Why are People so Obedient? – Compliance and Tyranny

Academy of Ideas

“And the word “courage” should be reserved to characterize the man or woman who leaves the infantile sanctuary of the mass mind.”Sam Keen, Fire in the Belly

In the privacy of our minds many of us disagree with the ideologies, political agendas, and government mandates of our day, yet in public we comply. We do what we are told, say what is politically correct, and justify our hypocrisy by telling ourselves that we are powerless to change society, and so we might as well blend in with the crowd. In this video, we explain why publicly conforming to what we privately disagree with makes us complicit in tyranny, and why each of us has far more power to influence society than we have been led to believe.

In the 1950s, the social psychologist Solomon Asch conducted an experiment which demonstrated the degree to which individuals will reject what they think is true in order to conform to the majority. In the experiment, Asch showed a test subject two cards. On the first card was a single line, and on the second card were three lines, A, B, and C, with only line C being the same length as the line on the first card. Asch instructed the test subject to state which line on the second card was the same length as the line on the first card. However, before the test subject gave an answer, they witnessed 7 confederates – or individuals who were in on the experiment – state that line B was the same length as the line on the first card. Rather than state the obvious truth, the test subjects gave the same wrong answer as the group 37% of the time, and of the 123 test subjects who took part in this experiment, two thirds went along with the group at least once. Asch’s experiment confirms what philosophers have been reiterating for thousands of years: for most human beings conforming to what others say and do – no matter how objectively false or absurd – takes precedence over adapting to reality and discovering the truth.

In reflecting on Asch’s experiment, the psychologist Todd Rose explains:

“…we care about being in the numerical majority even when we don’t necessarily care about the group and even when the group opinion is merely an illusion. Acting on instinct, in social situations our brains don’t actually bother to make the distinction between appearance and reality…Even in the absence of intentional pressure or incentives, we like to go along with what we think is the consensus because, quite simply, we’re biologically wired to do so.”

(Todd Rose, Collective Illusions)

Our inclination to go along with what we think is the consensus makes us vulnerable to propaganda and easily manipulated. For one of the primary ways that governments, corporations, and global institutions influence public opinion and shape mass behavior is by manufacturing illusions of consensus.

Virus of the Mind: The New Science of the Meme

Virus of the Mind is the first popular book devoted to the science of memetics, a controversial new field that transcends psychology, biology, anthropology, and cognitive science.

Memetics is the science of memes, the invisible but very real DNA of human society. In Virus of the Mind, Richard Brodie carefully builds on the work of scientists Richard Dawkins, Douglas Hofstadter, Daniel Dennett, and others who have become fascinated with memes and their potential impact on our lives. But Richard goes beyond science and dives into the meat of the issue: is the emergence of this new science going to have an impact on our lives like the emergence of atomic physics did in the Cold War? He would say the impact will be at least as great. 

While atomic bombs affect everybody’s life, viruses of the mind touch lives in a more personal and more pernicious way. Mind viruses have already infected governments, educational systems, and inner cities, leading to some of the most pervasive and troublesome problems of society today: youth gangs, the welfare cycle, the deterioration of the public schools, and ever-growing government bureaucracy. 

Viruses of the mind are not a future worry: they are here with us now and are evolving to become better and better at their job of infecting us. The recent explosion of mass media and the information superhighway has made the earth a prime breeding ground for viruses of the mind. Will there be a mental plague? Will only some of us survive with our free will intact? Richard Brodie weaves together science, ethics, and current events as he raises these and other very disturbing questions about memes.

Discernment in Truth-Seeking

4 Key Steps of Discernment – Advanced Truth-Seeking Tools

(Justin Deschamps) We’ve all heard how important discernment is. In an age of deception, seeking the truth with wisdom is essential—it’s a survival skill. The pros use established methods of discerning that we would greatly benefit from understanding, marrying logic with intuition to form a coherent toolset for meeting the challenges of belief that life has to offer. I’ll show you 4 key steps that are extremely effective when it comes to discerning a claim, belief, or experience. We’ll also discuss some pitfalls to avoid.

What Discernment Is Not

Before we talk about what discernment is, we should discuss some misconceptions.

Discernment isn’t about confirming something you hope or want to be true. And it’s not about making you feel better about what you already believe.

Discernment requires honest truth-seeking. You have to want to know the truth, even if it means letting go of a belief you’ve had for a long time.

Be willing to be wrong, so you can learn how to be right.

Secondly, discernment is more about the process than the result.

I know we want a definitive answer, “yes this claim is true, or no it is not.” But rarely does a discernment process give us such clear results. Instead, discernment is more about using a personal investigation process that first and foremost gives you personal knowledge and understanding—you actually learn something that expands your compliment of truth.

Getting to the answer of true or false shouldn’t be your focus, that’s more a side effect of honest and complete investigation.

If you find yourself leaning toward an answer but you don’t understand why it’s true, then you’ve missed out on what discernment should provide you, which is understanding. If you seek for understanding, instead of an answer, then a conclusion related to the question of “is this true or false?” naturally presents itself.

What is Discernment?

Discernment is defined as the act of judging well—but what are we judging?

No matter what it is you’re trying to discern, the same basic factors are at play: a claim, reality, and comparison.

Whether you’re trying to see if someone told you the truth, attempting to determine if a personal experience and resulting meanings are accurate, or you’re delving deep into highly abstract concepts like the ultimate nature and purpose of existence, discernment is one of the tools you’ll use.

Why is it important?

Because true knowledge is the master key to unlocking all our potentials—the ultimate problem solver is a mind guided by the truth. We need true knowledge to do things correctly in the world. To play music properly, you need wisdom, the accumulation of true musical knowledge. To run a successful business, you need true knowledge of the business. The more true knowledge you accumulate, the more you can understand the past, master the present, and work to realize a self-directed satisfying future.

Role of Consciousness

Consciousness is the foundation for all subjective (personal) experience. The mind is the tool we use to gather data about our experience, whether internal feelings, insights, and intuitions or external observations and sensations. The body provides the setting for experiencing what the mind records, which includes feelings as well as intellectual data points or nuggets of information.

Stated another way, the mind is the tool we use to recognize patterns—patterns recorded in the mind are representations of reality, not reality itself.

Consciousness is the dynamic exploration and experience of patterns recorded by the mind. Emotions are the overall holistic impression we feel in response to what is recorded in our mind, polarized in either a negative or positive expression dependent on our values, desires, and pre-existing knowledge. All these factors work together giving us what we experience every day.

Consciousness is the laboratory where we conduct research and investigation to determine if a claim is true or not.

Book The Man Who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe — Walter Russell

The Territory and Our Map of Knowledge

Your mind as the ultimate recording device. Even though you are only consciously aware of a small fraction of what’s happening at any given moment, your subconscious records everything.

The mind is essentially a map maker, a cartographer. It takes all the pieces of your experience—like the chair your sitting in right now or the time of day based on ambient light—and records each element as a unique data point, which is a symbol on your map of knowledge.

The thing you observe is the territory (raw or primary reality) while your mind records these observations as thought forms, ideas, or memories—maps of knowledge.

Psychologically, you don’t actually interact directly with the world—there’s too much information buzzing around for you to do that. Instead, your mind creates maps of knowledge or a kind of biological virtual reality environment where the individual components of experience can be “seen” in the mind’s eye—decisions are made from there. In this sense, it’s as if the part of us that makes choices, exercises free will, is hovering over a desk with maps on it. This is very similar to the Pixar film Inside Out.

The right brain works to harmonize or make a single picture of what you experience at any given moment, hence it plays a role in generating emotional charge. The left brain works to break up your experience into threads.

For example, imagine yourself watching a sunset overlooking a mountain valley, filled with streams, grass, trees, singing birds, buzzing bees, and wildlife. Your emotional or right brain aspect of consciousness sees the whole picture, a singular experience. And it’s the intellectual and left brain aspect that sees each of these things in the territory as separate discrete objects.

The only reason you can remember a single element of an experience is because the intellectual pattern recognition aspect of your mind identifies things abstractly. That is, a single tree in a beautiful sunset scene is abstract or exists as a thought or idea but not in physical reality because the tree and the landscape can’t really be separated from each other. It’s only in our consciousness, in our minds, that we can separate the tree from the ground from which it springs forth.

It’s this left brain aspect that we use the most when discerning information from an intellectual perspective.

Key Point: All discernment works by comparing a map of knowledge to reality in some way. A claim, belief or theory, is itself a map of knowledge, whether it’s a personal claim you just intuited or deduced, or a claim coming from someone else, like a friend, a news agency, a scientific organization, or a government.

Step 1: Absorbing the Claim (Making A Personal Copy)

The first thing we need to do is record what a claim is saying in our own minds.

This can sometimes be the hardest step because we can be tempted to jump the gun, trying to get to the end before we’ve even taken stock of what’s going on. We have to absorb the claim accurately and completely. We can’t pick and choose things about the claim we like or don’t like—that comes later—we have to take it as is, no matter how much it might not resonate with our personal sensibilities. Exercising emotional detachment and clarity of mind helps here.

We have properly seen a claim and internalized it—we have to make an accurate copy of the map for ourselves. Once we have our own personal copy now we can proceed with the discernment process.

For example, if a friend runs up to you and says: “Oh my God! I was just teleported to Venus by a group of highly advanced extraterrestrials!” we need to sit down and carefully review as much of this story as possible so we can clearly comprehend what our friend is saying they experienced. If you hear “extraterrestrials” and immediately dismiss the whole claim as bogus, you’ve skipped the first step; dismissal without investigation is prejudice based on personal incredulity, not true discernment.

You need to know the claim well enough to recount it accurately. This is critically important.

Avoid This: A Straw Man fallacy is when you improperly reconstruct a claim in your mind. If your friend said they were taken to Venus, but you thought they said Mars, you misunderstood their claim, you created a “straw man.” It’s easy to make this mistake. This is why being patient, humble, and open-minded is so important, we have to be willing to entertain things that might not feel true so we can form an accurate picture. Most of the problems people encounter with discernment are due to misconception or not properly reproducing a claim in their own mind. Don’t rush this step, it takes time and dedication, you need to be able to recognize when you’ve made a mistake and go back to fix it.

Sometimes our instincts flare up and try to convince us that we can skip ahead. “The mainstream media are liars! I don’t have to understand what they’re saying to know it’s a lie!” This is not true discernment. Liars sometimes tell the truth.

If we only focus on a partial picture, it completely changes the meaning of what someone is saying or claiming…

Focusing on the partial image in the above photo demonstrates how easily incomplete concepts distort interpretation, and therefore, the meaning of what it is we’re trying to discern.

Types of Claims

Since there are a great many claims we could itemize, we’ll focus instead on an analogy that sums them all up.

Think of a claim like a story in a book. You can’t really understand the story unless you’ve read it carefully. This means it takes time, persistence and dedication. If you skip around while reading, if you’re mind wonders if you don’t like what it has to say and avoid a section, you’re not getting a complete picture of the story, which means your opinion about it won’t be very accurate.

Step 2: Understanding the Claim

After we’ve absorbed the claim, creating an accurate copy in our minds, now we have to make sure we understand each element completely.

We need the separating power of the left brain to slice the claim up into chunks we can use during the understanding and research portion of discernment.

Grab a pen and paper. Write down the claim itemizing all the factors, be detailed, be specific, make sure you’re weaving all the elements together properly—just like recounting a story. Of course, you don’t need to actually write this out, but it is very helpful to do so. Writing allows us to dissociate from an experience, which helps us gain clarity on the individual threads that make up a claim.

Understanding the claim involves just that—we need to look at what the claim says and see if we can comprehend each element properly. If we don’t understand an element of a claim, we have to take extra time to research that so that when we begin comparing the claim to reality, we can interpret things correctly.

For example, if a newscaster says that a fire raged in a downtown apartment in New York City—do we know what each of those elements are? Do we know where New York City is? Do we know what an apartment fire is? This might seem silly for this example but making sure we understand each component of a claim is extremely important. If we don’t know what fire is, how can we possibly discern if an apartment really burned?

Scope and Context

A claim, just like a story, has certain components we need to understand.

There’s a spatial location (a place), a temporal location (a time), and things interacting with each other. The scope is the subject matter, what happened. The context is where and when.

Sometimes the scope is divorced from time and space, like discerning the question: “Are human beings inherently good or evil?” This type of claim is abstract, a meta-claim about the nature of reality itself, which can still be discerned, but requires great skills in abstract thinking. The more discernment you practice and knowledge you gain the easier it is to discern abstractions.

For example, if someone claimed at 11:34 pm in downtown L.A. they saw a bigfoot buying a six pack of beer at a 7 Eleven, we need to understand where this happened, when it happened, and what occurred so we can investigate properly. Perhaps the store had a camera rolling during the event, but if we’re looking at 7 Elevens in Pittsburg, clearly, we’re not going to get very far in discerning the claim.

Scope and context are fairly easy when we’re dealing with real-world events. But it’s harder to pin down when we’re discussing abstractions, like whether or not the bigfoot had the right to pay for the six-pack with riverstones—the money bigfoots use. The currency question opens up a whole other venue of scope and context examination—what is the lawful basis of the riverstone currency? Does the Sasquatch nation that uses riverstones have a treaty with the USA to use this in a foreign jurisdiction? It’s a silly example (no, there really isn’t a riverstone bigfoot currency) but it drives in the point that the more abstract the claim we’re trying to discern, the more research and understanding we need regarding the scope and context.

Key Point: Ideally, you should understand every element of a claim completely. If it relates to the rate at which ionized water vapor moves through a storm cell, and you don’t know anything about these things, you should spend some time learning about them. This means that the more knowledge you have about a great many things the more accurately you can understand a claim and thus, you’ll be better at discernment in general.

Step 3: Comparison (Research) of The Claim

Once we’ve created an accurate copy of a claim and taken the time to understand each element as much as reasonably possible, now we can actually do the comparison and research work.

Remember, all discernment is the act of taking a representation of reality (a claim) and comparing it to reality itself—we’re comparing a map of knowledge to the territory.

When the claim is less abstract and the territory is available to us, this is often a very easy step.

For example, if your boss runs into your office at work and says “It’s raining toads outside!” all you need to do is walk over to a window to see if it’s actually happening. Toads raining from the sky is the scope, the context is the current time and present location. You understand what a toad is, what rain is, and that this miraculous event is transpiring right now outside your office. As it turns out, your boss was still a little high from an ayahuasca journey the night before, and it isn’t actually raining toads outside.

The act of looking is the comparison moment. It’s also the research moment.

Discernment is an internal process of making a copy of a claim and then an externalprocess of investigation and research. If the claim isn’t something we can directly observe ourselves, if it is non-concurrent, we have to rely more on research and external data sources than our personal experience.

Non-Concurrency Discernment

When a claim is concurrent with your actual location in space and time—when you’re physically capable of observing the phenomenon a claim describes—it’s pretty easy to compare it to reality to see if it is true.

But what if the claim discusses a past event, like how many soldiers died at the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War?

Even if you understand the claim, you can’t just pop into a time machine to observe the battle directly. You need to compare aspects of the claim to other bodies of knowledge to get an assessment of how likely it is to true, based on available data.

You might decide to go to Gettysburg with an excavation team, dig up a plot, and see how much evidence you find. You might decide to go to a Civil War expert and ask them for their opinion, along with any evidence they can provide you to substantiate or support this opinion. All this data will help you evaluate if the claim is valid based on certain lines of inquiry. But since we can’t know directly via first-hand experience how many soldiers actually died, we need to rely on probability measures instead.

Key Point: When we can’t directly observe the territory or the phenomenon a claim describes, we can’t produce a definitive answer. We have to rely on likelihoods instead. No matter how much you might feel like a claim is accurate, proper discernment never assumes a definitive answer. If you try to force an answer, you’ll end up blinding yourself to greater truth beyond the limited scope of that answer. For example, it might feel to you like your friend just doesn’t like you anymore because they stopped calling you, but unless you courageously ask them what’s going on, you won’t know for sure—they might have lost service on their phone.

Possibility and Probability 

Possibility says if something could happen. Generally speaking, almost any claim you can think of could be true—it’s possible. But how likely is it? That’s where probability comes in.

Using the example above, if the number of soldiers that died at the Battle of Gettysburg was claimed to be 300 million—far more than the number of soldiers that fought in the entire Civil War—then while it’s possible the claim could be true (because we can’t know directly via firsthand knowledge), it’s highly improbable using a historical assessment because the total population of the USA during the Civil War was only 31 million people. By researching aspects of the claim within existing bodies of knowledge, which could include personal investigation, we can come up with an assessment of how probable or likely an aspect of the claim is, based on a specific perspective or dimension of analysis. In this case, the data about population suggests the claim is invalid but this is only one viewpoint. In most cases, assessing how likely a possibility is of being true is the primary method of assessing a claim since only some claims can be directly observed.

This is why understanding the claim is so important. If we don’t understand what a component of a claim means, in this case, what a Civil War soldier is, we don’t know where to look for evidence. This is true for any claim.

Proper understanding leads to proper inquiry.

We have to be OK with uncertainty—we have to keep an open mind.

Just because a historical assessment suggests an aspect of the claim might be invalid doesn’t mean it actually is. Thus, discernment is much like juggling, we spend time gathering data that gives us different inferences about certain probabilities. During the final step, we consider all the probabilities, weigh them, and make a tentative conclusion.

Key Point: Multidimensional thinking is extremely useful—we have to avoid dualistic black and white mindsets. Discernment rarely gives us clear answers of true or false. Discernment often gives us a host of possibilities that could be true, based on some body of evidence, assessed as a probability of likelihood via supportive evidence gathered during research.

Consider the idea of a spherical earth. To most people, the earth appears flat. Go outside, look around, it looks flat—we can’t perceive the curvature of the earth with the naked eye from the ground. Several hundred years ago, the Roman Catholic Church declared the earth was flat and that claim seemed true to almost everyone. And since no one could actually lift off the ground and see the roundness of the earth directly, such believers in flat earth committed a discernment fallacy based on a partial perspective—they failed to comprehend the limits of their knowledge! Thus, when you can’t know with verifiable certainty if something is true or false, you have to accept probability in its place.

Step 4: Discernment of The Claim

This is the part we all want to get to. Is a claim true or false?!

We’ve got a clear picture of the claim, we understand its parts, and we conducted research that provided probabilities about likely each element is of being true. Now we assess each of those probabilities together (right brain thinking) and come up with a conclusion that reflects our research.

For example, if we’re trying to discern if the weather prediction for tomorrow will be accurate, based on the accuracy of past weather reports on the local news, we might tabulate 6 months’ worth of predictions. If the predictions turned out to be accurate 70% of the time, we can make a substantive guess, a tentative conclusion, that the weather report for tomorrow is probably going to be accurate.

But what if we have an intuition that conflicts with our logical research? No problem! The beauty of consciousness is that we can hold multiple conclusions at once. But, eventually, we have to make a choice to act in the world—more on this later.

The Uncertainty Problem

The pros of discernment, epistemologists, have been grappling with the uncertainty problem for almost all of human history. How can you know for sure that you’re really reading these words right now? How can you know for sure that you’re not a brain in a jar somewhere, hooked up to a supercomputer projecting a Matrix-like reality into your synapses? Granted this is a pretty extreme level of skepticism, but it highlights a very important point: we have to comprehend the limits of our knowledge. 

You might want something to be true, because it came from a trustworthy source, or your research seemed really good, but the truth is we aren’t absolutely certain because our knowledge is limited. Don’t make the mistake of thinking your process is perfect and your conclusions are absolutely certain.

Book How Do We Know?: An Introduction to Epistemology

Strategic Discernment: The Judgement Call

The bottom line is, we could investigate a claim for all time, especially if it’s rather hard to pin down. And to be sure, the search for truth never really ends, but we have formed a conclusion as a placeholder in the process.

For example, if you’re in a restaurant and a waiter comes running out of the kitchen screaming “they poisoned all the food!” you might not have the time to gather samples, take them to a toxicology lab, and assess each dish for possible contamination. You need to be strategic, assessing what the risks of the claim are as it relates to your values and time available to investigate—hence understanding the claim is so important. Clearly, since you value your life over a tasty meal, you’ll probably decide to go to another restaurant.

Making a judgment call about a claim involves taking stock of all the research and comparison work you did to come up with a tentative answer of true or false—an educated guess.

Do you really know if that bigfoot went into a 7 Eleven in downtown L.A.? If you saw CCTV footage, you could say “yes it’s probably true” but even here you’d have to entertain the possibility that the film could have been tampered with. Hence, your best guess could still be wrong and this is why staying open is essential.

Operational Conclusions and Choice Point

An operational conclusion is when we judge something as either true or false, acting as if our discernment process was accurate. When you decided to leave the restaurant because the waiter screamed all the food was poisoned, you acted on an operational conclusion, your best guess at the time.

Recalling the map and territory analogy, you have to eventually stop making your map and actually get out into the territory to do something.

The choice point comes in when we can’t research anymore and need to act on what we do know. This is actually another form of investigation because action based on a conclusion produces information that we can use to understand how correct we were. In epistemology, this would be a pragmatic assessment. If your conclusion is right, you should be able to direct your behavior in accordance with it to produce expected outcomes—pragmatism. For example, we can’t prove with objective evidence that free will exists, but acting like it does is extremely useful.

Book Writing Down Your Soul: How to Activate and Listen to the Extraordinary Voice Within

We’re done!

At this point, we’ve gone through the 4 steps of discernment. With these tools in hand, time, and dedication, you can begin becoming a master at discernment. The more you practice it the better you’ll get.

Exploration of Possibilities and Multiple Conclusions

It’s a common misconception to think that we can’t explore a claim for what it might mean unless we know for sure it’s true. Or that we can’t think about many different possible conclusions at once.

But this isn’t really the case. All contemplation expands the mind’s capacity to recognize patterns, which is an essential aspect of developing knowledge. We can learn even by exploring clearly false and fictional ideas. Consider a myth or fable. The events aren’t real, the characters are made up, but the story tells us something about life itself, and with the power of our philosophic mind, we can gain true insights that improve our knowledge.

Discernment Limitations

Discernment gives us an assessment of how likely something is to be true.

Discernment doesn’t tell us what something means nor does it tell us if a meaning, even if coming from a false claim, is valuable. These are questions only philosophy can answer.

Life requires both truth and value arguments. A truth argument assert something could be true, but it doesn’t say what value this truth might have to us.

Emotional Discernment

Discernment is a lot of work. It takes time, focus, proper interpretation, willingness to learn new things and be wrong about our first impressions, to formulate progressively accurate judgments. Sometimes, we don’t have time to do this. Sometimes the claim is so abstract, so far removed from what we can investigate, we have to rely more on intuition and feeling.

Emotional discernment is something a great many people employ. It’s built-in to animal level thinking (emotions) and cognition, passed down to us from our animal ancestors. Intellectual discernment only emerges as we begin to gain mastery of the logical mind. Emotional information when combined with logic and reason, evolve beyond the mere animal to the human level.

Emotional discernment is the act of using emotional resonance to get a quick assessment of how true a claim is based on feeling. These feelings themselves come from several sources.

Source 1: The unconscious mind stores all experience. The subconscious mind interacts with the conscious mind to create emotions via the interplay of present and past memories. If we are considering a claim, like toads raining from the sky, and we’ve never seen that before, the claim will feel untrue. In this case, if a claim doesn’t feel true it’s because we don’t have any pre-existing data (memories) that match the current experience, hence it doesn’t resonate.

Source 2: Another aspect of emotional resonance is more akin to extrasensory perception. Our bodies and minds are connected directly to flowing streams of energy and information buzzing all around us via electromagnetic resonance. Remote Viewers, for example, can tap into this field of information by stilling their mind and using a coordinate to focus on an anchor in consciousness to evaluate a body of information they can’t access directly with their physical senses. Extrasensory information gathering is very real and has been used by the DIA and CIA. Yet, it requires advanced levels of mental discipline to form accurate pictures using these methods. Occasionally, almost everyone has an insight or intuition that turned out to be true, but you wouldn’t know it unless you compare that insight with reality. This is why both emotional and logical processes used together gives us the best results.

Limitations to Emotional Resonance

Emotional resonance can sometimes be justified as a replacement for the more intellectual process outlined above. But the problem with this is that you don’t have conscious knowledge of how and why the claim resonates—it either does or it doesn’t—e.g. the black box problem in psychology. Understanding requires more than just believing something blindly based on feeling. To be sure, emotional discernment is useful as a guide, but it doesn’t impart intrinsic understanding.

The other limitation is that you can’t share your emotional resonance with others. Your intuition might be right all the time, but other people have to take your word for it. You can’t transfer this data to another person telepathically—at least not yet. It’s like having a book in a unique language only you can read, no one else can read the pages for themselves to see what the story is about.

Given these limitations to emotional discernment, it’s important to use this capacity in tandem or partnership with the intellectual process.

Some of the most accomplished scientists and inventors of the modern age spoke highly of this combined process. Nikola Tesla used his intuition and careful logical investigations to produce some of his most fantastic inventions and discoveries of the modern age. By using both, you can guide yourself into avenues of research and investigation while carefully assessing the fruit of such inquiry with the logical mind.

Final Thoughts

We could talk a lot more about discernment, like how we assess abstract claims such as spiritual concepts. But for now, these tools are a great start.

We need accurate maps of knowledge to navigate the unknowns of the world carefully. The better we can do this, the more likely we are to live productive fulfilling lives.

Discernment is a science and an art. We use the science of logic and reason to gather accurate data and consider probabilities while using intuition and our creative aspects to form operational conclusions to take actions in the world.

The challenge with all discernment is to avoid personal dogma—that our conclusions must be true and shouldn’t be questioned.

Discernment never provides absolutely certain answers—for that requires absolute knowledge and awareness.

Exercising discernment properly teaches us humility because we become increasingly aware of how little we truly know with concrete certainty. It also teaches us to be more careful with others so that we understand what they are saying, instead of jumping to conclusions about what we think they said.

And as one begins to explore the grand mysteries of existence, the need for wise discernment becomes ever increasing. With this, we can open the cup of mind so that the whole of the infinite truth can flow forever in.

Secret societies: Harmless members-only clubs or dire threats to democracy?

A curious feature of our modern times is the number of secret societies operating in our midst, setting the global agenda behind closed doors

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.” (John F. Kennedy, April 27, 1961)

Long before the fiction writer Dan Brown arrived on the literary scene with his stories of esoterica, people have been intrigued with the idea of secret societies working in the shadows, carrying out evil plots against them. On this score, it would be hard to beat the Freemasons.

Here is a group of characters that has piqued the imaginations of men throughout the centuries. Back in 1798, John Robison, a professor of Natural Philosophy, and Secretary to the Royal Society of Edinburgh, published a book that made a big splash throughout Europe. The publication carried the lengthy title, ‘Proofs of a Conspiracy against All the Religions and Governments of Europe, Carried on in the Secret Meetings of Freemasons, Illuminati and Reading Societies.’ Had John Robison attempted to publish such a book in our day, he would have been quickly written off as a conspiracy theorist nut job along the lines of Alex Jones. But in 1798, the book was taken quite seriously.

Robison, himself a Mason, attempted to prove that not only the French Revolution, but many other historic events of the day were the result of this secret fraternity’s machinations.

“I have seen this Association exerting itself zealously and systematically, till it has become almost irresistible: And I have seen that the most active leaders in the French Revolution were members of this Association, and conducted their first movements according to its principles, and by means of its instructions and assistance, the formerly requested and obtained. And lastly, I have seen that this Association still exists, still works in secret, and that not only several appearances among ourselves show that its emissaries are endeavoring to propagate their detestable doctrines among us…” 

Aside from the question of whether Robison was correct in his accusation is an equally important one: if the freemasons are really up to no good, are they continuing with their shenanigans today?

A lot of people believe they are, and many are speaking out with revelations of various levels of believability. Many are dismissed as conspiracy theorists (which, in turn, reinforces the belief of many others in the secret societies’ willingness to ‘throttle the truth’). Former singer-songwriter and winner of The X Factor Australia, Altiyan Childs, for example, shared a five-hour video where he proclaims that nearly every Western institution has been infiltrated by the Freemasons, to the point where it is nearly impossible to rise to high office – from the world of entertainment to politics and everything in between – without the silent nod of this international fraternity. That video has been viewed nearly four million times.

While it may be easy to laugh off such outlandish claims based on the ‘Illuminati’ and other such groups, there are other societies that make no secret about their secrecy, and have a much more tangible claim to controlling the world. 

World Economic Forum

If there were a reigning king of secret societies today, the title would undoubtedly go to the World Economic Forum. Founded in 1971 by the German engineer and economist Klaus Schwab, the foundation, which brings together the top 1,000 most powerful corporations in the world, views its mission as "improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas." Democratic procedure doesn’t seem to have a place in this formula.

As the author and social critic Nick Buxton described the annual confab, held in the mountains of Davos, Switzerland, “this unaccountable invitation-only gathering is increasingly where global decisions are being taken and moreover is becoming the default form of global governance.” 

Schwab has gone on record as saying that “the sovereign state has become obsolete,” and that in order to fill the power void there needs to be a “global issue alliance” apparently with himself at the helm.

Not only does Davos serve as an elitist cocktail party for “improving the state of the world” far from the prying eyes of humanity, it also works to “penetrate” governments around the world with their self-taught protégé.

“So we penetrate the cabinets”.Here is Klaus Schwab in 2017 discussing how the WEF have penetrated governments with its young global leaders - like Justin

— James Melville (@JamesMelville) February 1, 2022

“What we are really proud of now is the young generation, like Prime Minister [Justin] Trudeau,” Schwab boasted back in 2017, who make it possible for us to “penetrate the cabinets” of governments around the world.

The Davos leader then provided an example, saying he had “attended a reception for Prime Minister Trudeau and I saw that half or his cabinet or even more are from the Young Global Leaders program of the World Economic Forum.”

It does not require much imagination for regular folks - never mind the conspiracy theorists - to find something nefarious about the most powerful people on the planet “penetrating” governments with their specially trained representatives. And that’s exactly what happened with the introduction of the Covid-19 pandemic – many people saw it as a fabricated emergency to not only deprive millions of people of their livelihood, but to further enrich the very individuals who make up the ranks of the Davos group (the forced lockdowns on people and private businesses caused one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history as only the very largest companies could survive under such conditions).

There were other reasons to be suspicious. In October 2019, the WEF, together with Johns Hopkins University and the Bill & Melissa Gates Foundation, held a tabletop seminar entitled Event 201 that described what would happen in the event of a global pandemic. Three months later, everything that the simulation described – from the lockdown of entire countries, to businesses being forced to close down – came to pass with the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Of course, this is not to say that Klaus Schwab and the Davos elite took advantage of a deadly pandemic to enrich themselves, but many people believe just that – or are at least suspicious about a secretive organization pushing for a ‘Great Reset’. Those two words have become the trigger word for many – while the WEF presented them as a benevolent post-Covid economic recovery plan, detractors pointed to a 2016 video released by the Forum as a prediction of the future and featuring the ominous words “You'll own nothing. And you'll be happy.” The plan, they claim, is to enact a new global world order.

Skull and Bones

In a non-descript building (for a full view of this structure, which is dubbed ‘the Tomb’ – and for good reason – check out the video) on the campus of Yale University is the home of Skull and Bones, a secretive fraternity that first appeared on the scene in 1832 (women were not granted membership into Skull and Bones until 1992).

Skull and Bones, which is also known as The Order, Order 322 or The Brotherhood of Death, is notoriously selective in determining who can become a so-called ‘Bonesman.’ The society selects new members among students every spring as part of its so-called ‘Tap Day’ when just 15 seniors are invited.

Despite its intense exclusivity, many members have ascended after graduation to positions of prominence in the world of intelligence, business and government. Three of them—William Howard Taft, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush—went on to become U.S. presidents. This was the cause of an awkward moment in the 2004 United States presidential election between George W. Bush and John Kerry, both members of Skull and Bones.

The late NBC journalist Tim Russert confronted both men as to their membership in the organization and ‘what that means for America.’ Bush just chuckled and said, “It’s so secret we can’t talk about it.” Kerry responded almost the same, saying he could not speak about his membership “because it’s a secret.” And with that the American people were forced to choose between two men from opposite sides of the particular spectrum who shared secrets the voter would never know about.


This group got its name from the Bilderberg Hotel, located in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, where the Bilderbergs had their first meeting in May 1954. But unlike Skull and Bones, Bilderberg is very much global in scope. In fact, it is so global that one of the conspiracy theories it must contend with is that it is trying to create a one world government.

Denis Healey, one of the original founders of the group, lent credence to that theory when he told a journalist: "To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn't go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing." 

The invitees tend to hail from a narrow spectrum of occupations – CEOs, finance ministers and heads of state. For the one or two journalists who receive an invitation, the privilege is largely symbolic since they are not permitted to write about what they see and hear. Bilderberg releases an annual list of those who will attend and the subjects they’ll discuss, but beyond that, little leaves the walls of the hotel. 

So here we are left with the question: is there any place for secret societies inside of our democracies, especially when the members of these groups are always working on behalf of their own special interests? The answer seems obvious, but as it stands there are no laws on the books that prevent people – even those who say they represent us – from meeting together in private. As a result, the only option for the common folk is to protest these back-door meetings at every opportunity. And that is all.

Transition of Planet Earth has Begun

The Light has won

The transformation now is actually a timetable of events and procedures of events, which is called timeline. Humanity is now on a timeline where something significant is about to happen; that is, noteworthy events are now taking place in this Universe Age; which qualifies as historical turning point.

Planet Earth is making its transition from 3D to 5D, many of the contemporary souls incarnated on Earth are now also making their Ascension. It is the most important moment in the entire planetary or even in the history of the Universe, but above all, this is the greatest moment on Earth with the awakening of Humanity.

The oft-publicised already ancient Armageddon prophecies will not happen! We are going to experience incredible times. However, there is still a major obstacle that undoubtedly concerns the fate of humanity itself; but at this moment in time, this is the most decisive moment for humanity on planet Earth.

Two new well-defined Timelines will determine the future: one will lead part of humanity to the New 5D Earth; the other will lead the rest into exile to another 3D planet.

Only a third of humanity is capable of performing and completing the ascension necessary for this transition; the other part is not. Eventually, a New Cycle and a New Earth will emerge. Where no authority or superior exists to influence our free will and choices. Everyone will be their own judge. No one will interfere with individual preferences of others.

The Light has won. Where everyone creates their own reality. The fate of humanity has now been definitively decided. The wheat has been separated from the chaff. Only 5-dimensional beings will go to the New 5-D Earth. This process is expected to be completed, cleared and settled around 2025.

The light will become more intense, making it impossible for sleepers to sleep through. It is certain, that many, even if awakened by the high Light intensity, will choose another dark planet to continue their soul’s deep sleep there. Therefore, this article is only for those who are truly awake and have chosen the path of the New 5D Earth.

Humanity is awakening

Be prepared and be on your guard, because things are moving fast now. The banks are closing, make sure you stock up on basic necessities. The transition could take up to three weeks. The corrupt cabal cronies and their backers will be removed. They are part of the Deep State because of the money and work they did for them. This made them feel important, but will now pay a high price.

Before the endless wars of the Deep State Cabal, the objectives were never told, such as the destruction of ancient and modern cities, maximisation of casualties and massive damages to earn money for interest on borrowed money for reconstruction.

For thousands of years, our history has largely been made a deception, especially since 1706, the Khazarian Zionist Mafia has manipulated and changed almost every fact and aspect to keep the population completely in the dark, better controlled and oppressed, but that has ended now. The truth is coming out and every day more people understand what is happening now, and are slowly waking up.

Unsecured paper money and banks will eventually disappear. Real gold-backed money will not; money and banks are tools of the cabal to oppress the population through their debt-based economy that ensures humans can never thrive.

Unrest and insecurity are spreading and more and more people are losing their grip on their world and orientation. Especially people who have no inner connection to themselves and their eternal soul are now caught in the maelstrom of disinformation, confusion and deception. They are unable to see what is going on, and they are unable to see through what is being played. So these people will remain the playthings of the corrupt rulers.

Many will disappear from planet earth or leave. The unity of all people together can only be achieved with souls who are ripe for it. So it happens now, that oppressed people have to leave this earth with the oppressors.

What is hailed as a blessing brings death, what is clothed with a promise of salvation brings disease. Many succumb or will succumb to the gene therapy of the Corona vaccination.

Warnings regarding its danger were ignored by immature souls, neither seen nor recognised. So, it happens that people end or shorten their lifespan by their free choice. These are people who are not ready for the coming changes.

Greatest moment on earth

Many other things will be settled in the same way at the soul level. For everyone chooses when they end life on earth or when mastery is achieved. Very few are ready for this.

So, don’t worry if many people leave this earth. It happens in harmony and in the knowledge of one’s own soul plan. Each soul chooses and decides before human life, the kind of experiences to be had and the abilities to be acquired. So each soul knows when and how to end its life.

While these changes are taking place on Earth, many Beings from the Extraterrestrial Realms are watching us awakeners with admiration and recognition.

You awakeners are the ones we have been waiting for, and you are also the ones leaving the old behind to create the new life with people who want peace and trust and appreciate each other.

This effort requires mature and tested souls. A young soul with little experience on planet Earth will find it difficult to find its way, even under optimal 3D conditions. Such a soul will be overwhelmed by what is now manifesting on planet earth.

So it happens that some wake up and others slip into a deep sleep:

They are They;

  • Who could not see or understand the evil behind the Corona theatre.
  • Who refused any clarification and believed the lies presented.
  • And, who have no discernment between the good from the bad.

For these people, the circle of this life closes, they are those who do not engage in change, and now end their last life cycle on earth.

Evil disappears as soon as you recognise it and put it in its place. Satan no longer has power over those who see through the wiles and tricks and/or did not succumb to the lure of temptation.

Today’s new timeline has been prepared for mature souls; the time has come for those who want to crown their lives and serve planet Earth as fully conscious human beings.

We are now at the turning point. As Earth as Planet makes its Transition, many of the souls incarnated here are simultaneously making their Ascension. It is the most important moment in all planetary history, but above all, it is the greatest moment of planet Earth and in the awakening of Humanity.

Below, our Exterrestrial correspondent Vital Frosi provides additional information he received on this subject, and now being published on FWC sites.

Parallel or Simultaneous Timelines

Dear people!

When we talk about timelines, we mean a particular situation that deviates from what was considered normal so far, or the continuation of what always was. So when we say that a change has taken place in a timeline, we are talking about what is going to change, namely that nothing will be the same again.

Normally, a timeline affects the collectivity. It is of little consequence when it affects only one person or a very small part of the collective. Such Timelines can also interfere with the Planet as a whole, that is, change enough to cause a Planetary Transition.

We have talked about this before. We said that a New Timeline in 2010, changed the fate of Earth. The old Line that determined Armageddon was extinguished, and in its place emerged a Timeline that makes the Planetary Transition smoother and more harmonious.

All Planets and their Humanity undergo deep transformations in a period of infinite time. Like, for example, that we are experiencing now on Planet Earth. This is part of the plan of reconciliation for all worlds.

But today we are going to talk about something very interesting happening now in these final months of 2022. We are experiencing a situation that has never happened before: where we are living in two simultaneous timelines.

Let us first understand that Timelines can be Antagonistic (contradictory), parallel or simultaneous. The difference between these three is easy to understand. Antagonistic is when you live a totally different reality from other people. Parallel is when you live two different realities, but sometimes clearly one, sometimes the other. You realise exactly what the difference between the two is. Simultaneous Timelines are a jumble of things like a fruit salad.

Today we are going to elucidate on simultaneous timelines, because that is what comes most into focus in late 2022. Chances are that after understanding this, you will be able to gain some relief from the tension that the current times bring.

Understanding what is going on will give you some peace in the turmoil we are going through. When you were told in previous messages that everyone chooses a timeline according to their frequency, and that it will very soon send you in opposite directions, it was actually about the present moment, concerning the days that are about to come.

If it is the frequency of each consciousness that determines who will ascend their souls now, it is clear that it will also be that frequency which will guide each to one Timeline or the other. But this is not an event that can be observed in a day. Such a fact may take several years, but it will not last long. We are on the cusp of that moment.

The year 2022 will indeed be a demarcation as was said at the end of 2021. Even if this is not very clear yet, we will see further down the road how it all worked out.

Individual choices will determine the final line.

Pay attention to your feelings. You are not the same creature as before. There is something intriguing in your feelings. Forget the old beliefs for a while, and allow yourself the new. At least accept the possibility that nothing will be the same again. Don’t resist what your intuition says. Believe in the many possibilities. Nothing that was until now will stay that way from now on.

Do short meditations and feel your body, your inner voice and your heart. Learn to listen to the voice of your soul. It is guiding you now as never before. And you must separate yourself from old beliefs to allow new ones.

New realities are emerging faster and faster, and you may find yourself in mental confusion or existential conflict. This confusion is caused precisely because you are experiencing two timelines simultaneously.

It is easy to identify this. Notice how there are moments when it feels like you are no longer yourself. Then, things seem to return to normal. There are situations that seem to have happened in old times, and then you understand that it is in fact real; that it is happening now. There are also moments that seem like you are dreaming, but which you see and recognise that it is not a dream. In short, the sense of what is real and what is not is constantly confused.

These are two simultaneous timelines, which at times can also be two parallel timelines. The difference is that the simultaneous timeline is shorter and more confusing. The parallel timeline, on the other hand, is longer felt and the difference between the two becomes clearer.

What we have to say today is that simultaneous Timelines of today will soon lock into parallel Timelines. And later they will in fact be two opposite (antagonistic) Timelines that will determine the course of each incarnated soul here on Planet Earth. It depends on the adjustment each can still make in terms of vibrational frequency.

Every human being incarnated now has one last choice. It will be decisive because this is also the last incarnation in duality on this Planet. The opportunity offered by the Divine Plan is so great that it allows each incarnated soul to feel the many vibrations, so that each can choose his path without doubt.

This “imbroglio” (turmoil) of feeling is what gives each the direction to choose according to the current stage in the evolution of each incarnated soul. Remember that everything is frequency, and the universal laws do not read words.

No one can cheat their own conscience. We still have some time left, but the funnel is getting narrower. The Timelines are available to everyone, and everyone can make their choice now.

The transformation of the world has begun

Something big is about to happen
