No, its witch behavior. Occams razor states that the simplest explanation with the most parsimonious (minimal) assumptions has the highest probability
of being true. Thus, an inter-dimensional demon-witch, or what have you, is clearly the more natural explanation, because....of yes, witches are
I feel as if many people at this site are so off the deep end in unquestioning acceptance of ideas without having any sense of what reasonable
thinking should - and must - be based on: some external observable reality, whether in the outside world or the inside world, so that it can be
communicated and made known to others. This sort of rationality - coherency - is about correlating a state of organization in the mind-brain and some
external set of conditions in the external world. For instance - things fall, and so an awareness that things fall would be a "correlation" within the
mind of a person who knows and recognizes this. Thus, such a person will avoid cliffs, edges, etc, as a function of a correlative understanding.
But with a witch from inter-dimensional realms, there are so many unstated assumptions implicit in this belief that one would have to write a 300 page
book to fully validate the rationale behind this assumption, a rationale, furthermore, that will have to deal with sciences like physics, biology,
astrophysics, thermodynamics, evolutionary biology, etc, all with reference to systems and networks of relationships, to make the
historical-sociological narrative more plausible.
Everything is just signs, of a "reader" - whether it be a molecule or a person - reading the signs, and assuming a relationship to the sign that is
best suited to its present needs. Thus, If everything works this way, the intrinsic symbolism of occultic rites seems less ridiculous, and in fact,
quite plausible. We are made by a systems of signs (molecules) that "know one another", and in knowing one another, create the body. Similarly, Human
minds are regulated by 'signs' i.e. symbols, that, like molecular signs (genes) activate certain "metabolic pathways" suitable to the processing of
the external sign. Thus, the feelings we feel are activated by "signs". External symbols are "signs" that correlate to some internal state - and what
we feel is the knowledge of that relationship.
The sad and unfortunate situation is how morally asinine so many people are. They decorrelate their body - structure - completely, btw, a function of
not being known with love and care by others (that is, motivated by a core of trauma that serves as a reference point for their movement) and then
mindlessly, in a supremely self-deluded, self-serving, and entropy generating manner, go about their plans "conquering" the world, despite the fact
that their way of being has no ending - has no completion - that doesn't consume the very structure which they cannibalize upon - the Earth.
It's intrinsic to their structure: they depend upon a constant influx of "fun" - of some external world or situation to dominate - to keep themselves
entertained. To depart from this fixation would be akin to turning to a new life-source. Their enlivenment is far too rambunctiously extractive and
exploitative to survive on anything but the fun and games that geopolitics, war, and technology provide.
The even worse thing is, their transhuman dream is scarcely possible. Our computing power may never be sufficient to make sense of an organisms
imponderable organized complexity. We may always be "wishing", and never really coming closer to accomplishing.
But you know what is really sick? How sincere these psychopaths are to mastering matter - and finding an artificial way to perpetuate themselves.
Right now, China has passed the barrier blocking scientists in the west from experimenting on human embryos: changing genes to see what happens. The
logic of this pursuit is obvious: every stage will offer problems and complexities - yielding useful information, no doubt, but at greater and greater
costs as the experiments continue.
Say telomeres are as important to aging as scientists believe. Let's say they plan to introduce a gene (mechanism) into the nucleus of cells that will
produce a protein that leads to the production of telomerase (a protein) - which itself constructs the end pieces of genes call telomeres. Doing this
may seem "logical", but not knowing how the 3 billion nucleotides work together to create the human body, fiddling with them will be nothing more than
an experiment - one, as cloning tests show, are bound to produce hundreds of failures on the way towards knowledge.
Thus, embryos leads to fetuses, which lead to babies, which leads to children, and so on and so forth. Cloud Atlas paints the sort of picture that
these elites would like to bring the world - to a world where the human genome is endlessly tampered with - killing hundreds, thousands, or tens of
thousands of human beings - as a way to bring about the information from matter that will allow them to live forever.
Yet, its not likely ever to go anywhere. To really extend the human lifespan may have more to do with relational-interpersonal dynamics i.e. internal
phenomenon - and that an effort to conquer things from the outside is a computational nightmare - a catastrophe in complexity - which may always
surpass our power to deduce.
Thus, it'll be an experiment in pure evil - vanity, futility - and to what end? There's no way for us to outdo nature - yet the prometheans - the
fausts - apparently want to prove the archetypal myth correct, and learn for themselves the ancient addage: pride cometh before the fall.
