James Deardorff

Dr. James.W. Deardorff, a Professor Emeritus of Atmospheric Science published “Possible Extraterrestrial Strategy for Earth” in the Royal Astronomical Society, Quarterly Journal (ISSN 0035-8738), vol. 27, March 1986, p. 94-101.  Its online link is found at http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1986QJRAS..27…94D

Dr. Deardorff’s Summary in “Possible Extraterrestrial Strategy for Earth” reads as follows:

“The arguments are reviewed which hold that our Galaxy is nearly saturated with extraterrestrial life forms, that our existence requires in hindsight that they were and are benevolent toward us, and that our lack of detection of them or communications from them implies that an embargo is established against us to prevent any premature knowledge of them. An inconsistency is detected, in that any sudden lifting of the embargo in a manner obvious to the public would cause societal chaos and possibly touch off a nuclear exchange, while any communications received via radio telescope would likely be either quickly confiscated by government agencies and not revealed to the public, or heavily censored. The inconsistency is that the advanced civilization should be expected to have planned some other strategy, if it is actually benevolent, experienced and intelligent.

It follows that any embargo not involving alien force must be a leaky one designed to allow gradual disclosure of the alien message and its gradual acceptance on the part of the general public over a very long time-scale. A possible strategy for their accomplishing is proposed.”


Dr. Deardorff should be considered a pioneer in exopolitical thinking. As he suggests, advanced extraterrestrial intelligence may abound in the galaxy and UFO evidence suggests that it is quite reasonable to suppose that it is already here operating here on Earth. However, it would be operating under its own terms while using a technology that – under our prevailing understanding – would seem surreal or like “magic.” Dr. Deardorff also explores the idea that societies which develop practical interstellar ‘travel’ may have a tendency to overcome self-destructive behavior and would operate under a more comprehensive ethics respectful of less developed civilizations and that, for this reason, they might not be willing to unequivocally disclose their presence to humanity until we become capable of handling it.

If extraterrestrial life abounds in the galaxy (as it is becoming ever more probable under conventional astronomical research on exoplanets) and some of it is – relatively speaking – at least 100’s of years more technologically advanced than Earth’s humanity, these intelligent life forms may find ways to overcome spacetime limitations (including vast distances, inertia and energy constraints) in a way that would seem ‘magical’ and even ‘impossible’ to many of us. In fact, it would particularly seem way to ‘weird’ and ‘magical’ (and thus completely non-credible) to scientists required to operate with classical, scientifist, materialist, objective mindsets under a politically and socially controlled mainstream institutions expressing a culture that reflects a sense of superiority by distinguishing itself from previous magical and religious ways of ‘making sense’ of reality.

However, the best objective UFO and contactee evidence gathered from around the globe in over 7 decades (an evidence which can be segmented into various categories that reinforce each other) also scientifically and reasonably adds up and provides credence to some version of the “extraterrestrial hypothesis” and, to a sufficiently informed, intelligent, open-minded person, it also reasonably indicates the likelihood that one or more technologically advanced non-human intelligences are already here and, furthermore, perhaps interacting in various semi-covert ways with our planetary and societal systems.

If being able to achieve practical interstellar “travel” is accompanied by a TENDENCY to overcome intra-culture, destructive divisions, these extraterrestrial civilizations (or at least most of them) might be underscored in various degrees by a basically shared, post magical and post classical form of ethical thinking, perhaps essentially based on a practical emphasis on cooperation itself relying on the recognition of an intrinsic level of connectivity fundamental to the existence of physical reality whilst within and beyond it. Thus (perhaps after carefully monitoring our species and its social and psychological responses and after some initial attempts at open contact perhaps during the Eisenhower Administration and early “contactee era” in the 1950’s), in order not to destructively disrupt human society, they (one or more extraterrestrial groups) might generally have chosen to act under a “strategy” which could be called an “embargo strategy” or, more precisely, a “leaky embargo strategy.” They would try to avoid social disruption by gradually manifesting to various persons around the globe without doing it in unequivocal ways that cannot not be plausibly denied by prevailing scientists and other cultural leaders closely associated with effective political power.

The extraterrestrial intelligences enforcing this “embargo” would, nonetheless, also realize that humanity – as a complex living system and “holon” – has reached a threshold in which there’s a need to acknowledge the truth about its origins and position in the cosmic scheme of things in order to evolve into a unified planetary and cosmic civilization which understands itself as participating within an even grander and interrelated cosmic whole.

Perhaps amidst a divided world in which the UN only represented a forum for independent nation-states, as the leader of the most advanced nation-state on Earth President Eisenhower was – in the minds of extraterrestrial representatives – the most adequate person to establish formal contact with. Perhaps for them, his response would weigh heavily on what course of action to proceed.  Perhaps they recognized the need for worldwide education and disclosure but understood that the procedure would depend upon this President’s reply. Thus, maybe even after heeding to President Eisenhower’s alleged rejection of leading an educational, paradigm-shifting revelation of the ET presence inclusive of its operative cosmic principles, these ETs decided to continue “leaking” away their presence in a way that would still allow ruling cultural elites to deny, suppress or rationalize it while gradually cajoling the rest of society to acknowledge them.    

I posit that most or all extraterrestrials capable of overcoming spacetime limitations to practical, long distance interstellar ‘travel’ also enjoy a share, basic ethical understanding and way of thinking, feeling, being and acting which is today quietly arising on Earth in some quarters but which is still not prevalent. It is a step closer to unity and non-dual existence and may express in different forms. For instance, emphasizing a feeling-based, ethical perspective, it could be called a “fourth dimensional level of consciousness” as shared by contactee Sixto Paz Wells. It may also be associated with a higher cognitive capacity as a “5th, 6th (or higher) Order of Consciousness,” as Harvard developmental psychologist Robert Kegan proposes. A “trans systemic,” “multi systemic” or “complex” form of epistemological understanding should be required (“complex” meaning “interwoven” as proposed by French philosopher Edgar Morin). Some of these advanced thinkers emphasize the deep feeling of respect, love and interconnectivity associated with this level of sentient evolution but this level also provides other aspects such as the required meta theoretical or structural map, greater self-identity inclusivity and more inclusive ways of valuing. A humanity, civilization or species cohesive and respectful of its own members and correspondingly protective of its planetary base would have achieved the initial stage of this level of development.

Furthermore, accepting multiple realities, psychic powers and the extraterrestrial presence should also eventually be a crucial part of this so-called “Second Tier” level of development in consciousness or in the capacity for thinking, feeling, being, integrating and disclosing reality co-creatively as proposed by integrative and evolutionary philosopher Ken Wilber. Some individuals may be at ease with the feeling-based aspect or with the psychic, paranormal and extraterrestrial aspects but not with the intellectual aspects coming together in this level of development but, eventually, all of these aspects should be integrated in the human body-mind-spirit complex to wisely relate with our ET “visitors.”

Individuals operating under this (now largely segmented but steadily emerging) level of human development emphasized by these and other thinkers at the forefront of cultural awareness would also have to feel resonant with the non-physical valuing the crucial importance of the existence of multiple interactive realities. By comprising the importance of the psychic, the “paranormal,” the non-physical and the forthcoming universally recognized extraterrestrial presence (the latter unfolding under its own “transdimensional” (or trans-reality) terms we may be able to activate transdimensional technologies and practically overcome physical limitations and along with it the primitive mindset of intrinsic separation that goes with it. Again, promoting the psychic and otherworld as per human faculties and understanding may be quite necessary in order to function “transdimensionally” and to understand what our cosmic “visitors” are about and doing whether it doesn’t coincide with prevailing academic attitudes and expectations. We would need to be at ease with how the non-physical can be used to manipulate the physical. Perhaps non-physical “dimensions” overlap spacetime physical ones interiorly and a two-way exchange is possible. 

Dr. Deardorff’s “leaky embargo” hypothesis is probably connected with extraterrestrial disclosure exopolitician Stephen Bassett’s concept of a “truth embargo” quite likely performed and perpetuated under intelligence and counter-intelligence parameters by powerful (both non-constitutional and semi-constitutional) elements within (and associated to) the U.S. Government and in cahoots with a few other major world governments in association with military-industrial and specific secretive civilian power elites. This “truth embargo” would have occurred after an initial minor level of admittance or of ‘disclosure’ was allowed in tentative ways by a few government representatives in the 1940’s and 1950’s. The “leaky embargo” hypothesis allegedly conducted by extraterrestrials may also be associated with the idea of there being “secret government” factions amicable to a gradual disclosure or educational process through movies and other means (some of which may have been overtaken by the strategy to over-present extraterrestrials as hostile in order to prepare the public to eventually declare a false-flag invasion). This may be due to the fact that – at least since Eisenhower’s alleged first contact (in 1955 at Muroc/Edwards AFB) with a benevolent ET group not willing to hand out technology whilst proposing the suppression of nuclear explosions – there could be a coincidence or concordance between secret, gradual exopolitical disclosure policy (with a spin) and the extraterrestrials policy of gradually disclosing their own presence. This is indeed a complicated situation in which “those in the know” appear to operate perpetuating archaic, “us vs. them,” power-group-competing levels of consciousness.  

Dr. Deardorff’s “leaky embargo” hypothesis would also relate with disclosure and civilian contact activist extraordinaire Dr. Steven Greer and his strong position on the universal benevolence of all extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth. This would be given that in “Possible Extraterrestrial Strategy for Earth” Dr. Deardorff lends credence to C. Sagan and W.I. Newman’s idea that civilizations with a long history might have “impediments against cosmic imperialism and perhaps a Codex Galactica to educate the younger societies on how to behave. Moreover, Dr. Deardorff also echoes astronomer and cosmologist E.R Harrison’s idea that there might exist a “biogalactic law” wherein civilizations which are destructively aggressive tend (my emphasis) to wipe themselves out in the solar system of their birth and do not go on to colonize the galaxy.” However, in the latter case, the word “tend” is important because it is not used to allude to an unequivocal outcome. In other words, some advanced ET civilizations may have avoided self-destruction by strengthening an ethics of internal or intra-cultural, intra-societal coherence but nonetheless be possessed by an expansive nature or other influential elements from their own developmental history that lead them to attempt overtaking other planetary civilizations.

However in Dr. Deardorff’s article there’s a chapter titled “The Degree of Extraterrestrial Benevolence,” in which he highlights that, due to a huge number of civilizations and hugely varying degrees of evolution expected a “wide range of extraterrestrial benevolence should be expected.” He refers to the possibility that “some small fraction of the races in the Galaxy could well be considered hostile by us but be held in check by one or several more benevolent civilizations which for some reason have an interest in either the planet Earth or its inhabitants” and I tend to find this position reasonable. It doesn’t blindly over idealize the extraterrestrial presence or condemns it and quite favorably corresponds with some credible, previous and contemporary contactee messages such as those by Sixto Paz Wells and Ricardo Gonzalez. Moreover, it seems to also correspond well with some of the statistical findings in the four part survey conducted by the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research on Extraterrestrial Encounters (FREE) in that most of their ET encounters are (thus far by June 2016) not considered as “negative” by experiencer survey respondents. Additionally, the fact that – as far as we know – we have not been overtly invaded, enslaved, attacked or destroyed by an ET civilization could not only be due to the fact that most do not wish act like that but to the possibility that there might be a monitoring, policing and protective alliance preventing rogue extraterrestrial elements from doing it. 

If we consider valid the aforementioned “leaky embargo” hypothesis and also valid some of Dr. Michael E. Salla’s research on the various alleged secret space programs (based on alleged whistleblower testimony), it would seem that some of the extraterrestrial groups associated with at least some of these space program developments would resonate with a more classic form of dichotomous, conflicting and highly polarized human behavior. This would seem to contradict the expectation that beings capable of overcoming spacetime limitations would operate under a more inclusive form of consciousness, logic and ethics but, on the other hand, it might be that we are dealing with entities that sufficiently operate at that level by maintaining internal societal cohesion in a mental manner and still be able to operate transdimensionally to varying degrees by over-relying on consciousness-enhanced technology, even if some may have disconnected their feelings and other qualities also associated with higher levels of consciousness and development.

If – regarding some of the more recent whistleblower stories or, rather, I’d say…sagas – we are not dealing with a typical movie-like, American space age, male fantasy or with some sort of counter-intelligence disinformation combined with some genuine disclosures and/or leaks, some of the ETs would have supplied technology to covert human groups extending classical militaristic human behavior into a post classical space-age. This may or may not be true. There might be actual perceptions of truth talking past each other. I’m attempting to analyze many possibilities without a fixed mindset.

Parts of of the more incredible warring stories by alleged whistleblowers like Randi Cramer and Corey Goode may have been validated by other perhaps more credible whistleblowers like William Mills Tompkins and Clark Mc Clelland. If these reports represent facts (reports which include secret space programs from different human factions also conflicting with each other) at least some of the extraterrestrials associated with some or all of different secret space programs would also represent what has been known as a “service-to-self” mode of being and perhaps others would simply be limited to a level of evolution still too close to old-fashion warring human tendencies. The secret access to initial-level, transdimensional technologies would have linked us with low-level, conflicted ETs.


In spite of serious critics against the “negative ET hypothesis” like Dr. Steven Greer (doing a great job in many respects), the existence of negative ETs or what could be called “service-to-self” extraterrestrials is not only implied in sagas like the Mahabharata but also mentioned by several contactees like Sixto Paz Wells, Ricardo Gonzalez and, more recently by Alejandro Gonzalez and Erick Romero from Mexico. In such cases, these ETs would also be operating “transdimensionally” under a more inclusive form of science and logic, but their negativity would not impede them to do this. Moreover, according to several contact accounts, the logic by which even these extraterrestrials varieties operate force them to respect free will once they have not been able to cajole, deceive or paralyze in fear. 

If we are not simply anthropocentrically projecting all-to-human, war-like expectations on extraterrestrials, then at least some aspects of the alleged secret space programs would have attracted extraterrestrials groups with unresolved human-like problems. It could be an issue of “like attracts like.” Yet still, some other ET groups might have pressing needs such as physical, mental, and reproductive atrophies for which they may have taken upon themselves to utilize human resources obtaining some sort of permission or leniency in exchange for technology. In this latter category might be ET groups associated with President Eisenhower’s alleged 1955 second physical encounter at Holloman AFB after he had allegedly rejected in 1954 the educational offer given by a more service-to-others, benevolent extraterrestrial group of ambassadors. 

What to believe about the variety of interpretations regarding the ET presence? Recent experiencer-contactee polls suggest that MOST ET contacts are not regarded as “negative” by experiencer-contactees. As in many complex things in actual, practical experience, it may not be an issue of “either-or” but of “both-and.” There are many preferences, beliefs and positions within the ufological, experiencer, experiencer research, disclosure and exopolitical communities and we need to be careful not to offhandedly dismiss positions that – due to our own preferences – seem preposterous. Although some information might actually be wrong and some might be disinformation, we need to be able not to react offhandedly for or against these within the disclosure, UFO, exopolitics, experiencer and experiencer research communities. We need to be able to withhold judgment until we have reasonably sufficient information, especially if these explanations appear to conflict with ours. We must avoid becoming “compartmentalized” or “boxed-in” within our preferred interpretations about the whole phenomenon, ourselves unsuspectedly acting like the very closed-minded academics we often criticize for offhandedly dismissing conventional non-conventional ufological evidence and explanations.

ET groups seem to come with many inherent tendencies, needs and intentions. besides being able to function under a deeper understanding of connectivity, they may have overcome their own self-destructive, internal disagreements by various means like genetic engineering out strong emotions, becoming less individualistic or exerting telepathic social control. If we accept the often shared message that they are normally clearly divided into “service-to-self” (“dark” or spiritual energies-“stealing” or absorbing) and “service-to-others” (“luminous” or spiritually radiant) behavioral-existential modes while Earth humanity is unique in that it holds both polarities in an indeterminate manner, our leap forward may require us to demonstrate a way of transcending extreme polarization without losing spiritual-ethical sentiments or feelings and other subtle “heart-based” human qualities that many extraterrestrial civilizations seem to have lost in various degrees. 

Would extraterrestrials not amicable with the highest possible intentions for humanity still be able to come in and interact? Would some of them be acceptable while others possibly harmful? If there were a quarantine imposed on Earth, it may not apply to close-to-human-behavior, conflict-ridden, ET factions (and possible intra terrestrial associates) if they had already been active on Earth before the imposition of that quarantine. They would have a “right” to nonetheless interact with us, albeit with the provision that their actions do not exceed the boundaries that would prevent all other extraterrestrial forces from pursuing their goals. I understand that the last few paragraphs are plain exopolitical speculation but, nonetheless, it is based on the plausible information presented by research such as Dr. Salla’s, a research in which several whistleblower sources with various degrees of credibility (although some may originate in counter intelligence efforts) seem to coincide. Extraterrestrial battles among opposing extraterrestrial groups may be a reality (albeit with multiple degrees of crudeness and sophistication) in transdimensionally functional civilizations IF they are able to follow more meta systemically complex and inclusive rules of engagement. This situation might have been extended to extraterrestrial-related, secret space programs especially if officially non-existent, technological elite groups have obtained their technology by making contact with ET groups closer to human mental and behavioural patterns.

There may be reasonable and truthful ways to harmonize various allegedly irreconcilable extreme views regarding what can be considered by some a plausible or alleged presence whilst by others an actual and obvious extraterrestrial presence. I hope to have been able to illustrate how Dr. James W. Deardorff’s “leaky embargo” hypothesis still provides us with a general conceptual, non-extremist, reconciling interpretive context useful to conceptually harmonize many exopolitical possibilities.

In simple terms, I’ll say that EXOPOLITICS is the field of research and political activism dealing with the cultural and practical implications of an extraterrestrial presence. While serious evidence exists regarding a complex, interacting, intelligent extraterrestrial presence, it is not absolutely necessary to believe in this, but it is minimally necessary to consider the implications of this possibility either in the past, the present or the future. Exopolitics: Definitions by Outstanding Researchers Michael E. Salla PhD: Exopolitics is the formal discipline that studies the implications of extraterrestrial life in relation to public policies. It is the study of the key individuals (actors), institutions and political processes associated with extraterrestrial life.


Dr. Salla’s style tends to be more academic but operating under an extensive conceptual range. http://exopolitics.org/about/founder/ Relying on decades of diverse accumulated evidence with assigned degrees of credibility, at the Exopolitics Institute founded by Dr. Salla, the extraterrestrial presence is already considered to be a concrete reality of immense cultural, legal, political, religious and scientific interest for humanity.


Alfred L. Webre JD: Exopolitics is the study of political processes and governance in inter stellar community. Dr. Webre –a Canadian- coined and-or popularized the term “exopolitics.” On my account, Webre’s style is more “interpersonal” as he values more personal evaluations based on interviews. He may be correct regarding some less verifiable aspects but probably also tend to fall into some exaggerations. http://exopolitics.blogs.com/about.html I think that Dr. Webre and Dr. Salla’s definitions complement each other.


Stephen Bassett: Exopolitics is the art or science of government as concerned with guiding or influencing governmental policy toward extraterrestrial-related phenomena and extraterrestrial beings.  Mr. Bassett also refers to “exopolitics” as “exopolitical actions, practices, or policies” as “the exopolitical opinions or sympathies of a person” and as “the total complex of relations between the human race and non-human, intelligent beings.” Stephen Bassett (who organized public audiences for the disclosure of the extraterrestrial cover-up at the National Press Club in Washington, DC) focuses more on political activism, especially vying for the great world powers in the know to reveal to their citizens and to the world what is what they really know and secretly research about the extraterrestrial presence. http://www.paradigmresearchgroup.org/


Ed Komarek: Exopolitics is the study of politics pertaining to extraterrestrial contact. According to Mr. Komarek “Exopolitics is based upon the understanding that earth is being visited by many advanced extraterrestrial races with diverse ethics, motives and agendas. http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/


Paola Harris: Exopolitics is the convergence of an interdisciplinary science, a political movement and a new paradigm which relate to the vast range of implications regarding extraterrestrial life. Exopolitics also is the study of the contacts and relationships between humanity and extraterrestrial civilizations. http://www.paolaharris.com All the previous mutually enhancing definitions and associated exopolitical research aim at understanding the complexity of extraterrestrial life and at developing adequate, mutually beneficial policies.


The development of well-informed, life-enhancing policies about the extraterrestrial presence so as to peacefully and intelligently integrate humanity in a respectful way within a vast cosmic community of intelligent beings is a crucial goal in Exopolitics.


There also is a short and a longer formal definition of Exopolitics worth mentioning because they were developed within Exopolitics Institute as a group consensus process in 2009. The group participants were Michael Salla Victor Viggiani, Manuel Lamiroy, Pepón Jover, Robert Fleischer, Paola Harris, Neil Gould, Come Carpentier.


The FORMAL DEFINITION: Exopolitics is an interdisciplinary scientific field, with its roots in the political sciences, that focuses on research, education and public policy with regard to the actors, institutions and processes, associated with extraterrestrial life, as well as the wide range of implications this entails through public advocacy and newly emerging paradigms.


The SHORT DEFINITION Exopolitics is the convergence of a new interdisciplinary science, an international political movement and a new paradigm, which all deal with the wide range of implications of extraterrestrial life.


Please go to this link  http://exopoliticsinstitute.org/?page_id=1043 Further Development of the Concept Exopolitics has various aspects. It can be understood as a scientific discipline (as an emerging social science) involving research, education and the creation of policies (focusing upon actors, institutions and processes) in order to treat in a coherent way the implications of extraterrestrial life, including an intelligent extraterrestrial presence.


Another aspect of exopolitics refers to a global, multicultural, multinational and-or grassroots social movement with educational purposes advocating to transform the current (scarce, often dismissive and excluding) management of information on extraterrestrial life. It also advocates the creation of new, democratically and publicly sanctioned national and international policies of research, aperture, contact and education.


Furthermore, exopolitics is in agreement with the necessity of broadening and actualizing our metaphysical and scientific concepts about the nature of reality, basing ourselves on more inclusive and new philosophical, methodological, scientific, ethical and spiritual paradigms which can help us understand in a more complete and profound way the nature of possible interactions with a diverse cosmic community which apparently transcends the classical limits of space-time and an excessively simplistic dichotomous way of thinking.


The shifts and additions in “paradigms,” worldviews and in their implicit metaphysics would relate with increases in the capacity of consciousness to take in more perspectives in first, second and third person subjectivity. Open systems theories, autopoiesis and complexity sciences, “exoconsciousness” (or the role of consciousness in cosmological, organizational, and evolutionary processes), holographic theories (like astronaut Edgar Mitchell’s), information-based physics, alternative non-classical technologies, quantum computing, non-standard, coherent interpretations and applications of quantum and quantum-relativistic phenomena, variations on M-Theory, zero-point energy, possible forms of canceling gravity and inertia as well as studies in relation to a physics connecting consciousness, retrocausality, information, multiple realities, geometry, higher dimensionality and even “subtle energies.”


Deeply related to Exopolitics is the field of Exoconsciousness, a concept developed by Mrs. Rebecca Hardcastle Wright andpertaining to the extraterrestrial origins, dimensions and abilities of human consciousness. http://rebeccahardcastlewright.com/about/


The very unfoldment of the Cosmos would also be related in a fundamental way to the expressions of consciousness.   Moreover, I think that recognizing the primacy of Consciousness as Non Dual (distinct and prior to subjective consciousness and its simultaneously-arising objective “material” counterparts, processes and mechanisms in multi-tiered levels of “reality”) is crucial not to fall yet into another form of reductionism, however subtle, even if it is based on a post-classical science.  Furthermore, I think that  – in regards to philosophy – it will be important to extend our concepts and practice in a transdisciplinary manner, partially based upon elements of Ken Wilber’s “Integral Theory” (and in other compatible Meta integrative models) which challenge the primacy of a classic materialist realism and-or reductionist materialism contributing to the creation of less dichotomous, more integral and inclusive “paradigms” and rational metaphysical foundations. 


Considering the recent developments in Meta Philosophies and or Integrative philosophies (like Basarab Nicolescu’s, Edgar Morin’s, Ken Wilber’s and Roy Bhaskar’s) I think that Exopolitics should advance beyond (or rather transcend and include) interdisciplinarity becoming TRANSDISCIPLINARY as common axioms and principles behind the various disciplines that contribute to this discipline are discovered.   In this manner Exopolitics will resonate more in accord with the philosophical shift bound to modify other disciplines related to the possibility of a profound transformation and reestructuring of civilization (disciplines like Astrobiology, an emergent consciousness and information-based, hyperdimensional physics and even perhaps Ecology, Economy and the Complexity Sciences). I think that discovering how to integrate qualitative and quantitave conceptual structures and methods under shared axioms, patterns and principles will assist humanity in establishing a less dichotomous and more intelligently inclusive dialogue with extraterrestrial civilizations.  


Currently, Exopolitics primarily uses the more qualitative methods of the social sciences basically to produce evaluations or assessments (akin to intelligence assessments) about different cultural, political, strategic, legal, interactive and social situations pertaining to an actual or to a possible extraterrestrial presence. It aims at being useful for political decision-making in relation to extraterrestrial life and – as an extension – in relation to space law and the actual use of space. In case of acknowledge the discovery of extraterrestrial life (even if microbial) and in contact with ET intelligences working in conjunction with the United Nations would likely be necessary. Find out about the United Nations’ OOSA at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0cOFMgKUFw


The legal status of extraterrestrial beings and even of their alleged bases on Earth and rights to traverse the skies of current modern nation-states is also considered. Whenever possible serious exopoliticians analyze and compare information with (verified or probable) leaked or declassified official documents. The probable motivations behind individuals, institutions and groups are also analyzed. Likewise, probable historical patterns of interaction in what appears to be an ancient human-extraterrestrial relationship are researched and there’s an attempt to elucidate the diverse probable interests and purposes behind policies of cover-up and-or release of information as much as the diverse probable interests and purposes of a variety of extraterrestrial beings.


Also, there’s an attempt to understand which would be the more adequate “paradigms” and rational metaphysical presuppositions needed to constructively assimilate the reality of an interacting extraterrestrial presence. Moreover, there’s an attempt to predict the consequences of a greater degree of publicly recognized contact events with extraterrestrial beings and to educate and (given that representatives from several extraterrestrial civilizations seem to have been continuously interested in establishing various degrees of direct contact with citizens from different countries) promote greater levels of responsible citizen contacts or a responsible “citizen diplomacy” establishing contact protocols based upon the principle of mutual respect.


Although at Exopolitics Institute there’s a provisional overall extraterrestrial typology developed on the basis of observing consistently reported interactive behavior patterns (Helpers, Observers, Manipulators and Intruders),there is also an attempt to study all aspects of these interactions ever more profoundly and to understand how may the cosmic community be organized; a “community” which would probably be interacting with us under norms and principles based on a more inclusive logic. Mr. Manuel Lamiroy gives a good overview about exopolitics in his web site as follows: http://www.exopaedia.org/Exopolitics  and at http://www.exopoliticssouthafrica.org/exopolitics.htm  He also created a good diagram which at a glance illustrates some of the basic areas of exopolitics. It can be found at http://www.exopoliticssouthafrica.org/exopolitics.htm Lamiroy has been a long-time, integrative researcher who has also published an “Exopaedia” with vast information including some possible extraterrestrial typologies, possible planetary origins and more.

Possible ET spacecraft at a previous Mission Rahma gathering.

A message corroborated by a daylight sighting was received for inviting the press for the 9th occasion to a “programmed sighting.” This particular programmed sighting (after a telepathically received transmission) was telepathically received by Sixto Paz Wells and it included the participation of some simple and (otherwise normal) key persons from “Mission Rahma” in Perú. I think that it was basically a success. It was not a dramatic or “jaw dropping” series of sightings or a landing of craft with a boarding but it was, nonetheless, successful. There were anomalous objects during the expected dates and at the place expected as the message said. Some reporters invited declined to attend but one of them came (Marco Barraza acting on behalf of Telemundo Network for the TV program “Caso Cerrado”). Marco is also a member of our civilian committee assisting the Peruvian AF in its newly opened office (DIFAA).

On March 30, at 7.40PM approximately there was one ‘OK’ anomalous-suggestive sighting (short lasting for a few seconds unique enough to suggest an ET craft). It was unique enough but nothing extraordinary. It may have been some 10 miles away, displaying with a yellowish color and it appeared to zigzag a little. It was a bit too short in duration and too distant. On this occasion the telepathic message received had not specified an exact hour or period of time as it had happened before on previous years. However, after that brief sighting event of March 30th there were others, more mostly taking place the following day.

During the camping event seeking contact verification we meditated, prayed and dedicated ourselves to many guided and intentional spiritual visualization efforts and activities requesting spiritual assistance not from ETs but from divinity (mostly God the Father & master Jesus Christ in our cultural milieu). After deciding to telepathically ask once again what would happen (very little seemed to be happening until then) our friend Sampiac, an ET human from a friendly civilization somehow located in Venus (likely under a different advanced inter-reality physics) communicated and said that they were in the area where we were and said to be attentive during day time. During daytime some minor UFO photos were taken after that. It is not ‘channeling’ with the unrealistic, grandiloquent expectations in the typical U.S. “New Age” sense. It is a method connected to verifiable collective experiences. I hope there is a cultural opening to what genuine and serious Hispanic & Latin American contactees can offer to the world.

Then, the following day (March 31st),  there was a second and quite definitive sighting (semi “jaw dropping”) of an illuminated object lasting for 5 minutes slowly flying above closer and distinctively from West to East over the campsite in the desert of Chilca. We were 22 witnesses at the campsite and all of us saw it clearly. It also had a yellowish color. It was perhaps materially located above us at 1-3 miles in altitude and – for certain –  it wasn’t the Space Station, a drone, a meteorite, airplane, Chinese lantern or satellite. I still don’t know  if it was detected by AF radars. It happened yesterday, on March 31, 2014 according to my watch between 6.45.PM-6.50.PM. I tried to film it and perhaps did a little but failed because of choosing the wrong camcorder. Others filmed it and I should be getting one of those versions soon. I did take some photos. Only Marco and I were there – in a way – as reps of the Peruvian AF as civilian advisors.

There also were some semi good pictures taken. One by another contactee in daytime: disc shaped but not jaw dropping. A bit blurry, disc shaped object…metallic appearing. It will be better analyzed on computer later on. I’ll get the picture soon. Sixto also photographed a smaller manifestation dot like sphere. Not dramatic. Also, besides satellites seen and confused as space craft by less informed people at night some of us saw an ‘anomalous’ pulsating white light and others (including my wife saw a rather strange light descending too fast behind the mountain ridges some distance away from the campsite.

While it was not a fantastic landing event to shout to the four winds, I think it was an important corroboration and an appropriate beginning for a new stage of mutually respectful, easygoing, peaceful and natural interactions with benevolent, human ET friends waiting to interact with us in more intelligent and collective ways that what has taken place until now; this in a harmonic relationship and with a diversity of allies. The moderate but corroborated sightings and mental interactions after the telepathic appointment indicate to me that there also exists a gradual, reasonable, non-intrusive approach, good so as not to stir those people who while “in the know” harbor fears and suspicions attempting once again to block what may be going on- My opinion is that the ETs in general (and – more poignantly – those contacting through Mission Rahma) are respectful of our average collective mindset, of our human leadership and our human institutions trying to show restraint out of respect, but they know that humanity as a whole needs to know this reality and to make wise choices without being continuously caught in the fear of ignorance.

Success depends on our less divisive and dismissing attitudes, on greater openness but with objective criteria, greater humbleness, knowing that friendship and good will are possible; inviting them while respecting the meditation and consciousness preparation processes used in esoteric, “shamanic” and mystical ways. I think that most of “Them” don’t want to traumatize or to force their presence upon us. We should NOT just jump into judging them as “potential enemies” as traditional political relations (and political theories) have normally been. Maybe not even those genuine cases of typical abductions should be understood as such under simplistic terms. The rules of engagement coordinating different ET groups may be more sophisticated than what we normally proyect unto them.

The situation has a complexity that needs to be treated differently under an enhanced, less divisive, less simplistic approach. However, the tendency in the U.S. and elsewhere is to focus so much on the negative, the gory; on secrecy, manipulations, abductions, cover-ups, abuse of technology and so forth that (from the beginning of the “Modern UFO Era” in the 40’s & 1950’s some of the genuine contactee cases were – sadly and in detriment to human understanding- dismissed as crackpot cases (specially by some nuts & bolts Ufologists, academics and other “scientifically-minded” cultural leaders following modern-rational institutions). Officialdom and accredited institutions did not give the genuine contactees a proper, respectful chance to verify that what they said was true. The giggle factor prevailed backing up the official, orthodox view. That was unfortunate; against improving our collective understanding of an important aspect of what is really going on and credibility must be regained about respectful physical contacts with respectful extraterrestrial beings. Whether really necessary to wrap it up in secrecy and denial, it was a time in which protecting people’s innocence from disruptive news was taken seriously; a time in which understanding the technology involved was considered crucial to gain military advantage, especially soon after the Second World War in the midst of the “Cold War” and so forth.

Very good news: I learned that Sixto Paz was recently invited by two current congressmen (I think they may be Robert Menendez & Rep. Pascrell) to give presentations or to inform them (don’t know where) in NY, NJ,DC and after 25 years since the 1989 “programmed sighting” in Chilca (with several national and international reporters) after which when he was invited by two US Hispanic TV networks Telemundo and Univision to report on the events, he was stopped at the Miami Intn’l Airport and deported back to Lima. The events back in 89’ were a bit more dramatic and were witnessed and filmed by more reporters than the ones we witnessed yesterday and the day before yesterday. Now Sixto has been granted a VISA once again. It’s important for exopolitics. It’s important for all of us if we care for knowledge, truth, freedom of choice and positive cultural options in relation to our better future with extraterrestrial matters. What will take for the cultural elite and even many ufologists to at least open up to the possibility?

It is not a “civilization crisis” that has to ensue. From my assessment with Mission Rahma it is simpler and more natural than what many may think. Kindness, openness, humbleness and good will with serious effort and group coherence with the use of some basic techniques can be a path to real contact. We can indeed make contact and connect with many of these respectful, conversant civilizations on a definite but gradual basis, feeling at ease and neither treating them as “aliens” or us being treated as “specimens.” And it is real, although it may take time to realize that…to open up our eyes and cease thinking that it must be a fantasy, delusion or mistake. I think our focus should not basically be on technology but on the development of consciousness, values and (why not?) a more integral, less dichotomous spirituality. Feeling, idealism and effort with care and balance seem to be the key to success for these peaceful contacts rather than intellectual prowess (even if a good dose of objective and critical thinking should always be present).

Moreover, if there are some other types of beings unlike those more respectful ones known in Mission Rahma we may learn to understand them without considering them either as “enemies” or necessarily allowing them to use us as “specimens.” We can also come to understand how ETs in general operate and “travel” in space-modifying ways (not “through” space), even if most current academicians avoid dealing with the subject because it doesn’t make sense to them according to their current theories.

In general these friendlier, communicative ETs which have been the focus of attention within Mission Rahma may also be more “mental” and less emotional than us (although not like many of the so called “grays”) but they also transmit kindness and tranquility in peace and harmony and act accordingly. It’s been 40 years of such interactions which include preparations for different levels of contact and the reproduction of the contact experience in different countries and with different contactees; basically not a follow-the-leader cult. Many messages and contacts have been collectively verified. The next stage in “ufology” (to really find out what is going on) may be more interactive, as the work by astronaut Mitchell from www.contactee.org , Dr. Joseph Burkess from www.etletstalk.org/ , Dr. Steven Greer’s CSETI  and Dr. Michael E. Salla’s efforts also show.

An important point is to definitely establish that this is really happening and IS GOOD for Earth civilization(s) to grow up seeing themselves/ourselves as participants in a vast community of intelligence composed of larger wholes that may precede us in linear time but which have maintained a continuous involvement with our species since the beginning; growing up by taking in new perspectives that may lead us to assume a more integral responsibility and a more inclusive ethical approach.  No major social disruption is obligatory as a Brooking Institute report once suggested for NASA. Social cultural changes would be self-determined and gradual; increasing conscious interaction with extraterrestrial civilizations, understanding a more complete physics, cosmology, metaphysics and epistemology that instead of debasing our religions may render them more brilliant, inclusive, enhanced, tolerant, resilient, adaptive and non fear-based. We need to recognize that ET reality which sort of tangentially (until we become more aware and responsible as a species) interacts with our physical Earth system. I think that the contact is becoming less of a taboo and more obvious. We need that reference frame in order to develop into a more coherent/self-determining planetary society, better integrated while maintaining our healthiest regional/national differences.

It is convenient for the U.S. and the world to find out who are our friends and which ET varieties are more respectful of our conscious choice and doing it by going beyond an “us vs. them” attitude or unendingly reproducing a of lack of trust, focused on real or contrived abduction stories, and militarization, secrecy and a fear that sells with a quest for technology and manipulation as the only conduit for making sense of the ET reality. We should not blindly move against the ETs, particularly against those that may be more respectfully protective of us while trying not to create dependencies or unnecessary fear-based rejection. We may also gain respect from other ET varieties by consciously choosing with knowledge and certainty how to interact more as equals. Citizen diplomacy continues being a reality and it might be on the rise while (even in the absence of formal institutional recognition) each person or small group interaction should affect humanity through a form of non-local, quantum-related, information-based, holographic-type of connection. Nevertheless, a sufficiently clear, truthful official disclosure would probably be as important as contact events springing up worldwide.

I will try to post some current pictures and-or video of the March 30-31, 2014 event as soon as I get them. The pictures posted thus far are from previous efforts and gatherings. The following is a You Tube post from a March 30-31, 2009 event after a previous telepathic appointment.  Telemundo Network Marco Barraza reports https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMmcTDQj1lg

Next is a link to my 1st photo taken with Sony SELP 1650 Lens: 3.5-5.6 16-50mm. Date: Marzo 31, 2014.


Place “Quebrada de Chilca, Perú” (Chilca Gully, Perú). Time: 6.40PM. Seconds after sighting I turned the camera on and took this picture with its  “Superior Auto” mode as the object began to approach toward the group while seemingly maintaining its altitude.

The object was basically orange and appeared due West at an approximate angole of 45 degrees over the horizon. it seeemd to be at 3 KM altitude approximately. It looked larger at plain sight. The object approached the campsite (toward the east) and passsed almost above us turning a little bit above the hil that conememorates Mission Rahma’s (contact group) 40th anniversary and suddenly could not be seen anymore. We were 22 witnesses at the campsite. According to my watch the sighting lasted 5 minutes and clonclued at 6.45 PM. The object apparently reacted by lighting up to our verbal expressions like “Thank you brothers. You are welcome.”

Upon enlarging the image we can see some detail. Like a filament of orange plasma or light coming down from its right side and perhaps some (blurry) structure inisde the main ovoid shape.
