What is The Matrix

What is The Matrix

The Yin Yang Experiment

by Jon Rappoport

July 22, 2017

Let’s pretend that a few Chinese sages, long ago, decided to float a trial balloon.

They spread the word that opposites could resolve in a state of harmony. Each polarity could reflect the other.

It was a poetic thought that might be embedded in a few verses.

The sages watched and waited. Eventually, they saw that this fancy had taken hold. In fact, it had become embedded in a philosophy. It was now being discussed as a principle of the universe, the cosmos.

The sages were shocked but not surprised. Humans exhibit strange fetishes.

What started out as a poet’s passing rumination on a summer afternoon—entertained purely for the purpose of writing verse—was now an all-embracing weave of the Matrix.

From the sages’ point of view, what might be done in a poem was far more important than what might be attributed to Universe.

I use this as an illustration of “piling on”–how humans add one idea after another, one speculation after another to a Matrix that is already built to give the impression that it is the prime reality.

Richard Jenkins, the extraordinary healer I write about in The Secret Behind Secret Societies, once told me, “The addiction to Universe is like every other religious addiction. People aren’t satisfied with just two or three myths. They have to keep making them up. It’s like children with dolls and clothes. You’ve got to have more outfits.”

The Matrix is made into a magnet. Instead of understanding that products of imagination are art, people have to embellish the Matrix with those products. That gets them dug in deeper.

Nearly 45 years ago, I rented a garage in Santa Monica and turned it into a studio. It was small, and I wanted to paint large. I stretched three canvases, the biggest of which was 15×8 feet. Because there wasn’t enough room in the studio, I kept painting over that canvas.

Six months later, I had done perhaps 15 paintings on that one canvas—each painting covering the one before it. I’d used all sorts of paints—acrylic, oil, enamel. Finally, I painted the whole thing black. I looked at the black space for a few days, and I noticed there was a small glint of light green peeking through in the lower left.

I worked at the area with my fingernails, and suddenly a two-foot section of black came away like a swath of rubber, exposing many colors and shapes, which were intact.

I realized that, because I’d used different kinds of paint, I’d done distinct layers. The layers hadn’t adhered perfectly.

For the next week, using a screwdriver and a mallet, I uncovered painting after painting, going back in time.

Eventually, I arrived at a painting composed of several layers at slightly different heights. I liked it.

If the painting had been the Matrix, and I had been a devotee, I would have fallen on my knees at that point and said a prayer. I would have, for the moment, been happy I had determined how many layers (myths) were necessary to give me the One Painting For All Time. The religion of Matrix.

But it was a painting. And of course, since I was the artist, I knew that.

Artists create worlds and universes. Therefore, the idea that “The Universe” is somehow our greatest guide and mentor and gift-giver is a joke of the highest magnitude.

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.

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.

What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road, with new power.

    I’m getting it. Quit looking for an ultimate superior concept to perhaps save me, align with, join up in, because there probably isn’t really an ultimate need for that. Endless creation from my own imagination as an immortal being of some kind (maybe a creative one). Glad you came along to expose the buried obvious. hahaha

    I had a thought thru all this. Being an individual and thinking for one’s self, always a challenge since humans have a natural tendency to want others to behave as they think those others should. Worse, what if you dare have the gall to suggest they are doing something wrong or that they might benefit from finding fault with themselves. Many philosophers and prophets ran into a heap of trouble ding this, this is if you fine execution, prison or exile to be trouble.

    Unity and agreement are good things. They are necessary things. Mixing vastly different cultures, with at least one if not several of those being on the intolerant side and historically known for eventually trying to take over and “force conversion” to what ever, religion, Marxism (which is a religion) or State-ism (also a religion).

    There is that delicate balance which rarely lasts long, which comes about as a truce between all things, like ideas, actions, harmony, a common purpose, a way of doing business, etc. but its usually over before it hardly got started. Look at it this way. Ships were great for cross oceanic commerce. But then wagons took over on land, along with horses. And some canals, too, but they were on the modest side but worked. It lasted for quite a while, and then someone said in the USA, lets build the Erie canal. This was a more long tern solution since canal boats did not need to unload and reload or change to wagon as often. The Erie Canal and NY Harbor made NYC the wealthy Giant it is today. But that canal did well for 20 years and then began a decline due to obsolescence. Trains were invented and track could to anywhere and go far longer than Erie canal could ever dream of.

    So railroads become masters of our society . . . until cars, trucks and roads really gained steam. Railroads due far less in shipping now. Trucks save some transfers of cargo and go right to the ultimate destination without reloading.

    Times change, people change. But should they change? and How much? Can the breach be healed, stopped, slowed down, or are we headed for disaster? Is the genie out of the bottle? Can he be forced back in? I do not believe the success or survival of humans is guaranteed (except by the hand of God, but that’s just my belief). Were it not for God, and assuming it is not, I’d say we are in big trouble. I knew and had a teacher who no matter what the problem, he was sure it would all work out, This was in the 70 and early 80s.

    But our days of unity and agreement are over. that can’t be a good thing. Like the merchant wagons of old, we are obsolete and fractured and broken. Some SOB or many SOBs came along and dumbed us down so damn far that there is no recovery at this point. It was just a night or two ago, or maybe even a Jon post here, but education was talked about.

    We have become, collectively, dumb as sh!t. Most operate only on instinct. The desire for the immediate pleasure or satisfaction or false sense of comfort. We are easily herded. Easily lied to. And do we stand up to lies, collectively? Certainly not! Now one wants to take the beast on. Even the slightest sign of discomfort sends them into a panic and a safe place, as if there was such a thing. A safe place is actually the most dangerous place.

    If only there were intelligent aliens who could just remove the very few intelligent ones and place them on another planet like earth. but for how long would that last? 6000 years, maybe. from our earliest traces we have that much, anyway.

    Unity vs diversity! That’s it in a nutshell. As I see it, unity need to be preserved if it is to survive, and we let it go. Our minds were not prepared when the political liars of Marxism came along. Now they destroy us with “diversity” a.k.a adversity, disunity, and conflict. Have a nice day! 😛

      Truth1, Ships, trains & trucks are now almost seamlessly interconnected by the shipping containers used to transport goods. Note, the number of said containers decrease as you travel along the previous sentence along with the actual indidual container. What has significantly been decreased is the amount of men involved in physical labour, the number of people dealing with bills of lading etc.
      We can see already, the introduction of self driving vehicles, formany years planes have been this way pilots there in case of emergency and now Rolls Royce are in the market to manufacture a container ship that is unmanned? Presently I cannot see how it can be done, there are too many things that can go wrong i.e. one of the sea watercooling filters could be bloccked either by say jellyfish or plastic bags. You can swap over to standby filters, then it gets blocked? Yup with people there you can take off lid, clean filter & repeatedly do so, if required. There could be a pipe fail, or 1001 other scenarios and thats just the Engine Room? On bridge, yes navigation could be done remotely, even a lookout kept via AI enhanced cameras, but what about some kind of emergency? Shipwreck nearby, fire onboard etc? All the automation etc, done to save on crewing costs? Yes thars progress?

    “The larger the group, the more toxic, the more of your beauty as an individual you have to surrender for the sake of group thought. And when you suspend your individual beauty you also give up a lot of your humanity. You will do things in the name of a group that you would never do on your own. Injuring, hurting, killing, drinking are all part of it, because you’ve lost your identity, because you now owe your allegiance to this thing that’s bigger than you are and that controls you.” – George Carlin, Last Words
