Phew! Talk about paranoia...these threads have it in buckets. I take it then that 'Blue Beam' is an act of manufacture of the mythic 'Rapture'?
This, I can actually take seriously, because organised religion, particularily the 'fundamental' side of it, is awash with members ill with
psychoses and neuroses, driving and energising their paranoia to the cause of extreme acts.
Think about this. Science (I believe) is on the right track to providing understanding on the very nature of consciousness, though I think we are
still talking decades before it all starts to come together. Your religious fanatics will never allow such understanding to be made public. They have
a agenda concerning the so-called 'rapture', and they think they can force it, but it all has to play out as per Revelations. These people are
psychotic with their beliefs, and they will kill to ensure it happens, because you and I mean nothing to them. By holding a 'free' mind and voice,
we are failures, sacrificial as Satan's fodder...this is the part we are to play out for them.
Now, societies around the globe are under extreme pressure to maintain their lifestyles, quite a few of the necessities that provide their ballast are
running down or out. Fossil fuel, fresh water, and other esential resources are not as ubiquitous or as plentiful as we are being told. I think we
have far less of these essentials than what is being maintained (simply to keep the status quo). The Iraq conflict and the presence of western forces
there support this view, a conflict being waged on bogus reasons.
We have global warming effects kicking in more severley and a little more rapidly than what can be hidden from the public's consciousness...we are
all ill-at-ease because we sense something ambiently odd with our traditional climates in our own part of the world. Greenland is warming up and
thawing out rapidly, 'ice-shelves' the size of France are breaking off from Antarctica, and Siberia's 'perma-frost' is all but dissappearing,
uncovering vast tracts of peat areas readying to release collossal amounts of methane into the atmosphere, which is a more dangerous gas to have
there, because it traps the sun's heat far more efficiently than carbon dioxide and chloroflourocarbons. Our planet is changing, and we have
contributed to that change. There is nothing we can do to stop it, but if we act now, we can at least lessen the impact for future generations.
Sea levels are going to rise, and we are going to lose landmass to it. Storms are going to become more frequent and severe in strength, due to the
amount of energy in the air from the trapped heat. All this will drive large groups of peoples to migrate, which is going to create tensions
world-wide, wars will become more frequent, and the potential for nuclear war will become greater. These are not conspiracies, they are not made-up
fears, but actual facts that are unfolding each year, slowly and incrementally gathering pace. Throw into the mix religious paranoia, and you see a
race unfolding as to which disaster is going to be the first to claim civilisation...yet again.
I say yet again, because I think the theory that mankind comes and goes in jumps of near-extinction events is plausible. As a civilisation we are
morally bereft to heed our own concerns, nor are we spiritually altruistic enough to master our hedonism...we will allow our needs to drive us to the
very edge of the abyss, if not actually into it. As things become more worse, we will become more selfish and aloof with one another, and this has
already started against the weaker nations...we will cannabilize and culleach other.
I just wish I could gleam a hint of a silver lining in the dark clouds that have gathered over us, but I can't. I hate writing out these kind of
posts, but even as a sceptic on most things, I have a mind open enough to look at these issues. We have entered a dark phase!
