BEWARE OF BUREAUCRACY

“The bureaucracy that controlled the former “Old Empire” was from an ancient space opera society, run by a totalitarian [i] (Footnote) confederation of planetary governments, regulated by a brutal social, economic, and political hierarchy, [ii] (Footnote) with a royal monarch as its figurehead. [iii] (Footnote) This type of government emerges with regularity on planets where the citizens abandon personal responsibility for autonomous, self-regulation. They frequently lose their freedom to demented IS-BEs who suffer from an overwhelming paranoia that every other IS-BE is their enemy who must be controlled or destroyed. Their closest friends and allies, whom they espouse to love and cherish, are literally “loved to death” by them. Because such IS-BEs exist, The Domain has learned that freedom must be won and maintained through eternal vigilance and the ability to use defensive force to maintain it. 

As a result, The Domain has already conquered the governing planet of the “Old Empire”.  The civilization of The Domain, although considerably younger and smaller in size, is already more powerful,  better organized, and united by an egalitarian esprit de corps [iv] (Footnote) never known in the history of the “Old Empire”. The recently despoiled German totalitarian state on Earth was similar to the “Old Empire”, but not nearly as brutal, and about ten thousand times less powerful. 

Many of the IS-BEs on Earth are here because they are violently opposed to totalitarian government, [v] (Footnote) or because they were so psychotically vicious that they could not be controlled by “Old Empire” government.”

[i] “… Totalitarian…”

“Totalitarianism is a concept used in political science that describes a state that regulates nearly every aspect of public and private behavior. Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain themselves in political power by means of secret police, propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, personality cults, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, single-party states, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics.

Many consider the first totalitarian regimes to have begun in the 20th century, which include the communist regimes of the Soviet Union and Cuba, as well as totalitarianism of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Spain under Franco, Portugal under Salazar, as well as others. However some argue that totalitarianism has existed centuries prior, such as in ancient China under the political leadership of Prime Minister Li Si who helped the Qin dynasty unify China. Li Si adopted the political philosophy of Legalism as the ruling philosophical thought of China and restricted political activities and destroyed all literature and killed scholars who did not support Legalism. Totalitarianism was also used by the Spartan state in Ancient Greece. Its “educational system” was part of the totalitarian military society. The oligarchy running the state machine dictated every aspect of life, including the rearing of children.”

[ii] “…planetary governments, regulated by a brutal social, economic, and political hierarchy…”

“A hierarchy (in Greek: hieros, ‘sacred’, and arkho, ‘rule’) is a system of ranking and organizing things or people, where each element of the system (except for the top element) is a subordinate to a single other element.

A hierarchy can link entities either directly or indirectly, and either vertically or horizontally. The only direct links in a hierarchy, insofar as they are hierarchical, are to one’s immediate superior or to one of one’s subordinates, although a system that is largely hierarchical can also incorporate other organizational patterns. Indirect hierarchical links can extend “vertically” upwards or downwards via multiple links in the same direction. All parts of the hierarchy which are not vertically linked to one another can nevertheless be “horizontally” linked by traveling up the hierarchy to find a common direct or indirect superior, and then down again. This is akin to two co-workers, neither of whom is the other’s boss, but both of whose chains of command will eventually meet.”

Many human organizations, such as governments, educational institutions, businesses, churches, armies and political movements are hierarchical organizations, at least officially; commonly seniors, called “bosses”, have more power than their subordinates. Thus the relationship defining this hierarchy is “commands” or “has power over”. Some analysts question whether power “actually” works in the way the traditional organizational chart indicates, however. This view tends to emphasize the significance of the informal organization.”

[iii] “…royal monarch as its figurehead.”

“In politics, a figurehead, by metaphor with the carved figurehead at the prow of a sailing ship, is a person who holds an important title or office yet executes little actual power. Common figureheads include constitutional monarchs, such as the Emperor of Japan, or presidents in parliamentary democracies, such as the President of Israel.

While the authority of a figurehead is generally symbolic, respect and access to high levels of government can give them significant influence on some events. An example would be Emperor Hirohito’s involvement in World War II. In parliamentary systems, presidents are figureheads at times of peace (delegated such powers as convening or dismissing the national legislature), but at wartime they are often commanders in chief.

Sometimes a figurehead can be exploited in times of emergency. For example, Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi used the figurehead President of India to issue unilateral decrees that allowed her to bypass parliament when it no longer supported her.

The word can also have more sinister overtones, and refer to a powerless leader who should be exercising full authority, yet is actually being controlled by a more powerful figure behind the throne.

The tendency of this word to drift, like many words that are in a strong process of changed meanings, into the pejorative is beginning to make it unsuitable to apply to a head of state with limited constitutional authority, such that its use may become increasingly inappropriate in referring to monarchs and presidents in parliamentary systems.”

[iv] “… united by a egalitarian esprit de corps…”

“Esprit de corps, when discussing the morale of a group, is an intangible term used for the capacity of people to maintain belief in an institution or a goal, or even in oneself and others. According to Alexander H. Leighton, “morale is the capacity of a group of people to pull together persistently and consistently in pursuit of a common purpose”.

Egalitarian, (derived from the French word égal, meaning equal) is a political doctrine that holds that all people should be treated as equals from birth. Generally it applies to being held equal under the law, the church, and society at large. In actual practice, one may be considered an egalitarian in most areas listed above, even if not subscribing to equality in every possible area of individual difference. For example, one might support equal rights in race matters but not in gender issues, or vice versa.”

[v] “… Many of the IS-BEs on Earth are here because they are violently opposed to totalitarian governments…”

Editor’s Note: Coincidentally, or perhaps NOT coincidentally, almost one year after this interview, the novel “1984” by George Orwell, which was published in June of 1948.  The  state of the U.S. government has grown to mirror many of the features described by Orwell in the book, “Nineteen Eighty-Four”.  It is easy to speculate that Orwell may have been “influenced” by an IS-BE of The Domain while writing this book.  Or, at the very least, he was one of the IS-BEs sentenced to Earth because he is one of “… the IS-BEs on Earth are here because they are violently opposed to totalitarian  governments…”.

The following description of the basis for Orwell’s “1984” are taken verbatim from Wikipedia.org.  It is a very close description of the “Old Empire” government:

“Much of Oceanic society is based upon Stalin’s Soviet Union. The “Two Minutes’ Hate” was the ritual demonization of State enemies and rivals; Big Brother resembles Joseph Stalin; the Party’s archenemy, Emmanuel Goldstein, resembles Leon Trotsky (both are Jewish, both have the same physiognomy, and Trotsky’s real surname was ‘Bronstein’). Another suggested inspiration for Goldstein is Emma Goldman, the famous Anarchist figure. Doctored photography is a propaganda technique and the creation of unpersons in the story, analogous to Stalin’s enemies being made nonpersons and being erased from official photographic records; the police treatment of several characters recalls the Moscow Trials of the Great Purge.”

There a very many interesting parallels between the concepts discussed by Orwell in “1984”, and the description of the “Old Empire” government and the Earth prison planet activities in the transcripts of the “Alien Interviews” with Airl.

For example, a few of these are parallels cited in the following excerpt from the internet encyclopedia, Wikipedia.org:

“The Thought Police capture Winston and Julia in their sanctuary bedroom and they are separately interrogated at the Ministry of Love, where the regime’s opponents are tortured and killed, but sometimes released (to be executed at a later date); Charrington, the shop keeper who rented them the room reveals himself an officer of the Thought Police. In the Ministry of Love torture chamber, O’Brien tells Smith that he will be cured of his hatred for the Party. During a session, he explains to Winston that torture’s purpose is to alter his way of thinking, not to extract a fake confession, adding that once curedaccepting reality as the Party describes — he then will be executed; electroshock torture will achieve that, continuing until O’Brien decides Winston is cured.”

For complete comparative analysis, read the book, “1984” or read the entire reference to the book on the internet at Wikipedia.org,  excerpted below:

“Nineteen Eighty-Four (also titled 1984), by George Orwell (the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair), is an English dystopian novel about life in a dictatorship as lived by Winston Smith, an intellectual worker at the Ministry of Truth, and his degradation when he runs afoul of the totalitarian government of Oceania, the state in which he lives in the year 1984.

Orwell’s influences

In the essay Why I Write, Orwell explains that all the serious work he wrote since the Spanish Civil War in 1936 was “written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic socialism.” Therefore, Nineteen Eighty-Four is an anti-totalitarian cautionary tale about the betrayal of a revolution by its defenders. He already had stated distrust of totalitarianism and betrayed revolutions in Homage to Catalonia and Animal Farm. Coming Up For Air, at points, celebrates the personal and political freedoms lost in Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The novel’s title, its terms and its language (Newspeak), and its author’s surname are bywords for personal privacy lost to national state security. The adjective “Orwellian” denotes totalitarian action and organization; the phrase: Big Brother is Watching You connotes pervasive, invasive surveillance. The following quotation has become famous:

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

Although the novel has been banned or challenged in some countries, it, along with Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, and Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, is among literature’s most famous dystopias. In 2005, Time magazine listed it among the best one hundred English-language novels published since 1923.

Nineteen Eighty-Four introduces Oceania, one of the world’s three intercontinental totalitarian super-states. The story occurs in London, the “chief city of Airstrip One”, itself a province of Oceania that “had been called England or Britain”. Posters of “Big Brother”, the Party leader, with the caption BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, dominate the city landscapes; two-way television (the telescreen) dominates the private and public spaces of the populace.

Oceania’s people are in three classes — (i) the Inner Party, (ii) the Outer Party, and (iii) the “Proles”. This government, the Party, controls them via the Ministry of Truth (MiniTru), where Winston Smith, the protagonist, works; he is a member of the Outer Party. His job in MiniTru is the continual rewriting and altering of history so that the government is always right and correct: destroying evidence, amending newspaper articles, deleting the existence of people identified as “unpersons”.

The story begins on April 4, 1984: “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.” The date is questionable, because it is what Winston Smith perceives. In the story’s course, he concludes it as irrelevant, because the State can arbitrarily alter it; the year 1984 and its world are transmutable.

The novel does not render the world’s full history to 1984. Indeed, because the book Winston reads is given to him by a Party member, it is possible that the book itself is meant to be a deception, and the history of the world of 1984 is somewhat different. Winston’s recollections, and what he reads in The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism, by Emmanuel Goldstein, reveal that after the Second World War, the United Kingdom fell to civil war, becoming part of Oceania. Simultaneously, the Soviet Union encompassed mainland Europe, forming Eurasia; the third super state, Eastasia, comprises the east Asian countries around China and Japan.

There was an atomic war, fought mainly in Europe, western Russia, and North America. It is unclear what occurred first: the civil war wherein the Party assumed power or the United States’ annexation of the British Empire or the war during which Colchester was bombed.

During the Second World War, George Orwell repeatedly said that British democracy, as it existed before 1939, would not survive the war; the question being: Would it end via Fascist coup d’état (from above) or via Socialist revolution (from below)? During the war, Orwell admitted events proved him wrong: “What really matters is that I fell into the trap of assuming that ‘the war and the revolution are inseparable’ “

NATURAL SELECTION SCIENCE FICTION

“The skill required to modify the planet into an ecologically interactive environment that will support billions of diverse species was an immense undertaking.  Specialized consultants from nearly every biotechnology company in the galaxy were brought in to help with the project.

What you see now on Earth is the huge variety of life forms left behind.  Your scientists believe that the fallacious “theory of evolution” is an explanation for the existence of all the life forms here.  The truth is that all life forms on this and any other planet in this universe were created by companies like ours.

How else can you explain the millions of completely divergent and unrelated species of life on the land and in the oceans of this planet?  How else can you explain the source of spiritual animation which defines every living creature?  To say it is the work of “god”, is far too broad.  Every IS-BE has many names and faces in many times and places.  Every IS-BE is a god. When they inhabit a physical object they are the source of Life.

For example, there are millions of species [i] (Footnote) of insects.  About 350,000 of these are species of beetles. [ii] (Footnote) There may be as many as 100 million species of life forms on Earth at any given time.  In addition, there are many times more extinct species of life on Earth than there are living life forms.  Some of these will be rediscovered in the fossil or geological records of Earth.

The current “theory of evolution” of life forms on Earth does not consider the phenomena of biological diversity. Evolution by natural selection is science fiction.  One species does not accidentally, or randomly evolve to become another species, as the Earth textbooks indicate, without manipulation of genetic material by an IS-BE. [iii] (Footnote)

A simple example of IS-BE intervention is the selective breeding of a species [iv] (Footnote) on Earth.  Within the past few hundred years several hundred dog breeds and hundreds of varieties of pigeons and dozens of Koi fish have been “evolved” in just a few years, beginning with only one original breed.  Without active intervention by IS-BEs, biological organisms rarely change.”

FOOTNOTES:


[i] “…species…”

“In biology, a species is one of the basic units of biological classification and a taxonomic rank. A species is often defined as a group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring. While in many cases this definition is adequate, more precise or differing measures are often used, such as based on similarity of DNA or morphology. Presence of specific locally-adapted traits may further subdivide species into subspecies.

The commonly used names for plant and animal taxa sometimes correspond to species: for example, “lion,” “walrus,” and “Camphor tree,” each refers to a species. In other cases common names do not: for example, “deer” refers to a family of 34 species, including Eld’s Deer, Red Deer and Wapiti (Elk). The last two species were once considered a single species, illustrating how species boundaries may change with increased scientific knowledge.

Each species is placed within a single genus. This is a hypothesis that the species is more closely related to other species within its genus than to species of other genera. All species are given a binomial name consisting of the generic name and specific name (or specific epithet). For example, Pinus palustris (commonly known as the Longleaf Pine).

A usable definition of the word “species” and reliable methods of identifying particular species are essential for stating and testing biological theories and for measuring biodiversity. Traditionally, multiple examples of a proposed species must be studied for unifying characters before it can be regarded as a species. Extinct species known only from fossils are generally difficult to give precise taxonomic rankings to. A species which has been described scientifically can be referred to by its binomial names.

Nevertheless, as Charles Darwin remarked,

‘I look at the term species as one arbitrarily given for the sake of convenience to a set of individuals closely resembling each other …. it does not essentially differ from the term variety, which is given to less distinct and more fluctuating forms. The term variety, again in comparison with mere individual difference, is also applied arbitrarily, and for mere convenience sake.’

Because of the difficulties with both defining and tallying the total numbers of different species in the world, it is estimated that there are anywhere between 2 million and 100 million different species.”

— Reference:  Wikipedia.org

[ii] “…species of beetle…”

“Beetles are a group of insects which have the largest number of species. They are placed in the order Coleoptera, which means “sheathed wing” and contains more described species than in any other order in the animal kingdom, constituting about twenty-five percent of all known life-forms. Forty percent of all described insect species are beetles (about 350,000 species), and new species are frequently discovered. Estimates put the total number of species, described and undescribed, at between 5 and 8 million.

Beetles can be found in almost all habitats, but are not known to occur in the sea or in the polar regions. They interact with their ecosystems in several ways. They often feed on plants and fungi, break down animal and plant debris, and eat other invertebrates. Some species are prey of various animals including birds and mammals. Certain species are agricultural pests, such as the Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata, the boll weevil Anthonomus grandis, the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum, and the mungbean or cowpea beetle Callosobruchus maculatus, while other species of beetles are important controls of agricultural pests. For example, coccinellidae (“ladybirds” or “ladybugs”) consume aphids, scale insects, thrips, and other plant-sucking insects that damage crops.”

— Reference:  Wikipedia.org

[iii]One species does not evolve to become another species, as the Earth textbooks indicate, without the intervention and manipulation of genetic material by an IS-BE.”

“Genetic engineering, recombinant DNA technology, genetic modification / manipulation (GM) and gene splicing are terms applied to the direct manipulation of an organism’s genes. Genetic engineering is not to be confused with traditional breeding where the organism’s genes are manipulated indirectly. Genetic engineering uses the techniques of molecular cloning and transformation. Genetic engineering endeavors have found some success in improving crop technology, the manufacture of synthetic human insulin through the use of modified bacteria, the manufacture of erythropoietin in Chinese hamster ovary cells, and the production of new types of experimental mice such as the oncomouse (cancer mouse) for research.

Since a protein sequence is specified by a segment of DNA called a gene, novel versions of that protein can be produced by changing the DNA sequence of the gene. The companies that own the modified genome are able to patent it. In the case of basic crops, the companies gain control of foodstuffs, controlling food production on a large scale and reducing agrobidiversity to a few varieties. The only apparent interest in promoting this tecnology appears to be purely economic, despite the claims of seed companies such as Monsanto and Novartis to solve the world food scarcity. It is now popularly understood that it is not the lack of food on a wholewide scale that is the main problem, but its distribution, aggravated by prohibitive tariffs by rich nations. Genetically modified crops do not reduce hunger. The majority of genetically crops are destined for animal food to meet the high demand for meat in developed countries. No genetic modification have yet to serve the needs of mankind despite all the promises in this direction.

However, even with regard to this technology’s great potential, some people have raised concerns about the introduction of genetically engineered plants and animals into the environment and the potential dangers of human consumption of GM foods. They say that these organisms have the potential to spread their modified genes into native populations thereby disrupting natural ecosystems. This has already happened.”

— Reference:  Wikipedia.org

[iv] “…genetic manipulation of a species…”

“How much genetic variation is there? Historical debate: Classical school held that there was very little genetic variation, most individuals were homozygous for a “wild-type” allele. Rare heterozygous loci due to recurrent mutation; natural selection purges populations of their “load” of mutations. Balance school held that many loci will be heterozygous in natural populations and heterozygotes maintained by “balancing selection” (heterozygote advantage). Selection thus plays a role in maintaining variation.

How do we measure variation? To show that there is a genetic basis to a continuously varying character one can study 1) resemblance among relatives: look at the offspring of individuals from parents in different parts of the distribution; can estimate heritability (more later). 2) artificial selection: pigeons and dogs show that there is variation present; does not tell how much variation.”

WRONG QUESTIONS = WRONG ANSWERS

One of the most startling revelations to come out of the “Alien Interview” transcripts are: 1) Humanity is not asking the right questions about itself, life, the universe, the gods, evolution, religion, or just about anything else!  How can we advance our understanding of our existence if we don’t even know who we are, how we came to be here, and what relationship we have to the rest of existence?

Obviously, the myopically isolated placement of Mankind on a tiny planet on the rim of a galaxy, disconnected from any other discernible life forms, is an overwhelming disadvantage, to say the least.  The recorded memory of Mankind is barely more than 10,000 years, at best.  One obvious question is “where did the human race come from?”.   The evidence indicates that all of the varied races of Mankind just sort of “appeared”, fully formed with cultures, language, religion, pyramid building skills, agriculture, mythology, etc., at many places all over the world, simultaneously, about 12,000 years ago.  The mythology of every continent in the world reports and earlier, advanced civilization, and a great flood that wiped them out.  OK.  So, where did they come from?

The mathematical odds that we are the “only intelligent life” in the universe are infinitesimally small.  This begs the question, “why do we feel that there must be other intelligent life out there? ”  Again, there is no indisputable evidence to answer this.  It’s just a “feeling” many of us share.  We see UFOs everywhere, apparently, yet there is no indisputable evidence that they exist.  The potentials answers are obvious:  1) they don’t really exist 2) they really DO exist, but they don’t want us to know about it.  However, there may be real answers to these, and many other questions, contained in the statements of “Airl” the officer, pilot, and engineer of The Domain interviewed by Matilda O’Donnell MacElroy.  Let’s assume for a moment that the information in the transcript is factual:

Airl says that she is a member of an intergalactic expeditionary force of “The Domain”, a very advanced civilization which is trillions of year old.  She says that  Earth is a prison planet, and we are all inmates being held here without our knowledge and against our will.  Were are in a perpetually renewed state of amnesia by our captors.  The beings, or “IS-BEs”, sentenced to Earth are all unwanted by the governments of “Old Empire” planets that sent us here.  The population of Earth is comprised of psychotic criminals and sexual perverts, co-mingled with artists, geniuses, managers, revolutionaries and a wide variety of “untouchables”.  Even though, as “IS-BEs”, we come from a races of beings and civilizations that are trillions of years old, we are all unwanted and forgotten by the societies who have kicked us out and shipped us here.  Further, we are forced to inhabit fragile biological bodies from which there is, apparently, no easy escape.  We are not in our native place or state of being, anymore than a unicorn could evolve from a goat.  Is it any wonder that people find any or all of this difficult to believe?

To compound the overwhelming chaos of our condition, we have been lied to by our captors who have made our condition appear to be something other than what it actually is.  False civilizations, cultures and religions, as well as ideas, such as an “evolutionary line”, have been artificially planted on Earth and in the minds of the inmates to create the illusion that we are “native inhabitants” of this planet, along with the indigenous animals in the “zoological prison”.  No evidence exists to demonstrate this to be true, regardless of how hard “scientists” try to piece together bits of completely unrelated information to form an argument in favor of it.

Furthermore, this entire sector of the universe is currently being invaded, and will be “assimilated”, over the next few thousand years, into the civilization known as “The Domain”, who have already conquered the “Old Empire” planets from which we were expelled.  And, apparently, The Domain is not any more interested in us, than you and I would be interested in visiting the inmates of a high-security prison or insane asylum.

One of the many keys that keep the gates of our prison locked is that this entire “reality”, compared to the “reality” we commonly agree upon, is too “unbelievable”.  Very few believe it, or confront it.  Why would anyone even want to try?  Yet the majority of Earth inhabitants accept, as fact, that there is a “heaven” which not one person has very visited and returned with proof.  We are told by priests and politicians to accept their pie-in-the-sky promises as a matter of “faith”, only to be betrayed lifetime after lifetime throughout all of history.  No only that, we’re supposed to pay them for the privilege of believing what we can’t see, and what they can’t prove!  Somebody’s crazy here.

Isn’t it about time we started asked some questions that are really relevant?  Very few people question what they are told to think by priests and politicians, so a “false reality” continues to be hidden right in front of our faces.  It is much easier to deny any responsibility for one’s own life, freedom, intelligence and integrity, and blame all of our problems on the gods, or anyone other than ourselves.  As a result of this bizarre set of conditions, we live in a world full of death, turmoil, destruction, criminality and perpetual pain mixed with kindness, hope, beauty, wisdom, technical know-how, ambition and spiritual self-awareness shrouded in mystery.

What can we gain from this information?  Is it of any real value to us?  What can we do that will make a fundamental difference in our situation?  Let’s begin by asking ourselves this question:  who are we, really? Airl says we are all “IS-BEs” who have had the memory of our true identities erased in order to keep us captive.  The last thing our captors want us to do is to remember who we are, where we came from, and who sent us here.  I suggest that these are the very first questions we need to ask.  After all, if we knew the answers to these questions, maybe we could remember how to escape from this place.

I, for one, am not content with things as they are.  How about you?
