Afterword to *Star World Ascension*

by Julie Loar


Ted’s first email to me, in response to one of my ongoing astrology articles in Atlantis Rising magazine, arrived at the end of April of 2010. This Afterword is being written in July of 2017—more than seven years later. Ted is still working on his complex home remodel and addition, an ambitious project that began quite some time before we met, and in spite of the counsel and expectations we’ve received from our trance sessions, we are still unable to be together full time.

Our first exploratory session in this ongoing adventure took place in early November of 2010, and we have now completed more than ninety telepresence conferences. The timeframe for the trance sessions in this third volume was late 2012 and into 2013. It’s challenging to look back more than four years, trying to recall the context of our experiences at that time. The overall tone of the third volume of trance sessions has a quality of sadness that profoundly mirrors my own.

During my very first unexpected encounter with Rhi (the Pleiadian from 300 years in the future) in May of 2010 she told me I was leading a double life. Without preamble, she said that when I was asleep as Julie I was awake as her on a star ship. I was completely freaked out. A dear friend, who was becoming certified in hypnotherapy, was facilitating that trance and nothing on Earth (so to speak) could have shocked me more or made me question my sanity. That prophetic session was just days before Ted and I had our first phone conversation.

When I was a child, still in elementary school, memories of nightly “dreams” of piloting star ships were vivid and well-remembered. To the amazement and confusion of my parents and local librarians, I read every sci-fi book in our library and felt like my night life was more real and meaningful than my daytime life in Columbus, Ohio. I was eleven or twelve and longed for space. Fertile seeds had been planted early in life for the awareness that would come decades later.

Since then, and as a result of our sessions, I have felt that my need for sleep since my earliest years, which my family and friends always noted, was related to what I now understand as my hybrid nature. In my 2010 trance session, Phindar, Rhi’s partner, who is Ted’s future self, was also on that ship as the lead science officer (like Spock) but I was the “captain.” I think my sense of responsibility, and the burden of “command,” bleeds through both lives. It’s a deep and complex process with intense implications in our current lives that we continue to explore.

Many of the amazing beings who join us at tables of various shapes and sizes feel like old friends–some feel like close family. But sessions #39 & 40 in this third volume, which occurred around the time of Easter of 2013, were deeply emotional. In these sessions we traveled back to Biblical times at Mount Carmel, in current day Israel, where Ted and I were Essenes at the school and temple there. We had been part of the group at the Mount Carmel school of prophets when preparations were being made for the arrival of Yeshuah (usually called Jesus in English) and Immanuel by the Pleiadians. My trance experiences had us sitting in a circle on the ground with famous Biblical characters, in the year 28 CE. Participants included Yeshuah Immanuel, Mary Magdalen (Miriam of Magdala), Mother Mary, Joseph his father, Joseph of Arimathia, the Magdalen’s father, and others from that time and that group. The session told us that how things have turned out has been a disappointment to them and much harm has been done through human frailty to an impulse that had a high and noble intention. In my trance state I received a warm hug from the Master that I will never forget.

I have been fascinated with the Essenes for many years, and I learned a great deal through the trance sessions of the famous psychic Edgar Cayce. The story Cayce told was quite different from the traditional story. Cayce predicted the discovery of what are called the Dead Sea Scrolls that were hidden in terra cotta jars in high mountain caves near Qumran in Israel. The scrolls were found by Bedouin goat herders in 1947, and their contents continue to amaze Biblical scholars. These discoveries were our first modern meeting with the Essenes who lived at Qumran where John the Baptists was one of their members.

The Essenes of Mount Carmel are still unknown to most people. Cayce described them as a community who lived by high standards of purity and cleanliness. They wore white robes of woven flax and were excellent gardeners and vintners. They were vegetarians who did not follow the lunar calendar of the temple in Jerusalem, abhorring the blood sacrifices and tribute that was required. Instead, they had a solar calendar similar to ancient Egypt and learned about the stars from Persian Magi. The Mount Carmel Essenes had a school of prophets, were said to commune with angels, and worked with Gabriel, preparing the way for the coming of the “messiah.” This is the same Gabriel who appears in accounts of other Pleiadian projects.

This experience revealed another “pearl” in a long strand of shared lives for Ted and me. Our guides and trance sources tell us that ours is a vastly old connection—a half million years. We’ve also been told we have a pattern of not being together in one place and that we committed to overcoming the pattern in this incarnation. After seven years the inertia that keeps the pattern in place appears to be as strong as ever. In the early stages I was filled with hope and had high expectations of what our writing and life together would look like in our “golden” years.

Our experiences thus far have profound meaning, but the form doesn’t match our early hopes and dreams. I have moved through layers of disappointment and grief but have come to a fragile sort of acceptance. But I have the same sense of sadness from unrealized dreams I felt from the Essenes in the trance sessions, although their disappointment runs far deeper.

Increasingly, but with satire and humor, I frame my relationship with Ted like the famous quote from Friedrich Nietzsche, “that which does not kill us makes us stronger.” I have come to believe that the karma and purpose of our relationship is not meant to make me happy, but rather to make me strong. Once sufficient healing has taken place, and the strength is integrated into my soul and psyche, perhaps the pattern will also change form.

Meanwhile, we continue to learn how far-reaching and complex the story of Earth is. What most humans think of as history is like a thimble of water from an ocean of experience. According to our guides, Earth’s story is long and ancient story and not going well at this writing. While the trance sessions continue to be profound, and I feel that our role in one Pleiadian experiment has exceeded their expectations, I still struggle mightily with my human disappointment. But regardless of the challenges and the pain, this truly remarkable journey of transformation continues to be worth the cost.

Julie’s sketch of how Yeshua Jmmanuel looked to her in the TC Sessions

My own studies taught me to think of him as Yeheshuah, which means “to restore,” or “to save.” I learned that this name consists of five Hebrew letters unlike the four that comprise the name of Jehovah. YeHeshuah has the triple flame letter shin in the center. However, Pleiadians refer to him as Emmanuel, “god with us.”

Short Introduction to *Star World Ascension*

by Ted Denmark Ph.D.

*      *      *      *

After initial revelations of previously suspected but not well-understood circumstances of Julie and Ted’s lifelong contactee experiences in The Star Table Trance Missions—they discovered they are Pleiadian/ Earthuman hybrids with ET fathers from Planet Erra in the Taygeta (Tai-jeta) System—they now move beyond the V. 2 adventures of Star Family Excursions towards aspects of Earthly humankind’s genesis from the region of Andromeda in this third volume of the *J&T Five Star Series*, Star World Ascension. The Andromeda Galaxy, the larger companion of our Milky Way galaxy, is found in the direction of the great yellow star Mirach, the bright Beta star in the Andromeda Constellation (the “chained woman” and future wife of Perseus mythologically, and on the Aries/ Taurus cusp astrologically). Visitors from this most distant place are hosted in this series of Telepresence Conferences in this next group of what we now call “close encounters of the 6th kind,” experienced and reported on by Julie in her superconscious hypnotic-like state of awareness. It is said that Andromedans are responsible for the intriguing Crop Circles (the authentic, accurately rendered ones at least!) that have been appearing now for 50 years, most famously in the south of England. The Andromedans, represented by regular participants Samael & Jhinda, have a somewhat less varied and conspicuous presence on Earth than the Pleiadians or Sirians, though they, too, are fairly similar as archetypal humanoids or hominids in both their galaxy and ours—as is generally true, according to them, throughout the cosmos—if always with local variations.

The period covered is that of 2012 and early 2013, the Ascension Era, before and after the much-anticipated event said here to be a galaxy-wide energy surge similar in nature to that described in the books of Paul LaViolette. Various familiar ETs (‘exotic visitors’) and first-time guests attempt to anticipate the more local consequences of this momentous galactic event for the continuing web of life on Earth. The effects were/are said to be both an immediate tachyon entrainment flash as well as a high-energy photon burst that will impinge more slowly at luminal speed in an extended way on all bodies and substances galaxy-wide over the coming aeons. So, this will not be a local event in a “small planet” venue like ours.

This third volume is not limited to circumstances of either Andromeda or the Ascension “graduation” but will be, as in our two earlier books of similar investigations, a smorgasbord of questions and answers, seemingly dreamed up by Julie and myself but also stealthily steered from the sidelines by our dear friends, the core group of guides: the Pleiadians Rhi & Phindar (our time-line doubles from the Taygeta System 330 years in the future), Semjase, Lysah & Asafah, Arcturians Ariel & Michael, and particularly Earth resident masters Hilarion & Athena,. The questions range from the mundanely personal to the vastly cosmic and various situations in between, from the merely novel and surprising to shocking and unbelievable confirmations … at first … like the machinations of secret—but very real—conspiracies set in motion by “deep state” syndicates, undisclosed rogue military blocs, and the “breakaway civilization” that emerged from the Secret Space Programs of aerospace contractors. This ‘dark cabal’ has already succeeded in taking a cohort of enlisted Earthumans into “outer space” on gravity-controlled craft based on reverse-engineered plans of crashed ET ships (like at Roswell) and breakthrough scientific discoveries that quickly became classified away from the general public—and often from the patent recipients themselves—shortly after submission. These cryptic confirmations of scenarios that appeared during the early uncensored era of the Internet (before greater compromise by commercial assimilation and bot/troll domination and censorship) will eventually become the astounding historical revelations of early Century 21 as they already are for those who have had insight, time and inclination to penetrate the amazingly effective smoke screen bashing of conspiracy theory whistle blowers.

In post-Covid hindsight, various predicted outcomes from the 2012-2017 time-slice have not fully unfolded as expected, generally having been fully disrupted or drawn out longer than anticipated, but some things have occurred that were cautiously explored in our earlier books. The “ETs and Celestial Guides” with all their foreknowledge and wisdom—which is still very impressive to us (J&T)—is yet left open to circumstances by the unknown infinite integration of decisions and shifting states of consciousness of all the many beings alive on-planet and off, a planet now savaged by weather modification warfare (HAARP atmospheric burners in the aftermath of earlier atmospheric and underground nuclear bomb tests), the giant worldwide petrochemical poison lobby (to say nothing of auto emissions—at least they got the lead out!), and many other outrages in the hands of greedy elites driven almost to madness (?) by crushing responsibilities in the siren song of wealth, power and sexual exploits, pushing edgy captive governments with aggressive arms industries towards world domination—just like in the early 20th Century—the more things change the more they stay the same.

Much of the developments in these secret wars now raging among various international oligarch and syndicate groups vis-a-vis classical sovereign governments, particularly regarding projected population control and migrations, amazingly enough, has mostly been kept secret, until now … with instant Internet communications and the disinformation smoke bombs that have been thrown in the first rounds of digital communications and code-based cyber warfare. How much longer can this clash of countervailing tyrannies hold out? That’s one big question that has been explored in several flavors, but the answer remains yet unknown—in the pages and recitations of the co-opted MSM as well as the Q&A of Star World Ascension, but things appear to be really getting stretched out of shape by the apprentice president (former fake fresident who got fired—but is back in 2024!). It’s an improbable political tragi-comedy beyond anything that could have been imagined, which ripens on a daily basis, but perhaps it is suitable for a reality TV star “mad king” bad actor intent on being the Big Monkey who throws the Big Monkey Wrench. But who knows, perhaps his role is to transform the task of the American presidential king into something different (like maybe an executive council?).

These are some of the darker reflections that will seem frightening to some readers as they were for us, but we believe it’s the unavoidable reality of the new Century 21, now closing in on its quarterly culmination with major world-historical events, as happened almost exactly 100 years ago during the previous one. We are grateful our ET friends were allowed to reveal as much to us as they did—but not too much (!)—which would have probably endangered our generally unprotected positions as “ordinary citizens” secretly in contact with possibly “hostile space aliens,” who in reality are merely concerned galactic citizens attempting to prevent worst case scenarios from being carried out, either by malicious intent or ignorant accident. The ETs, too, are faced with new challenges of how much they may wish to intervene, also necessarily clandestinely, in surface affairs on Earth, but they also have new technologies that did not exist in the time of Atlantis, the last time such a world-wide catastrophe threatened (and happened). Naturally, it is our hope the Star Councils will succeed in continuing to set the pace for a peaceful transformation so the salvation and cleanup of the home planet can begin (faster than we can imagine!).

At the same time a consistent thread of spiritual intent is evident in the attitudes shown and advice given by these extraordinary watchers and wise teachers who are here in the environs of Earth to help us gain a greater mastery of our circumstances because, although they appear to be highly-predictable, unshakable optimists, they know that many planetary civilizations in ancient times have gone beyond the point of no-return and self-destructed—like Mars and Malona, what we now call the “Asteroid Belt” in our own Solar System … or even entire solar systems (far away and long ago). In a sense they are like invisible gods behind the scenes, going to extraordinary lengths with their exo-knowledge and advanced technologies to keep many kinds of nuclear war catastrophes from happening, which would have likely already destroyed our world, had they had not been working the night shift behind the scenes. But they have evidently seen it all before and wish to do what they can—in a limited intervention mandate—to preserve equilibrium until the higher energies of the Ascension can begin to have greater effects. Even though the metaphor of “waking up” is an overused expression (“woke-ism”), they say this is perhaps still the best way to look at what is being hoped-for in the house of their dear Earthuman cousins.

Along the way Julie and I are shown some of our past life incarnations in photo-realistic visualizations—something we previously could have probably never imagined knowing, even summarily—which as usual, are immersively experienced by her and only sensed by me from high-frequency energies I can “hear” in my head but cannot decode into full multimedia experiences like her. And in a wonderful new feature, Julie presents her sketches of our now most familiar guests, but also that of Jmmanuel (Jesus) and the huge surprise that accompanies this visit with his Essene family—including Mary Magdalen—during a very “moving” time travel back to the Biblical period in TC Sessions 39 and 40. Along the way it is revealed that we (J&T) also lived during this same Essene sojourn of these biblical personages and are thus qualified to have parts of their still obscure story clarified for a modern audience through their own answers to a few of our questions. Again, as in the Star Family volume, three different ET space craft appear; the largest and most astounding in the penultimate contact, is the space-time traveling ‘Great Spacer,’ the Pleiadian planetoid starship called the Alliance with Semjase’s father, Jshwsh Commander Ptaah, appearing and hosting us … and answering still more questions. The second craft is a very large classic Pleiadian disc-shaped craft with a large dome. The last starship variation is a spherical Lyran ship whose exterior Julie does not get to see. As usual, Julie is the familiar intrepid, multifaceted, and articulate tour guide with an amazing unfolding itinerary far beyond anything anyone, including us, could have imagined. We hope it will have a sufficient ring of truth to help in the wake-up call.

Synopsis for 2nd Edition of *Star Family Excursions*

by Ted Denmark

After initial revelations in The Star Table Trance Missions (V. 1 of the *J&T Five Star Series*) of the reason they have been lifelong UFO/ET contactees (they are Pleiadian/ Earthuman hybrids with ET fathers), Julie and Ted move from the Star Table environs in the vicinity of Aldebaran, the “Bull’s Eye” of Taurus, towards aspects of the genesis of Earthly humankind from the region of the great Central Sun Sirius in this second ‘Star Family’ volume. There was a great cosmic incident in that system around 250,000 years ago in which an anticipated nearby nova explosion required all the inhabited planets to be evacuated en-masse, which they were—just in time. The Sirians don’t want us to call this a “diaspora,” even though all their planets were severely damaged and became uninhabitable and have remained so. What happened to the Sirian refugees who migrated out into the cosmos on the great mother transport ships? They went in all directions, some coming to Earth, and their influences remain evident even today on several continents, particularly Egypt but also Peru and Tibet.

According to Julie, the Sirians appear to be a bit more advanced than the Pleiadians and more detached from the physical aspect of existence, in particular being more spiritual and less dependent on technology to achieve intended results. Julie and Ted are shown some of their past lives in the pre-nova era on Sirian planets in photo-realistic visualizations, which as usual, are immersively experienced by Julie and only sensed by Ted from high frequency energies he can “hear” but cannot decode. Some quite extraordinary figures, such as Aurelia, the planetary regent of Erra, the main Pleiadian planet in the Taygeta system, and Horem Heb from Arcturus, make appearances and interpret events that are as strange and interesting as anything that will ever be reported by us coming from these extraordinary conference personages. Three separate space craft appear in the later sessions, the last in the final contact in which a small group of negotiators from the cognizant local Galactic Council, disembark with their smart lawn furniture from what Julie calls their “Layer Cake” spacecraft for a brief, what is like a press conference, to introduce themselves and their mission: they are here to conduct a peace process with governance leadership on Earth, which has already begun. So, fasten your seat belts and get ready to be beamed up with Julie and Ted and their animal entourage for adventures beyond anything you—or they—could have ever imagined.

The first major innovation to the main text of the 2nd Edition itself is inclusion of Julie’s wonderful portrait sketches (twenty-two figures in all, done after publication of the original edition) of the major or close core-group collaborators, whose involvement in having a continuing “place at the table,” marked them for being sketched and appearing as thumbnails near the seating cartoons of each Telepresence Conference to help establish a visual link between what is said and who is saying it. It does get a bit complicated with so many new guests making one-time appearances (whom Julie did not sketch, with only one exception who only appears once in the next Volume 3, Star World Ascension).

Apart from a bit of new relevant subtext commentary on events having happened in the meantime, the other major addition for the new 2nd edition is inclusion of Appendix III, the “Longer Summaries” of all the sessions themselves (being extensions of the short introductions at the beginning of each), which was an attempt to include and characterize all the situations and main points being made without the full dialogue that actually got recorded. So, it’s a kind of executive summary of the book for anyone wanting a notion of what was said without time or inclination to read the whole book—or, if they did, who might not have understood something possibly obscure … and a certain amount will probably seem obscure or very ‘far-out’ to many readers, but for Julie and I the Q&A here is the culmination of lifetimes of interests and efforts as psychologists, astrologers and contactees to try to understand many fairly exotic circumstances of “high strangeness” that are not generally known—or are currently very controversial … even the existence of the exotic visitors themselves (!). So, in a sense I have become aware of myself as a kind ‘encyclopaedist of the future’ as a result of having become routinely involved with these extraordinary exo-planet consultants from the near and far future, working through the conferences to learn more about many things that almost no one on Earth currently understands very well. Of course many will not be able to distinguish our approach from a sci-fi novel or movie/ TV series—it takes some amount of triangulation to establish string-lines to anchor points in working through the ideas being presented, often for the first time, for anyone.

The level of the most subtle aspect of analysis and evaluation of the proceedings is that neither our moderators, Hilarion and Athena, nor our star-family participants, nor our extraordinary guests can tell us the “whole truth” about many if not most of the answers to our questions because our level of understanding is relatively limited compared to the vaster extents they are aware of, and there are certain things that are agreed upon not to be divulged by them when speaking with persons from an earlier time in the past who need to experience their own present as it unfolds in real time (complex exo-psychology!).

So, the situation here is that of a fundamentally more advanced outlook being presented to us, intended for sharing with potential readers of our time about worlds (the great exo-planet hypothesis) beyond Earth in its current historical context, much like many imaginative or creative sci-fi scenarios and adventures attempt to do, except here a sincere attempt is being made to present it in a far more realistic way—not so much as entertainment—but as an early breakthrough effort going beyond mere disclosure of their existence towards forging an integration between themselves and the more isolated people of planet Earth about the main events happening in our time.

The role these exotic visitors are already playing in our planetary life is amazing enough, but how we will eventually benefit from the uplift, possibly without ever understanding how it happened (!) will also be gratifying even in widespread ignorance—and how we might not have persevered if they had not come to help manage the affairs of the last surviving habitable planet in our distressed solar system. Of course our fate is still mostly in our own hands, and it’s still an edgy and somewhat dicey drama playing out with results they can’t fully predict even with all their advanced technologies and exo-knowledge, but they are committed to saving the Earth and its ancient life-wave during the current major transformation and don’t plan to lose the game, and they also know it could take a while … but it is another planetary emergency.

Introduction to the 2nd Edition of *Star Family Excursions*

by Ted Denmark Ph.D.

      *       *       *

As I began to finish the major new additions, mainly Julie’s portrait sketches of the ‘regulars’ and the Longer Summaries of all the chapters in Appendix II by me, and edits for this new 2nd Edition of our Star Family book … and began to think of writing a new introduction for it, now more than “ten years after” the original sessions had been recorded as with the Star Table 2nd Edition book, I finally decided to re-read the original introduction, which I hadn’t looked at for at least 5 years or so—if only because it was so long (16½ pages in 6×9 format!). I was preparing my internal resolve to cut it back to maybe half that length, feeling a bit embarrassed to have included such a possibly over-long ponderous essay to delay and possibly confront the reader with before launching into the main chapters.

But to my pleasant surprise I found myself actively engaged with the presentation at the half way point when I got up and walked around for a short time to reflect on how time was seemingly neutralized by my feelings of identification and agreement with what I felt and had been moved to write at the time. The second half of the essay, seemingly even more dramatic than the first, also went by in a similar timeless fashion as I reached the end and wondered how all those pages could have simply melted away so quickly and seamlessly into my current stream of consciousness without any of the self-critique I had anticipated (?). The most notable aspect in having gotten through the full re-reading of the introduction after crawling over all the details during the months-long re-editing process, was how powerful the experience had been for both Julie and myself, which had not lost its savor, and how strongly the feelings still resonated about what we had been told by our … as I now say with ease … “dear friends and family.” So, I left the original introduction as it was.

In addition certain of the more controversial aspects of themes brought up in the original, possibly over-long introduction, seemed even more urgent and poignant—and even prophetic—now with the most recent outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine war, following on the still cautiously proceeding resolution with punctuated flare-ups of the world-wide Covid tragedy. Of course there is also the great disappointment of how these tragic events will delay what our conference participants had mostly been so upbeat about with us in the book—now to be appended to the earlier generation of disappointments of the first two “disaster decades” of Century 21. The only thing that was “for sure” was the serious and nostalgic loss of “normality” that everyone could feel so grievously.

What made the particular period covered by the contents of this volume of the newly rebranded *J&T Five Star Series* 2nd Edition of Volume 2 of Star Family Excursions, Sirius, dating from late 2011 to early 2012, was its coincidence with the closest approach of Astraea, the brown dwarf star aka ‘Planet Nine’ or ‘Planet X’ to our main solar system, which had been promoted so extensively in the book as what would become the greatest astrophysical discovery for Century 21 as Pluto had been for the 20th Century—or probably even more so. At the time of writing, now in late March of 2022, Astraea has still not been discovered (at least publicly, even though the geniuses of computational celestial mechanics at Cal Tech like Mike Brown already know it has to be there), but the James Webb Space Telescope, designed for searching the infra-red segment of the electromagnetic spectrum, has safely arrived in its secure Lagrange position a million miles out in space from Earth … and has been turned on and calibrated (and it works!), awaiting full research assignment duties expected by midyear. We can now feel more confident that it will be a spectacular triumph of exotic space science and engineering, both for itself and the imagery it will soon be transmitting back home as the next generation of exo-planet discoveries (!).

In the meantime the world struggles with the lengthening dark shadow of what is now mostly euphemistically referred to as “climate change,” which is wholly attributed by standard science establishment modeling to burning of fossil fuels and human exploitation of the environment (and some flatulent large herbivores), even in this period of a very “quiet sun.” Several shocks to this theory have now more fully emerged with documented discoveries that the heating process is coming, not only from atmospheric regions, but from inside the Earth itself, evidenced by unexpected increased temperatures in the deep oceans and stunning recent increases in volcanism! This is the previously missing unassessed evidence of gravitational coupling between the main solar system generally and Earth in particular—in tow with the nearest approach of the massive dark companion star (not a gas giant planet!) we have called Astraea.

Of course the role of weather modification warfare and how this has secretly proceeded unabated, as uncovered by commentators in our book, has also gone unnoticed in the standard science model in an era in which news has become routinely almost fully managed—everything contrary to controlled reporting is now referred to as “conspiracy theory” in mainstream media—and anything like the real truth that can’t be hidden in spin has been relegated to secrecy for “intelligence” use by security agencies and their secret assets. These are the latest wrinkles in the aging paranoid style of American politics increased by an order of magnitude by the double-bladed digital axe of greatly expanded creativity with the simultaneously increasing tyranny of eavesdropping software with little more left of a rationale for national identity than the simplistic goal of “freedom.” There is still a wide berth for a spectrum of alternate opinion (as long as you don’t attract too much attention), but this is a rather disturbing state of affairs in any event.

It has all become a very volatile situation in the USA with conflict between the increasingly influential West Coast hi-tech, Internet and social media platforms and lifestyles challenging the traditional government and legacy financial and commercial-based East Coast establishment. And now with the flare-up of war rumblings in Eastern Europe as the next phase of the long-smoldering Cold War turning into a hot one like a flashback to WW II with conventional weapons substituting for the deadlocked nuclear confrontation, once again pushing partisan politics into the arena of public warfare reporting to dominate the news channels and driving truth even further into the depths as censorship with the usual “patriotic” rationale. We have learned in our most recent Telepresence Conference sessions that our ET family familiars and their cohorts are shocked and disappointed at these new twists and turns on the road to a golden New Age of free energy and a negotiated world peace that have been mentioned in our pages; but as we know, they have “seen it all before” and will be on duty monitoring and looking for the next best approach for continuing support of worthy causes and innovative initiatives in any event.

But there is a substantial new-ish element in the wind as reactions of some of our BETA (Benevolent ET Alliance) crew to the events now transpiring in this multitudinous East-West conflict being seen increasingly across the world demonstrates … between the US-UK-NATO axis and the Russia-China treaty pairing in the largest frame as well as in the USA itself as noted and in the Russia-Ukraine war on a smaller if yet shockingly more explosive scale: the possible end game of nationalism itself (?). Is what could arguably have been started during say, the Hundred Years’ War between French and English late feudal monarchies which led up to more-or-less democratic European national states during the Revolutionary Romantic Era preceding the Great World War, now be seen to be flaming out—even if the Russia-Ukraine conflict will turn out to be merely the latest episode of the new Hundred Years’ Petroleum Wars? It’s too uncertain and complex to try to fathom any further here and now, but this has been hinted at several times along the way by both Hilarion and Phindar; that very little advantage remains in the longer run for continuing to maintain the nostalgic glory of “modern” nation states themselves and all their overhead of administrative measures preserving arbitrary borders, confining ethnic groups to their historical locales, controlling commercial activities particularly through fiat money exchanges, and preserving tax structures that have already escaped national boundaries, etc. Do we as yet have enough intelligent maturity as an international population to take care of ourselves riding the bicycle of economic and social survival without the trainer wheels of big brother government decree enforced by military means? I, at least for one fractured outsider observer, feel forced to take a more serious look.

Perhaps this will be the most intrusive aspect of the current secondary effect of the Internet wave on the fully international level: its unexpected solvent properties of disintermediation undermining government itself. Are we seeing the withering of the national state that can no more be reversed than the rising tides of meltwater oceans in a cycle of worldwide warming? This would appear to be the question for upcoming generations the world over—and I must say it frightened me too much even as a confirmed “high strangeness” advocate in the pre-Covid era, but as a member of a modestly privileged American elite, I find I’m beginning to prepare for at least acquiescing to the requirements of this major new inevitable generic “globalist” transformation in some sense. Of course, many will resist with kicking and screaming and god-fearing protests as we now see happening in conservative populist reaction. For my part in the short run I am just happy to be sitting here on a cold rainy day in the office of my comfortable off-grid house (with a new well, so I am at least “water wellthy” {;-) for as long as I can manage it—hope being that the whole forest around me isn’t all slated to burn down at once—watching the world wag by and hoping for the best for all who can manage to bend without breaking before the increasing storm which won’t be over for a while … but won’t last forever either.
