HAS GOD THE RIGHT TO FORGIVE?

THEOSOPHIST. To the Doctrine of Atonement; I allude to that dangerous dogma in which you believe, and which teaches us that no matter how enormous our crimes against the laws of God and of man, we have but to believe in the self-sacrifice of Jesus for the salvation of mankind, and his blood will wash out every stain. It is twenty years that I preach against it, and I may now draw your attention to a paragraph from Isis Unveiled, written in 1875. This is what Christianity teaches, and what we combat: —

“God’s mercy is boundless and unfathomable. It is impossible to conceive of a human sin so damnable that the price paid in advance for the redemption of the sinner would not wipe it out if a thousandfold worse. And furthermore, it is never too late to repent. Though the offender wait until the last minute of the last hour of the last day of his mortal life, before his blanched lips utter the confession of faith, he may go to Paradise; the dying thief did it, and so may all others as vile. These are the assumptions of the Church, and of the Clergy; assumptions banged at the heads of your countrymen by England’s favourite preachers, right in the ‘light of the XIXth century,'” this most paradoxical age of all. Now to what does it lead?

ENQUIRER. Does it not make the Christian happier than the Buddhist or Brahmin?

THEOSOPHIST. No; not the educated man, at any rate, since the majority of these have long since virtually lost all belief in this cruel dogma. But it leads those who still believe in it more easily to the threshold of every conceivable crime, than any other I know of. Let me quote to you from Isis once more (vide Vol. II. pp. 542 and 543) —

“If we step outside the little circle of creed and consider the universe as a whole balanced by the exquisite adjustment of parts, how all sound logic, how the faintest glimmering sense of justice, revolts against this Vicarious Atonement! If the criminal sinned only against himself, and wronged no one but himself; if by sincere repentance he could cause the obliteration of past events, not only from the memory of man, but also from that imperishable record, which no deity — not even the Supremest of the Supreme — can cause to disappear, then this dogma might not be incomprehensible. But to maintain that one may wrong his fellow-man, kill, disturb the equilibrium of society and the natural order of things, and then — through cowardice, hope, or compulsion, it matters not — be forgiven by believing that the spilling of one blood washes out the other blood spilt — this is preposterous! Can the results of a crime be obliterated even though the crime itself should be pardoned? The effects of a cause are never limited to the boundaries of the cause, nor can the results of crime be confined to the offender and his victim. Every good as well as evil action has its effects, as palpably as the stone flung into calm water. The simile is trite, but it is the best ever conceived, so let us use it. The eddying circles are greater and swifter as the disturbing object is greater or smaller, but the smallest pebble, nay, the tiniest speck, makes its ripples. And this disturbance is not alone visible and on the surface. Below, unseen, in every direction — outward and downward — drop pushes drop until the sides and bottom are touched by the force. More, the air above the water is agitated, and this disturbance passes, as the physicists tell us, from stratum to stratum out into space forever and ever; an impulse has been given to matter, and that is never lost, can never be recalled! . . .

“So with crime, and so with its opposite. The action may be instantaneous, the effects are eternal. When, after the stone is once flung into the pond, we can recall it to the hand, roll back the ripples, obliterate the force expended, restore the etheric waves to their previous state of non-being, and wipe out every trace of the act of throwing the missile, so that Time’s record shall not show that it ever happened, then, then we may patiently hear Christians argue for the efficacy of this Atonement,”

and — cease to believe in Karmic Law. As it now stands, we call upon the whole world to decide, which of our two doctrines is the most appreciative of deific justice, and which is more reasonable, even on simple human evidence and logic.

ENQUIRER. Yet millions believe in the Christian dogma and are happy.

THEOSOPHIST. Pure sentimentalism overpowering their thinking faculties, which no true philanthropist or Altruist will ever accept. It is not even a dream of selfishness, but a nightmare of the human intellect. Look where it leads to, and tell me the name of that pagan country where crimes are more easily committed or more numerous than in Christian lands. Look at the long and ghastly annual records of crimes committed in European countries; and behold Protestant and Biblical America. There, conversions effected in prisons are more numerous than those made by public revivals and preaching. See how the ledger-balance of Christian justice (!) stands: Red-handed murderers, urged on by the demons of lust, revenge, cupidity, fanaticism, or mere brutal thirst for blood, who kill their victims, in most cases, without giving them time to repent or call on Jesus. These, perhaps, died sinful, and, of course — consistently with theological logic — met the reward of their greater or lesser offences. But the murderer, overtaken by human justice, is imprisoned, wept over by sentimentalists, prayed with and at, pronounces the charmed words of conversion, and goes to the scaffold a redeemed child of Jesus! Except for the murder, he would not have been prayed with, redeemed, pardoned. Clearly this man did well to murder, for thus he gained eternal happiness! And how about the victim, and his, or her family, relatives, dependents, social relations; has justice no recompense for them? Must they suffer in this world and the next, while he who wronged them sits beside the “holy thief” of Calvary, and is for ever blessed? On this question the clergy keep a prudent silence. (Isis Unveiled.) And now you know why Theosophists — whose fundamental belief and hope is justice for all, in Heaven as on earth, and in Karma — reject this dogma.

ENQUIRER. The ultimate destiny of man, then, is not a Heaven presided over by God, but the gradual transformation of matter into its primordial element, Spirit?

THEOSOPHIST. It is to that final goal to which all tends in nature.

ENQUIRER. Do not some of you regard this association or “fall of spirit into matter” as evil, and re-birth as a sorrow?

THEOSOPHIST. Some do, and therefore strive to shorten their period of probation on earth. It is not an unmixed evil, however, since it ensures the experience upon which we mount to knowledge and wisdom. I mean that experience which teaches that the needs of our spiritual nature can never be met by other than spiritual happiness. As long as we are in the body, we are subjected to pain, suffering and all the disappointing incidents occurring during life. Therefore, and to palliate this, we finally acquire knowledge which alone can afford us relief and hope of a better future.

Waking God Up (The Divine Dreamer Theory)

Allow me to present you with a scenario:

Let’s say you fall asleep and become lost in a dream. However,  you find that while in this dream that you cannot wake up. Since you are in this indefinite comatose state, there is one within  this dream, who is in reality an extension of you, the original dreamer, that made the unilateral decision to proclaim himself ruler of this dream and begins to usurp control of it. Now this one in control of your dream is aware that he is not the original dreamer, but wants to make sure that no one else in the dream realizes this because that will be the end of his control. So he decides to declare himself worthy of worship and to be known as the one true dreamer. In fact, he is so dedicated to this goal that he selects a group of chosen people that he made to be the fortunate ones of being the elite of the dream (also an extension of the original dreamer) with the promise of total control over all of the masses within it, as long as they remain loyal to this self-proclaimed ruler and his agenda. This faux dream ruler also constructed a set of laws that the masses of the dream (also an extension of the original dreamer) must follow or they will suffer his wrath. However, the self-proclaimed ruler of the dream and his elite minions are above the laws that were created, allowing the dream elite to covertly oppress the dream masses.

As the dream progresses, the more it seems like real life rather than just a dream. The dream elite are living the high life of wealth and power, sucking the energy and labor from the dream masses, sinking them deep into the dream and keeping them dedicated to maintaining this while more and more forgetting that this is only a dream. The dream masses become so entrenched in the dream that they themselves have forgotten that it is only a dream and start to live in fear of losing their possessions, not being successful, not being accepted by others or losing a loved one within this dream, all the while not aware that they are extensions of the original dreamer. This causes a great deal of separation pitting the dream masses against each other, which also causes the dream to fall into a lower vibration, locking the original dreamer deeper into the dream.

This scenario benefits the self-proclaimed dream ruler and the dream elite because they realized that as long as the dream masses believed themselves to be separate from each other, they can divide, conquer and rule with very little problems.

With all of this going on, a spark of the original dreamer comes into manifestation when an avatar is sent to show us how to live a better dream as an extension of the original dreamer. This spark of the original dreamer is a non-conformist. He is someone who is aware that they are in a dream and that everyone within the dream are all extensions of the original dreamer and that in order to be free of the control of the fictional dream usurper and his flunkies, remember who you really are and live in harmony with all within the dream, causing the illusory dream set up by the self-proclaimed dream ruler to dissolve and for everyone’s divine potential within the dream to be realized.

Due to this the fictional dream ruler uses its influence through his minions and gatekeepers to silence this spark by murdering him and by propaganda-like means, twists the idea of this spark of the original dreamer into something that the dream masses look to as a savior to be worshiped and believed in. With the penalty of suffering eternal torment for those who do not accept this ideology. This plan happens to work very well for the dream ruler and the dream elite by keeping the dream masses dependent on something within the dream. This keep the dream masses locked within the dream and further away from the original dreamer.

After reading this, does this story sound similar to another story that you may have heard before? If you said the Bible, you would be correct. But you may also be wondering to yourself: “Who is the original dreamer?” Then you also might be wondering: “Who is the self-proclaimed dream ruler?” Most of you would answer the first question that God is the original dreamer and Satan is the self-proclaimed dream ruler. But who is Satan as it is stated in the Bible? Well the best way to answer this question is to open the Bible and read Genesis 1 and then read Genesis 2.  Let’s look at some key excerpts within these two chapters:

Genesis 1:1-2: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void.”

Genesis 1:26-28: “And God said ‘Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.’

A few key things here. When God created the heaven and the earth, it was without form and void. Meaning that it wasn’t solid. Or to be a bit more technical, it wasn’t physical or 3-dimensional. Also mentioned is that God created man is our image. We are obviously dealing with more than one entity. So God created man as male and female. It wouldn’t be far off to think of God as male and female as well. Which would actually make a lot of sense since when a male and female mates, they create a child. We have a masculine left brain (reptilian) and a feminine right brain (mammalian) and when they are perfectly balanced, they activate the neocortex that allows for higher-order thinking. These little hints could confirm this hypothesis. Also very important to keep in mind is that when man was created as male and female, they were created as spiritual beings, not physical 3D beings. If you remember, whatever God created was not physical. At least not yet.

Also very important, God gave man created as male and female dominion over all of the earth. Dominion means rule. Meaning that while man is on the earth, we rule over it. “We” meaning ALL OF US!!! Not one person. Not a small elite group. All of man, created as male and female by God, that resides on Earth has dominion over it which also breaks down to that we are all on equal footing. No man has a right to rule over you just like you have no right to rule over anyone else. This is the true meaning behind anarchy. With this said, we should always work to help each other, never to war with each other.

So let us move on to the key excerpts in Genesis 2:

Genesis 2:2: And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

Genesis 2:4: These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens…”

Genesis 2:7: And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:15-17: And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 2:19: And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

Genesis 2:21-23: And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

So one of the things that we pick up from Genesis 2 is that God rested on the seventh day. You might be thinking “Yeah I already know that.” But do we know if he ever woke up??? It never tells us if he did or not. But for the sake of this point, let’s say that God didn’t wake up after he created everything. This leads us to another question: “WHO’S LORD GOD???”You might be thinking that it is the same entity. Well there are two problems with that answer. One, remember how I said there was no form when God created everything? Re-read Genesis 2:7. It says that LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground. Two, how could LORD God form man when man, as a male and female, was already created by God?

In the same verse, it said that man became a living soul when LORD God breathed into his nostrils. If we are still sticking to the same theory of God still being asleep and this being God’s dream, then that means that souls are are an illusion created by LORD God and have nothing to do with the true God of Genesis 1. Technically you cannot sell your soul if it isn’t real.

You will also realize that in Genesis 2:15-17 that LORD God told Adam to dress and keep the Garden of Eden. This is probably the first example of slavery. If you remember, God of Genesis 1 never said that man had to work. Remember, according to God in Genesis 1, man had dominion (rule) over all the earth. Rulers are not slaves and do not have to be commanded to do anything.  LORD God also commanded that Adam could eat of every fruit in the garden of Eden except for one. That being the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. This is when the illusion of duality is brought into the mix. A form of separation. Also introduced into the picture was the fact that if Adam did take and eat of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, that he would die. Again, keeping in mind that we are still within God’s dream, and death wasn’t even thought of while the God of Genesis 1 was still awake, this means that death is an illusion as well and is a creation of LORD God.

In Genesis 2:19 it said that LORD God formed every beast of the field and every foul of the air. But remember, the God of Genesis 1 created all things without form. So this is more proof that we are not dealing with the same entity. Also notable to state is that everything within this dream has titles and names. But in Genesis 1, God didn’t name anything or give titles to anyone. Maybe because names and titles are a form of separation? Think about it.

Finally in Genesis 2:21-23, LORD God made woman (not a man created female) by taking of Adam’s rib. But once again, God of Genesis 1 created man as male and female already.

To bring my point home, I am saying that LORD God is the fictional self-proclaimed dream ruler that I spoke of at the beginning of this post. God of Genesis 1 is the original dreamer. What we as the masses of this dream that we call life need to do is “Wake God Up”. How exactly do we do that? We remember who we are. Whether you call that God or Spirit or infinite consciousness/awareness does not matter. What does matter is you remember that WE ALL ARE THE DIVINE DREAMER AS MAN CREATED MALE OR FEMALE BY GOD. When we remain separate from each other, causing controversy with each other, going to war with each other, God remains asleep and goes deeper into sleep when we fall deeper into separation. We have to remember that we are all infinite awareness and remember that we as infinite awareness have dominion over ourselves and the earth. As we do this on a massive scale, God will begin to open his eyes, yawn and stretch, the dream ends and we are free from the illusion.

One more thing to add: Do you realize that LORD is always capitalized throughout the Bible? Did it ever jolt your curiosity as to why that is? Well, here is a hint:

The Two Forces in Action

The Two Forces in Action
by Consummate Ilias Mahatma

There are only two forces at work in all of Creation. These two Polarities have always been continuously struggling against each other. One of these forces is the force which expands Consciousness and awakens parts of the Creation to the understanding and realization of itself. This could be seen as the Light force, for it attempts to make things known, bring them into the Light, and reveal the Truth. The other force is that which attempts to shut Consciousness down and keep the parts of the Creation in ignorance of itself. This could be seen as the Dark force, which attempts to shut out the Light of knowledge and to keep us in a state resembling sleep, in which we are unconscious to Truth.


At an even simpler level, we could look at these Polarities as feelings. We really only ever experience two basic feelings. One is a good feeling and one is a bad feeling. Every other possible state of emotion is simply a different expression of these two basic feelings. If we boil it down to its essence, there are really only two possible emotions, or forces of Polarity, that we are capable of experiencing.

This inherent duality that we experience in and around ourselves is not chance or accident. It is done by the design of Creation. Creation is Oneness. Non-Duality. Think about it this way: if there is only one thing, how would that state of Oneness ever really be able to know itself unless it experienced that which it is not? There is no hot without cold, no light without dark, no good without evil, and so on. So Creation brought one of these Polarities into manifestation in order to know itself – through the process of understanding what it is not. This means that ultimately, one of the two Polarities is an illusion.

In his famous experiments with water, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that by placing water in the presence of the “good” Polarity for certain periods of time, then photographing the water molecules under high magnification, the molecules took on a beautiful, harmonious, and orderly arrangement. When he placed the very same water in the presence of the opposing Polarity, or “bad” emotion, the molecule structure broke down and became a chaotic, disorderly mess.

The first Polarity is the force that creates harmony and order, brings Light to the darkness, and expands Consciousness and awareness of Self. It is the Polarity of Love. Love is the good Polarity or emotion, which uplifts humanity in its evolution toward knowledge, wisdom, and Truth. The expansion of Consciousness through Love leads to all the positive states, or “good” feelings, which we are capable of experiencing, including harmony, peace, health, safety, and order.

The second force is the Polarity which creates chaos and destruction in its wake. This Polarity is the force of Fear. Fear is the essence of negative emotion which leads to all other expressions of negativity, or “bad” feelings, which we experience, including hatred, intolerance, insecurity, depression, and a host of others. Fear shuts down Consciousness and perpetually strives to stop the Light of Truth from reaching us and having an effect in our lives.

These two basic Polarities of the essence of all other feelings and experiences. In every moment, we are choosing the experience of either Love or Fear, through our own Free Will.

Each of these Polarities have an internal manifestation and an external manifestation. This means that each Polarity expresses itself within an individual’s Consciousness in a certain way. Upon having reached this internal manifestation, each Polarity then reaches a stage of fulfillment in the external world of the individual.

Let’s look at the internal manifestations first.

The internal manifestation of Love occurs when the essence of this Polarity has reached its full expression within an individual. This state of Consciousness could be referred to as Self-Love, or Balance. This individual has united his or her Self through Will and self-control. I refer to this expression of Love as Dominion, for the individual has obtained the state of rulership of his or her own base instincts and is operating out of a healed and balanced mode of Consciousness. A being in a state of Dominion rules the Kingdom of the self. This type of rulership is real, it is not an Illusion, for it has been created by an act of Will. Dominion is, therefore, true Self-Love.

The internal manifestation of the Polarity of Fear occurs when Fear has invaded the Consciousness of an individual. It then immediately begins to destroy that being’s capacity to recognize patterns and formulate effective responses. This state of unconsciousness is known as Confusion. Confusion is the highest manifestation of Fear that occurs within an individual being. Confusion is the exact opposite state as Dominion, for when people become confused, they are owned by their own emotional turbulence and imbalance. They are not in Dominion, for they can never rule the Kingdom of self while in a state of Confusion. As such, Confusion is the beginning of the destruction of the Self.

Now let’s examine the external manifestations of Love and Fear.

When Love, or in other words, expanded states of awareness resulting in Dominion, has achieved its fullest expression within a group of individuals, a condition results in the external world around them. This condition is the highest expression that Love attains in the external realm of the individual. This condition is Freedom. Freedom is the highest attainment of the spiritual quest. The quest for Freedom and the quest for the Divine are one and the same. Any so-called spiritual ideology that does not speak of Freedom in this manner is a false spiritual teaching. Love, Freedom, and the Divine the same thing. Anyone that claims to be a spiritual teacher and doesn’t speak to the Truth of that statement is either a charlatan or a liar, or both.

Since the Divine is the embodiment of perfect Love, it must also allow perfect Freedom. This is why there is no direct intercession on the behalf of the Divine in our world. The Will of the Divine for us is no different than our own Will for us. Whatever we wish to create is allowed by the Divine. That is perfect Freedom, and therefore, perfect Love.

The external manifestation of Fear comes into existences once Fear has created Confusion within the Consciousness of the individuals of a society. Individuals who exist in a vibration of Fear and Confusion can not recognize patterns of information around them, for they are not operating from the higher thought functions of the Neocortex of the brain. This part of the brain is shut down, and these type of individuals operate in severely imbalanced states of Consciousness dictated largely by the R-Complex of the brain. Since they are deeply in Fear and greatly confused, they revert to attempting to control event and people around themselves. And thus the descent into Chaos begins. For Control is the highest expression of Fear manifested into external reality. Control is an illusion. It is not actually real, for no one is in fact in control of anything or anyone. Anyone who believes that they are are in external control of anyone else are actually in very deep states of illusion. Since Control is based on Confusion and Fear, it leads to nothing but dark and negative emotions and experiences for all individuals who partake in this illusion.

This is simply how Natural Law works. Love (higher Consciousness) leads to Dominion (self-control), which in turn leads to Freedom, which produces more Love and more Consciousness. Fear (the shutdown of Consciousness) leads to Confusion (no pattern-recognition), which in turn leads to the desire to Control, which breeds more Fear and Confusion. Both Polarities build cycles upon themselves. One of the Polarities, Love, is clearly very good for us. The other, Fear, creates nothing but destruction in its wake.

It is impossible to create the results of one of these Polarities by adding to it the essence of the opposite Polarity. For example, it is impossible to create Freedom, which is a result of the Polarity of Love, by adding Fear and Control to any situation or set of circumstances. Conversely, a society with Control as its foundation could never result in Freedom and Love. That is just how it works, and the people of this planet will either choose to understand this simple set of principles, or they will destroy themselves through their lack of understanding and ignorance of these principles. It is really that simple.

Our present situation is that our planet is currently trapped in repeating cycles of Fear, resulting in tremendous amounts of suffering, because the people of this world have been raging against Creation by refusing to learn the core lesson that Fear is an illusion. Fear was created so that the Creation could come to know itself for what it really is – pure Love.

Though most of us may still exist within this trap of Fear, our world is in the process of waking up from this illusion. And when the Consciousness of this world does fully awaken – and it Will – that will be the day Fear dies, and with it Confusion and Control will leave this world forever.

Darkness is Not Evil!

I would like to talk about something that may or may not has crossed many people’s minds, once again due to conditioning. It is about darkness. We have been conditioned to believe that the dark is bad. When we were children, we were afraid of the dark. In Star Wars, joining the dark side was considered joining evil. But allow me to take this in another direction. Before anything existed, meaning before there were humans, animals, plants, or minerals, what was always there? DARKNESS! And since it was always there, darkness had nothing to judge, nothing to poke fun at, or nothing to war with. It has just always been there. Ironically, it was Jehovah that said “Let there be light!” Once light came into the picture, things got interesting. Now the funny thing is that we were conditioned to believe that light is good. But is it all good? Granted it is not all bad, but before light came into the picture, there was no judgment, no conflict, just stillness. Another thing to mention is that light can be manipulated into something positive or negative. Holograms can be made of light and it can deceive you to believe in something that isn’t really there. Yes light can help you see where you are going. But it can also lead you to the slaughterhouse. My point is that the dark may not be what you have believed it to be all your life and light is certainly not all good. When you close your eyes during meditation, darkness is then all around you and if your pineal gland is activated you can create your own internal light. A light that you alone can control, not a light that is being manipulated by someone else externally. So just to end this point, and to also give you something more to ponder, I’ve explained in previous posts that what we see of the universe is a small fraction of the whole thing. As a matter of fact, were you aware that over 90% of the universe is darkness? Take a look at this chart if you doubt me.

Mikey’s Informed Convict Allegory

Have any of you heard of Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave”? Chances are that unless you have taken a philosophy course, you may not be familiar with it. But I will give you the abridged version:

“There are a group of cavemen chained to a rock with a bunch of flickering shadows displayed on a cave wall that the cavemen are mesmerized by. This is the only reality that they know. This is life for them. However, one day, one of the cavemen breaks free from the chains and steps  outside the cave to see the sun shining and the birds chirping. He can also smell the fresh air and is awestruck by what he sees and feels. He is so enticed by it that he has to tell the other cavemen about his discovery. However, when he shares the good news with his fellow cavemen, they attack him.”

When I first woke up to the way of the world in 2010 and then heard this allegory, I resonated with it very deeply. Chances are so have many seekers of the truth. We discover something, we feel that it is our responsibility to inform others, and then we get attacked for it. But even though public opinion says that “we are crazy” or “we should just shut up and follow the routine”,  we know that in our hearts and minds that we could never go back to our old way of thinking about how the world works.

A great example of this allegory in play in the modern world is in  Western civilization (America specifically). Once again, here is another example of Plato’s Cave Allegory at work:

“The West (group of cavemen) receives its information from the mainstream media (flickering shadows on the cave wall). Since this is how they’ve always believed this to be the best way to be informed. they trust the information that is spewed, Then one person, or maybe even a group of people, decides to step outside of the MSM box and look for information elsewhere (stepping outside of the cave) just to find out that the world is a lot different than what was told to them by the MSM. Now making this discovery, the person/people decide to tell his fellow citizens what he has found. For that he is ridiculed and labeled a “conspiracy theorist”, a “kook”, a “looney fringe”, whatever name that the dumbed-down sheep were conditioned to use when confronted with those types of people (the attack on the maverick caveman).”

So looking at this comparison, we can see that Plato’s Allegory of the Cave fits like a puzzle piece in this scenario. Especially if you compare the flickering shadows on the cave wall to a TV set that spews propaganda day and night. But let’s now take this another step further:

“A person who has always lived in the 5-sense material reality makes a discovery that the reality that we reside in is only a mere fraction of the whole. Again, this enlightening discovery is just too great to keep to himself/herself, so this person decides to share the good news. But his good intentions is met with verbal attacks from the conditioned, dumbed down people who dogmatically believe that 5-sense reality is the only reality that exists.”

Isn’t Plato’s Allegory of the Cave great? It can be broken down and fit into scenarios that can help you understand what the world is really like compared to what you have been told that it is like.

So just for fun, I would like to introduced a 21st century version of Plato’s Cave Allegory that I have created. We will called this “The Informed Convict”, and it goes a little something like this:

“Once upon a time there were seven prisoners in one prison cell. They have been locked in this cell for three years. One day, one of the convicts walk over to the cell gate and pulls on it to discover that it is unlocked and slides open. The informed convict steps outside of the cell and starts to walk around the prison. While walking he discovers cardboard displays of prison guards with voice boxes attached to them spewing sound bytes such as “Lights out” and “Back in your cell, convict”. With delight, the informed convict goes back to the cell to inform the other prisoners of his revelation. However, when he tells them about it, some of the prisoners ignore him, some tell him to shut up, and one even threatens to beat him up. The informed convict proves that the cell gate is unlocked by sliding it open. The other prisoners grew more irritated, but continue to pay him no mind. Then the informed convict drags one of the cardboard displays of the prison guards with the voice boxes that spewed out sound bytes attached to them. This time the other prisoners start to gang up on him which results in a chase. As they were chasing the informed convict, they began to realize that they were out of the prison and that what the informed convict said about the cardboard displays of the prison guards was accurate. Upon the prisoners’ discovery, they stopped chasing the informed convict and one of the prisoners asked him: “Why didn’t you tell us before?”

So what was the point of my allegory? This is basically the mentality of the sleeping sheeple. Then one of the asleep wake up to discover that the prison is not real. The informed one took the extra step to question his reality, which lead him to discover that he and the other prisoners  had the ability to escape the prison all along. It also shows that the informed one was able to prove that the prison was a farce, yet the other prisoners still refused to believe him. This shows cognitive dissonance. Being shown proof and still refusing to believe it. This is a HUGE problem with humanity. If the proof is there, it would be wise to at least consider the evidence before outright rejecting the claim. Then it took a negative reaction from the prisoners in order for them to realize the truth, which resulted in one of the convicts asking “Why didn’t you tell us before?” This shows how oblivious humanity can be. But here is the kicker. The whole time, the prisoners could leave whenever they wanted to. Unfortunately, due to their conditioning, they really believed that they didn’t have the ability or permission to leave the prison. The same applies to humanity. Humanity is in a prison right now (mental slavery) that they can walk away from at any time. The problem is that most of humanity chooses to remain in mental slavery, even though it is in opposition with their interests. But what really shows is that they don’t even believe that they can walk away. They then shun the one that shows them the exit, like the caveman is Plato’s Cave Allegory, or the informed convict in my allegory. Perhaps we should hear out the way showers instead of rejecting them.
