Krishnamurti on Programming and Conditioning

Gems

Jiddu Krishnamurti asserts that the activities of the computer will take over the activities of the brain, and can even invent a new religion.

“Our consciousness has been programmed for thousands and thousands of years and we have been conditioned, programmed, wired…to be, to think as individuals. To think as separate entities struggling, struggling conflict – from the moment you’re born until you die. We are programmed to it. We have accepted. We have never challenged it, we have never asked, if it possible to live a life totally, absolutely without conflict.”

“And the religious organizations throughout the world have maintained this individual salvation. And we are questioning very seriously whether there is an individual consciousness. Whether you as a human consciousness have a separate consciousness from the rest of mankind. You have to answer this. You can not just play with it. My consciousness and yours; if we’ve been brought up, programmed conditioned to the individual then my consciousness is all this activities of thought. Fear is thought…”

“The suffering, the anxiety, the uncertainty, the deep regrets, wounds, the burden of centuries of sorrow is part of thought. Thought is responsible for all this.”
