Thanks, I have made the correction.

OK, I have cooled off to the extent that I now have this item posted to my website as a "Hypothetical Ultimatum." It is posted in conjunction with my "End Game" essay, q.v. Yesterday I did distribute some copies of it at a local college, just as a test. As it now stands, I suppose that I could be accused of incitement to riot, but that would be a bit of a stretch I would think. Am I being a provocateur, or merely being provocative?
By reposting my hypothetical scenario, you would only be fulfilling your role as an observer and journalist of fringe matters.
What I am doing is pointing out an obvious weakness in our Modern system, or what might even be considered to be its fatal flaw. It is very convenient and very efficient to be able to carve up reality the way we do, and it may also be mistaken. We suppose the spiritual realm to be personal and subjective, and so in the "mundane" world it is just survival of the fittest, everything goes in favor of that sacred "bottom line." This hypothetical division of reality is being underwritten by the trillions of government dollars going into secular science and education.
The Establishmnet likes to suppose that the only alternative to its present system would be a theocratic fascism, a la the Aryan Nation or Nation of Islam. It uses this popular fear, along with the trillions of tax dollars, to help enforce a strict adherence to the Modern Dualist Metaphysic.
I am suggesting that the Eschaton will, at the very least, put an end to business-as-usual. And the longer we postpone pondering the imponderable, the more unthinkable it will become.
Needless to say there is a great deal of floating anxiety and paranoia. The natives are restless. If we cannot provide a constructive channel, Chaos will have its way.
Attempting to preempt Chaos may require some very risky moves, such as suggested in the Hypothetical Ultimatum. Pelican & Co. are just as aware of this as you or I, and it would be unreasonable for us to suppose that we are not in one of their contingency files. I sent a copy of the HU to Pelican before sending it to you. There has been no response, and I expect none. When the Eagle flies, it flies alone.
If you choose to cross-post the HU, I would suggest attaching this note. I will add this note to my website.
Ooops! Wrong again! Following this is the response from Dr. P.
(Again, you may want to include these in any cross-posting.)
I will not respond directly, but I will say this to you.
The Modern System invites disobedience ("terrorism"(?)) as being a traditional way to get across information that is otherwise maginalized by its own version of Reality. Ususally, the marginal information is further marginalized by the context of disobedience, but not necessarily. This is a risky business, and we live in risky times.
If there is going to be disobedience concerning the definition of Reality, then I am volunteering to serve as that lightning rod. It is up to them and the rest of you or 'us.'
