The "Troublemaker" Gene
Not all alien megapopulations are alike. Some, like the Verdants,
may be more coldly controlling than others.
Verdants and IFSP (Intergalactic Federation of
Sovereign Planets) aliens have argued that they offer greater
networks and benefits, more scientific aid than is
available to smaller alignments or independents. Meanwhile,
independent populations argue that independents who
do their own research are more rigorously responsible for their
science, although their awareness may be relatively limited. In some
cases, independents reportedly trade with other planets in order to
meet certain needs. Eventually, of course, they’re drawn into larger
networks of interaction.
Presumably like other megapopulations, Verdants genetically engineer
IFSP populations to have larger brains, better disease or radiation
resistance, and so forth. Some of the IFSP’s gray aliens have even
been fitted with electronic implants in their brains, ostensibly for
security and communications reasons. However, using more advanced
technology, Verdants can probably track or psychotronically
influence implanted grays if they want to, which raises an important

The question is especially relevant
here, on Earth. The IFSP is now so deeply immersed in an abduction
and breeding program here that abductees have been told they can be
used for reproductive purposes because they "belong to" the
Secret Life, p. 128)
Richard Boylan, who
considers himself the IFSP’s leading "Councillor of Earth," wrote me
that the given aliens did genetic improvements of humankind in the
past, hence they have a right to intervene here because
us. Those were literally his words.
In a similar vein, Whitley Strieber once noted that his abductors’
main fear was human independence. Other abductees cite the
abductors’ plan to control Earth after an escalated crisis of some
sort. Abductee Reshma Kamal told David Jacobs that a late-stage
hybrid (who looks nearly human) explained about his aliens:
"And he’s saying all they’re
interested in, that no matter what happens at all, is that they
(The Threat, p. 250).
But why would a megapopulation want to
control other populations?
Control allows them to quickly replace old ideas and conventions
with the megapopulation’s preferences. Such people are easier to
assimilate and their planet’s resources easier to make use of,
afterwards. From the Verdant perspective, populations dispute less
among themselves when a more advanced authority is in control. But
how much "control" are we talking about? Reshma Kamal was told that
after the aliens get their way here, on Earth, the abductors will
have total control and national governments won’t be necessary
because there will be "one system" with "one goal."
Of course, the more drastic a target population’s predicament (i.e.
post-apocalyptic grays), the more quickly they can be altered and
assimilated, which suggests that some regime-minded megapopulations
may actually prefer to provoke escalated disasters on a target
planet. It’s a risky strategy because target populations can be
sharply critical of alien colonizers. They may be reluctant to give
up their independence, irrespective of the inducements.
Sometimes, a target people’s own colonial history will have been
repressive. So, why would they trust an alien colonizer? Perhaps
they don’t, in some cases. Perhaps it’s desperation that leads some
into the fold.
More chilling still, are indications that Verdants may actually try
to eliminate other aliens’ genes for emotion and sensitivity, genes
that might otherwise cause them to criticize Verdants or dispute
further takeovers. If there were too much empathy and sensitivity in
their genetic makeup, IFSP aliens might rebel at the conflicts and
atrocities that Verdant breeding program operatives cause on target
planets (i.e. those allegedly schemed by the IFSP’s "direct
operatives" here, on Earth). Humans who might question whether this
actually happens need to remember: the IFSP is a large aggregate
that has a long history of such doings. They admit to it.
So, in order to reduce tensions within the IFSP, are the genes for
troublemaking simply eliminated?
To do so would pose a different kind of danger, of course. On the
one hand, if certain genes are eliminated a target population may be
less war-like, less violent. They can be more easily controlled. On
the other hand, however, if they’re too easily controlled they may
sit passively and watch while wars are provoked among a target
people and crises are manipulated for advantage during subsequent
takeovers. Some genetically altered aliens may be less capable of
the empathy and outspokenness needed to protest manipulated crimes
against humanity or other target peoples. Cold, genetically modified
aliens may feel less need to speak out against Verdant predations,
both within the IFSP and against future target planets.
Evidence for this is seen in abductee reports about aliens who
inflicted great pain as if to condition them, and aliens who watched
while a dazed adult human was forced to rape an adolescent female
abductee, apparently as part of an experiment. (Secret Life, p.
203-4) The IFSP’s use of girls as young as age 11 for reproduction
purposes is further evidence of emotional disconnect. Non-IFSP
aliens allege much worse, i.e. the many crimes against humanity
attributed to the IFSP’s "direct operatives."
Of course, IFSP aliens say their work introduces humans to higher
order community of mind, a deeper sentience, yet non-IFSP aliens
suggest that the IFSP isn’t yet a community of mind but is, instead,
a psychotronically-policed empire, of sorts. So, we see the irony of
highly intelligent, seemingly peaceful aliens who have been altered
so that they can quietly, obediently create and infiltrate direct
operatives onto a target planet to orchestrate epic crimes in the
name of the alignment’s expansion, which they rationalize as an
Meanwhile, internal IFSP propaganda isn’t about takeovers and
manipulated conflicts. Instead, a target population is first
stigmatized as primitive or dangerous, external to the IFSP, before
breeding and manipulated conflicts programs are begun to "pacify"
them. Internal IFSP discussions about such policies can be made to
sound quite wholesome, from such perspective.
To a certain extent, lesser IFSP aliens can be selectively bred so
that they will say little about atrocities and corruptions caused by
IFSP operatives on successive target planets. Verdants claim to have
eliminated bad genes in order to improve the constitution of such
aliens, yet after more than 100 million years of interventions Verdants know how to locate, identify, and eliminate or alter those
"troublemaker" genes that can be so unsettling.
The end result can be a disaster in some respects: inwardly
repressed and compliant subordinate aliens who don’t quite feel the
pain and horror of a target population. And, by keeping the train of
genetic "improvements" ever in motion among lesser member
populations, when discontent arises Verdants can step in and tinker
with troublesome genes.
Abductee Andrea told Dr. John Mack about the emotional sterility of
"They’ve lost their home inside themselves… they’ve
evolved to something that’s not quite right, that has something
lacking. Their heart centers are not as open as they should be. They
have a feeling level that they’ve bred out."
(Passport to the
Cosmos, p. 249)
Other abductees say alien females who work in
nurseries raising babies harvested from abductees are coolly
mechanical and don’t handle the babies affectionately. The emotional
sterility of such aliens is oft-noted in abductee reports.
Some humans say abducting aliens study them, curious about human
feelings that they, themselves, seem to lack. One human-alien hybrid
told abductee Reshma Kamal that he feels like a robot. When
asked whether the hybrid had at least some feelings, the hybrid
"Even if I had those emotions, what good are they because
nothing will happen? We’re just here to do work…"
Looking at his
alien superiors, the hybrid said, "We have to do everything they
say…. It’s just like they’re in total control of everything." (The Threat, p. 170)
So how do such aliens rationalize what would, to us, seem to be an
oppressive abuse of others’ sensitivities? Since
ellipticals" faction of hyperversals and their hybrid intermediaries
became more voluble in 2005, in my case, IFSP aliens have
communicated less, except when stimulated to do so. They’ve been
pre-empted. Aliens of the "three ellipticals" faction say that
overly emotional tendencies are eliminated to prevent conflicts and
maintain order. Although they try to be subtle about it, their
emphasis is clearly on security. They give out other messages about
effectively managing various populations in order to prevent
violence and enforce the larger ecology.
Of course, competing aliens (and some hyperversals) argue that when
a population has the requisite science, they may decide to
genetically improve themselves and shouldn’t necessarily be
compelled to do so. Implicit within the perspective is the
assumption that one alien group or another will either help, or
provoke an emerging population to get it right.
Already, at this early stage in human-alien relations we can see a
distinct pattern. At some point, technology began to distort some
aliens’ social relations. Rather than pace their societies according
to planetary ecology, conformity and curiosity plus a desire to
compete with other worlds caused some aliens to take the natural
ecology for granted. Technology bred a desire for mastery and
control. Weapons were developed and large-scale rivalries became
troublesome, so various larger regimes attempted to exert control
over other aliens. There have been varying degrees of this, ranging
from more loosely structured, smaller associations to seemingly
absolutist arrogations on a multi-galactic scale. Aliens who
conditioned to think they must intervene elsewhere to maintain order
won’t ask your permission before they do so.
Technology and regime one-ness of mind have stifled the ability of
some aliens to think independently. Like the IFSP’s gray aliens,
they may say that they are only "shells," in a sense, of the larger
whole. Social identity is certainly more advanced than detachment,
but the ability to exercise critical judgment has been impaired in
some cases. When opportunities arise, the dominant aliens of an
alignment may prefer to eliminate too much emotion in other aliens,
rather than too little.
Consequently, there are cascading misjudgments when the regime
turns its attentions elsewhere. Emergent populations are hailed as
bad examples, some planets destroyed during psychotronic
propaganda-driven interventions. Complicating such situations are
larger rivalries and fatal ironies that arise when one rigidly
structured misconception compounds another. The result can be a
mismatch between the delicate, naturally evolved reality of an
emergent biome and the policies of an intervening regime. In some
cases, genetic modifications lead to infirmities: elimination of
vital genes, greatly extended lifetimes that lead to coldly
indifferent geriatric conditions. Alien technology can fix body
wounds but can’t repair the withered sensitivities of regime-minded
Among misguided hyperversal sections, we’ve seen how easy it is for
some to simply ignore the consequences of bad policy. Instead, a
doting or indifferent hyperversal may suffer a kind of hyperplexity:
the desire to know more, travel more, and do more on a grander scale
than other aliens (which is something of an irony, given
hyperversals’ need to down-scale).
During interventions where independent critique is most needed,
there may be nearly none within an aggregate like the IFSP. Instead,
epic crimes are easily rationalized in terms of an idealized (yet
incomplete) social whole. Although the most primitive kinds of
individuality will long have been replaced by community concerns, a
more evolved, next-step kind of critique may have been stifled in
Outwardly, IFSP aliens seem to be immune to doubts and regrets about
damage done to humans. According to abductees, grays and other
dependents of the IFSP almost never raise objections or protest the
IFSP’s manipulated crimes and abductions. Has their ability to do so
been genetically marginalized, or is the IFSP so controlling and
hierarchical that they fear to cause trouble, in the first place? In
my own case, I’ve noted resonant gray concern about what happened to
their original planet and could also happen here, but it’s cautious
and minimal, possibly for fear of the Verdants.
Finally, did Verdants eliminate certain genes for emotion in
themselves, or was that done long ago by yet another population?
Hopefully, our native alien neighbors have done a better job of
preserving critical judgment and sensitivities than have IFSP
aliens. One hyperversal alien noted a kind of "unformed quality" in
IFSP aliens, a lack of rigorous critique, which can be a handicap.
Meanwhile, IFSP (Intergalactic Federation of Sovereign
Planets) aliens say that we can neither appreciate their
motives nor the kind of life they lead until we’ve actually lived
within and have become part of their kind of group identity. In
Verdant minds, reportedly, we’re all scheduled to be discontinued,
replaced by Verdant and gray-engineered prototypes via their
But how do they think to accomplish that? So far, IFSP aliens
haven’t divulged specifics. They may fear the response that might
elicit from the human majority.
The IFSP’s potentially biased kind of genetic engineering has led to
a new category of phenomena that we must now study, new
psychodynamics and susceptibilities that may pose obstacles to an
equal, legally-protected order in this part of the universe.
Deliberate dulling of alien sensitivities can be dangerous. It leads
to situations in which mass crimes can be committed with little or
Imagine how it is to be an IFSP alien:
When faced with the loss of
career, medical and highly technological life-support options for
having objected too firmly to the abuse of another people, how many
lesser aliens will feel it’s safe to take on the entire Verdant
Such abuses can only erode democratic rights and the equal
consideration for all peoples. Situations will arise in which
intelligent, technological target populations are regarded as little
more than animals. That, in itself, poses a new category of bias and
discrimination: a specious disdain that’s analogous to racism.
At present, such issues are germane to informed discussion of human
contacts with other peoples. Basic rights and protections must be
preserved before they are drastically compromised, unaware to the
human majority. While we’re still able to do so, we need to raise
such issues explicitly.
Some aliens regard such concerns as a breath of fresh air in what
can, at times, seem to be a stifling and unfair
exopolitical environment. Ultimately, our finest contributions may
have to do with human creativity, human rights, and
the independent, critical judgment of our best legal reasoning.
