Meta-life outside this continuum, archetypes, and the Zodiac
by Jon Rappoport

The most profound inner goals of the individual, and how those goals are pursued, out of view, are ignored by science, philosophy, and psychology. These goals are, most often, ignored even by the individual himself, who isn’t aware of them.
Here are my notes from a 1992 conversation with hypnotherapist Jack True. Colleague and friend, Jack spent his career devising ways to wake up people who, as he put it, were “already in a state of hypnosis”:
You can take any object, event, or structure and look at it as the end result of a cause-and-effect chain, or you can see it as a spontaneous creation/presence in this very moment.
The first way is a pattern that gives rise to societies, civilizations, and history.
To see an object, structure, or event as a spontaneous creation of this very moment, however, is something else again. This perception has vastly different “production values.” For example, the pen sitting on your desk ceases to be merely something that is born out of the causative action of tiny particles in motion or a manufacturing process. Instead, it is a vivid and instantaneous presence which has no reference to time.
And although modern science departed from this path, there is another kind of possible science. It is a subjective approach, whereby machines and devices and technologies are invented that operate FOR THE INVENTOR and for the inventor alone.
He is no longer trying to unearth what is possible within the constraints of the so-called objective continuum. He is building vehicles for himself.
The universe can function as a service provider to the scientist of imagination. It can feed into his personal theater. It can eagerly do so, as if it has been waiting for such a moment to show this aspect.
Who knows? If we had 100,000 truly subjective scientists on this planet, brilliant and tireless improvisers, we might see changes in the continuum. The energies liberated in the process would consign the precious Law of Conservation of Energy to a shelf in a small-town museum of curios.
“If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.” — William Blake
Rather than accepting the proposition that the observer changes what he’s observing—a passive formulation—opt for this: the inventor changes what he invents. He spontaneously accommodates it to himself.
Time is a like a May pole, its many decorations streaming from the central column. It holds together all the artifacts of Universe. However, it is eventually seen as a pretender. It maintains its position by implying that, without it, everything would spin into chaos. On closer examination, it turns out that serial time is a convenience for a style of communication and perception—a style to which we are all accustomed.
But whether we know it or not, each one of us branches off and explores dimensions in which this time is absent. We do it every day, albeit briefly.
An archetype is an immense island in the sea. It readily acknowledges the size of the individual soul, the YOU—even if a great deal of the soul, as it lives out this life here, is submerged under the social fabric. All archetypes engage the subject of time in their own ways.
The archetype of the Zodiac itself is built on time. Time of the year, of course, but more than that. The array of astrological signs (archetypes) is, in a sense, ABOUT time.
The Zodiac revolves around a central core of time, and as such actually stands outside the flow of events.
In that case, every sign of the Zodiac, when accessed deeply enough, would contain a soul-strategy for dealing with time. For entering into and exiting from time.
Our culture does not deal with such matters at all.
But the individual soul does. The soul WANTS to be able to move in and out of time and understand time and become a master of time.
Simultaneously, the soul wants to experience life within the serial flow of events. And having moved inside that sphere, it wants to work with time in the same way a sculptor works with clay.
The soul wants to come into time, work with time, and leave time. Not just once, but in many, many periods and moments of existence.
As an aside, the major fascination with movies has to do with the obvious ability of the film maker to organize, disorganize, arrange, and cut up time. In movies, the soul recognizes its own capacity to do these things.
Certain British novelists have dealt with the whole notion of time. CS Lewis, in his Narnia Chronicles, depicts how time passes differently in Narnia, how years and years amount to only moments on Earth. And Lewis acknowledged a deep debt to David Lindsay, who wrote the staggering Voyage to Arcturus, in which almost every episode takes place in its own unique dimension—where time passes in its own way…
We have almost no language to express the different possible ways in which we—individually and uniquely—experience time. In the absence of that language, we assume we all live in the same identically conceived and felt time.
Superficially, we share time as a “common cause.” We want its passage and events to be shared. We want to hold time together, as it were.
In truth, each one of us is on the road toward destroying the time prison, and this particular revolt against the empire has consequences that are bringing us closer and closer to the return of an era of Magic:
The waterfall with no source except spontaneous creation…you walk down a dim staircase with a key to a door that will open into a state of affairs light years beyond any conception of ordinary time…a zero point where everything stops and Consecutive Events are revealed as an illusion…the simultaneous ability to take the whole universe and put it in the palm of your hand and also live in a small cottage outside a village that is outside a town that is outside a city that is on a planet on a remote edge of a galaxy…
Multiple cascades of desire and fulfillment—mixing, mixing, mixing together, effervescing and radiating, beyond the goonish strictures of minds proud of limits…
A future in which the energies of desire and the energies of fulfillment-of-desire are One. Everything is fulfillment. Every action is elastic and far-reaching and yet self-reflexive. The soul, at every moment, feels the light of desire and realization of desire.
It is no longer necessary to want something. Everything is wanting and everything is having. Desire and fulfillment arc and surge into each other and become, again, the basic Substance. The old categories are destroyed. The old teachings are swept away. The deceptive paths and ways are toppled, crumble, and fall into the waves.
The society in which we live doesn’t begin to touch these realities. It is organized to exclude them. And we, the actors, pretend we don’t understand them. That is why archetypes persist. They are touchstones. They remind us that, subconsciously, we are working out our futures on an entirely different level.
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.
Movies were originally dreams put up on the screen. The new medium was quite naturally conceived of as an opportunity to show super-real events to ourselves that paralleled our sleeping dreams. Sudden shifts of venue, broken plot lines, conversations pregnant with layers of meaning, disappearing objects, levitation, threat, disaster, ecstasy, the rules of entrainment and normalcy destroyed.
Release from the serial time prison.
Yet, soon enough, movies were brought to heel. They spooled out stories for the masses that stimulated gross sticky sentimentality. They defined the so-called human condition. They played up disasters and wars. They eventually utilized new technologies to create various dark apocalyptic scenarios. They assessed audience common denominators and focused on box office numbers above all.
Instead of reflecting our desire to go beyond this continuum as individuals, movies give us claustrophobic threats to the normal average life. In doing so, they try to shut more doors to liberation. They present two options: destruction, or “the joy” of living as worker bees in a collectivist society.
All this propagandizing provides the strongest clue that we, as individuals, want to escape from the chains of limited perception. Otherwise, why bother trying to push these limits on us?
But the propaganda will not stand. The future we desire will come to pass. Because we make it. No matter how long it takes, we will come to the place where our own imagination overtakes the reality that has been painted for us on the cave wall.
This isn’t, as some fearful people believe, about a religious dichotomy featuring the Devil and God. It isn’t about sitting in a room and hoping we don’t succumb to some “evil influence.” That’s just more propaganda. It’s built to hem us in. It’s one more fairy tale in the pantheon of constructed stories aimed at keeping us rigid and small. It’s a joke.
The evil in the world is patent. It’s there for anyone who wants to look and see it. It comes from people. They do evil. By choice. One of the cardinal precepts of any society dedicated to justice is stopping and curtailing evil.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. Because we invent that light and make it real.
What we call the universe is our picture of it. The universe and its laws are how we define ourselves as inhabitants of a fixed reality. We can proudly take that picture to our graves and beyond, or we can explore our existence outside this space-time-energy construct.
The latter course is the one taken by true artists and true inventors. It always has been. It has no boundaries.
This isn’t secret-society stuff. It isn’t about overthrowing morality. Secret societies do all their hogwash and gobbledygook and ritual because they lack the one element that really makes a difference: the individual creating new realities. Instead, secret societies opt for license (not freedom), hoping this will open ultimate doors. They’re wrong.
It is healthy and good to discover deeper levels of deception around us in the world IF, at the same time, we are inventing our most profound desires as fact in the world.
