MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Halloween for me has always been a time where I can watch some of my favorite B-horror and science fiction films. I had developed a collection of Hammer and Universal monster films which I find more fun to watch than some of the more violent slasher films that aren’t really horror films but shock films.
Most of these old horror films that deal with vampires and werewolves deal with the beastly nature of man.
However, there is a science fiction film that came out in 1956 that taps into man’s bestial nature and that is the film, Forbidden Planet.
The show’s theme actually is a predecessor to Star Trek as a United Planet spacecraft is on a mission to discover the fate of a party of scientists who, twenty years previously, had reached the planet, Altair 4.
The commander, John Adams (played by Leslie Nielson), ignores an enigmatic warning not to land on the planet and discovers two survivors, Dr. Edward Morbius and his daughter, Altara. They control a remarkably sophisticated robot, Robbie, who is technologically far in advance of human robotics at the time. Morbius explains that the other members of his expedition had been mysteriously killed by an unseen but terrible force and that only he and his wife and daughter had survived. His wife later died naturally.
Altair 4 had once been the home of a powerful and intelligent ‘race’ which called itself the Krell. They had disappeared but had left behind a gigantic, fully-functioning and self-regulating underground complex driven by a nuclear power source of almost infinite capacity.
Using his skills as a linguist, Morbius had deciphered some Krell writings and, from him, Commander Adams and ship physician (Doc Ostro) learn some of the history of these ancient people.
Ethically as well as technologically, they were a million years ahead of humankind. For in unlocking the mysteries of nature they had conquered even their baser selves. And, when in the course of eons, they had abolished sickness and insanity and crime and all injustice, they turned still with high benevolence, outward towards space.
The Krell had constructed a paradise on Earth, a new world that resembled the Garden of Eden. But then, seemingly on the threshold of some supreme accomplishment, which was to have crowned their entire history, this all-but divine race perished in a single night.
Since that sudden moment of destruction, two thousand centuries passed undisturbed, until Morbius discovered their underground complex. Morbius demonstrates a mental machine he calls a Krell ‘plastic educator’ used ‘to condition and test their young’. He had used this machine, soon after his arrival, to boost his brainpower, though he was still no match for the Krell.
By linking the machine to the electromagnetic waves of his brain they were able to create what they wanted but what they didn’t count on was how negative energy in the mind the more bestial part of the mind somehow corrupted the interface and created a monster known as the Monster from the Id.
The Krell had been applying their entire racial energies to a new project, one which they actually seemed to hope would somehow free them once and for all from any dependence on physical instrumentality.’ They had been experimenting with mental telepathy. By combining their minds with their infinite power source, they had been attempting to create physical matter through the actions of the mind alone. They were planning the ultimate demonstration of mind over matter.
The mind is a powerful thing and when it is applied for good, there are remarkable results but the powers of the mind have their darker side and this fact makes us wonder if we are basically predators that have been conditioned over time to overcome our basic natures.
While doing research for the show I did about vampires, I was reading an alleged 17th, century grimoire that attempted to explain how vampires are able to cripple their victims with mesmerism.
Mesmerism originated with Franz Anton Mesmer a German physician who postulated the theory of natural energetic transference, which occurs in all animate and inanimate objects.
The term he used for this energy was “animal magnetism”. Mesmer considered all human illness a breakdown in the balance and flow of this magnetic force.
When nature failed to resolve this blockage spontaneously, “mesmerism” could be used to remedy the problem. Mesmerism attracted practitioners and audiences, with its peak between 1780 and 1850. The technique usually involved some social role-playing where the mesmerizer would make suggestions to his clients who eventually became absolutely “mesmerized” by him in some sort of hypnosis-like trance. Mesmer used his extraordinary powers of suggestion to send people into frenzied convulsions, or sleeplike trances. It was all very ceremonious and dramatic, attracting audiences to observe and participate.
Vampire mesmerism refers to the ability of a vampire to manipulate or alter the mental, physical and/or emotional faculties of a human being, or in some cases, another supernatural creature.
This alteration or manipulation can also be found in Bram Stoker’s and Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, as Jonathan Harker is diagnosed with debilitating ‘brain fever’ in response to his experience in the castle. This fever manifests itself as a physical weakness when Harker sees the Count on the London streets.
Mesmerism obscures boundaries between the human and non-human. It can be said that the process includes what can be called mind transference or on a quantum level dimensional transmission.
It can be seen as a meta walk or a sleepwalk through the collective unconscious, somewhat controlled by someone who offers the journey.
When reading through ancient literature, we find there have been various nuggets of wisdom that have been written with the intention of permanently raising the consciousness level of humanity. There have been accounts of shamans, wizards, and prophets that have over time, developed rituals and spells which have fine-tuned or altered our level of perception.
There have been accounts where certain individuals have been given glimpses of these altered perceptions and many who have witnessed the reality of dimensional maneuvering have indicated there are worlds within worlds and different doors of perception that we must acknowledge in order to gain true enlightenment.
William Blake once said, “If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern.”
Temporary glimpses of these ‘altered perceptions’ have fascinated humankind for millennia, stretching as far back as when our human ancestors were cave dwellers.
From the time mankind first crawled out of its caves, there have been moments where he has caught a glimpse of other realms, and other dimensions.
Over time there have been initiates of the secret schools that have tried to harness what is known as psionics.
Psionics was a proposed discipline that applied principles of engineering to the study and employment of paranormal, or psychic, phenomena, such as telepathy and psychokinesis.
Over 200 years ago the power was considered part of the evil of things – related to sorcerers, witches, and vampires.
In the grimoire entitled, the Vampire Codex, we read that we are neither wholly born nor wholly made what we are. The choice for us to become was made long ago. From that time onward, we have been reborn again and again, carrying within us in every lifetime the seed of what we are.
Sometimes we forget ourselves and wander our lives like sleepwalkers, only half-aware of our true natures. Yet sleeping or awakened, we are born with the potential for transformation.
Awakening is a process of expanded awareness. Anyone with gifts and talents of a subtle nature undergoes an awakening in their life. This is when they come into their own; finally accepting what has been latent within them since birth. For us, the process can be traumatic, as the existence we awaken to opens us up to a host of strange thoughts, sensations, and experiences that lie outside the limits accepted even by others awakened.
Awakening is the alchemical forge in which we are transformed from dross to spiritual gold. It is the recalling of a part of our selves that has become clouded over time. It is becoming more than the little self of this lifetime, grasping the totality of who we were and who we are to be – our Essential Self.
We do not know if the mind is limitless and we have learned that in old age we begin to lose memory and our perception of time.
If our model for perceiving our environment and time is limited or if we happen to perceive something while in crisis or after a traumatic experience, we run the obvious risk of missing important information that may be crucial for our well-being and survival; or conversely of hallucinating imaginary information that may be misleading or hurtful.
The mind does not necessarily follow facts.
Doubt isn’t always resolved in the face of facts for even the most enlightened among us, however credible and convincing those facts might be.
As a result of the well-documented confirmation bias, we tend to undervalue evidence that contradicts our beliefs and overvalue evidence that confirms them. We filter out inconvenient truths and arguments on the opposing side. As a result, our opinions solidify, and it becomes increasingly harder to disrupt established patterns of thinking.
We believe in alternative facts if they support our pre-existing beliefs.
Now, we are witnessing the age where beliefs are now being intertwined with your identity no matter if they are completely unaware of facts.
People are worried that if they have their minds changed they are going to lose a vital part of their identity.
Humans operate on different frequencies. If someone disagrees with you, it’s not because they’re wrong, and you’re right. It’s because they believe something that you don’t believe.
It is also unfortunate that disagreements now break up friendships – create viciousness and trolling. Especially when it comes to political arguments that are certainly subjective but again that indicates that unfortunately, people have intertwined their political views with their identity which again is counter-intuitive.
We live in a perpetual echo chamber. We friend people like us on Facebook. We follow people like us on Twitter. We read the news outlets that are on the same political frequency as us.
This means our opinions aren’t being stress-tested nearly as frequently as they should.
It is harder to accept the truth than it is to fall on convenient opinions that change like stained underwear.
The mind is far more complex than we once thought and in many cases, we are able to somehow enhance our abilities to merge mentally with one another in many ways.
The merging process can only made if we clear away a lot of the noise that comes with feeding on data that does nothing to enhance our knowledge – myopic and rigid thinking is detrimental to opening the channels of the mind that give us the ability to open doors to new ideas and perhaps the feelings and thoughts of others around us.
Some may say that it is a stretch, but if it is so farfetched then why do governments invest in mind expansion and mind control exercises to control outcomes of possible futures and manipulate the past in the murky areas of the timeline.
The Stargate Project was the code name for a secret U.S. Army unit established in 1978 at Fort Meade, Maryland, by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and SRI International (a California contractor) to investigate the potential for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications. The Project and its precursors and sister projects went by various code names — GONDOLA WISH, GRILL FLAME, CENTER LANE, SUN STREAK, SCANATE — until 1991 when they were consolidated and rechristened as “Stargate Project.”
A recently declassified document that was unearthed through the Freedom of Information Act, suggests that the Chinese government has conducted massive-scale studies on superhuman powers like telepathy, psychokinesis, approbation, aerokinesis, clairsentience, clairaudience, and more. The US Central Intelligence Agency was appraised of these studies and could have conducted similar investigations, all while keeping the results hidden from the general public.
The document titled, “Chronology of Recent Interest in Exceptional Functions of The Human Body in the People’s Republic of China” can be found on the CIA’s website, and details studies which the Chinese government and other agencies funded to test thousands of children to see if they had superhuman abilities. The government was so interested in the possibility of these superhuman individuals, that hundreds of testing centers were set up across China. There are numerous studies that are publicly available, confirming this. Princeton scientists have found that telekinesis or psychokinesis is very real.
Dr. Bem, a social psychologist at Cornell University, has conducted a series of experiments that are published in one of the most prestigious psychology journals (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology).
Across nine experiments, Bem examined the idea that our brain has the ability to not only reflect on past experiences but also anticipate future experiences. This ability for the brain to “see into the future” is often referred to as, PSI phenomena.
He used well-established, standard scientific methods to study this phenomenon and found that we are all equipped with the ability to see into the future. It seems some of us have just developed this ability, either with practice, or through the gift of birth, to a more advanced degree.
If this is indeed true, then hundreds of thousands of children (and adults) could easily manipulate matter with the frequency of their thoughts.
The fact that China’s government was involved in the study of parapsychology and that the CIA deemed it too dangerous to reveal to the public (while the US government was conducting its own studies at Montauk, and Fort Meade is very telling and may explain why sometimes people experience Déjà vu temporal blind spots or what is called, the Mandela Effect.
So the question is, are these skills being used against us?
Change is never easy; however, a common idea to rally around in mutual solidarity could be used to fight against this psychic warfare if it is being used to negatively hijack the future. It appears that we have lost our ability to plant seeds of unifying ideas for a future that we construct, not a future the technocracy has planted in us.
Nikola Tesla once said, “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”
We, humans, have evolved a rich repertoire of communication, from gestures to sophisticated languages. All of these forms of communication link otherwise separate individuals in such a way that they can share and express their singular experiences and work together collaboratively.
In a new study, technology replaces language as a means of communicating by directly linking the activity of human brains. Electrical activity from the brains of a pair of human subjects was transmitted to the brain of a third individual in the form of magnetic signals, which conveyed an instruction to perform a task in a particular manner. This study opens the door to extraordinary new means of human collaboration while, at the same time, blurring fundamental notions about individual identity and autonomy in disconcerting ways.
Direct brain-to-brain communication has been a subject of intense interest for many years, driven by motives as diverse as futurist enthusiasm and military exigency.
In his book, Beyond Boundaries, one of the leaders in the field, Miguel Nicolelis, described the merging of human brain activity as the future of humanity, the next stage in our species’ evolution. (Nicolelis serves on Scientific American’s board of advisers.) He has already conducted a study in which he linked together the brains of several rats using complex implanted electrodes known as brain-to-brain interfaces.
Nicolelis and his co-authors described this achievement as the first “organic computer” with living brains tethered together as if they were so many microprocessors. The animals in this network learned to synchronize the electrical activity of their nerve cells to the same extent as those in a single brain. The networked brains were tested for things such as their ability to discriminate between two different patterns of electrical stimuli, and they routinely outperformed individual animals.
If networked rat brains are “smarter” than a single animal, imagine the capabilities of a biological supercomputer of networked human brains. Such a network could enable people to work across language barriers. It could provide those whose ability to communicate is impaired with a new means of doing so. Moreover, if the rat study is correct, networking human brains might enhance performance. Could such a network be a faster, more efficient and smarter way of working together?
Beyond that of the interface, could one mind synch up with another mind using psionics as a tool that could actually help in reading minds in a controlled experiment?
The investigators in the new paper point out that it is the first report in which the brains of multiple humans have been linked in a completely noninvasive manner. They claim that the number of individuals whose brains could be networked is essentially unlimited. Yet the information being conveyed is currently very simple: a yes-or-no binary instruction.
The authors propose that information transfer using noninvasive approaches could be improved by simultaneously imaging brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in order to increase the information a sender could transmit. But fMRI is not a simple procedure, and it would expand the complexity of an already extraordinarily complex approach to sharing information.
Even though the methods used here are noninvasive and therefore appear far less ominous than if a DARPA neural interface had been used, the technology still raises ethical concerns, particularly because the associated technologies are advancing so rapidly. For example, could some future embodiment of a brain-to-brain network enable a sender to have a coercive effect on a receiver, altering the latter’s sense of agency? Could a brain recording from a sender contain information that might someday be extracted and infringe on that person’s privacy? Could these efforts, at some point, compromise an individual’s sense of personhood?
The human mind can also be pushed to its limits and this is where psychological warfare and psychic espionage have been known to push the mind into hyper-reality and sensory overload.
This act of projecting mind-reading is known as “remote viewing” something that again is said to be a normal function of the human brain, however, most people need to groom that part of consciousness in order to use their intuitive nature to benefit their lives.
However, it seems to have the potential to be used as a tool for psychic warfare.
Now that the brain interface is no longer a science fiction oddity – governments will most certainly find a way to use it in some nefarious way. It can be surmised that these remote viewing and heavy psi programs are still underway and that psychic spies are being used for all sorts of missions.
There are many people who see this and chuckle that the government is once again throwing money down the drain. However, keeping the master magicians and psychics near the government has been a common practice from the beginning.
The paradigm has thus been shattered and a new form of mental training can have the mind do many great and wondrous things that can be indistinguishable from magic.
