Who's Disclosure is Disclosure?

Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:16 am by Cyrellys

The narrative war is in full swing. When there's a 100 different competing narratives, how is it possible to discern a disclosure?

Is it akin to which truth is Truth?

First topic message reminder :

I’m attempting to start a new thread 🧵.......

The previous attempt.....  the ‘Bj-Gz’ thread.... can no longer be posted to, for some unknown reason...... only the existing posts can be edited.

Perhaps this was a cosmic glitch...... called stop 🛑 the press.... while we consider the following possible flaw in the BPWH......

1440.........

Golly, hobbit,

You just took the words right out of my mouth.........

Yes, our only practical option is to head inside.......

The only problem is that it’s probably not a good idea to try blast our way in, as we are wont to do with respect to outer space.  

So, maybe hobbit knows the ‘open sesame’.......

We do have a written record of Admiral Byrd witnessing an open portal during his flight to the South Pole.  foot 🦶, of course, has access to those records........ and, who knows, whether to the portal, itself?

If portals there be, there would be a great proclivity to attempt to exploit them as providing one advantage or another over those of us lacking access.  

I give some credence to the assertion that portal access can be blocked from the other side.  

Whoever might be over there is likely to also make use of existing institutions on this side, for limiting access.  


1600........

Rumor has it that the US has some sort of preferred nation status.  

There would need to be an existing intelligence infrastructure to help provide  camouflage.  Atomic secrecy would have provided a logical rationale.  

Why not just throw the doors open?

At the very least, you might have some sort of PA system to announce some sort of exodus plan.  

Such a PA system is already in place, especially via the various prophetic traditions.

Certainly, the ufo phenomenon does keep large numbers of us on the lookout for some off planet excursions opportunities.  

Hollywood is hardly oblivious to our proclivities in that regard.  

More often than not, Hollywood is likely to exploit our fears of the paranormal...... horror can do wonders at the box office...... the Friday night frights...... gets your girlfriend to hold on tight.  


1720.......

If there is an exodus plan on our side, it would have started out as a closely held secret. Evidently, there has been no occasion to amend that policy.

https://exemplore.com/ufos-aliens/Hollow-Earth-Theory-and-Admiral-Byrds-Flight-to-Agartha

In a hole in the ground there lived an hobbit.

Instead of accepting the assumption based theory of gravity which newton invented think of layerings of opposite charged fields that have a double vortex shape around the poles, and they spiral in and out of the poles reversing at the heart centre location.

You the reader are sort of hollow with a thin casing about yourself, and to a hobbits senses you are created upon a cross of polarity and equator with opposite spin zones of the Northern and Southern hemisphere.

Strangely this led to steel ships having to be treated when they crossed the equator regions as it sent their compasses haywire, and this happened in the Philadelphia ship yards where very high voltage cables were wrapped around submarines to reset the magnetic signature of the steel, strange things happened to a certain submarine.

I consider this planet to be a living entity, with a shell like sort of skin with alternate directions of the so called gravity enabling perhaps many hobbits to be upside down relative to Your perspective of up and down.

A comfortable place is hobbit land.

I responded hobbit and deleted it.

I do that Wink

Propaganda is an evil distortion of reality and that is the world we live in is what I clarified.

Let’s say it, people are terrified so they have to cling to the color of their skin.

A muppet move.

I fucking hate racial discrimination and politics.

Bullshit.

I respect beauty and quality.

And that beauty and love and quality exists Dan makes my heart soar.

Fills me with fortitude and steels my spine against evil.

You cannot use the outside world and your own thoughts as the measure.

Your awareness is the measure.

One must stand in the storm and hold their light.

This has all tested my own mettle deeply.

I have seen the world clearer and clearer.

It’s a double edge sword cause u see how fucked up we are.

How far from center.

Come home, come back.

Don’t worry about the gold rush Dan.

You know one time I was in field in my mind and I heard my mother calling from the porch, dinner is ready, come on home.

Like an image from the 30s on the prairie.

Then after the meal I sat on the porch rocking and having a chat.

Coming home is like that.

I imagine dying is like that too.

Just coming home.

We are not alone, given the nature of consciousness we feel alone sometimes.

When I touch my inner mind, I don’t feel alone.

There is an order, even in chaos.

Life is life.

Protect it and respect it.

They are missing this.

Sighhhh

I’m reading John Lilly’s account of his deep explorations.

The Deep Self: Consciousness... https://www.amazon.com/dp/0895561166?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

What a genius.

I’m jealous.

He wrote an essay at 16 ‘What is Reality?’

If I’m going to be alive, having Einstein’s or John’s intelligence wouldn’t be bad Wink

I needed to talk to someone who has been much deeper than I have.

Infinities within infinities.

See the depths call to you.

The bat phone has been ringing off the hook.

I also have been studying John Nash’s life.

Before he died he said he saw Einstein had only approximated things, the clearer picture of space time was much more complicated.

Try to follow this and btw, I love the presenter.



I’m going to be setting an isolation tank up for myself to explore further.

People think you meditate to relax, omg.

That is gateway to the underworld!

To the depths.

If you don’t know what to do, dive into yourself and you will show yourself what to do.

Whatever uses us as muppets on earth meets you in the depths.

You let the depths bring up what is needed in your ur life.

We are much smarter than we know.

You know the heart has a little brain?

Just discovered, on the top.

The ancients lived with an awareness of the super sensible.

I can’t talk about that, no one can.

It’s beyond sense.
I believe we are caretakers of cosmos due to our awareness, not it’s master.

The experience of our current world and our inner mind can only happen in mind.

What can there be with no biological mind to meet in?

It does more and more seem the outer exists as an expression or emanation of the inner.

I don’t know Dan, one can only press on and stay open.

Watch the signs and interpret the bones thrown.

Chick 🐥 is gonna drag Chivo 🐐 into the best possible world....... kicking and snorting.    

Is this propaganda?  

If there is no knowable truth, then every utterance is propaganda, just by definition.  

And when you think about it for five minutes, you realize that, if there is any truth, there is only one shape that it can take.......

It can only take an interpersonal shape.  When you know that, you know everything there is to know.  

Everything else is just gilding the lily.

I’m selling the Self with my words, sure.

We are all just opinions and perspectives though.

Truth is lived, not spoken Mr. spokesman.

That’s how I beat the propaganda and brain washing.

One with so many words as you, must back it up with profound deep action.

I believe you are out of your depth with me.

I can push someone into the water, I can’t make them dive.

You want to connect, you must go deep ;l)

An artist just arts.

The words and actions of ones of the deep have a power unto themselves.

I post all over twitter #LOVEWINS

And I say that to you too.

Jack has been pushing all sorts of GOP propaganda on twitter, I love to taunt him.

I told him today, hmm, Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself. LOVEWINS

He is such a moron.

That’s how I taunt evil on twitter.

I ask them how they are doing with loving their neighbor as themselves.

They hate that.

Shuts every stupid argument they have down.

Evil propaganda dies near the smelly goat.

The deep is not liberal, idealistic or republican.

We don’t remember, but we are a Fellowship of Humans.

We all have the same basic interests, the rest is simply little children demanding candy.

There are mature ones who walk the earth thankfully, they have not all abandoned them yet.

I will not abandon love either.

Love hasn’t abandoned me, least i can do in return.

Very nice, Chivo,

But how do we know that it’s not just propaganda?

How do we know that love wins?  

How do we know that the depths of the psyche are anything more than the ravings of drug addled lunatics?

The Darwinians tell persuasive stories about the evolution of the mind.  

Darwinism is very well oiled machine, completely dominating academia.  And, yes, it has mountains of evidence to back it up.  

But, yes, there are many holes in the theory.

But, strategically, I doubt that this war will be one with hand to hand combat in the academic trenches. The

There has to be a vision......... a positive vision.

It will not be enough just say that Darwinism holds no hope for our future.

LOVE WINS

Patience

Compassion

Kindness

Argue the others point

Works for me.

Teasing is kindness of a kind if you want the best outcome.

I could go on.

It is clear how best to live.

Do you want to be shot, or poisoned or lynched or hated or beat down or ignored or manipulated?

No, most folks just want a good life.

No one can give you that but yourself.

People are ignorant of themselves.

So we can demonstrate that for them.

Chivo,

Wonderful, but where is the vision?  

Where is the good news for the multitude?

We have a global societal problem....... a problem that has been with us for aeons.  

What is different, now, that can initiate a mass persuasion?  

You have generally been very pessimistic on the forum.  

From what new direction comes your optimism?  

To what set of circumstances do we owe that this might be the best possible world?  

Is Nature blind and indifferent to this pageant?

It seems that you expect to get something for nothing.  

Might not the advent of the internet have any bearing on human possibilities?  

You seem to perceive some sort of human potential?  

Might this potential not dwell in the psyche?  

Why are you unable to take a cue from Jung and Lilly that there might be an interpersonal dimension, especially in the depths of our psyche?  

To a great extent you are toeing the party line of Buddhism...... that salvation is ever only for the individual....... the great mass is permanently stuck to the wheel of samsara.  

The mystical tradition is only meant for the mystical 0.001% of us, who, with great solitary effort, are able to break free from the daily grind.  

At least the Buddhist tradition is not caste bound like the Hindu counterpart.  That is no mean accomplishment.  


2000.........

Buddhism is much more involved with the individual psyche than is any other tradition....... but the social dimension is almost entirely lacking.

I find it hard to believe that this almost surgical separation of the mystical and prophetic traditions was not also written in the stars ✨.

The potentially explosive 🧨 combination of these two traditions is just waiting patiently for us to bring down the curtain....... on our sojourn into the Wilderness.  

Every political establishmentarian who has any clue about the future, is having nightmares about this apocalyptic eventuality.  

These establishmentarians were praying 🙏 for the goat 🐐 to take out the chick 🐥.  Is the goat finally going to let down this praetorian guard?  

For 6,000 years, God, has been on the side of the Coverup.  

Is God going to suddenly stand aside and allow the chick 🐥 to blow 🧨 the coverup... sky 🌌 high?  

Is the goat 🐐 going to stand by?

My vision is golden Dan.

I see it right here.

I’m not exaggerating or playing around.

Do you really know what final participation is Dan?

I don’t know what else to tell you.

It just becomes obvious.

No gods.

No fortune.

No fate.

Just us here.

Every sage in history said love your life.

I don’t know why else to say.

Mmmmm mmmmmmm good, can I have some more?!

My vision for the world?

WISE UP

It’s not going to stop until we WISE UP and LISTEN!

Whatever we think we need, give it up.

The deep has spoken this so many times we are deaf.



We all have love to give, we just don’t know where to put it.

And I have never been pessimistic about anything but our ignorance.

It can end.

We can wise up.

You just don’t get the ole fat smelly goat Dan.

You spend your time with assassins and I spend my time with the pack and the flowers and my love.

Let people decide then who speaks from the heart here.

My heart always wants the best.

We dive into nothing grounded here.
And until you spent some tome with Lilly don’t pretend to speak for him.

Persons have to reveal themselves to other persons.

He was isolated much of his life to his regret.

And at the end of all his crazy work.

He said, you don’t get lost in the infinities.

Just come home and enjoy it.

Nothing you think you know about a person is true.

Friendship and trust must be forged.

That’s pretty interpersonal.

Why did I have to meet such a confused 🐔

How many true friends do you have dan you trust?

Not many, same for me, but what if the world lived in that trust?

Oh boy, that would be something.

I always offer my hand in friendship.

And I have forged true friendships.

Not so isolated after all now Wink

“Friendship is unnecessary,” C.S. Lewis wrote, “like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself… it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”

Don’t you know what is valuable in life Dan?

No, you never speak personally about what you value.

That’s what moves people.

Being vulnerable and honest and strong and weak.

That is maybe the biggest part of living your best life.

To be truly be seen and known as much as one can be is nirvana.

Not blissed out empty solo cosmic orgasm.

Do you hear me.

I’m not a nihilist or a fucking Buddhist.

I killed them all, all the imposters and deceivers and liars.

I’m a god damn human being!

Talk about life here on the ground grand pa 🐥

Stop dreaming about the sky or don’t.

If u don’t, you missed life.

Sorry, I set you up to say this.

Listen to Seneca on friendship.

“If you consider any man a friend whom you do not trust as you trust yourself, you are mightily mistaken and you do not sufficiently understand what true friendship means… When friendship is settled, you must trust; before friendship is formed, you must pass judgment. Those persons indeed put last first and confound their duties, who … judge a man after they have made him their friend, instead of making him their friend after they have judged him. Ponder for a long time whether you shall admit a given person to your friendship; but when you have decided to admit him, welcome him with all your heart and soul. Speak as boldly with him as with yourself… Regard him as loyal and you will make him loyal.”

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/jun/05/war-for-eternity-benjamin-r-teitelbaum-starstruck-steve-bannon-dugin-putin-trump

Traditionalism is bullshit but Bannon has bought in and colluded with Russia, who are all in.

His answer to the post modernism.

He could care less about consciousness, he just wants his way.

Like every despot and the rats behind them.

Hey, white loves white.

He pulls trumps strings and he is insane.

Hmmmmm

Honestly, I don’t like these toxic rich insane fuckers.

Bannon prob works for some govt agency.

So there’s a vision for you Dan, maybe Bannon is your man.

You like his view?

You want Bannon and Russia leading an evil racist populist white movement?

Sure, why not.

Mmmmmm, so so good, may I have some more?

You and Ron can’t touch Bannon. You are all prob working together anyway Wink

Bannon and brain dead heartless trump are dead wrong about everything, accept how stupid America is.

Too bad u guys don’t know how to play trumpet.

But, this is the shitty fucked up world we live in that your generation made for us.

Oh well, you couldn’t clean up your messes.

But you wouldn’t know if you didn’t watch tv.

I’m happy in my little garden...for now.

And despite the world order, they can’t touch us.

We have to accept insane religious loonies with the good ones I guess.

Education and wisdom are the only way to beat them.

See, I’m just pessimistic about the political loonies and religious insanity, hehe.

I’m all in for human beings.

Traditionalism has no use for persons.

Traditionalists are obscurantists...... mystics.  

I’m guessing that my dad was one, but take away religion.  

Note that both Steve and Dan Sr come out of HBS.

If my dad had a hero, it might well be Churchill.  

He was certainly not a materialist.  Neither is Steve.

His would have been the great man theory of history, which, admittedly has some overlap with personalism.

The Traditionalist vision of a perennial wisdom is not based on mystical experiences, but on metaphysical intuitions. It is "intuited directly through divine intellect." This divine intellect is different from reason, and makes it possible to discern "the sacred unity of reality that is attested in all authentic esoteric expressions of tradition"; it is "the presence of divinity within each human waiting to be uncovered."
Here there is a lot overlap, obviously.  

Portals...... channels to the divine..... would play a role..... secret societies, etc.......

There is certainly an element of gnosticism.  

This is what you would be stuck with, prior to Revelation.  

There would be a strong adventist element...... anticipation..... amongst the true believers.  

Dan Sr was mainly a pessimist, however...... how to slow down the inevitable deterioration.  My dad would not be standing out on the hill, in anticipation, like my Montana sister.

Here is Schuon......
The key to the eternal sophia is pure intellection or in other words metaphysical discernment. To "discern" is to "separate": to separate the Real and the illusory, the Absolute and the contingent, the Necessary and the possible, Atma and Maya. Accompanying discernment, by way of complement and operatively, is concentration, which unites: this means becoming fully aware — from the starting point of earthly and human Maya — of Atma, which is both absolute and infinite.
With the understanding that Atma/Brahman/Buddha nature is at the core of every personal being.

This core is often, initially apprehended as an abyss, in the dark night of the soul.  

What hill is Steve standing on?  What MoAPS does he anticipate?  


0740z.......

I suspect that an increasing number of folks realize that we’re not going back to business as usual.  

Sorry, ‘bout that......

Interesting Dan.

I fell into that perennial mystical confusion.

Now isn’t this ironic, “Leibniz gave the name of the Perennial Philosophy to this theme.”

I read Guenon and others.

It just started to taste bad.

And I dug in more and saw what cults of personality grew around it’s leaders.

It’s a fog of ancient symbols.

Mysticism is fear based ultimately I feel.

The fog clears if yuh don’t get swept away in the rapids of thought.

Drugs seemed to convince Huxley this was the truth.

I think it very unwise to draw certainties from drug induced experiences.

I was so overwhelmed by the drug experience it seemed maybe the perennial philosophy mirrored my drug experience deep symbols.

The drugs are not to learn the meaning of being, they assist with healing, can provide perspective.

But fools go looking for god or ultimate reality.

What I found was balance and responsibility for my actions.

No divine truths.

I became incredibly creative.

It is these incensed seekers causing so much confusion.

Mommy and Daddy issues.

Let go what you want I told myself.

I told myself I am enough.

Accept your life as it is and do your best to live with self integrity and compassion.

That was for me, spoken by me, to me.

Huxley and others thought mystical religion was the answer to confused religions.

Transcendence of personality and worldly affairs.

Transcendence?

Transcend what and go where?

What, now you speak for god?

We have an inner self reflective mirror that creates the personality as maybe a side effect.

That image can be transcended when one realizes there is an inner life, not just a relative sense life.

Yuh see ego is just an approximation of you, partly created by our time and culture.

To say ego is to abstract yourself with a symbol.

So what really is the personal and impersonal.

Just more clumsy symbols.

You aren’t a binary person or nothing.

You are this swirling awareness.

What words or symbols define you? DNA?

That’s just a map.

You show up and live the life in the body.

I used my active imagination is all to deconstruct life.

There can be an inner exploration that does not negate the person.

This is what I have tried, badly, to discuss with Dan.

There are no clear lines.

The pragmatists and stoics helped me most to ground myself in my life.

I’m not preaching transcendence, I simply suggest our inner experience is maybe the source of our actions and hide deep wounds that appear as monsters until you make peace with them. Value is forged through self reflection.

Can one not speak of their inner world and not be called impersonal?

We don’t really understand what we are seeing in there.

It should be studied holistically.

The old texts can’t be taken literally and we have to engage this in our time, in our own mind.

There are so many opinions and voices out there.

One must find their own voice.

I do not make claims as to what will happen.

I seek the real.

I seek to understand my thinking and my thinking about thinking.

I engage nature in being.

I don’t have neat definitions for these experiences.

Just breathe.

And relax.

And consider.

Doing the best I can Captain.

I will not take the bit or be boxed in.

I am a slippery smelly goat.

You cannot draw ultimate conclusions from intuition or thoughts or feelings.

We see darkly.

1130z........

The way Steve stares, you’d think he’d seen a ghost....... or was it a Ghost?


1430........

Again, we have Chivo/Eric to thank, this time for linking us to traditionalism.  A philosopher can never have too many isms.  

Postmodernism and traditionalism push back against modernism...... coming from very different, even opposing, angles.  

The former tends toward the anarchic...... the latter towards the monarchic.

The general confusion will certainly be exploited by demagogues.

Dan: Rumor has it that the US has some sort of preferred nation status.

That privilege has been rescinded due to violations of the founding fathers' secret compact with powers that be ;-)

Gary,

I may only have had in mind that, since the time of the Roswell and Arnold incidents, the US has frequently been associated with ufos in the popular mind.

But, yes, I’m also aware of stories about secret agreements, however I could not be more specific, off the top of my head.

Can you elaborate on the powers that be Gary?

All power on earth in my opinion is a lie, a corruption by the ones given stewardship over aspects of civilization.

We are caretakers not tyrants or owners of anything.

Blonde aliens from the poles doesn’t do it for me.

That’s the biggest conspiracy.

I recognize no authoritative power in the cosmos.

So who could ever bless America Smile

I like that Dan, good summary, anarchy and monarchy, guess what?

It’s ALL malarkey!

Can someone take away my self reflection now and put me back where they found me Wink

No one is ever going to find out how we came upon our mental machinery that gives us self reflection.

It annoys us maybe.

I agree with Bernardo, this mirror is the cause of suffering.

Learning to live with it and use it is my only concern.

I have no idea really why the anarchists and monarchists waste their time isting.

What is fun with philosophy is you really dive into new ideas and try them on in phases.

As one grapples with different systems it becomes clearer what is worth something and what can be discarded.

It is very fluid.

I’d say I have not arrived at the end, but I gather from many many self accounts, living your life connected where you are is the greatest philosophy of all.

Dan, just give me a pointer to sources discussing said agreements.

I agreed to nothing.

That pisses smelly 🐐 off.

2010........

Chivo,

I have no specific sources concerning the generally alleged coverup conspiracy.  Intimations of various sorts of conspiracies are endemic to the literature.  

The prototypical conspiracy allegations point back to Eisenhower’s alleged meeting with an alien......

There was some agreement to the effect that we would not interfere with them, if they would go about their business discretely.  In return, they would give us some access to their ‘technology’.

The subsequent extent of the abduction phenomenon was considered to be in breach of that agreement.  

It is not generally specified as to what, if any, recourse we might have had.  

I believe that there has been a coverup...... one that has been mutually agreed upon.  

However, the alien presence is only ancillary to the coverup.  

Mainly what is being withheld is the impending MoAPS.  

The MoAPS is of such a radical nature, that it is self-concealing.  


2100........

Back to traditionalism......

There is only a minimal overlap with personalism......

Divine truth is not alien to our personal intuition, but we would be very unlikely to stumble upon it, were it not revealed within each of the several traditional cultures.

In this context, modern culture is just an aberration...... brought on, perhaps, by personal greed.  

chick 🐥 begs to differ..... there are no aberrations in the best possible world.  Every last bit has been orchestrated..... especially including the science bit.  

The various traditions make no sense when removed from their historical context..... from the eschatological Metanarrative.  

The individual traditions make sense only holistically..... a holism that is reflected in the microcosmic mirror of every person.  

However, there must be an interpersonal collaboration to allow our metaphysical intuitions to shine through.  The discernment of truth is a collaborative, historical, not an institutional, effort.  

Institutions cannot keep up with the times, especially in the Endtimes.  

This is exactly where social mediation is essential.  

As material culture commences its death spiral, eg. Wuhan, the window for Disclosure is narrow...... the continued functioning of the global internet is essential.  

It’s not the body count of the virus 🦠 that is critical, rather it is the psychological impact...... it is our belated awakening from our slumber of materialism...... our awakening to our material vulnerability, and its impetus to look deeper...... and the timing is critical..... the sense that we exist on borrowed time.  


2200......

The gnosis that is embedded in the prophetic tradition segues smoothly into our scientific gnosis.

The limited nature of the scientific gnosis then leads us back to a rediscovery of our primordial transcendental gnosis. Wuhan is delivering us to that doorstep.

If the above scenario is in the right ballpark, the portals should simultaneously be emerging from their modern obscurity. The porosity of the ‘objective’ world will be manifesting.

Damn, I thought you were going to say that Dan.

Sometimes Dan I forget I’m talking to a bunch of 🛸  loonies.

I wouldn’t be scared or anything if it was true unless I was gonna be dinner.

Smelly goat is very tasty and spicy.

I’d give them indigestion.

Feeding on souls is a terrifying picture.

That’s why I don’t have one.

Ok ok, let’s say it happened.

That changes all of it, no?

They would rather riots on the streets than giving it to us straight?

Now would be a good time to say, whoa.

I can only assume evil muppets won’t let it stop.

But if you’re myths have some weight, it doesn’t matter what we do, does it?

That sucks.

Gary wants to say the TPTB are lizards 🦎 so bad I bet, Bahahaha.

Looney U has the lizard 🦎 angle covered I think.

Aaron and I are with the dude, the dude abides.

Things are feelin more plastic.

The world seems to be dematerializing, which is tough, but I think a good thing.
