IS THE WORLD ABOUT TO CHANGE IN A FUNDAMENTAL WAY?
“Could extraterrestrials help us save the Earth?” “We’d have to be dead above the neck if we weren’t interested in this.”
This New York Magazine piece comes on the heels of a The New York Times article that let us know about government interest in UFOs. More and more stories that came from the fringe are all of a sudden popping up in mainstream media.
It’s popularly understood that if microbial life is discovered on Mars it would change everything. If even finding single-cell life off-planet would be a game-changer, it’s mind-boggling to think how radically changeful the discovery of other intelligent life would be. In fact, if we found other intelligent life it would be the biggest news ever to hit humanity.
It wouldn’t have to be extraterrestrial. It could be coming from another dimension. Or, from something we don’t understand about the past and future existing simultaneously in this phantasmagorical universe where so much is beyond our ken.
Copernicus and Galileo showed us that Earth revolves around the sun. Earth not being at the center of the universe changed our psyches. Over time, top-down management by kings gave way to democracy, where we leveled out the radical extremes in society to match the leveling in the heavens. Another fundamental change in our juxtaposition to the universe would make us rethink everything now.
In light of how bogged down we are with conflict and inequality, it would behoove us to investigate anything that might help us rethink reality. If we discovered other intelligent life, we would be one humanity in relation to “the other.” There would be no sides. All of us would be in it together. And, it wouldn’t just show up in the current news cycle; it would be news forever. Where it’s fingers in the dike to solve what challenges us now, getting a sense of ourselves as one humanity would put us in the best position to deal with everything.
With crop circles being a parallel to UFOs, where the commonality is the indication of another intelligence engaging with us, maybe this UFO interest will give a boost to my documentary, What on Earth?, about crop formations from all over the world, that I poured my heart into! It got a good review in The New York Times and streams free if you you have Amazon Prime. And here’s me, talking about crop circles and my movie on Rosie O’Donnell’s TV show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network.
Let’s hear from you on these interesting developments. Do you think that acceptance of other intelligence would be as changeful as I think it would be?
