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

The Six Grand Illusions That Keep Us Enslaved to “The Matrix” 86

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.

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station 99

Juno, is NASA’s unmanned interplanetary station launched on August 5, 2011 to explore Jupiter, the second project under the New Frontiers program. The spacecraft entered the polar orbit of the gas giant on July 5, 2016. The purpose of the mission was to study the gravitational and magnetic fields of Jupiter, as well as to test the hypothesis that Jupiter has a solid core.

Instruments of the Juno interplanetary probe, which is exploring Jupiter, detected a nearby signal at a frequency of about 6.5 megahertz, which is in the range of high-frequency radio waves. On Earth, they are used for ionospheric communications and over-the-horizon radar, but in Jupiter’s orbit, their source is supposedly natural.

Such signals have been known for a long time: they are called decametric radio emission. However, for the first time, a spacecraft recorded them in the immediate vicinity of the place of origin. In fact, the probe flew through the source of the radio burst, near Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon.

Juno’s sensors observed the phenomenon for about five seconds, and then it merged with the background radiation. Given the speed of the probe – about 50 kilometers per second – we can conclude that the area of ​​space where the signal is generated is about 250 kilometers across.

As NASA explains, the found radio emission with a frequency of 10-40 MHz creates a stream of electrons rotating in Jupiter’s magnetic field. They generate a radio signal as a result of a process of a certain cyclotron maser instability. 

NASA was so terribly interested in this cyclotron instability that the Juno mission was decided to be extended indefinitely, and now the bright adepts are busy building a new ship, the money for which they managed to get in a record short time.

The intrigue is that the conspiracy theorists knew about this radiation back in October 2020, although NASA only spoke about it now. The story began there with the appearance of the following message on one of the network boards:

Juno probe recorded a radio signal source in orbit of Jupiter which may be an ancient interplanetary station 100

According to this modest text, it was written as if by a CIA officer who went on the run in the fall of 2020. The reason for this was the cleansing of a team of agents who cleared and hid information about the discovery in orbit of Ganymede of an object similar to an interplanetary space station, created using some advanced technology. 

It was opened by the same “Juno”, which on June 6, 2020 discovered a strange radio signal, which NASA reports only now. The signal was very powerful and went in a narrow beam, which does not happen in nature, so the satellite was slowed down and at the next revolution turned to look – where is the beam coming from? 

The signal came from an object in the form of a torus, inside which a sphere about 1000 feet in diameter was suspended. The sphere was of a substance resembling metal, glowing with a purple light with a green tint, and rotating clockwise. In this case, the torus rotated in the opposite direction. It also looked like the sphere had been damaged by some kind of internal explosion. Nobody had any idea what it was, and it was thought that this was the work of the proto-civilization of the Earth, which was trying to colonize Jupiter. The version of the object’s alien origin was also considered. 

When people read it in October, everyone laughed merrily. However, when NASA revealed the discovery of something on Ganymede, everyone suddenly realized that the message seemed to be pure truth and therefore now, in order to hush up the information, NASA urgently released its legend of what was happening.

Peruvian court names Gates, Soros and Rockefeller as “creators” of the COVID-19 pandemic

Peruvian judges said the coronavirus pandemic was organized by “authors of a new world order”, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates, investment banker George Soros, and members of the Rockefeller family of billionaires. Such a verdict was issued when considering an appeal to extend the detention of a local resident accused of rape.

Judges Tito Gallegos, Luis Legia and Tony Changaray were the authors of the controversial ruling. They explained that the coronavirus pandemic turned out to be force majeure, since no one, except for the “organizers” of the pandemic named by them, could predict its consequences.

“The criminal process was paralyzed due to the COVID-19 pandemic created by the criminal elites, which paralyzed activities in almost all countries … No world government, individuals and legal entities, nor the defense of the accused can claim that this pandemic can be called ‘predictable’, except for the creators of the new world order, such as Bill Gate, Soros, Rockefeller, etc., who ruled it. They continue to manage it in conditions of extreme secrecy and in global corporations with an eye on the 2030 project,” the Pasión por el Derecho edition quotes the text of the resolution.

Representatives of the department, which is responsible for overseeing the work of judges in Peru, have already announced that a review has begun against the authors of the ruling. The RPP publication indicates that it will be clear from its results whether a colleague committed a violation.

In early 2020, against the backdrop of a pandemic, conspiracy theories related to the spread of COVID-19 spread online. According to one version, some world forces (among which Bill Gates, the CIA and the Chinese authorities were mentioned ) specially brought the coronavirus into the laboratory and spread it to put the inhabitants of the planet at home, irradiate them with 5G, and then microchip them. 

Gates himself later stated that such theories were “difficult to deny” because they are “too ridiculous.” 

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) believes that the virus was not created artificially – the organization is of the opinion that the infection was transmitted to humans from bats.

US “on the edge”: Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US?

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 102

The United States is in danger of going to extremes, which after the January 6 events, no one knows what is happening in the country and the uncertainty seems to peak in the next few hours.

There are facts which could show that we are heading for the most dramatic hours the world has experienced since the August 1991 coup in Russia when the communists attempted to return to power and take control of the nuclear arsenal.

First, after an incomprehensible and unexpected blackout in Pakistan, a blackout happened in the Vatican.

A few hours before the blackout in Pakistan, the frequency of power grids in Europe dropped sharply,   and only renowned German engineers and no less famous German quality of equipment saved Europe from plunging into darkness, as it happened a little later in Pakistan:

Are there plans for some kind of Pentagon intervention, as Washington now resembles Moscow in August 1991?:

Second, US President N. Trump is ready to activate the Emergency Alarm system that bypasses all conventional media (television, internet, radio, etc.) to send a message to US citizens!

In response, of course, to the decision of the dominant online media, from Google to Fb, Amazon, Tweet, Twitch to ban Trump from communicating with US citizens, even through Parler, the medium used by tens of millions of right-wing Americans to communicate.

The Emergency Alarm System (EAS) is a national alert system in the United States that came into force on January 1, 1997 and is coordinated jointly by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The system is designed primarily to allow the president to address the country by intervening in the programming of all radio and television stations in the event of a national emergency.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is used as a backend for the dissemination of warning information via EAS and related technologies, such as Wireless Alerts Alerts (WEA), using Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). EAS messages are mainly transmitted via terrestrial and satellite radio and television (including broadcast and multichannel television), which must be part of the system. 

Millions of SMS have been sent in the last hours with the following update:

Third, the US military has been embroiled in an unprecedented political conflict. According to the New York Times, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Chief of Staff General Marley Miley to restrict the president’s access to the nuclear arsenal, but he refused, as it would be a purely military coup.

The representative of the American Military leadership, David Butler confirmed that “the phone call was made and there was information about the nuclear control procedures”.

To add that 70% of the military support Trump, but one can not imagine the involvement of the US armed forces in the internal political conflict, even if it has gone beyond what could be assumed as “within reason.”

Fourth, the airspace above Washington was recently closed. Theoretically, it closed because an air traffic controller fell ill with coronavirus. Information was then leaked about “a possible terrorist attack by Iran in retaliation for Suleimani’s assassination.”

How likely is that? Then there were rumors that it was closed because N. Trump moved out of the White House accompanied by USAF fighters.

That is, for the movement of the aircraft of the presidency “Air Force 1” but it does not cease as a fact to be unprecedented.

The official excuse is that they disinfect the Air Traffic Control Room for flights over 18,000 feet because of a controller who tested positive for the virus.

See the picture of air traffic on the east coast of the USA, now:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 105

Fifth, the arrival of the National Guard in Washington in large numbers:

Military helicopters observed over many US cities. There are many helicopters, they fly at unusually low altitudes and, if the helicopters are attack helicopters, people can consider full suspension systems with weapons:

Sixth, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released an UPDATE of the nuclear attack guidelines it gives to all Americans through the Ready.gov website. Among the items added by FEMA are the following:

On your way to work, find suitable hiding places to look for in the event of an explosion. Due to COVID-19, many of the places you may walk to and from work may be closed or may not work during normal hours. 

Such things were brought to the attention of the Americans for the last time fifty years ago, at the very peak of the Cold War, and the fact that this is now remembered again is very surprising to everyone. 

Seventh,since Sunday, January 10, the Boeing E-4B is constantly in the air – one of the so-called “doomsday aircraft”, that is, an air command post:

US "on the edge": Seven facts showing what is brewing to happen in the US? 106

In normal times, any of these messages taken separately would have caused a serious panic among American conspiracy theorists, since, apart from periodic flights of “doomsday planes,” nothing of the above has ever happened. And now it turns out, as it were, seven inexplicable sensational news in 24 hours.

This allows one to think that in the United States either some not very good things are being prepared, or these things are in full swing. That is, we can talk either about some grandiose false flag or even a possible world war.
