Awake and Asleep: Not So Different
Could We, Too, Be Manipulated?
Let me be clear right up front: We who are awake to vaccine truths see things the sleeping masses don’t. However, there are some striking similarities in sleeper and aware communities that we overlook to our detriment. Please allow me to explain.
No one ever proclaimed: “I’m manipulated, so I think vaccines are great!” No pro-vaccine person thinks they’re manipulated. Sound familiar? It should, because that belief pervades the entire aware community as well. No one thinks they’re manipulated.
“But we’re awake,” you may protest. Fair enough. We see things the masses don’t. But if they don’t see their manipulation, how could we be sure there aren’t some things we don’t see as well? Perhaps we can’t. Thus, it may be prudent of us to consider the possibility.
What is “awake,” anyway? We speak of “awake” in black and white terms, as though one is either awake or not. Yet we also talk about some of us being “further down the rabbit hole” than others. “Awake,” then, is relative. Some are more awake than others. I’ve often said that “the deeper I dig, the messier it gets.” It seems that no matter how awake we are, there’s more to discover about what’s really going on in the world.
Psychology tells us that “awake” is relative. Each person’s experience of reality is a reflection of his or her perceptions. However, perception is a variable. It can change or shift under various conditions. In fact, it can be covertly manipulated from the outside. In other words, the way we experience reality is not necessarily always within our control. Yet everyone, sleeper and aware alike, experiences reality as though they are in complete control. Everyone experiences “seeing clearly,” “thinking logically,” and “freely choosing” to “act reasonably.” But is that necessarily always the case? Pro-vaxxers certainly don’t act reasonably—or do they? Their behavior is “obviously unreasonable” to us. But here’s the point: Their vaccine-related behavior is just as “obviously reasonable” to them as it is “obviously unreasonable” to us, or they’d act differently. Herein lies a critical distinction: Everyone—manipulated or not—experiences being in control. But if that’s true, how could the masses experience being in control while they are obviously not in control (obvious to us, anyway)?
If this seems like a contradiction—experiencing “in control” while not being in control, that contradiction may stem from a false underlying assumption: That being “out of control” necessarily requires forcing someone to act or refrain from acting against their will. If an bearded hillbilly points a shotgun at my head and says, “Say ‘I do’ right now!” when I would otherwise not say that, I’ll be married to his daughter against my will. But I’ll be fully conscious of the control that took place. Psychological manipulation doesn’t work that way. To be effective, it must control us without our being aware of it, without experiencing some outside force overpowering our conscious will. How does it do this?
First, we must understand that everyone, manipulated or not:
1) Experiences reality as though they are seeing clearly (allowing for common minor exceptions such as being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, not being fully awake first thing in the morning, etc.);
2) Experiences at all times having free will, being free to choose what to think and how to act within all reasonably available options and possibilities; and
3) Makes choices, including how to act or refrain from acting, based on what looks logical or reasonable under the circumstances.
Well, what if manipulators could control what appears “perfectly clear,” the “reasonably available options and possibilities,” or “what looks logical or reasonable” to us? And what if it could do these things covertly, leaving us unaware that these things had occurred? Or worse, what if manipulators could do this in a way that left us unable to know that these things had occurred?
For starters, this would explain why pro-vaxxers don’t see vaccine truth. If you hold pro-vax views with the experience of seeing clearly, having free will, and thinking and acting logically, what more would there be to consider? Any contrary view would appear, would be experienced as, obviously false and dangerous. Indeed, if the nature of human psychology and psychological manipulation is such that the experience of “seeing clearly,” “exercising free will,” and “thinking and acting logically” can be covertly controlled from the outside with regard to targetable issues, what part of our experience would not be at least potentially subject to control? How could manipulation be effective over the long term without controlling these things?
Take some time to let this sink in, as the implications are profound. This is what stands between us and real solutions with regard to vaccines, and all of the Grand Deceptions.
No one in the sleeper community thinks they’re manipulated; yet clearly (to us, anyway) they are. “Awake” is not a general condition; it applies only to specific facts or concepts. We, the aware, also believe—experience as “obviously true”—that we’re not manipulated. Most members of both communities will instantly reject the suggestion that they’re manipulated as patently absurd, not worthy of consideration. But while we see things the masses don’t, how could we say there couldn’t still be other things to which we have not yet awakened?
Friends, we can’t. Our reflex may be to reject the suggestion without review because the idea appears obviously illogical or even impossible. But what if that appearance is the result of manipulation? What if manipulators could implant such beliefs to hide the manipulation? Wouldn’t they have to be able to do that to keep the manipulation hidden over the long term? (Let that one sink in for a minute, too…)
This isn’t speculation. Psychology reveals that this is precisely how manipulation works. Introductions are presented in “Fear vs. Knowledge” and “Are the Masses Stupid?” so I won’t repeat those details here other than to summarize that:
1) The appearance of “logical” is a reflection of each individual’s perceptions;
2) Perceptions are rooted in subconscious emotions;
3) Those subconscious emotions can be covertly triggered from the outside to elicit predictable, and thus controllable, conscious perceptions with respect to specific target ideas or issues;
4) The manipulated perceptions lead to predictable behavior with respect to the target ideas or issues; and
5) Manipulation victims experience their own resulting behavior as being perfectly logical and coming from their own exercise of free will.
Folks, if this is true, we’re in a heep of trouble. But we need only take note of the fact that there have never been more people speaking out than the past three years, yet at the same, vaccine injuries and deaths multiplied by a factor of more than 100 compared to the prior 30 years combined. Friends, we’re clearly missing something—something huge. That something is our own manipulation. And we’re missing it because it’s been masterfully hidden from us. Psychology is the only weapon that hides its own use.
So, psychological manipulation work by forcefully suppressing our free will (and no, I’m not getting married). It targets the conditions that drive our experience of targeted facts and events, so we’ll act “logically” as the manipulators desire and control. The result? Manipulation victims unwittingly behaving against their own best interests while believing—experiencing—the exact opposite. (It’s that insidious and that powerful.) Everyone experiences “seeing clearly,” because that experience is the same for all perceptions, manipulated or not. Control perception, then, and you control a person’s behavior not by forcefully overriding their free will, but by a much more subtle and devious means: Covertly implanting a perception with respect to a particular target issue. Manipulation, then, doesn’t cause people to behave illogically. We all behave logically. Manipulators count on that. Manipulation causes us to see as “logical” perceptions that lead to the behavior they want. With us, that means doing anything and everything except what could potentially pose a real risk or threat to them. But of course, we only engage in activities that could pose a risk or threat to them—except we don’t. But we experience that we do. That’s the power of manipulation. That’s why decades of ever-greater activism work have always been met, overall, with an accelerating pharma/elite agenda.
What we see, what information our conscious intellects can reach or process, depends on the boundaries of our perceptions. But the experience of “seeing clearly” and “logically” does not. Everyone sees “clearly,” everyone thinks and act “logically,” relative to their own perception boundaries, regardless of how different any two given people’s perception boundaries may be with respect to any given matter. Pro- and anti-vaxxers each see logically; each appears illogical to the other; each one’s “logic” is in perfect correlation with their particular perceptions; each has very different perceptions on the topic of vaccines. One is manipulated, the other based on more complete information. So, one is superior to the other. But the underlying psychology is the same for both.
The masses aren’t lazy, stupid, or lacking critical thinking skills; they literally can’t hear us. Vaccine truth lies outside of the reach of their (manipulated) perceptions. It doesn’t matter how smart anyone is. Medical doctors and high school dropouts alike get manipulated. But this doesn’t mean they can’t ever hear us, it just means that waking them up requires more than information alone; it requires addressing the psychological barriers, a psychological process. This explains why decades of ever-greater activism work have always been accompanied by an accelerating pharma agenda. We’re not doing anything wrong, we’re just missing a critical part, implanted subconscious emotional barriers that information alone can’t penetrate.
Manipulation victims have free will, but manipulation invisibly restricts the range of free will choices. Specific behaviors aren’t controlled; the behavior control is categorically. For example, the manipulated masses reflexively reject vaccine truth. But the means of rejection varies widely. Some people ignore us and our information; others ridicule us; some verbally attack us; some may even physically assault us in rare instances. But these are all just different forms rejection that accomplish the pharma goal: Hide truth. The wide range of rejection behaviors also masks the fact that the myriad forms of rejection are all from the same manipulation. If all forms of rejection were the same, the control would be more obvious.
So, we can’t see our own manipulation, as it’s driven from our subconscious. Then how can we know if we’re manipulated?
We can’t. Therein lies the crux of the matter. It’s why psychological manipulation is so powerful and effective—that along with the fact that the resulting behavior appears to the victim to come from a logical, free will choice. You can only see your own manipulation retrospectively, looking back on it after you’re free from it, just like we usually don’t know we were dreaming until after we awaken from the dream. But with careful observation, we can spot indirect evidence of our manipulation. With the aware community, that might begin with a simple overview: “We do ever greater activism work, yet pharma keeps going faster…” Or recognizing that the past three years’ “greater than ever speaking out” was accompanied by an astronomically contradictory increase in vaccine deaths and disabilities. We’re either incompetent or missing something. And we are not incompetent—we have amazing people in our movement. That leaves only one other possibility.
So, how do we get free from something we can’t even be sure is there in the first place? Good news: Blind faith isn’t required. All that’s needed is an open mind and the willingness to explore the possibility. I say “don’t take my word for it,” but I don’t want anyone to take my word for it, because that would miss a critical point: Everyone just has to see for themselves. That’s what true awakening is and what true awakening requires. New information accompanies awakening, but at its core, awakening is a non-intellectual psychological process. It requires a shift in the subconscious emotions that govern conscious level perception—”undoing” what manipulators have corrupted on that level to control our conscious level perceptions. With respect to waking to the solution, exploring the possibility over time leads to peeling off layers of cognitive dissonance you didn’t know were there. That leads to greater clarity about both the problem and solutions, which leads to new action. In practical terms, something’s holding back all of our activism work. When we address that, all of our activism work will be freed up. Then, all of it—together—can finally break free. The importance of this can’t be overstated. This isn’t about adding yet another fix to the mix. It’s about freeing up the entire movement.
The paid subscription component of this Vaccine Rights substack platform ($5/month, the lowest rate substack allows) uses weekly articles to provide a deeper look into manipulation psychology, and to examine current events to reveal aware community cognitive dissonance. But with my help or not, please explore this possibility—that we, too are manipulated—as this is the fundamental barrier between us and our movement’s goals.
