  PERSONAL: Yes, with the right way the wrong thing can be stated.
Now, I am TOTALLY CONVINCED that the UFO Phenomenon is REAL.

- Yes, I totally agree with this, as well as visitation from what you call "non human entities" as well as some interdimensional forms that appear humanoid.


I am also totally convinced that never any extraterrestrial culture or race, payed us a visit.
- I disagree in part with this, but only in part. I think a vast number of these so called aliens are actually something from earth or the immediate surrounding space (atmosphere) , possibly energy forms, thought forms, or mind projections. However I do believe ET/angelic beings have visited us, at least in the past, and perhaps those who are their descendants have the ability to project the UFO phenomenon into our present world.

I also believe in the let us say, 5th Hypothesis: The whole UFO=EXTRATERRESTRAL myth is employed, consciously or not, to cover the TRUTH about UFO Phenomenon.

- To a point yes. There could be numerous factors at work here.

The truth is of such an enormity that probably would destroy us in seconds or WORST. Make us all Insane.
- Possible, but all should not be included. I think a lot is hidden because MOST people would have a big problem with it. There are religious, educational, and governmental issues. But some people would accept it and not go insane, with maybe the exception of a total end of the world scenario where the entire planet experiences extinction with no way out. Ok, THEN people might go insane, but still not everyone.

There is however an attitude against insanity. Is the State of Total Awareness, Complete  Mindfulness.
- True
Also, to believe that everything is for our MINDS, a complex system of INTER-TEXTUALITY.
Let's call this the SEMIOTIC Attitude.

Everything is a TEXT about a TEXT. There is no Original Text.

I've been reading this mans material and it's very interesting. I decided to post this particular article and underlined some important parts relevant to this groups own studies. Of course given this mans background in law enforcement and the military, he would most likely be considered a Cabal by some people in the Exo field.

http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/view/156176

"People who wonder about or even actively research the topics of UFOs and visitors from elsewhere sometimes begin with certain assumptions that may only be partially correct.

We might assume that if we are being visited, these intelligent beings are all biological life forms, though they might be quite different from humans.


We could also conclude that they are from another planet and they travel here aboard advanced spacecraft, possibly warping or surfing space-time in some way.


However, there are also theories and indications that, although those basic concepts might generally be accurate in some cases, there could be other developments going on as well.


For example, it might be possible that there are several kinds of intelligent visitors on Earth. Some researchers also suggest that certain unconventional beings might not be visitors at all, but somehow native to our planet, though they reside in hidden dimensions or operate in mysterious ways.


And even those who do travel here from a home world of some kind might also be able to visit us by slipping in and out of these mysterious dimensions without the need for sophisticated spacecraft.


In addition, although many might be biological entities or have a biological component, some anomalous beings might be some kind of energy operating outside of what we think of as normal biological life.


MYSTERIES WITHIN MYSTERIES


The other important questions regarding either extraterrestrial visitors from another planet or other mysterious beings of various kinds involve their possible motives and objectives. Are they friendly, hostile or somewhere in between? If there is some hidden agenda, what is it?


Are they straightforward and honest or deceptive? And if there deception – why? Is it simply "operational security (OPSEC)" of the kind we use ourselves in certain activities to help ensure success? If so, this could work to our benefit if their mission is to help us.


Some people believe in angels and the activities of good entities who watch over us and help humankind in many ways. These types of beings, if they truly exist, are said to operate in discreet, unseen and secret ways, much like some sort of intelligence agents.


Could other kinds of intelligent beings, including extraterrestrial and/or extra-dimensional ones, also work in similar secretive and covert ways?


A related consideration is that other intelligent beings, possibly of many kinds, could be trying to educate us and affect our thinking. They might be waiting for, or even actively assisting humanity in the development of a more advanced consciousness within us.


People try to persuade and influence each other all the time through many kinds of "perception management." These can be applied constructively to help a target population or damaging if used toward harmful outcomes.


Some researchers indicate that the field of study involving UFOs, extraterrestrials and other mysterious kinds of phenomena are full of deception and perception management cover stories, both by the unusual phenomena themselves and by some of the humans involved in trying to deal with them.


PREPAREDNESS AND DISCLOSURE
When we discuss the idea of "disclosure" of government files about UFOs and visitors from the stars or other dimensions, we might also want to recognize the limitations of what this alleged government-held information might tell us.


There certainly seem to be strong indications that the U.S. and other governments and organizations have been looking into these kinds of anomalous phenomena for quite a while, at least since the mid-1940s. There has probably been useful information obtained as well as attempts to interpret what it all means.


Puzzle pieces involving possible different technologies and various types of beings could be part of these scenarios. And, it is also possible that we have not yet put all the puzzle pieces together. There still may be several unknowns in play.


A major consideration in greater understanding about these possibilities seems to be the mental, emotional and even spiritual preparedness of humans about these mysteries.


And, it may not be so simple as friendly visitors from another planet who want to help us and show us their advanced technologies, though those could be aspects of the situation.


This is why some people advocate a safe and discreet orientation and acclimation process to educate Americans and people worldwide about the nature of the possible elements involved.


It might not be simply that "we are not alone." The very nature of Nature and the dynamics of the Universe or multi-verse around us and within us might be different than what we learned in school.

    The Extraterrestrial Hypothesis and Galactic Diplomacy.

    The Exopolitical authorities announce their Galactic Diplomacy Classes, and this invite us to analyze some amazing contradictions.

    First of all, the professors Manuel Lamiroy, Lic. Juris. and Paola Harris, M.Ed. will be teaching how to practice diplomacy...with an hypothesis..!
    For example they will say this:
    " IF the extraterrestrial hypothesis is true, THEN we must practice the following Diplomatic rules with the perhaps existent extraterrestrials."
    Now, if this works, something is wrong with us, humans.
    Please, also consider this.
    Manuel Lamiroy, Lic. Juris. and Paola Harris, M.Ed. will be teaching extraterrestrial diplomacy, and people who pays for their teachings, will want to know what are the EXPERIENCE of Manuel and Paola in extraterrestrial diplomacy. The answer to this is easy. The experience of Paola and Manuel is inexistent, since the extraterrestrials are just an hypothesis..!

    Now people, please, tell me what's going on here...this people is crazy or what? Honestly, this is not serious at all. Will so0meone pay for these hypothetical teachings?

    Open Letter to Doctor Richard Boylan.

    Dear Doctor Boylan.
    You cannot imagine how much we enjoy your posts and ideas.
    Believe us, we take our time to read you, and admire your "charisma” and Wisdom.
    Of course we also know that only a limited number of true believers follow your teachings.
    Unfortunately, most of them have not enough intelligence to understand the substance of your Ideas concerning the Source, the Altimarians, the Star-nations and now, the subterranean helpers and a curious crystalline entity whose existence you revealed to the World.
    Gaia is in good, strong, protective hands.
    Particularly we admire your courage. Yes, doctor, because courage is needed to teach all this to kids.
    Of course those kids are star/seeds, right Doctor?
    We hope that in the school, teachers and other “common” kids will recognize this privilege.
    Please Doctor, believe us. We follow your steps and are familiarized with your background.
    However, we are not the only ones. There are others also interested in your new cult.
    But please, don’t worry about your critics. These ignore how Honest, Decent and Sincere you are.
    Have a great day and a better night, Richard.
    Give our regards to Fran, Wendy and Asheoma.

    WHY THEY ARE NEVER IN THE STAGE.

    What must be understood is that Serious Ufology INCLUDES the investigation of the impact of this mystery in sociopaths, charlatans, con-men, hoaxers
    Also, analyze the new gullibility. People who believes just ANYTHING without reserves.
    This kind of phenomenons are, in my view, extremely dangerous, so WE, RATIONAL PEOPLE, must push people into THINKING, into REASON.
    Again, the UFO phenomenon is, until now, incomprehensible, and the Extraterrestrial hypothesis is , for me, the less rational of all.
    What for me is obvious is that the ufonauts BEHAVE as Time Travelers would do. They do their thing from a different space-time continuum, perhaps.
    THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NEVER IN THE STAGE. They cannot be there, they cannot risk "killing their grandpa(paradox)"
    Please, come to work on all this...
    Love you people.

    Truth will make us FREE.

    The Impossible Conspiracy.

    Conspiracy is a curious word. It comes from " conspirare" which means breathing together.
    So, let's consider for a moment that the idea of Extraterrestrials "visiting" our planet is true.
    However, if this is so, and if the government is in contact with the Aliens, then both, the authorities and the ETs are co-conspirators. Both are involved in a huge conspiracy.
    Consequently, to point the Government as responsible for the so called Cover-up is limited to one of the parts. Obviously both, ETs and Gov. are keeping the Cover Up, the secret of the extraterrestrial presence on our Earth.
    If this is so, the aliens conspire against Humanity. They are allied with the government. They are hostile to us, the people.
    Gov and Aliens breath together. Conspire against us.
    Obviously, the disclosure would be the recognition of the Aliens-Government conspiracy.
    The whole thing is contradictory, illogical and irrational.
    More, it would be impossible to keep such Cover-Up.
    The conclusion is that Extraterrestrial massive presence implies contact, open contact. Since this open contact doesn't exist, there are no Extraterrestrials here.
    The UFO phenomenon however is with us from the beginning of times, but the ET hypothesis doesn't solve the enigma.
    From our perspective, after decades of research, the Time-travelers hypothesis is more rational and explains the lack of contact and the furtiveness of the Entities behind the phenomenon. Time-travelers cannot and will not destroy time continuum.
    The ufonauts apparently work in a different space-time dimension, but again, if this is so, we cannot understand how they do it.
    So, the whole phenomenon remains a mystery. An unsolved mystery.

    Cults: Mind Control and Brainwashing



    ---------- Forwarded message ----------
    From: <destructive.cults.watch@nyms.net>
    Date: Thu, May 13, 2010 at 6:14 PM
    Subject: Cults: Mind Control and Brainwashing
    To: fso2604@gmail.com


    SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY AND GROUP DYNAMICS

    Studies have shown that today's cults use a stronger form of control than those of 50 years ago. The advent of new psychological experiments in the 60's and 70's have produced the modern methods of mind control which are far more sophisticated than the BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION TECHNIQUES and THOUGHT REFORM developed by the Chinese. To understand mind control you need a basic understanding of BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION TECHNIQUES.

    What is "behaviour modification."

    Simply described, it is "reward or punishment for actions" association. It was used on you as a child whenever you were being commended or otherwise for your behaviour.

    Taking away a privilege is usually a sure-fire method to persuading a child to change its behaviour when that child is old enough to under-stand the process. Praising a child for doing good is another method of changing behaviour, especially in the child who is anxious toplease. The rod of education applied to the seat of learning is another method of bringing about a desired behaviour change.

    When behaviour modification techniques such as these are applied in a loving, caring and consistent way, the child changes their behaviour without holding feelings of resentment. However, if these techniques are perverted in any way, damage is done to the child's psyche, their emotions. e.g.. the abused child syndrome. Cults use a sophisticated and perverted form of behaviour modification which damages an individuals emotions.

    COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

    Leon Festinger is a psychologist who studied groups that predicted the end of the world. He found that most members became stronger than ever when the prophecy failed. His investigation revealed that members had to find a way to cope psychologically with the failure. They needed to maintain order and meaning in their life. They needed to think they were acting according to their self-image and values.

    Festinger described this contradiction which they had to overcome as what has become known as the "COGNITIVE DISSONANCE THEORY." The three components he described are:

    - "CONTROL OF BEHAVIOUR"
    - "CONTROL OF THOUGHTS"
    - "CONTROL OF EMOTIONS"

    Each component has a powerful effect on the other two: CHANGE ONE AND THE OTHERS WILL TEND TO FOLLOW. When all three change the individual undergoes a complete change. Festinger summarised the basic principle:

       "If you change a person's behaviour, his thoughts and feelings will change to minimise the dissonance."

    When there is a conflict between thoughts, feelings or behaviour, then those in conflict will change to minimise the contradiction. This is because a person can only tolerate a certain amount of discrepancy between these components which make up his identity. In cults this dissonance is created to exploit and control them.

    Steven Hassan, author of Combating Cult Mind Control, added a fourth component to Festinger's:

    - "CONTROL OF INFORMATION"

    By controlling the information one receives you can control and restrict the individual's ability to think for himself. You limit what he is able to think about.

    BEHAVIOUR CONTROL - The control of an individual's physical reality.

    This can include control of where he lives, what he eats, his clothing, sleep, job, rituals etc. This is why most cults have a stringent schedule for members. There is always something to do in destructive cults. Each cult has its own distinctive set of behaviours that bind it together. This control is so powerful that the cult member will actually participate in their own punishment and come to believe he actually deserves it!

    No one can command a person's thoughts but IF YOU CAN CONTROL BEHAVIOUR THEN HEARTS AND MINDS WILL FOLLOW.

    THOUGHT CONTROL - The control of an individual's thought processes.

    The indoctrination of members so thoroughly that they will manipulate their own thought processes. The ideology is internalised as "the truth". Incoming information is filtered through the beliefs which also regulates how this information is thought about.

    The cult has it's own language which further regulates how a person thinks. This puts a great barrier between cult members and outsiders.

    Another form of control is "thought stopping" techniques. This can take many forms: chanting, meditating, singing, humming, tongues (some even pay money to learn it), concentrated praying, etc. The use of these techniques short-circuits the persons' ability to test reality. The person can only think positive thoughts about the group. If there is a problem the member assumes responsibility and works harder.

    EMOTIONAL CONTROL - The control of the individuals emotional life.

    This manipulates a person's range of feelings. Guilt and fear are used to keep control. Cult members cannot see the control by guilt and like other abuse victims are conditioned to blame themselves when things are wrong, even grateful when a leader points our their transgressions.

    Fear is used to manipulate two ways. The first is to create an outside enemy (we vs them) who is persecuting you. The second is the fear of punishment by the leaders if you are not "good enough." Being "good enough" is following the ideology perfectly. The most powerful emotional control is phobia indoctrination. This can give the person a panic reaction at the very thought of leaving the group. It is almost impossible to conceive that there is any life outside the group.

    There is no physical gun held to their heads but the psychological gun is just as if not more powerful.

    INFORMATION CONTROL - The control of the individuals information sources.

    Deny a person the information needed to make a sound judgment and he will be incapable of doing so. People are trapped in cults because they are denied both the access to the critical information they need to assess their situation. The psychological chains on their minds are just as powerful as if they were locked away physically from society. So strong is this psychological process they also lack the properly functioning internal mechanism to process any critical information placed in front of them.

    THE EIGHT MARKS OF MIND CONTROL
    TOTALISM - ALL OR NOTHING

    Mind Control is a PROCESS of eradicating former beliefs and instituting new beliefs in their place through the use of COERCIVE persuasion. It is a PROCESS which is designed to break a person's independence and individuality and replace it with the ideology clone. The Chinese called this process "thought reform" which was poorlytranslated into English as "brain-washing".

    BRAIN-WASHING

    Brain-washing is now considered to be a different process to thought reform or mind control. In brain-washing the victim knows who is the enemy. An example is American Patty Hearst who was kidnapped by a terrorist group. Through physical abuse she finally became a member of the group and took part in terrorist activities and bank robberies.

    THOUGHT CONTROL

    Thought control is more subtle. The victim doesn't know who is the enemy because the enemy seems like their best friend who only has their best interests at heart.

    Cults practice a more refined form of thought control than that used by the Chinese. Leading psychologist, Dr Margaret Singer, said cults do it better than the Chinese because it is easier to get people to do what you want through manipulating them with guilt and anxiety.

    During this process the prospective recruit is re-educated and will abandon the precepts he has learnt from life for the "truth" or "enlightenment" offered by the group. In some cults this is done over a long period of time; Other cults can bring about this change within 48 hours. Whichever way the process takes place the results are the same. The individual has undergone a total change in personality and is often unrecognisable by their family.

    The process of thought control has been documented by Robert J Lifton who researched what happened to the American prisoners of the Communist Chinese. He labelled the steps which have become the standard by which to judge whether a group is using "brain-washing" or "thought reform" on it's recruits.

    Robert J Lifton's research showed that -

       "These criteria consist of eight psychological themes which are predominant within the social field of the thought reform milieu. Each has a totalistic quality; each depends upon an equally absolute philosophical assumption; and each mobilises certain individual emotional tendencies, mostly of a polarising nature.

       Psychological theme, philosophical rationale, and polarised individual tendencies are interdependent; they require, rather than directly cause, each other. In combination they create an atmosphere which may temporarily energise or exhilarate, but which at the same time poses the gravest of human threats." (Thought Reform & the Psychology of Totalism p 420)

    The eight marks noted by Lifton are:

       * 1. MILIEU CONTROL - Control of the Environment and Communication

         The control of human communication is the most basic feature of the thought reform environment. This is the control of what the individual sees, hears, reads, writes, experiences and expresses. It goes even further than that, and controls the individuals communication with himself - his own thoughts.

         Everything other than their beliefs is excluded. The organisation appears to be omniscient. They seem to know everything that is going on. Reality is their exclusive possession. In this environment the individual is deprived of the combination of external information and internal reflection required to test reality and to maintain a measure of identity separate from his environment.

         The individual can feel victimised by his controllers and feel the hostility of suffocation - the resentful awareness that his striving toward new information, independent judgment and self-expression are being thwarted.

         EXAMPLE - Jehovah's Witnesses are a classical example of a closed community living within and mixing with the wider community. Because they are so well known we have used them as an example.

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - You could "go beyond the 'truth' - beyond what they taught. This showed you were thinking for yourself and put yourself above leadership. Those moving ahead of the Organisation are counselled
             o - No gatherings other than those allowed or organised by organisation (1982).
             o - Not making comments from your own thoughts at the meetings. Only comments from the study articles are permitted. No independent thinking is permitted.
             o - The organization always seemed to know what was going on in your congregation and article appeared in Watchtower publications just at the right time ("food at the proper time"). This was done through Circuit Servants reports to Headquarters.
             o - Use of 'publisher record cards' etc. to monitor activities of members. Watchtower is aware of trends etc. by strict reporting and control of individual Witnesses activities.
             o - Report on fellow brothers & sisters (cannot get away from organisation)
             o - Monitoring or observation of disfellowshipped or marked people.
             o - Non Witnesses are viewed as 'bad association'
             o - Worldly education discouraged - better to go door-to-door
             o - Employment that takes up time which should be devoted to Watchtower activities is also discouraged.
             o - Should be 'buying out the opportune time' in 'theocratic activities'.
             o - Taught to indoctrinate self!
             o - 'Shepherding' of those who fall behind.

       * 2. MYSTICAL MANIPULATION - The Mystique of the Organisation

         This seeks to provoke specific patterns of behaviour and emotion in such a way that these will appear to have arisen spontaneously from within the environment. For the manipulated person this assumes a near-mystical quality. This is not just a power trip by the manipulators. They have a sense of "higher purpose" and see themselves as being the "keepers of the truth." By becoming the instruments of their own mystique, they create a mystical aura around the manipulating institution - the Party, the Government, the Organisation, etc. They are the chosen agents to carry out this mystical imperative.

         The pursuit of this mystical imperative supersedes all considerations of decency of immediate human welfare. The end justifies the means. You can lie, deceive or whatever to those outside the organization. Association with the "outside" is only to benefit their own cause in some way.

         Some cults like Moonies and Hare Krishna's call their deception "heavenly deception" or "transcendental trickery".

         Members believe in the ideology to such a degree that they rationalize these deceptions. Members are kept in a frenzy of cult related activities. There is little time or energy to think about their lifestyle.

         "The psychology of the pawn" - This person feels unable to escape from forces he sees more powerful than himself. His way of dealing with this is to adapt to them. He learns how to anticipate problems with the organisation and to manipulate events to avoid incriminating himself.

         This is the person who has been in the organisation long enough, knows something is wrong, is on the verge of leaving then suddenly becomes very loyal. They sell out to the organisation and will turn in friends who may have confided in them.

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - "Theocratic strategy" - If you don't have a right to know the truth it is OK to lie to you. (See "Insight" under 'Lie')
             o - Avoid telling prospects- No blood, holidays, family, friends, etc
             o - Bring someone new each time they call so prospect gets to know the people at the Kingdom Hall when they attend. (Planned spontaneity)
             o - The ideology supersedes the welfare of the individual. They are not involved in charities outside the group [or in the group].
             o - Not helping fellow memmbers to the detriment of promoting the ideology. This is more important than helping the sick & elderly.
             o - Prayers are general - for the organisation not the needs of the individual. See God as not interested in you as a person.
             o - Blessed only for effort in promoting the Kingdom.
             o - Ability of organisation to accomplish the 'preaching work' seen as evidence of Jehovah's blessing, direction and angelic help
             o - Jehovah 'sifts out' those not truly 'in the truth', those without 'the right heart condition' which is why people leave or must be disfellowshipped. No one leaves legitimately.

       * 3. DEMAND FOR PURITY - Everything is black & white

         Pure and impure is defined by the ideology of the organization. Only those ideas, feelings and actions consistent with the ideology and policy are good. The individual conscience is not reliable. The philosophical assumption is that absolute purity is attainable and that anything done in the name of this purity is moral.

         By defining and manipulating the criteria of purity and conducting an all-out war on impurity (dissension especially) the organisation creates a narrow world of guilt and shame. This is perpetuated by an ethos of continuous reform, the demand that one strive permanently and painfully for something which not only does not exist but is alien to the human condition.

         Under these conditions the individual expects humiliation, ostracism and punishment because of his inability to live up to the criteria and lives in a constant state of guilt and shame. Since the organisation is the ultimate judge of good and evil, this guilt and shame is used to manipulate and control members. The organization becomes an authority without limit in the eyes of members and their power is nowhere more evident that in their capacity to "forgive".

         All impurities are seen to originate from "outside" (the world). Therefore, one of the best ways to relieve himself of the burden of guilt is to denounce these with great hostility. The more guilty he feels, the greater his hatred, the more hostile is his denouncement.

         Organizationally this eventually leads to purges of heretics, mass hatred and religious holy wars. The group will point to the mistakes of all other belief systems while promoting their own purity. This gives the impression that their organisation is perfect, clean and pure as a people or group.

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - Dress and grooming have been laid down at various times.
                   + No pantsuits for ladies
                   + No beards or moustaches
                   + Short hair on men
                   + No coloured shirts for men
                   + No gold rimmed glasses
                   + Certain styles of clothing
             o - Only 2 organisations: Jehovah's and Satan's. You cannot be part of both.
             o - World has no conscience - all dishonest
             o - Must keep clear of worldly celebrations (Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Mother's & Father's Day, Thanksgiving etc)
             o - Loyalty displayed through meeting attendance and participation, field service, choice of marriage partners [strong 'in the truth'], shunning disfellowshipped relatives and friends.

       * 4. CULT OF CONFESSION - Reporting to leadership

         This is closely related to the demand for purity. Confession is carried beyond the ordinary religious, legal and therapeutic expressions to the point of becoming a cult in itself. In totalist hands, confession becomes a means of exploiting, rather than offering solace for these vulnerabilities.

         Totalist confession is an act of self-surrender, the expression of the merging of the individual and environment. There is a dissolution of self, talents and money. Conformity.

         The cult of confession has effects quite the reverse of its ideal of total exposure; rather than eliminating personal secrets, it increases and intensifies them.

         The individual becomes caught up in continuous conflict over which secrets to preserve and which to surrender, over ways to reveal lesser secrets can be revealed and ways to protect more important ones.

         The cult of confession makes it virtually impossible to attain reasonable balance between worth and humility.

         e.g. In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - Confessing infringements to an Elder.
             o - Putting in field reports (test of spirituality) [A monthly report of one's activities for that month. How many hours door-knocking; number of books and magazines sold; number of people one studied doctrine with etc]
             o - Accept orders without question. Ask "How high" when told to jump.
             o - Any who are aware of another's sin must put this one in to the elders or the guilt will rest on their shoulders.
             o - Congregation is made aware of the sin through talks and restrictions placed on guilty ones.

       * 5. SACRED SCIENCE - Absolute "Truth"

         Their "truth" is the absolute truth. It is sacred - beyond questioning. There is a reverence demanded for the leadership. They have ALL the answers. Only to them is given the revelation of "truth".

         The ultimate moral vision becomes the ultimate science and the person who dares to criticise it, or even think criticism, is immoral, irreverent and "unscientific".

         The assumption here is not so much that man can be God, but rather that man's IDEAS can be God.

         This gives sense of security to the member. They are confident they can get the answer to the most difficult problem or question.

         e.g. In Jehovah's Witnesses you can be disfellowshipped (kicked out) for daring to question what is taught in their publications.
             o - Watchtower demands full devotion of members. Must not question the Organization (= questioning God)
             o - There is an answer to everything, if you cannot find it in the publications you must 'wait on Jehovah' and not 'push ahead'.
             o - Organisation itself will survive Armageddon but individual Jehovah's Witnesses have no such assurance.

       * 6. LOADING THE LANGUAGE - Thought terminating cliches

         Everything is compressed into brief, highly reductive, definitive-sounding phrases, easily memorised and easily expressed.

         There are "good" terms which represents the groups ideology and "evil" terms to represent everything outside which is to be rejected. Totalist language is intensely divisive, all-encompassing jargon, unmercifully judging. To those outside the group this language is tedious - the language of non-thought.

         This effectively isolates members from outside world. The only people who understand you are other members. Other members can tell if you are really one of them by how you talk.

         This narrowness of the language is constricting. The individual is linguistically deprived because language is central to the human experience and his capacities for thinking and feeling are immensely restricted.

         While initially this loaded language can give a sense of security to the new believer, an uneasiness develops over time. This uneasiness may result in a withdrawal into the system and he preaches even harder to hide his problem and demonstrate his loyalty. It may also produce an inner division and the individual will publicly give the right performance while privately have his own thoughts.

         Either way, his imagination becomes increasingly disassociated from his actual life experiences and may even tend to atrophy from disuse.

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - Theocratic strategy
             o - "ark of salvation"
             o - "new light"
             o - "meat in due season"
             o - "faithful & discreet slave"
             o - "apostate"
             o - "The anointed"
             o - Book study
             o - Christendom
             o - "Christ Jesus" instead of "Jesus Christ"
             o - 'back calls' now called 'return visits' (terminology changes indicate who might be falling behind or who is not really a member)
             o - "Jehovah will take care of it in his due time."
             o - "It's the truth" - doesn't matter if they make a mistake
             o - Where else is there to go?
             o - Worldly - Governing Body - New System of Things

       * 7. DOCTRINE OVER PERSON - Doctrine supersedes human experience

         The ideological myth merges with their "truth" and the resulting deduction can be so overpowering and coercive that is simply replaces reality. Consequently past events can be altered, rewritten or even ignored to make them consistent with the current reality. This alteration is especially lethal when the distortions are imposed on the individual's memory.

         They demand character and identity of a person be reshaped to fit their clone of mentality. The individual must fit the rigid contours of the doctrinal mould instead of developing their own potential and personality.

         The underlying assumption is that the doctrine - including its mythological elements - is ultimately more valid, true and real than is any aspect of actual human character or human experience. The individual under such pressure is propelled into an intense conflict with his own sense of integrity, a struggle which take place in relation to polarised feelings if sincerity and insincerity.

         Absolute sincerity is demanded by the group yet this must be put to one side when changes take place the individual has to deny the original belief ever existed. Personal feelings are suppressed and members must appear to be contented and enthusiastic at all times.

         Some cults believe that all illness is a result of lack of faith and evidence of sin in your life. These things have to be prayed away and medical attention is ignored as a "sign of faith."

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - "There is no life outside the organisation" so when they see people who have made a life outside they revert back to doctrine over what they see.
             o - If an experience doesn't fit, it must be demons.
             o - Will ignore needs of others because doctrine overrides human experience. i.e. will ignore needs of disfellowshipped or marked persons no matter how serious those needs are.
             o - Those who were JW's before 1975 and are still JW's will deny they ever believed Armageddon was due that year - even those who sold homes, delayed medical treatment etc.
             o - Watchtower has final authority even over personal experience.
             o - Blood transfusions, etc. Conscience matters are discussed only in the light of Watchtower doctrine (not left to individuals' consciences).

       * 8. DISPENSING OF EXISTENCE - Who is worthy to live

         They have the right to decide who is worthy of life and who isn't. They also decide which history books are accurate and which are not.

         Those in the organisation are worthy of life; those outside worthy of death. The outsiders can be permitted to live if they change and become an insider. Members live in fear of being pronounced "dead". They have a fear of annihilation or extinction. The emotional conflict is one of "being vs nothingness".

         Existence comes to depend upon creed (I believe, therefore I am), upon mission (I obey, therefore I am) and beyond these, upon a sense of total merger with the organisation. Should he stray from the "truth" his right to exist may be withdrawn and he is pronounced "dead".

         e.g. - In Jehovah's Witnesses

             o - "Sheep and goats" - how one responds to "Christ's brothers" decides their future. ("Christ's brothers" are those who rule the organisation. How you respond to their message as carried by their messengers decides your eternal future).
             o - Elders decide who is worthy of life at Judicial Committee meetings.
             o - They decide who is worthy of a resurrection - (Sodom & Gommorah).
             o - Disfellowshiping 'sinners' denyies them any hope for a future outside the Organisation.
             o - They will blatently lie to achieve goals and consider this to be "theocratic strategy".
             o - Any information contrary to the Watchtower 'system' is not considered worth listening to or reading.
             o - Witnesses are forbidden to discuss such information, especially if is considered 'apostate' [put together by former members]

    IN SUMMARY

    The more clearly these eight points are obvious, the greater the resemblance to ideological totalism. The more an organisation utilises such totalist devices to change individuals, the greater its resemblance to thought reform.

    Remember ..... A group does not have to be religious to be cultic in behaviour. High demand groups can be commercial, political and psychological.

    Be aware, especially if you are a bright, intelligent and idealistic person. The most likely person to be caught up in this type of behavioural system is the one who says "I won't get caught. It will never happen to me. I am too intelligent for that sort of thing."

    ADOPT AN ALIEN..!

    Yes, you can do it, and believe me, you will find just the Alien you want.
    Why? Because in the Exopolitical Circus, everybody has his own kind of Alien (ET.)

    Let me tell you about this:

    Consider the Aliens  Dr. Michael Salla likes best. He is a politician-mystic, so his aliens are politicians. They interview Eisenhower and their presence creates political events in the UN. Salla also worries about the Disclosure that would be, after all, a political event, right? Also he teaches Galactic Diplomacy.

    On the contrary, Alfred Webre's aliens are in strict conformity with the Law. They are legalistic, since Webre is a Judge. His ET's punished us with a Quarantine and dictated the Corpus of Universal Laws to...a lawyer. (see his books in the matter)

    Dr. Richard Boylan, self proclaimed Councilor or Earth, finds his audience in kids, star/seeds and other sensitive true -believers. Consequently his aliens are nice, interested in finding girls and boys, and  have Family. (Human-Alien Hybrids). They were friends of the Indians, but not truly friends since the White Conquerors of America massacred 75 % of the American Native Popularion. Not very effective this "friendship" right?

    Dr. Greer is, between other things, a body-builder, and of course a strong man, so, with a snap of his fingers, he brings alien crafts to his living-room.

    This teaches us several things. Each one creates his /her own Aliens. The Aliens of Webre are NOT the aliens of Boylan or Salla.

    So, as we wrote before, each EXO creates his own kind of aliens, but ALL OF THEM have a characteristic in common. They are never here. They are the promised future show but the Real Thing never comes. The Stage is Empty. We have people talking and writing about Aliens, but not Aliens.

    Now, to those who think I am a Skeptic, on the contrary, I am not a Skeptic. After more than four Decades of Research I am convinced that the UFO Phenomenon is with us from the beginning of times, but we do not know what it is. Probably, the complexity of the whole Phenomenon, present and historical is such that we cannot understand it.
    The ET theories are just Class B science-fiction, a crude simplification of something that we don,t understand.

    NEW "ATTRACTION" in the EXOPOLITICAL CIRCUS.

    Dear friends, as you know, the big enemy of Exopolitics and similar mythologies is the NHS.The "nothing happens Syndrome".

    The Exos present the show, but...the promised "aliens" never arrive. Exopolitics is a Play without players, a movie without actors, a book without characters.

    So, now we have Exopolitics News, and this will be funny because we will have NEWS but not EVENTS. 

    Something like " yesterday, at 10.30 pm, two ....were detected in....by several neighbours who will remain anonymous ....

    Dr. Michael Salla said that this new....shows that soon, perhaps..... there will be disclosure...wait a few days more, or a few years if necessary, and READ.....EXOPOLITICAL NEWS...and keep yourself disinformed, sorry a typo, informed.  Of course, the EXONews Agency will have headquarters in Michael and Angelika house...where else? But so much work for two...because you know how many things happen in the "paradigmatic " field of Exopolitics. 

    We will have secret meetings in the Vatican, secret meetings in UN, secret meetings in Kona, and a few secret meetings in Moscow and Tokyo.. NO, PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR EVIDENCES..! It's not fair. There will be no evidences at all and ALL OUR SOURCES WILL REMAIN ANONYMOUS... BECAUSE as you all know, the Show must go on..!

    (By the way, looks like Alfred Webre was excommunicated...???) 

    Fraternally

    Exopolitics Institute

    M e d i a   R e l e a s e

    FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

    Exopolitics Institute News Service (ExoNews) Launched

    [[May 10, 2010, Kona, Hawaii] The Exopolitics Institute is proud to announce the launch of an Exopolitics News Service dedicated to bringing to public attention news concerning extraterrestrial life and its public policy implications. The primary mission of "ExoNews" is to promote public debate and awareness of exopolitics which has been defined as "an interdisciplinary scientific field, with its roots in the political sciences, that focuses on research, education and public policy with regard to the actors, institutions and processes, associated with extraterrestrial life, as well as the wide range of implications this entails through public advocacy and newly emerging paradigms." ExoNews is sponsored by the Exopolitics Institute, a U.S. based 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization established in 2005. The Exopolitics Institute News Service will be headed by an international editorial board. The Board comprises Come Carpientier (India); Neil Gould (Hong Kong); David Griffin M.Sc., (United Kingdom); Paola Harris, M.Ed. (USA/Italy); Douglas McClure, M.A. (South Africa); Michael Salla, Ph.D. (USA/Australia) ; and Victor Viggiani M.Ed. (Canada).


    According to Dr Michael Salla, founder of the Exopolitics Institute, "the need for an Exopolitics News Service has never been greater as evidenced by the surge in interest in public policy issuesconcerrning extraterrestrial life raised by Prof Stephen Hawking's recent speculations concerning the motivations of extraterrestrial life." Furthermore, Dr Salla claims that "as officially sponsored exobiology conferences increasingly question the social implications of extraterrestrial life being discovered, as evidenced in conferences organized by the Vatican (November 2009) and the Royal Society of London (January 2010), this will inevitably lead to greater scientific and public interest in the field of exopolitics."


    Neil Gould, founder of Exopolitics Hong Kong, writes: "Corporate control of the international media has created a polluted worldview through the agenda of transglobal corporations. Association with the geopolitically inspired military industrial complex has deprived mankind of the right to knowledge, technological advancement in science, new energy sources that will eliminate the use of fossil fuels, and of an awareness of the extraterrestrial presence engaging this planet since the dawn or our age. The Exopolitics Institute News Service brings breaking news, articles and general information with regard to extraterrestrial life, circumventing the ET media truth embargo. Its aim is to restore the worldview, freeing up the consciousness of this planet enabling a smooth social and political transition into the new paradigm."


    David Griffin (Exopolitics United Kingdom) writes: "Having observed the dramatic rise in the last decade for information and analysis of exopolitical related themes, a dedicated Exonews site contributed to by core researchers in the field will be a useful asset to the online world. It is important that the growing alternative media scene assumes a role equal to that of more mainstream outlets in order to keep the exopolitical context as free of bias and noise as possible in the expanding world of networked communication.


    "We are on the brink a of the greatest revelations in human history," according to Victor Viggiani (Exopolitics Canada). "One day very soon our entire planetary civilization will be unitied in its understanding and appreciation of the Extraterrestrail presence. The Exopolitics News Service will play a leadership role in providing professional, and substantive information for global institutions, all levels of governance and mainstream media about the disclosure and post-diclosure significance of engagement with an ET reality. The entire global village is now able to come to one place for news on how off-world civilizations will impact every facet of our existence – and that place is The Exopolitics News Service."


    More information about the mission and editorial board comprising the news service is available here.


    The Exopolitics Institute News Service website is available here.

    ETs ALWAYS CHOOSE THE WORST PEOPLE.

    Curious...the ETs ALWAYS contact the worst people.What we can expect from them if now his contact is a DICTATOR?

     Ilyumzhinov was elected President in 1993, at the age of thirty-one. He immediately abolished the parliament, altered the constitution, and lengthened his term of office. He finds little beauty in democracy and readily concedes that his republic is corrupt. ("Who was it that they arrested last week?'' he said to me. "Something having to do with the inspection of the lower courts—for bribes, or something. Anyway, while money exists, while there is government, beginning with the Roman Empire, and in the thousands of years since—it's always been a problem.")

    Dr. Salla's Exopolitical Circus is Open

    Time for the Circus. Everything is ready. Yes..! now you can learn Galactic Diplomacy. Isn't it great?
    Dr. Michael Salla is a "pioneer" in Exopolitics.

    Dr. Michael Salla

    He has the smile of a snake oil seller. But honest, because when talking about Extraterrestrials, he writes that the ET presence in our planet is JUST AN HYPOTHESIS.
    But wait, wait wait a moment. Just tell me how it,s possible to learn galactic diplomacy IF we don't know if the ET exist or not. Besides, we don't know how they are, and IF they are truly interested in Diplomacy.

    So, I think that something is very WRONG here.
    In his review of Salla's book " Exopolitics: Political Implications of Extraterrestrial Presence", Stefan Isaksson writes:

    "Everything we think we know is a hoax, a lie, a cover constructed by different "secret governments" around the world in an attempt to keep the greater mass ignorant about the extraterrestrial existence. Even the most bizarre of bizarre ideas are very possible to Salla. For instance: in the final days of World War II, the German elite, helped by extraterrestrials, fled to the Antarctic and lived in underground bases; the Cold War was a scam that really was all about which super power could gain the most knowledge from the extraterrestrials, the rearmament programme during the Reagan era was initiated in order to build up a defence system against evil extraterrestrials; all sorts of non-Earthlings have infiltrated mankind's many institutions; and the on-going war in Iraq is really about finding ancient extraterrestrial technology buried in the sand since the days of the Sumerians."

    You see, it's easy to make some money selling our fictions, particularly IF we accuse the imaginary BIG CONSPIRACY for everything that sounds rational.  B.C solves anything.
    Forget about truth and please, do not think for a single moment that these people believe in their own rhetoric. Not at all, because they are (or were) intelligent people which cannot be serious about all this nonsense.
     
    Their clients are those who desperately need to believe in something. Bored people that needs hope in something else. People that hate their daily life.

    Well, after all, you are free to do with your money what you want.
    However, I would think twice before paying for a Course in Galactic Diplomacy... How about waiting to see in the Aliens exist or not before wasting your money?  It's up to you, dear friends with Brain.

    Dr. Richard Boylan Contradicts Himself.

    Dear friends

    Dr. Richard Boylan tells us that a group of extraterrestrial scientifics, the Altimarians, are here on Earth working (he says ) to fix our environmental problems.
    ALSO he says that the omnipotent Cabal is in fact a Shadow Government which controls the Government, the scientific establishment, and even the military-industrial complex.
    HOWEVER, nobody payed a visit to Doctor Boylan to "learn more" about these Illegal Extraterrestrial Aliens, right?
    WHY IS THIS SO?
    Simply because the authorities know that the presumed aliens are nothing but an invention of the self-proclaimed Councilor of Earth.
    The Cabal, by the way is also a product of Boylan fantasies.
    Does this man believe that we are Idiots believing anything he says? When will he show us some Evidence?
    NEVER. If you ask for it, automatically you will be accused of Cabalism.

    Lies can only be protected with new lies.

    Be happy and Well

    Selling our Soul to Irrationality

    Faith is just "belief not based on evidence"
    Carl Sagan stated that faith is the belief in the absence of evidence. "For me , believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake."

     For Richard Dawkins, faith is merely belief without evidence; a process of active non-thinking. A practice which only degrades our understanding of the natural world by allowing anyone to make a claim about reality that is based solely on their personal thoughts, and possibly distorted perceptions.

    Faith is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true, belief in and assent to the truth of what is declared by another, based on his or her supposed authority and truthfulness.

    We will not argue about the importance of Faith in Religion. Muslims and Christians kill themselves in the name of Faith.

    In mythological Ufology, the rhetoric of people like Michael Salla, Alfred Webre or Richard Boylan demand faith as primary condition. Without faith, the whole exopolitical and exobiological discourse is meaningless.

    This is the tradition in UFO mythology.  We must always believe in what these people say, even if they have no scientific background at all. In fact we must deny science and instead believe in  pseudo-scientific, unsubstantiated rants.

    We need to discredit the whole scientific establishment if we want to believe in what Boylan, Webre, Salla or Greer say.

    We must "sell our soul to irrationality" and forget Logical, Rational, Critical thinking.

    We are back thousands of years, again in a dark age of gods and all-knowing shamans.
    We are into superstition, and in the political context, ready for Fascism and Authoritarianism.

    But what are the motivations of all these fantasists?
    There could be several motivations.
    Ego, profiteering, resentment against society and science, and the will to control people for the pleasure of it.
    Also we must consider the possibility that some of them believe in what they say, but usually the insane rhetoric is not clearly elaborated.
    Personally I do not believe that they are professional disinformers. This would be the counter-conspiracy, the echo, the opposite delirium.

    What is true is that the whole pseudo-ufolofgical scheme works well for those in Power.
    Keeping people Ignorant and superstitious is what the Big Corporations need to remain in control.
    Collective hypnosis, ignorance, belief in the Big Cosmic Brother, these are the new "opium for the people".
