If the Individual is an Artist of Reality

…Then what are the Illuminati illuminated ABOUT?

They’re illuminated about their own invented narratives and story lines and symbols and ceremonies and rituals—which, when you add them up, result in ART; in that case, perverse art.

Every secret society and organized religion…if you stripped them of their art, what would they have left? About as much hair as Sampson, after Delilah clipped it off.

It’s easy to say, “Oh, but the masses are incapable—one person at a time—of becoming artists who individually invent and shape their own highest realities, so why even bring it up as a possibility? Just forget about it and let life go on as it always has.”

But here is the problem. When the individual believes he is unable to invent his own reality, he accepts what perverse groups design for him. He’s entranced by their symbols and story lines and pretended metaphysical insights and their systems of illumination and their concocted theatrical ceremonies and rituals. He doesn’t see the art and artifice because he doesn’t see art at all.

So he says, “My church, my secret society doesn’t invent anything. My church has DISCOVERED a connection to the ultimate reality, and I’ve joined them.”

It’s the same with the so-called science of virology. “These researchers aren’t inventing fictitious stories about the existence of viruses. They’ve DISCOVERED the viruses. I don’t know anything about that process. How could I? But they’re QUALIFIED. So I accept what they say. If it means I have hide my face with a mask, lock myself up in my home, bankrupt my business…so what? It’s NECESSARY.”

“Inserts in the brain? Nanoparticles as sensors inside the brain, receiving instructions from Control Central? QUALIFIED people would handle that, so let them shape my perception with those inserts. I’m sure it’ll work out well. I mean, SOMEBODY has to be in charge of reality. I’m certainly not. How could I be?”

Huxley, Brave New World: “Hot tunnels alternated with cool tunnels. Coolness was wedded to discomfort in the form of hard X-rays. By the time they were decanted the embryos had a horror of cold. They were predestined to emigrate to the tropics, to be miner and acetate silk spinners and steel workers. Later on their minds would be made to endorse the judgment of their bodies. ‘We condition them to thrive on heat,’ concluded Mr. Foster. ‘Our colleagues upstairs will teach them to love it’.”

Groups, large and small, are made to limit the elasticity of reality.

Here is the kicker. No one knows what any individual, over the course of his life, would invent as HIS OWN reality…but there is a general consensus that it would be too dangerous to find out, to allow such a voyage to take place.

In other words, people, left to their own devices, are threats; so they must be controlled.

In other words, freedom must be chained up.

Of course, it’s not as if we are living in a paradise here and now, with all the restrictions on freedom surrounding us.

THAT experiment is not working out well at all.

Over the long-term, the only way out of the mazes that civilizations create and impose is: individuals need to invent their own realities.

There has to be an understanding of what this means.

No one said improving that understanding would be easy.

It requires a completely different kind of education, from the bottom up.

It requires, for example, an immersion in IMAGINATION. Without it, individuals are going to opt for their smallest and most parochial conceptions of what reality can be. Individuals are going to invent what they’ve been trained to invent, or they’re going to rebel against the training like common criminals.

“Oh, but the kind of educational revolution you’re suggesting would be too difficult. It could never work…”

Newsflash: every radical departure from What Already Exists is a massive challenge.

And just to be clear, here is civilization’s counter-argument: “Reality you say? This is not something that is INVENTED. It’s DISCOVERED. It’s discovered by the people who are trained in that kind of work. What they reveal, we must follow. Because it is the truth.”

There it is, the Big Lie.

    “If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”
    ― Charles Bukowski

    I thought of Fauci – “Mr. Paul, you don’t know what you’re talking about!” and “This report has been approved by people up and down the chain.” Whatever that means. Yes, it is a chain that binds these career men and women together. They are prisoners of their own invention. Sworn to uphold it, to pledge allegiance to the tacit understanding, that life can be controlled by powerful non-living particles.

    A day or two, post Jan. 6, Jon wrote about it & said something like [gist]:

    ‘Now that was a false flag, on numerous levels, occurring simultaneously, if I ever saw one.’

    I have read your blog over the years and I find your current theme about the “Individual” especially interesting. You started with Ayn Rand which was a great introduction.

    Keep up the great work that you share with all of us and maybe in some small way we can stop the destruction of society by the state.

    Frank Chodorov did not think that it can be saved and the cycle will have to continue and we will become the remnants to start the cycle again. Like Frank I believe there is still hope.

  7. Jim S. Smith says:

    One of human’s greatest fears: The Unknown.

    This, then, becomes a most powerful tool in the hands of a tyrant. That is, “fear”. When conditioned into a society that values structure, order, and knowing everything (within the predetermined confines) around them – is the perfect “comfortable” prison within the minds of the many. The aspiring tyrant, knowing this, seeks to extend his/her power by holding the people hostage – to the fear of the unknown.

    Those who naturally creative and far-thinking, constantly challenge those borders to understanding, and challenge themselves to press onward and forward. It is THEY who are the navigators and discoverers of new territories, and the map-makers of the new realities they themselves invent. The tyrant, of course, sees them as adversaries, competition, and even DANGEROUS to his/her own ends. It is these artists who have very little to fear from the unknown, but are the ones who make it become KNOWN!

    This is also why “ignorance” is also an effective weapon against a population, and most artful tyrants use this tool as well. It is through this “ignorance” of the elasticity of “reality”, that the people be kept confined, and never venturing beyond the comforts of what is “known”. Ignorance is often at the foundation of “fear”, and “fear” can expound and expand “ignorance”!


    The so-called “experts” and other government “henchmen” are most effective in keep the people corralled within the fences of ignorance and fear. This was the VERY SAME principle behind the whole aspect of “the flat-Earth theory” during the “European Dark Ages”: If everyone thought the ends of the Earth were not too far off, then they would never venture beyond those limits. – The “church” loved this! ! !

    “Plato’s Allegory of the Cave” tells the story so well, and is just as poignant today, as it was in the times Plato first wrote about it.

    “…what are the Illuminati illuminated ABOUT?”

    The “Illuminated Ones” are not quite named accurately. “The Dark Ones” would be a much more accurate description of this cabal of generational, World-wide gathered delusion.

    “These researchers… DISCOVERED the viruses.”

    ‘Discovered’ is one way to describe something after you yourself have caused it, right?

    “No one knows what any individual, over the course of his life, would invent as HIS OWN reality.”

    Just think of the kind of world we could be living in right now if people were encouraged to pursue their inborn creativity instead of finding multiple ways to be imprisoned in thought, word, and deed by Society’s Circus Trainers.

    “…here is civilization’s counter-argument: “Reality you say? This is not something that is INVENTED. It’s DISCOVERED. It’s discovered by the people who are trained in that kind of work. What they reveal, we must follow. Because it is the truth.”

    So we have the kind of world we do right now because of the actions of ‘people who are trained in that kind of work’. If an artist makes a big pile of crap, one might be inclined to say they are a bad artist. But what if that was the artist’s intention? What if that was the goal of their ‘education’. Then they would be brilliant, great artists.

    Therefore, looking at the shape of the world today, it looks like we have some great artists to thank for all this.

    Other than having different bloodline DNA, the major difference between the Illuminati and the rest of us is that they are “home schooled” and learn the exact opposite of what is taught to the rest of humanity. Not only are they taught they are capable of creating reality, they learn how: one reality for themselves and another reality for the masses. They believe they are superior and born to rule while humans are taught they must be ruled by “their superiors,” otherwise chaos would result. We are seeing chaos now because the matrix duality game is ending and the universal time clock is being reset. That is what they mean by The Great Reset, although they really want you to think it’s all about money.

    Another mistake we make about them is that they must be brilliant. They are not. Instead of Newton’s Apple and Darwin’s Fallacy, they learn universal natural laws we never hear of, which for the most part are the exact opposite of what we are taught is absolute fact. They become masters of inversion through illusion, we become masters of indoctrination through repetition.

    Jon is right, at our core we really are artists of reality, we just forgot. Earth is a school for masters; we all agreed to a mind-wipe before coming here to even the game board between the many dark/light, good/evil duality players. The moment an individual wakes up and remembers they are multidimensional cosmic citizens with infinite awareness who chose to come here for experiences unavailable anywhere else in the universe, they immediately exit the dark’s fabricated matrix and step into creating their own reality and regaining freedom from a control matrix that was a complete illusion from the beginning.

    If you need a visual for this, picture the puerile Emmanuel Macron commanding the entire nation of France to stay in their homes until he decides to give them their freedom back. If that isn’t a fake reality, I don’t know what is. As soon as all the people wake up, it’s game over.

    • Build Back Botter says:

      Just remember that LIFE FEELS ITSELF. Life doesn’t abide by language, indoctrination, laws. It evolves via emotional maturity. We no see the value in many seemingly encrusted institutions of thought. Life progresses by its own data collection, of everyone’s thoughts and actions, weighing such value on mental integrity. Life is self-generating, always removing the poisoning thoughts that seek to impede it.

    I have this nagging suspicion, that artists FAUCI & CO, are getting ready to roll out Lockdown 2.0., which of course will sound the death nell for our economy.

    They seem to forget that WE ARE THE ECONOMY!

    Clearly, a case of The Cure being worse than The COVID.

    Lord help us all.

    This morning I was doing some writing and listening to some spiritual music by Dan Gibson. I took a break to have a Thai Coconut prepared by my girlfriend and fiancee. It was the first time I had ever had one. It was delicious and refreshing. After finishing it I returned to my writing and Dan Gibson’s music. The very minute I sat down I looked at the title for the song that was playing and it read “The Coconut that You Gave Me.” When I turned and told my girlfriend she broke out laughing. Apparently the Universe has a sense of humor.

    I wonder…..is the Universe Douglas Adams? (42)

    http://www.realneville.com – Neville Goddard – 20th century mystic with deep ties to William Blake – worth checking out. He’s written some wonderful books as well.

    I really really really appreciate this series on the individual and Imagination – and all of Jon’s writings. He really gets it. Ultimately this web of lies under which we struggle always seeks one thing – our consent – tacit or otherwise – because WE are the prize WE are the luminous beings who, when asleep, can be harnessed and channeled for selfish ends. A revocation of consent to the current reality box leads inevitably to Ecstasy. When we awake we know who we are – the Godhead emerged fully self realized into 3D. “And then the slave awoke to find that he is God.” This is no Roman demi-urge but the one, true, and living I AM — fully realized in us and through us. World without end Amen. As Neville Goddard says “when I awoke, God became me.”

    • Build Back Botter says:

      Thank the quantum universe that there are always “NOW” thinkers in every era, people who seem to have one foot out of the timeline and in the realm of ancient elders to always nudge us in the right direction. Jon is definitely one such man. A time traveller, or non-time visitor.

    Constant alertness and willingness to WAKEUP from hypnosis we are in, is THE ultimate reality; individual creation with no limits is only possible in an awakened state!

      This should be the deciding factor (as all of the other horrific ingredients in vaccines should have suggested) to ban such dangerous, experimental “vaccines”. We cannot allow capitalists to commodify the human genome, apparently the last frontier in exploitation.

  16. Build Back Botter says:

    Humanity has progressed to this point by way of reason and instinct. Reason (right-handed (left-brained) analytical thinking) has taken precedence for centuries, suppressing our instinctive, feminine nature. But what inexorably happens is that we paint ourselves into a corner. By suppressing our left-brained, creative nature, humanity ends up walking in circles, like a nail driven into one foot. Unleashed creativity, imagination is our only route out of this decaying spiral. Life feels itself. We MUST pour our imaginations into the quantum realm of potential physical realities.

    Peter Greenaway is a director who is fascinated by general reality vs. individual reality, and often explores it in his films. His classic, Drowning by Numbers, is a must see.

    “But as the opening to Peter Greenaway’s Drowning by Numbers, it is absolutely perfect. The 1988 film is a beautiful series of vignettes and images, twisting our perception back to a youthful curiosity that we have somehow forgotten, or perhaps repressed. Events are dictated by the rules of games, the English countryside is a blend of the morbid and the hyper-colourful, and traditional ideas of numbering and indexing are picked at like a child trying to sort this strange, ethereal world of sex and death into some sort of sense.”
