It has become increasingly clear in the minds of many citizens that a degree of influence over the structures of elected governments is pushing our society towards determined goals that have little to do with the well-being of the majority of citizens or national governments of this Earth. – Matthew Ehert

So, you want to defeat the bad guys, huh? You want to take down the conspiracy and save the world, I take it?

As the quote shares, we all know that there’s a degree of influence over the governments of our respective countries. When we research more into this idea, we come across terms like “the elite” or “the cabal.” But after further research, we realize these “bad guys” aren’t necessarily a group of individuals in a dark tower pulling the strings. Sure, they are invisible and sure, they exert tremendous influence, but we can’t all gather up in arms and yell, “Strike down the tower and save the world!” We simply can’t.

But fortunately, we can take action. While figurately, it may help us to imagine these invisible bad guys controlling the world from a tall tower, we cannot take action against the building. But what we can do is we can identify the influences of the tower.

The influences of the tower can be seen to take place as the systems that our world is built on. These systems are the intricate details that piece together every piece of our life, reality, and what we call our existence. And if we decided to take a serious look into the origins of these systems, we come across a startling revelation: our systems may have been built by the cabal.

When you look at our modern paradigm of reality, you see that our current world is only roughly 200 years old. This is the premise behind my upcoming book, An Unorthodox Truth, where I analyze, on a multi-faceted approach, the effects of the Industrial Revolution on us here in the States. More importantly, I focus on those key players during that pivotal time because we see that these individuals may have been responsible for the current societal structure we find ourselves in.

From health to government, to education, and to our financial system, all are a result of the last hundred years, so when you look into the origins of these systems, you begin to see the same players and ideologies at play. Now, seeing that this was two hundred years ago, you can’t take down those bad guys, but as the late John Taylor Gatto stated, it helps to be aware of what they have created for us:

“You are at present trapped in a labyrinth built by past generations; our entire nation, too…” John Taylor Gatto, Weapons of Mass Education

So, step one to taking down the bad guys is first being aware of this labyrinth built around us. It comes in many facets and looks, making the illusion all the more challenging. Now, most individuals know of these systems and how corrupt they are. For example, we know the FDA colludes with Big Pharma and that Big Bank pays the pockets of governments. But at times, we fail to see those other subtle systems. For example, we know the Mainstream Media reports propaganda, but when a strong emotional story grips the nation and sometimes the world, we fail to realize the system for what it is.

We have to realize that this is a system that we find ourselves in, which was built by a powerful few years ago. We must also come to the realization that our parents were in this system and their parents, and their parents parents, were just being born when this system was being developed. Once we realize this, we recognize that we cannot take down this system overnight. However, that does not undermine the power of being aware and knowledgeable of the system.

You see, once you know the system, you can tell how the system moves. You study the system, and you can see how this arm over here connects to that arm over there. You’re able to grow more intimately with the system because you’ve learned so much about the system, and what begins to happen next is that you start to see how the system has impacted you.

If step one to defeating the bad guys is about being aware of the system, then step two is realizing how the system has impacted you.

You see, if this system had been in place for centuries before we were born, how did the indoctrination of education affect us? How did it shape our structure, or morality, our psyche? If we were all born with the use of technology, how does this artificial creation that permeates every area of our lives, how does it affect us? Does it affect our walk, our talk, and does it affect our very health? Speaking of our health, is that affected by the system? Are we taking products from the system?

Most importantly, are we thinking like the system?

The solution to all of this is to go within. To go within requires one to go deep within. Going deep isn’t an easy journey because what happens is that one has to reflect back on life, the good, the bad, and the ugly, and begin to look at them with a new, fresh set of eyes. We no longer look at our lives through the eyes of the ego-centric psyche developed from the system but now from a new set of eyes: eyes that are now aware.

As the ancients say, “know thyself.” The great philosopher Manly P. Hall once stated:

“Every man’s true teacher is his own Higher Self, and when one’s life is brought under the control of reason, this higher Self is released from bondage to appetites and impulses and becomes priest, sage, and illuminator.”

By looking at our lives through this new perspective, we begin to see a meaning to our lives. By looking at our past and present, we can apply meaning to these and start seeing our future. We can look at our experiences, what we liked, what we didn’t like, what we wanted to do, and why we didn’t do it, and from this new perspective, develop an insight into who we are, how we got here, but most importantly, who we want to be. And when we develop this, we develop one of the greatest tools known to humanity: a purpose.

By developing a purpose, our lives and actions align with what we want, from an intimate, deep, soul level, of what we want to do next. We no longer blindly live our lives following the systems set for us. With a purpose, we are now aware of the system selected for us, but we can now use the resources that the system fashions and carve out a new plan for our lives.

When we begin to do this, from one person to another, we begin to develop families, communities, and ultimately societies that have started to pull away from the old system – away from those built hundreds of years old – and toward new systems, ones built upon the experience of the old, but moving forward in a new direction. One filled with bravery, love, and justice for all.

To close, this is how we defeat the bad guys. This is how we overthrow the cabal. But this is just the beginning. As we grow, we realize there are tools, skills, and resources that can help us tremendously in our quest out of “Plato’s cave.” I’ll write about sources like this in How To Defeat The Bad Guys, Part Two, as I’ll dive into more of those resources. Please note that that article will be member-only, and if you’re not a member, here are three reasons to become one.

The Brave New World of 1984, Part Three


Welcome to the three-part analysis of The Brave New World of 1984. This is Part III of three. You can find Part I here and Part II here.

As we wrap up our analysis on predictive programming, what’s important to note is that predictive programming is just one form of what we would consider “magic.” In my Udemy course, I describe magic as “the conscious effect of the non-physical affecting the physical.”

The definition of magic is similar to Jung’s definition of synchronicity, but it’s the conscious application of synchronicity. Ultimately, magic could be known as the deliberate influence of the mental realm for physical manifestations.

From my manuscript, we read the following: “…the term magic comes from the Greek word magos. Magos referred to “a member of a learned and priestly class.” (This is an important aspect that we’ll discuss, but think back about our chapter on billionaires, and you may see the connection between that chapter and this one.) Magos itself is derived from the Old Persian word magush, meaning “be able” or “have power.

If we understand the notion that individuals can use techniques to influence the mental realm, which ultimately leads to real-world effects, we can understand how magic can be used as a tool. And if we take a look through history, we see how this power has been wielded.

In the previous article, “The Man Behind the British Empire,” I focus on the individual known as John Dee. John Dee was the advisor to Queen Elizabeth I back in the 1500s. Dee was her second in command. Dee would sign her letters on her behalf. Dee, having saved the Queen’s life from multiple assignation attempts, is the reason behind the folklore of James Bond, better known as “007,” Dee’s signature. Dee was also the very first individual to coin the term the British Empire. Lastly, John D was well known as an alchemist and magician.

When we realize that magic is simply techniques to consciously affect reality, we see that there are many techniques they can use to conduct reality. One of these techniques is the arts, which have been used to shape societies and empires for millennia. In the article, Who Are The Bad Guys, I write about how our government agencies have worked closely with “the arts” as in Hollywood. The Atlantic states so here as well.

So at this point, we’re at a crossroads in our perspective of reality. We have this orthodox view that’s been told that “this is how the world works.” You know we vote, governments make changes, we pay taxes, etc., etc. However, look at this unorthodox view of reality. In that case, we live in an oligarchical society that uses the government as a front to paint the mental illusion of choice. We have the arts, education, and media to reinforce this illusion of reality, and this manifests as the society that we live in. 

If you accept this unorthodox view, you understand that magic – deliberate influence of the mental realm for physical manifestations – is a part of reality and, ultimately, a part of nature. And if that is the case, can we tap into this natural aspect of reality?

Related article: Do Some of the World’s Elite Use Black Magic Rituals To Obtain More Power?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. Yes, we can tap into this natural aspect of reality. I’ve had the privilege of spending the last six years really understanding and putting into practice the application of magic, and I can tell you how I’ve witnessed synchronicities tremendously. From the professional – where I became a Director – to my personal life, which I touch on here. 

I’ve compiled my research and experience thus far into my course, but the takeaway is that if we understand how this world perspective they’ve given us was formed, we have a better grasp on reality; true history. And if we understand the past to the present, we know where we can go in the future. This is the concept of meaning: understanding how the past ties to the present and leads to the future. Only by understanding how the past was formed can we understand how this reality has been hidden from Us. 

 One of the books I relied heavily on during my research was the book Real Magic by Dean Radin, which was introduced to me by Collective Evolution many years back. On the back of the book, we read the following:

“According to Dean Radin, noted scientist and bestselling author of The Conscious Universe, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.”

Based on my work and countless others, we must come to terms with the reality of magic and know how to use this aspect of nature because it’s all around us daily. This is the phenomenon that I dive deeper into within my members-only section. Whether we want to accept the reality that psychologists understand the technique of propaganda and how they can use it for corporate and nationalist goals or how our screen-based devices take our spirit away from our bodies, the fact of the matter is that magic – the influence of the mental realm for physical manifestations – is all around us and affects us daily. 

So if this is the case, what can we do to positively affect the mental realm for positive manifestations in our realities? 

Many processes can be done, which I dive into towards the end of my course. Techniques can range from goal-setting to other aspects such as “projecting” (aka completing projects). One interesting aspect is the phenomenon of intentional dreaming, which Production Chief of Disney Studios David Paul Kirkpatrick credits for his career:

Another example of magic is the concept of luck. Luck is probably the closest thing to what society calls magic nowadays. Yet again, fortunately, studies have shown that you can increase luck in your life. This is the vital aspect behind the 2021 Business Book of the Year Unfair Advantage by Ash Ali and Hasan Kubba.

These individuals, with Ali being a billionaire, write extensively about luck, including this op-piece for Fortune. In their book, they devote an entire chapter to luck and how studies show how to increase your luck. I plan to write more about how to improve your luck, but I did a summary of their book here

Ultimately, this is where we need to go as a society. If individuals throughout the millennia have used magic to form this reality, how do we start to use magic to form ours?

Below is a review of the 2006 documentary “The Secret,” painting a historic depiction of how “The Secret” has been used to rule empires and civilizations. 

The year is 2023. We just got out of a worldwide pandemic where we got a glimpse of how flimsy this idea of “choice” and “democracy” is since we witnessed government totalitarianism show and bare its fangs.

Currently, our foods are being infused with GMOs as the future of food is moving towards lab-grown products while our natural food industries are being destroyed. Our health is being reduced as we have vaccine-related injuries and corporate-fueled gender-identify crisis – all as we inhale aluminum and barium in our air as we try to stop climate change. What a time to be alive!

However, this is the time to be alive. The time of chaos and destruction we live in has been described from multiple divined – deriving from the technique of divination, to foresee – literature such as the Book of Revelations, or more specifically, the Kali Yuga. In the book The Chaos Protocols by magician Gordon White, we read the following:

“Sometimes I go to the Hall of Asian Antiquities in the British Museum, sit on a bench, and think about the Kali Yuga. According to the Mahabharata, the great Hindu epic, this is the age in which we currently live. As a two-thousand-year-old description of the modern world, it is unsurpassed in its dismal accuracy… According to the yuga system, to be born during the Kali Yuga is to have the most challenging incarnation possible. Yet here we are! Congratulations on your amazing timing.

…If there is one upside to living in the Kali Yuga, it is this. According to Hindu belief, because the world has fallen so far from its original, elevated state, you need only chant Lord Krishna’s name once to eventually achieve salvation. The gap between a person and that first mantra is greater than the gap between the second and the ten millionth mantra.”

To me, this is very similar to the “faith of a tiny, little mustard seed.” Another example would be the faith of a “tiny little stone” to be used against an enormous giant, identical to the story of David and Goliath. And just like David, we face before ourselves a gigantic course head. However, this should be encouraging because it doesn’t matter how big the enemy is. As long as we have a little bit of faith or utter our first mantra, we will see success and be victorious.

When we define success, we need to have an accurate view of reality. To do this, we need to understand both aspects of nature: the orthodox and those unorthodox themes – lest we encounter the law of reality inertia (wishing for something but not knowing what goes into that wish). Overall, however, the takeaway is that we can use these laws of nature against the challenges set up against us.  

A possible example of using techniques against challenges can be regarding the new control grid being developed known as CBDCs. As this threatens to enact new control over us, one could use the powers of visualization, projecting, and forecasting to meet financial goals, such as making 50,000 in alt-currency, so you’re not bound by CBDCs. Essentially, we would be using these magical aspects of reality to opt out of whatever future these oligarchs have for us.

We can use these unorthodox themes to create rewarding careers that provide a way out of future control grids. We can begin to live in a world where there’s no geoengineering in the skies (a SAI-free zone) and where we can breathe fresh air. We can live in a reality where no chemicals can be sprayed on our food. Where we have our own land and grow our own food, free of GMOs.

This is the reality we can build, and ultimately, Nature might be calling for us to create this reality. As we see in nature, for example, with Yin and Yang, there’s always been a balance. While, as of late, we’ve seen this destructive force tearing down nature, it may be that now – possibly the prophecies of 2012, 2020, and many others – Nature is calling out to each and every one of us. To rise as those creative forces to help balance out nature.

That, my friends, is the point of this article. I hope that as you read this article and become more aware of our reality, you’re also encouraged as to how powerful you really are. You reading this article alone is a synchronistic event, and as Richard Grove’s once said, “Synchronicity: nature approves of this endeavor.” Things are tough, but as a good book says, “with the faith of a mustard seed, we can move mountains.”

This concludes my analysis of The Brave New World of 1984. I want to thank The Pulse for providing me this platform, and I want to take everyone who took the time and attention to read, comment, like, and share these articles. Both positive and constructive feedback is welcomed.

If you’re interested in learning more about these unorthodox themes of magic, I invite you to start with my course. There’s a free preview of three PowerPoint presentations with over an hour’s worth of information. Also, feel free to upgrade to my member-only content, where I write specifically on magical techniques I’ve come across and how to apply them in your daily life. (Ex: How to Tame our Ego)

I’ll close with two of my favorite life quotes. Returning back to magician Gordon White, we read the following:

“Fully engaging with the world as it is, on both a material and spiritual level, will quickly show you just how flimsy consensus reality actually is. One little push and materialism falls away like spring snow sliding off a roof. So there is an inherent paradox in using the spiritual to accomplish the material. Incorporating the magical world into your physical world will quickly show you which one is real and which one is delusion. And that realization is more valuable than all the riches of the earth.”

And from the Academy of Ideas and Leopold Kohr, we read the following:

“…the real conflict of this age… is no longer between races, sexes, classes, left and right, youth and age, rich and poor, socialism and capitalism – all hangover confrontations from the past. The real conflict of today is between Man and Mass, the Individual and Society, the Citizen and the State, the Big and the Small Community, between David and Goliath.”

Thank you again for your time and attention, and I wish you nothing but luck and success in life’s journey. Ase!

Questions to Reflect and Speculate on

  1. When you accept the unorthodox notion that magic has real-world effects, you begin to wonder, “could the British colonization of the world be the manifestation of the magician John Dee and many others (e.g., Cecil Rhodes)?”

  2. To what attempts and extremes has our current reality been fabricated to produce and indoctrinate this nihlistic society?

  3. What future life do you envision for yourself? Is it one that’s your best life? Where you use your individual skills to create a life that’s life-promoting and in tune with nature?

The Brave New World of 1984, Part Two


Welcome to the three-part analysis of The Brave New World of 1984. This is Section II of three. You can find part I here.

For Huxley’s reality to take place, two components needed to happen. One, there needed to be a collective ideology that united the population, and two, there needed to be a way to get people to “love their servitude.”

A hedonistic culture needed to be established for individuals to love their servitude. In the YouTube movie Brave New World, you see that society has those two components: the population all thinks alike, and two, they love and have easy access to pleasure, which is described as hedonism.

From the Academy of Ideas, we read that:

“Hedonism is an ethical position that maintains that life’s ultimate goal should be the maximization of pleasure and the minimization of pain and discomfort. A hedonistic lifestyle…weakens people, it makes them feeble and incapable of mounting any resistance to fanatical ideologues who desire to rule over society.”

We’ve mentioned how unorthodox Huxley was in his studies of animal magnetism. Still, he was also well-versed in the latest scientific studies. This shows how Huxley firmly understood and knew nature and how it works.

Here at Unorthodoxy, we do something similar. We study unorthodox themes such as magical principles, e.g., the power of goal setting, and apply them with the latest studies on productivity to manifest the life we want to live. 

Regarding those scientific studies Huxley was familiar with, we are now introduced to psychologist BF Skinner and his groundbreaking scientific studies on rats. Interestingly, there are a lot of rat studies out there because these rat studies can mimic what will happen to human populations with great accuracy. If you’ve seen a study done on a rat, just know that the study’s endpoint may have been intended for humans.

Skinner, who is another Machiavellian, was able to show how rats’ behaviors can be changed by positive or pleasurable reinforcement. In his book, Skinner dives deeper into this matter. From the Academy of Ideas, we read the following: 

The following passage from Skinner’s book Walden Two, however, reveals that such mass-conditioning would in reality make possible a pernicious form of tyranny – one in which the masses would be enslaved, yet feel themselves to be free.

“Now that we know how positive reinforcement works, and why negative doesn’t, we can be more deliberate and hence more successful, in our cultural design. We can achieve a sort of control under which the controlled…nevertheless feel free. They are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do. That’s the source of the tremendous power of positive reinforcement—there’s no restraint and no revolt. By a careful design, we control not the final behavior, but the inclination to behave—the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that in that case the question of freedom never arises.” (B.F. Skinner, Walden Two)

At this time in American history, around the 1950s, we must remember that hedonism was not the norm in American culture. In the article, who are the bad guys, we see how the traditional values of a country must be broken down. We can see how agencies like Hollywood worked with the Government to instil in the population this sexually pleasurable society

This “love for pleasure” has been in work for the last 50 years, and now that technology has caught up, we have the ultimate pleasure devices right at our fingertips. The Academy of Ideas has the following quote that describes Huxley’s pleasure-seeking perfectly: 

What Huxley called “non-stop distractions of the most fascinating nature” were used by the state as instruments of policy to drown the minds of its citizens in a “sea of irrelevance“.

In Huxley’s Brave New World, there was a medication known as “Soma.” Soma was set to provide the individual “a holiday from reality.” In today’s world, I would use my pharmacy background to explain that we have the same drug known as “PleasaurRant” which stands for “pleasurable irrelevance.” And it also does what Soma did: plugs us into a hedonistic mindset with endless distractions filled with dopamine for us to escape from reality. 

But as stated earlier, there are two parts to Huxley’s reality. We’ve mentioned the first being hedonism and now the second being collectivism. Sticking with the Academy of Ideas, we read that collectivism can be defined as: 

…a doctrine, or a set of ideologies, in which the goals of a certain collective, such as a state, a nation, or a society, are given precedence over the goals of individuals. Socialism, communism, nationalism, and fascism are all collectivist ideologies.

We’ve been engrained through public education that we live in this democracy. Sure, we have Democrats versus Republicans, but the idea that we are in a democracy and have the choice lessens the notion that there is no way we have an oligarchy where this ruling class is in control. However, multiple studies have shown that an invisible ruling class is pulling the strings, with the most recent being from Princeton University. This is known as oligarchical collectivism.

Oligarchical collectivism is a system in which an elite few under the guise of a certain collectivist ideology centralize power using force and deception. Once in power, these oligarchs crush not only the economic freedoms of their citizens… but also their civil liberties.

Yes, we do have two sides in the Democratic Party and in the Republican party, but if we look close enough, what we can see is that these sides are both sides of the same coin. We never really focus on the true invisible class pulling the strings.

Another form of magic is known as “karmic retribution,” in which the individual casting the magic frees themself from negative karma because they informed the individual they were casting a spell, and the individual consented to what occurred. This is what we see in “Eyes Wide Shut.” A movie that informs the viewers of this invisible oligarchical class that runs society. 

 And so, since we cannot see this ruling class under the guise of democracy and notions such as governmental checks-and-balances like judicial, legislative, and executive, we’ve had this idea that totalitarianism would never come to our society. Even the Academy of Ideas back in 2017 had the following quote:

Orwell did not believe the totalitarianism which he feared could emerge in a society without it first becoming collectivist. So perhaps what has prevented his fears from coming true thus far is that capitalism did not die as he believed it would and collectivism has yet to emerge fully formed in the West.   

The year is now 2023, and as you all know, we have the collectivist idea of “trust the science.” This collective idea – which Huxley stated might need biological warfare – unified the world in 2020.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is how the world that Huxley envisioned came to fruition. Not the boots of Orwell in 1984, even though he may have had a better story, but Huxley, in combination with his unorthodox knowledge and scientific studies, was able to accurately predict and assist in creating his reality and funding the ultimate revolution.

This concludes part two of the series, and in part three, we will learn how to be like Huxley. We see how Huxley’s predictive programming was effective, and you can now see predictive programming being used elsewhere. For example, the World Economic Forum (WEF) laid out its predictive programming for 2030 in the following released letter.

That WEF post has the predictive programming idea we’re seeing in infrastructures being built with concepts such as 15-minute cities and CBDCs. We’re also seeing the climatic world of What Happened to Monday being constructed as we have daily stratospheric aerosol injections in our air. And yet no politician seems to discuss this.

This is why what matters is our life, and we will need to take control of our lives with our hands. With that being the case, if magic is a part of nature and is being used against us, is it possible for us to work with nature and magic to create the reality that we want?

That is what we will address in part three of the series.

This concludes Part II of the three-part analysis of The Brave New World of 1984. You can find Part I here.


The Brave New World of 1984


In my newly released course, An Unorthodox Truth to our Reality, I discuss how our perception of reality has been distorted. We’ve been given a scientismic, materialistic view of reality when, in actuality, there’s this mystical, magical, somewhat unorthodox view of nature and reality.

Arjun Walia’s article on the elite and dark magic is a very profound and insightful piece on how this unorthodox view of reality, and themes such as magic, can have real-world implications. 

One technique I consider a form of magic is the technique of predictive programming. In this article, I discuss how predictive programming has been used in our society. In my article on climate change, we read that: 

“Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by our leaders.

If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening possible public resistance and commotion.”

– Alan Watt.

I’ve realized that the arts – music, literature, and movies – play a vital role in predictive programming. Using the ancient practice of mimesis, the arts place these “planned societal changes,” such as a dystopian future, as images into the psyche of the population. For example, multiple movies feature this dystopian future. iRobot is one example, harping on transhumanismReady Player One, and its screen-based virtual reality society.What Happened to Monday and its climate change fiasco, and finally, The Circle and the concept of complete and utter mass surveillance.

As moviegoers, we watch these movies and leave ecstatic because the hero won and the day was saved, but that’s not the point of the illusion. The fact is that for three hours, you’ve been introduced to a dystopian future. So whether the bad guy won or lost, the dystopian future is still established in your psyche. A fascinating topic is how the novels of HG Wells and the movies of Staley Kubrick, both in the 1900s, introduced for the first time the population’s psyche to this “galactic” idea known as “space” before we actually “explored space.”

So today, we’re going to examine two of the biggest novels in American History that have recently gained notoriety. These two novels have such profound elements of predictive programming in them that they mirror a possible dystopian reality in the current world that we live in. These literature pieces are Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and George Orwell’s 1984

These two novels share a similar theme: the ruling class has total control over the masses. With both books being different but somewhat similar, there was some contention as to who, Huxley or Orwell, would be right. So much so, in fact, that Huxley sent a letter to Orwell telling him why Brave New World was the superior novel.

I recommend watching the three-hour movie Brave New World on YouTube because, as corny as it is, it paints the future that we live in.  

And so, in this series, we’ll first start by exploring that letter from Huxley to Orwell as to why Huxley was superbly right but, more so, how he was more accurate in his prediction. We’ll show how Huxley blatantly calls out his knowledge of unorthodox topics such as hypnotism and combines them with leading scientific studies of the time. This combination of unorthodox and orthodox views painted for Huxley the true nature of reality and ultimately gave him the upper hand.

In part two of this series, we’ll discuss how Huxley’s literature piece came to fruition. And then, finally, in part three, we’ll close on reviewing these so-called unorthodox topics and how to apply them in our daily lives. In my upcoming book, I argue that magic is a form of nature, and anyone can use it.

Arjun Walia introduces us to the concept of black magic and white magic. I want to introduce the reader to the idea of using magic on our behalf because, for one, whether we agree with the idea, notion, or possibility, magic is being used against us.

Magic is a very loose term that covers everything from miracles to spirituality, which we’ll briefly explore in this series, but more importantly, magic is the only way we can survive and thrive in the society they’re currently building. 

So first, let’s take a travel through time. The year is 1949, and after receiving a copy of 1984 from George Orwell, Huxley sends Orwell a thank you letter. Here we’ll examine the letter and pick up the insights between these two individuals. 

Huxley starts by giving Orwell cordial flattery, such as how excellent the book is. But after a few lines of flattery, he dives right into the heart of the matter. From the letter, we read the following from Huxley: 

Agreeing with all that the critics have written of it, I need not tell you, yet once more, how fine and how profoundly important the book is. May I speak instead of the thing with which the book deals — the ultimate revolution? The first hints of a philosophy of the ultimate revolution — the revolution which lies beyond politics and economics, and which aims at total subversion of the individual’s psychology and physiology — are to be found in the Marquis de Sade, who regarded himself as the continuator, the consummator, of Robespierre and Babeuf.”

What I found very interesting about this aspect of the letter was that Orwell and Huxley appear to be on the same team. They fit the analogy of individuals known as “Machiavellians.” Named after Niccolò Machiavelli, the idea derives from his work, “The Prince.” From Wikipedia, we see that:

“Machiavelli’s Prince has been surrounded by controversy since its release. Some consider it to be a straightforward description of political reality. Others view the Prince as a manual, teaching would-be tyrants how they should seize and maintain power. Even into recent times, some scholars, such as Leo Strauss, have restated the traditional opinion that Machiavelli was a “teacher of evil.”

Machiavellians were individuals who understood society, understood that there was an oligarchical ruling class, and looked to help that elite class. And we get that sense from Orwell and Huxley in this letter because it appears that both individuals are headed towards what’s known as the ultimate revolution. 

Interestingly, we’re talking about Orwell, who also wrote the book “Animal Farm.” These books, Animal Farm, 1984, and Brave New World, which we had to read from public education, all have a specific theme. YouTuber Michelle Gibson has a great analogy about these books.

What’s also interesting about this ultimate revolution are the founding fathers that Huxley mentions. I was unaware of these individuals, so doing a quick research on them, I found that they were actually very sadistic. It’s certainly odd that Huxley and Orwell, in this communication, appear to look positively at these individuals, but then again, this machiavellian class seems to have a different view of reality than the rest of the population. 

Nevertheless, returning to the letter, Huxley informs Orwell why he’s doubtful that the world of Orwell’s 1984 would come to fruition, but then Huxley hints at a new discovery that he’s found. From the letter, we read the following: 

“My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World. I have had occasion recently to look into the history of animal magnetism and hypnotism, and have been greatly struck by the way in which, for a hundred and fifty years, the world has refused to take serious cognizance of the discoveries of Mesmer, Braid, Esdaile, and the rest.”

Throughout the research on my book, I came across the physician Franz Mesmer and his work on animal magnetism and hypnotism. Most individuals know Nikola Tesla, but no one seems to have heard of Mesmer. 

From my manuscript, we read the following; 

As we go throughout history and come upon the Post-Enlightenment mark, which is around the 17th and 18th centuries, we’ll start closer to the end of the 18th century with a German physician named Frank Anton Mesmer. Mesmer’s contribution to magic was his healing practice called “animal magnetism,” a “fluid” that connected all living things. From Radin, we read the following:

Mesmer’s idea was similar to Paracelsus’s “cosmic fluid” or archaeus, the yogic concept of prana, the Chinese chi or qi, the Lakota tribe’s wakan, Greek philosopher Pythagoras’s pneuma, Austrian psychotherapists Wilhelm Reich’s orgone, and so on. The concepts of a living or “vital force” permeates the esoteric traditions.

Mesmer’s fluid and healing practices weren’t just for show; they had real-world applications. So much so that he became widely popular. So popular that the French Academy of Sciences (chaired by the American Benjamin Franklin) investigated him in 1784. After the investigation, there wasn’t any evidence for this fluid – but the medical effects were real

So Huxley is very familiar with Mesmer’s work on animal magnetism. He states that since no one takes these concepts seriously, the ultimate revolution was not accomplished earlier – actually, it was delayed by “five or six generations.” Huxley goes on to say that the lack of individuals like Sigmund Freud being unable to prove hypnotism led to more people not taking it seriously and ultimately delaying the ultimate revolution. However, this opportunity has fallen into his lap.

To show how small but powerful this machiavellian class is, Sigmund Freud is Edward Bernays’s uncle, whom I mention in multiple articles. Bernays is the father of propaganda, which he transitioned into public relations. Bernay’s great-nephew is Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix.

Huxley is hopeful, and he’s hopeful because technology has caught up to make Mesmer’s work possible. Staying with the letter, we read the following: 

But now psycho-analysis is being combined with hypnosis; and hypnosis has been made easy and indefinitely extensible through the use of barbiturates, which induce a hypnoid and suggestible state in even the most recalcitrant subjects.

Within the next generation I believe that the world’s rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience.

In my course, I mentioned that we must understand that the word “government” is a fancy word for this ruling class that controls (govern-) the mind (-ment) of the population. Huxley, as a machiavellian, knows this, and he’s realized that with his study of unorthodox topics and their knowledge, he can significantly assist in accomplishing the ultimate revolution. 

This letter was written in 1949, 73 years ago. It’s time to look to see if Huxley’s predictive programming book and this dystopian future came to a realization. Interestingly, in his letter, Huxley states that a large-scale biological war or atomic event would need to occur to make things more efficient. This “unifying event” is what we’ll be discussing next.

This concludes Part I of  The Brave New World of 1984. You can find Part II here and Part III here.

Ten Insights from “Don't Believe Everything You Think”

I just finished the book by Josh Nguyen called Don’t Believe Everything You Think, and I was blown away by its insights.

It was a short book, around 100 pages, and it was an easy read. I’m starting to realize that, even though the truth can have many faces, it’s still delivering the same message: truth.

The lessons I received from the book were insights I was already experiencing in other facets of life, as I documented in my hundred-day unorthodoxy challenge.

This post isn’t necessarily a book review but expands on the profound wisdom I found. To have those similar insights, I recommend reading the book alongside the articles I reference throughout this article. 

The ten insights I found live transforming are as follows:

  1. Clarity is our natural state of being

  2. We don’t have much clarity in our day-to-day mental space

  3. The difference between thoughts versus thinking

  4. The voices in our heads

  5. Separation from God when we think

  6. Staying in the here and now. You know what to do

  7. Seeing time from a new perspective

  8. Trust in the realm of the unknown realm of possibilities

  9. There are no wrong keys on the piano

  10. We don’t live in reality. We live in a perception of reality.

This statement might’ve been the most significant insight for me. At our baseline, the natural default state of our mind should be one of clarity. We should be operating from a mental space of peace, love, and understanding because these are traits of clarity.

The biggest reason this was so profound to me was that I had to take a step back and realize that if my natural baseline is supposed to be clarity, without confusion or anxiety, why don’t I spend much time in a clear mental space of thinking?

After the first few chapters, I started to evaluate my thoughts and realized that I didn’t have much clarity in my mental space.

This realization was a concept I explored in my article, The Tyrant King, and I wanted to understand why my thoughts were always racing. This yearning inspired me to take a deeper look at society, which I detail in my article our ocularcentric society.

But the one thing that was very insightful to my mental space was learning the difference between thoughts and thinking. In this sense of the word, described in the following insight, thinking is unnatural and a result of our ocularcentric society. The act of disembodiment is why we don’t have much clarity in our mental space.

Once I learned how to differentiate thoughts from thinking, I can now look to better myself.

In the book, thoughts are described as nouns. Thoughts are things. They’re there. When we look at the thoughts in our heads, they come, pop, and they’re gone.

Thinking is described as a verb. It’s doing. You don’t have “thinks” in your head; you are thinking. It’s an active process.

This insight was very transformative because once you know the difference between thinking and thoughts, you start to get a better picture of that natural, inner, divine voice within you and those external voices that have found their way into your psyche.

Take The Challenge

I realize that we’ve lost how to listen to ourselves. We don’t know what we sound like and think every thought in our head is ours. I explain in my article the power of the mind and the soul that soars.

By knowing how to differentiate between our thoughts, which are divine, and our thinking, which is a result of our ego, we can get a better picture of what is what.

Thoughts, which are natural, come from that place of peace, love, and understanding, and they have these feelings associated with them. Thoughts bring clarity.

Thinking, on the other hand, places us in a fight-or-flight mindset. We have anxiety; we begin to overthink and hyper-think and become over-analytical.

Thinking brings those feelings of anxiety, flustered, pressure, and racing to the point of being a hypochondriac. These feelings aren’t natural, and your feelings are a vital indicator of if that entity in your mental space, your thoughts, or your thinking of thoughts, is truly yours.

We can be divinely inspired from inside or externally illusioned due to the results of our ocularcentric molded society. As the father of public relations mentioned, we have ideas suggested by men we’ve never heard of.

Within the book, there’s a passage that reads that the ancients viewed separation from God as anxiety, suffering, and agony. If we apply this analogy to our psyche, the ancients will say that we were in hell whenever we felt suffering, fear, anxiety, and agony.

Our being in hell let us know we are not aligned with the divine. When we engage in thinking, we actively separate ourselves from the source and begin to walk through life alone. It’s no surprise that we see neuroses and psychoses rise as more people report feeling alone in society. We’re experiencing a literal hell because we’re thinking, and as the ancient said, we’re separated from the divine or God.

This insight was powerful, and so was the solution.

For us to return to our natural state of clarity and peace, love and joy, we must stop thinking. Those negative thoughts begin to dissipate when we become aware of our thinking and know where our thinking comes from. And there are two things that we usually think about: the past and the future.

Joshua states the divine source is never in the past or the future; the divine source is in the now. Right here, right now, is where the Divine is, and by bringing our minds to the present, we can reconnect to the divine and return to our natural state.

One of the pieces that I mentioned in the ocular society is how our screen devices have taken our minds out of our bodies and placed them elsewhere.

This process is similar to 200 years ago when we had the traveling circus with the gypsies and the magicians. The magicians would distract the audience with their trickery, pulling the audience’s mind to whatever they chose.

These traveling circuses would have a hall of illusions, ancient relics, and items from the future. This circus was the entertainment of sorts, the entrapment of the mind, 200 years ago.

It captured the public; it deceived the public. But eventually, the traveling circus would leave town.

In our current society, we visit the traveling circus daily. This transference of the mind, the process of disembodiment, occurs hourly. Back then, you went to the show; you were disembodied, and the illusionist would take your mind elsewhere. In today’s society, our minds are taken elsewhere all the time.

To combat this disembodiment, we must attempt to stay in the present, and we do this by relying on intuition. Intuition is when we just know what to do. Intuition is also known as the gnosis, that divine knowledge.

By being in the present and bringing our minds into our bodies, the answers to whatever we’re facing just pop, like the divine thoughts and downloads they are.

And we know that they’re divine, or natural, thanks to the peace and understanding that comes with them.

I realize that I would spend a lot of time in these over-analytical scenarios in my head. I explore this in my unorthodoxy hundred-day challenge.

I soon noticed that time was passing me by while I was thinking. So, I started to look at time from a new perspective. I realize that we have 60 seconds in a minute, but we also have, on average, 60 heartbeats in a minute.

This concept is reminiscent of my article on fear and death. It makes all the difference when we start looking at time as a measurement of our life. I also realized that our perspective of time was old, which reminded me of the Roman dynasty. Our days are pagan in origin, and possibly our time could also be.

It made me ponder that if those indigenous cultures didn’t have this Roman, Latin system of time, how did they view the world? How did they view reality? Was a day simply a day, and if you don’t know if today’s Tuesday or Thursday, was the day simply a day? Do concepts like the weekend, where we’re weakened from five days of work, seem relevant?

To make myself more aware, I started to ask myself, do I want to spend the next 60 heartbeats I have in hell when I’m thinking? Or should I trust my intuition and intelligence by staying in the present?

We spend so much time thinking that it has become our “new normal.” This panic-driven, anxiety-lazed, thought-raising spectrum is what we consider normal because this is the society that we live in.

However, this is not normal, and it’s not natural, and we need to natural inner, in the present, peaceful voice, is unknown simply because we know anxiety.

Since it’s unknown, our minds don’t want to go towards that natural route, which is why we always revert to thinking and agony because this is our normal, albeit false normal. Here is where the concept of faith comes in, which I described in my challenge. You must know your intuition is moving in the right direction and will lead you where you need to go.

And we access that intuition by stopping thinking, being present in the moment, and listening for those intuitive thoughts that drop into our soul with peace, love, and understanding.

I’ve learned that we have to make space to receive these thoughts. To do this, we must stay in the present, being embodied and removing information that comes to take our minds elsewhere. By doing this, we can receive insightful and thoughtful downloads that can have profound effects on our lives.

One way we can reduce the amount of overthinking and the pressure that leads to overthinking is by looking at our life as a piano. There are 88 keys on a piano, and you cannot say there’s a wrong or bad key on the piano – it just may be played out of place. This piano analogy is an excellent metaphor for our life. There are no good or bad choices—just decisions, just “piano keys.”

By listening to our intuition, we can play our life’s piano to the best of naturally inspired knowledge of what we should do in everyday situations. By trusting in our decisions, knowing there is no wrong or right decision, but being naturally led, we begin to see this wonderful masterpiece unravel in front of our eyes.

A lesson I learned from the book Thinking Fast and Slow, ultimately comes down to judging your decision based on how you made it, not how it turned out.

If we make our decisions from a place of peace, love, understanding, and clarity, we begin to see reality from a different perspective.

Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional. What makes us suffer is our thinking of our experiences.

We can view them in a thinking way, and from that perspective, we have all the symptoms that come with them, such as the pain, the agony, the hell. Or we can view them from that thoughtful view and see how experiences and events are opportunities for us to grow, learn from, and explore this life journey.

This understanding ultimately comes down to the fact that we do not live in reality but in a perception of reality. This ethos is the core of my upcoming book, An Unorthodox Truth.

Once we know our reality for what it is, we can change our perspective on reality. By understanding the difference between thoughts and thinking and where thinking comes from, we remove the illusion of reality.

Once we understand the difference between thoughts and thinking, the difference between our divine thoughts and egotistical thinking, we change our perception of reality.

Those are the tenants that I got from the book. Strongly recommend reading it because it’s a short read. I also recommend reading my article on the ocularcentric society so that you know how the elite gave us our thinking perspective.

We must understand the hows and the whys of this labyrinth we currently inhabit. If this article provided you with some insights, please share this with someone to encourage dialogue and intellectual conversations.

We need to be more insightful, more intelligent, and more thoughtful as a culture, and it all starts once we stop believing everything we think.

1) Would you say that most of your time is spent thinking fast, racing thoughts? Anxious, flustered thoughts that place you in a state of fight-or-flight?

2) How much time in your day do you spend in clarity? Our natural default state of peace, love, and understanding?

3) Do you understand how our ego, the Tyrant King, leads to these compulsive, reactionary thoughts that tie up our mental energy?

4) What can you do today to stop thinking negative thoughts and start experiencing and receiving insightful genius-driven thoughts?

How “Trust the Science” Became “Question the Science”


On October 31st, The Atlantic released a piece titled, “Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty. Let’s focus on the future, and fix the problems we still need to solve. Just like that, the last two years are over; let’s get amnesty and move on like nothing ever happened.

While researching this article, someone mentioned how interesting it was that the term used was “amnesty.” Not forgiveness, but amnesty. I agree that this was an interesting choice of words, so I looked into the word’s meaning.

According to Websters, we read the following:

Amnesty: to pardon (someone) officially, often before a trial or conviction.

That is quite an interesting choice of words because there is no trial or conviction here. But if there was one, who would be on the stand? Would it be the scientists who mandated laws that caused more harm than good? Or would it be the media companies who silenced so many voices?

Amnesty may be the right choice of words here because those scientists and media played a massive role in negatively affecting individuals through these mandates and censorship. Many individuals lost jobs, family members, and more due to the last two years, and many scientists and media outlets who pushed down the laws of the past two years are starting to realize that.

This attempt by the Atlantic to say, “we were wrong; let’s move on,” looks like their way of admitting that specific policies were wrong. We’re seeing Twitter end its “misinformation policy” and how USA Today turns on Dr. Fauci after his statements suggest that schools continue to lockdown.

So there are some things that the media outlets are taking responsibility for being wrong on. But let’s look at other aspects that the media seems to forget about.

Topics That Still Need To Be Addressed

Sure, everyone agrees that schools shouldn’t have locked down. Multiple studies have confirmed the harmful effects, particularly suicides. But other topics remain. For one, there’s the efficacy of masking: do they work or do they cause more damage? Even the author of the Atlantic piece remarks how during the pandemic, she and her family wore cloth masks outside — only now to realize that had no effect.

But the main topic that avoids the spotlight is the amount of censorship and shamming that took place by the media.

The pandemic lasted from 2020 thru 2022, and in 2022, Webster’s word of the year was gaslighting. Here’s how the term is defined:

: psychological manipulation of a person usually over an extended period of time that causes the victim to question the validity of their own thoughts, perception of reality, or memories and typically leads to confusion, loss of confidence and self-esteem, uncertainty of one’s emotional or mental stability, and a dependency on the perpetrator. 

Based on this definition, what do we find if we look at the previous two years and self-reflect? Was there a manipulation of the masses over an extended period? Did the news, media, and government consistently barrage the public with instructions regarding their safety?

From the public’s perspective, did we begin to question our thoughts and our perception of reality? Did we suffer great confusion, loss of confidence, and emotional and mental instability that was dependent on the perpetrators, which in this case, happens to be our media and government?

If we ask ourselves these questions, the answer is an overwhelming yes. Not only did intense gaslighting occur, but the mandates that followed were nothing short of an authoritarian regime. By experiencing both an authoritarian regime and intense propaganda gaslighting, similar to the days of Stalin and Hitler, could this be why we hear the call for “amnesty” instead of “forgiveness?”

This question is indeed something to think about.

Why We Need To “Question The Science”

On November 10th, 2022, a congressional caucus met to discuss the pandemic response and invited, among others, a professor named Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. Like many other doctors who spoke out against the pandemic measures, Dr. Bhattacharya has had his academic career derailed for questioning the science, even though he’s been proven to be correct.

Dr. Bhattacharya makes the following statement during this caucus response:

“The primary source of the most important problems and misinformation have come from the federal government itself. The primary source of misinformation has been the federal government itself. It’s used its power to manage the spread of information in social media. It’s used effectively propaganda techniques in order to destroy the reputations and careers of people who spoke up to try to correct these ideas and information.”

Just like Dr. Bhattacharya has had this career negatively affected for speaking out against the mainstream media and government officials, another Stanford professor, Dr. John Ioannidis, was destroyed by the mainstream media for questioning the science of the pandemic.

Dr. Ioannidis has received many prominent awards, such as, in 2010, being featured in The Atlantic special edition about “Brave Thinkers,” claiming that “Ioannidis “may be one of the most influential scientists alive.” Fast forward to 2021, and we have an opinion piece titled “What the heck happened to John Ioannidis?” that described his pandemic statements as “inflammatory and politically charged,” even though he was also proven to be correct. 

Even I, on the writing platform Medium, had my account shut down because my articles questioned the official narrative.

But unfortunately, as voices like Dr. Bhattacharya, Dr. Ioannidis, and others were being silenced, real harm occurred and is still occurring. We already discussed the damage to mental health caused by school closings, and now, we’re hearing more. Heart problems in young men, menstrual changes in women, and the list goes on and on.

And while platforms like The Atlantic ask for amnesty, countless individuals have had their lives impacted. Either they’ve had two years of their lives gone, shutdown alone and away from society, or worse; they’ve had their lives changed forever by the decisions forced upon them by those media and government officials.

This fact is why we need to question the science. The act of science itself is to question. There cannot be one disseminating voice that hails itself as “the expert” because when it comes to science, many voices offer many possible explanations. Science is not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Ultimately, by questioning the science, we become sharper. We become smarter. We engage our critical thinking faculties. We display more independent ability and confidence in ourselves, eliminating the effect that gaslighting has on us. Questioning the science is how we ultimately become better, well-rounded individuals.

This ethos is the core of my theoretical science section and why we should question science. In the last two years, we’ve seen how trusting the science has led to “the science” asking for amnesty. Sure, some may forgive, but hopefully, many will not forget.

We must not forget because, as the next pandemic looms around the corner, we’ll be faced with another case scenario. Should we trust the official science? Or should we question it?

That next pandemic is already around the corner; however, it’s known by a different name. This pandemic is the health threat known as climate change. 

And we’ll address it in a future article.
