“There are great spiritual powers in the universe, but do not confuse them with those who are intervening in your world, or you will make a critical and perhaps fatal error in judgement.” — The New Message on alien contact
For thousands of years humanity has looked up into the heavens and wondered what life was like out there. We now have the scientific sophistication to understand that “the heavens” is actually stars, galaxies, and the universe.
And yet, is it not also true that many of us look to the stars with great hopes and expectations? Are aliens enlightened spiritual beings here to save us from ourselves? Do you believe this?
What do we really know about life in the universe?
It’s a tough question to ask because it highlights our profound ignorance on the topic. This is healthy. If humanity is to survive and thrive in the times to come, it must boldly march into the future with as few assumptions as possible. Wishful thinking is never helpful.
We know that the crafts flying in our skies at night are metallic in nature. They are frequently picked up by radars. While the metal alloy aliens use is far more advanced than what we can now create ourselves, their crafts are not a mystery to us.
We know that aliens have been abducting people against their will for decades. According to the best research on alien abductions, experiments on peoples’ reproductive systems are frequently performed. Many never return.
We know that they have psychic abilities potent enough to make us believe what they want us to believe. They can alter thoughts, feelings, and memories. This is why everything we think we know must be questioned.
What if they’re just like us?
Uncomfortable thought, is it not? Our history is full of examples of technologically superior forces destroying or controlling less advanced cultures. How would we behave if we were the ones visiting their planet?
You might argue that aliens must surely have outgrown conflict amongst themselves if they are able to build crafts to visit other worlds.
There’s an element of truth to that line of thinking. Surely, no species could afford to travel to other stars if they were too busy fighting amongst themselves. What does this say about how they treat others? Nothing at all.
The states within the United States do not fight wars amongst themselves anymore. They are at peace. And yet, how is the United States behaving on the world stage? Why would this be different for alien civilizations?
“They will take advantage of your expectations, your desires, your fantasies and your grievances to establish this position for themselves. Look at the history of intervention in your world. Look how easily native peoples succumbed to the presence of foreign intervention. This must not be your fate.” — Entering the Greater Community
You will know them by their action
How do you really get to know someone? Is it by what they say, or by what they do? How are aliens behaving on this planet?
The answer is: not very well indeed. Enlightened spiritual beings would never abduct people against their wills, alter their memories, and violate them with invasive medical procedures. Enlightened spiritual beings would never manipulate our leaders behind the scenes. Enlightened spiritual beings would never lie to us about why they are here. Of course not.
The universe we live in
It may be difficult to accept, but life in the universe may not be all that different than life on Earth. Sure, the scale is much larger, but the reality of life everywhere is not that different.
Everyone, from the smallest microbe to the largest alien empire, is looking for resources. That’s just a fact of life. Competition arises because resources are finite.
That’s why aliens here now.
They are not evil. They are not demons.
They are not enlightened. They are not angels.
They’re not all that different from us.
And they want what we have.
