Imagination is as natural and real as breathing. People who don’t know this or forget it come up against a brick wall.
Some of them then go to booze and drugs, some to violence, some to despair, some to the straitjacket of a severely repetitive mechanical life, some to the dull, dull ground of passivity.
Life is not a machine. Humans are not machines, although they often play one day after day.
Humans are creative.
They can step on that, try to grind it into dust, make up a thousand excuses, but the fact remains.
Societies and civilizations are never creative, after a certain point in their development. They opt for standard shapes and standard patterns of thought and standard organizations.
This devolution isn’t just the “the strong controlling the weak.”
It’s a subconscious impulse that spreads like a disease. Throughout history, you see it manifest in many forms.
These days, we have the massive Surveillance State. It’s an expression of “the standard human who must think and act in certain ways.”
Imagination puts the lie to all this.
Imagination goes anywhere you want it to, and in the process, you discover ideas and realms and dimensions and power that would otherwise have remained invisible to the end of time.
This is the natural state of affairs.
Everything else is programming.
Programming comes in two forms: what is done to the individual, and what he does to himself.
Every spiritual system and spiritual teaching, down through history, has initially or eventually discarded imagination and thrown it on the junk-heap.
It’s long past the time to reverse that trend.
The creative power of the individual, which is the key to his future, his happiness, his freedom, flows from his imagination.
For this reason, over the last 20 years, I’ve developed hundreds of imagination exercises, about 50 of which are included in my collection, Exit From The Matrix.
Here are the full contents of my mega-collection Exit From The Matrix. You can order it here:

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.

God, being the Creator, is of course creative. Human beings are the apex of His creation, created in His image. Hence it follows that we should be and have to be creative. Otherwise we fail to resemble our Creator and fall short of what we are supposed to be.
While mnay great religions start out as a step beyond the existing norm, it is very unfortunate that oftentimes they soon fall prone to institutionalism and become stale. And that is why First Amendment rights, namely religious freedom, must be universally protected as a basic human right. One’s search for his true being must not be regulated by any state or church.
Very good, ´´The creative power of the individual, which is the key to his future, his happiness, his freedom, flows from his imagination.´´

Olin Levi Warner, Imagination (1896). Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building, Washington, D.C.
Imagination is the ability to produce and simulate novel objects, peoples and ideas in the mind without any immediate input of the senses. It is also described as the forming of experiences in the mind, which can be re-creations of past experiences such as vivid memories with imagined changes, or they can be completely invented and possibly fantastic scenes. Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process. A basic training for imagination is listening to storytelling (narrative), in which the exactness of the chosen words is the fundamental factor to “evoke worlds”.´´
We’re up shit creek without a paddle, you know that Jon. whats coming should be quite the re-awakening. There is no history just repetition. New age sodom and Gomorrah
Imagination is the sense to pick up the boat and portage one’s way out of Shit Creek.
It could be said that a vivid imagination is a very valuable thing to possess in these times.
The Quantum Conspiracy
What of those rogue particles that dreamt up reality
That created the fantasy of you and me?
Riding the sacred waves of eternity
Conspiring to create this crazy phantasm of the free.
What did the Abyss have in mind
When it projected the gilded eons,
Igniting the suffering of time
And the nightmares of mortal peons?
Who conjured up this broken hearted life?
Where love’s dreams all turn to dust,
Victims of history’s jaded tale of strife
And Mankind’s ongoing saga of blood lust.
Can we not see eternity’s reflection
In each other’s longing eyes?
For In mortality’s solemn benediction
Our spirit makes ready to fly!
My soul has strummed the ages
And bled for a glimpse of eternity,
While turning history’s parchment pages
Stained with the blood of Man’s cruel paternity.
And then the great bard said ‘To be or not to be?’
As I begged for another dram or two,
To numb the brokenhearted me
As love keeps changing hue.
Alas I have heard my ode to joy
As the mountain mists embrace us,
Feeling the kiss of the morning coy
As our squirrely friends scamper and fuss.
How can I ever return to the mundane?
To live as just another programmed cog
In the welter works of the insane
Another chit in Adam Smith’s log.
Dear Shylock is coming for his pound rightful
As father time continues to imprison the Madding crowd
With mortal sentence most frightful
Killing our most lofty aspirations proud.
So where does this vaunted hero’s journey end?
As the sun sets beyond the Ridges Blue
Is it hiding just around the bend?
Or maybe it’s nestled in the hearts of me and you.
We are Eternity’s lost dreams
Shadows on the walls of Kronos lair,
Enchanted by those Madison Avenue Siren Screams
That at the fabric of our lives tare.
And here I sit at the end of forever
Just a quantum apparition,
As I move the Wizard’s lever
Lifting love’s lonely partition.
And behind the screen
I have found eternity’s golden loom,
That answers our haunted screams
From beyond the wailing walls of doom.
Opening the petals of our hearts
To celebrate love’s last lament,
While revealing our most sacred part
In our blossoms intoxicating scent
Where now, my enchanted soul, will thee fly?
Beyond the dreams of yesteryear?
To unravel this world’s tapestry of lies
With our precious pearl drop tears.
“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist
And good on ya for that, Jon! Imagination, critical thinking, and just plain LOVE are our ways out of this madness and into an infinitely better universe!
Dear Shylock is coming for his pound of flesh, claimed owed back to him from his dealing offered in no real consideration.
Even gold as ‘money’ or ‘$’ is fictional, gold’s real value is that it resists corrosion, and that it is highly conductive for electricity, or perhaps of it’s aesthetics beauty and malleability. Money is a fictional concept perp-ed on the world, a vague artificial representation of real tangible value, for control (theft) of real tangible articles (including this earth) by issuer of the artificial value, aka money.
Hell the Div of Wildlife or states/counties/country, whoever they are, Sell the lives of animals, elk, deer, bear, moose, fish etc. for $!. A repugnant and abhorrent example revealing the insidious intention behind this artificial ‘value’. They do not ‘own’ these lives to ‘sell’! They do not own anything, it is a false claim, similar in many ways to the horrendous ‘divine right of kings’.
Distorted even further with debt backed central bank issued fiat currencies such as Federal Reserve Note ‘$’. A promissory Note, it is debt, and the noteholder is FedRes which claims to be creditor/beneficiary. It is all their ‘$’, we use their stuff, their ‘value’, so they can take it backed or charge fees/tax or ‘compensations’ for usury. We buy things, land, houses, cars etc etc with Their ‘$’, so they claim this property to be Their property, hence ‘pay’ property taxes or face confiscation/eviction. All without informed consent however, it is all coercive fraud.
Gold coins have images of gov’t ‘leaders’ or Caesar or personas or images/texts in relation to their ‘rule’, showing they are the creditor, issuer, it is their fictional ‘value’ sent to intervene between creation and the created (theft by impostor).
Gold coins are this scam too when it comes right down to it, what is real vs what is presumptive. Make Believe, made what is ‘imagined’ to be true value.
