The Six Grand Illusions That Keep Us Enslaved to “The Matrix”

Sigmund Fraud, Staff Writer Waking Times

“In prison, illusions can offer comfort.” – Nelson Mandela

For a magician to fool his audience his deceit must go unseen, and to this end he crafts an illusion to avert attention from reality. While the audience is entranced, the deceptive act is committed, and for the fool, reality then becomes inexplicably built upon on a lie. That is, until the fool wakes up and recognizes the truth in the fact that he has been duped.

Maintaining the suspension of disbelief in the illusion, however, is often more comforting than acknowledging the magician’s secrets.

We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we are indoctrinated into this authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race, we are trained that certain aspects of our society are untouchable truths, and that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred.

Psychopaths disempower people in this way. They blind us with never ceasing barrages of suggestions and absolutes that are aimed at shattering self-confidence and confidence in the future.

Bansky, the revered and elusive revolutionary street artist, once commented:

“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.” – Banksy

Advertising is just the tip of the iceberg. When we look further we see that the overall organization of life is centered around the pursuit of illusions and automatic obedience to institutions and ideas which are not at all what they seem. We are in a very real sense enslaved. Many call this somewhat intangible feeling of oppression ‘the matrix,’ a system of total control that invades the mind, programming individuals to pattern themselves in accordance with a mainstream conformist version of reality, no matter how wicked it gets.

The grandest of the illusions which keep us enslaved to the matrix, the ones that have so many of us still entranced, are outlined below for your consideration.

1. The Illusion of Law, Order and Authority

For so many of us, following the law is considered a moral obligation, and many of us gladly do so even though corruption, scandal, and wickedness repeatedly demonstrate that the law is plenty flexible for those who have the muscle to bend it. Police brutality and police criminality is rampant in the US, the courts favor the wealthy, and we can longer even lead our lives privately thanks to the intrusion of state surveillance. And all the while the illegal and immoral Orwellian permanent war rages on in the background of life, murdering and destroying whole nations and cultures.

The social order is not what it seems, for it is entirely predicated on conformity, obedience and acquiescence which are enforced by fear of violence. History teaches us again and again that the law is just as often as not used as an instrument of oppression, social control and plunder, and any so-called authority in this regard is false, hypocritical, and unjust.

When the law itself does not follow the law, there is no law, there is no order, and there is no justice. The pomp and trappings of authority are merely a concealment of the truth that the current world order is predicated on control, not consent.

2. The Illusion of Prosperity and Happiness

Adorning oneself in expensive clothes and trinkets, and amassing collections of material possessions that would be the envy of any 19th century monarch has become a substitute for genuine prosperity. Maintaining the illusion of prosperity, though, is critical to our economy as it is, because its foundation is built on consumption, fraud, credit and debt. The banking system itself has been engineered from the top down to create unlimited wealth for some while taxing the eternity out of the rest of us.

True prosperity is a vibrant environment and an abundance of health, happiness, love, and relationships. As more people come to perceive material goods as the form of self-identification in this culture, we slip farther and farther away from the experience of true prosperity.

3. The Illusion of Choice and Freedom

Read between the lines and look at the fine print, we are not free, not by any intelligent standard. Freedom is about having choice, yet in today’s world, choice has come to mean a selection between available options, always from within the confines of a corrupt legal and taxation system and within the boundaries of culturally accepted and enforced norms.

Just look no further than the phony institution of modern democracy to find a shining example of false choices appearing real. Two entrenched, corrupt, archaic political parties are paraded as the pride and hope of the nation, yet third party and independent voices are intentionally blocked, ridiculed and plowed under.

The illusion of choice and freedom is a powerful oppressor because it fools us into accepting chains and short leashes as though they were the hallmarks of liberty.

Multiple choice is different than freedom, it is easy servitude.

4. The Illusion of Truth

Truth has become a touchy subject in our culture, and we’ve been programmed to believe that ‘the‘ truth comes from the demigods of media, celebrity, and government. If the TV declares something to be true, then we are heretics to believe otherwise.

In order to maintain order, the powers that be depend our acquiescence to their version of the truth. While independent thinkers and journalists continually blow holes in the official versions of reality, the illusion of truth is so very powerful that it takes a serious personal upheaval to shun the cognitive dissonance needed to function in a society that openly chases false realities.

5. The Illusion of Time

They say that time is money, but this is a lie. Time is your life. Your life is an ever-evolving manifestation of the now. Looking beyond the five sense world, where we have been trained to move in accordance with the clock and the calendar, we find that the spirit is eternal, and that the each individual soul is part of this eternity.

The big deception here is the reinforcement of the idea that the present moment is of little to no value, that the past is something we cannot undo or ever forget, and that the future is intrinsically more important than both the past and the present. This carries our attention away from what it actually happening right now and directs it toward the future. Once completely focused on what is to come rather than what is, we are easy prey to advertisers and fear-pimps who muddy our vision of the future with every possible worry and concern imaginable.

We are happiest when life doesn’t box us in, when spontaneity and randomness gives us the chance to find out more about ourselves. Forfeiting the present moment in order to fantasize about the future is a trap. The immense, timeless moments of spiritual joy that are found in quiet meditation are proof that time is a construct of the mind of humankind, and not necessarily mandatory for the human experience.

If time is money, then life can be measured in dollars. When dollars are worth less, so is life. This is total deception, because life is, in truth, absolutely priceless.

6. The Illusion of Separateness

On a strategic level, the tactic of divide and conquer is standard operating procedure for authoritarians and invading armies, but the illusion of separateness runs even deeper than this.

We are programmed to believe that as individuals we are in competition with everyone and everything around us, including our neighbors and even mother nature. Us vs. them to the extreme. This flatly denies the truth that life on this planet is infinitely inter-connected. Without clean air, clean water, healthy soil, and a vibrant global sense of community we cannot survive here.

While the illusion of separateness comforts us by gratifying the ego and and offering a sense of control, in reality it only serves to enslave and isolate us.

Conclusion

The grand illusions mentioned here have been staged before us as a campaign to encourage blind acquiescence to the machinations of the matrix. In an attempt to dis-empower us, they demand our conformity and obedience, but we must not forget that all of this is merely an elaborate sales pitch. They can’t sell what we don’t care to buy.

Conspiracy Theories

Looking for Planet X: Everyone can already see Nibiru

The following article is quoted from an archived New York Times article from … July 1, 1987:

According to NASA’s scientist John Anderson, if a large planet is located at the edge of the solar system, it should travel in an elongated orbit almost at right angles to the orbits of other planets. According to him, such an orbit will bring the planet closer to the rest of the solar system only every 700-1000 years.

Dr. Anderson voiced this new hypothesis about the possible existence of Planet X at a press conference at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. The center manages the flights of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft, which are now more than four billion miles from the Sun on courses that will ultimately deliver them to interstellar space.

Astronomers have long searched for Planet X to explain amazing observations showing disturbances in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune. These vibrations indicated that some large distant object had a gravitational effect on known outer planets. The search led in 1930 to the discovery of Pluto, but it turned out that it was too small to disrupt the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.

After two Pioneer spacecraft flew over Jupiter in the 1970s, they were sent along a trajectory beyond the boundaries of known planets and monitored to see if they were exposed to an invisible gravitational force. Small space stations almost do not produce their own gravitational forces, so they are sensitive indicators of any distant gravitational perturbations.

Dr. Anderson said that for five years of accurate measurements and analysis, he did not find anything in the Pioneer data that could reveal gravitational effects that cannot be explained by the forces of the famous nine planets.

In fact, according to Dr. Anderson, a review of astronomical data over the past 75 years has failed to provide clear evidence of such disturbances. But the observations of the 19th century, which caused subsequent speculation, after careful study by astronomers at the US Naval Observatory, were confirmed – that is, something affects the orbits.

Dr. Anderson concluded that the apparent presence of some power in the 19th century and its absence can now be explained by the existence of a large object, which is now at a great distance from the Sun – approximately opposite Uranus and Neptune.

“The best explanation,” said Dr. Anderson, is that the object is in orbit tilted at right angles to the orbits of the other planets. Thus, in the last century, it crossed the plane of other planets and is now located far from the plane in its elongated orbit.

According to the hypothesis, the object should be five times more massive than the Earth. If he were more massive, his presence would be detected. If he were less massive, his strength would probably not be large enough to push Neptune out of orbit.

The hypothetical Planet X also figured in the assumptions about the cause of mass extinctions on Earth, which apparently occur regularly every 26 million years. Daniel P. Whitmere, an astronomer at the University of Southwest Louisiana, suggested that Planet X could follow a course in which every 26 million years it perturbes a cloud of comets in the outer solar system and thus sends destructive meteorites to Earth.

“We do not support this theory as a working hypothesis,” Dr. Anderson said in a telephone interview. “But we do not refute this.”

In 1987, Dr. Anderson, speaking at a press conference at the Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, thwarted a round of applause, but after 30 years, such statements are not perceived in the same way. Meanwhile, everything is easily explainable and falls well into place.

The fact that something else was detected at the edge of the solar system by astronomers back in the 19th century and the observations of these people were confirmed not by a youtuber, but by astronomers at the US Naval Observatory. And what do the supporters of the New Chronology say about the 19th century?

They say that all the “historical events” until the 19th century were sucked out and that in fact several centuries ago there was some kind of disaster, after which people began to dig out the silt of the city and build civilization from scratch. But after causing this catastrophe, Nibiru did not evaporate – it moved on the same course, where Uranus and Neptune moved slightly – which was noticed by astronomers of the 19th century. 

Then Nibiru moved further and the effect of influence on the planets disappeared – there were only asteroids that were turned upside down, which revolve around the Sun not like everyone else, but in perpendicular orbits. 

And now Nibiru is approaching again. The direct descendants of those who survived the past cataclysm and retained technology now, obviously, just rule the world. They know exactly the date of the next pass to Nibiru, therefore, on the eve of this date, a command was given to defame the topic. And if in the middle of the last century astronomers wrote scientific articles about Nibiru, now no one will pickle so that they do not consider him a fool. 

Nevertheless, although the Apocalypse has almost come, Nibiru is not very visible. Why not? It is not visible because some kind of people spray chemtrails with a special composition that absorbs light of a certain spectrum:

 

But, despite these titanic efforts, Nibiru can still be noticed – just buy a mask of a welder or look at the Sun through special glasses:

Thus, the person shows the whole procedure live. The fact that this is not a glare is obvious. Whoever wants to – can repeat everything, whoever does not want to – let him believe after seeing the message on TV: apparently, the blind will see soon enough and severe events may start soon.

Blue Beam on ISS: UFO observed the test of the US military satellite in low Earth orbit

On June 17, according to open data, the United States launched the Red-Eye-2 small spacecraft for experiments in the interests of managing promising research projects of the country’s Defense Ministry DARPA.

The Red-Eye microsatellite was launched into near-Earth orbit using the NanoRacks Kaber Microsat deployer, outside the Japanese Kibo laboratory module. 

The 110-pound Red-Eye has tested satellite communications, on-board computers and thermal management technology.

 DARPA (US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Office) writes the following on this subject:

Optical communication terminals using lasers to transmit data through space will be tested in upcoming experiments by the Space Development Agency and the Defense Advanced Research Agency.

These terminals are important components of future low-orbit platforms that will require optical cross-linking between satellites, so data collected in space can be immediately sent to military command centers on earth.

Laser communication systems have much higher data rates than radio-based systems, but DoD has problems such as the effect of cosmic radiation on optical terminals and the ability of electronics to withstand the load of a space launch …

This is according to official data, but in a live broadcast from one of the ISS cameras (from the second, since the first was turned off due to the many UFOs falling into the frame), we see something completely different.

The US military satellite launched into orbit from the ISS is approaching the second satellite (and judging by the size it is far from being “microsatellites”) and begins the exchange of laser beams.

This, somehow, is not very similar to the declared tests by one launched satellite “testing of satellite communications, on-board computers and thermal control technology.”

Not to mention the fact that all this “test” is accompanied by many UFOs that fly right next to this pair of US military satellites and monitor them.

Now the ISS crew consists of Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner, as well as American astronauts Christopher Cassidy, Douglas Hurley and Robert Benken.

Judging by the negotiations with the control center that were going on at the time of the “tests”, the Russian cosmonauts had no idea what was happening and went about their own business.

There is very little open information about the purpose of these military satellites. We were only able to find a mention that “DARPA plans to launch a pair of small satellites that will carry optical inter-satellite communications systems made by SA Photonics. At the end of the Blackjack program in 2022, DARPA’s goal is to demonstrate that the optical laser network can provide global secure communications for the US military.”

First of all, what is surprising is what the United States uses the International Space Station to launch military satellites.

Secondly, it is surprising that both the astronauts and the control center cannot be unaware of the presence of UFOs in the Earth’s orbit, since they see them not only visually, but also on cameras, but they don’t consider any explanation of this UFO and even confirmation of their actual existence to the public.

Coronavirus – an experiment in social engineering

On June 7, 2020, Carlo Maria Vigano, a former senior official of the Vatican, sent an open letter to Donald Trump, in which he remarked that the “Covid-19 pandemic” and the riots that synchronously followed were “an experiment of gigantic social engineering.

There are many other hints, even details. There is nothing particularly new and unknown to the conspiracy theorists in the letter, but the fact is that all this is stated not by a “dude with a foil cap”, but by the Title Archbishop of Ulpian and the former Apostolic Nuncio in the United States of America:

 In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness. 

 These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation. 

 In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions.

The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

 We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

 Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.

 For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons. 

 For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

 The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

 Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

 United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.
