Points of Clarification
Outer Space Security and Development Treaty of 2011
1. This Treaty does not ban weapons located on earth.
2. This Treaty bans the “weaponization” of space. The “militarization” of space, which has occurred, requires a new definition for the
purposes of this Treaty. Militaries already provide enhanced intelligence and communication, observation and data sharing, and can help to pave a safe
way for humans to enter into the universes and for members of Cosmic Cultures to enter the Earth sphere safely.
3. The strategy of this Treaty incorporates the reality that humans have evolved into a condition of much higher consciousness than that of the past,
and that we will be working with Cosmic Cultures whose situation and willingness to cooperate with Earth cultures is based upon that higher
consciousness. The Signatories of this Treaty acknowledge this viewpoint because it is necessary to work within the context of the highest truth in
our time, and because this is the only approach that will garner the support needed to enact this Treaty."
