It’s hardly controversial to suggest that the 24/7 mass media matrix in which untold millions are immersed might be doing much more harm than good. But what if this addictive, obsessive diet of gaudily-lit screens and never-ending noise was actually the core of an agenda to mesmerize and manipulate humanity toward much darker ends? With our collective disconnect from reality already well underway, trash culture – sometimes disguised as art – is creating a subspecies for whom the distinction between fact and fiction will soon no longer exist. People with a susceptibility to being programmed – or even possessed – by outside influences. And the purpose? The harvesting of human sentience for the seeding of machine intelligence.

    Jasun is really just an old-fashioned hairshirter. His idea of spirituality seems to be renouncing everything. He makes a lot of incisive points against mass media, and the conspiritainment cottage industry attached to it. But it’s all so joyless. Plus, this idea that people only like Kubrick movies because of the esoterica, not buying that. My mum’s favourite film is Barry Lyndon, and I can assure you she’s not watching 5 hour synchromystic slideshow presentations. As for Jasun, hopefully the rural life will give him something to smile about.

    1. Greg Moffitt says:

      I hear what you’re saying. We’re all on our own journey and Jasun’s background isn’t mine or, presumably, yours. I meet him where he is.

      1. Albert Woods says:

        Yeah, of course. I must have been in a bad mood when I wrote this! I agree, we all have our own paths to follow.

  2. Kate McFlinn says:

    Yes, great listening and I want to buy the book

    1. Greg Moffitt says:

      Thanks. Use the link on this page to buy the book as there’s currently a discount and you avoid lining the pockets of the corporates.

  3. Martin Hughes says:

    Sorry for the profanity, but FUCK ME that was profound. Looking forward to the next part!

    1. Jim Semlyen says:

      😆 all of the Jasun appearances on this site fall into that category 😀

    2. Greg Moffitt says:

      Ha ha, thanks! The work with Jasun just keeps going deeper.
