Exopolitics Magazine

exopolitics-magazine-issue-1-cover-may-2014-320wIntroducing Exopolitics magazine, a magazine dedicated to the progression of Ufology and the study of UFOs.

Within its pages you will find articles on some of the topics and themes that will come under the lens at the Annual British Exopolitics Expo and the Extraterrestrial Communication Conference in the summer of 2014.

The term “Exopolitics”, meaning the politics of our interactions with others not of this planet, brings with it the challenge of framing it within what is now nearly seven decades of deceit.

This challenge means that the data presented at the Exopolitics Expo is not always necessarily “exopolitical”, nor is it necessarily old-school “ufological”. It is presented however to give a broader and clearer cognisance of our own place in this world.

This is itself a necessary prerequisite for understanding – or rather – comprehending of our interactions or influence with any “others”, terrestrial or otherwise.

That “others” exist is evidenced by meticulous work of researchers stretching over the last seven decades. This evidence indeed goes back far into recorded history and, no doubt, beyond.

What we are experiencing collectively may not be new, throughout history the ruling paradigm of the time – enforced for political or theological purposes – has always come to be challenged and undermined, not necessarily by the beliefs and practices of the outsiders, but by the very nature of reality itself.

If we are in similar times, albeit placed into our particular civilizations circumstances, then we should not be too surprised whe the end result of deception is ultimately revelation.

UFO disclosure is often expressed in terms of the authority that a body has to disclose it. While politics describes the politics of instruments and institutions of our society – rarely, if ever, do they relate to the intent of being of the individual. Whatever the true nature of the UFO phenomenon is, we, as sentient and sovereign human beings, are all the authority that UFO disclosure needs.

Therefore, in that sense, this is disclosure.

UFOlogy 2013… in part

alienanimation19Perspectives vary across the gamut of topics associated with Ufology. The Winter Solstice of 2012 both closed and opened a new cycle of time. I published Zendor the Contrarian on that date as well, symbolic of the cycle in the closing of a major period of my life and the new beginning of life beyond earthly constraint. As I paused to reflect this last year, Ufology seemed to have taken over nearly every aspect of my life at last.

As a young boy of 8 I was profoundly affected by early experiences with what I later found was probably a space ship. I had recurring ‘dreams’ of watching myself get out of bed, climbing out my bedroom window, walking across our neighbors back yard to a fence surrounding a pasture. I’d climb the fence and walk out in to the center of the pasture, only to rise up into an orange cigar-shaped cloud. I’d watch with awe until my body would enter the cloud, then I’d all of a sudden be back in bed in the morning. Sometimes I’d wake up with nose bleeds.

I’d wake up feeling like I had been learning something that was really neat, but I wasn’t sure exactly what. Talking to my parents about it simply wasn’t part of my experience then. I had already developed an ongoing conversation with an intelligence beyond mine, but it felt more like a wise friend. It wasn’t always there, but when I had deep questions it seemed to be available immediately. Now, as a youth with this being my ‘normal’ experience I thought everyone had this companion. Little did I know that I was a bit different. It wasn’t something that came up in conversation, so it was years before I even questioned what it was.

Nearly fifty years later now, I’ve had a chance to review a number of patterns in my life, distill information and come up with a what seems to be sense made common. The last few years on social media platforms and interacting with folks who are less intimidated by cyberspace than face-to-face conversations. Traditionally, conversations about other worlds tended to yield little engagement, let alone bringing up the possibility of ongoing interaction with what were apparently extraterrestrial intelligences, from a different realm at least. They were certainly non-physical and far more advanced than human, at least at the levels I’d found.

Things really changed around the time of the Harmonic Convergence, an event firstjose introduced by Jose Arguelles that was associated with the Mayan Calendar and an event in the cosmos that aligned certain celestial bodies and created a kind of doorway to consciousness beyond planetary. Astrologically it was consistent with the segue between the Piscean and Aquarian ages. The specific time was August 16-17, 1987. My family and I were camping at Dairy Springs Campground next to Mormon Lake. I’d been led there by the companion I mentioned earlier after cruising Sedona looking for a spot. We pulled in just at dark and a space opened up for us while we were driving through it. It was full otherwise.

During that night I opened my eyes upon hearing my companion’s voice. I looked up into the sky to see a formation of points of light that if you were to put a skin over it, there was a buddha-looking figure revealed. As soon as I made that observation I heard many voices as one ask if they could channel energy through my body and into the planet and in return they would answer and questions I had. Well, I didn’t have to think twice. The rest of the night and until dawn I was engaged in the most profound conversation one could imagine and then some. The gist of which, applied to what I can speak about, was the need for awareness of healing the wounds between people and planet.

The story was that in this time during this transition from the old time to the new time, as explained by the voice, humanity was being invited to recognize their heritage and specifically their connection to the cosmos, their celestial neighbors so to speak. There was, in a sense, a family meeting taking place that they hoped would be a beneficial conversation over time. There was concern that people would get lost in the phenomena and not listen with their hearts. You see, there is a difference between listening with head and heart. One is distracted easily with inquiry and phenomena of the outer world and is not capable of hearing the conversations in the more subtle regions of consciousness, which are most important.

2012So twenty five years later we reach the apex of the transition, the Winter Solstice of 2012. Many things were anticipated or presumed would happen, including the ludicrous notion that the world was going to end. In fact, though, the rising of consciousness due to the cosmological and extraterrestrial influence reached critical mass, but nothing in the outer world reflected it yet. It wasn’t supposed to, according to that conversation some years prior. The next 25 years yield the implementation of the awareness garnered from the waxing of consciousness, on the ground it means that people would begin to demonstrate an understanding of harmony among people and planet.

Harmony among people and planet? What does that really mean? Essentially, folks are engaging another level of consciousness, something very subtle yet obviously familiar with a sense of natural order. People, places and things begin to work together in support of human and planetary needs. The transition from industrial and technological advances to environmental and social concerns was barely noticeable at first, starting even before the Harmonic Convergence, but the focus on environmental and humanitarian needs has risen to the point of organizations entirely devoted to providing aid and/or education to afflicted areas of both populations and planetary circumstances.

So here we are beginning the second cycle in the New Time. This last year has brought several new developments to the field of Ufology specifically. The most important from a public perspective was the Citizen Hearings, headed up by the Paradigm Research Group, was a mock congressional inquiry into the need for Disclosure of the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrial engagement by the US government specifically. Credible witnesses came forth for testimony, revealing that a coverup was no longer possible and that information needed to be shared. On another note, the efforts of the Disclosure Movement produced an organizational effort to establish contact groups around the world – ET Let’s Talk was born in October of 2012 and now has thousands of participants around the world.

The path before us is still sketchy at best, with organizational upheavals currently occurring with the Mutual UFO Network, a volunteer organization established in 1969. MUFON’s mission is the scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of Humanity. Research and study tend to keep us distant from the experience as many have found. The methods of communication span crop circles on the ground to telepathy in groups, but the real work is in synthesizing the information and applying it in our world with ‘their’ help. It’s been widely noted that the folks in the know are aware there is no threat from above. The folks attempting to be heard know that there is help from above and ways to apply it down here to restore order – man-made, natural and synthetic.

As one might surmise, there are new ways of doing business in this New Time. Social charity is one of the most obvious and yet subtle influences arising from this shift in consciousness. One of the groups emerging as a leader is Globcal, an international cooperative whose introductory effort is to build a school for an indigenous village in the Amazon that will also serve as an eco-tourism training center. Their efforts are focusing on maintaining the ecosystem in an area of rainforest the size of Finland.

ETs have long tried to get us to recognize the connection between our Mother and our lives; celestial bodies and their inhabitants are symbiotic, but the corporatocracy has effectively garnered the attention of would be consumers instead and disrupted the awareness for a time and season. So many years ago the affects of sending energy through my body and into the planet has caused an often painful awareness of how we are treating each other and our world. We allow our fears to overtake us and become cursory participants in our lives. If there is one thing I’ve learned from my decades of contact, it is to be unafraid of them.

et-disc-binaryAugust, 2002 Crop Circle… The binary disc decoded: “Beware of the bearer’s of gifts and the broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose the deceivers. The conduit is closing.”

“In lak’ech,” as the Mayans say, “I am another you.” The message is finally getting through. Still… painfully slow.

Skeptiko – Science at the Tipping Point

alex-bw-head1Upon researching Alex Tsakaris and Skeptiko, the professionalism of his material and writing is too good to attempt to repackage here. So, in lieu of a rewrite, we’ll proceed with content from Skeptiko’s website and hope Alex doesn’t mind.

The name Skeptiko comes from the ancient Greek philosophy of Skeptikos, and refers to the teachings and the traits of a school of philosophers of whom it was said “asserted nothing but only opined”.

Our Agenda
Follow the data… wherever it leads.  Explore the possibility that the dominant scientific paradigm (i.e. Materialism) might be at a tipping point.  Engage the top thinkers in pointed discussions about the questions that matter most. Treat all guests with respect.

Host Bio: Alex Tsakiris

Alex, host of Skeptiko, is a successful entrepreneur turned science podcaster. In 2007 he founded Skeptiko which has become the #1 podcast covering the science of human consciousness.  Alex has appeared on syndicated radio talk shows both in the US and the UK and is well-know within the parapsychology and near-death experience research communities.

Examples of Engagement (from Skeptiko’s Community files)

In a recent podcast episode of Skeptiko, Dr David Jacobs is quoted as saying:

“This is not consciousness-raising; this is like consciousness denying. This is consciousness-lowering in a sense. So I don’t have any stake in this. It would be wonderful if it is. I think that John Mack was just dead wrong in his analysis of this. In fact, he tried and tried and tried to ram the abduction phenomenon into his preconceived ideas about consciousness and never could. Most people don’t realize that he gave up. He said, “That’s it. I don’t want to do it anymore,” because it could never conform to his ideas. Two years before he died he stopped doing abduction research altogether, closed up his peer group at Harvard, and told Budd Hopkins that maybe he’d been a little too gullible in this situation of abductions. He could never fit it into what he wanted it to be.”

Reply from Will Bueche of JEMI:

Jacobs has made these statements about Dr. John Mack before, notably in a documentary film by David Cherniak, and he remains wrong.

Jacobs’ narrow view of the phenomenon is a holdover from early research which failed to accept that the alien encounter phenomenon involves different levels of reality and is deeply affecting in both positive and negative ways to those who experience it. This difference between Mack and Jacobs is of course widely known, and need not be debated here; Mack wrote expansively of what he learned from experiencers in Passport to the Cosmos, his second book on the subject.

But in particular to your inquiry, Jacobs’ repeated claim that Dr. Mack gave up his interest in alien encounters is simply false. Jacobs made that same claim earlier in the Cherniak documentary.

In fact, Dr. Mack had wrapped up the research branch of his organization (PEER – the Program for Extraordinary Experience Research) a few years before his death, and this was reported in a press release from PEER to MUFON (I wrote that press release myself), but he continued to speak and write on the subject as well as to consult with the experiencers who saw him long-term until his death in 2004.

Changed Priorities Ahead

ChangedPrioritiesXSmallWe’ll shift focus from our contributors for a moment. In a personal post Dr. Joseph Burkes, ufologist from Contact Underground and associate of Kosta Makreas, mentions John Keel and Dr. Jacques Vallee as inspirators for his quest to understand the UFO phenomena. Who has inspired you in your quest?

The original post referenced the challenge of science to deal with UFOs. In main stream scientific realms, the mention of UFOs could be a death knell of your career. It inspired me to offer some additional considerations which also puts me on the fringe of the fringe. I changed my priorities years ago, choosing to view the phenomena through a larger lens.

Changed Priorities Ahead

Keel’s work didn’t put UFOs in a positive light for the most part. It wasn’t obvious whether he spoofed the serious or tried to equate the phenomena with some nefarious supernatural conduct. Vallee, on the other hand, advocated the early extraterrestrial hypothesis and later the interdimensional hypothesis. Both influenced a large number of folks in the Ufology community.

There appears to be a very beneficial engagement that keeps getting swept away, though. It has more to do with Vallee’s theories than those of Keel. The subject is rarely, if ever, addressed in the realms of Ufology. It is like the proverbial hot potato. The field is fringe enough with deception and denial of even the most logical intelligence and/or reports of interaction beyond the physical.

John Keel’s use of ‘ultraterrestrials,’ I sense, may be better termed ‘intraterrestrials’ because of the appearance on inner planes of consciousness more than the physical planes to date. Yes they do have many forms and may indeed adjust their forms to fit our ability to perceive. I have a different perspective because of my personal path, but I wonder nevertheless. Rather than rely on other material, I figure why not engage our own truth-seeking mechanisms that are built into our consciousness? In the case of experience, why not question it differently?

In his recent autobiographical book, Forbidden Science, Vallee summed up his views about the provenance of UFOs, a viewpoint that he’s developed through decades of research: “The UFO Phenomenon exists. It has been with us throughout history. It is physical in nature and it remains unexplained in terms of contemporary science. It represents a level of consciousness that we have not yet recognized, and which is able to manipulate dimensions beyond time and space as we understand them.”

It would seem not only possible but probable that after so long (hundreds if not thousands of years of ‘contact’) that there would be some mixed blood lineages on Earth as well? Heck, there might even be some pure blood lineages. Some already believe this to be true and that they are part a global dominance conspiracy. If they can manipulate space/time, are their humans that can as well?

Considering the number of races visiting, is it possible we could have many lineages whose ‘mission’et-disc-binary is to get along? Could it be that intimate? Would it make sense that intimacy has occurred beyond the stories of abduction and embryo snatching? Are paranormal events initiated by humans an indication of evolution or display of ‘extraterrestrial/intra-terrestrial/ultraterrestrial’ lineage?

Like the ascension to consciousness or self-realization, maybe the process of questioning identity and reality leads us to this truth as well. Those who’ve had close contact and/or conversations with ‘intelligence’ (often non-corporeal yet presenting an off-planet source) tend to lean toward a more beneficial interaction intended to assist humanity in getting their proverbial shit together. Their main concern is for us to learn how to get along and respect our planet.

If one steps back and views the long-term, would this not make sense? It might even explain the phenomena of those who have had ongoing contact, staying out of the limelight and only recently beginning to speak out. If the general level of intelligence is so belligerent toward possibility, how can we possibly more forward with compassionate exploration? It would seem only appropriate to at least consider our potential discoveries.

Certainly the early expierencers/explorers might not be able to articulate their events eloquently, but might have sounded like flower children in their referencing the out-of-this-world discoveries. Imagine experiencing something wonderful; out of the boundaries of any known phenomena yet beneficent in nature. How might you interpret and report such an event?

Not too many folks would give you the time of day, believing instead that you have ingested something or were just ‘out there’ by psychological default. In the cold hard fact world, the warm fuzzy subjective experience would go unnoticed and/or be trivialized for some time, imho. Science has no way of objectifying subjective reality.. or do they? Maybe that’s where Valle and Keel began.

It is that consciousness that I believe is present in humans, at least to some degree, and those who are having ongoing contact experiences are part of that world-bridging effort. Because it is within our evolving consciousness, it is something that has to be discovered, like asking the right questions. If one is given answers to questions unasked, the knowledge falls on deaf ears.
