It is funny how easily the past becomes the present. The future of the mind is all about what happened in Atlantis so long ago, and our right to think, to choose, and to be.
In Atlantis, may thousands of years ago, a battle raged between two factions, one of which wanted power for personal gain while the other wanted power in order to preserve peace. The weapons of the latter group were spiritual values: the armoury of the former group was an intent to control the souls of the Atlantean people though control of their minds, and it was the implication inherent in this scenario that caused God to intervene to ensure this did not happen, for the subjugation of a soul could lead to the control of Spirit. Atlantis had to fall.
Everyone who lived during those eventful times is present on Earth now, for we are re-playing the epic, true play in a different, modern dress but with the same themes as then. Materialism is pitted against altruism, and this is our chance to reject the forces that could destroy our race and our planet through their drive for wealth and power at any cost, and to demonstrate that, at last, we have learned the lessons of Atlantis.
The use of power can be insidious: we see it being wielded through the manipulation of money and politics; through the dominance of the corporates who control the global energy supplies, the media, and our health; through the huge arms businesses that encourage war; and through the systems that encourage state dependency. It is wrong that the development of free, green energy is being stopped by groups with vested interests, and that “healthcare” increasingly is being imposed on us; that governments can tamper with our water and require vaccinations and other chemical interventions, while forbidding many natural remedies and practices. There should be choice, and increasingly our right to decide is being taken from us.
Since Atlantis fell our ability to think freely has largely been allowed even though there have been times when attempts at forcible persuasion to believe a certain way have been made, often for religious or political reasons. More recently the growing use of drugs and medication to treat them is changing how the minds of recipients work, and it is alarming to learn the extent of the long-term effects of even a cough mixture on the brain. A new development takes mind-control to another level altogether, as scientists like Professor Michio Kakiu talk about the ability to photograph thoughts and dreams – all mental activity – with a view to re-inserting and re-using the thought processes at a later date, or storing them forever: Professor Kakiu calls it a form of immortality, “a library of souls”, but I see huge dangers in this control of the mind, and of consciousness, and of people, with much potential for abuse.
If the mind of the future is one that is programmed, the human individual has become a robot. Remember Atlantis, please.
