The term The Blindfold is a metaphoric term used to refer to the limitations of Consciousness that occur as a result of the Toxic Socialization endured by humans living under the emotional, psychological, spiritual, and economic yoke of The System.
The imposition of The Blindfold involves primarily a Crown Chakra suppression/repression. Imposition of The Blindfold results in the lowering of the Consciousness Quotient (CQ) of the Physical Unit and a subsequent reduction in cognitive, emotional, and "intuitive" functionality.
In Old World, esoteric literature The Blindfold is often referred to as The Veil. Like The Blindfold, The Veil involves a reduction of CQ. Like The Blindfold, the Veil must be removed before enlightenment can be attained.
