Michael Salla’s Exopolitics: The Political Implication of Aliens

Michael Salla’s Exopolitics: The Political Implication of Aliens

In academia there’s very little room to stray from your field of specialty, let alone the areas of study deemed worthwhile by the ivory tower. And no one is more familiar with this stringency than Dr. Michael Salla, a man with an impressive resume that culminated in an associate professorship teaching international politics at American University.

But about five years in to his teaching, Salla stumbled upon a deep rabbit hole of overwhelming evidence in the world of ufology and became quickly ostracized for expressing interest to colleagues. Undeterred, he continued his research independently, pioneering his own brand of government study he dubbed ‘Exopolitics.’

Today Salla enjoys notoriety as one of the most recognized names in his field, continuing to refine exopolitics’ definition as the political implications the existence of extraterrestrial life has on Earthly politics.

Salla’s Expolitics Institute

Today, when he’s not speaking at conferences, penning a new book, or appearing on Gaia programming, Salla is updating his website exopolitics.com and running the Exopolitics Institute, a non-profit educational organization in Hawaii, where he resides. The institute is chaired by another recurrent Gaia guest Paola Harris, as well as extraterrestrial investigator Neil Gould. Listed among its advisory board one finds a slew of recognizable names in the world of ufology, including Jaime Maussan, Freddy Silva, and James Gilliland.

Salla’s Exopolitics Institute offers a number of programs for those seeking to learn more about the world of ufology and extraterrestrial life. Students have several options ranging from a certification course to a comprehensive expolitics diploma.

Salla notes that exopolitics is significant whether you believe in the extraterrestrial hypothesis or not. For hardcore skeptics, many can accept the premise that it’s only a matter of a time until we discover extraterrestrial life in the cosmos, and when we do, there will inevitably be political implications. And for those who believe there is already an extraterrestrial presence either covered-up or within plain sight, there are obvious implications as well.

That’s why the Expolitics Institute has created its own UFO news programs to gain public attention and promote debate on the topic. The goal of these programs is to bring awareness to…

“an interdisciplinary scientific field, with its roots in the political sciences, that focuses on research, education and public policy with regard to the actors, institutions and processes, associated with extraterrestrial life, as well as wide range of implications this entails through public advocacy and newly emerging paradigms.”

In addition to these channels, Salla et al. have even created the exopolitical version of Wikipedia, known as Exopaedia – an exhaustive taxonomy of extraterrestrial races, terms and their historical context. They really did their homework here!

The Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary Program

Though Australian by birth, Salla has made the island state of Hawaii his home. But he also realized that much like his home country, Hawaii was once inhabited by an indigenous people before the imperialistic powers that be, fomented a coup and annexed the island nation as a state of the U.S.

Prior to U.S. occupation, the Kingdom of Hawaii proclaimed itself a neutral nation under King Kamehameha III, in 1854. More than a century later, the U.S. government issued a statement of apology to Hawaii in 1993 for its imperialist overreach, recognizing Hawaiians’ sovereignty as a people. Using this precedent, Salla helped a group of representatives in the reinstated Hawaiian Kingdom establish the Hawaii Star Visitor Sanctuary – an area for benevolent extraterrestrial life forms to land and be greeted peacefully by ambassadors, if and when they arrive.

The impetus for such a location, aside from Salla’s work, stemmed from the Hawaiian traditional belief – oddly similar to many other disparate native groups – that their people were brought to Earth from the Pleiades star system, also known as the Seven Sisters. The official document proclaiming the sanctuary’s establishment was signed May 28, 2014.

The sanctuary is located in the Kalapan region on the Big Island of Hawaii and is regularly open to visitors.

Do Thousands of Alien Contact Accounts Share Same Message?

Do Thousands of Alien Contact Accounts Share Same Message?

Though UFO sightings have been traced to the days of prehistoric man — with ancient drawings of spacecraft, mysterious symbols, and humanoid creatures depicted on cave walls all over the world — the overwhelming number of encounters are only now starting to receive the attention they deserve. UFO abduction stories and alien contact have poured into the mainstream for decades, even while those who claim to have had these experiences find themselves as targets of social mockery.  

UFO Abduction Experiences

Detractors who disbelieve abduction experiences often fail to take into consideration the character of the individuals who claim to have been abducted. A vivid stereotype stands in the way of fair treatment for experiencers: a delusional hillbilly at a rural bar rambling about far-fetched stories, or a drug-addled person ranting to no one in particular in the middle of a populated city center. But these abductee tropes are unfair and antiquated.

Giving actual credence to contact claims are the accounts of respected professionals who’ve come forward with their own stories, including military personnel, media personalities, and political figures. There are many people from all walks of life who have reported abductions and contact, such that a new generation of dedicated researchers has emerged, interested in learning more about these vivid and often terrifying experiences. Meanwhile, a number of psychologists have attempted to understand the lingering trauma and emotional scars of these abductees who work to cope with the ensuing trauma and disruption in their daily lives.

Harvard psychiatrist John Mack observed that the fear of social rejection and invalidation can often be more traumatic to an abductee than the actual experience of abduction. He said, “Every other culture in history except this one, in the history of the human race, has believed there were other entities, other intelligences in the universe… why are we so goofy about this? Why do we treat people like they’re crazy, humiliate them, if they’re experiencing some other intelligence?”

Similarly, physicist and UFO researcher Stanton Friedman noted, “I check all my audiences [on the lecture circuit] and find that, while in agreement with polls, 10% have had a sighting but only 5-10% of these witnesses have been willing to report what they saw. Biggest reason? Fear of ridicule.”

Photographer Kim Carlsberg was a few days into working on the set of the hit television show “Dallas” when she went home and saw her first UFO, which she dubbed the “Moon Over Malibu.”

A few weeks later, Carlsberg went to bed and woke up in a spacecraft, which would be the first of a series of abduction events that continued for seven years. During abductions, she says she was the subject of experimentation and claims to have been impregnated to create hybrids of aliens and humans. She says she has learned profound spiritual lessons, having been shown the oneness of the universe and all of its species. And she reports a resounding mission among the extraterrestrials “[T]hat it is time to save Mother Earth from her inhabitants.”

Carlsberg’s first book, “Beyond My Wildest Dreams,” discusses her personal UFO abduction story, while her second book, “The Art of Close Encounters,” serves as a forum for 150 people to tell their UFO abduction stories.
