Earth Culture and the era of imagination

“There is the craziness you can see from ground level, while you’re in the muck and investigating it. And then there is the craziness you see as you float up above the muck. From a height, you obtain a different view of the insanity. You see culture. You see what culture really looks like, when it’s heading down a trail of failure without consciousness.” (Preparatory Notes for Exit From The Matrix, Jon Rappoport)

There is an Earth Culture, and, yes, it is heavily influenced by controllers who make all sorts of war on the population, but it is also an organically deteriorating mass of small-minded concepts that presuppose we are living in small spaces.

As a reporter, I’ve spent 30 years drilling into a number of these concepts, in order to expose them as shams and scams. Deep medical fraud has been one of my targets.

Good science and good technology have taken us to good places, but increasingly science is occupied with promoting lies and fake realities, in order to achieve political objectives; and technologies are being deployed by people to render themselves incapable of distinguishing between closed systems and free open life.

Consider the issue of vaccines. Getting down into the morass of information on this subject, several things become apparent (and I have covered them in detail): vaccines contain highly toxic elements; studies claiming safety are mainly based on short-range observation; in the US, the apparatus for reporting serious adverse effects is broken and inoperable; the most reasonable estimate of vaccine damage yields up alarming figures; claims for marvelous success are based on the erroneous notion that the absence of familiar disease symptoms means the disease has been prevented—when, in fact, this absence can very well indicate a suppression of the immune system, whereby that system can no longer mount a strong inflammatory response. Additionally, the sharp decline of so-called infectious diseases in the West was the (non-medical) result of improved standards of living, and the most important improvement was in the area of nutrition.

Having established and seen all this from ground level, so to speak, one can rise far above the whole fray, look down, and view vaccination from another perspective—as in, what are these lunatics doing to each other?

There they are, giving and receiving injections of toxic poisons, and thinking they are promoting health and well-being. This is a social and cultural phenomenon, when watched from a significant height. This is worried and fearful and greedy people running around and adhering to a social model of behavior. The model is madness. The model is enforced. The model is entered into willingly as well.

The model is part of Earth Culture. An observer with no ties to the system would say, “Well, that’s one of the oddest things I’ve ever seen. Are they trying to destroy each other and themselves? Are they under some sort of spell? Are they hypnotized? Is this just one more aspect of their profit motive? Is this a way citizens can proudly proclaim they’re doing good? Is that the need this mad system fulfills?

I’m using vaccination as just one example of what one can see of Earth Culture from different levels and distances.

Now consider a less visible aspect of culture. One could argue it isn’t culture at all. It’s a tradition that, here and there, has existed since the dawn of time. In my book, The Secret behind Secret Societies, I call it the Tradition of Imagination. It has mainly been forwarded by artists and inventors.

You don’t see it as a collective enterprise, because it isn’t. It involves the individual. It always has and it always will.

Through great struggles for liberation, by the end of the 19th century, increasing numbers of people were becoming conscious of the primacy of imagination. Many hidebound beliefs and convictions of the Culture were finally seen as a species of art. They weren’t intrinsically true; they were invented.

And since this was so, what else could imagination produce? What far better effects? How far could it go? How much of what we take to be reality could be changed, dispensed with, outdistanced by individuals deploying their imaginations to invent new realities and futures in the world?

This was the breathtaking brink. This was the new edge. This was the birth of a new era.

It was not a great surprise that a counter-revolution would occur—an attempt to drive back progress and put the genie back in the bottle.

But the Tradition of Imagination is not based on the machinery of collective Earth Culture.

We are in the era of imagination, no matter how many “realists” deny it.

Many, many people now understand that the precious beliefs that underpin Earth Culture are actually very low-level inventions of imagination; they’re not reflections of “the way things are.”

This doesn’t mean victory has been achieved. Far from it. There will always be a collective program dedicated to brainwashing the populace to accept a lowest-common-denominator reality.

But a breakthrough has been made. What happens now is up to the individual. Does he want to discover what his imagination can do? Does he want to live through and by his creative force? Does he want to expand that power?

From a great enough height, one can see that the totality of Earth Culture operates in order to convince the individual that he is unimportant, he is insignificant, and the waves of mass events taking place are the only events worth considering.

The totality of Earth Culture amounts to a surrender of individuality. And that is a trick. That is a very clever piece of stage magic.

It is necessary to understand this.

This is the true import of Earth Culture. And, without intending to, it highlights the potential response:


The free individual rejects that Culture. He sees it for what is, and he looks to his own inner resources.

He discovers how great they are.

“Our first endeavors are purely instinctive prompting of an imagination vivid and undisciplined. As we grow older reason asserts itself and we become more and more systematic and designing. But those early impulses, though not immediately productive, are of the greatest moment and may shape our very destinies. Indeed, I feel now that had I understood and cultivated instead of suppressing them, I would have added substantial value to my bequest to the world. But not until I had attained manhood did I realize that I was an inventor.” (Nikola Tesla, 1919)

“All human accomplishment has the same origin, identically. Imagination is a force of nature. Is this not enough to make a person full of ecstasy? Imagination, imagination, imagination. It converts to actual. It sustains, it alters, it redeems!” (Saul Bellow, Henderson the Rain King, 1959)

“This world is but canvas to our imaginations.” (Henry David Thoreau, 1849)

exit from the matrix

When you come down to it, why does any individual allow the fumes of his past to influence what he thinks or does now? Why does he stall at the gate of his dreams? Why does he limp into the chains others are willing to supply him? Why does he believe it’s fashionable and interesting to belittle his own independence and separateness? Unity is not a virtue per se, and separateness is not a crime. Civilization is in the business of inverting, turning things upside down, and reversing the good and the bad. Society is organized trickery, promoting the illusion that the man or woman standing on top of the mountain is a violator. Those who eagerly enlist in society are committing to meddling, as a way of avoiding what they once wished they could see. They want to forget what that was. They want to forget their greatest notions.

So be it.

But nothing in the nature of things says you must join them.

There is no one who can tell you what great vision you should bring to the surface today or tomorrow. And when you stop and think about that, you might realize it is a happy circumstance, an ecstatic circumstance.

    A call to action! Turn off the media stream each day and get in touch with your imagination. Paint – write – make music – invent – whatever – remember your best days as a child, and emulate that. Follow the creative impulse and don’t let your “grown-up” self criticize! Do it today.

  2. Ines Radman says:

    So very true Mr. Rappoport – I have been reading your work for a few years now and never can find the correct words to commend you. Thank you for all that you do and wish you a better and more explosive 2016!

    Yesterday, there was such a powerful interview with Dr. Steve Pieczenik. He was talking about “individuals, thinking outside the box and creativity.

    He said:

    “Remember, what we need is an individual, our country wasn’t built on collective”.

    “Somehow, somebody upstairs is not willing to stop that insanity, that’s where Trump comes in, in terms of personality. He is smart, thinks outside the box and has a lot of creativity”

    “Usually, one or two individuals come along and change the narrative”.
    “We need someone who can clean it out, a man that can do it. I see no one else who could do it, but Trump”.

    But amazingly, it is on this site right here, where you, Jon, keeps talking about individuals, that the commentators do not seem to believe in individuals. They do not believe that ONE man can bring this country on the right track. No, they cannot believe that it is possible, because, most of them, still look at this political situation as a collective that cannot be defeated. And most of them will not even vote on the presidential election. So sad!

    Piecezenick thinks that this election is crucial for the sake of America. Probably the last chance to get it right. I agree with him.

      “We need someone who can clean it out, a man that can do it. I see no one else who could do it, but Trump”.

      “Somehow, somebody upstairs is not willing to stop that insanity, that’s where Trump comes in, in terms of personality. He is smart, thinks outside the box and has a lot of creativity”

      Stop for a minute and think objectly, from your own point of view.
      Think from your epicenter, just above your navel.
      And ask yourself this…”Why is every single comment I make in reference to, or about Donald Trump. Am I caught in some parellel Trump universe. Where everything is Trumpified, Trumpcated, or Trumpilicious. We have Trump: the art of the deal, Trump cola, Trump water… Trump shirts and trump ties, we have Trump fragrance and that was trumped twice, and Trump ice cream with Donalds’s favorite flavour ‘Trumpy Munkey’. We even have Trump TV network, and Trump radio and Trump golf clubs, Trump university were everybody gets an honorary degree, and Trump dishes and Trump beer…do we really, really, really, really need President Trump”

      And the next President of the United States of America isss, El Presidenti Donald Trumpo…aaaarghhahhh (*Bang* revolver shot).

      Mexican television announcer: So, El Presidenti Trumpo. Watchoo think of 100 million peples commiteed suicide when you became El Presidenti…of America….hmm

      El Trumpo (Trump): I will… I…a wall around everybody. Little itsy bitsy walls around all American citzens so nothing can hurt them not even themselves. No Muslims, no terrorists, no internet, nothing will hurt them behind their little walls. This has never been done before, this amazing, this-is-my-greatest-idea. Walls, little portable walls….nine feet high. And I’ll get Mexico to pay for it.

      A little poem for you…viola’

      Hillary and Bill have Mena
      The ‘El Donald’ has Menie
      Enie, Menie, Mena moe… catch the donald by his toe.
      If he hollers, there will hell topee.
      Enie, Menie, Mena moe.

      • @MB

        That has got to be one of the best comments anyone has ever issued on JR.

        Regardless of the “subject matter”, if there was a “like” button, I’d have pressed it this time,

        Happy Old Year all & remember the perennial motto is LEARN SOMETHING!

        @ Michael

        You should start listening to the Alex Jones Show and his great crew, and patriotic guests, you might learn something.

        The MSM hates him, the left hates him, the Republicans hates him.
        Obama said he will try to get Trump out of the campaing because he says he is not fit to be President. Great Britain wants to ban him in their country. Google censure him, etc.

        That should tell you something.

        Now, here are the great peoples who llike him, support him and are helping and briefing him.

        – Robert Steele
        – Steve Pieczenik
        – Michael Savage
        – Matt Drudge
        – Paul Craig Roberts
        – Seymour Hersh
        – Roger Stone
        – Ted Nugent
        – Judge Andrew Napolitano
        – Sherif Richard Mack
        – Steve Quayle
        – Richard Belzer
        – James David Manning
        – Lt. Colonel Allen West
        – Even Vlademir Putin is for him
        – Etc.

        I could go on and on. The veterans are for him, so are the top military colonels who knows the truth and all the whisle blowers..

        Maybe you think that your opinion is better thant these people. If so, you really have an ego the size of the Universe.

        Here is one suggestion for you for the new year:
        Stop listening to the stupid leftist media.

  5. There is a Vedic-Aryan proverb which is similar to the “Sower Parable”.

    It says (words to the effect): “nothing can grow on infertile soil”.

    I think that is the punch line of your post, which is a great one, Jon. Yes, there is much to learn from that “high Victorian” apex of “good and evil” in the 1880’s/90’s.

    I will post my New Year’s follow up to on Exopolitician soon. Even with our different styles/words, we are constantly heading down the same conclusive path, Jon.

    But, then again, is truth, reason and logic “negotiable”?

    happy new year, everyone.

    and Jon, don’t ever thinking leaving this place man. You are greatly appreciated on this green-blue (well, kinda grey now) planet. I’ll try to join you in that 200 years of coffee break.
