Let’s ask ourselves a question: how can pendulums force their adherents to freely give up their energy? Big and powerful pendulums can, for example, force their adherents to act according to specific rules. But how do weaker pendulums do it? When a person doesn’t have the power to force another to do something, he presents valid argument and tries to convince and persuade the other per- son by promising a desirable outcome. These are all rather weak methods of persuasion that can only be found in a human society, where people are removed from the forces of nature. Pendulums also use these methods sometimes, but they have a weapon that is much more powerful than that. Pendulums are energy based information structures. Therefore, they obey the powerful and indis- putable laws of existence and act in accord- ance with these.
In order for a person to give away his energy to a pendulum, his thought energy must be of the same frequency as the pendulum’s resonance frequency. For this to happen, it’s not necessary for a person to consciously direct his thoughts towards the pendulum. As you probably know, a great deal of what people think and do happens unconsciously. And this particular property of the human mind is what pendulums often take advantage of. Hence, pendulums manage to get energy not only from their adherents but also from their most enthusiastic opponents. You can probably guess by now how that works.
Imagine a group of elderly sitting on a park bench, complaining and criticizing their gov- ernment. They are not adherents of the gov- ernment’s pendulum, because they hate the government for many reasons. But what is happening? The elderly are cursing the gov- ernment, saying how incompetent, corrupt, cynical and stupid it is. So, what they are actually doing is that they are producing a lot of thought energy at the frequency of this pendulum. To be honest, the pendulum could not care less from which side you push it to make it swing. Both positive and negative energy will do, as long as the frequency of a person’s thought energy is resonant with
the pendulum’s frequency.
Thus, a pendulum’s biggest problem is to get to people, to hit them where it hurts in whatever way possible, as long as the pendu- lum or anything related to it occupies their mind. Once the concept of mass media was developed, the methods of pendulums have become increasingly refined. People become quite addicted to mass media. Have you no- ticed how they mostly mention bad things in the news? These programs give rise to strong emotions like agitation, fear, irritation, anger and envy. It is the journalists’ job to attract your attention. The means of mass media, being pendulums themselves, are serving pendulums that are even more powerful. The supposed purpose is free access to any in- formation. The actual purpose is quite different – it is to tune in as many people as possible to the frequencies of specific pendulums.
One of a pendulum’s most favorite methods of getting access to your energy is to get you off balance. If you are off balance, you begin to “swing” on the frequency of the pendulum, by so doing you will be swinging the pendu- lum itself. Let’s suppose that the prices have gone up. You don’t like it, so you react in a negative way – you would feel annoyed, and you would probably complain and talk about it with your friends. And that would be a per- fectly normal reaction. But this is exactly what the pendulum wants. You are radiating negative energy at the pendulum’s frequency into the world. The pendulum will harvest this energy, which will only make the pendulum swing higher, resulting in the situation with the prices getting increasingly worse in the real world.
At this point, the pendulum is controlling you like a puppeteer is controlling its puppet, and the firmest string to pull you by is fear, the most ancient and strongest feeling there is. It does not really matter what it is you are afraid of exactly, but if your fear is somehow connected to an aspect of the pendulum, the pendulum will get your energy. Anxiety and being nervous are somewhat weaker threads, but they are nonetheless strong enough to pull at and get you jumping. These feelings are very good at fixating thought energy radi- ations on a pendulum’s frequency. If something is bothering you, it would be hard for you to get our mind off it and focus on something entirely different.
Feeling guilty would be another very efficient way for a pendulum to pump energy out of you. Feelings of guilt are forced on us already in our childhood. It’s a very convenient method of manipulation. “If you’re guilty, then you have to do as I tell you.” It is very unpleasant to live with guilt, and therefore people try to get rid of these feelings. But how? You redeem your fault by either accepting your punishment or working off your debt. Both alternatives imply submission, obedience and a specific way of thinking. The call of duty is a particular form of guilt. To have a duty means that one is obliged to do something. As a result, “the guilty”, both the true ones and the ones that are made to believe that they are guilty, are walking around with their heads hanging, bringing the pendulums their energy on a plate. Inducing feelings of guilt by suggestion is the most favourite weapon of manipulators, and we shall return to it at a later point in this book.
All possible human psychological complexes should be noted in particular. The inferiority complex: I am not attractive, I don’t have any abilities or talents, I am not particularly bright or clever, I don’t know how to communicate with people or how to be around them, I’m not worthy etc. The complex of guilt: I’m guilty of something, everyone is judging me and I have to bear my cross. The warrior complex: I have to be cool, I declare war on myself and on everybody else, I will fight for my place under the sun, I will take what is mine by force. The truth-lover complex: I will show that I am right and everyone else is wrong, whatever it takes. These and other complexes are personal keys to the en- ergy of separate individuals. A pendulum, by hitting on a vulnerable spot, is zealously pumping the energy out of this person.
You can continue naming the strings by which the pendulums control their puppets: justice, pride, vanity, honor, love, hate, greed, generosity, curiosity, interest, hunger, as well as other feelings and needs. Your feel- ings and interest allow the flow of thoughts to be fixed in one direction. If a particular subject doesn’t provoke any interest or emotion, then it’s very hard to focus on it. There- fore, pendulums are able to capture the flow of thoughts by pressing the right buttons like the particular feelings and needs of a specific person.
As a rule, people have a standard way of re- acting to negative external sources of irrita- tion. Negative news provokes discontent, alarming news provokes a reaction of worry or fear, having been offended provokes dis- like and so on. Habits function as the switch that sets the mechanism of capture in mo- tion. For example, the habit of getting irrit- ated or worried with little cause is the same as reacting to a provocation. Basically, it is the same as reacting negatively to a negative source of irritation. A person could be aware of the fact that negative thoughts and actions won’t lead to anything good, however he would still make the same mistakes out of habit.
In this way, habits often create problems and force us to act inefficiently, and yet they are difficult to get rid of. Habits are illusions of comfort. One has more trust in what is famil- iar. Anything new causes worry and fear. The old and familiar has already been proven to work through experience. It is like an old armchair, in which you sit down to relax after work. Maybe a new one would be bet- ter, but the old one is more comfortable. Comfort is characterized by such concepts as convenience, trust, positive experience and predictability. New things possess these qualities to a much lower degree, thus it takes a lot of time for a new habit to turn into an old one.
So, we’ve looked at the methods of influence that pendulums use on people. Can a man escape from the influence of a pendulum?
We’ll be talking about methods of escape further on. Still, it often happens that someone stands up to the pendulum that has enslaved him and openly opposes it. In any battle between a man and a pendulum, the man will always suffer a defeat. A pendulum can only be defeated by other pendulums. One man can’t do anything. If a man is no longer obeying the pendulum and he gets into a fight with it, he will only lose energy. In the best case, the man will be thrown out of the system, while in the worst case – he will be crushed. An adherent that had the guts to break the rules set by the pendulum, will be proclaimed an outlaw. On the surface of the real world, the man will be convicted or con- demned for his actions. In reality, it is not the man’s action that makes him guilty, but rather the fact that he has gone out of control and is no longer a source of energy for the
pendulum. Why is it that “a fault confessed is half redressed”? Because the man who accepts the feeling of guilt is completely ready to submit himself to the pendulum’s rule. For the pendulum, the actual remorse of the adherent for the act committed doesn’t mean any- thing. Only the restored control over the adherent is of any importance. The pendulum will immediately be much nicer to you, if you give it the opportunity to manipulate you. And if the guilty one does not submit to the pendulum, then he can be removed, because there is nothing more to gain from him. The true motives of the pendulum are usually veiled by moral principles, saying that a per- son that has shown remorse is not such an evil person after all. You can easily distinguish whether moral principles are at work or the interests of the system have been in- fringed upon, if you only keep in mind what pendulums look like and what their true goals are.
