Introduction This work is split up into four sections. Firstly it contains an overview of an increasingly popular 'conspiracy theory' relating to a proposed plot to turn the Earth into a 'prison planet', thus chaining us forever to material desires, a life of simply working and consuming! Secondly, a look at how this hidden agenda may be being kept from us and how we are unwittingly being led into assisting in its unfoldment. Thirdly, an overall view of how the Prison Planet is being created. And, finally, and a look at what we can do to stop it. People from a wide variety of social and cultural backgrounds are increasingly willing to take serious the notion that much of what we are taught of our history is some distance from the truth. In accordance with classic conspiracy theory beliefs, they believe that the degree of randomness ascribed to much of what has happened in the last few centuries is excessive. And that, behind the scenes, a coherent negative force is manipulating the events of our lives for its own ends. It is believed that there exists an 'elite cabal' at the apex of banking and industry, operating through government, and controlling our political, social and personal lives to ever-increasing degrees. An elite group that has been pursuing its ambitions for some centuries, and is operating to an agenda entirely not in our interest. A group that has ruthlessly manipulated the political landscape with the goal of rendering all humanity under its centralised control. This being done via a multiplicity of strategies - the stirring up of unrest within countries, thus fuelling revolution; the creating of international situations that lead to wars; and the promotion of globalisation via the technological revolution. A few examples of their work being - the First World War, the Russian Revolution, the Second World War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and the conflict in Kosovo. The overall objective of the group being to take the incredibly diverse range of human cultures existing on Earth and slowly render them into a single, homogenised trading block under centralised control. This cabal has further developed its own prototype of world culture - America. And is now seeking to expand this prototype across the globe, slowly eliminating a wealth of ancient peoples and beliefs and replacing them with a standardised, consumerist stereotype. The ultimate goal being to bring about a single globalised marketplace, controlled by a world government, policed by a world army, financially regulated by a world bank via a single global currency, and populated by a microchipped population connected to a global computer. A computer that both monitors and updates our personal transactions, and regulates our emotional state via transmitted electrical signals - technology that already exists. This ambition of rendering the Earth into a 'prison planet' - a self-contained interactive structure under total centralised control - is chiefly being pursued via the elite's activities in two areas - culture and commerce. In 'commerce' the elite have created the corporations, the 'vehicles' for the planet's enslavement. And in 'culture' the elite have created both the drivers and passengers of those vehicles - us. By formulating a specific set of childrearing practices designed to render innately beautiful and loving human beings into emotionally dependent creatures who will either work for the corporations and need to purchase their products or otherwise find themselves sidelined in structures where they cannot rebel effectively, the elite have created a powerful and ever expanding control vehicle that progressively draws the entire planet under their control. The historical roots of this 'elite cabal' stretch back into the mists of time. But the development of the modern banking system in Middle Ages Europe provides a useful starting point for a look at their activities.

Part One - The World Outside A Brief History of Banking "Let me issue and control a nations money and I care not who writes the laws" - Amshall Rothschild In the recent era, the story commences with the development of the modern banking system in Middle Ages Europe. At this time, individuals with personal assets usually kept them in the form of precious metals - invariably gold or silver. For safety, these were kept in the vaults of the local goldsmith, receipts for deposits being issued. Financial transactions would require the buyer to withdraw his gold and give it to the seller, who would them deposit it again, frequently with the same goldsmith. This was obviously a time-consuming process, and so it became common practice for people to simply exchange receipts when conducting financial transactions. And smiths began to issue receipts for specific values of gold, thus making buying and selling easier still. The smiths receipts became the first banknotes. The goldsmiths, now fledgling bankers, noticed that at any one time only a small proportion of the gold held with them was being withdrawn. And so they hit upon the idea of issuing more of the receipt notes themselves, notes that did not refer to any actual deposited wealth. By giving these receipts to people seeking capital; in the form of loans, the goldsmiths could thus use the money deposited with them by others to make money for themselves. It was found that for every unit of gold held by the smith, ten times the sum could be issued as notes without anyone usually becoming the wiser. So, if a goldsmith held, say, 100 units of other peoples gold in his vaults, he could issue banknotes to the value of 1000 units! And as long as no more than 10 percent of the holders of those notes wanted their gold at any one time, no-one would be realise the fraud being perpetrated. This practice, known as fractional reserve lending, continues to this day and, believe it or not, is the backbone of the modern banking industry! Banks typically loan ten times their actual financial holdings, meaning 90% of the money they lend does not now, never has, and never will exist! These loans had to be paid back to the goldsmiths with interest, meaning non-existent money slowly became converted to tangible assets in the form of goods and labour. And should the loan be defaulted upon, the banker had the right to seize the defaulters property. As time passed, therefore, the banks became wealthier and wealthier, for they were allowed to create money out of thin air and then convert this money to real goods, labour, or property. A loan of money at 12% interest recouped not merely 12% for the banker, but 112%! As it does to this day. As the industrial era began, so the potential for exploitation increased exponentially. The bankers' ability to loan money created out of thin air and then recoup the loans as tangible assets with interest enabled them to begin to control whole industries to the point where the worlds of banking and industry became, to all intents and purposes, a seamless entity; headed usually by an extended family, and exerting such influence that the various monarchies and fledgling governments of the time began to seem quite powerless by comparison. The creation of the banking & industrial elite had begun. To still further increase their power and influence, the elite would employ agent provocateurs to stir up unrest between countries by buying influence with politicians or advisors to monarchies. And then lend vast sums of money to the same governments or monarchies so that the resulting wars could be waged. Any armaments purchased being manufactured by the industrial wing of the banking-industrial cartel. By regulating the loan of money and the delivery of weapons to individual nations, so the outcome of any conflict could be effectively controlled. Monarchies could also be destabilised by causing poverty within nations and again using agent provocateurs to fuel the desire for revolution. With such power it was now easy to control the fledgling governments of Europe and ensure that only those politicians who would do the will of the elite would come to power. By periodically restricting the money supply, crashes within the emergent stock exchanges of the world could easily be engineered. One notable example being the Wall St Crash of 1929. What the history books don't tell you is that, in a crash, wealth is not actually destroyed, merely transferred. The Crash of '29 allowed the most powerful of the banking and industrial families to absorb the weaker elements, providing even greater levels of centralised control. Furthermore, by buying up TV stations and newspapers, so the mass media was created and controlled, ensuring that only a portrayal of events that suited the elite's interests would get to public attention.

Government The vision we're usually given of how political power is manifest in our society typically runs something like this: Government at the apex; banking, industry, media and military, as separate entities, beneath; and the people beneath this. However, a basic independent examination of the history of this power structure's development is more likely to reveal the following arrangement: extended family elite groups controlling seemingly separate fields of banking and industry at the apex; government beneath facilitating the wishes of this hierarchy; the military or police enforcing those wishes where necessary; the media beneath portraying the work of the government to the people as "democracy in action"; and the people beneath this. From this it can be seen that the truthful role of government is simply to facilitate the wishes of the elite group. This notion is reinforced when one considers that we don't get to actually pick who becomes our political representative. This task is undertaken by the party hierarchy. Neither do we get to pick the policies our representative will pursue, this also being under the control of the party. We just get to vote for representatives of the various political parties. Furthermore, who gets where in any political party is entirely controllable by the party. To say this system is open to abuse is something of an understandstatement.

America The creation of the United States of America represents the pinnacle of the elite's ambitions for world domination. In many ways, the creation of the United Kingdom, a simple, self-replicating, class-based society, can be regarded as the elite's first experiment in social control. But it was soon clear that this excessively repressive regime could never be expanded to form the basis of a prototype for world culture. And a new front was needed. What better for this purpose than to set up an entirely new country and allow it to evolve under your direct guidance and control? America is therefore, in essence, a prototype for world consumer culture. By encouraging a broad base of racial groups to settle and develop under their constant control, the elite have been able to slowly direct the natural evolution of a form of social order that humans from any background can adapt to, without a significant number of them becoming sufficiently dissociated to actually take up arms and overthrow the system. Aided of course by a highly repressive justice system, backed with the largest prison population on the planet. And, now that the technological revolution has facilitated the expression of American cultural values across the world, America is, in effect, expanding until the 50 states actually encompass the whole globe, in all but name. Our planet is slowly becoming America. America is the ultimate control fantasy - consensual incarceration. Whole groups of people slowly drawn to believe there's no other way of existing securely together than to give up their liberty bit by bit, to believe that true freedom is actually the giving up of freedom.

World War II The Second World War is probably the most stunning recent example of just how suspect taught history really is. This conflict, which cost the lives of tens of millions of people, was entirely manipulated into being by the elite banking and industrial cartels described above. The question our history teachers at school were unwilling to answer was "How was it that a country as utterly bankrupt as Germany in the 20's and 30's could afford to wage full out European war on so many fronts?" Hitler rose to power in a country so economically crippled by reparations from the previous war that going into another should have been absolutely inconceivable. But the banking elite agreed the loan of billions of dollars, and furthermore set up a vast industrial complex, (much of it I.G.Farben - a Standard Oil subsidiary), within Germany to manufacture the vast amounts of tanks, planes, arms and munitions necessary to wage European war. Oil supplies were agreed, lines of credit extended and the war machine spent nearly the whole of the decade churning out weaponry whilst the rest of the country remained in abject poverty thus fuelling the desire for war. The whole thing was a set-up from start to finish, as even a cursory examination of history will confirm. And the millions of deaths that resulted were seen by the elite as a sacrifice necessary to achieve greater levels of European homogeny and centralised control. This war, and the version of it we're taught in school, is merely one of numerous examples of the way the elite have come to increasingly control our lives. The Third

World "Conquered states.....can be held by the conqueror in three different ways. The first is to ruin them, the second for the conqueror to go and reside there in person and the third is to allow them to continue to live under their own laws, subject to a regular tribute, and to create in them a government of the few who will keep the country friendly to the conqueror." - Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince. Here we look at the elite's ambitions in the Southern Hemisphere, or so-called 'third world'. All across Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America the elite have again pursued unrelentingly the ambition of destabilising a multitude of individual cultures and creating a series of homogenised trading blocks. In recent years this task has been undertaken by the International Monetary Fund, (the IMF), but the story commences many years before. Colonisation by the European empire builders from the sixteenth century onwards and the later granting of 'independence' to conquered territories led slowly to the forging of individual nation states with central governments. To ensure that the government be a puppet of the elite, agent provocateurs and dubious Western government agencies worked to displace any leaders who showed democratic tendencies and replaced them with elite puppets from local communities and their extended families. To maintain these hated and corrupt regimes in power, the elite-controlled Western banks lent vast sums of money to these "governments" to enable them to form armies, frequently with foreign troops, and thus prevent the people of the country from wresting power. In addition, loans were granted to purchase weapons, (for waging various regional wars stirred up by elite agent provocateurs using techniques like "shuttle diplomacy"), and to build immense palaces for the elite puppets to reside in. In the early 70's the elite-manipulated Yom Kippur war resulted in a massive rise in oil prices. The whole world found itself paying vastly increased rates for petrol, and the resulting massive profits made by the oil-producing nations were invested back with the elite-controlled Western banks. Relying on the ever-popular tactic of loaning at least ten times their reserves, the banks now had insane sums of money to lend. And with the 'third world' countries compelled to pay vastly increased sums for their oil, as well as service the debts already incurred by their puppet leaders, further massive loans were advanced to them in a banking strategy that came to be known as "petrodollar recycling". The Western banks would send youthful reps across the world offering gigantic loans to anyone in power who wanted them. Loans of money created out of thin air and tied by agreement to the recipient buying weapons, machinery or goods from industrial or military clients of the banking cartel offering the money. In the 1980's the bubbles began to burst. The Mexican debt crisis being the first of many 'days of reckoning'. The World Bank and IMF, elite-manufactured organisations created in the 1940s to 'stimulate the conditions of world trade', now stepped in. They offered 'adjustments' - strategies for repayment that involved the countries concerned adopting economic 'austerity' programmes and commencing industrial production of Western goods and consumer products.

To commence industrial production the countries had to take out further loans and buy plant from - the industrial clients of the banking cartels. And to generate sufficient power for the new industries they had to hire companies to build hydroelectric power plants, (usually with dams that required the expulsion of many local people); or nuclear reactors, (which frequently were too unsafe to use, notably the Philippines' US$2 billion reactor which never produced a single watt) - companies that were again the heavy industry clients of the banking cartels. The IMF debt rescheduling practices enforced on the countries experiencing major problems paying back their loans, (problems entirely generated by the elite via their control of world interest rates and oil prices), compelled the 'third world' nations, one after another, to commence manufacturing goods, not for themselves, but for sale on the world markets. Here, in the emergent global marketplace, they had to compete with each other in a highly competitive market over which they had no control. Indeed, the only factor in the IMF equation that the Southern hemisphere countries could control was the cost of labour. The result being cheaper goods for Western consumers, and greater poverty for workers in the 'third world'. All across the Southern hemisphere small farmers were forced away from planting crops for themselves, and driven to plant crops for export, hoping they'd get paid enough to survive. In the 80's, runaway inflation stimulated by Reaganomics in America, (the arrangement of vast loans for US spending on military and space projects that sent world interest rates skyrocketing), began to force many local people out of the countryside altogether, and drove them into the newly created cities where they vied with each other for work in the newly built factories. Thus leading to the destruction of traditional ways of life for millions upon millions. Emergent drug cartels, invariably under the direction of government agencies like the CIA, began to flood the cities and industrial areas with cheap drugs, hooking those with jobs deeper into a life of wage slavery. And those without into lifelong street-level delinquency, fuelling social problems. In addition, grain crops, previously used for bread, would be diverted to the production of alcohol for the relocated populations. Social problems unheard of a generation before became epidemic in proportion all across Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. Alcoholism, drug addiction, crime, unemployment, violence against women, poverty and malnutrition, to name but a few. In Brazil, one of biggest food exporters in the world, approaching half a million children die annually from malnutrition or hunger-related diseases. (Journalists and economists investigating the debt problems of "third world" countries invariably start by believing that the chaotic and destructive situation that confronts them has been arrived at simply through the naivety and greed of the Western banking institutions. And that the IMF, the World Bank and the elite financial and industrial conglomerates are just being unrealistic in trying to get their original loans and interest payments back. Invariably however, at some stage in their research, the truth begins to dawn on them.

They realise that the banks never had any intention of recovering the money loaned or the interest owed. And that the whole exercise has simply been undertaken to compel thousands of self-sufficient agricultural communities to be drawn into industrial wage slavery in the global export markets). Meanwhile, in early 90's Europe and the US, the spectre of such Western capitalist greed proved increasingly disturbing for the people buying the goods thus created. And so the elite came up with 'green-washing' - the media driven means by which images of change within the Southern hemisphere are bombarded upon the Western viewer, convincing them 'the system' is adapting to moral pressure from Western citizens. News broadcasts accepted that previous practices had been exploitative but that, post Live Aid and similar, things were changing and any residual problems were entirely the fault of the poorer nations themselves or the weather. Something that anyone who has made even the most primitive study of modern 'third world' politics will know is quite untrue. The previous 'evil capitalists', the Reagans and Thatchers, were removed from power and replaced by consumer-friendly mouthpieces of the elite - the Clintons and the Blairs. On UK TV at the time of writing, one BBC programme features former Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell, entering the worlds shanty towns and meeting crowds of poor but happy looking children jumping up and down. Thus generally promoting the image of gradual change and improvement. What the programme neglects to reveal is that in many of the 'third world's shanty towns children now have a less than 50% chance of making it to their first birthday. Infant mortality rates are rising steadily throughout the Southern hemisphere, despite the efforts of the UN and WHO to massage the figures. And for those lucky enough to reach the grand old age of 5, the only prospects they have to look forward to is a life of begging, street crime or child prostitution. There is literally nothing else. The world's population is currently estimated at around 6 billion people, 3 billion of who are living in poverty. And 1 billion of this group existing at near starvation level. For the majority of the world's citizens life now is demonstrably worse than at any time in recorded history.

The Future - Chips with Everything? So, if there really was a coherent body organising all of this, what would their motivation be? And, where might all this be leading? The primary motivation behind all elite activities is the desire for control. It's the base desire to control everything. To take a vast, dynamic planet-full of people; different races, different beliefs, different lives; and render them into a single homogenised unit, under your central control. This is what truly motivates the elite. To bring about this highly negative state of affairs, the elite must be active on two fronts simultaneously - the world outside and the world inside, the planet and the mind. In the 'world outside', the objective the elite are working toward is globalisation, the creation of three vast interlocked markets centred on America, Europe and Asia, followed by their full integration into a single trading block. A global marketplace peopled with consumer-workers and serviced at the lower end via third world debt. In the 'world inside', the plan is to get all humanity microchipped.

For despite a multiplicity of control tactics currently being imposed on us; things like mortgages, credit cards, street surveillance systems and pharmaceutical antidepressants; people still have a basic level of personal freedom. Though it's getting harder to do so, we can still walk out of consumerism and embark on a new life. But if we're chipped, this won't happen. For scientists' knowledge of neuroscience is now such that, by having a microchip the size of a grain of rice implanted inside our body, we can be regulated at an emotional level. By gaining control over our body's receptor-ligand network, our emotional state can be manipulated by electrical signals, either as a part of a chip's program or via remote signalling. Thus creating a perfect consumer workforce. Work, buy, procreate, sleep - a life stripped down to materialism and survival, without any unpleasant emotions to get in the way. So, the question for the elite is, how do they get people to get the chips fitted? And make sure that they aren't removed? For, even though our planet has advanced considerably along the road to becoming a world consumerist superstate, most people are still highly resistant to the idea of having a chip put under their skin. There is therefore a progressive strategy that will be gradually implemented to lead us, step by step, into permitting this nightmare future to come about. It will unfold in three stages. First - the removal of cash. Second - the placing of all personal and financial data on individual 'smartcards'.

Thirdly, the gradual elimination of smartcards to be replaced by personal microchips. The only way of getting people to accept being chipped is for them to believe it is necessary. Bank details, credit ratings, employment status and similar information can all easily be programmed into a chip and updated via remote signal or by passing it across a reader. Therefore, it is first necessary to render all money electronic, and to get people to carry around their personal details on some form of 'smart card' - a credit-card sized device bearing all the details that they need for daily transactions. Once this is achieved, any number of problems can be manufactured within the smartcard system such that people will need to get the chip actually put inside their body if they are to be able to conduct transactions safely. Removing cash from our society. For the past twenty years we have been slowly led towards giving up cash in favour of electronic money. And in the last ten the heat has been turned up. The increased promotion of credit cards, phone banking, mail order and internet shopping have all, in part, helped to bring about a society where the need for cash transactions is greatly reduced. Yet most people still like carrying cash. More will have to be done if cash is to be eliminated completely. One strategy may be the introduction of new, multinational currencies not available as cash. The Euro, the currency for the European Union, may be such a thing. Another very likely possibility is that cash will be removed from our society on the pretext of eliminating the illicit drug trade. Many cities now have around 1% of their population injecting heroin daily. (In some UK cities it is approaching 2%). This, along with crack cocaine usage, is proving a near intolerable social burden for people who live in the areas affected. Drug-related crime is at an all-time high and the public increasingly crying out for something to be done. If cash were eliminated, anonymous illicit transactions for small sums would not be possible. With electronic money, the identities of the buyer and seller of any article are recorded on computer, and should a transaction be for an illicit substance it could be instantly traced. Although illicit drugs come into our countries in vast shipments, they are nearly all ultimately sold in small amounts at or near street level. Remove cash and drug dealers could be instantly traced. (Reading this, you might well think that removing cash would actually be quite a good idea if it got rid of the illicit drug trade! But, think a little deeper.

Regardless of the possibility of later being microchipped, do you really believe our governments are doing all they can about drugs? To create heroin or cocaine, vast areas of land must be given over to the cultivation of their plant sources. Thousands of farmers in the more remote parts of SE Asia and Latin America have to spend their lives cultivating these crops. Vast tanker loads of precursor chemicals must be shipped into remote areas to convert the raw coca or opium into cocaine or heroin. And whole financial networks established to launder the billions of dollars revenue the trade generates annually. We live in a world where our governments can mobilise hundreds of thousands of troops to fight a war to allegedly protect our oil supply, (the Gulf War), yet are apparently powerless to prevent groups of peasant farmers and third world gangsters from poisoning our children to death. Sit down and think about it for a moment. Does it really seem likely? We have satellite tracking systems capable of locating a single opium poppy growing in a field, and capable of detecting an illicit lab manufacturing heroin or cocaine from the plant sources. There are in fact UN departments fully able to eliminate drugs like heroin and cocaine at source, via crop-replacement schemes and similar, as was recently revealed at a major conference in New York attended by some 160 world leaders and their representatives. The United States refused to finance the plan, and not a word of it was reported in the European media.) If the 'drug war' is going to be used to assist in the outlawing of cash, one of the first signs will likely be moves to legalise soft drugs like marijuana. For the smoking of cannabis is the primary cash-based illicit activity that people indulge in, and so the prospect of having this pleasure withdrawn from them would inevitably create considerable opposition to any plan to outlaw cash. In addition, marijuana legalisation would create the appearance of policy-softening on behalf of government, when the opposite is really going on; and the stress-relieving effects of cannabis-smoking are useful to further anaesthetise people to what is really going on around them. Whatever strategies are eventually employed, whilst cash is being eliminated and the creation of a global society being pursued, there will be an assortment of 'distraction' tactics used to keep the Western public unaware of what is really going on. And, simultaneously, 'softening-up' strategies employed via the media. The economic system will likely be deliberately manipulated to create a society in which hard work is seen to go hand in hand with hard play. A high daily workload backed up with a myriad distractions, soft drugs and diverse recreational activities creates the feeling of living life to the full and ensures that there is little time for contemplation of what is really going on behind it all. And for those who aren't working - crime, hard drugs and constant media bombardment with images of opulence intended to increase feelings of lack of self-worth, and to stimulate the desire to succeed. Another distraction tactic will likely be the promotion of hedonism, via the constant bombardment of sexually stimulating material through the media, and the legalisation of soft drugs like cannabis and ecstasy. The 'softening-up' process will likely proceed via a steady trickle of media stories relating to microchipping and globalisation. Stories relating how some scientist says that in the future we won't have to carry wallets around, it will all be on a chip installed in the wrist. Or tales of how much better life will be for everyone once we're all one global community. Such stories will usually make it seem that microchipping and globalisation are inevitabilities, that they have already been decided. Once cash has been eliminated from a country or region, by whatever means, and all money has become electronic, the next step on the road to microchipping will be taken.

People will be increasingly drawn into giving up the multiplicity of cards they are carrying around; credit cards, bank cards, ID cards and similar; and have them replaced with a single 'smartcard'. The 'smartcard' will perform all the functions of the other cards, and thus act as an interface between the holder and the increasingly global superstate. With the smartcards increasingly in use, and cash gone, what will likely happen is that problems will suddenly begin to mysteriously occur within the electronic money system. People will occasionally find their money disappearing into thin air. Computer errors and fraud within the system will appear rife. Throughout this time the 'softening-up' process will have been continuing. By now, there will likely be whole groups of people within society who have already been chipped. Criminals, the mentally ill and military personnel being three likely targets. Chipping will be portrayed as the socially positive thing to do via a multiplicity of media techniques. And, furthermore, having your ID and financial records placed on a chip inside your body will become renowned as the only safe way to keep your records safe from interference. There may well be encryption technology available on the personal chip that, for some reason, won't be available on the smartcard. By now the media will be pushing personal chips frenziedly. Small children will go missing in high profile cases on the daily news, then be found 'because they were chipped'. Young peoples TV will be especially targeted. Getting chipped will be seen as a 'cool' thing to do, with a vast array of different chip features available to order. Getting chipped will be seen as synonymous with 'getting ahead' and attracting members of the opposite sex. The media will spare no effort ensuring that the negative aspects of getting chipped, such as feeling like a robot, are expelled from our minds. To still further intensify the drive to get the public chipped, large corporations will begin to make it a prerequisite for persons working for them.

Likely under the guise of it being their contribution to a creating a positive society. By this time the multinational corporations of today, big as they already are, will have been transformed into transnational giants; astride the world like statues of Colossus; controlling vast sectors of the earth's resources and meeting them out according to their masters schedule. (And with a vast and continuous PR job making it all appear completely consensual). Virtually everything purchased will be from a multinational corporation, and nearly all employment opportunities will involve working for one. With cash gone and no way of bringing it back, and the credit card, ID card and even smartcard systems increasingly falling into disrepair, life will begin to seem pretty bleak for those persons not chipped. Pretty soon, not being chipped will effectively mean you are not capable of working for a regular wage in any but the most menial job. There will of course initially still be a large black-market operating at varying degrees outside the law and trading in a wide variety of licit and illicit substances.

But, as chipping proceeds all across Western society, and becomes seen as being as natural as paying tax, so the State will increasingly make moves to attack illicit activity. With the moral backing of the microchipped population, engineered by the media, so those persons not chipped will increasingly be marginalised in the same way the homeless are now - forced to the edges of society and left to fend for themselves in an environment of poverty, drug addiction, sexual exploitation and crime. And, with chipping now finally accepted as being an integral part of life in the 21st century, the next stage will be implemented. The introduction of chips that can regulate aspects of our body's function. Self regulation of our body and mind will be seen as a new and convenient means of treating any number of complaints ranging from depression to minor flesh wounds. No need to take tablets or call up the doctor, just programme your chip to do it for you. Scientists are now sufficiently knowledgeable about our body's electrical system and ligand-receptor networks that they can superficially alter many of our natural emotional functions. By changing the way our body metabolises serotonin, for example, the symptoms of depression can be relieved. The problem is that doctors frequently don't understand why our body is behaving differently. Many scientists believe that things like depression are themselves merely symptoms of deeper problems that need addressing. With chips capable of altering a whole range of neurochemical functions, we will increasingly have the ability to emotionally self-regulate ourselves.

And there will thus be an inevitable temptation to try and cut negativity entirely out of our lives, to program ourselves to never feel down. From a health perspective this could be disastrous for negative emotions are frequently just symptoms of deeper problems that require attention. Scientists know the health risks of ignoring what our emotions are trying to say to us. Trying to block out negativity by altering our body's neurochemical functioning could lead to the rapid onset of numerous complex degenerative conditions, the presence of which will likely not be recognised - until it is too late. And quite apart from the health aspects, giving people the means to easily emotionally self-regulate themselves could lead to the 'prozac generation' becoming global. People will become obsessed with feeling good about themselves all the time. And anything that threatens to interfere with that feeling will be ignored. Wars, starvation, political upheavals and global tyranny will all become just 'other peoples problems'.

Nothing to do with us - until it happens in our own backyard. And, with nearly everyone in the West using microtechnology to block negativity, who's going to notice if one day the chips seem to start regulating themselves? No longer requiring us to actually programme changes into them, but seemingly doing it all without our help. Thus no longer even allowing us access to our true feelings if we wanted them. This nightmare scenario seems like something out of science fiction. But think closely and you will see that it could actually be with us within a generation. And all achieved bit by bit. Step by step, we may be being led into a place where no-one, if they thought about it, would ever willingly go. And without means of escape.

Part Two - The World Inside Hiding the Plot If we imagine for a moment that the world is being run by an elite cabal at the apex of banking and industry, we can ask the question - how might such a group seek to prevent us from discovering their true level of power? For we are intelligent and inquisitive creatures by nature. We crave input and stimulation, and it would appear impossible that a truth of this magnitude could be hidden from us for any length of time. As we shall see, it is actually quite simple. The 'conditioning' process that we typically undergo as children not only causes us to divert from our natural behaviour. But also from our natural thinking patterns. So, in the second half of this piece, we shall be looking at how a 'typical Western childhood' can subconsciously render us - addicted to material pleasures and the quest for personal power; resistant to information which contradicts what we believe we already know, and impervious to natural self-healing. And all without us being aware of it!

Conditioning Conditioning takes place via the process of us repeatedly being compelled to block natural behaviour patterns. Conditioning is what happens to us whenever our parents, teachers or society, compel us to behave in a way that is not natural to us, be it for our own good of otherwise. In order to understand how conditioning occurs and what the long-term effects can be, it is necessary to look briefly at something called the repression response. At the age of about 10 weeks the foetus begins to become aware of its environment. And it simultaneously develops a basic mechanism to protect itself from potentially damaging events in its new world. This mechanism is the repression response. Everything that is occurring around us is constantly being monitored by our subconscious mind, at a level below our conscious awareness. When something happens that the subconscious mind does not know how to deal with, it activates the repression response.

This response blocks our full awareness of the event and further suppresses the expression of any pain which may be associated with it. We therefore do not fully experience what it was that happened and do not express the emotions that may be associated. The key to understanding the repression response is to understand that it is only activated when we encounter a situation our instincts cannot handle. The intention of the subconscious mind is to block our awareness of the event until such time as it is safe for us to experience what it was that happened, and express the pain associated. To ensure that our conscious mind does not accidentally come across the block of memory and unexpressed pain before this time, it covers it over with layers of anxiety. By doing this, our subconscious mind ensures that should we experience anything that symbolically reminds us of the painful memory, we suddenly experience anxiety, and quickly move away. Now let's look at conditioning. Conditioning begins to take place whenever our natural desire for freedom of expression is restricted by our parents or other adults charged with our care. This usually happens via our parents only giving us affection when our behaviour is deemed 'good'; and withdrawing this affection when our behaviour is deemed 'bad'.

Parents typically condition their children because the overwhelming majority of cultural influences they're exposed to tell them it must be done or their offspring will not grow up to be 'civilised human beings'. Conditioning our children is seen as being completely natural and absolutely necessary. The process of 'conditioning' children; compelling them to divert from their natural behaviour pattern, for whatever reason; when it first occurs will cause the initiation of the repression response. We will develop a little block of memory and pain surrounded by anxiety. The conditioning action could be anything. Perhaps our reaching out for food because we are hungry and having our hand gently slapped. The little block will be reinforced the first few times the action of conditioning occurs. And then we will learn. We will learn that if we wish to avoid the feeling of anxiety that now happens when we think of eating when our parents do not wish us to eat, we must adopt the changes in behaviour the conditioning is intended to induce. But, in doing so, the memory and pain that is associated with the original experience of the conditioning remains repressed. It remains hidden away surrounded by anxiety in our subconscious mind. We have seen that parents condition us by giving us affection when we are 'good' and withhelding it when we are 'bad'. This withholding of affection is used for a reason. For conditioning to take place, the repression response must be activated. And the repression response is only activated when we encounter a situation that our instincts cannot handle. Instinct is passed on to us via our genes. And our genes tell us we will be brought up in a totally nuturing environment. We are thus biologically preconditioned to expect our parents to shelter us, feed us, allow us personal freedom and protect us throughout our childhood - in short to unconditionally love us.

When parental love is withheld therefore, the repression response is activated, because our instincts have no other means of dealing with the situation. This is why the withholding of affection is so effective at achieving conditioning. Our need for unconditional love is as deep as our need for shelter and nourishment. Indeed, many psychologists now believe that our need for unconditional love is even stronger than our need to stay alive. This is indicated by the way that adults who did not experience much affection in childhood will frequently allow themselves to die to save another, or for a political or religious cause. The need to believe we could be loved, if necessary after our death, outweighing the need to remain alive. When affection is withheld in order to condition us, therefore, the repression response is activated. The memory of the withholding of affection is repressed, along with the pain that accompanies it. And to ensure that they stay repressed, they are covered over with anxiety. This anxiety will be the result of what mental processing took place before repression. And the anxiety we experience when we first do not receive parental love is the fear that our parents do not love us, that we are innately unlovable. This is the deepest and darkest fear accessible to humans, and it is thus always repressed. Our early experiences of not receiving affection are therefore held in the deepest and darkest recesses of our subconscious. As children growing up in the West, we are all therefore becoming adults carrying around the deepest and darkest fear available to human beings - the fear that we cannot be loved. And yet, because this fear is so deeply repressed we are completely unaware that we are doing so. Now let's look at what happens when we start to hold onto too much repressed material. If all the accumulating memories and pain repressed in our minds are not cleared out, then as we grow up we will increasingly begin to experience stress. This occurs because each time something happens around us that in any way reminds our subconscious mind of a repressed memory, we receive a little burst of anxiety warning us to keep away. When this starts to happen, we will find that whole areas of natural thinking and behaviour become painful to us, and so we start to avoid them. This subconscious learning of how to make changes in our natural patterns of thinking and behaviour is known as the adopting of coping strategies. We will look at coping strategies in a minute, but first lets look at the natural mechanism we have developed to deal with the effects of repression and how our culture is not allowing us access to it.

Grieving The repression response remains available to us throughout our lives. But, as we progress through childhood, so we naturally develop a much improved system known as the grieving process. The term 'grieving process' does not apply solely to dealing with the death of a loved one, but to any event that has a negative effect upon us. The process of grieving a painful event runs through several distinct stages and allows the body to re-balance itself at an emotional level and thus soon return to life much as before. It does not involve the storing away of lots of little blocks of pain and memory. And the grieving process proceeds naturally as soon as we become aware of what it is that has happened and express the pain associated. So growing up, we can avoid a life spent adopting coping strategies and experiencing stress if we take steps to progressively uncover any memories repressed within us and express any associated pain. Doing this will initiate the grieving process and we will soon return to feeling calm and in control of our lives. All ancient cultures utilised means of releasing the individual from the effects of trauma or conditioning, usually through regular ritual activity. Some cultures would do this by the having individuals enter into altered states of consciousness, non-ordinary states of mind achieved by drumming, meditation, sacramental plant use or similar, and carried out regularly to ensure the mental and physical health of the group remained stable. Other cultures would have regular festivals where participants would act out character roles, sometimes with the aid of masks or costume, that allowed people to escape sufficiently from their repressed self to release the emotions trapped within. In Greek literature, the god Dionysus tells Man that he must regularly engage in similar activities or else chaos and destruction will descend. It was to the releasing of the effects of trauma and conditioning that he was referring. But with the arrival of our modern era, all these practices have died out. And there is thus a great and unsatisfied need for a regular means to expel the effects of trauma and conditioning from the body and mind. As we shall see, instead of facilitating this, our cultural and social environment nowadays actually patronises the needs of the conditioned mind. It permits expression of the pent-up emotions we feel inside, but because there is no connection to the original context in which they were felt, the relief we experience is only temporary. And the grieving process cannot commence. And as we thus all begin to hold onto too many repressed memories and too much suppressed pain - some caused by our conditioning, some by traumatic events that may have occurred - so anxiety steadily begins to mount up. It causes us to begin to subconsciously adopt coping strategies - changes in thinking and behaviour that help us get through the day without excess anxiety.

Coping Strategies Because our culture denies us access to natural ways of permanently releasing ourselves from the grip of repressed memories and pain, we naturally begin to subconsciously develop coping strategies - changes in behaviour and thinking designed to avoid anxiety-inducing confrontations with repressed material. There are a multitude of such strategies available to the subconscious mind. Coping strategies for all repressed pain exist, but here we shall concentrate on a few examples of those commonly adopted when we fail to experience fully our parents love. As we shall see, these strategies, being adopted subconsciously, frequently affect the most important decisions we shall ever take. Kerry does not remember her father being neglectful toward her as a child. She's only had the one father and so naturally has no way of consciously knowing other fathers may behave differently. Subconsciuosly, Kerry fears that the reason her father didn't love her the way her genes told her he should is because she is innately unlovable.

When Kerry grows up she finds herself drawn to men who are neglectful of her. She marries one such man and spends the next ten years desperately trying to get him to love her more than he appears willing or able to do. Kerry is trying to symbolically recreate the situation of her childhood and reverse the outcome, thus proving to herself that she is not unlovable. Because Mark's mother neglected to show him the affection he needed, later in life he finds himself drawn to pursue women who symbolically represent the maternal figure and attempt to get them to love him. LIke Kerry, Mark is trying to symbolically recreate the situation of his childhood and reverse the outcome, thus proving to himself that he is not unlovable. Paul also was the unlucky non-recipient of his parents unconditional love. He finds himself strongly drawn to pursue material wealth, personal power and sensual pleasures. He desires wealth because he learned as a child that being given things was the way his parents showed love. He needs power because he was not allowed to fully express his feelings as a child. And he desires sensual pleasures because they symbolise love. Paul is trying to protect himself from the thought that he is unlovable. Harry does not recall the high level of control his father exerted over his waking thoughts and activities as a child. He is not consciously aware that having affection withheld each time he deviated from his father's tight schedule was in any way unnatural. And simply assumes that what he experienced was quite normal. As Harry becomes older he becomes attracted to 'conspiracy theories'. He finds something quite compelling in the notion that everything is being controlled by some unseen force and that none of his actions have any personal meaning. Slowly he finds himself drawn away from the world of his school friends and spends his time interacting with other 'conspiracy theorists' on the internet. He never marries and comes to believe this is just part of the conspiracy. In seeking to establish that everything is controlled by some unseen force beyond his influence, Harry is trying to prove that the whole world is run the same way his childhood was run, thus protecting himself from the thought that his father didn't love him because he is unlovable. Susan was another unfortunate who had love withheld whenever her behaviour displeased her parents.

She grew up to be deeply cynical about life. She experiences a deep need to constantly prove to herself and others that life is no fairy story, and disappointment is to be expected. Susan constantly needs to prove to herself symbolically that the tragedy of her childhood was unavoidable and thus come to terms with it. Susan also is trying to protect herself from the thought that she is unlovable. Carol, who sadly suffered the same neglect, became a devout Christian. She finds herself deeply attracted to the idea of a loving entity, the Christian 'God', who never offers any proof of His existence, and who simply demands complete faith. Carol finds such a belief attractive because she never experienced unconditional love from her parents and it is therefore comforting to believe that love is never truly experienced in this life. Carol is also attempting to protect herself from the thought that she is unlovable. Michelle was another sad recipient of childhood conditioning. She works as a hairdresser but finds her mind constantly drifting from her work. When she's at home she finds it difficult to sit still for any length of time. As soon as she sits down, she suddenly thinks of something else she needs to do. Because when Michelle allows her mind to relax for any short while, she finds herself drifting toward the block of fear in her system, her subconscious mind constantly makes her think of something new to do or think about. Michelle is trying to avoid contact with the thought that she is unlovable. Martin was an adopted child. His mother was young and unmarried and her family felt it best that she give Martin up to a family better able to cope with a young child. Sarah, like many girls in the West, was born into a family where the father found himself incapable of expressing much affection toward his children. In fact, Sarah's father was especially neglectful. The absence of proper maternal bonding in Martin's past later caused him to deviate in his natural attitude towards women. He would find women attracted to him, but once he had gone out with them for a short while, his interest would wane and he would quickly move on. Martin's male friends believed he was simply a natural charmer. However, the truth was that whenever Martin found himself progressing beyond the opening stages of a relationship, he would experience increasing agitation at the prospect of becoming closer. For, subconsciously, he knows that at some stage he must open his heart to his girlfriend and his only prior experience of doing this was as a new-born, when he had found that no-one was there to give him love. The pain had been unbearable, and his subconscious mind had therefore hidden it from him, covering it over with the deep fear that no-one was there because he was unlovable. Sarah, like many girls, is very attracted to Martin. Not just because he is good-looking, but because she, like others, picks up subconsciously on the fact that he desperately needs someone who can love him.

She also finds his neglectful attitude to women fascinating, for subconsciously she is seeking someone who represents her father. She wants to symbolically reverse the paternal relationship and believes that if she can just find someone and give him enough love then he will begin to reciprocate, thus proving that her deepest, darkest fear is invalid - the fear that the reason her father didn't adequately love her was because she was innately unlovable. Martin and Sarah thus embark on a completely doomed relationship. As Sarah seeks to get closer to Martin, believing that if she can just give him enough love he will love her in return, so Martin subconsciously recognises that if he lets go completely of his fears and opens his heart up, he could once again experience the terrifying pain of early infancy. He cannot risk experiencing this again and so must retreat. The more she pushes, the more he pulls away. And the more he pulls away, the more her own childhood pain returns causing her to try anything to get close to him. Martin becomes increasingly abusive to Sarah, but she finds she cannot bring herself to leave him. They eventually split up when she finds out he has been sleeping with her friends and they go their separate ways.

He to become increasingly isolated from women to escape his subconscious fears. She to become increasingly isolated from men for fear of repeating her experience with Martin. Martin is trying to avoid confrontation with the fear he is unlovable. Sarah is initially trying to symbolically reverse the experiences of her childhood and thus 'prove to herself' she is not unlovable. Though, after Martin, she too begins simply to avoid. Neither have any idea of what is truly motivating them. Mina, a particularly bright young lady, had a similarly sad time in childhood. Nowadays she works as a teacher at a local school. Her knowledge of a wide range of subjects - science, history, the arts - is phenomenal. She loves to fill her free hours reading of the world and it's history and enjoys discussing issues with her friends. Every now and then, she begins to feel a deep sadness inside but it soon goes away when she finds something to occupy her mind. Mina revels in the infinite complexity of life. When she encounters something that begins to make her feel uneasy emotionally, she finds herself naturally drawn to analysing and dissecting it until she can content herself that things just aren't that simple. Mina is using her left-brain to block encounters with the sadness she feels deep inside.

Her subconscious mind instinctively creates complexity to avoid her having to confront the simplicity of the tragedy that is her life. Mina is trying to avoid contact with the thought that she is unlovable. Alaistair was always a dreamy child. His parents showed him affection, up to a point, but he still often seemed to prefer spending his time lost in a daydream. When he grew up, Alaistair became a novelist. He had always found it easy to create intricate fantasies that would keep him entertained for hours on his own. Sometimes he noticed that elements of the fantasy tended to mirror aspects of his past, and that things that had hurt him would often be played out and reversed in the fantasies created in his mind. But this thought never troubled him for long, he would simply imagine it away. He could fantasise that he was popular so effectively, that he rarely noticed how little his so-called friends cared when he wasn't around for a while. Although he sometimes feels a great sadness inside at his lack of personal relationships, this doesn't trouble him for long as he drifts away into another dream where everybody loves him. Alaistair is both trying to avoid contact with the thought that he is unlovable, and trying to recreate and symbolically reverse repressed conflicts from his past. Peter, whose childhood was similarly tragic, finds himself drawn into a life of crime. For, by 'proving' to himself and others that he is 'bad' he does not have to consider the incredibly painful possibility that the reason he didn't experience unconditional love as a child was because he is 'unlovable'. The thought of being unlovable is the most painful thing his mind can deal with and being 'bad' is infinitely preferable. Paul would rather have nearly everyone in the world think he was 'bad', as long as there was one person that might love him, than be nice to everyone and have to face again the fear that he is unlovable. Paul is attempting to prove to himself that he is not unlovable. Chris' parents had little time to show him true affection. They were both working and when they came home they found themselves simply too tired to listen to him.

After leaving school, Chris drifted quickly into a life of drug addiction. He found that taking heroin daily allowed him to maintain at least some level of emotional stability. Heroin reinforces repression and is frequently used when other coping strategies are failing to keep repressed pain and fear below the level of conscious awareness. Chris is trying to avoid the fear that he is unlovable. In all the situations described above, and many more that could be detailed, it can clearly be seen that major life decisions are being taken, not by the conscious mind, but by the subconscious, through its need to try and deal with the fear that we cannot be loved. None of the above have any idea what it is that is truly motivating their behaviour. And none of these people are doing anything wrong. They are simply completely natural beings whose subconscious mind is trying to cope with unnatural conditioning practices that have been imposed upon them in childhood. Being brought up in a culture that refuses to acknowledge the harm conditioning does; and thus denies the majority access to the numerous ways of removing its effects; they have little choice but to follow the path they have taken. Now let's look at the most basic form of coping strategy that nearly all of us utilise in our efforts to deal with the disappointments of our childhood.

The Persona The overall coping strategy the majority of us employ to help us cope with the disappointing experiences of our childhood is to develop a 'persona'. Our persona is essentially a type of shield. It is a front, a face that we can present to the world behind which we can interact with society free from the fear of experiencing more pain. We've found out that bearing our soul to the world is very dangerous. It tends to get bruised. And so we've naturally learnt to hide behind a front we've specially created for the purpose. One consequence of developing this shield is that we, as children, start to learn to mask our true needs as symbolic needs. We naturally crave our parents unconditional love, but learn quickly not to seek it directly, for fear of re-experiencing the pain that results when it is denied. So instead we grow up learning to crave things that merely represent or symbolise what we truly want. Things like material possessions, personal power, sensual pleasures, and fame. Material possessions symbolise love because we learn that our parents show us love by giving us things. Personal power symbolises love because it means freedom of expression, the withholding of which first occurred when we first experienced our parents not loving us. Sensual pleasures symbolise love because we associate intimacy with love. Fame symbolises love because we associate adoration with love. All these cravings are for things that symbolically represent what we truly need, but are not the actual need itself. And because the true needs are being only symbolically fulfilled, the pleasure experienced proves only temporary. And the craving for more symbols of unconditional love quickly returns. This is the true root of the universal problem of greed. For the child chasing mere symbols of its true wants becomes the adult doing the same. We thus grow up subconsciously compelled to strive for things that merely symbolise what we actually want, and thus don't truly satisfy our needs. And when we don't comprehend the root of our behaviour, we simply assume that we don't have enough and strive for more.

School Our school years are a time when we should be opening up emotionally; learning about the world and understanding what it means to be alive. Instead, most people's recollection of school is that of being subjected to a rigorous indoctrination process whilst immersed in an emotionally repressive environment. Children are educationally 'streamed' - placed in an achievement-based strata - to prevent them 'holding back' others. And those lower down systematically ridiculed and made to feel inadequate. An atmosphere of repression and abuse pervades. And fear of ridicule within our peer group causes us to spend most of our time hiding our true thoughts and feelings, and using all our energy to maintain face. Our shield, the persona, is maintained by self-esteem - the feeling of being emotionally secure in our peer group. And in this hostile and threatening environment, it's not surprising we need our persona to the full. Experiencing a feeling of security within the peer group is vital if the persona is to be held in place. To experience embarrassment in front of ones peers is to experience again the pain and fear of early infancy. And is thus something the subconscious mind will avoid at all costs. One result of all this is a corruption of our innate need to understand the nature of our world. For, from now on, whether or not we accept what we learn will rely not only on whether it makes sense, but on whether believing it would pose a threat to our place within our peer group. We thus become dependent on our beliefs, not only to help us understand the world, but to help maintain self-image, and thus our persona. It is natural therefore that we soon develop a deep need to agree with the taught versions of subjects like history and science. For not to do so would invite ridicule, and thus implicitly lead to a re-experiencing of our early pain and fear.

The Persona and Social Conformity Our need to agree is important, for it explains why the overwhelming majority of us appear so happy to go along with mainstream social convention and belief. And so resistant to conspiracy theories, even if they should be well presented. In fact, even when reading an article in a journal, something that offers little chance of us actually being hurt, our subconscious mind remains constantly on the lookout for anything that could potentially affect our self-image, constantly aware of the needs of our persona. Should it encounter something threatening, it will quickly try to dump the information and move onto something else, not bothering to engage the rational mind and evaluate the idea further. This is not a fault of our inner workings, but simply a quite natural means of protecting ourselves from pain. We can see how potentially dangerous this is when we look how little we challenge the accepted version of history. Of World War II, for example, we're typically taught that Hitler was an evil dictator who rose to power in Germany and sought to take over the world. Thus provoking a reaction from the Allies, which, whilst causing a massive and regrettable loss of life, was unfortunately necessary if the world was to be saved from a global fascist regime. But how many of us ask how it was that Hitler, the leader of a country so economically crippled that a wheelbarrow full of banknotes was needed to purchase a mere loaf of bread, could afford the immense cost of all out European war? How was it that the German army could secure the vast and continuing supply of oil and armaments necessary to undertake war on so many fronts simultaneously?

The answer, of course, is that it was loaned the money necessary by the elitist banking and industrial cartels of the West. Furthermore, it was these same cartels that actually carried out the manufacture of the armaments, there in Germany. Rendering the whole of the Second World War a farce. One consortium of business interests was arming both sides and allowed millions of people to needlessly die simply to create the right political and emotional conditions for an integrated European superstate under their control. Yet most people reading this will simply not bother to check it out further. Instead they will rapidly discount the whole idea on the first pretext that enters their mind. This is because, working at a subconscious level, our mind has already worked out that if we believe that World War II was entirely manipulated into being by elite groups, then we are going to have to believe that other events in our history are the same. And if we do this, it knows that we are going to have to adopt a set of beliefs that is different from that of our peers. Thus potentially exposing us to their ridicule and the terrifying fear and pain that lurks within. (Note that it is not a question of whether we do or do not believe something, simply a matter of our not getting the chance to evaluate it rationally). This entire process is entirely natural and is all be worked out at a level below that of our conscious awareness. The mind is like an iceberg. The bit we're aware of is just the tip. Beneath the surface a whole host of repressed needs struggle to be met. Now let's look at some more examples of how we come to dump information that our subconscious mind doesn't like the look of. And a little deeper at the process involved.

Emotional Hijacking In the 1990s author Daniel Goleman memorably coined the term 'emotional hijacking' to describe how a lower part of our mind would sometimes 'hijack' our information processing facilities and cause us to act irrationally, invariably in situations that it believed could be emotionally threatening to us. We shall now look at little closer at what is happening here. The repression response is just one of many responses we have developed over our evolutionary history. Another is the response we shall here call 'emotional hijacking'. Emotional hijacking refers to the ability of the lower parts of our mind - instincts, drives and defence mechanisms - to control the activity of the higher parts of our mind - analysis, deduction and creativity. For whilst we have developed a brain with quite phenomenal processing power, it is still under the control of our instincts. And if what the higher brain is processing begins to cause anxiety to the lower levels, then the lower parts cut in and 'hijack' the processing activity - diverting it away from certain types of deduction and directing it to dismiss possible conclusions. Now let's look at a few of what this process of emotional hijacking means in practise. Please read the following: "In the late 1990's, builders excavating the site of Benjamin Franklin's former London residence discovered 10 corpses, four adult and six child. They were subsequently dated as coming from around the same period as his occupation. Conspiracy theorists claim that this proves further that Franklin, known to be involved with various elitist Masonic and occult groups, as well as the UK's notorious Hellfire Club, was a practising Satanist who had participated in child sacrifices."

On reading the above piece most of us will experience an immediate, knee-jerk desire to laugh - to ridicule the absurd notion of Ben Franklin having been a Satanist and to have participated in child sacrifices. Why should this be? To persons brought up to believe Benjamin Franklin was a loyal American and founding father, surely the natural reaction should be one of anger or outrage at such an assertion. Yet, many of us will experience instead the urge to ridicule. This reaction is merely the defensive response described above. As we processed the last lines of the short article, so a lower part of our brain suddenly became activated and leapt in to hijack our higher mind, all without our being aware. Should we believe Benjamin Franklin might have been a Satanist, it will expose us to ridicule. Thus it acts quickly to prevent this and ridicules the notion itself. Note that this exercise is not making statements about Ben Franklin, merely demonstrating how easily our higher mind is controlled by the lower. Another means that lower parts of our mind can use to dump information that it believes may be a threat to us is to seek out one particular element and use it to disregard the whole. Indeed, whilst reading this piece you have probably already experienced this on several occasions. The mind goes on the alert and looks for any possibly faulty bit of reasoning or a likely untruth. And, should it find the slightest excuse, it then immediately uses this to disregard the whole piece. Again, remember that the problem is not that we don't believe what we read, but that we don't get the chance to rationally assess it. A variation on this techique that lower parts of our mind sometimes likes to use is to try and discredit the source of the incoming information. One example being my own experience as writer of this piece. I often receive letters and e-mails from people seeking to find out if I am in some way emotionally disturbed. And that they thus don't have to worry that the control scenario I am writing about might be true. Although quite natural, such attempts demonstrate the degree to which many people are now worried of even using their own higher brain functions for fear of they might deduce about our world. Another very popular and important route for emotional hijacking is the shift into left-brain thinking. Again, this is triggered by the lower parts of our mind.

If, whilst processing information, the lower brain begins to become concerned about the deductions being made, it can direct the higher mind to seek for alternative ways to account for what is presented. This is of course a natural part of the analysis process. But it is important to realise that here it is being done, not just to further understanding, but to block the formation of anxiety-inducing deductions. The difference being that when analysis is done for blocking the person will develop an emotional need to believe their interpretation is correct. They will become emotionally, rather than intellectually, biased towards one viewpoint. Now, let's look at the third and most damaging way our natural development of a persona comes to affect our life.

Learning to Deny our Pain In addition to the way that the persona can render us subconsciously reliant on consumer culture, and further drawn to believe only the mainstream interpretation of history, so it also prevents from us realising the scale of what has happened to us. For, as we have seen above, when we operate from behind a persona, we must resist any attack on our self-esteem. This means we must oppose any suggestion that we have been in any way negatively affected by the experiences of our childhood. We saw earlier that in order to release us from the negative effects of repressed material, we must become consciously aware of its existence, express the pain, and so commence the grieving process. Yet, whilst we're constantly compelled to oppose any suggestion that conditioning has done us any harm, how are we ever to come to terms with what has happened to us and thus begin to heal ourselves? As we shall see later, once we begin to take seriously the effects of childhood conditioning and seek to gently liberate repressed material, we naturally begin to heal at a deep emotional level. But if we don't do this, then the pain and fear repressed within remains present. And forever compels us to subconsciously adopt coping strategies, which in turn leads us to repeat the conditioning process on our own children. Life becomes a simple feedback loop. Because we have been conditioned, we cannot face the notion that we are conditioned. And thus cannot heal ourselves of the effects of our conditioning. Thus we go on to condition others.

Summary of Part Two As new-born children we are utterly dependent on our instinct, information passed to us from our genes, to understand what is going on around us. And we have only the primitive 'repression response' to protect us should we encounter a situation that our instinct cannot deal with. When the repression response is activated, we do not fully experience an event, and the memory of it along with any associated emotion is repressed. To keep this material repressed it is covered over with layers of anxiety. When as children we first experience our parents conditioning us to make us into civilised human beings, the repression response is activated. This is because our instincts tell us our parents should love us unconditionally, not withhold affection in order to lead us away from our natural behaviour. The anxiety that covers over our first memory of not being loved is the fear that we cannot be loved, that we are innately unlovable. Because this fear is not dealt with within our culture, it begins to cause us to alter our behaviour and thinking in order that we can avoid coming into contact with it. These alterations in thinking and behaviour are known as coping strategies. And the most basic coping strategy is the use of a persona - a shield behind which our true self can hide and carry out interactions with those around us. There are three important consequences of developing the persona. Firstly, because we learn not to ask for what we truly want, but merely symbolic representations of our needs, we are never satisfied for long and find ourselves becoming almost addicted to obtaining material possessions, acquiring personal power, seeking sensual pleasures and craving adoration - all simply substitutes for the unconditional love of our parents that was never ours. This is the root of the now universal problem of greed, for a person subconsciously driven to try and fill a hole with something that doesn't fill it up can never get enough. Secondly, because the persona is held in place with personal pride and self respect, we subconsciously develop a very powerful aversion to being ridiculed within our peer group. This has the overall result of greatly limiting our ability to question the taught versions of subjects like history and science. For to challenge them seriously, no matter what the evidence, is to potentially provoke ridicule, and thus cause pain. And finally, because we must maintain self respect to keep our shield in place, we must also challenge very strongly anything which infers we could have been negatively affected by our conditioning. Because we have experienced conditioning, we find it very difficult to recognise the true effect it has had upon us. And because we cannot comprehend the tragedy that has occurred in our lives, we can neither heal nor prevent ourselves from conditioning our own children. So, the process of being conditioned invokes natural defence responses we have and has the effect of turning us into emotionally vulnerable creatures, dependent on material desires, addicted to maintaining self-esteem, and highly resistant to natural self-healing. As parents we attempt to 'civilise' our children in this way because the founders of our culture created the conditions to compel us to do so. Religious and social beliefs were and still are constantly manipulated to ensure that all parents do it, or face social exclusion. Most cultures condition their children, but only in the West is it done with the specific intention of creating people who will undertake the enslavement of the planet on behalf of the elite.. Now let's look more closely at Western culture and how this enslavement is being undertaken.

Part Three - A Prison Planet [this section is still under construction] Structure Having read thus far, many people will no doubt have found what is written above quite interesting, but not unreasonably still be pretty skeptical about how any of this really points to the existence of an elite cabal operating at the apex of our culture. A chief query in many people's mind being - how could such a small group achieve such power, and without our realising their existence. Let's now look more closely at how this has been done. Knowledge is power. This popular aphorism is particularly relevant here. Exploiting people is very simple when you have a little more knowledge than they do. And whilst our knowledge of many things these days is impressive, there are important areas where we are deeply lacking. It is because we do not understand how important emotions are and how our subconscious needs will always try and get themselves met, one way or the other, that we become so controlled by fear and pain, as I've explored in the preceding chapter. And it is because the majority do not know what the minority, the elite, know that we now find our planet being directed toward a very dark place indeed. Anyone studying the most knowledgable and highly regarded characters in the early history of the West, from Pythagorus through to Isaac Newton, will find out, if they dig deep, that they all had a fascination with one particular subject - the esoteric.

By this I do not mean the bizarre rituals and funny costumes that most of us associate with occult knowledge. But rather the principles by which the universe operates that are hidden in the symbolism and text of many of the world's great religious works, including the Bible, accessible only to those in the know. Esoteric knowledge is knowledge of a system that essentially represents a means by which the will of an individual can be done. Whether this has a positive or negative impact on the world depends on the individual. Esoteric knowledge can be used for good or evil. The evil is currently outweighing the good because the majority of us have allowed ourselves to be led into believing that it is all just superstitious nonsense. Many of the principles will be familiar to us. But it is the ones that we are not aware of that are being used so effectively to control us. Most occult principles are cloaked in symbolism and three symbols very important to anyone who would like to control the world are the spiral, the pyramid and the planet Saturn. The pyramid represents a form of political or social structure that allows a small group of individuals to control a much larger group. If you imagine a pyramid split up into ascending levels you have the model. At each level up there are fewer people, but greater knowledge, and hence power. The pyramid power structure is found all over Western culture.

Companies, corporations, 'establishment' organisations and government bodies all classically use the this structure to manage their activities. At each level on the promotional ladder an employee ascends to, there is greater power. And when you get to the top you can control the entire structure on your own. When setting up these power structures, the elite will invariably asign the organisation to initially have a quite benign social function. This allows is to become established quickly. Once it has power, then its role can be progressively changed such that it begins to forward the agenda of the elite. The spiral represents nature and evolution, immensely powerful forces that can be harnassed by anyone for good or evil. The circular aspects of the spiral refer to the cyclical nature or periodicity of all living structures - seasonal changes, cycles of mental or physical activity, etc. The way that a spiral moves away from its centre with each turn represents the force of evolution moving through this periodicity. The elite commenced their activities with very little power but a lot of knowledge. And bit by bit they converted knowledge to power, always using their gains to the acquire greater power. From humble beginnings, they achieved power initially via accumulating wealth as goldsmiths. They then reinvested that wealth back into the emergent social structrures of Middle Ages Europe and thus slowly developed greater power. This too was reinvested back allowing them to gain greater control over the world around them, until finally the whole planet came within their grasp. This is an example of spiral power at work. The process of conditioning, of restricting an individual's freedom, such that you may exploit the consequences is well recognised in occult circles. It is known as harnassing the power of Saturn. Saturn has represented restriction from time immemorial because of the planet's famous rings, which to the occultist symbolise restraining bonds. The construction of America was largely achieved through the slave trade, a good example of the elite harnassing the power of Saturn for their own ends.

The conditioning of children is another. The harsh treatment British children in particular receive has been utilised for centuries to further the aims of the elite. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the elite thus harnassed the power of Saturn to create a race of people who could be driven to both sail around the world and colonise much of the planet and further work the infrastructure necessary to maintain the elite's empire. Whilst in truth from the Middle Ages onwards there were a variety elite groups vying for power, the creation of America consolidated the elite's power base to such an extent it became the ruling body. And later became the means by which they would bring the entire planet within their grasp. Central to all elite activities in Europe and the US is the conditioning of children. This is done on the pretext of rendering them 'civilised'. Once one generation of children have grown up conditioned you have the raw material that can be directed to go out and enslave other countries on your behalf. The elite used conditioning to make Europe and the US their centres of operation. And from these centres set out to conquer the rest of the globe. In addition to using the forces represented by the spiral, the pyramid and the planet Saturn, the elite also extensively use the power of imbalance. This tactic takes the form of vastly overemphasising one side of a structure that is naturally resolved into two complementary parts - the male over the female, conservatism over liberalism, reductionism over holism. This has the effect of causing deep imbalances within the human psyche. And our subconscious and innate desire to return to a state of wholeness is constantly put to use by the elite to further their ends. In order that this principle be effective we need to be led into believing that the state of imbalance is natural. This is done via yet another well-known occult principle - the principle of disconnection. By re-writing the history books in the Middle Ages, the elite have sold us the lie that Western culture derives almost solely from Ancient Greece, when in truth it is intimately connected with the ancient cultures of the Middle East, India and the Orient. By creating this disconnection with our past, the elite can impose their vision of culture upon us, and we thus come to believe that overtly one-sided structures are our cultural norm. This achieves two useful ends for the elite. Firstly, because we consciously believe that the culture that surrounds us is natural, our subconscious mind is constantly driven to seek out a state of wholeness that it feels must exist somewhere. And this drive can be put to use in the ongoing enslavement of the planet. And secondly, by creating the illusion that Western culture springs from just one place, the elite are thus free to utilise other people's knowledge to forward their own aims, without our understanding its significance. The esoteric principles we have been looking at here derive from ancient Eastern cultures.

And are being used to control us whilst we actually ridicule their very existence and our scientists expend much energy trying to prove they are not so! Indeed, with regard to science, one of the true masterstrokes of the elite was the establishment of the Royal Society in 1640's London. The Royal Society established the fundamental principles of what is now universally regarded as 'science' - reductionism and empiricism and these two concepts thus became the cornerstone of scientific method, as they remain to this day. And, in setting up the Royal Society, the elite achieved two vital aims. Firstly, esoteric knowledge became hidden from view and slowly ridiculed by the masses. And, secondly, the forces of the material world could progressively be harnassed by the elite as more and more scientists learned to understand them. What the founders of the Royal Society understood, that our scientists today do not, was that reductionism, the belief that something can be understood by examination of its component parts, can only be used to control society, it simply cannot set us free. Our scientific knowledge has many useful functions, but it cannot truly liberate us, for at a deep conceptual level it is based on illusory principles. Yet this concept cannot be recognised by scientists for they do not know of the esoteric principles involved. This is an example of how the power of imbalance is being harnassed by the elite for their own ends. Now let's look at little closer at just a few of the structures and institutions we find in the Western world and see how some of these occult principles are put to work.

Culture As humans, we are naturally spiritual creatures with incredible resources for self-healing and expressing love. And were it not for the oppressive influence of those who have hijacked our development, we would never find ourselves undertaking the planet's enslavement. The whole thing is being run from above us. The structures and institutions of Western society provide the means by which the elite can ensure we all stay in line with their grand plan for world domination. Let's look at a few. Patriarchy - the level to which men dominate our culture accounts for many of the problems our world now faces. Women are natural healers and, given half a chance, could resolve many of the world's problems very quickly. Yet the overwhelming majority of them do not get to direct their natural healing energy to where it is needed. Instead they find themselves constantly drawn to try and heal individuals resistant to their efforts. As briefly explored in the previous section, women who have been subjected to the Western childhood with its distant and frequently unloving father figures will find themselves constantly being subconsciously drawn into relationships with certain types of men.

Men who represent the father who didn't love them in the way their instincts told them he should. By trying to get neglectful and uncaring men to love them, women are fulfilling the emotional imperative of avoiding the thought that the reason their father didn't love them was because they are unlovable. By creating this self-perpetuating patriarchy, the elite have successfully ensured that the immense gifts all women carry are largely diverted away from where they could do the most good, and into fruitless and largely unrewarding sidelines. The Christian religion - The teachings of Jesus contain some of the highest spiritual truths that a person can strive to understand. Yet the principle source of the Christian religion, The Bible, has been so systematically censured at varying times over the ages that what meaning it once had has now been largely lost. By emphasising God the Father over God the Mother, removing Christ's teachings on reincarnation and removing general teachings on the establishing of actual contact with the presence of God via meditation, the overtly one-sided theology that remains serves principally to lead us away from love and into confusion. Reductionism and cell structure - the scientific philosophy known as reductionism refers to the concept that in order to understand something, we must examine what it is made of. This notion is at the heart of Western science and, indeed, what we call 'common sense'. And it is valid, but only up to a point. Reductionism is only one half of the story. The other half is known as contextualism, or holism, and it refers to the concept that something may be understood by examining its place in what is around it.

Emphasising reductionism over holism causes great imbalance. It makes it easy for us to focus on one task, but much harder to take a broad overview of what is really going on. Cell structure is what we have when we isolate elements of a process - lots of little cells of activity side by side, each disconnected from the next. And cell structure is the natural product of too much reductionist thinking. Cell structure is found all over Western society - in our jobs, our habits, even our minds. Here is an example. If Western consumers could see what is going on in 'third world' countries simply to bring cheap goods to their tables they would be horrified. But because the progression from manufacturer to consumer is split up into cells and we are so used to cell structure we are blocked from realising the scale of the tragedy that is going on beneath all the PR. In Latin America relocated populations are compelled to spend their days working in subhuman conditions churning out clothing in a factory. The people who ship the clothing to the West don't see this, because they just work in shipping; the people who sell the clothing don't see this because they just work in the shop; the people who market the clothing don't see this because they just work in marketing; and the people who buy the clothing don't see this because they just see the result of all the marketing. Because the system is split up into cells, we never realise the sheer level of human misery that goes into producing the goods that arrive at our tables. And part of the reason we don't realise this is because our minds are being split into cells in much the same way. Anyone who has been around for a few years will be aware of the degree to which the media have changed over the last decade or so. Information is now increasingly being presented to us in a standardised format, pretty much wherever we go. Slowly the media, be it TV, newsprint or radio, is being drawn to use the same concepts to present information, be it an ad for soap powder or a news broadcast. This standardisation of presentation, combined with the ever-increasing amount of information that we are all now required to process, has the overall effect of causing our minds to compartmentalise - to split into cells. In order to keep up with processing all the things that are happening around us, we have to quickly assess incoming information and stick it away in its own little compartment in our minds. This makes it harder still to ever really get a proper look at just what might be happening around us. Read any newspaper article these days, or watch any news broadcast and you will see in the opening of the piece information which helps the mind prepare emotionally and intellectually for what's coming and tells the mind which compartment to store it in. Pretty soon there will be so much information around that we will cease looking at content at all, and merely respond to these little intro 'bites'. Establishmentarianism - All over our culture we see simple control structures existing at the apex of numerous fields - science, medicine, the arts, media, law enforcement and the military, to name a few. These establishment bodies act as little control cells, regulating the course that different aspects of our society take as we develop. In classic cell structure arrangement, they too are separated from each other and allow a very small number of people to completely regulate social development from above.

Typically they are set up as benign entities, but when the time comes, their function is progressively diverted so that they forward the agenda of the elite. Let's briefly just look at one example. The Medical Establishment exists to control the way medicine develops. It exists as the numerous government, educational and corporate structures that determine what we research and what we don't. One of its most worrrying aspects is the pharmaceutical trade, which is chiefly in the hands of the private sector. Company and commercial law dictate that only ventures which offer profit may be pursued by a company. Curing or healing people offers little profit, as a customer healed is essentially a customer lost. Therefore, pharmaceutical companies are actually bound by commercial law not to pursue the development of therapies which could heal people, but only those which can temporarily alleviate merely the symptoms of health problems. Needless to say, this is not an ideal state of affairs. This is one, rather extreme example of just how negative establishment activities can be. All of the concepts found above - pyramid power structures, cell structures and the emphasis of one half of a two-sided arrangement are well-known to those schooled in ancient esoteric thought as means by which the human psyche can be progressively unbalanced and rendered amenable to control. But by making sure that the masses don't know about this stuff and thus remain blissfully convinced that esoteric knowledge is all just superstitious nonsense, the elite ensure that power remains theirs. Now let's move on to the world of work.

Commerce, workers and consumption We have seen how all the pain and fear repressed within us causes us to subconsciously adapt our behaviour to its presence. We are all of us either protecting ourselves from the thought that we are unlovable; 'acting out' repressed situations to 'prove to ourselves' we are not unlovable; or distracting ourselves from the thought that we are unlovable. And with millions upon millions of us all doing this, so the Western world is actually starting to become just a mass of coping strategies. We are each of us interpreting our world in a way that allows us to avoid confrontation with repressed conflicts from our past. And in a society based on supply and demand, so our planet is slowly being compelled to facilitate all these coping strategies in order that our minds can continue to keep repressed all the pain held within. And this is why our world has become split between the North and the South. People in the Northern hemisphere end up enslaving people in the Southern hemisphere just so they can have the things to help them get through the day. The driving instincts and seeking behaviour we adopt to keep pain and fear repressed become translated into corporate ambition and consumer fantasies. And so we are driven to undertake the enslavement of the 'third world' in a desperate attempt to satisfy our misdirected cravings. It is the culture the elite have manipulated into being that drives us to enslave other races.

And it is in the vehicles the elite have created that we actually carry out this enslavement. By creating simply the vessels for control - the companies and later the corporations; and the human positions within those vessels - the jobs and the promotional ladder; the elite have created the means by which the whole planet can be slowly be brought within their grasp. The corporation is the driving force behind the dynamic to control everything. It is the machine that forcibly draws ever more of the planet's resources under its control. And this driving entity sits embedded within a culture of control. A self-sustaining, ever-expanding culture that creates the personalities to work for the corporation and leaves the rest emotionally shipwrecked within a structure that either imprisons them as worker-consumers or sidelines them without the means to effectively rebel. (The latter as inmates of the prison system, inmates of mental institutions, drug addicts or the homeless). Emerging as new-born innately beautiful beings from our mothers, our subconscious minds are so confused by the bewildering treatment we receive, we allow ourselves to become our own jailer, and slowly, that of the planet. The driving force is The Corporation, and the background culture America. And so we might look at three beautiful humans being born within our culture and see what becomes of them. Susannah is an amazing person. A golden-haired girl who wants nothing more than to simply enjoy the world around her. But the harsh and imposing conditions of her parents strict regime soon mean that Susannah is compelled to give up her carefree outlook upon life. As her belief in love and the innate goodness of people is torn from her, so she utilises her considerable intelligence to put distance between herself and her past. Susannah has learnt that distancing herself from others and maintaining borders can protect her from experiencing pain. But because the experiences that caused her to adopt this defensive strategy remain repressed she has no means to truly comprehend what is motivating her behaviour.

Susannah becomes a cynical but powerfully motivated individual. Her driving ambition takes her unrelentingly to the top of the corporate ladder, where the social and economic power she wields enacts a terrible retribution upon the planet. She does not recognise the damage she is doing by forwarding the causes of corporatisation, for her motivations are entirely subconscious, and her conscious mind always creates excuses. And because she does not recognise the pain and fear lurking within, she cannot stop acting out her role. And should one day she finally begin to comprehend her part in the tragedy unfolding on Earth and leave the corporate environment, she is simply replaced by one of the many under her only too eager to forward their own subconscious agenda. Barry too is a quite beautiful and amazing child. Then one day when he us crawling about the floor, exploring his new world, his mother shouts at him for getting under her feet. His mother has been getting uptight recently for she has discovered his father has not been entirely faithful to her. Instead of discussing this with him, Barry's mother increasingly finds it easier to just take it out on Barry. Pretty soon, Barry begins to shut down. And, as he grows up, becomes increasingly motivated to do things that can give him some sense of the self-worth he subconsciously craves. Barry gets a job as a clerk in a post office. And his constant subconscious quest to experience self-worth causes him to slowly be drawn into becoming little more than a slave to consumer society. He works his life away to purchase goods constantly, always wanting a new car or new toys for the kids, and spends much of his time dreaming of material wealth, wrongly believing that if he had it the pain that lurks within him would go away. Damien is another quite beautiful child. He loves nothing more than to look around him at the world going by and stares in wonder at the great beauty of it all. At the age of three, however, Damien's father decides it's time he started to grow up, for that was the age that his father began to enact his conditioning regime on him. Damien starts to find his every waking thought being directed by his father. And any attempts to transgress are met with a firm slap. Now grown up, Daniel still loves the natural world. He finds no time for consumer culture and soon leaves the small town he grew up in and heads for the city where he quickly takes up with a local group of political activists and begins attending demonstrations protesting the activities of the World Trade Organisation and similar bodies.

But soon, Damien's natural desire to reverse the damage being done to our world becomes confused with his emotional need to confront the repressive regimes of his childhood. He finds himself constantly drawn into violent confrontations with the police. And so his efforts to change the world ultimately serve only to further marginalise rebellion because his constant subconscious need to indulge in violent confrontations with authority figures ensures that Barry and millions like him will never join him on the front-line. Slowly finding himself more and more driven to hang out with only 'hard-core' elements, Damien's life begins to implode with self-hatred as he starts to come to terms with his inability to control his need for violent confrontation. He soon finds himself addicted to the hard drugs which can at least stabilise his condition and, aged 29, is tragically found dead one morning of a heroin overdose in an abandoned building. At his funeral his father believes that if only he'd been tougher on his son it would all have been different. Not one of these three characters, nor the millions they represent, have done anything wrong in life. All that has happened is that they have subconsciously utilised completely natural coping strategies to deal with unnatural treatment. Unconditioned, and living in a different time and place, they would all have led quite different lives. In fact, if they had simply lived in a culture which accepted the dangers of conditioning children and encouraged people to later remove its effects, they would all have led different lives. But here and now, in this time and place, they have become merely pawns in the enslavement of the planet. And so, as our world grinds inexorably towards becoming a 'prison planet', it is finally time for us to start to consider what it is that we can do to reverse the situation.

Part Four - Escape Evolution of the mind If you have read thus far and found the thrust of this article to be worrying, then you may by now be feeling somewhat despairing as to what could possibly be done to save our world. Yet, in truth, simply recognising the problem is a very major step towards developing its solution. The truth is that the human mind is still evolving as we go through life, and it is this evolution that is causing increased numbers of people to begin to realise the truth of what our world is becoming. Fifty years ago people simply felt little natural need to question what they were told to do by those above them. But because our minds are still evolving, now we are starting to do so. And this is why the movement towards globalisation and microchipping is proceeding at such a pace. We are the sleeping giant beginning to stir and the elite need to try and get the prison door shut tight before we awaken. It is incredible that such a small group of people could wield such a level of control in our world. And all we need to do is recognise the problem and express our concerns - to those around us and those who supposedly represent us in government - and our world will be safe. Absolutely demand change and change will come.

Change Should we wish to alter the direction our planet is moving in, we do not need to give up all the pleasures and pastimes we believe we need in life, we need merely to progressively initiate a counter-strategy that will re-balance our world. In the previous section, I covered ways in which the elite have controlled the development of our culture, such that we find ourselves being driven to further their desire for world domination. The principle technique they utilise is to forcibly over-emphasise one half of a two-sided structure - male over female; conservatism over liberalism; self-concern over charity and so on. If we move to bring these structures back into balance so slowly the situation will correct itself. There is nothing innately wrong with many of the institutions and structures that control our lives. It is simply that things need rebalancing. When people absolutely demand change, change will come. A major source of the problem is the way we are treating our young. Because we prefer to give them things to show our love rather than actually express this love directly, our children grow up addicted to acquiring material possessions. Because we teach them wrong from right by withholding affection, they grow up needing rules and regulations, over-concerned with control and personal power. Because they don't experience directly our unconditional love, they grow up craving fame or a need to constantly change sexual partners. And this is only happening because we experienced the same conditioning when we were children. If we therefore look at both healing ourselves of the effects of our own conditioning, and progressively reduce the degree to which we condition our own children, there will be a massive knock-on effect in our society. Within each of us there are deep fears that are constantly restricting our ability to express ourselves, and slowly leading us to bring about the downfall of our planet. And if we wish to avoid transferring these fears onto the next generation we need to learn where they are coming from and how to stop them crippling our desire for change. Remember the elite are just a few among six billion people on this planet. The entire source of their power is the corruption of our natural instincts followed by their diversion into channels they have created to bring the world under their total control. This is all they have. Absolutely demand change and the elite are powerless. Our world will change spontaneously around us and we will be free to love one another in the way we always intended.

There are several basic ways in which people who want to can begin to change our world. Firstly, and most importantly, start to learn about the energy of unconditional love. Unconditional love is not the stuff of romanitic fiction, it is a real souce of healing and actually the most powerful force in existence. Evil simply cannot exist in its presence. When this force begins to become powerful within you, you will find everything else in your life aligning in its wake. Secondly, become politically active. Develop a voice and make it heard. Democratic government is a meaningless term at the moment as we can neither select who represents us, nor pick the policies they will pursue. But should this be changed, democracy is fully workable. In addition, speak your mind and do not fear ridicule. Those who ridicule and those who fear ridicule are merely pawns of the elite. Thirdly, undertake charitable acts. There are always people less fortunate than ourselves and they require our help. The homeless and those addicted to hard drugs in particular are victims of the elite's inhuman strategy for world domination. Charity is good for the soul and any charitable acts will be repaid many times over at another level. Finally, start trying to deal with pain that is repressed within. It is this which causes us to alter our behaviour and thinking to suit the elite's purpose. There is information on doing this, but first it should be recognised that such a path is not for everyone. If you feel that the pain within you is not ready to come out, do not worry, there are plently of other equally important things that require doing. Release The incredible tragedy that is unfolding in our world is ultimately just the result of millions of personal tragedies that have occurred in our childhoods. And whilst we can never reverse what has happened, we can initiate grieving. And once the grieving process has completed, we will find our lives completely transformed. No more driving ambition to succeed at work to the exclusion of all else. No more compulsion to buy, buy, buy, even when we have no money. No more obsessive craving for power, fame and fortune. And no need for daily drug or alcohol usage. And all accompanied by the total realisation that we never actually wanted any of these things in the first place! The gentle opening up of the subconscious mind, in such a manner that we can slowly process its contents and express the pain held within, leads to immense natural healing at a very deep level. Not just for ourselves but for the planet we inhabit. For, as each of us realises that many of the things we have been striving for can never truly bring us contentment, we release not only ourselves from the culture that has enslaved us, but also the planet from the stranglehold of consumer society. So, how to do it. These days there are a multiplicity of techniques that can be employed to allow us to explore our subconscious mind; to overcome fear; release trapped pain; and come to terms with childhood memories.

Release Techniques Here's a guide to some of the more effective ways for accessing painful memories suppressed in the subconscious. There are many others and sometimes repressed material just arises spontaneously. Remember that different people open up in different ways, and that it is always wise to proceed slowly at first. And do not forget that letting go of your own pain is just one part of an integral strategy to restore our planet to wellness. It should be combined with activism and especially charitable work. Breathwork - There are three styles of breathwork in common usage in the West. Any will frequently bring about incredible changes in a person's life. Most people learning these breathwork techniques are literally stunned to find that simply changing the way one breathes in and out for a couple of hours a week could allow access to so much repressed material. All styles should be practised with a recognised instructor. Rebirthing, Holotropic Breathwork and Vivation. Psychosynthesis - Developed by psychotherapist Roberto Agglioli in the mid-twentieth century, psychosynthesis utilises a variety of approaches to help gently break down the barriers between the different aspects of our personality. Thus, as the name suggests, helping us become a more integrated, aware and feeling individual. Primal Therapy - Devised by Dr Arthur Janov in the late 60's, this controversial regressive psychological technique is now practised in many different forms. A core element of many is the leaving of the individual in a hotel room for 3 weeks with only 2 hour therapy sessions daily to break the monotony. The idea being to break down the ego and slowly allow whatever it is that is behind our negative feelings to rise to the surface. Not to everyone's taste, but effective for some. And Janov's books are classics in the field of understanding repression and conditioning. Shamanism - Based on the ritual activities of numerous varying groups of indigenous peoples the world over, the various styles of shamanism that can now be practised in the West typically use dance and drum work to facilitate non-ordinary and intensely healing states of consciousness. Fasting - Age old and much maligned technique for empowerment and purification - physical, emotional and spiritual. Often very useful before or after other therapies. Reiki - 'Laying on of hands' healing technique that is believed to have originated when Dr Usui of Japan channelled divine healing energies to earth and then began 'attuning' people so that they could use them. The person doing the healing is seen as simply a channel for the healing energy which passes through them to the person they are treating. Some people have life-changing experiences, others do not. Useful as an adjunct to other work. Meditation - Very popular now in the West. Meditation induces a stillness of mind via a variety of strategies such as the repetition of a mantra. Unfortunately, meditation without accompanying conscious release of negative feelings and some degree of painful self-confrontation is as likely to simply "wallpaper" over repressed material as to help release it. Useful as an adjunct to other work. Visualisations and Suggestion - Because the subconscious mind is ultimately just a deductive tool operating on suggestions placed within it, many people have come to believe that by using counter-suggestions or visualisations we can stop ourselves from experiencing negative emotions should they be troubling us. This is true and these techniques are valid. However, neither suggestion nor visualisation usually facilitate access to original memories or sensations, or the release of the pain stored in the system at the point repression took place. Like meditation and Reiki, therefore, suggestions and visualisations are primarily useful as an adjunct to other work. Evolution of the Species Increasing numbers of people believe that humanity is on the edge of a major evolutionary leap. And there is mounting evidence that many children now born are more developed than their forebears. This may be the reason for the near epidemic in cases of hyperactivity or attention deficit disorder now being seen in the West. Those familiar with chaos theory and how living systems evolve will be aware that evolution does not proceed in a smooth and linear fashion. What typically happens is that a few members of a species evolve, followed by a major rearguard action that attempts to block the evolutionary leap. Eventually the pressure builds up to such a level that nothing can stop the inevitable and the whole species rapidly rises to a new level of coherence and order. Thus it may well be that the whole history of the last two thousand years or so is merely a rearguard action waiting to be swept away. Reach up and the future is ours.
