From the Editor: The Way Forward from Here


earth_starOPEN YOUR MIND for a second and consider this: What if science can not only prove the existence of extraterrestrial visits to planet Earth, but reproduce advanced, anti-gravity technology that can make it possible to travel faster than light and replace all fossil fuels and nuclear power with energy from the sun?

The implications of such far-flung ideas are just too staggering to consider. Brand it as science fiction. Laugh at the crazies. Ask them if they have a one-way ticket to the loony bin. And by the way, take that little, green, blow-up alien with antennas with you.

It’s second nature for us to quickly discount what we’ve been led to believe is impossible. Aliens and E.T. are part of our culture of fiction. The 20th anniversary of the first episode of “The X-Files” is upon us on September 10, and on some screen somewhere, Fox Mulder is still trying to find proof of the existence of aliens, and Dana Scully is trying to bring her partner back to reality.

And meanwhile, grown men who’ve led military platoons and held high public office are just now settling down after five long days of testimony in front of six former members of Congress on the very topic of extraterrestrial presence on Earth.

Real story.

More than forty witnesses from nearly a dozen nations recently spoke at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. — and all they were asking was for our government to admit that extraterrestrial presence is real.

Dr. Steven Greer, founder of the movement calling for such disclosure, nearly broke down in tears at an evening lecture when he considered the bleak future for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who face certain global catastrophe without a clean energy solution. The saddest thing, he said, was that private defense and technology corporations — the so-called military industrial complex — reportedly have this technology and are keeping it from us, including the president and others high in government, in this time of need.

We haven’t even discussed one of the edgiest of theories: that the advanced beings making contact with us are “us” returning from the future.

What are we to make of all of this?

We could go back to sleep and keep all things alien in the realm of science fiction.

We could look with interest at Dr. Greer’s projects — mobilizing groups of people around the world to communicate with extraterrestrials through consciousness research and technology, and organizing efforts to bypass the government to create free energy technology for the people — and wonder if the power of the people truly can withstand the force of corporations that will do anything and everything to maintain control.

The “us-versus-them” scenarios may be interesting, whether it’s humanity versus aliens or people versus the power structure, but either way, if we seek such drama, we will find it.

Our planet is just a single speck of light reflecting one of an infinite number of stars in the cosmos. We are not alone — and we never have been. In fact, we are just time travelers ourselves, wearing our space suits called bodies until we jettison away from them and return to Source.

Someone once said that we are the ones we are waiting for. What we can do is show up, be present and open our hearts to all life — regardless of which planet it calls home. Our evolution will move from global to galactic.

  1. Tim, here is what I am going to share with you, in reference to your editorial. The energy of the aliens and the energy of human’s as a physical form where created separately about, as time could be measured, if it was capable of being measured…..between 2 to 8 billions years different. The human body is the result of a multitude of other physical forms of which and from which understands were realized. So to some degree every human is an aspect of an alien energy and life form. With more than 38 different physical humanoid life forms that clarity and understanding was learned from, it is not surprising for there to be an energy connection going both ways. Evolution is a very slow moving process. The process of growth and development is not an instant process. We witness that here on Earth everyday!!

    Your opening statement was “OPEN YOUR MIND!” The reality is Tim, the mind energy is a limited energy. It is not capable of understanding what is expansively mind…boggling!! All mind energy is not the same! The “Mind” is both expansive and counter-actively limited in the same moment. Why do somethings make so much sense and other things are just confusing? It is the MIND!! The MIND is an energy of the duality experience!! The pendulum swinging! The more you know, the more you realize you don’t know. The less you know, the less you have a desire to know!

    How come some scientists understand science so well, but cannot figure out how to relate to other people hardly at all. Is is the “The “us-versus-them” scenario?” or Self understanding Self and/or Self confusing Self? If we are the one’s we have been waiting for, then why don’t we recognize our Self? If the Universe is truly strange and bizarre, then how strange and bizarre can it be? Can the mind comprehend it? Or is the mind the limitation that sees the strange and bizarre for the opportunity to question and learn from a place of limitation?

    Why is it some people whom are blind, can see what others whom are not blind cannot see? Now how many ways can this statement be understood? 5 different ways! Which way did you see it? If you do not see all 5, open your mind, and then tell me if it really is possible and if it really did make a difference!! If you have 5 physical senses, are you not blind and but also can see with all 5? How many ways do we see? How many ways are we blind? Is the mind limited by the senses? What is beyond the MIND?

    Great subject….Thank You!!
