I have to back track.

There was a man that use to work at the same place I did a number of years back.

He has since passed away.

Everyone loved him, he was kind, thoughtful and intellegent.

One day out of the blue he handed me a book and said, here, you read this and think upon it, my gift to you.

That book was "Behold A Pale Horse" By William Cooper.

Yes you can get a free copy at 4shared.com. But hurry, stuff is closing up on the net quickly.

Bill Cooper was a former U.S. Naval Intelligence Briefing Team Member, reveals information kept secret by our government since the 1940s. UFOs, the J.F.K.. assassination, the Secret Government, the war on drugs and more by the world's leading expert on UFOs.

There are two types of people in the world: those who want to know who exactly is controlling whom, and those who are more comfortable taking things at face value.

What really disturbed me was the theory of the true intent of the government. Cooper's account of what the government is capable of in times of heightened alert is extremely relevant now.

It is important to keep in mind that this book was published before the attack on the World Trade Center because the US is finding itself in exactly the position Cooper predicted. Whether or not you think you might agree with the information in this book, I recommend any book written by someone who was killed for the purpose of silencing him or her. Be an informed citizen and know what your government is capable of.

The dominant alien race uses alien technology to, enslave the time travelling humans to give them an edge, over thier alien brothers, and create a stratified (but controlled) society.



Finger Prints of the Gods



I found a 5th book that I was gonna read that could have changed my understanding of the world, but I lost it before I had a chance to read it. It was old and at the time I didn't have the money to purchase such a rare book. Since that time I have lost track of it.

It was printed in the late 1800's - early 1900's and was about the stars, our mythological past and our known universe.

It may have been suppressed by the ruling elites, because there weren't many copies circulating at the time that I was looking at it.

You've got me interested in that 5th book...You wouldn't happen to remember what it was called?

If I recall someone in a chat room referred it to me many years ago.

I'm afraid I don't remember the name of it.

I wish I did

If a group of people were gonna turn themselves into Gods, what would be one of the first things they would do?

Probably surpress key historical information.

Without a widely learned historical reference point for people to refer back to it would be easier for a minority to convince a naive population of just about anything.

Brahmin mind control over the masses. They could create a hindu like caste, class stratification, mind control, system from which there would be no escape.

Add in computer chips to store and track personal information and you have the perfect system to keep the entire population under control.

"The Book of One" by Dennis Waite
"Living with the Devil" by Stephen Batchelor
"This is It" by Alan Watts
"The Book of Disquiet" by Fernando Pessoa
"Demian" by Herman Hesse

Have not read any books in quite some time, but at the time i read each of these, they made an impact. The top two are quite recent, and they were nice and easy to recall the titles/authors! There are literally hundreds more as i had the pleasure of working in a bookstore for years, but they have been lost in time
These were the ones i could remember off the top of my head (books have been in storage for a while
)

Hi! I like this thread, it is thrilling to see all the books people are reading! I have read alot of them, have started my own uncensored library. Many of these books everyone are reading are non mainstream.... I think it is good so many people are self educating and thinking. I just asked my husband what book he last read, he said he hasn't read a book in 25-30 years. I spend alot of money on books wanting to read them but I don't have the time to, and I pass out quickly when I do finally sit to read. The last good book I read front to back was Jim Marr's Alien Adgenda, and I would like to read that again. I started to read Lesli Keen's new book on UFO sightings, that is an eye opener for sure... I also like the how to and self help books... I read the dog breeders handbook this summer and used that for CPR on my dog's puppy when it was born... no vets involved.

Looks like some good reading. I have heard of, but never read the Screwtape letters before.

Not that the old fashioned Church is the thing... its a little old fashioned, but still deep thoughts.

Its all about Love and the common truth, goodness in our hearts, the pure hearts of children, in every culture or religion though. That Spirit of Peace and Love is the Spirit of Christ. We really need to look through the jargon and red tape of the religions and find the light squares in them, and disregard those things that are not Love: compassion, forgiveness, kindness, charity, gentleness, and learn to recognize distortions deliberately put into things: obey, materialism and success means integrity and good role models, punishment, retaliation, wars, killing is ok if its in the name of God, or if someone is deemed a sinner by his peers, etc. Distortions.
