Mind Control and Dissociation

Is this more rampant than we think?

Did You Know?: There are some people that don’t have an inner dialogue.

I covered the interesting difference between people who have an internal monologue – speaking inside one’s head – and those that do not. It seems as if the majority of people that don’t have the inner monologue also don’t often picture things in their head as well.

And since this is new to me and I can’t quite comprehend how one “thinks” without the use of these two abilities, it makes me wonder if our minds are more susceptible to outside forces than we thought.

Thus, the topic of mind control and dissociation was born.

And I want to make it clear, this is not a post to criticize or judge anyone based on the way their mind thinks. It’s a fascinating topic and unless one has studiously studied the brain/mind for decades, the knowledge about this is incredibly lacking. This is only a means to address this subject, and theorize on the possibilities that could arise from the mind’s differences.

With that being said, I want to bring attention to a tragic occurrence that I think is far more common than we think.

Childhood trauma.

Studies have shown that children who have suffered through abuse are more prone to developing dissociation disorders than those who have grown in a loving, caring home. Some signs and symptoms are found from the following site: What Is Dissociation? Definition, Symptoms, Causes, Treatment

Symptoms of Dissociation

Symptoms of dissociation are different depending on the type of dissociation the person experiences. Some of the symptoms of dissociation as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5) are:

  • A major inability to remember personally-relevant events in a way that can’t be accounted for by regular forgetfulness or a medical condition (amnesia)
  • Confused and dazed wandering (known as a dissociative fugue)
  • Two or more identities or personality traits within a single person
  • Transfer of behavioral control to each identity
  • Feelings that objects in the external world are changing in shape and size
  • Feeling that people are automated and inhuman

Signs of Dissociation

There are signs of dissociation in addition to the above symptoms of dissociation. Signs of dissociation include:

  • Mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts and actions
  • A sense of detachment from oneself; seeing one’s life as if it is a movie
  • An unclear sense of identity
  • Significant stress or problems in relationships, work or other important areas of your life
  • A presence of multiple people talking or living in your head, or a feeling of possession by another identity

Now something that’s been making its rounds on the internet, are the possible manipulation of people who may suffer from dissociation disorders. (And deeper theories propose that dissociation is an actual deliberate goal to impress on the victim as a means of control.)

Take the following clips, for example. These are just some clips showing some odd responses from a few individuals.

Very strange behavior from those in very high positions and well-known celebrities. One has to wonder, what is causing this? Is it simply “stress”? Fumbling over words? Seizures/epilepsy? A different medical condition? Or are there perhaps deeper, darker things going on behind the mind that we’re not quite aware of?

1. Did you catch Nancy Pelosi’s slip-up? “Ten states, as I said, on Friday, uh, started their early fr- voting, the day that we lost Ruth Bader Ginsberg.” Some people think she was about to say “fraud”. Of course, she could have been trying to say “Friday” again by accident, but who’s to really know? (Besides her handler, that is. – Just a theory… not stating it as fact.) But of course the main star of this video was her strange backtrack to greet her interviewer, again, right in the middle of her speech: “Good morning. Sunday morning.” which seemed to leave her interviewer baffled.

2. Hillary Clinton is seen at 3 different events, all displaying a different reaction to the stimuli that she’s surrounded by. The first seems to be a kind of taken-aback reaction where she wasn’t expecting a reporter at her side interrupting her mid-speech. The second shows a bewildered shock at the loud reception her and her husband are receiving. And the third is perhaps the most bizarre of all. We see an agent basically confronting what seems to be a hesitant (perhaps upset) Hillary and commanding her to “keep talking” and, almost as if threatening, says, “We’re not going anywhere.”

3. Here we see the same ‘bodyguard?’ dutifully help Hillary Clinton into a black vehicle when she allegedly faints due to “medical complications”. But I think “help” should be changed to “force”, and “medical complications” to… actually, no that’s probably right. Complications due to her mind trying to fight back from the mind control she’s under.

4. Of course, I wouldn’t want to mention Hillary Clinton without addressing her husband, Bill Clinton, and this strange display of motionlessness. Many people attribute this action (or inaction, I should say…) to hypnosis. It certainly does look like it.

5. Britney Spears is probably one of the most well-known celebrities, and also the star of huge controversies and “conspiracy theories”. – I don’t use that term lightly. There are movements to try and find out what is going on behind some of the behavior like the one presented in this video, and also from many of her instagram posts. With many people retweeting them with the hashtag #FreeBritney. Whether these ig posts are a publicity stunt to remain relevant and in the spotlight (from her and/or her handlers), or if they’re a real cry for help, remains to be seen.

6. Al Roker was caught on this tape suspiciously straightening his posture and remaining unresponsive (or perhaps receptive to commands…) due to what many people speculate as his trigger words, “Holy ghost”. The strange facial expression on his face and the way he stares into the camera with an unblinking gaze gave rise to many internet sleuths trying to find the reason for it. With a little bit of research some might come across “hypnotism” or the “mannequin challenge” that may have been initiated just to give an excuse to explain away these strange behaviors.

Along with the above examples, we also have many testimonies – these from celebrities – that talk of an alter-ego, or a different personality that takes over during certain circumstances. Now some people might chalk that up to “artistic expression” – perhaps because they don’t want to take them at their word that they literally have a different personality that takes over.

(And this isn’t even one of the “crazier conspiracies”! Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and Demonic Possession // Thoughts on Demon Knowledge)

Now whether any of these events are due to an MK Ultra program of sorts, or whether it’s due to a brain anamoly (combination of both?), the fact of the matter is that the mind is more fragile than we think.

Yet, even if mind control is running rampant all over the world, and even if our mind is susceptible to outside forces, there is still hope.

Our spiritual constitution, is stronger than we think. And it is this, which can break through these bonds of control and manipulation and ultimately give us our freedom and our mind back. But it takes others, with a loving, compassionate understanding, to help them learn how to break free from this control, and learn how to think and discern on their own.

The below video gives us a glimpse into what a mind-control victim may have suffered through:

Source: youtube | PronStarKilluminati | Cathy O’Brien: Ex-Illuminati Mind Control Victim | MK Ultra | Monarch Mind Control Exposed

(I’m actually really surprised that this video is still up on youtube, from 2013. The conference itself was made on 1996, which should give you an idea of how long this nefarious agenda has been going on behind the scenes – and still is!)

But, I have to warn the readers, not everything you see may be the truth.

In this rather long exposé, a few people are actually addressing that Mark Phillips may not be the “white knight” he is depicted in this video (which is probably why it’s still up on youtube…) and some controversy surrounding Cathy O’Brien herself. There is a whole, sordid tale within these letters, that involve the infamous David Icke, as well, so please be careful with any information you see. With the amount of deception and manipulation being pulled on the public, it truly is hard knowing who and what to believe.

Now, if you notice a recurring theme (which there are many, actually) in the above video and of other victim’s accounts, one of them is the blatant excuse that the government gives to pardon criminals, politicians, etc. “as a matter of national security”, they say.

Pardon my french, but this is b.s.

It is them, trying to disguise the fact that they are protecting criminals and illegal activity to suit their own purposes and agendas. Nothing more. “As a matter of covering our own @ss.“, is more like it.

(Usually I’m not as aggressive in my opinions – but when it comes to child abuse, I tend to get more agitated…)

Now apply these mind control techniques on, oh- I don’t know, world leaders… beloved celebrities… elected officials… mainstream media reporters… and then perhaps we can see a pattern emerging of people of the same mentality trying to dictate others on what to think, how to behave, who to love (and hate), etc., etc., etc.

We can see a cycle of abuse and coverups by the people initiating these mind control subjugations onto their victims, and since these victims are under their control, then they are thus perpetrating the same abuse upon their victims, and so on and so forth.

Sounds crazy. Sounds complicated. Sounds surreal.

But don’t tell me that satanic ritual abuse (or childhood abuse in general) isn’t a common instigator into the dissociation disorder; with the many studies that have gone in to expose it:

Evidence that Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder or MPD) is caused by Childhood Trauma

Objective Documentation of Child Abuse and Dissociation in 12 Murderers With Dissociative Identity Disorder

Stop Mind Control and Ritual Abuse Today

And don’t tell me that we don’t see an insane increase in satanic activity and propaganda all over our media and strange symbolism no matter where we turn.

In part of The Weeknd’s 2021 super bowl performance, we see a menacing, red-eyed figure descending down to the stage while gospel-like hymns are heard.

At a 2017 concert, the word “SATAN” can be seen quickly flashing on the screen in front of the audience.

Because of instant backlash, netflix immediately deleted this tweet that seemed to urge its users to “praise SATAN” while appearing to promote a LGBT movie “The Prom”.

While many thought it was to promote “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” or “Lucifer” – which, of course, both involve hailing ‘satan’ – it was more making use of the zazzgenerator.com to try and give The Prom and its other netflix material more ‘pizzazz’. And since they apparently love satan, couldn’t refrain from adding in this prompt (or taunt, depending on how you look at it).

Commentary exposing the many, many symbolism we see throughout various arenas of our life – magazines, commercials, shows, music videos, etc. Some are incredibly obvious, while others are very subtle. Some believe that the massive amount of symbols is a conditioning process to eventually control the minds of the population. (entertainment – “to keep up, maintain, to keep (someone) in a certain frame of mind”)

SYMBOLS EXPLAINED Part 4 THE BAPHOMET – A video explaining the baphomet / goathead symbol

Any information to expose the corrupt agencies perpetrating the heinous acts of mind control/abuse, etc. is very much needed. And for us everyday citizens to just turn a blind eye or a deaf ear just because we don’t like the content, or we’re denying that something nefarious is truly going on, is committing a terrible disservice and grievous disrespect to not only the individuals who have suffered through horrific abuse, but also to the rest of humanity for not being willing to address those guilty of these depraved, immoral behavior.

When we refuse to acknowledge the terrible atrocities and suffering that befall children (and adults alike), we allow the evil corruption to continue, instead of making them accountable for their actions. And we need to come to terms that, yes, there is a strange agenda to normalize satanism and several industries (entertainment, government, education, medical, media, etc.) are inundated with it. And it just may tie in to a luciferian initiative to control the world.

When we can see the agenda for what it is, and who is implementing this dangerous plan, we can be aware and build up our own mental and spiritual constitution as well as that of others, so that this “mind-control” assault will fail.

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

The Importance of Raising Vibrations

And why you should try it.

What does this mean exactly? How do we do this? Why is it so important?

When I first had my experience with vibrations (that I remember), it was when I was 15, attempting an out of body experience.

My dad had some astral projection books, out of body books, etc., and as I was flipping through them I had the mentality of, “Yeah right.” It seemed absurd to me at the time but, what did I know? I was just a young teenager without much experience in anything. Still, even though I thought it was nonsense, I felt, “Well, if it is true, I bet I can do it.”

So I attempted it that very night. These were instructions that Robert Monroe gave for anyone who wanted to try it. (This was before my research on this man and his involvement on hemi-sync and his work with the government.)

Much to my surprise, it actually worked. I was quite shocked to find that my body did indeed experience vibrations, and I was able to “get out” of my physical body. (Not very well, I should add, but it did happen with comical results.) This heralded many such experiences, some of which weren’t so pleasant. And it wasn’t until much, much later in life did I realize that this experience was something that I had done as a little kid, and simply forgot about and dismissed as just a dream.

Now, after having said that, although most of my experiences were nonchalant and some were exciting, some confusing – I must say that there were two very specific encounters with SOMEthing dark and negative.

Due to these two experiences, it has derailed me from attempting any more of these adventures.

Now, during these forays into the unknown, I was not quite so spiritual as I am today. I was led by what I call divine intervention into realizing that Love and Forgiveness are the most important factors in the universe, but at the time I did not know that.

I believe that because I was not protected by this knowledge, and because my vibrations were not at a higher level, then I was susceptible to spiritual attack. For those that don’t believe, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” – Ephesians 6:12 … I have to say, I believed just as you. Or rather, I did not believe, just as you.

These experiences proved to me otherwise.

Encounter with an Unknown

I will not relay one of the negative experiences, but one I will tell because it hits close to home with what an alleged ex-satanist claims to have done.

In this negative experience, I can’t even remember if I was attempting astral projection, or if the vibrations just came, as it sometimes happened on its own, but in this event I was woken up to vibrations and I could feel someone or something grasping my ankles (my astral ankles, as weird as that sounds) and trying to drag me out of my body (obviously, my astral body). This shocked me as I didn’t know what this force was, and it certainly didn’t seem benevolent. So I tried to hang on to my astral body as much as possible because I didn’t want to be dragged out by this entity.

Well, this was just one of two that had a hand in changing my mind about attempting to pursue the out of body aspect of things.

Fast forward a few years later, I came across a testimony by ex-satanist John Ramirez. Now, I cannot attest to the veracity of his statements, but what I can tell you is that when he relayed his testimony about how he would astral project and create chaos and put curses on those in the neighborhood, and also how he would drag people out of their physical bodies, my heart stopped because that is exactly what had happened to me.

Again, I do not know how true his account is, but those words caught my attention and made me pay attention to how susceptible I was to a “demonic attack”. Or a spiritual attack, for that matter. It makes me wonder, if my vibrations were higher at the time, would I have even experienced this violation of my astral body? Hearing John Ramirez tell it, he relates how when he would try to impose himself on believers, it just would not work. He would be rebuked and couldn’t come near them.

Spiritual Belief

Of course, now that I have fully given in to the belief of a God and Jesus Christ, I do not fear these “attacks” any more. And that brings up another point. Perhaps because of my beliefs, whenever I feel an onset of sleep paralysis or night terrors, literally all I have to do is think about Jesus, and these negative experiences dissipate. I trust in the Lord, and I fall asleep within seconds of these initial feelings.

Do you have to believe in something like a higher power in order to be in a state of higher vibration?

…Well, I can’t say that it would be the most beneficial path, but I’m also of the belief that as long as you’re seeking to have a good heart and strive to be a better person, and to try and learn to love unconditionally and be forgiving, then you are on the right path. I think all of our souls have one goal, whether we realize it or not, and while we’re all on different paths, all of these paths, eventually, lead to one destination. If you go the wrong way, you will eventually end up with a “DEAD END”, and have no choice but to either turn back, or remain where you are, which would obviously be detrimental to your soul growth.

Another main reason I feel as if raising our vibration is extremely important, is due to the experience I had a few years back while dealing with a disembodied voice.

Yes.

I know how crazy that sounds.

In this experience, a voice was testing me on who I would forgive, and who I wouldn’t forgive. Along with this voice, came the vibrations that I was already familiar with due to the out of body experiences and lucid dreams that I’ve had. Since I was familiar with these, I could automatically tell that this situation was different. It was not a dream. It was not a hypnopompic or auditory hallucination.

While this voice was testing me on who I would forgive, if I answered “yes”, the vibrations would get stronger. If I answered “no”, the vibrations would get weaker.

My last answer was a ‘no’ and with that the vibrations disappeared altogether. It wasn’t until after this “test”, that I realized that I was supposed to have answered with ALL ‘yes’. I’m going to be honest. Even today, there are some things that I do not want to forgive. But whoever or whatever this voice is, clearly wanted me to answer with all forgiving answers. No matter what. It is something that I need to come to terms with and I pray all the time to understand this phenomena.

I think it boils down to this. You cannot unconditionally love anyone or anything, unless you completely absolve them of all actions first. The road to unconditional love means to completely love them, regardless of the sins and actions they have committed. This obviously does not mean that you approve of their actions, but that you ultimately love who they are at their core and that they, just like every other being on the planet, needs love and compassion and understanding. Was it a lack of love that made them who they are and led them into a life of corruption and “evil” to begin with?

Perhaps. Perhaps there are still many things we are not aware of, but one thing that I am acutely aware of is that no problems can ever be solved by throwing more hate and anger and bitterness towards others.

Science and governmental involvement

Many people rely on science to give them all the answers. One could say that the fundamentals of “science” is a religion in and of itself. If something is not provable by science, those with a steadfast hold onto scientific proof will dismiss it as nonsense. Of course, new research and scientific findings come out every single day, and perhaps the point of metaphysical and spiritual events deliberately elude science because it first and foremost relies on personal experiences and not repetitive, quantifiable data.

Even so, science is finding out that we are all indeed made up of energy and vibrational forces that they have been able to measure. And with certain information being kept from the public, one could surmise that there is much more that has been discovered that the layman will not have heard of.

Going back to Robert Monroe’s involvement with the government, I think many people would be surprised to learn how much the “world leaders” interest in the spiritual phenomena and occult are. Not to mention the studies and how much money are involved in researching consciousness and the mind.

Some might accuse these speculations as merely conspiracy theories, but all one has to do is look at the many declassified documents and eyewitness whistleblower accounts into this involvement, as well as the government agencies themselves admitting into participating with these studies as proof that this is an ongoing pursuit.

How do you raise your vibration?

So how would one raise their vibration?

What makes you happy? What are you grateful for? Are there any negative things you’re involved with that are lowering your vibration? What can you do to stray away from that lifestyle and towards one of love and compassion?

Listening to certain music, especially ones with negative and dark lyrics, or watching certain programs/shows/movies/news, and participating in addictive behavior and/or giving in to feelings of hate, anger, jealousy, corruption, etc. will lower your vibrational state.

Conversely, spending time in nature and appreciating the people and things in your life, and having emotions of love, forgiveness, happiness, kindness, peace, gratitude – will raise your vibration and bring you closer to the state that will most benefit not only your mental well-being and physical body but your spiritual one as well.

The following link gives some helpful advice to help raise vibrations as well:

Another one I want to mention that I do every night, and is probably not for everyone but one I encourage, is pray. I pray to give thanks, I pray to receive help in becoming more loving and forgiving, I pray for others that their hearts and souls will be healed, I pray for forgiveness, I pray for everyone and everything in the world, and I pray for the world itself.

Some things that personally help me to raise my vibration are:
  • giving thanks and being grateful
  • thinking about my son
  • watching cute animal videos
  • laughing/being happy
  • being out in nature
  • praying for the good of the world
  • projecting love and kindness
  • spending time with loved ones
  • reading sweet stories
  • enjoying a good cup of coffee
  • being forgiving and compassionate

Heaven is about Good Vibrations:

Heaven is a matter of vibration and the various realms after death is based on the various levels of spiritual energy that exists. As quantum physicists state, the 10 dimensions of reality exist within the same space as our universe and are based on the varying energy levels that exist. The reason we cannot see these multi-dimensional energy levels is the same reason we cannot see radio or television waves because they exist beyond the frequency on the light spectrum that we can see. For this reason, the realms of spiritual energy that exists after death, which is the same energy levels described by quantum physicists, is based on different frequencies of vibration.

Love can be compared to heat that has vibrations that are finer that colder temperatures. The greater the love – the finer the vibration – and the closer we are to heaven. Heavier vibrations represent coldness and the heavier the vibrations the nearer we are to hell. When we manifest unconditional love, our soul vibration are so high that the only place we can fit into is heaven. People don’t go to heaven because of their good deeds, but because their soul vibration of spiritual love fits in and belongs there. After death, people gravitate into groups according to the rate of their soul’s vibration. Birds of a feather flock together.

This connection between the level of soul vibration we have in determining the level of heavenly vibration we realize after death is the same principle as putting a coin into the slot of a coin counter. The coin just naturally fits to its proper location. So it is with the soul. After death, our soul naturally fits in the level of heaven we have developed within us. In fact, while we live on earth our soul actually dwells, not only within us, but also in the spiritual realm we will find ourselves in after death.

Heaven and the Near-Death Experience (paragraphs separated for easier reading)

I know some people are on the fence about near death experiences and their authenticity, but because of the strange occurrences that I experienced, it has led me to this phenomena and aligns quite accurately to the messages that I received. So it is hard for me to just bypass this as someone just attention-seeking or as simply strange hallucinogenic visions or dreams. (That’s not to say that doesn’t happen too, just that I can understand where their belief and experiences come from.)

The bottom line is, with even science admitting that vibrational frequencies are basically what makes the world go round, we have to wonder:

Would we rather end up with the same vibrational frequencies as that of lower-based entities, feeding off of darkness, negativity, fear and corruption?

Or would we rather be in a higher state of vibration, so that we can be with those of light, warmth, loving and compassionate beings?

The two ultimately cannot co-exist in the same realm. So the choice is ours.

I’ve made my decision. And I am living it to the best of my ability.

Media Addiction – Does Media Affect Our Thoughts? pt. 3

Think you think for yourself?
Well, think again.

When I was younger, I used to think that all the people that claimed that violence on t.v., movies, music, etc. made on impression on us, were ridiculous.

I ardently believed that people were conscious enough to come to their own decisions and thought patterns, and ridiculed those that speculated otherwise.

Perhaps that was me jumping on the bandwagon of mocking the alleged “conspiracy theorists”. Calling them crazy and uninformed.

Well, who's laughing now?

(Well, I suppose it’s no laughing matter, but at least I’ve finally come to the realization that I was wrong.)

Before I delve in, what do you think? Are you here on this page because you believe the same thing? Or are you here because you think it’s a ridiculous concept like I once did?

Expanding Awareness Relations

If you’ve read my previous posts: How do we Find the Truth? and When News Media Lies, you already know about the levels of deception and manipulation that these “sources” have propagated to the population. (With the help of the CIA, I might add.)

So is it that much of a stretch to contemplate on this idea?

If that’s not enough of a reason, I will be addressing other points that might provide a little more insight into this kind of “mind control” programming.

Welcome to the 3rd part of this series “Does Media Affect Our Thoughts” – “Media Addiction”.

Slave to Social Media?

If you’ve had any foray into the social media blowout, I think most of us can admit, at some point in our life, that we have been reeled in by the “glamour” and whirlwind of a social media online presence.

I had a brief bout of this on a few media platforms. I won’t say the names of them (a couple of them were popular forums – some, not some well-known), but during that brief time even I could feel the pull of the social media attraction and allure.

And, perhaps surprisingly, I don’t have a facebook account. I refuse to get one, as a matter of fact. But I think with as many people who do have one know, the appeal of getting views and comments and likes can be quite euphoric. Just having the positive feedback can boost one’s self-esteem.

However… on the flip side, not getting any comments or views, or getting a lot of dislikes (or no likes/dislikes in general), negative feedback… can have a detrimental effect. This particular topic will be covered more later in this post when I address depression and anxiety.

But to continue with the slave-type addiction to media, what are your thoughts? Do you, personally, feel as if you’re addicted? Do you see your friends, families, classmates, etc. fallen victim to this scenario?

A common theme I see is when everyone (and I mean, absolutely everyone) in a particular area is on their phone. Perhaps you’ve seen the same situation. Unless you were eyes-deep into your phone as well.

With everyone distracted by their phones, if anything important happened around you, would you know?
Most of us own a phone, or a tablet, laptop... all of the above, even. But can we make the conscious decision to put these devices away to appreciate the world around us, and make actual personal connections?

Personal Experience

I know one that has happened to me, personally, was 3 years ago, while sitting in the DMV, with about 15 other people. I AM NOT LYING when I say that EVERY SINGLE PERSON was on their phone. It honestly felt like I was sitting in a movie and slowly coming to the realization about what a hold the media has on us. It was eerie. And it reminds me of this very profound saying:

“We have never been more connected; yet never so alone.”

Now this alone doesn’t mean we’re addicted, necessarily. Right?

You’re right. But some of these other examples are a somber look into this very real dilemma:

This site: psychologytoday.com asks some very important questions to evaluate one’s use of social media:

    • Do you spend a lot of time thinking about social media or planning to use social media?
    • Do you feel urges to use social media more and more?
    • Do you use social media to forget about personal problems?
    • Do you often try to reduce your use of social media without success?
    • Do you become restless or troubled if you are unable to use social media?
    • Do you use social media so much that it has had a negative impact on your job or studies?

If you feel as if you are having problems with being addicted to media, social or otherwise, then don’t fret. Thankfully, there are many steps you can take to reduce the pull that technology has on us. From the same site, they list several ways you can come to terms with this addiction: “Top Tips for a Digital Detox: 12 ways to help you cut down on your technology use

Here are a couple of very nice reads into a self-reflected awareness of their social media addiction, and their efforts to curtail it:

Social Media Addiction: A Personal Story – Erin C.
How Social Media Is Affecting Our Focus – Jamie Eiland

Interestingly, The Social Dilemma (Netflix film which came out just a month ago) covers this topic, which features several people that have worked (or still work) at big tech industries, such as Facebook, Google, Youtube, Pinterest, Tumbler, as well as others. Even they, the creators and designers of some of these addictive programs, are against their own creations; urging the viewer to reduce their screen time and realize that there are many ways that we are being manipulated. Many even confess that they refuse to let their children on to social media; at least until they reach an acceptable age.

Be Aware

I have to add a precaution to this film; there are many aspects to it that I agree with, however, there are also a few to me, that I view as a red flag. Namely that of when they mention “conspiracy theories” – again, casting it in an unflattering light – a very common tactic of manipulation, and a couple of situations pertaining to this. Please be very discerning about these kinds of topics. The film itself mentions fake news and how easy it is to fall for something that’s not necessarily true, thanks to all the deception and lies that are deliberately enforced to push a certain agenda/propaganda, yet seem to turn around and do the same thing. Attempting to “debunk” certain topics. Again, I ask that you be aware of any ways that you may be coerced or manipulated into believing a certain narrative.

Other than that unfortunate addition to the film, it did seem to touch on a lot of subjects that are a very real problem in our social media age. And it does raise an important subject to be discerning, because certainly, not every “conspiracy theory” is true, but there are alarmingly many that have been proven to be true.

25 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out to be True – (Another sad fascinating fact, 23 out of 25 of these “theories” involve the government (most from the US)).

Where Does the Time Go? (and the moral ethics?)

Perhaps some people still don’t think an addiction to media is that bad. Or maybe people are just making it a big deal.

Well….. take a gander at the link below (or not… it is a harsh and cruel reality check into some of the atrocities going on around us) and tell me if people are just blowing this out of proportion. These are tragic and horrific accounts of people choosing video games/media over real life people (including themselves):

15 Bizarre Deaths Caused by Video Gamestheclever.com. Some devastating accounts due to media addiction from this site (visit the link for a full list):

  • “In 2010, a South Korean couple ended up spending so much time raising their digital baby, in turn neglecting their real life baby, who ended up dying of prolonged malnutrition.”
  • “In 2007, a Chinese man engaged in an unknown online video game for three consecutive days at an internet café.” … “fixated on the computer for 72 hours straight, the man finally dropped dead out of exhaustion.”
  • “17 year old, Daniel Petric, shot his parents because they wouldn’t let him play Halo 3. He allegedly shot both of them in the head, instantly killing his mother. His father survived. – kotaku.com
  • “October 2010, Alexandra Tobias was playing Farmville … and she got so addicted that she apparently forgot that she had a three-year-old son. Her attention was taken back to reality when her son cried out of hunger, and instead of feeding her child, she responded by shaking him to death…”
  • “In the fall of 2007, according to his mother, Shawn Woolley killed himself as result of a lack of socialization and detachment from reality caused by endless hours of playing EverQuest.”

There are many more events attributed to video games, especially, but also media in general. And as you may have noticed, the articles I’m making on this topic don’t just mention “social” media, but “media” as a whole. That can range from anything as social, internet use, television, movies, video games, etc.

How many times have you caught yourself on a binge-watching marathon? Or scrolling through the internet/on facebook/youtube? How many times do you check your phone for notifications, text messages, emails, forum posts?

While all of these aren’t necessarily bad things, per se, the habitual time sink it proposes definitely is. Which is why it’s important to be aware of how much time we really are spending on these different platforms. I find myself occasionally going on binge-watches, spending way too much time on youtube (although admittedly a lot of times I’m on there for research) and checking email for communication.

The important thing is moderation. Once we’re aware of how much time we’re losing to these different arenas, the better chance we have to come back from that and consciously choose to spend time more efficiently, and essentially.

Sadly, sometimes these addictions to different media platforms disable us from focusing on real life situations: work, school, relationships, raising our own kids… As we saw with some examples above, the decision that some people have taken to choose technology over other people, is a scary and serious look into the hold that media can have over us.

Porn and Gambling Online

We’ve already covered some topics detailing the horrible situations that have erupted due to media addictions. But we haven’t even covered media addictions in conjunction with other addictions, such as porn, gambling, and shopping. (Yes, shopping.)

In this day and age, with everything so readily available to us through the internet, the instant gratification mode that many people have is more prevalent than ever. And that’s not a good thing.

Instead of us appreciating what we already have, the constant push of “more and better” things that the internet poses to us keeps us in a state of always wanting more. Many are unhappy with what they already have and instead are continually searching for ways, in their mind, to improve their quality of life. Not realizing that material items are not going to make them happy, but being there for their loved ones (and friends and strangers), will.

What kind of satisfaction do we get when we watch porn, or gamble, or buy material things? A temporary one, if that. And more often than that, if one has moral decency, guilt and shame as well.

So not only do we have the issue of spending money (and/or time) on temporary gratifications, we also have to deal with the remorse that comes after that. Now with everything, moderation is key. I’m not here to condemn anyone who chooses to do these hobbies. Although some I do feel could be eroding our conscious (and conscience) and creating a negative cycle that’s hard to get out of. But if you do feel guilt and shame, then it may be a sign to start pursuing something else.

Some helpful links that dig a little deeper into this dilemma:

So why are these hobbies so damaging to our lifestyle? Well, they’ve been known to cause, in some people: divorce, financial problems, child neglect, and crimes (sometimes even all of the above). I guess one can come to the conclusion that just about anything could result in these sad situations, and while that may be true, the focus is on this topic to show the damages it can create.

Social Anxiety / Depression

The culmination of all this evidence into media addictions has boiled down to one interesting connection: higher rate of anxiety and depression.

In every single subject covered in this series, people have experienced an increase in depression, anxiety, relationship strains, and in some tragic cases, even suicide. This has been especially true in today’s children and young teens/adults – in which media/technology started becoming a prominent part of society.

Excerpts are shown detailing just some of the psychological difficulties that have arisen due to media addictions from a few of the topics covered above:

  • “They explained BSD (buying-shopping disorder), and particularly the online form, can cause a loop of extreme cravings for buying things and satisfaction when spending money. This can then lead to a breakdown in self-control, ‘extreme distress’, other psychiatric problems, relationship difficulties and physical clutter and debt.” – dailymail.co.uk

  • “Research has shown that there is an undeniable link between social media use, negative mental health, and low self-esteem. While social media platforms have their benefits, using them too frequently can make people feel increasingly unhappy and isolated. These negative emotional reactions are not only produced due to the social pressure of sharing things with others, but also the comparison of material things and lifestyles that these sites promote.” – addictioncenter.com

  • “Research shows that 97% of Americans 12 to 17 years old play video games, and as many as 23% of gamers of all ages show signs of addictive behavior. According to the WHO, these signs include impaired control over gaming and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.” And these repercussions can be seen in a person’s personal relationships, career, schoolwork, or daily life. Gaming disorder also puts people at greater risk for other detrimental issues, including:

    • Depression
    • Anxiety
    • ADD/ADHD
    • Sleep disturbances
    • Irritability
    • Bad moods
    • Fatigue
    • Fearfulness
    • Suicidal thoughts

Recognize When to Seek Help

Unfortunately, because media plays such a huge part in today’s societal norms, (case in point – my 7 year old son had to get a gmail account for school… I, personally, was not too happy with that idea), the delicate issue of people’s personal habits is something that has been ignored for far too long.

Ultimately, this should be a collaborative effort between the tech industries and the adults in charge of themselves, and especially their children, to monitor these kinds of behaviors and work towards a common solution to educate ourselves of these addictive dangers, and become consciously aware of our choices and the decisions we make. Because we can’t rely on the tech industries (after all, it has been admitted that their job was to create these programs to be as addictive as possible), then it is up to us, individually, to make the right choice and break away from this harmful lifestyle.

If you feel as if you are suffering from anxiety, depression, frustration, anger, suicidal thoughts, or anything of the like, please seek help. There are numerous support groups and phone lines that can help assist you in addressing these issues.

Disclaimer: Expanding Awareness Relations shows these links as a resource for your perusal. I take no responsibility or credit on the ability of these sites to help or hamper one’s addictive behavior.

The FOMO (fear of missing out), “dopamine hits”, social interactions (whether it’s positive or negative), etc. can all contribute to an addictive behavior of the media. Once we can recognize it and address these factors in our lives, the better self-aware we can be and more thoughtful in our actions – leading to a healing and recovery of our mind, body, and soul; and, equally as important, our relationships.

Social media = social distancing? (no, not the coronavirus “social distancing”)

If we keep allowing the media to rule our lives, the possible end result is actually quite terrifying; a literal unplugging us from life and reality, and plugging us into a virtual reality that separates us from each other more than ever before.

With the ever-looming advent of powerful AI, is our future heading towards some kind of technological dystopia? We may laugh, now, at the “silly” prospect of having a real life “Terminator” or “Matrix” on our hands, but with the terrifying onslaught into the Internet of Things, microchipping, virtual reality agenda, it is honestly a serious proposal we must consider.

Are we okay relying even more heavily into all these tecnological advances? Or will we finally realize that a return to nature (in it’s pure, uncorrupted form), is the best way for society to move forward?

In part 4, I discuss the media experiments that have taken place; starring “us”, the unwitting user. In part 5, I cover the issue of data mining our information (and our minds).

Stay tuned. (no pun intended)

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
