Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye. – Bill Hicks
What do you believe? And from where did it come? All which we believe may indeed depend upon our environment in which we grew up with addition to whether we rejected or accepted that environment, of which has the potential to either project us further into its embrace, or outright cause us to flee; thus, by fleeing we are introduced into another entire arena of world-views and philosophies.
This is not to suggest that indoctrination alone is automatically negative. In fact, positive indoctrination for the populace, and especially the youth, can have an overall positive effect upon that society. This can of course be undermined and co-opted in attempts render the foundation lawless, but that is not the big point. In the larger view, indoctrination alone is not necessarily negative. No matter what worldview you may currently hold, it is likely still deeply rooted in a foundation long established before your time and serves to influence your thinking about reality. We still derive much of our worldviews from already existing sources, of which were later added upon from even older worldviews. Nothing is original and no new thing resides under the sun.
In twenty-first century, as our excessive media presence is ever increasing, where does the populace often receive its foundational views? Books are clearly not where the everyday layman receives them. It is, most assuredly, through some form of never-ending media. The impact media has on the populace is extreme and has an outpouring of real-life consequences. Imagery alone, along with sad or intense background music, with just the right tonality and well-crafted dialogue, can influence a million gullible minds to operate as instructed.
Beta And Alpha States Of The Brain
Indoctrination starts young in twenty-first century America. TV is not the only source of social programming, for the internet has allowed a vast array of further complexities of disorder and confusion to pry through the minds of the consumer. Corporations are now targeting the young far more ruthlessly than in any time prior to the present. The American Psychology Associations has this to say:
These two trends — the growth in advertising channels reaching children and the privatization of children’s media use — have resulted in a dramatic increase in advertising directly intended for the eyes and ears of children. It is estimated that advertisers spend more than $12 billion per year to reach the youth market and that children view more than 40,000 commercials each year. These figures represent dramatic increases over those from the 1970s.
It does not require an in-depth analysis to observe and comprehend the heights of capitalism’s pursuit of targeting the consumer from childhood, into teenhood and further into adulthood. From toys and cheap gimmicks, to music and rebellious social trends, to politics and religious doctrines or social doctrines. It is vitally important, given the shifting moral zeitgeist of American culture and morality, that parents are keen in shielding their offspring from such propaganda and programming if they desire to remove them from the self-destructive weights of consumerism and moral decay, or even moral relativism which end results are conflict if it resides within a single culture that has competition in moral doctrine.
There are two states to consider when observing media, whether TV or internet. There is the Beta state and the Alpha state. Let us examine these two functions of the brain in regards to media.
Beta (12-30Hz): Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning. As you go about your daily activities you are at Beta. Although important for effectively functioning in everyday life, higher Beta levels translate into stress, anxiety and restlessness. With the majority of adults primarily operating at Beta during their waking hours it is little wonder that stress is today’s most common health problem. The voice of Beta is the little nagging chatterbox of your inner critic, which becomes louder and more relentless the higher you go in the range.
To simplify, in the context of programming media: most everyday laymen do not operate in this mode. They do not pick apart the respective plots of regurgitated fiction, examine key words in the lines of dialogue or consider anything worth immense critique when engaging a favorite bourgeois celebrity or prized politicians and the doctrines they press out onto the populace. They passively digest it, which ties into the next point.
Alpha (7.5-12Hz): Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation with the eyes usually closed and while day-dreaming. The relaxed detached awareness achieved during light meditation is characteristic of Alpha and is optimal for programming your mind for success. Alpha heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration. It lies at the base of your conscious awareness and is the gateway to your subconscious mind. The renowned Silva Method by Jose Silva is premised on the power of Alpha. The voice of Alpha is your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz.
Most Americans are in a state of Alpha when engaging TV programming or internet entertainment. They slip into a trance-like state while their subconscious is fed information, of which may hold no roots in reality. This makes things far easier for the media and elite classes to sway public opinion.
An example: The New York Times ran a piece before election day/night that Hilary Clinton had somewhere around 89-90% chance of winning. That is an extraordinary claim. I cannot recall the news station which aired it, but a young man seemed dispossessed by President Trump’s victory and referred back to that New York Times article, which clearly led him astray. That alone was another defining moment of how manipulative media operates among the herd.
The US 2016 election cycle marks a wonderful examination into the minds of the masses. It had the potential to cause great strife and division not only among the entire population, but within families themselves. Many left-leaning folks thought an uproar in a far-right regime was nearing the horizon, yet the other side saw hope and opportunity to re-establish control of the border, along with re-affirming law and order. The right-leaning folks also saw an idol to emulate and thus bought into the Reagan era Make America Great Again slogan despite the many flaws with the slogan, for if it was actually deeply investigated and they discovered the raw realities of how and why the country was considered great to begin with, it would induce great distress and they’d actually find common ground among liberal-minded folks in regards to anti-tribal sentiments.
The media class was absolute in its insolent behavior toward the public. One side projected such outrageous claims or subtle hints of fiction mixed in with fact, yet the other had moments of glorification of a single man as if he sincerely could do no wrong. The two-party delusion was extreme this election cycle. If anything came if it, it was the raw spitting reality we no longer share a true common bond. And perhaps it’s coming to an end.
Here is a brief excerpt from L. Wolf entitled How The Media Brainwash You:
William Sargant, wrote of this “soft brainwashing” in his 1957 book, Battle for the Mind: “Various types of belief can be implanted in many people, after brain function has been sufficiently disturbed by accidentally or deliberately induced fear, anger or excitement. Of the results caused by such disturbances, the most common one is temporarily impaired judgment and heightened suggestibility. Its various group manifestations are sometimes classed under the heading of ‘herd instinct,’ and appear most spectacularly in wartime, during severe epidemics, and in all similar periods of common danger, which increase anxiety and so individual and mass suggestibility.”
Translated for the layman: Sargant tells us that if you can frighten a person enough, or otherwise keep him in a state of anxiety, he or she becomes an “easy mark” for someone who might want to alter his or her belief structure. The operative concept here is the deliberate creation of a state of anxiety; in “soft brainwashing,” rather than accomplishing this through torture, drugging, etc., it is done through a manipulation of social circumstances, as well as the individual’s perceptions of those circumstances, with the intent of inducing a fear- dominated, and highly predictable response to those events. That response can be further controlled through regulation of the intensity of the anxiety-creating tension, and alternately, regulating the ability of the targeted individual or group of individuals to seek release from that tension.
Fear was the ultimate tool for the media class this past election cycle. Indeed it served as a swift manipulator, along with the celebrity culture adding fuel to fire. Perhaps this causes the obvious to jump out at you from the screen. Even now, as you read this content, are you putting into question every detail of what is being stated? It can be difficult in a society as fast-paced as America. In fact, the entire Western world appears to be caught in this ever-increasing volume of voices through some tone and form of media.
Politics aside, it is reasonable to suggest popular media outlets and big Hollywood blockbusters also serve as programming minds down certain avenues of spirituality. Have you noticed how black magic(k) and witchcraft has been heavily heightened over the past few years? Light is becoming the grumpy old bigot while the follow-your-heart mentality of rule-breakers like Harry Potter (and Disney films as well) spills over into the actual minds of the populace and is twisting their imaginations with real-life manifestations. Witchcraft and things related are commonplace. Regardless of how you view such practices, it suits well as we examine this next section.
Folklore And Strange Mystery
Americans may be considered as genuinely dangerous in their everyday delusions. The mere questioning of certain taboos can cause you either to be ostracized or physically assaulted. Many Americans are now easily persuaded that alien life (like the ET kind) actually exist and the potential for an alien invasion is very real. Hollywood has ruthlessly capitalized on this theme of alien invasion and all mankind needing to come together as a single unit or face destruction.
In 1987 before the United Nations a statement about an outside threat which could unite us together was made by Ronald Reagan:
“Perhaps we need some outside universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”
Fathom that. It is no longer outlandish to suggest the government could not indeed craft a well-executed false-flag of some outside invasion. In fact, as strange as it is say, it’s most certainly within the realm of possibilities. Videos can now be manipulated to appear as if someone is saying something when, in reality, it is manipulated video and audio. And the masses are glued to their screen, whether TV or otherwise. The digital world projects reality and that is the source of truth.
In the Library Of Congress we find an analysis of the relationship between aliens and American culture:
In the 1940s and 50s reports of “flying saucers” became an American cultural phenomena. Sightings of strange objects in the sky became the raw materials for Hollywood to present visions of potential threats. Posters for films, like Earth vs. the Flying Saucers from 1956 illustrate these fears. Connected to ongoing ideas about life on the Moon, the canals on Mars, and ideas about Martian Civilizations, flying saucers have come to represent the hopes and fears of the modern world.
Many Americans believe in extraterrestrial life, as in, highly evolved specimens far more advanced than mankind, or are some other invention by the Creator. And Hollywood has now hijacked the imaginations of the masses by a steady outpouring of alien-themed entertainment. Is ET real? What’s the evidence? In truth, if you’ve had serious conversations with folks who have had these sorts of encounters involving abduction, it may be they really had the experience but misinterpret what actually occurred.
Did you know that the folklore of fairytales used to be known for also abducting people? Yes, this is fact. The link to consider now is if these raw human experiences are indeed real, and to what is the origin and cause?
In a Conspiracy Archive it goes in to this subject of aliens and fairy abduction:
But another good theory which never gets as much press is that which says UFOs may, in fact, be right here from earth.
Instead of being Extraterrestrials, UFO aliens might be Ultraterrestrials — a species that has always been here, which evolved on earth along with homo sapiens, but which represents a species far superior.
This suggest an aspect of the spiritual realm. I’ve personally known those who witnessed these alien-like lights dancing above their house, several dancing about the air, then coming together into a single unit and taking off into the night. They had an additional witness, which rules out hallucinations. This activity took place over a house which also had demonic activity and the previous owner was known for indulging in pornography. Is this spiritual? If so, is Hollywood acting as a tool for distraction?
The article goes on to state:
The Bible is filled with references to supernatural creatures, including giants, “wheels” flying in the sky out of which incredible creatures emerge, and more.
But references to flying disks were recorded centuries before the texts of the Bible. Cave drawings dating to 30,000 B.C. depict numerous drawings of disks floating around in the sky, remarkably similar to modern UFO photographs.
Some maverick UFO investigators have pointed out the amazing similarities of modern UFO aliens to that of elves, fairies and the various “little people” famous in the folklore of many cultures.
Fairies are well known for kidnapping people, the same irritating habit UFO aliens have. People who are abducted report incidents of missing time, a phenomenon very similar to time lapses reported by people taken to and returned from “fairyland”.
Fairies, like modern aliens, tend to be diminutive creatures with large magical eyes. Many reports of alien abduction even include “power rods” used to paralyze abductees, just as fairies wield “magic wands”.
One of the most interesting comparisons between aliens and fairies is that both are interested in stealing babies. One of the most common fairy activities is swiping babies from cribs, and sometimes replacing them with a false double, or “changeling” as they are sometimes called.
The world around us begs us to ask the question about these mysteries and why we are here on Earth. What Americans call aliens many Muslims call jinn, or demons. We may see close to the same thing, yet we interpret it differently. I once attempted to conjure the wisdom of demons and had a raw experience as its presence manifested thickly into my environment and came over me. Where can one find the answers in a world doused in confusion about why we are rather than are not?
Attempting to see reality as it is, and avoiding delusion or far-out escapism, seems immensely complex with layers upon layers of sifting through fact and fiction. But what if that’s the point? Confusion. Is there a mystery to be unveiled?
Everyday someone somewhere is priming venerable minds to what they perceive as truth, as reality in raw and unfiltered form. And Americans are holding steadfast to further acceptance of what either the elite circles push out or whatever social media doctrine of morality is trending. Others simply have no idea as to anything about anything because they do not engage in critical thought or analysis, as many more are apathetic about the subject entirely.
If there is a point to our existence, whether or not you are mentally well enough to comprehend it, where is it found? The capitalism of ideals, worldviews and spiritual doctrines are at a heightened state. Where lies the unveiling of ultimate mystery in the Sea of Babylon?
