“I imagine that [the end of the world] would constitute a challenge for the Intelligence Community, if not the Director of Central Intelligence, in particular.”
In our first interview, Dan Throop Smith talks about his contacts within the Intelligence Community, strange phenomena and why we must live in the Best Possible World, where all good things must come to an end.
Dan T. Smith is the son of President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s tax advisor, Dan Throop Smith. Smith became interested what the government knows about paranormal phenomena in the 1980s. In the early 1990′s he joined Rosemary Ellen Guily, a famous paranormalist, in an investigation of crop circles in Britain. Shortly after Smith began looking into government complicity in a cover-up of an eschatological phenomena problem, he was introduced to a CIA analyst named Ron Pandolfi.
Smith and Pandolfi have been friends ever since, and Smith often blogs about the latest gossip passed on to him by Pandolfi.
“We all know that world-views do keep changing. Our present worldview is dominated by modernism or scientific materialism, which has been very inimical to every spiritual tradition. I labor under the impression that not only is the paradigm of scientific materialism vulnerable, but, in fact, there are quite a few individuals, more or less associated with the international intelligence community, who have very specific information concerning ongoing phenomena which, when considered as whole, would shatter what we commonly refer to as the modern scientific worldview. The only problem is how best to disclose the information to the rest of the world … I am claiming that I have sufficient, semi-privileged information to puncture the very fragile structure that constitutes scientific materialism, and that, were you to care about saving humanity, I could, at the very least, point you in the right direction. Is this an offer that we can afford to refuse? How do we wish to look this gift-horse in the mouth? “ — Dan Throop Smith
Question: You often mention the U.S. government has a “phenomenology problem.” Why? What have you heard from senior U.S. officials?
Dan Throop Smith: Excellent question … It was [CIA official] Ron Pandolfi who told me, almost 17 years ago, that the U.S. Government had a phenomenology problem. This was the first time that I had heard this word in that context. And I very distinctly remember telling him that he probably would regret having used that particular word. Feel free to ask him, if he does so regret.
Why does the U.S. Government have a phenomenology problem? Well, I would suggest that is has to do with the “Disturbing Message” that was introduced to me by (alleged ex-Air Force intelligence officer) Rick Doty, back in that same time-frame. Rick refused to divulge this disturbing message. But, as Pandolfi well knows, I have interpreted that message to have an eschatological context.
Question: We understand that you met with Chris Straub of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, in 1995, when the committee was actively involved with the transfer of the Defense Intelligence Committee STAR GATE paranormal program to the CIA, where your friend Ron Pandolfi worked. We later learned Mr. Straub’s colleague on the committee, Chris Mellon, was in contact with handlers for U.K. precognitive psychic Chris Robinson. Now that former NSA official Tom Drake has gone on the record about U.S. intelligence receiving psychic warnings of 9/11 prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, your statement about a phenomenology problem appears to fit a pattern of government officials involved with the paranormal.
What more can you tell us about the SSCI and phenomenology?
Dan Throop Smith: I can tell you nothing further about the SSCI, other than this … In my third and final meeting with Chris, to which Ron invited himself, insisting that it be in the cafeteria, so as to be informal, Ron spent most of the time telling Chris about his tiger initiative, in which I was minimally involved. This had only to do with Siberian tigers, and nothing to do with the [Defense Intelligence Agency technology early warning] Tiger committee.
As we got up to leave our table, I told Chris that I was disappointed that there had been no opportunity to discuss eschatology, which had been the subject on our two previous, private meetings. Chris turned to me and said, well, Dan, I guess you’ll just have to surprise us.
I only had one further conversation with Chris, on the telephone. This was on the same day that I attempted to turn Ron into the FBI for seeming to have had prior knowledge of 9/11.
[Editor’s note: According to former NSA official Tom Drake, the U.S. Intelligence Community did indeed have advanced warning of the 9/11 attacks, and some intelligence from unusual sources — including psychic intelligence — was shared with the U.S. Intelligence Community. See our story about Tom Drake’s 9/11 statement on Coast to Coast AM for more information.]
Question: What is eschatology and why and how have you integrated it into your world view?
Note for the reader: A dictionary definition of eschatology might be “any system of doctrines concerning last, or final, matters, as death, the Judgment, the future state, etc.”
Dan Throop Smith: Yes, I imagine that [the end of the world] would constitute a challenge for the Intelligence Community, if not the Director of Central Intelligence, in particular.
A best possible world, virtually by definition, cannot be infinite, in either time or space.
[Editor’s note: Thus the connection to eschatology, since all good things (including worlds) must come to an end. “The claim that the actual world is the best of all possible worlds is the central argument in Leibniz’s theodicy, or his attempt to solve the problem of evil.”]
Given that there is a creative cosmic intelligence, which is the most economical way to explain the human mind and the apparent design of the world [in contrast to the current scientific paradigm] then the next question concerns the optimum size and duration of a world containing sapient beings.
Suffice it to say that it would have a duration that is considerably less than the apparent duration of the visible universe. So what’s going on with the universe?
I am simply suggesting that the best possible created world would not appear to be created.
It would appear to be as natural as possible. That is a fundamental design principle for a BPW … the Creator should cover her tracks, should not leave fingerprints, except possibly on our souls.
Here is my next point: Creation necessarily includes its own space-time manifold. Albert Einstein, with his General Theory of Relativity, demonstrated how this might be possible, even within a purely physical context. Cosmologists now suppose that space and time came into existence with the Big Bang. Where would that leave our would-be Creator? Beyond space and time?
