Planet X Counterpoint: NASA Would Have Told Us By Now
Page 1 of 3
In this first
article in this series, we'll examine the common Planet X counterpoint used by skeptics;
that NASA would've told us by now. This counterpoint is often used by wives to
silence their husband's interest in the topics of Planet X and 2012, and vice versa to a lesser degree.
Those who use this counterpoint are not aware of NASA's
decade old Near Earth Object (NEO) disclosure suppression policy and how it has
politically throttled a long established scientific practice. Consequently, it
was dubbed the "doomsday news protocol" by the Associated Press in
In this article NASA's doomsday news protocol" suppression
efforts will be discussed in depth, along with the negative ramifications of
this politically motivated policy. The goal here is not to challenge NASA as this
agency is no more humanly flawed than any other governmental agency.
At one level, it would also appear that angry spouses and
NASA have something in common. They're not gods and they're not omnipotent.
Like angry spouses, they use mockery and humiliation to keep others from
talking about something they do not wish to hear.
Nonetheless, this is 2010 and we've lost the luxury of time for
hubris and pointless distraction. The time has come to quietly and calmly
prepare for the worst case scenario, while hoping for the best.
If you get it and want to get through it, avoiding arguments
with arrogant governments and angry spouses is the necessary step in survival
planning and the whole point of this article.
Counterpoint Pros and Cons
The counterpoint that NASA would have told us by now is a silencing
response based on a common assumption. One typically triggered by a human
virtue, that being, to warn loved ones of a potential catastrophic threat. As noble
as this impulse may be, there is a better way to handle it.
Therefore, we'll begin here, to set the stage for a more
meaningful response to the counterpoint that NASA would have told us by now is
often bandied by cynical friends and family members. It is a cheap attack,
designed to dissuade personal studies through mockery and humiliation. That's
the downside. On the upside, counterpoints serve a very useful and necessary
These same counterpoints will be voiced by the newly aware in
the course of their own rational process of discovery. In this way,
counterpoints are helpful and always deserve fair and open-minded answers. Likewise,
the humility to say "I simply do not know."
The unchecked impulse to warn loved ones of a potential catastrophic
threat will invariably trigger a negative and dehumanizing counterpoint
response. Herein is where most of those who write us fall prey to
circumstances largely of their own making. Why? Because they try to evangelize
a topic to those who prefer to be ignorant of it.
Conversely, the proper use of counterpoints it is to help
those coming into awareness to shape their own unique pathways to knowledge.
Ergo, inviting the humiliation and mockery of topical illiterates will only
contravene your ability to effectively survive the coming hardships.
Therefore, only engage in counterpoints when you can help those
seeking knowledge through awareness. Do this to make a real and constructive difference
in their lives, as well as your own. Do this by serving others without
expectation, as they take their own unsettled steps into the future.
The Future is Not Cheery
Assuming you are already in awareness, you know without
question, that life as we know it, is already slipping away. Absent the threats
posed by a Planet X flyby, our planet is already in peril.
We're running out of essentials for modern life, such as
fisheries, fresh water, sweet petroleum and revitalizing forests. Tragically,
we're replacing them with even greater population demands and pushing our
biosphere ever closer to the threshold of a global cataclysm.
Eventually, industrialized nations will lose their immunity
to these changes, but by then we will have already crossed an immutable
threshold. The point here is that Planet X and 2012 as topics are not absolutes.
As a survivor, there is only one absolute. You do or do not
survive. Therefore, survivors are better served with relative thresholds. Those
we define in our own unique ways.
Once you cross over a threshold, your life changes and the
first threshold we all cross at some point, is the beginning of awareness. Even
when that awareness comes with a last breath.
This Awareness Begins with
An Unsettling Discovery
Coming into awareness about a potential, long range
catastrophic threats such as Planet X, typically begins with a lonely and
unsettling discovery. Once you approach this threshold, the first counterpoint
you pose to yourself is, "am I crazy?" This is because you sense
that once you cross this threshold into awareness, there is no going back.
This is why most people quickly run away from this first
counterpoint by differing, rejecting or ignoring it. The only awareness
they're interested in, is the emotional and material comfort of life as we
presently know it.
Even those who see merit in the topic will often dismiss it
with a clever answer such as "I'll cross that bridge when I come to
it." Because their thinking is focused on their immediate comfort, what
they fail to grasp is that there will be no bridges to cross when the time does
come. No differently than those who boarded the RMS Titanic for
its maiden voyage in 1912.
I make this same point in my Spread the Word audio CD,
because it is a superb example of awareness. In this analogy, awareness is
defined as the act of standing on the pier as you count the number of lifeboats
and then doing the math. Meanwhile, all about you are craving the comfort of
the "unsinkable" Titanic. To them, the prospect of doing the math is
a passing annoyance.
We can only wonder how many actually did the math and
decided to sail on another ship.
Likewise, we can only wonder as to how many actually did the
math and ignored the results after being chastised by a spouse, eager to board
and throw confetti off the side.
For those who perished, the process of crossing the
threshold of awareness lasted a few hours and with disproportionate results.
While over 60% of the first class passengers survived, less than a fourth of
the more numerous third class passengers survived. Ergo, the less wealth you
possess, the more important the math becomes.
In the same vein, when a spouse or cynic uses the
counterpoint, NASA would have told us by now to mock and humiliate you into
silence, what do you tell them?
Nothing, because you allowed yourself to be compromised
because you failed you control your own impulse to share the awareness. So
then, what do you tell your spouse?
What Do You Tell Your Spouse?
All government agencies operate on a "need to
know" basis. In Sony's blockbuster film 2012, the "need to
know" premise of world governments was that only elites have a legitimate
need to know. Everyone else is everyone else. As inhuman and immoral as this may
be, it does offer a practical guideline for choosing when to confide your
awareness to your spouse.
Think of it this way. You and your spouse eave have a
radar scope on life and you each look for different things. There is nothing
that says that the faint blips of a future catastrophic threat needs to appear
on both radar scopes at the same. Just one will do.
In time, both scopes will light up and then your spouse will
have to enter awareness in his or her own way. In the meantime, your spouse will
certainly know or sense what you're seeing on your radar scope.
At this point, a range of negative consequences can unfold
if your spouse is antagonistic to doing the math. Therefore, pressing the
topic will only cause grief in your marriage. Worse than that, spousal
disputes can sharply diminish your ability to conduct your own personal
research and planning efforts.
Therefore, go quietly about the business of conducting your
own research. Likewise, quietly make emergency preparation for you and loved
ones. Should events propel them into awareness, they will come to realize how
you've shown admirable foresight and love.
Eventually, even an antagonistic spouse will cross the
threshold into awareness. Some will do it well in advance, though most will
wait for the ground to begin crumbling beneath their feet.
That being said, you must never force them across the
threshold before their time. If your spouse is a late bloomer, that's the way
it is and you need to accept this and prepare accordingly. In your own quiet
way, love them with patience.
If you lack this patience, marital discord may just be the
start of your problems. There is a greater consequence. When your spouse is
angry with you for pressing awareness, the more you press, the more likely it
is that your spouse will go outside the marriage for comfort and support. If that
happens, expect uninvited guests to show up, and at the worst possible time.
Most who prepare survival provisions for their families should
anticipate a few extra mouths to feed. That's prudent. However, if your wife
or husband is bitterly commiserating with others about your "foolish fascination"
with catastrophic topics such as Planet X, 2012 and Earth changes, you've got a
dark pot of trouble brewing.
Annoyed spouses will commiserate with sympathetic co-workers,
friends and religious leaders. They talk their ears off about your
"foolish fascination," as they describe your "doom and
gloom" planning and preparation efforts. This will not fall on deaf ears
or be quickly forgotten. Rather, it will weed its way through the grapevine,
via water cooler chatter, telephone gossip and so forth.
Then one day, the guacamole really does hit the fan. Prepared
for this day, you put your family survival plan into action. That's when your
spouse's grapevine cadre will begin to show up at your door.
They'll come pleading (and threatening if need be) to compel
you to "equally" share whatever supplies you may have with them. Of
course they will have ample cause for you have to fritter away your family's odds
of survival with perfect strangers.
What do you do then, given the crisis is partly of your own
making? Turn to your spouse and say "send them away?" Why bother? As
the old saying goes, "the horse is already out of the barn."
Allow confrontation to prevail and the last thing you may hear
before death comes knocking, is both you and your spouse saying, "I'm so
The key point here is to avoid confrontation: not just now —
When the Guacamole Does Hit the Fan
The later your loved ones come into awareness, the easier it
be for sudden panic to stampede them into misfortune. This is when you must be
calm, prepared and ready to take action.
Not only must you set aside the supplies your family will
need to hopefully survive a catastrophic event, you must also gather unto
yourself the strength to let their panic wash over you when the worst happens.
In such circumstances, you must possess the inner strength be
stoic, in a service to others sense. This does not mean that such stoicism entitles
you to say "I told you so." Nor to spout self-righteous
proclamations such as "you should have listened to me" or "I've
always been right."
These proclamations represent the counterproductive language
of ego validation and they will foster bitter resentments, thereby diminishing
your odds of survival. Always remember. In a survival situation, the safety
nets we now take for granted will be overtaxed, failing, or will have already
failed. You're on your own.
In these worst case circumstances, an infected cut or scrape
can become a death sentence. Likewise, the distraction of an argument will not
only broadcast your position to those who covet what you have, but it also distracts
you from noticing their approach until it is too late.
For those of you blessed with an understanding and
supportive spouse today, count your blessings as your advantage is immense.
Work together and when an opportunity presents itself, try
to help others who must shoulder this responsibility alone. It will be an
important first step in creating a small but vibrant and durable survival
For those of you who are in awareness, but waiting for your
spouse to do the same. At some point, he or she will cross the threshold of
awareness. That is when you'll need to address his or her counterpoint
questions to the best of your ability.
At the top of that counterpoint list will be the specious
assumption that NASA would have told us already. Here is one way to answer
it. (Continue to next page...)
