Becoming Fearless to Bridge Worlds

Fearlessness – Overcoming Dystopian Thoughts

I’ve been involved in overcoming fears and transcending them to be fearless, dealing with ‘others’ in various scenarios, for most of my life. I’ve had three decades of considerable engagement in Ufology, learning to be fearless, long before most of the folks today even had a clue of what was going on. I love the newcomers who’ve had an experience or even a few and want to beat people up sharing them.

Generally early experiencers, and even a lot of materialist/scientist types in the field, have no idea about the depths of consciousness and focus on the details of the events instead. Decades later they’ll have a different perspective for sure. It’s possible I’m stuck inside a paradigm, too, though my profession as a partnering facilitator calls me to always engage multiple POVs simultaneously, aligning them toward meeting project milestones in multi-million dollar contracts.

Continuing to think in the paradigm that creates an ‘us vs. them’ is a choice, right? That makes it subjective. When are we going to pull out heads out of our assess and realize it is our choice to continue to create the paradigm. The thing is that disclosure doesn’t mean a damn thing when it comes to addressing the bigger issues of our planetary civilization.

Considering Our Focus

We are so focused outside that we turn on ourselves and forget the inner needs and requests of our ‘mentors’ to learn how to get along. Claiming the elites want to thwart disclosure seems counter-intuitive, really. They face the same challenges we do as a planetary civilization. They don’t have ways for achieving an exodus to the Moon or Mars.

Here’s a question, though. Are we one? If we are then we can view things from that place of oneness and inquire as to what we might be able to observe as indicators, right? Is that being stuck inside one paradigm? All things considered, it seems to be a quantum view from a unified field perspective. Isn’t that where we’re headed?

There’s a guy that once said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”If you believe I have experience and knowledge, then maybe there is a different reason for my comments than you assumed. To launch into citing global warming, nuclear proliferation and wealth disparities had nothing to do with the comment. It was solely about how we think in fear-based terms and don’t realize it until someone comments on the obvious.

My point was that we need to eliminate the projections of the elites being afraid, or anyone being afraid for that matter. That’s a subjective perspective. If we are going to acknowledge that consciousness has a part in this and that quantum applications apply, then attention, intention and action is absolutely critical – where we put our thoughts is imperative to creating a movement. Starting out with an us vs. them attitude is so last century.

People rise to meet your view of them. Students thought to be gifted (even when they weren’t) performed at gifted levels because the teacher was told they were gifted students. I taught a class of exceptional students (low end of the spectrum) and they performed better than they imagined they could when given a research project. Why can’t we do that with cohorts, peers and others?

Is There a Consistent Message?

Most of the folks in Ufology are still stuck in a fear-based paradigm and tend to war with each other instead of trying to understand each other and grow together. Experiencers are telling others to shift their thinking to fearlessness, even harmony, and offering ways to do so. We’re being nurtured into a new living awareness but assumptions and projections certainly diminish that capacity for change.

Many if not most still point at the old paradigm. Things have changed. Today, or just recently, we’ve had more open talk about the reality than ever before, like Michio Kaku’s statements, let alone his attendance, at the World UFO Congress. Pilots aren’t threatened anymore. Even government officials are speaking up, so why continue to live in the past?

A friend offered this in response to a statement I made, though from the tone of the post this response was an inadvertent truth. “Expanding human consciousness in order to embrace a sense of oneness, a sense of unity between all life in the cosmos, is one a major theme that contact experiencers describe emerging from their interactions with UAP intelligences.” That is my point. I’ve stated that, but apparently that was missed.

Thoughts Regarding Disclosure

Many are pushing an agenda for governmental disclosure that they’ve known of our visitors for some time, and perhaps their purpose. Disclosure, imho, doesn’t have anything to do with the underlying activity or learning how to get along and work together toward collaborative solutions for our People and Planet. Please tell me how it does. I’m certainly open to consideration. Do UAP intelligences seem all that interested in Disclosure? It doesn’t seem so to me.

They continue to interact with those able and willing, right? What’s changed? There has been an ongoing process. It seems that UAPs or UFOs or whatever term we choose to label them with are flying about, attracting attention and having at least some communication with earthlings regarding their purpose here. The overwhelming majority of experiencers state it is a beneficent objective. Help is offered, only if we turn our attention on helping each other.

Is it possible that the elites don’t know anything more than the majority of the experiencers who have regular contact and conversations? Is it possible there are many experiencers who are working on solutions and don’t care to share they are experiencers? Choosing to confront or even discredit my assertions don’t make them false. Most folks are just so uncomfortable that instead of consideration there is immediate denial.

The reason I say disclosure doesn’t mean a damn thing is because the planetary civilization is responsible for their own changes and admitting we’re being visited doesn’t have anything to do with addressing the real issues. It should, in fact, get us to look at how our guests see us. What kind of house are we keeping? Who in Ufology are working with organizations or scientists looking for solutions to global problems? Those are our true compatriots.

In my entire history in this field, and others professionally, I’ve stressed the ‘message’ of needing to learn to work together, even provided platforms for folks to example it. I’ve personally invited dozens to do so on UfologyPress, even set them up with author accounts. Has anyone participated, even if only to show their desire for solidarity? NO. My intent is simply to offer help, to actualize what others are only talking about; the collaboration of cohorts.

It’s possible the I’m not a ‘valued’ figure in Ufology or part of the ‘in’ crowd that has everyone’s attention. I’ve attempted to garner some attention, proposed presentations, and even with personal relationship there has been no acceptance or invitation to be part of the speaker cohort. I do have some tested methods for creating contact without having to find secluded areas to do CE-5 events. A serendipitous event, a request to meditated to some music I helped produce, brought that into reality and further trials demonstrated its validity. 

That being said it is still an intended hopeful to bridge fields, to cross-reference similar understandings and to make sense common to the point of actual collaborative efforts toward harmony among people and planet, a sustainability we can only reach through cooperation. We first need to take a good hard look at our behavior and intentions.

I’m reminded of the Wall coming down and one of my favorite bands of all time celebrating its anniversary with a tribute to both David Bowie and our ability to remove the walls across the gamut of national or international boundaries. It needs fearlessness in doing so, regardless of who is leading the way. Are our intentions to create a new world order of harmony among people and planet? What are we allowing to be distractions to that end?

How Do We Qualify Ufology or Any Information?

LargeIconTransparent

“How do we qualify Ufology information?”

How do we ‘vet’ the information and people providing it so that the quality is there; so that sense is made common?

It would seem that a consistent method for discerning or discovering truth, even if relative, would be available to the intentional seeker. Of course there are varying degrees of the depth of the quest for truth, from cursory to quantum, yet consistency is key. If we accept that we have built-in bullshit meters, then we can at least begin to discover them within our awareness.

What kind of tell-tale signs does ‘truth’ have in this, or any, environment? We pay too much attention to paper and not people, imho. People will show themselves to those who know how to look. When they do, believe them. Not necessarily what they say, but who they are and how they show up authentically. You don’t have to be an expert at micro-expressions. Truth has a ring to it, literally, though it’s an internal ring.

Perhaps truth, vibrationally speaking, is like a covalent bond where electrons are shared in a kind of quantum entanglement. The resonance of truth occurs in the receiver as well as the transmitter whether person, place or thing. Our bodies are both, so it would make sense that the reciprocal resonance is at least felt if not understood. We aren’t accustomed to relying on feelings or sensations, though. That’s where things get a little messy for a time while we explore and practice honing our skills.

There are certain characteristics we can count on, some external tests we can perform initially as we deploy our discernment tools. Until the inner tools are developed, the outer ones are most helpful as one is able to observe without attachment. Like the progress toward self-awareness, we must observe our intentions and distractions. Here’s some considerations from the works of Brent Cunningham on using the external… makes sense common.

POPULAR REASONS WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE
Before we take a look at what I think are the three essential tests for evaluating any truth-claims, let’s briefly look at some popular, but less than stellar reasons often used by people to test whether or not something is true—the claim and then a response:

1. Instinct — “It seems true to me.”
To this statement we must simply ask . . .
. . . Why?  What is guiding one’s instinctual ability to judge between competing truth-claims?
2. Feelings — “I like the feeling I get.” or “It feels right.”
. . . Can feelings be mistaken?
3. Wish fulfillment — “The God that I (want to) believe in would never send someone to hell.”
. . . Maybe not, but the God one wants to believe in may not be the God who actually exists.  We can never determine objective truth simply by what we want to be true.
4. Custom — “This is the way I / my family / my culture has always been.”
. . . Can they be mistaken?  What if one came from a Nazi background?
5. Popularity contest — “Well, ‘everyone’ believes it.”
. . . Again, can ‘everyone’ be wrong?  Counting noses is never a good means of determining truth.
6. Pragmatism — “It works for me, therefore it must be true.”
. . . However, almost anything can ‘work’ for a time.  Truth works overall.  For instance, a belief may ‘work’ at ridding oneself of guilt by denying it rather than absolving it.
7. Significance — “It gives my life meaning.”
. . . Is the meaning simply the result of wish-fulfillment or is it connected with reality?

Obviously, all of the above reasons for believing something to be true seem deficient and not the best tests to determine whether or not a truth-claim is really true (although, #s 6 & 7 do seem to be better candidates that #s 1-5).  Nevertheless, I think there are three criterion for testing truth-claims which, when used together, offer us the best chances of determining true beliefs.  Here they are.

internal coherence chart

1.  Internal Coherence — This is a test for rational consistency in ufology information.  This asks if a belief makes sense?  We need to determine whether beliefs are rationally consistent within themselves and in relation to others beliefs of one’s larger worldview.  Some beliefs are known to be self-referentially inconsistent, or self-defeating.  An example might be the belief that all “knowledge” is scientific knowledge.  This is obviously self-defeating because the belief itself is not a scientific statement.  Therefore, the belief dies by its own standard for knowledge.

Another way a belief can fail this test is when two beliefs are in contradiction with each other, meaning that at least one of the beliefs must be false.  So, we must ask if the beliefs hold together?  For example, if a person is a Naturalist (believing that human life is accidental, random, and without ultimate purpose), he cannot then introduce the belief that we have an objective moral obligation to treat another person justly or with kindness.

external vs internal correspondence

2.  External Correspondence — This test asks if a belief fits the facts of reality in ufology information.   Does it correspond to the real world?  Proposed truth-claims must have explanatory power, or the ability to give account for our experience of the world (whether it be history, science, psychology, human nature, etc.).  For instance, a worldview can be tested by its ability to explain cosmological questions like the origin of the universe; anthropological questions like the existence of minds and free will; moral questions like the existence of evil and our experience with guilt.

Further, the explanatory power of truth-claims should (a) be comprehensive in scope—able to explain more or better than alternative theories; (b) have predictive power—suggesting new evidence and problems; (c) have precision—accounting for more details; (d) be illuminating—integrating otherwise unrelated data; (e) avoid ad hoc hypotheses—functioning only to explain away counter-evidence; (f) be simple—not needlessly multiplying the basic concepts, assumptions, and principles of an explanation.

functional adequacy chart

3.  Functional Adequacy — This tests the livability of a truth-claim as a belief in ufology information.  Is it a viable belief “on the street”?  Does it work in real life?  Some views sound good on paper, but are proven false in the laboratory of life.  Consider an eastern guru who asserts that the physical world is an illusion, yet he still looks both ways before crossing the street.  A person cannot live out such an illusory belief of the world for very long (or he’ll be hit by a bus before long!).  Even more than that, a belief system must integrate one’s life.  It must incorporate and meet the deepest human needs.

SUMMARY
In evaluating the truth or falsity of  propositions/truth-claims/beliefs of ufology information, we must be sure to always look for three things: internal coherence (the logical), external correspondence (the factual), and functional adequacy (the livable).  For a belief to be true it must be meaningful, it must line up with the real world, and it must not only help us survive in daily life, but allow us to flourish.  Consequently, these are also the three areas in which our thinking can and does go wrong: logic, facts, and values.

APPLIED UNDERSTANDING

In the field of Ufology there is so much information that has no solid proof, no tangible substance, other than the ability to string what little facts we have into some kind of logical presentation. We all wish this was different, yet beyond the little credible and tangible material we have, much is still in the subjective realms of experiencers who are often bereft of the cognitive skills to manage, let alone interpret, their ‘contact’ events. 

Truth is discoverable, of course, yet we have to run it through all the tests for coherence, correspondence and adequacy. It has a resonance to it that meets all those standards, a measurable sensation within our array of receptors. Well-developed receptors have already been categorized and labeled as the ‘clair-alls’* of extra-sensory perception. We all have them but few actually use them, probably because of the ‘I want to believe’ factor within Ufology.

Consciousness – being awake and aware of our surroundings, not just sentience, is the prevailing discovery of the time. Consciousness in the sense of a connected awareness and experience of a greater theme in our lives, an experiential reality that bridges quantum (discrete) with the gross (whole). The resonance of both cohesion and coherence is what we can sense with the finer senses within our awareness. It is the challenge of accessing and practicing these senses that is our current challenge.

The constructs of reality also have significance, even if we don’t understand the laws or principles involved. For instance, The Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm is a metaparadigmatic model developed equally by Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close. In essence, it demonstrates that consciousness, space and time are tethered together across 9 dimensions.

It would seem there is a singular or individuated consciousness that is distributed across dimensions yet capable of interacting with and observing each. The following video shares some important information relating to the topic, the process of integrating experiences and the options for consideration. It is an excerpt from an interview with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove on New Thinking Allowed.

*FOR REFERENCE

Clair- Senses – (from: http://www.okinhealth.com/articles/10-clairsenses-intuition-emily-matweow)

Clair is a word describing types of clear sensitivity corresponding to our physical and intuitive senses. Clair begins words that name our intuitive abilities. The following are definitions of the various Clair Senses:

CLAIRCOGNIZANCE – INTUITIVE KNOWLEDGE – Clear knowledge is when a person has psychic knowledge without any physical explanation or reason. Claircognizance includes precognition and retro cognition – knowledge of the future and knowledge of the past. There are no restrictions as to what may be known with clear knowledge.

CLAIRVOYANCE – INTUITIVE VISION – The ability to see objects, actions, or events distant from the present without the use of eyes is called clairvoyance. It transcends time and space and may be a result of what is seen through the third eye (sometimes referred to as our mind’s eye) or the fourth eye.

CLAIRAUDIENCE – INTUITIVE AUDIO or HEARING – This is the ability to perceive sounds or words and extrasensory noise from sources broadcasting from the spiritual or ethereal realm. These tones exist beyond the reach of rational human experience and beyond the limitations of ordinary space and time. For example:

    • – sounds made by a person’s body;
    • – sounds made by living things;
    • – sounds made by nature;
    • – sounds made by man-made things;
    • – sounds made by interactions of the above; and
    • – ethereal sounds like voices of the dead, specters, or mystic music.

CLAIRSENTIENCE – INTUITIVE KNOWING BY FEELING – This refers to a person’s ability to acquire knowledge by feeling. A person who feels the vibration of other people, animals, and places is clairsentient. There are many degrees of clairsentience, ranging from the perception of thoughts and emotions in others to their illnesses and injuries. This ability differs from clairvoyance because the knowledge comes only from feeling in the body.

Clairsentience includes an individual feeling the physical and emotional pain of land where atrocities have happened; jealousy, insecurity, fear, or displeasure in others; or others’ physical pain.

CLAIRSALIENCE – INTUITIVE SMELL = Clairsalience, also known as clairscent or clairscentency, involves smelling a fragrance or odor of a substance, person, place, or animal not in one’s surroundings. These odors are perceived without the use of the physical nose and beyond the limitations of ordinary time and space.

CLAIRTANGENCY INTUITIVE KNOWING by TOUCHING – Clairtangency is psychometry. The clairtangent handles an object or touches something and in doing so knows information about the object or its owner or its history that was not known beforehand. Clairtangency can also apply to touching a living being.

CLAIRTACTION – INTUITIVE TOUCH – I introduce this label for a “new” unnamed Clair. I chose taction because it is an archaic word defined as “the act of touching or making contact.”

Clairtaction is the ability to sense being touched by a spiritual being or entity and the knowing of information about that spirit. Further, it includes a telekinetic-like ability to extend a touch to both physical and etheric entities in such a way that both the recipient and the psychic have awareness of the feeling. This means that the clairtactient may touch a person who is present or remote without physically touching him or her and the person being touched will, if aware enough, be able to identify where he or she is being touched and the nature of the touch.  It also means that the clairtactient can touch something ethereal with both purpose and awareness.

CLAIRGUSTANCE – INTUITIVE TASTE – Clear tasting involves being able to taste something without actually putting it into your mouth. It’s the perfect diet plan. 😉 A person who has clairgustance experiences tastes associated with events or people, memories or sensations often accompanied with clairsalience.

CLAIREMPATHY – INTUITIVE FEELING of EMOTION – Clairempathy is the ability to know people and their energies. A person who has clairempathy psychically experiences the thoughts or attitudes of a person, place, or animal and then feels the associated mental, emotional, physical, and/or spiritual results. The result of this clear empathetic experience may be a very physical response for the psychic in proportion to the psychic’s empathic sensitivity.

CLAIRELOQUENCE – INTUITIVE COMMUNICATING – Claireloquence is a second new Clair. It is the requirement to use precisely the right word or combination of words in order to accomplish a specific objective. Claireloquence connotes that it is the exact meaning of a word that is the result when it may in fact be the performative nature of the word or the exact phonology, or sound system, of the word to encode meaning that is the desired result. I believe that it can be either and both.

CLAIRESSENCE – INTUITIVE EMBODIMENT – Clairessence is a third new Clair I have come to understand and validate. It is the fundamental “Clair of all Clairs.” It is both the easiest and the most difficult to explain, for it is the Clair of Ascension; by the time we fully understand this Clair it will no longer be significant because we will be “it”.

The origin of clairessence is the point of origin of our nature. It is the mathematical and vibrational perfection with which all life was created. It is the ideal we seek to attain in the successful embodiment and integration of all of our senses within our rational and non-rational selves. It is the state we seek to return to – a state without distortion that is more refined, by virtue of experience, than when it was created.

Perhaps this will generate further discussion. We’ve created a forum area for that purpose.

It’s No Wonder We’re a Bit Confused by Intelligence

Intelligence is Over-rated

I’ve been involved with this field for several decades openly and a couple more as an early experiencer of high strangeness. It certainly doesn’t make me an authority, yet I do have some perspectives that few seem to garner as experiencers. I have an above average intelligence, last clocked online at around 151 using my opposite hand just to make it interesting and no rum was involved. My adoptive parents told me early tests were higher and they feared that telling me would turn me into an intellectual snob. Perhaps I have in the minds of some.

Lately there has been yet another flurry of details regarding Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs) and top secret government intelligence programs that have been studying them. Luis Elizondo recently spilled the beans on an obscure government program he was involved in that was tasked with studying the UFO phenomena, AATIP was its acronym. The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was supposedly led by him. He ‘quit’ the Pentagon because it he was frustrated by the cover-up.

Wow, what a news story that nearly every media outlet picked up on and made Luis an icon in Ufology almost instantly. Was he really involved or, like many, chose to sprinkle some truth in a large lie to get attention? Yes, AATIP existed, and it “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena,” Pentagon spokesperson Christopher Sherwood was quoted as saying by Keith Kloor, journalist for The Intercept. However, he added: “Mr. Elizondo had no responsibilities with regard to the AATIP program while he worked in OUSDI [the Office of Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence], up until the time he resigned effective 10/4/2017.”

Intelligence or Insanity?

Luis isn’t the first to muddy the waters in Ufology, though. There is a long history of folks who, with no evidence available other than their word, have forged careers out of elaborate story-telling with details that entice the ears and stimulate the minds of the listeners and readers. Jeffrey Mishlove invited me to discuss the topic in an August 2018 interview he titled ‘The Sociology of Ufology.’ We discussed the tragedy within the field and the travails of those who genuinely seek the truth of whatever is known about our visitors from space.

It seems most of the folks who do have a clue are quiet, reserved and unrecognized by those who find the UFO circuit to provide a means of accolades and notoriety. It’s a small pond in comparison to the larger picture, yet the majority of experiencers are faced with few other opportunities to gather and commune with others of like experiences. The phrase made popular by The X Files, ‘I want to believe,’ now included the necessary discernment skills to weed through the BS. How close are we to really knowing the truth?

In the larger sense, what is the truth about these visitors? We now have irrefutable evidence they exist, specifically military videos as well as officials who’ve had first hand experience, rather sightings, of craft that is obviously not of this world. This evidence has been around for decades in the Ufology circles, yet hadn’t reached the public ears and eyes through major media until this year. Still, there has been evidence that has gone relatively unnoticed from years past. It has been right in front of us, available to find, for decades.

Intelligence of the Visitors

But what of those inside the craft? Who are they and what are they doing? Why are they here and what are their intentions? How do we find out about their intelligence? Do we think the government or major media outlets are going to tells us? Heck, they don’t even know from what many gather. So what is missing? Is there an underground movement, like Dr. Joseph Burkes suggests, that is painstakingly sharing information amongst each other to corroborate and distill general discoveries and potential objectives of these visitors?

It seems that methods of communication vary, mostly telepathic and yet include non-linear and non-local metaphysical-types of temporal distortion or even time-dilation. Events that are perceived as being very physical, when viewed through quantum lenses, are evidence of a multi-dimensional reality much like Neppe and Close describe with their TDVP model of consciousness, time and space being tethered. We have one timeline, yet the experience covers multiple dimensions simultaneously.

Do we need advanced degrees in quantum mechanics to understand it all? Some my think so and certainly there is a lot of math involved in explaining things from a scientific perspective, just like Einstein tried to with his theory of relativity. Jung had many dinners with him over nearly a decade and was greatly influenced by Einstein in the development of his papers on psychiatry. Bertrand Russell was also influenced and noted that to think Einstein’s Theory of Relativity has no philosophical impact was folly. Hans Reichenbach felt that human ‘sensations’ were more, that they were intricately connected to something going on in the universe.

Intelligence within Consciousness

Back to the consciousness that is being expanded by the ‘sensations’ of engagement by non-human intelligence. It spans more than just our visitors engagement of terrestrials. These same sensations are akin to the experience of higher realms of consciousness, often accompanied by a sense of vibration that has been described as both excruciating and/or exhilarating, depending on the frame of mind of the experiencer. So there is a choice involved as to ‘how’ to experience this ‘contact’ as the case may be. If it’s startling with a sense of fear involved, it’s excruciating. On the other hand, if it’s startling with a sense of intrigue or fearlessness, it’s often exhilarating.

Is there a path of logic that fits the scenario of their intent or purpose for engaging humanity in any way? If we looked at things from the perspective of an advanced civilization, what might that be? We tend to see things only through human-centric and fearful eyes, a looming threat. If that were the case, we’d be living in a much different world. Ancient civilizations have learned much, but what? If we are fascinated with the inner-workings of matter and ‘spirit,’ could we posit that this is a general path of evolution and development of intelligence? Where would it take us?

The universe has inherent logic, math and science we have only just begun to understand even in process of entropy to negentropy, from chaos to order. Could it be possible that the communication being delivered through human contacts, interpreted in a variety of ways, is steering us toward recognizing the intricate connections we, in our expanded consciousness, have with everything around us? Consider we’re 99% space, even though we seem physical. What permeates the space we all share? How would we best engage it? Is there a path toward understanding it? What might that be?

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

Sociology of UFOlogy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

More importantly share New Thinking Allowed. Thanks in advance.

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

Formal UFO Disclosure – The Big D coming soon?

Transparency is a buzz word being thrown around without much reality, yet we can speak our feelings and thoughts openly, right? Do we? Usually not, for fear of something. What?

Truth telling begins with an individual effort, an example that invites others to do the same. We haven’t been able to do that, yet. If we do that, then we can create an opening for others to do so. If we aren’t, then we cannot hope for others to do so.

What about beginning with the notion that there are no malevolent beings from elsewhere? If there were, we’d be living differently. We have a tremendous amount of freedom, yet there are some humans that are inhumane. Just like the excuses many religious folk use… the devil made me do it. No, it was a choice you made. Evil aliens are influencing our world? No, it is our choice to allow the conditions to exist.

There really does come a time that we must stand for something. Let’s stand for Truth! Now, what does that really mean? Even though we are taught that within the silence is the voice of being, how often to we go there to really listen? Even thought we know that consciousness is replete with harmony, how often do we strive to be examples of it?

Initial attempts at open contact and a willingness to share technology were met with deceit and reverse engineering for military purposes. If someone is going to show you who they are by such activity, believe them. In the game of life, you get one chance. If you have the keys given to you and screw it up, why should you have another?

We really don’t take things seriously here, except to carve out our own little niches and protect our secrets so we can have a nice life. We believe there is an omnipotent all-loving universe yet we act completely the opposite. Giorgio Piacenza is right, it is all about consciousness. What does that mean, though? Can it be studied empirically? Doubtful, yet it is replete with numbers, patterns and symbols.

Authority and conviction can be felt at the deepest levels of our being, in our gut. This is the center of indigenous consciousness, the intuition or connectedness we can feel with everything. Emerson once wrote, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” The question is, “Why lie?”

‘Are we ready for a formal Big D?’ We can’t handle a little ‘d’ yet, imho.
