> 1. What is your prime motivation for sharing the knowledge contained within "Revolt of the Rebel Angels The Future of the Multiverse"?
Having spent the last thirty years immersed in the study of non-human intelligences--primarily dolphins, extraterrestrials and angels--I must have been being prepared for a long, extended, and extremely intimate relationship with Georgia, my name for the discarnate rebel angel with whom I'm writing this new series of books. The first volume, Confessions of a Rebel Angel, came out in 2012, published by Bear & Company, who also published Revolt of the Rebel Angels and Rebel Angels in Exile, which will be coming out in 2014.
To answer your question more directly: I'd never intended to try to publish Georgia's Confessions all the time we were writing the first book--I thought it was far too personal because Georgia's writing is so honest and revealing. Completing the first book, however, Georgia made it clear that she felt it would have a wider value if it did get out there. So I was both surprised and affirmed when a publisher as selective and effective as Inner Traditions/Bear & Company appear to be taking on the series. Of course, it's ultimately going to depend on sales and whether other people resonate with what Georgia is revealing.
I think of them as very much Georgia's books although it's truly a collaboration rather than merely a channeling. We work together as though she was sitting beside me or looking over my shoulder. She shares concepts, anecdotes, what she has observed and experienced during her half-million-years posting on the planet. We also agreed when we started off that Georgia would also tell my biography but from her point of view. What she observed and heard that I didn't know about; that had happened around me or behind my back. Fascinating, of course, but sometimes more than I bargained for! But the arrangement had to stand. If Georgia's observations were going to be helpful to the reader, they had to be honest and openly expressed.
I should also say off the top that I don't write my books to try to convince anyone of the "ultimate truth" of my words. Mainly I write for my own inner understanding, focusing on what I don't know rather than what I do. These are not areas for which there is any external evidence, so it's more about developing an efficient working intuition and then putting out the information and pay attention to the level of resonance the information creates in the reader.
As the basic thesis that Georgia is exposing concerns the incarnation of an increasingly large number of rebel angels--perhaps as many as 120 million so far, she tells me, and all over the world--most of whom are unaware of their angelic heritage and yet feel very different from normal human beings. This is about personal redemption on the part of the rebel angels; an opportunity to make amends by living as a mortal under the very conditions the rebellion encouraged--for better or worse.
Much of this basic information is contained in The Urantia Book, although it is from the point of view of the same authority against which Lucifer and his angels were rebelling. I explored the nature of this obvious bias in more depth in my first book Dolphins ETs & Angels.
Georgia says she is writing her Confessions for the benefit of those angels who supported the Lucifer Rebellion and who have now entered human incarnation to experience the best and the worst of the human condition.
So, I'd say my personal motivation for writing these books with Georgia is threefold: I'm fascinated by the information contained in Georgia's perceptive insights; I relish the challenge of maintaining a long-term creative relationship with a discarnate, non-human, entity, of high intelligence; and, writing with Georgia is proving to be the richest sources of relevant and valuable information I've yet come across.
Plus, of course, I just love this work. I'm having the time of my life and I'm thrilled to be finding an audience with the modest success of the books.
> 2. How does the book of Urantia fit into all of this?
I first bumped into The Urantia Book in the late 1970s and quickly realized it was an authentic document--it was what it claimed to be, more than 2000 closely-reasoned pages, excellently written, and transmitted from the angels and faithfully relaid in what are still-mysterious ways. This transmission started in around 1905, continued through until the later 1930s, and was published finally in 1955. I've read a lot of cosmologies but in spite of the telltale bias that I mentioned earlier around the Lucifer rebellion, I found this was the model which resonated most closely with my own experiences and with my intuition. It's a challenging read that acts as much a as an intelligence-accelerator, as it does as a massive information download.
I've come to appreciate that Georgia must have guided me to take in the UB in the first place knowing it was going to be the model that she would be using in her Confessions. I needed to have developed both the appropriate vocabulary for her use, as well as the broadening of understanding that the UB creates in the attentive reader.
Georgia is telling her story through the lens of the planetary history as described in the UB, either because that is what she experienced, or because that model is the metaphor most closely aligned to what she wants to explore and reveal. Regardless of the metaphor used, Georgia's primary interest seems to be to understand the ancient past for the erroneous decisions taken that have ended up producing the situation we find ourselves in today. Given that we live in an inhabited Multiverse, with millions upon millions of planets inhabited by sentient beings, it's hard to imagine that this is the best way to administer a fledgeling world. There wouldn't be an inhabited Multiverse, if the inhabitants of all the other worlds were as belligerent and uppity as this one.
Something else must be going on! And it was just that question which got me curious enough to plunge into what's become a lifetime exploration of what might be going on behind the scenes--behind the scrim of materal reality.
> 3. Could you tell us about the rebel angels being forgiven by God and being brought back into the fold?
To claim that the rebel angels have been "forgiven" is something of an oversimplification that I believe my publisher used as back-cover blurb on one of my books. As far as I understand it, it's not so much that "God has forgiven the rebel angels" (personally, I don't think God had much of a hand in it), but more that the rebel angels have been given the chance to forgive themselves (to put it in those terms). Georgia intimate in her books that the rebel angels are being given the opportunity to incarnate as a mortal on one of the 37 planets affected by the rebellion.
These are not "evil" beings, they are mainly administrative angels who were swept up into the call for more individual freedom and a call for greater independence, both for angels and for the mortal inhabitants in this System of Planets. (A Planetary System includes 1000 inhabitable, or to-be-inhabited, planets, of which something over half were already established with intelligent life at the time of the rebellion. Earth--called Urantia in this model--is numbered 606 out of the 1000).
Angels and humans are quite different species, existing in different frequency-domains. As far as I know the experiment of angels incarnating as mortals is generally believed impossible--"Like squeezing a rainbow into a Coke bottle," I heard from an angel contact some years ago. This is no trivial affair; it's truly an extraordinary experiment and a deeply spiritual affair, the results of which would not become clear for a while.
Almost all of the approximately 120 million incarnate rebel angel currently living as human beings are completely unaware of their angelic heritage--many would likely dismiss it out-of--hand--because the task at hand is to live the life of a human being. Yet any one of them will have felt they are somehow quite different in some fundamental way from "normal" men and women, often starting with family members. One of Georgia's reasons for including a biographic narrative of my own life story has been to illustrate some of the challenges and opposing forces I've had to deal with during my 73 swings around the sun, has been to create moments of sympathetic resonance whereby readers, who are themselves rebel angel reincarnates, might have an awakening jolt of deep intuition.
We awaken incrementally to our true natures and identities.
> 4. Who exactly is the angel known as Georgia?
Georgia says she is a relatively junior angel of the Order of Seraphim, who was assigned to this planet as part of the first off-planet intervention 500,000 years ago, as part of Princess Caligastia's large team of angelic helpers. Her function was primarily observational, reporting back to the Prince's staff in Dalamatia, the city they'd constructed on the southern coast of the Persian Gulf, now long disintegrated and underwater.
At the time of the Lucifer Rebellion 203,000 years ago, Georgia had already been witnessing the beginning of the serious problems and conflicts arising among the Prince's staff. When the choice was finally made as to whether to stay faithful to the old guard, or follow Lucifer and their Prince, 60 of the 100 primary members of his staff elected to follow the rebel path.
Georgia is unusual in that she was one of the relatively few rebel angels who remained on the planet after the rebellion to serve as a Watcher. With the exception of occasional short visits to half-a-dozen other nearby inhabited planets, she has served continuously on this world until the present day.
Getting to know Georgia, as I have over the years, has allowed me some invaluable insights into the nature of the angelic intelligence, its limitations and its strong points. Although angels in general are not sexual beings, both Georgia and I agree that our relationship is closer to that of lovers, in many ways even more intimate as I feel her active within my inner world. I suspect it's only within the bond of supreme trust--with all the attendant risks--and the loving affection we both feel that only deepens from the poignant pleasure we find in our differences. Perhaps it's only within this level of psychic and spiritual intimacy that a project such as ours could successfully take place.
> 5. Where is Lucifer now exactly and is he helping with Earth any at this time in a positive manner?
To the best of my knowledge, Lucifer has been removed from the scene and what we are experiencing on the planet right now is an unwinding and exposure of all the corruption and rottenness baked into pretty much every field of human activity. That's why it appears so horrible when we switch on the News.
I've had no experience which has led me to think Lucifer is currently playing any active part in this world's affairs. He'd fulfilled his function, unsavory though it might have been--we don't always get the righteous roles!--so now the overall world situation is more of a clean-up operation.
This planet, one of the 37 to fall to rebel control, gradually devolved until it's now known in terms of its general condition as "the third to worst" of the ten million inhabitable planets in this Local Universe. Yet, not only does it provide fertile soil for the practice of mercy and forgiveness, but it has great value as an arena for toughening up errant souls.
> 6. Could you tell us more about the celestial quarantine?
At the time of the Lucifer Rebellion, so says the Urantia document, the Multiverse Authorities placed not only this world, but the entire System of 1000 planets, under a general planetary quarantine. The effect of this was to minimize extraterrestrial visitations to prevent, so the book tells us, the odious influence of the rebellion spreading beyond the System. It also had the effect of making the angels who attend us withdraw somewhat from our conscious awareness. We were on our own in a seemingly empty Multiverse..
The quarantine appears to have been designed to contain the rebellion, while allowing the rebel-led planets an opportunity to develop their own social and political systems free of MA's oversight. It was as if MA told Lucifer and the rebels that they'd made their beds, now they may as well sleep in them--but you'll get no help from us!
I have speculated that these interplanetary rebellions--admittedly rare but not entirely unknown--function as experimental laboratories both to shake up the bureaucratic administration of the Local System, as well as a way of introducing novelty into an essentially benign and well-meaning cosmic theocracy.
The central demand of Lucifer and the rebel faction was a demand for greater freedom of choice, both for themselves and for the mortal beings on the planets they served. They wanted to accelerate the otherwise natural (and painfully slow) process of growth and development of the mortal races. MA's agents, in their turn, did their worst to resist the rebellion before appearing to wash their hands of the affair, isolate the System, and vilify the rebels as deluded reprobates at best, and as self-serving, power-mad, manipulative monsters when they really get going.
In a sense, the revolt of the angels was somewhat similar to a rebellious child trying to break away from kind but old-fashioned parents, all sides completely convinced of their own rightness. Both parents and child are totally committed to their different approaches, neither prepared to show weakness lest they invalidate their own positions. And, as any parent knows, allowing a child too much freedom of choice can lead to terrible mistakes and serious errors of judgment; allow too little and you create a drone, or you force a rebellion.
Thus, there are three basic ways of thinking about the Lucifer Rebellion. As an interplanetary disaster that has severely retarded the progress in this System of planets, led by Lucifer, an insane egomaniac, who was charismatic enough to delude countless angels, as well as the celestial overseers of 37 inhabited planets. Or, the second: Lucifer as the one who had the courage to challenge, and ultimately, to rebel against, an overbearing, centralized, self-important, and downright boring, bunch of bureaucratic goody-goodies.
The third way is to step back and understand the Lucifer Rebellion as yet another scheme in an unfolding Cosmic Drama. In this we all play our parts, angels and mortals alike, hopefully with as much personal commitment and originality as can be summoned. The Bard was right. Except the stage is the Multiverse, not merely the world.
A dualistic reality is a continual dance of opposing elements, each containing the seed of its opposite. The balance will be constantly shifting as the system responds to both the internal and external pressures it may undergoing. Thus, the climate, for example, is clearly constantly moving towards an optimal state of equilibrium. With sentient beings, seeking this balance becomes a little more complicated. Here, the resolution to these opposing forces rests not in a constant conflict, but in a heartfelt synthesis which can include the best and most thoroughly-made aspects of each side of the conflict. I think of this moment of resolution as the Lucifer Redux Shift. It's that moment when opposing elements resolve their differences, learn from one another and move to a new level of collaboration. Rare enough these days--and in some fields it's anathema to seek synthesis, usually occurring where the delusion of winning remains so tempting--yet such resolutions are sometimes experienced in music. You can hear or experience it in freeform music, there can be a moment whem the players resolve their differences and seemingly magically unite to create an entirely new piece of music.
> 7. Who is Planetary Prince Caligastia and what was his role in all of this?
Again, the UB tells us that all inhabited worlds possess two "Planetary Princes" who are basically overseeing angelic activity and are responsible for the general progress of their planet's mortals' move from a purely animal intelligent to a state of consciousness which can sustain the indwelling of the Great God. Planetary Princes, together with their staffs, are posted to a world after the emergence from purely animal consciousness of the primary portal species--in our case, they arrived about half-a-million years after the human species made that evolutionary leap into a full biological and cortical independence from their animal forbears.
On a normal world--one not affected by the angelic revolt--the Planetary Princes, along with their staff and host of angelic helpers, continue to serve on their planets for many tens of thousands of years, shepherding their mortal wards through the many stages necessary to reach a high start of planetary civilization. Mortals from these worlds would be quite aware of the existence and work of the Prince's staff, as well as the handful of subsequent interventions. They would be fully aware of the coming and going of extraterrestrials and they would know that they were truly citizens of the Multiverse. On a rebellion-affected planet we know nothing of all this.
Prince Caligastia, like all Planetary Princes on their different planets, was imperceptible to mortal senses. And similar to all angels, he wasn't capable of entering human consciousness if not specifically requested, but his influence among the angels themselves was far more profound and dangerous. Most of the problems this world has faced in the last 203,000 years can be placed at Prince Caligastia's feet. He, far more than Lucifer or Satan, can be identified in devilish terms.
> 8. What experiences have you had paranormal wise to validate that you are indeed having contact with these beings?
I have been having paranormal experiences of one sort are another for much of my life, many of which I've described in my three books of the DETA cycle (Dolphins, Extraterrestrials & Angels 1984; Adventures among Spiritual Intelligences 1992 and 2001; and the Return of the Repel Angels 2012)
In a realm in which there is no obvious evidence or objective proof I have found it's in the development of my intuition that I've been able to make some progress in my researches. Developing the intuition is of great value to the angels as they can then make a more reliable connection with us when needed.
Having been an architect I have a fairly down-to-Earth aspect to my personality which balances out my commitment to the more subtle regions. Here's how I approach this issue: if and when I have a paranormal event occurs--and I check it for any obvious explanations--and it feels real, I throw myself wholeheartedly into that experience. If it is real it leads me on to the next stage; if it's unreal or a delusion, it will soon drop away, or it will reveal itself as false.
Must importantly, I write primarily for my own understanding and not to convince a reader that I have it all correct. It's merely the best model I've found so far that seems to work for me. It's far too complicated an interplanetary and interdimensional situation for any one person to have more than a scintilla of the truth--and be thankful if they get that right!
For me, it's entirely to do with resonance. With intuitive insights that allow us to feel the truth of a claim from another source, internal or external. I'm not interested in "converting" anyone--I don't need the ego-gratification of another's agreement--I am interested, however, when my thesis strikes a familiar chord in a readers heart. When readers start waking up to their true natures, my books and insights merely illustrate the stepping-stones one person is taking on his own journey. And as I am not trying to prove anything, or convince anyone, this allows me more freedom to be wrong. It's by letting myself be wrong that I can lean; get it right first time--well, it's cool and all, but nothing significant will be learned. Get it wrong and learn from the error and the sky's the limit.
> 9. Could you go into your life a bit with the Process Church and how that came about and ended?
I regard The Process Church as a Mystery School for the accelerated spiritual awareness of some mighty intransigent souls who needed the peculiar experiences and harsh conditions of complete immersion in a spiritual community. I wrote about this far more fully in my book, Love Sex Fear Death: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment, that was published in 2009 by Feral House.
Among the gifts I received in my thirteen years of commitment to The Process, but by no means full, were as follows: a working familiarity with such unacceptable names as Lucifer and Satan; that Jesus's admonition to love our enemies was a real and practical guide to a good life; that we are all responsible for both everything we say and do, as well as whatever happens to us; that for every intention in a dualistic setup, there will always be elements present of a counter-intention; that the negative imprints from previous incarnations can affect the psyche of the present life.
The Process started in London, England, in the early 1960s and went through several iterations before it imploded between 1977 and 1978. Perhaps a dozen of the original members now run Best Friends, a large animal sanctuary in Utah, but they no longer consider themselves a religious organization.
I left the community in 1977 very grateful to be out and free. I'd given away my power so completely to Mary Ann, the prime mover of The Process, that in taking my power back I was able to appreciate how unknowingly we can give away our power. It can happen whenever we surrender the integrity of our decision-making facility to another person, or another ideology. One of the great values of such an intense closed community is the challenge to somehow develop a sufficiently strong intention that is needed to break the bonds and leave the group with a renewed sense of self.
The revolt which caused the final dissolution of The Process Church was largely of my instigation and was the result of Mary Ann and her cronies' rejection of my call for greater freedom and for more personal responsibility to make our own choices. I was amused when later I discovered I was unknowingly emulating Lucifer's squabble with the Multiverse Authorities, as I was subsequently castigated and reviled in somewhat the same manner when I decided to leave The Process. But it's not that uncommon an experience in a world where the domination of others rates such high value.
> 10. What are you up to next book wise and do you have any links you'd like to share with us?
In 1982 I decided to write a book every ten years to chart the impact that intelligent non-human beings were having on life in this world. The first, Dolphins Extraterrestrials & Angels was published in 1984 and remains in print. It was republished by Inner Traditions/Bear & Company, as Dolphins ETs & Angels.
The second book, Dolphins Telepathy & Underwater Birthing, came out in 1992 and was republished by Bear & Company in 2002, retitled Adventures among Spiritual Intelligences.
The third book of the series, Return of the Rebel Angels, was published by Bear & Company in 2011, and was a summation of what I've learned so far. I'd always pictured the DETA series as a trilogy--as those three books. Rather pompously, I thought of these three books as a service to my fellow humans. However, I've no doubt if I'm still around in the 2020s, I'll be writing about our interactions with a host of different interplanetary visitors, in an a general atmosphere of open acceptance.
Right now I am more interested in continuing to collaborate with Georgia on her further Confessions. I'm learning so much from it. We have by now completed eight volumes and there will clearly be more to come. With Bear & Company publishing the first three volumes--the third, Rebel Angels in Exile, emerges in 2014--it's my hope they will continue to publish the series if the interest and the sales figures justify it.
I've been taking a nine-month sabbatical from working with Georgia, but as I write this on the first day of October 2013, I can sense Georgia's enthusiasm brewing for our next sessions--which I've told her will start again next month in November 2013. I'm starting to get excited about it again myself.
While I wrote the DETA trilogy with the intention of serving my fellow human beings, I think of my work with Georgia is my service to my fellow changelings, all those incarnate rebel angel who are likely reading these words.
