ECCO: Earth Coincidence Control Office

Excerpt from "The Dyadic Cyclone" by John C. Lilly M.D.
Don't really like the language used here myself, but if you can get over it, it sure is fascinating. I offer this as catma probable, not dogma absolute. Check out the comments for some re-shaping of it.

"In ones life there can be peculiarly appropriate chains of related events that lead to consequences that are strongly desired. After such experiences, one wonders how such a series of events developed; sometimes there is a strong feeling that some intelligence (greater than ours) directed the course along certain lines which It/He/She was/is programming. Several years ago, I enunciated a format for such concatenations of events, somewhat."

"There exists a Cosmic Control Center (C.C.C.) with a Galactic substation called Galactic Coincidence Control (G.C.C.). Within which is the Solar System Control Unit (S.S.C.U.), within which is the Earth Coincidence Control Office (E.C.C.O.). The assignments of responsiblities from the top to the bottom of this system of control is by a set of regulations, which translated by E.C.C.O. for humans is somewhat as follows:"

To all humans. If you wish to control coincidences in your own life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:

1) You must know/assume/simulate our existence in ECCO [Being aware of the mere concept of Synchronicity, meaningful coincidence will get you started.]

2) You must be willing to accept our responsibility for control of your coincidences.

3) You must exert your best capabilities for your survival programs and your own development as an advancing/advanced member of ECCO's earthside corps of controlled coincidence workers. You are expected to use your best intelligence in this service.

4) You are expected to expect the unexpected every minute, every hour of every day and of every night.

5) You must be able to maintain conscious/thinking/reasoning no matter what events we arrange to happen to you. Some of these events will seem cataclysmic/catastrophic/overwhelming: remember stay aware, no matter what happens/apparently happens to you.

6) You are in our training program for life: there is no escape from it. We (not you) control the long-term coincidences; you (not we) control the shorter-term coincidences by your own efforts.

7) Your major mission on earth is to discover/create that which we do to control the long-term coincidence patterns: you are being trained on Earth to do this job.

8) When your mission on planet Earth is completed, you will no longer be required to remain/return there.

9) Remember the motto passed to us (from GCC via SSCU): "Cosmic Love is absolutelely Ruthless and Highly Indifferent: it teaches its lessons whether you like/dislike them or not."

Thanks to Càm

Indeed getting over the 'language' is the first step..the 'tother is getting over that 'we' are not in control of our lives, grrrr...where is free will in all of this?

Anyways, nice of you to present this here as opposition to what I am attempting to accomplish myself on this material plane or is it Aethyr?

Peace dude!

Hey Michael,

Your reaction is totally understandable, the language really irked me too, and some of the messages too. Let me toss a reality tunnel view out there that nobody has to agree with (I stress the flexibility of each aspect of this view):

I think the language is so poorly chosen in this, I really did need the disclaimer, and I'd never post this without it. I could probably clean it up A LOT and make it sound a lot more appealing and less restrictive - or is just strict? Because a lot rings true under that admittedly poor phrasing. Though it can also be said we have to learn to get over certain language (if we can understand what's beneath it), and that "the path" is not self-created, it throws things at you you never expected.

For instance, we are in control to some extent over our synchronicities, but I also realize that there is another level at work here, where I am seemingly just a receiver, instead of creator. So both.

Free will - which is a "human concept" (;p) one has to have read a crapload of philosophy for to understand well, and this is not be underestimated: Free will, Determinism vs Indeterminism, Compatibalism vs Incompatibalism - a wiki page does get one started but is so, so not enough to grasp this - so a part of free will in this reality would be in accepting the synchronicities (=?) lessons, or rejecting them, which may be the same as giving a signal: "I'm not ready (for this)". I can notice for instance that sometimes I really am straying "off my (not the) path" when dealing badly with said lessons, like, getting pissed off and saying "screw my path!"

This is one way of facing the beast perhaps? ("What is not made conscious innerly appears outside", paraphrasing Jung)

But we do have free will in this view, we can reject the curriculum like we drop out of a school and then, well, from my experience we descend into mundanity again. We can also adjust the curriculum somehow by giving strong signals. (see point 7, again, could have been better formulated)

This is what the spiritual concept of "surrender" is about, not to be confused with the negative connotation. It means as much as "stop bitching" and learn, evolve and transcend the ego as much as you can hehe ;p

Another way to look at this, is the kundalini article by Carl Jung, where he says that conscious evolution is an impersonal process.

This could be what dropping the "ego" is all about and many refuse. This could be letting go of first 4 circuit preferences and many refuse. High indifference is another way of putting it.

Also, John Lilly was an explorer of many altered states of consciousness and one also needs to have read a few of his books to get his language here which is obviously more suitable for someone who went as deep as him, (I do but can hardly reprint the entire book ;p and have to state how clearly I understand the reality tunnel that hasn't gone as far with altered states probably see this language)

"Either way" hehe, "go your own way", that's what I'm doing. How we interpret that is also our own way. But I don't think this is in (direct) opposition with anyone's perceived purpose if you can hack the language.

Hope this helped in someway to clarify

Thanks man,

That did make a hell of a lot more sense, I guess I tend to go with initial gut reaction, but I DO tend to play around with ideas that either bother me or move me for days sometimes weeks, that pull me in a new direction too.

This is why I consult your website on b.s. issues, it has so many thought provoking methods of getting my energy flowing!

Thanks for the extensive comment bro and taking the time to do it.
