In a highly symbolic speech aboard the US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln on May 2, President George Bush declared that large scale military hostilities in Iraq were over. Using the inherent symbolism of his historic predecessor who used military force to bring liberty to America's slave population, Bush was signaling that US military intervention had similarly brought liberty to Iraq's oppressed population. Contrary to widespread predictions of regional upheaval, the US had succeeded in its bold military intervention against the former regime of Saddam Hussein. Aside from the continuing moral and political questions raised by US military intervention in Iraq without broad global consensus, a key question is what relevance such intervention has from the perspective of the presence of extraterrestrial (ET) races on Earth? If there is a universal law of reciprocity' governing the use of military force that parallels Isaac Newton's third law of motion' where all force has an equal and opposite reaction, could ET intervention be more likely in human affairs now that US has taken such action? Could intervention by ET races on Earth occur for similar reasons given to justify US intervention in Iraq? What would be the implications for human sovereignty and independence were such intervention to take place?
There are many challenges that global humanity must face in responding to the possible intervention of ETs in human affairs if humanity is to maintain its sovereignty and independence. Foremost among these is identifying the difference between ET races which directly intervene in human affairs without explicit authorization or permission from humans on an individual and/or collective basis, and those races which adopt a non-interventionary role when such permission is not forthcoming. While ascribing moral categories solely on the interventionary policy of ET races is a not a sufficient condition for understanding the various agenda of ETs, it does serve as a necessary condition for helping distinguish between ET races who have a long term goal of promoting human sovereignty and independence, and those ET's whose goal is undermining these fundamental principles. As a general rule, ET races that directly intervene in human affairs, without explicit permission to do so from individuals and governments, do not serve humanity's best interests in terms of human sovereignty and independence. Conversely, a second rule is that those races that only intervene in human affairs when explicit permission has been given, behave in a way that is consistent with humanity's best interest in terms of human sovereignty and independence
Keeping the above general rules in mind, it is possible to now understand the primary dangers that confront humanity in maintaining its sovereignty and independence in responding to the intervention of technologically advanced ET races. The first danger' is the perception fostered by those that believe that humanity's best hope in maintaining sovereignty and independence is through a rapid technological revolution in the military sector. The second danger' is the belief that ET's that intervene during a possible global environmental, economic and/or political disaster are the saviors of humanity and play a role that can be explained in Christian religious terminology as the Second Coming'. The crux of both of these dangers is that global humanity on an individual and collective basis gives its sovereignty and independence' away to those that control military technology used as the prime instrument of individual or collective defense; or to benevolent' ETs who intervene in time to save global humanity from some impending global crisis engineered by corrupt or militaristic human/ET groups.
Danger Posed by a Military Response to ET Intervention
The first danger arises from the strength of the military industrial complex in countries such as the US and the effect on the psychological disposition of Americans to accept the use of military force in resolving political problems. President Dwight Eisenhower who presided during the formation of many clandestine US government organizations that were set up to respond to increasing incidents of ET intervention in human affairs, became alarmed at the growing power of these organizations and the symbiotic relationship between large US corporations and the military. In his famous departing speech of 1961, he directly mentioned the power of the military industrial complex and the need to be wary of the intertwined relationships between corporations and the military in producing advanced military technology. The underlying idea here is that such organizations foster a militarized response to the ET presence and incidents of ET intervention through producing advanced weaponry based on captured' or traded' ET technology that can respond to the ET presence in a way that preserves humanity's sovereignty and independence.
Leading policy makers in the various organizations that support a military response to ET intervention wish to avoid a repeat of the calamity that befell the indigenous civilization of the America's which were destroyed by the technologically more advanced, though numerically small, Spanish invasion. Those supporting a military response to the ET presence generally and ET intervention in particular, have in mind a policy similar to the Meiji restoration of Japan where in a short few decades Japan responded to the presence of more technologically advanced European nations by rapidly industrializing its military, technological and political sectors to the extent that it transformed itself from a weak feudal state characterized by competing warlords to a centralized dynastic kingdom under the Meiji Emperors. The Meiji Restoration led to the most remarkable industrialization effort ever witnessed and was so rapid and far reaching in scope that Japan was in a few short decades able to defeat a major European power, Russia, during the 1905 Russo-Japanese war. More stupendous was Japan's military performance during the Second World War where it came very close to defeating the US and its allied forces in the Pacific. What distinguished the Meiji Restoration as an example of a less developed civilization responding to the presence and intervention of a more advanced' civilization was the ability of the Japanese to quickly unify in response to the threat posed by colonial Europe and the US, as opposed to the disunity that characterized the indigenous kingdoms of the Americas that were easily picked off one at a time by the cunning Spanish Conquistadores.
The military industrial complex and the clandestine organizations in the US and Europe responding to the US presence clearly have the Japanese model in mind as evidenced by the whistleblower testimonies of Colonel Corso and others who participated in clandestine reverse engineering programs not disclosed to the general public and elected public officials. Clandestine government organizations are going to great efforts to modernize' their weapon systems through trade, treaties and even military confrontation with ET races in the hope that global humanity through its strongest nations will be able to deal with the ET presence through a position of strength. At the global political level, there are efforts to centralize the use of military force through global multilateral institutions such as the UN (Iraq 1991) or NATO (Kosovo 1999); or a multilateral action led the US with the support of a coalition of the willing' (Iraq 2003).
first sight, a global policy based on the Meiji restoration is very understandable
and even praiseworthy in the means by which it sets out to preserve humanity's
sovereignty and independence by a rapid program of military modernization and
global political unity. There are nevertheless dangers in following the Meiji
model of transformation in responding to the interventionary activities of more
technologically advanced ET races. One is the lesson provided by history itself
where Japan was defeated in the Second World War as a result of an overconfidence
possessed by its still immature political leaders who were captivated by the success
of militarism in transforming Japan. Militarists grew in power and asserted Japanese
power in a way that broke the tacit diplomatic boundaries essential for preserving
regional peace. This is currently being evidenced in the US where recent military
successes in Afghanistan and Iraq have elevated the influence of political leaders
who espouse a doctrine of military intervention as a means of resolving US foreign policy problems that is not that dissimilar to Japanese militarism early in the twentieth century. There is a likely hood that the clandestine government organizations representing global humanity - still relatively immature in dealing with interplanetary affairs between ET species - may similarly overstep tacit boundaries that exist which prevent an overt and large scale extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs.
The danger of clandestine government organizations taking global humanity down a path of militarism in responding to the ET presence is very real since non-disclosure of the ET presence to the general public and elected political leaders means that only a select few are privy to knowledge of all aspects of the ET presence and interventions, and only this privileged minority participate in the policy making process. There is the testimony of former participants in clandestine government activities such as Preston Nichols, Stewart Swerdlow, Al Bielak, Peter Moon, Stephen Schwartz, and others that secret interplanetary wars are already being conducted by Earth based clandestine organizations using advanced military technology. This suggests that the policy making process concerning how to respond to the ET intervention and the use of ET technology is dominated by those in the military-intelligence sector of national governments who have a predisposition toward the utility of a military-technological response. The restricted policy making process that takes place in organizations embedded in military and security organizations in the US such as the National Security Council, different military branches and intelligence units in the US military, CIA, primarily excludes seasoned diplomats from the Department of State that would be more cautious in their optimism over the utility of military technology in negotiating with and responding to advanced ET races.
In summary, the continued non-disclosure of the ET presence, and the focus on an increasing militarized response to ET interventions, reflected in part by increased militarism in international affairs as evidenced most recently by US intervention in Iraq, constitutes a great danger to human sovereignty and independence since it may lead to a kind of interplanetary war where defeat would erase humanity's sovereignty and independence. As Japan might testify in response to its own loss of sovereignty and independence after rapid advances in military technology led to the growth of Japanese militarism and a disastrous confrontation with the US, a militarized response to a technologically advanced civilization carries many inherent perils.
Danger Posed by a Faked Second Coming
The second danger is the pervasive belief by hundreds of millions if not billions of people around the planet that these are the End Times' where there will be a Second Coming' involving the return of a spiritually advanced being such as Christ for Christians; Messiah for Jews, Isa for Muslims; Kalki for the Hindus; Maitreya for Buddhists, etc. Such a being would presumably save humanity from an impending global catastrophe engineered by corrupt individuals/institutions, or a disastrous military conflict with hostile ET races, and usher in a golden age of peace and harmony. The belief in a Second Coming' is so deeply embedded in the collective psyche of humanity that it could be well described as an archetype of the collective unconscious'. It can be predicted that such an archetype would be exploited by ET races wishing to remove humanity's sovereignty and independence in a much more covert way than overt ET intervention. This indeed would parallel the Spanish Conquest of the Americas where conquistadores such as Hernando Cortes exploited the religious belief system of the native Americans and persuaded them that the Spaniards were the returning gods'.
A number of controversial book authors such as Al Bielak, Preston Nichols, Stewart Swerdlow, Peter Moon and others claim to have been part of a clandestine military project dubbed the Montauk Project' which used advanced technology such as genetic cloning, holographic projection and time-travel. Such technology was said to have been given to clandestine government organizations by various ET races. If such reports are accurate, then it would be possible and even likely that the pervasive belief in a Second Coming' could be exploited by ET groups that freely intervene in human affairs and who typically enter into agreements with clandestine government organizations. Using time travel technology, such ET races could use DNA samples from the historic Jesus' or religious relics such as the Shroud of Turin, to clone a hybrid ET/human being that could be passed off as the returning Christ. Using holographic projection around key areas of the globe, such a figure could appear in the miraculous manner expected by religious adherents. As the result of DNA testing and a host of miracles manufactured either by ET holographic technology or by the ET/human hybrid himself, such a being and his supporters could persuade a sufficient number of believers from the different religious traditions that he was the returning Christ/Messiah/Isa/Kalki/Maitreya.
It could be expected that such a being could bring about peace in perennial conflicts such as Israel/Palestine, Kashmir, and elsewhere, by the force of his charismatic personality, miraculous deeds, and overt support by ET groups. If such a Second Coming' were to happen, this new Christ' would gain enormous global authority. The religious authority of such a hybrid being and the associated ET races supporting such a returned Christ' would pose a direct threat to the sovereignty and independence of global humanity.
Traditional religious institutions such as the Catholic Church would receive a huge boost in authority and relevance as they would predictably form a close relationship with this returned Christ' and the ET races supporting him. There is evidence already that the Catholic Church is undergoing a significant doctrinal change where senior clerics including the Pope himself now support the possible benevolence' of ET races and their abilities to faithfully express the message of Christ. The final result would be a new religious dispensation where humanity is indoctrinated with the authority of a new global religion that integrates the Second Coming' with overt ET intervention. The release to the general public of advanced ET technology that resolves global environmental problems, and the co-opting of amenable religious authorities would be powerful markers of the new dispensation'.
The opponents' of this new religious dispensation and the global authority of an ET manufactured Christ/Messiah would be those that deny the authority of such a being and the global institutions and processes that are created in the wake of his authority and charisma. There would be many from traditional religious belief systems that would deny such a new dispensation as has been historically the pattern when widespread religious reform has occurred. Historically, however, such opposition weakens as religious adherents slowly convert to the new dispensation. The strongest opposition to a staged Second Coming heralding a new religious dispensation would be those in the New Age' and New Thought' movements who typically champion more autonomous or sovereign individual decision making without appeal to external religious authority. Popular New Age channels/leaders such as Lee Carroll, Geoffrey Hope, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Jasmuheen, Barbara Marciniak and leaders in the New Thought movements found in churches such as Unity, Universal Unitarian, Christian Science, and others, all focus on the sovereignty and independence of each individual as they are able to give full expression to their own inner divinity and authority. Adherents of these New Age and New Thought ideals are very dismissive of universal claims of religious authority, and while a staged Second Coming may hold some initial appeal with its connection to various ET races and the historic Jesus, the religious dimension associated with it would be eventually opposed.
A growing religious/spiritual conflict between the believers in the Returned Christ,' and unbelievers' in the New Age' and New Thought' movements and dissenting religious groups would therefore emerge. A wave of political repression could be launched in democratic nations where adherents in the New Dispensation confront and violate the rights of those opposed. Adherents of New Age/New Thought would be either repressed or marginalized ensuring the rapid spread of a new ET inspired global religion which places at the pinnacle of global authority an ET hybrid claiming to be the returned Christ' whose DNA would match the historical Jesus.
Conclusion: Preserving Human Sovereignty
Global humanity has a rapid learning curve ahead of it if it is to navigate the challenges posed by ET intervention to human sovereignty and independence. Thankfully, there are genuinely benevolent ET races assisting humanity in its evolution into a race of sovereign and independent beings capable of stewardship of planet Earth and her rich resources. These ET races, however, follow a policy of non-intervention in human affairs which distinguishes them from less spiritually evolved ET races who have other priorities than the evolution of global humanity. The key for global humanity navigating these present and future dangers is to be alert to belief systems that allow the possibility of interventionist ET's subverting human sovereignty and independence. Put in its simplest terms, the prescription for responding adequately to ET intervention in human affairs is that individuals should not give their power away to others claiming to hold the means to save humanity either through technological means or a new religious belief system proclaiming a new savior.
Each individual needs to develop in a fashion suitable to their own temperament and religious sensibility, a set of practices that leads to a reconnection to a part of themselves, their higher self', soul', spirit', etc., which is the ultimate basis of all authority. Given the present focus of much of global humanity in dealing with the challenging material conditions that confront individuals in terms of shrinking labor markets, erosion of state welfare, and threats posed by global terrorism, this will be a great challenge to many who have little experience in reconnecting with a part of themselves that operates outside of the realm of thought and action. Thankfully, many pioneering teachers have presented practices that focus on sacred geometric structures and sounds that exist in the bio-energy fields' of each individual which provides the means for them making the connection to their higher self'. The preservation of human sovereignty and independence lies in recognizing the ultimate authority and best protection against technologically advanced ET races is a strong and healthy connection to one's higher self'.
Placing faith in military technology as a response to ET intervention, and/or a new religious authority/dispensation will play into the hands of ET races which desire to undermine human sovereignty and independence. ET intervention in human affairs has been occurring for at least the last 50 years according to numerous testimonies from former government/military officials in various clandestine organizations. There is evidence from archeological, historical and religious sources that cycles from overt to covert ET intervention have occurred for many thousands of years. What distinguishes our modern era is that ET intervention has largely been covert as a result of clandestine government suppression of the ET presence. However, it is very likely that this will soon change in a dramatic fashion either in the form of an overt conflict with ET's by militarized clandestine government organizations who unwittingly overstep tacit boundaries that limit overt ET intervention, and/or an engineered Second Coming'. These likely events require some forethought into how individuals and global humanity can best respond to such events/announcements while preserving human sovereignty and independence. While the idea of military defense and/or a strong leader/savior appeals to many, a strong and healthy connection to one's higher self' is the narrow passage through which individuals and global humanity can navigate the Scylla and Charybdis of impending ET intervention in human affairs.
