Re: Zeitgeist & The Venus Project
has anyone ever noticed the striking similarity between the Venus Project's visions and Jack Nicholson's stoned speech about aliens in "Easy Rider"? here's the speech to refresh your memory...
"Well, they are people, just like us - from within our own solar system. Except that their society is more highly evolved. I mean, they don't have no wars, they got no monetary system, they don't have any leaders, because, I mean, each man is a leader. I mean, each man - because of their technology, they are able to feed, clothe, house, and transport themselves equally - and with no effort...Why don't they reveal themselves to us is because if they did it would cause a general panic. Now, I mean, we still have leaders upon whom we rely for the release of this information. These leaders have decided to repress this information because of the tremendous shock that it would cause to our antiquated systems. Now, the result of this has been that the Venutians have contacted people in all walks of life - all walks of life. [laughs] Yes. It-it-it would be a devastatin' blow to our antiquated systems - so now the Venutians are meeting with people in all walks of life - in an advisory capacity. For once man will have a god-like control over his own destiny. He will have a chance to transcend and to evolve with some equality for all."
notice also how he specifically mentions "Venutians". the Venus Project's website claims the name stams from Venus, Florida, but i seriously think there's a bigger connection with this speech than their testing facility when it comes to their name and their mission.
let me know what you think.
