The Ethics of Contact

by Marshall Vian Summers

Humanity now stands at the threshold of space. Craft of unknown origin have been sighted flying unimpeded in our skies with ever greater frequency since the end of World War II. Contact has begun, but it is Contact that is happening behind the scenes. Governments are keeping their secrets while the public remains unaware and unprepared.

Now for the first time, we have been sent a preparation and a revelation about the reality and spirituality of the Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe. This preparation addresses the unprecedented challenges facing humanity and the great opportunity for human unity and cooperation that meeting such challenges will require.

The preparation comes from two distinct sources: the first in the form of four sets of Briefings from a network of free nations in our local universe who call themselves the Allies of Humanity. The Allies are not visiting our world, but have sent observers in secret to observe the extraterrestrial Intervention that is occurring in our world. The four sets of Briefings present the Allies’ report to humanity.

The second origin of this preparation is a vast series of prophetic teachings in a New Message for Humanity, provided by the Creator of all life. Contained within this New Message is the knowledge and wisdom that humanity will need to avoid environmental disaster and the growing risk of human conflict, to establish human unity and to prepare for the complexity of living within the Greater Community.

Both of these sources, the Allies of Humanity and the New Message, reveal the real nature of the extraterrestrial presence in the world today and what humanity must know and do to prepare for what surely is the greatest event in human history.

The Allies Briefings show how the Intervention is taking place in our world and how it is seeking to achieve its goals here. Acting in a clandestine and surreptitious manner, the Intervention is engaged in a coordinated set of activities to influence human perception and to take advantage of human ignorance, conflict and superstition to gain dominance in our world without the use of force.

The Allies Briefings encourage us at every turn to take an active role in discerning and opposing this extraterrestrial Intervention. The Briefings emphasize that humanity does not yet possess the resident wisdom, unity or discernment to safely engage in meaningful Contact and that those races who could be beneficial to us in the future do not seek engagement here for this reason.

The Briefings emphasize that, almost without exception, the first races to visit the shores of emerging worlds such as our own represent resource explorers and economic collectives—opportunistic groups that seek to gain access to the resources of emerging worlds, groups that are not held in high esteem amongst advanced nations in our region of space.

This Intervention it taking place at a time of growing human conflict, resource depletion and environmental change in the world. The Briefings reveal why this is taking place at this time and why humanity is in such a vulnerable position. The Intervention will present itself as powerful and enlightened organizations who are capable of saving the human family. Yet it is all a deception to an unknowing and unsuspecting humanity.

The great need before us is to prepare for the Greater Community practically, politically and spiritually. This includes informing the peoples of the world of humanity’s vulnerability in the face of the Intervention, discerning our rights and priorities as the native peoples of this world and establishing our own Ethics of Contact and Rules of Engagement concerning all present and future encounters with other races in the universe.

Looking at the natural world and back through human history amply demonstrates to us the lessons of intervention. Nature teaches us that competition for resources is an integral part of nature. History teaches us that intervention by one culture upon another is always carried out for self-interest and has an overriding and often devastating impact upon the culture and freedom of the people being discovered.

While it is conceivable that those extraterrestrial races visiting our world may be an exception to this rule, such an exception would have to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by giving humanity the right to assess any proposal for visitation and to determine the Rules of Engagement. This has certainly not occurred. Instead, in humanity’s experience of Contact so far, we have had our authority and proprietary rights as the native people of this world circumvented. The “visitors” have pursued their own agenda, without regard for humanity’s approval or informed participation. The world is being infiltrated, and the growing numbers of people who have been influenced and taken by the Intervention are being persuaded that this infiltration is for humanity’s own good.

As both the Allies Briefings and much of the UFO research clearly indicate, ethical contact is not occurring. The following are only a few of the key ethical issues regarding the extraterrestrial Contact as it is occurring today:

– visitation and occupation without informed consent by citizens of this world instead of by secret government groups or other organizations

– non-disclosure of intentions and fostering secrecy and deception as opposed to openness, trust and negotiation

– breeching planetary and national boundaries with impunity

– displays of technological power over cities and military installations risking national security

– fostering human dependency through offers of technology to a less advanced and less developed native race

– violations of basic human rights in abducting people against their will and subjecting them to often terrifying procedures, resulting in psychological trauma and social isolation

– exploitation of resources, both human and biological

– behind the scenes exacerbation of human conflict

While it may be appropriate for a foreign race to share with us their experience and wisdom from afar, as the Allies Briefings have done, it is not appropriate for races to come here uninvited and attempt to interfere in and manipulate human affairs, even under the guise of helping us. Given the level of humanity’s development at this time as a young and divided race, no true ally of humanity would attempt this, for it would require them to direct, control and manipulate the minds and hearts of people.

Humanity has not had the opportunity to establish its own Rules of Engagement or set the boundaries that every native race must establish for its own safety, security, and sovereignty in the universe. Doing so would foster human unity and cooperation because our nations and peoples would have to work together to accomplish such a task. This action would require the awareness that we are one people sharing one world, that we are not alone in the universe and that our boundaries to space must be established and protected. This emphasis on planetary security over national security would be an evolutionary step for humanity. Tragically, this necessary developmental process is now being circumvented and the world’s peoples remain unaware and unprepared.

The Allies’ message to humanity is a demonstration of what ethical Contact really is. They are maintaining a hands-off approach, respecting our sovereignty, our native abilities and our authority while encouraging the unity and Greater Community preparation that the human family is going to need in order to establish itself as a free race amidst a vast and complex interaction between nations and worlds within the Greater Community—an environment to which we are unaware and have not yet adapted.

While many people doubt that humanity has the power and integrity to meet its own needs and challenges today and in the future, the Allies assure us that we do have this power—the spiritual power of Knowledge and the power of human ingenuity—which resides within all of us and that we must now use on our own behalf, especially in the face of competition from beyond the world. No one in the universe is going to come and save us, and those races who claim to be here for this purpose represent our greatest threat.

The preparation for humanity’s emergence into the Greater Community has been given. The four sets of the Allies of Humanity Briefings and the sacred texts of the New Message are available to readers everywhere. They can be viewed here at and Many of the writings and recordings are now available free online. Together they provide the means for offsetting the Intervention, bringing an end to human conflict and preparing nations and peoples of this world to face a changing world as we stand at the threshold of space. This is the only such preparation in the world today and represents a new way forward for humanity.

In response to the Allies Briefings, a group of dedicated readers have crafted a document entitled the Declaration of Human Sovereignty. Modeled on the United States’ Declaration of Independence, the Declaration of Human Sovereignty sets out to establish the Ethics of Contact and the Rules of Engagement that we, as the native peoples of the world, now desperately need in order to foster human unity and to preserve human freedom and sovereignty.

As the indigenous people of this world, we have the right and responsibility to determine when and how visitation will occur and who may enter our world. We must let it be known to all nations and groups in the universe who are aware of our existence that we are a self-determined race and that we intend to exercise our rights and responsibilities as an emerging race of free people in the Greater Community. The Declaration of Human Sovereignty is a beginning step and can be read online at
