"My interest in ETI [extraterrestrial intelligence] is prompted by the fact that I have been long concerned with the possibility of expanding man’s spiritual and intellectual potential. This interest stems from a lifetime of concern and support for innovative thinking in fields such as philosophy, holistic healing, science and spirituality. I have become convinced that we must fulfill more of our human potential if we are to cope with the increasing difficult problems which now challenge our quality of life and our very survival." - Laurance Rockefeller, as quoted by Grant Cameron [linked here].
In the summer of 1995, America's dashing new president, Bill Clinton, and First Lady, Hillary Clinton, were summoned to Wyoming to meet with Laurance Rockefeller. The subject? UFO disclosure. Laurance had been stirring up all kinds of trouble, poking his nose in places where he ought not, and even insinuating veiled threats if the government didn't come clean about Roswell.
Or, at least, that's the impression we've been given.
Respected UFO researcher Grant Cameron maintains a wealth of information at his website PresidentialUFO.com on this subject. He has methodically brought together documents and conversations which paint an ever evolving picture of government knowledge about, and interaction with, whatever is "out there." Cameron sat down with Dark Journalist recently and recounted the threads of his research in vivid detail. Near the end of his interview, Cameron made some very telling comments about consciousness that have a direct bearing on the subject of this blog series, Gnostic Politics [Part One is here]. More about that farther down the page.
As I listened to Cameron and host Daniel Liszt review the participation of Laurance Rockefeller in the so-called UFO disclosure initiative of 1993, during Clinton's first term in office, a voice in my brain was asking, "Isn't it just a bit ludicrous to believe that the government would have something that the mighty Rockefeller Family didn't already know about?"
For those of you who followed my Antarctica series, you might remember that I devoted an entire article [linked here] to the "Rockefeller Connection" as it relates to the exploration of that continent. In 1926, the Rockefellers financed Admiral Byrd's flight over the North Pole. In fact, one researcher quoted in that article said that Rockefeller was Byrd's "mentor and lifetime financial backer." Indeed, in the post-WWII era of Antarctic exploration, the Rockefeller Foundation became the model by which the government's National Science Foundation would be created. In 1997, the U.S. Navy began handing oversight of America's interests in Antarctica over to the Rockefeller-modeled NSF.
Is it just coincidence that the Rockefellers were making moves to take charge of Antarctica at the exact same time that brother Laurance was busy promulgating the "UFO disclosure" narrative up in Washington, D.C.? Let us not forget that it was Rockefeller's man, Admiral Byrd, who was one of the first men to spark public awareness of UFO's back in 1947 following the Antarctic failure of Operation Highjump.
But there's more.
The Global Mind Arrives in the 1990's
Let's think about what else was taking shape in the 1990's in the field of science and technology, that one huge revolution that has changed all of our lives: the arrival of the Internet and the World Wide Web.
In 1989, the first web site was launched at a place not immediately associated with web sites: CERN. This highly secretive European science project had been developing the Internet with collaboration from other participants, notably, America's own DARPA agency. One of America's most highly honored engineers, Dr. Vannevar Bush, is largely credited with creating the basis of HTML, the hypertext markup language that helped transform the "information superhighway" from just a bunch of text messaging forums into a graphical browsing powerhouse. Those of you who have followed the "UFO Disclosure" movement for the last 10 or 20 years may recall that Vannevar Bush's name always comes up in discussions about the "Majestic-12" documents and the exotic technologies that were "seeded" into America's military industrial complex. Raytheon is, after all, his company.
In fact, Dr. Vannevar Bush (no direct relation to the George Bush family, by the way), had written an essay as far back as 1945 entitled "As We May Think" that foreshadowed the arrival of the digital global mind that we see now being constructed before our eyes. This Wikipedia page [linked here] describes the essay:
"'As We May Think' is a 1945 essay by Vannevar Bush which has been described as visionary and influential, anticipating many aspects of information society. It was first published in The Atlantic in July 1945 and republished in an abridged version in September 1945—before and after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Bush expresses his concern for the direction of scientific efforts toward destruction, rather than understanding, and explicates a desire for a sort of collective memory machine with his concept of the memex that would make knowledge more accessible, believing that it would help fix these problems. Through this machine, Bush hoped to transform an information explosion into a knowledge explosion."
"Bush describes a memex as an electromechanical device enabling individuals to develop and read a large self-contained research library, create and follow associative trails of links and personal annotations, and recall these trails at any time to share them with other researchers. This device would closely mimic the associative processes of the human mind, but it would be gifted with permanent recollection. As Bush writes, 'Thus science may implement the ways in which man produces, stores, and consults the record of the race.'"
In fact, just three years before writing that essay, Bush had built a bit of a machine-brain in 1942 and it was named for its backer, the Rockefellers [linked here]:
Rockefeller Differential Analyzer - The RDA was operational in 1942, a year after the Zuse Z3. It was equipped with 2000 vacuum tubes, weight 100 tons, used 200 miles of wire, 150 motors and thousand of relays. According to historian Robin Boast, "the RDA (Rockefeller Differential Analyzer) was revolutionary, and later was considered to be one of the most important calculating machines of the Second World War."
With those statements above by Dr. Bush, now we are beginning to see a vision taking shape of the development of Artificial Intelligence. If you've been following the research of Quinn Michaels [linked here], then you know how the trail of the #AI communication system known as #Tyler leads back to that same period when the Nazi "Paperclip" scientists came to Ft. Bliss, Texas.
The point of reviewing this techno history is to suggest that, when Hillary Clinton took her stroll with Laurance Rockefeller at Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 1995, there was likely much more than UFO's on Rockefeller's mind. In 1995, the World Wide Web was positioning itself to become a household word. Satellite communication and fiber optic cable were on the brink of transforming the lives of every man, woman, and child on the planet. The Rockefellers were deeply invested in the information revolution and had been involved with all manner of advanced government research via foundations and universities throughout the entire 20th century.
Furthermore, when you consider the arguments that Joseph P. Farrell poured into his book "Roswell and the Reich," and the conclusions he reached to the effect that what the U.S. government was primarily covering up was the fact that the post-war Nazi elite were operating UFO's as a rogue, breakaway community, it makes sense that Laurance would continue to promote a public narrative bent on continuing that diversion.
Part of that diversionary narrative might also have included the need to obfuscate the true source of the radically new technology. The "extraterrestrial" component in the narrative might actually be true, but not in the way that all the sci-fi movies have led you to believe.
"The material world is secondary to consciousness."
This is where Grant Cameron's statement can be inserted as a bookmark into this discussion. He reviews the conclusions that the Canadian government reached in the 1950's about the U.S. Deep State intel relative to the UFO issue. Once again, Dr. Vannevar Bush's name came up, but note also the interesting point #5 below about mental phenomena. Cameron has a full page about this at his website [linked here]. Note, also, that there is nothing here that refers explicitly to "aliens":
1) The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating higher than even the H-bomb.
2) Flying saucers exist.
3) Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Vannevar Bush.
4) The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.
5) The United States authorities are investigating along quite a number of lines, which might possibly be related to the saucers such as mental phenomena.
At the 2-hour, 6-minute mark of this recent interview, Liszt and Cameron further comment:
Liszt: "You've come to the conclusion that most of the UFO phenomenon is about consciousness?"
Cameron: "That's what it comes down to. That's the whole bottom line.... 14% of all experiencers claim that you fly the flying saucer with your mind. It comes down to an idea about 'Is the world made of nuts and bolts, or is it made of consciousness?' And I say it's made of consciousness. The material world is secondary to consciousness."
Hold that thought, "The material world is secondary to consciousness," on the back burner for the next blog. That statement is not a bad summary of a 2,000 year old heretical belief system known as "Gnosticism." Near the beginning of the 20th century, a Jesuit priest named Pierre Teilhard de Chardin would incur the wrath of the non-Jesuit Papacy by likewise evangelizing a humanist evolution in consciousness. One critic of Teilhard named Laura Kimball [linked here] recently described him as "an evolutionary scientist, New Age Hindu-style pantheist and occult Hermetic and alchemical magician who, on behalf of his Great Work, sought fusion of opposites, for example..., of man with Omega point, the very substance of God." Hmmm, sounds like he would have gotten along great with Ray Kurzweil.
Teilhard would follow a path similar to Admiral Byrd and Dr. Vannevar Bush in that he benefited from the financial largesse of the Rockefellers in a field of study about as far removed from Artificial Intelligence as you can imagine.
Or so it would seem, until you look at the Teilhard story more closely. Considering the statement made by Laurance Rockefeller at the top of this blog, it may be that the Jesuit Order and other gnostic societies have been influencing the Rockefellers, which, in turn has led to the technocracy we live under today. In the next blog, we'll take a look at how his gospel of the Noosphere influenced the Transhumanist quest in which the world now finds itself engaged. (continued ....)
