Well Rockefeller is absolutely fascinated with spiders. I kind worry about if they're actually insectoids myself. Their behavior doesnt translate into top of anything to me, more like very messy diapered toddlers.edit on 15-10-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
Greetings fellow ATSers! As Springer has said, the next 'Ask Me Anything' guest on ATS will be Dr. Michael Aquino.
Here is the sneak peek from the announcement:
In 1980 an obscure internal U.S. Army concept paper, “From PSYOP to MindWar”, accidentally became public. Though only a brief, theoretical speculation, it exploded into the focus of alarmist rumors and debates for the next three decades. Is the government involved in invasion of the mind beyond the blundering, haphazard legacy of the infamous MKULTRA experiments? Even more unsettling, do such efforts extend beyond conventional scientific research to dark and arcane arts whose very existence is the stuff of legend? The answers are here, in this book by one of that 1980 paper’s co-authors, Lt. Colonel Michael Aquino. Originally intended for the eyes of government policymakers alone, it is now openly available. Ironically _MindWar_ is unclassified only because a level high enough to embrace it has never been anticipated or even conceptualized. What it is capable of setting in motion is simply beyond all previous human interactive experience.
This introduction to the upcoming guest, although intriguing, hardly scratches the surface and is taken from the description of his book on Amazon. There are a few reviews which praise the contents of the book:
You will never look at mass media, social networking pop culture psychology or the nature of warfare in all its forms the same way again.
Sounds pretty good so far, hey?
For those that are not familiar with Michael Aquino or his work, I'd like to present a bit of additional background information. This is not intended to be biographically exhaustive, so please follow up with some of your own research.
Michael A. Aquino is the founder of the Temple of Set, a small occultist order created by members of the Church of Satan. From the link:
The temple was founded by members of the Church of Satan, who left that organization in 1975 because of administrative and philosophical disagreements with its founder Anton Szandor LaVey. The main founder, Michael Aquino, had joined the Church of Satan in 1969 and had risen rapidly in the church's hierarchy. Aquino has stated that he believed LaVey to not be merely a charismatic leader or philosopher, but to have been actually appointed by Satan himself (referring to this charismatic authority as the "Infernal Mandate") to found the church. After the split of 1975, Aquino believed LaVey had lost the mandate, which the "Prince of Darkness" then transferred to Aquino and his new organization, the Temple of Set.
Many people may have heard of the Temple of Set due to the following (from the same link):
The organization and its leading members were vilified and criticized during the so-called Satanic Panic of the 1980s and 1990s.
Here is a YouTube video of the Geraldo Rivera show on which Aquino was a guest during the "Satanic Panic" (fast-forward to the 3:15 mark to have a look). Try to ignore the smatterings of propaganda on the screen throughout the video:
Here's a pic from that video:

And another video on Oprah:
Here is the Official Temple of Set Website, which includes a message from the High Priestess.
I will not draw any conclusions in this thread, as there is currently nothing against ATS Terms and Conditions contained herein.
