We are due for the 2012 super-moon on saturday night
Dan Mitchell of LUMINOSITY is no longer blogging. Here is an excerpt from his final post:
I am leaving the paranormal/high strangeness field forever. While the history of this blog has been laced with various leaves of absence and returns, this will no longer be the case. This post is for the sake of progeny. I strongly suspect that present events are leading up to a "critical mass" that is now inevitable.On one level, this is a loss to me personally, because I found his ideas so intriguing. His writing was so different than anyone else I've ever encountered. My own ideas on what may be behind this elusive phenomenon were greatly expanded because of his introspective essays.
I owe the long time readers of this blog an explanation and I sincerely hope this post will be enough. I will begin by saying that on some level I suspect that during the writing of some of these posts that I had been inwardly compromised. Having gone over some of my older posts when everything began to come together last month, I was catching periodic errors and mis-judgments that were frankly not becoming of me or anyone else for that matter. Hence the need to ultimately take down all of my posts permanently out of fear of compromising others with ideas that may have not come directly from me as it were.
On another level, he was treading in dark waters. He was articulating malevolent ideas, brutal thoughts of a hostile nature. There were times I truly worried for his sanity.
He shared some experiences that fit cleanly into the UFO abduction lore, and I know he recognized that but he saw something much more sinister at play. He recounted some stories that were so terrifying and strange that it left me at a loss to even comprehend the source of what might have been happening.
I have a very intuitive friend, Anya Briggs, and she thought that some of his darker postings might have even contained an kind of alchemical incantation burred within the text. She saw the potential for nefarious magic within these posts.
Dan implies that his writings "had been inwardly compromised." What does that mean? Was he being compelled to write certain things from a source beyond himself? If so, I understand why he is ending this on-line presence.
I feel I can address this from my own experience.
On March 22nd, 2011 I read a post on LUMINOSITY in the morning. The events shared in that post absolutely amazed me. As I was reading, I felt totally compelled to record it as an audio essay. So I did.

I need to try to describe this feeling of being compelled. As I read it that morning, my first thought was that this would make for a dramatic audio essay, and that thought soon morphed into a desperate compulsion.
It was incredibly difficult to read those words, I stammered and fumbled when I tried to record it, and I needed to edit extensively to remove my shaky muttering. I wanted to walk away and do it later when I was less emotional, but I couldn't. I needed to push through and post it immediately.
When it was up and posted, I sent Dan an email where I wrote: "Why was i so weirdly obsessed with recording this thing???"
The essay is titled Approaching the Post Human Self, and it describes his first-person experiences with some higher intelligence. The event took place on the night of the 2011super-moon. I'll add that we are due for the super-moon of 2012 just five nights from now.
Below is Dan's email, where he gave me permission to read, record and post the essay.
I have to tell you that my previous post was incredibly difficult to write for many reasons. There is so much more to the experience than I have realized and even the present answer that I have (if it is an answer at all) is really only one minuscule aspect of the thing. My guess at this point is that the encounter experience as a whole is indeed transformative, but it caters to us individually for a reason. I have so much more to expound on this whole thing without putting forth a system or solid teaching. It seems to be the most personal thing in the world.
Please feel free to do the audio. Keep me posted.
