    Recently you mentioned there are days that go by where you talk with no one, so I was pleasantly surprised that you turned the camera on yourself in the latest expedition video.

    I have a feeling that you’re preparing to make yourself available for guest spots on other platforms such as Joe from the Carolinas, Dark Journalists and/or join up with other panel guests. Or perhaps invite others to join in the conversation with you?
    Yes?
    I'd absolutely love to do a thing with Joe. I've been invited on a number of radio shows recently, but the only one I've accepted was with Daniel Liszt (the Dark Journalist) last year — and of course Kerry Cassidy's recent livestream tribute to Bob Dean.

    I have to say, if I may, I really dislike the time-limited, often very haphazard/chaotic, and sometimes rather unprofessional live radio show format. I'd far rather do something 'properly', as it were. Ever since the start of Project Camelot, I've always regarded quality as far more important than quantity. I feel strongly there's WAY too much 'quantity' of people's voices at the moment. It's a real cacophony sometimes.

    Many important signals get utterly drowned in the noise — which is increasing steadily all the time as everyone with a computer and a microphone clamors, often narcissistically, to be heard. It's a major problem that not that many people are talking about.

    Bill, Am a long-time big fan of you the day that you started Project Camelot with Kerry Cassidy and also when you continued your separate ways ... I know you may get tired and/or irritated if anyone ask questions about your connection to Scientology. (I have my own experiences with them last 3 decades).

    But love to read simple answers to some basic questions:

    01. How, when & why did you become connected to Scientology?
    02. Did you become an official member or you had indirect contacts (like me).
    03. Do you see your (former) connection to Scientology as a burden maybe not wanting to be associated with them anymore? Or do you see them as just a phase in your live and you grew beyond them?
    04. How much has Scientology (maybe just temporarily) influenced you?
    05. Have you ever done, or would you want to make a (critical) "Special" about Scientology's Role in Mass media, Hollywood, Politics, Ufology, Conspiracy Research etc.
    06. I know personally ex-Scientology members that joined Ronsorg(dot)com they claim to be different (better?) ... How do you see the new spinoff?
    07. I sincerely hope I did not offend or insult your intelligence & integrity ... am just really curious! Maybe you can make a Special Vlog about that!

    Keep Up The Good Work

    Sincerely & cheers,
    John Kuhles

    After all these years I still don't have one reliable answer to the biggest Q and am always astounded that interviewers rarely ask it - like no one asked Bob Dean.

    Sorry, this one question is not one question by nature. I know it's unanswerable without possibly a lot adjoining explanations, but simple is OK. I'm very curious what you've decided is the most likely answer after so many years of cutting edge data gathering.

    IF it even exists, how would you describe the nature of the human soul?

    One, where does it start? Has Bill Ryan always existed, is he billions of years into travel?

    Do you agree with Tom Campbell who calls it an 'individuated unit of consciousness' - and our temporary earth personality (of which there are many other offshoots in the universe at a time) dissolves into it's greater self at birth and the sum of data once called Bill Ryan doesn't continue, but other individuations of the greater soul continue to manifest as others, in a long quest to reduce entropy?

    Or, does Bill Ryan stay Bill Ryan through many sequential lifetimes, possibly creating repeating soul families, learning, growing and eventually evolving/dissolving (back?) into a greater self.

    Or, are we temporary and/or loosh generating constructs in an advanced beings'... or rogue AI's desperate to stay in existence.... virtual reality game?

    Or?

    What especially throws me about the 'nature of soul' at all are the reports of advanced alien's ability to create souls and/or capture souls, store souls for future use, and put them into bodies. It scares me that possibly you can advance in a universe to the point of the ability to 'make' souls. What would that imply about a 'soul'?

    My personal view at this time is that this answer is way more fantastical and unimaginable than our minds can fathom, and especially has nothing to do with any easy to swallow/follow religious explanation.

    Thank you very much in advance!
    Well, the soul (or one's one core spirit, or fundamental essence — we have a semantic problem here, in part!) is
    • Eternal
    • Indestructible
    • Not invulnerable (bad things can happen to it)
    • A potential source of knowledge, creation and manifestation — of anything.
    It also has a core personality (somewhat influenced by different 'body personalities' each lifetime, culture, socialization, and much else, but the core is there) — and a core personal mission. The latter is why we humans have a sense of purpose... even though it's sometimes elusive and unclear, and can be non-obvious to tap into. We carry it with us across lifetimes.

    I've never experienced the 'soul families' thing — though we all have 'old friends' (and opponents!) that we continually meet up with over and over again. That's not to dismiss the concept, but I have no personal knowledge of it.

    01. How, when & why did you become connected to Scientology?

    Back in 1984, I did Werner Erhard's est training in London. I got a huge amount of benefit from it, was pretty astounded at how well it worked, and immediately wanted to know where on earth all these techniques and processes came from. It was like a huge magic box that I'd never suspected existed.

    I immersed myself in Werner Erhard's biography, and realized it was really all repackaged Scientology — certainly all the parts that were powerful and effective.

    (Aside: my then-partner Angi was on est staff at the time, and was the personal assistant to Erhard's sister; so indirectly, I got to know the organization pretty well.)

    02. Did you become an official member or you had indirect contacts (like me).

    So I started reading one or two of Hubbard's basic books, and everything I read made total sense. I discussed it with another person who I'd shared the est experience with, who was a former Church of Scientology member, and they strongly advised me not to go ANYWHERE NEAR the 'Church' — but instead find a 'Free Zone' auditor (counselor). So that's what I did. I was never a member of the 'Church'.

    I'd give the same very strong advice to anyone now. (In fact, if any friend of mine had an intention to do anything at all with the official Church of Scientology, I'd probably do whatever I could to physically restrain them. Not a joke. )

    03. Do you see your (former) connection to Scientology as a burden maybe not wanting to be associated with them anymore? Or do you see it as just a phase in your live and you grew beyond them?

    No burden at all. And nothing to hide. I've always been open about it. I don't proselytize (promote), but at the same time it's no secret. I'm happy to talk about it for as long as anyone else wants me to. It's a bit like talking about being a Buddhist.

    It's not a 'former' connection, either. But rather like learning meditation or yoga (these are analogies), once one's learned the skills and techniques one can apply them to oneself in one's own time, unless one's fallen into a hole and needs another experienced person to lend a hand. (This does happen!)

    When I was in Switzerland, I was on the Ron's Org Committee for a while. ('Ron's Org' is the premier 'Free Zone' organization, unconnected with the Church of Scientology, that continues to offer both Hubbard's original untampered-with work, and the significant development of it that was pioneered by his colleague and protégé Bill Robertson.)

    But on my desert island here in Ecuador, I keep connected with one or two well-trained friends over the internet, and the rest if the time I fly solo if I ever need to. The last formal 'level' I completed is called SOL 1, just last month. I did that on my own.

    04. Have you ever done or would you want to make a (critical) "Special" about Scientology's Role in Mass media, Hollywood, Politics, Ufology etc.

    Never.

    05. I know personally ex-Scientology people that joined Ronsorg(dot)com they claim to be different (better) ... how do you see
    them?

    They're the highest quality people: solid, sane, highly aware, pleasant, very able, and utterly ethical. Some of them are remarkable human beings by any standards. Many of them I still count as friends. See my #03 above.

    06. I sincerely hope I did not offend or insult your intelligence & integrity ... am just really curious! Maybe you can make a Vlog about that!

    Not at all. I could write (or say) far more. It's a huge subject... the above is the tip of an extremely large and interesting iceberg.

    Hi bill
    And thx for opening not just this thread,but yourself for questions.i have a note pad a spotlight and a sound proof room Waiting for you.
    Do you think that the Avalon forums have been the subject of attempts at infiltration from groups with there own agenda,for there own purposes,not neccesarily good?
    What a fascinating question. Actually, no, I don't. We do know that one or two individuals have managed to gain entry who we think were up to no good, one of them for sure. But on the whole, I actually think that the forum is pretty untainted. When we get periodic bouts of full moon craziness, as best I know and can tell, it's just normal human craziness (you know what I mean! ), and nothing stirred up directly by any malevolent group.

    The firewalls, fire sprinklers, and intruder detection systems we have (for almost all of which we have Paul to be deeply grateful for) really do work highly effectively.

    Default Re: Bill Ryan's personal Question-and-Answer thread. Pile it on. :)

    Quote Posted by NX.P (here)
    Back in the 80s a gentleman named John Algeo posed the following hypothetical, but by no means impossible, situations intended for the individual to decide how they would respond in each situation, given a very limited range of possible responses. Place yourself imaginatively in these circumstances and answer honestly:
    • FIRST, let’s suppose that you are walking down the street in a big city late at night. You are alone. Suddenly out of the shadows steps a very large man who shoves you against the wall of a building and says with a threatening tone of voice, “Give me your money. All of it.” You instinctively take a few steps to the right to get away, but he follows and pulls a knife, saying, “Now!” As you are fumbling for your wallet, suddenly you realize that now directly behind the man is an uncovered manhole. If you quickly give him a push, he will fall into it, and quite likely be badly hurt.What do you do? (A) Do you give the mugger your money? (B) Or do you push him into the manhole?
    Push him into the manhole.

    An interesting supplementary question would be if I was potentially protecting or taking responsibility for someone else who was maybe more vulnerable, like a woman, an elderly person, or a child.
    I'd probably act even faster, and I'd not care what happened to him. I'd have no sympathy. He has to deal with the consequences of his own life choices and actions. That's just the way it works.
    • SECOND, suppose you are a policeman walking down that same city street at midday when you see a chimpanzee that has escaped from a local pet shop. The street is full of pedestrians, and the chimpanzee—obviously in a state of intense agitation—is attacking some of the people. It has already bitten several of them. What do you do? (A) Do you get on your walkie-talkie and call for the animal detail to come with tranquilizer darts? (B) Or do you pull out your revolver and shoot the chimp?
    I'd NEVER shoot the chimp. (Or any other animal, unless there was absolutely no alternative to saving a human life.) I have a profound respect and sense of value for all animal life.
    • THIRD, suppose you are a physician. One of your patients is a young woman who is pregnant, in her fifth month. Earlier in her pregnancy you prescribed a drug which she took for some time. Now you have discovered that the drug has side effects, hitherto unknown, that can damage a fetus. Tests reveal that the fetus is indeed malformed. The woman requests an abortion. What do you do? (A) Do you refuse to perform the abortion? (B) Or do you perform the abortion?
    I'd do exactly as the woman wished.
    • FOURTH, you are still a physician. A woman in her mid-twenties and in excellent health comes to you. She is in her fifth month of pregnancy, but unmarried. She says that she is unwilling to have a child and requests you to abort the pregnancy. She is sexually active, uses birth control only sporadically, and has had abortions before. What do you do? (A) Do you refuse to perform the abortion? (B) Or do you perform the abortion?
    I'd decline to perform the abortion — but I'd be fully aware that she could always go to another physician the very next day, and almost certainly would.
    • FIFTH, you are driving your automobile in very heavy traffic. You are stopped at an intersection by a red light. There is a long line of cars behind you. Another car from the rear of the line drives forward on the shoulder of the road and pulls up on your right. That car edges forward, and the driver clearly intends to cut in ahead of you. The light turns green. What do you do? (A) Do you let the other driver cut in ahead? (B) Or do you step on the gas in your car to prevent the other car from cutting in?
    I'd always let the other driver in ahead of me. (Why not? )
    • SIXTH, you are the President of the United States. The Island of Guam has been attacked and captured by a Far Eastern power which claims it has rightful title to that island on historical grounds. The present inhabitants of the island overwhelmingly want it to remain an American protectorate, but the Far Eastern power is on the island and in military command of it. They have also rejected any discussion of the sovereignty of the island and have declared that the only issue they will discuss is how to evacuate those islanders who want to leave. What do you do? (A) Do you begin setting up evacuation procedures? (B) Or do you order the U.S. military forces to prepare for an invasion of the island?
    I'd order the military to defend the island. The determining factor is the wish of the inhabitants.
    • SEVENTH, you are Director of the FBI. A terrorist has hidden an atomic bomb on the island of Manhattan. It is set to detonate within a few days unless he is paid several million dollars, ten friends of his who are in jail for terrorism are released, and safe passage to Libya is arranged for all of them. The FBI has the terrorist in custody, but has no leads on the location of the bomb. One of your subordinates suggests that there is only one way to discover the location of the bomb: subject the terrorist to physical torture. What do you do? (A) Do you wait, hoping that the terrorist will have a change of heart? (B) Or do you tell your subordinate to try physical torture?
    Interesting. Shades of Kiefer Sutherland (a) as Jack Bauer in 24, and (b) as Tom Kirkman in Designated Survivor — a very opposite character. The scripts would be 100% different.
    In Designated Survivor, Kirkman would refuse to hurt a soul despite all his generals insisting on a violent solution, and instead would think of something fantastically clever (likely involving magnanimous diplomacy with a third party) to retrieve the entire situation AND also bring the terrorists to justice. But the problem is, that doesn't always work out so magically in real life.
    I have to say that if the choice was between causing the injury or death of one person, and allowing the injury of death of millions, for me it would be a straightforward equation to give the necessary order. And I have a keen sense of justice, so I would NOT be happy letting genuine terrorists go free just to recreate the same scenario later, here or in another country. (Where these things happen makes no difference.)
    I would like to think, though, that rather like Kirkman, I'd explore every other creative option, and I'd be sure there would definitely be some.
    • EIGHTH, you are the mother of a newborn child. Your child has been kidnapped by a terrorist group and is being held hostage for the release of political prisoners—other terrorists in jail. The leader of the terrorist group has been caught, but refuses to reveal the whereabouts of the others or of the baby. The FBI tells you that they have no clues, but are considering the use of “pressure”—that is, physical torture—to discover where the kidnappers have the baby. What do you do? (A) Do you ask them not to use physical violence on the kidnapper? (B) Or do you tell them you hope they will do whatever is necessary?
    Whatever's necessary. In particular, to protect or rescue a child. That would be very clear.
    • FINALLY, you are a member of a jury that must sentence a convicted murderer. This is his fifth conviction of murder. Twice he killed during the course of armed robberies. Once he was a hired killer. Once he killed a fellow inmate in prison. This time he murdered a kidnap victim. Your choice is to vote for life imprisonment, with automatic review for parole in ten years, or for the death penalty. What do you do? (A) Do you vote for life imprisonment with possibility of parole? (B) Or do you vote for the death penalty?
    The death penalty. A man with that history has forfeited his right to be a living member of the human race.

    What is you opinion on:

    * David Icke's shape shifting theory
    * Star seeds, ET soul migrations, hybrid souls
    * Advice for people who have been down the rabbit hole and are struggling to integrate that with RL
    • David Icke's shape shifting theory.

      I'm 100% convinced it happens. Exactly WHAT is happening, I'm not sure.
    • Star seeds, ET soul migrations, hybrid souls.

      Well, those are all 'New Age' terms, which I'm wary of. Simply because they're easily misunderstood, or understood in different ways. They also have quite a lot of baggage (implications, connotations) attached, some of which might be rather ungrounded.
      — Star Seeds (if that means souls/spirits who have incarnated from other systems/planets): Yes, of course. All of us reading this, we've not been on Planet Earth forever. ('Forever' is a long time!)
      — ET soul migrations (if that means an ET walking into a human body and taking over): Yes. I'm convinced this can sometimes happen, too.
      — Hybrid souls: I'm afraid I don't know what that means at all. Delighted to offer a response if you can clarify.
    • Advice for people who have been down the rabbit hole and are struggling to integrate that with Real Life.

      Once you've taken the 'red pill', you can't go back. It's like deciding to move house, completing the sale, and then the removal truck comes to start taking all your stuff to a new home. You can't change your mind then, even though it's highly stressful and you're surrounded by an enormous unholy chaotic mess that suddenly feels like a really bad idea. There's no reversing out of it. You're committed.

      The circle of friends you have makes a big difference, and also (of course) your life partner. The real trouble often kicks in when those closest to you start to think you're crazy.

      Sometimes, you have to change your friends, and maybe change your partner. Really. It all depends how tolerant (or INtolerant) they are to your new worldview. If I had a partner who thought I'd suddenly become unhinged, and was being pretty unpleasant about it, I might not stay with them for very long — depending on where the unpleasantness was coming from.

      Sometimes, when someone close to you is upset or even angry at a change they see in you, they're really processing their OWN discomfort, and externalizing it all. If so, then you have to support THEM, and not expect the support to flow the other way to you. They may be having a harder time than you are. They may be frightened they'll lose you.

      In practice then, that means not arguing, defending, or counter-attacking. Don't get into 9/11 fights (or UFO fights, or 'Q' fights. ) Or even Trump fights. Don't get into any fights at all.

      Just show those closest to you that you're exactly the same person, with the same priorities and personal values, that you still love them, and you're still happy to take care of the kids, do the washing up, and anything else which you did before. Think of it that those around you simply need reassurance that you've not gone somehow renegade on them. Then that'll help a very great deal.

    Rock, from a few decades ago. Zeppelin, Creedence, Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Crosby, Stills and Nash.

    Almost anything that Alex Jones plays as his bumper music. (But I also love instrumental and classical guitar. And John Lennon.)

    Hi Bill,

    How have you got on with your amateur radio set up? A few of us offered advice with antennas, feeder, etc.

    Have you got to grips with all the controls of the Yaesu 857D?

    Oh boy.

    Well, here's a true story. Joe from the Carolinas was asking me just the same thing a few weeks ago. He's just starting to have all the slings and arrows aimed in his direction. They can hurt if one doesn't have one's shields up.

    I explained to Joe that over the years I've developed quite a rhino hide. I really have. Two compact pieces of advice there are:
    1. Don't read the stuff.
    2. There's no need to get upset about anything that's just plain untrue.
    Pretty much the next day, I fell on my nose. I even joked to Joe that I'd had my come-uppance for stupidly boasting about my super-thick skin. Even Achilles had his Heel.

    My own Achilles' Heel is what happens when there's a kind of betrayal. In my case, that means a sudden turnaround from someone I'd simply never expected it from. Like someone I thought was a friend, or an ally, or someone who had at least a good grasp of the truth and whom I respected, even if they weren't a close friend.

    When THEY suddenly turn, that does hurt. That's happened a few times now in the last couple of months (here on the forum), and I still have the bruises. I'm expecting I'll always have that particular sensitivity, and it's no fun.

    Thanks so much!

    Awakening: clearly there is an information/internet/leak driven 'wake up' going on, but is there something subtler happening, and, if so what?

    Cosmic Law: is there any, and what might it consist of?

    What are the chances that Earth accommodates some much more advanced civilisations than us?

    Dimensions: these beings and objects that phase in and out: are there physical dimensions occupying the same space?

    thanks for all you do.
    we have subcontracted the business of healing people to Companies who profit from sickness.

    I've got a few questions. I would love to know more about the following:

    1. What made you leave the teaching profession (a career I once contemplated) in the mid-seventies?

    2. During your previous life as a management consultant you must have picked up a great deal of experience and know-how in getting teams to interact more effectively in the work place that I think would be of much interest and benefit to other Avalon members.

    Specifically: how did you used to tackle the common problems associated with dysfunctional work environments?

    Examples could possibly include (but not necessarily restricted to) to individuals cherry-picking tasks to the detriment of others, knowledge not spread effectively through the organisation thereby leading to personal fiefdoms , people monopolising information thereby causing the company real skill shortages if these people leave, and so on. I am sure that there are countless other examples, but these few in my opinion do the most damage. These are issues I have had to tackle in the past and I would love to hear your take on them.

    Are you an optimist or a pessimist in terms of the future, both in the short and long term, of humanity? Can you explain your reasons?

    This is a fantastically interesting thread, Bill. Thank you for being willing to give so much of your time and energy.
    I'm a realist, but also very much an optimist. If I wasn't, I'd have incarnated somewhere else last time I had the chance. (Not a joke!)

    I'll condense my expansion on that as much as possible. (If that doesn't sound too Irish. )
    • I don't think the good outcome is certain. I just think it's probable. It's worth fighting for. (And coming back for.)
    • The influx of remarkable children (starseeds, indigos, call them what you will) tells us that others, too, think it's worth coming here to lend a hand because the game is still on, and wide open. If it was all a stacked hand, a fixed game, with no chance against the rigged NWO casino, they'd not be coming here at all. There'd be no point.
    • I do think there's a rising wave of consciousness, awareness, responsibility and ability across the planet. It's a VERY wide bell curve, of course, with all extremes in each direction. But I think the entire bell curve is gradually moving, and has been for a while.
    • Things may get more challenging before they get better. The NWO/globalists may be like a cornered tiger. That's where things may get most dangerous.
    • I do think we may be getting subtle help from all kinds of invisible sources.
    • I do think that some of our enemies or opponents are unseen, as well.
    • It's primarily a spiritual war, and Planet Earth is at least one battleground. That's been said many times, but it's 100% true.

    Hi Bill,

    How have you got on with your amateur radio set up? A few of us offered advice with antennas, feeder, etc.

    Have you got to grips with all the controls of the Yaesu 857D?
    Ha !!!

    No.

    But that sounds too brutal an answer just on its own.

    It became less of a priority to get to grips with it all when I began to realize that there was no imminent need-to-be-off-the-grid-right-now cataclysm coming any time soon. But I'm pleased I have the equipment, and I'd be confident I can make it all work if I needed to. (E.g. if the grid went down, and stayed down.) But being a radio ham just for its own sake — other than for practice — isn't that high on my long list of priorities.
