Comet Elenin was discovered in December of 2010 by a Russian amateur astronomer by the name of Leonid Elenin, or so the story goes. The comet caused quite a stir in the summer of 2011 in the alternative media with many people claiming it will cause massive havoc on Earth. Floods, earthquakes, death, all the usual. The name Elenin contained the letters ELE, which supposedly stands for Extinction Level Event. Yet the main stream media hardly even acknowledged the existence of Elenin.
I became quite fascinated by Elenin as well. At first I was concerned by the doomspeak, however after a while I realized it was the usual hype, i.e. fake. Still, even if the apocalypse that Elenin was supposed to be bringing was fake, does not mean the same goes for Elenin itself. I greatly anticipated Elenin’s arrival in the autumn of 2011, and then it just suddenly disappeared. Supposedly torn apart by gravity or something. Also suddenly all of the gossip on Elenin died, faster than it had appeared. The same goes for most predictions of “something happening”, be it Obama making an announcement on the existence of ETs, Rapture happening or Ashtar Command landing. People who believe in it are hyped up, wanting to believe it, but when the day comes they have to face the truth it was all bullshit to begin with, and they choose to forget.
However, I don’t think Elenin was the same. Richard C. Hoagland was also quite interested in Elenin. At one point he said it was shaped like 3D tetrahedron, or D4, as we roleplayers call ’em.
Hoagland said also that Elenin was positive message from something. He made references to Arthur C. Clarke’s novel Rendeavouz with Rama. However I remember Hoagland saying during the summer of 2010 that he’s pretty sure the existence of ETs is going to be announced publicly by the end of that year. He was pretty sure about that, but we’re still waiting. He also said that comet 2005 YU55 will hit the moon in 2011, which didn’t happen either as far as I know. Yu55 was another comet at the time, a “friend” of Elenin.
Hoagland has said a lot of things that aren’t true. Yet I don’t think he’s disinfo or anything. I think he has done a lot of good research, and brought out useful information, but he’s sometimes like an excited school boy with an overactive imagination, saying things that seem true in his mind, but that’s as far as it goes. But enough with Hoagland.
Along with Elenin there were other comets with it, Honda and Levy. They might have been significant also. Elenin created all kinds of conjecture and pure lies. One story I remember is that a bunch of survivalists were going to build a base in the Ozark mountains in the US, since that’s one of the safe places after Elenin has wrought it’s destruction. I think they even used the name of a professor to try make their claims seem relevant, and the professor had addressed the issue that he has nothing to do with the whole affair. So this wasn’t simply delusional “conspiracy theorists” having fantasies, but there was actual lying and duplicity at work.
One question frequently asked many of us, no doubt, was is Elenin the Blue Star Kachina of Hopi prophecy? It would seem no, but not necessarily. Beneath all the chatter that was created around Elenin, I think there was something. There was definitely a psy-op around Elenin, but I wouldn’t necessarily say Elenin itself was a psy-op. I’m leaning toward it being something. What exactly, I cannot say. A message from ETs, a harbinger of cosmic transcendence, an abandoned ancient alien vessel, emergence of something from the beyond into our reality or something completely different. I simply don’t know. The way how Elenin suddenly disappeared along with the alternative media coverage of it was quite intriguing. I’d say there was a cover-up of some sort. Perhaps Elenin did something, and it was covered up, or Elenin was going to do something, but it was destroyed or taken away. I don’t know, but still after all this time (not so long ago actually) I’ve felt there was an untold mystery connected with Elenin.
Talking about Elenin back then was quite arduous at times too. A lot of people who understood that much of the negative hype around Elenin was bogus over-simplified the affair to Elenin being bogus as well. It wasn’t easy to express yourself that even though you think the doom and gloom around Elenin is false, you think there is something worth finding out about Elenin. But a lot of people just started attacking you simply for asking questions. The old dualistic bullshit “if you don’t like the blue team you must be supporting the red team, which means I have to kick your ass”.
Fortunately someone else remembers Elenin, and thinks of it as something else than just another false prophecy of doom. The girl who made this video is such a person: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0hDiCbjRucU
