The Philosophy Channel (TPC) is pleased to announce today that it is partnering with an Emmy Award-winning filmmaking organization on a co-production that will explore…
But is any kind of pro-active stance available that might catalyze the possibilities for resistance noted in our previous installment? After all, decades or centuries could pass before any substantive shift in perspective occurs regarding the UFO question. The authors suggest that such a course of action is possible…
Of course, suggesting the functional necessity of a UFO taboo to maintain the smooth functioning of the modern state is one thing, maintaining it is quite another…
“If the proper application of science demands that at present we be agnostic about whether any UFOs have an extraterrestrial origin, neither believing nor rejecting this, then the taboo on trying to find out what UFOs are is deeply puzzling. After all, if any UFOs were discovered to be from somewhere else in the universe, it would be one of the most important events in human history, making it rational to investigate even a remote possibility.”
The four principal arguments offered in support of the skeptical view of the ETH are described as follows: (1) “We Are Alone.” (2) “They Can’t Get Here.” (3) “They Would Land on the White House Lawn.” (4) “We Would Know If They Were Here.” Let’s take these one at a time…

The primary question – and apparently this is the most important point – is this: are they real or are they mere fantasy products? This question is by no means settled yet. If they are real, exactly what are they? If they are fantasy, why should such a rumour exist? (Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies, 1958)—- C. G. Jung
The technium is primed to hijack matter and rearrange its atoms to infiltrate it with sentience. There seems to be no place a mind can’t be born or inserted.
The technium wants what every living system wants: to perpetuate itself, to keep itself going. As it grows, those inherent wants are gaining in complexity and force.
WTW: Woven deep into the vast communication networks wrapping the globe, we also find evidence of embryonic technological autonomy. The technium contains 170 quadrillion computer chips wired up into one mega-scale computing platform. The total number of transistors in this global network is now approximately the same number as the neurons in your brain.
