Everything’s opposite. Your nose runs while your feet smell. We park in the drive-way and drive on the park-way. We recite at a play, and play at the recital. We ship shipments by car and send cargo by ship.
Opposite Day – Andrew Bird – The Mysterious Production of Eggs (4:31)
We’ve been tricked. Vaccines cause dis-ease, they don’t protect you. Mammograms are carcinogenic. Fate, it seems, is not without its sense of irony. Chemotherapy and radiation kill, not the cancer. Hand sanitizers makes us sick, not the germs. Liberals oppose freedom, and progressives hold us back.
Everything we think we know to be true simply isn’t. At least most of it. It’s a big charade perpetuated by the shadow government. It’s the epistemological veil of deception we accept as fact. It is the world that has been pulled over our eyes to blind us from the truth.
“Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information.” -Michael Ellner
“This is where we are at right now, as a whole. No one is left out of the loop. We are experiencing a reality based on a thin veneer of lies and illusions. A world where greed is our God and wisdom is sin, where division is key and unity is fantasy, where the ego-driven cleverness of the mind is praised, rather than the intelligence of the heart.” -Bill Hicks
The more obvious the conclusion appears, the less investigation performed, and the more widely accepted a theory is, the less evidence required to support it.
Deep down, we know the truth. It’s just too painful to admit. And because of this visceral rejection to a frightening reality, we trick ourselves to acquiesce in a comfortable bubble of ignorance.
As Cypher from the Matrix Trilogy so aptly put it, ignorance is bliss. Accept it’s not, not even close. Maybe it seems like it at first, but living a lie eventually catches up to you.
I had somebody say the other night, “You know you’re making me really uncomfortable.” Good. Good. If you came here to be comfortable then I hope to disappoint you. I think comfort is part of our problem. It’s amazing how directly proportionate comfort is to stupidity, or willful ignorance. Some of the dumbest people on the planet are Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge, or Stanford graduates, willfully ignorant, because they know enough to know that if they speak the truth about a number of subjects, it ain’t good for their career. So they remain willfully ignorant, although they’re completely capable of understanding these things. -Ken O’Keefe
The victors of the war write the his-story books, and these victors will never be asked if they told the truth. A particularly salient example is the distorted history of WWII, and the man much of the world beLieves to be the most evil person to have ever lived.
What if the crimes committed by the “Axis of Evil” were to pale in comparison to the crimes committed by the Allied forces? What if they lied to us completely? Would that not follow the 180° degree rule of obfuscation?
The truth fears no investigation
But why would the dark forces which rule our world polarize the truth to such an exaggerated degree? Surely telling a 90° half-truth would be more effective and reach a larger, more susceptible audience? Well, not exactly. We ourselves are used to telling small white lies, while the Big Lie is foreign. And as the Kybalion teaches us, everything is dual, so it’d be a lot easier to mask a truth with the polar opposite un-truth.
I might be able to convince a man with bad vision that when I flipped his coin it landed on tails. But i’ll never be able to convince him that it landed on its side. This is the 180° rule of truth obfuscation that the ruling elite use with great success. We simply don’t suspect it, and as a result, the Big Lie more easily cements itself into the foundation of the collective unconscious.
“History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there.” – George Santayana
“Nothing in this world, nothing, works the way you think it does. There’s always more to the story. Banks do not loan money, governments are not empowered to protect you, the police department is not there to serve you, institutions of higher learning, colleges and educational institutes, are not there to educate you. The entire superstructure of civilization in the Western world is a combination of brilliantly put together and well-planned schemes to direct the minds of the people in such a way as to serve their masters.” -Jordan Maxwell
“You are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Into a prison that you cannot taste or see or touch. A prison for your mind. –Morpheus
“I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth, if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and when they have woven, threat by thread, into the fabric of their lives.” –Leo Tolstoy
One of the problems we have is we suffer from cognitive dissonance. When a new truth comes along, it’s not like we can just accept it without a fight. We all harbor an internal rejection to newfound truths. It’s the ego, at least in part.
We don’t want to admit we were wrong, but more importantly, we don’t want to realize that our whole lives were built upon a factory of lies. It’s painful in the short term. But nothing can compare the agony and struggle we face when we are blinded by the veil of deception day after day.
“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” -George Orwell
“Truth is undoubtedly the sort of error that cannot be refuted because it was hardened into an unalterable form in the long baking process of history” -Michel Foucault
“The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.” -Niels Bohr
“A person hears only what they understand.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“The best slave is the one who thinks he is free.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the Truth.” -Marcus Aurelius
“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.” ― George Orwell
The moral of the story is, we should be open to the possibility of being wrong, even if we’re positive we’re right. Because when it comes to most subjects, especially those that are too sacrosanct to even question, we’ll often find that it’s these very paradigms that prove to be a complete 180° degree perversion of the truth.
