PART FOUR: The Human Response to Extraterrestrial Intervention

Being primarily a forum for the latest research, a MUFON symposium is an unlikely place for thoughtful consideration of an appropriate human response to the extraterrestrial visitation apparently signified by the UFO phenomenon. But in Denver, MUFON directors invited Marshall Summers—one of the most controversial and perhaps least-understood figures in the UFO/ETI research community—to present a rare workshop on this important topic.

Summers is not a researcher, but a contemplative who for twenty years has been “quietly receiving a body of teachings which constitute the first real spirituality of contact,” according to editor Darlene Mitchell at New Knowledge Library (http://www.greatercommunity.org/), a non-profit reader-supported publishing company dedicated to making Summers’ works available in print.

Formerly “a hidden spiritual teacher,” Summers was reluctantly thrust into the UFO controversy when, as he tells it, in 1997 he began receiving a series of “briefings” from a small group of off-world extraterrestrials who claimed to represent the Allies of Humanity, a network of individuals dedicated to the preservation of freedom and sovereignty among emerging worlds.

According to the reclusive Summers, these mysterious Allies were sent to this region of the galactic neighborhood in the late 1980s “to observe, not to intervene; to witness, not to become involved.” Their briefings, now published in two volumes, comprise the Allies’ report to humanity about their observations of the activities and intentions of those extraterrestrials who are currently active in our world, providing a vantage point and an understanding that until now have simply been unavailable to humans.

Summers makes it clear that the Allies offer “no spoon-feeding, no extraterrestrial makeover of humanity, no new world order, no new spiritual leadership—and no free energy.” Instead, they have provided the keys to seeing the extraterrestrial presence for what it is, an uninvited and clandestine intervention into human affairs. In addition, he says, “the Allies give us a window into the universe, the Greater Community of intelligent life.”

The initial image that the Allies present in their briefings is stark and disturbing: “Very briefly,” says Summers, “we’re undergoing a subtle intervention whose purpose is to gain control of our world, its resources, and its people.” This campaign is being carried out by extraterrestrial forces whose interests are unabashedly commercial in nature. These interlopers are here, he says, “because we possess resources in our world that are very valuable to other races for very practical reasons.”

“We must see that an intervention is not a visitation,” Summers declares. “An intervention is a forced entry.”

Summers likens humanity’s current position to “the natives of a new world,” who unknowingly have in their possession natural treasures that are of great value to outsiders. When a new world is discovered, he notes, the first to arrive on its shores are resource explorers. “This is nature” in a universe of great competition and complexity, he says, a reality that has been played out again and again in human history.

While MUFON researchers have been able to identify many of the pieces, accumulating data about what is happening in the phenomenon, they do not and cannot deal with more difficult questions, such as: Why is it happening? What does it mean? How can we prepare for contact? “These are not easy subjects for science to deal with,” says Summers. “Now we’re entering the realm of something else—spirituality, insight, philosophy, intuition, nature. It’s bigger.”

“The UFO phenomenon is a pretty uncomfortable place to be,” acknowledges Summers. “We’re at the threshold of something that most people don’t know about and most don’t want to know about.” He maintains that “the UFO phenomenon is not a mystery” but a puzzle with many missing pieces. The Allies briefings make it possible to connect the dots, he says.

Summers realizes that the Allies challenge “the orthodoxy of the UFO community,” an accepted group of beliefs, assumptions and expectation that distort perception of the extraterrestrial activities. “It’s gone so far,” says Summers, “as to become ‘spiritually incorrect’ to question the extraterrestrial presence.”

In contrast, the Allies’ briefings present “a very prosaic picture of life beyond our world,” he says. “It’s not the kind of Magic Kingdom that we often hear about, particularly in channeled works, where we’re sort of a third world planet surrounded by enlightened beings who are shepherding us towards enlightenment or who are going to rescue us from our own self-destruction.”

“We’re still operating out of Drake’s Equation,” explains Summers, which implies that “anyone who becomes advanced technologically must have advanced ethically or they would have destroyed themselves.” However, this assumption is not borne out even in human history, he observes, where some civilizations have survived over a long period, advancing technologically “but certainly not ethically and spiritually.”

The Allies contend that technological and spiritual evolution do not necessarily go hand in hand, according to Summers. For instance, in our modern society “we have great technological advancement, but our spiritual advancement is questionable.” This is important to understand, he says, “because it tells us what advanced races in the Greater Community are going to be like. If their spiritual and ethical evolution is not commensurate with their technological evolution, then you are going to have races who are spiritually bereft, who are incredibly controlling—the kind of societies we would probably not want to live in.”

Indeed, Summers and the Allies claim that this is now being demonstrated in humanity’s encounter with technologically-advanced extraterrestrials. “Everyone in the universe needs resources,” he says. “The higher the level of technology, the more refined resources are required. It also means that you have to interact in trade and commerce with other nations.” However, he notes that we humans are very naïve about the degree of commerce and competition that apparently take place in this well-inhabited part of the galaxy.

“These are commercial forces,” Summers contends. “They must act in a surreptitious manner and make it appear that humanity desires their presence and activities here on earth.”

According to Summers, “the Allies emphasize that our world is very rare in its biological diversity—and the fact that it hasn’t been completely stripped clean by a highly technologically advanced race.” This makes Earth a prime target for resource exploitation, and human beings are high on the list of desirable commodities. He says that the second set of the Allies’ briefings, now available in an underground edition, “paints a very dark picture of the intervention, a picture that the intervention would never reveal to its representatives and its apologists. It’s very difficult for us to face, for we are a biological resource ourselves.” In essence, says Summers, “There’s a black market out there where these resources are highly valued and sold.”

Such extraterrestrial activities here are shrouded in secrecy, the Allies argue, suggesting that the much-decried cover-up has its origin with the ETs themselves. “The cover-up is critical to their agenda,” says Summers. “They’re not here to destroy us; they’re here to use us. They certainly want us to be compliant.”

To complicate matters, what amounts to a powerful propaganda campaign is in place regarding the extraterrestrial presence. “The deception is that we’re made to think that it’s here for our benefit, that without it we will fail—we will destroy ourselves, we will collapse, we will fall prey to predators in the universe. And as the native peoples, being ignorant of life beyond our borders, and believing and hoping as we do that whoever we encounter would be there for our benefit, will tend to make certain kinds of classic mistakes that have been repeatedly made in the history of our own world. We certainly do not want to make those kinds of mistakes here, and we are making them already.”

The Allies reveal the darker motives of the intervention, says Summers, “to which we ascribe all kinds of benevolent qualities and hopeful expectations.” It is more likely, he suggests, that the intervention is occurring because “we happen to be sitting on a very wealthy planet that’s being very mismanaged, and we’re despoiling it.”

However, the tactics of the alien intervention are not difficult for us to understand, he says. “In this day and age, intervention isn’t men with guns; intervention is men and women with briefcases, cellphones and laptop computers. Every day around the world intervention is being attempted, using means that are very similar to the means being used by the extraterrestrial intervention.”

The extraterrestrial forces apparently excel in what Summers and the Allies refer to as “the mental environment,” where force is not as important as persuasion and manipulation. Here Summers suggests that even the current conflict between the Muslim and Western worlds serves the extraterrestrial intervention. “The United States, the only nation in the world that could really oppose an intervention, gets embroiled in a civil war scenario from which it cannot extract itself,” he says. “It becomes vilified by the rest of the world, and becomes immensely weakened. Even its own population is divided, and faith in the government has been further weakened.”

“That’s how interventions work,” says Summers. “You lose faith in your medicine man, you lose faith in your chief, you lose faith in your ancient traditions, and it creates a power vacuum that easily gets filled by something else.”

Illustrating that this approach is not new, but in fact has been practiced among humans for centuries, Summers quotes from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War: “The best policy is to use strategy, influence and the trends of events to cause the adversary to submit willingly. Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the directors of the opponent’s fate.”

Despite such clever tactics, Summers claims, with the guidance of the Allies the extraterrestrial intervention can be understood and thwarted. The biggest problem to overcome, he says, is human denial. “We don’t want to know. And we don’t want anybody to tell us what we don’t want to know.”

Who are the extraterrestrials intervening in our world? “There are several competing groups,” says Summers, “made up of what the Allies refer to as Collectives—large, multi-racial commercial organizations. They are driven by the same needs that drive us, with advanced technology and a greater social cohesion than we do.”

For Summers, these Collectives are somewhat analogous to our planet’s multinational corporations. “They’re not multidimensional,” he says. “They’re not time travelers. They are physical beings who can do things we don’t understand, mostly because of technology.”

However, the extraterrestrials do possess extraordinary capabilities in the mental and psychological realm, he says. For instance, “they can project images, and they can control thinking to a certain degree.” This is particularly dangerous in religious fundamentalism, because “the intervention can produce images of our saints and our holy people, and we can’t tell the difference between a projected apparition and a spiritual apparition.”

While these abilities appear very mysterious to us, says Summers, we can still understand much about the intervention. “We already know that whoever is here can fly in our skies at will, take people at will, mutilate animals at will, do incredible acts of display over our military facilities,” he says. “They can take you or your children any time they want and they can do anything they want with you and you can’t say boo about it. And they’re going to make you believe that it’s for your own good and that you should help them.”

The Allies describe the abduction phenomenon as but one aspect of the intervention. “The number of people being taken is fairly great, and not all of them are being returned,” Summers claims. “We’re dealing with something that is very, very grim. And if you take every aspect of the UFO phenomenon and put it all together, you’re going to get a very alarming picture—if you’re willing to look.”

For Summers, the extraterrestrial intervention is “the biggest problem confronting humanity.” Yet the vision of the Allies is one of hope, he maintains, for they see the extraterrestrial intervention as the one thing that could unite humanity, for they reveal that “no one in the universe is going to save us. Therefore, we have to save ourselves. And in so doing, we may find the strength and unity that we’ve never been able to achieve before.”

Summers emphasizes, “The only thing that a true ally of humanity can do is to give us their wisdom. The big appeal of these briefings is to enable us to get in touch with our own wisdom, our spiritual wisdom, and the wisdom of nature.”

How is humanity to prepare for contact with extraterrestrial life? “First, you need to know what this is,” says Summers. “You have to overcome perhaps your ideas or theories. You have to overcome the element of human denial. You have to see that you can actually know something and do something.”

“We’ve been very disempowered,” he explains, “not only by the intervention but by our own governments and society. We’re made to be compliant people who do what’s expected, without much complaint. We’re not trained to be advocates and groundbreaking people doing something new.”

Awareness is the first step to a human response to the extraterrestrial intervention, says Summers. For him the Allies briefings, and the larger body of teachings of which they are a part, are an essential introduction to our cosmic education. “You can treat the Allies’ briefings as information. You can treat them as another perspective. But that’s not really what they are. They’re meant to be studied,” he says, “not simply read. They are meant to invoke within you your own clarity, your own seeing.”

What is Summers’ role in all this? “I’m not here to frighten you,” he says. “I’m here to empower you, to tell you that you have the strength to see, to know, and to act—and that it is not too late to deal with this. I don’t have the whole blueprint that humanity will need to deal with this, but I do have a piece of the wisdom that humanity will need.”

And what of the Allies themselves? Sadly, having delivered their report, these intrepid observers have left this region of space, according to Summers, so their briefings are a one-time communication. “Actually, they were driven out,” he says. “But what they’ve given to us, according to them, is everything we need to know to take it from here ourselves.”

The Beginnings of a Human Sovereignty Movement?

The Allies’ briefings have already inspired a measure of human response to the extraterrestrial presence. At the end of his MUFON workshop, Marshall Summers unveiled—and read—a strongly-worded “Declaration of Human Sovereignty,” drafted by a small group of activists and advocates who are convinced it is time for humanity to establish its own rules for engagement with extraterrestrial forces and nations.

While the document is clearly based in part upon the United States’ Declaration of Independence, Summers notes that earlier activists indirectly contributed to its development. Among them was Dr. John Brandenburg, a plasma physicist and author who unveiled his “Rainbow Declaration” at a 1990 MUFON symposium—and was nearly booed off the stage for presenting a “negative” view of the aliens and calling for resistance to their invasive activities. Elaine Douglass, of the now disbanded Operation Right to Know (based in Washington, D.C.), later published a more formal and somewhat legalistic revision of Brandenburg’s pioneering document, known as “The Declaration of the Rights of the People of Earth.”

Both Douglass and Brandenburg were on hand at the 35th annual MUFON symposium in Denver to sign and endorse the new Declaration of Human Sovereignty, which Summers says is “still a work-in-progress.”

The document, which can be viewed at http://www.humansovereignty.org/, enumerates fundamental rights and responsibilities that the people of Earth can and should invoke not only for themselves but for the sake of freedom everywhere in the universe. These include the rights of sovereignty, planetary sanctity, sanctity of biological and genetic material, occupation of sphere of influence, and peaceful navigation.

The Declaration embodies a sobering assessment of the extraterrestrial presence on and around Earth, enumerating a withering list of abuses and violations of human freedom. The language stirs a kind of planetary patriotism. For instance:

“Although the Earth has undergone a long history of extraterrestrial visitation, the current situation is that the People of Earth are now suffering the effects of a global extraterrestrial intervention into human affairs. This intervention employs a strategy of deception, manipulation, and exploitation, the goal of which is control over humanity, which will result in the loss of human freedom and self-determination. It is now the sacred right and duty of the People of Earth to oppose, resist, and repel this extraterrestrial intervention, to declare and defend our sovereignty, our freedom, and our independence from all extraterrestrial forces.”

Finally, the Declaration sets forth a series of stringent demands, including the dissolution of all existing treaties or agreements between any humans and extraterrestrials, the immediate departure of all alien forces from the entire Solar System, the identification of all human-extraterrestrial hybrids, and the return of all humans held in captivity by ETs.

Speaking on behalf of all humanity, the authors are careful to declare that “the rights and privileges that we affirm here for ourselves, we also affirm for all races of beings whom we might encounter.”

The framers of this document are hopeful that it will help spark a movement for human freedom and sovereignty. “You have to see something first,” says Summers, “and then you have to begin communicating about it. If that part doesn’t happen, nothing else does. This is a grass roots, from-the-bottom-up movement. For if humanity does not rally, we will gradually lose our freedom to foreign powers. We will have no voice in determining what will happen, who can be here, and what they can do.”

According to Summers, “This Declaration was not made simply for us. It was also made for those governing powers who are watching the Collectives’ activities in our world, to make it known that we are not compliant. For if we demonstrate displeasure with the extraterrestrial intervention, the intervention will have to be stopped.”

The group plans to distribute their Declaration through one-on-one communication, and through the Internet. More dramatically, they intend to broadcast the message into space via sophisticated satellite technology, in the hope that the Declaration will eventually be monitored by administrative bodies who are responsible for enforcing rules of conduct in this region of the galaxy, rules that the intervening extraterrestrials are routinely violating.

Clearly, this small band of activists takes seriously the admonitions of the Allies of Humanity, as recorded in their final briefing: “This is not a time for ambivalence or complacency. This is not a time to simply project one’s grievances and mistrust upon the world. To the extent that humanity is divided and unaware of life beyond its border, it is vulnerable and without real security. Your opposition to one another is misplaced. You have no defense against the outside.”
