Yes, Dr. Schatt, I would very much like to tell you my story. I will share my email and phone number with you via my email from this site, however that is possible. I also have a book that I would like to share with you that tells my story.

I had never painted in my life until twelve years ago, until I woke up one morning and the good aliens began talking to me and told me where a piece of cardboard was in my house and where some paints were. I am looking forward to talking more indepth with you. I have learned a lot in the past twelve years.

Dr. Stan Schatt, welcome to ATS and thanks for stopping through to share with us here.

1 will try to keep the content questions minimal to allow others chance to ask questions.

My questions are, for those who may be seeking information or TRUTH about ET/ID is it possible that a large piece of disclosure evidence is associated with the amount of secrecy and spin off distraction Conspiracy theories used to distract the masses from the TRUTH?

Also do you think that its possible that on and off EA*RTH military components from different global governments (some possible in contact) are doing their best to keep this information pertaining to ET/ID secret until they find more objective understanding of what they are and what their interest here are?

There may exist a hidden campaign to distract many from the unknown until it becomes more known to those who govern EA*RTH (who may be assessing safety potentials)
Could this be the reason why its not so easy to find TRUTH on them?

And so maybe the media and social media as well as movie and book making and writing are used on the masses to do mass psychological evaluations & observations to review possible mass public opinion and responses to them and their presence until full disclosure is granted/permitted...

NAMASTE*******

I suppose I should modify my position slightly and say that the SETI people I have read (Vakoch, Shostak, etc.) are agnostic in the sense that they argue they haven't seen any signs of life but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist out there. They have been very negative about reported UFO sightings, ancient aliens, etc.


Have you spoken with Dr. Paul Davies? He's a professor at Arizona State University who has worked with and given lectures at the SETI institute on topics like "is time travel possible?"

I ask this because he has been advocating a crowdsourced search for (ancient) alien artifacts on the Moon. Given that you seem to believe such artifacts exist what are your thoughts on this?

This is the best AMA I've read on ATS.

I've thought about this for awhile: there seems to be a few different levels when looking at international politics. The first is the base, emotional level where people take most of what they hear as truth. "Iran will blow up Israel!" "No it won't!" Ad infinitum. People at this level are forced to one side or the other out of not only human nature, but at this point out of information overload, at least those who're paying attention.

The second level is those who use the Hegelian method of discourse to try and balance their views, siding with neither but usually leaning towards one side or the other. "If it weren't for our invasion of Iraq, ISIS would not exist in its current form" "well, this is true, yet if we had not of abandoned them that would also be the case". This level tries to balance the extreme polarities found in our discourse, but it often, at least in my mind, fails to see the forest for the trees, as it is still working off of the supposition that a good bit of information we're being told is the truth.

The third level is one by which the first two levels are balanced, once again using the Hegelian dialect, but one is not so arrogant as to believe they know the truth but someone does. " Looking at the long-term trends in western debt ratios, it seems the U.S. foreign policy of destabilizing the world may have been planned as a way to maintain hegemony in the international arena; therefore, our actions were not only calculated (invading and abandoning Iraq) but were understood well in advance.

The fourth level is one where a person abandons all understanding for the purpose that there may be no grand plan and everyone is not only in it for their own narrow self-interests, but that any massive plan to dominate the world would not function as it is anathema to the nature of the sociopaths who control finance, government, and industry. The fourth step is one where the individual sees the world in a state of random chaos.

None of these steps are fully the truth, nor are any without veracity. I've been through them all. Which would you say is closest to the truth of the matter?

Oh, and got any stocks you want to let us in on?

Hello Dr. Schatt,

What is your opinion of the possibility of certain social engineers conspiring to hold back enough technology so that one day the visit they are prepping us for will be a believable hoax to further some agenda using held back technology?

Picture an aircraft carrier parking off New York in the 1800's for the effect.

Hi Dr. Stan - And welcome!

Here's my chart that I use for all of my work - from looking at it I'm sure you can determine what that work entails, low-frequency vibration and Reiki, sound (quadrophonic even), color and light combined with quartz and other crystals - Colorgone, I call it - basically all octaves of frequencies I can conjure per energy center.

There are many on this site who don't believe in any of this and will likely express that here, regardless - I use it and it works better than other systems, according to those who do such things.

This is combined info from many different groups and theologies, obviously - most of which ever bothered to look left or right and make the correlations (Rosicruicians believe in A432 and Om and the Cosmic Keyboard/law of octaves, but believe Chakra work and Kundalini is dangerous and work with the glands instead - same thing though, and etc)

Interested to hear your opinion.

I was just able to follow this after work. I read a lot of science fiction and I have come across several ideas that seem realistic to me. I would like your thoughts on them, if you would.

Satellites that can zoom in enough to reada VIN on a car (2030). How possible is this? Would drones be a more realistic tool for zooming in (My current thought)?

Star Gates that destroy the original copy (human, machine) and recreate it a galaxy away at the same moment? (almost like an Ansible from Ender's Game (Stephen Baxter's Manifold series.)

Human "seedships" that are nothing more than future lunar/orbital colonies that decided to travel to other stars? (Ray Bradbury's The Beginning and the End)

Contacts as in (Vernor Vinge's Rainbows End) that allow us to travel the web and view the world in different settings by a flick of the wrist or facial expression?

I know that is a lot to ask, but I hope you have time to speak on some of these.

1. Historically size of families have declined with greater affluence, so if conditions improve in the 3rd world, we could see that happen. Here in the US it seems to be a status symbol for affluent families to have more kids lately--- Kind of like buying the largest available SUV and flaunting their wealth.


I agree but the rich are an extremely small minority. I make good money, live a good life and I decided that two kids were economically the right number for me. I can get the whole family in one average car, I can live well in a three bedroom house, my wife only needs to worries about two kids in her soccer mom type hell of supporting all their activities, and I need to only support two degree programs....

I'm in my 50s and started late in life with a family. I see many in their 40s and 30s that have decided that children is not even apart of their life calculations for happiness. India, South America, some parts of Africa still have that large family mentality, but even in a good chunk of Asia it has chanced to either 1 or 2 kids or none.

China is in for a wild ride as their population ages and they have a much larger percentage of old compared to young with their low birth rate. I also see the retirement age to push 75 in the near future or beyond.




2. Fascinating-- I predicted a few years ago that hotels and resorts would offer "dead zone" retreats as a way of enticing overworked people who needed time away.


As alternate energy becomes cheaper I can see true off the grid back to the 50s/40s mentality take form as a popular living style. It is funny how older SiFi movies that have old style stuff mixed in with super advance stuff as the what I see as the closest example as to what we might be like in another 20 to 50 years.

the concept of a Resource Based Economy as purposed by The Venus Project and The Zeitgeist Movement are alien to people, yet it can't be implemented until backed by industry leaders, the people responsible for the technology our economic system rides the waves of, if a Resource Based Economy can't happen in America where will it happen ?

Hi and thanks for being here!

Can you explain a little bit more to me about the idea that the future cannot be predicted beyond 2040 due to the exponential evolution of AI?

Also, do you ever cross paths with Ray Hammond? If so do you share similar ideas?

Hi Stan, thanks for being here. For the sake of discussion, I would like to refute some of the assumptions:


I'd start with the first-hand reports the first day from Roswell.


Brazel related that on June 14 he and 8-year old son Vernon were about 7 or 8 miles from the ranch house of the J.B. Foster ranch, which he operates, when they came upon a large area of bright wreckage made up of rubber strips, tinfoil, a rather tough paper and sticks. At the time Brazel was in a hurry to get his round made and he did not pay much attention to it. But he did remark about what he had seen and on July 4 he, his wife, Vernon and a daughter Betty, age 14, went back to the spot and gathered up quite a bit of the debris. The next day he first heard about the flying disks, and he wondered if what he had found might be the remnants of one of these.. ufologie.net..." target="_blank" class="postlink">ROSWELL DAILY RECORD, JULY 9, 1947

I think that is about as first hand as it can get...


I would add John Podesta's recent remark that he wanted to see full disclosure on the topic of aliens.

What he tweeted was:

"Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #the truthisstilloutthere"

I think there is quite a bit of difference between "UFO files" and "aliens".


I find the Indian Vedas very interesting because they read like Star Wars.

Text written in 1918; machines described are unable to fly... Vimanas


A few years ago a meteor fell to Earth that apparently once had been a part of Mars --scientists claimed they saw fossils embedded in it. The story died and nothing was said after that.

The jury is still out on that one, there are other explanations. Possible evidence of life


Finally, some remarks by astronauts suggest they saw UFOs but were told not to talk about them.

Jim Oberg, who worked at NASA's mission control:

From hundreds and hundreds of such stories and videos that I’ve studied, [...] I’ve seen no compelling indication of anything beyond the realm of modern science – nothing. link


I am not saying extra-terrestrials or inter-dimensionals do not exist, nor that they are not visiting, nor that any of the points you raise are not true. I am just pointing out that there are other more down-to-earth explanations. This is a bit the 'problem' with ufology these days: claims/counterclaims, videos/hoaxes-misidentifications, sightings/earthly explanations, etc. But, then again, that also makes it interesting.

Best regards.

Hello. Thank you for answering all the questions. I have enjoyed reading your replies.

I have often wondered what off-planet life would be like and what circumstance would cause any aliens to want to make contact with us. I hope you do not mind me asking the following.

Q: If aliens were to make contact and advise humanity as a whole has to 'evacuate' Earth (let's imagine that the aliens provide the evidence for such a drastic action), what would be your thoughts and decision about leaving? Would it matter to you if the aliens were or were not capable of understanding emotion?

Hi, it's been a great read so far.. Thanks.

What do you see as the future for storage of knowledge?
Do you think we will lose all our knowledge eventually with the written word becoming obsolete?


The written word is not obsolete. It's format has changed much like it's done since it came into being.
Cave paintings became papyrus. Papyrus became paper and ink. The printing press revolutionized the printed word giving us the modern world and now it's stored cyberly. (Is that a word, it should be)
Still we read. E readers internet news online university. The written word continues to evolve but it's not going anywhere.

Early in your introduction, you expressed an interest in finding the ET smoking gun. But you are stopped short by an argument from a naysayer with a couple of advanced degrees. Are all of your conclusions had at the approval of intellectual bullies?
Meanwhile, people worldwide have the smoking gun experience for themselves, but they don't cut it, right?

Hi Stan,

I tend to disagree that the "public is being manipulated by mass media to “prepare” it to accept aliens", as you state.
To me, it is more like the tail wagging the dog. I think that the public is basically becoming more open to controversial ideas , and that is being reflected in the media.

Even "Aliens" are too much of a stretch at this point. What needs to be revealed is what most of these "UFO's" really are.

If that invokes Aliens, then so be it, however, Aliens should not be part of that revelation until they are officially linked.

FYI- Dr. Schatt will return to answer more questions later today (probably around 3:00pm Eastern), he is a busy futurist after all and the future doesn't wait around for anyone.

Dr. Schatt, it's a pleasure to make your electronic acquaintance, and I'm sure I can speak for everyone else here on ATS when I say thank you for taking the time out to talk with us, and share your thoughts on ideas on such fascinating topics.

Because I'm currently at work (oh, the daily grind, oh...), I'm going to sort of break a rule here, and ask there questions, only because I don't have time to look through all of the posts on this thread to see if they have been asked yet. If you could be gracious enough to just choose one to answer, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, a little sidenote, I'm going to check out your book. It seems like a fascinating read for sure.

Now my questions:
- In your own mind, in your own personal beliefs, how do you feel "official" first contact will affect the established belief systems on this planet? Basically, the religious ramifications of such a tremendous event.

-As you can see, my screen name is Singularity spelled with various characters. I'm absolutely FASCINATED by the prospect of such a breakthrough. How do you think mankind can go about utilizing the singularity in such a way as to avoid the obvious negative connotations that come along with it?

-For those who are of a strong religious faith (I myself am an agnostic just for conversation's sake), can these technological breakthroughs that are on the horizon as a whole exist along with God, destroy religion, or give birth to a sort of technological religion in it's own right?

Thank you again for talking with us! I feel like you have a lot to offer. Have a great day my friend.

Note to Mods: Again I apologize for asking multiple questions, but I feel I gave a plausible reason to do so. If you feel you must warn me, edit my post or PM me for anything, I will absolutely show my respect for your decisions. I love this forum and just know that I'm all about doing things properly on ATS. Have a great day guys. I'll be back in a bit.

I'm very optimistic that something will happen relatively soon. There is far more of a "buzz" about the subject. It's interesting that you should mention "sleeper" agents. I wrote a book called Alien Love that will be published this summer by Booktrope in which I liken Earth to Casablanca just before WW2 with alien agents playing the role played by Nazis in the movie. Once again, no tangible proof but a feeling that things are going to break soon.
