operation  contrasting valkyrie   
     in the sixties.  the  central    
  intelligence  agency "cia" release  
   aerosolized  selatenine  over  a   
  jupiter equinox concert,  creating  
  the  largest secret paradigm shift  
  that  the  world has ever  seen.  
 the jupiter equinox* concert  is part of 
 a festival in black tickle  arranged  by 
 a group called epicenter of love.  there 
 is   no  entrance   but   visitors   are 
 expected to help with  maintenance. food 
 and  drink  is  shared.  many bands  are 
 playing  over the four day course of the 
 festival, and  the stage is open between 
 scheduled   concerts.   jupiter equinox, 
 while an unknown act, has a  prestigious 
 timeslot at eight in  the evening on the 
 third  day,  which  is  friday.       
 eight is  also when the  plane  used  to 
 spread  the   aerosol  lifts   off.   it 
 arrives at the  festival about a quarter 
 past,  sound  masked  by  the   concert. 
 around   when   the   first    wave   of 
 selatenine   must   have   reached   the 
 audience, the song comes to a tense  but 
 quiet  movement,  and  the  lead  singer 
 walks   to  the  front   of  the  stage. 
 she says, with a  crystalline voice:  "i 
 have  something to tell you. i am  not a 
 human  being.  i am not an  animal  or a 
 plant.  i  have  been sent to deliver  a 
 message to you. a message  of  hope. you 
 are  not alone.  there  are other beings 
 in  the  universe.  there  is  life  out 
 there,  life  that  is  reaching  out  a 
 hand. and it's time to  take that  hand. 
 to reach out toward  that hand  and grab 
 it it. it is time to come home.  you are 
 going   home.  you   are  going   home." 
 the  singer  stands  there   for  a  few 
 moments,  her  hand  raised in  the air, 
 before the  rest  of the band  kicks  in 
 and  the  music builds to  a  crescendo. 
 the  crowd  erupts.  and then  something 
 else  erupts  as  well.  a  concert-goer 
 describes   it:   "suddenly,  the  music 
 seams  broader,  more  colorful.  i  can 
 somehow  see it, and i  feel  the others 
 seeing it, and  i  see it through  their 
 eyes  as well.  meanwhile  i'm  dancing, 
 and  i  can feel  my body as i've  never 
 done before, i  am aware  of  each  cell 
 and  each  molecule,  all  vibrating  in 
 unison.  and  it's  all   going  faster, 
 building  up  to  something, waking up." 
 people start  forming  circles,  holding 
 hands  and  dancing.  some  are  crying. 
 some are  laughing.  some are screaming. 
 and  then - a  flutter  -  and something 
 gives.    a   shockwave   of   reversing 
 polarity   in  the   ether,   and   like 
 butterflies getting hit  by  a  burst of 
 wind, the third eye opens  for  everyone 
 in the audience. and  it becomes a chain 
 reaction,  quickly  spreading across the 
 festival area.  within seconds  there is 
 a   global  blackout.   festival   goers 
 regain  their  memories  around  a  week 
 later,  those  in  the  nearby  town  of 
 black tickle  after   a  few   days,  in 
 montreal for the  evening,  the  rest of 
 america  maybe  an  hour.           
 and  thus,  the  population   of   earth 
 has  kind  of  left  it's  materialistic 
 baseline,   only  that   most   do   not 
 remember                             it. 
  * there's an interesting aspect to  
   the  "jupiter equinox"  act.  it   
    seems  there   was   never  any   
  jupiter equinox concerts before or  
  after the one in black tickle. the  
   lead  singer (also  colloquially   
  referred to as  jupiter) seemed to  
  immediately disappear (for  a long  
  while she was thought to have been  
   a cia  agent,  but  a later foia   
  release refuted this). for obvious  
  reasons, many were looking for any  
   trace  of  the  band,  but  none   
   were fruitful.                     
  recently,  however, some attention  
  has been drawn to juniper helding,  
  a sixteen year old pop singer from  
  england who has  a very  striking
