War in heaven.

War in heaven published 1988 and has long been out of print; ‘War in Heaven’ (WiH) consists of a dialog between Griffith and a “disembodied spirit” who claimed to be a member of a group calling itself ‘The Invisible College.’ Griffith states that the answers were received by automatic writing and read back to the contacted entity for review and correction.
The questions and answers that appear in the text are actually the result of several iterations of review and discussion.
The material thus generated is both convincing and compelling, and appears to be of vital importance to human society.
That is a claim we see all the time; this time I submit that the claim is truly justified. The intent was to use this material to enrich the discussions It is about magic, and magic, at times, is about sex.
These matters are all about the past, present, and future situation of the human race.

The Spiritual Holocaust


On the Soul Technology page, there is a type of matter having the same atomic and molecular structure as physical matter, but whose particles are much less dense, and whose gravitation does not interact with physical matter. This is called astral matter in WiH.
Every human has a somatic soul, closely resembling the physical body but made of astral matter, and an astral soul, also made of astral matter, which comprises the more permanent self.
Astral souls may or may not equate to higher selves as discussed in A Synthetic Myth. Spirits are simply astral souls operating without somatic souls and physical bodies. Hundreds of thousands of spirits from worlds with advanced technological civilizations have been sent to Earth by their governments to work with the Invisible College to assist humans in fighting a war to liberate us from the oppression and exploitation of Theocracy.

Disembodied spirits are forced to incarnate after a few years.
When they do, they lose most of the memories they brought with them, especially after repeated reincarnations. However, they, as well as many native Earth people, can learn to communicate with the discarnate Invisible College on a completely conscious level. This requires “proper psychic training”. Any human being can receive telepathic messages from the Invisible College subconsciously.
Invisible College members consider themselves ordinary people like us. Their previous bodies, on their home worlds, may or may not have resembled ours, but they are based on the same basic genetic code.
The home worlds possess what we would call advanced knowledge in many scientific and humanistic fields. Of particular importance is their capability with psychic energy that can produce changes in astral matter. That technology was used to send them here, but they were not able to bring their equipment with them.


Their motives are both altruistic and selfish. Had they not intervened, the human race would have evolved in directions that posed a serious threat to their own worlds and space colonies.
So they are fighting a “preventive war” on their own behalf, but they also feel the overwhelming majority of Earth people will support their cause once they are able to explain the situation fully.
They operate mostly by influencing the subconscious minds of Earth people. They come from civilizations that actually practice “human dignity and rights,” “individual sovereignty,” “social justice,” “consent of the governed,” and “equality of opportunity”.
Anyway, they say, “We are at war here, and we are fighting on your behalf as well as our own.” They must practice these social values, because they possess technology that would totally eliminate individuality if they did not have sufficient social, political, and ethical knowledge to keep the technology under control.

We are at war here, and we are fighting on your behalf as well as our own.” They must practice these social values, because they possess technology that would totally eliminate individuality if they did not have sufficient social, political, and ethical knowledge to keep the technology under control.
Their societies live with this threat, and we will eventually have to live with it too.
But the greatest danger we face in the next few decades (written in January 1987), is that
Theocracy and our exploding population will cause a spiritual cataclysm that will destroy the human race as it now exists and threaten their civilizations too if it goes unchecked.


They will probably be able to avert catastrophe and guide these upheavals in constructive directions, but the fate of many Earth people will still depend on their own actions. The concept of a Theocrat as a human who chooses to exert power over and ultimately to consume other humans, rather than to undergo reincarnation many notorious tyrants, conquerors, evil religious leaders, black magicians, and criminals have become Theocrats after death, but so have some people whom history calls saints or benign geniuses. This is due to the well-known tendency of power to corrupt, not to mention the prospect of achieving immortality (though most are and eventually destroyed by other Theocrats).
This has been especially true of people who were religiously devout, and then found out the horrible truth about their Gods after death.

Theocrats as a class have ruled both the Earth and its astral plane throughout most of human history. This includes most of the medieval Popes and other religious leaders notorious for being cynical and power-hungry. It also includes many famous occult leaders, from Cagliostro down to Aleister Crowley. The Theocrats’ method of absorbing energy from other spirits affects their growth patterns, causing their astral soul to go out of balance, and eventually driving them into irrational, insane, and self-destructive behavior. Theocrats acquire bands of enslaved spirits, containing from a couple of dozen to several thousand, with the average in the low hundreds.


Most of the activities have to do with the survival of the band and especially its dictator, recruiting new members from among the recently deceased, stealing souls from other bands, fighting to keep the Invisible College from liberating members of the band, etc.
Each Theocratic band works with a corresponding group of living people, whether religious, occult, political, or of other common interests: popular music, sports, or centered on other media. Theocrats can be found hanging around almost any place where crowds gather.
(Remember that the astral plane is not a “place”. It is right here, but of a different density.)

Theocrats communicating telepathically to individual Christians when they pray may call themselves God or Christ or the Holy Spirit… what ever they believers expect. They also may claim to be angels or saints or devils as appropriate. Some people who deliberately become Satanists on Earth hold positions of power in “Hell” after they die. Who goes to Heaven or Hell is mostly determined by which particular band of Theocrats gets to them as they’re in the process of dying. The Moslem, Hindu, and Buddhist mythologies are also theocratic institutions designed to imprison souls of believers in their own forms of Heaven or Hell.
With the decline in fanatical belief in organized religion, Theocrats have devised ways to persuade atheists and agnostics to join bands organized as any type of community of spirits, such as previously deceased relatives or friends, or some famous person they greatly admire, rock stars, politicians, movie stars, writers and scientists, even fictional characters.
Theocratic religious sects often forbid deliberate mediumistic contact with the spirit world precisely because of this need to protect knowledge of the true nature of the afterlife.
Every single one of the ideas at the core of traditional deistic doctrine is a lie:
1 Only God (under whatever name) is good; people are basically evil and are incapable of improving themselves morally by their own efforts.
2 Only God is naturally immortal, but people can gain immortality through proper service to the Deity.
3 Human beings can receive forgiveness for their sins, and divine strength to prop up their various weaknesses, by ‘Letting God into their hearts’… that is, by creating a powerful psychic bond between themselves and the deity. The important thing to realize about this whole body of lies is that it makes people weaker and more evil than they already are, and increases their dependency on the Theocrats.

Religious Mind Control


The methodology of religious mind control is what modern psychologists know as “operant conditioning”: altering behavior and mental programming by positive and negative reinforcement on the physical and sensory level. But Theocrats
strengthen this conditioning by transmitting ideas and emotions directly into people’s subconscious minds by telepathy. And they use people’s own psychic powers to control
other members of the congregation. The key to the technique is putting people into a state of consciousness best called the “religious trance” — a mild hypnotic trance in which the conscious will is awake but passive. People in this condition are completely aware of what is going on around them, and are recording these events in their memories exactly as they would in a normal waking state. They are also capable of thinking and acting voluntarily, but can do so only within certain very definite limits without breaking out of the religious trance and assuming normal consciousness.
People enter a very similar state when they read, listen to music, watch television or a movie, listen intently to a lecture or radio broadcast, etc. The passive state of the will
is often called “identification with the sensory intake,” which means accepting the sensory intake uncreatively and uncritically on both the intellectual and emotional levels. People enter a very similar state when they read, listen to music, watch television or a movie, listen intently to a lecture or radio broadcast, etc. (advertising)The passive state of the will is often called “identification with the sensory intake,” which means accepting the sensory intake uncreatively and uncritically on both the intellectual and emotional levels. It also means agreeing with the ideas being presented and feeling the same emotions being described in the song, story, play, etc.
This is a rather light trance. If the material being presented begins to contradict the person’s existing opinions or knowledge, identification breaks down. He or she assumes full normal consciousness and thinks, “I don’t agree with this,” or “I don’t understand this,” or “This is wrong.” But identification with sensory input can make people accept
things they would reject if they were fully conscious, as long as the input isn’t controversial or unfamiliar enough to break their concentration.
Once the conscious will becomes passive, electrical energy within the nervous system changes slightly in character, assuming a level closer to that during sleep than that during normal wakefulness. In a person fully trained to enter the religious trance, electrical activity stabilizes at exactly the right level to allow an equal flow of energy into and out of the astral soul. This allows the “astral will” to awaken partially, and creates a direct, two-way link between the physical mind and the astral mind.
(Griffith’s guide had explained that during incarnated life, a human’s physical and astral mind normally alternate in being conscious, the former when “awake”, and the latter when “asleep.”) This allows information to pass reasonably freely between the physical mind and the astral mind and vice versa. Also, the physical mind can receive impressions from the psychic senses of the astral soul more or less directly. This type of trance
is controlled by outside sensory input into both the physical and astral minds. It is a passive state used to control and brainwash people.
When religious believers say they “feel the presence of God” at church services, they are referring to telepathic communication. Most of this intake comes from other members of
the congregation; this is usually a more powerful influence than anything sent by spirits.
So there is a sort of “psychic chain reaction” that occurs, as every member of the congregation influences the emotions and thinking of every other member, like a box of matches catching fire or an atomic chain reaction. This process creates a “religious group

Religious and electronic mind control


This state of religious ecstasy and emotions do generate large amounts of psychic energy. Any Theocratic
spirits present may directly absorb part of that energy, but most of it is diverted back into the physical
mind of the members of the congregation to indoctrinate them with whatever the Theocrats want them to believe or feel or do. This is the essence of religious mind control.
In other words, a Theocratic spirit sends a telepathic message into the minds of people in such a state of
religious ecstasy, and they generate powerful surges of telepathically-transmitted emotion that program them to believe and act on the messages they receive. For example, the idea “Abortion is murder” might generate powerful feelings of hate, whereas “All Christians shall be as brethren” might generate feelings of familial love among all the members of the congregation.
People being controlled by this method enjoy it more than anything else in life. It is highly addictive.
Theocrats make the religious mind-control process as addictive as possible to enslave believers. The whole vicious circle of sin, guilt, and forgiveness was deliberately designed to create a cycle of addiction that is almost impossible to break.


The last thing Theocrats want is for religious believers to stop sinning. That is why they made sexual
pleasure a sin.
Sexual desire originates on the biochemical level and cannot be extinguished by manipulating the programming of the mind. (In this context, “mind” is defined as “The information stored in the brain, plus the software for retrieving and processing that information.”)
Theocrats do not confine their activities to religion and occultism, but corrupt and control human beings through all activities that produce certain states of altered consciousness.
Examples include using electronic media for passive recreational purposes — listening to popular music over the radio or on recordings, watching televised sports events and game shows, and playing the simpler computer games.
The Theocrats know a lot more about psychology than people do. In a crude analogy with computers, it is as though people can handle data input and output, and some have enough professional skills to modify some programs slightly, but the Theocrats not only know the software far more completely, but also have much easier access to the special “command mode” used to modify it. This command mode is the telepathic chain reaction used in religious mind control. Of course, trained human psychics also have access to it, and so do spirits in the Invisible College, but it is still extremely difficult to free people from Theocratic control.
The mind of the average person is run by software designed by the Theocrats to keep people from consciously finding out they exist.
They simply can’t understand or believe it, because the very mental programs they use for understanding and believing things, and drawing rational conclusions from certain kinds of information, were designed by the Theocrats.

Programming.


In their explanation of the Theocrats’ programming techniques, Griffith’s guides note that memory storage and retrieval in the human mind is a cumulative rather than an absolute process.

Data has to be received repeatedly, if details are to be recorded, and should be periodically
retrieved. Otherwise it will be automatically forgotten.
An organism’s behavioral response to stimuli depends on the quantity and quality of reinforcement that it
receives for performing that response. What was described as the “religious trance state” occurs in many
different places besides religious services, enabling Theocrats to practice mind control on crowds attending sporting events, in gambling casinos, at political rallies, during musical concerts of many types, and in a number of other places.
The Invisible College used the rock concerts, peace demonstrations, “love-ins,” and similar events of the
Sixties for exactly the same purposes. Before that, Griffith’s guides state, they used meetings of fraternal
organizations, a variety of progressive political meetings, and even the circuses and carnivals that used to
visit every American village and town, as the Theocrats used, and still use, touring revival meetings.


Both groups practice religious mind control to reprogram people whenever they get the opportunity.
I personally was involved with an “esoteric group” which at the time of the Apollo lunar landing in 1969 was asked to inject a certain concept into the mass mind of the human race while it was distracted or in a light trance state watching the landing on television. The concept had nothing whatever to do with the landing event.

It was expressed as follows: “Individual responsibility interacting social responsibility.”
The peculiar syntax was emphatically confirmed and the reason for this is anything but obvious; no explanation was given.
This was the kind of mind control we are discussing here, and I was participating as a sort of junior or
apprentice controller! This experience confirms that such activities do take place. I believe it came from
the Invisible College, not Theocrats.


Griffith’s guides state that even though most of the individual facts that make up the model of spiritual
reality presented in this book are already available to the public, very few people are capable of assembling them into a coherent theory. This is because the mental programs they use to draw conclusions from information on spiritual subjects were deliberately designed by the Theocrats to be illogical and irrational.
Seventeen years after the book was published, I have scanned the Internet looking for any signs that the book had made an impact or is even remembered today. I found only two or three references on the Web, and to me they seemed to be from people who were completely demented. This caused me momentarily to question my own sanity! A long description of how principles of positive and negative reinforcement are used to maintain people’s beliefs.
Rituals, for example, are of great value when they remain relatively stable. This is one of the principal
reasons why Theocratic religion is socially and politically conservative or reactionary.
According to basic behaviorist theory, the book states, human personality, including the mental programs that people use to evaluate data and decide what is true and false, is conditioned into them by their physical environment. Even if you leave direct telepathic programming during religious mind control out of the picture, people still receive their programming from both their physical and social environments.
Programming from the physical environment usually favors empirical thinking, which the Invisible College strongly encourages, but that from the social environment favors acceptance of doctrine on faith.
A large part of the customs and beliefs and instinctive emotional reactions that make up this social environment were created by Theocratic religion. The further back you go into human history, the greater the percentage of people who were devout believers in Theocratic religion and were subjected to religious mind control to a significant degree throughout their lives.
The hold of Theocratic religion on most of Earth’s living population did not begin to weaken until the modern era, from about the 1300s down to the present. And even today, the greater part of the population is still subject to religious mind control.
Modern civilization does program people with personality structures that resist religious mind control, but the Theocrats have been able to counter by resorting to electronic mind control.

Electronic Mind control

Undoubtedly if the book were to be updated, it would take up a discussion of the role of the Web in supporting a sort of mass mind of humanity.
Griffith’s guides begin the discussion of electronic mind control by noting that the technology works on two different levels, just as religious mind control does. Recall that religious mind control works by putting people into an altered state of consciousness similar to a light hypnotic trance and how the thinking and behavior of people in such a religious trance can be influenced by what they experience through the physical senses during the service. In other words, the preacher’s words can have the same effect as post-hypnotic suggestions during regular hypnosis.
Electronic mind control does exactly the same thing, and often to an even greater degree. It is also even more addictive than religious mind control. Like religious mind control, electronic mind control works on two different levels, one physical and one psychic.
The physical level can be directly observed with the physical senses and analyzed with the conscious intellect. Many researchers have described the uses of subliminals in media and how to spot them. The psychic component of electronic or media mind control employs completely different mechanisms and one needs to be careful not to confuse them. It is also important to distinguish between the psychic phenomena of religious mind control, which function most efficiently when the people or spirits involved are spatially close to another, as though the effect were broadcast and subject to inverse-square-law energy radiation, and a second, non-broadcast system for transmitting and receiving energies between human souls.
Reminiscent of the old Greek myth about the “Threads of Destiny” woven by the Goddesses called the Fates, threads actually exist, but they aren’t woven by superhuman beings.
They are “transmission lines” of astral matter connecting one soul to another, and they allow telepathic communications over greater distances and with greater power than can be accomplished by ordinary “broadcast” telepathy.
These threads are created spontaneously when astral souls come into contact with one another while generating large amounts of psychic energy. Whenever the astral mind is in the correct state of consciousness, generating these threads is as natural and automatic as the process that spiders use to leave a silk strand behind them when they travel. Added to the material about religious mind control given in the previous section, this additional theoretical information explains how television evangelists can exert a direct psychic influence over their congregations from a distance.
The process has two possible starting points. First, people who regularly attend Christian church services dominated by the Theocrats are urged to watch certain television evangelists and to listen to designated religious radio broadcasts. Over the years, an elaborate network of astral transmission lines has been built up to link the religious broadcasters to the clergy of Theocratic congregations all over the country, and through them, to the masses of ordinary members.

These psychic threads are put in place when radio and TV preachers are invited to hold services at church conventions, or when a group of churches hosts a large local revival meeting with a media evangelist, or someone working for one, as a guest. This method is used primarily to link the churches to the hundreds of second-rank broadcast evangelists with regional or local media followings. The superstar evangelists who already have national followings reverse this procedure: they invite the ministers and elders of selected churches all over the country to visit their studios and become part of the in-house congregation during their broadcasts. In either case, psychic linkages are stablished between the media evangelist and the local churches. Some of the more ambitious TV evangelists have also directly linked large numbers of ordinary members of Theocratic congregations – and hundreds of thousands of new converts as well – into their electronic mind control networks by periodically holding huge, live revival meetings. (They are people who have little or no interest in organized religion. It’s centered on major spectator sports, organized gambling, and the communications media that service both, and it controls more people than all the Fundamentalist churches and TV evangelists combined. It doesn’t program people’s surface thinking and behavior as thoroughly as Theocratic religion does, because People don’t have to be watching a sermon or listening to a hymn to receive subconscious telepathic messages from the very same spirits who control Fundamentalist religion; they only have to be in the correct state of altered consciousness (which TV and radio produces automatically in all members of the audience who haven’t learned specific techniques for preventing it), and they have to have the transmission lines of astral matter implanted in the right part of their soul, linking them into the network.
(This idea of connecting lines to the right part of the soul reminds one of Carlos Castañeda’s mention of “shifting the assemblage point,” a location on the “luminous cocoon” of awareness where all the fibers of the universe are focused into our perception of the universe.)
So live sports events and casino gambling serve the same function in this network as church services and revival meetings do in the electronic religious mind control networks. Compulsive gambling, especially on sports events through an enormous electronic bookmaking network, plays the same role as does the cycle of sin/guilt/forgiveness in Theocratic religion.
And the Theocrats are now actively expanding this form of mind control. Many states have legalized various forms of gambling that plug people into the networks just described: state lotteries, horse racing (including off-track betting), bingo, card parlors, etc. It’s no accident that gambling expands on both the in-person and media levels as the Fundamentalist churches and TV evangelism decline. The Theocrats are shifting their attention to activities more natural to the average opinions and lifestyles of present-day Americans.


Casino gambling in Nevada is one of the most important battlefields in the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. Once Theocratic spirits get their control threads on people gambling in the casinos, they continue to send telepathic messages into the minds of these people whenever they watch certain television programs, especially sports events and game shows.
Griffith responds with the advice that people who want to gamble do it in private games with friends, or at local bingo or card clubs if such are legal where they live. These forms of gambling can still plug people into an electronic mind-control network, but they’re less dangerous than the Nevada casinos. Going to Reno or Vegas or Atlantic City to gamble for fun would be like going “out on the town” in Saigon during the late Sixties.

Development and minimize the danger if they are careful to remain in a normal state of consciousness. This means: don’t sample the free drinks, and above all, don’t gamble for more than an hour at a time. If you get at all intoxicated or spaced out from fatigue, the Theocrats can put you into the same type of trance that people go into at religious services, and start brainwashing you. working mostly through popular music and pop culture in general. Once people have been to a certain number of live rock concerts, whether huge ones in sports stadiums or small ones in clubs, then they are permanently linked into a media mind control network run by the Invisible College, and they receive subconscious telepathic messages every time they listen to the right kind of music on the radio or on their own stereo systems.
The song lyrics perform the same function in this process as sermons do in religious media mind control. It’s hard to hear the channeled messages in song lyrics. Most of them are subliminal unless you go to special efforts to pick them out word-by-word, and when you do extract them, they’re written in an elaborate jargon and code. People who are part of the mind control network learn a deep instinctive understanding of this code, but few can paraphrase the content of the messages into plain English. The Invisible College does use sports and gambling for reprogramming when they can seize control of part of the network, while the Theocrats have a large and powerful following in the popular music world.
The Invisible College has a word of advice to conscious psychics and magicians who may be hostile to all forms of involuntary mental reprogramming: they can help people learn to defend themselves consciously against it by, for example, employing “clearing” rituals, which should be widely and publicly performed. Of course, this will also knock out “beneficial mind-control linkages” so they recommend people be prepared to create new beneficial linkages of their own. At this point, the discussion touched on sex and drug magic.
Millions of Americans now practice relatively advanced forms of sex and drug magic without bothering to learn the intellectual knowledge traditionally associated with such practices in both the East and the West. Many such experimenters have been hurt trying this, but a large number have gotten to the point where they can channel down instructions directly from spirits. However, because they have never bothered to learn the associated spiritual, cosmological, philosophical, and ethical systems, they are almost totally ignorant of how to identify the political faction a particular spirit belongs to on the astral plane, so their channeled information is usually a mishmash from many different sources.
But most have been evolving into more advanced types or have been replaced with outside religions since these peoples came into contact with foreigners over the past few hundred years.
The terms “primitive” and “advanced” are from the viewpoint of the Theocrats, who judge a religious system by how well it allows them to control every phase of human thinking and behavior, especially the conscious use of the psychic powers. Most shamanistic religions teach that some spirits eat souls. However, the information is usually encoded in such a way that the believers, including the shamans, do not realize that the “Eaters of Souls” are their own Gods. Instead, the Eaters of Souls are said to be the Gods of enemy tribes, or spirits that are very different from human beings (such as the Windigos of various Amerind tribes), or the ghosts of human criminals and outcasts. The shamantic religions usually teach that the tribe’s own Gods protect people from the Eaters of Souls. Griffith states that he himself feels a deep instinctive fear that maybe the Theocrats can in fact forcibly take over the minds of living people or somehow damage their souls.Their control over people is indirect, exercised mostly by programming the subconscious mind. They can’t overwhelm the conscious will of any normal person, only the wills of people with seriously damaged physical or astral minds; and they can’t directly harm or enslave the soul when it is incarnated. Second-stage theocratic societies, then, were large, densely populated, totalitarian, and practiced human sacrifice on a large scale. The most important factor is deism: belief in Gods that are omnipotent or at least significantly superhuman. This separates the higher levels of Theocratic religion from primitive shamanism, which considers the Gods rather similar to earthly shamans, except that they are disembodied spirits.
Often they are simply called “the Spirits of Our Ancestors” or “The Shamans in the Spirit World.”
The reason that second-stage Theocratic religion practiced mass human sacrifice was to supply the Theocrats with a constant food supply. When the victims were killed as part of a large public religious ceremony, the telepathic chain reaction generated by a congregation in the religious trance was sufficient to put the victims’ astral souls into a hypnotic trance before death. When they were suddenly and violently killed, the Theocrats were usually able to get control of the souls before they had a chance to flee. This is one of the few examples in the history of Theocracy where the Theocrats were able to seize souls by force, and they could do it only with the help of large numbers of living people. It seemed to him that the ancient Egyptians and Hebrews were not societies with second-stage Theocratic religions.

The guides replied that both were in the third stage when they first appeared in written historical records, and archaeological evidence shows that they probably went directly from the first stage to the third, as did the Greeks and the rest of the Western Aryan peoples. The second stage of Theocratic religion was a failed experiment from the Theocratic point of view.

Third Stage

The third stage of Theocratic religion involves mass animal sacrifices. Although they prefer human souls, Theocratic spirits can nourish themselves off the astral souls of lower animals to some extent. And these souls are easier to paralyze and control with religious rituals than human souls are. However, the astral tissues of animal souls aren’t very compatible with the astral souls of the Theocrats, so they are not a good food source.

History

Third-stage Theocrats tend to be short-lived, except that they also receive some nourishment from the psychic energy generated by their worshippers, which is better for them than the animal souls alone. Even more important, most of the major third-stage religions have had some fourth-stage components as well. This was especially true of the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, Hindus, and Western Aryan Pagans. Judaism and Vedanta eventually evolved into fully-developed fourth-stage religions. The others survived
for a long time with a mixture of the two. One of the chief characteristics of all third-stage Theocratic religions was that their practices were not much concerned with the condition of life after death. Religious practice in third-stage religions was concerned almost entirely with gaining the favor of the Gods during earthly life, not with life after death.
The Theocrats running such religions didn’t know how to enslave souls on the astral plane, so they ignored them. Instead, they programmed living people to send them the souls of sacrificed animals, and to broadcast psychic energy during orgiastic rituals.

Fourth Stage

The fourth stage of Theocratic religion is the one represented by all the major modern religions. Its most important characteristic is that the Theocrats use religious mind control to delude souls into deliberately putting themselves under Theocratic control after death, thinking they are entering “eternal bliss in Heaven” or “union with the Godhead.” I cannot leave this topic without drawing a comparison with the stages of religion as outlined by Paul Von Ward in Gods, Genes, and Consciousness.

Note that “religion” does not equate with “Theocracy” as defined in War in Heaven.
1 The Theocracy is a particular group of beings and a power
structure. It is largely non-physical.
2 Religion is a social activity, seemingly organized by humans in response to a sensed divinity (in the case of modern religions), but putatively fostered and controlled by the Theocracy. Von Ward’s information is derived from a liberal analysis of historical and archaeological data.
From his sources, he constructs a model of intervention into a preexisting naturalistic human culture. The model of Griffith’s presentation is derived from non-physical players who can view the Theocrats on their level of being and action. The stages described by Griffith are as they are seen from the inside, as it were, and in terms of the needs and aims of the Theocracy, for whom the Gods of religions are fictionalized stand-ins.
A crucial difference between the two scenarios is in the nature of the ABs (Advanced Beings). Griffith’s Theocrats would definitely qualify as belonging to the class of Von Ward’s ABs, but they did not come swooping down onto humanity in its naturalistic state, as Von Ward suggests. Rather, in the War in Heaven scenario, they were already present at that stage.
Note: The dialogs between Kyle Griffith and his guides from the Invisible College, as quoted or characterized in this section of the notes and throughout the book, may give the impression that English is the common language used between astral entities.
Of course this cannot be true, and even the status of language as we know it would be dubious. Indeed, Griffith clarifies this issue in a private communication:
“…neither the mind contained in the embodied astral soul nor the astral minds of disembodied spirits use English or any other human language. Instead, they use entirely different “pre-verbal” symbols to encode information.
The speech center in the physical mind then translates these into ordinary human language.”
The name “Invisible College” is just a collective term in common use on the astral plane to describe all disembodied spirits who are not members of Theocratic bands and are not merely lost souls wandering around helpless because they can’t function effectively in the spirit world.
A synonym in wide use is “free spirits,” which contains play on words because “free” is used in two senses at once. It means, “free of Theocratic control” simultaneously with “free to move around the astral plane at will and communicate telepathically with other spirits.”
There are three main groups of spirits in the Invisible College: enlightened ones, magicians, and space people.

Enlightened Ones


Most of these spirits were highly advanced in spiritual knowledge and the use of their psychic powers during life, but they were also devout believers in some sect of the Eastern religious system that includes Vedanta and Buddhism. They were wise enough to refuse to join the Theocratic bands associated with their particular sect after death, because they could psychically perceive the enslavement and exploitation going on in the various Heavens.
(Few of the Western occultists who have called themselves “Illuminati” or some other synonym of “enlightened ones” join this group after physical death; most become magicians or Theocrats.)

The enlightened ones could be very useful to the cause of the Invisible College, but few of them are willing to stay on the astral plane and help actively fight Theocracy. They believe that the Theocratic perversions of Heaven they observe there, are illusions, and that perceiving such illusions proves that they are not yet advanced enough to liberate themselves from the cycle of rebirth. So they go back and live another earthly life, always hoping that the next time they die they will be worthy to enter the true Heaven.

They consider the War in Heaven an illusion and run away from it, back into earthly existence, which they also consider illusory.
The idea that much of the universe is “maya” or illusion is just Theocratic propaganda, and the refusal of the enlightened ones to help in the war against Theocracy is a perfect example of how effective it is. Physical life on Earth is no illusion, nor is existence as a disembodied spirit on the astral plane. What’s illusory is the claim of the Theocrats to be the Gods of various religions, and the lie that their Heavens offer the human soul eternal life.
What happens to saints in the Judeo-Christian religions after death?
Most become Theocrats if they are devout members of Theocratic churches during life.
However, some people who claimed to work miracles through faith in religious doctrine have become magician spirits after death. They were really occultists whose faith was merely a sham to allow them to work within the religious establishment.
However, even some believers in the Western religious systems whose psychic powers are highly developed are still quite vulnerable to being enslaved by the Theocrats after death, whereas similar people in the East often remain free of Theocratic control and go on incarnating. This is because the Eastern religions teach belief in reincarnation as part of their official doctrine.
Theocrats persuade many of the saints in western fourth-stage Theocratic religion to reincarnate. Often they become charismatic preachers who win large numbers of new converts, or religious leaders who increase the power of churches over the whole of society. In the process, they may become so corrupted by earthly power that they eventually become TheocratsMagicians, living or disembodied, tend to be practical people, not mystics or “true believers.” Most of the spirit guides who assist occultists all over the
world in obtaining spiritual knowledge and in learning conscious control of their psychic powers are magicians. The Theocrats are seriously frightened of the work these spirits do, which explains why Fundamentalist propaganda contains such stern warnings against contacting them.
This accounts for the propaganda against Ouija boards and other aids that help people achieve independent, consciously controlled contact with disembodied spirits. The warnings about demonic possession through engaging in mediumistic workings are especially ironic, as the spirit-contact that Fundamentalists achieve at services using religious mind control are much closer to the descriptions of “possession” than what happens to occultists when they hold mediumistic conversations with spirits.
But passing information to people with conscious mediumistic powers is one of the less important things magicians; do, because there aren’t very many conscious spirit mediums.


However, the magician spirits can communicate telepathically with a much larger segment of the living population on a strictly subconscious level, and do so very frequently. Such spirits are responsible for many experiences that people call prophetic dreams, flashes of insight, hunches, intuition, instinctive knowledge, etc. However, some of the experiences assigned these names are entirely the product of the person’s own The response:
“Would you rather be drafted into the army to fight against beings as evil as Hitler, or to fight on their side?”
Most Earth people simply don’t have the psychic strength of spiritual knowledge to remain neutral in the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. If the Invisible College doesn’t manipulate them subconsciously, then the Theocrats will do so anyway. Their own code of ethics applies the principle of “greatest good.” An individual manipulated by both sides is better off than if he or she were influenced by the Theocrats alone.
As to “informed consent,” this book and hundreds of similar attempts to communicate the same information are intended to provide the general public with the information they need to make a choice. They call this “making a personal breakthrough in spiritual consciousness.”
They want people to learn enough about how mind control operates to avoid situations that expose them to it.
Even now, when very few people are consciously aware of the nature of Theocracy and the forces opposing it, the Invisible College thinks their methods are still more ethical than those of the Theocrats and their religions. Brainwashing people with religious mind control is the Theocrats’ strategy of first choice, whereas the Invisible College employs .

but it’s still a major problem.
In many cases, people who had read a lot of occult literature during life put up more resistance to understanding the true nature of Theocracy than atheists, agnostics, and even some believers in orthodox religion. It’s actually easier to show religious people that their Gods are impostors than it is to show occultists that there are no “planes higher than the astral.” Many of them tell us, “OK, so some Heavens are really Hells of psychic vampirism. I’m going to keep looking until I find one that’s not.” Unfortunately, there are Theocratic bands specifically designed to entrap spirits like this, bands run by Theocrats who were occultists themselves during life.
Griffith observes that the Invisible College faces the same problems in dealing with people on the astral plane as he has in getting people on Earth to accept the information described in this book. There are thousands of years of false knowledge to overcome, and virtually every body of available spiritual information is heavily corrupted with Theocratic propaganda. It strikes him as miraculous that the Invisible College was able to start teaching such knowledge widely, both on the astral plane and on Earth.

Space People

Griffith’s guides state that about seven hundred years ago, scientists from their world established two-way contact with spirits on Earth’s astral plane. Accidents in interstellar transportation had already marooned quite a few extraterrestrial spirits on Earth, but they were not capable of communicating with the societies they’d come from.
(Ironically, psychic machines capable of establishing such communication existed on Earth’s astral plane,
but none of the spirits who came here by accident possessed the specialized skills for using them.)
Of course, such spirits were forced to reincarnate periodically, and every time they did so,they lost a
portion of their original memories. This meant that Earth people remained ignorant of the basic facts about spiritual reality, including the true nature of the Theocratic spirits who claim to be Gods. There were
always a few spirits around who knew the truth, but they were seldom able to communicate more than hints of it to others before they lost the memory of who they were and where they came from.

The two-way contact roughly coincided with the beginnings of modern Western civilization. There are numerous passages in occult literature from the late Middle Ages on about telepathic conversations between mediums and spirit entities who resemble modern UFO-contactees descriptions of space people much more than they do the traditional angels, demons, or spirits of deceased Earth people As to why the spirits from advanced civilizations couldn’t take some kind of direct action against the Theocrats right at the beginning, it simply wasn’t possible.

The space people don’t come here physically, but as naked spirits transmitted across vast distances. We come with a certain amount of knowledge, a small part of which we can communicate directly to Earth people, and with psychic powers that are highly trained but not especially powerful in terms of force.
The average Theocratic spirit is actually “stronger” than one of us in terms of sheer ability to radiate
psychic energy as a disembodied spirit.
The reason is that a normal spirit can transmit only limited amounts of astral energy through the psychic
powers – less than that which can be radiated by the psychic powers of a similar spirit incarnated in a
physical body. But Theocratic spirits are not bound by this limitation, because they don’t keep their astral
soul in a normal condition. Instead, they absorb energy from other spirits and grow as much as they can.
Abnormal growth gives them access to more internal astral energy and hence stronger psychic powers than a normal spirit possesses.

Satan

The whole mythology of Satan and the Rebellion of the Angels was the creation of spirits fighting Theocracy long ago, and the original teachings of the Buddha contain similar elements. Does using terms like “Satan” invite accusations of being “devil-worshippers?” They respond that they have good reason to use terms that encourage people to take a closer look at the Biblical myths about Satan.
But the Invisible College rejects “worship” as the term is usually defined:
“Absolute, unquestioning belief in and obedience to a spiritual being or a body of doctrine.” Individual
sovereignty is the most fundamental postulate of the philosophy of the Invisible College. Each person must assume full responsibility for making value judgments on ethical and political matters. The Invisible College never advocates absolute obedience to ANY authority, even their own. They urge people to resist orders from leaders if they disagree with them, and to use laws, customs, and ideologies only as guides for making their own decisions on specific issues. Assuming personal responsibility for running their own lives makes people wiser and stronger.
Satan has a much more favorable image in literature and folk tradition in all the Judeo-Christian cultures
than you’d expect him to have if he was really the archetype of reversed Biblical morality that religious
doctrine claims he is.

Look at all the folk tales in which the Devil simply opposes the puritanical, “blue-nose” aspects of Christian morality that say that sex and other sensual pleasures are intrinsically evil.
The Theocrats want religious believers to feel guilty every time they feel sexual desire or enjoy any
“pleasures of the flesh.” The guilt literally addicts them to attending church services that subject them to
religious mind control. When the Devil of folk tradition says that sensual pleasure is not immoral in itself,
then he is actually advocating an ethical code superior to the Judeo-Christian oneThe core of Jewish doctrine from the time of Moses down to the present has been that Jehovah is both an angry, judgmental deity who condemns people for Original Sin, and a loving God who forgives their sins after various acts of faith and ritual atonement.
“Was the Hebrew Pagan deity Satan originally a God in serpentine form like Damballa and some of the other African trickster deities?” Possibly. We really don’t know.

What we’re telling you here is mostly derived from our knowledge of modern religious and occult works,
supplemented to some extent by rumors that have circulated on the astral plane for thousands of years.
We have no exact historical details on any of this, just educated guesses. However, the choice of a serpent
image for the deity that tempted people into disobeying Jehovah is obvious if you realize that it was enemies of Theocracy who dictated the myth in the form in which we know it.
The serpent was intended as a symbol of reincarnation, because snakes shed their skins, leaving behind a
casting that resembles a dead snake to a casual glance, while the animal crawls on about its business with a shiny, new, young-looking skin. The process by which the Theocrats dictate “holy writ” to religious believers is, like that used for this book, some form of automatic writing or other mediumistic reception of data from spirits on the astral plane. The only difference is that the spirits involved are Theocrats instead of members of the Invisible College. Griffith realizes that he has to be responsible for that, to ensure that what he receives is internally consistent and agrees with his own rational judgment based on the evidence
available in his memory.

Jehovah says, “Right and wrong are only what I tell you they are, and they are absolute values that never vary.”
Satan, on the other hand, says, “Use your intellect to determine what is right and wrong in a given situation, because such value judgments are highly dependent on the environment you’re in at a given time.” Since the latter statement is rational and the former irrational, people are put into conflict with Theocratic religious doctrine every time they use their intellect to make rational value judgments. The Theocrats don’t want people to become consciously aware of the basically illogical nature of absolute moral doctrine, but there is nothing they can do about it. The more highly developed a person’s rational intellect, the less likely he or she is to accept religious doctrine on “blind faith.” The Theocrats tried to obscure the information about using the intellect to make ethical decisions on a rational basis. They added many extraneous details to the mythology about Satan. For example, they included the idea that telepathy, mediumship, and other human psychic powers are either “works of God” or “works of the Devil.” This allows them to forbid religious believers to communicate with spirits hostile to Theocracy without revealing various facts about spiritual reality that the Theocrats wish to conceal. However, even gradual reprogramming can produce some extremely evil and violent people if it continues over a whole lifetime. There are plenty of people in this country right now who are emotionally and morally capable of “killing a Commie for Christ” or acting on the literal meaning of the Biblical passage, “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.

“The Tree of Life. (Life is immortal from origin.)

As the serpent myth represents the concept that people have the right to determine good and evil for themselves through the free exercise of the conscious intellect, the Tree of Life represents certain essential details of the breakthrough information – the concepts that people can only achieve immortality through reincarnation and that the “eternal life in heaven” offered by deities is a delusion.
However, you must remember that the Tree of Life is mentioned only so the Theocrats can gloat that they
prevented people from gaining this knowledge. (Mathilda)
The secret referred to in this passage is not just mmortality, but the complete knowledge that Theocratic
spirits have about the nature of the soul, reincarnation, psychic powers, etc.

Buddha

The beginning of Buddhism is a similar case in which enemies of Theocracy tried to help people make the
breakthrough but didn’t quite succeed. After the Buddha achieved enlightenment, he made some statements that seemed self-contradictory, at least on the surface. He attributed his spiritual progress to his own efforts, not to a “gift” from omnipotent deities. He also stated in so many words that ordinary people could achieve enlightenment through practicing the proper psychic development techniques.
But at the same time, his statements about reincarnation appeared paradoxical. He said that achieving
enlightenment meant that he no longer needed to reincarnate, but he also said that he would continue to do so to help other people achieve enlightenment. They state that what the Buddha called his enlightenment is actually a version of the breakthrough – that is, he became consciously aware of exactly what the Vedantic Gods really are and how they operate. But the words in which his followers wrote down his knowledge are somewhat confusing. (airl)
They understood the most important part of his message quite clearly: the path to enlightenment is the
disciplined practice of various psychic development techniques. Notice too that the Buddha himself didn’t
limit his followers in which specific techniques they used, because part of his knowledge must have been that different techniques work better for a given individual than others. He was quite vague on this, and Buddhists ever since have practiced a wide variety of techniques drawn from Yoga, Tantra, and other sources within Vedanta.
However, the basic teachings of Buddha are anti-deistic whereas those of Vedanta were highly deistic.
Many modern Buddhists believe that if they personally achieve enlightenment, their souls will merge with the soul of Buddha into Nirvana, a “state of blissful nothingness.”
Vedantic doctrine in the time of the Buddha already taught that enlightened souls would merge with Brahma or some other God. This doctrine was grafted onto the Buddha’s teachings after his death, when Buddhism was taken over by the Vedantic Theocrats.
Buddhism was originally founded to fight Theocracy, as were Gnosticism and some forms of early Christianity.
The Buddha implied by his own example that the enlightened were capable of transcending reincarnation but deliberately chose not to do so in order to be of service to the human race. The Buddha realized he could become a Theocrat and remain on the astral plane indefinitely, but he refused to do so for ethical reasons.
This interpretation of the early Buddhist teaching is possible for people who have already made the
breakthrough from some other source, but it is not stated clearly enough in the writings themselves to make finding and understanding it very easy.
Even though he founded a major religion, the enlightenment the Buddha achieved was still only a partial
breakthrough. Much of what he learned from the Invisible College was on a subconscious level; it is reflected indirectly in his various teachings and practices as described by his followers after his death when they wrote the early literature, but much of it never came out in so many words in his actual teachings.
He didn’t actually say that the Vedantic Gods are evil beings who eat souls, or that enlightened souls need to reincarnate for their own good as well as that of living people. This vital information is implied, but never directly stated. For example, the Buddha did teach that animal sacrifices and “austere practices” – by which he meant self-torture, starvation, etc. – are not mandatory for one to achieve enlightenment; but he didn’t antagonize the Vedantic majority around him, or their Gods, by saying that “The Gods are evil.”
However, it is easy to misunderstand what he was actually doing, which was to separate ethics from the
process of achieving enlightenment.
In other words, says Griffith, he said living ethically was important, but not directly related to the
psychic development that causes enlightenment. Again, this interpretation is possible from reading the
Buddhist literature, but the point is not made clearly enough for most people to understand it.
Certainly most modern Buddhists don’t.
Modern Buddhism, except for a few occult groups associated with it, is a Theocratic religion.
Buddhists feel that their ethical conduct as well as their psychic development practices will earn them
enlightenment by pleasing various incarnations of the Buddha, all of which are imagined to co-exist as Gods similar to the Vedantic Gods.
This is not what Buddha taught at all.
it wasn’t possible to turn most of those people into high-level psychics or magicians or to teach them much about the true nature of Theocracy;
they just wanted to turn them into what would be defined in the United States today as “good average citizens”.
Two types of consciousness-raising programs were used within the lodges:
1 one trained initiates in the lower degrees to become rational atheists and political liberals;
2 the other, more advanced, program, taught high-level occult knowledge and conscious control over the psychic powers. The first of these programs always had many more members than the second. Initiates who learned to accept the Masonic philosophy often became immune to falling into a religious trance during the rituals. This is an example of the difference between the way the Invisible College reprograms people’s The Invisible College continually plants information in the subconscious that says, “Think for yourself. Don’t accept anything without evidence. Do what you feel is best under the circumstances rather then just accepting what someone tells you. You can become a better person if you only learn how to do so. Judge yourself realistically: you are neither a self-righteous saint nor a miserable sinner, but simply an ordinary human being with free will and control over your own destiny.” This is almost the opposite of the Theocrats’ programming that takes place during Fundamentalist Christian services. They want worshippers to say “Thy will be done,” and submit completely to the telepathic influences they receive, as well as to obey religious doctrine to the letter.

The Christian code took people deeper into bondage to the Theocrats; the Masonic code liberated them from that bondage without substituting any other master for “God.” What’s most important here is that the Masonic initiates were taught to receive increasing amounts of positive reinforcement from their material and social environment, and decreasing amounts from religious mind control. The idea that people can significantly improve the quality of life on Earth by their own efforts is one of the most important strategies that the Invisible College uses in fighting Theocracy. Its strongest point is that they don’t need to use subconscious emotional manipulation or intellectual persuasion to get people to accept it.
Just living and working within a modern technological society proves the basic validity of a humanistic philosophy by direct environmental conditioning. On the conscious level, people may think about the problems modern society has not yet solved and yearn for “the good old days”; but on a deeper level, they know they are as well off, on the average, as human beings on this planet have ever been.
Theocratic propaganda and religious mind control have great difficulty extinguishing this intuitive feeling, because environmental conditioning rooted in physical causes it reality.

So the disembodied spirits in the Invisible College telepathically manipulated the subconscious minds of leaders in the Masonic and Rosicrucian lodges to design their rituals and doctrines in certain ways. Many of the individual elements of these rituals and doctrines were drawn from the writings and practices of previous occult groups, including some that were quite advanced in both spiritual knowledge and psychic
training techniques. These occultists included Cabbalists, Gnostics, Alchemists, Hermetics; influences from all these spiritual systems are still visible today in the Masonic and Rosicrucian doctrines.
There are spiritual knowledge and psychic-training techniques brought from China and India by the Islamic Sufi sect and taught to the medieval Knights Templar. There’s knowledge inherited from the ancient Egyptians, Hebrews, and Babylonians, taught to the Masons and Rosicrucians by Cabbalists, Gnostics, and Astrologers. Possessing advanced occult knowledge doesn’t automatically make a person morally virtuous. Even today, some of the advanced occult lodges derived from the Masonic-
Rosicrucian traditions are “Black Lodges” (lodges under the control of the Theocrats).

It’s extremely important to realize that Theocratic enslavement and psychic vampirism are not things that happen only to disembodied spirits after death.
Living people can do virtually the same things to other living people. This can be done in a Christian context, as Jim Jones did with the People’s Temple, or in the context of almost any other religious or occult group.
Many of the modern cults are also examples of this Theocracy-on-Earth:
1 the Moonies,
2 the Rajneesh Cult,
3 etc.
However, such groups aren’t always openly identified as religious or occult organizations. The Symbionese Liberation Army was such a group, and so was the Manson Family. So are many terrorist groups, especially those in the service of Islamic Fundamentalists.
A number of present-day rock groups are actually bands of living Theocrats, enslaving their fans and draining energy from them at concerts. This last type of living Theocrat is especially dangerous right now, because such people can influence a large number of people who listen to their music on records or over the radio, using electronic mind control techniques that we will describe later. One of the worst things about this movement is that some of these people have made the breakthrough.
They know what they are doing, and they still do it.

The illusion of achieving immortality for the ego is a very powerful corrupting influence. You can see why many occultists wouldn’t want to listen.
The quality and completeness of a person’s breakthrough knowledge are very important. Until very recently, communicating many of the individual details that constitute the breakthrough has been extremely difficult.
It is much harder to understand Theocracy without the background of many terms and concepts from recent scientific discoveries: computer science, behavioral psychology, modern physics, etc.
Government policy and general opinion in this society now treat alcoholism more as a medical and psychiatric problem than as a moral or criminal problem.
This is actually a significant step forward for the whole civilization: learning how to deal with a social problem to minimize the total harm it does to the society.
Yet while Western society deals with the alcohol problem in a reasonably sensible and sophisticated manner, it fails to apply the knowledge learned from the “noble experiment” to psychoactive drugs other than alcohol. The Invisible College let the Sixties Movement stop when they had reached the limit of what could be programmed through the use of psychedelics. It was extremely difficult just to program large numbers of LSD users with a set of vague idealistic principles that would make their opinion-forming and decision-making processes more tolerant and flexible. It was totally impossible to start teaching a detailed, sophisticated ideology.
The major reason for this is that the Invisible College was working almost entirely through people’s subconscious minds, so that they were absorbing short strings of data at random places in their “mental files.” As long as these messages were simple, clear, and positive, then they did more good than harm. It generally made people more socially and politically liberal. If they had tried using more complex material, it would have merely confused the recipients, probably to the point of interfering with ordinary mental functions.
If they hadn’t started the telepathic communications, several of these people would have accepted the information about Sirius and the Dogon as hard proof of physical visitations to Earth by Ancient Astronauts. As it was, the Invisible College managed to complicate the issue in their minds, and may have kept them from seriously misleading the significant number of people who regard their opinions as authoritative.

Griffith: During the Sixties, Timothy Leary often said that LSD helps people unlock cosmic secrets that are encoded in our DNA; and at the time, I found this concept completely incomprehensible.

But he’s still saying the same thing today. For example, he said in NEUROLOGIC just a few years ago that, “Most of the characteristics formerly attributed to the soul now describe the functions of DNA, whose complex messages originate from higher intelligences in other solar systems. The mission of DNA is to evolve nervous systems able to escape from the doomed planet and contact manifestations of the same amino acid seeding that have evolved in other solar systems.”
What is the relationship between the concept in this quotation, the acid mutants, and the cosmology that you’ve already given? Invisible College: First of all, there was never a physical seeding of amino acids to start organic life. What actually happened was that disembodied spirits went to planets that were ready for life to develop, and created the amino acids by telekinetic manipulation of existing organic molecules. They assembled these amino acids into physical DNA using their own astral DNA molecules as templates.
When Leary and other scientists theorize that the physical DNA contains an evolutionary program that automatically causes new species to develop, they are slightly misinterpreting messages that we put in their subconscious minds.

What we’re really telling all these people is simply, “Try to develop conscious control over your psychic powers during your present lifetime, so you’ll have a better chance of surviving after death.” LSD and other psychedelic drugs are a dangerous but useful tool for doing this, and so are many psychic training practices derived from occultism and religion. We do want people to evolve; but the evolution is spiritual, not physical.
However, there’s a lot more to the War in Heaven than just a struggle between the Invisible College and the Theocratic spirits who operate through organized religion and try to retard material progress towards an advanced civilization on this planet. What’s actually been going on during the last twenty years [as of 1988] is that the Theocrats are preparing to achieve their final goal. Throughout recorded history, the Theocrats have falsely pretended to be Gods. Now, because of the Earth’s extremely high and unstable population, they actually have a chance to assume Godlike powers.

Hitchiking Spirits

Elements of this and following sections concerning the nature of spiritual beings, especially “the basic cosmology about the origin and destiny of the human soul,” could not have been given earlier. Also the Invisible College did not want to describe certain things they intend to do in the future before they were fully prepared to do them.
The technical preparations have now been completed, their psychic network is now in place and functioning, and it is safe to tell more.
Some advanced civilizations have a form of rapid interstellar travel that makes it possible for disembodied spirits to travel from one world to another at speeds much faster than the speed of light.
When they get to their destination, they incarnate there. However, such interstellar travel by spirits involves risks, and they sometimes get lost in transit and end up on a planet other than the one they intended to visit. If the equipment needed to project spirits over interstellar distances does not exist there, they are marooned. If spirits find themselves marooned on a planet devoid of life, they eventually die, unless other spiritual beings are able to rescue them. Accidents like this do not leave spirits marooned in empty interstellar space because the method of travel requires there to be a large mass of physical matter at the far end. The problem arises when that mass isn’t the one intended.
In earlier communications that are not part of this book, the Invisible College has said This statement was true as far as it went, but it didn’t mention that such civilizations were very different from theirs – as different as a colony of social insects such as bees or ants is from a herd of horses or a pack of wolves.
They had also mentioned (elsewhere) that the civilizations that sent out such original missions of creation seemed to be enemies of the civilizations ancestral to their own, and that their (the Invisible College’s) ancestors were partly responsible for driving them away. But they didn’t tell the full story. In the present section, they continue describing how spirits create organic life on planets that are ready for it and then guide the process of evolution until intelligent beings develop. But they point out that everything they say about the origin and evolution of life on Earth is just scientific speculation. They’re reasonably sure it’s accurate, but it’s not based on detailed historical records.

Griffith asks why the Invisible College doesn’t have access to the histories of all the advanced civilizations going back millions of years?
Surely all such societies would have sophisticated equipment for storing information, better than our present computers here on Earth, so information about all of them would be easy to obtain. Even if civilizations are always rising and falling, communication between them should ensure that history and other information gets passed along. After all, we Earth people, primitive as we are, still possess many important written records of our own vanished civilizations. But we don’t, his guides point out.
We Earth people have a few written records from the ancient Greeks, Hindus, Chinese, etc., but there are still huge gaps in our knowledge.
To answer the question: Advanced civilizations don’t use electronic computers, nor do they store much of their data in durable physical forms equivalent to books, photographic film, sound recordings, etc. The equipment they use to store and process information is made of living organic matter and is relatively fragile, so it’s not that hard for specific historical knowledge to be lost. Also, the symbolic systems for storing data are neither alphabetic nor digital, but are versions of the system used for memory storage in the human brain.
Such systems are extremely complex, and translation from one system to another is often very difficult. As long as a particular civilization is viable, it retains the information that the people in it want to retain. If it breaks up, the souls of the people who survive the breakup go to other civilizations, which have their own history, their own store of information they consider valuable. So specific information about a particular planet is often not available.
There is no need to visit planets in spaceships and “seed” them physically.
But this does not mean that organic life is always of the same type as on Earth… or that DNA “as we know it” is the basis for all life in the universe.
There are other kinds of organic life on the surfaces of other kinds of planets, and also non-organic forms who live in the interiors of stars, comets, gas clouds, and other bodies of matter. They all have different kinds of souls, composed of different kinds of astral matter, and there is almost no communication between the different kinds of life.

Even telepathic communication, while barely possible, is not really feasible, because the different types of organic and astral life use very different kinds symbols for communication, and also think at different rates of speed.

Griffith asks about the possibility of building translating equipment, as we do to allow data exchange between different computers. The response is that the analogy doesn’t really apply. All of our computers were designed by and for human beings.
The common denominator between two different computers is the person who understands both. There is no such common denominator between people and vastly different forms of intelligent life. The human astral soul is both an alien parasite or symbiote, and a natural part of a human being. All mammals have astral souls, but the astral soul of a human being is extremely different from the astral soul of an ape. Human beings were radically altered by psychokinetic genetic manipulation to become physically different from other apes. The brain, the hands, the sense organs, the general musculature, and the organs used in standing and walking erect are all very different in humans from those in apes. However, the scientists who recently started mapping the DNA structure of anthropoid apes found it much more similar to that of humans than they had expected.
And when genetic science begins to learn the details of how DNA structure is typically changed by random mutations, the scientists will discover that the genetic differences between apes and humans don’t fit those patterns. They’ll realize that the particular loops in the DNA molecule that cause the genetic differences between people and apes have an artificial or alien look to them. That’s because they actually are artificial, and spirits made the changes from other worlds who were familiar with genetic patterns different from those on Earth. The somatic soul of the human species was genetically altered just as radically as the body was, and is also very different from the somatic soul of an ape. The human somatic soul’s nervous system is much more highly developed for transmitting and using astral energy, and the attachment point for the astral soul is much more highly developed. This attachment point allows any human astral soul to incarnate, including those used to incarnating in bodies very different from human bodies on Earth. In other words, there is a sort of standardization among human-type bodies on many different worlds to allow them to be linked to a wide variety of astral souls. There are often problems of astral tissue compatibility if body and soul are too different, but it is still possible for many different types of astral souls from many different worlds to incarnate on Earth.
One of the chief characteristics of intelligent beings compared with similar non-intelligent beings is that both the body and the astral soul show strong evidence of neoteny. For example, many scientists on Earth have noticed that an adult human being retains many physical characteristics found in an anthropoid ape during infancy or childhood, but lost in the ape as it matures. Many technologically advanced races of people use genetic engineering (modification of the genes before conception) and biological engineering (modification of the body during embryological development by the use of hormones and other chemicals) to repress the development of the secondary sexual characteristics and to increase the neotenous characteristics. This is why so many dreams and visions of space people show them as rather androgynous.

There are three reasons why humans living under primitive conditions were genetically engineered to have less sheer muscular strength than ordinary apes.
1 The first is that if the process is properly done, they gain considerably in coordination and are are much better at doing delicate manipulations with their hands.
2 Second, having less muscular strength stimulates people’s intellectual development by encouraging them to use tools and develop technology.
3 The third reason is that neoteny significantly slows down the maturation and aging process, giving people more time to develop their minds than animals have.
Since humans are physically immature and dependent on others for so long while they are growing up, this also gives them an opportunity to learn many things from their elders that they might not learn if they became independent adults sooner. Advanced human civilizations inhibit the secondary sexual characteristics and certain kinds of muscular development even more, for exactly the same reasons.
They gain a longer lifespan, better general health, and physical equality between the genders; and they lose very little, because they don’t need great physical strength nearly as much as they need good balance, agility, and coordination. If such a body is kept in good general muscle tone, it has greater endurance against fatigue than a more heavily muscled body and is more resistant to many kinds of injuries. Also, most advanced human societies reproduce entirely by ectogenesis, so there is no need for people to be capable of ordinary mammalian reproduction. Most advanced societies have separated sexuality from reproduction.
Why create the human body by having it grow inside an adult as a parasite, when it can be grown much more efficiently in an artificial environment?
Notice the paradoxical attitude that so many Earth women have about bearing children: on one hand, they know the future of the human race may depend on it, but on the other, they also know it’s damaging to the body and seriously interferes with other aspects of adult life. 86re13

Especially, pregnancy and child rearing are ready-made excuses for placing women in an inferior social status.


However, sexuality itself still exists in all advanced human societies for emotional, social, and psychic reasons. The androgynous people you see in your dreams are all sexually functional males or females. On the average, advanced humans tend to be more sexually active than primitive humans, because their physical and mental health are better, and because they don’t have to work as hard for basic survival. Many Earth people have an instinctive feeling that the soul is an “alien parasite” attached to the body. The somatic soul of a human being contains many structures not found in the souls of other primates. Some of these produce a form of neoteny in the body; others could cause the brain to develop into a high-quality bio-computer; and still others allow astral souls of many different types to incarnate in human bodies.
This gives many people the feeling that there is something alien about the soul.

Gods

The Invisible College has stated that Gods don’t exist. That statement is completely true in the context in which they used it.
Throughout human history on Earth, some spirits have pretended to be Gods, using a definition of the term that allows them to rule over human beings without being accountable for their actions. These definitions assert that Gods are greatly superior to humans in wisdom and morality, encouraging people to let deities deny them their rights to consent of the governed. However, the human spirits making these claims are simply lying.

They are not superior to ordinary people except in possessing certain forms of knowledge and power; and in moral terms they are significantly inferior because their very existence depends on enslaving and exploiting living people and other disembodied spirits. Since pretending to be Gods is one of the chief sources of Theocratic power, the Invisible College attacked it very strongly in an earlier section of this book.

Elementals

Elementals and Gods are the same kind of entity structurally, though they differ enormously in personality and behavior. You might say that Gods are civilized elementals. So, for our descriptions of how the astral bodies and minds of these beings function, we’ll use the general term “Elementals.”
On one level, Elementals are specialized types of Theocratic bands. They are very large composite spirits containing thousands of human astral souls very closely linked together. On another, they are sentient creatures in their own right, with personalities and emotions quite different from those of ordinary human beings.
One thing we want to stress: Elementals and humans are not two races of beings, but different forms of one race. The astral DNA template of both is identical, but humans are the individual form and Elementals are the composite form. Composite physical life forms exist on Earth. The bees, ants, termites, and other social insects are the most intelligent of these. The Elementals bear the same relationship to humans as an ordinary honey-bee colony does to a primitive, solitary bee or wasp.
The nature of group minds depends on the amount of control they have over their individual members. There are roughly four levels of control, though each “intergrades” with the next.
These can be verbalized as cooperation, persuasion, coercion, and compulsion.
1 Cooperation is working with others because your mutual interests coincide, and the joint effort is of mutual benefit without major concessions on the part of either party involved.
2 Persuasion is essentially barter: “I’ll do this for you if you’ll do that for me.”
3 Coercion is similar, but the barter is negative: “I’ll do harm to you unless you do some particular thing for me.”
4 Compulsion is direct control of someone else that transcends that other person’s volition.
Earthly societies operate mostly by cooperation and persuasion, with some coercion and only a small amount of compulsion. A bee colony operates entirely by compulsion, almost in the same way that your brain operates your body through the nervous system. Human societies resist becoming a true composite entity, for two reasons.

  1. First, people have highly developed brains and are fully intelligent as individuals.
  2. Second, each person has a separate astral soul with an astral will that resists outside control. It is possible to control the minds of living people by psychic compulsion under certain circumstances, but this is very difficult. People strongly resist such control because of their highly developed brains and souls. A bee colony is a composite entity because individual bees don’t have large enough brains to support true intelligence and because they don’t have individual astral souls.
    A colony of social insects has a single astral soul that is linked to the body of every individual in it.
    The individual uses telepathy to pass information to the astral mind of the hive. This group mind processes and stores the information received from individual bees and does the thinking for the entire hive, passing down its orders by telepathy One example is the colony’s ability to direct the physical changes that individual bees go through during the course of their lives to perform different specialized functions: gathering food, cleaning and repairing the hive, rearing the young, defending the colony from enemies, swarming to produce a new colony, etc. A bee colony is actually better organized in terms of division of labor than a human society. Human societies are superficially similar to composite entities, but they aren’t true composites, because individual people have independent intelligence and will. However, the human astral soul has a strong potential for forming composite entities while it is in a disembodied state, because souls can literally link themselves together, as was described in the section on Theocratic bands. This is another important reason why Theocratic spirits don’t achieve true immortality. The longer a Theocratic band lasts, the more it develops into a composite entity with a mind of its own. At first, the controlling Theocrat completely dominates the group mind, but eventually that mind becomes powerful enough to become independent, and the band becomes an elemental. We’ve already described how an increasing population forms new souls. If there is an abundance of human astral souls at a low stage of development in the astral plane for the Theocrats to recruit or feed upon, Theocratic bands tend to grow larger and larger, making the creation of new Elementals more common.
    Right now, Earth has more Elemental spirits than it ever had before in its history. And this is a very dangerous situation. As long as the Earth’s population goes on increasing, the existing elementals and Theocratic bands have a steady supply of new souls to feed upon or recruit.
  3. But when massive human die-offs occur, vast numbers of new souls will be stranded on the astral plane at once. This overabundance of souls will cause thousands of embryonic Elemental spirits to start growing very rapidly towards adulthood. Once a young Elemental reaches a certain critical mass it becomes able to seize and capture souls psychokinetically against their will, something that ordinary Theocratic bands cannot do because they lack the necessary psychic energy. Almost every human culture has produced some version of the saying, “A man is a God in embryo,” and it’s true. However, the astral template also can program the soul to act as a sovereign individual, which is why there are free spirits as well as Theocrats. The extension of this influence to living people creates the desire for freedom and individuality on Earth as well. Elementals don’t have peers in the natural cycle of their evolution because they are the composite form of another race. We individual humans are their parents as well as their children, but we also have a destiny of our own which conflicts with theirs.
    This is why the space people interfere with this natural cycle of human evolution. They raise Elementals to be fully human and civilized by teaching them to accept a symbiotic relationship with individual humans. Remember, an Elemental is similar in structure to a Theocratic band, and it has a place in its astral body for individual humans to attach to it.
    In a primitive, animalistic Elemental, these attachment points remain empty when the creature reaches maturity. To produce a God, human astral souls attach themselves to these points as the Elemental is growing and try to control it. If it overcomes them and remains an animal, then it may have to be killed. If the spirits win and tame the Elemental, it becomes a God.

Another thing the Elohim do before they leave a planet is to create an elaborate and self-sustaining network of astral machines, which remains there for future use.

Much of what the Invisible College is doing on your planet right now makes use of such machines, which were left on Earth’s astral plane by the Elohim when one of the Gods seeded your planet in the remote past. It might have been hundreds of thousands of years ago, or millions of years.
The devices are constructed of organic astral matter. They are machines, but they are also alive as plants are alive. This is why they were able to survive for unimaginable periods of time. The equipment is capable of defending itself from Theocrats and all but the largest Elementals, and of sustaining itself indefinitely. It possesses an artificial intelligence like a computer, but does not have true volition or creativity. It repairs itself but it does not reproduce or evolve.
Are Elohim and space people different races, or the same?

Invisible College: We are both the same race and species in a genetic sense, because our astral souls are capable of incarnating in the same types of bodies. There is not a single race of space people or a single race of Elohim, though; there are actually several of each that we are in contact with. Your occult literature has for many centuries used the word “Elohim” to refer to the beings we’re talking about, just as it has called space people angels. In general, the difference between the space people and the Elohim is simply that those who live in space value physical technology and life in a physical body more than the Elohim do.


Space people normally incarnate immediately after death, though they can function quite well in the disembodied state if there is reason to do so. The space people possess a high level of psychic technology, much of it learned from their friends among the Elohim people, but rely on it less to meet their total needs than they rely on physical technology. It should be pointed out that these differences between cultures are matters of esthetics, not morality or level of evolution. Both groups are good in the moral sense and highly advanced in the evolutionary sense. Of course, the cultural differences between the two groups often create political friction arising out of conflicting goals and values, but this can be beneficial and stimulating to both sides if handled correctly on the social level. An individual can change from one group to the other, as a person on Earth might emigrate to another country and become naturalized. Whole societies have made this change in the past on the collective level, and adopted a new technology and culture.
Over the last six hundred years, both space people and Elohim
have been coming to Earth in ever-increasing numbers. Many of your greatest minds were directed by astral souls from advanced extraterrestrial civilizations. And your whole modern Western civilization is the creation of our political organization on Earth, the Invisible College. Griffith: This confirms all these rumors I’ve heard about Earth’s is used by other worlds as a hospital, or insane asylum. But doesn’t the presence here of people with Theocratic mentalities and advanced extraterrestrial knowledge make survival and spiritual development more difficult for the native Earth people? How do you justify this ethically?
/Invisible College: Most of the memories are removed from the exiles’ minds before they are sent here, so they don’t have the same type of knowledge that our regular agents have. The majority of them have a vague feeling of being alien to earthly society, but very few possess conscious memories of life on other worlds, and they have no technical knowledge at all. However, they do possess high intelligence and control over their psychic powers: these are essential functions of the astral mind that we don’t have the right to tamper with.


Griffith: Science-fiction writers often assume that advanced societies handle their crime problems by reprogramming people’s minds to rehabilitate them.
Why don’t you do this to your criminals instead of sending them here?
Invisible College: We do employ such methods, but only on the less serious cases. Every advanced society that’s tried to eliminate all crime and insanity from the population has ended up destroying itself. It’s impossible to program destructive tendencies out of the mind without also eliminating good qualities like creativity. So exile is the lesser evil. And having a few extraterrestrial Theocrats here doesn’t affect the average Earth person at all: They’re really no different from your own native Theocrats, and there’s no shortage of those. The presence of such people on Earth really has no overall effect on events here, especially since about half of the exiles eventually rehabilitate themselves and fight on our side.
Griffith: My personal psychic experiences and my past-life memories tell me that the exiled criminals and the agents sent here to direct the War in Heaven are only a small minority among the extraterrestrial spirits now incarnating on Earth. What kind of people are the rest? There are two main groups: refugees from physical, wars and disasters, and young souls seeking development in the challenge of this hostile environment. Both come here to be in at the beginning of a new civilization. Unless the control of Theocratic spirits over your technology can be broken fairly soon, the Earth’s biosphere will be seriously damaged before the Last Days. It’s going to be a near thing.
Griffith: Are you referring to things like the destruction of the ozone layer by organic halogen compounds, the greenhouse effect, etc.?
These are only two out of a long list of symptoms, and not even the worst ones. For example, some of your medical researchers are becoming aware that insecticides and other poisonous chemicals cause mutations in bacteria and viruses that create new diseases, but they have not yet realized just how great a potential danger this is. Over fifty million years ago, the dinosaurs became extinct because of diseases caused by chemical pollutants released by the impact of large numbers of comets with the Earth during a visit of the Sun’s astronomical companion, the “Nemesis Star.”
Griffith: What happens if the Earth becomes uninhabitable after the majority of the population dies off during the last Days and the new Gods depart? It may be possible to start an advanced civilization of reasonable size on space colonies, as has happened on many other worlds. This is the most probable outcome, the way things look right now. However, if there is largescale nuclear or biological warfare, the last Days may come so soon and be so short that this won’t be possible. That’s the worst-case scenario, and if it happens, we will simply have to evacuate as many souls as possible to other worlds, using the same psychic equipment that we use to control the Elementals.

Griffith: Well, that sounds better than the prospect of
universal death that everyone on Earth would face if the extraterrestrial spirits weren’t here.

Invisible College: It is, but it still isn’t a good situation.
Only astral souls above a certain state of development can be teleported out of here.
Weaker souls would not survive the journey. Now, all of the agents and immigrants and even the rehabilitated exiles are strong enough to survive the journey out as they survived the journey in, but many Earth people aren’t. This means that many ordinary Earth people will die under these conditions… but
they will survive if this planet continues to support physical human life, or if it’s possible to build space colonies in time.
The use of the term black magic for psychic workings performed with the aid of psychic technology has a similar grounding in operational reality. The energies radiated by astral-matter machines appear to be black in color when perceived with the psychic senses, whereas the energies radiated by human astral souls – including those of Theocrats – appear to be white or bright-colored. This has a physical cause related to the frequency of the radiant astral energies themselves: the former appear absorptive and the latter reflective.
A high percentage of the imaginative novels, movies, and television programs produced in the last twenty years contain hidden messages about the war between the Theocrats and the Invisible College. And popular music today is an even more effective tool for mind control than it was in the Sixties.
As soon as we started this subliminal warfare, the fifth-stage Theocrats began using it too, and both sides have been fighting desperately for control in this area all during the last twenty years.
[Griffith very quickly noticed the magnitude of this warfare when he started doing research for a book on the role of popular music in the War in Heaven. Many of today’s rock songs tell the same story, over and over again. It’s like reading passages from the diary of someone gradually going mad in an old horror novel. Every new rock group starts out with a few normal protest or love songs. Then a group mind controlled by fifth-stage Theocrats, and from that point on, all their songs sound as if the same person wrote them swallows them.
However, this Theocratic subversion is often not complete, and periodically one of the groups still writes a song about the fight to liberate the human race from mind control.]

A number of musicians who are also highly skilled magicians.

From our point of view, the entire mythology is completely false. It is based on a number of false assumptions about spiritual reality that you have already thoroughly debunked in this book. The key fallacy that underlies everything else concerns the so-called “higher self.” It exists, of course, but it’s no more Godlike than the lower self. The higher self is nothing more than the astral soul with its astral mind and psychic powers. Becoming a magician is nothing more than putting the physical mind in conscious contact with the astral mind and using the psychic powers in the astral soul.
The medieval alchemists and cabbalists developed excellent practical techniques for doing this, but their theoretical explanations of how it worked were completely wrong. Griffith: How does the information you just gave relate to my experiences with modern rock music? For example, I sometimes seem to hear messages with my name in them. Is this how people get entrapped into Theocratic electronic mind-control networks? And what exactly are the messages – actual subliminals in the music itself, or telepathic messages that use the music as a focusing device for my own psychic powers?

Invisible College: This form of electronic mind control is extremely powerful, and much more is expressed in electronic signals than an analysis of the surface message indicates. Modern rock music is not just a melody and a lyric with a few specific subliminals added in such a way that they can be easily extracted.
If it were, then computer scientists on Earth could put songs in digital form, separate out the subliminals that had particular effects on people’s minds, and actually write a sort of computer language out of them that could be used for simple kinds of mind control. For this reason, both the Invisible College and the Theocrats deliberately keep the subliminals far too complex to be analyzed and cracked with present Earth computer technology.

Don’t assume that the voices you hear on records speaking your name, or various other word patterns that you think are personal and unique to you, are proof that some living person or some disembodied spirit has the same verbal knowledge that you yourself possess. This simply isn’t true.
The mental programs that human beings use to deal with language involve a lot of what
you could call “computer enhancement of images” and also “high-level computer languages.”
The actual subliminal sounds mixed into recorded music and broadcast on radio and television are more like a computer machine language than either an ordinary spoken Earth language or a high level computer language that resembles such a spoken language. They are not words or even phonemes in English, but patterns of sound that produce certain reactions within the speech-interpretation programs in the listener’s mind.

For example, when you think you hear your name being called, the signal is probably not your name as an Earth person at all, nor your name where you came from, but a descriptive term in machine language that refers to a specific type of person. It’s comparable to sending a narrow-band radio signal on a certain frequency; if anyone has a set tuned to exactly that frequency, he’ll hear a signal. Some of the Theocrats and many spirits in the Invisible College know what kind of people are here doing various jobs. If they want to communicate with such people, they send a group of machine-language symbols that a mind of one exact type will receive, and no other. If you are that type, you will hear your name being called, or will otherwise be aware that someone has a message for you. What you don’t seem to be aware of is that
only you or someone exactly like you can hear the signal if it is specific enough. Some of
these call codes are more specific than others. Some can be heard by nearly all conscious extraterrestrial agents; others by all extraterrestrials, period;
and some by everyone with a certain degree of psychic development. Many of these subliminal messages have the same effect on the human mind, which on one level is computer software, as programming commands sent into an computer. In other words, receipt of a group of machine-language symbols by your mind causes a particular program to start running, if you are in the correct state of consciousness and if your mind
possesses the program in the first place. This is why the voices you hear in the music seem to be trying to recruit you to their side or to scare you off from interfering with
their activities. Do not jump to the conclusion that the senders have conscious knowledge of who you are or what you are doing on the level of Earth-plane activity.
They know that many different people are doing research into electronic mind control, and that among them are undoubtedly some conscious extraterrestrial agents with the correct mental programs to understand messages of the type you are now receiving from us. They also know how to send messages directly to you through music subliminals,
because they know some of the mental programming you have to have to do your job. They are “on your wavelength” or “they know your language.” So, no matter who
they are or which side they are on, they try to get you to join them or to keep you from interfering with them.

Another thing you have to realize is that these messages that you can now receive because you have the right programs loaded into your mind are not new. Many different groups of spirits and living magicians have been sending such messages for years. That hasn’t changed; it is you who have changed. You can now hear and see the messages, whereas a few months or years ago you couldn’t. What you are receiving is quite real, but it isn’t quite what you think it is either. You think that the messages are much more specific than they are. You think that they are aimed at you as a unique individual. [Griffith asks about “Raudive voices,” named for a psychic researcher (Konstantin Raudive) who postulated that disembodied spirits could impress their voices onto magnetic recording tape. He has received a large number of messages of this type during his music research. Does spirits that psychokinetically manipulate the molecules in the tape put them there, or is there another explanation?]

The messages are not on the tapes, but in your mind. Spirits perceive the pattern of background noise going onto the tape and key it to a telepathic message they’re sending into your subconscious. You can consciously retrieve the message when you listen to the tape. The proof is that sometimes more than one person will hear the same message on a particular tape, sometimes not. Also, if you listen to such a tape frequently, you can learn to retrieve the message without it. Both we and the Theocrats use this method of communication frequently, on music tapes as well as tapes containing only noise. Griffith: The scope and effectiveness of the electronic mind-control techniques you have just described give the fifth-stage Theocrats much more power to control people than the religious Theocrats have ever had. However, Western civilization still seems to be evolving towards the goals set by the Invisible College long ago: an increase in individual sovereignty in all aspects of human life, a decrease of bigotry and closed-mindedness, and a higher level of general knowledge and sophistication in both technological and social areas.

I assume that this is why you remain optimistic about the future, but nevertheless, many of the people who commented on Spiritual Revolution [a preliminary edition of War in Heaven] expressed serious doubts about the future of the human race on Earth. They believe that nuclear war, biological warfare, or destruction of the Earth’s biosphere through pollution will prevent an advanced civilization from developing on this planet, no matter what the Invisible College is able to do.


I present here a very brief summary of the state of the Technology War at that time, category by category. Kyle Griffith will provide a current look at this area in the WiH Forum.
1 The Birth Control Pill. The pill, not birth control in general, is important because
the way in which it interferes with the menstrual cycle can enhance women’s ability to gain control of their psychic powers – something the Theocrats always try to suppress.

The effect is related to changes that take place in the somatic soul during early
pregnancy as it prepares itself to bond with a reincarnating astral soul. Birth-control
pills simulate early pregnancy. The AIDS virus was created by Theocrats by using psychokinetic genetic manipulation to alter a relatively harmless African venereal disease virus.

The need to find a vaccine for AIDS through genetic engineering was one of the chief
reasons why such research was sanctioned and financed on a large scale. And genetic research is far more dangerous than atomic research in its potential to produce a wider variety of weapons of mass destruction, more easily and cheaply. The risk of accidental release of such weapons is much higher than the risk of accidental nuclear war.

Right-wing reactionaries in 1988 were conspiring to pressure governments to treat
AIDS with benign neglect and to withhold vaccine from public distribution for as long
as possible after it was discovered. This would allow AIDS to spread very deeply into
the Third World, so that the means of preventing or curing it could eventually be used as a weapon to further First World interests.

This power-brokerage scenario could be used with other biological agents as well.

Griffith: I’ve always felt the same way about the predictions of historical events between the time of Nostradamus and the present. What has impressed me are his visual images of modern technology. Some of his verses contain what seem to be accurate descriptions of airplanes, submarines, missiles, conventional and nuclear bombing, chemical and biological warfare, etc.

Invisible College: Nostradamus had visions of all these things that were quite accurate, but this had nothing to do with prophesy. Physical technology develops along similar lines on many different worlds, and the images he described were taken from the historical records of some advanced civilization. Griffith: It looks to me as if the advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that is
manipulating the evolution of earthly society are divided into two factions with
conflicting goals.
1 the Elohim are here to assist in the birth of new Gods,
and
2 the space people are here to create a new civilization similar their own.

Invisible College: This is completely correct, and it is a difficult political situation. The Elohim have a strong claim here because of the astral technology that their ancestors left on this planet long ago;
but they also want to maintain a good relationship with us, so they will allow us to found an advanced civilization of individual humans on Earth if possible.

There is no emotional animosity between the two factions, and a complex set of rules to determine how the situation is handled. And in one sense, the Earth people themselves will determine the fate of their own world.
Invisible College: If a major nuclear war occurs before Earth has established viable space colonies, no advanced individual civilization will develop here.
And even if such colonies are established, the fate of hundreds of millions of individual souls depends on the course of history from now until the Last Days. If the Earth is still capable of sustaining human life after the Last Days, many more people can be saved than if the new civilization is forced to live in
space.

Griffith: Isn’t there a better way to communicate the information than putting it into a book like this?

Invisible College: Of course, but it is a good first step. Having the information in coherent verbal form in an earthly language makes it easier to communicate it telepathically to large numbers of people. And the more people who read the book and write or talk about the ideas in it, the better.
WAR IN HEAVEN is just one tiny part of our efforts to spread this information.

Werking
The Theocrats are violating natural laws when they refuse to reincarnate. The souls of all living beings are constructed to incarnate and draw energy from the physical body. This is the only natural and efficient way in which the soul can get the vital energy it needs to function and regenerate itself. Although the mechanics of this process are quite complicated, we will explain them in some detail to allow you to understand the rest of the theory.
The soul is actually an astral body, made up of a special form of matter.
This matter is composed of subatomic particles like ordinary matter, but with different properties. Let us call this special form of matter astral matter, and the ordinary form physical matter.
The subatomic particles that compose astral matter have different properties from the particles that compose physical matter.
Physicists on Earth have named and described some of these properties, such as mass, spin, and electrical charge. You also have terms like “charm” in your vocabulary for properties the scientific community apparently understands much less clearly.

The principal difference between astral matter and physical matter is that all astral subatomic particles possess much less mass than equivalent particles of physical matter. The charges and the mass ratios of the particles of astral atoms are about the same as those of physical atoms. In other words, the particles that compose the nucleus of an atom of astral matter have a positive or neutral electrical charge and their mass is greater than that of the negatively charged particles that revolve around the nucleus. However, the astral subatomic particles equivalent to physical protons and neutrons are much less massive than physical electrons.

Since physicists often describe physical electrons as having “negligible mass” compared with physical protons and neutrons, this means that the total mass of astral atoms is extremely small.
Q. How can astral matter exist in the presence of physical matter? Why don’t the tiny astral atoms simply get sucked in by the gravitational attraction of the physical atoms and end up orbiting them the way electrons do?
A. Astral subatomic particles have a different characteristic that determines gravitational attraction. They are attracted by gravity to each other but not to particles of physical matter. In fact, the astral atoms and molecules that make up the soul occupy the same space as the physical matter that makes up the body. Both kinds of matter are mostly empty space between particles anyway, and since there is no gravitational attraction between the two kinds of matter, the molecules simply slip by one another. This also explains people’s inability to see astral matter or detect it with physical laboratory
instruments.

Energy also exists in two different forms, physical energy and astral energy. The photons that make up the two types again have different characteristics. Under most ircumstances, astral photons do not react with physical subatomic particles. Nor do physical photons react with astral particles. However, the exception is important.

You’re saying that light and other electromagnetic energy do not affect astral matter. Does this mean that psychic energy is not in the electromagnetic spectrum at all, but in a different one?
Yes. Advanced civilizations possess a unified field theory that describes the relationship between the two, but we can’t describe it to you right now. What’s important in this discussion is that psychic or astral energy normally works only on astral matter. It does not produce physical or chemical changes in physical matter. The reverse is also true. How does psychokinesis work then, or does it exist at all?

A. It exists, but it’s nothing like what you now think. In fact, your whole concept of the nature of psychic powers is a jumble of oversimplifications and errors. Psychokinesis does not move or change physical matter directly, but can do so by working through the links between physical and astral matter.

These links are the “Secret of Life.”
The difference between living and non-living matter is that living matter is linked to astral matter but non-living matter is not. Complex organic molecules of physical matter can form a chemical bond with similarly constructed molecules of astral matter, and the resulting structure shows the characteristics of life: irritability and the ability to produce.
This process is very complicated, and your knowledge of physics is not adequate to understand all it completely. Here’s an attempt to explain why astral matter can react chemically with physical matter only within living molecules and not within simpler molecules. It has to do with the vibrational frequencies of photons produced when electrons of both physical and astral matter change energy levels within complex
organic molecules. These frequencies are the same allowing physical photons to convert to astral and vice-versa.

This happens only in certain kinds of molecules, not in all. These energy conversions allow a sort of chemical bonding to occur if the two molecules are similar enough.
Q. Does this mean that astral matter – in other words, the soul – plays a part in cell division?

A. Yes, in the whole genetic process: it affects the reduplication of DNA. It also affects many different aspects of cell metabolism. And the breaking of the molecular bonds between physical molecules and astral molecules causes the phenomenon commonly called “death”.

Q. How does this tie in with the idea that the body supplies the energy to nourish the soul?

A. Some of the electromagnetic energy generated chemically by the cell’s metabolic processes is converted into astral energy by the links between the physical and astral molecules. This energy flows into the astral matter that composes the soul, powering its various functions and providing the raw material for regeneration of its astral matter. In other words, some electro-magnetic energy is converted into astral energy, passed into the soul, and converted into astral matter there to perform cellular growth and repairs.
The astral plane is actually higher on an ecological energy chain than the Earth plane, which means it receives less total usable energy.
Plants convert solar energy into chemical energy. When animals eat the plants, they absorb this energy and use most of it in growth, repair of tissues, moving around, and other activities. However, some of it is also converted into astral energy and passed into the soul.
Since each of these energy conversion processes is less than completely efficient, each link in the energy chain has access to less total energy than the one below it.

The impression of the human soul I get from this is that it’s exactly the same size and shape as the body, linked to it cell-by-cell and molecule-by-molecule. This is very different from my previous concept, which was that it is attached to the body at only one point through the traditional “silver cord.” Please explain.

A. Human beings actually have two souls, not one. So do all other animals; but plants have only one. The soul we’ve been talking about so far is a primitive structure, an astral body that is merely an analog of the physical body. It is alive in the sense that it is made up of molecules of living astral matter, but it is not sentient. It has a nervous system but not a mind. The true soul, the one you were just talking about, is a separate structure of astral matter.

Using the term “somatic soul” for the primitive soul linked cell-by-cell to the body and “astral soul” for the other will make it easier to discuss this subject. The astral soul is a body of astral matter linked to the somatic soul’s nervous system by what you call the silver cord. This is structured like a segment of plant root with feeder roots at both ends.
The feeders at one end tap into the somatic soul’s nervous system;
those at the other end tap into the astral soul’s nervous system. Energy flows into the astral soul from the somatic soul and indirectly from the body through this cord. Energy flowing through the silver cord is the astral soul’s only truly efficient source of nourishment.
This makes sense. I take it, then, that the silver cord breaks when the body dies, leaving the astral soul free. Correct. Remember, though, that the astral soul loses its best source of energy when it separates from the body. By contrast, when the body dies, the somatic soul does not also separate and live on independently. It simply decomposes when the body decomposes. Remember, it’s very closely linked to the body with chemical bonds.
Q. I conclude from this that a new somatic soul is created during the embryological development of every new human being.


Correct. In fact, a cell of living physical matter can’t divide unless the astral cell linked to it also divides. Living cells and molecules can exist only in pairs, one physical, and one astral. This is why many complex organic molecules undergo chemical reactions differently in living cells from the way they do in a test tube.
Q. I assume, then, that reincarnation occurs when an existing astral soul attaches itself to the developing somatic soul of a fetus. You’ve also given a reason why the astral soul needs to reincarnate:
to link itself to a source of vital energy and nourishment. Where in the process of embryological development does this occur?
There are two very different reincarnation processes. The commonest occurs even before conception. Sexual activity often attracts a nearby spirit and causes a temporary attachment to a woman’s somatic soul at the genital chakra. (The same attachment can happen to a man, but it generally lasts only a few minutes, because the attachment point in a male’s somatic soul is vestigial, whereas the female’s is fully functional.)

The attachment can last up to about twenty-four hours; and if conception occurs during this time, some of the hormonal secretions that accompany the process cause the woman’s nervous system to send energy to her somatic soul that keeps the attachment intact through the entire pregnancy.

Late in pregnancy, when the somatic soul of the fetus becomes sufficiently developed, another hormonal change causes the mother’s genital chakra to reject the link to the attached soul, which then remains attached only to the fetus.
Q. I think this information might also explain why students of sex magic in both the East and the West have written so much about the relationship between the female menstrual cycle and various psychic and spiritual phenomena. Most of them have noticed that kundalini energies vary significantly in both quantity and nature at various points during the cycle, and that there is also a connection to mediumship and even possession.

A. Yes, this information can help magicians work out better theoretical explanations for the mechanisms of such phenomena. At present, the theories they use to explain their observed data are among the most complex and mystical hypotheses you’ll find in occult books.
This same concept should also be useful to people trying to explain some of the phenomena described by Whitley Strieber in Communion: women experiencing phantom pregnancies after “UFO abduction” experiences, etc.
To get back to our discussion of the mechanisms of reincarnation, the primitive, involuntary form of reincarnation occurs in many of the more intelligent types of “lower animals,” and it happens spontaneously to any human soul at a relatively low state of psychic development who happens to come close to a couple having intercourse. Although it allows the soul to survive death, it has serious disadvantages for both
mother and child.
All during her pregnancy the mother suffers serious psychic energy imbalances, which can cause her both mental and physical illness.
These are usually more uncomfortable than they are dangerous, but the damage suffered by the attached astral soul is often much more serious. Signals intended for the mother’s astral soul are also transmitted into the attached soul, and they usually scramble the contents of its astral mind quite badly. For this reason, few people who reincarnate by this method show the typical characteristics of the twice born: past-life memories, precocious intellectual or psychic development, etc.
Q. What happens if an existing astral soul doesn’t link to the mother’s somatic soul? Does this cause an early miscarriage? Recent medical evidence shows that about half of all pregnancies terminate spontaneously within a week or two after conception; since an early miscarriage of this type closely resembles normal menstruation, the woman isn’t aware she was ever pregnant.

A. This has nothing to do with reincarnation, but has purely physical causes. Every human being has to have an astral soul. If an existing astral soul is not already attached to the mother, the fetus starts generating an astral soul of its own late in pregnancy. At this point, two things can happen. Either a late reincarnation can occur, or the baby is born with a completely new soul, spontaneously created during its embryonic development.

The people the Hindus call “twice born” are those in which an astral soul at a reasonably high state of development has incarnated shortly before or after birth, a process that keeps the infant from developing its own new soul. On the average, people with twice-born souls have a head start over those with new souls or souls received through early reincarnation. The astral soul of a twice-born person transfers memories into the physical mind during infancy and childhood that “teach it how to learn.” This is equivalent to raising the person’s effective intelligence and creativity.
Energy to nourish the soul flows from the body through the somatic soul to the astral soul, but there are smaller energy flows both ways that convey information.
The astral souls of the twice born give them a head start by feeding valuable information into the physical mind.
Why do the Theocrats refuse to reincarnate?
Remember Satan in Milton’s “Paradise Lost” saying, “Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven”? The Theocrats are spirits with great knowledge and psychic power. They are a sort of ruling class on the astral plane, and they don’t want to give up their power and privilege by reincarnating. Highly advanced souls who aren’t Theocrats reincarnate and take the chance that their soul can properly educate their new mind, and that their next reincarnation will be a pleasant and valuable one.
But it still involves taking a chance: the body might have hidden flaws that they don’t detect before incarnating, or the child’s earthly environment can take an unforeseen turn for the worse.
Also, the late reincarnation process itself is as traumatic as the physical ordeals of giving birth or being born. This trauma erases many of the memories stored in the astral soul and damages the programming that governs the astral soul’s functioning.
The Theocrats are too selfish and egotistical to take these chances, even though the alternative is extremely immoral.

Another reason why Theocrats don’t want to reincarnate is that human beings have two minds as well as two souls. One mind is in the physical body’s brain, the other is in the astral soul, and both have separate consciousness. Normally, the astral mind is conscious while the body sleeps and unconscious while the physical mind is awake.
The two are conscious simultaneously only during certain states of altered consciousness. This “time-sharing” is humiliating for the astral mind’s ego, which considers itself superior to that of the physical mind.
Theocrats want total consciousness for their astral ego, in addition to power over other spirits.
This brings us to one of the most important things we have to tell you in this whole series of communications.
The nourishment that disembodied spirits receive from living people as radiant psychic energy is not enough to sustain them by itself. This is why all non-Theocratic spirits reincarnate within ten to fifty years after physical death: if they don’t, the astral soul starts to degenerate because of a sort of malnutrition. The astral matter that makes up its tissues can’t regenerate itself properly and reverse the effects of entropy. So the choice is reincarnation or illness, insanity, and death.

The Theocrats have found an alternative to this, but it is an evil one:
cannibalism. They use their telepathic powers to hypnotize spirits less highly developed than they are; then they attach the silver cord to them just as if the other astral soul were the somatic soul of an infant.
They can draw out enough energy this way to sustain themselves on the astral plane indefinitely, but the process destroys the other spirit.
Q. This is very frightening. Can they do this to just any other spirit, and can they do it to an astral soul incarnated in a body?
Fortunately, no to both. If they could, neither you nor we would be here talking about it. The Theocrats would have eaten up all of us just to get rid of us. They claim to be gods, but their powers are actually quite limited. Some of them are both more knowledgeable and psychically more powerful than most of the rest of us, living and disembodied, but they are far from omnipotent.
They can’t damage an embodied soul or override its conscious will, and they usually can’t capture and devour disembodied souls who resist them, except for the weak and untrained ones that mediums call “lost souls.” And even the majority of lost souls are capable of random psychokinetic bursts that allow them to flee the Theocrats when threatened.

The Theocrats obtain victims by posing as gods and persuading religious believers to enter their bands by promising them “eternal bliss in Heaven.”


Theocratic Bands
Please tell me more about the Theocrats and how they operate. For example, who were they when they lived on Earth?

A. Many notorious tyrants, conquerors, evil religious leaders, black magicians, and criminals have become Theocrats after death, but so have some people whom history calls saints or benign geniuses.
Power corrupts, and the prospect of achieving immortality corrupts even more.
Many people with highly developed souls whose earthly lives were lived quite ethically chose to become Theocrats after death.
This has been especially true of people who were religiously devout, then found out the horrible truth about their gods after death. If they were too powerful for the Theocrats to enslave and devour, some became members of the Invisible College and fought Theocracy; but others became Theocrats themselves. The temptation is very strong, because the Theocrats as a class have ruled both the Earth and its astral plane throughout most of human history. For example, most of the medieval Popes and other religious leaders notorious for being cynical and power-hungry are now Theocrats. So are many famous occult leaders, from Cagliostro down to Aliester Crowley.
Q. I’ve learned a lot from Crowley’s writings and from members of occult
organizations he founded or influenced, but I’ve always also felt a deep emotional revulsion for him.
A. While he was alive, Crowley was very similar to a double agent in espionage. Sometimes he helped us in our battles against the Theocrats, but at other times he worked for them. Of course, we were always aware that no matter which side he said he was on, his only real loyalties were to himself. This kind of egotism is a typical Theocratic personality-type, and proves that Crowley had been a Theocratic spirit between lives many times before.
Right now, he’s working with various Theocrats of an occultist persuasion, trying to turn some of the occult groups he founded into cults based on his worship. He talked frequently about doing this during his life, and now he’s in a position to put it into practice.
Q. This makes the War in Heaven sound more like the Allies against the Nazis than the forces of good against the forces of evil.
A. It’s all just politics. Both sides are working in their own interests. The important thing is that the self-interest of the Invisible College and of living people is the same. We acknowledge that we are part of the same human race as you. become literally superhuman.
Q. Are you implying, then, that the time-honored goal of so many occultists – that of becoming or merging with a god-like being – is evil?
That trying to do this turns people into Theocratic spirits who literally eat souls?

A. This question doesn’t have a yes-or-no answer, and before we can answer it all, we’ll have to give you a lot more background information.
The question isn’t really a matter of morality so much as one of dealing realistically with natural law. For example, it is a serious violation of natural law for a disembodied astral soul to take on large amounts of energy by draining it from another spirit, because there is no template for determining how the energy is assimilated, as there is when the astral soul is attached to a body. In the latter case, the somatic soul acts as such a template. When the somatic soul transmits energy through the silver cord to nourish the astral soul, the pulses of energy are arranged in patterns that keep the growth of astral tissues in proper balance.
By contrast, when Theocrats absorb energy from other spirits, there is no such template, so the growth-pattern is random and may put the functioning of the astral soul out of balance. Because imbalances in the astral nervous system can cause irrational thinking and behavior, most of the Theocrats are insane. And the bigger and older they are, very often the crazier they are. Many Theocrats do irrational and self-destructive things, and most of them eventually become so insane that other Theocrats destroy them.
Q. This means the Theocrats aren’t really immortal?
A. Most of them aren’t. They have the potential to be, but only by properly controlling the energies they assimilate, and few of them have the knowledge to do this. There are some very large, old, and stable Theocrats on the astral plane who do seem to have this knowledge, but they don’t cause much trouble. They feed themselves by stealing spirits from other Theocrats and don’t work directly with living people, so we don’t worry about them much.
It’s the younger Theocrats that cause the most trouble, both for the Invisible College and for living people.
Q. Why do the Theocrats maintain bands of spirit followers, and what are these bands like?
A. The Theocrats enslave other spirits to provide psychic energy, as slaves or employees on Earth provide physical labor. Individual Theocratic bands can contain from a couple of dozen spirits to several thousand, with the average in the low hundreds. The paintings and poems that describe a Heaven containing millions of souls are inaccurate.
The daily activities of a Fundamentalist Theocratic band organized as Heaven are similar to a church service as such sects hold them on Earth, except that they go on perpetually. The Theocrat in charge poses as the Lord God Jehovah, and subordinate Theocrats pose as Christ, various Angels and Apostles, and so forth. God quotes the same Biblical passages and preaches the same sermons as preachers in the same sect do on Earth, and the congregation joins in singing the same hymns.
Dead Fundamentalists in Heaven find out they even still have to confess their sins and receive divine forgiveness, because they are still capable of thinking “rebellious and impure thoughts.” Of course, since they are in constant, direct telepathic contact with their God, the process is simple and automatic. Christians in Heaven are kept in a perpetual state of religious ecstasy, which activates their psychic powers under the control of their God.
The Theocratic leaders of the band then channel this collective psychic energy to perform whatever functions they consider necessary. Most of the activities have to do with the survival of the band, and especially of the Theocratic dictator posing as God. The band recruits new members from among the recently deceased, steals souls from other bands, fights to keep spirits like us from liberating members of the band, and so on.
Q. I still don’t have a clear picture of how the Theocratic bands on the astral plane relate to living people.
A. Each Theocratic band has to have a working relationship with a group of living eople, often a religious congregation. Occult and political groups are also used; and now more and more Theocratic bands are controlling groups of people whose common interest is popular music, sports, or something else centered around the electronic media.
Traditionally, the majority of Theocrats hung around places of worship, but now you can find them almost any place that crowds gather.
Q. Please clarify this. You talk about spirits being on the astral plane as if it’s a place, but you also say, “hang around places of worship.” Just where is the astral plane? Is it on Earth, in another dimension, or what? A. The astral plane is a condition, not a place. A spirit, meaning an astral soul, on the astral plane is in the condition of not being bound to physical matter through the silver cord. The Earth plane is the surface of the planet Earth as you perceive it with your physical senses. The astral plane is that same place as we perceive it with our psychic senses.
We and the Theocrats and all spirits live on the same world you do.
Spirits are present around you all the time, and if you enter the correct state of consciousness to put your psychic senses under conscious control, you can perceive them directly.

But point-of-death experiences are accidents, and there isn’t much that the Theocrats can do to prevent them.

Q. When people see the spirits of dead relatives waiting to greet then during point-of-death experiences, are these fakes like the Theocrats pretending to be Jesus, or are the other spirits really their relatives?

A. Quite often, they really are. Theocratic bands often contain many members of one family. There are several reasons for this.
Frequently, whole families belong to the same church congregation and are recruited, after death, into the Theocratic band that controls it. Even if not, ties of family affection are also used to recruit spirits after death.
One of the most important activities of every Theocratic band is obtaining new members to replace the souls the band devours.
Maintaining a relationship with an organized group of living people also allows the Theocrats to maintain a social and political system here on Earth working in their interest. Theocratic bands maintain their relationships with the living by using religious mind control, which should be described in a separate chapter.
Let us end this chapter by pointing out that every single one of the ideas at the core of traditional deistic doctrine is a lie.
“Only God (under various specific names in different sects) is good: people are basically evil and are incapable of improving themselves morally by their own efforts.” This is a lie.
“Only God is naturally immortal, but people can gain immortality by doing proper service for the Deity.” This is a lie.
“Human beings can receive forgiveness for their sins, and divine strength to prop up their various weaknesses, by ‘Letting God into their hearts’ i.e., by creating a powerful psychic bond between themselves and the deity.” This is also a lie.

Q. From what I’ve learned so far, the biggest lie of all is that the “gods” worshiped by organized religions are “archetypes of virtue.” We humans are bad enough, but the Theocrats are obviously many times worse than the worst of us. And it’s not Satan who’s the real “Father of Lies.” It’s God.
The key to the whole religious mind-control technique is putting people into a state of consciousness best called the “religious trance.” It is essentially a mild hypnotic trance in which the conscious will is awake but passive, as opposed to deep trances, in which it is completely inactive. People in a religious trance are completely aware of what is going on around them, and are recording these events in their memories exactly as they would in a normal waking state.

They are also capable of thinking and acting voluntarily, but can only do so within certain very definite limits without breaking out of the religious trance and assuming normal consciousness.
Q. It’s fairly common to describe someone who’s concentrating intently on reading, listening to music, or watching television, as “hypnotized.” You’re saying that this is literally true?
A. Yes, but remember, it’s a rather light trance. If the material being presented begins to contradict the person’s existing opinions or knowledge, identification breaks down. He or she assumes full normal consciousness and thinks, “I don’t agree with this,” or “I
don’t understand this,” or “This is wrong.” However, identification with sensory input can make people accept things they would reject if they were fully conscious, as long as the input isn’t controversial or unfamiliar enough to break their concentration. Once the conscious will becomes passive, the flow of character, assuming a level closer to that during sleep than that during normal wakefulness. In a person fully trained to enter the religious trance, electrical activity in the physical nervous system becomes stable at exactly the right level to allow an equal flow of energy into and out of the astral soul. This allows the astral will to awaken partially, and creates a direct, two-way link between the physical mind and the astral mind.
As long as the religious trance lasts, information can pass reasonably freely between the physical mind and the astral mind and vice versa.
Also, the physical mind can receive impressions from the psychic senses of the astral soul more or less directly.

Q. How does this compare to the trance state I’m in to receive this communication? Is it the same?

A. No. You are in a “psychic trance,” which is not the same as a “religious trance.” It’s a much less passive state of consciousness, and involves much larger flows of energy into and out of the astral soul. Both the physical will and the astral will act in concert control the psychic trance. The religious trance is controlled by outside sensory input into both the physical and astral minds. The psychic trance is an active state of consciousness that leaves you free to ask questions and make comments using your full creative powers. The religious trance is a passive state used to control and brainwash people.

The purpose of a psychic trance is for an individual to take conscious control of his/her psychic powers and use them to receive messages by telepathy or perform some other psychic working. What happens during the religious trance is not quite the same. Once people are completely in the religious trance, they are able to receive telepathic messages from everyone around them and from any disembodied spirits present;
but the process is not nearly as conscious as what you’re doing right now in a psychic trance.The actual religious mind-control process, the technique that provides telepathic emotional reinforcement to help program people’s minds, is a sort of “psychic chain-reaction” that occurs while a group of people are in the religious trance together. In other words, the telepathic messages sent out by every member of the congregation influence the emotions and thinking of every other member, like a box of matches catching fire or an atomic chain reaction.

This process creates a “religious group mind”: the telepathic transmissions of the entire congregation mutually reinforce one another until everyone present is thinking and feeling the same thing very, very strongly. People in such a state can feel extremely strong emotions, as strong as those that accompany the most powerful physical sensations such as sexual orgasm or extreme pain. Within certain limitations, this is an extremely powerful method for controlling people’s motivations and future behavior. One of its worst features is that the people being controlled enjoy it more than anything else in life. You might call it the ultimate “high.” And it’s more addictive than any chemical drug. Q. The religious mind-control process resembles some of the direct electronic mind control described in anti-utopian fiction. George 0rwell exaggerated when he thought the state described in his novel 1984 would arise out of modern Democracy and Socialism, but he missed something much more important. His totalitarian state with its
mind-control has always existed. It’s as close as your local Fundamentalist church.

A. That’s one of the most important things we’re trying to tell you. People have always been “property” and “cattle” just as Charles Fort speculated, but it’s not on the physical level. What has been enslaved is the mind during life and the soul after death.
This is what Lovecraft was really hinting at in his Cthulhu mythos, isn’t it? And it also explains Shaver’s Deros and hundreds of other references in fiction and serious speculation. Very few of the people who wrote these references knew much about Theocracy as we’re describing it here. All that really happened is that we were able to transmit a few words or some visual images to them telepathically.
Sometimes these were received in conscious “flashes” of vision or inspiration; but more often they sank directly into the subconscious, and were later called up and considered original creations of the imagination.
Q. One example that comes to mind is the material about the Devil eating souls in The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. He must have picked up a glimpse of the truth about Theocracy, but he was so deeply brainwashed that it didn’t liberate him. His conscious intellect just twisted the information around to support his Christian belief system.The last thing the Theocrats want is for religious believers to stop sinning. That is why they made sexual pleasure a sin, and why Christianity and most other organized religions teach the obvious fallacy that women are inferior to men.
Q. In other words, when the Theocrats made up religious doctrine, they included deliberate lies in it so that people would never be able to be completely virtuous.
A. No. It’s worse than that. Fallible human beings can never be completely virtuous in the sense of being able to obey the absolute letter of any rigid ethical code. However, falling short of perfection in obeying most ethical codes provides reinforcement for modifying behavior in positive ways: the more people are punished for disobedience or rewarded for obedience, the closer their average behavior gets to the code.

The “better” they behave, the more positive reinforcement and less negative reinforcement they get. Even though they never reach perfection, they tend to feel the code is constructive because progress is rewarded and retrogression is punished.
Q. This is easy enough to understand, but how does it apply to a moral code that says sex is sinful?
A. That’s the point we’re trying to make. This kind of logic doesn’t apply to such a code. Sexual desire originates on the biochemical level and cannot be extinguished by manipulating the programming of the mind. People can be conditioned to hate and fear In this context, we are defining “mind” as “The information stored in the brain, plus the software for retrieving and processing that information.”
Do you now understand the full magnitude of the problem that a completely false item of religious doctrine causes people? It’s an inherently frustrating situation. The subjugation of women makes life much less pleasant for both genders. It turns women into slaves, forever unable to live full lives. And it does just as much harm to men when it turns them into oppressors and exploiters.

This creates a no-win situation, because Fundamentalists still receive negative reinforcement even if they obey their moral code perfectly. For example, trying to live up to Christian ideals of chastity is always going to create guilt feelings and internal conflict, because believing that sexual feelings are wrong does not extinguish them, even though it might repress or sublimate them.

And living within a sexist family structure always creates interpersonal conflicts.
Q. I see now why you say this process is similar to drug addiction. The Fundamentalist moral code contains elements that can’t help making people feel frustrated or guilty, which creates an artificial need for “divine forgiveness of sins.”
A. There’s a significant difference between a humanistic ethical code and the moral codes of Theocratic religion. The former are designed to meet people’s needs, the latter to meet the Theocrats’ needs.
Even though most humanistic ethical codes are too idealistic to follow rigidly, “human nature” itself regulates reinforcement in response to them in ways that prevent excessive guilt and frustration.
In other words, committing murder or assault is severely punished, cursing and screaming at people less so, but the social environment of most societies does not punish people for merely feeling anger but not expressing it in word or deed. However, the negative emotions themselves are a form of negative reinforcement. Notice that this process is self-limiting: serious offenses receive severe punishment, whereas minor ones receive light punishment. This is not true of violations of religious morality based on absolutes.

You and your readers should also be constantly aware that the Theocrats do not confine their activities to religion and occultism, but corrupt and control human beings through all activities that produce certain states of altered consciousness. For example, when people use the electronic media for passive
recreational purposes – listening to popular music over the radio or on recordings, watching televised sports events and game shows, and playing the simpler computer games – they often enter a trance
state that renders them vulnerable to telepathic mind-control by Theocratic spirits.

We must first give more background information about the nature of spiritual beings and psychic powers in general. Chapter 13:


Soul, Mind, and Consciousness
Q. Even though you’ve explained how the Theocrats indoctrinate people who attend religious services by conditioning them with a mixture of sensory and telepathic reinforcement, I still find it hard to understand this in terms of what I know about psychology. For example, how can the whole human race be so brainwashed that they don’t even speculate consciously about certain aspects of spiritual reality? The idea that evil spirits might pose as gods and exploit people through organized religion is an obvious one, yet almost no one ever talks or writes about it. The whole subject is literally “unthinkable.”
Also, if religious mind control puts people into conflict with their own human nature, as happens when they are taught that sexual feelings are morally wrong, why doesn’t this negative reinforcement cancel out the positive reinforcement of religious ecstasy? And even more important, most Americans right now aren’t Fundamentalists.
The majority don’t even go to churches regularly at all; and many of those who do, go to liberal churches that don’t practice religious mind control as you describe it.

Since this is so, why aren’t all the facts about Theocracy and religious mind control common knowledge?
A. The answer to all these questions is the same: the Theocrats simply know a lot more about psychology than people do. An electronic computer analogy applies here. People on Earth right now are like the users of a computer system: they can in-put and retrieve data, and they can run the existing programs to process the data in set ways.
Many of them have enough programming skills to modify some of the programs slightly, but they don’t understand the basic design of the software very well. On the other hand, the Theocrats not only understand the software far more completely, but also have much easier access to the special “command mode” used to modify it. This command mode is the telepathic chain-reaction used in religious mind control.

Of course trained human psychics also have access to it, and so do spirits in the Invisible College; but it is still extremely difficult to free people from Theocratic control. The mind of the average person on Earth right now is run by software designed by the Theocrats to keep people from consciously finding out they exist.

And there’s no use just telling people the truth: they simply can’t understand or believe it, because the mental programs they use for understanding and believing things were designed by the Theocrats.
Q. Almost all religious and occult literature, and the majority of modern speculative writing that comes close to discussing Theocracy, assume that “gods,” “demons,” etc., have the power to kill humans who discover “forbidden knowledge,” or at the very least, to over-ride the conscious will and keep humans from remembering such things or pursuing such lines of enquiry further. What are the facts on this?
Especially, are the Theocrats aware of telepathic conversations like this one, and what can they do about it?
A. Obviously, the Theocrats don’t have the psychic power to kill people or analyze their conscious minds, or you wouldn’t have survived to write this. They operate through the subconscious, and they keep people from finding out about them by making it difficult to understand certain kinds of spiritual information or draw rational conclusions from it.

An explanation of how they do this is quite complex. Like the answers to your first set of questions, it depends on a more complete knowledge of the nature of the mind and the soul than you now have, and this is going to be difficult to explain. Keep in mind, throughout what follows, that much of the terminology from psychology and computer science is going to be misused. We have to use the words in your vocabulary that are closest to the meanings we need to convey, but they aren’t always too close.The first thing we need to clarify is the comparison between the human brain and a computer, and between the mind and the software and data in a computer. The only similarity between the human brain and present electronic computers on Earth is that both store and process data. The methods for doing so are quite different. This is where most of the books about biocomputers and psycho-cybernetics go wrong. They take the analogy between the brain and the computer, and between the mind and computer software, much too literally.
The best example is that the electronic computer deals in absolute or “hard” values, whereas the brain deals in comparative or “soft” values. If you create a new file in a computer and enter data into it, the information stays there exactly as entered, and you can retrieve it in its complete original form just by entering the correct access code. If you want to delete something, you can “kill” it instantly and completely by using the correct commands. Everything you know about the human memory and learning process makes it obvious the human mind doesn’t work this way.
Memory storage and retrieval in the human mind is a cumulative rather than an absolute process. If a person’s senses receive a particular set of data only once, fewer of the individual details are recorded in memory than if it is received repeatedly. Also, information may be automatically forgotten if not periodically retrieved, a phenomenon that behaviorists call extinction. These two processes are almost impossible to analyze using a computer analogy.
The electronic computer is an artificial construction, designed to do exactly what the human operator tells it to do. It’s also basically binary: a circuit is either open or closed, giving a series of “yes” and “no” answers. Computer software is designed exactly the same way, to match the hardware. The internal data-processing functions of the computer can be very complex, but this complexity is always built up out of these simple binary building blocks.
Neither the brain nor the mind works this way.
Q. Doesn’t the biological principle of “irritability” put a binary base under the behavior of living organisms? For example, some microorganisms show positive or negative phototropism: they approach a source of light, or they move away from it.
A. This analogy doesn’t hold up very well, because even microorganisms often show much more complex behavior than this. Biological behavior is based not on simple “yes” and “no,” but on increasing or decreasing orders of probability that an organism will respond in a given way to a given stimulus. The probability that an organism will show a given response is determined by the quantity and quality of reinforcement it receives for performing that response.

The behavior of the computer is based on “either A or B.” The behavior of the biological organism is based on “degrees of A or B” with the quantitative values of the probabilities being determined by environmental reinforcement of many different kinds

Subconscious
The computer model of the mind is still useful, though, because it’s the only way even to begin to discuss the subject in the English language right now, poorly as the available terminology fits the realities. For example, it is much easier to understand the concept of the “subconscious” if you think of the mind as the total data and programs stored in an electronic computer, with many different kinds of files, each kind having different access codes.

In other words, what people call “normal consciousness” is like a computer menu, which gives access to certain files and allows them to perform certain operations. Various “altered” states of consciousness give access to entirely different menus. Since the Theocrats have some degree of direct access to the “control mode” for modifying these programs in both the physical and astral mind, they have redesigned many of them to serve their selfish purposes for exploiting human beings both on Earth and after death.
mind control is practiced in many different places besides religious services. The Theocrats often practice it on the crowds:
1 attending sporting events
2 in gambling casinos
3 at political rallies
4 during musical concerts of many types
5 in a number of other places.
Whenever many people enter an intense emotional state at the same time and have their collective attention focused on a common objective, Theocratic spirits can use subconscious telepathic manipulation to put them into a religious trance and reprogram their minds with religious mind control. The important thing is to get as many of the facts as possible out into the open and let people decide for themselves. And it’s finally beginning to happen. References to the truth about Theocracy are beginning to appear in the writings of hundreds of different authors. But the information is still mostly just isolated fragments, and it’s also obvious that most of the people who write them down don’t really know what they are, or even that they’re very important.
Even though most of the individual facts that make up the model of spiritual reality being presented in this book are already available to the public, very few people are capable of assembling them into a coherent theory, as you are doing here. This is because the mental programs they use to draw conclusions from information on spiritual subjects were deliberately designed by the Theocrats to be illogical and irrational. (designed environment).
Q. I’ve wondered about this for a long time, because empirical thinking appears to be the natural way for the mind to operate if you assume that the functioning of the thought-process is determined by positive and negative reinforcement.
A. Correct. As a general rule, assuming that the truth is true will bring positive reinforcement; assuming that it is false, or that something other than the truth is true, will bring negative reinforcement.
There are exceptions to this rule, but it does operate with reasonable consistency, enough to program people with roughly empirical methods of thinking.
This is what most people mean by “common sense”: drawing conclusions from the available observed information, and being willing to modify those conclusions if they are contradicted by further information when put into practice.

Of course, this can get extremely complicated, especially when one is dealing with other people. Since the individual usually has rather incomplete information on a given subject, everyone makes a lot of mistakes. Also, people all tend to be conservative in making decisions:
it’s easier to keep on doing something the way you’ve done it before than it is to change just because the circumstances indicate it might be a good idea.
Both of these exceptions are important, but you should realize they are also self-limiting. The more information you receive that contradicts your present conclusion, the more likely you are to change it.
Also, your basic conservatism or inertia about changing opinions tends to give way when circumstances put enough pressure on you. When you start receiving significant negative reinforcement for behaving in a given way, it gradually becomes obvious that you should find an alternative.
This is the way the mind operates in decision-making most of the time, especially in dealing with the physical world. But this kind of natural empirical reasoning is used much less often than one might expect in dealing with other people, and hardly at all in dealing with psychic and spiritual matters. The Theocrats are responsible for this.

The key to Theocratic power is the nature of what the behaviorists call reinforcement. As materialists, they think of it as something concrete;
but it also has a subjective component, and the Theocrats are able to make use of this fact to manipulate the kind of reinforcement that people receive in response to their behavior.
Q. By “a subjective component in reinforcement,” do you mean that a concept like “pain” or “pleasure” is subjective in the sense of being subject to interpretation by the person receiving the sensory impulses?
A. No. That part of it is objective: the neural impulses we call pain are not the same as the ones we call pleasure; they have different electrical characteristics and travel over different circuits within the nervous system.
Yes, that’s verified by what I know of scientific conclusions on the subject. Where, then, is the “subjective component”?
A. The best name for it in English is “the emotional reaction to sensory stimulus.” As sensory stimuli are received by the mind of a person in a normal state of consciousness, they cause the retrieval of ideas and emotions from memory. This component is subjective because it comes out of memory storage rather than from the outside environment, and in many cases it has more effect on decision-making than the
sensory input alone.
Let’s try a specific example. Suppose a racially prejudiced white man takes a job where many of his co-workers are blacks. Initially, he tends to interpret everything they say and do in ways that reinforce his existing prejudice: if they are confident and assertive, they are acting “above their station in life.” If they’re friendly, they’re being presumptuous and impertinent. If they sense his prejudice and keep their distance from him or act hostile, this is proof that people of different races are not meant to work together. And so on. His experience should be teaching him that, on the average, black people are no different from white people; but his own subjective reactions to sensory intake tend to prevent him from learning.
The behaviorist literature describes these kinds of reactions, of course, because they are very common, but the psychologists don’t even speculate that a deliberate conspiracy is responsible for those elements of human behavior that are irrational or self-destructive.

Instead, they take a Darwinian approach.
For example, in the case cited above, they’d say that the prejudiced man learned his prejudice in an environment where he had little personal contact with black people: he received positive reinforcement from the prejudiced whites around him for showing negative emotional reactions when blacks were mentioned, so he became prejudiced. When he enters an environment where he comes in contact with black people, these prejudices continue to function until they are extinguished.
This is a process very similar to random mutation and natural selection.
This process does account for a lot of human behavior. However, mental programming from Theocratic spirits has to be added into this equation. The Theocrats don’t want people to learn from experience or adjust to new situations in their environment, so they encourage emotionalism over rationality. When people make decisions rationally, they are harder for the Theocrats to control.
Religious mind control is a delicate process, because the religious trance is a rather shallow one. If people in a religious trance perform rituals that are unfamiliar, or hear preaching that seriously contradicts their existing beliefs, they return to a normal state of consciousness.
Effective religious mind control can be practiced during rituals only when those rituals remain relatively stable.
This is also one of the principal reasons why Theocratic religion is socially and politically conservative or reactionary.
Q. I still don’t see how the Theocrats can program the minds of the entire human race so thoroughly that the truth about Theocracy has never become common knowledge.
A. A few people throughout history have, in fact, learned various elements of the truth about Theocracy and written them down in religious and occult literature. However, these elements were always fragmentary; and more important, neither the people who found them nor the rest of the human race were capable of fully understanding them.
Especially, no one was able to design experiments to discover further elements of this knowledge and work towards a unified theory to explain the whole thing.Q. Why should the entire human race find it so hard to make the same breakthrough that I’m making, which enables me to discover and accept this kind of information? I understand, at least partially, how religious mind control works on believers, but why should the minds of everyone else be similarly affected?
A. This comes back to the basic behaviorist theory that human personality is conditioned into people by their physical environment – this includes the mental programs that they use to evaluate data and decide what is true and what is false. Even if you leave direct telepathic programming during religious mind control out of the picture, people still receive their programming from both their physical and social environments.
Reptilian brain dominating our live an dthe mamale brain which has to develop at the backstage.
Programming from the physical environment usually favors empirical thinking, but that from the social environment favors acceptance of doctrine on faith.
A large part of the customs and beliefs and instinctive emotional reactions that make up this social environment were created by Theocratic religion. The further back you go into human history, the greater the percentage of people who were devout believers in Theocratic religion and were subjected to religious mind control to a significant degree throughout their lives.
Q. This definitely appears to be true when we look at Western history over the last thousand years, but I can see gaps further back.
For example, it doesn’t seem as if either the Romans or the Greeks were very devout during important periods of their civilizations.
A. On the contrary-the vast majority of the population in both civilizations were devout believers in Pagan religions that practiced effective religious mind control. However, there were periodic weakenings of religious belief among certain segments of the population, which allowed important occult, philosophical, political, and scientific works to be written, works based on some degree of empirical thinking. Remember, the Greek and Roman philosophers were just a tiny elitist group of intellectuals. The majority viewpoint then was not that of Socrates, but that of the people who condemned him to death.

The hold of Theocratic religion on most of Earth’s living population did not begin to weaken until the Modern Era, from about the 1300’s down to the present. And even today, the greater part of the population is still subject to religious mind control.
Modern civilization does program people with personality structures that resist religious mind control, but the Theocrats have been able to counter our efforts along these lines by resorting to electronic mind control.
Q. My research into secret societies and the forces manipulating human civilization has given me the impression that the Invisible College also makes use of both religious and electronic mind control.

Chapter 14:
Electronic Mind Control
A. Electronic mind control works on two different levels, just as religious mind control does.
We described in some detail in Chapter Twelve how religious services put people into an altered state of consciousness similar to a light hypnotic trance, and how the thinking and behavior of people in such a religious trance can be influenced by what they experience
through the physical senses during the service. In other words, they often learn to believe and act on the preacher’s words as people, learn to react to post-hypnotic suggestions during regular hypnosis.
Electronic mind control does exactly the same thing, and often to an even greater degree. It is also even more addictive than religious mind control. Like religious mind control, electronic mind control works on two different levels, one physical and one psychic

We will next discuss the physical level, which can be directly observed with the physical senses and analyzed with the conscious intellect.
There are many, many books in existence that describe this process, including detailed instructions for spotting subliminals by analyzing movies or TV shows in extreme slow-motion, along with explanations by psychologists for determining what specific effects the subliminal messages will have on the viewer. Similar information has also been
published describing how sensory mind-control is performed through popular music, radio talk shows, and other auditory media, though this subject has not been treated as extensively as mind-control through the visual media.

Electronic or media mind-control has a psychic component just as religious mind control does, but this employs completely different mechanisms, and your readers should be careful not to get confused reading the two sets of technical details in one book. They
don’t contradict one another, but they might seem to if not completely understood.
Everything we said in Chapter Twelve about religious mind-control is based on the postulate that psychic phenomena are broadcast-propagation phenomena like light or radio waves, and that they obey the inverse-square law.
In other words, the strength of a telepathic signal varies inversely with the square of the distance between transmitter and receiver, so psychic workings function most efficiently when the people or spirits involved are spatially close to one another. This is one reason why we continually stress the fact that the astral plane is a condition, not a place, and that
spirits are present in the same space that living people occupy.
However, there is a second, non-broadcast system for transmitting and receiving psychic energies between human souls, which we haven’t mentioned yet. Do you remember the old Greek Myth about the “Threads of Destiny” woven by the goddesses called the Fates?
These threads actually exist, but they aren’t woven by superhuman beings.
They are “transmission lines” of astral matter that connect one soul to another, and they allow telepathic communications over greater distances and with greater power than can be accomplished by ordinary “broadcast” telepathy.
These threads are created spontaneously when astral souls come into contact with one another while generating large amounts of psychic energy. Whenever the astral mind is in the correct state of consciousness, generating these threads is just as natural and
automatic as the process that spiders use to leave a silk strand behind them when they travel.
Some of the more ambitious TV evangelists have also directly linked large numbers of ordinary members of Theocratic congregations – and hundreds of thousands of new converts as well – into their electronic mind control networks by periodically holding huge, live revival meetings.
(They are often held in major sports stadiums, which, as we will see in a moment, are especially appropriate.)
This is also why several of the major evangelists have started colleges, and why one TV ministry even built its own imitation of Disneyland.
Q. Sometimes the little details are more biting than the big, mind-boggling horror stories. Think of it: a theme park where families can get enslaved to both electronic and religious mind-control while they take their vacation!
People don’t have to be watching a sermon or listening to a hymn to receive subconscious telepathic messages from the very same spirits who control fundamentalist religion; they only have to be in the correct state of altered consciousness (which TV and radio produces automatically in all members of the audience who haven’t learned specific techniques for preventing it), and they have to have the transmission lines of astral matter implanted in the right part of their soul, linking them into the network.Q. In other words, the football widow’s husband absorbs just as much Theocratic media mind-control from his weekend glued to the tube as does the Fundamentalist who watches the same amount of religious programming?

A. Yes. Live sports events and casino gambling serve the same function in this network as church services and revival meetings do in the electronic religious mind control networks. Compulsive gambling, especially on sports events through an enormous (and mostly illegal) electronic bookmaking network, plays the same part as does the cycle
of sin/guilt/forgiveness in Theocratic religion.
I knew that both sports fanaticism and gambling were addictive and could sometimes seriously harm a susceptible person, but I also knew that virtually anything could cause a harmful addiction if a person has the right pattern of character defects. However, I also felt very strong background “vibes” in the counterculture that said, “Stay away from
spectator sports and big-time gambling.”

Consciousness
The answer to the first is technical and almost impossible to describe in English, but we’ll try. Since you, and probably a significant number of your readers, are familiar with electronic computers, we will use computer terminology for our explanation.

First, you have to realize that a normal state of consciousness is comparable to a computer program that’s already running in an input or output mode instead of a command mode. In an input mode, you can enter data into the files of the computer to be stored or processed. In an output mode, you can retrieve information that’s already been
processed, and print it out or make some other use of it. On most modern computers, you can switch between these two modes very easily, and this analogy seems to apply to the mind as well.
The input mode of normal consciousness consists of receiving information through the senses and entering it into the memory, where it is processed in various ways and is available for later retrieval. The output mode consists of making use of data that the mind has already processed to feel emotions, think, speak, listen, move the body, and perform a wide variety of other activities. The whole thing is much more complex and sophisticated than anything conceivable for electronic computers, even in theory, but the analogy should be clear.

However, you can’t modify the program that’s running on an electronic computer set to an input or output mode. In order to do that, you’d have to enter some kind of command mode.
Q. As an example, before I typed this paragraph, I entered the command mode of this word processing program and changed the margins for this one paragraph. But now I’m back in the input mode to write this.

A. When this analogy is applied to states of consciousness in the human mind, you have to realize that the situation is very complex. On one level, you feel that you have a great deal of free will, a large measure of control over what you think and do and even over
how you react emotionally. This is simply because you are aware of a large number of different alternative courses of action open to you at any given time.
You are much less aware of those alternatives that are not open to you. For example, large areas of your total memory are not available to conscious access at any particular time. Like many electronic computers, the human mind arranges memories in banks, and you normally have access to only a few of these at any one time.
You can change banks by an act of conscious will, but this often loses you access to information you could recall easily before, from the other memory bank. In addition, there’s the subconscious, which contains memories that are very rarely available for conscious access.

Q. It also appears to me that normal consciousness includes at least limited command functions: for example, deliberately “putting yourself in a mood” to do a particular thing that you couldn’t do without advance concentration and preparation. This may be analogous to certain capabilities on this word processing program: for example, I
don’t have to leave the input mode to PRINT IN ALL CAPS or to underline.
A. Yes, but you can’t change the line-length except by going into a command mode, as you did above. Now the point we’re trying to make here is that LSD and related psychedelic drugs create a state of consciousness that is similar to putting a computer into a command mode and making changes in the program that is being run.

Q. This brings us back to my original objections to your advocacy of indiscriminate use of powerful psychedelics during the Sixties. Going into a command mode on a computer is useless, and usually detrimental to finishing the job at hand, unless you know exactly what you’re doing. For example, the command mode I entered to change the margins could also have been used to delete the whole file I’m working on, and that could have been done by pushing only two keys.
A. Fortunately, the very complexity of the human mind makes it much less vulnerable than that. What actually happened when the average person in the Sixties Psychedelics Movement took LSD wasn’t the same as the limited work with entering a “command mode” and doing deliberate mental reprogramming that Western occultists have
traditionally done when they used psychedelics.
It operated on a level unknown to the occultists.
In other words, you yourself, and all the people you considered serious occultists, underwent the same involuntary mental changes as the “street hippies” did because of taking LSD. You accomplished your limited psychic training goals, while they did nothing but “sit and groove”; but the drug itself was doing something much more
fundamental to every one of you, every time you took it.
Q. I’d already guessed most of this, but it’s still a little disturbing to see it put into words. Exactly what changes are you talking about, and how do they relate to the analogy about command modes?
A. Well, the computer you are using to write this book has several different levels of command modes, doesn’t it?Q. Yes. For example, the lowest level is the one I used to change the margins. Beyond that is another level at which I could enter another application entirely, such as creating and sorting data in an address file. Beyond that, I could write a program in Basic or Assembly Language and create a word-processing file similar to this one, but with whatever modifications we desired. And beyond that, I could write or install a
Machine Language program that would change the computer’s capabilities for writing new programs, including teaching it an entirely different computer language.

A. OK. By this analogy, the traditional use of psychedelics by occultists is on the level of writing a Basic program. That’s how people learn to use telepathy and other psychic powers: they actually write a new program, but to do so, they use capabilities already
present in their mind all along, as your computer has the Basic programming language
among its files.

Q. This explains why psychedelics are not essential to psychic training. They can speed up the process under the right circumstances, but they don’t seem to be able to give a specific psychic talent to just anybody.
There are large numbers of otherwise intelligent and creative people who simply can’t learn to become telepaths or mediums, for example, with or without taking drugs.
On the other hand, a lot of experienced occult teachers who dislike drugs assert that they can accomplish exactly the same degree of psychic training for a given person without using drugs as could be accomplished with them; it would just take longer. I tend to
agree with them in general, though I still fall into the “pro” rather than the “anti”
camp of occultists when it comes to psychedelic drugs as a psychic training aid.
A. The real reason we advocated widespread use of LSD in the Sixties had nothing to do with the short-term effects of the drug, or with conscious use of those effects for psychic training. To get back to the computer-language analogy we’ve been using, the “mind-
expansion through LSD” that we were advocating involved a Machine Language program, not merely a Basic program.
Repeated use of LSD over several years makes fundamental changes in people’s mental programming, and we used LSD plus direct telepathic conditioning techniques to significantly reprogram the minds of several million Americans. We also used environmental conditioning through the general emotional climate of the Sixties counterculture itself, as expressed in its art, music, slogans, etc.
Q. To tell the truth, I found all that stuff about “Peace and Love and Flower Children and Dropping Out and Everything Should Be Free” to be naive and impractical at best, and at worst to be self-destructive.
A. You felt this way because you already had high ideals and were concerned mostly with trying to put them into practice. We created the emotional atmosphere you find naive and self-destructive simply to teach a certain amount of idealism to young people who had been raised in average Fifties American homes that almost completely lacked
it. Throughout their childhoods, they had been taught to value various shallow forms of material success more than anything else. We were trying to push them in the right direction, and advocating widespread use of the powerful psychedelics was our principal means of doing so.

Q. How did the reprogramming that you carried out through the Sixties counterculture and psychedelics movement compare in effectiveness with that accomplished through religious mind control by Theocratic religious groups?

A. There is a tremendous difference, roughly that between doing something using a high level of technology and doing it by human muscle power, with the psychedelic drug being analogous to the machinery. We did more reprogramming in a few years on more
people than the traditional religious Theocrats do in the same number of decades. Unfortunately, the Fifth-stage Theocrats now have access to mental reprogramming techniques just as effective as those we used in the Sixties; but this is a subject we’ll discuss later.

Diverent aliens *8

It is crazy to not invest our creative energy into envisioning that we can “come together,” and just as crazy to imagine that we can’t. If we aren’t investing our creative imagination in ways for us to heal and wake up, then what are we thinking?
Just like in a dream at night, when enough of us become lucid in the waking dream of life, we can connect with each other and put our lucidity together, changing the world in positive ways in the process (see “Lucid Dreaming”).
If people tell me I am a “dreamer” when I profess these idealistic and seemingly naïve beliefs, I will simply say, to quote the late John Lennon, “I am not the only one.”
There are ever-expanding numbers of us – millions? billions? – around the planet who in various ways are being drafted by the Self to be channels for a deeper process of awakening, enabling a vast range of entirely new and previously unimagined possibilities to become available to us.
The universe is dreaming itself awake through us.
When enough of us simply recognize the deeper, archetypal pattern that is happening, i.e., that the universe is waking itself up through us, we can “come together,” I “imagine,” and help each other to deepen and stabilize our mutually shared awakening, what I call “dreaming ourselves awake.”
As wounded healers, shamans, dreamers, and artists whose canvas is life itself, we can collaboratively create an “Art-Happening Called Global Awakening”.

The real demon is our own ego-clinging.
To the extent we are under the seeming influence of a demon is the extent to which we are clinging and grasping, trying to hold onto our concept of ourselves as a discrete and separate self, when in actuality there is nothing (no “thing”) to hold onto.
To the extent we are clinging or grasping, we have fallen into the self-reinforcing, habitual pattern of contracting against ourselves, and in so doing we are blocking our own light.

The concept of ‘heaven’ provides us with the hope of another life.

A lot of people hope they will go to heaven after they die, not only to eat ice cream all day (which might get old even for Beyonce and Marlon Brando, the legendary actor, who was seen buying five gallons at a time), but more importantly, to see their loved ones again.

Now, this article is not going to discuss spiritual beliefs nor take sides on whether this line of thinking is wrong or right. It will only observe that the concept of ‘heaven’ provides us with the hope of another life.

Does the soul exist?

Of course, the current scientific paradigm doesn’t recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We’re told we’re just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and then we die. And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations — no need for a soul. But biocentrism, where the observer is the basis of universe, challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality. In all directions, this outdated paradigm leads to insoluble enigmas, to ideas that are ultimately irrational. But knowledge is the prelude to wisdom, and soon our worldview will catch up with the facts.

Of course, most spiritual people view the soul as emphatically more definitive than the scientific concept. It’s considered the incorporeal essence of a person and is said to be immortal and transcendent of material existence. But when scientists speak of the soul (if at all), it’s usually in a materialistic context or treated as a poetic synonym for the mind. Everything knowable about the “soul” can be learned by studying the functioning of the brain. In their view, neuroscience is the only branch of scientific study relevant to understanding the soul.

As I sit here in my office surrounded by piles of scientific books, I can’t find a single reference to the soul, or any notion of an immaterial, eternal essence that occupies our being. Indeed, a soul has never been seen under an electron microscope, nor spun in the laboratory in a test tube or ultra-centrifuge. According to these books, nothing appears to survive the human body after death.

Observer challenges the traditional, materialistic model of reality

Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. The terms “life” and “death” are thus nothing more than the common concepts of “biological life” and “biological death.” The animating principle is simply the laws of chemistry and physics.

Dr. Caroline Soames-Watkins also believed that the world around her existed as a hard, cold reality ticking away like a clock. Death was a foregone conclusion—until she learned different. Caro, the protagonist of my new novel Observer co-written with award-winning sci-fi author Nancy Kress, also thought she had the world figured out. Not her personal world, which has been upended by controversy, but how the physical world works and how her consciousness operates within it. Broke and without a job, she accepts a job offer from her great-uncle, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who runs a research facility studying the space between biology and consciousness—between the self and what we assume is reality. He is on the verge of a humanity-altering discovery that could solve the riddle of mortality of the soul, and that throws Caro into danger—love, loss, and death—that she could never have imagined possible.

Observer takes Caro on a mind-expanding journey to the very edge of science, challenging her to think about life and death in startling new ways. The ideas behind Observer are based on real science, starting with the famous two-slit experiments, in which the presence of an observer affects the path taken by a sub-atomic particle, and moves step-by-step into cutting-edge science about quantum entanglement, on-going experiments applying quantum-level physics to the macro-world, the multiverse, and the nature of time, consciousness, and death itself.

Life and consciousness are central to this new view of being, reality, and the cosmos.

Consider the famous two-slit experiment. When you watch a particle go through the holes, it behaves like a bullet, passing through one slit or the other. But if no one observes the particle, it exhibits the behavior of a wave and can pass through both slits at the same time. This and other experiments tell us that unobserved particles exist only as “waves of probability” as the great Nobel laureate Max Born demonstrated in 1926. They’re statistical predictions — nothing but a likely outcome. Until observed, they have no real existence; only when the mind sets the scaffolding in place, can they be thought of as having duration or a position in space. Experiments make it increasingly clear that even mere knowledge in the experimenter’s mind is sufficient to convert possibility to reality.

Many scientists dismiss the implications of these experiments because until recently, this observer-dependent behavior was thought to be confined to the subatomic world. However, as laid out in Observer, this is being challenged by researchers around the world. In fact, just a few months ago three scientists were awarded the Nobel prize for these and other experiments.

The old mechanical view of death is outdated

We think we live a while then rot in the ground. We believe this because we associate ourselves with our body and we know bodies die. End of story.

Only that story is false, and a long series of experiments suggests death is not the terminal event we think—rather, it just represents a break in the linear continuity of space and time.

Einstein was right. After the death of an old friend, he wrote “Now Besso has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”

For example, you are young in one ‘now’, and you will experience wrinkles and graying hair in another ‘now.’ But in reality, they all exist in superposition. I like to think of it like one of those old phonographs. Listening to the music doesn’t alter the record itself. Depending on where the needle is, you hear a certain song. This is the present—the music before and after the song is the past and the future. In like manner, every moment endures in nature always. The record doesn’t go away. All ‘nows.’ Like all songs on the record, exist simultaneously, although we can only experience it piece by piece.

Life is like a perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse. One well-known aspect of quantum physics is that observations can’t be predicted absolutely. Instead, there is a range of possible observations, each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation, the ‘many-worlds’ interpretation, states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe –the ‘multiverse.’ There are an infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any one of them.

Consider an experiment published in the prestigious scientific journal Science. Scientists in France shot photons into an apparatus and showed that what they did could retroactively alter something that had already happened in the past. You heard that right! As the photons passed a fork in the apparatus, they had to decide whether to behave like particles or waves when they hit a beam splitter. Later on—after they had traveled nearly 50 meters past the fork—the experimenter could randomly switch a second beam splitter on and off. It turns out that what the observer decided at that point determined what the particle actually did at the fork in the past. At that moment, the experimenter chose his past.

Regardless of the choice you, the observer, make, it is you who will experience the outcomes that will result. The linkages between these various histories and universes transcend our ordinary classical ideas of space and time. Think of the 20-watts of energy as simply holo-projecting either this or that result onto a screen. Whether you turn the second beam splitter on or off, it’s still the same battery or agent responsible for the projection.

Your backup plan to heaven

At death there‘s a break in our linear stream of consciousness, and thus a break in the linear connection of times and places. Indeed, biocentrism suggests it‘s a manifold that leads to all physical possibilities.

So what is it like when you die? Of course, during our lives we all grow attached to the people we know and love and can never image a time without them. I subscribe to Netflix and recently went through all nine seasons of the TV series “Smallville.” I watched two or three episodes every night, day after day, for months. I watched Clark Kent grow up and go through all the normal growing pains of adolescence, young love and family dramas. He, Martha Kent and all the other characters became part of my life. Night after night I watched him use his emerging superpowers to fight crime as he matured, first attending high school and then college. I watched him fall in love with Lana Lang, and then become enemies with his former friend Lex Luthor. When I finished the last disk, it was like they had all died — it was all over.

Despite my sense of loss, I reluctantly tried a few other TV series, eventually stumbling upon “Grey‘s Anatomy.” The cycle started over again with completely different people. By the time I had finished all the seasons, Meredith Grey and her fellow doctors had replaced Clark Kent et al as the center of my world. I became completely caught up in the swirl of their personal and professional passions. In a very real sense, death is much like finishing a good TV series, whether “Grey‘s Anatomy,” “Smallville” or “Game of Thrones,” except the multiverse has a much bigger collection of DVDs than Netflix. Just like at death, you change reference points. It‘s still you, but you experience different lives, different friends and even different worlds.

Think of a football field full of stacks of DVDs piled up to the sky. At death, you‘ll even get to watch some re-makes — perhaps in one, you‘ll get that dream wedding dress you always wanted, or a doctor cures the disease that caused your loved one to die.

And since it applies to all sentient life (not just us humans), you’ll get to see Spot and Fluffy again as well.

A scientific model that at last makes sense

By the time Caro finishes her journey in Observer, her views of the universe have shifted. Hints of the biocentric nature of the universe have been made by some of the greatest scientists in modern physics, including Heisenberg, Planck, Schrodinger, and Bohr—the founders of quantum mechanics—among many others. As Caro, a realistic and pragmatic woman, moves through her adventures in friendship, love, and danger, she experiences first-hand the truth that those eminent physicists already knew.

And that the backup plan is real.

Adapted from Observer by Robert Lanza and Nancy Kress (The Story Plant).

Lanza’s new novel “OBSERVER” lays out these ideas to a broader audience, and through storytelling brings to life the science behind the astounding fact that time, space, and reality itself, all ultimately depend upon us, the observer.

Alien Abstract


Possible States Theory discusses change in the abstract; it has a single description of change, equally applicable to acts of mind and physical phenomena. Change is defined as an interaction between collections of possible states, which include past, future and possible outcomes. All possible outcomes coincide in the complex present. This allows competent observer to participate in possible states interactions that are unconstrained by time, distance or conservation laws. The technique of coordinate remote viewing was used in a study of technologically advanced alien life forms. The primary focus of the study was on two specific species but general knowledge of multiple others was
also obtained. One of the two major species may be characterized as well disposed while the other may be classed as exploitative. Both species maintain facilities on Earth. The differences between the human species and these species are profound and go well beyond levels of technological development. Both alien species are forms of collective intelligence, which was true of all intelligent species studied. The human decision to militarize interaction with alien species may be characterized as inappropriate and potentially counterproductive. Unsuccessful efforts to communicate were made by all sides prior to this study. Substantial obstacles to communication exist based upon attitudes and beliefs of both humans and aliens. Among the most important findings are the unusual, perhaps unique biodiversity found on the Earth and the value aliens place on sentience. To the extent that the conclusions are correct, these findings hold significant implications for the future of humanity.

  1. Introduction
    Possible States Theory [1] discusses change in the abstract and generalizes about change without reference to the specific objects and things that are changed. The model of the universe offered by the theory is finite and discrete. The dimensionality of an interaction between collections of possible states is a variable and may be any positive integer. Possible States Theory is compatible with quantum electrodynamics in a finite and discrete environment. The image of the universe thus formed is a constantly shifting sea of possible states in which the past, the future and the possible are commingled.
    However, it cannot be the Dirac Sea because, per GödelÑs incompleteness theorems [2], the universe cannot be unambiguously represented as information; that is, as ones and zeros. The task of mapping an object that changes as a function of the observation is not a problem that is currently addressable.
    All that can be known of an object is identified through interactions with its collection of possible states. These states include all past, future and possible interactions with other collections, which interact without reference to separation in space and time. Collections (sometimes called zoos) of possible states evolve, but making a choice does not cause the alternatives not chosen to disappear. To elaborate, the state vector in quantum theory contains all of the past, future and possible states; when an observation is made it collapses mathematically to a single value. This is popularly thought to mean that once a choice is made, the alternatives disappear leaving only a single state of reality. Possible States Theory does not have this feature; alternatives continue to exist.
    The demand that the universe order itself in line with our ability to perceive only one reality at a time is unreasonable. Physicists regard quantum mechanics as implying that many possible states exist in the same space on an atomic level. Richard Feynman for example[3] explains that the paths that have to be summed could be anywhere in space and time. From the possible states perspective we live in a complex present that is a permanent now, in which everything that can happen does and it all happens at once. The theory treats all change in the same way; it uses no special mechanism for acts of mind. It follows that acts of mind can interact with each other and with physical objects regardless of spatial and time-wise separation.
  2. From this viewpoint, memory requires sorting a collection of possible states with criteria that
    define Èthe pastŠ and using the mind to create and manipulate images; imagination and foresight involve sorting and imaging the collection using different criteria. This model accounts for phenomena as diverse as remote viewing[4], telepathy and psychokinesis in the same way as other forms of change.
    Possible States Theory states that acts of mind, such as remote viewing, are direct interactions with
    what is viewed. The viewer can affect what is viewed, and events taking place at the scene may also affect the viewer.
    Methodology
    Events that gave rise to the data in this article included photographs, radar traces, physical evidence
    and/or competent witness observations that suggested the presence of an anomalous physical object. The procedure employed was coordinate remote viewing, in which geographical coordinates or other unique identifiers of an event are written on paper, which is then folded and given to the viewer. The viewer is not told what the coordinates or the unique identifiers are.
    Remote viewing has been part of the scientific literature for more than thirty years. The initial study
    was multiply replicated. A substantial body of research literature exists supporting the phenomenon However, the accuracy of the technique under the unusual circumstances that produced the findings of this study cannot be determined. The illusion of a three-dimensional reality, linear time and walls that cannot be seen through is maintained by the internal dialogue. This is a constant stream of mental chatter in which the brain reflexively names everything that is perceived. If it is allowed to flow, it will erase or distort high strangeness data. The viewer therefore begins by shutting off the internal dialogue.
    The act of providing the coordinates joins the viewer to a chain of possible states interactions; the
    chain may be followed back to its origin and the image-creating faculty of the mind used to observe the original incident. The observation is itself an interaction with the original incident and all parties to it, a fact with important ramifications.
    Remote viewing does not ordinarily produce reliable alphanumeric information. The reason is that the viewer perceives a superposition of possible states; a street sign will often be blurry because the street might have been named Oak, Walnut, Cherry or Pine and all possibilities are simultaneously present. The same is true of numbers. Nevertheless, complex comparisons can be made and reasoning can take place, so the technique can yield an abundance of useful information.
    The destinations in this study involved extraordinarily challenging interactions, both with aliens and
    with alien technology. In high strangeness settings such as these, there are no familiar elements in the environment. The task in remote viewing is analogous to learning a foreign language while dealing with unfamiliar objects. The viewer must dispense with his or her original frame of reference, including language, and make an adjustment to an entirely different context. As the viewer becomes more familiar with the environment, it slowly becomes possible to resolve the objects intellectually. There is, to put it succinctly, a huge translation problem.
    The observations that will be presented can in theory be verified by comparing them with other sources of information. Government agencies and defense corporations hold the larger body of information about high strangeness phenomena in strict secrecy. The secret data may consist primarily of photographs, radar traces, infrared and microwave emanations and a few anecdotal accounts by individuals who obtained a close look at the phenomenon. It is very unlikely that corroboration exists for the depth of information
    acquired by the author.
    Owing to the difficulty of the task, it is unlikely that another remote viewer will be able to repeat the
    work in the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, given the potential importance of the findings it was deemed improper to withhold them. Objective The initial purpose of the study was to learn about technology deployed by advanced alien species. As the study progressed the objective was broadened to include alien attitudes toward the human species and their intentions with respect to the Earth, the relevant exopolitics, the challenge of communication and a strategy by which it may be achieved, observations of their technology and some options available to humanity in dealing with the alien colonizers. The larger picture of how humanity can advance into the future was addressed.
  3. Analysis
    The events that were investigated represented very disparate contact experiences. Given the significant variations in appearance that are found among humans, there was no reason to assume that alien species would be any less diverse. The task of deciding which events belonged to a particular species was difficult. Many of the incidents concerned sightings of anomalous flying objects, and many of these devices turned out to be intelligent and sentient but not carrying biological life forms.
    Mental acts such as remote viewing and the ability to pay attention to something are acts of
    technology for both alien species. Whereas humans can distinguish between sentience and intelligence (the neighborhood deer are sentient but not intelligent; the authorÑs house cats are both sentient and intelligent), aliens have many more categories to choose from. Humans look at technology as composed of inert objects; that is one of the key differences between humans and advanced species. Virtually anything humans do with the mind can be performed by aliens as an act of technology, and they can do additional things that humans have yet to imagine.
    A decision was made to sort the alien contacts with respect to the development of technology. The
    author hypothesized that while members of a species might differ by appearance, the order in which
    important discoveries were made was consistent within a species. Development trains could be compared.
    Using these criteria, the study indicates that at least three alien species are visiting Earth. There are
    almost certainly more than three. The possibility cannot be excluded that at least one species originated here and is sharing the planet with us.
    The findings present a picture of technologically advanced species that differ in important ways from
    human beings. The majority of the observations concern two species, which will be discussed in detail.
    The reader should bear in mind that all observations contain errors; in this case neither the magnitude nor the direction of the error can be estimated.
    Concerning the most numerous species, the physical appearance of the individuals varies, perhaps
    more than among humans. They are primarily a short, bipedal, large-headed, large-eyed, thin-limbed species. On the single occasion when one was seen in the nude, there were no visible organs of generation or elimination like those possessed by humans. On the front in the center of the body
    (approximately where the human navel would be) there was a large oval area where the texture and
    differentiation of the skin was observably different. Its origin and function are unknown. Speculatively, the skin surface of the oval area was reminiscent of the pebbled surface of the human tongue.
    No immature members of this species were observed. It is not known how they create their units or
    their progeny. The emotions exhibited by this species appear to be very limited. They are task oriented. In some castes they can feel the equivalent of fear. They are also capable of anger. Individuation is both a matter of degree and a function of caste within this species. The short, more numerous units resemble living robots. They appear to act as animated tools. As caste rises the units become taller, more intelligent and more fully autonomous. Nevertheless, individual decision making is very limited. To all intents and purposes, this species functions as a collective intelligence analogous to an ant colony.
    Individuation is also a matter of degree among humans. This is acknowledged in human concepts
    like ÈmobŠ and observed in events such as violent brawls between fans at sports events. Humans do not generally recognize the loss of individual initiative as undesirable. Many human social processes, for example the addition of an individual to military forces, actually celebrate the loss of individuality. The incorporation of an intelligent individual into an unintelligent collective must logically be seen as a loss, however.
    To make a comparison between humans and aliens: the taller units sometimes described by human
    witnesses are probably members of the next higher caste (above the tools). Its members perform tasks requiring specialized knowledge. The authorÑs notes refer to it as the technician caste. They are intelligent and perform their assigned tasks flawlessly. A human being with Ph.D.s in two different sciences from a top-ranked university and no personal life whatsoever might function at that level. It is one of the lowest alien castes.
    The secret of their success is that they never forget anything. They can be surprised, but they can be
    surprised only once. After the first incident they prepare a response and distribute it to all of their units. If the incident recurs, the previously prepared response is immediately implemented no matter how far removed it may be in space and time from the original event. This is a salient fact about the species.
    By way of illustration, early in the study of alien species the author paid a visit to an orbital colonizer
    facility via remote viewing. The facility handled experiments on human beings. The human participants did not benefit from these experiments. The author broke a module and released some humans from connection with the experiments. Two colonizer units, who seemed to be low-grade technicians, appeared agitated by this action but did not interfere.
    Inspired by the experience, the author made a second visit with the intention of releasing all of the
    human beings in the studies. The author was accompanied on this occasion by a group of colleagues. In the meantime Group B had prepared a weapon. It deployed as soon as the author interacted with the module. The author and colleagues managed a safe return by the narrowest possible margin. Future visits
    to this orbital facility will undoubtedly be met by an improved weapon.
    The species has an enormous industrial base involving several planets. Their economy is extremely
    efficient but it is a net consumer. They colonize and are in an expansion phase. The scale of their
    operations here suggests that they have progressed beyond initial scientific studies and are actively mining our mineral and biological resources. Their intent is to establish a colony on Earth.
    They do not consider humanity an intelligent species. There is more than one reason for this attitude
    on their part but the principal element appears to be the following: the species regularly collects humans for examination and subsequent release. This usually occurs in rural areas. Individuals who are later collected and interrogated, in what may be widely separated geographical locations, display no knowledge of the previous alien-human interactions. Therefore the species has concluded that humans do not learn from experience.
    For convenience this species will be referred to as Èthe colonizers.Š In the authorÑs notes they are
    designated as Group B because this was the second species that was encountered.
    The first species is composed of units that appear to be tall thin bipeds; however, their sense of self is vested in a collective purpose. Individual units are not significant to this species and they do not view individual biological units as intelligent beings. From that standpoint it is no more appropriate to regard this species as an assembly of individuals than it is to treat a human being as a collection of independent cells. It is an enormously diverse, enormously bright collective intelligence.
    The technology possessed by this species is conceptually very advanced, but its engineering is
    characterized by an elegant simplicity. Structures that they build have a strikingly unusual appearance.
    From the authorÑs notes, concerning the first remote viewing of this species:
    “I was standing in a large dark space with a low ceiling-I think it was a rock or dirt ceiling-that
    reminded me of an empty parking garage. The air was thin and chilly. I was looking at a row of strange colonnades. They were joined by arcs something like the supports of a Roman aqueduct. Apart from that resemblance, the architecture was unlike anything I had ever seen. I remember saying ‘Human beings don’t usually build this way.’ They don’t ever build this way. Human constructions utilize interchangeable parts. A blueprint is created and workers are trained to implement it by putting specified components in specified places. These colonnades were very complex, with many different kinds of conduit and structural elements, but they had an astonishing cohesion. There were few if any interchangeable parts. It was as if to the minutiae; it was as if the colonnades had been built by a single mind. The aesthetic impact was striking. No human being had built such things; no human being had conceived of such things.”
    This species does not colonize. They appear to live in space and are migratory on an astronomical scale in a regular pattern. They have some facilities on Earth for scientific studies and operational convenience.
    They do not believe that human beings are an intelligent species; however, they admit the possibility that human beings can develop intelligence. This species will hereafter be referred to as the (comparatively) benign species. They are designated as Group A.
    A brief comment upon the initial differences that a remote viewer encounters with each Group may be in order. Group A defends its craft and facilities with characteristic shielding that is designed to prevent remote viewing and remote influencing by any means, including acts of technology. It is difficult to obtain access to a Group A facility. Once that is achieved, Group A does not harass the viewer.
    Group B domains are much easier to enter. However, the colonizers resist remote viewing with a
    variety of means including weapons, booby traps and energy fields that make remote viewing difficult. In the case of the fields, the act of viewing was made as strenuous as walking in deep water. Interaction with Group B became progressively more dangerous as the study continued.
    Remote viewing is an intrusion readily noticed by all intelligent species that have been observed.
    Human beings can also notice the intrusion of another personÑs attention although few humans make use of the capability.
  4. Comparisons
    The opportunity to study another species affords a unique perspective. With respect to comparative
    intelligence, humans are not very bright. By a variety of reasonable tests, advanced alien societies display performance superior to human society. The human norm is significantly below that of any space-faring species studied.
  5. Humans produce some bright individuals, but these are not the individuals who run our
    governments or make any of our important decisions. Our society assigns no special value to intelligence and makes no systematic use of it. Traits such as wealth, physical beauty and athletic prowess are more enthusiastically sought after.
    Group B compiled an extensive database on human beings. Much of the information is biological and chemical, related to their scientific studies. The purpose of the studies is to find ways human beings can be of use to the colonizers; for example, some studies concerned the use of human beings to manufacture specific biological essences.
  6. From their perspective, human behavior centers upon efforts by the male to secure food and resources for himself and his family. Our species is very prolific, leading to constant
    fighting between males within the tribe and repeated cycles of territorial warfare.
    The colonizers deduced that the behavior is biologically determined: human males have a biological
    urge to fight one another. Our species produces males and females in approximately equal numbers.
    Organized society cannot tolerate such a high proportion of males; it results in fragmentation and is
    ultimately the cause of war. They calculated the birth ratio of females to males that would prevent war.
    The threshold was reached at approximately eight to one.
    An alteration in the birth ratio was a logical idea for the colonizers, who are skilled biological
    engineers. The author observed no intention on their part to put this solution into practice; they merely calculated a parameter. However unappealing such a solution might be, it may have theoretical merit.
    Given a large preponderance of females, human males would no longer need to fight each other to obtain mates; the evolutionary value of male aggression would largely be erased. As for women, the eight wives would be protective of their one husband; it is unlikely that he would be allowed to risk himself in fights

The colonizers do not have human emotional drives; therefore our language is largely meaningless to
them. They concluded (a carefully reasoned judgment based upon concepts foreign to us) that the purpose of all of our social organizations is to sort competitive males into dominance hierarchies. These hierarchies are unstable because instinct-driven individual competition outweighs the central purpose.
The absence of rational behavior by our collectives and the chaotic and mutually predatory nature of
their interactions is a major obstacle in trying to persuade either alien species that human beings possess
intelligence. Human collectives, whether they are governments, political parties, armies, churches or
corporations, function at the level of the lowest common denominator. Bureaucracies develop and
individual initiative is extinguished. Eventually the collective becomes terminally inefficient and
disintegrates. Aliens compare this with their own superbly integrated collectives and draw appropriate
conclusions.
Human beings are actually capable of a form of cooperation in which individuality is not sacrificed and
assets such as experience, knowledge and intelligence are additive. Each member feels the experience of
the group to be his or her own. This is the potential beginning of a group mind but is so rarely practiced
that it is virtually invisible to observers.
Both the colonizers and the (comparatively) benevolent species value species self-awareness, which is
not found among humans. Individual humans decide who they are and what they want to do with their
lives. We have never collectively assessed ourselves as a life form and decided what our purpose in
existence should be. Both of the alien species have accomplished that. They see the absence of species
self-awareness as evidence that there is not enough intelligence present for our species to become self
aware.
There is a striking difference between species in individuation and the distribution of intelligence. The
colonizers and the (comparatively) benign species are two different forms of collective consciousness.
The colonizers are similar to communally living insects; units slowly become more capable of individual
initiative and self-awareness as caste level increases. By contrast the (comparatively) benign species may
have started out as individual biological units in the very remote past, but it now functions as an extremely well integrated, complex collective. Every part appears to possess intelligence and initiative. It is a true group mind.
The human species is composed of autonomous individuals, giving us great advantages in originality
and flexibility. The average biological unit amongst us is capable of individual initiative. On the other
hand we are unable to make organized use of this capability because our collectives are not intelligent.
The colonizers have units who are much more efficient than our individuals, completely obedient, and
highly intelligent within specified limits. Their technicians are trainedÙ one could as well say
programmedÙ for a very high level of competence in their specialties. Beyond that no resources are
invested in these units. They do not have private lives as we know them.
Individuation, which involves self-awareness and the capacity for individual initiative, is a matter of
degree among the colonizers and it is controlled by caste. The sense one has as a viewer is that the caste
distinction is absolute; some physiological difference or inflexible social condition is involved. The lower
castes are irrevocably lower. Some of them seem not to be individuals at all, but built-to-purpose units of
limited initiative. Mechanical devices made by this species may have some of the characteristics we
associate with intelligence. They may possess self-awareness. They can detect and interact with remote
viewers. Devices made by the (comparatively) benign species may have a much higher level of sentience
and capabilities so sophisticated that it is unclear whether one is dealing with a created intelligence or a
biological life form.
In consequence, distinctions now thought meaningful by human beings such as artificial-natural and
sentient versus non-sentient are inapplicable. The lines between individual and collective as well as tool
and tool-user are unclear among alien species. These distinctions appear to be artifacts of the current level of human technology and individuation.
These studies found no basis for popular memes such as human-alien hybrids, aliens walking among us
in disguise, aliens and humans working together in underground bases, treaties between human
governments and aliens, the Galactic Federation or the Prime Directive. The author had expected to find
Legends of ancestors from the stars in the lore of other species but did not, despite the fact that they live
surrounded by stars just as we do.
During these studies the following insight emerged: human interaction is strongly oriented toward
parent-child relationships, mating, male rivalry and defense of the family. Perhaps the true function of
emotions is to organize our behavior around our fundamental biological relationships. Aliens lack these
biological and social relationships entirely. They cannot be parents, children, lovers, brothers or even
enemies to us. Human beings must not bring these attitudes to the negotiating table. It is an error to
interpret the acts of other species in terms of human social interactions.
The (comparatively) benevolent species explained that intelligent species do not engage in territorial
warfare. Indeed, there is friction between Group A and Group B and they have exchanged fire on multiple
occasions, but that is not warfare as humans know it. The implicit assumptions of parity and equivalence
of motive that underlie human territorial warfare are missing.
With reference to acts of mind such as remote viewing and psychokinesis, observation so far indicates
that on a per-unit basis the colonizers are substantially less powerful than human beings, at least as far as
the lower castes are concerned. The colonizers supplement the abilities of their units with technology.
Because some elements of their technology so closely approximate acts of mind, one may speculate that
their species contains some fully psi-capable individuals (or did at one time).
For example, consider the automobile: it has a nervous system, a digestive system, an air intake, four
limbs and two eyes. It is an imitation animal. Other species also copy the life forms and phenomena with
which they are familiar. To create psi-capable technology the colonizers may have copied abilities that
some members of their species displayed.
Both alien species use technology that can interact with the viewerÑs attention and can operate in ways
that a naïve human observer might think are supernatural.

We commonly assume that solid objects cannot move through walls without making holes that an event must be either Èreal or in the mind,Š that an object can be in only one place at a time and that the flow of time moves in only one direction. Aliens violate these assumptions freely by acts of technology.
The predominant mode of communication among intelligent species is a direct interaction of
consciousness, independent of language. That was true of every species studied. Context was occasionally
an issue but there was no language barrier.
The colonizers have attitudes that should be of interest to us. They are intolerant of failure. Units who
fail to complete their assignments are considered defective. The capital investment in the individual is
considered and a decision is reached on the further usefulness of that unit. If the error is large in
comparison to the value of the unit, the unit is disposed of. No resources are expended on flawed units.
Some of the higher caste units understood the consequence of failure in their assignments and dreaded it.
They appeared sufficiently individuated to fear personal extinction.
The closest equivalent to the concept ÈnegotiationŠ in their language carries the suggestion that the
good of their species might be sacrificed for another purpose. Because their highest value is the good of
the species, that translates as a treasonous and despicable act. The term appears to originate in their early
history when primitive collectives fought for dominion. The nature of Group B is very different today. It
is highly integrated and its behavior is uniform. Its highest value is itself.
The species consists of very extensive hierarchies. There is a favored element which will never be seen
on Earth until the planet is considered fully pacified; those is, when human beings no longer operate
technology or offer any competition for resources. This element is individuated on a level comparable to
human beings but will never be accessible to human contact. The possibility must be considered that all of the visible part of Group B comprises a manufactured service structure that supports the favored element.
Efforts to resolve issues on principle will not succeed because the highest principle recognized by this
species is the expansion of the race. Once established on a planet, even in a small territory, they expand
and eventually push out all others. It is a biological imperative for them. They do not coexist. The
accommodations they have reached with other species are mutually stressful.
At the time the above observation was originally made, a detachment of colonists was on its way to the
Earth. The colonists have now arrived and are constructing underground bases. Each base or node is the
kernel of a future colony. The behavior of the species is reclusive in the early stage of colonization.
Activities are surreptitious; interaction is avoided. As the node develops self-sufficiency and capability the
behavior changes. Scouting and other operations become bolder. Eventually foreign technology is actively harassed and repelled. Ultimately this species will not tolerate any foreign technology in areas they control.
The pattern of airliner-UFO incidents on one of the runways at Mexico CityÑs international airport may
indicate the presence of a colonizer node. These anomalous objects may be defending what they consider to be their territory. The colonizers will eventually lay claim to part of a major city somewhere on Earth.
The only public sign of this development may be a mass evacuation, with a strict ban on any entry into the affected area and air travel above it. Presumably satellite images will be altered or expunged.
A land seizure may already have occurred. The takeover of the land around Laguna Cartagena in
Puerto Rico by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is suggestive in this respect. The area had long since
been settled and developed; there were no rare species left to protect. However, the location had figured in a remarkable series of incidents that appeared to represent conflict between different types of alien craft and, almost certainly, species. Human beings have now been removed and government forces actively patrol the perimeter.
The behavior of Group B has evolved. In the 1980s they were not confrontational, although they
employed booby traps, weapons, alarms and remote viewer deterrent technology on their ships and in
their facilities. Recently this author and a colleague encountered them by accident while doing a
geological remote viewing in Puerto Rico. We discovered a major underground construction project,
which we had not expected, and were apprehended. The units reviewed the colleagueÑs possible states,
decided he was not a threat and let him go. (He experienced this as being shown visions of his future.) The author had never encountered this part of Group B before but was recognized. The explanation that we were only tourists was dismissed. The author was given a strong warning not to return.
The units that apprehended us and delivered the message seemed to be the equivalent of soldier ants.
They were perhaps two ranks above the tools. These were not technicians; they were warfare specialists,
and they were formidable The behavior of Group B follows the pattern the colonizers have displayed on other worlds. Absent a significant change in circumstances, the human species will come under increasing pressure from the colonizers. It is their practice to expand until confronted by a species with comparable or more advanced technology. We share a value with this species: the bottom line. If viewing is accurate, the travel time between Earth and their origin is almost 40 Earth years (the species is capable of faster than light travel; its origin is very distant, perhaps in another galaxy). That is a long supply line by anyoneÑs standards. Significant resources are already committed to operations here. Local units will be held strictly accountable by their superiors for the management of this material. This fact may furnish a basis for negotiation.
The origin of Group A is inside the Milky Way, although they may have spread more widely; they are
remarkable travelers. Their specific origin is on the far side of the galaxy on the opposite side of the plane
of the ecliptic. While the members and apparatus of the local establishment are capable of independent
decision-making, an event that falls outside parameters requires consultation with central control. The
turnaround time for the consultation is eleven hours, almost to the minute. The communication occurs
much faster than the speed of light. However, it takes a small fraction of time for the communication to
pass through each node and there seems to be a very large number of nodes. It is conceivable that all of
Group A participates in a decision made by primary central control.
This process of communication has been observed twice. The first instance occurred during the first
contact between the author and Group A. On that occasion, after the first remote viewing revealed the
presence of alien technology, the author returned, gained entry a second time and did extensive damage to local central control with the objective of preventing the departure of the aliens so that their technology could be studied. Eleven hours later the attention of Group A arrived and a conversation ensued. The author promised not to interfere with sensitive systems and Group A agreed to answer any questions the author asked.

This arrangement led to an enlightening dialogue.
The author deduced that wrecking central control had perturbed Group A not so much on account of
the damage as the fact that it was B-like. If Group B had learned how to get through AÑs defenses, it
would be a problem requiring immediate attention. Upon making contact, Group A expressed surprise to
find an intelligent presence on Earth and asked whether they should leave. A decision was called for. The
author informed Group A that we were delighted to have them here and rolled out the red carpet in every
way she could think of. Group A assumed that the author was a nascent group mind and set about the task of education. This involved answering the authorÑs questions and giving instruction in how intelligent species communicate.
The fact that Group A thought the author was a group mind did not become clear until some seven
months later. The author began to write a letter to a friend who was in conflict with his in-laws. The
subject of the letter was what is owed to the collective and what is owed to oneself. Group A interrupted
with ÈYou speak of individuals. Are you one such?Š That truth was admitted to. Group A responded
ÈIndividuals do not possess intelligence.Š ÈThen how are we having this conversation?Š the author
retorted.
Group A cut communications but returned after about an hour with a designation equivalent to
Èindividual biological unit potentially capable of intelligence.Š That was a remarkable feat of intellectual
honesty. They had never before made an exception to their belief that only collectives could possess
intelligence.
In the second observed incident of communication with all of Group A, a group of Navy warships had
performed a communications exercise at sea close to the location of some UO incidents. The majority of
the participants believed that it was a standard military exercise using advanced technology. The real
purpose of the exercise was to evoke a response from UFOs. It did, but by the time a UFO rose out of the
waterÙ eleven hours laterÙ the exercise had long since finished and the officers in charge had gone home
thinking they had failed.

It took some time to work out the purpose of the Group A station on Earth. They are able to transmit
physical things over great distances. This station is strategically placed for this purpose. When the author
first checked they were transmitting water. It seemed very pure with some faint chemical traces that
seemed to include acetone and one or two other chemicals. Some of it spattered during transit; the
engineers (equivalent) had to mop up afterwards. On other occasions the author has seen them moving
what appear to be gaseous forms of uranium and deuterium.
These visitors offer a remarkable opportunity to learn and evolve. Group B made efforts to dislodge
them; they have resisted because they want to see what becomes of humanity and whether we can develop intelligence.

  1. Options
    The situation can be advantageous for human beings. We have the opportunity to study advanced
    technology and perhaps to make a quantum leap in what we are able to do. We will have the opportunity to see ourselves as others see us. For the first time we may be able to share ideas with more intelligent species. We may even become self-aware.
    Meanwhile, the aliens are actively mining our resources. This alters our future. They are taking at least one entire technology from us. A mineral is being mined which is useful in a manufacturing process that we have not yet invented. If that continues, we will never develop that technology because the mineral will no longer exist in useful quantities by the time we are ready for it.
    If remote viewing is even somewhat accurate, it is not in our interest to allow alien colonization. At the same time, war is both an inappropriate and a futile choice. Territorial warfare is a biologically
    determined human behavior. The aliens will not go to war with us. They cannot. Should we attempt to engage them in warfare, our failure to recognize the profound differences between humans and aliens will be clear evidence to all onlookers that we are not an intelligent species.
    After careful study, the author ascertained that the only behavior reminiscent of war that the colonizers can produce is evoked in the context of a species survival emergency. In view of the disparity in intelligence, technological capability, complexity of organization, length of experience, size of industrial plant and number of units, human interests would not be well served by evoking that response.
    As inhabitants of the disputed land mass, we cannot afford to blow it up. The problem must be
    resolved another way.
    Extensive research failed to reveal any useful analysis on this topic. We have not developed a
    method for conducting a negotiation with nonhumans. That is true even with respect to animals, who have much more in common with us than humans do with aliens and who have lived with us for millennia. Our civilization makes use of animals in many ways, but humans do not usually communicate with animals, who are believed to have nothing of value to say. The opportunity to converse with the nonhuman occupants of Earth has not been utilized. Some animals have learned a few words of human language;
    where is the human who speaks gorilla or dolphinese?
    As a species we have no plan. It is in our interest to develop one.
  2. Communication
    At present the interaction with alien species is primarily controlled by military forces, which fire
    indiscriminately on craft of all species. This is a nuisance to the visitors, who have started to return fire and sometimes open fire when a radar lock is made. The practice occasionally results in the acquisition of damaged alien craft, or parts thereof, but very little has been learned. Our current level of scientific development does not provide adequate insight; the mere possession of foreign technology does not automatically enable reverse engineering.
    The development of rapport with Group A could have spectacular benefits if they are willing to
    communicate and assist us technologically. All that is required is for human beings to develop the ability to hold an intelligent conversation.
    That is more difficult than it may seem. Multiple efforts to communicate with alien species have been
    secretly made by governments, and the aliens have attempted to communicate with us.[5] An example of the latter occurred in 1966 at Minot Air Force Base. The Base housed a group of strategic nuclear missiles. As recounted by author Robert Hastings: ÈWhen the UFO buzzed Echo Capsule, Schuur says
    seven or eight missiles began registering õspurious indicators.ÑThen a õLaunch in ProgressÑ switch was tripped, which forced operators to manually override with an õInhibitÑ command. Finally, when the UFO passed, all systems returned to normal.Š[6]
    Visitors have often displayed interest in military facilities. These installations represent the pinnacle of human technological achievement. It is reasonable to think that if intelligence exists on Earth, it could be found there. Remote viewing suggests that the aliens interacted with the missiles in a search for an
    intelligent response, perhaps for evidence of sentience in the technology.
    Of the efforts made by governments to communicate with aliens, there is no evidence that any has
    succeeded. Group A and Group B are collective intelligences; this was the case for every other intelligent species that was surveyed. It is a mistake to assume that our visitors are individuals like ourselves. The default assumption should be that the other is a collective intelligence and that whether or not a biological entity is present, the other is sentient. Furthermore, it should be assumed to be in real time contact with the species that produced it. Aliens will make these assumptions about us.
    Politeness in our society entails recognition of the other as an individual. It is customary to ask the
    name of the other and then try to determine his or her place in the relevant hierarchy. When strangers meet, particularly if they are males, a dominance relationship is negotiated and ratified. That is largely achieved by body language, and must proceed before any cooperative acts can take place. These behaviors have a purpose in our own species but must not be carried over into other contexts. Interactions focused on individual dominance make no sense to a collective intelligence.
    Communication with intelligent species requires the ability to carry on an intelligent conversation.
    Intelligent beings do not reason contrary to fact. Counter-factual statements and assumptions would not occur in an intelligent conversation, yet human beings frequently use them. The field of statistics revolves around the normal distribution, a nexus of counterfactual assumptions. (Nonparametrics, in which no underlying distribution is assumed, are largely exempt from the problem.) A common expression like Èif I were youŠ is overtly counter-factual.
    From the perspective of Group A, a communication refers to a possible or actual occurrence. A true
    statement references a chain of possible states interactions. The chain is looked for and its ramifications are considered. By contrast, the units of Group B are supplied with their beliefs by the collective. These units do very little fact checking on their own. They do not re-evaluate fundamental premises.
    A human being can utter words that reference non-existent or contradictory chains such as Ègravity
    does not existŠ or Èthere is surface train service between New York and Australia.Š Group A does not say such things and would not accept statements that offer such expressions as true. Group B pays no attention to the content of human communications, which they regard as unintelligent utterances.
    Human beings take errors for granted. They assume that the other will allow multiple trials of a
    communication effort before concluding that it has failed. Intelligent species do not make that assumption.
    Errors are not expected and are not allowed for. It is imperative that when communication is initiated, an intelligent conversation must follow. A single mistake may be enough to convince the other that the initial appearance of intelligence was accidental; they may then refuse all future contact. They will, at the very least, decline all contact through the medium used by the failed attempt. There is a limited number of available media. Radio and microwave signals will no longer serve, due to previous failed efforts.
    All over the world, humans blink flashlights at UFOs. This has removed optical signals from the list of
    ways in which human beings could initiate an intelligent conversation. Sometimes the UFOs blink back;
    that is not significant. In all probability human light blinking is considered on a par with fireflies flashing to attract mates. Nothing resembling an intelligent conversation ever ensues. It is regrettable that this benign and simple technology has been disabled as a medium of communication. It is important that the same errors not be made with respect to other potential media.
    The insertion of meaningful data such as mathematical series in a bit stream has been widely discussed as a possible indicator of intelligence. The problem is that our electronic devices produce complex electromagnetic emissions. That by itself is not evidence of intelligence from the alien point of view. The missiles in the capsule produced their own emanations, in which human beings had invested a great deal of effort. They also carried a powerful collection of possible states. There was every reason to think that if communication was possible it would be achieved there; yet it was not. An intelligent response was not received. The visitor consequently dismissed the complexity of electromagnetic emanations as an
    indicator of intelligence.
    Simply the fact that an object emits electromagnetic signals, including very complex signals, does not say anything about its degree of sentience. However, communication does not depend upon technology.
    Mind to mind communication is quite feasible if human beings take the trouble to learn how. Even in that mode, great care must be taken to avoid the mistakes previously mentioned. The conversation must be intelligent, and it must ultimately be supported by reciprocal physical actions.
  3. Technology Transfer
    Technology transfer is not a simple problem. In the absence of common scientific belief structures, we do not have a ready way to assimilate foreign technology. The simple possession of foreign objects does not enable us to understand them. Imagine members of a Stone Age tribe trying to assemble a flying object from random parts of a 747 jet airliner, a Piper Cub and a riding lawnmower. The parts are not meaningful in themselves. What matters are the ideas behind them.
    The acquisition of an advanced foreign technology must begin with the principles it is based upon.
    They must be converted into experiments. It is necessary to repeat the development train, but one can do so knowing what the end product will be.
    On the basis of these observations, Group B technology is inaccessible and will remain so even though it appears to represent an extremely evolved version of what we now possess. It requires too many resources and too large an industrial base. Even with help from Group B and a collection of working artifacts to examine, it could not be duplicated here. Group B has no reason to offer assistance; indeed, it is not in their interest to further our development.
    Group A is far more advanced than Group B. Its technology has an entirely different theoretical basis.
    The reasoning behind it is conceptually alien to ours, but if we could master these ideas we could acquire the technology. Obviously we cannot acquire in a few years or a few hundred years what an alien species has developed over millennia, but we can potentially manage an enormous advance over our current level of development. Under the right circumstances Group A will be willing to help us.

There appears to be general agreement among alien species that technology can be organized in Tiers.
Tier 1 is the lowest tier; it is the ability to make a tool. A tool is defined as a piece of technology whose
performance is not the product of the materials of which it is made. Everything modern civilization has
achieved so far, including nuclear weapons and genetically modified organisms, can be seen as exploiting
what occurs naturally in the environment. As such it is considered rudimentary and is not evidence of
intelligence. To be recognized as intelligent, human beings need to make a tool. An over-unity alternative
energy device may qualify. Possible states technology, if successfully developed, would qualify. We
would not need to transform our industry; a single demonstration would be enough.
When human beings arrive at Tier 1, context will then exist to explain Tier 2. A short video in the
authorÑs collection shows what is likely to be an example of Tier 2 technology. In Penetration [7] Ingo
Swann describes an encounter with an object that is a good candidate for Tier 3.
Not having yet made a tool, human beings are at Tier 0. It is probable that human beings can progress
faster than the colonizers once our collectives become intelligent. At Tier 2 we would be the technological
equals of the colonizers. At Tier 3 we will be able to evict them from our home world. By then we will
have long since traveled to other star systems and met those who will be then, our peers.

  1. Strategic Options
    The policy of firing on all UFOs is obviously counterproductive and dangerous. Group A and B
    technologies are sufficiently different for their craft to exhibit different electromagnetic signatures. It
    should be possible to tell them apart. Group A should never be fired upon, nor should any objects whose ownership is unclear.
    If this assessment is accurate, we should try to prevent the colonizers from becoming fully invested
    here. We must do that without going to war. The colonizers are vulnerable to a discreetly conducted war of attrition: enough to deplete their resources, but not enough to pose a survival challenge. What is needed is for their losses to appear as the uncoordinated acts of unintelligent animals. Since Group B believes that humans are not intelligent it should be possible to accomplish this.
    To succeed, the effort will need to be decentralized. Centralized planning will be readily detectable by Group B, who will then destroy the command center. (The command center has a unique feature:
    destroying it will stop the war of attrition. Group B has the ability to make that observation.)
    After enough losses are experienced to impact the mission, the local management of Group B will
    contact us. At that point we may be able to negotiate some ground rules. Group B will keep their word only as long as the consequences of not doing so are severe. At present they have more to fear from their superiors than from us. It is that circumstance that gives us potential leverage.
    Group B is capable of complex strategic deception. At present they see no need to engage in strategic deception against the human species. It will be hard for humans to give up the idea that they can befriend or bribe Group B. This author believes that any attempts to do that will be interpreted as a sign of weakness. It is the habit of Group B to advance against weakness.
    It should be borne in mind that Group B considers themselves enormously superior to humans in every way. That will not change. The Supercollider was not built in Texas on account of fire ants, but ants and humans did not become strategic partners. Through attrition, fire ants won control of some territory. The human belief in their innate superiority to fire ants is unchanged. An ant-human alliance is not contemplated. This is an exact parallel.
    Group B may be impossible to dislodge, but their expansion could be slowed. In the meantime, perhaps humans can learn to make a tool. If we succeed, it will change the exopolitics in our favor. Other species are unhappy with the arrival of the colonizers in our region. If they knew that Earth was home to an intelligent species that could potentially impede Group BÑs colonial expansion, we might receive some technological support and perhaps other forms of help.Conclusion
    In the beginning the colonizers had an advantage. Their system contained another habitable planet.
    They developed space travel and reached it. By that time they had exploited their home world almost to extinction. We grieve over the industrial abuse of the Earth; by their standards it is virtually untouched.
    Where they have passed, a planet resembles Venus with its horrible atmosphere, vast open-pit mines and dying ecosystem.
    It is conceivable that the Earth will escape that fate. The real treasure of this planet is its biological
    abundance. Most intelligent life forms resembling ourselves have to make do with the equivalent of arctic tundra or the Mongolian steppes. The author has given at least cursory attention to perhaps thirty species;
    not one has a home world that contains the rich variety of life found in the tropics. Considering the
    experiments being performed by the colonizers and the contents of their database, it appears likely that the biological wealth of the Earth is a primary attraction. Earth is a unique source of rare biological essences.
    In the larger scheme of things they are much more valuable than our minerals.
    Imagine what it would have meant to humanity to have another habitable world almost within armÑs reach. It is possible that a previous civilization had that benefit. The traces of ancient civilization on Mars are telling, as is the evidence that it came to a sudden end, either through warfare or a close encounter with a celestial object. The civilization that produced the Egyptian pyramids (which were already ancient in the time of the Pharaohs) may once have spanned two worlds.
    The galaxy, and surely the universe, is teeming with life and much of it is intelligent. The intelligent
    species arise in a wide variety of environments, but the ones observed so far all have one thing in
    common: they are collective intelligences. The conclusion is inescapable: in order to compete for a place in the galaxy, human beings must also learn to combine their mental efforts into intelligent collectives.

The Transcript of the video.

Each of our bodies possesses a detailed map. If well utilized, this map acts as an internal compass that guides us on our journey.
It is called the Bodygraph and is the foundation of Human Design, a system that combines
ancient knowledge and modern science to reveal who we are at our core.
The Bodygraph is unique to each person and is generated from precise birth information:
date,
time,
and place.


The result shows each person’s talents, challenges, and life mission.
It helps you understand how you function, how you relate to the world, and what your role in the universe is.
Human Design is based on astrology, I Ching, Kabbalah, and chakras, extracting the best of each stream to arrive at a complete result that reveals the true purpose of each person in this world.
Let’s understand exactly how Human Design works and how to apply it to have a fuller life
aligned with our Karma and Dharma.


Each of us came to this world for a reason. We need to be attentive to the universe’s signs
to understand and put our role in this existence into practice.
Human Design are based on four pillars that mix different and complementary knowledge:
Astrology, which takes into account the influence of planets at the time of birth and reveals aspects of each person’s personality and destiny.
The I Ching; An ancient Chinese system that offers insights into behavior patterns and ways to deal with life’s challenges.
The Jewish Kabbalah; A mystical wisdom that brings a deep understanding of each person’s energy and potential.
And, finally, the Chakras. The energy centers of the physical and spiritual body reveal how you relate to the world and yourself.
The backbone of Human Design is formed by three elements: Imagine the Centers as cities on a map, each with its own culture and function, from energy production to decision-making.
The Channels, then, are the roads that connect these cities, allowing the circulation of energy
and information between them, essential for the harmonious functioning of the whole.
The Gates are like the entry and exit points of these roads, guarding the secrets of our talents,
challenges, and the potential for personal transformation.
The position of the planets and celestial bodies at the time of birth determines which Gates will be activated in the Bodygraph.


The numbers of the activated Gates reveal which Centers will be defined, that is, energetically active, or undefined, or open to influence.


When two Gates at opposite ends of a Channel are activated, the Channel is considered defined, connecting the Centers on both sides and impacting the way energy flows through your design.
The technical explanation might seem confusing at first glance, but in practice, it is much simpler than it appears.
Essentially, the date of birth provides a snapshot of the sky at the exact moment of birth,
capturing the celestial positions that are essential.


The time and place of birth allow for an accurate calculation of the Ascendant and other important positions, which directly influence which Gates and, consequently, which Channels and Centers are activated.
The Centers in the Bodygraph represent the nine fundamental areas of our energy and consciousness.
They can be defined or undefined, indicating where we have consistency in our lives and where we are more open to the influence of the environment and the people around us.
Defined Centers provide stable strengths and characteristics, while undefined Centers
are areas of potential learning and growth, revealing where we may be more susceptible
to external conditioning.
Channels are the connections between the Centers, forming the structure through
which our energy flows.


They are defined by the presence of specific Gates at each end of the Channel, activated by the planets at the time of birth. Defined Channels in our energy chart indicate our innate talents and personality traits,
while the absence of defined Channels points to where we can seek harmony and balance through interactions with others.
Gates, derived from the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching, are the access points to our internal design.
Each Gate carries a specific energy and theme that further details our character and destiny.
The activation of particular Gates in our Bodygraph illuminates areas of potential, wisdom,
and even challenges we face, guiding us to understand better how we can express our unique gifts and navigate life’s obstacles.
It is through the Gates, Channels, and Centers that it’s possible to discover each person’s type.
Each type is a kind of personality and shows how each person is designed to interact with the world.
Manifestors are the pioneers, making up about 8% of people.
They have the innate ability to initiate actions and only need to inform others about their intentions to reduce obstacles.
This allows them to lead and innovate without hindrance.
Generators are the backbone of society, the majority of people, who shine when they find work and projects that truly resonate with their passions.
They must wait for situations that evoke a genuine internal response to act, thus ensuring that their actions are always rewarding.
Projectors are the strategists, representing 20% of the population, with a special gift for understanding people and systems.
They thrive when recognized and invited to contribute, finding satisfaction in guiding
and advising when their insight is valued.
Reflectors are the rare mirrors of society, with just 1%, reflecting the environment around them.
They make better decisions after a lunar cycle, allowing for a complete reflection
of the influences surrounding them.
This waiting helps them make choices that are in harmony with the larger environment.
In Human Design, knowing your type is key to success.
This discovery helps you understand yourself better and achieve your goals.
By understanding and using the characteristics of your type, you live more authentically
and realize your dreams.
This makes you grow as a person and have better relations with the world around you,
leading to a happier and more complete life.
Let’s explore how each type can use their unique characteristics to flourish and fulfill their purpose.
Have the innate ability to initiate and create.
They shine when acting independently but must learn to communicate their visions and intentions to minimize resistance from others.
The practice of transparency allows their initiatives to flow without obstacles, empowering them to lead effectively and inspire significant changes.
Possess an inexhaustible source of vital energy, which, when aligned with true passions, leads to deep satisfaction.
They are most fulfilled when waiting for situations that spark a genuine response, dedicating themselves fully to these opportunities.
This commitment to what truly resonates allows Generators to be productive and accomplished, becoming sources of inspiration for others.
Achieve success and satisfaction when they are recognized and invited to contribute.
Gifted with a sharp understanding of others and systems, they maximize their impact
by sharing their wisdom when valued.
Cultivating patience and appreciating their own worth is essential for Projectors to find their place as respected leaders and advisors.
Possessing the capacity to mirror the surrounding community and environment, require time to deliberate and make decisions.
Allowing for a full lunar cycle of reflection enables them to absorb and process the various influences, ultimately leading to choices that align with their authentic self.
This period of contemplation is essential, as it allows Reflectors to make decisions that are genuine and true to their nature.
Human Design reveals that the key to healthy and rewarding relationships lies in understanding and respecting each individual’s intrinsic differences.
By recognizing that each person has a unique energetic configuration, with their own talents,
challenges, and life missions, we begin to appreciate the beauty of diversity in human interactions.
It invites us to celebrate our individuality and that of others, recognizing that it is at the intersection of our differences where the true magic of relationships reveals itself.
By applying the insights of Human Design, we become more aware of how our energies
affect the people around us and vice versa.
This awareness helps us create spaces of mutual understanding where differences are opportunities for growth and mutual enrichment.
