One World in a New World with Stephen Bassett – Paradigm Research Group

One World in a New World with Stephen Bassett – Paradigm Research Group

Do you believe we’re being visited by UFOs? Steve has been a lobbyist for government disclosure of the UFO presence in our skies around the world. His story doesn’t particularly have a spiritual awakening, though his passion for this topic began as a young boy and continues.

His interest in science and sci-fi, especially with aliens, prompted a deeper exploration into the UFO phenomena. As he matured, even as a teen, he knew the reports of UFOs and interviews of witnesses clearly indicated an extraterrestrial presence. Surprisingly, he’s never had a direct experience with a UFO in his 30+ years of advocating disclosure.

Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man on the moon, was a speaker at an event Zen managed in Phoenix a couple of decades ago. Edgar revealed that on their way to the surface of the moon in the Lunar Excursion Module, a metallic silver cylinder was spiraling around the LEM nearly all way down to the surface. He knew it was nothing from Earth and wondered how long the inhabitants controlling it had been on the Moon.

Considerations and Speculations

Steve goes on to talk about the world-wide phenomena of the disc-shaped craft showing up at ICBM sites and literally shutting off the power to everything. He and many others are still curious as to why they did that. Speculation might lean toward sending a message that they were protecting people of Earth from themselves. We don’t know.

Will our government disclose information about the UFO presence? Steve mentions presidential candidates, advisors and reporters that had chronicled their involvement in over 400 articles written around the world at the time.

Imagine the challenge across agencies in the government that held information, such as the Military Industrial Complex, that were the reason for the ‘truth embargo’ and ‘protectors’ of the nation. Alas, the plans were thwarted as the candidate wasn’t elected.

Steve shares much more of his longstanding investigation and tumultuous journey to bring the UFO mystery to light, from National Press Conferences to Congressional Hearings.

* Charol Messenger – award winning author of many books – channeling Ascended Masters
* Marianna Leah – Sacred Feminine Channel, Intuitive Healer & host on Esoteric Guides NYC
* Joseph Jacques – Co-founder of Harmonic Humanity will be available to talk personally with attendees too.

Along with the Zoom experience comes the virtual world and avatars within the Making Contact Campus and the various places like the Observation Deck, Paul T. Hellyer Auditorium, Experiencer Room and more, though let’s not forget a beach party, too, with DJs and dance tunes.

The virtual experience on The Observation Deck will include:

* viewing the 4 hour zoom event in a theatre with a virtual audience that you can interact with
* additional presentations 2 hours before and another 2 hours after the 4 hour main event.
* personal interaction, and information, with representatives of homeless organizations
* mingling in shared spaces – live conversations
* discussion groups after the main show with special guests
* video viewings in various rooms – good Christmas watching for the whole family

Your curator is also speaking later in the event, on the topic of ‘The Life of an Experiencer’ with a Q&A session afterward for your burning questions. Event costs range from $5 to $10 US, though the payment page is set up in AUD, since the event was created in Australia.

You can register here.

Look forward to seeing some of you there and wishing you all a Happy Holiday Season!

Kosta Makreas – Founder, ET Let’s Talk & The People’s Disclosure Movement

Kosta Makreas – Founder, ET Let’s Talk & The People’s Disclosure Movement

interviewed by your curator, Zen Benefiel for One World in a New World

And now for something completely different… with an invitation to engage Star Family visitors further through ET Let’s Talk.

We’ve been diving deep into the lives of those in the trenches in business, organizational development and systems transformation in a variety of ways. This conversation moves to a whole different world of experience, invitation and planetary advancement.

Kosta Makreas brings a new dimension to the conversations, perhaps in some ways apocalyptic to our audience, from having a professional career in software engineering to interacting with Star People. ET Let’s Talk is a collection of people from around the world, some hosting CE-5 events, that gather for the specific purpose of human initiated contact.

As two Hoosiers reuniting, we launch into some familiar territory for us. Both of us have been active in Ufology for decades, though Kosta has taken a front seat, so to speak, with his efforts to build, organize and support a vast network of folks who want to make contact with Star People, which is their preferred nomenclature according to Kosta.

What may seem odd or peculiar or even scary to some has been lifelong experiences for others. Kosta shares how his interest began as a youth and the challenges he faced growing up in a period when it wasn’t too popular to talk about engaging aliens, let alone calling them Star People. His shares a synchronistic experience his wife had while he was away on a CE-5 week-long campout.

If you haven’t heard the term, CE-5 refers to human initiated contact with Star People. Kosta’s work began with Steven Greer and quickly evolved to developing contact groups around the world on his own. ET Let’s Talk and The People’s Disclosure Movement has been growing for several years now.

Our chat moves into discussing the People’s Disclosure Movement, taking the notion of disclosure and putting it in the hands of the people instead of governments that have not been able to announce their knowledge.

Research and study is always necessary, and Kosta mentions a study that includes over 4,000 accounts from around the world. It was performed by an organization called FREE, under the title of Beyond UFOs – The Science of Consciousness and Contact with Non Human Intelligence.

We discuss Kosta’s work with ET Let’s Talk (https://etletstalk.com) and the numbers of people involved. You might be surprise, though perhaps not.

If your curiosity is sparked, you’ll enjoy the conversation for sure. We only scratch the surface of the work and how it affects those involved. For decades it wasn’t popular to speak up or out about this topic and now folks seem to be flocking toward their own discovery and engagement.

The Underwhelming UAP Report that Deepens the Mystery

RE: UAP Report Nonsence (all 9 pages)

Shared this because it coincides with the UAP nonsense just released by our illustrious purveyors of preposterous notions… though they may actually be true.

Not hard to predict the cluelessness when history repeats itself in the fractals of contrived information and real absence of actual material.

Communications (originally established in the 1950s) were cut off when the MIC proved to be untrustworthy.

Not sure they are lying, as many believe… the MIC don’t have a clue because they’re going at [it] the wrong way. They see [them] as separate and not a part of the natural world, like us. Truly the point of perspection (inner/outer) cannot see what it has not experienced.

The sense of threat needs to go away in order to see them clearer and understand their technology… hundreds if not thousands of years ahead of our own. How could we possibly know anything without the proper tools to understand?

Space… the final frontier… Well, here’s a crash course on the rectilinear concept. We’ve got to begin to understand where we are in the scheme of things… our reality. Conceive…. consider… conceptualize.

___________________________________ ~ from The New Science (memoirs of Wilbert Smith – Project Magnet)

As a first consideration let us consider what space appears to be to us. We have no doubts about its volumetric nature although we have no senses by which we can observe this condition. We conclude that space is volumetric by the nature of things which we find in it. What would it be like if everything were removed from space? Would we even have space?

Can we conceive of a space structure completely devoid of matter or energy in any form; real empty space? What would such space be like? If we were disembodied entities located in such a space, how could we identify our position or describe where or how we were? What sort of yardstick could we use? These and many more similar questions must be faced squarely by those seeking understanding.

When one has satisfied himself by actually doing it that he can conceive of space with absolutely nothing in it, and is not too terrified of his creation, he is then in a position to take the next step, namely to find his way about in it. An arbitrary decision can be made to refer all concepts to where the investigator conceives himself to be, thereby establishing a point. [This ‘point,’ literally, is critical for the observation of awareness and reality, the I/eye of our being.]

He can next conceive of an adjacent point, thereby establishing a line. By turning in various directions he can establish the concepts of surfaces and volumes. But no matter what he does after that, the investigator cannot add more concepts to the space itself. He therefore concludes that what he instinctively felt soon after he first conceived the empty space, that it was volumetric, and nothing more, is correct.

The foregoing is actually an exercise in mental gymnastics, but as physical exercise is necessary for body-building, so are these exercises necessary for the building of understanding. It is absolutely necessary to satisfy oneself on these points before going on to the next concept.

The next step is to conceive of a way of getting about in this empty space, and to realize that one has done so when the operation is complete. The concept of an adjacent position, or point, is a good approach, and here again the operation becomes one of mental gymnastics, and a lot of manipulation and practice is necessary to get the feel of the situation.

As one gains in understanding of the properties of space, the various geometries become evident, and it becomes increasingly obvious that a wide variety can be made to work, if certain basic parameters are admitted. However, since our concern is primarily with our space and our universe, we will want to select the geometry that best fits our experience.

Ordinary Euclidean or rectilinear geometry is quite familiar and comprehensible to us, and we can understand easily how it can be applied to space as we conceive it. We can understand a sideways, forwards-backwards, up-down concept, or expressed mathematically, and x, y and z axis. Also, we experience no great difficulty in conceiving of these three axes as converging at right angles to a single point and extending outward therefrom to enormous distances. We can even introduce the idea of infinity in any direction as being somewhat beyond the farthest distance in which we have any interest.

In our rectilinear concept we can conceive of such a thing as a straight line, although we might be hard put to define it, since the concept is in itself axiomatic. However, if we understand what a straight line actually is in our concept and we are sure that others with whom we communicate also have the same understanding, we can use it as a real datum point in our appreciation of our universe. This point is of particular significance in what is to follow, as it is one of the few solid anchors we have on which to fasten our understanding. Let us never lose sight of this concept of a straight line, as entirely distinct from the behavior of matter or energy.

Our rectilinear concept at once validates our Euclidean geometry. Furthermore, it removes any limitations which might be imposed on it by either great or small distances. It provides us with a clear-cut framework within which we can think our way about in space. We should satisfy ourselves that this concept actually is a necessary and sufficient condition for this purpose, although we remember that its selection was arbitrary and that other geometries probably would work just as well.

However, since we have made our decision to use the rectilinear concept, we must be prepared to stick to our decision unless and until proved wrong. As a matter of fact, any geometry can be used, and will work within the limiting parameters of its definitions. It is only when extended beyond these limits that corrections become necessary, but even with the corrections the geometry itself does not become invalid, only the things we expect it to do.

Another older resource from an interview with George Van Tassel

What we still have yet to reveal within ourselves is the notion that what has been stated in both scientific and spiritual perspectives, albeit slightly differently, is that all things are connected. We’d be fools to ignore the evidence of experiencers and their awareness that indeed this is so. We consider categorization and nomenclature as a kind of separation into different aspects of reality and yet modern science is proving that this practice is simply folly.

For example, there are many resources that essentially cross-reference the reality of interconnectedness. Neppe and Close posit that consciousness, space and time are tethered across nine dimensions; Mironova (Russian Academenian) offers a dissertation on recent scientific discoveries on the mutations of our specie. William Swygard discovered a method to explore other-dimensional consciousness across nine planes (perhaps a direct experience of the TDVP model of Neppe and Close.

How we explore these realms will determine the revealing of their congruence and continuity with what the ancient calendars have offered regarding the period of time we are currently in, the transition between ages, from the Piscean (patriarchal) to the Aquarian (matriarchal) and another admonition Smith shares from his conversations with ‘people from elsewhere’ – that we ought to direct our questions to Mother Earth. The Gaia Hypothesis has been around for a while now, though we haven’t really considered the implication of being able to communicate directly with her. It’s a concept far too fringy for the fray…

Challenges of Experience and Inquiry with UFOs

Background Brief – Challenges 

Challenges of being both an experiencer and behind the scenes researcher over my lifetime, with events I’m challenged with and find hard to believe, yet I was part of it, and so an experience system began replacing beliefs that no longer fit. I write about them and, to date, have never been taken seriously by the ‘experts’ in ufology.

I totally get why folks remain aloof and apart from the madding crowd. It’s often disappointing and discouraging to witness the inability of folks to be open-minded or advance their own intelligence base. There’s a new living awareness available to those who emerge fearlessly from the challenges of fallacious narratives.

Most of my life (40+ years) I’ve been an outlier because of my experience and willingness to be vulnerable enough to share. Risking revealing a life of integrative activity still brings concern, yet if I don’t then I’m not walking my talk and am no use to anyone. With a robust professional career and successful transformational coaching practice I have to be an example of what I hope to inspire in clients and personal relationships – a new view of quantum entanglement.

I’ve been blessed to have some conversations that matter with others over the years, perhaps offering some corroboration and/or inspiration and guidance for others on the path who are struggling with the notion of being a co-creator in the process of the great awakening we’re experiencing at this time. We’ve been anticipating it, though participation in practical and pragmatic ways has been somewhat illusive. Articulating the understanding has been a challenge, though I’ve had a lot of fun developing it. Here’s a sampling: UfologyPress.com/curator-interviews if interested.

Challenges… And then there are others

jim diletosso, zen benefielOthers have intimate encounters, conversations about the nature of the ‘people from elsewhere’ and their reasons for making a larger showing of UAP events. They aren’t to create military concern as they are no threat. Their messages are about the care and concern for humanity and our Mother Earth. Our level of thinking cannot fathom such advanced races that are aware and engage universal laws (physics we do not understand).

It’s been a challenge in the experience addressing hoaxers that seem to be of two categories – disinformation and attention seekers. Because of our lack of critical thinking skills, these folks run amuck and distract the gullible and naïve who are simply afraid of anything they cannot explain or want to believe in sci-fi fantasy beyond any technology we actually have to date. I’ve experienced bi-location and teleportation so I know they are possible, yet they are driven by psycho-spiritual technology, not material technology as some report.

The folks at Village Labs in Tempe, AZ, Jim Diletosso and Michael Tanner (RIP), held interviews with the witnesses of the Phoenix Lights in 1997. Lynne Kitei used many of those witnesses for her film. The challenges of Francis Emma Barwood, who pushed the investigation with the City of Phoenix and Fife Symington, I sure were daunting. She had been a guest on my show prior to the event and remained at least an acquaintance, if not friend over the years. We heard dozens of accounts of the event, revealing not one, two craft that had made their way down from the north along I-17 and Scottsdale Road. The second one never gets mentioned.

I’d known Jim for almost a decade prior and, available and curious as I was, I spent a lot of time at Village Labs. Jim was also a go-to-guy for photo and video analysis and had appeared on TV shows. I got to know a lot of folks from around the world as a result. Some seemed legit while others seemed more interested in fame and fortune. Tim Beckley held the New Age and Alien Agenda expos in the early 90s in Phoenix, which brought folks like Darrel Sims, who I had some heated conversations with because of his position on abductions.

Jim recommended me to the Axiom Group (promoters) as the event manager for the Prophets Conference, which gave me the opportunity to have even more conversations with those supposedly in the know. Challenges for logistical needs were few, as I had contacts from other events. One such opportunity with Dr. Edgar Mitchell involved several conversations about our shared interest and life events. He confided in me about their encounter with a metallic silver cylinder spiraling around the LEM on the descent to the surface of the Moon. He also asked me not to share it until after his death, for obvious reasons, and I kept my promise.

Pyramidal Pundits Proffering Proof

One of the newcomers who co-founded FREE and shared a video as proof that Edgar lent his name to the group, which seemed more like informing him of his intentions and Edgar just acquiescing out of politeness, took a personal stance and called me out as a liar because Edgar had not told him about the event. This same individual had stories of incredulous events he expected everyone to believe, and that he’d had an ‘awakening’ around 2012 that led him to his interest.

I’d made the effort to introduce him to many at his first IUFOC in 2015, informed Jeff Mishlove of FREE during my interview and did a lot of promotion for the organization and got repaid with self-righteous indignation. As if there were some fear of some kind, or perhaps envy, the distance turned into outright dismissal and rejection from the group he formed on Facebook. I find that typical of folks who reveal themselves over time to be less than ethical and perhaps have a moral compass that’s slightly off.

Speaking of Jeff Mishlove and the challenges of Earth, he mentioned one of his cohorts, who communicates with Non-Human Intelligence regularly, that ‘they’ see Earth as a series of pyramidal structures with alpha males at the top vying for dominance over people and planet while competing for territory. Our current situation with the pandemic is yet another example of the fallacious attempts to control populations, only it’s at a global scale now. This, too, shall pass.

I don’t have any investment in being known or having a following or selling books or any of the nonsense that seems to accompany those who want to dominate the field, let alone promote openness toward the subject beyond their passion for disclosure. We know they are there – now what? What’s next? Are we even thinking about it? Seems we cannot think our way through a system built on vibration – even the communication methods are frequency-based, so we need to sense the scene, right?

Challenge: How Can We Emerge?

IMHO, the subject is far beyond sightings and encounters. We generally only take a cursory view, using faulty belief systems as our guide, and never explore the depths of the interdimensional interactions these intelligences and craft exhibit. If I recall some of what I’ve heard about the 1950s events, which Smith validates ‘they’ let governments know they were here, is that appearances and agreements were made initially with world governments. Those agreements were violated across the board… technology turned into weaponry… and so the withdrawal of direct contact and Plan B began… the systematic personal contact agenda and the elevation of consciousness from a grass roots level, so to speak.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with Romanek got his well-deserved reward. I’d had several conversations with him, with little eye contact and avoidance of direct questions that would have offered some validation to his experience. I determined then it was all a hoax and his unsuspecting wife got caught in the middle of it. The political correctness and lack of critical questions and conversations seem to hinder our progress as well. Folks who get flustered with critical questions tend to reveal their stories as being concoctions rather than reality. We should love critical thinking questions developed with the intention of sincere inquiry.

Luis spoke of the nature of the military interest in his 60 Minutes interview – “What is it? What is its intentions? What are its capabilities?” Those are great questions, yet they are still at a cursory level, imho, and the real challenges aren’t being addressed. Have interactions for a lifetime, those questions seem like more disinformation. We know what they are, were informed of their intentions back in the 1950s, and have reverse-engineered at least some technology from downed craft so we know some capabilities.

What we don’t know is the level of consciousness they possess and the understanding of how they can manipulate reality so easily. It appears that as one studies and/or practices deep spiritual practices, some of the answers begin to bubble up through experience rather than the intellectual investigation. Our ability to co-create (manipulate reality) emerges as well. It seems preposterous to consider ‘them’ a threat, which fuels that polarity between Elizondo and Greer.

Coming of Age – Challenges of Awareness

We all have the ability of ‘sensing’ and using that ‘sense’ to determine the resonance of virtually any soliloquy or conversational bits of data or even media. Instead of drilling down through the information and why we sense certain things, we dismiss our feelings and acquiesce to some nebulous notions presented by others as being ‘true’ when, in fact, it is not. We hear, “I believe you believe that it is true for you, but I’m not buying it.” Those statements usually come from ignorance and an unwillingness to explore an unknown with the curiosity of a child free of belief systems or preconceptions.

What is obvious to the most casual observer willing to step back and view a larger picture is that the communication from ‘elsewhere’ is nearly identical to the instruction of spiritual development that’s been around for millennia. Makes one wonder where those instructions came from in the first place. Seems the global or universal view is congruent, so the only threat is of belief systems crumbling as we become more aware of the need for harmony with self, others and Nature. It’s a natural evolutionary process for planetary civilizations.
