In Section 5 of the GLOBAL RISKS 2013 “Executive Summary” for the 2013 World Economic Forum one of the five "X” Factors (thought in conjunction with Nature Magazine) and being presented this year is the “Discovery of Alien Life: Proof of life elsewhere in the universe could have profound psychological implications for human belief systems.”
As one of the “X Factors from Nature” the discovery of alien life is considered one of “five emerging game-changers” beyond the (more typical) landscape of 50 global risks. It is also considered as a way to “alert decision-makers.”
The other “X factors from Nature” considered for 2013 are:
Runaway Climate Change
Significant Cognitive Enhancement (through artificial means)
Rogue Deployment of Geoengineering (technology to manipulate climate)
Costs of Living Longer (old age costs of living longer due to medical advances).
Commentary: "Climate Change" is connected with alleged extraterrestrial messages. "Cognitive Enhancement" makes you think of higher intelligence through technology, an issue that already sounds quite sci-fy and ET-related. "Rogue Deployment of Geoengineering" could at least in part be associated with scalar interferometry, HAARP and other such exotic (perhaps ET-related) ideas and technologies. Only "Costs of Living Longer" seems to be a more normal economic concern.
Questions: 1) Does someone "in the know" (and pulling the strings) know that there may be an impending disclosure perhaps to be initiated by an ET alliance or (while attempting to give it a spin before it gets out of hand) to be initiated by one or more governments? Russia comes to mind after Prime Minister Medvedev unique declarations a few weeks ago.
2) Are we simply talking about a bolder, creative and imaginative approach this year or is someone trying to induce "la creme de la creme" world leaders to start thinking with more awareness about the extraterrestrial presence?
3) Will exopoliticians be called into action and exopolitics itself take off a serious discipline if ET presence disclosures actually "come to the fore?"
