Pictured: Rachel Archelaus as Intimate Alien

“The learning of ‘How’ is the eternal ‘Why’ – unanswered! A genius is such, because he does not know how or why.”

― Austin Osman Spare, Book of Pleasure in Plain English

Her first name was Rachel, meaning ewe or female sheep—like the town in Nevada closest to Area 51—and her last was Archelaus meaning leader of the people—which is very close to Archuleta, as in Archuleta Mesa outside Dulce, NM, long rumored an underground alien base. What felt like a very old memory came back to me  of someone having commented lightheartedly on the irony of a sheep coming first in that linguistic construction, that a sheep would lead not follow, but I’d only just met Rachel. Another seemingly very old memory came, of my riding the bus down Colorado Boulevard in Denver and passing the Intuitive Art Academy campus, which has so far never existed anywhere. I don’t think either of these memories was based on anything that took place verifiably.

“Have the Zetas achieved emotional equilibrium?”

“Interesting wording. The Zetas, for many many many many years, did not engage with their emotions, it was kind of like a program that was turned off, and I don’t know when, but it seemed to me in the 70s and 80s, they were regaining emotions, and having a hard time with it. They were also now re-populating their people by—like—using human DNA, so that those emotions were coming back anyway,” shaking her head, “I don’t know the whole thing. Maybe the emotions came in because they were creating hybrids, zeta-human, because we are related to them, and then they had to deal with it. I don’t know the whole story, but—yes. I don’t know if ‘equilibrium’ is the word, but I feel like they—they have—they have a remedial grasp on it. I have felt a lot of compassion and love from them throughout the years, and so I know that they’re able to use it—I don’t know if it’s across the board, I don’t know if it’s everybody, I don’t know if it’s just with the newer generation or not, I’m not really sure, but I definitely feel like they have regained a lot of the humanity that they stepped away from, but—yeah, they’re cool—I like them.”

“It seems like there are less abductions. Maybe just not as popularized.”

“I—I don’t know. I don’t know. I think it was very big in the 80s, and I definitely was part of that, even though I didn’t know it at the time. I still—I still feel like it’s really—big. I don’t think, in my mind—I’m feeling like it hasn’t slowed down . . . but what I think is that they have gotten better at it. That’s what I think. So—I like to think of the abduction thing as like ‘taking your cat to the vet’. Right? I’ve got cats—or, any scared animal—any scared animal that can harm you, right?—like, when you take your cat to the vet? It does not like it. it does not know what you’re doing is helping it, it does not want to go, it will not go willingly, it’s—like—you cannot tell the cat what you are doing and it will understand you. We are the cat, right? Like, the abductions in the 80s were like ‘Get off of me, what are you doing? This is absolutely insanely terrifying. Who are you? Get away from me.’ And they were like, ‘Oh—we’re your friend, and you signed up for this, and we really wanna thank you so much for your contribution. I’m so sorry that you forgot you said you would do this for us!’  So—um—I think they’ve gotten better at it, I think they know how to make sure that we’re sleeping, and how to keep us asleep, and all that stuff, because I—I know I still go, very often. And there was a time in my life when I was really afraid, even in my adult years, when I first learned about this, and that I was so involved with them. I was terrified of seeing them, I would stay up all night sweating and holding the covers up because I just—I knew they were coming, and I couldn’t—I was paralyzed, with fear. And I would plead with them, like, ‘Please, please, let me go to sleep first, before you show up!’ And, um—I feel like they definitely do that. They definitely do.”

For years, mainstream scientists had said space travel across seemingly insurmountable distances between potentially inhabited planets was impossible, but what if they were afraid to face the unknown? Now that I was understanding the Path of Least Resistance as the secret to going with the flow, I was excited about a particular theory of space travel Tewodros had told me about, that black holes, or maybe it was wormholes, connected distant points in space. “Are black holes the points of least resistance? If so, it makes sense humans fear them, being humans.”

“That’s a really good theory. I think maybe for humans, because humans need a story, right? And there is a physical manifestation of all that we can comprehend doing energetically. Like—the physical realm, the physical dimension keeps up with our consciousness. So—that would make sense. But—they’re not needed by other-dimensional travel because many many dimensions don’t rely on our physical physics in order to travel. So—I mean that makes perfect sense in our world, here. Yeah, that makes sense. But other dimensions don’t need that, they just go where they want to go by intention.”

My love of mystery all these years had been mostly a rebellion against that circumscribed view of reality where everything that would ever happen was already known by smart-asses. Even in the 90s when magazines like Gnosis started talking about the union between science and religion with the discovery (popularization) of quantum physics, it was the chaos I was getting off on there and not the order. Nothing is true/everything is permitted, I tried living by that one instead for the sake of adventure. But the simple fact of alignment with desired effect being the necessary thing to its reproduction—here was a truth worth learning that was also an adventure the size of my imagination. In the next week or so I’d get my first or final Covid vaccination, depending which company’s vaccine they used. Did patients get a choice? Probably not. I’d go for the single shot option, given a choice.

But first, the dentist.
