Was the Philadelphia Experiment the Opening of Pandora’s Box?

Long ago, in the distant 1943 a ship named “USS Eldridge” was about to be tested by The US Navy.

Great minds like Albert Einstein had part in the experiment which included his Unified Field Theory (this theory is uniting the fields of electromagnetism and gravity into one field, in other words if light were bent, then space-time would be bent, effectively creating an invisible time machine).

Everything was set for the test, the crew was on the boat, 2 massive Tesla Coils run through the ship, a couple of magnetic generators were installed and everything seemed normal, well as normal as it gets for crazy scientists. But then, everything went… well, let’s just say bizarre.

I’ll get back to the insanity but let me first explain what the test was about. The US Navy wanted to create a special boat that had magnetic invisibility, radar invisibility, optical invisibility, pretty much every invisibility there is.
 There was a theory Nikola Tesla finished in 1943 shortly before he died and the theory was some kind of a “Unified Field Theory”. With this theory it was possible to use a large Tesla Coil and make things disappear creating an exact replica that comes into being a short distance away (The movie “The Prestige” makes a reference of this).


This was unknown and kept in secret by every member of the experiment until Morris K. Jessup, an astronomer and former graduate-level researcher, published The Case for the UFO.

If you think this book reviled the secrets of the Philadelphia experiment, then you are wrong. This book had not a single thing about the experiment or its secrets. So what part did this book played?

It was a man, a mystery man calling himself “Carlos Allende” who saw the book and decided that Morris K. Jessup was a man who could understand him, someone who would listen to what he has to say without picturing him in a straitjacket.

So, Carlos contacted our guy Morris by writing him a good old fashioned letter. In the letter he described the horror that really happened in the “Philadelphia Experiment” and explained that he saw everything from the “SS Andrew Furuseth”, a nearby merchant ship where he was serving at the time.

According to Allende, Einstein had developed the Unified Field Theory, but had suppressed it, since mankind was not ready for it, a confession that the scientist shared with the mathematician, philosopher and his dear friend Bertrand Russell.

When Morris tried to contact Mister Carlos the reply arrived a couple of months later by correspondent identifying himself as “Carl M. Allen”. Because of safety measures Morris terminated communication with this new “Carl” guy.

That was how the truth about “The Philadelphia Experiment” came out from the “closet”, but what really happened on that ship. The thing I am going to describe is beyond the wildest imagination. It is crazy, I mean “Fringe” meeting “The Outer Limits” crazy.

As I said everything was ready and normal and then the scientists pushed the button starting the generators and transferring electric energy through the Tesla Coils that run through the ship. As the electromagnetic field increased in strength, it began to extend as far as 100 yards out from the ship in all directions, forming a large sphere and making the ship fuzzy. Greenish fog started to surround the ship.

No screams were heard by the crew on the ship. Suddenly the ship vanished, not just from the view, but from Philadelphia all together. To make things even stranger, the ship appeared several hundred miles at Norfolk, Virginia, staying there for couple of minutes and then reappearing in Philadelphia again.

The ship was “un-synced” from This Universe which is why it was able to travel from Philly to Virginia and back instantly but that was not the horror “Carlos” described. Some members of the crew were disoriented; others were “basket cases”.

Strangely a couple of the members were missing – “Just like They Have Been Erased From Time Itself”. However, the most disturbing view was seeing some of the crew members embedded in the bulkheads, decks and railings of the ship. They were alive and literally a part of the ship.

A lot of them were killed instantly, some were taken for experimenting, and others were taken and locked into asylums. Some survivors, who were alive and as fine as you can be after such trauma, reported blacking out from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours.

Rumors have been heard that some men entered into what was called the “Freeze”. This is where men faded from view, unable to move, speak or otherwise affect their surroundings. Interestingly enough, invisible crewmen were still visible to other sailors who had survived the original experiment.

After a while, the Freeze effect lasted for days or months, and became known as the “Deep Freeze” driving crewmen crazy. The only way men were able to recover from the “Deep Freeze” was by other crewmen performing a “Laying on of Hands” technique. Unfortunately, two men burst into flames while Laying on of Hands, burning for 18 days despite all attempts to quench the fire. [1]

I know, this sounds like somebody had a little too much free time and a wild imagination but this is strange even for the wildest imagination and exactly that fact proves that this might be true. Even if all of this is 90% false and just a fantasy story, that 10% is still frightening.

And think about this, if 50 years ago people were experimenting with Time Travel, Unified Field Theory, and Teleportation, what are they experimenting with today. Even though, this sounds bizarre and sci-fi it is all theoretically possible and this experiment was just the beginning of human manipulation with electromagnetic fields.

After “The Philadelphia Experiment” ended, “The Phoenix Project” started culminating with “The Montauk Project” in 1980s at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station on Montauk, Long Island for the purpose of developing psychological warfare techniques and exotic research including time travel.

According to astrophysicist and UFO researcher Jacques Vallée, the Montauk Experiment stories seem to have originated with the account of Preston Nichols, who claimed to have recovered repressed memories of his own involvement. [2]

Many believe in the story of “Carlos Allende” and many see it as a plot to a sci-fi movie. Be that as it may, “The Philadelphia Experiment” showed just how powerful electromagnetic manipulation can be and maybe it even created the anomaly of “The Bermuda Triangle”.

It was for sure an opening of Pandora’s Box in terms of science and as much as we want to know what really happened we can never be 100% sure. All that we can is believe in what we find to be mostly true and fill up the blanks with our imagination.

Pineal Gland – Third Eye – The Fascinating Nature of Your Inner Vision

 

 

To this day, scientists from around the globe, specialized in studying the anatomy of the human body, have made dwarfish success in demystifying the secrets of the pineal gland, not to mention the denyal of the process of calcification, which everyone should be informed about.

What we know for a fact is that the pineal gland is the size of a raisin and that it’s located right between our eyebrows, directly in the middle of our cranium.

For many scientists, the pineal gland is the master gland of all endocrine glands located in the human body.

Interestingly, when you look at the pineal gland, you can’t help but notice how strikingly similar its form is to a pinecone.

When the great French philosopher Rene Descartes was posed by the existing relationship between consciousness and body, after a thorough study, he concluded that the pineal gland is the so-called “seat of the soul”.

Descartes believed that this tiny, pinecone-shaped organ provided the opportunity for consciousness to influence the body as a living structure.

For Descartes, this organ was the source of power that transforms a living organism into a conscious being, able to think for itself.

Pineal Gland – Third Eye : An Atrophied Eye

Since the dawn of time, man uses the concept of the eye as a symbol of consciousness, of internal awareness.

We assume that the pineal gland could be a real eye because of its remarkably similar structure to the human eyeballs.

We’re inclined to think that it’s an eye that retired into the brain. And that the brain has closed around it and the skull has closed over it.

There is a supposition that if this was prehistoric eye belonging to some actually ancient and remote period, and having no further use for man, because his other eyes are excellent and efficient, that this gland will atrophy.

However, that is not the case. And this gland still remains in some unexplainable for us way perfectly healthy down through ages.

This is confirmed by an interesting experiment conducted last century, multiple times, with fish left for in a cave where there is some kind of a lake, and after a few generations, these fish are all blind because of the lack of a source of light.

However, this eye in the brain doesn’t seem to deteriorate.

What is The Purpose of The Pineal Gland?

It’s possible that the function the pineal gland carries is to provide us with insight. Or to see something not otherwise visible, to see inward rather than outward things.

Alan Watts gives an excellent primer to support this claim:

“When a man listens to what you say and he says: “I see what you mean.” He isn’t looking at anything, it’s insight he is trying to tell you. That he has become aware.”

Another widely popular belief in our community today is that this gland is the secret of our sleep dream phenomena. And that it’s this gland that makes the dream remembered or forgotten when we awaken.

In the human brain, we can find a small body called the pituitary body or pituitary gland. One of the simplest things we can liken it to is the thoughts of an old alchemist:

“It looks very much like a bottle. It has an anterior and posterior pot and secretes a material which is called petaitrant.”

What Are The Gifts of The Third Eye?

In India, a tradition exists to place an extra eye on the forehead to indicate a power of superior sight.

The third eye corresponds to the sixth chakra (Ajna chakra) in the human body.

They teach us that we have no more than 5 senses. A pair of physical eyes and ears and that’s it. But the third eye has more to say about that.

The third eye gives you an expanded consciousness or altered perception of reality. Meaning you can see things that you wouldn’t necessarily see, hear things you wouldn’t possibly hear. It enables you to grasp the fact that there is more beyond the material world.

The third eye isn’t a real eye that appears on your forehead. It’s a metaphor of discerning truth from lies. And accessing the third eye provides you an opportunity to see the world beyond your line of sight.

This means that you acquire the ability to see fascinating things – auras, spirits of people, animals, and trees. You start to pick up information (visual, auditory, sensory) unattainable when you limit your mind to the boundaries of the physical realm.

The third eye can awaken man’s vestigial intuitive gifts such as clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, clairsentience and much more. It all depends on the stage of spiritual development of a person.

Keep Your Connection With Your Pineal Gland – Third Eye Alive

When babies come into this world (like nowadays highly gifted indigo, crystal and rainbow children) they are exceptionally psychic and sensitive at first, conserving a strong bond with the spiritual realm.

But as time goes by, many shut down these abilities, losing the rewarding connection with the spiritual world. The main reason for this is particularly because of improper school education or of a trauma in their childhood years.

In conclusion, the third eye and the pineal gland are essentially one and the same thing, when referring to awakening forgotten psychic abilities, seeing into the spirit dimension or experiencing higher levels of consciousness.

Aftershocks Of Iran’s 1953 Coup Still Felt Around The World, 65 Years Later

 

9AEF0FA0-3C56-4AC1-A3A9-327C9854172E_w650_r1_s

Sixty five years ago, Iranian military officers backed by U.S. and British intelligence agencies initiated a coup d’etat whose aftershocks can still be felt around the globe.

The coup toppled Iran’s first democratically elected government and its popular prime minister, Mohammad Mossadegh, and is widely credited with fueling the hostility against the West that culminated decades later with the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

But the events that played out over a five-day period from August 15-19 reverberated far beyond Iran’s borders. The coup altered the geopolitical landscape in the Middle East, became a blueprint for a succession of covert U.S. efforts to foster coups and destabilize governments in the ’50s, and provided the Soviet Union with ideological ammunition during the Cold War.

The theory, disputed by some, was that the CIA and Britain’s MI6 masterminded the coup to maintain control over Iranian oil and to prevent Tehran from falling under Soviet influence after World War II.

Mossadegh played a prominent role in Iran’s 1951 move to nationalize its oil industry, which had long been controlled by Britain. The decision led to a worldwide boycott of Iranian oil intended to rein in Mossadegh’s government, but when that failed a secret plan was devised to oust him.

The replacement of Mossadegh with a handpicked prime minister, General Fazlollah Zahedi, opened the way for Iran’s relatively weak shah to gain nearly absolute power within Iran’s constitutional monarchy.

With strong military and economic backing from Washington, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi would take on the role of autocrat until the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

As for Mossadegh himself, he was arrested and convicted of treason, along with scores of government officials, after the coup. He served three years in jail before living under house arrest until his death in 1967.

Lingering Coup

Stephen Kinzer, the author of “All The Shah’s Men: An American Coup And The Roots of Middle East Terror,” sees the coup as a short-term victory for Washington. But in the long-term, he says, Washington’s intervention in Iran would prove detrimental to its standing in Iran.

Mossadegh was named "Time" magazine's Person of the Year in 1953.

Mossadegh was named “Time” magazine’s Person of the Year in 1953.

“From the perspective of history, the coup was not successful for the United States,” Kinzer says. “The 1979 revolution was a long-term effect of the increasing repression from the shah, who came to power as a result of the coup. That Islamic Revolution brought to power a fanatically anti-American regime that has spent more than 30 years working to undermine American interests all over the world.”

Sixty years on, the coup continues to loom large in Iran’s national psyche and remains a thorn in the country’s relations with the West.

Mark Gasiorowski, author of “Mohammad Mosaddeq And The 1953 Coup In Iran,” says the removal of Mossadegh paved the way for two political trends — radical Islamists led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and radical leftists in the form of the militant Mujahedin-e Khalq — to gain ground in the decades after the coup.

“What the coup did was to take out the moderate, secular, element of Iranian politics and enabled radical Islamists and radical leftists to emerge as key opposition factions in place of it [in the 1960s and ’70s],” Gasiorowski says. “The coup had this big impact of essentially eliminating this pro-democracy faction and that had a very important impact on Iranian politics in the intervening years.”

Regional Repurcussions

Gasiorowksi, a professor of political science at Tulane University in New Orleans, says that to many in Iran the coup proved Washington’s duplicity. The United States, which portrayed itself as the guardian of freedom, was seen as resorting to nefarious means to get rid of a democratically elected government to suit its own strategic interests.

Gasiorowski says the ’53 coup had major regional repercussions as well. He says Iran became a key part of the U.S. strategy of containing the Soviet Union in the region, thereby further underpinning the Middle East as a key battleground of the Cold War.

Had the Iran operation not succeeded, the idea of covert operations that became such an integral part of American foreign policy during the 1950s and beyond might not have seemed so appealing.
Author Stephen Kinzer

“The coup really reinforced the Cold War polarization of the region,” he says. “Of course, that’s the reason the United States did it. They did because they were afraid of communist influence in Iran, and they wanted to make Iran, along with Turkey and Pakistan, into a battleship to oppose the Soviet Union.”

In response, the Soviet Union escalated its own activities in the region, providing aid and arms to governments in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and a host of other states in the Middle East and North Africa.

Kinzer, an award-winning journalist who teaches at Boston University, says the Iranian coup was a milestone for the upstart CIA, which was established in 1947. He says the 1953 coup, which was the agency’s first major successful overthrow of a foreign government, became a template for the future.

“Had the Iran operation not succeeded, the idea of covert operations that became such an integral part of American foreign policy during the 1950s and beyond might not have seemed so appealing,” he says.

Following the 1953 coup in Iran, the CIA orchestrated the successful Guatemalan coup one year later, failed to oust Syria’s president in 1957; and suffered a black eye backing the unsuccessful military invasion of Cuba in 1961.

For decades, the United States denied playing any part in the Iranian coup. But that position ended in 2009 when President Barack Obama acknowledged Washington’s role.

In Britain, meanwhile, the government-funded BBC provided details in 2011 of how it broadcast anti-Mossadegh programs to undermine his government.

Secret files and memoirs of CIA operatives show that the CIA played a pivotal role in initiating and planning Operation Ajax, as the covert operation to oust Mossadegh was called.

The 6 Cartels that Rule America and the World

 

 

Americans have been programmed to fight amongst themselves along partisan political lines, always pointing the finger at the other side of the phony left-right paradigm.

Divide and conquer is the broad tactic being used to keep people from recognizing, focusing on, and targeting the truly diabolical agents in our world who hold real power over all of us at once.

We are not ruled by Republicans or Democrats, but rather by the not-so-hidden hands of institutions which have consolidated a tremendous amount of power.

Our world is deeply colored by these cartels, and they impact every area of our lives, constantly maneuvering to make more and more dependent on them for our needs.

In short, these are the organizations which rule over us. These are the great forces in our world which prevent positive change and ensure that we continually slide downward into tyranny and self-destruction.

1. The International Banking Cartel

The geopolitical financial elite have for centuries been organizing to consolidate the mechanisms of wealth into the hands of a very few. The Rothschilds are the popular face of this cartel, but the banking and financial corruption goes far, far beyond their influence.

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested from its profits or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class.” — Rothschild Brothers of London, 1863

Banks are in a unique position of power in our world, and can generate extraordinary profits without actually producing anything.

Through the issuance of currency and credit, they can control the amount of money available to the economy and create economic booms and busts, seizing titles to land, homes, businesses, and property.

They hold extraordinary influence over government for their role as financiers of everything from public works to war, and enjoy extraordinary pecuniary advantage and privilege.

Combine this with the new influence of supra-national organizations like the Bank of International Settlements and the World Bank, and you realize that the world is on the cusp of falling into the greatest trap of all time.

The banking cartel is the primary source of war, destabilization and military grade destruction in our world today.

2. The Medical Establishment

Human health has been hijacked by the medical establishment which forces people into an extraordinarily expensive program of dependence on insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and other health services providers.

Interestingly, the medical industry is also a major cause of premature death for Americans as malpractice, drug overdoses, botched procedures and poor patient care contribute to these statistics. Medical errors alone are the third leading cause of death in the U.S.

Additionally, the government deliberately serves these corporate interests by limiting and preventing information and access to services and healing modalities which may produce positive results without dependence on hospitals and physicians.

Furthermore, this cartel actually contributes knowingly to human misery by pumping deadly drugs like opioids in our world, scheming to get as many people as addicted as possible in order to cut a greater profit.

3. The Energy Industry

The raping of the planet for fossil fuel energy is something that has been going on for decades, but is finally now beginning to create substantial blowback as environmental destruction is proving to be something that cannot be ignored any longer.

The nuclear industry is perfectly content to continue the pursuit of nuclear power even in the face of catastrophes like Fukushima which demonstrate that nuclear energy simply cannot be contained and is a threat to all life on planet earth.

We are witnessing major growth in the sectors of renewable energy, but the traditional energy industry has a long history of interfering with the release of alternative technologies, even going so far as to actively suppress technologies.

This cartel has shaped our world in dramatic ways, most notably by creating near universal dependence on the automobile as the primary form of transportation, which has shaped both our cities and our mindsets.

The never-ending push for oil exploration is killing the most precious environmental resources we have left, but the influence of the energy cartel is so great that it can practically buy entire nations, such as Ecuador, where foreign oil ventures are allowed to press ever further into the Amazon.

4. Agricultural Chemical Producers

The industrial agro chemical giants have completely changed the face of farming on planet earth within the last 75 years or so.

Family farms continue to go under at a record-setting pace, and it is clear that the endgame of companies like Monsanto is to own the patents to all food seed, lording over a planet where people are prosecuted for planting food crops.

This is quite startling, and when couple with the fact that seed biodiversity is collapsing around us, it may only be another ten years before this endgame is realized.

In addition to seed, these companies are polluting the world in incredible ways by pressing for the overuse of toxic chemicals like glyphosate and other herbicides which are killing pollinator insects, destroying the soil and causing horrible health problems for people living near farms.

5. The Information Industrial Complex

This institution is the newest in our world, consisting of what is now commonly referred to as ‘Big Data,’ meaning the corporations and government agencies which collect data points on everything in our world and use this information strategically for their interests.

James Corbett of the Corbett Report remarks:

“Half a century ago, outgoing President Dwight D. Eisenhower coined the term “military-industrial complex” to describe the fascistic collusion between the Pentagon and America’s burgeoning armaments industry.

“But in our day and age we are witnessing the rise of a new collusion, one between the Pentagon and the tech industry that it helped to seed, that is committed to waging a covert war against people the world over. Now, in the 21st century, it is time to give this new threat a name: the information-industrial complex.”

Corbett’s recent video explains the rise of this all powerful institution in the following presentation.

6. Religion

Religion is important for American politics because religion is important for Americans.1 Yet, there are factors in American political life that amplify the role of religion in a way that is not seen in other developed countries.

For a developed country, the U.S. is extraordinarily high on religion. Thus 65 percent of Americans say that religion is important in their daily lives compared to just 17 percent of Swedes, 19 percent of Danes, and 24 percent of Japanese.2

Why America is more religious than Europe
There are several likely reasons why Americans say that they are so much more religious than Europeans. One may be that they exaggerate their own religiosity in the same way that they claim about twice the attendance rates relative to people actually showing up in church.1

There is also a large immigrant population, many of whom hail from countries that are poor and comparatively religious. Immigrant groups that happen to be linguistically isolated may remain quite religious even if the broader society becomes increasingly secular.1

Life is more difficult in the U.S. than in Europe by several measures even though Europe is currently in an economic decline.3 Problems here range from health problems and lower life expectancy, to higher crime rates, and relative lack of involvement in the community.4 All of these problems are bound up with inequality – with a chasm between the living conditions of rich and poor.4 This gap has widened in recent decades and reveals holes in social safety nets relative to Europe.5

So Americans feel far less secure economically, and in relation to their health and well-being than the overall wealth of the country in terms of GDP per capita would predict.4 This existential insecurity provides a fertile ground for religion.1

Historians are fond of attributing American religiosity to historical factors such as the Puritan founders. Yet history counts for little in these matters given that virtually every country has a devout past — specifically the currently secular countries of Europe.

Why religion is emphasized in American politics
Religion influences American politics to a degree not seen in other developed countries. Despite the constitutional firewall between church and state, national politicians hardly ever give a major speech without invoking religion.

The president is forever asking God to bless America, sending his prayers to victims of disasters, hosting religious leaders, and extolling religious values. Such advocacy of religion is unheard of in Europe but that may be because the majority is no longer religious and because voting members of the native population (as distinct from immigrants) are not very devout.

In America, religion is much more a part of public life whatever the constitution says. There are various reasons for this. One is that evangelical Christians under the banner of the Moral Majority made a determined push to influence political leaders since the 1970s and to inject religion into political debates. This broad agenda animates contemporary right-wing media including talk radio personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and TV channels such as Fox News.

The religious propensities of immigrants mean that they are receptive to the conservative religious message and can be induced to vote across class lines. In doing so they support an agenda that favors the wealthy and makes them even poorer.

Given this threat from the religious right, Democrats feel pressure to emphasize their own religious credentials, or risk losing a chunk of the poorer immigrant population who make up their natural constituency.

So religion is embroiled in American political life and that magnifies the apparent significance of religion in people’s everyday lives. According to wits, U.S. conservatives went to war in Afghanistan to separate religion from politics abroad while striving to unite religion and politics at home.

American politicians talk a lot about religion. Yet, they have no more in common with theocrats like the Taliban than ordinary Americans have with the religious fervor of ordinary Afghanis.

Many poor people in America undermine their economic interests by voting for Republican politicians who are interested in further concentrating wealth in the hands of the affluent. They do so, in part, because the Republicans appeal to their religious propensity.

That religious propensity is strengthened by increasing insecurity in the lives of the poor because difficult living conditions are associated with increased religiosity.1 So the worse their living conditions become, the more likely they are to follow a self-defeating voting pattern. That seems like another great reason for really separating church and state.
Final Thoughts

There are very few, if any, honest politicians or organizations working in earnest to spread the benefit of industry, technology and prosperity in such a way that actually eliminates the great problems humanity faces such as hunger, environmental stewardship, health freedom, and more.

These are the cartels which represent the greatest threats to our collective well-being and the prosperity of future generations.

Unique Ancient Map Depicting The Earth As Seen From Space Restored Digitally

 

 

AncientPages.com – In 1587, Urbano Monte (1544-1613) a little-known cartographer created an amazing, hand-drawn, 10 feet by 10 feet map.

Not only does the map depict the Earth as seen from space, when directly looking down at the North Pole, but it’s also filled with incredible images of foreign locations and astonishing mythological creatures such as for example Siberian unicorns, ship-attacking mermen and terrifying giant birds.

Amazing mythological creatures have always fascinated people and now we have a chance to view them through the eyes of our ancestors.

This unique world atlas has now been restored and digitally stitched together. Cartographer Monte who was very interested in geography was from a wealthy family in Milan, Italy.

In 1585, he met with a Japanese delegation and scientists think the map he created is the result of his meeting and stories he heard about Japan. The world atlas contains numerous names within Japan, which don’t appear on other Western maps created at the time.

Mercator’s great contribution to cartography is that he changed its nature with the help of his artistic enhancements and forever altered ocean navigation with his projection method, which was the most influential invention of early cartography.

Monte on the other hand wanted to show the circular nature of the Earth. According to Rumsey, Monte’s work is much more than just a map. “It’s a whole scientific instrument.

Former Facebook Exec: ‘You Don’t Realize It But You Are Being Programmed’

This is the year everyone—including founding executives—began publicly questioning the impact of social media on our lives.

Last month, Facebook’s first president Sean Parker opened up about his regrets over helping create social media as we know it today. “I don’t know if I really understood the consequences of what I was saying, because of the unintended consequences of a network when it grows to a billion or 2 billion people and it literally changes your relationship with society, with each other,” Parker said. “God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains.”

Chamath Palihapitiya, former vice president of user growth, also recently expressed his concerns. During a recent public discussion at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Palihapitiya—who worked at Facebook from 2005 to 2011—told the audience, “I think we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.”

Some of his comments seem to echo Parker’s concern [emphasis ours]. Parker has said that social media creates “a social-validation feedback loop” by giving people “a little dopamine hit every once in a while, because someone liked or commented on a photo or a post or whatever.”

Just days after Parker made those comments, Palihapitiya told the Stanford audience, “The short-term, dopamine-driven feedback loops we’ve created are destroying how society works,” Palihapitiya said. “No civil discourse, no cooperation; misinformation, mistruth. And it’s not an American problem—this is not about Russians ads. This is a global problem.”

It’s as if Parker and Palihapitiya got together at a bar that week to work out their inner demons. When the host asked Palihapitiya if he was doing any soul searching in regards to his role in building Facebook, he responded: “I feel tremendous guilt. I think we all knew in the back of our minds—even though we feigned this whole line of, like, there probably aren’t any bad unintended consequences. I think in the back, deep, deep recesses of, we kind of knew something bad could happen. But I think the way we defined it was not like this.”

He went on to explain what “this” is:

So we are in a really bad state of affairs right now, in my opinion. It is eroding the core foundation of how people behave by and between each other. And I don’t have a good solution. My solution is I just don’t use these tools anymore. I haven’t for years.

Speaking more broadly on the subject of social media, Palihapitiya said he doesn’t use social media because he “innately didn’t want to get programmed.” As for his kids: “They’re not allowed to use this shit.”

Then he got even more fired up: “Your behaviors—you don’t realize it but you are being programmed. It was unintentional, but now you gotta decide how much you are willing to give up, how much of your intellectual independence,” he told the students in the crowd. “And don’t think, ‘Oh yeah, not me, I’m fucking genius, I’m at Stanford.’ You’re probably the most likely to fucking fall for it. ‘Cause you are fucking check-boxing your whole Goddamn life.”

5 Traps Used to Shut Down and Limit Human Consciousness

 

The human condition at present is one of slavery, a new kind of slavery, where bondage is psychological and spiritual rather than physical.

Human consciousness is the target in a broad war of control where people willingly acquiesce to social conditions which clearly fail to serve their best interests, even doing them harm.

We accept the status quo of warfare, fear, environmental destruction, greed, corruption, poisoned health and false scarcity because we’ve been herded into traps which hold us hostage with false beliefs and the appearance of comfort.

In reality, though, breaking through these traps would allow us to apply the principles of peace, sustainability, exploration, acceptance and progress to improving the human condition.

Firstly, though, we have to see and acknowledge the boundaries of the prison we are in.

“There’s five essential boxes for human consciousness, there’s five things that shut human consciousness down. Five models that attempt to keep people rigidly inside of their walls. And if you’re inside these boxes, you’re not going to expand your awareness to understand the actual truth of what’s going on in our world.” ~ Mark Passio

1. Politics

“If anybody identifies with left or right, conservative Republican, liberal Democrat, etc…” ~ Mark Passio

The self-identification with a particular political party is one of the most divisive states of consciousness there is in our world today.

This is clearly evident in the quality and character of public discourse and how it merges with financial interests to create stress, pressure and conflict at every level of society.

2. Religion

The major cultural religions of the world are perhaps the greatest trap for human consciousness ever devised and put to use as a means of controlling people. This has been corrupting the world and killing people for thousands of years.

The acceptance of the possibility of a better existence after death is an excuse to ignore the quality of life one is living in this existence, and is used as an excuse to participate in wickedness.

We of course see how this paradigm is being used against us today to create a major riff among the people of the earth as global leaders push for a new religious war pitting Islam against Christianity. No one can win if this battle is allowed to escalate.

3. Scientism

“Not what I call real science, but what I call ultra rigid skepticism in the form of quote/unquote science, that’s peddled for modern science in today’s world.” ~ Mark Passio

Science has become a religion of sorts, where ideas are vetted in a strange process of study mixed with peer review, mixed with corporate and monetary influence, mixed with egos.

In this paradigm, there is no room for ideas which challenge long-held assumptions and theories about the world, stifling human progress.

Rebel researchers like Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake, are examples of how interesting ideas about where the human is coming from and where it is headed are shut down by the rigid thinking of a scientific world which pushes wholesale skepticism as affable quality.

“Science places itself on a pedestal and assures everyone it has dispassionately arrived at its conclusions. Meanwhile, however, it is full of assumptions, denials and limitations, and makes the serious mistake of presenting its theories as facts. The errors of mainstream science are gladly seized upon by technocrats, eager to use science and technology to further their own ambitions of control…” ~ Makia Freeman

4. The New Age Movement

Another box for human consciousness which is relatively new in our world is the New Age Movement, which abandons genuine science in favor of feel good platitudes which keep people sidelined from taking action and fully participating in our world. It is a unique, open source belief system which

It’s tenets are described by the following 10 bullets here:

1. Ignore the “Negative”

2. Never Get Angry

3. It’s All One, So it’s All Good

4. You Can Never Really Know

5. Accept Injustice, Never Resist

6. A Watered-Down Law of Attraction

7. Turning the Other Cheek (it evens out the scars!)

8. Chaos Should Be Feared

9. We Must Feel Good all the Time

10. Truth Doesn’t Need to be Defended

Mark Passio

5. The Monetary System – The General Belief in Money

This is the greatest trap of all, enslaving nearly everyone on our planet. At the root of this deception is the general belief in money, that is, in the belief that money has more value than life itself and is therefore more precious than anything life has to offer.

Because of this, countless schemes, scams, fiat systems, debt-enslavement programs, frauds, and thefts are able to syphon the energy and time of human beings, leading us nowhere but to our own ruin.

The monetary system we have today operates in this way, with a tiny ruling elite having devised and now controlling an international system of manipulation which gives unlimited power to those who create money without having to produce anything of actual value.

Final Thoughts

It is impossible to understand the conflict, chaos and division in our world without understanding the ways in which human consciousness is limited, corralled and enslaved by these paradigms. At this point in the age of communication, however, it takes a certain willfulness to continue to operate within these five boxes.

“It’s much easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled — such is the nature of confirmation bias and other psychological tools of manipulation. Breaking free of the ancient, historical ‘constant’ of mind control is an ongoing process of waking up out of a state of denial. Spiritual emergence and awakening involves a physiological break from the consensus social agreements of our planetary cultures.” ~ Karlos Kukuburra
