The Verdants


Eliminating 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 question:

Are some genetic and other alterations designed to make a given people easier to manage and control?

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 abductors. (Jacobs, 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 they "own" 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 control."

(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 overall improvement.

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 her abductors.

"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 Reshma asked whether the hybrid had at least some feelings, the hybrid replied,

"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 the "three 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 are 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 sociopaths.

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 the process.

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 breeding program.

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 no resistance.

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 bureaucracy?

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.
