... This solar system has a planet which is broken up, the asteroid belt. It gives a low-gravity platform for takeoff and so on, and that broken planet is of considerable interest as a space station, that is to say a galactic jump.
Now, there aren't any planets up at this end of the galaxy which form a good galactic entering spot for incoming transport and other ships. But this beautiful, broken-up planet here with a light-gravity sun and so on, makes a very ideal spot. And as a result, this area of the solar system got into prominence. It got into a little bit of prominence, and it's slightly a bone of contention. And there was - the Fourth Invader Force was here.
The Fifth Invader Force came in to use this area, and the name of this solar system is Space Station 33.
They started to use this area without suspecting that the Fourth Invader Force had been there for God knows how many skillion years, had been sitting down, and they have their installations up on Mars, and they have a tremendous, screened operation.
The Martian operation is a fascinating operation, simply because it has gone into 100 percent holding force. And it does everything it does with tremendous coversion. It's sitting behind a defense screen of enormous size, and nobody - it's practically impossible to penetrate that, except as a thetan. And if you penetrate it as a thetan, you go through the Martian screen, and they got you!
Well, now, the point is that the Fifth Invader Force operated for some little time here in this system without suspecting the existence of the Fourth Invader Force. And all of a sudden they started to lose crews, and they didn't know where they were going. And they got a little more upset about it and a little more upset about it and a little more upset about it. And a battalion was sent down here to Earth 8,200 years ago, the Third Battalion.
If you find somebody who is a member of the Third Battalion, why, speak up. Because the whole battalion, its officers, staff and so forth, was under the command of the expeditionary force commanding officer for this - not for just this area.
All right. Now, this sounds awfully wild. It just sounds terrifically incredible, but that's just incredible in the frame of reference of Earth.
Actually, this isn't very incredible.
So 8,200 years ago, they came down in the Himalayas, the upper headlands, up about, oh, I'd say about seventy-two miles northwest of Khyber Pass, and put a base in there, and still not believing that there was anything like an invader force operating in this system, failed to take any vaguest precautions with regard to their installations. They put up no defenses; after all, what was here! Nothing but Homo Sapiens.
That was just nothing, no danger, no menace, and so on. And they were in this installation just a very short time when all of a sudden, with a terrific crash, the Fourth Invader Force, which was a little more active then than it has become since, knocked out this whole battalion (a battalion of that size is in the neighborhood of about three thousand beings) and picked up all of its staff, all of its staff officers and so forth, and took them through to Mars and then knocked them back into this human race here.
They're still here. There are saucer crews here; there's all sorts of things on Earth here from the Fifth Invader Force. Very interesting.
This is directly and violently in opposition to the Fourth Invader Force. And the Fifth Invader Force, out of its own protection, took over Venus - oh, relatively in modern times - took over Venus and tried to stabilize the Venusian.
If you called a Fifth Invader, though, a Venusian, he would probably shoot you out of hand, because it would be a horrible insult. They merely monitor the government of Venus, and they leave Mars strictly alone.
Now, this is really, roughly, a rundown of the quote "political" situation in the solar system.
Now, that's very interesting, because it gives you, as preclears, bodies in pawn of the Fourth Invader Force. It gives you tremendous volume of personnel that have been poured down here for various nefarious purposes, all of them under some kind of a covert direction.
Typical game: every goal they've gotten, they have a reason why they can't reach the goal, see! I mean, typical game sort of an implant these people are operating on. They're relatively inefficient. But boy, can they hold on to things.
Do they accumulate MEST and that sort of thing.
You've got your big holding operations. And you've got running through this a Fifth Invader Force operation which is strictly, really, disinterested in Earth - not really interested in Earth at all, as such, because Earth is a heavy gravity planet, and who the hell wants a heavy gravity planet!
Earth would be much better off lying in chunks in an orbit around the sun. But naturally, that's a pretty rough assignment, blowing up something this size and putting it around, so nobody would do that.
But completely aside from that fact, Earth has been used consistently as a prison; and it is a prison, and it is heavily screened. There are installations in Mongolia, there are installations in the Pyrenees here on Earth, and there are installations down in the Mountains ot the Moon in Africa which pick up, very often, people on death. And the thetan just doesn't know what's going on. He's in a state of deep hypnosis, really, and the moment he finds himself in association with a dead body, the thing keys and he reports to where he's supposed to go. And he's changed and moved around here and there and comes back down.
Really, from death back to assumption of a new body and so on, is ordinarily a time period of about fifteen minutes, and he has three engrams in those fifteen minutes: 1) The death, 2) The wipeout and implant between lives, and 3) The assumption - knocking out the GE and taking over a body at birth.
And if anybody was going to do anything to Earth on a violent side, or anybody was going to do anything to people on a violent side, it would be somebody like the Fifth Force. But the Fifth Force has completely opposite interest in Earth; it does not want to do anything to Earth.
If anything is protecting Earth at this time, it's the Fifth Force people. But isn't it strange that you will find the Fifth Force people occasionally have a body in pawn here! You'll find an occasional body in pawn from the Fifth Force. And when you do, when you do, it'll be a different proposition, because it's monitored by consent; the guy is here with a comm line set up. And he's almost in a state of knowingness concerning exactly where he came from and what he's doing. It's a different proposition entirely.
a thetan from the fifth invader force believes himself to be a very strange insect-like creature with unthinkably horrible hands. He believes himself to be occupying such a body, but is in actuality simply a unit capable of producing space, time, energy and matter.
