Interesting for sure. I've pondered this for many years. I used to study a lot of metaphysical and other alternative views on what we really are and
what the universe is really about. At the end of the day, it does indeed appear that we as beings have far more going on than we are led to
believe....and by a long shot.
The interesting part of all of this is: whether under religious/spiritual influence or its "nemesis", a scientific/agnostic influence, one thing
remains constant...that we as beings are essentially helpless against larger forces at play unless you enlist the help of either a god or
technology...basically that there's some sort of separation between us as individuals and the universe as a whole.
I've had enough personal experiences as well as witnessing other personal experiences to establish my own belief that there is a larger connection
going on between perception and so-called objective reality. The problem is that under our own established systems, there is no way to prove it
scientifically and of course, religiously, anything out of the "norm" must be the work of the Devil or a miracle from God. Scientifically, it's just
"coincidence" or unknown phenomena. It seems all too convenient for our existing institutions for us to continue to believe we are essentially
helpless in our "reality" without the help from those that can either give us God or technology depending on which way you go.
Face it, if we truly uncover what lies dormant inside of us, and, hopefully, discover the universal love and life force that holds us and the Universe
together, the fears would vanish and amazing human abilities would become apparent and A LOT of individuals in control of financial, scientific, and
political establishments would surely be out of a job.
So, to me, what appears to be the ultimate conspiracy theory may simply be that those who benefit from our fears and dependence are fighting to keep
their jobs (and control). The ego is like a machine that was meant to serve as a survival tool but becomes our master. The powers-that-be symbolize
that collective ego that slams the door on what it doesn't understand perhaps. It only understands that which it can measure and would rather leave
the rest to "mysticism", ie, religion. Let some "god" take care of the rest...like an imaginary friend or father figure.
To add: yes, I believe that indeed, our "hidden" abilities are being used against us. Fears are being reinforced to convince us to create a chaotic,
disaster-prone, and uncertain reality. This makes us all the more dependent on governments, corporations, and other institutions for our survival and
