The stimulus-response empire: cracking the egg

Here are several preliminary notes (among many) I made during the development of my collection, The Matrix Revealed. They strike at the heart of mass conditioning/programming:

“Training humans to respond uniformly to stimuli is the ‘new science.’ This effort may be masked behind techno-speak, but it is there. Give this attempt at programming enough time, and it will fail. Understanding why opens up a radically different reality…”

“In a limited sense, you are a person living in the early years of the 21st century. In a much larger sense, though, you’re equipped with inner resources that outstrip any cultural tradition. You’re not your history or history in general. The entire thrust of conventional psychology is to re-embed you in your past. Supposedly, this will enable your liberation—but actually liberation is a choice: you’re free to choose to be free. And if you don’t make that choice, no amount of immersion in the past is going to produce satisfaction. It will only relocate the same theater called your life from 53rd St. to 43rd St…”

“A popular piece of received wisdom: ‘everything is connected to everything.’ This is supposed to carry very positive connotations, but it actually describes how mass reality is built and the intention behind it. Each piece of the matrix is hooked up to every other part. These parts all ‘confirm the truth of the whole.’ Constructing such a closed system that is internally consistent is like building a hospital where the treatments for patients ensure they will never leave—except in a box.”

“There are different levels of perception. For example, a person can be reacting automatically to stimuli. Therefore, he believes what he is seeing is the totality of what he can see. On the other hand, if he consciously invents the future he desires, he’ll see an entirely different set of phenomena.”

“Seeing isn’t separate from building. You walk into an empty garbage-strewn lot and look around. You register what’s there. But if you begin building a house on the lot, you see a whole host of different items. And that isn’t the end of it. The quality of your perception undergoes a radical shift if you’re building the house. What you see is infused with a different spirit and energy. Now consider this: suppose you’re told not to build a house there. Suppose you’re told you need to see the empty lot as a symbol of everything that’s wrong with the surrounding community. Where does that leave you? If you accept this premise, you’re in the stimulus-response program—and no house will be created.”

“Under hypnosis, a patient will respond to questions the therapist asks. Here’s the crux: the therapist can use questions to call up vastly different realities, and the patient will be prompted to describe and tell stories about all these realities. If the therapist only asks for one reality, that’s what the patient will give him—and to an outside observer, it will seem as if the patient is, in fact, explaining his one and only reality. That is an illusion. The patient has the capacity to envision and invent many realities. Matrix is, in life, everything that goes into convincing a person that he ‘has one reality’ and has no reason to look for, envision, and invent others.”

“The true basis of an android is: he tries to solve the problems with which he’s presented. Eventually, he sees problems that need solving everywhere. That’s all he sees. That is his basic program. Without it, he wouldn’t know what to do. If you try to tell him he is operating according to this program, he’ll say, ‘I don’t have time to listen, I’m too busy solving a problem.’”

“An untrained human can naturally deal with multi-dimensional realities. He can shift from one to another smoothly. After the usual indoctrinations, he can’t. He can’t, because he doesn’t see multiple dimensions. He stumbles over them in the dark. He’s lost one basic thing: his imagination.”

“The brilliant hypnotherapist, Jack True, once told me: ‘Under hypnosis, I can ask a patient to describe what’s outside this universe, and he’ll do it. People say, “He’s just imagining it.” I don’t care about that. In the way I do the exercise, the patient emerges with a greater sense of his own power. That’s what I care about. This isn’t some self-inflated manic episode, either. His sense of power becomes integrated in his life. His life changes for the better.”

    Cracking the egg is easy,
    But, making the omelet is more difficult.
