I apologize to everyone for my absence from this thread. I've been working like crazy--making hay while the sun still shines, as it were.
A lot of people have asked why I consider the threat imminent (in this case, before the elections).
It is because of a number of factors.
1. As -d shrinks towards 0 (i.e., the time til the election shortens), the effect of time upon mental unity increases exponentially. Everyone knows
that the economy is going to tank hard, even the uninformed. This makes the hunger threat very real.
2. Priinciple of Inversion. As mental unity increases, abstractions tend to be treated as concrete, while concrete objects devolve to the status of
abstraction. This is directly out of The Collective, where I expound on it at length. Since I've offered it free in an earlier post to all the
thread readers (available as a preview download), I won't go into detail on why it is that way right now. You can either look it up, or just take my
word for it. Personally, I'd look it up. In this case, the Principle of Inversion means that any crash has and will continue to be already a
for those who are under the influence of Mental Unity. As I have shown, the percentage of the population will continue to
grow as we approach Nov. 6.
3. Narcissism. I have dealt with borderline narcissistic personalities too many times in the past not to be able to spot one when it's in charge,
and right now we have a narcissist in charge. His need to be loved outstrips everything else in his field of vision, often alienating those closest
to him. He will treat personal relationships as conquests, losing interest once the conquest is complete. But most dangerous for us, he will react
violently and angrily to anyone who dares to suggest that he is not loved. It is a rejection of his trust in his own demi-divinity. To this end, we
will get an example of 'you won't have Richard Nixon to kick around any more!' except it will come from a standing official.
4. Security Threat: we are being bombarded with abstract images of threats to our security. These abstractions become real to those who are under
the influence of Mental Unity. This is why many simply accept the TSA rather than forcibly reject the imposition on their rights to privacy.
5. Moral threat: This is tougher to understand, but I'll try to explain. A moral threat is more than something which offends one's relationship
with God, although that too is a strong moral threat (with the Prestige of God driving it on). The Machine treats everything as a moral threat.
Everything. The Morality of The Machine is such that any objection to its total control of everything within its field of vision is a threat to its
continued existence. Lack of control means death. So all moral threats must be nutralized and destroyed.
If this election is not unduly close (and I think it will be a landslide against Obama because of the state of the economy) then I expect The Machine
to grind into action and perform examples of 'self-hurt'. We should sympathize with the beleaguered individual. When this doesn't work, The
Machine will follow SOP and will try giving its prospective underlings everything that they want. In short, the spigot opens and the money flows as
fast as the machine can push it. That's the beginning of the end.
Mental Unity is high right now, but not high enough. This equation is constantly changing. I could easily be wrong about the timing. I could easily
be wrong about the nature of The Machine. I do not believe that I am wrong about the equation, however, and the equation points towards a tipping
point before the elections.
I am currently plugged into the CNN as an observer (I remain neutral). I am currently plugged into the TOG as a sympathizer (although I retain
distance for neutrality). I am currently plugged into The Machine as a fellow cog in it's activities (as a contractor). I get to see all of it from
a very unique vantage. I also get to watch it without being absorbed by any or all of the collectives. My neutrality gives me distance and clarity.
This is going to happen. If my timing is off, it gets worse. Why? Look at the equations. When d=0, the equation changes. The threat becomes
reality, even if the threat doesn't exist. That reality converts into an Ideal, which becomes the driving factor for the affected collective. If
Obama is reelected, The Machine clamps down hard and fast. If Romney is elected, Obama has a couple months to either scorch the earth or to allow his
followers to explode in moral outrage. Either way this election goes, it goes badly.
On the bright side, after the conflagration hits at least time will start to count up. Once that begins, mental unity can begin to decrease and
sanity can take over.
