These are notes I made prior to authoring my collection, Power Outside The Matrix:
The feelings and states of mind in the headline above are people’s reactions to what’s going on in the world—but what’s going on in the world is being manipulated on a large scale. And one purpose of that manipulation is: producing those very feelings and states of mind—depression, cynicism, passivity.
This is amplified by the increased frequency of staged events; shootings, economic downturns, phony scare-tactic epidemics, absurd reversals of common-sense justice, and so on.
Psychological operations (psyops) are planned with the purpose of demoralizing populations. That’s the frequent goal. It’s intentional.
What’s at stake is the life-force of the individual.
If he keeps surrendering his own energy and space and passion and reason and imagination to these psyops, he falls into a black hole; or he decides to focus on some glazed-donut Disney version of rescue and salvation.
That’s the idea. That’s the plan.
Of course, all along the way, he cooks up excuses, excuses, excuses. These become his only weapons.
For the past 30 years and more, my work has moved in the opposite direction: become as aware as possible about what’s really going on in the world, behind the scenes—and then build on that knowledge to launch, with life-force and creative impulse, individual enterprises that surpass “the reality machine.”
The reality machine turns out nothing but status quo, status quo, and fake consensus and conformity.
Everything about the individual, everything about his inherent capacity and potential, can be summed up as: imagination.
