Alien is a scary term that gets thrown around a lot when we are trying to exclude some brother or sister from participating in one of our ventures. For example, Alabama Republican Mo Brooks, concerned about the dangers of allowing citizenship in the United States of America on the basis of military participation, was asking, "How do you ensure that illegal aliens are loyal to America and not another country? Is it wise to entrust illegal aliens with questionable loyalties with America’s military secrets and weapons, including weapons of mass destruction?”
The aliens in this situation are not the individual humans to whom he is referring. The alien is a thoughtform embodied in Mr. Brooks thinking. Any impersonal, detached observer can see that the planet operates within an integrated, unified paradigm and a totally cooperative ecosystem.
Everything that is natural to this system, such as a human being, is interconnected with everything else and the harmonious interplay between all of these interconnected and related bits give the planet its equilibrium. All parts are equal, and the continued manifestation of the planet in space depends upon this balanced harmony.
Alien thinking is thinking that is not harmonious with the natural laws of a system. Alien thinking justifies the excluding of individuals from the right sharing of the fruits of a system based on their skin color, sex, income level, etc. Alien thinking justifies the killing of brothers and sisters in wars over perceived threats. It justifies the destruction of the environment in the name of profits and progress. It posits a certain amount of poverty as a natural occurrence in the system and so on and on.
On the other hand, alien often means "something, some form or body, that is not natural to a given system". From this point of view then, the most obvious alien form on this planet is the Golem we call a Corporation. And, corporations, as presently constituted, are actually uber dangerous to the Way of Life of this ecosystem.
A Corporation is a bodiless totally self-centered energy system. It is a voracious Alien entity; i.e.; not of or compatible with the energy system of this planet. Lacking a dense physical form, it is a huge vortex of negative energy that is consuming Light at an alarming pace, sort of a bad dream "black hole"!
Corporations are concerned only with their own survival which they pursue with all their power and with zero consideration for any aspects of the ecosystem, including human beings, that get in the way of its progress towards its goal. The goal of a Corporation very clearly expressed by Steve Jobs of Apple, is to make money or profit. Corporations are literally heartless, and they work ceaselessly to achieve their heartless ends. As Steve Jobs put it the corporate goal of Apple--and all other corporations--is to “tie all of our products together, so we further lock customers into our ecosystem.”
Corporations enjoy all of the privileges of human beings. However, they are citizens of no Nation. The owe allegiance only to themselves or what are described as "Stock Holders". A large percentage of these "stock holders" are also not human beings but other corporations. At the end of this very complicated chain, the corporations are actually the personal property of a tiny, tiny handful of the 7 billion humans on the planet.
Most of these individuals are not even remotely interested in such meaningless concepts as living wages, or adequate food supplies, or sanitary water, let alone such grandiose fantasies as equality and the inalienable right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We have liberated ourselves from the alien concept of Kings attempting to lock up all of their serfs or subjects, only to be replaced by an even more amorphous slave master. At least we could see the Kings and do something about them.
Big question: What are we going to do about these Aliens?
Suggestions are greatly needed.
lots of love
