We have dropped the “graphy” – meaning picture, off of those words.
Gk: porne, prostitute: bought and sold
pernani: to sell from the root variant *per, to traffic in, to sell+
graphia: to write
1859 variant Fr: obscene pictures
Today it means to compromise your internal values for some sort of gain, to take beauty and strength and sell it.
When we ‘buy’ into Fear Porn we are selling our strength.
When we ‘buy’ into Hope Porn we sell our heart.
Because: we are caught in fear and we want hope.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
― Frank Herbert, Dune
Everything is ‘graphique’ today, social media, news, TV, and a lot of it is pornographic or obscene. Not only that, it is unavoidable, in our faces. We have no control over what we read or what we see, it is pernicious (having a harmful effect, especially in a gradual or subtle way). It works its way into our awareness through repeated exposure.
It is meant to be shocking and ugly – it is meant to destroy our souls, it is force feeding us ugliness in order to overcome our innate goodness. It is meant to shred our inner sense of self and story and replace it with its own narrative, repeated over and over until its litany is all we can see.
And we know it is mostly lies so we keep watching, trying to catch the lie, but lies are twists and turns meant to focus us back into the lie, not the truth. They are a closed loop system – and to be able to see the lie, you have to stand outside it, not in it. A lie is a Mobius.
I direct you to Jon Rappoport’s blog should you wish to stand outside the Mobius of this latest lie – to see the actual lie – https://nomorefakenews.com/ .
Lies can kill. They do every day. They are the camouflage of a weapon of mass destruction. In this particular lie ‘they’ have given it an unpredictable element – time. It can live outside a host for a much longer time than normal and has a longer asymptomatic time inside a host before it is evident. ‘They’ have fucked with time. Otherwise we would be looking at a standard influenza. (read https://nomorefakenews.com/ )
“Don’t fall for the mass panic. You are a sovereign being who gets to take ownership of your health, life, and vibration. Don’t get distracted by the fear programming that convinces you that you’re powerless.”
Fear is the mind killer and it is time related too. The longer you wait, the longer you look, consume, the more powerful it becomes. Better to stand outside the lie and observe and not participate. Refuse to lend your energy and life force to a destructive Mobius of lies and see it for what it actually is.
Rob it of all of its power and it will die and only you will be left.
