I went to sleep early last night and I awoke before dawn. I saw the talking lights in the hills and I saw that someone in camp was sending back. I did not read the message but the resistance is in the hills and they are talking to someone in camp. Dangerous knowledge. But today all knowledge is dangerous. I could see the side of the light in the bungalow that sent back so I know the building he is in. should I say something they can overhear or should I just let them get caught? I think I will get up early again and see if they talk tonight. Knowledge is also power and that is why it is dangerous.
Tapping on walls in a prison to let others know you are alive and not alone goes back for centuries. Morse code as we know it today, has been used for prisoners in camps to talk for decades. Tapping on water pipes, walls, or doors transmitted sound down the corridors to send messages of hope and solidarity to other prisoners. Light has been used across the desert, from mountain top to mountain top, along coast lines to warn of danger for centuries.
Read the stories of the men held as POW’s in wars, the War Between the States to modern combat. Hanoi Hilton, Dachau, (not a POW camp but a prison); the Gulags of Soviet Russia, the Internment camps of America and the Americans of Japanese ancestry. How well could we survive today?
READ; Knowledge is POWER!
Just my thoughts for today.
