The "making-it-look-like-it-just-rained" guys had been at it again,and when I woke up and opened the curtains, it did.
Everything looked normal enough. The trees that were supposed to shed their leaves in the fall had, and the leaves were littered all over the lawn, Halloween coloured and curling. The sky was overcast,low and grey. Winter was fast approaching and you could feel it in the air, so at least the season had remained the same, you never knew.
More importantly though, crane my neck though I did to peer out both the curved Victorian bay windows that comprised most of the corner cupola that was my studio, there were no wormholes in sight. So far, so good.
"There are two ways to travel from one Universe to another.", I remembered my Sensei saying, as he and I walked the path that wound through the forest of tiny crystalline trees that filled the Europan canyon sparkling bright blue from refracting light of the huge disk of roiled Jupiter above.
"You can jump yourself from whenwhere you are, to somewhenwhere close," and I remembered the sudden grin on the tall monk's face as he concluded: "or you can drag the entire universe with you as you go, bumping the pre-existing one somewhenwhere else. I'll leave it to you to decide which is preferable."
As I always did, I wondered which way I had traveled last night.
Whitley Strieber has a good explanation of the way it seems the multiverse works at:
Now, if we can just escape from the oppressive spiritual paradigm that is imposed upon our culture by adherents of the religiosity of ignorant skin-tent dwelling savages who mistook technological advancement by visitors to our planet as apparitions of divinity millenia ago, we MIGHT begin to be able to direct our own destiny and take our rightful place as self-aware and responsibly conscious citizens of a pan-dimensional, pan-temporal multiversal reality.
Continued wallowing in self-induced Neo-Con blindness to the true nature of human existence on a pan-galactic scale is the greatest threat to our National, and Terrestrial Security possible, IMNSHO. Because, if you view every manifestation of extra-terrestrial intelligence as some divinity to be worshiped you have given up defense against possible hostile forces before they even become apparent, AND if their very existence is kept secret for fear of upsetting pre-existing religious misconceptions about the very nature of such incursions you have surrendered to the possible subliminal psychological warfare that has prepared the way for surrender to invasion by these same forces.
Any dogmatic protestations and assertions to the contrary should be seen by our Scientific and Intelligence National Defense Institutions for what they are: Treason to the US Constitution, and to the future of the Human Genome, Species and Race! What's more important: "World Free Trade" supported by "Cargo Cult"/"Supreme Being" religious mythologies or the survival of humanity?
"Ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." Why worship aliens beings, mistaken for gods by barbarians thousands of years ago, or allow those who do to lead a free people?
Stupidity or delusion, especially by democratically elected leaders, in the face of possible threats to The Republic, IS treason!
