The argument has been made that “If extraterrestrials existed, they would let themselves be known”. While this argument can be popular among many, it lacks an understanding of the factors involved and therefore doesn’t give insight into the reason why they don’t. In turn, this argument usually seeks to dismiss any discussion or anyone who looks to go beyond the box of one’s beliefs.
Look at the Earth today, with the current number of nations and the different types of governments. As a whole, look at the conflicts we have between countries. Then look at the conflicts we have within each individual country’s borders. We have many different ideologies that lead to disagreements, and conflicts. We have wars based on selfish efforts to overpower others for one’s own agenda. We have many organizations and groups that have their own agendas based on affecting others’ lives according to the most powerful groups decisions. This is the very real situation on the whole Earth.
No country, government or group is immune to this or free from some nations, groups or factions displaying this behavior or other efforts made to gain control or have power over someone else. As long as there are individuals and governments who seek their own agendas over the good of all, this will happen. We are very aware of this here in the U.S. since we’ve seen it play out in our own society.
Take a look at the technological leaps we’ve made in the last 100 years. We’ve gained nuclear power, computer technology, cellular phones, and the list goes on almost forever. None of these have “saved” mankind of been made to be free from the agendas of those who greedily seek financial or political power over others. Instead technology still also gets used to serve the quest for greater power and more deadly weapons. We can see examples where the hunger for more power and weapons grows still.
In addition, the craving for energy sources is great as well. We have over 7 billion people on the planet and will have 8 billion in a decade. We’ll move towards 9 billion after that. Looking down the road, our energy needs will be way more that they are today. The effort to get that energy to sell to consumers will be greater, also.
What do you think will happen when another (albeit, FRIENDLY) civilization comes forth that has technology and energy sources far more useful or powerful than our own?
In general, each country, each nation, each governing body, each corporation, each industry will be clambering for the technology and energy sources. On the whole, with current human thinking, the clamor and acquisition for the best technology means making the most money. With current human thinking, the race to get the energy sources ET’s have won’t bring different people’s into cooperation, but rather, more likely into more fighting. That is what is happening now. The level of technology and energy which non-Earth civilizations would bring – would trigger even greater conflict and even worse wars, because the fighting for these would continue. After all, wars have been the ways for many to accomplish getting what one wants, in the past. The motto, “Use what works.” is still alive on this planet.
Right now, the effort to get the technology and energy wouldn’t unite humans. Look at what nuclear capability brought. It did not unite peoples. Look at what computer technology has brought. There are still great imbalances among the different nations of the world – and how to disseminate and control that technology. Look at oil, electricity and the like. The struggle among humans for power over others still goes on even with the advances in technology and energy.
Those that are from other planets, or rather, those with benevolent intentions from other planets, don’t seek to get in the middle of the conflicts we have here on Earth. They know that their technologies and energies could lead to even greater conflict with the tug-o-wars that would happen. Governments would demand their share of technologies in the name of “keeping the balance of power” with many going to war to maintain this balance. Even greater wars than we’ve ever had, could happen.
Greater technologies will never be what saves humankind from our self and our own selfishness. We have much evolution to go through, yet. We can only be that which, and who, we are. Currently, all across the planet, we are still the humans that we are.
The day is coming that people from other planets make their presence known publicly. But, today, the human race as a whole is not where we need to be in order to avoid making a conflictual situation even worse.
No benevolent race of beings wants their arrival to destroy the people they come to “visit”. The human race, with its conflictual behaviors, and examples in history of the human drive to conquer rather than coexist, plus today’s examples of abusive behaviors to life here on Earth – and our not having the full collective will to stop the abuse – all point to this time in our lives not being when they should make themselves known.
Until that day comes, they may make themselves known to individuals or to small groups. They may make themselves known in secret. They may make themselves known as rumors and half-believed stories. They may make themselves known in ways that only a few believe are real. But, much has to happen among the human race before they make themselves known publicly to all people and all nations as visitors from another star system.

America is very big on religions. In fact, sometimes it’s as if we turn everything into a religion when the opportunity arises. Instead of saying “I don’t understand how it could be true, but I’m open to it being possible” so many of us say, “It’s not part of my beliefs – what I’ve gotten from sources (including religions), therefore it’s not true.” What religions am I referring to? I’m referring to everything that enters the mind of Man -including the religion of politics, the religion of science, the religion of medicine, the religion of technology, psychology, philosophy, and even mathematics! (Yes, I’m even including Atheism – but that’s easy to see.)
Have you heard someone say either of these – the equivalent of words that mean “It’s not part of the science that I know of, therefore I don’t believe it.” or “It’s not part of the medical knowledge that I know of, therefore there’s no way it can be possible.” I have. Then, all we have to do is exchange the words ‘science’ for ‘religion’ and vice versa, and we recognize the comment.
In fact, at times we’ve even heard the equivalent of “You believing differently than this is you being gullible, misguided, delusional, or outright fraudulent.”
This is widespread, and it shows that the person saying something to this effect has turned their beliefs and knowledge into a religion.
We’ve heard so often when people have said the equivalent to “It’s not part of my religious beliefs, therefore I don’t believe it-therefore you shouldn’t either, because only my beliefs are the truth.” We see examples of this in the U.S. and all around the world.
We also have people who have turned science, medicine and all the rest into religions, as well. Yet, it’s not just a current happening. This very process has been part of mankind for millennium.
Instead of considering that it’s our own knowledge and understanding that falls short, we tend to carry out the religious ritual of pointing to others saying the equivalent to “You’re wrong to believe differently than me. My knowledge may as well be sacred.”
Since this is very easy to see when looking at history, we don’t think of it as being a current process in our society. But, it’s happening now just as often as it ever has been. It’s just that we don’t think to put it in the context of science, medicine, technology or the rest, during today’s time. Too bad, because these have been religions for a long time. It always been the heretics of these “religions” that put forth the idea that “there is something beyond what we believe is true.” (Heretics like the Wright Brothers and Albert Einstein who pursued what others believed wasn’t true, and oh, yeah – Jesus Christ.)
Yet, bridging what we know and what we don’t know has been a tremendously difficult bridge to build. Why? Because both sides of the bridge have held strongly to that which we know or believe to be possible only, and fought hard against that which we don’t know and don’t believe being possible.
It is rare that people speaking for religions ever make the comment “My beliefs are beliefs, not necessarily proven facts.” It is rare that science or medicine or even technology ever make the comment, “We’ve found this small part to be true, but we don’t know if it could also be false or if anything else in opposition to this or outside this paradigm that we’ve never conceptualized is true or not.”
It is rare that people entrenched in their beliefs say, “I don’t know how my beliefs can mesh with opposing beliefs, opposing knowledge, factual science, but I’m open to both being true somehow.” It’s rare when people representing science and medicine say, “I don’t know how things we haven’t proven may possibly be true, but I’m open to they being possible.”
Instead, we get, people saying “Science is the truth and anything else is a delusion.” We get, people saying “This medical information is true and anything else is fraud.” We get people saying, “My religious beliefs are true, and I won’t consider anything else possible.”
The Saving Grace
The world doesn’t revolve around any persons or groups who may be stuck in their own religion whether it’s traditional religions, Scientific, Medical, Technological or any other belief or knowledge system. The Earth is inhabited by more heretics than fanatics – more open minded people than close-minded people. These heretics are saying, “There’s more than what you espouse to be true. You have no belief or knowledge that is omniscient and complete. ” Thank God.
PS. Can you see how Politics has become a religion? How about how “beliefs about money” has become a Religion?

“With God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
The prototypes for hydrogen fueled cars are already being seen. But…
This direction for vehicles is not going to be the direction that manufacturers go. Hydrogen will get a lot of support for the next 15 years before it starts to lose its support and resources. By 2030, hydrogen fueled cars will be a novelty and not seen often.
Electric cars are the future – especially in the U.S. This is the technology that will be supported and pursued by the public and by manufacturers. So, if you’re a hydrogen fuel fan, go ahead and buy one if they ever come out at all, but plan on putting it on display or parking it when the technology although touted, falls way short of what Madison Avenue says.
By 2030, 1/3 to 1/2 the new cars on the roads will be electric and electric hybrids. Since this is only 17 years away, expect gasoline powered vehicles to still be around (1/2 to 2/3rds.) Why will they still be around? Because the economy will be such that most people won’t be able afford to buy new vehicles.
As the decade of the 2030’s closes, the economy will get better. Before then, though, I see a slow decline for the economy.
Whether the future has good times or bad, the most important time for doing something helpful is Now.
The news is saying the price of food is going to increase. It’s true.
What the news hasn’t mentioned is that the price of food is going to go up for the next 4 years. Each year from 2012 to 2016, we will see the prices at the supermarkets increase from the previous year’s prices. While some will say we can consider this normal inflation, what we’ll see won’t be normal at all.
I encourage people to once again begin gardening to grow some of their own vegetables. We may not be able to grow all our food, but we can offset some of the steady rise in prices that is coming. Check out youtube.com to see all the creative ways people are growing their own food. Our creativity is only limited by our own willingness or unwillingness. If you need help with creativity, ask God to be creative through you. Remember, an infinite God has infinite creativity, and infinite creativity creates infinitely.
There was a great deal of information that came out in the 1960’s through the 1980’s and then in the 1990’s about possible land shifts and earth changes related to California. In the Edgar Cayce readings, California is spoken about also.
But, while many people are speaking about Cayce’s predictions, few are speaking about what he said about his own predictions. He said first that these things will happen “if all things stay the same.” This means if humanity continues along its path of behavior, thought and feelings, the predictions based on these behaviors, thoughts and feelings will come to pass. If humanity changes its behavior, thought and feelings, the predictions (the future) will be changed, also.
Change is what humanity has done. Many millions have heard the call of Spirit and acted in line with the healing that comes with, “Love God above all else and love you’re neighbor as yourself.” So, why does it surprise so many people when the earth changes don’t happen exactly as predicted? Probably because so little is understood about the real way that spirituality and the energy of spirituality through prayer and meditation have an effect on humanity and human life, as well as how the act of predicting and the psychic mechanism work within the individual.
First, to make it short, prayer and meditation do impact the energy of manifestation guiding the form and scenario of how circumstantial events play out. It is the energy of the individual and group consciousnesses being sent out influencing energy that has been sent out previously and now returning.
Secondly, decades of misunderstanding of psychic ability and principles are both behind us as well as still ahead of us. It won’t be until the last decade of this century that psychic ability and predicting is more readily understood – 80 years away.
Looking at the land itself from today on, if all things stay the same and if mankind continues on the time-line we are on………
The actual borders of California will not change in major ways. There will be minor, minor changes related to some increased erosion of small amounts of cliff areas along the coast line in the central Cal area. This small amounts of erosion of small areas of cliff-lines comes from weakening land structure of hundreds of small earthquakes eventually taking it’s toll on parts of the underground, deep foundation structure. The shaking of central California over time creates a type of characteristic that I can only call “looseness” of the substructure underground.
With regards to earthquakes, in southern California, I’m not seeing a super major earthquake in California for several years and that could change to be longer.
a. I see a possible 4.3-4.4 in the middle of October, 2009. It could be as small as a 3.3 or 3.4.
b. Many small ones through 2009 less than 4.0
c. The largest in Nov, 2009, will be 3.5, if it reaches that high.
d. In Jan, 2010, a 4.5 as the largest possible. But, I think it will come in around 3.7 or 3.8.
e. One more before July, 2010
f. August -Dec, 2010, rather quiet unless…
g. If a 5.0 happens in 2010, it will happen in Aug/Sept time period
h. No 6 or 7 pointers in 2010.
i. in 2011, I see a possible reaching up to 6.0 to 6.3 in the winter/spring months – Feb, or Mar. This will be extremely deep and may not be very destructive. It could be as small as another 4.0 though. I think it will come in at around 4.8.
j. In 2012, besides the fear of drastic events, I don’t see a lot happening. Very similar to 2009 and 2010. I do see one possibility, though, for a 6.5 occurring close to the surface and spreading throughout southern California, north of Pasadena and San Bernadino. While it could potentially reach a 6.5, I think it will come in at 4.5 to 5.5.
k. The sizes of these depends a lot on the sizes of many of the others that precede them. With small earthquakes, some pressure is released that avoids large earthquakes.
l. I see a potential 7.0 in 2013. Ask me again about this before we get there.
Again, I’m not seeing a super earthquake in southern Cal in the next 4 years. Just many, mostly small, (like normally happens) and a few of them larger than normal.
Fires will be like they have been before, and every year for the next 10 years. Around 2017/2018, there will be “something” that causes an extremely low number of fires. I think it will be a super amount of rain throughout the southern 75% of the state. Rain – all the time in that year.
During the 2017 and 2018, there will also be better ways of fighting fires and keeping fires from starting (beginning in 2015) – some procedures and technology that work to protect the land and trees as a preventative measure. (This could either be the rain or it could be a widespread effort to try new “technology”.)
Water for southern Cal will be one of the serious issues that officials will have to deal with. Weather is more affected by humans than realized.
a. Steps are in place to ensure water for SoCal for the next 4 years, but after 2013, it will become more difficult to get for the southern part of the state.
b. A deal with Nevada to happen in 2013 will help So. Cal., but it will cost Cal more than ever before.
c. 2010 will be below normal rainfall level
d. 2011 will start off appearing to be a rainy year but will not provide enough to equal the deficit.
e. Rainfall can be helped through prayer for healthier weather patterns.
f. 2012 will actually be a very rainy winter and spring. Some rain at the beginning of the summer.
g. Each year’s weather is affected or influenced by the previous years weather.
h. Nevada’s weather will not be like California’s and their desire to hold onto their water will be why the cost to Cal will be higher.
i. 2013 is looking like a drought year at the moment.
Southern Cal’s economy will steadily continue okay with little slow down.
a. 2009 has seen some tough troubles, but 2010 will be the time that SoCal climbs out of the hole with effort and struggle.
b. 2011 will be better than 2010, because there will be some noticeable changes in the business of doing business in Southern California. This will take the form of new innovations in industry and new businesses that weren’t developed much until the economy tanked. New ways of doing business for some big money players, and new businesses that spring forth because now is the time for them.
c. More investing will come from Southern Calif in 2011. Not as much yet as were during 2007 or 2008, but better than ’09 and ’10.
2012 will see a few delays in the recovery and some metaphorical “potholes”, but the year will not be considered worse than 2011, just about the same.
d. 2013 will bring new hope, and a renewed sense of “let’s get to work and do this.”
e. Starting in 2013, the economic problems for Southern Cal will be behind them and steady progress and increase in the years ahead until some problems slow things in 2017 or 2018.
f. Again, regular economic progress from 2013 to 2017 or 18 before a slow down.
g. For Southern Cal, the economy will seem to be dragging from 2018 to about late 2021.
a. No real influential technological improvements for 2009 affecting Southern Cal.
b. 2011 will bring some technological improvements which will be innovations that enter the market.
c. In 2012 the bugs come forth – technologically speaking. I see much frustration with electronics and supposed improvements – things not working on the personal level. But, this is not so much technology but the natural forces acting upon the technology bringing out the vulnerabilities which our technology has. This will pertain to cell phone problems, some major computer networking problems, some electricity overload problems. Natural forces pushing stronger and greater magnetic fields into and influencing the systems and overloading them. Not all systems everywhere, but a handful of major systems by some of the big companies.
d. The problems will mostly be worked out by the end of the spring, 2013.
e. These problems won’t be avoided because there is not an understanding of the forces that will be affecting these technological systems.
What did I forget?
In looking at this right now, I look for the events and their strength of energy level that would bring them about. There are some events which have high/strong levels and some that have low/weak levels of energy for manifesting. That is why the future can be changed by human beings. Humans sent energy out in times past bringing or influencing events that happen today. Human energy sent out today can influence the human energy coming from past sending out. This is in the same vein and hence why it’s true when John 4:18 says, “Perfect love casteth out fear.” The energy we send out now (best done via prayer and meditation) can influence the energy we sent out previously.
The Social Security system will continue as is, until about 2015 when they open it up to include private investing. A small amount of opening it up will occur in 2008, but it will only be a minor change. Private investing and retirement accounts will eventually become the primary source of retirement income by 2027-8, we’ll see it become #1 with SSI becoming #2 based on funds amounts. It will start in 2015 but will take about 14 years before the mainstream population are using this method. Without major reform, by 2040, most people will see the writing on the wall for SSI even existing in any form, and by 2060, the SS system will be relatively useless. It’s possible that by 2065, the SS system will end all together, or it will be revamped to become an “also ran” secondary system rather than the primary system as it is today. In a sense, at that time, it will be for those that would like the govt. to be their retirement fund banker. (Added 8/10/05)
