    Default Constance's empowerment portal

    I want to dedicate this thread to all the video's, articles and thoughts that have educated, empowered, inspired, nurtured and nourished my soul.

    What sets your soul on fire might be completely different for you and I honour that completely. If you see a video or a comment that you don't agree with, I only ask that you consider that my only aim, intent and purpose for this thread is to share what has personally kept me in a state of flow and growth and to share this with you.

    Some of these videos may already have been shared on Avalon previously by others. Thanks to all that have shared over the years because you have (whether you have known it or not) helped light my path.

    Edited to Add: If anything I have shared has inspired you, please feel free to build upon any inspirations you may have here, for in doing so, all will benefit.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This is the most recent educational video I've watched.

    Richard Grannon made this video back in 2019 but when I listened to this, bam! it got my attention.

    Richard refers to what he believes is going on at the moment. He starts by referring to the Alice in Wonderland technique

    Video timestamps:

    0:00 - Alice In Wonderland Technique
    4:48 - Aren't We All Having The Alice In Wonderland Technique Used On Us?
    10:27 - Who Is The Target?
    15:04 - Are You Here Because Of Yourself?
    19:18 - How Do We Actually Live?


    Q&A Section
    23:31 - I Talked About AI And I Saw Wild Stuff In My Feed
    24:42 - What Do You Do When You Are Subjected To The Technique?
    29:13 - Do You Question Your Own State Paranoia At Your Door?

    Whenever we pursue to the nth degree whatever we are passionate about, we will come to learn and master it. All learning is self-learning.

    Here is a great little experiment that Sugata Mitra carried out in a series of real-life experiments with kids.

    Howard Gardner Discusses Multiple Intelligences - insightful and expansive. There are nine areas of intelligence to consider in this presentation.

    There are actually more intelligences to be considered but that will all be covered in later posts by another video presentation.

    This presentation explains why and how some of us are more adept in some areas than others and also provides a clue as to how we might go about rounding out our lives.

    This is a very long video (6 hours) but well worth the listen. I downloaded it so that I could listen to it at any time.

    This is practical, powerful and has immediate effects.

    This is a delightful video showcasing the inventions of Harold Bates. He ran his car (amongst other things) on methane.
    It is astonishing what can happen when we create from our hearts! This is improvisation at its finest.

    Default Re: Constance's Empowerment Portal - Share Your Inspirations Here

    A Mods' Announcement:

    This is a new thread, originally created by having moved a bunch of posts in reply to Constance's very own Constance's Empowerment Portal.

    The reason we did this (having consulted Constance herself) was simply to keep that thread 100% for Constance's empowerment posts only. So we've adjusted things so that only she can now post there.

    This isn't to diminish anyone's valuable, high quality replies, all of which are now here. It's simply so as not to dilute the thread. There was always the risk that Constance's own posts might be at least a little lost among a possible flood of discussion from others.

    Constance wants to sincerely thank everyone for their support, feedback, and comments.
    That's important. She understands (as do we) that this thread-split makes replying to specific posts a little cumbersome, but we do think it's for the best.

    If it turns out somehow not to be the best thing, we can always adjust things again, as it's a new forum experiment. We've never done this before — for anyone, ever!

    But Constance's personal empowerment archive is so exceptional, and she herself is so exceptional in how much she always gives to everyone around her, that we do think this is the very best thing to do.

    Quote Posted by Constance (here)
    I want to dedicate this thread to all the video's, articles and thoughts that have educated, empowered, inspired, nurtured and nourished my soul.

    This is the most recent educational video I've watched.

    Richard Grannon made this video back in 2019 but when I listened to this, bam! it got my attention.
    Richard refers to what he believes is going on at the moment. He starts by referring to the Alice in Wonderland technique
    Great thread, Constance.
    I posted a shorter version on the Here and Now thread, with a shout-out to onawah for her post.

    Here's a short intro and a review by Alexandra Bruce of Forbidden Knowledge:

    Richard Grannon:
    “Hopefully, these thoughts will help you assert your cognitive boundaries and will help you to insulate yourself to a some degree during the storm."

    “If you’re going to do something naughty, I don’t think you can get away with it in the same way anymore. So what do you do? You level up. You go meta-, instead of trying to deceive people and work behind their backs, as to what it is you’re really doing, it’s way more efficient to just confuse them about what’s right and what’s wrong. Cognitive dissonance, nobody knows right from wrong. The really clever thing that they’ve done, the evil thing that they’ve done is the slow encroachment of the boundaries.”
    The CIA did this - Alice in Wonderland Technique (10 min)



    Reviewed by Alexandra Bruce of Forbidden Knowledge

    ALICE IN WONDERLAND TECHNIQUE: THE POWER OF APPLIED CONFUSION

    May 24, 2020
    [article & hyper links]
    "On May 12th, Anthony Fauci testified before the Senate that reopening the economy too quickly could lead to “suffering and death that could be avoided [that] could even set you back on the road to…economic recovery.”

    On May 23rd, Anthony Fauci appeared to reverse course when he told CNBC that the stay-at-home orders could end up causing “irreparable damage” and “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go.”

    This about-face triggered tweets of exasperation. Then I saw Amazing Polly’s tweet that what Fauci did was an example of the “Alice in Wonderland Technique”.

    I’ve heard of Alice in Wonderland – but a technique by that name? This sent me down a rabbit hole for which I’m grateful, because for the past three years, I’ve been talking about the “psychological civil war” being waged against us, not knowing that the orchestrated gaslighting we’ve been subjected to is a scaled-up version of what was originally developed as an interrogation technique.

    In other words, what we’ve been being put through is literally torture and the technique described in “Alice in Wonderland: The Power of Applied Confusion”, a chapter starting on page 129 of a manual entitled, ‘EDUCING INFORMATION – Interrogation: Science and Art’, published by the National Defense Intelligence College in 2006, citing a 1963 torture manual entitled, “KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual, Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual,” based on CIA research, much of it conducted through the MK ULTRA program but some of it going all the way back to the 1350s, to the work of Nicholas Eymerich, Inquisitor General of Aragon, Spain.

    In this video, Richard Grannon does a good job explaining the details of this torture technique that I feel could help us to cope with the madness of COVID-19. When we know that it’s called Alice in Wonderland and that it incorporates Gregory Bateson’s double-bind theory of Schizophrenia, scaled-up to the level of a global psyop, it can help us release ourselves from its thrall.
    Grannon explains:
    “You bring the person to be interrogated into the room, and you have the three interrogators immediately to start to badger them…with nonsensical questions. The pitch and the tone and the pacing of their questions will not match the subjects which they’re covering. Often times, the subjects that they’re asking the person being interrogated about are nonsensical. They go nowhere, they mean nothing.

    “The purpose stated in the interrogation technique is not just to obliterate the normal. The purpose is also to replace that which is normal, with the mindbogglingly bizarre. So the person goes into a state of deep trauma that is so awful, they would rather give up their secrets and return to a reality that makes sense, than have to continue with more days [of this]. It takes days for them to crack, usually.”

    To me, this describes the antics seen in the unrelenting #FakeNews, the Mueller Investigation and the fake impeachment, concomitant with things like #MeToo and the transgender putsch that have become the themes of this era.

    Christine Blasey Ford, Jussie Smollett and the media crucifixion of Nick Sandmann were illogical orchestrated psyops designed to badger everyone into agreement, in order to just make it stop.

    We’ve known that this was unconventional warfare but knowing that it’s called the Alice in Wonderland technique empowers you to identify it when it’s happening, to help you distance yourself from the fragmentation that it is attempting to induce.

    Grannon likens the psyop currently being unleashed upon the global populace (he recorded this last October) to 9/11, which he believes would be much harder to pull off today, with so many people carrying smartphones at all times.

    He says, “If you’re going to do something naughty, I don’t think you can get away with it in the same way anymore. So what do you do? You level up. You go meta-, instead of trying to deceive people and work behind their backs, as to what it is you’re really doing, it’s way more efficient to just confuse them about what’s right and what’s wrong. Cognitive dissonance, nobody knows right from wrong. The really clever thing that they’ve done, the evil thing that they’ve done is the slow encroachment of the boundaries.”

    Hopefully, these thoughts will help you assert your cognitive boundaries and will help you to insulate yourself to a some degree during the storm."

    Great thread, Constance.

    I posted a shorter version on the Here and Now thread, with a shout-out to onawah for her post.

    Here's a short intro and a review by Alexandra Bruce of Forbidden Knowledge:

    Richard Grannon:
    “Hopefully, these thoughts will help you assert your cognitive boundaries and will help you to insulate yourself to a some degree during the storm."

    “If you’re going to do something naughty, I don’t think you can get away with it in the same way anymore. So what do you do? You level up. You go meta-, instead of trying to deceive people and work behind their backs, as to what it is you’re really doing, it’s way more efficient to just confuse them about what’s right and what’s wrong. Cognitive dissonance, nobody knows right from wrong. The really clever thing that they’ve done, the evil thing that they’ve done is the slow encroachment of the boundaries.”

    ALICE IN WONDERLAND TECHNIQUE: THE POWER OF APPLIED CONFUSION

    May 24, 2020
    [article & hyper links]
    "On May 12th, Anthony Fauci testified before the Senate that reopening the economy too quickly could lead to “suffering and death that could be avoided [that] could even set you back on the road to…economic recovery.”

    On May 23rd, Anthony Fauci appeared to reverse course when he told CNBC that the stay-at-home orders could end up causing “irreparable damage” and “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go.”

    This about-face triggered tweets of exasperation. Then I saw Amazing Polly’s tweet that what Fauci did was an example of the “Alice in Wonderland Technique”.

    I’ve heard of Alice in Wonderland – but a technique by that name? This sent me down a rabbit hole for which I’m grateful, because for the past three years, I’ve been talking about the “psychological civil war” being waged against us, not knowing that the orchestrated gaslighting we’ve been subjected to is a scaled-up version of what was originally developed as an interrogation technique.

    In other words, what we’ve been being put through is literally torture and the technique described in “Alice in Wonderland: The Power of Applied Confusion”, a chapter starting on page 129 of a manual entitled, ‘EDUCING INFORMATION – Interrogation: Science and Art’, published by the National Defense Intelligence College in 2006, citing a 1963 torture manual entitled, “KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual, Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual,” based on CIA research, much of it conducted through the MK ULTRA program but some of it going all the way back to the 1350s, to the work of Nicholas Eymerich, Inquisitor General of Aragon, Spain.

    In this video, Richard Grannon does a good job explaining the details of this torture technique that I feel could help us to cope with the madness of COVID-19. When we know that it’s called Alice in Wonderland and that it incorporates Gregory Bateson’s double-bind theory of Schizophrenia, scaled-up to the level of a global psyop, it can help us release ourselves from its thrall.

    Thanks for that Paula I hadn't seen it!! I tend to mostly mind my own business at the moment unless something comes my way, or I am supporting someone in living their highest truth.

    Some of you who know me, would know that I live in an eco-village. I'm completely grateful for all that I've had, all that I currently have and all that is still to come my way. I embrace all the different and quirky and alternative ways that we can possibly live. My dream is to live in a true community where we are living and sharing in the common passion.

    I started a thread called "Natural homes" a little while ago now. If you love the idea of living naturally, please feel free to contribute to it.

    Here is something that greatly interests me. Why are some people geniuses and others not? We have a whole cosmos inside of our heads so if not, why not? How can we become our own genuises? What if it has to do with our state of being?


    The Neuroscience of Genius, Creativity, and Improvisation, with Heather Berlin

    The transcript...
    Carl Zimmer: Hi, I’m Carl Zimmer, a columnist for The New York Times and I’m in conversation with Heather Berlin, a neuroscientist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. So Heather, I mean genius is this word that we all use but I am really curious what people like you think about the word.

    Heather Berlin: Yeah, I guess well, I mean I can describe it looking through my lens as a neuroscientist. I mean I think just the word genius is a really all-encompassing term and what we try to do is kind of break it down to the constituent parts and try to understand the neural mechanisms that drive those things.

    So, for example, I think a really big part of what it means to be a genius is to have a great deal of creative or like novel thinking. Making these novel associations between ideas. Having a lot of pattern detection. So it’s not just about collecting a bunch of data and knowing a lot of facts but it’s making these novel connections between ideas.

    And I think what we want to look at is, for example, what is the neural correlate of something like divergent thinking or thinking outside the box, having novel associations between ideas. And that’s the kind of thing that we can begin to measure.

    Carl Zimmer: So how can you measure something like that?

    Heather Berlin: So it’s been actually quite a problem how to quantify this not just genius but let’s say creativity. We’re breaking it down – particularly what I’m interested in is improvisation. So when people are being spontaneously creative.

    Carl Zimmer: Why is that important to you? What does that get at?

    Heather Berlin: So I think that a lot of what’s happening in the brain is happening outside of awareness and we – when we have our sort of conscious brain highly active it’s kind of suppressing a lot of what’s going on outside of oneself. Sometimes when people are being creative they say it almost feels like things are coming from outside of them when they’re in this sort of flow state.

    And we’re starting to understand a little bit more about that state and it seems to be that when people are being creative in the moment that the part of their brain that has to do with their sense of self, self-awareness, self-consciousness is turned down. It’s called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.

    Carl Zimmer: Where is that?

    Heather Berlin: It’s sort of like right here. It’s part of the prefrontal cortex on the lateral side.

    Carl Zimmer: So you can actually see that change? Like the activity in there is changing in these kinds of situations?

    Heather Berlin: Yeah, so for example there’s been a few studies and we’re doing a new one now but in the studies all seem to show that, for example, when a jazz musician is improvising compared to when he does a memorized piece or even a rapper when he’s doing a freestyle rap compared to doing a memorized rap there’s a similar pattern of activation across the improvising rappers and the improvising jazz musicians. And they have a decreased activation in that dorsolateral prefrontal cortex which has to do with self-awareness, monitoring your ongoing behavior and making sort conforms with social norms.

    But they have also increased activation in a part of the brain called the medial prefrontal cortex which is sort of like right here if you go straight back a little bit. And that is turned up and that has to do with the internal generation of ideas. It’s coming from within. It’s stimulus independent.

    So if you think of this state you’re having this sort of free flow of unfiltered information coming from within that’s not being inhibited by that dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. You don’t have to worry about how do people think about me.

    And that free flow of information allows for the novel associations to be made. If you think about a similar pattern of brain activation happens during dreams or during daydreaming or some types of meditation or hypnosis where you lose your sense of self and time and place. And it allows the filter to come off so that novel associations are okay, you know. Dreams don’t all make sense. That’s where the creativity comes in. So that’s why I’m interested in that state to see what happens in people when they’re in that state because I think that’s a big part of what is involved with genius.

    Carl Zimmer: So I’m picturing like someone in a scanner rapping. And it’s hard to picture. So I mean what does this look like? I mean how do you – these experiments are so difficult to set up. You’ve figured something out so how does it work?

    Heather Berlin: Yeah, so what we’re doing is – and again it’s hard to make something ecologically valid or sort of simulate what it’s like in the real world when you’re lying in this, you know, tube and there’s this big clicking sound. So what it is is so there’s a loud clicking noise in the scanner and we picked a beat that matches the clicking beat in the scanner, you know, so that it’s not distracting. And what we do is in one condition we have them do a memorized rap. And there was a similar study that was done by another group and a small group of rappers but we’ve kind of elaborated on that. And in the improvised state we have – we show them random images and they have to improvise and incorporate those images into their rap in real time and we’re giving them real time audience feedback.

    So we’re having other professional rappers with a dial going up or down. Because that’s part of the real world situation. When you’re improvising it’s about audience feedback whether it’s comedy improv, theater improv. And we want to see how that feedback affects their sort of creativity.

    Carl Zimmer: But how does that feedback in other people, being aware of other people listening to you – how does that connect with your ideas about how these circuits that are involved with the self are coming down when you’re being creative?
    I mean I would think like, you know, if you’re in that flow state you could be performing in front of an empty room because you’re just all – it’s all about what’s coming from within.

    Heather Berlin: Yeah, so what we think is – so there’s something called the default mode network. And that seems to be sort of active. It’s sort of a neurocircuit of the brain that’s active when your focus of attention is internal.

    So when they’re in a kind of flow state we see activation of the default mode network. But what we think is that there’s occasionally this – they have to monitor the environment seeing, you know, how am I doing? So then they’ll switch into what’s called the executive network which is looking externally and sort of monitoring the behavior.

    Carl Zimmer: So a different circuit of neurons we’re talking about?

    Heather Berlin: Yeah.

    Carl Zimmer: We’re sort of flipping back and forth.

    Heather Berlin: Yeah, between these two sort of internally focused and generating new ideas and externally focused kind of to monitor your situation. Because if you think about it when – if you just are having a random flow it’s not like a jazz musician is just playing random notes or a rapper is just saying random words. It has to make sense, you know. It has to be kind of have a certain appeal. And so you do have to monitor at some level. If it’s just like a dream state – although it’s getting at that novel thinking it’s not necessarily being creative because just random thoughts with making no sense isn’t really what we’re looking for either.

    So there’s that switching back and forth between the two networks.

    Through dance, this man was able to overcome a very severe case of dystonia. When we put back what is missing from our lives, we can become whole again and return to our natural state of being.
