According to the Father of Propaganda an Invisible Government Controls Our Minds with a Thought Prison

“Who are the men who without our realizing it, give us our ideas, tell us whom to admire and whom to despise, what to believe about the ownership of public utilities, about the tariff, about the price of rubber, about the Dawes Plan, about immigration; who tell us how our houses should be designed, what furniture we should put in them, what menus we should serve on our table, what kind of shirts we must wear, what sports we should indulge in, what plays we should see, what charities we should support, what pictures we should admire, what slang we should affect, what jokes we should laugh at?” ~ Edward Bernays, Propaganda Authored by Edward Bernays and published in 1928, the book Propaganda still holds its position as the gold standard for influencing and manipulating public behavior. Drawing on his expertise in psychology while using the language of manipulation, […] Read More

2017: Scientists Get Closer to Understanding Why (And When) We Dream

Like everyone else, I’ve had all sorts of dreams. Most are about ordinary, everyday things – sometimes I’m back at school, or hanging out with people I’ve never met, or getting hundred-thousand-dollar book deals. Other times, I’ll be hiding behind a tree watching people get vaporized by space aliens. I guess it depends on my mood. The funny thing about dreams, though, is that while everyone has them all the time, we still don’t understand them very well. They’re an enigma, and that doesn’t even include the wonder that is lucid dreaming. Luckily, a team of scientists led by Francesca Siclari at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have just published some interesting research that might reveal why dreams happen, and when. Life Could Be A Dream They’ve confirmed, at least, that dreaming does seem to happen while we sleep, and not just during REM (or Rapid Eye Movement). Dreams can occur during […] Read More

IS THE MONEY MINDSET THE PROBLEM?

Julie Telgenhoff| I am personally on a spiritual journey. My spirit inhabits a physical vehicle so that I can take action when I feel passionate about something on that spiritual level. When I woke up to our false reality, I immediately began digging into information in order to get the truth about our false history. I went through all the stages of grief during that time. Unfortunately, my youngest was still in high school when that occurred and because there were no others of influence in his life around me who were becoming aware at the same time as me, he did not understand, and it created much pain and hurt between us. It has been almost 4 1/2 years since that time, and I am done with information digging for information and/or sharing that news ….I’m onto solutions. Personally, I do not believe we have much time left […] Read More

Technocracy and the Scientific Matrix

by Jon Rappoport July 27, 2015 “The creative power of the individual is downplayed or even viewed as ‘injuring the group.’ This is no accident. The whole basis of a controlled society depends on people seeing themselves as powerless and surrendering to ‘the needs of the collective.’ This amounts to a political religion—but these days, it’s ridiculously dressed up as Science, as if collectivism were a series of formulas derived from physics and biology.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport) As my readers know, I write a great about imagination, the individual, and independent thought. Some might think these “issues” are peripheral to the elite takeover of the planet, but in fact they are central. Let’s start here. As author Patrick Wood makes clear, technocracy is really all about establishing a scientific dictatorship. As he also points out, the dictatorship is based on false science. —For example, the sales-pitch called manmade […] Read More

Why Reading and Writing on Paper Beat Digital Screens For Boosting Your Brain

Research shows that writing leads to an increase in conceptual understanding, application and retention. My son is 18 months old, and I’ve been reading books with him since he was born. I say “reading”, but I really mean “looking at” – not to mention grasping, dropping, throwing, cuddling, chewing, and everything else a tiny human being likes to do. Over the last six months, though, he has begun not simply to look but also to recognise a few letters and numbers. He calls a capital Y a “yak” after a picture on the door of his room; a capital H is “hedgehog”; a capital K, “kangaroo”; and so on. Reading, unlike speaking, is a young activity in evolutionary terms. Humans have been speaking in some form for hundreds of thousands of years; we are born with the ability to acquire speech etched into our neurones. The earliest writing, however, […] Read More

The Mystery Of God & The Brain

As science has steadily undermined the long-held beliefs of religion, almost all that remains for people of faith is to say that God is and will forever be a mystery. Insofar as Einstein was religious, he possessed a feeling of awe and wonder at the mystery of the universe. But science hasn’t stopped chipping away at mystery, promising to reduce spiritual experience to measurable brain activity. It’s doubtful that belief in God, the soul, heaven and hell, and other tenets of faith will be drastically affected – polls continue to show that these things remain articles of belief for around 80-90% of responders. Will neuroscience eventually be able to locate God in our neurons, and if so, should that tiny area of the brain be excised or boosted? No doubt there are arguments on both sides, depending on whether you hold that God has been good for the human […] Read More

2014: Why You Should Switch Off The Television & Be Free!

Personal breakdowns may occur throughout our lives, it is the choices we make that ultimately determine how we deal with these experiences. If we have a bad experience, one of two things can happen. We can see the experience as a lesson and a blessing in disguise, or we can see the experience as a failure and ourselves as the victim! When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, “I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process.” Being Aware Of Experiences This is a good example of the primary difference between people who are aware of their experiences and those who are at the mercy of their experiences. If Edison had stopped before his discovery he […] Read More

2014: A Neuroscientist Explains What Happens To Your Brain When You Meditate

Meditation is becoming very popular lately. Perhaps it’s the anecdotal evidence friends are sharing with each other or the fact that more and more science is coming out to confirm the benefits of meditation that it’s encouraging people to take up the practice. Meditation has shown to decrease stress, increase happiness,quality of life, increase gray matter in the brain, making people more compassionate, lowering blood pressure, increasing memory and more. A great series of benefits from such a peaceful practice. Meditation can be discouraging at times. It’s not easy to calm your mind, stop the thoughts and get into a space that is quiet. Since many of us, especially in western culture, are never taught to explore this practice at a young age it can be even harder to get  into a quiet meditative space realizing that we are not our thoughts or mind. If you are discouraged  you […] Read More

2013: Wake Up from the Awake Dream

by Paul Levy When you begin to wake up in the dream you realize that the seemingly external dreamscape, be it your night dream or waking dream, is not separate from you. More than that, you realize that the seemingly external dreamscape that you find yourself in is somehow mysteriously connected to your mind. Just like the quantum physicists tell us, there is no objective universe, and the very act of observing the universe changes the universe. When you realize this, you understand that how you view this seemingly external dream has an immediate effect on how the dream appears. The two processes are simultaneous, mutually arising processes that happen in no time. Once you realize that how you view the universe immediately impacts on how it manifests, why not view it in a way that will wake you up? Why not view your life as if you are […] Read More
