Like a fish in water who doesn't recognize water because it is everywhere, both outside and within the fish itself, many of us don't realize,
We have become conditioned to accept as normal the fact that,
It is important to
realize that in a psychic epidemic, the majority of people can
appear entirely "normal."
That the mental 'health' community, which should be concerned with psychic hygiene (both personal and collective),
By not recognizing the nature of Wetiko disease, the mental health community has become its unwitting agents, helping the disease to propagate.
Ultimately speaking, it's
not a question of integrating
Wetiko disease into the existing
diagnostic manual, but rather, of radically expanding, up-leveling,
and re-visioning our understanding of the nature of both health and
illness relative to each other.
Our collective psychosis is invisible to us, as it manifests itself both in the very way we are looking and in the unspoken ways we have been conditioned to not perceive.
Due to its cloak of invisibility, we don't see our madness, a psychic blindness which renders us complicit in the creation of our own madness.
This complicity is
potentially empowering news, however, since it also signals that we
are indeed co-creators of our own
reality, and not helpless victims.
This fluidly moving, nomadically wandering bug reciprocally reinforces and feeds off and into each of our unconscious blind spots, which is how it non-locally propagates itself throughout the field.
In Wetiko there is a code or logic which affects/infects awareness in a way analogous to how the DNA in a virus passes into and infects a cell.
Jack D. Forbes (in Columbus and Other Cannibals - The Wetiko Disease of Exploitation, Imperialism, and Terrorism) concludes that,
Wetiko culture gets taught both at home and in "the academy", where people become certified in the ways of its world, and are thus accredited and empowered to spread its corrupting ways on ever grander scales with ever vaster and more devastating consequences.
Frighteningly, the Wetiko psychosis is becoming ever more institutionalized and incorporated into our corporate culture and its way of thinking.
Once unconscious content takes possession of certain individuals, it irresistibly draws them together by mutual attraction and knits them into groups tied together by their shared madness that can easily swell into an avalanche of insanity.
A psychic epidemic is a
closed system, which is to say that it is insular and not open to
any new information or informing influences from the outside world
which contradict its fixed, limited, and limiting perspective.
An impenetrable field, like a protective bubble, is collectively conjured up around their shared psychosis that literally resists consciousness and perpetuates the spell-like trance of those in its thrall.
There is no talking
rationally, using logic or facts, with someone under the spell of
the psychic epidemic, as their ability to reason and to use
discernment has been disabled and distorted in service to the
psychic pathogen which they carry.
We are on guard, even paranoid, regarding contagious diseases of the body, but we are woefully asleep and unconcerned about, and hence more susceptible to, catching the more dangerous collective diseases of the mind, which are reaching pandemic proportions in our world today.
The Wetiko culture offers no incentive for them to self-reflectingly speculate upon their increasingly depraved condition; on the contrary, the nonlocal field (below image) configures itself to enable, further cultivate, and deepen their psychosis.
When someone is a full-blown, unrecognized Wetiko, the field around them torques so as to protect, collude with, and feed into their psychosis in a way that entrances those around them.
Similar to how an octopus squirts ink in order to hide, a psychic field gets conjured up around full-blown wetikos which obfuscates their malfeasance.
In a situation of "group narcissism," wetikos at different stages of the disease assume particular postures and roles relative to each other that protect and shield themselves from their own insanity and darkness.
In a full-blown psychic
epidemic, the conscious and the unconscious actually trade places,
which is to say the unconscious steps into the driver's seat, which
should be occupied by consciousness.
The type of person ripe for falling prey to the Wetiko infection,
Not in touch with their inner guidance, they project authority outside of themselves and become very suggestible to the agreed-upon consensus opinion of the dominant pack.
When we give away our power, there is always someone bearing the authority of "the State" who is more than happy to accept our offering, feeding the insatiable will-to-power of the shadow, which becomes collectively mobilized.
In a collective psychosis, people literally stop thinking for themselves and let others think for them, like sheep (or "sheeple") who just follow wherever they are being led, even if it's off the nearest cliff.
Losing touch with their
own discernment and ability for critical thinking, the "mass man"
becomes part of the mindless herd and falls prey to "group-think,"
whose members co-dependently enable each other to uphold their
shared version of the Wetiko world.
The agreed-upon version of reality takes on a weight and momentum of its own and thereby becomes the established dogma of what is collectively imagined to be really happening.
Like a religious truth, it is irrationally believed like an act of faith by its card-carrying members, even if overwhelming evidence points to the contrary.
Such a group consensus about the nature of reality gets increasingly hard to sustain as time passes.
However, as, like a house of cards ready to collapse at any moment, its vision of the world is based on the fundamental error of not being true.
This is an outer
behavioral reflection of the inner state of being under the sway of
the self-destructive Wetiko parasite.
All of the mainstream, culturally sanctioned, corporatized institutions are in the business of indoctrination, telling us what to think and not think, as well as how to think.
Our mind is continually
being massaged into shape by the prevailing culture, our true face
lifted as our spiritual pockets are picked.
The culture (sic) that informs and forms around Wetiko illness is itself a channel of its transmission and growth. If we sign on the dotted line and subscribe to its viewpoint, its life-denying culture will gradually subsume us into itself, enlisting us as its agents who unwitingly do its bidding.
This is how the
ever-expanding, self-generating psychic empire of collective
psychosis works, as it increasingly takes over and approaches
