Memory, from Etymonline:
- The ability of a system to record information about things or events with the facility of recalling them later at will.
- A record of a thing or an event stored and available for later use by the organism.
- The time within which past events can be or are remembered.
Note words like “system”, “record”, “time”, and phrases like “record information”. This is programming language/spell-casting.
Addendum: After completing this post, I realized that I didn’t provide sufficient background for the premise that what we call memory is a technology. Here is additional information in support of this. The word “memory” comes from an ancient Greek word mnemon. As we know, many of the program technologies (including the word I just used) come from concepts (another Greek word) designed in the era of the “Great Philosophers” such as Hippocrates, Aristotle, Socrates, etc. When we hear that a word “comes from the Greek” it should be a signal to pay attention to what’s happening in the background, as well as to listen deeper to what is being said. Mnemon even has its very own Titan from Greek mythology, a clear indication that this is a technology.
From Wyzant, an explanation of the origins of Mnemonics, a word that comes from Greek mythology and is part of the same root as mnemon. The author explains, “Mnemonic shares an etymology with Mnemosyne, the Greek titan that represented memory. Mnemosyne was the daughter of Gaia (Mother Earth) and Uranus (god of the Sky). Mnemosyne was the mother of the nine muses (all of whom were fathered by Zeus). They slept together for nine nights, each night yielding another muse. Mnemosyne also ruled over a pool in Hades, connected to the river Lethe. The dead would drink from the river Lethe so that they would not remember a previous life once they were reincarnated; however, initiates were encouraged to drink from Mnemosyne’s pool when they died, instead of drinking from Lethe.”
In the same article, mnemonics is explained as follows. “Mnemonics, plural of mnemonic is the study of techniques for ways to remember information more easily. Most often times, a mnemonic device involves taking the first letter of several words one desires to remember, and then changing them into an easily remembered word. For example, HOMES describes the names of the Great Lakes – Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, and Superior.
“Mnemonic comes from Greek mnemonikos, which means “pertaining to memory,” which is also from mnemon, which means “remembering or mindful” and from memne, which means “memory, record, or epitaph.” This word is based on mnasthai, “to remember,” which comes from men-, which means “to think.””
The article goes on to explain how to employ memory technology to make memory more efficient. Article Source: https://www.wyzant.com/resources/lessons/english/etymology/words-mod-mnemonics
It is the premise of this article that the technology we call memory is a diversion of energy away from gnosis, which is our true state of connected Being to the All that we are, the All that is you, the All that is me.
One of the many things that seem to keep the individuals of the collective community engaged in endless round robins of obsessive contemplation is the notion of lost memory. Memories are stolen, or the ability to remember is blocked, and so on. “We are a species with amnesia” is an oft-repeated meme. The purpose of this piece is to explore what is memory and what is truth, and what we use to access both.
It is an exercise with great benefits to contemplate the purpose of those things which are repeated, not simply within media for those matters are only the bread and circuses of our experience in linearity. Rather, those ideas which are inserted and re-inserted again and again through the ritualization of expression that we call repetition. To understand that repetition is used as a programming tool can lead to many insights regarding personal and collective experience.
This is not to say that there has not been the deliberate and intentional hijacking of our connection to the truth in order to keep us enslaved within a realm designed to perpetuate ignorance and suffering. What I am describing here is the way through which we can reclaim what is ours by sovereign right versus the trap into which we are encouraged through programming to divert our energies. Keep in mind how we are simultaneously taught that memory is of paramount importance while being warned it is faulty and not to be trusted. Such conflicts are hallmarks of programs because they keep you spinning in an endless unresolved and unresolveable loop distracting you from contemplating what might actually free you.
Ponder within your own mind what sorts of actions are repeated, for it is more than verbalization and more than the habitual activities of daily existence such as brushing our teeth or making up our beds. Our lives are replete with repetitious phrases and constructs, redundancies layered upon redundancies that serve multiple agendas. All are part of a greater w(H)ole to fix your consciousness within a construct which the programmers created, and remain the owner/operator thereof no matter how many times you hear repeated the idea that there is an “alliance” working behind the scenes to wrest control from the oppressors/designers. To re-peat a thing is to force it into consciousness—mind made manifest. It is the key component of indoctrination because it is hypnosis and hypnosis is the way you are programmed. Watch people watching teevee sometime but with eyes attuned to the energetic dynamics and you will inner-stand this on a level not before available to you.
Without repetition the sacred core of Attention is free to explore the totality of consciousness without fetters, so the ritualizations have to be enforced through careful and long-term cultural manipulation. Let’s explore one small example that is likely common to all.
Think back to your childhood. As earlier as you can likely re-member, you were told over and over again to pick something up or put something “away”. You were asked to “remember where you put it” or grilled by a frustrated older sibling or parent about where you “misplaced” some thing that he or she was looking for. The constant and consistent reinforcement of the importance of things is a cornerstone of culture, not simply “tool use” as the anthropologist academics call it but the fixation upon manipulation of this realm through proxy. If you inner-stand the reasons for fixation this will resonate. Such actions and in-struction (the forced internalization of structure) would have been repeated so frequently that your small body screamed in frustration until you erupted in actual tantrums and screaming.
In western culture, the supremacy of things is unquestioned because to transfer sacred attention away from your core is the only way they can keep you sufficiently distracted and thus ineffective. We have ritualized “order” in our lives and homes through obeisance to their supposed pride of place. We spend great resources on special furniture to hold them—shrines to protect them from dust or fingerprints or breakage. Industries were created to provide “organization” to entire rooms dedicated to holding them called closets. Yet without that early indoctrination about the proper order of “things” we would never accept the constructs associated with their enshrinement.
I’m not advocating for everyone to suddenly become a clutter fuss and leave detritus strewn about your dwelling, work place or common areas. The spur for opposite reaction to any statement is itself another program artifact many now call the false binary. The middle way is ever the correct one—one can maintain the basic minimum of “things” and keep them in good working condition without engaging the indoctrination program. One can be both in the false artificial realm yet not of the false artificial realm by engaging Awareness and Attention.
It is through this Awareness and Attention that one can break the many technologies layered upon us, including the memory technology to which I am alluding in this article. The technology is employed for one purpose—to divert your Awareness and Attention away from Gnosis.
Here I am using “gnosis” instead of “knowing” because of the spellcasting present in the latter. The sounds of “know” and “no” are identical and thus null each other out when used unconsciously. So long as you are aware and engaging Awareness when you use the word “know” in conversation, you can break the nullifying effect, but only a tiny number can claim to be in perfect Awareness at all times (I am not one of them, and likely neither are you since you are reading this—someone in perfect Gnosis doesn’t need to read, ergo, etc.).
Clarifying these concepts is not intended to nudge you into self-judgment, which is just another waste of your energy. If you feel the diversion of self-judgment, that is an opportunity to re-direct your Attention back to gnosis. Think of Attention in the manner that is described in Castenada’s work—whether he was fabricating an elaborate ruse or not is unimportant as the concepts are sound and useful. Attention is the center of being, not passive or still as we are instructed in certain models, but an active and powerful force. If you are a Being, then the Attention is the action of Being.
When you are in Attention, memory is unnecessary and a burden. One can begin to See the functionality of memory as a diversion technology where the vital energies are siphoned away from the core of being into a machine that uses them to create more of itself through specializations. Here I am not speaking of the mind swipe that we collectively understand to be another of the invasive technologies, but the energy cultivated to ensure one remains obsessive over “memories”. This not only applies to the repeated memes in the New Age/Ascension Matrix circles, but to the secular and religious worlds equally. Specializations are a key component of the memory technology and when one chooses to “study” one specialization, it is in effect a capitulation to enticement, such as special knowledge (which is the inducement to power), societal position (prestige), or higher pay (elites aren’t “paid” so much as they simply own everything and do as they like with it).
These specializations are the wide variety of “industries” that are the foundation of what we refer to as Western Society. Every “degree program” is another facet of these specializations, and every time we demand a child to choose “what they want to be when they grow up” we are pressuring them into one of these specializations. To choose a “field of study” is to engage a contract that will siphon away much of your energies over the course of one’s incarnation.
These technologies can’t exist unless they are used, because they are all based on regular feeding of our core energies to machines created to harvest them. This is why we are referred to as “farmed” and why we are told that we must “consent” (the con was sent) to our state therein. But these obfuscate what is really going on and bypass Attention, throwing us into victim status. Babies are not born stupid and blind but are made so by parents and allo-parents (aunts, grandparents, etc.) who were indoctrinated and trained to be stupid and blind, and so on. In the oldest traditions, it is known that children are born wise (“you are ancient and you are wise” is an old birth greeting).
Comprehending your complicity in this system (a word that comes from the Latin for sewer) is part of your path to freedom and the freedom of everyone. The longer we spend in our manufactured anger over “being tricked” the longer we stay in the cage that is no-cage.
Aware and intent Attention is the key.
Consider the spellcasting of the word “real”. In English, this word is pronounced as “reel” which carries connotations of being on a hook and “reeled” in to a predator who has full control over you. In Spanish and Latin, the word “real” is pronounced “rey-al” and means “royal”. In English, we pronounce the word “royal” as “roil”, which means to cause tumult. A fragment of the true meaning of re-al is retained in our pronunciation of reality where the syllables retain integrity. This inner-standing I share with you was part of my own gnosis through my personal work of Attention combined with coalescing work of reason.
Another component of the memory technology is the reason/rational sub-program. To “ration” is to separate, while to “reason” is to coalesce or bring together. Both are unnecessary when you abandon the memory technology and re-al-ize (royal eyes) that you have always had access to full Gnosis.
Intuition is another component of the memory technology because it presents a false alternative. False alternatives are extremely important to the manipulators because they present friction to the duped, and friction gives you the false sense that you are struggling or working against something. Without that sensation, you would never agree to participate in any of the programs. This is why false binaries such as opposing political parties, sports teams and wars are so successful and participated in by so many.
Intuition is not the same thing as gnosis, but a blind faith reaching outward from your core. Right-action or right-thinking are part of Attention and Gnosis, and they occur inside you rather than outside. Intuition is the construct designed to encourage you to listen outside of your Gnosis by asking for “help” and waiting for a response. You have never needed help and you have never really been blind. You have beLIEved these things about yourself because you were indoctrinated into them before you could walk.
I recall vividly my first attempts at “intuition”. I couldn’t understand what in the world people were telling me to do, for I had from an early age been in Gnosis. It was the New c/Age entrainment on this topic (a thing that you can always spot by the insistence of its “veracity” and the claims to authority of this or that guru or “enlightened leader”) which led to my doubting my gnosis and encouraged me to try and “have intuition”. This was because all of these persons who I viewed as more skilled, talented and aware than me (they were all 10-20 years older) must know better than I did in my “limited experience”, for I wasn’t as well-read as they nor had I visited the multiple gurus and teachers, nor gone to workshops or college. Of course this must mean that I am inferior and ignorant in light of their achievements! So I forgot the child who stood bravely in front of an abusive parent and stated her truth even in the face of challenge (“how can you speak as if you know what you’re talking about? You’re only 7!) and I forgot the being who could write poetry full of ancient knowledge, or who was born innately fluent in the spellcasting of the realm purposefully and with intent, or who taught herself to read music before she was old enough to read words. For complicity, too, has many layers and dimensions and some of it is directed at ourselves.
Please understand that I share personal anecdotes as placemarkers for the larger map which I am navigating in these articles. I do not require anyone’s recognition, validation or praise, and I do not desire or seek emulation. I know who I am, and I am both you (connected) and NOT you (a sovereign individual). You must discover and navigate your own path, and employ the appropriate course corrections as you expand your access to your personal gnosis. By sharing the personal, it is my desire to demonstrate how experience can translate across these concepts.
Many meditation practices have been developed over the ages and each has its use, but there can be traps as these can become ritualized. There are many fallacies about meditation as well, such as the notion that you can simply space out, or go into trance, and that these are “meditating”. In truth, spacing out is what allows the program nodes to open and be easily accessed by the dark programmers. As a child I observed one of my parents “blank out” for long periods and then start moving and talking as though there had been no interruption. It was quite disconcerting. It becomes more so when you realize how many people are similarly “plugged in”.
I don’t share this with you to cause fear, because you can break any of these programs through the exercise of Aware Attention, even if you are yourself heavily programmed. We are here to break the programs because by actively disrupting them from the inside is the only way they can be effectively ended. Your sacred core of Attention is the greatest resource you own and is the reason for the ludicrous multiplicity of programs created to subvert it. Through these actions you will reclaim what you have never lost.
