Speaking of giant lizards (see next entry)…
I continue to ponder the whole conspiracy theory
that humanity is being enslaved by an alien superpower through a diabolical plan of inbreeding with humans—and has been boinking us for centuries.
While I mostly think of it as a trite science fiction plot, I do love looking at it from a content analysis viewpoint.
The main reason why my buy-in is not immediately likely is that conspiracy theories of life forms enslaving our planet are so philosophically human. We’re projecting into reptilian aliens what we would do to some other poor schmuck of a planet if we had half a chance. Say that we discovered some other oil rich planet inhabited by a race of peace-loving beings and that we were technologically skilled enough to get there with a fleet of flying oil tankers. Would we the corporate nation try to steal their oil and enslave their people?
I see people salivating just at the thought.
One problem I have always had with futuristic science fiction movies like Star Trek
is that no matter how technologically advanced the people get through the centuries, they’re still playing bang-bang, you’re dead!
They can travel at warp speed but they can’t master street violence. I absolutely do not buy the argument that violence is human nature. It is conditioned nature.
So I find it hard to believe that there is a race of people advanced enough to enslave a planet who would really want to enslave a planet. If they had advanced enough to control a place, couldn’t they take a more creative approach to solving their problems than what amounts to interplanetary child abuse?
What I have so far found lacking in the material (and admittedly I have not gone very deep into it) is corroboration from the near-death experience literature. While it’s fairly common to read accounts about people who took space voyages while out of their bodies during an NDE or an OBE, and while it is also common to hear about people who have seen into the future, I have not heard anyone talk about this reptilian conquest of our planet.
The NDE phenomenon intrigued me because even though experiences are different, meaning that they are very subjective, there seems to be a big picture consistency to the accounts. But I have not read anything where some loving being of light said, “There’s a reptilian race attempting to enslave your planet. Don’t pay them any mind.”
My next big question about these giant lizards is this—are they bound by the same law of karma as we are? If they are, then they are piling on a huge cartload of karmic baggage. You just don’t enslave people and get off free.
Then, of course, I would want to know if the reptilian beings die, and if so, what happens to them when they do? Do they come under the visage of the same God we do? Are they supposed to be evolving into beings of light, too? Do they have souls? Do they have their own angels? Blah, blah, blah.
If you let your imagination run wild, which is one of my specialties, you can create some intriguing parallels here. As people make up scary stories about how some superior race could make monkeys out of us mere humans, it seems no different than how we breed animals to serve our needs. An enslaving reptilian race would give us the opportunity to experience how our big companies treat cattle, hogs, chickens, turkeys, etc by giving us the treatment we give. From all the stories I hear about people and their jobs, it sounds as if most of us are pretty enslaved already. How many of us have the opportunity to do work that we can unequivocally say is healthy to humanity and to the planet? How many of can say we know that what we do is done with the highest integrity?
It seems to me as if we project into the reptilian aliens those qualities we hate (and probably deny seeing) in ourselves and in our own society.
I have often wondered about the design of nature here on this planet where most of nature is involved in a constant feeding frenzy. Eat, eat, eat. I suppose in some grand picture it is fair and just, but I feel sorry for salmon, say, who are returning home to spawn. The whole trip is an amazing odyssey, and what happens to them? Bears. Waterfalls. Humans. Maybe even giant lizards.
We take for granted that we are on top of the food chain, but maybe that’s just here on this planet. Maybe in a bigger scheme, we are someone else’s salmon.
To me the giant lizard story is the whole Satan myth rewritten for a different audience. We wear the white hats and the giant lizards wear the black hats—er, black horns.
It is easy to see, however, how enslaved we already are and how corporate entities continue to gain power over the people. Whether that enslavement smells of lizard breath is another story.
