What is Reality? What is Truth?
The government and space agencies try to fool by changing what is reality and, therefore, change what is the truth. As flat earth believers, we know all about this. It is most evident in the phony pictures that suppose to show space and other planets.
Is reality nothing more than a matter of perspective – different for one than it is for another? No. Reality is a matter of perception. The accuracy of your religious/political position depends upon your personal perception of truth. The way you perceive truth determines whether you are seeing fantasies or facts. But, how can you tell? How can you be objective about your own perceptions?
The search for reality is more than just finding truth. It, in fact, is a search for how to perceive. There are many false prophets out there waiting to hand you illusions. But reality just not only be seen – it must also be perceived. We all see reality, because reality is all around us. However, very few of us actually perceive what we see.
Perception is an art that most people never learn. In fact, most people are taught NOT to attempt to perceive – because they are not qualified (authorized). They, instead are told to accept the official answers already perceived by licensed and authorized perceivers (the prophets, priest, and it today’s world, teachers, scientists [so-called] and government officials). We are told “don’t question or analyse.” Rather, they are to memorize the authorized answers. They are spoon fed the official view of things and told to accept it because it has been authorized and officially deemed “true and factual.” It has the official stamp of approval on it. If people spend years accepting and believing the “official” views, then any theory that deviates from their official view falls into the category of “wacko.”
This patented process robs us of our ability to perceive, and removes our ability to analyse. We can’t discern truth because we can’t ask the right question. The right questions are unthinkable; un-askable. To even ask puts you under suspicion.
But understanding and believing in conspiracy theories (or even questioning official doctrine) is not “wacko” behavior. The rest of this article will show you one way you can develop the art of perception in your pursuit of truth. This article will be from an artist’s perspective.
Drawing And The Art Of Perception
One way to explain the process of perceiving truth is to compare it with the process of drawing a picture. The art of drawing pictures is more clear-cut than the art of perceiving truths nonetheless there are some parallels that can help us understand.
Now, admittedly this section is rather long but please bear with me as this will help explain how our perceptions are changed.
In 1979, Betty Edwards published “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.” In this book she documented cases where students who didn’t think they could be taught to draw were remarkably transformed by the end of six weeks, and were turning out drawings comparable to “highly talented” artists! This was done, not by teaching them how to draw, but by training them how to perceive.
The basis of Betty Edwards’ research on the subject was a study of the two hemispheres of the brain. Her research suggest that the Left hemisphere of the brain:
- 1 Uses words to name, describe and define (Verbal).
- 2 Figures out things step by step an part by part (Analytic).
- 3 Uses symbols to stand for things (Symbolic).
- 4 Chooses a little information to represent the whole thing (Abstract).
- 5 Keeps track of time and does things in sequence and by priorities (Temporal).
- 6 Draws conclusions based on reason and facts (Rational and Logical).
- 7 Favors the use of numbers (Digital).
- 8 Thinks in a straight line where one idea is linked to another (Linear).
Compare how the Right hemisphere of the brain is different from the Left: The Right hemisphere of the brain:
- 1 Uses non-verbal cognition to perceive.
- 2 Puts pieces together to form wholes.
- 3 Relates to things as they are, at the present moment.
- 4 Sees likenesses among things; understands metaphoric relationships.
- 5 Has no sense of time.
- 6 Doesn’t require a basis of reason or facts; wiling to suspend judgment. Makes leaps of insight, often based on incomplete patterns, hunches, feelings, or visual images (Intuitive, Non-rational).
- 7 Sees where things are in relation to other things and how parts go together to form a whole (Spatial).
- 8 Sees the complete picture all at once; perceiving overall patterns and structures.
Obviously, the Right Hemisphere of the brain gives you what you need to be an artist. The Left Hemisphere gives you what you need to critically analyse things. The problem with people who have difficulty drawing is that their Left Hemisphere dominates their thinking and blocks access to the Right Hemisphere. Hence, there are many people who say “I can’t even draw a straight line.” These people assume that their powers of observation are working fine but they just have no talent to draw. However, it turns out that their powers of observation are not working fine, and the blame does not lie with their drawing ability.
Artists, inventors and creative thinkers in any profession often have the ability to use both sides of their brains as they shift from the Left Hemisphere to the Right Hemisphere, thereby perceiving things both ways. As a result, they tap into the creative process, creating artistic masterpieces and inventing new ways of doing things. When they come up with a list of new ideas they then shift back to their analytical Left Hemisphere and decide the validly of the new ideas. These learners use more of their brains than people who are merely “schooled.”
In Betty Edwards’ book, she tracked the drawing history of most children. We all start out wanting to draw. As we develop our drawing skills we make a basic discovery of art: a drawn symbol on a piece of paper can stand for something around us. For instance, a child draws a circle, adds two dots for eyes and a curve for the mouth and calls this symbol “Mommy” or “Daddy.” As we grow older and continue to drawing, we adopt and solidify more and more symbols for the things in our environment. These are actually “symbols” because they beat little or no resemblance to the real things. When we draw symbols for cats, dogs, birds, houses, cars, etc., we are using our Left hemisphere to perceive things.
At age four or five we relate to stories by the way we draw people and things. At age five or six we have worked out a set of symbols we use to create a landscape. At around 10, we try to capture more detail in our drawings in order to achieve more realism. By age 11 we have a passion for getting the right details into our drawings. Boys often draw meticulous renderings of race cars or airplanes and girls draw complex dress designs or careful drawings of horses or other animals.
This is the stage that many of us become discouraged with art because, even though we have added many details to our drawings, they still aren’t looking realistic. Many of us never find the answer as to why we can’t achieve realism in our drawings, and we assume that we have failed in the actual drawing rather than in our perceptions of things.
The truth is, we are not seeing things accurately, and that is why we can’t produce an accurate drawing. But what is it that prevents us from perceiving things accurately?
Part of the answer is that, as children we learned to see things in terms of words and symbols (Left Hemisphere perception). The dominant symbol hemisphere doesn’t like too much information about things it perceives; just enough to recognize and categorise. The left brain learns to cover quickly because it has to process such an enormous volume of incoming information that it must screen out most of it. This works most of the time because it helps us to focus our thinking.
But the ability to draw pictures requires that you look at something for a long time, perceived many details, and register non-verbal, non-symbolic information.
The impatient Left Hemisphere says, “It’s a table (or a chair, bird, car, etc.) and that’s all you need to know. In fact don’t waste your time looking at it because I have ready-made symbol for you to use.”
The problem is that our own personal system of symbols has been embedded in our memories, so we keep drawing the symbols we have learned rather than drawing what we are actually seeing in real life.
By the time we become teenagers most of us become frustrated with drawing. We would like to draw details, but our Left-brain-thinking has worked so hard for so long solidifying a large library of ready-made symbols of people, places, and things that it keeps getting in the way of our Right hemisphere non-symbol perception.
When adult art students “don’t know how to draw” they do not really perceive what is in front of their eyes. They simply take a quick Left-brained note of what’s there, then they translate that into words and symbols based on their stored archives of words and symbols developed during their life. The resulting drawing doesn’t look realistic because it is a graphic symbol rather than an accurate rendering of the object.
The Elite who controls the world know about this; they know that the average person doesn’t like details, so a simplistic message is given as to what happened – such as the “lone gunman” in a school shooting. When, in actuality it was a grand conspiracy by the Elite who have other hired gunman positioned through the school to make sure enough people are killed; the CCTV cameras were conveniently not working; a mind control student was used for him to the “fall guy;” crises actors are used to make like there was only one gunman; staged demonstrations are set to protest ownership of guns; laws are already drawn up to put into place; and the list goes on and. All of this, is TOO MUCH INFORMATION for the brain to handle, so a symbol is made – so to speak – that it was a lone gunman who did the killing, his name is Mike Pollaski, for example, and that he is a Right-wing Christian fanatic – all of whom should be locked up if not killed. Then, we’ll have no crime. So, make sure you are not a Christian seeking the truth.
Back to the art student…
When these frustrated would be artists enter Betty Edwards’ drawing classes they are given certain drawing exercises to perform. These exercises are designed to “turn off” the Left-brain symbol system so the Right-brain system can emerge and actually draw a picture.
One such exercise requires the student to take a complicated line drawing or detailed photo, turn it upside down, and then proceed to draw it using a pencil on a blank sheet of paper. At first, Left-brain-oriented people think it is crazy to turn a picture upside down to draw it! It’s amazing to see the reactions of people when they are told to do this exercise. They are simply flabbergasted. (Just like people are flabbergasted when they are told that the earth is flat, lol.) The exercise forces them to depart from the normal, traditional structure of thinking. “It can’t be done!” they protest. “Why in heaven’s name would you do such a thing?!”
What happens is that a difficult mental adjustment occurs in a person’s mind when he is forced to turn something upside down and draw it. And this adjustment doesn’t happen smoothly or quickly. When we perceive things, we automatically become accustomed to the top, bottom and sides of those things and we expect to see those things right-side up. When things are right-side up, we can recognize them, name them, and categorize them according to our large Left-brained archive of stored symbols. But when an image is turned upside-down, the visual clues become scrambled and don’t fit our preconceived symbols. The Left-hemisphere becomes confused and can’t associate the things in a picture with any of the symbols in its archives, arid it tends to shut down. Hence, people exclaim in frustration “this is crazy!”
But this is where, if the student has patience to continue drawing, the Right-hemisphere of the brain, which isn’t obsessed with associating pictures with words or symbols, takes over and simply perceives the anonymous lines, curves, shapes and tones that make up the picture. After having drawn a picture upside-down, Left-brain-oriented people will turn their drawing right-side up and gasp in astonishment at how much better their upside-down drawing looks than if they had tried to draw the picture right-side up!
The results are indeed astonishing. With the Left-brain symbols turned off, the students can perceive the reality that is actually in front of them, and they are able to produce a realistic drawing on paper – something they hitherto thought impossible! And with practice they get even better! After they have successfully made this mental adjustment and are comfortable with it, they no longer have to turn pictures upside down in order to shift their thinking. In effect, they now know how to automatically think “upside down” when they want to draw real-life objects around them!
When we are told stories of current events or past historical war events, it doesn’t make sense but we accept them and have learned not to question the narrative, for, if we do, we are called, nazi, Christian fanatic, etc. But if look at the “official story” in another light, from another angle, then things make sense; and we know what really happened. A simple case in point:
The so-called Christian Allies, walk arm-in-arm with the antichrists (the Soviet Union); when we go to war with another Christian nation but support the Christ hating Communists; when the U.S. and the U.K. say they stand for freedom, yet turn half of Europe over to the antichrists. This doesn’t make sense but we accept the narrative. Then, one day we “take our picture, turn it upside down and draw a better picture,” and WWII makes sense. Then we know who caused the war, why they caused it and the excuses used to fight our Christian brothers.
Now, back to our art student story…
What happens in these drawing classes is that:
A The teacher points out that there is a problem with their perception and that it (and hence, their drawing ability) could be enhanced if they will “turn off” the method of perceiving to which they are accustomed.
B The people reluctantly recognize they have a problem with their perception.
C This shifting of paradigms is encouraged by the teacher.
D The student dare to abandon their traditional modes of thinking and, after a bit of mental struggle, experience a shift from one mode of perception to another (from Left-brain perception to Right-brain perception).
E Detail is more accurately perceived and thus more accurately transmitted to the drawing paper.
Now, take this process for learning to draw and compare it with the process for learning logic (i.e., aptitude for analysing and discerning truth in history, politics, religion, current events, etc.).
As children, the moment we enter government school (misnomer: public school), we are started on a library of mental symbols to memorize. One by one, as the subjects come up, as the years go by, e learn a symbol for each subject.
9-11 (Symbol: Arabs brought the Twin Towers down with commercial planes.)
Pearl Harbour (Symbol: Japanese made a surprise attack. America did nothing to provoke it, thus they had the right to declare war on Japan and Germany.)
Guns (Symbol: Guns kill people; outlaw guns and the killing will stop.)
Earth (Symbol: The Earth is a globe and one of trillions of other planets out there.)
Planets (Symbol: Big Bang. Everything started with the Big Bang, and Evolution. Therefore, there is no need for God.)
The list of learned mental symbols impressed into our minds – in the form of the spoken and written word, pictures and videos – goes on and on. These symbols come with the associated script that you don’t even have to think. The symbol is shown and the story is automatically attached and you dare not question it. As there are obstacles that can block students who want to learn to draw, there are also obstacles that can block you from learning to perceive the truth.
A Instead of teaching you to critically analyse ideas, pastors and bureaucrats merely reaffirm the symbols memorized from childhood that is repeated 1,000 times.
B You remain stuck in the paradigms designed and authorized by the establishment. Anyone who thinks outside the box is called a “wacko” or “fanatic” by the bureaucrats and a “heretic” by the churchgoers.
C People don’t divert from the facial symbols (authorized paradigms) and therefore they see only what they are told to see.
D The conspiracy of the prophets and priests, described in Ezekiel, still works for enslaving the masses.
Learn to Think Upside-Down
The analogy of drawing a picture upside-down to achieve more accuracy applies to thoughts as well. If you tell people that they may benefit from turning their perceptions of religious and governmental issues upside-down, they may think, “This is crazy!” as did the students in the drawing class.
Can it help turn our thinking upside-down? Sometimes it can. People may assume they already know how God thinks, but unless they turn their thinking upside-down once in a while thye may be missing the point – because God’s thinking is often the opposite of man’s thinking. Consider this verse:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways says Yahweh. Is. 55:8
Look at the following examples of the opposite or “upside-down” way God thinks compared to the way men think. These are God-given clues to show peole how to escape from established paradigms that don’t work.
The Straight and Narrow
Men tend to evaluate issues based upon the number of people who agree with it rather than by logic and sensibility. The greater the number of people who agree, the more correct it is deemed.
But here’s the upside-down way God thinks:
Enter you in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and spacious is they way leading to destruction, and many are they who through it:
Because narrow is the gate, and tight is the way, leading to life, and few are they that find it. Matt. 7:13-14
The Weak Confounds The Strong
Most people would think that the stronger opponent always overcomes the weaker opponent; the more intellectual always wins over the not-so-intellectual, etc. But here’s the upside-down way God thinks:
27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise; and God chose the weak things of the world to put to shame the strong.
28 And God has chosen the things not produced of the world, and things considered as nothing; and things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are.
29 That no flesh should boast in his sight.
1 Cot. 1:27-29
I could go on and on, but I’m sure you see that the point is that God’s ways are different than man’s ways. Just about every doctrine issue that is taught in the churches are wrong. They are wrong because they are not “politically correct.”
The Media Tells Just the Opposite
In order to get yourself out of this false reality, this matrix that we are kept in, there is one way to see through it or at least to start questioning what you are told. Look at what is the opposite. Take the school shooting at Sandy Hook, look at what we are not told, what we are not shown. Look at what others have said; does it make sense.
Lies are one way of keeping us under control but, of course, an explanation is given for why things are so. If you look at the medical profession, we are told that you need to see a doctor, you need to take some man-made medication, that you need surgery. Finally, you are told that there is no cure for ________ (fill in the blank). Then consider that this is man’s ways; think of what God has provided. Look at what you can do for yourself naturally, look at the herbs and food that God provides for us as our medication. Think of going to Him in prayer and fasting for healing.
Symbol: The medical symbol of the snake, means we should go to the pharmacist or to see a doctor. Then think of the other Symbol, The Cross.
Opposite Shape of the Earth
Is not the earth the opposite shape of what we are told? I believe this is done for a reason – to make us think that we are one of billions out there; that God is far removed; that we have to go it alone. And later, The Big Bang and Evolution came along and fits right in with a Universe that has no God.
The Reason Why Jesus Spoke in Parables
Most people think that Jesus intended for everyone to hear His Kingdom parables; that His message is for everyone. They assume that his purpose was to convert the enemies and the antichrists (more than one), and make them understand. To typical man, that sounds like the right way to proceed. But here’s the “upside-down” way Jesus thinks:
11 And he said to them, To you the mystery has been given of the kingdom of God: but to them that are outside, all these things are done in parables:
12 In order that looking, they might look but not see; and hearing they may hear and not comprehend; at no time will they repent and be forgiven.
Mark 4: 11-12
The parables were spoken by Jesus for the purpose of letting his disciples learn while confusing the enemy. They were cryptographic, like coded messages – designed to be understood by those who had “ears to hear” but not understand by the devils who might be listening.
We Don’t Choose Jesus; He Chooses Us
How many times have you heard pastor admonishing people choose Jesus; to make a decision to follow Jesus? But the fact is that we cannot, on our own, choose Jesus. Rather, Jesus chooses us and we merely respond. Here is the “upside-down” way he thinks:
16 You did not choose me, but I chose you, and ordained you, and I appointed you to go and bear fruit,…
Turn Your World Upside-down
Making the mental adjustment of turning your thinking upside-down shouldn’t be viewed as such an odd or risky thing to do. It will not make you a “wacko!” True, it is not easy; you have to develop a habit of looking at things that the media tells you in a different light. When you do, it’ll be easier to overturn the larger man-made symbols filed away in your mind.
The next time you hear about an event that happened – current or historical – notice how you’ve been trained to react. Notice the labels they use to anyone one who does not believe their story line. Notice how people react when they are told they are: nutters, racists, conspiracy theorists. They want us to recoil and deny what we have been labelled. When we do, then we are “good little boys and girls.” Well, don’t let those names affect you; maybe you should be proud to be called this and continue to look at what the opposite is. When you do, you will get closer to the truth.
The media trains you to pooh pooh any conspiracy theory without even giving it any thought. When you do, you are reacting to exactly the way the government/educational system/media wants you to react. Stop right there and turn your thinking upside-down. Entertain the concept that this conspiracy you just discovered could be true, and start investigating and researching it. You may discover you have been the victim of a conspire to deprive you of the truth.
Not only can you learn more by avoiding the Establishment schools, but you can also learn better by avoiding the Establishment churches! If you find you are one of those who can successfully deal with the upside-down thinking then you may suddenly find yo have a thrist for reality; for what’s REALLY out there – THE TRUTH.
