“…THEY’VE BUILT THEIR OWN PRISON…”

MY DINNER WITH ANDRE is a 1981 film starring Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn, written by Gregory and Shawn, and directed by Louis Malle, depicting a conversation between Gregory and Shawn (not necessarily playing themselves) in a chic restaurant in New York City. Based mostly on conversation, the film’s dialogue covers such things as experimental theatre, the nature of theatre, and the nature of life, contrasting Shawn’s modest, down-to-earth humanism with Gregory’s extravagant spiritual experiences.

TEXT ANNOTATIONS FROM THE SEGMENT OF THE FILM ABOVE:

“I mean, things don’t affect people the way they used to.
I mean, it may very well be that 1 0 years from now…
people will pay $1 0,000 in cash to be castrated…
just in order to be affected by something.
Well, why-why do you think that is? I mean, why is that?
I mean, is it just because people are lazy today, or they’re bored?
I mean, are we just like bored, spoiled children…
who’ve just been lying in the bathtub all day…
just playing with their plastic duck…
and now they’re just thinking, ”Well, what can I do?”
Okay. Yes. We’re bored.
We’re all bored now.
But has it every occurred to you, Wally, that the process…
that creates this boredom that we see in the world now…
may very well be a self-perpetuating, unconscious form of brainwashing…
created by a world totalitarian government based on money…
and that all of this is much more dangerous than one thinks…
and it’s not just a question of individual survival, Wally…
but that somebody who’s bored is asleep…
and somebody who’s asleep will not say no?
See, I keep meeting these people – I mean, uh,just a few days ago…
I met this man whom I greatly admire.
He’s a Swedish physicist. Gustav Bjornstrand.
And he told me that he no longer watches television…
he doesn’t read newspapers, and he doesn’t read magazines.
He’s completely cut them out of his life…
because he really does feel that we’re living in some kind of Orwellian nightmare now…
and that everything that you hear now contributes to turning you into a robot.
And when I was at Findhorn, I met this extraordinary English tree expert…
who had devoted his life to saving trees.
Just got back from Washington, lobbying to save the redwoods.
He’s 84 years old, and he always travels with a backpack…
’cause he never knows where he’s gonna be tomorrow.
And when I met him at Findhorn, he said to me, ”Where are you from?”
I said, ”New York.” He said, ”Ah, New York. Yes, that’s a very interesting place.
Do you know a lot of New Yorkers who keep talking about the fact that they want to leave, but never do?”
And I said, ”Oh, yes.” And he said, ”Why do you think they don’t leave?”
I gave him different banal theories. He said, ”Oh, I don’t think it’s that way at all.”
He said, ”I think that New York is the new model for the new concentration camp…
”where the camp has been built by the inmates themselves…
”and the inmates are the guards, and they have this pride in this thing they’ve built.
”They’ve built their own prison.
”And so they exist in a state of schizophrenia…
”where they are both guards and prisoners.
”And as a result, they no longer have – having been lobotomized –
”the capacity to leave the prison they’ve made…
or to even see it as a prison.”
And then he went into his pocket, and he took out a seed for a tree…
and he said, ”This is a pine tree.”
He put it in my hand and he said, ”Escape before it’s too late.”
See, actually, for two or three years now…
Chiquita and I have had this very unpleasant feeling that we really should get out.
We really feel like Jews in Germany in the late ’30s.
Get out of here.
Of course, the problem is where to go.
‘Cause it seems quite obvious that the whole world is going in the same direction.
See, I think it’s quite possible that the 1 960s…
represented the last burst of the human being before he was extinguished…
and that this is the beginning of the rest of the future, now…
and that from now on there’ll simply be all these robots walking around…
feeling nothing, thinking nothing.
And there’ll be nobody left almost to remind them…
that there once was a species called a human being…
with feelings and thoughts…
and that history and memory are right now being erased…
and soon nobody will really remember…
that life existed on the planet.
Now, of course, Bjornstrand feels that there’s really almost no hope…
and that we’re probably going back to a very savage…
lawless, terrifying period.
Findhorn people see it a little differently.
They’re feeling that there’ll be these pockets of light…
springing up in different parts of the world…
and that these will be, in a way, invisible planets on this planet…
and that as we, or the world, grow colder…
we can take invisible space journeys to these different planets…
refuel for what it is we need to do on the planet itself…
and come back.
And it’s their feeling that there have to be centers now…
where people can come and reconstruct a new future for the world.
And when I was talking to, uh, Gustav Bjornstrand…
he was saying that actually these centers are growing up everywhere now…
and that what they’re trying to do, which is what Findhorn was trying to do…
and, in a way, what I was trying to do –
I mean, these things can’t be given names…
but in a way, these are all attempts at creating a new kind of school…
or a new kind of monastery.
And Bjornstrand talks about the concept of”reserves” –
islands of safety where history can be remembered…
and the human being can continue to function…
in order to maintain the species through a dark age.
In other words, we’re talking about an underground…
which did exist in a different way during the Dark Ages…
among the mystical orders of the church.
And the purpose of this underground…
is to find out how to preserve the light, life, the culture…
how to keep things living.
You see, I keep thinking that what we need…
is a new language –
a language of the heart…
a language, as in the Polish forest, where language wasn’t needed.
Some kind of language between people that is a new kind of poetry…
that’s the poetry of the dancing bee that tells us where the honey is.
And I think that in order to create that language…
you’re going to have to learn how you can go through a looking glass…
into another kind of perception…
where you have that sense of being united to all things…
and suddenly you understand everything.”

EXPEDIENCY

ALIEN INTERVIEW“A priesthood, or prison guards, were used to help reinforce the idea that an individual is only a biological body and is not an Immortal Spiritual Being.  The individual has no identity.  The individuals have no past lives.  The individual has no power.  Only the gods have power.  And, the gods are a contrivance of the priests who intercede between men and the gods they serve.  Men are slaves to the dictates of the priests who threaten eternal spiritual punishment if men do not obey them. What else would one expect on a prison planet where all prisoners have amnesia, and the priests themselves are prisoners?”

“Anyone who is not willing or able to submit to mindless  economic, political and religious servitude as a tax-paying worker in the class system of the “Old Empire” are “untouchable” and sentenced to receive memory wipe-out and permanent imprisonment on Earth.”

‘It is my personal belief that the truth should not be sacrificed on the altar of political, religious or economic expediency.”

THEY DON’T REALLY CARE ABOUT US

Freedom Fighters: Gandhi, Lincoln, MLK and JFK, Lennon and the latest victim of prison planet assassination, Michael Jackson. He told it like it is in the video below:  “All I want to say is they don’t really care about us“. We may be in prison, but we can always fight back and try to escape!  The visual images in this Michael Jackson video aren’t pretty…. but neither is the reality of living on a prison planet run by banksters and gangsters! Factually, “they” really don’t care about anything but Money, Power and Controlling You!

“They Don’t Care About Us” — Lyrics

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad!
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about usBeat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white meAll I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about usTell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
You’re rapin’ me of my pride
Oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…
Set me freeSkin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Black male, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Is Our Universe A Computer Simulation?

COMPUVERSEfrom Huffington Post UK  |  By Michael Rundle —

“Physicists say they may have evidence that the universe is a computer simulation.  How? They made a computer simulation of the universe. And it looks sort of like us.

A  long-proposed thought experiment, put forward by both philosophers and popular culture, points out that any civilization of sufficient size and intelligence would eventually create a simulation universe if such a thing were possible.

And since there would therefore be many more simulations (within simulations, within simulations) than real universes, it is therefore more likely than not that our world is artificial.

Now a team of researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany led by Silas Beane say they have evidence this may be true.

In a paper named ‘Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation’, they point out that current simulations of the universe – which do exist, but which are extremely weak and small – naturally put limits on physical laws.

Technology Review explains that “the problem with all simulations is that the laws of physics, which appear continuous, have to be superimposed onto a discrete three dimensional lattice which advances in steps of time.”compuplanet

What that basically means is that by just being a simulation, the computer would put limits on, for instance, the energy that particles can have within the program.

These limits would be experienced by those living within the sim – and as it turns out, something which looks just like these limits do in fact exist.

For instance, something known as the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin, or GZK cut off, is an apparent boundary of the energy that cosmic ray particles can have. This is caused by interaction with cosmic background radiation. But Beane and co’s paper argues that the pattern of this rule mirrors what you might expect from a computer simulation.

COMPUPRISONNaturally, at this point the science becomes pretty tricky to wade through – and we would advise you read the paper itself to try and get the full detail of the idea.

But the basic impression is an intriguing one. Like a prisoner in a pitch-black cell, we may never be able to see the ‘walls’ of our prison — but through physics we may be able to reach out and touch them.”

BARRIERSMohandas Karamchand Gandhi (; 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of Indian independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.  The term Indian Independence Movement encompasses activities and ideas aiming to end first the company rule (East India Company), and then the rule of the British.

Mohandas Gandhi’s storied history of resistance included many stints in jail, starting with a two-month imprisonment in 1907 in South Africa, where he was working to end discrimination against Indians living there. He was arrested for urging them to ignore a law requiring Indians to be registered and fingerprinted. While in jail, Gandhi read Henry David Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”, which would become a major part of his philosophy upon his return to India. Back in his home country, Gandhi was put behind bars several times for his movement to end British rule. In 1922 he was tried for the last time by the British government for “bringing or attempting to excite disaffection towards His Majesty’s Government established by law in British India.” He pleaded guilty to all charges and was sentenced to six years, of which he served two before being released for an emergency appendectomy. India achieved independence on Aug. 15, 1947, five months before Gandhi was assassinated.

Gandhi preached rebellion, launched mass civil disobedience and was repeatedly jailed. When arrested, he pleaded guilty and asked for the severest punishment. In South Africa, the charge against him and his co-workers was proved by witnesses furnished by him. The horror, shame and hardship of jail life, originally a punishment allotted to criminals, scared the Indians. Gandhi removed this fear from their hearts. He was jailed eleven times. Once he was arrested three times within four days. If he had to complete all his jail terms, he would have spent 11 years and 19 days in jail. Occasionally his punishment was reduced and and he altogether spent 6 years and 10 months in prison. At the age of 39, he first entered a jail. He came out of the prison gates for the last time when he was 75.

On 14 and 15 August 1947 the Indian Independence Act was invoked.
