Mutilations happen... and that's all I have to say about that.
Well, not all...
After several decades I thought military testing of a contagion or radiation (especially since they seem to mainly radiate out from the Nevada test
sight) was the reason... but then there's is SO much "high strangeness" associated that I really have no friggin clue.
I have idly wondered if this nudges some area of our existence here that is so bizarre, so outside our common reality constructs, that to begin to
understand it would spin one off into Lovecraftian vistas of wrongness and nightmare, but then I tell myself that the weirder reports are due to
mental dysfunction and lies, and the black ops boys are just doing research into some other, earthly nightmare disease vector.
However, though I am a supremely peaceful and loving sort of guy, I am of the opinion that better war machines are likely a very good idea just in
case something nasty lurks out there in the dark abyss between the stars... or between the very dimensions where something cold and ravenous could be
eyeing you as you read these very words on your screen, could reach out and do whatever it wanted to you, with nobody the wiser.
The sooner we all buck up and put aside petty differences to advance ourselves as a space going species, and as soon as we focus our fear and
hostility away from our fellows and squarely upon whatever is doing these (still relatively rare...as far as we know)' mutes,' or worse that exists
out there, the better I'll slumber... peacefully.
I don't advocate shooting first or being paranoid... but space is vast and almost certainly filthy with life of all possible types... to think they're
all benevolent, evolved saints is just silly.
ETA two other things are that perhaps this mute phenom IS to scare us into sanity by TPTB, or perhaps an evolved sort of being that is positive that
life is simply energy inserted into "meat suits" for a short time and otherwise eternal, thinks that harming the meat is no big moral infraction ...
as in doing these horrid things really are just equivalent to shucking corn, or peeling shrimp, to some greater purpose or dull experiment.
And to those veggie-tarians horrified over killing and eating meat... who's to say yams don't scream when being chucked into a pot, or lettuce doesn't
plead for mercy as your teeth tear it asunder? Life and the means to continue it is existentially horrifying.
