Regarding the previous post about Terrence McKenna:
Mr. McKenna seems like he is coming out of left field, but he is merely (re)stating some of the same things the more woo-woo conspiracy/2012/new-age channeling crowds have been saying. They differ on their interpretation whether it's good or bad, but they seem to agree on some things:
There's "aliens" that live in another dimension and come out of it to interact with people.
There's something big coming in our lifetimes, possibly very soon.
This "something big" will remove a large percentage of the people, either through death or some kind of rapture into this other dimension.
There's a "new order" in store for us as a result of this "something big".
This "new order" alternately involves genetics, or people becoming psychic, or both.
Time is not a linear thing. i.e. all times exist at once.
Space is immaterial.
Everything is connected.
Reality is plastic, I mean it can be altered, including the past.
Attitude is everything.
This canon of beliefs is the core of it. There are other embellishments/flavors, like the Lizard People, the Hopi prophecies, the Book of Revelations, etc. Some people think the aliens are really demons from Satan. Some people like Alex Jones think genetic manipulation is bad and will be or is being forced upon us by misguided eugenicists descended from the Nazis. The McKenna crowd doesn't seem to mind the idea of their progeny becoming other than human. They like to alter their state of mind with DMT, which at sufficient doses specifically creates alien abduction experiences. Jeff Rense has the opposite opinion of the aliens and warns people not to allow these alien beings into their minds, that they're evil. The lady at Sott.net channels an alien that is supposedly herself from the future and makes a distinction between different kinds of aliens.
The "Something Big" varies, depending on who you ask, from the approach of the famed Planet X, an especially large pole shift of the sun, a pole shift of the earth, a comet, a "tsunami" of orgone from the black hole center of the galaxy, mass alien contact, the Illuminati trying to kill everyone, to the Tribulations of the Bible.
If you stick only to evidence that you can observe, you've got draconian laws combined with a massive increase in surveillance, drones and robots of war, underground military bunkers by the dozens, the dollar collapsing possibly by design, FEMA camps, unexplained aerial spraying, GMO's, and civil unrest due to the economy, with a rising alternative press on the Internet and increasing distrust of mainstream media and two-party politics, threatened by proposals of/attempts at censorship. People are becoming dissatisfied with the Federal Reserve Bank - a few people have published exposes of them.
There is a rise in pitch of activity both from the government and from resisters. The ones sounding the alarm are being silenced or going underground. The one guy who was watching HAARP so closely, Dutchsinse, hasn't posted a single thing since his Youtube site got taken down and the DHS started a dossier on him.
You also have these millenarian types believing in Something Big, the Deus Ex Machina that will bring forth by day all the occult secrets of the ages and expose them to the light.
I guess time will tell. We may be scratching our heads in 2013 wondering what all the fuss was. My take on it, is whenever someone proposes to change me without asking me first I get kind of irritated. I don't want to be watched, sprayed, or have my genes changed. I didn't ask for any of that. I don't care if they're an alien or the government or John Jacob Jingle Heimer Schmidt.
