Hi ATS Brethren,
I'd like to start a discussion; I don't claim to have all the answers.
FYI for the various ego-cliques I've noticed here at ATS,
I can't in good conscience classify myself as being devoted to any
of the polar opposites (rational/intuitive/religious/materialistic),
for example. I won't pick on anybody, or be dismissive of anybody;
I don't care if you are a Christian/Satanist/materialist/mystic/
rationalist/cultist/debater/debunker/Reptoid or whatever!
As a matter of fact, that I don't care about ego-cliques is really
at the heart of the post. Ok, let's get started.
While I have been a student of mysteries for almost 50 years,
it wasn't until recently that I began to seriously examine some
of the more controversial theories, such as Sumerian/Reptile
stuff, Illuminati material, etc.
As I've indicated in other posts, I've been involved in 1-on-1
direct confrontation with some ego-collectives such as TAS
and other creepy crawley collectives. However I'd never
really examined hardcore supposedly-physical / round us
up into FEMA deathcamps and drink our blood type of
Since coming to ATS, I've started to re-examine my assumptions
and see where I have or may have been deceived. Now I'm still
'compiling'. But there is one topic I'd like to discuss, that has
probably been discussed already, but I want to make sure that
due diligence is done on this topic.
(Sorry for all the verbage.. I'm a total wind-bag.)
I have to tell the little red wagon story first, then the rest of
the post is pretty short. Please bear with me.
Long ago in another land and time, there were kingdoms at
war, which had a small shard border.
Although the two kingdoms were at war, they were economically
and culturally tied together, and there was a daily flow of foot
traffic and vehicle traffic between the two kingdoms.
One day a young boy with a little red wagon came up to the main
checkpoint between the kingdoms. The wagon had a pile of bricks
Alert guards challenged him to stop, certain that this innocent
little tyke was being used to smuggle weapons or contraband
in the pile of bricks (who would expect the little tyke to be
'in on no good'?). The guards unstacked very brick, and eventually
let him go, because they couldn't find anything. The little boy
The next day, the boy comes around again, with his cute little
read wagon in tow.. this time with a pile of hay in it. Once
more the alert guards spent a long time sifting through the
straw, looking for the proverbial needle. They found nothing.
The little boy smiled a larger smile.
The third day, the little boy comes around again, this time with
a huge pile of stinky garbage in this shiny little red wagon..
the guards were more certain than ever the little boy was up
to something and got themselves all dirty, hot and stinky,
overturning each stone, turd, and broken bottle. Finally
they let him go.. swearing and raging. The little boy smiles
a huge smile, and starts to cross the border.
At the last instant before he crosses over into enemy territory,
the guards cry out, "we KNOW that you are smuggling something
over the border! Just tell us, or tomorrow we will shoot you!"
The little boy smiles the largest smile they'd ever seen and says,
"Ok. Fine. I'll tell you what I was smuggling ---
little red wagons".
Man, I have always loved that story!
So I'm thinking, would looking at a meta-theory make more sense?
Now, I'm not that interested in 'little conspiracies' here. Is big
agribusiness trying to make us unhealthy? Is big pharma behind
Obamacare? That sort of thing IS important, and may in fact
be part of the big picture. Then again, they might be disconnected.
I totally salute anyone who works on 'smaller conspiracies'.. I do not
mean to marginalize them in any way. I really admire people who
fight for what it is right. Nothing is 'too small' to look into it and
make a difference.
But what I'm talking about here is the 'big picture'. More specifically
I'd like to mention the whole Alien/Anunnaki/Angel/Demon/God/Satan/
'good mystical illuminati' / 'evil mystical illuminati', etc.
Once we get into so-called 'good' and 'evil' and godlike alien / deity /
mysticism / new age/ and especially religion area, people go
completely ape [snip]. This is understandable, as we all have an internal
narrative we tell to ourselves, to make sense of our lives. And if someone
at a competing or polar-opposite point of view is in our vicinity, the
hackles oh so easily go up at the back of our necks. The neighbor who
was once a friend (before you mention religion to him), becomes a
satanic baby killer, once you discover he didn't baptize his infant.
I could have used a materialist / atheist type of example, so don't
feel picked-on my religious brethren. (frankly I'm religious too
in a manner of speaking).
I'm not an anthropologist, but before humans developed exotic
world-views, based upon sky gods and what not, it seems that
humans pretty much banded together and were reasonable
folks; with the exception of nearby tribes that competed for
food and resources. Even then, there didn't appear to be mass
insanity, and in fact actual combat wasn't that common and
might only have involved 'counting coup'.
But then the human imagination got all bloated out of proportion
OR aliens bioengineered us to be nasty OR gods / angels / demons
or whatever decided to [snip] with us. I really don't care what
theory you want to believe. That's not even the point.
I mean, 'angels' are just sexy aliens with wings.. or a potent symbol
in the collective unconscious... or some stars in a constellation...
again.. I don't care what the theory is.
So here's the final few paragraphs.. the whole point of the post
It would seem to me, that the little red wagon here, has nothing
to do with any of the crap people twist themselves into knots
The world / society / culture / religion / mysticism / politics /
all that mind stuff we generate.. seems designed to keep us
PERMANENTLY confused, at each other's throats, warlike,
It's rather bizarre to me, that it seems IMPOSSIBLE to resolve even
ONE of the many theories, so that we can find one single drop of
sanity. It's impossible to prove or disprove anything whatsoever,
on any large and complex scale.
Now, I'm not saying that we shouldn't try.. I mean, we recently
discovered a Higgs Boson! Just took 200,000 or whatever years..
so I'm not saying we should give up.
But the scale and complexity of competing religions, theosophies,
etc etc etc are so staggering, that I can't in good conscience believe
this is just due to an overactive imagination... it could almost make
me believe that we are stuck in a 'absolute confusion simulation'.
I can't imagine a better job of keeping us negative and neutralized
than if it were designed.
So perhaps NONE of the theories matter. Perhaps the effect the
theories have one us, is the desired result. For example, maybe
we are being 'farmed' for fear, like that old Star Trek episode.
I'm running out of characters, but will post other thoughts perhaps
in another post. But if anybody has something intelligent to add,
with more complexity than (X is making us do it!) then that would
be just ducky.
