Q: How could
advanced non-terrestrial contact assist us out of our
"petroleum-nuclear planetary coffin" and aid us in leading a
sustainable society? Where do you see us in, say 11 years [by
2012] and 50 years [by 2050]?
A: The essence of exopolitics is that our relationships
depend on our interaction. Right now, our official human culture
denies the existence of the ecology of intelligent civilizations
that surround us in space and among the interactive Universe
dimensions. There is not very far that we can get with that kind
of denial. We are a sort of autistic civilization, insistent on
the fact that we alone are alive. That autism is artificial. It
is the result of a ruling network of terrestrial elites who have
kept humanity ignorant of the existence of non-terrestrial
civilizations for at least the past half-century, since the end
of World War II. The autism may also be the result of an
information blackout imposed by lower-order non-terrestrials.
This sentence refers to an “information blackout”
or Quarantine described in
Exopolitics: A Decade of Contact as
“Earth is isolated because it is under intentional
quarantine by a structured, rational
Universe society. There are
signs around us of a Universe initiative to reintegrate Earth
into interplanetary society. It is possible that Earth may be
permitted to rejoin Universe society, under certain conditions,
or at a future time certain.”
Open interaction with Universe society could yield fairly rapid
results in forestalling our ecological crisis, and elevating
human society. New energy non-polluting energy sources - of
human design and application could at last be made available
without their inventor’s fearing assassination by petroleum and
nuclear interests. Our petroleum civilization would be
stalemated and made obsolete. Universe society’s laws and
institutions prohibit war as a conflict resolution mechanism.
The ruling terrestrial elites - and the permanent war economy -
have historically used war as a key means of production and
Exopolitics is the study of law, government and politics in the
Universe. It is Universe law, government, and politics that will
liberate human society.
As to the time frame, that is dependent on human interactivity.
We must build an exopolitical grass-roots on Earth - a
Contact for community politics and education about Universe
society and our Universal heritage.
Q: What encompasses our Universe society? What do you
believe is actually going on here? A re-integration? Has there
been a continuous, hidden, non-terrestrial presence on earth
throughout history?; What is your theory on non-terrestrial
A: Universal law encompasses all of the Universe -
Universal law and justice exist and govern all intelligent life
in the Universe. Universe society is one society - a
multiplicity of societies under Universal law.
Human society, by analogy, is a unitary, multi-cultural society
on a single life-bearing planet.
We are to Universe society as a garden is to the gardener.
Life-bearing planets and the life species on them are grown and
developed by dimensional civilizations which are devoted to
There are many inter-acting facets to what we call
"Non-terrestrial" or "Extraterrestrial". What we see as
"Interstellar space" is but one dimension of a multi-dimensional
Universe. Thus advanced, interplanetary civilizations are in
fact, "multi-dimensional", "extraterrestrial" "interstellar" and
perhaps even "planetary" on another life-bearing planet. What is
of important to Exopolitics is that all of this reality - all
interactions and relationships by intelligent life in the
Universe -are ruled by law, government and politics.
Q: Are global management bodies in contact with some sort
of Galactic Federation or with some sort of supernatural
A: Possibly. From some evidence there may have been fifty
years of intrigue and power relationships between a lower order
non-terrestrial force and USA military-intelligence networks.
Conversely, the highest covert priority of the USA military over
the last 50 years appears to be waging an information war
against the non-terrestrial presence - a knowledge embargo;
black propaganda and black ops to demonize the non-terrestrials.
But this is almost beside the point in the long run.
Universe society is acting to increase the awareness of the
human race as a whole. Open interaction with the highest levels
of Universe society is designed for the evolution of the human
race, not the illusory temporal power needs of a few white men.
Q: If your 1977 Carter White House Extraterrestrial
Communication Study had not been terminated, what would you have
found? Would we have had disclosure over the last 25 years? How
would today be different?
A: We would most probably be now acting under 25 years of
open disclosure. The differences could be incalculable, with
that degree of power and authority to open up interaction and
get beyond the zero-sum game of the death forces that now
enforce the embargo against open contact.
"The only way out is through," the saying goes. Well, we didn’t
get through under the Carter Administration, so now we must get
through at the grass-roots.
Q: Are the non-terrestrials acclimating/acclimatizing us
to their presence? What must humanity do before they exist with
us more openly?
A: Yes. Acclimating is a good term for this process. The
entire UFO phenomenon can be seen as a vast peripheral-cuing
mass psychological condition project to enhance our awareness of
higher intelligence in the Universe.
Humanity is in a very good place, psychologically and
Universally. Between 50 and 100 million adult North Americans
(between 25% and 50% of the adult populations - Gallup and Zogby
polls) believe in the reality of extraterrestrial presence on
Earth. They will not have a problem absorbing the new
The difficulty is not the human population - it is the networks
of human governments and the ownership of a petroleum and
nuclear energy civilization that is in the hands of
retrogressive forces. The ruling terrestrial elites are not
ignorant of the non-terrestrial presence. They are actively
carrying out a fifty year information war against our
integration with Universe society.
Q: Please offer your thoughts on weapons in space; killer
comets/asteroids; the role of the United Nations with
non-terrestrial contact; some sort of shift in the consciousness
A: The USA’s "Star Wars" and the militarization of space
is part of the information war against Earth’s integration with
Universe society. Star Wars is an "inside code word" for this
war among the military planners. The issue is whether our space
technology will be in accord with Universal principles, or
controlled by a military empire. Dealing with near earth objects
is a common application of space technology. The USA will
ultimately suffer ignominious defeat by Universe society should
it persist as a space military power.
Q: Exopolitics seems to involve elite power groups-
information, propaganda, coverup, disclosure, etc. What is the
situation concerning pro and anti-disclosure factions? Will the
non-terrestrials bypass this earth-style politics?
A: Exopolitics merely describes a process - that of law,
politics and government in the Universe. Politics does not end
at the geostationary orbit. It is Universal.
The task of our generation is to make exopolitics at the
grassroots level. Where are the concerts on behalf of
integrating with the Universe? Where are the artists, the
activists, the students, the writers, the militants? Answer -
they are coping with the effects of the information war and the
embargo against even thinking that non-terrestrial civilization.
How do we bust out into a grassroots exopolitics - like the
Peace movement, say of the 1960s-80s?
Q: What essential points are you trying to make in
A: Exopolitics is more than extraterrestrial politics.
Exopolitics is real and an immediate part of Earth’s social
ecology. Exopolitics, as a discipline, is the study of politics,
government and law in the Universe. It is an authentic, newly
received branch of human knowledge, as well as an exciting
frontier. Exopolitics is also the self-regulating process of a
populated, highly advanced and organized Universe. Exopolitics
provides the institutional framework for Earth’s integration
into Universe society. That process is now ongoing and will
accelerate as exopolitical realities are awakened in humankind.
Q: What, in your mind, are the political implications of
the book EXOPOLITICS?
A: Well, we don’t know yet the impact of the Exopolitics
perspective. But the implications of exopolitics itself for
human politics are profound. The change to be brought about is
not a sea change, it is a Universe change for human kind. The
current paradigm of human politics has the political process
ending at Earth’s edge (as the human law of outer space
establishes). Exopolitics mediates Earth’s political and
governmental relationships with societies and organizations in
interplanetary society. The impact of exopolitics on human
politics will be transformative. An aware Grass roots politics
will deconstruct the information war waged against the
Extraterrestrial Initiative, largely by Echelon countries (USA,
UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada). Humankind will reclaim
their Universal rights to Universal citizenship. Earth’s
politics will extend to the exopolitics of other societies in
Q: How do your credentials and background bolster the
A: I think of my contribution to the exopolitical process
in terms of praxis, the melding of theory and practice. As
theory, in The Age of Cataclysm (1974) we developed the context
theory of extraterrestrial communications. That is, interpreting
UFO encounters and the UFO phenomenon as intentional
communication, through an analogue of dream interpretation
theory. Many UFO encounters are archetypal communications from a
higher source. The UFO phenomenon itself can be seen as
peripheral cueing of our species with a goal of activating
Universe awareness. These UFO-based communications are part of
our process of Universe integration.
As practice, in 1977, as a futurist with the Center for the
Study of Social Policy at SRI, I formulated and developed a
proposed study with the Carter White House
on extraterrestrial communication. That study was brutally terminated by the
intervention of the SRI-Pentagon liaison in September, 1977. So
I am familiar with the information war, and am a practitioner of
Q: If you were to narrow down the most important aspect
of your contribution to this process, what would it be?
A: This question itself illustrates the fresh perspective
exopolitics brings. "Important" from whose perspective: the
perspective of terrestrial civilization, or the Extraterrestrial
Initiative? The Extraterrestrial phenomenon - in its Universal
manifestation - is interactive, highly evolved,
multi-dimensional (I am not talking about near-Earth remnants of
our Universe quarantine). I am still not quite sure how my
actions might be "important" from an Extraterrestrial
perspective. Thanks for the question.
