The Hero Story Archetype

Archetypes, Myths, and Characters

An archetype is a prototype or model from which something is based. The character archetypes listed here derive from Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces and are deeply rooted in the myths and legends of many cultures. A significant character's role can often be associated with one of these archetypes, because storytelling is as old as these myths and legends and is how they were handed down to us. Archetypes connect your story to the rich heritage of all storytelling.

And the Point Is?

I'm fortunate that at this time of my life I have no responsibilities so that I could indulge myself in the unraveling of many mysteries of my life.  Before I came down from Durango, Colorado I gave my kids my stuff only bringing a suitcase and my sewing machine.  I didn't want my life weighted down at all.  I'm working part time at an art store which still gives me a comfortable life since I'm only renting a room.  A very simple life, but it was all I could handle.

Now I'm coming out of this exile.  A recent dream was of being threatened by "aliens".  I never saw them but knew I had to escape.  I was in My House (My life) and tried hiding in the basement (subconscious) and knew I'd be trapped if I stayed there so I went to the rafters in the attic.  I never saw the "aliens" but they vomited into the windows and I escaped by driving away in a sports car.

So I'm at a threshold and am looking back.  What was the Point?

I learned that I couldn't just walk away from the "aliens" in my life.  I immediately found other versions.  A manager at work is another version of the Mayan.  Now I don't know if I drew him to me because I hadn't fully gotten a handle on that situation or he is part of the Mayan personality.  I don't think we reincarnate linearly but that one person can come back in several aspects.  With this guy, we have been dancing around each other in a final showdown of control.  I have to admit it brought all my insecurities to the surface.  I could not defeat him.  All I could do was rise above it all.  Go to the "rafters" of my soul. 

And the Point is?  I feel we recycle old dramas until they no longer push our buttons and we no longer attract that situation to us.  You can't run away from it until you no longer vibrate that drama.
And if you pass with this unresolved you will be reborn into the same thing. 
I'm no longer attached to this Manager's need to control and once I did that I physically felt much better and my life is working more smoothly.  I now create my life rather than react to circumstances.
New job opportunities are falling into my lap.  I'm giving myself till after Christmas to decide what I'll do.

My Intuition tells me that our planet is shifting it's vibration also and that our past life dramas are coming to an end, but that we have to Rise Above Them at this time to allow a transition.  All the unresolved situations are just bunching up in our lives.  Everyone I know is somewhat frantic as they deal with one crisis after another. 
I'm hoping that my life now is more efficient, that I live my life rather than it dictating the rules to me.

Thoughts

A few thoughts on this.
For the people who don't see this happening in their lives they have to understand that "doubt" is a thought that negates the power of positive thinking.
For the example of the "starving children", you have to realize that their thoughts are conditioned by the situations they were born into.  Yet there are plenty of examples of people who started in dire circumstances and went on to have amazing lives.  But if you were born into poverty or abuse and accept that is the way things are then your thoughts will continue to bring more of the same.
Also, some people only want to come into this physical life for a short period.  Some want an exciting life with a dramatic exit and others a long quiet uneventful time.  Life really is eternal and each life we live is like a part in our latest movie.

I believe that reincarnation  has to be factored in.  This last few years  has been a struggle for me to sort out a past life that I had posted.  I had relived being sacrificed and I found myself in  this life with those who participated and the physical residue of the experience.  I realize this is all subjective, but there is no doubt in my mind that it is a reality on some level that had influenced me my whole life.

One of my goals of coming to Santa Fe was to get away from everyone and to "reformat" myself.  I found a room to rent on Craigslist, sight unseen, from a lady I had been having dreams about two years earlier.  I had had a pretty nice life before this, but now I'm on an amazing path.
My Life Before All of This Happened
http://bethnm.blogspot.com/2011/08/my-spirit.html

My Latest Dream:
The Voice says "Bring your camel, it's time for an upgrade."  I lead a camel into this blank space and it vaporizes and in it's place is a hot pink race car convertible. 
This is one of many dreams with a similar theme.
Kamel, by the way, is Arabic for "Perfected".

The Back Story
I *friend had brought me to Ms K for a Soul Retrieval before I moved to Durango.  In the session I "was" a small girl  with some others walking through tall grass near a jungle being watched over by an old Shaman.  Ms. K asked "Is he a shape shifter?"  I arrogantly stared into his eyes as he turned into a Jaguar.  From what I have pieced together, he "saw" me through the little girl's eyes and wanted to access that power.  The child was later groomed, drugged and sliced in two before the Mayan I met in my waking dream with the hope that my Spirit Power would transfer to him.  Everyone who participated in the ritual....the Swordsman, the Shaman, the Mayan, the Druggist, the girls, the nurse....are people in my life.  We had unfinished business which I have taken care of during my stay here.  I have been released.
(And although I called him The Mayan, I started having dreams of Olmec Jaguar Transformation statues which I had not seen previously, but found on a Google search.)

Getting From There to Here

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lhhQwrdUk4

This is a Bashar video on the mechanics of instant travel whether across a room or across a star system based on the understanding that EVERYTHING is  ultimately Mind.
I've used this in my own life to change the direction my life was going.  Some day I expect to overcome the fear within and maybe teleport.
Where I lived in New Mexico has a similar divided highway as where I lived in Indiana.  My home in both places was a 15 minute drive to the Mall.  I believe that if a person could "forget" where they were they could start out in one state and "remember themselves" in another. 

In a smaller way when I realize that it is time for me to make a change I will visualize what that new and improved life would be like.  How I would feel and look and the kind of people I would hang out with.  And magically I would start to draw to me new opportunities that would lead me to the life I envisioned.

About 15 years ago I started to make collages notebooks of this process.  I would collect pages from magazines and every couple of months spread them all out and just spend an afternoon pasting.  I recently found one of my notebooks that had been boxed up for about ten years.  One of the favorite images I used a lot were the sculptures of Roxanne Swentzell of Santa Fe.
  
I now live in Santa Fe and one of my best friends runs the gallery that features her work.  This would be a small interesting story except it happens all the time.

How People Develop a Negative Core Belief


Definitions and Core Beliefs

This is a great Utube by Bashar on how core beliefs manifest in our lives.  One of the objections of metaphysics and the idea of manifesting is always when someone says that they tried to hold a positive thought and it never manifests.  Often it is a conflict with our core beliefs.  Bashar uses a common example.  Many people are raised with the quote "Money is the root of all evil"...and not wanting to be evil, at their core they are unable to manifest money.  Often children are given a negative self image as a core belief...these core beliefs often are what stand in the way of their success as an adult.  Check out the video.

The August "End of the World" PS

I ran into Patricia who I had not seen for a bout six months and she is the one who gave me the Glyphs finding them not to resonate with her.  She's not for the "out there" kind of stuff and seems more comfortable "listening" to the plant Divas....which I actually think she does.
She recommended this video "The Singing Plants of Damanhur".  When she started playing the plant's music for her garden the plants joined in. 
Here is a documentary on "The Secret Life of Plants" that explains how/why this happens.
We also compared notes on how the energy has changed recently and both of us came up with the same feelings on it.  Something shifted.  We did a shared "reading" and got that this was the point where Karma has been absolved.
Both of us grew up in families and situations were past life karma seemed to dictate how our lives played out.  That dynamic now has ended.  At the same time, those situations in my life just dropped for no reason. 
I personally went from feeling anxiously "waiting" to contently "Be-ing". 
Life is Grand.

Your Life Tone and Mayan Star Glyph

It turns out I am "Earth". 
This is a site where you can put your Birth Date in and calculate your Tone and Star Glyph that gives you your purpose.
The Mayan Tzolkin Calendar Calculator
Some one recently gave me a set of "Day Keeper Out of Time" Stones.  They sort of like doing Runes.  Without studying the booklet that came with it I pulled out four stones and have each morning.  Crazy accurate.
If you are interested you can find them at this site...go down five selections.
http://www.alternativescentral.com/mb-mayans(the).htm

According to the book the interpretations of the Glyphs are channel by beings who are Archetypal Beings beyond space and time.  I wonder if they are Archons?  Since I've been using them I've been having some very powerful dreams and energy pour through me.
When getting into anything like this I check with a pendulum first.  The idea is that Intuition "KNOWS" everything and is reflected in the kinetic flow of using a pendulum.
I "got" that it would be OK to use these, but I am aware that I am "communicating" with something pretty extreme and it will become a part of me if I continue.

Celestine Prophecy


The Celestine Prophecy is a 1993 novel by James Redfield that discusses various psychological and spiritual ideas which are rooted in many ancient Eastern Traditions and New Age spirituality. The main character of the novel undertakes a journey to find and understand a series of nine spiritual insights on an ancient manuscript in Peru. The book is a first-person narrative of the narrator's spiritual awakening as he goes through a transitional period of his life.

"The Celestine Prophecy" 9 Insights

     
     
   
 

The Nine Insights
by James Redfield

Summary by Alan Atkisson (Aug/94)
  1. Feeling restless? You're not alone: Everybody's starting to look for more meaning in life. Start paying closer attention to those seemingly "Chance Coincidences" - strange occurrences that feel like they were meant to happen. They are actually synchronistic events, and following them will start you on your path to spiritual truth.
  2. Observe our culture within its proper historical context. The first half of the past millennium was spent under the thumb of the church; in the second half we became preoccupied with material comfort. Now, at the end of the twentieth century, we've exhausted that preoccupation. We're ready to discover life's ultimate purpose.
  3. Start to get acquainted with the subtle energy that infuses all things. With practice, you can learn to see the aura around any living being and to project your own energy around it to give it strength.
  4. An unconscious competition for energy underlies all conflicts. By dominating or manipulating others, we get the extra energy we think we need. Sure, it feels good - but both parties are damaged in the conflict.
  5. The key to overcoming conflict in the world is the mystical experience, which is available to everyone. To nurture the mystical and build your energy, allow yourself to be filled with a sense of love.
  6. Childhood traumas block our ability to fully experience the mystical. All humans, because of their upbringing, tend toward one of four control dramas:
    • Intimidators steal energy from others by threat.
    • Interrogators steal it by judging and questioning.
    • Aloof people attract attention (and energy) to themselves by playing coy.
    • Poor me's make us feel guilty and responsible for them.
    Become aware of the family dynamics that created your control drama and you can focus on your essential question, which is how to make of your life a higher- level synthesis of your parents' lives.
  7. Once cleared of traumas, you can build energy through contemplation and meditation, focus on you basic life question, and start riding a steady stream of intuitions, dreams, and synchronistic coincidences, all guiding you in the direction of your own evolution and transformation.
  8. That evolution can't be done alone, so begin to practice the new "Interpersonal Ethic" by uplifting those who cross your path. Talk to people who make spontaneous eye contact with you. Avoid co-dependent relationships. Be there for people. Call attention to other people's control dramas. In groups, speak when the spirit (instead of the ego) moves you.
  9. Our purpose here is to evolve beyond this plane. Fewer people (a result of reproductive abstinence) and more old-growth forests will help us to sustain our energy and accelerate our evolution. Technology will do most of our work for us. As we begin to value spiritual insight more and more, we will pay those who bring it to us, and this will eventually replace the market economy and our need for paid employment. We can connect to God's energy in such a way that we will eventually become beings of light, and walk straight into heaven.

My Take on What "Might" Have Been History

There are too many unexplained objects that suggest that civilization was more sophisticated for a much longer time. 

The Goddess Cults existed way before Christianity and our Christian Holidays were copied after pagan seasonal and fertility celebrations.
This is a Christian site against that notion.
http://www.comereason.org/soc_culture/soc030.asp
And a site that explains the pagan origins of Christian holidays.
http://www.holierthanthou.info/holidays.html

Was the Christed figure was the latest Solar Diety?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christ_myth_theory
Jesus and Parallel "Crucified Saviors"
http://www.philvaz.com/apologetics/JesusEvidenceCrucifiedSaviors.htm

If anything I find this reassuring that there is a timeless message of  death and rebirth and the possibility of rising to become a Higher Man.  Was the Christ Story a metaphor for this process?
Many suggest that the teachings of Jesus came from the  Mystery Schools.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greco-Roman_mysteries

And the Ten Commandments were based on the Egyptian Book of the Dead.
http://edward.de.leau.net/the-10-commandments-are-a-copy-from-chapter-125-in-the-egyptian-book-of-the-dead-20070513.html

Jesus seems to be the one of many religious reformers at the time with his brother James taking over after his death.  This connection seems to be erased, along with the possibility of Jesus being married, because it there would have been a claim to the ruling of the Church by family.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brothers_of_Jesus 
However, the Roman Church State wiped out the Jewish community moving the Christian Cult to Rome.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_persecution_in_the_Roman_Empire
Putting  Peter in charge as the first Pope.
Peter had a problem with Mary Magdalene.
 Peter answered and spoke concerning these same things. He questioned them about the Saviour: "Did He really speak with a woman without our knowledge (and) not openly? Are we to turn about and all listen to her? Did He prefer her to us?"
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/maps/primary/mary.html
And women in general.  I question any "Word of God" that does not allow the power of the Divine Feminine.

The Church began to reflect the teachings Paul who I wonder was actually an agent of the Roman Church State and contradicted much of Jesus's teachings.
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/scrolls_deadsea/deadsea_scrollsdeception/scrollsdeception16.htm.

Constantine unified his Roman Empire in 325AD with the Council of Nicea which eliminated the Gnostics.
http://www.columbia.edu/cu/augustine/arch/sbrandt/nicea.htm
This is a site that totally disagrees with that.
http://www.letusreason.org/Current47.htm
However, what Nicea did was remove the possibility of a direct connection with God and making it only through the Church and denying that Jesus was a man who found God which denied the possibility of anyone to experience the Divine.
When Jesus is quoted as saying:
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
“Timeless truth, I tell you: 'whoever believes in me, those works which I have done he will also do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the presence of my Father.' “
John 14:12

So, in my humble opinion, The Power Base (who ever that is) denied the Divine Feminine and a private connection with the Divine and ruled/controlled by fear and false teachings.

Did Peter Devalue Women?

1 In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, 2 as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior.
3 And let not your adornment be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; 4 but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.
5 For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands. 6 Thus Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear.
 
1 Peter 3:16


 

 
 
 
 

Pauline Christianity..A Creation of Rome?

Among the most radical is G.A. Wells, a professor of German rather than of theology or history, whose view is that Jesus was a mythical figure and that Christianity was in good part invented by Paul.

Christian anarchists, such as Leo Tolstoy and Ammon Hennacy, believe Paul distorted Jesus' teachings. Tolstoy claims Paul was instrumental in the church's "deviation" from Jesus' teaching and practices, whilst Hennacy believed "Paul spoiled the message of Christ."[8][9] According to Tom O'Golo, the Ebionites believed Paul was a false prophet whose task was not to convert Romans to Christians but Christians to Romans.[10] Irenaeus, bishop of Lyon, wrote in the latter half of the 2nd century that the Ebionites rejected Paul as an apostate from the law, using only a version of the Gospel according to St. Matthew, known as the Gospel of the Ebionites.
Tom O'Golo postulates several key elements were added by Paul to Christian theology that weren't evident in Jesuism. These included:
  1. Original sin
  2. Making Jews the villains
  3. Making Jesus divine
  4. Transubstantiation of bread and wine into actual flesh and blood
  5. Jesus' death being seen as atonement for human sin
  6. Making Jesus the Messiah
  7. Shifting the emphasis from an earthly to a heavenly kingdom
  8. Enlarging the chosen people to include anyone who accepted Jesus as Saviour
  9. Making salvation a matter of belief in Jesus almost regardless of the demands of the Torah
  10. Establishing a hierarchy (literally a holy order) to create and control a Church and more importantly to create and control the beliefs of its membership
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pauline_Christianity

Contradictions in the Bible

Exodus 20:13: Thou shalt not kill.
Deuteronomy 5:17: Thou shalt not kill.
Matthew 5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.
Romans 13:9: For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
 
This "god" comes across a bit psychotic.
 
But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.  Luke 19:27
 
Exodus
 God decides to kill Moses because his son had not yet been circumcised. 4:24-26
 God will kill the Egyptian children to show that he puts "a difference between the Egyptians and Israel." 11:7
After God has sufficiently hardened the Pharaoh's heart, he kills all the firstborn Egyptian children. When he was finished "there was not a house where there was not one dead." Finally, he runs out of little babies to kill, so he slaughters the firstborn cattle, too. 12:29
 
But should you point that out and question the warning of false prophets are pointed out to you. 
 
2 Peter 2:1-22                    
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.

The Covenant of Circumcision

Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner—those who are not your offspring. 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.
http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+17&version=NIV

 we act out the world view of psychopaths by brutalizing our children as soon as they enter this world. The pain that their body experiences at such a formative stage is likely encoded in them for the rest of their lives, controlling them through fear and suffering. We cripple children when all they reach out for is affection. They ask for love and we give them the blade.  
http://www.sott.net/article/248940-Circumcision-Conditioning-the-Adult-by-Torturing-the-Child

Trauma of Circumcision

There is evidence that circumcision creates permanent brain damage. A recent study, where a circumcision was performed on an infant in a hospital MRI chamber, showed the brain after circumcision never returned to its baseline configuration. The infant brain was permanently changed.
http://circinfosite.com/11.html

In certain religions, circumcision is a sign of faith or obedience to God and the Bible.  According to scholars, circumcision as described in the Bible was nowhere near as traumatic or invasive as it is today (Winter, 2011).  Biblical circumcision removed significantly less skin, and was proof that the family and the individual man agreed to follow the rules put forth in the Old Testament.  In the New Testament, the Bible says that circumcision cuts a man off from God, and that Jesus sacrificed himself so we did not have to shed our blood in sacrifice to Him (Torrey, 2012; Bible, Galatians 5: 3-4, Ephesians 2:15).  This includes infant circumcision, which is vastly different from a Biblical circumcision where only the tip of the skin was cut, typically when an infant was eight days old.
http://lillylex.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/the-circumcision-decision/

Even if it is painful, the baby won't remember it.Reality check: The body is a historical repository and remembers everything. The pain of circumcision causes a rewiring of the baby's brain so that he is more sensitive to pain later  (Taddio 1997, Anand 2000).  Circumcision also can cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anger, low self-esteem and problems with intimacy.
http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/moral-landscapes/201109/myths-about-circumcision-you-likely-believe

Pain, Trauma, Sexual, and Psychological Effects of Circumcision                     Infant male circumcision continues despite growing questions about its medical justification. As usually performed without analgesia or anaesthetic, circumcision is observably painful. It is likely that genital cutting has physical, sexual and psychological consequences, too. Some studies link involuntary male circumcision with a range of negative emotions and even post-traumatic stress disorder

 (PTSD). Some circumcised men have described their current feelings in the language of violation, torture, mutilation and sexual assault. In view of the acute as well as long-term risks from circumcision and the legal liabilities that might arise, it is timely for health professionals and scientists to re-examine the evidence on this issue and participate in the debate about the advisability of this surgical procedure on unconsenting minors.

The authors believe that "neonatal circumcision may induce long-lasting changes in infant pain behavior because of alterations in the infant’s central neural processing of painful stimuli." They also write that "the long-term consequences of surgery done without anaesthesia are likely to include post-traumatic stress as well as pain.

The piece reviews the medical literature on infants’ responses to circumcision and concludes, "there is strong evidence that circumcision is overwhelmingly painful and traumatic." The article notes that infants exhibit behavioral changes after circumcision, and some men have strong feelings of anger, shame, distrust, and grief about having been circumcised. In addition, circumcision has been shown to disrupt the mother-infant bond, and some mothers report significant distress after allowing their son to be circumcised.The mechanisms mediating such changes in the newborn brain have remained largely unexplored. Maternal separation, sensory isolation (understimulation), and exposure to extreme or repetitive pain (overstimulation) may cause altered brain development.

(Circumcision is described as an intervention with long-term neurobehavioral effects.) These changes promote two distinct behavioral types characterized by increased anxiety, altered pain sensitivity, stress disorders, hyperactivity/attention deficit disorder, leading to impaired social skills and patterns of self-destructive behavior. The clinical importance of these mechanisms lies in the prevention of early adverse experiences and effective treatment of newborn pain and stress.

Bread and Circuses

"Bread and circuses" (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace,[1] as an offered "palliative." Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people.[2][3][4] The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the common man.
In modern usage, the phrase is taken to describe a populace that no longer values civic virtues and the public life. To many across the political spectrum, left and right, it connotes a supposed triviality and frivolity that characterized the Roman Republic prior to its decline into the autocratic monarchy characteristic of the later Roman Empire's transformation about 44 B.C.

The Perfect Prison

I have only just found this site and have not gone through it, but this essay seems spot on regarding the Madonna theme.  Women are much more powerful than we have come to believe, and if "shopping" can keep them distracted then they aren't much of a threat....
 
In the latter half of the 20th century, the Old World Order turned to psychological manipulation to extend their control over the world. The best prison is the one that requires no guards - where people walk into the cells without any fuss and lock themselves in. It takes immense resources to physically create an oppressive regime. In the Big Brother society envisaged by George Orwell, citizens were monitored round the clock. But how would you keep 300 million Americans under constant surveillance? If a person worked an eight hour surveillance shift then it would require three people (taking no breaks) to cover a 24-hr period of continually monitoring one person. 900 million people would be required to watch the 300 million Americans at all times. Where will the 900 million come from? And who will watch the watchers? And if everyone's watching everyone else, who's doing any work? Very quickly, the model breaks down. The reality is that surveillance operations performed by the CIA, MI5 etc are extremely expensive and only a tiny number of people can realistically be monitored. It doesn't matter how many satellites there are or how many CCTV cameras are trained on you. 99.99% of the time, no one's watching.
 
After WWII, the Old World Order realised that tyranny had become unworkable. It simply didn't make economic sense. Their brilliant insight was that people could be rendered harmless by giving them things they wanted. And what people wanted above all was fantasy, escapism, a refuge from reality. Advertising, TV, Hollywood, glitzy magazines - they all portray a world and lifestyle that is infinitely glittering and seductive to many people.

Once people are slaves to the fake world, they never want to leave. They are addicts, with a desperate craving for the glamour so lacking in their real lives. The online world Second Life gives people the opportunity to create an idealised, fantasy avatar of themselves that inhabits the sort of world in which they would like to live for real. Are these Second Lifers the sort of people likely to be pursuing the truth, challenging the Old World Order, breaking out of their prison? These people will never rebel as long as they get their fantasy fix. If you are getting things that you think you want, you have no feeling that you are anything but free: the bars of your jail are invisible. The Old World Order do not seek to put us in concentration camps but in jails that we can't see because we have been so brainwashed and deceived.

David Riesman wrote in The Lonely Crowd (1950):

"Conspiracy" theories of popular culture are quite old, summed up as they are in the concept of "bread and circuses". In "The Breadline and the Movies" Thorstein Veblen presented a more sophisticated concept, namely, that the modern American masses paid the ruling class for the privilege of the very entertainments that helped to keep them under the laughing gas.
The last statement is critical: "…the modern American masses paid the ruling class for the privilege of the very entertainments that helped to keep them under the laughing gas."

To put it another way, the masses pay the Old World Order to continually sedate them with mindless junk that makes them incapable of resisting the Old World Order. This is genius. You get your victims to pay for their own enslavement. Not only do you not have to pay a fortune to subjugate your victims, they pay you. That is the world we live in now. And who are the biggest victims? Women.

In women's magazines there's never a word about science, history, economics, politics, philosophy, religion, technology. Conspiracy theories are never mentioned. Women's magazines are all about physical appearance, fashion, gossip and celebrities. Who's fat, who's thin, who's pretty, who's ugly, who's wearing what, who's up, who's down, who are the new stars, what are the old stars doing? Women's magazines are the sanctification of trivia. They are devoid of intelligent thought. Sex and the City - one of the most popular women's TV shows of recent years - is a story of career women with expensive shoes. That's it! They moan about men, but are obsessed with getting Mr Right. After decades of feminism, women are still locked in the frivolous, intellectually sterile world of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, published almost two hundred years ago.

The Old World Order have come up with the perfect formula for neutralising women: "retail therapy."  Give ordinary women a shop to visit and a credit card to brandish and they will be docile, obedient consumers, never posing any problems.

Riesman said, "The other-directed person wants to be loved rather than esteemed; he wants not to gull or impress, let alone oppress, others, but, in the current phase, to relate to them; he seeks less a snobbish status in the eyes of others than assurance of being emotionally in tune with them."

Is that not a definition of most women? Is that not a description of most office workers? Is that not a description of users of social networking sites? We live in an other-directed society, one where most people are scared to deviate from the normal, the average. "Fitting in" is imperative. Few people have the courage to be themselves.

To be interested in conspiracy theories, you have to be prepared for conflict. Them and Us. The Enemy. You have no desire to "relate" to those oppressing you. It is impossible for other-directed people - women in particular - to be attracted to conspiracy theories. They would rather go shopping.

Women are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome - complete sympathy with the people who have taken them hostage. Think how easy the world is for the OWO when they get people to actively embrace being their victims.

Do you see how difficult it is to overthrow the Old World Order? They are not crude, stupid bullies - as they are so often portrayed - but smart, sophisticated mind manipulators. And what's their most successful tactic? - supplying the people with unimportant things that they want. What woman feels oppressed when she has just bought a designer dress? Will she rise up against the Old World Order? Not in a million years.
In many ways, women are the key to overthrowing the Old World Order. Tragically, they are the least likely to care about the tyranny of the OWO. They are shopaholics and gossip addicts, and no conceivable threat to the OWO. Which is exactly as the OWO planned.
One of the Illuminati's main missions is to make women wake up.
