Matrix Control System
The term Matrix refers to the movie hit of the same name from 1999. The word is used as a collective term for present day Earth reality. It contains the following features:
People do not understand they are in prison. They are made subjective, complacent, materialistic and pusillanimous.
People are used as a natural resource for a higher power outside of the matrix, as in 'food for the moon.'
There is a small possibility of waking up, involving group work and a profound realization that all one's life thus far has consisted of lies and illusion almost exclusively. Even what good impulses may have existed have been twisted out of shape by false beliefs absorbed from the environment.
The people of the Matrix actually for the most part like their captivity and will even defend it.
The Matrix can insert any conceivable influence into people's lives in order to get them back in line. These can be sticks as well as carrots, most too subtle to recognize with certainty. See A influences.
Because the Matrix Is not explicit, because it is a fundamental element of reality, people do not see it nor do they in their state of sleep look for anything outside it.
Going past the allegory, we see the actual matrix as consisting of multiple levels. The first is direct political control and explicit power structures. The second level is cultural values and religions. Beyond these are likely human agencies such as secret societies combining influences in big money, military-industrial circles, churches and social institutions. These power brokers are however not part of the visible government. Such structures may themselves have multiple levels. At some point most probably exist parties directly dealing with so-called aliens or 4th density STS forces.
This structure maintains control through various means. However, we do not see the necessity for pervasive direct mind control since time-tested methods of political manipulation, appeal to patriotism and religion, undermining education, promoting poverty and other such techniques seem to be fully adequate. In some cases, more targeted mind-control may be a reality, as in engineered apparitions, synthetic telepathic messages, Greenbaum programming etc.
The deepest and most metaphysical level of this is not perceptible to us. According to the Cassiopaeans this is built right into human genetics by the 'owners' of the planet. The legend of the Fall from Eden is an allegoric rendition of the installing of this deepest level of control.
