Your most useful tool is Philosophy – even if you have never heard of the word.
To the masses philosophy is boring and irrelevant, but is this just another myth to deflect us from the truth? Can a real jewel be so smeared that it passes unnoticed?
Many people are enslaved to its power without even knowing the meaning of the word. Few appreciate what a useful science it is. A science that enables us to live a life on earth.
You need Philosophy if you want to leave the Matrix, to take control of your life and to thrive. You need it if you want to zoom out and see the big picture. And you need it if you want to understand how men are influenced and controlled.
You couldn’t function as a human being without a philosophy. It determines your view of the world, it effects your thinking, and therefore your choices, and therefore your life.
In Episode 97 of “Living outside the Matrix” Nigel discusses philosophy and the ideas of Ayn Rand with Razi Ginzberg founder of the Ayn Rand Centre in London which can be found here aynrandcentre.co.uk.
