I made my media debut on Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland podcast recently. It was both fun and challenging. Being a novice, I expected to stumble a bit. And I did. Thankfully, Whitley was there to pick me up, dust me off and put me back on my feet. Every time. Thank-you, Whitley!

 

I have to admit that I was a little bit overwhelmed by his effusive introduction. My book is the product of twenty years work. The journey was long, open-ended and always uncertain. Arrival was never guaranteed and never assumed. There was a lot of life that happened along the way that put everything in doubt. I really didn’t think about it all that much as I was living it– I was single-minded, focused on the next step, and then the next, and so on – until I heard Whitley welcome me to Dreamland- and then it hit me – all at once – that I’d actually gotten there.

 

The journey began around the 50th anniversary of the Roswell Incident. Colonel Philip J. Corso published The Day After Roswell and there was a real sense that Disclosure was right around the corner. I was following the story closely. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t aware of the UFO phenomenon thanks to my own experiences starting when I was a kid. So it was a very exciting time. It was also a very trying time for me personally. Through a confluence of events, including my Dad’s sudden, unexpected death, I reached an inflection point in my life. I was miserable at work. Corporate America can be soul crushing. The writings of Carlos Casteneda had a big influence on me and I could hear the words of the Yaqui Indian Sorcerer Don Juan in my head. “A path is just a path, without heart.” My path no longer had a heart. I needed a new one. So I quit.

 

I was unmarried with no children so I could just take my life in a new direction and I did. I had family in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the time, so I packed my bags and moved to New Mexico. I looked at it as a life ‘reboot.’ My plan was to just relax and let my head clear until I was ready to figure out what to do next. I did that for a while, keeping my eyes open for a new path forward. Then one day I was reading the paper and an ad caught my eye. Whitley Strieber will be appearing at an Albuquerque bookstore to sign books and give a talk. I had read his books Communion, Transformation, Confirmation, etc., so I went to see Whitley.

 

When I got to the bookstore, all the seats were taken and there was a crowd standing behind the seats, so I joined the crowd in the back. We were all waiting for Whitley to begin speaking when I realized I was standing next to Richard Hoagland. I had been following the latest controversy regarding the ‘Face on Mars’ and the infamous “Cat-Box” image, which had just been released by NASA. I introduced myself to Richard and explained that I’d been a graphic arts specialist in the publishing industry and had processed countless images in the course of my career. I knew exactly what had been done to the image and told Richard that no junior person in my field would have ever applied that filter. It seemed a transparent attempt to distort and obscure The Face. I knew I wasn’t telling Richard anything he didn’t already know, but it was a bonding opportunity. I understood his outrage over the “Cat-Box” trick.

 

Long story short, I ended up going to work for Richard and The Enterprise Mission. Before I left my Corporate America j-o-b, I’d made the transition from print to digital. I learned to design websites back when html was hand-coded. It was really not my thing, but I also got into 3-D modeling and animation, which I enjoyed. I had a unique skillset (especially in Albuquerque, New Mexico back then), a high-end Mac and some exotic software that not many others had. Richard was planning a documentary film about video from NASA Space Shuttle mission STS-80 showing multiple UFOs zipping about in the Earth’s atmosphere and what looked like some sort of exotic weapons test, so he hired me to do the CGI for the film. It was the first of an unlikely series of coincidences.

 

I built 3-D models of the space shuttle and the Earth and did some tests shots, but nothing ever came of it. Richard went to Florida to investigate some archeological controversy and had a massive heart attack while there. He spent months in the hospital. It was a miracle he survived. The documentary did not. When a film production shuts down, crews scatter quickly, looking for the next gig. I was rooming with a local PBS director who was directing our documentary and I no longer had family in New Mexico, so it was back to California for me.

 

I knew I could make a living as a consultant, while I kept an eye out for my next opportunity. I’d gotten a little taste of the Disclosure movement and I wanted more. My next chance came in 2001 in the aftermath of the original Disclosure Project press conference when Dr. Steven Greer took his Disclosure show on the road. I contacted Greer about arranging a film crew to cover the August 4th, Disclosure press conference in L.A. I had well-placed friends in Hollywood, who helped arrange a crew of young, up and coming filmmakers to cover the press conference.

 

My plan was to use the footage to make a short film on the desktop. I mixed Disclosure testimony with CGI antigravity craft and called it Beyond 2001. It was an attempt to envision the post-Disclosure world. My hope was that some of the young filmmakers would catch the Disclosure bug and maybe show the film to some of their bosses, resulting in a budget and full-length film. That was the plan.

 

Things did not go as planned. I’ll just hit the highlights: The partnership with Greer didn’t work (creative/philosophical differences). He didn’t like the short film I made. And the young Hollywood up and comers didn’t catch the Disclosure bug. They only saw the project in terms of their careers. It didn’t seem like the right move. They weren’t sure it was for real was another factor. Almost without fail, the first response I would get upon screening was, “Is this for real?”

 

What’s interesting is, while things didn’t go as planned, they still went. Through sheer happenstance I was introduced to documentary film director Suzanne Bauman, who was very knowledgeable about the subject. She liked my short film. We became partners, which was a big coup for me. Suzanne is an Academy Award Nominee for her film about Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Jackie: Behind the Myth, and is among the most brilliant filmmakers in the world. And Richard was back in the saddle! Hoagland, after having recovered from his brush with death, came out to California, met with Suzanne, my friends, etc., we had dinner meetings and strategy sessions and still it went nowhere. I thought maybe a documentary just wasn’t sexy enough for the Hollywood types. I wrote a fictional screenplay about the UFO cover-up. That didn’t fly either.

 

I am not a businessman. People in Hollywood who get movies made are businessmen. I did the best I could. I made blistering arguments about the size of the Universe, the inevitability of advanced extraterrestrial life, Fermi’s paradox, etc. In the end, none of it mattered. It was just a bridge too far at the time. Fortunately, my Hollywood friends had some practical advice- “you’d be a lot more marketable if you’d written a book,” they told me.

 

I thought, okay- so, I’ll write a book. I knew how to produce one from my days in the publishing industry. I just had to figure out how to write one. The great visionary Arthur C. Clarke once said you have to write about a million words before you’re any good at it. Well, if Sir Arthur had to write a million words, how many would I have to write before I got good at it? Ten million? A hundred million? The first couple drafts were not good.

 

My plan was to use Fermi’s paradox as the framework for my Disclosure narrative. I would make the case that Fermi paradox theorists were right that someone before us should’ve already colonized the Galaxy- and they have, including Earth, meaning we are part of a much larger civilization spread throughout the Galaxy. I had the Moon data suggesting it was an artificial satellite made from a hollowed-out planetoid. I had LaViolette’s work on pulsars suggesting a radio message for Earth. And of course, the “embarrassment of riches” that is UFO evidence. I had the Disclosure project testimony. I thought I could make a pretty good case. Then I discovered the technological Singularity.

 

There’s a well-known Buddhist saying that the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. I felt like I’d travelled a thousand miles only to came upon a sign that said: Must walk another thousand miles. I don’t remember exactly how I first heard about the Singularity. I think it was probably an article on the Internet about Google Director of Engineering, Ray Kurzweil’s book, The Singularity is Near. Whatever the case, once I got my hands on a copy of Kurzweil’s book, I had both a Eureka! moment and an “oh crap,” moment.

 

As I read Kurzweil’s take on Fermi’s paradox that we’re alone in the Universe and we’re going to be the civilization that colonizes the Galaxy and eventually the entire Universe, I realized he was completely unaware of the Disclosure movement, UFO evidence, Moon data, the pulsar beacon network, etc., and ironically, the post-Singularity world he envisions is very similar to what close encounter experiencers have reported: direct mind-to-mind communication, the blurring of the lines between biology and technology and between what’s real and what’s not. What’s more, I realized Kurzweil was unaware that the type of evidence he expects should exist if ETs had achieved post-Singularity civilization circles literally right overhead every day (made explicit by the Total Solar Eclipse). And when I discovered his prediction that there would be a non-random group of stars somewhere in the heavens if extraterrestrials had already been through the technological Singularity, I knew I had to rewrite my book – yet again – because I knew of just such a grouping of stars, thanks to Dr. Paul LaViolette’s work on the pulsar beacon network laid out in his book, Decoding the Message of the Pulsars. And I knew that I was facing another thousand miles… but I knew I had it.

 

I never really thought about it all that much, but it all flashed before me like a near death experience, as I listened to Whitley’s introduction. Then the interview went by in a flash. Whitley had said it would go smoothly beforehand, and it did for the most part, but afterwards all I could think about were the things I forgot to mention, the things I left out.

 

One regret was the 1991 Total Solar Eclipse (TSE) in Mexico when hundreds of Mexicans had video cameras at the ready for an appearance of the ‘Masters of the Stars,’ as foretold in the 1,200-year old Mayan prophecy known as the ‘Dresden Codex.’ I’m glad I told the anecdote about the wild coincidence that brought the Dresden Codex to my attention on the day that I’d been writing about the 1991 eclipse, but I failed to explain the deeper significance of the UFO/TSE event in Mexico beyond the old Mayan prophecy and how it’s our Rosetta stone for understanding life in the Universe.

 

The great science populist Isaac Asimov once called the Total Solar Eclipse the greatest coincidence in history. He was wrong. The TSE occurs because the Moon is 1/400 size of the Sun and 1/400 of the distance between the Earth and Sun, but it’s not a coincidence. UFOs appearing during the Total Solar Eclipse draws attention to the engineering of the Earth-Moon-Sun system. The TSE reveals the Sun’s corona, which acts as a natural coronagraph like astronomers use to block the Sun’s glare so they can study its atmosphere. Understanding solar weather is critically important. Solar flares and Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) are a threat to civilization/life on Earth. There’s an even greater threat to the solar system. Dr. Paul LaViolette discovered a warning encoded in the non-random location of pulsars around the Galaxy’s one radian point. The galactic core occasionally erupts, sending out a superwave of cosmic dust and radiation that could cause the Sun to send lethal flares our way. The Sun could even go supernova. By periodically calling attention to the Sun’s corona, the TSE reinforces the warning embedded in the pulsar beacon network. It also implies the ‘Masters of the Stars’ are the Builders of the Moon, who seeded life here on Earth in the aftermath of some distant technological Singularity, somewhere else long, long ago.

 

My interpretation based on Webre’s context communication theory is that UFOs seen and videotaped at the Dresden Codex Total Solar Eclipse event point to a new model of the Universe based on the technological Singularity, which posits that life in the Universe is engineered by a post-Singularity civilization. It’s an update of the Extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH) for the UFO phenomenon that I call Post-Singularity Extraterrestrial Transmigration hypothesis (PSETH). Simply put the idea is that we’re not merely being visited by aliens from afar, we’re part of this post-Singularity extraterrestrial civilization that has been colonizing the Galaxy and probably the entire Universe since the original technoSingularity.

 

Wow, now that I read what I just wrote above, I’m not so sure I regret not trying to explain all that. I’m not sure my book translates all that well to media interviews and sound bites. At least, I haven’t figured out how to do it adequately to this point. I guess that’s why I had to write a book in the first place, and why a documentary or a screenplay just wasn’t going to cut it. I hope everyone that may have found me somewhat incomprehensible at times will read the book.

 

All things considered, I think Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland was the perfect venue for my debut. Whitley was a very gracious host. I was totally blown away by his introduction and I’m so grateful to him for that. It was a humbling experience. Thank-you, Whitley!

 

For me, the journey that led to The Day After the Singularity began by happenstance with an ad for a book signing and a lecture in Albuquerque, New Mexico. How fitting that I’d get my first media exposure on Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland- also by happenstance!

 

 

 

 

 

I have been surprised to receive a fair amount of comments from readers who’ve discovered the post-Singularity Blog. It’s surprising because I’m still in the process of rolling out my book and I haven’t yet started promoting the blog. I want to thank everyone for taking the time to write. I’m gratified by your praise.

 

I’ve also gotten compliments on the design of the website and questions about how it was built. Again, very cool that you guys dig the look of the site enough to write and ask about it. I appreciate being appreciated and I will tell you some of my secrets. First, before I was an author and a blogger, I was a professional graphic artist/designer/technician in the publishing industry. So I do all my own graphics. The website was built with WordPress/BoldGrid. It was actually pretty easy to adapt my design to the BoldGrid template. It’s also great for browser compatibility issues. I highly recommend it to the website designers out there who like this site.

 

Coming Soon: I’ll have a new blog post about the Disclosure events that are happening right now. I’ll be writing about what the coronavirus has to do with a new scientific study that says there are 36 alien civilizations in the Milky Way Galaxy and the New York Times story about crashed UFOs or, as astrophysicist Eric. W. Davis called them, “off-world vehicles not made on this Earth.”

 

Get the Book

Well, now we have crisis on top of crisis. In the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, we now have civil unrest thanks to a series of senseless murders committed by police. It’s pathetic that nine years out from the Singularity we’re still so primitive that we need a movement to say that Black Lives Matter. It’s also a very ominous sign.

 

The danger is that our local Singularity here on Earth will result in the terminator scenario. Instead of reaching for the stars, our AI robots will reach for their guns- and that’s a fight we’re not going to win. Unfortunately, it seems like we’re well on our way down that path. The military is the leading AI developer in the world. We already have remote controlled drones that bomb foreign enemies. It’s only a matter of time until AI replaces Joystick Jimmy and humans are out of the loop.

 

Maybe the cops themselves will become terminators? It sure seems like they’re going in that direction. After 9/11 (the gift that just keeps on giving for the military-industrial complex), police in the US were militarized with armored vehicles, assault rifles, grenade launchers, sniper rifles, tear gas and SWAT teams. Instead of guardians of the peace who protect and serve, we now have the Warrior Cop, ready to blast down your door, guns a blazing. At least after the cops get their Borg-like AI implant (mixing science fiction metaphors, I know) they’ll be less likely break into the wrong house.

 

If we’re going to avoid the terminator scenario we’re going to have to somehow overcome the catastrophic error that occurred in the course of our evolution written about by Alfred Webre in Exopolitics that has led to the crisis at the heart of all our crises- the crisis of consciousness. “It is no accident that humans are cursed with war, violence, poverty, ignorance and death. The violence of the 20th century would not have occurred on a normal life-bearing planet that had not experienced such an evolutionary disaster,” wrote Webre about the defect in our development, which he described as a ‘rebellion’ against Universe society.

 

The information we have about this catastrophe was acquired via a military intelligence gathering technique known as Remote Viewing. It’s essentially scientifically developed psychic data and it’s not an exact science. Remote viewers have had some spectacular successes, but also some monumental misses. It’s gray basket material that needs corroboration. I’ve included it in my work because there’s some corroboration in the accounts of close encounter experiencers and it fits the model on post-Singularity cosmic expansion.

 

Another issue with remote viewing data about the post-Singularity world is that it may be difficult or impossible for the pre-Singularity mind to understand. For instance, the ‘rebellion’ may be a metaphor for some unfathomable AI error in our programming that’s impossible to explain to us. Something that would cause us to build terminators instead of von Neumann probes. Something akin to the Fermi paradox theorist’s grey goo scenario in which out-of-control self-replicating carbon nanobots turn the entire biosphere into a sea of self-replicating carbon nanobots, putting an end to life on Earth.

 

I don’t know if the so-called rebellion that led to our downward spiral was like some sort of carbon nanobot computer glitch or not, but we seem to be doing a pretty bang-up job of destroying the biosphere. So things aren’t looking good right now. If Vegas took bets on the whole thing I’d have to put my money on the terminator scenario, but I still have hope. The Singularity is a corrective process and it’s happening right now. In less than a decade, according to Ray Kurzweil, AI will surpass human intelligence, but it’s not like there’s a switch that’s going to flip. We’re on the event horizon right now and we’re getting sucked in. You’re already a cyborg, as Elon Musk said recently, if you lose your smart phone you feel like you’ve lost a limb. If your wi-fi goes down so do you, for the most part.

 

The technological Singularity will raise consciousness like no other force in history. Afterwards, everyone will be as smart as Einstein and will have access to the spiritual and mystical experiences of Buddha, Brahma, Christ, etc. That will certainly be a quantum leap in consciousness when it happens, but we can see how technology is raising consciousness right now. The George Floyd murder triggered a global response. Everyone in the world got to watch in horror as a man was murdered for no reason over an agonizing eight and a half minutes. It was absolutely horrific. Thanks to the smart phone and the Internet, the incident has raised consciousness globally. That’s a good thing, but let’s hope the trend towards higher consciousness continues without another gruesome act.

 

It’s been said that the inhumanity of man toward man is our greatest sin. Maybe this is the beginning of the end of all that? Maybe this movement to change policing is the first step away from the terminator scenario? We can only hope. Godspeed to the movement. Black Lives Matter might just save us all.
