I think it's cool that in the very first session we see the trademark "knowledge protects", however in a variant form: awareness protects, ignorance endangers. Also, that they suggest meditation to ease the pain produced by knowledge of the world as it is. Even from the first session, there were the seeds for FOTCM!
Q: (L) What is your name?
Belibaste started an interesting thread here: http://www.cassiopaea.org/forum/index.php?topic=3086.msg19619#msg19619 which deals with this name, specifically the "peor" ending. Laura posted an excerpt that will hopefully be included in Horns of Moses
on the Heresy of Peor in the Old Testament. The heresy is linked to the Midianites, and to Baal worship in the region. Laura writes:
The author of P ends the story by putting words in Yahweh's mouth to Moses saying: "Trouble the Midianites, and strike them. For they troubled you with their enticements by which they enticed you over the matter of Peor." Whatever it was that was taking place in that tent, apparently it was part of the practice of the Midianites, and the P author is making it clear that such will no longer be tolerated. And this event is entirely in line with the other mythic tales of the patriarchs and their practice of a religion that was, initially, based on acknowledgement of the feminine, and the shamanic ecstasies of ascent. We will later see how other stories indicate the process of controverting this worship to that of a male god, and that the writing of this new Torah was merely a major step in this process. A major point to consider here is that the "god" who spoke to the patriarchs was, very likely, the goddess. It can, of course, be claimed that this was simply vulgar paganism or nature worship. But again, please observe the historical effects of this transformation and judge the tree by its fruit.
See also these two posts on "Baal" or "Beelzebub" by Laura:
A: (paraphrased) 94 per cent of the human population are "containers" that will be totally consumed as ingredients/parts for a new race (i.e. reprototype).
A: Vats exist. Missing persons often go there and especially missing children.
In the second volume of his UFOs and the National Security State
, Rich Dolan identifies the first public mention of these "vats". In 1987 John Lear "leaked" a whole bunch of UFO (dis?)information on Paranet. As Dolan writes (pp. 420-424), summarizing Lear's statements:
The alien need for body parts - both human and other - was much greater than they had let on. [...] according to Lear, aliens consumed the enzymes and blood of cattle and humans, often apparently while the victims were stil living. Body parts were taken to underground laboratories [e.g. Dulce] where humans of all ages were kept in large test tube-like vats. [...] They were creating a human-alien hybrid race. And many of the nations missing children were actually being consumed by the aliens as food. [Lear wrote:] "the invasion is essentially complete and everytyhing is over but the screaming." Forget the mass landings and ray guns, said Lear. A highly advanced civilization could probaly complete its program before anyone knew what happened.
Lear said he got his information from sources in the intelligence community. So it seems that a lot of this info was true, albeit mixed in with disinfo.
Q: (L) How do we get this knowledge?
A: Deep subconscious.
This is an interesting idea - that the subconscious holds within it the roots of not only "animal instinct", but also all that is considered "psychic" - with its roots in the late 1800s, I think, and the work of psychologist (and "parapsychologist") Frederick Myers. While Freud is credited with "discovering the unconscious", his ideas were primitive compared to Myers'. Myers' work later influenced both William James and Aldous Huxley.
