Are there Extraterrestrial Civilizations we are not aware of?
The Kardashev Scale
The research for my fifth visionary fiction novel in The Ascension Series: Parallel Worlds has taken me to many online websites but only recently did I learn about the Kardashev Scale.
Kardashev Scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to utilize and is able to direct towards communications to other neighboring star systems or worlds
In 1964, Kardashev defined three levels of civilizations
I was keen to find out what our civilization on Earth was rated at; and to my ‘not so surprised discovery’ was the following:
- Type 0 - 1 - "Technological level is close to the level presently attained on earth, but we are not there yet. We are still today in 2016 on a Type 0 civilization level. Most of us know that we have reached a turning point in society. According to Michio Kaku , the next 100 years of science will determine whether we perish or thrive.
In my novel Parallel Worlds I clearly interact with a Type II anti-matter civilization. Through the eyes of my two characters Tulanda and Hans I try to imagine what a Type II civilization would be like, but to imagine an anti-matter universe is even more daunting. My knowledge of physics is nil, but the reasons why I titled my novel Parallel worlds is because I think that when we talk about anti-matter, this reality is then composed of a material composed of antiparticles.
Only after watching the TV series Fringe did the pieces of a puzzle slowly come together for my novel. For me Fringe is the best original Science Fiction show I’ve come cross so far. From parallel universes to time travel to human experimentation, Fringe really incorporated everything they could into the story, in one way or another. Fringe is solid from beginning to end.
Parallel verses anti-matter
Big Bang theorist says that antimatter was created in the same amount as matter, but where did antimatter go?
Could it be that during this big bang it went into separate mental universes, in the form of opposite energy to the energy we observe the most of in our reality, physical matter? Could it be that our mental image pictures are conserved in the opposite energy of anti-matter because mental images are not tangible as antimatter might be? Or let’s say that if anti-matter if NOT tangible, it might be far less visible?
If these Parallel Universes are more physical, is our reality then just an illusion? If these Parallel Worlds have been here all along and that they have opposite energies, and make up for what we see as missing anti-matter, then somehow might this idea not to do with our consciousness?
Could our human consciousness be an anti-matter phenomenon?
In my novel Liesbeth – the physical character interacts with her Parallel self where she is known as Tulanda. Could it be that our consciousness is capable of creating an effect and counter-creating the same effect and this is then what we experience as a physical reality?
In all my ascension novels I share my philosophy that we are beings of light contained within a crystallized light world and when the lights go (through death or through an ascension process ) we move again at the speed of light towards our new home as light beings of energy who cannot die, only change form.
Where does religion come into it all?
The teachings of the religious texts regarding the truism “As above so below” teach this in veiled ways, but they have being perceived incorrectly. It’s my belief that our ancestors knew all of this, but modern science has been working hard to hide who we truly are. Holding onto a belief, be it a religious or scientific one, could very well be the end of our human civilizations. I will share why I think this is so.
The journey of the Jaarsma Clan
Both the Tulanda and Hans characters have taken me on a thought provoking tour. Just as I’m the creator of the characters of the jaarsma Clan, our universe might be a mind; The Absolute All that Is, but this mind has been split into two, anti-matter and matter.
If thoughts can be measured outside the head which we now believe to be true, then these thoughts must have massive power and therefore all ideas are in the ether. We just need to learn to plug in to that universal energy again before a new golden age can ensue.
In my story Hans keeps reminding his mother Annelies that anti-matter is not outside in some corner of the universe, it is actually right here in our living room, in the shower, at work, in the bathroom. It’s everywhere, but is located in different universes. She is as confused about this as I am, the creator of the Jaarsma Clan!
Through storytelling I have to be able to make tangible how our images of the world contain all sorts of soul qualities, (e.g colors, shapes, texture, smells). These soul qualities are the particles of Language of Light, and might very well belong to anti-consciousness and that there are beings composed of anti-matter, who have anti-consciousness. I think that they are as real as we are in our world, but in their own respective way.
Consciousness and mind is a mirror of the physical universe
I feel today that it is our mind that molds the matter into what we see; that we are all in tune with this universal mind, though we may be completely unaware of its existence because it’s not something we can measure or define. I think gravity is the force that the universal mind uses to create what our minds wish to see.
The video of Otto King was very helpful to me, but he says that the big bang causes anti-matter to disappear. He talks about the God particles, multiverse theories and parallel universes. He says there are three universes. His video brought me back to the beginning of this article. Otto brings in the tetrahedron and I did like his explanations. See for yourself.
Our spiritual world
Our spiritual world might be an anti-matter reality and therefore we are all Gods in the making. Here is the rest of the Kardashev Scale;
Type 1 – Their technological level is close to the level presently attained on earth, but we are not there yet. This type civilization is able to harness all of their planet’s energy. They have control over its natural forces such as volcanoes, weather and even earthquakes.
Type 2 – This is an interplanetary society and have the ability to occupy several planets, and their massive disposable energy makes this civilization virtually immune to extinction.
(In the series Star trek the Turians are a good example of this kind of civilization)
Type 3 – This is an interstellar society of galactic travelers, able to move from star to star capturing energy and colonizing planets. Un-involved humans become an inferior sub-species. They remind me of The Borg from Star Trek.
Type 4 – A few theorists like Michio Kaku and Carl Sagan see these as an intergalactic society that can even live inside super massive black holes. These advanced races would have superhuman capabilities such as changing the structure of space and time.
Type 5 – These are civilizations that can control the power output of collections of universes. These beings would be like Gods, having the knowledge to manipulate the universe as they please.
Today we as a human species are at the mercy of Earth’s natural forces and we still source our energy needs from dead plants and animals, but remember that we are (on a soul level) beings of light contained within a crystallized light.
Thanks for reading my philosophical musings.
(For our Type 0 civilization on planet Earth ever to evolve towards the type1 level, then every human being should read and be inspired with this poem: to be:The King of the World from Jodah )
