I don't think that anyone can assume at this point that we can truly know any objective fact or prove anything. You and I or perhaps even all of us
collectively could already be within something (a machine, system, alternate dimension, augmented reality, something mass induced, a black hole,
surrounded by a solar system sized swarm of alien AI nanobots enveloping every celestial object in our solar system to terra-form it all or turn it
all into an even larger borg-like swarm to dismantle our galaxy, a matrix?) and it's quite possible that we would not be aware of it let alone even be
able to prove or disprove it!! Objective reality increasingly seems to no longer be a factor, main stream news along with the pentagon are reporting
daily on objects in the sky that are routinely breaking known laws of physics and in some cases even causality itself! Some of the unfortunate results
of all this chaos: there seems to be contradictions everywhere with people generally unsure of where they stand or in many cases what they think is
actually true. It is my contention that we might be being messed with but who by? Is it just other people, our leaders, the elite, aliens, demons,
gods, entities from other dimensions or even parallel universes? We don't know who is running this show... or worse what if there is no projectionist
running it... ie. no wizard behind the curtain.. We don't know what the rules or objectives are. We don't know if we can graduate and get out. It
makes me ponder whether Morrison was onto something with "breaking on through to other side."
What do we know: Our society seems to be going terminally crazy. We are experiencing a deluge of misinformation and disinformation. Many country's are
amassing weapons and preparing for all out war. People the world over are anxious and many sense that something is coming but they don't really know
what. We are "extremely" divided on many levels (wealth, politics, religion, race, language, gender, world view, objectives for life, geography,
choices in food, which science is true, etc.) There is division among groups that normally should have a lot of shared identity... this worry's me on
multiple levels but mostly because if you wanted to conquer an enemy what better tactic than endlessly consuming them with countless divisions that
isolate each person from every single other person. It would make taking us over quite easy. A planetary extermination campaign would be simplistic.
I can't answer any of the questions because I'm also stuck in this too. But I can sure see massive warning signs (imagine millions of air raid sirens
going nonstop with brilliant red lights flashing everywhere). Regardless of where we are, what we are in, who's in control or not and what is going to
take place... we are in very serious jeopardy... possibly for our species own survival. The best thing we could all do is calm down and find as much
common ground as we can and then collectively delegate large numbers to go ascertain as much as possible of any potential treats, evidence for what is
going on, ways we can heal our divisions, safeguard all the weapons of mass destruction from arbitrary use and most importantly we should put every
effect into fortifying every integral system to our survival such as: waste and water management, adequate food production, technology to mitigate
existing and potential threats or disasters, harden the electrical grid, and so fourth... Oh and we really should immediately abolish all existing
government and fire all the bureaucrats and politicians and then start completely over from the ground up locally at first then slowly expand
regionally and even consider possible global cooperation.
Oh my god I think I just resurrected Reagan's speech to the UN about an alien threat forcing us to embrace NWO globalism..
Ok I have no idea what we should do... please disregard everything previous...
If we don't do anything then the inevitable comet or rogue planet, alien armada, genetically modified virus, miss fired nuke, catastrophic solar
event, nearby exploding magnetar or whatever won't be what destroys us because we will have destroyed ourselves.
Perhaps we should just party like it's 1999 because there might not be a tomorrow...
