It is a frustrating thing to know something and not be able to share it with others. Often times I feel the inner drive (as, I’m sure, do many “truthers”) that compels me to impart information to others. The frustration is most obvious when it falls at the feet of those who don’t care or cannot see. It takes a tolerant person to look inside oneself, rise above such feelings and move on.
Not everybody operates from this standpoint though. Circumstances dictate all manner of motivations and outcomes. A person who is “in the thick” of history usually has no such luxuries. This was driven home to me last night upon hearing the passing of Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong. Today we are being presented with an “account of history” that is considered indisputable. Any speculation about the true nature of those infamous lunar missions is largely mocked by many and consigned to the fringes of tin foil hat wearing “conspiracy theorists” – a term which, in this context, is meant in the most derogatory sense. People have said to me, on several occasions, “I suppose you’re one of those loons who think we never went to the moon!?” To which I usually reply, “of course we went to the moon!!” In quieter tones, I also add, “just not in the way you think we did.”
For the benefit of the naysayers, there is a lot more information out there than just photographic anomalies and the practicalities of science and engineering during the 1960s. Although I would be hesitant to say this information is damningly conclusive, it is akin to somebody being sentenced to murdering another with a brick… only to find a DNA laced gun, as well as a knife, rope, etc., at the crime scene. It is perhaps irresponsible to ignore all the available data simply because the circumstances have now become far too contrived to be bothered with.
There has been much speculation about what really went on with the Apollo astronauts. On many occasions, suggestions have been made about some form of mind control having been inflicted upon these individuals. Although it is incredibly difficult to establish this with cold hard facts, several notable mind control researchers have connected a number of NASA operations with the practice. The men themselves have also behaved very strangely during the years since their “moment of glory”. Considering the life affirming nature of such a monumental “journey”, you would think that their accounts would be etched into crystal clarity and delivered with gushing enthusiasm. However, from practically day one, their recollections have often been sedate, emotionless, almost too traumatic to recall, confused and contradictory.
Without going too far off on a tangent, I also believe that the “Stanley Kubrick” factor is incredibly difficult to ignore. I have sat on the fence regarding this issue until quite recently. It does appear more and more likely that he knew a hell of a lot about what was ‘really’ going on in the grand scheme of things. With this in mind, it is possible that the extensive research available (relating to Kubrick and his possible association to the Apollo missions) needs to be taken a little more seriously.
I feel quite ambivalent about the death of Neil Armstrong. Whilst I don’t wish to take anything
away from his memory and the importance he obviously holds for so many people, I also feel sad for other reasons. It is clear that he was a different creature to his fellow astronauts. Unlike Buzz Aldrin (who became a media darling) and other astronauts like Edgar Mitchell (who has flip-flopped all over the place regarding the hidden nature of the space exploration programme), Armstrong largely shunned the spotlight - becoming somewhat reclusive. He often appeared ill at ease with the mantle he had been forced to carry. Although it may be a controversial thing to say, I am glad that he no longer has to carry the burden of knowledge that may have troubled him.
Of all the men involved, I always felt that he might have been the one to one day (perhaps in his twilight years) “spill the beans”. With his passing, this now appears impossible. I’m not
sure why I considered this possible… just a (possibly misguided) feeling I’ve often had. Now that he is gone we find ourselves, perhaps, further away from knowing than ever before. The unfortunate truth about the mainstream excuse that is laughingly called: “the force of history”, is that such things are inevitable… which really does p*** me off sometimes!
You may say that addressing this matter in the manner I have, is incredibly tasteless. I mean no disrepect. Despite my beliefs about the accepted version of the "space programme", I would like to put it in a much more personal context.
I'm not ashamed to admit, irrespective of my stance on the nature of the “Moon landings”, that Armstrong was something of an inspiration for me. Even if he never went to the Moon, the mere notion of leaving the Earth should give anybody pause to think. Although I am becoming more acquainted with the true nature of our existential “reality” construct, I still sometimes struggle with the notion and readily find myself slipping back into the illusion. The most enlightened folk out there, can’t deny that this happens… despite their protestations to the contrary.
However, within our “reality”, the idea of escaping our terrestrial confines and the possibility of having a “little wander out there”, can be the first baby steps (as it was for me) into a larger realisation. Neil Armstrong was a symbol for this. As a child, these stories encouraged me to look up, far more than keep looking down. Whatever I may have come to believe subsequently, I still maintain that’s not such a bad way to look at things! In a strange way, I owe that to Neil Armstrong... and although it may seem like a contradiction, I am eternally thankful for it.
Until next time.
