We invite you to join us
on an adventure that will change your view of life, of consciousness,
and of what is possible. We are establishing full communication
with the ancient, intelligent cetacea, and are going on to live
in space with free access to our solar system and beyond. We have
the knowledge and means to create a loving, abundant and free
way of life for ourselves and our children.
And it is happening Now.
The Sirius Institute is
a tax-exempt research and development partnership creating the
"Dolphinization of the
Planet" and the "Humanization
is raising the level of human consciousness to that of the dolphins
and integrating the consciousness of the dolphins and other cetacea
with human consciousness. The dolphins and other cetacea are intelligent,
loving beings that have much to show us. The benefits of merging
our two worlds range from creating harmonious societies, to profound
insights into the nature of all consciousness, to creating sound
and intelligent children.
of Space" is taking the best of human experience, culture
and consciousness into space, our next home. Learning to live
in space expands our consciousness to encompass both earth and
the spaces around us as our backyard. We are helping to develop
the best means of space access and life support so that we can
fare at will and whim throughout the solar system and beyond.
We are on the verge of a major change in the sources of energy
and means of propulsion needed to achieve this goal. Space access
for all will revolutionize the way we see the Earth, create abundance,
and open a new home for humans and cetacea, and spread humanity
and all Earth's life into the rest of the Universe.
Of all the goals I can
imagine, these fire the imagination. We can speak to and live
with beings with a society of immense antiquity and whose love
for humans has been sung in story for centuries - the dolphins.
Dolphins were so revered
by the ancient Greeks that their most sacred temple was dedicated
to them - the oracle at Delphi - "dolphin". In ancient
Greek, the root meaning of dolphin is "the womb of all".
What treasures of knowledge
await us? The benefits to all of us will be immense. Of all the
things we may learn, I feel at this juncture, the most important
may be the spur the dolphins can give us all toward - love, harmony,
playfulness and an appreciation for this marvelous Universe.
Our adventure is creating
new research, knowledge, inventions and products that will transform
many areas of our society and revolutionize how we see ourselves
and how we will live on and off the planet.
And the second goal, humanizing
space, to give us the liberty of the solar system and plant our
feet firmly on the path to the stars - is the one material step
among many possible that will ensure the survival of our kind
even beyond the death of our sun. The great diaspora has begun.
We can achieve the solar system and beyond!
The benefits of both these
enterprises are obvious and multiple. We will learn from the cetacea
true knowledge of our origin and history and forge an alliance
with the largest minds on Earth. By emulating the cetacea we can
have harmonious societies and happy children. By learning their
ways of healing, we can restore those ill in body and heart. We
will have harmonious music and co-species art leading to a rich
multi-species culture. We will have telepathy and provable communication
with beings that love us. This will end the "great loneliness"
spoken of by Loren Eisley. Or begin "The Great Oneness",
as Paradise would say.
Along with access to the
solar system, we will see the end of the era of fossil fuels,
an end to the age of wheels, and abundant energy and a rich life
for all. Let the dolphins and the humans go to space together,
bringing the finest of our integrated consciousness and cultures.
We will have the stars and a loving companion species with which
to share them -- Most certainly a grand and excellent adventure.
Let it be so.
