What it boils down to is this, we were created as slaves, ignorant, weak slaves, who are not even permitted to know their own true history. We are
merely barbarians and savages to the citizens of the brave new world, or should I say the brave old world, and are our "Owners"...
It all has to do with what we believe.
You may believe we were created as slaves, I do not. Now you may be correct in say that is how we entered this world, but I would argue our true
nature is unknown to us. We are ignorant of who we are. In truth, we were created free, and we can't now change who we are--we can only be be
deceived by this world of illusion into believing lies. The belief that we are weak slaves is a falsehood that only appear to be real.
Human beings are Eternal Beings having an physical experience in a temporal world, on this earth we are meme machines. We believe things that are not
true, that is the nature of the Matrix (i.e., the Womb in which we find ourselves). As you may know, a “meme” is a belief (a disputable opinion or
view) which functions like a virus of the mind (because of our ego-need for validation we seek to spread the meme we host).
Take notice how your own beliefs have changes over time. Now ask yourself, are you more “right” now than you were a few years ago? Is anyone? or
have we all just exchanged old memes for new ones? Clearly, the Truth hasn't changed, be we have. That struggle to know what the Truth is doesn't end
does it? It goes on and on... so what does that tell you about the nature of Truth? It tell me we may get closer and closer to the Truth over time,
but ONLY by seeing the lies, dropping misplaced beliefs, and by rejecting false authority.
When you put a bunch of these meme machines (people who breath oxygen) together and you get a Super Organism (a social structure that does not need
oxygen). The Super Organism has it’s own set of lies or false believes which must be accepted as "truth". Meme machines often know these
views/opinions are in fact lies, but because human beings are accustom to hosting lies (false beliefs) they fall into cognitive dissonance. It become
easier to accept the consensus reality of a Super Organism then remain independent and free.
In short, people sell out and find comfort belonging to a Super Organism. Why? Because that is where they get the validation they desire most.
Validation does not mean truth, it simply means feeling good about one’s self—getting an ego boost by belonging to something bigger than yourself.
Being part of a family you lost or never really had.
The effect this has on the thinking of the individual is much the same as being under the influence of a cult, you dare not leave because you would
lose too much. In this way the habit energy of the individual ego is merged with the habit energy of the collective ego. The driving force of both is
the same —survival, security and validation.
A person who goes from being an individual meme machine to being member of a cult gets an emotional pay-off because they feel like they belong—that
their life has purpose. Every individual ego wants to survive the death of the body, to have some expectation of security, and feel good. Same goes
for the Super Organism (i.e., the body politic), and it will sacrifice any individual meme machine (individual) to survive! The amazing thing is how
many meme machines become “true believers” in the body politic and will throw themselves under the bus for the Super Organism or cult to which
they “feel” they belong.
The government is a Super Organism made up of individual meme machines (citizens), and those meme machines serve that Super Organism. They are what
Eric Hoffer called “True Believers” of the body politic. They are invested in lies—because doing so ensures they have a job and can pays the
bills and makes them feel good. When faced with corruption they lack the courage to speak out--and why should they? The cost of doing so would be to
great. This forces them to see corruption as means to an end for both themselves and for the Super Organism with which they identify. Ironically, in
this process, “True Believers” often lose their individuality. They seek validation of their misplaced belief in government even above their own
security and liberty (indeed, above their own survival) so that in the end they will die for the lie.
This is what humanity must unlearn if we are species is to endure the next few generations. This awareness is the Big Shift, and in my view that is
what the world is going through right now. If there is a Truth we need to grasp, this is it: without limited government, we face unlimited
