Society Is Made of Narrative - Realizing This Is Awakening From The Matrix



In the movie The Matrix, humans are imprisoned in a virtual world by a powerful artificial intelligence system in a dystopian future. What they take to be reality is actually a computer program that has been jacked into their brains to keep them in a comatose state. They live their whole lives in that virtual simulation, without any way of knowing that what they appear to be experiencing with their senses is actually made of AI-generated code.



Life in our current society is very much the same. The difference is that instead of AI, it’s psychopathic oligarchs who are keeping us asleep in the Matrix. And instead of code, it’s narrative.

Society is made of narrative like the Matrix is made of code. Identity, language, etiquette, social roles, opinions, ideology, religion, ethnicity, philosophy, agendas, rules, laws, money, economics, jobs, hierarchies, politics, government, they’re all purely mental constructs which exist nowhere outside of the mental noises in our heads. If I asked you to point to your knee you could do so instantly and wordlessly, but if I asked you to point to the economy, for example, the closest you could come is using a bunch of linguistic symbols to point to a group of concepts. To show me the economy, you’d have to tell me a story.



Anyone who has ever experienced a moment of mental stillness knows that without the chatter, none of those things are part of your actual present experience. There is no identity, language, etiquette, social roles, opinions, ideology, religion, ethnicity, philosophy, agendas, rules, laws, money, economics, jobs, hierarchies, politics or government in your experience without the mental chatter about those things. There’s not even a “you” anywhere to be found, because it turns out that that’s made of narrative, too.

Without mental narrative, nothing is experienced but sensory impressions appearing to a subject with no clear shape or boundaries. The visual and auditory fields, the sensation of air going in and out of the respiratory system, the feeling of the feet on the ground or the bum in the chair. That’s it. That’s more or less the totality of life minus narrative.

When you add in the mental chatter, however, none of those things tend to occupy a significant amount of interest or attention. Appearances in the visual and auditory field are suddenly divided up and labeled with language, with attention to them determined by whichever threatens or satisfies the various agendas, fears and desires of the conceptual identity construct known as “you”. You can go days, weeks, months or years without really noticing the feeling of your respiratory system or your feet on the ground as your interest and attention gets sucked up into a relationship with society that exists solely as narrative.

“Am I good enough? Am I doing the right thing? Oh man, I hope what I’m trying to do works out. I need to make sure I get all my projects done. If I do that one thing first it might save me some time in the long run. Oh there’s Ashley, I hate that bitch. God I’m so fat and ugly. If I can just get the things that I want and accomplish my important goals I’ll feel okay. Taxes are due soon. What’s on TV? Oh it’s that idiot. How the hell did he get elected anyway? Everyone who made that happen is a Nazi. God I can’t wait for the weekend. I hope everything goes as planned between now and then.”

On and on and on and on. Almost all of our mental energy goes into those mental narratives. They dominate our lives. And, for that reason, people who are able to control those narratives are able to control us.

And they do.



Most people try to exert some degree of control over those around them. They try to influence how those in their family, social and employment circles think of them by behaving and speaking in a certain way. Family members will spend their lives telling other family members over and over again that they’re not as smart/talented/good as they think they are to keep them from becoming too successful and moving away. Romantic partners will be persuaded that they can never leave because no one else will ever love them. To varying degrees, they manipulate the narratives of individuals.

Then there are the people who’ve figured out that they can actually take their ability to influence the way people think about themselves and their world and turn it into personal profit. Cult leaders convince followers to turn over their entire lives in service to them. Advertisers convince consumers that they have a problem or deficiency that can only be solved with This Exciting New Product™. Ambitious rat race participants learn how to climb the corporate ladder by winning favor with the right people and inflicting small acts of sabotage against their competing peers. Ambitious journalists learn that they progress much further in their careers by advancing narratives that favor the establishment upon which the plutocrats who own the big media companies have built their kingdoms. They manipulate the narratives of groups.

And then, there are the oligarchs. The master manipulators. These corporate kings of the modern world have learned the secret that every ruler since the dawn of civilization has known: whoever controls the narratives that are believed by a society is the controller of that society. Identity, language, etiquette, social roles, opinions, ideology, religion, ethnicity, philosophy, agendas, rules, laws, money, economics, jobs, hierarchies, politics, government: all mental constructs which only influence society to the extent that they are believed and subscribed to by a significant majority of the collective. If you have influence over the things that people believe about those mental constructs, you have influence over society. You rule it. The oligarchs manipulate the narratives of entire societies.



This is why there have been book burnings, heretic burnings, and executions for mocking the emperor throughout history: ideas which differ from the dominant narratives about what power is, how money works, who should be in charge and so on are threatening to a ruler’s power in the exact same way that an assassin’s dagger is. At any time, in any kingdom, the people could have decided to take the crown off of their king’s head and place it upon the head of any common beggar and treat him as the new king. And, in every meaningful way, he would be the new king. The only thing preventing this from happening was dominant narratives subscribed to by the society at the time about Divine Right, fealty, loyalty, noble blood and so on. The only thing keeping the crown on a king’s head was narrative.

The exact same thing remains true today; the only thing that has changed is the narratives the public subscribe to. Because of what they are taught in school and what the talking heads on their screens tell them about their nation and their government, most people believe that they live in a relatively free democracy where accountable, temporary power is placed in the hands of a select few based on a voting process informed by the unregulated debate of information and ideas. Completely separate from the government, they believe, is an economy whose behavior is determined by the supply and demand of consumers. In reality, economics, commerce and government are fully controlled by an elite class of plutocrats, who also happen to own the media corporations which broadcast the information about the world onto people’s screens.

Control the narratives of economics and commerce, and you control economics and commerce. Control the narratives about politics and government, and you control politics and government. This control is used by the controllers to funnel power to the oligarchs, in this way effectively turning society into one giant energy farm for the elite class.

But it is possible to wake up from that narrative Matrix.



It isn’t easy, and it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes work. Inner work. And humility. Nobody likes acknowledging that they’ve been fooled, and the depth and extent to which we’ve all been fooled is so deeply pervasive it can be tempting to decide that the work is complete far before one is actually free. Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.

But, through sincere, humble research and introspection, it is possible to break free of the Matrix and see the full extent to which you and everyone you know has been imprisoned by ideas which have been programmed into social consciousness by the powerful. Not just in our adult lives, but ever since our parents began teaching us how to speak, think and relate to the world. Not just in the modern world, but as far back as history stretches to when the power-serving belief systems of societal structure and religion were promoted by kings and queens of old. All of society, and all of ourselves, and indeed all of the thoughts in our heads, have been shaped by those in power to their benefit. This is the reality that we were born into, and our entire personality structure has been filtered through and shaped by it.

For this reason, escaping from the power-serving propaganda Matrix necessarily means becoming a new creature altogether. The ideas, mental habits and ways of relating to the world which were formed in the Matrix are only useful for moving around inside of it. In order to relate to life outside of the power-promulgated narratives which comprise the very fabric of society, you’ve got to create a whole new operating system for yourself in order to move through life independently of the old programming designed to keep you asleep and controlled.

So it’s hard work. You’ll make a lot of mistakes along the way, just like an infant slowly learning to walk. But, eventually, you get clear of the programming.

And then you’re ready to fight.



Because at some point in this process, you necessarily come upon a deep, howling rage within. Rage at the oligarchic manipulators of your species, yes, but also rage against manipulation in all its forms. Rage against everyone who has ever tried to manipulate your narrative, to make you believe things about yourself or make other people believe things about you. Rage against anyone who manipulates anyone else to any extent. When your eyes are clear manipulation stands out like a black fly on a white sheet of paper, and your entire system has nothing to offer it but revulsion and rejection.

So you set to work. You set to work throwing all attempts to manipulate you as far away from yourself as possible, and expunging anyone from your life who refuses to stop trying to control your narrative. Advertising, mass media propaganda, establishment academia, everything gets purged from your life that wants to pull you back into the Matrix.

And they will try to pull you back in. Because our narratives are so interwoven and interdependent with everyone else’s, and so inseparable from our sense of ourselves, your rejection of the narrative Matrix will present as an existential threat to many of your friends and loved ones. You will see many people you used to trust, many of them very close to you, suddenly transform into a bunch of Agent Smiths right in front of your eyes, and they will shame you, guilt you, throw every manipulation tool they have at you to get you to plug the jack back into your brain. But because your eyes are clear, you’ll see it all. You won’t be fooled.

And then all you’ll want is to tear down the Matrix from its very foundations and plunge its controllers into irrelevance. You will set to work bringing down the propaganda prison that they have built up around your fellow humans in any way you can, bolt by bolt if you have to, because you know from your own experience that we are all capable of so much more than the puny gear-turning existence they’ve got everyone churning away at. You will despise the oligarchs for the obscene sacrilege that they have inflicted upon human majesty out of greed and insecurity, and you will make a mortal enemy of the entire machine that they have used to enslave our species.

And, because their entire kingdom is built upon maintaining the illusion of freedom and democracy, all they will have to fight back against you is narrative. They’ll try to shame you into silence by calling you a conspiracy theorist, they’ll have their media goons and manipulators launch smear campaigns against you, but because your eyes are clear, none of that will work. They’ve got one weapon, and it doesn’t work on you.



And you will set to work waking up humanity from the lie factory, using whatever skills you have, weakening trust in the mass media propaganda machine and opening eyes to new possibilities. And while doing so, you will naturally shine big and bright so the others can find you. And together, we’ll not only smash the narratives that imprison us like a human caterpillar swallowing the narrative bullshit and forcing it into the mouth of the next slave, but we’ll also create new narratives, better narratives, healthier narratives, for ourselves and for each other, about how the world is and what we want it to be.

Because here’s the thing: since it’s all narrative, anything is possible. Those who see this have the ability to plunge toward health and human thriving without any regard for the made-up reasons why such a thing is impossible, and plant seeds of light which sprout in unprecedented directions that never could have been predicted by someone plugged into to establishment how-it-is stories. Together, we can determine how society will be. We can re-write the rules. We are re-writing the rules. It’s begun already.

Out of the white noise of a failing propaganda machine, a new world is being born, one that respects the autonomy of the individual and their right to self-determination. One that respects our right to collaborate on large scales to create beautiful, healthy, helpful systems without the constant sabotage and disruption of a few power-hungry psychopaths who would rather rule than live. One that respects our right to channel human ingenuity into harmony and human thriving instead of warfare and greed. One that respects our right to take what we need, not just to survive but to thrive, and return it to the earth for renewal. One that respects the sovereign boundaries of not just ourselves and each other, but of the planet spaceship that we live in.

Unjack your cortex fully from the fear-soaked narratives of insanity, and let the true beauty of our real world flood your senses. Let the grief of what we have unknowingly done send you crashing to your knees in sorrow. And when you’re ready, stand up. We have much work to do.

Mystery of the 'Mandela Effect' - Are 'False Memories' Proof of Parallel Universes?



A controversial and intriguing theory suggests that 'false memories' could be proof of parallel universes.

Scientists are naturally divided on this topic and most think false memories are a result of how we misremember things. Yet, perhaps there is more to it than we are aware of. It has been suggested that people are sliding between multiple universes and that's how we can create very odd memories of something we have never seen or heard in this world.

We have previously discussed the possibility that some of our dreams may be glimpses of events taking place in an alternate reality, a parallel Universe.

Another intriguing theory is that parallel universes could explain the déjà vu phenomenon. It's the feeling, or impression that you have already witnessed or experienced a current situation.

For a long time, this eerie sensation has been attributed to everything from paranormal disturbances to neurological disorders, but it has also been suggested that there is a hidden connection between déjà vu and the existence of parallel universes.

The theory that 'false memories' can be traced to the existence of parallel universes is rather new, but we will undoubtedly hear much more about it in the near future.



Another intriguing possibility is that there is a hidden connection between déjà vu and the existence of parallel universes.

The Mandela Effect And It's Connection To Parallel Universes

The term 'Mandela Effect' was coined by blogger Fiona Broome when she discovered that she, along with many others, shared the same, distinct memory of former South African President Nelson Mandela dying in a South African prison in the 1980s.

Mandela died in 2013, in the comfort of his home, having served as South Africa's President for some time after the 80s.

Basically, the Mandela Effect refers to a phenomenon in which a large number of people share false memories of past events, referred to as confabulation in psychiatry.

Some have speculated that the memories are caused by parallel universes spilling into our own, while others explain the phenomenon as a failure of collective memory.

Gene A. Brewer, Ph.D, an Associate Professor at Arizona state University's Department of Psychology have studied memory through experiments and neuro-imaging and he doesn't think there is a connection between false memories and parallel universe.

"All of us fall victim to false memory. We all misremember things, and we do it in a stereotypical way," said Brewer.

"Our systems work very similarly to one another. So I may have a false memory, you may have a false memory, and those could be very similar to one another," Professor Brewer said.

Why Do We Misremember So Many Things?

According to Professor Brewer said it is due to recombination, or a daily process in which a person's brain takes fragments from the past, and tries to reassemble them in a way that makes sense.

"As you're trying to remember what the Monopoly Man may have looked like, you may inadvertently remember some bits and pieces about the planters peanut man," said Professor Brewer.



Professor Brewer explained that a human brain remembers the "top ha" * on both mascots, and subconsciously placed Mr. Peanut's eyeglass onto Monopoly Man's face.

Professor Brewer said the Mandela Effect can also be explained by a process called collective remembering.

"We communicate false memories through the groups that were associated to," said Brewer.

"That leads to a cultural false memory, where many people hold the same false belief that things happened that didn't really happen."

Dave Campbell, a medium and hypnotherapist has an entirely different opinion.

"Some people say past lives, some people say our souls split in many pieces, and we can experience many lives at the same time.

Sometimes, we have similar inventions in different universes at the same time, like microwave. In one universe, we might call it a microwave, and in another universe, we call it a quick cooker," Campbell said.

It will take some strong arguments and evidence to convince cognitive scientists that false memories are the result of peoples' visits to parallel worlds, especially since physicists still haven't found conclusive proof that parallel worlds do exist.

But all controversial theories are intriguing and should be investigated.

It cannot be denied that there is still so much we do not know about the nature of space and time, not to mention our role in the Universe...

What is The Matrix?

https://youtu.be/AGZiLMGdCE0

From one point of view, the Matrix is a central block of energy that is fed by millions of loops and tubes of energy—and those loops are all human actions that follow a script called:

THE HUMAN CONDITION.

“The human condition” is a fake image of the limitations of human life, plus all the implications and melodramas that follow from it.

You can imagine it as one vast bureaucracy, in which the workers are grossly unhappy with what is going on and yet love every misstep, mistake, postponement, crisis, and grinding routine.

It’s a culture. To one degree or another, it pervades every area of life.

As long as limitation is the overriding principle, the human-condition drama is going to play over and over again. The faces and names will change, but the production will go on.

Limitation has to do with: obscuring the existence, range, and power of imagination. Limitation is ultimately based on the PRETENSE THAT IMAGINATION IS AN UNIMPORTANT FACULTY.

Once you accept that pretense, life as we know it and the “human condition” follow as night follows day.

The “human condition” and its implications are really coming into their own now—they are being promoted as the reason we must have “share-and-care”global governance that continues to advance its agenda. Which includes cradle to grave medical status as a patient with constant need for treatment.

Global governance resonates closely with the Matrix.

The US Constitution was written for an agrarian society of about six million people who were living in a relatively small area along the east coast of the continent.

Thomas Jefferson’s view was that each generation, every 20 years or so, should write their own Constitution. This is a rather staggering point, ignored by most so-called conservatives.

Jefferson also believed a Republic would succeed only if the population was rather small.

So, for example, we might now have 50 or 60 separate Republics on this continent—each one writing a new Constitution every 20 years.

If that were the case, the present national government in Washington DC would be a thing of the past. Gone.

The 50 or 60 Republics would hopefully maintain good relations with one another, and one assumes Bill of Rights provisions would be part of each Republic’s basic law.

Decentralized government.

I would favor at least 200 Republics on this continent.

That way, citizen participation in government would actually mean something.

One Republic, so-called, with a population of 330,000,000 people, trying to fulfill The General Good of All, is going to fail progressively and spectacularly. The taxation rate alone is a disaster. Further, the attitude of the central government is going to be shaped by people who think in terms of 330 million people—planners, problem solvers, bureaucrats and administrators. And this tendency is going to slant action in the direction of attending to the masses, as units or groupings, rather than as individuals. It’s a self-defeating proposition.

I believe a man like Alexander Hamilton, however, saw this future and did not flinch from it, because in his eyes “the people” were doomed from the beginning by their nature and character. They had to be ruled from above.

It was Jefferson who was more optimistic about the potential of the individual.

In our world today, we are seeing big governments getting bigger—as a strategy for solving their unsolvable problems. The venality and greed and duplicity of political leaders are all about extending top-down control. It’s not just a plan, it’s what happens when the nation is so large, because the people who naturally gravitate to “serve” have this predilection for power/control.

The weave of the reality-Matrix and big government harmonize. They both exist to make people passive receptors.

“I’m basically John Jones living in the Untied States in 2011. I’m trying to get ahead. I’m encountering problems and trying to solve them. I’m looking out on the world from this point of view. I have no reservoir of inherent power. I’m striving. I’m doing the best I can…”

This is the shrunken attitude of a member of Matrix reality.

It is fostered by a minimized and restricted sense of possibility.

And THAT naturally seeps in when imagination is not the prime piece of the equation.

Imagination not only conceives of extended possibility, it projects it into space and time AND BEYOND.

When imagination swings into operation, physical reality is more an occasion for creating new realities, rather than a definer of reality.

The difference is crucial.

In 1932, Henri Bergson wrote, “The universe is a machine for creating gods.”

The Matrix plus John Jones is a collaboration that brings gods into being, the result of which is passivity.

As I’ve written before, the universe (Matrix) is one work of art among a potentially infinite number of works of art. The idea of exploring one work of art to the point of obsession, to the point of forgetting all the other potential works of art and the “means of their production” (imagination) is the sine qua non of the Matrix.

Imagination exceeds the space-time continuum.

You have a choice. You can go along for the ride in Matrix, or you can imagine imagination and embark on the journey of journeys.

Most people are not up to contemplating the idea of consciously creating, much less spontaneously improvising, which involves a kind of merging with what they would create.

But for those who can grasp such an idea, the world and the universe aren’t any longer arbiters and rule makers and guides. They are inventions that are already here.

Ensuing years of research resulted in my three recent Matrix collections, of which Exit From The Matrix is most focused on practical techniques of imagination — to make your deepest desires fact in the world.
