The whole extraterrestrial/God thing* is kind of dicey, conversation-wise. Like, there are a lot of people won’t even mess with this topic.
Especially my intellectual,edumucatedpeeps. Folks whowillengage on almost any other topic of the day – sex, race, class, whatever –will NOTstep to the God-thing too tough…and won’t evenPRETENDto acknowledge any commentary on ‘aliens’ or life off-planet.
I can dig it.
Most folks’ take is, “Why truck with theinvisibleandunsubstantiated-- when there’s so muchin-our-face/unmitigated/ unconscionable/wacknessgoing on? Like,why does it matter, what’s out there, up there,if it ain’t affecting me day to day-- and anyway,I can’t CONTROL IT, so what’s the point of eventhinking about it…”
Yeaaahhhh…I can dig it.
So,why my own fascination/obsession with all of it -- even before the vision of the alien chick?
The dark, eternity of space. Wherein/and throughout/and outside of/and still creating all of it/all of us/where we have been/and where we will go/isGod…
…and,some unfathomably superior and powerful speciescapable oftransversingall of that limitless darkness…an entitywhich, ultimately, can turn our sum total ofearthly ass to grass…
Or, maybe not.
Because on the other side of thatend of flesh/life here on earth…what would there be… exceptpure spirit.consciousness…ultimately, true immortality?
*from my continuing research on the many similar, recurring ‘Gods from the sky’ narratives and depictions found in ancient myths, creation stories, and religious traditions worldwide, only conflating the two makes any sense to me, at this point...
NOTE ON VIDEO: I thought this was kind of interesting. I'll be adding lots of links to the blog, since there's so much out there, God bless youtube, right? This is titled, "Reverend Barry Dowling: UFOs and Religion."
