excerpts from "Children of the Matrix" by David Icke
Carlos Castaneda

Don Juan, the Mexican Yaqui Indian shaman, tells Carlos Castaneda the following:

"We have a predator that came from the depths of the cosmos and took over the rule of our lives. Human beings are its prisoners. The Predator is our lord and master. It has rendered us docile, helpless. If we want to protest, it suppresses our protest. If we want to act independently, it demands that we don't do so... I have been beating around the bush all this time, insinuating to you that something is holding us prisoner. Indeed we are held prisoner!

"This was an energetic fact for the sorcerers of ancient Mexico ... They took us over because we are food for them, and they squeeze us mercilessly because we are their sustenance. just as we rear chickens in chicken coops, the predators rear us in human coops, humaneros. Therefore, their food is always available to them."

"No, no, no, no," [Carlos replies] "This is absurd don Juan. What you're saying is something monstrous. It simply can't be true, for sorcerers or for average men, or for anyone."

"Why not?" don Juan asked calmly. "Why not? Because it infuriates you? ... You haven't heard all the claims yet. I want to appeal to your analytical mind. Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradictions between the intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behaviour. Sorcerers believe that the predators have given us our systems of belief, our ideas of good and evil, our social mores. They are the ones who set up our hopes and expectations and dreams of success or failure. They have given us covetousness, greed, and cowardice. It is the predators who make us complacent, routinary, and egomaniacal."

"'But how can they do this, don Juan? [Carlos] asked, somehow angered further by what [don Juan] was saying. "'Do they whisper all that in our ears while we are asleep?"

"'No, they don't do it that way. That's idiotic!" don Juan said, smiling. "They are infinitely more efficient and organized than that. In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous manoeuvre 

stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous manoeuvre from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind! Do you hear me? The predators give us their mind, which becomes our mind. The predators' mind is baroque, contradictory, morose, filled with the fear of being discovered any minute now."

"I know that even though you have never suffered hunger... you have food anxiety, which is none other than the anxiety of the predator who fears that any moment now its manoeuvre is going to be uncovered and food is going to be denied. Through the mind, which, after all, is their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them. And they ensure, in this manner, a degree of security to act as a buffer against their fear."

"The sorcerers of ancient Mexico were quite ill at ease with the idea of when [the predator] made its appearance on Earth. They reasoned that man must have been a complete being at one point, with stupendous insights, feats of awareness that are mythological legends nowadays. And then, everything seems to disappear, and we have now a sedated man. What I'm saying is that what we have against us is not a simple predator. It is very smart, and organized. It follows a methodical system to render us useless. Man, the magical being that he is destined to be, is no longer magical. He's an average piece of meat."

"There are no more dreams for man but the dreams of an animal who is being raised to become a piece of meat: trite, conventional, imbecilic."

Castaneda, 1998


The more you understand about the reptilian mind the easier it is to see the AnunnakiIlluminati at work in our society across the centuries. They have distinct character traits and they are seeking to make humans the same. These reptilian characteristics and their connection to the human brain are fundamental to the perpetuation of the illusions I call the Matrix. For those who, understandably, find even the idea of a reptilian race to be unimaginable, never mind the shapeshifting, I repeat the words of cosmologist Carl Sagan: "There are more potential combinations of DNA [physical forms] than there are atoms in the universe." Far from it being impossible for such a race to emerge, it would be more surprising if it had not. Studies have suggested that if the dinosaurs had survived, and some may have done so within the Earth, they would have evolved a reptilian humanoid form by now. Dale Russell, the senior palaeontologist at North Carolina University, was asked by the US space agency NASA to produce a report on what extraterrestrial life might look like. He evolved the Troodon dinosaur in line with genetic changes over millions of years and created a model of a being he called a dinosauroid. It was a reptilian humanoid and identical to those that abductees and others have claimed to see. There is so much more to know about the dinosaurs. After all, their existence was only discovered by scientists in the 1880s. Credo Mutwa and others say that reptilians, originated on this planet and were driven off before returning to claim what they believe is rightfully theirs. Maybe, maybe not. We only have their word for that and their word does not seem to be worth a lot. But this planet certainly has an enormous reptilian history. While I was writing this book, it was revealed that the fossil of a reptile that walked on two legs had been found in a German quarry in rock estimated to be at least 300 million years old. The find demolished previous scientific belief on reptilian evolution. Dinosaurs were not, as believed, the first reptiles to run on two legs. This newlydiscovered biped, Eudibamus cursoris, was a reptile unrelated to the later dinosaurs. The Eudibamus skeletal structure suggests that it could run swiftly, probably standing up on its toes, with its forelimbs swinging in a pendulum fashion. This is similar to the posture adopted by running humans, say the US, Canadian and German scientists. Researcher Alan Walton has compiled a large amount of background to the reptilian presence on Earth. He says:

"Aside from reports and even photos of human footprints found fossilized inside of dinosaurian prints, suggesting a common existence  I discovered some interesting biological facts concerning 'reptilians'. It seems that biologists agree that snakes ultimately mutated from lizards, and lizards from the larger 'thunder lizards' or dinosaurs of ancient times. And what was the earliest dinosaur discovered? Well the two contenders are the Eoraptor (which gave rise to the very cunning and dexterous Velociraptors as depicted in the Jurassic Park movies) and a similar saurian biped which walked upright like a man, about the size of a human being, and with hands that were ideal for grabbing and ripping flesh, the herrerasaurus: both were meateaters, however there are enough differences and similarities between Eoraptor and Herrerasaurus to suggest that they had a common ancestor a 'few branches down' the saurian tree."

The most ancient part of the brain is known by scientists as the Rcomplex or reptilian brain" (Figure 46). It is the most obvious remnant of our reptilian genetic history, apart from those who are still born with tails. This reptilian brain or Rcomplex is vital to understanding the ways that the Illuminati manipulate human thinking and perception. Most people have no idea of the reptilian heritage of the human body and its influence on our behaviour. Scientists say that the Rcomplex represents a core of the nervous system and originates from a "mammallike reptile". that was once found all over the world in the Triassic period (205240 million years ago). It is believed this was an evolutionary link between the dinosaurs and the mammals. There may be other explanations, too! All mammals have this reptilian part of the brain. Now look at the character traits of the reptilian brain as agreed by scientists. I quote here from a fascinating Internet article by Skip Largent:

"At least five human behaviours originate in the reptilian brain ... Without defining them, I shall simply say that in human activities they find expression in: obsessivecompulsive behaviour; personal daytoday rituals and superstitious acts; slavish conformance to old ways of doing things; ceremonial reenactments; obeisance to precedent, asin legal, religious, cultural, and other matters....and all manner of deceptions."

Add other traits of the Rcomplex such as "territoriality" (this is mine, get out); aggression; and the idea that mightisright, winner takesall. Put that little lot together and you have the very attitudes of the Illuminati. Racism comes from the reptilian brain also and aggressive, violent sex, which the Illuminati bloodlines indulge in big time  ask US Presidents "father" George Bush and Gerald Ford, Vice President Dick Cheney, and the list of other famous Illuminati names I expose in my books. Can it really be a coincidence that the Illuminati manifest the classic traits of the reptilian brain while, at the same time, the evidence suggests that they are reptilian bloodlines? Cosmologist Carl Sagan, who knew far more than he was telling, wrote a book, The Dragons Of Eden (Ballantine Books, New York, 1977), to highlight the reptilian influences on humanity. He said: "...It does no good whatsoever to ignore the reptilian component of human nature, particularly our ritualistic and hierarchical behaviour. On the contrary, the model may help us understand what human beings are all about." Other areas of the human brain balance the extremes of the reptilian characteristics in most people, but they can still be seen, for example, in those who live their lives as a daily ritual, such as going to the same supermarket at the same time every week and having the same meals on the same days. Those with the most dominant reptilian traits, the Illuminati bloodlines, would, it seems obvious, express more of those characteristics associated with the reptilian brain and so you have the reptilian bloodlines of the Illuminati utterly obsessed with ritual. Equally obviously, the reptilians understand the Rcomplex better than anyone and how it can be manipulated. Predictably, therefore, it is through the reptilian part of the brain that humanity is most controlled and directed.

The human brain is in two parts or hemispheres, the right brain and the left brain, connected by a mass of nerve fibres. The left side is the rational, logical, and "intellectual". It works closely with the physical senses and can be summed up by can I touch it, see it, hear it, smell it, or taste it? OK, it must exist. It communicates through spoken words and written language. The right brain is where we manifest imagination, intuition, instincts, dreamstates, the subconscious. It is the artist, musician, creative inspiration. It communicates through images and symbols, not words. This right side is closely related to the Rcomplex. Reptilians communicate through imagery and symbols  just like the Illuminati secret society network as widely detailed in The Biggest Secret and on my website. They have an entire secret language based on symbols. This brings us to the most effective form of human conditioning by the Illuminati  movies and television. As Skip Largent says:

"All movies and television are a projection of the reptilian brain. How so? Movies and television (video games etc.) are all undeniably dreamlike, not only in their presentation of symbol ic real ity, but also in that humans experiencing movies, etc., have the same brain wave patterns as when they are dreaming. And guess where dreaming originates in your head? In the reptilian brain (although other parts of our brain are involved) ... The "language" of the reptilian brain is visual imagery. All communications transferred by reptiles are done so by visual symbolic representations, each having specific meaning."

And this is precisely what the Illuminati do. So how does this relate to human control? The movie and television industries are not only owned and directed by the Illuminati  they created them. They understand how visual images can be used to condition the population. In normal circumstances, the reptiliandominated right brain receives images through the eyes or the imagination, and the left brain decodes those images into thoughts, words, and conclusions. The Illuminati Anunnaki have intervened in this process, however, to control the human mind. Their aim is to disconnect the functions of these two distinct parts of the brain so we can be manipulated through the right brain while only being conscious of the left.

They plant images into the right brain (the dreamstate, the nonconscious) using symbolism, subliminal imagery, and pictures, while often telling the left brain how it should interpret those images. This is done through "education", "science", and the media. The television news is a classic. The right brain is shown pictures of thousands of refugees pouring across the border out of Kosovo while the reporter's voiceover tells the left brain how to interpret those pictures: Le. the refugees were fleeing Serbian atrocities. This explanation increased public support for NATO bombing of the Serbs. What later emerged, of course, is that many of those refugees were actually fleeing the effects of the NATO bombing. Same images, but a very different story or interpretation. It is the same with newspaper pictures in which the caption interprets the image for the reader's left brain. Often what the caption says is not the true background to what the reader is seeing. What is happening all the time is that the leftbrain is being told by external sources how to decode right brain images. What we need to do urgently is regain control of our left brains and decide for ourselves what our right brain images mean. That requires breaking away from the herd, thinking for ourselves, and questioning all that we see and hear. That includes what you are reading in this book. If it doesn't make sense, walk away

You will find that words like imagination, imagine, dream, and such like are used constantly in advertising. They know that if they can use trigger words that encourage a right brain, nonconscious, day dream state, they can access your mind with imagery and then tell your left brain how to decode it into conscious language

"I want that car"; "I think the police should be given more powers to stop crime"; "I need to take Viagra. to be a proper man again"; "We need a world government to' solve our problems". Television and movies are producing a fantasy world of makebelieve to open up the unconscious right brain and allow the Illuminati a secret access through that to the conscious mind. Children are most at risk from this and they are being bombarded with fantasy images to this end. In early childhood, the mental state is controlled almost exclusively by the reptilian brain and the purveyors of children's "'entertainment" like Disney exploit this knowledge. Disney is a major Illuminati operation. Music is used in the same way. There is nothing wrong with music in itself, and the same with fantasy and dreamstates, so long as we are doing our own decoding. As with everything, it is the way this is manipulated that I am talking about. And who controls the music industry? The same people who control Hollywood and the global media in general  the Illuminati. The biggest music operation in the world, for instance, is Universal Music, controlled by the Bronfmans of Canada, which also controls Universal Studios. The Bronfmans were a gangster family during prohibition and later owners of one of the biggest liquor operations on the planet, Seagrams. The Bronfinans control a stream of other media organisations including such deeply intellectual, mindexpanding, programmes as The Jerry Springer Show. Universal Music is the force behind the Satanic "shock rocker" Marilyn Manson. The Illuminati control the music industry and it is widely used for subconscious and vibrational conditioning. A former employee of the music corporation, EMI, told me how they had "supervisors" who ensured that only the "right" artists the "right" music were signed and promoted. The Bronfinans are a reptilian bloodline and very close to the Rothschilds. It is the Bronfmans, through various front organisations and stooges, particularly operating out of their headquarters in eastern Canada, who are seeking to stop me speaking all over the world. In accordance with the Illuminati method of controlling all sides in a debate or conflict, two of the most vociferous critics of Edgar Bronfman junior, the head of Universal Pictures, are former Bush and Reagan cabinet minister, Bill Bennett, the shapeshifting child abuser exposed by Cathy O'Brien, and Joseph Lieberman, the vicepresidential running mate of blood drinker and shapeshifter, Al Gore. This pair say that Universal Studios encourage people to be immoral! Is there no shame?

Manufacturing Illusions Through the reptilian brain, the AnunnakiIlluminati manipulate our perception of reality. This frequency range or physical world is controlled and manipulated from outside, from another frequency range or density, which I have called the fourth dimension. As in the movie, The Matrix, the "'agents" of this force come into this world to delude and manipulate us  like the otherdimensional Men in Black. They do it through direct manifestation, aided by the Satanic rituals, or by occupying and possessing the bloodlines that most resonate with them  the Illuminati bloodlines. Some of these "agents" appear to be capable of "miraculous" feats. But they are not miraculous at all. It is just that they are using a knowledge of physics and energy that is systematically kept from us. They know that this world is not solid, only that it appears to be. Everything from a breath of air to a drop of rain, to a mountain or a tenton truck is vibrating energy. Look at anything under a microscope, no matter how dense and "solid" it may seem to be, and you will see that it is just vibrating energy The slower it vibrates, the more solid it looks, the faster it vibrates the more ethereal and transparent it appears until its speed moves beyond our physical senses and it "disappears". Look at a simple spoked cartwheel. When it is turning slowly the spokes looks very solid. But when it is travelling at speed the spokes are just a blur and no longer "solid" at all. In fact they can even give the illusion of going backwards while the cart is going forwards. Optical illusions are just simple expressions of the Great Illusion. I have been writing for ten years that the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second, is not the fastest speed possible. It is only an outer limit of our frequency range, after which anything travelling above that speed enters another range, another density and we cease to perceive it. This is how UFOs and extraterrestrials appear and "disappear"', and how demonic entities manifest and demanifest at Satanic rituals. They switch frequencies. As John A. Keel points out, the colour changes seen in interdimensional materialisations are often described in "UFO"' sightings as the "objects" scan the electromagnetic spectrum. "UFOs often appear as a purplish themselves. It might be less of an illusion than humans because they know of other dimensions and so on, but they are still stuck in their astral illusion as humans are, stuck in the physical one. The Matrix character, Morpheus, says of the agents:

"I have seen an agent punch through a concrete wall; men have emptied entire clips [of bullets] on them and hit nothing but air. Yet their strength and their speed are still based on rules. Because of that, they will never be as strong or as fast as you can be."

That is why the Illuminati and their otherdensity masters have worked so hard to suppress our minds. They know that we are potentially far more powerful than they are if only we can free ourselves of their mind control. Their aim, in effect, is to keep us in a bigger illusion than their own. It is like the short sighted manipulating the blind. Within every human is a genius waiting to manifest. I never cease to be amazed at the levels of excellence that humans achieve in the whole range of professions and talents. Find someone at the top of his or her craft and you will be in awe at their brilliance. And this is despite all the manipulation and suppression of our potential. Just think what we could achieve when this control is dismantled. The climax in The Matrix movie is when the initiate, Neo, ceases to see the world as a series of "solid," people and buildings and instead sees everything and everyone as a flow of fast moving numbers and codes  vibrational frequencies. Once he reaches this point of awareness and multidimensional connection, he is able to brush aside the previously unbeatable agents of human servitude because he can operate outside of their rules and limitations. Symbolically he has expanded the point of his awareness beyond the astral realms to much higher levels of himself. Higher levels than his controllers can access. Once he achieved that, he becomes as powerful to the agents as they were to him when he was still in the physical illusion and they were in the astral one. How do we get out of this mess? We open up to who we really are and let go of who the system tells us we are. The whole Illuminati plan has been designed to keep us trapped in the physical illusion and therefore ensure that we can be controlled and manipulated by their astral illusion. This is why, among so many other things, they have done the following:

• Systematically destroyed or kept hidden as much ancient knowledge as possible because it contained the understanding of who we are and the true nature of life.

• Hijacked all the major investigations and searches for ancient hidden knowledge and artefacts across the world to ensure that nothing is found that tells the truth of our nature and origins and, if anything significant is found, it is never made public nor its true importance understood.

• Created religions to seize the minds of the populace, fill them with a sense of limitation and inferiority, and portray esoteric knowledge as "evil".

• Established "science"' to recognise only the physical, deny the existence of other frequencies of life, and suppress the knowledge of our multidimensional selves. This is done by rewarding those who repeat the party line and destroying the reputations of those who do not.

• Introduced the media to assault our minds with the reality the Illuminati wish us to have; and to attack, ridicule, condemn, and destroy anyone who threatens to expose the scam and the illusion on which it depends.

• Bombarded us with an orgy of physical stimuli and materialism in which success is judged by what you own rather than what you are.

• Focused the world and communication on all that is physical  money, winning the lottery, possessions, and promoting an obsession with sex as a physical rather than a spiritual experience. Sex based on lust alone holds down our frequency because it is a purely physical act. Sex based on love increases our frequency because it reconnects us with our spark of pure love.

• Isolated male and female energy, so creating the duality and preventing the fusion of male and female energy within us all that would create a third, potentially highvibrational force, and set us free of this vibrational prison, the Matrix.

• Filled our food, drink, medicines, vaccines, water, air, and electromagnetic environment, with chemicals and frequencies designed to suppress our ability to. experience our multidimensional selves and to block the channels through which our higher levels can communicate with the physical.

• Manipulated our DNA directly and through other means to dim this higherdimensional connection. The genetic code agenda that is sold to us so positively as a way of preventing disease has a far more sinister background and motivation.

• Held highly malevolent Satanic rituals at the planet's major vortex points to hold down the frequency of the entire global energy field  the field that we operate within. In this way, our own energy field can be vibrationally suppressed by living within such a low vibrational environment.

• Created wars and conflicts at all levels of global society and ensured financial dependency and insolvency to keep us in low vibrational emotional states like fear, guilt, anger, resentment, and frustration.
