This information is twisted.

And bringing Machiavelli into just adds to the confusion because many people have no idea who he was or what he wrote.

You have to be able to confront evil to investigate this stuff. You have to be able to "think like a criminal" if you want to spot them. But you don't have to be one!

This "research" proves nothing and accomplishes nothing positive.
What I accomplishes is more and more isolation of free thinkers like us. The want us to turn to each other. When the sheep accept the condition these studies revealed. We would be pushed more and more in a corner. Until you are exterminated. And the people see you as part of the problem.

This text is becoming dangerous


ATTENTION: All you rule-breakers, you misfits and troublemakers - all you free spirits and pioneers - all you visionaries and non-conformists ... Everything that the establishment has told you is wrong with you - is actually what's right with you. You see things others don’t. You are hardwired to change the world. Unlike 9 out of 10 people - your mind is irrepressible - and this threatens authority. You were born to be a revolutionary. You can’t stand rules because in your heart you know there’s a better way. You have strengths dangerous to the establishment - and it wants them eliminated, So your whole life you’ve been told your strengths were weaknesses - Now I’m telling you otherwise. Your impulsivity is a gift - impulses are your key to the miraculous, Your distractibility - is an artifact of your inspired creativity, Your mood swings - reflect the natural pulse of life, they give you unstoppable energy when you’re high and deep soulful insight when you’re low, Been diagnosed with a "disorder”? That’s society’s latest way to deny it’s own illness by pointing the finger at you. Your addictive personality is just a symptom of your vast underused capacity for heroic, creative expression and spiritual connection. your utter lack of repression, your wide eyed idealism, your unmitigated open mind - didn’t anyone ever tell you?! these are the traits shared by the greatest pioneers and visionaries and innovators, revolutionaries, procrastinators and drama queens, activists on the social scene, space cadets and mavericks, philosophers and derelicts, business suits flying fighter jets, football stars and sex addicts, celebrities with ADD, alcoholics who seek novelty, first responders - prophets and saints, mystics and change agents. We are - all - the same - you know ‘cuz we’re all affected by the way - We are - all - the same - you know ‘cuz we’re all attracted to the flame - You know in your heart that there's a natural order to life, something more sovereign than any man-made rules or laws could ever express. This natural order is called "the Way." The Way is the eternal substrate of the cosmos. It guides the very current of time and space. The Way is known by some as the Will of God, Divine Providence, the Holy Spirit, the implicate order, the Tao, reverse-entropy, life-force, but for now we’ll simply call it "the Way." The Way is reflected in you as the source of your inspiration, the source of your passions, your wisdom, your enthusiasm, your intuition, your spiritual fire - love. The Way takes the chaos out of the Universe and breathes life into it by reflecting divine order. The Way, when experienced by the mind, is genius, when perceived through the eyes is beauty, when felt with the senses is grace, when allowed into the heart ... is love. Most people cannot sense the Way directly. ... But then there are the Wayseers. The keepers of the flame. Wayseers have an unexplainable knack for just knowing the Way. They sense it in their very being. They can’t tell you why or how they arrived at the right answer. They just know it in their core. They can’t show their work. So don’t ask. Their minds simply resonate with the Way. When the Way is present, so are they. While others are blind to it, and society begs you to ignore it, “the Way” stirs you inside. Neurological repression blocks most people’s awareness of the Way - censoring all thoughts and impulses from the unconscious is their prefrontal cortex - the gestapo of the brain - nothing which violates its socialized programming even gets through; but your mind is different. your mind has been cracked wide open to the Way - by some miraculous genetic trait, some psychotropic chemical or maybe even by the will of your very soul, your brain’s reward pathways have been hijacked - dopamine employed to overthrow the fascist dictatorship of your prefrontal cortex - now your brain is free of repression, your mind free of censorship, your awareness exposed to the turbulent seas of the unconscious - through this open doorway divine light shines into your consciousness showing you the Way. This is what makes you a Wayseer. 90% of human civilization is populated with those who’s brains are blocked to the Way. Their brains are hardwired to enforce the social programming indoctrinated since birth. Unlike you they cannot break out of this programming, because they have not yet experienced the necessary revolution of mind. These programmed people take social institutions and rules very seriously. Society is full of games programmed to keep peoples’ minds occupied so they will not revolt. These games often cause sick fixations on peculiar protocols, power structures, taboos and domination - all subtle forms of human bondage - This distinct form of madness is not only tolerated by the masses but insisted upon. The programmed ones believe in rules so forcefully they become willing to destroy anyone who violates them. Wayseers are the ones who call their bluff. Since Wayseer minds are free to reject social programming, Wayseers readily see social institutions for what they are - imaginary games. Wayseers comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. Helping those who are lost in these games and refuse to help themselves is a calling of many Wayseers. Since Wayseers are the ones who keep contact with the original source of reality - they are able to disrupt societal conventions and even governments to realign humanity with the Way. The Wayseers are an ancient lineage. A kind of priesthood - carriers of the flame - ones "in the know." There must always be Wayseers to reform the dizzying psychotic spinning gears of society - giant mindless hamster wheels obscuring the pure blue sky, keeping humanity shackled in a darkened cage - so Wayseers are called - to shed light on the madness of society - to continually resurrect the timeless transcendent Spirit of Truth - Wayseers reveal this divine truth by devoting themselves to the birth of some creative or disruptive act expressed through art or philosophy, innovations to shake up industry, revolutions for democracy, coups that topple hypocrisy, movements of solidarity, changes that leave a legacy, rebellions against policy, spirit infused technology, moments of clarity, things that challenge barbarity, watersheds of sincerity, momentous drives for charity We are - all - the same - you know ‘cuz we’re all affected by the way - We are - all - the same - you know ‘cuz we’re all attracted to the flame - This is your calling, Wayseer. You’ve found your tribe. Welcome home.

Oh b.s. Most of the conspiracy researchers I've listened to are trying desperately, often at great risk to their lives, to shine the light on the powers of darkness that create corporate monopolies, war and mayhem (as Gen. Smedley Butler clearly stated 70 some yrs ago.) Shine the light on them, they scatter like cockroaches, as Kevin Smith of the Kevin Smith Show says (not the Kevin Smith director); or Mel Fabregas of Veritas, or Coasttocoast, and so many individual researchers such as G. Edwar Griffin, Peter Levenda, Wayne Madsen, and poor murdered Dorothy Kilgallen who knew too much too soon about the JFK murder.

This kind of "finding" is just a way to try and shut us up from any attempt at exposing the criminals who run this world. As for falling into the same trap ourselves, the founders of this country foresaw that trap and created 3 branches of governments along with various checks and balances. Not perfect but at lest the saw the danger and tried to do something about forestalling it.

Try again to shut us up about "conspiracies." Realizing that the world runs on conspiracy doesn't require any deeper thinking than clear common sense and skepticism of establishment authority. And it's too late to deter us by stigmatizing. We know too many of the names and we even know where some live.

Apparently social habitat wasn't taken into consideration either. This is another "experiment" with an end goal in mind. Basically, the researchers were told to prove 'conspiracy theorists' are crazy, and thats what they set out to do. The whole thing is bs, and I would like to disregard it, but the fact is, that ppl that don't even know me or us, is going to read this, and automatically ASSume that the info is correct and not read anymore into it. Just wish the info that I gave ppl was as readily consumed as this BS.

When someone gets too close to the truth, what is the best way to deal with it? Discredit the person making the claim; a la make all CT'ers look like crack-pots.

Those who can't debate the argument, debate the man instead.

I for one would partake in covering up the landing of the moon if the circumstances presented themselves. Maybe be a secret government agent covering up alien landings or a hidden agenda.

With that said, I think that one you become a "conspiracy theorist" it opens your eyes to a new way of thinking. Your mind steps out of the box and begin to look at things with skepticism and bias. You don't believe everything that is presented to you by the media on a silver platter. You begin to question the very information that is provided to you everyday. You wonder what really happened? What are they not telling us?

If having an open eye for being lied to everyday and not trusting the media is a bad thing, then count me in.

The article is in itself of Machiavellian nature and only misleads and deceives the reader while not being totally wrong at the same time.

Thinking is generally linked to the brain. Stating the obvious here, but every thought is in some way linked to everything else in your mind and you can point out wacky connections in any combination you want and in any way you wish to focus peoples attention at. The actual punchline of the original post seems to be biased and not a real objective scientific study on the subject.

The problem with conspiracy theorists (other than unsubstantiated beliefs) is they think they got the whole world figured out, as if it can be simplified into a comic book style narrative with clear "goodies" and "baddies". Fact of the matter is, the world is chaotic and complex, with many powerful people with opposing self-interests, not some pantomime plot with the dastardly "PTB" orchestrating the world.
