I spent a last day at the Prophet's Conference today. Rather than recount all that people talked about, there's a slightly unexpected and useful lesson for me today. On how it is becoming increasingly hard to shut up the truth, and how one needs to be willing to have one's facts straight, be able to back up one's stories, and be in harmony with one's audience or collaborators. So, a couple of little useful disharmonious stories from today:

Barbara Marx Hubbard gave a stimulating speech about conscious evolution, and about the need for many groups and networks to work together on locating positive solutions. She also had a phone call with U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich during her speech, where he said some equally wise words. And I think he is an excellent person. But Barbara maybe hyped him up a little too much, and made some statements about how we all support him 100%. And after Barbara, her assistant Theresa delivered essentially a commercial about the online network on their website urging everybody to join, and again a statement was made about backing up Dennis Kucinich 100% in whatever he does. And a member of the audience then jumped up and started protesting angrily, but he was sort of shut up right away. And the whole segment was finished, but other audience members protested, and wanted to hear what that guy had to say. Which was mainly a point about not being able to trust the Democratic party, after all the garbage they've done. And it was quite easily digested and answered (by John Hagelin) and we moved on. But the point was, it wasn't possible to give a picture-perfect, positive presentation when even a single audience member had a burning disagreement.

Later on there was a speech by Drunvalo Melchizedek. Drunvalo always has wild stories about mystical experiences and sacred geometry and strange technologies. This time he wanted to talk about UFOs and extraterrestrials. Which is cool with me, as I would certainly also like to see the U.S. and other governments come clean with all the stuff they know, but aren't telling. But Drunvalo chose to talk about a book, "The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects", he had discovered under mysterious circumstances, which was a long lost and suppressed full account by Edward J. Ruppelt, the first head of Project Blue Book, which was investigating UFOs in the U.S., with lots of exact names and dates and everything. The book was published in 1956, but all copies mysteriously vanished, with no used book sources being able to locate even a single copy at this point. So, Drunvalo is publishing it, because it is so important and might blow the lid off the whole thing. So far so good. But this is 2002. An attentive and resourceful audience member, whom I'll leave anonymous, had used his laptop from his chair, over a wireless Internet connection, to research it a bit on the net while Drunvalo was talking. And in no time at all he found that the book was in no way lost, and it is, as a matter of fact, for sale on Amazon. And it has been reviewed and has 5 stars and so forth. So, what does that mean? Well, at best Drunvalo didn't check his facts, or he got misled somehow. But the point I want to make is, you can't get away with that.

So, there's some sort of lesson there, about not being able to keep the truth away from small groups of well-connected resourceful people, who are free to move around and self-organize. You can't just gloss things over and expect everybody to take you on your word. So, you better check your facts before you speak in mixed company, and you better be prepared to deal with any divergent opinions on the spot. At the same time, I notice that governments and media still are able to keep the truth away from large groups of people who are hypnotized by the fake world presented in the media, and they're still able to shut up dissenting voices. Hopefully that is about to change too.

I like your observations. In the first example I believe Barbara needs to allow more space for all opinions especially if the audience is given the space to speak. This is the new consciousness. Sometimes passion blinds us.

when it arrives (conveniently after poicly is voted on at a conference).. so Mr Campbell, when do we come up with a useful plan, like decriminalising all drug use and possesion, and updating licensing laws to treat drugs appropriately : by providing dangerous drugs (basically Heroin, Crystal Meth, Crack Cocaine) through prescription, in a safe environment together with support and rehab for those who want it, while allowing soft drugs to be accessible legally to those who wish to use them responsably.The meaningless fiddling we have seen where marijuana is reclassified has shown to be pointless and confusing, resulting in pensioners being persecuted by police for growing a harmless substance for their own use, and treating drug addicts criminals instead of patients and victims.It's really not that hard to put together a common sense solution if we can allow the public to drive what are essentially dangerous vehicles at fatal speeds through our streets, then why on earth can't we allow the same people who we trust to drive cars, or scuba dive or use cut-throat razors ingest herbs and chemicals that are often safer than many pharmacutical drugs, or alcohol?
