The power of viruses and the Power of You

“I saw a horror movie and somehow it was the greatest experience of my life.”

In this article, I depart, for a moment, from the strategy of citing evidence in my coverage of the “China epidemic.” (For my series of articles on the “China epidemic,” click here.)

Instead, I want to make a few brief notes on the subject of power.

For many or most people, there is a kind of programming in the mind which urges the acceptance of viruses as powerful. This programming results in visceral emotional reactions toward microbes.

The collection of sensations would be something like: riding on a train heading toward a possible break in the tracks. Each person on board has been warned. No one is sure whether the tracks, a few miles in the distance, have actually been ripped apart. The train’s engineer in the cab isn’t stopping.

There is fear, of course. But there is also something else. An almost wild feeling. Where does it comes from? It comes from the realization that power is SOMEWHERE. Where? In the potential break in the tracks.

People don’t often experience a sensation of power. For that reason, they don’t want to minimize the importance of the tracks up ahead. They don’t want to throw away that feeling. At some level, they believe that, if they do throw it away, there will be no power anywhere. And THAT would provoke panic.

The idea that they might be coddling an ILLUSION—and the whole warning they received was a monstrous fabrication to begin with—well, this prospect is entirely out of the question. That couldn’t be, under any circumstances. That would be too, too much.

If you were so foolish as to approach such a person and suggest he could, first and foremost, look to his OWN power, he would stare at you as if you were speaking a language from another planet. To say that your advice, under the circumstances—the speeding train, the tracks, the warning—was inappropriate…this would be a vast understatement.

If a person, for whatever reason, believes he has no significant power, he searches for it elsewhere. If he can find a train, a warning, and danger, he’ll climb onboard. It’s far, far better than nothing.

In our society and present culture, of course, the thought that the individual has a great deal of inherent power, and a right to it, is on the wane. That ship, to go to another metaphor, is taking on lots and lots of water.

Typical sociopaths in high places, and their bootlickers, apply basic psychology they don’t teach in fifty-thousand-dollars-a-year colleges: People must be able to imagine power is SOMEWHERE. They don’t believe they have it themselves. So why not invoke images of power in a venue which results in a strange allegiance:

“I’ll see and feel power in a fearful threat to me. I’ll sign on and remain loyal, no matter what. I’ll cling to my threat, and I’ll feel rising fear and strange rising joy together.”

That’s the speeding train, the warning, the tracks.

That’s the virus.

    Very good, Many options of thought and for me, I will take the thought of the ´´individual´´ moving forward in (my) life. I will continue to access and discover the power within.

    “That’s the virus.”

    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

    Hi Jon, love your synopsis of the psychology involved and the nod & hint towards our own individual power… not some nebulous wishful platitude that – somehow – we can overcome the inertia of the current oppressive power structure / ‘runaway train’. Of course,en masse we could accomplish that handily if we would all come together sans the engineered fear. In order to vanquish that block, we must first find our individual REAL power. This corona virus scare offers just such an opportunity.

    Knowledge is power. And as you’re illustrating with impeccable logic in this corona virus scare series, the whole “deadly germ theory” falls flat. Unless of course, as you’ve noted in a prior article in this series, you are compromised by toxins. Nevertheless, here you point out that fear, too, is toxic.

    More importantly it empirically falls flat precisely because someone has discovered and scientifically verified that the human being can consciously control his/her autonomic systems. This has been scientifically verified by several universities world-wide. In one study, all (fifteen persons) were able to consciously neutralize a pathogen injected directly into the blood stream (within a quarter of an hour)! As the ‘discover’ of the technique says, “this is REAL power!”… and he teaches others (in a very short time) to do the same… among other feats of endurance once thought to be humanly impossible. The upshot: we REALLY are powerful; we can consciously create a healthy state in which a little ‘bug’ ain’t gotta chance !

    The ‘discoverer’ of the simple free technique is Wim Hof, “The Iceman”. As you counsel: use your imagination; he did just that for himself and figured out how to pass it on to others. As a practitioner of his method (WimHofmethod.com), my health is improving rapidly and steadily, mental-emotional clarity, tons of energy, etc. (I’m 67 w/the usual spate of aging disorders, autoimmune ‘diseases’ etc. (now seen more & more in younger & younger populations).

    All to say, I can personally confirm the “power of you” ! Thank you… your logic confirms my experience of personal power. Yet, we still have to deal with forced vaccinations… ’cause we know where all this is going…

  4. Right! What is the virus? Is the virus the cause of the claimed threat, a genetic parasite, or is the virus a cultural-mental meme that triggers the physiological responses that we are addicted to? First addict the populous to the physiology of death, then release the triggers, and the populous kills themselves slowly from the inside out. But now, concerning the virus makers. Are they free of the cultural-mental viruses they release on us? No, in fact we find they are carriers. They are themselves subject to a mental scheme of fear imposed on themselves by themselves. The virus is in fact above and beyond any group. It is a phenomenon of consciousness. Just as life is a theme within the field of consciousness, death is a theme within consciousness. The virus being the informational script carrying the character-istics of the dystopian movie you and I are in. This is our simulation. Hi Jon, how’s it going? Nice to meet you here in this sim. Its pretty wild in here huh? Yep. What is our role in here? To get out? To free minds? Or maybe to crack the codes of the simulation itself, from the inside out. 🙂

    Excellent summation.

    And it goes one step further.

    The virus is typically paired up with a vaccine. There is a break in the tracks – the authorities have assured us this is the case. But that’s ok because the authorities also have the bridge that will allow us to safely pass over said break.

    it’s no wonder anti-vaxers are so hated. We tell people that there is no bridge, but we are, for some reason, reluctant to tell people there is no break.

    I have been telling anti-vaxers (or ex-vaxers or whatever) that you’ll never get anywhere if you just tell people that vaccines are dangerous. Instead, we should point out to people that the place they go to get most of their vaccines (doctor offices/hospitals/pharmacies etc) are filled to the brim with the germs of sick people. If being around sick people was so dangerous, then it would be suicide to visit such places. On the other hand, if being around sick people is not dangerous then there is no point getting any vaccine.

    It is the above argument that can and will bring down the paradigm.

    I just saw a headline saying that 40 new incinerators had just been deployed to Wuhan. But they are allegedly for cremating bodies and medical waste. I wonder how that fits in with the complaints about the other toxic incinerators. The new incinerators may or may not actually have anything to do with the coronavirus – maybe these were incinerators they already had planned to deploy a long time ago, which people were protesting?

  7. Alan says:

    I believe in God. God created me in His image, hence I am powerful. God designed me to be healthy and thrive on Earth.

    God did not create viruses to be stronger than us nor to rule over us. The mass paranoia is total nonsense.

    I often learn best by direct experience..by that i mean trying on a mindset and living in it for awhile and seeing where it goes.

    Every popular avenue i have explored leads to stasis.
    Like you were saying JON there is a PASSIVITY in people..there was a psychologist who based his whole life’s work around this.(i think it is what you call a psychological defense mechanism: Peter Michaelson, Phantom of the Psyche)

    Basically ALL AVENUES are about looking for power outside yourself..or looking for answers to life’s biggest questions outside yourself.
    Public schools are the largest propagators of inner passivity as well as religions in childhood.
    For adults the media and corporate workplace(a mini totalitarian state) insures passivity.
    Spirituality for adults laregely has 2 avenues- worshipping something outside yourself- or stilling the mind and being passive.
    All of these lead to depression and helplessness- exactly where the oligarchy wants you..it is deliberate without doubt.

    The Chinese languages might be to blame for the Chinese populations inability to determine the hoax here.

    We have a phonetic word for hoax that triggers a network of concepts. Thus, we can follow Jon’s line of thought. The Chinese use ideograms (miniature cartoon pictures and symbols) that are astonishingly effective in many ways– but fall short of the power of the English language.

    To imagine what it’s like to communicate in Chinese, imagine trying to communicate with emojis and little pictograms. Ten people will understand ten different things from one set of pictograms. When I ask a Chinese person who speaks good English to translate pictograms, they always hesitate, guess, and get different ways of saying it then then next Chinese person.

    How would the Chinese say “Cowona Wire-ess iz cat-egorry– not spessific! Might be hoax!. 🙂 :< **$+ @
