Today’s world is a strange place. We are inundated with signals from early on in life, encouraging each of us to walk a particular path, establishing blinders on us along the way to discourage us from looking for alternatives to what the herd is doing or thinking.

Life is so complex that overtime, if we are paying attention, we realize that there are an infinite number of possibilities to what the human experience could be, and we come see that the world is on fire because individuals all too infrequently question why things are the way they are, failing to notice that their mindset or behaviour needs adjustment in favour of more intelligent, common sensical, or sustainable patterns of existence.

The following 16 signs that you’re a slave to the matrix are meant purely as an observational approach to helping you identify the areas of your life where you may be missing an opportunity to liberate yourself from someone else’s self-destructive design for your life:

1. You pay taxes to people you’d like to see locked up in jail.
2. You go to the doctor, but you’re still sick.
3. You’ve picked Team Democrat or Team Republican and argue with your friends, family and co-workers about politics.
4. You work hard doing something you hate to earn fiat dollars.
5. You’re willing to accrue personal debt to fund the acquisition of a consumer oriented lifestyle.
6. You converse with real people about the ongoing happenings of TV shows.
7. You don’t have anything to hide from total surveillance.
8. You think the world would be safer if only governments had guns.
9. You knowingly drink fluoridated water.
10. You knowingly consume toxic poisons like MSG and Aspartame.
11. You depend on the pharmaceutical industrial complex for the management of your own mental health.
12. You haven’t yet stopped watching your local and national news programming.
13. You’re more concerned with televised sports or other mindless distractions than you are with the quality of your natural environment.
14. You’re skeptical of any area of life that hasn’t been ‘proven’ or validated by modern science.
15. You’ve never questioned the popularized version of ancient history and the origins of our civilization.
16. You haven’t yet realized that you are a spiritual being living a human experience. (404 error these days)

Had these notes in my drafts for 6 years, perhaps for my own information, but I’m going through and either deleting or publishing drafts… this one is definitely a publish. The original url is broken above, but I found a copy of the original article on in5d, which includes more details against each point above.
