Ancient Aliens series, 1 Through 19
Chaos convinces Self to finally purchase all volumes of Ancient Alien Astronauts and get it over with. Control insists the argument remains, why, while the remainder of we agree it’s not that important.
Control postulates; Why would Growth, Self conspire with Chaos to so blatantly disrespect, to the point of open display, all respectible expert science-minded debunkers of such pseudoscience nonsense to which we claim not to subscribe?
Control asks: Is Self unaware of the myriad of debunkers who shout to the rafters in unison It’s all fake! Stop looking! Don’t be fooled! A con, a hoax, we have done all the work for you, here, here and here?
To which Chaos replies, “Let’s get those too.”
Because we are atheist, because we have imagination and enjoy using her we thoroughly enjoy toying with impossible scenarios. We agree there is no harm to entertain notions of aliens in our past, present or future.
We collectively are not only Ancient Alien groupies, we entertain all sorts of quality-made, semi-lucid conspiracy theories as to Earths history…and more.
What is completely irrelevant to our enjoyment of the shows and other media is whether we collectively believe that AAA theories and conclusions are empirical based science, or built of pseudoscientific jumbo, or bold-face fabrication.
We simply do not care whether the tales are true or false.
Consider daily through virtually every media outlet, the sheer number of times our senses get assailed to suspend disbelief? Every all.
Chaos suggests that expert admonishments warning:
- Don’t look
- Don’t believe
- Be Afraid
are but reverse psychology tactics to set up proverbial Forbidden Fruits for simpler-minded shadows unaware of their role in social engineerings.
What is that thing that may not be obtained?
- The Apple?
- The Ring?
That Earthly “We” have our parasitical sites set upon invasion of space but in a kinder, gentler non-interferency, humanistic, infiltrating though respecting culture until they freely BORG themselves… sort of conquest.
We have no intention of traveling to far away places to personally investigate weird stuff, wild claims and empirically test conclusions.
The luxury of this ability relies upon unlimited funds or financial backers of which we have none, nor want. Therefor when we relax to watch a documentary film we appeciate those who offer the most joy of discovery to the viewer.
The AAA spin tall tales and at times, raise the thermometer of ludicrous reasoning past the bubbling point. We wonder of the elevators going to the top and we agree that is unkind.
The discussions invite the audience to join in a discovery of things and spin yarns of fantasy within our own minds.
They allow audience not only the discovery of an unusual and mysterious thing but welcome input, postulation, proposals from the audience all of which encourages imagination which allows the mind to think and reason for themselves whether or not the theories hold water.
Debunking is fine, we approve entirely, go team.
We wonder if such show and tell were solely left to debunkers. History written by debunkers. we’d be sitting attentively like dull little children watching endless NPR Climate Change style propaganda being lectured ad nauseum about carbon footprints and the selfishness of man all whilst just trying to sit back, enjoy the great scenery and learn something new, but always, first, last and inbetween we receive a heaping helping of activist Climate Change ideology to jog us out of our stupor.
Do these people realize how emotionally tiring it is to be lectured when what is needed or wanted is a bit of fun and relaxation. Yes, a semi-humerous attempt to approach this lack of personality, we were gifted the “Everybody Hates (someone)” a red-headed know it all who spent all his time popping into conversations and correcting everyone, and as it turns out, we watched and agreed. He was obnoxious and the show was an advertisment for a socialistic society, which is an anathama to our Self entirely.
The assumption of righteousness is simply not the assumption of possession of godly rights and in the realm of religious tyrants. Righteousness belongs in the province of Control.
“Righteousness is the quality or state of being morally correct and justifiable. It can be considered synonymous with “rightness” or being “upright” or to the light and visible. It can be found in Indian, Chinese and Abrahamic religions and traditions and many more religions throughout the world, as a theological concept.”
The vitriol of righteousness prevents debate and discussion. The Righteous have God, Bob, the Great Spirit, Justice firmly on their side, enough to never question their own motives.
When we fancy ourself unbelievers in such frivolity as superstition and gods…it seems odd we would be so enamored with this quagmire of fascinating pseudoscientific postulations.
Ah, but these Ancient Alien hucksters don’t discuss superstition as superstition per se but as seeds or kernels of science with ancient origins which have been misinterpreted through ignorance and presented as superstition and mumbo jumbo.
And yes, Control finds the cast of carriers amusing to hysterical from weird hair to face lift disaster and enjoys a myriod of opportunities to express superior intellectual satisfaction.
“And just where is Atlantis anyway? ” Asks Growth.
We don’t have to believe in Gods, spooks or actual space aliens to entertain strange notions. Strange notions find us easily enough.
Skeptic debunking lectures are unwelcome and unnecessary for we as we are adult and don’t need help however, we do appreciate the intent to save us, constantly, from self harm, but we’re OK. Keep the publications coming, however, as they are priceless for research when the self independently questions.
That Was Reason Number One
Reason number two. The airwaves are filled with devisive, hateful and downright creepy happenings. Politics has evolved into a den of thieves selling access and favors to the highest bidders, buddy to buddy, chum to chum, goon to goon as evidenced clearly and obvious to any thinking soul.
The balance of church and state seems oddly tilted a bit too far for comfort level of the shadows who pay attention.
There’s just something hinky about Socialist ideology, it seems a bit too tight-assery. Control with benevolence. Where have we heard that before? We are reminded of atrocities in the name of benevolence, executions for ones own good…
We suspect our supreme ruler might have been a socialist before clawing up to Ming Emperors of the Galaxy. As a youth he may have served popcorn in the movies for tips, he could have been an artist like Hitler and love kittens like Stalin, for all we know.
We weren’t surprised when the Party of Jefferson, thanks to a pseudoscience named Presentism, tossed the founding father out on his ear in 2004. Dropped him like a hot racist rock, what else could they do? We may not apply historic distinctions when Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are in sight. Erase all history. Wipe slate clean. Start a pandemic. Lock up dissenters, rule the world. It’s a brand new day. We review the platforms on occasion in the hopes sifting through the endless whining and blaming and rambling BS but the mind begins to wander after a mere minutes reading. Perhaps the intent. Baffle with BS.
Presentism is among the more obnoxious philosophies where belief that everyone except themselves were all literally born yesterday.
The taffy-pull of culture has stretched into Pie-In-The-Sky BullS, and grown large enough to dizzy the brain when we concentrate too long.
Double-speak rules the airwaves. Double speak rules the government. There is not a media outlet in existence we have come to deduce, that does not encourage shadows to come to their side, what ever that may be.
Self wishes to explain that while we have multitudes of reasons for our actions and inactions, these few we share. The rest we leave to Chaos and the Cleaner.
We are adult , human and female with children, grand children and so on.
Combined, we are at the basics:
We learned early to recognize the darkest shadows, intent upon satisfying a perversion toward vulnurability and inflicting harm whether mental or physical. Some shadows delude their selves into believing their truth is the truth for all. When such shadows get within grasp of power, we are firm believers in history repeating itself.
We believe our search of our ancestry has revealed much cause for our collective aversion to potential dangers. Whether our seemingly inate reactions be entirely a result of experience, environment or instinctive, hereditary is unknown and probably unknowable.
We all gain personality traits through genetic disposition and emulation of those people and stimulous closest and available. From then on personalities continuously change with every learning moment as we yin and yang through relationships.
Family, survival traits, how we relate to others, how we react to stimulous and events, pass along generation to generation as basic blue-prints in our DNA. What we choose to do with such traits is entirely up to the owner. As fate would have it, humans do not come with owners manuals or instructions to life.
The lessons of life are free to learn and experience fully and no shadow is wedded or doomed to repeat sins of the past.
But as Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would have it, all shadows are born unchangeable, traits ingrained and ready to repeat offend what ever offense is the offense de Jour.
Quite the handy tool for those who live to catagorize.
Yes, catagorized. Back to the Commuist credo. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”
Or as Emperor Ming likes to put it, “They’ll be satisfied with less.”
What Does This Have To Do With Ancient Alien Astronauts?
Sanity amid chaos and unreason. Recess for Chaos and Cleaner to go outside to play while the grownups do the heavy stuff. File, do dishes, write, paint read with no interruptions.
And now insert the Cretaceous One, over whom we have no control, to remind the self that children may not be safe ‘out there’.
Such is the logic of the primitive brain.
Protect, survival of the species.
A simple emotion, protect children, vulnerable shadows, a call to action.
We, however are of the knowledge that “studies,” have shown when commercials feature giants selling corn and peas to happy peasants below, he never takes a step.
Originally, the giant walked proudly across the fields with tiny peasants to cheer him on.
Then came the angry phone calls and letters over fears the cartoon giant would step on and crush the cartoon little people.
We recognize not all shadows listen to the Cretatious One.
She is more of a kick in the pants than a voice to ignore, not recognize or disregard.
Easily triggered, the urge to act. The very concept of anger management makes the Cretatious One angrier.
Shadows may forget or choose not to unsuspend disbelief due to family or team loyalty, religion, community at their peril.
We agree when Ms C acts upon baseless, superstition the result might become ludicrous.
We acknowledge her existence to reassure the children will be fine, won’t get lost, because we are not ourselves real.
We remain astounded.
Chaos stumbled upon the transendentalist poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, to insis we share
“What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think…. It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”
Emerson explained that to try to “conform to societal expectations wastes one’s energy and genius because “it scatters your force.”
We feel a bit vindicated.
