Phasmatis Ex Machina
I was looking over my face book page when I was distracted by a video that looked out of place. I decided to click on it and what I saw had me transfixed. I was held at the edge of my seat because of what I was witnessing. It was a video taken at the Coachella Music conference. The main attraction was a dead rapper. He died 15 years ago in Las Vegas Nevada assassinated by unknown assailants. The rapper even had a conspiracy theory surrounding hos death, including the possibility that he faked his own death to hide from his enemies. There he was on stage with Snoop dog, very much alive. It looked like him. It even sounded like him. People were in tears and cheering when he came on to the stage. They saw his tattooed being shown on his well cut frame – his arms outstretched. He then yelled “You know who I am! Hello Coachella!
It was Tupac Shakur.
Not in the flesh. It was a simulation, a very highly advanced hologram that took the crowd into the uncanny valley and held them spellbound for the moment as people could not believe what they were seeing.
The hologram was almost created to somehow capture a religious experience. We were able to see his body, his tattoos and his arms outstretched like a hip hop messiah telling his posse that he had returned.
I couldn’t help but wonder if this were someone else and if the technology was more advanced, how we would react?
How would react if a man rose up in the crowd, his body and chest showing the marks of his pierced side and the nail prints in his hands and feet— how would we react? Instead of saying “You know who I am” he would say “I am the great I AM” the alpha and omega, your lord and master Emmanuel.
It sounds almost unbelievable, but it can and very well could be possible. It could be done in a place where thousands of people would gather and the image would be as real as we could imagine. It would be powered by a projection computer with all kinds of other programs that are capable of affecting you on a more deep level. Where extremely low frequencies would pulse into your inner core the absolute “truth” that the man or image you are seeing is that of a messiah.
No matter how they portray him, a bearded white God, a Buddha, a blue god with many arms or an alien gray the test would be your faith and your ability to discern what is real and what is a simulation.
Jean Baudrillard , the man who was the father of hyper reality theory believed that hypereality at its most heinous would be the simulation of the return of a deity. That if and when this happens it would be the equivalent of what Nietzsche called “The Murder of God in The marketplace.” It would be god at the hands of the puppet masters the soul of which would be channeled by the shadow masters . It would be literally the Ghost derived from the machine for the pleasure of the elite to control God like a puppet.
Religion and Science as a resource has lost its effectiveness for some people. It doesn’t satisfy people who have the ability to think outside the box. People have slowly become “urban agnostics” even “urban atheists” where publicly they are not religious but privately they pray or practice magic or some other ritualistic endeavor. Many are quick to believe in whatever confirms their suspicions making objective information difficult to obtain.
We are now at a point in our evolution where our knowledge no longer comes from just books and teachers but from electronic flashes and signals that program us into thinking that certain things are fact when in reality they are far from the truth.
A new and sophisticate technological wave of film and Television grabs you on a psycho-cognitive level. It plants memes in your subconscious and then these memes become self-fulfilling prophecies, embraced by the masses and outwardly approximated through the efforts of the elite.
Movies are now in IMAX, 3D , digital, and soon we will no longer need film only, there will be the simulation directly into the mind and with it comes the building blocks for a MATRIX world of illusion that feels and seems real.
The new themes in Science fiction create a viral philosophy that it is useless to resist central, establishment control.
It tends to posit a counter-cultural alternative to such control which is actually a counterfeit, covertly emanating from the establishment itself. Quite literally, heroes creating Villains to glorify themselves. Plots also plant thoughts that environmental catastrophe is as unavoidable as entropy and that extinction will be our evolution and that it is inevitable. Then after all is said and done The “old gods” will return to inhabit the planet because it is our stellar scientific destiny.
Contemporary Protestant and Roman Catholic ‘theologians’–who have become accustomed to follow wherever ‘science’ seems to be leading – speculate in turn in the new realm of ‘exotheology’ (the ‘theology of outer space’) concerning what nature the ‘extraterrestrial’ races might have. It can hardly be denied that the myth behind science fiction has a powerful fascination even among many learned men of our day.
Furthermore, long before TIME Magazine analyzed predictive programming and religion, The respected psychoanalyst, Karl Jung pointed out many years ago that we had lost the ability to believe in salvation through a deity. It would not be too far of a stretch to compare the UFO/Alien/Abduction phenomenon as a modern religious experience. Even if you don’t believe that reports of UFO abduction are true, religious studies are now evolving and within a generation you will probably see the acceptance of an Exotheological Christ and an even more expanding Exotheological religious movement that uses Environmental concerns as the Chief cornerstone of faith. Faith in the planet, faith in the universal whole and faith in an Exotheological dogma which includes Alien beings.
According the Biblical Scholar David Flynn, The God Of Fortresses is a God from Mars. The warlike Extraterrestrial God. The Hebrew word for the God Of Fortresses is Ala Mahozim. In Hebrew the root word for fortresses is mahoz (MARS) which means the “place of strength” or “stronghold”. The Antichrist pays tribute to this “god” which is the Lord of the Sky and space, Baal.
His image shall appear and will be worshipped. It will be powered and encouraged by the elite as a true godlike creature that is part of the great equation of core beliefs. This creature could very well be a simulation, a simulation that will be seen differently by people with different belief systems. However the message will be universal and the attempts to externalize this entity as a God will happen.
The plan is for the Grand Design of God on earth, a global government rooted in a recognition of universal interdependence. It seems more evident to me that our governments cannot stop or protect us from Alien invasion or abduction; they equally cannot protect us from a global catastrophe. So they must find a way to gather the people and give them an event that will shape tem for a new jump into the evolutionary process.
Hologram technology has advanced in such a way that the novelty has been used on CNN and people like Prince Charles have used holograms in order to appear at diplomatic meetings. The technology has the propensity to be abused. Many people believe that the technology could be used to create a staged messianic or alien appearance in the sky. This is known as project Blue Beam.
The uncanny valley hypothesis holds that when robots and other facsimiles of humans look and act like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. All of the women you see here are not human. Some are robots and others are electronic constructs.
As the future moves forward we will find that machines can take on human forms that are uncharacteristically real. Once humans move beyond their repulsion of “life like machines” they reach a point of empathy. As our fears of man and technology diminish we begin to see evolution steer towards Transhumanism .
It is the uncanny valley where scores of rap enthusiasts can watch the resurrection of a fallen messianic rapper. First the y are shocked, but then the sickening feeling slips away and soon the hologram is accepted and eventually there may be tours, concerts featuring the facsimile and no one remembers that it is no longer real.
It becomes the reality.
As we now can see, the signs and symbols are more powerful than the reality. If the signs and symbols can be simulated or exploited, social engineers can control the masses through a series of simulated “miracles.” In the process the “magic” can set the stage for the arrival of a messiah or a transcended being. Created through the processes of special effects and new technologies. Technologies that are indistinguishable from magic.
