Here is the conclusion of Bruce Duensing’s Atlantis/Antarctica with the take that “Atlantis is and has been, in of itself, a point of psychological, axial rotation in history as noted, even it is only represented in Speer’s dreams, made of theatrical pasteboard and glue. Often such dreams of dominant globalization, of a Global Empire, if they are to be brought into materiality, require a certain consensus.
It has been said that Sir Francis Bacon’s 1627 utopian novel “The New Atlantis” is indeed the basis the Freemasons of the 18th century Enlightenment used when forming the government of the United States of America; “…an ideal land where “generosity and enlightenment, dignity and splendor, piety and public spirit” were the commonly held qualities of the inhabitants …”.
So one can make an argument that the US was meant to be “The New Atlantis” instead of the continent of Antarctica, but as Bruce writes, “If metaphor is a script and the changing of actors in set roles is but an innovation within an aim, then the persistence of memory is the role of recognition in the play, and the stage dressing is but a nod to taste as nurtured by the role of cultural anthropology.In this we leave the safety of the imaginal realm to experience what it has wrought.Here there are no vague phantoms or abstracted realities, but there is a chill wind that hastens the stakes of this waking dream, or shall we say, a case of recurrence in the formulations of an ancient quest?”
In a sense, consensus perception is always reality.
Jung would approve.
From the Project Camelot site:
In February 2009 I [Bill Ryan] was approached by a remarkable and very brave young lady who was present in the room when the decision was made to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93 over Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on the morning of 9/11: 11th September, 2001. In this 45 minute audio interview, this very courageous woman tells her story in detail.The audio begins with a sequence of critical extracts which we have portrayed dramatically to illustrate the significance of the story. We’re aware of the sensitivity and emotional import of this subject to millions of patriotic Americans, including many in the military, and we respect that fully. For obvious reasons, Elizabeth Nelson is not this woman’s real name, but the account you will hear is totally authentic.As you listen to her testimony, consider the complexities of the events of that day, and the many good people who were caught up in them, seeking only to do the best for their country, quite unaware of what the real truth might be behind the scenes.
I personally haven’t heard the interview, but I have it from an independent source (this was just after the event) that is could very well be true.
