THE JESTER

Peter J. Carroll's
SPECULARIUM



"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

"Theosophists have guessed at the awesome grandeur of the cosmic cycle wherein our world and human race form transient incidents. They have hinted at strange survivals in terms which would freeze the blood if not masked by a bland optimism. But it is not from them that there came the single glimpse of forbidden eons which chills me when I think of it and maddens me when I dream of it. That glimpse, like all dread glimpses of truth, flashed out from an accidental piecing together of separated things ..." -- H.P. Lovecraft - 1926

Gary Gene Ford [1946-2013] wrote:

A MORE Important matter is in a paper earlier this year, which found, on analysis of Arctic Ice Melting, that 70-80% of the extra melting appeared to be caused by SOOT Particles, largely from China, India and the Malay-Indonesian archipelago (where last, vast forest and forest clearance purposefully set fires burn seasonally every year for the last decade or so), and that a mere 5 ppb (parts per Billion!) pf Soot found on the surface of Ice could explain that 70-80% of extra Ice Melting. "BY DEFAULT" remaining "extra melting" was left to CO2 increases, but should instead be a variety of factors, including a small increase in the so-called "solar constant" - not so 'constant' after all! - which NASA has seen since the 1980's, especially when the extra super duper extended Solar Flare and Coronal Mass Ejection events plus more than usual Solar Wind and X-ray activities since 2000 are also factored in as additional extra energy sources, along with any putative effects of increased atmospheric CO2, N2O, CH4, NH3, etc, "Greenhouse Gases".

I remember Greenhounds supporting Diesel over Gasoline Engines in the late 1980's, "because they use less carbon to get the same work done", then smirkingly announcing when I reminded them of great gobs of air polluting SOOT as well as SO2 which often burning of CHEAP DIESEL, "Well, that's EVEN Less CO2 to be made (the soot), and SO2 COOLS The Earth, you know!" - completely oblivious, as they usually have seemed since the 1960's to me, of toxic threats to human, in contrast to wild, life, as with their ignoring of Lead in Gasoline, Nickel from Diesel, and CO2, CO1, Soot from Big Forest Fires purposefully set in the Tropical Forests every year during the Tropical Ape Forest Clearance Projects going on around the Tropical World.

My take on the Cause of "Weather Change" (I refuse to say it as 'Climate Change' because there IS NO "Earth Climate" but many, many, local and regional Climates instead, over numerous localities and time frames, in flux, now and in the near as well as distant Past - note Repeated Drought/Wet Cycles which took UP and Down the Mayan Civilization, and long before them, the Moche 'Spider People' Civilization of Western Coastal South America):

AS HUMAN POPULATION INCREASES ...

(1) Larger and larger Populations require
      More and More LAND to be taken from
      Nature and put under Cultivation for Food;

(2) The Agricultural Transformation of such Land
      significantly changes Natural Management of
      Solar Heat and Water (which through latent
      heat affects Energy Storage and Energy Flux);

(3) Which items, (1,2) above, alter local and regional
      Weather Patterns, thereby affecting Global Average
      Winds and Ocean Currents, Temperatures, Industry,
      Soot and Gas, as well as Heat Releases, Sinks and
      Storage, increasingly Changing Weather Patterns;

(4) INCREASINGLY SO (1-3) above,
      as Population Sizes continue to rise!

SO THAT ...

(5) (1,2,3,4) above may be SUFFICIENT on their OWN
      to Explain Most of the "Global Weather Changes" of
      the sort we have been experiencing for the last two or
      three decades, with some contributions ALSO from and
      by NATURAL VARIATIONS (such as had befallen both
      Mayan and Moche Peoples) with some possible Changes
      NOT ONLY in Gross Solar Energy Output but also with
      Ionospheric and Upper Stratosphere Disrupting Solar CME,
      Surges in Solar Wind and Solar X-ray Flashes/output over
      the last half dozen or years.

Global Fossil Fuel Burning CO2 releases may be contributory, but then so must be Tropical Forest Clearing and Burning which moves SO MUCH Carbon in Biomass and Soil into the Atmosphere to become CO2, as well as changing the Thermodynamical Nature of the dispossessed Old Growth Forest Land, that restoration may take CENTURIES if Man were to disappear today, but may perhaps never occur due to replacement of former Biota, both animals as well as plants, changed with alternate species, many of which were specifically brought by the Hand of Man.

As to the latter, consider the introduction of Canadian Beavers by the Peron Gov't in 1947, which have been transforming some of the major Islands of Argentinean Tierra del Fuego by massive Beaver Population increases, rampant tree felling, Island Hopping (by swimming in the cold Ocean), dam building, and resulting Pond, Marsh and Mud Flat formation. Thus, NOT merely the Introduction of Food and Ornamental Botanicals, but also the introduction of Animals, can transform the Land and Change its apparent, even its thermal, properties.

I think the Greenhounds should actually go back to their academic kennels to release their precious CO2 Greenhouse Talk Flatulence squarely amongst and for the benefit of their Wonderful, Wonderfully Collegial, Esteemed Academic PEERS, and leave off social engineering and their technocratic, attempted, efforts at International. Coups d'Etats!

Until they understand things of Nature to far greater detail and completeness than they do, feeding of equations and presumed methods of interaction to Weak Human Models for Nature, which should include Living Factors, into Systems dumbed down from the actual complexity of Nature, through Numerical Computer Programs, which last require multitudes of trials and variations of parameters, in run after run, to "zero in" to the "ball park" of measured data, thereby requiring Super Fast if Simplistic, Critically Stupid, 'Super Computer' Installations infested with Computer 'Scientists' and even Consulting Numericists and Theoreticians as well necessary programmers, operators, model runners, and technicians, which last as usual do the actual real works at low wages slaved to orders from aristocracy bent intellectual overlords many of which "would be King" but certainly wouldn't refuse any lucrative Government PAID-For Job, Political Office, or even Dictatorial Power in those Human Activities for they may feel Authoritatively Superior by Inclination/Ability to supervise for the Glory, Fame and Money involved, we should not expect too much too realistically useful from such Men and Women and the Outputs from their Intellectual Contraption Machines.

Atmospheric CO2 Records from Sites in
the SIO Air Sampling Network (NDP-001)
Abstract:

These data sets provide modern records of atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) from current monitoring stations in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's (SIO's) air sampling network. These time series are frequently used in global-change research. The data records include tables, graphs, discussions of methods, trends in the data, and references to literature providing further information. Data are available for the following stationary sites: Alert, Northwest Territories, Canada; Baring Head, New Zealand; Barrow, Alaska, USA; Cape Kumukahi, Hawaii; Cape Matatula, American Samoa; Christmas Island, Kiribati; Kermadec Islands, Raoul Island; La Jolla Pier, California, USA; Mauna Loa, Hawaii, USA; and South Pole, Antarctica. The data files contain monthly and annual atmospheric CO2 concentrations derived from continuous air sampling at the top of four 7-m towers and one 27-m tower at Mauna Loa and from air flask samples from the other stations. The Mauna Loa atmospheric CO2 measurements constitute the longest continuous record of atmospheric CO2 concentrations available in the world. It is a reliable indicator of the regional trend in the concentration of atmospheric CO2 in the middle layers of the troposphere and is critical to CO2-related research.

Abiotic Methane Synthesis:
Caveats and New Results   by Zou, R.; Sharma, A.

http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2005AGUFM.B23D..06Z
The role of mineral interaction with geochemical fluids under hydrothermal conditions has invoked models of geochemical synthesis of organic molecules at deep crustal conditions. Since Thomas Gold's (1992) hypothesis of the possibility of an abiotic organic synthesis, there have been several reports of hydrocarbon formation under high pressure and temperature conditions. Several previous experimental studies have recognized that small amounts of methane (and other light HC compounds) can be synthesized via catalysis by transition metals: Fe, Ni (Horita and Berndt, 1999 Science) and Cr (Foustavous and Seyfried, 2004 Science). In light of these pioneering experiments, an investigation of the feasibility of abiotic methane synthesis at higher pressure conditions in deep geological setting and the possible role of catalysis warrants a closer look. We conducted three sets of experiments in hydrothermal diamond anvil cell using FeO nanopowder, CaCO 3 and water at 300^o - 600^o C and 0.5 - 5 GPa : (a) with stainless steel gasket, (b) gold-lined gasket, and (c) gold-lined gasket with added Fe and Ni nanopowder. The reactions were monitored in-situ using micro-Raman spectroscopy with 532nm and 632nm lasers. The solids phases were characterized in-situ using synchrotron X-ray diffraction at CHESS-Cornell and quenched products with an electron microprobe. Interestingly, a variable amount of hydrocarbon was observed only in runs with stainless steel gasket and with Fe, Ni nanoparticles. Experiments with gold-lined reactors did not show any hydrocarbon formation. Added high resolution microscopy of the products and their textural relationship within the diamond cell with Raman spectroscopy data show that the hydrocarbon (methane and other light fractions) synthesis is a direct result of transition metal catalysis, rather than wustite - calcium carbonate reaction as recently reported by Scott et al (2004, PNAS). The author will further present new results highlighting abiotic methane synthesis using a various metal oxides and sulfides without transition metal catalysis under conditions simulating deep crust that show syngenetic methane formation with carbonates. http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2005AGUFM.B23D..06Z

"...Continuity of Consciousness, by definition, presupposes that the perceptive core tracks continuously across all parallel realities... One femtosecond is to a second as one second is to 32.6 million years! The 'Parallel Universe' theory (Many-Worlds Theory) is a defunct bastardization of an ill-perceived anthropocentric misunderstanding of the double-slit experiment, [Collapse of a Quantum Wave Function into a Measurable Particle w/ History]: In the 'Many Worlds' theory of quantum physics, popularized by David Deutsch and others, (daviddeutsch.physics.ox.ac.uk/), our conscious selves inhabit an infinite realm of parallel universes: a 'multiverse.' Now, over the many years wherein we've all made countless decisions both conscious and automatic, and the countless times we've all pondered ending our own miserable myriad existences, what if we actually did? Would it, therefore, seem like a cruel fate for consciousness to have no final escape from awareness, perception, and embeddedness...? And what if it's true?! Whooooooooooshhh!!!! Is everyone the same biospheric personage? Are we dispersed across an undifferentiated light-cone of ultra-dimensional wavelike potentiality in nature, and only specified in particularity as a 3D lifeform? (tony5m17h.net/ManyWorlds.html) Who-are-we to suffer such an endless fate? And what does it mean?!! What if there is a seamless continuity to sentience, so that no matter how many times you actually 'die,' your multiversal "self" continues uninterrupted?" [circa: Sept 9, '01]

The Stargate Conspiracy
by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince

(Excerpt} .. .] ]]
    What any kind of fundamentalism does quite deliberately and explicitly is create divisions in society: Them and Us, the Light and the Dark, the Righteous and the Wicked, the Nazis and the Jews, the Israelis and the Palestinians ... There is no room for rationality, intellectual questioning, challenge to the status quo, progress. More significantly, fundamentalists are easy to control -- and their leaders have absolute power.

Control of the masses is ultimately what this is about. The idea that powerful and incredibly advanced beings will come to snatch us from the brink of disaster and make the world a better place for the future is, of course, enormously attractive. It sounds too good to be true. It may give us comfort and hope -- but it comes at a price. Belief in the space gods and the heightened expectancy of their benign intervention undermines our collective self-esteem. It implies that the human race was given civilization because it was too feeble to civilise itself, and that it has needed subtle guidance from the extraterrestrials throughout history. Now that humankind has really made a thorough mess of things, its only hope of salvation is to await the return of the gods to rectify the situation.

The image it promotes of mankind is essentially negative. It is basically the same message that made Christianity such a success as a state-sanctioned religion, taking away the autonomy of the individual and halting intellectual, scientific and cultural progress for centuries. The Christian message maintained that we were all born sinners and live only by God's grace; our only hope is the promise of post-mortem bliss, provided that we surrender to the dictates of the priesthood.

The end result is a population of willing victims, brainwashed into believing they are little better than worms, at the mercy of God or space beings, without means of salvation except through them -- or, of course, their human agents. The members of the tragic cult Heaven's Gate, who happily took poison, represent an extreme form of this mode of thought: life as a mere human on Earth is worth nothing compared to escape in a spaceship, even if you have to commit suicide to reach it.

The enormous potential of space gods or UFO cults should not be underestimated. As the ever-perceptive Jacques Vallee writes in his
'Messengers of Deception' (1979):

"The group of people who will first manage to harness the fear of cosmic forces and the emotions surrounding UFO contact to a political purpose will be able to exert incredible spiritual blackmail."

Others besides Vallee have realized this. Clearly, although there is no way of knowing all the details, the conspiritors are creating the perfect conditions for something to happen to effectively give them control over the masses -- over us. As we have seen, this could amount to the return of the ancient gods, or -- much more likely -- merely empty promises and cynically manufactured expectations.

The potential for population control is disturbing enough ordinarily, but taken together with the hysteria of endtimes expectation surrounding the Millennium, a truly explosive future is, we fear, guaranteed. Again Jacques Vallee gets to the heart of the matter. In 'Revelations' (1992), he writes"

"As we reach the Millennium, the belief in the imminent arrival of extraterrestrials in our midst is a fantasy that is as powerful as any drug, as revolutionary as any delusion that marked the last millennium, as poisonous as any of the great irrational upheavals in history."

Vallee goes on to compare this belief with the ideology of the master race that drove the Nazis to commit their worst atrocities. And in 'Messengers of Deception' he lists six "social consequences" of the hold of the UFO cults. These include:

"The contactee propaganda undermines the image of human beings as masters of their own destiny" and "Contactee philosophies often include belief in higher races and in totalitarian systems that would eliminate democracy."

Once before, a similar millennial mood was successfully harnessed in a way that changed the world: two thousand years ago, in a backwater of the Roman Empire, one man tapped into the prevailing hysterical messianic expectation and the result was Christianity. Theology and personal belief apart, the effect of this was to create generations of happy slaves who believed they came into the world as sinners and required the Church to order every detail of their lives. From that point of view at least, Christianity has been a huge success. But now it is losing its grip, something new, but similar, is required.

Could the early years of the twenty-first century see the emergence of a new Jesus or a new Moses [or a new Mahdi] to make sense of our puny, worthless lives and hand down from above a new set of commandments? Will the prophesied 'return of the Great Initiate' become a reality, thanks to some carefully contrived stage management? This new leader or Messiah figure will be backed by a massive politico-religious movement -- a New World Ordor of zealots -- the infrastructure of which is already in place.

Basically, "life" (sentient organic awareness), is a mystery which no one really comprehends in any way approximating life's totality. Individuals are smart, groups are stupid. Governments are exceptionally stupid. Traditions, particularly ethnic traditions, are rarely useful to the long-term sociobiological welfare of the individual and human species. Ethnic traditions which are exclusive and xenophobic are particularly burdensome to healthy cultural and individual evolution. We will be able to respect ourselves and each other when we as individuals find the courage to think for ourselves, while simultaneously experiencing empathy for others, regardless of perceived differences.

"Notwithstanding, back unto the dim, whisperous reaches of memory, like an ambiguous horizon which recedes in proportion to one's futile pursuit of all imaginary lines, it has long been held that the dominant, sentient species occupying the weary orbs called Chikhai and Chonyid have always been of two distinct minds. A fundamental dichotomy between two schools of thought which has only acquired any symmetry as a recent culmination following strife filled, languishing aeons. Simmering conflicts, political and scientific, eventually stimulated joint, migratory ventures.

One school of thought, the Mythopoeicans, invested their beliefs in the arcane tradition which suggested that their primary world, CHIKHAI, was seeded in prehistory by interstellar nomads from a legendary world called GAIA. The other school, the Pararealists, put forth a sumptious, ontological banquet which included meticulously collected artifacts and archaeological anomalies that suggested (in their minds at least) that life emerged spontaneously from the random interplay of forces and materials which constituted the very essence of the early planet: CHIKHAI.
Surprisingly, this minor discrepency in consensus had far reaching effects on first, the primary world, and subsequent to her moon's colonization, the two worlds together. Thus, this latest migration highlighted the irrefutable evidence that the spirit of sentience was easily deceived by the conceptual limitations of uncertainty and inseparability, with disasterous repercussions at many a turn, but the overriding will to survive and diversify seemed, ultimately, to transcend the gravitational pull of those twin Strange Attractors: inertia and regression."
