“Awakening is not a matter of intelligence. Many intelligent people are deep in illusion. But rather, awakening happens when one has an insatiable thirst to know the truth.” Author Unknown
Awakening or illusion? How that insatiable thirst dispels the illusion depends on how awake we choose to be and the willingness to suspend or slice away false belief systems. We have to test them first, of course. Recycling memories tends to offer new insights and thoughts for me. Perhaps they’ll be interesting to you as the stream of consciousness flows onto the page. Putting thoughts to writing can be so cathartic.
What is truth? We refer to it, but do we ever really define it so that we can agree on it? I mean, truth would be ubiquitous and undeniable, right? I suppose, in a way, that might be a clear explanation of how we work, how we relate to each other, how we relate to the world or worlds we may perceive? Perhaps a combination of a mathematical and psycho-spiritual model that would explain the intelligence at work throughout? What is awakening related to this?
What would it do if we knew it? How would our lives look if we not only knew it, but lived it? Would you say that within this insatiable thirst there is a new living awareness that emerges? What is that like? Does it make sense? Is that sense being made common?
This emerging awareness seems completely subjective in the discovery process. Attempts to articulate a multi-dimensional funnel of data into linear ears and eyes has been going on for millennia. Alas, we still tend to argue about the details and miss the overarching message(s). Can the insatiable curiosity in many cause an upwising in the world? Big T, little t, it’s ultimately the same, so what is your concept of truth?
Well, that got a little deeper than intended. On a more practical note, it sure seems that this theme runs across a plethora of playing fields in our present time. The information age and data available for searching is causing an evolution in intelligence across the world. It would seem only logical that the ability to discern would also reach new levels in our lives.
Awakening – Illusion
Once we find this ‘whatever we’re looking for’ truth, the mere acquisition of it might make it suspicious at first. It’s natural. We’re always confused by the unknown suddenly becoming known, which it would seem is how the process of discovering truth works. Applying that to the field of Ufology is no small task. It’s hard to cut through the din.
There is a lot of concern voiced by many regarding the ‘experts’ in the field and the way in which they are promoted, or not as the case may be. There are numerous questions flying around social media platforms in the hundreds of groups that are aligned under the Ufology banner. They range from the absurd to the transformational in scope.
It’s fairly easy to spot the absurd or pejorative and dismiss them as just uninformed or experientially bereft. Then there are those who have great stories and no real proof, yet are followed by thousands or possibly millions across the web. Let us not forget the researchers who have done a great job at collecting and sharing information, though they tend to speculate about potentials based on incomplete data; experiencers are left out of the loop.
It’s been less than a decade since experiencers, en masse, have started sharing their stories through blogs, groups, pages, podcasts and web chats. Less than 20 years ago when the curator first dove into the web, there were extremely small numbers of folks willing to expose themselves to scrutiny. Spirit Web was big then, a chat platform with multiple rooms and topics. Today, the scene is prolific with thousands of opportunities to engage on hundreds of platforms.
The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization started in Sturgeon Bay, WI in 1952 and moved to Tucson, AZ in 1960. The National UFO Conference began in 1963 in Hollywood, of course. MUFON, Inc. was originally established as the Midwest UFO Network on 31 May 1969, in Quincy, Illinois. The conference craze began emerging in the early 1990s with the first International UFO Congress in Tucson, then Tim Beckley’s New Age and Alien Agenda conferences. The Prophets Conferences were big in the mid to late-90s, the curator managed their Phoenix event in 1997. Whole Life Expos began around the same time, too. An ex-board member of WLE started Contact in the Desert, another profitable venture, in 2013.
Awakening the Fray
Now there are dozens of Ufology-focused events around the world, most of which can be found on our website as we become aware of them. It is a niche market for sure, yet it has its celebrities and movie stars, just like the old days. Just how those celebrities are made is another perplexing question as there are many agendas spiraling within the field; some glaring and some a little less detectable at first. There are those who genuinely admit they don’t know much, though they have managed to gather enough data and some objective views on the subjective experiences of others.
We tend to listen and nod our heads to the experts of pretty much any field because we rarely understand what they are actually saying, especially the Ph.D.s, yet we don’t want to appear stupid to our peers by asking questions. Those who do have the experience and/or intelligence to ask questions are generally felt to be critical instead of sincere. Intelligent questions get glossed over or unanswered and tend to throw up those BS meter flags, or at least they should.
We certainly do not have all the answers, and maybe not even the questions yet. We still need that insatiable thirst for truth. We’ve had a materialist quest for truth with evidence, exotic metals, photos, ship remnants; material proof of some kind. We have only asked cursory questions regarding the occupants of the crafts we either have seen or trust that are there. The questions cannot be asked because the experiencers have not been let into the game.
Like any process and reflective of the field in general, there are some pretty strange tales and loud mouths in the experiencer groups, too. There are some consistencies, though, however small, that might be a good place to start asking questions. The quest for truth, at any level, is humbling beyond imagination. The small voices who seem genuine and sincere may hold some deeper truths about our relationship with the other planetary civilizations who frequent here.
Humans are resilient, resourceful and even reverent toward challenges in chaos and turmoil. We show as a human race that we can unify to overcome them and restore order. We do it all the time, yet somehow get distracted when it comes to the onslaught of information, personalities and pundits who manage the gate. There are some new developments within the field that are leaning toward incorporating experiencer data and philosophies on contact.
The key for the expansion and potential unification of this field is in collaboration with intention to keep the attention on asking better questions. Like Einstein claims, we cannot answer the questions with our own thinking, yet it is our option to be open to new thinking that allows the flow of information. Many have events where they speak things they did not understand prior to speaking about them in that moment. There is a conduit for information flow within us.
What does that have to do with the insatiable thirst for truth? That flow is what quenches the thirst. It’s like the elixir that resonates throughout our body/mind/spirit/soul to the degree of which we feel ‘electric’ or ‘energized’ or even ‘on fire’ with this discovery. That is the awakening of the conduit within us. It brings humility, not arrogance; compassion, not surreptitiousness. As curator and partial purveyor of profundities, we can all work together to restore order, the most profound truth of all.
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? https://www.fastcompany.com/…/why-its-so-hard-to-pay…
…is the title a cute comedy film about a lovesick alien that has a change of heart about wanting to take over the Earth. It is also the question that many “Earthlings” might ask if they were to meet a live ET. According to the highly speculative popular UFO literature, many assertions have been made claiming the source of origin of UFOs to be from one star system or another. Top answers to the question include Zeta Reticulae, Arcturus and the Pleiades.
TRIBAL WARFARE ON PLANET EARTH
In the 20th century alone, over 100 million humans were killed in wars and revolutions. Ufologist Stanton Friedman has observed that “tribal warfare” is a major human endeavor. Therefore, it’s extremely unlikely that any information we receive from the so-called ETs about their planet of origin will be accurate. I imagine that self-preservation is a strategy with universal appeal. If the beings associated with UFOs ever told us where they come from, it seems likely that in a few hundred years we might want to export what Stanton called “our brand of ‘friendship’ to the stars.”
SNR, Signal to Noise Ratio
I remember the term that prominent UFO researcher Grant Cameron has applied to the messages that experiencers receive from alleged ET sources. The signal-to-noise ratio is often abbreviated according to Wikipedia as SNR or S/N). In scientific applications it compares the amount of useful signal to background noise. SNR can also be used to compare the ratio of desired information to irrelevant data in say an online discussion. The “noise” here might be off topic comments that prevent relevant data from being exchanged.
When UFO researchers are given supposedly accurate information from unacknowledged sources of so-called insiders, opportunities to verify the data are often non-existent. Thus by dutifully repeating such unverifiable accounts, a journalist or UFO researcher runs the risk of disseminating disinformation meant to confuse or deceive the public.
When it comes to encounters with representatives of what might be called “higher intelligence agencies,” the so-called aliens can be reasonably expected to be doing something very similar. What experiencers are told is probably a mixture of some true information along with disinformation. In addition, it is likely that human experiencers might not have the capacity to accurately transmit knowledge that is beyond their level of comprehension. Experiencers’ narratives might therefore reflect human limitations and not always a deliberate attempt to systematically deceive.
THOSE ATTEMPTING PEACEFUL INTERACTIONS ARE ON THE FRINGE
As a part time promoter of a diverse network of contactees that I call the “Contact Underground,” I count myself among the flying saucer faithful. It is my assessment that the UFO phenomenon is likely, at least in part, extraterrestrial in nature. Attempts to peacefully interact with UFO intelligence in my judgment is a socially responsible course of action.
This endeavor understandably is considered to be fringe by the larger society. Alas contactees have also been disparaged by important elements of the UFO research community. In my opinion the UFO research “mainstream” has placed too much attention in the past on collecting sighting reports. Although perhaps not impossible, it would be a radical step for most UFO investigators to develop protocols that would enable them to directly interact with the alleged ETs as we in the contact network claim that we are doing.
“SPEAK TO ET”
It is now over 70 years since the Roswell Incident and I am compelled to ask how much more can we learn by categorizing the shape, color, position in the sky and other physical parameters of UFOs? Like it or not, if we are going to advance our knowledge of the phenomenon then we may have to do as researcher Grant Cameron has suggested in his many public lectures and that is, “Speak to ET.”
This is what I imagine the contact activists are attempting to do. Although the signal to noise ratio may not always be the best, directly interacting with UFO intelligence and staging Human Initiated Contact Experiences (HICE) is a path that increasing numbers of UFO experiencers are pursuing.
We’re a world in fear right now, perhaps rightfully so with the trends of conditions we feel helpless to change. Is it by design or negligence in our own development? Is there a cross-over in fields of study, a synergy of discoveries and knowledge that we’ve missed somehow? The author’s opinion is there is indeed a virtue in contact that can impact our future in positive ways.
Ufology has a convoluted past and severely limited present with the kinds of information that keeps us from moving beyond the separative notions that seem to keep us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile in unifying our efforts toward a virtuous path. For some, it is obvious that this virtuous path does indeed exist and has been either ignored or purposefully obfuscated by those who are still in the command and control paradigm.
So many ‘experts’ are caught up in conspiracy and phenomena, leading us away from a concerted effort to become more self-aware and fearless toward our future. The concerns for our planet and people are real yet many, if not most, feel powerless to change our current course. “Be The Change,” still echoes in the memes and themes across the Internet.
Being the Change
How do we ‘be the change’ in the face of the relentless onslaught of misinformation and intentional distraction from a collaborative and cooperative movement toward harmony among people and planet? Too many feel the ‘harmony among people and planet’ is an incredulous notion we will never be able to manifest as human beings on Earth. To the contrary, there have been statements and inspired presentations of a ‘new age of enlightenment’ for decades.
Ufology has been an environment where money talks and bullshit walks in step with the would-be soothsayers who seem to just want to argue and discredit those who have had real engagement for most of their lives. Countless folks have attempted to enter the fray with open hearts and genuine intention of serving a greater cause which includes becoming part of a universal order amongst the stars.
In a fairly recent interview, the Sociology of Ufology, we discussed the history of Ufology and the path it has taken via the promoters and presenters within the community. The same themes are regurgitated with different personalities over time, nearly all of which leave a skewed view of the reality many face. It is often, but not always, steeped in fear of the unknown rather than embracing opportunities to learn more about ourselves and the universe.
The Virtue of Contact – New Discoveries
In recent years the discovery of consciousness being an ever-growing aspect of ‘contact’ for experiencers led to the exploration of what ‘being awake and aware of our surroundings’ really means on much subtler levels. After all, the subtle clues within synchronicities and the growth in self-awareness is tantamount to the advancement of our understanding within contact scenarios. What were once perceived as threats (confronting our fears) have shifted in experiencers’ understanding toward the fearless nature of the higher vibratory realms our ‘contacts’ present.
Through the tireless efforts of many who see this trend and want to inspire others to consider a new living awareness, progress is being made. Every question has an answer, though we may not understand it immediately. Are we asking the right ones that lead us to the virtue of contact? Instead of looking for validation of our fears, perhaps we can look for evidence of a holistic system that includes our own advancement in consciousness. In the author’s opinion, making sense common is our goal and can be linked to frequency.
Making sense common, you might ask? Across the electromagnetic spectrum and within the thoughtmosphere (collective intelligence) truth has a resonance within our bodies and minds. Indigenous wisdom says there are three brains; the gut, heart and head. The first brain, which we rarely acknowledge as being the most important, is the gut – the solar plexus. It is where we are connected to everything vibrationally – we FEEL first.
The interpretation of those feelings or sensations is where we get bogged down because we don’t have many who’ve been able to give us clear advice, or at least we haven’t looked for it. In fact, though, we’ve been given clear advice through millennia by those who’ve risked their lives to share the wisdom and path to inner or self-awareness. The evidence can be found in countless volumes of literature.
It could be said that a good ‘gut check’ is a primary functional capacity we have for discernment. It could also be said that what we look for intentionally, we always find. The latter serves for both fearful and fearless creations in our lives. Quantum physics even suggests that our realities are malleable until we observe our thoughts manifesting.
What kinds of thoughts are present in your mind?
Speaking of minds and our potentials in the virtue of contact. Channeling has been a ‘go to’ form of information gathering for many as well. The author has had serious questions about the validity of such information coming out of the mouths of those who profess to ‘channel.’ Some years ago he experienced a public session with Steven and April White who channeled Ashtar and Athena. The event left him intensely curious about how connections at that level are made, after being singled out in the audience with their stares during the sessions.
There are many intentional perspectives to consider, yet one stands above them all – the intention to be of service to others. It’s a pure notion, free of ego and disturbance yet nearly always the channeler does not remember anything of what was said. The question of accountability notwithstanding, the information is nearly always pertinent to someone or ones in the audience. Remembering isn’t important. It is not a remedial reading class for regurgitation on demand.
What the author found out some years later during his own experience of ‘letting go’ and allowing a trusted source to engage his body, mind and vocal chords is that the consciousness of the individual is still present, just not locally. Consciousness never completely vacates the scene, so to speak, it just goes to a different location, non-linear and non-local, where yet another private conversation or experience takes place.
It would seem this is a similar experience to many experiencer recounts of either bi-location or teleportation into other realms for the duration of the ‘contact’ experience. The non-linear and non-local event simply cannot be recorded effectively because the brain/mind has no reference to be able to do so; articulation of such events is nearly impossible at first. Tenure, alas, does allow one to learn how to communicate the experience in lesser emotive ways over time.
The consideration of the virtue of contact within the experiencer community and Ufology as a whole would vastly change the direction of our thinking for the good of all.
When you have ‘No Deal’ as an option, you feel liberated because you have no need to manipulate and push your agenda to drive what you want. You can be open and try to understand deeper issues. Steven Covey – Six Paradigms of Human Interaction
Many already know of the Kardashev scale, where the position of a civilization is determined by its access and use of energy, from global to solar system to galaxy. I suspect it goes further, but for now let’s just consider what the corresponding intelligence and overall consciousness might be that is associated with the ability of the planetary civilization.
We, as humans, tend to see things from very limited perspective because we simply cannot comprehend that kind of advanced consciousness. We often perceive it as god-like, yet it still cannot compare to the intelligence that drives the bus. Could it also have something to do with frequency and our understanding of it? Science has proven everything is energy and has an inherent frequency, so it stands to reason we need to explore further.
In consideration of such, how might a Type III civilization communicate with a planetary civilization like ours which is likely to be around a .5 to .7 at present. Taking for granted that interstellar travel and understanding of universal laws has also developed in a Type III, would they see us as needing help in our challenges with planetary resource management and climate changes? Would they try to communicate in helpful ways? How?
We’re aware that free or ‘zero point’ energy exists but are unable to produce any technology capable of utilizing the principles necessary to access Earth’s energy to that degree, yet. There is much discussion about it and perhaps soon we’ll discover a way to actualize its potential and at least put a dent in the pollution our current energy production creates. As long as the competitive environment exists, it might be a while before we learn how to share.
Since childhood I’ve had moments, non-linear and non-local, inspiring an intense desire to understand the nature of how they happened and why. It’s led to the same curiosity toward humanity and our evolution. The number, frequency and intensity of events caused some serious challenges; a juxtaposition of realities that facilitated the development of a unique observational quality and capacity for questions of self and others as I grew up. When The Celestine Prophecy came out I felt a nice corroboration with what I knew already.
It was apparent that I could not have open conversations to explore the experiences in my youth and for most of my adult life. Either I couldn’t articulate things simply enough, my audience just wasn’t able to listen or concerned parental units were afraid of encouraging me. So I began a kind of ongoing compare and contrast essay in my head. If/then inquiries developed from there, often helped by an invisible companion who sounded like a wise elder in my head. I think we all have that voice, I’m just not afraid to admit it.
Much later I found the three main questions that made people most curious. Who is God? Is there life after death? Are we alone in the universe? I explored them, too, and in so doing my life experiences provided the answers, though they rarely matched with popular beliefs. I certainly didn’t expect them, yet I was set up from birth to become curious. I took the bait; hook, line and sinker. It led down an immense and intense rabbit hole.
Leaping from our framework of understanding, limited as it is, into considering the framework of understanding that a Type III civilization would have truly stretches the mind and no-doubt engages what we would consider science fiction now.
Experience Beyond the Norm
Prompted by the knowledge that I was adopted, I had an insatiable curiosity about extended family beyond the physical; a child’s curiosity about mother and father God and beyond. I became aware of a companion, an inner voice of an adult male, that I could converse. In the mid-60s answers to the quest turned into nightly trips to orange cigar-shaped clouds, though never able to remember inside. I had this sense of family that I couldn’t wait to experience again. The experiences would always start with a high-pitched tone, a frequency in my head that seemed to tune me in, sometimes producing OBEs as well.
During my first year in college, technically a 6th quarter sophomore as a result of the CLEP tests, I continued my quest to know truth. I’d practiced meditation, had multiple OBEs and taken a few trips by then. The internal question continued, the voice more instructional and during an afternoon meditation it asked if I was willing to die for what I believed in. It was synchronistic, of course, as I had a protracted prayer request a week before, to know truth and willing to die for it if necessary.
I chose ‘cosmic consciousness’ and simply ‘let go’ of the physical at a perfectly timed moment, which led to and OBE and finding myself in the ‘light’ described by Sanskrit as samadhi, a state of oneness and complete absorption beyond the mind-self. I went beyond that as well, to a state of being surrounded by points of light, something alluded to in the Bush era yet quite different in reality and has no lexicon for demarcation. The awareness of this frequency pervaded the experience, yet added to it instead of distracting my attention.
Coming back into this world, even though I was only gone for a couple of minutes, was like entering my body/mind for the first time. It was almost foreign at first, yet delicious as I felt the sensation of the intimate complexity of my body again. The experience was so intense that I couldn’t keep it to myself and yet was completely misunderstood in trying to articulate it to others afterward.
Looking back it is probably like an intelligence or being from a Type III civilization attempting to communicate with a Type I or less, having no way for the lesser to cognate. It would seem that a Type III civilization, thousands or millions of years ahead of us, would naturally want to communicate with lesser worlds. This is intrinsic among life forms of any strain.
Trials and Tribulations
In spite of the trials and tribulations the journey afterward brought, I was still curious about ‘God’ and how things worked in the span of consciousness I had experienced, from form to formless and back again. I read every spiritual text I could get my hands on for over a decade. I got married and began raising a family with four children until I couldn’t. It was like a timed release, a divorce I didn’t want from a destructive relationship no one deserved. I found myself post-divorce and deeply conflicted at thirty not-so-onederful.
I prayed and searched for self again, only this time real people showed up. I was drawn to a group who practiced the Awareness techniques developed by William Swygard in the 1950s. They also followed the teachings of Ray Standford as members of the Association for the Unfoldment in Man. I moved into the house that was their regular meeting place.
The Swygard techniques, possibly the first remote-viewing procedures, were facilitated processes that allowed an experiencer to move about inner planes and explore spirit guides, chakras and Akashic records (Multi-Level) and, in another, traverse 9 planes of consciousness while pausing in each for reflection and understanding (Multi-plane); in essence non-linear and non-local experiential events. I was already prone to easy exits, so the techniques enabled me to explore easily and report back. The job of the facilitator was not just to guide the experience; they recorded the responses to questions along the way.
The experiencer was always in charge of their direction, though, unlike hypnotic suggestions that I found present in many of the regressionists or abduction-related hypnotherapists that I met later, embedded in the Ufology field and not necessarily helpful to it. The absence of fear in the facilitations using the Swygard method was profound. A decade and a half later I created a digital version of the Multi-plane that wasn’t as personal, yet offered a wider experiential playing field for others.
The events prepared me for another spontaneous event, an answer to questions about God and the Trinity, not necessarily from a Christian perspective either. In preparing for a Multi-level, I was invited to join an entity I met in college that is what one might call a ‘guide’ or ‘ally’ in Castaneda’s world. He escorted me across the universe in what seemed like a kind of wormhole, conversing about my ‘progress’ as we went, and arrived at a display that instantly filled me with awe – three huge white gold-tinged spheres surrounded by perhaps a dozen much smaller bright green spheres.
When I went to see Contact for the first time nearly a decade later I wept during the scene where Ellie went through the wormhole and arrived at the peripheral view of a magnificent starscape. The display seemed like someone had re-created my own experience and put it on the screen for others to share if they could. It was so impactful I didn’t have the desire to talk for hours afterward. I had the same feeling after my only experience of channeling during the same period of engaging Swygard’s work. The sense of awe made me speechless afterward.
It wasn’t just the scene of the spheres that gave me pause. There was another voice, like several as one, that seemed to come from the spheres in answer to my question about God. “We are not only your forefathers, we are also the forefathers of your solar system.” So where does one put that in the collection and referencing of files? What it did was give me more questions, the primary being, ‘if this is the macro, what is the micro?’ I still didn’t comprehend ‘what’ the spheres were, though I knew they were the Creators as we know them.
If this experience was available to me as a silly human with questions, what might a Type III know about the structure of creation, the intelligence that permeates it and the capacity to interact?
Frequency of Information
Several years later, in between viewings of the newly released ‘What the Bleep,’ and a discussion with William Arntz, it occurred to me that it must be the electron, proton and neutron. The ‘space’ is where the consciousness or intelligence that manages manifestation resides. I realized nearly two decades earlier that the 666 was the carbon atom, the science behind the number of knowledge and wisdom, the number of man.
The bridge between science and spirituality was making sense yet I couldn’t even begin to grok the equations that would define it mathematically, though I knew they had to be developed or already exist somewhere. Like the primer in Contact, there had to be something that explained the experience in mathematical and/or scientific terms. In the background in every instance was this frequency, subtle and discrete, yet it was there. I think in some respects it also appears as a cognitive relationship; conversations that matter in our head.
The frequency was perplexing, though. Although it vacillated to some degree, it was always present in the experiences and, the more I was able to listen it seemed to always be there in the background. Sometimes it would get louder for a moment, be in one ear or the other more prominently. The standard response was that it was Tinnitus, though no medical tests were able to prove it. It became a constant companion when I was young and is still with me today. Does focused listening promote or provoke experiences?
Enter the extended communication and events with non-human intelligence and the appearance of various forms we now call greys, insectoids, mantids and reptilians along with some humanoid types. I didn’t put any star-system references to them, nor did I ask. It didn’t seem necessary to know. The frequency, though, was much more intense. I hadn’t made the connection with the Solfeggio frequencies yet, but I did notice subtle differences with each race.
I was visited multiple times over a several year period in the early 90s, one rather strange that was a little embarrassing, yet all seeming to know me beyond any circumstantial events, like we’d been in communication for some time. Each had something to offer to tie-in the previous knowledge I’d gained from childhood through the Swygard period in the summer of 1989, as well as further initiations into what was being referred to as the Ashtar Command. A startling event came a decade later.
The initiations and interactions were nearly too much to take in and still have some functionality in the world, as in holding a job and paying bills. I managed to do it though, as well as produce and host a television show to explore the inner promptings of others and how they dealt with overcoming fears in their personal lives and professional careers. I interviewed over 200, from contactees to city managers to ethnic leaders and university provosts.
These conversations provided a good anchor to explore the dynamics of what had been shared through the previous encounters, from college to the present at that time. I’d always been more alert with synchronistic events, yet what I noticed was events and meeting people began to ‘just happen’ on a more regular basis, apparently as a result of my contemplation and questions toward integrating the understanding I’d been given in pragmatic ways. Giving a glimpse of how people worked through various trials and tribulations to our audience might help them feel like they aren’t alone in the plights.
I was led to various people during this period as well and was instrumental in organizing events that included metaphysical as well as extraterrestrial perspectives and had from 150 to over 5,000 patrons, earning a MBA and Secondary Teaching certification as well. I had a conversation with Dr. Edgar Mitchell during one of them, sharing our interest in consciousness, frequency and contact with intelligent beings beyond our scope of understanding. He shared the understanding that frequency, what was in the silence within, had much to do with advanced intelligence. He launched the Institute for Noetic Sciences as one of the results of his trip.
Edgar told me that when the LEM was descending toward the surface of the moon there were silver metallic cylinders that spiraled around them for at least part of the journey down. He couldn’t determine exactly how big they were. He estimated a meter across and several meters long, yet he could not determine whether they were piloted or remotely controlled. What he did know is that these objects came off the surface of the moon. He couldn’t speak about them, for breach of contract, and had me promise not to say anything until after his death.
I attended many events, had conversations with authors, ‘experts’ and patrons. What I observed with rare exception was a fascination with sensationalism, conspiracy theories and cover-ups that were far from the reality I had been experiencing. Conversations with presenters seemed strained when I asked questions about direct-experience or understanding garnered regarding anything to do with consciousness and/or the engagement of other races toward some beneficial end. None seemed to want to talk about inner experiences, let alone the frequency many experiencers reported. Perhaps it just wasn’t something others experienced.
Then things got really intense for a couple of years, a more public engagement of Ufology to the extent of accepting a leadership role during a conference in Camp Verde, Arizona. My life was turned upside down, or right side up depending on how you look at it. I thought I was prepared, yet a couple of months later I had a week-long symposium onboard a ship and was emceeing the entire thing. I built my first website with articles and information from scouring the web, including all the resources I could find at the time and soon was getting over 25,000 visits a month. Then I got disillusioned with people and process and took it down, redesigned it and moved forward.
I got involved with other passions for a while. I played drums for a few outcasts and social misfits, taught high school, ran the electronic scoring system for fund-raising go-cart races around the country on weekends. I went from public to charter high schools and earned a Master of Arts in Organizational Management in which I wrote a business plan for a peer-community school/village. Then I began facilitating pre-construction partnering workshops, earned a transformational life coaching certification, traveled the country with theater groups and a couple of musical legends, worked for a performing arts center and eventually took over a local UFO Meetup group in 2008 (now defunct).
Frequency within UFOlogy
In 2010, the International UFO Congress moved from Laughlin, Nevada to Fountain Hills, Arizona and I got a few members of our Meetup group to share a vendor table. I’d published a few books by then, too. The following May I had another visitation, only it was different this time. I was awakened by some familiar folks, tall greys I’d known for decade and a half. They showed up, announced I was getting an ‘upgrade’ and proceeded during our brief conversation. I was actually thrilled to feel and hear them again. The ‘upgrade’ felt like something was installed in the back of my head. The sensation was rather intense, but certainly not painful in any respect.
The following year, during the IUFOC, one of our group told me she was shown/told of a device that apparently plugged me into the cosmic computer that was in the back of my head. I hadn’t shared my ‘installation’ experience with anyone except the woman I was living with at the time… no one. It was interesting for me as back in 2000 I had a conversation with Dan Winter, where without provocation he shared with me that he believed ASHTAR was the acronym for the cosmic computer. Go figure…
I continued with the IUFOC for a few years, met the folks at a business expowho designed a digital wire-frame template for curating RSS feeds on virtually any topic. We soon created UfologyPRSS by early 2013 and launched it at the IUFOC that year. The owner of the company had an interest in UFOs so the timing was perfect, yet again. I also did an interview in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains the same month in the backyard of Cynthia Crawford, the et sculptor (RIP). At time the frequency was almost distracting.
The interview in the desert was a public leap into the rabbit hole, a transparency in conversation I hadn’t been able to experience to date. I have to give credit to Adam Abraham for being centered, open and asking the right questions without prejudice of any kind. I exposed myself completely, as transparent and vulnerable as I’ve ever been, yet felt comfortable with Adam and the surroundings in doing so. I noticed the fluctuation of the frequency during it, felt an openness of information flow and yet completely conscious of participant, observer and source.
Over the next few years, communication of intention and supporting information regarding the evolution of our planetary civilization became more prevalent in all my ‘contact’ events. It had been obvious that our leadership, around the world, had been steering us toward destruction and needed some serious redirection. I’m just one guy, so how could that possibly work? I was reminded of the thoughtmosphere, the points of light and the volunteers who’ve come to serve.
I noticed a shift in the kinds of movies that were addressing the extraterrestrial element. They went from the standard Hollywood model of fear-based non-sense, like they’d done with Travis Walton’s story, to something more poignant. Film makers were actually looking at the non-human higher intelligence and helpful qualities beyond our fear-based responses to some perceived alien threat. At the same time, the conversations in Ufology began to consider a more benevolent side of the paradoxical equation they’d been running for decades.
Consciousness, the intimate connection with everything, began appearing in open discussions. People began talking about hearing frequencies that accompanied events and the notion that there really is no threat from space. Along the way I created several websites to demonstrate alternatives and share with others who felt connected to the same ideals. These included my original website remodeled, Mothership Cafe, Planetary Citizens,Independence Arizona and UfologyPRSS.
Back to the frequency, not just the scheduling of events, but the actual frequency that many are reporting being able to hear either just prior to or during contact events. What is it all about? How does it fit in with experiencer explorations into realms we barely know anything about, except the references in some ancient spiritual texts? Could giving it more attention enhance our ability to explore knowledge and understanding of this cosmic order we’re discovering?
Science of Frequency
Let’s go to the science side of things. The electromagnetic spectrum covers a wide range of frequencies, waves that may become particles in the awareness of observation, that spans creation. We have brain waves that are within this spectrum, demarcated into ranges of consciousness from waking to deep trance. We can measure them, but we don’t really have the ability to hear them in our ‘normal’ range of perception for the most part.
Some time ago, in the late 80s, I was introduced to the Shabda as the vibration of all things, like the combination of spiritual and material substances on Earth, also known as the ‘sound current.’ Since that time I’ve notice more explanations of it, yet it is essentially the same, only expanded to the audible stream of energy, emanating from the center of creation. It doesn’t take a great leap to connect the electromagnetic spectrum to this audible energy. It’s a frequency.
Within that frequency, when one can focus attention, are many realms that open to experiential moments. I can’t say that I’ve consistently visited them, though in what appears to be serendipitous and synchronistic moments, I’ve had access. Sometimes for fleeting moments and sometimes for extended periods. I mention the ability I believe we all have to enter those realms in a conversation with Dr. Mishlove, where we discuss a ‘new world order’ that is basically an acknowledgement and alignment with these ‘harmonic’ frequencies that permeate our reality.
Something within us connects us to everything else, though we may not understand it or, more appropriately, be able to utilize it to evolve into a greater experience of being. The evidence of the possibility to do so is contained in every spiritual path, yet there has been no science that brings the hemispheres of the brain together to work as one. The analytical and creative have essentially been at odds for centuries if not millennia. How might we bridge them?
Tom Campbell, who began with Bob Monroe in exploring OBEs to develop both material and practice methods for adventures, states that his work has been an effort to explain the right-brained worlds to left-brain thinkers. Could the corpus collasum, the membrane between the two, be like the center line of the Tao in defining a permeable boundary between the two? In considering the primer from Contact and how it brought a two-dimensional image that made no sense into a three-dimensional view that allowed the building of the machine, also contained in a frequency that was deciphered with math, is there something we’re missing with the Tao?
This may be a stretch for many, to consider a three-dimensional model of the Tao and what it might reveal. We know that energy pulses through our neurocircuitry to convey messages. Light pulses also travel the glass tubes to deliver data packets across the web. If we look at the Tao, the yin/yang symbol, can we envision the pulse of light traveling the strands of DNA in the double-helix, one side light the other dark and reversing as part of a data delivery system deeply embedded in our bodies as a mechanism for consciousness to emerge and align us with a higher order?
Speaking of DNA and hydrogen, there is biology and science that bring the two together in a most elegant way as well. We already know that our sun is comprised of 75% hydrogen. It supplies us with energy for sustenance on so many levels. Harnessing the energy completely, including our solar system, puts us in the Type II Civilization ranking. Let’s look internally.
The hydrogen atom is the bonding agent for the helix of DNA. The complementary base pairs of guanine with cytosine and adenine with thymine connect to one another using hydrogen bonds. These hydrogen bonds between complementary nucleotides are what keeps the two strands of a DNA helix together. Fascinating, huh? Hydrogen atoms, like fractals, are everywhere. Let’s dive a little deeper.
Frequency of Hydrogen et al
The frequency of hydrogen is roughly 1420 MHz and sounds like radio static. It’s interesting to note that the voice of Vrillion, a radio transmission in 1977 that interrupted a British newscast, has a static within it that is consistent throughout the broadcast. I don’t know that any analysis has been done on the static, yet the message from the Ashtar Command has mixed reviews. The same message, essentially, was contained as binary code in a crop circle in August of 2002, “Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe. There is good out there. We oppose deception.”
More recently, as a result of reconnecting with a television show host who inspired me as I was doing One World in the early 90s, I was introduced to a fascinating model of reality called the Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm, TDVP for short. Developed by Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close the mathematical model presents the concept of consciousness, space and time being tethered across a 9 dimensional framework. Reality involves a unified wholeness of the infinite and finite with the infinite pervading the finite experience of content and extent in the Space, Time and “Consciousness” Substrates. This finite-infinite reality is relative to all dimensional-distinction factors, and experienced subjectively (by individual units).
A recent movie titled simply, UFO, and stars one of our favorites from the X-Files, Gillian Anderson, is a story about a sighting and the discovery of a frequency contained in static in the 1420 MHz range that is recorded by the tower at Cincinnati airport. A young college student, a gifted mathematician, discovers it contains an elegant display of mathematical precision that has relevance in current applications of known equations and formulas used to explore communication and locations in space. These equations revealed things like the frequency of the basic hydrogen atom, the most prevalent atom in the universe. It also introduces the Fine-Structure Constant, denoted by α, which might have some relevance in referencing spiritual texts as well.
As I was writing this it occurred to me that the phrase, “I am the Alpha and Omega,” might have some scientific significance, energy and matter within us all. The anthropic principle is a controversial argument of why the fine-structure constant has the value it does: stable matter, and therefore life and intelligent beings, could not exist if its value were much different. The symbol Ω has applications throughout mathematics and physics in surprising relationships. Could it be that the phrase actually integrates energy and matter instead of alluding to some personage in Revelations? Could it possibly mean we are all able to access this awareness or knowledge?
With all that in mind, the intention is to create a flow, a stream of consciousness that assists in investigating the current presentation of information across a wide-spectrum of experiencer perturbations, questions that no doubt are surfacing in the consideration of a new living awareness that is permeating the consciousness of many today. We do have to think differently and pull ourselves out of the deceptive and divisive notions of traditional fear-based human perspectives.
We seek flow; the unimpeded data transfer and development of a new kind of planetary civilization that allows us earthlings the ability to join a greater universal experience. It is my opinion that as we increase the energy of what we call love toward each other, even focusing on and intentionally sharing the ‘frequency’ from within, our world will change for the better rapidly. As it is, we don’t really know if we have time, yet time is all we have. Let’s use it wisely.
