Jeff Wells’ précis of the history of America since about 1947, from his ongoing, WAY out of the box blog Rigorous Intuition.
Included below the fold are a few snippets from the post. He is synthesizing the various strands of inside and outside American history into a most valuable tapestry on his blog.
And true, too.
Think of 1947, the year of Aleister Crowley’s death. The Paperclip Nazis were content to be working again. The father of American rocket science and the founder of Scientology were making magick in the Mojave desert in order to trigger apocalypse. Meanwhile, the modern UFO phenomenon exploded in the Western skies with the Kenneth Arnold sighting, Roswell (largely misinformation, but still significant for being misinformation), Maury Island and Tacoma, the latter two involving alleged retrieval of “saucer debris” by Fred Crisman and Guy Bannister respectively. Bannister of course is better known for his New Orleans’ stewardship of Lee Harvey Oswald, while Crisman was one of the first persons called by Clay Shaw after hearing the news that he was a target of Jim Garrison’s investigation, and was himself subpoenaed.
Do you know why, and do you know what this is they can’t see? It’s the dark matter. It’s the universe most people are blind to, but which explains the universe they inhabit. It’s the black thread that holds the visible light like dew on a web. That’s parapolitics. That’s para-everything. It’s the night vision goggles through which the rationalists and the self-identifying skeptics never peer. To them, the darkness is contentless void. But it isn’t. And any meaningful estimate of the situation, 2006, needs to account for it.
There it is.
Wake up and smell the strangeness.
