This is one of the grey areas of a conspiracy website. We discover that in all likelihood we have been lied to and manipulated by willful deceit,
propaganda and mind control, and worse yet... by a large segment of society which is deluded and convinced of that a very improbable world is actually
factual. Once among others who reveal cracks in the myth and uncover deceptions, who discover clues and evidence of manipulation by covert groups, who
break down and try to reassemble the puzzle in countless ways, we know only one thing: things are not what they appear to be. This brings us all to
become fragile in our belief systems, at least to a certain measure. And this is a natural and healthy reaction to the wool being pulled from our eyes
and the rug being pulled from under our feet.
What we are then tasked to do is to reconstruct what our reality in fact genuinely is, and there are so many possibilities that it is practically
unachievable to do in a larger sense, and at minimum quite difficult to do partially even when armed with a great deal of education and experience.
This is where intelligence becomes both one's ally and one's enemy. Because our thoughts have been to a great extent formed within a matrix which is
no longer validated by our beliefs, thus this instrument - our mind - which we use to reconfigure our reality construct, is not well adapted to
defining an entirely different reality. The more smarts we put into it, the more likely we are to trip ourselves up. My only advice in this situation
is to arm oneself with patience, to realize that contrary to schooling where you are supposed to have instant replies to every question, in this
endeavor we have to sometimes go for years on end without as much as a hint of a valid answer. Yet, with time and committment, answers tend to appear
and a new vision of the world does end up emerging on its own, providing a battery of plausible and likely truths, even if they don't answer all of
Recovering from the discovery that there are conspiracies behind the scenes, and parties who manipulate much of our social and mental reality,
requires almost a form of convalescence - for the shockwave of this revelation can easily result in a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, where
the battle is not waged with bullets and bombs but with thoughts and perceptions, and where one deals with the same shock that the purpose and facts
we were sold are blatant lies. This is one of the deepest forms of psychological trauma, unsought and unwanted reality shift associated with a harsh
lesson in distrust:
Similarly to those afflicted wtih PTSD, we need to have some form of mutual support among truthers. And this should not be about who agrees with
whatever theory, or who is right or wrong in their interpretations, but an unconditional support even for those with whom we disagree, because we are
all confronted with the same uphill battle of fighting our way out of a wide array of false dreams we were once "charmed into believing". These are
the layers of onion skin we must shed one by one, taking care to not lose too many at one given time in order to not lose all of our reference points
too quickly. Then it is a simply matter for each of us to get used to wandering in the dark, until we find our own orientation while helping one
another on our respective pathways to truth.
With our thoughts for our ATS brother Jazzscapez and his family...
