March 14, 2015
This segment will be populated with the terms and concepts that have the potential to be misinterpreted in this series. There are of course other ways to define and understand these concepts. This is simply an attempt to clarify their intended meaning as they appear within this series.
Alien - one way to define alien is "something that is foreign to the environment in which it is found". Thus, an alien could be a non-human being (a being from another planet, another space, another time, or another dimension), an alien could be a non-human entity (a corporation, a government or a belief system) or "alien" could simply refer to a concept that is unfamiliar to us.
Actually, how we define the word alien is not as important as properly discerning whether something that we perceive to be alien is harmful or beneficial. In other words, just because something is "alien" to us does not automatically mean that it is good or bad. For example, a programmed member of a cult might consider anything that exists outside of their programming (comfort zone) to be something that is alien to them (regardless of its true intent).
The key to understanding the "alien" Invasion is
conscious awareness. The key to the Resistance is understanding and controlling our own thoughts (responsible cognition) and our own actions (responsible freewill). When we choose to individually (internally) administer (govern) these two things, then we create the potential for true freedom to exist. However, when we allow these two things to be externally administered or controlled for us (by proxy), we create the
probability of both physical and mental slavery.
Alien Abduction - the term "alien abduction" can either have a literal or a
symbolic meaning attached to it. For example, it could refer to an actual physical abduction by non-human beings (aliens). Or, symbolically, it could refer to the abduction of our consciousness (and our subsequent actions) by various non-human "entities" (i.e. governments, corporations, religions, television, entertainment, social
media, computers, video games, smartphones and other forms of technology...either known
or "alien" to
Archon - archon means "ruler". However, as it is used in this series, I would expand that definition to mean a secret, hidden or unseen ruler. Most of the rulers of this world, rule through secrecy. They are the unseen puppet masters who rule over others from the shadows. Some of these shadows exist in the physical world, some are in the non-physical world and some exist within our own minds (the subconscious mind).
Ascension - ascension means "to rise, or to move up". In this series, the word ascension is used to describe the expansion of consciousness (and awareness) via the practice of experience, learning and growth. Contrary to popular belief, there aren't any real shortcuts to the ascension of consciousness. However, the process of ascension isn't as mysterious as one might think (although it can be quite a mystical experience at times).
Balance - please see the entry for "we" and the segment The Balance of Creation.
Belief - belief is a good example of a word that has multiple meanings and multiple connotations. In many organized systems of control (religious, political, financial, etc), it is the idea of belief that usually lies (pun intended) at the foundation of the system. Belief is what gives these systems their life and it is what perpetuates their existence.
In some parts of the alternative media today, belief has actually become somewhat of a dirty word. In fact, you may even find yourself being scolded if you are caught using it. I have heard some researchers even go so far as to say that they don't believe in anything.
What do these two views of belief have in common? They are both highly polarized views (or "beliefs") that help to promote the corrupt system that we live in (usually at the expense of the individual).
On one hand we have various control systems that encourage people to blindly believe in dogma (while simultaneously discouraging the pursuit of knowledge and awareness that may exist outside of their particular belief system).
And on the other hand, we have various people who are (unintentionally but effectively) encouraging the dis-empowerment of the individual. How does that occur? By making belief a dirty word, it helps to negate the potential positive aspects of belief within the subconscious mind (through association and disassociation).
For example, here are some positive aspects of belief that might be negatively impacted via an association with this "bad word". I believe in myself. I believe that you can accomplish your goals. I believe in your ability to make a positive difference in the world. I believe this thing to be true (based on my research), but I also reserve the right to modify my belief in the future (should new information come to light). I recognize that there are great problems in the world, but I believe in the ability of the human race to excel (should they choose to do so). And so on.
What is the answer to this dilemma regarding belief?
Answer One: Simply use a different word. However, I think that this would help to play into one of the primary agendas of the system (to dis-empower and divide the people).
Answer Two: Understand the issues and the problems that arise when one adopts a belief (system) that is based solely on dogma or purely on faith. Faith is good, but not when it replaces constructive action or it discourages the pursuit of knowledge, awareness and understanding. Not all forms of belief are harmful. Belief can be a very powerful (and empowering) thing when its power is properly understood and its potential is harnessed correctly.
Chains - common definition: a group of closed metal rings or links that are bound together in a series. Alternate definition: a group (or gang) of virtual restraints that hold us back from engaging in and realizing our true potential (chains of doubt, chains of conformity, chains of rigidity, chains of dogma, chains of indoctrination, chains of illusion, chains of ridicule, chains of fear, chains of the ego, etc). To break free from the Chain Gang is to set yourself free.
Collective - in this series, the word collective is used mainly to refer to a group of people. Community, on the other hand, is used to refer to a group of individuals. In terms of social engineering, a collective typically refers to manufactured conformity (artificial unity or the hive mind), while a community refers to organic diversity (natural synergy and true unity).
Contact - "alien" contact often occurs on levels that may be unfamiliar or confusing to us here in the physical realm. Alien contact can include many different "elements" of information, some of which may be highly beneficial, and others which may be very misleading (if interpreted incorrectly or simply taken at face value). Discernment is important. Love Comes Walking In (Van Halen).
Confidence vs. Arrogance - confidence is created via education, experience, learning, growth and understanding (and through belief and faith). Arrogance is created from ignorance, illusion, delusion and separation (and through belief and faith). Confidence is connected to Creation. Arrogance is connected to the ego.
Consequence - please see "heaven" and "hell".
Control Grid - is analogous to the matrix or the "system". Please see the definition of matrix for more info.
Cosmology - cosmology is the study of the origin and the "evolution" of the universe. Understanding where we came from is a very important aspect in understanding how we got here (to the present) and where we are going (in the future). There are many different cosmologies that exist within the world. In my view, the best cosmologies are the ones that are the simplest. The more elaborate and complex that cosmologies become, the more that they tend to distract us from the core or foundation of who we are right now. We are sentient and sovereign beings endowed with freewill. Therefore, we are the masters of our own destiny.
Dinosaur - dinosaur is a metaphor for describing an outdated mode of thought or an outdated practice. The ancient dinosaurs were victims of an external disaster which led to their extinction. The Dinosaurs of Tomorrow will be "victims" of an internal disaster which will have the potential to lead to their destruction and extinction.
Diversity - diversity is related in some ways to the concepts of duality, division and polarity. Diversity can occur naturally (be organically created) or diversity can be artificially created (manufactured). Both natural and artificial diversity are capable of creating synergy and/or division within a culture or society.
When diversity is organically derived, it often finds a natural balance point by itself, thus creating the potential for synergy and strength within a natural culture or society. On the other hand, when diversity is artificially created or manufactured, it sometimes creates division, separation and animosity within a culture or society via various artificial mechanisms of control and/or the centralized administration of policy.
Division - see "duality"
Doublethink - is a word that was coined by George Orwell in his book "1984". According to Orwell, "doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them".
Duality - the word duality can be used in many different ways. Duality simply means "of two, or dual". In this series, I used the word duality to try and help differentiate manufactured division (the System of Two) from natural division (natural polarities). The word duality is sometimes used by other authors to describe natural polarities.
Answer: It is what we (individually and collectively) choose to make of it. A school can either be a place for learning and growth, and/or a school can be an institution of conformity and control (i.e. a prison).
Ego - a healthy ego helps to define who we are (our identity and our individuality). Without a healthy ego, it would be very difficult (if not impossible) to have individual experiences and to learn and grow as earthly and spiritual beings. A healthy ego is what helps to create
aware-ness (leading to compassion and understanding). An unhealthy ego, on the other hand, is
what helps to create blindness and
ignore-ance (leading to individual and collective suffering). The ego, by itself, is not good or evil. Rather,
it's how the ego is developed and/or corrupted that usually leads us down a path towards good and/or evil. For more info regarding the unhealthy (corrupted) ego, please see the entry for "god" (little g).
Entity - the term "entity" may be defined as "that which is perceived, known or inferred to have its own distinct existence (living or nonliving)".
Based on the definition above, an entity could be a person, a politician, a deity, a corporation, a government, an agency, a group, an alien, a ghost, an angel, a demon, a car, a smartphone or any number of other "life forms" that either have a distinct life of their own, or a life to which we have given to them.
I imagine that if asked, many people would probably say that they don't believe in such things as "unseen entities". However, I would argue that much of our behavior, from birth to death, is actually a direct reflection of the programming and conditioning that we have received from various unseen entities (that exist on many different levels).
It's important to understand that it's not necessary to have a conscious belief in an entity in order for it to gain power and control over us. In other words, we can effectively give power and life to an entity by simply allowing our actions and our inactions (either consciously or unconsciously) to reflect the "will" of a particular entity. It's also important to understand that "unseen" doesn't necessarily mean invisible. Rather, perhaps more accurately, it is a reference to something that is unrecognized in our environment (internally and/or externally).
Therefore, in order to break free from the influence of any entity, it's important to have a conscious recognition of how that entity is influencing us. Conscious recognition (sight), is based on the pursuit and the development of knowledge, awareness and understanding -- a process and a "journey" that is always ongoing, continually unfolding and forever expanding.
The term "entity" sometimes has a negative connotation attached
to it, however, entities can also have a positive influence on us as well. The key to understanding the
true nature of an entity, once again, relies on us developing a proper
awareness of how it is affecting us (both individually and collectively).
Fantasy - an escape from reality and/or an Eclipse of the Truth. The imagination is a wonderful and beautiful thing. When it is used benevolently and sparingly, the imagination can be comforting, inspiring and empowering. However, when it is used for malevolent purposes or as a method to regularly escape reality, it can lead to destruction and/or apathy.
False Flag - a false flag is simply an event or an occurrence that has been used in a false (deceptive) manner in order to support a particular agenda. In some cases, a false flag may involve a false narrative that is based on something that never actually occurred. However, other times it may involve a person, a group or a country (pawn) that has been maneuvered or setup in such a way as to create a real event that can then be used to justify a subsequent action or agenda of the architect (of the false flag). A false flag can also involve an event that is independently carried out by a person, a group or a country (without the influence of an architect) but is then blamed on another person, group or country and used as a catalyst or justification to move forward with a particular agenda against a person, group or country (that was not involved in the original event) .
Fear - please see "heaven" and "hell"
Flight - the hanger = pregnancy and/or the hanger = ignorance (garaged awareness). Birth = to come out of the hanger and/or birth = "oh no, not this place again". Flight school = education and/or flight school = indoctrination. The boarding gate = taking on knowledge and/or the boarding gate = taking on distractions. To taxi down the runway = finding the path and/or to taxi down the runway = being led into conformity. The tower = guidance and/or the tower = the system. Flight = ascension and/or flight = escapism.
Freedom - please see the entries for "morality", "freewill", "rights", "ego", "knowledge", "ignorance", "truth", "karma", "love", "now", "heaven" and "hell". Or, just read through all of the entries on this page, because they are all related to the pursuit, the realization and the continuation of true freedom.
Freewill - freewill, by itself, is not analogous to freedom. When freewill is understood, used properly (i.e. responsibly) and defended (when needed), it can lead to true freedom. However, when freewill is misunderstood, misused, abused or taken for granted, it can lead to slavery (or artificial/synthetic freedom).
God (Big G)- God is that which connects everything together. God is the One that Created many other ones. And it is the many ones (every one) that help to create that which defines One. Within One is one. And within one is One. Thus, all is part of God, and God is part of all. This does not mean that one and all are the same. Rather, it means that everything is connected and that all is part of the same One.
God is not restricted to
one religion or to
one deity. God exists in all of Creation and on many different levels. It is up to the creators (one) within Creation (One) to choose the level of connection (or the relationship) that they wish to have with God (Creation/All). Personally, I am comfortable with using the word God to describe the Creator and Creation (when it is properly defined within the context that it is used). However, there many other terms such as Great Spirit, Creator, Creation, Divine, Source, Universal Consciousness, etc that can also be used to describe the same concept.
god (little g) - In this series, the word "god" was used to describe the psychopathic and sociopathic behavior that occurs when one arrogantly removes themselves from Nature/Source/Creation (One) in the blind pursuit of "godhood" (i.e. the worship of the ego, the corruption of freewill and the pursuit of external power via exploitation and control over others).
In my view, texts that describe humans as being "gods" can be potentially dangerous due to the effect that this can have on the ego. Even when these texts attempt to properly explain what is meant by this concept, once the ego hears the word "god" it is usually too late because the ego will subsequently filter out (or distort) anything that is contrary to viewing itself as a "god".
The potential to become a "god" is very effective bait for the ego because of the way in which the ego has been corrupted in our modern world. The "system" slowly chips away at our self-confidence (through various psychological mechanisms of control) and then manufactures the (incorrect) idea that we are helpless to change anything that exists within us or around us. Thus, the idea of being a "god" looks very attractive to the ego because (on the surface) this helps to restore some of the personal power and self-confidence that was lost during our psychological programming and conditioning.
This pushes the ego into overdrive (driving it to the other side of the polarity) so that it begins to over-shadow the spirit (which is our connection to Creation/God/Great Spirit/Source). It is the
corrupted ego that weighs us down and keeps us prisoner. In this state, the ego is not a "god", it is a prison guard. The goal is not to eliminate the ego, however. Rather, it is to educate ourselves so that we can more readily recognize imbalances when they occur and then do what is necessary to help restore synergy, harmony and balance between the mind, body and spirit (three to one).
Grays - grays are a metaphor for a race of beings that chose to trade their natural and organic existence for a synthetic and artificial world. Grays are entities that exist throughout time (past, present and future) because the struggle to properly understand "progress" and "evolution" is a battle that is eternal in nature (and in non-nature). Actually, Grays already exist within the fabric of both space and time. Whether they remain a metaphor or become a reality in "our time" is entirely up to us. How we choose to use (or abuse) our freewill is the unanswered question that will determine the future of the human race.
Guilt - guilt may arise from an action that we take, or it may be something that is manufactured entirely for purposes of control. How do we determine if guilt is valid or not? There are conscious errors of judgment and there are unconscious errors of judgment. Here are a few questions to consider: Did the act that created the guilt harm someone else? If it did, then the feeling of guilt is probably valid. However, what if the act that created the guilt was a mistake? Was the mistake an unconscious one (based on lack of knowledge and/or lack of understanding), or was it one of willful ignorance (to feed the desires of the ego)? Was the mistake a one-time occurrence? Or, was the "mistake" an ongoing behavior?
The ability to modify our behavior is a choice that is always available to us through freewill (as long as we are willing to sacrifice parts of the ego and/or portions of our personal comfort in the process). The degree to which we are willing to sacrifice the ego, determines the level of choice that we perceive there to be. This is something that the ego hates to hear. The ego wants to believe that there was no other choice in the matter. This is how we (and the ego) escape responsibility. This is usually where guilt comes from. It is a battle between the ego and the conscience. The idea that any action can be freely taken without any guilt or consequence associated with it is something that system feeds us, in order to feed itself. It is a primary mechanism that contributes to our enslavement and our suffering (on both an individual level and on a collective level).
Heaven - is the state of being (both internal and external) that we create via our actions and our non-actions (i.e. the proper use of freewill). Heaven is not something that is freely given away via a blind faith in some religion or the worship and/or acceptance of some deity. Heaven is not an eternal place. Heaven is earned (achieved) and maintained through the responsible use of freewill (experience, learning, growth and wisdom). Heaven is not a reward. It is a consequence of our actions and our non-actions. Heaven is achievable when freewill is honored and used wisely/responsibly.
Hell - is the state of being (both internal and external) that we create via our actions and our inactions (i.e. the
improper use of freewill). Hell is not something that is imposed on us for believing in the wrong religion, rejecting religion and/or worshiping the wrong religious deity. Hell is not an eternal place. Hell is earned (achieved) and
maintained through the
irresponsible use of freewill (non-learning and
non-growth). Hell is not a punishment. It is a
consequence of our actions and our inactions. Hell is possible when freewill is taken for granted, misused, abused and/or rejected.
Humor - some say that the most spiritual people are the most humorous people. Others say that the most spiritual people are the most serious people. Some say the best way to reach people is through humor. Others say that the best way to trivialize and dismiss a serious subject is to make fun of it. Which one is the correct belief? What is the best approach to take if one wishes to try and wake people up?
The best way to wake someone up is by using your own individual strengths and talents to the best of your ability. The right way is to take all input into consideration and then decide what is best for that particular situation. The wrong way to follow a particular way just because someone else tells you that it is right way (think about this for a moment as it applies to the previous sentence and to the concept of "do no harm"). Another way (middle way) might be to try and incorporate both seriousness and humor together in a spontaneous and balanced way.
Ignorance - ignorance simply means lack of knowledge. Ignorance is not a derogatory term, nor was it intended to be derogatory in the context that it was used in this series. Ignorance only becomes derogatory when it is willful ignorance (ignoring knowledge and willfully suppressing awareness...see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil...in order to create a personal bubble or comfort zone around oneself).
Infinity - please see "we"
Inoculation - inoculation refers to the process of protecting oneself from "infection". In terms of physical health, this includes eating good natural foods, drinking pure natural water and exercising regularly. In terms of mental health, this includes "feeding" the mind with good "wholesome" (unadulterated) knowledge in order to help stimulate the growth of awareness and understanding. Good health is also dependent upon learning how to identify and avoid unhealthy "substances" in our daily lives (physical and psychological elements that can work to corrupt, suppress or destroy the body and the mind). When the mind and the body are treated as a temple (respected and cared for), good spiritual health is encouraged as well.
Developing a good balance (or awareness) between the mind, body, and spirit helps to shield us from harmful "pathogens" (physical, psychological and spiritual elements) that may be circulating around in the environment . Balance also helps to encourage a healthy ego which, in turn, helps to "firewall" (protect) the mind, body and spirit from potential negative outside influences.
Invasion - the invasion is the resistance, and the resistance is the invasion. Darkness (blindness) invades and resists the light (awareness), and Awareness "invades" and resists the darkness (ignorance).
Judgment - (true definition) is to discern the difference between objective right and wrong (i.e does an action bring harm to ourselves or harm to another). Judgment (common use) is to project a subjective system of morality upon an individual or a group (i.e. an idea, a concept or a belief that exists outside of objective right and wrong).
Karma - the idea of karma can be as simple or as complex as a person wants to make it. It can represent a beneficial mode of thought, and/or it can be distorted into a potentially destructive way of thinking. In my view, the concept of karma is quite simple. Basically, it can be summed up in the following way: 1) Do no harm, to yourself or to others 2) Treat others as though you would like to be treated, and 3) Do not treat others the way that you do not want to be treated. From these three main principles, the concept of karmic (moral) consequence follows (causality, or cause and effect). Consciousness, choice and consequence provide us with the ability to experience (or not experience), to learn (or not learn) and to grow (or not grow).
Personally, I don't believe in the traditional idea of an eternal "heaven" and/or an eternal "hell". However, I do think that we can individually and collectively create our own temporary heavens and hells (internally and externally) through our actions, our non-actions and our inactions. To properly understand the concept of karma, it is important to understand both the individual and the collective, and how they are related (connected) to each other.
Is this an imperfect world? A cruel world? A harsh world? It can be. However, without choice and consequence, there can be no opportunity for experience, learning and growth. Would the world be better off without the expression of free creative thought and without the opportunity for free creative action? Would we (as humans) be better off without individuality? Would
Creation be better off without
creators in it? Freewill is neither good nor evil. It's how we choose to use (or not use) our freewill that creates the
potential for good and/or evil in this world.
Knowledge - the existence of knowledge by itself is neither good nor evil. It is how knowledge is used (via freewill) that determines its true nature (and its consequence). For example, knowledge can be used within the darkness of ignorance to produce more darkness (evil). Or, knowledge can be used in conjunction with the light of wisdom (understanding) in order to produce more light (good).
We need the light to teach us, just as much as we need the darkness to teach us. When we choose to ignore the darkness (willful ignorance) in the
blind pursuit of light (knowledge), this is when the potential for evil is
created. And when we ignore the light of
One (Creation) in the blind pursuit of
one (the corrupted ego), this is also when the potential for evil is
created. Light and wisdom are created through understanding (or, in other words, by learning how to bridge the gap that exists between the light and the dark).
Light and Dark, Good and Evil - light and dark are natural polarities that exist within the natural world. Good and evil, on the other hand, are
extensions of these natural polarities that are created by us (and others) through the use of freewill (using light, dark and other polarities of choice).
Live and Let Live - some say that "live and let live" is a mantra that we should all live by. This sounds good on the surface, except that this only one-half of the equation. The other half of the equation is "do no harm".
As tyranny and oppression continue to grow in this world, expressions such as "live and let live, "do what thou wilt" and (perhaps most disturbing) "reality is whatever you can get away with" are beginning to gain more and more traction in popular culture. However, I don't think that most people understand that these ideas are actually the main tenets behind the "left-hand path", Satanism and dark occultism.
How did we get into this mess to begin with? A small group of people began to think of themselves as "gods", "rulers" and "chosen people" and then started to use their power of freewill and "creation" irresponsibly (i.e. without any regard to how their actions would affect others around them or below them). Then portions of society (using the "gods" and the "rulers" as role models) began doing the same thing. Now some people are suggesting that the way out of this oppressive Satanic society is to actually encourage more of the same type of behavior (do what thou wilt) in order to help equalize the playing field. See anything wrong with this philosophy?
To act as a "god" is to derive action that is most often based on the corrupted ego (or the blind/shadow/disconnected self). To act as "God" (in concert with Creation) is to understand our connection to all and to act responsibly with awareness and morality towards all (including ourselves). For more info, please see "morality", "rights", "respect", "god", "Satanism", and "heaven" and "hell".
Loophole - loopholes are exceptions and ambiguities that are mostly manufactured internally (in the mind) for the purpose of sidestepping external laws ("man's law" and/or Universal Law). Loopholes are related to justifications and rationalizations. Conscious (awareness), conscience (ethics/morality) and consciousness (state of being) are related to (and necessary for) the realization of true and lasting freedom.
Love - What is love? Asking this question is a lot like asking what is God. Actually there are many different forms of love. However, in this series, I am referring mostly to the concept of Universal Love. What is Universal Love? The short answer is this: It is a realization that we are connected to everything that exists around us.
Instead of creating a new definition for Love, I'll just reference the definition that I created for the segment titled - The Battle Between the Light and the Darkness:
What is True Love? True Love is not a gooey concept as some might suggest. It is also not an "artificial sweetener" (although it is often used in this manner). True Love is not just about hugs and kisses. True Love is a love of life. True Love is about standing up for what is right, even when others may think that it is something "negative". True Love is about the expression of understanding, compassion and empathy. But it is also about discernment, awareness and action. True Love is caring enough to take the necessary time to try and understand a situation so that an action taken by us moves us towards balance (rather than towards imbalance via programmed and conditioned reactions or inactions). True love is about knowing when an action is necessary, and when no action is necessary. True love is about knowing when forgiveness is appropriate (to help foster sincere growth and understanding), and when letting go is necessary (in order to remove true toxicity from our lives).
True love is about learning how to embrace both the light and the dark and learning how to grow from each type of experience. True Love is also about learning how to become consciously aware of Evil (pathogenic darkness) and Light Blindness (pathogenic light) when these non-natural polarities are encountered or experienced. True Love is about learning how to reject/overcome Evil and Light Blindness in order to create (or restore) balance within our world, our creation, ourselves and all of Creation. And, perhaps most importantly, True Love is about the realization that the one who rejects all forms of imbalance in favor of artificial eternal bliss (pathogenic light), is the one who locks themselves into an eternal prison of stagnation, denial and non-growth.
Mask - a mask is a physical or psychological disguise that the ego uses to hide itself. Masks help us to hide from our self, hide from others and hide from true reality. Masks can also help us to grow (when used sparingly). The matrix is the stage, the costume and the makeup. We are the actors. The Masquerade is the illusion that we live in. When we choose to remove the masks and leave the parade of illusion, then we begin to set ourselves free. There is a sad truth contained within the lyrics of Masquerade. Many people end up joining the masquerade because they don't see any other way to exist (survive) outside of the system. Yes, there is a price to pay. But we do have a choice. The masquerade is not forever.
Matrix - the matrix is a synthetic system or virtual reality that is overlaid upon organic reality. The matrix consists of a group of programs (similar to viruses or Trojan horses) that work together to corrupt the "operating system" of our reality. The programs of the matrix exist as both physical and non-physical (psychological) constructs.
Middle Way - the middle way represents increased sight (perspective), extended perception and expanded awareness. The middle way is found by identifying, considering and contemplating all available options, and then choosing the correct path based on the most complete information that is available at the time. The middle way can also represent another type of polarity (middle of the road approach) when it is corrupted into a manufactured option (similar to the right and left polarities).
Morality - morality is a concept that is often associated with religion and/or sexuality. However, I think that limiting morality in this way can be misleading. In my view, morality is a simple concept, but its understanding and application applies to a much broader set of ideas such as integrity, honesty, truth, ethics, awareness, responsibility, virtue and character.
No matter what name may be given to it, however, the concept of morality is essentially the same: 1)
Do no harm to yourself or to others 2) Treat others as though you would like to be treated, and 3) Do not treat others the way that you do not want to be treated. These simple ideas can be "philosophized" and/or distorted in many different ways (and often are), however the underlying concept remains the same. For more info, please see the entries for "karma", "judgment", "rights", "live and let live", "light/dark and good/evil", "heaven" and "hell".
Negative ("negative" thinking) - the true nature of a disease can only be properly diagnosed (and addressed) through a thorough understanding of its symptoms. Thus, understanding the negative helps us get to the root of the problem and to subsequently create positive and lasting change. Treating the symptoms does not cure the disease. It only temporarily covers up its roots.
Now ("live in the now") - if we choose to live in our past, then we will likely suffer in the present. However, if we choose to focus on the future, then we will likely suffer in the past (the present moment). If we fail to learn from our past and we are blind to where we are headed in the future, then we will surely suffer in both the present and in the future.
Where do the controllers want our focus to be primarily? In the now. They do not want us to study the past because then we might recognize that history is repeating itself. For example, if we gained enough insight to clearly see the mistakes of the past, then perhaps we would not be so apt repeat the same mistakes again in the present (which would likely collapse the current empire). The controllers also do not want us to look towards the future, because then we might begin to realize that all of the insane things that "we" are doing in the present are jeopardizing our future (and "their" profits).
The controllers want us to live in the moment. They want us to believe that we are only our physical bodies and that this is our only experience. That way we will remain
fixated on blindly feeding our ego and its immediate desires. This insures the continuation of their wealth, power and control (and our ignorance, suffering and slavery). Where should we exist in time? I would suggest that the best view exists at the balance point between the past, the present and the future (the educated now).
Occult - occult simply means hidden. There is light occultism (revealing) and there is dark occultism (hiding). Light occultism means to bring "light" (awareness and understanding) to that which is unknown (or hidden). Dark occultism, on the other hand, means to actively hide knowledge from others for the purpose of creating a power differential between those that have knowledge (the rulers) and those that do not have knowledge (the ruled). Light occultism helps lead to self-empowerment and freedom. Dark occultism leads to dis-empowerment and slavery.
On the Left, to the Right - what does that mean? I imagine that the majority of people would probably say that this is a reference to political philosophies. This is how deeply these two words have become imbedded in the human psyche. However, in the context of this series, what this is referring to is a movement away from the left-hand path (currently predominant in society) towards the "right"-hand path. It is also a reference to a movement away from the our current left-brain dominated culture, into a more balanced way of thinking (that incorporates both the right-brain and the left-brain together in synergy)
One (and one) - one is the individual, the creator and the creation (fractal of One). One is the Creator and the Creation (synergy of every one). Every one is an independent and unique part of the One. The whole gets its uniqueness from the "sum" and the synergy of its parts.
Parasite - please see "vampire".
Perfection - perfection is a good example of a concept that is heavily manipulated and distorted by the system. Perfection is not about constantly chasing after unhealthy and unrealistic goals (usually encouraged by the system). Seeking perfection in this manner often leads to discouragement and a greater susceptibility to illusion. Perfection is also not about stagnation or inflation (apathy or delusion). True perfection is about the practice and the process of self-improvement accomplished through the pursuit and the achievement of realistically obtainable goals (experience, learning and growth). Thus, "perfection" is not about a stationary state of being, it is about an ongoing journey of discovery.
Polarity - please see "duality".
Positive (positive thinking) - positive thinking is helpful. However, positive action is even more helpful. We can think positively, and
hope for a positive outcome. Or we can act positively and
realize a positive change.
Punishment - please see "heaven" and "hell".
Religion (organized) - many religions today have evolved into rigid systems of dogmatic belief that often promote social and spiritual control rather than education, growth and understanding. Modern religion is usually what is left over after spirituality has been dissected, corrupted, watered down, commoditized and commercialized. There is much good esoteric information that exists within religion. However, most of it has been hidden far below the exoteric minutia that exists on the surface of most religions.
Resistance - please see "invasion"
Respect - to respect others is to approach them with consideration, compassion and understanding. However, it is counter-productive to both understanding and respect to attempt to hide the truth in order to avoid conflict or to promote a false sense of unity.
Reward - please see "heaven" and "hell"
Rights - we have certain innate rights as human beings. These are our rights to individual sovereignty and to individual freewill. However, these rights are not inalienable (i.e. they can be forfeited and/or given away). As beings of Creation we may use these rights in whatever way that we choose as long as we understand that they are bound by Universal Law ("do no harm" to ourselves or to others).
Tied to individual sovereignty and freewill are the concepts of responsibility and consequence. When rights are violated, a wrong is committed. Wrongs have consequences. Sometimes those consequences are immediate, while other times they may be delayed. Some say that we have the right to do whatever we want to ourselves as long as it does not harm another. This sounds reasonable until one begins to truly understand how everything is connected within Creation. That is not to say that external entities (people, government, religion, corporations, etc.) have the right to dictate how we
choose to use and/or abuse our own bodies. Rather, it is to say that the harm that we bring to ourselves, is rarely limited to just ourselves.
Righteousness - righteousness is a term (like morality) that is often associated with religion. However, righteousness simply means the act of pursuing and doing that which is right, just and true (for both one and One). What is "right", "just" and "true"? That is a question that has been asked many times throughout the ages. For some possible answers to that question, please see the entries for "morality", "freewill", "rights", "ego", "knowledge", "judgment", "ignorance", "truth", "karma", "love", "now" and "heaven" and "hell".
Satanism - Satanism is a philosophical and religious belief system that is based on the worship of the ego and the worship of the material world (blind materialism).
Although devils and demons are not specifically part of the mainstream Satanic belief system, they are related to it in that they could be thought of as archetypes of the corrupted ego. Devils and demons exist within us and they can manifest through us in a variety of different ways. They exist in both the physical world and in the non-physical world.
In the Gnostic view, the corrupted ego could be thought of as the Demiurge. In the Jungian view, the corrupted ego could be thought of as the "shadow" (or the unknown self). In mythology, the corrupted ego is sometimes characterized in the form of a "god". In fact, there are many different archetypes that represent the corrupted ego, and they can be found in many different cultures throughout the world.
Synthetic Truth - synthetic truth may be defined as a comfortable or convenient lie; cognitive dissonance; willful ignorance (or Comfortably Numb)
Time - here on the physical plane of earth, time is usually thought of as linear phenomena. However, as many people have probably realized from experience, time isn't always as structured, definable and mechanical as it is believed to be. In reality, time is constantly being reshaped and redefined based on what our individual perspectives and perceptions are (at any given "time"). As a result of this, time can actually exist in many different forms and states. Thus, the past and the future are constantly moving away from us, and towards us, at varying speeds.
In the modern world, we are increasingly being trained (or entrained) to focus our attention on only that which exists right before us from one moment to the next (i.e. instant "gratifications", constant "stimulations", instant "notifications", continuous "feeds" and endless "streams"). This is distorting our perception of time (making it less beneficial to us, and more beneficial to those who wish to keep us residing in a more manageable very narrow framework of tightly controlled recurring "time loops").
Perhaps another way of looking at time is this...the past and the future do not move away from each other, but rather they move towards each other in cycles (or in circles) that meet once again in the present. Thus, history has a tendency to continually repeat itself unless we choose (through freewill) to break-free from these repeating cycles. This is the reason why the concepts of freewill, time and cycles have been explored so many times throughout this series.
The future is like a set of probabilities that are wound up in small cycles which are then nested into larger cycles. As humans, our general view of time is "keyed" (or translated) into a framework that matches our life expectancy. Then it is further defined by various forms of individual (and collective) programming(s), conditioning(s) and experience(s).
To use an analogy, the future could be thought of as a car that is speeding towards a brick wall. As long as the car is a sufficient distance from the wall, it can be turned rather easily in a new direction. However, the closer that the car gets to the wall, the less time that there is to change its course in order to avoid a collision with the wall. If we continue (as individuals and as a race) to blindly follow a particular direction (towards the wall), eventually we'll arrive at a "point of no return". Once this point has been reached, it doesn't matter if the brakes are applied, the engine is cut or the steering is adjusted...there will simply be insufficient time to avoid hitting the wall.
As improbable as it may sound, it is possible to see (and to change) probable futures. As long as those futures exist out in the distance, they remain as only probabilities. However, the closer that those probabilities get to the present, the greater the potential there is that they will become our reality. The probabilities that we choose to feed in the present and/or the past/present that we choose to ignore (both consciously and unconsciously, as the future moves towards us), are the potential realities that will end up having the highest probability of becoming our future.
The good news is that our individual futures (steered through the present) are much more maneuverable than the collective future is. And since the future of the individual and the future of the collective are intimately tied together, changing the course of one, also helps to change the course of the other one.
It is important to remember, however, that we are dealing with cycles of time that are both very short and very long in nature. Therefore, what we do today as individuals, can sometimes take a little while to have a noticeable or lasting impact on the collective (although this is not always the case). This is when various forms of social conditioning (i.e. a desire for instant satisfaction, instant results and instant gratification) can sometimes discourage us in our efforts towards pursuing and realizing positive change. Although it may not always be apparent, what we do today as individuals
does make a difference in the world (often far more than what we realize).
Transgenderism - I'm all for individual freedom and happiness as long as it exists within the context of the three basic tenets of moral law (please see the entry for "morality" for more info).
For reasons that are not yet fully understood, it seems that some people are born into this world with the wrong bodies. I don't claim to fully understand this issue coming from a non-gay perspective, but I do think that I had a chance to better understand this while I was living in the San Francisco Bay Area (which has a large gay/lesbian/transsexual population). What I can say from experience and research is that I think that there many different factors that can come into play here (for example genetic, environmental, physical, emotional and hormonal factors).
Personally, I would rather see people find love and happiness in their lives than be lonely, angry or depressed due to persecution. On an individual (non-religious) basis, I don't see where one's sexual preference violates the three tenets of moral law. However, where I do make a moral distinction is between the idea of sexual preference and transgenderism. In other words, when this issue turns away from individual sexual preference and moves into open experimentation (with same sex partners) that is being encouraged as part of some sort of larger agenda, then I think this is where this issue starts to enter into a question of morality (please see Discernment Part 2 for more info regarding this agenda).
For example, when Madonna and Britney Spears open-mouth-kissed on stage at the music awards (which was clearly scripted), I think that this was inappropriate because these "stars" were role models for many of the youth at the time. Similarly, when a former Disney star (and role model) like Miley Cyrus collects millions of young fans as her "alter ego" Hanna Montana and then suddenly switches gears and adopts a Thelema (do what thou wilt) attitude/lifestyle, this can (and will) encourage the same type of behavior in her fans. At a recent concert, Miley Cyrus encouraged her audience to kiss members of the same sex and then said she "hopes everyone is drunk and on loads of pills". This type of behavior is clearly different than any issues involving "personal sexual preference".
Just to reiterate, I am all for freedom of choice, individuality and artistic expression when it is done in a responsible manner and not as part of some type of directed social agenda. In order to understand what I mean by this, it is necessary to understand the music industry, Thelema and dark occultism (please see Corrupted Realities - Satanic Influence in Our Society, and Discernment Part One and Part Two for more info).
Is being gay or lesbian immoral? Personally, I don't think so. Is
encouraging people to become gay or transsexual (that normally wouldn't consider such a behavior) immoral? In my opinion it is (especially if it involves children or when it involves psychological manipulation, programming and conditioning that is
deliberately delivered via the media, music and entertainment industry).
Transhumanism - transhumanism is a broad concept that encompasses many different technologies. In short, transhumanism involves the artificial "evolution" of the human being via the direct implementation (or commingling) of artificial technology with natural biology (the physical body and/or the mind). Transhumanism includes both genetic (software based) and mechanical (hardware based) technologies of various types that may be delivered in a variety of different ways.
Some transhuman technologies have the potential to offer great benefits to humanity when they are used responsibly (for example pacemakers to help weak hearts, artificial limbs to replace lost limbs, implants to help the blind to see, etc). But what about when transhuman-modification occurs in the form of deliberate enhancements?
Some would suggest that genetic modification at the conception level (or even at the post-conception level) also offers many potential benefits to humanity (for example screening out or repairing defective genes). What about adding "bionic" implants or nano-technology to our existing biology in order to make us stronger and "more capable"? I think that this is when the transhumanism issue begins to get more complicated and it starts to enter into many different "gray" areas of ethics and morality.
It is possible that some forms of transhumanism could help to propel humanity forward. However, others could just as easily destroy humanity. Once we begin to modify genes and/or implant various nano-technologies (or other technology) within the human body, I think that we are opening up Pandora's Box. Why? Because the technology of humanity is progressing at a much faster rate than the wisdom and understanding of humanity is.
Science is beginning to experiment now with many different technologies that have the potential (if misused) to wipe out the entire human race, destroy the planet or even destroy the solar system (in ways that were not previously possible). We are reaching a point now where it will be possible to create new forms of life that could potentially impact the entire universe. There is a lot of responsibility associated with that kind of knowledge, power and potential.
If humanity does choose to adopt transhuman technologies (which is already happening right now), how will such technologies be delivered? In other words, will we be able to choose to opt out of them, or will they be delivered like vaccinations? There are some people in this world that like to think of themselves as "gods" (in politics, science, religion, medicine, etc). Unfortunately, these so-called "gods" often have their own agendas, which may or may not be in the best interests of the people around them.
Psychological programming and conditioning is being used right now on many different levels (in TV, movies, media, etc) to try and warm people up to various transhumanism technologies (usually without them even realizing it). The reality is that both covert and overt eugenics programs can be (and are being) used to deliver many different types of transhumanism technologies. Is this ethical, moral or right? If the human race (as we know it) is to survive, it is essential that these issues be looked at openly and honestly (without ignorance, fear, trickery or coercion).
Truth - there are some philosophical modes of thought that suggest that truth does not exist because the truth is something that cannot be truly known. In some respects, this is true (ha). However, as with many other spiritual and philosophical concepts today, this idea has been so "philosophized" (distorted) that it has morphed into a potentially dangerous way of thinking.
For example, this idea becomes particularly dangerous when it is used as a blanket statement (i.e. there is no such thing as the truth). It is also dangerous when it is coupled with the idea that there is no such thing as objective right and wrong, and/or there is no such thing as rights (please see the entry for "rights").
What is left over if we take away truth, "rights" and the ability to differentiate (judge/discern) between right and wrong? A perfect environment for pathological behavior, tyranny and slavery to flourish. In other words, we get the world that we live in today.
Actually there are many different kinds of truths. There are day-to-day (common) truths. There are eternal (universal) truths. And there are unknown (elusive) truths.
An example of a day-to-day (common) truth would be if someone placed their hand on a red-hot burner on the stove and they proclaimed it was hot. I imagine that most everyone that engaged in such an activity would agree to this truth (thus, making this somewhat of a "universal" truth as well).
An example of an eternal (universal) truth would be that we are spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience here on earth. People that have had NDEs (near death experiences), OBEs (out of body experiences) or memories of previous incarnations would probably agree that this is a truth. However, others might disagree, citing that this is merely a speculation and that it is currently not "provable" by way of scientific material fact (thus, making this somewhat of an "unknown" truth).
An example of an unknown (elusive) truth would be that "God" exists (God is in quotes here because there are so many different ideas about what God is). People that have had NDEs (or other "spiritual" experiences) would probably agree that this is a truth. However, others would probably say that there is no way to currently scientifically prove that such a thing exists.
In summary, the truth can be known. But the truth can also be unknown. If a truth is known to one person, but it is unknown to another person, does that truth still exist? If a "spiritual" (non-physical) truth is evaluated only through material (physical) examination, can such a truth ever be proven to be "materially" correct or true? Can one truth help to "prove" the existence of another truth? Or does each truth have to be proven independently of other truths? These are interesting questions to ponder.
Truth II (my truth and your truth) - is there such a thing as "my truth" and "your truth"? Is there such a thing as "the truth" (i.e. truth that is not malleable)? Is there any danger in creating "individualized" (personalized) truths?
In my view, the individualization of truth (my truth/your truth) can be potentially dangerous because it gives us the ability (rationalization) to change the truth so that it matches what our personal idea of the truth should be. For example, if a particular truth is uncomfortable to us, we can simply modify that truth so that it becomes more palatable ("my truth").
Uncomfortable truth is usually uncomfortable because it is a more complete truth. Partial truth, on the other hand, is usually more comfortable because it tends to exclude the uncomfortable details that comprise complete truth.
To help illustrate this idea, I'll use two examples (one that is benign, and another one that is not so benign):
Example One: A woman comes into the house soaking wet and covered in mud after working in the garden. Her husband asks what happen to her. She replies that it has been raining for the last twenty minutes. This is "her truth". Her husband, who has been sitting in front of the TV for the last hour, replies "are you sure that it rained, because I didn't see or hear any rain?" This is "his truth".
In the "reality" that was experienced by the woman, it rained. However, in the "reality" that was experienced by her husband, it didn't rain. Are these really two different truths? Or are they two different perceptions that are based on a single truth?
Example Two: Two planes crash into the Twin Towers in New York and another one hits the Pentagon. Three buildings collapse at freefall speed (at the World Trade Center complex) and a mysterious hole is punched in the Pentagon building (that doesn't appear to match the reports of a plane hitting the building).
Five percent of the population immediately sees numerous discrepancies in the "official story" while the other ninety-five percent of the population accepts the story at face value (as reported by the mainstream media). In the years following these events, concrete scientific evidence is presented that suggests that the three WTC buildings (the twin towers and building 7) could not have fallen in the way that they did based solely on the damage that was sustained to them by the planes and the fires. Still many people refuse to see or hear the truth.
In this case, two sets of truth (my truth and your truth) were created based on perception and "evidence" (evidence that was accepted or rejected based on which "truth" was more acceptable or comfortable to the person involved). Which truth is correct? Is it the "official" truth? The popular truth? The unpopular truth? The comfortable truth? The uncomfortable truth? Can both "truths" (my truth/your truth) be correct?
Are there any dangers or consequences in believing one "truth" over another "truth"? What has happen in the world since September 11, 2001?
In summary, when reality is built upon a foundation of "relative" or comfortable truth (acceptable lies), it will inevitably and eventually collapse under the weight of its own corruption. However, when reality is built upon truth (arrived at via deduction, discernment, observation, understanding, awareness and reasoning), it will stand strong and flourish.
Unconditional Love - the idea of unconditional love is a concept that is often corrupted and used by the system, for the benefit of the system. Unconditional love does not mean unconditional acceptance (of everything). Love helps to create a strong bond between all. However, blind acceptance, blind support, blind forgiveness and blind consent are the things that help to break the bonds of love.
Vampire - a vampire may be described as any entity that feeds off of the physical, emotional and spiritual energy of sentient beings with or without their permission. Vampires gain permission in many different ways including both active and passive consent. Vampires, parasites and "gods" often share similar traits. Vampire entities can be human or non-human (corporations, governments, corrupted religions, financial systems, politicians, celebrities, people or other entities).
We - It is rather synchronistic that this word ended up being the last one on the list. "We" is probably the one word that has created the most controversy in this whole series and it is also the one that has probably alienated the most people. However, it is also the word that perhaps best sums up all of the concepts that have been discussed within this entire series.
"We" is the nut that exists within the shell after it has been broken open. "We" is also what remains when all the layers of the onion have been peeled back. And, like a peeled onion, "we" is a word that often brings tears to the eyes of the beholder. For when all the layers of the onion are finally peeled back, the only thing that remains is a smaller part of the very same onion.
The ego doesn't like the word "we" because it encourages us to look more closely at ourselves and examine the role that each of us may be playing in creating and/or sustaining the corrupt system that we live in. The three main roles that people usually play within the system are:
There is also fourth role that people play, however this is a road that, for the most part, is seldom understood.
The ego is much more comfortable with the word "you" and with pointing fingers somewhere outside of itself (to the left or to the right, to the black or to the white, to the Muslim or to the Christian, to the male or to the female, to the west or to the east, to the republican or to the democrat, to the conservative or to the liberal, etc).
The system usually gives us two distinct options to choose from in any given situation. However, in reality, there are actually three main options to choose from:
Two of these options are external to us, and one is them is internal. Option 1 and option 2 are by far the most popular "choices" (manufactured options). Few, however, are willing to freely choose the 3rd way (the internal option or the fourth role that people can play). Why? Because this is the darkest, scariest and loneliest path of all. However, paradoxically, it is also the only path that leads to true enlightenment.
Why do the "rulers" of this world actively encourage the "System of Two"? Because they know that the ego will usually choose the way which hides the true path or Middle Way (the one that leads us away from the ego and towards true awareness and understanding).
The ego knows that true and lasting positive change (internal and external) usually requires very hard work and some significant personal sacrifice. But the ego does not want to give up any of its own personal comfort. Therefore, as long as the system gives the ego what it desires, the ego will continue to help support and perpetuate the corrupt system that feeds it. The end result? The ego is happy. The system is happy. And the spirit (of the individual and of the planet) is dis-eased.
Within the two letter word "we" is actually a "key" to the secret of the universe. Sound implausible? Read on...
We = (23 + 5) = 28 = (2+8) = 10
W = 23 =
(2+3) = 5
E = 5 (interestingly, "E" turned on its side is also "W", and "M", as well as the symbol for "sum")
Key = (11+5+25) = 41 = (4+1) = 5
Five = (6+9+22+5) = 42 = the Secret of the Universe
Me + We and We + Me = Unity
Our time here on Earth begins within the darkness of the womb (Yin or 0). When we are born, we come out into the light (Yang or 1). Thus, life begins at 01. As we progress through life, we experience and learn many different things as we travel through each of the other numbers (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7), until we begin to approach the number 8.
The transition from 7 to 8 represents the first gate. (
Seven = 19+5+22+5+14 = 65 = (6+5) = 11 (the gate).
Eight is an interesting number in that it is represented as two "o"s (polarities) connected together at One point. It is not a coincidence that eight is also the symbol for infinity (the infinite connection/relationship that exists between two polarities).
Eight (in its upright position) could also be seen as a representation of time as it moves from one place to another place. Or, eight could be seen as consciousness as it experiences one realm and then slowly moves into another realm. The middle point of eight could be seen as the moment when
one realizes that we exist simultaneously both inside of time and also outside of time, within the physical realm and also outside of the physical realm, as one and also as
What happens when one moves past eight? We arrive at nine which is the ultimate expression of One. Nine plus itself always returns to nine. And nine times any other number always returns to nine.
Nine equals 333
Three = (20+8+18+5+5) = 56 = (5+6) = 11
11+11+11 = 33
Three Three = 11:11 which is a representation of the second gate (or the transition from 9 to 10)
Eleven represents the two pillars, the two polarities and the gate. If you turn the first three around in 33 (to represent the opposite polarity) and then move them together, it forms the shape of the number eight.
Interestingly, eleven also equals nine (eleven = 5+12+5+22+5+14 = 63 = 9). And nine equals six (nine = 14+9+14+5 = 42 = 6). Six is the inverse of nine (as above, so below; as within, so without).
In a nut-shell:
Understanding the numbers and the math is not as important as understanding what they represent. What concepts do the numbers and the math represent?
