Conspiracy Theories and Fear...

Barely a day goes by that I do not encounter someone on the Internet passionately proclaiming that the world is held captive by a conspiracy of evil and that the helpless, hapless human inhabitants of the planet have been enslaved by a small dynasty of calculating, nefarious men (or aliens) and their wicked organizations. What could be more classically duality-matrix themed than that?

However well-meaning those that espouse this are, and however true these notions may possibly be in one view of reality, it is not a view of reality you want to focus on if creating a world of harmony and joy is your desire! Investing any passion in the duality matrix by being outraged about “evil” does exactly the thing that keeps you—and the rest of humanity—at lower frequency: increasing the power of entities in reverse polarity by feeding them with energy. Whenever you focus on or push against something, you empower it. The key is rising above it.

Have you noticed how much fear you tap into when you read, hear, or think about these ideas of being controlled and manipulated? Have you sensed the drop in your frequency and the diminution of joy that is triggered when you immerse yourself in these conspiracy discussions? What does this tell you? If you’re alert to it, you’ll know that you’ve moved into the territory of the part of you that thrives on fear.

What aspect of you is it that gets excited from and feeds off fear? It’s your reptilian brain. While the reptilian brain does handle some important jobs within you, like controlling your autonomic nervous system and making sure you don’t get run over by a bus, it is not the aspect of you that will lead you to freedom and happiness! Heeding the call of the reptilian brain leads you down in frequency and farther from the Paradise reality of ease and joy.

So, why would you lower your frequency by drinking in—and passing on to others—fearful stuff? In addition to the calling of your reptilian brain for more scary input, your reptilian brain is also about status—the smarter you appear, the higher your status. (In the reptilian brain’s world, status is a key to survival.) Your ego, which is the psychological overlay for your reptilian brain, finds gratification in demonstrating that you are one of the few that have waked up and caught on to the machinations of the evil-doers.

The irony is, however, that the more people with which you share the information, and consequently, the fear, the lower the vibrational frequency and corresponding consciousness level of the whole of humanity. And the more determined people become to overcome the evil by pushing against it, the more it is strengthened. So the more energy given to the theoretical conspiracies, the more the conspiracies—or the fear they generate—are empowered, and the further disempowered humanity is!

I remember a few years back, when on the old off site David Icke forums, the sentiment that Icke was one of "them" since he was promulgating fear in his writings.

From the referenced article.

" In order to escape the clutches of evil, you have to opt out of the reality where there is such a thing as “good” and “evil.”"

This is the main problem I see with New Age. Failure to take responsibilty and shrugging off the heavy lifting onto someone else. I am all for a better world which would be ok if "everyone" shared the ideal. But the idea of no evil is like the three monkeys, see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil; which, just allows the unscrupulous to take advantage of the meek.

Let's say that you are in this wonderful state of resolved dualities, meditating in your room when a bunch of jackbooted thugs haul off your family. No evil here. They must be experiencing some kind of karmic lesson. To deny evil is to accept evil and to me this is dangerous. We have a conscience for a reason.

To have no conscience, remorse, or sense of right and wrong sounds more like a sociopath to me.

Strange, I usually enjoy coming here to read about what happens in the world. I dont feel fear or anger at all. Unless I turn on the mainstream news and see the total idiots on there, but I dont.


Is it similar for others? Or do you feel yourself becoming fearful by reading stuff here?

I have heard that in the original script for the third Matrix film it would have been revealed that Zion and the rest of the outside world was in fact also a part of the matrix.
A special subsection of the matrix created for those who were rebellious in nature and wouldn't just accept the regular matrix.

In the real world conspiracy theories can be seen as having the same function.
A method of keeping the "alternative minded" people occupied.

9/11 is a perfect example, the mainstream people were filled with anger & fear directed at Muslim extremists.
The alternative community were filled with anger & fear directed at the true culprits - usually the NWO/Illuminati.

The end result is the same. Moreover you have the alternatively community spending incredible amounts of energy finding evidence for the crime & even bickering internally over whether there were really planes or not etc.


I'm not saying that it's categorically a bad thing to examine the events on 9/11. I am very grateful for a lot of the work done by alternative researchers.
But it's extremely important to not be sucked into the spiral of negativity
but rather rise above it.

This is something that everyone who researches these subjects should be constantly aware of.

Thanks for the thread.

I can't say that revelation of the truth has not been, at the very least troublesome and eye-opening, and at the very worst highly riddled with anxiety, heartache and disappointment. But I also can't say that I've been without a much higher standard of awareness simply because I see the pattern and recognize it on a daily basis.

I still put forth an effort to distract myself, if only in spite or want of purposefully neglectful selfish reprieve of highly disturbing and exhausting information that upon hearing it prompts instilled fear, unbridled hatred, unfeigned confusion and homicidal anger. It's an entirely limbic (reptilian) reaction to balance the darkness of life and unfortunate understanding with the light of calmness and virtue.

You must give yourself ample time for 'normal' activities, thus giving yourself some well-deserved time in which to reflect on some of the absorbed information you've just acquired in a calm, collected, unbiased way in nothing short of a way to not jump to conclusions and make erroneous judgments on something you're still gathering data on.

Will we eventually have the whole truth, no. As pieces of the truth seem too much to bare, the whole must be nothing short of staring death in the face. But since a wise man is always the consummate student, we might possibly achieve a state of awareness at which we can live with some semblance of bliss, joy and comfort in the knowledge that the darkness will only ever win as much as the light that is shed upon it.

Freedom is not the only thing that requires responsibility, as we are also ultimately responsible for our apathy, complacency, neglect and ignorance as well.

EDIT: Italic instead of color...as color doesn't work.

That is really not what it said in the article nor is it implied in what the author stated.
I don't think anyone is saying that you shouldn't defend yourself or your family if your home is invaded by the NWO, but seriously, how many here has that happened to?

Yet daily there are threads about how the NWO will soon kick down our doors & drag everyone away to concentration camps and what not.
And it has been like this for many, many years.

The basic point is to not let fear & hate be the dominating emotions in your life, but love & forgiveness.

To a degree, same here. I am reading a alot of calls for us to remain peaceful, not to take to the streets ect because it will give the go ahead to lock us all up, enforce martial law ect, and while that is all well and good, there is a frustration creeping in me that we should be doing more.

I can think happy thoughts all day long, however, I see the way the future is headed and know that if those of this generation don't do something soon it will be too late, and would go as far as to say we're on the boarder line already.

yeah, Neo we agree on much. On the other thread about free energy for example. If we as a race could just transcend Maslow's survival needs, there would be no need for dinosaur brains and the lower emotions. These dinosaur brains still haunt us to this day(fear), even though we as a race are no longer preyed upon like animals in the natural world.

To live without fear, but, to have an awareness of the shortcomings of those who choose tyranny, is the way to evolve. If the populous at large were empowered to the degree of having the technological resources to meet our basic needs, then maybe those who want to oppress us would be laughed at. That would be a turn-around, huh?

They used to say, " Suppose they had a war and nobody came?", during the VietNam era.

cool thread.

THAT is one of the things tha ATF did show me: Don't watch MSM.

Also that:
MSPharma lie,
MSPetrol lie
MSArmament lie,
MSNews papers lie
MS a few others lie. . .B-)
MSGovernment lie, but they ALL are the puppets of TPTB.

I don't get fearful, because I read that stuff with the same
** grain of salt **, that I did in the times of the ** Year 2000 bug **.

And if we keep positives intentions and feelings, it will
influence/impact on the world, a little bit.

Blue skies.

Wouldn't it just. As I said on the other thread about Teslas story being quite saddening, the possibilities of where mankind could be today. He was a true genius, the greatest mind that ever lived perhaps, and look what they did to him.

Thanks for linking, that was a good metaphor for change.


C-JEAN: Yes. Its hard to actually like the mass media. Its main problem is that its filled with shallow egocentric disrespectful annoying people. Apparently those are the qualities needed to become the host of a news network today.

Great thread, Neo. Inspires me to look within to see what is attracted to all the conspiracy/doom crap.
