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.

I got to know Tim 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.

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.

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…

Multidimensional Millennial Missions – Big Picture and Little Details

Mission and Purpose

Across the web in those places where people tend to share their high strangeness and explore the meaning of events often beyond the scope of our understanding, there is a consistent thread. Nearly everyone believes they are here on Earth at this time to participate in some kind of massive transformation of the human race. Is there anything to back that up?

On the one hand, there are countless prophecies from ancient and current sources that seem to echo this notion that Earth, or rather its population, is going to go through an apocalypse, a change, a shift, a transformation. Some interpretation of crop circles with binary and mathematical coding offer a similar perspective. Recent surveys of contactees or ‘experiencers’ as they are being called now have also indicated there is an awareness amongst the majority of being here on Earth with purpose.

That being said, the definition of the missions are pretty nebulous at present, at least in the folks that are talking about them. Said missions often turn out to be self-declared important information that needs to be shared with the world. Well, that seems pretty old school ego including an aloof and self-important behavior. Gullible folks who don’t know any better get caught up easily. There are a number of so-called ‘galactic representatives’ who generate nothing more than binary presentations (federation vs. cabals) veiled in fluffy stuff. It seems deceptive at best.

If we consider the notion of strong telepaths being exploited by those same cabals, then the messages would probably keep folks anesthetized and passive players in the goings on. There are plenty of stories about telepathic Draconians held prisoner for such purposes. That just doesn’t make any sense at all, but humans trained to do so seems much more plausible. The more likely reality is that folks are just being manipulated. Some even pay money. That’s the bottom line – keeping the lights on for real.

Those who listen to such would be ineffective in their perceived mission, even though they believe they are doing the right thing or that they feel some kind of resonance with the material. Do they really question it, though? There are indeed the well-intended soothsayers, of many varieties, who constantly offer some ‘galactic’ message of one sort or another with a consistent theme. It’s usually the same information regurgitated with a slightly different spin with an occasional tidbit of transcendence. Again, is it sincerely questioned?

Multidimensional Implications

If we look at some of the explanations of universe administrative offices, the achievements to gain them include a distributed consciousness in many that is then re-integrated in one being. In the same way, it could well be possible that one consciousness incarnate may be linked to multiple others in a way that reflects many organizational structures, like a pyramid. Those that have definite yet nebulous inklings toward planetary transformation my just be conduits on call, so to speak, delivering data to their network on demand without even knowing them. It is conceivable that this is possible within the constructs of known quantum mechanics theory, indeed a ‘spooky action at a distance.’

Now postulates of that sort will obviously seem incredulous to most people of a rational mindset who are usually also devoid of any experiential understanding of high strangeness. The challenge is worthy. This area of consciousness is unexplored and therefore not understood for the most part. Attempted explanations of a ‘Planck Field’ or ‘Federation Updates’ bestowing insight and understanding doesn’t seem to be the real deal either, even thought the purveyors would like you to believe it… many do. Questions do have answers. Perhaps the right ones aren’t being asked yet.

What does seem to be the real deal are the specific actions of those who engage larger environments in service and regardless of the industry or population, they somehow manage to become involved with something bigger than they are and either overtly or subtly affect the process or project. These folks are less likely to stick their heads up in online groups, or have an online presence at all. They are too busy and see the groups as children trying to find their way.

Perhaps it’s like storytellers who weave their tales into the consciousness of humankind to have them emerge over time as real and significant scenarios that do impact our future in ways we would not previously have thought possible. Quantum theories do offer room for such things to occur whether through telepathic delivery (human or non-human) and/or the potential for seeing things from a different perspective. The shift opens a door, or many, to changing a previously impenetrable thoughtmosphere.

Practical Mysticism

The dirt (devil) is in the details. The more practical approach to doing things in the real world requires a steady hand on the wheel. If/when we question mission or purpose (knowing we have one) the opportunities to explore it become present. It will likely come in the form of something that challenges one to step up, at least a little, and address a fear or learn a new skill. These kinds of activities may go on for years or decades, depending on the needs of the mission. It is a steady as she goes plan.

This plan follows the standard process of creating things in the material world. If we don’t know how, then we ask questions and await answers, mentors and training to fulfill the request. It comes, although we might not always recognized it at first, or even until much later. The perseverance and tenacity to reach the level of being fit for duty, so to speak, may involve a lifetime of preparation. The big picture often requires a lifetime of dedication.

This can be tremendously frustrating to the uninitiated who believe things should just drop in their laps for them to complete their mission. Part and parcel to every mission on Earth is the essential requirement of learning how to get along, being available for the process of harmony among people and planet to become party of one’s being. Arriving on Earth with such a responsibility is not an easy path at all, until we release all resistance and become the flow.
