UFOs: The Madness of God and Science as the Anti-Christ
Copyright 2017, InterAmerica, Inc.
Many of you know (or should) that when I’ve written about the death of God, I’m pointing out that I believe the Gnostic god, the demi-urge is the thing that has died, as it did not have an eternal existence.
I believe that there is an intelligence that underlies (or overlays, if you wish) existence, and one can call that intelligence God (and make it the meme for the omnipotent intelligence).
But my supreme intelligence is mad, insane even, and that insanity shows up in our existence, if one is paying attention.
UFOs are a means, one of many, to understanding (or seeing) the insanity that permeates the godhead, the supreme intelligence.
Science is another means to seeking the reality in which we find ourselves, but science turns reality -- truth – on its head, as when it insists that Darwinian evolution is without thought or design, just a haphazard, rambling process from which patterns, culture, creativity, and intelligence emerged.
A review in the current (March 9, 2017) issue of The New York Review of Books, by Thomas Nagel of From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds by Daniel C. Dennett [Norton, 476 pp. $28.95] has me discombobulated.
The review and quotes from the author in his book are a muddle of thought, scientific and philosophical thought, even as the erudition of the author, philosopher Dennett is obvious.
What gets my goat is that science continues to see that there is an underlying intelligence permeating all that exists and has existed, a purpose for life, that purpose yet to be discerned as quantum mechanics shows us.
But science resorts to the idea that life has been a ramble that progressed by natural selection, which I accept.
However for me, there is a sine qua non to that natural selection, an essence that bubbles with madness, insanity….not chaos but a pattern of maliciousness that is inherent to all that lives or has lived, from the dinosaurs to humanity today.
And how do UFOs fit into all this?
UFOs, as I noted above, offer a means to see and understand the pattern of insanity that I think is the base of existence.
UFOs are not just enigmatic; they are examples of the schizophrenic underpinning that persists in inserting itself in existence.
The encounters of entities, the bizarre, mysterious behavior of UFOs, like quantum particles, show us that life is a mishmash or commonsense and meaning is elusive.
A book I often tout, Human Destiny by Lecomte du Noüy, presents a outline of the meaning of life, our purpose for being.
The book under review in NYRB takes us away from such an outline, as do many tomes, although there is a smidgen of change in scientific thinking about God and the point of our being, much stirred by Stephen Hawking.
Dennett writes that we humans are illusionary, and don’t understand that we are the “products of ‘bottom up’ design, understandable through the theory of evolution by natural selection, rather than ‘top down” design by an intelligent being.” [op cit. Page 32]
But a closer look at the machinations of sea life, plant life, animal life, and insect life, as I often note here, show us that something radically malevolent is intrinsic to that life, something that exceeds a mindless ramble that is natural selection.
And UFOs, one of many sources of insight, when looked at in depth and with a gestaltian view, shows us that reality is, in toto, mad, insane.
And that insanity is purposeful, full of intent, psychopathic, not chaotic or random.
The reviewer of philosopher Dennett’s book presents Dennett’s view on consciousness which I will eschew for this posting (but may attend to upcoming).
My point is that science continues to find proof of an underlying intelligence to life but leads us astray with its pronouncement(s) that an underlying intelligence has nothing do with natural selection or Darwinian evolution or anything else relative to our reality (quantum physics, the cosmos, et al.), the Big Bang being the greatest fiction foisted upon us.
While UFOs are a fringe study for ufological nerds, the topic is rife with examples that tell us something is amiss in the world, and it’s not only humans but everything that has existed and exists: creation is a madness, brought about by an insane intelligence and UFOs are but one aspect of that omnipotent insanity.
