Second Sun: “2010: The Year We Make Contact”

2010.jpg

2010: The Year We Make Contact is the 1984 sequel to the classic 1968 Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey (sans Kubrick) and answered such burning questions like: “whatever happened to Dave Bowman?” “whatever happened to that space fetus?” “what ever happened to those monoliths?” and “will HAL get his own Saturday morning cartoon show?”

We receive the answers to all of the above and more in 2010, in the process parsing out the then still current Cold War, an intriguing theory regarding a “Second Sun,” and pretty much telling the same story as the same year’s Star Trek III: The Search For Spock.

The Dark Side Of The Moon Landings (And Other Folklore)

moon-hoax-collage.jpg

“But despite a seven year stint at Rocketdyne, the firm that built the main propulsion units for Apollo, I could not work up the least bit of interest in the entire astrophysical circus…not even to the extent of reading an article or watching the most exciting moments on the boob tube. Why, I wondered.”
–Bill Kaysing

“MOON LANDING WAS A HOAX! WE NEVER WENT! DUH!”
–Weekly World News

The “incredibly short bio” of William Charles Kaysing (1922-2005) is, simply, he’s considered the “father” of the “Moon Hoax” theory (not to be confused with The Great Moon Hoax of 1835). Yes, before the work of such luminaries of the fringe as Jay Weidner (Kubrick’s Odyssey) and Dave McGowan (Wagging The Moondoggie) there was former Rocketdyne employee Kaysing’s 1976 self-published book, We Never Went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle.

But, per the ambling-rambling rhythm of these missives to you dear reader, we’re not going to begin with Kaysing. Instead, we are going to begin with the woman I have dubbed “Conspiracy Housewife.”

The 3 Great Spiritual Archetypes: Cuckoos, Masters, and Wanderers

which archetype are you?

Dr. Stephen Strange: I’m not ready.
The Ancient One: No one ever is. We don’t get to choose our time.
–“Doctor Strange”

On your journey of spiritual development, you might find it helpful to have role-models—archetypes—to pattern yourself after. While the annals of “real-life” esotericism are filled with possible heroes & heroines to emulate, you could just as well take the pop-cultural route.

There are three distinct hero/heroine archetypes which seem to recur in mythology, pop-culture, and “real-life.” They all seem to push the boundaries of human evolution—but each in their own unique way.

They are: Cuckoos, Masters, and Wanderers.

Simply put:

  • Cuckoos are “born that way”
  • Masters are more or less “self-made”
  • Wanderers “go with the Flow”

8.28.18: My Name Is Nobody

“It is a tendency for patterns either to repeat themselves locally or for their parts to separate out to join singly or severally with other patterns to form new constellations.”
–Buckminster Fuller

“Know Your Limit”
–incidental words on some piece of advertising

On this day in 1859, the Carrington Event, one of the biggest geomagnetic solar storms on record, hit the Earth. Though by then humanity had such inventions as telegraphs (some of which malfunctioned, sparked, and even caught on fire during the event), there was nowhere near the amount of heavy dependence on technology as there is at present.

The United States Department Of Commerce today released an “Op-Ed” regarding the future of space travel. This post was published on a day that is resonant with three significant events related to the topic:

  1. 1961: JFK asks Congress to support the burgeoning U.S. space program.
  2. 1977: Star Wars is released in theaters.
  3. 2012: SpaceX Dragon becomes the first commercial spacecraft to visit the International Space Station.
