…in case you missed my intro, here’s a precised recap:
there’s alot of misinformation, disinformation and saturation of useless information in the world we live in. My purpose with the #WTFU series is to unveil that which is unseen, hidden, spoken only under the breath, ignored or straight up accepted – from toxins to control- pulling back the proverbial curtain that keeps the masses asleep.
2012 and the massive energy shift therein saw a quickening that empowered so many more people to begin the awakening process, so much truth unveiled ( and often times quickly veiled over again by mainstream media or discredited by those whom want to keep the masses under their programmed spell. The reality however is that humans, blessed, wonderful, amazing creatures that we are- are meant to evolve. Our destiny is mapped out in the cosmos before we are born and henceforth long after we leave this earthly incarnation ) We certainly aren’t meant to live superficial lives in fearsome apprehension to dive into the deep end of our consciousness… resting in oblivion on material gains, striving for empty existence shrouded by shit that makes no difference.
You can strive for money and you can buy yourself a temporary belief that standing on your stacks will get you higher up any ladder to the top, but those who follow a conscious path of course know that ascension can’t be charged on no platinum visa.
in reality there are thousands of tiny truths that bring happy daily a-ha moments, and there are massive truths that are often indigestible given what we are, in essence, ‘programmed’ to believe. The point in short is, that this life in this time, is a miraculous, exciting and powerful opportunity… There are more of us than ever before- answering the call to WTFU and making it their dharma to assist others in the journey to awaken.
And to all of you, you know who you are- bless your journey. Please continue. To new discoverers on the path to understanding, Please remember the importance of balance in the quest to consciousness- its power is invaluable to you as you wake up out of complacency for opening the eyes for the first time can be blinding without the shade of balance. Balance is the secret of universal harmony. balance is key. This may be an obvious statement- especially relevant in modern life where its a struggle to survive and pull in the revenue you need to cover your nut- no matter how big or small your nuts are, balance is the only thing that will provide depth and meaning, enrich a life spent working.
At the centre of every system of order, every measure of success in relationships, everything in the natural world requires a centrepoint built on fortitude and wise and economical distribution. Ying, Yang, Creation, Destruction, Light, Dark, Hot + Cold = warm… and all life thrives in warmth- from bacteria to humanity- humans thrive when they meet warmth… allow it to flourish in their lives. The concept of balance can apply to personal life vs. work in the world, to finding your core on the yoga mat and mastering that arm balance, to learning the lesson of moderation when indulging in the deliciousness of life. Food, Substances, Technology, Sex…Too much makes you sick, too little and you starve. It’s that point where you meet a sense of satisfaction where your awareness ought spark pause on consumption. this particular lesson of balance applies to those on the conscious path …for in knowing how much truth you can handle, when seeking out what’s behind and underneath the surface-finding balance is vital.
And all said thus far- your best bet is to get educated in the art of avoidance. And further to that- grant yourself the gift of keen sight as not to miss the opportunities appearing every day…
‘Enemy’- i choose that word carefully and for emphasis – knowing that the truth is – often our only real enemies are ourselves as we are by nature, equipped with the capacity to be unconditionally victorious against any enemy… ) Every day the ‘enemy’ reveals itself to those who open their eyes to see the revealing. Those who are at a certain point in their awakening will realize that once you’ve cracked open the box to allow the light to flood in- the dark is illuminated, thus the enemy – has no place to hide.
Part two in our ten truths series starts here:
teth•er ~ the utmost length to which one can go in action; the utmost extent or limit of ability or resources.
#2- #TETHERtruth: we are willingly yet unwittingly, being controlled.
The distorted version of reality that we are living in is a programmed falsity that is oppressing us often without our direct knowledge.
This truth is one that is a bit slippery- i have never been the kind of writer who edits themselves or whom even thinks of what to say before the words come out- every thing i write is almost always a stream of consciousness seeming channeled from elsewhere- this however will need to be the exception. I will be avoiding use of particular words, names and terms particularly throughout the paragraphs on media and mind control for protection of what it is i am seeking to do with this blog at an overall.
Having said that- i will offer the basis for this tethering truth- i make no proclamations one way or another, no devotion to any particular path and certainly no advocacy for any anti- anything.. I am a believer in truth art and love as a means to my own end, that end- is always peace… so i put it to you as a human of this earth to dig and to seek to find your own path to this truth.
I will not speak directly, nor will i divulge any name, label or entity responsible for this mass vy for control- but off the top- just know, it is a deeply intricate matrix of interconnected efforts to repress what you, me, we… already know; to confuse and divert you from what is encoded in your DNA as a human. What we have been put on this earth to do, is in part – to reignite the wisdom within, to power forth through endless obstacles, and in this battle for our lives we need armor, we need an arsenal, the greatest weapon that an individual can have- is a conscious understanding of its opponent in the ever-changing war for one’s freedom.
I bow – in lakesh to the others who are out there sharing this wisdom and empowerment, striving to unleash humanity from the grips of toxic truths and repressive wills of ‘others’ whom come not from a place of light and love but from a darkness with calculated aim.
Prior to deep diving into this particular truth it serves to be said that there are infact countless ways by which we are controlled, influenced and dominated and tethered on a daily basis, from our food to our news to our health- it’s an interconnected web of motive, a massive onion that once peeled will continue to reveal itself layer upon layer. Control is such a widespread phenomenon that it literally can be traced to nearly every aspect of human life. Of course this is nothing new, control itself is a force of power that has been sought after since the dawn of humanity and its evolution has only seen it proliferate further and further – like urban sprawl into the far reaching edges of the landscape of our lives. Safe to say that what ought be obvious in terms of control has been obviously omitted from this installment of #WTFU– those certain truths that are engrained into us; such as the reality that religion and government seek to control us through systems of belief, they do so quite effectively taxing us at almost every level of life from economic to spiritual. The culture we live in, in the western world is one cultivated upon desire and greed- power hungry, money hungry and just plain hungry hoardes make up our city-scapes, and for the most part we exist in manifested boxes with small portions of liberty over our lives. We exist in many cases primarily to fuel the agendas of the elite and those who we unwittingly give our power to regularly. We hand over freedom as simply as if it were a paid transaction – which in many ways- it is. The economy of the western world has been built around the concept of currencies-Monetary, Belief and Power currencies- and most, spend the entirety of their lives toiling just to amass a substantial amount of any of those three.
Within that never-ending toil to acquire currency you never really own nor control- that is the reality of control…My belief has always been that in this life the only things we do control are our actions and our reactions- and as such i believe that whomever is behind the neverending vy to control you is also keenly aware of this and as such, they cultivate ways in which to remotely access both action and reaction- whether it’s through manipulation of perception and cultivation of false belief… aka: the influencing one’s emotions to motivate one to a motive. The programming itself is to inspire reaction and consequent action…The only liberties you truly own. The truth is the choice is yours, to educate yourself in the art of avoidance, to open your eyes to what’s true, to act with kindness over anger, to work to manifest the qualities within that will protect you from becoming a slave to your own (re)actions.
connecting TOXINtruth with TETHERtruth:
WTFU vol.1 #toxintruth made clear the harsh reality of our systematic poisoning through air, water, food, people and pretty much everything around us- and while i offered a list of the top toxic offenders – the real truth is that list keeps growing moment to moment. While the 10 truths are stand-alone realities, they, much like all else in existence are inextricably connected… The toxins that suppress us are tools – tools to meet agendas- both economical otherwise, all nevertheless dominating… To illustrate this connection- take Fluoride. The very first mention in my array of top toxins was Fluoride, Its presence as a poison does not necessarily upstage its presence as a control mechanism. Indeed, Fluoride is a blinding control mechanism;
one of the most viable and easily executable forms of control alive today- aside from imprisonment. ( although it could be argued most definitely as a prison in its own right )
Since WW2 when the leader of the Third Reich hatched a dastardly plan to seize dominance on a massive level- Fluoride has been a key tool.
The following is an excerpt from a letter received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research from Mr. Charles Perkins, a chemist: ( 1. )
” … In the 1930`s, Hitler and the German Nazi`s envisioned a world to be dominated and controlled by a Nazi philosophy of pan-Germanism. The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass-control which was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population in whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in women, and so on. In this scheme of mass-control, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place. …
Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual`s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him.
The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty.
I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine–any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.”
1. Charles Perkins – excerpt from a letter received by the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, ( Milwaukee Wisconsin, October 2, 1954 )
Now some may look at the above and think- that sounds like the mad ramblings of a chemist who may have ingested too many fumes from his beaker. It’s incredibly difficult to believe that in the year 2014, In the great western world whom prides itself continent-wide on liberty, justice and remaining strong and free- that we could be subject to the plots of a dictator set in motion decades ago… And indeed it is a fearsome and tough to swallow truth- But if you look at the evidence posed in toxintruth – and the horrific affects that result from fluoridization of our human bodies, this 70 year old missive- begins to have a strange resonance of accuracy.
There are other accounts of this ‘mass medication’ plan throughout history that well-prove its truth. Here is another brief excerpt from Einstein`s nephew, Dr. E.H. Bronner (a chemist who had also been a prisoner of war during WWII) ( 2. )
“There is a sinister network of subversive agents, Godless ‘intellectual’ parasites, working in our country today whose ramifications grow more extensive, more successful and more alarming each new year and whose true objective is to demoralize, paralyze and destroy our great Republic–from within if they can, according to their plan–for their own possession.
Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration…As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Non-organic sodium fluoride used in fluoridating water is instant poison to the body and fully water soluble.The body refuses to assimilate it.”
2. Dr. E.H. Bronner – letter printed in the Catholic Mirror ( Springfield, MA January 1952 )
Is there really more to say on the subject? Do you really still believe that fluoride is ‘good for the health’ because it’s recommended by Dentists? Or for that matter, the millions who consume it in the form of ‘Prozac’ – do you truly feel that your free will is a fair exchange for a dulled and numbed state of reality – where you may or may not feel ‘less- depressed’ that before? The choice we are making really, is between liberty and oppression. It may seem a drastic statement at first glance, but realistically- given the evidence there is no grey area, it’s a black and white debate.
A chemical that quite effectively shuts of our pineal gland- our ability to awaken and clearly see the truth, that causes crippling painful death in many of its victims, leaving others docile and ready for domination is quite simply not one you want in your body. period.
please click below to watch a fellow bringer of truth speaking in detail on the pineal gland and sacred geometry among other important revelations including ‘looking glass’ symbolism, syrians and other key truths of which i will not tag herein…
. In vol#1 I offered tips for de-fluoridizing the pineal gland and removing this toxin from the body- which in the warrior’s fight to be free, is elemental. it begins of course with the cleansing yes , but moreso knowing what it is that we need to cleanse, what we seek release from, the understanding that we are even tethered in the first place must be challenged and in that challenge- we reveal the endless ways by which this concept expresses itself…reclaiming control begins with the understanding of that which binds and tethers us to a fast-declining state of freedom to thrive. There are a vast array of tools by which we are tethered- from big ideas to seeming small beliefs, from drugs to music to the morning news, it’s the ultimate understanding of perceptions and triggers that will unleash us from the grasp.
#mechanics of mindcontrol: media parasites, MAOI, SSRI, and the robbery of liberty
via Wikipedia: Mind control (also known as brainwashing, coercive persuasion, thought control, or thought reform) is an indoctrination process which results in “an impairment of autonomy, an inability to think independently, and a disruption of beliefs and affiliations. In this context, brainwashing refers to the involuntary reeducation of basic beliefs and values” The term has been applied to any tactic, psychological or otherwise, which can be seen as subverting an individual’s sense of control over their own thinking, behavior, emotions or decision making.
The mechanics of mind control are so precise, so stealth, so smartly-engineered it’s barely possible to notice unless your eyes are open…The orchestrated strategic systems of control are run so deep and so wide there have been novels written on the topic ( read the rise of the fourth reich by Jim Marrs —>
– the orchestration of subliminal domination is happening everywhere you look, in every song you dance to, in every ‘Idol’ episode you watch, in every hour you spend fucking around on your smartphone, in every app you purchase in every page of every glossy-marketing-driven magazine lining the checkouts of every shopper marketing strategy implemented in every grocery store continent wide. To most the list i just wrote ( apps, idol, smartphones, pop music, consumerism… ) represents important elements of a culture that defines their lives… but that culture is cultivated to control…
Imagine if you will you are laying in a field on a summer’s day… looking down you notice an ant climbing a blade of grass and falling down over and over, only to climb back up again… Is there a purpose to this act? you wonder, is there rhyme or reason to this repetitive action?… is there meaningful explanation to why the ant is doing this- or is the action a fluke?… indeed it is a fluke- a lancet fluke. A lancet fluke is a parasite that resides in the stomachs of cows and sheep and in the brains of ants.
The belief that parasites rule the world has long been a notion held in veracity – and as such i use this notion to begin to draw a metaphor- the lancet fluke is a microscopic parasite that throughout its lifecycle requires different hosts in order to fulfill its destiny- it passes from snail to ant to cow rather effortlessly by invading the body of its host, and ultimately commandeering its mind in order to fulfill its ultimate dharma. Once the lancet fluke has infiltrated the ant, it infects the brain of the ant- and morphs its regular patterns of behaviour in such a way that it literally begins to control its mind. Instead of seeking comfort in the ant hole with the other ants, the lancet-inflected ant goes rogue and traverses its way up a tall blade of grass and therein waits patiently to be eaten by a cow. It climbs the blade of grass over and over and over until it succeeds in staying on top- where it is successfully able to kamakazee itself into the ultimate destination- the belly of a cow or sheep. The lancet fluke isn’t the topic of interest here but what the lancet represents is the seeming meaningless, mindless repetitive action of a living thing; once that organism has been ‘infected’ by something else.
This infection applies to ‘tether-truth’ – as it is a perfect representation of what happens to people once they have been infected or infiltrated or compelled by an idea. The idea itself thus becomes similar to a parasite. This concept itself however being expressed as microscopic + parasite sized- is in reality, quite vast. From the seed of an idea fluorishes transformation. It ought to be noted though- that this concept of ‘infection’ is not something that i mean to articulate as solely negative. We have all experienced at one time or another the capacity a seeming foreign entity or idea has to transform, whether it’s the big political statements such as that of Malcom X or the dogmatic expressions written in the holy bible which are followed by millions world-wide, Whether it is a simple mantra or affirmation spoken each morning in the mirror that leads to manifesting an intention, or the clean-toxin free diet that cleanses the body and thus transforms its host… Indeed the metaphor can be traced back to life itself- the notion of conception: the meeting of a man’s sperm with that of its counterpoint egg, the infiltration of the womb by a foreign body results in a miraculous metamorphosis, giving birth to new life… Not all transformation by that of idea or belief or infectious substance leads to ultimate demise. In truth it is this very notion- that drives me to create this series, that compels my hands to type the words, that pushes me to hit publish… the notion that the seed of a truth-based perception has the capacity to infect and to grow and to flourish into something that transforms life for the better is the ultimate rationale for the existence of these words you are reading; and it is the truth behind much of what we consume, what we watch, what we read, what we buy and what soundtracks our days as we move through our lives like ants marching to ultimate fate.
The lancet fluke concept, has many expressions- as many as there are people on earth. And my goal in this volume of #WTFU is to reveal the true nature of some.
Tethering Tools and Triggers:
SSRI’s, SNRI’s. MAOI’s, TCA’s,
When i was about 15 years old, just a few years after my first awakening experience- i read a book called ‘Brave New World’ – a classic by all rights, this Aldous Huxley Dystopian Novel takes place 600 years into the future wherein all the world is unified under a ‘One World Government’ A totalitarian society that is achieved via test tube babies, hypnotism, and psychological programming… which inevitably results in a rigid, pre-ordained caste system; intelligent humans in the highest positions and slave-like beings who are genetically programmed to do menial subordinate labour; wherein everyone belongs to everyone else in a system of forced-promiscuity that is literally brainwashed into people at birth. This world divided into alphas, betas, gammas, deltas and epsilons- exists entirely in a drug-induced, brainwashed state of false-happiness- by a drug called Soma.
When i was just a teenager reading this book was a thrilling and entirely fascinating fictional experience. I borrowed the book from the public library in the small town in which i lived – and i kept it for well over its due date, for anyone that’s read this piece of literature knows it’s a terrifying world of intricacy that now as an adult- rings all too true. For the last few years as the energy of the universe has forced a quickening i began to have utterly un-instigated flashbacks of this book. The experience of reading it seemed to be something that engraved itself into my memory and even 15+ years later my recollection of this world created where all appear to be contented on the surface, every whim available to be satisfied- pleasure and excess at fingertips, is haunting. The undercurrent of course was that this so-called paradaisical stability was achieved only through the sacrifice of liberty and personal freedom. And as the proverbial onion peels further and further and the truths are ever-revealed- the similarities are all too coincidental when viewed through a conscious-lens.
Soma, In the novel “Brave New World” was a legal drug made abundantly available by the one-world government, ( ultimately to mask the fact that the ‘utopian dream’ was really a dystopian nightmare) its users encouraged to pop soma at any sign of discomfort or unhappiness ..”one cubic centimetre cures ten gloomy sentiments” ( 3. ) its beneficial side effects included those under the soma-coma being a vacant, docile, distracted, dis-engaged populus,
“half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon…” (4. )

4. Aldous Huxley, Brave New World 1932, United Kingdom: Chatto & Windus – chapter 3. 239
In Huxley’s opus – the drug itself became a primary control mechanism as the dystopian society began to unravel and the protagonist began to see the truth, he tossed his soma from a tall window to reclaim his liberation.Drawing terrifying similarities to the modern day anti-depressants that mute the masses. The staggering statistics do not lie- in the last two decades anti-depressant use is up 400% ( 5. ) and an estimated 24 million Americans are now on some daily-form of Anti-depressant or another. Canada it seems just made a leap to the top of the list with the highest amount of users per-capita of various SSRI’s ( 42 million prescriptions were filled @ Pharmacies in 2012) ( 6. )

6. Psychiatrist warns against trying to cure ordinary sadness as Canadians among top users of Antidepressants: National Post, Ottawa 01.19.2014
Having a little experience with anti-depressants and their effects myself i find these numbers terrifying… when i was in my late teens i had a case of insomnia after i moved home from my California paradise, left my family and was in an intense growth phase; instead of suggesting some yoga or talk therapy i was prescribed a series of 7 or 8 different drugs which i would have filled at the pharmacy, take for two days and discontinue for fear i was losing my mind. The longest i lasted on any of the drugs was ‘wellbutrin’ i think, which i successfully took for a period of two weeks. Last year while digging through my hope chest filled with notebooks and journals i came across some writing from that period in my life, which was riddled with darkness and a profound state of numbed out detachment from myself. Finally i put my foot down with the Dr. who was using me as her guinea pig- and after gaining around 40 pounds and losing pieces of my mind i set out to find my own therapeutic answers… Ultimately all i remember from that period of about 9 months was this wall that went up this wall between myself and the rest of the world, this wall that separated me even from my love who i slept with each night, this wall that forced me into feeling that i was an impotent, incapable being – with no connection to the universe.
“Soma had raised a quite impenetrable wall between the actual universe and their minds.” – Brave New World.
The damage done to countless people by this tethering tool is a multi-leveled masterpiece executed with ease. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry ( 7. ) discusses Perhaps the best known psychological side effect of SSRIs is “amotivational syndrome”, (8. ) with symptoms clinically similar to those of frontal lobe brain damage, This condition is characterized by apathy, dis-inhibited behavior, de-motivation and a personality change similar to the effects of lobotomy. ( interesting that Charles Perkins letter above on fluoride said something similar ) When Yale University’s Department of Psychiatry analyzed the admissions to their hospital’s psychiatric unit, ( 9. ) they found that 8.1% of the patients were “found to have been admitted owing to antidepressant mania or psychosis” Other psychological effects include: insomnia, agitation, anxiety, nervousness, restlessness, mania, dysphoria, poor concentration, low libido and appetite, diminished impulse control among other well documented side effects. There are also several reports that associate these drugs with parkinsons disease and akathisia ( severe inner restlessness) If that’s not enough there are also reports that those who suffer from akathisia are also prone to aggression and suicide. After what could only be thousands of suicides the FDA finally let it slip that a the risk of suicide for children receiving SSRIs can be up to three times higher than placebo, in Adults that number goes up to 4. 10.
7. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 1, Robert E. Hales, Stuart C. Yudofsky, American Psychiatric Pub., 2003
8. The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 1, Robert E. Hales, Stuart C. Yudofsky, American Psychiatric Pub., 2003
If you are lucky enough to be outside the ratio at risk for suicide, Antidepressants produce long-term, irreversible chemical & structural changes to your brain and body.
The administration of Prozac and Paxil raises cortisol levels ( which is the chemical responsible for stress – elevated levels can cause weight gain, immune issues, depression etc. ) In addition to this a recent study reported by Natural News, (11. ) has shown that taking anti-depressants during pregnancy doubles your chances of giving birth to an Autistic Child. A large Swedish study published in the British Medical Journal included more than 1,600 autistic children whose mothers took any kind of antidepressant during their pregnancy. The results showed an increased incidence of autism in the antidepressant group compared to a control group. A second study published in 2011 showed a 2-fold increased risk of autism if mothers took antidepressants in the year before delivery and a 3-fold increased risk with antidepressant use in the first trimester of pregnancy. These results were compared to mothers with a known history of mental illness, but without use of antidepressants and their children did not show an increased risk of autism.”
11. Do antidepressants in pregnancy cause autism? -Randall Neustaedter OMD, May.10.2013
Yet another study has suggested that exposure to SSRI’s can arrest the very development of neurons in the brain; which when given to developing brains of children, coupled with the onslought of toxins they are up against from their very conception, doesn’t give us much hope for our future as free people.
It’s not difficult to conclude why these numbers are so high, when in Canada alone the anti-depressant sales account for upwards of $1.8 billion per year. ( yes big pharma’s profit margins are the becoming the highest of any industry ) The bulk of prescriptions are written by general practitioners or ‘family doctors’ with little to no experience in diagnosing mental illness, but a great deal of license when it comes to potentially altering someone’s existence permanently. The kick-backs from big-pharma are no secret, even hollywood revealed them in a film called ‘Love and Other Drugs’ – trips to Hawaii, cash rewards, neverending incentives to continue to dole out the drugs- and its really not all their fault when it comes down to the truth, anti-depressants are celebrated, they have become it seems, just like soma, as a cure-all for nearly every ill emotion. According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, psychiatry’s official guidebook of mental sickness, people can meet the criteria for major depressive disorder if they experience two weeks’ worth of a depressed mood most of the day, loss of interest, changes in appetite, reduced energy and problems sleeping ( consider the last time you went through a break-up or lost your job or simply experienced the often negative emotions that express themselves in normal-daily life, these emotions do not signify illness but moreso the spirit’s need to evolve, to transcend the manifested feelings caused by humanity’s oppressed destiny to awaken )
Instead of meeting the challenges of life, the challenges of evolution, the challenge of ‘waking-up’ with bold tenacity, we are quick to hit the help button and the result is repressing our spirits. The shocking number of children and teenagers whom are regularly put on drugs is tragic degradation to the future of humanity; when the reality is that growing up is tough, adolescence is tough, kids behaviour regularly mimics the so-called basis for diagnosis, but as easily as that behaviour could be a chemical-imbalance it could be a hormonal-imbalance ( please read the first volume of this series wherein i discuss ‘hormones gone haywire’ …hormones cause all manner of seeming mentally ill’ behaviour- if you do not believe this statement, talk to a pregnant woman. The medicating of un-happiness is a tool. It tethers us to our unhappiness, it tethers us to our negative emotions, it tethers us to the belief that there is something ‘wrong’ with feeling anxious or sad or with the expression of dis-satisfaction, when the ultimate truth that is overlooked is that happiness is our default state- and that default state is altered by an ever-evolving plethora of toxins and factors that herein i strive to reveal- happiness is an expectation that people put upon themselves because of the cultivated culture of instant gratification yields.
Over-diagnosis is an epidemic that is progressing at an alarming rate and given the ultimate outcome of these drugs- it’s society’s biggest enemy. At the same time, it is the responsibility of each and every person to question, question the veracity of the drug ads on TV, question the quick diagnosis of a Dr. getting kickbacks, question your emotions, question why they exist, what is it they are striving to teach you; as with every feeling we have that is manifested from our brains there is a lesson to be learned that we often ignore. The most beautiful sentiment i’ve heard was shared with me by a Spanish Yogi, who i fell in love with in Tulum- as i sat next to him on a bed the day before i was to leave, the tears streaming down my face, he said that sadness was so beautiful, as beautiful as being happy for in ultimate understanding they are the same. The yin side of sad and the yang side of happy create the balance that we need to sustain.

” more than 10,000 americans in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s were involved in programs at universities in Canada that allegedly systematically drugged people as a form of long-term programming.”
Please see Alex Jones @infowars for a plethora of information on mind control, mass programming, media propoganda, politics, medical industry evils, economics, and most every other truth that mainstream media infotainment ‘neglects’…
Realistically when it comes to control and mind control- the use of pharma and other drugs extends far beyond simple SSRI’s etc. the systematic drugging of human beings as part of programming was and continues to be a reality in North America. Whether its through chemicals in your food, in your drinking water, in your ‘harmless’ Western Medicine, in your flu shots, in the vaccines your thoughtlessly and routinely administer your children- there is an all out war happening for your mind, your body and your spirit.
There are under-cover operations in use throughout the world as a means to rewire and control people for specific motives and to serve specific purposes. There are currently individuals in the media spotlight who are victims of this programming which involves acts beyond moral-minded comprehension. There are those who you watch regularly who upon cue, ( a specific hand gesture or word ) can be snapped into or out of a particular state of mind- similar to a robot or machine- thus unwittingly forced to carry out the plans of their oppressors. There is not much else i wish to communicate on this subject for the reasons stated in my disclaimer, however there is ample information out there for those who wish to take their understanding on the role of mind control programming, pharmaceuticals, drugs etc. in modern mainstream media – further, unraveling its deliberate use in tethering the masses.
Those on the conscious path are no doubt, to some degree, aware of the strategic, methodical orchestrated plan to dominate our free will, beliefs, and our actions- trapped in a cycle of consumerism, escapism via celebrity worship and an endless string of programming of every flavour.
Again- this particular aspect of tethering is one that is so incredibly vast, so deep and so wide that diving into it runs the risk of inadvertant drowning. The understanding that every aspect of our senses is being categorically assailed through all that we consume – is a frightening truth that can overwhelm and bombard even as it is meant to heal.
at present 5 major corporations control all media in the US- in Canada we are not much better. That 5 is ever shrinking with continuous acquisition of startups and countless other media business of every kind from tv station to apps and the continuous strive to push out the little guys and blanket the masses with strategic image, message and means to its own end.
the medium is the message: television, music, mayhem:
Is a term i have come to use when referring to the degradation of our social systems, communication structures and the individual ability to engage in healthy interpersonal communication, the millenials coming up just under me seem to be of an entirely different species and breed altogether as the gen X&Y that defined those like me, who came up in the age where call waiting was the newest innovation and we barely touched a computer until the age of 18 ( that’s true, my first computer was an IBM my parents bought when i was in my senior year of high school ) The new generations are raised entirely on technology, and nearly come fresh out of the womb with the ability to text. No longer is cursive handwriting or literary and grammatical standard upheld in education and prose has given way to acronyms. A generation that relies on emoticons to convey their feelings to one another. Behind a screen, whatever the size- seeking connection in so many social media outlets, defining who they are through carefully crafted profiles projecting what it is they wish to be vs. striving to be who they are. Once a friend described the rise of social media as a ” self absorbed ticker tape of egotistical delusion” i laughed as this was in the early days of facebook and twitter feeds and while both coming from a communications background we saw the rise of this movement as something groundbreaking for marketing yet devastating for authentic communication. Selfies are the new skill teenage girls and boys strive to master, neverending duck-faces with bathroom backdrops, amidst the deconstruction of any photographic standard – a generation, a world disintegrates from itself… in a world more connected than ever before, with more ways to unite and come together…we stand divided. The communications and technology industry has shaped the evolution of youth to become more of a shrinking shadow, endless masses coming up with a gaping hole of inequity around what true, honest, real communication is. Social retardation is a disease perhaps propagated in silicon valley as more startups find more ways to disconnect people from themselves and one another, a multi-billion dollar industry profiting from impersonal, disconnection. It’s a travesty really, when considered, those of the younger generation are no longer rewarded for good grades with the promise of cars and college funds but indulged with tablets and wifi hubs that promise a potential future filled with face to face impotence.
What i am striving to say here, is not the systematic slander of technology, god knows i appreciate my Skype-ability it allows me freedom from cell phones, and i definitely wouldn’t know what to do without my iMac, but i also have the blessing of understanding that a face to face apology certainly counts for alot more than a text-breakup, and i have wisened to the ways that ‘they’ have capitalized upon this culture of device driven living. Endless apps and countless convenient ways to make ones life better, never-wavering wifi signals mean that wherever you are, you can be tracked. Like a dog with a homing device in its collar- wherever you go, with your smartphone engaged you are potentially a moving target. The NSA ‘spying’ scandal is no news nor is it a joke. It’s a reality that those who are aware and take seriously- and in our day to day communications we wisely choose to take many of our important discussions ‘offline’
In an internet age we face possibly as many obstacles as we do benefits, all things considered. The rise of the web has been an irreplaceable opportunity for connection and considering the many issues, scandals and obstacles that its safety- as a space of free expression, freedom of information and freedom to unite and to fortify- faces, let’s pray it remains that way. The reality is that there is a consistent threat to privacy, a consistent threat to anonymity that is inherently promised by the web, a consistent threat to your ability as a free person of your nation to gather and disseminate information, to assemble, to unite and to seek the truth. What was invented as an infinitely wide bridge between gaps- continues to run the risk of becoming infinitesimal in its ability to provide security to cross those bridges.
Think you aren’t affected by this? Think that you aren’t being programmed by your technology?… consider basic human interaction- have ever broken up with someone via text? basic written communication skills… do you think UR and LOL are reasonable forms of speech to use regardless of circumstance? Take an inventory of devices, how many do you own? How many hours per day do you spend staring at a screen, the size is irrelevant- for infiltration cannot be measured in pixel ratio or in widescreen – of what nature is the information that you consume on these devices? Immediately subtract the hours spent toiling for whatever your means for revenue generation is, and specifically focus on what manner of ‘entertainment’ you consume. How much television do you watch on a weekly basis? What is the nature of that programming? What is your favourite show? All of these questions, regardless of individual answer- have the same answer really- no matter what screen size you consume your data from, you’re prey to manipulation, there’s an app to tell you what to eat, track where you are at all moments, an app to remind you, an app to get you laid, an app to show you where to go, what to see what to wear, how to think, feel and breathe- a culture becoming ever more reliant on smartdevices in place of smarts. Artificial intelligence has taken on a whole new meaning in the new millenium and most would be at a complete and paralytic loss without their iPhone to help ‘program’ their life.
So whether it’s a tablet screen or a TV screen, and whether you watch CNN or MTV- you can bet what’s left of your freedom- that your reality is being strategically and fundamentally altered, engineered and encoded with subliminal messaging enough to change your mind.
“ …know the enemy and need not fear the results of a hundred battles.“
#a word from your sponsors …
Consider first, the term ‘programming’- how often have you meditated on the whys and whats behind the purpose of using this term to describe what is shown to you on the screen? there is a reason it is called programming, and that is far less to do with scheduling than it is brainwashing. From ‘reality’ shows to Fox ‘news’ info-tainment, switch on the TV at any time of the day and you will witness what has become a full-scale attack on your consciousness. The foundation that allows this assault on your reality to go on, is funded largely in part by product placement and 30 second spots that subliminally and blatantly play upon your weakness, your uncertainty, your self-esteem, your emotional intelligence being consistently manipulated to serve the bottom lines of brands that have built this modern world. In essence you are being told what to do, who to love, what you are worth and consequently what you are not worth unless you buy that new cosmetic or cadillac. Indeed the very essence of your spirit is being drained from you at an energetic level, while your ego is being played upon to drive the quarterly sales figures.
Marketing itself will have a spot on this list all to itself so i wont waste too much precious time articulating its place in the formula; however elemental here is that you understand the level of control that marketing has on your life; especially when you are engaged both visually and verbally, the television commercial has its roots in control- mastered, is the art of influence, certain is the notion that you will buy.
By the age of 23, i was brought to a decision that would change my life forever. Staring at University course catalogs i had narrowed my focus down to 2 separate paths- i would either go forth with my god-given talent, follow the sound of my soul and enroll in Journalism- or i could choose Advertising, Something entirely foreign and entirely opposite to my character in so many ways. Never in my life had i any interest in marketing, advertising or any semblance of sales- in fact i felt a guttural disgust when pondering what it must be like to live life as a salesperson- pushing product and whoring useless junk that no person really needs… yet the moment of truth came- and as i weighed out my decisions i took an unexpected turn. I suffered for a while under the weight of this decision.. ( did i make it just to please my partner – did i follow the dollar instead of my heart? why did i do this?!!)
It was only a year or so after graduating and taking a gig at my first agency that it became clear to me- the choice i made to go against the perceived current of my life, diving into unknown waters and potentially committing to a life of whoring product – was in fact one of the single most brilliant decisions i have ever made. It became clear to me, as i learned the sinister, smarmy nature of the industry and became wise to the clever sociopathic strategies that compose campaigns to convert and control consumers- that by mastering this knowledge, by becoming enlightened to the manipulations of marketing i could never be controlled by it. In effect i was holding the key to freedom in a very real way. Equipped with the hard won wisdom of what is in many ways beyond deplorable, i was armed with the capacity to create change on an entirely different level.
Back to the topic at hand- much of the funding for television programming is based on advertising dollars- primetime spots during superbowl are sold for millions, american idol and other fabricated circuses of exploitation no doubt garner the same- millions of viewers each week tune in to watch mindless drivel that is doing unspoken, unrealized damage to their lives and the deep pockets behind all of this belong to the brands that invest millions in hiring agencies to hock their shit to consumer masses who will, without doubt venture off to purchase their junk if its spotted on a celebrity, or product-placed within a sitcom or sponsoring a show that they invest their lives in following… Marketing is an original mind control. Its strategies are built to play upon your needs, ignite your egos, harness your weakness, influence your actions, convince you to endlessly fall prey. billions spent each year on researching your behaviours, taking stock of every move you make, every minute you spend and how you spend it. This information is used to develop the slogans and create the images, compel the clicks- that sell you your shoes and make you hungry for poisonous food that will give you cancer. It’s psychological warfare and most are unaware they’re in a battle.
The programs on television itself are another beast- sitcoms are scripted to engage your emotions, to showcase circumstances that resonate with your own, or to showcase worlds that humble folk only dream of. Useless digressions that are propped up by the funding of corporate criminals who are earning their filthy fortunes on the backs of your demise. Has Reality television has been crafted to hold a mirror up – to show the viewer himself? To portray ‘reality’ ?…a reality that is riddled with strategic manipulations, sociopathic experiments full of petty bickering, chaotic and useless competition hoisting up ego that all serves no constructive means but to further confuse your senses. Competitive television programs that feature ‘normal people’ who are following a dream being whisked off to hollywood to sing or to dance and be judged upon their talents or in 99% of cases their lack thereof) as they are edited from the script. Whatever fuels the ratings that commands more expensive media space is what makes its way to your home plasma and hearts; Not only that; but the content of most of what makes it to the screen is heavily laden with subliminal messaging beyond the advertising, its intentions are built upon the systematic sensationalism of destruction, desensitization, disconnection and devolution. Behind the TV set lays an intricate world of corruption and ill will, behind the glammed up red carpet events, beyond the stages of idol and away from the eyes of the millions who pay millions to play unwitting victim, there is an army of elite with an agenda that certainly does not align with the morality that the Nation is supposedly built upon. The relentless assault on your senses is a 24 hour a day affair that requires no guest list, no need to leave the comfort of your couch and no path to awakening. Simply tuning in to that channel is a frequency of discord – regardless of soundtrack. The energetic impact alone is an attack on vitality. Sapping your life force without ever touching you.
Perhaps the most devastating aspect of all of this is a semi-newly coined term- ‘ TV Kids’ tv-kids are described as children who are regularly cared for, distracted, and raised up from infancy by television sets. Plopped in front of them – sit the future of humanity, being raised by commercials and animated manipulation. This is the equivalent of feeding your children nothing but cheetos and chocolate bars every meal for a month- make no mistake, It’s both junk food for the mind and programming for the behaviour- Dangerous and stealth like an asymptomatic disease that creeps up slowly and destroys your insides, turning generations into disconnected, apathetic, angry, aggressive, desensitized and entirely programmed versions of themselves.
Here are some statistics to bring some clarity to this disease.
According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches more than 4 hours of TV each day (or 28 hours/week, or 2 months of nonstop TV-watching per year). In a 65-year life, a person will have spent 9 years glued to the tube.
- • Number of minutes per week that parents spend in meaningful conversation with their children: 3.5
- • Number of minutes per week that the average child watches television: 1,680
- • The average child will watch 8,000 murders on TV before finishing elementary school.
- • An average American child will see 200,000 violent acts and 16,000 murders on TV by age 18
- • Media technology now offers more ways to access TV content, such as on the Internet, cell phones and iPods. This has led to an increase in time spent viewing TV, even as TV-set viewing has declined. 41% of TV-viewing is now online, time-shifted, DVD or mobile
- • A University of Michigan researcher demonstrated that watching violent media can affect willingness to help others in need : Read about the study here: Comfortably Numb: Desensitizing Effects of Violent Media on Helping Others.
- • According to the AAP, “Extensive research evidence indicates that media violence can contribute to aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, nightmares, and fear of being harmed.” Watching violent shows is also linked with having less empathy toward others.
- • Even having the TV on in the home is linked to more aggressive behavior in 3-year-olds. This was regardless of the type of programming and regardless of whether the child was actually watching the TV
- • Advertisers target kids, and on average, children see tens of thousands of TV commercials each year This includes many ads for unhealthy snack foods and drinks. Children and youth see, on average, about 2,000 beer and wine ads on TV each year . ( see resources @ the end )
Don’t be fooled. Beyond these statistics are agendas.
So. Why cultivate nations of disconnected, apathetic, angry, aggressive, de-sensitized and morally questionable people? I ask you to meditate upon that as you continue to read…
When it comes to media it goes so far beyond simply the television programming, it’s a multi-trillion dollar, multi-dimensional, multi-media campaign to mold you.
Beyond television alone, there are of course the hollywood big budget manipulations rife with symbolism and blatant tactic- effectively reaching billions via the box office. There are apps, ads, sites, shops, sites all carefully crafted by a shadow elite, there have always been billboard top 40 soundtracks that fuel the agenda- puppeteered pop stars programmed with their messages, music videos hiding imagery in plain sight revealing point blank who it is that programs your entertainment, and your entrainment.
Media is a trillion dollar feast for all, greedy corporations gag you with their filthy cocks and with eyes wide shut – it’s welcomed with open-mouths.
Multi-trillion dollar mega-empires continue to be built up and torn down by ‘they’ whom strive for your ultimate destruction. Just watch the tabloids and the entertainment news shows- watchdogs for whichever celebrities happen to be executing their programming flawlessly, and for those who aren’t well there is always rehab…
As far as we could go with media, we’ve made the choice not to delve into the music industry to exemplify its power. prowess and persuasion over the populus, trust us when we say soundtracking your life has a much different meaning when looked at through the lens of truth.
The medium is the message and the message needs to come through without distortion. There are thousands of peeps who have dedicated thousands of hours to out-ing the hidden messages and exposing the true nature of major mainstream media – and while its true- up against mainstream programming and without billions of advertising dollars behind them they become not much more than wielders of nonsense and conspiracy. However there are more and more and more every day who are #WakingTFU and wherever you look, if you can cut through egoic overtones and personal agenda pushers, there is always truth to be found and there will always be propoganda, projection, psychological warfare and political agendas in the strive to lead you astray… We leave it with you to distill your own understanding…it’s yours for the taking.
dig into the following:
read and listen:
TV: Your Mind. Controlled: By Melissa Melton
excerpt: ” Type ‘television’ and ‘low vibrational energy’ into a search engine, and it’ll quickly return the fact that watching a lot of TV is like undressing your mind and submerging it into a bath of negative energy. TV effectively numbs the left side of your brain and renders you helpless to your right brain which is incapable of decoding and critically analyzing the information being presented to you. Essentially, you go on ‘auto-pilot’.”
TV Propaganda and the Mind Control Culture:
excerpt: “Few subjects present an indisputable window into modern society than the electronic version of reality that is dispensed through television broadcasts. This technology does not require interactive skills or critical thinking acumen. Just watch and fall into a daydream trance. TV is the stealth killer that penetrates 114.7 million American households.”
Media’s Use of Propaganda to Persuade People’s Attitude, Beliefs and Behaviors by Johnnie Manzaria & Jonathon Bruck
excerpt: ” Indeed, there is more to the presentation of information than the facts one uses. The placement of the facts and the order can slowly mold the understanding of the reader. Through specific propaganda techniques reprogramming, authority, and commitment to consistency the author is able to take a potentially dangerous situation and make the reader feel completely comfortable with the various scenarios that may ensue.”

David Icke on the Music Industry Agenda:
David Icke encapsulates humanity’s current plight and how we can secure our freedom from the Hidden Hand behind global events:
Beyond marketing and media’s grip, beyond the things you consume which end up controlling you – beyond the reaches of anyone… is your spirit.
Obviously the aforementioned is only just a glimpse into the vast array of ways in which we are subject to being tethered… albeit within those few is a vile landscape of endless and interconnected proportion. Even just the small measure of this truth shared herein- ought be enough to instigate action in those willing to embody and live within the truth. Consider the reality that This is only number two in a list of the 10 truths- and already we have covered a mammoth amount of challenges facing modern day warriors in the battle to ascend.
This volume of the ten truths series, as profoundly intricate and vast in proportion as it is, took me over 2 months to write. …Sitting down for hours at a time in front of my computer, gathering resources and diving into research to backup the truth that i so desperately wanted to deliver- left me exhausted each time i undertook to finish it, regularly i would write a few paragraphs, gather sums of information and regularly it would render me physically ill or suffocated- due to the sheer weight of it all… ( this happened over and over 15 times according to wordpress’s ‘revisions count’ ) and as such i would have to return to the primary piece of advice offered with this series, which is the teaching of balance. I would walk away for days, sometimes weeks and wait for the call to return in fortitude to strive to finish it. Please hold the lesson of balance in your consciousness always, and especially during this quickening, this time of great awakening, being in balance grants warriors the fortitude to keep striving to thrive.
Humanity was not always like this, we did not always live under a paradigm that places manufactured wealth higher on the food chain than human happiness or basic personal liberty. At an overall what has happened to us, is that we have forgotten our identities. Humans were once ( and will again become ) 4th and 5th dimensional beings with the ability to manifest any reality they dreamed up at the blink of an eye. We were once a great and noble race that lived in harmony with the understanding of the ultimate truth of existence which is that we are all one. Interconnected and unified in the great cosmic consciousness. Encoded in our DNA is the truth of our capabilities, written within our essence are the answers we spend a lifetime seeking. This life is a great remembrance, and bless the blood in our veins we are waking up from amnesia.
watch: the hidden history of humanity:
The ultimate understanding is that we already are everything we can be- but an ever widening gap in memory and an ever-increasing opposition that seeks to keep us blinded and divided – keeps us from this truth. Seeks to control our ability to reclaim our birthright and remember ourselves.
The path to this remembrance is fraught with so much chaos its often as if we are akin to salmon struggling our way against the stream to make our way to fertile grounds.
Elemental to reversing the flow of the current is identifying that which opposes us, that which seeks to catch us in its nets and splay us across tables of rich folks on cedar planks, smoked with a side of fragrant dill.
Those who exist in the darkness, who toil to create tragedy, who traverse miles and spend millions to build intricate strategies to keep you from what is already yours- the biggest travesty is that those feeble, anti-heroes should win you over. That you should leave this earthly incarnation without ever truly knowing the taste of freedom, without ever truly understanding all that’s within you. Without ever truly loving yourself completely. Without ever truly returning to your default nature of thriving. That is what drives me to write, that is what keeps me moving forward, that is what i sacrifice for, what i continue to push myself with- the belief that by inspiring you to your ultimately beautiful nature – you might ultimately awaken to yourself.
may you be nourished by your knowledge and may your Warrior’s arsenal be ever-expanded as you shed your ignorance for awakening…
With continued service to the light,
blessings and love,
