Yesterday’s post pointed to the sudden emergence into the mainstream press of the Qanon phenomenon. And, in this internet age, of course, with a twist, one which turns its meaning inside out, upside down. We hear now about Q on the MSM media (I hear 65 articles using the same language and attitude in 24 hours!) as ridiculous, a conspiracy, fake news!
Q as fake news. Get that? Let that little so-called factoid, or conclusion drawn from, basically, an emotional reaction, ruffle your feathers. On the contrary: If you are a “deplorable” (HRC’s term, remember?), then actually, it didn’t ruffle your feathers; in fact, that the MSM now officially, and unanimously hates Q is not only perhaps the best argument for its possible veracity, but for our questioning (thanks to Q) of so-called “reality” of what is constantly being fed to us to “shape the narrative” by the MSM.

Full visibility has many advantages.
Right on schedule.
Full visibility means, basically, most of the people who are interested in and can read about the world beyond their noses, and do, in this country. Yes, that’s most people. Even my friends with whom I have stayed silent (see last post). Qanon is out of the bag, folks, and “God only knows” what happens next.
Interesting that today I would disocver a new “scientific” report claiming that when 25% of a group adopts a new social norm, then the entire group adopts it. True? Whatever the percentage, this, what Rupert Sheldrake named the morphic resonance (or morphogenetic) field phenomenon, does appear to be real.
This idea, that our perception and our action are driven, not empirically, by the gradually amassing of atomized data, but rather by placing any amount of data into certain perceptual fields, is not new. You might say that it started with Immanuel Kant, who declared that we don’t see the world directly, but rather, “darkly,” through innate forms (or frameworks) of Space and Time. In other words, according to Kant, it’s as if we see the world through a set of glasses with a certain perscription, only we don’t realize we have the glasses on.
Kant thought these frameworks innate; I would argue that they are learned, and can thus be changed.
All through my graduate school studies in philosophy, I was fascinated with this framework idea, and, post-Kant, of evolving perceptual fields, ala, for example, Thomas Kuhn, who, in 1962, first broached the idea that scientific revolutions occur by means of a “paradigm shift,” wherein suddenly, or gradually, a new generation of scientists begins to see the entire world differently, no longer, in his example, through the lens of Newton, but of Einstein. And that this wasn’t a “logical” shift — not a deductive or inductive series of steps that led predictably and inexorably in one direction, but rather: all of a sudden, everything unexpectedly changed, and scientists started to see the world in a brand new manner.
Gestalt psychology also picked up on this idea, that masses of data are organized into forms (frameworks) by the mind. That those forms are not there in the outside world, but imposed on the world through human perception. Or, maybe I should say, are created in the world through our perceptions. We are creative agents, and, if quantum theory is to be trusted, then each tiny quantum particle doesn’t even exist until it’s perceived. The very act of perception brings it into form.
Back in 1982, Ken Keyes published a book that quickly became all the rage in New Age circles. Called The Hundredth Monkey, it claimed to show how social change comes about, suddenly, and seemingly miraculously, across vast distances, once enough — monkeys in this case — change their behavior. True? Possibly, though not proven. But the idea remains, and many implications flow.
Read this post all the way through, to get the flavor of how Keyes’ book can be interpreted in various ways, all of them interesting, and reminiscent of the ideas and authors presented here.
In the year 2000 Malcolm Gladwell published a book that also quickly became a phenomenon, The Tipping Point: How Little things Can Make A Big Difference.
Viewing from the vantage point of 18 years past the millennial shift, and the rise of the internet and social media, the book feels almost antiquated, and seems to be utilized mostly as a marketing tool. Check out goodreads reviews for this book.
Okay, then there’s the Q phenomenon, and placed in context of all the above, have we now reached a real tipping point?
This Qanon post from today makes me think so.
There is a reason why we needed to go mainstream prior to the EVIDENCE being dropped.
You have more than you know.
THERE’S A REASON WHY WE NEEDED TO GO MAINSTREAM PRIOR TO THE EVIDENCE BEING DROPPED. YOU HAVE MORE THAN YOU KNOW.
Does this “evidence” refer to the HRC server? The unredacted FISA memo? Pedogate? Satanism? Bribery and blackmail?
Who knows. Perhaps all the above and more.
It’s about time. Whatever you want to call it — a changed atmospheric field phenomenon may be about to reorganize voluminous data in a way that will pop in brand new meaning for all of those who have been waking up, slowly or suddenly, all these decades, years, and now nine months (Q), faster and faster, to weeks, days, hours . . .
