Mythology vs. Politics
I read a psychological paper recently that intended to determine the directional cause effect relationship between mythology and organized political structures.
The idea is to understand whether mythological stories came first, and from them arose a political structure, or whether the political structure came first and from them arose the mythological structure.
The idea might help create future colonies by first engineering the correct mythological structures that might support them.
A researcher recently completely a decades long investigation into cults.
They wanted to find the basic similarities between all cults.
They didn’t restrict their study to traditional cults like Jim Jones, Charles Manson and Heaven’s gate.
They also looked at business leaders and self help gurus who have a cult like following.
Self Hypnosis Preacher
There is a preacher who has a very powerful method of creating his weekly sermons.
He puts himself in a trance, and creates an intention for the amount of money he would like to collect for that particular sermon.
The amount is given to him by his accountants and charity outreach organizers who determine where the money will be best spent.
Once he puts himself in a trance, he gives his sermon, he collects that specific amount, but he never remembers what he talked about during the sermon.
A very powerful marketing technique was developed shortly after World War II.
It’s widely accepted and recognized that many Nazi and Japanese scientists avoided war crimes by working for the United States government after the war.
What’s not well known is that the Nazi Propagandists also avoided prosecution by working for the government, and later the advertising agencies.
It’s generally believed that advertisers target individual triggers to sell thing or create obedience.
Individually Not The Best
Things like authority, scarcity, social proof and other well known triggers.
What’s not known is that there is a much more powerful way to control the hive mind of any society or group of people.
That this method is much more effective than individual triggers.
It does take a while, and it does take a while to change the direction of the hive mind, not unlike steering a large aircraft carrier.
Everybody Obeys The Hive
But once the authorities are in rapport with the hive mind, the individuals will be unconsciously obedient to this hive mind.
Whatever this hive mind does or thinks, the individual brains within this hive mind will unconsciously obey this.
And because our brains have a post event rationalizing function, everybody will come up with their own story as to why it is their own rational decision to do this.
Even more interesting is they’ve done plenty of experiments with suicide cults.
Suicide cults are really experiments in the extent of hive mind led obedience.
They take 50 to 100 people at random, and create a hive mind collective, and then program that hive mind collective.
Once the hive mind collective is programmed, the individual constituents will go right along with it.
Including murder, suicide, and cannibalism.
Temporary Angel Assistance
What he does is he gets into rapport with the angels and creates a metaphorical collective.
And when he speaks, he imagines his imaginary collective is speaking to the temporary collective of his congregation.
The interesting thing is not only does he collect the precise amount he intends, but he doesn’t remember the sermons, nor do his parishioners.
Always The Queen Bee
They found that central or any organization of any kind of a charismatic leader.
And they really are only two kinds.
One kind is a full blown cult.
Where there is nothing binding the group together other than the charismatic leader.
Two Kinds Of Death
The second has all the indicators of a cult, but it’s constrained to some kind of business or service.
Cults that are constrained by some kind of business or service, tend to lead to bankruptcy, but sometimes not for a long time.
Cults that are not constrained by a business or service eventually lead to mass suicide, or assumption to another plane of existence.
Which is, of course, many times the same thing.
Effect and Cause Interchangeable
They found that there is no clear way to determine what is cause and what is effect.
All political organizations can be described in terms of their associated mythology.
And all mythologies can be described in terms of their associated political organizations.
They Think We’re The Myth
Which leads to the startling conclusion.
From the political organization standpoint, mythologies and religions represent a metaphorical origin story.
But from the mythological or religious frame of reference, political organizations are just as metaphorical, and represent their origin story.
Which suggests there are, in actuality, two planes of existence.
What we call reality, and what we call mythology.
We Are Characters In Their Story
But from within the side of mythology, they see themselves as the reality, and they see us as the mythological side.
Which means that everything we think of as true in our reality, may in fact, be a collection of stories created by the gods.
That we, and everything we think is real, are only characters in stories created by entities we think don’t exist.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
