The perils of sleeping with your iPhone
The ink of my recent article about living without a smartphone had barely dried, when I made a new and unexpected discovery.
Smartphones, it seems, are the gift that keeps on giving.
To appreciate the significance of this new finding, we first need to zoom out; so grab your beverage of choice and get ready, because this one is a doozy.
As most of you know, I study George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, not for literary reasons but because they provide good clarity about what is happening in the world right now.
Most people — even the authors — believe that Orwell and Huxley are antithetical. Orwell narrates a future dystopia of undisguised, physical oppression. Huxley’s dystopia, on the other hand, is veiled and psychological.
Truth is, Orwell and Huxley are complementary. World domination relies on a simple heuristic:
For those that comply, apply Huxley. For those that don’t, apply Orwell.
This heuristic works pretty much everywhere.
Let’s say you are a farmer. You work tirelessly to keep your cattle well fed, safe, and alive. If one animal, however, is causing trouble, if it is disobedient and has a mind of its own, what would you do with that animal? What have farmers always done?
“As any farmer knows, it’s usually the brightest goat in the flock that stirs up the most trouble, which is why the Agricultural Revolution involved downgrading animals’ mental abilities.”
Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari
A farmer keeps the obedient animals medicated and in relative comfort. In other words, he does what Huxley describes in Brave New World. But for those exceptional ones that don’t seem to get with the program he uses violence to remove them from the gene pool. In other words, he applies the Orwellian boot-on-your-face principle. One way or another, the ungovernable goat invariably ends up on his dinner plate.
Keep that in mind as we turn our attention to what happened in Maui.
Word has it that private land owners in Maui were unwilling to sell their properties off. As it turns out, certain corporate interests want to convert Maui into a “smart” island, but they cannot do that unless they own enough land.
This is not some pie-in-the-sky theory.
Back in 2018, the World Economic Forum were quite open about their vision for Hawaii (did you catch the warning at the top? The banality of virtue signaling never fails to entertain). But now, mainstream mouthpieces have to deploy their fact checking apparatus to convince people otherwise.
Let’s think about it for a minute. Why would anyone want to sell their house in Maui? And it’s not just Maui. Why would anyone want to forsake their place in the “island of eternal spring” that is Tenerife? For what? To move where? Central London?
No physical violence can ever be perpetrated on the masses because anything that is physical shakes people out of their stupor. Real violence is reserved against those who threaten their progress.
Look at what happened in Maui. Molten metal next to intact trees, burnt boats in the middle of the sea, surgically wiped neighborhoods. The punishment is as surreal as it is tragic.
And that’s how it needs to be.
Those who value freedom have to be wiped out. Their demise has to be fiery and it has to be televised. Fiery because it is an occult sacrifice; televised because that’s how you program the cattle, I mean the masses, with the clim4te em3rgency mind virus.
Mind you, what’s happening in Maui, Tenerife, and northern Canada, is hardly an exception. The fires, floods, and earthquakes seem to be going viral, just like c0vid did a couple of years ago.
The architects of “our democracy” are hellbent on corraling everyone into urban prison-hubs. Case in point: Amazon recently partnered with the island of Naxos in Greece to make Naxos a leader in the “smart island” arena. Here are just some of the fabulous benefits detailed in their press announcement:
These options include deploying drones to transport biological and pharmaceutical products and digitally tracking passenger ship arrivals and departures.
Color me impressed.
This playbook is consistent around the world:
Burn, flood, and destroy private property, whilst conjuring stories of “cl1mate emergency”.
Consolidate land and hand control to Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Cisco, Baidu, Alibaba, and Huawei.
Erect “smart cities” and saturate them with sensors, drones, smart cards, and retractable bollards.
Corral the masses into those centers.
As the “cl1mate emergencies” escalate (step 1), proceed to raise the bollards, locking down and restricting everyone’s movement.
Sedate, medicate, and entertain the compliant subjects. Reeducate the noncompliant.
Rinse and repeat, for ever and ever.
None of what I’m describing here is a figment of some consp1ratorial fantasy. All we’re doing is connecting the dots of what they explicitly tell us.
Which brings us back to Aldous Huxley.
Millions have read his Brave New World classic but very few paid attention to the follow up, Brave New World Revisited, which was written some twenty years later. It’s an essay that spills the beans on how a dictator could psychologically manipulate the masses.
In the original novel, the World Controllers place speakers inside the sleeping quarters of young infants to condition and program their minds before they join society.
In the Brave New World, no citizens belonging to the lower castes ever gave any trouble. Why? Because, from the moment he could speak and understand what was said to him, every lower-caste child was exposed to endlessly repeated suggestions, night after night, during the hours of drowsiness and sleep.
BNW Revisited devotes an entire chapter on this technique, called hypnopaedia.
But when subjects in light sleep are given suggestions, they will respond to them [ . . .] in the same way that they respond to suggestions when in the hypnotic trance.
And then the penny dropped.
Seek and you shall find. As luck would have it, hours after reading Huxley’s essay, I bumped into a YouTube video with links to articles claiming that our smartphones are already interfering with the dreams of billions of humans.
“Dream machine,” is how Apple refers to the Apple Watch. “The Sleep app doesn’t just keep track of your time asleep. It shows you how much time you spent in REM, Core, or Deep sleep, as well as when you might have woken up.”
Modern smartphones (and smartwatches) are “smart” enough to know when their human subjects are most suggestible and vulnerable. At that exact point, they can start emitting subliminal signals. Think of it as an evolution of Google ads but instead of showing up on your touchscreen they are broadcast inside your mind.
Some call it dream hacking.
Orwell’s 1984 had cameras and microphones installed in the walls of every home. In the 21st century, you don’t even need walls because the subjects carry Big Brother on their hands, wrists, ears and, very soon, on their heads. And they couldn’t be more excited about the prospect. As Huxley predicted, “people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think".
But let’s get back to dream incubation.
Because, make no mistake, when an admission of that magnitude makes it to mainstream news, it means that this technology is already at the confession stage of adoption, which means it was deployed a long time ago.
In retrospect, it all makes sense.
If you are old enough to remember life in the nineties, you probably know that humans used to make better decisions. All this mass-formation-psychos1s, face diapers, and the hysterics we witnessed in 2021 simply couldn’t happen some twenty years ago. Humans functioned better back then.
Which begs the question, what happened in those twenty years?
“Your new superpower,” is how Apple describes the iPhone.
Consider how such a promise works on the minds of young and naive millennials and zoomers.
But if you think about it, Apple’s promise is not that different to how movies, radio, and New Age worked on the minds of Baby boomers and Gen Xers. They were all given the occult promise of becoming powerful, enlightened, and elevated.
They were given the promise of becoming better than just human.
Any doubt what the Apple logo is all about?
“For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Ever since the so called age of enlightenment — but especially over the last few decades — humanity was the victim of a profound rug pull.
Millions of youth were fooled into fake knowledge, fake jobs, fake foods, fake clothes, and everything else that is fake, because . . . who has time for real things? Who has time to work the land, who has time to cook, raise a family, and do what is rightfully human?
We were duped into thinking that pure and simple humans are not good enough.
For decades, the road to apotheosis was liberating and deceptively easy. But now the trap has snapped shut. Everything we rely on for sustenance — food, water, and movement — has fallen into the hands of our predators. And if you think they have any intention of loosening their grip, you may want to think again.
99% of humans suffer from normalcy bias; in other words they are lame ducks. Truth is, there is no way back to how things were in 2019. That world was fake. In the real world, we are opposed by a group of global entities who are on a pious, ancient mission to take everything away from us.
“So, what can we do?”
From living without a smartphone, to purifying my water, mending my clothes and shoes, making my own toiletries, getting rid of anything that is plastic, and learning how to cook on a campfire, nobody can say I’m slacking.
But the more I pursue freedom, the more I wake up to the enormity of the work that lies ahead. In March 2022, I wrote:
I don’t know about you but I’ve spent my entire life plugged in the grid. It’s a symbiotic relationship. Any hope that I can somehow tear myself away from it, is romantic and naive.
There is a chasm separating my current state of dependency, and the sovereign state of self-reliance I aspire to reach one day. Expecting that I can somehow conquer that gap based solely on my own powers and effort is an exercise in frustration.
But here is the good news:
Help is at hand.
Not from some new “community” or some “enlightened” leader; but from God.
After decades of atheistic ignorance, over the last few years I began to appreciate just how important faith is. Everything else is downstream from that.
Strengthen your faith.
And, please, stop sleeping with your iPhone.
