The mass hallucination of culture is like a tunnel. When you look into the tunnel, all you can see is darkness. It’s only when you are able to turn around and look out of the tunnel that you finally “See” the light. Want to find out which way you are facing?
Social programming and mass hallucination
The light of truth can expose the mass hallucination of Western culture. But, people still struggle to face the light. Because the light of reason illuminates only what the mind allows it to see. The light of reason shows the hypnotizing effect of social programming. ancient This mass hallucination isn’t new. It is tactic as old as the ancient religions of Egyptian, Babylonian, and Persian. These paradigms did not dissolve into ancient history. They became the bedrock of the Abrahamic religions (The Western Organized Religions of the Semitic origin, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam).
mass hallucination admission
The 18th and 19th Centuries brought a number of groundbreaking scientific and archeology discoveries. These discoveries include the Rosetta Stones discovery in 1799 and the Behistun inscription of 1800. This enabled archeologists to decipher many ancient texts that had been unreadable. Many great thinkers thought the truths of this illumination would dispell the mass hallucination of the Abrahamic traditions. Surely, no reasonable person could cling to them once they knew the true origins. Surely, the light of illumination on their sacred texts and doctrines would set people free. But, they were wrong. Because, again, the light of reason illuminates only what the mind allows it to see. The Chuch admitted to its origins. However, this admission was more or less private. But, it was recorded in a most eloquent way for its own hierarchy:
“The Catholic Encyclopedia and and International Work, Vol. 14 (1907). Symbolism in a greater or lesser degree is essential to every kind of external worship, and we need not shrink from the conclusion that in the matter of baptisms and washings, of genuflection’s and other acts of reverence, of lights and sweet smelling incense, of flowers and white vestures, of spiritual unction’s and the imposing of hands, of sacrifice and the rite of the Communion banquet, the Church has borrowed without hesitation from the common stock of significant actions known to all periods and to all nations. In such matters as these, Christianity claims no monopoly or originality.”
how The Mass Hallucination Continues
It is said that the best liars are those who believe the lie is true. So, get people to believe a lie and they will pass it along as truth. Attaching these lies to a person’s core paradigm creates a social programming mechanism for control. It can control a wide range of thought, values, and behaviors.
Start the indoctrination early in life and a child adopts these fabrications as though they are factual. Keep up the indoctrination process through mandatory weekly or semi-weekly meetings and you are able to then dictate everything from personal relationships to commerce. Consequently, even though the basis of the paradigm is logically false, historically false, it can still thrive. Logical reasoning is easily overcome with the mass hallucination of religious dogma and doctrine. Once you are in this tunnel of mass hallucination you are kept facing inward toward the darkness.
What you can do
There are two perspectives. The first is for those who are facing the darkness into the tunnel. That is those who ascribe to one of the sects of the Abrahamic traditions. The second perspective is for those facing the outward toward the light.
Facing inward toward the darkness
First of don’t be upset if you count yourself as a believer in one of the sects of the Abrahamic tradition. This information is not meant as an attack. It’s meant to be food for thought. And, we realize it brings up issues you’ve been taught to reject.
Rather we hope this discussion will encourage you to do your own research. Use resources from “outside” of your own paradigm. That is don’t search for opinions that support the dogma and doctrine. Rather, use historical, scientific and archeological sources from outside your belief system. Start with any doctrine and see where it leads.
Like any teacher, all we are attempting to do is point the way. We are trying to honest and illuminate. However, asserting you are facing light while immersed in a sect of the Abrahamic tradition is part of the mass hallucination.
Don’t get us wrong. We absolutely agree that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Check out the links below to discover the spiritual technologies passed down through the generations. These are processes for expanding awareness and opening the doors to higher states of consciousness. Perhaps these techniques are what the great sages and teachers were attempting to point to? See how spiritual exploration is the opposite of religion.
Facing outward toward the light
The work of the warriors of light has never been more difficult. Religious extremists are more volatile than ever. Their leaders see the mass hallucination starting to erode. The paradigm as a whole is beginning to shrink in size and influence. More young people are awakening to the facts behind the mythology. And, more people are leaving these sects as the facts become more readily available.
So, Do what you can, where you are, with the resources you have. Also, plant the seeds of facts. Support science and the preservation of the archaeological and historical facts.
