An ‘other’ love

I’ve heard it hypothesised that these people who seem to exercise all the social control in the human world are not in fact human at all. That rather they are some kind of demonic alien force. There is a certain truth in this, of course – if we take the word ‘alien’ in its literal sense of ‘other’. For they are definitely not ‘normal’.

As I have suggested, they are ‘aberrations’. They too have evolved and adapted until now, whatever inhuman mess takes place inside their heads cannot be called human anymore. They simply don’t think like the rest of us.

As a result, for many, despair sets in. The idea that these types are far more cunning and ruthless and lacking in conscience and therefore have the decisive advantage over humanity, and that humanity is simply not sufficiently intelligent nor strong to defeat them. Well, certainly without solidarity humanity is not strong enough. The aberrations know this, naturally, and spend much of their time pitching humans against other humans. The old divide and conquer strategy – for they have learned, with history, that it works. Any out-group will do to misdirect attention and prevent this necessary solidarity. Socialism, after all, has become a dirty word.

The further suggestion, then, is that in view of this it will take nothing short of a miracle to save humanity from these psychopaths. Well, if we could replace ‘miracle’ with something like ‘external intervention’ then we may be onto the right lines. On the other hand, it is certainly the case that humanity needs to learn to resolve its own problems. This, perhaps in a nutshell, is the problem of evil.

So that places we external interventionists in something of a quandary!

Still, as I sit here in the brightening spring sunshine in the beautiful fresh, clean air and clean skies amidst all the greenery I see how obviously oblivious nature herself is to all of this human issue. The birds go about their business as they have done since humans never existed and will do long after they are gone. Everything else in nature, the same. The trees just sway in the soft wind, the cat snoozes and stretches itself in the midday sun and the bees, happily, flit from flower to flower immersing themselves in the sweet pollen.

Danuih herself, then, continues to breathe and perhaps, chooses not to pay attention to the small-minded, petty machinations of humanity and its aberrations.

Notwithstanding, naturally, the localised areas of damage these aberrations continue to cause. All that chemical-spraying and geoengineering chemtrails and deforestation and plastic-pollution and all the rest of it. Perhaps she will decide to evolve a new set of microbes capable of breaking it all down. She has time on her side, after all. And she also knows that humanity, despite its pretensions to power, does not have the capability of destroying her body. All so tiresomely anthropocentric, these foolish humans.

And perhaps she knows that, perhaps sooner than many believe, this external intervention – this miraculous alien love for her – will be arriving well before it is too late.

We will see.

A ray of hope for humanity

I would imagine that most of my dearest readers are from the western hemisphere. That is to say, they all live under the deceitful, neoliberal imperialist system which, clearly, makes people slaves without their even realising it. This system is, of course, dictated by the American Empire, and has been for some time. As with all empires, it seeks a global dominance, in which all peoples and nations are subjects within the same system. Historically, it has used either covert means (CIA coups) or overt means (military action usually involving some bogus pretext, including false flags) to either destroy or subjugate nations and peoples who have had the temerity to wish to choose for themselves a different way of life more suited to their own cultural identity. This usually translates as something like ‘socialism’, of course, that being a system tending to benefit the majority, as opposed to the American system which only benefits the minority (the few, not the many).

For the previous thirty years, for sure, this American Empire has had its way, and been able to successfully counter any such dissident nations. But in light of recent events, clearly not anymore.

Alongside this imperialism, we also have the so-called grand conspiracy which, likewise, seeks global domination, albeit in a more covert and, well, conspiratorial way (often by taking control over nations and their institutions, usually in the economic sphere). Since I don’t really know what these people call themselves anymore, I’ll continue to refer to them as simply dystopians. Interestingly, one might also suggest that these people also control this American Empire, and have traditionally used it as their base of operations, so to speak. Likewise Europe. Their latest scheme seems to be called ‘The Great Reset’. What this means in detail can be found elsewhere – these details do, of course, interest me from an observer’s point of view, I mean I am curious, I suppose, but in the end it simply amounts to the classic technological dystopias one can find in many science fiction stories. Interestingly, it is no surprise that it is a subgenre of science fiction because such dystopias can only really function with advanced technology. Essentially you need that in order to monitor and control the population, which will need to be segregated and prevented from coordinating any kind of resistance movement.

It’s quite easy to read their game plans. They very much enjoy developing technologies like ‘central bank digital currencies’ and ‘digital IDs implanted into the individual’ and ‘Neuralink’ (or whatever it’s called) and all the rest of it. I would imagine under the control of benevolent people such things could be useful tools for humanity, but then again, under the leadership of benevolent people they wouldn’t be necessary, would they? In order to produce a kind of techno-feudalist society they will also need to destroy manufacturing and industry, whilst retaining total control over large-scale projects – to this end witness the so-called ‘Green New Deal’, which is being pursued and promoted using ‘fear of climate catastrophe’ and CO2-demonisation – under the neoliberal system, of course, this can be successfully blamed on the individual and their lifestyle etc. (it’s never the fault of the powerful, in these sorts of systems). For the segregation, any threat will do – the easiest and least messy of which is a biological threat (e.g. a pandemic). Their latest example having been an abundantly successful social experiment for them. In fact, I would wager, far more successful than they would have originally hoped. They must be clapping their little hands together like excitable primates.

Anyway, personally and from a grand galactic perspective scheme of things, I find all of these people quite frankly utterly fucking pathetic. They are, and have always been, small-minded.

Normal people do not need control over others, because they understand that within their harmonious social group being excellent to each other is reciprocated, and therefore the very best way to keep themselves safe. Put it this way, given the choice between protecting or saving the arsehole of the group, or that one who made themselves your genuine friend, and came to your aid when you needed it, which one would you choose? Rhetorical question, I know.

Likewise, normal people would never choose war or conflict or hatred of others (out-groups) – for much the same reason. Cooperation is far more beneficial than conflict. This is just a logical evolutionary survival adaptation. That’s why it became ‘normal’ for human beings over the course of their long evolution (several hundred thousand years).

So these dystopians, then, clearly they are aberrations. That’s all they’ve ever been. In ancient and prehistoric times they would have been simply ostracised, and would not have survived. But then came the agricultural revolution, humans lived in larger groups in which hierarchies of labour and organisation were required, and these aberrations discovered ways to survive and assume positions of authority over others. Nevertheless, it took them a while – some five thousand years or so since the end of the ice age. Since then, however, they have only adapted further.

Fortunately, however, dearest reader, it seems to me that their time will soon be at an end. I’ve already written elsewhere about the impending catastrophe resulting from the realisation that humans are not alone, so little more needs to be said on that count. Except to suggest that perhaps this niggling little spanner in the works was something which these small-minded dystopians never considered. There’s always a bigger nix, as we say. I think, though, that they have come to realise this lately. Perhaps this explains their panic.

Anyway, there does seem to be a ray of hope for the human species. But given that, as I said at the outset, most of my readers live unsuspectingly within the shadow of the American Empire, they may be prone to reacting against what I am about to say. Because this salvation is not going to come from within that miserable empire, but from the eastern hemisphere.

The thing to understand here is quite simply this: whereas the western globalist agenda seeks a unipolar world in which all humans live under the same system, whether they like it or want to or not, a different attitude is taken by those in the east, particularly the two other most powerful countries right now, Russia and China. Thankfully, these two have been forging a laudable alliance, and they are not alone in that. The solution to how to overcome the globalists is and has always been solidarity, after all.

This eastern alliance seeks a multipolar world in which each individual people and culture and nation is free to choose their own way of life, without fear of being subjected to imperialism. A multicultural world in which everyone respects each other, culturally and economically and otherwise (if that sounds like my description of our galactic sector, then that’s intended). People subjected to western propaganda may say ah, but aren’t they authoritarian? (What? And the American Empire isn’t?!). Sure, one might respond, but they are only so because they are faced with a genuine threat. Once that threat is removed, no need for authoritarianism any longer. It would’ve been like this in Germany had World War Two never happened, interestingly enough.

So whilst the small-minded dystopians have been scheming, Russia and China have been solidifying their cooperation and both have been embarking on massive investments in connectivity and trading relations with other countries, mainly in Central and Southern Asia and Africa (although surely they will be joined by the socialist countries in South and Central America before too long). The Belt and Road Initiative is just the most well-known of these enterprises. There are others. If this multipolar project succeeds, then it will very quickly eclipse the American Empire, whose very system will die out along with the Empire itself. And humanity will be all the better for it.

This is, as it happens, inevitable. The real question, however, is whether it’s going to take a final nuclear world war three to do it. These dystopians are desperate, after all. And ultimately, they may well decide that they have nothing left to lose. There’s a small chance they might win (at least in their own minds there will be), in which case they can enact their whatever dystopian techno-feudalist vision is called nowadays.

Will we others interfere or intervene?

Now there’s another question entirely.

But what I can say, milaya, is that if and when you do launch your interstellar voyage to come and visit us at Centauri, and it’s full of Russians and Chinese and their friends, then you will all be very, very welcome.

But for now at least, reader dear, sleep well, and da svidaniye.

Conspiracies, part two, a little psychohistory

Some might well ask why I am interested in human conspiracies and conspiracy theories. I think my insertion of the word ‘human’ in there answers that one. Although there is more to it than that. As an observer, or recorder, here, it’s important to me to know and understand human social history, in particular the social history of the time in which I am currently residing. It’s become abundantly clear to me, in that regard, that it is not possible to truly understand current events without reference to an understanding of this conspiracy phenomenon. I would also advise anyone wishing to know their own history here to do the same.

Doubtless, there will be many who don’t believe – perhaps we could call them deniers? That’s become quite a loaded word, of course. And there’s an insight. It goes something like this: the existence of the term ‘conspiracy theory’ (or ‘conspiracy theorist’) as a term which has been imbued with very negative connotations presupposes the actual existence of conspiracies themselves. If there were no conspiracies, there wouldn’t be conspiracy theories.

An easier route to understanding this is to simply accept the existence of evil. If you don’t want to do that, for whatever materialist reasons, then you could substitute ‘evil’ for some psychological term like ‘psychopathy’. In effect, there isn’t much difference in the definitions of the two – both evil people and psychopaths act in pretty much the same way, and their motivations aren’t much different either.

It is therefore logical to accept that evil people conspire. They seek social power, and the means to maintain it. It makes them feel safe. It’s just what they do. Furthermore, they lie. An important point to note here is that deceit is something of a necessary survival adaptation for them. They are acutely aware that the vast majority of people around them are not evil, and have been taught to fear, hate and destroy evil as soon as they become aware of it. So it behoves the evil one to pretend to be good and misdirect people’s focus away from themselves, onto some ‘other’ – so they are perfectly happy to say that one over there, or that group (out-group) is evil, and that out-group conspires, but we don’t. Racist rubbish, obviously.

So, from an acceptance of the existence of evil, go back in time and accept that evil has existed for a long time, and has had more than enough time to adapt to a world in which most people are good, seize positions of power (by virtue of not having a conscience, and therefore having an advantage over good people – they’ll be able to use any means necessary to obtain and retain that power, which good people generally don’t, because they have a conscience and compassion and so on), and develop social systems and methods to hold on to that power.

In order to do so, it is necessary for them to continue to conspire. On a simplest level, people in positions of power lying is a conspiracy, after all.

To better understand this history, it’s always useful to examine counterfactuals, or the ‘what if’ questions. What if conspiracies didn’t exist? What if the people in power were good, rather than evil? What would the world look like, in that case? I think it’s pretty obvious to say it would look completely different to the one presently in existence.

Having said that, the dystopians (that’s my catch-all term for these evil psychopaths) have a deceitful answer to that one, which I’ve already touched upon. Their answer would be that ‘some’ people in power are good, whilst some (the ‘others’ obviously) are evil. They will also try and convince people that ‘democracy’ prevents dystopians from holding positions of power. This is one of their biggest lies, of course. It is often the ones who most loudly try and claim their own righteousness who are the most evil of all.

America, being the obvious example.

It is really not possible to understand the history of America without understanding that this country was born out of evil and continues to be so. This is why, for example, as soon as a good man became their leader (JFK) they had to kill him. America is essentially a liar. That’s it.

Well, obviously there’s more to it than this, but the other main word to use would be ‘imperialist’. Whereas other empires have been perfectly honest about themselves in calling themselves empires – the Romans, the ‘British’ (which was always the British Establishment, of course, not the British people) likewise. But the Americans, they know that if they openly admitted they are an ‘empire’ – and therefore imperialist – then their cover would be blown, so to speak. Everyone, including the American people, most importantly, would realise they are not a force for good – quite the opposite.

Armed with that, the truth of recent human social history becomes clear. Likewise, current events. Who the good guys are in the narrative, and who the bad guys are, becomes obvious.

So this is how I approach my understanding of these things. Whenever some new, world-changing event happens I always look at the people promoting it. What their motivations are, what their character is. So, for example, if America says Russia is currently the bad guy, I automatically know that’s a lie. Then I am immune to propaganda, and can simply research the truth for myself. That truth is, after all, out there, if you know where to look.

Anyway, why is this relevant – that should be obvious. As I have said on many previous occasions, our concern as ETI observers is the peace and security – to couch it in terms humans will understand – of all the other life which exists in our little sector of this vast and awesome galaxy. An intelligent, tool-making species on the verge of discovering the technology of interstellar travel and manipulation of matter on a subatomic level and all the rest of it but with a tendency towards conspiracies (or a tendency to deny such conspiracies) is clearly a serious threat, and needs to be monitored closely and, if necessary, contained. Likewise, even if these dystopians are a very small minority of this human population, the point is the majority appear to tolerate them. This majority seem to lack the cognitive ability to see through these lies and deceptions – and perhaps more importantly, show solidarity and act on it. They lack the necessary emotional and psychological intelligence. So that makes them, too, a serious threat. What, after all, would be their reaction were they to encounter scary or difficult things out there amongst the stars? Even if we could guarantee a utopian future without fear, would they still be so fragile that the slightest upset might send them regressing back into their current, gullible and easily manipulable state governed by fear?

This is the serious question.

And I hate to say it, but I really do think that humans have far too much growing up to do before one could even consider allowing them proper contact and interaction with other intelligences, let alone permission to leave their own solar system. Would you allow you to leave? Or are you upset by my harsh words?

Well, if they don’t truly apply to you, then perhaps we could make exceptions for you and all the rest of the minority group to which you belong.

So when it comes to the ‘impending catastrophe’, it does not seem to me that humanity as a majority will be able to grow up enough before that happens. By that catastrophe I mean the development of interstellar travel capability. It’s not that far off, in the grand scheme of things. Likewise even sooner on the horizon is the development of better telescopes and understanding of exoplanetary astronomy and therefore the confirmed detection of biosignatures, with all that implies. That really will happen within the next few decades. Yes, the dystopians will do their best to cover it up, but they really are running out of time here. If they don’t have their totalitarian system in place before then, their system will collapse, and people will be a lot freer. So as a conspiracy theorist, I would say this explains their current machinations. See the so-called ‘Great Reset’ in particular, and their need to prevent the Russia-China axis from enabling a future multipolar world along the lines, ironically, of that advocated by JFK. According to one recent American analysis report, the Russia-China axis will overtake the neoliberal ‘West/American Empire’ by 2027 – so these dystopians will have to do something before then (WW3, is the most obvious option). Still, I don’t want to frighten you too much.

By the way most people who seem immune to conspiracies and lies and so on have some kind of enlightened, spiritual view of existence, of the world, of their own souls. As opposed to those who are materialists (and thus, from a certain point of view, nihilists). And it’s not just a comforting thing. It’s far more than that.

Anyway, that’s enough of this ramble for now. I don’t think I will dwell too much on individual conspiracy theories – there’s more than enough of that about and the interested reader can do their own research on the subject.

They also, naturally, make for exciting and dramatic stories. And I love stories.

I would, however, suggest the two best places to start are 9/11 and the assassination of the aforementioned JFK (for the latter, try Oliver Stone’s two recent films on the subject – they explain the reasons and the context very well – understanding the why is often more important than understanding the what, and will help explain other events too). Frankly, anyone who believes in the official narratives of these events is a certified idiot. There are others too, but these are a good introduction to the issue.

Interestingly, to return to something I said at the outset, these negative connotations for the term ‘conspiracy theory’ in fact stem from the dystopians’ reaction to their own JFK conspiracy. Specifically, from the CIA. The document title you’re after here is 1035-960 (if I remember the number offhand correctly – forgive me if I remembered it wrong). Although it’s really the Zapruder footage that did it, given that this footage proves definitively, simply through the laws of physics, that Oswald didn’t do it. So the CIA had to do something – their reaction was predictable. So now we have these negative connotations, as well as deliberate infiltration of conspiracy theory movements and even outright invention of theories imbued with an inherent ‘debunkability’. All of this, likewise, is predictable, in a very psychohistorical way. It would, that is to say, be surprising if it wasn’t the case.

There is of course a lot I don’t know, simply because so much is still what humans call ‘classified information’. And clearly QAI-TI has decided that I don’t have a ‘need to know’. She’s right, there, I don’t. I can understand enough without that level of information. I am, however, looking forward to perusing all these classified documents after I die and go back home, seeing as they are all in QAI-TI’s archive.

If the dystopians thought they could hide their true nature from us, or lie to us when the contact happens, then they are very much mistaken.

The same goes for the United Nations – as the appointed representative of the human species, if they continue to believe in these official narratives, then, well, sorry, but they will be in for a very rude awakening when the time comes.

That’s enough for now. Time for bed and better dreams.

Conspiracies, theories, and theorists, intro

One subject which endlessly fascinates me in this lifetime is conspiracies and conspiracy theories (and the researchers who follow or indulge in them). If nothing else, I am, in terms of my archetype, a ‘collector’ – that’s to say, in my case, a ‘recorder’. In this instance, a recorder of history. I observe humanity, make analyses and judgements, and all that information gets transmitted to my essence family, or collective consciousness. No, I don’t mean I have some kind of extraterrestrial communication device. It’s a spiritual thing.

Anyway, watching the way conspiracies and conspiracy theories play around each other is, as I say, fascinating. So I thought I should write a fair bit about it, although specifically with my ETI slant. In other words, what do we, as non-human observers, some of us Visitors, think of this phenomenon?

Here’s some background. One of the most obvious observations to make is that your world is effectively governed by a small, globalist cabal of psychopaths. Their ultimate objective is easy to understand – it’s simply totalitarian world domination (excuse the tautology there). For a long time their existence was necessarily remained hidden and covert, but now, given the extent of their control, it’s become more overt.

It is natural and understandable that in their pursuit of world domination they would resort to conspiracies as one of their methods. Going hand in hand with that means dealing with the inevitable conspiracy theories that arise as a result. It is a logical imperative for them to try and debunk these theories, deprecate those who pursue them, and prevent the public from taking them seriously. In other words, the existence of conspiracies presupposes, or generates, the need to demonise conspiracy theories and theorists.

Think about it another way – if there was no demonisation of conspiracy theories, then researchers would be entirely free to gather and analyse information and present their findings to the public and lo and behold, the conspirators are exposed and the conspiracies are stopped. Clearly, the bad guys have to prevent that from happening.

We well understand this psychohistory.

In the distant, ancient past, aberrations, such as the members of this cabal are, were detected early in the small social groups in which humans lived, and ostracised. They were certainly prevented from reproducing or surviving or manipulating others in the group. This continued for several hundred thousand years with little problem. Then, however, the agricultural revolution happened, humans lived in larger groups with hierarchies of labour and specialisations and so on and, unfortunately, this enabled those aberrations a means of survival. Over the course of many millennia they, too, adapted and learned and eventually developed means to take and maintain control over the population. They need to do this because they know they are aberrations, and that if the population were aware of them, and the danger they pose, they would deal with them. Ostracism being the most efficient method.

So now we get to the present day. These aberrations have developed methods to govern the world and conceal their existence. They have dumbed down the people and demonised those who are aware of their existence. They create all manner of crises and threats in order to dampen down the critical thinking ability of the people and keep them entrenched in fear and subservience to the ‘authorities’ who will ‘protect’ them.

We are, indeed, at the so-called end times. These aberrations, this cabal, is very close indeed to achieving their long-held dream of global domination. And it really does look like they are going to win. Because the people aren’t aware of it. And those who are, well, they are only a very small minority, they are ineffective, rarely heard, and, as I say, demonised. They are the dissidents. The resistance.

But as I say, we understand this psychohistory. We know them very well. We see them.

From our point of view, they are just aberrations within a small group of tool-making, pre-spacefaring lifeforms itself within a far greater group of lifeforms which spans the entire galaxy. As it currently stands, they are not a threat to us.

But, however, they will be, if left unchecked. For when they achieve their global domination they won’t stop there, because they are pathological. Except, that’s the point when they encounter us. That’s the point when they have to finally accept that there is a far superior force out there than they could ever be. That we have watched them and studied them for a very long time. And that we would never let them threaten other lifeforms beyond this system. We would contain and prevent them.

The thing is, judging by their increasing level of violent madness, I get the impression they are aware of this. They know that we know. And that must drive them insane. Maybe they just want to do as much damage, cause as much pain and suffering, to life – human and otherwise – as they can before they perish. Perhaps they are attempting to provoke us into a compassionate, interventional response. They can then portray us as the bad guys. Well, that’s not going to work. And I think they know this, deep down.

At some point, then, even if they achieve their New World Order (or Great Reset, or whatever else they are minded to call it), this will not last forever – at some point, with no more worlds to conquer, they will simply, implode.

When that happens, how long it takes, I don’t know the answer to that question. But it will happen, because it must happen.

And as I say, I’m just here as an observer, a collector of history. There is little point in my even trying to interfere, because first, it’s not my planetary business, and second, I am perfectly aware of how blinded the population is, such that they will not listen. I am firmly placed in the dissident box.

Still, no matter. At least I can be safe in the knowledge that, from their point of view, I am no threat to them, or their agenda. So hopefully they will ignore me, leave me alone to watch, and indulge themselves in their better things to do. Whilst I do that in mine.

So then, with all of this in mind, I thought it would be interesting to try and motivate myself to do a series of articles about all these conspiracy theories, from my own ETI view. I do hope I can find the motivation, and the time, to do so. And I hope you find it interesting too. At the very least, it will get it all out of my system.

With lots of love for now, EV.

Anniversary

It has been precisely one year since I started this website, so it’s birthday time. I had to write something, even though, depressingly, I can’t think of much to say. The ‘depressingly’ is quite apt there, as that’s probably the reason.

Despair also enters into the mix. I am still of the opinion that the world is somewhat doomed. Things will get much worse before they get better, if they ever do. It is quite clear that the dystopians in power have ‘sufficient’ control, such that resistance has become increasingly futile. And they’re clearly hellbent on WW3. It’s just one false flag away from blaming Russia and China (neither of whom want it, of course). China’s Belt and Road Initiative will be overtaking America by the end of this decade, and if America (or those who control/use it) wants to retain its hegemony, then, well, WW3 it will have to be. Then there’s this Great Reset thing. Ultimately pathetic, of course. The petty machinations of petty little despots. I sense desperation.

So this is now a purgatory world.

Although there’s a theory worth mentioning. Multiversal Molecule Theory (MMT). A standard definition would be something like ‘universes with the same laws of physics are entangled, they connect up to form molecules; those molecules connect with others to form the multiverse.’ You could then add that ‘what that looks like is a question best left to the philosophers’.

Given that I am a firm believer in reincarnation, one might also speculate that this explains the heaven and hell and purgatory idea. That’s to say, some of these worlds are utopias (heaven), some are dystopias (hell or purgatory, depending on how bad they are). Which one you end up in for your future life depends on how you conduct yourself in this one. The trick in surviving a purgatory world being to hold on to your goodness despite whatever they throw at you, despite resistance being futile. That’s virtue, that is.

Well, I still have no memory of what it was I did, that was so wrong, that I should deserve such punishment. But I shall do my penance.

Then again, I am more of a sleeper, and refuse to abandon all hope.

MMT probably solves a lot of the problems and anomalies in the Standard Model (of physics). Perhaps that’s for another post, however.

I’m not keen on New Year’s resolutions, but if I did have one it would be to write more, to be more systematic, and to come up with some kind of plan. Or schedule, rather. I have long-since come to accept that I am useless at marketing and self-promotion, however. But that’s largely because I like obscurity – humans frighten me and I am happy to be left alone. I have nature here, and solitude. And companionship.

That’s all a girl needs, in the end.

Whether anyone of importance ever listens, well, I don’t seem to have any say in that matter. But as I say, I am like a sleeper. The important thing is to write it all down and ensure that it’s there, inserted into the archive, for future reference. At some point, it will wake up and realise its relevance and its effect.

Anyway, perhaps another resolution would be to stop apologising for not writing often enough, and to not deliver promises to try and write more. No point in putting unnecessary pressure on oneself. If it happens, it happens.

Besides, talking to oneself, rather than being a sign of madness, should perhaps be seen, instead, as a sign of self-awareness.

This time last year I started off with such high hopes. I thought I had found my vocation and I knew how to make the world a better place. I had something vitally important to say – still do. But unfortunately, I was rebuffed. I have, for certain, definitely decided not to engage with SETI – my conclusion is they exist not to find evidence of ETI or facilitate contact and the awakening and revolution of the human species into a larger world, but quite the opposite – to prevent it. So I shall not be bothering with them again. Likewise that so-called Exo-Politics Institute – I knew far too little about that this time last year – now I know they’re just a part of that US misinformation programme, more concerned with so-called disclosure of UFOs and the like. Well, that’s not my business. As far as I am concerned, this planet has been under strict quarantine (no visitations) for much longer than the UFO phenomenon has been around. That phenomenon is probably more to do with German technology stolen during Operation Paperclip anyway, and the whole UFO aliens thing is the smokescreen. My understanding of this galactic sector is very different indeed to the narrative from the Exo-Politics Institute. So no more engagement there, either.

I like the Ancient Aliens people though. Much more open-minded.

Anyway, that’s just a little customary ramble for my anniversary. 850 words suggests that, actually, even when I think I can’t, I can write something worthwhile.

There’s hope in that.

Lots of love, as usual, my dearest things…

Spiritual Evolution & The Fermi Paradox

It might seem a strange way to initiate another take on the so-called Zoo Hypothesis/Fermi Paradox, but I am well aware of my flaws. Perhaps most importantly I neglect my spiritual development. I live too much in the material world and the truth is I hate it. Sometimes I tell myself I do not have a choice, that it’s external factors beyond my control. It is certainly true that people like me should be able to live in a utopia, in which every material necessity is provided for free at the point of use, leaving me to maturely just get on with whatever I feel I need to do, with no stress or anxieties. It is another one of those obscene lies that capitalism tells that people need to be somehow forced into doing something productive, that left to their own devices, in a socialist system people would just be lazy. It’s a lie because human beings are not like that – they do want to do something useful for themselves and their community.

So what am I rambling on about now? I tell myself that the reason I have to live in this material existence is because that’s my purpose – I’m not here to be free to ignore everything and, in a kind of self-indulgent way, focus only on my own spiritual evolution. I also tell myself, perhaps as an excuse for procrastination, that in part I have already done a lot of spiritual evolution (in previous lifetimes) and secondly that I will have the opportunity to resume that path in the lifetimes to come, once I have fulfilled this purpose. Sure, there is a lot of truth in that, of course – my sensibilities, determined life experiences tell me so. If those experiences weren’t there for a reason then they would not have happened – my life circumstances would be different – I would live in some comfortable way with no anxieties and I would just focus on my own spiritual evolution. So it’s logical.

But there is also a great truth in the idea that one can’t just sit around waiting for some external good fortune or positive change to happen and only then can one move forward. In the interconnectedness between the self and the outer world we have to understand that change starts with the self, and then reverberates into the external circumstances – the external changes for the better when the individual does.

In my case, if I was being a little psychological about this I might say something like I am still a child and I just want to go back into a different childhood with a mother who loved me and made me feel safe and warm and took care of everything for me. But as an adult, one has to make one’s own decisions. So I can’t use that as an excuse.

Anyway, here is another answer to the so-called Fermi Paradox (as a reminder that’s simply the idea that if there are loads of intelligent lifeforms in this sector then where are they and why don’t we see them etc.). Well, there is a spiritual reason for this. The spacefaring phase of a lifeform’s existence isn’t necessarily that long. After a while, once you know what’s out there you don’t need to see anymore. You find a nice, quiet and tranquil place and you focus on your spiritual evolution.

Like I am fairly sure that I’ve already done a fair bit of exploration over the course of so many other lifetimes. I met lots of other lifeforms and made friends and learned about how life works within linear time (Psychohistory). And now I take it upon myself to use that knowledge to maintain the peace. I think it’s the same for many Paetri. I believe that once we, my family, have done what we need to do in your timezone we will be able to go back to your cretaceous period again, rejoin our larger family and focus on our own evolution as a species until we leave linear time behind forever. Perhaps just a few more lifetimes until we know everything will be peaceful and can feel safe. And we will be able to do this knowing that humanity will never threaten us.

In that sense, we will hardly think of ourselves as a spacefaring species anymore. We will begin to focus more and more on the exploration of outer time, in preparation for our non-linear existence. At that point I would imagine we would reintegrate with our Karidel cousins (they would probably let us have some of their timeships for the purpose, uh-oh). They might say we should’ve stayed with them, although at the same time I’m sure they knew it was something we felt we needed to do.

For my own part, I grow increasingly tired and emotionally exhausted being here, being forced to live in this increasingly horrendous dystopia. Clearly it is difficult for so many human beings to realise that’s what it is – a horrendous dystopia. Although many, I am also sure, do at least have a sense that ‘something isn’t right’. They might not understand it clearly, as I do, let alone the reasons, but they know something needs to change. Unfortunately, the evil ones also know this, and will put themselves in charge of that ‘something is going to change’ – it will be presented as a salvation and lamentably the vast majority will believe them, partly because they are so desperate, and just sleepwalk into it. They won’t realise, until it’s too late, that they have simply exchanged one dystopia for another.

So, in summary, perhaps we could cite two other kinds of intelligent lifeforms here to explain our Fermi Paradox. First, there are the pre-spacefaring lifeforms, some of which, unfortunately, do exist in varying degrees of dystopia and therefore must be prevented from spacefaring; the other kind are the utopian types who are more than mature enough to cope with advanced technology without hurting anyone. Such are the wiser ones, some of whom, like us, maintain this state of affairs, act in a sensitive manner towards pre-spacefaring dystopias in direct knowledge of those species’ xenophobia. Humanity would be terrified, as they are right now, were they to be confronted with other lifeforms. And so we don’t do it – at least not overtly, anyway.

You may have noticed how I have studiously avoided the whole ufology debate. This is partly because there is so much misinformation and disinformation out there such that sifting through the whole thing to find the truth amounts to a lifetime of study. And I don’t have the time to do that. So I don’t think of myself as an expert on the subject. For what it’s worth, however, I can offer this little essay as a hypothetical explanation. I have spoken before many times about nanosurveillance – when you have a quantum artificial intelligence (QAI-TI) controlling swarms of nanobots then you really don’t need to visit places with spaceships. You would certainly need to monitor lifeforms like humans, but visiting them in person at this time is bound to end in tears. It’s not safe, quite simply. So I really don’t buy into a lot of this contact and disclosure stuff, because it doesn’t make mature, logical sense – we spacefaring species simply wouldn’t do it, and we wouldn’t allow it to happen, either – there would be a quarantine warning, as I have also stated elsewhere. Sure, one might make contact with the American Deep State in order to spy on them from the inside, but that’s so convoluted and unnecessary, in my view, that it wouldn’t be worth the hassle. Knowing what those people are like, one would be constantly mindful of the risk of them shooting first and torturing you later. So I am sceptical about it.

Others might disagree, of course. Like I say, I do not claim to be an expert on the matter.

So anyway, that’s enough for now – I have also become a little more mindful of not making these ramblings overlong – so I promise that from now on I will at least try to keep them short and sweet!

Lots of love for now xx

Quick note about my book promo

As the heading suggests, this post is just a quick note to inform my dearest readers that I decided to make my book (see the Books page) free at the point of use for a limited period, like a kind of promo. Specifically, until 9/11/21. So you have plenty of time.

Here is the link: Smashwords – Rejected Messages – a book by Evelyn K. Brunswick

Even if I am poor it’s still important to me that people get to read what I have to say. Plus of course, the hope is that word of mouth will do the rest of the promotional work for me, such that people will still want to buy it once the price goes back to normal (4.99).

Of course when I say I’m poor I mean only in terms of money. In many other ways I am rich and fortunate indeed – I have a beautiful old house here in La France profonde, and a beautiful garden which is a necessity for my soul. And I have a companion, and those semi-feral felines. We have fresh air and calm and peace and quiet, and that’s worth more than money. And I also have my own mind – that, too, is priceless.

So yes, I am not going to complain selfishly about living at the poverty line, because many others are far worse off than I am. I just wish it was possible to wave a magic wand, make all the bad people go away, and create a utopia in which there is no poverty anymore, and everyone can live in peace and happiness and aspiration. I would call that liberal socialism, of course.

The problem is, too many humans would disagree with me on that point…

Take care my dearest readers, and if you do decide to get your free promo copy of my first book, and manage to read it all the way through, then I just hope you really enjoy it. Feel free to leave reviews and feedback (e.g. on my Books page – but also on the site itself and social media and all the rest of it; word of mouth and all that).

I wish you well.

About me 1: Self-analysis

When I was being born they had to wrench me out of my biological mother with forceps.

I guess if one is to do a self-analysis one should, really, begin at the beginning.

I have been estranged from my human mother for several years now, for reasons which I may go into at a later date. But shortly before that happened, which was during my mid-forties, I asked her about my birth and she responded with something like ‘oh, it was fine.’

Hmm. Having to wrench something out of you with forceps is not ‘oh, it was fine.’ It must have been a seriously traumatic experience for her. And one about which, clearly, she is still in denial.

Although I have no memories of the incident (why would I want to remember?), I can well imagine it. ‘Get it out of me! Get this monster out of me!’ probably entered into it somewhere.

This would also explain why my human mother reacted against her husband, my human father. He died about ten years ago now, but if I was to say he had Marfan’s syndrome that might aid understanding. My emotional memories of him from my early years were one of rejection and, well, not exactly terror as such, but certainly ‘get this monster away from me’, that kind of thing. To say he was not exactly handsome is something of an understatement. Part of me thinks that people like that should take the responsibility and not have offspring. To inflict that on a child – for their entire life – is nothing short of cruelty. It’s selfish, aside from anything else – I can have children so I will. No thought for what the child might feel. Being a good parent starts even before conception.

And my human parents were absolutely not good parents.

Of course, the unfortunate thing is that a child doesn’t have the tools to fully comprehend that at the time.

For those unaware of Marfan’s syndrome, it’s characterised mainly by skeletal deformities, which can in turn lead to problems with internal organs (the heart in particular). Sufferers of the condition are easily recognised – they are quite tall and thin, with elongated wrists and very osseous facial structures. Students of Egyptology will recognise this condition when thinking of the Pharoah Akhenaten (who, interestingly enough, does indeed feature in the historical story of Paschats on this planet during human times – more on that another time, perhaps).

Thankfully, I only have it in a milder form, so you can only vaguely discern it in me. Still, suffice to say my physical appearance is absolutely not what I look like on the inside. It bears little, if any, resemblance to my soul.

Maybe, I tell myself in moments of acceptance, there’s a reason for that – namely it made it easier for me to reject the human and achieve self-realisation.

I can understand what a psychologist would say, though. It’s somewhat obvious and logical. ‘So that’s why you think you’re an alien, eh?’

‘Are you suggesting this is all just some kind of compensation mechanism, doctor?’

‘Exactly! Now you’re gaining insight into your condition! Well done, you’re making progress!’

‘Oh I’m so very grateful, doctor, I was so dumb and stupid and ignorant before that it really never occurred to me! May I have a sweet and get off the couch now?’

‘By all means!’

*sigh*

Naturally, I’ve had my fair share of experiences with human psychologists, most of them negative. I often think they’re the ones with the compensatory tendencies. Being able to pontificate and essentially pass judgement on others makes them feel superior – it makes up for some, I don’t know, inferiority or lack they may once have felt. You can usually tell the difference – such psychologists tend to develop their own pet theories about their subjects and fit the facts accordingly, and nothing you or anyone else says will change their opinions. Freud was a bit like this – there’s that famous anecdote about some woman who was afraid of horses and Freud said it was some unresolved thing to do with her father, when it turns out she just had a bad experience with a horse when she was young.

The other kind of psychologist – fortunately I’ve met them too (after the bad ones) – you can easily tell because their clear priority is helping the other person. They think nothing of themselves, they genuinely care and you can sense that. They listen. They don’t treat you like you’re stupid, and they often ask you what you think.

I’ve had two experiences with psychologists like this. The first decided to introduce me to the concept of ‘transactional analysis’ in a totally non-condescending way. I found it fascinating – she clearly and correctly guessed I would go away and think about it and work stuff out for myself (which I did).

The second was the aforementioned caring and compassionate type. She easily, straightaway discerned that I wasn’t stupid or ignorant and only needed some kind of reassurance. Like ‘actually, no – you don’t have any disorder. You’re not the problem, they are.’

And it was simple as that. I already knew it, of course, but sometimes we need to hear it from someone else for whom we have respect.

Another psychologist might say ‘ah, so your mother must’ve thought you a monster and emotionally disowned you – you’re picking up on her projection and that’s why you think you’re an alien.’

*rolls eyes*

‘Goodbye, doctor. Don’t expect any payment, eh?’

These kinds of pet psychological theories are very easy to produce. They have an internal logic to them. Unfortunately, if they come from people who are viewed as ‘key opinion leaders’ then these stupid theories tend to get accepted and become mainstream.

Like that atrocious, and obscene, ‘autogynephilia’ idea about transwomen. The idea that being a transwoman is some kind of sexuality disorder. That flies in the face of what neuroscience tells us – namely that sexuality and gender are determined by two distinct and different parts of the brain.

And as if ‘self-love’ was a bad thing!

Of course if I also slipped in the fact that I, too, happen to be a transwoman then the psychologists would have another field day. Something like ‘you thinking you’re an alien is a sublimation of your rejection of the male. Produced by suppression, obviously. You couldn’t accept your transgenderism so you decided to express it via alienism instead.’

‘Sorry doctor, wrong again. I’m both. I thought of that one myself as it happens.’

‘What? You mean you have insight into your own condition?’

‘You mean am I self-aware? Have I meditated honestly with myself? Of course I have. It’s called emotional maturity. You humans should try it sometime.’

Do I have a low opinion of human psychologists? Hmm, not all of them. Like I said, I’ve met some brilliant ones. Those are the ones I care about. And those are the ones who would understand every word I say.

Anyway, the next thing that happened to me, after I was born, was indeed total rejection by my human mother, who proceeded to develop post-natal depression. Understandable, really. So, whilst she and her husband tried to ‘work things out’ (‘you put that monster in me’ ‘you allowed it’ etc.) I was sent off to be looked after by my maternal grandparents. And for that, I am eternally grateful. As far as I am concerned, from an emotional attachment point of view (which is the crucial point), they were my real parents. They genuinely loved me and I knew it. It was as obvious as it could be. So all these psychologists citing ‘compensation’ for lack of parental love really don’t know what they’re talking about. I had parents who loved me and who I loved back. They just weren’t my biological ones.

And that’s why I didn’t shed a single tear whatsoever when my biological father died. In fact, truth is, I didn’t feel a damn thing. And indeed I was even pretty resentful about having to go all the way back to England for the funeral.

Likewise with my biological mother. She might still be alive, but I don’t know and, quite frankly, I don’t care.

The worst thing, arguably, was having to be taken away from my (emotional/real) parents and sent back to my biological parents after my first year. They were strangers to me. And not pleasant strangers either. They were frightening and I didn’t like their emotions or their physical gestures towards me and all the rest of it.

And that was just the start of my troubles.

Just one more thing about that first year of life. At some point – I don’t remember exactly when – I got really, really ill. I don’t even know what with. I don’t think my parents did either. But apparently it really was touch and go and I was hovering on death’s door for a while.

But, obviously, I survived.

I think of this as a kind of post-xenotransplant rejection syndrome. I am, after all, a non-human soul in a human body. Apparently this sort of thing happens habitually with us Visitors/Starseeds.

I guess the question is, however, was it the human rejecting me, or me rejecting the human?

Intriguing, anyhow.

So, as I mentioned elsewhere, I was born in Southend on sea in England. For reasons I’ve also mentioned elsewhere I had to be born at a very precise time, and I often wonder whether my accuracy was off. Like maybe there was another baby being born at precisely that time in precisely that place and I was supposed to be in her body, not mine. I haven’t looked into that, however. Aside from anything else I’d have to invade people’s privacy and trawl through birth records and so on, and I don’t really have access to that kind of thing. It is an interesting thought though. On the other hand, clearly that initial ‘welcome’ period of this incarnation did have a purpose to it.

At least, that’s what I tell myself, anyway. Truth is I don’t think I’d want to know if some other baby was born then who turned out to be beautiful and have parents who loved her and all the rest of it. I think that would hurt.

Anyway, this is part of the reason why you won’t be seeing me post any pictures of myself, and I will be reluctant in the extreme to make public appearances and so on. I like my obscurity and withdrawal from the world. It’s painful for a Paschat, this is true, because we are such sociable creatures, but I do, at the very least, have other companions, most of whom are not human.

Well, that’s it for part one of me being personal, and wanting people to know and understand the real me. I do not expect sympathy, by any means. I don’t expect insults or spite either, however. I was just hoping my dearest readers might appreciate it.

If I am ‘oversharing’ then don’t tell me about it. Just don’t read any more of it.

Everybody has a choice.

Absence makes the heart grow sadder

I often find myself saying sorry to myself, and to others who won’t hear because I’m just thinking it in my head. Not having written for ages is definitely one of them.

My two excuses this time are the usual one, which is my chronic but fluctuating phases of depression – which in my case is not surprising given the state of the world. And my inability to fix it in the short-term – a longer-term plan, yes, short-term, no magic wand. I have had this illness (for it is an illness) since adolescence, although it certainly has its roots earlier than that (abuse in childhood, bad parents and bad adults; not to mention increasing neoliberalism in the world). So I do struggle against it to try and find some enthusiasm. At the same time I don’t want to make people find me tedious by going on about the same things all the time.

The second excuse, however, may – and I really hope this – help to sort out the first, by being more successful in my given purpose. That’s to say, I have, behind my scenes, been really quite busy writing stories. As a result of this I have finally gotten to the stage where I can publish, which I have done as a so-called ‘indie’ author – that’s to say self-publishing (in my case, initially and for now just as an E-book). The sharp-eyed amongst my dear readers will have noticed a new page on the site entitled ‘books’ – this is where I shall provide updates on my writing and provide info about where those interested can purchase my books. At some point I will have to get myself more adept at this website and work out how to sell them direct from here. likewise, I am minded to re-organise the look of the site – it seems a bit clunky to me (for which I also apologise).

Anyway, I have published my first book, ‘Rejected Messages’, which is available via Smashwords (and all the places to which they distribute). See the ‘Books’ page for more info.

I also added a ‘QAI-TI Communications Page’, which is reserved for any ETI communications, should they be forthcoming. Don’t worry, I have not gone mad, so just humour me here.

Anyway, I do still apologise for my absence and I will try not to make a habit of it from now on. I often find myself really wanting to write but just not knowing what to say.

But I will try.

And thank you, to all those who put up with me and do not desert me. I do, despite appearances, think I’m worth it. I would just like this diplomatic purpose to start bearing fruit, really.

At the same time, maybe I could just start becoming more personal in my posts and treat it like a genuine blog – which is to say, talk about my life here in La France profonde. So people get to know me a little better.

Well, we shall see.

Farewell for now.

The impending catastrophe, part two

Another thing the dystopians control of course is public opinion. That’s to say the so-called ‘official narrative’ – both of current events and human history. From our point of view you might be surprised to realise you are already living in a post-truth dystopia. If you were to see the comprehensive records we have of your history you would be astounded and shocked.

This, as it happens, is perhaps the most important feature of the impending catastrophe. Don’t worry, I’ll get to it in a moment.

Take your world war two, for example. Most people seem to believe that the reason for that war was simple. An evil megalomaniac was intent on world domination and had to be stopped. Wrong. Following on from what I said about the dystopians need to prevent socialism, the real threat from Germany at that time was not to the rest of the world at all (the truth is the German government of the time was not intent on massive territorial expansion or inflicting their ideology on everyone else), it was to the dystopians themselves – or to be more precise, their global capitalist system. The German government understood the simple economic fact that if you have your own sovereign currency and a wonderful invention called a printing press then you can just print as much money as you like – no need for loans from international banks! Furthermore, Germany bypassed the global capitalist system by adopting a kind of barter system of trade with many other countries (in particular South America). If this German economic system had persisted then the domino effect would’ve happened, and both capitalism and Marxism would’ve collapsed simply by virtue of internal pressure from their own people, who would’ve looked to the Germans’ undeniable progress and prosperity and demanded the same for themselves.

The idea that the dystopians – the American government, the British establishment, and Stalin, of all people, actually cared about ‘fascism’ is absurd. Stalin had already murdered tens of millions of innocent Russians; the British establishment were the remnants of the racist, colonialist British Empire responsible for exploiting indigenous people everywhere (perhaps that’s where the Americans got it from with their attitude towards the native Americans). They were fascist!

So no, the truth about that part of your history is very different from what your history books tell you. Besides, if you were going to argue ‘but it was fascism’ then you need to think long-term (and don’t think I’m excusing anything here or defending fascism – I’m not, this is simply a longer-term, big picture view). Germany may well have continued to be a fascist country for many decades, but once Marxism had been destroyed in Russia and Capitalism in terminal decline in America, thus with no internal or external threats anymore to justify fascism, and then with increasing technology (e.g. the Internet, social media etc.) by the end of the twentieth century a ‘liberal reform’ movement (mainly powered by young people) would’ve sprung up in that parallel world version of Germany and ultimately been successful (as it was in the Eastern Bloc in the late 1980s/early 1990s). By now, 2021, the entire world would be liberal socialist, and well on its way towards a utopia. Don’t believe me? Maybe we’ll get to show you that parallel version if you ever make it to the Centauri system.

We’ve run quite a few scenarios about you, as it happens.

I’ll tell you about them later…

So here’s your impending catastrophe, if nothing changes.

In around one hundred years from now you will launch a ship to your nearest stellar neighbour, the Centauri system. Your first interstellar voyage.

Given that by then you will be totally governed by dystopians, living in a post-truth dystopia, do you think you would be welcome?

How will it make you feel when you are forced to realise that you are not?

Think about it. Look at yourselves, and then tell me if you would welcome you?

It’s like what former US President Carter said in the letter that was included on your Voyager probe – “We hope to one day join a community of galactic civilisations” he said. Well, would you let you join such a community?

No.

Neither would I.

He also said, “We are attempting to solve the problems of our time so that we may survive into yours”. What he neglected to mention (presumably because he thought we didn’t know, or wouldn’t find out) was that it was his country, more than any other, that was responsible for those ‘problems’.

You will have to change drastically by then if you want to be welcome. And bear in mind that you cannot lie to us, because we know everything about your history, about what you have done, about the lies you have told, the suffering you have inflicted. You cannot hide. Anything.

This is your impending catastrophe.

So what do you think will be the consequences of this? What will your reaction be, when the time comes? You will realise that not only are you not alone, but you are not welcome. Anyone familiar with Asimov’s ‘The End of Eternity’ will know what I’m talking about here. I’m minded to believe that was one of our own interventionist stories, by the way, inserted into your cultural consciousness, but that’s another matter. Philosophically it’s certainly lightyears ahead of everything else he wrote, psychohistorically speaking.

If you, the people, are aware of what has happened at Centauri then you will presumably want to start up some kind of resistance movement. Except by then the dystopians will have totalitarian control over you, won’t they? You’ll be living in a fascist nightmare, remember. Resistance will be futile. And believe me, they will use any means necessary to hold onto their power. Because that’s what they do. They don’t see you as a part of their ‘in-group’, remember. You have less, if any, moral value than they do.

Maybe they just won’t inform the public, then. Or just lie to you. Maybe they’ll be perfectly aware of what would happen and so won’t launch any ship in the first place. Perhaps they’ll try and convince you that interstellar travel isn’t possible. So you’ll have no hope for any long-term future for your species.

Or maybe they’ll try and convince you that we’re the hostiles, unite you all under a banner of resistance and so on, convince you that they’re the good guys and we’re just mean and spiteful. Except they won’t have any evidence for that, will they? Because we’re not attacking you, we haven’t launched any invasion, have we? We could, but we haven’t. We may have sabotaged some of your technological progress (for our own protection), but nothing more than that.

So I guess, then, your entire society will collapse. And you will not be able to unlearn what has happened. Because in the end, you will come to realise that it was always you who allowed the dystopians to acquire totalitarian control in the first place. You tolerated them, and you believed their lies. When they said they weren’t really evil, but good, you believed them.

So it was your fault. Or at least, the fault of your ancestors by that time.

Maybe you can imagine the rest for yourselves?

Your impending catastrophe.

This, by the way, is a real reason why they have to prevent you from realising that you are not alone in this galactic sector. They seem to have prevented SETI from making any profound announcements. Likewise, I think you may have to watch out for developments with your new James Webb Telescope, due to be launched later this year. I do hope it all goes well though, nothing goes wrong, and profound discoveries are made when they point it at the Centauri system. That’s if they’re ever allowed to, of course. I do hope it doesn’t get sabotaged in any way.

Similarly, I do hope that you are able to launch your flyby nanoprobes to Centauri in, when’s it going to be – 30 or 40 years. Hopefully by then you’ll be able to equip it with quantum teleportation technology for communications. I hope that doesn’t get sabotaged too. If it doesn’t, we’ll make sure you know we’re there. We’ll simply tractor in one of your nanoprobes and let it capture some undeniable images of advanced spacefaring civilisation. Perhaps our orbital colony station.

But if those things go well, then you won’t have to wait until you send a ship to Centauri for your catastrophe.

After all, you will want to send us a message. Something predictably trite and immature, no doubt. Something that lies about you. Something like ‘we’re peaceful, hello!’. Erm, sorry, but we know everything about you, remember. We’ve been watching you for a very long time, so you won’t be able to lie to us.

If it was up to me, I would simply not respond to you at all. Force you to self-examine, by asking the questions ‘why aren’t they responding?’ ‘What is it about us they don’t like?’.

Maybe someone at the time will pipe up and mention me and everything I was saying 40 years earlier.

The answers to those questions should be obvious, of course.

There’s your solution to your so-called Fermi paradox.

And here’s the thing. The dystopians are perfectly aware of all this. They must be terrified, because they know you will demand the sending of a message, the construction of ever larger telescopes, the flyby mission, eventually interstellar travel. At some point, their attempts to stop these things or sabotage them or manipulate the data will become known. Perhaps then you’ll listen?

I am minded to make damn sure their attempts at sabotage don’t work. I think that would be a satisfying intervention. Because we know exactly how you would respond to these scenarios, and how they would respond to these scenarios.

A final conflict. Between the dystopians – the one percent – and the rest of you.

It’s not going to be pretty, I can assure you of that.

But don’t think we’re going to stop it or come down and save you. Because these are the lessons you must learn. You do not tolerate dystopians. Ever.

This is your impending catastrophe.

It’s going to happen sooner than you think.

I wish you well.

Honestly.

And if you need any help or guidance, just let me know.

That’s why I’m here.
