The World is In Your Head, by Philip Jones

Was "bad" communitarianism just something I imagined, all in my head?
"The notion is that Quantum Mechanics dictates that `consciousness` is necessary to create reality, and the conclusion is we create our own reality with our thoughts. The opportunity for mass manipulation now becomes obvious; We are told that in order to lead a happy and successful life, all complaint must be extirpated, and any negativity is to be frowned upon and complainers ostracized, or better yet, re-educated into the new `thinking`. A uniform conformist `Happyland` of positive thinkers, who do as they're told without question, because `negative thoughts` bring negative experiences. This is Huxley's Brave New World and there's no hiding the fact." The World is In Your Head, by Philip Jones, April 2, 2009
This is a really good article published at, forwarded today from John Cameron in Australia. Jones shows, as have Bobby and Sean, that the Luciferian New Age ideology does not exist separately from the other aspects of the emerging global synthesis. By debunking their "think positive" mantra Jones exposes the flaw in their entire premise. He helps me understand why I made so many bad jokes back when I first started writing for the ACL. I did it mainly in response to people accusing me of being "too negative." My "happy" family and friends didn't want to hear anything bad, believing, as, according to Philip, do the Danes, that talking about bad things makes bad things happen.

I was actually accused by individual tenants at the Dawson raid that it was MY "negative" research and relentless questioning that CAUSED the SWAT raid for "suspicion of harboring bugs and rats." I made agreements with several people I care about over the past decade to NEVER talk about ACL work in their presence. They can complain to me me about all the new communitarian regulations and how screwed up they think things are, but I am not allowed to identify this process of change as communitarian. I've literally been forced to pretend I don't know why the new laws are being passed. Yet all these people are free to tell me what they hear on TV or the radio. My newest "negative" respeonse to anything heard on TV is:"It's all a lie." It infuriates some people and has been the most successful way of keeping them out of my space.

For example, I've recently reestablished communications with my mother. Some members of my family have been very unhappy with the choices I've made in my life, and my poverty level has made me a subject of ridicule and anger. Poor people have debts and don't take vacations. Slander used to hurt my feelings, back when I was 13 it really bothered me to be called a "tin grin" or "slut" or "whore" or "stupid" or "bookworm" etc. etc. After a lifetime of negative abuse from positive thinkers, I can honestly say, "What you think about me is none of my business."

My mother mentioned in her first letter that she thinks of me whenever she reads the word communitarian used with Obama. I was like, what???? and asked her to tell me more. I had no idea the word had reached mainstream newspapers. I also never assumed that when people began to recognise it as a REAL political ideology that they would assure me it's a good thing. But I should have expected this all along. Now I'm not "crazy" anymore for saying communitarianism is real. It's reaching the mainstream that Obama IS A COMMUNITARIAN, and well, now I'm just wrong in my anti communitarian stand. My research and my conclusions are all wrong (even though they've never been read or disputed). My decade long committment to the ACL that caused such harsh living conditions, that was just some weird thing I did. I camped two winters in interior Alaska because I like to be cold. Come on. All I need to do is "give him a chance. " And when (not if) Obama fails it will be my fault, because me and the people like me, we're spoilers, ruining his chances for success with our unevolved thoughts.

My mother thinks it's time I quit being so negative and move back to Happyland. It's what I planned to do anyway with my gertees and my minis. I'm preparing to become a marketing "wizard" and yes, all I can ever talk about is happy, fun things, beautiful fabrics and parties. I am going to sell brides a gorgeous tent for their wedding and tell dad (on the side) that in harder times to come it may prove to be an essential item in their daughter's Hope Chest. And I'll design a flatscreen TV room GerTee too... whatever the mesmerized market demands. ;)
"I can't remember specifics but several columnists here in Vegas mention communitarian views. Yes...things seem to be falling apart in America but I have hope and faith that things will right themselves out over the next few years. Obama is good for our country. Give him a chance's only been 65 days (or so) and he's fighting with long established self-centered men in congress. Things don't change overnight but change they will and mostly for the good of the country. ..... I love watching Brian Williams (ex Tom Brokow fan) as he tries to explain this mess. He does a pretty good job of it too. Do you have TV? We bought a new flat-screened TV with my last check from Wally World."
My sincerest thanks go out to Frank Z. for his generous contribution, and to James A. for his ongoing generous contributions and for sharing the ACL with his buddy Frank. I spent all my ebay proceeds on fabrics and forgot to set aside money for bread and coffee, so this comes at a very good time. I can live on $100 for a couple weeks! Been so inspired to redecorate that I ended up cleaning as I went, and it's looking like home sweet home in here now. Two businesses have said they are willing to rent me a space in midtown Anchorage, and both of them are on the same main street with 75, 000 cars a day passing by. I have to completely clean it but I have access to a 24' travel trailer I can set up in an RV park with water and sewer. If all goes well I'll strip out the plumbing, use the trailer for hauling, and put a gertee up with full water and sewer!

I just got 120, 6'8" rebar poles for the new walls and a place to cut 40 spruce for the ceiling beams! Green ones are easily stripped of bark in the spring and sanded into a golden finish. Burnt spuce, when sanded, looks like a deep purple sky with Northern Lights. It's very hard wood. The last thing now is I want a six foot fancy roof ring. But how funny is that? The "bridal" model will be bear proof and guaranteed wind resistant now too! I got a comment on my GerTee Instructable that in Russia they make them of steel. Great idea. Won't be able to staple the walls fabrics up, but I'll think of something easy. The ceiling may be too beautiful to hide... we'll see.

It's all in your head. You know...that's what New Age pretend Christian Robert Schuler tells his groupies. They just have to think POSITIVE and they can make their lives A BEEOOOTEEFOOL THING. And years ago, when my spouse's mother had gone CHARISMATIC she was taught, and believed, that POSITIVE CONFESSION is the ticket. One must never think negative thoughts, only positive thoughts. Because you bring about what you think about. Now isn't that amazing? The CHARISMATICS were/are really NEW THOUGHT/NEW AGERS.

This is my second introduction to Philip Jones. He was the one who used your research but failed to give you credit in his article "The EU Communitarian Agenda and The New Feudalists". His collection of articles is amazingly on target. In this latest one his quote of the Luciferian Principle at the outset, and his conclusion makes it clear that the fault lies with the people.

We cannot blame the Illuminati or even Lucifer himself. They are powerless without their ignorant accomplices. The ignorance results from deception and it blinds them to the Truth of God and knowledge of Him. They leave themselves no choice but to find "God" inside themselves. Those who seize power act with god like authority, and the powerless conclude that they must comply because they do not recognize a higher authority.

I've recently come across your work and have only tipped the service of it.

You are doing well.

Is it possible to say "stay encouraged" without being to positivist?

Hi Niki,
It never ceases to amaze me how so many pseudo-intellectuals repeat things they heard on TV (usually lines which remind me of "Atlas Shrugged") while trying to pass it off as their own, enlightened thinking.
You, Niki, are a true intellectual, and I know enough from my own experiences to recognize your commentary as unadulterated truth. So please, keep doing what you do!

I'm unfamiliar with the charismatics, I think the rudest part of the plan is the people who purposefully set out to trick Christians, Muslims, Jews and Indians into adopting New Age crap. A long time ago Diane Kramer's parents tried to explain to me the difference between their Judaism and the Hassidics and mystical rabbis. They were not fooled by it then, but I often wonder how they see it now. It is extremely difficult to be the only one in a group who disagrees with the adoption of new rituals.

Bobby I haven't read the Summa yet, I'm barely keeping up with you these days! Jones corrected the article on a few sites after we had a back-and-forth, we became freinds and I decided I really like the guy as a writer and a man. He's an ex London cop so he was still learning how to not plagiarize other writers... heh. This article compliments your work very nicely I thought.

And yes, "stay encouraged" is a great thing to hear, and you'd be amazed at how just one person saying it to me actually makes me encouraged. That must be that little bit of truth inside every one of their lies, because it does work, to an extent. So thank you!

And to you too Tracy, whose kind words have more than once soothed my angst over my uppity lower class assumptions. :) I don't see myself as an "intellectual" or an "artist"... but somehow I am a bit of both. I think when I am actualy in either mode it has zero to do with feeding my ego and everything to do with feeding my soul.

I count each of you as a blessing.

Who owns reality?

Hehe... had to respond.

Niki, Yes, I agree. A good article from Philip, as usual. Although, he's a little late to enter the fray. I concur with the main theme of the article; as well with your response, but, as someone who has followed the quantum world and parapsychology with more than just a surface interest, I have to state that our dear Philip has fallen into the same trap of misunderstanding as those expecting to be treated with a neat, glossy, shrink-wrapped manual of the Grand Arcanum - that will deliver them into the proverbial 'lightbulb' moment of satori understanding. In under two hours no less!

While I find myself instinctively wary of any 35,000 year old warrior spirit channelled through the agency of a bored suburban housewife, or any proponent offering 'oprahiates for the masses', and while I'm under no allusion that Tavistock are the prime shakers and movers in Social Fen Shui and have exported their Tavistock trained Social Scientists far and wide, it would be a great error to attempt to explain all this in terms of merely conspiracy.

If Philip was as diligent with his research on this subject has he has been on socio-political issues, he would have gone beyond the cursory google search trick: "The Secret+Sceptic", "Mr. Emoto+Sceptic", etc., and would have indeed found that Mr. Emoto's water experiments have been verified in double-blind experiments, not only notably by Dean Radin at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, but also others in many different countries - not to mention reference of Benveniste's earlier work on water memory and the research of Georgio Piccardi, Director of the Institute for Physical Chemistry in Florence.

The difficulty for all of us in accepting reports like this, despite their pedigree (or lack of it), is that they raise questions of such fundamental importance as to be frankly frightening in their implications. If it is possible to cause physical phenomena to occur simply by thinking about them or is in some way willing them, isn't the entire structure of science invalidated? Would it not inevitably mean that we do not understand the first thing about the nature of the world in which we live?

And yet, at the same time, few people would disagree that if the phenomena described are indeed real, then we are dealing with one of the most important scientific discoveries ever made. You might expect the world's scientists to be impatient to put such claims to the test experimently and to find out empirically whether paranormal phenomena actually occur. Yet the number of institutional scientists accepting this challenge can be counted on the fingers of one hand and the publicly-funded experimental resources at their disposal can be counted on the fingers of the other.

RE: Maharishi Effect' As Prof. David Edwards has stated "I think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program."

Please do more research, Phillip. It didn't end there.

Despite the potential importance of reports of psychokinesis and related paranormal phenomena, institutional science devotes virtually no resources to their research. In the main this is because there is a widespread (not entirely unhealthy) scepticism which is summed up in the idea 'if there were anything in it, we would have stumbled across major replicable phenomena years ago.' If there were money to be made from the paranormal then it is in our supermarket shelves already stacked high with telepathic toothpaste and psychic cornflakes and 'The Secret' DVDs.

The same healthy scepticism makes science feel confident that they are few - if any - big surprises left in the field, say like for instance inorganic chemistry, where the chemical behaviour of the elements has minutely studied and is believed to be understood to a very high degree. It seems simply not worth spending large sums on big projects to discover if sodium chloride has any more rewarding property than flavouring our fish and chips.

But although this scepticism acts as a valuable restraint on wasted effort and sloppy thinking, it can be - and sometimes has been - badly misplaced in the past and is an unreliable guide to our expectations of future scientific discovery, especially in those areas where our self-confidence is high but our knowledge is actually rather thin.

Fundamental discoveries also remain to be made in a field as basic as electromagnetism itself. In 1975, sixth-form schoolgirl in England wondered in her science class what would happen if she wound an electrical coil with more turns in the centre than at the ends. The result was the chance discovery of the constant-pull solenoid - basic electro-mechnical device that had somehow eluded scientists and engineers from Faraday, Marconi, Tesla et al, onwards but which today is a staple invention incorporated into literally thousands of domestic and industrial devices (and earning very substantial commercial rewards for the young woman in question).

Examples such as these show that there are scientific discoveries of major importance still be be made, They are not hidden deep in the atomic nucleus or in the remote galactic centre: they are here in our everyday lives. They are nor so cunningly concealed that they require billion-dollar particle accelerators or teams of lab coated quantum wonks to unravel them, They happen every day in plain view and they can be grasped by a sixth-form schoolgirl or a single scientist with an enquiring mind.

In 1989 Dean Radin, then of Princeton's Psychology Department and Roger Nelson of the PEAR lab published a paper on the meta-analysis of micro-PK experiments not, as might be expected, in a parapsychology journal but in the respected physics journal Foundations of Physics. Their paper was entitled 'Consciousness-related effects in random physical systems'. In their analysis, Radin and Nelson tracked down 152 reports describing 597 experimental studies and 235 control studies by 68 different investigators involving the influence of consciousness on microelectronic systems.

Radin and Nelson's article was a bombshell for critics who had for years poured scorned on the statistics of parapsychology. They showed that the meta-analysis of all these trials dramatically provided inconstestable evidence for micro-PK. For they found that the odds that the overall result arose due to chance was 1 in 10(35). This is as close as anyone in the scientific world ever has come to a 'racing certainty'.

Radin and Nelson also calculted the size of the 'file drawer' of unsuccessful and unpublished micro-PK studies that would have to exist to reduce their result to chance expectation. They found the drawer would have to contain 54,000 such studies.

Summarising their achievement, Dr Richard Broughton says:

Radin and Nelson's meta-analysis demonstrates that the micro-PK results are robust and repeatable. Unless critics want to allege wholesale collusion among more than sixty experimenters or suggest a methodological artifact common to nearly six hundred experiments conducted over three decades, there is no escaping the conclusion that micro-PK effects are indeed possible. Yet Radin and Nelson, in common with most parapsychologists, stop short of claiming that all is proven. All they ask is that physicists (and psychologists) start taking these data seriously.

Even with evidence for psychokinesis of this kind, physicists and psychologists are understandably still relucant to start taking the data seriously. For the fundamental question still remains: if Rudi Schneider, Uri Geller and Neo from the Matrix - perhaps even most people - really can bend spoons, read minds, directly influence their environment and all the rest, how on earth do they do it? Is there even the slightest evidence for a source of biological energy that could possibly accomplish such astounding feats? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer is that there is a mountain of such evidence. And like those examined, it is firmly buried in the files labelled 'taboo subjects - not to be researched seriously' or to be subjected to a quick 'it doesn't google well, therefore it doesn't exist'. It seems Phillip's love of knowledge doesn't extend this far down the rabbit-hole.

Thirty-five years ago, Professor Hans Eysenck of London University's Institute of Psychiatry wrote:

Unless there is a gigantic conspiracy involving some thirty University departments all over the world, and several hundred highly respected scientists in various fields, man of them originally sceptical to the claims of the psychical researchers, the only conclusion that the unbiased observer can come to is that there does exist a small number of people who obtain knowledge existing in other people's minds, or in the outer world, by means as yet unknown to science.

Writing again on the subject of the paranormal in 1982 and referring to his original statement, Eysenck observed that: 'the only revision necessary now would be that the number of people involved is larger than it was then!'

One very obvious conclusion to be drawn from such a fundamental discovery is that there is a strong likelihood that all living organisms - whose bodies consist of chemical reactions taking place in water - are in some currently unknown ways capable of being affected by electromagnetism and consciousness. Until Picardi's results were published - and, sadly, still today - most physicists and chemists would simply reject and such ideas as superstitious nonsense. Russian research in this field is still miles ahead of anywhere else, and sadly, the vast majority of it is not available in the public domain. I would advise anyone seriously interested in this area of research to read PSI: Psychic Discoveries behind the Iron Curtain by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder for an introductory paddle in this pool. Let it most clearly understood that this book has nothing whatsoever to do with any "psychic" anything. The employment of this word in the title should, rather, be read to mean "Matters that we have been taught to call Psychic."

Unconstrained, conspiracism leads to doubts about everything, bringing life itself under suspicion. The structure of belief, as well as the lack of logical constraints, make it easy to follow the path from one phobia to another. In this spirit, Jonathan Vankin writes that "civilisation is a conspiracy against reality." Oliver Stone, one of Hollywood's most renowned movie producers, asks the conspiracy researcher's ultimate questions: Who owns reality? Who owns your mind?" His answers allow little room for debate: "I've come to have severe doubts about Columbus, about Washington, about the Civil War being fought over slavery, about World War I, about World War II and the supposed fight against Nazism and Japanese control of resources ... I don't even know if I was born or who my parents were." Thus does autodidactic enquiry twist itself into absolute nihilism.

In whatever state-of-being we find ourselves in at any given moment, We have to look with better eyes that this.
