Why are the super rich suddenly sponsoring SETI and getting all worried about asteroids (and AI)? what use might they have in not just learning about possible extraterrestrials, but learning how WE react to them too? is Elon Musk about to go into business with Alf or is an Alien Invasion the perfect cover for a takeover of Earth by an incredibly high-tech, but Earthbound – for now – Breakaway Civilisation?
The Plutocratic Exit Strategy & their False Flag Alien Invasion getaway
When you have a few billion dollars and fervently believe in the promise of Transhumanism not just the world, but the Solar System and the entire Galaxy appear to be full of threats. When you are certain that immortality is within your grasp and are planning on building a multiplanetary civilisation exclusively for the %1 your problems aren’t on the level of paying the bills or getting a job, they’re on the scale of an alien invasion – as extraterrestrial takeover of your assets – or you stress over asteroids crashing your eternal party. You fear you’ve only won a game being played inside a Machine Simulation and/or Artificial Intelligences arising to challenge your dominance. This is why the World’s Elite – the Plutocrats – are suddenly heavily investing in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), under the Breakthrough Listen initiative, but cautioning against making Contact with them (Contacting Extraterrestrial Intelligence or CETI). Why they’re not just building a private (plutocratic) space program, but trying to set up asteroid-detecting infrastructure, such as the Sentinel Space Telescope. And most recently of all: launching a non-profit artificial intelligence group, OpenAI, that exists soley to balance out the private research of Google and Facebook, all in the name of “benefiting humanity”. Noticeably led by their spokesperson, Elon Musk, these billionaires and their helpers are intent on creating an entire new civilisation that will cross space and span worlds; all whilst the Earth and the majority of its population dies off. This is not a coincidence. Far from it.
The thesis I have been developing – an alternate narrative for not just our present situation, but one that also explains the events the past few decades – I call “The Plutocratic Exit Strategy”. It points to an ongoing alliance between corporate and military powers to create a Breakaway Civilisation (if such a thing doesn’t already exist). One that unites the world of Classified Technology with the efforts of Silicon Valley to create an ultra high tech, post-carbon series of walled cities across the planet – and soon off it – that will function as a single society connected via new methods of transport such as the Hyperloop and Space X’s Falcon rockets. Just as high ranking Nazis covertly traveled to countries in South America once they knew they were loosing the war, so are these people that have profited from polluting and destroying the Earth are setting in place the means to start over on Mars, or elsewhere. And UFOs provide the perfect means to cover their escape. This is the more sinister side of their sudden interest in not just SETI, but how people might react to Contact (or Disclosure).
A False Flag Alien Invasion has long been touted as one means by which a New World Order could instantly establish its dominance over the Earth. The existence of such a plan has been attributed to the death bed confessions of Wernher von Braun, as the final stage in long term plans to engineer a planetary takeover on demand. Uniting the globe under a single government as the citizens of the world cowered in fear of the sudden arrival of clearly technology superior, almost magical UFOs; craft which are actually the advanced prototype vehicles of this Breakaway Civilisation. It’s unquestionably a clever strategy, but… it presupposes that the goal is merely to control our home planet and its people. It makes for an even more cunning plan if – all in plain sight – the rich, and all the loot they’ve gathered, make their way off-world under the cover of Alien Motherships arriving and departing over various major cities. It’s an idea that’s long lurked within science fiction. We can illustrate it by referencing Arthur C. Clarke’s novel Childhood’s End and see elements of it about to be on display in the forthcoming TV show Colony. If these billionaires are already in the process of realising their Space Age fantasies of having their own rockets and traveling to other planets, how are we to know just where they’ll stop in drawing from the well of Golden Age SF to achieve their agenda? Most importantly for the rest of us: just by being aware of the possibility of such a scenario we’re less likely to fall for such a high concept act of misdirection in the greatest getaway ever attempted.
“Suppose the Overlords are hiding the fact that they’ve got nothing to hide?”
“That sounds just a little complicated to me,” said Stormgren, beginning to take slight interest.
“What I mean is this,” Van Ryberg continued eagerly. “I think that physically they’re human beings like us. They realize that we’ll tolerate being ruled by creatures we imagine to be – well, alien and super-intelligent. But the human race being what it is, it just won’t be bossed around by creatures of the same species.”
~ Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke.
The effectiveness of using a False Flag Alien Invasion to cower the majority of the human population – not that they actually said it aloud – formed part of the conclusion of the classic Brooking’s Report released at the end of 1960: “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs.” Its famous warning about the resultant Collapse likely to result from First Contact, derived from Margaret Mead’s study of ‘primitive societies’, read:
“Anthropological files contain many examples of societies, sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they have had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in its values and attitudes and behavior.”
But there’s a passage just above that makes this statement all the more interesting:
“The discovery would certainly be front-page news everywhere: the degree of political or social repercussion would probably depend on leader’s interpretation of (1) its own role, (2) threats to that role and (3) national and personal opportunities to take advantage of the disruption or reinforcement of the attitudes and values of others.”
It’s literally all there in that third part: national and personal opportunities to take advantage of the disruption. To use the term popularised by Naomi Klein in her work on Disaster Capitalism, an effective False Flag Alien Invasion enables the implementation of the ultimate Shock Doctrine strategy.
Here’s how one could do so, if they were so inclined… Here’s what to watch for, if we want to catch them in the act:
Hover some tricked out, mocked up “Alien Motherships” over the cities you want to control, then quickly 3D-print formidable walls around the key pieces of territory you want to control.
Bring out all the Classified trillion dollar toys – such as drones of all shapes and sizes and abilities far beyond what’s been seen before – to patrol the now “alien governed” city state and maintain that overwhelming presence. Send out the mad science creatures conjured in the lab with the genetic engineering technology, CRISPR and whatever else they built there. Create a fully mythic menagerie to showcase your mastery over nature and crank the Wow Factor up to 11.
In the recent essay “CRISPR Critters and CRISPR Cracks” two geneticists wrote that we shouldn’t be surprised at all to soon learn about “the billionaire who decides to give his 12-year-old daughter a real unicorn for her birthday”. Continuing that:
“Basic physics will almost certainly combine with biological constraints to prevent the creation of flying dragons or fire-breathing dragons—but a very large reptile that looks at least somewhat like the European or Asian dragon (perhaps even with flappable if not flyable wings) could be someone’s target of opportunity”
Because what technomagical NeoFeudal takeover is complete without dragon simulacra?
Or, later, to mark the full conquest of Earth, and test the psychological takeover of Humanity, introduce the secretive rulers of the World to be, well, the Devil. This is another pro-tip that Childhood’s End provides.
“There was no mistake. The leathery wings, the little horns, the barbed tail-all were there. The most terrible of all legends had come to life, out of the unknown past. Yet now it stood smiling, in ebon majesty, with the sunlight gleaming upon its tremendous body, and with a human child resting trustfully on either arm.”
~ Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke.
Do this all before the people have any chance to react, let alone rebel and the Technocratic Takeover is instantaneous. No one is wise to the fact that a Breakaway Civilisation just annexed them. Instead, the bulk of humanity will just see wonders and miracles appear from beyond the Wall, and think themselves privy to a new Golden Age dawning upon the Earth; never knowing that the Wall is nothing more than the curtain from The Wizard of Oz and it’s all a cheap trick meant to dazzle and distract. Cheap when you’ve already sequestered the spoils of the Earth, safe and secure and guarded by humans happy to Collaborate.
Next, set up Exclusion Zones buffers between the borders of the city state and the areas where the rest of the human population reside. Controlling their access by Breakaway Civ non-citizens (aka the 99%) and serving as a launching point for various species of “alien craft” to go out and do as their will. Taking the remaining resources of the planet required to fulfill their unknowable “alien agenda”; be that minerals, technology or people. Such a strategy enables the further destruction of the planet under the cover of the acts of an Extraterrestrial Intelligence. This is how the Plutocrats can further strip the planet of all its worth and set themselves up on Mars, or elsewhere. It could all be over before anyone wakes up to it.
This is then, potentially, the final, open act in a long term, decades long secret plan. As we’ve learned in the past few months, the Oil Cartels have known since at least the late 1970s that the climate was being destroyed by their business activities. They even contemplated moving over to a new energy system at the time, but instead choose to spend the entire time since the 1990s fighting any and all attempts to prevent curb their activities, and thus their preserve huge profits. The board members of companies such as Exxon are just the kind of customers SpaceX has in mind to fund the first stages of their interplanetary infrastructure roll-out. They’ll soon pay any price to make their escape from Earth, before the eco-holocaust trials begin. Just like the Nazis traded to their loot to start over with a new name in Argentina etc.
“Yet man had not discovered anti-gravity; only the Overlords possessed that ultimate secret.”
~ Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke.
Perhaps the greatest crime of all, worse than profiting on Earth’s destruction and then running away, is using technology that could repair it all to do so. Focusing resources on establishing a Martian colony before restoring the ecologies of Earth – or better yet, doing both in parallel. Continuing to ruin the planet with full knowledge of the consequences is beyond inexcusable; you can see why they’re in a hurry now to make their getaway.
If we can make reliable inferences from what knowledge is publicly available they may be going faster and further than we first suspect. The reactionless EM Drive – initially dismissed by NASA, then proven by Chinese scientists – could just be one means of propulsion that’s far more advanced than has been openly acknowledged. Because for all the science-fictional romance that is the idea of a colony on Mars, it’s proving to be a terrible idea – not only will its lower gravity cause any permanent colonists to be severally effected by the resultant calcium loss, but any hope of terraforming the planet has to start with engineering it a magnet field, because currently solar winds are stripping its atmosphere without one. That’s a serious megaengineering project that – to repeat – makes fixing Earth up look like child’s play.
Yet incredible engineering projects of such an epic, inhuman scale are exactly what members of the think tanks favoured by the Plutocrats are contemplating. This was evidenced appropriately enough through recent discussion of a possible alien artefact: the partial Dyson Sphere touted as an explanation for the unusual observations of the star, KIC 8462852. Anders Sandberg, James Martin Research Fellow, Future of Humanity Institute & Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford, wrote on the subject:
“To build a Dyson sphere, one would need to disassemble a nearby body, like a planet, to provide the material for the solar captors. In a recent paper written with a colleague, we calculated that disassembling Mercury to make a partial Dyson shell could be done in 31 years. One way of doing this would be to mechanically disassemble the planet, much like we do in our aluminium and steel industries. From these industries, we know a lot already about the energy cost of such work, so the trick is to use already mined material to build more mining equipment and solar collectors to power it, achieving an exponential feedback loop.
The time it would take to disassemble any terrestrial planets is not much longer than for Mercury, while the gas giants would take a few centuries. Our aim in the paper was to show that using a small fraction of the resources in the solar system it is possible to harness enough energy to launch a massive space colonisation effort (literally reaching every reachable galaxy, eventually each solar system), but the important point is that this kind of planetary engineering is fast on astronomical timescales.”
No question then that ‘great minds’ are at work on the problem of conquering the Galaxy within a few decades.
Could an escape to Mars then be another false flag? What if one day all the “Alien Motherships” left and never returned? When – after slowly realising just what had actually happened – the remaining, now abandoned population of Earth managed to mount its own space program to Mars with the scraps remaining to it, seeking justice in the process, only to find no trace at all of any colony on the Red Planet. Any and all broadcasts from it and other off-world colonies all being faked in a sound stage, just like Capricorn One hinted might happen in ’77.
This isn’t even the worst scenario for our purposes. As was already hinted, there’s evidence of factions at work. If there’s one (proto)Breakaway Civilisation, there may be another too; or more. Competing or parasitic factions within a single nation’s Classified Programs are no surprise in hindsight, especially as the full extent of Operation: Paperclip is increasingly appreciated.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier gave a far too believable depiction of this, with HYDRA (as Nazi International proxy) secretly controlling the activities of S.H.I.E.L.D (stand-in for Anglophone-led Western Military Industrial Complex) from within. Its narrative functions as a retelling of the N.W.O. version of the False Flag takeover, and ties in perfectly with events that SyFy’s producers choose to commence their adaptation of Childhood’s End with.
“HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize was that if you try to take that freedom, they resist. The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, S.H.I.E.L.D was founded and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew. A beautiful parasite inside S.H.I.E.L.D. For seventy years, HYDRA has been secretly feeding crisis, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed… HYDRA created a world so chaotic that humanity is finally ready to sacrifice its freedom to gain its security.”
~ Dr. Arnim Zola, Captain America: The Winter Solider.
In the updated scenario I’m proposing the ongoing, seemingly ever escalating crisis afflicting the World isn’t being engineered to make Humanity at large cry out for the arrival of a greater power to stabilise things at any cost. Instead, it’s the direct result of a planetary escape plan in motion. The chaos besetting the world is the mud and dust being kicked up as the Elite make one last grab for power and territory before running back and commencing their extraplanetary expansion. A slow motion apocalypse such as this doesn’t need to be feed or engineered for its own sake, it just naturally results from the neglect of the so-called Powers-That-Be; a leadership out for itself alone. Having long been initiated into the mechanics of their shared Exit Strategy, they can operate knowing they’ll soon have Walls to hide behind on Earth; and shortly after, beyond it.
S.H.I.E.L.D’s Helicarrier Fleet – fitted out with Plutocratic Tech (courtesy of Tony Stark) to give it anti-gravity capabilities – coverty created by Nick Fury & the World Security Council in The Winter Soldier needs very little changed to function as a fake Alien Mothership. It serves as an excellent illustration of just how it could all be unfolding right now in a Deep Underground Military Bunker in an undisclosed location.
We can understand too how, with a modest fleet size of just three craft, by then adopting Extraterrestrial Characteristics the projection of force would’ve been far more effective, creating a psychological distortion field by its aesthetics alone. This could be handily magnified across the globe with the use of a Project Blue Beam-style holographic technology mirroring it above other key cities. This is another thing that makes Childhood’s End look like an instruction manual for a technocratic coup.
“There was only the single ship now, hanging above New York. Indeed, as the world had just discovered, the ships above Man’s other cities had never existed. The day before, the great fleet of the Overlords had dissolved into nothingness, fading like mists beneath the morning dew. The supply ships, coming and going far out in space, had been real enough; but the silver clouds that had hung for a lifetime above almost all the capitals of Earth had been an illusion. How it had been done, no one could tell, but it seemed that every one of those ships had been nothing more than an image of Karellen’s own vessel. Yet it had been far more than a matter of playing with light, for radar had also been deceived, and there were still men alive who swore that they had heard the shriek of torn air as the fleet came in through the skies of Earth. It was not important; all that mattered was that Karellen no longer felt the need for this display of force. He had thrown away his psychological weapons.”
~ Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke.
UFOs are the ultimate in shock & awe, as was discovered during the alien invasion [see the events of The Avengers etc] in the Marvel universe. Their secret aerospace program is actually the direct consequence of this. But they’re just movies, right? Nobody is telling secrets out of school…
In reality, the public Space Race of the 21st Century is shaping up to be a showdown with China & Russia on one side and the Plutocratic Space Program on the other. NASA has already stated that it wants to hand over LEO to the corporations, advancing its own activities to cislunar space. NASA has an Exit Strategy too, it’s just (publicly) more modest; first get established around the Moon and then start capturing asteroids.
Asteroid mining clearly lies on the horizon of industrialisation, and is just one of the big economic shake-ups coming. The problem remains how to cost-effectively get the trillions of dollars of minerals (by Earth standards) down to our planet. Just because there’s competing factions – and asteroids were part of Von Braun’s alleged False Flag warning list – doesn’t necessarily mean we can expect the accidental destruction of a rival faction’s walled city. And yet any asteroid flying by the Earth gets an increasing amount of publicity, building up public perception of this threat… It may well be all part of the Plan.
The only thing worse than a False Flag Alien Invasion is multiple, simultaneous and competing False Flag Alien Invasions. Or full scale Total Cosmic War, as rival Breakaway Civs battle over the resources of not just Earth, but the Solar System and beyond. Each faction dismantling entire planets to create interstellar transport vehicles or armadas of weaponised starships. Reports of such space wars can be found in the ancient Hindu epics; the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. I can only pray they don’t have further volumes to join them in the future. Brighter tales of ecological restoration and space colonisation by 100% of humanity would be my preference.
