Thanks to everyone who
responded to my comments regarding BRAIN and our
presidential election this year.
Everybody who is a regular at this site knows that
politics and political claims figure way way down on my
list of IMPORTANT BRAIN THINGS.
Never the less, once in a while the topic comes up, so I
comment on it, and so do some of you.
It always makes for a good housecleaning around here- the
"fake" brain explorers always manage to get all excited
that I may have insulted some political hero or another--
and miss the point completely.
The regular Brain People, they get it.
Below are a few of the letters I got back after my Your
Great Brain Adventure post-- (you can look at the
original post here:
and a follow up here:
political level, I think what is needed in this country
is a BRAIN ARMY OF TRUTH SPEAKERS who will go into all
population areas of the US, armed with simple and plain
facts about what the federal government is ACTUALLY doing
with all of its tax dollars, and all of its
will offset the corporate owned TV and news media which
is selective about what issues it emphasizes and allows
on its screen and pages without real counterpoint from
intelligent individuals and groups who do not possess the
almighty advertising dollar, as do corporations and big
business bought "public servants".
we have these days is CONSCIOUSNESS of vast populations
controlled by MASS MEDIA, owned by big business. This is
neither truth, reality, or news.
the news and issues THEY want you to focus on. And it's
keeping people dumb and un-informed.
for an ALTERNATIVE mind expanding view of our elections -
albeit NOT specifically brain related- perhaps consider a
couple of other viewpoints:

Don't know if you read all your mail but this one struck
a cord with me.
I have come to the conclusion that too many people choose
not to act with
moral courage and the fact that the party system has got
to go. There
were more than two seemingly eligible candidates for
president but were
not allowed the press. The paradigm must shift for people
to get a grip
on what is really happening here.
Many blessings to you and all that you know.

Just opened your e-mail about the elections, and all I
can say is,"How
true, and how sad."
We are supposed to be living in the
most intelligent, technologically advanced, and
richest(?) nation in the world, yet we allow travesties
like these to occur on a daily basis,
usually due to our own LAZINESS!!
But you do have a point, we don't have to allow this to
happen. I wish
more people would take your advice,
and try to "click forward." I have not been 100%
successful at this, but my life has become significantly
better, since I started to try.
I especially like the
part of your e-mail that said something to the effect of,
"If you don't like my political views,

why, go back to your CAVE."

Thank you for your reply.
Indeed there are several countries that serve their
population well, yet we
have inherited a welfare society, that is increasingly
impossible to manage.
Seems there is an endless parade of victoms, which expect
to meet their every need, from education to housing to
medical to providing
for their daily bread. America has indeed become to a
host of people the
land of the freebee and the home of the depraved. The
religions have become
government entities licensed to subdue the populace with
fear, and a promised pie in the sky. Families have
rendered the raising of
their young to the state as wards of the government. This
nation only in the
last few years seems to be recognizing the error of
administered by the state, and that personal
responsibilty for individual
welfare is slowly becoming accepted.
The one overwhelming distinction in the current white
administration, is the theme of local control and
Ergo, even though we have not arrived at the ideal
government, the direction
we have assumed holds the possibilities of progress for
everyone who is
willing to step up and participate in holding forth
ligitimate values which
are condusive to prosperity, and moralities that engender
influences for our posterity.

It sprang to mind a series I have been watching on BBC2
called "The Power of Nightmares". This set of 3
programmes is an absolute
revelation in understanding why we`re all so scared. The
series begins by
showing us how politicians used hope and positive dream
fantacies back in
the mid part of the century, only for people to become
them and dis-trust politicians. In order to replace this
method of control
they now use the power of fear to maintain their grip and
terrorist fantacies that really don`t exist!
There were no terrorists hiding in Afghanistan and there
were no sleeper
cells lying dormant in any of the western countries
waiting to strike. There
was no link to Saddam Hussein either. I would seriously
suggest to anyone
that they try and obtain a copy of these programmes to
see what`s really
going on out there. As Bill Clinton, an old hand at
creating images said
just before the election,
"If one candidate's trying to scare you, and the other
one's trying to get
you to think; if one candidate's appealing to your fears,
and the other
one's appealing to your hopes; you better vote for the
person who wants you
to think and hope."
I am with you.
I started listening to the Bush speech this morning. He
I will lead America forward...
No that's not too original or too astounding. What amazed
me was that that
piece of inane drivel met with wild applause.
I mean, 'forward' is implicit in the meaning of the word
'lead'... Would he
dream of saying, "I'm hoping to lead you all backwards"?
what is it with
that mindless cheering.
I am still optimistic. I think that the fear-filled ego
driven people have
voted Johnny and the Shrub into their respective offices
to do what George
and John said they'd do... and neither will deliver. So
in four years time,
even morons will want a change. Of course by then, many
will have lost their livelihoods and even their lives,
and the planet will
be under total siege. But we must remain
Kind wishes to you
As I prepare to retire after this disappointing day, I am
so grateful to have read your message concerning the
outcome of the elections. I have been asking myself all
day how I can keep from slipping backwards to reptilian
thinking about it all. Your message was just what I
needed to think forward and not lose confidence in my
choices and the reasons I made them. I will sleep better
tonight. I will spread the forward thinking philosophy.
Thank you so much!

But before you get too far out on that limb that the
majority of voters are "dormant" I'd like to just point
out that from my feebile research, it seems that most

the results were rigged. How in the hell will we ever

Thanks. I appreciate your work.
Hmm. That was my original impression: but then again
apparently some voters
struck the same problem when voting for Bush... I dunno.
I prefer Renee des
Cartes' idea: doubt everything :-)
It worked for him!
You sort of alluded to it but didn't come right out and
say it - so I don't
know if you know of the huge quantity of what used to be
persuasion, that is in constant use in all media for the
past 40 -50 years.
Of course people don't hear, see, or react in any way to
numbers, history, etc. when they are all deep in the
reptile brain taken
there on the Midnight Special -- Fear Train. Fear about
those events created
by the Fearmongers in the first place!!
You correctly see that the solution is to first educate
people about these
things and second to have them wake up Spiritually and
begin to learn about
Inner Life and about Higher Staes of Consciousness until
they realize they
ALL can be at the Source of Creating their own
Incidentally, my personal guesstimate is that about one
third of the voters
actually voted for Bush and that the rest was all voter
fraud, as has become
the norm in this country.

We're never going to know for sure
if there were weapons, plans for weapons or anything
else. I don't care. That's one part of my environment
that I have no control over. As for voting, how does one
choose between one guy who is going to suck up to the
terrorists because he thinks they won't hurt us anymore
and another guy who is perfectly capable of blowing up
whole cities to get one sicko terrorist. I'm glad the

I am so depressed at the results of
the last election. I cannot believe we have so many
misinformed citizens !!! Cannot anyone see that this
democracy is actually turning into a fascist government
? Cannot we see that we are constantly shown propaganda
by the monopoly that now owns the all our media. What
happened to fair and balanced reporting. Or, someone
taking the initiative to research something that is
wrong in our society?
History has it that the German government
used all the same ploys including invoking
God's name in all their messages. They were brainwashed
too. Are we repeating this scenario while we kill our
economy, decrease the standards for schools to keep the
general public at an idiot level, allowing once
protected government lands to be drilled for oil and

else - today I experienced what I

blurry and my head was hurting. I was very
distraught over my eye situation and getting a little
panicky thinking I was going blind. I laid down
and closed my eyes and the eye thing was weird even
with it closed and I became even more distraught.
Suddenly it occurred to me to click forward and I
did. This particular click forward was powerful
and pronounced, no doubt about it, my panic quickly
subsided and I feel asleep for a short time and woke up
without the eye problem. Clicking forward is very
good in panic situations.
