The 2nd Best Pilot in Ashtar Command- (04/29/97)

Front Page

Archivist Notes: For the month of February, the Hades Base News opens up a time capsule on our past with the arrival to the base of the one and only Baron. It is part of the news that Wing Commander Taal has for us though at this time he was only a squadron leader. Lots happen before we get to that starting with Tia discussing the stock markets and the lack of growth over the last 30 years she puts down to lack of morals. Karra gets to talking about the hypothetical question of how the base would deal with an attack on our world from any race who may wish to initiate a mass landing against our will. The real question we wrestle with is what happens if the landing is at our request. Alana joins us on side two with a surprise dissertation on the flowers of Sirius focusing on the pink ones for the most part. It came from an education that included a study in horticulture. After Alana is the point where Taal comes on to go over what the Barons joining the pilots of the base will involve. From him, it sounds like the toughest teacher ever. Our final speaker of the night is Kiri who has two items to discuss which is the possibility Omal uses keywords in his channelings to pass on a deeper meaning and that coercion requires a positive frame of mind to be the most effective. Coercing without foreseeing the effects in the long-term is a lesson she reveals having to learn at times herself. Another session of good sound and some excellent information that was shared with the group. 

   Now for a full description of the above. Tia has some thoughts about the state of progression in the cost of living and quality of life and how one has gone up while one has stayed the same over the last thirty years leading to both parents often having to work instead of one. That she feels has led to a moral decline due to not having parental influence during the child's time at home. It's her belief that the gang life being seen along with a rise in crime is the natural result of that lack of morals. She ends her time defining the historical reason people get married and it is about security for the children. Next to speak is Karra who points out the fact that the people looking for mass landings to happen are always disappointed and she explains why we're not ready as a race. She does describe what would happen if there were such a landing against our will by another third dimensional race. What we learn is that it would involve the evacuation of the base of all non-essential personnel such as Tia and Kiri. Where things become complicated is what would happen if the landings were a result of a request by a large group of people. Anyone familiar with the "Star Trek" series is also familiar with the prime directive which is what comes into effect in such cases. As long as it is voluntary, there is nothing they would do to stop those people from their evolutionary path. It's good to know though that at least we are protected from the threat of another race preventing our growth as a race. The tape runs out as we're discussing how Omal has the ability to think non-linearly and have a plan for the channeling sessions then being put out on the web in the fashion they are twenty years in the future.  
    Side two starts off with Alana taking her mother's place in the channeling field and with the webpage becoming more popular, she was asked for something to be added that would be of interest. She chose a gossip column and even gives a bit of the current happenings. Fortuitously, she is also a horticulturist and is able to give an educated discourse on the flowers of Sirius beginning with the pink variety. We learn a lot about the special growing conditions necessary for them to be at their peak. Unfortunately, this was not going to be that kind of year and she explains why. She also explains why the same issues the pink ones are experiencing aren't happening with the blue or the red varieties. We do learn that a frost coming during their growing season can heighten the effects as her parting gift before Wing Commander Taal changes places with her in the pyramid. A new pilot had been assigned to the base we would come to know as the Baron who would serve as ringmaster for a few sessions before dying months later. Already a legend, Taal explains before he became so the Baron's first engagement was in a dogfight of overwhelming odds fighting alongside the greatest pilot of Ashtar Command who would sacrifice himself in that battle in a heroic act of bravery. Coming back to the present, he reveals the craft that shot up his bond mate during a recent engagement was a new technology not seen previously firing plasmic weapons, something not used by the Zeta Retuculi so it was a mystery at the time. Before ending, he takes note of a guest in the room and her military bearing. Different races, different dimensions but those who serve in a military can recognize one another. Our final speaker is Kiri who considers a theory on if Omal uses a theme word in the times he channels for us to figure out and find the hidden messages. One example had been found so whether it was a one-time thing was the question under discussion. We get to all that is left of the tape but not before Kiri gives us an excellent dissertation on maintaining a positive state of mind when coercing and to adhere to the strict moral guidelines associated with using coercion. Her conclusion is that
psychic morals are best developed at a young age which takes us back to where we started with Tia and growing up with the healthy morals of a parent at home raising the child so they can be taught properly.

1.)(0:00)- Tia takes us in a big circle on what the decline in morals is causing to our society starting with the stock markets. Two parents working means less moral development as an influence on the children.

1.)(0:14)- Alana provides a bit of gossip and then surprises us with an unexpected dissertation on the flowers of Sirius based on her leanings as a horticulturalist. From her we learn why this was a bad year.
2.)(12:44)- Taal fills us in on both Katrina's condition and that the enemy craft that caused the damage had new weapons and technology. The base also has the honor of having a new member in the form of the Baron.
3.)(25:30)- Kiri first considers Omal's use of keywords hidden in his channelings and then theorizes that put together, they may mean something. She expands on an earlier dissertation on morals and coercion.

(Tia gets the session off to a rousing start)

Tia: present at moment is Kiri, steaming from the ears, Karra in hysterics, myself, Alana, two technicians, both girls, one being Teene and a young lady that is not wanting to come in but watching from the bamboo.

Russ: Leah.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: tell her I said hi.......well, I’m waving at her.

Tia: okay, she’s waving back.

Russ: okay.

Tia: so, what can I do for you guys tonight? Shall we deal with the business at hand first?

Russ: go ahead.

Tia: okay, let’s look at…..funny, last week I said that the second biggest rise in the stock market had occurred.

Russ: uh-huh.

Tia: I’m going to repeat myself, today the second biggest ever rise in one single day occurred in the stock market. Odd isn’t it?

Russ: it was only 60 points when I saw it, what did it go up to?

Tia: 179.31 I think. Last week, on Tuesday……

Karen: now why does this happen every Tuesday?

Tia: no actually it’s every Wednesday they're making a killing. Tuesdays are spending because for it to go up you have to put money in, for it to go down you have to take money out.

Karen: yeah but it’s going to go down tomorrow. Doesn't go down much but it goes down enough.

Tia: yes, enough to make a nice, fat profit. But why is it doing this so wild swings? Well….

Karen: so the rich can get richer and the poor can get poorer.

Tia: no….

Karen: oh.

Tia: doesn’t work that way. For the people that work for those people that are making money it benefits them too. See this is something that your big government doesn’t understand. By taxing the rich right? There’s less money circulating. The rich are paying more in taxes so therefore they have less money to invest in businesses. Whenever you increase taxes and you tax the people that produce the money, not the people that collect the money or the people that benefit from the producers that make the money but from the producers of the money i.e. the top 1%, what happens? There is less money circulating, less money circulating means that those people that have the money aren’t going to invest as much which means that they don’t invest as much as they would’ve which in turn means there’s less money circulating which in turn means the economy doesn’t go as good which in turn means that there is less money moving around which in turn means that those that do the work aren’t getting as much money as they should which in turn means that there is less products being moved which in turn means that it’s less of a investment which in turn means that those top 1% won’t invest as much.

Karen: I’m glad I’m not typing this.

Russ: is there a quiz on this later?

Tia: so you see it’s a big circle… will be typing it later… it’s a big circle.

Karen: do I have to keep on putting which turn means?

Russ: yes…..and.....and in turn....and in turn.

Tia: uh-huh, and in turn, and in turn, and in turn, that is for the emphasis.

(Tia talks to a kitten outside the door in Durondedunn)

Karen: so that’s three out of the four again.

(Tia scolds the kitten outside who yells back at her in a very long reply)

(everybody breaks out in laughter)

Russ: that will come out on the tape real well.

Karen: that was good.

Russ: what does he want or she want?

(Tia explains things to the kitten who keeps up the argument)

Tia: but anyway so, what happens? Well, when there is a boom like this and the assumption that it is artificially generated….

(Tia gives a one-word reprimand to the kitten)

Tia: that it’s artificially generated, then what is going on? Well what is going on is certain key factors, things that are occurring at this time. Okay, inflation wasn't as bad as people thought it would be, the increase in the cost of living was what they expected. The increase in wages was not what was expected, it was less. Now what does this mean?

Russ: the rise in the minimum wage?

Tia: yeah, well no, the average increase in earnings for the average person. So, with this piece of information that growth is not as rapid as they expected….

Russ: right.

Tia: what does this tell you?

Russ: well it means that there’s going to be a lot of shaking up on the long-term, short-term is making a killing but long-term is going to hurt everyone.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: because the growth that is predicted is going to be less than was predicted.

Tia: okay in the last six years right?

Russ: right.

Tia: what has been said about the last six years by your elected governmental leader?

Russ: that it would go up.

Tia: he also said that it’s the best time in 20 years or 40 years I think, 30 years.

Russ: well it is, statistically it is.

Tia: but in actual fact it isn’t. Statistically it is because the fact that people are earning more now than they did then. Things cost more now than it did back then. Now this is something that they're not taking into consideration is the increase in cost of living over those 30 years. So, let us look at the increase in the cost of living over the last 30 years. Well, what’s happened?

Karen: gas really went up.

Tia: uh-huh. Actually, you're spending more money now to maintain the same life style that you had 30 years ago.

Russ: well no, now you have two working parents instead of one.

Tia: exactly……

Karen: well you need to otherwise you can’t afford to.

Tia: exactly. So, is it better now than it was 30 years ago?

Russ: well in one sense yes, because of the fact that women are working more….

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: that means they’re reaching more equality, they’re working and they're finding more gratification from doing the work instead of just being housewives.

Tia: uh-huh. Okay now let us look at that, this is going to be interesting and I’m going to raise some fur here. Okay, both parents are working….

Russ: uh-huh.

Tia: what about the children, who’s taking care of the children?

they’re in school.

Russ: they’re in school.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: school’s taking care of them.

Karen: day care.

Tia: day care, schools, what happens to the child’s moral development? All the problems that are occurring today is due to one thing, all the increasing gangs and the violence and crime with the juvenile element.

Russ: they’re just looking for acceptance.

Tia: no.

Russ: yeah, they’re finding their family life is not as full and rich so they're finding avenues to gain that in their peers.

Tia: correct. So, is it an improvement than 30 years ago? Answer, no.

Karen: well no, not with family life.

Tia: but you see what I’m saying? So, having both parents working……..I don’t like the setup up here, I would sooner have Mark at home taking care of the children.

Karen: I think he’d like that.

Tia: uh-huh, I think he would too. But…..

Karen: he’s just running out of places to take them.

Tia: I think just being around them is enough, just giving them the love.

Russ: yeah, now see there is the perfect example right there, Hades Base.......

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: you guys are on the same working track that we are down here. Drop your kids off at the crèche, pick them up at night and they have to depend on crèche parents for the affection during the daytime that they don’t get from their parents.

Tia: well the….

Russ: you can't have gangs up there so it’s not going to be that much of a problem.

Tia: well we have one crèche against the other in competitions.

Karen: it also sounds like the crèches up there are little bit more home life……

Tia: uh-huh.

Karen: than the day cares here.

Tia: and the crèche parents up here do love the children.

Russ: yeah, the day I see graffiti on the walls of Hades Base, I mean……

Tia: the day that you see graffiti on Hades Base? Oh it does happen, it does happen.

Russ: really?

Tia: drunken pilots.

Russ: well it probably gets cleaned up before I get a chance to check it out.

Tia: uh-huh, it does get cleaned up very quickly, it gets cleaned up by lasers, laser scourers and children do scribble on the walls but that’s children and that’s pilots letting off steam but normally it’s very artistic. In fact, you know the mural as you go down to the pilot’s area?

Russ: I don't go down there at all.

Tia: there’s a big mural there.

Russ: is that the one in blue?

Tia: no, it’s all different colors. Actually you’d have to go past the guards to get down there.

Russ: I just go right through buildings when I go down there.

Tia: yeah but it started, according to Kiri, by a pilot drawing a picture on the wall of another pilot as a joke and they just kept on adding to it. So, we have graffiti but it’s done nicely, it’s a mural now. But occasionally they do get rambunctious and one squadron will write another squadron on the wall, “Two Squadron sucks, One Squadron rules”, things like that. But, it’s done nicely and looks nice but gets cleaned off real well and it's normally when they’ve been drinking. But, getting back to the issue at hand. Having one parent in a third dimensional society always available for the children makes it a much more stable and loving environment. On my home planet, the men look after the children. Of course, being a matriarchal society that’s the way it is. It works and it works very, very well and the reason it works is that there is one person to lay down the law to the children and to form a structure within which the children can grow and learn and be. Now you take away that structure and give them let’s say six hours a day of total freedom to do as they wish, what’s going to happen? Well they’re going to revert back to a more primitive existence of a tribalistic nature, i.e…..i.e.....

Karen: cavemen?

Russ: gangs?

Tia: gangs, correct, gangs. So, with the tribalistic tendencies that occur, what happens? You get an increase in violence, you get an increase in mischievous behavior. Now, if there was one parental figure at home to take care of the children, then the children would have somewhere to go for acceptance and have the moral structure set up. To do this, there needs to be a decrease in the cost of living or the cost of wages needs to become an improvement where it is not necessary for both parental figures to go to work. And this is achieved by lowering taxes which means that more money can be invested into businesses which means that the businesses in turn can either employ more people or, pay a better wage which in turn makes the standard of living better so there is more leisure time for people which in turn means that the children can be taken care of and that brings us back in a nice, big, ragged circle back to the markets and investing. Don’t I get a round of applause for that nice, big loop?

Karen: that was a big loop.

Russ: well yeah, it's a great loop. But you’re thinking is flawed in two specific directions.

Karen: you can get up and bite him any time.

Tia: in what directions?

Russ: two. In my growth period.....

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: I only had one parental figure….

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: okay?

Russ: up until I was age 15, then I had two parental figures, one at home all the time.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, prior to that or I mean during that time I knew many people who had two parental figures, one at home and one who was working.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, now during the weekdays we'd all would be going to school and we would spend our six or seven hours in school every day.

Tia: uh-huh, is that all?

Russ: generally. And in that case then we would come home and we come to mom or in my case grandmother.....

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: and we'd spend time there doing homework and stuff until dinner time and then we'd spend time sitting around talking or watching TV.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, nowadays, let’s say we have both adults working during the day okay? The child is gone for the entire time that the parents are at work and then all three or four, whatever it is all meet again at the evening time for dinner and TV or whatever.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: I don't see a difference between my time or my friend’s times and the times now.

Tia: well first of all, there is no guidance.

Russ: guidance provided by school and parents in the evening.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: same as……

Tia: what about that period between everybody getting home and getting out of school? What of that time? What of the moral teachings, this is important, the moral teachings, what of that?

Russ: well I’ve always thought anybody like my mother was doing moral teachings was kind of boring.

Karen: I don’t know.

Russ: I got my moral teachings from Sunday school and school.

Tia: uh-huh but your mother shaped who you are.

Karen: right.

Russ: sure and she had plenty of time to do so even though she worked for a living and I never saw her except when I got home from school and she got home from work.

Tia: uh-huh.

Karen: but she taught you to say please and thank you and gave you all your manners…

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: I saw plenty of mom and I came out really fine. I think the problems with today’s youth and the gangs that we're seeing is not a problem from two parents working…..

Karen: no, that’s the problem with boredom…

Tia: it’s a symptom, it’s a symptom.

Karen: and peer pressure and.....

Tia: okay, that’s enough for the time being but you see the point is that the mother or the father may not care but the other parental figure does care.

Russ: well the thing is what we’re seeing now is a higher divorce rate. Yeah, two members of the family.....parents are both working but that’s when you have two parents which isn't all that common these days. More often than not it's just a one-person deal.

Tia: it goes back to my initial comment about morals. The best way to describe it is I know that Mark will not run out on me or our children whatever happens. If Mark and myself had a total spat and decided that’s it, we hated each other’s guts, I know that Mark would put on a front for the children. They would sense what’s going on.

Karen: children always do.

Tia: yeah but, there would still be the love from Mark to the children and of course the same would come from me. We would work at the problem and try to get to the root cause or I would try to get the root cause of the problem and try to change and adjust enough to be compatible. Hopefully Mark would do the same.

Karen: well yeah I can understand that but you can’t stay together just because the kids.

Tia: no but marriage is a full-time job.

Karen: my parents did that and I saw how miserable they were for 35 years, it was very, very depressing.

Tia: uh-huh.

Karen: I told them they should’ve gotten divorced a long time ago only because I knew they would be happier apart.

Tia: but they had the strong, moral obligation for the children.

Karen: yes they did.

Tia: the purpose of marriage is what?

Karen: to be together in a bond.

Tia: no.

Karen: to love, honor and cherish.

Tia: no. The purpose of marriage is for one thing and one thing only.

Karen: yeah, it’s a piece of paper that you put on the wall and say, "look…..

Tia: no, it’s for protecting the children.

Karen: but some people are married and don’t have children and don’t want children so that’s not always basically, necessarily true.

Tia: yes but the invention of marriage in whatever form is for children, to have children, to look after and protect. The parental unit is the protective shell for the children. Anyway, I've got to put on the next speaker.

Karen: that’s the way I used to look at it.

Tia: okay.

(Karra takes us to the tape's end)

Karra: hello.

Russ: hi Karra.

Karen: hi Karra.

Karra: greetings. Now wasn’t that a lively and interesting debate from Tia?

Russ: uh-huh.

Karen: well it’s a tough one.

Karra: well Tia comes from a matriarchal society. Technologically more advanced than yours, not as advanced as ours though. But, let us get down to something more serious and jovial, the webpage.

Russ: uh-huh.

Karra: nice job.

Russ: thank you darling.

Karra: does anybody want to say anything to Katrina at this time, she can only hear and can’t answer?

Russ: yes, we wish her a speedy recovery and definitely, watch her six.

Karen: watch her six?

Russ: it’s a pilot’s term.

Karen: oh.

Karra: okay.....

Karen: lots of love.

Karra: well hopefully....well she’ll be out of the hospital by the end of next week. She’s going to be grounded for a while while she has all her psychological problems addressed, her nightmares and everything.

Karen: I guess it’s going to take a while huh?

Karra: yes I think so. Anyway, do you have questions for me?

Russ: uh-huh. Well, one of the things we’re seeing is the fact that there is a lot of misinformation, misbeliefs, false beliefs….

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and this all goes back of course to deliberate disinformation put out by the UFO group of people in particular.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: because they’re receiving information that’s flawed and they're putting it on the web and people are eating this stuff up.

Karra: well they’ll eat anything up of a out of world nature. The sad thing is the more disbelievable, the more interested people are. If I was to say that tomorrow you will receive a message from deep space, the message will arrive and be picked up by one of your antennas and it will be deciphered. People would go crazy for that. Remember when there was talk of landings of mass UFOs?

Russ: oh yeah, it’s still out there but not as much anymore.

Karra: but everybody was talking about it in the chat rooms.

Russ: yeah, we shot that down pretty quick.

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and were vindicated in the end.

Karra: of course.

Russ: the mass landings did not happen at the comet of Hale-Bopp….

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: and we got a look that it's not going to happen anytime soon.

Karra: no, they’re not going to happen soon, you are not ready as a race. Individuals do not make a race.

Russ: no, mass landings maybe from the Zeta Reticuli and go grab a bunch of people who want to get picked up.

Karra: they would have a lot of trouble getting through our defenses for that.

Russ: yeah, well I mean single ships get through no problem.

Karra: uh-huh but a big force? No, we'd pick them up easy. We'd just evacuate the base of nonessential personnel.

Russ: right.

Karra: which unfortunately would be people like Tia, Kiri, the Cubs, Alex, Leonedies, my children, Alana, she would go…..

Russ: you’re essential.

Karra: yes, I’m a medic, I would stay. Kiri’s shaking her head saying no I wouldn’t because I’m a mother.

Russ: well yeah but that’s never stopped mothers before.

Karra: no but the children need their mother as she’s saying.

Russ: yeah.

Karra: but, medics would stay……

Russ: well Alana could take care of the children.

Karra: true, true, I don’t know what the setup is for an evacuation like that.

Russ: well I thought you would already have a plan already set up and people already know what their stations were and everything?

Karra: there are section leaders that know, I don’t know for the simple reason I’m not a section leader am I?

Russ: no.

Karra: I am a medic and I'm in charge of a little area of housing. I’m not a department head, I have somebody above me. Kiri’s a department head so Kiri would know.

Russ: uh-huh.

Karra: Tia is a department head so she would know but they wouldn’t know each other’s if they were strangers or other people on the base.

Russ: now, what would happen if a large group of people all got together and asked the Zeta Reticuli to come?

Karra: voluntarily?

Russ: yeah.

Karra: there is nothing that we can do.

Russ: saying, “oh please Gray people, come and take us away or come and greet us and meet us and let's work our universal problems”.

Karen: well I don't know but see I remember when I was younger, I remember actually just looking up to the sky and saying, “gosh I wish a UFO would come down and take me away”. I never mentioned what kind, who, anything else but there are often times that I've said that.

Karra: okay, voluntary abductions, there's nothing that we can do. That is interfering. As I was going to say to Russ’s answer, you’re both asking the same question in different ways. Requests, we cannot interfere with. However, if there’s a group of people protesting the group that wants to be
abducted and the UFOs arrive and they abduct them as well, then we can do something. But until the point of interference from another race that is non-voluntary, we can do things about that but voluntary, vocal, witnessed requests, we can’t do anything.

Russ: so a thousand people say, “please come and help our society get out of its low technological level and bring us up to your level” and a hundred ships come to do so.

Karra: they can only help the thousand.

Russ: yeah, but what about the advances that they give these thousand?

Karra: if we come to take them away, that’s interference. We promised when Atlantis was set up that if you guys ever needed help we would help……..

Russ: hmm.

Karra: you see? That’s what I believe and this is just my opinion……

Russ: right.

Karra: it’s not an official policy or anything but my opinion is that’s all that we would do.

Russ: okay, hmm. Oh, by the way…..

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: thank you for the clue on taking notes during this and who says what......

Karra: yeah.

Russ: it will make it easier later on......

Karra: uh-huh.

Russ: going through it. I wish I had been doing this four years ago, I have 400 tapes up there, I don’t know what’s on them.

Karra: hmm. So, that’s what we would do I believe.

Russ: okay.

Karra: my opinion does not matter when it comes to policy. The Hades Base News is an extension of…..

Russ: Hades Base.

Karra: correct, not the extension of Karra Tanaka’s view.

Russ: yes but from the point where you brought it up and talked all the way to your opinion, that was only your opinion, that wasn’t policy right?

Karra: the evacuations and so on is. It is not the Karra News, it’s not the Kiri News or the Russ News or the Karen News or the Mark News, it is the Hades Base News. It is a mouthpiece for us to communicate to you.

Russ: well it’s certainly changed a lot since we started this thing.

Karra: yes it has hasn’t it, it’s grown.

Russ: yes, it just used to be just me and Mark getting some information and maybe a couple guests.

Karra: I think Omal warned you didn’t he?

Russ: no, we didn’t know anything about this until I got my computer and it was like….

Karra: well it was discussed on and off but yes, since the…

Russ: all we talked about was this would be good for future records and we thought the records would be after civilization had taken a dump. We didn’t know it was going to mean now and here while we’re still able to answer for all this stuff.

Karra: Omal knew what was going on.

Russ: well yeah, I wish he clued us in.

Karra: he couldn’t. Why couldn’t he?

Russ: interference.

Karen: because it would be interference.

Karra: and you can add this in. You can add this part in because this is no longer my opinion, this is the way it is, it’s the truth. You see?

Russ: right.

Karra: big difference between my opinion and the truth. Omal knew what was going on, Omal knew what was happening. He knew where it would go, he knows where it’s going and side one is about to turn over.

Russ: okay.




(Tia signals to the next speaker)

(Tia says hi in Durondedunn)

Tia: okay, I’m going to put on our next speaker.

Russ: okay.

(Alana tries an impersonation to start things off)

Alana: hello.

(Russ starts laughing)

Alana: hello.

Russ: hi love, how you doing?

Alana: I’m doing fine.

Russ: good.

Karen: hi.

Alana: yes?

Karen: I have a terrible headache, I can't even hear anything anymore.

Alana: oh. So, who am I?

Russ: what? You’re Alana.

Alana: spoilsport.

Russ: what do you want? You’re pretending to be Karra there for a second.

Karen: you did, you almost sounded just like her.

Alana: almost, well I am her daughter. I am Karra’s eldest daughter.

Karen: uh-huh.

Russ: and unessential base personnel.

Alana: yes, nonessential.

Karen: oh, so typical.

Alana: unessential or nonessential?

Russ: nonessential.

Alana: thank you.

Russ: correct.

Karen: you’re very essential but…..

Russ: well no, the dolphins aren't part of the war effort.

Alana: if there was a war.

Russ: if there was a war, correct.

Alana: but I am definitely essential.

Karen: I don't know, in our government dolphins are very important.

Alana: yes. Okay....

Russ: so anyway, how are you doing Alana?

Alana: I’m doing fine.

Russ: that’s good. We had some fun in Cancun with some dolphins......

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: that was most enjoyable.

Alana: so when are you going to come down and hang out with the dolphins?

Russ: well I did that the one time. You mean for any length of time?

Alana: yes.

Russ: I’ll work on that.

Alana: we'll go riding dolphins in Lake Dolphin, we’ll get you a saddle.

Karen: that sounds like fun.

Alana: ahh, I ride bareback.

Karen: no, I just meant riding the dolphins sounds fun.

Alana: it is fun.

Russ: I'll try to get down tomorrow. Going to the costume party?

Alana: I'm in two minds, I want to go and party but at the moment…..

Russ: you haven’t been to a party in a long time darling.

Alana: yeah, I know. At the moment I feel kind of agitated. I might go.

Russ: well take your girlfriend.

Alana: yeah, I'll take my girlfriend if I go.

Russ: okay.

Alana: but I feel antsy you know?

Russ: from what, something up?

Alana: no, just feel antsy in general.

Russ: hmm, well maybe it’s the pregnancy.

Alana: yeah I think…..well, I’m pretty sure it is.

Russ: yeah, it just tends to do that to every woman doesn’t it Karen?

Karen: makes them antsy?

Russ: yeah.

Karen: I don’t know, no not really, sometimes.

Alana: yeah, it’s just a sometime at the moment.

Karen: yeah sometimes I mean you can just break down and cry for no reason too.

Alana: uh-huh, yeah I’ve done that, frequently. But at the moment I’m just….hmmm.

Russ: right, kind of restless?

Alana: yeah.

Russ: hmm. So anyway darling, what can be your contribution for the webpage this week? I'd like to put a contribution from you, we don’t have many from you.

Alana: yes.....let me see, gossip column.

Karen: oh there you go, ask Alana.

Alana: yeah, ask Alana, let me see.

Karen: like an Ann Landers.

Alana:……..Kee is having an aff…..well not an affair, but having a courting period with Hal. They’re courting, they’re the talk of the base at the moment.

Karen: who’s courting? Hal?

Russ: who's Hal?

Alana: just call him Hal for short…..

Russ: oh, okay.

Alana: he’s a technician.

Russ: oh, all right.

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: okay, courtship of Hal.

Alana: uh-huh. He and his young lady, they’ve been seen in romantic positions in gardens and lakes and swimming pools.

Russ: and here I thought you were the talk of the base.

Alana: well I have been from time to time. Okay, let me see. Festivities, well it looks like the flower harvest is going to be absolutely dismal this year.

Russ: it's just the pink ones.

Alana: yeah, has Kiri told you?

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: oh, okay. So it looks like it’s going to be a bad year on the pink flowers. They should be budding and getting ready to bloom but they haven’t even started budding yet.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: in fact they had another snowstorm up there so that’s looking bad.

Russ: sounds real bad.

Karen: don’t you guys have atriums?

Alana: it’s not so much growing them indoors, it’s the environment that they grow in.

Russ: yeah, they don’t do well indoors, they’ve tried.

Alana: yeah.

Karen: hmm.

Alana: they're limited to just a few patches in the high mountains, they grow at about 11, 12,000 feet.......

Karen: wow.

Alana: and it’s the lack of oxygen, the soil, the amount of sunlight....I suppose yes, I do know a lot about that don’t I? Having a horticultural leaning, biology and horticulture.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: I know….

Russ: uh-huh?

Alana: my contribution is on the flowers of Sirius.

Russ: there you go, perfect.

Alana: okay, now getting back to the pink flowers…

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: the reason that they are not going to be such a good harvest this year is because the winter is still continuing, they haven’t been able to get the sunlight necessary that filters through the snow as it melts to create an almost greenhouse effect over them which normally contributes to having them break open at the right time and then freezing at the right time which gives the essential effect that occurs in the petals and in turn is used in the juices that are in the petals.

Russ: hmmm.

Alana: so therefore by this occurring, the harvest is going to be pretty spartan. Now, with the snow being so deep on top of them, is they're not getting the amount of light necessary for the reactions to occur. And they’re still in a late winter stage, they're starting to green up underneath the snow. They're getting enough light just to start the photosynthesis but not enough for the nutrients to be produced for the plants. So, by this happening, they are in essence still in the winter stage. Now when this has happened in the past, it warms up and the plants seem to put on a sudden spurt of growth and instead of producing flowers it goes into the growth of the plant as it spreads and becomes a much bigger plant. It still flowers but only about a half to a quarter of what it normally would. However….

Karen: what kind of flowers are they?

Alana: they’re kind of a bowl-shaped flower that have a
psychedelic type effect.

Karen: wow.

Russ: the pink ones have a sexually psychedelic effect.

Karen: a sexually psychedelic effect?

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: they heighten the senses. But how come this isn’t going to affect the blue or the red ones?

Alana: because they’re lower down.

Russ: oh I see.

Alana: uh-huh. Now, when normally if there is a mild winter or a normal winter afterwards.......after a bad winter like we're having at the moment and the plants have grown rapidly, normally the following year is a bumper harvest.

Russ: hmmm.

Alana: I remember oh, we found a patch, we were out hiking….

Russ: uh-huh.

Alana: we found a patch and we munched. There was oh, about three girls, four guys, we got it on and we got it on. As you might say, we got it on we banged a gong and then some.

Russ: hmm, so Kiri’s going to make a killing on these this year.....

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: and as I remember last year, you were quite the flower eater yourself.

Alana: yes, this year I can’t.

Russ: no, is that because of your pregnancy?

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: oh, okay. Alright and what I’ll do is I'll put in your comments on the pink flowers….

Alana: uh-huh.

Russ: and then I'll direct a link to Kiri’s comments on the basic what flowers do……

Alana: yeah.

Russ: on the library.

Alana: uh-huh, okay.

Russ: that will work out real well.

Alana: uh-huh but the blue flowers are a much more robust and prevalent flower.

Russ: hmm.

Alana: they're the same genus but because of them being at a lower level, they get more sunlight obviously and their growing season is much earlier. In fact it’s almost a continual growing season for them. In between the blue flowers and the pink flowers is the red flowers and they do have a dormant time. But also, if they’re hit by a frost, the heightened sense is increased and multiplied in them and the same with the blue ones is that a frost amplifies the feeling. With the blues you get a nice, relaxed, mellow just dozing off, being nice and mellow. With the red ones, it becomes much more heightened hyperactivity.

Russ: hmmm.

Karen: must be what colored rooms do to us.

Alana: colored rooms?

Karen: yeah, everyone says that certain colors in the rooms tend to…..

Alana: oh yes, yes.

Karen: play with the emotions.

Alana: uh-huh. Anyway, I’m going to depart, I need to go and relieve myself.

Russ: what a shame.

Alana: don’t want to leave a puddle in the middle of the pyramid do I?

Russ: no.

Karen: nah.

Russ: I’ll be down to see you later babe.

Alana: okay.

Karen: bye Alana.

Russ: bye Alana.

(Tia is back to help make the exchange)

Tia: okay, I’ve got to put on a guest speaker.

Russ: okay.

Karen: I'm going to go get some tea, I'll be right back.

Tia: okay.

(Wing Commander Taal stops by to chat about the new pilot to the base)

Taal: attention.

Russ: hey Taal, greetings and felicitations.

Taal: greetings indeed.

Russ: how do you do?

Taal: I do well, how do you do?

Russ: very well actually.

Taal: thank you.

Russ: we did a bunch of work or I did a bunch of work on the webpage today, tribute to your lovely lady and the arrival of your new trainer.

Taal: yes, new trainer.

Russ: who I’ve heard all kinds of things about since he’s arrived. I know more about him than I think any other pilot including yourself on the entire base right now.

Taal: he is legend……

Russ: sounds like it.

Taal: living legend.

Russ: and that’s throughout Ashtar Command, that’s not just Hades Base.

Taal: correct. He is second-highest scoring ace ever.

Russ: who’s the first?

Taal: gentlemen called Kerah.

Russ: who is no longer with us I take it?

Kerah died saving convoy.

Russ: oh.

Taal: took on odds of sixty to one.

Russ: Jesus.

Taal: shot down ten before arrival of backup, two other backup. Young rookie pilot engage, fight very hard next to him ferociously.
Kerah shot down six more, guns run dry, know importance of convoy getting through. Rammed ship, destroyed lead ship of attacking force, died in process. Young rookie pilot much shot, fought like demons. A hundred and ninety year later young rookie pilot is second-highest scoring.

Russ: oh wow, so the Baron was that rookie pilot coming in huh?

Taal: correct.

Russ: and they beat the attack off?

Taal: he was wounded, only slightly but scored his first five victory.

Russ: wow, became an ace in his first time at bat.

(Russ whistles)

Russ: so this is quite an honor for you to have this gentleman here.

Taal: correct.

Russ: how come the rookies up there are not feeling like it’s such an honor anymore?

Taal: would you?

Russ: I don’t know, I'd take every lesson I could get from this guy and just thank him for it afterwards.

Taal: if the world’s best skier showed up at your hill and said, “ski with me” and picked fault at everything you did, every turn, every stop?

Russ: well I’d probably get a little frustrated after a while.

Karen: that’s called egotistical, a real snob.

Russ: no not on his part, on my part for not taking it to heart.

Taal: the Baron is perfectionist, he is…..

Karen: that doesn’t mean you put people down though.

Taal: he does not put people down, he tells them what…..

Karen: they’re doing wrong.

Taal: correct. He wants them to be old pilots like him, not names and pictures upside down in bar. Not names to be forgotten.

Karen: I mean that’s something that each pilot has to experience don’t you think?

Taal: I think he is giving opportunity for them to not die…..

Russ: right.

Taal: them to live. Thing to remember, no such thing as bad pilot, bad pilot die.

Russ: right. And, the thing is, they’re going to thank him for it after they’ve gone through a few engagements and used what they've learned from him. I think it’s just now they’re feeling a little bit stressed on the matter.

Taal: the fact that no one beat him or get line on him, that he shoot everyone down that he has engaged.

Russ: and including yourself I’m sure.

Taal: I have not engaged yet.

Russ: okay. And you know Mark is going to challenge him.

Taal: no.

Russ: yes, Mark's going to challenge him to World War I planes.

(Ed. note: in the base's holosuites)

Taal: ahhh, this would be entertaining.

Russ: yeah because I figure the Baron is going to pick a nice, red triplane, Mark in probably a Newport or a Spad.

Taal: I put money on Baron.

Russ: I would too, in a hot second just from past experience.

Taal: I have been bet.......I will offer odds.

Russ: you’re not going to take him on yourself?

Taal: am I stupid?

Russ: I’ll put odds on you, I’ve got wine to lose.

Taal: I offer odds of a hundred to one that Mark will not get even one shot on him. Will not get one bullet in his craft.

Russ: well, I wouldn’t touch those odds. I have a feeling you’d win that pretty easily.

Taal: you put one bottle down, I give you 80 back if he win, if he puts one bullet.

Russ: well one bullet, well Mark might get lucky.

Karen: one bottle, only one bottle Russ. Come on, you've got that bet.

Russ: I think I’ll do it, it’s just only one bottle. So what else has been going on? Have you discovered anything from the investigation of the latest engagement?

Taal: we know rookie froze.

Russ: oh okay, that’s why no shots took hit.

Taal: correct.

Russ: and did Katrina come under friendly fire?

Taal: Katrina was hit by plasmic weapons.

Russ: oh, you guys don’t use plasmic.

Taal: correct.

Russ: yeah, lasers.

Taal: Zeta’s do not use plasmic.

Russ: yeah, so who was it?

Taal: we still investigate.

Russ: oh, still don’t know.

Taal: the films show blurred craft….

Russ: hmm.

Taal: which means either using some kind of blurring for nonrecognition…..

Russ: uh-huh.

Taal: or moving fast.

Russ: hmm.

Taal: but I think not moving fast, I think blurred movement.

Russ: hmm, oops, sorry about that.

Taal: which make me think that they are new technology.

Russ: oh, oh.

Taal: we can beat them.

Russ: oh yeah, I mean they did get some kills…… they didn’t, they got some shots, hits, no kills.

Taal: no kills in engagement. Wounded, hits yes, no kills.

Russ: hmm.

Taal: you have bearing of military person?

Russ: ahh yeah, she does.

Taal: walks tall like one of us?

Russ: uh-huh.

Karen: who me?

Taal: yes you.

Karen: do I know of someone or…..?

Russ: no, you, you have military bearing.

Karen: yeah.

Taal: let me speak Russ.

Russ: oh, sorry.

Taal: you walk tall and proud as we do.

Karen: yes.

Taal: were you a service person?

Karen: yes.

Taal: ahh, thank you. What branch?

Karen: the Air Force.

Taal: ahh, you fly?

Karen: no.

Taal: you ground tech?

Karen: yeah, I was operations officer.

Taal: ahh, ground control.

Karen: yeah.

Taal: ahh, we thank people like you. I am leader of squadron and people of your kind very important to us. When we damaged you guide us in.

Karen: yeah.

Taal: we thank your kind and you.

Russ: oh....Karen, this is Taal, Taal, this is Karen.

Karen: hi Taal.

Russ: you guys haven’t met, I just realized that.

Taal: okay, thank you, I depart now. I go and see Katrina.

Russ: thank you Omal, I mean Taal.

Karen: be safe up there Taal.

Russ: take care now.

Taal: I will.

(Tia arrives back just as our guest has to leave)

Karen: what time is it?

Russ: 8:58.

(Tia says hi in Durondedunn)

Karen: hi, that one too? Tia I brought you some Earl Grey…

Tia: oh thank you.

Karen: but I have to pour it into the cup or you can pour it into the cup.

Tia: I’ll pour it into the cup.....

Karen: okay.

Tia: you have to depart I assume.

Kiri: yes I do.

Russ: is your mom coming?

Karen: there’s milk in there….

Tia: uh-huh.

Karen: hey, I’m ahead of the game here.

Tia: have fun at work.

Karen: bye Tia, bye kitty.

Russ: that was an interesting report from Taal, new technology on the horizon there.

Tia: hmm, I’m not worried.

Russ: sounds sort of like stealth technology possibly.

Tia: possibly yes.

Russ: because if they got ambushed like that it could mean that they were undetected until they got jumped.

Tia: I don’t think they got quite that jumped. I mean it’s an ongoing investigation.

Russ: hmm.

Tia: oh well, I’m going to put on the last person......

Russ: okay.

Tia: but first I’m going to have a mouthful of tea. Yes, terrible host there, you’ve got to introduce.

Russ: I thought they’d met already actually until I realized that they really hadn't met yet. Watch out!! Ohhh, that’s going to be a tough one to drink.

Tia: yes, I think that was very nice of Taal to give Karen full respect.

Russ: uh-huh.

Tia: uh-huh. Gave her a lot of respect there actually didn’t he?

Russ: yeah, he recognized the fact that she had been in the service.

Tia: well, they seemed to recognize each other if you know what I mean.

Russ: right.

Tia: that one service person can tell another service person. I think Mark knew that Karen had been in some branch of the service and vice a versa. If you notice they walk very similar, very tall and upright.

Russ: uh-huh.

Tia: neither of them will stoop or......

(Tia has a quick exchange with a cat)

Tia: so I think military persons recognize each other you know? I think it’s in their mannerisms and their walk and it doesn’t matter what nationality, they know, you know?

Russ: uh-huh. Hmmm…..

Tia: oh well, I’m going to put on the last person as we got about half a tape left.

Russ: well you'll be here for afterwards anyway so no matter what, we'll still have time for chatting.

Tia: okay, you got some questions for me later on then?

Russ: I'm working on some.

Tia: okay.

(Kiri has the honor of wrapping things up)

Russ: hey Kiri.

Kiri: yo dude.

Russ: what’s up sweetheart?

Kiri: I’m fine.

Russ: all the girls this evening huh?

Kiri: uh-huh and we've all behaved impeccably except for one guy.

Russ: who, Mark?

Kiri: Taal.

Russ: oh.

Kiri: yes?

Russ: well Taal did get all the women around probably.

Tia: uh-huh.

Russ: it might just take his mind off things.

Kiri: yeah. Well when he was sitting down in the pyramid we had one of the technicians come over and he actually sat down with his head on her lap and she played with his hair as he talked. Played with his ear and everything, he was enjoying that actually.

Russ: I’ll bet.

Kiri: that’s why he sounded a little more distracted than normal. He was lying there on his back with his head in her lap and looking up talking and she’s playing with his hair and his ears and rubbing his nose and......

Russ: good.

Kiri: uh-huh

Russ: that’s good.

Kiri: yeah.

Russ: he needs that distraction.

Kiri: yeah, Teene thinks it’s funny. In fact, Teene’s poking fun at the technician now, now that Taal’s left.

Russ: tell her not to, I think that's a very good and neat gesture.

Kiri: she’s poking fun in fun.

Russ: oh, of course.

Kiri: uh-huh, it’s not malicious.

Russ: I know. Teene’s had her experiences too.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: so anyway Kiri……

Kiri: yes?

Russ: my question is, I’ve noticed that when I’m transcribing Omal, he seems to use one term in particular each week.

Kiri: which is?

Russ: well he changes it each week but each week is like a common theme word he uses.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: like what was the one he got last week? It was one word I kept having, it was……..oh, individuals or individuality.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: that was his theme word. But literally each time he talks there is a new theme word he works over.

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: and I only noticed because I transcribe it and I have to type it out all the time but I hadn’t noticed that until I started going, "hmm"…..

Kiri: now why does he use a theme word?

Russ: I don’t know, that was one of the questions I was going to ask him tonight but he’s not here so I thought I'd ask you.

Kiri: no he’s in a Council meeting.

Russ: oh, he’s at Council? So I thought I would ask you instead.

Kiri: well it is my opinion that if you take all the theme words right?

Russ: right.

Kiri: was that a little squeak? Yes it was. If you take all the theme words, put them together, you'll come up with something important.

Russ: hmm.

Kiri: you might have to put in breaking words like and, are, therefore….

Russ: right, you mean like a big jigsaw puzzle.

Kiri: that’s right. I think….

Russ: we can do it by date.

Kiri: no, you’d have to arrange them in a way. He’s probably coded it in a way and has been waiting for somebody to point out that he picks a theme word.

Russ: hmm, well you wouldn't notice it just from talking to him, you actually have to sit there and type out his words.

Kiri: I think it goes back to…..

Russ: channeling over and over the same word.

Kiri: I think it goes back to big sis’s comments you know dude.

Russ: oh, like what?

Kiri: about Omal knew what was going on long ago.

Russ: yeah, that’s true.

Kiri: where it was going.

Russ: well when I get up to his dimensional level I probably will too.

Kiri: it’s a cute, little furball.

Russ: so anyway…..

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: so we need to, because I want to keep on the same theme because I’m going to put this on the webpage…..

Kiri: okay.

Russ: I want to keep working on Omal’s stuff.

Kiri: all right.

Russ: I don’t want to get off track here.

Kiri: whoa, clever kitty.

(Kiri starts clapping)

Russ: so until I start transcribing and spotting all his theme words, I have to find out where it’s going to.

Kiri: exactly. I don’t think he does it every week.

Russ: well I’ve been noticing more and more.

Kiri: uh-huh but that’s the way Omal works is that with his theme words, there is possibly coding in there. Right, it might not be for you. You see, I don’t have Omal to say, “drop it or not”. After all, it’s not the Kiri’s Base News, as much as one would like it to be.

Russ: yes, of course darling.

Kiri: besides, if it was the Kiri’s Base News, there’d be a picture of me with let’s see…..

Russ: you'd have a whole lingerie line in there…

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: and a little bathing suit line and…..

Kiri: me modeling.

Russ: click here to see Kiri’s latest fashions for this week.

Kiri: click here to undress me with your teeth…………..yes?

Russ: okay, well what would be kind of neat is put a little section in there going, “Omal’s keywords for this week".

Kiri: uh-huh. I think of a movie that Mark’s fond of and it’s….

(speaks a sentence in French)

Kiri: secret messages...."wounds my heart's.....".....did you have to bite?
"Jean has a grande moustache, répétez, Jean have a grande moustache". Ask Mark what that means......

Russ: Battle of Britain or I mean Normandy.

Kiri: oh, spoiling my fun.

Russ: in the invasion code that came over the……

Kiri: I know what I’m going to do.

Russ: hmm?

Kiri: at the end of the session I’m going to download and watch Mark’s reactions. This is going to be fun.

Russ: what's the keyword I use this time?

Kiri: "Jean has a grande moustache, répétez, Jean has a grande moustache."

Russ: okay, "
Jean has a grande moustache, répétez, Jean has a grande moustache."

Kiri: that’s good.

Russ: two years French.

Kiri: two years French?

Russ: uh-huh. Okay, come on baby, I need to put something else to put on the webpage here.

Kiri: okay…..

Russ: I can’t just leave it with this itty bit which I can't put on the webpage anyway.

Kiri: no, no, no. Okay……

Russ: remember, we’re not just doing this for me and you and Mark anymore, we have an audience.

Kiri: no true, we have an audience. Let me see, as Tia unzips the back of my toga......

(Russ whistles again)

Russ: back on track darling.

Kiri: okay coercion, the importance of having a moralistic nature of coercion, being able to understand the difference between right and wrong.

Russ: didn’t we just do this one? I just put this on the web.

Kiri: yes but I’m going to explain in more detail.

Russ: oh okay.

Kiri: okay? That the importance of a positive mental attitude and the morals that are necessary for the correct application. That being of a positive frame of mind and not deviating to negativism and self-serving. For example, coercing a young lady to drop her underwear so that you can have your wicked way with her, that is wrong. Coercing somebody to give you money, that is wrong. Coercing for personal gain at any time is wrong.

Russ: coercing your children to quit crying.

Kiri: that is wrong. I’ve done that and it is wrong.

Russ: I remember it, that’s why brought it up darling.

Kiri: uh-huh, it is wrong. Why is it wrong?

Russ: because it’s not for their own good, it’s for your own good.

Kiri: and, I’m being negligent as a mother, I am not finding out what is wrong. Why are they crying?

Russ: right, you’re just shutting them up.

Kiri: correct.

Russ: and it happens to be this and other children.

Kiri: exactly and I have learned that I should not because one of the times that I did that, Alex was quite sick actually, he spent the whole entire night throwing up. I did it to the Cubs one night and they were quite sick as well. So I make a conscious effort to find out what is wrong.

Russ: good, now I can put this on the webpage…

Kiri: uh-huh.

Russ: this is perfect.

Kiri: and that is something that you really don’t find out is wrong until later. Sometimes children just cry because they feel lonely and that’s something that they have to learn to deal with is being left alone.

Russ: yeah but they cannot answer you to say that is why they're crying. Maybe they don’t know why they’re crying.

Kiri: correct.....correct, until you talk to them and find out what is wrong, you don’t know what is wrong with them.

Russ: and sometimes they’re too young to talk to, even on intimate mode.

Kiri: true, true. So that you do take that time and it goes back to what Tia was saying about morals right? That at that point is the most formative time for the development of psychic morals. That when you are developing psychic morals, you are learning root commands that take a long time to be fully active. What you learn as a child, at a tender age, affects you throughout your whole entire life. That being left alone as a child or coerced to be quiet is not getting to the cause, that is setting down a negative pathway for the parental unit. For the child, it makes them feel unwanted unless you remedy it as quickly as possible which is what I’m doing. I know where I went wrong and I would never do it again intentionally. So, what have I learned by my bad deeds?

Russ: well you learn…

Kiri: Mark needs to get his knees fixed.

Russ: we’re doing that next week.

Kiri: okay, let us continue. No, don’t worry about it. Just tell him when he asks about it, tell him the truth, that Tia and myself have had enough of the pain.

Russ: well you guys should tell him.

Kiri: we will tell him at the same time that you tell him.

Russ: all right.

Kiri: okay? So you have to wait until tomorrow.
