Al Borealis, 2022 Year in Review |576|

The NDE content sucked me into the show back in '08 and more recent themes of psyops/limited-hangouts/controlled-opposition have continued to provide me with a valuable service as I seek to navigate the world amid increasingly dense waves of weaponized bullshit. It's this service of aiding in the discernment of truth that I would miss most of all and which hope Alex continues to provide in some form because answers to the big questions will remain inactionable unless and until the smokescreen is cleared.

I can imagine Alex's new role taking a couple different forms. The first being something of a debate moderator (similar to Munk) where the first order of business would be to completely dismantle flat-earth / no-virus / no-planes type shit. Then, after mainstream appeal has been established, the debates can move into more interesting territory where Alex would be uniquely qualified to select representative arguments highlighting the truth as we already know it, and facilitate mass upward migration of consciousness.

Another way Alex could continue to be of service to me is to author some comprehensive work on propaganda and other forms of soft warfare. Imagine "the prince" but written for the modern era. Why does it matter? How long has it been employed? How effective is it? How can it be identified? How can it be countered? Does it effect the advancement of knowledge and the betterment of humanity generally? And probably most importantly: what is the state of the art?

thx so much FL. glad to know we've connected.

I've been thinking about some ways that I can go forward. I have some shows in the works. some of the main changes I'd like to see happen have to do with how I approach skeptiko is my journey changes :)

I also want to ask for help from listeners... well not exactly listeners... I mean. anyone can and should be able to listen... but the people I really care about are folks who want to help me develop these shows. I get excited about the idea of actively working with folks who are trying to figure this stuff out in the same way that I am. I hope to be able to publish a brief solo show this week with more details.
 
In light of the fact that Earth Humans learned Airplane technology as recently at 100 years ago, and the Universe being14,000,000,000 years old…
What are the chances that an ET who visits us would be flying around in something only a few hundred years more advanced than our tech?
hey RobbE... I hear you, but I keep thinking that we might be dealing with multiple visitors, and/or multiple timelines IYKWIM.

this is one of the reasons I think Bruce Fenton's work is so important as it forces me to think about a radically different timeline... i.e. events that happened 780000 years ago put sound a lot like what could be happening today.
 
I think entertaining the "no virus" idea for some people was rather that they AREN'T specialised in medicine, but had seen enough lies in other fields that their approach to other fields is to be extremely sceptical of the conventional model
I not only totally get that, but have experienced/lived it. i.e. I can be a little bit to psyop-y be at times [[621]]
 
I'm leaning more to the idea that at least some types of ET are so telepathic that they can teleport anywhere. So when they use craft, it's more like entertainment for them, like how we might use rollerblades, even though we can transport ourselves much more pragmatically using other methods of transportation
yeah... could be. I could also Imagine a situation where telepathy is like a super VR Zoom call... but sometimes you just want to get in the car and drive there.

I agree. And geopolitically, if we don't take into account possible alien intervention and their seemingly different frames of time, we're still paddling around in the shallow end of the pool. For example, Al Borealis said he watches The Duran for his geopolitical information. Alexander Mercouris of the Duran is extremely knowledgeable about history and cultures, but he still isn't conspiratorial-minded enough, and all historical and current geopolitical analysis is superficial if one doesn't take into account that (at least some) aliens seem to be able to activate and disable the most destructive human weaponry at will. I.e. if they wanted to, I think they could intervene to stop a global war, and on the other hand they could destroy human societies too (as mythology/history as the ancients considered it) so often attests around the world.

An example of lack of scarcity would be table salt. We have technologically advanced to a position wherein we will seed other planets long before we run into scarcity of table salt (excluding if caused by psychopath rulers.)
A type III civilization would view labor and energy the way we view table salt.. meaning “why would I use more than I need, I have an unlimited supply.”
Regarding their motivation to act, I would assume a mix of leisure/adventure/thrill. But I have no way to comprehend whether they would eliminate from their livestyle things like exercise/invention/exploration etc.. but I doubt it would be part of their survival programming.

Abductions, molestation, testing, gene editing… these seem to me more and more likely the actions of a breakaway civilization and not a visitor civilization.

I agree that their scarcity… or we could generalize more and say problems/goals would be in some ways different than ours. I’m just saying that every being must be driven by a lack of something or a need/desire to move/act in some way. The fact that they do interact with us means that we serve some purpose even if in some cases the purpose might be nothing more than amusement. In other cases they seem motivated to act to help or hinder us.. and sometimes they hinder us in order to help us and sometimes their “help” becomes a hindrance.

One point I have been making is that seemingly nonsensical actions on their part might make more sense if looked at through the lens of the simulation: gods/creators operating on a different time scale than agents in training, making occasional tweaks to the agent and its environment, running various iterations to see what happens, entering into the sim to experience it, NPCs, making occasional miracles happen here or there, every frame of reality being generated by a probabilistic network or graph rather than deterministic linear computation, life review as feedback loop for Soul Goals, consciousness continuing after death, reincarnation, etc. all is much more plausible for a generation that grew up watching simulations and MMORPGs improve every year.

An aspect that doesn't seem to make much sense if we entertain the simulation hypothesis is that there are so many reports of different and opposing alien factions that appear to have great power over the rules of the simulation. It's not like just one creator or creator team seems to be in control...

And many of the "nonsensical" aspects of reality appear manipulable by people who meditate or have NDEs then gain new abilities. Is this like learning how the coding for the simulation really is, or is reality just so malleable anyway and we're remembering that the materialistic assumptions were wrong and reality really is just weird/magical
 
yeah... could be. I could also Imagine a situation where telepathy is like a super VR Zoom call... but sometimes you just want to get in the car and drive there.

It seems likely to me that there's a spectrum of transport in the cosmos, from flying around in space ships without using much psychical power, to rather ephemeral remote viewing, to a super intense VR Zoom type call, to completely "physical" transportation across the universe using psychic power
 
I have numerous reasons for thinking this. The reports of meetings with UFO beings in which craft are moved using psychical intention (as Ardy Sixkiller Clarke records). Then there are the siddhis in Indian tradition, which seem to indicate a spectrum of varying degrees of "physical" transport: e.g. 'dūraśravaṇa: Hearing things far away... dūradarśanam: Seeing things far away... manojavah: Moving the body wherever thought goes'. Then government programs such as Stargate. And even what most people assume to be materialistic space travel during the U.S. and Soviet space race, the scene was filled with occult practices: numerology, rituals to gods during launches etc.
 
Al Borealis said he watches The Duran for his geopolitical information. Alexander Mercouris of the Duran is extremely knowledgeable about history and cultures, but he still isn't conspiratorial-minded enough

Just to add, geopolitical commentators from the Duran and their contributors have a strong pro-Russian government bias. Even Gonzalo Lira, who is also in many ways a brilliant individual, has blinders up regarding this. E.g.

- the prediction that Russia would take over Kharkiv within hours of an invasion

- underestimating how much Putin's speech a couple of days before the invasion angered even deeply pro-Russian Ukrainians to become hostile to the Russian Federation

- ignoring that there were RNA jab mandates in Russia

- the debacle of annexing the four Ukrainian territories which even RT's Peter Lavelle described as inappropriate given the situation...

- And something I haven't heard anyone draw attention to: Even the aesthetics of the ceremony to annex the Ukrainian territories, all the politicians were free of masks, but the non-politician Russians who were handing out the forms to officially annex the territories were wearing masks......

- Then there's the former Russian president Medvedev, who as reported by RT said there are too many covid conspiracy theorists and the Internet should be censored...

The Duran, Gonzalo Lira et al. seem to have blinders on regarding such facts.
 
And if I understand correctly, Al Borealis seems to think Joseph Farrell is an accurate source... Even the podcast Al was referring to, of Farrell talking to an old woman, well that old woman is so out of touch that she thought the Soviet Union is still in existence......
 
The alternative scene has become a series of echo chambers with little genuine, rigorous debate. Skeptiko is a shining exception.

When I look at almost every area of the alternative scene I see such echo chambers. Brothers of the Serpent, Ben from UnchartedX... all echo chambers where genuine debate is discouraged and even censored......
 
hey RobbE... I hear you, but I keep thinking that we might be dealing with multiple visitors, and/or multiple timelines IYKWIM.

this is one of the reasons I think Bruce Fenton's work is so important as it forces me to think about a radically different timeline... i.e. events that happened 780000 years ago put sound a lot like what could be happening today.
I would love to hear about where you’re at currently with the concept of timelines. I assume many others would enjoy hearing about it too. I can’t recall you going into any detail on it in the last year or so.
I tap out on timelines. Jessa Reed seems to have a real grasp of it, and while I listened to a ton of her explanation of it I always just left it alone - like maybe it’s just not in my wheelhouse.
 
Actually after thinking about it a little bit more I do have a position that I hold in regard to timelines. I simply put, the idea is it that even if I did have the ability to swap consciousnesses between this Rob and another Rob in another timeline, Current Rob would still be stuck living out the same life. So the concept of robbing Peter to pay Paul is that play. (Or robbing Rob to pay Rob).

Then again, when Alex is talking about timelines I suspect he might just be referencing to relativity and time travel which may have nothing to do with my conception of multi-verse timelines

Well thank you for being a big part of my own journey man. I have another idea that came to me as I was finishing this latest episode. It's kinda far out but what the hell: the "conspiracy theorist support network".

I heard a familiar struggle in how "we" are to cope with the knuckle-draggers in our lives, to do so in a way that is consistent with a spiritual path, and I couldn't help but see a parallel in the alcoholic/addict's struggle/ solution. I had half a mind to try to initiate such a thing during peak covid madness when it could have helped me immensely.
 
Listening to Alex on Zero w Sam Tripoli. Episode dropped on Rokfin this morning. Only half way through and had some quick points to make.
  • First show with Sam I’ve been able to enjoy in probably 4-5 months.
  • While Alex takes a breather from weekly Skeptiko shows, could be an opportunity to go do the podcast circuit for a while help everyone else step their game up. would be a service and I have a feeling it’s highly needed. They get soft when they don’t have anyone like Alex to come call bullshit here and there.
  • Don’t know if Alex had considered posting his other podcast guest appearances to the Skeptiko forum for discussion
  • think I can hear in Sams voice he’s kinda thrown off balance a bit but in a healthy way.

Edit/Add: After finishing the episode I highly recommend everyone give it a listen. Really a great discussion and I hope we get more

Totally agree. kind of like the town meeting in the small City where I live planning their next big move vis-a-vis the climate crisis

The timeline thing is incomprehensible to me. I throw it out there because we have to incorporate all the good evidence that points in that direction... but I really have no idea what it means. it seems to very quickly get to fundamental questions about spirituality and Free Will and Karma and all that stuff
