It is indeed tempting to joke about George LoBuono, the author of the good-ish book. On the picture on his website he looks like he is either an alien
himself, or at least is staring one in the eyes
I do not have the time to read his entire book, but I glanced over it. It is well written and he usually says who his sources are. As he currently
offers a free download I think it is worth a look.
The big question is of course: What, if anything, he says is true? It all sounds exciting and plausible, but of course he cannot prove his claims.
Anyway, nice read, even if it were merely a science fiction story.
A few random quotes from the book:
"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?"
"If true, Krapf's story would be the second full-length, minute-by-minute account about an open alien attempt at diplomatic interaction with fully
conscious humans. The first was Alec Newald's book, Coevolution, about a ten-day journey to Haven, the planet of a competing alien group. "
"Among alien populations, the sexual vs. non-sexual distinction is considered so important, so intrinsic to sorting out complex issues, that a basic
non-sexual perspective appears to be the universal standard. Why is that? Because a non-sexual lifestyle is more internally consistent, more
cool-headed and ecological."
"The case is under continued scrutiny, but since Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations was reportedly given effective control of both MJ12 and
PI40 more than fifty years ago, such programs have been infiltrated to an extreme, due to their removal from public control. That would help explain
why numerous official sources say Republican presidents after Eisenhower were only given token information about the secret programs (except Bush Sr.,
who knew much more), while Democratic presidents were mostly excluded. Apparently, owing to the politics of self-interest and Rockefeller’s web of
contacts, Republicans are considered easier to control. In my opinion, the crimes committed via direct operative control of alien-related programs are
worse than the Intolerable Acts that sparked the American Revolution. It’s a deeper, more dangerous situation. This time it threatens an entire
"Do aliens believe in God or a Creator? The question assumes that there’s a single, individual entity, a kind of superbeing with singular
character. Aliens usually don’t think in such terms. Instead, they talk about a multiplicity of intelligences that can converge in a collective
community of mind, which you participate in and are part of."
"Here's a beginning exercise that I suggest often. Close your eyes and just relax. Clear your mind of all concerns. Make it a dark blank. Then raise
your hand up and hold it near your head (eyes closed). Using the structure of the nerves in your brain (and elsewhere) try to sense that hand, not
visually, but its energy fluctuations."
