Adventures With Cassiopaea

Another way of putting it is: if you notice the things that are wrong with our reality, that means you view the world around you as "cold, cruel and hostile," which then means that you just aren't seeing objectively! You are not giving proper value to this marvelous world in which we live! You aren't fully appreciating the wars and plagues and disasters and man's inhumanity to man properly! You are not giving the proper spin on cosmic catastrophes, military onslaughts, social injustice, personal and familial misfortunes, and a host of assaults too numerous to list.

In short, if you are not living in the warm and fuzzy illusion that the Control System wants you to erect as your "personal myth," or at least pretending that you do, then you are clearly deficient and incapable of perceiving meaning to life. Because, note that most important assumption in the study cited above: those who are "alienated" are being judged about their feelings as to "how meaningful life is." In other words, "how meaningful" is a quantitative judgment that is replacing the qualitative value of WHAT the meaning of life might be.

As the great Historian of Religion, Mircea Eliade pointed out, the study of history, through its various disciplines, offers a view of mankind that is almost insupportable. The rapacious movements of hungry tribes, invading and conquering and destroying in the darkness of prehistory; the barbarian invaders of the civilized world during medieval times; the bloodbaths of the crusades of Catholic Europe against the "infidels" of the Middle East; the stalking "noonday terror" of the Inquisition where martyrs quenched the flames with their blood; and the raging holocaust of modern genocide. Wars, famine, pestilence; all produce an intolerable sense of indefensibility against what Mircea Eliade calls the Terror of History.

When man contemplates history, AS IT IS, he is forced to realize that he is in the iron grip of an existence that seems to have no real care or concern for his pain and suffering. Over and over again, the same sufferings fall upon mankind multiplied millions upon millions of times over millennia. The totality of human suffering is a dreadful thing. I could write until the end of the world using oceans of ink and forests of paper, and never fully convey this terrible condition in which mankind finds his existence.

The beast of arbitrary calamity has always been with us. For as long as human hearts have pumped hot blood through their too-fragile bodies and glowed with the inexpressible sweetness of life and yearning for all that is good and right and loving, the sneering, stalking, drooling and scheming beast of "real life" has licked its lips in anticipation of its next feast of terror and suffering. Since the beginning of time, this mystery of the estate of man, this Curse of Cain has existed. And, since the Ancient of Days, the cry has been: "My punishment is greater than I can bear!"

But if you find yourself saying this, you are "alienated," antisocial, and incapable of finding any meaning in life. You are just simply not "with the program," according to the SETI study cited above.

One of the authorities trotted out is astronomer Frank Drake, the Father of SETI. Drake argues that ET will very likely be altruistic, rather than malevolent because if extraterrestrials are hostile, then their civilizations won't last very long, and we're unlikely to make contact with them. Only extraterrestrials with a long-lasting, stable society will be around long enough to be detected by our SETI programs.

Unfortunately, Drake's views are those of an astronomer who must not have read much history or many anthropological studies about what really happens when a superior culture encounters an inferior one, or even why superior cultures begin to expand and spread out, and seek new lands to conquer and dominate. Drake probably forgot Hitler's idea of Lebensraum as well as the ancient archetypal story of the Trojan Horse. In short, Drake's hypothesis is all wet.

With that idea in mind, let's look at the questions that were asked of the participants in the SETI study as to how we ought to respond to the receiving of a signal from an extraterrestrial civilization.

ETs are probably looking for planets they can take over for themselves.
We should not reply to the message from ETs because they might be hostile.
ETs would probably look at humans like we are nothing more than animals that belong in their zoos.
Humans would probably not be able to understand the message from ETs because humans and ETs are just too different.
If we reply to the message from ETs, they might come to Earth and take over our world.
We should not believe what the message says, because the ETs may be lying.
ETs would probably want to make humans their slaves.
The message from ETs may contain a hidden message that could be harmful to humans.

Aside from the fact that nearly all of the above statements are redundancies, most of them are based on the idea of suspecting that ETs might be liars. For some reason, that strikes me as peculiar. It's almost as though the issue that is really being tested is a person's gullibility index. Nevertheless, if a person has thought long and hard about History - AS IT IS - and has made some assessment about it based on the objective facts, then he may, indeed, extrapolate those facts into considerations of ET civilizations that may contact us. This then will lead him to the objective speculation that any ET civilization that goes out looking for "New Worlds to Conquer" does not have our best interests at heart!

The SETI study has told us: "The pattern is clear: people who feel alienated are much more likely to be concerned that ET has evil intentions."

You're darn skippy!

But the SETI study has attempted to establish that such an objective assessment is pathological. The SETI folks are suggesting that the relationship between "alienation" and the perception that ET might not be friendly is evidence of a "personal prejudice," as opposed to an objective perception of the world! The study suggests that alienation is a "personal bias," that is not "in synch" with reality. Reciprocally, this means that they are suggesting that our world is just hunky dory; that two billion people meeting their deaths in a century of wars and famines is just "the cost of doing business" in this reality.

The owners and publishers of these pages wish to state that the material presented here is the product of our research and experimentation in Superluminal Communication. We invite the reader to share in our seeking of Truth by reading with an Open, but skeptical mind. We do not encourage "devotee-ism" nor "True Belief." We DO encourage the seeking of Knowledge and Awareness in all fields of endeavor as the best way to be able to discern lies from truth. The one thing we can tell the reader is this: we work very hard, many hours a day, and have done so for many years, to discover the "bottom line" of our existence on Earth. It is our vocation, our quest, our job. We constantly seek to validate and/or refine what we understand to be either possible or probable or both. We do this in the sincere hope that all of mankind will benefit, if not now, then at some point in one of our probable futures.
