Like an Angel? Or other worldly being? Or my cat? When you say Vested Interest, do you mean someone whose life (or livelihood) depends on your decision, or someone who can alter my path? Hm. Much to chew on there.
The tough part here might be that the kid walking along that dangerous road doesn't even know that he has company now (and HAS HAD for every step he has ever made.) He thinks he is alone.
WELL, I've never though that I was alone. Too many things happening in my life (previous to all of THIS) and presently, that are just too coincidental to be COINCIDENTAL. You know what I mean?
And what of the "company"? What would you even call it? Extraterrestrial might be appropriate if it would mean "even MORE of this Earth"
From my own POV, the "company" could be called anything you want. It's not the specifics that matter; it's what you do with that information.
Hey folks what do you expect from an old man ywho has spent the weekend at a UFO conference?
AHA!!! A haha! So you were there!
But I happened to hear a line on TV last night. It was from "The Unit", which I feel a certain kinship to. The "Unit" had put one of its recruits through a battery of confusing tests of disinformation and mental turns. .... the kid saw through it all ..... passed and was accepted .... but it wasn't easy .... and the line from the older instructor was " You think I am going to put my life in the hands of someone I can outsmart?" twigsnapper
To me, it means that there can be more than one right path and also that the path most choose may not always be the "best" path. I see many who choose the most expedient or self-preserving path (nothing wrong w/ that), but choosing to save a friend, even if it was not a situation warranting such noble behavior, IS HONORABLE. I've never watched that show before. I think I'll tune in next Tuesday.
Isn't that show based on a book? Inside Delta Force by Eric Haney. I've heard very good things about that book. I'll see if I can find it at my library.
But we digress. I wanted to discuss the Caroline Group not their social and economical implications. I'll see if I can find the links from the forums.
