Nine things you need to know about the surfacing quantum society.
1/9 We are witnessing the birth of the quantum society (QS), which is the successor of the market society. In practical terms, this is the shift from a deterministic application of reality to a generative one that will have tectonic implications for our systems.
What does that mean?
2/9 The market society is the ultimate expression of the reductionist/materialist paradigm. It is a society which universally asserts the market’s authority to assign/determine value to all terrestrial resources, including human ‘capital’.
3/9 Once productized, we are atomized. Taught from the earliest of ages to maximize our potential in order to sell our value into the market. Where we become components of a de-spiritualized materialist, industrial mechanism. And where our destiny is wholly dependent on a spectrum of external, determined market forces.
4/9 Quantum society is the direct inversion of the market society. Because constituents of the quantum society gain agency and power by entraining their thoughts and actions to the features of the surfacing hyperobject of the quantum field – entanglement, complementarity etc.
5/9 At the subatomic level – which only a reductionist would claim has no connection to our economic and political experiences – we are a limitless domain of infinite potential. This is where we potentiate our experience at the wave-to-particle conversion plane that we know as 3D.
6/9 The quantum society – which is being materialized as a procedural milestone of human evolution, and not as some human-driven effort – ‘generates’ its social/political/economic experiences from the quantum field.
7/9 The market ‘paradigm’ – which at this stage is governed and administrated by intelligent algorithms – understands this existential threat. It knows that in order to maintain its control and authority over a population that has the innate power to generate its experiences it must convince its population that ‘reality’ is deterministic so they continue to ‘generate’ the market paradigm.
8/9 This is because at the cornerstone of a stable quantum society [in which humans have access to their reality-generating creative agency] there is the need for a paradigmatic authority. One that governs the central organizing narrative which, as Yuval Noah Harari told us, is a figment of our imagination. Otherwise it’s bedlam. The market paradigm has provided this cosmological ballast for 200 years, superceding and augmenting the reductionist scientific paradigm, which arose from the Copernican revolution. These are both in decline now.
9/9 When you begin to see the ‘world’ through these eyes, you will find yourself in the depths of a Platonic Cave, shackled to stare upward at a sphere upon which some phantom minority are parading the shadows of a reality we cannot alter or disrupt.
This is the long-awaited moment of emergence.
Aspirational addendum: the role of the quantum initiate is to actualize the new world by grasping its parameters. And to begin the process of scrubbing our genetic and experiential programming of false narratives so that we can generate without being hijacked by old programs.
Note: I use the image of the dragonfly in these conversations because its metamorphosis is the closest biological analogy that exists to what we are experiencing. It is also the symbol of Gene Key 55, which advents the shift from victimization – the defining illusion in the reductionist-market paradigm – to freedom – which is the new currency for all who (re)awaken to their quantum potential.
I believe a paradigm shift is occurring in our collective awareness of the nature of reality.
For me, Quantum Field Theory (QFT) — and humanity’s slow migration/immersion to the portals that allow for its understanding and integration — is the prime driver for the ‘chaos’ of multiverses that has gripped our political, social, and biological narratives. We are seeing the slow detangling of an ancient cosmological authority which has ruled our paradigm for millennia through its assertion of external, or materialist, determiners of our ‘reality’.
This hegemonic deterministic order, which asserts itself upon human lives and societies, places us in a scientifically-backed caste system with little hope for creating authentic agency in our lives outside of economic markets, political systems, and genetic inheritance.
Which of course, simply benefits elites. So no wonder this outdated worldview has been allowed to perpetuate itself through the academies which house and finance leading (Cartesian) quantum theoreticians, who are highly programmed reductionists governing a major scientific domain — QFT — that is anything but reductive. If anything, as the baseline for the creating impetus of all matter and its expressions, QFT is the whole shebang.
But with the maturing of QFT and the broader understanding of its key features — entanglement, complementarity, and observer-driven phenomena — it is becoming increasingly clear that quantum effects influence events in the political, social, and economic domains.
Which poses a direct threat to the deterministic order.
Perhaps there is no better advocate of this paradigm shift than David Bohm, the theoretical physicist who more poetically than any modern thinker, challenged the authority of the reductionist tyrants.
Addressing a conference in 1990, he explained:
“Science has begun to replace religion as the major source of the worldview. And therefor if science takes a fragmentary worldview, it will have a profound effect on consciousness. The ‘wholeness’ is a kind of attitude, or approach, to the whole of life. If we can have a coherent approach to reality, then reality will respond coherently to us. But nature has been profoundly affected by our way of thinking on the Earth. And if we move toward coherence, we will produce the results we intend, rather than the results we don’t intend. We will be more orderly, harmonious. We will be happier.
The major source of unhappiness is that we are incoherent and therefor producing results that we don’t really want. And then trying to overcome them while we keep on producing them.”
QFT has implications and outcomes at every level and sector of our society. I relate this to the notion of a ‘hyperobject’, a term which describes:
1. computational (“the hyper object is a computational surface that can traverse other objects, other object networks, and be traversed”),
and now, with 2020:
3. biological and socio-political phenomena.
The Quantum Field is its own hyperobject, which poetically churns ‘beneath’ the surface of spacetime, poking its angles, curves, and edges through into our world progressively over time and across all ‘contexts’. So that what started as a scientific enquiry and then the revelation of an entirely new branch of physics (or the only branch as far as I am concerned), now is having its moment socially as well. The reality is that anyone who is pursuing a new general theory of the nature of reality cannot begin and end in the scientific context. It is happening in all contexts, albeit incrementally and very abruptly.
We live in a time of a growing splintering of observer-driven realities and entangled phenomena. This is akin to the discovery of heliocentrism in that it requires human societies to adapt to the new frontier. And it carries existential risks.
For those people who are not versed in and comfortable with the new reality, this will be an extremely frightening time. Because it demands that they have either a wildly developed internal sense of what is ‘true’ and ‘safe’ or they will hunger for a wildly confident authoritarian locus that can give them direction and safe harbor.
But let us be clear, the QFT is non-dual.
In the quantum field, there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. There is simply a spectrum of vibrational signatures and emissions that will populate and materialize the ‘physical world’ based on how the ‘authors’ of the transmutational mechanism (ie wave–>particle) generate moment-to-moment reality.
Please understand: a (r)evolution in our understanding of the nature of reality – and in which QFT is fundamental – also brings a new understanding of human potential. That, based on the science, is limitless.
I have written about this a lot in this blog, here is one encapsulation.
We no longer live in a deterministic universe in which humans simply have to ‘do the best they can’ with what is available…. no.
Now we begin to inhabit the new threshold in which we discover we alone are the generators of our own welfare, of our own destiny and ultimately, when we get our hands on the generative controls, our own reality. This means the destruction of the slave economies which have helped us build our amazing but, yes, over-heating civilization. And what we are seeing now, in my opinion, is a move at the elite levels — consciously or unconsciously — to obfuscate and scramble portals to the quantum paradigm so that it cannot be accessed and activated at the individual level.
All because the ‘awakening’ — like the system upgrade jacked into the robots in WestWorld season 1 — is actually producing a new state of being.
A primary feature of which is the integration of a new tier of conscious authority, which is akin the the bicameral mind described by Julian Jaynes as the neural precursor to our present ‘consciousness’.
I will be writing a lot about this at some point!
But as a parting remark, I do want to encourage those of us who actually aspire to breaching the quantum, to go deep and try to surrender our instinctive, dualistic judgments about people and ideologies.
Those are conditioned responses to false binaries.
As a primary doctrine going forward, I submit: we simply cannot aspire to accessing the quantum field unless we truly believe all is of the all, but most importantly we are of it, entirely. And that that which presents itself as against us, or as ‘the opposite’ of us, does so only for our own benefit and evolution. The mission of advanced societies is to understand this maxim and behave accordingly. Meaning that if we are going to survive this evolutionary thrust, instead of getting wrapped up in the identity dramatics of who and what we are ‘against’, we need to identify the specific failing that is being identified and respond to that.
Immediately and creatively.
This was perhaps the most enduring contribution of historian Arnold Toynbee who’s theory about the law of challenge and response is the definer of achieving civilizational stasis, which comes:
“…not as a result of superior biological endowment or geographical environment, but as a response to a challenge in a situation of special difficulty which rouses him to make a hitherto unprecedented effort.”
Alan Watts — whom the woke love to quote until they are pressed to deploy his quantum maxims practically — had the final word on the subject, stating spectacularly: “You are the whole system.”
Fortunately, the wisdom is — and has been all — around us for millennia.
From Ken Wilber:
It is often said that in today’s modern and postmodern world, the forces of darkness are upon us. But I think not; in the Dark and the Deep there are truths that can always heal. It is not the forces of darkness but of shallowness that everywhere threaten the true, and the good, and the beautiful, and that ironically announce themselves as deep and profound. It is an exuberant and fearless shallowness that everywhere is the modern danger, the modern threat, and that everywhere nonetheless calls to us as savior.
Love to all.
When I was a very young child, I experienced a physical/sexual trauma that, though I did not know it until I was well into my 20s, locked me into a reactive mode of being (and an adversarial perception of the external world) that was very destructive and, seemingly, unalterable. Drug abuse, chronic failed relationships, recurring bi-polar episodes. A kind of strange loop that always returned me to the same wounds, the same defeats, the same feeling of powerlessness over my life.
But the purpose of this admission is not pity.
Because, being born into the privileged family of white Canadians, I was able to exercise a relatively high degree of agency and self-determination despite this very powerful seminal trauma. This is evidenced in the formal education and career I have had, and the freedom with which I have been able to traverse the planet and its various societies and sub-cultures. And it is for this last blessing I am most grateful.
Suffice it to say, I have always found most comfort, and mentorship, with the outcasts and the heretics who I found when all appeared to be lost.
At some point along the way, a part of my self began to awaken to a source of healing and power that was not part of the traditional, conventional psychotherapeutic modalities. In mind-bending ways, I was oriented toward a ‘mechanism’ I could access in order to transform and unlock my present and my future, by visiting and altering my past. Essentially, breaking out of the false construction of linear time that we have been inducted into for millennia (by the Temporal Authority).
It has been a very gradual process, as I have had to learn a lot on my own, stumbling and bumbling into the matrix of ephemeral levers that operate my spacetime voyager. And I am here to tell you that it is real and that it works. But I would never have found it if I hadn’t been locked in some fortress of predetermination by an event that I neither asked for nor deserved.
I can’t possibly begin to describe the long slow peeling back of the layers of a cosmic onion that led me first to experience, and then to understand, what I now know as the liberationist instrument that is the quantum field.
That’s the term we use for it now. Even though it has (of course) always existed — and been understood — by those that the Authority marginalized and exiled or executed by calling them shamans and mystics and witches.
If science was capable of it, there would be a kind of collective embarrassment in the awareness that they have only just breached the (r)evolutionary implications of what certain people have known about for millennia.
Or as Hagrid tells Harry Potter on their first trip to Diagon Alley.
“I don’t know how the Muggles manage without magic.”
For the past five years, in a very quiet little blog, I have been struggling to explain the power of quantum as a source of political and social liberation. And that is only because, as someone who was massively damaged and totally unhelped by any of the therapeutic modalities, when I actually, verifiably experienced the shift in my present by reconditioning my perception of and experience of the past, I simply could not stay quiet.
I guess I have always felt that heretics and mystics are brand strategists for the civilization. And that it is their job to use poetry to engineer cognitive and behavioral shifts that have the potential to redefine the moment… and the future… for the betterment of all.
Because their target market is… the species.
There is perhaps no better a personification of this ideal than the late Irish poet and mystic John O’Donahue. Listening to this interview he did with Krista Tippet, I was scrambling to catch and note the subtle, humble, nuanced bombs he was dropping about the ‘pedagogy of interiority’.
At one point he talks about the word ‘threshold’, which comes from the word thrashen — to separate the grain from the husk. For him, thresholds are lines that separate ‘two territories of spirit,’ and, he continues:
‘if we cross worthily, what we do is heal the patterns of repetition that were in us, that caught us somewhere. And in our crossing… we cross onto new ground. Where we just don’t repeat what we’ve been through in the last place we were.’
This sentiment expresses so succinctly what I have been trying to say about the current moment. We are at a threshold, and a new territory in terms of a paradigm that encircles the human understanding of the nature of reality.
More, as someone who has spent the best years of their life trying to figure out ways to undermine and overthrow the reigning geographic and cosmological empires — and obviously failing — when I discovered the promise of this untapped resource, I felt it was my obligation.
Because the implications of quantum liberationism are not confined to manipulation of spacetime. At its fundamental dimension, quantum offers the promise of a radical degree of self-determination. One that lies at mastering the point of conversion that collapses waves of infinite potential into particles of self-materialization.
But don’t tell scientists that. They’ll say that quantum science has no applications to social science. But that is because they are perfectly happy with the ruling order. They’re not trying to overthrow ‘reality’, they just want to understand it. Which is fine, they should do that.
As far as I am concerned, I have seen enough to understand the reality that we are living in. Especially when we can now essentially pre-determine the social and economic categories that a specific individual will attain based on the zip code they were born into.
That isn’t freedom in an sense of the word. That is a caste system. And we’re not here for that. Not at this point in our civilizational trajectory.
So, for anyone who is actually and actively pursuing the birth of a new paradigm in which every human, no matter where they are born or to what culture or gender gets an equal and fair shot at determining their destiny:
Quantum is the revolution.
I don’t care if it’s theoretical. Given the alternative (which I assume is voting for another political candidate, operating in a political system that is designed to service the interests of the elite), what do we have to lose?
take that to the next level: the cumulative genetic and epigenetic narratives of our ancestral and present-day existences do not actually define who we are, even though this is precisely what the current (materialist) paradigm dictates.
Quantum liberationism heralds the unmaterialized potential which lies at the substratum of wave, which IS the primary realm and determiner of existence and ‘reality’ in 3D.
Or, as Joe Dispenza — the only person out there who is actively testing the science of quantum healing — writes:
Energy is the epiphenomenon of matter.
This is the equivalent of discovering a new territory, one with limitless resources and potential for self-actualization.
Seriously, hold that in your mind for a moment.
Because if a single mom with three kids who works two jobs and barely gets by can shift her dependence from:
A) the hope that the magical invisible hand of the capitalist economy will give her family majesty and power over their destinies
B) mastering the latent and limitless power of reality-creation that lies within an ancient spiritual technology located within each human being.
Then we are onto something that is actually dangerous to those who rule this ghetto paradigm called materialist reductionism.
(Which they do through the illusion of scarcity.)
This is the threshold we crossing now.
Into a new paradigm.
Because, in the quantum liberationist view: there is no such thing as scarcity.
There is only infinite potential.
So, for those of us who are committed to building something new and enduring and fair, we need to frame what it is we are ACTUALLY doing. And if its not re-patterning and re-engineering the paradigm around universal access to equal self-actualization, then its just the perpetuation of the old system and the failure to cross the threshold which we have organically reached as a tipping point for the next evolutionary thrust of human civilization.
I would argue that TRUE POWER resides in gaining access to the generators of reality, which reside and occur at the sub-stratum plane of pre-particle waveforms.
I leave you with a quote that I believe captures the sentiment of this journey I have been on. It’s from Nietzsche (written in 1882):
…And now, after having been long on the way in this fashion, we Argonauts of the ideal, who are more courageous perhaps than prudent, and often enough shipwrecked and brought to grief, nevertheless, healthier than people would like to admit, dangerously healthy, always healthy again. It would seem, as if in recompense for it all, that we have a still undiscovered country before us, the boundaries of which no one has yet seen, a beyond to all countries and corners of the ideal known hitherto, a world so over-rich in the beautiful, the strange, the questionable, the frightful, and the divine, that our curiosity as well as our thirst for possession thereof, have got out of hand alas! That nothing will now any longer satisfy us!”
For many of us, the world we have known for our lifetimes is changing rapidly and shifting into something very daunting. The new paradigm seems to be dominated by conflict, chaos, and catastrophe. Especially if the news and social media are the mediums through which they are getting their information.
This kind of nihilism is the symptom of a civilization that does not have a clear vision of its future. Or a clear understanding of its past. We are in very critical need for a new story that can inform the beliefs that form the basis of our understanding of reality and the behaviors that follow from them.
For the past couple of years I have been fortunate to work in a team focused singularly on the challenge of climate change and in helping to frame a new narrative for that massive threat to our societies.
It is the most profound irony that many devoted environmentalists vehemently reject the idea that the Earth is alive and conscious and ensouled – aka Gaia theory – because it’s not provable and thus not scientific. Which in their eyes threatens their position in the face of the current conflict against climate deniers who are waging a ‘war against science’.
I get it.
But the idea that people who are authentically and earnestly fighting for the Earth would deny her of a status that could actually, finally activate the hundreds of millions of others who are otherwise asleep and entranced in the face of her destruction is… one of the great paradoxes of our time.
Not for much longer.
We live in an age where empirical ‘science’ no longer works. Quantum physicists now openly admit the tool of their enquiry is woefully insufficient for determining the nature of reality. And the reductionists fall over themselves to deny that their school is one of the single most culpable for the ethos of non-holism that made the earth into a plane ripe for unyielding ecological exploitation and devastation.
But as the historical philosopher Arnold Toynbee taught us, the growth and decline of civilizations is a spiritual process.
Humankind, he wrote, “achieves civilization, not as a result of superior biological endowment or geographical environment, but as a response to a challenge in a situation of special difficulty which rouses [them] to make a hitherto unprecedented effort.”
That is why climate change, as my dearest Gayatri Roshan teaches, is not problem. It is the solution. It is the challenge Toynbee offered us in his prophetic writings.
This is why I know that despite the very frightening and paralyzing warnings we have now been given (that our civilization has little over a decade to radically transform our way of living on the Earth or my children will not have a livable planet to pass in to theirs), I am feeling very confident about our chances.
We are are the dawning of a new Age. One which will be marked by the rediscovery of a kind of ‘science’ which is sometimes called ‘mystical’.
Mysticism requires the belief in truth without proof.
This is the hardest thing for many humans to accept. But also the most transformative because in this scientific enquiry, ‘evidence’ can only be found in the intuition and sentiment that arises from the human heart and its companion, the immortal soul.
As this year closes I see, hear, taste, smell, and, most importantly, feel the grip of ‘science’ loosening and the rise of intuition and soul-driven connection to ‘truth’ arising in the yearning of our people to birth a new vision of ‘reality’.
Yes the last few centuries have given us much in the way of ‘progress’.
2+2 indeed is 4.
And, as my friend Christopher Hitchens, the penultimate materialist, was fond of telling me, “there was time when people used to die of their teeth.” Indeed, we have come a long way. But we will have to return to our most primal roots to remember what we have forgotten.
That 1+1 is only ONE.
And in this truth we find the most potent of all visions for the future of our civilization.
Bless you all my sisters and brothers.
There is a genre of fiction that depicts humans as living in a reality that is not what it appears to be. In these stories, the heroes are captives in an elaborate prison that keeps them from realizing the true nature of reality, which is hidden behind the veil of a false world.
Done well, these tales go super-viral and connect with a deep part of the human consciousness that gives them a kind of mythological status. That is because they are profoundly subversive narratives that hint at the oldest conspiracy theories of our civilization: that we are living in some simultaneously ancient and high-tech illusion that keeps us disconnected from our true identity and its cosmic power.
The amazing thing about this category of fantasy is that it first appeared in 380 BCE; almost 2400 years ago. And that first episode remains one of the most precise and elegant renditions of a hero’s journey out of the programmed deception of our reality.
I’m talking about the Cave Allegory which appeared in the Greek philosopher Plato’s Republic. In his story a group of prisoners are shackled by their legs and necks in an underground cave. Projected on a wall in front of them are images in the shape of animals and people and objects.
The 2-dimensional shapes are what they believe the world to be.
What the prisoners do not know is that behind them is a fire. The images they see are merely shadows created by puppets which are being paraded in front of the fire by some mysterious procession of people. The apparition is enough to keep the prisoners distracted and complacent in their bondage.
And then one of the prisoners breaks free from his chains. He is suddenly able to turn around and see the fire, which blinds him momentarily. It is confusing and frightening, so he turns back to the wall and the reality he understands.
But then someone drags him up the pathway, past the fire, and out of the mouth of the cave. Again, he is angry and disoriented, but soon his eyes adjust to the light and he is able to see the world in all it’s 3-dimensional beauty and complexity.
He has awakened.
Awakened by escaping from the conjured trick of his reality and discovering the multi-dimensional truth of the world beyond his cave. For the first time, he sees animals and trees and rivers and other human beings who are not prisoners. And, when his eyes have finally adjusted to the environment, he looks up and sees the sun, which is the source that illuminates it all.
Transformed by his journey and the revelation he has been given, the prisoner runs back down into the cave to tell the others. But it is so dark that his eyes cannot adjust. He stumbles around like a blind man, ranting about a world that the others cannot understand. When they tell him they want to stay, he tries to drag them up the hill toward the light.
Faced with the threat of being turned insane by whatever exists beyond their wall and its shadows, they conspire against him and he is murdered.
The Cave allegory is the blueprint for a journey that many have attempted with varying degrees of success. The most famous of these was featured in another blockbuster story that became the best-selling book of all time: the Bible. Whether you believe that Jesus Christ existed or not, his story is an object lesson in the harrowing trials of transcending consensual reality and then returning to help others do the same.
Look what happened to him.
Instead of enshrining his journey as a lesson in reality hacking, the imperial church hijacked and distorted Christ’s teachings. Emperors and kings, and the popes that served them, had zero incentive to revealing a system of liberation to the very people they required to build and die for their worldly imperium. So they turned his life into a system of spiritual deception that still exists today.
But that doesn’t mean others didn’t carry it forward. They did, but under the cover of secret societies that protected the knowledge at all costs.
The Mystical Underground
Plato was a profound mystic. Which means he believed in a process through which humans can interact with the non-material, or spiritual realm. Central to his mystical teachings was that this plane is a source of truths about our world that can not be attained with our intellect. Instead, there is a hidden path to reaching that kind of “enlightenment” that can only be known by those who learn the hidden forces which govern our reality.
For the rarified class who were initiated into this knowledge, there was not only the promise of a kind of inner peace. But also the freedom and power that comes with living outside of the limitations that rule the rest of humanity. It was, and continues to be, a highly guarded and subversive form of spiritual technology.
In the Cave, Plato is telling his students that without an understanding of our world’s dimensional infrastructure, they are operating in a kind of trance which prevents them from knowing the nature of their reality. It is also about the difficult and isolating journey that must be undertaken if one wants to escape the limited experience that confines most people to a life of servitude and minor gratification. In the mystical, or mystery, schools that were formed in the centuries and millennia after Plato, these were taught as a system of specific beliefs, actions, and processes that one must undertake in order to break out of the illusion.
But Plato does not reveal those liberationist mystical steps to the reader, relying instead on very simple metaphors that keep the story in the Cave. There are practical reasons for this, chief among them: the high level of secrecy that surrounds this mystical knowledge by the elite group who possess it.
In order to access this esoteric intelligence, one has to be initiated through rigorous tests to prove that they can be trusted. And that they understand the threat posed to the Earthly rulers by those who seek to master the art of escaping this plane.
So its no surprise there weren’t any viral hits in the Cave category for a long time. That’s not to say there weren’t mystics. They just stayed underground. Until the power of the church began to fade and science became the new religion, then the mystical heresies went from being outlawed to simply ridiculed. Though the effect was the same:
Humanity remained in its cage.
Any references to our self-imposed confinement in the modern epoch were now ‘poetic’ and metaphorical and thus, meaningless. Instead of mapping the way out of this dungeon, William Blake, the Romantic poet and visionary, distilled Plato’s Cave down to a two liner.
If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite.
For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.
The only traceable impact of which was the inspiration behind the naming of two highly psychedelic products: Aldous Huxley’s book about a mescaline trip, and Jim Morrison’s legendary 60’s era rock band.
So it was that humanity had to wait two millennia for the next blockbuster installment of the reality jailbreak series to drop. But when it arrived, it was a fucking masterpiece.
Enter The Matrix
The Wachowski’s 1999 sci-fi cult masterpiece brought us a hacker named Neo who is dragged up the steep incline from his own 2D flat screen reality by a hyper-cool revolutionary named Morpheus, who offers an explanation of the illusion in words that Plato never could have conjured.
“The Matrix is everywhere. It’s all around us, even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth.”
“What truth?” Neo asks.
“That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison…for your mind….Unfortunately, no one can be…told what the Matrix is…you have to see it for yourself.”
Then Morpheus opens a container which holds two pills : a blue one, and a red one. He puts one in each hand, and holds them out to Neo. The rest is tattooed to the consciousness of a whole generation of redpill neo-Neos.
How many of us watched that scene and felt something we had never experienced before? A celluloid-induced deja vu that removed us from our virtual reality and illuminated a higher system of truth about the nature of our earthly experience?
But it was fleeting. Because then we went back to school or work or whatever occupied our days and remembered only that we had seen The Matrix, not that we were living in it.
It’s no wonder. Because after Morpheus’ description of the hi-tech stockade we are living in, there was no explanation of how to get out. Neo mastered the Matrix by leveling up his combat and parkour skills in response to Morpheus’ monotone provocations to “let it all go, Neo. Fear…doubt…and disbelief. Free your mind…”
It became impractical nonsense. Necessarily.
Because that is precisely the engine that drives (successful) third acts of modern science fiction cinema. To be commercially viable, The Matrix had to be an action film, not a treatise on the mystical ladder out of terrestrial bondage.
So once again, humanity was shown their prison, but not given a key.
Two years later, planes smashed into the World Trade Center and we entered an entirely new paradigm that placed the enemy firmly within the terrestrial framework. In the vacuum created by the War on Terror, there simply was no bandwidth for adventurist mysticism which frames the struggle of humanity against an external force that uses violence and dualism to keep them divided and enslaved.
But now, two decades later, we are moving into a highly dangerous phase of our history and there is an urgency to engineer a civilizational paradigm shift that will break us out of this holographic cocoon.
One that integrates an ancient and secret system of rungs on a mystical ladder that provides a map and path out of what, in the eyes of the great (r)evolutionary mystics, is a highly developed illusion designed to keep us locked within this third dimension that is ruled by time and space.
What will be the next installment in the reality jailbreak series launched by Plato 2400 years ago?
i have come to understand that my reality is generative, not deterministic.
i mean we do not live in a paradigm that is set and pre-determined as we are taught. but rather, one that is generated by the inputs (thoughts, feelings, actions) of the human beings that are generating, or transmitting, it.
further, the engine that generates this reality – from the transmitting being to the experience they are having – is something we have come to lazily call ‘consciousness’, but which is actually a much more quantifiable factor, which can be described as vibratory frequency.
reality is a generative construction that moves from the inside out. not the outside in.
two points about that:
- the best way to understand this way of seeing reality is as an algorithmically-driven platform. in other words, reality is created by highly tuned formulas that convert non-material impulses to a material experiential realm.
- this is confusing for many because we currently inhabit a paradigm that is actually highly deterministic (ie. for 99% of humanity, their experience feels very much beyond their own power of creation). and that is because humans have been conditioned to believe that that is what reality is; something that is generated from outside of them. so we are generating a deterministic reality paradigm. a very tricky business indeed.
so the vast majority of human beings believe we are born into a world paradigm that they cannot change and which they just have to accept. this has unquantifiable impact on the way that we live in the world and what we believe is possible.
the first step toward a reboot of the human operating system is to teach our people that the reality paradigm is generative and thus transactional: which means that we are in a constant state of negotiation with the reality we are experiencing.
it is created by, and for, us.
this is a revelation of the highest (r)evolutionary order. it means any single individual can gain agency in the process of reality-creation by learning about the power their thoughts, emotions, and actions have in creating their moment-to-moment experience.
because what we are experiencing is a direct output of our vibrational state and it can change moment-to-moment based on the nature and content of the vibration we are emitting.
in other words: if reality is generative and transactional, it is transmutable.
the great problem is that certain groups have more generative power than others. and so it is that some can say, “this is your world, i am just living in it.” in most cases, these generator populations have no idea of the power they wield in creating the experience of others. this is by design.
understanding the nature of reality, and our ability to re-orient ourselves within it, will be the key determining factor of whether the human civilization escapes the extinction algorithm we are currently programmed for.
