I first ran into my recollections of Neil Armstrong–the astronaut as a kid in the museum up in Wapakoneta, Ohio. I then read about him as he appeared in Chuck Yeager’s book Yeager during the time that Tom Wolfe’s great book The Right Stuff had been made into a wonderful film. But Neil Armstrong for being the first person to walk on the moon has been something of a quiet spokesman on the topic and has a reputation for not wanting to speak too much about his experiences. However his crew mate Buzz Aldrin has not been so quiet and has let out over time that there were encounters with intelligent life during the Apollo missions.
All this was fun speculation however I was a bit stunned when Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay took the speculation of that first moonwalk and used it as a way to introduce their fictional Transformer robots in Transformers 3. I would have thought NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin would have protested such an outrageous use of their likeness, but they didn’t.
Instead the movie came out, and the talk was all about how cool the Transformers were and how hot the supermodel in the film was, but not much talk went on about the strange events of that first moon landing. After all, there are many conspiracy theorists who believe that the entire moon landing was a fake designed to convince the Soviet government that America had beat them to the moon to demoralize the communist country. Being a fan of Spielberg for many years, I have an idea of how much money he has personally invested into the research of extraterrestrial life, and without a doubt he had access to detailed discussions with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin at some point in the past and felt comfortable enough with their statements to inject them into the movie he produced.
My interest in extraterrestrial life stems from my rather detailed research into world history, comparative religion, scientific evolution and the time line of philosophic thought. After my own investigations into The Mothman Prophecies of Point Pleasant, West Virginia and searches around the deep woods of south eastern Ohio for cryptozoologic creatures and remnants of the legendary Bigfoot, I cannot report seeing such creatures, but understanding that there is a lot more to the world we are living in that is not revealed to us. After seeing how our society denies the existence of socialism and Muslim extremism right in front of our faces, something that is just too big and outside the parameters of accepted religious understanding is just too much for people to comprehend. For me the final proof came when I realized that archeologists and anthropologists were hiding a great number of discoveries to protect the education institutions that founded original thesis concepts, and that science was more interested in maintaining the status quo rather than truly understanding the REAL nature of human existence and the origins of life.

So I do not say it lightly when I say that most of what the modern human being thinks he or she knows—they aren’t even close yet. Our feeble grasp of our history, of our nature, and of our potential future is but a blade of grass in the vast never-ending horizons of the Midwest in America where grass can be seen as far as sight will take us. Humans have a lot to learn and it is our superstitions, religions, and fears of discovery that hold us back.
Mythology, which is another subject of mine that I study intensely, is formed in that attempt to bridge what we can rationally discover through a philosophy such as Objectivism by Ayn Rand and what we suspect is just over the horizon of thought. When we observe something that does not fit neatly within our senses, yet know that something has occurred, we are left to piece together the puzzle pieces logically, and logic does not take us to the door of virgin births, and gods who grant wisdom from unknowable places in time and space. Nor is the mathematics of Pythagoras in 490 BCE going to provide everything we need, because much is still unknown waiting for a philosophy to uncover the tools to detect more of the known world.
The human tendency to believe that everything has been invented is the approach of the living dead, the modern version of the zombie who uses Lao Tzu as a crutch to hide from the danger of adventurous knowledge and reside peacefully in a life of harmony, and contentment. Compared to where the human race should be, we are no more advanced than Thales of Miletus and his deduction that everything in the universe is made of water, which is true if the basic material of the cosmos is analyzed at one level of understanding. We know now that there is much more to the cosmos than these simple observations made in 540 BCE.
Within the year of this writing the news in the scientific community is ablaze with the discovery that neutrinos have destroyed the premise of Einstein’s equation E=MC2 by moving beyond the speed of light for the first time in human history. The media wishes to profess that Einstein was wrong, but he was not. He was no more wrong than Thales of Miletus; he observed the world and went as far as he could with limited knowledge. Within 100 years, quantum mechanics using sub atomic particles went further than Einstein could. And in 100 more years we will discover that breaking the light barrier with neutrinos is an archaic field of endeavor. We currently know that 72% of the universe is made of something called Dark Energy and another 23% is made up of Dark Matter. Only 4.6% of the Universe is made up of Atoms, the stuff we detect with our senses—only 4.6%.
I am 100% sure that our current government in the United States, for the same reason that religions desire to maintain control over their flocks, wish to deny science—to revert back to The Dark Ages–so that they can still be in charge, have maintained a level of secrecy against the public from what they have learned. They are motivated by the same trends Plato observed in his book The Republic in his cave allegory. Those who are in positions of power wish to keep that power due to a primitive desire in the human mind to maintain hierarchical relationships and such thoughts are a sickness. They stand in the way of mankind’s fate.
This is why I believe that Neil and Buzz discovered on the moon what they sought out all along, relics from a society either camped out in observation of life on planet earth, or an abandoned facility in a state of serious decay. I believe this is the primary reason that funding has been cut to NASA and we have never returned to the moon. The governments of earth wish to keep the spirit of human kind under their thumbs so to preserve the old order of stupidity prevalent for over 10,000 years. Earthly governments wish to keep mankind quiet for the same reason that Athens sentenced Socrates to death, because to the view of the Athenian government, Socrates was corrupting the minds of the young with his questioning philosophy. Socrates was offered to be exiled disgracefully, or to drink a fatal dose of hemlock in 399 BCE. Socrates chose the hemlock but lived on in his pupils first Plato, then the magnificent Aristotle who then instructed Alexander the Great.
We are no different now than we were then. A few minds think ahead of the social train of thought while everyone else lingers behind. When the rest of society catches up with those great minds it’s finally realized that everyone should have listened. A few hundred years’ later great minds like Jesus, Buddha, Confucius, and many others are finally recognized for their genius by followers who are simply second-handlers and fill in their own lack of proper recollection with myth. And the frustration continues.
The gates of wonder are open, yet mankind fears to go in because we still cling to leaders to lead us! In America we rebelled to push these leaders away, and we created the greatest country in the world using the miracles of capitalism to drive a technological boom unheard of in the history of the world, culminating sadly in that space voyage with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins. For the last 50 years America has enjoyed the technology developed during the NASA space race, but since Bill Clinton took office in the 90’s NASA has been dumbed down and defunded like the rest of society through a public education system that cares more for thoughts and feelings than adventure and scientific breakthroughs. This is done not to advance mankind, but for the kings of the hill to remain where they are, and to eliminate competition to their thrones of power. These days America is no different in their quests to throw off the shackles of political confinement than any other country in a global push for socialism. The motive was articulated by Plato in 340 BCE by the Allegory of the Cave which portrayed that the knowledge of the world is limited to mere shadows of reality and truth. And this is what our modern world is, mere shadows of a reality we do not yet have the courage to face.
Listen to Neil Armstrong in this clip at The White House in one of his rare and cryptic dialogs. This is not the speech of a conspiracy theorist, a con man, a hustler just trying to sell a new book. This is the voice of a fantastic test pilot who became an astronaut and had the courage to ride in a capsule the size of a car through the vast ocean of space to hit a small, unknown target. And what they found there was beyond human comprehension that is easy to see in hindsight.
If the human race starting with America could have the courage to tell it’s politicians to go to hell and shut the hell up—and get out of our way—we would discover on the moon the remnants of earths distant past, colonies set up to stage landings onto earth. We would also discover the means there of galactic, possibly intergalactic travel with technology that would make our discovery of the neutrino seem childlike. We would then discover on the planet Mars that Ray Bradbury was not so far off on his Martian Chronicles novel published in the 1950’s. There will be archeology on Mars that reveals great societies long gone and eroded away. Some of them coming to earth to settle, some of them trading with earth like America and China trade today, and we will discover that all this occurred over 100 million years ago and that these are our ancestors, and that the characters of Noah, and Solomon are our close relatives in the concept of time, instead of the distance figures we think them to be. We will also discover on Mars that some of its inhabitants left our solar system all together to settle someplace else in a cycle that is as old as time itself.
We will also discover that god is not out there in the heavens someplace or even on a distinct planet, but resides within one of the 11 dimensions that we are just beginning to get our minds around in quantum mechanics. These realities parallel our own existence completely in a complex pattern that can only be explained through the new rules of physics that show themselves at the quantum level.
But such discoveries will seem like science fiction always to the individual who seeks collectivism in a herd of cattle migrating through a bar or night club on a Friday night intoxicated and looking for a place to satisfy their sexual stimulation. They will belittle such concepts like amended ideas about the start of the human race, or technological breakthroughs that are easily within grasp, because they are living in a land of shadows, and are victims to the creators of those shadows.
It is even beyond comprehension to most minds that our current governments may actually be in present contact with extraterrestrial life, or are analyzing the documents left behind by such cultures that are kept locked away in private vaults peered at by those who wish to crown themselves kings. It would not be Presidents like Obama and the Russian KGB agent Putin who would involve themselves in these activities, because they are mere puppets to the hands of power that hold the cash they eat from.
I’m not personally interested in the shadows of our lives. I’m interested in what makes the shadows. To prevent investigation into their activities, the shadow makers have created the term “conspiracy theory” and other mechanisms to control speech and investigation, and alien technology falls under the umbrella of lunacy. Any serious scientific examination is discouraged either by politics or religious beliefs into the world behind those two facades. It is there that the real answers reside.
In my own life I have scrapped much of what I was taught in public education and in my 23 years of religious training on a quest to see what makes the shadows in our lives, and for me, it is easy to see the shadows everywhere, and many times I can see the shadow dancers in their true form as they cower in disgrace hoping to remain in the world of illusion. To a large extent that is what I report here every day at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom, my observations of the shadow makers and what their motives are—as the rest of society seems content with just the images of shadows. We talk about school levy problems, public education deficiencies, philosophy, psychology, world history, politics, collectivism versus individualism, and the art of living a good, healthy life. Many who know me here believe that I’m an old-school cowboy type who wants the world to revert back to the days of John Wayne’s America—which I do. But more than that I love science, and all the possibilities that are before us, and it’s not just an anger at the progressive institutions who seem determined to take America back to the Dark Ages and reject the traditional values of American Excepetionalism, but also in the rejection of scientific discovery in favor of archaic protections of beliefs that belong to the evasive second-handlers.
I don’t wish to maintain a world that has national health care, or a Social Security system. I wish for sickness to be cured and old age to be eradicated through science. I do not wish to have a world of greenie weenie carbon credit salesmen running our governments. I wish to take manufacturing into space and onto the surface of the moon where heavy equipment can be moved easily and trash can be dumped directly into space. I do not wish one global world under socialism controlled by a few banking tyrants. I wish to spread the brilliance of the United States Constitution into China, and the countries of Africa, even Russia the art of capitalism to bring prosperity to the entire world as adventurers begin to colonize space. I don’t wish to maintain roads to the level we are today, because I want my own personal Skycar from Paul Moller so I can leave my driveway and be in Disney World just a couple hours later from anywhere in the country. Driving a car is archaic. You should just be able to plot in your coordinates and the thing will fly you to your destination while you sleep. CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE.
I’m not interested in the restricted vision of our current world. I’m not interested in learning what they like, care about, or fear, because to me, they are simply in love with the shadows because they fear the unknown. I want to know what kind of archeology we will discover on Mars, and that seems so far away right now because academic institutions aren’t even open to the discoveries on planet earth like the situation of Malden Island. CLICK HERE FOR MORE. I want to know the truth. If there are extraterrestrial influences, I want to speak with them directly—not behind the face of some goofy politician. As an American I don’t recognize any higher authority besides myself, and I don’t want a bunch of comb over politicians standing in the way of my understanding and my will to learn more. I want the infinite possibilities that are before the human race and anything that stands in the way of those possibilities is an enemy to my life of adventure.
It is sad that America has not returned to the moon. But the fact that we haven’t says to the world that our world governments wish to remain the shadow makers. They do not want to yield their monopoly on our understanding. They do not want us to discover that they are useless to us, because the discoveries that sit directly in front of the human race are infinitely productive, and beneficial. And the world of tomorrow is not destined to be enshrined in tyranny, and social apathy, but in discovery, adventure, and never-ending quests to see the makers of the next shadow on the wall. This is the fate of humanity that has been concealed by our would-be-kings to ends of preventing mankind from maturing into a fully technological society no longer dependent on leaders and their disreputable arrogance.
It’s a world so far only seen in myth, but in the case of keen observation, the myths of our culture are closer to reality than the shadow makers and their governments who cover themselves in secrecy by the funds we all send to them. All we must do is declare our independence, cut the money which maintains the façade and embrace this new world that extends beyond faith, beyond convention, into the world of tomorrow and all its possibilities.
Myth reflects reality in the eyes of an artist. Many times, the keys to understanding a deeper concept is in our fantasies in the form of fiction.
