Thankyou! I have been wondering where the hell "this is who we are"'s old avatar pic came from.

I happen to be a Prisoner fan, it's my #1 favorite show. I've watched numerous interviews of McGoohan. In many he describes why the choice to use the weather balloon as Rover was made. The clunky electronic rover didn't work very well, and during a water scene it sunk to the bottom of the ocean. While figuring out what to do someone on set pointed out to McGoohan the big white weather balloon that was in the sky, the show purchased a hundred or so weather ballons and the rest is history.
I find from your "revelations" however that it appears the Patrick McGoohan himself likely didn't quite know the gist of what was being revealed in his own series, of which he was executive producer but evidently not exactly the author?
McGoohan wrote and directed several episodes of The Prisoner himself, occasionally using the pseudonyms Joseph Serf and Paddy Fitz.
McGoohan wrote "Free for All" as Paddy Fitz and directed "Many Happy Returns" and "A Change of Mind" as Joseph Serf. He also wrote "Once Upon A Time" and "Fall Out" using his own name.
Do these Orbs or Rover balloons have something to do with Alien Abductions, Soul Collectors or some other ultradimensional or extraterrestrial method of capturing our life essence?
7. Second chariot description. In (253d - 254e) we return to the chariot image. We are told the fair horse -- on the right -- is a lover of truth, modesty, and temperance. He is guided by the charioteer's word and by reason. The dark horse -- on the left -- is insolent, barely obeying whip and spur. (The right/left distinction seems potentially interesting in view of left/right brain hemisphere differences and how these may relate to the significant topics of cultural orthophilia and leptophobia).
Only, a higher authority was evoked by this integration of spies from every zone of influence, a tacit power behind above all agencies and governments. This is the main message of the series which apparently some still refuse to hear, and make noise to prevent others from hearing.
