"I always tell my students that there is no science fiction anymore. All the science fiction I read in high school, we're doing."
- Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Center for Ethics at Emory University in Atlanta.
Remember how in the book 1984 by George Orwell the one thing The Party couldn't do was look inside your mind at what you were really thinking?
"They could spy on you night and day, but if you kept your head you could still outwit them. With all their cleverness they had never mastered the secret of finding out what another human being was thinking."
Um, yeah...about that...
The United States Department of Homeland Security is developing a system designed to detect “hostile thoughts” in people walking through border posts, airports and public places. These thought scanner systems may also be used on people at large sporting events. The people developing this technology are even attempting to develop the capabilities to "scan" people remotely, without their knowledge.
Project Hostile Intent, renamed the more innocuous-sounding Future Attribute Screening Technology
(Just humour the death metal background music if that's not your thing.)
So, have any doubts about the official 9/11 story? Think the invasion of Iraq was morally reprehensible? Dislike thousands of riot police marching through your streets? Don't like the U.S. President's haircut?
Well, any of these "hostile thoughts" could conceivably lead to you being put on an official list of suspicious characters. And if they're really not happy with the quality of your thoughts, you could be be labelled an "enemy combatant" and held indefinitely without charge - referred to as "prolonged detention," something Obama has reinforced during his time in office.
Think that's far-fetched?
I would direct you to this blog post about a writer's collective in Pittsburgh that had its private home surrounded by police with rifles just prior to the G20 meeting. Reason? They must have gotten themselves "on a list," they were told by an officer.
The use of new technological weaponry against protesting citizens at the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh in late September went completely unreported in the mainstream media. Other than the fact that the mainstream corporate media is censored, the use of these new weapons brings up a bigger issue - the misuse of technology against humanity to further the aims of certain groups of people.
This is a very Aquarian Age topic.
It also relates to the dangers of moving headlong into the "Age of Aquarius," with its focus on scientific and technological advances and their detached application within human societies, without first learning the lessons of the Piscean Age. That this is an interconnected energetic scene here on Planet Earth (although this concept is constantly misused to promote homogenization/One World Government). That what affects one will inevitably affect all. That our naive glossing over of details in favour of "hoping for the best" and "focussing on the light" can leave us vulnerable and victimized by the forces we're so intent on denying. And that blindly following external sources of pseudo-power without asking questions or looking deeper than their rhetoric can create calamity in a big way.
Pluto in Capricorn is going to do its best to unearth the hierarchical, pyramid-scheme power structures for us over the next 15 years, bringing them to collective awareness. We're going to see a lot of ugliness that was previously covered up and a lot of state control, enforced by hired thugs, coming to the forefront. It's our Plutonic necessity (should we choose to fulfill it) not to look the other way as Pluto brings things up from the dark for our examination - even though that's the choice the mainstream mass of people will make.
As Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron finish their retrogrades in Aquarius over the next two months, we're challenged to look specifically at the ways science and technology and the rhetoric of the Aquarian Age, in general, can be (and are being) misused and abused by those who do not have the whole of humanity's best interests at heart.
Before handing their power over to this "New World Order" preaching an era of global peace, cooperation and prosperity, people need to look deeper. They need to look at track records, root motivations, allegiances and the way these supposed leaders are going about bringing their New World Order into existence.
I'm not sure how people are detaching themselves enough from the citizen protesters and activists that they can swallow this level of police state hook, line and sinker. (Even with the assistance of the corporate media and their "anarchist bogey men" stories.) But this is a definite danger of the manipulation of Aquarian energy. Making it into some sort of detached, surreal, video game atmosphere...instead of flesh and blood, real human life.
As with most things, science and technology can be used for the benefit of humanity as a whole or as a tool of the few for maintaining control - used coercively, manipulatively and destructively.
The focus most often in mainstream media is on how new technologies can benefit humanity. This is the spin. But the reality of our hierarchical power structures on this planet, shaping the use of those technologies, is what generally determines how they are really used. It's all about intent and root motivation. Pluto subjects.
Knowing what I know about the so-called "world leaders" and their past actions against humanity, I don't feel comfortable with these types of technologies being at their disposal...
And yet the vast majority of people go on with their daily lives, none the wiser. They don't have a sniff that any of this is going on, nor do they have any desire to know.
They'll just continue to work jobs and buy cars and houses and have babies, delivering their children into the system unaware, same as they were.
To me, as horrific as the dark and twisted information Pluto digs up is...it's tenfold more horrific to think that people would go about their lives NOT knowing it. That they go on as if nothing were wrong, with not a single concern about anything outside their immediate circle of family and friends.
And so it marches forward...
And the burden on those of us who can't deny Plutonic consciousness remains almost unbearably heavy at times. We remain the bad guys, the sad sacks, the "negative" ones.
All because the collective won't take on its responsibility for this consciousness.
And so we're at a loggerheads. Collective denial with Plutonic individuals who must continue to try to bring it to awareness.
I sometimes feel as if I'm doing CPR on an already cold and lifeless body.
But hey, we're here, aren't we? There's really nothing better to do than to continue the effort. :-) What am I going to do instead, drive my Escalade to get a mani-pedi from some poor Asian lady and then go buy a Hermes Birkin bag?
