You are sitting in a room, you look about you and you perhaps see a plant or a table. Unless you are extremely sick or have ingested some kind of mind altering drug, you can be quite sure that what you see out there is real. Most of us do not question the things we perceive with our senses.
We can all say that what we see out there, what we experience, is real. We take it for granted that whatever we see in the outside world, whatever we perceive through our senses, is what is out there.
It would be very laughable if I were to tell you that what we see out there is really a type of indoctrination. Many throughout history have been ostracized and sometimes destroyed for far less. For example if I were to say that a certain country is bad or that a certain religion is wrong and that the perceptions or logic that you used to come to the conclusion that those things that you believe are right, is faulty; then I would be questioning a fundamental assumption or belief that you have about what is really out there. I would be questioning your perceptions and that can be a very dangerous thing.
In my book, The Occult Experience, I do not only question singular beliefs like religion or patriotism, I question the entirety of our external perceptions. What I am essentially saying in my book is, that our external reality, that which we consider to be the real world, is actually an imposed illusion. I argue and make the point that what we perceive to be out there is only the result, or mostly the result, of a type of belief structure that has been imposed on us since the day of our birth. That this imposed belief structure clouds our judgment, and limits our possibilities. That this imposed belief structure relies mainly on our assumptions about the existence of an objective world. An objective world in the sense that we, and all the things around us are essentially objects. That we do not have much more to us than does that table or that plant that you might be looking at in your room. That boundaries are defined and nothing exists beyond these boundaries, that we are mechanistic creatures; the pinnacle of a mechanistic evolutionary process that is brought about by definite and arbitrary laws that govern the entire universe.
In my book I give you some concrete examples of why even scientists are beginning to believe and agree with the fact that this very object oriented world that we perceive is a lie. Modern scientific advances like the FMRI are allowing scientists to see our brains in a completely different light. We are beginning to discover that our sense perceptions are far more malleable than we first supposed. That our brains can create many diverse external realities.
Studies into the cognitive processes of different cultures, of feral children, and people with certain kinds of brain injury are beginning to show us just how malleable our cognitive perceptions really are. The study of hypnosis and mass hypnotism have shown us for over a century now that human perception can be incredibly altered through different methodologies.
Now I’m not trying to say here that this belief structure, this indoctrination that is imposed on all of us is a type of evil plan perpetuated on us. Then again I am not saying that this is not the case either.
Certainly we can see that a group consciousness, or a groupthink as it were, has allowed us to do some amazing things. For example our civilization would not be possible without this indoctrinating system. Through our integrated group psyche, through our ability to perceive like those all around us, we have been able to create great civilizations and masterful works of engineering. It is indeed the case that it was most likely an advantageous process to be able to have all of us be able to participate in a reality that we could all see clearly. The development of language and writing made this group mind or psyche even more concrete.
There is an advantage to this matrix, and our ancestors knew it.
Unfortunately this group mind, this indoctrination that has been imposed upon us is also a trap. And I say that this indoctrination has been imposed upon us because of the fact that while it is indeed the case that this belief structure is most advantageous, it is also a cage and a trap. One that we must now agree to since we don’t have any other choice.
Perhaps at a time long ago, perhaps before the invention of writing, people had much more freedom within this group belief structure. Unfortunately it is the case that we are now caged within our reality structure, a structure that does not have much flexibility and any deviation from its imposed beliefs can mean quick and certain punishment.
As an individual, you are no longer able to question the system. Certainly we can see through our history that questioning the system would bring about certain punishment. As I said we can look at the witch trials or other such events where people who questioned or acted in a manner outside of the belief structures imposed on us were quickly and ruthlessly weeded out.
With the advent of our new information age, this indoctrinating group mind has gained incredible power.
I’m sure that using this group mind we can certainly grow as the species even more, that we can and will create even greater things together.
But with the development of this incredibly powerful information system that connects all of us around the world, we are also at a cusp. A time when it might become impossible for any of us to even contemplate that there are more things out there than we have cared to dream of.
But why exit this group mind if it has so many positive attributes? The reason why we need to learn how to step outside of this group indoctrination is because this group mind is incredibly limiting. As I said it turns a magical creature into a mechanistic meat sack. A meat robot existing in a flat and soulless universe, a universe that is destined to wither and fade away through total entropy.
My book explores ways to exit this group consciousness. It tells you how to escape this matrix that we have imposed upon ourselves, imposed upon ourselves so well that we have forgotten that we were the ones who imposed it upon us. Imposed upon ourselves so well that we have forgotten that there is anything else but ‘it’.
We need to exit this matrix in order to find our true potential. My book “The Occult Experience” shows you how to escape this imposed group mind. It tells you how it happens and how to get out of it.
Using the methods outlined in the book, you will be able to expand your intellect, perceive a greater range on the energetic radiation all around us, begin to access far greater ranges of subconscious information.
This book is designed to prove to you that the Occult experience is real and that this experience can be quite beneficial to all.
Whether you are interested in proving to yourself, once and for all, the reality of paranormal phenomena. Whether you are a paranormal investigator that needs new ways to truly expand and begin to really see that which you seek, or whether you are an advanced Occult practitioner that wishes to try new and powerful methods to go beyond where you currently find yourself;
The occult experience is real and it is as meaningful and as pertinent as the objective reality that you so take for granted now. The occult experience requires focus, practice, and patience but I do believe that it is the one thing that will start filling some of the holes that we all have, some of the questions that we all have about our existence and about our place in this infinite and magical universe.
