LIFE ON ESSASSANI
November 1987: You said that you've been observing our culture for thousands of years?
I was speaking collectively. Not my society specifically, but many of the societies within the Association of Worlds have, yes.
Living the life that you're living now, do you experience time in the same linear dimension that we experience it?
Somewhat, but not exactly. Our ability to communicate with you right now shows that we experience it somewhat differently. For colloquially speaking, we are actually of your future. Therefore, in a sense you could say we are speaking backwards in time. Because we still have a physicality somewhat, the idea is that we do perceive motions of time to some degree. It is very pliable and malleable for us, because our society's transformation now involves going from physicality to complete non-physicality.
So from your viewpoint you can tell what the transformational age has accomplished?
Somewhat, here and there. Not everything will be apparent to us. Each time we tap into the flow we may perceive very different things. But some general overall patterns and flows are observable to us because of our vantage point.
I wonder if you could describe for us the planet on which you live; how large it is; how far it is from your central sun, the time periods for your year and your day... and some of the physical aspects of your life.
On a level from which you are able to perceive us physically, we consider ourselves to be beings similar to your own species, although somewhat different. Our physiological form is generally as follows: we are approximately 5 feet of height in your counting; white/whiteish-gray skin coloration; very wide upturned eyes. The pupil of our eye encompasses most of the eye, and because of our enlarged pupil it would appear as if our eyes are almost black. Actually they are not; most of them tend toward gray in coloration.
The males usually have no hair; females generally will have some, tending to be whitish in color, although there are exceptions. If you wish some type of comparative analogy between our civilization and a species of your civilization, you could use the idea of Mongolian and you would be close, but not exact. We are relatively slender, relatively frail as you would understand that idea, as we move from physicality to non-physicality.
In our ancient language, which we no longer use as we are telepathic, our planet is named Essassani. As our people are Sassani, and Es means place, this translates out in your language to "place of living light." Since it is our understanding that all beings are made of living light, we have called our world thus.
Our planet is not too dissimilar to your own, although a tiny bit smaller. What you would call our gravitational component is approximately 85% of your own. We do not really follow the flow of keeping track of time, but since we do have a physicalized world, and since a day is simply a single rotation upon its axis of the planet, we do have days. They are slightly longer than yours, approximately 25 of your hours. However, our year is much longer, being that we, in your terms, have an approximately 120 million mile radius from our central star. Thus our year is approximately 454 of your days of counting. Our sun is much hotter than yours; hence the diameter of our orbit is broader. Therefore, my age is approximately 139 of my years, but more like 160 of yours, allowing for the variation in our time stream.
Essassani is park-like and very green, our central star being yellowish-green. The idea is that we have no major structures on our planet at this time. In population, the majority of our civilization, which does not number very much -- at least not in terms of your world -- exists in what you would call city ships, or large space craft. The surface of the planet itself has been left more for recreational purposes at this time. With a very slight adjustment your species would find it most comfortable.
Our axis tilt is not very much -- approximately 3 to 4 degrees at the most. Therefore we maintain a relatively constant temperature. We do not have the wide variation in seasons that your civilization experiences. In fact it never varies more than 13 degrees around the average temperature of approximately 72 of our degrees Fahrenheit. The idea is that you would find it most comfortable. It would be a bit more rich in oxygen, to some degree. You may be a little lightheaded here for a while, but adjustments could be made.
Our permanent population is approximately between 200 and 250 million by your counting. There are many other species from other civilizations that come and go on our planet at various times for various reasons. Our city ships range anywhere from one to ten of your miles in length, and contain several hundred thousand individuals at a time. These ships and the large population on them is for the purpose of exploring different areas of the galaxy, for inter-dimensional penetration, and for communication with various civilizations. These make up what we call The Association of Worlds, numbering approximately 360 worlds so far. The ships are also for exploring and contacting new civilizations such as your own -- new to us, that is.
Could you tell us how far your planet is from us, and in what direction we would look to see where you're going to be?
Yes, however, you will not be able to see our star because we are in a different dimensional plane. While we are in our dimensional plane we cannot see your star either until we make the dimensional shift. However, if our dimension and your dimension were overlapped, you would find our star approximately 500 of your light years of counting in the direction of the constellation you call Orion.
Then can you tell me how many members are in The Association, Bashar?
Several billion, I think.
And how many in the triad?
If you mean in your world, our world and Sirius, then obviously several billion, since you have several billion of your own. There is no accurate count we can give you, for it is constantly fluctuating.
How many galaxies do you know of?
Galaxy is a collection of many solar systems. Your civilization and our civilization and the civilization of Sirius exist within one galaxy -- which is a collection, as you count them, of over one hundred billion stars -- and that is one galaxy.
You will find that there are other galaxies as well. Now, we have explored minutely into 5 galaxies at this time, including our own. And there are some representations from each of those that we know of in an overall Association. The majority of them with which our civilization is familiar, however, stem mostly from our own galaxy, from several different star systems within this galaxy. And as you may know, the Milky Way itself contains an infinite number of galaxies.
And how many intelligently populated planets are there in the Milky Way?
What you would perceive in your density, or close to it, is between 60 and 70 million. It fluctuates as well, but some are within that.
How many stars?
Over 100 billion.
You said once that you had directly investigated or interacted with 359 of them or so -- personally?
Not myself personally, but the Association; however, all of the 60 to 70 million inhabitation's do not belong to the Association. We are simply listing the inhabited planets that we are aware of -- most of which we have not contacted.
