I know that the penultimate waking experience for me was Loose Change’s 9/11 documentary, which I stumbled upon in 2007 through the website Reddit. But looking back I was exposed to numerous materials that ‘could’ have woken me up. I read ‘1984’ and ‘Brave New World’ in High School. I saw the movie ‘Brazil’ when it came out. I watched ‘They Live’ in college and thought it was bad. I watched ‘The Matrix’ when it hit the DVD shelf, and loved it. Around 2000 I distinctly remember having the realization that Goldman Sachs was a criminal organization, that all they did to ‘create value’ was steal from others. I am certain at some point in the early 00’s I was convinced that Kennedy was killed by elements within the Government. In 2006 I stumbled upon what must have been Peter Schiff’s proclamation of the coming housing crisis using facts and historic data, in particular the Case-Schiller report. Of course the MSM was laughing at this. I am sure there are many many more materials that I was exposed to before 2007 that could have woken me up… but I did not. I wonder why?
From 2007 until today I have gone through a series of further awakenings. Many of them traumatic, to the point that spiritually I curled up in the fetal position and wept, and in hindsight it probably would have been therapeutic to have done it physically as well. It hurt, it was disturbing, it was terrifying… there is a very dark world out there. Now I will admit I was naive, in large part because my parents were, and also because I grew up never lacking for anything. I’m sure a person who hunger was a regular reality, or were abused, as a child had a much easier time waking up to the ‘reality’ of the world we live in. But for someone who grew up in a protective bubble, it’s been difficult. As for the trauma of it, I’m empathic which means I’m emotionally and spiritually sensitive, so I can only assume this means it cuts me deeper when discovering ‘another’ ugly truth.
Today I am positive that one primary reason I awoken is that I am insatiably curious. I need to learn, I need to know how things work, I want to know why, I want to know the facts, often called the ‘Truth’. This goes back to my childhood, I tore apart my toys to see how they worked, unfortunately most toys are not designed to be taken apart and put back together. I got in trouble for this as a child, but my curiosity was so strong that I continued to do it anyway knowing full well the consequences. If my curiosity had been squashed, which btw is one of the primary purposes of Public Education, I doubt I would be writing this today.
But why did it take me until I was 39 to start to wake up, and in particular why if I was so curious? There are several factors why humans either do not see or choose not to acknowledge the truth.
Conditioning/Programming – as previously stated I was exposed to much media revealing the truth of the world we live in but yet did not ‘see’ it. I attribute this directly to the conditioning or programming that I and anyone else, in a first world country who went to a organized school or regularly viewed/listened to mass media, was exposed to. For certainly one primary purpose of school and mass media is to ensure that we ‘don’t’ see the reality of the world we live in. We have been trained to not question what we are told by authorities or experts. We have been trained to react to key words. And this reaction is usually emotional and derails or circumvents thinking, and in particular critical thinking. Words like; terror, patriot, Muslim, politician, lone wolf, vaccination, conspiracy theory, 9/11, Al Qaeda, ISIL, suicide. We’ve been trained not to think, or more accurately not to think critically, logically. We’ve been trained to ‘believe’ the professional/teacher/scientist/doctor. The ‘experts’ would not lie to you… would they? We’ve been trained to consume, not think… after all aren’t we all just consumers? They create the ‘problem’, manipulate our ‘reaction’, and provide the ‘solution’. The reality is that you and every one you know has been subjected to a constant stream of propaganda from the moment they could comprehend what was being communicated. We’ve been lulled into a semi-conscious state. Are eyes are open but we only see through a glass dimly. We hear but do not fully comprehend. We think but at a fraction of our capability. We cannot ‘see’ because a tremendous amount of effort has been expended to keep us blind.
Crowd Behavior – the individual wants to be part of the herd, this is instinctive, it is for safety. So if the crowd is deceived and an individual learns the truth. Then the individual risks rejection of the crowd by believing something different. This is a very strong motivator for many. Because of this in particular we have a portion of the crowd who ‘believe’ something different from the crowd but do not talk about it or admit it.
Arrogance – one interesting behavior I’ve seen many times is the attitude or belief from some that because of their education level, or because of their ‘intelligence’, that they are too smart to be deceived. Which actually means they are deeply deceived. There is no such thing as being too smart to be deceived.
Reluctance to Change – for many this is the ultimate block. Many times learning the truth requires a serious life change. Well maybe the better way to state that is one is forced to contemplate a life change. And for many this is too difficult. They like their routine. The are comfortable in their maladjusted worldview. So for some that may actually comprehend the difference between the official narrative and the truth, and recognize the truth for what it is, but will continue to live the official narrative because they do not want to change.
Emotional Trauma – certainly another reason that people reject the truth is emotion based. In particular if one’s whole life revolves around a false narrative, it can be devastating to admit that in many ways their whole life is a lie. Anger, shame, frustration, embarrassment, uncertainty, fear. All very real and normal reactions to learning the truth. And very real reasons to reject the truth. Actually this one in particular reminds myself that we need to be careful when revealing the truth. For it truly can be a genuine traumatic experience for many. Real actual trauma.
I recently watched a short video clip of 2-3 people watching/filming 9/11 as it happened, the clips starts with one tower smoking, the group discussing what happened. Then people start jumping from the tower, and they are questioning if that is what they are seeing (the group was far away from the tower), one says ‘maybe it’s furniture or something else’. Then the second tower is hit. And the group freaks out, panics, and leaves. I’m assuming intending on leaving Manhattan. The fear was palpable in that video. The trauma was real. I felt it reacting to their reactions. I’m not sure that the trauma of the event itself is that much different from when one learns for the first time that the official 9/11 narrative is impossible and the only way for it to have occurred is for persons within the US Govt to assist in it’s execution. Waking up to the truth is traumatic for most.
Fear – possibly the most powerful motivator of humans. A tool used regularly by the MSM to manipulate the masses. In fact fear is a cornerstone of our programming/conditioning. So it should be no surprise that they use fear to deceive and then use fear to block people from the truth. And of all the emotional traumas fear is the one that stops the most from admitting the truth. Something to keep in mind when helping to awaken others.
After writing this I must conclude that my major block was just how deeply deceived I was, the programming and conditioning cloaked my senses. I so fully accepted the official narrative that I could not consider an alternative. Possibly the reality of my son’s condition (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy) destroyed the bubble of illusion I was in. This coupled with my unquenched curiosity finally removed the scale from my eyes. But it has been a long process, 8 years running.
We are under many layers of deception. Never assume you are fully awake. Never stop seeking the truth.
Francis Shure, M.A. L.P.C. psychologist and one who rejects the official story of 9/11 has an outstanding series of articles titled; ‘Why Do Good People Become Silent—or Worse—About 9/11?’ found at Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth). Highly recommended to anyone seeking further as to why people deny the truth.

Note: This article feels a bit disjointed to me, having a hard time focusing/completing thoughts again. But felt it was necessary to post it regardless. Also my apologies for not linking the 9/11 video. I cannot locate it. It is short, 3.5 minutes or so. A young girl is filming from inside a high rise building. I believe there are also two other people with her, another girl and a male. It ends with them getting on an elevator. If I find it I will link it.
