By spending more time in Essence, we learn to speak from Essence rather than from the ego. Essence won’t shout at you like the mind does.

Ego is the greatest hurdle to spiritual development.
Lao – Tzu , when he says that the greatest hurdle for growth is the Ego Cage of the I and the Me.
When Higher Divine Energies is chanted, the vibrations of the sound so produced burn all these negativities, purifies our body and mind, and gives us the right direction to bring about a spiritual elevation. The description of Devi fighting various battles against the demons is no different from our fight against the negative energies and impurities in our system. She provides us the armor and protection against the influence of all the negative forces rising in the outside world or within. With her grace we succeed in removing these impurities and qualify to merge with the Divine, thus winning the battle of our life.
Our Consciousness is usually directed by the matters of I-ness typically ruled by the lower Chakras going down from here. They are the centers of ego and self-esteem, survival and existence, power and control, self-gratification and sensual pleasures, passion and memories. The thoughts and actions of most people are directed by the dominating influences of such worldly aspects of life.
When their Consciousness rises from these levels at least to the level of Andhata Chakra they begin to have peaceful experience of the spiritual aspects of life. They gradually lose material interests and develop higher qualities like devotion and humility as their awareness rises above body Consciousness and egocentric self. They begin to involve in selfless acts, show compassion, acquire modesty, accept diversity of ideas and cultures, and participate in the matters of humanity.
It is the most active and fiery plane of passion that drives the matters of the universe. In humans it represents individual ego, energy of action, ability of self-assertion, and the power to dominate. It gives motivation and drive necessary to gain wealth, fame, recognition, and status all of which are measures of success in the world. Associated with the logic and power of reasoning, it plays major role in developing identity, self-confidence, and forceful personality. It also involves monetary matters. Its energy is directly related to the function of digestive system.
As the positive and ascending field of radiance, it also relates to the bright energy of Sun which gives willpower, control, and capacity to move and transform. Being the center of vitality, it is concerned with the distribution of vital energy throughout the body.
Considering its negative aspect, egocentric power of I-ness restricts the spiritual experience as it does not allow rising in Consciousness. l-ness is like a big demon which is extremely difficult to tame, the biggest hurdle in our spiritual progress. While constantly searching for ways to gain power and stay in control, it basks in the self-centered thoughts and self-gratifying activities.
It is the root cause of disharmony and discord, clashes and conflicts in the world as it raises egoistic ideas that segregate people. In an effort to assert itself and gain upper hand, it often disregards the facts, exploits even tragic situation to further self-interest, crosses ethical boundaries, and taints the truth to its advantage. It is an antithesis to love, compassion, sacrifice, and service necessary for the welfare of humanity which establishes peace and harmony. within and around.
Stop treating anything as mine to remove the attachment for it. If we treat this body as me, it will give rise to attachment to this body. The scriptures clearly point out that we are not this body and our acceptance of ourselves as this physical body is the biggest hurdle for spiritual progress.
All the actions in their entirety are performed by the energies of Nature. But he, who is deluded due to ego, wrongly considers himself as the doer. – Gita 3.27 Till we do not overcome our ego, we should perform our actions by remaining neutral to their outcome.
Selfishness seems to have been the greatest obstruction in the way of spiritual , mental and material progress for it has been the cause of wars in all walks of life.
Progress is slow. All depends upon constant practice and mind discipline coupled with the divine aid of the Preceptor before one can pierce through. The greatest hurdle to be crossed is the mind, its external sensualism and mental conflicts. The ego principle asserts and blurrs the aspirants vision. Self confidence and confidence in the Spiritual Preceptor can be achieved through Satsang.
Satsang, which consists of communal prayers, songs, rituals, discourses, readings and meditation, is held at least once a week.

Being identified with the ego is a habit that needs to be counteracted and replaced by a new habit of being identified with Essence together. It takes repeated practice before both people will be comfortable being in each other’s presence for longer periods of time without speaking from the level of the ego. From the level of Essence, words come that are often simply expressions of the experience of Essence—expressions of love, appreciation, joy, contentment, peace, and happiness.
Beyond this, what is said is only what needs to be said. By spending more time in Essence, we learn to speak from Essence rather than from the ego. Another benefit of doing this exercise is that distinguishing the ego’s words from Essence’s words becomes much easier. It becomes obvious that so much of what is spoken isn’t only unnecessary, but also divisive, judgmental, and an attempt to know something or to be right.
We get some pleasure from expressing these things, but that pleasure is the ego enjoying feeling superior. There’s no real joy in that pleasure. Real joy comes from the recognition of our unity with all of life, which is the experience of Essence.
Speaking words the ego enjoys keeps us from experiencing the truer and deeper joy that comes from Essence, which doesn’t need words. The joy from Essence comes from taking in the experience of the moment, not talking about it.
Overcoming the drive to speak the words the ego wants to speak is the greatest hurdle to staying in Essence and to helping others around you stay in Essence. Speaking the ego’s words immediately takes you and those around you out of Essence. So when you make the choice to stay in Essence, you are not only doing so for yourself, but also for others. Silence is indeed golden, but it’s very difficult for most of us to maintain.
So what are you to do if you are identified with the ego, but you know Essence enough to want that? That’s the situation so many of us find ourselves in. Very few of us live from Essence most of the time.
There’s an answer, though. When you do choose love, that’s Essence choosing love. Essence is able to reach into the egoic state of consciousness and draw you to itself, but you have to be willing to pay attention to Essence instead of the egoic mind.
Essence won’t shout at you like the mind does. It won’t try to convince you, scare you, or bully you to come to it like the egoic mind does. Essence whispers softly in each moment. It entices you with feelings of love, joy, peace, contentment, and happiness that seep into the egoic state of consciousness.
When you pay attention to these feelings, you are paying attention to Essence, and doing that drops you into Essence. The way out of the egoic state of consciousness and into Essence is not a hard road after all.
All it takes is paying attention to the love. joy, peace, contentment compassion, wisdom, and happiness that are already here in this moment. Can you feel them—any of them—even just a little? That is your doorway into Essence. Even a sliver of love or peace or joy can take you there. Pay attention to that sliver—notice it —and then that will become your experience of the moment instead of your thoughts.
Instead of noticing your thoughts, notice these subtle feelings and qualities that belong to Essence, and you are there! Making this choke isn’t difficult or unpleasant, but it is a choice.
The matrix functions as a simulacrum of choice—it creates the illusion that you are in control of your own life. If you acknowledge (discover) that the matrix and not yourself is in control, then you are in control. Thus, the logic is that of Catch 22: ‘If you think you know your own freedom, you are not free’; and ‘If you think know your unfreedom, you are free’. But either way, you are ‘not free’. Tavistock Institute. Part 95
Everyone on Earth is caught within the Matrix of the Archons, and is been controlled and govern by the “Chief Archon”. The Scriptures reveals who the Chief Archon is and same spirit controls the material world of the 3rd dimensional Earfthly Lfe, Reality, Ego-Mind and the World of Business.
Everytning is connected to each other under different names: Satan, Chief Archon, The Matrix, Lower Ego-Mind, Carnal Mind, Reptilian Brain, and from a organizations perseoctive the Illuminati rules the world and merged with the Freemasons 1782, and working together through secret socities as their structures for actions, plans and organization. These is in control of the shadow government of this world, and same people of organization is the one´s who planning for a One World Government. The creators of this is no others than the One World Rulers of the Mammon Government. The Mammon God Rules the World or the Mamminb Mind of Man, and the this is not the Consciousness of the Higher Divine Mind. They will present themselves as the Saviors of the World and they have the Solution for the Worlds Problems.
“living cloud of shadows” surrounding this planet, populated by energy parasites. These parasitic beings have chosen to experiment with the illusions of separation, fear, darkness, isolation, conquering, enslavement, pain, suffering, torture, etc. to the strongest degree possible. In doing so, they have completely cut themselves off from the nourishing Light of Being that supports life in the universe. The result is that they must energetically nourish themselves by feeding on low-frequency energies that resonate with their chosen mode of expression.
These beings call themselves “Archons” which means “Rulers” or “Lords” because they see themselves as the rulers and enslavers of humanity. (The ancient Gnostics first gave them this title in their writings based on direct psychic experiences with these beings.) While these unseen being’s clever enslavement and manipulation of humanity has been quite successful up until now, I will NEVER address them as my ruler or superior in any way, just like I wouldn’t consider physical, intestinal parasites as my superior even though they might cause me physical discomfort until I remove them from my body.
Our thoughts have power – much more than we often realize. Words and titles have power because they frame our thoughts into a certain set of beliefs without us even realizing it. Calling a “royal” human “Your Highness” automatically places them above you in your mind. Calling a judge “Your Honor” achieves the same thing. Therefore it very is important that when you think about these energy parasites, that you NEVER call them “Archon” because you will be literally handing them your power and energy by doing so.
This lets them know exactly what I think of them, which is that they are lowly parasites, an infection of consciousness that will be purged from my system through proper use of my will via energetic clearing and transmutation. This also serves to really make them angry which exposes them and makes them easier to deal with. In spite of their self-proclaimed status as “Rulers” of humanity, they hide like little worms in the shadows of our minds, sending impulses of low-frequency emotion and thought to our ego and emotional bodies in order to elicit a low-frequency emotional energy that they can consume. Because they love to hide, they need to be “flushed out” into the open in order to be dealt with, so a healthy dose of disrespect and a little arrogance are necessary ingredients when confronting these parasites.
A Little Back Story
Once upon a time, on this very planet in the far distant past, human beings were infinitely more impressive than we are today. We were fully telepathic, multi-dimensional beings that could simultaneously perceive and navigate many dimensions at once. We built vast cities with technology that worked in harmony with Earth’s energetic fields. We were in full alignment with our Divine Inner Self while expressing ourselves in physicality in a wide variety of life-affirming ways. This unlimited expression of Divine Selfhood was viewed by the ankle biters as a threat to their very existence, because the 3rd density has been dominated by them for a very long time on other worlds. To have a 3rd density world be completely free from their manipulations and feeding was something that they could not allow without a fight. The problem for them was that Earth humans were so powerful we could literally brush them off with a thought. These beings only have power over others who they have manipulated and put into fear. A fully aware human who knows their Inner Divine Self cannot be dominated by these parasitic beings in any way. The ankle biters will simply be metaphorically spanked for misbehaving and sent away.
However, these ankle biters are possibly the most clever manipulators in the universe, simply because ALL they know is manipulation and deceit. Practice makes perfect, after all. They studied these immensely powerful humans, lusting after the power and energy that they could drain from them if only they could figure out a way to manipulate, conquer and enslave them. They devised a plan to very carefully manipulate a few humans in positions of power into making an innocent mistake with terrible, cataclysmic repercussions. These humans were experimenting with new methods of harnessing and transmitting energy in vast quantities. The experiments were unprecedented and very ambitious — too ambitious because the ankle biters were secretly influencing some of these humans through their ego mind to push the envelope of what was thought to be possible.
When an advanced phase of testing at the north pole of the planet went disastrously wrong, this large, extremely powerful device exploded with such force that it caused tremendous cataclysms on the planet, rapidly melting huge swaths of ice and creating a flood that destroyed nearly every coastal area on the planet within a day. The vast amount of death and destruction was unimaginable, and only a remnant of the many billions of humans survived. Heavily traumatized, grief stricken at the loss of their loved ones and focused only on physical survival, they fled to safe locations to try and rebuild their once great civilization. This story sounds much like what we know of as the “Fall of Atlantis” but it actually occurred long prior to the civilization of Atlantis, even though it too perished in a similar manner many centuries later.
The incredible trauma of this experience caused a loss of perception in the survivors, making them less aware of the other dimensions that are always mingling with 3rd density. They simply couldn’t take the time to focus on any other density but this one, because their physical survival depended on being fully focused on the physical realm. At the same time, the human’s deep emotional pain, grief and wounding gave the ankle biters a tremendous amount of low-frequency energy that they could consume, allowing them to feast on the suffering of the surviving humans and grow more powerful.
The ankle biters found that as long as they stayed carefully hidden that they could send a small thought-form into the minds of the traumatized humans reminding them of all that they had lost. This would create a cascade of painful thoughts and emotions in the person that would generate more energetic food for the ankle biters. As each subsequent generation of humanity was born, the ankle biters became more bold and instituted a program of direct interference into human consciousness. They subliminally programmed humans to be blind to their presence, allowing them to more directly influence a person’s thoughts. They also programmed human consciousness to recoil away from any mention of the ankle biters or their dark influence over humans, so that when confronted with such information, a person’s immediate response will be disbelief, ridicule and mockery.
Finally, in their most brilliantly sinister move, they reprogrammed the human ego to resemble their own ego, and encouraged the ego consciousness to dominate all other levels of our being. They essentially reprogrammed humans to be like them: fearful, jealous, petty, dishonest, brutal, enslaving, murderous, unforgiving, punishing, etc. This insured that humans would be easy to manage as an energetic food source for thousands and thousands of years. These layers of programming have been in place in the human thought system ever since, perpetuating the discordant misadventures that we know as human history.
The Dark Control Grid
Over time, the ankle biters built an energy-feeding structure surrounding the entire planet which allows them to automatically gather human-generated low-frequency energy and send fearful or other low-frequency messages into human consciousness to keep people generating energetic food for the ankle biters. This structure exists in a “higher” density than this one, so it can only be perceived psychically or when out of body.
This structure is like a dark web of energy surrounding the planet that is heavy and oppressive. It serves to block energies coming to the Earth from the galactic core and other parts of the galaxy, but it cannot stop them completely. The grid is programmed with “negative feedback” that sends subtle signals into the sub-conscious and ego mind to keep people focused on low-frequency beliefs and thought patterns.
This “dark control grid” is programmed with an artificial intelligence to self-repair and notify ankle biters when it is damaged. The grid supports the ankle biter “collectors”, which are living amoeba-like beings that connect to nearly every person on the planet, soaking up all of the low-frequency energies that we give off in our daily lives. Ankle biters travel through this grid to attend to problems or directly oppress a person who’s energy frequency is getting too lofty for the dark agenda. The “bosses” in the ankle-biter hierarchy usually appear with a “reptilian” humanoid appearance, although they can disguise themselves with many different appearances.
The ankle biters have leveraged their advantages over humans to completely corrupt what we think of as “human nature.” You may be wondering what “human nature” would be without these ankle biters and their dark control grid. What has been thought of as “human nature” to lie, cheat, steal, rape, enslave and murder is a false program installed into the human mind, and is NOT truly human nature at all. True human nature is compassionate, caring, sensitive, loving, forgiving, cooperative, empathic, creative, energetic, joyful, inquisitive, irrepressible, non-conformist, uplifting and DIVINE. In order to reestablish our TRUE human nature, we need to jettison the false programming of the ankle biters.
One of the dark control grid’s functions is to block energy coming to Earth from the galactic core. Fortunately, this grid has been weakened, and it has “holes” in it allowing the galactic energy to come through in ever increasing amounts. The ankle biters know that their time is almost up, and they are desperately doing everything that they can to keep human consciousness in a low-frequency state. One result of their increasing desperation is that they are aggressively interfering with anyone who is raising their consciousness and frequency rate. That means you, and that means me. This is war to them, and they will do whatever they can to keep you, me and everyone feeling sad, fearful, depressed, disempowered, etc. One look at the news will confirm this.
“One result of their (Archons) increasing desperation is that they are aggressively interfering with anyone who is raising their consciousness and frequency rate.”
Always remember that YOU are the Power that these ankle biters covet and feed from. They pretend to be strong, but their strength comes from YOU. Ankle biters have NOTHING within them that is anywhere NEAR as powerful as a single human being with full awareness of their True Divine Nature.
Once your Inner Divine Light is expanded and you are connected to the Earth’s core, imagine that you are projecting a beam of light from your Divine Inner Core straight up and into the core of the galaxy. Your light beam will pierce the Dark Control Grid and arrive at the galactic core almost instantly. Then say to the Galactic Core, “I am ready to be a Galactic Conduit” at which point you will receive a “Cosmic Flush” of galactic energy. This is a minor change from the way of doing the cosmic flush in the original Self-Clearing System recordings, because YOU are initiating the energetic connection to the Galactic Core, then acting as a Galactic Conduit for the Galaxy’s consciousness to transmit its energy directly through you and into the planet. This is an important distinction because it reinforces the notion that YOU are the Power that is initiating the cosmic flush. You’re not a weak little person asking for help from the galactic core, but rather you are a powerful, incredibly important player in this cosmic game of chess that is nearing the endgame.Without YOU volunteering to be a Galactic Conduit, it would be much more difficult to dissolve the dark control grid when the time is right.
Imagine hundreds and thousands of people all over the planet piercing the dark control grid and conducting a Cosmic Flush directly into the planet’s core, and that light spreading to everyone who can receive it. Imagine the ankle biters dashing around frantically trying to repair the holes in the control grid while the people stand strong as Galactic Conduits in spite of the ankle biter’s attempts to get them to stop and think fearful or sad thoughts instead.
The fact remains that they will interfere with anyone who is actively raising their frequency of consciousness,and they have done so throughout human history. Their favorite technique is to send in a reminder about things that are “wrong” in your life, especially if they can distract you into blaming someone else for that “problem” that is suddenly on your mind. Other dirty tricks they use are distractions to do something fun or something you “need” to do, as long it gets you to STOP embodying a high frequency energy state. Sometimes they will launch an all out psychic attack. Often, they will attempt to get at you while you are asleep or doing something unrelated to energy work. All of these tricks can be countered.
When you notice ankle biters trying to interfere with your thoughts, emotions or energy, immediately start expanding your Divine Inner Light from your heart until it surrounds your body. This pure, intense light of your Divine Being is painful for these low-frequency ankle biters to be near, and they will withdraw.
However, even when withdrawn, the ankle biters will have a thin “energy tube” connected to you somewhere in your consciousness that they will use to send harmful energy or siphon off your emotional energy.
Command from your Divine Core that the ankle biters present be captured in “containment orbs,” which are energetic spheres of light that keep them from running away and hiding. Then do an energy refund to send their “tubes” and any other connections they have formed in your consciousness back to them. Now, for just a few moments, it’s ok to get a little angry as a temporary way to rise above feeling helpless.
Once they are contained, imagine that you are grabbing them and “squeezing” them to get them to let go of YOUR energy that they have been draining from you. See that low-frequency energy pooling in front of you, then hit it with a blast of light from your heart to purify and transmute it back to a state of pure energy, and reclaim that energy back into your being.
At this point, the ankle biters will be upset and trying to make you feel bad about yourself in any way that they can. I suggest that you laugh at them and remind them that they were NEVER given permission to take your energy or enslave humanity.
We are nearing the point where it is time to fully remove the ankle biters’ influence from Earth, and to dismantle their dark control grid.
The Beginning of the End of the Darkness
The ankle biters are not going to give up easily, and they are already fighting back with everything they have. Their increased frequency and intensity of attacks on lightworkers and casual meditators alike reveals their desperation. They have been weakened by the generally rising consciousness on the planet and they are very dangerous, like an animal backed into a corner.
In order for the plan to remove their influence from human consciousness to work, we need an army of lightworkers expanding their Inner Divine Light and acting as Galactic Conduits, piercing the dark control grid full of holes that allow tremendous light to stream into the earth. If we can do our part here on the ground, the non-incarnated members of the Forces of Light will be able to make the final move and strip away the dark control grid from this planet, resulting in an instant uplifting of all life on Earth.
I can’t emphasize strongly enough how important this step is in our planetary ascension. This dark control grid has been corrupting and stifling human consciousness for many, many millennia. When it is removed along with the ankle biters, it will be like an instant consciousness expansion for every person on the planet. Imagine everyone suddenly being free of the “dark side of human nature” so that the true glory of loving human consciousness can expand within the hearts and minds of everyone on Earth.
It is up to you if you want to participate at this level, and it is fine if you don’t want to or you aren’t able due to circumstances in your life. If things are energetically smooth in your life and you are not drawn to the idea of helping with the clean-up of the ankle biters, I fully respect that decision. This path is truly NOT for everyone, so you must check with your Inner Divine Self to see if this is for you. However, if you want to “seize the moment” and use this opportunity to become more powerful, compassionate and ultimately more forgiving, this might be for you. Also, if you find that you are experiencing psychic attacks from the ankle biters, you are already part of the final showdown.
Your Subconscious Environment
It is important to be aware that the ankle biters use our own sub-conscious beliefs as “portals” into our psyche. Every unhealed wound in our sub-conscious is like a “pressure point” that they can squeeze to elicit an emotional response from us. This is one reason why self-clearing is so important.
Ankle biters will very often manipulate people in their dream state to reinstall or strengthen limiting sub-conscious programming. Fear is their primary tool, so they will embed fearful scenarios in the dream state in order to make a person susceptible to their programming. It is very much like a form of hypnotic suggestion, and it requires tremendous self-awareness to break free from this programmed mind system. Each night before you go to sleep, invoke your Divine Inner Self from your heart and declare that you will dream safely within your Divine Inner Light. State that you intend to remember ALL of your dreams, so that you can dissolve any limiting sub-conscious beliefs that are revealed in your dreams.
In the morning, take 10 minutes to reclaim energy from any limitations or fears that were exposed in your dreams. Even if you can’t remember them, take those few minutes to expand your Inner Divine Light, clear your energy field and start your day from your inner divine inspiration.
The more clear you get, the less the ankle biters will be able to manipulate you into low-frequency emotional patterns. Always remind yourself, “I am the Power they want”and then stand strong in the power of your Divine Inner Self. Blaze your light like a million suns, for you are so much more than you realize, and soon you will know without any doubt how powerful you truly are.
Text Soure; Never Call Them Archons – How You Can Help Bust Up the Matrix by Cameron Day.
Yaldabaoth traps humankind in a material prison that is not the ultimate metaphysical reality, so does Al imprison humanity, as Morpheus ex-plains: “As long as the Matrix exists, the human race will never be free” Matrix)
Rereading the above quote from the Apocryphon of John in terms of the final battle between Neo and Smith in Revolutions is also surprisingly coherent, revealing the depth to which the Gnostic structure holds throughout the plot: the knowledge imparted by Sophia (the Oracle) from within the chief archon, Yaldabaoth (Smith), results in a perception by the human creation (Neo) that the archon programs cannot comprehend, and the human becomes a luminous presence that overcomes their darkness, resounding even from the lowest region of matter (the pit in which Neo and Smith fight from within the Matrix).
The Hypostasis of the Archons says the evil archons clothed man in a material body, a casket or tomb (a Saropis). They contrived to keep Adam and Eve, along with their Divine Particles – and Sophia herself – trapped in matter, enslaved forever in the wheel of reincarnation as tillers of the Garden of Eden. In this way humans provide food for the rulers (more on this subject momentarily). The Hypostasis also describes a veil that exists between the world above and the realms below. “And the shadow came into being beneath the veil; and that shadow became matter; and that shadow was projected apart.” With the application of the veil thus began a program of mind-body control- or soul enslavement – maintained by Yaldabaoth’s Archons (rulers) which involved keeping mankind distracted by material problems and concerns, imprisoned by its own fear of death, of mortality, and ignorant of its true, divine nature.
For all mankind; he lives in a body which is a prison for the soul ; he is the autochthon of a lost and invisible world.
“The matrix functions as a simulacrum of choice—it creates the illusion that you are in control of your own life. If you acknowledge (discover) that the matrix and not yourself is in control, then you are in control. Thus, the logic is that of Catch 22: ‘If you think you know your own freedom, you are not free’; and ‘If you think know your unfreedom, you are free’. But either way, you are ‘not free’.
If you think you are free—to see, reconstruct and interpret the film—you do not realize how much the film has locked you into its hyperreality. And if you understand how powerless you are in the face of the game, then you know that you are part and parcel of hyperreality. Either way, the hyperreal reigns.
Energy flows (electricity) are essential in the film. The reproduction of the the keeping of the system alive—is its sole purpose. Humans are used as batteries—that is, as a primary energy source. Humanity is defined in terms of thermodynamics: it exists in a regime struggling to overcome entropy. The climate change that has caused human beings to be transformed into biological batteries is a result (the agents tell us) of a fault in the evolutionary identity of humanity. The matrix is in its own way `justified’—after all, humanity destroyed the earth. Humanity is both ‘good’, as in the case of Neo, Trinity and Morpheus; and ‘bad’, as the cause of all of the ecological problems. If human agency were to be restored by Neo, then the curse that destroyed the planet would be ready to be reenacted.
Prefabricated objects and predetermined sequences of behavior organize the matrix. That you have to play is an integral aspect to the logic. The obligation to make consumption choices is the real violence of the matrix. Consumer choice, in a hyperreal consumer society, can never change the logic of the essential relations. Functioning within the system might irritate or disrupt it; but it can never fundamentally question it. Neo may become a source of misfunctioning for the system. The VR may be forced to allow him to fiddle (a bit) with the simulacra, but the principle that society is a VR game is unaltered. The matrix divides humanity into winners and the rest. Humanity is imprisoned in the matrix, doomed to create the electricity that is needed to play out immature superhero games. The basic definitions wherein social reality is a computer game and one exists in the myths of the twentieth century are not altered. Mindfulness is blind to itself; it is defined as the ability to be totally lost in a world of consumerist hyperreality. Human existence is a video game played endlessly over and over. Mind is limited to dealing with the parameters set by action films.
The matrix displays the inconsistencies of a world defined as a closed system no such tight order remains conceptually sustainable.
