I’ve been in this “game” since the ’90s and went deep down the rabbit hole, including many dead ends, detours, and distractions. There is a LOT of nonsense out there in the “conspiracy world” as well, not just the MSM and official cult-ure. Many truth seekers are stuck in over-simplified black and white thinking – out of body, disassociated, glued to the computer screen. Or they claim that their “intuition” and “feelings” tell them that this person or that event is a “psy-op”, “controlled opposition,” or “shill.” Feelings and perceptions can be very deceptive, and people tend to mistake all kinds of impressions, feelings, perceptions [unconscious shadow projections], and thoughts for their “intuition” or “gut feeling.”
I’m not taking myself out of the equation. I had done it too at times, primarily when I was only focused on external information and not engaged in any sincere self-work. I still have my subjective blind spots because I’m not enlightened, i.e., awake in the word’s true meaning.
In this day and age of global upheaval, it is also important to zoom out and understand the greater cosmic forces at work in light of the evolution of consciousness: diving deeper into esoteric work, understanding occult/divine laws, esoteric evolutionary astrology, the cycles of the ages, the different levels of being within humanity, the process of soul evolution, etc. At the same time, I would never claim to have “figured it all out.” The learning never stops, and the mind can become a prison in this information war.
Many “red-pilled” folks tend to project their unconscious shadow and unresolved unconscious stuff externally. They claim to know precisely what is going on with very rigid ideas of what is “true” and what are “lies,” who are the “good guys,” and who is a “shill” and “controlled op” or “psy-op.” Sometimes things can be self-evident, but often, it is not as simple, far from it.
I have had to eat humble cake many times to realize that truth is a much more delicate process and way more nuanced, deep, subtle, and complex [going way beyond what the mind can comprehend] than these superficial labels and accusations that are thrown around by the social media conspiracy “red-pilled” community these days – especially over the past two years since the p[l]andemic started.
Moreover, seeking the truth is an internal job, first and foremost. Yet, most people are mostly externally focused with a very superficial level of information gathering, not realizing how they are getting trapped in their minds. In its essence, the matrix is a mind program working through us/you.
Don’t get me wrong; there are definitely “controlled ops,” “psy-ops” and COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Programs) in the 3D matrix, as I’ve written about many times as well [even back in the 90s]. However, these terms are highly abused these days by overly paranoid “everything-is-a-trap” fringe conspiracy folks who have not done much self-work at all to be aware of their psyche, mind, conditioning/programming, shadow, projections, and trauma responses and childhood wounds which we ALL have.
Ironically, “the matrix has them” too, as Neil Kramer once said; they are caught in the “2nd matrix,” as he coined it, prisoners of their own paranoid mind.
