How Do You Feel About Not Being Alone?

How do you feel about not being alone?
Navy pilots from the VFA-11 “Red Rippers” squadron aboard the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt in 2015.

The New York Times published an article on May 26, 2019. The headline was “‘Wow, What Is That?’ Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects.” The authors of this article are Helene Cooper, Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean. Between May 26 and now, I have spoken with many people in my world about what is presented in this article.

Cooper, Blumenthal and Kean are also the authors of a New York Times article on the little-known Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, published in December of 2017. I consider these two articles to be a thread on the subject of unexplained flying objects.

Ralph Blumenthal was a reporter for the New York Times from 1964 to 2009, most notably for investigative crime reporting. I consider his contribution to these two articles to be a sign that the New York Times is taking this subject seriously.

On the other hand, when this article appeared in the New York Times, it appeared on Page A14, roughly halfway between the front page and the editorial page. Media commentator Glenn Reynolds wrote “What does it say about the news environment that the U.S. government admitted UFOs were real earlier this week, and it was like the fifteenth biggest story?” Which it was.

The US Navy destigmatized UFOs

How do you feel about not being alone? On April 23, 2019, Politico magazine published an article with the headline, “U.S. Navy drafting new guidelines for reporting UFOs.” The May 26 New York Times article described UFO sightings by US Navy pilots in 2014 and 2015. I consider these sightings to have contributed to the new guidelines described in the Politico article.

What do these sightings mean?

Lieutenant Ryan Graves reported numerous UFO sightings in 2014 and 2015

How do you feel about not being alone? No one in my world disputed the testimonies of Lt. Ryan Graves and Lt. Danny Accoin. Graves and Accoin are the two Navy fighter pilots who spoke publicly and on the record to the New York Times.

A Navy veteran I spoke with mentioned that at one time, reporting a UFO was hazardous to a pilot’s military career. Furthermore, it was hazardous to a post-military career as a commercial pilot as well. Besides Graves and Accoin, there were three other pilots who only spoke to the New York Times on conditions of anonymity. It takes a great deal of time, effort and resources to take a person from a pilot trainee to a pilot. I surmise that there have been many UFO sightings by many Navy pilots. Enough to make it unprofitable to consider a UFO sighting as a sign of mental instability.

Plenty of people in my world offered opinions regarding the significance of these sightings. One person suggested that some party was developing the capability of projecting illusions to the radar of military aircraft. Another person suggested that the objects sighted by the pilots were advanced military craft. Still another person suggested that it was impossible for these objects to be of extraterrestrial origin, because of the vast distances between stars.

At this point, history helps

How do you feel about not being alone? I know someone is reading this and thinking “Well, what about you, Douglas? What do you think and how do you feel about these things?” Like everyone else in my world, I accept the testimonies of Ryan Graves and Danny Accoin. I believe they saw what they said they saw. I believe they saw objects capable of both hypersonic speed and hovering in one spot. I believe they didn’t see what they said they didn’t see. I believe Danny Accoin didn’t see the object that his radar detected.

The pilots of that squadron considered it unlikely that the US military would introduce advanced craft into a training mission. In recent history, when the US military has obtained a superior weapon, it has used it. The US used an atomic bomb in World War II. The US has used cruise missiles (developed in the 1970s) and drone warfare (developed in the 1990s) in the 21st Century. Therefore, if the US military had a craft that could both travel at hypersonic speeds and hover in one spot, I believe it would use it. The only exception I know of is the hydrogen bomb.

What if it’s…not American?

When other nations have developed superior weapons, they have used them. Germany used the V-2 missile in World War II. Therefore, if the military of another nation on Earth had a craft that do these things, I believe it would use it. If a military force had the capability of projecting illusions to military aircraft, I believe it would use it.

Humans have considered the possibility of intelligent extraterrestrial life for a very long time. It took centuries to confirm the intuition that the sun is a star. It took centuries to confirm the intuition that there were planets orbiting stars other than our sun. Therefore, the fact that human intuition about intelligent extraterrestrial life has not yet been confirmed, carries little weight with me.

I realize this is improbable

How do you feel about not being alone? The New Message from God teaches what is currently a minority viewpoint on the subject of extraterrestrials.

1) Intelligent extraterrestrial life exists
2) Extraterrestrials are intervening in human affairs today
3) This extraterrestrial intervention is a threat to human freedom

I realize these ideas are considered improbable at this time. But at this point, I’m recalling the words of Sherlock Holmes: “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”

We Face A Challenge To Our Freedom

Cover of The Allies of Humanity Book One. We face a challenge to our freedom

And by “we,” I mean “the human race, the human family, my people.” From time to time, I have shared my Amazon reviews of the books of the New Message from God. In 2013, I shared a review of the book “The Great Waves of Change.” In 2014, I shared a review of the book “Steps to Knowledge.”. Also in 2014, I shared a review of the book “Life in the Universe.” I am now sharing my Amazon review of the book “The Allies of Humanity, Book One” with some images.

We face a challenge to our freedom

There are three books in the Allies of Humanity series. Books One and Two are available in paperback editions. Book Three is only available in electronic form.

First appearance of Uatu the Watcher. We face a challenge to our freedom

And by “we,” Marshall Vian Summers means “the crew of Spaceship Earth.” In this volume, Summers introduces humanity to a small group of individuals from multiple worlds, reporting their observations of events on and around our world. They are constrained from intervening, much like the character “The Watcher” in the Marvel Universe, but they are allowed to give a report.

Starship fleet. We face a challenge to our future.What is the problem? Intervention in human affairs by multiple “collectives,” multi-species, multi-planetary corporations which make McDonalds and Starbucks look like mom-and-pop grocery stores by comparison. The battle Jihad vs. McWorld is not only taking place in our world, but in space as well.

[We face a challenge to our freedom. How do we know these collectives exist? All we have is the testimony of the Allies of Humanity. How do we know the Allies of Humanity exist? We have the testimony of Marshall Vian Summers. Do you trust his testimony? I believe this Project Camelot video has helped a lot of people make up their minds.]

Scene from "The Man Who Fell To Earth" We face a challenge to our freedom.

What is the goal of this Intervention? Access to/control of Earth’s precious biological and mineral resources. As I read this book, I recalled the books Rare Earth: Why Complex Life Is Uncommon in the Universe and The Privileged Planet: How Our Place in the Cosmos is Designed for Discovery. It should be noted that the collectives consider human beings to be just another biological resource, in the same way we think of domesticated animals.

[We face a challenge to our freedom. There was a time in human history when certain settlers and colonizers considered the indigenous peoples of certain regions to be a kind of intelligent animal whose labor could be exploited. Humanity is looked upon now by these collectives as a kind of intelligent animal.]

Manipulation puppetry. We face a challenge to our freedom.

How will the collectives achieve their goal? By manipulation of religious impulses, sowing the mental seeds of acquiescence, conformity, learned helplessness, waging a PR campaign that humanity is doomed without their help, engaging in an interbreeding program to more easily negotiate our environment.

[We face a challenge to our freedom. H. G. Wells was right when he wrote in “The War of the Worlds” how the Martians could not live in our environment. That is why an interbreeding program is underway.]

I wish to know my own strength. We face a challenge to our freedom

What can humanity do about this Intervention? Unite as a race, reverse environmental degredation, stop broadcasting everything about itself into outer space, develop greater resistance to persuasion and manipulation, take the Steps to Knowledge.

[We face a challenge to our freedom. I don’t know whether we will respond to the warning given by the Allies of Humanity. I hope we don’t find freedom to be too expensive.]

There are many more questions which could be asked, and they are asked and answered in a chapter near the end of the book.

I Will Practice Today. And The Next Day.

This is the third post in a series of three posts regarding the Step 70 review of Steps to Knowledge, where Steps 50 through 69 are reviewed. I am sharing my notes from when I actually did this Step (sometime in the summer of 2011) with some commentary.

I will practice today. And the next day.

Step 64 – “Today I will listen to another” – “I was hoping for a greater communication, but I didn’t get one.” The Step said “Allow others to express themselves to you.You will find that they have a greater communication for you than you might at first have anticipated.” Even though I didn’t experience a greater communication at the time, I felt good at having followed the directions. I felt good at having practiced listening.

Step 65 – “I have come to work in the world” – “I got it, but I’m still mystified.” I don’t remember what I was mystified about. I might have wanted more details about my work in the world. I might have been mystified as to how I could be somewhat autistic and accomplish anything the world actually needs.

Step 66 – “I will stop complaining about the world” – “The kids said ‘Yeah, right’ when I told them this step. More ‘observe without judgment.’ I’ve got plenty o’ nothin’ and nothin’s plenty for me.

Step 67 – “I do not know what I want for the world” – “I spent three days on this, thinking about the uniting world, the intervention, and the degradation of the environment.” The “intervention” is a shorthand term for a complex of phenomena described in much greater detail in the New Message book series The Allies of Humanity.

Step 68 – “I will not lose faith in myself today” – “This is such a challenge for me, but I remember grasping while journaling that I’m part of a much larger enterprise than me.”

Step 69 – “Today I will practice stillness” – “The instructions were ‘Be still, and get off on it.’ I did.” Those weren’t the exact words, but was the general idea. The Step did include the words “Allow yourself to bathe in the luxury of emptiness.”

Here is the word cloud from Steps 50 through 69.

I will practice today. And the next day. And the next day. And the next day.
