About the recent rise in UFO reports

I've successfully avoided reading almost anything about these military and air traffic-related UFO claims and blurry videos.
My impression is there's nothing there but supreme vagueness. It almost sounds like Space Opera doesn't it. Perhaps they're Marcabian invaders?
The correct response is to "refuse this communication". I believe that is the correct response to most supernatural originations and assertions.

L. Ron Hubbard had an interesting habit. He casually mentioned paranormal things as if they were completely ordinary occurrences. As if he had to deal with these things so often he'd gotten super bored with them. That also discouraged others from asking him questions.

In reality there are absolutely no paranormal anomalies of any sort whatsoever.
None, nada, zilch. And that includes the claims of all religions.
There ARE many illusionary anomalies, however. These are mostly statistical garbage and epiphenomena:

* 1) Near coincidences - the law of large numbers predicts that unlikely events DO happen. So many things of all types are going on that unusual combinations are inevitable. Like when you meet someone you know at a remote place. Mostly, such events are too random to make for good stories.

* 2) Confabulatory enhancements - Unlikely coincidences tend to be (sub)consciously embellished in the telling to make for better stories. Like a dream came true exactly as predicted, while the actual dream was very vague.

* 3) Unknown new effects - these are small and subtle side effects of known physics and unknown psychology that sometimes create the illusion of paranormal forces. They may include false memory effects. A Sea Org auditing session may recover amazingly detailed "recollections" matching the vague records of a deceased former member working at the same Advanced Org thirty years ago.

And now for something really bizarre:
The events described in the OT-III materials really happened! And not just once, but an infinite number of times across the multiverse!
At least according to the Tegmark multiverse theory and the philosophical principle of plenitude, which I believe to be unfortunately true.

Singularity Soon

  1. The only 'paranormal' things I ever experienced have been the opposite: the unexpected amazing consistency of all interconnected events, like a hand reaching across the universe into the deepest part of your head.


The Consistency Mystery

Sea Org members don't have time to think about such things, but there is a strange bias that affects every human even if they believe th...
