Breakaway

Paradoxically, the individual
who sees the gate closing
options diminishing
Freedoms vanishing
holds still, knowing not what to do

Regarding all the issues society faces
the Individual, has been told
‘All will be well’.

The Individual – instinctually – knows better, though

Still, the Individual holds still
Within the abyss of meditation
Pondering, listening
Seeking

Until a spark
a fracture
an errant behaviour
a thought
unbinds itself, seeking possibilities
seeking…solutions

A thought that frees itself from the web
that is the matrix.

Traversing information superhighway
this thought finds sustenance
finds answers
which spawn more questions
which find more answers
which –

The loop thus begins
forever.

No more fear
for the individual realizes
the answer to all his issues
comes wholly from within.

If the matrix – the system – will not provide
thence it’s time to build something more…

Consciousness respawned anew
Consciousness let loose – boundless
Consciousness finally free
how it was always meant to be

Knowing now, the individual unplugs…
ruminates, and gets to work
realizing this is just the beginning
of a whole new path
a whole new journey
a new life.

A life of meaning
only possible by imagining a better world
only possible by breaking away from the old one

And ultimately, by becoming
who you were always meant to be.

Lessons from 1984, The Matrix, and The Allegory of The Cave

The Dangers of Institutional Thinking – Lessons from 1984, The Matrix, and The Allegory of the Cave

“On the walls of the Cave, only the shadows are the Truth.” ~ from Plato’s ‘Allegory of The Cave’.

Some philosophical work is so profound as to be influential for thousands of years. Plato’s ‘The Republic‘ is one such series of dialogues. It explains and explores the relationship between state institutions and individuals, and has provided humanity with lessons in politics, philosophy and individual enlightenment since it was penned some two thousand years ago.

One of the central dialogues in The Republic is called the Allegory of the Cave. The lessons the Allegory of the Cave provides to today’s world are numerous, and its depiction of our insidious societal structure is extremely accurate and insightful — despite often going unacknowledged as such. Through its exploration of our political outer states, it also explores our psychological inner state as well.

The Allegory of The Cave proposes that what people take to be ‘reality’ in total is only a partial reality, or an all out illusion. As is all similar philosophy, the allegory is layered, but it is partially about breaking from mainstream thinking and seeking individual knowledge; the ascension of perspective; being in a cave and coming out of a cave. It’s about how we can ascend from the bottom to stand face-to-face with the golden Sun.

Socrates begins: “Let me show you in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened Behold! Human beings living in an underground cave”.

The 4 Characters of the Cave

In the Allegory there are four character types. Most people are chained, forced to watch images on a cave wall. Some however, the second character type, are unchained. They need no force; they are so transfixed with the imagery on the wall that the shadows are all they care about, and remain in the cave by choice. The images are cast on the wall by the third character type, the captors, who use a fire behind them to produce various shadows, to keep the prisoners entertained. The prisoners interpret the shadows and whatever noises are made as reality in total, for it is all they know. The fourth character type is the freed prisoner — the enlightened and the informed.

The narrative of The Cave hypothesizes what happens after the prisoner is released from the false imagery to which his society is subjected. In the film The Matrix, Neo is the freed prisoner; in 1984, Winston Smith dreams of being the freed prisoner.

The Freed Prisoner

The story of the freed prisoner goes that, after initial shock and distress, the prisoner learns to distinguish between reality and shadows, and sees the fire producing the shadows. When exiting the cave, he is first blinded by the light but eventually learns the basics of nature. He learns what is real, and what is shadow and reflection. He learns of Earth and Water and that all is dependent on the Sun, seasons and all life. After learning of the true reality outside the cave, free of the false images of his captors, the prisoner is inclined to return and inform those still confined to the cave of their present predicament… with unexpected results.

1984-movie

Similarly, the story of 1984 by George Orwell takes place within an imagined dystopian future; the allegorical cavern. The Telescreen, shown above, which constantly transmits as well as oversees, is equivalent to the shadows on the cave wall cast by the unseen captors — in this case, the Inner Party. Most people in 1984 are Proles; they are equivalent to the people chained in the cave, forced to accept false imagery as their reality. They have been prisoners their whole lives and do not notice the fact they are chained. The Outer party are the unchained, remaining totally transfixed on the party line told by the Telescreen. They are so loyal to the imagery and narrative created by their captors that they will believe whatever they are shown, rather than observe for themselves. They will believe two plus two is five, as the saying goes, as long as it is presented as such on the Telescreen.

In the dystopian world of The Matrix, the same futuristic Allegory of The Cave is again explored. Neo is freed and seeks to free the others, and encounters the same archetypes and challenges. Moreover the return of the freed prisoner can also be related to the ‘return of the prophet’ described in many theological constructs.

The Freed and the Scorned

The experience of the freed prisoner who returns to the Cave to free his fellow captors is depicted in all three narratives; the Allegory of the Cave, 1984, and The Matrix.

In 1984 Emmanuel Goldstein (Emmanuel = God is with us, Goldstein = gold rock) is a character who figuratively left the cave, or understood the Inner Party’s images were lies and attempted to get others to understand the institutional lies. Emmanuel is the supposed leader of the elusive Brotherhood in 1984, and is scorned, even hated by society. His attempt to enlighten his community to its captivity is met with disbelief, resistance and scorn.

The-Danger-of-Institutional-Thinking-Lessons-from-1984-The-Matrix-and-The-Allegory-of-The-Cave

The character of Winston Smith in 1984 is that of a person who attempts to leave the cave. He is privy to certain Inner Party lies and begins to question the Inner Party line and seek alternate facts and perceptions. Winston’s end is not a happy one; akin to the return of the prisoner hypothesized in The Allegory of The Cave, he attempts to leave the cave only to be shut in and beaten down – made to hold the party line by both prisoners and captors alike.

Similarly, today, individuals can transmute from dull repetitive ‘thought’ into ascended golden thinking, but as our minds are freed, one at a time, we ultimately find that our broader society is embedded with a series of norms and structures — of Matrices and Caves — that perpetuate false imagery, preserving the status quo from the ‘threat’ of individual thinking.

The Complete Patriot’s Guide to Oligarchical Collectivism: Theory and Practice

Ethan Indigo Smith’s book The Complete Patriot’s Guide is an insightful exploration of history, philosophy and contemporary politics of today’s heavily institutionalized society.

An inspiration for positive, peaceful individual action, The Complete Patriot’s Guide is pro-individual in its perspective and, although political, discusses our society and its institutions from neither left-wing nor right-wing perspectives, exploring metaphors and symbolism relative to the fictional work of George Orwell through real history, philosophy and contemporary politics. Layered with insight, it is in part a literary exploration of the themes raised in Orwell’s 1984, and provides theories for individual and collective empowerment.

The Complete Patriot’s Guide to Oligarchical Collectivism is available here on Amazon.

IRAQ & CHINA

January 8, 2016

You may have missed this story from last year as the holidays loomed, and more particularly because the lamestream media of the West was busy with infotainment and the American presidential (s)election non-race, but there was another significant development in the Middle East as Iraq’s leader, Mr. Haidar al-Abadi headed to Beijing for talks with Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, according to this article shared by Mr. B.:

ISIS, Chinese investment in focus as Iraqi PM heads to China

Note carefully the following comments, for this is another story to watch in 2016, namely, China’s increasing role in the Middle East:

Abadi will hold talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said. Talks between the leaders are expected to focus on the fight against Islamic State as well as bilateral ties between China and Iraq. Abadi has said he will ask for increased Chinese investment to rebuild the country.

Over the past year Iraq has received weapons systems from China, Russia and Iran. China is the top foreign player in Iraq’s oilfields, which are the largest in the Middle East open to foreign investment.

Ahead of his trip to Beijing, Abadi said that his country is working on deepening relations with China, saying “we are seeking to promote such relations in all aspects, in particular in investment and rebuilding infrastructure.”(Emphasis added)

I suggest that what this represents is an almost complete failure of American policy in the region, as Iraq was left essentially devastated by the American and British invasion of the country in the wake of 9/11. You’ll note that Mr. Abadi is asking for Chinese help in rebuilding his country’s infrastructure, and for real assistance in combating ISIS in the wake of America’s failures in this regard, highlighted more recently by Mr. Putin’s decision to intervene in Syria.

The message here could not be plainer, at least from Baghdad’s standpoint: America simply cannot be trusted, period. Indeed, its track record of deceptions vis-a-vis the crucial Middle Eastern country is dismal at best, and began the long descent of Iraq into chaos when the US Ambassador to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, April Glaspie, basically “greenlighted” the invasion of Kuwait that forged the pretext for the first Gulf War during the administration of G.H.W. Bush. Notably, Iraq is now receiving weapons systems from China, Russia, and former enemy, Iran.

Nations are now using weather modification as clandestine warfare, CIA warns


Source: NaturalNews.com
By: Daniel Barker

Many nations possess the ability to use weather modification, or geoengineering, as a weapon. The notion is scary, but true; from relatively simple methods such as airplanes that put rain-producing chemicals in the air, to more sophisticated technologies developed in areas like the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facility in Alaska, weather manipulation is not only possible, but has already been used as a secret wartime weapon.

The subject of geoengineering as a weapon has been in the news recently, following comments made by Rutgers University climatologist Alan Robock regarding a CIA-funded consultancy firm’s request for information.

Weather manipulation questioned by CIA consultants

Robock explains that the consultants contacted his department at the New Jersey-based university, saying they were hired by the CIA. He says they inquired about whether or not climate experts would be able to determine if another country was attempting to control the climate. The climatologist also says the callers asked, “If we control someone else’s climate, would they then know about it?”

Robock told the consultants that any large-scale weather manipulation would be detectable.

Obviously, the CIA seems to have a very keen interest in the subject of weather modification. In fact, Robock appears to confirm the rumor that the agency contributed to funding for a recently-published U.S. National Academy of Sciences report on geoengineering.

According to the Daily Mail, “Professor Robock said the CIA had told one of his colleagues it wanted to fund the report, but apparently did not want this fact to be too obvious.” Robock found this concerning, saying that “The CIA is a major funder of the National Academies report so that makes me really worried [about] who is going to be in control.”

Altering the weather has been a wartime ploy for years

However, it is likely that many countries now have the capability to modify weather. In reality, weather used as a weapon is not a new concept; several historical examples of weather manipulation used in times of battle exist.

For example, Robock mentions that geoengineering existed in Vietnam, where, for a period of five years, U.S. planes engaged in cloud seeding missions that were successful in increasing rainfall and prolonging monsoon seasons.

The U.S. also used cloud seeding against Cuba in an effort to make it rain and ruin the sugar harvest.

A surprisingly in-depth report on the subject, posted on the website of the local CBS affiliate WCCO-TV, recounts an experiment in geoengineering conducted by the British military during the early 1950s that went horribly awry.

Lauren Casey, WCCO-TV weather team member and author of the post, elaborates on the subject.

“Following World War II, England sought a weather modification method for addition to their defense repertoire. The Royal Air Force conducted a cloud seeding experiment dubbed ‘Operation Cumulus’ near North Devon, a district in southern England.”

She explains that a great deal of rain fell in a short period of time, wreaking havoc on the general area.

“The experiment induced a deluge during which three months’ worth of rain fell in 24 hours. Ninety million tons of water swept down a narrow valley into the town [of] Lynmouth, destroying whole buildings and sweeping residents out to sea. Some 35 Britons lost their lives as a result.”

Millions of dollars spent on weather experiments

Research, development and use of geoengineering weapons have been taking place for many decades. Along with a few other countries, the U.S. has obviously taken the idea seriously, as they’ve poured millions of dollars into research.

For example, HAARP, — a facility in Alaska that has put hundreds of millions of dollars into their efforts — has the potential to alter weather on a massive scale by supercharging the ionosphere. In fact, the Air Force has admitted that such weather experiments can, and have, been conducted.
