Alien Dreaming Addenda: BBC Superpower promo



Thanks to Kool School for this fascinating link. I wonder if the director of this spot watches a lot of Outer Limits too- this imagery is straight out of a number of episodes, "Beholder" in particular.

  1. Hi Chris,

    Sorry this is off topic, but please take a look at this piece of news from friday regarding the Hadron Collider.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8576545.stm

    Then please watch the Flashforward episode that aired on thursday, especially the bit where the kidnapped Dr Simcoe gets asked about the experiment he conducted that resulted in people loosing consciousness. He talks about having "amplified" the original experiment.

    Friday's news about the Hadron Collider talks about "setting a record, tripling it's peak performance, each beam 3.5 trillion electron volts"

    Though the show is loosely based on the LHC, this one hell of a synch.

  3. sorry to be off topic but new episode of Caprica! such an amazing show. A post-modern mythology for sure.
    i love new cap city and there's so much that could be done with that, hopefully in comics. or would it be ironic or just logical that they would make an actual video game of it?
    Chris, About some of these terms your using (spi-fi, digital apotheosis, n what not), I was wondering if you coined them or what? for citation purposes, going to write a paper or two for class on the subject.

    All praises to thy noodly goodness, Flying Spaghetti Monster!

  4. Wow, this looks like is could have been scripted by most of the doe-eyed believer types at the Laughlin Nevada UFO conference. Except at the end, it would be the nice aliens here to help us.

    I'll add that that NON doe-eyed folks would probably agree that there "might" be alien forces out beyond our perception doing the same thing but if they wrote a script would be a little different (but not much).

    I'll add that I've spoken to one UFO contactees directly, and she said she was told to come forward in 2007. And it was for all the reasons in that 1 minute TV commercial (plus a few more). Why was she asked to to come forward in '07? Was it because if she had tried to come forward any earlier, it would have been unproductive in an era BEFROE the internet had established itself as such an important influence on our planet?

    Who knows?

    But - it was SO interesting, that the nice soft-spoken glowing "alien" in that ad needed no real introduction. It just seems any viewer would simply KNOW her benevolent agenda. The image of that nice alien is already installed in our present day mythology.

    Interesting.

  5. Totally off topic here but I just realized that Obama seeks to carve his legacy in stone tonight on the eve of March 22 (322) with "sweeping health reform" that has so many hidden loopholes (read: control over the populace). I've noticed that anything done on 3/21 or 3/22 or events that occur on those dates have impact that burns like a rising sun.

    Just putting it out there.

  6. Suki- Very interesting. I havent really gotten into FF yet so I can't comment on the sync. but thanks for the heads up.

    Kool- No probs. Cheers.

    Caleb- I thought the recent ep was a bit slo, myself. But I'm glad you're liking the show. As to the terms, they're mine as far as I know, but you can check up on them if you like!

    Clellie- I couldn't help but think of all of the Virgin sighting with that vid either. But the interesting thing is that it's purposefully present two types of humans- a past and a future branch, separated by technology.

    Carole- Well, round these parts we take it for granted that politicians are shills for someone else's agenda, so maybe we should see the significance of the date with whoever is pulling Obama's strings.

  7. That was interesting and gave me such an eerie feeling. I came across your webpage by accident a couple of months ago and I've been seeing syncs ever since. Wild stuff!

  8. It reminded me of the Abyss Directors cut, and also the talk on the internet of Harrp and mass hallucinations of Muhammed, Jesus, Buddha etc.

    Just finished part 2 of a side project I have been working on, very lo-tech but some interesting ones.

    "Eye Am That I Am" (Eye Of Ra) Part 2:
