Decision Mechanics Revealed

You are standing before a golden weight. It is a cylinder made of gold, that has an iron bulb formed on its top, which is intended as a handle useful for cranes to grip, lift and move the weight.

Behind you are two mechanical devices, made of iron and brass, they have many gears and armatures, but they are both devices whose function is to provide you with the ‘lift’ you need in your resources to move you during the next project you are about to begin. Both devices have an output arm that lifts, and both devices have a saddle made to hold the golden weight, which powers that device.

As I looked closer, I noticed the first device was easy to understand. Although it has many gears and levers, most of them are only decoration. In reality, that device is simply a fancy looking teeter totter. When the gold weight is put in the saddle, the other side of the fancy armature lifts all the way up immediately. Once the armature reaches the top, it trips a switch and dumps the gold weight out of the saddle and the armature drops immediately again to the bottom.

The other device has all the same gears and levers but this one has harnessed all the parts. When the weight is placed in this one, the armature rises slowly and evenly as the gears and other levers spin and toggle quite actively until it gets to the top. Unlike the other device, this one does not dump out the gold weight, so once the top is reached, that armature remains there permanently.

Then I heard a rugged construction worker who was smoking a cigar. He was yelling a question at you and was becoming impatient. He was running the crane and wanted to know which saddle you want him to move the gold weight into.

This vision is intended to show you that the first device is a trick. Choose the second option even though it appears like it will take longer.

Gears of Deception & Promise

Doubt’s Gravity

I looked in a cave and saw spikes sticking up and down, made of rock like stone icicles hanging from the ceiling, and piles of upside down icicles sitting on the floor. An angel appeared beside me and asked if I wanted to look inside and find out more about these structures. I said yes, please show me more.

We walked inside and it was difficult to walk around because of the icicles on the floor. Once we were inside we found a clearing where we could see these structures all around us. The angel lit up the cavern and all the stone spikes gave the room a strange feeling.

“Do you want to know what these are?” The angel asked.

“What are they?” I responded.
He said “These are the structures of faith and fear and how they form under the influence of doubt. The hanging spikes are evidence of the children of God as they cling to God’s word. The spikes on the floor are evidence of the fears of Mankind. Both are growing larger.

I thought about the angel’s response for a moment and then asked “If the spikes on the ceiling are faith, then why are they getting bigger and moving down?”

He didn’t answer but motioned for me to follow him. He led me deeper inside the cave and the his light grew dimmer.

As we walked though, the light started becoming unnecessary because there was a new light shining from deeper inside the cave. When we turned to the left at the last crevice, the cave opened up and we found ourselves inside a much larger room where the rock was all white and instead of spikes hanging and sitting, there were much larger pillars all smooth and polished looking.

The angel spoke: “The spikes outside were formed by faith, as people cling desperately to the word of God, but are pulled down by the force of doubt. The spikes on the floor are formed by fear but they rise by the drawing power of God’s love. But in here, these pillars are formed out of a pure faith where doubt has no influence. These pillars also represent faith but since there is no doubt in the hearts of these, the pillars are able to grow in both directions without being deformed. The ceiling in here does not need the support of these pillars, nor do the pillars require the strength of their bond to the ceiling… or floor, but they exist together anyway as a testament to the unity between the Bride and the Lamb.”

Before I could ask any more questions, we were back outside in daylight.

The angel instructed once more “Doubt has been a powerful force but its influence is not supposed to exist in the Kingdom of Peace. You must convince the people to develop their faith to the extent that the laws of doubt are abolished here.”

Start here…” he said as he pulled out a round ball from inside his robe and held it out to me. As I reached for it, the ball became like a computer monitor and I could look inside it. I saw your face, but only part of it was there. Your one cheek and one eye were missing… not grotesquely, just… there was nothing at all, like part of the picture was gone. I kept looking but the angel told me I would not find the missing pieces here… I would need to learn to overcome doubt myself so I could teach you how to stop listening to doubt’s voice as well.

When I looked up again, I was transported to a sea and I had to tread water. As I waited there, I heard a voice speak again… it said only “Swim, you will not overcome by remaining still.”
