Fool me once, fool me again, fool me once more, and fool yourself you are fooling me.
Unless we halt the process of degeneration and the moral and spiritual decline the madness, chaos and destruction is going to get much worse...at an accelerating rate. We need to work on regenerating ourselves and the earth, focusing on the totality of our environment and experience...so that we may harvest the full epigenetic expression of our DNA and whole-brain capacity. We barely have the strength to tolerate reality as we are, let alone do anything about moving beyond Collapse to start establishing Civilization Next.
Understanding the causes and mechanisms of our fallen human nature is the first step to throwing off the veil of dysfunction, disease and decay. When we see the big picture of cultural developmental disability we no longer take our own dysfunction and reactivity personally…then the false front of denial and defense preventing redemption and illumination can lift. Thus a global-wide rewriting of history and our collective and personal script is needed to reboot Homo sapiens…so that we may become aware that we “know” and “don’t know.” Just when and how did we start betraying our very existence?
In studying the combination of arrogance and ignorance of the Borg we may observe that the bravado and bluff arises from naivety where…"we don't know that we do not know." The power-over stance of those dissociated from their sovereignty is not empowerment, and so their self-esteem is none other than self-centric narcissism. This front of having to "be on top" has to fall before true self-knowledge and self-love can be born.
Contrition or contriteness (from the Latin "contritus," means ground to pieces, that is crushed by guilt) is sincere and complete remorse for sins one has committed. The bully has to give up bullying and feel remorse before he can become truly HUman.
However, along with the psychopath those incapable of remorse are unlikely to grow beyond the Hindbrain. Notice how arrogance, ignorance, bravado and bluff represent an insurmountable barrier against arriving at remorse, rectification, reformation and improvement. The combination of power-over, arrogance and ignorance…the dominant constituent or universal character of the Borg, prevents the evolution to the true HUman that we actually are. The potential “higher” has been hijacked by a perpetual systemic feedback loop of retrogressive dysfunction.
"Judas" (spelled "Ioudas" in ancient Greek and "Iudas" in Latin, pronounced yudas in both) is the Greek form of the common name Judah (יהודה, Yehûdâh, Hebrew for "God is praised"). Justice, judicial: from iudicium for "judgment, decision, opinion, trial, wish, desire.”
Some of us know that Judas (he who turns away from the Light) and Icarus (he who flies too close to the sun) are one and the same archetypal metaphor for the underlying spiritual pathology of Homo degenerous. Judas the back stabber is a naïve fool, because he sides with the dominant power to inflict harm on the ultimate good. Such an allegiance with the bad and denial of the good is in itself a sure sign of a lack of mature prefrontal lobe development. We have in the current collapse era fidelity to the liege lord of money, which equates to a material form of FREEDOM…thus Judas is a feudal vassal compulsively carrying out the dictates of the profit margin, at the expense of the genuine freedom of personal will that comes from allegiance to the ultimate good. Each moment we bow to a lesser god, we sell our sovereign soul short.
“Everyone has his formula for happiness, but whatever it is that you value, you can buy it with lots of money. And even if you can't (which isn't often), you can buy other great stuff that will take your mind off what you can't have. So, money is our ultimate goal." Who Stole My Cheese, Ilene Hochberg
In denying universal good and being a do-badder, Judas could not help himself, as he was compelled by the power-hungry collective mind to betray the evolutionary Christ. Miscreant Cabals or collectives of evil-doers get away with escalating irrational injustice, that snow balls as they justify, reinforce and legislate their own version of reality for profit. Using the methods of the power-hungry collective mind, power-abuse for profit and sins against life can be arranged for a price, regardless of moral right, commonsense and human decency.
Power cannibalism usually involves the basic needs associated with status, dominance, ownership, territory, possession, resources, affiliation, sex appeal, security, affirmation, validation and physical sustenance. The Judas syndrome is a version of power cannibalism where the Judas feels guilty and afraid of their moral deficiency, their inability to know right from wrong and are ashamed of their dark anti-empathic emotions. In order to compensate for this lack and to feel more ethical and in control the Judas acts to betray a victim through entrapment, accusation, slander, back stabbing and collaborative persecutory allegiance with others against the prey.
Judas is trying to feel more empowered and in control by stimulating the dopamine reward system via sensationalism, extortion, power cannibalism and warfare. Thus the Judas subconsciously projects their moral deficiency onto others in an effort to fight with their own inner demons in order to "grow." However, such Hindbrain tactics do not grow Prefrontal Lobe executive skills and moral certitude and so for all Judas's efforts he/she doesn't actually achieve the desired goal of feeling powerful, secure, righteous, good, worthy, accepted, admired or respected. This clearly shows that power-over merely perpetuates powerlessness and the crippled personality of the Master/Slave.
Thus Judas is in perpetual struggle for self-esteem as he takes his vengeance and power-hunger out on victim after victim...never finding peace or reconciliation with God (sanity, sanctity) and never feeling good about himself. Judas is a textbook psychotic. OCD neurotic habits of nagging, manipulating and controlling the people around us and not allowing them their own reality, energetic space and sovereign-will is part of the Judas complex. Judas is an archetype, but here I am looking at the phenomena of spiritual betrayal of self and other as being ubiquitous in general society. Not that we are actively running around stabbing "the good guy" in the back, but that the denial of the divinity of the individual is a given in a competitive society.
Divide and conquer is the cause of the collapse of social structures because it is opposite of communion, communication and community. Divide and conquer is the source code of the Borg, and the ultimate strategy for distracting the mind and desecrating the soul.
The Borg is a complex social system that negates and betrays sovereignty...in order to maintain retardation and arrested spiritual development. The Borg naively betrays sovereignty to keep the power-over control system in place, so there needs to be a constant reign of fear to stimulate the amygdala to hijack the brain. This is why contemporary humans are constantly seeking external fulfillment and outer affirmation, while sucking up to external authorities. Once we are on the sovereign path every act of violence against our being teaches us to more fully embody our Presence and actively create a world in which HUmans can thrive. If however we present ourselves as a “victim” to the power hungry Borg then we feed into the ongoing demise of humanity and the planet. Sovereignty demands the self-discipline and determination to avoid imbibing the poison of Hindbrain presovereign thought, word and deed.
The brute nature of mob rule, Hivemind or the Borg is due to the fact that it operates prior to the individuated and actualized or sovereign self. Thus Judas represents "arcane" man driven by Hindbrain dominance without guidance from the executive brain. This is why Judas betrays the Christ or the realized individual...and why the Judas Syndrome is a betrayal of the primacy of sovereignty and the sovereign rights of the individual. In betraying our higher HUman self we set ourselves up to being vulnerable to the collective Judas or Hivemind, because we have less executive skills to deal with the Borg. You see therefore that our personal evolution is vital to surviving the caustic, brute nature of the collective, which threatens to degrade our selfhood. We evolve and succeed to the degree that our sense of self-worth is greater than the limiting and intimidating collective hysteria of "mobocracy."
How we feel about ourselves is largely determined by the power constellation in our family of origin, and whether the family structure was based on inclusion, solidarity and equity, or conversely was based on exclusion, competition and inequity. The former family structure produces individuals with a strong sense of self-worth and confidence, and who have surplus energy for creativity because they are not working against themselves. The later family structure produces unintegrated individuals who feel they are never enough and who feel they live in a hostile world full of conflict. This is the defining difference between being a syntropic sovereign self, and an entropic presovereign self incapable of self-regulation and self-determinancy.
How we feel we measure up to others in height, morality or social standing determines how we feel about ourselves, and so in turn how we feel about others. Experiencing social situations from a low self-worth, low status position can lead to paranoid thoughts. Excessive mistrust of others builds directly upon our own negative feelings about ourselves. When we feel comparatively physically or emotionally smaller and weaker this heightens our levels of mistrust, paranoia and fear of others, conversely when we feel taller, more powerful and self-confident we are more trusting of others. Shyness is a common but often seriously limiting constellation of feelings and attitudes experienced in social situations. When we are down on ourselves we feel we are incompetent, dislikeable or inferior, and so we experience social reticence…that people are deliberately staring, thinking badly about them, or trying to cause us harm and distress.
Why does Judas betray “The Good?” Because he fears his own sovereign authority and the associated responsibility of personal choice, farsight and moral certainty. Judas thus betrays his own sense of justice and righteousness, and as a consequence he hangs himself…he turns himself upside down…hence he reverses Eros and desacralizes himself…makes himself into the mundane, domesticated, intellectually compromised and false man. That is, Judas betrays Christ Consciousness and the executive functions of self-control, self-discipline and self-mastery because he doesn’t want to grow up. Judas says “To hell with evolution, I am going to be a pawn for the status quo of power-abuse so that I can benefit from the bullying and extortion of the dominator cabal.”
Within the competitive social milieu we learn to betray ourselves by being taught self-hatred and betrayal. Making oneself into one's own slave is the greatest crime there is. In a divide and conquer sadomasochist society as we observe ourselves through the eyes of Other we are self-rejecting and self-shaming as a matter of course, unless we are in the Alpha position. Authoritarian social structures that use fear as the principle motivator cause the brain to develop in conflict with itself, and paradoxical will then undermines the ongoing development of the sovereign self through an ongoing barrage of self-censor, self-sabotage and self-diminishment.
In pyramidal power systems, bullying and cronyism is not only rife, it is mandatory to get to the top. There needs to be a study on institutions to see if the mechanisms of institutional collapse are due to the codification of degenerative Hindbrain processes. And thereby build our understanding of how to create meta-structures in society that support the whole HUman, rather than degrade it. Meta Structures are the organizational framework that holds the Matrix together...the traditions, language, customs, social codes, biases, laws, rules...that is all the preset givens to the design of the social habitas and the organs that comprise the body of civilization.
It is just a matter of time before everyone moves into the sovereignty circuits because the Borg is literally killing itself...and all life. The rate we are going it will take a thousand years to quit the violence towards self and other and come into universal harmony to achieve Civilization Next. Mystic cosmology and implosion technology arrived at through gnostic illumination must be forwarded by a spiritually evolved HUmanity, or we will always have what we have now, which is—the highest technology being secretly horded by malicious, psychopathic traitors for their own personal gain at the expense of the earth and the many.
The resanctification of civilization demands a radical revisioning of the role that consciousness plays in the perception of reality and its unfolding. The beneficence of a well-ordered social society ensures the spiritual development of the members of that society. It is obvious that mystic civilization can only be born through the sovereign emancipation of each individual. The developmental path towards sovereignty demands the self-discipline and determination to avoid imbibing the poison of Hindbrain presovereign thought, word and deed. With conscious evolution we might get there sooner. We each have to start where we are, to throw off the weight of the psychopathic status quo. Conscious civilization is the only way humans can endure the repercussions of their own existence. Thus sanity is ultimately unavoidable.
