Confessions of an Alien Abductee (C4 UK TV)

Picture0010

Ann Druffel’s classic tome for UFO abductees and their families

Disinfonauts may be interested in this TV show which suggests that the UK harbours a large subculture of people who claim direct contact with Extra Terrestrials, not unlike the one in the US.

It profiles a group called A.M.M.A.C.H. who run a helpline for alien contactees.

From the Channel 4 website:

Anomalous Mind Management Abductee Contactee Helpline, or AMMACH, the 999 for people who believe they have been victims of alien abduction.

The film follows some of the 100 members who use the helpline, including Simon, a town councillor who believes that in addition to his earthbound wife he has a family of alien children with an alien lover.

There’s also Chantelle, a housewife who’s been abducted thousands of times and wants her encounters to stop.

Marie is an accountant who believes that her DNA has been altered and that she may be part alien.

Peaches Geldof Joins a Weird Sex Cult? Where Do I Sign?

OTOlogoOh… you mean The O.T.O?

Disinfonaughts are likely to be familliar with The Order Templi Orientis, part of Crowley’s legacy to the modern world. Relatively small in number they’re an occult group who meet, discuss and carry out acts of practical Thelemic magick.

However, you might not be familliar with Britain’s Daily Mail newpaper and their version of The O.T.O:

Forget Scientology, celebs are now falling for an even more sinister ‘religion': Introducing the Satanic sex cult that’s snaring stars such as Peaches Geldof

– Founder Aleister Crowley dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’
– Crowley was born in 1875 and styled himself ‘the Great Beast, 666′
– Other stars linked to the cult include Jimmy Page and Jay-Z

The socialite, 24, is a devotee of Ordo Templi Orientis, known as OTO, and even has the initials tattooed on her left forearm.

Given her tendency to flit between fads and fashions (at one point she was a Scientologist, more recently she has wandered into Judaism), this could be dismissed as another harmless flirtation.

Reports of a Vortex to Another Dimension Opening in UK

stargate761828rh9 (1)Totally unbelievable news of a vortex to another dimension opening in the UK from The Argus Newspaper, Brighton:

Council bosses have been left mystified after reports that a portal to another dimension has opened in a residential street in Brighton.

A member of the public reported to Brighton and Hove City Council that the “wormhole or vortex” had opened up in Montreal Road, Hanover, on May 2.

They made the report via the website Fix My Street which is more typically used to report potholes, dumped rubbish and broken lampposts.

The anonymous poster said: “I was recently walking my affenpinscher (a toy breed of dog) around the Hanover area of Brighton when I noticed that a wormhole or vortex has opened up on Montreal Road.

“On closer inspection it seems to be some kind of portal to other times, places and dimensions.

“I would have investigated further but I was concerned my little dog would be sucked into it.

Is The Pope Catholic?

As the election of a new Pope dominates the news agenda Nick Margerrison asks for the answer to an obvious question.

“Is the Pope Catholic?” is supposed to be one of those obvious questions which lies alongside the likes of “do bears shit in the woods?”. The answer is intended to be a no-brainer, “duh – yeah, course”. However, without getting into dull tedious doctrinal or theological debate, I think the Pope’s position on Catholicism is probably worth considering. Regardless of how much someone may or may not enjoy their job in my experience it’s often the case people tend to be very cynical about the area in which they work.

I mainly pay the bills with commercial radio work and you’ll not find bigger critics regarding that industry than those who work in it. They’re the ones who can (and do) slag it off most efficiently and brutally, in their private moments, usually when the beer is flowing[2].… Read the rest

The Death Of The Left Right Paradigm

From the about section of Disinfo:

We disagree with any labels such as “progressive” or “conservative,” “left” or “right,” “right” or “wrong”

There are a number of thought viruses embedded within the Disinfo brand that are key to the awakenings triggered within its keenest readers, commentors and contributors. Thanks to these concepts our core community is able to disagree on everything and yet still instantly recognise and respect those who ‘get it’.

The inevitable expansion of the brand means it’s worth re-introducing and re-articulating some of these ideas for newcomers. One of the most important is the often misunderstood aspect of political identity[1]. It’s possible the notion of neither labeling yourself as left wing or right wing will be entirely new. If that’s the case I envy you as someone who listens to a great album for the first time, welcome to a world revealed by The Death Of The Left Right Paradigm.Read the rest

An Over-Looked Classic

The above video is a brilliant piece. In a sense it's already very much of its time but this works as a reminder of the fast moving nature of the interbutts. For me this video hammers home the fact we live in an era where the "New Media" is now outgrowing the old. You are unlikely to understand most of the references in it, if you're not part of the internet's growing subculture, and frankly that's what I love about it.

Beyond God and Money

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” – Aldous Huxley

When Christianity was the West’s main system of control some of the finest minds in the world were employed to articulate brilliant, complex, philosophical arguments in defence of the various paradoxes which sprout from a belief in the bible. These “experts” were capable of ingenious and amazing[1] responses to the major stumbling blocks presented by the religious belief systems of the day.

For example:

If God is all powerful can he make a rock which nothing can move?

Answer: Yes of course.

Paradox: Can he then move that rock?

Either way his power appears to have limits. [2]

Wrangling round questions such as these gained articulate and clever people a lot of power and status back in days gone by. Don’t get me wrong, St Thomas Aquinas and his mates probably believed what they said. It’s just a lot of it, from the perspective of 2013, now seems like very clever, interesting, well-written, bo—cks.… Read the rest

Why Biologist Rupert Sheldrake’s Work is So Interesting for Fans of Mixed Martial Arts and Occultists

The sense of being stared at is only one aspect of Dr Sheldrake’s research but it’s the area most obviously relevant to the archetypal image of an occultist. If you really can occasionally ‘feel’ yourself being looked at, as his work appears to suggest, this could reveal something of the long suspected human “telepathic” abilities of ancient legend.

Sheldrake argues our minds actually connect with objects as they percieve them:

“The sense of being stared at works because our minds reach out to touch what we’re looking at and sometimes we can feel that, or animals can feel it, so we can affect what we’re looking at, simply by looking at it. So, there’s something coming out of our eyes, as well as going in.”[1]

Furthermore this might even be a skill you can learn to enhance. Experiments conducted into the phenomena have been altered to include instant feedback for the person being stared at.… Read the rest

How Does the British Monarchy Get Away with It?

“Power does what it wants. […] Forget the politicians, they’re an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything.[…] they own this fucking place. It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in ‘the big club.'”

– George Carlin

The absurd suggestion that the UK’s un-democratically selected Royal Family are nothing more than decoration has come crashing down as a court order forced the establishment to reveal how things really work behind the scenes. Despite Royalists constantly pushing the myth their monarch performs a ‘ceremonial role’, the truth is very different. In fact the approval of, Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Charles, has been required for at least 39 different bills suggested by elected members of Britain’s Houses of Parliament.… Read the rest
