Surprise! The E.T.s are Anti-Nukes

Every once in a while I feel the need to report on mysteries other than those related to reincarnation or the afterlife – in this case, a recent press release from the National Press Club is beyond worthy. Is it possible that it won’t be long before actual full disclosure? I am on the edge of seat!… The other implication here is that the pilots of these U.F.O.s are anti-nukes. Wouldn’t it be a pleasant surprise after centuries of assumptions, if the visitors we’ve been awaiting are teachers of peace rather than brutish warlords?

Ex-military men say unknown intruders have monitored and even tampered with American nuclear missiles

Group to call on U.S. Government to reveal the facts

WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Witness testimony from more than 120 former or retired military personnel points to an ongoing and alarming intervention by unidentified aerial objects at nuclear weapons sites, as recently as 2003. In some cases, several nuclear missiles simultaneously and inexplicably malfunctioned while a disc-shaped object silently hovered nearby.  Six former U.S. Air Force officers and one former enlisted man will break their silence about these events at the National Press Club and urge the government to publicly confirm their reality.

One of them, ICBM launch officer Captain Robert Salas, was on duty during one missile disruption incident at  Malmstrom Air Force Base and was ordered to never discuss it…

The hereafter…

Whatever you may believe about reincarnation, near death experiences, or NDEs, are incredibly well documented. Clint Eastwood’s film The Hereafter covers some of this territory –

Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter considers the possibility of an afterlife with tenderness, beauty and a gentle tact. I was surprised how enthralling I found it. I don’t believe in woo-woo, but there’s no woo-woo anywhere to be seen.

It doesn’t even properly suppose an afterlife, but only the possibility of consciousness after apparent death. This is plausible. Many near-death survivors report the same memories, of the white light, the waiting figures and a feeling of peace.

The subject lends itself to sensationalizing and psychic baloney. Eastwood has made a film for sensitive, intelligent people who are naturally curious about what happens when the shutters close. He tells three primary stories. Their three central characters meet at the end, but please don’t leap to conclusions. This is not one of those package endings where all the threads come together in a Coincidence that makes everything clear. They meet in a perfectly explicable and possible way, they behave as we feel they might, and everything isn’t tied up neatly. Instead, possibilities are left open in this world, which is as it should be, because we must live the lives we know and not count on there being anything beyond the horizon…

Beyond cyborgs: Will synthetic lifeforms reincarnate?

Beyond the obvious legal and moral and cultural controversies regarding a certain lab created synthetic microbe called Synthia, the success of such a man-made life form evokes fascinating spiritual questions. The DNA in this tiny creature was hand stitched in its entirety from scientist-created bits. What will happen when our human DNA is eventually re-created molecule by molecule in the lab, resulting in a complete living and breathing person?  This would not be a clone per say, but a completely synthetic human being. Beyond cyborg, as cyborgs contain mechanical or robotic parts along with the biological, and even far beyond babies created from eggs or sperm grown from stem cells. The DNA of these beings would have never, at any point, been human.

Synthetic human blood is already a reality.

Will scientists be able to resist such a Frankensteinian act of creation? Will cultural morality and global law bind them? Will we as humans be able to reach a level of moral maturity that can manage the ethical, spiritual, and cultural subtleties of such a “being” walking in our midst?

Without direct proof, it has proven difficult for many of us to accept even the possibility that we humans have souls: would be able to conceive of these synthetic humans as entities that contain souls of their own?

…And, if they are bearing souls, would these people enter into the cycle of death and rebirth with us, and if so, will they then actually become us?
