In more recent times the idea of Zombies have captivated the American mainstream. From TV shows like the Walking Dead to movies like World War Z, it would seem that audiences, or movie makers, truly enjoy the idea of being frightened by undead humans coming to eat you alive and make you into one of them. Forever living a life solely based upon eating your next meal of flesh, and converting others to the walking dead.
There's a much larger symbolic meaning to this entire story however. These modern zombies are a representation of the sleeping masses. Individuals who are not living out their lives to their highest joys and excitements but instead who are simply living for their next meal; paycheck to paycheck.
Our would-be masters keep the masses in a form of desperation, where consciousness does not have a space to grow. The aim is to stifle the masses to keep a select few in power. Zombies, or the walking dead, have no higher mind functions they only live out their primal desires (fear based fight or flight), sound familiar? These "zombies" also are past dead, with their bodies already decaying as they attempt in any way to meet those needs.
Again we can see this being directly paralleled in modern society in the United States where millions of suppressants and other types of drugs literally put people in a half dead state on a daily basis.
More over, per Mark Passio, whom worked directly with these same dark occultists, they refer to the sleeping masses as 'the dead' and literally believe they are ethically handling the affairs on earth because of their status as 'dead people.' The status of being "dead" is a personal choice. Are you giving up your creative powers and responsibility to another, are you living your life with out acknowledging your actions have an impact on the entire universe? If so, they think of you as dead, and only true sovereignty will elevate you to the status of the living.
The Key concept here being, once you step into your full sovereign status as a co-creator, and begin to act with full responsibility and liability, then you cease to be dead, and you are now amoungst the living and awakened. It requires an act of free will, a choice to stop thinking like a victim and start empowering yourself with knowledge and caring.
