The Esoteric Bunker is a metaphor for life and how we perceive that existence.
The Bunker represents all the real challenges we each face living on this planet. The Bunker is the physical, material, dog eat dog world of survival, that each of us experiences. It is the brick and mortar, steel and concrete, of our industrialized society. The land, sea, and air of the place we call home. It is the thousands of political, social, religious, economic, and family relationships shared with our fellow sojourners on this big, blue planet we call the Earth.
The Esoteric portion is more elusive, but ultimately more important. I define esoteric as the non-material parts of our existence. It is our mental narrative of the world we live in, our role in that narrative, and the ideas and images that define and give meaning to that world.
Our central problem is the way we think. It is only in challenging our thinking that our chance for a better world exists.
Our thinking often provides us a wrong view of reality because we misidentify the true sources of the conflict and confusion we experience. It is our conviction that most people in the world are not only kind and cooperative but that this kindness and cooperative inclination, is their default nature.
So how do we explain the chaotic nature of the planet and the role of our country in that world?
