“We’re not used to thinking about process. We communicate with an object-based language. David [Bohm] invented a thing called – “rheomode“ – language in which we speak to each other in a flowing mode. There are some ancient languages which do this – Hopi Indian and some others. In his book Wholeness and the Implicate Order, you’ll find a chapter on language, in which he discusses this rheomode. It didn’t work [for science], because we were still thinking of objects” -theoretical physicist Basil Hiley [1]

Follows is a new iteration of my A + B = C lampoon of the Western culture’s Cartesian-Platonic paradigm; wherein is explored an entry from the Central Intelligence Agency’s “reading room” concerning the so-called ‘paranormal.’

Part one of this series develops why the Western paradigm will never be able to master the phenomenon at the highest level; for the fact they’ve fenced themselves out of the necessary intelligence with the ‘individual’ (ego) cultural imperative. This presents an insurmountable obstacle. [2]

Part two will look at intermediate possibilities (where the CIA might have taken the research since it had gone to deep cover.)

Part three will explore actual possibilities available to the modern mentality or so-called ‘civilized’ states’ pursuit of this knowledge within the severely constricted Cartesian-Platonic cultural paradigm.

Supposedly the so-called ‘Stargate Project’ had been shut down in 1995, after the CIA had taken full control of the program and shut out the Defense Intelligence Agency. The certainty this had been a false story to take the research under deep cover is implicit in several reasons;

1) from the Western ‘lab-science’ view there had been strong working result & indications pointing to phenomenal but little understood & unpredictable human ability to access alternate reality circumventing space-time limitations; [3]

2) Navy SEAL officer L.R. Bremseth, in a study for the Marine Corps War College, noted Stargate research implications pointing to what he names “Transcendent Warfare” necessitating a deep cover for further development of understanding how the exploration of ‘alternative dimensions’ might be developed in such a way as to render the present employ of warfare obsolete:

“Transcendent warfare’s impact extends well beyond remote viewing, which offers a glimpse of the possible. It also holds the potential for fundamentally shifting and expanding our current understanding of reality to such an extent that manipulation of established reality parameters, such as time, becomes possible if not plausible. The first nation or group that actualizes transcendent warfare will therefore possess a strategic advantage that may prove insurmountable” [4]

3) Last, but not least, the very fact of the CIA’s ‘reading room’ having situated the DIA material for the public’s perusal, points at looking to initiate discussion (they will no doubt attempt monitoring) or trying to develop further information (a case of be careful of what you wish for.) This while CIA has studiously remained silent on their own, concurrent studies of Stargate type material in cooperation with the Stanford Research Institute’s Russell Targ (a real creep) and colleagues. [5]

I should mention here (without giving up their names) I’d been for a number of years acquainted with two top paranormal professionals in law enforcement and they had 3rd colleague (I am not acquainted with) who was one of the principals in Stargate Project. However this might seem coincidental (we did not ever discuss Stargate per se), for my own part I do not believe it is coincidental at all these acquaintances were invested in exploring relevant Native American phenomenal experience (sweat lodge & sacred sites.) Without assigning any malevolent motivation to this preceding (in my experience these were ethical people), in my Native view of this small world we live in, I would also never assign coincidence to the fact of my discovering, altogether independently, intelligence agency penetration of professional associations for the purpose of exploring the paranormal through (among other fields of expertise) anthropology direct to subject of Native American spirituality. In this regard I will name names: the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and its’ past president, James O’Dea.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences had been cooperating with (laundering?) CIA funded ‘stargate’ research by Russell Targ of the Stanford Research Institute since at least the early to middle 1970s:

Relevant to the series that follows this introduction, one of the ‘paradox’ of the paranormal research scientific community is, under a cover of ‘peace, healing, evolution of spirit and the general welfare and future good of humanity’, one finds the inter-meshed intelligence agencies pursuit of discovering the keys to “transcendent warfare”
