As the 2020 election cycle ramps up, voters can expect a flurry of targeted advertisements fueled by big data on their doorsteps, inboxes and social media feeds. While microtargeting based on demographic information is not a new trend in campaign strategy, campaigns traditionally relied on analyzing voter behavior within broader categories such as age or gender before big data was easily accessible.
All the pieces Perceived is a Projection of the Conditioned Thoughts

All the pieces perceived is a projection of the thoughts inside thoughts. However the thoughts is nothing however a bundle of conditioning, to which you haven’t any say within the matter.
Each thought, each feeling, each response and each sensation is conditioned — conditioned by a physique’s bodily qualities, by household, by training, by tradition, by media, and by one’s creativeness. We by no means see issues as they’re, solely as we predict they’re. As such, there is no such thing as a “world” exterior of this conditioning, because the world itself is nothing however an look arising inside this thoughts — an “look” that’s by no means the identical and is frequently altering.
If you happen to examine your individual direct expertise, right here and now, and drop your entire realized ideas and data, even for only a temporary second, you will note that there is no such thing as a world “on the market” in any way. There may be solely “This” — this suchness that I’m, this alive-Beingness that one way or the other encompasses all seeming issues, together with perceptions of the world, even together with perceptions of my so-called private “self”.
There isn’t any chaos exterior of the thoughts. It’s the thoughts that’s the chaos, as there could be no perceived world with out it. Empty of the thoughts’s chatter, there’s solely the stillness of your simple presence.
Attune the thoughts with the pure silence of this Consciousness that you’re and absolutely the nothingness of your Presence of Being shall be realized as the only Reality upon which all different obvious “issues” rely. Are you able to see that Consciousness — your SELF — is inherently empty of all issues? You ARE this stunning, nonetheless and conscious vacancy.
We create illusions by believing no matter conditioned ideas are showing to us in any given second. By behavior, we repeat mantras time and again in our minds, meditating them into beliefs. Akin to I’m depressed, I’m offended, or I’m caught. Ideas persuade us that we’d like extra of this and fewer of that, which trigger fixed dissatisfaction and stress. But when we ignore this stream of noise from the thoughts and as an alternative relaxation within the silence of Self, which continues to be and unchanging — endlessly REAL — then, all illusions will dissolve within the gentle of this Consciousness that you just ARE.
