TV is the basic inspiration for our realities today, the standard reality-creation device. The dom-society  flood your screens with various shows, all apparently separate, in order to validate the ‘reality’ of your reality-notions, your personal TV show, which really has been created by them in the first place. The technique is to create validation from a large number of sources, thereby solidifying that notion of reality in our minds. From there, we design our sets, do our casting, and write our scripts, after that format. This is the technique of the dom-society to get the masses to formulate their realities in a certain way, but this isn’t their inherent power. This is just the way reality works, that they utilize for their own purposes. Through proper understanding, and utilization of that understanding, we can use these same techniques to design our own realities.

They flood your screens with standard sets, props, character-themes, and demonstrations of proper and improper moral-behavior. This programs our minds to think things ‘are’ a certain way, or ‘should be’ a certain way. Suddenly, we find the characters that we have seen on our screens in our lives! Suddenly, the plot structures we have noticed on our screens can be found in our lives! Your ‘reality’ is really just your own little section of the large-scale TV-studio society that is America. Develop your own characters, your own plots, your own set. Take control of your little slice of this industry. Develop your inner-reality thoroughly, and then bring about a merger with your inner-reality and your outer-reality. From here comes the great game of life, a playful interaction between the inner-world and the outer-world, where each flows into and inspires the other.

“The medium is the message.” Each development in communicative technology, each new medium, has within itself certain inevitable progressions. It inevitably evolves in a certain way according to its nature. So any specific expression within a given medium is not that important, because ultimately it is going to evolve according to its own nature, and THAT is the message, not some particular manifestation. So with the development of television and all of that, which represents the past-present medium, there were certain inevitable results. One of these was the celebrity culture that is so apparent today. With television, ‘characters’ are not left to the imagination, as it was with text. Rather, any given individual or scene represented with video is about THAT person. Inevitably, then, we as a society would develop preferences for certain archetypal characters which would come to be associated with certain faces, or individuals.

The Internet is laying the foundation for a new medium. Let us say this is the present-future medium, as it is somewhat in existence today, but has only just begun its evolution. One aspect of its inevitable evolution is a massive expansion of the celebrity culture. The previous medium, based on television and movies, was essentially monopolized by a few large corporations. Beyond this, the essential point is that there was a limited quantity of material that would actually be produced and viewed by the public at large. This leads to a small, aristocratic celebrity culture that the majority of the population is jealous of, and occupies the minds of the societal masses. With the E-volution, these restrictions do not exist. For a time, the society will have a hard time realizing and taking advantage of the new possibilities, and will use these new possibilities to serve the purposes of, and propogate, the television culture and its ideals; this is where we are now. Inevitably, though, the society realizes that anyone can be a ‘celebrity.’ We do not need to be limited to only a few celebrities which are nationally or internationally recognized. There will be more and more talented people who desire to live what we may call a ‘celebrity lifestyle.’

What to do with this influx of interesting and talented people, potential celebrities, that we are seeing today, and will continue to see more and more of as time goes on? With this expansion of the celebrity culture will come a localization of the celebrity culture. There are something like 300 million citizens in America today. Let us say there are 30 real celebrities in America, though the number could differ depending on how you look at it, but these differences are inconsequential in terms of the point I’m making. This means that there is one celebrity for every 10 million citizens. The overwhelming majority of the fans of these celebrities will never have any interaction, letalone significant interaction, with these people, despite the fact that they would love that. Let us now consider an America that has 30,000 ‘celebrities,’ about 1,000 times more than we have today. This may seem strange, but here each ‘celebrity’ corresponds to 10,000 citizens, which would in general be localized. Now you have a much more manageable celebrity-fan situation, where the ‘celebrities’ have the same type of exposure, if not more, that constitutes a celebrity in our minds, and the corresponding lifestyle and fan adoration, yet with a realistic ability for the fans to interact with the people they are fans of.

As I say, this new societal structure would in general sort itself out according to locality. There will be a development of many well-developed ‘niches,’ based on the great diversity of interests among people. These niches will overlap in certain ways, and will have their own corresponding ‘celebrities.’ Based on various factors of appeal, each ‘celebrity’ will have their own mass of following, in terms of numbers and geographical range, as well as cross-niche appeal. Their primary base will be local, but they could potentially expand to large areas. Now when we think of the celebrity lifestyle, there are a few things to consider. It is partially based on their level of exposure and popularity, which we already addressed would be fulfilled. It is also partially based on the LIFESTYLE of the celebrity, which we will inevitably discover is available to all of us basically. The other thing to consider is that it is not only about BEING a celebrity. Being friends with, or dating, a celebrity is also very exciting. With this expansion of the celebrity culture, and its corresponding localization and intimacy, the prospect of becoming friends with, or dating, a celebrity will become very realistic. What this means is that everyone will essentially be able to live the celebrity lifestyle, whether or not they themselves are one of the actual ‘celebrities.’ Right now the situation is that there are a few people living lifestyles that most of the rest of the citizenry wishes they were living. As this E-volution occurs, the development of the new medium through the Internet, we will all have any sort of lifestyle we would like available to us. As it has been implied in my mind, but a potential objection I can see being raised, all of this does NOT imply the stereotype of getting drunk every night and doing various wreckless thing. This is only one possibility, that in some people’s minds has become a stereotype. The point is that there will be no limits to our lifestyles, and we will be able to take that freedom of choice and do with our lives whatever we wish, with no limits.

This is an audio segment from Timothy Leary’s “How To Operate Your Brain,” with my visual work done over it to correspond to his words, as well as to help stimulate certain thoughts and feelings to help you get the most out of it. This segment deals primarily with the importance of your eyes, and what they see, as well as how to use them. Who controls your eyes controls your mind, controls your reality. Our minds, and consequently our realities, are being formulated by establishment TV corporations, as well as political, religious, and educational authorities. We need to take control of our own eyes, our own brains, and our own realities. I intend to further learn audio/visual editing techniques, and continue making new and unique videos. I’d really appreciate it if you watch it and let me know what you think! 😀 😎

There is a higher plane of existence that tries to reach us through various transmissions. These transmissions include writings, TV shows, movies, songs, things on the internet and technology in general. They call us from a place of more direct reality-creation. A reality that is much more fluid. They can be very useful in developing our own consciousness in the direction of easier and more direct reality creation. The nature of the higher planes of existence are very subtle, and very intertwined with our “normal” reality. They overlap in such a way as if they are better and more exciting stories about events in our “normal” realities, or based on them. You could also look at our reality as a slowed down and simpler or more boring version of the higher planes. All of these realities co-exist through various possibilities that simultaneously exist as different realities within one probability field.
