It’s been an exciting 24hrs since the release of the new X-Files and frankly there was a lot to take in. Chris Carter and his team have really presented us with a game changer scenario, and as a researcher I’m hooked to see what comes next. To say it was an interesting episode is to put it mildly and there is a lot here to absorb. So instead of dissecting the whole episode I would like to focus on the very end (with a little discussion about the middile) because I believe it gives us a clear indication about where this is going, it also happens to be one of my favorite sets of subjects. Now before I get into the meat of this very important new element to the X-Files mythos I would like to remind people who have not seen it that this does classify as a spoiler so stop here and go watch it, then things will make a lot more sense. I also want to add – these things they discuss in the episode are very real which makes it all the more interesting.
Ok so where to start – Lets start with the first bombshell Sveta. So what’s Sveta’s deal? Sveta is very interesting because as she discusses her true abduction experience with Mulder she lets it slip that she does not believe her abductions were the product of aliens, but instead humans who abducted her to experiment on her and use her as an incubator to generator fetus’s which could be experimented upon. At one point she mentions that she could see there faces, human faces. This is very interesting because it maps to a little known field in conspiracy theory called “MILAB” or the notion of Military abductions. It turns out not all abductees believe they were take aboard UFOs, quite the contrary. There is a small but growing group which claims their abductions were the by product of secret government eugenics programs of various sorts. This also maps to the original claim by Barney Hill, which is also not spoken of much, that Betty and Barney Hill were abducted by humans (Described at that time as Nazi like) and then their subsequent memories were induced as Aliens to cover it up. These screen memories are multi layered and usually result in an owl motif, which morphs to an alien which morphs to a man and the screening memory begins to fade. This is particularly interesting in its ramifications as related to Mulders final statements to Scully in the parking garage.
The Parking Garage – The Crucible
A crucible is defined as a place or occasion of a severe test or trial, and I would suggest that the parking garage sequence is probably the greatest crucible, or test, of the entire X-Files. So why is that? Simple – this next conversation represents a massive shift in thinking as compared to the entire series. For nine seasons and two movies we have learned of the Alien Colonization program. Entire websites, even sections of books, have been devoted to dismantling the science fiction out of the show to prove the colonization program is real. It also represents a crucible for us, the viewers. We are about to under take a massive paradigm shift, a paradigm shift I myself underwent many years ago when I realized the UFO phenomenon was in fact not aliens but red blooded humans. It’s a mind binder so why not start it with a simple message – “Don’t Give Up.” A all too real message for all of us.
Now there has long been a lot of discussion about Chris Carter and his writing team. Were they being fed information for some nebulous disclosure or just very talented story tellers who taped into our collective zeitgeist to tell immersive story. Chris Carter claims its all research, others claim its disinformation on a grand scale. For me I think its little bit of everything. It’s obvious these guys did their homework because in a collective consciousness where abductions are generally accepted as alien in origin, the milab line of research is often not discussed. So to know about Sveta and the milab theories represents digging. I would also suggest they hear things. I’m sure every Tom, Dick, and Harry is coming to Chris Carter’s office with a story to tell about their involvement in the secret program. Some are real, many are not but either way if you tell a gifted story teller a story they are going to incorporate it.
Ok so the crucible, and the really important stuff. So at minute 39 we are left with Scully, a bit confused, staring at her car and this message when who should emerge from the darkness but Mulder and now the grand statement:
There’s something called the Venus syndrome. It’s a runaway global warming scenario that leads us to the brink of the Sixth Extinction. Those with means will prepare to move off the planet into space, which has already been weaponized against the poor, huddled masses of humanity that haven’t been exterminated by the uber-violent fascist elites. If you believe in that kind of thing.
Ok so what are we really seeing here? Lets take it by the numbers:
- The Venus Syndrome – This is a very real term originally taken from James Hansen’s book – Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth About the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance To Save. It is the title of Chapter 11 and refers to a rapid onset Green House Effect, much like Venus. Rapid onset global warming? Hansen has taken a lot of flack but this idea of an inevitable green house scenario coming to the Earth is very old. In 1957 Roger Revelle of Scripps Oceanographic Institute released a study which showed that the earth could not keep up with CO2 discharges from mass industrialization and as he put it
“Human beings are now carrying out a large scale geophysical experiment of a kind that could not have happened in the past nor be reproduced in the future.”
More recently another emanate scientist named Guy McPherson has also started to talk about it. McPherson believes that we are as little as 20 years away from a rapid onset green house effect. McPherson tells a compelling story which should be listened to and he has now devoted his life to spreading the information around.
So this is a VERY real thing.
- The Sixth Extinction – Also very real. The idea of the Sixth Extinction comes from the book The Sixth Extinction written by Elizabeth Kolbert and argues, very successfully, that we are currently in the waining days of a man-made sixth mass extinction event. The idea being is that through history we can chart five other mass extinctions caused by various means (Temperature changes, meteorite impacts etc..) but the last one, the sixth, is caused by us and will inevitably doom us as a unified culture.
- Those with the means will move off the planet into space – This is a very telling statement and maps directly, as does this entire monologue, to Alternative Three. The basic idea here is that the Earth is becoming uninhabitable. The Elite, the people with means, leave to go to Mars and setup shop there until things cool off. There is much much more to this but this is the basic idea. You can read the rest in The Secret Space Age if you are interested in proof that Mulder’s entire monologue is accurate. It is VERY accurate, and there is proof everywhere including the Secret Space Program which exists to not only transport but protect the elites as they move away. This is also a motif we see in Ridley Scott’s epic “Blade Runner” were we basically see the idea of the Venus Syndrome come to fruition. There are other examples like “Quintet” and “Snow Piercer” but Blade Runner is by far the most immersive, atmospheric and for my money the best representation.
- …which has already been weaponized against the poor, huddled masses of humanity that haven’t been exterminated by the uber-violent fascist elites. – Again part of the Alternative Three scenario. As the elites leave the poor huddles masses elements of the 4th Reich step in to maintain order as the surface becomes less habitable. This is possible due to Alternative Two which called for the building of massive underground facilities like Site R in the US, Svalbard – the seed vault in Norway or Mt. Yamantau in Russia. The facilities will protect B and C grade functionaries who, through their secret Gladio like armies, can control the Earth. This also relates to the Disaster camps (ie FEMA Camps) as well as the reports of food hoarding, ammunition hoarding and medicine stock pilling we seem to hear about every day.
Another Interesting Thing
I also wanted to point out one other interesting element of the new X-Files. There is a discussion about a ARV or Alien Replica Vehicle. Joel McHale, who does an excellent job as a dramatic television personality, takes Mulder to see a secret aircraft which apparently uses alien technology (see below), we also see a flying triangle blowup Sveta’s car at the end of the episode. This is interesting because in some part of the conspiracy world, like the one I live in, we have long believed that the triangular aircraft seen in our skies, and sometimes in abductions, were human in origin and it turns out they do exist. In fact awhile back I came across a video of a triangle, which looks very much like the one which blows up Sveta’s car, flying through the sky. The interesting thing about this video is that it passes under a star and you can see the adaptive camouflage activate. Click here to read more about that.
This new X-Files series is very interesting for so many reasons. It seems to be charting to a new area of research and focusing on an Alternative Three scenario, which is uncomfortably close to home and represents a massive paradigm shift from where Carter took it before. The original was very much based on Behold a Pale Horse but this new series has abandoned that and is going in a exciting new direction.
There was a lot to absorb, but it appears to be tracking to fact in many ways so I’m curious to see how far they take it, or are allowed to take it. I hope when the mini series is complete they go to a full show because these are very important topics to explore and the content being showed, all be it dramatically, is VERY real.
The Truth is Out There, but in this new landscape you very much cannot trust anyone….
