I have mentioned before I am sort of a geek when it comes to space, aliens and theories about life and physics. Not so much with the more deep end of science fiction but the science that makes me doubt reality, time, space and everything about myself. So more, The Matrix than Star Trek I guess is what I am trying to say. More Michio Kaku than Frank Herbert.
For the last few months I have been re-watching the X-Files and catching up on the last few seasons that I never saw before. The other night the kitten and I switched to Ancient Aliens and I came up with another theory about abductions and the idea that aliens have guided humanity since the beginning.
Understand of course that I am a stoner, high school drop-out but if a job has theoretical in the name then it says to me, anyone can do it, whether or not they have a PHD or a vivid imagination, an idea is an idea. I have no idea if someone has come up with it before me, the chances I have an original thought is not my bet. Maybe more research should be done before I run my mouth but this is bubbling in my head and I have to work it out so that I can stop dreaming about it.
This post was called out there, so you have been warned.
Aliens have supposedly been coming around, abducting people, guiding humanity, crashing, and hanging around the whole time supposedly. All the sightings and all the stories can’t be just stories, there has to be something to it, even though they have not made their presence generally known, there is enough speculation and people who are absolutely convinced. It is kind of a terrifying thought to think we really are alone out here on this rock, aimless and spinning out of control without any meaning. To me, believing there is something unknown and mysterious gets me through the day. If I was to believe we are alone in this great expanse and this is all just a big ant farm means that I can’t believe in souls, love, kindness, forever or god. If we are the only creatures out here than this was all an accident and it doesn’t matter what happens today or tomorrow or in a thousand years from now. The experiment will end and it will not matter how energy efficient and green we try to be, no one will matter, my part in the story will mean nothing in the end. All of this might be true but who knows, it’s no crazier than most organized religions, none of us will know who is right about what until it’s too late.
So if this is all for a reason, if we have souls and there really is some sort of creator then somehow things will go on, the fire will burn somewhere somehow for all eternity. Over time we have learned many things about the universe and space, science and religion have always been at odds but both have been racing to find an answer to all the questions. Maybe they are both right but for different reasons.
The big bang, set off by a thought, humanity given life from that consciousness. This consciousness could be say, the mysterious dark matter that binds everything together. Where souls go, to become a part of the force, back to the source. If we are made of atoms, it makes sense that we would go back to being atoms. Some parts might die but once given awareness, maybe those parts stay aware, and perhaps those parts get to watch as everything unfolds. I think some people call it the all Seeing Eye and meditate to get glimpses of these other levels and places where consciousness goes. There can be no time after there is no body dying slowly with every passing day. Time is a human constraint, like emotions. If we are spinning alone out here, then we really are eternal. One world after another, maybe this is not the first and perhaps it won’t be the last. The ant farm is run by something and we would do well to listen to the whispers and the signs.
We have always tried to figure out time travel and if there are parallel universes. There are theories about how if there was a big bang there will be a big crunch, for every beginning, there will always be an end. If there is no time and space is infinite, then there could be conscious beings that can see the beginning, the middle and the end. As those atoms get older, go further into the reaches of space, they will change as all things do, they will come in contact with other elements and become alien, still watching with that eye, coming back to us on earth when they have a memory, coming back sometimes to be reborn to another life, to try again.
In different shapes, at different time’s glimpses of these creatures, these people happen. Perhaps enough generations have passed that there are civilizations out there, made up of conscious particles that have come together and built new worlds. Maybe there are souls drifting through time long enough that they have seen the end, these might be the ones who come back and abduct as a way to figure out how to save not just us with our fleshy shells but everything that has ever happened or ever will happen in the future. This leads me to believe that if these “aliens” have always been coming back to guide us, then sooner or later they will come to tell us or show us what it takes and what we need to do, like the pyramids or Stonehenge, sooner or later we will figure out space travel and time travel, everything happens in its own time. One or more of those aliens got to see a time before they were there and said, “Hey, remember that thing that was there and we all wondered about it? How stupid were we, let’s do this so we can laugh about it later.” Some people might call them angels, I like to think of it as souls or at least consciousness, guides or spirits.
We have a responsibility to fill our consciousness with as much knowledge as possible if this is true. If we learn as much as possible and accept our fates while we are here, living for the moment as much as possible, perhaps in the next phase of the journey, we will be able to explore the very edges of deep space and find all the answers. While the body rots in the ground or in ashes, those particles of personality will be free to move through all dimensions, seeing the beginning and the end as one. So, I am not talking about little green men. Maybe it is us, in new forms, from various times in the span of the universe. Perhaps at some point, the sun really does swallow the earth and we have to make a living in some other galaxy, surviving in climates that would change us in fundamental ways within a few generations. With more advanced technology and altered chemistry, they would seem like aliens to us. That technology could be used to travel back to earth at various times in history, either changing it, shaping and guiding it or just watching and learning from a short distance. Ghosts might be explained this way, a consciousness that replays and holds on to their mortality, fearing the unknown instead of letting go and becoming one with the darkness. Dark matter might be so unexplained because we can-not grasp the things that come after with our conscious minds, it is a secret that is explained by moving into another state of being or whispered in the wind on a summer day if someone is listening at the right time.
If all your lives are stored like data, you would be able to tap into all those memories somehow. Once all of times becomes one, then you will have lived life after life on earth and remember the nothingness of space or you will have found your way to another civilization somewhere else, you would be able to remember it all but only in bits and pieces.
Gods were created by ignorance, fear, a need to believe in something bigger and misunderstandings when looked at like this, because the weight of being a creator, being responsible and being eternal is kind of scary. We are all gods, we are all part of the big picture writing the story as we go along, and we are gods of our own perception, gods of our own destiny. Not to say that religion has not hit on some good ideas now and then but it has never had enough of a complete picture, if it did, there would not be so much conflict. Every day we are learning more about who we are and technology is taking over more and more. Leaps and bounds with more and more to make as we go. You never know what might happen or what the future holds. If we are powerful enough to create gods, time, IPods, smartphones and atom bombs we should figure that our consciousness has to be strong enough to hold the whole universe together, maybe it is all that has held it together until now, maybe we created ourselves on this planet because we knew it was the place to be through our collective, dark consciousness as our atoms bounced around the cosmos waiting to connect with something and have meaning for a while. This is how we will eventually become able to communicate telepathically, we were all one once and we will all be one again. Maybe the radio waves we need to listen to are the ones in our minds, maybe the voices have something to say.
Every few years trends change, ET is definitely making a big comeback lately or maybe I have been paying more attention than usual. I just found a show on the science channel called are we alone and like I said, I have always liked stuff like this. It is a lot more interesting than possession movies, George Lucas might have been one of the prophets, guiding us forward, who knows.
It makes me wonder if something has been found, like they use mass media to prepare us for what is to come. This line of thought will take me into conspiracy theories so I should stop there. I just don’t think that people like me are going to be the first to know if something does break in the great mysteries of life and the universe. If it does happen I will be sitting in front of my TV, refreshing my laptop waiting for news like everyone else or at the beach watching the sky. Honestly though, I am sure there would be a tight lockdown by the government or the church is something has changed or happened recently or ever. The funny this is though, a big subject at many of the presidential debates has been space and funding the technology to explore.
Like I said, this idea is a bit out there. But it seems like it could make a fun story so look for it coming soon. The ozone is burning away, the sun is freaking out and seems ready to make a move. What will be, will be. Instead of thinking outside the box, maybe we need to look internally to find the answers. Everyone has a different way of figuring things out, some use high powered computers, some use the bible others find comfort in asking more questions and doubting everything. My flame burns bright even if my mortal life ends tomorrow, I have to hope that it will count for something in the end. Somehow I would like to believe that anything is possible, I want to believe that we are eternal and that the unknown holds something amazing in store. Perhaps wormholes start in our minds and can take us anywhere, for any amount of time. There is a wall that someone will break through someday, once enough time passes or we evolve to a place where we can understand all the places in our minds that are untapped we will be changed as a species.
Again I wonder where the line between well-educated and complete nut job is. Who is right and who is wrong? How long before we will have the answers we strive for? Using the tools we have, anyone could come up with the answers at this point. It is an interesting time to be alive. Maybe I am just crazy, a dreamer, a high school drop-put or maybe there is one consciousness that could be called a god, maybe I just smoke too much and think too much or maybe I should ban myself from watching science shows like I had to do with the news a few years ago. What do I know?
The Truth Is Out There.
