The human mind is not only easily deceived; it is, in fact, intrinsically unable to even tell truth from falsity, due to the very innate structure of the mind itself and the limitations of inherent brain physiology. To protect itself, the mind is blind to its own limitations and thinks that accumulating information will resolve its problems. Unfortunately, the mind is unable to discern truth, and so it girds itself with endless beliefs. Ours is the most informed civilization in history, yet it has become even more incapacitated in trying to find even the most obvious and simple solutions. This book is designed to be a life raft for those who are drowning in the social maelstrom. It provides a beacon of light in the darkness of confusion and relentless ambiguity. In addition, the Scale of Consciousness provides a means of discerning degrees and levels of truth and veracity like a thermometer indicates temperature.
