Not everything is “predictive programming”

Not everything is “predictive programming”

The term “predictive programming” is used to describe film and literature that portray dystopian futures, predict these futures…but are covertly aimed at preparing audiences to accept those futures.

Under that definition, any science fiction novel or film could be casually classified as mind control programming.

There is a deeper point to be made here. Science fiction, among its effects, stimulates the imagination of its readers or viewers.

That is a good thing for people who know they have imaginations. They can take off on their own and conceive of other possibilities. They can view reality from a wider perspective. They can examine present trends and institutions and see how provincial, corrupt, and limiting they actually are.

However, if a person doesn’t really know he has his own imagination… almost everything he takes in from the world contains a component of mind control programming.

That’s the deeper fact.

The solution isn’t trying to stem the tide of futuristic films and novels. The solution is becoming more aware; in particular, it’s becoming more aware that imagination can and does entertain unlimited scenarios.

The solution is becoming familiar and intimate with one’s own imagination.

Without that step, a person is only half of what he could be.

Shapeless fear of what is coming at us from media, from Hollywood, turns into just another hopeless version of trying to escape from the world.

Just as the fear of germs (which are everywhere and can never be contained) is non-productive, whereas building up the power of the immune system is the key…in the same way, trying to nullify the flood of media is non-productive.

The answer to images and portents of dystopia is the cultivation of one’s own imagination, which is far larger and more flexible than those manufactured portents.

And if you want to take this out to society as a whole, the solution involves a kind of education that is relatively rare: exposing the young to the scope of their own imaginations.

Of course, in places where various fundamentalisms rule, such an approach would be considered sinful. And these are the places where people are most phobic and hateful about “predictive programming.” In other words, they’re sealing their own fate.

On a scale from one to 100, where 100 represents the imagination operating at theoretical full capability, the entire power of all predictive programming would stand at about four.

To put it another way, as a person accesses and deploys his own imagination to greater degrees, the influence of predictive programming decreases drastically.

In my collection, Exit From The Matrix, this is my strategy: dozens of imagination exercises that, when practiced, blow the larger elite movie called Reality away in the wind.

    Point taken, but I would suggest that the sheer volume of commercial media that the average american exposes themselves to nowadays is somewhat mind warping, antithetical to imagination, and thereby becomes programming. I turned the tv off six years ago, have been to very few commercial movies in that time, and have pretty much dialed out of popular mass media altogether — and it clears the mind for ‘bigger and better’ things.

    This article nicely complements, and, gets to a root, of what author Robert Guffey describes in the following three chapters of his book, “Cryptoscatology: Conspiracy Theory as Art Form”:

    * Chapt-4: You Name The Dwarfs: Surrealism, Advertising, and Mass Mind Control
    * Chapt-5: Science Fiction as Manipulation: SF’s Intersection with the Intelligence Community.
    * Chapt-6: Concentration Campus: Thought Control in American Education.

    Just to note, there is a line in Chapt-4 that leads one to another one of Jon’s articles…

    The line from Chapt-4:

    “Advertisers[,] [Intelligence Operatives,] [and the Mind-fragmentation Social Engineers (e.g., think about the inherent structure of the publik skool day)] ([the] corporate surrealists), like [Andre] Breton [the founder of surrealism] and his cohorts ([the individual and free-minded] guerilla surrealists), are facinated by the magical and utilitarian aspects of art.”

    Jon’s artcle on surrealism, the individual, and Andre Breton is here:

    Here is a podcast about the book “Cryptoscatology: Conspiracy Theory as Art Form”:

    (YouTube: Radio 3Fourteen – Robert Guffey – Cryptoscatology: Conspiracy Theory as Art Form; Published Apr 21, 2014)

    (Note: In the beginning of the podcast, Guffey mentions an essay he wrote titled “The War Against The Imagination”. That article can be found here:

    Here is the podcast:

    P.S. At 37m22s into the podcast (through to 56m55s), Robert talks about what has since become his new book titled Chameleo (a unique gang-stalking case).

    P.S.S. Jon’s review of Chameleo is here:

    Fascinating and quite correct. Redirecting ones understanding of all that is and all that is possible takes one to a place of pure pontential and creative practices, be it the organic food I eat, the mindfulness I observe, the love I promote in my home, work, anywhere.
    It’s a beautiful time to be alive.

      Soul is that which thinks……thought controls everything…….govern – control….ment-thought………govern-ment-al…….thought controls all (universe means all) thought governs the universe……..litterally

    Taking that sentiment to task, Jon, is my recent post fact or fiction?

    For those that can see, much sci-fi (i.e. Star Trek, Dr Who) is eerily close to the truth (in some cases “twisted” for popularity or protocol).
