Physics, the cosmos, and perception

Physics, the cosmos, and perception

by Jon Rappoport

May 20, 2016

Whenever physicists and spin-off commentators start talking about Quantum Theory, they always come back to the question about perception:

How much of what we perceive with our eyes, our minds, our instruments is really there, and how much depends on how we are looking at it, or the fact that we are looking at it?

This question fascinates people. It should. It’s a doorway into something far greater.

Perception itself is shaped by imagination.

Perception is one of an infinite number of possible roads along which imagination can move.

In case you hadn’t noticed, more and more scientific emphasis is being placed on genetics, DNA, the workings of the brain, as a way of explaining the “function” of the human being at every level.

However, most levels aren’t even touched by this exploration.

A person whose imagination is asleep wouldn’t know that.

If you want to use the world “evolution,” then say that the next stage of evolution involves the human being living by and through imagination.

When I make this point, I’m sometimes asked, “But what would we imagine?” That’s like an acting student telling his coach, “You want me to improvise this role? What should I spontaneously improvise?”

People are heavily invested in What Is. They are so heavily invested they don’t want to take their eye off that ball. They want to stay with What Is all the way into the grave. They have taught themselves to believe this is what they’re supposed to do. This is life. This is what it means. Which is like saying, “I’m blind to 99.9 percent of What Could Be, because I’ve sold out to What Is.”

If the universe could talk, it would say, “I’m playing a massive joke on you. I’m sitting here with all my titanic mass and energy and I’m convincing you that What Is is your best play. I’m giving you the very best reason to stay with What Is. But I’m just one work of art out of a possible infinite number of works of art. And here’s the kicker. You can create your own. You can create your own works of art.”

Some people are inspired by that idea, and some people don’t want to hear it.

For most people, let’s face it, the devotion to What Is is a religion. It sums up their lives and concerns and actions and thoughts.

Here is a note I made in preparation for my first collection, The Matrix Revealed:

“Mind control is focused on planting false realities. But that program would have no chance of succeeding unless people were already married to the notion that there is a single and final reality. That’s the underlying foundation of mind control. That’s the key. If you break through and understand that delusion, you enter a whole different territory. You go from thinking you’re in a museum that has only one painting to realizing the museum has a thousand paintings—and then you wake up even more, and you see that you could be a painter.”

What Is appears to be a far easier question than: what do you want to imagine? This comparison explains why civilizations decline.

Imagination is a path. Walking on that path long enough, you find answers to all the questions you’ve ever asked. You also find power that people dream of.

Exit From The Matrix is the realization of those clues, fleshed out, clarified, and embedded in techniques and exercises anyone can do on a daily basis.

Business goals 101

Business goals 101

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

This is a brief version of a much larger exploration of business operations and objectives.

With some clients in my consulting practice, I find this focus is paramount.

First of all, what is a particular business trying to do? What is its basic purpose? That answer can only be supplied by the person who heads up the company. He is the beginning and end of that vision.

And then, when the goal is clear, how is it going to be achieved?

This latter question often leads to mistakes, the most prominent of which is over-organization or badly designed organization.

Organization should be a function of the primary purpose, not a stand-alone structure that mimics other familiar patterns.

What do you need to do, in order to get where you want to go? And who needs to do it?

Think of organization as a collection of project teams. Each team has a leader, and each leader works to attain a “sub-goal.” If all the teams succeed, the major goal is achieved. That’s the plot, the story-line, the best prediction, the best estimate.

These teams are at the heart of a business operation.

Realizing that, the head of the business may see he has to radically reorganize his company. His present pattern is all wrong. It’s traditional, bulky, redundant, wasteful, annoying, thoughtless, and grossly distracting.

In fact, this can get so bad the organization becomes a maze. People are lost in it. Functions circle around and come back to their starting points.

At the extreme, you would see what I saw, many years ago, when I was called in to assess a small start-up. A dozen people were sitting at desks in a large room. They all had titles. They sat there and looked at paper. They basically pushed paper from one desk to another. Around and around it went. That’s all that was going on. Of course, no one would admit it—least of all the CEO. He was quite proud of having designed these titles and jobs to achieve his primary objective. And theoretically, he talked a good game. But really, the set-up was a total failure. There weren’t any project leaders or teams. No one was actually projecting the sale of anything. It was a giant bubble.

Many businesses are structured so their functions mesh with each other—but the primary goal is left out in the cold. Too much focus turns to the implementation of non-productive Pattern.

I have written before about the obsession for systems. You could liken it to the building of a house. The owner is fixated on installing all the proper functions, and in the end what he has is a bunch of adjacent spaces that really have nothing to do with the house he wanted in the first place. His primary vision is gone and buried.

I once worked with a CEO client who was drowning in his own company. He couldn’t see his way in or out. I told him we were going to have a series of conversations during which he would re-build, as it were, his business from scratch. From the ground up. From nothing. Starting with his primary goal and vision.


exit from the matrix


Eventually, in our dialogue, he reconstructed, in a new way, what his company would have to do, in order to reach the goal. What his company would look like, what projects it would undertake, who would undertake them—and all this was based on action, not mindless organization.

He was able to dump his obsession for systems. He was able to look at his future without peering through an arbitrary lens of over-organization. He was able to shake off years of empty stagnation.

Most profoundly, he was able to scrape away the accumulated veneer of shallow cynicism, in which he’d coated his own dreams.

And when he did that, his imagination came back to him. He could live with new energy.

He could feel the future he was, in fact, inventing.

Behind what I write: empowering the individual

Behind what I write: empowering the individual

by Jon Rappoport

May 16, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

I started reading short stories and novels when I was eleven. It never occurred to me that fiction was about groups. There was always a hero, and then of course there was the author, another individual.

The hero, the protagonist, was the spark. If he led a group, that was understandable, because he was behind it. He was the driving force.

How could it be any other way?

The culture has changed radically. But still, when people go to the movies, when they read novels, they’re looking for the individual. That’s what they want.

Whether I’m exposing some gigantic fraud or describing the power of imagination, I’m aiming at the individual who can understand he has greater power than he supposes.

The power to analyze, reason, deploy logic, and the power to create new realities.

This latter power doesn’t have anything to do with plugging into a collective idea. It doesn’t have anything to do with accepting a pre-digested cosmology.

I recently read a little piece of New Age pablum. It went something like this: “Your inner being loves you.”

What?

Now why would a person need to read or hear that? I’ll tell you why. Because spiritual collectivism is training people to believe they themselves are not enough, are not the main event, are not sufficient, are in need of some Other, in order to make their days on this Earth tolerable.

If a person has to walk around thinking some other part of himself loves him, or he loves himself, he’s operating in a realm of dither and blather.

Here is a person who has the formidable capacity to invent new realities…and he’s going to think about what part of himself loves him? He’s going to apply that salve to himself? He really needs that?

As a reply, I’ll quote from one of my past articles:

“There are some people who hear the word CREATE and wake up, as if a new flashing music has begun. This lone word makes them see something majestic and untamed and astonishing. They feel the sound of a Niagara approaching. CREATE is a word that should be oceanic. It should shake and blow apart the pillars of the smug boredom of the soul. CREATE is about what the individual does when he is on fire and doesn’t care about concealing it. It’s about what the individual invents when he has thrown off the false front that is slowly strangling him. CREATE is about the end of mindless postponement. It’s about what happens when you burn up the pretty and petty little obsessions. It’s about emerging from the empty suit and empty machine of society that goes around and around and sucks away the vital bloodstream.”

The true empowerment of the individual is about that.


exit from the matrix


If you want myth, it’s about the moment the fabled knight-hero crosses the threshold and leaves behind what he has been taught about reality and invents his own. It’s about entering a space where everything is open and nothing is finished. It’s about overthrowing a system of belief in which the individual is the recipient or target of “greater forces”—and instead he becomes that greater force himself.

He makes a new and better future.

He spreads the wings of his own imagination and soars above the old tired consensus on what is possible.

He rises to the opportunity of making his deepest desires into fact in the world.

If everyone has the potential to be a hero, it is because he has a thrilling vision and he enacts it to the ends of the Earth and beyond.

At some early point in his life, every person had a moment when he knew that.

It is his challenge to restore that knowing. Now.

Globalist peril vs. The Individual

Globalist peril vs. The Individual

by Jon Rappoport

May 4, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

First, the Globalist peril.

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” –David Rockefeller, Memoirs, 2003

The man who wrote those words represents a family that has dominated banking, oil, modern medicine, behind-the-scenes politics, and powerhouses of Globalism (e.g., the Council on Foreign Relations) for a century.

Globalism asserts that no nation can be independent from “the family” of other nations, as if it were a matter of fact beyond dispute. A nation claiming its sovereignty thus becomes a lunatic traitor to the natural order of things.

What really binds nations to one another is propaganda, and treaties which are based on the same propaganda, resulting in engorged super-profits for mega-corporations.

Globalism is a secular piece of messianic hype. A Disneyesque altruism is the prow of the ship. Spend 10 minutes educating any street hustler on Globalist principles, and he would recognize it as a standard long con.

Obama’s recent warning to the Brits, that their withdrawing from the Globalist European Union would put them at the back of the line in negotiating a separate trade treaty with the United States, was sheer fiction.

Britain, or any nation, that has goods to sell and a desire to buy will find trade partners. An agreement could be scratched out on a napkin over dinner.

Impending trade deals like the TPP and TTIP are thousands of pages and take so long to negotiate, because the heavy hitters at the table are looking for new ingenious ways to cut and paste the world into larger profits for themselves.

Globalism, hiding behind thousands of academic analyses, picks up jobs from one nation, where wages are reasonable and working conditions are tolerable, and dumps them in hell holes where wages are nearly invisible and conditions are poisonous. It’s that simple, and any moron could see how the job-exporting nations would suffer…if by nations we meant people.

Instead of criminal corporations and criminal investors.

But all this is layered over with “share and care” sop.

The United States government could repeal the NAFTA, CAFTA, and GATT trade treaties tomorrow, and throw current TPP and TTIP negotiating documents out the window…and all would be well. Better.

Much better.

For instance, without NAFTA, US producers wouldn’t have been able to flood Mexico with cheap corn, throwing 1.5 million Mexican corn farmers into bankruptcy, leading many of them to cross the border and come to the US to find work.

No US President since Nixon has disturbed the march of Globalist “free trade.” All Presidents since then have been on board with the Rockefeller plan. And the US economy—which is to say, jobs—has thus faltered. The 2008 financial crash was only one factor in the decline. The promise of cheap imports for sale in the US—the justification for free trade—doesn’t work when people here have no jobs and no purchasing power.

Major media, fronting for free-trade, have panicked over Donald Trump’s claim that he’ll reject Globalism. They would have panicked over Bernie Sander’s similar promise, if they thought he had any chance of defeating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination. The media have their orders from on high—the deck is stacked, the cards were dealt long ago.

Hillary Clinton’s pathetic promises about creating jobs reveal nothing of substance. Small tax breaks for small businesses that “share profits with employees,” the “removal of government red tape,” “funding breakthroughs in scientific and medical research,” “expanding job training opportunities”—the truth is, her basic method for stimulating the economy has always been: find a war, any war, and fight it.

—Now, let us consider The Individual. Is he just a tiny force pitted against a colossus?

No. Unless he sees himself that way.

But what can he do?

First: find the thing within himself that defies the odds, supersedes the “normal response,” casts aside all ordinary formulations of what he is.

That thing, that power is imagination.

Imagination has the ability to come up with solutions and strategies that have never been considered before. Imagination is the wild card.

Imagination belongs to The Individual.

—The individual is not the group.

“Exercises and techniques for accessing and deploying imagination…these would be essential. Exercises that allow the individual to reinstate his basic creative position in life. Exercises that allow the individual to use his imagination in many different ways. Ramping up power.” (Preliminary notes for Exit From the Matrix, Jon Rappoport)

What does the individual have to offer? He has everything he is capable of doing, when he liberates himself from petty ideas and limitations about what he is. That journey of liberation is his own. It isn’t anybody else’s.

It is, as I’ve pointed out many times, a journey of imagination.

Imagination lets a person know what could exist but doesn’t now exist. Imagination lets a person know what could be invented. Imagination lets a person know that, despite claims to the contrary, the future is open and unwritten.

Imagination lets a person know that he can think thoughts that have never been thought before.

The journey of individual liberation is, therefore, much more than discovering what already exists in one’s own mind.

The world as it is, things as they are, Globalism as it is, collectivism, the group—this is eventually the sensation of depleted imagination.

Of course, imagination never diminishes, it just waits. For you.

The deployment of imagination unlocks hidden energies. A power, sought after and never found in other endeavors, appears.

“Tiny imagination” is just part of this absurd culture. You don’t have to go along with it.

Imagination is larger than any universe. It needs no sanction from the world. It is not some secret form of physics. It is not religion. It is not cosmology. It is not any one picture of anything. It’s what you invent.

The Collective does not have imagination. It poaches on individuals with imagination.

The Collective is a graveyard where imagination has been downgraded and forgotten.

Imagination soars. It is the individual at the edge of his own exploration.

Imagination was the source for the building of modern civilization. But then civilization became dedicated to itself and the group.

The individual never goes away, and neither does his imagination.

Imagination can light up a room, a house, a city, a nation, a planet, a galaxy, a universe.


exit from the matrix


—So what will the individual do about Globalism?

The challenge isn’t going to be resolved by taking mere traditional approaches. It isn’t going to be solved by thinking along traditional lines.

People tend to ask for answers—but what if the ordinary answers don’t work? What if something else has to happen?

What if many individuals have to wake up to the range and scope and power of their own imaginations…and come up with new answers?

What if that’s the case?

What if that’s the exit from the situation in which we find ourselves?

It IS the exit.

What motivates people to take action?

What motivates people to take action?

by Jon Rappoport

April 23, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

First, what kind of motivation am I talking about?

I’m talking about the urge to pursue a goal to change things for the better. An urge that goes beyond the simple desire to belong to a group; that goes beyond the desire to reflect the pronouncements of authority; that goes beyond a need to bolster the status quo.

Eliminating those motivations, we are left with something that involves an individual taking a stand—and making his position public.

His position, his beliefs, his principles, his ideas.

The problem centers on his family, friends, colleagues, co-workers. To some degree, he feels enmeshed in a group, and that group would take a dim view of his ideas and actions. In the territory of his thoughts, he’s emerged from the shadows of conformity; but in the world? That’s a different story.

What would “they” think of him? What would they say? What would they do?

Is he willing to risk fracturing his relationships?

Is he willing to risk “being misunderstood?”

Most people stop at this point, reconsider, and fall back into line. They see The Group as the final arbiter of what they’re permitted to do.

But they’re missing something.

Some far more basic. Something that comes earlier.

As individuals, do they see that they have individual power?

Or not?

Do they understand they have the capacity to act independently in the world? And that these actions have strength?

Or not?

Because if they don’t see that, then where would they stand?

And next, do they realize they can form a vision of what they want to do—and do they sense this vision has power?

What I’m talking about here has nothing to do with making an assessment of the likelihood of success or victory versus the numbers of people who are asleep or who defend the status quo. That calculation is, at bottom, an excuse for doing nothing.

If sheer numbers were the deciding factor, all action would be rejected.

Boiling down the basis of motivation comes to this: does the individual realize he is an individual? Does he realize it in greater and greater degrees?

If not, he’ll root around in the forest and never form an independent vision.

A vast overemphasis on his “interdependence with others” will sentence him to grinding out his days.

The “individual who is first and foremost a part of the group” is a fiction. It becomes a convenient fiction for many. It rationalizes avoiding uncomfortable circumstances.

There is the old saw: with great power comes great responsibility. There is some truth in that, but in most cases people are urged to consider responsibility in a way that chokes off their power. The responsibility is directed toward group-duties.

The individual’s responsibility is toward himself. Then, assuming his own power, he can act. Then he can think about his connection to others—but even so, how much is there to think about, if he is forwarding a vision to make things better?

Critics will drag up examples of individuals who enacted destructive visions. But what do these criticisms add up to? The discovery that there are bad apples in the bunch? This is no revelation. Is the crazy dictator a justification for damning all individual action? Of course not.

Where does individual power come from? It comes from the creative urge, the creative impulse. This is deeper than the notion of solving problems. It’s deeper than mechanical resolutions.


exit from the matrix


If the major part of the last 10,000 years of human history has been dedicated to submerging the individual, then turning the formula right side up is not going to be a Sunday picnic. Understood. But the reversal has to start somewhere. It certainly isn’t going to start from the program of a group. That would be a root contradiction.

The longer a person waits for a spark of inspiration to jolt him into action, the less likely it is that he’ll cross the threshold into a new life.

Placing a “we” before an “I” may at first appear to be a strategy for exiting an old life, but it soon fades in the glaze of conformity that groups insist on.

Powerful groups can exist—when they are composed of powerful independent individuals, but the group does not give birth to the individual.

It never has.

Civilization ebbs and flows: you remain

Civilization ebbs and flows: you remain

by Jon Rappoport

April 16, 2016

When I was planning my three Matrix collections, I made this note:

“Civilizations ebb and flow, rise and fall, but the individual remains. He needs, under any and all circumstances, to keep two capacities intact: 1) reasoning, logic, analysis; and 2) imagination. These are the well springs. No matter what situation he finds himself in, he will need these. He should not only preserve these two faculties, but also expand and deepen them. Nothing that could be happening around him is an excuse to desert these cores.”

What is happening around us now, in these times, certainly provides major distractions and diversions. It’s easy to go off on tangents and engineer reasons why we can’t achieve goals and embody our dreams. But that doesn’t help us. It doesn’t serve our interests.

After 30 years of working as a reporter, author, and researcher, I’ve come to understand that an imagined vision of what a person truly wants is his North Star. Working at higher and higher levels to fulfill that vision and make it into fact in the world eventually produces unexpected rewards. And also spills over into benefits for others.

The phrase “truly wants” is a key. When you reach down to that level of desire and see it, you find both peace and energy.

You find leverage. Now circumstances tend to adjust to you, rather than you adjusting to them.

It is as if the status quo has been waiting for a change, a transformation, and it moves toward you for assistance.

At the root of ancient alchemy was the notion that nature, in all its manifestations, was engaged in conflict, and a “quintessence” was needed to work a higher resolution. That quintessence is born out of imagination, the envisioning of new possibilities.

However, if individuals are deploying imagination to achieve what are, in fact, their minor desires and lesser wants, then the status quo remains and is built wider and wider.

As an analogy, think of extending a string of negative numbers, while hoping that somehow they’ll add up to a positive number.

The status quo is surreal. I mean that quite literally. It is constructed to look quite normal. But of course, it isn’t. It’s full of lies and half-truths and obfuscations and planned deceptions—all laid on in a “normal” way.

The status quo is a circular affair. It is presented as “the way things are,” but underneath it is the assumption that millions and millions of people are needed to give their consent to it. Needed? Yes. Otherwise, it will collapse. Well, how can the status quo represent the way things are, if they aren’t that way unless huge numbers of people support it and uphold it?

That’s a monumental gimmick. “I’m here, of course I’m here, but I need you to believe I’m here.” Why? If you’re here, what difference does it make what I believe?

Withdrawing your support from the status quo is one thing, but building and inventing a new reality to take its place is quite another.


exit from the matrix


The individual can make a contribution, an astonishing contribution, when his ability to reason and deploy logic, and his ability to access his own imagination are present at the forefront of his life.

Education of the young could, if there were the will for it, develop the two cores. It could, at the earliest age possible, teach logic and analysis of information, and it could provide numerous exercises to expand imagination. These things are possible. There isn’t any trick to it.

Generations of children, growing up in this kind of atmosphere, would shift their focus. They would eagerly seek out ways to empower their own minds and imaginations. They would be far less likely to fall into holes of apathy and passivity. They wouldn’t need escapes and endless distractions.

But again, no matter what education looks like, no matter what new lows society’s institutions descend into, you remain. Free, and able to choose. Able to decide. Your mind and your imagination are yours.

As I’ve written before, we are the artists of reality, each one of us. This is a spiritual path. It isn’t just a short narrow road.

It’s the great adventure.

The depletion of human energy—reversing the trend

The depletion of human energy—reversing the trend

by Jon Rappoport

April 11, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Energy.

As in: energy depletion.

Without energy, the individual feels trapped. In that state, he seeks to conform, fit in, survive long enough to die of old age.

Body and mind deploy various feedback mechanisms to inform a person about his “available supply of energy,” and when these signals are taken as absolute truth, trouble comes.

“I can sense my energy is dwindling. So I have to…settle for less, or see a doctor, or give up, or accept that I’m getting older, or change my values, or tune up a victim-story, or join a group, or…”

On and on it goes.

In this twilight zone, the individual is unwilling to consider solutions that could restore his vitality. He’s already opted for a lower level of life.

In particular, he’s unwilling to explore the one aspect of his capability that works like magic: imagination.

That’s out. No dice. Preposterous. Absurd.

After all, imagination is just that spring rain he felt as a child, that unknown space that held all the promise in the world.

That was then; this is now.

Now is sober reflection. Now is routine. Now is habit. Now is empty.

Once upon a time, he read a science fiction novel and, at the end of it, he felt as if he were standing, triumphant, in deep space at the crossroad of a hundred solar systems.

Now he knows there is no such place. Now he is intelligent.

And now he has no energy.

The light that once flared is gone.

The idea that his own imagination could lead him to discoveries beyond anything he knows is fool’s gold.

Yes, once when he was twenty, he woke up in the middle of the night and walked to his window and looked out over a city and knew he was on the cusp of an endless future…but what can he do about that now? There is no returning.

So his imagination waits. It idles.

Yet…if he took a chance, if he began to dream again, if he started up the engine, if he considered offloading the interlocking systems that have become his daily life, what might happen?

What layers of dead thought might peel away?

What abiding convictions might dissolve?

What energies might be restored?

Is there a huge space beyond his common neurological impulses and rigid survival habits, where Vision can be played out on a vast scale?

Is there a different kind of life he can enter?

Can he take a route around the banners and facades of his former reality after opening the door to his imagination?


Exit From the Matrix


There is, in fact, a silent channel that winds through the entire time-scale of the human race.

History does not officially record it, because history is written by winners for losers, and this silent channel has nothing to do with pedestrian notions of victory or defeat.

The route of imagination has no truck with conventional space or time. It invents its own, and eventually introduces them into the world.

How many stories are there about journeying knights who cross the boundary from ordinary events into a realm of magic?

The stories are messages…sent to ourselves, to remember. This place, this day, this moment is a platform from which to embark.

Adventure, with no end.
