“The human failing I would most like to correct is aggression,” he replied. “It may have had survival advantage in caveman days, to get more food, territory or partner with whom to reproduce, but now it threatens to destroy us all.” -Stephen Hawking
On November 25th President Barack Obama signed into law the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act. The bill discusses commercial space travel and transport regulations but specifically discusses resource exploration in our solar system. That is, taking from space.
Questions arise for me here. Is the Universe really for our taking? Could there be anyone or anything out there that says “Hey, wait, that’s not how this works!”? Because, how do we presume to know how resources are traded in the Universe? Who owns what? Might there already be rules in place? Could there be (gasp!) things we actually don’t know about a seemingly endless galaxy?
I am concerned that the leaders of our planet do not consider the consequences–the great risk that this runs for Humanity.
The New Message from God proposes to us that stepping out to participate amidst established trade routes in space haphazardly is essentially foolish:
Trade and commerce are both a benefit and a hazard. They provide a nation with access to resources that its world or collection of worlds does not possess. Yet they carry great hazards because wherever there is commerce, there is influence, and wherever there is influence, there is competition. Here one must gain great sophistication and establish very clear and sustained rules of engagement regarding commerce with other nations. And there must always be great care that the risk of contamination is kept to a minimum or is avoided altogether.
This post from growing Facebook group shares a similar perspective from the “Allies of Humanity”, a group purported to have extensive experience with the long road to being a free and interdependent race in the Universe.
Here they spark a thought within me about those who are already here, doing this same “exploration ad discovery” to us. But what about our rights? And wouldn’t we be violating the rights of others by plundering space? Can you have respect for an alien life form? I know humanity is showing difficulty getting along from nation to nation. This will be quite a leap.
Life in the Universe closes out chapter 4 with this call to action– a call as I see it to a big picture reality:
This is a harsh reality, but one that gives you scope and wisdom. There are certain requirements you must achieve if you are to remain free and self-determined. You cannot change these rules. They are rules of life. They are the requirements of living in the Greater Community into which you are now emerging

May we be discerning in our large scale actions. May we ask the big questions. It is a bold act to go into space, and we may finally have public information that can be agreed upon regarding life in the Universe, but let’s not find out the destructive way.
God wants you to awaken to the Greater Community Prophecy:
