How do you feel about your intelligence? Do you think you are smart? Or do you believe that though you’ll never master the Calculus you are the possessor of lots of common sense, which in the end may be much more valuable? Or perhaps you believe that had some failed subject been properly taught to you, you would now be the master of it. It is my observation that most people believe that they are clever in some ways that matter most. I guess in general that is a good thing especially for self esteem and thus, well-being.

Howard Gardener, a American developmental psychologist, identified eight distinct kinds of intelligence in the 1980s. A friend of mine is always remarking about some other person’s lack of emotional intelligence, believing himself to be the master of emotional intelligence (he is not). I suspect that there is something valuable to be learned from this theory of multiple intelligences. One can certainly take pride in one’s specific brand of intelligence.

But have you ever met someone who was so much smarter than you that it was staggering?

That may be what would happen if you ever encountered an extraterrestrial or inter-dimensional being. By extraterrestrial I mean a being that has traveled from somewhere in the cosmos to visit Earth, not a slime mold (or the like) that is discovered by the Mars Rover to exist in a cave on Mars (though perhaps the said slime mold is all super brain and is controlling us remotely [just kidding, I think]). These beings might have other types of intelligence or skills that are either unimaginable or uncommon in humans. Telepathy may be the rule with some of these beings rather than the exception, shape shifting might be an everyday occurrence rather than the stuff of fables. They may extract our spirits from our bodies, causing an out of body experience (OOBE), by using our natural physiological state of sleep paralysis.

(Please note in this piece the careful use of “may” rather than “is”. I am hypothesizing here, exploring the possibilities.)

The question here is what effect would the vastly superior intelligence have on human culture? We are speaking here of a greater, more multifaceted intelligence, not simply of a technological superiority.

Look what can happen when a less technological advanced human society meets a more technologically advanced human society: cargo cults (One would be well advised to read this article about cargo cults in the South Pacific to see what astonishingly untrue conclusions the human mind can come to due to exposure to simply more technologically advanced humans). Thusly I conclude that everything humans theorize about ETs and interdimensionals may be stunningly offbase including everything I’ve written in this blog piece. 🙂

Researchers looking for evidence that ETs visited the Earth in the historical past point to stories of Gods, Goddesses, Angels and the Elohim as possible visitations by ETs or interdimensionals. That may be, but as of now I can think of no conclusive way to prove these ideas with any certainty, so they remain the stuff of conjecture. Speaking of which, my small mind cannot think of any reason that Angels, for instance, could not be defined as interdimensional beings in or outside of religion.

Do we create, that is manifest these beings with our collective consciousness (or subconscious group mind) or do these beings manifest us with their super minds? Or is there any difference between the two, if in fact we are all One?

Update: 07/08/10 Synchronisticly on the same day I published this post, another article Communicating With The Universe

was published about blasting the contents of the internet into space. NASA apparently is not taking seriously Stephen Hawking’s admonition about the inadvisability of advertising Earth culture to aliens (lest we become slaves or luncheon meat).

Whitley Strieber has an interesting take on the subject of alien intelligence:

Update: 01/29/13 Science, specifically the relatively new science of exobiology, has been taking the idea of alien intelligence more seriously. See: Inside the Extraterrestrial Mind

Fahrusha is an amateur cosmologist and a professional intuitive who has pondered the probability of ETs since early childhood.

When you See Those Flying Saucers (song above)

performed by: Buchanan Brothers and the Georgia Catamounts, 1947 (from Victor 78)

(Cy Coben-Charlie Grean)

You better pray to the Lord when you see those flying saucers,
It may be the coming of the Judgement Day!
It’s a sign there’s no doubt
Of the trouble that’s about
So I say my friends, you’d better start to pray.
There are a terrifying sight as they ?  day and night
It’s a warning that we’d better mend our way
You better pray to the Lord when you see those flying saucers.
It may be the coming of the Judgement Day!


Many people think the saucers might be someone’s foolish dreams
Or maybe they were sent down here from Mars.
If you just stop and think you’d realize just what it means
They’re more than atom bombs or falling stars.
And though the war may be through
There’s unrest and trouble brewing and those flying saucers may be just a sign.
That if peace doesn’t come it will be the end of some
So repent today you’re running out of time.
When you see a saucer fly like a comet through the sky
You should realize the price you’ll have to pay
You better pray to the Lord when you see those flying saucers
It may be the coming of the Judgement Day!
