Un-Wash Your Mind
I’ve been disassociated from trust in government(s), the medical establishment, amongst other alleged authoritative spewers of lies and promises in exchange for votes for years, now. The writer of Everything Is Clear From Up Here relates his journey of disassociation from the lies, and his story will, in all likelihood, resonate with your own story of freeing your mind from the litany of lies you’ve been fed your entire life.
This process begins with the willingness to consciously open one’s mind and dispense with reinforced biases, question long held beliefs, extricate one’s digital presence from algorithmic echo chambers, refuse to freeze when shocked by the horror of new information which often leads to a retreat to the safety and security of old or popular beliefs wrapped in warm delusions. Once that retreat is rejected, one must question their beliefs a third and fourth time and recognize errors where they exist until those old beliefs no longer interfere with processing new information. It’s a lonely process, that requires accepting a devastating loneliness that inevitably follows. Call it a cognitive behavioral procedure of un-washing one’s brain that is so constantly bombarded with lies and propaganda it often cannot distinguish the line between healthy skepticism and bug house paranoia.
