Delusion is proven an effective commodity over the course of time, gives an absolute authority to whom ever utilizes it, and total control over the delusional ones. Delusion enables one to mobilize millions just with delusion, and that’s not far from your imagination. You can simply find that religion devotees mostly live on delusion, promises of a utopian life after death, or rewards in exchange for sacrifice, rewards that only live in the minds of the followers. The reader will perceive this as an attack on religion, but the fact is, we are trying to put things into their right prospective, and since ISIL was formed from within Islam, all that ISIL has to offer is paradise, and paradise is a delusion, and the reason to believe it is a delusion is because it is invisible, impalpable and unknown, and for anyone says the contrary has to provide one single proof of its existence, or what this paradise is about or the rewards the promised ones will get.
Imagination is not bad in itself, but when it causes death and encourages any acts of violence and the killing of others in the name of whatever delusion one is hypnotized with, then it is all evil. The imagination we should be seeking is not what ISIL is promoting, but what Einstein once described: “imagination is far more important than knowledge”, for knowledge is possible for everyone to acquire, but it is the imagination that employs knowledge to reach the truth.
As for delusion, Robert L. Solso defined it in his book “Cognitive Psychology ” as: “It is a deformation to the senses that exposes how the brain organizes and interprets the sensual excitement, then the delusion create a different reality for the delusional”, and that is exactly where ISIL plays its game.
ISIL has this authority, the authority of delusion, and its followers feel great deal of comfort ISIL’s delusion, because it gives them the feeling of power and ascendancy without them knowing that they themselves are influenced by a higher authority that directs them.
ISIL is twiddling with its followers’ minds through its promises to invade Rome, the white house, Mecca and other places. Also it promises them to mess around at the Ampatrum Falvium, or The Colosseum in Rome. Of course, such a feeling and delusion will empowers the followers and gives them the feeling of power and ascendency, and will forget that ISIL is just a group of criminals because his senses, mind and consciousness are disabled.
ISIL members discuss among their selves about ways to invade Rome and plan on how to invade it, there, where their wild imagination start to create stories of pre-Rome and post-Rome, they get high on the idea itself. Just like a heroine addict, this is how the delosionals interact with their with the stories that resonates with the common people’s imagination.
ISIL can only control the minds of the peasants, and whoever empowered by knowledge and critical thinking will survive, or at least will try to break away from the ascendency of ISIL’s delusion.
While ISIL does not pay any attention to the daily life of people, does not care about their education, services or the reality they live in, it cares more about the delusion and the unknown it implants in its followers’ minds and thought, because it is the only one drug that is keeping its followers to continue fight with blinded eyes and minds.
