Let’s play war. First, we need loyal soldiers. Recruitment is simple thanks to the tools of persuasion. These tools can be applied in a number of flavors from religion to race or gender. I’ve included a simple tool to generate a recruitment poster based on the method you selected. If you have chosen a religious theme distribute your posters by the oak tree at church. The social justice posters would be more effective by the flagpole at school.
Our new infantry has mustered here on this cold foggy morning to spill blood over your brain’s gentle creases. These forces are fighting for control of a rebel force hidden deep inside you. This force is pagan and primal. The intuition. It’s your gut peeled free from logic. It has no leader to parlay. The only way to control this force is to convince your pagan core it is broken. As free men, we are the custodian of our intuition. Many are persuaded to hand over these responsibilities to an external shepard. They coat-check their power believing a dark force is slumbering inside.
These armies subdue the intuition with the same battle plan. Shame can be applied emotionally i.e. you are a racist, or spiritually, i.e. you are a sinner. This blueprint is shown in the recruiting posters above. There are three beliefs necessary to control a target:
- Target was born broken
- Target cannot fix themselves
- There is offered salvation by recruiting others
These armies are injecting an ideology that is only successful when it results in inner abandonment. They successfully attach to us when we submit to an external authority for guidance. This implant shorts out the already subtle authority felt in one’s own core intuition. Both armies require and reward proselytization. Both armies use shame and self-doubt to control their followers.
Our entire lives these forces have suppressed our intuition by devaluing and shaming it with labels like “sinner” or “racist.” We convinced ourselves our inner nature is a dangerous primordial demon. We needed this fear to nudge forth a cohesive society. We tied our fingers to puppet strings as a process of cultural evolution. But beneath this lack of freedom we will always be hurting. Until our intuition comes forth and plays the drum freely, we remain slaves, open to the winds of suggestion. We are living in a rudderless psychological prison and we call it the rational mind.
This war in our mind is also fractal. The tribe outside our mind is tormented in the same way. Controls from religion and higher education attempt to subdue our tribal intuition in the same way and for the same reasons. These societal forces compete to be our mind’s captain. Before this mental serfdom we were naked in the forest. We dipped ourselves in stag blood because we felt an urge to change. These rituals birthed new identities that we pulled from deep inside us. We were rising from the power of our own mojo. We were climbing the totem of our individual life’s journey. Our identity was a fountain that kept bubbling up shouting “I AM!” We were explosive, imaginary, and ever-changing. We fucked in public. We policed ourselves with unabashed correction. Justice was brutal and subjective. The tribe was self-correcting every minute, day-after-day. Dissonance had yet to be discovered or invented. The tribe spoke clearly. The tribe forgave instantly. Hidden agendas were choked out of the group like voodoo. Politeness could be mistaken for deceit.
Something has always been there to beat your intuition into submission. The intuition can be subdued when it believes it would be better to abandon itself. This is the classic blueprint for all control dynamics. The voices we hear so loudly in our heads are these armies advancing and retreating. We go to church to enlist as a sinner. We go to college to enlist as a racist. We hoard the calories required for moral discernment by hanging our bridle on the judgments of our elders. We advertise in craigslist for society to take our reigns. We place the Shaman’s bit in our mouths because we are proud to be wanted. We believe our owner is magnanimous. We believe we are at our best when humble.
We said goodbye to the beast inside. That beautiful Chewbacca of hair and emotion is howling to the sky and he has never needed a reason. He’s calling you back to his forest moon. For many, life seems tasty behind the safety of glasses. We remain subdued and coddled by the armies of shame and the regiment of reason. So many noble soldiers chained by what they have been calling loyalty. They are starving for a chance to be wrong so they can choose another side.
This inner voice is a revolution in waiting.
Maybe you find yourself with one of these armies. Maybe you’ve caught yourself sabotaging your own side more than a few times. You’ve kept things to yourself while you process these feelings. One night while stirring, you reached under the pillow looking for a cool place to park your fingers. You discover a book titled “Manifesto for Independence.” The author’s name is your own. You smuggle this contraband to the bathroom outside your barracks. Camouflaged in the stall with your pants rolled around your ankles. Quietly, you crack open the tomb and start reading. Inside are words that unlock you. You start to believe them. You find yourself a spy in your very own mind.
It turns out that deep in your essence was a sort of sleeping prisoner. This Clockwork Orange Rambo was strapped to a barber chair for decades. Eyelids were gagged open by cold stainless pinchers. A display of unwavering resistance in the face of a giant speaker that kept screaming, “you are broken!” Again and again, year after year, and somehow, this mutant freak unhinged itself and crawled out of the cave.
And here you are panting. A fugitive from prison. You are atrophy and hunger. The raw truth of the sun is a blinding comet. Feeling the shivery withdrawals from obligation’s cold turkey. Your gut keeps revolting with chants of “We can’t be trusted!” You hear your friends and family calling you back with “Have a seat,” and “Take a break.” You remember how the system uses faith and loyalty to keep you.
Society hides your own body’s power in words like “placebo”
You have just killed your master. In his blood you introduce yourself to the inner reflection. You are a rōnin in the empire of mind. Your life is a papyrus bearing the calligraphy of time and decision. Each character falling from your pen comes from the ink of your body’s freedom. You are the painter of your self’s definition. As the world spills open from Milky Way’s sparkle, you must rise up to claim that you lived here outside of the cave.
James, I followed the interesting title as I wanted to read more about mind control. About half way trough the article you explained the blueprint and I agree, The second part reminded me the time when I used to feel the constant pull between a controlled and boring well paved logical life, and a life dangerously lead by passion down the road into the unknown but I didn’t like either of them.
You told to the reader that everything (LITERALLY EVERYTHING) a person ever hears is a lie and brings the person under mind control except the voice the person’s inner being, the beast and animal inside of us that society wants to control, that we (as controlled beings) are forced to be ashamed of. Practically you suggest to bring out the “instinct” the original and natural being in order to be free. I do not believe that this way we can achieve freedom. I think many alcoholics, pedophiles etc. would recognize that something is wrong with their inner instinct, and rather than letting it run free (in which case they would be utterly enslaved), not being able to control it, they want to get rid of it.
I’m afraid you fail to recognize that the perfect antidote of mind control is truth. I don’t know where you are coming from, but I personally believe that absolute truth does exist. I totally understand that you are tired of various religions and ideologies trying to recruit you, gain your loyalty. They hammer into your brain that you are faulty, broken and can’t help it. But you can remember the authentic “you” when you were a child. You instinctively knew when you did something wrong you regretted it, but couldn’t change it and did it again anyways with less and less resistance from your conscience. Yes conscience. Society didn’t give it to you, and it is not part of the inner beast. Our creator gave conscience to human beings. (We are not one of the animal species.)
Conscience is showing us truth, we know how we should live and we want to live that way but some invisible force prevents us from doing what we want. If we could overcome this force we could be free and live according to this truth . One of the biggest forces going against the truth is the inner “beast’s self will”. It is not society who wants to control it but we ourselves, that is our authentic childhood innocent will/conscience.
The “Do what thou wilt” satanic mantra ultimately kills conscience and enthrones the individual trapping it into it’s perpetual “beast” mode. Regulating the “beast” is futile, that’s what most religions do. What is left is to look to where our conscience points us and give up our self will yearning to live the “right ” life, in which we also discover the purpose of our existence, after all we don’t own ourselves our creator owns us, and we are created for a purpose.
As an answer to our yearning we are allowed to look into the mirror of truth where we inevitably recognize our utter sinfulness and need for redemption. (See, no one hammered it into our head, we yearned and we looked and saw)
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
“We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.[c] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[d] a slave to the law of sin.” (Romans 7:14-25)
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[c] And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1-4)
“Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.” (Romans 8:5-8)
Thanks for contributing here. Great stuff. NLP folks say everything we do is a trance. When we come out of a trance we are simply in another kind of trance.I do not believe a pedophile could find their intuition. If they could they would want to find a way to absolve themselves of what they had done. They would ask not for redemption as you say but for justice. I do not believe we are born broken and a good intuition (or beast inside) would feel the power of asking for forgiveness. It is a dimension of their core they are fulfilling. I am grateful for your feedback.
Dear Zsuzsa, dear James,
Be aware that you as Christian are conversing with James who is apparently and deeply into the gnosis. Let me quote the short definition of it by dr Stephen Jones:
“gnostiko or gnosis (inner mystic knowledge, self-knowledge)
Explained in a nutshell: God is within, waiting to be revealed. Any external influence (matter) is evil. Finding the god within comes only via your mind or feelings. There are no external checks or balances, only those which your inner spirit appropriates as you progress in your revelation. When individuality steps or tries to step beyond the natural as defined by Scripture, an abstract world emerges, generally characterised by sensualism, mysticism, gnosticism and elitism. The essence of the gnosis spirituality lies in its mystic knowledge, not only of the “deep things of God”, but also of the “deep things of Satan”. https://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net. So in my opinion this is like the same old story which started in the garden of Eden. God bless Anna
