From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Fri, 24 Aug 2012 06:40:16 -0400 Archived: Fri, 24 Aug 2012 06:40:16 -0400 Subject: The History We Don't Know - Cox Source: Billy Cox's Blog De Void http://tinyurl.com/8nkq89b Thursday, August 23, 2012 "With rare exceptions, the source documents portray a continual strategic manipulation of what the public should hear from government authorities about the phenomenon." -- Dr. Michael Swords The History We Don't Know by Billy Cox The most important book on the origins of our current policy on The Great Taboo - UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry - arrives at one of the most portentious moments in human evolution. Primary author Dr. Michael Swords knows this. He has no expectations of success, among either popular audiences or in academic circles. At a forbidding 580 pages, UFOs and Goverment is essentially dead on arrival. And not necessarily because people don't read anymore, but perhaps because they can't stick with it. A recent Newsweek cover story broke the bad news. Next year, for the first time, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders will list "Internet Addiction Disorder" as the new frontier in digital culture. Memory degradation, heightened anxiety, compulsive behaviors, eroding attention spans - the expanding litany of fallout from our addiction to the virtual world can now be quantified as it lights up pleasure receptors on brain maps, a scenario one researcher likens to "electronic cocaine". Chinese studies are identifying a "shrinkage of 10 to 20 percent in the area of the brain responsible for processing of speech, memory, motor control, emotion, sensory and other information."
