The landscape of the mind and mind control – by Jon Rappoport, September 6, 2013

Three important elements of mind control are: causing automatic responses to stimuli; loading the mind with false information; and propagandizing the idea that mental disorders are actual entities that exist in the mind.

I’ve written extensively about these three elements. They conspire to produce many false realities.

I’ve also refuted the notion that the mind is nothing more than the brain. If mind and brain were identical, there would be no meaning, understanding, or freedom.

The brain is made of up of the same microparticles that constitute rocks and chairs. No matter how these particles are configured in the brain, they do not equip a person to understand words on a page, or any other type of communication. Nor do they lead to the ability to make free choices.

(This, by the way, is what the whole scandal at TED talks is all about. They’ve suppressed talks by Hancock and Sheldrake, who discuss consciousness apart from the brain.)

Even when we shift focus from brain to mind, there is the myth that mind has a particular landscape. It is a territory that can be mapped. This is false.

Let’s instead call mind consciousness, which is a better term, because it implies awareness, which is dynamic and alive.

Imagine, invent, and create: beyond analyzing, this is what consciousness does. It can do it offstage, so to speak, or with the knowledge of the person.

People are educated to believe that it takes special, inborn talent to imagine and create. That is one incredibly destructive teaching. It stunts natural development to the point where passivity becomes the order of the day—and of a life.

So we have a society where a small fraction of the population ever considers that being an artist is within their grasp.

Creating art is alchemical, in the sense that it takes feeling, thought, experience and transforms them into raw fuel for the fire.

In that very immediate sense, consciousness is no longer anything that could be called static and unchanging. It moves. It creates. And it transmutes experience.

Many myths of the past suggest there is a line, a threshold, which when crossed, changes perception forever and introduces the seeker to “great mysteries.” These stories more basically are describing a change from passivity to the creative life.

The “knight errant” on his journey comes to a point where he realizes that things as they are, are never going reveal secrets of the psyche, no matter how deeply he probes them. Instead, tapping into imagination and creating that which was never there before is the key.

That is the great change. That is the threshold that is crossed.

Mind control in all its forms is designed to prevent this insight. It turns out that the vast majority of such control is self-induced. Although outside influences are involved, finally it is the person himself who consigns himself to a repetitive future of passive acceptance of things as they are.

If we look around us, we see multiple ways in which the world is being manipulated by elites. This is one layer or one path in the maze. On another path, the individual is bottling up his own power by denying and rationalizing away his imagination and inventive force.

I am talking here about the difference between living a life that eventually dumps a person into a dead-end, and living a life in the open sky of imagination.

This is exactly why I put together my two collections, The Matrix Revealed and Exit From the Matrix. I invite you to explore them.

    This is one of Jon’s shortest articles and a very well-written one I think.
    Consider his messages well!
    These most basic attitudes towards the universe and our experience in it are shared by such diverse commentators as Hubbard, who started talking about this in the 1950s, the two mentioned above – Hancock and Sheldrake – and their allies such as David Wilcock and many others in the “New Age” movement, Tanaath of the Silver Legion, those who have spoken for the Andromeda Council which include Tolec and used to include Alex Collier, and even John Kettler in a recent post of his.
    The concept that life for humans and human-like beings has been an ageless struggle between the desire for controlling domination and the desire for creative freedom is not far from wrong. And the concept that we have a tendency to build the cages that we then decide to live in also has much truth in it. Mind control, if one includes the data from past lives that a few researchers like Hubbard have come up with, is a huge subject that has shaped human behavior patterns for millions of years if not longer. Any technology that could counteract it or undo it is well worth investigating.

      Technology has played a big enough part in mind-control already. IMO we should leave well alone and let nature heal us.
      Namaste

      • lecox says:

        Wysiwyg: I use the term “technology” in its broader sense, as any consciously-developed process for handling anything. Language is a technology. Meditation is a technology. Nature is a technology! The only question is, which is most workable for the long run? Can “nature” alone undo all the damage caused to beings (as well as to planets, plants and animals) by the materialistic technologies that have been in use on earth (and on many other planets, too) for so long? This question is for the individual to answer for himself or herself.
