The Human Alien:

 Understanding the consciousness as a means to
 reduce negative human behavior

 Nelson Correia Abreu




The author reflects on the potential of Conscientiology to reduce negative human behavior by allowing individuals to directly and scientifically identify a common, multidimensional, multi-existential, continuously-evolving human essence and the irrationality of negative manifestation.  The essay also recommends the dissemination of Conscientiology through intellectually-courageous news magazines and large, diverse universities.


   It is no surprise to read that the human race has had serious ethical and behavioral difficulties.  It has become very clear to those with knowledge of Conscientiology and Projectiology that our negative behavior and emotions are largely a result of the ignorance of our nature and of the dynamics of life.  While we attempt to detect extraterrestrial beings, virtually all humans continue to be essentially alien to themselves.

   We must recognize that this problem transcends religious matters and concerns every single human being.  We must also identify the roots of what drives us to be so violent when we are born so gentle; be so cold when we have such a rare and incomparable smile; hurt and destroy when we possess an incredible potential to love and create.

   First, let us recognize that everyone attempts or at least wishes to lead a happy and meaningful life.  We must also realize that only very few on Earth know much about the nature, essence, and purpose of each person, life and the universe.  This universal longing and this shared ignorance leave only wisdom and belief as a barrier between positive and negative behavior.

   It is widely accepted that behavior such as prejudice is a trait generally belonging to the ignorant.  However, we must admit that an overwhelming portion of the Earth’s population does not know who we are, what we are, where we come from, why we exist, where we go after our body dies, and other such millennial enigmas.  In spite of this, we have deeply embedded in our hearts a sort of universal common sense of good and bad, positive and negative.

   Some may argue that this feeling is absent in those who are judged as “bad” people.  It is very easy, perhaps satisfying, and definitely hypocritical to make such an assumption.  Are we to conclude next that some babies are evil and others are good?

  Except for those with certain serious mental disabilities, humans are born with the potential to dedicate themselves to positive or negative causes. In the absence of solid knowledge of our existence and essence, many of us seek happiness and a purpose in perverse or superficial ways.  There are also those who cannot find a purpose to live what so ever and take supposed refuge in addictive substances, life-threatening activities or even suicide.

  The individuals whose lives are centered upon negative behavior suffer greatly because they are lost and cannot find their way to happiness, because their actions remain deeply registered in their hearts.  Similar to Newton’s law of action and reaction, we hurt ourselves when we hurt someone else.

  Many of those who are fortunate to lead a mostly positive life are too busy to help the lost and simply point fingers at them.  But very few realize that regardless of how mean, greedy, violent, or deceitful one’s behavior is, we are all attempting to find happiness and a satisfying task one way or another.  Some do dedicate themselves to helping the lost and the miseducated, but it is a difficult task because it usually involves convincing others of something without them directly experiencing it.

  The best solution is to first find each other and ourselves by gaining knowledge about the consciousness (a.k.a. ego, inner self, intelligence and individuality principle, soul, spirit).  The reader may argue that it is not possible to obtain the knowledge that has been aforementioned. After all, there have never been direct means of studying the nature, essence, purpose, and existence of the consciousness.  This has been attempted throughout history and a sign of the failure of this effort is the creation of the different belief systems.

  However, in the last decades of this millennium, researchers have finally discovered the technology to uncover age-old mysteries and enable us to objectively study the extraphysical universe and the consciousness.  In fact, we have always possessed these tools, which are innate human abilities.  The tools used by Conscientiology and Projectiology (C&P), new sciences that study the consciousness, include the conscious projection or OBE (out-of-body experience) and bioenergy (chi, prana, vital energy) control and manipulation.

  The conscious projection allows us to access information about our past existence, our evolutionary process, and the “road map” we set ourselves for our current life.  With this information humans can live more focused on their task, their evolution and consequently feel more fulfilled.  It also contributes to a better understanding of the impact of our thoughts, sentiments, intentions, energy and actions on others and on ourselves.

  Negative behavior often occurs as a result of frustration, childhood problems, or lack of direction, hope or knowledge.  A clearer perspective and greater discernment shows that we are all souls with a common goal and a common evolutionary path and that we can gradually move away from negative behavior.

  This greater perspective offers a sense of concrete direction, purpose, and identity that will gradually reduce negative behavior because more humans will finally know that compassion, altruism, peace, love, and wisdom-seeking catalyze our consciential evolution and contribute to our happiness.

  Our reaction to negative manifestation is likely to change as well.  Holomemory (the recollection of all our experiences through a series of existences) shows that even the most pious consciousnesses have committed terrible acts that would shock them today.  Rather than maintaining the usual social dichotomy between the “good” and the “bad,” we will recognize “brothers and sisters” at different stages of consciential evolution. 

  By identifying ourselves even with the most disturbed consciousnesses, a stronger universal bond among humans should develop that will allow clarification and assistance to dominate over revenge, hypocritical finger-pointing, and isolation.  Consequently, judicial systems may undergo profound changes.  Perhaps our prisons will change into a sort of school and care center, and capital punishment will be discontinued.

  Our present concern should be making this knowledge available to the world.  Conscientiology and Projectiology, the sciences that study the consciousness and the conscious projection (out-of-body experience, OBE), do not fit the 300-year-old “materialist-reductionist-newtonian-cartesian-physicalist  paradigm” of science that assumes that the source of our intelligence and identity is physical - DNA, the brain.  It is clear to those who have experienced the conscious projection that the consciousness transcends the common parameters of physical energy (matter) and that our address is extraphysical.  This knowledge can be obtained directly by the individual through objective observations made during OBEs.

  Out-of-body experiences – lucid or, more commonly, unconscious – occur every night when the soma (physical body) is in a state of non-alignment with the psychosoma (non-physical body).  The OBE has been linked to mysticism throughout the ages because it could not be scientifically explained.  Today, with enough effort, courage, determination, and perseverance, it can be experienced and understood.  However, in order for the concepts of multidimensional reality and extraphysical consciousnesses to be accepted, an epistemological enhancement is inevitable.

  Many arguments that can be made against the credibility and reality of the conscious projection, but none can survive the overwhelming evidence gathered by researchers from all over the world, including Sweden, Brazil, the USA, and the UK.  These include Charles Tart, Janet Lee Mitchell, Robert L. Morris, Rick Stack, Robert Monroe (Monroe Institute), Michael Grosso, Waldo Vieira (International Institute of Projectiology & Conscientiology), Wagner Borges (IPPB, Institute of Projective and Bionergetic Research, Rio de Janeiro), William Buhlman, Geraldo Medeiros Jr, and Robert Peterson.   Now, we need to make these techniques known to the general public so that everyone is given the opportunity to access this potentially life-changing information about the individual, humankind and the universe.

  It is very important though, that conscientiology and projectiology are not confused with faith, mysticism, or esoteric practices as the out-of-body experience has been through history.  Historic records and scientific studies demonstrate that these experiences occur to individuals independent of their culture, religion, credo, age, sex, and socio-economic condition.  Consequently, it is time to begin to undo the age-old myths and misconceptions that have kept most of humanity ignorant on this issue.  It is time to advance and disseminate these critical scientific studies to gradually expand human maturity and self-awareness.

  In 2000, several provocative, non-conventional articles exploring issues greatly related to conscientiology research have been published in leading news magazines such as US News & World Report and Time.  These include articles on consciousness research, animal emotions, and modern concepts about hell.  However, Conscientiology has not been mentioned, yet.  After being introduced to Conscientiology and its possible applications and effects, the editors and science-and-technology reporters of these pioneering magazines are likely to publish articles about it.

  Research institutions and individuals can educate the people about this direct, personal experience that replaces or clarifies belief with direct knowledge.  The integration of conscientiology and projectiology into the university environment seems like an efficient dissemination strategy.  Universities may provide a favorable combination of experienced, conventional scientists and large, eclectic populations of more-open-minded students who reside in great proximity.  Students of various interests can discuss and investigate the sciences and pioneering professor-researchers can apply conscientiology to their studies and produce landmark results.  After the integration of Conscientiology in universities’ education and research programs, Conscientiology could be thought in high schools just as physics and chemistry.  With mounting scientific and technological results and increasing youth awareness a new human culture will emerge.

  It is important to realize that this process will probably take a long time to become a significant movement, depending on the effort and effectiveness of its pioneers in face of various challenges.  Even when this knowledge becomes common, no one should expect life to be “perfect”.  Life is likely to be happier and more positive, but as long as there are mistakes to be learned from and contributions to be made there will be a reason to live on Earth.  What we generally consider “a perfect world” does not need, include, or benefit the imperfect human being. 

  The consciential renaissance has begun to push the physical limits of human knowledge all over the world.  It is now only a matter of time for humankind to open its eyes to the beauty and benefits of the extraphysical universe where we all reside.  Now, more than ever, every individual has the opportunity to be in the cutting-edge of human exploration.  The consciousness and the extraphysical universe are the ultimate frontiers.
