ZetaTalk: Public Awareness
Note: written on Oct 15, 2000
Quite outside of any information the public may be getting from the media or from government announcements, they are becoming aware of the pending pole shift
on their own. How does this happen, when key information is withheld and disinformation spread about? The power structure in a country, and their tightly
controlled arms known as the media, are only a part of the flood of information the average human on Earth processes daily. Of greater weight are factors the
human themselves observes - the weather, the price and quality of food, the general look of worry or happiness on the faces of those about them, the health of the
woods and wetlands and in particular the croplands nearby, and any odd behavior of the Earth that may affect the area they live in. They also note contradictions in
the news - not only bright forecasts not supported by the facts, but funds allocated to programs that seem silly in light of the everyday problems the citizenry are
dealing with. Why the rush to Mars, for instance, and the need to find water there and support human life there?
Most humans are keenly aware of the ability of politicians to lie, spew forth hot air, withhold the facts, skew the facts, and are likewise aware that the media can be
controlled. In dictatorships, there is only a single source of media information, from a station controlled by the dictator, so this relationship between politicians and
the media is assumed and anticipated. Given a growing awareness that something is amiss, and they are not being informed, how does the public respond?
- Distraction is a common response, as odd as that may seem, as this relieves anxiety. This is one reason that cosmetics and the movies did a booming
business during the Great Depression in the US.
- Taking stock of ones situation is another response, beyond the normal tendency to plan for the future and set aside savings or secure solid equity. There is
nervous looking about at the hills, the local gardens, and the routes out of town. This is not shared with others, as the reason for this anxiety cannot yet be
explained, so those taking stock may take long walks or a drive, and not even be aware of what they are doing.
- Preparing, under the guise of taking a new hobby or a vacation, if one has taken stock and found the situation lacking. If a family lives in a city apartment and
has no other place to call home, they may decide to purchase a vacation site, if only a spot in the woods where one can camp. Daddy brings home a worm
bin and mommy takes up patio gardening, and they go camping more often.
- Gathering their own statistics, on weather, crops shortages, and Earth changes not reported in broad scope in the media. If a friend reports increased
volcanic activity in the country they live in, but this has not hit the media, then perhaps a bit of home research is due. In this way patterns of change are
documented and shared among the populace, an increasing wealth of information that spread around the world via the internet and networks of family and
friends, and soon many people are aware of the larger picture.
- Posing questions to the government or scientific experts sometimes occurs when someone who is alarmed feels an honest answer is their due. This has a
predictable response in the questioner being treated like an idiot, the answer a cold stare, but this response is in and of itself an answer if it is inappropriate. If
silly questions get addressed, and significant questions get snubbed, then they have been confirmed as significant! The populace is unlikely to be better
informed based on who is in office, as all politicians will find themselves paralyzed by the situation.
- In certain rare cases, where an individual of great talent or wealth or motivation to help others is in a position to take action, wide reaching help for mankind
may emerge. This might take the form of a method of detecting earthquakes that the common man can use, a method of creating a vitamin rich diet from
unlikely food stuffs, a method of preparing grubs and worms so they are tasty and a delightful meal, or a method of storing electricity in home-made batteries
that allows a weary family to sleep on occasion without constantly attending electrical setup.
However, for most of the world, exhausted with the daily struggle to earn a living and feed a family, there is little awareness or preparation as there is no time for
observation or energy for distraction of inquiry. The poverty stricken and undernourished take stock daily and find their situation horrifying. They have long given up
seeking aid from the government, which fails to feed or protect them and in the main is an elite privileged class treating the working populace like a slave class. Even
should they become aware of the situation, the need for moving to safe locations and preparing for a different diet, they are without the resources to act. Thus,
public awareness of the coming cataclysms almost exclusively occurs in the middle classes, among those who have the time to mull and do research and access to
information on a global scale, and likewise have a persistent personality and an intelligent curiosity. Most, therefore, will remain unaware.
