"We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent upon its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate, half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew can travel safely with such vast contradictions. On their resolution depends the survival of us all."

"Man...has become the tyrant of the Earth, the waster of its resources, the creator of the most prodigious imbalance in the natural order which has ever existed…" 
Joseph Wood Krutch, The Voice of the Desert
"Are the worlds of more advanced civilizations totally geometrized, entirely rebuilt by their inhabitants? Or would the signature of a really advanced civilization be that they left no sign at all?"
Carl Sagan, Contact
A vast technological paradox characterizes the current global scenario of humanity and the Earth. Printing and computer networks enable us to share ideas and information across expanses of time and space; through the summation of myriad military-industrial complexities and personal 'convenience'...nuclear reactors, HAARP, naval sonar, seismic testing, genetic engineering, mining, bull-dozers, automobiles, 'smart' phones, television...we are waging a largely invisible but diabolically full-spectrum war on Mother Earth, on ourselves, on life as we know her. A much more fundamental technology exists, however, that makes all this possible. By means of the 'ultimate technology'...our brains, minds and bodies...we are able to live, think, perceive, communicate, create...and destroy at escalating levels of efficiency.Revisualizing technology in the service of renavigation of the human process is our most urgent necessity.
Technology as traditionally understood refers to machines and devices, apparati external to us, what astronomer Carl Sagan terms 'extra-somatic artefacts.' The ancient Greek word techne, however, has to do with making or doing; in a true etymological sense technology is anything that enables or allows us to make or to do. Our bodies as a whole, and those of all organisms, the astronomically complex and synergetically inter-dependent living systems comprising each of us are living bio-technologies, exquisite expressions of Gaian fecundity.
The current global scenario is anomalous: the modern 'technological revolution' has appeared only over the last 200 years or so, although homo sapiens, 'man, the wise' is believed to have existed for at least a million. Our biological hardware has remained constant but our bio-psychological software, our 'internal technology', has under-gone massive transformation; 'self-mutation' may be more accurate than 'evolution.'
Indigenous peoples including cetaceans not only survived but thrived with minimal or non-existent external technologies. Since the dawn of 'civilization', literally, 'living in cities', however, indigenous beings and the Earth herself have become targets for enslavement, extraction, and extermination; since 'civilized' man began to 'dig precious things from the land' in direct violation of indigenous wisdom, we have not only invited disaster, but done our utmost to create it. For the last 5000 years, 'civilization' and 'technology' have metastasized synergetically and exponentially to bring us to the brink of trans-humanized ecocide where we find ourselves today.
Chief Seattle observed that 'What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves.' Today, our most highly advanced forms of 'technology' are weapons systems whose purposes are imperialism and genocide, in fulfilment of the massive karmic back-lash we have accumulated, given a non-anthropocentric frame of reference in which all life is meaningful and sacred...the essence of indigenous wisdom we have chronically ignored. 'Civilization' glorifies 'progress' but human technological activity is clearly the primary threat to life as we know her, representing what may well be the Earth's first planetary catastrophe of terrestrial origin.1
In our age of materialism we have chosen to focus on matter instead of mind, on external rather than internal realities and technologies. Our 'ultimate technology' is on collective auto-pilot, as we sink ever more deeply into unconsciousness while the mega-machine rages on, seemingly with a mind of its own.
Awareness of internal technologies includes ancient concepts like chakrasmandalas, meditation and yoga, but Dr. John C. Lilly's concept of the human bio-computer is a contemporary model of strategic significance whose goal is to help us become 'self-metaprogramming.' The hard- and soft-ware of the bio-computer, corresponding to brain and mind, are the guidance systems of living bio-technology. How we choose to use our brains and minds is the crucial singularity of here and now.2
The explosive proliferation of increasingly lethal material technologies defies description; the military is at least 50 years ahead of what the scientifically ignorant and socially engineered public is aware of. Unrestrained geo-engineering, the 'planet Earth as target and weapon' scenario, the technogeneous presence itself, the pervasiveness of toxicity and resource extraction, the global decimation of cetaceans, the 'trans-human' movement are creating a 'techno-Koyaanisqatsi' syndrome our planet can no longer sustain.3
Without digital computers, a mega-machine of this scale would be impossible; yet these external technologies are merely primitive projections of our brains and minds. Computare in Latin means 'to think or reflect upon' and kybernetes in Greek means 'pilot or navigator, as of a ship': WE are truly cybernetic computers, living bio-technologies who can self-metaprogram and self-navigate entirely new dMOE's, 'distributed mental operating environments', new ways of thinking, being, relating, living.4
Our challenge is to regain our brains from the 'shrewd methods of psychic influence', the dark arts of self-inflicted mind-control, wake up, consent to re-engineer ourselves, and bring our 'secret weapon', our realization that we ARE the ultimate technology, on-line and into consciousness. By means of a 'Manhattan Project of the mind' at the individual level, a thorough revisualization of technology towards the within, and a return to consciousness and primacy of spirit, we can become co-creators of realities that reflect our true beautiful nature as human beings who love life.5
Beyond the knowledge that we are no longer wilfully or unconsciously particating in the destruction of life, lies the joy of infinite creativity. Despite our chronic delusion, we have never been alone on Mothership Earth. Mitakuye oyasin have been waiting for us to wake up. The cetaceans, a true 'extra-terrestrial intelligence', have an 'ultimate technology' even more advanced than ours. They have much to share concerning higher octaves of thought, the secrets of water-based life, pod-mind and telepathy, what it means to be truly 'human.' 6
'Contact' will have happened when we as a whole realize that WE...our family of life on Mother Earth...are the miracle we've been searching for. 7

4) 'Resolving the Paradox of Incoherency' Jeff Phillips In this article I develop my concept of the dMOE or 'distributed mental operating environmen' and contrast the dominant W.A.S.I.C.H.U. versus P.O.O.H. dMOE's.

"We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent upon its vulnerable reserves of air and soil, all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft. We cannot maintain it half fortunate, half miserable, half confident, half despairing, half slave to the ancient enemies of man, half free in a liberation of resources undreamed of until this day. No craft, no crew can travel safely with such vast contradictions. On their resolution depends the survival of us all."

"The scientist of today is distressed by the fact that the results of his scientific work have created a threat to mankind since they have fallen into the hands of morally blind exponents of political power. He is conscious of the fact that technological methods, made possible by his work, have led to a concentration of economic and also of political power in the hands of small minorities which have come to dominate completely the lives of the masses of people, who appear more and more amorphous. But even worse: the concentration of economic and political power has not only made the man of science dependent economically, it also threatens his independence from within; the shrewd methods of intellectual and psychic influences which it brings to bear will prevent the development of independent personalities."
Albert Einstein, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 1952
"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the state."

Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels, Ministry of Enlightenment, Third Reich

6) "We are not alone: How we are waging war on a true 'extra-terrestrial intelligence' " Jeff Phillips

"I think that the cetaceans are using their highly advanced ‘internal technologies’ of group-telepathy and holographic consciousness-transmission to beam their love and message into the human psyche, now more than ever...Within their collective psyche they may have memories and knowledge of the history of Earth and humanity that we are unable and/or unwilling to access. They may have knowledge of life elsewhere in the universe...of telepathically-connected galactic communities...and a greater appreciation of the beauty and uniqueness of life on THIS planet. Perhaps they are the ‘mind of Gaia’ herself."

7) "Maybe the next level from which our problems can be solved is simply a matter of a quantum leap in our psychological world-view: to consider that we may actually be the 'ultimate technology' with innate abilites to creatively and harmoniously re-program what we think of as 'reality' and how we relate to ourselves, our fellow beings, our planet.

This is what I always wanted to tell Carl Sagan and the other SETI radio-astronomers…that I thought they were looking in the wrong place for 'extra-terrestrial' intelligence…that it’s actually embedded in the nature of life itself, in our dna, our cells, our brains and minds; in trees, in rocks, in the whales and dolphins, in water, in the Earth, the stars, the galaxies, the entire omniverse. In us.

Is this realization what we are really afraid of, what we are in denial of, what we are running from…what we refuse to acknowledge, to remember? Could it be that even more terrifying to us than ancient memories of cosmic catastrophe is the awareness that we ourselves actually ARE the 'extra-terrestrial intelligence' we have long sought? That we are not a 'fallen' race of world-eating vermin…all that was just a really bad dream…but actually ARE higher-dimensional divine beings who are coming out of hibernation…waking up to the opportunity and responsibility, the excitement and wonder of being here and now, on the threshold of a new age…of our own creation?"
