A message first distributed by Jean Ederman that claims to originate from a group of extraterrestrial races addressed to “individuals without distinction” (those outside of the elite groups that control political and economic processes), continues to circulate on the internet, and is increasingly gaining world wide attention. At the time of writing, it had been translated into at least 10 languages, and generated numerous website discussions and initiatives (see below report):

The alleged extraterrestrial sponsors of the message transmitted through Ederman wanted to ask “individuals without distinction” the question "Do You Wish That We Show Up?" The extraterrestrials claimed to be conducting a global ballot on behalf of extraterrestrials concerned about the future of humanity’s sovereign control of the planet.

In contrast, the author Marshall Vian Summers recently released a message of his own that is based on another group of extraterrestrials warning of the dangers posed by inviting extraterrestrial intervention and the consequences for humanity (see below report):

Vian Summers is himself a well-known ‘transmitter’ of messages from a group of extraterrestrials calling themselves the ‘Allies of humanity’ who also claim to be concerned about humanity’s sovereign control of the planet. Vian Summers' message offers a very different assessment of the wisdom of giving permission to extraterrestrials to ‘show up’.

I offer the following exopolitical analysis that contrasts and evaluates the messages and advise provided by Ederman and Vian Summers. This helps bring into focus some of the important issues that need to be discussed in terms of how ‘individuals without distinction’ might respond to what may be a genuine offer of assistance from a group of extraterrestrials to ‘show up’ and usher in dramatic global changes. This contrast will help clarify some of the anxiety and uncertainty that many individuals have in considering whether Ederman’s Message is genuine, and whether an affirmative response is appropriate.

Message to Humanity: Decide Whether We Should Show Up

The ‘Decide Whether We Should Show Up’ message focuses on the inimical influence of the extraterrestrial presence currently on Earth that it describes as a ‘third party’, and the danger this poses to human sovereignty. Ederman’s message claims:

There are two ways to establish a cosmic contact with another civilization: via its standing representatives or directly with individuals without distinction. The first way entails fights of interests, the second way brings awareness. The first way was chosen by a group of races motivated by keeping mankind in slavery, thereby controlling Earth resources, the gene pool and human emotional energy.

The message is here alluding to secret agreements signed between a group of races from Zeta Reticulum/Orion and US government authorities, and possibly other governments since at least 1954, if not earlier. These agreements were negotiated in secret, and are still not disclosed after 50 years (see report HERE). Ederman’s message describes the dire nature of this extraterrestrial intervention and the use of secret technology it has spawned as follows:

Until recently, mankind lived a satisfying control of its decisions. But it is losing more and more the control of its own fate because of the growing use of advanced technologies, which lethal consequences on the earthly and human ecosystems become irreversible. You are slowly but surely losing your extraordinary capacity to make life desirable. Your resilience will artificially decrease, independently of your own will. Such technologies exist that affect your body as well as your mind. Such plans are on their way.

In presenting an appropriate response to the secret agreements struck by government authorities and the Zeta/Orion extraterrestrials, Ederman’s message asked for a global ballot on the question: “Do You Wish that We Show Up”:

For us, the immediate consequence of a collective favorable decision would be the materialization of many ships, in your sky and on Earth.

Ederman’s message declares that the consequence of this showing up would be:

A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions on your future. Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved for ever, in all fields of activity.

Most importantly, the Message declares that as far as the extraterrestrials secretly present on Earth are concerned, the following would happen: <![endif]>

Danger would slowly melt away from your homes because you would indirectly force the undesirable ones, those we name the "third party", to show up and vanish.

In short, an affirmative vote would essentially end the secrecy of the extraterrestrial presence and the intervention that has been occurring for at least the last 50 years.

While Ederman does not use a model to frame his analysis, the most apt analogy to describe the strategic factors he describes is similar to the situation of former East European nations under communism. The ‘third force’ plays a role similar to the Soviet Union and its proxy East European communist elites, while the ‘individuals without distinction fit the role of the former East European dissidents and the general population.


The West’s role of providing assistance during the communist era in the form of accurate information about the nature of the communist system, and the human rights violations that had occurred, comes closest to describing the model of intervention that Ederman’s message suggests the extraterrestrials have in mind. I now move to the message provided by Marshall Vian Summer’s and its relevance to helping understand what extraterrestrial intervention means.

Vian Summers and “Reflections on Thanksgiving”

Vian Summers titled his own recent message, “Reflections on Thanksgiving,” and alluded to the intervention of Europeans in the Americas and the consequences for the native population as a way of describing the results of extraterrestrial intervention:

This Intervention is instructive to us now because we are facing a new Intervention of a much larger magnitude, an Intervention which threatens to displace and oppress not just certain tribes or groups of people, but all the peoples of the world.

Vian Summers is here using as his model the ‘Conquest of the Americas’ to warn against what he describes as the looming extraterrestrial intervention by a collection of extraterrestrial races he calls the ‘Collectives’. He elaborates on his model as follows:

We are the natives of the New World now facing an Intervention that could seem to offer promise and hope for a struggling humanity. Yet we risk the same failure that led to the subjugation of the native peoples of every "New World" that has been discovered and overcome by intervening forces in our own history.

Referring to the presence of extraterrestrial races for at least the last 50 years, Vian Summers writes:

What I am referring to is the worldwide Extraterrestrial Intervention that has been building over the past 50 years. This Intervention has been observed by tens of thousands of people worldwide, but the awareness of it remains suppressed under a veil of denial and ridicule.

Vian Summers believes that the extraterrestrial intervention that has already occurred is just a forerunner to what lies ahead:

Now, instead of being the conquerors, we are the ones facing conquest, a conquest that is being carried out in a very subtle and devious manner by a small expeditionary ET force.

Vian Summer’s reference to the intervention appears limited to sightings of extraterrestrial craft, and the activities of a “small expeditionary ET force”. Thus his model of the Americas before the European conquest suggests we are in the initial stages of a major extraterrestrial intervention.

Evaluating Ederman’s and Vian Summers Analyses of Extraterrestrial Intervention

The implicit model that describes the situation on Earth that precedes open extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs for Ederman is the state of Eastern Europe before the collapse of communism. This contrasts greatly with the explicit model used by Vian Summer’s to describe the situation preceding open extraterrestrial intervention. Vian Summer’s model of the ‘Conquest of the Americas’ appears on the surface to be an appropriate way of framing the open appearance and intervention of extraterrestrial races in human affairs, and its possible consequences. His model, however, has the major limitation that it minimizes the full extent of the secret extraterrestrial intervention that has already occurred on Earth.

The secret agreements signed between representatives of the US government and extraterrestrial races have led to technology exchanges, and even joint extraterrestrial-government bases whose existence are not disclosed to elected political officials nor to the general public. Rather than being limited to simple technology exchanges, these bases have conducted extensive genetic and mind control experiments on human subjects and have involved extensive human rights violations
(see report HERE).


Researchers such as David Jacobs and Budd Hopkins (visit Web Site HERE) have furthermore described the nature of the extraterrestrial intervention that has occurred and the extensive human abduction programs and genetic experiments that have been undertaken by the Zeta/Orion extraterrestrial races. Jacobs in particular has identified the genetic hybrid program conducted by the Zeta Grays as far advanced in their agenda, and posing a direct threat to human sovereignty (visit Web Site HERE).


There has also been extensive infiltration of military-intelligence organizations involved in ‘Black Projects’ that deal with extraterrestrial races (see report HERE). These ‘Black Projects’ have resulted in the development of a black budget that goes as high as one trillion dollars or more annually that is secretly siphoned out of the US economy.


The extraterrestrial intervention that has occurred since the 1950’s has been kept secret, consumes vast financial resources, has compromised the national security system created to deal with the extraterrestrial presence, and threatens the sovereignty of humanity. Rather than a Conquest of the America’s model, a more apt model for describing current conditions on Earth with the secret extraterrestrial intervention is that of Eastern Europe under communist rule.

While acknowledging the secret extraterrestrial presence for 50 years, Vian Summer instead focuses his attention on the danger posed by open extraterrestrial intervention. Yet the above evidence suggests humanity is already at a cross roads due to the secret extraterrestrial intervention that has occurred. B


y framing his analysis of extraterrestrial intervention in terms of the dangers of an open intervention that would parallel the ‘Conquest of the Americas’, Vian Summers is playing down the nature of the crisis currently posed by the secret extraterrestrial intervention. Indeed his model suggests the greatest danger lies ahead with ‘open intervention’. The evidence available, however, points to the danger humanity has with extraterrestrials secretly intervening on Earth, rather than extraterrestrials desiring to intervene in an open way.

By elevating the danger posed by a possible ‘open extraterrestrial intervention’ by the ‘collectives’, Vian Summer’s can be criticized for inadvertently aiding the very phenomenon he seeks to eliminate – the extraterrestrial threat to human sovereignty. In contrast, Ederman’s Message does correctly identify the nature of the present problem posed by the secret intervention by extraterrestrial races, the need for taking corrective action, and the possible assistance that could be gained by ‘open intervention’ by extraterrestrial races that are friendlier to human sovereignty. Ederman’s implicit model of Eastern Europe under communist rule is a more apt description of the true situation confronting humanity under secret extraterrestrial intervention.

While Vian Summer’s does not directly address Ederman’s message, Vian Summer’s November message is quite clear in dismissing any requests for intervention by other extraterrestrial races.

The failure is not recognizing the intentions of those new forces that we are encountering…. The failure is our blind hope that someone or something else "out there" will save us.

The basis for this dismissal comes from his claim concerning the inimical threat posed to humanity by the extraterrestrial ‘collectives’ that have both secretly intervened on Earth, and further seek to intervene openly. When attention is cast on the nature of the ‘collectives’ that allegedly comprise all extraterrestrials races desiring to intervene or presently interacting on earth, and their activities and agenda, Vian Summers makes the sweeping generalization that these do not act in humanity’s best interest.


The only extraterrestrials that do so are the ‘Allies of humanity’ who follow a strict non-interventionist philosophy. Thus the moral framework Vian Summers uses comes down to a very simplistic dualistic framework of benign extraterrestrials that have a non-interventionist philosophy, and those extraterrestrials that have an interventionist philosophy and who by definition do not have humanity’s best interests at heart. The basis for this sweeping generalization is the ‘Allies of humanity’ themselves by their transmissions through Vian Summers, rather than independent sources.

In contrast, an extensive number of independent sources confirm a broad range of motivations and activities of extraterrestrial races that hold both interventionist or non-interventionist philosophies, thereby negating any assessment of extraterrestrials into two simple moral categories for extraterrestrial races based on their approaches to intervention
(see report HERE). Indeed a number of sources point to an important difference between interventionist extraterrestrial races that follow a policy we would consider inimical to human sovereignty, and those races who intervene in a manner that promotes humanity’s long term interests (see report HERE).

Consequently, Vian Summer’s has provided an insufficient basis for determining the motivations and agendas of the various extraterrestrial races that seek to interact with global humanity. In contrast, Ederman has provided a contrast between two classes of interventionist extraterrestrials: those that do so through open and transparent agreements; and those that do so through secret agreements with political elites. This suggests a critical distinction that Vian Summer’s overlooks, and which seriously undermines his overall argument.

This leads to the critical question, what do the ‘Allies of humanity’ that Vian Summer’s speaks on behalf of, offer humanity? Vian Summer gives the following answer:

We are facing a direct challenge to our sovereignty and right of self-determination on our own planet of origin. Yet we are unprepared. This has called for a Divine Intervention… Because we are unprepared and cannot see what we stand to lose, a Divine preparation has been sent, calling now upon all of our inherent abilities and spiritual strength.


The preparation revealed in the books Steps to Knowledge: The Book of Inner Knowing, Wisdom from the Greater Community and Greater Community Spirituality : A New Revelation, mysteriously connects us to the Divine within. It gives us the ability and the inner authority to see and to know what to do in the face of this Intervention and all future Interventions which we may likely encounter.

What the ‘Allies of humanity’ offer is a “New Revelation” that would essentially be a self-help philosophy. Given the present nature of the secret extraterrestrial intervention on Earth, Vian Summer’s solution might be criticized as simply offering philosophical inspiration while a secret extraterrestrial intervention continues unabated.


Those who would most likely respond to the Vian Summer’s message of self-help would be individuals outside of the powerful groups of elites that are in control of extraterrestrial policy, or the vast majority of the general public that have little time for ‘extraterrestrial fables’. Offering a self-help philosophy to assist individuals who would have to simultaneously combat secret extraterrestrial intervention, the opposition of political elites, and the apathy of the general public, appears very nave if not patronizing.

A self-help philosophy through a ‘New Revelation’ that dismisses the possibility of assistance from benevolent extraterrestrial races offering to show up in a way that ushers in disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence needs to be criticized as strategic suicide. It would be similar to former Eastern European dissidents refusing to cooperate with Western European human rights and pro-democracy organizations due to the latter’s ‘bourgeois’ sympathies and agendas.


Vian Summer’s message offers no immediate means of addressing the secret extraterrestrial intervention that has been occurring for at least 50 years, and the entrenched interests of political elites and public apathy that makes this intervention possible.

In contrast, Ederman’s communication offers the opportunity for a group of extraterrestrial races to simply show up, thereby ending any doubt of the extraterrestrial presence. According to the extraterrestrials communicating through Ederman:

A simple conclusive visual contact would have huge repercussions on your future. Much knowledge would be modified forever. The organization of your societies would be deeply upheaved for ever, in all fields of activity. Power would become individual because you would see for yourself that we are living. Concretely, you would change the scale of your values !

In short, Ederman’s message provides the opportunity for an open extraterrestrial intervention that would parallel the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the disappearance of former communist rule in Eastern Europe.

Conclusion: Extraterrestrial Intervention and the Collapse of the Berlin Wall

Ederman’s extraterrestrials have made what appears to be a very constructive offer for ‘individuals without distinction’ to make a decision that potentially has decisive impact on the way extraterrestrial affairs are secretly managed by political elites. The extraterrestrials behind the offer, promise a strategy that could end the secrecy surrounding the current extraterrestrial intervention, and the role played by government elites and extraterrestrial races that have entered into these secret agreements. Irrespective of the final collective human response to the question, “Do You Wish that We Show Up,” merely pondering the question and seeking an appropriate response, will alert individuals to the true nature of the secret extraterrestrial intervention on our planet and act as a catalyst for political change.

In contrast, Vian Summers and the ‘Allies of humanity’ don’t offer an immediate strategy in the present crisis confronting humanity and the 50-year extraterrestrial intervention. Vian Summer’s at best offers a long-term solution in the form of a ‘philosophy of life’ that though inspirational for its adherents, would have little immediate impact on the dire situation confronting humanity. At worst, Vian Summers dismisses assistance from what may be very well a benevolent group of extraterrestrial races offering to genuine assistance in the dire situation faced by global humanity, by simply ending the secrecy surrounding the extraterrestrial presence
(see report HERE).

Ultimately giving an affirmative response to the question, “Do You Wish that We Show Up”, will at worst only make public a process that has been secretly occurring in any case, and is very well advanced as a number of independent sources have confirmed. At best, saying ‘yes’ could open up a brand new world where the extraterrestrial presence is revealed and those long cut off from the decision making process can finally begin having an impact on government policies concerning extraterrestrials.


The consequence of a negative response could be very great indeed since this could cut off tangible assistance from a benevolent group of extraterrestrial races that would be a catalyst for global change as a consequence of them doing no more than ‘showing up’ and ending any doubt over the extraterrestrial presence. Giving permission to the extraterrestrials associated with Ederman’s Message therefore poses far less risk, than denying it.

The extraterrestrials behind the Do You Wish that We Show Up’ offer, provide an opportunity to blow the cover on over 50 years of secret agreements that have permitted extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs. This group of extraterrestrials comes closer to displaying a strategic understanding of the dilemma confronting global humanity, and the need for external assistance as a catalyst for global humanity to awaken to the truth of extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs. This merits serious consideration of an affirmative answer to their question, “Do You Wish Us to Show Up?”


The breaking of the ‘Berlin Wall’ of secrecy and denial around the extraterrestrial intervention lies before us, the only step required by ‘individuals without distinction’ is to release their fear, confront the truth of the secret extraterrestrial intervention, and boldly step forward to accept an offer of benevolent extraterrestrial assistance. An online petition where ‘individuals without distinction’ can give their approval to the offer is available HERE.
