“That our planet is the one and only planet where life has emerged would be a ridiculous assumption… Even if only one in a hundred of the ten billion suitable planets has actually got life well under way, there would be more than 100 million such planets. No, it is presumptuous to think that we are alone.”
– HARLOW SHAPLEY (1885-1972) American astronomer
fter the people of Greece held their historic referendum and voted “No” to increased austerity measures, many around the world are thinking about what the vote means for not only Greece but for humanity. What was particularly remarkable about the “No” vote, 61% to 39% “Yes”, was that the people of Greece overcame a relentless corporate media campaign meant to instill fear and convince them to vote “yes”, and in so doing provided an amazing example of solidarity-based courage for the rest of humanity.
The referendum in Greece is one illustration among an increasing number of events and situations around the Earth in recent years pointing to positive change or evolution. Some would disagree with the interpretation that humanity is going through rapid change and intensification of evolutionary, beneficial movement. So, those who see what is fundamentally a spiritual evolution occurring before their eyes stand amazed, while those who see the same-old, same-old find little to get excited about. However one analyzes current world events, citizens of Greece taking a stand against historic economic and financial exploitation by small groups of wealthy elites is something that is extraordinary.
The aspect of the Greek referendum which could rightly be described as awe-inspiring is the fact that future Earthly events resulting from the vote may in a relatively short time bring about actions creating a better, more just and fair world which many were firmly convinced “won’t happen in our lifetimes”. The situation in Greece and the government’s dramatic negotiations over the last months with the so-called Troika have gained/attracted the attention of millions of men and women from all corners of the planet, and in effect has resulted in perhaps the greatest collective education and revealing of how international finance works the world has ever seen.
The extent to which men and women across the Earth have gained awareness and knowledge of economics and finance is huge and unprecedented. Because of that increased awareness, produced with a combination of high interest (pun not intended) and an avalanche of analytical reporting, the belief by people that other economic/banking models besides the “status-quo” are both possible and ready for implementation – plus more fundamentally just and beneficial – has grown in large measure. And as that belief generated by awareness and knowledge grows, so too does the will and intent to universalize good changes.
Most of the Earth’s people wish for the most fair, decent and just economic/financial models available to become implemented. That wish stems from a universally inherent, present-from-birth human quality of compassion for one’s fellow men, women and children, suffering through economic downturn, financial stress, wars and violence, and other less than ideal life situations.
From Daniel Sheehan’s perspective, that compassion is one part of the emergent, evolutionary next step for our human family.
Beyond sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch, humanity is on the brink of discovering, developing and experiencing a 6th faculty, profoundly evolutionary in its essential nature. This 6th faculty in basic terms is the ability to sense/perceive the creation as one unified field where everything is interconnected, and including an automatic knowing of whether actions are in harmony with, or disharmonious to, the universe. Furthermore, science will join with spirituality upon the realization/understanding that human intentions are responsible for manifesting material reality.
Daniel Sheehan is a Harvard Law and Divinity School graduate, and was an attorney working on some of America’s most important legal cases – including the Watergate break-in which led to Richard Nixon’s resignation, the Pentagon Papers leading to a swifter end to the Vietnam War, Iran-Contra during the Reagan-Bush administration, Karen Silkwood’s murder case related to nuclear scandal, journalists’ right to protect confidential sources, and many more. More recently, Mr. Sheehan, in response to unconstitutional provisions of NDAA legislation, has advocated for establishment of “Constitutional Defense Zones” in cities, counties and states across the United States to protect citizens’ constitutional rights.
When Jimmy Carter won the 1976 presidential election, Carter asked then CIA Director (under Gerald Ford) George H.W. Bush for all the information he had on extraterrestrial life and UFOs. Jimmy Carter had admitted to seeing a UFO while Governor of Georgia. Bush told President-elect Carter that he’d accommodate his wish, only if Carter kept Bush on as CIA Director. Carter had someone else in mind, and Bush declined to produce the requested information.
Daniel Sheehan’s legal reputation led to him being asked to contribute to/join Carter’s effort, he accepted, then he was eventually granted, to his surprise, permission to look at and investigate the government’s classified UFO/extraterrestrial information contained in “Project Blue Book”. He entered a room where the materials were on a table, and he describes finding 1950’s photographs of a crashed UFO where Air Force personnel were investigating the crash site. Since then Daniel Sheehan has become more deeply involved in the extraterrestrial issue, to the point of regularly speaking at conferences like the one in the video below from a few months ago.
Scientists estimate that our Milky Way galaxy alone contains 500 million star systems. Scientists estimate around 500 billions of galaxies in the universe, and that each of those 500 billion galaxies contain up to 500 million star systems.
After viewing many of his talks, including 17 nearly 2-hour lectures to students as Professor of World Politics at University of California-Santa Cruz, Mr. Sheehan’s knowledge of history, political events, extraterrestrial/UFO research, and spirituality is absolutely outstanding. Any man or woman interested in learning a large number of often disturbing, often inspiring, little-known facts and revelations about important historical events and conditions will find it difficult to find a better source than Daniel Sheehan. He is one of the world’s most profound thinkers and immensely articulate.
