It’s a question often posed in classic Sci-Fi books and movies — to challenge us.
In the 1968 classic, Planet of the Apes, when the chimp ‘animal psychologist’ Zira fails to get the wounded astronaut Taylor to speak, Dr. Zaius says, “The sooner he is exterminated the better…it’s a question of simian survival!” Later, when he orders explosives to seal up a cave with evidence of man’s superiority, the young chimp Lucius cries, “Why must knowledge stand still? What about the future?” Zaius replies, “I may just have saved it for you.”
The fight for SURVIVAL is often characterized as “humanity versus anything nonhuman” — such as apes, or robots or aliens.
Most often the battle is won through military means or clever use of technology like a computer virus to outwit the enemy (Independence Day). Sometimes it is simply ‘dumb luck’, like when humanity is saved from Martian invaders by common microbes in War of the Worlds.
But what if our survival on Earth depends on something else altogether — like our ability to adapt to CHANGE in a way we never expected?
What if there was some inevitable force at work, transforming our world slowly over time … and survival required an expansion of consciousness — sometimes referred to as “enlightenment” — meaning a willingness to accept all living things without judgement?
There is — though you might not know it, because so many “gatekeepers” in our society have labored long and hard to “protect” us from one simple truth: beneath all the superficial differences that separate us, we are the same.
Students of history might say that humanity has been part of an “experiment”, ongoing from the moment of our inception. For centuries, wars have been fought between people of different ideology or skin color — when one group migrates to another’s land, and so are characterized as “invaders”; mistreated or driven away in the short term, then slowly, they merge together and are accepted.
Fans of science fiction who follow the work of abduction researchers like Budd Hopkins (“Intruders”) and David A. Jacobs (“The Threat” and “Walking Among Us”) have also come to realize that SURVIVAL is a very real part of the Alien Agenda to join with the human race through hybridization. They mean to settle here on Earth, living side by side with human beings.
It’s already happening.
Science fiction has a way of becoming science reality — because it often points to a future that few of us have ever imagined. Consider Star Trek — where human and alien races have been merging for decades. Every day, we seem to be getting closer to a world involving the mix of humanity with aliens in ways that transform our point of view.
Survival means transformation. We can’t fight them when they are part of us.
