Although things seem "almost too quiet" in the open world at the moment, the war in the Secret Space Program world has never been hotter or more intense.
We are no longer getting full intel due to operational security -- but we have strong clues as to what this is leading to.
The art at the top of this article is a professional rendition of the aerial part of the battle that is happening now, based on high-level intel.
This is not at all a normal situation. Due to "masking" technology this war is mostly invisible to us, but there are traces of the battle that we can measure.
The teardrop-shaped craft are of the Draco, and the triangular "chevron" craft are a new and unexpected surprise attack from what appears to be the Alliance.
We will provide the full context in this article to help you understand what is going on now, and where it may be leading.
In order to set up the story, it is necessary to frame the expansive new view that is required through some little-known but conventional examples.
[Note: The article will undergo updates that will be added in red after it is first posted, over the next 24 hours. We will notate them here as it unfolds.]
PART ONE: CARGO CULTS AND THE SECRET SPACE PROGRAM
Take a look at the device you are reading these words on right now. It's a part of your everyday routine to use it. You don't even think that much about it.
The gadget generally works the way it is supposed to. Although you don't know everything, you learned how to use it and can function with it.
You can read articles, play videos with impressive production effects, talk to people who you can see on the screen, and order goods and services delivered.
With just a few clicks, you can guarantee that in as little as 24 hours, someone will arrive at your doorstep with a box containing whatever you want.
You don't have to do any work to make those items. Nor do you have to go anywhere to find them. They just manifest as if by magic.
EVERYTHING SEEMS ORDINARY
Now take a look at your surroundings. If you are indoors, notice things like glass windows, carpeted floors, electric appliances and the clothing you wear.
You probably have a wallet containing plastic cards that can get you the things you want just by swiping them through a machine with buttons.
Look at the materials your surroundings are made of, the functions they perform and the comforts they afford you. All very normal.
Yet if you projected someone from even a few hundred years ago into your situation, they would be dazzled by the mysterious things they saw.
If they were then returned to their own vicinity, they would soon tell tales of meeting mystical "gods" in a heavenly realm with inexplicable magic and wizardry.
EVERYTHING YOU EXPERIENCE BECOMES "NORMAL"
You can also jump on a plane and travel vast distances that would have taken months, either by horse or by boat, before the railroad was invented in 1804.
You can now travel fast enough that the time your body expected to be day becomes night -- and vice versa.
If you are in a car, train or plane, you are still inside a familiar craft.
The seats, the windows, the decor and what you see outside the craft is all completely non-challenging to your belief systems. Everybody knows this stuff.
LOTS OF DIFFERENT PEOPLE TO MEET
You see people of all different races in the course of your daily routine -- both in person and in other forms. Asians, Latinos, Caucasians, people of African descent and others.
You are not in the least bit surprised or unsettled by the differences in how they look. It's all very normal to you.
It's only when something or someone new comes along that, for a brief time, your entire reality can turn upside down.
Soon, however, even a radical new change -- like discovering a new and different race of people -- becomes a normal, everyday part of life.
Thayer Watkins, a faculty member at San Jose State University, is one of many scholars to have covered the intriguing phenomenon of "cargo cults" that formed in some of the South Pacific islands.
Most of these islands were in an area called Melanesia, to the northeast of Australia. This area was right near Japan in the theater of battle during World War II.
Several different Melanesian islands that had lived in almost complete isolation were suddenly contacted by mysterious-looking people with white skin during the war.
Military troops flew in with advanced technology, concerned that these islands could be infiltrated by the enemy and used as bases to mount new attacks.
Australia and New Zealand were Allied countries and there were fears that Japan would try to invade them by air or by sea from the northeast.
These islands were also used as staging areas to fight active and bloody battles, such as in Guadalcanal, which is within the Solomon Islands in the map below.
Hence, Melanesia suddenly became an area of key tactical significance in WWII, providing a very dynamic example of "enculturation" in 20th century history.
This is of far greater significance to our current situation than almost anyone realizes.
The people of Melanesia were unaware of the greater world around them.
As far as they were concerned, Melanesia was the world, and everyone there was to know lived there.
The idea that their population was very small, and there were far greater places to live than where they were, never even occurred to them.
Nor could they imagine technology beyond the primitive level they had attained on their own.
PROF. THAYER WATKINS ON THE 'CARGO CULTS'
Here is the excerpt from our San Jose State University professor that helps us get this discussion started.
This is an issue of key importance to the insider world that I have heard about for years. After following up on this research lead, I now understand why.
We have added images to strengthen the point. Take a look:
Prof. Thayer Watkins on "Cargo Cults"
After World War II, anthropologists discovered that an unusual religion had developed among the islanders of the South Pacific.
It was oriented around the concept of cargo, which the islanders perceived as the source of the wealth and power of the Europeans and Americans.
This religion, known as the Cargo Cult, held that if the proper ceremonies were performed, shipments of riches would be sent from some heavenly place.
It was all very logical to the islanders.
