Ego denial or Buffering

[Truth may be too much to stomach, as it can wake you up out of a pleasant state of reality by removing a veil or what Gurdjieff called a 'buffer.'  These veils or buffers are often 'false ego', where ego is defined as any negative programme. Rationalizations are the main defence.  In medicine the Medical Hoaxes aren't going to be accepted too well by the million or so medical industry workers, or the majority who have been conditioned to make the Medical Mafia a covert-religion.  Or the uncomfortable truth that the government is evil.]

"Our rulers make the news, but they do not appear in the news, not as they really are-not as a political class, a governing establishment, a body of leaders with great and pervasive powers, with deep, often dark, ambitions. In the American republic the fact of oligarchy is the most dreaded knowledge of all, and our news keeps that knowledge from us. By their subjugation of the press, the political powers in America have conferred on themselves the greatest of political blessings-Gyges' ring of invisibility. And they have left the American people more deeply baffled by their own country's politics than any people on earth. Our public realm lies steeped in twilight, and we call that twilight news." ---Walter Karp

Probably the most difficult thing for Americans to admit to as a nation is that their President is evil. [Review] Political Ponerology: Psychopathic Elite & 'Evil' by DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND

Denial is the psychological process by which human beings protect themselves from things which threaten them by blocking knowledge of those things from their awareness. It is a defense which distorts reality; it keeps us from feeling the pain and uncomfortable truth about things we do not want to face. If we cannot feel or see the consequences of our actions, then everything is fine and we can continue to live without making any changes. Denial def

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous: Carl Sagan

Only the small secrets need to be protected. The large ones are kept secret by public incredulity.---Marshall McLuha

The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear. ---Herbert Agar

You can't wake someone who is pretending to be asleep.--Native American Proverb

"Truth is a fruit that can only be picked when it is very ripe."--Voltaire

"A truth's initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic. --Dresden James

"It is easier for a king to have a lie believed than a beggar to spread the truth."---Robert Strecker MD

It doesn't matter what one reveals or what one keeps to oneself. Everything we do, everything we are, rests on our personal power. If we don't have enough personal power the most magnificent piece of wisdom can be revealed to us and it won't make a damn bit of difference.---Don Juan (Carlos Castaneda)


"He (Krishnamurti) said he did not want to belong to any organization of a spiritual kind, because such an organization becomes a weakness, a bondage, and cripples the individual. He said that he did not want any followers or disciples, because the moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. He said that no one holds the key to Truth, that key is your own self, and in the purification and incorruptibility of that self alone."---Asit Chandmal (one Thousand Suns)
