I have a belief that things I write about, even if the source is not currently present, will return and float, and what we experienced through C, was experienced, remembered and will be experience by other people, otherwise, I would not continue to write. For what I write and which is not understood now, so I believe, will be understood in the future, because it is in the the orbit of the earth, the orbit of future human history, even if the earth does not know it now. My opinion, from the things I learned from C and also from what "the stolen" Stoli told after he returned from the first and last travel with him, is that we are surrounded by a sea of knowledge carried by another intelligence, or another intelligences, and it is our destiny one day to dive into it whether we like it or not. Therefore, as C used to say, it is better for us to dive into it with our eyes open. Zvi, for example, thinks otherwise.
Last Passover he was in the country, after many years of not coming, since his mother passed away and the legal matters related to inheritance were settled, as far as I know. With his sister he no longer speaks long before, only with the nephew he has contact. I have never been able to understand the complicated relationship in his family but that is not my business. Since then, he has also had problems with his American ex-wife, about he tells me a little. He knows that in alternative history I wished him something better.
We met on the eve of the second holiday, and sat in the same cafe at the entrance of the market, which is also a spice shop, we sat in it the last time he was in the country, C was also still here then, and he joined us. That meeting was a little before Pesach, and two months later C has left. And like at that meeting 14 years ago, from there we made a short walk to the place that was then C's house, and then Zvi surprised me when he asked that from there we will make a restore walk of the trajectory of that last day, untill the point which C and Stoli disappeared from me and I no longer saw C.
"Hey, you do not have to go so fast" Zvi told me when we started to do the way that most of it was a going down, "I am not so young anymore"
"You asked me to restor, so that's how I went then, fast, but it was not fast enough, it turns out."
"I meant we're restoring the route, not your walking pace"
"Have you not learned yet that with C it is impossible to separate things?"
"Oh, stop being like the stolen Stoli"
We got to the garden where I was waiting for them that day to come from C's house, and I told Zvi how, when they came, they went so fast that in the end I lost them, it's if he thought before, that I was going fast. Then suddenly he asked me "So what, do you think, happened to C in the end?", And in response I summed up things that Shefa said, that others in the groups who tried to continue later said, the common side to the all explanations and also to what I thought, is that C chose to disappear and never return to Earth. "And what if it's different?" Zvi asked me. “Are you sure there is no other option? "
"Like what?" I was wondering.
"That the Galactic Federation has ‘rewarded’ him, maybe even the blue himself"
"Rewarded him? What kind of reward? For what?"
"For revealing us the secrets we were not supposed to know." said Zvi as saing the obvious.
Zvi told me that he thought about it a lot ("Do not think I have not thought of you, friends, all these years" he said, and something I had not seen for years reappeared for a moment), and came to the conclusion that a situation in which alien knowledge like we received would be received among ordinary humans, can only happen as a result of historical mistake, a one-time accident – in terms of the history of that side, the alien side. This is what happened in 1977, and we happened to be there and rarely enjoyed the fruits of the rare mistake, which was that C, the man of Earth was given alien knowledge and was allowed to return to Earth with that knowledge.
"Note that we all relied on the impression C made, and I always felt that he enjoyed it, that the Blue allowed him to come here and organize us, and we did not bother to think to ask him, even if it is so, if the Blue allowed him at all to tell us where he came from, and so all What he told us"
"And how would he organize us in a different way?" In the meantime we continued on the strange route where C then led us through the Rehavia neighborhood.
"I do not know how, but C himself told us that on Earth there are many string pullers, who do not tell where they came from and what their motive is. They appear, if they appear, as ordinary human beings. C could tell us a different story, at least until the blue came to power. So, at least as I see things, he was supposed to do and did not, and as I got to know the blue from C stories, and as I see the things in general, as they are conducted in those worlds, which might not have been different with us, if we knew what they know, the Blue did not in any way mean that C would be different, and would tell us the full truth."
"If so, then, C's decision to tell us things we are not qualified to know, that was the rare historical mistake."
"Yes," said Zvi, "and C, for them, violated their trust, and had to punished in some way, from the moment they knew what he did, and perhaps therefore he traveled or was forced to travel. He was always under their rules, and only their rules."
I was silent. Zvi's words illuminated everything in a new light, full of unpleasant consequences. Even a little scary, for us. And for C, and what he had to go through, if Zvi's analysis is correct, I did not even want to imagine it.
"When do you think they discovered it?"
"I Do not know, I believe that at an early stage. C kept trying to postpone the end and stay with us, in the end he had no choice. That's why he was afraid all the time, that was the real reason".
"And why has he kept telling us all these years, and more and more people?"
"I do not know, really. Maybe he went for 'if already-then already.' The end, will come anyway."
"And maybe he wanted revenge on them for something, for example that the blue actually threw him out of the spaceship"
"Maybe, but really, I Don't think we will ever know”.
"So such a mistake will not happen again, to them and to us, in the near future" I said.
"No" he said "they probably won't let that happen"
"And there will be no more C, who will reveal new secrets to us," I said
"will not be"..
We continued walking, quietly, until we reached the last endpoint on the route, where I still saw then "the stolen" Stoli and C, before disappearing completely.
"But there is a possibility," I said, "that what C told us is also not the true story, the full truth."
