Between this heavy stuff floating around about NASA guy Edgar Mitchell and now today, Clark C. McClelland. (No link, because of weird interference, but google his name and take your chances) I’ve got aliens on the brain! As Bela Lugosi once put it in GLEN OR GLENDA: “Beware… take… care.”
Why is this all coming out now? Is today really the anniversary of the Apollo moon landing? Is it all because of the approach of 2012, and the ensuing intra-d.imensional rift? Is it just more governmental disinformation with little dabs of truth in for the gradual “acclimation?”
The answer as always lies in CINEMA! We can see it in PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND and all the other films that unconsciously illustrate a key concept in human behavior – the “you can’t handle the truth” complex.
In my Acidemic article on the Spielberg War of the Worlds remake and “Inherited Immaturity” you can glean my slippery slope of reasoning why the truth is hidden (to those who would not see, etc.:
“in the face of an alien presence they (Dreyfus’s Roy and other hysterical witnesses like him) are unable to keep it together, unable to remain calm and act the role of the father. Instead, they act like children and go running around waving their hands and whooping and hollering. In Lacanian terminology, they have abandoned their stake as the absolute signifier; the “keeper of the law,” or “He Who Pretends to Know.” Though biological fathers, they have not accepted the social castration that must come before one can embody the Father signifier.
“In Close Encounters there still is such a signifier, Claude Lacombe (Francois Truffaut)… No one in the inner group surrounding Claude Lacombe stammers and yelps and runs bug-eyed around the room at the thought of what they are dealing with. They have no idea what they’re doing, but they assume an air of professional resolve and easygoing certainty and authority; they’re just folks doing their job like comsumate professionals, lost in the zen-like active contemplation of their individual assignments. ”
Watch these films with an open eye and ear. Learn to believe in fiction as possible truth and vice versa; learn to truly believe in things you find unbelievable, no matter what they are. Be a smooth Truffaut rather than a hysterical Dreyfuss. Try to “pretend to know” while maintaining a surface level nonchalance and certainty, and the men in black will come to you and explain everything while you sleep. You will begin not just to read Rinpoche and go, “Sure..Nothing is real” but to feel it and be freed by it… all it will cost is your soul!
It’s only when you can move past that outmoded set of opposites – truth or illusion; fact or fiction– that you can be free enough to begin to wrap your frightened head around the concept of believing “fully” in aliens, or even the baby Jesus! Accept him now! Or better yet, go netflix THE MIST or John Carpenter’s IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS! Haha! Don’t fight the freedom that your sheepish brethren dismiss as “insanity.” Fiction precedes fact. The force was never with you, Luke. you were adopted!
