    Breaking The Zombie Programming: We Can Become Conscious! Breaking The Zombie Programming: We Can Become Conscious! Document Transcript

    • Breaking The Zombie Programming: WeCan Become Conscious!Steve WatsonInfowars.comOct 14, 2012During the mid 1990s two fascinating papers were presented in a publication called The Journalof Consciousness Studies.The first was titled Conversations with Zombies, by Todd C. Moody, a Philosophy professor at St.Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. The second was a direct response written by Charles T. Tart of theInstitute of Transpersonal Psychology, entitled Yes, We Are Zombies, But We Can Become Conscious!Both papers embrace the notion that consciousness, or our awareness of our own awareness, could be aphenomenon independent from or non-essential to the processes of the brain and the nervous systemand associated behavior that stems from it.In other words, we as humans are capable of living most of the time in a reduced state of consciousnessakin to that of a zombie; a waking sleep. Both papers argue that there is a higher form of“superconsciousness” as Moody calls it, or an “expanded consciousness state” in Tart’s words.Moody states: The `zombie problem’ is the problem of consciousness, stated in a particularly provocative way. Given any functional description of cognition, as detailed and complete as one can imagine, it will still make sense to suppose that there could be insentient beings that exemplify that description. That is, it is possible that there could be a behaviourally indiscernible but insentient simulacrum of a human cognizer: a zombie. [...]
    • “Indeed, if conscious inessentialism is true, it is quite possible for an entire world of zombies to evolve… It is behaviours, after all, and not subjective states, that are subjected to evolutionary selection pressures. If those behaviours do not require consciousness, then evolution is indifferent to it.”Tart notes: “Ordinary, ‘normal’ consciousness is indeed a zombie-like state of greatly constricted and distorted, if not absent, ‘consciousness’. I have given such ordinary consciousness the technical name of ‘consensus consciousness’ in the purely descriptive sense and ‘consensus trance’ when focusing on it as a restricted state.”While Moody concludes that we could all be zombies living only “to the power of Z”, and never fullyexperiencing a kind of “mystic” interaction with higher powers or God, Tart believes that it is possibleto experience an “awakening”: “I know from personal experience that there is a transient and perhaps permanent ‘awakening’ from consensus trance/consciousness, a clarification or lucidity, that is rewarding and adaptive in itself, as well as vividly illustrating the zombie-like qualities of ordinary consciousness. [...] People in this expanded consciousness state or process seem indeed to understand each other fairly well, even though what they communicate may sometimes seem ineffable to those in ordinary, zombie-like consciousness”Tart argues that by focusing the mind on “the space between thoughts”, in the tradition of many Easternenlightenment philosophies such as Sufism or Zen, one can “awaken” from this consensus trance andrealise there is a greater consciousness potential: “I have now experienced the space between thoughts many times, that I can often produce and prolong that expanded consciousness state, to various degrees, at will, and that from within that kind of `spaciousness’, it is clear that my ordinary consciousness, where I live 99+% of my life, is indeed zombie-like. Yet in this state of zombie consciousness, which is `normal’ for our civilization, I am generally considered an intelligent, articulate and successful person.
    • [...] my ordinary state of consciousness is zombie-like in the general pejorative sense of the term. These zombie qualities include: (a) a greatly reduced sense of aliveness and vitality; (b) a great narrowing of perspective and perception; (c) a consuming psychological identification with some small subset of my full potential; (d) reduced intelligence stemming from this narrow perspective and identification; and (e) a selfishness, a self-centredness as compared to a more open and compassionate attention to the rest of reality.”Tart posits that, much like when weawaken from a dream and realise that “thedream state was a quite inferior state ofconsciousness,” when we return fromexperiencing “that ‘space betweenthoughts’ or expanded consciousness” toour everyday state, we are able to realisethat we are living a limited existence, andthat we are “often suffering over‘problems’ that [a]re not real,” problems that only exist by virtue of our constricted mental condition.In his conclusion, Tart urges the reader to “experiment with ‘awakening’” and warns that if we do not,we are doomed to a zombie existence: “I believe everyone has had at least fleeting moments of expanded consciousness, even if largely forgotten in the hectic rush of zombie lifeZ, and this commentary is to remind you of them and their importance. If we do not develop this wider perspective, we shall, in Moody’s terms, just have our zombie science of consciousnessZ, thoughtZ, feelingZ, hopeZ, fearZ, lifeZ and deathZ. Speaking from my occasional experiences of expanded consciousness, that would be sad indeed.”While Moody and Tart’s theorizing on the zombie existence is fascinating and enlightening, they do notdelve into great detail regarding the origins of zombie consciousness. Specifically what is it that isrestricting our mind potential? Without knowing this it difficult to understand exactly how we breakour zombie programming.Here are a few suggestions:Food, Water, and Air - We are being bombarded with chemicals that are literally altering our brainsand the way we interpret reality. Fluoride in drinking water has been proven to lower IQ. Manyadditives and pesticides in food are toxins that shut down brain stimulation, leading to a general lack ofconcentration and apathy. Unlabeled GMO food has been proven to cause all manner of ailments in lab
    • animals. No one quite knows why chemtrails arebeing sprayed in our skies, but the resulting heavymetals that we are breathing and that are enteringthe soil are directly affecting our brains.Solutions: Eat organic, cut out fast foods, rejectGMOs, educate others on the existence of chemtrailprograms.Drugs, Vaccines – Big pharmaceutical companiesmake money from getting us hooked on substancesand medications that do not cure us from anything,but literally alter our brains. More than onequarter of U.S. children are on some form ofmind-altering medication. Vaccines containing mercury based preservatives are being given to childrenand babies. Mercury is a deadly poison that accumulates in the brain.Solution: Avoid anti-depressants, research natural remedies, educate others on the dangers of vaccines.Television – TV induces a state of semi consciousness. It literally alters the state of the brain. In youngchildren it inhibits development of social skills. See our piece on how TV is zombifying humanity.Solutions: Turn it off! Reading and radio increase cognition and build neuron paths.Education - Public schools promote systems of control and encourage subservience to those systems.Solutions: Charlotte Iserbyt’s book The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, lays bare the role ofGlobalist foundations in shaping a future intended to produce servile drones lorded over by a fullyeducated, aware elite class.Media agendas, Propaganda placement – Perception of reality is shaped by a large extent by whatyou read and watch. The mainstream media is wholly owned by large corporations who have their ownagendas, which do not incorporate your freedom of expression and critical thinking. The same bigcorporations own the large movie studios and TV companies. Propaganda placement and predictiveprogramming is now an accepted part of programming and films.Solution: Seek alternative media sources, expose media lies. Research predictive programmingtechniques and learn to recognise propaganda. Author Alan Watt has written extensively on thesubject.Bread and Circus – Everyone loves to watch the occasional football game. However, modernprofessional sports have become nothing more than big businesses promoting tribalism and division.They are riddled with corruption and serve only to distract from reality. When more people protest andriot over sports matters than they do over real issues, it indicates serious social zombification.Solution: Engage in and support local sports. Switch off. Refuse to pay huge amounts of money towatch major sports events.
    • Will The Election Results Cause MassiveRiots To Erupt All Over America?Michael SnyderThe Economic CollapseOct 12, 2012Will the most divisive campaign in modernAmerican history culminate in massive riots inour major cities? Right now, supporters ofBarack Obama and supporters of Mitt Romneyare both pinning all of their hopes on a victoryon November 6th. The race for the presidencyis extremely tight, and obviously the side thatloses is going to be extremely disappointedwhen the election results are finalized. Butcould this actually lead to violence? Could weactually see rioting in communities all overAmerica? Well, the conditions are certainlyripe for it.A whole host of surveys over the past few yearshave shown that Americans are very angry andvery frustrated right now. In fact, a PewResearch Center poll from late last year foundthat 86 percent of all Americans are eitherangry or frustrated with the federalgovernment. We have seen this frustrationmanifest in protest movements such as the TeaParty and Occupy Wall Street, but right nowthings are fairly calm as liberals andconservatives both look forward to November 6th. Many Republicans started the countdown to thenext election literally the day after John McCain lost back in 2008. All of their hopes of getting Obama out of the White House are riding on a Romney victory. For many Democrats, Barack Obama is a “once in a generation” icon. Just the thought of Mitt Romney replacing Obama in the White House is enough to push many of them to the brink of insanity. In recent years we have seen horrible rioting erupt in cities after major sports championship games. How much worse could the rioting potentially be ifthis bitterly contested election is decided by a very narrow margin – especially if there are allegations
    • that the election is “stolen”?The election is nearly four weeksaway, and many Obama supportersare already threatening to riot ifObama loses. The following aresome very disturbing messages thatwere posted on Twitter recently thathave been reposted onTwitchy.com….“If Romney wins I’m Starting aRiot….Who’s WIT ME???”“I Hope The USA Is Well Aware ThatIf In The Event This CharacterRomney Wins The Election, ThePeople Will Start A Country WideRiot! #Power”“If Romney is elected president, itsgon be a riot its gon be a riot.”“If ROMNEY GETS IN THE WHITEHOUSE …U MIGHT AS WELLKILL ME NOW …..CAUSE ITSGONNA BE A ************RIOT !!!”“If Romney became President andtook away welfare DowntownCincinnati would become a riot”“If Romney takes away food stamps 2 Chainzz in this bit IMMA START A RIOT”“If Romney wins. (which i highly doubt) THERE WILL BE A RIOT—”The following are a few more tweets that I found which threaten a potential riot if Obama loses theelection….From @joecools_world….“Need 2 come up wit a game plan if Romney win…. Riot all thru Newark”From @killacate….“I swear on everything I love if Romney wins ima riot. I don’t even care if its just me.”Romney supporters are not really threatening to riot, but many of them are proclaiming that they mayleave the country if Obama wins. Here are some examples….From @BrentskiTheBoss….“If Obama gets reelected I may leave the country”From @AbbieFickes….“im sorry but if obama were to win again, i might as well leave the country and live in zimbabwe”
    • This presidential campaign has been gettingincreasingly heated, and individuals on bothsides have been committing some despicableacts.For example, in a previous article I mentionedthat some Romney campaign signs down inVirgina have been smeared with excrement.Over in Ohio, a huge pile of manure wasdumped right in front of Warren CountyDemocratic headquarters early on Tuesdaymorning…. Volunteers at the Warren County Democratic headquarters, just north of Cincinnati, were shocked and disappointed by a political prank unloaded on them early Tuesday morning – someone dumped a pile of horse manure in the parking lot of the headquarters building on US 42, just north of Lebanon.It appears that both sides have resorted to literally slinging crap around.There is so much hate in America today, and this campaign is bringing a lot of it to the surface. It iseven being reported that a bus driver told a 12-year-old boy that he should have been aborted becausehis family has a Romney campaign sign in their yard…. Belling read a letter from the 12-year-old boy’s mother, detailing the alleged abusive behavior by the bus driver. Apparently, the Romney-Ryan yard sign bugs the bus driver and she’s been harassing the boy, making rude comments to him related to politics. When the driver engaged the 12-year-old boy in a political conservation, he responded by saying that Obama is pro- abortion. The bus driver allegedly said to the child, “Maybe your mom should have chosen abortion for you.”How sick is that?You can strongly disagree with someone without being mean and without being hateful.
    • Right now, the United States is a bubblingcauldron of frustration and anger that could be setoff at any moment. This election couldpotentially be a “trigger point” which could endup unleashing a lot of that anger and frustration.Already, there have been allegations that theRepublicans have been committing voterregistration fraud. Democrats are furious aboutthis.Evidence has also emerged that Democrats havebeen willing to assist voters in registering to votein two different states. The following is from arecent article by Mac Slavo…. When undercover reporters visited various locations across the country they received the same response from Obama campaign staffers – that it’s basically okay to vote multiple times if you happen to be registered in two or more states. In Houston, Texas, for example, the Project Veritas reporter made her intentions known, and rather than being rebuffed for her planned illegal activity, she was provided assistance with obtaining the proper forms to be registered in two states and was told to say “I don’t know” if the double-voting ever became an issue. Similar situations unfolded at other DNC funded community organizations.It appears quite probable that whichever side loses this election will accuse the other side of stealingthe election.And if millions of Americans feel that the election has been stolen from them, that will make it muchmore likely that we will see rioting.Keep your ears open for phrases such as “voter fraud” and “election fraud” following this election.People are so angry already that even allegations that someone stole the election could be enough to setthe streets of America on fire.As always, let us hope for the best, but let us also prepare for the worst.Read more of Michael Snyder’s reports at Economic Collapse Blog.Threats To Riot If Obama Loses Flood Internet!http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1itPGKQEm2QRELATED: Thomas Sowell – Race Riots If Obama LosesRELATED: Are Race Riots News?RELATED: Twitter explodes with threats of riotshttp://www.infowars.com/
