On the Dark Side of the Moon

by rthieme on May 22, 2001

hal-1 I’ve been lucky. Mentors and friends have shown up at critical moments of my life to offer conversations that help me find my way. You’re never too old, I guess, to receive some balance and perspective from a wiser elder.

Even when the conversation sounds a little wild.

The talk at the coffee shop this morning was about the price of gas and the Milwaukee Bucks winning the semi-finals. In contrast, our conversation might have sounded – well, highly unlikely. Some might have said it sounded crazy. But then, that anything at all even exists is highly unlikely, and what passes for sanity today will sound crazy in a few years. The dialogue started when I mentioned a conversation with one of the heads of the remote viewing program conducted by the CIA. Remote viewing is clairvoyance executed through structured protocols that build in feedback and accountability. Some remote viewers have remarkable results. On a recent trip to Washington I spoke with an executive whose company had evaluated the program for the CIA. “The results may not be strictly quantifiable,” he said, “but there’s definitely something there.”

Remote viewing was practiced by the NSA as well. One of their targets was the dark side of the moon.

“Why would you target the dark side of the moon if you were not looking for an alien presence?”

Not so fast, said my mentor with a smile. There are other reasons for wanting to know what’s happening on the dark side of the moon.

There are weapons platforms in space, he said, that need to be stealthy. They’re often disguised as junk. The trick is to hide the platform. The farther out it is, the better. The dark side of the moon would be a good place to look for hidden weapons.

But let’s connect some dots and go out a little further, he said.

He mentioned a physicist with a government contract to explore faster than light propulsion systems and exotic forms of energy. He’s working on black hole physics, he said. Now, think about it: five, ten years ago, we didn’t even know if black holes were real. Now they’ve been observed, we’ve seen event horizons with the Hubble, the physics is no longer theoretical. But because of some of the potential applications, you won’t hear much about it.

Applications like what?

Like Stargate might be closer than you think.

We don’t have to go the speed of light, either, although my friend thinks that we can, inside the bubble. When people describe some unconventional flying objects, they talk about this kind of stretching out experience – you see the vehicle and it doesn’t just disappear, it elongates like a rubberband and then it’s gone. It looks like it approaches the speed of light. There’s serious research going on in that direction. We’re looking for the windows in the black holes. They may be periodic, they may not be stable for a long time, they may come and go, but by virtue of what shines through those unstable areas – we’re starting to map them now, our radio telescopes are mapping different parts of the galaxy to determine what’s shining through. A higher civilization would have better maps, of course. Then we’ll have a fingerprint. More advanced civilizations will have better fingerprints. They’ll say, “oh that’s that planet” and position something near the hole. And then – they’re here.

He repeated:

They’re here.

Which means we can go there.

So where would you park a weapons platform in space if you wanted to make it stealthy? Remember, we’re working on quantum communication for the battlefield that takes advantage of non-locality. When two particles are entangled, what happens to one happens to the other, whether they’re ten feet or ten galaxies apart. That means left spin right spin – dots and dashes – communication that can’t be jammed or intercepted. Just like remote viewing, which suggests that consciousness too is non-local.

We’re looking at parking weapons platforms a couple of galaxies away. We’re looking at how they get here so we can go there. We’re looking at how to look.

He sipped his latte with obvious relish.

This conversation, I said, would make an interesting column.

Go ahead, write it, he laughed. They’ll just say it’s the feverish dreams of an overworked imagination. Someone wandering too long in the digital wilderness.

You know how effective ridicule is when you can’t provide cover for an operation because too many people know about it. It’s worked with UFOs for fifty years. What does it matter when thousands of people report the same thing if they’re all categorized in the public mind as loonies?

Deception works best when it moves in directions that people already think. Well, people don’t want to think about this. There’s a big psychological protective shield around human beings. It’s almost as if ‘ants don’t know dogs exist’ and don’t want to know. It’s hard to break through that.

Few cultures have successfully engaged with a higher technological civilization and not been undone by it. Aztecs thought the Spanish were some kind of godly being which affected their ability to fight them. The Japanese are the only modern culture I know of that was not advanced technologically but was able to mediate their contact with the west and learn quickly without being destroyed or taken over. It’s the best model we have.

He drained his latte and wiped the froth from his upper lip.

Be sure to put everything in your column: black holes and particle physics, going faster than light, remote viewers targeting the dark side of the moon, weapons platforms in deep space, alien civilizations and how they got here. Don’t leave anything out.

They won’t have to use ridicule, he smiled. You’ll do the job for them.

When he paused, the conversations humming around us resolved into sharper focus: the conference finals, a toddler’s first steps, the blossoming lilacs – the buzzing of twitching antennae processing local reality.

Ants happily not knowing that dogs exist.
