UFO History and Other News

15 December 2017

I listened to an LRH lecture recently that I think is worth quoting at length:

But what about the society at large? Do you realize that if tomorrow an invasion of Earth were threatened by some other planet, that you wouldn’t have talk about international or inter-nation-al activity like war? Nobody would be worrying about war between Bulgaria and Fulgaria. Nobody would be worrying about war, because another game was sitting there. Everybody would get a lot smarter. The incidence of psychosis and neurosis would drop most alarmingly. See what I mean?

If all of a sudden some of these flying saucers that occasionally flick around here and cause the army so much upset —they found a couple of them crashed, you know, and they say “Eek!” They’ve got molecular sealing construction plates so you can’t find any seam and when you try to go into them with a torch, why, you get cohesion of its seams. And then they can’t get it open. And they take X—rays of the machinery through the metal, you know, to get pictures to find out what’s in there because obviously nobody…They’ve had lot of fun. Terrific amount of sport they’ve engaged in this way. They’ve found some of these things, but they haven’t found enough of them and it’s not comprehensible enough to really upset anybody.

If you had a saucer suddenly pull in over Chicago and say, “Your money or your life. People of Earth, we don’t come in peace…” At-at-at-at-at! Earth would mobilize. We’re not quite sure what it would mobilize, BB guns or something, but it would mobilize. And you certainly wouldn’t have any more international war.

But after you’ve got this interplanetary war going, what would you do then? I mean, that’s going and they’ve finally settled peace and we’ve got this particular end of the galaxy all straightened out. And war is sporadic and occasional, but we have a police force engaged.

I guess this system would have to go to war with another system in order to make enough fight. And then when that was all straightened out, then this galaxy would have to go to war with another galaxy in order to get it all straightened out. And I guess this universe, then, eventually would have to go to war with another universe to get it all straightened out.

Or instead of such a silly route, we could just get down to work and process the groups of people so that they would be willing to let others live and live themselves. Now, there really is no choice, in other fields, than these two. We either put Man into a condition where he can extrovert and play a game here on Earth as himself, as individuals and as groups, or we go off and find ourselves a hot saucer and go at—at-at—at-at—at! over Chicago. There’s these two solutions. There isn’t much other solution. Now, we have a saucer rescue squad ready…[laughter]

We have—all joking aside, I’m joking, you see. We have, actually, many ways we could prevent an atomic bombing occurring here on Earth—many ways. Atomic bombing, however, is not the sole enemy which we would face. Several things are definitely preventive in the direction of atomic fission, if they are done. And I told you the other day the wrong thing to do was nothing.

Several things could be done in this particular direction. The education of the peoples of Earth, however, is the first and foremost thing that should be done. And they might be taught that they can solve each other’s games, that they can play each other’s games, that there is somebody else alive here and that Earth can be an interesting place to be and that something can happen to these things which we today call civilization, that they can go on upwards. Somebody doesn’t have to blink ’em out.

Now, wherever we look across the world, we see that Man has very, very little hope that anything could be done about anything. The measure of a civilization would be the measure of the expectancy of win by the individuals or groups of that civilization. If they have an expectancy to win, they can play the game. If they have no expectancy of winning, they want to get out of the game and start another game or they start playing games with their thumbs behind their backs—which is goofiness.

LRH – from lecture “Pan-Determinism” of 31 Dec 1954.

He was talking to a crowd in Phoenix, Arizona. I was a few months old at the time, living in Berkeley, California. Steven Greer has told us that an engineer familiar with advanced technology development programs told him that they had successfully implemented a back-engineered anti-gravity propulsion system by about October of 1954 (when I was born).

How did LRH know that the military had been playing around with flying saucers? I don’t think he’s ever said. But he had lots of friends in interesting places.

Current Events

The information war continues between those who want to paint a picture of troubled normalcy and those who want the population to “wake up” for various different reasons.

We have very little data about what is really going on, but loads of good data revealing that we are being lied to on a regular basis. On subjects as diverse as spiritual realities, ET realities, basic physics, and what causes terrorism, the mainstream media outlets continue to lie and entertain, while the alternative media outlets tell a wide range of stories from the sublime to the ridiculous – but many much more factual than the mainstream stories.

There is a persistent expectation that the world’s population will receive another “wake-up call” before too long (such as LRH’s fancied space invasion – per insiders a scenario that has been seriously considered). But so far nothing seems to materialize. Every significant event that occurs has at least two slants given to it by different sources, keeping most of us in a state of mild confusion, if not worse.

My Projects

As of today I have joined the ranks of “poor” people who are paying for medical insurance programs with the assistance of the Federal Government. Until this year, I had no real idea that this is what “Obamacare” was really all about. It wasn’t about getting the U.S. population more healthy (which is what “health care” implies, doesn’t it?), but simply to get everyone insured, so that doctors, clinics, and hospitals would get paid for every single service they deliver – successful or not – regardless of the income level of the patient.

Beyond this basic fact lies other interesting details, such as what sorts of treatment must be covered by an “acceptable” insurance program and what treatments can be ignored. Basically, anything you get from a non-MD you’ll have to pay for yourself, regardless of how effective that treatment is. It’s just a way of protecting a professional monopoly. Even psychoactive drugs – some of the least effective, most damaging treatments on the market today – must be covered because they are prescribed by psychiatrists, who are MDs.

Another ongoing project has been to salvage whatever electronic junk that I brought with me from Pullman that seems appropriate to salvage, and throw away the rest. This project was started in Pullman, but continues here in Sacramento. I have built a little “Tower of Junk” containing all my favorite older projects that were previously dismantled. It’s a little 12-inch by 12-inch by 18-inch high box, and it’s now full, with most of the “junk” included in it up and running.

With that task out of the way, I can dive into my electronic art with both feet. The main list of projects involves light (Light Emitting Diode – LED) displays that react to various environmental factors. Getting environmental sounds included has been the biggest challenge, as building good microphone amplifiers is a bit of an art. But I have a test rig up and running, and the basic idea seems promising.

I also have a code-writing project restarted after a long hiatus. This is aimed to allow the user to inspect and search large amounts of data in ways that are visually interesting and informative. I am using my own electronic library (about 150,000 files) as the test data, as it is structured but highly diverse. This data is organized according to LRH’s dynamics, and I plan to use other Scientology basics in this software.

Scientology

I continue my study of the Basic Lectures. One of these is the one quoted above. That series ended with that lecture, so I have finished that series and will soon move onto another one.

The church downtown continues to put on various events. The most recent was in observance of Human Rights Day (10 December) and featured a presentation by a local Sikh human rights activist who has been working for many years to improve awareness of religious diversity – which is part of the Sikh teaching – in California. We also watched a documentary about the aftermath of the shootings at the Sikh temple near Milwaukee in 2012.

The mainstream sees such events as “hate crimes” against minorities who are misunderstood, or confused with other groups (such as Sikhs being confused with Muslims). My Scientology training tells me that this is a very shallow explanation for such events. Whenever violence occurs the Third Party Law must be taken into account. This data has been around for 50 years, but most don’t know about it or don’t use it. That needs to change!

We have a Christmas party coming up, then a New Years event, which is always full of news.

And after that, the sun will start coming North again. Right now, it’s too cold with not enough daylight for my liking.
