Today, someone filed a complaint about Paratopia to our message board provider for libel and slander. This anonymous person succeeded in shutting down our board for as long as it took us to explain to the company exactly what is going on. What is going on? Well, judging from the posts cited in the complaint, somebody in the Hopkins/Jacobs/hypnosis camp wants to censor us. Every post cited was about Hopkins or Jacobs or hypnosis. And every post cited contained nothing but fact. That is to say, no insults slung or anything like that. Just facts.
There are people in ufology who do not want you to know the facts about the abuse of hypnosis in this field and in particular by these two men over the course of decades. When faced with legitimate scrutiny they behave in the exact manner they whine about government and military establishments behaving: They spread disinformation and they cover up the truth.
Well, the truth is out there, as they say, and we will continue to voice it. We will continue to voice it because what the book-peddling-disguised-as-scientific-research model of ufology obscures is the fact that there is a great mystery underlying this abuse and misdirection for egoic and financial gains.
Need an example? Look no further than this week's episode. You can only have the eye-opening conversations we have when you're willing to wake up in the first place.
Time to wake up, ufology. Time to move on into the new paradigm, which looks suspiciously like the original: unidentified means unidentified.
We will have more to say about this on Sunday's live show at 10pm (EST) here: www.blogtalkradio.com/paratopia
In the meantime....
Paratopia Episode 152: Colin Reid Ruminations
Colin Reid, who did a fascinating 2-part listener episode back when we tried that experiment, returns to Paratopia, this time to be interviewed by the Jeff & Jer. This is one of those mind-opening discussions that taps into just how weird and wild the paranormal and occult are... and yet they both follow the same simple patterns we find in spiritual awakening and both use rather mundane imagery, which somehow--by design or not--stimulates our growth.
