Adventures With Cassiopaea

Chapter 20

 


Most of our problems as a species come from an inability to agree on our conclusions which is generally based on a misinterpretation of the basic events of life. For this reason we are always fighting over symbolism and definitions, the very things that are supposed to help us understand each other better. It seems that the ability to see reality without any illusions is a very difficult perspective to acquire. It consists of viewing the world without the denial that plagues our understanding of basic events, as opposed to the illusory values imposed on it by society.

As we might suspect from the cited work of Robert Travis in the journal Social Indicators Research, entitled the Margins of Society Alienation Scale, society has a very dim view of alienation. The fact is, however, that where alienation occurs, feedback loops exist between the individual resistance to a system and the system's response. Overall this resistance is very costly for the system.

A good example of this are the varying persecutions which have been instituted to chase down relatively harmless people chosen as scapegoats for the cause. Any time one or another group is being labeled as "alienated," you can be sure that it is a smokescreen for other activities. And when there is smoke, there is usually a war; if there's a war, someone is making money churning out weapons or medical care or news or insurance against fear in another form.

The questions "what is an alienated person?" and "what is the philosophical significance of alienation" are two entirely different orders of questions, and a failure to recognize this fact breeds confusion. What is this thing that SETI is calling "alienation?" How does it come about? What is its constitution, origin and history? What is the importance of alienation?

First of all, we want to exclude what may be truly "pathological alienation," which expresses itself as destructive acts undertaken against the shortcomings of our culture. These destructive acts can include felonious behavior as well as self-destructive processes, including self-medicated escape into drugs and alcohol, magical thinking, etc.

Here, we are interested in alienation as a process of expanding the Reality Dictionary from the Juvenile Dictionary that defines our environment. Do we view reality as a Cartoon World where all the characters suffer all kinds of dreadful experiences which are instantly erased from view and memory in the next frame, or, have we acquired a more spiritually adult perception of the realities of life that tell us that when a huge boulder is dropped on the character, he will be crushed and will not reappear in the next frame without a wrinkle or a bruise. Are we living our lives as Comic Book Characters, or as Response-Able perceivers of a broader reality?

The answer to the first question: what is an alienated person amounts to an existential judgment. How a person becomes "alienated" can simply be a matter of historical fact. We can learn the facts of that person's life, and we can learn what that person thinks from what they say or write. Based on this information, we may decide that they are alienated because they have suffered trauma.

The answer to "what is the philosophical significance?" is a proposition of VALUE; in other words, a spiritual judgment. What alienation ultimately means in this sense can only be deduced in terms of the record of the inner experiences of the soul wrestling with the crises of fate.

Neither judgment can be deduced from the other! They proceed from different perspectives, and it is entirely arbitrary to add them together as the cited SETI study has done.

As a matter of fact, there are many people who have had "alien encounters" who do not qualify as "alienated." The individuals who tend to view the "alien reality" in a positive way, those who think that aliens are here to "help mankind," would naturally score very "positively" on the SETI test.

Kenneth Ring discovered that a large sample of people who reported Near-Death (NDE) experiences also tended to have had other, prior, "unusual experiences," including UFO sightings and/or abductions which were interpreted in a positive way. After their NDE, they generally reported a remarkable change very similar to a religious conversion. They also often reported the sudden acquisition of a new talent or interest. Ring tested his subjects in different ways, and most of them had high scores on what is called the dissociative personality scale. Such people are easily hypnotized and tend to daydream a lot. So, there does seem to be a direct connection between thinking that ET is "good" and dissociation.

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.
