I have been reading David Icke’s tome, the Trap in recent days.
It is, like all Icke’s work a long read that takes us (to coin a phrase I realise comes from the film the Matrix,and originally from Alice in Wonderland), deep down the rabbit hole as he meanders between shapeshifting lizards, Greys, Yaldabaoth, the Annulaki, Jinn, Satan, Wetiko and so forth.
I would not be interested so much in these stories were it not for the amazing connections he makes.
If nothing else, David is a dot joiner!
He links all this to the covid hoax and the fake vaccine, the Great Reset and what he calls the Cult’s plans to link human consciousness to the Cloud and to enslave what is left of humanity after the Great Cull.
We need not theorise too much. They speak for themselves.
He also provides he regards as the sole way out of all this, which is a shift in perception to a 5D awareness based on the understanding that who we are has nothing to do with the labels we give to ourselves and so identify with – male, female, inbetween, etc..
We are none of that but we are Consciousness having a human experience.
It has been an extraordinarily difficult time absorbing material that is, in part, so familiar to me but explained in a way that challenges me in a way that nothing else has.
I have certainly swallowed the red pill (the Matrix again) and taken a deep dive. It has almost put me into a type of brain storm that has left me wondering how much of this has come the hugeness of what I am trying to absorb and how much is from a decline in my own health and faculties.
The sharpness has gone both physically (I find myself often shuffling round like an 80 year old man leading me to think that there are probably 80 year-olds around in better shape than me) and mentally (I am finding it harder to think clearly and incisively and to remember things – something that hampers thinking coherently and writing incisively like nothing else).
In many ways, David Icke’s escape from the Trap is very familiar – it is the Perennial Philosophy, the understanding that I have lived with for 30 years, that I am THAT itself and what we need to do is throw aside the spiritual quest, the idea that it is something limited in Time-Space, that it is imminent and requires a realisation of what is there all the time, a shift in Awareness.
Understanding this conceptually is not as difficult as to fully grasp Icke’s concepts of what the true nature of the world is.
Absorbing that and accepting that there might be worlds that our mundane consciousness is scarcely aware of has produced a crisis (of the Chinese sort, I think) of sorts and what follows is my weak attempt to make sense of it all, as much for myself as for any readers.
If you can’t read the book then I recommend that you listen through David Icke’s conversation on his book with London Real’s Brian Rose.
There is a series of videos, of which the following is one, that provide extracts from the interview.
I shall post these separately as a resource.
I shall now try and distill what I think it is all about.
So much of David Icke’s philosophy can be related back to the 1999 movie, the Matrix.
There are so many reasons why I would avoid the movie. As a somewhat old fashioned person I am not drawn to Hollywood movies of the last 30 years, neither to science fiction in general or to the comic book like narrative and violence in particular. I would prefer to restrict myself to books on philosophy and spirituality or to the likes of Plato’s allegory of the cave and I would were it not that the Matrix has entered the collective imagination.
Everything is absolutely dominated by the new technology that seems to be advancing at alarming rapidity, the artificial intelligence that the Cult that David Icke exposes, is wishing to replace humans and human consciousness with.
The traditions of old had the understanding but had to explain it in symbolic language.
Perhaps a different language might fit the bill. In many ways this is a story of the hero (or uebermensch), the Buddha and his process of Enlightenment.
It also asks the question of why the mass of people do not want Enlightenment and choose to be in the Matrix.
Everyone, it seems talks with the language of the Matrix which is a false, computer-generated world that is generated by machines to enslave humanity and feed off their energy.
This understanding does not just come from David Icke’s head – there are plenty of people who are asking if we live in a simulation and make the parallels with the Matrix.
Here are just two examples:
Now let’ s get back to David Icke.
First the uncontroversial part.
He points that what we see with our five senses is only a tiny brand of frequency within the electromagnetic spectrum. He points out that the entire spectrum (what we call ‘light’. is estimated to be just 0.005% of what exists in the Universe so that the only band of frequency that we can “see” is a tiny bit of the 0.005 %.
What normal human beings see is only a small fraction of that tiny slither. How can we say that we have a hold on ‘reality’?
We are basically blind. Put in the most simple terms what we see with the five senses is not only limited but is a simulation, a copy generated, according to Icke, by a non-human form (he has various ways to describe this).
There are three elements to ‘human’ that bring clarity to our plight.
(1) 3D – The body-program insert that interacts with the simulation as part of the simulation – the ‘computer game character’.
(2) 4D – The level of us called mind that operates in the frequency range of the Fourth Dimension and directly receives the projected information of the simulation which it decodes into the illusion of a 3-D reality including the body.
(3) 5D – Consciousness in the ‘Fifth Dimension’ and beyond into Infinite Reality which I will refer to as expanded consciousness or awareness.
So the next thing is to ask WHY.
One of the Cult’s prime objectives is to create a separation between five-sense Body-Mind and expanded consciousness to isolate the population in a reality and perceptual prison that I will expand upon as we go along.
Icke asks, how did we get into this mess? Self-identity.
How do we get out of it? Self-identity, he says.
We stop identifying with body, mind or even soul, and we identify with being the spirit of the All That Is. The True and Infinite ‘I’.
Do that and we will connect with it and everything changes.
Healing that separation is what people call ‘awakening’ or ‘waking up’.
I think the computer analogy is quite apt at various levels.
The computer and specifically wi-fi serves as a good analogy as to how the frequencies picked up by the five senses are decoded and translated into a world we take to be real.
“A computer decodes information from Wi-Fi into the form that we see on the screen and the text and images we are observing are inside the computer in the same way that perceived physical reality is inside us. Different areas of the brain decode those signals into the perception of sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste to construct the sense of reality that we experience as an external world when, in that form – so-called physicality – it only exists in our head”
Throughout, Icke says that the contention that the mind is in the body is mistaken.
Rather, the body is within the mind.
“I am saying that the body is in the mind and what the mind believes and feels, the body will reflect”
Here he describes who exactly is controlling us.
A SIMULATION WITHIN A SIMULATION
If we take the aim of the simulation to be the total control over humanity and its enslavement, and:
“Everything from the simulation itself to the Metaverse is about seizing control of the mind’s sense of reality to ensure that its beyond-the-simulation self, the eternal ‘I’, is marginalised and its influence severed.
We start to see what Icke calls “a simulation within a simulation”:
We are looking at the mind perceptually trapped by a Metaverse within a virtual reality AI Smart Grid within a virtual reality AI simulation. The plan eventually is to absorb the mind completely into cyberspace without even a body and lock it away in the bewilderment of a Matrix within a Matrix within a Matrix within a Matrix. All would be designed to block the mind’s access to its true identity which would allow escape from the digital maze
The aim is to take people from identification with normally goes with being human and making that identication still narrower.
To quote David Icke:
“Everything from the simulation itself to the Metaverse is about seizing control of the mind’s sense of reality to ensure that its beyond-the-simulation self, the eternal ‘I’, is marginalised and its influence severed. We are looking at the mind perceptually trapped by a Metaverse within a virtual reality AI Smart Grid within a virtual reality AI simulation.
The plan eventually is to absorb the mind completely into cyberspace without even a body and lock it away in the bewilderment of a Matrix within a Matrix within a Matrix within a Matrix.”
All would be designed to block the mind’s access to its true identity which would allow escape from the digital maze. Or rather mazes – lots of them with multiple loops and timelines.”
The same process of suppressed self-identity can be seen playing out in the ‘human’ world. We once identified as men or women with a mind and maybe a religion, race, job, and income bracket.”
Basically that was it. Today we have strings of letters to indicate the fine detail of identity. One university has LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM or lesbian, gay, bisexual, ransgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, gender-fuck, polyamorous, bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadism/masochism.”
Old human labels are being sub-divided and subdivided and with each sub-division the identity of the True ‘I’ – Infinite Awareness – is further distanced and diminished. I am All That Is, Has Been And Ever Can Be becomes ‘I am a human’ becomes ‘I am man or woman’ becomes ‘I am lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, gender-fuck, polyamorous, bondage/discipline, dominance/submission and sadism/masochism’.”
Icke addresses the question of reincarnation . Despite saying it is absolutely real, he asks the question why would someone come back to a reality miserable for most people on Earth to learn more lessons.
The answer, he says, to nip this cycle in the bud through a realisation of who we really are.
A HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE
Icke cites a book I read many years ago, the Holographic Universe: The Revolutionary Theory of Reality by Michael Talbot
“I have told the story in some previous books described by Michael Talbot in The Holographic Universe in which a stage hypnotist was performing at a private party.
A man called Tom was put in a hypnotic trance and told that when he ‘woke up’ he would not be able to see his daughter.
The hypnotist guided the daughter to stand right in front of her sitting father so he was looking directly into her belly.
Tom was asked if he could see his daughter in the room. He looked around and said ‘no’ while his daughter was inches away.
The hypnotist put his hand in the small of her back and asked Tom what he was holding.
‘A watch’, he said, while his daughter stood between him and the watch.
He was asked to read an inscription on the watch which he did.
To ‘normal’ reality what I have just described is impossible, but in fact it can be explained so simply. As with everything in our reality, the daughter’s body was a waveform field of information operating outside of visible light. It was beyond her father’s sight senses. For him to see her he had to decode her field into a holographic form operating within visible light. The hypnotic suggestion that Tom would not be able to see his daughter firewalled his brain not to decode her field. In his reality she remained in waveform and so not only was he unable to see her – she could not block his view within holographic reality of the watch.”
Here is an interview from early 1990s. Sadly, Talbot died in 1993.
A Conscious Universe
Rupert Sheldrake, English scientist and research researcher in the field of parapsychology is another person to pay attention to.
Have a look at his Wikipedia item and how he is vilified and you will understand why.
PAPAJI – “Call Off The Search”
If this line of inquiry appeals to you I fully recommend this documentary about H.W.L. Poonja (Poonja-ji) and his teachings based on his guru Ramana Maharshi. In a similar way to David Icke talking about reincarnation Poonja-ji invites meditation practitioners to give up the endless search for Truth and embrace it instead by realising who you really Are.
After watching the documentary, I was moved to travel to India to meet Poonja-ji. Immediately, there were synchronicities such as the very first person I met in the hotel in Delhi (when I was not sure what to next) was someone who had just come from Poonja-ji so he was able to tell me to travel to Lucknow. As a result of an audience like you will see in the video I had a profound realisation that has stayed with me throughout the years through many ups-and-downs.
I was given a spiritual name, Vishram, which, I was told means “eternal rest after a long journey”
Poonja-ji’s sole instruction was to make no effort, be quiet, don’t think.
To most people, caught in their own mental formations, this would sound preposterous but this is available to everyone while at the same time being a matter of Grace.
That would bring us back to Plato’s allegory of the Cave and the Matrix and ask just how many people would choose to take the red pill and be free as opposed to those who are attached to their own captivity.
I would invite you to take the red pill, go down the rabbit barrow and dis-identify with all that keeps you captive and identify with your true identity.
