Tijdens het ronddobberen op het 'net' vond dit bericht mij. :p
U kunt het hier of op het 'Project Camelot Forum' lezen als u dat wilt,
vond gewoon dat het even geplaatst moest worden ...
ik laat het artikel (van Project Camelot) voor zichzelf spreken.

'I apologize for the length of this quoted material,
but I had a sense of needing to share this material for others to stumble upon
and maybe get from it,what I have. A sense of awe for the bluntness in the way this was written,
and admiration for the knowledge contained within these sentences.
This is an excerpt from the book The Active side of Infinity by Carlos Castaneda.
I actually came across it reading another book altogether.'

'At one point, Carlos Castaneda’s Don Juan told him:
We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos
and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners.

The predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest.
If we want to act independently, it demands that we don’t do so…
You have arrived, by your effort alone, to what the shamans of ancient Mexico called the topic of topics.
I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner.
Indeed we are held prisoner! This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico.

“Why has this predator taken over in the fashion that you’re describing, don Juan?” I asked. “There must be a logical explanation.”
“There is an explanation,” don Juan replied, “which is the simplest explanation in the world. They took over because we are food for them,
and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance.
Just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops. Therefore, their food is always available to them.”

I felt that my head was shaking violently from side to side. I could not express my profound sense of unease and discontentment,
but my body moved to bring it to the surface. I shook from head to toe without any volition on my part.
“No, no, no, no,” I heard myself saying. “This is absurd, don Juan.
What you’re saying is something monstrous. It simply can’t be true, for sorcerers or for average men, or for anyone.”
“Why not?” don Juan asked calmly. “Why not? Because it infuriates you?”
“Yes, it infuriates me,” I retorted. “Those claims are monstrous!” […]

“I want to appeal to your analytical mind,” don Juan said.
“Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the intelligence of man the engineer
and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior.
Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of beliefs, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores.

They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and ego maniacal.”
‘But how can they do this, don Juan?’ I asked, somehow angered further by what he was saying. ‘Do they whisper all that in our ears while we are asleep?’
‘No, they don’t do it that way. That’s idiotic!’ don Juan said, smiling.
‘They are infinitely more efficient and organized than that.

In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver — stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it.
They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind.

The predators’ mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now.'
