Aliens And Paranoia!

Aliens and Media

As my grand-uncle was visiting us today, he asked me the first thing:

“What is this all talk about aliens?”

He is a farmer and also works part-time as a priest. He reads newspapers but never had a higher education. I said to him:

“If possible switch all those news channels and papers off and live like an ostrich, in peace, as I do.”

Then I suggested him to focus on relevant news only; news which is essential for his trade and living. I told him that negativity is widespread by news and media. The good news is scarce and negative news is abundant. I have heard so many paranoid versions of aliens that I am not interested in hearing them. Some even say by swearing on their lives that US government is being run by aliens and Zuckerberg has a tie-up with them too!

About Paranoia

Paranoia; it’ll destroia!

[ A friend named Monk24, on a forum, in a discussion on Paranoia, many years ago!]

It goes very deep into human psyche. Religions like Gnosticism in West and Sant Mat in East tell you that Lucifer created this world. The argument is simple:

What do you see more in the world? Good or bad? 

Is this world a just world, a fair world?

The answer comes: No! Why? Because you see it as unfair mostly!

Then it means: An unjust world–an unfair creator! Lucifer has created the world!

Who is Lucifer?

Who created him?

Advaita Vedanta also takes a similar approach by saying: “The world is nothing but projection of your own mind!”

It makes more sense than Gnosticism or Sant Mat. Mind is the creator of world. Mind as a force is the creator and not an alien entity Lucifer!

Lucifer, who is the ultimate alien is the creator of the world and then he is so hostile, hell-bent on stealing your soul–you and everyone around you is bound to be paranoid!

Paranoia is etched deep in our psyche. Altruism is deeper and compassion is deeper. But paranoia was needed for the survival of most mechanisms so it is there.

Moon-The Sucker Punch by Beelzebub!

Russian mystic George Gurdjieff said that Moon was an implant in our solar system to create some kind of balance. The creators of this solar system somehow committed a mistake and then Moon was brought in to counter the balance. Cycles of Moon bring about much emotional change in human bodies as its magnetism acts on the liquid present in the bodies. He said that wars, conflicts and anger in human relations gives energy to Moon as it is an infant which needs its nourishment. So smaller bodies give energy to larger bodies and all organic life on earth is actually meant to give energy to Moon.

David Icke and company who are expert conspiracy theorists will tell you gazillion reasons why US government is compromised. Even you can convince me of the same. Still the conspiracy buff has to breathe the same air as an ignorant fool has to. Conspiracy paints aliens as hostile forces. If you watch Hollywood films you will know that 90%(I made that up–thanks Dr. Sorick!) of them portray aliens as hostile invaders. Why? Paranoia!

I told my grand-uncle that since I live like an ostrich I deeply believe that aliens are mostly extremely intelligent beings. I feel cosmos is very vast and there are infinite universes so there is bound to be intelligent life.

An author(forgot the name) said that the thought we are alone or otherwise in such vast existence terrifies me! Now why should not being alone or being alone terrify you at all? I don’t understand!

Compassionate Intelligent Aliens!

I told my grand-uncle that authors like authors and auteurs C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick portrayed aliens as intelligent beings. There could be both types–intelligent and not-so-intelligent and myriads in-between. Why not focus on compassionate, intelligent and altruistic aliens?

Avalokiteshvara and other such Buddhas who live in different Buddha realms and Gods in Hindu scriptures like Krishna, Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva and Ganesha are benign, compassionate, gracious aliens who give so many boons and help advancement of human life.

If you are always preparing for a war, how will you turn inwards?

Gnosticism and Negativity!

Gnosticism will swear on your life that aliens and incarnations in Hindu scriptures and all sages are actually incarnations of Devil who is running the show. Alright, so keep fighting everything and join conspiracy cults. Life is already hell for obvious reasons and make it even bigger of a hell!

Why does mind tend to become negative? Because it’s its nature! You will forget 100 good deeds and 1000 beautiful words your friend said to you if he does one bad deed and says two bad words! Why? Because it is needed for your survival. You need to know that you will be ‘safe’ in future even if you need to label the whole world as ‘hostile’ and ‘bad.’ You need to be absolutely sure of it even if your own unguarded thoughts keep haunting you day and night!

Paranoia destroys us before any aliens do.

      Yes Lucifer is truly handsome–a fallen angel!

    1. For the same reasons we get depressed. For the same reasons we take interest in criticizing others and hardly appreciate ourselves and others: such is the nature of mind–it runs after negativity 🙂

        Such a shame when life is so short. I have learnt to remain on the optimistic side of things and try not to judge others – you can never know what another person is going through. However it took me a long time to realise this! Perhaps some people never realise. X

        1. Yes, still we can’t blame them for that. This universe is the way it is because there are innumerable unseen and unobserved causes making it possible. All we can do is to be humble, kind, patient and keep moving 🙂

      2. But don’t you think when we are aware of the bad things happening around us then it can inspires us to do something good about it? HOpe you don’t mind my question, just a thought. Great article as always Anand. I read every single one of them!

        1. Thanks for your kind words. That is true that is how it works usually. But it is also true that overwhelming negativity may drown us unless we first focus on positivity. Unless we meditate, serve and help others and focus on positive things–we ourselves will become too fragile to help. We need to stay positive and strong to lend a helping hand to our family, friends and other people 🙂

          Please never feel that I am in a higher position and you can’t ask. We are friends and we can discuss. The main purpose for writing these articles is to start conversation which helps us gain clarity of thought process so you are always most welcome. Thank you so much 🙂 🙂

  3. I think paranoia is something that is meant to be protective. It keeps us alert to danger. To an extreme paranoia can be deadly because it drains trust. Aliens, yes I think there is a possiblility, we will have to wait and see!

  4. If the US government was compromised and run by aliens, I would expect things would be better. I mean the government is like processed meat. You really don’t want to know individual details of what’s inside. If it’s palatable, that’s the best we can hope for.
