metaframing

On top of our everyday actions are different layers of control. One of them, the big league ones is metaframing, that is patterns of thinking.

Common people act on impulses, the reaction however is determined by the nature of the impulse. So controlling the impulse, you control the subsequently reaction to that. The trick is to create the illusion of personal choice, illusion that is fooling the free will factor within us. Another trick is the false positive news in tricking the same free will factor, a few days in advance the media announce a press release about … for example … the possibility of petrol price increase. The public opinion wants to fight back to that but they have nothing to fight against since it’s just a rumor. Two weeks later the prices are being increased and the people just comply with the new situation  since they kind of expected that, however being old news it doesn’t have the same impact.

I truly believe that these things are bound to be happening, it’s a enlightenment step that one should take in his/hers personal journey to himself/herself.
