Is 'reality' a Hologram? "10. Apollonius of Tyana, writing as Hermes Trismegistos, said, "That which is above is that which is below." By this he meant to tell us that our universe is a hologram, but he lacked the term." - Philip K Dick in Tractates Cryptica Scriptura http://logoilibrary.com/ch-5-reality-theories/ Picture from "The Invisibles" Grant Morrison comic. #philosophy #spirituality #poetry #minds #art

“There is only one way and that is your way. There is only one salvation and that is your salvation. Why are you looking for help? Do you believe it will come from outside? What is to come will be created in you and from you. Hence look into yourself. Do not compare, do not measure. No other way is like yours. All other ways deceive and tempt you. You must fulfill the way that is in you.” –The Red Book, Carl Jung Find your way, known in the East is was known as the Tao; think for yourself, create your own reality. http://logoilibrary.com/book/ #minds #philosophy #spirituality #poetry #meditation

Philip K Dick: One of modern times most prolific writers, with many famous books such as: Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, The Man in the High Castle, Adjustment Team (The Adjustment Bureau film basis), The Minority Report and many many more. My favorite and what I consider one of, if not the most important writings, on understanding the nature of "reality" is the, Tractates Criptica Scriptura from his VALIS novel. http://logoilibrary.com/tractates-cryptica-scriptura/ Some Quotes from it: 1.One Mind there is; but under it two principles contend. 2. The Mind lets in the light, then the dark, in interaction; so time is generated. At the end Mind awards victory to the light; time ceases and the Mind is complete. 4. Matter is plastic in the face of mind. 10. Apollonius of Tyana, writing as Hermes Trismegistos, said, "That which is above is that which is below." By this he meant to tell us that our universe is a hologram, but he lacked the term. 11. The great secret known to Apollonius of Tyana, Paul of Tarsus, Simon Magus, Asklepios, Paracelsus, Boehme and Bruno is that: we are moving backward in time. The universe in fact is contracting into a unitary entity which is completing itself. Decay and disorder are seen by us in reverse, as increasing. These healers learned to move forward in time, which is retrograde to us. 14. The universe is information and we are stationary in it, not three-dimensional and not in space or time. The information fed to us we hypostatize into the phenomenal world. 21. The Rose Cross Brotherhood wrote, "Ex Deo nascimur, in Jesu mortimur, per spiritum sanctum reviviscimus," which is to say, "From God we are born, in Jesus we die, by the Holy Spirit we live again." This signifies that they had rediscovered the lost formula for immortality which the Empire had destroyed. "The Empire never ended. 41. The Empire is the institution, the codification, of derangement; it is insane and imposes its insanity on us by violence, since its nature is a violent one. 42. To fight the Empire is to be infected by its derangement. This is a paradox; whoever defeats a segment of the Empire becomes the Empire; it proliferates like a virus, imposing its form on its enemies. Thereby it becomes its enemies. 44. Since the universe is actually composed of information, then it can be said that information will save us. This is the saving gnosis which the Gnostics sought... 52 . Our world is still secretly ruled by the hidden race descended from Ikhnaton, and his knowledge is the information of the Macro-Mind itself... #spirituality #philosophy #minds #poetry #art

TELEVISION is to TELL-A-VISION: It has programs, in order to program the viewer. "Television is one the most effective hypnotic tools out there. It can have a huge influence on the way you think, the beliefs that you hold and consequently how your life turns out. Your subconscious mind, which carries all your memories and beliefs and makes you who you are, is directly programmed by watching television...Your mind slips into the hypnotic trance state within seconds of watching TV. This lowers your brainwaves to a lower ‘alpha state’ commonly associated with meditation and deep relaxation...Under this state of trance, your subconscious mind becomes highly suggestible and whatever information you receive from the TV becomes part of your memory pool. Since beliefs are nothing but memories, this information has the tendency to alter your beliefs or form new ones when it seeps into your subconscious mind. You might think the remote is in your hand and you’re watching the programs but, in truth, you are the one who is getting programmed..." https://www.psychmechanics.com/how-tv-influences-your-mind-through/ http://logoilibrary.com/ch-9-masters-of-manipulation-the-cult-of-inversion/ #art #memes #minds #truth #news
