Mr. Friend requested that I post information on an incident that took place in Toledo, Ohio in 1998. While this request was part of a long conversation, the gist was to provide people with information on some of the other threats facing the human race. He did use a phrase that struck me as odd. He said, “Information has a life of its own. How we give birth to it, matters.”
When I asked him to expand on this, he said, “Later.” We never came back to the topic.
In the documents provided there are a number of references to the use of thaumaturgy for ‘redescription.’ That reminded me of a recent development in physics, in which the fundamental underpinnings is not matter, but information. In this view, a subatomic particle is a reflection of this information, a manifestation of an underlying set of systems. These systems, or rules, are what is really important when trying to understand how the universe is constituted. What we think of reality – all the matter that makes up the world around us – is just a way of expressing this underlying information space. If that is the case, and if you could somehow change the information, could you change reality? Is that what thaumaturgy is? Is it a method of rewriting the underlying information space? And what does that mean for our understanding of reality?
Mr. Friend began by telling me that this item from the December 23, 1998 print edition of The Blade, a Toledo newspaper, was a cover story for an incident involving entities from another dimension. He wanted this publicized so that people realize what appear to mundane events may be something more.
The official report of the incident reveals a number of interesting things. Other Federal agencies other than the military are involved in this convert war. The FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit had many roles during its history. One that was popularized in films like Silence of the Lambs was to create profiles of serial killers. From this report, it is clear that elements of the FBI not only know about the presence of aliens, but have a regular reporting mechanism when cases are brought to their attention. This is further evidence of how widespread knowledge of the covert war is. Questions remain about how many people know the extent of the conflict or the exact nature of it.
The report also sheds more light on the threat of extra-dimensional aliens. In addition to Deadbolt Ginger, who have been referenced before, the report mentions some other creature, the Sentient N-Space Deformation (SNSD). We know that N-Space is the term used to describe other realities. Could the SNSD indicate that there are other dimensions where the fabric of space itself is alive and intelligent?
Finally, it is clear there are humans that assist the aliens, in this case, the Children of Pan. Dionysius is the Geek god of fertility. Pan is also associated with fertility. Both are also associated with wilder aspects of human nature; orgies, drunken parties, animalistic rituals, and general debauchery. What could Deadbolt Ginger offer people to persuade them to become followers? The report doesn’t touch on this issue; however, a little creative theorizing may offer an explanation. What if the idea of gods came from creatures like Deadbolt Ginger? Could all of our beliefs be distorted visions of reality, going back to antiquity?
This email was apparently written by the author of the report. While there isn’t any new information – except for the reference to the FSB, the successor of the Soviet-era KGB – it does demonstrate that even in the midst of a covert war against aliens from another reality, people are still people. There still concerned with pecking orders and petty power struggles. While on one level that is a concern, I also find that refreshing. It shows that humans can still be humans, even in the face of global annihilation.
The final document is a partial transcript of the debriefing of one member of the Goblin Hammer assault team. I think it shows how dangerous the fight against the aliens is and how critical it is that groups like the Shadow Garden continue to succeed. If we are facing a foe that can ‘rewrite’ space and time, then the margin for failure has to be approaching zero.
