To extraterrestrials, who comprise the vast majority of intelligent life in this universe, you are an alien. Humans are but one kind in a huge catalogue of others. Some alien populations may have compiled catalogues of millions of intelligent species, conceivably more. If and when aliens begin (or began) to electronically/electrogravitically copy other aliens’ catalogues of the sort, the number of entries could increase exponentially.
Depending on the nature of the overlap between galaxies, there could easily be catalogues of trillions of species, or more. In more advanced circles, there could be a shared kind of Universal Report, a complex news briefing that spans incredible distances and puts our national broadcasts to shame. Rather than dwell upon the affairs of one’s own small planet, such aliens could check on the science and doings of other systems, ranging freely and diversely.
Aliens have specifically stated that faster-than-light communications are a given among more advanced societies. Nearly instantaneous capacities may be possible, as one native group of Milky Way aliens reported, once electrogravity towers have been installed and correlated to form a widespread network. Towers use the iron core of a planet as a capacitor, which stores up and releases charge (or electrogravity) without need for wires. There may also be non-tower alternatives. *Thus far, no aliens have reported the ability to “physically” travel great distances, i.e. hundreds of light years, instantaneously.
The fastest published report on the subject was logged by Los Angeles Times journalist Phillip Krapf, who says that the Verdants, a group of aliens with whom he has interacted, can travel at a rate that is one million times the speed of light, using what they call “flicker drive” (a kind of electrogravity, apparently). Readers may be encouraged to note that the aliens Krapf describes say that they’re only 229 million years more advanced, technologically, than are humans. Older, more advanced alien populations may be much more capable.
Although, for fairly obvious reasons, most of the aliens reportedly catalogued by human authorities stand upright and walk on two feet, some look very different than a human. Brain appears to have triumphed over brawn—in every case. Cranial capacity has been expanded and body mass reduced, for ecological reasons. So, generally speaking, technologically advanced aliens will likely have large heads and relatively efficient bodies. Such appearances, along with different skin colors and body heights can be startling to a human, at least initially.
On larger planets with heavy gravity, stocky bodies may endure, i.e. Stefan Denaerde’s remarkable report about Iarga—just 10 light years from Earth.
It helps to remember that we probably look as weird to them as they do to us—with one minor exception. When they visit here, they clearly know that our kind exists. They’ve studied humans and human history. We’re an open book, as far as they’re concerned. Most of our data, all of our books going to press and all of our electronic communications can be lifted, using electrogravity, and recorded. Think in terms of Moore’s law (new computers double their capacity every 18-24 months).
By now, aliens are able to store the sum total of human electronic data, then file and correlate it compactly.
As other authors have suggested, we should be careful not to generalize about all aliens. There is great diversity among off-world life forms. Some may be notably more advanced than others, yet humans (and aliens) must forever be studied and vigilant in their assessment of any given world, or combination of worlds. Aliens, too, can make mistakes.
As one might expect, time and time again, aliens have proven vulnerable to psychological error. They make very human-seeming errors. Some humans will be disappointed to learn about certain off-world regimes that control their populations through fear and other, subtler kinds of intimidation. In some cases, rather than being corrected over time, specious impulses have been cultivated, if not institutionalized within a limited number of overgrown alien populations—one of which (Verdants—from another galaxy) literally describes itself as “colonizers.”
However, in each case of the sort, finer-minded independent civilizations grow up in surrounding systems and offer a critique of such offenders. Clearly, humans can choose to emulate a better strategy.
It helps to remember that, in some multi-galactic neighborhoods, there may be a kind of bully, a population that’s both feared and organized against—due to the given population’s excesses. Some populations of the sort may have developed in relative isolation or amid a heated galactic competition, a competition that, in the bully’s case, results in a repressive bureaucracy—for defensive reasons.
Sadly, to say, some such bureaucracies have reportedly lingered, long after the perceived external threat abated. According to various aliens’ reports, the end result can be a subtly disguised bias against other species, a presumption of superiority; an epic kind of wastefulness.
What begins as a defensive mobilization ends up as a self-serving apparatus intended to boost the given population’s lifestyle above and beyond that of all local competitors.
This puts the burden of correction on the surrounding populations, who, in turn, must waste precious resources in a concerted attempt to either ward off, or correct the burgeoning offender.
Ultimately, inter-galactic agreements must arise in order to do so, i.e. on a galaxy supercluster level (thousands of galaxies). Even then, there can be obstacles: hyper-advanced regimes on a larger scale that can tend toward repression of individual sensitivities and seek to control populations of lesser duration. Among the more aged aliens in such regimes’ security services (some of whom can be thousands of years old, if not more, hence extremely de-sensitized) the need to control others can be destructive and rigidly compulsive in character.
We need to be careful with regimes that tend to run on autopilot due to advanced, albeit subtly-mechanized idealizations of thought. Sometimes, due to age and mind-numbing experiences, they seem to run out of creative impulses and lapse into defensiveness, coupled with reflexive observation.
Based upon what we now know, we can expect to see neighborhoods that, at times, are stressed in ways that literally tax the human imagination. For example, the Milky Way lies just along the outer fringe of the Virgo supercluster of galaxies.
Virgo contains about 2000 galaxies, compared to the 3 spiral galaxies (plus 14 smaller irregulars and 17 yet smaller ellipticals) in the Milky Way’s local group of galaxies.
Smack in the middle of the Virgo supercluster (not a large supercluster—as superclusters go) is the galaxy M-87 (click below image), a giant elliptical galaxy containing about 1.3 trillion suns’ worth of mass. The Milky Way is less than one-fifth as big, in comparison.
Over time, M-87 has apparently gobbled up smaller galaxies, causing a bizarrely destructive “hyper-nova” explosion whenever M-87’s massive central black hole swallowed a smaller galaxy’s central black hole.
So, in the center of Virgo is a giant galaxy (M-87) that is both too hot, and too dangerous to support all of the populations of the galaxies that M-87 ate, so to speak.
Surrounding galaxies would be expected to accommodate a number of refugees, to share the burden more widely.
Also within Virgo, i.e. running along what is called the Markarian Chain of galaxies (click below image) are numerous other large ellipticals that would, by now, have required a similar cooperation.
As a result, we can reasonably predict that galaxy superclusters are:
- either intense war zones, which would be both undesirable and ecologically unsustainable (hence considerably less likely over time),
- or we can predict that they begin to organize into a greater kind of commonality, which, although stressed at times, more accurately reflects the larger universal ecology for one obvious reason: most of the galaxies in our universe are found in galaxy superclusters.
Alien sources say that large-scale cooperation is the norm and that superclusters are carefully monitored as to ecological outcomes.
Given the prohibitive energy and environmental costs of war involving advanced alien technologies, full-scale conflict is reportedly rare. However, disputes can arise, which presumably deepens the movement toward larger, collective alternatives and legal arrangements.
In the end, the social prism through which humans view themselves will affect the way that humans both judge, and prepare to interact with off-world populations. But what about the more capable alien judgment of humans, in return? If humans try to weaponize interstellar space in order leap out and grab the planets of neighboring star systems, humans can expect to either suffer their own internal contradictions, or possibly perish prematurely due to elite-driven environmental failures, some of which could involve the misuse of electrogravity. In such a scenario, aliens would be less likely to advise on how to use electrogravity correctly.
Further dangers lie in the submergence of a US black budget regime from public view. By pretending that it can play both good cop (by interacting with aliens in an exclusively military-industrial fashion), and, at the same time, play bad cop (by casually shooting down numerous alien craft in order to scavenge them), it could endanger our survival as a planet.
When a relatively backward human structure of the sort gets its hands on technology that alien neighbors cannot trust will be used safely, a basic judgment is in order:
Should the planet be gently revolutionized, or should it be “allowed” to perish—before it becomes too dangerous?
In later pages, the topic will be discussed in specific detail, including direct quotes by various aliens.
The main point to be conveyed at this juncture is that aliens are fallible; they make mistakes.
The fact will be denied by those who insist that every interaction with off-world visitors is a spiritual awakening, a cosmic kind of homecoming. I’ve argued with otherwise intelligent adults who insist that those seemingly good “gray” aliens don’t do harmful abductions, they don’t collude with black budget elements in the USA, they aren’t part of an attempt to play both sides of the human fence off of each other for their federation’s political and resource purposes.
I’ve debated one well-educated researcher (R.B. – Richard Boylan?) who, despite noting missing time after which he found nasal implants and newly formed scoop marks in his flesh (the result of an abduction), insists that gray-related “federation” aliens have nothing to do with “harmful” abductions and cattle mutilations.
* He also said that because such aliens manipulated our genes, they “own” us, in part, and have a right to manipulate us.
Meanwhile, a growing number of qualified researchers, including the late Dr. John Mack, professor of psychiatry at Harvard University, concluded that such aliens appear to be engaged in some sort of breeding program, an attempt to develop human-alien hybrids for yet-unspecified reasons.
* The statements above aren’t intended to demonize grays. Personally, I feel sympathy for them. The loss of their original home planet may have occurred under circumstances that offer humans a vital lesson in off-world political ecology.
