Reflections on Telepathy, Vallée’s Cybernetic Control and the ‘Non-Local’
By Giorgio Piacenza
Dr. Jacques Vallée proposes that, between different cosmic species (like Earth human and ET or even beyond a physically limited ET or an “other” kind of being that is illegible under simple physicalist anthropological biases), the distinction between the signifier and signified (the symbolic representation and its meaning) can be quite different or even arbitrary and, thus, abductees can experience an incommensurability problem. And this would be why so often contacts manifest disconcerting degrees of “absurdity” to our human minds. (Read: “Incommensurability, Orthodoxy and the Physics of High Strangeness: A 6-layer Model for Anomalous Phenomena) http://bdigital.ufp.pt/bitstream/10284/781/1/223-239Cons-Ciencias%2002-8.pdf
I think that this would be more noticeable when there is little telepathic communication because telepathy by-passes or surpasses these semiotic limitations since, during telepathic communication, we are able to understand meaning more directly or intuitively (and many conceptual angles of it), included associated sensorial perceptions, images, personal interpretive translations, feelings and intentions. Considering the work of Mary Rodwell, this may be why many children with little understanding of comparative symbology apparently adapt with ease and make sense of what UFO intelligences are communicating with them.
Dr. Jacques Vallée also reminds us that wormholes are supposed to allow connections between times in the same universe, parallel universes, different universes that could be considered as different “dimensions” as in other realities. He aks SETI to consider that – the utilization of wormholes - would be useful for physical civilizations to cross vast distances as much as for time traveling civilizations, also for parallel universe civilizations, and perhaps civilizations from “other dimensions” to manifest in our known physical world. (Again, read: “Incommensurability, Orthodoxy and the Physics of High Strangeness: A 6-layer Model for Anomalous Phenomena”) http://bdigital.ufp.pt/bitstream/10284/781/1/223-239Cons-Ciencias%2002-8.pdf
He asks SETI and Ufologists not to limit in an anthropocentric way what the intelligences behind UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, a less prejudiced term for “UFO”) can be and do. Their semiotics could be based on different adaptations. Thus, I think that a necessary way to surpass this limitation would be – by necessity - the universal adoption of telepathy, a capacity that also surpasses the limitations of local space-time restrictions.
And from a systems and cybernetics perspective, posits that the UAP/UFO intelligences phenomenon produces interventions that affect our culture…a “control system” in terms of cybernetics. Moreover, while we could take this phrase “control system” to mean a surreptitious and Machiavellian, manipulative, in cybernetics, a “control system” is not necessarily negative and only for the benefit of one of the parts. Furthermore, Dr. Vallée sometimes reminds us that “they” can also be counter affected. Since control (meaning intelligent control) depends on intelligence and quite likely on awareness, the control of our own system would depend on how much awareness we have to be capable of a change in direction, similar to exerting change over acceleration (or over the rate of change), what would be a third derivative in terms of Newtonian mechanics (as the inventor of the Bell Helicopter, Arthur Young, author of “The Reflexive Universe” would show). First, there is position in spacetime coordinates, then the first derivative, velocity; then the second derivative, acceleration; then the third derivative: change of acceleration, which normally implies intelligent cybernetic control. http://www.arthuryoung.com/ruexc.html
Considering (under experiencer-testimonies) the characteristics of intelligent, living spacetime-surpassing “UFO” vehicles and (also under experiencer-testimonies) the integrative, non-mechanical characteristics of a science in which “things” and “subjects” are less distinguishable, the level of awareness that would be needed to exert control, not only on simple physical changes of acceleration of inanimate Newtonian objects but on self-constructing, complex, living societies would have to be non-local…like a 4th Derivative, a higher order extension of “Position” (beyond and inclusive of it) occupying a non-local position outside of spacetime coordinates.
It would be a “situated awareness” rather and, by that, the intelligence needed to exert “control” in the physical world would have to be aware of being aware that it is reflexively intelligent, thus not only able to intelligently control changes of acceleration in physical objects and, thus, to intelligently modify matter in a mechanical way, but also able to control changes in organized, intelligent systems organized by the non-local, experiential interactions of conscious subjects-objects. This would entail awareness of intimate, meaningful (in fact, living) non-local connections that blend subjectivity and objectivity (in a more ontologically symmetrical level) and which can change (less ontologically symmetrical) system-related probabilities. Moreover, this awareness itself would empower UAP/UFO conscious entities to exert influence in their own system and carefully blend it with ours for measured, precise interactions. Then again, own growing awareness rising up to that higher level of connectivity, would, in turn, exert influences on the UAP/UFO intelligences by consciously altering our response when our response is understood (also in Dr. Vallée’s terms) as part of those intelligences´ feedback system.
“I hesitate to be too specific. I'm speaking, as I'm sure you understand, of the attempted manipulation of UFO manifestations. It's a pretty tall order. We're assuming that there is a feedback mechanism involved in the operations of the control system; if you change the information that's carried back to that system, you might be able to infiltrate it through its own feedback.” (Jacques Vallée, http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc608.htm )
The UAP/UFO intelligences may interact and exert some influence while situated in a higher order and exert more influence (especially symbolic influence) while “coming down” to our order of things but, in doing so, they would also be exposing themselves up to be more influenced by us thus (in order to avoid our feedback to modify their own experiential probabilities) they would have one more good reason (besides our customary bellicose ways) for their semi-covert, cautious manners.
