Rapture & Disclosure

I dined at a Mexican restaurant last Saturday night. The platter that arrived at my table was accompanied by an ice-cold Negra Modelo. I ate and drank way too much… way too late in the evening.

I woke up around 4am in a cold sweat. It was one of those situations in life where one doesn’t know whether it’s better to throw it up, shit it out or walk it off. I chose to step out on the deck and take in a little fresh air.

The view from my deck overlooks our valley… twinkling lights of the city just beginning to wake up for a sleepy Sunday. Only the brightest of stars still showed in the night sky as daylight approached. Calm… quiet… beautiful.

As the early morning breeze cooled and dried the perspiration on my brow, and as my fevered head cleared, my thoughts drifted to… “hey… it’s Sunday morning and the world didn’t end.”  Thank you world… for small favors. It appears as though we survived another prophecy of doom in spite of ourselves. Guess we were lucky that the volcano blew in Iceland, relieving the Earth pressures that otherwise would surly have resulted in devastating earthquakes each hour… following each time zone… until we were all done in. Whew… dodged another bullet!

As our Islamic brothers say… God is great!

Sunday night I watched an interesting (mock) documentary on the NatGeo channel cheerfully entitled “When Aliens Attack.” Here is a blurb from the NatGeo website…

"What if an extra-terrestrial force attacked Earth? What might that look like and how will the people of Earth respond? Consulting a cast of world-renowned scientists, survival experts and defense experts, this two-hour special, Alien Invasion explores this frightening scenario. Experts reveal what could motivate alien invaders to attack Earth, and speculate on how the attack might play out -- the strategy alien invaders might use and the most effective ways for humans to respond. Well turn to science and history to figure out what works. Well show how humanity can survive this ultimate test".

As Alice explained in reference to Wonderland… Curiouser & Curiouser.

So now the National Geographic channel is prepping the American television watching public on an alien invasion scenario… This was as novel to me as President Reagan’s alien speech to the United Nations back in 1987.

So within 24 hours my (and perhaps your) consciousness is presented with the prospect of the end of the world and alien invasion. The explicit message from “when aliens attack” was… whether we are faced with an alien threat, or natural disaster… we need to be prepared. And that the preparations for either an alien attack or natural disasters, such as are occurring around the planet as we speak, are virtually the same.

Interestingly, the experts quoted on the documentary emphasized that high technology may not be of value, rather soft or old technology… flashlights… drinking water… food supplies… personal preparedness. They concluded that in the end… the perseverance of the human spirit would be the deciding factor in our survival.

So is all the current media surrounding continued natural disasters and the end of the world and alien threat… & for that matter, television’s renewed interest in Sci Fi entertainment, (ie: The Event)… the beginning of what some have predicted… the careful planning and preparations for what has come to be known as...


Or maybe it was just a matter of too much Mexican food… Curiouser & Curiouser…

5/24 Sync alert…

While viewing last night’s episode of “The Event” (see reference above), I was pleased to see that one of our local volcanic peaks… Mount Shasta… made a cameo appearance. Within the plot of the TV series, Shasta was erupting due to alien manipulation. Earthquakes and other generic natural disasters were occurring all over the planet. This plot line could not tie in better with “current events” described above…

… and curiouser!
