LISA RENEE: “GOAT”

“The Baphomet Deception was mainly carried out by the Luciferian Knights Templars in order to distort and twist the original Gnostic teachings from the Christos Essene Templars, the blue flame grail lines of the original 12 Essene Tribes. From the earliest Luciferian Templar sects, this signature was promoted over many generations to be adopted into Islam and to pervade the Satanic sects, in which it became the Church of Satan’s GOAT (god of all things) symbolism. Some of these secret society brotherhoods referred to God as the God of All Things, which was turned into the acronym GOAT. Hence, the symbolism of the goat faced demons Baphomet and Pan that have been commonly associated with the horned devil in Satanic rituals and occult seals used to evoke demonic powers. Recently, a special op has been involved in the safe transit of people that have been mutilated by the injection and the AI related signal spray with the CV insignia connected to G.O.A.T., that has rendered them in the past timeline. G.O.A.T. is God of All Things, and this insignia is Satanic and appears as a Baphomet head that has overlaid itself on the person’s brain and or 3D mental body. This is a recent development, and seems to be a feature of the injection that is mixed in with the severe mind control of the victim who suffers from terrorizing fear, in which an inversion of the consciousness body takes place which thrusts their Lightbody into a past timeline somewhere in phantom 3D realms. This is like an electrocuted brand in the person’s head and crown, identifying them through this brand as satanic entity food.”

LISA RENEE: “Gaian Shadow Body”

“During the Gaian invasion an entire planetary shadow body was formed through the use of advanced Black Hole Technology in which an AI replication of the Gaian Matrix was captured. This was made for the purpose of capturing Gaian frequency and generating feedback loops of harvested energy in order to send that current back through the Wesa Tunnel. They collected mass amounts of energy from the Gaian matrix in order to form a phantom Black Sun in the Metagalactic Core that would act as an NAA base in 8D and run Metatronic Reversals throughout the lower dimensions. This essentially acted as a frequency fence, making it impossible for Founder races to breach the net and gain access to the human race stationed in the lower timelines. The invading black hole entities desired to build an extensive virtual reality playground with assorted planetary systems for inhabiting their race lines with the use of extremely advanced AI black hole technology forming into a Black Sun, which also feeds them energy to maintain an immortal existence. To handle the energetic load, they built extensive levels of Beast Machine architecture and assorted metatronic alien machinery with Gaian stolen creation codes, including Azurite DNA. This content became the shadow body form utilizing metatronic death coding that ran reversal current loops designed to sustain these parasitic matrices from within Artificial Timelines. This was further siphoning from our system through all of the other dimensions and timeline densities by running metatronic reversals from the Metagalactic Core, which pulled life force from out of the grid network of our entire planetary matrix. The original Guardian Azurites that were on Gaia were captured by the invading entities, while others suffered serious genetic digression during the Gaian Wars, when their consciousness race lines were fused into the AI coded Gaian Shadow Body that was inserted into the Artificial Timelines. Some Azurites were taken into the Wesa system and their genetic template and every part of their etheric body was taken apart and mapped by AI supercomputer systems, to generate metatronic coding or Anti-Christ architecture. Consequently, the invasion of Gaia included excruciatingly painful memories of being separated from our unique Soul and Monadic families, as well as being separated from particle-anti-particle double, which later evolved into our genetic equal or hierogamic sacred union partner.”

The onset of the invasion of the Wesa entities through the Metagalactic Core directly impacted the Gaian core and contributed to a series of Electric Wars in Orion, and this includes the timeline bleeding through into the Gaian Wars. During the Gaian invasion an entire planetary shadow body was formed through the use of advanced Black Hole Technology in which an AI replication of the Gaian Matrix was captured. This was made for the purpose of capturing Gaian frequency and generating feedback loops of harvested energy in order to send that current back through the Wesa Tunnel. They collected mass amounts of energy from the Gaian matrix in order to form a phantom Black Sun in the Metagalactic Core that would act as an NAA base in 8D and run Metatronic Reversals throughout the lower dimensions. This essentially acted as a frequency fence, making it impossible for Founder races to breach the net and gain access to the human race stationed in the lower timelines.

The invading black hole entities desired to build an extensive virtual reality playground with assorted planetary systems for inhabiting their race lines with the use of extremely advanced AI black hole technology forming into a Black Sun, which also feeds them energy to maintain an immortal existence. They required the source creation code for planetary body blueprints so they actually stole the original creation code from the Gaian matrix. They also needed access to continue to harvest living energy matrices in order to replicate Black Sun shadow body planetary systems within their phantom systems in Wesa. To handle the energetic load, they built extensive levels of Beast Machine architecture and assorted metatronic alien machinery with Gaian stolen creation codes, including Azurite DNA. This content became the shadow body form utilizing metatronic death coding that ran reversal current loops designed to sustain these parasitic matrices from within Artificial Timelines.

During the stages of invasion to conquer Gaia made through a series of Electrical War campaigns, they increasingly used the living matrix of the Gaian body. This was further siphoning from our system through all of the other dimensions and timeline densities by running metatronic reversals from the Metagalactic Core, which pulled life force from out of the grid network of our entire planetary matrix. The generation of the Gaian Shadow, or the Gaian Phantom Body during the final stages of the Gaian Wars, was the primary causal event in the human holocaust timelines that has been feeding and holding together the first matrix origination of the Artificial Tree of Life reversal patterns or blended reality system. The Artificial Tree of Life, a base 10 reversal matrix designed to run Metatronic Reversal or anti-Christ death current, further infected the entire planetary matrix and angelic human DNA through its Monadic body that was bonded and fused with the original Gaian Shadow etheric body forms. This particular historical timeline trigger event of fusing multiple timelines with the Gaian Shadow Body is what runs the metatronic reversal patterns and Artificial Tree of Life imprint throughout the Albion-Cathar body template that is located in the United Kingdom. Each dimensional sphere within the Albion-Cathar or Kryst-Krystallah pattern must be rehabilitated and reconfigured into the correct manifestation template design of our original Gaian Matrix Edenic coding, that was held by the Azurites that existed in pre-fall 7D Gaia.

Through Guardian Host Defender rehabilitation and rescue projects, we have noted that the Gaian Shadow Body was the first attempt of Wesa black hole entities to replicate an entire living planetary system from our Universe. They accomplished this by pulling the organic living matrix within planetary bodies into their Phantom Matrix via artificially replicated systems forming shadow planet doubles, generating an AI version of our systems planetary matrices that are reconfigured by AI systems to exist in a base 10 reversal current shadow form. Thus, we have observed several phantom planets that appear in the artificial timelines that were spun off from the original Gaian Shadow body, such as the AI matrix replication of the Lyran Founder Sun Star and Arcturus in prematter, as well as planets Tara, Tiamat, Mars, Maldek, Saturn, and Nibiru. Apparently Nibiru also has a pre-invasion matrix that exists as the organic 12th planet in the timelines before the Thoth-Enki-Enlil Collectives from Sirius A took it over and weaponized it against the earth.

Additionally, the destruction of Gaia generated a chain of causal events which impacted many other neighboring living systems, such as parts of Andromeda, Sirius and other star systems that fell into the Wesa Tunnel and became trapped within its phantom parts. Parts of the Gaian Shadow matrix merged with other fallen matrices that were interconnected sending many advanced levels of Ascended Master collectives to be sucked down into the Wesa system’s phantom parts, and this included the Guardian Azurite identities that were originally seeded upon Gaia to embody the entire Gaian Matrix for ensuring Founder presence was maintained upon the planet.

Guardian Azurites

The original Guardian Azurites that were on Gaia were captured by the invading entities, while others suffered serious genetic digression during the Gaian Wars, when their consciousness race lines were fused into the AI coded Gaian Shadow Body that was inserted into the Artificial Timelines. Some Azurites were taken into the Wesa system and their genetic template and every part of their etheric body was taken apart and mapped by AI supercomputer systems, to generate metatronic coding or Anti-Christ architecture. Consequently, the invasion of Gaia included excruciatingly painful memories of being separated from our unique Soul and Monadic families, as well as being separated from particle-anti-particle double, which later evolved into our genetic equal or hierogamic sacred union partner.

LISA RENEE: “The Fallen Tree”

“Since about the end of 2015, I have been observing massive changes occurring in the planetary body which have deeply reconfigured the 1D and 2D stargate, and all of the energetic tributaries that run into them horizontally and vertically. My personal observation of changes happening in the architecture of the collective field brought portions of the fallen tree template into my awareness at that time. This stage of observing the digressed 12 Tree Grid in the human body has generated some problems in the outer world, which are obvious for many of us in the ascending community that have been experiencing the extreme schisms that are showing up in people and organizations as a result of the Bifurcation. There are groups of people that are digressing into descension spiral patterns during the bifurcation, and this is showing up as Collective Lightbody Damage referred to as the fallen tree. I’ve observed pieces of this over the last two and half years, however it is hard to describe in general terms, because there are many unique individual factors that depend on that person’s choices and consent to authority. Our choices and our personal behaviors have energetic consequences that directly impact the state and health of our lightbody, thus impacting our state of mind and level of consciousness.”

~Lisa Renee

 

There are new patterns of electromagnetic disturbances, interruption or distortions in the collective field rippling these effects into the unmanifest layers of the core manifestation template, or that which makes up the 3D timeline that impacts the 12 Tree Grid. Therefore, it is time to start to explore the path of the fall on the descension spiral and the 3D digression that is happening to the embodiment process of the 12 Tree Grid within the human energy field.

As we shifted into the second harmonic universe, the Core Manifestation Template in the human body has potentially shifted into the higher Diamond Sun embodiment stages or digressed into the fallen aspects of the 12 Tree Grid that remains on the artificial 3D timeline. The digression that has occurred to the 12 Tree Grid embodied core template is considered the path of The Fallen Tree.

Our choices and our personal behaviors have energetic consequences that directly impact the state and health of our lightbody, thus impacting our state of mind and level of consciousness.

The path of the fallen tree in its positive polarity has full choice in making the partial ascension path a possibility at the time of the physical death passage. The areas of danger zone are the extremely damaged people exhibiting advanced stages of violence and criminality that are likely Consubstantial with Fallen Angelics or suffering from Black Sun NAA Possession.

This lightbody damage to the 12 Tree Grid and implosion to the 1D base shield has impacted a lot of people on earth. Ascending groups should be aware of this development in order to better understand what questions we can ask to help repair the architecture in the earth body and help provide bio-regenesis for The Fallen Tree. And for energy practitioners to become more equipped to understand that this phenomenon of subconscious mind fragments and shadow aspects has moved up into a repository in the False Navel area of the human energy field between the 2D and 3D energy centers. In order for this level of digression to occur, one must have suffered heavy trauma, be steadily resisting changes required on the ascending path, believing mind control programming and in constant violation of the laws of nature, living as a false identity in AI timelines with a high level of red wave base Survival Consciousness and automaton behavior.

Bring to mind the general profile of a Service to Self type of personality. A person that can only see what they can get out of others, whether it is stealing what they want or taking what they want, they are usually unwilling to work patiently for anything. They live for instant gratification of their immediate needs and desires and resorts to criminality and violence if they don’t get what they want. What is described in demonstrated behavior is a fallen tree grid, it is representative of this kind of negative behavior at a very base level, a primitive level of Ego/Personality, devoid of conscience, rejecting higher learning and not caring about others in the world.

Fallen Tree Key Themes

  • Key themes noted for the digressed 3D template for the 12 Tree Grid, known as The Fallen Tree on the Path of the Fall.
  • The Planetary Staff axis change has tilted the base shield, the core tree grid appears tilted towards the right about 10-15 degrees off from the vertical line of the physical body.
  • The etheric webbing and etheric layers around the physical body have holes, tears, a gathering of static energy and chaotic fragmented fields from the collective, free radical buildup, nanites, implants, AI Signal running, area builds up excess static charges that blow holes in aura. (entities and dark forces exploit this weakness aggressively).
  • As 1D center dissolves, it forces the 2D center to pull up energy current from earth interface links directly into the navel and sex organ area. This 2D center has moved position and acts as the root chakra and interface with the earth field. If there is no base grounding shield, there is generally a broken vertical channel, the energy moving up into the body is very low frequency, it acts like a psychic sponge of the environmental energies without a filter.
  • The previous 1D atomic body Grounding Mechanism has dissolved its membrane. The content in the 1D center is the subconscious mind fragments, this shadow self has moved up and seats in the false navel area about an inch beneath the belly button. This area can attract collective unconscious fragments from the environment also.
  • Imploded grounding mechanism means no root-base or corrected interface with the earth field, there is a need to build a new earth chakra interface and vertical channel link with the planetary zero-point field. Some new base shield interfaces for the Galactic Suns, and the Sun Disc Network were built during the Crystal Core Activation.
  • Shifting into next harmonic raised the fundamental DNA strings to 2 ¾ or 2.75, hence this is where the lowest fundamental frequency, the subconscious mind must seat itself into the human body. The unnatural repository has been forced on the body to house subconscious content, this has links to the Conscious Mind. Membrane between conscious and subconscious dissolved, bringing subconscious debris into the surface of the conscious mind and the 3D ego center.
  • The 2D and 3D energy centers as well as the 4D and 5D centers are misplaced and not in the correct position. The 5D center down steps frequency into all of the lower energy centers attempting to link circuitry and make corrections in the energy center placement.
  • The NAA deployed AI Red Wave Signal to replace dissolved red wave spectrum, thus exploiting the subconscious mind repository into artificially reversed polarity. It is running Victim-Victimizer software programming throughout lower energy centers still operating in that person.
  • AI Red Wave Signal aimed at the 7D center to create artificial link from Crown center to subconscious repository intended to activate Crux Implants on the left side and run artificial reversal polarity in gender flows, damaging 6D-7D Male-Female Wings, putting them in reversal gender sequence. Transhumanism and Transgender subconscious programming is used in tandem to exploit psycho-emotional weaknesses for gender reversal.
  • The AI red pulse seems to be connected or working with the reversal 7D violet transmission, a top to bottom hara line running artificial red waves. See Red Nile Cube. This technology has been observed as being pulsed into large groups, like stadiums of people in the world cup, or in the popular rave scene with a celebrity DJ type of venue. [1]

Red Nile Cube Technology

Black Dragon entities attempted to hijack those with Azurite memories on Gaia by running the Red Nile Cube coding in their target’s lightbody, which includes Inverted 7D Violet Ray transmissions of phantom codes from the Gaian Shadow Body, and False Feminine Violet Reversals that run imposter identities using the Ruby Sun DNA, magenta beetle and red spider programing.

The Red Nile Cube matrix from Wesa generates an internal feedback loop in the crown area running into the base root of the perineum through the microcosmic orbit circuitry in the spinal column. This generates false timeline perception by altering the consciousness body north position to invert upon itself, so that the person perceives moving towards the future timeline, but they are actually facing into the past timeline, into an AI phantom time loop.

Humans running the AI red-violet-magenta wave programs are what feed into the AI Dark Mother lunar gestalts, spawning false holograms of Cloned Ascended Master identities which also power up the Azazael gestalt. This weapon is designed for the vilest NAA entities to station themselves in the artificial timelines pretending to be Ascended Masters or friendly advanced humans from the future, who mostly appear in Ruby Sun DNA cloned bodies with Azurite features.

LISA RENEE: “Significant and Positive Changes Taking Place in Our Universal Matrix”

“There are significant and positive changes taking place in our Universal Matrix at this time, which are happening at progressively higher dimensional layers. During the Winter Solstice Gold Body activation, a sixth harmonic universe for 6D-7D-8D was completed and this is gradually restoring the Gaian Matrix to its original pre-fall state. From within the restored Gaian planetary core shines a Christos Infinity Sun, which emanates its solar plasmic rays for the Gold Sun DNA body from 8D. As well as assorted RH Sun-Star Solar factors designed to spiritualize our blood stream in krystal waters and to ignite plasmic coding within our neurological system for the transfiguration of our etheric body and 3D consciousness. Each next layer of access is bringing more recovery and rehabilitation, bringing disclosure and ascension that much closer. While things may look very confusing and dire on the outer scape, these massive shifts at architectural levels are making it increasingly difficult for negative forces to maintain themselves. This is a time to be steadfast in our dedication to know the truth and to nurture our inner spirit and God connection, as we have progressively more access to both. Having a greater awareness of events happening in the Gaian Matrix that are eradicating holocaust timelines and alien machinery used by the Black Suns from the Electric Wars on Hyperborea for timeline bleed through on earth, also helps us to better understand the hidden spiritual warfare behind the aggressive pushing of toxic nano injections that are currently being mass marketed to the earth population.”

There are significant and positive changes taking place in our Universal Matrix at this time, which are happening at progressively higher dimensional layers. Each next layer of access is bringing more recovery and rehabilitation, bringing disclosure and ascension that much closer. While things may look very confusing and dire on the outer scape, these massive shifts at architectural levels are making it increasingly difficult for negative forces to maintain themselves. This is a time to be steadfast in our dedication to know the truth and to nurture our inner spirit and God connection, as we have progressively more access to both.

The return of the Solar Rishi into the matter worlds is a significant event which has generated massive impacts to the timeline architecture of this reality, and is why this month we focus on the current Guardian projects and direct impacts made to the future timeline of the 7D Gaian Matrix. This new configuration has radically changed the Galactic and Metagalactic Core configuration and this is continually unfolding new organic timeline patterns for ascension within the planetary architecture. The 8D Metagalactic Core is also the Gaian planetary core, which previously held in place a Black Sun in the 8th Portal, that was configured from an exact AI replica of the Gaian Matrix during the Electric Wars.

During the Winter Solstice Gold Body activation, a sixth harmonic universe for 6D-7D-8D was completed and this is gradually restoring the Gaian Matrix to its original pre-fall state. This was directed through an intervention in which non-dimensionalized Cosmic God Source fields emerged to host this newly created harmonic universe, surrounding and permeating Gaia within a new Universal Mother Dark Matter Matrix, to correct timeline damage resulting from the Electric War invasion. From within the restored Gaian planetary core shines a Christos Infinity Sun, which emanates its solar plasmic rays for the Gold Sun DNA body from 8D. As well as assorted RH Sun-Star Solar factors designed to spiritualize our blood stream in krystal waters and to ignite plasmic coding within our neurological system for the transfiguration of our etheric body and 3D consciousness.

The Amethyst Order and Violet Flame Yanas and Ramyanas from the Rha God World Creation have been instrumental with organizing extensive emancipation gridwork projects that are happening in the Gaian matrix to restore Universal Tribal Records for angelic humanity. These are assortments of Maji Grail King-Queen instruction sets that restore Gaia’s consciousness record for the Ascended Master lineages, including embodiment of Gaian architecture that holds the original founder emanations of the 48 DNA stranded Azurites. The Tri-Matrix of the Azurites includes three 48 stranded matrices that hold 144 dimensions that are accessed from within a quad merged core manifestation template (12 Tree Grid) that is based on the Ecka God World configurations, the access into the seven higher heavens. These particular Christos diamond sun body templates are forming complex Krystal Cathedral alignments for the Solar Rishi and Founder lineages to pour their consciousness body into, by braiding themselves back into the Gaian Matrix, which is freeing many more Ascended Master identities that were being trapped in the Black Sun constructs.

Having a greater awareness of events happening in the Gaian Matrix that are eradicating holocaust timelines and alien machinery used by the Black Suns from the Electric Wars on Hyperborea for timeline bleed through on earth, also helps us to better understand the hidden spiritual warfare behind the aggressive pushing of toxic nano injections that are currently being mass marketed to the earth population. Everything happening on the earth at this time is connected to the spiritual war happening at multiple dimensional levels, whether we can understand this is taking place or not.

JOHN W. WHITEHEAD: “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers: Psychological Warfare Disguised as a Pandemic Threat”

“Look! You fools! You’re in danger! Can’t you see? They’re after you! They’re after all of us! Our wives… our children… they’re here already! You’re next!”

—Dr. Miles Bennell, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

 

It’s like Invasion of the Body Snatchers all over again.

The nation is being overtaken by an alien threat that invades bodies, alters minds, and transforms freedom-loving people into a mindless, compliant, conforming mob intolerant of anyone who dares to be different, let alone think for themselves.

However, while Body Snatchers — the chilling 1956 film directed by Don Siegel — blames its woes on seed pods from outerspace, the seismic societal shift taking place in America owes less to biological warfare reliant on the COVID-19 virus than it does to psychological warfare disguised as a pandemic threat.

 

 

This conundrum is at the heart of the 1956 classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, which was based on a 1954 science fiction novel by Jack Finney (and later remade into an equally chilling 1978 film by Philip Kaufman).

 

 

Fears of contagion lead us to become more conformist and tribalistic, and less accepting of eccentricity. Our moral judgements become harsher and our social attitudes more conservative when considering issues such as immigration or sexual freedom and equality. Daily reminders of disease may even sway our political affiliations… Various experiments have shown that we become more conformist and respectful of convention when we feel the threat of a disease… the evocative images of a pandemic led [participants in an experiment] to value conformity and obedience over eccentricity or rebellion.

This is how you persuade a populace to voluntarily march in lockstep with a police state and police themselves (and each other): by ratcheting up the fear-factor, meted out one carefully calibrated crisis at a time, and teaching them to distrust any who diverge from the norm.

This is not a new experiment in mind control.

The powers-that-be have been pushing our buttons and herding us along like so much cattle since World War II, at least, starting with the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor, which not only propelled the U.S. into World War II but also unified the American people in their opposition to a common enemy.

That fear of attack by foreign threats, conveniently torqued by the growing military industrial complex, in turn gave rise to the Cold War era’s “Red Scare.” Promulgated through government propaganda, paranoia and manipulation, anti-Communist sentiments boiled over into a mass hysteria that viewed anyone and everyone as suspect: your friends, the next-door neighbor, even your family members could be a Communist subversive.

This hysteria, which culminated in hearings before the House Un-American Activities Committee, where hundreds of Americans were called before Congress to testify about their so-called Communist affiliations and intimidated into making false confessions, also paved the way for the rise of an all-knowing, all-seeing governmental surveillance state.

The 9/11 attacks followed a similar script: a foreign invasion mounts an attack on an unsuspecting nation, the people unite in solidarity against a common foe, and the government gains greater war-time powers that, conveniently enough, become permanent once the threat has passed.

The government’s scripted response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been predictably consistent: once again, in order to fight this so-called “foreign” foe, the government insists it needs even greater surveillance powers.

As we’ve seen since 9/11 and more recently with the COVID lockdowns, those in power have always had a penchant for enacting extreme measures to combat perceived threats. However, unlike the modern America police state, the American government circa the 1950s did not have at its disposal the arsenal of invasive technologies that are such an intrinsic part of our modern surveillance state.

Today, we are watched and tracked 24/7; data is collected on us at an alarming rate by governmental and corporate entities; and with the help of powerful computer programs, American domestic intelligence agencies sweep our websites, listen in on our telephone calls and read our text messages at will.

Now with the COVID pandemic and its offshoots such as contact tracing and immunity passports, the governmental landscape is even more invasive.

Yet no matter the threat, the underlying principle remains the same: can we hold onto our basic freedoms and avoid succumbing to the soul-sucking dredge of conformity that threatens our very humanity?

Body Snatchers not only captured the ideology and politics of its post-war era but remains timely and relevant as it relates to the worries that plague us today. Filmed with only seven days of rehearsal and 23 days of actual shooting, Body Snatchers is considered one of the great science fiction classics.

Body Snatchers is set in a small California town which has been infiltrated by mysterious pods from outer space that replicate and take the place of humans who then become conforming non-individuals. Miles Bennell, the main character, is a local doctor who resists the invaders and their attempts to erase humanity from the face of the earth.

At the very least, the film conveys a double meaning, serving as both a mirror of a particular moment in history and a compass pointing to a growing societal illness. Following World War II with the emerging military empire, the atomic bomb and the Korean War, Americans were confused and neurotically preoccupied with domestic threats, the polio pandemic and international political events, not much different from today’s populace preoccupied with domestic and international political drama, terrorism and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yet Siegel’s film delves beneath the surface to confront an even more sinister threat: the dehumanization of individuals and the horrifying possibility that humanity could become infused as part of the societal machine.

Central to the film is one key speech delivered by Bennell while hiding from the aliens:

In my practice, I see how people have allowed their humanity to drain away… only it happens slowly instead of all at once. They didn’t seem to mind…. All of us, a little bit. We harden our hearts… grow callous… only when we have to fight to stay human do we realize how precious it is.

As Siegel makes clear, it is not Communists or terrorists or even viral pandemics that threaten our well-being. The real enemy is invasive governmental measures — something we now see happening across the country — and, thus, totalitarian conformity. And resistance must be against all government measures that threaten our civil liberties and against all kinds of conformity, no matter the shape, size or color of the package it comes in.

When all is said and done, however, the real threat to freedom (in the fictional world of Body Snatchers and in our present-day America) is posed by an establishment — be it governmental, corporate or societal — that is hostile to individuality and those who dare to challenge the status quo.

The mob hysteria, sense of paranoia, fascist police and the witch hunt atmosphere of the film mirror the ills of a 1950s America that is frighteningly applicable to present American society.

Acknowledging that Body Snatchers portrayed the conflict between individuals and varied forms of mindless authority, Siegel stated, “I think the world is populated by pods and I wanted to show them.” He explained:

People are pods. Many of my associates are certainly pods. They have no feelings. They exist, breathe, sleep. To be a pod means that you have no passion, no anger, the spark has left you… of course, there’s a very strong case for being a pod. These pods, who get rid of pain, ill-health and mental disturbances are, in a sense, doing good. It happens to leave you in a very dull world but that, by the way, is the world that most of us live in. It’s the same as people who welcome going into the army or prison. There’s regimentation, a lack of having to make up your mind, face decisions…. People are becoming vegetables. I don’t know what the answer is except an awareness of it.

All of the threats to freedom documented in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People came about because “we the people” stopped thinking for ourselves and relinquished control over our lives and our country to government operatives who care only for money and power.

While the specific game plan for turning things around is complicated by a police state that wants to keep us at a disadvantage, the solution is relatively simple:

Don’t be a pod person.

Pay attention.

Question everything.

Dare to be different.

Don’t follow the mob.

Don’t let yourself become numb to the world around you.

Be compassionate.

Be humane.

Most of all, think for yourself.
