I made a mistake in coming here, and it was one I had to make. It's a complicated situation, and I am not prepared to explain it. Thanks for your consideration.
Have you ever *seriously* considered the potential threat to institutional power posed by [personal] UFO Contact Disclosure? It's one of those "Don't go there," areas that comes with an ostracism penalty. I have lived in that area for over a decade, and despite Ufology's pathological, triumphalist self-congratulation, it is becoming exponentially more dangerous, not less so. Know what else is real? Global fascism.
"What we know" is an exaltation of consensus, not knowledge. It often means "what I believe." Subjectivity, however, doesn't carry much Authority. You will need torches and pitchforks for that.
"No creature can learn that which his heart has no shape to hold." ~Cormac McCarthy ● This is what spiritual intelligence signifies. It is a beginning, not an end to itself. Grieve, and learn.
"One of the saddest lessons of history: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” ~Sagan ● Plot twist: The Charlatan is Astro Science.
