Notes on Exit From The Matrix

Notes on Exit From The Matrix

by Jon Rappoport

February 13, 2017

These are notes I made in preparation for my collection Exit From The Matrix:

“New space and time appear when a person contemplates doing something he really wants to do.”

“The greatest thing in the world is doing what you really want to do. Once you start, all sorts of implications and ripples and consequences develop. You even begin to imagine new branches on that tree. The tree gets bigger. There are no limits.”

“The self plus imagination plus commitment to action is a force that, in the long run, can never be defeated.”

“What is a goal? It’s really doing more and more of what you want to do. How you organize it and define it are secondary.”

“Everybody knows that time changes when you’re absorbed in doing what you really want to do. But how many people realize that’s a revision of time itself? Time is a function of doing what you want to do.”

“Finding a new goal, a new direction isn’t all that hard. Committing to it and acting on it is a different matter. If you want to achieve the goal, think of the alternative: doing nothing. Acting on a new goal has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection as a prerequisite is a waste of time. It’s also likely to be just one more way of postponing action.”

“Goals don’t have to be described with exact clarity at the outset. As you take action, things will become clearer, things will develop. For example, if your goal is to write, then write. Later on, you can decide what kind of writing you want to do. You may discover you want to do five different kinds of writing.”

“When a person has a problem, the question is, in what context does the problem exist? If there is no context, then the person has lost sight of what he wants to do in life.”

“Knowing what you want to do, and doing it, creates a perspective from which problems are manageable.”

“I’ve known people who have swung into action on a goal…and then later, in the midst of their action, they discovered a larger purpose. If they weren’t taking action, they never would have discovered the new purpose.”

“What holds a person back? He perceives he has a problem. But he has no larger context in which he can view the problem.”

“Does a person want to get ahead and advance along a certain line or doesn’t he? If not, he’s in a muddle. The muddle looks like a problem. He produces excuses. The answer is always reaching out into the world with action. His imagination is telling him that all the time, but he isn’t listening.”

“Why do people give up? Because they want to.”

“Why do people strive to create something they desire in the world? Because they want to.”

“Why do people occupy a middle ground between these two choices? Because they want to.”

“Fortunately, a person can change his mind about what he wants. And then, in a second, everything changes. Imagination is the key. He imagines something new and he says, ‘That’s it. That’s what I want’.”

The bureaucracy of the mind

The bureaucracy of the mind

by Jon Rappoport

January 21, 2017

These are notes I made in preparation for my collection, Exit From The Matrix. The collection contains an extensive series of imagination exercises designed to increase creative power, and expand the possibilities of a person’s open future.

“Excessive organization of the mind obstructs creativity.”

“A creative future is dynamic. Excessive organization blocks that, in the same way that a bureaucracy stifles innovation with volumes of regulations and restrictions.”

“The bureaucratic mind is complacent. Nothing interesting and adventurous is going to happen. Exciting possibilities are going to be filtered through a maze of rules and ultimately discarded.”

“The moment of change and insight is the moment when the individual sees he can create his own future. At that instant, the bureaucracy of the mind is suspended without pay.”

“The mental bureaucracy starts out as an impulse to maintain security. But ‘protecting one’s future from harm’ eventually becomes so extensive an operation that the future itself dissolves. There is no future. There is only the present, repeating itself.”

“The sign that a bureaucracy of the mind has taken over? The individual keeps shrinking his aims and desires.”

“Eventually, every large bureaucracy is maintained to protect special interests. A bureaucracy of the mind protects the individual from exploring his deepest desires.”

“The movement called Surrealism took apart the bureaucracy of the mind. Surrealism was, of course, too much for most people. They recoiled in fear and loathing. They saw their own ‘apparatus’ being dismantled.”

“Space and time are functions of imagination. It’s not the other way around.”

“Before it was corrupted and altered and organized, the purpose of original Zen was dissolving the bureaucracy of the mind.”

“Logic and imagination aren’t opposites. The complement each other. Logic is all about learning how to walk on the ground. Imagination is about flying.”

“Independent I plus independent I can make a powerful We. But bureaucratic I plus bureaucratic I makes a blind structure.”

“No problem is ever solved by shrinking your vision of the future you want. The problem just festers across the mind’s bureaucracy, and the buck is passed from department to department.”

“Most people are consumed by, or surrender to, organization as the first order of business. That’s backwards. What is the proper degree of organization? The minimum required to implement the vision of what the individual most deeply desires. Anything beyond that is self-fulfilling obstruction.”

“As in government, the bureaucracy of the mind wants to control the range of possible solutions to a problem. No solution must create blowback on the bureaucracy—which is to say, no solution must expose the bureaucracy’s workings as counter-productive and utterly conventional and useless.”

“The origin of power is in the imagination.”

25 quotes on the power of imagination

25 quotes on the power of imagination

by Jon Rappoport

January 9, 2017

I wrote these notes after releasing my second collection, Exit From The Matrix. This collection contains over 50 imagination exercises designed to increase an individual’s creative power:

“Consciousness wants to create new consciousness, and it can. Imagination is how it does it. If there were some ultimate state of consciousness, imagination would always be able to play another card and take it further.”

“If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we’ve flattered reality enough. It doesn’t need any more. Reality needs a massive injection of imagination.”

“Imagination can be used to invent a better shade of nail polish or a universe. In a society devoted to nail polish, imagination is not to blame.”

“Imagination has extraordinary equanimity. It is just as happy to entertain and embody two conflicting realities as it is to spool out one uniform reality.”

“You can create the same thing over and over, and eventually you’ll be about as alive as a table. Inject imagination into the mix, and everything suddenly changes. You can go anywhere you want to. You can build worlds.”

“The lowest common denominator of consensus implies an absence of imagination. Everyone agrees; everyone is bored; everyone is obedient. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are massive floods of unique individual creation, and that sought-after thing called abundance is as natural as the sun rising in the morning.”

“Sitting around in a cosmic bus station waiting for reality is what reality is. Everything else is imagination.”

“There are those who believe life is a museum. You walk through the rooms, find one painting, stroll into it and take up permanent residence. But the museum is endless. And if you were a painter, you’d never decide to live inside one of your canvases forever. You’d keep on painting.”

“Traveling to places one has never seen is far different from creating something that never existed before.”

“The relentless and obsessive search for all those things on which we can agree is a confession of bankruptcy. Instead, build one new thing.”

“We re-learn to live through and by imagination, and then we enter and invent new space and time. But space and time aren’t the superior forces. They operate and come into being at the tap of imagination.”

“With imagination, one can solve a problem. More importantly, one can skip ahead of the problem and render it null and void.”

“You can enter imagination as if were an infinitely fluid medium, or you can give it sharp lines and edges. You can balance left and right, or you can tilt it eighty degrees to the right. You can do anything you want to. You can put a million pink quarks in a bowl and turn the bowl upside down in the sky. It’s Tuesday or it’s Thursday. It’s raining. The sun is out. It’s raining and the sun is out.”

“There are a billion murals on a billion walls, and the person chooses one and falls down before it and devotes himself to it. He spends a thousand years trying to decipher it. So be it. Eventually, he’ll wind his way out of the labyrinth. Then he’ll enter another labyrinth and undergo the same process. He’ll do this on and on and on, and finally he’ll see that he can imagine his own labyrinth. So he does. He invents many labyrinths. Then one day, it’ll occur to him that he can imagine whatever he wants to. It doesn’t have to be labyrinth.”

“What feeds back to you from the product of your imagination is far less important than the fact that you imagined it. People love to ensnare themselves in what they have imagined. They try to inject meaning into it, so much meaning that they become tied up in useless interpretations. They are the ‘product people’. Dreams, paintings, collections of ideas and thoughts—they are obsessed with what they have invented. Just look at what you’ve created it, enjoy it, revel in it, and go on to create something else. This is the path.”

“You can imagine a cosmos that is a forgery of, and a substitute for, the individual. In fact, historically, people have done that on a continuous basis. It’s called organized religion.”

“Imagination isn’t a system. It might invent systems, but it is non-material. It’s a capacity. It feels no compulsion to imitate reality. It makes realities. Its scope is limited only by a person’s imagining of how far imagination can go.”

“The universe isn’t a temple. It’s an amusement park invented by perverse jokers. Stop bowing and groveling.”

“I’m not breaking a system into parts. I’m not trying to teach a person how to tie his shoes. I’m talking about the proliferation of endless new worlds, not seen through a porthole, but imagined and invented.”

“There are no solemn, sober jokes—except the universe. That’s the hook. That’s what drags people in. A joke without a laugh called universe.”


Exit From the Matrix

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)


“The EXPRESSION of imagination is the key. Instead of thoughts circling around aimlessly, you have projection out into the world. You make something that has never been made before.”

“Imagination is larger than any universe. It needs no sanction from the world or from other worlds. It is not some secret form of physics. It is not religion. It is not cosmology. It is not any one picture of anything. It’s what you invent.”

“It’s interesting to remember an earlier time when you had more imagination at your disposal. You might find an array of feelings you appreciate more than the feelings you’re feeling now. You might realize imagination stimulated those feelings and brought them into view.”

“The deployment of imagination unlocks hidden energies. A power, sought after and never found in other endeavors, appears.”

“A metaphor for imagination might be warp drive. You skip ahead in space by huge leaps. It’s not 1,2,3; it’s 1,2, and then suddenly four thousand. You’re not working by serial cause and effect.”

Exit From The Matrix: the adventure of imagination

Exit From The Matrix: the adventure of imagination

by Jon Rappoport

April 4, 2015

OutsideTheRealityMachine

Is there something wrong with having a vision of a great adventure? Looking around at society today, you might think so.

But the individual, bombarded though he might be with propaganda and group-think, still wants it. He wants the feeling of greater space and the power to make something new happen.

He wants relief from repetition and boredom. He wants the thrill of “new worlds.” And not just in his thoughts, but in his life.

The adventure begins in imagination—and by that I mean a great deal more than a flicker of hope or an occasional burst of energy.

There is a line in the mind and the psyche. On one side of the line is everything the individual already knows and can act on. As time passes, a corrosive dissatisfaction grows, because there are few surprises.

On the other side of the line is an infinity of possibility…undiscovered territory. Untapped potential. The unknown.

The North Star in this vast territory is imagination. It’s the North Star and the engine and the vision. It’s endlessly renewing energy and creative power.

Why? How? Because the individual is built for that kind of life. Whereas society is built for something else. Society is engineered for systems and organization and control.

When I put together my mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, I pursued ways of triggering imagination and bringing it into the foreground—not just for a few moments now and then, but in a way that would be as natural as breathing and walking and thinking and feeling.

It is only through education and group-think and complete immersion in systems that imagination recedes into the background.

Based on my own experiences as a writer and painter, my investigation of early Tibet, and my work with a brilliant hypnotherapist, Jack True (who gave up hypnotism and opted for other strategies), I developed hundreds of imagination exercises.

These exercises are aimed at liberating imagination and liberating extraordinary amounts of latent energy in the individual.

That energy, in fact, is always waiting for imagination to swing into gear and doesn’t surface until then.

In Exit From The Matrix, I include and offer dozens of these exercises for daily practice.

The great adventure…

In putting together Exit From The Matrix, I laid out two decades of work in developing specific techniques and exercises that expand the scope and range of the imagination.

These exercises make the creative power of the individual available.

This is the journey from What Already Exists to What Could Exist.

Not just in theory, but through action, through employing untapped reservoirs of power and energy.

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.

What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road.

I invite you to that road.

My 3 Matrix collections: your reality

My 3 Matrix collections: your reality

by Jon Rappoport

December 19, 2014

OutsideTheRealityMachine

There are 3 collections: The Matrix Revealed; Exit From The Matrix, and Power Outside The Matrix.

They cover the nuts and bolts of consensus reality, which is to say, invented reality.

Not only on political, economic, and social levels, but on the level of the mind.

We live in a limited spectrum of perception. The actual arc is much greater than we experience.

Even more important, the vast majority of human beings live in a small corner of their creative potential.

And of course, that potential includes the capacity to invent new realities. On a vast scale.

In that regard, I offer more than 50 exercises designed to expand the power of the individual. These techniques utilize the core faculty of imagination and awaken its scope and range.

What hidden history shows is a highly individual thread I call The Tradition of Imagination.

It is open. It does not teach content or substance or doctrine of any kind. It reminds us that imagination/creative force is the key to another level of life.

Not what imagination has already invented, but what it can invent now. In the hands of each unique individual.

That power.

I invite you to read about these 3 collections at NoMoreFakeNews.com.

Exit From The Matrix: reality is a cover story

Exit From The Matrix: reality is a cover story

by Jon Rappoport

December 12, 2014

OutsideTheRealityMachine

Reality is a cover story.

It conceals two operations.

The first is a series of vast manipulations that operate the true power centers of the world.

The second is what individuals do to limit their own power, which, if exercised, would exceed reality.

In my 30 years as a researcher, I’ve focused on both operations: exposing the first, and enhancing the second.

The key to the second is imagination, which is the often-forgotten force in the core of the human being.

In putting together my mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, I laid out two decades of work in developing specific techniques and exercises that expand the scope and range of the imagination.

These exercises make the creative power of the individual available.

They take an individual from seeing truth to creating new larger truth.

This is the journey from What Already Exists to What Could Exist.

Not just in theory, but through action, through employing untapped reservoirs of power and energy.

I found a key in ancient Tibet, where practitioners and students committed themselves to the expansion of imagination in unprecedented ways.

Before the doldrums of top-down rule set in, these adventurous souls practiced techniques that liberated the creative impulse to an extraordinary degree.

I found clues and used them. Applied them to the world we live in now.

Exit From The Matrix is the realization of those clues, fleshed out, clarified, and embedded in techniques and exercises anyone can do on a daily basis.
