Humanity is the collective of human consciousness, but what is human consciousness?
Modern humans (Homo sapiens primarily ssp. Homo sapiens sapiens) are the only extant members of the hominin clade, a branch of great apes characterized by erect posture and bipedal locomotion; manual dexterity and increased tool use; and a general trend toward larger, more complex brains and societies. Early hominids, such as the australopithecines whose brains and anatomy are in many ways more similar to non-human apes, are less often thought of or referred to as "human" than hominids of the genus Homo. Some of the latter used fire, occupied much of Eurasia, and gave rise to anatomically modern Homo sapiens in Africa about 200,000 years ago. They began to exhibit evidence of behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago, and migrated in successive waves to occupy all but the smallest, driest, and coldest lands. In the last 100 years, this has extended to permanently manned bases in Antarctica, on offshore platforms, and orbiting the Earth. The spread of humans and their large and increasing population has had a profound impact on large areas of the environment and millions of native species worldwide. Advantages that explain this evolutionary success include a relatively larger brain with a particularly well-developed neocortex, prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, sociality, and culture through social learning. Humans use tools to a much higher degree than any other animal, are the only extant species known to build fires and cook their food, as well as the only extant species to clothe themselves and create and use numerous other technologies and arts.
Humans are uniquely[disputed] adept at utilizing systems of symbolic communication such as language and art for self-expression, the exchange of ideas, and organization. Humans create complex social structures composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families and kinship networks to states. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of values, social norms, and rituals, which together form the basis of human society. The human desire to understand and influence their environment, and explain and manipulate phenomena, has been the foundation for the development of science, philosophy, mythology, and religion. The scientific study of humans is the discipline of anthropology.
Humans began to practice sedentary agriculture about 12,000 years ago, domesticating plants and animals, thus allowing for the growth of civilization. Humans subsequently established various forms of government, religion, and culture around the world, unifying people within a region and leading to the development of states and empires. The rapid advancement of scientific and medical understanding in the 19th and 20th centuries led to the development of fuel-driven technologies and improved health, causing the human population to rise exponentially. By 2014 the global human population was estimated to be around 7.2 billion.
Defining humans in terms of biological classification rather than in terms of consciousness, Wikipedia effectively reduces the idea of being human to extremely reductionistic notions, with anthropological extrapolations to attempt to construct a "history" of human evolution that humans cannot escape from — as if victims of the causality of "the past".
The idea that agriculture is what "allow[ed] for the growth of civilization", by which "humans subsequently established various forms of government, religion, and culture around the world, unifying people within a region and leading to the development of states and empires" reduces the idea of "civilization" to a dark tangential primitive barbarian epoch of human evolution — because "unifying" people under a dominator culture by means of violence (which is what states and empires are) is hardly a positive unification, but rather an attempt at control and the making of tools out of humans.
According to Bashar, the cause of the exponential rise in the human population has more to do with souls incarnating to be part of the transformation of human consciousness that Wikipedia and its "authoritative sources" are completely missing due to operating under the objective reality delusion (and physicalism) and the "authority" delusion.
The human condition
Humans on planet Earth have been disempowered to such an extent that most of us believe, consciously or unconsciously, that we are unworthy:
Bashar on Self Value, Worthiness and Fear
Our minds have essentially become enslaved to a "consumer culture". We hardly bat an eye when we are collectively referred to as "consumers"...

We are, however, quite evidently and quite obviously, awakening from the many illusions we have been under, and breaking the spells that have been cast upon us, in an accelerating fashion. The largest illusion is the illusion of separation, which gives birth to the objective reality delusion, which gives birth to physicalism (fundamentalist-materialism), which gives birth to historically-tangential evolutionary epochs such as "playing with power" by means of the belief in external "authority".
One of the methods that has been used to divide human consciousness and foster apparent differences is the idea of specialization. Asking a child "what do you want to be as a grown-up?" is perhaps the most obvious reflection of this mental trap.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
As Bashar says, we are learning to become generalists rather than specialists. Beings in the higher densities (higher dimensions) experience much more space and much less time (more timelessness), while beings in the 3rd density and below experience less space and more (the idea of) time. Beings in the 2nd density (all organisms except homo sapiens and cetaceans, i.e. dolphins and whales) are all specialists at being what they are, not having a volumetric awareness as part of their experience of physical reality. The same goes for non-metabolic consciousness experiencing itself in the 1st density (stone consciousness, or molecular consciousness), which experiences very little space and a lot of time (in the scale of millions and billions of years).
Lost/hidden human history
If a civilization like Atlantis or Lemuria existed, how come there is very little physical evidence of it? The idea might be that human consciousness "collapsed into" a lower density of physicality that has far more built-in limitation and whose geophysical "history" does not reflect the idea of an Atlantis or Lemuria. If Bashar is to be believed, however, we are closer to discovering Atlantean history than we imagine...
The chambers of the Great Pyramids and Sphinx
The secret of the Sphinx and Atlantis
A secret lies hidden under the mysterious Sphinx of Egypt. The famous psychic of the 20s, Edgar Cayce, saw in one of his trances that this monument preserves the lost history of the Atlantean civilization.
Bashar has made predictions about the discovery of the chambers underneath the Sphinx:
Bashar - Hidden Chambers in Sphinx and Pyramids
An excerpt from Bashar in "Denial, Separation, and Projection". 07-19-98 Suffield, CT
Bashar has stated numerous times that when the chamber underneath the Great Sphinx are opened and its contents revealed, we will understand much more about our true history, as well as Atlantean history. In the above video Bashar stated that there was a "chamber about to be opened, near the paw of the Sphinx, underneath, about 15 feet down underground", and that "agreements are now being made, discussions are now being had", and that it is most likely to happen "within the next 2 to 3 years of your time", i.e. 2000 to 2001. Despite saying that this time it will "absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt" not be hidden from the public, because "the individuals involved will see that this is so" because there are "individuals of high integrity involved", this did not happen — the discovery has not yet been made, or has not been revealed to the public. Bashar's prediction correlates closely with Edgar Cayce's prediction of this discovery happening around 1998.
In Bashar's 2013-07-06 transmission, titled The Fifth Law, he says that the Sphinx is sitting on an "underground chamber of mysteries and secrets", in the same way as Anubis, who was most often represented in ancient Egyptian society as sitting on a box, which is what the Sphinx "originally was", Bashar says, when it was created 10,500 years ago (a dating which aligns with the Orion correlation theory).
The dating is in concordance with most beyond-mainstream human researchers, e.g. Robert Temple; however, researcher Robert Schoch, on the other hand, suggests it was not Anubis but the lioness Mehit, based on hieroglyphic representations.
As researcher Robert Bauval writes:
The hope of finding a secret chamber in the Giza Plateau, the home of the Great Pyramid and the Great Sphinx, has never been so high. As I write these words (late February 2014), Egyptians have gone to the ballot boxes and voted in favor of a new constitution. Soon presidential elections will take place, to be followed immediately by the formation of a parliament. A new Egypt is in the making, and hopefully along with it a new and more open-minded Ministry of Antiquities. For nearly three decades any real and significant progress in the quest for the secret chambers at Giza and the lost knowledge of the great pyramid builders of Egypt has been thwarted by the “king of the pyramids,“ the larger-than-life and loudmouthed ex-minister of antiquities, Zahi Hawass. In July 2011, however, Hawass was dethroned by his own people, and the coast is now clear for the search to begin again.
Yet we need to backtrack into the origins and history of this quest in order to fully understand the true mystery and magnitude of what may indeed be brought to light at Giza. For the story that I am about to tell is as strange as it is controversial. It is the story of an age-old mystery that has haunted the imaginations of seekers from generation to generation and that, in recent years, has split the scholarly establishment and caused academic furor and debate around the world. To some it is the stuff of dreams, figments of a ripe imagination, a myth at best, a delusion at worse. To others it is a real possibility, a near-certain historical reality, a tangible fact that will soon be confirmed by the turn of a spade or the drilling of an auger. For it is a very real possibility, indeed, that deep inside the oldest, the largest, the tallest, the most sacred monument on this planet, lies a heavily guarded secret. Inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, wrapped in some unearthly darkness and standing in hallowed stillness, could be a secret chamber or chambers, waiting, at any minute now to be opened after at least four if not many more millennia.
This chamber could be the supreme archaeological prize, the jackpot of Egyptology that may by far surpass the discovery of Tutankhamun’s intact tomb in 1922. But wait, there is more. The Giza Plateau, it very much seems, has finally decided to disclose all its secrets at once. For not far from the Great Pyramid, in a shallow enclave to the east broods the Great Sphinx. It, too, may mulishly be guarding the ultimate treasure trove under its belly: the legendary “Hall of Records“ of a civilization long lost in the mists of time.
The location and possible entrances to such secret chambers in the Great Pyramid and under the Great Sphinx have been known since early 1993. Yet, as amazingly frustrating as it sounds, all attempts to confirm the existence of these possible secret chambers have been forcefully prevented by Zahi Hawass. Or have they really? Could clandestine attempts have been made away from the public eye and, as strange as it may be, from the eyes of the Egyptian authorities themselves? Is that at all possible? Is there a conspiracy afloat here, one that may implicate not just Hawass but other individuals and institutions?
Bashar not only answers Bauval's question (with a "this and that"), but also reveals the methodology by which to actually open the chambers, once found:
Some of these have actually already been discovered, and hidden, from the public; but most have not, for it is not yet quite time for some of its mysteries to be revealed; but there are still several there in the underground box in secret chambers that have yet to be opened, and will not be opened until a deeper understanding is had of frequency, of resonance, of ratio, and proportion. And when the right song is song, and the right vibration resounds, the box will reveal its secrets one after the other. This may occur any time between now and the year you call 2050. It depends upon exactly the rate of acceleration in your society, the rate of ascension, what happens with respect to contact between your world and other civilizations in the contact window between 2025 and 2033 — for even contact will not necessarily be the right time for the revelation of some of the mysteries in the box under the Sphinx. But it will come.
In a 3-day Bashar event during the 2014 summer solstice, on 2014-06-20, Bashar described a permission slip to merge the ideas of lucid dreaming and the waking dream, and described in great detail how to open the Sphinx chambers, and how ancient civilizations (including the Atlanteans, Egyptians, and Mayans) would go out of body and explore the universe:
Many people on your planet have been a little bit... "puzzled", by things they have found in certain structures, such as the Great Pyramid in your Giza area, where you find in what you call the king's chamber a stone coffer, a stone box. Most of you now understand, this is not and never was used as an actual sarcophagus. What this was used for, along with similar stone boxes found in other structures, other temples, other pyramids, around your planet, whether they were used for sarcophagi or not — many of these stone boxes, you will find, are of certain specific dimensions, that are usually connected to golden proportions, phi ratios — natural increments like that, that are represented in nature, and what many of these stone boxes were actually used for, were to actually bring about, to trigger, out-of-body experiences.
When you lie down, in some of these stone boxes, and in particular the one in the pyramid at Giza, and you allow yourself to go into a meditative state, and allow yourself to align with what is called the gamma frequency in your brain, which is forty cycles per second, 40 Hertz — the gamma frequency — you set up an actual resonating harmonic in the box, which is designed to amplify and magnify the gamma frequency.
By setting up that feedback mechanism, by giving off that frequency, and letting it resonate back and forth within the box, it magnifies and amplifies, magnifies and amplifies, magnifies and amplifies, and before you know it, pop. You're out of your body.
This is how the ancients explored the universe. It is true that sometimes information was delivered to many of the ancient cultures on your planet by some extradimensional or extraterrestrial beings; however, don't discount the fact that many of the shamans and many of the priests in the ancient cultures actually were more than capable of getting a lot of the information themselves, by simply going out of body and exploring the universe and going where they needed to go to download information when they needed it. This is an ancient art that was done all the time — ancient form of space exploration, both outer space and inner space, where they could come and go at will, by using these sarcophagi, these amplifying boxes, to propel themselves out of body, and go on these excursions to find out the information they need that would be of great benefit, to the people of your worlds.
So, if you can recreate, in some fashion, in the appropriate resonating material, be it stone, or metallic alloys, or certain forms of wood — we will alow you to do your own experimentation on this — but in the appropriate ratios, in the appropriate proportions, that you can glean off the sarcophagi in the Great Pyramid, you will then be able to lie down in that box, that you create, with no top, and making sure it is of the correct proportions, going into the meditative state, the gamma state, 40 cycles per second, and allowing yourself to begin to experience that resonant frequency, the more you allow yourself to practice this, the faster you will find yourself going out of body, either immediately while you are meditating in the box, or you will find that it will set up a frequency within you, so that when you are going to sleep it will make it easier for you to have the lucid experience of knowing you are out of your body, and thus being awake in the dream.
So these are two techniques that can aid and assist you in beginning to become more aware, more conscious in the non-physical realms, and by so doing, paradoxically, actually become more conscious in the physical dream, which is only a projection of your consciousness, and is happening in your consciousness anyway. Because there is nothing "out there" — it's all "in here".
The evolution of homo sapiens
The evolution of humanity in the thematically "positive" ascensional timelines would be toward a Homo galacticus or Homo divinicus, while that of the transhumanism timelines could perhaps be called Homo sapienoid — an "upgraded" Homo sapiens that has been "merged with" (or incorporated into) a centrally-controlled hive-mind "artificial intelligence" system. A version/branch of these will go on to become the Greys, or some variation of that idea. We ignore the message of the Greys, and the interactions they have had with countless thousands (millions?) of Humans all over the planet, "at our own peril".
According to Bashar and TReb, human DNA is a blending of the DNA of 7 different races, including Anunnaki, Grey, Sirian, and Pleiadian genes. Furthermore, 5 of those 7 are hybrid races, so in a sense there are 12 different races that connected themselves to humanity by way of DNA:

Adronis from Sirius shares the Sirian perspective on human DNA:
Adronis - Downloads from Sirius: Revealing Insight on our DNA
[Published on Jul 8, 2014] Adronis, channeled by Brad Johnson, speaks on revealing deeper understandings of insight representing much of the mysteries and universal potenital of our own DNA and how it connects with many levels of consciousness. Adronis also speaks more on how DNA activation is accelerated through an individual.
Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature, unaware that the Nature he is destroying is this God he is worshipping.
Man can be the most affectionate and altruistic of creatures, yet he's potentially more vicious than any other. He is the only one who can be persuaded to hate millions of his own kind whom he has never seen and to kill as many as he can lay his hands on in the name of his tribe or his God.
A Rattlesnake, if cornered will become so angry it will bite itself. That is exactly what the harboring of hate and resentment against others is — a biting of oneself. We think we are harming others in holding these spites and hates, but the deeper harm is to ourselves.
We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front. We humans have out-sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line. Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that’s what it’s become, of being different.
The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists, who are dedicated to justice, peace, and brotherhood. The trailblazers in human, academic, scientific, and religious freedom have always been nonconformists. In any cause that concerns the progress of mankind, put your faith in the nonconformist!
When all obsessive group-consciousness on Earth is finished, exhausted, when it admits defeat, then a different era will emerge. But for now, we are in the middle of the collective experiment. High-flying cloying sentiment, profound dependence on others, covert repression—these are the order of the day.
How long until the collective age is over? A hundred years? A thousand years? The answer is, as long as it takes for every human to realize that the experiment has failed, and why. The why is clear—the individual has been overlooked. He has been demeaned. He has been grabbed up and drafted into groups. His creative power has been compromised in order to fit in.
The majority of the world still believes in this approach, as if from good groups will flow the ultimate and final solutions we have all been seeking. This is sheer mind control, because good groups morph into evil, and vice versa, in the ongoing stage play called reality.
Ideals are twisted, infiltrators subvert plans, lessons are ignored, and the whole sorry mess repeats itself again. What constituted a triumph of good over evil at one moment is guided into yet another collective, whose aims are “a better kind of control.“
The most deluded among us believe we are always on the cusp of a final breakthrough. But there is no “we“ to make the breakthrough. It comes to every person on his own. And it does not arrive as the thrust of an external force, but from one’s own struggle, accompanied by insights for which there is no outside agency to lend confirmation.
But this is something, in all honesty, that really does puzzle us. Because you see, in all of the civilizations we have encountered, of course all civilizations are unique, but your civilization is one of the most highly focused in certain ways that we have ever encountered. And one of the most highly focused ideas we have seen in your civilization is the idea, the insistence, of giving away your power. The idea that you are very willing, over and over again to believe what someone else tells you other than what you know is true for yourself. That is why we always—always—in all of these interactions outline from the beginning: You are never expected to believe anything we say, just because we said it.
