Propaganda: Mind Manipulation & Manufacturing Consent

Propaganda, known today euphemistically as ‘public relations’, is the manufacturing of consent.  It’s the distortion of information to suit a particular agenda.  Along with it’s ‘proper’ use comes the ability to control the masses, to mold the collective mind. Propaganda is all pervasive in our society and culture.  We have trouble discerning what information is real and what is not.  It’s become increasingly difficult to tell the truth from the lies, even with the power of the internet. Time has given these mind manipulators lots of practice to hone their skills.  It’s important to realize the magnitude of manipulation that is being perpetrated against mankind.  Things are not what they seem. The facts have been twisted and used against us and for private interests.  What we think we know is engineered by these shadow figures, this invisible government that hovers over us, controlling our every seemingly…

Epistemologically What Do We ‘Know’?

spiral pattern colors

What we know as truth is largely determined by the opinions of our peers, and not actual scientific evidence like you would think. We so desperately strive to fit in and feel loved in a society that we surrender common sense and intuition; we bandwagon the group mind. We give up common sense for reassurance.  We trust the experts.  We see what we’ve been taught to see.  We know what we’re taught to know. A cultural hypnosis dissuades us from finding the Universal Truth.  We believe things because everyone else believes them, not because we know them to be true personally. What do we really know? What is the truth? How do we separate what we truly know and what we think we truly know? Can we rely on the supposed facts purported by the experts – whose factual volatility is proven time after time- or should…

Placebo, Nocebo, You Know?

chakra man placebo

We’ve all heard of the placebo effect, but many are completely ignorant of it’s polar opposite, the nocebo effect. Instead of getting better from a sugar pill as in the placebo, the nocebo is the exact opposite.  Your health deteriorates because you were told it would. For example a witch doctor might cast a spell on somebody and because of this, they die.  Their death would not be a result of any bodily impairment or black magic,  but is due to the nocebo.  Your mind convinces your body of something, and your body believes it and acts accordingly. “The body cannot live without the mind” – Morpheus Nocebo comes from the Latin word nocere which means ‘to harm’. Placebo is Latin for placere “to please”. “The medical establishment has been proving that the body can heal itself for over 50 years. We call it “the placebo effect,” and…

Cancer: No luck involved

Recently an article surfaced in the mainstream media about how cancer is just bad luck.  “Sometimes there just isn’t a good explanation for a cancer diagnosis other than random bad luck”, they claim.  As we will see this couldn’t be further from the truth.  Cancer has everything to do with the way we live our lives.  When we get cancer it’s not because of bad luck, it’s because of bad diet and a poisoned mind. Over the years cancer rates have increased exponentially. There have been theories that this only appears this way due to improved methods of detection. These theories have been thoroughly debunked. I shouldn’t have to convince anyone that more and more people are getting cancer, all you have to do is look around.  Here’s an article that suggests that cancer cases are expected to soar by 70% over the next 20…

Vaccines: Did They Really Save Us From Dis-ease?

vaccines didn't save us

Most people believe that vaccines saved us from deadly diseases. We actually don’t have any scientific evidence to prove this, but nevertheless we still believe this is the case.  It would be unethical to conduct a double-blind, placebo controlled study to prove the efficacy of vaccines since we already ostensibly know they work and wouldn’t want to put innocent children (the control group) at risk of disease. Jump right to the evidence There is no scientific evidence to show that vaccines are safe and effective, but we do know that after the introduction of vaccines, the death rates attributed to these diseases plummeted.  But there is an inherent problem with this logic. Since correlation does not imply or promise causation, the disappearance of these diseases could be attributed to better hygiene, improved sanitation, as well as a number of other technological advances, all of which came to the…

Water: It’s a Mystery

Geometry of the Water Droplet

Water is the most common substance known to man and also the most mysterious.  The list of anomalies associated with it runs as long as the ocean is deep.  Modern science has ignored this seemingly simple molecule, dismissing any qualities beyond the materialistic as pseudoscience and new age baloney.  Water is central to life and more than its mere chemical makeup.  Today nobody really understands it.  Water is the ultimate mystery. Any substance can exist in three different physical forms; solid, liquid and gas. Water is the only substance on earth that naturally occurs in all three states. As a gas it is one of lightest known, as a liquid it is much denser than expected and as a solid it is much lighter than expected. Unlike other liquids, water expands when frozen. Yet, while frozen, weighs around 9% less than water which is why…

The Blood Moon Tetrad

moon

This coming Saturday(4-4-15) is number 3 out of 4 of the Blood Moon Tetrad (Tetrad meaning four) in the 2014-1015 season.  According to NASA, the shadow of Earth will completely cover the Moon which causes it to turn red. In Colorado where I live we will be able to see the “totality” beginning at 5:58 AM Mountain Time.  If you live on the East Coast you won’t be as lucky and will only see a partial ‘occulting’ or hiding of the Moon. Early-rising observers all over the United States should be able to see at least the partial phases of the April 4 lunar eclipse just before the sun rises, if weather permits. People on the West Coast will have the chance to see the moon turn an eerie shade of red during totality, which should begin at about 7:58 a.m. EDT (1158 GMT,…

The Seven Liberal Arts

Seven Liberal Arts 15

The seven liberal arts are the disciplines of study that the Pythagoreans taught in their mystery schools.  They’re the subjects or skills, that in classical antiquity were considered essential for a free person to cultivate to gain a solid foundation of their physical reality. (Latin: liberalis, “worthy of a free person”) The Trivium is made up of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric.  But not exactly in the sense of the words.  Grammar is information we gather, the “Who, What, When, and Where”.  Logic is the processing of that data and attempt to make sense of it.  It’s our reason and understanding.  Logic answers”Why”.  Rhetoric is the applying of knowledge to gain wisdom.  Rhetoric answers the “How”. The 7 Liberal Arts The Trivium:  (tri for three) Grammar (Who, What, When, Where) Logic (Why) Rhetoric (How) The Quadrivium (quad for four) Number Geometry (Number in Space) Music (Number in Time) Astronomy…
