The Autostereogram

Most people think of a marathon as a long distance event. Maybe so. Maybe it’s nothing more than connecting the dots as we travel down that long and winding road.

I asked a young lady yesterday at the front counter at the gym what book she was reading. Actually I knew. It was Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I asked her what she thought of it & she answered “it’s a chilling book”. I commented that that book came out about the same generation that 1984 by George Orwell was published circa 1948 (Brave New World was 1932). Anyhow, she quickly chimed in that it was also of the same genre of the gentleman who recently passed away -Ray Bradbury- Fahrenheit 451. Ok, now I was really impressed by this person. Most people and I mean almost ALL people are not connecting the dots like this young lady already has…

At least in the secret society business they have “open secrets” and “hidden secrets” shrouded in symbolism and allegory. The general populace who are considered “profane” by the adepts are not privy to this. And by the way, this isn’t conspiracy - just reality. A good comparison popped into my head - it’s like taking a small bubble of whatever kind of of liquid it is, putting it under a microscope, looking at it and seeing for the first time that it is absolutely teeming with life. Or how about this - years ago back in the 80’s the fad in specialty pictures had been where you focused in on them & they would eventually jump out at you in full 3D detail. Mind you that on the surface they meant actually no sense at all.. (What a huge metaphor if there ever was one).

Per Wikipedia:
An autostereogram is a single-image stereogram (SIS), designed to create the visual illusion of a three-dimensional (3D) scene within the human brain from an external two-dimensional image. In order to perceive 3D shapes in these autostereograms, one must overcome the normally automatic coordination between accommodation (focus) and mergence (angle of ones eyes).

So, here I was back in the 80’s at a place in northern Indiana called “Nowhere Bar & Grill” (the joke was - where are you going? Answer: Nowhere) and lo & behold there was one of these big pictures sitting encased in glass right there on the wall. Soo, after playing darts for a couple hours and occasionally imbibing in some tasty beverages, I mentioned I could never make sense of those pictures. The group that I was in said “all you do is focus on the “reflection” and relax your eyes”. Now all of a sudden it happened. The clarity of the photo jumped out at me with such 3D clarity that it was literally mind-blowing. WOW.

Point here being, these guys (Huxley, Orwell, Bradbury, Kubrick et al) they all “knew something” about what was going down in the future.

And now after all this time, the picture is jumping right out in front of us.

The question is - can we see it & let others know the same?

When it comes to the rapture cult; can we see the actual truth behind the lies that they are telling us (however sincere these institutionalized people are)? Or, do we still want to stand behind our personal comfort zone not willing to face up to the truth because our feelings and relationships come more into focus instead of the truth? Do we have the spiritual eyes to "see" the Truth?

Because that is where the real picture is and for some people, it takes a little effort to see it.
