Linguistic tools allow matching the subject's ongoing experience while moving smoothly to altered states. Words such as "and", "as", "because", "while" and "when" are linguistic bridges used to take a person into trance. Even when there is no logical connection if you join them with "and" it appears that there is.
Truisms linked to an indirect suggestion that presupposes the subjects will go into an altered state, linked to a physiological inevitability make the hypnotic response seem impersonalized and hence automatic. Senso-Linguistic infiltration is advanced by disassociating and de-personalizing processes normally thought to be validations of our consciousness, and overloading the conscious mind through self-referentiality makes it easier to stop trying to do anything consciously. As the map is not the territory, internal representations carry some reality but do not reflect what actually happened. Internal representations and physiology are linked in a cybernetic loop. As the subjects are told what to think, behavior is a result of the state they are in.
Information Age communication-technologies ring the bell of propaganda age in an attack on the infobody, the shared presuppositions and myths of the rival and conflicting parts of the social system. The growth of communication tools, the dramatically accelerated flow of persuasive communication through the manipulation of symbols and basic human emotions is not only a system to entertain and inform, but to inject individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior, the Integration through Psychological Media into the social body.
Information is flowing faster than most people feel they can absorb or acquire the additional information needed to make decisions and to be able to control the outcome. This situation provides the ground for Electronic Warfare, tactical deception and Psychological Operations. To distinguish between information and propaganda becomes virtually impossible. Information, a myth filled with the landmarks of consensual hallucination.
Collective phase entrainment by social force; the tactical formation of the social organism is realized through the control of the economy of imagination and individualized, inner control by local peer pressure. An auto-calibrating distributed belief system management allowing for necessary agitation and integration on the basis of horizontal conspiracies, co-dependent limited autonomous intelligence.
Most individual social entities are not well equipped to complete complex tasks, but function well in the context of a social body as a macro-organismic insect population. Individuals might not be able to follow a coherent thought but they are perfectly able to make highly complex calculations regarding social status in respect to dress-codes, facial expression or nuances in language, by using their instinct and being imbedded in a supraintelligent biosystem.
This model is in widespread use, although a part of the game is to pretend it is not. The whole being more than the sum of its parts, the hypothesis of conscious macrobes or social macro-organisms in which individual humans are cells and sub-organisms the organs, seems attractive once a naive belief in solid objects is abandoned. Social organisms are not any less solid than matter itself.
Decentralized Automated Information Systems with EEI (External Environment Interfaces) allow tactical initiatives, yet provide central symbol analysts with intelligence for strategic purposes using people, databases and processors as easily retrievable resources in a network. Autonomous software application systems are called "Agents" or "Demons". The term demon is appropriate as digital demons are not directly controlled by a master program but rather invoked into actions by changes in their environment. Demons can form computational societies with autopoietic lifelike behaviors similar to insect colonies or other social systems. Just as in the traditional form, the digital demons are at once independent and programmed to respond to certain cues in specific situations and environments. Like their stellar counterparts they can serve or control. (Classic demonology lists an endless series of divisions where demons mediate the complexity of supercelestial information.)
Nonlinear hypermedia networks not only allow the subject to reach deep into the seas of information, but something out there might be reaching back. As El Iblis Shah put it: "The infosphere of the planet might crack open for the return of invisible forces beyond reason beating the drums of madness from outer space. Extra-dimensional paramental influences latently possessing a numinosity and sentience on their own, craving expression and desiring entrance to the manifest world." A technotopian dream turns into an infocalyptic nightmare. Implying a hidden key to transform the synlogistical permaflux, what is at issue here is: Can the portals be sealed against the invasion of the old qliphothic transdimensional entities who rule protohumanity by reabsorbing the forgotten atavistic forces that linger in the subterranean levels of our being through psychic-martial arts and using the subsequent energy to bootstrap higher awareness?
