Tell The Truth

"Tell the truth" is an effort to create a viral movement on the web.

The initial slogan of this movement is "Give us youth: Tell the truth!" which was my first tweet on Twitter, yesterday. Hashtag: #GUYTTT. I'm the "TTT guy."

I thought of the basic phrase "tell the truth" during the beginnings of the Occupy demonstrations when everybody what trying to figure out what Occupy wanted.

I figured that, in a nutshell, that's what they wanted. Or in other terms, that is what would have to happen for them to get the outcome they desired; people would have to start telling the truth.

But this was not going any place for me until I recently got into a conversation on the jhaines site that started with a post from Jean of a post or message she got from SaS (Stunned at Sunset). SaS expressed his (I assume his) indignation at the continuous attempts to manipulate not only mainstream public opinion but also "alternative issues" public opinion.

He used the terminology of the "Sovereign Integral" which is part of the Wingmakers teachings and corresponds (roughly) to a Thetan in Scientology.

Because Jean's blog has the "email me with responses" checkbox enabled, I was able to carry out a conversation, of sorts, with SaS. And by the end of it I got the idea for "Give us youth: Tell the truth!"

The cool thing was that not only did the message somewhat make sense, but it was also a couplet (a two-line rhyme).

So I also thought of the idea of asking other people speaking other languages to make up couplets in their own language that expressed a similar sentiment. I also now have the idea of asking for different couplets in English that express a similar sentiment.

What GUYTTT means

I thought I better provide a write-up about this expression in case anyone had questions about it.

This is meant, basically, to be a communication from the people of the world to the power-brokers of the planet. It could be interpreted as a request, a demand, an assertion of what is, or of what could be.

Anyone who is alive knows the power of telling the truth. This demand is not meant to apply simply to "world leaders" or those who stand in the shadows behind them. It is also meant to apply to each other, and to those "beyond" (the ETs).

In all things, there is BE, DO and HAVE.

When a singer sings you get a song.

And when a being is honest, that being tells the truth, and you get...
I chose "youth" because it rhymes with "truth."

Youth connotes a happy, carefree, unrestrained, perhaps innocent, approach to life. So this is a way of saying "happiness" "freedom" "openness" "transparency" "clarity" "understanding" even "love."

It also connotes the younger years of life; childhood. So, for someone older (like myself) it also means "future." When I die, I want to be able to come back and be a child, without the fears of adulthood already peering in the door.

The game

The game is to see how many tweets with the #GUYTTT hashtag can be generated from now to the end of the year.

This could escalate into TTT flash mobs and other such events.

Will this idea spark change or be a dud? We shall see.

Message from Tanaath

Hello Larry,

We've been very busy.

But unfortunately none of it is something I can release at this time,
because it will give away too much information about our readiness and
preparedness state. I'm not so much the communicator right now as
I am actually running a war.

Total Information Breakdown

Between 1983 and 2008 I was cut off from ordinary media channels.

I was working in a religious organization that believed that the news was not worth paying attention to because it was being run by a bunch of guys who saw profit in fear, terror, and the macabre.

The first real media cover-up I personally witnessed was the JFK assassination. This was a deep, earth-shattering incident. The TV coverage was shallow and superficial.

We were on vacation when Robert Kennedy was shot, and I did not see the coverage of that. But the accused is still convinced that he is innocent.

I do not recall coverage of the Watts riots (1965) or MLK assassination (1968). I think it was probably somewhat insignificant.

The next major coverage that I remember was the Vietnam war. This, as we are just now beginning to learn now, was a major exercise in deception. Yet: It WAS a war. Our men were fighting and dying there. There was no denying that fact.

Most of the major incidents after that I missed either partially or completely. We did get to see videos of what happened at 911, but that was about all.

As it turns out, almost all the above events, plus many more before and since, were planned, non-spontaneous, media-manipulated events. I became aware that the media were being manipulated in 1982 just before I started working for my church. 

But it was not until after I stopped working there, 2009 to now, that I realized the extent of the manipulation.

I recently watched a video about the problem of totally staged media events. This type of event uses actors and sound effects with "reporters" who are in on it, to completely fabricate the "facts" of an event, by supposedly interviewing "eye witnesses." This is currently being done in Syria.

If the mainstream media can do this and get away with it, then they are a total joke. They have become totally irrelevant.

This same source (about staged events) then became compromised (or perhaps always was) and started making outlandish claims that major public figures were actually just movie actors. So now he is "debunked" and his whole theory brought into question. Convenient, eh? Those who have been watching closely believe some of his material was accurate, probably to draw an audience.

911 was a great international disaster. Various earlier atrocities were, too. The whole Serbian conflict. Various earlier "terrorist" attacks. The various wars including Vietnam, Korea, WW2, WW1, etc. 

In Scientology, we have a name for events like this: Group Engram. This means an extremely traumatic event that affects a whole group instead of just a single individual. And Hubbard had a theory about Group Engrams that aligned with his work on individual engrams: That they would draw attention from and bother a group until properly "cleared."

The way you "clear" a group engram is by having a complete and impartial investigation of the incident that gets to the bottom of what really happened to the satisfaction of all involved (except maybe the criminals that caused it). This is what we try to do with Congressional Hearings (and Inquires in Commonwealth countries). But it isn't working. The ethics of the politicians has become compromised, and they are no longer capable of performing this function, if they ever were.

This job, then, falls back to the press. But, what do you know? It has likewise been compromised and can no longer perform this function, if it ever could. We then must rely on the efforts of private individuals, rogue journalists and a few brave scientists and historians to try to figure these things out ten, twenty, thirty or more years after they happened. Have they succeeded? Well, I am glad I am aware of their work, but with the mainstream media (which is sort of like the nerve system of the nation) compromised, most of the group may never find out what those individuals have discovered.

And so we come to Aurora, Colorado, early in the morning of Friday, 20 July.

We have not yet seen an official report from investigators as to what happened. But now the chances of getting such a report seem quite remote. Instead, the President of the United States (or his handlers) decided that he should be the one to impart this information to the public, and did so in the section of his speech in the hospital about "Allie." The question of an accomplice has, for the time being, been covered with a story of courage that saved the life of a young woman. 

This whole thing stinks. This is not reality; it's the Matrix.

This is the first major group engram I have witnessed via the internet (and NPR radio) since I stopped working for my church. And I am totally appalled. This story has more holes in it than a piece of Swiss cheese. And the mainstream media swallowed it hook, line and sinker. I have witnessed the President himself attempt to tell the American people what to think about what happened there that night. Just like Bush tried to do after 911.

This information system has lost almost all touch with reality. I do not trust it. It has been totally compromised. If we ever want it to work again we will probably have to disassemble it and rebuild it from scratch. I am not shocked; my training and study prepared me for this. But I am appalled. We are being conned, and most of us are going along with it. That is no way to survive; and there is no good reason to give up on trying to survive. At least, I don't think there is.

Layers of Deception

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”
The Wizard of Oz, 1939, MGM

Maintaining a secret requires deception.

I hope that proposition is self-obvious.

The question of why secrets are thought to be required is a little harder to get to. The truth about this, if there is any, is part of the secret!

One aspect of the problem involves leading someone to believe that if they do certain things (that most beings are fond of doing) that they will be kicked out of the game. There are not many punishments in the universe worse than being banned from a game. The same entity that convinced us of this terrible consequence for “sinning” then sets things up to encourage us to do just that. Now we must keep these actions secret, or risk being banished, or so we think. Sin, then, is a social control mechanism that can be enforced in deceptive ways that in turn lead to the desire to be deceptive.

Underlying this control mechanism lie misunderstandings that ultimately seem to be based on self-deception. Thus, the possibility arises that a being can keep something secret from itself. This is a real trick! However, therapies based on self-inspection would not work at all if self-deception were not a key factor in the development of a sense of loss of self-control.

But let's not go there yet. Let us return to the theme of attention, as introduced by the first quote.

Attention

“The magician and the politician have much in common: they both have to draw our attention away from what they are really doing.”
Ben Okri (Nigerian poet and novelist.)

Ability to direct attention is key to controlling an interaction with another individual.

If the flow is one of help, the effort will be in the direction of making a being aware of deceptions that exist around him or in his own universe. This should lead to the resolution of false problems and the confrontation of real problems.

If the flow is one of harm (or manipulation) then the effort will be in the direction of making a being less aware of external deceptions by inventing false problems and focusing his attention on them.

Ben Okri assumes that the art of politics, like the art of magic, is fundamentally based on deception.

But that is not necessarily the case. There could be a considerable range in skill among politicians and among magicians. At the top of the scale might exist real power and real magic. At the bottom of the scale would be false power and false magic. The lower a politician, or magician, is on this scale, the more he must resort to deception. Thus Mr. Okri's generality becomes a more useful gradient of ability versus deception.

To reiterate: Real ability requires little or no deception. Deception becomes a real problem in the absence of real ability. Thus, the need to be deceptive can be reduced by increasing real ability. Of course, deception is also an ability, and can be practiced and “perfected” by those who see no hope in ever gaining any real ability to actually do their assigned task.

Artful deception involves the ability to direct attention away from the truth (or what really is) towards a falsehood (or what really isn't). This is not an article on how to be deceptive, so I will not elaborate on this point.

The point is:

1) The ability to direct attention is not the problem.
2) The inability to do what one is supposed to be doing is the problem.

Failures in ability, and the deceptions that result from them can exist at any level of human activity. This often leads to the experience of “solving a problem” just to find oneself immersed in a bigger problem. In a universe where inability has become the rule rather than the exception, the layers of deception can pile up very thickly indeed.

Eight basic layers

“Watching foreign affairs is sometimes like watching a magician; the eye is drawn to the hand performing the dramatic flourishes, leaving the other hand - the one doing the important job - unnoticed.”
David K. Shipler (American author.)

We can look at life and human activity in terms of sectors, levels or layers. And we can use these levels or layers in studying deception. I resort to Hubbard's Dynamics, a relatively straightforward system of dividing existence, or experience, into layers:
  1. Self. The individual.
  2. Sex and family, the most intimate and real human group.
  3. Groups. This includes clubs, businesses, governments, nations, races and cultures.
  4. Species. We are interested here, mostly, in the human species.
  5. Life Forms. All forms that seem to embody some degree of volition and self-determination, or what could be called thought.
  6. The physical. Composed of observable phenomena that seem much less volitional and much more predictable than life forms.
  7. The spiritual. Composed of phenomena that seem creative in nature, but hidden, mysterious, or simply difficult to perceive.
  8. The infinite. A category intended to encompass “everything else that is, could be, or might be.”

Inability at any of these levels is not inevitable. But it is quite common, particularly at the higher levels. Life does not come with an instruction manual. We have had to figure these things out as we went along. And it would appear that we have made some stupendous blunders.

However, as we see in many human games, mastery is possible. And as I argue, with every ability mastered comes a reduced need for deception.

At this point you could say, why don't we just demand that people be honest about their abilities? But this is not that easy to accomplish. How would you like someone to come around and pick you apart like that? We are all in the same boat in this, really. But some have given up on this more than others. Those most convinced that their inabilities are insurmountable are some of our most dangerous liars. They have totally given up trying to face the truth.

Self

The starting point for everyone is how able one is to “be” or to “be oneself.” The key to this ability is flexibility and honesty, and the average being is full of inflexibility and dishonesty. So when the “spiritual” people tell you that the key to real freedom and ability lies within, they aren't kidding.

However, if you are basically functional in this society, then you have enough on the ball to recognize some of the deceptions around you, and even to do something about them.

Sex and Family

It is probably obvious to most of us that the subject of sex, and to a lesser extent the rearing of children, is strewn with falsehoods and deceptions of magnitude. Most of us experience this as a confusion or uncertainty in these areas.

What is obvious about sex is that it is required to propagate the species. At least our species. Beyond that, the compulsions and inhibitions surrounding this subject seem very considerable. Why?

I would suggest this as a working hypothesis: If you can confuse people sufficiently about sex and family, you can kill a target group of humans without ever firing a shot. Thus we can guess that the origin of these confusions is political in nature.

Groups

What is obvious about groups is that we need them to get things done. In most societies, you cannot even build a shelter or feed a family without some sort of group structure.

Thus we can assume that if we are being deceived or confused on this level, the motives for this may be similar to those relating to sex and the family.

Mankind

Now we get to a layer that is considerably more problematical.

Who, on earth, would want to confuse the whole of mankind about itself? Who cares what mankind thinks about itself? If there is deception on this level, where does it come from?

The obvious answer is that it would come from a non-human source. So now we are getting into an area that is beyond the experience of most of humanity. But not all of humanity! And based on the stories told by that small number of humans who believe they have experienced contacts with non-human (but human-like) species, the consensus is that deception is occurring on this level and that it has to do with, for lack of a better concept, higher-level politics. A word, exopolitics, has recently been coined for this subject.

Life Forms

The deceptions discovered by these contactees extend to the whole subject of how life forms developed and to what extent they have a purpose and if so what that purpose might be.

Though this conflict is often reduced to “evolution versus creationism,” that is a gross oversimplification. If you haven't worked out the deceptions operating at the lower layers, you're not going to get very far with the ones about life forms.

The Physical Universe

In Hubbard's system, this layer lies above the layer of biology, but below the level of the spirit.

This implies a viewpoint that might as well be stated explicitly: Hubbard believed (as do I) that the physical universe was created by the spiritual universe.

In other words, the physical universe is not “dead” and “life” did not arise from it. This assertion challenges some of the claims of science. But I am quite sure that science has no way to substantiate those claims; those claims are just part of the deception.

Again, we see the possibility for political motivations. Beings who are unable to control life as they would like are hoping they can figure out how to do it through physics. But if life is actually in control of physics, then their lack of ability is exposed, and they must begin on the long and arduous journey of spiritual development if they really want the abilities that they wish they had.

The Spiritual Universe

Current models of spirituality normally include the concept of “dimensions.” I have no exact knowledge of where this concept came from or why it is so popular. I know it as a mathematical concept that is not really directly analogous to the spiritual terminology.

The basic concept of a spiritual “dimension” is that it is a layer or realm in “reality” that can only be perceived if a being is at a certain “level of consciousness.”

This is a great way to give people a problem. But is it true?

From one point of view, radio waves could be considered to exist in a different “dimension” because we can't natively perceive them (or so we believe). But with the help of an electronic device, we can perceive radio waves. So doesn't that make them a part of our “dimension?”

Mental energy is another phenomenon that most of us cannot perceive directly. But it is part of our “dimension” too.

In Scientology and in Astral Traveling, beings learn to causatively leave their bodies. When they do this, does this mean that they have “crossed over” into a different dimension? Or does it merely mean that they have gone exterior?

I believe the concept of “dimensions” as they are being taught in various occult practices are an unnecessary complexity being used to hide the fact that those who teach this don't really know what they are talking about.

The Infinite

This layer is usually understood to include concepts of God, Source, Supreme Creator, Prime Mover Unmoved and similar notions.

At this time, I believe the basic deception that is common at this layer is that it is a really important layer. That you are “lost” if you don't “know God.” I don't see any practical reason to take that sort of approach to this layer. This is a very esoteric layer. The truths at this level are difficult for anyone to penetrate or articulate. And in the end, it's just not that important. It's certainly not important enough to start wars over.

The deception seems to be that until you “know God” you cannot know the truth about any of the lower layers of deception. And that's just silly. Of course you can learn more about the lower layers. Look at Dianetics. Look, even at Freudian analysis. These practices aren't ruined just because they have incorrect concepts of God. Their workability lies at the lower layers, and those layers are the most important ones for most people anyway. Just one compulsion, or inhibition, blown by one of these therapies can change a person's whole life around. They work mostly at the first level, the level of Self. But that doesn't mean they aren't powerful. They help a being unravel his own self-deceptions, and that can be very powerful.

There is no such thing as ultimate truth

All truth (which could be defined as a more workable concept of what is) is relative to the level it is found on and applied to.

To be more successful as a being is to find and operate on more truth. But there might be no limit to how successful a being could become. And it is unlikely that there is a limit to how much truth one can find.

Our immediate goal is to get a better grasp of the first four levels. We have global situations to solve, and our solutions will be as workable as they are based on truth and not deception. If we can stabilize the scene on earth, we can take a new look at the stars. But I doubt these words will prevent anyone who really wants to from looking there. After all, there might be some important truths out there, just waiting for one of us to discover. Or perhaps some of us already have discovered some of them.

Generalization

"1. He or she speaks only in broad generalities."
HCO Policy Letter of 27 September 1966
The Antisocial Personality
If you wanted to turn people against each other, or against their government, or a business concern or other social institution (such as their church), would you take care to point out that certain individuals involved in these institutions had gone out-ethics, and thus were messing things up for everyone else, or would you try to find some way to create a generalized, non-specific resentment for the entire institution?

This gives you the primary difference between tactics designed to turn people against each other and tactics designed to restore ethics.

Learn this well!

You will be urged many times to feel or express animosity towards a group, an agency, or an institution. But the truth is that only certain individuals are screwing things up. If you fall for the generalizations, you will be lost in a happy "explanation" for all your problems, but will never resolve any of the most important ones.

If our enemies know anything that we don't know that helps them retain their power, it is this little trick. We must learn to carefully track down the sources - live human beings - of these hateful generalizations. To do this successfully is our only hope of reducing their power.

The problem of Pan-Determinism

"To use a comparison, we could say that creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting-point and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up."
Albert Einstein and Leopold Infeld
The Evolution of Physics. 1938, p159.

Pan-determinism is a Scientology expression for the fact of or ability to rise above the game you are playing, see all the sides, and understand the game in its entirety. It is the ability to control the game without the liabilities (or the experiences) connected with being a player.

Any being is normally in the condition where he is pan-determined over some of the games he is involved with, and only self-determined (or worse, other-determined) in other games.

With the desire to control a situation comes the desire to achieve some level of pan-determinism over it. And as Einstein wrote in his textbook, this involves "climbing a mountain" to get a better view.

Ideally, we all would be able to do this simply be choosing to do this. But this is not the current situation. So what we do instead is look for someone or something that can do this for us. All of the satellites that simply look back at earth from high above it are attempts to accomplish this. Of course, using satellites doesn't work very well because they aren't very intelligent, so don't know where to look to find out what we would most like to know.

So we have fallen back on other methods. One very important player has always been the "seer." People who supposedly have special psychic powers have been employed by governments to help them deal with enemies, fancied enemies, crimes, etc. If the seers were truly gifted, governments, at least, got good information.

More recently, the seers of the planet have been offering their visions to the common man, via the internet. These people come in many shapes, sizes and colors, and with many messages. Some are clearly human beings, while others claim to have direct telepathic connection to non-earthly beings.

This presents us, the viewers of their information, with an interesting problem: Evaluating the information. Any seer has the option of either salting his information with truths, or salting it with lies. The consumer of the information is unlikely to be able to tell the difference until it is too late.

What those of us who take this seriously try to do is to inspect enough different sources to be able to sort this out. This is only marginally workable, though; the best solution remains to become a psychic yourself, and bypass all the secondhand material.

List of sources of "higher-level" information

Below, for your inspection, is a list of data sources that want us to believe that their information is more pan-determined than what we can find here on earth from ordinary human sources:

Ashtar. Before the 1950s, information obtained by psychic means was not normally attributed to ETs. After the "saucer" sightings of the late 1940s, this changed. We know from human sources that a government disinfo (or "psy op") program on the subject of ET began at this time. Some have wondered, therefore, about the true source of the early ET messages. Most of them came from a "Commander" named Ashtar and his group. We are still getting messages attributed to Ashtar or his command.

The Pleiadians.This group was made famous by Billy Meier. They began to contact him regularly in 1975, though he had experienced earlier contacts, all the way back to childhood (1950s again). They claim to be part of the current Resistance Movement.

The Galactic Federation (of Light). This group became an active source of ET messages starting in the mid-1980s. At least that's when Sheldan Nidle reports that messages from them resumed. The Federation paradigm, of course, is capable of encompassing a vast array of players. There have been many contact stories that seem to be related to this group.

The mental collectives. Some messages are described as originating from a "group mind" or mental collective. This includes the famous Ra Material (Book of One) and the Cassiopaean Experiment (Laura Knight).

The Annunaki. A french guy named Rael claims his data comes from the Annunaki and the original Jehova. He describes Annunaki society similar to how Hubbard describes Marcab. It is over-mechanized and morally flabby.

Human Sources. There are a variety of humans who claim to have obtained data about ETs through non-telepathic (or channelled) means. These include all the non-psychic, or unwilling, contactees. This includes researchers like L. Ron Hubbard, Courtney Brown, Dr. Robert T. James, Robert Morningsky and others. These people have verified to their own satisfaction that a phenomenon exists. They are often not sympathetic to the ET message being presented by the willing contactees. Whistle blowers, mostly from the military, have confirmed the existence of "greys" which are not the ones being willingly channelled.

A view from the mountain

The problem with being way up on a mountain is that it is difficult to see the details from way up there.  So we end up with a subtler appreciation for what is going on, without the solid facts necessary to make day-to-day decisions.

What we see when we climb the mountain is roughly the following:
  • The reality of the "The Model." See my other blog (The Model) for a discussion of this. This is a full spiritual model of human experience.
  • The reality of ET.
  • The reality of "government secrets" including "ET government secrets."
  • The pushing of a variety of ancient paradigms such as: Power or status hierarchies extend into the spiritual realms; Top-down organizing structures are also used off planet; The "you need our technology to survive" paradigm; The "into the Light" and "Love and Light" paradigms, which are ancient religious paradigms.
  • Further, the "Light" paradigm seems to originate with ETs affiliated with Sirius. The "Dark" paradigm seems to originate with ETs affiliated with Orion. 
  • "Advanced" societies stop using money, but don't stop using electronics, even at the higher levels. 
  • Nuclear technologies, pollution, and an overzealous approach to controlling nature are dangerous on a planet like earth. Some messages also push population control, while others don't.
  • We have a lot more to learn about life and the technologies that can be used to control it.
  • Our secret governments already possess and use some of those advanced technologies.

The clouds get in the way

What is not coming across with any clarity from "above" includes the following:

Freedom.

I don't see their messages pushing individual freedom as an ideal.

They often push group sovereignty. Where does that leave the individual?

Workable spiritual technologies.

These normally aren't mentioned. The inference is that the ETs have the workable technologies, and we don't have any. Some advocate meditation but I've never seen one advocate Scientology auditing, for instance, nor speak against it. I get no impression that they are interested in educating us on earthly resources that are available now.

Who are "the Cabal" and exactly what are they doing?

The answer to this question seems to be left mostly up to our imagination. 

A big picture we can work with.

This just isn't forthcoming. Everyone always says: Use your discernment. To me, that's just a way of saying "the truth's a secret."

Don't throw away your climbing gear yet.

It is still possible that some individuals will be able to push the scene forward into better clarity. This might well be without "their" help. I can hope this because I know technologies, like Scientology, do exist to make this possible.

It is also possible that one or more controlled media outlets will break away and begin to report the truth. Some are hoping for this. I personally do not think this will accomplish as much as is hoped. That is because of the unenlightened state of the general population on spiritual matters, basic ethics, and The Model. All it takes is one cunning loud voice and a few staged events and the public can be fooled. I am willing to be proven wrong about this!

Introduction to My Universe

My universe was outgrowing the space I had created at Wordpress in 2009.

Bill my PHP instructor wanted us to use a blog to keep him posted on our progress with our projects. Well, I had never had a blog before. So I wasn't just going to start a blog to keep my PHP instructor informed about my progress on my project! So, I tried to make it bigger than that; and it is.

But that blog is about technology. And this blog is about the results of technologies. On this blog I am not going to go deeply into the nuts and bolts of how to do things, either physically or spiritually.

I expect this blog to stay on a very concept level, and concentrate on integrating data from a variety of different sources.

In some ways, this space functions as a storage area for my thoughts and ideas expressed (mostly) in the written language of English. I wish I had a better way to communicate with more people that might be interested in being in communication. But this is more than I could have dreamed of when I was young and kept my writings in a loose leaf notebook that no one else could really ever look through.

I haven't explored the Blogger application very much yet. But I anticipate turning comments off in the beginning. I have not had great experience with the comment paradigm at other sites I have been involved with. If I can, I would like to leave one page for comments. We'll see how that goes. It took a couple years before I became aware that anyone was even reading my Wordpress blog. Outflow is more important than inflow. And communication can be achieved in a variety of ways.
