Marella and I discussed the implications of Dark Matter hunting and the 'poking of dragons' which the current scientific scrambling for 'facts' represents. My belief, and hers by all accounts, is that the surge of exploration into Dark Materials is stirring up consequences which are given no thought, let alone credence, by the seekers and those who have a vested interest in the answers. For decades now, the hunt for the elusive neutrino has been spawning elaborate complexes to house the test equipment necessary for high-energy physics experiments to take place, complexes which keep getting bigger and more complex. The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) may have brought us face to face with the Higgs boson but there is no telling what kind of discontent it may have stirred in the quantum fields.
There are many facilities around the world which raise the eyebrows of those that know about them, the most obvious example of which is HAARP - and even putting that word into a Blog is likely to have me tracked down by the agencies of 'intelligence'. So often when one puts forward a suggestion that governments may be interfering with our mentalities and our habits of life for their own nefarious purposes, the response is, "No, they're not that clever." I have heard this response so many times, from so many otherwise intelligent people, that I do wonder sometimes if that phrase in itself is not an example of subliminal control.
Human beings are not a stupid species. Chickens and sheep, on the other hand, may be counted as intellectually challenged. The former is connected with cowardice, the latter with a tendency to follow whatever may be leading at the time. Either could be construed as remotely counter-productive, if not dangerous, and traipsing blindly after leaders motivated by fear may well find us all plunging our toes into some very hot water indeed, along with several bucketfuls of farmyard poo.
The battle, if one can call such an invisible and esoteric game of counter- and sub-plot a 'battle', has been brewing a long time, and before long it will reach a head. For many years now I've been 'seeing it coming', and said with unequivocal certainty that the only thing we can possibly do to maintain a survivable equilibrium is to keep our heads while all around are losing theirs. So don't lose yours. Hold it high, think for yourself, avoid flock mentalities and easy assumptions. The game is played in deadly earnest, and we'll all do well to pick our sides early and stay loyal to common sense, wherever it may be found.
