My Search for ET Intelligence has led to Sikkim, India
A young man in Northern India claims to be in telepathic contact with multiple ET civilizations. Is he legit? If so, what are they trying to tell us?
My investigation into the “ET phenomenon” has led me to believe that contact with ET intelligence will most likely happen telepathically, if at all. If it is happening, humanity may have a way around governments and legacy media and their half-truths.
I have been following the work of a young man who lives in the North East corner of India who believes he is in regular communication with several ExtraTerrestrial civilizations. I recently spoke with him. Our recorded conversation is linked at the end of this article.
The subject matter of this piece can be fascinating, provocative or potentially offensive depending on your world view and those things which you hold as sacred. The mere existence of intelligent, non-human conscious beings is at odds with the tenets of some of our widely held religious doctrines. Moreover, what they seem to be saying, at least through this telepathic channel, challenges conventional history and our assumptions of who we are and where we may be going.
My ideas around the subject matter of this piece cannot be proven given our current tools of observation. But neither can they be disproven.
Although I have frequently explored topics that are based in what we could call an “objective reality”, this substack is fundamentally about harnessing our intuition, an ability we all possess but are often unable to access because of our biases and preconditioning.
I have spent a lot of time in school. And I am in the same predicament as the rest of the people on this planet. How are we supposed to know what is really going on if we have to rely on third parties to inform us about nearly everything that is happening? How do we know who to trust?
This is the question that I attempted to answer in my book, “WOKE. An Anesthesiologist’s View”. Our situation is not hopeless. We each do, in fact, possess an internal compass that can help us negotiate the spin, propaganda and outright lies.
My suggested approach is to first recognize where we may be biased. But it is not easy or even possible for a mind to recognize its own biases. It is akin to seeing one’s blindspots. However, an important clue is to notice where our inquiry into a topic gets shut down early and ask ourselves why that might be.
Next, it is essential that we become tolerant of uncertainty. It’s our need to be sure that often keeps us mired in the ruts of our thinking. Once liberated from our biases and the need for certainty we can access our intuition, a power that I believe is self-emergent once these barriers are removed.
I have found that by using these two principles my mind has opened to a new world of possibilities. I invite you to try it for yourself here and see where it leads.
Extraterrestrials on Earth
I grew up in the seventies and eighties. By the age of ten I had read every book about astronomy in our school’s library. While my friends had stats of their favorite MLB players memorized, I was able to regurgitate the orbital periods of the (then nine) planets, their distance from the sun and how many moons they each had. Nobody would ever ask me to do such a thing so I would do so unprompted. I wasn’t the most popular kid on the playground.
Later I stumbled upon the series “Cosmos” on public TV. I was mesmerized by Carl Sagan’s description of the very big all the way down to the microscopic. With regard to intelligent life outside of our beautiful planet, Sagan stated the obvious: it was absurd to think that we were alone. The universe is too vast and our technology to probe the universe should be considered rudimentary at best—if we were able to drop our exaggerated sense of our capabilities.
Sagan dreamed of a future when we could voyage to the stars using hypothetical spaceships, one such could use hydrogen bombs detonated against an inertial plate which would propel the ship at near light-speed. Interstellar astronauts could putt-putt-putt their way out of the solar system to the nearest stars in under a decade.
I dreamed of being on such a spaceship back then. These days I have become a home-body, content to explore my ideations from my kitchen.
The point is that if we can envision such an interstellar spacecraft today, why should we think that such technology would be outside the capability of another civilization that was, say, a million years ahead of us? Isn’t it likely that there are civilizations like that out there, and if there were, shouldn’t they have stopped by a few times over the years?
My interest in astronomy guided me to my first job after college. I rejected offers to work on Wall Street to take a position with McDonnell-Douglas Space Systems Co. in 1988. As a young engineer I was given the task of generating quarterly reports for our client, NASA, to ensure that our design for the International Space Station was flexible enough to accommodate new technologies as they emerged.
It seemed like a great fit for me, an Electrical Engineer with a love for space exploration. I soon found out that the job was ideally suited for a person that enjoyed parsing through huge documents and spitting out technical writing. I left after a year and abandoned my childhood interest for a while.
Thirty years later, I became acquainted with the work of Dr. Steven Greer, founder of the Sirius Disclosure Project. Over several years Greer recorded testimony from dozens of military witnesses who claimed they had witnessed and interacted with Extraterrestrial intelligence, most often decades earlier. “Authentic” experiences all had a few key elements in common:
The spacecraft moved soundlessly, with no hint of any propulsion systems.
The spacecraft moved in a non-linear fashion, dropping out of sight and reappearing a great distance away instantly.
The witnesses recounted their experience in the same way. They were young at the time of the encounter and were threatened with severe retribution if they opened their mouths. Decades later they were willing to come forward in the hope that humanity would become aware of the intense secrecy around this very real phenomenon.
It is obvious that one’s standard of proof around this topic is extremely variable. For some, an image or shaky video of a light in the sky would suffice. For others, being “abducted” themselves would be quickly attributed to a period of psychosis rather than an actual encounter with beings from another star system.
Though my training as an engineer and doctor biased me towards measurable, reproducible evidence, paradoxically I found the testimony of the whistleblowers most compelling. Even if I were given a piece of an alien spaceship how would I ever be able to confirm that it originated from outside the Earth? On what basis would I trust anyone who confirmed that it did or didn’t?
Greer’s whistleblowers independently witnessed the same sorts of things. Their sightings were corroborated by radar findings. They had little to gain by sharing their story. I couldn’t confirm that what they saw was truly flying saucers from Arcturus but I was pretty sure they weren’t lying. If they weren’t lying how can we explain how ships can move like that?
Where to go from here?
In 1972 astronomer and UFO researcher, J. Allen Hynek, published “The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry” in which he describes “kinds” of close encounters. Hynek served as the chief scientific advisor to the US Airforce’s “Project BlueBook", a two decades long investigation into UFOs. He also advised filmmaker Steven Spielberg during the production of his iconic movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”.
Hynek describes his scale of close encounters like this:
An encounter of the first kind (CE1) is a visual sighting within 500 meters. The second kind (CE2) requires there to be some measurable evidence of the spacecraft. The “third” kind (CE3) are encounters where animated entities are present.
Later, others described a fourth kind: abductions.
Dr. Greer believes that there is a fifth kind: human initiated contact. How would someone initiate contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence?
Answer: Through meditation, preferably in a large group where collective desire and sincere intention can be magnified. True communication is possible, he suggests, through our own directed consciousness, which, at some level, is shared by every entity in the universe. How else can beings capable of interstellar travel communicate with each other? A radio transmission propagating through space takes hours to traverse the distance to the outer planets of our own solar system. There must be a faster way.
Greer takes interested individuals out into remote places where there is little interference from city lights where his “CE5 protocol” can be done most effectively. “Come and see for yourself”, he invites.
In the spring of 2018, I decided to see for myself. After five long evenings spent under the stars in the desert armed with Infrared goggles, cameras, recording equipment, telescopes and satellite charts I returned more baffled than ever. We saw stuff that I couldn’t explain. It certainly seemed to show up at our behest, but nothing appeared that would convince an open-minded skeptic.
A few months later, my wife joined Greer on another CE5 expedition. She had a similar experience. However, while there she met another attendee who, noticing her uncertainty, suggested that she look into something called “The Law of One”.
The Law of One
The Law of One is a philosophical treatise that was purportedly channeled through 105 separate sessions in the early 1980’s. The medium, or channel, was a woman named Carla Rueckert, who had become adept at entering a “trance” state, offering her consciousness as a conduit for a two way communication between the questioner, Don Elkins, and a highly advanced, ET civilization that called itself “Ra”.
Is it possible that ET intelligence has been in contact with humanity telepathically? If so, it would offer us a potential means of circumventing the intense security and distortions imposed by our authorities who have clearly demonstrated that they have little desire or inclination to shoot straight with the rest of us, especially around this topic. It is for that reason alone that I believed it would be worthwhile to take a closer look before dismissing it out of hand.
It turns out that the Law of One is the most profound body of information that I have ever encountered. It’s a doctoral thesis in metaphysics. It offers a very different version of our history, one that proposes that humanity has not only suffered at the hands of a few who have consolidated vast amounts of power and influence but has been misled around the truth of human potential and existing technologies.
The Law of One is so named because Ra, who claims to be speaking for an entire civilization billions of years ahead of us in its evolution, states that there is only one thing that can be taken as axiom: the universe is infinite, it is conscious and it is singular. This means that we are all not just connected, we are a part of an infinite intelligence that is all encompassing.
This idea is not unique to the Law of One. In philosophical terms this is called non-duality, a framework that is often considered heretical in most monotheistic religions that separate creator from creation, God from human. To many, imperfect human beings claiming to possess divine attributes and limitless possibilities is blasphemous. We may also understand why a certain few would be interested in suppressing such ideas whether or not they were true.
To me, this perspective is not so “alien”. This concept is deeply embedded in Advaita, the non-dual school of Vedanta, which I was exposed to in my formative years through my father. It is also the central view of Tantra, another system of thought which emerged from the Indus valley 15 centuries ago.
I have explored Tantra—the philosophy in totality, not the narrow and often distorted aspect that emphasizes sexual techniques which we hear about in the West—through the writings and teachings of my friend and Oxford/UC Berkeley trained philosopher and scholar of Indian Classical Religions, Christopher Wallis, who authored two remarkable books which I have studied, “Tantra Illuminated” and “The Recognition Sutras” (Wallis also has written a brand new book, “Near Enemies of the Truth”).
The two philosophies are in fact so closely matched that one must ask, are they of the same origin?
Ra explains that other ET civilizations have also been attempting to convey The Law of One over the millennia through various contacts around the world. Scholars of Tantra admit that the origins of the philosophy are unclear, but it is generally accepted that Tantra was “divinely transmitted”. What does this mean exactly?
I do not intend to summarize a philosophical system of such depth and breadth in a substack post. However I wish to offer a few tidbits from this body of work. Here is how Ra introduces Don Elkins to the concept of non-duality in the very first of 105 separate sessions:
“Consider, if you will, that the universe is infinite. This has yet to be proven or disproven, but we can assure you that there is no end to your selves, your understanding, what you would call your journey of seeking, or your perceptions of the creation.
That which is infinite cannot be many, for many-ness is a finite concept. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. You have seen simple examples of unity. You have seen the prism which shows all colors stemming from the sunlight. This is a simplistic example of unity.
In truth there is no right or wrong. There is no polarity for all will be, as you would say, reconciled at some point in your dance through the mind/body/spirit complex which you amuse yourself by distorting in various ways at this time. This distortion is not in any case necessary. It is chosen by each of you as an alternative to understanding the complete unity of thought which binds all things. You are not speaking of similar or somewhat like entities or things. You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every event, every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are. This is the Law of One.”
Right away, the reader is confronted with much to consider:
To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity??
This is a statement worthy of some contemplation. Infiniteness is only possible if all is one, otherwise there will be limits if there is more than one “thing”. Hence, many-ness is a finite concept.
In truth there is no right or wrong??
This is an entirely baffling if not reprehensible idea for those who feel that a world without right or wrong would result in widespread depravity. Of course there is right and wrong! There is so much evil on the planet!
This seemingly bizarre idea can only be reconciled if one accepts that ultimately, all is one. Who is the victim and who is the perpetrator if they are the same? If morality demands the perpetrator suffer punishment, how would the victim be spared yet more torment?
We can see that the seemingly innocuous concept of non-duality leads to massive implications when followed to its logical conclusion. Ra asks us to consider how would we conduct ourselves if all is One. This is the choice that we as individuals will have to make sooner or later if we wish to evolve spiritually. Evolution is a spiritual journey, not a biological or technological one.
Some civilizations choose one way of living with each other. Others, a much different way. Ultimately the choice is ours. There is no right or wrong, but in order to move forward, one has to commit to a path. Vacillating between charity and selfishness is what keeps us going in circles—according to Ra.
But accepting or rejecting all of this is not required at any given time because, as Ra says, “...all will be, as you would say, reconciled at some point in your dance through the mind/body/spirit complex which you amuse yourself by distorting in various ways at this time.”
This last point is fascinating. According to this philosophy, life is not a battle against evil within or outside of us; it is not dukkha (what Buddhist’s call unsatisfactoriness) nor is life a precarious stroll upon a tightrope between heaven and interminable hell. It is a dance. Life, which we experience as the infinite “distorting” itself into believing and living in separation, is done for its own amusement. It is generally how we as individuals experience life prior to real inquiry. This is another central concept in Tantric philosophy.
Before rejecting all of this as hogwash or a way of tempting people to sin, it is worthwhile to acknowledge that this perspective is internally consistent if accepted in totality. It is for this reason that I read all 105 sessions. Then I reread them. Then I read them again.
Elkins did not just limit his queries to existence and morality. He probed Ra around the origin of Judaism and Christianity. He asked about various people in our history from Moses and Albert Schweitzer to Ghengis Khan and Rasputin. He asked about the Great Pyramid of Giza (how was it built and for what purpose?). He asked about cattle mutilations and Bigfoot.
Elkins was a pilot and a professor of physics. He asked Ra if physicists were using the appropriate number of dimensions to describe space-time. He asked about the nature of light and gravity. He asked Ra what was the biggest impediment to humanity’s evolution.
The answers would come through Carla immediately, methodically and elegantly (you can read the full transcript and listen to the original audio recording of all the sessions here). Ra made sincere efforts to not lead Don Elkins in anyway. They made themselves available to answer questions, not to preach. Occasionally Ra would subtly indicate that a given line of questioning was unimportant. Ra was most interested in guiding Don Elkins towards matters that were of relevance to the human spirit and its evolution.
In the end one cannot know with any certainty whether The Law of One is accurate or whether Ra is who they claim to be. Upon studying the material closely and with an open mind I could only conclude that if Carla was actually channelling something outside of her, whatever it was possessed intelligence large enough to find our language limiting.
2021: A channeler appears in Sikkim, India
I had spent quite some time annotating this body of philosophy to write another book, what was to be a comparative examination of The Law of One and Tantra. Then, two years ago, my wife discovered something astonishing. Someone on YouTube was posting videos claiming that they were channeling Ra again, forty years later.
This time the channel was a young man from northern India. He was videotaping his sessions and posting them online. His name is Shyam Sarma (he goes by the name “Sam The Illusionist”). I was immediately struck by the consistency of the information he was channelling with The Law of One. Even more compelling was the use of similar syntax and vocabulary. Who else refers to people as “mind/body/spirit complexes”?
Sam is presently channelling Ra and other purported ET civilizations several times a week. He asks them about much more contemporary topics. What is the intent behind the World Economic Forum? What really happened in Maui? Why did Elon Musk rename Twitter?
The responses all have one thing in common: the entity speaking through Sam always begins by imploring the listener to only accept ideas that resonate with one’s heart and intuition and to reject the rest. Isn’t that the only way to compassionately guide another?
Sam has an intriguing story. He was earning money as a street magician for some time and then began toying with hypnosis, entertaining even larger impromptu crowds. One evening, in the privacy of his bedroom, he listened to a recording of himself doing an induction. He apparently entered a hypnotic trance because he was roused by his mother who was visibly frightened. She told him he was talking in tongues. His mother thought Sam was possessed or was suffering from a psychotic episode.
She sent him to a doctor, who of course, prescribed antipsychotic medications. Prior to taking the drugs, Sam did some research on-line and came to realize that he hadn’t lost his mind, he was channeling, something he had never heard of before. He tried it again, this time recording it with a GoPro camera. He was stupefied to realize that someone or something was offering advice around a problem that he had been struggling with.
Sam has since recorded hundreds of sessions which he has put on his YouTube channel here.
I and Joe Martino, host of the Collective Evolution podcast, interviewed Sam recently. In this hour long conversation we asked him some tough questions:
How does he know that the entities that speak through him have good intentions?
Has there ever been contradictions in the material that has come through?
Why have there been so many so-called channelers who, especially of late, been so wrong?
Why are the ETs suddenly interested in conveying answers to very specific questions?
What are the rituals he must perform to ensure contact while in the trance state?
What are the most important points the ETs are trying to get us to understand?
Is Sam a conduit between us and several ET civilizations that have been monitoring the progress of humanity invisibly for thousands of years? Or is he a hoaxer that is tricking the gullible by monopolizing on their need for answers? You will have to judge for yourself (please leave your comments). Here is the interview:
Remember to only accept what resonates with your heart and intuition and discard the rest…
