“There are periods in the life of humanity, which generally coincide with the beginning of the fall of cultures and civilizations, when the masses irretrievably lose their reason and begin to destroy everything that has been created by centuries and millenniums of culture. Such periods of mass madness, often coinciding with geological cataclysms, climatic changes, and similar phenomena of a planetary character, release a very great quantity of the matter of knowledge (ancient Higher, ‘knowledge-of-being’ ed). This, in its turn, necessitates the work of collecting this matter of knowledge which would otherwise be lost. Thus the work of collecting scattered matter of knowledge frequently coincides with the beginning of the destruction and fall of cultures and civilizations.
“This aspect of the question is clear. The crowd neither wants nor seeks knowledge, and the leaders of the crowd, in their own interests, try to strengthen its fear and dislike of everything new and unknown. The slavery in which mankind lives is based upon this fear. It is even difficult to imagine all the horror of this slavery. We do not understand what people are losing. But in order to understand the cause of this slavery it is enough to see how people live, what constitutes the aim of their existence, the object of their desires, passions, and aspirations, of what they think, of what they talk, what they serve and what they worship.” G.I.Gurdjieff (as quoted by P.D.Ouspensky in, In Search of the Miraculous) click here for full quote.
Millions of people world-wide since approximately 1960* have been ‘contacted’ by, or interfaced with, an extraterrestrial positive intelligence. For the vast majority this contact is subconscious and of an informational nature- the information pertained to the coming (now here) planetary crisis. We were warned.
Much of the progress in awareness of our environment, the biosphere, conservation and so on, sparked by socially dynamic leaders in various areas, was born from the interaction with a Higher intelligence or consciousness.
However, the truth is that the present dominant planetary civilization will not survive. Like all the many civilizations before, it shall fall either due to its own paradigm or through the inevitable perturbations brought on by chance forces of a cosmological nature. Look to our own past for an insight into what we face, and see Mars perhaps as our future- all life extinguished.
Left to our own devices the ‘end’ will not be in the twinkling of an eye- there will be survivers, the remnant scattered over the surface of the planet, and perhaps even groups of visionaries who had prepared for what was to come. Some large parts of the earth may be spared initially and even become ‘politically’ dominant- they may become the centre of the hope of the peoples of the world desperate to ‘migrate’ to safe havens. It is probable that these centres will be in what we now call the ‘developing world’.
It is my ‘feeling’ that the Higher intelligences who have been watching over us will only openly interact with ‘Us’ after the ‘fall’ so to speak-they will not interfere now, they will not align themselves with any political power now, they will not save our civilization. They cannot. They warned Us many decades ago and we declined to listen. But it is not petulance which holds their hand, it is intelligence and understanding. They can aid but they cannot design or decide our future- that is for us. So for the time being we are ‘alone’ with our fate. At any rate we would make war with them in our usual paranoid fashion if they descended now.
So, there are millions (perhaps billions- i do not know the numbers) who have been ‘contacted’ in one way or another and all are ‘cherished’ shall we say, ‘loved’ by our friends on high- the type of love based on love-of-consciousness, something we know very little about. If I am allowed to relate through my own experience then I would say that I am assured of Their love of me and us- of their goodwill, of their incomprehensible-to-me work to help us evolve and survive. Who is ‘Us’ though is a question that I have no answer for, also Why ‘US’.
My earthly perspective at present is that there is absolutely no hope in any of the ‘plans’ designed to, for example, save the planet (read ‘us’) from global warming- our whole paradigm is against this- the capatilist, market driven, expanding cunsumption paradigm, the power paradigm, the nation state paradigm, the progress paradigm…there are so many fronts that need to be tended that the ‘fire’ we face is simply too big a monster to contain. Maybe it was a mistake to invent the wheel and everything else has inevitably, inexorably, followed from that.
My advice to all- is to stop procreating for the next twenty five or even fifty years. With what we know now we are only condemning more and more human life to the coming maelstrom, and only making it worse and worse.
In my country we have zero population growth- but we still have too many people for this ecosystem to support. We have known this for many many years- instead of redefining we have destroyed our river systems which in this land at present, is the only means of life support we have and yet we still dither though we live with the evidence facing us everyday of our existence. We are a stupid species- or at least the way we organize ourselves is. We could have learnt from all the ancient ones, how to live in balance- from the bees, the ants, the whales – or even …but no, ‘we’ wanted to control, ‘we’ wanted more and more and more and more. The ‘we’ being of course those who have ruled- the rest of us have always been slaves to the ‘system’.
And now we are about to step into the new age of ‘war on global warming’- all the crazy do-gooders are coming out with all their plans, their fantasies- but at the basis of it all is still the same paradigm- how to make ‘money’ out of human slavery/consumption.
The real truth is that we are half way into the ‘end’ already- the west in its blindness sees only what is happening to it but the other world has been dealing with the ‘problem’ for a lot longer and as we can see there is major meltdown into barbarism all over the place, and the west too will follow in due course- unless of course you count the last one hundred years worth of butchery as barbarism and a symptom of the underlying paradigm in which case you might, like me, see that there is absolutely no future for it.
As for me, I don’t care. I, like everyone else presently breathing on this planet will Die relatively soon. What do I care for the civilization that I have seen reign in a bloodbath of global proportions? What do I care if there are no more hollywood movies made, or books written, or skyscrapers built, or fashions designed, or art made or WAR, all the other worthless meaninglessnesses which have indulged the passions of the species for so long?
All I care for is that MY children survive and make contact with something Higher than this awful awful mess we have built for them. I will stay in the ‘upper airs’ to guide them towards this (hubris? imagination?), but once they make it, we are outa here for good, with no looking back.
* This is my estimation though there were obviously many others before this date.
