Oppenheimer’s Response to a Prompt from Aliens

One fascinating aspect of Oppenheimer’s life, omitted from the blockbuster movie, is his response to a prompt from alien representatives from higher planes of other planets in our solar system.

On June 10, 1954, The Daily Telegraph, a British newspaper, printed an article under the heading ‘Atom particle find excites U.S. physicists’ about a particle detected by scientists at the University of Chicago, which stated:

A photographic record has been obtained of an atomic particle, apparently from outer space, which it is estimated moved at a speed and energy of ten thousand billion volts…

Dr. Robert Oppenheimer, the atomic scientist recently held to be a security risk by the Atomic Energy Commission, said that this was the physics problem to which he now intended to devote his time. ‘It is trying to tell us something if we could read and understand it. Just what the particle is and what force it possesses nobody knows. When we understand what it is we will understand a lot more about the nature of physics.’

The particle tore through a pack of photographic plates carried in a high-altitude balloon over Texas, reportedly like a bullet through a pack of cards. The article continued:

Physicists speculate that the particle is something that nuclear scientists have been asking [about] for years, an anti-proton. This is the opposite to a proton, the core of a hydrogen atom…

In tearing through the film pack it is thought the anti-proton struck a proton and both were annihilated. For scientists the implication is that somewhere in the universe there exists a means of annihilating or converting into energy all the various kinds of matter known on earth.

The story gets really interesting when we find out how this particle got there.

A month prior to this newspaper report, Dr. George King, a Master of yoga living in England, had been contacted by an advanced extraterrestrial intelligence from a higher material plane of the planet Venus, known as Aetherius. This was Dr. King’s first such contact, but it was the beginning of over 40 years of communication with interplanetary beings from both inside our solar system and beyond.

During a channeling session shortly after this news report was published, the Master Aetherius was asked about the discovery of this antiproton and how it got there. There was presumably a hope that the Master Aetherius would be able to give insights into its origins.

The Master Aetherius responded:

we did arrange to bring about this bombardment by an atomic particle, the like of which cannot be found upon this Earth of yours.

We did this in order to give certain of your physicists a lead, so that this lead would help them to evolve, not only mathematical calculations, but also a philosophy superior to that which they hold at the present moment. We feel that certain of the physicists will know and recognise the fact that this particle cannot have been just floating about by chance, that in the beginning it must have been broken away from a molecular and atomic structure, because it is an anti-proton—a part of a particular kind of very fine matter not found in that way on Terra*.

*Note: ‘Terra’ is their word for the Earth.

From You Are Responsible by Dr. George King

So this particle was not there by chance. It was extraterrestrial beings who sent this particle through the photographic plates, and they did so explicitly so that scientists would have something to think about.

It would seem that Oppenheimer began to realize the significance of this antiproton, and therefore to regard it as an important facet of science that he wanted to understand. By deciding to dedicate his time to understanding its implications, he appears to have responded to this extraterrestrial prompting as they had hoped – presumably without his being even remotely aware of the existence of the extraterrestrials in question.

But this isn’t the only aspect of where the worlds of Oppenheimer and aliens may partially intersect.

Oppenheimer is, of course, most well known as the lead scientist in the Manhattan project that produced the atomic bombs detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945.

When the extraterrestrial beings, or Cosmic Masters as he referred to them, first began speaking through Dr. King in the 1950s, one of the key themes of their messages was that humanity needed to move away from atomic experimentation. They taught that the destructive effects of these murder weapons were much greater than we realized, affecting creation on seven octaves of manifestation, not just the octave our science is currently able to detect.

They were also worried about us taking the development of these weapons even further, to the point that we could destroy ourselves. They had, after all, already seen us do this. The human race has previously brought about the destruction of the civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria through atomic war. And even worse still, the destruction of Maldek, the planet which we lived upon before Earth. All that remains of Maldek now is the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Oppenheimer’s leadership of the development of the atomic bomb and his later investigation of this antiproton are two aspects of his life that are poles apart.

On the one hand, he has led humanity in the development of a weapon that is expressly at odds with the wishes of the advanced extraterrestrial beings in our solar system. Yet on the other hand, he has later led humanity in a positive way, by following their prompting to investigate the antiproton.

This is a story of the possibility of redemption. We all make mistakes in life but no matter how bad they are, we all have the chance to change and take a better direction. There is no such thing as eternal damnation; there is always the opportunity to begin to make amends.

In a way, this story is a microcosm of the story of the entire human race. Even though there were individuals at the helm, driving us towards our past mistakes, they were ultimately the mistakes of the human race as a whole and we all bear a certain amount of responsibility for them. These mistakes can’t be easily or quickly corrected, but we have to begin somewhere. We aren’t all scientists of Oppenheimer’s standing, but we can still all help the world in our own way.

We are still in a war of sorts today. Not like the Second World War of Oppenheimer’s time, although there is plenty of that kind of war going on now too. But more so, we are still in a war of love against hate. Love will win, it will ultimately always prevail. But we can help expedite that victory through spiritual action. We can pray. We can radiate love from our hearts to help heal and uplift; to raise consciousness and inspire humanity to move in a better direction.

To close, here is another extract from the Master Aetherius, also from You Are Responsible, about the need for spiritual optimism, regardless of the challenges we face:

You are not alone in your struggles—you have never been alone in your struggles for Spiritual supremacy. We have been aware, for centuries, of the tremendous battle now raging on Terra—a battle between basic materialism on the one hand, and Spirituality and enlightenment on the other hand.

Now, when some of you regard the apparent surface chaos of your Planet, you are apt to be despondent. Cast this despondency to the winds, for it is a useless garment—it could never keep you warm because the winds of doubt could blow through its coarse weave and you would freeze.

Discard your despondency!

Have courage, hope and faith that your most honourable aspiration will be fulfilled by a greater magic than any other magic—the magic that is brought about by the power within you.

    Fascinating and very timely post, Julian! It looks as though all roads eventually lead to The Aetherius Society!

    • Julian Rosser on July 29, 2023 at 2:03 pm

      Thanks Paul, yes the multifacetedness of the spiritual wisdom given through The Aetherius Society make it applicable to virtually everything in one way or another.

  3. peter daley on July 28, 2023 at 7:01 pm

    Thankyou Julian for that.
    Reminds me of the book “You Are Responsible” with information of the adventures concerning the threat of the Planetoid.
    I suppose you have all read it.

    • Julian Rosser on July 29, 2023 at 2:04 pm

      Thanks Peter – yes these quotes came from You Are Responsible which is an incredible book filled with some amazing gems of wisdom.

  4. Jack Stafford on July 29, 2023 at 1:29 pm

    Super well put together article! Hard for me to comprehend what it means in terms of Physics, one for the scientists. But the impact for society must be huge.

    Why was he a security risk by the way?

    • Julian Rosser on July 29, 2023 at 2:16 pm

      Thanks Jack. The Master Aetherius elaborated on what this antiproton’s existence signifies in the book You Are Responsible. It was too much to include here but it’s well worth a read – the implications are profound. It’s fascinating how the Cosmic Masters try to teach in different ways: by helping these physicists to understand things in this way and by providing spiritual teaching to other people in other ways. In terms of Oppenheimer’s security status, it was related to his views and there’s plenty about that online if you’re interested.

        Well done, Julian.

        I had a similar question or thought as Jack. It left me thinking about what the “positive” implications are of Oppenheimer investigating the antiproton. I guess I’ll have to read up on it!

        • Julian Rosser on August 1, 2023 at 2:56 pm

          Thanks Natalie. The Master Aetherius said it was the most important discovery made up to that point in all nuclear research. I can’t adequately sum up his explanation here, but it involves the sun, kundalini, UFOs and the unity of the planetary system – well worth reading up on indeed!

  5. Simon Fox on July 30, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    Thank you Julian for sharing this wisdom with us.

    This quote is particularly helpful to me at this time: “Have courage, hope and faith that your most honourable aspiration will be fulfilled by a greater magic than any other magic—the magic that is brought about by the power within you.”

    One more comment: The wisdom of a Cosmic Master may be infallible but our interpretation of their words is not. The comment by the Master Aetherius: “a battle between basic materialism on the one hand, and Spirituality and enlightenment on the other hand” may suggest to some that it is a matter of spirituality winning a battle against materialism. However, there is another interpretation—that spirituality and materialism are all part of the One Life and it is an enlightened reconciliation between them that will end the battle and bring peace.

      Thanks Simon, I’m glad it was helpful and thanks for your thoughts.

    Thank you Julian, for your brilliant article!

    I agree. We are in a spiritual war.

    Cant wait to read your new 2023 book: –
    “One Elephant: A Spiritual Journey to the Cosmos from the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair”

    “Its time to awaken. We are in the midst of a spiritual awakening and cleansing. Everything that hasn’t been working is coming to the surface so that it can be cleansed and healed. Like a wound that has pus, the pus needs to come to the surface so that it can be cleansed, and then the healing can begin. We’re seeing it in our healthcare, banks, schools, military, government, politicians, big pharma, religion, hate talk TV and radio, employment, homelessness, plus self. When we can put our hearts before greed we will be able to cleanse and heal. And we are seeing it”

    Fantastic write up, Julian. Well done! It is strange that though truth is limitless and knowledge is practically inexhaustible yet, many individuals continue to limit their scope and vision through fear, ignorance and orthodoxy. They need to RISE UP and rise above all limitations!

    • Julian Rosser on August 10, 2023 at 2:24 pm

      Thanks Mike – yes, we so often limit ourselves and I think we all need a reminder from time to time to rise above these.

    This article raises some interesting points in relation to the human conscience and morality.

    I notice that Oppenheimer was born on the 22nd day of the month, which implies to me the possibility of extreme challenges in life, of possible prominence in his chosen field, and yet also of the potential for a polarisation in terms of people’s perception of him and his works.

    In terms of Oppenheimer’s ‘redemption,’ I do wonder sometimes whether our limited human standpoint may differ markedly from how the law of Karma assesses issues of morality. We are told that the law of Karma is pluperfect, in which case it would be logical to presume that every single factor and outcome is assessed to the nth degree with a far greater vision and understanding of the whole than we are capable of. And of course, motive must surely be a major factor, which may not be apparent, or may be misconstrued.

    In Oppenheimer’s case, I think it’s only fair and logical to consider the context of the times he operated in, and the mental pressures he was subjected to when he and other scientists worked on the Manhattan Project. The moral problem for these people was that the genie had already been partly released from the bottle. Fission had already been discovered in Nazi Germany in 1938, which caused enormous alarm in the United States. This situation became more critical as Germany overran countries in Western Europe – benefiting from capturing a hydro plant in Norway which produced heavy water, the capture of a supply of uranium and from the capture of Neils Bohr. Although for various reasons the Nazi atomic bomb research floundered badly, this did not become clear to the Allies until very late in the war, and the threat was only properly alleviated in April 1945.

    Clearly though, the Manhattan Project scientists were fully aware at all times that whichever country first developed the bomb would win the war. One could argue therefore that if one had the capability to prevent it, it would have been immoral to have allowed the Nazis to develop the atomic bomb first, thereby winning the war, and condemning large swathes of the human population to continue to exist under, or to fall under, a barbaric authoritarian rule. Niels Bohr refused to cooperate with his captors, and later managed to escape via the Danish resistance. He then joined the Manhattan project to act as a consultant, believing that the Nazis had to be stopped at all cost.

    There’s also the moot point about how many lives would have been lost had the Americans been forced to invade mainland Japan to end the war – Churchill believed that a million American lives would have been lost, and a quarter of a million British lives. This does not take into account Japanese combatant and non-combatant casualties – estimates for these at the time ranged from several hundreds of thousands of deaths to as high as 10 million. One certainty was that Japanese combatants had already proven themselves to be a fanatical adversary..

    So in summary, I don’t think it’s totally clear cut in terms of judging the morality of Oppenheimer’s involvement with the Manhattan Project. Had the Americans not developed nuclear weapons first then the Soviets would have done so a few years later – they successfully tested their first atom bomb in 1949. The prospect of Stalin’s or Khrushchev’s USSR possessing nuclear capability and the west not having this is something which is extremely uncomfortable to contemplate. Very likely, western liberal democracies would have been crushed, and a Soviet Communist dictatorship would have succeeded where a Nazi dictatorship failed !

    Nuclear testing is a different subject matter – Oppenheimer was against the subsequent nuclear arms race, and tried unsuccessfully to constrain this through proposing early cooperative measures with Moscow.
