Perception is a very challenging concept to completely understand, for starters most individuals have their own in-built perceptions of the world and
those around them, from the macro level when one contemplates reality at large, to the micro when one observes their daily lives and interactions.
In order to even comprehend what it truly is, one must be able to control their perception like any other sense, however, perception is tied
intrinsically with our personal thoughts and beliefs, as it is generally something that we have been conditioned with and also something that many
cannot imagine being any different.
To control perception is to see it as a form of "illusion" and to do this one must be able to control thier mind to perceive the same object in
different ways, and observe how the perception of the object influences your intentions towards it. Thus, when we perceive an object in a specified
pattern, we experience corresponding feelings that tempt us into making "perception-specific" choices, and indeed, those that are able control the
perceptions of others, those that function on a specifically high level, can control the populace.
As a side note, a perception will not cause an involuntary act, that is, we can choose, though, most are generally "tempted" and choose to change
thier behaviours in-line with thier perceptions. It is at this point that I must highlight an obvious example - a man that was previously neutral
towards domestic cats, having no fear of them and behaving in a calm manner around them, is attacked by a wild cat in the forest. He develops a
"phobia" towards cats and now whenever he sees even a kitten he chooses to avoid them. Such an example is a very obvious perceptual difference that
has altered behaviour. However, and obviously, we know how complex the human brain is, and indeed how complex our perceptions really are, right down
to a pencil-eraser, a tea-cup, a car, a brand name, clothing, mannerisms including body language, speech patterns, colours, day and night...
The list goes on...
So, if we see perception as a function of the brain, then, what is controlling how this function develops? The answer is what I want to coin as
"perceptual control" - when we observe objects in repeated fashions and learn to associate them with certain attributes - one could look at a
Ferrari as simply a large piece of metal, however, most are conditioned to associate them with fame and success, and all of a sudden a machine turns
into a statement, an object of desire, an extension of ones self and also when possessed, influential on self-perception - which is the other side of
the coin, and also amazingly complex and intriguing.
We now turn our attention to the facets of perceptual control in our environment - the most obvious is television, day in day out, we watch, and we
are all trained in the same way because we are all watching the same collection of channels, in the macro sense, it is a large scale control over
perception, and, to the controllers, they know how it works, and it is not something that you can just read in a book, it is an intuitive skill, being
able to design advertisements, propaganda, imagery, even buildings and landscapes to capture certain perceptual "bandwidths" or perceptual
These "controllers" can thus observe the fruits of their efforts, can see how, for example, thier "consumers" behave when they release new
advertisements, and also can see on a global level how entire populations are coralled into certain peceptual domains that generate homogeneous
Ask yourself, how "accute" is your perception, do you see the world in "plain vanilla" where most things appear to "look the same" or are you in
a world of "colours" where all objects illicit different feelings and appear to have different "characters" and "tones" - or are you highly
developed, can you look at people and assess them right down to the finest details?
The control over perception is a huge issue in my mind, and I know that, they know, that, it is something that can be changed and does
have influences over the choices people make, and thus, the direction of civilisation itself!
Although a bit "conspiracy" I postulate that the "elites" are able to perceive the control itself, they can perceive how perceptions are
manufactured by certain designs and configurations, for example, a building with certain interior design facets will create different "moods" for
the inhabitants, an thus an interior designer can alter how things appear perceptually within a certain space, and if my theory is correct, they can
affect the way that people behave in said space.
Perception is something that can be "shared" for certain individuals, as mentioned, individuals can be "corralled" and thus form certain
"cliques" where they share the same outlook of the world, and thus collective perceptions create collective behaviors, and these perceptions
themselves most likely are "controlled" by methodologies that create aversions to certain objects (fears) and attractions to other objects
An obvious example is a religion, when ingrained, a "follower" sees the world with a certain pair of specs, and this affects his choices, if the
religious leaders understand how the influence of certain beliefs affect the collective outlook of their "peoples" they can thus predict and even
plan the direction of the behaviours of their "followers".
Encouraging congruous perceptions and "training" them into people from a young age will create collective states of mind, and collectives are by far
substantially easier to control than individuals whom possess their own unique states of mind - something that only occurs when one has the mental
capacity and persistence to challenge the direction that the "flock" is moving in.
How would one "free" themselves of these "controls" - it requires a mastery over ones senses, to comprehend how thoughts themselves are
manufactured by environmental variables, one can realise that they are being "swayed" in certain directions, and choose to opt for their own path as
a matter of independence.
Why would you choose to be isolated from collective perceptions and thus collective mind sets? Because, you can see the element of slavery that is
involved, and because you do not trust the "controllers" and their agendas.
