Consciousness Across Dimensions – Considerations of an Overactive Mind

Existing Dimensional Frameworks

We don’t really know, though I sense we can surmise that in the analysis of experiencer events, we can determine they occur across a plethora of worlds, a consideration of consciousness across dimensions, not necessarily all connected. It seems safe to say that the experiences are benign or benevolent, for the most part. FREE’s survey results would put those in the 1st standard deviation, 68% at least.

consciousness across dimensions - considerationsNeppe and Close, who have the most experiential relationship in their model based on my subjective experience, identify 9 dimensions where consciousness, time and space are tethered though it does not mention material planes, perhaps bringing in the first three. Smith’s material references a 12-dimensional framework with 4 sets of 3 field variants; electric, magnetic and tempic. How consciousness works is a mystery still.

I grok what Smith refers to in the ‘nothingness.’ I wonder if there is indeed an order of nature we haven’t fully understood as natural order in the universal consciousness emerging in us now. The Urantia Book calls it the Unqualified Absolute, I believe, and views might be different, though it’s definitely consistent with the Void. It’s possible there is a relationship to spin or understanding available when we discover more about the point of consciousness and its attending fields. This is the beginning of accessing consciousness across dimensions.

Misunderstandings

Our foible and folly is in seeking to qualify instead of understanding the nature of qualification. Smith alludes to it in referencing ‘spin’ and lines of force (electric, magnetic and tempic) affecting materialization. It makes sense in reference to the star-tetrahedron as well, considering a third vertical spin not referenced in most depictions. Perhaps this is a primer…

consciousness across dimensions Several years ago I witnessed three, what appeared to be, tubes of rainbow sparkled light flowing in one direction in perfect symmetry. I was mesmerized. As I watched the three one-directional flows became two-directional, then split into six with spins opposite yet not interfering with each other. The spin increased and eventually the sphere flattened out though a bubble still remained in the center, looking like the saucer-shaped craft. I’ve heard similar images called a Merkabah craft. It did precede an incredible journey that four of us shared.

Brining it back to earth and in body, I believe the corpus collasum to be a hidden gem we need to understand a little more, as  the relayer between spheres. I wonder if it goes deeper; that our capacity for greater consciousness and higher awareness is contingent upon understanding the membrane as a switchboard of sorts, and that when the right connections are made (usually by altering an existing neuropathway with a ‘change’ by choice), we garner access to a ‘higher,’ more sensitive, level of consciousness. Lipton’s work seems to edify this concept.

Consciousness Across Dimensions

How that applies spans the dimensional framework, as we are dealing with a number of styles and types of contact. Considering we’re built to learn, the introduction of this array of experience tends to indicate we’re in process of a greater awakening, consistent with the tales of transcendence. There’s still something I don’t think we’ve realized, yet. This is the revealing, the apocalypse we’ve been anticipating, imho. It’s all about a greater level of communication.

Consciousness across dimensionsWe don’t necessarily consider that people from elsewhere may or may not be able to communicate across their own dimensional divides, although by and large benign if not beneficent in nature across the gamut toward humans. The FREE surveys indicate this kind of relationship may exist based on the variety of experiencer reports, or so it seems to me considering the bell curve. I wonder if our physical forms give us the advantage of spanning the gamut of dimensional frameworks and that’s why so many lifeforms, across dimensions, are interested in our sustainability.

I wonder if the sequestrations have also affected the inner development, simply because it’s natural to ask deeper questions during times of travesty or personal trauma. This also has a ‘field’ effect on the thoughtmosphere and greater distribution of intelligent response, simply because the questions are being asked. Klauss Schwab, in his recent book COVID-19: The Great Reset, asks the question: Are we going to become more compassionate and kind as a result?

The Apocalypse – Unveiling

In order to evolve a consciousness across dimensions, empathy has to be considered a foundational pillar, right? It would seem to accompany and internally promote the switch from Profit over People to People and Planet over Profit as part of the Great Reset. It would seem to accompany the development of the individual and collective as a result of the various types of contact and the synergistic effect on human and planetary evolution toward a Type 1 Civilization.

The evolution of a Planetary Civilization with such capacity as to begin to understand the relationship of consciousness across dimensions is limitless in scope, though time is certainly a factor. However, according to Smith’s recounting, time is a measurement of the change in entropy. What if we understood natural law better and began applying that understanding strategically in our lives and world? What would increasing the rate of change in entropy do especially considering the notion of greater order?

Truth has no agenda. Service has no politics. Exopolitics need to include the scope of possible nuances and the possibility that all of these races we’re encountering may not have any relationship with each other, dimensionally, and be as unaware as we are of them until we have a moment of attention placed upon us by the attention of another, more aware, entity. Perhaps the CE-5 and similar protocols others may use will guide us toward greater understanding sooner than later.

These are some considerations of a bigger picture. Ought we ask bigger questions? What spills out sometimes takes me for a ride, too, so I hope at least some of the above connects.

What are your thoughts?

Bigger Questions w Ron James and Zen Benefiel

Time Dilation?

The timing of our efforts and expectation of results don’t necessarily coincide with the intentions and process of unfolding information. Gaps happen, right? Non-linear and non-local activity have to be taken into consideration now. Timelines aren’t our own. The interview at the end of this article was recorded in 2015 for Bigger Questions. I drove to LA with the excitement of sharing some long-suffering that offered a new world of experience on just about every level you can think, yet it wasn’t time yet.

Seems newcomers to the scene express their passion and purpose with some overblown self-importance that does more to obfuscate the truth and create diminished returns than they realize. Their obsessions cause miscommunication and responses from immaturity and insecurity rather than vulnerability and wisdom, resulting in projections of arrogance and self-righteous behavior that only reveals they are the creators of it. It isn’t their fault. They are young  in the field and inexperienced.

It’s a very small view in the eyes of a bigger questions and a bigger picture; feeling important. Pushing and pulling energy is not ‘the way.’ Personally and professionally I have a piece of advice I give to my clients and cohorts. Do something bigger than you are and share it. Be part of the big picture, not the community market. That’s what my ‘contacts’ are most disturbed by – lack of action, initiative and understanding of why it is necessary as a demonstration of an evolving consciousness.

Fallacious Realities

bigger questions

Masks in Nature? Really? Oh, it’s a smart virus… it will hunt you down. Scientific research shows masks are ineffective yet the narrative and actions appease our fears of each other????

2020 sure has been an interesting year with many bigger questions; most of them suppressed. Amidst the mud-slinging and name-calling we’ve also been witnesses to how marginalized a global society can be in the face of a fallacious reality narrative that has no other purpose than a global social experiment. Expertise and information, instinct and common sense have been thrown asunder with censorship and removals from the web.

Good and evil are certainly in the discussion of how a few have manipulated the many once again. If one takes the time for discovery and compares what is still available with the narrative being pushed on the world, it’s fallaciousness becomes clearly obvious and present. Don’t believe it can happen? Read The Lucifer Principle.

The question is how do our relationships with each other and our visitors engage practical and pragmatic results? If they don’t, then what good are they, really? Governments have known about them for decades, and there are plenty of cases with proof even before the classified videos were released recently. With how the public has responded to the fallacious narrative, do we think that things would be better if they suddenly showed up? NOT

2020 – A 2112 of Our Own Making

bigger questions

Dystopian Future?
We think not… music frees the soul. Ignition pending…

We’ve been in our caves for most of 2020, figuring out how to cope, how to navigate, how to survive the economic devastation, and how to come up with the bigger questions that matter. We seek to blame at length yet don’t bother to ask why it is happening in the first place. Is there a group so able to manufacture and control a world gone mad, or use it as an excuse to tighten things up with further personal rights removals?

By 2112, the world is controlled by the “Priests of the Temples of Syrinx”, who determine the content of all reading matter, songs, pictures – every facet of life. A man discovers a guitar and learns to play different music. When he goes to present this to the priests of the Temples, they destroy the guitar. Our instruments are our minds and bodies, and those who discover deeper connections are still seen as threats to society.

We have a choice, though, and we are irrevocably powerful in numbers. Those numbers have to be in agreement with at least simple tenets of progress into the next decade. We’ve got the knowledge, skill sets and talent to make sweeping changes in a very short amount of time – IF – we learn to work together toward a common good.

2021 – A New View with Possibilities and Bigger Questions

We know that compassion and understanding are key features of an evolving consciousness, even with limited experience. We’ve learned how to plagiarize, polarize and punitize our natural desires for community and trust. Our symbolic masks have become exposed and real. The narrative for 2020 has demonstrated just how marginalized and manipulatable a society can be. Let’s not judge them for that, please.

What we need is a compassionate understanding for the condition and perhaps a solution to raise the awareness naturally, without pummeling others with information to try to get them to understand or getting slapped up side of the head with a cosmic 2×4 for our own lack of awareness. How do we do that? Let’s start with the 6 Ps… Patience, Perseverance, Persistence, Passion, Purpose and, most of all, Practice.

The interview below has its own unique high-strangeness. It was lost for several years, never seeing the digital scene, or any other for that matter. Oddly enough, it was found recently though still incomplete in post-production. During the editing, their computer shut down except for my voice, while rendering the final cut. It had to be completely redone. Acknowledging the delay, for whatever reason, our conversation is timely and valuable for entering a new time in a not-so-normal way. Much appreciation to Ron and Skye for their work.

The practical stuff mentioned in the interview, like addressing social crisis, takes a lot of effort regardless of the emotional fortitude. It’s taken nearly four years for the ‘universe’ (and helpful others) to bring to bear the people to forge ahead with WeCanDoBetterArizona.org. I’m so excited and humbled that I get to be a part of it. It’s huge in the impact it will make on youth aging out of foster care in Arizona.

Galactic Federation – Confederation of Planets et al

In so many ways, I’m thankful for having both the ability and place to share where some fear to tread regarding the Galactic Federation. Many I know have had contact experiences since childhood, some of them able to describe precisely what happened while others are unable or unwilling, yet there are significant details that demonstrate the reality of being approached and/or engaged by beings from another world or worlds. Some seem very physical while others, not so much.

The spotlight has never really been on them, though, focusing instead on the nuts and bolts of artifacts or mass sightings and military video proof. Disclosure is a many-layered objective from government recognition of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena to the acknowledgement of the general public that contact experiences do happen and are real. Both beg the question: Why?

Recent headlines include an Israeli Space Security Chief who revealed the existence of a ‘Galactic Federation’ as well as inter-specie interactions that seem to confirm the stories of Emery Smith and Corey Good. Perhaps the latter is true, though there is little evidence of it as of yet. Truth is usually stranger than fiction and time will reveal all.

On the former though, regarding the Galactic Federation, there have been revelations and tales of their existence for nearly a century; by that and other names referring to an inter-galactic alliance of races. We’re still a very young, almost infantile, human race as we look across the span of time, where other races could be millions if not billions of years old and with technology so advance it all seems like magic and manipulation to us.

Galactic Federation Overview

I am reminded of the crop circle of Aug 2002 that warned about those bearing gifts and false promises. The reality, for me, is an ongoing engagement of some sort that sure has the hints of a Galactic Federation of sorts, though certainly much different that any militaristic view and especially as an announcement of such. It wreaks of obfuscation. Too many overtones of command and control, which is exactly opposite my experience.

Perhaps you feel the same; perhaps not. Early initiations and some research into the ‘phenomena’ brought forth a number of interesting events and messages beginning in the 1950s after the atomic bombs were unleashed. The introduction of the Ashtar Command was made, though given little attention even to today. (more info)

Call me whatever you want. Believe whatever you want. It’s my experience I cannot say I completely understand it, though all indications are it is more of a conscience management organization than anything else… promoting the will to do good. To be stewards, not masters, though mastery is required. It’s the mastery of self. That seems to be the overarching theme in the ‘results’ of long-term contact.

Message in a Bottle – Bottled Up Message

The kids from Mozambique are evidence and shared that message, as most children are incapable of misrepresenting their feelings and thoughts from such direct messages in their experiences. I know that sounds too simplistic, but is it really? We loose that childlike innocence as adults and seek complexity instead of simplicity, yet we know core principles in any environment are simple. They’re called value statements in business and professional development.

The intricacies of contact, our experiences of it, and the resulting increase in awareness and connectedness that changes our living awareness and even our experience of reality, seem to include a near-sacred vow of service toward humanity in some way. We all seem to have it.

I get the sense we all feel there is some kind of overall theme, but from where does it come? We speak of the timelessness of the soul, ageless wisdom and eternal existence paired with bloodlines and evolution toward some kind of resolve, perhaps a harmonic convergence. We hear a New World Order is coming, but what kind will it be? Isn’t it up to us?

There are elements of self-initiation and advanced communication across the spectrum of contact – non-linear, non-local and non-physical yet appearing so. How far does it extend in the realms of space/time and matter? Are individual races operating on their own or is there a concerted effort with each complementing the others somehow? Many have had multi-race/being encounters. Seems somebody has learned to get along, eh?

Is quantum or particle physics offering a way to comprehend the notion of activity on other dimensions simultaneously? Experiencer reports have indicated such. Neppe and Close go so far as to posit that consciousness, space and time are tethered across dimensions. Our reality just got much bigger, or at least the possibility of it stretches the mind in multiple directions. Perhaps it even suggests some answers regarding the nature of contact.

The Sinister Sound of the Galactic Federation?

Interesting how folks perceive. Not once have I ever imagined or perceived anything sinister about it, and let’s not forget the full ‘of Light’ that has been included. I suppose the same ‘organization’ is referred to by Confederation of Planets, Interstellar Confederacy et al. Who knows what they are really called.

All beings have choice in the universe, some limited, and proceed or rescind according to the quality of choices. The universe seems very much self-determining; developing civilizations rise or fall depending on their ability to coalesce and collaborate. On several occasions we’ve been warned about the experimentation with the atom and shown that ICBM missiles around the world are able to be shut off.

What we don’t know or realize is the devastation on the environment (space/time) on a quantum level when atomic bombs are detonated and/or photons are rammed into each other at near-light speed. We see the material world as hearty and near-indestructible, yet we have no clue of the subtle worlds that support [it] [material world].

Military and science leadership are arrogant, imho, and previously unstoppable in the development of weapons systems and devices that destroy matter in order to understand it, or so we are told. Perhaps the Federation knows this and actually is attempting to warn us of our ridiculous notions. Fear produces weapons. Love produces life. One destroys the other.

Restoring Order Among the Stars – Venus and Mars are alright tonight

TMC is also airing Proximity in late December 2020.

My wife and I were watching one of the latest mainstream movies on abduction and contact titled: Proximity. It’s theme: A young NASA JPL scientist is abducted by extraterrestrials but when no one believes his story he becomes obsessed with finding proof which leads him on a journey of discovery. (IMDb) It’s presentation includes hints of many real events and people, though obfuscated if you aren’t aware of them.

What it does offer is a trail of what has become consistent in the experiences of abductees turned contactees and then on to experiencers. It begins with against-the-will abductions, decades apart, and leaves the JPL guy to figure things out on his own. Meanwhile, he’s shared a video of at least part of his encounter that meets with fallacious accusations and denials.

Skipping to the end, we find that not only are the ‘aliens’ non-threatening, they actually do some incredible things for those whom they initially caused deep confusion and emotional trauma. I likened it to the event where Travis was struck by a static charge from the ship, abducted and probably brought back to life as the charge through him across he clearing and more than likely stopped his heart.

Great segue, the heart is the matter of all of this and the matter is truly about the heart. It isn’t the physical heart, though, it’s the center of what we consider loving, pure, uncompromising in faith and trust in something we believe to be supreme, or at least able to help with the challenges in life all the while maintaining a balance, perhaps even harmony, in the universe.

When we and our governments are in fear of anything that heart-centered activity is shut off, constricted at best and completely disconnected at worst… resulting in the destruction and devastation of human, animal and plant life. It’s a simple realization, though we tend to avoid admitting it at all cost.

Why? That’s a reason on each individual can answer and resolve. We need to encourage and inspire each other to do so. We’re headed for a rough ride. Let’s make it a little less bumpy. 2021 needs to be about restoration and forward progress, forgiveness and creative expression in our lives and from our contact experiences to lead the world to a new era.

Vast Active Living Intelligence System

Sci-Fi or Potential Reality

VALIS (Vast Active Living Intelligence System) was introduced by Philip K. Dick as a science fiction novel. VALIS was a satellite that was part of a network across the galaxy interacting with other intelligent life. It was literally a Vast Active Living Intelligence System designed to target and communicate with certain people. The interaction, much like contact experiences and ETI communications, caused an evolution of consciousness which threatened the status quo. Sounds familiar, huh?

Published in 1981, its affects can be seen throughout the consciousness movement and ufology as well. Dick was known for Blade Runner, Total Recall and The Minority Report among others. His insight and inspiration, much like The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick, provides things all to close to the theme today; aspiring experiencers desiring to learn how to work as one. It makes one wonder just how connected Dick was, so parallel to what many are experiencing as real.

Perhaps the Black Knight might have been his inspiration as well. What is absolutely true is this vast active living intelligence system is a reality within humans and other species. It is another description of the ‘cosmic’ consciousness paradoxically self-directed yet so intricately symbiotic with people, planet and posterity. As we increase the knowledge base, internal and external, the capacity for cognition and collaboration in concert rises.

Vast Active Living Intelligence System of Earth

What ever the communication device, religion or revelation, the consistency across fields of study could be leading us toward an increased capacity for planetary management, too. Why does that make a difference or should we care? What does that have to do with UFOs or their inhabitants; visitors from afar with confusing methods of communication toward humans? They don’t appear to communicate in ways we are accustomed, yet there are volumes of material, direct experiences, where messages are shared an no regression necessary to retrieve.

The excitement over the recent disclosure and discovery being shared with the general public seems anti-climatic, though. It’s a new news cycle for many that haven’t been following the fray and are aware of the dichotomy of experiencer vs researcher in the Ufology community. In the Tao of Ufology, if there were one, the two have distinct yet equal value in moving us all forward. The challenge comes in sifting through the onslaught of information and finding consistent value, something that leads us toward making our own world better and receptive to future engagement of Extraterrestrials in whatever style we can collectively perceive.

Individuals and entities, organizations and others, are often obfuscated by the marauders in the media and within the fray, perhaps well-intentioned at times yet certainly adding to the frustration within the Ufology community and beyond. The added complexity of current environmental and political world affairs not only increases the importance of communication, it requires us to rethink our methodology and purpose for it. We know ‘they’ (various races in yet undetermined alliances and numbers) are indeed here and actively engaging many.

Human Intelligence Systems

The types and styles of engagement vary as well, leaving a certain nebulous notion that we are somehow vulnerable to outside influences or unintended engagement; victims of circumstance. Attempts are being made to access, organize and sift through similarities of experiencers that hopefully will offer some consistent experiences, themes and/or vulnerabilities within our individual and collective belief systems. The information age is leading us toward practical and pragmatic concerns beyond religious or superstitious separative tendencies.

What are we really looking for in our quest? What do we want to understand? The list is large and all-consuming to many explorers, researchers and those deemed ‘experts’ in the field. The amount of activity and interest is growing, but who or what leads the way? The ‘field’ is certainly not unified as major divisions seem to be present between materialists and contact activists. Admittedly, the challenge of bridging that divide seems endless with science and speculation vying for attention.

Let’s step in the way-back machine for just a moment, shall we? What did we have or know early on that has been lost or ignored, rejected or unimportant in view of today’s technology? Below is some old footage of George Adamski’s from the early 1960s. Obviously in poor shape, it still offers evidence of how craft movements defy known physics then. The craft looks very similar to Billy Meier’s photos and video. Disclosure and discrediting seem inextricably linked.

Future Foundations for ETI Interaction

Fast forward to today, some 60 years later, and the expansion of the parameters of ufology to now include matters of consciousness, not just craft or physical evidence. Certainly, those behind the scenes and beyond public purview have information, volumes of it no doubt. Just what that information is may or may not be as detailed or expansive as many believe. It is conceivable that experiencers might have more information pertinent to the future of the field or even add to the information already gathered, if we only knew what it is.

The Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE’s near-original name) began public surveys of ‘contactees’ or ‘experiencers’ as they are now being called. It’s hard to say just how valid the information will be determined to be, yet thousands have taken the surveys. The results are contained in the book Beyond UFOs, along with several papers written by Board Members. FREE’s co-founder, Rey Hernandez, has embarked on a next-level exploration of non-human intelligence with noted PhDs and others in the field of consciousness.

In the face of advancing interest and organizations vying for attention and money for research, it might be prudent to consider how we choose to view appropriate development. How humanity is served is as important as any technological advancements. Arguments over this or that evidence seems counterproductive to the larger picture of engagement and the future of Earth and humanity.

The Road Less Traveled

So far, for whatever reason, the level of engagement has been cursory at best when it comes to interaction with non-human races. We really don’t know where they are from or when, according to the lack of evidence and information to date, let alone who and why. Their choice, not ours. Why? How can we adjust? What do we need to do to prepare the way for open communication at least? These seem to be more important questions. How would a vast active living intelligence system answer them? How might we discern?

The safety and security of Earth is surely a concern, just as each nation has security issues with foreigners from other nations or worlds. A good look at the past might indicate what we can expect in the future. Beyond the anomalous stories of malevolent intent, there are no obvious signs of danger from other worlds. Suspicions are like superstitions that knowledge and wisdom eliminate over time. It is nearly impossible for a race that is suspicious toward one another to pause for unknown, apparently benign or beneficent, races to emerge safely.

Considering the nature of most contact experiences being telepathic, listening to more than an individual is not beyond the scope of possibility. What would our collective ‘thoughtmosphere’ offer to a race or races of highly advanced beings? After so many re-runs, somebody needs to turn off the TV. Our collective image via our own transmissions of radio, TV and thought is less than hospitable at present. We’re obsessed with violence throughout our passive entertainment choices, whether sports, movies, television shows or video games.

The scope of available opportunities for communication seems endless when we consider the non-linear and non-local nature of such, not to mention telepathic, yet the percentile of folks that can even think about or are engaged by off-planet races is minuscule at best. Common sense would offer that such folk would become objects of scrutiny with a loss of freedom to boot. That would be an inappropriate response, yet still too real at this time. Where will it go?

Perhaps there is a Giver of Data, like VALIS, or some other prevailing consciousness that is always ON and delivering messages as recipients become available. There is a growing number of ufologists that are exploring how frequency comes into play with ‘downloads’ or other kinds of communication. We don’t really have the material technology to determine that at present. However, the notion of frequency and/or frequency response does warrant consideration.

It’s conceivable that our rise to the level of a Type I civilization on the Kardashev scale would include certain advances in both brain and consciousness integration as well as material sciences and technology. Dr. Kaku seems to agree with those notions and more. The similarities between code-driven virtual environments, brain-mind capability and binary systems is incredible and the impetus of ZERO to ONE – Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization, accessing that vast active living intelligence system of our own. The book started as a chapter for FREE’s next volume, requested by Rey Hernandez, and answering three questions and prompted more consideration beyond the page limitation for the chapter.

vast active living intelligence systemThe author demonstrates that there is a huge space for our civilization and human intelligence to evolve by showing his personal experiences of interacting with advanced intelligence and his lifetime exploration of human nature, cosmology, UFOlogy, and the modalities of experiencing the paranormal powers with like-minded people.

The Sociology of UFOlogy – an inquiry with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove

Sociology of UFOlogy

For decades people have been curious and investigated UFOs in myriad ways. What is the sociology of UFOlogy today? In the late 80s Tim Beckley introduced New Age and Alien Agenda gatherings around the country. The International UFO Congress began in Tucson in 1991 with Ret. Col. Wendelle Stevens, Jim Diletosso and Ken Liljegren’s team as support.

I’ll digress for a moment. My first experiences with non-human intelligence was in 1962, advancing to something different in 1965 which was apparently the ‘normal’ type of contact in the Midwest in the 50s and 60s, the orange cigar-shaped cloud. During that same period, UFOs were apparently shutting down ICBM silos around the globe with exquisite showmanship.

Curious and investigative, I continued my quest to know, not just what, how this kinda stuff happens. I love the high strangeness. What makes it tick? I had a lot of questions, numerous events and some experiences I still wonder about today. I had deep conversations with a lot of folks; experts, researchers and experiencers across the gamut.

Making a Few Friends in the Fray

I got to know Jim and Wendelle over the years. Jim and I became friends and later he recommended me as manager for The Prophets Conference (1997). It gave me an opportunity to have conversations that are extremely rare, up close and personal without interruption. Some of the folks who were there: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven Greer, Jose Arguelles, David Icke, Linda Molten-Howe, Stanton Friedman, Zacharia Sitchen and 2 dozen more. I got to know many prominent folks in the field of UFOlogy many years ago, with friendships still today.

2010 began by assuming responsibility for a UFO discussion group in the Phoenix valley. We met in a community room of a local fire station. Our guest speakers included Claude Swanson, Travis Walton, Alejandro Rojas and more. We also had meditation experiments using music that produced some varied and amazing personal experiences, all of a contact nature. There were about 35 people in the room. Afterward, one elderly woman reported seeing massive ET machinery surrounding the group and ‘working’ on each person.

From 2010 to 2014 I was a vendor at the IUFOC, having moved to Ft. McDowell in Arizona. In 2013 we debuted UFOlogyPRSS.com at the International UFO Congress, with over 100 blogs from around the world in one place, up-to-the-moment material. It rose the bar for UFOlogy-based websites. It was our virtual model of folks getting along even if they had opposing views. We’ve also got a number of authors featured; podcasts and radio shows, too.

Sociology of Ufology

Meanwhile, UFOlogy in general seems to be challenged. Experiencers are on one side and the nuts and bolts scientists on the other with conspiratorialists scattered about in each camp. Dr. Mishlove and I take a frank and open look at what the Sociology of UFOlogy is today. Although challenges do exist, there seems to be a call for change. What that will be remains to be seen.

Here’s how Dr. Mishlove framed the interview, “Here he [Zen] speaks as a participant-observer sharing his reflections on the current community of interest centering on UFO phenomena. He describes his disillusionment with a nexus of individuals focusing on the notions of the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. He describes various fears associated with the very idea of alien life forms. However, he suggests that we presently have no actual evidence that there is a reason to be fearful of UFO activity.”

In the ‘contact’ scenarios, experiencers have to deal with seemingly incredulous events and still continue with some kind of ‘normal’ life. Whether individual or family needs, the daily functional activity still needs doing. There is something else going on, though, as shows like this don’t happen if the conversation isn’t necessary, imho.

Forward Momentum

Our hopes were to address common concerns and explore a little of what else is happening. I was a willing participant in spite of my trepidation. Talking about the Ashtar Command and Galactic Federation, however real and true they may be, is not the kind of talk that garners credibility normally. There’s evidence they do exist dating back to 1952 with George Van Tassel.

Although we discussed the potential confusion with deities, there is still more confusion around the topic. George Van Tassel met Robert Short, who took on the ‘Ashtar Command’ label, used it for contrary purposes and wasn’t connected to the ‘source’ like George. I met Bob in the late 1980s and didn’t feel he had a good connection, if any, talking nonsense about conspiracy theories interwoven with an Ashtar Command that would somehow take action against the cabal. The latter was infectious and unfortunately obfuscates the truth still, imho.

Jeffrey made a delicate subject easy to discuss. We had a nice mind flight. Perhaps you’ll consider sharing this article and video.

More importantly share New Thinking Allowed. Thanks in advance.

My wife asked me to include this interview from January of 2013. She said it spoke to her in ways nothing else had. She’s Russian-born and trained pianist as well as a 3HO Kundalini Yoga teacher. She has a compelling argument…
