Day 120: The Paranoia Series - How Cognitive Disinformation creates Paranoia part 1

In the Paranoia Research Series - I will be walking a series on 'Cognitive Disinformation and how this creates Paranoia'
Firstly I would like us to look at a broader definition of Paranoia as not just an experience of anxiety and fear, but the underlying aspects and thought process behind how a person develops a particular Paranoia.
For example I will draw from the following blog - a definition of 'Paranoia'

Day 395: Paranoia: the Home of Human Reason – Part One

"We are now at the Beginning stages of Placing into Context one of the Mechanisms that Influence Everyone’s life on Earth without Anyone being Aware of it - these Mechanisms are Not Yet Understood or Even Researched.
So First we have to Place into Context and into Relevance the Structural Design of What we are Looking at when we are looking at Paranoia.
Paranoia is Just a ‘pretty word,’ Meaningless in a way because Conveniently anything that seems to be ‘Abnormal’ may be classified as Paranoia, so it Needs to have a Word that is More Specific. Paranoia comes from the ‘Para-Noise’, the Paranoise comes from the Paranormal, the Paranormal comes from the Parapsychology and the Parapsychology is the Study of ‘Strange Events’ . But Not really – it is just Studying things that you Cannot Really Physically Touch like Ghosts and Thoughts, because Thoughts are like Ghosts: they are here now and then they’re Gone - in a Few Hours You Will Not be able to Remember the Exact Thought you had, you’ll be able to say “I Thought About” but You will Not Be Able to Recall the Exact Thought and Have it in Exactly the Same Way – also when you are Thinking about Something and Specially during the stage of the Developing Paranoia, the Thought will Repeat itself but In that Process, the Thought will Develop. So the Thought will be Changing and Progressively become More Obsessive and It Will Move You as the One having the ‘Paranoise’ the Paranoid Thought more and more to the Center of the Thought Convincing you that ‘the Thought is Right’ and you will so Change even Your Memory Eventually Claiming that ‘You are Right.’ It is a Fascinating thing that this Happens over and over and over again – and yet, our Psychology is not yet Researching this - it has not even Categorized it correctly because in a way Parapsychology is the Study of the ‘Thought Mind’ – that means Things like Paranoia, because it falls in the same Category as Conspiracy and Ghosts and in the same category as ‘Life After Death’ because it all falls within the things that You Cannot See. "
Paranoia particularly Induced through Thought and thus through Memory and thus through Vision – Television, Stories, Conspiracies, Education – that is all Paranoia, that is all Parapsychology because You Can’t Really Touch it. When that Paranoia becomes Physical, it becomes Psychological because it then would Become a Possession for Real where the Person for instance Believes ‘They Speak to Angels’ or ‘They Speak to their Loved Ones’ or ‘They Speak to JF Kennedy’ whatever ! The Fact of the Matter is that At this Stage, the Whole Preparation Stage that normally would have Happened through Meditation, through the Parapsychological Time-Frame of the Mind would be Forgotten."
So, what we draw from the above blog excerpt is our understanding of the elements, influences and inserts into the mental design of the individual which eventually leads the being to manifest themselves into Paranoia as the repetition of thoughts about a specific topic - where you are now completely possessed by and through repetition of pictures, thoughts, emotion and feeling stimulus - which you then believe is real - due to the strength and consistency at which these stimulus are repeated into your perceptual reality. Therefore we obviously see ourselves becoming living forms of 'paranoia' about most aspects of our lives - where we allowed ourselves to participate in and follow thoughts and emotion feeling reactions over months or years until we are convinced by these repeating thoughts and then believe 'it must be real'. This is how advertisements, the media and entertainment directs the public towards outcomes desires by specific parties such as consumerism, politics etc.
So on this topic - I will be addressing the Cognitive Disinformation as the movement, manipulation and repetition of information- which is presented in specific ways which the conveyer know and probably ahs studied - ac cording to how the human thinks and feels. So if you understand how a human beliefs, fears, thinks, rationalises and becomes addicted to specific energetic experiences, such as is used in consumerism by corporations - then you as the Cognitive Disinformer-  will understand how to develop and manipulate public thought according to your desires outcome."
So the question here is who becomes a 'Cognitive Disinformer - let us look at the definition of Cognitive Disinformation together with an example - after which I will select one aspect of Cognitive Disinformation to explore/expand on within this Blog.

The Problem:

Excerpt taken from:

UforiasSecret"Disinformation is the deliberate dissemination of false information. It may include the distribution of forged documents, manuscripts, and photographs, or propagation of malicious rumours and fabricated intelligence. In the context of espionage or military intelligence, it is the spreading of deliberately false information to mislead an enemy as to one's position or course of action. It also includes the distortion of true information in such a way as to render it useless.
Disinformation techniques may also be found in commerce and government, used by one group to try to undermine the position of a competitor. It in fact is the act of deception and blatant false statements to convince someone of an untruth
Disinformation differs from propaganda in that its true source is concealed, and it usually involves some clandestine action. Unlike propaganda and Big Lie techniques designed to engage emotional support, disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions.
Another technique of concealing facts, or censorship is also used if the group can affect such control. When channels of information cannot be completely closed, they can be rendered useless by filling them with disinformation, effectively lowering their signal-to-noise ratio.
The Cold War made disinformation a recognized military and political tactic, though disinformation is generally more subtle and designed to remain unnoticed by the target audience.
Disinformation should not be confused with misinformation, which is not deliberate; i.e., the person or news source forwarding the information doesn't know it's not true and/or actually believes it; thus, disinformation can be relayed as misinformation if the one relaying the message is not aware that the originator of the message deliberately manufactured false information and offered it up for distribution. Whether the target of such an attack is to mislead the end user of the information or if the disinformation is meant to destroy the credibility of those gullible enough to relay it (usually news agencies) and not really caring what damage it does to the ultimate recipient must be judged on a per case basis."
Examples of disinformation
The classic example of disinformation was during the Second World War, leading up to the D-Day landings, when British intelligence convinced the German Armed Forces that a much larger invasion force was about to cross the English Channel from Kent, England. In reality, the Normandy landings were the main attempt at establishing a beachhead, made easier by the German Command's reluctance to commit its armies.
A classic piece of CIA disinformation was a pornographic movie made in the 1960s with an actor pretending to be President Sukarno of Indonesia. It was meant to undermine Mr. Sukarno with Muslims.
In 1986, national security adviser John Poindexter wrote for President Reagan a "disinformation program" aimed at destabilizing Libya's Col. Muammar Qaddafi by false reports in the foreign press about an impending conflict between the two countries. But the false information reached an American newspaper, The Wall Street Journal - a phenomenon known in the trade as "blowback."
Many 9/11 researchers (notably Mark Robinowitz) have accused some other popular 9/11 conspiracy sites of fostering conspiracy theories as disinformation meant to discredit and distract the 9/11 Truth Movement."
So the first aspect I would like to address here, is who would want to become a Cognitive Disinformer. From the research I have done on the Internet, I have notes that you have those who are in competition with other people/organizations/groups and in attempts to 'annihilate' the competition the group in question will spread rumours and use Cognitive Disinformation to discredit the 'rivals on the internet.' Now the word Cognitive revers to not not merely using rumours and falsifying of information or defamation to discredit another - you actually research or study how the human thinks  - meaning the Cognitive aspects behind human thinking and behaviour and you follow such Cognitive Disinformation techniques which would give you your desires results. These techniques as indicated in the article above are usually used by organisations that profit through discredit other groups/individuals from a political and economic viewpoint.
The second type of Cognitive Disinformer is then the one who gets paid by the above mentioned groups to discredit.
The following article for example, takes a deeper look into "Disinformation: How It Works" - if you would like to check it out:

Then specifically the point I am focussing on today is:
Pay for Comments – Confessions of a Paid Disinformation Internet Shill

The Solution:

So lets look at the  key points that this ex-paid-internet-disinformer mentions as the underlying causes and consequences for him being employed to be a disinformer - because through this we are able to, if one is interested in creating a better world - start to develop insight into how to STOP having to create such jobs such as 'Cognitive Disinformers':
"I had been out of work for almost a year after losing my last job in tech support. Increasingly desperate and despondent..."

"Well, beggars can’t be choosers..."

  "the people making the referrals, like my ex-colleague Yvette, were trained to pick out candidates based on several factors including ability to keep one’s mouth shut, basic writing skills, and desperation for work..."
  "in the end I felt worse about the possibility of losing the first job I’d been able to get since losing my “real” job..."
  "After a while of doing this, I started to feel bad. Not because of the views I was pushing (as I said, I was first apolitical, then pro-Israel), but because of the dishonesty involved. If my arguments were so correct, I wondered, why did we have to do this in the first place? Shouldn’t truth propagate itself naturally, rather than through, well…propaganda? And who was behind this whole operation, anyway? Who was signing my pay checks? The stress of lying to my parents and friends about being a “consultant” was also getting to me..."
Not only does this man now have to face his own self value, who he has to become and the lies he had to spread - which become a changing of ones own personal values - but we are also looking here at forced internet bullying by one party onto those who are forced into such economic positions. I mean we are looking here at the Economic and Societal issues from a two-fold perspective. First the organisations, whom I will start addressing from the next blog, are due to greed and control for power  - allowing themselves to stoop to this level - of manipulating of those who are desperate to have to become a 'Cognitive Disinformer' - which results in the individual loathing themselves and losing more out of life than just a pay check. The second point we are looking at here - is obviously, in common sense the realization that our Economic System, our principles behind which capitalism functions, is responsible for creating situations where the public have to accept such 'jobs', where the point of greed  is being emphasized so extensively, that groups/organizations will do 'whatever it takes' to get their desires outcome.
  As we will start exploring in the next blog - when we start looking at different forms of Cognitive Disinformation - realize that the organizations/groups behind this are always doing it for power, control and greed. Therefore power, control and greed - from the perspective of 'the solution' would be something we as the public will have to address - to ask for ourselves why have we allowed within ourselves to let the desire for power, control and greed to get this obsessive - that we forget completely about Life, honouring ourselves and living a dignified life. We have become empty shells who only live for the energetic value that the money obtained through greed - can apparently give us.
  So the solution to stopping these outflows as what is being created in the system by groups/organizations to be in control and make money - has to be addressed by not just the people in control/ownership of the organizations - but by the public -as firstly we are the ones that are all agreeing that greed and the current way of living is acceptable and the only way forward. Secondly we are the ones that are the consumers (for which those who are interested in obtaining the highest profit, by getting us to buy into the products) -  the ones that are influenced through the manipulation of information - whether it be through presenting products in favourable ways by manipulating our Cognitive Process or through directing our attention away from the competition to purchase from the company who is using Cognitive Disinformation to discredit their 'rivals’. Either way - the responsibility has always been with the Human race - all of us who's decisions and actions are always creating the external world-system within which capitalism functions.

  The Reward:
  Here as mentioned above, the outcome of creating a world where we are not living to achieve happiness through how much money we have - will obviously consequentially change everything we do. If we change the Economic system to Support us as living, breathing expressive beings, by changing how we create and manage our economic system - then the outcome and reward is obviously going to be 'heaven on earth for all'. Why would we all want to keep an economic system that creates Fear and Paranoia in us and in the generations to come - why are we the forerunners of the corruptive practices of Cognitive Disinformation? What does that say about us as the Human who lives for and actually supports outcomes generated by others that create further lives and choices for us based only on Paranoia?
  More to come…
