We Are All Living In An Hypnotic State
“Slowly, slowly, catchee monkey”.
Slowly, slowly, we lose our sense of reality, and give up our confidence and carefreeness.
We stare at a screen – “Look into my eyes … interact with my screen … let the computer control you while you think you are controlling the computer.”
The monkey thinks it’s controlling what’s on the screen, while it is itself being controlled.
“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”
– witches in Macbeth.
The witches (the authorities) are calling Macbeth (the people) “wicked” when, in reality, they are the ones who are “wicked” to the extent that Macbeth’s (the people’s) wickedness can be blamed upon the witches’ prophecies (propaganda).
Meditation is the recognition of being distracted.
