Well, this is perhaps one of the most important concepts or fundamental
cornerstones you need to assimilate to free your mind : ALL THEIR PRAISES
They don't talk about you, right ? So at this point they may try to
inculcate in your mind the idea that you are the big shot.
The truth is : YOU ARE NOT. You are just one more person, one more guy,
one more girl, one more PAN, whatever. You are as important as
anyone else, either in your STAGE-WORLD, or in the BACKSTAGE reality.
Forget about their sick DREAMWORLD-TO-SELL, because it simply
doesn't exist. It's an illusion THEY create to keep your mind under THEIR
control. YOU KNOW IT.
Did you or your brain use to believe in Santa Claus or Father Christmas ?
Well, now it's time to grow up.
Here are a few examples of what might happen.
Example #1 :
Someone in the subway says : "The guy is a genius. He did a masterstroke"
So you mentalize :
"THE GUY IS A GENIUS. HE IS A GENIUS. NOT YOU. ARE THEY TALKING TO YOU ? NO, THEY'RE NOT. THEY TALK TO EACH OTHER. THEY TALK ABOUT THEMSELVES OR ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE THEY KNOW. DO THEY KNOW YOU ? NO, THEY DON'T. SO THAT GUY IS A GENIUS, NEVER YOU. HE DID A MASTERSTROKE, NOT YOU. WOW, WHAT A BIG SHOT HE MUST BE. CLAPS FOR HIM.".
You see ? The idea is that now YOU are going to PRAISE THEM within your
Example #2 :
Someone at your work says : "She took the first place in the Math Olympics".
Now you visualize :
"SHE TOOK THE FIRST PLACE. NOT YOU. SHE TOOK, NOT YOU. ARE YOU COMPETING IN THE MATH OLYMPICS ? NO, YOU'RE NOT. SHE IS. DID YOU ENROLL TO THE COMPETITION ? NO, YOU DIDN'T. SHE DID. SHE WON, NOT YOU. SHE MUST BE A GENIUS. CLAPS FOR HER.".
Example #3 :
Let's say now that you live in Cincinnati, Ohio. You're wandering in the sidewalk when you pass in front of a store with a TV in its window. The TV is on and two people are watching it at the sidewalk. One says : "This guy is terrific. He won a nomination for the Oscar already. He deserves it.". The other replies : "She is also fantastic. She deserves an Oscar, too". Curious, you look at the TV screen and you see two known Hollywood artists who have been nominated for the upcoming Oscar.
So you must mentalize :
"HE IS TERRIFIC. NOT YOU. CLAPS FOR HIM. SHE IS FANTASTIC. NOT YOU. CLAPS FOR HER. THEY HAVE WON A NOMINATION FOR THE OSCAR. NOT YOU AND YOUR BELOVED ONE. CLAPS FOR THEM. THEY ARE TAKING PART IN A CONTEST. NOT YOU. THEY COMPETE WITH OTHER ARTISTS. NOT YOU. THAT'S THEIR LIFE, THEIR PROBLEM. NOT YOURS."
And once the speculation involved the notion of competition, you may want to add :
"THERE IS NO GAME WHATSOEVER", "THERE IS NO COMPETITION IN THE BACKSTAGE".
Finally, because of the idolatry of THEIR characters in the sidewalk, you have the option of adding :
"IDOLATRY IN THE STAGE WORLD" or "IDOLATRY IN THE MATRIX".
To reinforce, mentalize also,
"THERE IS NO IDOLATRY IN THE BACKSTAGE".
And because of the subliminal suggestion that you are a 'Truman' and therefore are being watched like an artist by millions of people, I suggest you add :
"TRUMANIZATION OF AUDIENCE". (you'll see more on this in the section 'TRUMANIZATION OF AUDIENCE' later on in this text).
Do you see how malicious and insinuating THEY are ?
DECONSTRUCTING YOUR SELF-IMAGE
They may try to brainwash you with delirious labels such as : GENIUS,
MASTER, MONSTER, BRAINY, SUPREME, PRODIGY, SUPERB, SUPERLATIVE,
SUPERSTAR, PHENOMENON, MATHEMATICIAN, HACKER, CHESS CHAMPION, INVENTOR,
PIONEER, EINSTEIN, MILLIONAIRE, KING, PRESIDENT, TEACHER,
HEAD OF THE UNIVERSITY, C.E.O., POPE, GANDHI, ARCHBISHOP, MONARCH,
NOBLE, COUNT, LORD, PRINCE, PRINCESS, DUKE, DUCHESS, etc.
They may also try to talk about team names of your region like if they
were talking about you, just to praise yourself deliriously, like for
example the St. Louis CARDINALS (baseball / USA), the New York
GIANTS (football / USA), or the Washington WIZARDS (basketball /
Realize that YOU ARE NOTHING. Ask your beloved one inside your heart. He/She will confirm to you. YOU ARE NOTHING. That's the dry, raw and naked truth. YOU ARE A PIECE OF NOTHING SURROUNDED BY A FACTORY OF ILLUSIONS. Can you feel it ? Feel it.
Feel it over and over, day after day, till it's not necessary anymore.
"The Matrix is everywhere, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. IT IS THE WORLD THAT HAS BEEN PULLED OVER YOUR EYES TO BLIND YOU FROM THE TRUTH." (Morpheus); "What truth ?" (Neo); "THAT YOU ARE A SLAVE" (Morpheus).
(from the movie "The Matrix").
Likewise the "Matrix" reality in the movie,
THEY want to create and feed a SELF-IMAGE for you, so that THEY can
continue with THEIR speculation indefinitely.
Ask yourself : do you want to be FREE or do you want to be a SLAVE ? Do you
want to be a PUPPET ? Do you want to feel like cattle marching into the
If you want to be FREE of this CIRCUS, you must not permit THEM to inculcate
and manipulate a SELF-IMAGE in your brain, either positive or negative.
So you must reject all the labels THEY try to associate with your person,
for good or for bad. These labels are the very root of THEIR
I'll repeat once more : YOU ARE A PIECE OF NOTHING SURROUNDED BY A FACTORY
If you believe you have an 'ego', then the bad news for you 'ego' is that
you're no big shot, and the good news is that you're no 'big shit',
either. It may sound like a joke, but you can even use this pun as a
memokey against their speculation : "BIG SHOT VERSUS BIG SHIT".
On the other side, you may realize that some RARE labels you can accept,
IF AND ONLY IF they are spoken directly TO YOU, and IF they are PHYSICALLY
connected to your reality.
Example : TALL. Are you a tall person ? (compared to the average of the other people in the STAGE society). Let's say you're a tall adult. So if someone says : "Hi, it's been a long time since we last met. You're taller, aren't you ?", you may mentalize :
"IT'S TRUE, YOU'RE PHYSICALLY A TALL PERSON, BUT NOT TALLER THAN BEFORE".
ADVANCED EXAMPLE - ASSOCIATED PRAISE
Another interesting and important variation is what you may call the
'ASSOCIATED PRAISE' during the process of freeing your brain : in
every single breakthrough in this process, they may try to praise you and
inculcate you with false premises. WATCH OUT !
Here is an example of this, a more complex example involving several types of speculation in one only package !
Let's say you live somewhere in England. In the process of getting free from this CIRCUS, you're working hard in your computer, making lists of keywords, archetypes to label THEIR brainwashing, and so on.
Never mind. THEY will try to associate PRAISES with your daily little discoveries. So you dream about an English soccer team (that you call "football") beating another team by an outstanding score of 6 x 0.
Nevertheless, this score wasn't enough : a voice inserted in your dream, like a story teller says : "This time was only 6 x 0. But it could have been 20 x 0".
You're still somnolent when you start mentalizing your archetypes. At
first, you associate the dream with the past. Your brain start thinking of
what in your last waking day, perhaps in your computer work to label them,
may have been this outstanding victory of 6x0. Maybe keyword 'X' ? Or
archetype 'Y' ?
That's when you realize you're still being manipulated by a puppetmaster. So you rapidly start mentalizing :
"THE PRAISES ARE FALSE", "YOU ARE NOTHING", "THERE IS NO GAME", "YOU'RE NOT A PLAYER", "YOU'RE NOT A TEAM", "YOU NEVER WIN", "YOU NEVER LOSE", "YOU NEVER DRAW".
To reinforce it, you create another archetype :
Then you take a deep breath, and continue :
"DO THEY RECOGNIZE ANY GAME ? NO, THEY DON'T. ARE THEY TALKING TO YOU ?"
OOPS! You stop and notice that you cannot use this, because it was a
dream, and there was indeed a voice (inserted like a story teller)
talking to you. THEY govern your nightly dreams, THEY insert these dreams
inside your brain, and you have no control over it.
So you take another deep breath, and improvise creating another archetype
to mentalize, in order to label and reduce THEIR speculation :
"PUPPET IN DREAMS".
You realize that you're already awake and not tired, but on the other side
it's not yet the time you were supposed to wake up. You have still an hour
and a half ahead of good sleep, when you start associating that dream with
the future !
You can wake up now and go to your computer because you're motivated. You
have an hour and a half of work waiting for you. You have new archetypes
to file in your list!
So the problem begins again : you associate that soccer stratospheric
score of 20 x 0 with the future, meaning that if you file your new
archetypes you may be labeled praisely as a 'superwinner'.
And once more you notice THEIR manipulation behind this sick association. Then you mentalize :
And because there was an artificial division of reality embedded in that dream ("6x0 versus 20x0", "winner versus superwinner", "winner versus loser", etc.) you add :
Then finally you take a last deep breath, wake up, go to your computer
and update your archetypes list with this last speculation about ASSOCIATED
PRAISES and FALSE DICHOTOMY !
Are you getting the spirit of the exercises ? Always improvise with new archetypes. Always add these new archetypes to your list. Categorize THEM, classify THEM, reduce THEM, label THEM. That's what THEY do to you all the time.
SO NOW IT'S YOUR TIME !!
