Human-alien interactions are common and ongoing. Indeed, the thesis of my next book (After Contact and Conflict) is that such interactions are the
norm, not the exception, among our neighbors. But what KIND of interactions? Do our neighbors openly invite heavy-handed, uninvited technological
semi-occupation by one heavy industrial alien group into their worlds? Common sense suggests no, of course not. There's an organic derivative of law,
whether it’s written or not, whether acknowledged by one offending alien population or not. It's explicit in the universal ecology. All peoples
must be careful about who approaches them.
The norm for alien interactions is a mixed community of interactions. Human neophytes sometimes think, or want to think, that it's okay to just open
your skies to heavy industrial, agenda-minded alien incursions and let them descend to do as they choose---after all, they're more advanced
technologically, therefore they must know best, goes such thinking. But if and when readers pay close attention to the well-phrased, very thoughtful
accounts of any and all of our native neighbors (gray alignment aliens—grays, Nordics, Pleiadians, Semitics, gray hybrids like those who crashed at
Roswell aren’t native to our galaxy), readers begin to notice that such populations welcome the universal mindedness of mixed alien community of
mind and at least some interactions via mind-communications. However, few if any of our neighbors think it's safe to allow heavy incursions, direct
intrusions of other alien societies into their skies. That is thought to be dangerous.
So, when talking about human diplomacy we need to specific. Diplomacy is reserved for recognized representatives who are in direct, open consultation
with their peoples. Diplomacy isn't a role arrogated by individuals who think they always have the best interests of a people in mind. Instead,
diplomacy is only valid when the process is open and involves legitimate representation. Diplomacy refers to the representation of a people's formal
or delegated governmental auspices, or authority. The typical human contactee has no direct communications with human governments about a
"diplomatic" role. Human governments haven't yet risen to the existing, contemporary inter-stellar standard of honesty about aliens in an inhabited
universe. Therefore, diplomacy isn't the correct word to describe what typically occurs between a contactee and an alien, or aliens.
There is one complication in this, at present. Human governments aren't composed along the lines of equality, either economically or socially, while
alien societies almost universally are, or at least try to formulate themselves as being aware of larger social wholes. The more evolved, alien kind
of citizenship is one that’s universal in a society, where it isn't so much a matter of top-of-a-pyramid "authority" and control, but rather is
one of involvement, shared government and directly involved citizenship rather than elite-nominated citizenship. Nonetheless, there are authorities in
alien societies, aliens who may cut an alien off or limit his/her interactions if an alien violates certain life-and-death safeguards.
So, contactees may feel as though human government isn't legitimate, according to alien standards, but it is, nonetheless government. The temptation
for some is to assume that their new experience, their awareness of aliens' more equalitarian norms allows a given human to speak for humankind--as a
kind of advanced-case diplomat, but do such people actually represent humankind? No, they can't possibly do so when no human government openly
acknowledges the existence, let alone the policy and political character of aliens.
Is that fair? No, it isn't. We need to have people actively exploring and querying, investigating and carefully communicating with aliens, but there
are real dangers out there to be mindful of. Our very own, nearby alien neighbors have apparently chosen to not allow mass incursion, alien buzzing of
their skies (intended to impress unsuspecting humans) by other aliens in advanced craft. Would your nation invite the Chinese to fly over at any time,
provided they don't land or openly occupy your soil? Obviously not. That would tempt the Chinese to exercise some control over your skies. Before
long, they might presume to limit and determine your international relations, your commerce and your contacts. It would be dangerously naive to expect
that aliens are any different in that regard.
The Chinese would also be incompetent were they to allow United States craft or drones to buzz their skies. It's a simple matter of
self-determination, responsibility and the necessary development of a peoples' educated awareness of their circumstance. Humans and aliens must
patrol and monitor their surroundings.
So, when Steven Greer profits by openly inviting aliens to buzz a paying, supposedly "diplomatic" group whose only qualifications are having paid
$2300 or more for a view of aliens and alien craft, does that rate as real human diplomacy? Of course not. Greer hasn't even bothered to query or
elucidate the history, policy and origins of the given aliens. Perhaps it makes him feel good to be the man standing in the spotlight when an alien
craft descends, Greer in the center of an alien ship's glow, but where's the real stuff of diplomacy---detailed reports about the internal dynamics,
the disposition and history, the demands and or wants of those same aliens?
Rather than be specific, Greer tends to speak in terms of his understanding of God and an alien role in a larger kind of consciousness. That's an
important kind of consideration but it isn't diplomacy. Diplomacy is a formal role between peoples and involves open consultation, review, and
reporting to both peoples. Obviously, human governments have chosen to ignore a vital reality. Their default has become dangerous to this planet, at
this time, because events proceed apace nonetheless, without adequate analysis and discussion. We are literally under a kind of semi-occupation by a
busy, potentially aggressive and materially motivated group of aliens: those aliens affiliated with so-called "grays" and the other aliens of their
reported alignment. Researcher agree about this, although we tend to quibble over our interpretation of such facts.
Absent minimal, careful reporting to humankind--look at the dissembled mess that our reports are--absent careful reportage, we’re extremely
vulnerable. There are reports of abductions, fatalities, taking of positions on planets near us, and a possible infiltration phase pursuant to genetic
manipulation on a mass scale. And what is that all about?
That's a subject for formal, mass consideration on this planet, but due to corruption and a technically non-competent kind of elite social order on
this planet, human governments can't agree with, or acknowledge the existing contemporary standard of all alien worlds: open, informed discussion of
such subjects. Human governments think that ignorance is the best policy.
In my case, I've interacted with aliens for years but have never once claimed to represent humankind. Instead, I've openly stated that I'm an
investigative researcher, I will report as much as I learn to other humans—whether it be complimentary or not. I don’t ignore ugly or disturbing
details. I never pretend to represent human government(s), although the subject of larger human identity is very much a part of all such discussions.
There are many important distinctions to be made within that same context, but my interactions can't be called diplomacy. To say that would be like
wearing a Burger King crown and pretending to represent a given city.
We, on this planet, are still working on creating an awareness that will provoke enough people to demand honesty of their governments. We haven't
arrived there yet. In view of that, we need to be more careful when discussing the notion of diplomacy. Otherwise, we dissemble into a babble of
competing, often unscientific pretenders, each claiming to be a real diplomat regarding aliens. Imagine what happens when some on this planet say that
yes, they represent humankind and truly want an abducting, materially motivated group of aliens to land here and operate more freely.
Would our neighbors do that? Or would they opt for more narrowly channeled physical relations and a healthy distance, a protective cordon in their
skies to prevent unwanted taking of their resources, occupation of their surroundings, and direct manipulation of their people?
Isn't the answer to that question most obvious?
Which brings us back to the subject of human-alien communications. In a book I'm currently writing, I pose that our first challenge is to develop
concepts and communications norms to more adequately equal the fast shifts of consciousness and more finely textured physics and relationships that
our alien neighbors have already begun upon. But how does a typical person even begin on that? Does he or she have to resort to contacting an
intrusive, potentially dangerous alignment of aliens now in our near vicinity?
No. The easiest, more productive place to begin is your very own back yard. Animal consciousness knows no barriers to the fast shifts of consciousness
and telepathic awareness that human physics and research programs have already proven to exist. In order to simply survive, animals feel into any and
every kind of awareness that they can---with one exception: they must try to guise or limit their location when other animal predators are close. They
must hide their nests, food supply and progeny. As math professor Barbara Shipman at the University of Rochester notes, honey bees do a
pollen-locating dance for other bees that corresponds to what mathematicians call “the flag manifold,” an extra dimensional configuration. Lacking
cognitive filters for such ideas, animals already use extra sensory perception. For example, just before the tsunami devastated Southeast Asia in
December of 2004, dogs tugged their owners uphill and elephants picked people up and carried them to higher ground—before the tsunami was even
Lacking conceptual blocks to such awareness, animals can expand their consciousness and feel into places that direct, line of sight vision cannot.
Your best place to begin on sensing such consciousness is the smallest, the very smallest birds in your back yard, the finches or hummingbirds, for
example. Here’s how to do so. Feed them and place clean water for them to drink. Place bird seeds for them to feed on ($5 for a big sack that lasts
6 months), and whenever you go outside to either fill or check on the food they will quickly be aware of your presence. You're regarded as
friendly---after all, what could be more supportive than providing for their survival (besides respecting and committing to the planet's resonant
ecology, that is)?
Animal communications are easily possible, but you must remember that they don't use words or your kind of "language." Instead, animals communicate
ideas and a more subtle kind of pictorial notion. Your pet dog or cat may do the same with you. Some people pick up on it, and when you respond the
animal takes it in stride---your pet can't bark out Aha! or a verbal statement. The reason I suggest small birds is because, if you want to feel into
their kind of non-verbal communications, you must remember: they move more quickly, their hearts beat much more rapidly and that translates into much
faster, albeit more subtle shifts of consciousness. Those fast shifts of consciousness and concept are much closer to the alien standard of thought
and communications--for many reasons (information density, rapidity, subtlety and the ability to simultaneously be aware of other individuals and/or
A small bird can sculpt and focus, dim or soften its second depth communications to you--the idea seems to be to not broadcast it to competitor bird
species or predators. At first, their communications may elude you. They whistle or chirp to each other in a way that appears to be more a signal to
pay attention to the finer, information-packed second depth (telepathic) communications that their brains are clearly capable of. They actually feel a
kind of emotion (nurturing love, closeness, appreciation and gratitude, and a sense of community). Why do small birds gather together on wires to
share that last, fading warmth of the sun's rays? For the same reasons you gather with other humans. In that respect, birds are more social than
humans---they gather more often. And how do birds communicate that an entire flock will shift direction in flight? If you think about it, it's like
what dolphins reportedly do. They inflate their awareness into that second depth, a kind of telepathic sharing, and the entire group can pick up on
it—all at the same time. While flying with their kind, they feel safer to do so, hence the communication may be slightly amplified for the group.
And if you feed small birds, then reach out with your thoughts to rapidly communicate the pictorial thoughts, ideas of your care for them, your food,
your awareness, don't be surprised to hear what are essentially your little bird friends chirping either to you, along with fast-burst ideas or
chirping to their mates that you, the provider and believe-it-or-not, bird-aware human, is stepping outside. The first test you must pass with small
birds is to know that they are often chased away by jays or other larger birds. In order to watch out for each other, they tend to stick together.
You'll have to listen for the small chatter of that smaller-sized bird community. And if you’re sympathetic, they will recognize that.
But why talk about birds, here? Because by practicing with birds, by learning to pick up on their fast shifts of consciousness, you'll be much more
competent to interact with aliens in order to understand their more condensed, fast impulse kind of thinking. Remember, aliens don't necessarily
begin with the human, mammalian idea of consciousness. Don't assume that the slow, rolling motions and physical impulses of a chimpanzee (an old
human imprint) are either the model or the assumption of an entirely alien population. The truth is, birds are much closer to an alien kind of
rapidity, subtlety, even if the larger bones and frame or physical gestures of an alien body may seem to align with our simian notion.
Aliens learn from other species. They “talk” about a deeper, finer kind of conversation with the nature around them. They can learn to shift, or
essentially divide their nerve impulses into the much deeper, much faster yet slighter universal whole---which is a fractional awareness rather than
the old, essentially primitive human notion of being surrounded by whole-numbered, concrete individual objects. Ever communicate with an alien?
No doubt you noticed that they will never reduce their awareness to just the chatter between you and them. They always leave it open to larger
awareness---either their group or possibly larger. They know that there's a kind of cross-exchange on a larger, yet finer and deeper scale. The best
aliens know that such awareness (a kind of looking back at, or through them) can far exceed their species bounds.
By practicing with small birds, you may also learn to sculpt and contour your awareness, or at least be aware that all "listeners" aren't
necessarily altruistic and in agreement with your principles. It's rather liberating and profound to see that supposedly small-brained birds can be
so fast, can pack so much detail (location, intensity, familiarity and collegiality, food concerns, survival, family, weather, even sentience) into
very fast bursts of communication. You have to listen without presumption.
You have to do the same with aliens. To even begin to communicate with your actual, native alien neighbors of this galaxy, you must first be able to
see beyond and communicate outside the bounds of the gray alien alignment that is currently intervening here. Our neighbors are open to communications
with humans, but you must first be able to merge the details into a higher kind of plasmic awareness, a smoothly yet greatly expanded envelope of
energy that isn't made of human words and textbook phrasing.
You can communicate great depth and detail, as such, without even reducing the exchange to the slowed, obfuscating terms of materially or
hegemony-minded gray alignment aliens. Some readers may think, no---grays have NO material, only altruistic motives here. After all, they're
aliens---with more advanced technology. But how do they make that technology? With materials, using information sometimes gleaned from other,
unsuspecting societies. They must mine metals, minerals and more. They must farm other materials. They must guard and protect their operations of the
sort because there are other alien competitors.
Do you really think grays and their associates don't do drills, don't have alerts, and don't even bother to report on and be vigilant re: the
presence of aliens who aren't part of their alignment (i.e. all of our native neighbors)? They are required to be on alert in such cases. And that
kind of mentality doesn't translate to gray alignment agreement that you should communicate with, and learn from, your native alien neighbors.
Instead, the gray alignment prefers to limit you to its subordinates.
We were talking about diplomacy, or the move toward a human awareness that will allow for real, meaningful diplomacy...
