Below is a transcript of the key parts of the video:

Why are people resistant to looking at the hard evidence regarding 9/11?

Marti Hopper, Ph.D (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

At this point, we have nine years of hard scientific evidence that disproves the government theory about what happened on September 11.  Yet, people continue to be either oblivious to the fact that this information exists or completely resistant to looking at this information.  So, the question becomes: Why?

Why is it that people have so much trouble hearing this information? From my work, I think we would be remiss not to look at the impact of trauma…

As we know, the horrors of what happened on 9/11 were televised all over the world. They were televised, in fact, live.  We witnessed the deaths of almost 3,000 of our fellow Americans.  We know that this had a very severe and traumatic impact on a majority of the population.   I, myself, cried for weeks after September 11.

 

A friend of mine, who is a psychologist in practice here in Boulder, said that her case load increased tremendously after 9/11.  People who she had not seen in ten years were coming back into her practice.

So, I think it’s safe to say that collectively, as a nation, because of what happened on September 11, we experienced trauma.

9/11 Truth Conflicts with Our Worldview, Causing Cognitive Dissonance

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Why do people resist this information – the information that shows that the official story about 9/11 cannot be true?  What I’ve learned is that, as humans, each of us has a world view.  That worldview is usually formed, in great part, by the culture that we grow up in.

When we hear information that contradicts our worldview, social psychologists call the resulting insecurity cognitive dissonance. For example, with 9/11 we have one cognition, which is the official story of 9/11 – what our government told us, what our media repeated to us over and over – that 19 Muslims attacked us.

On the other hand, we have what scientists, researchers, architects, and engineers are now beginning to tell us, which is that there is evidence that shows that the official story cannot be true.  So now, we’ve lost our sense of security.  We are starting to feel vulnerable.  Now we’re confused.

Our Psychological Defenses Kick In When Our Beliefs Are Challenged

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

9/11 truth challenges our most fundamental beliefs about our government and about our country.  When your beliefs are challenged or when two beliefs are inconsistent, cognitive dissonance is created.  9/11 truth challenges the beliefs that our country protects and keeps us safe, and that America is the good guy….

When your beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to that, our psychological defenses kick in and they protect us from these emotions.  Denial, which is probably the most primitive psychological is the one most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged.

It’s Easier to Deny the Truth

Danielle Duperet, PhD:

America is a powerful nation.  It has never been attacked.  We were confident.  We felt secure.  And all of a sudden, that security collapsed.  People started to be fearful with all of the rumors, with all of the news.  People didn’t know what to think, which is a very, very uncomfortable state to be in.  Eventually, our mind shuts off.   Just like when a computer is overloaded, our minds get overloaded.  We can’t handle it anymore and we shut down. It’s easier to deny it and move on with our lives.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

What some will tend to do is deny the evidence that is coming our way and stick to the original story, the official story.  We try to regain our equilibrium that way. Another thing that we can do is decide to look at the conflicting evidence and be sincere and open minded, and look at both sides of the issue.  And, then make up our own mind about what reality is.

We Will Do Just About Anything to Defend our Mental and Emotional Homes

Dorthy Lorig, M.A., Counseling Psychologist:

If we can think of our worldview as sort of being our mental and emotional home, I think that all of us will do just about anything to defend our homes, to defend our families.  I see that with people.  I saw that with myself when my brother tried to talk to me about it: “Don’t mess with me. Don’t mess with my home.  Don’t mess with my comfort with how things are.”

About a week later, I read a lengthy article by professor Griffin about why he believes the official account of 9/11 cannot be true.  It was a very well researched article.  I was in my office at the time.  I sat there and felt my stomach churning. I thought that maybe I was going to be sick. And, I leaped out my chair and ran out the door and took a long walk around the block – around several blocks – and just broke down.

I understand now that my worldview about my government being in some way my protector, like a parent, had been dashed.  It was like being cast out into the wilderness. I think that is the closest way to describe that feeling.

I sobbed and I sobbed.  I felt that the ground had completely disappeared beneath my feet.  And, I knew at some point during the walk that at some point I was going to have to become active educating other people about this.  For me to retain any sense of integrity, I was going to have to take some action.  I couldn’t just let something like this go.

 9/11 Truth Challenges Our Fundamental Beliefs About the World

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

Many people respond to these truths in a very deep way.  Some have a visceral reaction like that have been punched in the stomach.  To begin to accept the responsibility that the government was involved is like opening Pandora’s Box.  If you open the lid and peak in a little bit, it’s going to challenge some of your fundamental beliefs about the world.

Initial Reactions to Hearing Contradictory Evidence about 9/11

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Following are some of those spontaneous initial reactions to hearing the contradictory evidence about 9/11:

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

I don’t want to know the truth or I will become too negative and psychologically go downhill.

I’m not sure that I want to know.  If this is true then up will be down and down will be up. My life will never be the same.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

Fran, I refuse to believe that that many Americans can be that treasonous.  Someone would have talked.

Initial Reactions are Based on BELIEFS, NOT Scientific Facts

But these are BELIEFS.  They are NOT scientific fact.  But, these beliefs do KEEP US FROM LOOKING AT THE EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE.

9/11 Truth Contradicts People’s Paradigm

David Ray Griffin, Ph.D., professor/author:

You have empirical people who will simply say: look at the evidence and if it is convincing, I will change my mind.

Other people are paradigmatic people. They have a paradigm.  They say, this is the way the world works and I am convinced that this is the way that the world works.  9/11 doesn’t fit into that paradigm.  So, I don’t have to look at the evidence.  It’s paradigmatic.

And then there is a third type of person that we often call wishful thinkers.  I call it wishful and fearful thinking.  So, they simply will not believe something that they fear to be the truth.  And, I find that to be, maybe, the most powerful factor of people rejecting 9/11 truth and not even entertaining the evidence.

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

The Truth is Not Bearable

So, whenever we say “I refuse to believe”, we can be sure that the evidence that’s coming our way is not bearable and it is conflicting with our worldview much too much.

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist):

Denial protects people from this kind of anxiety.

A Common Emotion is Fear

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

As I thought about all of these responses, I realized that what is common to every one of them is emotion of fear.  People are afraid of being ostracized, they are afraid of being alienated, they are afraid of being shunned.  They are afraid of their lives being inconvenienced – they’ll have to change their lives. They are afraid of being confused.  They are afraid of psychological deterioration.  They are afraid of feeling helpless and vulnerable.  And, they are afraid that they won’t be able to handle the feelings coming up.

When Presented with the Truth, Those in Denial Become Angry, Indignant, Offended,  and Ridicule the Messenger

None of want to feel helpless and vulnerable.  So, we want to defend ourselves.   And, the way that we often do that is with anger.  Then we become angry.  And, when we become angry, then we become indignant.  We become offended.  We want to ridicule the messenger. We want to pathologize the messenger.  And, we want to censor the messenger.

Raise Awareness with Gentle Dialogue and Gentle Questioning

Robert Hopper, Ph.D. (Licensed Clinical Psychologist)

So, how can we overcome this resistance in denial?  The first thing is to meet people where they are at.

John Freedom, M.A., Personal Development Counselor:

One thing is that we need to raise people’s awareness about this – what I would call gentle dialogue and gentle questioning…  It doesn’t work to challenge people’s beliefs or immediately tell them “I know the truth about 9/11.”  A good way is to ask open ended questions that lead to open dialogue and discussion about it.

Danielle Duperet, PhD:

One of the ways to deal with the trauma is to find the answers.  That’s why I think it is of such importance to have a comprehensive investigation.

Pride is Another Reason People Deny 9/11 Truth

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

I believe that to become the type of country that we think we are, we have to face some of the things that are not as we think they are… Thinking that we are above such things – that it could happen in other countries, but it couldn’t happen here – that’s a lack of humility.  That’s excessive pride.  As, so not being able to see our dark side or our weaknesses is the most dangerous thing.

David Ray Griffin, Ph.D:

The observation that pride is one of the basic human flaws is absolutely correct.  This is especially true for Americans because we for a long time looked at other nations and said, “They are in such bad shape.  But, luckily we don’t have those problems.  We don’t have leaders that would do those things that were done in the Soviet Union, or done in Germany, or done in Japan… This is a type of pride that Americans have.

A feature of American history that makes particularly liable to this pride is this notion of exceptionalism – that America is the exceptional nation.  That began from the beginning as this country was formed.

People would say that there was so much evil in the European countries, so much cheating, so much lying, so much using the people for the ruler’s purposes.  But not in America! We have leaders who are free from those sins.  This has made 9/11 particularly difficult for Americans.

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

Everyone can make mistakes.  But, our ideals and our principles get us back on track.

John Freedom, M.A., Personal Development Counselor:

9/11 is One of the Defining Issues of Our Time 

This is one of the defining issues of our time.

Questioning is Patriotic

Robert Griffin, Licensed Psychologist:

So, we need to understand that questioning is patriotic.  Questioning is what we are supposed to do.  That’s our duty.

The Real Perpetrators Must be Held Accountable

Frances Shure, M.A. (Licensed Professional Counselor):

When we come to the national level, when something like 9/11 happens, we need to be sure that we have a real investigation into who the perpetrators are.  And, then we need to make sure that those people are held legally accountable. It’s part of the healing process on an individual level and the collective level.

Our Spiritual Origins

Rene Descartes, Contributor, Waking Times

You may think you come from some smart apes or from no-where, however, wouldn’t it just be nice to know the real truth. The only reason you don’t know is that ‘they’ have lied to you and you have never been searching for it, that is, until now.

Conventional philosophical, historical, scientific and religious sources should have explained why you are here, and what you must do to achieve what you were meant to achieve in this life. And to do that, you first have to understand what you really are, because you truly don’t know, do you? Don’t kid yourself, you don’t. What you look at in the mirror is just some ape-like-body in a mini skirt or a tie, but it’s not you. So, if you don’t know what you really are, how can you get anything right in your life? Your life is just an accident waiting to happen. And for many of you, your daily doings are totally accidental and most likely far from successful in achieving your life’s purpose.

You may choose to believe in the story of Adam’s rib, seven days, and talking snakes, etc., but it is not clear to anybody what is really meant by those metaphors. The many transliterations and misinterpretations you hear from the many “Orthodox taught” are varied and imaginative, but only the truth can help you understand. Accidental interpretations, wishful thinking, faith or metaphors you don’t understand cannot.

If the information doesn’t make sense, it’s non-sense.

Our Spiritual Origin

According to the real, secret teachings, the Universe was not first created out of matter, but existed prior to material creation in spirit form. Imagine a Consciousness similar to our own, except that this first Consciousness was boundless, a Universal Consciousness, or Super Consciousness. This is what religions much later termed ‘God’.

At some point, the Universal Consciousness desired to express itself. It began to conceive, to imagine and to express its inner promptings. And so the creation began – light, sound … eventually stars, galaxies etc. This was prior to the physical creation of the Universe that science records. This was a realm of thought, fantasy and imagination; no physical forms existed, only thoughts in the Consciousness of the Universe. The physical Universe had not yet been created.

 
 

According to the secret teachings, there came a point in this spiritual creation where the Creator’s Consciousness desired to bring forth companions, creatures like itself that would share in this expression of life. In order for the creatures to be more than creations, they had to possess individual consciousness and freedom so that they could, if they would, choose to be loving companions and co-creators. Otherwise, they would only have been servants of the original Consciousness. So within the one Universal Consciousness many individual points of Consciousness were awakened and given freedom.

It’s important for us to realise that at this point in our existence we did not have physical bodies. All of what has just been described occurred within the mind of the Universal Consciousness. Consequently, its form resembled that of thought or imagination rather than physical objects. In the very beginning we were individual points of consciousness within the one great Universal Consciousness. At first we were quiet and were content to observe the wonders of the spiritual creation as they flowed from the mind of our Creator.

In these early periods we were so much a part of the Creator’s Consciousness that we were one with it, virtually indistinguishable from it. However, it wasn’t long before some of us began to use our will and express ourselves. At first, we simply imitated the creator, but eventually we gained experience, and with experience came knowledge and confidence. Then we truly began to create on our own, adding new realms to the spiritual creation, much like a second voice adds to a song by singing harmony with the main melody.

All beings were made in the beginning, none came later, all are Godlings or Gods in the making. Some, by now, have reached perfection and again become One with our Maker, others will do so soon. This was exactly why we had been created – to share in and contribute to the great expression of life and to be its co-creators and loving companions. To fulfill this purpose we were created in the image of the creator: Consciousness with freedom, capable of conceiving, perceiving and remembering, capable of communicating directly with the Creator and the other companions.

Consciousness and free will were the greatest qualities given to any creation, but they came with equally great responsibility for their use or misuse. Of course, the all-knowing Universal One knew the potential dangers in giving beings complete freedom to do as they desired. However, the potential joy of sharing life with true companions, not servants, was deemed worth the risk. Therefore, each of these new free-willed beings would simply have to learn to take charge of themselves and to subdue harmful desires in order to live in harmony with the other companions and the Creator. To do otherwise would only bring chaos, suffering and separation.

Unfortunately, chaos came. As we continued to use our godly powers, we became more fascinated with them. We began to focus more and more on our own creations and became less concerned with and less attentive to their harmony with the Creator, with the whole. The more we thought of just ourselves and our own desires with less regard for the whole, the more self-centered we became, eventually perceiving ourselves as separate from the whole.

Of course, this sense of separation was all in our minds, so to speak, because there really was no way we could exist outside the whole because everything was of the Spirit. It was more a result of our sustained focus of attention on ourselves and our self-interests that resulted in a heightened sense of a distinct and separate self.

This was the beginning of trouble. It led to a very long fall for us, a fall that eventually left us feeling alone and separated from the rest of life. It continued to the point that we, who were actually companions of and co-creators with the Universal Creator, today come to think of ourselves as little more than dust-like creatures, descendants of apes and inhabitants of a planet on the outskirts of a typical galaxy in the endless and diverse Universe.

To know ourselves and yet be one with the whole was the ideal condition, but the centering of awareness on self alone resulted in a sense of separation from the whole. The more we exercised our individual consciousness and free will for self-interest, self-gratification, self-glorification, self-consciousness and self-righteousness, the more we heightened our sense of self apart from the whole.

The resulting loss of contact with the source of our life and the purpose of our existence was the beginning of darkness and evil, which is ignorance and disregard for the Universal Laws and Principles.

Without a clear sense of our relationship to the rest of life, many began to use free will in ways that were never meant to be. Others simply let themselves be carried along with the current of life, abdicating their free will to the will of others. In both cases, these were things that would make it very difficult for us to again be companions and co-creators to the Universal One. However, the Creator foresaw this potential and, prior to creating companions, created a Universal Law – whatever one did with one’s free will oneself must experience the consequences.

The law was not intended as punishment or retribution for offences, but as a tool for education and enlightenment. Thus, as we used our freedom, we experienced the effect and came to understand and learn. Interestingly, both science and religion recognise this law. In science it is often stated that “for every action there is an equal and opposing reaction.” Its religious counterparts are “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth”; “as you sow, so shall you reap”; and “as you do unto others, it will be done unto you.” Even today’s common knowledge expresses this principle in the saying “what goes around, comes around.” This is the law of karma, sowing and reaping, of cause and effect and accountability.

It was, and is, the great teacher of the companions-to-be and it is an integral part of the hidden teachings. Once this law was established, the Creator conceived and freed countless independent points of Consciousness within its own Infinite Consciousness and, thus, the companions came into being, each conscious and free.

What a trembling wonder it must have been in those first moments! Again, it’s important to realise that the companions were not physical bodies. They were like ideas in the mind of the creator that were given freedom to be independently conscious. As they used their freedom, they developed into unique points of thought, feeling, desire, expression and memory. Each was slightly different from the other by virtue of its different vantage point within the Universal Consciousness.

Each companion had spirit. They had mind and Soul. Spirit is the essence of life, the life force. Remember the condition of the creator before the creation; alive yet still. This is spirit. It is the living stillness in the midst of activity. So often we identify life with motion, but the essence of life was there before the motion. Spirit is the essence of life. Life in motion, or the power to move and shape ideas and even physical forms out of spirit, is mind. Mind is the sculptor, the builder who conceives imagines and shapes ideas out of the essence of life. Spirit is life; mind, the power to use it.

Each of the companions had spirit and mind. As they used their life forces, they developed experiences, memories, desires, fears etc. This caused their uniqueness; each had its own collection of experiences and aspirations; each its own story. This individual aspect of the companion is its Soul. Soul is the sum total of all that the companion had done with its free-will consciousness. It’s the companion’s story, its complex of memories.

All of the companions have spirit and mind, but each developed a unique Soul, because each built a different collection of memories and experiences, resulting in different desires, hopes and attitudes about life. Thus, spirit is the life force, mind is the power to use it, and Soul is the being that develops.

The creation then progressed from essence to thought, thought to thought-form, and from thought-form to particle-form or atomic-form; in other words, matter. There are many realms to life. One of these realms is the third dimension – physicality as we know it today.

The companions, filled with newly found consciousness and freedom, went out into the vast universe to experience life and to learn about themselves, the Creator and their relationship to it.

In their travels through the universe, few of the companions entered the three-dimensional influences of Earth where they entered into physical form for the first time. Multitudes of other Souls entered elsewhere in other systems, dimensions and planets where they took on other physical shapes and mind realities conductive to their desire, their needed experiences and their capacity to Love.
