The Label Machine
I had an opportunity the other day to listen to an interesting roundtable discussion involving a number of researchers who were examining various approaches that might be used to help address and/or fix the mess that the human race is currently in. During this discussion, there were quite a few opinions and perspectives that were shared, as well as many good thoughts and ideas on a variety of subjects.
The participants in this particular roundtable were introduced as people belonging to (or associated) with certain groups, belief systems or ideologies. This of course is a very common and customary practice of introduction and identification that is used throughout our society today. But what does this really accomplish?
For the speakers and the listeners (of the roundtable) who might be unfamiliar with these specific labels, it doesn't necessarily create an issue. However, for others who may have previously encountered various views in association with such labels, it opens up the door to unfounded prejudices, rejections and dismissals...before the speaker has even had a chance to make his or her initial point(s). The next time that (new) listeners hear those labels again, they will likely associate that label with the last speaker who was identified by such a label (thereby creating a situation of preemptive acceptance or rejection of certain ideas once again). In other words, it helps to create an atmosphere where the label sometimes does the talking, instead of the individual.
As humans, we often have a tendency to approach problems from the top down instead of from the bottom up. For example, we often begin with the premise that we belong to a certain group or ideology which is presumed to be right and correct. Therefore, by default, any opposing ideology is usually assumed to be incorrect and void of useful or important information. We see this type of situation occur quite frequently in politics (left, right, conservative, liberal), in religion (Christian, Muslim, East, West), in race (black, white, yellow, red), in socioeconomic ideologies (Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, etc), in sports “divisions” (American, National, East, West, Central) and so on.
Why is our “system” set up this way? The simple answer is to promote division and polarization among the people. A divided population is much easier to control than a united or unified one.
What if we were to approach social/political/economic issues from a bottom-up perspective, instead of a top-down view? In other words, what if we looked at these issues with the simple idea that we are all human beings first, and that we all have common desires and needs such as life, liberty, love, freedom and happiness?
Programming and Conditioning
Social programming and conditioning (learned mostly via TV) teaches us to categorize and divide people into neat little packages or groups. Unfortunately, this system of categorization doesn't seem to have any real methodology to it. In fact, many times the conclusions that are reached seem to be based more on generalizations or inferences (even something as insignificant as a single statement or observation), rather than on logical deductions, actual facts or real history. The end result is that valuable opinions and individual contributions often get dismissed or overshadowed via labels and preconceived or assumed associations with certain group memberships...whether they actually exist or not.
There are good and bad people within every group or organization. There are aware and informed people, and there are conditioned/programmed/misguided people. There are loving people, and there are hateful people. There are protagonists, and there are antagonists. There are truthful/sincere people, and there are dishonest/deceitful people.
Labels and generalizations usually serve to confuse and complicate issues, rather than simplify them. They open the door for entire philosophies to be thrown out based upon the opinions of one person/agent or one corrupted (or novel) idea within a body of otherwise good, accepted or valuable information. It's very similar to the concept of the baby getting mistakenly thrown out with the bathwater. The frequency in which this happens today is rather alarming. Perhaps even more disturbing, is the realization that this system was specifically created in order to take advantage of and manipulate the usually benign human desires/needs of identity and belonging and warp them into something that creates division and conflict.
A few examples involving social programming, negative associations (typically programmed) and throwing the baby out with the bathwater include...
- Love -
Love (as a universal concept) has often been associated with such controversial groups as “hippies” and the New Age movement. Since these groups (labels) have traditionally included many non-traditional philosophies, practices and beliefs, they have subsequently been criticized and chastised by the government, established religions, the mainstream media and the alternative research community. This “bad press” has led to the idea that those suggesting peace and love must be closet hippies or secret proponents of the New Age movement. As a result, love has been “tainted” simply because of an association with what some people might perceive to be alternate or misguided philosophies.(1)
It has almost gotten to the point where love has become a taboo word in our culture today...something that is not to be spoken in public for fear of being ridiculed (unless of course it is used to express affection towards material possessions...I love my car, I love my tablet, I love my smartphone, I love my new clothes, etc). If we take a look around the world, what do we see? War, hate and intolerance...or in other words, inverted ideas of love.
If war, hate and intolerance are a symptoms of the disease, is it unreasonable to assume that love might be part of the answer? Why is humanity constantly steered away from love and towards more destructive behaviors that are the inverse or reverse of love?
- Frequency/Harmonic Vibration -
Frequency and harmonic vibration are two very important concepts to understand because they represent two key/core components of the (often unseen) control grid which is used to manipulate and control the general population of Earth. Frequency and harmonic vibration also represent key aspects of the New Age philosophy as well. Therefore, these concepts are sometimes ridiculed (much like love) as some type of New Age mumbo jumbo by those who may be unfamiliar with these concepts (please see footnotes 1 & 2).
When we turn on the TV or open a newspaper, what do we see? Reports of terrorism threats, school shootings, war, murder, violence, pandemic scares, seasonal flu scares, financial worries, scandal. This is “information terrorism” created by the mainstream media (and their controllers) to subdue and control the population. It is designed to keep us locked up in a very narrow view of reality by placing us in a perpetual state of fear, unease, conflict and confusion so that we are blinded to seeing what exists outside of the system. It keeps us swimming in a soup of manufactured chaos, instead of learning to recognize the real mechanisms which are being used to control us.
The opposite of this negatively aligned/manufactured control system is love, peace, contentment and increased levels of awareness and expanded states of consciousness/understanding. The controllers cannot control a population that is knowledgeable, aware, at peace with themselves/others and is in a state of expanding consciousness and understanding.
Low harmonic vibration = fear and confinement (and alignment with some not so friendly non-human entities). High harmonic vibration = freedom and expanded states of consciousness/awareness that transcend the artificial/physical confines of our virtual prison (the control grid). High harmonic vibration represents the path back to our true/higher selves.
- Environmentalism -
Individuals and organizations who express concern regarding the environment have often been portrayed as extremists by the mainstream media and the established political system. In some cases, environmentalists have been referred to as “job killers”, Eco-terrorists and anarchists.
Recently, an obscure political/environmental initiative (known as Agenda 21) has come to the attention of the general public. This initiative has been (correctly) condemned as a ploy/scheme that was created by the ruling elite to enable the realization of various profit and control-motivated agendas (i.e. further access to natural resources, additional taxation and a plan drive people off their land and herd them into large cities where they can be more easily manipulated and controlled).
As a result of this increased news coverage, environmentalists are now sometimes attacked on both fronts (mainstream and alternative). There are some so-called “Eco-terrorists” that do exist, but they mostly over-hyped by the media in order to demonize the environmental movement as a whole. In fact, there are many responsible, informed and concerned citizens out there who have a very good understanding of the environmental threats that we are facing. However, many times now these groups and individuals are erroneously getting bunched into generalized labels such as job killers or Eco-terrorists (on the corporate/political side), and secret agents/proponents of Agenda 21/New World Order (on the alternative side).
Those at the top have a very specific (if not redundant) strategy that they follow...confuse, divide and rule/conquer. The ruling elite understand that a certain portion of the population can always be manipulated...sometimes rather easily via something as simple as short/effective sound bytes. If we aren't careful in how we apprach things, nature and the environment may end up losing on both fronts as those that value and wish to protect nature are labeled as threats by both sides.
The ruling elite have a “wide angle view" of things (sometimes gleaned from non-traditional sources) which allows them to move much of the peopulation below them around almost like Chess pieces on a Chess board. Fortunately, some of this is changing now as more and more people begin to wake up. However, the tactics of the controllers are rarely just one level deep...and what appears on the surface may not always be the real agenda, but simply a diversionary tactic instead.(3)
Why is their so much confusion regarding the environment? As previously stated, much of this has to do with control, greed and profit motives. However, the motives actually go much deeper than this, as discussed in Part 22 (Nested Realities).
Below is a short summary of some of the “other” motives that are related to the control of nature and the environment (as historically perpetuated by the Church and State).
Nature has been targeted by both the Church and the State at various times throughout history. A love and reverence of nature represents a significant threat to the control/power/profit structure of both the Church and the State. Nature not only offers vast opportunities for material riches (resources) for the elite, but it also offers the greatest treasure of all to the people...freedom, true spiritual enlightenment and the keys to the universe. Those at the very highest levels of the control grid (both political and religious) have always understood the threat that nature poses to maintaining their power and control.
The true power of the Church lies mainly within it’s centralized/urban-based organizational structure. As such, the Church has historically encouraged people to adopt an urban way of life and discouraged the more traditional rural way of life. Those that did not accept this Church doctrine were often labeled as Heathens and evil Pagans. Dissenters were considered to be enemies of the Church and labeled as agents of the devil. To help quell dissent, the Church (and State) embarked on many dark crusades against various people and cultures who associated themselves with nature and Earth-based belief systems. These “enemies of the Church” were systematically targeted, hunted down, tortured and killed (i.e. shamanistic cultures, indigenous peoples, Pagan cultures, “witches”, etc).
Nature holds the key to everything. This is why we have seen such a concentrated effort (throughout history) to lead people away/astray from the knowledge, wisdom and secrets contained within it. It is also why we see an ongoing war being waged by the Church and State in an effort to eliminate those people and cultures that posses the secret knowledge regarding the true path to freedom and spiritual enlightenment.
The concepts that were cited above are just a few examples of how labels, associations and generalizations can be effectively used by the control system to divide, confuse and rule/conquer the people. The most important information is often hidden from the general population by simply associating it with some obscure, alternate, evil or taboo group/label, philosophy or belief system...thereby discouraging people from seeking out that information and gaining an understanding of the wisdom contained within it.
When we apply labels to ourselves or to others, it opens the door for immediate rejection and dismissal of that person based on preconceived beliefs...before an opinion is even expressed. Sometimes this is a conscious thought process, but most often it is a subconscious (unrealized) process resulting from a lifetime of subliminal programming and conditioning.
This article is actually a review of some previous segments as well as an introduction to the next segment which will be a further examination of these concepts and another look at who/what actually lies behind the curtain of this control grid. I believe that this is critical information to understand because without it, we will forever be manipulated and unknowingly subjected to the influences of the puppet masters above us who use very powerful occult knowledge in such a way that puts the general public at a great disadvantage in their efforts to try and move forward and rise above/beyond this control grid.
(1) This is not an attempt to discredit or be critical of New Age philosophies or it's followers. I think that the New Age movement has consolidated some of the most important and beneficial wisdom/philosophies from around the world. However, it has also been tainted, corrupted and hijacked in much the same way as the other major religions have. In this case, I believe that certain elements were introduced as a Trojan horse so that they could later be exploited in an attempt to try and control it's followers and, perhaps more importantly, discredit the bulk of the beneficial information contained within this philosophy (via various types of labeling and/or negative associations with the planted Trojan horse elements).
(2) The term “frequency” (as it applies to humans) is often discussed in multiple contexts which can sometimes confuse the meaning of the word. For example, in reference to brainwave frequency, a lower frequency (Theta state) of around 4-7Hz is typically associated with deep meditative states, higher states of consciousness, access to the subconscious mind, profound states of learning and healing, out-of-body experiences, access to the divine, etc. Paradoxically, this low frequency brain state brings about higher states of consciousness, which in turn help to create higher frequencies (in the physical body) which can lead to alternate physical states of being (higher frequency = more energetic/less physical).
(3) I do not wish to over-complicate things, however as many are aware the powers that be are beginning to put their plans into over-drive now. Therefore, I think that it is very important during these times to periodically take a step back and look at things through the same “wide angle lens” that the controllers are using in order to maintain a good overall perspective of the grand plan as it relates to the smaller elements/pieces within it.
