You're missing something here. Don't limit this to only your ethical control units which lend logically towards free-will. There is also the exertion of control units outside of ourselves that influences us in a way that we can only really consider compulsory. Free-will alone doesn't constitute the totality of the active principle of our reality on/within us.
Why are others not "sharing their maps" (research, knowledge, experience)? Is it a matter of choosing NOT to exercise independent though, even though the capacity is there?
I simply cannot understand why people withhold knowledge that can be beneficial to others. Has the world become that selfish?
Someone, please explain it to me.
Consider the current developmental level of the species. Given that most of us are archetypal humans, sharing the same general landscape, many may not feel that they have much of a different landscape to share.
I don't know that selfish is as fitting a concept here as perhaps complacency. I still find myself rooting around that within myself here and there. It doesn't really go away once we're programmed to be pacified and accepting of how things are. The trick is in reorienting and rerouting that inner energy devoted to acceptance of things as they are to the inverse function, a mostly non-existent thing within us, the driving spirit behind what I think you are missing in discussions in the forum. This goes back to the conversation we had on CH a couple of years ago about being at peace (passive) but there being a difference in peace as it's sold in our waking reality and peace that is active.
