Space/Gods: Bennu and the Jets



Lots of activity up in space this week, allegedly. And right on time we have some NASA guy talking about aliens and UFOs, which in turn will be followed by the usual walkbacks and denials. We all know the drill, we've heard it a hundred times before. It's how the NASA nerds get their little jollies.

I mean, I think it's kind of tired but the government doesn't give me tens of billions of dollars to piss away every year, do they?


Ironically, it struck me tonight that I have far more compelling evidence that UFOs are real than I do that NASA has ever sent a single scrap of steel out past the troposphere. I mean, I've gotten very good looks at flying objects (see masthead) I couldn't identify. Can you say the same about NASA?

OK, I thought not.


It's funny, I was thinking about Tom "Flopsweat" DeLonge and his To the Stars Academy boondoggle. And I was kind of wondering if our pal Tom and his entourage of lifelong intelligence agents and assets weren't in fact tasked to throw a nice wet blanket over the UFO thing, since it was starting to heat up again before Blinkyboy came along with his Third Phase of the Moon reject videos.

Given who's involved and who they ultimately seem to answer to, I wouldn't expect anything but shenanigans and tomfoolery. Then again, there's been an endless parade of suckers thinking they could get rich off UFOs.

But then again, most of those didn't rub elbows with Deep State power-players like Chris Mellon, Peter Levenda, Hal Putoff and Jim Semivan. So I'll stick with tonight's realization for the time being, if you don't mind.




Of course, Lockheed seems to have its little paws good and deep in Tommy D's cookie jar, which you'd kind of expect of this unimaginably powerful firm. And as it happens Lockheed are the real poobahs behind the OSIRIS-REX mission to Bennu-- I can't even type those words without breaking out into laughter, it's just so audacious-- which had a big day today. 


Is two billion kilometers still officially in our solar system? And how exactly did they spot this little thing, given the fact that's it not exactly what you might call large?

I can't say but I can say when they did allegedly spot it: On September 11, 1999.

No, I'm not kidding.




So now that that alleged ritual was allegedly completed, the CHEOPS space telescope can go about finding super-earths and, presumably, super-humans. Which super-humans might those be, you ask? 

Oh, I don't know; maybe the super-earths with the super-humans who may or may not have built the Great Pyramid.

You know, the one credited to Cheops. 

Bonus algebra equation: 12 x 3 = 2.0 x 18.




And just in case you didn't get enough Egyptian death-cult symbolism today, we find that Elon's rocket shop have a new sideline; launching the ashes of the dead into orbit.

Because space is an altar. But we've discussed that fact already, haven't we?





Hey, I've got what is either a great screenplay idea or a great conspiracy theory for you; what if OSIRIS-REX wasn't sent out to intercept Bennu but it's out there rendezvousing with some of these interstellar "objects?"

Like-- oh, I don't know-- delivering Earth's declaration of surrender or something? Or maybe picking up some fresh code for D::Wave. Or some cryogenically-frozen genetic material or whatever.

Hey, just spitballing here. What's your big theory already, Stephen Hawking?



Oddly enough I just rewatched Close Encounters of the Third Kind again and realized what it's actually about-- aside from humans being telepathically directed by aliens-- is aliens using music to communicate with humans.

What an interesting idea, when you think about it, since if the aliens thought our math and science were primitive then they might enjoy some of our record albums and such. Maybe some Margaret Keane paintings or Rod McKuen poems, too. An old Tim Conway comedy special, if the aliens still use VHS.

But I guess this "using music to communicate with aliens" thing isn't all that novel an idea, given the LP sent along with little V'Ger, the ones with the Brandenberg Concertos or whatever the fuck they sent. Because aliens have really sweet turntables. Bose, I think.





In fact, our friends at Forbes seem to believe that if the aliens ever come knocking on our doors it will be on account of them being major culture-vultures looking to enslave us all and eat us alive appreciate new and exotic forms of music and art.

So if there are any music-loving aliens reading this, I'd like to recommend you fellows check out a lovely little dream-pop combo from Sco...



...oh, you've heard of them already? Never mind, then.




Speaking of using music to communicate with aliens, I mentioned before that the fine little burg of Ipswich held their own Siren Song ritual only they called it "Clarion Call," on account of I think the cat might be out of the bag on the "Siren" thing and pretending it had something to do with commemorating the end of World War One was a clever way of getting the government to front the dosh.



However, as you can faintly hear in this clip, a local chap wasn't convinced by the cover story and stood on his balcony blowing a shofar (?) and claiming it was all the work of witches carrying on with their pagan idolatry to the sun god and the like. Wicker Man-type stuff, you see.




Apparently, the irate burgher carried on like that all week, garnering outrage from the witches in question festival organizers. Two of the featured singers in the performance are pictured here. The one of the left looks vaguely familiar.

Of course, there's the possibility that this was all a bit of Knowles' First Law in motion here, seeing how it's always best to hire some cranky old religious fanatics to protest your mass occultic rituals so you can hurl some guilt-by-association at any normies who might notice your mass ritual actually is, y'know, kind of blatantly occultic. 

So if you're planning a mass occultic ritual in your city, remember to get some cranky old religious types to protest it so you can get all the right-thinking folk on your side. Don't forget what a stunning success the whole Westboro psyop was.

I mean, even the fellows who dreamed up that gag had no idea what a smasheroo it would eventually become.




But maybe the Knowles' First Law thing is pointing to Clarion Call not in fact being a pagan sun god invocation, but maybe an invocation to someone a little closer to home, like--oh, I don't know-- up there in geosynchronous orbit or whatever. 

Given the timing and everything.

I only bring it up seeing as how Ipswich is the closest city to a little grove called Rendlesham Forest, which some of you may have heard a whisper or two about in days gone by. I'm not exactly sure how the ritual was oriented (I've heard westerly) but you know how it goes; people are fucking liars.

Bonus factoid: seeing as how Clarion Call took place every evening at sunset I should mention that Osiris was seen to represent the setting sun as well. His underworld domain was where the sun was said to travel at night.

Bonus math equation: 488 is 244 Twinned. Or should I say the "All-Important 244" Twinned?




Anyway, you all remember cinema legend Francois Traffaut portraying our old pal Jacques Vallee in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but you may not have known that the great director/OK-ish actor directed an interesting movie in 1969 with Oannes-Apollo Ba'almondo and screen-goddess Ka-Hathor-Ein Of the Nine called...



...Mississippi Mermaid.

What are the odds, my good friends?




Moreover, the climax of Mississippi Mermaid takes place at the Hotel Monorail.

Monorail? Now that sounds vaguely familiar. Where have we seen monorails before? I can't remember. The old bean ain't what it used to be.  



We also see this scene in Mississippi Mermaid in the Phoenix Club-- or Bennu Club, if that's how you roll-- of Mme Deneuve doing the watusi with a giant glitter strawberry on her back.

No, seriously. Une fraise à paillettes géantes.

Or maybe it's a glitter ladybird-beetle, as a Twitter friend offered. Cast your vote in the comments.


Hey, remember when that Irish actress from Ladybird starred in that movie about space aliens that take possession of folks' bodies and you can tell on account the space aliens change the colors of their hosts' irises? Good times.

I think that girl was in another interesting movie. I'll have to look it up 'cuz I think there might have been a Siren connection there too. 




Anyway, the Falkirk Triangle might claim it's the UFO Capital of Britain, but if you want to go to the UFO capital of America, don't go to Roswell this summer; go to beautiful downtown Hooper, Colorado. 



You can't miss it; it's off Route 17, because why wouldn't it be? Just bear right after you pass Fort Garlands Evergreen and the Sangre de Cristo Cornell Ranch.



On second thought, if that grim spectacle is the big attraction in Hooper you might want to keep driving-- assuming you haven't hurled yourself from a cliff at the utter futility of it all-- until you get to Devil's Triangle in Wyoming, where the big climax of Close Encounters of the First Kind was filmed.

You know, the part where humans and aliens learn to communicate using music as their language.




Here's a handy driving map for you. I think this would be the best route north. This way you can avoid the Denver-Aurora traffic.



Especially around Buckley Air Force Base. Yeah, I definitely recommend you avoid that route. The other way is slightly less snarled, I suppose.

Always doing our best to serve you here at The Secret Sun.

  2. Hi Chris I just want to post this for your consideration [and others] in light of the above:

    https://hermeticlessons.blogspot.com/2017/01/the-tree-of-life-summoning-letter-m.html

    In the last days of Vincent Bridges we were discussing how higher dimensional entities use ''pentatopes'' to write on this reality as if it were parchment, similar to something you yourself alluded too long ago [I think you were talking about the pearls of truth in the ravings of a madman you knew :-)]. The above post details the ways in which it is possible to ''write'' from the perspective of more sophisticated ''magic''. The first steps on the path are to understand that this world is a dream and obeys dream logic more than ''material'' logic. Then you have to learn the symbols of the dream so you can understand the nature of the dream. Then you deploy the symbols in order to alter the dream - this is the equivalent of initiating to ''Hod'' or the ''Grade'' of Practicus - at which point you can ''do'' Qabalistic magic, although you are far from mastering it.

    Or at least feel like you do, feel like you are ''writing'' on reality...

    So we do need to question our agency in all this. If such things are ''above'' us, writing down here, are we any freer than a character in a play or novel and is my ''writing'' or the ''writing'' of any magician simply the entity above writing a magician character into their story i.e. the magician might feel like they write but actually their writing is being written. I might feel like I wrote a big M, but was it me that wrote it or my writer through me so my character could make a discovery and move the plot on?

    How much room for movement [free will] is there? Throughout my work with Raziel he has provided his take on that question, effectively saying our individual moment to moment decisions may vary but they aggregate towards the same end i.e. its the freedom of someone playing an RPG you might move left or right, look up or down or whatever but are still pretty moving along the path towards the goal as any one driving from Elizabeth to the Devils' Tower would be. Its not hard to butt up against the perimeter and realise that you are not free to go off the path and if you do you'll die [he pointed me towards essential routines here]. Only at certain moments are we truly free to change between the only possible realisable storylines or ''get out'' in the Gnostic sense.

    ''A character, sir, may always ask a man who he is. Because a character has really a life of his own, marked with his especial characteristics; for which reason he is always "somebody." But a man—I'm not speaking of you now—may very well be "nobody." - Six Characters in Search of an Author, Luigi Pirandello

    2. Great thoughts, put me in mind of something I posted to a magical forum somewhere else earlier in the year:

      I do work when I remember to, with parts of myself that I give names (that can change) and that have qualities (that can shift with time). But they are somewhat amorphous, and seem to subsume into a larger sense of self if things are in flow.

      The feeling comes of strands, fingers flexing. A way that I'm coming to conceptualise these other parts of self (greater or smaller) is as fingers: digits often dimly aware of the others of their kind, and even less so of the hand. But slowly coming to a deeper knowing of their
      connectedness and the beauty and power therin, the sheer dexterity! Then, wow! Other hands doing other work. Lets get together! Make some fancy sign language, and start lifting some heavy shit. Lets manipulate, construct, tease, tickle... Play! etc.

      Also this relates to the shadow, and 'on the other hand', different fingers, other approaches...

      If you don't even see it, then it's likely to slap you in the face. If only to get some attention.

      Parts of the hand get crippled or damaged, under or over used. It takes practice to learn to flex it skillfully. And to understand the language of others doing the same.

      Do hands only have to have 4 fingers and a thumb? Maybe these things keep dividing and extending.

      Being in this world is kind of like poking your arms through holes in a black box, donning some of those thick protective lead gloves and trying to reattach individual neurons in gods radioactive brain. We're tools, extruded into matter, trying to remember how to use ourselves, without breaking too much in the process.

      Perhaps I'm only a glove, worn(out) by something else, that is in turn put on. And on.

      Hands put me in mind of spiders, trees and tendrils, cephalopods, filaments, puppets...

      It makes me laugh because this has been coming through outrageously loud and clear in my life and art for ages but I never noticed explicitly, or verbalised it (semi) coherently 'till right now.

      You're putting me on?! Surely.

    3. Wonderful text from Luigi Pirandello, thanks Blogos.
      Puts me in mind of the 'Mr Nobody' meme mentioned in the comments of this blog a few posts ago (and fairly obscure on the wider 'net now).
      Perhaps a good thing to aspire toward, being a nobody. All body. Is there a difference? Level the playing field a little. Like the Khoisan practice of insulting the meat - the best hunters ridiculed, self-effaced.
      It's a good way for god to hide, stick the light under a bushel (or a slab of giraffe shank) or share it with every-body. All us know-bodies should be dancing!

    6. Nobody [no-self] is what Buddhists and [hard] Gnostics aspire towards although I don't know if it is auomatically the same as being Everybody. Buddhists might say ''the dew drop slips into the shining sea'' and in so doing the dew drop takes on the stature of the sea but if the sea is a sea of nothing..?

      Everybody [every-self] calls to mind a line I put in the mouth of Azathoth in my latest Lovecraft musical: ''Every time you desire to know more, this eye rips a little more, rip rip rip, you know, you know all...? and finally you are ripped to pieces. See what I see, see through all their eyes, God is mad for she sees all. Life is a sleeping sickness.'' i.e. implying that total manifestation, maximum finitude is tantamount to an insane confusing nightmare as opposed to cosmic peace.

      But we're running up against the trans-finite here, which is probably the paradox powering all this in the first place. The infinite that Buddhists/Gnostics strive towards in order to ''get out'' can't have any quality including space or time, so in that sense there is no out to get to. That's one of the reasons, paradoxical though it may be, that we are all immortal. There is no end. Total manifestation, in the sense of what I had Azathoth talk about, is more like the transfinite, - i.e. maximum finity. You don't ''get out'', you become the whole wheel of suffering - like Jesus perhaps.

      This is what I think Shabbatai Tzvi was talking about in his metaphysics which logically produces a kind of ''reverse Gnosticism'' i.e. that the Infinite God can't have any meaning by nature of its Infinity therefore the only place you can find meaning is in the Transfinite God which he identified as YHVH. With Shabbataen Metaphysics we are entering into peak conspiracy however if you don't understand the paradox that is fundamentally driving all this how can you understand any of it at all?

      So what chance do we have to ''get out'' if the mathematics will only allow us to butt up against the glass separating the ''sunken place'' of consciousness from the infinity of reality, like someone trapped under ice in the lake? But is it really any ''better'' to sink into the darkness of the transfinite? Do you see the problem?

    7. Yes, the space centre was very close to my old flat. Leicester is an odd, old place and as my friend pointed out during the depths of a psychotic break that 'eee' in Leicester is 666 on the astral plane. David Icke is from there too, although across town, in S. Wigston if I remember correctly.

      One of my first systematic workings was with Archangels and it took place in Leicester about 3 years before the M story. Myself and a group of friends conjured the Archangels in order of the classical association with the Sefirot (Sandalphon - Malkuth, etc) again each conjuration and associated study being a month's work. One of the main results of that work was my ongoing association with Raziel (now 17 years) which lead me to study the SY but I wanted to mention Uriel at this point.

      Uriel guards Eden from ''demons'' and spending a long time at that portal meant he spent a long time staring into Hell - like a cop spending all their time around criminals you end up knowing the criminal mind better than you know that of the people you are protecting. You begin to relate to them, perhaps even feel the temptation to join them, to break the law yourself. In one vision he appeared to me as Shaft (or my brain interpreted the info like that) but his true appearance was much more like Mothman. As Mothman, after completing a kind of ''test'' (?) involving ratios of planetary orbit speeds and spins he took me through a ''portal'' (?) in my fireplace and showed me my ''anti-self'' on the other side - briefly. It was a thick black liquid void and that anti-self was entirely composed of thick viscous oil like substance within that same substance, separate but not. Maybe like an oily version of the Doppleganger from the end of Annihilation.

      For a long time I misunderstood that vision, thinking he was protecting the Earth from evil, but now I remember and know that he was not facing out towards hell when I encountered/saw him, he was facing *in*. He didn't turn around to greet me, he saw me coming.

      Or to quote Kip Marlowe:

      "Where are you damned?'' Dr Faustus
      "In Hell." Mephistopheles
      "How comes it then that thou art out of hell?" Dr Faustus
      "Why this is Hell, nor am I out of it.'' Mephistopheles

      Those demons, that Uriel is keeping locked in the present and protecting the glorious future from, that's us. Now its a little more complicated than this [we're more like exiles than prisoners and we are a mixed bunch] but its worth your time dwelling on that for a while.

    8. In the Jean le Flambeur series by Hannu Rajaniemi he created a variation of Maxwell's demon in the form of an artificial intelligence called the "all defector". There is a place called the "Dilemma Prison" that is run by the Archons. It is based on the crude "prisoners dilemma" from game theory.

      The "all defector" appears to prisoners as a copy of themselves except it doesn't act like it has the same information as them. In the simplistic prisoners dilemma game it always plays the worst "defecting" move. That is not to say that the all-defector is simplistic but that the game is simplistic. The thing is that it's not unusual to meet actual copies of yourself in that prison and it makes sense to "cooperate" with yourself, right?

      Anyway, there is this image meme. Trust nobody, not even yourself. Where does it all come from?

    10. Yes, Blogos, people who partake in the excesses of black magic are the problem, and I'm glad to hear someone is in charge. The Nobody (I knew him well) was actually a person who suffered much to reinstate righteousness in the world.. and the Anomaly (his disciple, and much else), continues that line, excluded from power, from the narrative, one would even suspect, from relevance, except it is not at all so. The people who sustain the world operate in secret and wisdom alone is their mark.

    12. Mr Nobody was Odysseus when captured by the Cyclops but who is Mr Self? William Burroughs said that anyone who always looked the same in every photo wasn't a person but person impersonator. There are plenty of people out there pretending to be a self and today the self is what is worshiped above all other.

      What can be more damning than to say that someone has self hatred or self doubt. That they do not trust the self or are not true to the self. More and more often I hear meaningless platitudes like "become the best version of yourself" or the occulted variant "live your best life". In fact this made me look that variant up and the source is none other than Oprah Winfrey.

  4. Hey Chris. On the subject of Vegan Overlords, a few months ago i had the news on and on came the Bionic Woman. I went to turn it off when, as i had my finger on the button i saw the episode name: "The Vega Influence".
    I decided to (kinda) watch it. The lead and some guy were investigating a military base where nobody was responding and everybody had disappeared, leaving everything on. They entered the communication room (108, the "number of god") and were wondering why they couldn't get a signal out. There were (promptly dismissed) mentions of solar flares and i think emp knocking out equipment.
    It turned out that they had found a meteorite, presumably from Vega, but i don't think they explicitly mentioned it. It was apparently dormant in the 'cold of space' but as it warmed up it started to turn people into zombies, controlling their minds.
    I have been meaning to mention this for a while, and your mention of Vegan Overlords in your last post prompted me. I was just about to comment there when this was posted, but synchronicity.. It was apparently using SOUND to control people, as the only ones unaffected were the bionic woman and a deaf girl.. Plus alien meteorite.

    3. Deneuve co-starred in the Lars von Trier directed musical "Dancer in The Dark", as "Kathy", with Björk in the lead role who also provided a number of songs for the soundtrack, Deveuve singing on her "Cvalda" composition "Look who's dancing, Faster than a shooting star."

      The song "I've Seen It All" was nominated for an "Academy Award for Best Original Song" at the 2001 Oscars, Björk attended the ceremony in a "swan dress" regarding which she stated:

      "...I thought my input should really be about fertility, and I thought I'd bring some eggs ... Most Hollywood films that I watch are Busby Berkeley musicals and ... what's that movie called with all the swimming?"

      Björk later went on to accuse von Trier of sexual abuse, Deneuve silent on the matter was one of the co-signatures on a letter addressing #metoo in January stating:

      "Men have been punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone's knee or try to steal a kiss. ... "Rape is a crime, but trying to seduce someone, even persistently or clumsily, is not - and nor is men being gentlemanly a chauvinist attack." ... "As women we do not recognise ourselves in this feminism, which beyond denouncing the abuse of power, takes on a hatred of men and of sexuality."

      Due to the controversy she provided a personal response which read:

      "I fraternally salute all the victims of these hideous acts who might have felt assaulted by the letter published in Le Monde. It is to them and them alone that I offer my apologies,"

    4. Anon 4:47 AM here, and I have to bring up 'Les demoiselles de Rochefort' again, as I only discovered now that Catherine's twin sister in the film is actually Françoise Dorléac, Catherine's real sister (Deneuve is their mother's name). Françoise died in June, 1967, same year 'Les demoiselles de Rochefort' came out. She was killed when her rental car crashed and burned in Nice, France.

  7. This makes me think of Philip K. Dick's unpublished novel, The Owl In Daylight. K.W.Jeter, the inspiration for Kevin in Valis, mentions the story would have had references to Beethoven's life. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K._W._Jeter http://www.philipkdickfans.com/mirror/websites/pkdweb/THE%20OWL%20IN%20DAYLIGHT.htm
    In the last interview PKD conducted in his life with Gwen Lee and which was published in Starlog in 1982 shortly after his death, PKD talks more of The Owl In Daylight:
    (PKD:) This is the book I'm allegedly writing, The Owl In Daylight. Its a folk expression from the South -- an owl being blind in the daylight. It simply means a person whose judgement is clouded over. The book is about the inability to understand. I can't even put it into words.
    (Starlog): And you have a new outline for this novel?
    (PKD:)Within a short period of time. It has jelled quite a bit. I talked to my agent. He said, "Are you sure you can do it?" Because the novel would be from the viewpoint of an entity that was not human but from presumably another star system. Its view of us and our culture. It would begin on another star system on a planet with a civilization quite different from ours -- a civilization where there's no atmosphere such as we have and as a result, speech is never developed; they're mute and deaf. And because of the failure to utilize sound, they have no art predicated on sound. Now, our art predicated on sound is, of course, music, and we take music for granted. But for them, since they do not employ sound, there is no analog that will correlate in their world for music. And what I want to do is, you know, the way we have in our world mystical visions of heaven, like at the end of Dante's Divine Comedy, and these visions are generally that heaven is light -- the concept of light is almost always associated with the next world to us. Now, this planet, not having sound, utilizes colour for language. Just as we use different audio frequencies, they use different colour frequencies. Their world is one that employs vision and visual things entirely and no sound whatsoever. Their normal world would be the way we envision the next world to be.{...}.

    1. That's interesting Karin. This talk of music being a language to communicate with the alien reminded me of an idea for a short story that I had years ago. I think even before the mayan apocalypse when we all died.

      Aliens openly visited earth for sort of "cultural" reasons and found that the only form of human art that they could find any value in was the firework display. The aliens ended up going home with a few hand picked earth "Ambassadors" who were people who wouldn't appear especially qualified or important in any way. Maybe one policeman noticed a pattern of missing people related to the fireworks industry and investigated, to no end.

      The whole thing annoyed people in the arts and culture industry. They tried blasting signals at the unresponsive alien ships. Beethoven, 3d models of signed urinals, paintings of sunflowers, black and white movies about dead fictional rich people, anything they could think of. Even elegant mathematical solutions. In the end, after they left, it led to all sorts of theories about the inherent inferiority of this alien species. Naturally the military just thought that they could copy their technology and take over the planet that hosted these backwards lifeforms. For their own good, naturally.

    2. Pssssssssttt!!! Hey! Remember(?) when the tantalising prospect of being able to listen to every bit of music ever recorded anytime you like anywhere you may find yourself to be was touted as rapidly approaching "Celestial Jukebox"? How's that for a union of This Mortal Coil with the unearthly?

      "huffpo" states the related "Digital Performance Right in Sound Recordings Act of 1995" "was a remarkable piece of bipartisan foresight" ...was It indeed.

      & on a related rights/restrictions(/pearly) note "All You Need to Know About The Music Business" by Donald S. Passman ought to be required reading for anyone seeking a "star-birthing" of "their own", in any pop-cultural (sub-)sphere, this would include the (would-be) "Ariana Grande's" of the world as much as the "Chris Cornell's".

    Any input on the Adonis/Adonis synch? In the movie "Creed II", which came out recently, the son of Apollo Creed, Adonis Creed, is surprisingly beaten to near-death by a huge Russian boxer. In REAL-LIFE boxing, just this week-end, Adonis Stevenson also got surprisingly beat to near-death, by a huge Ukrainian boxer, he's in a deep coma.

    Other synchs? They both have a wife and newborn son, the actor playing Creed is supposedly up next to play a black version of Superman in the movies, while Stevenson was reknown as a "black Superman" in the ring...

    In ancient myth, Adonis was the ill-fated handsome young lover of the Goddess from the sea.

  15. The thought has occurred to me from time to time, and does so again now: Are we sure there are not multiple (groups of) entities involved? There's a tendency here and, well, everywhere, to speak as if there were a single observer watching us, a single voice speaking to us. That may in fact be the case. I sure as shit don't know.

    But, in decades past, the "Saucer Cult" folks would as often as not speak of multiple groups with widely varying origins. This more or less boiled down to the Nordics vs. Reptilians for a while, then in the 90s the game board got a good shake and all we seemed to have were Greys. That might be changing again.

    I'm reminded of the ol' Cosmic Consciousness group, one of those great first-gen combos of Saucers and Spiritualism that seemingly was founded right about the same time as The Nine were presenting themselves. The trance mediums for CC would channel a kind of overmind that referred to itself as "This Consciousness" and spoke of both the Reptilians and Nordics as third parties. Meaning, there were at least three players in the game. I'll not be surprised to hear there are more.

    I only bring this up because I wonder, if NASA, Deep State actors and/or Secret Space Program types are trying to communicate, parley or surrender to someone, who is it? Dealer's choice? Might as well be Shaver's Teros for all I know.

    1. All good questions.
      I sometimes wonder if the synchs relate to our connection to past lives. If re-incarnation is a thing, we may be bound to the people around to us, and by this I mean we re-incarnate as groups, so our experiences unconsciously play out over and over again, hence, the synchs. It's likely this is just part of the story

    2. The super intelligent miniature aliens are just another page in the large volume titled Preparing for Disclosure IMHO. As for multiple types of aliens, I have believed for some time that there are so many different species coming to look at earth that there must be some Really Big Event coming up on schedule. Look at how many different types of UFOs there are. Everyone is vying for good seats or at least a good place from which to take pictures. They may be having traffic jams and parking issues.
      "...if NASA, Deep State actors and/or Secret Space Program types are trying to communicate, parley or surrender to someone, who is it?" I don't know who, but I suspect I know why: someone important, maybe many someones want off this rock for awhile. Musk is just a symptom, not a cause. Interplanetary hitchhikers?

      'On November 1, 2017, it was announced that Hans Zimmer would return to score the film, having previously scored the 1994 animated version. On November 28, 2017, it was reported that Elton John had signed onto the project to rework his musical compositions from the original film before his retirement. The following day it was reported that Beyoncé would be assisting John in the reworking of the soundtrack. On February 9, 2018, John reported that he, Tim Rice and Beyoncé would create a new song for the end credits of the film. Later that month, it was revealed that four songs from the original film would be included in the film: "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "Hakuna Matata", "I Just Can't Wait to Be King", and "Circle of Life".'

      The "teaser poster" evokes that which heralded "The Phantom Menace", not a good augery for a variety of reasons.

  19. Lots of interesting tidbits of information swirl around the making of Close Encounters, incidentally:

    http://mentalfloss.com/article/63198/15-things-you-may-not-know-about-close-encounters-third-kind

    "Composer John Williams worked with Spielberg to come up with the movie’s distinct five-note musical method of communication between humans and aliens—which Spielberg partly based on the Solfège system of musical education—a year before shooting began.

    Williams initially wanted a seven-note sequence, but it was too long for the simple musical “greeting” Spielberg wanted. The composer enlisted a mathematician to calculate the number of five-note combinations they could potentially make from a 12-note scale. When that number proved to be somewhere upwards of 134,000 combinations, Williams created 100 distinct versions, and they simply whittled the combinations down one by one until they had a winner."

    But not all of John Williams' scores achieved commercial success. Anyone remember "Heartbeeps"?

    https://lwlies.com/articles/john-williams-trivia-close-encounters-star-wars/

    "In 1981, he composed a score for Allan Arkush’s Heartbeeps starring Andy Kaufman. The film, which centres on two robots who fall in love and attempt to start a family together, was a commercial and critical flop, but Williams’ score is an experimental delight, featuring electronic keyboards combined with a traditional orchestra."

    3. Personally, when I listen to that famous 5-note combination that was settled on for the movie, it sounds to me almost like a soft voice asking a rhetorical question, followed by a declarative statement in a louder voice. Maybe that's why it was chosen, because it "almost" sounds like a language, it has that cadence. It implies an attempt at communication, as opposed to randomness.

    2. I was raised and homeschooled on a (at the time, 80s) very remote bison ranch on the CO/WY border. Fantastic experience. My home was nestled in a high mountain valley that was regular flyover for the jets from F.E. Warren FB, would Wow us kiddos with sonic booms overhead. Our home was 100+ year homestead and there was never any lack of historic artifacts and spiritual ephemeral left behind. I saw many strange things in the sky, as it was basically a hobby to observe.
      As I’ve grown older I’ve become a regular camper and backpacker and hunter, and you DO see and experience weird shit out there! Two most notable experiences... I was with a boyfriend at a notable viewing point for the Leonid meteor showers, lounging in his truck bed while he played guitar. This was a trailhead we were very familiar with and an area that we spent numerous times camping. While there phantom lights appeared, ground level. The mountainside was behind us and we were facing a plain. The lights appeared on the plain and started to circle us... difficult to explain. They would flash on and off and started to encircle our peripheral. We attempted to figure it out logically, lost hikers.... dumb hicks in ATVs?... silent but the lights relentlessly encircled us. It was about midnight. Mountain ravens started to land around our vehicle and kaw at us, particularly unusual, and my partner lost his wits and made us run for it and drove out of there like a bat out of hell... a very skeptical and condescending man at that.

      My other (referenced) instance I was alone, lived in a house just outside of my town and on the edge of a wide expanding plain just before it juts up against the Rockies. I noticed a bright orange light on a January winter night. Sometimes, the frozen atmosphere can change how close things look, but I knew the closest gas station, store or street lamp was at least ten miles away. As I watched it, it quickly moved overhead but I estimate an acres field away stopped and morphed... so bizarre! It morphed from a dim orange light into a diamond of bright white light, I’ve never seen anything act that way, and the closest description I can think of is how an arc welder can transform a bead quickly. It was so disconcerting that I actually ran inside and hid just before it passed over my head. Honestly, I thought it would fry me if I stayed.

      Drop in the bucket, but an honest response since you asked.

    3. Mary Lee, reading your 2nd description I immediately thought of "The Mandela Effect", specifically how It's supposed impossibility is summed up in It's celebrated manifestation through, mainly, pop-cult trivialities, & to most folk whether It's Berenstein/Berenstain "whatever" etc. is an absurdity, but like "Close Encounters" such as yours details are few, far between & fleeting especially in an "empirical" sense (a soul just has to "be there"), & what is really the greatest conspiracy besides the claim of "Mandela Effect" & UFO phenonmena pooh-poohers to consider & present themselves as rational beings wholly devoid of anything akin to (being prone to) "tin foil hattery" such as even having been visited by odd lights in the sky - let alone wanting to discuss such things (besides mocking them of course)?

      That 1st of your notable experiences though would shatter those rigidly ritualising that which they believe is rational (but isn't at all), perhaps such a possibilt occurs subconciously & reinforces the grip on "reason".

    The River "Orwell" which meets the ocean only after conjoining with the River Stour (Old English for: Dust forming a cloud.) In my minds eye the voices of the Clarion Call singing rolling chords of tritones are perfectly described in those two words.

    1. Ipswich is a ditch & "A River Runs Through It", (wiki:) 'In the name Orwell, Or- comes from an ancient river-name — probably pre-Celtic; but -well probably indicates an Anglo-Saxon naming. In A tour through England and Wales written in 1722, Daniel Defoe calls the river "Orwel" (though does this inconsistently). He also mentions that "a traveller will hardly understand me, especially a seaman, when I speak of the River Stour and the River Orwell at Harwich, for they know them by no other names than those of Maningtre-Water, and Ipswich-Water". The writer Eric Blair chose the pen name under which he would later become famous, "George Orwell", because of his love for the river.'

      It's flowing 'into the North Sea at Felixstowe the UK's largest container port' emphasises water as trade, enrichment, exploration & experimentation enabler.

      Considering the ever alien demographics of Ipswich these days (as with the rest of the English island) the riverside dwelling "loud speaking" protestor, likely not a "local", could be forgiven for having trouble understanding commemorations to the dead, not withstanding the recontextualised use "Clarion" serves in offering to something else "other".

  26. On the subject of being "spaced-out" & "up to something", my weekend visit to London, which included a trip to the "London Mithraeum" at the "Bloomberg Space" (more on this at a later date), was spooked by the occasional apparition of the "Rocketman*" himself, "Elton John", covering one eye on the capital's rag "The Evening Standard" promoting their "Christmas" fund raising appeal in aid of those suffering the effects of hiv, hiv+, aids & related phenomena.

    Not all those who cum to be afflicted so are so because of "lifestyle choices", & not all are of the demographic that has a tendency to behave in such a way as to significantly increase their risk of being infected due to their "hedonistic imperative", but as with the subject of "Bohemian Rhapsody" the deletrious & life extinguishing effects & consequences of behaviours prone to resulting in hiv infection was little if not entirely absent from the appeal for assistance, sympathy & donation. No worries now though eh when we can all be "gene therapy" cured of/protected (at conception & before) from such infections, at the very least such a possibility will give anyone receiving a blood transfusion in flaming California grounds for something akin to optimism.

    "Rocketman" is the title of next year's to-be released biopic of "John", the rendering of the title features 2 pentagrams, in the "O" & the "A" no less & the trailer a levitating audience as "Rocketman" sings the title-song*.

    Regarding silver-screened delusions of space-fairing experimentation & would-be star-making grandeur the new poster for "Captain Fantastic", I mean "Captain Marvel", (on which "Brie Larson", still not smiling, looks more "Angelic" than ever) is a full on blue / orange/red assault on the eyes. An invite to one of "John's" bashes must surely be on her cards, if "Larson's" not already made her way to that level of initiation, but if this is the case, as with her Marvel-made role played, would she remember her pre-star-made life?

    (*Kate Bush coveed "Rocketman" on her "The Red Shoes" album, a direct reference to the film of the same name celebrating the trials, tribulations & celebrations of the performing of dance & the making of art. Prince was also featured on "TRS", the track "Why Should I Love You?", according to a commentor on the prince dot org site "The Purple One" thanks Bush on the liner notes to his "Diamonds & Pearls" album.)

    The V-2 rockets created in WWII reached a peak altitude of 88km. And they did this in the 1940s, years before NASA even existed as an organization. Many early NASA rockets flew much higher than 18km, all throughout the 1950s.

    Much later, the crew of Apollo 13 were at apocynthion 254 km from the lunar surface, on the far side of the Moon, and 400,171 km from Earth, the farthest any humans have been away from the planet.

    The troposphere has not been any sort of barrier to NASA rockets Chris.

    Rockets are not gnerally constructed out of steel! This is because mass is important to rocket performance, and lighter metals exist which are sufficiently strong for the task. Here is a detailed report on the materials used in the Saturn V rocket:
    https://www.scribd.com/document/17528520/NASA-Saturn-V-Rocket-Structural-Elements-1968

    Which reminds me to mention again to you that humans landed on the Moon, and returned to Earth. Here is a foto showing a Lunar Module descent stage that brought humans to the Moon within 300m of a man-made object that had landed on the Moon earlier. The foto was taken later by a third man-made objext that orbited the Moon. These are no small feats, since the average distance to the Moon is 384,400 km.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mare_Cognitum#/media/File%3AApollo_12-_Pinpoint_Landing_on_the_Ocean_of_Storms_(6962456793).jpg

    Let's do the math Chris:
    384,400 km > 18 km.

    So, NASA rockets which traveled to the Moon went an enormously farther distance than the highest average height of Earth's troposphere, and these rockets were made of lightweight metals like aluminum alloys.

But even if the public knew where to find the unspoiled marvel of nature, Mr Pollack said it is almost inaccessible ... “This cave is truly in the middle of nowhere. It’s out there in mountainous terrain, surrounded by glaciers and at the bottom of a 45-degree avalanche slope that rises 2,000 to 2,500ft [600-750m] above it, meaning you can’t go to it in winter.

  40. Some choice quotes from the ozy dot com article:

    'Human activity will almost certainly push global temperatures more than 2 degrees beyond pre-industrial levels. Even with aggressive action, some climate scientists are already suggesting it may be too late to reverse course.'

    'We need a backup plan like never before.'

    'It’s time for humanity to get serious about getting out of Dodge.'

    'Without AI, humanity’s colonization hopes do not pass “Go.”'

    'Sadly, the essential role that AI plays in our long-term survival is obfuscated by a roaring debate about automation killing jobs in the next five years.'

    'The Chinese government seems to understand this better than the rest of the world. Its AI plan is so bold, so ambitious and so well-funded that most experts acknowledge it has the potential to reshape the geopolitical landscape for generations. Perhaps they understand what many do not: AI won’t just save humanity in the future; it’s doing it now, and it has been doing it for a while.'

    'Last year, Google’s machine learning discovered a new planet using NASA’s archived Kepler data. Consider that we’ve been sitting on this data for years, but a neural network was able to discover a planet in mere minutes.'

    'Imagine that — AI had just massively reduced the time it takes to discover planets, to unravel the mysteries of the universe around us and light a path to a potential future home for our species...'

    'If you’re holding out hope that we can turn things around on Earth, the answer is pretty simple: We need more, and better, AI.'

    'If you’re less optimistic about Earth’s prospects, AI is already playing a role in microbiome research, which might hold answers to the most daunting block to long-term human space travel: human physiology ...it’s going to come down to AI to accelerate this research.'

    'It’s increasingly evident: Whether on Earth or in space, any solution to climate change, fight or flight, begins with AI.'

    & on that last quote in particular I bet that's what all the previous hosts said.

  41. Hey Chris, a little off topic but I wanted to know if the title of the blog has anything to do with Saturn?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I came across some research about Saturn being worshiped as the sun in ancient times. The story goes that the planets in our solar system only settled in their current positions recently and Saturn use to be closer to the earth. So all the sun worshipping religions from ancient times were actually were actually worshipping saturn. So I kinda thought the title of the blog was hinting at that.

      Delete
    2. Oh yeah, I get it. Some people believe that Saturn was *the* planetary body called "The Sun" at some point in the furthest flung human history when this belief is supposedly cited in ancient texts and writings. This apparent 'confusion' with our forebears assertions about what shines brightly in the sky and warms us seems kind of absurd on the surface, but then again who knows? Maybe there was something to it before the cosmos was turned on its ear when planets where destroyed and orbits were changed as a result? Something weird must have happened but possibly in a time we can't even imagine in a past we haven't considered as real.

      I've always wondered why there has been so much interest in things in the sky that we can barely see with the unaided eye aside from making up figures and attributing mythological images to the grouping of the little shiny dots. The only motivation that makes any sense to me is that something really bad came from that direction that traumatized our species so hard that it remains an obsession to this very day.

      So, for someone looking in on your blog for the first time, 'The Secret Sun' could, for them, be a reference to that ancient description of Saturn as our actual Sun.

      This is the secret of the Secret-Secret-Secret Sun.

The asteroid is almost perfectly cube-shaped and it stretches credulity that this object is natural. The craft is currently preparing to perform several touch-and-go maneuvers to sample the object's surface and return the material to Earth. Curiously, the OSIRIS-REx will wait until 4 July 2020, to begin sampling the surface of Bennu. Note the date and year."

  43. Speaking of NASA & space exploration, anyone been watching George RR Martin's "Nightflyers" on Syfy? I think the 3rd ep. just aired...Its an adaptation of a novella Martin wrote years ago. Science-Fiction/Horror story about exploration & alien contact with lots of transhumanist subtext:

    https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/29/18118319/nightflyers-george-r-r-martin-syfy-review-space-science-fiction-series

    SPOILERS:

    George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers asks whether humanity deserves to be saved

    "In the first episode of Syfy’s new series Nightflyers, Karl D’Branin (Eoin Macken), head of a scientific expedition meant to intercept an alien spaceship and establish first contact, talks with xenobiologist Rowan (Angus Sampson) about the mission. Karl views the incredible energy given off by the ship as mankind’s salvation, but Rowan expects the aliens haven’t responded to repeated messages from Earth because they don’t want to talk.

    “Any beings that intelligent would see the human race for what we are,” he says. “We’re a virus that has killed its host and is looking for a new host to infect… They’re probably going to exterminate us.”

    Science fiction typically portrays aliens either as evil forces looking to conquer Earth or as benevolent beings helping humans along the path to enlightenment. Nightflyers stands apart because it asks which form of extraterrestrial contact humanity deserves. Loosely based on George R.R. Martin’s 40-year-old novella of the same name, Nightflyers is set in 2093, as humanity looks to colonize the stars to escape their plague-ravaged home..."

      Do all Humans "deserve" to be wiped out? What of those who haven't, as yet, succumbed to the antiHuman/Life virus?

      This toxic notion of Humanity being unworthy of existing, so regularly celebrated by pop-culture (& not just by sci-fi dystopia, the likes of "Law & Order" for starters also act as ennervation) is a symptom of the antiHuman machination.

    2. Indeed. & you got right to the core of what I meant when I said "transhumanist subtext". I.e. humanity as it exists is treated like a problem to be managed. Or solved. Or eliminated. Or transcended. Usually with technological assistance.

      A very good argument against transhumanism from an economist:

      http://www.privacysurgeon.org/blog/incision/why-transhumanism-will-be-a-blight-on-humanity-and-why-it-must-be-opposed/

      "Being an economist, I am fortunately believing to some extent in the “invisible hand” of Adam Smith that he predicted to reign markets in the end. That is, I am pretty sure that all the exaggerated tech-promises of Transhumanists will be disillusioned at some point. There is no more security with a chip and no true protection against death or illness. Consumers will realize this and turn away. Already now, the number of people who Transhumanists contemptuously call “bio-conservatives” are raising; as does the number of people who bring some spirituality into their lives (i.e. through yoga, meditation, religion, etc.) or recognize for themselves what counts and what doesn’t. "

      &

      "Just consider this one example: Start-uppers and even IEEE Spectrum now promote a technology called “Transcranial Direct Stimulation” coming in the form of caps you can put on your head to stimulate your brain. They sell it as a way to get rid of depression; perhaps increase your mental capabilities. A typical transhumanistic technology. In truth, 39 scientists have been warning of this technology in the Annals of Neurology (Vol. 80, Issue 1, 2016) saying that there is little evidence on the effects of this technology that can be detrimental for users and lead to unpredictable emotional or intellectual outcomes. I think there is no doubt about who to believe is right here. The money-makers or the scientists? But not everyone is reading the Annals of Neurolgy and so many innocent and perhaps desperate people riding the wave of tech-craze will fall prey to false promises of this kind. It is the unpredictably large number of human victims of Transhumanism that I am concerned about; the vulnerability of our species that we should not play around with."
