About the Author


As a futurist at The Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute, ALFRED LAMBREMONT WEBRE served as Principal Investigator for a proposed civilian scientific study of extraterrestrial communication, i.e., interactive communication between our terrestrial human culture and that of possible intelligent Off-Planet Cultures.


This proposed study was presented to and developed with interested members of the domestic policy staff of the White House of President Jimmy Carter from the spring of 1977 until the fall of 1977, when it was abruptly terminated. A Fulbright Scholar, Webre is a graduate of Yale University. He earned his Juris Doctor from Yale Law School, where he was a National Scholar, and completed the University of Texas Counseling Program. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar.

In addition to serving as a futurist at SRI, Webre was General Counsel to New York City’s EPA and was an environmental consultant to the Ford Foundation. He has taught Economics at Yale and Civil Liberties at the University of Texas and is an author. Webre served as a member of the Governor’s Emergency Taskforce on Earthquake Preparedness for the State of California (1980-82), a position Governor Jerry Brown appointed him to.


He produced and hosted The Instant of Cooperation, the first live radio broadcast between the United States and the former Soviet Union, which was carried live by Gosteleradio and National Public Radio satellite radio in 1987. He was elected a Clinton-Gore delegate to the 1996 Texas Democratic Convention. Webre was a delegate to the UNISPACE Outer Space Conference and an NGO representative at the United Nations (Communications Coordination Committee for the UN; UN Second Special Session on Disarmament).

Today, Webre is a space activist who works with others to prevent the weaponization of space and to transform the permanent war economy into a sustainable, peaceful, cooperative Space Age society reintegrated with a larger, intelligent Universe society. He is the International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), available at; is a founder of the No Weapons in Space Campaign (NOWIS), a Canadian coalition to prevent the weaponization of space; and coordinates the Campaign for Cooperation in Space, available at


He is an On-Air Host on Vancouver Coop Radio CFRO 102.7 FM, available at, and is the founder of Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe, an Internet resource for Exopolitical discourse and advocacy.


Webre lives with his spouse, psychotherapist and psychic Geri DeStefano-Webre, Ph.D., in Vancouver, British Columbia.




What People Are Saying About Exopolitics

  1. Review by Nick Pope

    UFOs have been seen throughout human history. Witnesses have included police officers, pilots, and even presidents. The phenomenon has been the subject of scientific study, and has been investigated by the governments and the military of many countries around the world. The evidence is compelling and includes UFOs sighted by pilots, simultaneously tracked on radar, and anomalous radiation readings taken where UFOs have been seen to land.


    While there is much controversy over many UFO sightings, these facts are not disputed and have been confirmed by official documents released in response to various Freedom of Information Act requests in recent years. Although the study of UFOs is fascinating in itself, there is a bigger picture. Most scientists in relevant fields now believe that we are likely to share the Universe with a myriad of other life forms.


    Frank Drake, the scientist who originated the concept of using radio telescopes to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life, estimated that our own galaxy, the Milky Way, might contain 10,000 intelligent, technological civilizations. Recent scientific discoveries, including those relating to extra-solar planets, have led Drake and others to conclude that they may have underestimated the figure considerably. How then should we view humanity in such a crowded Universe?


    This is where Exopolitics comes in.


    I confidently predict that it’s a word we’ll be hearing more of over the next few years. It relates to the study of humanity not just as inhabitants of Planet Earth but in the wider context of our position in a Universe that we share with other civilizations. Racism, nationalism, and self-interest may suggest that humanity is not yet ready to deal in open contact with other civilizations. How can we hope to get along with other civilizations when we cannot get along with each other?


    And yet, for all our problems, there are hopeful signs that people are taking a less insular perspective. A growing spiritual awareness and cross-cultural concern about issues such as global warming and the weaponization of space suggest that humanity is capable of taking a wider perspective. This mindset goes to the heart of Exopolitics.

    Alfred Webre can be regarded as the founding father of Exopolitics as a field of human inquiry. His involvement with the study of the UFO phenomenon includes work with the Carter Administration and with the prestigious Stanford Research Institute, which are impressive credentials in this most controversial of emerging sciences.


    His book, Exopolitics, gives an overview of the field and offers a blueprint for humanity as it moves toward taking its place on a wider stage. It is a roadmap to the stars.

  2. Review by Command Sergeant-Major Robert O. Dean


    It’s been 40 years now since I first became aware of the reality of the extraterrestrial presence on planet Earth. Since that experience, my life has never been quite the same. A fire was ignited within my very being. I continued to learn, to seek, and to know more and more about what I later came to understand is the most important issue in human history. The issue is not that we are not alone, but that we have never been alone.

    I was to learn that the human race has had, and continues to have, an intimate interrelationship with several incredibly advanced intelligent races from other planets, solar systems, and star systems within our galaxy – and that this relationship has been underway for several thousand years.

    These star-traveling civilizations are as far beyond humans on planet Earth as modern America is beyond the head hunting tribes of New Guinea. This is primarily why disclosure has not taken place – and why disclosure is not contemplated by the unacknowledged US government agencies that oversee this great secret. I have always proclaimed that an understanding and acceptance of the reality that we are not alone would bring with it an expansion of human consciousness that will transform the human species and guarantee our survival.


    The whole story is literally 11 mind-boggling. The truth is shocking, disturbing, frightening, and socially and theologically explosive. In my later, more mature years, I have almost come to understand why the secret government has kept a lid on this greatest secret of all time for so long, and why they are so frightened to open Pandora’s Box. You see, we simply cannot open Pandora’s Box just a little bit. Once we open it, nothing will ever be the same. A major new paradigm will come crashing in and our old world will come crashing down. Religion, society, politics – all will be utterly changed forever. Obviously, this is what the world’s governments fear.

    The final reality is that the story must be told and will be told. Exopolitics is a logical, rational, and scholarly attempt to clarify and present to the world the structure of an existing reality that can become a valuable tool in educating and expanding human consciousness. To this effort, I commend Alfred Webre and other members of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) for their courage and dedication.


    I give my full support and encouragement to this endeavor, and I pray that it succeeds. If we ever mature as a race, we must recognize our extended family and reach out to them with courage and fellowship.


    Exopolitics can show us the way.

  3. Review by Father John Rossner


    Alfred Lambremont Webre defines “Exopolitics” as a new discipline for understanding “Universe society” through its politics and government. In such terms, it would “…posit that the truest conception of our earthly circumstance may be that we are on an isolated planet in the midst of a populated, evolving, highly organized inter-planetary, intergalactic, multi-dimensional Universe society.”

    This statement – whether one “believes” ETI or contactee reports or not – should be highly interesting to historians of religion and culture. The history of human cultures, East and West, ancient and modern, is replete with accounts of encounters with “beings from space worlds,” interacting with humans for varied purposes throughout the ages. One might well ask why the imagination of so many in cultures not in contact with one another have come up with, and been captivated by, this repetitive “myth” – one that often defies their accepted “logic.”

    New paradigms of science, and new models for understanding a “multi-dimensional Universe” – in which consciousness, intuition, and “non-local communications” are realities of common experience – are already widespread today. In this context, Webre’s championship of the new discipline of “Exopolitics” is a very credible academic and scientific pursuit.


    His extraordinary qualifications as a former researcher and a futurist at SRI’s Center for the Study of Social Policy, and as an advisor to government on this subject, contributes to this study’s significance as a contribution to knowledge at the beginning of the 21st century.

  4. Review by Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo


    As our globe gets smaller and smaller, our eyes start to focus more and more on the many worlds around us. It is not just that we need more physical space for ourselves, but also existentially. We are contemporaries of God and we are duty-bound to reveal more of His greatness. Consequently, we must ask ourselves, how shall we discover more and more of Him?


    Alfred Webre’s book makes us realize that this may be possible in ways we did not imagine some years ago.

  6. Review by Robert Nichol


    Alfred Webre’s treatise, Exopolitics, bodes well for those of us interested in the next step we must take as a species to evolve as universal beings. Here again, much will be made about the cover-up of our universal heritage, but, in truth, we need to move beyond that controversy to an awareness of the global significance of our arising consciousness and our realization of a greater cosmic reality.


    This, so aptly communicated in Alfred’s work, is the needed direction to take and the role that must be played by humanity at this time. Exopolitics is an inspiration, providing for me a greater understanding of my own evolving comprehension of the extraterrestrial presence and our place in the Universe.

  7. Review by Linda Moulton Howe


    Exopolitics – Politics, Government, and Law in the Universe. That is a bold book title, given that most of this planet’s human population is taught that we are a unique life form alone in the Universe. But author Alfred Lambremont Webre speaks as a futurist with a background at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute, and as the current International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space. Alfred Webre makes many bold assertions in this book that will provoke readers to argue that his statements are opinion and speculation, not fact.


    Perhaps at the same time, readers will also feel an intuitive resonance with his premise that Earth life cannot be the only life in the vast Cosmos. He points out that a Gallup poll in 1996 “showed that 72% of the US adult population believes there is some form of extraterrestrial life, and 45% believes the Earth has already been visited by extraterrestrial beings.” Anticipating a time in the future when banner headlines will proclaim, We are Not Alone!, Webre promises that “Transformation of human society will occur when we reach a Universe-sensitive mass. With approximately 45% of Earth’s population now extraterrestrial-conscious, can critical mass be far behind?”


    Despite many controversial contentions, including the author’s thesis that the Earth is in a political quarantine enforced by Someone Else’s universal law, Exopolitics forces the reader to wonder what exactly would happen if this round of humankind, with all its government-controlled perceptions, was finally faced with the presence of ETs?


    Exopolitics emerges at a time when astronomers are finding many planets beyond Earth, and quantum string astrophysicists even describe other universes parallel to this one. If the Universe is filled with life, and even has multiple dimensions, then numerous life forms and their various agendas would inevitably mean “social food fights,” and, as Alfred Webre describes it, would also require government and law in the Universe.

  8. Review by Honorable Paul T. Hellyer


    Alfred Lambremont Webre’s odyssey into the realm of life in the vast Universe surrounding planet Earth is indeed a fascinating journey if you read it with an open mind. He postulates a Universe that includes many planets sustaining life more advanced than our own – all subject to universal governance based on the rule of law. Earth, he suggests, is an exception.


    Rather than being the center of the Universe, as our ancestors believed, we are the black sheep of the interplanetary community. We have been “quarantined” and isolated from the “highly organized, interplanetary, intergalactic multidimensional society,” presumably because our culture has been strongly influenced by rogue planetary leadership personified in the story of the Garden of Eden.


    To end the “quarantine,” Earthlings must advance morally and spiritually, while reestablishing connection with inter-planetary society. Until recently, we didn’t have the technology to do the latter, but increasingly we do. Meanwhile, visits from our extraplanetary neighbors present opportunities for peaceful communication and collaboration.

    Webre posits that some UFOs are natural phenomena, while some are top-secret military aircraft, but that others are quite real. He maintains that knowledge of their existence is being suppressed by military intelligence organizations in the five English-speaking countries known as the so-called “Echelon” group – the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

    For me, this is the least credible of the author’s assertions. I strongly suspect that the US military holds information it has not revealed, but I very much doubt that it has shared this knowledge with its intelligence partners – certainly not Canada. The US only shares information with other governments when it is in its own best interests to do so.

    Webre states that the alleged disinformation campaign about UFOs is due to the close relationship between the military and industry, the so-called “military-industrial complex” that President Dwight David Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address. They are the chief beneficiaries of the oil economy. Tapping into the knowledge of the Universe would ultimately lead us to higher forms of energy that would be ecologically sustainable, but that would make the oil economy irrelevant.


    God-fearing people will be relieved to know that there is nothing in Webre’s thesis, despite the considerable mind-stretch, that denies their fundamental beliefs. If there were, I would not be a party to it.


    Webre states, 

    • “Reunion with Universe civilizations will bring a closer relationship with God. The most advanced scientific reality in all creation is that God is Source.”

    To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a “Decade of Contact” – an “era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality.”


    That could be just the antidote the world needs to end its greed-driven, power-centered madness.

  9. Review by Jeane Manning


    Alfred Lambremont Webre makes a logical case for the assertion that “most of the story modern human beings have been told about Earth and its outer space environs is wrong.” He presents the hypothesis that Earth is a quarantined planet in a populated, evolving, highly organized inter-planetary, inter-galactic, multi-dimensional Universe society of life-bearing planets – and that the quarantine, which probably had a spiritual cause, may soon be ending. He argues that before being invited “in,” however, our society will have to kick its perpetual war habit.

    His brilliant treatise, Exopolitics, forms a conceptual bridge between the familiar, locked in, consensually limited thinking of our terrestrial society and the expanded options that humanity will enjoy in what Webre calls “Universe Society.” In light of my chosen areas of interest and advocacy – especially, socio-economic, environmental, geopolitical, and spiritual awareness issues related to truly paradigm-shifting energy inventions – I find that, for me, his insights ring true.

    Exopolitics fits conceptually within the models provided by frontier science that envision an endlessly creative Universe. Instead of the 20th century model, in which entropy rules and the Universe is dying and will run down someday, dissident physicists, such as those aligned with the international Natural Philosophers’ Alliance, point to ongoing creation as well as dissolution as a principle underlying how the Universe is structured.


    As a journalist who has interviewed heretical physicists and engineers for two decades now on various continents, I have witnessed the testing of at least a few prototypes of non-conventional converters that undeniably tap into some previously unrecognized source of energy in the Universe. I’ve met well-educated researchers who, over the years, have put together laboratories containing used or built-from-scratch equipment that would have cost more than a million dollars; these were not stereotypical “garage inventors.”


    Some of them have the benefit of advice from seasoned scientists who are open to seriously investigating new (or rediscovered) ether-based science. They refer to the new science as “zero-point energy,” a term that is more easily accepted in today’s physics vernacular than the supposedly disproved concept of “the ether.” Relatively few academics (and even fewer members of the public) know that the famous Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887, that attempted to measure the Earth’s velocity, through the ether, and didn’t, was conducted on the basis of a mistaken assumption about the qualities of “the ether,” or background energy of the Universe.


    Later experiments by Dayton Miller and others yielded a truer picture, but that is beyond the scope of this review. The website presents evidence, 18 derived from experiments by Dr. Paulo and Alexandra Correa of Canada, for a universal, mass-free energy.

    Having majored in sociology rather than the hard sciences at university, I rely on experts with the requisite technical background to interpret developments in the new science for me and to judge the merits of energy-generating inventions. My interest is in the social implications of clean energy sources that have enough energy density to free humanity from its perceived need for carbon-based fuels and nuclear fission. An even stronger passion is the spiritual implications of the new energy, which sheds light on the age-old insight of the great sages and mystics that “everything is interconnected.”


    On a technical level, the search to understand an emerging science related to abundant energy sources challenges independent scientists around the world. In some cases, their energy-generating inventions seem to “have a mind of their own” and will, practically speaking, most likely be unreliable until the researchers have more complete knowledge about the etheric energy (or other energy fields) that their “cosmic windmills” seem to be tapping into.

    Meanwhile, financial, corporate, and political interest groups actively oppose independent efforts, so much so that in some places, the relentless search for understanding has gone underground. I’ve interviewed credible researchers who report vandalized laboratories, threats on their lives, or, more often, charming con men that promise funding that never materializes. At best, they waste months of an inventor’s time in meetings and unmet promises of funding. At worst, inventors have found themselves enmeshed in financial difficulties or even put in jail after innocently believing such individuals. We can only speculate as to who or what unleashes such troublemakers onto gifted but vulnerable inventors.

    I have seen their revolutionary energy converters tap into a cosmic source of energy and put out useable electric or thermal power for hours at a time. Of course, these are only the crude, initial efforts of a new technology. More sophisticated versions are 19 rumored to reside in laboratories associated with the “Unacknowledged Special Access Programs” (USAPs) of the military-industrial-intelligence complex.


    I have witnessed demonstrations of various types of inventions, such as solid-state arrangements of magnets and circuits, in which the Coefficient of Performance was greater than “1” – where more output was achieved than was invested from any recognizable power source. With a few exceptions, such as the Patterson Power Cell, these demonstrations were done in private. Shadowy groups have on numerous occasions threatened inventors of revolutionary energy devices, and over the years this has engendered a climate of fear. As a result of this fear, as well as competitive patenting, financial, and commercial factors, inventors have become secretive and somewhat averse to publicity.

    Despite these social constraints, “new energy” research and development is progressing. Its progress has been halting and painfully slow, because, in my opinion, the prevailing worldview on Earth cannot embrace the concept of abundance. The prevailing view is that our species is doomed to perpetual warfare over scarce resources. There is ample evidence that ordinary humans prefer to be cooperative neighbors instead of competent soldiers, but that fact is too often overlooked.


    The halting progress includes new hydrogen energy production. The website contains numerous scientific papers about remarkable experimental results, including the transmutation of elements. General discussions for experimenters in all areas of new energy can be found on the JLN Labs website. A source of breaking news is

    Exopolitics states that we, the human race, are collectively the exo-government, the planetary Universe society. This is also the position taken by the emerging grassroots movement that is pursuing new energy research and development. That movement is in its infancy, but an organization called the New Energy Movement, at, is dedicated to nurturing and sustaining it.

    I highly recommend Alfred Lambremont Webre’s new book, Exopolitics. It inspires hope for a better future, one in which humanity progresses beyond its present addictions to petroleum and war, and beyond its resistance to beneficial change, toward a higher level of spiritual awareness.


    My own experiences validate his assertion that the Universe is ultimately a spiritual domain.

  10. Review by Michael Mannion


    Human understanding of the extraterrestrial phenomenon has evolved gradually over the past half-century. At first, there were arguments about whether the UFO-ET phenomenon was real or not. Next, the discussion moved to an exploration of the nature and purpose of the phenomenon. Today, a conversation is beginning about initiating conscious human interaction with the life forms – the expressions of Nature –that we are calling “extraterrestrials.”

    Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe is an exciting new book by Alfred Webre, a former futurist at the Stanford Research Institute, advisor to the Carter administration on the extraterrestrial question, and Fulbright scholar, who received his law degree from Yale. At present, he is the International Director of the International Institute for Cooperation in Space and founder of the No Weapons in Space Campaign. He is an activist working to prevent the weaponization of space and to transform our economy from one based on war to one based on peace and sustainability.


    This fascinating book introduces readers to the subject of Exopolitics, which the author defines as “how a highly populated and regulated Universe governs itself,” as well as to the existence of an organized interstellar “Universe society.” Webre envisions possible conscious contact between Earth society and Universe society in the near future. This direct contact can only occur if humanity itself, not merely individual human beings, heals and undergoes a transformation.

    In Webre’s words,

    • “The transformation starts within each of us; for we ourselves are the Universe transformation… We are the new universal human being.”

    To achieve such a radical shift in our existence will require an open mind and a fearless willingness to let go of long-standing errors that are deeply embedded in our religions and science. Adherence to these erroneous views blocks our ability to understand the true nature of the Universe and how it functions.

    The central aim of Exopolitics is to create a mass awareness of the fact that we live in a Universe composed of many organized civilizations. How does the author think that this can be accomplished? He proposes launching a “Decade of Contact,” a period of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about the reality of extraterrestrial civilization and our connection to it.

    Webre believes that Earth has been placed under “quarantine” by the Universe society but that there may now be an opening to change that status. His social activism is an example of what humanity needs to do to help end this quarantine. In his view,

    • “In a Universe society, love rather than conflict is the central organizing principle among advanced societies.”

    Unfortunately, on our planet, war is presently the organizing principle.

    Take the time to listen to the message of Exopolitics. We all have a lot of work to do so that humanity can re-enter the cosmic community. Remember – you are the transformation that is needed to make this possibility a reality.

  11. Review by R. Leo Sprinkle


    Any review of a scholarly work should address three questions: What is the stated goal of the author? How well does the author meet that goal? How does the book contribute to the literature of that discipline or special field?

    The reader of a review should be given not only an intellectual assessment of the book, but also some insights into the author’s intents and achievements, as perceived by the reviewer. Thus, the reader of the review can determine the bias of the reviewer and then decide whether to buy and/or read the book.
    The author of the book that you are about to read, Exopolitics, both educates and exhorts the reader to accept a bold and optimistic view of Earth and humanity. Well written, and well edited, the book explores the status of an isolated planet that is ready to join the cosmic community – “Universe society.”

    The author, Alfred Lambremont Webre, has advanced degrees in law and applied psychology. He offers his readers the results of many professional activities, including his work as a futurist at Stanford Research Institute. In 1977, he directed a project to develop an extraterrestrial (ET) communication proposal for the White House staff during President Jimmy Carter’s Administration.

    Exopolitics provides an outline, or a model, for evaluating the current status and possible future of humanity. The stated goal is to provide a bridge between the current concept of Earth as an isolated planet and the future concept of Earth as a member of cosmic cultures, in a multidimensional Universe society. Webre prepares the reader not only for changes in political “realities,” but also for changes in scientific “realities.”


    He emphasizes the principle of a holographic Universe. Both spiritual and material dimensions are ONE. Thus, spiritual and ethical, as well as scientific and technical, development, are signs of a planetary society that is ready for universal “reunion” in politics, government, and law.

    Webre addresses a variety of questions:

    • Is the story of the Garden of Eden a reflection of human origins in a cosmic context?

    • Is Earth isolated because of quarantine by ET societies?

    • Is humanity’s history of violence – and current plans for military weapons in space – a significant factor in any quarantine by ET societies?

    • Was there a rebellion by Earth’s “gods,” or governors, against the administrators of a larger cosmic community?

    • Is the UFO phenomenon an indication of the strategy of an ET program?

    • Does the Disclosure Project represent the means by which humanity formally recognizes the ET presence?

    The author offers the concepts of “reflectivity” and “dimensionality” as methods by which humans become aware of higher consciousness and higher truth. Thus, both external (empirical) and internal (intuitive) methods are emphasized for exploring and evaluating truth.

    For example, Webre uses the results of various public opinion polls as evidence to support dual hypotheses:

    • Most adults are aware of both the ET presence and the UFO cover-up. Approximately half of U.S. adults agree with the statement that ETs are visiting Earth, and more than half agree with the statement that governmental officials are withholding information about UFO reports.

    Webre states:

    • “A transformational Exobiology, Exoarcheology, and Exopolitics would construct a bridge of knowledge and relationship with advanced civilizations in the Universe.”

    He calls for a Decade of Contact to prepare humanity for its alignment with Universe society.

    In the reviewer’s opinion, the author has done well in describing his goal, which is to present a model of Universe politics, and an approach by which humanity might align itself with the law and governance of a Universe society. Has the author done well in meeting that goal? The reviewer recognizes that there can be a variety of evaluations, depending upon the attitudes of any reader.

    The general reader might ask: How does the author know about Universe laws and government? Observation? Intuition? Information from ET societies? Persons of “enlightened” views (from meditation, UFO and ET encounters, and advanced education) are likely to applaud as well as agree with Webre. Persons with “practical” concerns (e.g., job security, skepticism about intellectuals, and fear of “aliens”) are not likely to read the book or react to the model. Persons with certain affiliations or “special interests” (e.g., scientism, religiosity, and covert operations) are likely to discount the model and reject the book.

    Perhaps the current “game” will continue, in which the dominant culture maintains that “logical positivism” is the method and “physical evidence” is the measure of the method. If current conditions continue, then the UFO cover-up will continue, and the dominant culture will continue to deny the ET presence.

    Webre argues that conditions, however, are changing. There are a variety of Earth conditions (e.g., pollution, global warming, and extinction of plants and animals) and a variety of human concerns (e.g., wars, cultural and religious conflicts, the gap between the rich and poor, and suppression of free energy technologies) that calls out for a new view of Earth and a new view of humanity.

    Does the model of Exopolitics provide that perspective? How does the book Exopolitics contribute to the literature on Exopolitics?

    The literature on Exopolitics can be grouped into four categories:

    1. Statements from writers of channeled messages from extraterrestrial (ET) or extradimensional (ED) entities, which describe ET or multidimensional communities

    2. Reports from persons who describe encounters with ET/ED beings, and the messages from the beings about their worlds

    3. Reports from persons who describe travels to other planets, or dimensions, and their observations of those communities

    4. Comments from writers who analyze statements (e.g., “science fiction,” speculation, and UFO/ET experiences) about various topics of Exopolitics.

    This review cannot summarize the vast literature of ET contact (consider the Vedic traditions, the writings of Zecharia Sitchin, the Old and New Testament), but it can give a few examples of recent writings for comparison with Exopolitics. Members of the current scientific community usually focus on the physical and biological conditions that are needed for life to emerge on other (distant) planets. They may be supportive of SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), but they seldom view UFO reports as an indication of ET visitation.

    That gap between many scientists and most UFO investigators may be narrowing. For example, a recent article that explores the ET hypothesis – “Inflation-Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitation,” Journal of the British Interplanetary Society, vol. 58, 2005, pp. 43-50) was written by James Deardorff, Bernard Haisch, Bruce Maccabee, and Hal E. Puthoff, who are mainstream scientists as well as UFO investigators.

    Few psychologists and psychiatrists have participated in UFO research. The death of John Mack, M.D. in 2004, however, was the subject of several editorials, including Stephen Basset’s “Exopolitics” column in the December-January 2005 edition of UFO magazine, pp. 16-18. - Dr. Mack a professor of psychiatry at Harvard University, had authored two books on UFO “abductees,” and he had founded the Program for Extraordinary Experience Research (PEER).


    Philip Krapf, a former news editor for the Los Angeles Times, has described his visits aboard ships of an ET civilization and their plans for contact with nations on Earth. Courtney Brown, Ph.D., a professor of political science, has described his sessions of remote viewing, and his analysis of the political structure of an ET civilization. C.B.


    Scott” Jones, Ph.D. convened a group of international speakers in 1995, at a conference called When Cosmic Cultures Meet. The purpose of the conference, held in Washington, D.C., was to prepare both the public and government officials for possible disclosure of the ET presence.

    The Disclosure Project, directed by Steven Greer, M.D., has videotaped testimony from hundreds of former military and government officials about their knowledge of the UFO cover-up.

    Michael Salla, Ph.D., author of Exopolitics: Political Implications of the Extraterrestrial Presence, has reviewed international politics as influenced by the ET presence. He attempts to evaluate the levels of evidence for various aspects of the “politics of Exopolitics.”

    Paul von Ward, author of Gods, Genes, and Consciousness, analyzes evidence from various sources (archeological, cultural, genetic, historical, and technical knowledge) that ABs (Advanced Beings) have helped humans to establish Earth civilizations. His focus on “religious” traditions, and “scientific” traditions, provides an analysis of factors that sustain wars and other conflicts among cultures and nations. He offers an approach to ease the conflicts between different cultures with different “gods.”


    Ida M. Kannenberg has authored a fourth book, Reconciliation, with the assistance of high-level entities, THOTH and TRES. She analyzes the argument that humanity is spiritually ready to reassess its relationship with other levels of cosmic consciousness.

    Lisette Larkins has authored three books on her communications with ETs, emphasizing that anyone can communicate, telepathically, with extraterrestrial beings. These brief examples indicate that a wide array of literature is available for any reader who wishes to evaluate the contribution of Webre and his model of Exopolitics.


    If the reader of the review has doubts about intuitive processes for apprehending “truth,” then the book, Power Versus Force, by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., can provide an empirical method for assessing levels of consciousness or calibrating levels of truth. If you have doubts about the UFO cover-up, then UFOs and the National Security State, a history by Richard Dolan, can provide the historical information needed to accept the reality of the ET presence and the UFO cover-up.

    In my opinion, the author of this volume, Alfred Lambremont Webre, has presented to readers a small package that contains a huge gift – a new vision of humanity’s place in the Cosmos. Most books about Exopolitics are written from the perspective of humanity, or from the perspective of the individual writer. Webre has provided a perspective of universal law and government that rises above the mundane politics of humanity and Earth, and views humans not as Planetary Persons but as Cosmic Citizens.

    When the reader is ready, his Exopolitics provides an individual and collective blueprint for developing a social structure on Earth that assists humanity, in a Decade of Contact, to join and participate in Universe society.

  12. Review by Dr. Brian O’Leary


    Exopolitics explores a possible – and, if true, very important – cosmic view that the Universe is governed by advanced beings in higher spiritual and physical space, of which most of us on Earth are not aware or barely aware. According to this view, a long time ago, powerful Earthlings rebelled against the universal order, and we all got quarantined, driven away, temporarily, from the Garden of Eden, cut off from the richness of the interplanetary culture. Alfred Webre argues that we might be getting closer to the time of revelation and initiation.

    Webre’s hypothesis of this greater reality mirrors a powerful intuition, now shared by half of humanity, that we are not alone in the Universe. Many of those, in turn, believe that we are being visited and monitored to determine whether we should be permitted to emerge from the intergalactic quarantine. But these efforts are obviously being resisted by the plutocracy of vested interests in perpetual warfare and unsustainable resource exploitation – interests that suppress our transcendent truth for the sake of consolidating their own greed and power.

    Much of this book rings true. Certainly, our civilization cannot go on as we have. We will need all the help we can get to lift ourselves out of tyranny, genocide, and ecocide. So why not reach out toward those who are clearly more wise? Undoubtedly, more empirical evidence is needed to bolster the case for the ET presence and intention. Some of this is to be found in the excellent research of the late Dr. John Mack at Harvard. The contactees that Dr. Mack worked with have repeatedly reported the great sense of urgency that some off-planet cultures feel towards reversing humanity’s destruction of Earth’s environment.

    In this work, intuition plus admittedly incomplete science combine to form a very compelling case for understanding why we may have been exposed to the UFO/ET phenomenon, yet at the same time are so cut off from and confused about the extraterrestrial realities that underlie the evidence.

by Courtney Brown, Ph.D.


Courtney Brown, Ph.D. is an associate professor of political science at Emory University. He is the founder of the Farsight Institute, a non-profit research and educational organization dedicated to the study of the “remote viewing” phenomenon.

As recently as the first half of the 1990s, the dominant sense among most of the scientific community, as reported in the mainstream media, was that it is highly improbable that many other planets exist orbiting stars other than our own Sun. That is, many intelligent scientists held firmly to the view that Earth is a galactic anomaly. Planets orbiting other suns were assumed to be a rarity, and so Earth-type planets orbiting other suns were deemed to be exceptionally rare. This, of course, was a prelude to the belief that life in places other than Earth was doubtful in the extreme.


The unspoken fear among these same scientists was that we might not really be alone in this Universe, and indeed, there may not be that much special about us at all. From a scientific perspective, the proposition that the phenomenon of planets orbiting other suns would be a rare event has always been ludicrous. We live in a solar system with at least nine known major planets, a full-size asteroid belt, a host of comets, zillions of meteors, and enormous quantities of dust, all of which orbit our Sun.


Moreover, most of the planets in our solar system have their own systems of moons.


The only reasonable rule to draw from our own experience with our solar system is that nature seems to favor many bodies orbiting other bodies. Statistically, we have a sample of one (that is, one solar system) about which we know a great deal. Scientifically, we have no recourse but to establish our sample of one as the expected mean (that is, arithmetic average) for all solar systems – until additional data can be obtained and averaged, thereby allowing us to modify our estimate of this mean. We must also assume that there will be a distribution around this mean, which requires that some solar systems will have more planets, and other solar systems will have fewer planets.

More specifically, there will be an expected mean or average number of planets orbiting each star, and the distribution of such planets orbiting their stars must have a standard deviation. This is a most basic application of statistics, and all scientists are wedded to the underlying mathematical assumptions of such things. To assume that our solar system is unique in our galaxy is to claim that our sample of one is an outlier, an anomaly.


It is impossible to make this claim without a prior knowledge of the distribution of planets around other solar systems, since the idea of an outlier only makes sense in the context of a distribution. To insist, nonetheless, that our solar system is unique in the universe thus violates a widely accepted approach to scientific thinking.


Viewed in this light, the claim of uniqueness is an extreme position. Let us now consider the obvious fact that our own solar system was created out of the same collection of cosmic dust from which all other solar systems were created in our area of the galaxy. It is doubtful that one would find much difference in the chemical makeup of our solar system in direct comparison with other solar systems within, say, a 100-light year radius. Since we all came out of the same cosmic soup, it is likely that there are many nearby solar systems in which planets exist which support conditions favorable to the initiation of life.


Going back to statistics, we have a sample of one planet (that is, our Earth) in which life is phenomenally abundant and possesses tremendous variety. Life exists in all sorts of environmental extremes on this planet. Moreover, we finally have clear and unambiguous evidence that Mars also was once a warm and wet world, and scientists now confidently claim that meteors originating from Mars contain fossil evidence of Martian microbial life. Thus, we have a sample of one solar system in which life either exists or has existed on two planets.


This must be our initial guess of the assumed expected mean for other solar systems, at least with respect to those solar systems residing within our neck of the galactic woods. There really is no alternative interpretation presently available to science, at least not in the absence of additional information suggesting something to the contrary. Now we must turn to the topic of intelligent life. Intelligence is merely a matter of degree. If life has enough time in its evolutionary calendar, it is virtually certain that eventually 32 one species on each life-supporting world will evolve in the direction of a larger and more capable brain. This will increase that species’ ability to compete with less intelligent animals for food and survival.


As is suggested by Edward O. Wilson’s theories on the evolution of intelligence, bigger and more capable brains constitute a physiological trait comparable to other evolving physiological traits, and there is no evolutionary law prohibiting the development of any particular trait. From my perspective, the only reasonable and scientifically defensible conclusion that can be drawn from all of the above is that warm and wet Earth-type planets must be abundant, at least in our galaxy (although probably beyond it as well), and that life must be common. Moreover, given that time is the primary ingredient necessary for the evolution of intelligence, it seems most likely that intelligent life surrounds us as well.


Where is the evidence of such life?


Just 10 years ago most mainstream scientists were asking the same type of question about the existence of planets orbiting other suns. Recent astronomical discoveries indicate that planets are much more common than was once thought, and scientists are just now considering the proposition that planets may indeed be ubiquitous. Similarly, I must argue that time will tell with respect to the matter of life on other worlds. It seems clear to me that the evidence of such life will eventually be found without ambiguity. Indeed, many would suggest (as I have done elsewhere) that ambiguity in regard to this matter is of our own making, that extraterrestrial life has already discovered us, and that our own governmental and corporate interests have prevented the masses from recognizing the obvious.


Until this is resolved, doubting scientists still need to wrestle with the contradiction implied by their “convenient” dismissal of basic extrapolations of statistical theory. From a statistical perspective, to claim that a sample of one is an initial estimate of a mean is not extreme. To claim with fervent certainty that the sample of one is an outlier is both extreme and (at least in my mind) scientifically untenable. If such scientists argue that life on Earth is unique, then they must offer a compelling reason as to why we should not assume that life in our solar system is a sample of one, and that our first approximation of the average probability of life in other realms should not be drawn from the known traits of our own solar system.

Following a similar logic, it seems clear to me that intelligent life is a widespread reality in our galaxy, and we should begin to address the political as well as the scientific implications of this. Again, viewing our own planet as a sample of one, we have many cultures residing on Earth. Organizations have naturally formed on this planet, both as a means of defense from hostile neighbors and as a way to foster economic growth.


As our planetary civilization has grown, the general trend over the thousands of years seems to be in the direction of avoiding war and building economies, although there do seem to have been some notable short-term exceptions to this more general historical trend. Thus, my suggestion is that we treat our own experience again as a sample of one. Where there is intelligent life in our galaxy, this life will most certainly tend to self-organize.


Following this thought, we are not then merely surrounded by intelligent life, but by intelligent life that is organized into various groupings. Indeed, if our own planetary civilization can come up with the idea of a United Nations, I am certain that extraterrestrial civilizations would have no difficulty finding use for (and then developing) their own interplanetary versions of such an organization. I see no escape from the likelihood that there is some type of organization that exists among our nearby worlds that might as well be called a “Galactic Federation.”

It is probable that there are natural limits to the size of political organizations of extraterrestrial worlds. That is, if there are, say, 60,000 planets in our galaxy that sustain intelligent life at any given time, then it is unlikely that all 60,000 would find the need to participate in a so-called “Galactic Federation.” Indeed, I would think it much more likely that much smaller organizations would form which would serve the needs of their member societies with a greater eye toward “local service.”


Thus, an organization that would effectively serve our region of our galaxy may have only a few hundred members.


More than that might prove unwieldy. Should there be a need to defend the interests of one member of such an organization from, say, the interloping activities of an outside group, it seems hardly conceivable that the resources of the entire galaxy would be required to defend those interests. A more manageable number of participants in such an organization would more likely be ideal – not so many as to be lost in the 34 deck, but enough to offer a measure of collective security.


This brings me to the topic of Alfred Webre’s new book on the topic of Exopolitics. Webre’s perspective of how we should approach the issue of human interactions with organized extraterrestrial life is one that needs to be considered among the various alternative approaches. Thus, this book really is essential reading for anyone interested in the subject of intelligent extraterrestrial life. It seems to me obvious that as soon as one realizes that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists, the very next question is not a scientific one, but a political one.


Moreover, one question leads inevitably to another.

  • How does one interact with this life?

  • How is it organized?

  • Does it belong to an extraterrestrial organization?

  • Do such organizations form for the purpose of planetary defense, or is there an alternate rationale for their existence?

  • Are there interloping groups or societies about which there are elements of concern?

  • Do extraterrestrial societies interact competitively, cooperatively, or both?

  • What are the goals that drive such societies?

Since it is reasonable to assume that interplanetary societies would have no difficulty finding natural resources such as water and minerals among any number of uninhabited worlds, what currency would such societies find valuable? Would genetic materials governing the variety of life be of ultimate value to such extraterrestrial civilizations? These are the sorts of questions that we simply cannot avoid any longer.


Webre bravely inserts himself into this debate in its most formative stage of development. We all need to consider what he has to say. Some may claim that Alfred Webre’s views are utopian. This may or may not be true, and we will never know until we probe further into such issues. Meanwhile, Webre’s views are without doubt a valid “first take” on the overall issue of how humans should interact with intelligent extraterrestrial life.


Noting Webre’s background, it may at first seem odd that the matter of extraterrestrial intelligence should be so quickly engaged by a person trained in matters of law. But this is the nature of self-organizing intelligence. Organizations survive because they embrace rules governing individual and collective behavior. Lawyers are trained to first understand those rules and then operationalize them. Science will help us to recognize that intelligent life other than our own exists in 35 this Universe. After that, the lawyers and politicians will take over.


Webre sees this far in advance of most others, and he wants to set the tone for the future political debates that are as inevitable as they will be profound. This is a book that we all need to have read before these debates become widespread in our society, before we are gripped by a fear of the new and the unknown that seems so readily to spring from within us. I suspect that fear will play no useful role in our future interactions with the extraterrestrials. We need to abandon fear.

Right now, if we could only get our species to look up with wonder at the potential vastness of life and its inherent complexity, we would be on a much better track than our current embrace of denial offers us. Webre’s book is a hopeful and inspiring outlook concerning our future as a species.


This is an outlook worth exploring in its fullness.



by Paul Davids


Paul Davids was the executive producer and co-writer of the film Roswell, starring Kyle MacLachlan, Martin Sheen, and Dwight Yoakam, which was nominated for a Golden Globe Award as Best Television Motion Picture of 1994.

TIME magazine has an annual practice of selecting The Man (or Woman) of the Year. A more appropriate ritual for the new millennium might be to select The Mind of the Year, and if that were so, Alfred Lambremont Webre would rank high on my list of suggested nominees.


Among modern philosophers, Webre finds himself one of a very select few at the center of the birth of a discipline of critical importance for the future – Exopolitics. Exopolitics is the name of a new field of knowledge, research, philosophy, and imagination. Its purpose is to explore the relationship of humanity – past, present, and future – to other intelligent species originating from elsewhere in the Universe, including beings that may exist in other dimensions of time-space. Exopolitics shares a common inspiration with exobiology (the study of extraterrestrial life forms) and exo-archeology (the study of what might prove to be extraterrestrial structures and monuments on other celestial bodies).


These disciplines are currently filled with much speculation, because the so-called “hard facts” are not yet transparent. One thing is certain, however, and that is that we are living at the beginning of an upheaval in modern thought as momentous as the Darwinian, Freudian, Einsteinian, and Watson-Crickian scientific leaps of thought that shaped the last century. The theories that underpin evolution, psychoanalysis, relativity, and DNA all suffered a difficult birth. So shall it be with Exopolitics.

Just as was the case with each of these other cornerstones of modern thought, the world has not yet woken up to the fact that the intellectual ground is about to shift under our feet all over again. In the case of Exopolitics, what lies ahead will be a cataclysm of momentous concepts that will move “Heaven and Earth” – or at least re-structure our thinking about humanity’s place in the scheme of things. By this I mean much more than that our physical place in the Universe will be redefined. Exopolitics expands the biological scale upwards from where it now ends, with human beings at the pinnacle.

For centuries, man has declared himself King of the Universe. Webre is a leader among those heralding the unpopular news that the King of the Universe is about to lose his crown. So swiftly will we be deposed, and such a blow will it be to the human ego, that there will be, in many quarters, a reactionary rejection of Webre’s central idea. That rejection is likely to continue for as long as humanly possible and not a moment less. Paul Revere once said, “One if by land, two if by sea.”


Alfred Webre declares, “One if by land, two if by sea, three if from outer space!”


The British establishment had nothing good to say about Paul Revere in the days of the American Revolution. And the establishment of the so-called civilized world today will probably have few niceties for the author of this book, at least for the moment. As in past eras of history, there will surely be a widespread desire to punish the messenger because of disdain for his message.

But what is the message? It is an affirmation of what science, politics and government have done their utmost to deny – that the universe is vastly populated, throughout, by advanced biological species that are so far beyond us, that in many cases we are mere children by comparison. Arthur C. Clarke sounded the same message in his landmark work of science fiction, Childhood’s End. In that book, the arrival of other species from distant regions of space marked the end of the intellectual childhood of the human race, and the beginning of our first glimpse of biological reality on a universal scale.


The book that you now hold in your hands purports to be something quite different from science fiction: a fairly precise outline of facts you may never have considered before. It is a “treatise.” So was Sigmund Freud’s An Outline of Psychoanalysis. Both share the trait that they are, more or less, 100 pages long. They also share the characteristic that they are cornerstones of new thought. Brevity can move mountains when it strikes its target like an arrow piercing the bulls-eye, and Webre, like Freud, fully intends to move mountains, for the spirit of his treatise is, Upon this Rock shall the Future of Humankind be Built!

President Reagan once stood before the United Nations General Assembly and wondered aloud about what the effect would be if the human race were threatened by some alien civilization from “out there.” For Webre, however, the issue is not one of a threat. It is an issue of the true nature of the relationship between interplanetary species. On a universal scale, he sets forth purported interactions of beings from multiple worlds that are tantamount to a sort of intergalactic diplomacy. That diplomacy, as in Webre’s title, includes politics, government and law, but on a universal scale. By contrast, the politics, government and laws of Earth are seen as mere holograms of larger realities and cosmic principles.

I was asked to write this foreword because I was principally involved in the Showtime original motion picture Roswell, a film that challenged the old order of thinking that still claims that no contact with ET intelligence has yet occurred. This film raised the specter of government secrecy and the desire of authorities to refrain from revealing the facts about intelligent extraterrestrial life forms to the public.


Roswell opened the floodgates on these issues. It presented a rather relentless case that highly placed officials and powerful institutions within the United States government have secreted the hard-core, open-and-shut evidence of advanced extraterrestrial life since at least 1947. It dramatized the notion that the art of lying about what is secretly and officially known about visitors from outer space has become an institutionalized and ironclad policy. Roswell explores the theme that not only has there been a never-ending policy of deceit and denial, but there has been an effort to trivialize this subject of paramount importance and to stigmatize those who take it seriously.


Efforts have been made to relegate flying saucers, aliens, and space visitors who arrived on our planet in ancient times to the realm of “fringe” subjects, the domain of eccentrics and kooks. And why would such a policy have been implemented? Jack Nicholson said it best in another film, A Few Good Men, when he declared, “Because you can’t handle the truth!” But the truth would not have been concealed with such effort merely to save the majority of us psychotherapy bills. There would have been many other advantages to withholding the 39 facts of extraterrestrial contact. These included issues of political control and economic power.

A decade following the first broadcast of our movie, I can’t swear on a stack of Bibles that its premise is fact. I wasn’t there when the Roswell event happened. However, to accept the official view – that nothing of consequence happened at Roswell – one has to disregard the sworn testimony of dozens of military men and civilians who were in Roswell at the time, and whose affidavits and testimonials are all on public display at the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico. Hollywood and science fiction novelists have long had the intriguing new field of Exopolitics all to themselves.


Think back to 1950, and The Day The Earth Stood Still, when Klaatu, the name of the alien played by Michael Rennie, stood on the rim of his flying saucer before the throngs of Washington, DC and gave a blunt ultimatum to the human race.


To paraphrase his message of admonition, he said,

“Abandon your war-faring ways, for if you fail to do so, if you attempt to take your weapons into space and thereby threaten other civilizations in the Universe, you will be destroyed by powers that you cannot even imagine. The choice is yours.”

That was one of the cinema’s first dramatizations of Exopolitics.

In The War of the Worlds, which was one of four seminal motion pictures producer George Pal contributed to the realm of Exopolitics, based on the novel by H. G. Wells, the human race had not even a choice about its ultimate fate. The choice had already been made by land-grabbing Martians to annihilate us. The same occurred once again in Independence Day, but they weren’t from Mars. In Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek, the universal Exopolitics proved complex precisely because the Universe was populated with so many species that had different agendas and goals.


In George Lucas’s Star Wars, we learned that the Exopolitics of interplanetary relations began “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away,” and that those relations were none too friendly. In films such as Cocoon and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the aliens came for a select few of us, and those few seemed to be promised a life of harmony “up 40 there.” In Fire in the Sky, the aliens who abducted Travis Walton seemed to have less angelic plans for his experience in space, and they soon spewed him out, putting him back on terra firma as naked as the day he was born.


In Forbidden Planet, the Exopolitics of time and space came under the control of one scientist, Dr. Morbius, who while stranded on the planet Altair 4, mastered the advanced, secret technologies of a long-extinct alien race, the Krell, which he offered to dole out in small bits and pieces to Earth only when he, in his “infinite wisdom,” saw fit to do so. So, to paraphrase the classic song, what’s it all about, Alfred? I think it’s appropriate to pose that question to the author, because Alfred Lambremont Webre is one of the few who may have now actually answered the question, and in the very work that follows.


His answer goes something like this:

We sometimes call ourselves “The Children of God.” Indeed, even when we are elderly we are still essentially like children, newborns in an ancient Universe, in which biological intelligence has developed many times, in many places across the vastness of space, a Universe in which one species has begotten others, using the tools of genetic engineering, again and again, throughout the eons of time.

In the Universe according to Webre, most of the other neighbors in the Universe know one another. They have formed what Webre calls “Universe Society.” They also know us, the people of Earth. One problem has been that we do not know them. Another problem has been that they have placed us under quarantine. We are contained, like the lepers of Molokai in a previous century. But the duration of our quarantine may be coming to a close, and that will create both great opportunities and cause powerful shock waves for humanity.


A third problem has been that a long line of American Presidents, as well as the New York Times, TIME, news anchors from Walter Cronkite to Tom Brokaw, Senators and Congressmen, university science professors, directors of NASA, and other authoritative voices about Who’s Who and What’s What, have all denied that there is any proof that intelligent extraterrestrial species exist and that they have visited Earth. They have chosen instead to open the door just a crack, by offering 41 fossil evidence of ancient bacteria-like life forms from Mars, found in an ancient meteorite, and even that evidence is hotly disputed.

For those of us who have dealt with this problem in earnest, who have read every claim about alien-human contact, who have collected every testimonial of the several astronauts and the few other people of renown who have “talked,” the evidence for advanced extraterrestrial life appears to be quite overwhelming. We can see that the problem has been that the lords and the ladies of establishment opinion have somehow managed to create an impenetrable veil of illusion, in which neither they nor the public can see the evidence that is right in front of our faces, nor even discuss extraterrestrial life without smirks and ridicule.


If the emperor has no clothes, they are certainly not admitting it. Fortunately, there are a few exceptions. Check out the provocative appendix of this book for the views of certain opinion leaders who do indeed believe that ET has not only phoned home, he has visited ours!

In the end, hopefully the truth will win out, for its arc is as long as the Universe is incomprehensibly vast. Pivotal works, such as Alfred Webre’s Exopolitics, may play an important role in preparing many minds to comprehend that down here on the planet Earth, the handwriting – of the aliens – is on the wall.
