Thank you Mario. And while we can never actually 'know' anything, I will tell you why I describe our times as the "Age of Transparency". I have been using that term for almost two decades now and the further into the 2020's we get, the more I recognize it. I dont think it actually started but instead is just part of a natural cycle that waxes and wanes just like everything else. Its only to fair to point out that when I came up with this term, the internet was just kicking in to be the informational powerhouse that it is today. Also, I was also experiencing my own personal transformative experience where all was seen as naked reality. So, I recognize that to claim an age of transparency for all is a projection of my own experience but I also recognize that this is all we are capable of. So projection or not, it is the way I view the world. So, I will share with you just how I actually experience what I term the "Age of Transparency". Every single issue that is happening in our modern world is nothing new at all. Its all the same tensions and resulting dynamics as ever before but now everything is out in the open. For example. it is not a new idea that the stock market is rigged but now its all out in the open. Science has always been co-opted by businessmen but now that's out in the open. The governmental bodies of our nations have never been interested in an Enlightened free society and thats all out in the open now. The world that we find our selves in....where you are told to choose a side is the world that always existed. I happen to find this world easier than the previous world where the feeling you got was that most humans were all on the same page and if you didn't jive with the status quo then you were marginalized until you fit in. So, some of the more positive aspects of the "Age of Transparency" is the abundance of enlightening material such as Dzogchen which has been kept in tight secrecy until only recent times. We can get into this more but I am sick with covid right now so pardon my shortness. BUt thanks so much for the questions and please feel free to ask for any clarifications etc.
