Is there are great deal of difference between these mythological fantasies that you describe, and the fantasies that most unconscious people live in ?
It is just fantasy after fantasy.
Some believe the terrorists are coming to get them, others that Clinton is, others fear Trump. Perhaps it is the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Or global psyops.
Funny things is, everyone is so sure that their version is correct. That's funny isn't it. Everyone has a different view, and all are sure their's is correct.
That is called an extremely unconscious species.
Meanwhile, who is praying, who is meditating?
Who does the work to fix oneself?
Anyone? Or are you too busy enjoying yourselves with your own personal fantasy?
