Happy new b'ak'tun.
It's been feeling for a while now that we're splitting off from each other, and that feeling has just kept getting more powerful for me. If you look at the media, you could certainly be convinced for yourself. The muppets in america are clearly being driven to each other's throats, caught as always in utter terror. Turns out parenting interferes with pawing away hours at your cell phone, now we have to ban all the things so that the adult world can become a child-friendly version of itself to accommodate the worst examples of ourselves; pretending that the utterly exceptional is the norm. No doubt they're lobbying to get oprah and dr phil inserted as a suppository for every man, woman and child, because accepting their programming via the teevee has clearly done so much already. It doesn't satisfy much that I put in the words early.
A couple of years ago, I benefited from a borderline psychedelic experience thanks to some magic mushrooms that had mostly gone off by the time they reached me. I asked what was ahead for us, vis-a-vis the new b'ak'tun, and my subconscious answered in the form of the semi-vivid, symbolic vision that my mind appears to favour. It showed two spirals, or maybe two directions in the same one. The rotations on one keeps getting smaller, while the ones in the other direction keep growing outwards. It showed me that most of us were in the shrinking one, but that by now, most of us would have migrated out of there. The implication was that chasing the shrinking spiral was a result of acting in fear, and the further implication was that the shrinking would eventually mean for everyone on that path a kind of spiritual death, if not a physical one. I realised what that meant for me personally, and found it difficult to believe that I would in the interim give up my (fear-induced) habit of tracking and saving important world news, or trying to front-run the future via the reports of a "rickety time machine", but now that's already happened.
If you haven't noticed the spiral getting smaller, you haven't been paying proper attention. Most people have been pulling into themselves, trying to live in a fractal of things that were once tiny; getting all worked up and interested in things like coffee and food, then hiding there. Watch satellite teevee and you'll find prison and cop shows trying to convince you that big brother is everywhere and that not even a gram of weed could escape the "great eye". Switch the channel and you'll find people trying to convince you to spend hours a day preparing meals. Be only afraid of al CIA-da, the other channels beg: "Don't worry that the most terrified nation on earth murders their own citizens in false flag attacks for an excuse to secure other people's resources and your own: We got people whose job it is to worry about that, and they seem quite satisfied, sleeping on mattresses made of stolen oil money."
The propaganda is only going to get clearer and more self-defeating as time drags on. Satirists have been out of work for years now, their jobs taken away by people who thought they were being serious. A once (relatively) reputable south african news site spammed this into the headlines, like it wasn't an ad. I wonder what they think they will be left with once people spent all the energy they had left on getting worked up at summer, coffee, cat pictures, or the left-hind leg of big potato moths. Probably willing shells with which to make war on the rest of us.
I am not afraid.
It's been prepared over hundreds of years and the path has been cleared for it by those with the resources to own the media. The thing has been carted out for the grand unveiling, and now and then the wind lifts the corners on the cloth obscuring it so that those who had already guessed its shape can have their guesses validated. As expected, it is riding on the back of the occupy movement. Beta tests being run on the internet show it may well be called occupy world government.
Following will be a global media campaign like we've never seen. See the kony campaign for a taste of what manner of self-contradicting lies and astroturfing will be pushed to sell this thing. They called it an experiment, because that's what it was. See most bank adverts for the kind of sentimentality that can come from an organisation which does the exact opposite of what they say.
You can always recognise these people, because their goal is order and the justification they use is the lowest common denominator of humanity. First, it's important to recognise that there isn't actually anything like chaos. If you don't have access to or the guts for psychedelics, you can understand this concept in theory by what is generally understood of science: Every reaction has an equal and opposite action. Atoms (nor anything else) don't react at random, they react based on the laws of physics. So really, chaos is an abstraction for a person's inability to understand the world around them. The quest for order, then, is a symptom of someone who cannot cope with this inability, and indeed devotes their life to pissing up the wall after a belief that they can make the universe conform to the limitations of their comparatively tiny minds. This is why this quest for order and the quest for wealth tend to go together; they both originate from fear of the unknown.
It's for the women and the children, they say. Those women and children used to have husbands and fathers, but that model is all but destroyed now: Too much autonomy there. Then they will parade the utterly exceptional examples of disability. It's no accident that this is the same lie and irrational fear the TSA and its parent, the war on privacy, is based on: They pretend that the exceptionally exceptional is the norm. "Terrorists exist, so everyone who works must be treated as one." It's weakness porn for the politically correct. They want to appear to care, but only enough to appoint someone else whose job it is to care.
It doesn't matter whether this world government will indeed ensure that every kitten's ass is perpetually stuffed with a strawberry as they promise. It's another law of physics that those that feel they cannot acquire anything honestly are attracted to power. Even in the upside-down world most people live in by default, where steel-and-concrete buildings collapse at free-fall speed into their own footprint because of fire, and coordinated global media campaigns are not launched by those that own the media; it will not be long before the political and banker types infiltrate this single lever of power established in sentimentality over the entire planet. Who will the duped go to to solve the corruption in world government? By their current logic, they will happily be herded into galactic government. "One galaxy, one government." Order through homogeneity. Problem still unsolved, except now it's illegal to say so.
Up until now it's been religion that said the answers lie outside the self. That model will be finally pushed aside for "new and improved", where it will be world government that people run to for everything, allowing their mind, body and spirit to further weaken in disuse, until it is too late for them to do anything to free themselves of this product. It is already too late for many, who would do anything as long as the order came from a figure of authority. They will meet the bottom of this cliff in a dream, already having lost the ability to say "I".

There will always be those that would challenge you for being different, because we are shifting. If we weren't moving (physically, mentally, spiritually...) we would not be alive. Life fractally affects diversification to ensure continuation and invention, which also means at least some number would always be moving in opposite directions. We seem to be shifting pretty fast now, which returns even more friction than the usual bounce of things.
We shouldn't let stand what we feel is wrong, but we have in our clearly incomplete process of collectively maturing, been stuck with the idea of trying to prevent anything bad from ever happening again. That is where you start to get all these non-functioning pyramidal control structures, that have turned bloated with corruption, as they have centralised and accumulated the unwanted type of creatures that are attracted to power because they feel they cannot attain anything honestly. In a seemingly desperate but failing attempt to stay relevant in an increasingly informed world, what they sell now includes a thousand different causes to get all rah rah about from the comfort of your own home. If women have a problem with the system, blame the men. If you're black, blame the whites, or the illegal immigrants, Chinese or Arabs if you're white. Never the detached top of the pyramid with the eye everyone is afraid to look into, which itself has a request, begging "blame the sheeple". Never yourself for falling for it.
