Walking through the valley of Archetypical Reality

The distractions are relentless, simply one after another; the game is hypnotic and engaging. Since the beginning of 2011 cycle our minds have been busied with an assortment of distractions. Tsunamis, pirate kidnappings, the royal wedding, Osama bin laden, Lindsay Lohan, Libya, radiation poison, Charlie Sheen, cancer, death, illness. There is not much space in between to process thoughts which plunge below the surface of reality. This is much like going on a guided tour and the guide’s job is to keep the excitement moving as he wants to be sure that he delivers your money’s worth.

After a while the traveler is tired from the day’s events; as there is much to process, yet there are a great many unregistered occurrences not part of our conscious experience. In each moment our minds are bombarded by projections. The question should then be asked, what is it that wasn’t seen as the events of the day moved along in this successive sequence. This is the manner in which most experience life on a daily basis enclosed in a bubble of distractions.

What is not realized is that we are a well-ordered package of ideas (data) which steadily continues to be implemented by leaders and rulers of civilizations and societies. We struggle to hold on to this conceptual reality program. We struggle to hold on to the blue print, and to hold on to the social, religious and corporate imprints. Our lives are archetypical and because of this we live within the boundaries of predictability’s. We are the result of all preceding civilizations, molded and shaped by design into a model which represents today’s human. Redefining the meaning of evolution plays an important role as we seek to broaden our understanding.

Are we evolved because we use a knife, fork and plate, are we evolved because we don’t hunt and kill our own food, are we evolved because we have a spiritual or religious belief or program, are we evolved because we channel other beings, are we evolved because we eat raw food, are we evolved because we wear clothes, are we evolved because we use credit cards or have money, are we evolved because those that rule tell us so? What is evolution? Evolution is defined as a process of development. Perhaps it is more a sense of primal sophistication when we truly examine the advancements held by previous cultures which exceeded our own. We are a society obsessed with topical value. This acts as a covering over our fears about discovering the technology of our design. There is bias in our ability to examine the spectrum of possibilities in how we came to be (in human form that is).


Trinity: I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn't really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It's the question that drives us, Neo. It's the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.

Neo: What is the Matrix?

Trinity: The answer is out there, Neo, and it's looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.

In Greek mythology Morpheus is known as the god of dreams. Neo prior to his awakening was operating under the spell of sleep as most are. His search for Morpheus was symbolic of his realization that his world was not quite what he had been lead to believe. So it is with most of us, there is a feeling that the life we see and experience is somehow overshadowing a more profound possibility of one’s existence.

So, are we asking questions? Not just one question but many questions. It is the questions which reach in and pulls us out from the belly of archetypical reality. Our path of questioning is further infiltrated by a programmed arrangement of reality woven into the mind. To ask questions that exceed the preset, collective programs becomes the code to unlocking that part of us that seem to have been held hostage or imprisoned.

In this polarized reality we are sold fear and fluff. We are controlled by both through the filter of government, corporations, religions, education, and spiritual fluff and by those outside of the human game. We are told that “You are in danger but don’t worry we have just what you need”. People remain confused about what they should hold as a belief while running around outside of themselves; if there is such a thing as outside. They become caught in the holographic projection of what appears to be out there. Kaiser Permanente has a quote that says Life is Out there, Get up, Get out and thrive; this phrase can be decoded by the brain in several different ways. We are reminded that life is not happening inside of us but outside of ourselves. To experience the fullness of the matrix requires that we buy into the notion of everything being outside of us.

Operating in the mindset of externalizing is the archetypical approach and a necessary response in fully engaging in the matrix of reality. We are playing in a holodeck. The entire structure which we identify as our universe and solar system is an ever changing holodeck despite our inability to see its interchangeability. This is what scientists are discovering. What they now understand is that reality is holographic.

Where did the word holodeck come from: (taken from Wikipedia)

A holodeck is a simulated reality facility located on starships and starbases in the fictional Star Trek universe. An episode of Star Trek: The Animated Series, "The Practical Joker", formed the groundwork for the idea in the 1970s by portraying a recreation room capable of holographic simulations. The holodeck was first seen in the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Encounter at Farpoint". The concept of a holodeck was first shown to humans through an encounter with the Xyrillan race in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Unexpected".

The holodeck is depicted as an enclosed room in which objects and people are simulated by a combination of replicated matter, tractor beams, and shaped force fields onto which holographic images are projected.

To say that this is simply a television show for entertainment is to also observe ones limitations. All such concepts explored by the human mind are the result of tapping into the engineering of reality. In a quote from Ray Bradbury science fiction writer; We are the miracle of force and matter making itself over into imagination and will. Incredible. The Life Force experimenting with forms. You for one. Me for another. The Universe has shouted itself alive. We are one of the shouts.

What is the magic word or the realization that will allow us to experience this interchangeability? It is our ability to question! What questions are you asking? Questions are composed based on the depth of our curious mind. What are you curious about? Are you curious about your existence or of this overall experience we call reality. The extent of what we experience will always be limited to the range of our curiosity and questioning. "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."— T.S. Eliot

Although one might defend being open and explorative it would serve to examine the boundaries which may exist regarding the extent to which one may choose to investigate. What are your fears about going deeper? When one draws a final analysis about the nature of reality such conclusions reflect limitations. When we become conclusive about the nature of the spirit or of the mind or of creation these are clues into our perception base. Our limitations are showing themselves to us and when realized this should be viewed as an opportunity to go deeper. In all that is being discovered by not only scientists but by all those of a deeper curious nature; it is simply allowing us to experience yet another angle of the many faces of creation. We may perhaps begin to realize that there is never a final analysis.

In walking through the valley of archetypical reality we must remain aware that when completely submerged we are limited only to viewing our lives through the filter of the collective model. The word archetypical expresses the typical architecture or design of the collective model of reality. To begin to question this construct is to continuously alter this collective model of reality. Without the penetration of questions into the fabric of structured beliefs we have bound ourselves to the rules in place. We will continue to recreate reality from old memories steaming through the collective data stream as well as our own unique data bank. In the film Inception a significant quote was Never recreate from your memory. Always imagine new places!.

Our analysis of each other is also filtered through collective programs. In order to make comparative distinctions of good or bad, right or wrong, rich or poor there has to be a barometer by which to measure and interpret feelings and emotions. The general holodeck of collective reality is programmed to function based on particular principles. We then respond to those principles through our emotions drawing conclusions about one another in our prefab environment. To be other than typical or to operate outside the realm of acceptability is unnerving for most and we must be clear in understanding what this means. To operate outside the realm of acceptability’s does not mean that one cannot work within the corporate environment or participate in some of the mechanics of this reality. It is about the inner transition and not so much about a topical approach which simply carry the appearance of freedom. The workplace can be used as an amazing fitness center for ones evolution for one is given an opportunity several times per day to step up their game.

This is equivalent to our transformation in the madness of the matrix. We are making our way through despite the survival program. To recognize each moment and each experience as an opportunity instead of an obstacle can become the magic wand. Leaping into this mindset can be a challenging feat especially in the beginning of experimenting with this concept. It is however a major key in working with the holodeck. It will allow us to experience the interchangeability of reality which is possible on all levels. What we must remember is that it is all about the questions; questions lead to answers which can potentially lead us beyond the valley of typical reality. It is the driving force that is taking us on a journey to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Nice Work! another synchronicity with this piece. My nature walk today brought up the questions I ask and questions any of us ask. If we can ask them, we can also answer them.

I really enjoyed reading this! Love & Light :)

Evol...just love spelled backward.. Through the process we get there and we staighten it out. We go through the matrix, we evolve, get over that and ourselves, and we become LOVE. " As you said,"It is the driving force that is taking us on a journey to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.'

Thanks for the questions. I read your post 4 times because the holodeck was operational, and heck, "Leaping into this mindset can be a challenging feat "

Speaking of Holodecks:

Mr Peabody: “Bullwinkle, set the “Wayback Machine”, I meam, "Holodeck Machine", for "1989 - Billy Joel". Sonia Barrett writer featured on Spirit Library, is adding a new verse to Billy‘s hit song, "We Didn't Start The Fire"….” "Ready Bullwinkle?"

Birth control, Ho Chi Minh, Richard Nixon back again,
Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, punk rock

O-sa-ma bin la-den, Lind-say Lo-han, Lib-ya,
Ra-dia-tion poi--son, Charlie Sheen, cancer, death, ill-ness…

Chorus, (all together):
“We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it”
