From 2005 - 2008 there was an attempt by many of us to sign a petition and deliver it (which it was) to the U.N. regarding extraterrestrial open contact and create a new law.

In 1969, at the time we landed on our Moon, a law was created in order to protect us against the potential of exposure to any alien life form. This law is called the Extraterrestrial Exposure Law and it is Federal Regulation Title 14 Section 1211. This Law says (generally speaking) if we should come into contact with any life form from off of our world we are subject to quarantine, fines, and imprisonment. In 1991, this law was officially removed and reserved. It is my understanding that "reserved" means it can be reinstated at any time and without our permission. We aren't interested in removing a law that is already removed: it is our intention to create a new law, the Open Contact Law.

Since the extraterrestrials deemed that we would find this unpleasant, they have for the most part stayed away. Our planet was quarantined. We had to be allowed to find our own way. There are a few civilizations that have had individual contact (from time to time), but it has not been permitted for them to interfere, to do anything FOR us, to make mass landings, and so forth. But, we're talking now about open contact now that is welcomed and acknowledged by the majority on our planet. A window for transition is soon approaching.

2012 will be signal a drastic shift in our planet as we will no longer be "off limits" to extraterrestrial beings. At that time ships CAN land. And as time continues, between 2015-2025, there will be more and more opportunities for individuals to see ships and begin direct interaction with extraterrestrials. Therefore, we will have to be more centered, more clear, personally empowered, have worked through our own fear issues and operate FROM OUR HEARTS, and be able to see all these beings as our equals so that we can decided what we truly want with them. We have to know that everything is in our own hands.

It is vital that we alter the Extraterrestrial Exposure Law so that it does not in any way create a punitive action for contact with extraterrestrial life, but - more importantly - that we create a new law, an OPEN CONTACT LAW, that each and every one of us are willing to begin from this day forward to get together, research, learn, educate, and form the law, itself. Write it up and get it passed by our governments so that they will acknowledge, allow, and approve of open contact between our world and extraterrestrials who have announced peaceful intentions of interactions with us. In this way, when we create this law and have it officially backed, by as many nations as possible on our planet, by 2012, it will go a long way towards accelerating extraterrestrials to have open contact with us.

Extraterrestrials must respect the laws that exist on our planet because we have decided that these are the laws by which we will abide. From 2005-2012 we've had and have a great window of opportunity to create and adopt, sign on, acknowledge, and accept this law of open contact for all extraterrestrials seeking open peaceful contact with us that will open the door for such contact because the majority of us have said it is alright to do this. And this will make all the difference in our world in the ET's ability to interact more openly with us.

Then, once that door has been opened, the only criteria remaining that will determine the rate at which contact can then occur will be the rate at which every one of us gets in touch with our own fear, misgivings, hesitations and doubt about such contact and what it might mean for us personally and collectively. But then, at least, we will have dropped one barrier for such contact, an important barrier that extraterrestrials MUST abide by. We are the laws of our world. If you are willing to do this, word it, work together, collect the signatures needed for a law to pass in each nation, then please get to work now. This is in our hands, and the challenge and responsibility is UP TO US.

On behalf of the world citizens and the Association of Worlds (who greatly assisted in this creation), thank you very much. [August 14, 2004]
