Conducting diplomacy when one side (me) is committed to doing it openly, so that the people are kept fully informed at all times, and the other side is committed to secrecy and concealment is, it goes without saying, fraught with problems.
Taking a game theory approach it clearly requires the open party (me), to take matters into their own hands and speak openly. I am, having said that, kind of doing it incrementally, perhaps out of respect.
This also reflects the underlying assumption that the other side is listening, even if they are reluctant to respond (at least initially). I will come on to this shortly. Suffice to say that I think I’ve provoked and obtained their attention already. So I know they are listening (I hope they are).
Most people on this somewhat forbidden planet are utterly unaware of us visitors, as well as the other intelligent lifeforms in this sector. If they do express even the slightest idea that there might be ‘life out there somewhere’, this is done in a psychologically abstract way – perhaps by convincing themselves that such life is very far away – and therefore of no immediate import or relevance to their lives. In the same way the people are denied the hope and the exciting future that comes from space exploration (let alone spacefaring – i.e. interstellar travel) – ask most people and they will say something like ‘we need to fix the problems here on the ground first’ – not realising that all those problems are deliberately created and perpetuated by the dystopians in order to prevent progress, peace and prosperity – given that, as I have said before, such dystopians are not adapted for survival in a utopia.
This is a very good working definition of this minority, by the way – it puts them into a clearly understandable psychological perspective, and removes all the scary notions of grand conspiracies for totalitarian new world orders and so on. Of course, these people do realise that creating and maintaining a totalitarian global order is, ultimately, their only hope of long-term survival, and so by psychological definition, that will be their endgame objective.
Even if I did not have an ‘inkling’ (shall we say) about what’s going to happen in the near-term future (the rest of this century), it would not be difficult to predict or pre-empt how these dystopians will go about their grand master plan. A lot of the time now, however, I just see them as utterly pathetic.
In terms of soul ages, these are the youngest of all – in fact, it might not be unfair to suggest that they are not yet ready for the true hominid, self-aware experience – they are still at the level of the chimpanzee, so to speak – and yet they find themselves thrust into a lifeform (human beings) with the brain capacity to have language and complex communication, abstract thought, conceptual thought, imagination, self-awareness of their own mortality, extremely powerful emotions and so on – and, quite frankly, that must be a terrifying experience for them. They are simply not capable of answering life’s ‘big’ questions, or overcoming the death syndrome (awareness of mortality), let alone the so-called ‘existentialism/nihilism’ issue (the idea that life has no point or purpose to it etc.).
And so this perpetual spiritual insecurity leads them to seek security in other ways – specifically, material security, which is granted them through socio-economic privilege and control – obscene amounts of money and political power etc. Furthermore, these people are constantly and intimately aware that they are surrounded by slightly older souls than they – normal human beings, that is to say – who they perceive as a threat, simply by virtue of the normal human beings’ superiority. And so they need to distract, manipulate, and subjugate these normal people. Normal people, remember, in a situation of security and safety, are perfectly content with their lot, they are not overwhelmed by existential questions, they are spiritually self-confident, even if they do not yet have any understanding of the bigger philosophical picture. Somehow they understand and accept the fact that such understanding is not their current life’s purpose – their purpose is simply to experience, and learn through such experiences. The dystopians, by contrast, hate that self-confidence, because it’s something they feel they can never possess.
In a modern, post-truth dystopia such as this one, then, clearly secrecy and concealment are somewhat de rigueur.
This applies in particular to contact between humanity and extra-terrestrial intelligences. Why? I’ve touched on this before, but contact would open people’s horizons to such an extent that they would no longer be able to be controlled and subjugated. They would be motivated to sort out all the problems, knowing that once they do, they have a future. It would also force them to self-reflect, simply by thinking ‘what must the ETs think of us, looking down at our world, with all its horrors?’. This is a somewhat rhetorical question, obviously! But they would demand of their rulers that they sort out these problems – the rulers, of course, would be somewhat trapped, seeing as if they sort out these problems, they create a utopia in which they themselves cannot survive. Believe me, these dystopians know perfectly well what the simple solutions to the world’s problems are, but it’s not their interests to do them, for reasons I’ve explained. People should bear this in mind next time a democratic election comes around.
The dystopians also know, of course, that I know what these simple solutions are – they will be a little bit scared of my getting into a position where enough people listen to me, and act upon my recommendations. Especially the Secretary General of the United Nations.
Perhaps it’s got something to do with using your marvellous printing press invention to print lots of pieces of paper with numbers written on them and giving them to people? Just a thought.
Hopefully you, my dearest readers, are a little used to my tendency to ramble sometimes by now – as is customary though, I apologise!
So here is the nice little insight about these people being aware of me, as well as other visitors.
You may be aware by now that there are so-called intelligence agencies out there (like the NSA or GCHQ) who monitor people’s activities (both offline and online). In order to do this they employ powerful computers which have constantly running algorithms to try and make sense of all the data they receive. I certainly didn’t need the likes of Edward Snowden whistleblowing all of this, by the way. The two main reasons I know about all this is because firstly it’s just logical, and secondly I was an exceptionally good spy in a different lifetime (in a parallel world – I may tell you about it another time). In that lifetime the program we used was called ‘MIDAS’ (‘metadata analysis software’), and was a kind of prototype version (early 1990s MI5) of what is now standard.
The kind of data I’m talking about here includes the following: metadata (e.g. your list of phone calls or emails, when, with whom did you communicate, for how long, how often you talk to that person, etc. – this way they can get a good idea of your known associates and your in-group – they also look at both first degree connections (immediate associates you know personally) and second degree connections (associates of associates – most spies and terrorists worth their salt will always try and create an extra degree of separation between them and their associates, so the in-group isn’t readily apparent – hence the algorithm needs to take this into account); Internet browsing history (that one’s obvious); and the other main one is the keyword search and collection – in your phone calls (voice recognition), emails, and Internet and social media activities.
The algorithm might sound complicated at first, but actually it’s extremely simple. Essentially you simply assign a numerical value to each bit of data, which is a reflection of ‘how important’ or ‘suspicious’ etc. that bit of data is. Then you add up all the numbers to provide an overall ‘level of suspicion’ to the individual. It gets more complex of course when you bring in the contextual analysis. That’s to say, bits of data are mathematical variables, not fixed numbers – their value can be increased or decreased depending on the other variables. A very simple example would be in a sentence which includes keywords like Al Qaeda, terrorism, bombs, merchandise, America, jihad, and so on. The algorithm is sufficiently sophisticated to analyse the context and decide that, when those words are written by someone like me, who has absolutely no associations whatsoever with terrorism or terrorists let alone any intention of committing some atrocity against innocent people, my use of those keywords results in low values being assigned for those numbers. The values would be very different, however, were they used by, say, a disaffected 17-year old Muslim boy living in an inner-city, urban environment with poor grades at school who is constantly mouthing off about his personal problems on social media. You can clearly see how we’re talking about two completely different ‘profiles’ here.
Which of course is another important point. These spy agencies, simply for the purposes of efficiency, need to work with a profiling system, in which each profile itself is assigned an importance value (e.g. primary watch list, secondary watch list etc.). The algorithm is, naturally, programmed to associate certain patterns of data (and groups of people) with certain profiles.
Most normal people, by the way (well over 90%) will be almost automatically placed in the ‘harmless’ category. A further, let’s say 9%, will be placed in the ‘mostly harmless’ category, which allows the intelligence agencies to concentrate their forces on the remaining 1% (or less, as the case may be). This – at least in a society in which the spy agencies can be trusted – is the real reason for blanket data acquisition of the population – not so they can spy on you, but so they know they don’t have to spy on you! Remember that these people express ‘insecurity’ in their entire professional lives – they are, as it were, paid to be insecure – so if they can place you in a ‘harmless’ or ‘mostly harmless’ box, then they make themselves feel better.
Anyway, so much for the intelligence services.
What’s important, and, indeed, fascinating, from the ‘ET contact’ perspective, is that exactly the same thing applies, but in a far more focussed way.
There is, indeed, a somewhat secretive group who take the ET issue very seriously. They are certainly aware of the existence of us visitors, and perhaps even more importantly, of the reality of the so-called zoo hypothesis.
This group also has a supercomputer with a comprehensive data acquisition and analysis software. It’s just somewhat easier for them (their computer, I mean), because they are already narrowing down their search criteria to what is, relatively speaking, a very small minority of the population.
And so this is the group to which I am addressing much of what I write. This is the ‘other side’ in this hitherto one-sided open dialogue. I am perfectly aware they are keenly reading every word I say, however, so this knowledge gives me the opportunity to speak to them directly. It also tells them that I know they know, and they know I know they know – thus, hopefully, allowing both parties to think on the same game theoretical level – which, naturally, is very important in diplomacy.
How do I know all this? Well, like I said, it’s logically (psychologically) obvious. One of – if not the only – fundamental psychological drive underlying all others is the desire for security. Security comes from knowledge, the possession of accurate information. From their point of view, then, they need to know who we are, what we are, and what our intentions are.
Having said all this, there are, I admit, many things I don’t know about them. What I can guess, however, is that they are probably connected to some deep part of the American military (America thinks it’s the master race and that this world is a competition for global dominance etc.), in part a legacy of Operation Paperclip; they are, as indicated, perfectly aware of us visitors (and the fact that we’ve been visiting for a very long time), the reality of the zoo hypothesis (the habitable age of the galaxy combined with interstellar travel and colonisation etc., the true answer to the Drake equation), and therefore they have the ability to self-reflect – to answer that question about how ET views them. This is a positive thing, of course.
They will also, I believe, be aware of the quarantine warning placed on this planet, it clearly being a post-truth dystopia, and by extension the fact that the so-called ‘American way of life’ is simply not compatible with our multicultural (and from their point of view) communist society. This creates all manner of problems for them! Do they care about the future of their species? Do they consider themselves to be the good guys in this story, and if so, do they have enemies (the dystopians as I call them)? If so, maybe they might like my help in that regard… That would be nice.
What I – annoyingly – don’t know is what this group is called. This means, for diplomatic purposes, I can’t even address them correctly! Maybe I’ll just refer to them as the ‘ET group’ or something. I’m certainly not going to borrow names from some of those sci-fi visidramas like X-files and Dark Skies (that was a scary show that one, especially the downbeat ending). So I’m not going to call them MJ12 or something similar (another nice keyword there!).
Likewise, I am somewhat in the dark regarding their intentions and motivations. I know I’m not hostile – but are they? Hopefully they are sufficiently aware of deterrents to drastic actions. Maybe they weren’t to begin with, but I would hope they have since learned to be somewhat more conciliatory. One of the worst things they could do, for example, is, having identified visitors, abduct them to some godforsaken hellhole and torture them for information. Having studied the darker side of American history in some detail, I know perfectly well what the CIA is psychologically capable of with regards to torture (I was intimately aware of this in that other lifetime I mentioned when I was a spy, by the way – I’m extremely grateful to my SO (security officer) for putting me through IRT (Interrogation Resistance Training), which, if I remember correctly, was my KGB training course (TC) 201).
On that note I will repeat again – I’m a psychologist, not an engineer, so there’s no point asking me any questions about advanced technology – I’m sure it was all explained to me in many of my other lifetimes but I have a distinct feeling that kind of stuff went in one ear and straight out the other. I’ll leave that tech stuff to the engineering specialists, thank you very much.
Anyway – having answers to these questions would be very much appreciated.
An interesting point in all this in fact is the increase in intelligence and sophistication demonstrated by this Group. For example, the establishment of ‘honey pots’ – that’s to say, magnets for attracting both visitors and interested humans. They have probably worked out that we visitors are effectively thrown into a very alien environment, and even if we are born into loving human families (in my case it was the opposite) we still need the comfort of our own kind, our own family so to speak, and so it’s only logical that as our lives (and our rememberings) progress we will seek out those others. Unfortunately, most visitors, being more used to utopian environments in which other people can be trusted to have good intentions, may not at first realise that there are some very bad people in this dystopian world, who definitely do not have good intentions. Perhaps this was one of the few positives I can take from my abusive childhood – it taught me to be wary of human beings, and for my own survival benefit – focussed and enhanced my desire to understand them psychologically and acquire the necessary (often hidden) information to do so.
The dystopians by the way also create honey pots for so-called conspiracy theorists – because dystopians are constantly conspiring, they need to be aware of those who are aware of them, obviously! As I believe a certain V. I. Lenin once said, “The best way to defeat the opposition is to control it yourself.”
I have, for example, experienced quite a rethink about the so-called ExoPolitics Institute in this very regard. An Institute for Exo-Affair it is not. I only discovered them towards the end of last year (2020), and there is a lot of information on their so-called Exopedia that is total news to me. Unless, of course, this is because having finished my linear-time lifecycles 120-119 (or so) million years ago I am understandably utterly ignorant of what’s been happening in our galactic sector in the intervening period. But the idea of some kind of conflict simply doesn’t feel right to me. My emotional memories are of a very peaceful, multicultural sector indeed. Well, I don’t know – I will have to do some more research into this (both by conventional/linear-time means and non-linear time means).
One thing I did find curious and puzzling, however, was the fact that Paschats are not even mentioned in this Exopedia. This really beggars belief. Unless they’re trying to protect us somehow? I can’t see why – that would be unwarranted (and unnecessary) favouritism! So is that whole thing just one great honey pot? Is half of what’s in there a load of rubbish/misinformation?
Obviously, I am perfectly aware of the concept of misinformation – this should be obvious by now.
Anyway – sorry for the apparent digression. So then, once the Group’s computer algorithm has identified visitors, what do they do then?
In my view, first of all they would get themselves an accurate idea of the threat level. Most of the time this would be very low, I’m sure.
Second, they would need to know whether that person is a genuine visitor, or a delusional human. This, indeed, is really quite a crucial question.
In order to make this distinction they will need to employ a combination of psychological analysis, and cross-referencing to information about ETs which they know to be accurate, it having been verified by multiple independent sources. By now, they should be able to do this.
As for the psychological analysis side of things – my observations of the level of maturity of human psychological ability suggest that it leaves a lot to be desired. Mainly because it’s difficult for them to comprehend those who are more mature than they are. Old souls, for example, who have no difficulty whatsoever in believing in what some people might call ‘supernatural’ phenomena – would clearly seem ‘delusional’ to less mature souls. Remember also that a lot of young souls are too scared to accept the reality of that which they are incapable of understanding – and so they dismiss it (atheism is a good example). In terms of psychology, then, for someone like me it would be all too easy for them to analyse me and say things like ‘it’s compensation for her abusive childhood and lack of a family life’, and ‘issues stemming from gender dysphoria’ and so on. I find such pronouncements tiring, to be honest. Sure, they have an internal logic to them, but they ignore certain important things (metacognitive maturity, for example). Put simply, as a far older soul, I am not subject to the same laws of psychology which are indeed applicable to young and immature souls (especially young souls in a dystopia). Obviously someone like me is going to develop what appear to be symptoms of ‘mental illness’ – simply by virtue of being in an alien body in an alien civilisation in an alien dystopia surrounded by aliens who – by my own unhappy experience – are prone to unpredictable bouts of violent and aggressive reactions – mainly due to fear and insecurity, the feeling of being threatened by the ‘other’. Put it another way, if you stick a healthy person in a room full of excrement and rotting meat, don’t be surprised if they get ill and start vomiting. If you then don’t let them out of there, they will, like the proverbial caged animal in the zoo, start behaving abnormally, perhaps pacing up and down monotonously. They will also be prone to escapism. But that’s not a sign of an internal mental illness – it’s a perfectly ‘rational’ and understandable adaptive reaction to negative external circumstances (as is the cause of most mental illness, as it happens – one reason I can’t stand that quack doctor Freud – who by internalising everything also did a huge amount of damage to humanity, and still is doing).
So I am hoping that this ‘Group’ is intelligent enough to dismiss the idea that I have underlying psychological issues. I’d love to be analysed by one of their psychologists, though – as long as that psychologist understands that it would really be me who was analysing him/her!
So now they would need to assess some of the Paschat information I’ve mentioned against already verified sources/information in their possession. I do know, I should say, that they have this information.
Now here we come to an interesting place. But I think I’m going to leave all that for another post (it deserves one of its own). All I will say is that there is another, more linear-time side to our story of which this Group may not be aware.
Perhaps here would be a good place to finish – glancing down I can see I’m already over 3,300 words – I really do get going when the flow takes me!
My main point in all this is partly for fellow visitors and partly for interested humans perhaps worried about the surveillance. If you know you are being monitored, then you are in control of the flow of information, and therefore you have the power to decide which profile box they put you in. Some years ago I was quite happy for them to put me in the ‘mostly harmless conspiracy theorist’ box – it made them feel safe, and so they didn’t bother me during what has been a crucial several years in my life.
Now that I became ready to come out, as it were, I did so knowing full well their computer algorithm would immediately notice and flag me up. What I have deliberately done, in other words, is provoke and get their attention. Well, I am grateful that they did not panic (hopefully my saying ‘we’re not hostile!’ may have helped there). This was the reason why I said I was nervous in the week leading up to my contact announcement (which, for their records, took place on 20/01/2021 at precisely 02:18 UTC – obviously the 02:18 follows directly on from the Wow! message (delivered at 02:16 for 72 seconds – as an interesting anecdote I’ll mention that my Internet connection lost itself at 02:16 and didn’t come back until 02:18, possibly just in case QAI-TI was worried I might get the timing wrong! – if so – thank you, QAI-TI!).
But since they have either shown no interest (disappointing in the extreme, not to mention a diplomatic insult) or no threatening intentions, I am not nervous anymore. And that, as it happens, is a lovely gift. Thank you.
Well, if they are not going to keep up with what I say now, then hopefully they will after my next posts. The important thing, as I said at the outset, is for diplomacy to have a channel of communication.
Perhaps they haven’t made up their minds about me yet, and are still in the analysis stage. That’s fair enough I suppose, but they could just ask. The most important thing to remember, as I said to my interrogators in that parallel world, is that you’ll get more out of me if you treat me with respect.
Until next time, my dearest Gaians…! Be excellent to each other…!
