Introductory Letter : ITEMS: ET to Earth: Do You Wish That We Show UP?
MWM: This long letter to humanity appeared with no apparent return address. It is being
posted here and there. This is another internet piece for which I cannot assess the validity. All I
CAN say is that it sounds like a good idea, is coherent, and is written skillfully at a level of
intelligence and maturity with I would associate with a serious, non-technical, matter-of-fact
level of discourse. It is not ethnically loaded and the writer has a very good understanding of
language and human psychology, though there are a few moments where the grammar is different
than we are accustomed to and there are a couple of language errors. Most importantly, it makes
no reference to impossible constructs, faux-tech, nor any type of religious or New Age
buzzwords. This is as clean a straight-shooting letter as you will find. Accordingly I am
sending it to you to "vet" it and see what our Phoenix Five brain trust surmises about it. I am
also sending it to you because it might be real...
The main assertion in the letter is that human civilization is now in an uncontrollable free-fall
implosion which cannot be "fixed" from within existing social systems. The implosion is
causing, will cause a major rupture in all human orders. There is a dark road down toward the
use of technology to rapidly enslave human populations in a badly degraded and unhealthy
environment. Those who are defining this path, many of them unintentionally, have the greater
advantage of power over resources and may gain the upper hand during the coming rupture.
There are many who would take a liberating path, they could gain the upper hand if they
UNDERSTAND THE CHOICE and can lose their fear, sense of isolation, and ignorance about
the true state of affairs.
