"From day one, we have been conditioned on how to think, who to be, and what to do. Virtually every aspect of ourselves is a product of the illusion. If we want to take back control of our lives and be free, we must first understand how it has managed to manipulate the whole world without ever being noticed." - Artificial Existence: The Illusion

Inspired by Zeitgeist, I felt a video was needed to focus on the reality of reality. Being constantly bombarded with useless information on the television and in school, I finally stood up and said to myself, "It's time people got a wake up call."

I have always been tech savvy and know a thing or two about computers. I decided to put that to good use and create a video that would show the reality of our reality. Without any further delay, I present to you Artificial Existence: The Illusion.

Let me start off by saying i didn't get to watch them all but...

interesting, the only problem i had was the michel jackson thing. He was a star and quite literally "the King of pop" so this reaction was totally aceptable and understandable.

Are you joking?

He was the King of Pedophiles, not the king of pop, he did not deserve one person to shed a tear on this drug induced death. I hope to never hear his name again.

It was quite an embarrassment when the media used his death as a cover up for Obama coming into power and doing absolutely nothing.

WAKE UP! Nobody cared about him, until they started showing people singing and crying about his death! Up until then, he was a well known pedophile. He had a secret room in his house stacked with kiddie porn, and little kids beds hidden in the wall.

So far I've watched the first video and will be watching the others. The things that you talk about in that first video; I've been thinking about a lot, especially lately. There is enough food and water in the world for everyone. It was not meant that we had to pay to live. At this point, it's very complex because there are so many people, but as to how the resources would be cared for and distributed. I think about, in spite of the economy, how many cars you will still see at most malls and shopping centers. And I think about how much money is spent on absolutely unnecessary items; items that someone in another country most likely is getting paid slave wages for just to try to survive; to pay for their place to sleep and food. The impact that manufacturing this junk has upon the planet. And yes, my house is full of this stuff too. I am slowly starting to think about my choices and changes that I can make. Change has to start with a thought. I know that people work to earn the money to buy anything that they want, but when there is so much excess in the world, why do so many have to be hungry? Some people will say that many people make bad choices which lead to the situations that they find themselves in, but who are we to judge? We don't know everyone's background, i.e., traits that they inherited from family members, environmental factors, how their upbringing affected them - everyone is different and handles situations differently.

I usually shy away from saying controversial things because of so much hatred and negativity, but we really need to "rewind". I think that who knows how many thousands of years ago, we were tampered with in a way that caused the overpopulation that we see today - another complex controversial subject. But in any case, we would be better off living simply; gently upon the land; growing and eating our own food. I guess it started out that way, but then people started traveling and trading, and at some point "profit" came onto the scene, and of course, greed and power hunger. I could go on and on and on, but I'll leave it at this. Sorry that I'm rambling but I have so much on my mind. S & F OP

And just so happens, here's a link to another thread that takes you to a prime example of what I'm trying to convey. Pollution in China

The issue is not who Michael Jackson was, what he did, or how the media covered up (insert subject here). It is how we willingly allow ourselves to be controlled and influenced on who to be, what to do and how to behave.

Sure, his death was unexpected and brought many people sorrow but so was the death of (insert the name of someone who died this minute).

So no reaction at your death would be totally acceptable and understandable because you were never on TV or you released no records? Becuase you#re no star?

You are as important as anybody else in this game.

Namaste,
