The Six Most Thought-Provoking Questions of Our Times Are:

Updated on January 14, 2020

Born in Holland Nadine emigrated to South Africa taught art therapy and had a spiritual awakening that influenced her whole outlook on life.


1 Is the Human Body a Program in itself?

Our human body and the computer have many things in common but unlike the computer, our living body never shuts down (it only powers down during sleep).

Our physical body is made from stuff in the Universe and it has a unconscious brain(like the motherboard of a computer) that controls the operations of our body, but obviously man is not just chemicals and genes but much more.

Okay, our DNA is the essential ‘blueprint’ for how our bodies are specifically constructed. This chemical blueprint, the thing that makes it different to a microprocessor blueprint, is the human DNA 'code'; and it is affected by the way the code is executed.

Yes, our physical body stores a program as non-volatile and volatile information in our DNA and this information is transferred to RNA and ultimately to proteins (e.g. neurotransmitters, ion channels)then this information tells the brain what to do.

One area of the brain can take over the functions of our whole body but what about the so-called specialized higher functions like, memory and intelligence? Those functions are not limited to the brain alone, but spread in a general way throughout the body, interconnecting with our other energy bodies.

It's my understanding (for now) that heredity and genetic determinism is a habit, merely a bad habit of nature.The real question for me is, what is free will? Does it exist, or are the decisions we make dependent on our DNA codes?

It's all to do with choice.Our intent and will is the crucial trigger, the switch that sets in motion the entire machinery of the body.

In this article I have addressed six questions in order to share them with people who have the will, understanding and determination to be freed from a kind of 'indoctrination program from the moment we were born'.


The Mystery behind Apollo 18

2 Are we Living in a Simulated Hologram?

The idea behind that question is that our physical reality is created by a computer kind of main frame; a mental matrix. Yes our physical world is a virtual reality, and we are the players looking in.The Matrix films, starring Keanu Reeves has inspired me to perceive that our external reality could very well be a fictional movie that distorts universal reality, because it is contrived by others (dark forces) and not us in our present timeline.

The theory that reality, as we consciously experience it, is not real goes back to the indigenous people who believed that we exist in a dream or illusion.

Are the two tech billionaires (Sam Altman and Elon Musk )secretly engaging scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation?. What does this mean? What evidence is there that we are, in fact, living in The Matrix?

Rahul Parashar's Hubarticle Inception – One of the best sci-fi movies like The Matrix

His article has many film reviews on the topic of living in a simulated world. Like The mystery behind Apollo 18 - It is the near future. Astronaut Sam Bell is living on the far side of the moon.

Many works of science fiction as well as some forecasts by serious technologists and futurologists predict that enormous amounts of computing power will be available in the future, so who knows, it could be that We are the creators of the time-line we are living in now.

Hollywood has created several movies that elaborate on this scenario. The TV series 'Travelers' is a good example.

Hundreds of years from now, surviving humans discover how to send consciousness back through time, into people of the 21st century, while attempting to save humanity from a terrible future.

3 Are Human Souls Trapped in this Physical World?

Personally my observation is that there isn't a division between this physical reality and the non-physical reality. I do NOT accept that this world is a kind of prison planet, because we are capable of connecting our consciousness with the non-physical at any time. Its our subconscious that might sabotage us through holding onto fear or anger experiences.

The Law of Attraction is clear proof that what we focus our mental and emotional energy toward will grow in order to materialize.

What we believe creates our reality

If somebody is a prisoner or trapped in the reality they do not want, then it is because they have allowed themselves to become that way.

That is somewhat a harsh statement, but none of us truly know what a human soul wants to experience. I feel that many souls are born during these times to inject a kind of awakening code into humanity by simply dying through negative events or illnesses, who knows?

Every death has its purpose no matter how or why a life is cut short, but what it does do to humanity is that negative forces will use all kind of means to keep people into the program that is controlled by fear. Fears are tools to control the masses, and that is why the following question comes to mind.

How many people who read this article, are they still totally ignoring the signs of our times?

How trapped are you?

See results

4 Is Humanity Trapped into 'Indoctrination Programs?

Unfortunately, we are all at different stages in our development in consciousness. If people subscribe to the prison planet scenario, then indeed there is a 'cabal' that wants them to stay there.

Everyone has to make a concerted effort to break away from all negative control matrixes.

A good check is to be honest with yourself and at what news or reading materials you are absorbed in.

  • What does this material makes you feel after having read it? News about negative terror attacks; how do you feel a week later after following a website or reading a book that focuses on negativity.

Find a book or website for something more positive or fun.(I do, that is why I love to get involved in my creative imagery work)

  • Whatever attracts our attention... creates our points of view of a world that might just be a kind of hologram. The perceptions we hold dear about our individual reality will align to the very information we are consuming.
  • Thought is energy and thought creates.....

The world is what we make it, so if we make it a prison, then it's a prison for us.
It is therefore important to become aware of hidden truth

On the other hand, if we make it a loving, joy-filled experience- then that's what we get. That is why I speculate on the following questions.

5 When is World News a False Flag?

The term false flag describes covert operations that are designed to deceive in encouraging fake attacks to get people all worked up and scared. Terror engages people's minds, so they then are closed off to what is really going on.

  • Was Manchester a false flag? (What has happened in Manchester is awful and my thoughts are with the families) The Daily Mail reported Twitter comments - that all agree that this looks like a false flag.
  • Was London Bridge a false flag alert?
  • The World Trade center - article by somethgblue

What would be the reasons? This video ( the 3 Coming False Flag Attacks - Published on 13 Mar 2016 ) explains the possible reasons

If we hold the idea that we experience life in a simulated reality, then we might as well stop reacting to what might just be unreal. Instead we move into an observation mode while having compassion for the millions who are reacting through expressing anger fear, hurt and sadness.


6 Are Higher-frequencies Triggering an Awakening in People around the Globe?

Most of the human population is still unaware about the unfolding of a new awareness and the sensations that come with it, but that does not matter. They will when the right time for them has arrived.

Ascension movements have been around for the last forty plus years but in the last ten or so years it has speed up at a rapid pace. Triggers are like biological clocks that activate when the time is right to move your consciousness to higher frequency is clearly happening. The internet and social media has been a major factor in the six awakening movements on all levels.

Awakening to Ascension groups that have chosen the following directions are:

  • Our economic systems
  • Health and medicines
  • Political agendas
  • Environmental issues
  • Science & Technology
  • New age related ideologies

In my follow up article I will explore the obstacles and possible solutions people might come up with to the six awakening movements that could very well be what the Mayan Calendar was predicting all along.

The Sixth Sun Mayan Calendar—our present 26,000-year-long calendar—is a tool that allows people to remember that past, present, and future take place simultaneously in the eternal “now.”

When we open our minds and hearts to the Sixth Sun Calendar technology, we remember all our virtues and the virtues in others.

How we create the future we desire. When we wake up by remembering that cause and effect happen simultaneously and we no longer need to choose when we are at a crossroads between destiny and free will. Then our Free will becomes our destiny because we choose it.

How can people reawaken the passion and reconnect with what's meaningful for them?

In my next article I have written about the six Soul Purpose opportunities people might have chosen during this lifetime.

Six future opportunities were people can find their passion to make a difference.

      Great thought provoking hub posing some really thought provoking questions that all of us must be asking!

      I enjoyed reading your high quality hub and your views about it.

      A very well written and valuable article indeed!

      Thanks Diana yes I agree that these questions are helpful, especially when we find ourselves in an reactive mode...which is so easy to be in, instead in staying the observer at all times.

      Thank you so much for your comments on this post Martie. Indeed there is no end to this topic. Like Manatta says: the illusion and the real are one and work together, but it's the third state we are aiming for...To become the observer that is aware of both the dream and the awakening all times.

      Thank you so very much for your comments Manatita. You are so very right that the illusion and the real are one and work together, that nothing comes from an empty void.You call the third state the witness, and I call it the observer...same thing that looks at both the dream and awakening states and drives them all. Thanks...

      Your call the false flag a tale flag idea...with the word tale you mean they are all tales? Interesting...I will still keep an open mind..Like our internet, there are viruses that attack peoples computers and the very virus protection programs people buy because they claim to safeguard users from viruses... I wonder who created the viruses in the first place?

      Though I may have a dissimilar take on existence than you, I certainly am always questioning the nature of reality.

      Always interesting my friend:-)

      Interesting. Very thought-provoking, if I could vote up, I would!

      I'd be interested in knowing how Trump might play into the tale flags idea, if at all. Very interesting ideas.

      Well, there is the Maya, the illusion and the Real. Maya is a kind of perception of seeing all things as real, like a dream, but then we awake and the dream is gone.

      Maya is also said to be the Real. The Seers say that the illusion and the Real are one and work together, that nothing comes from an empty void. Put in Sri Chinmoy's innimitable way, he says that the universe is God's body... that creator and creation are one.

      It is great and good of you to explore; to make us think. Perhaps we sleep too much ... live in the Maya, believing it to be all, but again it is said to be part and parcel of the plan.

      Dream is necessary, right, but there is a third state, a witness, if you like, that looks at both the dream and awakening states and drives them all.

      A very thought-provoking hub, Nadine.

      What we believe creates our reality is most certainly a fact.

      This is where religion come's in, or at least those that encourage people to free themselves from reality that contains illness, enemies, thieves, murderers, etc., and to focus on the good (God), which is love, peace, and inner joy. Of course, religion is not the only 'tool' we can use to free ourselves from reality. Many good (and bad) habits and beliefs can be acquired and utilized as escape-mechanisms.

      I believe in genetic memory, but then, useful wisdom and experience are only obtained after we have passed genes (including memory) on to our offspring. So, it is all wasted except to the highly intelligent who is able to learn from history and the experiences of others.

      I also believe that breeding is a powerful tool. But breeding can be seen as indoctrination of good and bad convictions, beliefs and ethics.

      Nothing has changed in the make-up of human beings, except their knowledge, convictions, beliefs, ethics, and, of course, fashion and material stuff that makes life on this planet more comfortable. Inherently, humans are still the same physical creatures that exist since the beginning of humanity. Driven by three primary urges - to live, to multiply and to die - and all their sub-urges, we react on impulses, and most of the time instinctively instead of according to our knowledge, convictions, beliefs, and ethical values.

      This topic doesn't have an end.

      An extremely interesting take on our reality or lack thereof. Makes me pause to consider which rabbit hole I want to go down into.

      Nadine, your articles never fail to make one question what we have previously taken for granted as being our reality. I do think false flags are often used to try to install fear and control the majority while diverting their attention from other goings on of even greater concern. Thank you for always exercising my mind.

      A very intersting article opening many doors and a spanning a lot of information. Well written and I like how it was presented leading to the Ascension groups six points. A lot for me to digest and ponder. That leads to me to a question being that an element to consider is not being able to comprehend consciousness's message. Thanks for sharing Nadine.
