Power Outside The Matrix: Cult of the Reality Builders

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

The cult of the reality builders has been alive and well since the beginning of history on planet Earth.

The cult takes on different forms, but the objective has always been the same: create a central image that conveys basic concepts of existence.

During my 30 years as a reporter covering “the news behind the news,” I’ve seen countless instances in which the matrix shows up, swims into view.

The matrix, the central image, is a lie. But not just any lie.

It is very deep shared picture of reality.

It has all the earmarks of being true. Therefore, many people accept it. People know it’s right.

People believe that, if it were wrong, if it were an illusion, their view of the world would melt.

So they retreat. They turn their backs. They settle into accepting the matrix-picture.

People need more power—more individual power, so they can both stand and operate outside the matrix.

Wherever you see false pictures of reality—in the areas of science, politics, energy, medicine, media, money, covert intelligence, the military, religion, multinational corporations—you also see the need for individuals to gain power, so they can stand and operate outside these pictures.

Limited concepts of space, time, and energy—these, too, are “given” to human beings as the be-all and end-all of a story. A story that ultimately short-circuits and short-changes what the individual is really capable of.

The entire mural of imposed Reality is aimed at radically diminishing the individual’s power.

So in addition to my work as an investigative reporter, I’ve been researching the individual’s ability to go beyond this mural of reality.

In the late 1980s, in concert with the brilliant hypnotherapist Jack True (who gave up doing hypnosis with his patients), I developed many exercises and techniques for expanding the creative power of the individual. Both Jack and I were continuing a tradition that goes all the way back to early Tibet.

Some of those exercises are included in my collection, Power Outside The Matrix. These techniques are aimed at accessing more energy, more imagination, more stability and intelligence “beyond the mural of reality.”

Power Outside The Matrix is all about being able to think, act, and create both outside and inside The Matrix. Because that’s the goal: to be able to function in both places.

People are consciously or unconsciously fixated on boundaries and systems. They are hoping for whatever can be delivered through a system.

That fixation is a form of mind control.

Freedom isn’t a system.

But freedom needs creative power, otherwise it just sits there and becomes a lonely statue gathering dust in an abandoned park.

At one time or another, every human being who has ever lived on this planet has abandoned his creative power. The question is: does he want to get it back?

It never really goes away. It is always there. It is the basis of a life that can be lived. A life that can be chosen. People instead choose roles that don’t require that power. They think this is a winning strategy.

It isn’t.

A section of my mega-collection, titled Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality, features creative exercises you do on a daily basis that will help you move toward the goal of power outside The Matrix. The exercises are all about increasing your energy and stability—and about the invention of new spaces.

Access to your internal energy, in huge amounts, is necessary for a life outside The Matrix—rather than relying on the illusory energy that The Matrix seems to provide. I’ve developed the exercises for exactly that purpose: your energy, your dynamism.

Power Outside The Matrix also features a long section called: Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation.

It’s filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.

It is far more than a logic course.

It’s an advanced approach to analysis.

Establishing power outside The Matrix requires that a person be able to deal with today’s flood of information, misinformation, and disinformation. I’ve left no stone unturned in bringing you a workable approach to analysis.

There is a further extensive section titled, A Writer’s Tutorial. People have been asking me to provide this Tutorial, and here it is in spades. But it’s not just for writers. It’s for any creative person who wants to grasp his own power, understand it, and use it to reach out into the world.

The Tutorial exposes you to lessons that go far beyond what is normally taught in writer’s seminars. In fact, several core concepts in the Tutorial contradict ordinary writer’s seminars, and thus give you access to inner resources that would otherwise be ignored.

And finally, I have included a number of audio seminars that offer a wider perspective about The Matrix and what it means to live and work outside it.

Here are the full contents of my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix. You can order it here:


power outside the matrix


Here are the particulars. These are audio presentations. 55 total hours:

* Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation (11.5-hours)

* Writer’s Tutorial (8.5-hours)

* Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality (6.5-hours)

Then you will receive the following audio presentations I have previously done:

* The Third Philosophy of Imagination (1-hour)

* The Infinite Imagination (3-hours)

* The Mass Projection of Events (1.5-hours)

* The Decentralization of Power (1.5-hours)

* Creating the Future (6-hours)

The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst (and how to analyze them). I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

* My book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies

(All the audio presentations are mp3 files and the books are pdf files. You download the files upon purchase. You’ll receive an email with a link to the entire collection.)

At the core of consciousness, there are two impulses in the individual. The first is: give in, surrender. The second is: express power without limit.

The teaching of every civilization and society is: don’t use your power. When you follow the second path, when you express your power without limits, remarkable things happen.

The veil of illusion melts away.

You meet yourself on new ground.

You know what your freedom is for.

Without imposing on the freedom of others, you live the life you always wanted.

That’s what Power Outside The Matrix is all about.

Power Outside the Matrix: Human psychodrama on the world stage

Emerging from the dead-end

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

As the drama called Human Life on Planet Earth advances in the 21st century, we are seeing an escalation of lower-brain emotional responses to events. And this is according to plan.

I want to emphasize the underlying propaganda message. It’s very important to understand that message:

“As more and more people are unable and unwilling to employ logic and rationality, those qualities diminish in importance, and you should abandon them because…they don’t serve you. They aren’t useful.”

You can see where this would lead. More and more people would surrender to their own stimulus-response mechanisms, and the overall level of chaos would increase and expand.

There is no situation in which you should abandon your own ability to employ reason and rationality, no matter what other people are doing. Their surrender should not become an excuse for you deserting your own power on any level.

The two most formidable individual powers are logic and imagination.

Logic is essentially grounding and stabilizing. It allows you to analyze any situation or cluster of information and see through to its validity or invalidity, beyond deception.

Imagination takes you soaring. It allows you to see your greatest vision for your life—and therefore act toward its fulfillment.

Others around you may be succumbing to their own misperceptions and lack of energizing spirit—but that doesn’t mean you have to.

And as an aside, if you decide you want to help those you care about and lift them up, try doing it without logic and imagination and see how far you get.

All this is preface and prelude. It occupied me for more than a decade of research and investigation, as I saw the human psychodrama entering a new phase. Its hallmark was random emotional reaction.

Nothing wrong with emotions, but entering a space where they take you from pillar to post, sucking up and draining energy, while producing no visible progress along the line of fulfilling goals…that’s not a good thing at all. It eventually ends up paralyzing the individual, who retreats from his most profound ambitions.

This was the setting in which I developed my third collection, Power Outside The Matrix. Here is a description of its contents:

This mega-collection is all about achieving power outside The Matrix and stabilizing that power.

It features a long section called: Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation.

This section is filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.

It is far more than a logic course.

It’s an advanced approach to analysis.

Establishing power outside The Matrix requires that a person be able to deal with today’s flood of information, misinformation, and disinformation. I’ve left no stone unturned in bringing you a workable approach to analysis.

Another section of this mega-collection, titled Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality, features creative exercises you do on a daily basis that will help you move toward the goal of power outside The Matrix. The exercises are all about increasing your energy and stability—and about the invention of new spaces.

Access to your internal energy, in huge amounts, is necessary for a life outside The Matrix—rather than relying on the illusory energy that The Matrix seems to provide.

This is a key fact. I’ve developed the exercises for exactly that purpose: your energy, your dynamism, independent and self-sufficient.

And finally, I have included a number of audio seminars that offer a wider perspective about The Matrix and what it means to live and work outside it.

Power Outside The Matrix: For writers and people on the verge of being writers

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers.

I’ve been around the block 10,000 times. I’ve been writing for 67 years.

I know something about it.

I also know something about the people who want to write, who want to do it outside the mainstream.

They aren’t going to journalism school. They aren’t going to jump in that river and learn that system.

This is good, because there is no system—there are only artificial pretenses of systems.

The first point is: You’re going to put something on the page that you like to see, and readers are going to engage with. Something that pulls them out of what they ordinarily expect. Which shows you’re different. You’re not out to bore them to death. This is a major plus. For you and your readers.

“He’s not trying to put me to sleep. I’m on his side already.”

Clue: If you bore readers, you’re boring yourself. And that’s fatal.

In fact, one of the reasons a person becomes a writer is to “un-bore” himself. He wants to feel alive.

This is good. This is not a sin.

So put something on the page that makes you feel alive.

That’s the test. That’s ambition in the right direction.

These instructions aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

So in my tutorial, in my explanations of logic and evidence, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

If you do opt for slavery, your writing is going to strike the ear in an artificial way. It won’t ring bells. It’ll clang. It’ll come across as trumped-up.

In my mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, I aim to liberate writers, not pin them down.

Once you feel free and write free, you can shape your work in all sorts of different ways. If you start out trying to shape your work, you’ll stall and dead end.

You’re not aiming to be a trained monkey.

We already have far too many of those.

And let me say something about the craft of writing. You know where you pick that up? From reading other writers. It comes through to you by osmosis. It’s the way a child learns to speak. He listens to people speaking, and he grasps what’s happening.

It’s wholesale, not retail.

Faith, self-belief, and determination are wellsprings of a writer. And when faith falters, determination is the key. You’re going to write, no matter what, come hell or high water.

That works.

In Power Outside The Matrix, my goal is to transmit the electricity of being a writer. In all my discussions, I come back to that.

Because, you see, being a writer is a LIFE.

It’s not just a career. The career comes out of the life.

Far too many people in this world opt for a career and then try to make a life out of it. That’s normal. That’s standard. That’s a long street that narrows and turns into an alley that ends at a blank wall.

If I loaded you down with tips and tricks and rules, I’d be directing you to that alley. I’d never do that.

If you order Power Outside The Matrix, dive into it. My aim is bringing out the writer in you—bringing out the life of the writer, so you see it and see it as your own and nobody else’s.

That’s what Power Outside The Matrix is all about.

Power Outside The Matrix: The Writer’s relentless pursuit

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers. I did my best to make it a rocket for writers.

I’m talking about real writers, not parrots.

And the relentless pursuit of something new. Always. Because what he’s already done becomes old. He knows that. He covers ground and that’s that. Then he moves on.

He can’t wait for millions of people to catch up. He’s not in that business. He’s not selling the same hot dogs over and over.

The shift to the new is not just about content and subject matter. It’s about how he expresses himself. How he writes. He can’t go on and on with the same way of writing forever.

He’s an explorer. After he’s made the journey to one unmapped country, he sails to another.

This is how he keeps himself going.

If you made a list of great writers and then read them, you’d notice each one wrote differently. They weren’t great because they all adhered to one style.

There is no one style.

There is no single universal mind with one set of rhythms and one way of expression. That’s a fantasy entertained by people who aren’t artists.

Every real artist is unique. He stands out from and against The One Unity, which is a philosophic fiction invented for the purpose of control.

Knowing this, the writer turns that apple cart upside down.

The One Unity is a metaphysical glazed donut.

It’s hypnotic. The writer breaks the trance and the spell.

When he does, people who are under the spell say, “I don’t understand what he’s doing.” But somewhere down deep, they do understand. An explosion has detonated and it’s working its way to the surface.

We’re in an extreme technological age, which has its own hypnotic spells. The dome heads of technology are floating along on a platform that is supported by pillars they believe are firm and powerful. They’re wrong. The pillars are already cracking. The whole edifice is tilting. Because so much of the technology and the language surrounding it are dead.

Real writing exposes the lie of that language. It cuts it to ribbons.

The writer relentlessly pursues what hasn’t been done before, by and with his imagination.

He finds his way by inventing the way.

My instructions to writers in my Power Outside The Matrix collection aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

In my tutorial, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

Writers give us what we need.

And one more thing for now. Writers say to us, “You can sit there and pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can pretend you’re dumb, but I know something is getting through. And whatever that something is, it’s ESSENTIAL. It makes all the difference. It’s a glimpse of what you really want.”

Power Outside The Matrix: Vision of Journalism

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers.

Speaking from my own 40 years of journalism work and my preferences on the subject, yes, of course I have a bias, but it’s not narrow. It’s wide open, and it lets anyone in, as long as they think about FACT and IMAGINATION together.

Some would call what I’m talking about here STYLE, but it’s more than that. It’s how a writer decides to present information with twists and turns and flashes and cloudbursts and attacks…

What can you make facts DO?

They’re the raw material.

You could wake up one very good day and realize you’re writing satire. Comedy. Even poetry.

You’re also, in the process, exploding the mind of the reader, because it needs to be exploded and rescued from the sober drear of “here are the data, goodbye.” I mean, really. That has to go. Away.

As a writer, do you want a fact to be a martial arts instructor toiling away at a small gym teaching the same moves over and over, or do you want a fact to be a Bruce Lee, who invented new moves from his core and imagination every day to fit the situation he was facing?

If you know you want to use a fact to make a point, you’re on the right track. How do you make the point? There are an infinity of ways, and you invent them. Mostly, as you go along.

You teach yourself to be a chef with no recipe book. Your book is DESIRE. The desire to overturn official reality. So OVERTURN IT. Don’t be shy.

Read what bad journalists write. See what they’re doing. I’m not just talking about lies. I’m talking about how they tell them. Drained of juice and color. These people should be pumping gas and collecting tumbleweed in Death Valley.

As a writer, fear is not your friend. You can tell the truth and never move the needle, because you’re timid. (If you’re irretrievably timid, you’ve already stopped reading this.)

Listen. There are millions and millions of readers out there who are unsure about what they’re supposed to do. They’re in strait jackets. They don’t know whether to shit or go blind. They read a line you write and they start to smile and then they stop.

They ask themselves, “Am I supposed to laugh? That line was pretty funny. But the subject he’s writing about is serious. I’m confused. He just took that fact and used it like a hammer and banged my head. If I laugh, am I committing some kind of code violation? Is a patrol car going to show up? Will I turn into a person my friends won’t understand? Suppose I miss the meaning of a joke and laugh in the wrong place? I’d look stupid.”

The solution here is: keep pounding away. Sooner or later, people are going to catch on to what you’re doing. And here’s the capper. They’ll find the buried place in themselves where they’re doing it, too.

That’s what you want. You want THEM to see THEY intend to upset apple carts, too. That intent has been trained out of them. By all sorts of people. Dead people who still manage to walk and talk.

It’s the deadness you want to overcome.

Facts are weapons you deploy to achieve that. You don’t want gray readers digesting facts you present as gray corpses…because in that case, nothing really happens.

Yes, I’ve read Hunter Thompson. I’ve read PJ O’Rourke. And Jonathan Swift and Lewis Carroll. And Thomas Paine, who was a journalist and an essayist and caller to action and a poet all at the same time. They knew how to use facts to their own advantage. You can learn from them, and then cook up your own dishes.

Beware of ideological humor. These are dud jokes the writers THINK are funny. They’re sadly mistaken. The jokes rely heavily on the prior ideology, and only rubes and yokels enjoy them. “Ha-ha, he [writer] proved God is wonderful.” No he didn’t. He wrote something lame, and God shook his head, swore, turned away, and went off to play 18 holes at George Carlin’s miniature golf course on the corner of Paradise and Cackle.

Suppose God Himself wants you to laugh your way out of a strait jacket? Suppose He knows how to turn the screw with any fact in the book? Suppose He can make a fact into a sword and wave it and drive you screaming into the night—where you recover your sanity.

Why can’t you as a writer do that, too?

Because He’s the Only One? You really think His ego is that large?

Doesn’t your experience tell you it’s the most isolated, indifferent, cold sons of bitches who have the biggest egos?


In Power Outside The Matrix, my Writer’s Tutorial — my instructions to writers, aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

In my tutorial, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

If you do opt for slavery, your writing is going to strike the ear in an artificial way. It won’t ring bells. It’ll clang. It’ll come across as trumped-up.

I aim to liberate writers, not pin them down.

Once you feel free and write free, you can shape your work in all sorts of different ways. If you start out trying to shape your work, you’ll stall and dead end.

You’re not aiming to be a trained monkey.

We already have far too many of those.

And let me say something about the craft of writing. You know where you pick that up? From reading other writers. It comes through to you by osmosis. It’s the way a child learns to speak. He listens to people speaking, and he grasps what’s happening.

It’s wholesale, not retail.

Faith, self-belief, and determination are wellsprings of a writer. And when faith falters, determination is the key. You’re going to write, no matter what, come hell or high water.

That works.

In Power Outside The Matrix, my goal is to transmit the electricity of being a writer. In all my discussions, I come back to that.

Because, you see, being a writer is a LIFE.

It’s not just a career. The career comes out of the life.

Far too many people in this world opt for a career and then try to make a life out of it. That’s normal. That’s standard. That’s a long street that narrows and turns into an alley that ends at a blank wall.

If I loaded you down with tips and tricks and rules, I’d be directing you to that alley. I’d never do that.

If you order Power Outside The Matrix, dive into it. My aim is bringing out the writer in you—bringing out the life of the writer, so you see it and see it as your own and nobody else’s.

Writers give us what we need.

And one more thing for now. Writers say to us, “You can sit there and pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can pretend you’re dumb, but I know something is getting through. And whatever that something is, it’s ESSENTIAL. It makes all the difference. It’s a glimpse of what you really want.”

Power Outside The Matrix: Why I want more writers in the world

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers.

I want more writers in the world—journalists, poets, novelists, playwrights—because they create narratives. New ones.

And this is important, because people, faced with what’s going on around them, have an incurable habit of listening to inner brain narratives of anxiety, impending trouble, and doom. Whether they know it not.

Writers outdistance and outflank that habit. A writer un-traps himself and his readers from that habit.

During my 75 years or so of reading, I’ve jumped into all sorts of writers. For a 10-year span, it was crime and spy fiction. Ian Fleming, John D MacDonald, James M Cain, Donald Hamilton, John Buchan, and finally and great and underappreciated Philip Atlee and his series of Joe Gall secret agent novels. I read and reread Atlee’s books. I learned so much about writing it was ridiculous. He was a great teacher without ever intending to be.

These books fortified me. They built wave after wave of new stories in my mind. New possibilities. New thoughts. New thoughts that spawned other thoughts. So…why bother with automatic narratives that groveled and crawled in the direction of gloom Fate? No need for that.

Writers liberate everybody.

Writing is abundance.

Automatic narratives in the mind are appointed bureaucrats of scarcity.

Science fiction—another decade or so of reading. Ray Bradbury, Heinlein, Philip Dick, AE Van Vogt, Norman Spinrad, and a host of nameless pulp authors who took me to other galaxies in the words of their opening paragraphs. BANG. You travel to those places, and when you come back, you’re refreshed. You’re emerging from a five star spa of mind and soul. You don’t need the old stories your brain is blabbering in its nursing home address on the edge of town.

There was a period in my teens and early 20s when I read the authors I was supposed to. Herman Hesse, Poe, DH Lawrence, Yeats, Dylan Thomas, Arthur Miller, Eric Hoffer, Henry Miller, Ayn Rand, William Burroughs. But “supposed to” dissolved. I was leaping into and out of all sorts of different kinds of fire. I KNEW all bets were off. ALL narratives were up for grabs. I could go ANYWHERE.

This is a good thing to know.

This is one of the best things to know.

Believing in freedom is one thing. Feeling free is quite another. Writing (doing it or reading it) gives you the feeling.

It gives you a platform on which to stand. A stage. A new stage.

In Power Outside The Matrix, my Writer’s Tutorial — my instructions to writers, aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

Power Outside The Matrix: For writers and people on the verge of being writers

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers.

I’ve been around the block 10,000 times. I’ve been writing for 67 years.

I know something about it.

I also know something about the people who want to write, who want to do it outside the mainstream.

They aren’t going to journalism school. They aren’t going to jump in that river and learn that system.

This is good, because there is no system—there are only artificial pretenses of systems.

The first point is: You’re going to put something on the page that you like to see, and readers are going to engage with. Something that pulls them out of what they ordinarily expect. Which shows you’re different. You’re not out to bore them to death. This is a major plus. For you and your readers.

“He’s not trying to put me to sleep. I’m on his side already.”

Clue: If you bore readers, you’re boring yourself. And that’s fatal.

In fact, one of the reasons a person becomes a writer is to “un-bore” himself. He wants to feel alive.

This is good. This is not a sin.

So put something on the page that makes you feel alive.

That’s the test. That’s ambition in the right direction.

These instructions aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

So in my tutorial, in my explanations of logic and evidence, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

If you do opt for slavery, your writing is going to strike the ear in an artificial way. It won’t ring bells. It’ll clang. It’ll come across as trumped-up.

In my mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, I aim to liberate writers, not pin them down.

Power Outside The Matrix: The Writer’s relentless pursuit

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers. I did my best to make it a rocket for writers.

I’m talking about real writers, not parrots.

And the relentless pursuit of something new. Always. Because what he’s already done becomes old. He knows that. He covers ground and that’s that. Then he moves on.

He can’t wait for millions of people to catch up. He’s not in that business. He’s not selling the same hot dogs over and over.

The shift to the new is not just about content and subject matter. It’s about how he expresses himself. How he writes. He can’t go on and on with the same way of writing forever.

He’s an explorer. After he’s made the journey to one unmapped country, he sails to another.

This is how he keeps himself going.

If you made a list of great writers and then read them, you’d notice each one wrote differently. They weren’t great because they all adhered to one style.

There is no one style.

There is no single universal mind with one set of rhythms and one way of expression. That’s a fantasy entertained by people who aren’t artists.

Every real artist is unique. He stands out from and against The One Unity, which is a philosophic fiction invented for the purpose of control.

Knowing this, the writer turns that apple cart upside down.

The One Unity is a metaphysical glazed donut.

It’s hypnotic. The writer breaks the trance and the spell.

When he does, people who are under the spell say, “I don’t understand what he’s doing.” But somewhere down deep, they do understand. An explosion has detonated and it’s working its way to the surface.

We’re in an extreme technological age, which has its own hypnotic spells. The dome heads of technology are floating along on a platform that is supported by pillars they believe are firm and powerful. They’re wrong. The pillars are already cracking. The whole edifice is tilting. Because so much of the technology and the language surrounding it are dead.

Real writing exposes the lie of that language. It cuts it to ribbons.

The writer relentlessly pursues what hasn’t been done before, by and with his imagination.

He finds his way by inventing the way.

My instructions to writers in my Power Outside The Matrix collection aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

In my tutorial, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

Power Outside The Matrix: The Guts of a Writer

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers. I did my best to make it a rocket for writers.

A writer can invoke all sorts of reasons to stop writing. He can choose from thousands of excuses.

But I want to focus on the type of excuse that comes from evidence. For example, over a period of years, the writer has accumulated information that leads him to believe the human race is doomed and nothing can be done to change that.

Therefore, why write?

Why? Because there is a higher priority. YOU FIGHT, NO MATTER WHAT.

Once you digest THAT, you’re back in business.

And of course, there is counter-evidence, too, because the war for freedom that has been going on since people lived in caves is never over. We’re talking about the long and true view. 10,000, 20,000 years into the future.

I’ve known writers who gave up because they turned into dyed in the wool cynics. They gave away everything. They submitted to “an objective assessment of humanity.”

But writing isn’t objective. It never was.

It can use facts, but that’s just the beginning of what it is.

Writing is ultimately about writers.

When is commitment really a commitment? When it carries the day, come hell or high water.

If a writer has that, everything else falls into place. If he doesn’t have that, nothing works. It falls apart.

I’ve been writing for 67 years. On perhaps half of all those days, I paused—TEMPORARILY. I had nothing in mind—FOR THE MOMENT. But I knew that an idea, a thought, a phrase would come to me, and then I’d be off and running again.

And it did, and I was, usually in a matter of hours.

Because I wanted to write. Because I was committed.

You keep going long enough, for enough years, and your energy expands. It doesn’t fade away. You can do more, not less.

You SEE that problems, troubles, and excuses are NOTHING compared to your commitment and desire. It’s no contest.

No writer thinks reality is just fine as it is. He’s always reaching for more. He’s always overturning reality.

And there is much to overturn, at many levels. There is no lack of material to work with.

Society at large is always holding out its hand and making promises involving: surrender, giving in; allied with perks, freebies, groups to join, causes to uphold, victim plot lines to embroider. All of THAT is sensational material a writer can work with. As long as he doesn’t take the bait himself.

“Should I sit down and write 5000 words or eat the cotton-candy of the State?”

“Should I remain an individual or disappear into a group?”

The voice of a writer has clear answers. It engraves those answers for public consumption.

It announces that something the State can never touch will never die.

My instructions to writers in my Power Outside The Matrix collection aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

In my tutorial, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

If you do opt for slavery, your writing is going to strike the ear in an artificial way. It won’t ring bells. It’ll clang. It’ll come across as trumped-up.

I aim to liberate writers, not pin them down.

Once you feel free and write free, you can shape your work in all sorts of different ways. If you start out trying to shape your work, you’ll stall and dead end.

You’re not aiming to be a trained monkey.

We already have far too many of those.

And let me say something about the craft of writing. You know where you pick that up? From reading other writers. It comes through to you by osmosis. It’s the way a child learns to speak. He listens to people speaking, and he grasps what’s happening.

Because, you see, being a writer is a LIFE.

It’s not just a career. The career comes out of the life.

Far too many people in this world opt for a career and then try to make a life out of it. That’s normal. That’s standard. That’s a long street that narrows and turns into an alley that ends at a blank wall.

If I loaded you down with tips and tricks and rules, I’d be directing you to that alley. I’d never do that.

And whatever that something is, it’s ESSENTIAL. It makes all the difference. It’s a glimpse of what you really want.”

power outside the matrix


Here are the contents of Power Outside The Matrix:

These are audio presentations. 55 total hours.

* Writer’s Tutorial (8.5-hours)

* Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation (11.5-hours)

* Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality (6.5-hours)

Then you will receive the following audio presentations I have previously done:

* The Third Philosophy of Imagination (1-hour)

* The Infinite Imagination (3-hours)

* The Mass Projection of Events (1.5-hours)

* The Decentralization of Power (1.5-hours)

* Creating the Future (6-hours)

* Pictures of Reality (6-hours)

* The Real History of America (2-hours)

* Corporations: The New Gods (7.5-hours)

I have included an additional bonus section:

* The complete text (331 pages) of AIDS INC., the book that exposed a conspiracy of scientific fraud deep within the medical research establishment. The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst (and how to analyze them). I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

* A 2-hour radio interview I did on AIDS in Dec 1987 with host Roy Tuckman on KPFK in Los Angeles, California.

* My book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies

(All the audio presentations are mp3 files and the books are pdf files. You download the files upon purchase. You’ll receive an email with a link to the entire collection.)

This is about your power. Not as an abstract idea, but as a living core of your being. This is about accessing that power and using it to invent realities without end.

That’s what Power Outside The Matrix is all about.

Power Outside The Matrix: Journalism that blows the Big Vault open

by Jon Rappoport

To order my mega-collection Power Outside The Matrix, click here.

Yes, I believe my collection, Power Outside The Matrix can help people who want to become writers or much better writers. I did my best to make it a rocket for writers.

There comes a moment for a relentless reporter who goes down a rabbit hole long enough…

He finds something so explosive it would turn the world on its head.

I’m not talking about a mere riveting scandal or a parochial crime.

I’m talking about something far deeper and far more corrosive to WIDELY accepted reality.

What to do?

This is when the imperative to ATTACK becomes absolutely necessary.

And the big clue is this: attack along multiple vectors, and keep it up.

You can’t go half-way. If you do, the story and the truth will be wiped out, or a lesser version of it will be shoved out front for public consumption—the limited hangout.

If you go half-way, there’s a chance YOU’LL go down with the story.

Either walk away or go all the way.

“But I wrote about it and nothing happened.”

So what? Write about it 16 times. 50 times. Don’t stop. If you don’t see the explosion you’re hoping for, know the truth you’re telling is crawling its way into minds. It’s eating its way in. Other writers are thinking about it, walking around it, picking up on pieces of it and publishing.

You’re a fighter, you’re in the ring, and this will go on for 100 rounds. Or more. Unless you throw in the towel and quit, sitting on your stool in the corner.

This is more than you thought it was. Absolutely. That’s when the thing called DESIRE comes up.

What are you in this for?

Do you want to singe the shutters on the windows, or do you want to burn the whole house down?

The degree of the quickening of your blood and your brain will give you the answer.

And there’s another factor, too. Do you ENJOY overturning Reality itself on a grand scale?

If so, you’re in the right place.

Turn the screws. Don’t just report the astounding facts. Draw up the implications and launch them. Describe all the ripples. Leave no doubt as to how much Reality has just been destroyed.

These implications will come to you as you’re writing. If you’re ready for them. If you’re sniffing for the big, bigger, and biggest picture.

You’d better be.

You can’t just be a person with his nose to the wheel. You can’t just record the turning and breaking of the gears. You have to come to see what all this MEANS, and you have to blow the meaning(s) up into one vivid photograph after another for the reader.

Don’t leave it to chance.

This is where you separate yourself from the pack. Because although other writers will agree with you over time, many of them or most of them don’t want to come to grips with the IMPLICATIONS the facts are exposing. They want to build walls around the facts and put facts under microscopes. They want to confine the story. You want to blow it open.

You got into the vault. You led other people there. Now they want to pull out a dozen choice safety deposit boxes and see what’s in them, and they want to count the total amount of cash sitting in bags. You want to pull out every goddamn deposit box and examine the contents. You want to make sure you understand where all that cash came from.

And as you’re seeing, in the wreckage of the vault, the truth of it all swimming into view in successive waves, you’re writing and publishing, and as you realize one fantastic implication after another, you’re laying out each one in its full glowing form.

Voila, you’re a reporter.

And no one has to tell you, you have to be a WRITER, too. You see that. You know that. In order to tell the whole story, it’s imperative.

So you ARE a writer. You keep pushing out one piece after another, and you’re up to the task. You find the words. Words come to you.

As you write and read what you’re writing, you’re catapulting yourself higher and you’re drilling yourself deeper into the new world you’re shaping—from the facts.

And there you are, and there it is.

In Power Outside The Matrix, my Writer’s Tutorial — my instructions to writers, aren’t a cage you climb into.

Don’t think about writing as a cage.

You’re outside, not inside.

That should be why you’re a writer.

In my tutorial, I’m not laying down hard and fast rules. I’m not asking for obedience. I give you tools, but you decide how to use them. And you never become a slave to your tools.

If you do opt for slavery, your writing is going to strike the ear in an artificial way. It won’t ring bells. It’ll clang. It’ll come across as trumped-up.

I aim to liberate writers, not pin them down.

Once you feel free and write free, you can shape your work in all sorts of different ways. If you start out trying to shape your work, you’ll stall and dead end.

You’re not aiming to be a trained monkey.

We already have far too many of those.

And let me say something about the craft of writing. You know where you pick that up? From reading other writers. It comes through to you by osmosis. It’s the way a child learns to speak. He listens to people speaking, and he grasps what’s happening.

It’s wholesale, not retail.

Faith, self-belief, and determination are wellsprings of a writer. And when faith falters, determination is the key. You’re going to write, no matter what, come hell or high water.

That works.

In Power Outside The Matrix, my goal is to transmit the electricity of being a writer. In all my discussions, I come back to that.

Because, you see, being a writer is a LIFE.

It’s not just a career. The career comes out of the life.

Far too many people in this world opt for a career and then try to make a life out of it. That’s normal. That’s standard. That’s a long street that narrows and turns into an alley that ends at a blank wall.

If I loaded you down with tips and tricks and rules, I’d be directing you to that alley. I’d never do that.

If you order Power Outside The Matrix, dive into it. My aim is bringing out the writer in you—bringing out the life of the writer, so you see it and see it as your own and nobody else’s.

Writers give us what we need.

And one more thing for now. Writers say to us, “You can sit there and pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can pretend you’re dumb, but I know something is getting through. And whatever that something is, it’s ESSENTIAL. It makes all the difference. It’s a glimpse of what you really want.”
