There is a term that the Casey Research folks have been using more and more lately (don’t know if they coined it or not), that I’m adopting myself. I can’t find a better term to describe it: they call it the “Dark State.” We know, at least by inference and deductive logic, who’s in and near the top of the Dark State, but by definition, we can’t see clearly inside it to really understand it. It’s like black holes. They’ve finally figured out a way to more accurately (they think) measure the mass of black holes, and it’s easy to observe what black holes can do to things outside the black holes, but exactly how they work and what’s inside or beyond them by definition cannot be known. No one’s ventured into one and re-emerged to tell about it. Such is the Dark State.
