Could an Illusion be SO Real – That it Tricks Our Very Senses? | Technology/Studies Shows it’s Possible

While virtual reality could be a dangerous enterprise – our own minds pose even more important concerns.

In my previous post, which described a supposedly 900 year old prophetic warning for what is to come, I mentioned that I was going to focus on a specific section from that list for this article.

I believe it’s incredibly crucial to address (as well as many of the verses that were in the alleged prophecies – even if it’s revealed to be a forgery, since many of the topics are indeed imperatively important – especially when it pertains to children), and since this particular topic has become the forefront of where our society is heading, wanted to bring awareness to it so that we can make the most prepared, informed decisions for what’s best for us and for our loved ones.

Now, while every fiber in my being wants to shake you by the shoulders and yell, “DON’T PARTAKE IN THIS!!!!”, I obviously cannot dictate what you choose to do with your life. But I will offer up some information and warnings of what this event may be leading into.

So without further adieu, the topic I will be covering today is:

24. When the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand begins
Men will know how to make mirages live
The senses will be deceived and they will believe they are touching that which is not
They will follow paths which are seen only by the eyes
And in this way dreams will be able to come alive.

But man will no longer know how to separate
That which is from that which is not
He will be lost inside false labyrinths
Those who will know how to make the mirages live
Will take advantage of the naive man by deceiving him
And a lot of men will become grovelling dogs.

Many of us have likely already heard of Mark Zuckerberg’s newest venture “Metaverse” – which is to, on one hand, replace Facebook – and perhaps attempt to re-establish his reputation after Facebook’s many legal complications – and on the other hand give the users an incredible new experience where people can play games, learn, socialize, etc. in an immersive virtual wonderworld built upon anyone’s limitless imagination, basically.

Of course, this is the “official” version. And yes, while it sounds fabulous and looks amazing, this is exactly the kind of trap that’s set to engage us in a perpetual state of false livelihoods and pointless dreams in which we abandon our natural life and sole(soul) purpose for the escape and frivolous existence of a technological world where nothing is real and nothing of true substance can be found.

Mind Games

The assault on our minds is an ever-growing pursuit by the “global elitists”. Now whether they can attain that through psychological manipulation/mass formation psychosis (the current trending topic), nanoparticles that seep through the skin and up to our neurological functions, direct gene-therapy injections through a “vaccine”, other forms of drugs/medication, implantable microchips, some form of MK-Ultra mind control, entertainment – TV, movies, music, games, etc. (“entertain” literally means to “to keep up, maintain, to keep (someone) in a certain frame of mind,“…) – the fact remains that this is an on-going effort that they have initiated through several means and constant pretenses, mostly using medical/biological/mental health developments as a reason.

While the verses mentioned above certainly do allude to the fact that it may have nothing to do with invading our mind – more that we will be tricked/deceived into believing images are real, a further section (#26) of the prophecies had this to say (after mentioning a very devastating warning of child sex abuse, slavery and trafficking):

But even the one being protected by his family
Will be in danger of having a dead mind
He will live inside games and mirages
Which will guide him because there will be no more educators
No-one will have taught him to hope and how to act.

It certainly does seem to reek of the Metaverse agenda. But add to that the statement that the child succumbs to this lifestyle/mentality because he will not be taught how to behave and respond, and that it will be the games/mirages that will inevitably guide him.

This is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT. It must be said that not only are adults also finding themselves in the trap of being allured by these technological advances (I could have been one of them since I used to find the idea of Star Trek’s Holodeck an amazing prospect and once loved it if it could be true), but parents are also allowing their children to get deeply involved in these types of systems.

Besides the fact that it’s EXCEEDINGLY DANGEROUS for children to be engaged in such online interactions, and certainly in a virtual world where they will be fully immersed and surrounded by a multitude of other users whose motives may or may not be completely innocent – is the frightening prospect of what’s possible through this holographic dreamscape.

Some women have already stated that they were sexually harassed and stalked and generally felt uncomfortable in this virtual world – which was at the time filled with more men and kids – even though access is supposedly limited to those 18 years old and up.

Woman claims she was virtually ‘groped’ in Meta’s VR metaverse

Then there are the further advancements and accompaniments that are sure to follow along to bring the users even more “reality” to the virtual reality. There have already been developments that sell full/partial body gear (jackets, suits, gloves, etc.) to let the player/user feel practically every aspect of the digital world around them.

One can only wonder what kinds of problems this will arise through physical bullying, more sexual abuse/harassment (again… I cannot stress this enough, please keep your children away from this kind of tech…) or even the severity of the game’s mechanics in conjunction with the body suit – gunshots/punches/falling from a high place/etc. While I’m sure there will be safeguards in place to prevent actual bodily harm, one can never be sure that the A.I. and/or gear won’t malfunction and actually cause grievances to the body and even to the mind.

Of course, this would only apply to those who choose to get the body gear. Or will it? Our minds are incredibly powerful tools. I remember distinctly playing a Mario game when I was little, and while playing as the flying Mario, there were instances where I could actually sense my own body floating/flying. This was without being fully immersed in a virtual world and without any body gear on. Simply by staring at a TV set and playing as the character.

Now, some may claim that they know the difference between real life and augmented reality, virtual reality, holograms, etc., etc., and they will be responsible enough to limit their exposure. So would never be “trapped” in any kind of mirage/vision. Although I could imagine some people will not be responsible with this technology and will, quite literally, live their lives through this virtual world.

And certainly there will be many who won’t ever cross the line to harass/abuse others, and will keep their children away from this technology.

Some, like myself, aren’t even interested in it and will never participate in this endeavor.

But what if you had no choice?

In section 4. Holographic images to trick/deceive of the post WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: New Toxic Vaccine, Massive Deception, “Great Reset”, Destroying Humanity…, I provided a few videos for the readers to consider how technologically advanced we are (and again, keep in mind, this is just the technology that they allowed us to see at the time…).

I believe, that through the use of satellites, drones, nanoparticles filling the sky, and the 5G towers being installed everywhere, along with other advanced technology that are kept hidden from lay peoples’ eyes, this will indeed trick people into seeing “mirages”, images that aren’t really there, but that we will fully believe are there – and, more frighteningly, will seem so real to us, that we will be able to touch and feel these images.

This will be so extensive, that everyone throughout the world may be able to see these images. We will not be given a choice to don virtual reality headsets – the digital world will be brought to us, whether we like it or not.

Another possibility could be through the use of old-fashioned holographic images, re-fashioned into an incredible collaboration that involves current technologies to bring us a new way of looking and interacting with things – real or visualized.

The following, for example, is a demonstration of what’s possible using a combination of different technologies (ultrasound/ultrasonic waves and frequencies, mirrors/holograms, sensor arrays, etc.) to create haptic feedback that not only works on real objects, but works on “cloned” objects as well. This video was created over 6 years ago and is just using a prototype… so imagine what could be accomplished since then and using a much bigger device…

But what if there’s another way to induce mirages/images, that has nothing to do with holographic tech?

Hypnotic illusions… literally

While the topic of hypnosis is regarded with a high dose of ridicule and skepticism by many people, there are on-going studies conducted by even the most “prestigious” of institutions whose researchers are positive that hypnotism is a real phenomenon to take seriously.

Professor of Psychology Stephen M. Kosslyn – “who has specialized in mental imagery and the connection between vision and the brain at Harvard since 1977, teamed up with Stanford University’s David Spiegel, a major figure in hypnosis research, five years ago at a conference for mind-body interaction. Kosslyn had no previous association with the field, but with the help of a MacArthur Foundation grant, Spiegel and Kosslyn took on the challenge of proving hypnosis’ legitimacy.”

Harvard Professor Demonstrates Hypnosis Is Real (2002)

“Now that we know which brain regions are involved, we may be able to use this knowledge to alter someone’s capacity to be hypnotized or the effectiveness of hypnosis for problems like pain control,” said the study’s senior author, David Spiegel, MD, professor and associate chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences.”

“Hypnosis is the oldest Western form of psychotherapy, but it’s been tarred with the brush of dangling watches and purple capes,” said Spiegel, who holds the Jack, Samuel and Lulu Willson Professorship in Medicine. “In fact, it’s a very powerful means of changing the way we use our minds to control perception and our bodies.”

“We’re certainly interested in the idea that you can change people’s ability to be hypnotized by stimulating specific areas of the brain,” said Spiegel.”

Study identifies brain areas altered during hypnotic trances (2016)

However, the one thing that is crucially missing is what our brain is capable of doing through suggestion only. Hence, the very real dangers of what hypnotism may achieve if we are not aware of it, and if we’re not building up our own thoughts and resistance to it.

While there have been many accounts of beneficial outcomes of hypnotism/hypnotherapy to help someone through addiction problems, repressed memories, addressing certain phobias, etc. – we must realize the other side of the coin that it can potentially be used to harm/deceive as well.

The following link, for example, highlights 10 Criminal Hypnotists – their crimes boiling down to thievery, and sexual assault.

And yes, while this is egregiously awful, what if the power of suggestion is so strong that hypnotists can compel us to see each other as enemies? What if we see our own family members as brutal bandits wielding guns/knives? What if they can convince us that we’re being invaded by a hostile alien horde – using a combination of haptic holographic images, the power of suggestion, mass formation psychosis, 5G frequencies/waves, and real aircraft/Directed Energy Weapons mixed in to cause actual damage and chaos?

Imagine how many people will succumb to this illusion/reality. With the combination of all of these techniques and technologies, it will seem very, very real.

And with the amount of people willingly being put under hypnosis, and even events that cater to this experience on a mass-scale, such as the very interesting (ominous…) Swedish Festival, scheduled for this year (2022):

“At gala screenings for three films at this year’s festival — Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Memoria starring Tilda Swinton, Shirin Neshat’s Land of Dreams with Matt Dillion and Isabella Rossellini and Christian Tafdrup’s psychological thriller Speak No Evil — a hypnotist will perform a mass hypnosis on the audience, “transforming the audience’s state of mind in accordance with the mood and theme of the film,” organizers said Tuesday.”

“According to Goteborg artistic director Jonas Holmberg, the experiment is meant to “raise questions about submission, transgression and control,”

Sweden’s Goteborg Festival to Experiment With Mass Hypnosis

one has to wonder, how many of us could have been put under the spell of hypnosis without our consent or awareness of it?

The many victims of criminal hypnotists were not aware that they were being put under a subjugation of control merely by someone else’s manipulation and suggestions. Would we be able to say, for sure, that we were never under a hypnotic trance?

Could different beats – binaural beats – for instance, reach to us in our subconcious mind and implant certain suggestions/images/memories/emotions without us realizing it?

Could a movie, commercial ads, etc. subliminally trigger something within us at a designated time, by a certain sound, a specific word, a specific image…

If we were in the audience of a “stage hypnotist” – just for the “entertainment” of it, – or, as the Swedish Festival admits – the experiment of it, could we be sure that we were not accidentally on-purpose put under to serve a specific motive at a later date?

Although many of the events and considerations proposed in this post my sound too incredulous to take seriously, there are enough testimonies, accounts, evidence, scientific research and literature, etc. that lends credibility to these theories.

We have to realize, if our own minds can play tricks on us, what could a group of highly intelligent and extremely funded organizations do to take advantage of this neural scientific frontier?

And to leave one last context, which is what technically led me to researching this topic, along with Serge Monast exposing the Blue Beam Project, I offer another portion of the young prophet Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov’s words that suddenly don’t seem too far off the mark… and shows incredibly eerie parallels to Serge Monast’s testimony (if they’re not implicitly coincided… Vyacheslav died in 1993, Serge Monast exposed the Blue Beam Project in 1994)

@2:19:25: “What did Slavochka say about the antichrist? He said, “Mommy when he comes, he will proclaim himself to be “god”.” Ultimately, he will proclaim himself “god”. People will be under extremely powerful hypnosis. Everyone will recognize his own messiah in him.

When Christians look at him, they will see Jesus Christ, Buddhists will see Buddha, Muslims will see Mohammed. Buddhists, – even though Slavochka said that this religion is from satan, – will think that something isn’t right here because Buddha did not intend to return. Buddha is not supposed to come, therefore, Buddhists will doubt. They will feel that there is something wrong.

Slavochka said, “Mommy, he is surrounded by so many demons and they don’t even hide, but people will look at them and see angels instead.” And satan himself, Slavochka said, smells so badly, he stinks, but people will not smell his stench. Everyone will see his own “god” in him.

He will seem handsome to people. Slavochka said, “Mommy, he has such a white face as if it was powdered with flour and his eyes are so red. He is leering at me. He is so frightful.”

Slavochka said that he will have extremely powerful hypnosis. People will be coming from everywhere and gathering around him. All of a sudden, they will be so eager to look at him.

He said to me, “Mommy, even you will want to see him. It will take so much effort for you not to go there. You will struggle with your desire to go there and admire this “beauty”. But you will resist this temptation. And those who will go to see him will perish.”

@2:29:14: “Slavochka said that the antichrist will show a real fire coming down from the sky. He will be moving around at a tremendous speed, therefore, he will be here and there. People will be saying, “Look, here is the Christ. Look, there the Christ is!” Moving at incredible speed, he will be everywhere almost at once.

He will indeed say to a mountain, “Stand up and move!” The hypnosis will be so powerful that people will come forward, touch the mountain, pat it and try to push it. They will feel that this is a stone mountain and it will seem real to them. But the mountain will not be there. It will be a deception.”

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.

The Other Virus: Learned Helplessness

Compliance leading to our downfall.

Reblogged from peckford42.wordpress.com

What is a culture of compliance, and ever-shifting rules, doing to us?

MAY 17, 2021|12:01 AM

PETER VAN BUREN

Why would any American allow the government to deny him a final goodbye to the person who raised him? Why would anyone allow grandma to die untouched in a hospital room without fighting back? In the post-vaccination era, why don’t people remove their masks? Learned helplessness, employed as a control tool.

Learned helplessness is well documented. It takes place when an individual believes he continuously faces a negative, uncontrollable situation and stops trying to improve his circumstances, even when he has the ability to do so. Discovering the loss of control elicits a passive reaction to a harmful situation. Psychologists call this a maladaptive response, characterized by avoidance of challenges and the collapse of problem-solving when obstacles arise. You give up trying to fight back

An example may help: You must keep up with ever-changing mask and other hygiene theater rules, many of which make no sense (mask in the gym, but not the pool; mask when going to the restaurant toilet but not at your table; NYC hotels are closed while Vegas casinos are open; Disney California closed while Disney Florida was open) and comply.

You could push back, but you have been made afraid at a core level (forget about yourself rascal, you’re going to kill grandma if you don’t do what we say) and so you just give in. Once upon a time we were told a vaccine would end it all, yet the restrictions remain largely in place. You’re left believing nothing will fix this. Helpless to resist, you comply, “out of an abundance of caution.”

American psychologists Martin Seligman and Steven Maier created the term “learned helplessness” in 1967. They were studying animal behavior by delivering electric shocks to dogs (it was a simpler time). Dogs who learned they couldn’t escape the shock simply stopped trying, even after the scientists removed a barrier and the dog could have jumped away.

Learned helplessness has three main features: a passive response to trauma, disbelief that trauma can be controlled, and stress.

Example: You are being stalked by a killer disease which often has no outward symptoms. There is nothing you can do but hide inside and buy things from Amazon. The government failed to stop the virus initially, failed to warn you, failed to supply ventilators and PPE gear, and failed to produce a vaccine quickly enough. You may die. You may kill your family members along the way. You have lost your job by government decree and are forced to survive on unemployment and the odd stimulus check—manufactured dependence. It is all very real: WebMD saw a 251 percent increase in searches for anxiety this April.

Americans, with their cult-like devotion to victimhood, are primed for learned helplessness. Your problems are because you’re a POC, or fat, or on some spectrum. You are not responsible, can’t fix something so systemic, and best do what you are told.

The way out is to allow people to make decisions and choices on their own. This therapy is used with victims of learned helplessness such as hostages. During their confinement all the important decisions of their life, and most of the minor ones, were made by their captors. Upon release, many hostages fear things as simple as a meal choice and need to be coaxed out of helplessness one micro-choice at a time.

Example: You cannot choose where to stand, so follow the marks on the floor. Ignore the research saying three feet apart is as useful or useless as six feet apart. Don’t think about why the rules are the same inside a narrow hallway and outsidein the fresh air but don’t apply at all on airplanes.

Kin to learned helplessness are enforcers. Suddenly your waitress transitions from someone serving you into someone ordering you to wear a mask, sit alone, eat outside, etc. Flight attendants morph from delivering drinks to holding the power to have security haul you to jail for unmasking when not actively eating. Companies once run by entrepreneurs are today controlled by the harassment-stalking undead from HR. We’ve become a republic of hall monitors. And there it is. The wrong people are in charge.

One of the better examples of learned helplessness is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a great book made into an impressive movie starring a lean Jack Nicholson. Nurse Ratched cows a group of mentally ill men into complete learned helplessness, encouraging them to rat each other out for small offenses, and to follow her every order no matter how absurd. The kicker comes near the end when we learn all of the men (except Nicholson) are free to leave the hospital at any time. They just…can’t.

It is amazing how fast people stepped into the Nurse Ratched role. Within moments of COVID’s arrival in the national conscience, officials like California’s Gavin Newsom, and New York’s Andrew Cuomo and Bill De Blasio raced to assume fat emergency powers. They spent not one moment assessing the impact of their decisions to lock down against the effects of the lock down. They ignored information questioning the value of lock down. 

They turned topsy-turvy the idea that in a free society the burden of proof is on those who would restrict freedom and not on those who resist such restrictions.

They were aided in manufacturing learned helplessness by the most sophisticated propaganda operation ever created. Already engorged with the coin of three years of fake news, the legacy media saw the value of a new crisis in working toward their two real goals: making as much money as possible garnering clicks, and defeating Donald Trump. Previous shows—Russiagate, with a hat tip to 9/11 when Americans demanded fewer freedoms to feel safer—illustrated the way. On a 24/7 basis Americans were injected with the message: You are helpless and Donald “COVID” Trump will kill you; your only hope is to comply fully with the people at CNN who are administering the electric shocks.

Truth is useless to propagandists, actually a threat. 

Look at what turned out to be false (in addition to Russiagate): We never ran out of ventilators or PPE or nurses or ICU beds or morgues. Masks are not needed outdoors. We did in fact develop a vaccine, several for that matter, in less than a year. Almost everyone who died was elderly or had serious comorbidities (a distinct class) but we salivated over “new case numbers” as the primary metric anyway because they went up so much faster. When people questioned the real-world view against the media portrayal, they were told about “asymptomatic COVID” or shunned as hoaxers. Everyone makes mistakes. But just as with Russiagate, all the media mistakes swung one way.

It worked. Condo boards boarded up their gyms. Restaurants forced diners to eat outside in the rain. Entire industries, such as tourism and hospitality, disappeared overnight. New groups were shoved into poverty and unemployment. Children were denied education, criminals released from jails. People were told not to hug their loved ones or celebrate birthdays or attend church. We were told to fear our neighbors as potential carriers.

Every time dissenting information popped up—Florida opening its beaches for Spring Break, for example—the media rushed in to declare everyone was going to die. Texas was declared dead, South Dakota was declared dead, and Americans believed it all even when reports of survivors started drifting out of Disney World.

Americans are not comfortable accepting that their lives being manipulated at this level, the way for example many Russians assume it to be so. We tend to dismiss such things as conspiracy theories and make an Oliver Stone joke. 

But ask yourself how many of the temporary security and surveillance measures enacted after 9/11 are still controlling our lives almost 20 years later. Is the terror threat still so real the FBI needs to monitor our social media in bulk? Was it ever?

Nothing here is to say vaccines don’t work, or are themselves dangerous. That’s another debate. 

This is about the politics of mass control. Add up the “doesn’t really make sense but we do it anyway” COVID rules and try to make sense of them. Why would otherwise smart leaders implement such rules, for example in New York’s case, purposely impoverishing a city or seeking to defund the police in the midst of triple digit rises in crime? Every time your answer is, “it just doesn’t make sense,” consider a scenario beyond coincidence where it would make sense, however out there that might be. It might be the most important thing you can do.

Then look out the window. Remember “15 days to flatten the curve?” With no voting or debate, a system based on a medical procedure capable of controlling our travel, which businesses we can visit, which hotels we can stay in, what jobswe can hold, what education we can access, at which point it is no more “voluntary” than breathing, was put into place. We no longer need to ask what is going to happen. 

Remember the real question is always why.
