Excerpt from Freedom From Religion

Jack Barranger

 

What Is the Slave Chip? The slave chip is not anything new. It has been with us for thousands of years. It is a programming deep within all of us that moves us in directions that are not in our best interests. The slave chip is the result of ancient conditioning. Thousands of years ago controlling forces did not have our best interests in mind. Instead, these forces needed humans who would bend to their will with as little resistance as possible.

However, the ancient humans did not bend to the will of these “gods” quickly enough. Many rebelled and refused to do the will of the ancient gods. Therefore, a drastic move was needed to insure that humans would do what they were told without questioning authority or wanting to know why such slavery was being inflicted upon them.

In my book Past Shock, I do a synthesis of many writers who wrote about the ancient past. This is my third book in what I term a “freedom from religion” series. These books tell you (1) how religion was formed, (2) how it is impacting us today, and finally (3) how we can get free of religion. The ancient past was not a pretty time. It was a series of shocks from which we have not yet recovered. These gods, referred to as “pretender gods” in Past Shock, desperately needed a worker race to prevent a mutiny among their own race. After much deliberation, they decided to create one. Thus began the human race as we know it today.

No doubt our souls were created by the true God to be free and full of joy. Unfortunately, the pretender gods did not have freedom and abundance on their agenda for their newly created humans. Their agenda included obedient slaves who would work hard without complaint or resistance.

However, it didn’t happen that way. The newly created humans were very bright and didn’t take well to the menial work expected of them by these pretender gods. Thus, they kept experimenting until they found a way to have humans work hard without complaining. This meant dumbing humans down to the point where they accepted their highly limited lot without complaining. Evidently, they found a way to program humans in such a manner that we would not only accept our highly limiting lives, but also that we would inflict this limiting lifestyle on others.

This is the slave chip – like a chip inside a computer. After all, our brain is a computer, and, unfortunetely, it is easily programmed. It was more easily programmed when technologically advanced “gods” programmed us.

The slave chip is a very intricate web of programming that keeps people locked into being far less than they are capable of being. It kicks in when people want to break free. It causes doubt when the human soul sends visions of what life can be like. It provides mental barriers to people who want to move to higher levels of life expression.

The slave chip is both individual and collective.

Individually, each person has his or her unique programming from life experience. Some believe that this unique programming might even extend back into previous lives. This may or may not be true. However, it makes a mighty devastating impact whether coming just from this life or from many alleged lives that we may have experienced before.

However, it is the collective slave chip that impacts the individual slave chip. This collective slave chip results from social and cultural conditioning. This less obvious conditioning sets up the expectations that cultures and societies have for people living within their structures. Different cultures have different expectations of their citizens.

However, all of these expectations from different cultures have one thing in common: they want to limit the manner in which you choose to live your life. Put another way, they want you to live in more of a slavery mode than a freedom mode. One of the most ironic parts of this slave chip is that it will look with disdain upon other cultural programming. People in the United States will see Islamic women as oppressed and fail to see the oppression of women in this country. People in other countries will see America as the Great Satan, and fail to see to see any “Satanic mores” in their own eyes that need to be cast out. The slave chip is so effective in its programming that it can convince people that they are becoming more free while they are actually inflicting themselves with a greater slavery. Many people experience a sense of liberation with a religious conversion experience. Yet lying in the wings of various religions are billions of people with very strong slave chips. They see the projection of their own slavery onto others as something that will liberate people.

The slave chip’s programming is so effective that it will see a limiting life as noble, and a freer life as irresponsible. These modes of conditioning are powerful. They are never the result of original thought. Instead, they are fragments passed down from the collective slave chip and embraced as truth. Working hard rather than working smart is seen as the way to go. That is the dictum of the slave chip. Giving up something in order to get something is seen as noble, despite the fact that ways exist that do not require anyone to lose anything. Feeling the need to delay fulfillment until it is earned is one of the greatest victories of the slave chip. It does its job very well.

I am a retired college teacher. If it were not for millions of people programmed to go to college, I would not have had a job. The collective slave chip kept me employed. It insures that few people will question whether any real value comes from a college education. Following the dictates of the slave chip’s programming, people will simply enroll in colleges all over the United States. That is what their programming, their parents’ programming, and society’s programming urge young people to do. What is so amazing is that this slave chip programming is very powerful. Many college-age people don’t even question whether this is their best move. Many think of it as their only move.

Those who genuinely do question the value of a college education are seen as being “out of the swim.” This is where the slave chip does its job so well. It causes people to doubt whether their own doubts are legitimate. Doubt that a certain religion is not the true religion, and guilt will ensue. It doesn’t matter what the religion is. The slave chip works effectively for all religions and much of life.

Question the values you were programmed to have, and your slave chip will help you feel bad. With its powerful conditioning, it will help stop your process of original thinking. It will then drive you back to values that keep you enslaved within a highly limited paradigm. It will also cause you to work even harder to retain your conditioning. You may move into some original thinking that will help you break free of your slave chip conditioning. Then you will experience doubt, frustration, and guilt. Your slave chip is not creative. However, it will kick in when you dare to get creative with your life.

Your slave chip is like a well-programmed computer chip. It is very intricate and very sophisticated. Like the computer chip, it is programmed to keep you a slave. Just as one cannot run a new program on a old embedded computer chip, it is very difficult to run a freedom program on a slave chip. This is especially true when the slave chip has its own limited ideas about what freedom is.

We were close to experiencing a Y2K disaster. Some claimed that it would be a complete catastrophe. Others claimed that it was going to be very troublesome. Others thought it would not be the disaster that some claimed it would be. The problem was solved because millions of lines of programming were rewritten to replace 00 with 2000. (With the simple two digit 00, computers would have read the year as 1900, and this could have caused all sorts of problems.)

The bottom line, from nearly everyone’s viewpoint, was that some serious reprogramming was essential.

The same is true if we begin living lives based on freedom programming rather than slavery programming. That will happen when people begin deprogramming their slave chips. They will begin experiencing more freedom and less or no slavery. This takes work, but the payoff far exceeds the effort.

The slave chip is not physical. It cannot be rooted out as the result of a surgical operation. Nor can it be overcome by writing positive-thinking affirmations alone. The act of writing dozens of affirmations a day is more an act of slavery than an act of freedom. Yet mainly, in new thought and new age circles, the act of writing and speaking affirmations is considered to be a fruitful act. Sadly, it rarely is. It does not address the unconscious issues generated by the slave chip. Instead, it keeps on sending out its own messages of limitation:

You’re not good enough to do that.

You’re going to have to work hard to get that.

You’re not mature enough to do that.

You want to do what?

Just accept your lot in life.

That’s what good people do.

That’s a real immature thought.

The slave chip keeps people looking outside of themselves for the joys they experience. It keeps people locked into getting their main joy from watching things like Barry Bonds becoming the all-time home run leader. Nothing is wrong with this. However, for many, this passive act replaces people hitting “home runs” in their own lives. Instead of being in a career that is so fulfilling that they virtually touch all of the bases, people are “inspired” to get their main satisfaction from vicarious experiences.

What does this have to do with the slave chip?

Too many people passively watch a great sports event that provides them with more pleasure than anything they themselves did that week. (There is nothing wrong with this; I am a great sports fan myself, but when this becomes your main source of pleasure, you might be more addicted to the slave chip than you realize.) People locked up in the programming of the slave chip get more joy from seeing others do things. This can prevent them from doing mighty things in their own lives. This is one of the greatest victories of the slave chip. It “inspires” us to look outside of ourselves for the things that are really meaningful and fulfilling in life.

A person might feel guilty or in danger when she stands up to the programming of the slave chip. However, the slave chip is so effective that it will generate a “feel-bad” program when you dare to stand up to its devastating programming. No one other than your own soul cheers when you begin standing up to your slave chip programming. However, the collective slave chip is so powerful that most people will not cheer when you start deprogramming it. You may even feel threatened when you start breaking for freedom.

The collective slave chip is very powerful. You will not be able to change it. It is firmly entrenched within all societies and cultures. It dominates so effectively that people collectively are not even going to confront it. Your way to freedom and a more fulfilling and successful life is to deprogram your own slave chip.

Only when increasing numbers of people begin deprogramming their own slave chips will people begin experiencing freedom on a more collective level. I doubt very much if this is going to happen anytime soon. Instead, we appear to be going in the opposite direction. Collectively, people are limiting their own freedoms. In a 1997 poll, 70% of Americans surveyed claimed that they would be willing to give up a majority of the freedoms stated in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights to be more secure. (The Patriot Act, which came a few years later, is an excellent example of that.) Some cracks in the wall of slavery are noticed by a few who then realize that the walls should crumble. However, the majority of people rush in with sealant to prevent any further cracking. These people are not mean or evil. They are just very well-programmed.

So are all of us. However, we don’t have to let that continue. Once we become aware of the slave chip and its programming, we can rush toward our goals with minimal programmed resistance. You can reduce the slave chip’s power and eventually shut it off. When this happens, life achieves a greater flow and joy. Impossible goals now seem possible with far less struggle. The willingness to experience joy instead of struggle begins to dominate. The success that you achieve is done with much less effort and more meaningful results. Your life becomes richer and more meaningful. You move more deeply into the natural condition of your own soul’s leading. This is the way life is meant to be lived. This is our natural condition. Standing in the way of this is your individual slave chip, which is the result of thousands of years of ancient conditioning. Deprogramming that slave chip is just about the sanest thing you could do in this lifetime.
