Duke Brickhouse is a former trial lawyer and entertainment attorney who has refocused his life’s work to exposing the truth of our subjugated planet and to help raise humanity’s collective consciousness at this crucial moment in our planet’s history, in order to break out of the dark and negative false reality that is preventing the natural development of our species, to put our planet on a path of love, light and harmony in preparation for our species’ ascension to a fourth density, and to ultimately take our rightful place in the galactic community.

Interstellar Travel and Biosphere Reboots Means There Are a Lot of Aliens in the Galaxy

• Based upon the average lifespan of a typical galactic civilization, and the notion that civilizations come, go, and reappear within the same star systems, aerospace engineer Robert Zubrin (pictured above) calculates that the number of technologically advanced civilizations in our galaxy (ie: at least as advanced as we are) greatly exceeds the 3,500 calculated by Frank Drake in 1961 known as “Drake’s Equation”.

• Among the 400 billion stars comprising the Milky Way galaxy, Zubrin estimates the number of technological civilizations to be 5 million. Also, the nearest civilization is probably about 185 light years away.

 

In 1961, radio astronomer Frank Drake developed a pedagogy for analyzing the question of the frequency of extraterrestrial civilizations. Robert Zubrin shows a couple of significant mistaken assumptions by Drake. Robert Zubrin wrote this for Centauri Dreams.

Drake equation defines a “civilization” as a species possessing interstellar communication capability. This means radiotelescopes. By this definition, civilization did not appear on Earth until the 1930s. Although, Earth does not really have the means to usefully broadcast and had limited means to interpret interstellar radio communications. Also, we may need to look at laser or other forms of interstellar communication.

L is the average lifetime of a technological civilization.
N/L, is the rate at which such civilizations are disappearing from the galaxy.
R∗, the rate of star formation in our galaxy;
fp, the fraction of these stars that have planetary systems;
ne, is the mean number of planets in each system that have environments favorable to life;
fl the fraction of these that actually developed life;
fi the fraction of these that evolved intelligent species; and
fc the fraction of intelligent species that developed sufficient technology for interstellar communication

If we estimate L=50,000 years (ten times recorded history), R∗ = 10 stars per year, fp = 0.5, and each of the other four factors ne, fl, fi, and fc equal to 0.2, we calculate the total number of technological civilizations in our galaxy, N, equals 400.

Four-hundred civilizations in our galaxy may seem like a lot, but scattered among the Milky Way’s 400 billion stars, they would represent a very tiny fraction: just one in a billion to be precise. In our own region of the galaxy, (known) stars occur with a density of about one in every 320 cubic light years. If the calculation in the previous paragraph were correct, it would therefore indicate that the nearest extraterrestrial civilization is likely to be about 4,300 light years away.

The Drake equation is wrong. The equation assumes that life, intelligence, and civilization can only evolve in a given solar system once. This is manifestly untrue. Stars evolve on time scales of billions of years, species over millions of years, and civilizations take mere thousands of years.

Current human civilization could knock itself out with a thermonuclear war, but unless humanity drove itself into complete extinction, there is little doubt that 1,000 years later global civilization would be fully reestablished. An asteroidal impact on the scale of the K-T event that eliminated the dinosaurs might well wipe out humanity completely. But 5 million years after the K-T impact the biosphere had fully recovered and was sporting the early Cenozoic’s promising array of novel mammals, birds, and reptiles.

Similarly, 5 million years after a K-T class event drove humanity and most of the other land species to extinction, the world would be repopulated with new species, including probably many types of advanced mammals descended from current nocturnal or aquatic varieties.
Estimating the Galactic Population

There are 400 billion stars in our galaxy, and about 10 percent of them are good G and K type stars which are not part of multiple stellar systems. Almost all of these probably have planets, and it’s a fair guess that 10 percent of these planetary systems feature a world with an active biosphere, probably half of which have been living and evolving for as long as the Earth. That leaves us with two billion active, well-developed biospheres filled with complex plants and animals, capable of generating technological species on time scales of somewhere between 10 and 40 million years. As a middle value, let’s choose 20 million years as the “regeneration time” tr.

Using average lifespan technological civilization at 50,000 years then there are probably 5 million technological civilizations active in the galaxy right now and the nearest civilization is probably about 185 light years away.

Testimony Claims Nixon Hid Proof of ET in White House Time Capsule

by Paul Seaburn            February 16, 2018                (mysteriousuniverse.org)

• This article highlights a video interview of Robert Merritt by “Dark Journalist” Daniel Liszt. In the 1970’s, Merritt was the sleazy guy that politicians and alphabet agencies – and even Richard Nixon – would go to when they needed to instigate a smear campaign against a political rival or faction.

• Merritt says he met with President Nixon three times in a deep underground location beneath the White House. In the first meeting, Nixon read him a letter stating that U.S. was protecting an extraterrestrial being at Los Alamos and that scientists were able to obtain “advanced technology and science” from the being. Nixon then sealed the letter in a “time capsule” that he hid somewhere in the White House.

• In another meeting, Merritt says Nixon taped a copy of the letter to Merritt’s stomach and told him to deliver it to National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger and not to tell anyone about it. Merritt says co-author Douglas Caddy has recently notified the National Archive that Nixon’s so-called time capsule is still in the White House and that Caddy will reveal the location if the National Archive will agree to publicly divulge the letter.

• Merritt was also a key witness in the Watergate scandal, as told in his book, ‘Watergate Exposed: A Confidential Informant Tells How The Burglars Were Set Up and Reveals Other Government Dirty Tricks, by Robert Merritt, As Told To Douglas Caddy, Original Attorney for the Watergate Seven’. Merritt was an informant for the White House’s “Huston Plan” – a 43-page plan by Nixon aide Tom Charles Huston in 1970 which outlined how the White House would use domestic burglary, illegal electronic surveillance, and opening the mail of “left-wing radicals” and “anti-war protesters” to find cause to arrest and detain them. During this operation, Merritt overheard a discussion of the Watergate break-in while illegally tapping a phone call.

• Below is a 3:05 minute introductory video, and a 1:14:41 minute video of the full interview.

 

As someone with an interest in history, politics, conspiracy theories and the possible existence of alien life and extraterrestrial contact with humans, this headline and follow-up was guaranteed to catch my eye: “Nixon time capsule will reveal the existence of extraterrestrials. A Huston Plan Informer revealed that President Nixon hid a time capsule in the White House that contains an explosive spreading about ETs / UFOs.”

The link in the post pointed to an episode of “Dark Journalist”, a video series by Daniel Liszt, an independent reporter, filmmaker and the “Dark Journalist.” According to the write up, Liszt interviews Robert Merritt, whose connection to Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal is told in “Watergate Exposed: A Confidential Informant Tells How The Burglars Were Set Up and Reveals Other Government Dirty Tricks, by Robert Merritt, As Told To Douglas Caddy, Original Attorney for the Watergate Seven.” In previous interviews, Merritt has said that he had learned about plans for the break-in from James Reed, a.k.a. Rita Reed, a drag queen who worked on the switchboard at the Columbia Plaza Apartments, just blocks from the Watergate Hotel, where he overheard the planned break-in being discussed while secretly listening in on a telephone conversation. Merritt apparently made this contact as an informant for the Huston Plan.

The Huston Plan referred to was a 43-page report of proposed security operations put together by White House aide Tom Charles Huston in 1970 at the request of President Richard Nixon, who wanted more control over domestic intelligence on so-called left-wing radicals and the anti-war movement. During the 1973 Watergate hearings, the Huston Plan was revealed to have called for domestic burglary, illegal electronic surveillance, the opening the mail of domestic “radicals” and the creation of camps in Western states where anti-war protesters would be detained.

As a side note, Saturday Night Live parodied the Huston Plan in a second season episode (1977) hosted by actor Broderick Crawford, who had starred in the movie All the King’s Men as the ambitious and ruthless politician, Willie Stark. The Watergate scandal and exposure eventually became a book and movie called All the President’s Men. Coincidences?

Where were we? Oh, yeah, the time capsule. In what appears to be a startling new twist, Merritt reveals to Liszt that he met three times with President Nixon in a “deep underground location beneath the White House. In the first, Nixon read him a letter stating that U.S. was protecting an extraterrestrial being and that scientists at Los Alamos were able to communicate with it and obtain “advanced technology and science.” Nixon then sealed the letter in a “time capsule” that he hid somewhere in the White House.

Are You A “Starseed”? Here Are Some Common Characteristics That Might Answer Your Question

by Kalee Brown            February 15, 2018             (collective-evolution.com)

• The universe is vast. The Earth alone holds 8.7 million different species. For every grain of sand on every beach on Earth there are 10,000 stars each carrying its own planetary system. The Milky Way holds billions of Earth-like planets. And there are billions of galaxies. We may even be living in an infinitely-increasing number of universes, or ‘multiverse’.

• We are all souls living in human bodies that come to Earth for a specific reason or to gain experience and knowledge. We’ve reincarnated hundreds of times into different physical bodies. Some of us are native humans, some are extraterrestrials desiring a human experience.

• Starseeds are souls that are not native to planet Earth, but benevolent extraterrestrials who come here to help bring awareness and positive change to humanity. The number of Starseeds born on Earth has been increasing in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

• How do you know if you are a Starseed? Well, you don’t necessarily fit in with the rest of the crowd. You don’t have much in common with other family members. You question authority and reject the economic system and educational system. You can sense other people’s feelings and energies – both good and bad. You tend to express yourself creatively.

• So many issues are now surfacing and challenging humanity. The light of truth is exposing the massive corporate and government corruption that foments perpetual war. It is said that Starseeds have come to planet Earth in order to help shift humanity toward a higher level of consciousness. As a result, more and more people are now increasing their awareness and helping to bring about this massive shift in consciousness.

 

Planet Earth houses an estimated 8.7 million different species, with approximately 6.5 million living on land and 2.7 million in the oceans. We have an abundance of different animals and fish living all over this big blue sphere, and when you really stop and think about the vastness of this planet, it’s pretty amazing.

Keep in mind, this is only one planet; a tiny spec within this giant thing we call the multiverse. We know that 8.7 million different species live on our planet alone, so how many actually live out there?
It’s a puzzling question, and sobering, too. Even if just one more planet in the universe held the same diversity of life, that would represent a further 8.7 million species to discover. And if one more planet has life, it’s reasonable to assume others would as well.

To boggle your mind even further, let’s review just how small we are in comparison to the universe: For every grain of sand on every beach on Earth there are 10,000 stars, and the Milky Way includes billions of Earth-like, potentially habitable planets. The Milky Way itself is only one of billions of galaxies, and we may be living in an infinitely-increasing number of universes, otherwise known as the multiverse.

Keeping the infinite and incomprehensible size of the multiverse in mind, let’s focus our gaze within for a moment. We are all souls living in these human bodies, and we came here to gain experience and knowledge. Your soul has chosen to incarnate or reincarnate into your human existence right now, but what was it doing beforehand?

Were you living on Earth? Perhaps you’ve lived hundreds of lives, continuously reincarnating again and again onto this planet. Or were you a different species, one that we’d consider extraterrestrial? Or maybe, could this be your first time ever incarnating onto Earth?

Many of us feel there’s more that meets the eye when considering those 8.7 million species living on Earth. What if, within these shells, many of our souls are actually all from different species ourselves?

If you’ve always sort of felt like you’re not really “human,” that you don’t necessarily fit in with the rest of the crowd, then welcome. Take a seat, and know that you’re not alone. Many people who feel this way refer to themselves as Starseeds; they’re simply souls that are not native to planet Earth.
Are You a Starseed?

So, you now know what the concept “Starseed” means: a soul that is not originally from planet Earth. The real question here is, what exactly does that mean to you? Does this concept resonate with you, do you feel like Earth truly is your original home, or do you feel like it’s just some made-up term to justify not fitting in? I encourage you to read the rest of this article, and ask yourself those questions as you read it.
