Your intellectual differences will be no small matter, either. All the extraterrestrials you will encounter, both positive and negative, are far beyond you intellectually. They not only use a greater portion of their brains than you, but most have brains that are unlike yours. Those with similar brains, the Pleiadians for instance, will be much easier for you to relate to than others.
Those with completely different brains will be alien indeed. Because of this, you will have little interaction with these types. They will perform certain duties behind the scenes and not be players in the drama unfolding on Earth. So, there will be both extraterrestrials known to you, and their helpers, who will remain unknown to you. These helpers are both physical and nonphysical.
Their intelligence puts the extraterrestrials at an advantage. They have studied your culture; some have even observed you for millennia. Many can speak your languages, and those who cannot could learn them in a matter of weeks. Communicating with you in language is hardly an issue, however, because their advanced intelligence allows for telepathy. They know how to stimulate certain centers in your brain, which enables you to receive their telepathic messages without your being telepathic. Therefore, they can communicate with you the same way they communicate with each other.
Misunderstandings still occur in telepathic communication, however. Certain differences create variances in translation of the telepathic communication, causing misunderstandings, although they are infrequent and usually minor. Misunderstandings are more likely to arise from differences in intelligence than from problems with translation. Cultural differences, of course, will also cause some misunderstandings. So you can expect some problems.
Because of their superior intelligence, all extraterrestrials are skillful at anticipating your responses to them and therefore capable of manipulating you. The positives manipulate you as a parent manipulates a child, to evoke a desired response. The difference between this kind of manipulation and that of the negatives is that the positives manipulate situations for your highest good, while the negatives' motives are always self-serving.
This analogy of parent and child is fitting in many respects. The positives have greater reasoning powers, more foresight and wisdom, more skills, and higher emotional development than humans. This makes them well suited to act as parents. Moreover, their advanced spiritual development gives them access to guidance from Spirit about your spiritual plan. Without this, their intelligence and wisdom might be misdirected.
This connection to Spirit is lacking in the negatives and is what makes them so dangerous. It makes them dangerous to themselves too because they make choices out of alignment with the Creator. To align with the Creator would mean accepting the Creator's help, which would go against their tenet of self-reliance.
As difficult as it may be for you to imagine what it means to be billions of years more advanced intellectually and emotionally, it is even more difficult for you to imagine what this means spiritually. You understand that spiritual development leads to becoming more like God: more loving, compassionate, and accepting. And you will feel this love, compassion, and acceptance from the positives. However, you still will not understand what they are experiencing—what it is like to be them. You will project your ideas about this on to them, but you will never grasp their experience.
We are telling you this because we want to put this in perspective for you. They are not like you. Not only are they not human—even if they were, their billions of years of development would still make them unrecognizable to you. So, please be careful about assuming that they are like you. They know what you are like, and they will accommodate you and speak to you in your terms. But this will be for purposes of communication, not because this is how they are.
They are so advanced that they can understand you and interact with you—an entirely alien race—on your terms! They have done this countless times before, in other worlds, and they will do this countless more times. They are carrying out their work here as you carry out your daily business, but their business is unimaginably more complex. This is not intended to elicit your awe or reverence, but to remind you that your understanding of them will be based on your projections, which are a product of your current state of consciousness.
