Alternative 3 and 'Global Consciousness': Identifying a New Strategic Factor for Responding to Extraterrestrials
Alternative 3 began as a science documentary broadcast on British television by Anglia Television in June, 1977 and beamed to several other countries in Europe and to Australia, New Zealand but not to the US. Alternative 3 was the last in series of documentaries called the Science Report. Alternative 3 began with the investigators researching an alleged 'brain drain' in Britain (talented individuals emigrating to other countries), and then discovering that these people had disappeared. Further research focused on their allegedly being taken off to work in undisclosed locations. More investigation revealed that the Earth's environment is undergoing great change due to greenhouse gases and that a top secret effort is underway to move small numbers of the human population to safe locations.
According to an alleged British scientist, the authorities have long known that the global environment was deteriorating so seriously, that three radical solutions or 'alternatives' were contemplated. Alternative 1 was to put a stop to environmental degradation and use extreme measures such as atomic blasts in the Earth's atmosphere to allow greenhouse gases to escape. Alternative 2 was to move enough of the population to safe underground sites to ensure continuity of government and national survival. Alternative 3 was the most radical, establish bases on the Moon and Mars and move as much of the population there to ensure the survival of humanity. The documentary interviewed an alleged US astronaut 'Bob Grodin' who claimed that when he went to the moon that others were already there in words that echoed Neil Armstrong's alleged comments when on the moon: "But we have found some visitors... They've been here for quite a while judging by the installations.... I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there. They're lined up in ranks on the far side of the crater's edge..." ( http://www.unexplainable.net/astronautreports/neilandbuzz.html ). The documentary finished with a film clip that was allegedly smuggled out by a murdered British scientist that showed a US landing on Mars and an astronaut announcing: "Boy, when they take the wraps off this, it'll be the biggest day in history. 22 May 1962, we're on Mars and we have life."
Alternative 3 caused an immediate uproar since the Science Report was a well respected series of science documentaries that had a track record for informative stories that were credible and very well researched. In 1977 there was no such thing as the internet and cable TV so shows like the Science Report were very influential and reached a wide audience. Anglia television began telling worried telephone callers that the show was fiction and that the investigators and people interviewed in the show were actors. You can read a good summary of how Alternative 3 was hoaxed here: http://www.davidicke.net/emagazine/vol23/articles/alt3.html .

After all the furor caused by what was now declared to be a fictitious television documentary, one of the individuals involved in the production of Alternative 3 wrote a book a year later that instantly became a popular conspiracy theory. The book, Alternative 3, developed further themes mentioned in the documentary with material that arguably could not be included in the show. Watkins claimed that civilians were being abducted and taken to colonies on Mars and the Moon (an online version available here: http://ufos.about.com/library/weekly/aa051099.htm ). The author Leslie Watkins, emigrated to Australia, and then explained that the book was 'fiction based on fact,' and claimed that the original show was also a fictionalized version of fact. For many, the Alternative 3 documentary was just an elaborate hoax, involving actors, and that Watkin's was just an example of the people involved trying to cash in on the documentary's popularity.
Even though Alternative 3 involved actors staging a documentary that was a hoax featuring fictitious British scientists and a fictitious American Astronaut, there are a number of things that makes one suspicious about this whole saga. First, the Science Report was a well respected British documentary produced by Anglia Television. Why would Anglia TV and the produces of the Science Report risk their reputations to produce a hoax that would spark protests by its loyal viewers? And second, why would the Science Report use actors to impersonate a respected British scientist and a US astronaut whose identities could easily be found to be fictitious? Finally, what does all this have to do with us in 2004 and the undisclosed extraterrestrial presence?
Let me now offer my reflections on what really happened with Alternative 3, and its exopolitical significance. I believe that Alternative 3 was intended to disclose to the general public a truth that was too disturbing to be announced through conventional political channels. The 'truth' was undisclosed scientific data that indicated that the Earth's environment was rapidly collapsing as a result of various causes and that events had reached a point where devastating Earth changes were around the corner. The conclusion reached by government authorities was that there were going to be devastating environmental changes that would threaten the survival of humanity on the surface of the Earth. Hence intensive efforts were underway to prepare for such a contingency through the three alternatives discussed in the Alternative 3 documentary and book.
The alleged bases on the Moon and Mars were a possible place for relocating significant numbers of civilians to escape whatever environmental catastrophe were projected. As to how the US and other countries had been able to establish bases on the Moon and Mars without public knowledge, the answer lies in the technological assistance provided by extraterrestrials that were providing such technology in exchange for various earth resources. In Phillip Corso's book, The Day After Roswell, he described an ambitious blueprint for a base on the moon that was made possible by extraterrestrial technologies recovered from the Roswell crash. While the book presents the Moon base as an unrealized project, the implication that Corso is making with the inclusion of these chapters is that the Moon base was indeed constructed but that he couldn't officially disclose this in the book.
The recent book series, Millennial Hospitality (2002), released by a former USAF weather observer, Charles Hall, demonstrates the extent that the government exchanged technology with a group of extraterrestrials called the 'tall whites' (see http://members.lycos.co.uk/Charles_Hall/ ) . The tall whites provided the technological information for constructing nuclear powered scout craft that could travel in nearby regions of the solar system, and even provided tours of the Moon and possibly Mars to USAF generals on their more advanced anti-gravity propelled scout craft. Thus the Hall book series lends support to alleged whistleblowers such as Michael Relfe who claim to have traveled to Mars and served in a secret human colony there (see http://www.themarsrecords.com/ ). Hall also supports the testimony of a former member of US Naval Intelligence, William Cooper, who claimed to have seen documents describing secret bases on the Moon and Mars (http://www.alienresistance.org/coopermj12.htm ). It can be assumed that extraterrestrials such as the tall whites provided intelligence on the impending environmental catastrophe, and probably struck deals with the shadow government where both would benefit in the event of such a global calamity.
As to what were the undisclosed causes driving a dramatic environmental collapse, one can take their pick: runaway greenhouse and ozone depleting gasses, an impending pole shift, the approach of a large comet/planet such as Planet X, the sun experiencing immense mega solar activity, an impending nuclear war, and/or the use of exotic technologies provided by visiting extraterrestrial races. There is much evidence to support each of these factors as possible causes of devastating environmental change on Earth that were thought to be inevitable so I leave it to the reader to research each of these and their plausibility.
My conclusion is that the shadow government that controlled extraterrestrial affairs were convinced that a planet wide environmental collapse was imminent, so for the sake of preparing those who might stand a chance of surviving on Earth's surface, they covertly arranged for the production and release of Alternative 3. The idea was to put enough factual material in the documentary so that those that were alert enough, could take whatever measures they could to survive what was about to happen. At the same time, the documentary had to be obviously a hoax using actors playing fictitious personalities so that it could be easily dismissed by those who might panic if indeed there was truth to it. That way the shadow government could get the word out while maintaining plausible deniability over the truth of what was claimed in the show. I think this best explains why the Science Report went to all the effort to produce Alternative 3, and ride out the predictable public backlash once viewers were told the show was a hoax. To me, this explanation is the most plausible as to why Anglia TV and the Science Report went ahead with the production and airing of Alternative 3.
So if the Science Show was televising Alternative 3 to warn those who were alert enough as to what was really happening, and if the that shadow government was secretly behind the production of Alternative 3 to both test public reaction and prepare those who might stand a chance of surviving a predicted environmental catastrophe, then why haven't the Earth changes happened? After all it's been 27 years since Alternative 3 aired so if the shadow government were really behind it to promote some public awareness of what they believed the evidence conclusively suggested lay just ahead, how could their bleak assessments have been so wrong?
I think this is where we reach some interesting conclusions since the shadow government would have had impressive scientific resources and technological data needed to reach their assessment of what lay ahead for the planet. When you combine the bleak assessment that the shadow government reached, with predictions of impending environmental collapse by extraterrestrials who have communicated with contactees/abductees, and predictions of global calamity by a host of psychics throughout the 1980s and 1990s, then it becomes clear that the shadow government, visiting extraterrestrial races and psychics missed something vital in their predictions of an impending environmental catastrophe. What factor or variable did the shadow government, extraterrestrials and psychics miss in making their bleak assessments about the future of humanity on the surface of Earth?
The answer I believe is that all failed to factor in the relevance of 'global consciousness' into their predictive models and analyses of the forces behind an environmental collapse. The best source for understanding the concept of 'global consciousness' and how it affects the evolution of life on Earth is Tielhard de Chardin and his concept of the 'noosphere' (see http://www.december.com/cmc/mag/1997/mar/cunning.html ). The noosphere was an evolving composite of humanity's thoughts, feelings and social relationships that evolved steadily upward towards a fuller manifestation of human potential. De Chardin's thoughts on a 'global consciousness' was independently supported by theorists such as Carl Jung who discovered archetypes of the 'collective unconscious' of humanity. Rather than solely an abstraction dreamed up by progressive thinkers, the concept of a global consciousness is physically represented through the communications infrastructure of the internet. The internet probably more than anything else physically symbolizes the noosphere or 'global consciousness' that Chardin was arguing to be a critical factor in the evolution of humanity.
Now this takes us to the question of how 'global consciousness' may be the missing variable that accounts for the failed shadow government predictive models, information provided by extraterrestrials and psychic visions that all suggested that devastating environmental events were inevitable, and thus made Alternative 3 necessary. It can be asserted that global consciousness somehow sufficiently impacted on the global environment to diminish, retard or even negate the environmental catastrophe predicted by researchers reporting to the shadow government, visiting extraterrestrial races, and psychics. It has been shown by a research project at Princeton University that major global events impact on the 'collective consciousness' or noosphere (see: http://noosphere.princeton.edu/ ). Key events such as the deaths of Princes Dianna and Mother Theresa, the 911 attack, major earthquakes and other significant international events have a measurable impact on global consciousness. So if global events register or impact on global consciousness, can it work the other way? In other words, can global consciousness impact on global events in a way that significantly alters these?
The idea that consciousness can alter physical reality is found in various mystical traditions such as the Hermetic principles that were practiced by the ancient Greeks (see http://www.divineparadox.com/AgelessWisdom/Kybalion/kybalion15.htm ). This idea was popularized for students of quantum physics by Fritjoff Capra who wrote the Tao of Physics in 1974 (for his intro see: http://www.shotokai.com/ingles/filosofia/introtao.html ) . Essentially, quantum physicists were discovering that the observer of sub-atomic behaviors was a factor in understanding the behavior of these particles. This realization opened the door to the idea that consciousness impacts on the observed behavior of sub-atomic particles. So going from sub-atomic particles to global events, it can be asked whether changes in global consciousness impact on global events?
Answering this question first requires understanding whether there have been recently dramatic changes in global consciousness, and what might be the factors driving such change. The idea that global consciousness can change and evolve is not new since this is something that Tielhard de Chardin proposed, and eventually got him into trouble with Catholic Church authorities. So if there has recently been some dramatic shifts in global consciousness, what might have been driving this?
Many have argued that the Earth and our solar system has entered a new region of the galaxy which makes possible a more evolved form of global consciousness. This has been referred to as the 'photon belt' and it has been argued to be a region that impacts on the frequencies of the Earth, the Sun and other planets in our solar system (http://www.2012.com.au/Photon_belt.html ). Other theorists have argued that the plane of our solar system has come into alignment with the galactic core of the Milky Way thereby impacting on global consciousness (http://www.portalmarket.com/cosmogen.html ). All these may be factors driving changes in global consciousness, but the most instrumental factor has been the communications made possible by the develop of the internet.
The best evidence of a dramatic shift in global consciousness is the development of the internet and the global communications and cyber-communities this has spawned. The growth of yahoo discussion groups, for example, has enabled individuals from around the planet to network with one other, establish connections, share networks and establish new identities that break down the more provincial/national identities that were dominant in the pre-internet days. More significantly, the internet has made it possible for communities to share information and take action to deal with environmental problems as they arose. The internet has been a dramatic technological development that has made possible rapid changes in global consciousness. This change is unrivalled in human history and perhaps only the establishment of the printing press in the 15th century rivals it.
So if it is accepted that global consciousness has shifted in ways that reflect a more integrated global community made possible by the communications infrastructure of the internet and cyber-communications such as Yahoo discussion groups, can this impact on our global reality? Put otherwise, does a more unified global humanity impact on the physical world around us? This is a difficult question to answer, but it nevertheless points to the idea that changes in global consciousness are an important factor or variable to take into account in analyzing the impact of possible environmental changes on Earth. The fact that numerous groups around the planet began to take a keen interest in the environment and assisting with problems as they were brought to the public's attention, demonstrates the power of global consciousness when focused on a particular set of problems such as the global environmental changes. In my view, the failure of shadow government to factor in 'global consciousness' into their assessments of a potential environmental collapse, accounts for why they were dramatically mistaken in planning for inevitable destructive environmental changes.
So if global consciousness is the missing variable in determining the likelihood of destructive environmental damage, how can this be effectively factored in future global security threats contemplated by the shadow government? Arguably, the most serious global threat aside from an environmental catastrophe, is that posed by extraterrestrial races that have infiltrated our planet and pose a long term threat to human sovereignty due to their technological superiority and the advantages this gives them in forging trade pacts with the shadow government. Indeed, the Charles Hall books point to tall white extraterrestrials, and likely other extraterrestrial races, having imposed agreements on US shadow government authorities that involve the extraction of significant earth resources to off world locations in exchange for technological know how and permission for extraterrestrials to be housed in bases on Earth (http://www.exopolitics.org/Exo-Comment-25.htm ). There's strong evidence in Hall's revelations that the tall whites are conducting an interstellar trade using large quantities of Earth resources possibly including abducted civilians. Significantly, Hall describes the powerlessness felt by the military in dealing with the technological superiority of the tall whites. These themes are vividly demonstrated in the recent movie, The Forgotten, which dramatizes the phenomenon of civilians being abducted by extraterrestrials who disappear with records and memories of them being deleted, while national security agencies are powerless to stop the extraterrestrials responsible for this (http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/theforgotten/ ).
If global consciousness was the missing factor in preventing inevitable environmental challenges once these problems were brought to the attention of the general public, then it may similarly be a factor that can impact on the relations with unfriendly extraterrestrial races extracting earth resources and possibly humans for off world locations. While national security agencies may feel powerless to stop such practices due to their perceived technological inferiority, global consciousness may once again play a constructive role in warding off a threat that is still not disclosed to the general public. Using global consciousness against the threat posed by resource hungry extraterrestrial visitors may be the best defense national security agencies have in warding off a threat that still remains undisclosed to the general public.
Global consciousness in the form of an interconnected, empowered and informed global public is yet to be appreciated as a strategic asset by national security agencies responsible for dealing with threats to the long term sovereignty, freedom and well being of global humanity. Once global consciousness is made aware of the threat posed by resource hungry extraterrestrials visiting the Earth, then solutions will be found to ensure that dignity and integrity of humanity in the face of technologically advanced extraterrestrial races. Global consciousness is an important strategic variable in dealing with global challenges posed by the extraterrestrial presence, and requires a profound reversal of the non-disclosure policy in place for more than five decades by the US and other major national governments.
