Our environment is an integral part of who and what we are. Without an environment, we would not exist.
The first level of duality, the experience of individual consciousness, is that of "I and environment".
For a long time, we lived our lives with the knowing that our environment is simply an extension of our own selves. This fact is still very much alive within certain people's of the Earth. The knowing that our environment totally reflects what and who we are at all times.
At some point in our history, our environment was severed from our sense of self. From that moment, our environment has been seen as something external to the individual, something to be conquered, ordered and controlled. This directly corresponds to ourselves then having been conquered, ordered and controlled by "someone else". We did this in order to have an experience of separation from each other and to experience power over others (including environment as "other"). That experience of separation is now coming to an end, and we are now ready to graduate into a larger, more powerful and aware experience of life in the physical universe. Part of this process is figuring out how to re-integrate all aspects of "environment" back into ourselves.
We have decided to put ET relationships here in Environment because ET's Ultra- Dimensionals and Ultra-Terrestrials are very much part of our greater community. We will see how far we can take direct communication with those species that are friendly to our race, and those who are not.
