  1. The Muhammadan Way Sufi Realities Who is sitting on your throne? Lessons about destroying the ego/self from the film Revolver by Guy Ritchie. Revolver End Scene - Revelation ...
  2. Genuinely surprised after searching that the topic had not been raised before. Here's a very brief overview of the 9 types. https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/type-descriptions This forum gives off a lot of 5 and 6 energy. David Icke himself is often typed as a "6w5", which seems plausible. Because i deem this a 5 and 6 energy forum, i predict the first thing you'll attempt to do is tear it apart. Mystical nonsense, etc. Here's my claim and counter to that - i would spend a week or more with you in person, and get a 1 in 18 shot right first time from a test you've taken. Gotta admit, it's hard not to feel an ego boost when i pull this off in real life. Anyway, have at it. I'll try to answer any questions.
  3. - It is often assumed that people who deceive others do it to get something tangible out of it, like lots of easy money for example - In actual fact, Psychopaths are very often OBSESSED with being the GREATEST at everything - They HAVE to feel, for example, that they are MANY MANY TIMES SMARTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, otherwise they go INTO A DAMAGING EMOTIONAL CRISIS and their ABNORMAL EGO BEGINS TO FRACTURE - One way to PROVE to their fragile ego that they are SUPER-SUPER-SMART is to go to great lengths to DECEIVE or TRICK someone else - When the the plan works and the target is successfully deceived, the Psychopath FEELS UNBELIEVABLE FEELINGS OF SATTISFACTION and of PERSONAL POWER, because he or she has PROVEN HOW UNBELIEVABLY SMART he or she is by planning and pulling off an elaborate deception There are many public figures these days who TELL OUTRAGEOUS UNTRUTHS to millions of people and SEEM REALLY HAPPY ABOUT DOING IT AFTERWARDS I believe that BEING ABLE TO DECEIVE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE makes these people feel like a GOD-LIKE INTELLECT, A SUPER-GENIUS, A SUPERIORLY CAPABLE MIND THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE I also believe that it turns them into CRACK ADDICTS of sorts, having to STAGE PERIODIC DECEPTIONS in order to FEEL OVER AND OVER THAT THEIR GENIUS IS ABSOLUTELY REAL Sound plausible to anyone?
  4. We keep discussing here WHAT the rich and powerful are doing to humanity. How about a discussion of WHY they are doing it? What goes on in the MIND and PSYCHE of those who are powerful? I personally find this useful to understand power: https://www.choosingtherapy.com/signs-of-a-psychopath/ 1. Superficial Charm & Charisma Psychopaths can be very charming, charismatic, and persuasive people. This can be especially so with female psychopaths, who are more social and emotional than their male counterparts. While they lack true empathy, they are often very skilled at “faking” prosocial behaviors like flattery, kindness, and false sympathy. They may use these skills to get things that they want from people, but eventually they are unable to keep up the act. Over time, the charm and charisma will probably wear off, unmasking an underlying coldness or cruelty.1,6 2. Unnecessary Cruelty or a Mean Streak Once the superficial charm and charisma wears off, a psychopath will often demonstrate moments of cruelty or meanness. These may include gossip, biting comments, lashing out aggressively at others, or laughing or being entertained when they hurt or embarrass someone. Cruelty and meanness are hallmark signs of a psychopath, and often lead to a pattern of violating the rights of others.1,3,6 3. Lies, Exaggerations, & Dishonesty Many psychopaths are prone to pathological lying. They may exaggerate the truth to get their way, inflate their ego, or get others to think, feel or do what they want them to. Most normal people feel guilty or at least a little worried about being caught in a lie, but a psychopath’s lack of conscience makes lying a guilt-free activity. In fact, deception is even a listed symptom of ASPD, and can even show up as a person ‘faking’ remorse, empathy, or care and concern for other people.2,6,7 4. Lack of Accountability & Playing the Blame Game Psychopaths commit some of the most cruel, violent, and heinous acts in society, but they rarely take responsibility for their actions. Instead, they are more likely to blame other people, make excuses, and try to justify their actions, no matter how bad they are. This sign of a psychopath is indicative of their lack of morals, conscience, and empathy, meaning they do not have the same sense of ‘right and wrong’ that most people do.6,7 5. Need for Power, Control, & Dominance Many psychopaths seek out positions of power and authority because they enjoy domination and control of other people. According to some research, psychopaths are slightly more likely to seek out and secure positions of leadership in the corporate world, suggesting there is a grain of truth in the stereotype of the psychopathic CEO.8 There is also a known overlap between psychopathy, narcissism and Machiavellianism (immoral and exploitative tendencies), which can lead to a hunger for power and control.7,9 6. Sadistic Enjoyment of Pain & Suffering Sadism is a word that describes a sick sense of pleasure from the pain and suffering of other people. In some psychopathic people, the pain of others is sexually arousing and in others, the pleasure is non-sexual and has more to do with excitement, power, or the ‘rush’ of the experience.3,6,7 Not all psychopaths are sadistic, but this quality is not an uncommon trait in a psychopath, which may explain why psychopathic traits predict violent and sexually violent crimes with 80% accuracy.1 7. Boredom & Thrill-Seeking Behaviors Because psychopaths lack some of the normal emotional wiring that most people have, it takes a lot more to excite them, make them happy, or give them a thrill. Psychopaths are overall less impulsive than sociopaths because they aren’t driven by strong emotions, but their dulled emotional response may cause them to seek out thrills. This may be why psychopaths are more likely to engage in crime, violence, sexual promiscuity, and drug and alcohol use.1,3,6 8. Disregard for Rules, Laws, & Norms Psychopaths do not follow the same code of ethics as most people in society, which is why they often behave in immoral or even illegal ways. These may include minor offenses like inappropriate comments or profanity or more serious offenses like crime and violence. While not all psychopaths are violent criminals, a very high percentage of people who commit crimes (especially violent crimes) have psychopathic traits.1,5,6 9. Unaffected & Unafraid of Consequences While most people who engage in criminal behaviors live in fear of being caught, psychopaths don’t always have this same fear. This may be partially explained by the fact that psychopaths are believed to have abnormalities in areas of the brain that create normal fear responses, and also in the parts of the brain linked to impulse control and good long-term decision making.3,4 10. Detached, Cold & Callous Demeanor Researchers believe that psychopaths do not have the same emotional wiring as normal people, which is why they often display a cold, callous, and apathetic demeanor.1,6,7 The differences in the structure of their brains is believed to limit their ability to experience a normal range of human emotions, making them less likely to experience strong emotions.3,4 In situations when others are sad, upset, anxious, or excited, a psychopath may seem oddly detached or apathetic.7 11. A History of Childhood Behavior Problems Antisocial personality disorder can be diagnosed only after the age of 18, but the signs and symptoms usually begin in childhood or early adolescence.2 Most psychopaths show signs of conduct disorder before the age of 15, and the most severe psychopaths may be able to trace their behavioral issues to before the age of 10.5 Some common signs of a psychopath in childhood include frequent fights, lying, stealing, cruelty to animals or other children, and a disregard for rules or authority.2,5 12. A Trail of Short, Broken Relationships Psychopaths lack the ability to empathize with other people, so it makes sense that they have trouble forming and maintaining close relationships with people. While they may be able to use their charm or powers of persuasion to fool people into liking them, they usually lack the ability to maintain these relationships over time.7 This is why most psychopaths have very short, shallow relationships with people, as well as many people who they’ve betrayed, hurt, or turned into enemies. 13. Exploitation of Others for Personal Gain A psychopath will use, abuse, and exploit other people, especially when it means getting something they want. In their pursuit of power, wealth, fame, and so forth, there are no lengths they won’t go to in order to get what they want. This is bound to leave many casualties in their path, and a psychopath will have no remorse when they need to throw someone under the bus in order to get ahead, even when this is someone who has helped them along the way.1,3,5,6,8 14. Calculated & Strategic Planning While sociopaths are more driven by emotions, a psychopath is more cool-headed and calculated in their decision-making.1,3,6 This can make them more dangerous and because it’s not as easy to predict what they will do or when they will make their move. Some psychopaths devise detailed plans on how to con, exploit, or take advantage of people who are naturally generous, kind, and trusting. While psychopaths are not generally patient individuals, they are generally less impulsive than sociopaths.3,6 15. A Lack of Conscience Even when they harm another person, a psychopath will not feel genuine remorse for their actions, and they may not even be phased by the consequences of their actions when they get in trouble. This also makes them especially dangerous because they are less likely to limit their behavior based on fears of getting caught, feeling guilty after, and are also less likely to learn from their mistakes. 16. Abnormal Ways of Thinking Abnormal thoughts are common in psychopaths because their brains are wired differently. This could cause them to make strange, odd, or off-putting comments or observations during normal conversations. Also, a psychopath may occasionally provide a disturbing view into their twisted minds when talking about strange things they like, mean comments about others, or statements that make it clear they don’t care about other people. 17. Poor Attention Span & Loss of Interest One of the less commonly known signs of a psychopath is a poor attention span, which can show up in similar ways as symptoms of ADD or ADHD. A psychopath becomes easily bored with activities, tasks, and people, and is always looking for something more exciting or entertaining to do or see. This can also lead them to quickly lose interest in goals, projects, or relationships that seemed very important to them. This may also be linked to a pattern of irresponsible decision-making, or abandoning obligations or projects before finishing them.6,7 18. Violent Tendencies, Abuse, or Aggression One of the most dangerous signs of a psychopath is a tendency towards violence, aggression and abuse. Psychopathy is one of the strongest predictors of violent behavior, including violent crimes and sexual violence. Unfortunately, many violent psychopaths will re-offend, even after receiving treatment, rehabilitation, or serving prison time or having other legal consequences.1,3,4,6 19. Hostile & Oppositional by Nature Another one of the psychopath traits that is less commonly known is a hostile and oppositional demeanor. While psychopaths can pretend to be friendly, kind, and charming for a short time, their true nature is much more aggressive. Psychopaths are more likely to hold racist, sexist, or misogynistic views towards others, and also more likely to treat people in hostile or unkind ways.1,6 They may also be more argumentative and combative, seeking out conflict and confrontation (while most people try to avoid it). 20. Masters of Deception A final warning sign of a psychopath is a person who seems to be especially skilled at the art of deception. Psychopaths are masters of deception, and use lies, distortions of truth, gaslighting, and other dishonest tactics to emotionally manipulate other people and falsely represent the truth. Unfortunately, psychopaths in treatment may use these deceptive tactics to fool counselors and treatment providers into thinking they have improved. One study found that psychopaths with the highest treatment success scores were most likely to reoffend.9
  5. From Del Bigtree at The Highwire Mattias Desmet explains his theory of "Mass Formation" - which he doesn't refer to as Psychosis. He talks about some examples from the past and how it happens and why. Essentially - lonely people are looking for a connection, but instead of connecting with other people, they connect with a "cause" that they feel connects them to other people. The good news is that these groups always self-destruct. They become aggressive when opposing voices become silent, so it is vital that people continue to speak up. https://www.bitchute.com/video/I7qIytyACYQD/
  6. - Psychopaths often believe that they "incredibly special" and "above everybody else in everything" - They NEED to think of themselves as being the smartest, most capable, best looking, wealthiest, best dressed, most successful, most worldly, most elite, most influential person anywhere - When REALITY THREATENS to SHATTER this ILLUSION in any small way, they get ABNORMALLY ANXIOUS - What? What? That man is smarter than me? No! No! Not possible! Not true! - Because they need to be the BEST in 50 DIFFERENT WAYS ALWAYS the THREATS ARE MANY and the THREATS ARE EVERYWHERE - ANXIETY! ANXIETY! I MUST BE NUMBER 1 ALWAYS! - The anxiety becomes EVERPRESENT and UNBEARABLE - It is the CHAOS OF THE FREE LIVES OF OTHERS that are the ROOT OF THIS - Only througy REGIMENTING EVERY ASPECT OF THE WORLD INTO SOMETHING TOTALLY PRESCRIBED AND CONTROLLED can the Psychopath finally RELAX and BASK in FEELINGS OF TOTAL AND ASSURED SUPERIORITY OVER OTHERS - Most Psychopaths are actually PITIFULLY FEEBLE INTELLECTS who LIE, CHEAT, MANIPULATE, THREATEN AND KILL THEIR WAY TO THE TOP - SMART PEOPLE can HANDLE DISORDER - It is the DUMB ONES who CANNOT
  7. Question for you: do you know anyone else that has family or friends that are addicted to strange video games and anime? and if so, have some of you ever noticed the direct correlation between what David is talking about here and how one can be pulled into a fake spirtual virtual realm of endless ''story time''? have you seen how they actually develop an emotional/ psychological bond between symbols and art while being promised a safe return to it's realm every day so long as they act a certain way and do as the government tells them? I'm talking about extremely anti-social people that more or less reminisce only with an online community of people who self-identify as video game charecters or fantasy word figures/things, people that are more than likely to advertise it over their ''anti-social faces'', to hide themselves from Human interaction. people with anger issues. ...Have you ever looked at websites like Fandom that host wikis for video games, movies, and bizarre content? have you ever looked at the Symbols it uses? It's almost like a form a WITCHCRAFT literally! google - what does fandom stand for? A fandom is simply a community of fans, be they online or off, active or passive. The word "fandom" is both a collective noun, describing many fandoms and subfandoms as one >giant body of fans< and a >singular one< referring to a single fandom. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Is it just me? or does that sound like and look like the Glue that holds this ''Woke'' mentality together and keeps it ignorant and passive-aggressive thus obsessed with technology and transhumanism? For the record, I have played quite a few storylines from the most popular video games over the years, (being an alone person myself and whom has suffered drug addiction) and I gotta say, I have really witnessed some DISTURBING content, the most bizarre coming from the ''Fallout'' series where you try to survive in a post apocalyptic world. the Grand Theft Auto series is insane, and don't even get me started on the ''Far Cry'' series...let alone the RPG's that they make now that is litterly like some form of damnable heresies where they create what i think is virtual cyberspace of biblical deceitfulness' designed by satanic animators and game creators/digital artists to infect the church. This Fandom CULTure is litterly like a form of hypnotic Witchcraft. I have often wondered sometimes if the developers are people like elon musk. (neurolink) and possibly other types of people that may have made or participated in popular tv series pop culture and technology development through sound and visual interaction over the years when designing pop culture. like psychologists with an objective to virtually assemble one giant fan base of artificial intelligence connected via the human brain. I believe it all started with this ''Emo culture''. emo meaning ''emotional'', that i think all started back in the late 70's early 80's or so... and then really came into effect during the pharmaceutical period of the late 80's early 90's, just around the time teens were starting to become increasingly Insecure and their self-esteem was being experimented with through new types of drugs, and TV/Film induced pop culture coma combined with low self esteem music to put the human spirit into a state of self doubt and depression. the period at which it was deemed ''sexy'' to have self inflicted cutting on your arm because it was seen and is still seen as some form of ''mark of culture'', a culture that should be talked about amongst people like myself and maybe yourself who may share that same mark. we need to talk about our issues if we are to ever fix them. and I'm a strong believer that the same people that have severe anger issues, self doubt issues, trauma and other types of mental illness are all at the hands of these entertainment developers and digital artists, that are programming them ''the children'' into separate groups ''fan bases'' if you will... to all instead of work together in recognizing the true virus that infects them, help the developer in assisting it's technological preservation rather than helping an expanded cautiousness like David's to destroy the main core of an evil technocracy. (and I was NEVER a religious person) but I'm becoming more and more religious/spiritual each day even though I'm not educated at all in the bible. in my opinion when i think of what happened in 1993 in waco for example, I litterly cry. why? I don't know why, i just do. I hope none of you hold that against me... ANYWAY let's get back to what i was saying previously. search ''fandom'' and take a look at the pictures, and tell me that is not some form of damnable heresies that possess the human spirit through technology/entertainment that they use to teach their version of ''biblical truth''. You may also want to look at Hopeanimation dot com to REALLY see how bizarre this gets and how it's connected deeply to what I'm describing. I have TRIED my best to explain this in a couple of videos that I made but I think it's so powerful that most people don't have the attention span to fully understand it or put the time into at least trying to understand it...because it really is a form of soul molestation that one has to have lived through in terms of being an alone and socially depraved, and depressed desolate individual like myself, (similar to the victims that suffer from this) to understand. I am convinced that the links to my youtube channel and its videos have been blocked by youtube from being shared on any website, and i get the feeling everything i interact with now on the internet is fake thus why there's absolutely no reaction. I would post links to my youtube channel again in this post but i think this wouldn't be visible if i did, let alone if it does become visible at all after i post this. because everything i post seems to be censored either by my internet provider or the government. I think they find me real interesting. here is some pictures relating to what I'm talking about in regards to this culture. is this really what being happy is supposed to be?
  8. I've been chancing upon useful information during my research into Schizophrenia, which I started some years ago. Over more recent time I developed the very credible theory that the current social crisis connects to known facts about social mass delusion. My current source is B.А. Гиляровский, (V Gilyarovskiy) who mentions facemasks as a symptom of psychological disorder. As here, where King Ludwig is referred to: "Those who sought an audience with him on reception were required to wear masks. " To simplify, illnesses such as Schizophrenia are distinct in diagnosis but the symptoms come from somewhere. That is, they are a human phenomenon. When delusional symptoms affect people in high social positions, there is far less resistance by normal people to the particular paranoid delusion. The masses accept it must be real. Here is the lesson of the King and his invisible suit which we can compare with Boris Johnson's testimony. Most people will scoff and state Covid is genuinely killing thousands of people but few psychologists today were taught correctly about psychosomatic symptomology. Psychological hysteria can cause severe respiratory symptoms. My estimation is possibly 75 per cent of global cases of Covid are mass hysteria with psychosomatic symptoms. People such as Angela Merkel really do not differ from King Ludwig. "In the sense of the impact on behaviour there are cases in which insane thoughts and desires arising from mad fantasies are more or less fully carried out in life, without meeting resistance due to the exceptional position of the patient. In this regard, the history of the disease of the Bavarian king Ludwig, which took place from the very degenerative family of Vittelsbach deserves attention. For a number of years, he suffered from schizophrenia with a large number of delusional ideas of greatness and persecution, which did not interfere with him for a while on the throne. Delusional paranoia and fear of people led to the fact that he spent whole months alone or at least not seeing a single person. Food came to him on the table, which with the help of a special mechanism was extended from under the floor. Those who sought an audience with him on reception were required to wear masks. "
  9. Heard today my brother's neighbour suffered a stroke 3 weeks after receiving her vaccine. Although nobody can prove a connection, the woman herself blames the vaccine. One other neighbour - a Jehova's witness - was shocked and "possibly" more likely not to vaccinate. There is more: On sharing this news today, one lady in a shop got upset with me and stormed off. "I'm sick of this conspiracy crap!" she yelled. What should be our attitude to those who follow official guidelines, often in the hope of future holidays? I think maybe the majority of us make mistakes. The psychology term here is "ambivalence" and was used to describe the schizophrenic thought process. This is where desire is split into two opposing opposites. The first desire may be to not have the vaccine. The second desire is to have the vaccine - the motive being this is justified by the ability to live a normal life. To justify this motive, the person reacts strongly against contrasting evidence. Put in simple terms self delusion. To refuse the vaccine requires acceptance of the fact we live in an unethical and corrupt society. That in turn requires resistance. It is much easier to delude yourself you actually want the vaccine. That nobody is forcing it. Everbody is having it. And yet, we know the truth is the ability to have any freedom at all depends upon set conditions. Governments claim they have the right to decide risk factors regarding medication and vaccines. Neither are these people scientifically literate. My own attitude is I feel sorry for the lady who suffered a stroke. If it was indeed connected. Now she has deep regrets yet there was nothing anyone could do.

  11. The Psychology of getting you to make the choice regarding the Vaccine. Blame, Judgement and Coercion. The tactics of the bully are being put to trial. Yale University is trialling/testing for the most effective way to 'Message' the populations to comply with taking a Vaccine - and it reveals not one vaccination but 2; 3 months apart. Full article and analysis at CoreysDigs - https://www.coreysdigs.com/health-science/vax-zealots-try-to-put-their-message-in-a-bottle/ EXTRACT: Vax Zealots Try to Put Their Message in A Bottle By James Fitzgerald The clinical trial states, under “guilt”: “1/5 of the sample will be assigned to this message. The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one’s family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don’t get vaccinated and spread the disease.” ----- The “trust in science” narrative states “Vaccination is backed by science. If one doesn’t get vaccinated that means that one doesn’t understand how infections are spread or who ignores science.” ----- It continues, under “bravery”: “… firefighters, doctors and frontline medical workers are brave. Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave.” “1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this group, which is a message about how COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the economy and the only way to strengthen the economy is to work together to get enough people vaccinated,” states a message on economic grounds. ----- FROM THE CLINICAL TRIALS GOV SITE U.S. https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04460703?term=Vaccine&cond=Covid19&cntry=US&draw=2 The Study says: "This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available." "We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms." Sham Comparator: Control Control message about birdfeeding Other: Control message 2/15 of the sample will be assigned to the pure control group, which is a passage on the costs and benefits of bird feeding. Active Comparator: Baseline message These participants will be assigned a message about the benefits of vaccination. All other treatment arms include this baseline language. Other: Baseline message 3/15 of the sample will be assigned to a control group with a message about the effectiveness and safety of vaccines. Experimental: Personal freedom Experimental message arm. Other: Personal freedom message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message about how COVID-19 is limiting people's personal freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its personal freedom. Experimental: Economic freedom Experimental message arm. Other: Economic freedom message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message about how COVID-19 is limiting peoples's economic freedom and by working together to get enough people vaccinated society can preserve its economic freedom. Experimental: Social benefit, self-interest Experimental message arm. Other: Self-interest message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message that COVID-19 presents a real danger to one's health, even if one is young and healthy. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way to prevent oneself from getting sick. Experimental: Social benefit, community interest Experimental message arm. Other: Community interest message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this intervention, which is a message about the dangers of COVID-19 to the health of loved ones. The more people who get vaccinated against COVID-19, the lower the risk that one's loved ones will get sick. Society must work together and all get vaccinated. Experimental: Economic benefit Experimental message arm. Other: Economic benefit message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this group, which is a message about how COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the economy and the only way to strengthen the economy is to work together to get enough people vaccinated. Experimental: Social pressure- guilt Experimental message arm. Other: Guilt message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this message. The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one's family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and society must work together to get enough people vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the guilt they will feel if they don't get vaccinated and spread the disease. Experimental: Social pressure- embarrassment Experimental message arm. Other: Embarrassment message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this message. The message is about the danger that COVID-19 presents to the health of one's family and community. The best way to protect them is by getting vaccinated and by working together to make sure that enough people get vaccinated. Then it asks the participant to imagine the embarrassment they will feel if they don't get vaccinated and spread the disease. Experimental: Social pressure- anger Experimental message arm.

Other: Trust in science message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this message about how getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the most effective way of protecting one's community. Vaccination is backed by science. If one doesn't get vaccinated that means that one doesn't understand how infections are spread or who ignores science. Experimental: Not bravery arm Experimental message arm. Other: Not bravery message 1/15 of the sample will be assigned to this message which describes how firefighters, doctors, and front line medical workers are brave. Those who choose not to get vaccinated against COVID-19 are not brave.
