Visitors from Outer Space

The Phoenix Lights can do little more than add to the theories, speculations and the often heated discussion on the subject of the possibility of other forms of life in the universe. It is believed that sightings have appeared worldwide for centuries. Both highly scientific and empirical data has been made available for many years, particularly in modern times, based on more thorough ways of analysis. We are told that a belief in advanced life forms are very possible in the universe. What no one seems to address is the question of the motivation of those who could be hovering over the city of Phoenix and indeed in many other parts of the world.

Taking the position that it may be possible that we are being visited by entities from elsewhere, wouldn’t it be interesting to know why? I think that the most important factor is that if there are life forms elsewhere, they will be hundreds of thousands of years ahead of us in physical, emotional and scientific development.

It is reasonable to ask, “Why don’t they do more than hover as if they were making observations?” “Why don’t they just get on with it and land and begin to communicate with us?” It is at this juncture that I would like to make valuable observations.

First of all what would be their agenda? What would they hope to accomplish? What would motivate anything that they wanted to do? Since there is reason to believe that there were sightings over the past hundreds of years, it seems that there were many opportunities to make themselves known. What would have happened if they appeared to the ancient Greeks? What would have happened if they attempted to make contact with the Hun Chinese? The condition of the human race at any time during past thousands of years would have been a fertile field for anyone wanting to provide knowledge and help. For a civilization with superior intelligence and experience could have assisted man enormously in his many struggles.

It is only in our present century that the body of knowledge can flow at the speed of light manifesting opportunities for passing on knowledge to all parts of the world. If our celestial visitors wanted to present a message, the 21st century world with its rapid communication would enable them to do so. Never before in the past has this been possible. Anything that would be told to us or presented in any way would be immediately disseminated around the globe. Because of their hundred thousand year advancement, they could be able to address issues that for us today are thorny indeed. They could share with us the art of living together in peace and harmony. They could teach us how to live much longer and more productive lives. They could teach us about the utilization of logical processes in the task of problem solving. Their contributions could be endless.

First of all, where would they land? Would they land on the grounds of the White House, or on the grounds of Buckingham Palace? Would they be able to penetrate our elaborate radar defenses and land without setting off the alarms which would immediately mobilize our defensive systems? More importantly, would they be able to address the panic and its repercussions that their appearance would create? Perhaps they could have multiple landings in many parts of the world at the same time. Regardless of their intentions, one thing that they probably would not be able to do is address the issue of human intelligence or by their standards, the lack of it.

    I do believe Jesus was one those sky beings (Alien in our era) that was also mention in the bible…and I also believe that most of the religions would crumble or at least would definitely shake it’s own foundation, if these Aliens finally decide to shows up to the public.

    You are absolutely correct by stating that if Jesus returned, he would surely be crucified for a second time. He would, at the very least, be ridiculed and rejected. We would deny His presence. Why? Only one possible explaination: Ignorance. Extraterrestrials do exist. They know more about ourselves than we do. They have guided us from a behind-the-scenes approach since antiquity. Realizing that we are free spirits with the ability to make our own decisions and chart our own destiny, they would never superimpose anything upon us. Having intervened in the past, first by jump-starting our intelligence, and then by introducing Jesus to millions worldwide, hopefully there will be a near-future third full blown intervention where they will reveal their existence to all in order to save man from man himself. As for the ten subjects to be addressed, there are many. Man is about to enter a time zone which will be a point of no return. Man’s salvation will not be man alone.

    People from elsewhere coming to the earth would be wise enough to refrain from superimposing their knowledge and beliefs. I think that they would be wise enough to try to determine what earth people needed, wanted or expected. They would try to find a consusus, but that would be very difficult. Their primary problem wopuld be in trying to overcome the fear factor in so far as the majoritry of the people across the globe would reject their efforts out of hand.
    Christian people believe that the message of Jesus proclaimed 2,000 years ago was both simple yet profound. In many instances today, groups of Christian people are light years apart in their beliefs.
    You ask for the ten subjects that celestral visitors might address and I can’t think of even one.that would be completely acceptable.
    For 40 years, I practiced as a clinical psychologist. People came to see me with a wide variety of problems and were prepared to pay a lot of money for me to help them. There was one major problem and that was that they really didn’t want to change anything, they just wanted someone who would listen to them complain about how difficult their life was. If Jesus came back to earth, we would crucify him again.

    In your opinion, what would you list as ten subjects that the cosmic visitors would address in global and individual issues in the 21st century?
