There might be something to this. The message that I'm getting is that we really don't know, or have any real clue, about the *actual* location of
stars because of a host of effects between us and the stars. Basically, everything we thought we knew is (or could be) completely off because of
refraction, reflection, distortion, gravitational lenses and who-knows-what-else...
Two of the major players in modern astronomy are suddenly out of the picture: distance and placement. In other words (the big I.E.)... No matter
what optical (infrared, radio, etc.) evidence we have about an object (star, whatever)... we really don't know where it truly is because LIGHT is
like a pinball in a cosmic pinball machine, bouncing here, there and everywhere?
Again. There could be something to this. However, what this really sounds like is a PREEMPTIVE ATTACK on optical observations of controversial
nature that might happen in the near future. Even NASA came out recently with theories about enormous planetary objects on slanted, elliptical orbits
at the edge of our own solar system, seeming to confirm suspicions about Planet X, Nibiru, Wormwood, etc.
Now, because of this new ***THEORY***... if/when something strange appears in the heavens headed toward Earth, TPTB (The Powers That Be) can use
threads like this one to say, "Well, we really don't know if this object is as close as it seems because light behaves like a pinball in a pinball
machine and can bounce all over the place. You see, it seems to be heading right toward our precious planet, but don't be alarmed because it might
actually be headed AWAY from us due to distortions, etc..."
It's the classic preemptive move in a classic PSYOPS (Psychological Operations) program geared toward preparing people to remain calm when there will
be VISUAL EVIDENCE of something startling in the heavens. I recommend that we look MORE into the sky with our telescopes after reading this thread.
This is like someone saying that the dampness you experience is not due to the water that just landed on you. With all due respect, this thread is
telling us NOT TO BELIEVE WHAT WE SEE.
