Well what an interesting read - this thread was doing really well until it was taken way off topic by various people.
A lot of fascinating info presented and some excellent links for further reading.
A great insight into group dynamics and people and how easily some are distracted, misdirected or even panicked.
We never did establish the truth or not about the Halliburton connection did we or whether or not they are funded, employed,under grant.......
Also we are using a language to communicate that for all the reasons above (different cultures,nationalities etc) is bound to end up in confusion and
I know I for one often struggle to find the correct word to use and i have a reasonable vocabulary to draw from
Everyone here or certainly most seem happy there is no Vampyr connection in the sense of literal blood sucking entities and the thread then seemed to
morph into an investigation of FL. This is where everything seemed to spiral out of control with the appearance of many new members and from FL
themselves (apparently anyway).
We had members confessing they had offered to 'run defence' for them which I find a betrayal of all that ATS is supposed to stand for and why would
they then admit this to the site and people you had offered to deceive. (no reply required)
FL if i recollect correctly said they were trying to destroy the language so they could get to it's basics so they could understand much like
physicists have destroyed the atom to gain deeper insights into how they are built and work. They were then blending 2 languages (usually
ancient/dead) to come up with a new language via their software (nodes or something) maintaining various parts (syntax...). Again i think they said
they were not interested in the origin of any of these but were looking forward in time to when perhaps there may be a unifying language that
everybody uses. This so that everybody understood a word to mean the same thing and not the subtle differences in use that are evident if you travel
around any country listening to how people use their own languages. This then led into the hive mind discussion via instant communication from the
thought rather than the word which in turn gave rise to the loss of individuality through the group mind.
Direne then side tracked many with her flower question and then even more with her mothership story. (I'm sure they found the reactions here most
amusing- i know i did) there was little if any questioning of this just knee jerk reaction. If you actually look at how the question was worded it
displayed incongruities - I can't find the actual post now (to many pages to look through) but it was something like if the forces lost a 'ship'
they would then send another to further recon - as somebody pointed out we probably would NOT do that but use a satellite or drone to check the threat
level before risking more expensive planes/pilots. As for her timeline this was checked and discussed kind of pointlessly as we have no idea of how
far the mother ship was supposed to be but people seemed reasonably happy with the time frames given. But as noted earlier in the discussion if a
civilisation is so far advanced they can conduct interstellar travel then why do we expect them to react in the same fashion that us primitive
Anyway i've lost the point of what i was trying to say here as i keep getting distracted so to finish off thanks OP and will be looking through a lot
of the links you and others have posted.
