ET badguys on the prowl,

This review is from: The Allies of Humanity: An Urgent Message About the Extraterrestrial Presence in the World Today (Paperback)Marshall Summers is a spiritual teacher who channels material from the "Unseen Ones" and in this case from a committee called "The Allies of Humanity." The committee is made up of members from planets that have succumbed to intervention in the past and had a very long and hard struggle to recover their autonomy. Fans of channeling know that there are thousands of channelers and that many of them offer pretty lean pickings. Not so here. Marshall has helped put out several impressive books, tapes and even a video. To be honest, I picked this one to start with because it was the thinnest, it passes the taste test. The book is roughly divided into two parts, the main message and questions about the main message. The main message is that extraterrestrials are here (not so new) and that they are up to no good, but not in ways that you hear much about in print. The message section is a bit repetitive (it really does need to sink in), The gist of the message is that the visitations we are experiencing now (called the "Intervention") are from a hive-minded entrepreneurial collective which would dearly love some more worker bees (us) but who are far too few to want to engage in what we think of as conventional warfare. Their stock in trade is psychological warfare of the mind manipulation sort carried on patiently over time and directed specifically at political and religious leaders to slowly alter values taught by the churches. This program operates in conjunction with a breeding program that will interject bright new leaders into our society (yes, they are living in our midst right now) and a pacification (acclimatization) program. We are told that personal freedom will be the first fatality if they succeed. "Such is the greater reality into which humanity is emerging--a universe filled with wonders and horrors, a universe of influence, a universe of competition, yet also a universe filled with Grace, much like your own world but infinitely greater. The Heaven that you seek is not here. However, the forces that you must contend with are. This is the greatest threshold that your race will ever face." "They come seeking power, resources, dominion." Well there you have it delivered in low key, almost boring, presentation. The writing is patient, very literate and more or less free of the panic style writing seen elsewhere (like Extra-Terrestrial Friends and Foes by George C. Andrews, which is a good complement to this work). The visitors are not really portrayed as evil, personal freedom is just out of their hive element and is seen as a very undesirable human trait. They would come to treat us the way we would treat the workers in a country like Guatemala and in the end idealists and intellectuals would be treated like they were in Argentina (disappeared). The Q & A section is a bit more lively, personal and brings out a level of wisdom that shows the book in its best light. "There will be many questions that you cannot answer. You will have to live with them. Your education about the Greater Community is only at the very beginning. You must approach it with great sobriety and care. You must counteract your own tendencies to try and make the situation pleasant or reassuring. You must develop an objectivity about life, and you must look beyond your own personal sphere of interests in order to put yourself in a position to respond to the greater forces and events that are shaping your world and your future." One characteristic that the visitors can be depended upon to exhibit is that they will capitalize on our rosy expectations for the future. The mental and technological powers that they have can be used to project holographic illusions as well. Also "the visitors will utilize the fundamental idea of allegiance to a single leader in order to generate allegiance to their cause." The book suggests that the visitors will stage a Second Coming. "He will be one who is born and bred for this purpose by the collectives that are in the world today. He will appear human and will have significant abilities compared to what you can accomplish at this moment. We will seem completely altruistic. He will be able to perform acts that will engender either fear or great reverence. He will be able to project images of angels, demons or whatever his superiors wish to expose you to. He will seem to have spiritual powers. ...Eventually, for those who cannot follow him, he will encourage their alienations or their destruction." We have an expectation that the visitors must be more spiritually advanced than we are and thus we will tend to look up to them for guidance, kind of like asking an executive at Enron for investment advice, a really bad idea. This book some big assumptions, the biggest is that homo sapiens will ever amout to anything but greed based, planet trashing barbarians themselves. It points out that the collectives consider themselves to be saviors that will keep man from destroying this planet. Man has a long way to go spiritually and very little time left to do it in. This is one of those books that really needs to be seen by a wider audience than it is getting now... The ideas are valuable and presented in a respectful tone. The channel who has come forward with the material is seen by respected authorities as sincere and convincing. The content of the message is in linguistic and spiritual keeping with quality channeling standards. Those unfamiliar with channeling may feel at a disadvantage in not having developed a sense of discernment for this genre of writing. Touchstones with which to compare this book are works by Seth, Immanuel as well as A Course in Miracles. A real appreciation can only come with a full read, not just the tidbits seen here.

This is a wonderful, very helpful review. I laughed a few times at your analogies, which were insightful and effective. Thank you for writing it! I already had decided to buy the book, based on an excellent interview with the author on Project Camelot by Kerry Cassidy. But I truly enjoyed and appreciated all the effort you put into this review for a seemingly very important book. You did your part with this one!

You are a shill for Marshall Summers. All those 5 star ratings on his books were written by his followers. All you have to do is click on their name and you will see the only books they "review" are books by Marshall Sumers.

Then I'm guessing you're a shill for the visitors.
