ZetaTalk: Virginia Tech Massacre
written Apr 18, 2007

Gunman's Writings Were Disturbing [Apr 17] The gunman in the Virginia Tech massacre was a sullen loner who alarmed professors and classmates with his twisted, violence-drenched creative writing and left a rambling note raging against religion and rich kids. A chilling picture emerged of Cho Seung-Hui _ a 23-year-old senior majoring in English. He may have been taking medication for depression and he was becoming increasingly violent and erratic. Cho's writing was so disturbing that he had been referred to the university's counseling service. One was about a fight between a stepson and his stepfather, and involved throwing of hammers and attacks with a chainsaw. Another was about students fantasizing about stalking and killing a teacher who sexually molested them. Monday's rampage consisted of two attacks, more than two hours apart _ first at a dormitory, where two people were killed, then inside a classroom building, where 31 people, including Cho, died. Cho died with the words "Ismail Ax" in red ink on one of his arms, but they were not sure what that meant. [and from another] Va. Tech: Gunman Student From S.

[and from another] ABC News: Killer's Note: 'You Caused Me to Do This' [Apr 17] Witnesses say he was stone-faced as he opened fire. Law-enforcement sources say he may have had a romantic interest in a young woman who was found dead after the first shootings. He wore sunglasses indoors, with a cap pulled low over his eyes. He whispered, took 20 seconds to answer questions.

We were asked to comment after the Columbine massacre, and after the Amish school massacre, and had the same comment both times. There is more to these shooting than meets the eye, but the reason for the cold hearted blood lust is not some black ops under human control but an audition. The shooter, the perpetrator, is auditioning for a spot in the hierarchy among the Service-to-Self, on the Service-to-Self worlds they will be incarnating into next. The Earth is in a Transformation, where those in the Service-to-Self are increasingly sorted into circles where they interact with each other, in preparation for their future incarnations on Service-to-Self worlds. Likewise, those in the Service-to-Other seek each other out and form communities, and all this is in preparation for the forthcoming change on Earth where only those in the Service-to-Other will be allowed to incarnate on Earth. In this increasingly polarized setting, what happens to the mindset of those in the Service-to-Self, who increasingly are denied access to the patsies and victims and lackeys they have always found in abundance? There is resistance to bullying, because the Service-to-Other shore each other up and defend each other. There is lack of access to the weak, whom the Service-to-Self like to bully, as they are under the protection of strong Service-to-Other groups who set the tone and don't allow bullying. The Service-to-Self, in short, become enraged.

We have stated that The Call for counseling by Service-to-Self aliens is done by the human being in an almost continuous state of rage. This type of chronic frustration does not happen because of life circumstances, as in this setting intermittent rage occurs. But the Service-to-Self want life wrapped around them, serving them, no blocks to their satisfactions or desires, no challenge to their authority or sense of ego. Few humans in life attain such a setting, so those in the Service-to-Self who are not somehow blessed with a life that provides what they demand, a totally self focused life without frustrations, are enraged, chronically. They fume. They desire revenge over slights. And they find slights occurring daily, among people simply treating them as they do the rest of the populace, during normal interactions. If they are not waited on promptly, given preferential treatment, given grades at school they do not deserve, given authority over others when leadership positions are chosen, getting sexual satisfaction from the partners they desire - they assume a slight and are fuming and plotting revenge, if only in their heart.

Cho Seung-Hui fit this profile exactly. He increasingly slid to easier courses, from a business major to an English major. His choice of an engineering building for the massacre was not by accident, as this is a highly disciplined major, one with greater status on campus than an English major can gain, one more respected by the girls, and thus Cho Seung-Hui wanted to somehow best this group if only by having a gun when they did not have. He had poor interpersonal skills yet was stalking beautiful partners, ultimately trying to intimidate one with a gun and losing his temper when she did not submit. Were he physically stronger he would have become a rapist, such was his mindset. He enjoyed the concept of brutality, as his writings showed, but like most bullies did not get into situations where the tide might have been turned against him. He avoided physical contact, fearing his slight frame would not prevail. He was known to wear sunglasses and a low-brim hat, to avoid eye contact, and to refuse to answer when people spoke to him casually. This again shows someone timid and fearful of losing out during interpersonal contact but with the immense ambitions all in the Service-to-Self carry for themselves, the basic bully personality.

Was he programmed like a Manchurian Candidate to explode on cue? Such clues as a phrase written on his forearm, 'Ismail Ax', relate to a literary character, the arm of God used in a massacre. Unable to get status and beautiful women in life, he hoped to at least attain this type of stature in death. What of his seeming familiarity with firearms? Given that any evening watching TV would show the expert use of firearms, repeatedly, the ability to use these automatic weapons effectively should not be a surprise. Who was his teacher? The TV! Cho Seung-Hui is reported to have a grim determined visage, unemotional, thus the suspicion that he was programmed to carry out his deed. Having been counseled by aliens in the Service-to-Self to promulgate such a disaster, he was pushed over the edge by having lost his temper when confronting a would-be lady love, who once again rejected him. At this point he was faced with prison, as he knew he had not covered his trail, the first shooting being an accidental outcome of an intended intimidation. Bullies who are slight of build do not fare well in prison, so the idea of going out in a blaze of glory, posturing as an Ismail Ax, and moving on to what he assumed was his next place on another world, was more appealing. Thus, he was not so much angry during the subsequent shootout as determined to carry out a mission.

Will he get his reward? When giving a Service-to-Self Call, such humans receive counseling from aliens in the Service-to-Self, who are of course looking out for themselves as much as possible also. The advice, thus, is less to the benefit of the human giving The Call than to the aliens answering The Call, but their advice is postured to seem an advantage to the human. Encouraged to create as much heartache and sense of fear and abandonment possible in human society, the human giving The Call is told they will have a better place in the society they are destined to incarnate in. The ticket, of course, is something horrific, the bigger and more horrific, the better. Columbine was children killing children. The Amish school massacre was sweet Amish girls being raped in the center of their community. The Virginia Tech massacre had chained doors preventing escape and a certainty that those inside were not armed to defend themselves so the lone gunman ruled, absolutely, while turning a deaf ear on all pleas. Do these souls taking this advice actually get a better placement in their future society? They are being counseled by liars, as all in the Service-to-Self freely lie for their advantage, so the promise would of course not be kept. And someone so easily led about by the nose as to believe such a promise made would be kept would not be considered a leader in any society.
