This book is must read for anyone looking to expand their "mind", and get past all the illusions of this five-sense reality prison. Start connecting all the seemingly random, chaotic world events to see the bigger picture. It has helped me to expand my consciousness. Icke's other books were good, too, but I like this one the most. Why is the world so upside-down, messed up, and just plain evil? Everything will make sense after you read this book, so enjoy. Icke also has a well-developed sense of humor.

This was my first David Icke book and I read it during a power outage. It was very entertaining and written in the same way he talks.

Latest voluminous expose on the nature of reality, spiritual freedom, and the manipulation of human society and consciousness Feb. 5 2014
By Jed Shlackman - Published on
Verified Purchase
David Icke is a truly prolific author, lecturer, and researcher, covering some of the most advanced knowledge and information on the planet. His books tend to recap his prior works and then add on some new material and some more expanded ideas about how to integrate and comprehend what he has uncovered. He covers a vast amount of material (this new book is over 900 pages in length) and connects together a number of topics and areas of research. Many of the topics relate to conspiratorial forces at work in human society as well as metaphysics and occult science, showing how limited our perception of reality truly is. Icke has a good grasp of the concepts in physics and metaphysics which demonstrate how illusory and narrow our perception of reality is, and how consciousness/awareness is what underlies everything.

Icke goes through a lot of details about extraterrestrial influences on human civilization and how much of this relates to what he now refers to as the "archons" and their agenda. Archons is a term from ancient Gnostic writings, which refers to the dark/evil forces that hijack Creation for their own manipulative pursuits. Icke considers the "reptilians" he has long spoken about to be one major expression of the Archon consciousness, but not the only one. He describes how satanism and pedophilia are deeply connected to those dark power structures, and goes over how human beliefs systems are pretty much all "bollocks," i.e. full of B.S. that separates us from our true spiritual power and freedom.

Icke repeats his mantra that infinite love and infinite possibility are the only truth, with all else being illusion. He, of course, spends a lot of time examining the multiple levels of the illusion and how they function. In my view a majority of what he is saying is accurate, though some of his conclusions about how perceived reality is hacked and manipulated with a synthetic "matrix" version, is sketchy and uncertain, even though he does present intriguing evidence of how the frequencies and waveforms in our solar system may be tampered with by beings possessing advanced technologies. I also believe he fails to make a key point that as spiritual beings our own higher consciousness (soul, higher self, whatever one may choose to name it) has chosen to place it's energy and awareness into this reality game to learn from the experience - thus everything fits into a higher purpose and there's nothing to be feared. We can each proceed on our own journey of spiritual evolution, examining ALL of the belief systems that surround us and which may have influenced ourselves. Icke does a great job being irreverent and encouraging us to question all the trappings and institutions of our society. The hypocrisy and deception found in religions and "New Age" beliefs are exposed, as we're reminded to be discerning and take in the truth while tossing aside the manipulations.

Those who are patient and intelligent enough to read David Icke's books in their entirety will find lots of informational gems. Icke is not afraid to confront challenging topics and disturbing facts. It is helpful to not be too attached to any pre-existing beliefs or allegiances as you read his book. Also, be able to examine what he shares from a place of balance and neutrality - if Creation can contain all potentialities then why wouldn't it include some of the pathological things he talks about? Those things are just a small slice of the totality of Creation, though since they are part of the physical state vibrational world we are immersed in there are things for us to learn from them. When we fail to confront that shadow material we actually help empower it to control us from beyond our conscious awareness. Icke is bringing more and more people into awareness of many things that have been hidden. The current era that we live in is one of major revelations that will shake the foundations of human society. Icke is one of the more advanced spirits playing an important role in this process. He has his own weaknesses and misjudgments, yet he is definitely someone worth paying attention to for those who desire to expand their awareness. I would highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to understand the world we live in and to explore the deeper nature of existence.

Advanced Spirituality and Mostly New First Half Jan. 29 2014
By D&D - Published on
The mostly new stuff is in the first half of the book (Kindle Book 1), which is spine-tingling in the way it has pulled everything together, in the clarity with which it explains what's happening behind the scenes, in the practical way it explains what masters/gurus down the ages have said: "this world is illusion".

In my 2010 review of "Human Race Get Off Your Knees", I wrote: "Icke is one of the very few conspiracy whistleblowers who has developed a relatively advanced spiritual awareness from which he can provide a useful context and understanding of the material he has uncovered." With this book I think he's forged way ahead of most spiritual teachers. Using David R Hawkins' method of calibrating truth (see his book "Truth vs Falsehood; how to tell the difference"), this book seems to calibrate at over 900 (on a spiritual/truth scale of 1-1,000) which is close to avatar level, about as high (deep?) as it's possible to get in this physical reality. (Note: NOT avatar as in the movie but an incarnate divine teacher.)

In my 2012 review of "Remember Who You Are", I covered that in December 2011 Clif High of the web bot reports/forecasts had publicly identified David Icke as the Gandhi of our day. Apparently, Ghandi calibrates at 760, so I don't know (if the calibrations are accurate, that is) if Icke has now gone past Ghandi as a spiritual teacher? Ultimately each of us decides for ourselves, of course...

While there are a few repulsive, left-brain chapters in the first half, on pedophilia and the myriad benefits of torture and death to the parasites who have taken control of this world, it is a mistake to blame Icke for holding up a mirror to force us to look at their disgusting deeds. Truth is highly spiritual and Icke speaks truths.

[WARNING: left brain controlled skeptics should skip to below the second dotted line, the lowest bit covers the second half of the book, which is provable facts and much better suited to such - reading between the lines here (or anywhere, actually) will only confuse you]

So, for the open-minded, here are a few extracts from the most exciting areas, but you really need to read the book to "get it":


Our world is but a dream within a dream. It is not 'solid' as it appears to be but holographic (illusory 'solid' - as quantum physics has been saying but most "scientists" have been ignoring). Long, long ago (perhaps 200,000 years ago) we were genetically modified by the predator race to experience only the tiny frequency band called visible light. The genetic manipulation shut down much of the human receiver-transmitter system and re-tuned RNA/DNA to a fake reality. This created monumental 'physical' upheavals and a transformation of humanity's sense of self and reality.

Our apparently physical reality is a decoded projection. We now live in a manufactured illusion, a fake reality that we believe to be real - where balance and harmony have been distorted and truth has been inverted. Earth people once interacted within reality through the heart vortex (chakra), the Heart-Mind and the brain served the heart rather than the other way around as now. Our once heart-centered society has been diluted and distorted to become belly-centered (gut and survival chakras), founded on low-vibration emotions.

The reptilian brain within the human brain either wasn't there before the genetic hijack or it is far bigger and more influential than it was before. The introduction or enlargement of the reptilian brain allowed the predator race to infiltrate the human psyche even more effectively. The predator race is purely reptilian and they have forced the character traits of the reptilian brain on us, humanity (reptilians are extremely robotic and mechanic in their thinking and structure; dominated by intellect and with no creative imagination; incredibly and genetically hierarchical, like the caste system).

The predator realm is very close to this one in terms of frequency; to mass-control humanity we must be manipulated into low and dense vibrational states that connect us to their realm. Their world is 'biological death', the opposite of ours. Our unthinking subservience to the predators' perception and emotional programs locks the body-mind decoding systems into the frequency range of the fake reality - the Matrix - which operates within their low-vibration emotional band. Our society is dominated by fear and emotional reaction which generates "negative" emotional energy, while calm assessment does not. They feed on the mass negative emotional energy generated by pain, chaos, war/terrorism, death, destruction - and work hard to make sure we get "plenty" of suffering. They know that if they can keep us this way they will block access to the heart center and the love, awareness, insight and innate intelligence that will connect with 'home'.

The mass mind manipulation (programming) takes place at all levels including media/entertainment, religion, 'science', education, medicine, politics, corporations, finance, you name it. They incessantly use a major gateway to subconscious human perception: through symbols and images which are information fields that enter the brain through the sight senses - just as sound enters the brain through the ears. They bypass the conscious mind to implant perceptions in the subconscious while we have no idea this is happening. Being consciously aware, for example, that all traditional events (of "royalty", religion, etc) are energy sucking rituals blocks the effects and protects us because it brings the effect out of subconscious. Blind worship does the opposite.

They have been manipulating us into accepting a prison-cell reality in which we have less and less freedom of expression, movement, choice or even independent thought. Much consent is unconscious and comes about by inaction rather than action. We are building our own prisons: not opting out is giving consent, just the same as opting in. The current economic difficulties are just one part of the incessant centralization of power in all areas of our lives with the aim of a global Control System.

The predators distort and invert reality. Satanism, and its offshoot pedophilia, is their most powerful expression of control because it directly interacts with their realm. Their aim is to continue changing our reality vibrationally and atmospherically (you thought pollution was some kind of 'mistake'?) to become closer and closer to their reality. Transhumanism is their ultimate destination, where we are step by tiny step made into cyborgs like those in Star Trek.

They crow that "the more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it". We refuse to believe they can act in ways that we simply never could but they - and their minions here - are computer-like, machine-like, psychopathic parasites without creativity, empathy or compassion.

The Earth beyond the frequency prison of the Matrix (the speed of light) is very different to the one we are experiencing within the Matrix. Humans have the capacity and potential to expand their own awareness and see beyond the veil of the Matrix or at least see through the lower levels of the conspiracy. Not everyone is enslaved by the Matrix. Those who open their minds and expand their range of awareness can connect with the information, knowledge and insight beyond the Matrix and therefore see what others cannot see. Such people are usually called 'mad', 'fantasists' or dangerous by those aware only of the fake reality. They are also described as 'awakened' by those with greater perception.

A heart society is founded on love in its widest sense: laughter, optimism and joy is heart chakra. If humanity filled this reality with heart energy, the predator race would have to leave. Icke states repeatedly that this is their greatest fear and he also knows that it is inevitable.


While the first half of the book is mainly spiritual and full of right-brain-insights, the second half (Kindle Book 2) is left-brain factual, with mainly more of the same as his previous books. In this half, Icke presents fact after fact after fact on what's happening all over the world and where it is inexorably heading - towards Agenda 21.

Part of this long-term Agenda (covering decades, perhaps centuries) involves modifying humanity into a transhumanist part-human, part-machine cyborg permanently drugged to love our slavery. We will exist penned in high-density mega-slums (just like factory chickens do now).

Meanwhile most of our Mother Earth will be reserved for the .1% - the psychopaths who aren't fully human - who have already in the last decade manipulated the most massive transfer of wealth to themselves in known history. No one has been jailed despite blatant fraud in the trillions, and still we sit back and do nothing. (It's claimed no laws have been broken but isn't "do not steal" a basic law?)

Don't believe we're on the way to becoming a biological robot? The evidence here shows we're more than half-way there. "Transhumanism" by Farrell also looks at the various ways in which humans are being changed, physically, mentally and emotionally, into something quite different.

As he quotes several times in the first half:

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

If you are not already convinced of these truths, you need this book. If you are, you may appreciate the information here anyway, as it rounds up a huge amount that you'd otherwise have to be widely read to amass.

Some say we have the governments we deserve, the education we deserve, the media, the medical services, the justice we deserve... How about you? Looking forward to living in the Agenda 21 world, perhaps? You certainly must if you don't think we live in an inverted world...

So, it's up to us, the leading edge and the early adopters (that's all of us awake enough to be interested in this book, including looking at the reviews here), to lead the way. The more of us 'wake up', the more empathy we can generate (for ourselves as well as others), the sooner we can achieve heaven on earth.

David Ike is one of the best connector of hidden information on the planet. He makes sense of the insanity we are currently witnessing and reveals the Wizards of Oz behind the planetary deception that is causing so much grief for so many people. I highly recommend if you want to know what is really going on.

Not my cup of tea. June 26 2014
By G. Ridgeway - Published on
Verified Purchase
Ok, let me start off by saying that I am and always strive to be both skeptical and open minded. I purchased this book because I had over heard a few people I know talking about him, and after reading several explanations and reviews of his books, and some online forum’s I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a shot.
This is a massive tome, and I can say it is well published and durable which is always nice when you have to sink some significant money into a book, such as with this one.
Icke's style of writing isn’t bad, he is fairly lucid in tying his arguments and theories together, and the amount of pictures and side commentary doesn’t detract.
Why I have given this book two stars is, I’m sorry, don’t shoot me, but it is almost 95% assumptions, and 5% grey truths, granted the topic and theories which are being discussed, from the premise of what Icke is pontificating can’t be proven wrong necessarily because it goes exactly against what Icke says the "archons" are trying, or more pointedly as Icke believes, actually doing to us.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have no delusions that our world/s; cultures, governments and general state of thought are 100% accurate as they are presented that would just be naive, And I do agree with Icke's over arching premise that there are indeed some very FUBAR stuff going on with different governments and Social Orders.
But as the old saying goes, Correlation doesn’t automatically mean Causation. One example of this in the book would be when Icke has a picture of a Natural Rock formation, which when looking at it could, and Icke does, construes it as being reptilian in shape. Which Icke claims is basically the nature (reptilian esc, that is) of our Evil Archon Overlords, and that this outcropping (In this special place of his awakening) is somehow proof of their manipulation of our landscapes and perceptions.... Come on now...
Now this is a hard book and viewpoint to refute because to do so, it can easily be claimed by those who staunchly agree with Icke that your, or in this case my problem, is that obviously I have not had the wool pulled far enough off of my eyes, to see that every word that he is saying is absolutely true. Again, I would say that this argument is yet again naive.
What is hard here, is that if you don’t agree, than you are still “not open minded enough” to see what “is actually happening” as Icke would put it. Now isn’t that convenient.
If you buy into his Theories and believe them, than this is a great book, quite honestly if you have never read Icke, this is a book worth reading. I will say his perspectives on the Holographic universe, (not a new perspective) are interesting and can be quite thought provoking.
Quite honestly, I think Icke is reaching, way way reaching on a lot of what he claims to be the truth, and it’s just too much assumption for me. If you are interested in Gnostic Thought, such as with the Archons I would highly recommend that you read.
“Not in his Image” by John Lamb Lash, ISBN-13: 978-1931498920
To those that completely enjoy and believe what he is saying, I’m not knocking you, but this is just not my cup of tea and someone who is not sure on if they should by the book or not, helps if there are both great and not so great reviews to read and than way there choice of purchasing it or not.

David Icke may seem far out to some, but his work makes complete sense to those of us who wonder why things are changing so rapidly and why they are they way they are. It is a well documented primer for further study.
