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.

Storm Clouds Gathering

27 September 2015

A peace activist speaks out

About five years ago a young man who wanted his children to live on a war-free planet started a website called StormCloudsGathering.com and started making and posting videos on the subject on his site and on a YouTube (a Google company) channel.

His videos were short and to the point. He used reasonably reliable information, had a very good announcing voice, and learned how to make videos of quite good quality using images from the web. His audience on his YouTube channel started growing. At some point, he made a decision to “monetize” his YouTube videos and work at the project full time. With the income flow from the channel, he could scrape by and have time to cover more topics that were important to him.

Today his YouTube channel has 468,555 subscribers. His total views is over 46 million. Then just recently, according to a post he made on the 23rd of September, some, then all, of his videos were demonetized by Google. Apparently they have a new policy that monetized videos can’t be controversial. However, it’s not clear that they are enforcing this rule fairly, and this rule itself demonstrates the anti-free-speech middle-class belief that controversy is not commercially viable, though, oddly, large sectors of the economy totally rely on conflict.

So this young man is no longer able to make a living acting as an “alternative” media outlet (and a very popular one, at that). He will have to cut back on his video production to make time for some other sort of income-making activity, or appeal for listener donations all the time the way National Public Radio (and TV) do.

George Orwell (pen name of Eric Arthur Blair, an anti-totalitarian British writer) fancifully placed a nightmare story of complete state control, apparently based partly on what he was seeing in Russia under Stalin, in the year 1984. Though our loss of freedoms was not quite as described in his book by that year, that isn’t to say that no one was working on it.

A “middle-class” (for lack of a better term) distaste for controversy in personal opinion, regardless of how bad things look in general, has overtaken much of the “free” world. We find this segment of the population locked into a system where personal comfort for a lifetime seems possible, as long as no one rocks the boat. That others in different circumstances have not felt personal comfort for many lifetimes does not make that much difference to these people. That’s why we have charity, they reason. And that’s what is criminal about the middle-class approach to life. In leaning towards the comforts of materialism, they have also turned away from the spiritual realities of the situation. They think they live but once. No. They will all be returning, unaware of past existences, but back none the less. And they will have to reap the harvest of the seeds of neglect they sowed in earlier lifetimes. If things get really bad, most of them will most likely simply give up; they are spiritually that weak.

I feel no great pride or sense of superiority for being aware of these things; just a little more hope. If I can become aware of these things, if StormCloudsGathering can find some way to keep making videos, and people keep watching them, then more people can become aware of these things. And maybe some day it will be enough to make a difference.

Other News

Also on 23 September, Corey Goode posted his most recent report on his blog. This is a different sort of website. It was started less than a year ago by someone who felt more or less forced to start speaking for himself after an informal interview with him was released that made it possible for others to identify him and destroy his cover of anonymity.

Corey has about 15,000 likes on Facebook and has been extensively interviewed, especially by David Wilcock, who is doing a “TV” series with him. He claims to have spent 20 years in a secret space program during an apparent earth time of about 5 minutes. This is the most difficult part of his story to believe.

Many many people have mentioned that taxpayer and other monies are disappearing into programs that remain totally unidentified and under “blackout.” They are referred to (for better or worse) as “Black Programs” and the money spent is the “Black Budget.”

After years and years of government disinformation concerning some of the most major events of our time, it is fairly easy to convince the public that this sort of activity exists. However, because of the secrecy surrounding these activities, we have no way, short of psychic powers (which are being tried – see Courtney Brown) to find out what’s really going on. Hence, the information vacuum is intense, and Corey is one person attempting to fill it. That his information accurately portrays reality is highly questionable. That it consists of data that someone in a high-level management capacity wants people to become aware of at this time is undeniable. Corey was pushed into this by his own admission.

However, his authenticity in trying to describe for us his own experiences in this work is likewise undeniable. In this way he is a similar type of character to Andrew Basiago.

In his latest post he recounts being taken to an underground location where he attended various meetings and had an intense “mental exchange” experience with a woman describing herself as a high priestess in her realm.

What he was told was that these underground humanoid groups are responsible for the majority of “telepathic” or “channeled” contacts with Earth people in the past several decades. In this way, they were tricking us to protect themselves and their own interests and activities. However, apparently a deteriorating situation in their underground habitats has forced a change of plans. They, as an alliance, have contacted our secret space program to ask for help and protection.

The Secret Space Program

According to a few sources, like Goode and Wilcock, who rely totally on “insiders” for their data, the planet, under the leadership of the United States, has been working on a secret program to protect the planet from undue harm or interference from various ET groups. This began to really become an issue in modern times after the U.S. detonated its first atomic weapon.

Apparently, with the help of imported and back-engineered technologies (some say the craft these were obtained from were crashed on purpose), the U.S. military and a consortium of civilian groups have developed “space opera” capabilities for our planet, with means of manning and funding these projects that are all kept secret from us.

As the story goes, the original inhabitants of our space colonies were abducted into the program. The newer generations of colonists are not particularly aware of this. We have operations on the moon, on Mars, and perhaps elsewhere in the solar system. They are for the most part run by private companies and manufacture items that we trade with ET groups for things we need. As conditions on these bleak outposts are a far cry from what we enjoy on earth, new recruits, when needed, are abducted (kidnapped). It is assumed (probably correctly) that no one would volunteer to go to live in those places permanently, though the underground environments are not that bad, as long as they remain properly supplied.

A theory that recently occurred to me…

The above scenario, based on what I know, does not actually seem that far-fetched. Points that might be false or exaggerated mostly concern motive: Is there really an external threat, or were those who started this really more concerned with diminishing returns from their earth operations, due to pushes for “human rights” and an inescapable pollution problem? Do we really have some sort of time manipulation technology, or is this just an interesting way to explain Virtual Reality and implanted experiences? How long have some people on earth known that advanced ET civilizations exist?

We know from multiple reliable sources that ancient advanced Space Opera societies exist in this universe. Many of us participated in such societies before we came (were exiled) to Earth. Those societies were not super-fun, but better than nothing, I guess. Think permanent science-fiction dystopia.

The last time they began to forget about Earth and leave us alone, we experienced a Renaissance. And the idea that we could be “free men” occurred to some of us. Considering we were all trapped in biological bodies, had past-life amnesia hard-programmed in, and only live 75 years or so per body, this idea was possibly a bit overblown. But it stuck because it’s basically true.

Meanwhile, the criminal-psychopathic element on earth, which had done so well during the Dark Ages, were trying to work out how to get back what they had lost. They found the Americas, and that helped. They were able to finance the establishment of a large number of plantations and mining operations manned almost entirely by people abducted from Africa. For a while, life was good again; great profits were being made at the expense of the workers, as was proper from their point of view.

The U.S. call for “independence,” followed by that of most other American colonies, was a setback. It took about 100 years to totally handle just the basic problem of loss of power and influence, which was sealed by the adoption in the U.S. of the Federal Reserve system, and personal federal income taxes. Since then, the world has been involved in almost constant warfare, with taxpayers (the workers) incurring the entire debt for these activities and thus hopelessly in debt to the bankers; a new kind of slavery.

At some point, it seems, it was recognized that this, too, would come to pass. And so the psychopaths, in their never-ending quest to destroy, with the help of those they have the most undue influence over – broadly, the upper middle (professional, management) classes – began a program to colonize space and to start up trade with ET. The same basic modus operandi has been used, except this time it was kept a total secret from the local population. All sorts of cover stories have been used for various different earth publics. A “make the world safe for Democracy” approach was used on the masses, who were too busy trying to join the upper middle classes, or at least the middle class, to analyze the data carefully. For the more discerning intellectuals and creative people, a variety of stories about psychic contact, benevolent ETs, Ascension and such other nonsense were spun. As psychic phenomena are real, it was thought these stories would keep that audience going practically indefinitely, which has been the case so far.

A few people, such as Hubbard, tried to mess with these plans, but a constant black PR campaign seems to keep this at a “minor annoyance” level for most of the blood suckers.

Most of the upper middle classes, who the psychopaths rely on get things done, have been coaxed with good salaries, perks, and stories of “evolution” that sound terribly scientific, to go along with all this, as far as they are aware of it, as a sort of inevitable necessity that should result in at least “the best” surviving should anything go seriously wrong on earth (concerning which the psychopaths do all in their power to make look like a good possibility), while everyone else gets “harvested” (as Catherine Austin-Fitts likes to put it).

The problem is that this plan, as all the prior ones, is insanity and is basically no fun for the majority of people on earth. Until we learn how to successfully disagree with it, we suffer.

My bench gets some upgrades

My work bench may one day be an important source of income for me. In some ways it is already, as that’s how I kept up with electronics, which is partly why I was able to land my current job.

So I have been investing in it a bit. I recently procured a tool cabinet (made of steel sheet metal) to help me get more control over my storage problems. And I have pushed by “tower #3” – the Tower of Power with Bungalow – up to an operational status.

Unlike my previous two towers (see Tale of Two Towers), this one resides in a rear corner of my bench, and only a small desktop unit (the bungalow) is within reach. All the contraption does is supply power for my projects before the boards are assembled into self-powered enclosures. I decided that this was the most-needed function. Another bench-top unit houses a couple of digital multi-meters and a continuity tester. I use these all the time.

The “work bench improvement project” continues with various efforts to consolidate parts storage, create modules for prototyping, experimental, and demonstration purposes, and throw away redundant and trashy stuff. The current effort focuses on finishing projects that I started earlier.

A State Senator Visits my Church

20 September 2012

Tomorrow is International Peace Day.

Peace One Day website.

My church wanted to acknowledge this day. And so a politician who works with our Youth For Human Rights group was invited to come to our church and speak to us. This politician is a woman.

Her audience was small, but we are good listeners. She decided to tell us about efforts being made to include women in the peace-making process. She told us that in the year 2000 the United Nations had officially committed itself to include more women in policy-making roles, and in peace-making. She told us that, more recently, the Obama administration had made a similar commitment. She was proud of these announcements. She felt they were something that we could build on. Women often feel the brunt of war, she said. They should have a say in making peace.

Like many people, I had never heard of the International Day of Peace. It was first declared in 1981, by the United Nations General Assembly. It was originally intended to fall on the opening day of the annual meetings of the United Nations General Assembly. Later, a Briton – founder of Peace One Day – got the idea to give the day a specific date, and the UN agreed to this on 11 September 2001.

The irony of this timing is so striking that it is hard to believe that it was a coincidence.

The site linked to above tells the story of Peace Day, starting with the campaign to give it a specific date, and coming up to the present. This year, the intention is to have a Global Truce on this date.

In the real world, peace work depends on a set of technologies loosely known as “conflict resolution.” Scientology has a technology to contribute to this subject. It is called “Third Party Investigation” and is described briefly in this post. You can find out more about this technology at the Volunteer Ministers website here.

When I don’t cry on hearing of more women and children killed, more cities destroyed, more threats of violence by national leaders, it is only because I get tired of crying all the time.

We can solve this. We just have to discover more effective things to do about it.

Here is something Ron wrote in 1950, and one reason why I consider him my friend:

There is a higher goal, a better goal, a more glorious victory than gutted towns and radiation-burned dead. There is freedom and happiness and plenty and a whole Universe to be won.

He who would not see it is far from worthy to rule. He would indulge his hates is too insane to advise.

How much can Man conquer? He loses if he conquers Man. He wins if he conquers his own fears and conquers then the stars.

(Dianetics p488)

Why I Don’t Sleep

22 August 2012

Women and children account for almost 80% of the casualties of conflict and war as well as 80% of the 40 million people in the world who are now refugees from their homes. It is one of the unspoken facts of militarism that women often become the spoils of war, their deaths are considered collateral damage and their bodies are frequently used as battlegrounds and as commodities that can be traded.

From an article written by Lucinda Marshall and published on Sunday, December 18, 2004 by CommonDreams.org

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Some 18,000 children die every day because of hunger and malnutrition and 850 million people go to bed every night with empty stomachs, a “terrible indictment of the world in 2007,” the head of the U.N. food agency said.

As reported in the USA Today online edition of 17 February 2007.

“Children living on the streets in Delhi are often exposed to various forms of abuse and also get embroiled in crime. As per a report ‘Surviving the Streets’ published last year there were 50,000 children on the streets in Delhi and it was found that one of the major threats that street children experienced was abuse.”

Ashok Singh Jha of the Dr. A. V. Baliga Memorial Trust, an organization working for women’s and children’s welfare. As reported in The Hindu newspaper online edition of 28 June 2012.

Are you sick yet? Or should I find more? How can anyone on this planet get a good night’s sleep if they are aware of the above?

A being should be able to choose what game it wants to play each lifetime.

But someone learned a long long time ago that if you killed someone who didn’t want to die, that being would be more likely to play that game the next time around. In the trillions of years since this has been discovered, only about 2-1/2 percent of the population has been coerced into “liking” this game. About 20 percent more go along with it because they don’t think they have a choice. And the rest of us suffer – or not, if we are very lucky.

The new game is: Deprive the 2-1/2 percent of the 20 percent helping them. That many could still be convinced that there could be another way. And without their help, those left would lose their power. Too many of us know too much now to continue to be fooled.

Some people close to me know that I have not slept well since I was a teenager. Could this be why?

We all need rest because we have bodies to keep healthy. But as soon as you are well-rested, get back up and get busy. And if you can, spend some time working on the solution to this situation. We really need your help.
