By the way, if you are actually telling us anything of value, how is it you have escaped their insidious grasp and not fallen prey to an "accident"?

I think of the years between 1943 and 2013 as lost years. We could have had free energy back then, by the oil men couldn’t have it.
So right smack in the middle of World War II, the largest armed conflict in the history of mankind, when the U.S. had mobilized industry to run 24/7 to produce 300,000 aircraft, 1,200 large ships and 35,000 landing craft, god knows how many trucks, jeeps and other land vehicles, moved entire armies across oceans and continents, rationed coal and gasoline to civilians -- then J. Edgar Hoover broke into Tesla's apartment, took his plans for free (and presumably unlimited) energy that could power the wartime effort, DIDN'T tell the military, Congress, or Franklin Roosevelt, and, in fact, took this secret to his grave?

Yes, Tesla was a genius.

I believe he got “hints” in his dreams on how to achieve free energy from higher dimensional beings/ETs.

Just like how James Clerk Maxwell and Einstein talked about having vivid dreams where they took their inspiration from.

I think the gift of electromagnetic theory was gifted to Maxwell in his dreams from a higher dimension/ETs.

Talk about a blast from the past! These modern day truther conspiracies are nothing compared to the retro stuff from the 20th Century. OP, how do you feel about the Kennedy Assassination?

I think it's safe to say that I'm going to step out of this septic tank. Kamaski, good luck on your endeavours enlightening us all to the evil government conspiracy. My only advice to you is that if you start to think you are being followed or you feel the need to hurt someone to protect the truth you seek immediate professional help. Be wary of the line between 'eccentric' and 'threat to yourself and others.'

The US simply has a monopoly on technology, or at least wants to maintain its monopoly.

Do you have any insights you care share on other hot topics, such as....

... the safety of vaccines?
... the origins of HIV/AIDS?
... the eye on top of the pyramid that's on the back of $1 bills?
... fluoridation of water?
... crisis actors?
... the pizza joint in DC that is supposed to be the home of a child sex slave ring?

Before you go any farther with these wild claims(and I'm sure that is going to be pretty damn far), would you mind dipping a toe into the evidence part of the conversation? What is the best you've got?

I can’t convince all of you, but once you see it with your own eyes you will come to terms with it, and it will set you free.

The truth will set you free, I know its a cliche but it is true.

I suggest everyone have an open mind and be open to new ideas. Thats the best way we can have resonable discourse.


By the way I have been threatened with injection and its not fun, it sucks. And in that moment I became against the death penalty forever. How one human being could inject another is disgusting to me, all human life on this earth must be cherished.

No.

Now, whether or not we have been visited by extraterrestrials and nobody, including the government, ever discovered this, is an entirely different question.

In the US alone the wealth inequality is enormous and ridiculous. We should have ended this injustice years ago.
So, is your theory that the US govt is hiding the aliens with or against the alien's desires?

If the aliens don't want to be hidden, then I don't see how we could keep them hidden.

If they do want to be hidden, then they are kept hidden because an advanced species from across the universe, with access to powers and technologies beyond our comprehension, asked the govt not to talk about them.

This just cheapens human ingenuity. To say that we couldn't have come up with any of this without help from outside.

Unstable govts as well, like Pakistan or Venezuela? Unstable leaders, even, for instance, does Trump know about all this?

I suggest everyone in this thread search “The Disclosure Project” on google and read some of the accounts of those involved.

Their goal is to safely disclose the knowledge gained by people who have had contact with higher beings.

Please watch “unacknowledged” on Netflix and I ask you to please read the accounts of the Air Force officers who made contact and others involved.


They seems to often make contact nearly missile feilds/bases meaning they are concerned with our nuclear weapons our nuclear weapons and don’t want us to hurt ourselves.

I don’t know if Trump knows, maybe someone should ask him!

The problem is the Deep State does their absolute best to hide this knowledge from the President/Congress. But black funding is weird, the taxpayers still pay it but their representatives (congress) don’t know where the money is going.

This is the “black budget” I suspect.

Highly classified programs which may have been built in cooperation with other species/higher dimensional beings.
How did you get from alleged government waste and incompetence to evidence of "higher dimensional beings"? I think you must have skipped a step.

Now, now. Which is more likely - that humans overreact, or that aliens came to the Earth, and 1940s technology was able to defeat them (or is the story that firing off tons of artillery were fired to decrease attention on the UFO?)

I think he's talking about this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office...erty_Custodian - a department of the government involved in confiscating property of citizens of enemy nations ("aliens" in the same way that Bob Hope was an alien (he used to say "Where does an alien go to register around here?" - referencing the fact that he was born in the UK))

No, I think those initials refer to the US Coast Guard, which of course deals with aliens all the time.

Speaking of which, I can't help notice that the two things that aliens always have -- and confirmed by the OP -- is unlimited free energy and a cure for cancer (they also appear to have access to higher dimensions, though it's not clear what that's good for, if anything). For some reason the US government is bound and determined to put a stop to this sort of thing, apparently wishing us all to pay through the nose for energy and then die of cancer.

I would point out as a public service that there are said to be thousands of aliens right now on the other side of the Rio Grande and elsewhere along the Mexican border, presumably each and every one of them bearing free energy and a cure for cancer (not to mention access to many exciting new dimensions) and what's the US government doing? Yelling at 'em to go back where they came from, that's what! It has always been thus, and it's no wonder they periodically attack us with death rays from flying saucers, as depicted in numerous 1950s documentaries.

Holy fuck. This is exactly as true as the hypothesis that the reason Tesla deteriorated after 1900 is that aliens came to earth and lobotomized him because he was a threat to their cosmic hegemony.

It's a fact of human physiology that when one focuses intensely on a subject or action over weeks and months, one will begin to dream about that subject or action. I, personally, once had a temp job stuffing envelopes under a moderately extreme quota. By the third week, I was doing the job in my sleep. Vividly. No one was surprised to hear about it and no one speculated that unearthly beings were causing the dreams.

The only difference between my dreams and their dreams is that physicists and inventors tend to focus on unanswered questions, rather than moving pieces of paper.

If dreams reveal things in higher dimensions, then from my dreams higher dimensions must contain a bunch of hot space babes.

You realize wealth inequality long predates the US? Or were the aliens in Rome also.

Now I worked for Intel and I never saw one alien. That I was sure of. And if the aliens gave us the technology they seemed to dole it out at about the same rate it could be developed without them.

The Firesign Theatre single had a bit about all aliens must register. Anyhow, maybe it explains Trump's wall. The aliens all land in Mexico, and Trump wants to keep them out.

That's because Gordon Moore is an alien. He brought the technology with him and doled it out in specific doses (he limited semiconductors to doubling every two years.) His law was benevolent - he wanted to make sure the human software industry could keep up.

Then Bill Gates came along, neither quite human or completely alien, and screwed everything up.

They didn't come in a Tesla, they came in a shiny tin thing resembling the lid of an oversized garbage can, but with death-ray emitters sticking out all over. Musk gave them a Tesla and sent them back in it. Like unwanted house guests and fish, aliens start to stink after about three days. It was the only way he could get them to fucking leave.

If aliens came in my Telsa, I'd send it back too.

Isn’t your brain a more a more complicated electrical system than any that we can currently think of, what frequency are brain waves excactly? A trillion hertz? I think the the electrical systems we currently have are primitive compared to the human brain. Isn’t the human body an elctro-mechanical systems after all?

I’m trying to relate Maxwells Eqautions to he human brain. But we don’t understand the fully, so its diffricult.

I honestly think the brain is as unexplored as the universe, and the govt doesn’t want us using our brain fully, they would rather have us fight each other and live in fear.

Yes Im not a good speller.


Seeing as the world is governed mostly by non-linear partial differential equations the things we “know” are the very tip of the iceberg.

99.9% of reality is non-linear PDEs, true? We only know how to solve a couple of these with computer methods.

Think about how the pendulum swings when you release it from a high angle off center.


Rumsfeld was on to something when said there were Known Knowns, Known Unkowns and Unkown Unkowns.

The sky being blue is a a Known Known
The other plants and the universe is a Known Unkown
The nature of the brain/real nature of reality is a Unkown Unkown

After interacting with government workers on several occasions, I can tell you they could not start a conspiracy to get people to not drink poison.

Wow. An actual factual question that science has answered.

Frequency of Brain Waves

alpha 8-12 Hz
beta > 13 Hz
delta 3 Hz
theta 4-7 Hz

There are no prefixes. Brain waves are in the single or double digits of Hertz, not a trillion. Basic physics makes that trivially true.

Why didn't they just call if "mask"?" It means the same thing, and it uses six fewer letters to spell, and three fewer syllables to say.

That is a problem. No engine noise to cover the moaning.
