‘Processed Reality: Pitfalls of Perception and the Cosmic Mind’ (Scholarly Articles, Vol. 21), 2017, provides a systematic elaboration of all possible distortions of the direct perception of reality, and the various factors or pitfalls that bring about this distortion. Among them are factors that are related to the nature of the memory matrix, but also outside factors such as spiritual, ideological and emotional pitfalls.
The perhaps most important part of the study is the chapter on ‘The Myths of Worldwide Democracy’ where the author unveils one by one the current myths of postmodern international consumer culture. These myths form the underlying basis of the masses’ credo in a new form of pseudo-spiritual salvation that is cunningly weaved around a prosperity vocabulary, quick wealth formulas, the promise of the beneficial actions of multinational corporations and worldwide communication, and last not least the pretended liberalism and protective thinking in the education of children.
The essay reveals by and by what is behind the beautiful façade: the hard reality of lies, systematic manipulation and political cover-up, stringent emotional and sexual misery of our youth, an almost total ecological, systemic and spiritual myopia and an immense amount of structural violence that begins to suffocate us with the ever-increasing prison miles and mental hospitals built for those who disagree with the general mindwash and whitewash of global political, social and economic realities.
While the most recent ideological promise of total freedom is surely a more joyful plot than the Church’s Inquisition a millennium ago, it is based on exactly the same lies and fairy tales, the same projections, the same reductionist agenda of fascist values that intrinsically deny complexity and holistic thinking, reducing life and living to the consumption of products that are industrially manufactured and marketed worldwide by multinational corporations.
The worldwide consumer reality as the author unveils it in this essay is based on facts: it is the raising impoverishment of the poor and the third world, a decreasing quality in education and the alarming fact that global problems are becoming merely administered instead of being at least half solved. To unveil these myths is one of the major tasks of every responsible citizen.
The examples the author forwards are inspired by his experience as a law practitioner specialized on international law, criminal law and human rights.
In the last chapter, entitled ‘Creating Reality,’ the author demonstrates how to create your own reality and build a redundant immunity against the manipulatory messages of the global beast that could one day condense in a holocaust worse than Hitler’s and all preceding massacres committed against lucid, non-judgmental humans. The violence potential of postmodern international consumer culture is surely much higher than any of the tyrannies we have suffered in the past, as it’s global, technological, cunningly subtle, and a joint-cooperation of the political leaders of most of our very advanced Western democracies.
