Reality is an Illusion -- Welcome to the Matrix

Updated on January 27, 2019

They're All the Same

From all mainstream sources, we get the same thing when it comes to the nature of reality; all mainstream politicians, scientists, educators, and media personalities present only one perspective and opinion when it comes to this kind of stuff. If you say something like: "This reality is nothing more than a sophisticated highly advance virtual reality video game," you will face the same rejection from all of the apparently "different" aspects of the mainstream world -- they are all exactly the same on this, as well as they are on a host of other issues. The religious and scientific establishments will also equally dismiss anyone who says any such thing -- even though all the religious books say it is so, as well as vast areas of science. However, if you say something like that, the entire Control System (government, education, law, banking, religion, health, media etc...) stands together -- as one voice -- that does everything it can to get you to sit down and shut up.

Within that structure, all of the apparently "opposing" sides take the same position on all of the issues that help preserve the Control System; FOX news will be happy to ridicule you just the same as CNN if you suggest that "reality" is an illusion. They are not different, not when you go beyond the surface; when you get behind the facade -- they are all the same. All these institutions appear to be different, but here they are -- all promoting the same version of reality while abusing anyone who thinks differently. How is that different? It's not; it only looks different on the surface, but it is the same thing.

The reason that it's like this is because the Control System is structured exactly the same as every pyramid scheme that you have ever heard of; the whole thing is controlled from the very top by an extremely small number of people. Say that to Democrats and they will call you a crazy conspiracy theorist nut job; say that to Republicans and they will call you a crazy conspiracy theorist nut job. Are they different? Not a chance! When you go far beyond all of this, you find out that there is indeed a Global Conspiracy that involves reducing humanity to little more than livestock. That is why all of these seemingly different expressions of the Control System speak and act in unison -- because they all have their role within The Conspiracy.

Some people think the media would tell us if there was any such thing, but they aren't going to tell us about The Conspiracy if they're part of it, not then. If there is even the slightest doubt as to whether the media is part of The Conspiracy or not: Operation Mockingbird. Now that we've got that all cleared up, can we please move forward? Yes? Thanks...

But what if it really is just an illusion?

They don't tell us the truth, we should all know that by now ... but why? Why don't they tell us the truth? It is because they are all expressions of the same vastly outreaching conspiracy to control the reality that the human race is able to experience. Part of that control is to make sure that we never realize the true nature of reality; if we understand that, they will no longer be able to manipulate us. That is why everyone from every political party, media outlet, and so on, has the same opinion on the true nature of "reality". They cannot bear the thought of you ever even conceiving of a possible "reality" beyond what they say there is; this is why no-one who ever makes such a suggestion is given any time whatsoever anywhere in anything mainstream or official.

What kind of control would the Control System have, if it ever announced to humanity that what we think of as physical-five-sense "reality" doesn't actually exist? Ha! They would have no power after that; it doesn't matter if it's true or not, they will oppose anything that threatens their power to control -- but what if it is true? What if "reality" really is just an illusion?

Bill Hicks: "All matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration; we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death; life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves."

Imagine a world where that kind of "reality" was pushed onto the masses of people by all that is mainstream everything. Imagine how the world would be transformed if that was the mentality that was shared by everyone on the planet.

Virtual Reality

At first, it can be quite a stretch of the mind to consider that we could truly be experiencing a gigantic fantastically amazing technologically advanced virtual reality video game, but science and technology suggest that we do, in fact, exist within such a "reality". As computer graphics and virtual reality become indistinguishable from real reality, it will become more obvious; our technology is already starting to resemble a reflection of the actual reality we experience and think is "real".

Virtual reality simulators have become so advanced that they can actually convince the brain/body that the simulation is real when it is nothing more than a computer generated artificial virtual reality created for the brain/body to experience. Virtual reality simulators are so effective that hospitals are using them to help patients heal; turns out that if the brain believes healing has occurred (placebo effect) -- actual healing occurs. That is extremely profound; think about it. What "beliefs" do you have about your own state of health? If you are sick, it might be time to change what you believe is true about yourself.

Virtual reality is also being used in war -- WAR! This is about as "real" as it gets: someone playing a video game somewhere, has the ability to kill real people -- sick! That's just how far "virtual reality" has already come; how much further will it go? How much further has it already gone? Are we already within virtual reality?

Virtual reality "hacks" into the way our senses communicate with the brain, which influences how we perceive reality. That's what's happening when people put on virtual reality technology; you can even get a full body "virtual reality suit" that feeds enough electrical and digital information to the brain/body to convince it that what is being experienced is real -- when it is not.

People don't really seem to understand how important this is -- a human being can easily be convinced that something is happening, that is not actually happening; this has a lot to do with how the human race is enslaved, so it is actually very important to understand. If you don't understand how you are enslaved, how can you understand what you need to do to end your slavery? You cannot, and that is why this is so important. If the five-senses can be hacked, in a way that convinces the brain/body to accept a false reality, control can become extremely easy to achieve.

The Metaphysical Universe

The foundation of our virtual reality universe is waveform and vibrational energy. Waveform can contain fantastic amounts of information; in fact, all of the information needed to construct our reality is easily contained within the waveform base structure, which some people refer to as the metaphysical universe.

The metaphysical universe is the waveform level of reality before it becomes what we think of as "physical" within our three-dimensional experience. What we think of as "solid" is actually a holographic expression of the base waveform level of reality, which is then decoded and manifested into "reality" by our artificially intelligent biological robot -- which we lovingly call a "human body".

Whoa! What? What are you talking about? Artificially intelligent biological robot? What?

Yes -- your physical body, which includes your brain, is nothing more than an android ... an avatar, that "you" are inside of. That which is actually "you" has to have a physical body to experience physical reality -- but it is not "you". Your physical body is not you; it is a highly advanced computer -- "you" are so much more than a "physical body" can ever be.

Physicality

When someone dies, the entire physical body remains, but it is obviously not the person anymore -- the "person", the "you", is the energy that made that body come alive.

“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” - Albert Einstein.

You are not your body -- you are inside your body, having an experience that can only be had by being inside a body; your body is just one particular focus, one point of attention and observation, but what "you" really are is so much more than that.

Eventually, we must realize that not only are we inside of our bodies, we are also outside of our bodies. When we truly understand what we really are, we know that our physical bodies actually exist within us -- everything does; we just use the physical body to experience this physical reality, which is just one part of ourselves. Everything exists within each of us because each of us is everything, but our "physical bodies" are not everything; physical bodies are more like computer terminals accessing the internet (waveform metaphysical universe) through wireless WiFi-like connections (pineal/pituitary system).

The internet (reality) is pulled from places we cannot see, out of nowhere, according to our five-senses ... absolutely nowhere. But it's not "nowhere"; it is all around us, just on a different frequency. We cannot experience reality (internet) until we pull it from the unseen metaphysical universe (WiFi frequencies in the air) to where it can manifest and materialize as our experienced reality (whatever is on the screen), and this is exactly how we experience what we perceive to be the physical "real" world around us. The brain/body is what allows us to experience the apparently "real" world around us; without a physical brain/body, you cannot experience a physical world. The same is true of the internet; we cannot experience the internet (reality) unless we have a device (brain/body) that is capable of accessing it. With our devices we can wirelessly connect to the same internet as everyone else, no matter where we are in the world; this is true unless we are in a country or place where parts of the internet are restricted or blocked off.

"Restricted" or "blocked off" is what appears to have happened in the virtual reality game that we call "life"; the human race has been restricted and blocked off from being able to experience a greater reality, just as the people of China have been restricted and blocked off from accessing a greater internet. This means that the reality we experience is limited to the amount of information the brain/body can access; if our ability to access the metaphysical universe has been restricted and blocked off, we are not going to be able to experience the greater reality that is available to everyone all the time.

Our reality manifests and materializes when the brain/body interprets the frequencies of the metaphysical universe, just like images manifest and materialize on the screen whenever a device interprets the frequencies of the WiFi signal it is connected to. The frequencies of the metaphysical universe are then vibrationally transformed into electrical signals that travel to the brain, which then constructs the world that we think is outside of ourselves -- but actually only exists, in that form, inside of our heads. "Reality" is virtual -- it is an illusion ... everywhere else reality is just frequency; it only becomes "real" in our brains, therefore the brain/body is the only place "reality", as we perceive it, actually exists -- everywhere else it is nothing more than waveform information ... period.

Morpheus (The Matrix): "If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain ... You've been living in a dream world."

What we think of as "reality" is nothing more than electrical signals interpreted by our brain -- that's all it is! From certain perspectives, that thought is quite frightening. What are the implications? What if our reality decoding mechanism can be hacked? What then?

"Alpha waves in the human brain are between 6 and 8 hertz. The wave frequency of the human cavity resonates between 6 and 8 hertz. All biological systems operate in the same frequency range. The human brain's alpha waves function in this range and the electrical resonance of the earth is between 6 and 8 hertz. Thus, our entire biological system - the brain and the earth itself - work on the same frequencies. If we can control that resonate system electronically, we can directly control the entire mental system of humankind." - Nikola Tesla.

Hearing is an obvious example of how our reality is constructed: when sound is heard, it's because frequency causes eardrums to vibrate; then, that vibrational information is electrically transmitted to the brain -- which then converts those electrical signals into the sound that is "heard", but that "sound" is only ever a "sound" after it has been through that process. The "sound" only exists within the brain; everywhere else it is just frequency -- the only place it is ever "sound" is inside the brain ... it really is "all in your head".

When someone talks, their vocal cords create invisible vibrations that move outward in all directions; when eardrums encounter the invisible vibrations, they vibrate accordingly and the information goes on from there to be interpreted by the brain. When we hear someone talking, the words we hear only exist, in that form, inside our brains -- everywhere else it is waveform vibrational information.

All the senses work in this same way -- sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell: nothing more than vibrational information becoming electrical information becoming digital information becoming holographic information, which is then perceived as "reality". Your brain could already be in a jar somewhere, hooked up to a computer-generated virtual reality simulation -- a video game -- you would never know the difference!

Hypnotism does the same thing but works differently than virtual reality. Just like virtual reality, hypnotists hack into the decoding mechanisms of the brain; they then convince the brain to accept a false version of reality. The person who has been hypnotized experiences the fake version of reality as if it is the real reality -- and they do not know the difference, just like we do not know the difference in our fake version of reality that we think is "real". People don't even know the difference between an onion and an apple when their ability to decode "reality" is hacked and manipulated; it is no wonder the world is the way it is -- no-one understands reality! Of course we're going to mess things up! We will continue to mess things up until we understand this one basic truth: reality is an illusion.

What we call "life" is just the experience we are having, of a very advanced and sophisticated virtual reality video game that only exists in our mind. Inside our virtual reality (The Matrix), we are constantly exposed to professional hypnotists -- all the time; we are being brainwashed and mind controlled (MK Ultra) on an unimaginable scale: politicians, teachers, media personalities, preachers, parents, scientists, TV shows, movies, music, video games, social media ... on and on it goes. All of this attempts to suggest ideas, beliefs, thoughts, opinions, and perceptions of reality into our brains; if the brain takes on those beliefs, it begins to experience a hypnotic delusion that it believes to be its own thoughts. When this delusion becomes widespread, we collectively live within a false reality ... that we think is real. This is how a whole planet of people can be manipulated, and it is what we are experiencing.

Using the internet as the example makes this easy to understand: What is the internet? Colors, graphics, text, sound, and moving images? Yes, but only on the screen; everywhere else it exists only as electrical information, TV is the same ... and so is the "reality" we think we are experiencing. It is exactly the same: the physical body is a device that allows us to connect to the energy that is all around us; the body then turns that energy into the "reality" we experience -- just like a smartphone turns a WiFi signal into an entire "reality" on its screen. You can only experience that "reality" if you have a device by which to do so; the human body is the device by which we experience this "reality", which is the holographic virtual reality video game that we call the universe -- and "life".

Control the Game

So, how are you doing in your "life"? It's just a game ya know -- a freakin' video game! Sounds crazy, sure, but what do you have when you play a video game? Control -- you have control!

This means your "character" -- YOU -- can change the game; you can change your life.

When you understand how to play a game you can get good at it, but if you don't understand it you will not be very good at it. We have all played video games before -- understand your life as such and it will change into what you always hoped and wished it would be, but never thought it would or could.

If we hold the video game controller in our hands (becoming consciously aware -- waking up) we can affect the "reality" that exists on the screen displaying the video game (life). There are parts of the game (life) we cannot change, sure, but we can affect the character or avatar (human body) that we do control. While playing a video game, we can make the character affect the "reality" within the game; this is exactly how "real" life works too: we can take control of our human body (character in the game) and do with it whatever we like, and we can affect the "reality" (holographic virtual reality video game) that we find ourselves in -- called the "real world".

Create Your Own Reality

People talk about "creating your own reality", yes we do -- but not in the way people tend to think. You create your own reality by choosing what you do, and how you react and respond to the unchangeable aspects of your life. You probably can't manifest a million dollars out of thin air like the Federal Reserve does; you can, however, with enough work, time, dedication, discipline, and perseverance, influence reality and nudge it in the direction you want it to go ... you probably can't manifest a million dollars, but you probably can manifest a life of abundance.

We have to continuously express our intention, and consistently follow that up with action -- that is what eventually leads to the manifestation of our desires. Manifesting reality is not a quick process, neither is changing our lives; these things are slow, laborious, and generally take a long time ("patience is a virtue").

We create our own personal reality, but we do not create the base structure of the collective reality (The Matrix): we all see the same Sun, Moon, sky, ocean, tree, bird, car, etc... because those things are part of the base construct of the virtual reality game that we cannot control, but we create our own personal reality by controlling how our character (human body) will respond to it. Some people don't care about the Moon at all, others spend their whole life studying it -- this is what is meant by "we create our own reality".

You can decide to have a bad time or a good time; you can let what is wrong defeat you or you can rise above it -- it is all up to you.

"A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence." - James Watkins ... that, is how we create our own reality -- persistence. And we must persist.

How are you going to spend your time?

People make excuses all the time, while others sail through life undaunted in the face of anything -- persist or fail -- that is the choice. You can have a good life or a bad one; you get to decide.

There is someone, right now, who has it worse than you, but they spend their time being thankful and grateful for whatever life they have had the opportunity to experience. How do you spend your time; do you spend it as carefully as you spend your money? You can never get back spent time; one day it runs out -- don't waste it.

Some people have the best of everything and more money in the bank than any of the rest of us will ever see, but hate themselves and experience no happiness in their lives; they spend every second of their pathetic lives in absolute misery. Why would anyone ever choose to spend their time that way? They must not realize that its all an illusion; if they realized it was a game that they had control of, maybe they wouldn't be so sad.

Collective Reality/Individual Reality

There absolutely are unchangeable aspects of the reality we experience; let's not forget that. Let us also always be aware that some of those unchangeable aspects of reality are going to be negative, but how we respond to them is always up to us. All of us experience the collective reality, but we each have our individual personal experience within that reality.

The collective reality is as Morpheus described The Matrix: “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us ... 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 ... you are a slave. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage ... into a prison that you cannot taste, or see, or touch -- a prison for your mind.”

That ... is the collective reality we are part of, but our individual reality can be much different than that. The entire collective reality is just like The Matrix; when our brain/body decodes the information, it appears to be outside of us -- but it's not, not in the form we experience it anyway.

The truth: there is nothing "out there"; there is only "in here".

There is no Spoon

Scientists who work in quantum physics have suggested that nothing actually exists until it is observed to exist. This can be easily understood if we use a digital video as an example: the screen does not display all of the information contained within the file all at the same time; it only displays the information that is being decoded at that moment. This is exactly how our brain/body decodes reality: the screen only shows the information that is to be observed at any given time -- the rest of the file is just digital code. That is exactly how the human brain/body brings our perceived reality into existence.

Interesting to consider: inside the brain is complete darkness; no light at all gets in there -- if it does you might be having an emergency! So then, if no "light" gets into the brain, how do we "see" light? There is no light in the brain; how does it get in there? It is because there is no "light" -- it doesn't exist! What you perceive to be light is what your brain/body decoding system created, out of the vibrational waveform information it was able to perceive. "Do not try and bend the spoon, that's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth ... there is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself." - The Matrix. The only place that light (the spoon) exists, in that form, is in our minds.

Miracles can only happen when you realize that it's all an illusion, and how to "bend yourself"; when you realize that, you can do anything. "Miracles" are nothing more than things that go beyond what we have been conditioned to believe is possible; what happens when we change what we believe is possible? Is that when miracles become reality? How do people survive the most dire of circumstances unharmed? How do people rip open metal car doors with their bare hands to save a life? How do people fall from great heights and live? How do people walk through fire and not get burned? There are never-ending examples and instances of people doing things that they should not have been able to do; people have done all kinds of stuff that's supposed to be impossible. This all has to do with what is believed to be possible...

Belief Affects Physical Reality

There is something in the medical field called the "placebo effect": this is when a patient is given a fake medicine, but they believe they have been given the real one and therefore experience the same effects as if they had been given the real medicine; these patients actually get well, exactly the same as they would have if they had been given the real medication -- this is proof: belief affects physical reality ... period. The same is true for people who believe whatever is wrong with them can only get worse -- they get worse, because they believed it was the only possibility. Henry Ford: “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right" -- it all has to do with what we believe to be possible and impossible.

If we believe ourselves to be Eternal Infinite Conscious Awareness having an experience within All Possibility ... what could ever be "impossible"?

All Possibility

Mind and Consciousness are two distinctly different things: Consciousness is All Possibility -- ALL -- that is, was, and ever will be; Mind is the physical brain ... and that's it. Mind is extremely limited, but the All-Knowing of Eternal Consciousness is infinite.

Mind is mandatory for us to function in this reality (The Matrix), but without Consciousness, it is about as useful as a computer that has been disconnected from the internet. The capabilities of computers that are not connected to the internet are vastly inferior to the capabilities of computers that are connected to the internet. Mind is like a computer that's been disconnected from the internet; it's little more than a word processor! Consciousness is what happens when the computer connects to the internet -- there is no comparison between the two. Imagine, your whole life, experiencing life as a disconnected computer terminal -- this is how most people spend their lives! It's time for the human race to connect to the internet -- to Consciousness -- so that we can remember who we are, what we are, where we are, when we are, and why we are here.

Ramana Maharshi: “Mind is consciousness which has put on limitations. You are originally unlimited and perfect. Later you take on limitations and become the mind.”

Albert Einstein: "A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us ... Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison.”

You are not your name, race, sexuality, gender, nationality, religion, job, title, or anything else that you appear to be in the physical world that is The Matrix! "YOU", are All Possibility, Infinite Consciousness, Eternal Awareness -- ALL, that ever was, is, or can be ... that is what you are! You can do anything you wanna do and you can be anything you wanna be -- everything you have ever needed is already inside of you!

All Possibility is still and silent; all spiritual traditions tell us that we must be "still and silent" through some type of meditation or prayer -- that idea comes from understanding All Possibility, and how to connect to it.

At the core of our existence is perfect stillness and beautiful silence -- nothingness. Try to think of nothing, "no-thing" -- it seems that it must be impossible for "no-thing" to exist, but within All Possibility "nothing" has to exist. Nothing/Something - Everywhere/Nowhere - Existence/Nonexistence - Unknowing/All-knowing: these things are not contradictions -- they are mandatory components of All Possibility. All Possibility means that every possibility and no possibility must always and never be present at the same time, at different times, and at no time at all. It is like the color black: it absorbs all of the colors and reflects none of them back to the eye; this means, within black exists all color -- within still silent nothingness exists ... All Possibility. If there is silence, all sound is possible; a sound is one possibility, out of All Possibility -- when silence returns, All Possibility returns. We think things are defined by the "something" that they are, but they are equally defined by the "nothing" within the "something". Houses are only houses because of the "empty space" (the no-thing) between the walls, floor, and ceiling. If that "nothing" was not there, you couldn't even go inside ... there would be no "inside". No-one could ever live in a house that didn't have large areas of "nothing" -- it would just be walls standing side by side! That would not be a house; therefore, things are defined as much, if not more so, by the "no thing" as they are by the "some thing".

The same thing is true about silence: if not for the silence between the sounds, there would only be an incomprehensible never-ending noise -- things like music and talking would not exist If there were no periods of silence. We don't really think about the importance of silence, but it is just as important as sound. People don't like silence though; almost no-one can bear to just be in silence -- they must always have something distracting them from the silence. The instant we get into our cars, we must have music playing; when we are anywhere else, we are consumed by phones, devices, games, TVs, movies, computers ... and whatever else anyone has, but not silence. "Aaaagggghhhh, not that, not silence ... anything but that -- please have mercy on us!" That is how people act! People do not want to be in silence; there always has to be noise, but it is only within the silence that All Possibility waits to be made manifest by those who dream of having a better life and a better world -- a world that is beyond the illusion of reality ... beyond The Matrix.

Don Juan: "We are boundless. The world of objects and so­lidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime."

The Control System wants to keep us in that vicious circle, but when we know what we truly are, we cannot be controlled by anyone and that is why they are so desperate to keep that knowledge from us. The physical body is how Consciousness experiences this reality; if we want to be here we have to be inside of a container of some sort that resonates and vibrates to a frequency that can interact with and be part of this reality, but our body is not what we are -- we are Infinite Eternal Conscious Awareness, having an experience within this reality ... within ... The Matrix.
