Pendulums: The Battle of the Pendulums
The main defining feature of a destructive pendulum is that it aggressively seeks to des- troy other pendulums, so that it can drag people over to its side. To accomplish this, the pendulum will always try to set its adher- ents against adherents of other pendulums:
“We are good, while they are not like us! They are bad!” People who are drawn into this battle lose their way and start following false goals, which they mistakenly believe to be their own. This is how the destructiveness of pendulums becomes apparent. Fighting other adherents is fruitless and ruins lives, those of people you “fight” and your own.
Let’s take an extreme example of the battle for adherents – war. In order to convince its own adherents to go to war, the pendulum will put forward arguments that correspond to the specific historical era. The most prim- itive method, often used in history, was to simply order people to get back what was “rightfully” theirs by force. As societies be- came more civilized, arguments acquired forms that were more refined. One nation declares itself the most progressive and de- veloped, while others are declared to be backwards. A noble aim is then to bring these undeveloped people to a higher level, and if they object - apply force. And modern conceptions of war appear to go along the following lines: a beehive hangs on a tree in the forest. Wild bees live there, producing honey and raising their young. But then a pendulum approaches the hive, and announces to its own adherents: “These are wild bees, they are very dangerous and there- fore they must be destroyed or, at least, we have to destroy their hive. You don’t believe me? Just watch!” The pendulum pokes around inside the hive with a stick. The bees fly out and start stinging the pendulum’s adherents. And the pendulum triumphantly ex- claims: “See, I told you so! Look how aggressive they are! They have to be destroyed.”
It does not matter what kind of slogans are used to justify wars and revolutions, their purpose is always the same – to serve in the battle of pendulums for adherents. These battles can take on different forms, but their sole goal is basically to get as many adherents as possible. New energy is a vital necessity for the pendulum. Without it, the pendulum will stop, and thus cease to exist as an entity. Therefore, the battle of the pendulums is a natural and unavoidable battle for their existence.
Right after wars and revolutions follow other forms of battle that may be less aggressive but which are severe nonetheless. Examples of such battles are: the struggle for market domination, the rivalry of political parties, economic competition, all possible forms of marketing, advertising campaigns, ideologic- al propaganda and so on. The living environ- ment is made out of pendulums. Therefore, you will find competition in every possible domain of modern living. There is competi- tion everywhere, on all possible levels, start- ing with political and governmental disputes and ending with competition between clubs and among single individuals.
The new, the unusual, the incomprehensible always paves its way with difficulty. Why is that? Is it simply because new concepts take time to settle in our head? The main reason is that the old pendulums would be at a loss if a new pendulum and another rival would enter the stage and start dragging people to- wards him. For instance, internal combustion engines make a significant contribution to pollution in the cities and they could have been replaced a long time ago. After all, many alternative and pollution-free engines have been developed throughout the years, and should be used instead. However, this would be a threat to the existing pendulums of oil corporations, and these are still very strong. Therefore, they won’t allow some inventors to take them off the stage. So, it comes down to that these monstrous pendulums, which represent large oil corporations, are literally buying up patents of alternative engines only to keep them secret. At the same time, they are trying to convince the world of the low efficiency of these new inventions.
When building their structure on the materi- al plane, pendulums strengthen their posi- tion with financial means, buildings, equip- ment, and, of course, with human resources. At the top of these human pyramids, pendu- lums place their favorites. These are leaders of all ranks and functions, anyone from juni- or managers to presidents of governments. They do not have to possess any special or outstanding qualities at all. Usually, those adherents are made leaders whose combina- tion of traits fits perfectly within the pendu- lum’s structure. The chosen favorite may be- lieve that he has achieved great things in life only because of his personal qualities. It is true, but only to a certain degree. The self- organizing structure of the pendulum plays the greatest role in promoting its favorites. If the parameters or traits of the favorite no longer correspond to the needs of the system, then the favourite will be removed with no regard for his welfare.
The battle of the pendulums is destructive for their adherents, because as they are serving a higher goal they think that they are doing it because they really believe in it. Per- sonal beliefs of adherents tend to be in the tight grip of a pendulum. As soon as a person tunes into the pendulum’s frequency, an in- teraction takes place on the energy level between him and the pendulum. The fre- quency of an adherent’s thought energy is fixed and maintained by the pendulum’s own energy. The person is now trapped in a feed- back loop. The adherent transmits thought energy on the pendulum’s frequency, while the pendulum in turn grants a little bit of en- ergy to the adherent, as to maintain the pen- dulum’s influence over the person.
On the level of material realization, such pendulum-adherent interactions can be seen in everyday life situations. For example, the pendulum of a political party starts an election campaign, catches on to an adherent and feeds him with a little energy delivered in the shape of good feelings such as appreciation, satisfaction, dignity and importance. The adherent believes that he has the situation under control and that he can make his own choices. But, as a matter of fact, he was chosen by the pendulum that now has control over him. On the surface, however, this situation has a different appearance – the adherent believes that he is doing what he wants to do. Nevertheless, in this case, the adherent’s will has been invisibly and artificially forced upon him by the pendulum. The adherent is thus placed in the pendulum’s in- formation field, where he is spending time with others like him, discussing “hot” topics and so on. In that way the adherent establishes energy connections with the pendulum and fixes his own energy within the structure. Eventually, the adherent may realize that the pendulum’s activity does not live up to his expectations, so he starts to resent or doubt his former idol and thus, his frequency slips out of the pendulum’s grip. The tightness of the pendulum’s grip depends on how powerful the pendulum is. In some cases, the pendulum will simply allow its adherent to leave, while in other cases, such a heretic will be deprived of his freedom or even his life.
How a pendulum traps the frequency of its adherents can be illustrated by the following example. Say, you’re singing to yourself. Then all of the sudden, somebody starts playing a different song on high volume. So, as you are hearing this new melody, it will be very difficult for you to continue singing your song to yourself. For the purposes of Transurfing, the specific details behind the interaction process between a pendulum and his adherent are not important. We’ll investigate this interaction, using a simplified model and everyday situations as examples. This will be quite sufficient for our purposes. Nobody will be able to explain to us in great detail and with a high degree of accuracy how things really happen, because then one could ask the question: and what does really actually mean? And this discussion could go on forever, just like the infinite process of acquiring knowledge. It’s an unrewarding task all together. So, we will have to settle for something smaller. We should be happy that we are nonetheless capable of understanding at least something. Now, let’s see how pendulums manipulate their adherents.
