Power beyond mind control: Exit From The Matrix

Power beyond mind control: Exit From The Matrix

by Jon Rappoport

November 18, 2017

Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.

In any arena of life, and especially when it comes to the mind, perception, power, empathy, and so on, there is always a status quo. It’s merely the place where a person says, “Well, that’s enough. I’ll settle for what I have. I’ll stop here.”

Sooner or later, this leads to boredom, frustration, problems, and conflict. It leads to a decline.

Imagination, which knows no bounds, is the source for the most adventurous explorations. It can have great impact on the material world, of course, but one mustn’t therefore conclude it is composed of matter or energy. Imagination is non-material. To think otherwise winds you up in using some version of physics to depict imagination—and then you are imposing limits on it. This is an error. Imagination doesn’t obey any laws of physics.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve flattered reality enough. It doesn’t need any more. Imagination creates new realities.

You can create the same thing over and over, and eventually you’ll be about as alive as a table. Inject imagination into the mix, and everything suddenly changes. You can steer that boat anywhere you want to.

The lowest common denominator of consensus signals an absence of imagination: everyone agrees; everyone is bored; everyone is obedient. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are massive floods of unique individual creation, and then that sought-after thing called abundance is as natural as the sun rising in the morning.

Sitting around in a cosmic bus station waiting for reality is what reality is. Everything else is imagination.

There are those who believe life is a museum. You walk through the rooms, find one painting, stroll into it and take up permanent residence. But the museum is endless. And if you were a painter, you’d never decide to live inside one of your canvases forever. You’d keep on painting.

The relentless and obsessive search for all those things on which we can agree is a confession of bankruptcy.

When we re-learn to live through and by imagination, we enter and invent new space and time.

With imagination, one can solve a problem. More importantly, one can skip ahead of the problem and render it null and void.

Imagination isn’t a system. It might invent systems, but it is non-material. It’s a capacity. It feels no compulsion to imitate reality. It makes realities. Its scope is limited only by a person’s imagining of how far imagination can go.

The human race is obsessed by the question: what exists? It appears to be a far easier question than: what do you want to create? 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, as an incidental side effect of the journey. You also find power that most people only dream of.

My second collection, Exit From The Matrix, contains dozens of imagination exercises I’ve developed over the past 20 years. Their purpose is to expand the core of your potential.

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.

Your power in a decaying world

Your power in a decaying world

by Jon Rappoport

November 12, 2017

These are notes I made prior to preparing my three Matrix collections:

“Solutions to private problems and public problems require the ability to think things through, logically, and to reject what is unworkable or biased—but above and beyond that, a person needs to be able to imagine solutions that haven’t been tried before.”

“Propaganda says: defect from your own power. Never find out what it is. Assume it isn’t there. Propaganda says: all life is about the species, not about the individual.”

“When propagandists find a good thing, a message that works, they pound on it, they keep hammering away. Family, group, family, group, community. On and on. They never promote the message called The Individual with the same intensity. That would be counter-productive to what they are trying to accomplish: group identity; and amnesia about being an individual.”

“Civilization continues to erode and decay, as individual power is put on the back burner. But that doesn’t give the individual a license to surrender. If others want to give up, that’s their business. The individual, instead, finds new frontiers for his power, for his capacity to invent reality.”

“There is you, there is your own power. And what is that power? It comes in two forms or venues. First, there is the ability to apply logic to events and information; to think rationally from A to B to C; to analyze. And second, there is imagination, the capacity to conceive and then invent realities that would never otherwise exist in the world.”

“Individual power doesn’t need to make rigid distinctions between what is done for self vs. what is done for others. Social engineers and propagandists make those separations. You exercise your creative power to fulfill what you deeply desire; and that process will, in fact, spill over and affect others in a positive way. It will lift them up. It will remind them that they, too, have power.”

“Logic and analysis keeps you from being sent down wrong roads, keeps you from buying official reality. Logic also reminds you that you have a mind. Logic is a road that can take you deeper and deeper into more basic fallacies that underpin organized society and its branches of knowledge. Logic tells you there are always more fundamental questions to ask and answer. There are levels of lies. The deeper you go, the more confident you become. The more powerful. Logic also lets you know when you’re projecting basic pre-judgments over a whole landscape and neglecting to look at the details.”

“Passivity is a disease. It spreads and takes over. It makes strong people weak, and weak people demented. The passive life is precisely and exactly a life without power. The cure is a life lived with power.”

“In case there is any misunderstanding, the ability to help others and defend them from oppression is part and parcel of your own power. How could you help them without your power? How could you accomplish anything at all in that direction? How would denying your own power possibly result in a good outcome? And most importantly, it is through imagination that you can devise new ways to expose and reduce oppression, ways that haven’t been thought of before.”

“As society continues to decay, more and people attack individual power and place their faith in a program that reduces every human to a lowest common denominator of dependence on some controlling entity. This article of faith is abject surrender.”

“Some people want to say that power is a neutral object that can be used for good or evil. That isn’t true. Your deepest power is alive. It’s personal. It’s stunningly energetic and dynamic. It connects with your deepest understanding of what is true and good and right. But it never sacrifices itself on the altar of what others insist is good and true and right. It never deserts you for an abstract ideology someone else has devised. That ideology was formulated, in fact, to separate you from your power.”

“It takes great energy for a person to bury his own strength. Why not use that energy to multiply your power?”

Exit From The Matrix: the vital imagination-anchor effect

Exit From The Matrix: the vital imagination-anchor effect: the key to power

by Jon Rappoport

November 11, 2017

As my readers know, I write many articles about the power of imagination. And my collection, Exit From The Matrix, contains a number of unique imagination exercises which a person can practice every day, and thus accrue major benefits.

I want to stress this fact: a person, empowered by his own imagination, needs to use the power to form and carry out a major enterprise in the world.

After all, we’re living in this world. We’re here for action.

IMAGINATION CAN BE ANCHORED TO ACTION.

Imagination participates in creating a personal vision of what you truly want to do in life. And it also participates in the strategy for achieving that vision and making it into accomplished fact.

Action without imagination falls flat. Imagination without action results in spinning your wheels in the same basic place.

Imagination plus action is the dynamic embrace.

It enables a person to step out on the bright road to his future.

It puts everything else in a new perspective.

I cover all this in great depth, in Exit From The Matrix.

Exit From The Matrix: mapping consciousness

Exit From The Matrix: mapping consciousness

by Jon Rappoport

October 28, 2017

You can buy the latest maps of consciousness on any intellectual street corner. Try this one. Here’s another one.

They all have one factor in common: you fit yourself into the map.

This is an artifact. The “fitting in” is a trance induction. The whole idea is based on accepting someone else’s symbols, to which you attach yourself.

“Someone else’s map” has been the key piece in the salesman’s bag. Those who fall for it—and billions of people have—are entering into a mind-controlled state.

Why is this sales job so successful? Because people have walled themselves off from their own power.

What power am I talking about? Creative force.

The capacity to initiate and invent new realities. New futures.

Those who don’t want to do that, who can’t imagine how they could do that, are prisoners of inertia—those people will instead RE-SHAPE THEIR OWN MINDS IN THE IMAGE OF DRASTICALLY LIMITED CAPACITY.

In other words, they will bring about a self-fulfilling prophecy.

To counter this trend, I authored my collection, Exit From The Matrix. It contains many, many imagination exercises, which when practiced, can renew the creative impulse of the individual.

Collective consciousness: con job for the ages

Collective consciousness: the con job for the ages

by Jon Rappoport

October 25, 2017

“In the middle of all the brain-research going on, from one end of the planet to the other, there is the assumption that the individual doesn’t really exist. He’s a fiction. There is only the motion of particles in the brain. Therefore, nothing is inviolate, nothing is protected. Make the brain do A, make it do B; it doesn’t matter. What matters is harmonizing these tiny particles, in order to build a collective consensus, in order to force a science of behavior.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Individual power. Your power.

It stands as the essence of what the founding documents of the American Republic are all about, once you scratch below the surface a millimeter or so.

Therefore, it stands to reason that colleges and universities would be teaching courses in INDIVIDUAL POWER.

As soon as I write that, though, we all fall down laughing, because we understand the absurdity of such a proposition. Can you imagine Harvard endowing a chair in Individual Power?

Students would tear down the building in which such courses were taught. They’ve been carefully instructed that the individual is the greatest living threat to the planet.

If you can’t see that as mind control, visit your local optometrist and get a prescription for glasses.

So we have this astonishing situation: the very basis of freedom has no reflection in the educational system.

You can say “individual” within certain limited contexts. You can say “power,” if you’re talking about nuclear plants, or if you’re accusing someone of a crime, but if you put “individual” and “power” together and attribute a positive quality to the combination, you’re way, way outside the consensus. You’re crazy. You’re committing some kind of treason.

In order to spot the deepest versions of educational brainwashing, YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME STANDARD AGAINST WHICH YOU CAN COMPARE WHAT IS COMING DOWN THE PIPELINE INTO THE MINDS OF STUDENTS.

If you lack that standard, you miss most of the action.

If you lack that standard, you have already been worked over by the system.

And in this case, the standard is INDIVIDUAL POWER.

Clean it off, hose off the dirt, polish it, look at it, think about it, remember it.

Then you’ll see some Grade-A prime mind control. Everywhere. Because schools either don’t mention it, or they discredit it.

Back in the days when I was writing on assignment for newspapers and magazines, I pitched a story about individual power to an editor. I wanted to trace its history as an idea over the past ten years.

He looked at me for a few seconds. He looked at me as if I’d just dropped some cow flop on his desk. He knew I wasn’t kidding and I had something I could write and turn in to him, but that made it worse. He began to squirm in his chair.

He laughed nervously.

Then he stopped laughing.

He said, “This isn’t what we do.”

For him, I was suddenly radioactive.

I had a similar experience with a high-school history teacher in California. We were having lunch in a cafe in Santa Monica, and I said, “You should teach a course in individual power. The positive aspects. No group stuff. Just the individual.”

He frowned a deep intellectual frown, as if I’d just opened my jacket and exposed a few sticks of dynamite strapped to my chest. As if he was thinking about which agency of the government to report me to.

Now, for the schizoid part. The movies. Television. Video games. Comics. Graphic novels. They are filled to the brim, they are overflowing with individual heroes who have considerable power. These entertainment businesses bank billions of dollars, because people want to immerse themselves in that universe where the individual is supreme. They want it badly.

But when it comes to “real” life, power stops at the front door and no one answers the bell.

Suddenly, the hero, the person with power, is anathema. He’s left holding the bag. So he adjusts. He waits. He wonders. He settles for less, far less. He stifles his hopes. He shrinks. He forgets. He develops “problems” and tries to solve them within an impossibly narrow context. He redefines success and victory down to meet limited expectations. He strives for the normal and the average. For his efforts, he receives tidbits, like a dog looking up at his master.

If that isn’t mind control, nothing is.

Once we enter a world where the individual no longer has credibility, a world where “greatest good for the greatest number” is the overriding principle, and where that principle is defined by the elite few, the term “mind control” will have a positive connotation. It will be accepted as the obvious strategy for achieving “peace in our time.”

At a job interview, a candidate will say, “Yes, I received my PhD in Mind Control at Yale, and then I did three years of post-doc work in Cooperative Learning Studies at MIT. My PhD thesis? It was titled, ‘Coordination Strategies in the Classroom for Eliminating the Concept of the Individual.’”

From Wikipedia, “Cooperative Learning”: “Students must work in groups to complete tasks collectively toward academic goals. Unlike individual learning, which can be competitive in nature, students learning cooperatively can capitalize on one another’s resources and skills…Furthermore, the teacher’s role changes from giving information to facilitating students’ learning. Everyone succeeds when the group succeeds.”

That is a towering assemblage of bullshit.

“Everyone succeeds when the group succeeds.” You could use that quote on the back cover of Orwell’s 1984 or Huxley’s Brave New World. Everyone does not succeed—because the individual never finds out what he can do on his own. That avenue is cut off. He only knows what he can achieve in combination with others. He only knows what he can understand when he borrows from others.

He only knows the group and the team and the participation and the praise. He only knows the organizing of his life within a synthetically produced context.

He is taught that this is good and necessary.

So, one day, if a bolt comes out of the blue and he recognizes he is himself, what will he use to grasp that revelation and build on it?

I see no end of writing about this, because civilization has been turned upside down by treacherous people who have been fabricating a tradition that will sink the ship.

This is why I write for the individual.

The free, independent, powerful, creative individual—more than a symbol, more than an ideal.

A reality.

“A leap of magic beyond the continuum”

“A leap of magic beyond the continuum”

by Jon Rappoport

October 23, 2017

These are notes I made while preparing my collection, Exit From The Matrix, which contains over 50 exercises designed to expand imagination and creative power.

People assume their entire field of operation is “the continuum in which they live.”

“Here is all the space and time there is, and I’m inside it.”

Really?

The continuum is a kind of fantasy. A myth.

Subconsciously, people assume the continuum is WHATEVER THEY USE TO DEFINE THEIR FIELD OF OPERATIONS.

For example, suppose a person has an overriding problem he is constantly wrestling with. Every day, every week, he nudges and massages and moves that problem around. He pats it and kicks it and tries to push it and he seeks to move it out of the way. He denies it and accepts it and contemplates it and forgets it and remembers it and feels it…

Well, that problem is defining his field of operation…and subconsciously he thinks of it as the continuum.

To get outside that conception, the person needs to experience a new kind of action. A new kind of exercise.

Here is another analogy. A runner runs around a track, day after day. He runs that quarter-mile and he does wind-sprints on it and slower intervals. He operates there on that track, that oval. And ultimately, he is trying to shorten the amount of time it takes to go around the track.

Eventually, he reaches a limit where he thinks he’s hemmed in. He can’t go any faster.

He needs to alter his relationship to the continuum, to that idea of the “best time” he can muster.

In a way, life is like that. People do their best to get ahead—whatever that means to them. They do it from the point of view that they are in a space operating according to certain rules and restrictions.

They need two things. One, a new point of view. And two, exercises they do FROM that point of view.

The painter, Odilon Redon, once wrote, “Artists who approach perfection do not have many ideas.”

Translating that statement into my terms, it means: if you are operating within the continuum of your central myth, you will eventually reach a point where you are doing the best you can. But it’s not nearly enough…

Physics itself will reach this place of blockage, as long as it keeps looking at the same space-time continuum in the same old way. Atoms, electrons, quarks, waves, quantum entanglement, relativity—

How we conceive of our own energy is a major piece of the puzzle. We tend to fall into habits, some of them barely noticeable. For instance, we view our energy as circulating within us or around us or coming in toward us.

What would happen if we shifted these notions of energy—and we had exercises to back up this shift and make it real and powerful?

What if we decided we could create energy? What if that idea became palpable and real?

What if we decided the space of the continuum was just “one version” of space, and we could imagine and invent our own space and then produce new realities of our own choosing?

Well, artists, since the beginning of history, have been doing all these things. They’ve “jumped ship.” They’ve formed new assumptions about the continuum.

They haven’t set limits. They’ve gone beyond the notion that they’re living inside “the only continuum.” They’ve gone beyond the idea that they can only inch their way forward inside the only continuum.

Conceiving a vision of your own future—where is that happening? In what space? It’s happening in YOUR SPACE. And then, as you work to make that vision into fact in the world…you are COMING INTO THE CONTINUUM FROM OUTSIDE IT.

You’re not inching forward as a creature trapped inside the continuum.

Someone who invents a new business—where is he doing that? In his own space. That’s where the vision and the plan are happening.

In that realm, he or she, THE INDIVIDUAL, is the force. The person’s conception of Self is expanding.

The small version is fading and going away. The large version is appearing and taking center stage.

In ancient Tibet, before the theocracy entered the scene with all its baggage and ritual, there were schools and practitioners who realized all this and more.

They were extraordinarily sane. I would say they were the sanest people on the planet. They practiced exercises designed to establish their pre-eminent imagination and creative power. As individuals.

In 1961, I worked with a brilliant healer, Richard Jenkins, in New York. He talked to me about the Tibetans. One day, he said to me: You know how people say the artist creates his own world on the canvas? That old statement? Well, think about it. Think about what it means. Forget the word “art.” This applies to every person, no matter what they’re doing. You can invent your own world. But it isn’t just an idea. You’re going to put your world into this one we all share. You have the power. You just have to use it. You’re going to lay out your vision of reality and then make it fact in the world. This doesn’t isolate you. It has the opposite effect. You come into the world we all share, but you do it from a position of power. Then all your old problems vanish. You have a new set of problems, but you can solve them creatively. This is a new life.

Some 45 years later, based on that kernel of advice, I put together Exit From The Matrix.

This is why I keep writing about the individual. This is why I differentiate the individual and the group. This is why I keep analyzing and exposing the political movements that, behind their masks, want to promote and control groups. And sideline and eliminate the individual.

I’m writing for the individual who can change his basic conceptions and invent all the energy he needs to “come into” the continuum with the vision of what he truly wants to invent, who has the power to invent it, who takes joy and satisfaction from inventing it, who understands first-hand the difference between that open and marvelous power and the grotesque power used to control others.

Ultimately, and in the long term then, I’m writing for every individual who can change his own mind according to his own deepest dreams.

The stage play of Self and the global mystery

The stage-play of Self and the global mystery

by Jon Rappoport

October 20, 2017

Consider that everything happening on planet Earth is an enormous stage play.

The mystery is: what is the theme? What is the payoff? What is the climax?

And even more deeply, what is the role of Self, the individual, in this play?

The key phrase is “in this play.” Because most people are, indeed, inside the play. They have roles. They may not be aware of the parts they’re playing, but that doesn’t change the situation or the dilemma.

How unusual would it be if, in a theater, in a city, citizens were led on to a stage to audition for parts—and the director said, “Well, we want you in this production, but we can’t show you the script. We can’t tell you your role. You’ll just have to feel your way along. Trust us, we know what we’re doing. And by the way, you’ll be playing your part for the rest of your life…”

Self doesn’t want this arrangement. Self wants something else, a way to see what the play is, a way to climb out of it.

Where to start? How to begin? What is the exit strategy?

That strategy depends on imagination. It can’t go anywhere without it.

The long-running Earth stage-play has severe limits. It tries to impose its energy-depleting plot-lines on Self.

But with imagination, a person can conceive of a new play, and create it, and centrally participate in it.

In fact, Self has been waiting for just such an opportunity. The cells of his body and brain, his thoughts, his energies have been waiting.

However, waiting doesn’t do it.

Connecting with one’s own imagination does do it. It initiates a cascade of ideas and emotions, which in turn feed back into imagination, making it even more powerful.

A new stage-play can come into being.

This is why I developed many imagination exercises and techniques for my collection, Exit From The Matrix.

Imagination is the source of possibilities which don’t yet exist, but could.

Imagination makes the as-yet unborn future real.

Imagination doesn’t feel hemmed in by what already exists.

A person, inspired by his own imagination, looks beyond his own present circumstances to inventing a larger future.

Imagination doesn’t ask for lengthy explanations. It just asks for a vision based on the desire for a great adventure.

The present becomes a platform from which to change reality.

Imagination says, “I understand you’re looking for different circumstances, and also looking for a different scope of operation. All that is possible.”

The individual has the capacity to re-energize his life by inventing a new future, and imagination is the key.

The permanence of the “ongoing stage play” and a person’s enduring role in it is an illusion.

Imagination proves that and proves that the beginning of liberation is just a moment away.
