Q: How could advanced non-terrestrial
contact assist us out of our "petroleum-nuclear planetary
coffin" and aid us in leading a sustainable society? Where do you
see us in, say 11 years [by 2012] and 50 years [by 2050]?
A: The essence of exopolitics is that our
relationships depend on our interaction. Right now, our official human
culture denies the existence of the ecology of intelligent civilizations
that surround us in space and among the interactive Universe dimensions.
There is not very far that we can get with that kind of denial. We are a
sort of autistic civilization, insistent on the fact that we alone are
alive. That autism is artificial. It is the result of a ruling
network of terrestrial elites who have kept humanity ignorant
of the existence of non-terrestrial civilizations for at least
the past half-century, since the end of World War II. The autism may
also be the result of an information blackout imposed by lower-order
This sentence refers to an “information blackout” or Quarantine
described in Exopolitics: A Decade of
Contact as follows:
“Earth is isolated because it is under intentional
quarantine by a structured, rational Universe
society. There are signs around us of a Universe initiative
to reintegrate Earth into interplanetary society. It is
possible that Earth may be permitted to rejoin Universe society,
under certain conditions, or at a future time certain.”
Open interaction with Universe society could yield fairly rapid
results in forestalling our ecological crisis, and elevating human
society. New energy non-polluting energy sources - of human design and
application could at last be made available without their inventor’s
fearing assassination by petroleum and nuclear interests. Our
petroleum civilization would be stalemated and made obsolete.
Universe society’s laws and institutions prohibit war as a
conflict resolution mechanism. The ruling terrestrial elites - and the
permanent war economy - have historically used war as a key means of
production and power.
Exopolitics is the study
of law, government and politics in the Universe. It is Universe law,
government, and politics that will liberate human society.
the time frame, that is dependent on human interactivity. We must build
an exopolitical grass-roots on Earth - a Decade of
Contact for community politics and education about Universe society
and our Universal heritage.
Q: What encompasses our
Universe society? What do you believe is actually going on here? A
re-integration? Has there been a continuous, hidden, non-terrestrial
presence on earth throughout history?; What is your theory on
law encompasses all of the Universe - Universal
law and justice exist and govern all intelligent life in the
Universe. Universe society is one society - a multiplicity of societies
under Universal law.
Human society, by analogy, is a unitary, multi-cultural
society on a single life-bearing planet. We are to Universe society as a
garden is to the gardener. Life-bearing planets and the life species on
them are grown and developed by dimensional civilizations which are
devoted to this.
There are many inter-acting facets to what we
call "Non-terrestrial" or
"Extraterrestrial". What we see as "Interstellar
space" is but one dimension of a multi-dimensional Universe. Thus
advanced, interplanetary civilizations are in fact, "multi-dimensional",
"extraterrestrial" "interstellar" and perhaps even "planetary" on
another life-bearing planet. What is of important to
Exopolitics is that all of this reality - all interactions
and relationships by intelligent life in the Universe -are ruled by law,
government and politics.
Q: Are global management bodies
in contact with some sort of Galactic Federation or with
some sort of supernatural spiritual adepts?
Possibly. From some evidence there may have been fifty years of intrigue
and power relationships between a lower order non-terrestrial force and
USA military-intelligence networks. Conversely, the highest covert
priority of the USA military over the last 50 years appears to
be waging an information war against the non-terrestrial
presence - a knowledge embargo; black propaganda and black
ops to demonize the non-terrestrials.
But this is almost
beside the point in the long run.
is acting to increase the awareness of the human race as a whole. Open
interaction with the highest levels of Universe society is designed for
the evolution of the human race, not the illusory temporal power needs
of a few white men.
Q: If your 1977 Carter
White House Extraterrestrial Communication Study had not been
terminated, what would you have found? Would we have had disclosure over
the last 25 years? How would today be different?
would most probably be now acting under 25 years of open disclosure. The
differences could be incalculable, with that degree of power and
authority to open up interaction and get beyond the zero-sum game of the
death forces that now enforce the embargo against open contact.
"The only way out is through," the saying goes. Well, we
didn’t get through under the Carter Administration, so now we
must get through at the grass-roots.
Q: Are the
non-terrestrials acclimating/acclimatizing us to their
presence? What must humanity do before they exist with us more openly?
A: Yes. Acclimating is a good term for this process. The
entire UFO phenomenon can be seen as a vast
peripheral-cuing mass psychological condition project to enhance our
awareness of higher intelligence in the Universe.
Humanity is in
a very good place, psychologically and Universally. Between 50 and 100
million adult North Americans (between 25% and 50% of the adult
populations - Gallup and Zogby polls) believe in the
reality of extraterrestrial presence on Earth. They will not
have a problem absorbing the new post-reality.
The difficulty is not
the human population - it is the networks of human governments
and the ownership of a petroleum and nuclear energy civilization that is
in the hands of retrogressive forces. The ruling terrestrial
elites are not ignorant of the non-terrestrial presence. They
are actively carrying out a fifty year information war against
our integration with Universe society.
Q: Please offer
your thoughts on weapons in space; killer comets/asteroids; the role of
the United Nations with non-terrestrial contact; some sort
of shift in the consciousness of humanity.
A: The USA’s
"Star Wars" and the militarization of space is part of the
information war against Earth’s integration with Universe
society. Star Wars is an "inside code word" for
this war among the military planners. The issue is whether our space
technology will be in accord with Universal principles, or controlled by
a military empire. Dealing with near earth objects is a common
application of space technology. The USA will ultimately suffer
ignominious defeat by Universe society should it persist as a space
Q: Exopolitics seems to
involve elite power groups- information, propaganda, coverup,
disclosure, etc. What is the situation concerning pro and
anti-disclosure factions? Will the non-terrestrials bypass this
merely describes a process - that of law, politics and government
in the Universe. Politics does not end at the geostationary orbit. It is
The task of our generation is to make
exopolitics at the grassroots level. Where are the
concerts on behalf of integrating with the Universe? Where are the
artists, the activists, the students, the writers, the militants? Answer
- they are coping with the effects of the information war and the
embargo against even thinking that non-terrestrial civilization.
How do we bust out into a grassroots exopolitics - like the
Peace movement, say of the 1960s-80s?
Q: What essential
points are you trying to make in EXOPOLITICS?
A: Exopolitics is more than
extraterrestrial politics. Exopolitics is real and an
immediate part of Earth’s social ecology. Exopolitics, as a discipline,
is the study of politics, government and law in the Universe. It is an
authentic, newly received branch of human knowledge, as well as an
exciting frontier. Exopolitics is also the self-regulating
process of a populated, highly advanced and organized Universe.
Exopolitics provides the institutional framework for
Earth’s integration into Universe society. That process is now ongoing
and will accelerate as exopolitical realities are awakened
Q: What, in your mind, are the political
implications of the book EXOPOLITICS?
A: Well, we don’t know yet the impact of the
Exopolitics perspective. But the implications of
exopolitics itself for human politics are profound. The change to be
brought about is not a sea change, it is a Universe change for human
kind. The current paradigm of human politics has the political process
ending at Earth’s edge (as the human law of outer space establishes).
Exopolitics mediates Earth’s political and governmental
relationships with societies and organizations in interplanetary
society. The impact of exopolitics on human politics will
be transformative. An aware Grass roots politics will deconstruct the
information war waged against the Extraterrestrial
Initiative, largely by Echelon countries (USA, UK, Australia,
New Zealand, Canada). Humankind will reclaim their Universal rights to
Universal citizenship. Earth’s politics will extend to the exopolitics
of other societies in the Universe.
Q: How do your
credentials and background bolster the disclosure process?
A: I think of my contribution to the exopolitical
process in terms of praxis, the melding of theory and practice.
As theory, in The Age of Cataclysm (1974) we developed the
context theory of extraterrestrial communications. That
is, interpreting UFO encounters and the UFO
phenomenon as intentional communication, through an analogue of dream
interpretation theory. Many UFO encounters are archetypal
communications from a higher source. The UFO phenomenon
itself can be seen as peripheral cueing of our species with a goal of
activating Universe awareness. These UFO-based
communications are part of our process of Universe
As practice, in 1977, as a futurist with
the Center for the Study of Social Policy at SRI, I
formulated and developed a proposed study with the Carter
White House on extraterrestrial communication. That
study was brutally terminated by the intervention of the
SRI-Pentagon liaison in September, 1977. So I am familiar
with the information war, and am a practitioner of exopolitics.
Q: If you were to narrow down the most important
aspect of your contribution to this process, what would it be?
A: This question itself illustrates the fresh perspective
exopolitics brings. "Important" from whose perspective: the
perspective of terrestrial civilization, or the Extraterrestrial
Initiative? The Extraterrestrial phenomenon - in its Universal
manifestation - is interactive, highly evolved,
multi-dimensional (I am not talking about near-Earth remnants of our
Universe quarantine). I am still not quite sure how my actions might be
"important" from an Extraterrestrial perspective. Thanks for the
