This week as been an absolute roller-coaster ride with Enlightenment City. To kick things off, Enlightenment City was hacked twice to intentionally disrupt our continual evolvement into higher consciousness. The website started flagging warnings all over the place. At first I was like "Wow, we must be growing really quickly to warrant the attention of a team of hackers." But then I realized that negative consciousness had just picked up their game in their continual effort to try and stop me. Enlightenment City still stands in just the same way that I still stand-- unwilling to bend. On the upside, I now have some fuel for a really great Blog post in the spirit of hackers. What a great way to integrate such a sensitive topic! So here we go, enter the world of cybernetic warfare!
I want to make mention that even though Enlightenment City was hacked, nothing was really achieved beyond the point of disruption. You may have seen a "This site has been suspended" warning notice from my web hosting provider, however that was just a temporary stall while they cleaned out my files. All your personal information is kept on a 3rd-party email subscription website called Aweber and remains safe and secure. It was not Anonymous who hacked me, just those who sought online retribution over my sanctuary. Beyond the temporary downtime, Enlightenment City is still going strong.
Some of you may have heard of the infamous hacking group called Anonymous who have created an extraordinary reputation of infiltrating high-priority targets and then notifying the public of their online endeavors through their website AnonNews.org. The group loosely formed in 2003 on one of the most notorious online forums 4chan. They took aboard particularly high profile hacks, targeting groups such as the Church of Scientology, the Westbaro Church, the US Government, the motion picture and recording industry over their anti-piracy claims, Paypal, Mastercard, Visa, Sony, and even online bullies and sexual predators. With every attack, their reputation soon built them into one of the most revolutionary groups on the planet today. "In 2012, Time called Anonymous one of the "100 most influential people" in the world." (Wikipedia: Gellman, Barton (April 18, 2012). "The 100 Most Influential People In The World". Time.)
The Pyramid Hierarchy
Coded within every major society is a revolutionary sub-strata that is allowed to be initiated as a way for the greater consciousness of that society to seek socially controlled mechanisms to rectify inherent problems that may arise as a course of its existence. Here on Earth our leadership paradigm is based off an Ancient Egyptian sub-strata whereby our leaders are controlling the greater masses through a set hierarchy on the presumption of power and greater effectiveness as a whole through maintenance of our servitude. We can label it anything we want; communism, democracy, religion, organizational management, but in the end of the day the only thing we have left is a conflicting leadership that concentrates on what it deems as significant-- these days translating as monetary gains, political power, or debt.
Think about the movement of society's energy as a pyramid hierarchy where energy is mostly created through the bottom 97% of population and feeds up to and concentrates around the top 3% the of population. The energy does not circle back down to the people at the bottom of the hierarchy, but instead accumulates around those controlling it. The bottom of the hierarchy completely supports the top of the hierarchy, yet see very little as a result of their efforts. Society functions by experiencing what we know as 9-5 working life. Controlling parties simply prioritize the energy flow of that society. Whether it is manufacturing, agriculture, finance, construction, commodities, white collar, blue collar, or any other form of business or industry, everything groups together to help society function. The 97% of the population functions the society, while the 3% make the decisions as to how. This way if the consciousness of a society is intended to be polarized one way or the other, the only ones needed to be targeted are the people controlling the rest. It's very effective, it's been around for 5000 years.
Please refer to the following infographic that represents the hierarchy energy flow of society.
The triangle represents our pyramid hierarchy of society's consciousness on the planet. The dotted blue lines on either side of the pyramid hierarchy represent the loss of energy as a result of death, the logging of forests, sourcing of food, or any deconstruction of renewable energy sources. New souls are born within the the middle of the society powerhouse directly through Universal consciousness. The large exterior arrows represent the flow of energy that the masses create in order to support society. Both arrows arch up towards the top of the hierarchy where the 3% controlling parties decide how that energy is to be utilized. Innovation, medicine, entrepreneurship, the mortality rate and the number of new born babies increase the size of the hierarchy as time allows it. Thus our leaky ship of a society slowly drifts on.
The Revolutionary sub-strata
When I say to the word "sub-strata" I am referring to the constructs that support a particular way society exists. The revolutionary sub-strata arises when the concentration of efforts by the the controlling 3% does not cover the needs of the society itself. It occurs as a result of the increasing consciousness of that society becoming more self-aware of the fact that they are not living within a perfect, or at least near-perfect, world. As time progresses, thought-forms within society eventually start forming as part of a collective understanding to enact change. The thought-form of Anonymous formed over the internet on an online forum 4chan. A revolutionary mindset was all that was needed in order to give life to their thought-form and activate the onsets for a new sub-strata. Social justice, inequality, anger against the controlling parties-- whatever their reason to initiate, it activated a revolutionary sub-strata that actually superseded the stratum of the pyramid hierarchy.
The reason I say a revolutionary sub-strata supersedes our existing system is because the Collective Unconscious is the true backbone of our consciousness. In my article The Revolutionary, I talk about how society subconsciously elects their leaders in order to lead them down a particular pathway of learning. If the leadership paradigm is somehow failing, then the consciousness of society acts to bring forth an element of change-- in this case Anonymous. If the Collective Unconscious activated Anonymous in order to create a revolutionary sub-strata, it was done so for a very specific reason.
The new sub-strata that Anonymous is creating is an independent system of social justice that fights for the rights of society, as opposed to the monetary, political, or power gains of the controlling 3%. It is displaying this by hacking into large-scale organizations, religions, and conflicting individuals, under a banner of anonymity in a similar style of tactics used in guerrilla warfare. They don't have a physical headquarters, nor is the location of their army known, they are organizing and effectively coordinating attacks from the realm of the online world-- the materialization of consciousness.
It is the absolute worst nightmare for any controlling party to suddenly have on their doorstep a superseding thought-form that has the ability to enact change. A hidden compartment that destabilizes the existing paradigm of elected leaders is often met with outright hostility. They will desperately try anything in their power to remove the afflicting thought-form, whether that be of benefit to society's consciousness or not.
A revolutionary group such as Anonymous can actually become legitimate with enough support, however the likelihood of such an event occurring is relatively small. Revolutions occur for a number of reasons; first and foremost to transcend a limiting or afflicting system and introduce a new, more beneficial construct for society to exist. Revolutions gain support from the masses, it would be impossible to lead a one man revolution without society inherently needing it to occur. Anonymous is acting as society's illegitimate counter-weight against the fine balancing act of our legal system. It is going against the law to try an enact a form of it's own justice where it sees gaps or otherwise corrupted legislation. Our legal system was nearly completely created as a controlling mechanism for the greater society as a whole, and it would be nearly useless to initiate a revolution within the bounds of the law as it wouldn't be achieving anything significant enough to set up a new sub-strata. Remember how I said that the whole point of the revolution was to rectify society's issues, well these issues would still be left unresolved if the revolution didn't rewrite the code in some way-- in other words it needs to break the law or be rendered ineffective. Our legal system is a deterrent towards revolutions; a recorded history of moral codes and disruptive behavior that maintains the normal functioning of the society. So in a way, a revolution gains legitimacy by growing to be powerful enough to not only code a new sub-strata, but actually have the ability to enforce those changes. That or become effective enough in their methods that the controlling parties have to recode the existing system to take into account the growing demands of society itself.
Legitimacy is a powerful and very lucrative objective. It would not just require the deconstruction of old constructs and systems, but also the ability to implement a new transcending system that would create the onsets of the revolutionary sub-strata taking effect for a future foundation. Some of the biggest criticisms of the Wikileaks online dump of confidential information as "public disclosure" was based around the fact that they didn't actually have a goal nor a relative plan beyond dealing as much damage to the reputation of the world's governments as possible. Wide-scale deconstruction, without a viable constructive follow-up, is as good as a short-lived revolution that will only serve to destabilize. Anonymous would very quickly garner wide-scale support for legitimacy if they moved to create a wide-scale implementation system to either adapt or update the flaws that society is currently facing.
Legitimacy through a new transcending system is in itself also quite difficult, mainly due to the globalization of the world with inter-connecting societal hierarchies, as well as a monetary system that is essentially used as a bargaining chip for the masses to expend their energy. Concepts such as Bitcoin opened the doorway as to how monetary systems may be transcended. Alternate currencies backed by ideologies rather than gold, it was a fascinating concept that sparked the world's interest. The irony was that the Bitcoin's online trading center Mt. Gox was soon targeted by hackers and caused artificial market slumps and spikes in prices to try and destabilize the currency. (See How Hackers Burst the Bitcoin Bubble) My money was on government hackers (the governments of the world served to benefit the most).
The collective group's biggest concern is how to stay invisible in a world that is constantly recording our every move. A group of individuals can turn illegal as soon as it takes parliament to pass laws making it so. It is an uphill battle as a revolutionary. The only way it can keep gaining momentum is if society keeps backing the revolutionary thought-form of societal freedom. The idea of legitimacy completely contradicts the ideals of what Anonymous is, and in some respects, the only thing holding Anonymous back is the fact that society can't get behind the original ghosts themselves, but rather the idea of the group going against the controlling parties. The Guy Fawks mask became famous as a revolutionary symbol from the movie V for Vendetta where Hugo Weaving performed V-- a freedom fighter who orchestrated a wide-scale revolution against their government. The masks have been worn around the world in such as in the Occupy Movement and protests for change in our legal/monetary system. The fact that there are signs of the impending revolution, makes the crossroads for the group at least slightly easier to pass.

Hacking has always been an interest of mine. Not from an illegal underworld of suspicious types stealing our banking information point of view, but rather fugitives of the mainstream breaking the rules that millions of others have to comply on a daily basis. In a world destined to keep digitizing itself with the advent of new and faster technologies, we are bound to see an increase of hackers starting at even younger ages. At first glance we might see an invisible criminal, at second glance we might even find individuals broken by society itself, trying to rectify the problems they see at hand. But I will tell you what we don't see until we really sit back and think about what is truly happening; cyber-revolutionaries pioneering a new format for society's consciousness to start remedying the flaws of ignorance. There is a certain element of rawness to them; like a really good steak that is crisp on the outside and rare in the middle. You learn to avoid overdone meat. Every so often you find something that sparks in interest in your mind, a light that shines so brilliantly that you can't stop thinking about it. A fresh steak so good that you start to crave it for its unique taste and texture. You already know that if it was aged ever so slightly more, it could be even better. Not always, but every so often enough that you start believing in humanity again.
We are never alone, not even if we were to stand in a room of complete darkness surrounded by nothing other than the blank space of time itself. Even then we would be standing within a crowded city whose confines so far outweigh the notions of Life and Death that we might as well just call existence the City of God. There is no such thing as Life and Death; there are only the perceived differences our soul takes aboard when it finds itself in a new environment. It would be impossible for the Universe to truly die and if we are the Universe then it is impossible for us to truly die. We seem to love to find beauty in that which most appeals to our senses in Life, but very few seem to find beauty in the sheer fact that we are alive right now. Life dampens the soul to such an extent that for some reason, we are calling worldly possessions beautiful for no other reason than for the continuation of our interest. Hundreds of lifetimes later we may still call upon the same lower vibratory senses to find meaning in our lives-- but with one minute difference. A very small difference, albeit a difference nonetheless. We are somehow slightly more attracted to the ethereal or that which we consider dead, that our meaning in life has got something more to it than for the attainment of material wealth, that there could possibly be a reason for why we are doing what we are doing. This small spark of interest, as ever so insignificant as it may be, marks one of the most important steps in our consciousness since we first incarnated into the Universe; a single moment of realization-- a step closer to our Higher Self.
Our Higher Self is a collective consciousness that sits within an ulterior Dimension to that which we may use to progress through our self-realization process. Think of it as a hot air balloon that floats above our lives far up in a much higher Dimension than what we are currently experiencing. Our Higher Self completely differentiates depending upon whether or not you are within the reincarnation system to achieve self-realization or for a much higher purpose. For the regular Universal inhabitant progressing through multiple lives on Earth to achieve their necessary realization, your Higher Self is actually a mirror image of what you progressed to in the 5th/6th Dimension in the last Universal Cycle. What this means is that your current Higher Self is in fact you in a couple thousand years from now. Though it is hard to imagine, you have already achieved Oneness through Enlightenment in the last Universal Cycle and you are now tracking your way back up to the top in a more proficient manner.
Your Higher Self acts as the coordinator for all of your lives within this Universe up until you reach the 5th/6th Dimension once again. It structures our lives for the most effective route for self-realization in order for us to reach the same point in consciousness that it currently sits within. The reason it personally structures our lives is that who better to coordinate our lives then our future selves who have already been through our lessons? We know ourselves better than anybody else in this Universe, and we therefore structure our reincarnation process through our own unique patterns for growth.
It is quite specifically rare for us to incarnate in a set linear format. For example, Life A 1922-1982 and Life B 2012-2082. We actually incarnate in an overlapping sequence with multiple lifetimes, where it is possible for one to start before the last one finishes. For example where a linear format would follow a neat birth and death time frame, layering lives allows for the maximum possible efficiency by allowing us to live through more incarnations over the same period of time; Life A 1922-1982, Life B 1942-2002, Life C 1982-2052, Life D 2012-2082, etc. Please refer to the following graph for a visual representation of how reincarnation layers our lives on top of each other.
Without a Higher Self dedicated into organizing our life streams, we would only be able to follow a linear format where one lifetime started directly after the last one. Our Higher Self acts to coordinate all of the information and lessons learned across multiple lifetimes into that of a singular consciousness. When our physical body dies, our consciousness is stream-lined with out Higher Self in an ongoing effort to better understand the current Universal changes and discrepancies and integrate the most up-to-date information into our future lives.
The previous graph shown above is highly conservative of the truth behind reality. What it doesn't take into account are the fact that some lifetimes are solely structured for a single realization, or even just to play a single part within the continual involvement of society's consciousness. We may be alive for a very short number of years, we may even waste entire lives for nothing better than for the attainment of material possessions. These kinds of small bursts of life completely disorganize the graph into a structural mess that gradually shows an incline in consciousness spreading over hundreds if not thousands of lifetimes. Please refer to the following graph of what layering our incarnations more accurately looks like.
In this second graph we can more accurately see how reincarnation is gradually progressing along the consciousness scale. All of the smaller lines represent shorter lives for the sole purposes of learning a particular lesson. These types of lives occur in volatile circumstances such as wars or environmental upheavals. The further along the graph we go, we eventually come across the remaining lifetimes where they start to space out a lot more and are generally longer than the others. This is because the higher in consciousness we attain, our Higher Self concentrates more energy into those very high realization lifetimes and we live longer and more fruitful lives in order to gain this experience. The last green line represents the singular lifetimes our Higher Self structures for no other reason than the importance placed on those later lives (old souls) achieving something spiritually significant. For example, my current incarnation is singular in perspective. I currently have no other incarnations on Earth, while if you were to look at a soul who just progressed out of the 2nd Dimension, their Higher Self would be incarnating multiple streams in order to maximize their effectiveness in a larger array of environmental circumstances.
The aim of our Higher Self is to get us to the exact same point of consciousness that it is currently sitting within. When we achieve Enlightenment, our current individual consciousness completes itself by merging with our Higher Self. In order for this statement to make sense, our current consciousness would firstly have to be an incomplete form of existence in order to justify why Enlightenment allows us to transcend our current system and cease the need for us to be here. We are a fragment of our Higher Self. This explains how and why we as human beings experience some form of Death. Fragments experience Life and Death every single day, where it is truly impossible for an original soul to die. We are conscious fragments interacting with our environment down here, and when our fragment dies we collate all of our experiences back with our Higher Self.
I have just stumbled across what may be one of the most controversial elements of human society. Laws were introduced based upon the premise that man does not have the necessary maturity and social function to maintain the equilibrium of existence within our current form of consciousness. We have strict laws on Earth that completely condemns the murder and manslaughter or any other form of unnatural or premeditated Death. If you were to contemplate what our Higher Self may feel when one of its fragments dies, it would be like asking Gaia if she cries when a tree in one of her forests dies. Our Higher Self incarnates thousands of lifetimes just in the 3rd Dimension alone, not even mentioning the 2nd Dimension of plants/animals/insects where tens of thousands of lives were justified for the sole purpose of Dimensional evolvement for that of a single soul. How many billions of lives were used to effectively create our current reality is beyond belief. If we lived in an Enlightened community, laws would become meaningless; not because we as Enlightened individuals could transcend them, but because there would truly be no authority to enforce a law that doesn't exist beyond the veils of human perception.
Please refer to the following graph that depicts the process of achieving realization to unify with our Higher Self to achieve Enlightenment.
Once our Higher Self allows us to achieve Enlightenment, we take aboard all of the memories and experiences of our past lives in that of a singular consciousness, and then move forwards with the weight of thousands of lifetimes creating the foundation of our spiritual maturity. Our Higher Self becomes nothing more than a completing element as part of our soul complex and we then progress forwards in a new state that does not require us to reincarnate in short bursts of lives, but instead take longer continuous streams of life in energetic form.
The true question remains as to what we even do as Universal Enlightened Beings who no longer need the system of reincarnation. Our Higher Self certainly finds interest in progressing us up to the point of realization. If our Soul is just a realizing fragment, it rises a thought as to the entire point of life if our Higher Self is already within an Enlightened State. The answer to this question lies within the very reason for why our Universe exists at all. We are all already manifestations of Unconditional Love floating within the most ecstatic fields of energy as God, yet here we are within a Universe-- going through the motions of daily life as an incomplete soul. The irony of the situation is perfectly encapsulated within the premise that all we have to do is completely realize what we are doing in order to wake up from our level of reality. We are finding Unconditional Love in trillions of ways for no other reason than our Creator is creating other Creators, because that is what Creators do. Our Higher Self simply exists because such a mechanism allows us to perform this function with greater clarity and more coherence than if a single soul was to try and track its way through the sea of consciousness without any guidance at all. It could just be that we are fascinated by the thousands of lives creating beauty and chaos in the most profoundly resonating corner of the Universe.
Every single answer short of the ultimate truth is by far more beautiful and much more personally satisfying to the humble Universal inhabitant. Some of us were born to live while others were born to die. We progress through the Galaxies as glowing lights within the Universe, interacting with each other in hopes of one day remembering who we are. We will achieve our Enlightenment in the most fascinating and unusual way; re-traceable a completely accountable for when the new Universal cycle begins once again. Even Enlightened as we may be, the power of the Universe still draws us in and captures our imagination for another spiritual journey. The Universe is indeed the home of the incomplete soul.
