I am not a member of any religion,
creed or caste.
(I was briefly a member of the Sydney
Atheist society but then it got all too hard to get to and they
wanted more money so that was the end of that. Don't even get started on why we need an "Atheist society" in the first place!)
I don’t “believe” anything: why I do is collect evidence and assemble it in a rational way to
get glimpses of a bigger picture that I theorise exists. Normally I
am content to watch other people do their digging and enjoy the
intelligent analysis of people I trust – in general.
Nobody gets all of it right – for
example I have heard a number of people making supportive noises
about a certain movie that shows (supposedly) a UFO being chased by a
USN jet fighter. Then I listened to John Lear give his sixpence
worth: he called it BS because it just doesn’t even look realistic
and the pilots don’t talk like real Navy pilots. I am very glad
that John said it because right from the first time I saw it
something looked fake to me but I couldn’t identify all of the
reasons why – and he has a lot of experience that strongly suggests
it is fake.
But I digress.
For a while last year I was watching
“Cosmic Disclosure” with DavidWilcock and Corey Goode – not
because I believed it all but because it had a certain entertainment
value even though there was never any supporting evidence for the
grandiose claims made.
Then there was one day on a bus to work
where at least two people actually set out to mock them – to me
directly. I won’t bother you with the details but the event stuck
in my mind because someone planned that, and it suggested that
they needed to refute Corey Goode’s stories to me.
I don’t know anyone who would do
The two people disappeared before I
could do anything – and besides, I had to get to work.
Those who did it had to locate me to
carry this out, which means they have at the very least some
surveillance chops – but the big one is why.
I paid a whole ten dollars a month or
something pitiful like that to the host, “Gaia TV” which also has
lots of videos about how to meditate and a lot of other "new age" type
stuff which I have not bothered with. Does someone want to kill Gaia
TV so bad they are paying people to destroy their paying customers or
is it something specific to Cosmic Disclosure?
Why was someone watching what I watch
on the internet in the first place?
I won’t bother with the whole series,
just know that I have been considering a replacement for my current
computer and this is the survey of possible contenders.
I started off looking at server
machines because I like reliable solid gear but after digging into
the costs of buying the parts and seeing it was around $10k I decide
Here is the chart I made up comparing CPU power and cost for high end desktop gear:
So, from the CPU chart it can be seen
that although server grade Xeon CPUs beat the heck out of anything
else, the wallet is going to be bitten hard: and note that cost is only
the CPUs, one must add in the cost of the rest of the machine too . .
. . . . so why insist on server gear? Will I be running it 24/7?
nope. Will it need to be running full bore all the time? Nope.
Ten grand is a year’s worth of
savings for me so anything I buy better be worth it.
Sooooo . . . . how about the latest
The Core i9-7980XE looks impressive but
once again the wallet will suffer for it and then there are a couple
of other issues: first, it uses a lot of power and generates a lot of
heat to get that performance so you better make sure it has lots of
cooling, and then there is the matter of getting hold of one: nobody
is selling made up machines with one in . . . . .
So that leads to the current
top-of-the-heap from Intel, the Core i9-7900X.
I wouldn’t be getting one without a
GTX 1080 Ti GPU card as that is the best current one - so, after a
bit of digging around here are a new group of contenders - all have
the 7900X and a GTX1080 Ti, I didn’t care so much about the other
(1) PCCG Phantom $6899
Has two 1080 Ti’s in SLI (joined
(2) Alienware Area 51 $5999 ($1000
(3) Kenjun Special $5084
(4) Newegg Battlebox $4257
This might look simple but there
are hidden costs: all must be shipped to your door and the Newegg
will come from California. I can’t get any info about how
much shipping will cost at the moment – Newegg didn’t answer my
Both (1) and (3) ship inside Australia.
If I knew what the shipping cost of the Battlebox was I might choose
it first but I get that sneaky feeling it’s going to hike up the
price near the $5k line again and the Battlebox has one of those
garish glass-n-lights boxes too.
The PCCG is a bit pricey - even
if you pull one of the GTX cards and The SLI bridge out, it still comes in at $5561 - and they won’t let you change the
config, you have to take what they sell and change it yourself after
The best is the Kenjun, they will let you
change things once you have placed your order and it comes in a plain
black case instead of one of those ugly glass-and-lights thingos.
They are based in QLD so it should not be too pricey to get a
delivery and I could even maybe get the door replaced with one that
does not have glass but sound deadening instead. Nice, quiet, plain
black box: I want all the action in my computer to be on the screen.
I was really hoping to double my
performance but the only way to do that without going overboard is
the 7980XE – well, unless I go back to the server gear again and
that adds $4k-$5k to the cost.
Considering that this (current)
computer has cost me about $7k without including several extras
(SSD’s, GPU card, RAM), paying out $5k doesn’t sound too bad. It
also has upgrade potential that the old one lacks. Well, okay, it
looks that way at the moment but then many have been infuriated in the past by changes in sockets, chips and so on so it doesn’t pay
to get too optimistic about that.
Well, regardless of that, I maintain
that if it took me six months to save the money I should take a
corresponding long time to spend it too.
This is an example of ignorance that I chose because it is typical of the simple minded folks who really don't want to kow the truth. This is a dramatic oversimplification of complex matters.
Space suits such as the astronauts wore for the Apollo missions would not protect you from the radiation in the Fukushima reactor because they were never designed to protect against that strength of Gamma radiation. Note that the author does not seem to know the difference between Gamma rays and alpha and beta rays such as would be found in the Van Allen radiation belts - or that the Apollo missions only passed through the very thinnest part of the belts - ah, but that is all too complicated, right?
The moon missions went through the belts very near the north pole. Note also that NASA has sent satellites through the VanAllen belts.
Lucky is the fool who did not put his name to this work.
Since my last post there has been a big
blowback directed at Corey Goode and David Wilcock of “Cosmic
Disclosure” on Gaia TV website for not providing any real
supporting evidence for the claims made in their show.
I’m not going to get into that here,
except to say that I have found more careful, evidence supported
analysis from others – and thus for this episode, the few who get
good scores from me.
First, Richard Dolan. Richard
has a good analytical approach to the whole “UFO Scene” - he has
a lot to say and it’s carefully though out.
Richard is one person who has expressed
skepticism about Corey Goode and his associates, and noted what
appears to be a lot of connections to the “new age” ideology,
none of which seems to me to have any supporting evidence either. I
did try to watch a video where Corey apparently replied to the
criticisms of his work but I just could not watch it – it was just too
awful and slow for me.
Next. Joseph P. Farrell. Joseph
is generous in his provision of information – he is a very
competent researcher and has assembled impressive information on
aspects of the UFO field that look very accurate and clear –
particularly since he takes the sort of approach that I appreciate:
both the social, historical and technical all meshing together to
make a coherent picture.
Here is one example of Joseph on a
radio show- there are a lot of vids of him on Youtube.
Yes, I know the title sounds new-agey
but check out his vids, you won’t be disappointed.
His books also appear on Adventures
Unlimited Press website run by David Hatcher Childress, another
author well known for his works in this field. To be honest, I am not
sure what to think about David, I'll leave that up to you - but he does have a lot of books etc. for sale.
Finally, the place where almost all of
the UFO/Altsci people can be found, Project Camelot.
Note that the folk running Project
Camelot are careful not to offer critique of anyone who may appear
wit hwild tales, but rather they seek to document and record these
people – so that you can judge for yourself, and there are a LOT of
interviews on the Camelot site - so I really cannot give it a rating: each perosn interviewed must be judged individually.
Cosmic Disclosure: Corey Goode and
David Wilcock : Good but . . .
(on Gaia TV )
I am undecided about Corey: some parts
of his story are very hard to accept such as what he calls the “Twenty
and back” where young people serve in space for twenty years then
are reverse aged and memory wiped so that they remember nothing of
their time – and then return to the almost the same time they left
to serve, thus nobody knows about it. Corey says he is an unusual
one as his memory wipe didn’t work – or maybe something or
someone gave it back to him. He doesn’t exactly say.
Never mind anything else, this is hard
to accept. I understand that as a teen myself I wished that I could
fly around in space and meet aliens and so on . . . . so it would be
easy to imagine it all . . . . . and yet Corey comes across as
genuine.If that means anything.
So I give him an “undecided”
because I think that some of what he claims is true . . . .
and wait to see if any more will be confirmed. Somehow.
The Secret Space Program story neatly
combines several threads together: first it claims that all
“spiritual technology” is denigrated here in the west because it
really works and can be used to do all sorts of amazing things that
can also be enhanced using technology. Of course, since it has
military applications it must be denigrated and ridiculed in public,
Then there is the group of claims that
there is an entire series of space colonies populated by humans out
there: Mars, the moon, the Asteroid belt, all the way out to the Oort
Cloud – there are said to be more than seven million humans on Mars
There are also hundreds, thousands,
millions of alien races – all of them basically humanoid in shape
but otherwise varied in colour, shape and so on. It’s a big, busy
galaxy and we are a stop on a cosmic “silk road”.
The whole of our science is basically
faulty : the universe is primarily electromagnetic, there is no
speed of light limit and space travel is commonplace.
Not only that, but there are portals
or "wormholes" everywhere too: some are natural but there are plenty of artificial
ones that can be used to travel instantly across space to other
planets etc. etc.
His story matches diverse elements from
history into a coherent whole – for example, supposedly some
Germans before and during WW2 developed secret flying saucers but
those responsible left Germany and Hitler’s people long before the
end and moved to a base in Antarctica where the easily defeated
Admiral Byrd and his forces during “Operation High Jump” - which
is well reported, although the exact details are not clear.
Things like this make me think either
he is good at assembling history into a neat whole, or he really does
have some serious inside information.
For me at the moment, the big question
is whether “spiritual technology” is real or not.
I can take it a step further though:
even if there is a “spiritual realm” or “higher dimensions”
that we can connect with, if I can’t sense or connect with these in
some way it is meaningless to me.
This is not about logic or science,
it’s simply experience.
Yes, I have had dreams where I floated
around and seemed to be looking at the outside world – but there
was no information gained that could be confirmed later in the waking
world – so it might as well have been all just a dream, and that is
the cruncher: whatever other worlds may exist in dreaming or some
other state, if it does not connect with or somehow have meaning in
the real world, it is no more than “brain farts” as some people
I admit , I would like to believe in
what Corey is saying, but I have no supporting evidence about any of
it apart from a few indirect real historical events – or other
YouTube vids which have the same credibility problems as Corey’s
own claims. Yes, there are a group of YT channels or presenters that
seem to be all singing from the same songsheet – There is “The
Event”, Corey and others I can’t recall at the moment - all
provide mutual supporting evidence and promise The Event is coming
soon when all the bad boys will get their just deserts – and of
course I would be happy to see some of the horrors of our world ended
and the perpetrators on trial, along with the secrets brought out
into the open so we can save our planet and ourselves . . . . . but
it does seem to be all very optimistic too, and totally unlike any
time in the past. I would welcome an end to the ignorance of this
current age, but hope will not be enough to bring that about.
Corey makes amazing claims but has no
supporting evidence apart from a few other people who have appeared
on his show – and they don’t seem to have any material evidence
For me, his credibility is not helped by working with David Wilcock who I have decided is
totally outside my reality: he is something like a religious preacher
- he makes grandiose claims but just like Corey has no, I repeat NO
solid supporting evidence – and when people make claims such as he
recently did about some sort of apocalypse that only “the pure at
heart” will survive I must call it bullshit – because there is
no historical precedent. It is true that things happen that don’t
have any historical precedent, of course, but I will wait and see.
It seems that I am a very un-spiritual
person, not having any memories of past lives or recall of
out-of-body journeys etc. etc. and despite my time as a church member Jesus never saved me, and I don’t
think any of that will change in a hurry. Maybe I’m just a young
soul who is only on my third or fourth life. :)
I just don’t
accept anything blindly and to me “faith” is a con. Faith gets
people all expecting things so that they might even delude themselves
into making things appear in their own imaginations: it’s a sort of
I don’t do faith. Give me something
real, or admit it’s fiction.
I bought David’s book, “The
Ascencion Mysteries” but I can’t read it, but that is much better
than “The Law Of One’ which he draws a lot of his ideas from in
the book. It is available free on the net: but it is really unreadable.
I stopped reading it when it got to a part where it said something
like “The Pyramids build themselves”. It’s worse than legalese
too – the way it is written is quite, well, alien.
So why do I still watch Corey and
David? Because it is an entertaining story. It expresses what I
concluded myself as a child – that we are just a little ball of
dirt at the edge of a big galaxy and it is full of life and living
beings travelling, trading and doing whatever else they do . . . . we
are just a handful of primitives down here who are just not getting
out there yet, for some reason. The very idea of a dead, empty galaxy has always been silly to me: as I wrote ina previous post, why do our scientists assume they have discovered everything and that there is nothing out there because their instruments can't pick up anything? It's foolish. As silly as the speed of light being a limit.
I guess I’m still hoping that somehow
something will turn up that provides some better evidence supporting
his claims. There are oddments that might indirectly support some of
the claims but nothing concrete . . . . and none of it really relates
to us real folks living down here on Earth, which is the bottom line
of it all: how does this story relate to me? Nothing in the story has
direct meaning for my life: no UFOs ever dropped in on me or put on a
show even when I tried with the help of others (but that’s another
story) - but if you want an intriguing story that reads like grand sci-fi, check out the show - and if you do find something that does support the SSP story, let me know, huh?
