The “glue” that makes us all average, normal, and clueless

The “glue” that makes us all average, normal, and clueless

Tragic events, crises, threats are designed to capture our minds and hold us in a state of emergency, whether or not such a state is officially declared by our august leaders.

This “glue” is one aspect of the Matrix.

And of course, when events seem to threaten our very existence, these leaders are all too eager to enact responses and solutions that make the original crises pale by comparison.

We couldn’t be blamed for defining “solution” as “whatever is worse than the problem.”

In this sordid mix, what part of ourselves is being held down? What capability are we unwilling to exercise? What does fear keep us from doing?

It’s obvious that freedom takes a hit. We become more cautious about exercising our freedoms. However, freedom isn’t just an idea or an empty condition. Freedom implies power. Individual power.

If it didn’t, who would care one way or another about freedom? Who would make an issue out of it?

If each one of us didn’t have power, freedom would be no more than a fairy tale with which we could amuse ourselves.

The exploration of power is not something you’ll find in a school or in the workplace or in a community group. It’s a kind of taboo. People don’t talk about it.

Not talking about it makes as much sense as writing a book about the sun and neglecting to mention it gives off heat.

The repressed conversation about power is a cultural artifact. We’re somehow led to believe it’s impolite to bring up the subject. It’s self-aggrandizing. It runs against the grain of appearing humble. It seems to legislate against the mandatory premise that “we’re all in this together.”

What does this taboo conceal?

Power is the capacity to imagine and create.

Rather than being about “the truth,” power is about inventing new truth, in the sense that, when you create, you bring something into the world that wasn’t there before.

After a great artist or scientist makes imagination into fact, others then gather around and analyze the truth of what has just appeared. But the cardinal happening was the invention itself.

Even more important was the capacity to make imagination into fact.


Flowing from freedom.

This is what crisis and threat and tragedy seem to blanket with despair. But that is an illusion.

Nothing can happen in this world that changes or diminishes your inherent power, unless you decide it does.

Staged crises are also an example of power. They are perverse art flung up on the screen of our perception, designed to make us feel we have to give in. Give in to what? To the sacrifice of our own capacity to imagine and create reality.

Somebody else made reality for me.”

That idea is also the hallmark of hypnosis. The subject, in a trance, accepts what is already real as the final summing up of his life. His only job is to adjust his actions to the world as it is.

The Matrix Revealed

There are many examples. Look at the mesmerizing tonnage of legend launched to convince the population of ancient India that the caste system was a cosmological necessity, given the rules of universal justice and the regulations governing reincarnation.

This “spiritual system” was, finally, a cosmic fascism. It was a work of art designed and managed by the aristocratic and priest classes, to cement their control over the population. In other words, these rulers invented a reality for the masses that thereafter commanded:

We made reality for you. Your job is now to live inside it.”

Likewise, in recent centuries, the rise of science was twisted and extrapolated into its own legend: materialism.

There is nothing beyond particles whirling in space. That’s it. That’s what is real, everywhere. You live inside this idea. Adjust. Reject any thoughts that don’t mesh with it.”

And against all this is, if we want it, freedom. Power. The individual capacity to imagine and create reality.

How far does this power extend?

Life on planet Earth appears to mandate against any far-reaching exercise of creative power. That, too, is an illusion.

There are no limits.

The whole repeating covert op of tragedy, tragedy, tragedy, grieving, grieving, grieving, coming together, healing…the whole endless and repeating ceremony is put there to assure us that we are little creatures with nowhere else to go but Acceptance. This, we are told, is our only option for redemption.

This idea has been sold in the marketplace of spiritual commerce since the dawn of time.

It’s a straight-out lie. It’s told, again and again, to serve rulers.

And rulers want to make sure that the number of creatively powerful individuals is kept to a bare minimum. Otherwise, the single monolithic reality they have invented and sold would shake and fall apart.

Drowned in a multidimensional triumph of many powerful individuals creating many brilliant and simultaneous realities.

That is the true unalloyed meaning of an open society.

When dreaming breaks through the chains of mind control

When dreaming breaks the chains of mind control

by Jon Rappoport

December 22, 2012

This article is based on many interviews I did with the late hypnotherapist Jack True. Jack was my friend and colleague. He helped me publish my first book, AIDS INC. We later worked together to research dimensions of mind control.

Jack invented a number of brilliant techniques he used with his patients. He stopped doing traditional hypnotherapy when, as he put it, he realized patients “were already in a hypnotic state when they first walked through the door.”

So Jack was in the business of de-hypnosis. How incredibly different this was from diagnosing people with fiction mental disorders and then dispensing toxic drugs to them.

One of Jack’s most powerful techniques involved having patients, after they were in a light neutral trance, invent dreams.

They already do it while they’re sleeping, “ he said. “Why not have them do it when they’re awake?”

Dreaming while asleep is one of those times when people can break the chains of their internal programming.

People see reality through filters. They automatically and subconsciously use feelings, ideas, preconceptions to perceive reality. This is programming.

Utilizing such filters, people construct “story lines” to describe reality. These stories tend to follow well-worn paths. They repeat.

People become bored. They look for a new surprise to give them a jolt of adrenaline that will carry them past their old stories.

Dreams crack the egg of familiar stories. Dreams don’t have to obey any normal notions of plot line. A dream can cut off a developing story and jump to an entirely different scene. It can break the laws of physics. It can bring in new characters from nowhere. It can contradict itself.

Our dreams let us know that we want to liberate ourselves from familiar and well-worn and ordinary and tiresome patterns. But in dreams, we don’t simple think about liberation. We experience it. We escape the matrix.

Unfortunately, people are often so predisposed to interpret their dreams that they miss the essence of them: a dream is an adventure; it’s a ride out beyond the structures that narrow life.

Dreaming is also a clue that we have the inherent power to move beyond our programming, our filters, our artificially chronic perception of reality.

A few of Jack’s patients, the ones he had invent dozens and even hundreds of dreams in his office, experienced what people like to call paranormal phenomena. Jack didn’t use that label. He said it implied an “extra talent.”

Everybody can ‘do paranormal’ because it’s part of what we are,” he said.

One patient he worked with for six months, a dyed-in-the-wool engineer, discovered he had a “peculiar knack.” Among his wide circle of friends, several were suffering from arthritis. He could “focus on them” and alleviate their symptoms, to the point where two of them stopping taking medications.

Through interviews, I verified this was so.

The Matrix Revealed

JACK TRUE, the most creative hypnotherapist on the face of the planet, is featured in THE MATRIX REVEALED. Jack’s anti-Matrix understanding of the mind and how to liberate it is unparalleled. His insights are unique, staggering. 43 interviews, 320 pages. That is just a faction of what THE MATRIX REVEALED has to offer.

I asked Jack’s patient how he did this.

I found I could ‘see into space,’” he said. “I could look into what seemed like a series of different spaces in their bodies. It made no rational sense to me, but I went with it. In these spaces, there were various colors. I began to sort them out. Certain shades of color were signs of debilitation. So I homed in on them and found threads that were wrapped in knots. I undid the knots.”

Needless to say, this analysis of disease doesn’t match any conventional picture. But the Jack’s patient was motivated to follow his intuition, and it bore fruit.

He told me, “The idea of overlapping spaces was something I’d tried to toy with as an engineer. But I couldn’t get anywhere. I couldn’t find the mathematics or the experiments to make any progress. The idea that I could actually see these spaces was something that never entered my mind. When all of a sudden I could see them, I rejected the whole thing at first. But I went back to it. I decided it was legitimate.

The spaces looked like overlaid pieces of film. Eventually, I could see them separately. That’s when the colors showed up.

Occasionally, when I’m sitting in my office looking out the window, the scene out there separates into different spaces. It’s as if the space we all recognize is actually composed of elements. We settle on the resolution of those elements and see it as one [continuous] thing.”

Much like projecting separate frames of a film transmits the impression of continuous motion?

Not exactly,” he said. “It would be more like projecting a dozen separate films, one on top of another, at the same time, on to a screen. The audience sees, somehow, one resolution produced by all the films.”

A hologram?

If a hologram,” he said, “is essentially a lot of information that generates a three or four dimensional coherent picture, then what I’m describing is not quite the same thing.”

I told him about a drawing I once did. In my studio, on a table, I had a sheet of white paper. Whenever I did ink drawings, I laid a new sheet over that basic sheet, which stayed there for several months.

One day, I looked at the “under-sheet,” and I saw three faces. They were composed, as it were, of leftover marks that had bled through from all the drawings I’d been doing. The faces were floating among hundreds of other ink-marks.

At first, I thought the three faces weren’t real. I was just “making them up.” So I took a large marker pen and filled in everything on the under-sheet except those three quite detailed faces.

Lo and behold, the faces were there. They were very distinct. I showed them to several friends and they saw them immediately.

Jack’s patient said, “Yes. That would be more like it. The drawings you’d been doing were ‘other spaces.’ They overlapped on that one under-sheet. And then you had three faces, you had a resolution created by many different overlapping spaces. That’s a pretty good analogy.” [A better analogy these days would be image layering, using computers.]

I asked him why he thought Jack’s technique had enabled him to sprout this new capacity to see separate spaces and help several people with arthritis.

Jack had me invent dreams. All sorts of dreams. I created the dreams myself. Jack wasn’t making suggestions. After a couple of months, I began to believe in what I was doing.”


I felt my own creative power,” he said. “And the reality of what I was creating, the dreams, looked to me like they were worlds of their own. Something clicked. I felt a shift. When I was motivated to help my friends, I found I could.”

There is a connection here to an ancient Tibetan practice, in which the student is directed to make a very specific “mental image” of a character and hold it in place for a long time. That’s a shorthand description of the practice.

The student may work many months or even years on this project. If he succeeds, he becomes aware that the physical universe is a product of mind, at which point he is able to change reality (AKA telekinesis, manifestation).

Jack’s patient was aware of this Tibetan practice. “I thought of it as a legend, a myth. I don’t think of it that way anymore.”
