An Alternative To Aliens, Tricksters, and Paranormal Individuation

Exif_JPEG_422That which follows this preamble is rewritten from a private email. I think it’s too good to let die there, although still just an idea. Is it more than that? Who knows. I doubt it. The point is that if you apply your noggin to the issues at hand instead of retreading the same old stuff, you can see that there are more viable possibilities and therefore we really haven’t identified the unidentified objects/intelligence(s) or solved the unsolved mysteries no matter how right our “answers” feel.

The email dealt with someone’s belief that “the grays” are aliens and those aliens are cybernetic  organisms. This triggered the lightbulb because once again, with the term cybernetic organisms, we see an appeal to our modern sensibilities. These sensibilities are a mixture of where our science stands now + where we can envision it taking us in the immediate future.

Ever notice our proclivity to take this equation and apply it to the “alien” problem as a eureka moment? Coming out of our mouths it sounds like this: “Eureka! I’ve got it! The aliens are far in advance of us by thousands or perhaps millions of years! And by that I mean kinda how we see ourselves now mixed with futurist projections of where we’ll be in the next hundred years. That’s GOT to be it!”

No-no, you read that right. We sound like egomaniacal nut jobs. Gosh, why don’t they just land already?

So, that’s the setup that brought me to a new all-encompassing theory of the paranormal. Please… TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDS. Freeform pondering is much better for you than reading whatever UFO book you’ve got in your hand. (Daddy? What’s a book?)

I digress….

Might they be staying a step ahead of our ability to convert imagination into reality to either guide us in a certain direction (which has been said before) — or stroking our egos so that we remain interested in them?

And what if all of the BLAAAAH! in-your-face-from-a-thousand-angles paranormal stuff isn’t so much different strokes to appeal to different folks as it is the tendrils that comprise this intelligence, like an octopus? Ghosts, bigfoot, aliens, faeries, demons, and so on… what if they are all expressions of the same thing not as facades but as actual, unalterable components of it? What if they appear on our side of the veil as multiple bodies, multiple intelligences–but that’s only because we can’t see what the tendrils are connected to? But the tendrils are real, you see? Not illusions. It must manifest here in these ways because, perhaps, that is how this reality shapes it, gives it form.

If Earth is Mother then all life on her could be seen as an extension of her, right? You wouldn’t call mammals, animals, insects, plants, and so forth trickster elements of this intelligence, would you? They simply are extensions of an intelligent Earth that exhibit their own sense of aliveness. Perhaps this enigma is a parallel world smearing into ours or perhaps it is a free-floating intelligence living in an etheric realm like a dream. Or something else entirely–not the point. The point is, through this analogy you can hopefully see what I’m driving at.

So then, if you study the enigma from its ufological perspective, it has to seem just attainable enough to keep you hooked. Hence, it gives humanity something we can imagine ourselves doing within a lifetime or two… yet somehow we still claim the aliens are thousands/millions of years in advance of us. Perhaps that projection of their smarts is a way for us to feel smart because in actuality, what they are presenting is old technology, by our standards, and technology just out of reach but almost here. And if you become an “abductee” you will have other psychic/ghost/crypto-creature phenomena in your life.

If you study it from, say, the ghost angle, it’s a similar unfolding, except there’s no need to think futuristically in the same way as UFOs. You build a gadget and the enigma responds to that gadget. Now you think you’re on to something. And the deeper you go the more liable you are to experience UFO/alien/psychic/crypto-whatever phenomena.

If the point of what we call “the facades” of the experience are to rope you in based on your interest or cultural filter, then there’s really no need to scare you with this other stuff you’re not interested in. You could argue that it’s to broaden your mind to other possibilities but I think there are better ways to do that than converting wonder and excitement about something you’re interested in to confusion and fear darting at you from all crazy angles. In other words, there is no reason for an abductee to experience ghosts or people living in a haunted house to experience UFOs and aliens unless they are aspects of one entity being observed, same as anything else we look at for too long.

And so, again, is it possible that these “facades” ARE the real faces of a singular intelligence that has little choice but expose you to all of its sides because you, the experiencer, the truth-seeker, want to know and engage all of it?

At least you think you do. Until this happens.

Circling back, perhaps what the enigma is ultimately guiding us to is contact on an equal basis. Now imagine what it really takes to get there. More than an open mind and a keen intellect, I suspect. More, even, than a standardized ethical code. Star Trek, this is not. And if there’s more to the Mother Earth analogy than I’m letting on… we’ve got some rearranging to do if we are to discover what a sane, wholly-realized human looks like. And that step must happen first.

Just a thought.

  1. Intriguing thoughts about a complex phenomenon. It’s a helpful analogy–the octopus with all its tendrils. I’d add to those thoughts the idea of intermittent reinforcement being the best way to keep people hooked. The phenomenon pops up when it feels like it, not on any regular kind of schedule, which would soon get boring. This octopus keeps you guessing about where it will appear, when it will appear again–and, as you say, in what form it will appear. Are you hooked, waiting breathlessly yet?

  2. hmm… like a seedling bursting through the earth, consciousness (the all, the universe) pushes / prods / unfolds / imagines / becomes. Each one of us is a tiny node on the fractal blossom, part of the whole, which in turn IS the part. They are indistinguishable yet infinitely malleable and shape-shiftable – each can wrap itself into a unique “part” tailored to its (host) human. This, in order that the whole can be realized. Basically: I see “ghost” because it is what I need for my “node” (me) to realize itself as more than a part, as a whole. Wish I could better express this in words.

  3. Well, I don’t know where else to put this, and I noticed some similarities in there:
    “And what if all of the BLAAAAH! in-your-face-from-a-thousand-angles paranormal stuff isn’t so much different strokes to appeal to different folks as it is the tendrils that comprise this intelligence, like an octopus? Ghosts, bigfoot, aliens, faeries, demons, and so on… what if they are all expressions of the same thing not as facades but as actual, unalterable components of it? What if they appear on our side of the veil as multiple bodies, multiple intelligences–but that’s only because we can’t see what the tendrils are connected to?”

    I’ve had a weird epiphany about all of this. It stems originally from an experience I had a couple years back. Really the last in your face interaction I had with the ‘other’. I tried for a while to understand what the hell was communicated to me in that experience, aside from the initial obvious things. That ‘it’ doesn’t follow any rules. At all, basically.

    But there was also the overwhelming sense of them waving a giant clue in my face and being very annoyed that I just didn’t immediately get who or what ‘they’ were. Apparently annoyed enough to just close the door in my face and leave me with my confusion.

    Well, I get it now. I don’t know if I can explain it, but I get it. It hinges on a flaw in how we perceive everything. The things that are right in front of your nose are the hardest to see. But that’s just a bad analogy. This is worse, since it encompasses our entire sense of self and ‘reality’.

    We see and define nearly everything in terms of dichotomies. From really simple ones like hot and cold, to more esoteric things like matter/antimatter or matter and energy. The ‘phenomena’, or ‘the other’, is, in one sense, just another dichotomy that is at once both a psychological construct and in a lesser understood way, a reality. Except it is not ‘just’ another dichotomy. It is THE dichotomy. The apparent distinction being self and other. Self doesn’t just mean an individual self in this context, however. Not at all. It is everything that defines your own perception of reality at any given time. Other is everything beyond that. Which is a lot of stuff.

    So, the ‘paranormal’, the ‘other’ or ‘alien’ as everyone has different words for it; is literally our collective perceptive shadow. That sounds stupid and obvious on the face of it, I know. But saying that, and actually *getting* it, seem to be two totally different things. Which I guess is why this has just been rolling around in my head for two years. Just sounds like ‘half dozen of one, six of the other’, right? Nope.

    The reason the phenomena is a chameleon, follows no discern-able rules, and messes with our perception of reality is because it is all of those things at any given time. It is literally the entire gap between what we are at this moment, what we perceive, and *the rest of reality outside that*.

    The reason we can’t pin down what this is, is because it is not just ‘right under your nose’, it’s more basic than that. It’s right inside your very mind at all times. An actual metaphysical shadow cast just by our existing and perceiving. This is also the reason it almost always appears in a way that is ‘just a few steps beyond us’, all throughout history. It changed because we changed and grew. I say ‘gap’ or ‘shadow’, but really this is something that is endless. Infinite. Until no part of existence escapes our sight. Aside from your ‘oneness’, I guess, Jeremy.

    I don’t know. Usually with things like this I just second guess myself and some part of it comes up short or just plain wrong. I don’t like it when I feel like I’m as sure of something as I feel about this. Makes me uneasy. So please, help me poke some holes, here?

    • “So, the ‘paranormal’, the ‘other’ or ‘alien’ as everyone has different words for it; is literally our collective perceptive shadow.”

      Bam. Read up people:

      “In fact very likely the nature of the garbage as ‘empty’ thought form complexes is an extremely strong parallel to viruses (which on their own are non-living but hijack the ‘machinery’ of living cells in order to replicate, and so are in many – but not quite all – ways operating like living organisms), in that they cannot exist as any sort of meaningful or thriving presence except through their manifestation in human minds. Indeed, it appears clear to me that in order to manifest to a person as any sort of entity or entities, the garbage has to hijack a part of that person’s awareness and read from that person’s own databases (memories, including also much data not available to the ordinary, conscious mind) in order to create impressions of particular entities or indeed supposed higher beings. So, just like viruses, the garbage gets the person to unawarely do its dirty work, and it controls the person into creating his own tormentors / nemesis.”

      “As I understand it, the astral sub-reality encompasses what various healing and psychological traditions have called the common unconscious or the collective human consciousness or similar terms. The various so-called archetypes contained therein are simply particular ‘master categories’ of human illusion that have gained especial strength there as the garbage used them over and over for the purpose of manipulating and controlling people, incidentally causing those people themselves to create their own illusory realities incorporating those archetypes and so still further strengthening the ‘master copies’.”
