Yet to just dismiss it as harmless is perhaps reckless. I don't.
No, never met him.
where did i say this? dozens of people have been killed by the cosmic trciskter and thousands more had their lives destroyed
but do you know who he is?
I wasn't thinking of you in particular humanoidlord, more the general colour of the thread. Apologies for my carelessness. The "Cosmic Trickster" in the context in which you place it, I would interpret in this way; Apart from a few cosy enclaves, the unseen world all around us is one of violence and survival of the fittest and not love, karma and other niceties of the city states of philosophy. One might say that the "trickster" is just how things work. I could recount tales that would curdle your blood.
Not really, except that he is really creepy in the photographs.
knowing what he did to paul bennewitz, its okay to be creeped of him
the cosmic trickster has no sense of right and wrong, it just does things because he finds them fun, he has no idea of what his actions will cause
Okay, now that sounds like the Norse god Loki, except for the right/wrong part. A metaphor for what happens to people who look into things they shouldn't and outside of the herd mind? When people step out of traditional beliefs and try and go it alone, well, I have I've experienced that "trickster" myself. I know not many people survive nor are they successful for long. The world does appear to focus on destroying them. I remember reading a scifi book called Footfall where alien short-arsed elephants invaded the earth. The author went into the psychology of the herd mentality. In the story, the humans captured one of the aliens separating it from it's herd. I think it went insane until it went native and joined the new herd of it's captors. Could a similar scenario be the "cosmic trickster"? I know from experience that in metaphysical combat, people are very strong when they are a part of a herd. I'll stick to what I know from personal experience here, facts for me. A Catholic Cardinal is one example I'll put on the table. A Cardinal is a part of a herd; Catholicism. A Cardinal sits within a framework of metaphysical knowledge and his self extends through the Catholic egregore. He is very grounded and supported by his hierarchy and has a host of powers he can call on for help. The Catholic Cardinal is very strong. You pick on a Catholic Cardinal and you will feel the full force of the collective church. So to fight a herd animal you have to first separate him from his herd, isolate him. Just like a predator such as a lioness does to a wilderbeast on a wildlife documentary. Then the lioness eats her prey at her leasure. If the lioness took on the wilderbeast herd head on she would be trampled and die, so she picks out a weak one and separates it from it's strength in numbers. This is metaphysical martial arts 101. The Catholic Cardinal, once isolated from his herd suddenly looses all his strength and goes to pieces, you can then pull him apart at your leisure. In practice the more pompous the person is within the herd, the weaker he is on his own. That is the cost of group consciousness. The Rosicrucians too are very powerful in their group. That is because when one is initiated you add to a pool of collective power. Pick on a Rosicrucian and you pick a fight with all of them. When the church or Rosicrucian Lodge picks on you it is done as a herd, and you're trampled effortlessly and effectively. Egregores are like that. KPB spoke of his adoption by a predator in this thread, I also have mine who adopted me long ago. Our conversation is back some pages. So is the "cosmic trickster", rather then a metaphysical Norse god of trickery, perhaps a case of herd animals wandering off from the herd and being beset by predators? UFO experiencers become isolated from their herd by their experience (separation), there is no support group of common experience for them to fit in with and form a herd of their own to feel strong within. This is perhaps why most people come to ATS? I would guesstimate perhaps 90% of ATS are experienced of some sort of paranormal, The isolation from a herd would be complicated I think, by also being open in some way to paranormal experience. The two together would crush people and send them loopy. I would think the masonic lodges know this very well, they are very big on brotherhood. Extrapolate that to the occult lodges . . . . Humans like to think of themselves as top tier predators, we are even taught that in science classes at school. But if we look at human behaviour objectively we actually behave like a herd of very destructive animals trampling our way across the world. The Art of Separation is a Martial Art in metaphysical combat. The Art of Separation is also self defence from the aggressive herds such as the Pleidian New Age that seeks to draw in people with the concept of Oneness. That is why Wednesday opened her attack with the thought "We are all one" in our first encounter and why I did the unthinkable and simply dismissed the "alien" visitors and walked away. Most people would have said "Oh WOW! " and blindly walked into the trap. : ) Look at abductions as separation from the herd. With the greys, they generally terrify their victims to begin with, separating and isolating. They never go for big groups of people. I know this because they came for me one night when I was about five years old. My bed lifted off the ground and they bounced me up in the air like on a trampoline untill I was screaming. Then they tossed me sideways into a vortex of stars. The alternative is being zapped by a ray gun or something. Wednesday says the fear and trauma is the kinder of the two choices as the rays do damage physically. Maybe the terrahertz thing you guys talk about? Wednesday was there in the domed room where they took me that night in 1965. She broached the subject with me just recently asking if I would like to remember. She is worried about my rather violent dislike of folks who experiment on others. I turned her down because I like our current relationship and don't want to hate her. More can be achieved if I like them, my choice to put aside my ill feelings. edit on 12-1-2019 by Whatsthisthen because: shpelling mishtacks and readability Afterthought Look at the historical case if Laurence of Arabia. The guy was an operative for the British government who infiltrated the Arabs. He went too far and went native. He started to think and identify with the Arabs more then the British. He left his herd and joined another. We all know what the British did to him in the end. Going Native is an important concept. My little group of thirty or so hybrid greys are considering forming a sub-herd with my help, so too my group of (deceased) immortal girls. That is my agenda in all this, to form a breakaway herd. . . . . and f@#£ those who disapprove (grin) I know how to fight.
hmmm, not really to understand what the cosmic trickster is, you must first think that all those aliens you have seen are actually just one single being and that being is the cosmic trickster, its hard to describe really
