The pond is a metaphor for society and the goings-on in your current Society. The Pond represents many things. The Pond is the polarity of good versus bad. The Pond is the Us versus Them mentality. The Pond is the media. The Pond is a propaganda machine that you’re all victims of. The pond is corporations that are selling you everything that you think your heart desires. All of you have put your focus on this metaphorical pond and this plan has distracted you from all the wonderful things that you could be doing in your life. And yet you don’t even realize this. You continue to revolve your life around this pond. There is no expansion of your mind. You are satisfied sitting around concentrating on what is being fed to you. You are satisfied supposedly by just looking at this Pond of capitalism, of propaganda, of goods and services that you don’t really need. You seek the answers there. You seek satisfaction there. And yet within you there is dissatisfaction.
If everything that has happened or that I can think of or that I can or will experience already exists, then does that mean that everything is fate and already decided for me in my life? Have I no free will or any actual choices? Is life actually preordained and I’m just a pawn on a chessboard?
