    The more time you spend with your head in the game, the faster you progress. The matrix is designed to pull you back into itself. It will succeed. Time and again. This is the nature of learning to stay longer and longer periods outside of it.

    It is easy for many to wake up and realize they've lost another 3 months to a matrix they forgot about. Happens to the best of us. Don't spend energy kicking yourself. Get back in the game! Try to stay in the game. The more you think energetically, magically, psychokinetically. The more time you spend casting spells with language, or paint, or tone. The more articles you read, videos you watch, information you absorb and create that is geared "extra-matrixly," the more your subconscious will get in the habit of thinking that way.

    Everybody falls. I wanna see how they get up. Minimizing damage and adapting to, or correcting the problem. When you realize you've fallen (and you will) return to Accepting and Rejecting every thought. Become more dominant over your mindspace. Billions of dollars bought huge swaths of real estate in that mindspace.

    Minimize the time spent absorbing THEIR information and build a psi wheel. Or write spells. Or cast music. What do your psychic shields look like? What do they do? Automatic Writing? Remote Viewing? You got a list of at least 3 themes that speak to your subconscious mind melodically? Expand it to 10. Rack up Confirmed archon Kills. Get back in the game and endure the training of superheros. You got the good ride, ladies. A world where becoming a superhero is possible. I wonder how many other assholes get a ride as good as that one?

    Get down on your fucking knees to SOMETHING for a game that good. Shed tears of gratitude and awe, AND THEN GET BACK TO PLAYING THE MOTHERFUCKER.

    Everybody falls. How do you recover?



    As any casual observer of the hospitality industry knows, hotel maids spend the majority of their days lugging heavy equipment around endless hallways. Basically, almost every moment of their working lives is spent engaged in some kind of physical activity.

    But Langer found that most of these women don't see themselves as physically active. She did a survey and found that 67 percent reported they didn't exercise. More than one-third of those reported they didn't get any exercise at all.

    "Given that they are exercising all day long," Langer says, "that seemed to be bizarre."

    Perceptions Matter

    What was even more bizarre, she says, was that, despite the fact all of the women in her study far exceeded the U.S. surgeon general's recommendation for daily exercise, the bodies of the women did not seem to benefit from their activity.

    Langer and her team measured the maids' body fat, waist-to-hip ratio, blood pressure, weight and body mass index. They found that all of these indicators matched the maids' perceived amount of exercise, rather than their actual amount of exercise.

    So Langer set about changing perceptions.

    She divided 84 maids into two groups. With one group, researchers carefully went through each of the tasks they did each day, explaining how many calories those tasks burned. They were informed that the activity already met the surgeon general's definition of an active lifestyle.

    The other group was given no information at all.

    One month later, Langer and her team returned to take physical measurements of the women and were surprised by what they found. In the group that had been educated, there was a decrease in their systolic blood pressure, weight, and waist-to-hip ratio — and a 10 percent drop in blood pressure.

    One possible explanation is that the process of learning about the amount of exercise they were already getting somehow changed the maids' behavior. But Langer says that her team surveyed both the women and their managers and found no indication that the maids had altered their routines in any way. She believes that the change can be explained only by the change in the women's mindset.
