Synthetic Synchronicity, Surveillance State Advertising or Pure Coincidence?

At the end of a lunch meeting today, I mentioned UT Professor Dr. Pennebaker and his textual analysis work. Within an hour and a half of that conversation, Facebook puts this “Suggested Post” in my mobile fb feed:

Lecture: James W. Pennebaker, “Expressive Writing and Health”

Public · Hosted by Humanities Institute at The University of Texas at Austin

I’ve not been performing recent searches for the unique name of Pennebaker so I don’t think this is a case of algorithms predicting things to put in my path but… perhaps so.

FLASHBACK: My first experience of this phone / advertising / synthetic synchronicity phenomenon, circa Thanksgiving 2011:

…so riddle me this … GPS data mining / colocating for cross-platform advertising? …

This day before turkeyday I was at a relative’s house. They had just gotten new hardwood floors. We talked about it a lot. I was there less than 24 hours. Next morning I am leaving and begin the drive to other relatives house. I am listening to Pandora in the car on my phone and an advert I’ve never heard before comes on.

It was for the same kind of hardwood flooring! And NO I’d not searched for the info on my phone or otherwise.

. . . and another circa 2014 and shared again circa 2017:

 

“Is this real or simulated?”

“True” Internet synchronicity is harder and harder to discern because of the beast-system information trawling surveillance state.

… and …

Diana – just to be clear, I was referencing a “synthetic synchronicity” moment I experienced back in December 2014 …

“Here’s to Jacques Vallee’s Melchizedek Moment in Messengers of Deception and my moment-a-go realization of the beast-system’s technological adaptation / adoption of the synchromystic associative cosmic bulletin board conspiracy gnosis of the UFO’s coincidence matrix … @BIBENDUM BIBENDUM BIBENDUM”

… and …

“I was trying to encapsulate my sense that our new internet marketing mechanisms have duplicated the synchronicity engineering that Vallee suggests might be part of the mechanisms of the cosmos allowing interaction / cocreation between mind and everything else. Yesterday morning I had commented on my friend Mack White’s posting of several Michelin Man / Bibendum images and then later that night on a random webpage I visited the cookie-detecting / facebook enabled targeted advert on the sidebar was my new avatar: an advert for Michelin tires featuring Bibendum himself making a “thumbs-up” gesture. It really felt like a significant synch for me at that moment – DESPITE my knowing full well the likely advertising mechanisms operating behind the scenes to make it happen. So basically a modern technological mechanism that approximates the possibly innate nature of Universe as described by Jacques Vallee as the cosmic bulletin board / associative universe that “reads” our “intentions” or desires to be connected to certain things / information.”

. . . and another example circa 2015:

This has been increasingly happening to me …

So last night I spoke of spray foam insulation to my wife within earshot of our phones. And this is what I see in my FuckBook news stream this morning…

“Telepathic Lady” – song inspired by legend of Maria Orsic and Nazi UFOs

“Telepathic Lady” – song inspired by legend of Maria Orsic and Nazi UFOs

Mike Watt talks with his guest, Daniel of Dallas band “The Fumes,” about his song “Telepathic Lady” that was inspired by the legends of Maria Orsic, the “German UFO Specialist” from World War II. Discussion begins around the 1 hour 36 minute mark within the March 27th edition of TWFPS – The Watt From Pedro Show. A great episode with a wide variety of musical soundscapes.

Here is the song, Telepathic Lady. More informational links below…

Maria Orsic (Orsitsch) (@AnomalyArchives.org)

Tim Callahan says:

“Yeah, the Haunebu is part of an elaborate mythos to some degree created by Neo-Nazi groups, such as the Tempelhoffgesellschaft (“Temple Court Society”). This involves the assertion that the original Aryans came from a planet orbiting the star Aldeberan and that they established a colony on Earth — the Sumerians — who were the ancestors of the modern Germans.

Part of this mythos involves Maria Orsitch and the Vril Society, supposedly the evil geniuses behind Hitler’s rise to power. Though Maria and the Vril Society were the creations of Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier in their 1960 book “The Morning of the Magicians,” the so-called History Channel ran a documentary about the centrality of the Vril Society and their influence of Heinrich Himmler.

In point of fact, the only historical basis for the Vril Society was a passing reference in a 1949 article by Willy Ley titled “Pseudoscience in Naziland”, to a society in pre-WW II Germany that was searching for vril (a supposed source of great psychic power invented by Bulwer Lytton in his novel “The Coming Race”). Maria Orsitch (also spelled Orsic) seems to have been invented out of whole cloth by Pauwels and Bergier.”

Jack Brewer Nails It with his latest article: Roswell Slides – It’s All Over but the Accountability

The Best and Latest Appropriate Response to the (NOT) Roswell Slides Debacle… from Jack Brewer:

Some excellent quotes:

More aspects of the mummy saga quickly fell into place, but beWITNESS promoter Jaime Maussan rejected the data at every turn. Don Schmitt published an apology for his participation in the event, but abruptly retracted it and continued promoting the story of the slides at events such as a MUFON conference in Pittsburgh. Tom Carey similarly rejected the mounting and conclusive evidence of the origin of the mummy, and he and partner Schmitt were enabled to continue spreading their unsupported story at such venues as Jimmy Church’s Fade to Black, where they were largely interpreted to have obscured facts and evaded relevant issues. Maussan offered a 5,000 USD cash bounty amid the nonsense for more photos of the mummy in question, which the floundering researchers continued to promote as an alien in spite of no proof whatsoever to support arriving at such an extreme conclusion.

Jorge Peredo seems to have been the first to locate an independent photo of the mummy when he did so about June 9.

Soon afterward, on June 12, researcher Shepherd Johnson obtained copies of numerous documents, including a photo of the mummy, from the National Park Service (NPS) via the Freedom of Information Act. 

Those following the saga were not surprised when Maussan once again rejected the evidence presented.

Anthony Bragalia issued an apology – to the mummy …

Some voiced objections to Bragalia’s actions, viewing them as attempts to shirk accountability, as he was the most vocal and adamant of his fellow slides promoters throughout the saga. It was not well received in light of the facts that for months Bragalia passionately insisted he be believed that the slides and much of the related circumstances were vetted, and that due diligence had been carried out, yet it is now abundantly clear that obviously could not possibly have been the case.

Bragalia appeared unable to understand the mistakes he had made in failing to accurately differentiate between fact and supposition. It was also argued that he failed to understand why people object. It could be added that he is highly unlikely to find sympathy, even if he is now correct, among those who warned him all along that he was jumping to premature and irrational conclusions, yet he met those warnings with extremely questionable tactics and digging his heels in even deeper. 

It is arguably very doubtful that the saga could have progressed as far as it did without blatant collusion. It is extremely difficult to accept anyone could view those images, with or without documents from the NPS, and not consider the most likely explanation to be a mummy in a museum setting, or, at the least, realize there is no reason whatsoever to assume an alien. 

… they are highly unlikely to find a sympathetic ear among a UFO community that warned them all along to suspend judgment pending verifiable evidence, and they chose to reject those warnings with aggressive and self-righteous contempt. If the rest of us can be expected to figure out how to avoid jumping to unfounded and, in all honesty, idiotic conclusions, so can they.

 

Thank you Jack for keeping the heat on these failed “researchers.”

Unraveling The Secrets

SMiles Lewis will be on Tim Beckley’s show tonight: Unraveling the Secrets on the PSN-Radio Network at 11pm CST.

UnravelingtheSecrets-2015

UNRAVELING THE SECRETS – EPISODE # 16
JUNE 6, 2015 on www.PSN-Radio.com / www.UnravelingTheSecrets.com

Hosts:
TIM BECKLEY AND CARLA ANDERSON
Producer And Engineer
ANGEL ESPINO AKA THE JACKAL
Call In Number – 786 484-3633

TOPIC: – HUNGRY? – IF SO IT’S TIME TO DINE WITH THE GODS

SPECIAL GUEST # 1 – JOSHUA CUTCHIN

Our guest tonight has a reputation for being a blowhard.

Joshua Cutchin began playing tuba at age 12. Five years later, he appeared on NBC’s Today Show with Sam Pilafian and Patrick Sheridan; the year after, he enrolled in the University of Wisconsin, where he studied music performance under the eminent John Stevens and received his first instruction in jazz with Jim Doherty.

But we are not here today to talk about music, but instead the delicacies of food.
But this will not be your normal trip to MacBurger, but instead we will dine with the “gods.”

Joshua Cutchin has served as Public Affairs Director of the University of Georgia Hugh Hodgson School of Music for three years. During his tenure at UGA, Joshua has authored over one hundred articles, press releases, and blog posts. In addition to appearing in local media, his press releases have also been referenced and distributed by such media outlets as the Associated Press and National Public Radio. Before his time at UGA, Joshua provided content for the Georgia Symphony Orchestra (Marietta, GA), Athens Banner-Herald (Athens, GA), Walton Tribune (Monroe, GA), and Observer News Enterprise (Newton, NC).

Joshua has appeared on a variety of paranormal programs discussing his work, including Coast to Coast AM, Mysterious Universe, Binnall of America, and the Gralien Report. Just a few weeks ago , Anomalist Books released his first book, A Trojan Feast.

A Trojan Feast is a book like no other. Sandwiched between its covers you will read some succulent tales to make your mouth water. Accept food from faeries, and you’ll never escape their realm, according to European folklore. Accept food from Sasquatch and you will forever be trapped in the spirit world, according to indigenous North American tales. And today, abductees—at least those who have returned—often report being offered strange beverages from their captors. Are these similarities mere coincidence, or is something more at play?

In this outstanding example of scholarship on the unknown, Joshua Cutchin has created the world’s first survey and analysis of the food and drink offered by aliens, faeries, and Sasquatch. The offerings are often not what they appear to be: some liquids have healing or aphrodisiac qualities, some foods expand awareness, and there are ointments that reveal an invisible world.

Through his playful explorations of every possibility—from the outer regions of space to the inner sanctum of the human mind—A TROJAN FEAST offers new insight into our relationship with these strange creatures of the outer edge.

SPECIAL GUEST # 2
STEPHEN MILES LEWIS

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies.

He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists.

SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network.
He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific
Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives.
