Ok. So I'm not sure I truly believe this is the real Illuminati. That being said, it has been an interesting experience.
So I have developed a rapport with a couple that lives in my neighborhood. They are very friendly and we have a great deal in common ideologically speaking. About a week ago they suggested that I should join the Illuminati, an organization they are members of. They felt my personality and way of thinking was comparable and conducive to the organization so they told me to visit illuminatiofficial.org and sign up. Promising no membership fees or sacrifices etc.
Now I am not a spring chicken, but I am quite a curious cat. So I visited the website and read through everything. After taking in all that information i decided that while the message and goals are both noble and within the paradigm of my belief system.... it has to be a load of crap. However, I am a mischievous soul. So I decided to have some fun. I created a brand new email account (for the sake of anonymity) and signed up. As promised nothing was required of me and it felt as nothing had really changed. The email address I had created was receiving messages from the "Illuminati", though most of which was rehashing sections which the website already explains or was basically an advert looking to sell me various pieces of merchandise at an arguably fair price. So all in all I figured, "Yeah just folks playing pretend."
Then it dawned on me that perhaps this is a unique way of getting the switch in peoples brains labeled "LAW OF ATTRACTION" to click on with out them realizing it. To create a placebo for positive thinking. Essentially someone visits the site and signs up, gets the emails buys the merchandise. Mentally becomes fully on board with the idea that they are in the Illuminati. The sense of security (however justified or false it may be) begins to breed a positive attitude in the person. The positive attitude leads to higher self esteem, leads to bolder and more sensible choices, which ultimately leads to more opportunities and the individuals life begins to thrive and prosper. In turn, the person would feel the decision to join was vindicated and then begins acting in ways to promote the goals of the organization, leading to a feeling of fulfillment/accomplishment and other general good warm fuzzy feelings expounding the process even further.
So then something odd happened. I started getting emails to my other email accounts and on social media. From people claiming to be members and introducing themselves etc. I found this odd because when I signed up i made a "fake" email address just to do so. other than my ip address, it has no digital relation to any of my other areas of online presence. (admitting the IP address may be exactly ho they are figuring all this out.)Then I engaged in the following conversation with a so called Illuminati Recruiter via direct messages on Twitter. Keep in mind I am a mischievous soul..... so my natural instincts lead me to play along and fuck with the guy.
Lastly, I am not an impressionable individual. I am very much an omega type of individual. Lone in practice while watching over the pack. In all things, my judgment is the last word with all the decisions that I make and the actions I take. I have come to understand my way of thinking as the next evolution of the human species Homo Illuminus
I finished it up with a winky face emoji.
