Your Guide to Extraterrestrial Civilizations

What do we know about extraterrestrial civilizations, 
and how will interacting with them affect us?

Introduction to Xenology

This course looks at what we already can tell about extraterrestrial civilizations.
It explores new sciences like astrobiology, sociobiology, exopsychology, exotheology, etc. and compares what they say with what contact experiencers and whistleblowers say.
The course also looks at how openly interacting with extraterrestrial civilizations will affect our current culture and civilization on Earth.

What our students say

In a survey, when asked whether they would recommend this course, 100% of respondents replied they strongly agreed.

I loved how thought-provoking the material was to read.  It really expanded and enriched the way I think about extraterrestrial encounters because they have their own cultures, belief systems, biologies, ethics, technology and experiences, etc. that there is much to consider beyond the first, “Hello.”  An absolutely wonderful course and very thoughtfully pulled together.  Many thanks, Manuel, for being such an exceptional teacher.

What I liked best? The in-depth presentation of ET reality. Getting to further explore Xenoexistence through such a variety of factors including technology, culture, ethics, spirituality and archeology among others has been most enjoyable and edifying. I am so glad there are teachers like you who can collect and share this knowledge. It has been an honor and a privilege.

Course Description

If you didn't watch the video, and/or prefer a more academic description:

Introduction to Xenology consists of four parts. In the first part, we look at evolutionary xenology. It deals with astrobiology and phenotypes (what they look like), as well as with extraterrestial technology and biotechnology.

The second part deals with socio-political xenology. Here we look at extraterrestrial social systems and governments, at observed extraterrestrial behavior, and investigate to what extent an extraterrestrial presence could constitute a threat.

In the third part, the course deals with cultural xenology. We look at fields like psychology, science and arts, ethics and law, religion and spirituality.

The fourth part of the course deals with xenoarchaeology. Here we investigate archaeological evidence for an extraterrestrial presence, on and off-planet.

The course is offered by distance education in the form of weekly lectures received via the Internet, online course reading material and videos, and participant / instructor communication through a group discussion forum/email list.

IMPORTANT: this is an advanced course and is only open to students who have successfully completed Exo101!

We all need this knowledge and I am sure that those contemplating to take this course are already aware of it. They may already see themselves as intermediaries in our ET/human contacts. But the privilege of becoming one requires from such a person to obtain a better than average picture of these other worlds and the ability to foresee as accurately as possible the dynamics of our future interactions.
The added value of this new course is that it is advanced in its complexity, not only because of an increasingly complex picture of the field of exopolitics unfolding before us, but also to prepare us for contact with advanced minds we are going to encounter and wish to interact with on an equal ground. It gives the student additional strength needed to insist on such cooperation and possible coexistence that will ensure preservation of our independence and progress that will be in the interest of everybody involved.
This course is about self-enhancement and human emancipation in any sense of the word that future students may understand it.
