And another thing, i am being as honest as i can here, don't take it as if i am attacking you please, because i am not, i am just being
Of course not...... of course not.
I asked, you responded.
I feel that you are not being completely honest though, because EVERY experience affords us an opportunity to learn.
For example, What I learned of this post, is an aspect of humanity... and that is the need to belong to something bigger.
You seem to serve the "Truth" and wish to belong to that Concept.
And that is good, I agree with all truth seekers, and their need to find the truth in any situation.
I have learned that you do NOT like being deceived, and this should be obvious to anyone... as you are a very Adamant opponent to what you perceive
And I agree with you there.
In this case, i haven't learned anything, i don't see anything but lies, there is no message to improve my life here, there is no hidden
meaning that will awaken something inside or teach me a life lesson.
Yes, I see that you don't believe the "Commander", and this perspective is your right, and I have to say... all things being equal, I would
probably believe what you do.
But I HAVE learned, that sometimes, truth comes from what we perceive to be falsehood.
I suppose that an example is in order.
Like, take the Roswell incident...
Technically, you cannot learn if the incident happened just by asking the Government.
What you CAN learn, however... is through the ABSENCE of truth.
For example, the Government will not deny knowledge of UFO's
They merely deny to Comment about them.
"Can neither confirm nor deny"
And this absence of truth, is usually more telling, than a falsehood.
Do you see what I mean?
Also, sometimes one who is patently spreading falsehoods (willingly, and knowingly) will let certain truths slip out, due to the nature of their
Like the disinformation agents that spread 80% truth, and 20% lies.
They are TELLING the truth, but not ALL the truth...
Our mission, in seeking truth, is to take the "Twisted" version of reality, and reassemble it into something that fits with what we know OF
Even in fiction, there can be found truth, if you know how to look for it.
Let us talk about the possibilities of the Commander:
1. He is exactly who he says he is, and he is telling the truth.
2. He is a faker, and is just looking for attention.
3. He is a deliberate misinformation agent, sewing the seeds of mistruth.
In the event of #3, We would have to assume that he is trying to get us to eschew reason, in preference to faith.
That he is attempting to place a false sence of hope in us, so that we do not act on perceived threats to ourselves, and others.
Or, that he is information mining, to see who is capable of being swayed, and who is not.
So, the most prudent course of action, is to attempt to gain insight and knowledge from him, to verify what perspective he is trying to eschew.
In the event of #2, we should assume that they are making all of this information up, and are trying to gain converts.
So, the most prudent course of action would be to attempt to gain insight and knowledge from him, to see what his perspective is on the matter.
In the event of #1, this would be a monumental occasion to gain insight and knowledge from him, to see if we can gain any previously unknown truth.
You see... THIS is what I meant by "What did you learn"
And I see that you learned that #2 or #3 was the truth of the situation.
And while I can see your point, I am not yet willing to rule out #1.
Because either way... it does not really change my day, which path of belief I chose on this particular issue...
I am probably not going to mexico (As far as I can tell), I will more than likely forget the commanders predictions once his "Space Ships" arrive,
several years hence, if they ever do.
Just my 2 cents...
