The Martians live underground and have faster internet access than we do

(discussed on Twitter and in person with some of you)
After getting up horrifically early to go to see the Paralympic Equestrian session in the morning, we went to the vegan cafe run by followers of the Supreme Master Ching Hai. I think we have been to a couple more in various places round the world, certainly the one in Vienna, possibly the one in Vancouver? She believes in being vegan (or 'veg' as she tends to say), so her disciples have set up cafes round the world. The one in Camden had a video of 'Supreme Master TV' going. I have mentioned Supreme Master TV before - it used to be on Sky but isn't any more, apparently.
Anyway, she is considrably more hatstand than I realised. The video being shown was an interview (via video-conference) between her staff in California and her, in which she discussed telepathic messages between her and a Martian underground civilisation. Apparently Martians have TV, and radio and internet (with faster downloads than we have), and dogs (but not parrots). And can get her channel and like everything on it. The people moderating the interview in the video are much more in 'disciple' mode than I have seen in her other stuff.
As Mr Zengineer pointed out, there is something quite appealing about the way she doesn't seem to try very hard to pretend not to be making stuff up off the top of her head.
She is clearly in quite a happy place but I do not feel she is a member of the reality based community http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW2gDd-02-A
