Our Galactic Neighborhood And Why It Matters
If you care about human freedom and sovereignty, please take a minute and sign this petition against the alien invasion of this world. Your voice maters!
What kind of galactic neighborhood do we live in? Is it a densely populated region where trade and commerce are the norm? Or do we live in a remote and inaccessible part of the Milky Way? It’s hard to know what’s going on out there while we’re stuck on this rock. That’s why the Allies of Humanity material is so important. They give us the perspective and vantage point that we simply cannot have with our present technological development.
The question matters more than one might think. Consider any country in the world today. Its political, economic and military state of affairs are heavily dependent upon the kind of neighborhood it happens to be in. For instance, a country like Australia will have very different needs and concerns than a country like Ethiopia. Knowing what’s happening around us can help us understand both the challenges and opportunities we face. With this greater vantage point, we can intelligently conduct policy to advance our interests.
So what kind of neighbors are we blessed with? According to the Allies of Humanity, we live in a densely populated region of space. There are powerful worlds with their own spheres of influence, but there is no single empire that controls everything. Freedom is rare in the universe. There are worlds that enjoy the type of freedom we take for granted, but they are the exception. The majority of our neighbors have chosen to structure their societies in a highly controlled and oppressive fashion. Think North Korea with a galactic fleet. There are also powerful trade organizations called Collectives that control many worlds. Like giant multinational corporations, they are economic powers and have no real military of their own. They are constantly looking for new members.
We live in a highly competitive environment. Everyone is looking for resources and advantage. In the New Message book Life in the Universe, we learn that this region of space has largely been at peace for the past 10,000 years. This stability is guarded with important rule of conduct that every world must follow. Worlds that break them get shunned and denied access to trade and resources. Worlds are forbidden to outright militarily invade others. Groups or worlds that seek to conquer others must do so through stealth and deception. This is what the alien intervention is currently attempting with Earth.
Understanding who’s around us and how they operate gives us the ability to formulate policies that can better serve us. Humanity must behave intelligently if it is to maintain its freedom and sovereignty. What might some of these policies be?
We must function as a united world. This will eventually mean one Earth government, but perhaps that’s far off into the future. In the interim, countries need to stop their ceaseless conflicts and begin protecting our borders to space.
We must stop transmitting radio waves into space. The less people know about us, the better. Remember: it’s a highly competitive neighborhood out there. We cannot afford to draw attention to ourselves.
We must preserve our environment, conserve our resources, and build the most sustainable civilization we can. Trading with other worlds would open us to being influenced and manipulated by them.
Like it or not, we are engaged in competition with other powers in this region of space. It is in the interest of humanity that everyone fully realize their potential for contribution. We’re all in the same boat. It’s time, as a species, that we start rowing in the same direction. Our collective strength depends upon the strength of every individual. Health, education and economic opportunities must be expanded so that every person on Earth can make a contribution.
We must make alliances with other free worlds. The Allies of Humanity are unofficial representatives of such worlds. They have explained that they will not officially engage with us until we are prepared for it.
We must not become the aggressors. Humanity has a long track record of war and conquest. If we adopt this same attitude in space, we will be destroyed by the collective might of our neighbors.
The reality of the Greater Community of intelligent life must no longer be a subject of ridicule. It must become a conversation at every dinner table, on every talk show, and in every parliament.
Individuals everywhere must become adept in the mental environment. The alien invasion does not use force. They use psychic abilities to manipulate people. Humans also have the capacity to cultivate these abilities using development programs like Steps to Knowledge.
As you can see, having a better understanding of the environment we inhabit can inform our policies. Our leaders have the responsibility to lead us in the right direction, but we cannot simply expect our governments to do our work for us. Humanity is only as strong as the individuals that make it up. The next years and decades and centuries will determine what kind of future our race has in this region of space. Freedom is rare in the universe. Nothing can be taken for granted. It’s really up to us. Understanding what’s out there is an important step, but it’s only the first one.
