You’ve heard me talk a lot about Trickster theory over the years, parroting George Hansen and Jacques Vallee. Certainly I can’t ignore the connection between the appearance of high strangeness and anti-structural moments in one’s life. For example, the night I lost my virginity I breathed a sigh of relief that I wasn’t abducted. My unrelenting fear since high school had been that being with me meant inheriting this abduction situation. But it didn’t happen and so I let it go. Ironically, the next night I had the most in-your-face encounter of my life.
Does it get more anti-structural–that is to say, anti-my-sense-of-normalcy–than having sex for the first time while losing a long-held, deeply obsessive fear? Letting go physically and letting go mentally? And let’s add to that the power of sexual energy itself as a possible factor in high strangeness events. It certainly plays a role in many mystical and shamanic practices.
We have four options for modus operandi (outside of psychological delusion) to look at here: an intelligence that’s waiting for just the right moment to pull an ironic prank; a confluence of circumstances that open one to a larger perception of what’s around them; a confluence of circumstances that open one to having something from outside normal awareness enter their lives; and coincidence.
Statistics rule out coincidence. One down. What can we do with the other three options?
We can talk to each other. That’s it. So I’m asking any reader who is an experiencer of high strangeness that seems to involve another thoughtful, aware intelligence of any kind… or… any reader who has studied that type of literature and knows offhand of a case…. Has the intelligence ever indicated how or why it came to you at such an abnormal time in your life? Or has it ever indicated that it was playing a morbid joke?
In essence, have you any indication at all from direct experience or case study that the intelligence itself is aware of the anti-structure principal?
That night I cited above, I asked myself, ‘Why am I seeing this?’ And a disembodied female voice answered, “Because you’ve always wanted to remember an abduction.”
There’s no inkling of the poor timing. Anyone else? Please write to me in the comments or through the email form.
