The “glue” that makes us all average, normal, and clueless

Tragic events, crises, threats are designed to capture our minds and hold us in a state of emergency, whether or not such a state is officially declared by our august leaders.

This “glue” is one aspect of the Matrix.

And of course, when events seem to threaten our very existence, these leaders are all too eager to enact responses and solutions that make the original crises pale by comparison.

We couldn’t be blamed for defining “solution” as “whatever is worse than the problem.”

In this sordid mix, what part of ourselves is being held down? What capability are we unwilling to exercise? What does fear keep us from doing?

It’s obvious that freedom takes a hit. We become more cautious about exercising our freedoms. However, freedom isn’t just an idea or an empty condition. Freedom implies power. Individual power.

If it didn’t, who would care one way or another about freedom? Who would make an issue out of it?

If each one of us didn’t have power, freedom would be no more than a fairy tale with which we could amuse ourselves.

The exploration of power is not something you’ll find in a school or in the workplace or in a community group. It’s a kind of taboo. People don’t talk about it.

Not talking about it makes as much sense as writing a book about the sun and neglecting to mention it gives off heat.

The repressed conversation about power is a cultural artifact. We’re somehow led to believe it’s impolite to bring up the subject. It’s self-aggrandizing. It runs against the grain of appearing humble. It seems to legislate against the mandatory premise that “we’re all in this together.”

What does this taboo conceal?

Power is the capacity to imagine and create.

Rather than being about “the truth,” power is about inventing new truth, in the sense that, when you create, you bring something into the world that wasn’t there before.

After a great artist or scientist makes imagination into fact, others then gather around and analyze the truth of what has just appeared. But the cardinal happening was the invention itself.

Even more important was the capacity to make imagination into fact.


Flowing from freedom.

This is what crisis and threat and tragedy seem to blanket with despair. But that is an illusion.

Nothing can happen in this world that changes or diminishes your inherent power, unless you decide it does.

Staged crises are also an example of power. They are perverse art flung up on the screen of our perception, designed to make us feel we have to give in. Give in to what? To the sacrifice of our own capacity to imagine and create reality.

“Somebody else made reality for me.”

That idea is also the hallmark of hypnosis. The subject, in a trance, accepts what is already real as the final summing up of his life. His only job is to adjust his actions to the world as it is.

There are many examples. Look at the mesmerizing tonnage of legend launched to convince the population of ancient India that the caste system was a cosmological necessity, given the rules of universal justice and the regulations governing reincarnation.

This “spiritual system” was, finally, a cosmic fascism. It was a work of art designed and managed by the aristocratic and priest classes, to cement their control over the population. In other words, these rulers invented a reality for the masses that thereafter commanded:

“We made reality for you. Your job is now to live inside it.”

Likewise, in recent centuries, the rise of science was twisted and extrapolated into its own legend: materialism.

“There is nothing beyond particles whirling in space. That’s it. That’s what is real, everywhere. You live inside this idea. Adjust. Reject any thoughts that don’t mesh with it.”

And against all this is, if we want it, freedom. Power. The individual capacity to imagine and create reality.

How far does this power extend?

Life on planet Earth appears to mandate against any far-reaching exercise of creative power. That, too, is an illusion.

There are no limits.

The whole repeating covert op of tragedy, tragedy, tragedy, grieving, grieving, grieving, coming together, healing…the whole endless and repeating ceremony is put there to assure us that we are little creatures with nowhere else to go but Acceptance. This, we are told, is our only option for redemption.

This idea has been sold in the marketplace of spiritual commerce since the dawn of time.

It’s a straight-out lie. It’s told, again and again, to serve rulers.

And rulers want to make sure that the number of creatively powerful individuals is kept to a bare minimum. Otherwise, the single monolithic reality they have invented and sold would shake and fall apart.

Drowned in a multidimensional triumph of many powerful individuals creating many brilliant and simultaneous realities.

That is the true unalloyed meaning of an open society.

    So well said Jon. There is a war being waged against the individual.

  2. About Creativity says:

    Very good, ´´Rather than being about “the truth,” power is about inventing new truth, in the sense that, when you create, you bring something into the world that wasn’t there before´´.

    ´´Freedom implies power. Individual power´´.

    Thanks Jon…so right you are.

    It is interesting that EVERY religion is a story of powerlessness. This is extremely pertinent to me because it was used to hold me hostage as an obedient victim from childhood. The trauma bonding makes it particularly pernicious and difficult to dislodge.

    The trauma is a way of anchoring programming and beliefs making it harder to shift which is why the elite favor it.

    I have always thought that Christianity in particular was a masterful form of mind control used to excuse tyrants and despots…with the DEMANDS that the wronged party FORGIVE.
    IF you have ever been prayed over a t a church the first thing they do before they will pray over you is to get you to forgive all abusers, yes the unrepentant ones who sadistically enjoyed causing you pain..and refuse to apologize.

    Christianity has been used as a tool of oppression and victim blaming par excellance. King James springs to mind and The Witches Hammer.

    The current positive thinking garbage is along those same lines…if you get sick, it must be your were thinking bad thoughts.

    These bullSh*t narratives that the elite push remind me of that Twilight Zone episode with Little Anthony in “It’s a Good Life”.

    Do know that they are losing control of the narrative as we speak which is causing them to throw tantrums and namecall.

    As usual first rule of debate- IF you have NO Case and start name calling and ad hominem attacks-you have lost-period.

    Most of the “consensus” of the media echo chamber (aka cia shills) yelling charges of “climate denier!”, “racist!”,and “Transphobe!” are case and point..just alot of froth and no substance.

    Hey, we are all witches now.
    Watch them huff and puff and blow themselves up.

      Hi Erika. You make good points about forgiveness, and used the word “DEMANDS” which is not exactly conducive to free will and the individual, is it?

      Here is another way to look at it that might be helpful. The best psychologist I knew, and I tend to despise them and particularly psychiatrists for the reasons Jon mentions, would tell people to think of a bad feeling they were experiencing and then say to themselves, “forget that memory.” Of course we never truly forget anything, it remains in our subconscious, but this seemed to have the effect of releasing the negative emotion associated with that memory. If the bad feeling persists, one should continue saying “Forget that memory,” because rarely is it one memory that it bothering us. Another friend instead uses the term, “Release that emotion,” with success.

        I understand what you are talking about. That process is a personal process and worthwhile.
        I am talking about systemically induced demands.

        I am addressing systemic retraumatization by religious protocol AND/OR the psychopath/narcissist themselves. I have a tendency to discount most of what psychiatry says, so i should just call them (system and persons)”evil”, “sadistic” or other epithet.
        Having experienced both. I know that a sadistic person will literally punch you in the head- blame you for the fact they did that, and then demand that you forgive them without apologizing. (which is contradictory- but they are not rational)
        Christianity has the same problems- they worship a narcissistic god who has his own son murdered so the guilty can go free.

        So now we have these “social justice” movements for lack of a better word (and if you want to check those out typing “Evergreeen College” is a great place to start)

        The Climate Hysteria, calling everyone racist, and the 108 various genders are actually VERY CULTLIKE.
        They are sameysamey as christianity in that they bludgeon people over the head demanding special not equal treatment- shutting down all dialogue in a bizarre narcissistic hijacking of reality.

        Here is what i am talking about.

        Most people don’t have time to watch what is going on,(and the media sure as beep won’t show you) but this is an example of what is transpiring on university campuses across this country(watching the videos of Brett Weinstien are a huge eye opener)This is also sweeping into our local and state governments as these students infiltrate them.
        So while the movements have no substance- they are extremely dangerous.
        This is the latest iteration in a long line of totalitarian movements,like christianity, or stalinism…and it is coddled and helped along by media.

    This Is super great read on Power of human creativity. How are War and Propaganda the tools of control used to makes humans quiet and under control? i.e. The pentagon is the largest office building in the planet but people never protest this, why?

    Freedom’s Wasteland

    America, America God shed his grace on thee
    For you were my love, my home, the great land of the free!
    I mourn for our once great and mighty nation
    That to the world has fallen from her lofty station,
    As a beacon of freedom on strifes front lines
    A nation at once brave, bold and kind.
    We bared our soul for other nations to follow
    And today we stand on fate’s awful gallows.
    Through the misty morning air
    I spotted a faint rocket trailed by a tenuous red glare,
    Telling the tale of a noble nation state
    Whose star does now before us abate.
    A nation on wounded knee
    Its striped flag tattered by the hot levant breeze.
    History will want to know, will she ever rise again
    Or is this her sad and bitter end?
    Where is this once great land of the free
    Shining example from sea to sea?
    Our fathers fought the virulent strains of world tyranny
    Now just a fading spectre, a lost memory,
    Peace was then our sacred responsibility
    For without the dream of peace what is liberty?
    And with our anguished tears
    I pray that we can dispel those state driven fears,
    That have led to needless global strife
    And a gross waste of precious life.
    For we are prisoners in this wasteland of the free
    Where the only true escape is through you and me,
    For the very source of our serfdom
    Is the tribute we pay to parchment paper freedom.
    Freedom cannot be bequeathed by men in fancy wigs
    It is the sap that binds the leaf to the twig.
    But freedom’s struggle will never end
    It is a fire in the heart that the soul doth tend.
    And in each moment we will arise
    With the spark of revolution in our eyes,
    And though we be thrown into renditions cell
    Our ardent hearts will never be quelled.

    For peace and liberty will forever endure
    In the hearts and minds of the citizenry pure.
    And though the bells of freedom may no more ring
    As the bald eagle takes permanent wing.
    The eternal flame I must now myself tend
    For I live in Freedom’s Wasteland.

    Truth is a negative entity – non-contradiction. It is a “finding.” Time has a way of revealing further contradictions to correct our thinking. Logic, then, is a friend of imagination – it creates big empty spaces by eliminating what is false. Those who reject logic end up living in a world cluttered with dogma.

  7. britinara says:

    “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” (Karl Rove quoted by Ron Suskind, NYTimes Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004)
