  • http://twitter.com/fulldisclosproj/status/1056229057178820609 SBA Media Release: In recent weeks, SBA Media has received information that infiltrators plan to sabotage the Majestic Masquerade & Above Majestic movie premiere event. Being that this is a highly emotionally charged environment, we have to take the safety of our guests into account. Since we can not know the true intentions of those who threaten, regrettably and after careful consideration SBA Media feels it is our responsibility to cancel the event. We would normally just hire more security, but being that this is a costume party it makes it difficult to police the environment properly and offer our guests the safety they deserve.

    The Film Above Majestic and SBA Graphic Novel represent Disclosure information entering the slipstream of the mass consciousness, so naturally we expected attacks from the general public regarding the topics being discussed, what we didn’t expect was these attacks to come with in our own community. One must wonder WHY such an organized concerted effort to attack the Graphic Novel and Above Majestic are happening and who/what is behind this mobilized front. We are asking everyone who would like to support Above Majestic to hold their own premiere event in their homes and invite friends, family and neighbors, and use the film as a platform for discussion. We are also asking everyone to spend time on Halloween in support of a mass meditation to counter the dark energy being harvested during the evening globally.

    We are asking everyone who would like to support Above Majestic to hold their own premiere event in their homes and invite friends, family and neighbors, and use the film as a platform for discussion. We are also asking everyone to spend time on Halloween in support of a mass meditation to counter the dark energy being harvested during the evening globally. In an effort to stop the attempts to further divide the community using the topics of trademarks SBA Media has also made the decision to not pursue the ‘SSP’ trademark. By choosing to not pursue this trademark it is our hope to offer healing and peace to the current tensions and growing misinformation that such trademarks could be used to “Stop Disclosure”. SBA Media had never attempted to trademark the words ‘Secret Space Program’ nor were we intending on using the trademark to control disclosure. I only wish to protect the details specific to my testimony and key phrases that I coined in the process of delivering it through my written updates. As SBA works with various groups to bring this content to the mass media, we will continue to enforce our trademark and copyright protection of the SBA IP throughout the development of all of these projects. The majority of the community has made it clear that they support us in the protection of our content, the true SSP narrative as well as our mission to take my testimony and other high consciousness content to the masses. We hope a clear understanding of our future plans and intentions has a calming effect on those in the community that were intentionally misled and triggered. We hope the gesture of abandoning our rights to the SSP trademark is one that can encourage healing and unification in our community.

    It is with great disappointment that we have had to choose to cancel our event in Boulder, but we feel this decision is the safest for our community. We look forward to the Mass Meditation Initiative in Washington DC, on November 11th . What brings us together is the desire for Full Disclosure. While we all forge our way through the chaos of what has never been done before, it is our hope that our common unity will always be greater than what attempts to divide us.

  • Questions for Corey Goode on Disclosure, Intellectual Property Rights, Trade Marks, and Similar SSP Testimonies.

    Q: Why did Corey Goode trademark terms like ‘Blue Avians’, ‘20 and Back’, ‘SSP’ (The letters ‘SSP’ not the words Secret Space Program), ‘Full Disclosure Project’ and others? Is he attempting to put a stranglehold on the disclosure community?

    Answer - Corey Goode: Recent social media posts regarding business decisions that I have made to protect my name, livelihood, story, and goodwill have seemed to cause a certain level of confusion within our community. Without a cohesive knowledge of—and transparency into—the exciting and complex web of my current creative projects and the legal means undertaken to protect those projects, it is easy to see how there could be some confusion. Recently, people have noticed through the public record that I have pending federal trademarks on certain phrases. Some have made assumptions into the motives behind this standard business legal practice—a practice that is widely utilized in the media industry (and quite honestly everywhere else including this one). Protection of one’s Intellectual Property is necessary in order to provide the consuming public with the proper assurances that they are getting content that is genuine, of high quality and from a certain particular source. The use of trademark, copyright, patent and trade secret protection (collectively known as “Intellectual Property” or “IP”) ensures that both the holder of the IP rights and the consuming/creating public are protected against harm that can be caused by those wishing to take advantage of our United States’ market-based system.

    My reason for filing the pending trademarks is simple: I filed trademarks on phrases and topics unique to my testimony for protection and for their use in graphic novels, feature films, and other media-based products.

    The terms I have trademarked are unique to my testimony and clearly protected under U.S. IP laws. We will not only fight to preserve my testimony and IP but also for the main mission of preserving the Full Disclosure narrative that most of us have been fighting for.

    This does not stop people from telling their own stories of twenty years in a clandestine/top-secret air or space-based government operation or delivering their brand of 'fan fiction'. They are just prohibited legally from the commercial use of the keywords associated with my testimony.

    We are not trying to “attempting to put a stranglehold on the disclosure community” by asserting our rights in our claimed phrases but we do have a right—and, a duty—to defend our testimony and intellectual property rights from other individuals and corporations attempting to profit off of our goodwill. Taking the secret space program topic mainstream and creating media that expands the consciousness of humanity as fast as possible is our main focus and goal.

    With that goal comes responsibility, and with that responsibility comes the need for protection. I am in no way attempting to slow or halt disclosure, in fact, quite the opposite. Media content around disclosure and consciousness topics is expanding significantly. If those in this community do not protect their information and narratives, they run the risk of being taken over by writers and producers in the entertainment industry who are constantly trolling our community for creative ideas.

    The more intellectual property that is stolen, misused and wrongfully profited from, the more we will see people in our community seeking these types of protections. We will find more researchers and experiencers quietly (to avoid public shaming) trademark their intellectual property in the coming months and years as they see other situations involving intellectual property play out.

    The information that our community delivers is already going from 'fringe' to mainstream very quickly. We are seeing more and more movies and television shows use material that is obviously from some of our biggest personalities in the Ufology and Higher Consciousness community.

    I understand the business side of bringing the topics of Full Disclosure and Expanding the Mass Consciousness makes many in this community uncomfortable. Most are working or even feel called to destroy the current financial control system and do all they can to take it down. The reality is, we need funding in order to get our message out. Without it, we cannot distribute our information, and everyone loses.

    Our mission is to infiltrate and use the tools of the enemy against them. We will make movies and other media that are used as anti-propaganda to awaken the masses and use the media as a way to ‘red pill’ them instead.

    This is a mission that is vitally important to the future timeline of humanity and one we hold in utmost importance. We are all putting our lives and reputations on the line. Both are regularly threatened by various entities and organizations that would attempt to control or oppose Full Disclosure and desperately want to sing the masses back to sleep.

    Answer - Roger Richards: We are on the precipice of a sea of change in consciousness on a global scale. If you take a look around the world right now, you will see that humanity as a whole has begun to wake up collectively. The great awakening is upon us all and it is beautiful. Every bit of life on this planet is teeming with the energy from the cosmos, everything is being brought to the surface, and we are revealing all to one another. Everyone has their own missions to fulfill in the Cosmic Karma of this all. Now—more than ever—each human being on this planet is being called to the mission of disclosure, it is unstoppable and spreading like wildfire. What is your mission? What dream have you not fulfilled? What brilliant ideas are you sitting on to bring into this world? Now is the time to create and manifest these things into every aspect of the matrix, business, finance, media, clothing, advertising, music, and art. We need to infect the programming of the matrix like a mass hack into the planetary consciousness. We need to co-opt the system against itself in order to bring it down as gently as possible with love and compassion.

    Q: If you are telling the truth about your testimony, wouldn’t other people step forward with the same testimony? Unless you are the only person in the ‘SSP’ and who experienced a ’20 and Back?’ So in sending a cease and desist to another whistleblower, are you not silencing them from sharing their own testimony? Regardless if you believe them or not, should they not be allowed to share their perspectives so we can discern the truth for ourselves?

    Answer - Corey Goode: The SSP Alliance and I knew others would step forward with similar testimony for sure. If they were real insiders they would not only be on the asset roles that the SSP Alliance has access to but would also know that certain information I have given in my testimony are phrases I was told to create to be associated with certain SSP terms and topics publicly.

    For example, the SSP Alliance knew that disinformation campaigns would be used against genuine insiders and used a common military intelligence tactic of taking a program name or topic, replacing it with a placeholder name and use that placeholder name as a part of the testimony. This is to give an extra layer of protection to the SSP Alliance, and their sources and methods, as well as keep the heaviest heat off of assets who are disseminating information to the public.

    For example, I was approached by a retired Air Force Surgeon, who I call ‘Bones’, who claimed to have been in a program that sounded exactly like the one I had described except he remembered it being called a different name. Furthermore, he was in the programs during the same time I was.

    So, when people come forward using some of the terms and project names I use it is an immediate red flag. I then follow up with the SSP Alliance to verify if the people were indeed in the programs. So far, Bones and one other are the only people that have passed that test. He chooses to remain anonymous for now but has been able to provide more information on this program than any in the SSP Alliance had known prior. He provided that program’s asset roles that went back nearly 80 years as well as vital intel about its organizational structure.

    I know as our movies begin to come out there will be more and more who use my testimony as a scaffolding upon which to attach their own narratives. This type of ‘Fan Fiction’ will only increase. This is dangerous to the true Full SSP Disclosure narrative but is something that will continue. Those who chose to create these stories will have to do so without using my testimony and protected terms and content. The only way I can ensure that the community receives the true and correct testimony that I have brought forth is by way of policing its quality standards and use.

    My Only Regret Is That I Didn’t Find This Practice Twenty Years Ago „
    Why I Learned Transcendental Meditation Three Years Ago And Why I Still Practice It „
    6 Benefits Of Transcendental Meditation (And How You Can Get Started Today) „

    Jesus was once asked when the kingdom of God would come. The kingdom of God, Jesus replied, is not something people will be able to see and point to. Then came these striking words: “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21) With these words, Jesus gave voice to a teaching that is universal and timeless.

    Look into every great religious, spiritual, and wisdom tradition, and we find the same precept — that life’s ultimate truth, its ultimate treasure, lies within us.

    As Jesus made unambiguously clear, we can experience this inner treasure — and no experience could be more valuable. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” he declared, “and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33). From this interior plane of life, he is saying, we will gain all that is needful.
    Aristotle

    Aristotle

    This inner treasure of life has had many names. Plato refers to it as the Good and the Beautiful, Aristotle as Being, Plotinus as the Infinite, St. Bernard of Clairvaux as the Word, Ralph Waldo Emerson as the Oversoul. In Taoism it is called the Tao, in Judaism Ein Sof. Among Australian aborigines it is called the dreamtime, among tribes of southern Africa Hunhu/Ubuntu. The names may differ, but the inner reality they point to is one and the same.

    In every case, it’s understood that this inner, transcendental reality can be directly experienced. This experience has likewise been given different names. In India traditions it is called Yoga, in Buddhism Nirvana, in Islam fana, in Christianity spiritual marriage. It is a universal teaching based on a universal reality and a universal experience.

    Over the past 20 centuries, leading Christian figures have written extensively on this inner kingdom of God and their personal experience of it. Here are just a few brief excerpts from a collection of many:

    St. Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335–394 • Turkey)

    Gregory of Nyssa, an early Christian theologian, was one of the four great fathers of the Eastern Church and served as Bishop of Nyssa, in the center of modern-day Turkey.

    [The soul] leaves all surface appearances, not only those that can be grasped by the senses but also those which the mind itself seems to see, and it keeps on going deeper until by the operation of the spirit it penetrates the invisible and incomprehensible, and it is there that it sees God. The true vision and the true knowledge of what we seek consists precisely in not seeing, in an awareness that our goal transcends all knowledge. . . . [1]


    St. Augustine (354–430 • Algeria)

    St-AugustineSt. Augustine, regarded as one of the towering intellectual geniuses in history, wrote more than a thousand works on philosophy, psychology, theology, history, political theory, and other subjects. His Confessions, from which the following passage is taken, has remained a popular and influential work for almost 1,600 years.

    I entered into the innermost part of myself. . . . I entered and I saw with my soul’s eye (such as it was) an unchangeable light shining above this eye of my soul and above my mind. . . . He who knows truth knows that light, and he who knows that light knows eternity. Love knows it. O eternal truth and true love and beloved eternity! [2]

    And I often do this. I find a delight in it, and whenever I can relax from my necessary duties I have recourse to this pleasure. {I experience] a state of feeling which is quite unlike anything to which I am used — a kind of sweet delight which, if I could only remain permanently in that state, would be something not of this world, not of this life. But my sad weight makes me fall back again; I am swallowed up by normality. [3]


    St. Gregory the Great (540–604 • Italy)

    St-Gregory-GreatBorn into an eminent Roman family and heir to a large fortune, Gregory decided to become a monk. After he became Pope at the age of 50, he devoted himself to social causes, the first pope especially known for doing so. He reformed the mass and introduced the ritual plainsong known today as the Gregorian chant. He was also a noted theologian. His book, Morals on Job, from which the following passage is taken, influenced religious thought for centuries.

    The mind of the elect . . . is frequently carried away into the sweetness of heavenly contemplation; already it sees something of the inmost realities as it were through the mist . . . it feeds on the taste of the unencompassed Light, and being carried beyond self, disdains to sink back again into self. . . .

    Sometimes the soul is admitted to some unwonted sweetness of interior relish, and is suddenly in some way refreshed when breathed on by the glowing spirit. . . .

    When this is in any way seen, the mind is absorbed in a sort of rapturous security; and carried beyond itself, as though the present life had ceased to be, it is in a way remade in a certain newness [it is refreshed in a manner by a kind of new being . . . ]. There the mind is besprinkled with the infusion of heavenly dew from an inexhaustible fountain. [4]


    Johannes Tauler (1300–1361 • France)

    Johannes Tauler was one of the most influential German spiritual writers of the 1300s. Martin Luther honored Tauler as a primary influence, and Tauler has exerted a profound influence on religious thought ever since. As one scholar remarked, “Tauler presents the Christian tradition in its purest form.” [5]

    The soul has a hidden abyss, untouched by time and space, which is far superior to anything that gives life and movement to the body. Into this noble and wondrous ground, this secret realm, there descends that bliss of which we have spoken. Here the soul has its eternal abode. Here a man becomes so still and essential, so single-minded and withdrawn, so raised up in purity, and more and more removed from all things. . . . This state of the soul cannot be compared to what it has been before, for now it is granted to share in the divine life itself. [6]


    St. Teresa of Avila (1515–1582 • Spain)

    St-teresa-avilaSt. Teresa was one of the greatest women of the Roman Catholic church. Her books are considered masterpieces. St. Teresa initiated the Carmelite Reform, which restored the original contemplative character of the Carmelite order. In 1970 she was Doctor of the Church — one of just 33 individuals, and the first woman, to be so honored by the Catholic church.

    My soul at once becomes recollected and I enter the state of quiet or that of rapture, so that I can use none of my faculties and senses. . . .

    Everything is stilled, and the soul is left in a state of great quiet and deep satisfaction. [7]

    From this recollection there sometimes springs an interior peace and quietude which is full of happiness, for the soul is in such a state that it thinks there is nothing that it lacks. Even speaking — by which I mean vocal prayer and meditation — wearies it: it would like to do nothing but love. This condition lasts for some time, and may even last for long periods. [8]


    Thomas Merton (1915–1969 • United States)

    After completing a masters degree in English at Columbia University in New York, Merton entered the Abbey of Our Lady of Gethsemani, in Kentucky, as a monk. He was later ordained as a priest. He published more than 15 books of spiritual writings, poetry, fiction, and essays, and participated in movements for social justice and peace. He took great interest in the religions of the East, particularly Zen, for the light they shed on the depth of human consciousness. From the seclusion of the monastery, he exerted a worldwide influence.

    In the following passage Merton describes the experience of “contemplation.” He uses the term not in the current sense (thinking intently about something) but in its older sense, to describe the experience of transcending thought:

    The utter simplicity and obviousness of the infused light which contemplation pours into our soul suddenly awakens us to a new level of awareness. We enter a region which we had never even suspected, and yet it is this new world which seems familiar and obvious. The old world of our senses is now the one that seems to us strange, remote and unbelievable. . . .

    A door opens in the center of our being and we seem to fall through it into immense depths which, although they are infinite, are all accessible to us; all eternity seems to have become ours in this one placid and breathless contact. . . .

    You feel as if you were at last fully born. [9]

    A technique for transcending

    Readers who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique will recognize in these passages clear descriptions of transcending — the natural phenomenon of mental activity settling down, like waves settling on an ocean. Consciousness reaches its most silent state, serene and unbounded. We experience pure consciousness. We realize that this is our true Self, beyond time and space, infinite and eternal.

    We now know, from extensive scientific research studies, that during Transcendental Meditation practice, during the experience of transcendence, brain functioning becomes integrated, physiological activity settles down, and one experiences a unique state of restful alertness, a fourth major state of consciousness Maharishi calls Transcendental Consciousness.

    Here is how Maharishi describes the technique:

    Transcendental Meditation is just the simple technique of going within, and there you are! To go within is so simple; it is so natural for every man to go to a field of greater happiness. . . .

    And how can it be simple? The question arises because constantly I am emphasizing its simplicity. All this message of the inner life and outer life is not new, the same age-old message of the Kingdom of Heaven within. “First seek ye the Kingdom of God and all else will be added unto you.” It is the same age-old, centuries old message, but the message emphasizes today that it is easy for everyone. Without exception, born as man, every man has the right, the legitimate right to enjoy all glories that belong to him, all glories of the inner world and all glories of the outside world. And here is a process every man can directly experience for himself. [10]
