Dr. Michael Salla is a pioneer in the development of exopolitics and known for revealing US government policies on ET life. In the first half, he discussed possible futures for space travel-- the optimal being a 'Star Trek' future involving countries with space programs collaborating in civil, military, and commercial affairs in space. Today, Space Force, the signing of the Artemis Accords, and the creation of NATO's Space Center could be the fulcrum for ushering in this Star Trek scenario. Currently, the primary responsibility of the Space Force is to protect America's GPS and the satellites of the Allied powers, he noted, but looking to the future, it could become more militarized depending on how countries like China behave in space.
However, Space Force could also be part of a multinational effort to collaborate on shared goals such as mining asteroids and colonizing places like Mars and the Moon. The Artemis Accords, signed in October 2020, move in this direction with a set bilateral of agreements between the US and seven other countries to set up a space alliance, he said. Salla suggested that Gene Roddenberry may have been assisted in coming up with the Star Trek concept as part of a disclosure initiative launched by the military or through a recruitment process by the "Galactic Federation" (a group of evolved aliens). He cited a remarkable similarity between the logo for Space Force and the fictional logo for Star Trek's 'Starfleet Command.'
Alan Steinfeld is a writer, producer, and speaker in the fields of human potential, metaphysics, conscious evolution, and spiritual awakening. In the latter half, he talked about the ramifications of UFOs and their occupants visiting our world and what to make of the outpouring of sightings and "contact" experiences reported on a global scale. In his new work, Making Contact, he gathered together original essays by luminaries in the ET/contact field, including Whitley Strieber, Linda Moulton Howe, John Mack, Grant Cameron, and JJ & Desiree Hurtak. By presenting various possibilities, "I leave it up to the reader to form their own opinion" about a complex phenomenon that at times can seem unfathomable, he remarked.
What is the mystery of the visitors and humanity itself? Steinfeld pondered, as he noted that some UFO phenomena relate to quantum physics. "I believe these [alien] beings are not of our reality,"-- they appear in our world but are not of it, and "they vibrate at a different rate of frequency." Further, he continued, when a person is in contact with the visitors, they are shifted to an altered state of awareness. "We have to practice lucid awareness" in order to meet these beings on equal ground, he advised. The late Prof. John Mack connected contact experiences with "other ways of knowing," which Steinfeld suggested could refer to shamanic practices or a kind of consciousness expansion. UFOs and contact are key to creating a new avenue for understanding who we are, he added.
