Ufology Conundrums – UAP/UFO and Multidimensional Mayhem

State of Affairs or Affectation in Ufology Updates

We’ve all been aware of the recent advances in some areas of Ufology updates. Some embrace it and some are still suspicious. As much as we may not like to admit it, To The Stars Academy is raising the bar or at worst raising awareness in the public view. As with any newly formed group with suspicious characters there are naysayers and supporters by the score. The battle to bring information to the public has taken on a new look on and off stage.

The one thing that TTSA has done, though, it generated an explosion of interest in the UFO phenomena in the main stream news and public eye. Ufology updates continue to develop. Proof and truth will come out eventually, or not, yet the boost in exposure could bode well for the Ufology community IF there is a meeting of minds and some sort of demonstrable collaboration beyond TTSA. One of their first publications sets the stage for their dive into disclosure.

Hard and soft approaches are both necessary in the adjudication of experience and material ufology updatesevidence. The hard side is the nuts and bolts approach driven by evidence and ‘proof’ that seems to pass all the usual tests. The soft side is more delicate as it is subjective, with little evidence other than the ability to articulate effectively, driven by the desire to share for multiple reasons. The former sits well with materialists and the latter, not so much.

Ufology is known for its mysteries and mysterious characters, some with better reputations than others, yet they all play the game of notoriety and temptation. Everyone wants you to believe their story and many seem to be in conflict. They sometimes proffer data, details or disclosure as ‘exclusive’ in an attempt to get folks on the edge of their seats waiting for more.

Social Media has become a place of open denial and deep discussion. The marketing gurus have a field day with the unsuspecting public. It still seems like a contest for who can build the biggest fan base. This one or that one is always posting something to demonstrate their knowledge and research capability, though many assumptions and conjecture takes place as well. Sometimes posts prove noteworthy.

The reports of secret space programs and interaction with ‘alien’ races is another aspect that appears to be producing more incredulity than believe-ability in the field. The reports have provided certain folks great notoriety and a huge fan base of would-be believers. The stories certain garnered attention from event promoters as major attractions for the unsuspecting public. Only time will prove the reality.

Some Ufologists and experiencers that have been around long before the term are puzzled by the ‘new’ information shared through various channels on social media as much of it has been ‘revealed’ through many presenters and vendors at UFO expos for decades. The numbers in those groups are obviously small in comparison, so with recent main stream media sources picking up the ball our hopes for better coverage are at least partially fulfilled.

The nuts and bolts side of Ufology has to do, for the most part, with historical events, documents, meetings, photos, videos and evidence of extraterrestrial craft or technology. Those elements are a critical part of ufology in bringing the information to the public. Why? Hopefully for the public good. What would the optimal results be if there were full or even partial disclosure? What would desired Ufology updates look like?

There is still another aspect of within the field, non-competitive in perspective, that has evolved over time and with progression of extended contact of a largely non-physical variety.

Experiencer-Driven Data

There is another side to the story that is both ambiguous and incommensurate; the subjective experiences of folks claiming contact or engagement by non-human or extraterrestrial intelligence. It is a grey area for sure. Depending on the lens we view it through, it can be seen as incredulous or incredible. We need data, right? Studies have been made. Both FREE and MUFON have engaged the inquiry of experiencers.

Data from experiencers is different than the nuts and bolts side of Ufology. It’s the soft side mentioned previously, full of subjective accounts. Those accounts range from emotionally-laden fear-based descriptions of encounters to the more objective and fearless descriptions of self-aware and perhaps even participatory engagement. Discernment is important.

Some of the more hard approach public figures who’ve been steeped in conspiracy, ufology updatesgovernment disclosure, exploration of evidence and material sciences have a real challenge with the soft approach. They are hard pressed to acknowledge the experiential side as there is no knowledge base or direct experience for them to relate. A recent interview and honest response regarding a very prominent figure who has emerged in the experiencer field.

The historical perspective of experiencers and their accounts goes back decades in present times and perhaps millennia in regards to ancient texts. The latter offers descriptions based on the common language and philosophies of the time. Today we can review many of these accounts and find incredible similarities across the centuries. Proof of dominance and control is sorely lacking, yet fear-based thinking still keeps many in the dark.

Most recently, the cross-referencing of experiential information and the notion of the evolution of consciousness have become more interesting to Ufologists. The notion of applied quantum physics in relation to the aspect of awareness and, in a large sense, creating reality unconsciously seems to be of great concern. Nearly every aspect of communication from non-human or extraterrestrial intelligence (for lack of better descriptors) leans toward a rise of consciousness.

What does that rise of consciousness mean? Perhaps it is as simple as becoming self-aware, managing our thoughts and feelings in positive ways. Perhaps it is the notion that all things are connected and we affect reality by our baseline energy, the attitude we carry with us. Perhaps it extends to our community and world in respect to the environment and effective planetary administration, managing resources so the all people can be cared for and nurtured.

There are still concerns among experiencers, though. Not everyone perceives their experiences as benign or benevolent. Extended play, the long-term experiencers, do tend to change their point of view over time, from a less than desirable experience to one of understanding a larger picture and the overcoming of their fears was more important. Confronting incongruous notions might be the next phase of creating better baseline knowledge.

Ufology Updates – 2019 Year in Review

We participated in a large panel discussion recently, embedded below, that reviewed the year’s greatest changes and/or events in Ufology, a kind of Ufology update. Certainly the ‘leaked’ released Navy videos of Unidentified Arial Phenomena (UAP) brought the light of day into a dark room. Michio Kaku’s interview with Jaime Maussan included the considerations of advanced civilizations beyond the burden of proof now being on the governments, to prove the UAPs aren’t extraterrestrial.

Spyros brings up his video (alien autopsy) and the massive hoax created by it, noting how gullible the public is still, and how falsified information is so easily introduced and accepted by the public (even some Ufologists) as being true. We’ve got a long way to go to find ways of vetting information that are consistent and uniform. It may take quite some time for that to happen, but it would be a necessary component of establishing some kind of unified front in Ufology.

We all want Disclosure, right? How do we want it? Our governments, military and leaders are ufology updatestasked with keeping us safe. NOTHING that even comes close to threatening our safety will ever be fully revealed to the public. The public’s opinion may vary as to how disclosure is best, through intelligent conversation regarding it doesn’t seem to be consistent. The reality is the public is, at best, squeamish when it comes to the appearance of the unknown let alone engaging it. We’re thinking in human and mostly fear-based terms.

Storming Area 51 became a fad overnight, with thousands of people showing up for the event. Did they really expect to storm Area 51? It seems doubtful, but it did give folks a chance to party in the desert. We all need a good party to move things forward. The number of foreign press that covered the event also brought the topic to the world, not just the US. We might anticipate a broader range of coverage as the events develop, though it still seems to be largely focused on the nuts and bolts side of Ufology.

Our concern here at UfologyPRSS is that by all indications and protocols for establishing movements, it starts with a unified front with individuals and organizations aligning with basic components or elements of a theme or even manifesto. There are a number of documents and organizations, but they largely seem autonomous and unwilling to collaborate, though some do.

What will it take for Ufologists to find common ground? Will the field be able to have some kind of harmonic convergence between the hard and soft components of the phenomena and, if so, how will it occur? Something to begin considering, in our opinion. Stay tuned for more Ufology Updates…

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.

Mysterious Etherians Echo Quantum Theory – Wave to Form Action

While doing some research, this article came across the screen. No claims to authenticity are made here, discernment is key. The material presents interesting perspectives being discussed among present-day ufologists… nearly 70 years later.


I have been asked almost every possible question the human mind could devise or imagine concerning The Etherian Peoples. In the beginning of my attempts to share with my friends and their friends something of the experiences I had with these Beings I went into great detail and used every means at my disposal to try and answer questions. Before long I realized that no matter how long I talked, what I said and what I implied, my listeners were obtaining very little information. At first I attributed this to my own lack of descriptive powers; and I lay awake nights trying to think up ways and means to more clearly and accurately explain the many remarkable situations which are so unfamiliar to the people of our planet. Eventually I came to the paramount reason why I was having so little success in passing my knowledge on to my friends. I isolated, so to speak, the major impasse over which I seemed unable to take anyone.

Stripped of endlessly related modifications, comparatives and conditions I saw, at last, that the one reason why I could not sensibly explain Etheria to my earthly friends lay in a strange and completely absurd distinction which we all make concerning the very fundamentals of our material existence. For various reasons we, as earth people, have built up a system of religious, philosophical or meta-physical barriers which actually have no existence, or validity, except in our own minds. We make a very peculiar distinction between what we call “outer” and “inner”, or “material” and “spiritual”, “human” and “divine”.

The Etherians make no distinction between the different rates of “consciousness” between the “visible” and the “invisible”, as do we. To Them, the idea of “Man” being human or earthly and “God” being divine or spiritual is a ludicrous bit of infantile nonsense. The Etherians have absolutely no comprehension of an “inner world” and an “outer plane”. They know nothing of an earth and its related heaven (which forms the basis of all our world religions.)

Our habit of making, or trying to make, an impassable boundary between two or more vibratory levels of energy and substance seems totally insane to Them. To these Peoples of “Inner and Outer Space” we are the veriest idiots in that we attempt to regard one vibration or level of substance as mortal, physical and essentially evil; and another level of the same substance as divine, exalted immortal and it celestial in its basic qualities.

The Etherians are unable to make any distinctions (save possibly a hypothetical premise in order to understand our lopsided attitudes between those elements of being which we call variously mind, will, energy, substance, matter and spirit. Perhaps I should condition that statement slightly since They are brilliantly able to discuss these various elements as such. But They do not make, nor do They see the slightest necessity to make, a distinction between will, energy, mind and so on as these elements operate in different levels and with different speeds or vibrations. In other words, our “human” will is as valid to Them as is that will which we assign to our deity. The energy and substance of our physical or “earthly” plane is as divine, as heavenly, as cosmic as the energy and matter of the “inner planes” or our “heaven”. “God’s will”, as opposed to or superior to “man’s will”, is an absurdity to the Etherians. They do not understand how we can be so ridiculous as to make such distinctions in our religions and philosophies. It is the same, to Them, as considering ice an earthly, mortal substance; water an astral or psychic material; and vapor as heavenly and divine!

The apologists for our human whimsicalities may proffer the excuse that we do not know and see these “inner planes” and should therefore be forgiven our intellectual inconsistencies in this matter of the so-called human and divine.

However, neither do the people of Etheria “see” the various planes or know them as precisely as They understand the one in which They happen to be functioning at any given moment. We are surrounded constantly by forces which are not visible, not material in any tangible or substantial sense — yet we do not hesitate to use them and to regard them as normal, earthly, “human” and a part of our contemporary consciousness. The currents in our electrical machines are certainly of a magical, psychic and occult nature. We never “see” them. We see only the reactions of them, the result of harnessing them to our needs and requirements. Still We do not deify electricity, label it astral and fence it in with philosophical premises.

The Etherian has no consciousness of anything until he or she uses it through one or more of his senses. Then he “knows” it, understands something of its nature, and endeavors to make it a part of himself. And in this last endeavor lies, probably if not certainly, the crux of the entire difference between ourselves and the selves of these remarkable people.

The mental processes of the Etherians are brilliantly contrived to enable the Ego, or if you like, the Spirit, to contact endless aspects of substance and force in whatever natural element, or plane, he may find himself. This utilitarian capacity produces a pantheistic philosophy that is intensely practical and of immediate purpose to him. [3]In our philosophy we speculate — while these strange Etherian people operate. Their metaphysical systems are extraordinary simple and direct, and instantly applicable to their normal and essential needs. The huge volumes of theoretical speculation and guess-work with which our own philosophers have occupied themselves over the centuries might interest the Etherians as so much theosophical curiosa; but They dismiss our topheavy philosophies as indifferently as we dismiss the efforts of certain oriental pundits to prove how long is forever, how high is up.

In our present earthly, human instruments is to be found the basic element or aspect of every force and power which moves through our own planet, and the other globes which make up our system. But of this we know, and have known, precious little. The Etherians believe that we, of earth, should give our first attention to a discovery and recognition of the forces and elements which compose our instrument — and stop speculating what kind of a heaven or paradise we will inherit when we die.

The ability of the Etherian peoples to use the forces of life and energy within their bodies is achieved, so They say (and They should surely know), by Their becoming conscious of these forces through the application and control of Their senses. My last letter went into this far enough to present the idea at least as a theoretical proposition, (a proposition which our earthly occult “leaders” have choked upon and promptly spit out — for the simple reason that such a theory demands a personal application of its students. Horrible thought!)

The philosophy of Etheria, on this point is wonderfully simple and direct: The more one uses of God, the more one understands or knows God. And the more one knows God the more one becomes — God. Take it or leave it; you cannot contrive a more sensible and practical attitude. In Etheria, the first law of life is — use. What you have in Etheria — you use; and what you use, you become, CONSCIOUSLY BECOME. Automatic living, so popular in our world, is regarded with horrified distaste and revulsion in Etheria. Hence, through the simple process of using, consciously, a part of God, Etherians become God. And they produce scientific wonders which make us the equal of nothing, in comparison.

The beings of Etheria are unable to experience death as do the beings of earth. Etherians do not go to “Paradise” simply because they do not know anything about such a “heavenly” state — and do not seem at all distressed by such a fate.

However, there is a state which might be likened, slightly, to that which we of this earthly world experience. An Etherian may “die” several times during a hundred years or so. But it is a death in the same sense that we all die to our childhood state and go on into what we call maturity.

Death, in our understanding, is impossible to an Etherian because he is not imprisoned in his body by the absurd notions which we insist upon believing to be part of a “divine” plan. His body is an instrument in the most literal and exact sense of the word. The Etherian takes on, and leaves off, a body as easily and consistently as the radio-wave flows through a small, simple instrument of a single tube — or through the highly complex set packed with tubes and magical equipment. He will no more identify himself with a body (in the sense of ownership, or egoic imprisonment) than does the free-flowing radio-wave.

The people of Etheria are totally free from the endless distinctions, reservations, and conditions of substance with which we surround ourselves, and with which, sooner or later, we destroy these selves. Not only do we establish immutable standards of mind and emotion that distinguish us from what we term “animals”. We also regard the body of these animals as of a substance less “divine”, less “Spiritual” and “holy” than our own. And we do not even consider the plant and mineral forms as having any possible relation or similarity to our own forms.

In this pitifully primitive world of earth we manage to achieve rather sublime heights in the creative arts, through the development of superlative faculties of rhythm, harmony, coordination and comparison. Yet we are hopelessly doomed by our apparent inability to use these same creative faculties to pierce the tragically artificial dimension we impose in terms of religion and philosophy.

Now and then I have ventured to make a statement which is based in absolute reality, and which holds the solution to most of the questions troubling those few earthly minds who seriously, and urgently, seek to grasp the meaning and message of Etheria and its races. I will make it here — without the slightest anticipation of anyone accepting, or considering it:

The Flying Saucers, Discs and other Aeroforms (their number is legion) are, in many instances the actual bodies of the Etherian creatures. (And here we shall all-bow our venerable heads in a moment of silence to mark the point at which Gerald’s Light went out, or off the well-known beam.)

It is possible that this latest deduction of my deluded brain may evoke a bit more response, from that pontifical hierarchy of “authorities” which suggests extreme caution in these matters, than did my last letters. I shall, however, not wait for that august assembly to bestir itself from its complacent slumber upon the pinnacles of the philosophical mountain (which they regard as their private property), and give me the nod to go ahead. It is to these self same authorities that mankind owes its present condition of pitiful ignorance and intellectual poverty.

Benevolent ET – Malevolent ET… Is it just our perception?

If there are some less beneficial ETI (as has also been reported by contactees and/or experiencers) it stands to reason that there may be an agreement among different ETI civilizations that are able to operate on Earth; a balance of power, so to speak.

According to specific communications received and confirmed by several ‘antennas’ inside the Rahma contacts (including R. Gonzalez) since the 1970’s, unfortunately, some ETs would conquer or destroy us and there is in place a protection mechanism under the intention of allowing humans opportunities to continue evolving.

But if one is in the military it is understandable not to want to rely solely upon the protection of others but, rather, to participate in one’s own protection. If segments of the human family have developed gravity (and inertial) shielding and a stage previous to transdimensional technologies, including energy-transmitting, scalar, longitudinal pulses (that may have affected the flight of some ETI craft causing them to crash), it is conceivable that the technology can be enhanced and perfected.

Dr. Greer stated that ETI prefer not to materialize their craft completely in our physical system because – by doing so- they become vulnerable. There may, in fact, be some ETI craft not impervious to what we can do and 72+ years of continuous secret research into their technologies has probably yielded viable results as per what technologies humans can fabricate to counteract at least some ETI craft. Unfortunately, this path of self-defense is being overdone. It may well be that the public is being honed to fear the ETI by declarations like Mr. Delonge’s.

The path of weaponizing against ETI craft should be second to the emphasis of establishing peaceful contacts with their makers and inspiring humanity to desire a more connected and wiser way of living in harmony with each other and with nature. Moreover, the emphasis on weaponizing would likely attract countermeasures and more negativity from the few ETI entities we are probably being protected from.

Even if Mr. DeLonge had been briefed about some genuine negative events with UFOs, he is overdoing that aspect. I understand that even if the majority of events appear to be benevolent and some are not, there is a genuine need to prepare to defend ourselves. However, we need to be able to handle this proportionately – without fear-mongering – because we need to collectively prepare to grow up as a species, understand more advanced or fundamental connecting principles, and to establish peaceful contact with the experiencer reported majority of benevolent extraterrestrial intelligences (some or all of whom may be interdimensional, from the future, another frequency domain, parallel universe, etc).

With the significant ex-Government employee influences they exert on the media, TDL and TTSA should also mention the importance of attempting peaceful contacts with the ETs that do not seem to be a threat (and which have been manifesting on Earth quite likely for eons of linear time). Since they have already spoken and written about the importance of psi phenomena and consciousness, they should attempt telepathy and other such means to establish (along with selected researchers and contactees) a constructive rapport with some of the UAP intelligences. At the very least to find out who is who among them and who may already be our long-time allies.

What I find rather perplexing is the generalization of ETI as one basic group, even with the different races. There is no inclination, it seems, to look at the various levels of their evolution. Even something as simple are referencing the Kardashev scale and placing them somewhere in it.

I would seem that a Type I would have a vastly different relationship with humans than a Type III, for example. It would still seem, though, that any race that has developed the ability to travel through the stars would be respectful of other planets and races still in their lower evolutionary states. The notion, imho, would be to assist them somehow in any way they would be paying attention.

Any race observing the current condition of our planetary chaos and lack of attention to each other as well as our sustainability would probably keep their distance. Attempts to ‘conquer’ with advanced technology would be indefensible, it would seem, and yet none has ever occurred… ever. Yet, we still want to conquer each other.

I believe that if we focus too much on the “threat” ETs may pose we may attract it. However, threat assessments cannot be ignored either under a neutral exopolitical assessment, a love and light assessment or a national (and worldwide) security assessment. However, I think that we should focus more on getting to know our “visitors” through peaceful means; a mutual respect based on the spiritual and consciousness factors we share with them. Interestingly, in the article “Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity?

A Scenario Analysis” by Baum, Haqq-Misra, and Domagal-Goldman, it is speculated that even ET culture varieties guided by universalist, pro-diversity and ecological values might find us to be a peril to the cosmos and wipe us out to preserve more forms of life. From the perspective of not knowing who the “visitors” are it is a rational consideration. In fact, many other of their considerations are reasonable. Another consideration is that just because most have been friendly towards us we would have to trust that they will not have a change of heart or dissident opinions that are against us.

Since they are not perfect, a peaceful, advanced civilization may inadvertently contaminate us with a virus or a mistake on their part their presence may increase human disarray and discouragement about our alleged superiority in the scheme of things. But if we knew for sure that they have been active on land, and the skies, and under the oceans for eons on Earth, even taking humans in various ways without being catastrophic to life (as far as we know), we would have to learn to live with them.

For instance, we would need to know how to distinguish the signatures of ET craft from ever more advanced (perhaps anti-gravity) human craft and allow the former to go about their business. Is the ape side of our nature capable of adapting by being embraced by our universalist side?

We already ARE living with them, Giorgio. That’s the distinction many are still not willing to admit, let alone understand. From a number of accounts from off-planet trips given to certain ones, the information is consistent in that other civilizations, like ours, have destroyed themselves. NO civilization has been destroyed or manipulated directly by ETI. In fact, the overwhelmingly consistent message is that we need help, not hindrance, in our evolutionary path to sustainability. We’re threatening that on our own currently.

Whether by atomic blast (some civilization have succumbed) or by natural disasters due negligence of natural order, we’re still on the brink of both potentially. We’ve not listened to early warnings about not understanding the atom and we’ve certainly caused extinctions of species beyond comparison in the last century, if not half-century due to our behavior toward our environment.

How can we possibly be so ignorant of our own activity?

We are threatening ourselves perhaps more than how ETI may be doing so but why? Perhaps the current expression of our human nature and potential make it impossible not to be like this. Perhaps our human nature has not awakened to its universalist potential beyond physical life because the need to attend to physical needs in a classic way is too great. And, perhaps, no amount of facts and good reasons can do much to change this. What we need to change may be incredibly profound.

Worldwide, individuals (as members of the human species) tend to be stubbornly parochial or simplistic and two-valued in their worldviews. By two-valued, I mean dichotomous. And most are willing to defend those views by setting aside facts and reason. Or simply to reassert a personal sense of identity against someone else who stated something different. It is a thickheadedness. Perhaps a stubbornness stemming from our evolutionary path.

In fact, fight or flight regions in our brains automatically lit up when we see a member of another race approaching. Our first response is “potential threat.” And emotional attachments prevail over facts and reason unless it is the way of our identity tribe to think otherwise. We are tribal. We all seek to fulfill the same basic needs but divide ourselves into affinity or similarity groups. It is identity politics. The “us vs. them” inclination is atavistic, maybe ever since we roamed in primate troupes, hunting parties and defended our paleolithic in-group and wives.

Besides personal and character differences, many of us abide by the majority rule and can be rather easily swayed by group pressure to be cooperative, kind and respectful of differences or idiotic a-holes. Denial of reality is a continuous characteristic everywhere unless our identity group reassures us that it’s cool to prefer facts. But even if we were to prefer facts, we tend to fall into personal privileges. And abuse of power and corruption is rampant and makes life miserable and indignified all over the world.

Legal and illegal mafias all over while we tend to seek immediate gratification. As inveterate cavemen, we tend not to plan far into the future. Moreover, in spite of widespread historical information and technologies that have changed how we live, technologies that have reduced poverty levels, mortality levels, and increased literacy, we tend to repeat our ancestors’ political mistakes because after two or three generations historical memory is typically lost. Books and documentaries do not replace actual living circumstances.

Thus (as Francis Fukuyama noted), many young students in recent demographic cohorts feel that the leadership for the European Union in Brussels is tantamount to fascism! In spite of their poor attention spans, and about one hundred twenty bits per second of processing capacity people are inundated with data and are too lazy and unable to sort genuine information from fake.

This is why we elect narcissistic bullies that engage brain pleasure centers of hope. And the post-WWII, healthy liberal, shared dream of creating a more inclusive, civic, pluralistic, fair world; to spread (and improve) Democracy falters not only under the sway of large corporations controlling public needs and politics but also under nativist, autocratic bravado with easy promises (and a socially-sanctioned scandalous denial of facts) catering to frustrated and fearful voting population segments tired of losing center stage. And a long ETC…

Perhaps we need engaging narratives that tell a new story. Or, perhaps, we can become a wiser species by conscious efforts that awaken us to our deeper nature or do we need artificial enhancement? Maybe we need to be forced to react by disasters?…/why-its-so-hard-to-pay…

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 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…
