The primary purpose of this blog is to suggest a simple approach to initiating contact now with the ETI(s) interacting with the human race, and to argue that learning of the experiences of other rapidly evolving technological civilizations might be critical to the well being and even survival of our civilization. At a minimum, if the idea is discussed openly enough, it will end any pretense of a 'debate' over the reality of UFOs.
The secondary purpose is to suggest a simple 'open-source' science experiment which could end the 'debate' over the reality of psychic phenomena, and to argue that a better understanding of the relationship between consciousness and 'reality' might also be critical to our well being, and perhaps even survival.
The first post explains all the main ideas, and explains the approach to initiating contact now. (If you're only interested in why it's important to initiate contact now, and how this can be accomplished, a later post explains it more briefly.)
While any significant interaction with an advanced civilization will necessarily end the simplistic notion of 'scientific materialism' and any debate over the reality of psi, the second post explains an experiment which should be able to accomplish this now--before contact occurs.
The third post suggests an approach for testing the notion that humans, subject to various other presently unknown factors, influence by their thoughts, intentions, beliefs, and expectations, etc., the physical reality they experience in their lives.
The other posts are mostly commentary and speculation about the primary issues.
Of course, for 'skeptics' who 'just know' that UFOs and psi are 'nonsense', this probably isn't the blog for you.
Please note that no attempt is made to present evidence to support the reality of UFOs and psi, since the publicly available evidence already demonstrates this beyond any doubt. The two experiments are simply intended to demonstrate their reality in an open, public, undeniable way.
