“Extraterrestrial Species with Terran Contact” By Kim MacDermotRoe.

Extraterrestrial Species with Terran Contact

Kim MacDermotRoe


In the following paper, I compare, contrast and analyze information about extraterrestrials some researchers say have had contact with Earth. In the conclusion, I offer suggestions as to how Terrans should respond to any challenges resulting from ET contacts.

The information about ETs is derived primarily from the following sources:

Elena Danaan, author of A Gift from the Stars. Danaan states that she received some of her ET information in an unstamped document left in her mailbox that purported to be a record of alien species prepared by the Russian secret service. She says she has no idea who left it. In addition, she says that much more information was provided to her by her Pleiadian contacts Thor Han Eredyon and a higher Pleiadian official, Coron.

Malgosia Duszak, known as Gosia, created Cosmic Agency which is affiliated with Pleiadian Knowledge. She says that she receives written communications through the internet from Taygetans of the Pleiades who are visiting our solar system. They include Swaruu of the planet Erra.

Alex Collier who says that he was contacted several times by Andromedans. In his interview on Galactic History he discusses information they gave him on ET colonization of Earth and other subjects. 

Debbie Solaris, who is based in Colorado, describes herself as a galactic historian, intuitive, mythologist, and Arcturian starseed. It appears that Solaris’ information about ET species is channeled.

Eva Marquez, author of A Starseed Guide Andromeda Pleiades Sirius. As with Solaris, it appears that her information is channeled.

The information that these sources provide cannot be independently verified. Further, the information often differs from one source to another. Nonetheless, the names of certain species occur over and over and many important facts appear in multiple sources.

Given that there are about 200 billion stars in the Milky Way Galaxy, it would not be surprising if there are many advanced spacefaring species out there. And it would not be surprising if some of them have an interest in Earth particularly as Terrans enter the Space Age. Indeed, in a purported transcript of a March 6, 1981 CIA briefing, staff told President Ronald Reagan that six ET species had been identified and that one was hostile.

It is in the interest of Terrans to be as prepared for any eventuality that might arise should we encounter technologically advanced ETs. Thus, it is worthwhile to consider what various sources claim to know about ETs even if the information cannot be verified at this time.

Note re Galaxy vs. Constellation vs Nebula

All of the visible stars in the night sky are part of our own galaxy, the Milky Way, and are relatively close to Earth. Ancients arbitrarily divided them into groups named after people and animals in order to organize the night sky. Although the stars of a constellation are in the same sector of the sky when seen from Earth, they may be at greatly different distances from Earth and from each other. Furthermore, constellations are not held together by gravity like a solar system or a galaxy.

In contrast to constellations, galaxies are coherent groups of hundreds of billions of stars held together by gravity. Galaxies which are often in the form of a spiral are so far away that you can’t see the individual stars from Earth. 

The name Andromeda is used for the galaxy closest to the Milky Way and has even more stars. The name Andromeda is, also, used for the much closer group of stars known as the Andromeda Constellation in the Milky Wary. They have the same name because the Andromeda Galaxy, only visible as a small blur in the night sky, is in the same direction as the Andromeda Constellation.

A nebula is composed of gas and many young stars in formation. It can easily be confused with a star or even a distant galaxy. For example, the Orion Nebulae in Orion’s belt looks very much like the other stars in the constellation. Interestingly, the Orion Nebula has been described as an interdimensional portal which may explain why the Draco are said to have expanded into the Orion region.

In the late 18th century French astronomer Charles Messier compiled a catalogue of fixed diffused objects in the night sky which was expanded over the years to 104 objects including star clusters, galaxies and nebulae.  It is still widely used to specify astronomical locations. So, for example the Pleiades, an open star cluster, is designated M45 in the Messier catalogue. 


Taygeta Star System, Pleiades Star Cluster, Constellation Taurus, Milky Way Galaxy

Origin: It is widely stated that the Taygetan system in the Pleiades was settled by Lyrans who fled the Man Star System of the Lyra Constellation as the result of the Ciakahrr Empire invasion. The brightest star in the Lyran Constellation, Vega, is easily visible from Earth. 

Swaruu names the Taygetans Man Star System homeworlds as Avalon and Lyra while Debbie Solaris names Avalon, but not Lyra. Danaan gives different names for the Man System planets. Among them are the planets Oman Khera and Maya, the homeworlds of the Taal and Ahel races, respectively.

Star System: Taygeta has 10 planets. Of particular interest are Temer and Erra. Temer is tropical while Erra is more temperate.

Population: Lyrans of the Taal ethnic branch settled on the planet Temer while those that settled on Erra were predominantly of the Lyran Ahel branch. According to Danaan, when colonizing it is common for Lyrans to cross breed with indigenous people. Solaris says that the Arcturians helped the Lyran refugees advance.

History: On November 2, 2020, Cosmic Agency published a detailed history of Taygeta which Gosia Duszak said she received in writing through the internet from Swaruu, a Taygetan from the planet Erra. This communication is one of many from Taygetans that Cosmic Agency has and Pleiadian Knowledge published over the last few years. 

According to Swaruu, the Taygetans are currently very involved with Terra. Although members of the Galactic Federation of Planets, she says that the Taygetans object to the Federation’s unwillingness to help the Terrans fight the corrupt cabal that rules Earth. Swaruu says that the nominal leaders of Earth maintain power through their alliance with the reptilian Orion Empire.

The Taygetans claim that until recently they maintained a significant fleet in close proximity to Earth. However, their presence was reduced by order of the Federation. A theme of Taygetan communications is that the Federation will not rescue Terrans from the cabal that controls Earth. Terrans must do that themselves. 

Since this history is from a Taygetan, it is not surprising that the story of ET contact with Earth focuses largely on Taygeta’s role. However, Swaruu, also, mentions some of the other ET species that were active on Earth in ancient times.

Swaruu says that the Taygetan ancestors originated on the planets Avalon and Lyra in the Vega area. Although she does not name the star system, it is possible that it was Mana named by Danaan as the Taygetan origin since Mana was said to be close to Vega. Both stars appear to be in what Terrans call the Lyran Constellation.

About one million Earth years Before Present, their Lyran ancestors, humanoids, fled their home worlds to escape a reptilian invasion. Breaking up into groups, they sought refuge in many different planets in this sector of the Milky Way Galaxy. Swaruu says that the Galactic Federation of Planets was formed by humanoids after the invasion as a means of defending against the reptilians.

In another interview, Swaruu says that the Lyran settlers in the Pleiades organized their new Pleiadian worlds into the Council of Alcyone. Alcyone, also known as Eta Tauri, is the brightest star in the Pleiades and is actually a triple star system. The Council of Alcyone seems to have been superseded in importance by the Federation,

According to Aneeka of Temer, another Taygetan source, this diaspora, known as the Great Expansion of Lyra, led to many new humanoid settlements at locations including Earth in our solar system and Temer and Erra in the Taygetan Star System in the Pleiades. Other Lyran diaspora descendants in the Pleiades include the Engans of the Star System Electra, the Solatians of the Pleione, the Elohi of Asterope, the Hyadeans of Merope, the Mullosc of Atlas and the Mayans of Maya. See, the communication of Aneeka of Temer, regarding Atlantis and Lemuria.

It appears that Swaruu is saying that a Lyran presence on Earth goes back perhaps one million years originally consisting of humanoid Lyrans that fled the Ciakahrr invasion. Yet, Swaruu later says in her interview that the first human Lyrans came to Earth 40,000 years ago with a second group, Taygetans, coming later. 

Swaruu describes the early Lyrans on Terra as having a holographic society. By holographic, she means that they communicated in part through mental telepathy.

The second group, the Taygetans established a colony on Oceania, later Lemuria, and maintained a good relation with the holographic Lyrans. Swaruu notes that Lemuria was very diverse with many different species.

In the Atlantis and Lemuria communication, Aneeka of Temer, does not date the arrival of the Lyrans on Earth. However, it appears to have been after the invasion of the Lyra home world by the Ciakahrr as she says the Lyrans arriving on Earth were pursued by reptilians. This would imply a date on the order of one million years ago.

Swaruu’s and Aneeka’s chronologies are confusing. Furthermore, it is possible that Swaruu may sometimes refer to Taygetans when she means Lyrans or vice versa since the two have the same origin. 

In contrast to Swaruu, Solaris is quite specific in her chronology for Lemuria and Atlantis. 

Solaris says that Lemuria was developed by Arcturians and Andromedans using other ET races including the Sirians, the Lyrans and the Pleiadians about 74,000 ago and that it was destroyed by Atlantis about 33,000 years ago. Atlantis was founded about 60,000 years ago by Pleiadians and other ET races settled there too. She says that Atlantis was destroyed in a civil war after it was infiltrated by members of the Orion Empire.

Other sources say that Atlantis was founded by reptilians and included other species. Swaruu, for example, said that Lyrans enslaved by reptilians when Atlantis’ defeated Lemuria were brought to Atlantis but later liberated.

Plato’s account of the destruction of Atlantis is that the it occurred about 11,500 Before Present.

One possible scenario is that about one million years ago Lyrans fleeing the reptilian invasion of their home world sought refuge on Earth. They were pursued there by reptilians, but nonetheless survived to establish a Terran society. Much latter a second group of Lyrans, the Taygetans, came to Earth, perhaps to help the earlier Lyran settlers who were under attack from a new wave of reptilians. 

Aneeka of Temer implies that the name of the planet Earth comes from Erra, of the Taygeta Star System.  She also says that the Navajo and Inuit languages are lineal descendants of Taygetan. Atlantis and Lemuria

With regard to possible ET-Terran linguistic connections, it is interesting to note that the Terran word for man can be traced to the ancient Sanskrit word “manu”. In Sanskrit, it means, not just a male person, but signifies much more broadly human, humankind and the progenitor of mankind. Could the origin of the word “manu” be a reference to the Man Star System of the Lyrans?

Swaruu says that Lemuria barely survived an initial attack by reptilians. Many Lyrans were taken prisoner, enslaved, indoctrinated and used to populate the reptilian’s new colony, Atlantis. According to Swaruu, the reptilians attempted to genetically modify the Lyran captives but failed due to Lyrans “strong connection to the Source”. She denies that Earth humans are the product of genetic manipulation as others claim. 

Swaruu says that having failed to genetically alter the Lyrans, the reptilians manipulated the DNA of an indigenous reptilian species to create a new reptilian slave race. She says that the Sumerian depictions of bearded men are, in fact, human like adaptations of reptiles.

Later on, Swaruu says that “Earth has been visited countless times by countless races” who have left their influence there. Among them were the Altanteans from the Celaeno Star System in the Pleiades and Andromedans. She says that the Andromedans had bases on the Indian subcontinent and that many ancient figures like Shiva were ETs.

The Taygetan colony in Lemuria determined to free the Lyrans captured and enslaved on Atlantis. They sent Taygetan women, represented by the Snake in the Bible, to infiltrate Atlantis and give knowledge to “Eve”, who represents the captive Lyran women. As the Taygetan women planned, Eve gave the knowledge to Adam, i.e., the Lyran men, that led to the Adamic race freeing itself by leaving the Atlantean stronghold, the Biblical Garden of Eden.

It appears that the reptilian conquest of much of Earth provoked the Federation to send a force to our solar system to oppose the reptilians. It was in the course of this conflict that Mars atmosphere was devastated and that the planet Tiamat, now the asteroid belt, was destroyed.

After the war, little was left of the reptilian culture on Earth. According to Swaruu, modern humans are descendants of the Lyran and Taygetan survivors of the war. Their numbers had been reduced by an Earth cataclysm, perhaps both a pole shift and flood, that caused massive devastation and displacement of people. Perhaps Swaruu is referring to the sudden climate change and great flood that occurred about 11,500 years ago.

Having sustained heavy losses in its war with the reptilians, Swaruu says the Federation departed the solar system, leaving an electromagnetic barrier around Earth to protect it from outsiders. She explains that this barrier is the origin of the 3rd Density matrix in which Terrans now exist. Note that “Density” has used here connotes a level of consciousness while “Dimension” refers to another plane of reality.

Swaruu claims that the Lyran population at some point was reduced to include only eight women. She says that these few Lyran women are the ancestors of modern humans. This is consistent with the 1987 discovery through mitochondrial DNA research that people around the world of all races had a common female ancestor about 200,000 years ago.

Thus, according to Swaruu modern humans are Lyran descendants (presumably including Taygetans) with a complete Lyran DNA. We do not use all of our DNA because our consciousness is deactivated through self-limitation and mind control. She says that once we activate our consciousness through spiritual awakening, we will have access to full DNA potential inherited from the Lyrans.

Swaruu’s belief that humans are Lyran descendants is consistent with Elena Danaan’s assertion in A Gift from the Stars that it is common for Lyrans colonists to adapt to the local environment by cross breeding with natives. Since it is said that the souls of various ET races including Andromedans and Sirians incarnate on Earth as new souls, viz. souls with non-Terran prior incarnations, these souls may be incarnating in the bodies of Earth people with Lyran ancestry. 

It should be noted that in another communication with Pleiadian Knowledge, Swaruu clarified that while all Terran homo sapiens descend from Lyrans, as do those mentioned above, not all humanoids in the galaxy are of Lyran descent. There are other very similar looking humanoid races and still others with varying degrees of human like appearance. Swaruu, also, stated that other Terran hominids, such as Neanderthals, are not of Lyran origin.

The belief that Lyrans are the ancestors of humans is consistent with Alex Collier’s interview on galactic history. Collier states that as Lyran settlers spread they “grew into” the humanoids of these populations: Sirian, Arcturian, Antarian, Pleiadian, Andromedan, Cignus Alphan, Alpha Centauri, Sagittarius A & B, Cassiopeian.

Collier states that Lyrans are constantly exploring other worlds looking to set up colonies. He specifically refers to their settlement of Taygeta and Alcoyne star systems in the Pleiades. He says that for, at least, 79,743 years, Pleiadians have established many large settlements on Earth. He says they seem to frequently come and go.  

As with many other sources, Collier sometimes conflates Lyrans and Pleiadians. From the context, it appears that he may be saying the Lyrans came to Earth to settle in the aftermath of the reptilian invasion of the Man Star System. This would have been long before the Pleiadian settlements he refers to. 

Collier states that the human race on Earth was created by the Paa Tal, an advanced race that came from another realm. Other sources describe them as 6th Density light beings from another, older universe. When our universe was brought into manifestation by an expansion of Mother/Father Consciousness, the Paa Tal were sent here as shepherds of new life.

According to Collier, the Paa Tal ancestry is spiritual. He says that our human genetic ancestry is derived from 17 human ET races. These ETs were the basis for the civilizations of Lemuria and Atlantis. Collier says that Earth’s Aryan race descends from the Pleiadians and Andromedans. He, also, says that ancient Lyrans were the Titans, the ancestors of the Greek gods.

Danaan believes that she is an Earth ET hybrid. She believes that she is related by blood to Annax of the Egaroths, an elder race belonging to the Council of Five, who has visited her. Danaan implies that she will return to her original body on Egaroth when she ends her incarnation on Earth.

Danaan says that the Egaroths come from Meissa. Meissa is a multiple star system located in the position of the imagined head in the Orion Constellation. She says that the Council of Five, which originally had nine members, was formed by the ancient races prior to the Federation to protect planets from reptilian aggression. This Council still seems to be active although the Federation appears to have the most contact with Earth.

Regarding ET incarnations on Earth, Swaruu describes them as “envoys” though Terrans often refer to them as starseeds, Swaruu says that ET races incarnating on Earth do not restrict themselves to one ethnicity as some suggest. According to her, they spread their envoys around the planet. Humans Created by Extraterrestrials? Interview transcript published by Gosia, Cosmic Agency, November 18, 2020. If this correct, then one cannot identify an ET envoy from physical or ethnic appearance.

Swaruu, also, clarifies that the ET incarnation process has an effect on the mentality of the Terran in whom the ET soul incarnates but not necessarily on the person’s physical structure. The human DNA is unchanged and the physical appearance changes, if any, would not be dramatic. The mental change may be evidenced by the fact that many suspected starseeds say that the feel they don’t belong here and often suffer from depression.

So, the bottom line, according to Swaruu is that human ETs incarnate on Earth are the same genetically as Terrans. The difference is that the ETs possess a higher level of consciousness which enables them to utilize more of the available human DNA. 


Sirius Star System, Cana Major Constellation, Milky Way Galaxy

Origin: Vega star system, Constellation Lyra. It is possible that the Sirians descend from Lyrans that went to Vega as part of the diaspora of humans from the Man Star System in the Lyra Constellation group after its invasion by the reptilians. 

As discussed earlier, the Man Star System is considered the original home of many humanoid races in this sector of the Milky Way. The dispersed human races of the Man System, though of Lyran origin, are known by many different names as they settled and adapted to other areas of the galaxy.

Star System: Sirius, a binary star system, is only 8.6 light years from Earth. Danaan says that the stars are Sirius A/Ashera which is bright blue and Sirius B/Thula, a white dwarf, and that they are inhabited by the Katayy and Asheru-Taal, respectively. Sirius is the brightest star in the Terran night sky.

Some believe that there is a third star, Sirius C, a red dwarf. However, astronomers are unable to detect it. 

Population: Danaan says that the Katayy are a Taal-Lyran colony from Vega established on Kashta, a planet of Sirius A/Ashkera. They are members of the Federation.

Danaan also states that the Ashkeru-Taal are among the many races on the four planets around Sirius B/Thula. They look somewhat different from the Katayy as they cross bred with local greys to help adapt to the environment. 

In her interview on the Sirians, Swaruu, also, states that Sirians embrace many different species including humanoids and positive Reptilians, as well as, aquatic beings. Aquatics are prominent on Sirius B/Thula, a planet with much water.

History: According to Danaan’s source, the Sirian Ashkeru humanoids have been in conflict with the Ciakahrr ever since the latter invaded nearby Orion systems and established the Ciakahrr Orion Empire. Since their principal organization, the Ashtar Collective, was infiltrated by reptilians, the humanoid Sirians created a new organization, the Ashtar Galactic Command. 

Danaan says that the Ashtar Galactic Command works in cooperation with the Galactic Federation and has a base on Jupiter. The reptilian Ashtar Collective works on behalf of the Orion Empire in Terran relations and has agreements with some Terran governments regarding technology.

According to Debbie Solaris, the Sirians established the first ET permanent settlement on Earth approximately one million years ago in Latin America. It was followed much later by waves of colonization, not only from Sirius, but also, from Lyra and later on from Orion and the Pleiades.

Solaris says that the Sirians, together with Lyrans and Pleiadians, created two successive versions of mankind by blending some of their DNA with that of the less advanced humanoid species that existed at the time on Earth. She states that infighting occurred between the Sirians and Lyrans/Pleiadians on Terra in which the Sirians are represented mythologically as the snake and the Lyrans and Pleiadians as the bird or eagle.

Solaris, also, says that many Sirians had numerous lifetimes both on Earth and on Sirius, often during Lemurian and Atlantean times, when alien civilizations openly interacted with our ancestors. Much of the Atlantean Knowledge with regard to auras, subtle bodies, or crystal healing, can be traced back to Sirius.

According to Solaris, the Sirians gave the Egyptians much advanced astronomical and medical information and, also, gave the Mayan race advanced knowledge. They helped the Earth during the time of the cataclysmic period in Atlantis and helped to build the pyramids and temples of Egypt. She believes that they are involved with helping Earth into a new Golden Age.

Swaruu stresses that the Sirians, like the Pleiadians include a multitude of races. You can’t refer to either as if they were just one species. According to Swaruu, many different species of Sirians and Pleiadians have seeded other planets including Earth, Temer and Erra. 

Swaruu implies that in ancient times, Earth and probably the now destroyed planet Tiamat, were seeded by aquatic species like whales and dolphins. She states that these species are more spiritually advanced than humans. It is not clear if she is referring to Terrans or Sirian humans.

Swaruu says that the Sirian human presence on Earth is relatively recent, post-Diluvian Egypt, and that these humans came from Sirius A. According to Swaruu, Sirians worked closely with Mayans and Egyptians. Although Isis had a close relation to the Sirians, she says that Isis was not Sirian herself. Swaruu states that there are many Sirian starseeds on Earth today.

Swaruu confirms that the Sirians relate to the myths of the Dogons of Mali. The Dogons say that they were visited by the Nommo from a planet in the Sirian star system. These visitors gave the Dogons accurate scientific information that was only recently learned by modern astronomers. 

Interestingly, Swaruu states that at the higher levels, consciousness is non-local. In scientist Rupert Sheldrake’s terms, you might say that above a certain density consciousness can move freely in the morphic resonance field. In such a state, species becomes of less significance. It is about a soul experience.

A soul, Swaruu says, does not belong to a particular species or planet. However, it will choose to incarnate at a place and in a species to which its frequency corresponds. It would appear that this choice will, also, correspond with the soul’s evolutionary aims.


Zenatean Star System, Andromedan Constellation, Milky Way Galaxy

Origins: According to Danaan, the Zenae are descendants of Taal Lyrans and like the Taygetans originated in the Man Star System of the Lyran Constellation and fled to Adara, a planet of the Vega Star System to escape the reptilian invasion. They subsequently migrated to the Zenatean binary star system of the Andromeda Constellation. This is in accord with Debbie Solaris. However, Swaruu says that Andromedans are not of Lyran origin. 

Danaan specifically names the Zenatean star system of Andromeda. She says that it is, also, referred to as Titawin. 

Star System: While the name Zenae is not assigned by Earth astronomers to any of the stars of the Andromeda Constellation, the brightest star in the constellation Sirrah (or Alpheratz)happens to be a binary star. It represents Andromeda’s head and is located 97 light years from Earth. By comparison, Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky, is 8.6 light years from Earth and Taygeta is 440 light years from Earth.

History: Per Danaan, the reason that the Taal Lyrans left Adara for the Zenatean star system was overpopulation. Since Danaan describes the Zenae as a new colony, it would appear that some of their kin people remained on Adara. 

The Zenatean star system has four planets and three planetoids, but Danaan does not name the Zenae’s planet. Danaan says that their Taal Lyrans’ bodies changed somewhat including the bluing of their skin as they adapted to their new environment. According to Danaan, the Zenae are deeply spiritual and devoted to learning. She says that their higher casts of sages can reach up to the 12th Density.

It is widely agreed among the various sources that the Zenae are not warlike and seek to advance peace and justice through non-violence. They created the Andromedan Council, also known as the Zenatean Alliance, which Danaan says includes 140 different species. 

In a communication to Gosia, Swaruu, the Taygetan, gives a much different description of the Andromedans

Swaruu states that the Andromedans are not of Lyran origin. She says that they have more in common with the Arcturian – Dieslientiplex, Devonian and Korendian races and that they are related to the Blue Pleiadian race, Blue Pleiadian or Celestes.

According to Swaruu, millions of years ago the Andromedans destroyed their own planet, which she does not name, in fighting among themselves. Since then, the Andromedans have been nomads, living and dying through successive incarnations on their space vessels. The vessels range in size from moon size biospheres with millions of inhabitants to small agile vessels.

Their political structure, “The Andromedan Holographic Political System”, is composed of many levels of councils. According to Swaruu this political system is often used by progressive, advanced races, including Taygeta. I note that this system bears resemblance to Thomas Jefferson’s proposed Ward Democracy in which government consists of successive democratic assemblies from neighborhood to the national level.

Swaruu says the Earth belief systems, based on the concept of karma, (i.e., the Vedic religion of India) comes from the Andromedans and that Sanskrit is a form of Andromedan. She says this is reflected in the Indian legend that Sanskrit comes from the stars. Swaruu, also, states that the Hindu god Shiva was an Andromedan.

She says the Andromedans can live 4,500 years and die, not from illness, but by their own decision. While other ET researchers claim that some Andromedans are androgynous, Swaruu claims that they only have male and female. I tend to question her reliability on that as she reacted in a dogmatic manner when gender or sexual orientation was raised in a previous interview.

Swaruu describes the Andromedans as non-emotional and that they have great curiosity about the emotional races. She characterizes the Taygetans as an emotional race. Presumably, she believes the Terrans are, as well.

She, also, says that the Andromedans are great space ship constructors. The Andromedan ships are constructed on or near the planet “Pitoya” in the Bootes Constellation region. It is under the control of the Dieslientiplex branch of the Arcturians. This would suggest a close connection with the Arcturians. Swaruu states that Andromedan space technology is on par with the Taygetans.

According to Swaruu, the Andromedans have been roaming “this area” for 12,500 years. Presumably she means in or near our Solar system. This date is significant as close to the time of the Great Flood that obliterated Terran civilizations. New civilizations, like Egypt, that emerged from the devastation have traditions that point to ET assistance. 

The Zenae oppose the move to control Earth by the Ciakahrr reptilians, Orion greys, certain Altairans and their Terran allies. The Zenae believe that Earth is at a tipping point after 5700 years of reptilian occupation. They, also, see the conflict over Earth as part of a larger struggle by the reptilians to impose tyranny throughout the galaxy. 

Swaruu says that in 1952, a large Zenae/Andromedan biosphere arrived in Earth orbit to support the Federation’s efforts against the reptilians. In addition to providing logistical support to the Federation, the Zenae are among those races with the most starseeds on Earth today. She says that their “envoys” (starseeds) are on Earth to help at “this switching point in the evolution of the Terran species.”

In an interview by Danaan, Alex Collier stated that Andromedan starseeds told him that they studied Earth history before incarnation on Earth. Collier interview with Danaan at 1:18:10 If starseeds are a real phenomenon, it would seem logical for their originating people to prepare them. On the other hand, it has been said that most starseeds like other people have a veil of forgetfulness with respect to their previous life.

In her book, A StarSeed Guide: Andromeda, Pleiades, Sirius, Eva Marquez. says that Andromedans have been incarnating on Earth since Atlantis. Marquez’s source is not clear but it appears that her information like Solaris’ is channeled.

According to Marquez, some of the newcomers to Earth are “new souls” which Marquez calls Atlantean Earth Seeds. Although their DNA may be Andromedan alone, or Andromedan combined with Pleiadian, Sirian or Lyran, they have no experience or memory of these worlds. As souls first born on Earth, they have a stronger attachment to Earth than starseeds who have had many incarnations of their home world.

Marquez believes that the Andromedans in conjunction with other starseeds co-created new human life and repopulated Earth after the destruction of Atlantis. Marquez says the many Andromedan starseeds are drawn to Atlantean starseeds on an unconscious level. This connection helps the Atlantean starseeds awake to their memory, abilities and gives to them a sense of mission.

Like Danaan, Collier refers specifically to the Zenae of Andromeda. He says that their forebears lived for some time in ships and hollowed out asteroids after fleeing the reptilian invasion of the Man Star System. 

During this time, they were helped by beings from the Cassiopeian system. It appears that the Cassiopeian helped these wandering Lyrans to the Zenatean Star System and Tishtae Star System in the Andromeda Constellation where they terraformed and settled planets. Collier says the interaction with the Cassiopeian took place 2.5 million years ago, but other accounts of the reptilian invasion of the Lyran’s Man Star System suggest a more recent date.


Arcturus Star System, Bootes Constellation, Milky Way Galaxy

Origin:  Most sources agree that the Arcturians are not of Lyran origin. Solaris states that Arcturians represent an evolutionary line distinct from other races in the Milky Way. Edgar Cacey said that they were the most advanced civilization in the galaxy. 

Population: Both Danaan and Swaruu say that there are three Arcturian groups although they give the groups different names. According to Danaan, it is the Ohorans that that are involved with the Federation and Earth. It appears that this is the group Swaruu calls the Dieslientiplex.

History: All sources agree that the Arcturians are spiritually and technologically highly evolved. According to Swaruu they are ascended and choose to incarnate in 5D since they regard living in a physical body as complementary to ascension – part of the whole.

While there is agreement that the Arcturians are significant ETs with respect to Earth, sources differ as to their role. 

Danaan states that the Arcturians defend the Earth from reptilians and greys. Working with the Federation, they have bases on Earth inside mountains in every country, as well as, three bases on the Moon. 

Danaan says that Arcturian crafts shift magnetic points and grids on Earth to help elevate Earth to 5D consciousness. The Arcturians work to raise the consciousness of the multiverse in way consistent with free will. Utilizing an energetic process, she describes as “atuning”, Arcturians reach out to diverse levels of consciousness and stay attuned to Source.

Swaruu says that Arcturians have been active on Earth since 1947. She says that there are many Arcturian starseeds on Earth now and they include many New Age spiritual teachers. Solaris, also, states that Arcturians seed other planets – apparently to assist in their spiritual development.

It does not appear that gender is important or even exists for Arcturians as they reproduce asexually. Swaruu says that they clone themselves and that the newborn retains the memory of the parent. Solaris says they reproduce energetically in a process that balances male and female energy.

Swaruu says that Arcturians are members of the Federation and are co-founders of the Andromedan Council. This suggests a close link with the Andromedans.

According to Solaris, Arcturians work closely with Sirians and have established an “Arcturians/Sirian matrix”. Solaris says some sources claim that they may have bases on the Moon and/or Mars.

In her interview with Gosia, Swaruu confirms that the Arcturians incarnate in other races saying:

“They incarnate in other races, as is to be expected since everyone does so at one time or another.”

This is a highly significant statement as it would indicate that most souls have experienced incarnation in more than one race. Thus, any incarnate entity carries with her, perhaps on an unconscious level, the experience of life on other planets as a member of other races. 

Carrying this observation to the soul level, there may be no such thing as a pure Andromedan soul, a pure Terran soul, etc. The incarnations in different forms on different planets might all contribute to the evolution of the personal soul. It is very Arcturian to think of these diverse incarnations as a crucial part of the ascension of the soul toward Source.

The Ciakahrr Draco Orion Empire

Draco and Orion Constellations, Milky Way Galaxy

Origin: Sources generally say the that the reptilians of the Ciakahrr Orion Empire came from another universe or interdimensionally billions of years ago. The Empire was created when the Ciakahrr Empire expanded into the Orion Systems.

Star Systems: Danaan says that the headquarters of the Ciakahrr Empire is located in the binary star system Thuban (Alpha Draconis) in the Draco Constellation. According to Danaan, the Alpha Draconians and their allies have colonized over 500 planets and have a presence on thousands.

Population: As the Empire includes a multitude of star systems, there are a great number of reptilian races including the prominent warriors, the Ciakahrr and Nagai of Alpha Draconis. The Ciakahrr are considered the master reptilian race and are often referred to as the Dracos or Dracs.

History: According to many sources, the reptilians of the Empire, particularly the Alpha Draconians are extremely aggressive. Though highly advanced technologically, they reputedly engage in brutal tactics including enslaving and even eating humanoids and kidnapping human children to extract chemicals that enhance reptilian health.

Danaan says that the Empire’s reptilians have been visiting Earth for over one million years and have had a continuous presence on Earth for 15,000. She says that they have numerous underground bases on Earth which they operate in conjunction with the United States government under a 1954 agreement negotiated on their behalf by grey allies.

In addition to the Empire reptilians, Danaan says that there are Terra reptilians who came to Earth hundreds of millions of years ago. Apparently, a distinct race, they regard Earth as theirs by virtue of longevity.

In conquering planets, the Ciakahrr make extensive use of less developed allied races, enslaved races and biologically created drones. The Ciakahrr typical first move is to have a group, typically a species of greys, approach the leaders of a target planet to ask for help in saving their dying species. In the case of Earth, American leaders, it is said, fell for this in 1954 entering an agreement giving the reptilians and greys permission to kidnap humans for genetic study and to establish military bases on Earth in exchange for technological assistance that mostly did not materialize. 

According to Danaan, the Federation warned the Earth leaders not to sign the proposed agreement with the reptilians. However, the Federation was not willing to make a comparable offer to Earth of technology, particularly that which could be used for weapons. Once the U.S.- Reptilian/Grey agreement was signed, the Federation felt bound to recognize the reptilian interest on Earth.

Danaan describes the hierarchy of the invaders as follows. At the top are the reptilians the Ciakahrr and Nagai warriors who command the Earth based reptilians who in turn command the Tall Greys (Maytrei) and the Insectoids (Mantis) who command the less developed Do Hu from Zeta Reticuli. At the bottom are an enslaved faction of the Solipsi Rai and their cloned and biosynthetic technicians.

Danaan states that many powerful industrial and military elites of Earth have been effectively taken over by Ciakahrr souls to advance their drive for control. Other Earth leaders are duped into believing that the Ciakahrr intend to share real power with them. 

She claims that for decades the Ciakahrr agents have been committing many heinous crimes against the Terran population including abduction and torture. Danaan, also, says that the Ciakahrr, Tall Greys and their subordinates engage in human cloning, genetic experiments and mind control in a vast web of underground bases and cities linked by antigravity trains. Terran women, she says, have been used for genetic breeding while Terran men are sent as slaves to work on Ciakahrr mining colonies

Danaan, also, says the infamous “Men in Black” are cybernetic life forms controlled by the Ciakahrr. They work with the U.S. government to ensure that the Empire’s presence on Earth is kept secret.

According to Danaan, the Federation finally decided to intervene about 2010 and launched a large-scale program, “The Storm” to liberate Terrans. She claims that the Federation’s intervention motivated some leaders to change sides and oppose the Ciakahrr. Danaan says that Federation and allied Terrans recently defeated the Ciakahrr forces in a subterranean war and that the Federation has erected a force field around Earth to prevent further Ciakahrr incursions.

Solaris’ account of the early history of the Draco reptilians is consistent with Danaan’s. According to Solaris, they came from another universe having been expelled because of the massive destruction they caused there. The Ciakahrr, which she renders Ciakar, represent the original lineage of the now diverse Draco reptilians.

Solaris describes the Draco as both master warriors and geneticists. Rejecting non-interference, they conquer and dominate other species. Technologically advanced, the Dracos have had interstellar space travel capability for 4 billion years. She says they have a particular interest in controlling space/time portals. This is particularly interesting as other sources say that the Ciakahrr attacked the Lyran Man Star system because of its proximity to a portal.

Solaris says the Draco exist in the 4th Density/Astral Plane and are generally not visible to Terrans who exist in the 3rd Density. However, she claims to have seen them through activation of her Third Eye using etheric vision.

Like Danaan, Solaris states the genetic engineering is an important tool of Draco conquest. She says the lower echelon reptilians were the result of genetic experiments conducted by them and their allies on Earth, as well as, in Sirius and Orion. She says that Earth’s dragons were the product of a Draco experiment.

Solaris dates the Draco invasion of the Lyrans at 572 million years ago much earlier than other sources. Some suggest that the Dracos came to the Lyra region to control a space portal, others says that the Dracos were motivated by a desire for food. The Lyrans were very successful at agriculture while, according to Solaris, the Dracos’ planets are barren. 

In conquering the Lyrans who had no defense system, Solaris says that the Draco’s killed 50 million people and destroyed several planets including Avalon, Bila, Teka, Merck and Avyon. She says that this relatively easy conquest caused the Dracos to see humans as a source of food and slave labor. Enslaved Terrans are used as workers in Draco operations on the moons of Earth and Mars and for genetic and cloning experimentation.

The conquest of the Lyrans was later followed by the reptilian conquest of parts of the Constellation Orion which is now a Draco stronghold. Solaris says the Dracos arrived on Earth 300,000 years ago. 

The date of the reptilian arrival in Earth is, also, discussed in the Lyra/Pleiades section, infra, with reference to the communication of Aneeka of Temer  Atlantis and Lemuria. Based upon her information, I theorize that the first reptilians, the Useugal, came to Earth shortly after the diaspora of Lyrans, perhaps one million years ago. She indicates that much latter, only 20,000 years ago, a second wave of reptilians arrived including the Ciakahrr.

From what Aneeka says, it appears that the second reptilian wave to Earth was more aggressive than the first. The Ciakahrr quickly spread across Earth establishing cities, spaceport and mining operations and creating the civilization of Atlantis. The relatively recent establishment of a Taygetan colony on Earth in Lemuria may have been to assist their Terran Lyran cousins defend against the Ciakahrr.

According to Aneeka, the Ciakahrr enslaved Lyrans on Atlantis but they, also, allowed other species to establish colonies in the area they controlled. As a result, the Atlantean civilization emerged as a global presence. She says that the Ciakahrr, although formidable, did not rule the Atlantean civilization but preferred to operate independently of other reptilians.

Aneeka says that the Ciakahrr, also, established a presence on other planets in the solar system including Mars and Tiamat located in the present asteroid belt. Tiamat no longer exists as it is said to have been destroyed in a war between the Federation and the Reptilian Orion Empire. She notes that when the Ciakahrr arrived on Mars there were other ETs already established there.

Back on Earth, Aneeka says that some Lyran slaves escaped to Oceana. Soon thereafter, more Lyrans arrived on Earth to help them establish the Lemurian civilization with Mu its capital. She says that this civilization included Lyrans who were Atlantean separatists. The implication is that all the Lyrans that came to Lemuria were not escaped slaves. She, also, says the population of Lemuria included Taygetans and other Pleiadian races including the Solatians and Engans.

The Lemurian civilization developed rapidly technologically as a “matriarchal, holographic” society, a form common among Lyrans and other Pleiadians. Soon Lemuria became a rival to the reptilian ruled Atlantean civilization. 

As many other sources claim, the rivalry resulted in a war that destroyed Lemuria. Years later, it is said that the Atlantean civilization was destroyed in a natural catastrophe that it may have brought on or in a disastrous civil war.

Other Significant ETs

In this section, I focus on those races who like the reptilians of the Draco Ciakahrr Empire are said by the various sources to be hostile to Earth. These hostile ETs originate in many constellations other than Draco, including Orion, Aquila, Reticulum and Cygnus.

Different names are used to identify the organizations of the hostile ETs. These names such as, the Ciakahrr Orion Empire, the Orion Empire, the Nebu Orion Empire, the Alliance of Six are sometimes poorly defined and used inconsistently by writers. It is not clear if each is a distinct organization. 

In any event, their members overlap and they generally appear to cooperate. For example, Danaan says the Nebu Orion Empire a/k/a Council of Six is composed of six species calling themselves the Nebu meaning “Masters”: Maytra, Killy Tokurit, Eban, Grail, Ciakahrr and Indugutk. Additionally, the Nebu are said to use other species including the Do-Hu as servants. 

It must be stressed that hostile ETs cannot be solely identified by species. Some reptilians may be non-threatening with regard to Earth while some humans may assist hostile ETs.

Maytrei (Tall Greys)

According to Danaan, the Maytrei originate from two planets in the star system they call Megopei in the Andromedan Galaxy. They have been visiting Earth since before the last two glacial periods.

Their efforts to conquer Earth have been frustrated by the interference of the Ciakahrr, the Anunnaki and the Federation. Nonetheless, Danaan says that they openly abduct and enslave Terrans to work on mines on Earth’s moon and Mars. They, also, trade Terran slaves to the other species, primarily the reptilians.


The Eban are reptiloid greys from the planet Edemera, Carina star system, Carina Constellation. Danaan says that the Eban work on Earth alongside Terran forces that collaborate with the Draco and their agents. Their work includes hybridization of Terrans and ETs. I understand that the author William Cooper believes it was the Eban that negotiated the 1954 agreement with Eisenhower Administration officials permitting the ETs to experiment on humans and construct facilities on Earth.

Zeta Reticuli (Small Greys) 

Danaan says that the Zeta Reticuli originate on the twin planets Xrog in the Shamtbahala Star System. Genetically half insect, they mainly communicate telepathically accompanied by a crackling sound in the throat. They have a hive culture.

Allies, not slaves, of the Anunnaki, the Zeta Reticuli work with the U.S. military in underground Earth bases. Danaan says that the Anunnaki created a very human looking subspecies of the Zeta Reticuli that allowed them to be rulers of Egypt.


They originate in the binary star system Zeta Reticuli in the Constellation Reticuli. As their home world Elderan was dying, the Do-Hu left. However, they were later captured by the Orion Alliance and genetically altered for servitude. As they cannot reproduce, they are dependent on the Orion and Ciakahrr Empires for cloning to survive as a species. They have exceptional telepathic ability.

According to Danaan and others, the Do-Hu arrived on Earth as advance agents for the Ciakahrr and Orion Empires to induce the Eisenhower Administration to enter the Greada Treaty which permitted them to engage in genetic experiments with Terrans and build facilities on Earth. This oft used strategy is said to work around the Federation’s non-interference rule. Danaan claims that there are two thousand Do-Hu plus thousands of clones on Earth.

Solipsi Ra (Small Greys)

The Solipsi Ra originate in a star system which they name Aama in the Cygnus Constellation. A faction of the Solipsi Ra allied themselves with the Ciakahrr. According to Danaan, they work with the U.S. government in exchange for humans for experimentation. They are active in abductions.

Some of the Solipsi Ra are cloned to be slave workers. These slaves are essentially synthetic life forms. Danaan says that they are often mistaken for the Zeta Reticuli.


According to Danaan, the Kiily-Tokurit come from the planet Kiily in the Star System Suhail. They are not members of the Federation nor are they in alliances with any reptilians or greys. They tend to work solo although Danaan says that they sometimes employ the Solipsi Ra. Tall grey humanoids they have shape shifting ability. Their ships have cloaking ability and great fire power.

Their principal activity on Earth seems to be abduction.


The Grail are greys from Mintaka, one of the three stars on Orion’s belt. Danaan says that the Grail genetically engineered the captured Noor humanoids of Asba’a to become useful slaves through a slow hybridization program which combined Lyran humanoids and Zeta Reticuli greys. Danaan says that this was used as a template to develop human-grey hybridization programs.


According to Danaan, the Anunnaki’s home world is in a parallel dimension on planet Nibiru. The Anunnaki enter our dimension through a portal, possibly the Orion Nebula, in the Orion zone. Although human in appearance, they are genetically reptiloid. They manipulate the genetics of conquered worlds to create servile hybrids to assist them around the galaxy.

Although enemies of the Lyrans, they are not allies, but rather rivals of the Ciakahrr with whom they vie for control of Earth. Danaan says that when the Anunnaki came to Earth, they displaced the existing reptilian power. They went on to genetically engineer Terran humans to be slaves to mine gold and other resources for them. 

I note that Aneeka, the Taygetan source of Cosmic Agency and Pleiadian Knowledge disagrees with the view that Terrans were genetically manipulated by the Anunnaki. She states that the Lyrans successfully resisted these efforts.


The Mantis are insectoids who Danaan says originate in the Sombrero Galaxy, 28 million light years from Earth and call themselves the Akara. She says that they live in a hive society.

While some members of this group are said to assist the Federation, others, primarily Akari scientists, have been enslaved by the Orion Alliance to oversee procedures. Presumably, Danaan is referring to the genetic experiments of their grey masters on humans.


Danaan says that the Akhori originate on Vega in the Lyran Constellation and the planet Akharoia in the star system Altair in the Aquila Constellation. Humanoid, they are cousins of the Lyrans.

Although members of the Federation, they are wild cards. They are heavily involved in the abductions of Terrans by the reptilians’ grey agents, as well as, involved in interbreeding programs with Terrans.

Solar Planets – ET activities


Danaan says that Venus, which experiences the 4th density is a scientific outpost for the Federation where they conduct their work in biodomes and underground facilities. Venus is, also, a habitat of higher density beings such as the Arcturians (Ohorai).

Earth (Antarctica)

In addition to the facilities of the Do-Hu/Ciakahrr and Anunnaki mentioned above, Danaan claims that the Ciakahrr and their Altair allies established extended underground military operations in Antarctica in cooperation with the German Nazi government. Although the Germans were defeated in World War II, the reptilians continued to control the Antarctic bases until, she says, they were recently ejected by the Federation in cooperation with Earth forces.

Additionally, Danaan says that over a long period, a variety of ET species migrated underground to inhabit what is called the Agarthan network. Some, like the Telosii, created a vast web of ancient underground tunnels and interbred with Terrans. Danaan says the Ciakahrr and their allies have taken over most of this underground network and use the tunnels to connect with bases of their Terran allies. 

The Ciakahrr and their allies including the Eban, Do-Hu and Zeta Reticuli, also, maintain large, multilevel underground facilities where Danaan claims they conduct experiments on abducted Terrans including cloning, genetic manipulation and mind control. She says that these facilities are operated with the cooperation of Terran government allies and that the largest such facility is near Taos, New Mexico.


First populated by a humanoid race, the Noor of Man, Mars’ environment was destroyed as collateral damage in a war between the reptilians and the Federation. According to Danaan, the reptilians conduct mining operations on Mars worked by slaves. The Do Hu have an outpost on Mars and there is a small Terran outpost there as well. She says that benevolent higher dimension beings have teaching facilities on Mars for ET envoys/starseeds to be incarnated on Earth.


Danaan says the Ashtar from Sirius B, allies of the Federation, maintain a headquarters and substantial military presence on Jupiter. The Ashtar personnel include many different races.


Although the accounts of the various sources differ in many details, they generally break down ETs into two groups – the benign and the hostile. The Taygetans/Lyran, Sirians, Andromedans and Arcturians are the conspicuous “good guys” while the Dracos and their allies are the “bad” guys.

If one sees these accounts of ETs solely as myths, they fit very well into the ancient human view of the universe as divided between opposites, light and the dark, good and the evil. We see this dualistic cosmology, for example, in the ancient Persian religion Zoroastrianism in which Asha, the Creator’s force for truth, opposes Druj, falsehood.

But for a moment, let’s consider the possibility that the accounts have important elements of truth. That is to say that ETs have been visiting Earth for perhaps one million years, that some settled here and are among our ancestors, that they have affected our cultural development and that the Earth has been a stage for their rivalries.

What would this imply?

I think it suggests that we, Terrans, are relatively small fries in a galaxy of ETs who regard us in quite different ways. On one hand, there may be benevolent ones like the Taygetans who see us as underachieving cousins. On the other hand, there may be rapacious ones like the Dracos who would like to either genetically reengineer us to be slaves or have us for dinner.

While the choice of Earth’s allies might be quite obvious, we should bear in mind that even our friends have their own strategic interests. The top priority of the Federation may be to ensure that Earth does not fall under the control of its adversaries, such as the Dracos. Whether Terrans are subject to homegrown tyrants is probably not the Federation’s top priority. 

Furthermore, we must be careful not to become just a pawn in an ET power struggle. Terran policy should be to seek friendly, mutually beneficial relations with all – making strategic alliances only when necessary and not at the sacrifice of independence. 

Additionally, though ETs may be technologically more advanced than Terrans, they probably do not really understand us. For example, a homogenous ET society that functions on consensus may not appreciate the value we place on such things as personal freedom, the right to dissent and the need to limit government power.

In responding to the challenge presented by ETs, Terrans should focus on the following objectives:

1. Preservation of our planet’s autonomy and our personal freedom

2. Ending self-destructive internecine Terran wars, economic exploitation and environmental despoliation 

3. Ensuring that all decisions made effecting our galactic future are made transparently with the consent of the people

4. Ensuring that all new technology gained from space exploration and ET contact is made available to all people of Earth without profiteering.

“Were the First People in Ireland Extraterrestrials?” By Kim T. MacDermotRoe

Were the First People in Ireland Extraterrestrials?

Is it possible that the earliest humans in Ireland might have been extraterrestrials? Specifically, might they have been settlers on Earth from the Constellation Lyra who fled Atlantis for Ireland during the Great Flood?

While this theory may seem bizarre, incredibly there is evidence that suggests that might be the case.

In considering this possibility, let’s first look at the early Irish histories regarding the initial settlement of Ireland for clues that might support this theory. Then, we will compare this ancient history with relevant information recently obtained from purported extraterrestrial sources.

Early Irish History

The early Irish histories state that Ireland was settled in six successive invasions. The first settlers in Ireland were a woman named Banba and fifty maidens and three men who accompanied her. The Book of Ballymote citing a note from Cin Droma Sneachta. See Dún na mBárc and the Lady Ceasairby Henry Morris in The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, Seventh Series, Vol. 3, No. 1 (Jun. 30, 1933), pp. 68-87 at p. 85. Among the three men was Fintan, the Wise, a seer and shape shifter who is said to have lived for thousands of years.

In the Lebor Gabála Érenn (literally “The Book of the Taking of Ireland”), an 11th century retelling of the ancient histories, Banba’s name is changed to Lady Ceasair, a grandchild of Noah, who Noah sends to safety 40 days before the Flood. The family relation to Noah was likely added to connect Ireland’s early arrivals to the Christian biblical tradition. One version of the story says Banba was refused a place on the Ark and that she departed from Egypt prior to the Flood on the advice of her foster father, an Egyptian priest.

No date is given for Banba’s arrival in Ireland. However, a reasonable guess for the arrival of the sixth or most recent wave of invaders, the Miliesians (Gaels), would be 2500 to 3,000 years ago. From this we might infer, that Banba’s group, the first of six, was considerably earlier. Estimated dates for the Great Flood of Noah vary widely from 4,500 BP to 12,500 BP.

In another ancient Irish tradition, Banba was said to be the daughter of Delbáeth, High King of Ireland, and Ernmas, a mother goddess. Both parents were of the Tuatha Dé Danann (“People of the Goddess Danu”).

According to the Lebor, the Tuatha Dé Danann were descendants of two earlier waves of invaders, the tribes of Partholon, who followed Banba and who some say came from Greece, and of Nemed who followed Partholon and came from Scythia. It is interesting that Nemed’s name comes from the reconstructed Proto-Celtic word nemos meaning “sky” or “heaven”.

After a disaster that wiped out much of the population, the surviving members of Nemed’s tribe split into three groups and left Ireland. The group that went to the north became the Tuatha Dé Danann while those that went to Greece became the Fir Bolgs and those that went to Britain became the ancestors of the Britons. The Dé Danann and Fir Bolgs later returned to Ireland.

The Tuatha Dé Danann, dominant in Ireland when the Milesians arrived, were said to have had magical powers which they acquired during their time in the north. Indeed, some scholars believe that the Dé Danaan were actually a pantheon of gods that were cast as magical people by Christian historians. See Tomas O’hAodha lecture published on YouTube, April 25, 2017.

Banba and her two sisters, Ériu and Fodla are the trinity of patron goddesses of Ireland. Banba may have, also, been viewed as a goddess of fertility and war. In the Tochomlad mac Miledh a hEspain i nErind: no Cath Tailten, it is related that as the Milesians were journeying through Ireland, “they met victorious Banba among her troop of faery magic hosts”.

The Milesians, named after their leader called Milesius (meaning “soldier’), are the people we now call the Gaels, the modern Irish and Scottish Highlanders. Irish tradition says the Gaels originated in Scythia and migrated south, sojourning in Greece, moving on to North Africa and later establishing a kingdom in what is now the northern Spanish province of Galicia. When they launched their conquest of Ireland they were led by Milesius’ sons and his wife Scota who was said to the daughter of the Egyptian pharaoh Nectanubus. When you compare the Gaels’ origin story to that of the earlier arrivals, it appears that over time the various legends have been altered, combined and later separated.

After inconclusive fighting, the Milesians and Dé Danann decided to negotiate. They reached an agreement to divide Ireland between them. The Milesians would have the world above while the Dé Danann would have the world below, i.e., the Otherworld.

In Gaelic and Brittonic mythology, the Otherworld is usually described as a supernatural realm of everlasting youth, beauty, health, abundance and joy. The Otherworld is similar to the parallel universe. In Ireland, it is believed that the Otherworld can be entered through portals in cairns and sometimes by going underwater or across the western sea.

Manannán mac Lir, Over King of the Dé Danann, whose name means Manannán son of the sea god Lir, led his people to the Otherworld and used the magical mist of invisibility (féth fíada) to cloak their whereabouts. His new Otherworld domain was called Emain Ablach and was described as an island paradise.

It is interesting to note that the name Ablach is derived from the Old Irish word ablach, meaning “of the apples/fruits” suggesting a place of great fertility. Ablach has the same linguistic origin as Avalon, the Otherworld island paradise of the Celtic Arthurian legend.

Geoffrey of Monmouth’s 1136 Historia Regum Britanniae (“The History of the Kings of Britain”), describes the Avalon of the Arthurian tradition as a magical island where Excalibur, King Arthur’s sword, was forged and where Arthur was taken to recover from his grave wounds at the Battle of Camlann. Geoffrey states that Avalon was ruled by nine sisters, enchantresses, of whom Morgana Le Fay was the leader. He describes the island as miraculous in its fertility with all sorts of crops flourishing without need for cultivation.

So, what do we have so far?

The Irish mytho-history describes the first people in Ireland, Banba and her companions, as arriving just before the Great Flood that destroyed most of the world. Banba is, also, associated with supernatural powers by her position as a princess of the Tuatha Dé Danann, as well as, her role as a patron goddess of Ireland.

Furthermore, Banba, a goddess and Dé Danann princess, and, Manannán mac Lir, the son of a sea god, and King of the Dé Danann, had supernatural powers that might be associated with an advanced extraterrestrial race. And, although, it could be a coincidence, the very name Lir suggests that they may have descended from the Lyrans of the Constellation Lyra.

Taken together, these details are interesting, but not very convincing evidence of the Lyran/Irish theory. However, when we look at statements provided by extraterrestrial researcher Malgosia Duszak and myths from around the world, the plausibility of the theory becomes much stronger.

Duszak Interview of Swaruu

Malgosia Duszak, known as Gosia, who researches extraterrestrials, says that a few years ago, she was contacted by humans from the planets Erra and Temer in the Taygetan Star System. Although Earth’s astronomers cannot see these planets, the star Taygeta can be observed in the Pleiades.

Gosia has conducted many interviews with them including several said to be with a woman identified as Swaruu of Erra and has published transcripts of these interviews through her channel Cosmic Agency and through her colleagues’ website Pleiadian Knowledge. Gosia says that she receives answers to interview questions in writing from the Taygetans through the internet. I note that Gosia’s motive is not commercial since she does not charge for any of the information she publishes.

At the time of many of the interviews, the Taygetans claim to be in spacecraft in the vicinity of Earth. The Taygetans say that they are members of the Federation of Planets and that they have a special interest in monitoring Earth, not only, because they are cousins of Terrans, but also, because Earth is at a critical point in its history. However, they say their ability to assist Terrans is limited by the Federation’s non-interference policy.

Of course, the authenticity of these interviews cannot be independently confirmed. But as you will see, the information provided does provide unexpected support for the Lyran/Irish theory. I found the corroboration particularly surprising as I assume that Gosia, who is Polish and operates largely in Spanish, is unlikely to be familiar with the details of Irish mytho- history.

In an interview entitled Atlantis, Lemuria, Reptilians, Adam and Evepublished November 2, 2020Swaruu said her people came to Taygeta in the Pleiades as part of a diaspora following the destruction of their original homeworlds, Avalon and Lyra, in the Constellation Lyra by an invasion of Draco reptilians.

It is interesting to note that, elsewhere, the Draco are described as being part of the Orion Empire. In Greek mythology, the Pleiades or Seven Sisters are pursued and one, Merope, raped by Orion, the hunter. It is said that Orion is still pursuing them from his constellation next to the Pleiades Constellation. One of the stars in the Pleiades Constellation is Taygeta.

Swaruu describes Avalon and Lyra as near the star Vega, the brightest star in the Constellation Lyra. Another prominent source of extraterrestrial information, Elena Danaan names the star Mana in the Constellation Lyra as the star of the Taygetans’ homeworlds.

The name Manannán mac Lir of Irish history can be connected with the Lyrans in two ways. “Man”, whose roots may go back to proto Ind-European, in its original form meant, not just a person, but a people. And the similarity of the name Lir, the Celtic sea god, to the Lyrans home star group is, obvious.

The Celtic god of the sea, Lir, is similar to the Olympian god of sea, Poseidon. Poseidon, like Zeus, was the son of the titan Cronus, one of the original Titans and ancestor of the Olympians. According to Alex Collier, an extraterrestrial researcher who says that he has been in contact with Andromedans, the Titans were actually Lyrans.

There is a remarkable parallel between Avalon, the home world of the Lyrans, and the Avalon of ancient Irish and Arthurian tradition. According to Swaruu, the Lyran home world Avalon was extremely fertile producing abundant food supplies with little effort – an idyll. This is echoed in the descriptions of the extreme fertility of the enchanted island Avalon in the Arthurian legend and that of the paradise island Ablach/Avalon in the Celtic Otherworld.

Swaruu says that Erra and Temer were just two of the many planets in the galaxy colonized by the Lyrans fleeing the reptilians. Earth was among them. Swaruu is not clear when the Lyrans arrived on Earth. However, it appears to have been more than 40,000 years ago.

According to Swaruu, the Lyrans established an advanced holographic society which represented the high level of technology they brought with them. They lived alongside indigenous Earth hominids including the Neanderthals, as well as, other extraterrestrials. These peoples together with later arriving Taygetans formed the basis of Lemuria which occupied large parts of the Pacific Ocean, as well as, the Indian subcontinent.

Swaruu says that Earth, including Lemuria, was attacked by an invasion of reptilians and that many Lyrans were killed and others enslaved. These Lyran slaves, Swaruu claims, are the ancestors of the Biblical Adamic Race. The date of this reptilian invasion of Earth appears to be about 40,000 or 50,000 BP.

While Lemuria was greatly reduced by the devasting effects of the reptilian attack, it appears to have survived in some reduced form. Meanwhile, the reptilians established a multi-species global empire, Atlantis, which as the name implies included land now under the Atlantic Ocean, as well as, other territories in Europe and the Mideast.

Swaruu says that reptilian efforts to genetically modify its Lyran slave population failed. Swaruu claims that present day humans are identical genetically to their Lyran ancestors who she implies were the only people of extraterrestrial origin to remain on Earth after the Great Flood.

I note that this human ancestry even under Swaruu’s explanation could include other extraterrestrial races such as the Pleiadians and Andromedans who ET researchers generally agree descend from the Lyrans. In his interview, Alex Collier says that Lyrans are the ancestors of the white race only.

Swaruu says that during the course of Lemuria’s ongoing conflict with Atlantis, the Taygetans of Lemuria encouraged a revolt of the Lyran slaves in Atlantis. The revolt, led by Lyran women slaves, was successful and the Lyrans/Adams fled Atlantis. This intervention, Swaruu says, led to a brutal reprisal by the reptilians who massacred Lyrans and Taygetans.

It is interesting to note here that the Lyran women’s leadership in the Atlantean revolt reflects the fact that the Lyran and Taygetan societies are said to be matriarchal. It would appear that Banba of the ancient Irish histories was, also, from a matriarchal society as the Irish sources clearly name her as the leader of that first group to arrive in Ireland.

At this point, the Federation sent war ships led by the Taygetans of the Pleiades to the Solar System to help their Terran cousins defend against the reptilians. A great war ensued which resulted in the destruction of Tiamat, a planet between Mars and Jupiter which is now the Asteroid Belt, and in the devastation of the surface and atmosphere of Mars.

According to Swaruu, the destruction of Tiamat, a water planet, caused the Great Flood that inundated Earth’s civilization about 12,500 BP. Thus, it would appear that the flight of the Lyrans/Adams from Atlantis took place during the war and just before the Great Flood.

With respect to our present investigaion, here is the critical detail in Swaruu’s history of Earth. Swaruu says that when Atlantis was destroyed survivors, the slaves and some reptilians, took refuge in Ireland and the highlands of Scotland.

In his dialogue, Timaeus and Critias, Plato describes Atlantis as a highly advanced civilization centered on an island just outside the Straits of Gibraltar. While Plato says that Atlantis was destroyed in a single day, Edgar Cayce suggests that it was destroyed in stages with the central island being the last territory of the empire to be destroyed. So, there would have been some time for the more cautious to flee to safety.

Other Atlantean researches have made the case that those who fled Atlantis took refuge in many less advanced lands including the Americas and Western Europe where they utilized their advanced knowledge. See, for example, Frank Joseph Survivors of Atlantis: Their Impact on World Culture. (2004) and David Wilcock’s discussion of Atlantis in The Shift of the Ages.

Chapter 2. As part of his evidence, Joseph cites myths from cultures around the world including the Irish Celts.

The possibility that Banba, a goddess and magical princess, and Manannán, the son of Lir, the sea god and, indeed, the Tuatha De Danann were survivors from Atlantis is consistent with other legends. For example, in the Sumerian myth of Oannes, a partly amphibious sea god, taught people literacy, agriculture, astronomy and law and mysteries. See Wilcocksupra, quoting Manly P. Hall’s The Secret Teachings of All Ages where Hall references the original modern Atlantis researcher Ignatius Donnelly author of Atlantis, the Antediluvian World.

Furthermore, many researchers believe that these god-like people are part of an early Earth history of human extraterrestrial interaction. See, for example, Gods and Spacemen of the Ancient East by W. Raymond Drake; The Earth Chronicles and Genesis Revisited by Zecharia Sitchin and Alien Identities by Richard L. Thompson discussed by Wilcocksupra. In this regard, there has been special attention given to the possible role of extraterrestrials in the development of the ancient Vedic culture including their flying machines called Vimanas.


When we put the Irish and Arthurian traditions together with Swaruu’s account of the history of the Lyrans on Earth, a theory that identifies the early Irish arrival of Banba and her companions, perhaps, the Tuatha Dé Danaan, as well, with the Lyrans from Atlantis does not seem so preposterous.

In particular, Banba was said to have come to Ireland by sea just before Atlantis was destroyed perhaps 12,500 years ago. And Banba appears to have come from a matriarchal society – not the norm in ancient times or now.

Furthermore, Banba and Manannán mac Lir were viewed as gods and their tribe, the Tuatha Dé Danaan, as magical. This indicates a supernatural power that one associates with Titans, Olympians, as well as, technologically advanced extraterrestrials.

Avalon is, both, the idyllic homeworld of the Lyrans, as well as, the enchanted island of ancient and medieval Irish and Celtic myth. Avalon, whether the Lyran planet or the isles of Earthly myths, can be said to represent a lost paradise to which people long to return.

As we have noted the name Manannán mac Lir means Manannán son of Lir. Perhaps this is an allusion to Manannán’s planet and people of origin,

Lyra/Lyrans. And through his association with Poseidon, Manannán is a descendant of the Titans who Alex Collier claims were Lyrans.

The possibility that the origins of modern may be linked to extraterrestrials is, also, interesting in light of mainstream anthropologists’ failure to locate the so called “missing link” in human evolution. Perhaps the arrival of extraterrestrials in ancient times provides an explanation for the sudden appearance of modern humans on Earth about 200,000 to 300,000 years ago.

Furthermore, evidence from the most ancient archeological sites around the world points to the presence of a high technology whose origin has no Earthly explanation. And as we discussed above, many myths from around the world indicate that advanced knowledge was brought by god-like visitors from the sea – visitors whom some ancient alien researchers believe were extraterrestrials.

Could not the story of Banba and Tuatha Dé Danann be one of these many global myths indicating the possible presence of extraterrestrials at critical times in human history – myths that over time conflated these real otherworld humans into magical gods from the “Otherworld”?

Genealogical Connections to Banba and the Tuatha Dé Danaan

The question of the precise location of Lady Ceasair’s burial has long interested Irish historians. In searching for the location, Morris notes that the Lebor specifically states that Lady Ceasair was buried at Cúil Ceasra(ch) “over the fruitful Boyle (River)” where a cairn, Cairn Ceasra(ch) was erected. He believes that she journeyed there after making landfall in the West of Ireland and traveling East and North through County Roscommon’s Plains of Boyle. The Town of Boyle and the Boyle River are just north of the Plains.

After examining ancient burial mounds (rendered dumha, often shortened to do, in Irish) in the area, Morris concluded that the probable location of Lady Ceasair’s burial site is a big dumha/cairn/tumulus in the Townland of Knockadoobrusna. This cairn, located just a mile south of the Boyle River and the Town of Boyle, commands an excellent view of the river. Ibid at page 82.

From a personal genealogical perspective, it is interesting to note that MacDermot Roe, the ancestor of the author’s family, who died in 1365, was buried at nearby Boyle Abbey. Many other members of the family were buried at the Abbey until the English occupation of the 17th century.

Additionally, the Lebor says that after their sojourn north of Ireland, the Tuatha Dé Danann returned to the country in large dark clouds claimed by

ancient alien theorists to have been extraterrestrial space craft. According to the Lebor, the Dé Danann descended on a mountain anciently named Sliabh Comaicne, now called Sliabh an Iarainn, on the east shore of Lough Allen in County Leitrim just north of Drumshanbo. It is interesting that the MacDermot Roe territory, Tir Tuathail, in northeastern County Roscommon is located just a couple of miles west of Sliabh Comaicne on the other side of Lough Allen.

“Earth’s ET Diplomatic Strategy” By by Kim MacDermotRoe

Earth’s ET Diplomatic Strategy

Protecting Our Independence

by Kim MacDermotRoe

The objectives of an Earth extraterrestrial policy are to protect the autonomy of Earth, the security and liberty of its people and to create mutually beneficial relationships with ET species. While Earth’s ET policy should be backed by strong military capabilities, war is an extremely undesirable last resort and is to be avoided if at all possible.

Fortunately, diplomacy provides a means by which a people may ensure their independence even in the face of stronger, more technologically advanced potential adversaries. Here, we will examine two cases from Earth history in which nations used diplomacy to protect their independence in the face of much stronger adversaries. Although each nation faced a unique challenge, their experiences provide Earth with useful lessons on how we may, not only, survive, but also, prosper in this new age.

Yugoslavia – Post World War II

At the end of World War II, Yugoslavia, a federation of several distinct ethnic groups, found itself caught between two expanding Great Powers – the United States and the Soviet Union. The United States consolidated its dominance in Western Europe through an alliance that became the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance while the Soviet Union established control over Eastern Europe and formed the Warsaw Pact to counter NATO.

From the Soviet Union’s perspective, it was logical that their expanding Eastern European Empire should include Yugoslavia, their Slavic cousins to the south. In addition to its strategic position as an East West corridor, Yugoslavia could provide the Soviets with long sought Mediterranean ports. In order to prevent this development, the West, led by the United States, was determined to keep Yugoslavia out of the Soviet orbit.

That Yugoslavia maintained its independence for several decades after World War II was due to the skill of one man, Josip Broz Tito. Tito understood that that the way to preserve Yugoslavia’s independence was to steer a course between the two Great Powers while maintaining unity in his country

Tito had led Yugoslav partisan forces against the Germans during World War II defeating them with little help from the Red Army. A national hero and symbol of the country’s unity, he was elected to lead Yugoslavia, as well as, serve as Foreign Minister.

Yugoslavia’s position was geographically and politically precarious. Soon after the war, Yugoslavia found itself almost surrounded by Soviet satellites including Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. Yet, Tito, though a communist, defied the Soviets by rejecting their communist economic model and he distanced Yugoslavia from Cominform, the central organization of international communism, while pursuing a nationalist foreign policy.

Stalin, the Soviet leader, responded by expelling Yugoslavia from Cominform, threatening an invasion of Yugoslavia and attempting several times to assassinate Tito. However, when Tito refused to be intimidated, Stalin backed down.

Tito wasted no time in approaching the United States for assistance. Eager to expand its influence in the Balkans, the U.S. sent Yugoslavia aid similar to the Marshall Plan offered to Western Europe. Yet, unlike other U.S. aid recipients, Yugoslavia refused to align itself with the West.

Tito took advantage of Stalin’s death in 1953 to seek warmer relations with the Soviets. He even received economic assistance from COMECON, the Soviet’s response to the American Marshall Plan. Although the new Soviet leaders sought to repair their Yugoslav relations damaged by Stalin, Yugoslavia refused to tow their line. In the 1960’s Tito supported the Prague Spring, an attempt by Czechoslovakia to exit Soviet rule.

Tito’s greatest diplomatic success was to be a founder of the Non-Aligned Movement along with the leaders of India, Indonesia, Egypt and Ghana. As the first Secretary General of the organization, Tito substantially raised his international prestige and that of Yugoslavia as an advocate of neutrality in the Cold War.

And Tito followed through by establishing close ties with developing nations and by providing military aid to anti-colonial movements including the Algerian independence war against France. Tito, a pragmatist, maintained diplomatic relations with right wing governments like Paraguay and even gave military aid to the anti-communist government of Guatemala.

Domestically, Tito bolstered the economy by supporting a new “self-management” model for business. This model, distinctly different from centrally controlled Stalinism, converted state owned enterprises into employee run cooperative businesses with profit sharing. And unlike the Soviets and their allies, Tito adopted liberal travel laws for his own citizens and foreign visitors which led to important cultural exchanges.

Tito’s personal role as a symbol of national unity was bolstered by a constitutional system that gave a considerable degree of autonomy to the several republics and regions comprising the Yugoslav Federation. Support for his government was also underpinned by economic growth and a relatively liberal cultural environment that contrasted with the communist Eastern Bloc countries.

Nonetheless, it must be remembered that Tito was authoritarian. Though personally popular, he ensured the stability of his government by persecuting dissidents, especially Stalinists, and maintaining a secret police modeled on the Soviet KGB.

After Tito’s death in 1980, his successors could not hold together the various Yugoslav republics. Serbia, the largest federal republic, sought to expand into other regions of Yugoslavia. And with the end of the Cold War, there was no longer the fear of a Soviet invasion to unite people.

Even if Tito had been succeeded by a leader with his diplomatic talents, it would have been difficult to preserve Yugoslav unity and independence. The outbreak of the Yugoslav civil war, provided an opportunity for the United States, through NATO, to greatly expand its influence in the region through military intervention. At the conclusion of the war, the United States was able to militarily occupy the broken up Yugoslavia with a major installation, Camp Bondsteel, in Kosovo.

The American Revolution

America during its rebellion against Britain colonialism and during its first century as a Republic is another example of how to preserve autonomy through skillful diplomacy. As in the case of Yugoslavia, this diplomatic strategy involved, both, exploiting Great Power rivalry and maintaining neutrality in the rebellion’s aftermath.

In the summer of 1776, elected representatives of the thirteen British North American colonies proclaimed themselves to be an independent nation. When they did so, the new country had an inexperienced, poorly trained and equipped army, a severely outgunned navy, and a chronic shortage of funds.

In contrast, Britain, determined to bring the colonists to heel, possessed the most powerful military in the world. Its naval dominance enabled Britain to bring a sizeable army to America to suppress the rebellion and to close the colonies’ ports. And Britain’s financial resources allowed it to sustain a long war far from home.

In addition to its military and financial superiority, Britain exploited colonial vulnerabilities. Alliances with Native Americans dispossessed by the colonists allowed the British to create a second front on the colonies’ western frontier and offers of freedom to enslaved African Americans threatened to destabilize communities dependent on slave labor. Unfortunately, the rebels failed to address slavery out of fear of alienating southern colonies.

To compensate for its weakness, the fledgling nation launched a diplomatic effort focused on Britain’s principal adversaries, France and Spain. France, the dominant European power of the 17th century, was being overtaken by the British. Only a short time before the American Revolution, the British had defeated the French for control of, both, Canada and India. And Spain, an ally of France, had been a British enemy since Spain’s attempted invasion of Britain in 1588.

Although France and Spain were cautious about officially supporting the Revolution, early on they provided help in terms of weapons, ammunition, supplies and financing. This aid arranged by American diplomat Silas Deane was funneled through Roderigue Hortalez and Company, a private business created in 1775 to coordinate French and Spanish assistance. Additionally, the neutral Dutch, whose profit seeking desires trumped their politics, shipped the Americans massive amounts of armaments and supplies from their Caribbean colony St. Eustatius in exchange for valuable American exports such as tobacco and indigo.

While American diplomats secured unofficial commercial assistance for the Revolution, they, also, desired military support. To this end, the diplomatically shrewd and very popular Benjamin Franklin was added to the American delegation in Paris.

Although individuals like the Marquis de Lafayette had joined the American Army, King Louis XVI was hesitant to commit his country without a good prospect for victory. His hesitation ended with the American success at Saratoga in 1779 when a large British force under Burgoyne surrendered to the rebels. Now supported by a large contingent of well-trained French soldiers and the rebuilt French navy, the Americans had the advantage. And the war effectively ended in the successful American/French siege of the British army at Yorktown in 1781.

And although Spain would not officially ally itself with America, it effectively entered the war through an alliance with France. The Spanish attacked the British on the Mississippi and along the Gulf Coast culminating in the capture of British West Florida. Through its port at New Orleans, Spain provided an indispensable alternative route for American supplies since the American ports were blockaded. Additionally, Spain financed the final act at Yorktown with gold and silver from Havana.

Although grateful for the European support in the Revolution, the new United States government under President George Washington and Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson pursued a policy of neutrality – avoiding foreign wars or even alliances while pursuing friendly relations with all nations.

The neutrality policy, followed by Washington’s successors for a century, enabled the United States to keep military spending modest while it focused on economic expansion. By the late 19th century, economic growth, aided by large scale infrastructure projects and a nationalist system of protective tariffs, made the United States one of the world’s leading economies.


Based upon these historical examples, Earth should consider the following questions in order to be successful in extraterrestrial diplomacy:

1. What is the nature of each ET species and what are its objectives with regard to Earth?

2. What are the relationships between the various ETs?

3. What do we, Earth and ETs, have to offer each other that would establish a mutually beneficial relationship?

4. How do we maintain Earth unity in dealing with ETs?

Questions 1 and 2 are critical matters for intelligence gathering. With regard to Question 3, it is especially important to consider Earth’s strengths, such as, our abundant natural resources and our strategic position on a spiral arm of the Milky Way.

Question 4 is the most challenging. Among other things, it calls upon Earth governments to end internecine war and to address conditions, such as, vast economic and social inequality, human rights abuses and the despoilation of nature that, not only, cause internal instability, but also, provide ETs with the moral justification for interfering with Earth’s internal affairs.

Finally, in protecting its autonomy Earth would be best served by a policy of neutrality. Earth should pursue friendly relations with all comers – encouraging trade and cultural exchange, while resisting restrictive alliances and tempting imperial adventures. Such a policy would, not only, help Earth stay independent, but also, provide the basis for human progress and Earth’s peaceful integration into the spacefaring community.

“Take Me to Your Leader: A Proposed Earth Council,” By Kim MacDermotRoe.

“Take Me to Your Leader” A Proposed Earth Council by
Kim MacDermotRoe

In light of the long history of documented UFO encounters and the recent revelations of the United States government regarding UFO’s including videos and testimony by current and former military, it is not unreasonable to believe that there is some likelihood, not only, that Extra-Terrestrials have visited Earth, but also, that at some point in the not too distant future ETs will formally establish communication with the people of Earth.

The prospect of encountering ETs is extremely exciting and holds promise for a wonderful future. However, history is replete with examples of peoples who were destabilized and sometimes destroyed in the course of First Contact with peoples possessing superior technology. And we must assume that ETs arriving at Earth have superior technology as they possess travel capabilities far beyond those presently available to Earth’s people.

While there is good reason to suspect that ETs that have visited Earth do not wish to harm us, the people of Earth ought to be prepared for a worst case scenario – that is that ETs may wish to extract benefits from the occupation of Earth regardless of the consequences to its inhabitants. Earth should “Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.”

As is clearly understood in the military and in other critical activities, thorough preparation, including planning and training, are essential to achieving the best possible outcome in confronting a challenge. Since organizing Earth nations and preparing for First Contact may take several years, this work should start now when people can think clearly and work calmly rather than waiting for a crisis to develop and being forced to respond unprepared.

In preparing for First Contact, first, one needs to address that age old meme, “Take me to your leader”. Indeed, who will represent the peoples of Earth in relations with ETs? And, specifically, is the United Nations the right institution for the task or is a new organization necessary and, if so, how would it operate?

Let’s first take a look at the United Nations as a possible representative for the people of Earth.

The United Nations was created over 70 years ago in the aftermath of World War II. It consists of a General Assembly with ambassadors from 193 nations, a so-called Security Council and a Secretariat. While on the surface the UN, through the General Assembly, appears to be representative of the nations of the Earth and their people, it is not. In fact, all significant power in the UN is still retained by the World War II victors, the United States, Russia, China, England and France through their permanent membership on the UN’s all powerful Security Council. See UN Charter Chapter V, Articles 25-32.

No resolution of the General Assembly can take effect without approval by the Security Council. UN Charter, Chapter IV, Articles 9-22. Furthermore, each of five Security Council’s permanent members possesses veto power. So a resolution approved overwhelmingly by the General Assembly can and has in the past been nullified by a single permanent Security Council member even if supported by the other Security Council members.

Additionally, executive power of the UN, also, resides in the Security Council’s five permanent members. While the Secretariat might sound like an executive branch of government, it has no independent power under the UN Charter. UN Charter, Chapter XV, Articles 97-101.

The UN Charter designates the International Court of Justice as the UN’s principal judicial organ. UN Charter, Chapter XIV, Article 92. However, the Court has no authority to check the power of the Security Council’s permanent members since its jurisdiction is limited to controversies between nations that both parties agree to submit to the Court. Statute of the International Court of Justice, Chapter II, Article 36

Thus, the UN lacks the checks and balances of government present in democratic societies through the separation of powers – typically through three branches – the executive, the legislative and the judicial. In the United States these three branches are quite distinct while in parliamentary countries the executive leaders, also, sit in the legislature. However, in parliamentary countries the leaders are, not only, subject to judicial review, but also, may be publicly challenged in open debate in the legislature by other members of Parliament.

The 188 UN member nations who are not permanent Security Council members are quite aware that the General Assembly is little more than a debating society. Although many of these countries frequently protest their lack of power, they are somewhat mollified by the thousands of patronage opportunities in the UN’s vast, complex and largely ineffective bureaucracy.

Since any one of the five permanent Security Council members can block any proposed amendment to the UN Charter which would reduce their power, it is very unlikely that the UN can be reformed to make it a more representative organization. Thus, it appears that a new global organization is needed to represent the Earth in ET relations.

The following draft Constitution for an Earth Council is an attempt to create a structure for such a global organization. The draft Constitution is followed by FAQs to help explain its provisions. It is hoped that this proposed Constitution will stimulate a public discussion leading to a consensus of Earth people on a global approach to ET relations.

Proposed Earth Council Constitution

Article I

We the people of Earth through our national governments create this Earth Council for the following purposes:

1. to represent us in our relations with Extra-Terrestrials beings (ETs) so that we can speak with one voice,

2. to ensure that all relations with ETs are transparent so that the public may be fully informed,

3. to protect Earth and all its inhabitants from intentional or unintentional threats presented by ETs,

4. to ensure that technology derived directly or indirectly from ET sources is available to all nations and people of Earth on a non-profit basis, and

5. to ensure that Earth plays a constructive role as a member of the cosmic community. Our guiding principle is respect for all life forms.

Article II

All Earth nations are welcome as members. Membership must be approved by the applicant’s legislature or in a plebiscite.

Nation members are represented by their highest elected official so as to ensure that the representatives reflect the will of their people.

Article III

The Council has the following powers:

1. to negotiate and enter into treaties with ETs on behalf of Earth subject to the treaty ratification procedures each nation requires,

2. to conduct on-going diplomatic relations with ETs on behalf of Earth,

3. to organize and coordinate the military defense of Earth from ET threats,

4. to study health threats to life on Earth that may arise from ET contact and to coordinate needed responses, and

5. to coordinate the monitoring of celestial objects that might endanger Earth and to organize needed responses to the approach of those objects.

The Council has no authority to intervene in the internal affairs of any nation, nor to infringe on the human rights of any person.

Article IV

1. Council meetings shall be held at such time as may be agreed upon by its members.

2. Council meetings shall generally be virtual – through interactive electronic media to reduce costs, to promote flexibility in scheduling and to guard against centralization of power in any nation. However, the Council by majority vote may call an in-person meeting when deemed necessary.

3. National leaders shall be personally present at Council meetings and not have an ambassador take their place.

4. Absentee or proxy voting is not permitted.

5. The public has the right to view meetings of the Council or its committees.

Article V

1. President

The Council shall elect a President who shall serve for a two year term with a maximum of two consecutive terms. The President presides at Council meetings. The President acts as the official spokesperson for the Council in relations with ETs and must follow the Council’s instructions in representing Earth.

2. Secretary

The members shall elect a Secretary who shall serve for a two year term with a maximum of two consecutive terms. The Secretary notifies members of meetings, makes technical arrangement for meetings, maintains records of meetings, as well as, records of correspondence and transactions of the Council. The Secretary is, also, responsible for insuring technical support for Council meetings held electronically.

3. If the President is unable to complete their term, the Secretary will succeed as President to complete the President’s term. The Council will immediately elect a new Secretary to fill a vacancy caused by the departure of the President or by the inability of a Secretary to complete their term.

4. Treasurer

1. The Treasurer shall collect members’ assessments, maintain the Council’s financial accounts and records, and pay authorized Council disbursements.

Article VI

Support work for Council members, committees or the Defense Coordination Group, such as research on proposed treaties or defense planning, shall normally be performed by staff within member governments. However, expenses of the Secretary in connection with their function shall be borne by the nations in proportion to their voting weight.

To avoid bureaucratization and centralization of power, there shall be no permanent staff for the Council, nor shall there be a permanent headquarters.

Article VII

All meeting records and other records of the Council or its committees are open to the public.

The finances of the Council shall be examined by independent auditors annually and their report shall be available to the public.

Article VIII

The quorum requirement for Council meetings is the presence of members constituting 1/3 of the weighted vote and 1⁄2 of the nations.

Article IX

The Council may establish such committees as may be deemed helpful. As with the Council, members must be represented at committee meetings by their national leader and all staff work must be performed by personnel of the member nations.

Committees may present reports to the Council, as well as, proposals for action requiring a Council vote.

Article X
Presenting Proposals

Any Council member may present a proposal to the Council for consideration as long as it receives three seconds. The President will have the discretion to set the debate time for any proposal so that all matters may receive consideration. A decision by the President to cut-off debate on an issue can be overridden by a majority vote of the Council

Article XI
Jurisdiction over Extra-Terrestrials

An ET committing a wrongful act against an individual or other legal entity under Earth national or international civil or criminal law shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the apply. If the wrongdoer committed his act on behalf or while in the service of an ET government, that ET government will be jointly liable along with the wrongdoer for any damages, as well as, subject to appropriate penalties and sanctions.

Article XII
Earth Defense Coordination Group

An Earth Defense Coordination Group shall be established for the following purposes:

1. to study the nature of possible ET military threats, to examine possible defense options and share the results of these studies with all Earth nations,

2. to conduct command exercises involving interested member nations to test command response to different threat scenarios,

3. to share national intelligence relevant to ET threats,

4. to exchange information regarding weaponry, logistics and infrastructure construction and protection that may be useful in developing a coordinated defense to an ET threat,

5. to encourage members to engage in mutual support with respect to training, equipment and infrastructure development that would be helpful in meeting an ET military threat, and

6. to coordinate a global military response to an ET threat in the event of armed conflict.

Power limitation

The Earth Defense Coordination Group is under the control of the Council and it may only act on matters of global defense from ET’s. It may not intervene in any internal disputes between member nations and it may not take any military action without Council approval.


Membership on the Earth Defense Coordination Group shall consist of two representatives, a Regional Representative and Deputy Regional Representative from each of the following Earth regions:

1. Africa

2. Asia East

3. Asia Central

4. Asia West

5. Europe

6. North America

7. South and Central America

The Regional Representatives and Deputy Regional Representatives shall be chosen from Chairs of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the region by the representatives of the nations in the region. In choosing the Representatives and Deputy Representatives substantial consideration should be given to the number of military personnel at risk in each nation in the event of armed conflict.

Command and Control in Conflict

In the event of an armed conflict with ET’s, the Earth Defense Coordination Group shall select from its members a senior commander to carry out its directives in the conflict. He will act through the Regional Representatives. The Regional Representatives will act through the Joint Chiefs in each member nation of the region who will remain subject to the civilian leaders of their respective nations.

Article XIII
Amendment of Constitution

This Constitution may be amended by a 2/3 weighted vote of the members. Any substantive amendment must be approved by the national legislatures of the members in the manner required for the approval of treaties.

Effective Date of the Council Establishment

The Earth Council shall be deemed to in effect when nations representing a majority of the potential weighted vote of all nations join.


1. Is the Earth Council a world government?

No. Its purpose is limited to representing the people of Earth in ET relations, to help plan and coordinate Earth defense and to ensure that any benefits derived from ETs are available to all people without profit. The Earth Council is specifically barred from interfering with the internal affairs of its member nations. Proposed Earth Council ConstitutionArticle I.

The Council’s guiding principle is respect for all life forms and its goal is for Earth to play a constructive role in the cosmic community. In carrying out its mission, it has an obligation to protect Earth from harm either intentional or unintentional arising from ET sources. Ibid.

2. How is it more representative?

All nations are represented in the Council by their elected leader. There is no executive committee such as the UN’s Security Council.

Each nation’s membership must be approved by its people – either through the legislature or plebiscite as they prefer. This is to ensure that the Council’s existence is based on the will of the people. Ibid, Article II.

A fundamental historical truth is that there is strength in unity. Earth will be much more effective in dealing with ETs if it speaks with a single voice that truly represents its people.

3. How is power in the Council apportioned?

Every nation gets to vote. However, in fairness, a nation with hundreds of millions of people should not have the same voting power as a country with less than one million.

The suggested vote weighting formula gives more weight to large nations than small but is not strictly proportional by population. If the vote weight were strictly proportional, the most populous nations, e.g. China and India would outweigh small countries by more than 100 to 1. The suggested weighting formula is an attempt to compromise – something like in the U.S. Constitution where small colonies were induced to joined the new federal system through equal representation in the Senate. IbidArticle VIII.

4. Is there an overall leader?

Yes, but the Council President’s power is limited to presiding at Council meetings and acting as the Council’s spokesman in ET relations. His representation must follow the Council’s direction and treaties must be approved by the Council. IbidArticle V, (1). Treaties must, also, be approved the people of the member states in accord with their respective national laws. IbidArticle III, (1).

5. Will the Council engender an expensive, inefficient bureaucracy? No. The Constitution has provisions to forestall this.

For example, the Council is to have no permanent staff. Staff work is to be performed by staff in individual nations.

Additionally, the Council has no permanent headquarters. Meetings will generally take place electronically. In person meetings, if necessary, will take place in countries that offer to host them.

Council expenses are limited to relatively small items, such those relating to tech support for meetings and the required audit of the Council’s accounts. With such modest expenses, all nations should be able to afford the small assessment proportional to its ability to pay. IbidArticles IV and VI.

6. How are the people of Earth legally protected if harmed by ETs?

Any nation or person is expressly empowered to bring a civil or criminal legal action against ETs to remedy injury or punish criminal behavior. As the Council respects national sovereignty, these actions would proceed in national courts under national and, if relevant, international law. The nation with jurisdiction over a case would be the nation where the wrongdoing occurred or, where the injured person resides. Council Constitution, Article XI.

This provision would cover injuries caused by non-consensual medical treatment such as been frequently reported by UFO abductees. ETs could not thwart Earth jurisdiction by asserting the injurious act occurred off Earth since jurisdiction can be based, not only, on the where the act occurred, but also, on the residence of the victim.

Abduction and non-consensual medical treatment of people is, not only, an injustice to the individual involved, but also, an affront to the sovereignty of Earth. It is not necessary to pass new laws to prosecute such acts as they are illegal under, both, national and international law. With respect to the latter, see, for example, Point 1 of the Nuremberg Code on medical experimentation enunciated after the post-World War II war crimes trials in Nuremberg, Germany.

7. What about defense?

Based upon past UFO activity, it does not appear that ETs have a hostile intent towards Earth. However, prudence requires that Earth be prepared for any eventuality.

Consequently, the draft Earth Council Constitution includes a Defense Coordination Group to be composed of 14 Joint Chiefs of Staff drawn from around the world. Their task is to help nations prepare for possible war with ETs and to coordinate operationally in the event war occurs. Proposed Earth Council ConstitutionArticle XII.

To ensure that the DCG is not monopolized by one superpower, the Group is composed of two representatives from each of seven regions of the Earth. These representatives are military Joint Chiefs of Staff selected by the other Chiefs within their region with due regard for those nations who will provide the largest military force in the event of war.

In accord with the Council’s respect for national sovereignty, the DCG will not exercise operational control over national militaries. However, the Group can play a crucial role in preparing for a possible ET military conflict in various ways and in coordinating national forces should such a conflict occur, including:

1. Threat assessment

Based upon UFO observations and assumptions about the military capabilities of advanced space faring races, what weaponry are ET’s likely to possess? What advanced weapons possessed by Earth might be effective against ET weaponry? How might Earth weaponry be most effectively utilized?

2. Hardening IT assets

How can Earth’s communication and other IT systems, whether civilian or military, be protected against the damaging effects of weapons such as electromagnetic pulse bombs?

3. Protecting Power Generation

What type of power source and distribution system is best designed to survive an ET attack? Should power generation and distribution be decentralized to reduce the vulnerability of communities to outages?

4. Scenarios

The DCG should prepare studies of various scenarios of ET conflicts. Among them would be a high tech conflict where the most advanced national weapons systems, especially air to ground guided missiles, would provide a coordinated response to an ET attack. Another scenario would be a lopsided conflict with a technologically superior adversary in which the Earth would have to resort to asymmetrical warfare to defend itself.

The asymmetrical warfare scenario calls for a very high degree of planning and preparation. Nations would have to anticipate decentralized warfare on a local basis in hopes that the hostile ET forces could be worn down by attrition. This approach would call for significant changes in current defense policy, such as, revising training to emphasize basic combat skills, a shifting of spending from expensive weapons systems to small arms and training, and relocating, dispersing and downsizing military bases.

5. Encourage mutual support

Earth’s greatest asset in dealing with ET’s is global unity. Division and internecine Earth conflict is the Earth’s greatest weakness.

The Council, through the DCG and otherwise, should encourage nations to help their neighbors prepare for conflict with ETs by sharing planning and training resources and maintaining a continuing dialogue on ET defense issues. Additionally, the Council’s DCG could be the point of contact in wartime for the global distribution of important strategic and tactical information. In preparing for and engaging in a conflict, everyone’s attitude toward their neighbor should be “I’ve got your six”.

“The Perils of First Contact: Aztecs and Spaniards,” By Kim MacDermotRoe

The Perils of First Contact: Aztecs and Spaniards

First Contact is a risky business. Consider the fate of the Aztecs.

In 1519, strange vessels were seen approaching the coastline of the Yucatan. Just two years later, the powerful Aztec Empire had been destroyed at the hands of a relative handful of Spanish adventurers.

Yes, an extra-terrestrial species making First Contact with the Earth may be benevolent. On the other hand, they may be like the Spanish – invaders bent on conquest. Indeed, in the purported UFO briefing of President Ronald Reagan led by CIA Director William Casey at Camp David on March 6-8, 1981, Reagan was informed that one of the several ET species known to have visited Earth was very hostile though he was denied details.

Regardless of who shows up at our door, it is possible through careful preparations, to preserve Earth’s autonomy and protect its people. Let’s look closely at the collapse of the Aztec Empire to learn how Earth can avoid a similar fate.

The Aztecs

The Aztecs, also known as the Mexica, were the last of several groups of Nahuatl speaking peoples who migrated to the Valley of Mexico from the north early in the second millennium CE. Establishing the city state of Tenochtitlan in Lake Texcoco in 1325, they became the dominant partner in a Triple Alliance with the nearby city states of Texcoco and Tlacopan.

At the time of the arrival of the Spanish, the Aztecs had conquered most of modern day central Mexico with possessions on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. The subjugated peoples were required to pay enormous tribute to the Aztecs and provide them with troops, slaves and sacrificial victims.

With the addition of levies from the tributary states, the Aztecs could field an army in the hundreds of thousands trained in both guerrilla and conventional war. The army was almost continually in combat, not only, to expand the Aztec Empire, but also, to take prisoners to be used as human sacrifices. It has been estimated that Aztec priests sacrificed at least 20,000 people a year in their religious ceremonies and would consume the flesh of the victims as part of the ritual.

The Spanish

As Spain had only emerged as a modern European nation state in the late 15th century, its empire was even younger than the Aztecs. Nonetheless, Spain was first in the New World due to its sponsorship of explorer Christopher Columbus.

Spain’s economy was based on bullionism, the belief that securing a steady supply of gold and silver guaranteed a nation’s prosperity and power. As Spain established colonies at Hispaniola, the modern Dominican Republic and Haiti, and later Cuba, mining precious metals became a top priority. It was largely the prospect of additional gold finds that attracted the Spanish to Mexico.

The Conquest

Hernando Cortes, a Spanish soldier and adventurer, who mined for gold on his own properties in Cuba, was so eager to lead the expedition to Mexico that he financed a large part of it himself – even mortgaging his property to raise funds. While Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar, the Spanish governor of Cuba, authorized Cortes only to explore the country and to establish trade relations with the natives, Cortes had more ambitious objectives in mind.

On February 10, 1519, Cortes’ fleet embarked from Cuba and made landing on Cozumel, an island off the Yucatan peninsula. His muster there showed 11 ships of varying sizes with a force of 508 including 32 cross bowmen and 13 musketeers plus a ships’ crew of about 100. Cortes, also, brought brass cannons with plenty of ball and powder and 16 horses.

Near the beginning of his expedition, Cortes acquired two translators who were to be critical assets: Geronimo de Aguilar, a Franciscan friar shipwrecked on the Yucatan in 1511 who learned Mayan while in captivity and Dona Marina, called La Malinche, a Nuahtl speaking native who, also, spoke Mayan and later learned Spanish.

Early in his expedition, Cortes learned from the natives that the gold that he sought came from the west. Later, he would learn that the precise location of the gold stores was the capital of the Aztec Empire, Tenochtitlan.

On reaching the Totonacs, a confederation of many towns in Veracruz, Cortes learned of their hatred of the Aztecs. This hatred was not due solely to the rapacious taxes, but also, to the Aztec practice of kidnapping their people, especially their young women.

While Cortes was staying with the Totonacs, five of Montezuma’s tax gatherers arrived. Cortes promptly arrested them and he informed the Totonacs chiefs that henceforth neither the Totonacs nor any of their friends were obliged to pay taxes or render obedience to the Aztecs.

Seeing the Spanish as liberators, the Totonacs formed an alliance with them and supplied Cortes with troops. In addition, the Totonacs suggested that many other native states would join Cortes in a rebellion against the Aztecs. Among them were the powerful Tlaxcala who after initial resistance became Cortes’ most important native ally and contributed large numbers of troops to his army.

When Montezuma learned of the arrival of the Spanish, it appears that he believed that Cortes was the returning Quetzalcoatl, the beneficent Aztec god. According some native traditions, Quetzalcoatl who was sometimes depicted with a beard, was banished to the East by a rival god but was expected to return.

According to native sources, Montezuma contacted his holy men for advice. However, he could find no consensus among them on how to proceed. The native historians suggest that Montezuma’s principal concern was not the security of his empire, but rather that he might be displaced by the newcomers as leader. In any event, Montezuma decided that the safest course of action was to welcome the Spanish with great deference.

To ensure the good will of the newcomers, Montezuma sent them offerings of gifts and human sacrifices. Unfortunately, the gifts which included intricate gold work merely confirmed that Montezuma’s gold treasures were the targets. And the human sacrifices performed by the Aztec emissaries in front of the Spanish repelled even the brutal conquistadores.

Indecisive and anxious, Montezuma made no defensive preparations prior to Cortes’ arrived at Tenochtitlan. He greeted the Spanish who were accompanied by their many native allies with great respect and offered them accommodations in a royal palace. Although Cortes showed great respect for Montezuma at first, the Spanish wasted no time in investigating the location of Montezuma’s hoard of gold and jewels.

While Montezuma was entertaining the Spanish in Tenochtitlan, some of his captains attacked the Spanish garrison Cortes had left behind at Villa Rica killing six Spanish soldiers. Although Montezuma may not have ordered the attack, Cortes seized Montezuma and put him temporarily in shackles. He compelled Montezuma to order the captains to return to the capital where Cortes tried them and had them executed by burning in front of Montezuma’s palace.

Although Montezuma had clearly lost control of the government, he clung to the delusion that somehow he could placate Cortes. He showered the Spanish with gifts of gold and jewels and he even offered to give one of his daughters to Cortes as a wife. However, Montezuma’s relatives understood that their leader was now powerless and began intriguing against him.

Unfortunately, Cortes had to leave Tenochtitlan temporarily to deal with a Spanish force sent by the Governor of Cuba to discipline Cortes for exceeding his remit. While Cortes was away, Cortes’ lieutenant, Pedro de Alvarado, slaughtered a large number of unarmed natives during a major religious festival on the mistaken belief an Aztec attack was imminent. Not surprisingly, this provoked a native uprising driving the Spanish from the city with heavy losses.

Cortes and his army retreated to Tlaxcala where they built a small fleet of ships. When the Spanish laid siege to the Aztecs in 1521, they launched the ships mounted with cannon on Lake Texcoco. This naval artillery enabled the Spanish to control the causeways connecting Tenochtitlan to its allies and to deprive the population of food. As Spanish cannons shattered their defenses, the Aztecs, weakened by a small pox epidemic and hunger, fought in vain.

In the aftermath, the mighty Aztec Empire was extinct and Cortes was in possession of unbelievable wealth. And the city states of the former Aztec Empire now vied for favor from their new masters, the Spanish.

So what lessons can Earth draw from this First Contact disaster?

1. Avoid wishful thinking. Consider the possibility that ETs might have plunder in mind.

2. Unity is critical. Only if Earth’s nations unite on the basis of mutual respect can they effectively secure Earth’s autonomy.

3. The U.S. President should have access to all intelligence regarding ETs so that he can organize a coherent response to any threat.

4. Earth nations should end destructive behavior, such as internecine war and environmental despoliation, which invites a morally justified intervention by an ET species.

5. Earth should take precautions to avoid contracting communicable diseases from ETs arriving on Earth.

6. All nations should cooperate in preparing for all possible defense scenarios. If a conventional war is not winnable, Earth should be prepared to fight an asymmetrical war and protect critical infrastructure.

In all this, it is essential to maintain a clear vision that one prepares for the worst First Contact scenario not out of a desire for conflict, but out of a desire to avoid it. The objective of ET First Contact policy is to preserve Earth’s autonomy, protect its people and establish peaceful and mutually beneficial relations with other space faring species.

“Unconquerable Earth: Defeating Hostile ETs,” By Kim MacDermotRoe

Unconquerable Earth

Defeating Hostile ETs


As Earth enters into the spacefaring community, no responsibility is more important than protecting Earth’s autonomy and the personal liberty of its people. While it is hoped that most ET species will be friendly, one must consider that some may be hostile. Numerous reported abductions of our people by ETs suggest that this possibility is not remote.

It is prudent to assume that any hostile ET force capable of reaching Earth from a distant star system possesses technology and weaponry superior to Earth’s. Given that the ET forces might defeat Earth’s most advanced space weapons, Earth should, also, prepare to defend on a lower tech level, i.e., asymmetrical warfare.

In asymmetrical warfare, a weaker military power uses creative strategy and tactics to eventually wear down and defeat a superior military. Below, we review two important examples of effective asymmetrical warfare campaigns from modern Earth history to learn what military reforms would help us prevail in such a conflict.

The Boer War 1899-1902


Boers, Dutch settlers, colonized southern Africa in the 1600’s. While the British later took over the Boer territories in the southernmost part of the region, the Cape of Good Hope and the Natal, the Boers established two republics, the Orange Free State and the Transvaal, further north. With the discovery of gold and diamonds in the Boer republics in the late 19th century, British commercial interests sought the support of the British military to invade them.

The Conflict

To resist the British, the Boers, primarily farmers, organized an army composed of irregulars. Although outnumbered and outgunned, the Boers stunned the British with initial successes at pitched battles at Stormberg, Magersfontein and Colenso. However, the British responded by increasing their forces to over 500,000 including auxiliaries. 

As the Boer forces did not exceed 10,000 in any of the three battles, it was clear they had no chance of winning in a direct confrontation. Recognizing this limitation, the Boers allowed the British to capture the Orange Free State’s capitol unopposed and initiated a guerrilla war.

Although the Boers were not professional soldiers, they had the benefit of a 200 year old commando tradition. In this decentralized fighting force, each commando unit composed of local volunteers was assigned to a town under a local commandant. The surrounding area was divided into wards under cornets with a further subdivision to units of about 20 soldiers. 

Armed primarily with modern bolt action German Mausers and mounted on horseback, small highly mobile Boer commando units launched effective surprise attacks on the British. Afterward, the Boer soldiers attired in civilian clothes would disappear into the countryside where they could count on supplies of horses and food from local homesteads.

The most formidable Boer guerilla leader was Christiaan de Wet. Although lacking any professional military training, de Wet had some combat experience as a cornet in an earlier conflict, the Anglo-Boer War of 1880-1881. 

De Wet was an ordinary burgher when he joined the Boer commandoes in September 1899 without rank. However, in six months he rose to become commander of the Orange Free State forces. Using classic guerilla hit and run tactics, de Wet and his men annihilated isolated British outposts. De Wet won notable victories at Sanna’s Post and Reddersburg in early 1900 and evaded strenuous British pursuit throughout the war.

Although foreign countries fearing the British Empire refused to openly side with the Boers, there was widespread sympathy for the Boer cause among ordinary citizens throughout Europe. Over 5,000 Boer supporters from diverse nations including the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Russia and Ireland volunteered to join the Boer’s guerilla army. 

As their losses mounted, the British became increasingly frustrated in their failed attempts to grapple with their elusive enemy. Eventually, the desperate British resorted to partitions of the country and civilian concentration camps to break the Boer resistance. However, the suffering and death of Boer civilians stiffened Boer hatred of the British and fueled anti-war sentiment in Britain.

Eventually, the British saw no choice but to agree to a truce. Although the Boers surrendered, it was a pyrrhic victory for the British. Just a few years after the war, the British government had to agree to the establishment of an independent Union of South Africa in which the Boers had majority control.

Irish War of Independence (1919-1921)


Although the British invaded Ireland in the 12th century, it was not until the 17th and 18thcenturies that the British consolidated control through military occupation accompanied by the suppression of Irish civil rights, culture, religion and the confiscation of property. An unsuccessful Irish rebellion against the British in 1798 was followed by a century of unrest culminating in a new nationalist movement.

In 1916 Irish nationalists staged another rebellion known as the Easter Rising. Though the Rising was unsuccessful due to poor coordination and weak public support, the nationalists briefly held important public buildings in Dublin including the General Post Office where they proclaimed an Irish Republic. The British unwittingly promoted sympathy for the nationalists when they summarily executed the Irish leaders by firing squad at Kilmainham Jail in Dublin.

The Conflict

Soon after the Rising, Michael Collins, a young nationalist leader who narrowly avoided execution, emerged as the key leader in a renewed rebellion. In 1917, Collins, who like de Wet had no professional military training, was appointed Director of Organization for the Irish Volunteers, a nationalist militia organization which evolved into the Irish Republican Army. When Irish members of the British Parliament formed an independent Irish government, Collins was appointed Finance Minister, as well as, Director of Intelligence.

Like the Boer leaders, Collins recognized that a conventional war against the British regulars and their brutal auxiliaries could not be won. Organizing the Irish Republican Army into regional units under local commanders, Collins oversaw a guerrilla campaign against the British occupation characterized by “flying columns”.

Operating as small, mobile, locally based units, the Irish flying columns launched surprise attacks on British Army barracks and the Royal Irish Constabulary, a quasi-military British occupation force. Other IRA members aided the columns with scouting information, security, and supplies.

The success of the IRA raids forced the British to abandon many of their small outposts and retreat to large towns. As a result, much of the countryside came under the control and protection of the new Irish Republic.

Additionally, as Director of Intelligence, Collins created a web of nationalist spies in the offices of the British government in Dublin. These assets provided crucial information about British plans that Collins could share with the IRA’s regional commanders.

Among the most notable and controversial of Collins’ war methods was the establishment of the “Squad”, nicknamed the “Twelve Apostles”, whose aim was to cripple the British intelligence apparatus by assassinating its agents. In its largest attack, the Squad killed fourteen British MI5 officers linked to the “Cairo Gang”, a deep-cover British intelligence group.

In June 1921, the British commander in Ireland advised his government that only the imposition of martial law could defeat the rebels. Significantly, this was rejected by the British leaders due to Irish American support for the Irish nationalists. With no options left, the British sought a truce and entered into negotiations which eventually led to Irish independence.

Logistical Considerations

Both, the Boer and Irish conflicts suggest that in preparation for a possible asymmetrical war, attention should be given, not only, to training, tactics and weaponry, but also, to logistics such as, communications and transportation. 

While efforts should be made to harden electronics, communications satellites may be destroyed or disrupted. Thus, it may be necessary to rely on low tech alternatives such as short wave radio. Essential information such as maps and maintenance manuals should be downloaded to users’ computers and distributed in hard copy. 

Civilians should be able to communicate as much as possible with each other and with authorities to maintain social and political cohesion. As Mao showed in his classic work, On Guerilla Warfare, the military effort cannot be isolated from public support. And this support should be earned by involving ordinary citizens at all levels in the resistance campaign.

As to transportation, Earth’s plentiful supply of civilian vehicles could be adapted for use by soldiers. In this regard, battery powered vehicles with minimum reliance on expensive, difficult to repair electronics would be most practical.

With respect to basic weapons in asymmetrical warfare, simplicity and durability are paramount. For example, a rifle like the AK 47, durable, powerful and easy to operate and maintain, would be more useful in guerrilla operations than the complicated American M16 or its shortened version the M4 carbine. 


Based upon the above, important changes in Earth military policy, such as the following, would help Earth defend itself in an asymmetrical war with technologically superior extraterrestrials.

     1. Bring overseas military home to focus on territorial defense.
     2. Emphasize training on basic soldier skills for all soldiers.
     3. Restore locally based active duty regiments. 
     4. Expand locally based reserve units.
     5. Relocate military bases to defensible areas of military importance.
     6. Prepare new operation/training plans for small autonomous units. 
     7. Introduce durable, uncomplicated weapons.
     8. Harden communications and develop low tech alternatives.
     9. Decentralize energy generation.
   10. Encourage local farming to ensure adequate food supplies.

The above changes, including an end to foreign wars, represent a fundamental shift in military policy for the United States and certain other developed nations. However, Earth’s anticipated entry into the spacefaring community is a development of such magnitude that it calls for new ways of thinking. As President Ronald Reagan said in his September 21, 1987 speech to the United Nations General Assembly: 

In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites the members of humanity. …  I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.
