Project Blue Book on The History Channel: How the new science of intrinsic value is beating traditional Theory X academia

Watching the Project Blue Book series on the History Channel has reminded me of several topics that are quite important to our current times. One thing I have to say about stupid below the line people who have been critical of my articles on the topics of alien life outside of our planet is that it’s not my fault those people aren’t very smart. I am extremely well read and I make my living solving very hard, and complicated problems that many people count on for their livelihoods. This idea that humans evolved from some religious text and gradually emerged as hunters and gathers into complex city states without some outside influence is a pretty dumb idea if you consider the vast amount of evidence coming in on the topic, so I’m not accepting the government offerings on the relationship between mankind and space. I have watched governments lie about little things, let alone big things, so my thoughts on the matter are independent of the social trends. That doesn’t make them irrelevant just because I often discuss political matters every day. One doesn’t cancel out the other just because the government has created a narrative that is convenient to the power structure of below the line thinking. I am quite certain that the government has been lying about the human races relationship with extraterrestrial influences so that is the perspective I am functioning from based on huge amounts of evidence. But I also am not psycho over it either. If an alien spaceship landed on my lawn right now, I’d go out there with one of my big guns and get them off my property. I don’t care where they come from or what they want, so long as they don’t impede themselves on my individual life.

My thinking is that these travelers were always part of our world, from the earliest days of Greek philosophy to the founding of the American republic. They were interacting with the Indians, the Romans, the Egyptians, with every culture of the world the way we visit places like Fiji and the Caribbean. Slowly over time our culture became influenced by those interactions and our present government is doing the same thing that religious leaders from the past did, they put themselves between these travelers and the people of our world for the power position of control. If they could be the ones to bring forth new technology and ways of thinking, then they could be considered gods on earth. After all, who doesn’t want to be a god? Its one of those fantasy things that most humans have, especially below the line thinkers. So the cover-up’s of these travelers isn’t so much to protect us from them, but to allow the communicators to appear to acquire all this vast knowledge suddenly on their own. In our modern age it was the German obsession with the Vril Society that likely unlocked many of the modern UFO instances and catapulted our present society into space by use of rockets. The quick advancements of flying one of our little Wright Brothers fliers to a supersonic stealth fighter developed at Area 51 in Nevada had some help in ensuring engineers, German at first, that the conceptual ideas were possible, and that even traveling to the moon was within the realms of science.

The History Channel Project Blue Book series takes place during this period and I think it’s entirely feasible as presented. One of the spookiest books I have ever read was The Mothman Prophesies which took place in 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. I read the book because I thought the Richard Gere movie released almost two decades ago now was interesting but I had no idea it was about UFO sightings. And given the proximity to Wright Patterson Airforce Base near my home and has been at the center of alien UFO activity during the entire age of our jet propulsion era, the Mothman story was filled with lots of mystery that needed to be answered. I have always been skeptical about people who claim they have been abducted and I never just take a story at face value, but I am more distrustful of governments, so I am quite convinced that something was going on at Point Pleasant and that it had a relationship with the relatively close Wright Patterson Airforce Base and that all this assisted in building planes that could achieve supersonic and space flight. Reading the book I instantly recognized the Mothman as the Birdman of the Cahokian culture or the Thunderbird of Indian tradition. It is always the same character that could attributed to any number of cultures around the world at many different periods of history. That particular region of Point Pleasant is filled with mounds from an ancient culture of apparent giants who inhabited the Ohio valley before the Adena, Hopewell and Shawnee Indians moved into the area, and those people appear to have come directly to the Ohio Valley well before Christ was born and came from the mysterious people who built Stonehenge. These influences have been going on for a long time and the only thing that has really kept us from doing serious research into them has been our religious reluctance and addictions to below the line thinking controlled through our political structure.

I very much do believe in life on other planets, I even believe in life between dimensional planes of reality at both the quantum level and in higher dimensions above our own four-dimensional world. I believe those things because of the evidence that is out there. Our current science fields are still in their infancy so I consider that its only a matter of time before they catch up. One thing that is very prevalent in the science fields is that the studies by Daniel Pink in his great book Drive are very much at play. UFO researchers and mound culture investigations are driven literally by people functioning from intrinsic motivation—“I Type” personalities. They don’t do what they do for money, but because they are self-motivated to solve the puzzles. Scholastic scientists and government types are Theory X types, and “A Types” authority driven and stick and carrot motivated, meaning that they do what they do for financial compensation which ultimately provides corrupted results. A professor trying to get tenure and respect from the academic community, and ultimately for their schools need to publish findings and they expect those findings to stick for eternity and for science to build on those findings for the advancement of all science. But if the premise is wrong from the outset, then the entire foundation of academia turns out to be faulty, and that is what we have going on with the whole UFO investigation issue.

It is nice that The History Channel is willing to explore these topics but this is only the tip of the iceberg of thought that is really out there. However, while considering it we have to be aware that it is a long way from maturity. That is why we must remain intrinsically motivated in these explorations and to keep the analysis above the line. Project Blue Book is an above the line production the way the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind was, or The Mothman Prophesy. Just because the material may be uncomfortable to consider we can’t rule it unfeasible, especially when so much evidence is there to state the obvious. Lots of things in our modern life are hidden in plain sight and they stay in that condition largely because of our learned behaviors below the line and lost of intrinsic motivations as we age. But to the curious and evidence driven minds, there is a lot of mystery to play with and a truth we should all seek just sitting there for us to add to our human knowledge. And with each new show like Project Blue Book, we get closer each time to understanding the role we play in the great mysteries, so that in time they won’t be so mysterious.
