A Tale of Two Stories

18 August 2016

Battlefield Earth

This story was written in 1980 by L. Ron Hubbard. In it, the hero, a very smart Earth human, learns the secrets of teleportation after using it to destroy the planet on which it was invented, which had gone psychopathic.
When ETs threaten to take Earth and its people for their own uses, the hero successfully holds them off by teleporting a bomb to one of their moons and blowing it up, then threatening to do the same to any planet that seeks to dominate the universe through war.

Sands of Time III

This story was written in 2016 by Sean David Morton. In it, the hero, a very smart Earth human, learns the secrets of teleportation with the help of his extremely bright wife and grown-up children.
When ETs threaten to make “an example” of Earth for treaty violations, the hero successfully holds them off by teleporting himself to the bridge of their Commanding Officer’s battleship, killing his Technical Officer before he can relay the order to strike, and warning the Commander that such interventions will become routine should he and his flotilla ever show up in our solar system again.

Fact or Fiction?

Hubbard stressed in his introduction to Battlefield Earth that it was “pure Science Fiction.” However, Hubbard had by that time extensively studied the past history of life in this universe and filled his story with all sorts of hints at that truth.

Sean, on the other hand, maintains that his story is based on “journals” kept by a recent past leader of The Group (Earth’s secret space program) and that only the names and dialogue are fictional.

There is a persistent story in “alternative reality” circles that my church was infiltrated and suborned by persons directed from a U.S. government intelligence agency because of their need for a workable spirit-based technology to use for their own purposes.

Seeing as how the greater part of the technology is freely available in written form, it seems odd to me that this level of intervention would be necessary. Yet it is also clear that people in those circles have been interested in, and studied, Scientology.

As I have no personal knowledge of all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans, I cannot comment further on these “findings.” the Intelligence agencies have become masters of creating fiction. But it always helps in maintaining a fiction if as little as possible is knowable about the fictitious events. This is not true of most of the history of Hubbard and Scientology. It is true of the leader of “The Group.” So, where is there more room for fiction? I say, in the “facts” fictionalized from the “journals” left to Sean David Morton.

This presents us with the possibility that Sean’s “journals” are to a greater or lesser extent actually fictional, “leaked” to the public by a group that wants to build a case for its continued existence and activities.

The Living Physics Model

Both stories present their own versions of what could be called a “model” for all that is knowable.

Morton’s model is based on the New Age / Quantum Physics synthesis so popular in the “alternative reality” community today, and supposedly used by ET civilizations as well as our own secret space program. It is based loosely on the Eastern “chakra” system, combined with the idea that “anything that has ever happened or ever will happen is all actually happening at the same time,” thus making “time travel” possible. Morton holds out for a probabilistic future, while others insist that it all depends on which “timeline” you choose.

In Hubbard’s model there are only two main components: Cause and Effect. Cause is defined as non-physical and Effects are always physical to some degree. A causative being creates effects. A being could never create another being, and an effect, even a light one like a thought or memory, can never create anything.

Time is a concept we use to describe the “automated” process of continuous creation, which keeps something “existing” after it has been initially created. If an item were not created with a postulate that it would endure, it wouldn’t continue to exist beyond the point where it’s creator discontinued creating it.

The only “real time” is NOW. The past exists only as energy deposits in present time containing recordings of earlier events or states of existence. The future only exists as an agreement that matter will persist and events will follow certain patterns. Some of these patterns are so strongly agreed to that they can be codified into “Laws of Physics.” However, the idea that time exists as a “dimension” in Physics, on an equal footing with the dimensions of space, is only an illusion; a convenience for predicting phenomena governed by strong agreements such as the Physical Laws.

Per Hubbard, time travel per se is not possible. Both records of the past and expectations about the future are held in place by strong agreements among the various members of the group “Cause.” To alter records of the past or expectations of the future is simply a process of disagreeing with those strong agreements. Most in the group would consider this bad manners, if not criminal! The future should be fair game. However, not everyone is OK with that.

Teleportation

The ability to move objects around as if they were merely ideas could therefore be considered to be a focused, limited, but very strong intention to disagree with the rest of Creation.

In both books this process requires huge machines that use massive amounts of energy. This may or may not be actually possible. But I know that this ability is well within the grasp of any portion of Cause that is willing to disagree and to take responsibility for its decisions. While it would seem to spoil the agreed-upon game, it is Hubbard’s argument that life in bodies is not all it’s cracked up to be, and a longer leash – if not a total separation – might be good for all of us.

This ability, then, regardless of exactly how it is implemented, is a key survival ability. Both Morton and Hubbard present to us scenarios illustrating how unsettling it can be to attain and use this ability. They both stress that the attainment of it should not be for the purpose of using it, but rather for the purpose of knowing you could if you absolutely had to.

No Man’s Sky

14 August 2016

No Man’s Sky is a “science fiction” video game that I found out about last year when I went into a gamers’ computer store and asked if they had anything to offer involving space travel. This game – in the works for years now – was finally released on Friday the 12th of August.

At about the same time as the release of this game, I found out that Sean-David Morton’s 3rd book in his “Sands of Time” series was being released, and I got a Kindle copy of it and have been reading it.

Sean-David claims this story is based on the journals of a recent past leader of The Group. Per Sean, those journals were entrusted to him after that man’s death (or disappearance). The documents purport to explain many odd phenomena that have been happening on Earth since the birth of the Space Age in Germany in the 1930s.

Per Sean-David’s story (though corroborated by many other sources to a greater or lesser degree), space is indeed “no man’s sky.” Not only does ET not want us flying around out there in our current “uncivilized” state, but no one ET group has definitive control out there, either. The place is just too big!

LRH came to a similar conclusion in the 1960s, after 10 years of research into our long-past experiences on “other worlds.” To LRH, this part of his research was somewhat esoteric and off-the-point. If Mankind did not achieve a better balance between spiritual abilities / awarenesses and our eternal lust for physical-world “experience” we would never attain a reasonable level of freedom and happiness, and what might come to happen here on Earth in the not-too-distant future would not make that much difference.

I have made it one of my jobs (for the time being) to make the people who are most interested in “what’s really happening” on Earth aware of Hubbard’s work. I know for sure that the “other side” is aware of it! Ask any Remote Viewer where the early ideas for their technology came from. See the evidence of Hubbard’s influence strewn throughout the “leaked” documents from various secret military programs.

Sean-David Morton

I don’t know that much about him. He is currently 56 years old. He has some psychic ability that he once used to advise people on financial dealings. He never asked for payment, he says, but got some nice gifts from some of his clients.

He is a mini-celebrity in the Los Angeles area and hosts one or more radio programs. His public persona is rather insouciant (a word I learned from LRH) and he comes on as rather high-school in his shows. He knows that most people can’t be bothered by the true meaning of life and all that, but he seems to be one who has confronted this subject himself and come to terms with it.

I think he is convinced of the basic truth of the story he has been writing. The Group was created in the United States to deal with the “Alien Threat.” Many New Agers are totally convinced that there is no significant global security threat from ET. Dr. Steven Greer is a leading proponent of that point of view. He thinks all the trouble is coming from Earth humans. LRH was not so sure about that. Greer has not looked at the data collected by Hubbard. Hubbard may have been aware of some of the data Greer has been exposed to, but if so, has not mentioned it publicly. Hubbard’s viewpoint, though, is backed up by other insiders who have gone public. ET appears to be a very mixed bag. And their people are capable of considerable deception.

Sean’s story does not cover much beyond the actions of The Group itself. It is “officially” part of the US Navy. But its work in UFO retrievals and reverse-engineering of ET technologies has apparently put it above all other organized power groups on Earth. The public view is that The Group are a bunch of scoundrels. Their own view is different. According to Sean’s story, they have saved Earth from major ET-caused catastrophes at least 4 times in the last century.

From this point of view, it was ET that managed to convince the US government that its conventional military organizations would be powerless in the face of a real ET attack. One ET group wanted us to totally disarm all our nuclear weapons. Ike refused to do so, instead starting a program that could possibly be hidden from ET that would bring us up to a technological level where we could hold our own against them. The Group has maintained total secrecy concerning its actions and its existence. There have been many attempts on Earth to expose it. Most of the “pro-disclosure” crowd are very sure that the above top secret programs operated by The Group are simply protecting corporate interests at the expense of the general population. None have been confronted by the possibility that they have actually saved our asses several times now – except through Sean’s book.

The story remains incomplete

I just started up No Man’s Sky today. I am stranded on a strange planet, and would have to not only learn how to play video games in general, but also this game in particular, in order to get myself out of this do-or-die predicament.

Our situation here on Earth does not seem that much different. We have A LOT to learn if we want our current way of life – or anything remotely resembling it – to continue on this planet. We have The Group’s approach, which seems to have set up a half-way decent but totally secret security perimeter around the planet. And we have LRH’s approach, which offers Mankind a half-way decent and almost totally not secret alternative to the path that we are currently walking down. They both have their places in solving the dilemma. Most of the other news I am getting seems to be noise.

Washington State Primary

2 August 2016

Got an email yesterday from a political group reminding me to vote in the primary! Thought I had more time…I was planning to actually research the candidates, but it was too late. I filled out the ballot, sealed it up, and took it downtown to deposit it in a metal drop box near City Hall.

Sending a message

You can participate in a democratic process for at least two reasons: To help someone get elected or to send a message to the “front runners.” Though using voting for the second reason is not an organized activity at this point, it well could become so. I am not happy with either of the major parties. But I found out there are a lot of candidates for state offices who identify with alternative parties like the Libertarians or the Independents. I don’t know if any of these parties ever get their people elected. But by organizing and running they are trying to send a message to the major parties that there is a section of the population which is not happy with the Republicans or the Democrats. So by voting for candidates from alternative parties, you help them send this message.

Aren’t the Asses and the Dumbos actually opposing each other?

The media and the candidates themselves try to portray themselves as political opponents. But that’s not what I see. In 1963 the Democrats lost a president under mysterious circumstances. Why haven’t they ever gone after that issue? Or the 9/11 loss, which happened while a Republican President was in office?

Ike, upon retiring from the Presidency, warned us about the “military-industrial complex.” It is very real. Why don’t the politicians or the press ever mention it? Could it be that it rose to become all their masters, as Ike warned it might? That’s the theory most of us in the “alternative community” now operate on.

So by “sending a message” of non-support through the voting process, this is the power group we are ultimately communicating to.

Are politicians really necessary?

Many in my circles have argued that the importance of politics in life – especially in modern life – is extremely over-stated by the media and the politicians. Ultimately, I think that’s true.

But it would be unwise to think that just because most people, most communities, are perfectly able to take care of themselves and make their own best decisions, that this leaves no place for politics or politicians. The problem is to find that place and put those people in that place, and keep them there. In other words, government has a purpose. Most people just don’t know what it is.

Awareness of what is

The essence of politics is probably leadership. It’s secondary purpose is management. When an individual in a group rises to help that group through some challenge, and is successful at that, the group tends to look at that individual as “powerful.” The truth is that we are all powerful, but under those circumstances that individual was more aware of something than the others, and was able to communicate it in a way that got the group to work together to get something done that needed to be accomplished.

Probably that leader’s ideal scene would be to bring everyone in the group up to his own level of awareness, so they could all share equally in the responsibilities that accompany being more aware. But most leaders don’t know how to do that, or see their “power” as something they can use to their own personal advantage.

We should never forget, though, that “power” derives from an awareness of what is – some more basic truth of existence – and concentrates into the hands of a few individuals only when they are successful in keeping those awarenesses a secret from everyone else. If you can learn to become more aware of what is, you will become more free from the control of powerful elites, but you will also carry the responsibility of that increased awareness with you and feel the need to act on it, first by sharing that awareness, or that ability to be aware, as broadly as you can. You either join one of the power elites, or you “fight” them in that manner.

Greer-Goode-Wilcock-Tompkins-Hubbard

28 July 2016

I ordered and received a package of DVDs and books from Dr. Greer’s organization a little bit ago, and watched most of his more recent lectures over the past few days.

These were basically a series of briefings about the politics of the ET situation, the extent of the secret space program, and the suppression of disruptive technologies that could greatly improve human conditions on Earth.

The politics of the situation center around a group of people who were able to gain access to ET technologies and used them for purposes of conquest and threatening more honest and peace-loving people to allow their work to continue (under duress). This is how criminals work.

Of all the researchers in this area, Greer probably has the most reality on how criminal the high-level people in this program are. His research, however, does not include the connection with ex-Nazi Germans.

Goode-Wilcock-Tompkins

David Wilcock also has started a new set of shows with Corey Goode that feature the information that William Tompkins has been releasing in his book and subsequent interviews. In the shows Corey comments on how Tompkins’ data align or differ from his own training and information.

Goode, Wilcock and Tompkins all believe that the secret space programs started with some occult German groups who wanted to achieve some sort of technological advantage for their own purposes. They got talked into taking over Germany and starting a war, but decided to bow out of that war by “losing” it and moved their operation to South America and Antarctica. This allowed them to keep their technologies secret and later infiltrate the US corporate and military groups that might be sympathetic to their plans. These connections apparently eventually resulted in what some call a “breakaway civilization.” This group runs mining operations and manufacturing plants on other planets and trades with various ET societies. A sub-group also helps the dominant aggressive ET group in its missions outside this solar system which are presumably military missions.

Greer doesn’t mention this data, and may not, in fact, have been told any of it. Though he reads some books on the subject, he says he does not use the internet to do any research; all his most important data is from his sources, who are mostly government-related, along with a few corporate people and near-royals like Lawrence Rockefeller and Prince Hans-Adam of Liechtenstein.

Other Dimensions

Most of these New Age guys are into “dimensions” or “densities.” I’m not sure where they got this idea about the “new physics” except that the mathematics of physics uses them. In physics, the “dimension” of Time measures the duration of phenomena or changes of position.

Lots of people are into “parallel time lines,” time travel and other such phenomena. There is also the whole subject of medical restoration expressed as a system for time-regressing a body.

Through all of this I have also been listening to Hubbard’s Philadelphia Doctorate Course (PDC). He touches on these esoteric questions, though in the end, he is trying to train auditors how to audit. However, in this process he presents the simplest view of the situation in this universe that I know of: 1) non-physical points of creation exist; 2) they create effects like matter, energy, space, time and perhaps many others; 3) all creation takes place in present time.

Thus, for me, this talk of “dimensions” and “timelines” along with Meditation and similar “paths to higher consciousness” are all window-dressing for the full range of possible phenomena that can be created and experienced by the non-physical entities which we are. All the action happens in the physical in present time, as far as I’m concerned. All the perception and creation of that action resides with the causative entities which are totally non-physical. Calling biology “life” is a misnomer in my universe. Biology is a creation of life which life is intimately connected to, but it is not life. If it were, biological entities would never die, but they do all the time. Though we can play at being causative through our bodies, what a being can do trapped in a body bears only the faintest resemblance to what one can do freed and fully self-aware.

Who are the ETs and what do they want?

Greer is adamant that if there were “bad” ETs they would have taken this planet for themselves long ago. This reveals his naiveté in these matters. There are plenty of powerful bad guys on Earth. Why haven’t they long ago completely taken over the place and turned it into their dark playground? The answer is that they are in a minority and that the worst of them are so afraid that it is difficult for them do anything effective. For this they depend on higher-toned minions who are less self-destructive and thus more courageous. By a sort of pyramid system of threats of violence they manage to keep a lot of people “in their place” but at the expense of never totally getting their ideal future, always having to compromise with the somewhat saner people they force to cooperate with them. Thus life, in its basic urge to keep the game going, provides a restraining force to the destructive “dark side.”

The “bad” ETs are restrained in their actions by other groups that wish to have Earth surviving more or less as it is now, so as to provide them with a new trading partner, a travel destination, a research area, or something else like that.

Though the “pro Earth” ETs may not want much more from Earth than the various business interests here on Earth want from their customers (sales, so they can show a profit), in public they tend to get over-elaborate in their statements of purpose. This a company promoting “Come alive!” in the 1960s was selling flavored sugar water (Pepsi). And another promoting “the power to be your best” made electronic computing machines (Apple).

I don’t know what most ETs really want, but it would be wise to look past their advertising to their actual products. So far the technology they have “given” us has served our military and criminal sectors very well and the rest of us very poorly. If this is the best they have to offer, I am not that impressed. I know LRH would agree with me.

Yes, their technologies would give us a temporary boost if released for broad public use. But the big question for us – as well as them I do believe – is, can we manage to reverse our own spiritual downward spirals? Can we learn to re-separate ourselves from our material creations, at least when we need to? If this planet were taken from us for some reason, could we recreate our lives on another one? If we are serious about ever ending our slavery to the criminal elements of this universe, those are the questions we must learn to answer.

The Moon landing

By way of a sort of illustration of this dilemma, I offer the example of our 1960s Apollo Program. I believe all the researchers mentioned in my title, bar LRH because I’ve never heard him comment on this, are in basic agreement on what happened during the first Moon landing.

Greer specifically laid this out for us in one of his briefings, and Tompkins has also mentioned it. Our astronauts were not alone when we got to the Moon in 1969. There were several ET ships above them – very close – watching their every move. These ships were videoed. That video has been seen by someone Greer knows. A substitute video of that event was made in advance, as we were expecting those observers. So what we saw on TV that day did not all happen up on the Moon.

We don’t even “own” our own Moon! We have been allowed to develop bases on the Moon and various other places as a secret program under close ET watch. They want to make sure we don’t turn the technologies they gave us against them! And it will continue to be that way until they can trust us, or until they have no alternative but to trust us (that we could turn the tables on them is a rather distant possibility). And so, yet another piece of our cherished history must be re-written before it is reasonably accurate. And so it goes.

I just got chipped.

24 July 2016

mastercard promo piece

A replacement debit card arrived in the mail today. I got an email from my credit union saying it would be coming. It has an electronic integrated circuit “chip” in it that is supposed to make transactions more secure.

Well, fine. Who cares? They are trying to deal with all the credit card fraud going on around the world.

But for anyone familiar with the alternative realities community, this connects directly to something Aaron Russo and many others were talking about for a long time.

The whole agenda is to create a one-world government where everybody has an RFID chip implanted in them…there will be no more cash — and this was given to me straight from [Nicholas] Rockefeller himself…
– Aaron Russo from 2006 Alex Jones interview

Russo died in 2007, five years after learning he had cancer.

The current experimental model, which has been reported on television and implanted under the skin in many people, is not exactly a “chip.”
public version of RFID chip
It’s a tiny tube with some electronics in it, and a pickup to energize it when it is scanned, like other RFID technologies.
RFID chip diagram
The implant contains only an ID number or code. This is fed into a computer which connects to one or more databases that might contain more data about the person. A pilot program in Atlanta was using it to connect to a medical database to help with emergency treatment situations.

ET

It has been stated by numerous researchers and experiencers that real (and “faked”) ET abductions often include insertion of an implant. When these are found (by x-ray usually) and surgically removed, they are usually described as “biological” or “bio-electronic.” That kind of implant is certainly more sophisticated than what we are seeing in the mainstream media. And reports say it is much more invasive, too.

How important is this?

These devices are certainly real. The low-tech versions pictured above have been released to the public, and other versions have been studied.

To the extent that they can be implanted without the knowledge of the carrier, they can be used as a covert method of tracking people. And their capabilities could include mood alteration, thought control or fake telepathy, and triggering of hypnotically-installed programming.

But to the extent that they can be detected and removed or deactivated, they are not a reliable control technology. Of course, we could be forced to use them, as people are forced now to take vaccines. But that would be a too obvious totalitarian ploy. So I don’t think they will come into wide use unless the totalitarians gain a lot more control than they have now.

The chip in my new debit card, however, is another matter.

As a long article at Wikipedia explains, the card issuing institutions (a few major banking companies) are forcing businesses to upgrade their card processing equipment (also known of Point of Sale equipment, or PoS – confusing because this acronym is already in use to mean “piece of shit”) by re-writing merchant contracts to stipulate that merchants will be responsible for all fraudulent transactions on non-upgraded equipment.

Meanwhile, many cyber-security researchers have tried to demonstrate that the new equipment can be fooled just like the old equipment could be. But the banks are having none of that; they are pushing ahead with what looks like a target date of October 2017 for full implementation.

My take is that bankers at the consumer level have become desperate. Their technologies are hackable and it is costing them money. Even after they stopped paying consumers interest on their savings, and though they charge very high rates for purchases on credit, a general surge of financial crime is continuing to squeeze them.

I think it is quite possible that criminal elements in the banking system are trying to force a collapse in consumer banking by pushing weak-security-by-design technologies, then financing the credit card hacking industry. People are just having too much fun with their credit cards. And this whole “false flag” paradigm has become such an obvious modus operandi for well-placed criminal groups in recent years, that I have come to suspect it is in use whenever I see a suspicious “problem” like this one persist. I am just guessing in this case, but the possibility for something like this is very real.

The use of the term “gold chip” is at one level a marketing stunt and at another level a slightly sinister play on words. This could be the “chip” that Russo was told about! Take away cash, or make it very scarce, or worthless, and a card with a “gold” chip in it will be the only way left to transact business in the “legitimate” economy. Back to the days of Roman gold coins!

The criminals have the consequences of their actions totally justified. They don’t respect what little dignity human life has left. They hate it and themselves. It is much more important to realize this and out-create this suppression than it is spread doom-and-gloom about our future. The doom-and-gloom are inevitable if we don’t out-create the suppression. So why dwell on it while we still have a chance to escape it?

And as for ET and their implants? I recommend the same basic approach. Treat them as criminals until they reveal themselves and prove otherwise. It’s probably the truth in most cases.

My take on the Mandela Effect

15 July 2016

I was introduced to the “Mandela Effect” while listening to a recent interview with Tolec (an American who acts as a communicator for the “Andromeda Council,” a supposed ET group).

Apparently it is named from the fact that many persons were under the impression that Nelson Mandela had died during his 18 years of being imprisoned in South Africa, and thus were surprised when he became the first democratically-elected President of modern South Africa.

Various people have come up with numerous examples of (usually) small facts that they remember differently than they are now recorded. Some are alarmed at this trend and think that some group is secretly injecting these small changes into our culture to confuse us.

Revelations

One example Christians use is Bible verse that has changed from how they remember it. Such an example is the Book of Revelations. This is what most Christians called this book. Here is my 1982 dictionary entry on the subject:

revelation in the dictionary

Here we see that the official name of the book is “…Revelation…” but that it has also been known as “Revelations.”

Brand Names

Some people who have looked into this put a lot of attention on brand names. The fact that Froot Loops is not spelled “fruit” or that Band-aid is not spelled “aide” or that Jif was never actually “Jiffy.” Most people thought those wieners we used to wish for were “Oscar Meyer” when in fact it is Mayer.

This sort of thing goes on and on.

One proven instance of this in popular culture is the exact line the evil queen says to her mirror. A version of the Disney story published in 1973 has it as “mirror, mirror on the wall…” But the original 1937 animated film has the queen say at least once, “magic mirror on the wall…” Everyone remembers “mirror, mirror…”

You can see how someone could get a little freaked out at having these sort of things being brought to their attention.

What’s really happening

I don’t suppose I should pretend to exactly understand this situation.

But I can think of at least four forms of change that could be reacted to in this sort of way:

  1. A newer version of something replaces the older version and most remember the newer version.
  2. Or, most remember the older version. Such changes can be due to artistic license, carelessness, changes forced by law or done to avoid legal problems, and changes done to intentionally confuse people.
  3. People are starting to find out the truth about something that used to be lied about.
  4. People are being lied to about something they used to know the truth about.

I think the “parallel universes” caused by AI (artificial intelligence) systems like quantum computers hypothesis is rather unlikely.

But the phenomenon could be some form of covert operation (since there seem to be so many of these) intended on destabilizing the population. In this case, my guess would be that some covert group got the ball rolling by putting a few of these examples in our faces, and then some people started to run with it.

Stable Data

Most people are NOT in very good control of their own memories, but the fact is that they can improve that control and that the basic mechanism of memory is quite accurate.

Many examples cited are NOT IMPORTANT. Interview with A Vampire…Interview with The Vampire. Who cares?

I have an LRH book “Advanced Procedure and Axioms.” Although this is its official title, LRH referred to it as “Advanced Procedures…” several times in lectures. Who cares?

General lying and other modes of deceiving the public have existed forever and will continue to be used. That does not make it right. Lying about things that are important is criminal.

In Other News

The planet is experiencing a string of terror attacks in the West. (Most other places experience them all the time.) I believe that those who think these events are being caused by the same groups who control the mainstream media are on the right track.

Meanwhile, Courtney Brown has been running a “Time Cross” project that resulted in views in May of events that happened in June and views in June of events that may yet happen in July. I think this is stretching Remote Viewing into a form of precognition and is not worth the trouble. I’d rather see people use Remote Viewing to locate planners of violent events so such events can be prevented. That, however, would be truly dangerous work. Courtney does want his viewers to remain alive!

So…should it be Coca Cola, or hyphenated, Coca-Cola? Does it really matter?

How divided is America?

11 July 2016

The on-screen news ticker in our mess hall (known to others as the “break room” or the “auditorium”) proclaimed today (among many other things) that Obama had said something about the US not being that divided.

The actual quote, from a video of a 9 July press conference in Poland was, “I firmly believe that America is NOT as divided as some have suggested.”
(The US President, by long tradition, refers to US citizens as “Americans” and the US as “America.”)

So, I thought, how divided is America?

I went about looking up some opinion poll results that might tell me something about this. Most of the polls I found are not that current. Apparently it still takes a good bit of time to create, organize, carry out and report on a large poll across a country or a planet. The sample has to be adequately randomized and all that…

Before I give you any figures, let’s go over some theory.

I suppose that most sociologists think that a person’s opinion about something is determined mostly by 1) his training and education and 2) a set of shared qualities often spoken of as “human nature.”

Point 1 is important without question. But what is point 2, really? You’ll have to figure out the Psychology explanations for yourself. My (far from complete) Scientology training, though, bears mentioning. The model, as you may be already aware, starts with a being. We can suppose that this being started out totally free to be, do and have anything it wanted. What we have today in “human nature” is the result of trillions of years of experience living with other beings, never totally aware of what they were or what oneself was. Humans find themselves today on a Tone Scale, where they are more or less free to move up or down. This scale was derived from observation, not dogma. It is workable when used to predict behavior and attitudes.

From the Hubbard Chart of Human Evaluation, let’s take column Q, “Command over Environment” where political attitudes are mentioned. At high on the scale, 4.0, we have “dislikes to control people.” At 3.5 we have “Liberal.” At 3.0 we have, “Allows rights to others. Democratic.” At 2.5 we have “Does not desire ownership of much.” At 2.0 we have “Desires command in order to injure.” So at this point the being is taking a turn for the worse.

At 1.5 we have the Fascist. At 1.1 we have the Communist (cold-war style, sneaky, loves hypnotism as a control method, otherwise known as a “true criminal”). And at 0.1 we have the suicide.

When I speak of “suppression” I am referring in particular to one person or group trying to push another person or group DOWN this scale. The 1.1 likes to push people down to 0.1. The 1.5 likes to kill people outright. The 2.0 likes a good fight, content for the adversary to survive for another day. The higher tones are also ready to fight, but with increasing levels of selectivity (and often, effectiveness).

These are the social tones. The being itself, quite normally being unaware of itself, sleeps at a lower tone level. Wake it up, and it can do some very strange things until it gets a grip on its new sense of self-awareness. But for the purposes of this discussion, we are talking about the social tones of humans.

Most of us were raised with a “liberal” education. The majority of us fell lower subsequently, seeing Liberal values as ideals to be worked for. Democracy is seen as a safe, sensible approach to achieving those ideals. However, you have to fight for democracy! Or, do you really have to enforce it? Or, perhaps, trick people into accepting it?

All these attitudes and influences went into the creation and subsequent marketing of our “global government” the United Nations. Included in the marketing plan for this body was a document entitled the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was unveiled 10 December of 1948 in Paris. It is embraced by my church, as the right to worship freely is included in it.

The concept of human rights is not, strictly, “Liberal.” As the history of the subject reflects, human rights can be seen as much as a sensible approach than as pie-in-the-sky idealism. Cyrus the Great – 539 BC – is noted as an early proponent of this approach. However, Cyrus was, first and foremost, an emperor. And, strictly speaking, his empire only lasted 200 years. You can earn the respect of vast populations by respecting them. At least the Emperor should be able to afford to do this!

Be all that as it may, the attitude surveys I found deal mostly with the most basic human rights. These include the old Liberal rights of thought, speech and worship and the newer “socialist” (communist?) rights to food, clothing, shelter, health care, education. It should be noted here that Public Education, and many of these other “humanitarian” programs, are not ancient traditions in most lands of Earth. But on Earth, strong central governments are also a rather recent development, made possible in part by technological progress in fields like communication, transport, agriculture, medicine – oh – and, war.

The bell curve of the tone scale

Does the distribution of tone levels on earth actually fit a “bell” shaped distribution? I have no firm data on this. But imagine for a moment that you were totally free to move around on this scale as you wished and to confront or experience life at the tone that seemed the most appropriate at the time. Where on the scale would you spend most of your time? At the middle, 2.0? Perhaps down below that a bit, in pain? Or above the middle a bit, bored?

Think of all the people you know that spend most of their time somewhere between pain and boredom. Could be quite a few. Or maybe at 1.5 as an angry Fascist? Seems that might shorten one’s life span!

It has been put forward by Hubbard that about 2.5% of the population manage to secretly hang out around 1.1. It would be charitable to put the bulk of the population as high as 3.0 (Conservative), but in the reasonably calm situation of answering opinion poll questions, we can imagine many would try their best to assume that viewpoint, or higher, up into Liberalism, if their education demanded it.

But you can see the problem with these polls, and with Presidential statements regarding “divisions.” Sufficient suppression can plunge a nation down into hatred and war. Sufficient relief can allow it to surge up into a peaceful Liberalism. But real education about real life could in theory stabilize a nation at a high level that it could not be pushed down from. In these polls concerning attitudes, people are not much divided, though their ideas display a range from Liberal on down. In polls concerning things that are theoretically provable certainties, we often see more even splits. Thus, the suppression of the truth has left in question facts that should be totally knowable. This is troubling, as people need certainty, and if the certainty of something is not plain to the face, beliefs and propaganda will be used to fill in the blank spots.

The Polls

Pew (Pew Research Center) has a project called the Religious Landscape Study. Data points for this study exist for 2007 and 2014. The results for 2014 were published late in 2015.

The Council on Foreign Relations must employ a lot of researchers, because it has published reports on various global studies concerning attitudes on human rights, among other issues. The latest reports I found date from December of 2011.

I fill in some odd bits from other sources.

Attitudes

What we see from these studies is a consistent percentage spread across related issues.

Support for the traditional human rights hovers around 3/4 of those polled, both US and global.

It goes way down for freedom of the press. The press is notorious for its misbehavior. When the question is reworded to ask about the freedom of the press “to report the news truthfully,” support for this concept goes up to 70% in the US, with a low of 41% in India, where “truth” and “the press” are probably seen by most as opposites.

Support for the “socialistic” or “nanny state” human rights of more modern times shows a bit more variation in societies. We can see education and propaganda at work here.

In China 98% support the right to a basic education, with similar numbers for health care and food.

In the US, 83% supported government responsibility for basic education, 77% health care, 74% food and 70% supported government responsibility for taking care of the poor.

These are still large majorities – you could almost say, consensus for all the basic human rights.

Similar support for “Liberal/Democratic” values are seen for questions asking about “equal treatment.”

From the Pew Religions Landscape Study, for example, we find 70% of religious people agreeing that all religions should be tolerated.

Beliefs about “fact”

Now let’s swing over into the subject of belief, and in particular, belief about how things “really are.” We know for a fact (not surveyed, though) that it’s often hard to discern basic, underlying cause. If the cause of an event or situation is a criminal that wants to keep itself a secret, it may very well be successful in doing so.

Spiritual and mental technologies like Remote Viewing and Scientology auditing are beginning to get around those old barriers of perception limitations and uncertainty. But most people still rely on belief, or “someone who knows” for the last word on many “facts.” The Bible, for example, remains a very widely-read book! And it’s not even easy to read (at least I don’t think so).

90% of US adults say they believe in God. That is an amazing consensus from such a diverse country! But of course, by most counts this one doesn’t matter, because this is entirely a question of faith. The implication, though, is that if science or my favorite expert doesn’t have an answer, I’ll take God’s answer.

Here’s an interesting question they asked: Do you feel a deep sense of wonder about the universe? 46% said Yes in the most recent study. What about the others?

Evolutionism versus Creationism was covered in this study, but not well. This is a subject that should be, at some point, 100% knowable. At some point. But only a little over 60% are convinced that “humans” have actually changed that much during their time on earth. This question is still very much up in the air! Only a third of US adults totally believe that Darwinian Natural Selection explains human development on earth. (A testimony to how bad a theory it is!)

http://www.ipsos-na.com/news-polls/pressrelease.aspx?id=6902

Here we have a more recent poll conducted by Ipsos (a European marketing research company) and released on Monday, June 29, 2015: 56% of Americans believe UFOs are real. Good that only leaves 44% to go. But only 45% believe ETs have visited Earth. Oh boy!

79% believe life on other planets is plausible. But that’s a terribly-worded question. Same figures as above for Evolution.

The accuracy of the survey is estimated to be +/- 3.5%.

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2013/04/conspiracy-theory-poll-results-.html

And here we have a “Conspiracy Theory Poll,” results released April 2, 2013. This is only of US voters. Poorly-worded questions, but:

37% think global warming is a hoax.
21% believe there was a cover-up of the UFO crash at Roswell (an absolute certain fact). This one shows how well certain groups have been able to keep the lid on this data.
44% think Bush lied about WMDs in Iraq (another total fact).
And 25% of US voters still think Oswald acted alone in killing JFK. For all intents and purposes it has been demonstrated that Oswald didn’t even point a gun at the President that day. But the US population is almost evenly divided on this question of fact, per this poll.

So you see that we are divided about facts that should be provable, but have not yet, in many’s eyes, been proven, while we are united in our desire for peace, tolerance, and taking responsibility for those less fortunate.

Where we are really being divided is in our perception of the truth. Suppression has failed almost totally to educate us out of our basic humanity. Though we are told every day that we are just animals, most people around the world believe we were created by the Divine, and probably always will believe so.

Where suppression on earth is working is in disconnecting us from factual data that should make certain truths quite obvious. Amazingly, many have connected with that data anyway. But it is too few!

Obama said nothing profound two days ago. But oh, has he failed to tell us so much that we really do deserve to know! Thus, he will be perceived by most as a liar. Better alive than truthful? I guess each must make that decision for themselves. I hope it is clear what side of that question I favor.

CIA man talks about UFOs and ET

7 July 2016

Another book recently published that I’ve read through is titled “Anonymous: CIA Agent Reveals the Truth about UFOs.”

An older UFO researcher named Ronald Garner put it out, apparently at the request of the person who was interviewed. This person was interviewed for a radio show, or series of shows, by Linda Moulton Howe in 1998, about three years after his security oath expired. It concerns events of 1958 to 1960 that “Anonymous” participated in, as an Army officer also working as a CIA analyst. This person seems bona fide, but has had his life threatened, so refuses to identify himself.

He was involved in analyzing reports of UFO and ET sightings mostly from abroad. He also got a tour of Area 51 and participated in three briefings of Richard Nixon (Vice President at that time) and Ike Eisenhower.

The Oval Office as not having much luck getting good data about UFOs and ET though its own intelligence people, the CIA. The various military groups involved were being very tight-lipped, and the people really in charge of Area 51 (S-4) were telling them almost nothing.

While visiting Area 51, Anonymous personally witnessed 6 “flying saucers,” three identified as “alien” and three identified as “German.”
He also saw the Gray they were holding prisoner there, and saw an “alien autopsy” film of a six-fingered “light gray.”

From my data, the craft that crashed at Roswell were manned by scientists from Zeta Reticuli. They were “peaceful” in so much as they were just doing research for some project. Back home they were having some genetic problems relating to being forced to clone bodies in order to reproduce. One of their dead reincarnated on Earth as a human, and that’s where this data comes from.

The book itself is very poorly edited and is mostly just interview transcripts with a few photographs of the public people involved.

The following facts are established in this interview:

  • The President, and elements of the CIA, knew about UFOs and their connection to both ETs and Germans, from at least as early as 1947. They knew almost nothing, however, about ET. And they talked very little about the Germans.
  • The U.S. had several captured craft and one live ET. They were kept at Area 51. Who controlled that area is not totally clear.
  • The “defeated” Germans lived in Colombia, Argentina, above ground and in underground bases, and also underground in Antarctica. Hitler was among those who got moved to South America before the end of the war. There is some indication that the German saucers gave the Germans a certain amount of leverage in creating refuges for their top people.
  • Forrestal sent Byrd on a military expedition against the German/ET positions in Antarctica which was notoriously unsuccessful. Forrestal wanted to make the whole thing public, went somewhat crazy over not being allowed to, and was finally killed in an “accidental fall.” It was made clear by this CIA asset that he was told that the CIA killed Forrestal.
  • This CIA asset knew of only two types of ET and about four or five types of craft (counting two or three as German) at the point that his association with the CIA was terminated (at his request).

We have photographs of both these types, and they are likely the two most significant non-human ETs involved with Earth. Photos of “human” ETs would do us no good, as they look just like humans so could always be disputed as being posed. But photos of the other races are likewise lacking. I am a little mystified about this. There are plenty of drawings of them, so it seems likely they exist. And the human Zeta mentions the Reptilians as being a formerly hostile race in their system who left them sterilized and forced them to develop cloning methods in order to provide new bodies. The exact nature of the Reptilians, the Draco, Mantids and the Avians remains very unclear. The last three seem to include ruling groups. There are also the Sasquatch, but they only get mentioned occasionally. All these groups – to the extent that they are real – obviously wish to keep themselves secret from the general public.

All I can contribute to all this is that, from the research that I am aware of, it is VERY likely that various ET races exist and that some retain “Space Opera” capabilities and have some interest in Earth.

Our best strategy seems to be to rehabilitate our spiritual abilities so that we are able, at some point, to survive anything they can throw at us.

These various other races themselves, though much older than ours (we are a synthetic group anyway, with no long history on this planet) and thus technically more advanced, are likely to be, for the most part, as bad off as we are morally and spiritually. We were all involved with them in one way or another before we came here, and our condition is quite reflective of their condition, though perhaps a bit more “crazy about life” due to our short body life span. There is no particular reason to assume that they could – or would be willing to – help us very much, certainly not spiritually. There is moderate reason to think that they might want to take advantage of us in various ways. This is all part of what we still need to figure out.

Victory

4 July 2016

The rest of the book – many chapters, hours of the audio book – consists basically of LRH wisdom and ideas regarding how to organize a universe based on a permanent peace economy. This all in the form of fictional events, speeches and narrative.

The arrangement was that if any of the major societies of all the universes ever got belligerent, they would all be blown to smithereens by special weapons teleported to their capital cities and related locations from secret locations throughout the universes. Their first job, therefore, was to police each other and ensure none got out of hand. This is the “carry a very big stick” part. That the secret teleport locations were never constructed was of little consequence; the “big stick” worked.

The grizzled and craven diplomats that had to be convinced that peace would work in place of their planned wars to solve the economic collapse brought about by the demise of the Psychlo Empire were perhaps the biggest challenge. LRH’s account of these negotiations was tense and intriguing.

The “Selachee” bankers were handled by extremely cunning means, and ultimately became friendly.

Further discoveries were made about the history of Psychlo which made it clearer what had happened there.

A new kind of surgery was invented which allowed the few remaining Psychlos to have their brain implants removed and feel comfortable among other sentient beings for the very first time.

A combination of technical innovation – which had actually been suppressed by the Psychlos – and the unleashed creative power of countless ordinary people finally released from the terrible lie that they were no more than “mere animals” resulted in a level of prosperity and happiness throughout the universes unlike any had ever known or anything that had ever been recorded in millions of years of histories.

Perhaps this could some day come to be. I know the author wanted to encourage us to at least try.

Institutionalized Crime: Banking

4 July 2016
shark

Member of animal superorder Selachii.

In Part 28 Jonnie Tyler finally finds out who the “small gray man” is. He is a banker, portrayed by LRH as a member of the alien race called the Selachee.

The planet Psychlo, as Jonnie has just learned on his own by sending fancy video cameras out into space using the transshipment platform, was blown up a little over a year ago when Jonnie managed to secretly send a load of bomb-filled coffins there. The huge nuclear bombs blew down into Psychlo, held in on top by a tremendously strong protection shield. The explosions reached its molten core and eventually turned the whole planet into a small star.

Psychlo was the home planet of Intergalactic Mining, which had taken out a loan from their bank about a thousand years earlier to purchase Earth from the government. The Psychlo Empire had discovered the planet after finding a map of its location on a space probe launched from Earth. According to the bank, Psychlo had “legal title” to the planet, which had been transferred to Intergalactic at the time of the sale. The mortgage had a payoff period of over 2,000 years. The company had stopped payments on the mortgage a year ago, when Johnny had succeeded – unknowingly – to destroy its home planet.

The bank was looking for the new legal holder of the title so it could serve loan delinquency papers on them.

Does this sound ridiculous? It happens every day on Earth, on a much smaller scale.

Of course, at the level of a planet, it is ridiculous. Not because of the concept of “legal title” but because of how the law favors appropriation of lands (or planets, or space) by force, with no further responsibilities or liabilities attached. This is law written by the conqueror and is unjust on the face of it. Yet we deal with such laws every day.

Did the native inhabitants of any lands on Earth have any say in the “laws” that governed the disposition of those lands when Europeans overran them by force? Of course not. They were required to learn European law to retain any control at all over any piece of their former territories. From a more humanitarian viewpoint – or even from the viewpoint of “natural law” – what occurred when Europe overran the Americas was theft, plain and simple. In all of the Americas, there is very little if any “legal title” that can be traced back to a real, human, transaction between friendly parties.

But banks set up a legal system that would favor their interests. And I can only imagine that they used various forms of blackmail and propaganda, as needed, to bring pressure on the writers of those laws.

I haven’t finished re-reading (listening to) the book yet, and I don’t remember how Jonnie solves this problem.

There are obvious basic principles of respect and responsibility that could be applied in such situations. The first and most obvious is that an inhabited planet should not be considered “fair game.” If it can be demonstrated that any individual, group, or society is occupying and taking care of an area of space, that gives them “title” to that area. For many reasons, use of land – or space – cannot be governed by quite the same rules that cover personal property such as clothing, furniture, tools. Yet the bankers have distorted law in that direction, while overlooking certain obvious contradictions.

The result in many places is that land can be bought and sold as if it were private property, while if stolen by certain protected parties, will be considered as belonging to them regardless of the act of theft.

I you want to wreck your shirt and buy a new one every week, that’s your choice. But you can’t treat land – or planets – that way. A conqueror that kills a planet or its inhabitants, or sells them into slavery, has no right to legal title and incurs a debt to the inhabitants or their survivors. That our laws should protect such a conqueror is only institutionalized crime.

My study of this subject has only taken me as far as Henry George’s book Progress and Poverty. I found his basic ideas very persuasive, and I recommend the book. Law, however, can always be broken and re-written by force. This is an irreducible fact of life. So, to go far, one must speak softly, but carry a very big stick.
