My take on the whole Foreverman Break Away Civ Story is that its a bunch a BS.
That Astro was using the story as a vehicle to touch on all the nifty stuff the govt. is doing with advanced science and tech, being an engineer, well
placed to know about several programs, he was itching to share bits of his life's work. He needed a vehicle to indirectly bring up these ideas and
technologies. In the end he wanted us to think about all of this, dream about it, let our imaginations fly so that we can get on the road to
researching these technologies to learn about them for our selves. You know "sleep on it"
I think that the Clones for communication thing was a allusion to Secure Quantum Entanglement communication systems coming out into public knowledge
I Think the Break Away Civilization is more like a clandestine secret branch of the military that utilizes devices based on "break away" classified
physics breakthroughs. Probably for a very advanced space program along with tons of another applications that needed to be kept classified.. But I
don't think there is a literal break away society. It may be "like" a break away society but it still answers to TPTB in my opinion.
I think the whole communicate with people while they are dreaming is more about the upcoming technology on Brain/Machine neural interfaces that don't
require a physical connection to the body to achieve communication.
I think it's also possible that they are trying out various Radio Frequency beams or broadcasts on certain segments of society or individuals to test
out the technology. The RF's induce E and B fields in the brain and make people trip out n hallucinate if done in a crude way, relay data possibly
or other stuff if finessed just right, etc. Can test parts of the program on soldiers but you will probably need to test it out on unsuspecting
civilians too to make sure aspects of it works.
He mentioned the center light ( the red ones) are responsible for communicating with the subjects brain, or to relay data. The red light sure looks
like it puts out low frequency light. The three lights on the outside of a triangle look like they are putting out high frequency lights. Pulsing
between the two rapidly you could possibly create a Air Laser www.insidescience.org...
effect and aim it at a subject. What if they tweaked the idea to create RF frequencies with the Air Laser concept using those lights on the bottom
and then used that as an interface to electromagnetically induce changes in the subjects brain thus communicating data, causing hallucinations, or
causing the subject to not see anything at all (hint). He could have been tacitly going there with the Dream Harvesting talk.
What his end game was, honestly I think, to get us to do what we are doing right now. Discussing theoretical physics and technology breakthroughs.
As a form of disclosure maybe. Or just to get us to see what's really going on if we are smart enough to explore the allusions he was talking about
in his story.
As for Astr0 logging back on and talking to us. He probably got the phone call where they say "You are no longer allowed to go on this website or
any like it. You are to terminate all contact with the people who were talking to on these websites. You are to shut the hell up. OR we will be
outside your door with a orange jumpsuit, and drop all your pensions"
