In the United States, and in many ways, the world, there is an existing interlocking power structure comprised of different elements or institutions: governments, military, corporations, religions and traditional science. With the various nations of the world as their chess board, they have operated in an ongoing manner for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, updated from days of empire and monarchy to at least the appearance of more democratic and egalitarian systems today.
The kind of mind and personality of those attracted to positions of authority in the halls of power within these institutions always bears watching by the populations they are ostensibly supposed to serve. The lure of power always carries with it the powerful temptation to abuse that power for personal gain. We have seen this recently in the Bush-Cheney administration in the U.S. The jury may still be out for many of us, cautiously hopeful perhaps, on the new Obama-Biden administration as it takes up the reins of leadership of a country that needs serious rebuilding. New bridges of trust must be rebuilt with the rest of a suspicious world still aghast at the abuses of power of the Bush-Cheney era, which include wars of aggression un-ratified by Congress, the use of torture and flagrant corporate war profiteering.
In the U.S. and the world, even with the newborn Obama administration and the positive changes he has vowed to make, the world’s institutions still exist filled with groups and individuals that are loathe to relinquish the power that will make true positive change possible. So if the Obama administration wants to enact positive change, they will have to grapple with the existing powers-that-be in the military, corporate and even ecclesiastical hierarchies.
Sentience and glimpses of a new underlying reality
Philosophers and thinkers of today could make a good argument that humanity as a collective species is only just now beginning to pass into a meaningful version of sentience. It would not seem sentient for a species to have such a lack of vision or limited view of the world around it to – without thought for the future – consume with little restraint and pass laws that allow the ongoing exploitation and destruction of capital, non-renewable natural resources without proper management of those resources to provide for future generations.
The first line of text in the Wikipedia definition of sentience is: “The ability to feel or perceive subjectively.” Yet we are just now emerging from a reductionist world-view where everything is “objectively” studied as so many discrete parts that incidentally may happen to construct a larger mechanism. Questions of consciousness, soul were shrugged off as unknowable or improbable. This mechanized view of the universe was devoid of any acknowledgment of the underlying energy make-up, perhaps because if people can be induced to believe that all they are is skin and meat wrapped around a skeletal structure, they can be frightened into compliance with any number of institutional agendas. So therefore, those who can control our perceptions, beliefs and emotions… control us.
An energy structure now emerging as very real is the study of quantum mechanics, where when we observe something it appears as a particle, i.e., an actual thing or object, but when we are not observing it, it exists as an energy wave of potentiality of wherever consciousness and intention direct it next time it is “observed”. In laboratories where quantum science is studied, non-local phenomenon, where a direct influence of one object on another distant object, perhaps even in a separate container, occurs in support of an interconnected, even intelligent, universe.

So, perhaps the native and indigenous people’s world view has been correct all along, that there is an underlying “spirit” to the entire world we see around us, a dreamtime world as the aboriginals of Australia believe. And the greater implication of this is that there may be no such thing as “objective, empirical observation” in the purest sense. When a scientist formulates a hypothesis of what he thinks may be true, then tests that hypothesis in the laboratory doing his very best to devise the controls on the experiments that will yield impartial results. In the reductionist world of 3D Newtonian physics, we can rely on such results at least up to a point. But if the quantum energy reality underlies it all, then any objective empirical study cannot ever be truly impartial. We must begin to accept that our beliefs, perceptions and feelings about the world we see through our own eyes shapes the world we see. Carl Jung’s collective unconscious, which attempted to explain similarities cross-culturally around the world, from population to population, may be the method by which we all make manifest and participate in a world that is familiar to us all.
So what to extraterrestrials have to do with any of this? Because by so very many accounts today, UFOs, or extraterrestrial craft, seem to exhibit a mastery of quantum science and multi-dimensionality inherent in these sciences now in their infancy on Earth. Even abductees and contactees talk of telepathy, astral or other dimensional travel. What might contact mean with beings who have a mastery of multi-dimensional abilities? Would they awaken those possibly now-dormant abilities in us? What if opening to and developing even a beginning understanding of quantum mechanics and the reality of multiple dimensions is a criteria for contact? What if seeing the underlying interconnectedness of the multi-verse itself opens the door to beings that inhabit these other realms?

If these beings know how to apply quantum mechanics in a technological way, then they may also know how to apply this knowledge consciously and biologically. It is possible (as written about in “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda about Indian saints and spiritual adepts that could bi-locate) that these advanced beings could travel by the power of thought alone, but use space craft for traveling to free their mental concentration energy for other tasks.
Hierarchical institutions and the wild card of extraterrestrial contact
The multi-dimensional or extra-dimensional reality that would accompany extraterrestrial contact is a wild card that would likely throw the hierarchical power-based structures of this planet into chaos. The institutions of this world have been made real and solid by hundreds of years of those holding power manipulating and coercing us to believe in and trust their voices of authority over our own innate feelings and intuitive perceptions. Keeping us off-balance with emotionally charged words and actions rooted in organizations that play upon carefully-constructed-over-the-ages consensus reality, these hierarchical systems have the power to push unaware populations this way and that through religious beliefs, misguided forms of patriotism and contrived societal-cultural ideas of right and wrong. These institutions have held power through being able to convince us to trust their versions of how the world should work instead of trusting our inner natures and feelings of resonance or dissonance of energy – our own sense of the underlying field of what makes up our material world.
Open public contact with extraterrestrials, coming into the midst of such hierarchical power structures, threatens them with collapse or at the very least a complete restructuring. It is no wonder that the reality of an extraterrestrial presence or visitations has been kept under wraps. However today, our continued collective survival as a species may depend upon returning to an understanding of the energy or “spirit” inherent in all creation, animate and inanimate, supported by the new discoveries in quantum science. It may be this new way of looking at our world and how interconnected we are with every part of it that helps us to throw off the restrictions of the hierarchical power structures in time to write a new story of life on our planet, one in which we develop the vision to see where we must put our energy and resources.
At such a point, two possible scenarios emerge. In the first, as we become more aware as a collective of quantum realities and a living conscious multi-dimensional Universe of which we are a part, we then must act in accord with that new belief and begin building a new world through our conscious intention, beginning by saying “No!” at last to the old. At that point we may become eligible for contact with evolved, benevolent extraterrestrials, having begun to demonstrate a satisfactory level of sentience. In the other, full open contact occurs and major change is a consequence of that contact – actually facilitating and hastening a new level of sentient collective consciousness in humanity as the veils are lifted on who we truly are in relation to other life in the cosmos.
