The Hybrid Consciousness in the ET Encounter Narrative

Amongst one of the most compelling aspects of the UFO Phenomenon is situated within the ET contact experience, or the 'high strangeness' of what transpires during human and alien interactions. How experiencers define this space, both in terms of language and visual art forms, exhibits the same traits as those expressed by people of a dual or multiple nationality in human society. This evidence however, which helps to validate the contactee narrative by establishing the effects of ET contact on human consciousness, has been ignored by societal institutions.

What this psychosocial dynamic demonstrates, however, is what occurs when two or more cultures intersect: an emerging hybrid consciousness that may possibly reveal one of the wider purposes of ET communication with the Earth's citizens. It is one that may hold the key to what the next step in the development of human evolution may be.

Natasha's lecture will look at how specific experiencers' encounters with ETs create the sense of a fragmented identity and a dislocation from the human environment. How the dualistic view, often perceived as inherent within human consciousness, begins to dissolve and is replaced by a hybridised human and alien world view. How the 'middle ground' of spoken and written forms of alien language may be preparing human consciousness for the hybrid enterprise, and a multi-dimensional way of perceiving the world. How the hybrid enterprise is represented is visual art forms and why 'dream' encounters with ETs may prove to be more than just the individual's unconscious processing of thoughts.

Natasha Acimovic presented "The Hybrid Consciousness in the ET Encounter Narrative" at the 4th Annual British Exopolitics Expo in Liverpool on Sunday August 5th, 2012.
