Old paradigm: We live in a world of scarcity where survival favors the strongest
What is the social grid of false beliefs, what some have called “the matrix,” that is said to have been with us since ancient times and that holds us in Third Dimensionality if we cling to it?
I’d like to identify some of the beliefs and philosophies which, taken together, capture the essence of the false grid of beliefs that have kept humans in a lower-density belief and value system.
Since all these beliefs are couched in commonsensical terms so that even the least intelligent could understand and master them, I too will discuss them in commonsensical terms.
The first core belief that represents a departure from the truth of our being is the notion that each of us is a separate individual, with no common ties, origin, or essence.
There’s no sense of the soul and, because there isn’t, there’s no knowledge of the same soul being in everyone or that that soul is really the Super-Soul, which is the one nature of all.
All this knowledge is not taken up or explored.
Instead we divide ourselves into, or unite ourselves in, various ephemeral identities such as races, nations, etc., and then fight to dominate each other and avoid being dominated.
None of this reflects the eternal truth that we are one.
The second belief is in scarcity, or, as Archangel Michael has called it, lack and limitation. We believe we live in a world of fixed resources, with not enough to go around. Given that we have need of these resources and not enough exists to share equally, we choose to compete, rather than cooperate with each other for them.
In reality nature’s abundance is probably unlimited and our capacity to create is also unlimited. In higher dimensions, of course. But even here, in whatever dimension we are (probably Fourth), our powers of creation are much larger than we imagine. But this perspective convinces us that there isn’t enough to go around and sets the stage for competition progressing to warfare.
The third belief is that there are no solutions to the dilemmas the first two beliefs raise. There’s nothing that can be done to end our sense of separation from one another and there’s nothing that can be done to end the perceived scarcity of resources.
Change or reform is impossible. No matter how much things change, they remain the same. There’s no way out. These are the cliched sayings we have that reflect and invigorate our bondage to this perspective of no solutions.
A fourth point of view is the belief that we have only one body and one lifetime to live. Once we die, that’s the end of it. There’s no escaping death and taxes. Death is final. Therefore we may as well live it up in this moment because tomorrow we die. These are the beliefs that go along with and support this materialist perspective.
A fifth point of view is that nature is chaotic. There’s no order in nature. Mother Nature is unpredictable. There’s no higher power or universal laws in actuality. The universe moves randomly. Unexpected catastrophes happen every day somewhere in the world and cannot be prevented. So get over it.
When people assimilate and integrate these beliefs and form their words and actions on the basis of them, we call this conditioning. Being conditioned into accepting these five beliefs, we’re open to the social philosophies which also arose on the foundation of these beliefs.
These social philosophies create a common cultural lifestyle in many parts of the world, where institutions of conditioning pass the culture along, and common boundaries are enforced beyond which a person cannot go without being judged to have “crossed the line” – to exist in a kind of apostasy – and be worthy of ostracism.
The world is kept in an almost-constant state of war
The first social philosophy is an extension into all areas of life of what is usually called the Self-Serving Bias. It’s based on the belief that one’s own interests are supreme and in many instances all that count. The individual is expected to “look out for #1,” to argue their own self-interest, and to do only that which serves them in some tangible way.
When discussing events, a person acting self-servingly will maximize their own victories, successes, and gains. They’ll tend to minimize their own defeats, failures, and losses.
Conversely, when discussing the role of others, they’ll tend to minimize the other’s victories, successes, and gains and maximize their defeats, failures, and losses.
Viewed from another perspective, when discussing a successful action, they usually attribute success to their own input; when discussing a failed action, they usually ascribe failure to the input of someone else. Acting these ways is acting self-servingly.
The second social philosophy that arose out of this mix of beliefs is called empirical materialism. Empirical materialism is actually a view of nature, reality, physics, etc. As such it holds that only that which is tangible, detectable, or measurable is deemed to be real. Anything beyond the reach of the physical senses is not deemed to be real.
But when applied to social realities, it holds that higher-dimensional beings are not real, including archangels and galactics. It holds that invisible spacecraft are not real; life after death does not exist; therefore multiple incarnations could not exist as well, etc.
Everything associated with Ascension and Disclosure, everything introducing it, moving it along, and bringing it to a successful conclusion is deemed not to exist. No higher view of life than what can be seen and touched is possible. What you see is what you get, literally.
The third social philosophy to arise out of this mix of beliefs is usually called Social Darwinism. It’s the belief that life is a struggle for survival in which only the strongest survive.
It’s a view that favors the elites of the world, the Illuminati, the military-industrial complex, the financial oligarchy, and so on.
Just as nature is red in tooth and claw, so is business and industry a jungle in which every one else is looking to eat our lunch. We’re justified in nuking the competition, making them suffer, bringing them to their knees, and so on.
This view has led to theories of racial supremacy, the eugenic “cleansing” of populations such as in the Holocaust or the massacre of Armenians, the creation of a growing economic underclass, the dropping of all social services and benefits plans, the rape of resources, the extinction of whole species of animals, etc.
It’s the perfect reflection of the first set of beliefs, the perfect rendering of them into a comprehensive social philosophy based on scarcity, win/lose, zero-sum solutions, and so on.
This is a recipe for constant warfare, within and without, continually experiencing and expanding deprivation somewhere, creating endless residue which leaves relations and situations festering down through the ages in quarrels without resolution. There is no resolution because everything about this philosophy is in fact designed to propagate conflict – in fact, for the elitist groups to divide the people and conquer them.
This is the matrix that supports unworkability and leads to eventual dissolution and disintegration of the social bonds that allow people to live together in harmony and cooperation. It’s a recipe for a world that doesn’t work.
This set of beliefs is now passing from the scene. We can well afford to wave it goodbye and thank it for all it taught us about what doesn’t work.
We now know what we don’t want. The search now becomes about discovering what it is that we as a world do want.
What I just described was the world’s consensus on the shape of the Old Earth. What’s its consensus on the shape of the New?
