Took me a couple of days to wade through the thread; happy I expended the effort to do so. Ser Gut, my utmost respect to you for this insightful
thread and deepest condolences to you upon your loss.
Hope I'm not late to the party...
So we have what seems to be evidence that these phenomena associated with incidences of 'high strangeness' show signs of being a part of a control
system for humanity as a whole when considering that reports of such occurrences take place all the way throughout recorded history. And considering
their manifestations seem to be congruent with human experience and understanding, this system either arises out of our collective consciousness, or
it has been imposed upon us from without.
When taken in to consideration with a couple of the other threads I've been participating in lately, some very interesting possibilities arise.
It has been remarked numerous times how many of the same names keep coming up and these names always involve the upper most echelons that can be
revealed by published works. And always there is the meshing of UFOlogy and psi research utilizing advanced technologies. If we look in the past,
these happenings are covered in religious and spiritual overtones.
Persinger and his helmet, Alexander and his UFO research, Vallee and his early computer work which, oddly enough, lead him to the weirdness.
Looking further I find it very interesting that for Alexander's book, UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities
Vallee mentions their first (I
think) meeting during his (Alexander's) Menlo Park visit (who else is famous for having used that place? hmmm?) and having discussed several topics
but before being able to get on to the 'extensive conversation on "our subject"' was interrupted by the Loma Prieta earthquake. One final note on this
book, the commentary is provided by one Tom Clancy.
I seem to recall some mentions of rumors that Clancy's death was related to something he knew. I never followed up on any of that, but it was
something that popped to my mind when I saw the cover.
Further looking at Vallee's works finds the following:
Other people, such as Laszlo, have envisioned a sort of "world homeostat system" based on the idea that global control must exist in any
dynamically stable system, the sphere of human existence, for example. The concept of a "psychic control system" which I proposed in The Invisible
College, would also be relevant here.
The Network Revolution: Confessions of a Computer Scientist
which was published in 1982.
Ok, So this control system either arises from our collective consciousness, or it has been imposed upon us from without. And those whom are messing
around with the OS (of the universe) are trying to figure out which. Perhaps there's even an element of both at play.
KPB, I'm not sure whether to pull up a stool and sit at your knee and listen, or bash you over the head with it and make you shut up.
ReCairo, you remind me a lot of a mentor I had many moons ago. You resonate very well, and are quite clear with your subtext as well as you are with
your written word. I look forward to seeing more from you.
