UBIK is the media. Simple as that. There is no good part of the media, anywhere. The internet is the battleground between UBIK and VALIS- and we can see this because the exact moment that any part of he internet goes from being a means of people speaking directly to a commercial site of any kind- UBIK takes over and the information is not just suspect, it is guaranteed contaminated.
Alex Jones- classic example.
GLP- classic example.
ATS- classic example.
God / VALIS wants direct contact with us. UBIK wants to drown the signal out in noise.
Could you please elaboarate further as to what UBIK is and why you believe it is the media; plain and simple and what VALIS is.
