The rift in the Space/Time Continuum during the 1950s would not have occurred without the help of evangelist, Billy Graham. His whole focus on Jesus Christ opened "The Door", so to speak, to incredible spiritual energy that permeates the world to this day.
The vision of a high tech society that watches over us came to the forefront in the 50s. It was as if "First Contact" was made with aliens and then forgotten about except in Area 51 where something still remains.
The mystical communications of these advanced civilizations took root in Gene Roddenberry, Issac Asimov, Robert Heinlen, Ron Hubbard, George Lucas, Kurt Vonnegut and others(e.g. myself).
Deep-seated memories surfaced from science fiction, rock and roll and Billy Graham's sermons.
If you go through entries in this blog on Jesus Christ and new age Christianity, you'll see where I'm coming from on these concepts.
There's no doubt that the energy sources reverend Graham contacted were and are real. How they might be interpreted, however, is another matter.
