Black Friday – The Pledge of Allegiance to the Matrix

Published on November 26, 2016 by   ·   1 Comment


Dylan Charles, /Waking Times

Black Friday is here, November 25th, 2016, the day after Thanksgiving. People are literally killing each other and fights are breaking out in many places, while people shop for consumer goods that can be purchased on any other day, or even online. Billions of dollars will be spent on non-edible goods today in a telling display of cultural insanity.

This is the sort of thing happening right now:

Black Friday has been pushed onto the public by retail associations with the help of corporate media, and the cultural phenomenon is spreading to many countries around the world. People go for it, they love it. They are part of something. There will be publicity and drama and intrigue. It will be on TV. The world will be watching, so get out there and be insane.

But why? Why do people behave this way?

Is it really to save money? No. Better deals can be found before and after Black Friday, this is no secret, and if money were really the issue, people would shop online to find better deals while also saving their time and gas.

Are the available goods hard to get? No. The same crap is always for sale everywhere, and we’re not talking about food here. There is no food shortage right now. None of this necessary.

Is it about enjoying a day out shopping with family? No, because after all, who likes navigating crowded parking lots, or standing in lines for hours in cold weather? Who enjoys risking exposure to mob violence, since we all know this is what happens?

It is really about getting ready for Christmas or the spirit of giving? No.

It has more to do with participation in a ritual that has been thrust upon our society as a way of advertising and normalizing the insanity of the consumer culture, and of getting us more spiritually hooked on the matrix. Of activating the mass reptilian brain. Of weaponizing the public.

Ritual Insanity, Herd Mentality and The Purge

This phenomenon has become a ‘thing’ in recent years and it’s now pushed on the public as a tradition, albeit a tradition with no roots and no meaning.

It seems more like a test or some kind of emergency broadcast system, but instead of warning us to danger, it is calling us to go berserk in an orgy of chaos. A call to purge our common senses, to lose ourselves in the herd, to indulge in a ritual for the sake of being part of something.

Participation in the Black Friday ritual is a pledge of allegiance to the Matrix, the global scheme that enslaves us with debt, misleads us with false idols, tricks us with shiny trinkets and mass-produced baubles, all in ploy to steal our energy, time and our lives.

When we opt-in and play this game we miss out on the connection to life and relationship, to spirituality and compassion, to the natural world. But most importantly we turn a blind eye to the corruption, evil and authoritarianism in our world today. We ignore the connection between these goods and the slave labor and environmental destruction required to bring them to mass market.

    Human’s heads are getting bigger while intelligence and brain networks are shrinking.

    More than 4,000 years ago, great civilizations existed around the world and the ancient inhabitants built incredible buildings and cities with great precision and beauty, often with astronomical alignments that we are only just beginning to realize.

    It’s widely believed that the human brain continues evolving to get bigger and smarter, but this is a Myth

    IQ: which is one measure of intelligence, has gone down since the Victorian era, So have reaction times.

    Exam There’s little doubt that modern technology, social media, and information bombardment are changing our brains and not for the better.

    Goldfish now have longer attention spans than the average American.

    In 2000, the average attention span was 12 seconds.

    By 2013, it dropped to 8 seconds, while goldfish are holding steady at 9 seconds!

    The Chemotherapy Drug Industry “The National Institutes of Health estimated the overall costs of cancer in 2010 at $263.8 billion”
    The Journal of the National Cancer Institute estimated in 2011 that the total cost of cancer care in the US will rise to $158 billion in 2020, a 27% increase from 2010, due only to project growth and aging of the population. A less conservative scenario put the cost at $173 billion in 2020.
    The Chemotherapy Drug Industry;
    Treating cancer is BIG business in America — in fact, it’s a $200 billion a year business. Yet 98 percent of conventional cancer treatments not only FAIL miserably, but are also almost guaranteed to make cancer patients sicker.

    “A Cult of Ignorance” by Isaac Asimov
    “There is a cult of Willful ignorance in the world, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Isaac Asimov

    Henri Bergson;
    “Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to the illusory worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss, and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experiences show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begins their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance.”

    David Lynch
    If you have a golf-ball-sized consciousness, when you read a book, you’ll have a golf-ball-sized understanding; when you look out a window, a golf-ball-sized awareness, when you wake up in the morning, a golf-ball-sized wakefulness; and as you go about your day, a golf-ball-sized inner happiness. But if you can expand that consciousness, make it grow, then when you read about that book, you’ll have more understanding; when you look out, more awareness; when you wake up, more wakefulness; as you go about your day, more inner happiness.
