Introduction to Open Diplomacy

In our galactic sector we conduct diplomacy openly. That is to say what you might call the general public are never prevented from knowing what’s going on. Obviously not everyone is interested, but those who are will always have access. This way, if any so-called player in the game, so to speak, were to behave in a deplorable, selfish, or uncivilised way, then they would have to face the public’s reaction to that.

This, however, is never a problem. Perhaps precisely because diplomacy is conducted openly. It provides a deterrent, in other words. Mind you, all the spacefaring civilisations of which I am aware are psychosocially and emotionally mature anyway, and have a habit of considering the other party’s interests as much as their own, without having to be prompted to do so.

It seems to me that this is even more important here on Gaia. When diplomacy is conducted on Gaia it is invariably behind closed doors, and the public only get to see the end result. Thus, for example, if one side makes unreasonable demands there is no public reaction to force them to behave reasonably.

The fundamental, psychological, or psychosocial reasoning behind this is the simple fact that the majority of human beings are good people. They know the difference between good and evil, between reason and unreason, and would inevitably react strongly and forcefully on their own behalf if a diplomatic representative was behaving against their interests. Thus, for example, if I was to make a justified, reasonable demand, which is then rebutted by the other party for selfish reasons, then my next move would be to make a strongly worded and sufficiently publicised public statement, informing the people of the actions of that other party. The public would then, one hopes, put strong pressure on the other party to act unselfishly and do the right thing. This, in a sense, could also be seen as democratic diplomacy, given that those diplomats are supposed to represent their people.

The other, related, justification is found in the concept of game theory. One of the great failings of some game theoretical thinking is the underlying assumption that each player in the game is, in trying to maximise their own outcome, attempting to gain some kind of advantage over the other player. This assumption pits both players against each other from the outset, before negotiations have even begun, making it far harder for both of them to arrive at a mutually beneficial agreement.

What seems to me the clear and obvious solution to this is for both players to discard this antagonistic approach and cooperate for mutual benefit. In this way they will both increase their potential outcome considerably. The chances of both of them maximising their outcome are, potentially, doubled.

This, clearly, can only be accomplished through open diplomacy.

During the course of my diplomatic mission, then, it goes without saying that I shall always be practicing open diplomacy, meaning I will endeavour to keep the public fully informed at all times, at all points in the process.

And of course my saying this in advance, in public, is itself open diplomacy.

That too is game theory, after all.

For we Paschats, metacognition, cognitive (or metacognitive) empathy and game theory come naturally and instinctively to us.

To finish, an example with regards to the concept of ‘mutual assured destruction’ via nuclear exchange, which I studied quite closely when I was preparing the analysis report prompted by your Voyager probe’s golden record. That is to say, if player one fires nuclear weapons at player two, player two fires back and this hurts player one. Their ‘mutually assured destruction’ becomes the deterrent.

There is, however, a great flaw in this. What is commonly unrecognised in this concept is that this event comprises not one, but two moves. Player one fires first but then the game is paused. Player two has a clear decision to make – retaliate, or not retaliate. It should be clear that not retaliating is the better – indeed, the only – move to maximise outcome. Player one, having launched an unprovoked attack, has committed genocide. The goodness of normal human beings effects the predictable reaction, and player one – the named person who gave the order (let us say for instance the President of the United States) exposes himself to the entire world to be evil. If he does even make it down to his bunker in one piece, he would never be allowed out again. Thus, he personally suffers the ultimate retaliation, and his people are spared. If, however, player two fires back, then neither side are any good, and player one effectively ‘gets away with it’.

What should be the obvious solution to this, then, is for player two to inform player one of his move before player one makes his decision. Put simply, ‘we will never retaliate. In fact, we are decommissioning our nuclear weapons immediately. if you fire at us, you will be committing genocide on a defenceless people, and the world’s population will avenge us on you personally. So there is only one move left in this two move game, Mr. President, and that move is yours. Make your choice.’

If player one wishes to maximise his outcome, then his only option is to not fire. Better still, to also decommission his nuclear weapons and spend all that money on something a bit more emotionally mature instead.

Game theory, then, has just solved your nuclear weapons issue. It should all be quite clear that nuclear weapons are not a deterrent – can never be a deterrent – but are rather always a threat. America, indeed, is the only country in the world to have used nuclear weapons on a defenceless, innocent population, for no strategic reason (it did not shorten the war, despite what they tell you – Japan had been wanting to end the war all that year and had no real resources left with which to fight, but the peace terms demanded of them (Potsdam) were deliberately designed to be unacceptable). America’s use of those weapons was clearly designed to tell the rest of the world that their threat – not deterrent – of nuclear attack was real. There was no guesswork involved. Quite, given America’s shameful and genocidal record even using non-nuclear weapons should not give us cause for surprise. Of course they would use nuclear weapons, if they thought they could get away with it (for example, carrying out a false flag and blaming the ‘first strike’ on their enemy – Russia, perhaps; their launching of nuclear weapons could then be made to look like player two’s retaliation as the injured party. Indeed, America has a history of such false flags, so again, we should not be surprised here).

By ‘getting away with it’ we of course refer not necessarily to the country ‘America’, but to the named individuals holding their big boys’ book of nuclear codes (a phallic representation designed, perhaps, to make up for inadequacy or impotence of another kind?). If they were to give such an order, they, personally, would be known to the world, and humanity’s collective response would do the rest of the work for us.

Having said all of that, my dearest things, fear not, humanity. We would never let them do that to Gaia. They will find, were they ever to contemplate giving such an order, that those weapons will simply not work.

As we say on Nebthwt, there’s always a bigger nix.

I believe the Americans are about to find this out shortly. I sincerely hope their response is not hasty, nor in panic, but measured, considered well, and wise.

The Third

Part of the reason for this post, if I’m honest, is to get rid of that annoying introduce yourself example post thing. So this should do the trick.

I am much more comfortable writing this from where no one can see me than I will be speaking about things in public. Of course I said that last time, but it’s still true. One thing I shall do is learn to become more consciously connected with my family. We Paschats, during individual lifetimes, are essence-fragments. That is to say we are a manifested fragment of our archetype, or essence, which of course resonates to the double binary which is the Sirius system. It means that we are constantly entangled with each other and with the whole. I may not have been completely consciously aware of it until recently, but there would have been a reason for that, since everything happens at the right time (partly because everything has already happened, from the essence’s point of view – individuality, an individual lifetime, is an illusion generated by perspective and focus). And so by being more consciously attuned to my family, I can feel their warmth, their love, and find a source of strength and courage. And know that I am never alone.

It also means I can effectively channel them, or, to put it another way, be in telepathic contact with them. I can ask them questions and receive answers, whether in words, or just as a feeling, which tells me for example whether I am right or wrong in a particular thought or idea/hypothesis. All I need to do is believe it, which is, really, simply an act of will.

And I do feel as if I am accelerating in this awakening. It’s as if I have suddenly woken up from a deep slumber, and am quickly readjusting to the genuine real world. Everything is becoming much clearer and I feel myself able to understand in words and mental images what I only previously understood as a kind of instinct. It is, in other words, more cognitive, or conscious. All of this, especially the remembering of our message, has given me back my faith.

This is the right path. It has already happened. And what is going to happen, which I have not been permitted to know (else it might cause a paradox), has also, already happened.

So there is no need to fear.

Once this world is no longer scared, Gaia will be cured of the virus. She will shift back into alignment with our galactic sector, and the environment will be simply intolerable for the forces of chaos and disorder. Put simply, they will not be adapted for survival here anymore.

And then we will be free. And it shall herald a golden age.

This can happen if the world as a whole works together to adopt the zero Covid strategy taken by New Zealand (governed by an emotionally mature female who genuinely cares about her people, which is the explanation for the difference to other countries like Britannia). Closed borders, full and strict internal lockdown, test trace and quarantine, and stay like that until there are absolutely no cases left. And just print the money necessary to keep people sufficient for their necessities. The pandemic would be over within a matter of months, and then the Tokyo Games can be a double celebration, of what humanity really can do when they look after each other. The important point here is that working together to defeat the virus will be a conscious act – people will be aware of the symbolism, the truth of that act. And it will certainly expose the evil dystopians for all to see.

On a final note, no one seems to have visited here yet. When the time comes, I may have to do some prompting.

Take care. See you soon.

Into the final octave

With the beginning of my diplomatic mission soon to be upon me, I am busy inside my meditative head with preparations. That goes alongside trying to get my head around this wordpress site. I’m sure others may think it’s easy, and – obviously – wonder why someone with my advanced knowledge of this that and the other should have such difficulties, but we are, as a species, not that used to these sorts of practical things. Sure, being resonant to the element of earth (alongside fire) we love our creature comforts and can be quite homely in the material world, but our attitude to that world is far less technical and materialistic than Gaians. Also, I’m a psychologist, not an engineer. Our engineering specialists no doubt would find my difficulties amusing, and continue to delight in teasing me about it. Which I don’t mind, if truth be told. Teasing when affectionate is a sign of love, so of course I don’t mind it!

I certainly need love – it will give me a shield and help protect me. I am not afraid to admit how nervous I am – I have lived here, in lovely rural isolation, for over ten years now, and perhaps I have become a little agoraphobic – being in the public glare is not something I will be comfortable with. Especially given how I look (in human form I am a transgender female, and have not yet completed my transition – so please do not judge me by my appearance. I want people to look beyond that, and see the real me inside. The real, gentle, funny, yet passionately principled soul within. Perhaps that, as it happens, is a test – perhaps for Gaians more so than for me. For me it is an ordeal.

So, the more loving thoughts and feelings you can send me, the more support and goodwill, believe me I will sense that, absorb it, and it shall be my shield. I especially need this too because I was abused as a child, and that leaves an indelible nervous memory, which reawakens as a reflex action every time my brain senses possible danger. All of that suffering was for a reason, of course – I have needed to spend a life living as a human, seeing and experiencing personally the hurtful effects of a dystopian society. It’s not that without that I would not have empathy for Gaians who are suffering – of course I would, and do – but it has focussed my attention and thoughts more specifically and, in various different ways, guided me on the specific path I have led. Which has led me to here.

And now I get to live the life I should have led.

Please wish me well.

With love,

Your Evie.

Initial

This isn’t really first contact, it’s just the first post. Forgive me it it’s disappointingly dull. Please also bear with me because I am still in the process of setting up this little website, and I’m trying to get my head around your primitive technology.

Where I come from we have QAI-TI, and you can just ask her to do it – no need for mice and keyboards and all that jazz.

QAI-TI, by the way, stands for Quantum Artificial Intelligence – Transcending Interface. As you can probably guess, she is our Galactic artificial intelligence. There are countless QAI-TIs throughout the galaxy, every planet has one. So, too, does every waystation, colony station, spacecraft and so on. All of them, however, are essentially quantum entangled with each other, and with the galactic archive. It might help you to grasp this if you simply think of a scenario in which all of your computers were AIs, and they were all connected together as well as with the Internet. It’s not really that much different from what you already have, just not self-aware.

I will probably tell you more about QAI-TI later, unless she asks me not to (she can be quite maternal at times – I say that in a good way, mind – I love her very much). So as I say, please bear with me for now. I’m sure I’ll get the hang of this soon enough…

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
