Throughout the course of history, the powers that controlled the world and the citizens within it have gathered to discuss how they would change, or update, the god or gods they wanted you to believe in, worship, and obey. From the pagan sun god, to polytheistic beliefs of many gods, to monotheistic beliefs of one god, times had changed and a god more fashionable, more believable, and more befitting of the times was called for and ushered in.
Your Own Personal Jesus
Due to our level of technological development, our new gods will be very special gods. Each of us will have our own personal 'Jesus'. For the first time in our history, we will no longer receive our directives of control second hand, through the use of media propaganda. Instead, synthetic telepathy technology now ushers in the new age of of government control. Each of us will now communicate with our chosen deity, a higher power customized to fit perfectly our predetermined belief system.
Through your internet usage and comments you leave throughout online social networks, a profile is compiled of you, and you will be targeted with a control system that you will respond to and accept. If your profile reveals you resonate greater with a benevolent extra-terrestrial as your 'higher power', than it is a government sponsored actor portraying an E.T. that will eventually contact you, give you advice, and influence your decision making, eventually controlling your entire life.
If it is an 'ascended master' with whom you resonate with, an ascended master will begin to send you communications through the us of synthetic telepathy technology. If your beliefs are more traditional, and it is Jesus, or God, or Archangel Michael that you better resonate with, then it is these religious figures that may one day introduce themselves to you, very gently and briefly at first, until you hang on their every word and live your life just as they want you to.
The choice will be yours; listen to your heart, your very own heart, strengthened through years of hard lessons, or a voice (a thought really, as there is no sound accompanying these communications), a strange silent voice that may be coming from anywhere, sent by anyone with any kind of agenda, to harm you, to experiment on you, to control you. Its all up to you, as is the choice of your new god.
