Once again, long time, loyal & generous reader Denis Giroux of Québec, Canada gives us all an invaluable service. Personally this is very entertaining, because I could never objectively select quotes; I don't come away with impressions readers get. More interesting still, is how Denis' energy also comes through because of his impression & choice. As he or any reader might choose then repeat a quote, the reader's energy attaches and arrives along with the original.
I don't select what The Committee or any other spirit, soul or being says; I don't think any of my energy rubs off on the first pass.
I've never asked Denis to do this, I never expect it and it's always a wonderful surprise when he does, a massive birthday or Christmas gift. When I read them I think I come away with a reader's impression, something of which I get little or none when the post is first done.
Enjoy, as I have.
The questions and replies are too big for the comments section, so here we go:
@ Cooper: Potentially complicated questions, but The Committee answers them clearly.
Q: "I would like to provide and seek comment on the term 'progress'. By progress, I mean recognition and acceptance, at society level, of individual free will and right to pursue happiness. The only proper limits to free will are the extent to which one's exercise of free will intrudes into, and limits, the free will of others."
C: Progress is change liked and preferred. Not every human has, does or will ever prefer all changes for many, sometimes complicated reasons. There is often great merit behind these individual human decisions, and often there is a common desire to reach a common policy. The desire for a common procedure, set of rules either extensive or minimal, is shared by nearly everyone interested in or aware of the issue, no matter their specific stance or position. It is your human choice to join ideas, or impose a common set of beliefs everyone should follow. This last part is the greatest challenge faced by all participants; to what extent should rules and sanctions be maintained, reduced or increased? Should free will not also include the ability to ignore the rules?
Acceptance at the society level is a different way of saying, rules preferred which others may not and cannot change. This also means imposition, does it not? All rules can be changed, it is how they are first created.
To this we will add an aspect not yet mentioned; human social groups are essentially families and there is often great interest in the well being of family members. Few parents are eager to see their female offspring become pregnant by males who plan little if any relationship with their daughter or the unborn baby. To suggest that free will should always be accepted is not a road towards happiness, just because the free will is pursued, although it is possible. Is free will to become inebriated and operate a motor vehicle going to lead to contentment? Very few humans aware of intoxicated operation of machinery which risks the safety and lives of others would agree. You now see free will does encounter collective restraints and rejection, depending on the issue.
Q: "So, this principle would encompass all sexual matters, including abortion. The fetus is a vehicle being built, and I would guess that an abortion occurs with the consent of the incoming soul, in soul-level consultation with the prospective mother."
C: Sexual matters for adults or children? Where should the limits be drawn to define maturity or the lack thereof, as these limits apply to sanctions and penalties? Should there be any? All humans want rules fairly imposed, and not made up after the fact. Reality among humans is, there are great variations of maturity and vulnerable innocence, as there always were and always will be.
The fetus is the start of a human life, its development can only lead in this direction. The construction of a vehicle for the soul's life course on Earth, is a component of the complete person. Intentionally terminated pregnancies are sometimes carried out with the consent of the incoming soul, sometimes against that preference. Far more common is the early or stillborn death of a newborn or toddler by disease, accident, abuse or other conditions, the vast majority of which occur for a purpose to serve the surrounding human family of the deceased youngster or baby. Abortions on Earth now, are currently approximately half agreed by the incoming soul, half against that soul's preference. The decision of a soul to assume the body and life to be, is done precisely to live as a human. The free will of the expecting mother to terminate the process is met with deep disappointment as much as acceptance. It is accepted however, as the mother's free will reigns supreme.
Q: "Is what I have stated here accurate in the view of The Committee?"
C: We have addressed this above.
Q: "[The] response rules out certain actions by the federal government, but the result of any court decisions would push these decisions to the states, which in many cases are ideologically bent towards sex-based limitations on behavior. To what extent will individual states be retreating from "progress" as I have defined it?
C: No state in the USA, or province, region or other legal division of any sovereign nation can accurately be described as ideologically given to any goal, and no one human or group is bent, as in crooked, detoured, twisted or deformed to a certain preference as this word is defined.
Within any group there are always indifferent members, then some who prefer one thing and others who prefer a very different thing. Humans have decided majority preferences will prevail, but there is always a significant number among you who disagree with the outcome, no matter which set or subset of opinions is selected.
You ask if federal courts or case rejections will return certain decisions to any or several states in the USA, as happens often and if this occurs, in which ones.
There are always sex-based limitations on behavior, and there always have been. To suggest there will be a retreat reveals a preference for maintenance and expansion in the trends and directions currently occurring. Who should define retreat?
Over the longer term, fertility will decline among all humans although it will not be noted until after the process has been underway for some time. During the term of the current federal administration in the USA, there will not be federal changes. The general sentiment of currently in office, prevailing federal lawmakers and justices is that the central USA government has intruded too far into issues states should essentially decide, however there is no collective will to alter previous decisions.
The many statements being made about national restrictions on aborted pregnancies, are being offered by specific political interests to sway election outcomes, in the hopes voter concerns regarding this one issue will be strong enough to affect the outcome.
There may be small restrictions in several states, however these will not be significant enough to change behavior. The greater difficulty of finding abortion services in one state will simply send such people to another state. Which ones? You will observe this process and gain far more from not knowing the outcomes, thus we remain silent on this aspect.
Q: "Again, thank you so much for your great responses!"
C: Our pleasure to be asked.
Before the topic of the day, allow me to respond to a website message without an e-mail address. The suggestion was an afterlife interview with the soul of model Gia Carangi, who fell victim to drugs and passed away from diseases related to AIDS. The reader suggested Carangi's perspective on several topics. Knowing nothing about her and not even recognizing the name, I ask you readers for questions about:
About 3 dozen responses came in, < 3% of the website's daily traffic and mostly all the same day, quickly slowing to a trickle. Preferences were split evenly between e-books, hard copy and the two.
Upcoming consolidations will be both, previous e-book only also in hard copy print.
Interestingly, a few readers responded they wouldn't buy any consolidations; I don't know if there exists a free format compatible with all devices which can be saved and read on any type device AND IN HARD COPY; Amazon isn't.
What little is kicked back to me by the big South American river & jungle, covers some of my website expenses, as have reader donations. The time for preparing consolidations works out to about $1 per hour, if upcoming purchases resemble the previous, and will probably cover a year of website domain registration.
The posts themselves are - as I've said - a hobby for which I'm finding it increasingly difficult to make time & effort. It's looking like The Alien Handbook was just a hobby-like effort, too. The small publisher advance was about the same cost as attending the UFO conference this past April.
A reader asks:
I would like to ask mechanical question of the committee is this possible?
1) If so then tell us about how you fasten together your space craft. Are they welded together or do you us a type of fastener like the screws we us on earth?
2) What material do you use to manufacture them?
3) I have read some books on alien crafts and we were told we over complicate things.
4) What advances do we need in order to build a craft which responds to the magnetic fields of the earth?
Responds The Committee:
Greetings builders and users alike, we answer in general terms for there are many craft, designs and systems. The explanations could last for years, we will defer these specifics to each civilization as the time comes to display and explain their vessels to humans.
In broad, general terms:
1. They are not fastened together from components. They are monobloc design and production. Consider a combination of what on Earth are called plating and powder coating. The vessel is created this way from metal alloys in both powder applied and plating processes, in layers. This has the effect of lamination and increased strength and resilience. A mold or form of what resembles ceramic material is used, the hull material first coated and baked on. This layer is then plated with a different alloy before a second layer of powdered material is added and thermally treated. Openings and hatches for entry and exit are part of the mold, not cut into the finished shape. Once complete, the mold is removed, dissolved with a solvent which has no effect on the hull.
The process requires the powdered layers to be heated to approximately 4,000 degrees Kelvin in less than what is one second of human time, then cooled equally quickly. The plating is not done with temperature but rather electricity at ambient temperature, as on Earth.
The hull shell structure requires approximately one thousand layers and is approximately 2 centimeters thick. Yes this means one layer of powder metal and plating are approximately 0.002 cm thick.
Some of the metals used in the alloys are not present on Earth, however the concept is similar to the way molybdenum is used with steel, itself created from iron. Titanium, magnesium and aluminum are parts of the process but there are other materials and metals unknown on Earth.
Doors and hatches are made of identical materials in the same process, held in place by internal artificial atmospheric pressure pressing outward.
2. As we said, titanium, magnesium aluminum and some other materials, which are not what humans call metal and are unknown on Earth; many are common and typical. There are several types of both manufacturing process and material composition.
4. Understand and accept that magnetism and gravity are the same force.
A good long one, too which I will not get to see. My patch of Earth will be over the horizon when the Moon enters Earth's shadow. Specifically, what bad, negative or wonderful things might, will or could occur? Will the world end? Yes, the previous sentence was a joke. "No, nothing will end as a result of this eclipse." says The Committee.
The Earth will pass between the Moon and the Sun, both sides of "La Luna" going dark while it passes through Earth's shadow. Watch out, lunatics....(yes, that word comes from strange behavior caused during full moons.)
I'd really like to be on the Moon's surface to watch the sun disappear and re-emerge, perched on the rim of crater Copernicus, but....
There is a belief that alignment of planets increases effects of gravitational pull and thus likelihood of geophysical events on Earth. The Committee says, "The gravitational effects are constant, and vary based on mass and proximity, not position, however the directions of pull can trigger effects when they become oriented at 180 degrees from one another."
"This eclipse will not generate sufficient forces to provoke material geophysical events, in the Earth month of July in this Earth year of two thousand eighteen. The alignment of several planets also does not cause this, because of the distances and relative forces. As did not occur in your month of March.
"There will be more acute lunar effects on some humans and animals, apparently unrelated incidents which indeed are tied to and a common result of, the eclipse effects. It will not be possible to attach occurrences of strange, wild, reckless or deadly outbursts of behavior on the 27th and 28th of July to the eclipse, any more than lunar gravitational forces have always done.
"The build up to full moons plays a role in lunatic behavior, as this eclipse will last a far shorter time, this will lessen the peak effects; it will trigger less of the vulnerable among humans. The quick onset will build then relieve mental pressure more quickly, avoiding sharper than typical effects in most humans.
"If you feel, lethargic, agitated, sickly, upset, elated or otherwise different than normal over this 1 to 2 days period, it will pass as quickly as it arrived.
"Enjoy the orange, you who might see it. Be well one and all.
According to TC, the hominin species we call Homo Habilis and Homo Erectus WERE the first "humanoids," created from a mixture of (ancestral) simian and alien DNA.
Q1. Are those the only "humanoid" species created by extraterrestrial visitors?
A: The DNA was not so ancestral, as this word is used and understood. It was the DNA available then, and is the same today.
Q2. Is the earlier genus that we call Australopithecus (which appears in the fossil record about 4-3.5 million years ago) excluded from this picture?
A: No, it is another variation of initial alien ET created humanoid and the timeline to which you refer is wildly inaccurate and far too long in the past of Earth timelines.
Q3. Were the Australopithecines evolved entirely from native earth species, or were they too created by extraterrestrial visitors?
A: Entirely created by alien ET visitors. They are not the product of evolution.
Allow us a brief explanation; the objective was function, not appearance. The vast majority of genes and chromosomes were left intact, the many which determine outward appearance, size, shape and all the other variations which occur in all species on Earth. The process of inheritance and random appearance based on the way genes mix, was left unaltered. The DNA mixture, modification and design changes were made in two ways; one to adapt the newly-to-be created beings to the environment by altering the DNA structure and latticework, to include the traits necessary for certain size, strength, stamina in the environmental conditions.
Many variations of other characteristics, unrelated to function, were left unaltered and to occur randomly. As you know, height is not a requirement for strength, and so forth.
Humans have today identified variations and deemed them species, when race is a far better description, in current human language use.
Cro Magnons and Neanderthals are generally regarded as two totally different species within the genus Homo--and they were by no means the only hominin species present on earth 100,000 years ago.
C: Yes, they were the only humanoid species and they are two versions of the same process. A Chevrolet and a Pontiac.
The Committee says that the hybridization, or genetic upgrade of existing humanoids (presumably Homo Erectus, since Homo Habilis appears to have gone extinct over 1 million years ago)….
C: There were no humanoids on Earth before a thousand centuries ago. Only simians, and what are now called sasquatch, big foot or yeti are evolved from them.
….occurred about 100,000 years ago all over Africa. Just Africa?
C: Just Africa, initially.
Q4. Did the hybridization involve ONLY Homo Erectus specimens, or were other "humanoid" species involved as well?
C: The different species humans today wish to identify as separate and manifesting along different timelines and intervals of Earth history, are simply variations of the first humanoids created. Simultaneously.
Q5. Were Neanderthals given genetic upgrades before they went extinct?
C: It is not accurate to say Neanderthals went extinct; they did not reproduce with the same DNA. When the upgrade decisions to DNA were made and applied, this was done to the ovoid and spermatozoa, so that their offspring would be the upgraded version. When the previous humanoid with the now obsolete DNA died a natural death, so did their type.
Q6. Approximately how many times have extraterrestrial visitors intervened in our natural evolution, from the creation of humanoids until today?
C: Twice, in macro terms. The individual interventions have been in the many thousands, as part of each process. The initial creation was not an intervention; the narural evolution of all other existing species was left intact.
Q7. Are they still intervening and modifying the human genome today--or have they done so over the past hundred years?
C: No, this has not been done for more than nine hundred ninety nine centuries.
