The dead rule this world
Dead people get more flowers than living people,
because regret is stronger than gratitude.
What do you think occupies the living most and is of great importance to them? The dead! You don't think that's true?!
In the life of a modern person there are all kinds of traditions, rituals, omens and superstitions. Sometimes we do not even think about what their meaning is and why they are so firmly entrenched in our lives. But there is something common that unites all the things we have listed. Many of them are connected with the theme of death and directly with the dead: with the commemoration of their names and images.
Thinking about them, we communicate with them. Thinking of them, we are spending time with them, we are continuing to live their interests.
We take this "relay baton" from our parents and pass it on to our children. And so it goes from age to age.
We do not even realize that the dead constantly have an invisible influence on the living and surround us everywhere: in paintings in the world's museums, in portraits in school classrooms, in galleries, artifacts, memorials, in sculptural compositions on central squares... The names of famous people were called not only particular streets, but also entire cities.
We do not even notice that the dead are constantly present in our lives: in our homes — in the form of photos of deceased relatives and things that belonged to them; in cemeteries with their tombstones decorated with portraits and sculptures (sometimes full-length), with inscriptions and names of the dead...
Why does this happen?
What’s behind it?
Who needed it?
What happens to us when we remember the dead?
It all began in ancient times and was a legacy of magic. And the pharaohs, taking advantage of the knowledge that when commemorating the dead the living give them their life energy, began to actively perpetuate their names and images. It was only later that royal and king dynasties began to imitate them, and it became a tradition.
And today we already put pictures of the dead on monuments. And living people, weeping and suffering for the deceased, are not even aware of the fact that they unknowingly give them their life forces and thus waste their lives. And the dead, in turn, influence the living: there are thoughts of making a larger portrait, a larger inscription on their graves. After all, investing attention in the name and image is like an entrance ticket for the dead to the world of the living!!!
The dead surround us everywhere, even on money: coins and banknotes contain images and names of rulers. It began as early as the end of the sixth century B.C. The Persian king Darius the Great established the issue of gold dariqs: they depicted him as a kneeling archer. And two hundred years later the Greek commander Alexander of Macedon began to make coins with his portrait in profile. He began to depict on a coin a close-up of himself, not the gods of the Greek pantheon, as was customary. Because he was now "himself a god". So did the Lycians and other satraps of Persia. It became a standard and even a point of boasting, a way of claiming the right to power.
And everywhere the name and the image, the name and the image...
The pharaohs and their secret
So what secret did the pharaohs know that we don't? And why do all those in power imitate them?
It is a mystery about the value of the attention people put into the name and image of the deceased. The pharaohs knew that when a person died and became a sub-personality (hungry spirit), they needed the attention of living people in order to feed. And in order for the energy of attention to flow to him and feed him, the person must know his name and image and put his attention into them, that is, to remember.
Do you think the dead are really interested in our attention? And how can they receive it if they are no longer with us? Now it's time to figure out what Personality and subpersonality are.
According to the Primordial Knowledge, on the eighth day the Soul enters the body of a newborn child and its Personality is formed.
Thus, a subpersonality is a Personality merged with consciousness as a result of the fact that a person did not control his consciousness during his lifetime and fed it with his energy of life in every possible way. And with that, he fed the system. (The system is called differently in every religion — devil, shaitan, tempter demon Mara, Iblis, etc. In the Primordial Knowledge, the system is also called the Animal Mind). Subpersonalities are permanent servants of the system, and it benefits [the system for] the individual to become a subpersonality after the death of the physical body. Because the subpersonality is the living capital that will feed it for centuries.
Consciousness is part of the system, and a person does not even realize that consciousness does not belong to him, but is a tentacle of the system in himself. The function of consciousness is to make a human become a subpersonality, or, in religious terms, go to hell.
Yes, everything in the system is false. The system's task is to activate man's Animal nature (consciousness) in every way by stimulating desires in him. And consciousness is part of the system, and the system is constantly pinging our consciousnesses: there is a sort of distribution of images through the system, as a person perceives images and thinks with them. It standardly uses people who live in illusions of obsessive thoughts, including immortality in the body. People are unaware that they are being manipulated by the system and how this game of "material immortality" may end up in the first place for them. Their dream of immortality in a material body is an influence coming from the subpersonalities, from their wish to live forever in the body. But this desire will remain an empty illusion, for the system itself is finite and mortal. Its momentary existence with billions of years is nothing to the world of eternity, the Spiritual World.
Now let's return to our main theme "The dead rule this world." We talked about the importance of name and image for the "life support" of the subpersonality.
We know from history that the subsequent pharaoh destroyed all images, name and even mentions of the previous pharaoh, preparing his afterlife fate so that people would "feed" only his subpersonality. For example, in the halls of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, statues of Nefertiti and Queen Kiya (14th century B.C.) stand side by side. Kiya was the youngest and favorite wife of Ehnaton, but after her death all of her images were carefully destroyed or changed into images of princesses — daughters of Ehnaton and Nefertiti. (For reference: in our time the image of Nefertiti has been unjustifiably idealized and turned into the standard of female beauty).
The sixth pharaoh of the XVIII dynasty, Thutmose III (ruled c. 1525-1473 BC), as soon as he came to power, ordered the removal of the image of his predecessor Hatshepsut from all monuments and from all temples.
Merneptah, the pharaoh of ancient Egypt in the XIX dynasty (1213-1203 B.C.), also destroyed monuments and the names of other rulers and inserted his own name. The funerary temple of Merneptah in the quarry was turned into a giant memorial complex.
The Romans, Babylonians, and Chinese also followed the example of Egyptian pharaohs to destroy the name and image of their predecessors. So the king of Babylon Hammurabi of the First Babylonian Dynasty (1793-1750 BC) even cursed those who erased his name. And during the Roman Empire, dozens of emperors and their closest relatives were consigned to oblivion, including Marcus Aurelius of the Antoninus dynasty — the Roman emperor (161-180 AD), Agrippina — mother of Nero (15-59 AD) and others. The image of Emperor Nerva (30-98 A.D.) on many bas-reliefs replaced the image of Emperor Domitian (the last Roman Emperor of Flavius dynasty, who ruled in 81-96 A.D.).
In China it is believed that after death a human can be turned into a god if the locals build a temple for him and begin to worship him. Thus, during the reign of one of the Chinese emperors, there were twenty-eight generals who ruled the whole of China with him. After they died, they made great frescoes, and the emperor sent special people to worship them.
Today, the tradition of depicting the dead is a huge layer of centuries-old culture and art. The emperors of ancient Rome immortalized their names and images on bas-reliefs and marble statues. The tombstones of European kings and aristocrats of the early sixteenth century are expensive stone portraits with minute details of images of the deceased. And all the royal families preserved their images in portraits.
It turns out that from ancient times the priests possessed the greatest secret kept in Egypt. Then they passed it on to the friends of Moses, and later it reached the "architects of our world." This secret is still passed down in secret circles of power. It is the secret of the importance of the attention of the living to the departed subpersonalities. For it is the attention of the living that is these drops of nourishing moisture for the eternally thirsty in the world of the dead. That is why those who knew this mystery so vehemently destroyed all mention of their predecessors, so that when the time came, people would remember only their image and praise only their name.
The Living Dead
Have you ever met people in your near or distant environment who have already become dead while alive? They themselves, by their own choice, turned out to be subpersonalities (a person can become a subpersonality while still alive in a body knowingly or not). You may not believe it, but even if it happens unknowingly, this does not exempt us from responsibility and from laws not invented by us. If someone, for example, has not studied physics, it does not mean that he will not get an electric shock when he touches a bare wire. And so it is with the laws of life. Knowledge is all around us. The unwillingness to know oneself and the world around does not exempt a person from responsibility. Because ignorance, first of all, is sin. And here at stake is Life Eternal, and is it worth trading it for torment as a subpersonality for centuries?! It all depends on the person’s choice! And all responsibility for that choice lies on him and no one else. There are no mediators in this most important human choice!
"And this is where it matters, who will we be: a subpersonality or an Angel? Will we be in suffering as we are now, only multiplied in many ways, or will we become those who create worlds? Which is better: to live in Love and joy, to create, to create or to vegetate as a subpersonality?
And this is where a person's freedom of choice comes in, and God does not dictate to him. God gives him Life and gives him a chance to become even an Angel, to become a part of the Spiritual World. Why? Because a part of the Spiritual World enters everyone with his birth. Isn't that so? Right. And this is already an outstretched hand. You just have to take it and not throw it away — and everything will be fine."
From the "Angels Don't Fall" video
After all, everyone who becomes a subpersonality is committing a crime. And each of us subconsciously knows when and what choices we make and, as a result, with whom we make an "alliance”. Often this happens completely unnoticed by us and we only see the consequences of this choice. For example, each of us has had situations in our lives where, for one reason or another, guilt is imposed on us. Guilt is auto aggression (aggression directed at oneself), one of the most or is the most destructive emotion. Why are people often in a state of guilt? Who imposes it on them? And why do they spend their entire conscious lives trying to get rid of it? And how does it happen? Haven't we ourselves had to be in the role of one who imposes blame on another, that is, in the role of a manipulator? A manipulator, by blaming, undermines a person's psyche in order to establish his power over him and then impose anything he wants from himself. And the role of manipulators can be very close relatives as well as complete strangers in line, or your co-workers, your boss, and so on. The manipulator is at the mercy of the system, and it uses him as a puppet. But after all, each of us knows when we are doing something wrong, each of us feels it. But we don't always have the strength to stop.
"Stop. Remember a simple truth: when you do wrong to someone (as they say, you commit a sin: you think wrong, you act wrong, you do wrong), remember that if you don't stop and change right now, when you can change it, then if you don't gain Life later, but become a subpersonality, a billion times you will relive it and think about how you could have fixed it, but you didn't. Are you ready for that? Are you willing to torture your own conscience and torment yourself billions of times over the centuries in order to get over the deed you are doing? It is better to stop this evil at once. You see, you understand. Why do you do it? It's simple, very simple. And the prophets spoke very simply. They told what everyone can understand. For there is nothing simpler than to find Life."
From “About the Spiritual World” video
What kind of picture do we see in our modern world? We humans are killing people! What can we say here?
For the last 6,000 years there has been constant warfare somewhere on the globe. It has become commonplace in our consumerist format of society. We are at war with each other — for the right to possess something, for a place in the sun, for a main place in the family, for the right to have the best contract, or for leadership in any field... This is how the system works. And now the computer game becomes a reality, and the war moves outside your window... And yet not so long ago we could only see these terrible pictures on television. How could this happen? What do people cheat one another for? For the sake of taking possession of someone else's. What do people fight for? They fight for other people's things to make other people's things their own. Isn't that so? After all, one can really only fight with one's nafs (consciousness), not with others and not with dissenters.
Nafs (Arabic النفس), in Islam, is the essence of man, his "I am", his ego. Nafs also refers to passions, all the negative traits of the soul, which are inherent in people and jinn. Thus, people who worship not Allah, but the jinn (Arabic الجني/جن) become a subpersonality while living (the living dead).
…if you are given an order to shoot at civilians, and you are under the threat of death that if you don't do it you will be killed, you start shooting at civilians, then you are already dead.
One can understand those who defend themselves — they are forced to defend themselves. And when a person is even forced to take up arms and defend himself — that's understandable... You can't kill people. But when you defend yourself, you're doing your duty, you're defending yourself. And when people with heavy weapons start shooting defenseless civilians who pose no threat, when there are no military facilities or anything else nearby, what can you call that? And how can this be explained? And it is clear that on pain of death he shoots at civilians because he was ordered to do so...
Any war, wherever it is, is wrong. I understand that now you can blame the specific people who gave the orders, who did this — they have their justification, their vision. But you know, they say: who is to blame for this? I'll put it this way: everyone. All the citizens of this planet are to blame for the fact that wars are happening, in fact they are to blame, every one of us...
When it doesn't concern us, that somewhere someone dies and somewhere someone is killed, we are indifferent to it, we do nothing — it means we contribute with our inaction to the killing of people, innocent, innocent civilians. That's right. When we can do something, but we don't do it, then we are what? We're encouraging these murders. And here, shall we say, is where the truth lies. It's hard, but it's fair. Even Jesus Christ said on this subject (but it's close for Christians) that the world would be divided into sheep and goats. Just as concerning both helping and doing nothing, and everything else. We cannot, cannot be silent, we cannot do nothing, otherwise we literally turn ourselves into goats by our inaction, because we are supposedly not concerned. But doesn't it concern us?
...there is always a justification for everything; there is always something to justify, especially our own inaction. When we are silent, evil multiplies. And if we, as people all over the world, said "no," all evil would cease.
From "About Events and People" video
We always have the opportunity to stop and make a choice in favor of the true self, in favor of the Spiritual World. And a person's attention plays the most important role in this choice, because it is the life energy and is intended to ensure that person in his lifetime acquires eternal Life. But the system does not benefit from it at all. That is why there are people who often steal our attention (life force) unknowingly as guides of the system, becoming energy vampires. This always entails that they turn out to be dead while still alive.
Active conductors of the system are, for example, magicians, who redirect a person's attention (life force) into the system in exchange for empty material desires. In fact, the person who turned to a magician pays for his own stupidity with his life.
Or athletes, who, during major sporting events, bring a large number of people to their emotions. Often athletes resort to magic in its various forms to ensure that the victory goes to them. It seems harmless to us, we are accustomed to it, but in fact one pays for it with one's Life!
Or actors: when people cry or laugh during their performances, or rage at the concerts of famous pop-stars — they feed the system (the devil). It is no coincidence that in the old days actors were never buried in a cemetery (consecrated ground). They could be buried either outside the fence of the cemetery or along the roads.
Those who consciously take life force (prana) from living people, knowing what they are doing, entering into a tacit contract with the system (the devil) are energy vampires. And this is the threshold, crossing which one enters the "path of subpersonality" and knowingly deprives himself of Life Eternal. That is, these people become "dead" while alive. Why does it happen? Because they are committing a spiritual crime, taking the life energy and sometimes the whole life of another person. And that's scary. At first glance it may seem fantastic, but we all know how many cases of suicide, terrible accidents, usually at crossroads, and much more have occurred recently. When young, healthy people pass away, often in their teens. And it doesn't seem fantastic to their parents, who can't find an explanation for the terrible accident that befell their child.
There are petty spiritual crimes, and there are more terrible ones, when rituals of the Black Mass are committed, when people are brutally murdered. But their essence is the same — the theft of life energy (prana). And the punishment is torment in eternity as a subpersonality after the death of the physical body.
It turns out that all dead people (both those which are still in a body and those which are already in the afterlife) serve the system. And the system benefits from the living remembering the dead.
So how do we remember the dead?
We can remember, but how? How do we do it in the right way? It is not for nothing that there is an expression: "Either good or nothing about the dead”. So we say that about the dead we must either remember well or not remember at all. And there is a deep meaning in that. We need to understand that we can no longer help the person. He lived his life by his own choice and formed his posthumous fate. That is why it is important not to experience negative emotions while remembering the deceased because we always give our life energy to the dead.
In ancient times people had a different attitude toward death and believed that death for a Spiritually free person was akin to a reward, because the very meaning of death is the transition to the Higher World, the World of God.
In Buddhism a parable has been preserved in which the theme of the attitude toward death is revealed:
What do the Scriptures tell us?
In the New Testament, Hebrews 9:27-28 says, "As it is appointed for men to die once, then judgment”. No change in a human's spiritual condition is possible after the death of the physical body, either by himself or through the efforts of others. The Bible teaches that a person has one life, and his eternal destiny is determined by his actions only while on earth.
In Matthew's Gospel (8:21): "But another of his disciples said to him, 'Lord! Let me go first and bury my father. But Jesus said to him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead”.
It is said in Islam about the remembrance of the dead:
It is narrated from the words of Abu Marsad al-Ganawi that he heard the Messenger, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, say: "Do not perform namaz by facing the graves...".
And the Qur’an (Sura 9: Repentance — Ayat: 84) says: "Never perform namaz over one of them and do not stand over his grave, for they did not believe in Allah and His Messenger and died as ungodly people”.
The followers of the Islamic Mu'tazilites stand firm on the point that it is useless to pray for the dead at all, because everyone has made his choice when he was alive and is responsible for it.
So it turns out that a person stays most of his life in the illusion of himself, the world and gives his life energy to the dead, depriving himself of a chance at Life Eternal. The system is so arranged that we ourselves, without realizing it, feed the dead world, without even realizing what is behind it. So it turns out that this world is ruled by the dead.
In this article, we have tried to answer the questions which were put in the beginning, and we came to the conclusion that the answer to all questions is the same: the system's arrangement and person's ignorance. But man always has a choice: accept as an axiom what the system offers, or try to understand for himself. For ignorance does not exempt us from responsibility, neither in this world nor in the afterlife.
Now we live in a wonderful time when it is possible to separate the Truth from the chaff and make a conscious choice between Life and death. It's all about our attention.
We are what we put our attention into, and it is important to understand that by putting our attention into the living, we form Life Eternal.

Thanks for your lovely article. I love you my family. 💚
Hi, just bringing to your attention an error in the article.
In paragraph 5 under the heading 'The pharaohs and their secret', there is the following statement: "Subpersonalities are permanent servants of the system, and it benefits the individual to become a subpersonality after the death of the physical body. Because the subpersonality is the living capital that will feed it for centuries."
I draw your attention specifically to the part "and it benefits the individual to become a subpersonality", should it not instead read "and it benefits [the system for] the individual to become a subpersonality"?
Thank you very much for your concern and help. We will add it in the article.
