The “Insiders want to disclose, but they just can’t” meme has been a round since NICAP and the fifties. It certainly is a major theme of the
Aviary and, of course, is a major point of Greer. (Note: I’m not trying to veer us to Greer. It just deserves a passing mention.) I suspect that
idea is used simply to explain the continuing failure to disclose anything of note. It’s both hopeful and scary. On the one hand we’re making
progress with those in the know and if we can get just a few more we’ll be there. On the other hand the Bad Guys™ are powerful and mean. They will
kill to keep their secrets. It’s almost a Good Cop—Bad Cop scenario. Or maybe it’s “Heads, I win; tails, you lose.”
But the stuff that DOES get out here is often silly to the point of foolishness. Serpo, for example, is at heart a silly, boring story. Some
astronauts participate in an exchange program, visit another planet, which turns out to be dull and uninteresting, fail to make any significant
inroads into alien culture, manage to kill a snake thing, and after several years they come home. Not that everything has to be a Spiderman adventure,
but geez! Wake me when it’s over.
The only reason I can come up with for why these stories are promulgated is simply to dilute the pot, to get people like Ryan and Cassidy to fall for
it simply to give them something to do. Neither Ryan nor Cassidy are the sharpest knives in the drawer, but they’ll work hard trying to put all the
nonsense together. It’s kind of like sacrificing a pig to the piranhas so the people can get across the river while the fish are busy.
Of course, the bigger question is why? Why go to all this trouble? The usual answer acceptable to many is “TPTB want to hold onto power because if
we get free energy the whole thing falls apart.” The old “Big Oil is holding out on us” does not work for me. Did you know that Big Oil’s
profit margins are about a third of what electronics and computers are? Did you know the government makes twice as much off oil than Big Oil itself
Big Oil is not really in the oil business; it’s in the energy business. If there is such a thing as “Zero Point energy” then it seems to me
Exxon and GE could make trillions of dollars by manufacturing these things. They would not be able to churn them out fast enough. Every automobile
would be obsolete overnight, but it would take a couple of decades to transition from oil to zero point. We’d still need oil.
And think of the economic stimulus. If I were given the opportunity to get off the electricity grid I would be willing to pay tens of thousands of
dollars tomorrow to do it. There is enormous profit potential in these things. Think of it. They would be the size of a heat pump and cost as much as
an automobile. I see very little downside and a whole lot of upside to this. If I were a defense contractor who managed to build these things, I’d
be looking for warehouse and manufacturing space, not for hit men to make sure the word did not leak out.
At one point Bill Gates was worth $200 billion. (He’s given much of it away.) Steve Jobs was worth several billion himself. These guys did not get
rich by keeping people from harnessing computer technology. They got rich by allowing it to happen. So I don’t buy the idea that TPTB are keeping
these technologies from us because it would sap their power. It would make them more powerful and richer than ever before. That excuse doesn’t make
any sense at all.
A second possibility has been offered that suggests these technologies are being kept secret to maintain military superiority, just like the atomic
bomb was kept secret, at least for a few years. There certainly is a relationship. Triangle UFOs, for example, are almost certainly manmade craft.
When things are in an experimental stage that sort of secrecy makes sense, but military superiority depends on the ability to deploy new technologies,
from Stealth bombers to F-35s, and deploy them in numbers sufficient to do the job. New technologies certainly have not been used in recent conflicts.
Why not? Are these conflicts not sufficiently bad? C’mon. Iran has nukes. When CAN we use new technologies? Either we don’t have them, or we’re
missing the point altogether. Sixty years of non-disclosure does not make sense in this context.
So we are back to square one. Even if we do have people on the Inside who want Disclosure to happen, we still have people on the Inside who are
willing to muddy the waters, or dilute the pot so that we remain out of the loop. If this is not for money and power, and if this is not for military
superiority, then why are they doing this?
I’ll try to sketch out what I suspect next post.
P.S. I suggest the best way to handle the toddler in the house is simply to ignore him. It's not worth the time to even read what he says. He's
useless. Treat him accordingly.
