Fascinating Reading from Outer Space

posted by on November 8 at 11:31 AM


Hello citizens of the Slogosphere: I’m out sick today (cough cough, hack hack, whine whine) and won’t be doing much slogging. But I had to share this link sent to me by one Robert Urbanek, a California-based writer and “spiritual detective” who uses “dreams, symbols and synchronicity [to] reveal the secrets of the cosmos and the destiny of myself and humanity.”

I was drawn into Urbanek’s website by its title——and Ms. Harding’s previous life as a presidential assassin indeed gets expansive coverage:

Tonya Harding assassinated John F. Kennedy in her previous life as Lee Harvey Oswald. Both Oswald and his victim, President Kennedy, have returned in this life as figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. Consider the evidence of reincarnation. Both Tonya Harding and Lee Harvey Oswald have the letters “Har” in their names. Both of their victims were Irish Catholics from Massachusetts whose last names began with the letters “Ke”: John F. Kennedy and Nancy Kerrigan, and both were attacked in cities beginning with the letter “D”: Dallas and Detroit.

Tonya Harding is just the tip of the iceberg. The intersection of politics, dreams, and Hollywood is another major motif. Here’s Urbanek on 9/11:

To understand why al-Qaeda appeared, at least subconsciously, to follow the script of the movie Independence Day, we need to understand the symbolism of both the movie and the phenomenon of alien abductions….[E]vidence points to one conclusion. The “aliens” are the spirits of aborted fetuses who have come back to “haunt” us. They are forcing people to share the humiliating and painful experience of being aborted.

Urbanek also often dreams about TV characters, and seems to have an unfortunate crush on Hitler. Sometimes these themes intermingle:

In Episode 73 of Seinfeld, aired November 18, 1993, Jerry recalls a sickening synchronicity.

Jerry: I haven’t vomited in thirteen years.
Elaine: Get out!
Jerry: Not since June 29, 1980.
Elaine: You remember the date?
Jerry: Yes, because my previous vomit was also on June 29 … 1972.

My birthday falls on June 29. Perhaps this episode was an omen that I would write material, like my Hitler article, that would make Jews want to throw up.

"Writer" and "spiritual detective"???
You are giving him way too much credit.
I was born on June 29th too but have no inclination to start believing I have some crazed insight into how the universe works based upon "Seinfeld" episodes.
But then I am a Brit so I guess I should stick to Tea leaves in the bottom of a cup. That is far more scientific isn't it.
Don't you love New Age based thinking.
What a flake.

Ask him who the hooker for Jesus was in her previous life...

Tonya Harding? Why....yes, yes, it DOES make sense.

Does he have anything on the assassination of John Lennon by famous author Stephen King? That's the one that's really not getting the attention it deserves.

Why is it reincarnated people were never just "ordinary joes or janes" in their past lives? I mean, if several hundred people claim to have been Cleopatra or Napoleon, they can't ALL be right, now can they?

And I cannot WAIT to see his "evidence" that "aliens are the spirits of aborted fetuses come back to haunt us". Seriously, Planned Parenthood had better just throw in the towel right now.

I'm sorry you're sick. I'm sick too. It sucks. Hugs.
