Don't Stop Believing

I was going to post a major diatribe this week, feeling the weight of the world on me, when Var had a few good days, and it seemed like the clouds lifted a little. So I smoked a little bowl and I had the most wonderful idea for a marketable design concept, and my mind has been happily focused on that, rather than the end of the world. Now I want the world to continue for a little bit longer... curious.

I sometimes wonder if the End of the World will happen when enough souls on planet Earth wish it to end. Say 51%, but I don't know - global consciousness is probably not a democracy. According to doctrine - we dream our world into existence. Wouldn't it be interesting if the world ended when everyone finally lost faith in the dream?

Now that all our conventional dreams have turned to sand, it becomes difficult to find one to believe in. Jeff Wells at Rigorous Intuition asks where is faith (real faith, not just denial) in the future to be found? Certainly not in what passes for religion or science these days, and not even at RI.

I always turn to either porn or scripture for inspiration, and tonight I have both - the story of Sodom. There is a wonderful scene in Genesis 18 that has Abraham bargaining with God over the fate of Sodom. God says he has heard about the great wickedness of the city, and plans to destroy it. Abraham asks God if he will destroy the righteous with the wicked, and throws out a wild number:

Then Abraham approached him and said: "Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? Far be it from you to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

God easily agreed, and Abraham suddenly feared he had bid too high. He keeps winnowing down the price until finally it is just 10 righteous men.

Be that as it may, God found less than 10. He did find Lot (Abraham's bro) and he sent a few angels to get him the hell out of town before the bomb fell. I wonder if Sodom wasn't having some kind of existential crisis back then... a total breakdown of faith in a viable future. Maybe they had their own version of global warming/nukes/insane Neocons/Peak Oil/etc. Faith isn't just about wacky religious doctrine. Faith, or confidence, is what gives us the strength to get out of bed every morning! Hit it, Julie:

I Have Confidence! The Sound of Music

Apparently, The Id will keep our world in His imagination as long as there are at least 10 people who still believe in it. Or maybe less, but definitely more than just one. More than a Lot. I'm afraid my faith has its ups and downs. But for both our sakes, don't you lose yours. Don't stop believing. The universe may depend on it.

Don't Stop Believing - Glee. (The gay clowns/clones of G*D)

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth? Luke 18:7-8

Hehe, nice one. Reminds me of the recent mini-remake of The Prisoner on the AMC television network. "The Village" was parellel to waking reality and maintained by "a dreamer," who upon waking would cause the world to be slowly destroyed, and the longer she was awake the more damage would occur until she started "dreaming" again. Like the Hindu god who destroys the world upon waking, we are collectively god, and destroy the world when we lose the dream.

Wow!! This was a fantastic article Michael-and very "synchy" to me-I have been wondering-really ever since 2009 got underway -how the hell this whole show hasn't collapsed!!
I think there must be a "life force"-something-that is holding all of this together
there are so many predictions i had for what our future "probably" held both as a nation for the US-and the world. and none of them thankfully have come to pass!!
although I do know that each and every day is "apocalypse" for someone
I had realized for some time that Jeff had grown quite pessimistic about our chances -and for awhile I was completely on board in agreeing with him -now I am not so sure.
Jeff did a wonderful post called "Are You Being Served" In January 2007 I believe-sorry i dont have exact link that spoke to some parts of humanity's consciousness maybe not wanting to "shutter" this production we call life on earth.
Perhaps -going back to your thoughts-that indeed-whether we will have "heaven" or "hell" depends on a certain percentage of people who but into whichever concept.
I can remember reading literature as far back as the early 80s with lovely thoughts such as "we are heading towards our destruction on a train that no longer doesn't only not have an engineer-but the brakes on the train are off"-i probably paraphrased this lousily-it is just that the world has always been ending for so very long now -and yet-and yet-we are still here in our year of grace 2009.
I am the first to issue a "mea culpa" on a prediction for world ending that obviously thankfully didn't come true-I had picked 1983 as the year the nukes were gonna fly and it was game over-well 26 years later-and still ticking-the prediction or premonition hit me when i was looking at a TIME? i belive magazine cover with images of Ronald Reagan and Yuri Andropov back to back-and I thought of each as the ultimate product of politics in their own countries.
Excellent thoughts Michael and I think the statistical argument is as good an explanation as any!
really looking back on the whole time I/we? have been alive it seems as if the final credits were about to start rolling any day now!!
best to you and Var as always and thanks for this fantastic article!!

ViolatoR - Ha! You just used "mini" and remake" in the same sentence. Those are both huge synchs for me. But anyway, thanks for the Hindu God tie-in. I swear, those Hindus have got it goin' ON.

Dev - I know. I was SURE that the US was going to be nuked by the Chinese in 2004! Living in "Sodom" as we are, I think we sensitive types are always sensing doom around the corner. Perhaps the dyed in the wool Americans are the only ones holding the American Dream together? I know I lost MY faith in America a long time ago. And it seems that they are now losing theirs, though they are going through the nasty "Fascist" stage of it. That's just part of the denial. I assume they will get past it, though not without some serious damage to the usual scapegoats, unfortunately.

Jeff Wells - yea, I think he needs to change his tagline to "seriously pessimistic". Not that I don't totally understand and even agree with his position. But Jesus H. Christ! Even Nihilism has its limits.

Exodus 22:29,30 – “Thou shalt not delay to offer the first, or thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me…v.30 Likewise…do with thine oxen, and …sheep: seven days it (the sons, oxen and sheep) shall be with his dam (mother); on the eighth day thou shalt give it unto me. (In other words – god demanded the firstborn son to be killed in ritual sacrifice).

These quotes are from the judeo/christian bible, although it seems straight out of some sort of satanic ritual book. This is because the bible is a luciferian-based satanic worship guidebook. The hypnotic trance of religion allows us to gloss over, what should be obvious.

The Old Testament types of sacrifice which need to be fulfilled in New Testament times. Notice this is subliminal suggestion and wordplay meant to hypnotize.

Leviticus 27:28,29 – “…no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the Lord of all that he hath, both of man and beast … shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the Lord. (It will be shown who the lord really is on this site).

v.29 – None devoted … shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.”

It is clear the lord of the old testament demands both man and beast dedicated unto him to be surely put to death. Today this is done systematically through such strategies as war, crime, the medical drug system, chemtrails, scientific advancements and so on. In other words, human sacrifice is fulfilled literally through the mind numbing doctrine of religion and academia. It is well hidden, but nonetheless it is human sacrifice.

Believe? Believe in what? A better life here in the light? We came from dark and the light is not our friend!

Q: Where did the light to the Universe come from?
A: The Chameleon Principle...The prince of darkness – The angel of light. The luciferian agenda is based on intellect, the DUMBING DOWN PROCESS – perpetuated through religion, science and magic. These three are synonamous and together form the luciferian doctrine of SATANISM, which is the ENLIGHTENMENT, or manifestation of knowledge. Since there is no such thing as an actual Satan, the THOUGHT PROCESS, conjured up the LIGHT, or ENLIGHTENMENT, and every DIVISION within the 3D experience.

The Real Illuminati Agenda.

The luciferian illuminati agenda is not just to create a world society controlled by fascism, communism, capitalism, socialism, and every other “ism” all rolled up into one. Their ultimate desire is for humanity to cling to this illusory 3D existence.

We are naive children being hammered with a hefty dose of reverse psychology. By threatening to take away our rights, our physical health, our material wealth and our spiritual freedom, we react and scream bloody murder. No way can you do this to me … to us! We are full of indignation. We want to keep our health, our wealth, our comfort, our guns … and the freedom to move about at will. This is how we succumb to the great liar of the universe, and yet all the while we thought we were doing a good and godly thing. Not realizing for an illusory moment that our 3 dimensional experience, which we call our LIFE, is the great illusion, and the UNIVERSE itself is completely NON-EXISTENT.

No matter what befalls the world, we MUST NOT FALL INTO A REACTIONARY SCENARIO thrust upon us by the illuminati. Don’t believe anything you see or hear from the media.

The purpose of humanity is not to see how much health or prosperity we might attain. Neither are we here to worship a God in exchange for an eternity of peace and bliss.

The PURPOSE OF HUMANITY is NO PURPOSE!

To BECOME AWARE that the whole body of HUMANITY IS AN ILLUSION, an utter fabrication, that the 3D experience, and the conjured up body of humanity, IS the veil of deceit that makes it utterly impossible to rationally conceive that it, humanity itself, is the deception keeping the disconnection from reality intact. This is what we must come to recognize.
