Earth Coincidence Control Office (ECCO)

From Kook Science

The Earth Coincidence Control Office (ECCO) is, according to John C. Lilly, a governing body devoted to managing of coincidence in the lives of beings on Earth, described as "one of God's field offices,"[1] and further broken down as a sub-unit of the Solar System Control Unit (SSCU), itself under the Galactic Coincidence Control (GCC), all ultimately under the jurisdiction of the Cosmic Coincidence Control Center (CCCC).

E.C.C.O. Regulations

  • As published in: Lilly, John C.; Lilly, Antonietta (1976), "Coincidence Control Develops the Dyad", The Dyadic Cyclone, New York: Simon & Schuster, p. 26-27 

If you wish to control coincidences in your own life on the planet Earth, we will cooperate and determine those coincidences for you under the following conditions:

  1. You must know/assume/simulate our existence in ECCO
  2. You must be willing to accept our responsibility for control of your coincidences.
  3. You must exert your best capabilities for your survival programs and your own development as an advancing/advanced member of ECCO's earthside corps of controlled coincidence workers. You are expected to use your best intelligence in this service
  4. You are expected to expect the unexpected every minute, every hour of every day and of every night.
  5. You must be able to maintain conscious/thinking/ reasoning no matter what events we arrange to happen to you. Some of these events will seem cataclysmic/catastrophic/overwhelming: remember stay aware, no matter what happens/apparently happens to you.
  6. You are in our training program for life: there is no escape from it. We (not you) control the long-term coincidences; you (not we) control the shorter-term coincidences by your own efforts.
  7. Your major mission on earth is to discover/create that which we do to control the long-term coincidence patterns: you are being trained on Earth to do this job.
  8. When your mission on planet Earth is completed, you will no longer be required to remain/return there.
  9. Remember the motto passed to us (from GCC via SSCU): "Cosmic Love is absolutely Ruthless and Highly Indifferent: it teaches its lessons whether you like/dislike them or not."

Of Interest

  • Lilly's dolphin work served as an inspiration for the video game Ecco the Dolphin (and subsequent sequels), a series which involves a bottlenose dolphin (Ecco) battling hostile extraterrestrials. The creator of the game has reported that the name Ecco is not derivative of ECCO, being purely coincidence, as you might expect.
