Hailey has raised a very important question about the possibility – or reality – of ‘mind control’ and its potential out-going effects.
First of all Hailey, thank you for the question (a serious one for a change here!) and I will try and answer it to the best of my ability. Having said that, your question is very profound; but I considered it important enough to answer – or try and answer – on a main post . . . .and I was not even planning to do a main Blog post today!
It seems past due for a question now anyway, and this seems totally unrelated to anything that you wrote about, but I promised I would air some of my questions on your Blog– so, here it goes:
How do systems of control come about? This is a strange question that has been nagging me ever since you know who with the strange faked name began sending me his own counter letters: why do so many groups so vehemently oppose one another? In this, and this is a really crappy way to get a clear answer, how is it that, outside of ego, etc., truth is the most difficult thing to discern in the world? Why are personal agendas so important to people who claim to deal in metaphysics and spiritual entities, etc.? We already covered the ground of daily life and the troubles that pop up there: but how is it that men who work in ways that, in theory, should enlighten them, strive only to control and to contort?”
I think I asked this in a rather poor way– but words are strange tools, I suppose.
On pins and needles,
You know, you seem to be able to ask such profound questions so relatively simply Hailey! I am not ‘knocking’ that (indeed it makes a change from some questions I get here about ‘material matters’) but I will try and answer:
Firstly you asked how ‘such systems of control can come about’? That would be an almost impossible question to answer generally, but you did qualify it somewhat by explaining this was in relation to fake letters from a particular ‘cult’ – or rather individual – that you had received.
Speaking in general, this form of ‘control’ goes on all the time; whether it is from political parties or religious sects, or the result of general advertising, or whatever. I am not evading that point, but you may appreciate to deal with the general question of ‘mind control’ would be an almost impossible task.
I believe in this instance, however, you are referring to a specific example, which makes it somewhat easier. Let me say this, the screeds you received were almost certainly fake. They came from one person only, albeit using an alias as is his ‘status quo’. The person would be totally lost without the use of an alias; which is the only reason he has to employ one (or more precisely, several!).
You are right in observing that the person’s motivations are really ‘control’. That is, control over others whilst hiding his true identity. I happen to know the true identity of this person, Hailey, believe me! As many other people do. His views are simply not genuine, which is the main reason the person never dares to put his own name to them.
But to come back to your question . . . “ How do such systems of control come about?”.
Well, I think I have already answered this by pointing out that such ‘control’ is not always genuine. The reason for it? Well this is almost certainly due to the human ego; you know, that ‘I’ that likes to see itself as being ‘superior’ to everybody else sometimes. Such people have no real support; only that which they ascribe to themselves! I am not evading your question about ‘mind control’, only just answering it to the case in point.
If you really wanted me to go on to matters of the ‘human ego’, well that would be a different matter entirely! But I suspect, you are referring to the correspondence you received, which is why I have referred to its originator accordingly.
For the moment
