Week of February 2nd, 2009

The Obama Economic Stimulus Package is getting a lot of media attention this week, mainly concerning tax cuts to the corporations to placate the Republicans (who still claim fiscal responsibility; *gag**choke**puke* and pay worship to St. Ronnie’s “trickle down on the sheeple mantra”), wondering why the first 350 Billion Federal Reserve Note gift to the banksters didn’t have the desired effect (D’oh!), how much money should go to social programs like extending Unemployment Insurance, Medicaid, college loans (and grants) and infrastructure rebuilding.

Some of this money slated to go to NASA, a mere 600 million Federal Reserve Notes in the House version of the bill, to supposedly maintain or create jobs.

But there is no money for the human space exploration or monies allocated to shorten the gap between the shuttle decommissioning in 2010 and the supposed Orion ship start-up in 2015.

What money that is allocated to NASA is for “increased study in Earth sciences.”

Which to me means “anthropocentric global warming.”

Although the hue and cry of the above has been tempered because of the InnerTube chatter and exposure of the scam has penetrated the sheeple’s ears somewhat, the promotion of “green tech” continues unabated.

Now I’m not slamming the development of green tech per se, we should’ve done this a generation ago during the 1970s, but the global pharoahs deemed otherwise. Now the world economy is going through the “creative destruction” the pharoahs love to torture the shuman beans with (nod to Geez here) and there needs to be a new foundation to build the New World Economic Order.

What better way than to promote green tech, paid for on the sheeples’ dime?

The pharoahs don’t have to invest any of their own gold, because everyone is being thrown into a panic and are afraid of ending up with nothing at all.

They’ll be more than happy to pay for a “new economic sustainable” infrastructure that indentures their grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great granchildren, etc., etc., forever, via Obama’s economic package.

Fear certainly works wonders where control is concerned, a time honored tactic indeed.

So how does this affect future space programs?

For one thing, it stifles civilian rocket propulsion research because there won’t be any government funding, any development would have to be funded by private companies who are not controlled by the military industrial complex. But they may not be allowed to pursue research anyway just for that very reason.

Not only that, the development of any kind of nuclear space technology will be further stymied by the promotion of said “green tech”; the public has been indoctrinated by fear of anything nuclear, whether it’s bombs or not, despite the fact that advanced nuclear technology could’ve taken us to Mars over 20 years ago!

Many things and events are linked inexplicably in this web of deceit and control; one hand washes the other as they say. And many will continue to gain from our inability to expand out into the Solar System, and onto the nearest stars.

From the military-industrial-congressional complex that controls advanced technology, to the “professors” in the institutions of higher learning who spread the propaganda that humans are the only “intelligence” within 1,000 light-years (if not the galaxy), chemical rockets are the best we can do, radio telescopes will detect ET ,  interstellar travel is forever impossible and proclaim only sustainable “green tech” and population control will save us and planet Earth, those are the criminals we need to break our chains from.

If we don’t, we will sink further into Brave New World instead of Star Trek.

The Paranoia, and the Prophetic Genius of Philip K. Dick

The works of science-fiction author Philip K. Dick are the most authentic articles of modern prophecy since Nostrodomus.

Many of his works have made it to the movie theaters over the past 26 years, ‘Blade Runner’ (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), ‘A Scanner Darkly’, ‘Paycheck’, ‘Total Recall’ and ‘Minority Report’ to name a few.

Like most geniuses however, PKD suffered from episodes of paranoia and delusions, possibly from premature birth and a death of a twin sister when they were five weeks old. Dick often refered to her as his ‘phantom twin’, which was a recurrent theme through-out his writing career.

But Dick would say his illnesses were from the ‘visions’ and ‘possessions’ he suffered during the 1970s. Oddly, some of his best writing was produced during this time.

Throughout February and March 1974, he received a series of visions, which he referred to as “two-three-seventy four” (2-3-74), shorthand for February-March 1974. He described the initial visions as laser beams and geometric patterns, and, occasionally, brief pictures of Jesus and of ancient Rome. As the visions increased in length and frequency, Dick claimed he began to live a double life, one as himself, “Philip K. Dick”, and one as “Thomas”, a Christian persecuted by Romans in the 1st century A.D. Despite his history of drug use and elevated stroke risk, Dick began seeking other rationalist and religious explanations for these experiences. He referred to the “transcendentally rational mind” as “Zebra”, “God” and, most often, “VALIS“. Dick wrote about the experiences in the semi-autobiographical novels VALIS and Radio Free Albemuth.

At one point Dick felt that he had been taken over by the spirit of the prophet Elijah. He believed that an episode in his novel Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said was a detailed retelling of a story from the Biblical Book of Acts, which he had never read.[15]

In time, Dick became paranoid, imagining plots against him by the KGB and FBI. At one point, he alleged they were responsible for a burglary of his house, from which documents were stolen. He later came to suspect that he might have committed the burglary against himself, and then forgotten he had done so. Dick himself speculated as to whether he may have suffered from schizophrenia.

However paranoid Dick became, his powers of predictive deduction were not diminished. If anything, they increased with time.

One such item, although he initially wrote about it in 1965, is becoming reality now in this time period, courtesy of DARPA, the Pentagon’s best friend:

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVE: The Gandalf program is an advanced technology and development and demonstration program that is seeking solutions to the functions of radio frequency (RF) geolocation and emitter identification using specific emitter identification (SEI) for specific signals of interest. The ultimate goal of the Gandalf program is to enable a set of handheld devices to be utilized to perform RF geolocation and SEI on RF signals of interest to the Gandalf program. The specific goals and performance objectives associated with RF geolocation and SEI for the Gandalf system are classified.

The basic idea is that a group of agents or troops could carry a hand-held gadget that could pick out the phone of a specific person, and then target that person.

Philip K. Dick had a unique understanding of the military mind, and he called this one in his wonderful 1965 novel The Zap Gun. He called this process of targeting a single individual needle-eyeification:

“The final solution,” Febbs said, “in my opinion, in n-e weapons.” N-e: that signified the esoteric term, used in Wes-bloc’s weapons circles such as the Board which he now (God in his wisdom be praised!) belonged to, needle-eye. And needle-eyeification was the fundamental direction which weapons had been taking for a near half-century. It meant, simply, weapons with the most precise effect conceivable. In theory it was possible to imagine a weapon – as yet untranced of by Mr. Lars himself, still – that would slay one given individual at a given instant at a given intersection at one particular given city in Peep-East. Or in Wes-bloc, for that matter…

God, how clearly he could conceive it in his own mind!

Now my question is this, “Is this a case of art imitating life, or life imitating art?”

Is the US Government purposely using the genius of a dead science-fiction author to create the weapons of oppression to be used against its citizens?

Or was P.K. Dick a latter-day prophet, tortured by visions he could barely understand and was trying to warn a future world of dangers that only demons in hell could dream up?

Are UFO aliens really “aliens”?

I have written on extraterrestrial intelligence and the Fermi Paradox previously and how it often pokes its head up and throws water on the fire of ETI.

Mainstream scientists contend there is no direct evidence of ETI, now or ever, despite the circumstantial evidence of it from all over the world in the guise of credible eyewitness accounts from airline pilots, military officers, police officers and others of various professional backgrounds that require a sharp eye and attention to detail. Not to mention ancient accounts of various cave art, carvings and legends, oral and written, of beings that are superhuman with the ability to fly, read minds, perform feats of strength and fly vehicles of great power and destruction.

Their main contention is because according to Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity, which maintains that, “…material objects cannot obtain or exceed the speed of light…”. With that, mainstreamers argue that it would take infinite energy and many, many years for advanced ETI to build ships and cross interstellar distances. It would be more economical to transmit radio messages across these distances they maintain and thusly, we have SETI in its present configuration.

At face value, the mainstreamers seem to be correct because of our present level of engineering technology and social construct. The meme of “Because we can’t do it now and in the forseeable future, they can’t do it either” and thus, “they are not here” prevails in the media and academia.

In a way, I have to agree. If one holds to the Darwinian Evolutionary Paradigm, the chances that other humans exist is practically zero, even if there are other Earth-like planets in the galaxy.

But that doesn’t exclude the possibility of ETI. I invoke the words of Arthur C. Clarke in this instance, paraphrasing, “…of intelligences, there may be vast, cold and powerful, but of other men, there are none…”.

Are we missing something here? Michio Kaku, professor of physics at the City University of New York believes that civilizations a million years ahead of ours would be capable of physical interstellar travel:

One of the main reasons I was interested in talking to Professor Kaku was his openness to some of the more ‘heretical’ areas of science. One of those topics is the scientific investigation of the UFO phenomenon, something which he has gone on the public record as supporting. Professor Kaku said that generally UFOs were subject to the “giggle factor” with scientists, because most assume that the distance between possible civilisations is far too great. But he thinks differently.

“Once you imagine a civilization a million years more advanced (which is a blink of an eye compared to the 13.7 billion year age of the universe) then new laws of physics and technologies open up,” Dr Kaku told me. “For such a civilization (a Type III civilization, according to the Kardashev scale), travel between stars might not be such a problem.” ( link )

Kaku makes a valid statement, as it concerns the mainstreamers. But my question is, ” Why would aliens a million years ahead of us want to visit just to harvest our DNA in order to splice it into their own?”

What would be the purpose? According to Darwinian theory, they could be walking carrots or slimy advanced squid. Just because they might’ve come from an Earth-like planet, doesn’t mean they would be anything close to mammilian, let alone human. Their DNA, or the equivilent, would simply be incompatible.

Chances are, any interstellar probes coming here would either be VR, remote viewing or nanoprobes anyways. Less energy intensive and economical. No organics need apply.

If the culture has any organics left that is.

So who, or what could be experimenting on us poor lab animals?

Mac Tonnies, a writer for aboutSETI.com and his own blog Posthuman Blues, posits that extraterrestrial aliens aren’t doing the experimenting, it’s something much closer to home:

…the notion that advanced aliens — presumably thousands of years more advanced than us — would rely on kidnapping unsuspecting humans to obtain genetic samples seems singularly clumsy.

It’s more likely that a civilization capable of traveling between stars (or burrowing through space-time itself) would possess a knowledge of genetic engineering surpassing our own. Indeed, it’s tempting to speculate that a civilization only a few hundred years in advance of our own would have mastered the fundamentals of nanotechnology, rendering the need for “punch biopsies” and forcible semen extraction — let alone craft with portals and landing gear — obsolete.

This leaves us to consider that the “aliens,” instead of hailing from some distant star system, are in fact closely related to us and may originate much closer to home. Their frequent allusions to outer space, such as the celebrated “star map” shown to abductee Betty Hill, may be a subterfuge crafted to further our collective infatuation with “space visitors” — a fascination set firmly in place by the controversial “contactees” who preceded the emergence of the modern abduction epidemic by at least a decade.

(Former Ministry of Defense UFO investigator Nick Pope deals refreshingly with the contactee movement in his book “The Uninvited,” questioning the conventional wisdom that all those claiming benevolent contact with human-looking ETs were hoaxers and cranks. Instead, noting the distinct vein of duplicity that accompanies the history of paranormal visitation, he proposes that at least some of the contactees may have been dealing with genuine “others.” That these “others” made their first appearance as space travelers shortly after the creation of nuclear weapons, while typically attributed to social factors, may belie their terrestrial origin: If you lived among savages with increasingly destructive devices at their disposal, it may prove all too tempting to intervene, but in a way than denies your own existence at the same time it propagates your message.)

If we share our planet with indigenous humanoids — and I think the case for terrestrial origin is at least as robust as the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis — then it would certainly appear that we’re numerically — if not technically — superior. The “others” would be forced to live at the periphery of normal human perception, perhaps utilizing techniques analogous to recent breakthroughs with brain-machine interfaces and “mind control.”

Tonnies goes on to say that these beings often go out of their way to change our perceptions, saying that, ” …so many encounters with apparent aliens involve exposure to chemicals and needles inserted into the victim’s head. Sometimes close encounter witnesses are asked to drink noxious-tasting beverages prior to conversing with the “crew,” or subjected to imagery that can be ascribed to psychedelic “conditioning.” It would certainly seem that the aliens — terrestrial or otherwise — prefer to alter our perceptions prior to establishing contact. Given the selfish motives attributed to UFO occupants by researchers like Hopkins, the most coherent explanation for these techniques is that we’re being compelled to participate without the luxury of trusting our senses… “.

Perhaps that is why various shaman from cultures ancient and modern use psychodelic plants, herbs and medicines to speak with the ” spirits “, ” gods ”  or ” others ” over the millenia. Our perception to this very limited three dimensional domain needs to be side-stepped to converse with these creatures who may be more evolved than us, but perhaps share a common genetic history because the Earth ‘birthed’ us both.

Does that make the abduction and ‘alien hybrid’ scenario more palatable?

In my view no. Because of the fact humans have a sordid history of how we have treated our fellow creatures on this planet and our willingness to mistreat them to further our ends.

If these beings are indeed related to us, why should they treat us any better than we treat ourselves or others?

Real aliens would just pave the equivilent of a ten lane highway over us!

Human-Alien Hybrids?

The “consciousness” of artificial intelligence

One of the basic tenents of a Technological Singularity according to people directly involved in making it happen, is the programming and building of an artificial intelligence.

By “intelligent” I mean a “human” level intelligence that is capable of thought and conversation with a human tester who can neither tell if he/she was talking to a machine or another human.

Such a test for the machine to pass is called a ‘Turing Test’, which was first proposed by Alan Turing in 1950. Turing was a pioneer in computer science and was instrumental in breaking the Enigma Code during WWII.

However on October 12 this coming Sunday at the University of Reading, six artificial intelligence programs are to to examined via the Turing test to determine whether AI programs have progressed to the point where a human tester can’t tell the difference between a conversation with a machine and a human:

In the Turing test a machine seeks to fool judges into believing that it could be human. The test is performed by conducting a text-based conversation on any subject. If the computer’s responses are indistinguishable from those of a human, it has passed the Turing test and can be said to be “thinking”.

No machine has yet passed the test devised by Turing, who helped to crack German military codes during the Second World War. But at 9am next Sunday, six computer programs – “artificial conversational entities” – will answer questions posed by human volunteers at the University of Reading in a bid to become the first recognised “thinking” machine. If any program succeeds, it is likely to be hailed as the most significant breakthrough in artificial intelligence since the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue beat world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. It could also raise profound questions about whether a computer has the potential to be “conscious” – and if humans should have the ‘right’ to switch it off.

Professor Kevin Warwick, a cyberneticist at the university, said: “I would say now that machines are conscious, but in a machine-like way, just as you see a bat or a rat is conscious like a bat or rat, which is different from a human. I think the reason Alan Turing set this game up was that maybe to him consciousness was not that important; it’s more the appearance of it, and this test is an important aspect of appearance.”

The six computer programs taking part in the test are called Alice, Brother Jerome, Elbot, Eugene Goostman, Jabberwacky and Ultra Hal. Their designers will be competing for an 18-carat gold medal and $100,000 offered by the Loebner Prize in Artificial Intelligence.

The test will be carried out by human “interrogators”, each sitting at a computer with a split screen: one half will be operated by an unseen human, the other by a program. The interrogators will then begin separate, simultaneous text-based conversations with both of them on any subjects they choose. After five minutes they will be asked to judge which is which. If they get it wrong, or are not sure, the program will have fooled them. According to Warwick, a program needs only to make 30 per cent or more of the interrogators unsure of its identity to be deemed as having passed the test, based on Turing’s own criteria.

I like the analogy Professor Warwick uses in describing “consciousness” in the programs, “…conscious in a machine-like way, just as you see a bat or a rat is conscious like a bat or rat…”.

There is wisdom in that, if an AI program did become sentient, would it be ‘conscious’ like a human, or would it act like its nature implies?

I suppose it would mean whether one believes consciousness requires sentience, or that sentience requires consciousness.

Here are some links to posts by various people who have opinions and possible answers to such questions.

As for yours truly, I think consciousness is overrated, but the death of my ego leaves me a little unnerved!

The Modern Mythos of Roswell and Star Trek

The Myth of Roswell is one of those things that persist for eternity it seems like. The continuing litany of stories, lies, coverups, witnesses, alien corpses, dummies, weather balloons, crashed saucers, telepathic flight controls, secret projects and other plethora of supposed truth and legend have fucked up serious discourse of the UFO phenomenon for the past sixty-one years and probably for another sixty-one as well.

And just when you think the last surviving eyewitness to the whole sordid affair has passed away and left their “memoirs” in the hands of anxious relatives hoping to get on the financial gravy train that is Roswell, another pops up.

Take for example Matilda O’Donnell MacElroy, a retired Army Air Force nurse who had a “telepathic” interview with one of the surviving crash aliens from Roswell:

“…all IS-BEs could be helped to become more aware of the actual situation on Earth through the information in this envelope. This is why I sent these letters and transcripts to you. I want you to get these documents published. I want IS-BEs on Earth to have a chance to find out what is really happening on Earth.

Most people will not believe any of it, I’m sure. It seems too incredible. No “reasonable” person would ever believe a word of it. However, it only seems “incredible” to an IS-BE whose memory has been erased and replaced with false information inside the electronically controlled illusion of a prison planet. We must not allow the apparent incredibility of our situation to prevent us from facing the reality of it.

Frankly, “reasons” have nothing to do with reality. There are no reasons. Things are what they are. If we don’t face the facts of our situation, we’re going to stay under the thumb of the “Old Empire” forever! The biggest weapon the “Old Empire” has left now is our ignorance of what they are doing to all the IS-BEs on Earth. Disbelief and secrecy are the most effective weapons they have!

The government agencies that classified the enclosed transcripts as “TOP SECRET” are run by IS-BEs who are nothing more than mindless automatons covertly ordered about through hypnotic commands given by the “Old Empire” prison operators. They are the unknowing slaves of unseen slave masters — and all the more enslaved by their willingness to be slaves.

Most of the IS-BEs on Earth are good, honest, able beings: artists, managers, geniuses, free thinkers and revolutionaries who have harmed no one, really. They are no threat to anyone except the criminals who have imprisoned them.

This is why I am asking you to tell this story. Please share these transcripts with as many people as you can. If the people of Earth are told what is really going on here, perhaps they will begin to remember who they are, and where they came from.

“Is-BEs” as applied here mean “Immortal Spiritual Beings”. Here we go again, intergalactic aliens coming here to the hapless “Planet of the Chimps” as Nemo describes us at times, to school us about great spiritual values, wake us up to the great evil that has controlled us for 6000 years so they can welcome us into the great Universal Brotherhood of Light and Wisdom.

*Sigh* That and a buck fifty-two won’t even get you a bag of compost from a dollar store. Well maybe.

And here’s another interesting point I noticed about this little story. Looky at this symbol here:

It is the insignia on the uniform the ‘alien’ wore whom Matilda “interviewed” telepathically. It represents “The Domain”, the intergalactic organization the alien is a member of. It is supposed to represent the ‘unity’ of the Universe. Now take a good, long hard look at it, where have you seen a symbol like that before?

Bingo! And reward yourself with whatever decadent pleasure you want if you said Star Trek! Or to be more exact, the symbol of Star Fleet. Now I had no idea about this comparative symbolism until I read Chris Knowles’ Secret Sun website and he did a recent story about Gene Roddenberry and possible esoteric connections with the “Council of Nine” (The number nine itself has occult value attached to it) :

In early 1975, a broke and depressed Roddenberry was approached by a British former race car driver named Sir John Whitmore, who was associated with a strange organization called ‘Lab-9.’ Though unknown to the public, Lab-9 were ostensibly a sort of an independent version of the X-Files, dedicated to the research of paranormal phenomena. However, Lab-9 had another, more complex agenda- they later claimed to be in contact with a group of extraterrestrials called the ‘Council of Nine’ or simply ‘The Nine’, who had been communicating through ‘channelers’ or psychic mediums.

The Nine claimed to be the creators of mankind, and had informed the channelers that they would be returning to Earth soon. Lab-9 had wanted to hire Roddenberry to write a screenplay based on the Council of Nine’s imminent return. To help Roddenberry in his research, Lab-9 flew him out to their headquarters, located on a large estate in Ossining, NY. There, Roddenberry met and interviewed several psychics, and prepared the groundwork for his script.

Now given the supposed ‘telepathic’ abilities of the “Domain” and this “Council of Nine”, could there be a connection between the two ‘organizations’ and the now deceased MacElroy and Roddenberry? Did one influence the other? If so, how? A more fundamental issue arising out of this is “Is there such a thing as mental telepathy?” Can we speak to each other and creatures from other places by thought alone?

Did they ‘create’ us, or have a hand ( or the analog there of ) in the process?

Are they modern religions hoping to gain converts in this technological epoch?

Or are these things just circus tricks to fleece the public of their hard earned, rapidly depreciating greenbacks?

As always, I encourage the InnerTubes audience to think and decide for themselves.

The Biology of Science Fiction

Biology is one area of science I know very little about. I never blog, comment, use it in my fiction or reference it only in very limited terms, with the possible exception of when I talk about my chronic maladies in passing. Which is probably very ignorant on my part because it would behoove me to be at least somewhat educated on how biology works, especially my own.

Even the type of science fiction I read is influenced by my lack of knowledge in the discipline. My book-shelves are full of space opera, Singularity science, social science and even psychological sci-fi. I do know a little about nano-tech though, but biological nano, not so much.

This is just physical and mental laziness on my part, and according to Peggy of Biology In Science Fiction in a post referencing an interview with writer Peter Watts, it would be a mistake for me to continue to do so:

In April, Åka at Physicality of Words interviewed Peter Watts about the science in science fiction. Asked about a recent Con where the science panel was made up of astronomers and physicists, and whether he “get[s] the feeling that biology and biological ideas get less attention in science fiction than physics and astronomy?” , Watts opined:

Biology is the headline science of the twenty-first century so far, and I think that’s being reflected in the more recent sf to come down the pike (mine, for example). If con panels still emphasise physics and astronomy, perhaps that reflects the “graying of fandom” we keep hearing about; perhaps panels are disproportionately populated by the TwenCen old guard who haven’t caught up with the times yet.

I’ve read Watts’ Blind Sight recently. It is very good and engrossing, I couldn’t put it down until I got too tired to read. And yes, it had a lot of biological science in it. What I liked was that he made the biology parts understandable and credible. But he was good with the tech stuff too I thought. Or maybe I just perceived it that way because I’m a techie anyways.

Okay I’ll admit it, I’m a senile “TwenCen” old fart…er…guard type who’s behind the times too.

So sue me.

It’s no secret that biotech is a fast growing industry, from the genetically modified food corporations to the genetics of stem cell research and now more recently, “gengineering” plants that sequester carbon dioxide, this science is going to be a huge money making machine.

Not so much for the “little people” I’m afraid.

As usual, they (us) get stuck paying the research bills while working our Wally-Mart, Rotten Ronnie jobs and living in our luxurious Tent City condos!

Biology is the headline science of the 21st century

More quantum woo-hoo mysticism…

From Intangible Materiality:

If time is a spacial phenomenon of observation unique to the processes of consciousness that is pliable rather than a discrete or enfolded phenomenon that is mechanism in of itself….this is one of the many issues currently debated in the field of quantum theory. At the same time, it is interesting to see the enormous amount of activity devoted to the practical application of quantum field detection.On a practical level we see potential applications in the spectrum of energetic bands associated with x ray and radar devices, some of which have already reached the prototype stage. This prompts some admittedly highly speculative musings from this writer toward quantum theory in relation to Ufology. While this mechanism has not been identified as an agent in these events, one wonders aloud if that this effect is what we are observing. If this is so, a diplomatic luncheon with the delegation from Planet X at the United Nations may be more attributable to a fantasy more akin to Star Trek than a foreseeable event. The sociological aspects of the UFO phenomenon distract us from these considerations in a circular path, then also perhaps we are distracted by what we see instead of why we see what we see. Again little ink has been expended on this aspect of the phenomenon. The majority of what we read is what government agencies may or may not be doing as well as what was seen. This is a fairly narrow band of consideration, which over the course of time appears to recycle the same material ad nauseam. This makes one wonder what the shelf life of interest in this phenomenon will be. I myself have been guilty of saying “this may be the year”.
Years turn to decades.

I have discovered in the one year my blog has inhabited the InnerTubes that more and more individuals and groups have jumped the ship of “nuts and bolts” theories of the UFO/ET phenomenon and climbed onboard the train of immateriality, cognitive, quantum physics, consiousness, psychic and even spiritual explanations of why it exists. And exist it does, there is no doubt about that.

Jacques Vallee was one of the first UFO investigators who proposed that they might not be actual material objects, or piloted by ET life ala Star Trek. His radical theory on how the objects/beings are perceived depending on the current dominant culture, individual/group’s upbringing and knowledge base was, and is, controversial, even in the UFO community. Today the mantle is taken up by people like Nick Pope, Nick Redfern, Greg Bishop, Paul Kimball and Mac Tonnies. Tonnies take is peculiarly interesting because he proposes that “crypto-terrestrials”, beings who are native Terrans (or native in a higher dimension), ahead of us millions of years on the evolutionary scale, are responsible for the UFO phenomenon and other cultural “sightings” and “manifestations” in the past.

I put abductee/authors Jeremy Vaeni and Whitley Strieber in the Jacques Vallee category since they “slip” mentally/psychically into the creature’s dimension (4th, 5th?) without cause or control. Is this a symptom of being abducted? Are they being “summoned”? Or are they favored “pets” of the enigmatic, god-like crypto-terrestrials?

What do I think,  you may ask? My original take was the standard spaceship/ET thing, but I’m not so sure now.  I’m taking the “wait and see” approach, especially since France and the UK are releasing UFO documents.

Chickensh*t? Yeah maybe. I just prefer to wait for more evidence should some appear.

Some musings on quantum events

Project Camelot Interviews Richard C. Hoagland

Richard C. Hoagland probably doesn’t need much in the way of introduction to my regular audience. And to the mainstream crowd either, unless they happened to have made their home underneath a large rock for the past thirty years. His Face on Mars and Cydonian Pyramid City Complex theories have made him a villain, charlatan, nutcase, conspiracy theorist and conman to some (these are the nice terms from his detractors!) to an heroic anti-government/cover-up warrior to the alternative crowd.

In this instance however, it isn’t Mars that is the theme, but the history of NASA and the Apollo Moon Project that draws his attention. Along with Michael Bara, they have authored Dark Mission-The Secret History of NASA. In it, Hoagland and Bara contend that NASA is really a military organization instead of a civilian one, the astronauts that went to the Moon have been “hypnotized” so that they wouldn’t remember seeing artificial structures, the “second” space program, ancient interplanetary civilization remnants, etc., I could go on.

Dark Mission has been on the New York Times Best Seller List since it came out supposedly and proves that everybody loves a good conspiracy theory book, whether the claims are legit or not. Notice that JFK assassination books still sell? I rest my case.

Project Camelot is a “whistle-blower” website run by Bill Ryan and Kerry Cassidy that specializes in the paranormal, UFO themes and are explored via interviews through former or current government people who wish to explain about the above. I find the interviews fascinating, but interviewees who otherwise would seem credible at times, often go off on a tangent and talk about reincarnation, angels, demons and other metaphysical manifestations that seem to render their “revelations” irrelevant.

But that’s why they call it “alternative” knowledge, right?

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, J-Rods, Tall Grays, Short Grays and Nordics; The Other Side of the Fermi Paradox?

Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, UAFs, UFOs, USOs and other alphabet soup acronyms when been in our language lexicon for almost a century. Of course these didn’t become popular until after WWII, especially after Roswell, the birth place of the modern UFO movement that almost equals Bethlahem in relation to Christianity.

Many stories, fables, conspiracy theories, lies, disinformation and disclosures have been spewed forth for over sixty years by various individuals. Most of these have proved to be outright frauds and charlatans. Some have the appearance of credibility, but after further examination, their stories fall apart. But most of these have a few memes in common:

  1. There is a massive underground system composed of bases and compounds. These facilities contain labs, work shops for reverse engineering and secure “rooms” for the “Extraterrestrial Biological Entities” or EBEs for short.
  2. In relation to number one, these bases were constructed toward the end of the Truman Administration under the auspices of the “Majestic Twelve” document supposedly signed by “The Buck stops Here” guy himself.
  3. As the Eisenhower Administration took power, the remains and the one survivor of the Roswell crash along with saucer remains was taken to these facilities. Using the lone survivor, communication was established with it’s “government”.
  4. A meeting between Eisenhower and “three ET races” at a desert sight in the South western U.S. took place in 1954. Here things get fuzzy. The number of the ET races number from three to seven. Sometimes a “reptilian” race gets included. I noticed there seems to be a consistent theme here; the races are all humanoid and at least three types of humanoid are always mentioned:
  5. Tall “Nordic” types with large eyes. I’m assuming by Nordic they mean some derivative of Caucasian people.
  6. Tall “Grays”. The classic kidnappers.
  7. Short “grays”. Thought to be the kidnapper’s assistants.

A treaty signed between these “aliens” and Eisenhower was called the ‘T-9’, or TAU-9. The nine being items that the entities could or could not do. One of which of course was the number of people allowed to be kidnapped for biological sampling.

So what were we, or rather the nascent military-industrial-congressional-complex to get in return? Advanced military, or technology that could be adapted for military use of course. According to some people, our superior stealth and bullet-proofing technology can be attributed to retro-engineering “alien” technology.

So where is all of this information coming from? Surely if the U.S. government, and other world governments have been in contact with “EBEs”, there must be some kind of paper trail. Plus there’s been the bevy of sightings and abductions over the years.

Doesn’t this fly in the face of the Fermi Paradox that “where is everybody” if we’re already in contact with “aliens”?

Mainstream scientific community experts and skeptics scoff at all of the “evidence” that is given to prove that aliens are already here and dealing with us. And they are right to do so in my view. Given the common denominators between all of the “eyewitness” testimonies and the heavily redacted Freedom of Information Act paperwork that’s been released, one can only conclude that the evidence is circumstantial at best, disinformation at worse. And it’s a known fact that the CIA loved to spread disinformation concerning “black” projects at Groom Lake, aka Area 51.

I forgot to mention about Project Looking Glass and Star Gate technology. These stand out from the standard antigravity and Tesla technologies because they aren’t mentioned quite as much, but are integral to the “alien” story.

Here are some of the players and other items of special notice:

  1. Dr. Dan Burisch/Crain. Very possibly a disinformation agent. Supposedly abducted at age nine in front of his grandfather and turned into a genius by a mental transferance from a dying boy. Makes very extravagent claims of personally knowing a short gray, or “J-Rod” as the creature is named. Sources say his credibility is crap.
  2. Dr. Steven Greer. Founded the Disclosure Project in 1993. Also claims to be a “contactee”.  Among his other claims is that SETI has actually confirmed “many” radio signals from other civilizations, but is now being jammed by the NSA, NRO or other government agencies colluding in a cover-up. Another person suffering in the credibility area.
  3. Dr. Michael Salla.  Founder of Exopolitics and the Exopolitics Institute. Probably for the obvious reasons, credibility challenged also.
  4. Bob Lazar.  Probably best known of the above. Worked at Area 51 and spilled the beans about reto-engineering UFO tech. Any guesses about his credibility?

There are more of course, but these guys I studied more. All of the commonalities are linked to them in some way and all could be NSA disinformation agents. Or they could be giving their own interpretation of what they saw supposedly.

Personally, I don’t think we’ll ever know the truth. Not until Klaatu lands on the White House lawn and gives his ultimatum or the technological singularity/rapture happens.

And I doubt either are likely to happen.

A Random Act of Weirdness…

From the Tin Foil Dept.

If one acknowledges that the elites who prevail over worsening climate change, as intelligent sentient beings, are also survival-seekers, only an “off-world” context can explain the apparent illogical course of elites who are perpetrating the destruction of our planet Earth. Human beings need to wake themselves up to the numerous testimonies of individuals that have been in contact with various species of Extraterrestrials, and must also wake up to the experience of millions of people that have, at least witnessed apparent alien spacecraft.

The first hypothesis to be considered is that elites who prevail over worsening Global Warming have been persuaded to believe that they will be “rescued” from planet Earth, by some Manipulative Extraterrestrial group(s), in the event of a predicted catastrophic “tipping point”. Earthbound elites, may be under the impression that manipulative aliens will evacuate them from a destroyed planet Earth to an Off-world land of “milk and honey”, in regard for their having served their alien benefactors well in the context of an alleged greed driven alliance.

Unfortunately, any Earthbound elites should be aware that intelligent Manipulative Extraterrestrials are not likely to “trust” any human group that would “betray their own kind“. Any such human group viewed by manipulative aliens to be betraying their own kind, would likely be perceived as being by definition, untrustworthy, and may very well like be the targets of a longer-term manipulation strategy by any such aliens.

Hey, I thought of this too!

Goddamned manipulative aliens stole my theory and planted the idea  in this guy Chang’s head!
