"We are only here in order to fulfil our mission and the prevention of the catastrophe and to prepare you for your difficult assignment as prophet. For further things, like help with evolution and so forth, other forms of life from your own universe are responsible, who will initially called themselves Pleiadians. Already for millennia, they supervise the Earth and keep those space-faring races in check who wish evil for you Earth humans and want to gain control over Earth humanity with the employment of religion and all the related deceptions, hallucinations, and trickery with which they buoy up the Earth humans with false promises."
Asket, February 1953
Eduard since 1975 to the 3rd of February 2017, then had 1704 personal and 1294 telepathic contacts [continue reading]
How It All Began
How It All Began: Explains how Eduard Meier's regular communications with extraterrestrials began in the very beginning.
Who is Billy Meier: Introduces Billy himself.
Why Billy Meier: Introduces a few of the reasons.
When do you live: Deals with those necessary preceding narratives.
The Pleiadians / Plejaren and their Federation members are folks with physical bodies that for the most part look very similar to the Earth folks. There are some anatomical differences, but such differences usually belong to the Federation members. [continue reading]
Their average life expectancy is about 1000 years. Their home planet is typically Erra, which is a planet a little smaller than Earth and has a population of around 500 million. The population of the entire federation is around a hundred and twenty thousand million (120 billion short count).
The Pleiades / Plejares stars aren't identical to the Pleiades known to us. They're 80 light years further away than the seven sisters star cluster that is visible from the Earth at night. What's more it's a system in a different space-time-structure i.e. another dimension altogether.
They're consciously i.e. mentally, and technically i.e. engineering and technologically; far ahead of the Earth humans.
We Earthlings and the Pleiadians / Plejaren do share a common ancestry, but we are on entirely separate paths of development and Consciousness Evolution.
The situation naturally raises all kinds of questions, the vast majority of which have been answered one way or another.
By August 2018 there were 15 Plejadisch-plejarische Kontaktberichte, see Book Statistics (A4-sized thread-bound books with approx. 500 pages each).
Creation (supernatural) and its Creations (life), Universe Origin (big bang), Earth History (archaeology), Science (physics, mathematics, biology), Astronomy, Spirituality (philosophy), Reincarnation (consciousness evolution, human beings, life and death), Genetic Manipulation (including ancient), Earth Religions, Human Evolution (history and consciousness), Spiritual Science, Interplanetary Spaceflight (UFOs), Galactic Federation, Extraterrestrial Origins and Their Visits on Earth (throughout all history), Telepathy (and many other related capabilities which can be developed), Overpopulation on Earth, Environmental degradation, male-female relationships, cover-ups by governments, government agencies and the military, along with many other issues and trivia. All of which and many others have subject accumulation pages on this website if you use the search box in the top right or the Meier Encyclopedia.

Translation FAQ [Show/Hide]
Q: What language is the website in?
A: It's an English language website which hosts English content with a German language copy placed on the right hand side, where an original source for the translation is available for the presentation. The original Billy Meier documents are in German which technically means it's an English and German website. The website links to other languages and where contextually appropriate. The Downloads, Rare Archives sections and a few individual pages, may be or include items presented in other languages, of varying consistencies.
Q: Why have the new translations not been added and updated yet?
A: See Contributing content and read the section below, appeal to all responsible, about the voluntary nature of translating and updating the wiki’s content.
Q: You change the translations?
A: The base story in German and in English has never changed. Faultfinding is different, we're correcting errors, improving the translations and using http://dict.figu.org as well as regular over the counter dictionaries.
Q: Can you install a better search extension?
A: It is too server CPU resource intensive. The conversations have an Index and been indexed by Google which can be used to search the archive using special search terms called 'operators'.
Copy and paste one of these lines into Google and see what is sent back to you.

www.futureofmankind.info is a mirror of the website on a faster server, great for searching. It's overwritten every night so editors sign in to the .co.uk
Q: Why does FutureofMankind place the original German text on the right and English on the left, when some of the other websites do it the other way?
A: FutureofMankind is an English language website, in English we read from left to right. It's promotional of the original German text when each English sentence is followed by the German and not the edge of the screen. It's not ignored as readily, especially where we've been able to align sentences. It may also maintain the standard of established literary wiki agreements. However the arrangement may be associated with driving on the left where the shaking of hands using the right hand is generally considered proper etiquette. It’s unclear exactly why placing the original German on the right feels correct, but it feels right to read it that way to us.
Q: Can I have more information about this, where can I find more information about that?
A: The main thing it has taught us is that there is allot we don't know. Use the search, have a look at the External Links. There may be times when you'll want to think about it and times when you want community and to talk about it, have a look at the External Links and the facebook groups. There are plenty of resources available but you're on your own.
Q: Why has all this information about Billy Meier spanning decades been unloaded here on the FutureofMankind wiki, often without explanations about where it originated from, who translated it, when and why and a guide on how to do everything?
A: At first its recommended that you not concern much about your unknowing and to approach it vicariously for a while. It’s a community of independent individuals and you will have to make your own mind up and form your own opinions about everything eventually. Its international so all the different standards and methodologies of presentation and how they've been combined and formed over the time may gradually emerge. It may require searching for sources and references on your own if you want more information about a specific subject that interests you, just as all those that came before you had to do to develop an understanding of all the whys and wherefores of everything. In the process you may slowly learn how to use the site. There are plenty of resources available but you're on your own.
Q: Regarding the creation–evolution controversy also termed the creation vs. evolution debate or the origins debate. What does Billy Meier say?
A: Billy has written lots about it in various documents, apparently the way it is: it's evolution, creation and creation-evolution and reincarnation and its religion and its relegeon too. He's confused many of us to the point of silence, some cannot tolerate using the word creation and some incapable of using the word evolution, some come from a religious background, others from no affiliation groups such as scientists and free-thinkers. Billy has given the various methods of delivery for each audience, otherwise keeping quiet to allow us to check and work it out for ourselves. Talking and writing plentifully about nature and the most simplistic observations of the natural way. Creation and evolution may mean something different things to a reader, see FIGU - related_terms. The bible and many religions has had it's distortions extensively reviewed by the Plejaren. The atheist has been described as "going a different way", though FIGU say there is no God. There has been extensive explanations about spirit, supernatural and various unseen, undiscovered forces. Both the evolutionist and creationist are right in many ways, but wrong in others, however both have such an ephemeral, shallow understanding of it all that neither affiliated person tends to go far enough to make sense. Leaving the very best religious scholars and very best scientists around the world, who have really studied these matters, with a special marriage of knowledge at that refined end of explanation. As the consciousness development and consciousness-evolution progresses, information is released from the variably named Storage Banks, which is a fine-material repository of accumulated cognitions from previous lives. This is why civilization carries on and progresses, it doesn't restart every generation, it's a flow of progression. Creativity and invention falls upon certain individuals which we call talent but which in truth have dealt with the specialism at length before in their individual cases. Albert Einstein might very well have been a notable scientist in a previous civilization, however that does not mean he has not been a farmer, cleaner and other professions in between it just means that given the right educational triggers he exceptionally excelled in the subject. This is why a great quantity of education for every citizen is important for society, as well as many good and open opportunities to do things. Hidden inside the explanation is that Earth has a minority of previously, former extraterrestrials in spirit, see Reincarnation, who given the educational triggering circumstances could progress humanity much further and rapidly, because a creative-natural law according to the Plejaren is that spirit-forms have to incarnate on the planet in which they died, leaving Earth with around 5 million from previous civilizations. However given the wrong educational triggers and an otherwise genius such as Adolf Hitler, who was very intelligent up to university, and then profound individuals can also do profoundly negative degenerative things too of global importance as well as in addition to those generative things, the binary opposition science applies to human beings too. This is why civilization must be managed well with plenty of factual education and economic stability in society is very important etc. This incidentally is how we know Malona wasn't managed well.[citations needed]
Q: I just want to know if Billy Meier is professing to be offering devine revelation?
A: The Plejaren are using a sizeable quantity of technologies, most of them we have only theories about, some we have not even imagined yet, even in all the science fiction narratives we’ve created, and do remember that our history is very rapidly accelerated. They have proven this, that they have these by a variety of methods, most of the proofs have never been explored by investigators because they argue why bother investigating it any further if there are false images. Some of the proofs have been given great thought, but rarely if ever advertised at the front of the Billy Meier case in the presentations, radio interviews, about it etc. These technologies can for example retrieve information, lots of it, which many with no scientific education would see as strange, even scientists themselves would find it strange and have done, because these are sciences which as said we have only theories about etc. but over and over again they talk about natural laws and creative-natural laws, these technologies can only do what is possible within the universes natural laws i.e. science, and while sometimes appearing illogical are entirely logical its just that we have not got around to discovering these areas of science as repeated. In 2017 for example a few events were published in the Zeitzeichen publication detailing events which were to occur just a few days later, and did, but only the interested readers would have caught that at the time. There is plenty of documented not yet happened predictions too, but they dont want this to be accessible to everyone, they want FIGU audience to remain a reasonable size and not grow too large.[citations needed]
Q: How can I get a job in politics with my values without lying my way in?
A: That isn’t necessarily what is meant by the show will go on if it continues that no one in politics takes responsibility. In another area of the information we’re told how we’ll have to work up a tremendously powerful non-aggressive mightful force and then ram the worlds governments like they’ve never been rammed before if we want anything generative and progressive in the future, probably because they’re all strongly religious. There are no firm answers that are given to this question actually, you’re on your own (is what the Plejaren are saying).
Q: You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age??
A: It is not necessary to do everything in a courtroom, you can use nicknames, abbreviation names etc., Billy’s name is actually Eduard. It is not possible to technically change gender in entirety yet, the outward appearance, reputation and legal status etc. can be changed. Regarding your age, you can make up any number you want, but similarly its a deception, your age group of people are your people, you’ve grown old together. If you want to do some adventure sports and social media with the younger people at age 70 etc., then if you feel young inside and your accepted by them for what you are then why bother to lie about yourself, but if you lie about your age what may happen is that you may be more likely to find someone who lies about theirs disingenuously. Genetically engineered technologies are not available yet. As a brain develops with an identity, if that identity changes, the brain may not necessarily change with it.
Q: Why is the abbreviation “resp.” used in translations, when it has no meaning to native speakers and doesn't derive from English. And what does it mean?
A: It throws new readers off, but after a dozen encounters the probable meaning becomes reasonably clear. It does tend to furrow a few brows though. The writer is explaining something and reinforcing that explanation. It could mean; that is; i.e.; or; rather; also; and; also known as; more precisely; more precisely known as; with respect to; in respect of, etc. It may also mean; regarding; with regards to, and see also.
The term “resp.” is an "English" abbreviation which is not English, so does not appear in dictionaries. It seems to be quite often used by native German speakers when writing in English, when they want to use respectively as a conjunction and not as an adverb. In German, instead of bzw., a writer can also use respektive as a conjunction; this explains the mistake. It’s not serendipitous because “resp.” is used in Billy Meier’s original German source text. It may possibly be to make translating easier. Translators have probably been muddled / confused as to how to present it, and therefore sometimes opt to retain it and incorporate it into the English translation. Sometimes translators have used i.e. and e.g. instead where it’s been deemed contextually appropriate. Translators have also occasionally been known to end a sentence with respectively when there has been an ordered list.
i.e. isn't English either it came from Latin but isn't Latin.
resp. isn’t German either it came from English but isn’t English.
Q: Why is the dash character '-' used between two words often and what does it mean?
A: It’s a way of joining the two words to create a new meaning. Specifically targeting a defined meaning, e.g. decaffeinated-coffee, clear-dream and Ur-flame, it's now a variation of word which is it's own thing. In English this may not even be technically possible to do, perhaps a language person could weigh in and give a better answer. In German it is possible to add words together to create new words, even without a space or dash. It means we can present the very long complicated new German words from the original book in English without breaking up what is written. The German portion (where included) reveals what was written before being translated.
Q: Why is Völkerflucht and Volk being translated to folk and folks instead of people and peoples?
A: Verification required but because when the ladies and gentlemen in the original Norfolk and Suffolk, East Anglia England began the Anglosphere words they either evolved the German language words or retained the Danish, Dutch and Swedish words which they already knew because many were from Germany and those other nations, from volk to folk, it was only later when for whatever reason people came in during the various invasions and colonisations then the standardisation of English occured because English is a mix of several languages. We're translating from German into English so it makes sense to use the words that pair better. The etymology of people is latin anglo norman french, and folk is old english dutch german. Besides that the Plejaren have described the word 'people' as meaning something less generative than 'folk'. If your next question is why we use the latin etymology spiritus to spirit instead of the german etymology geist to ghost, that is apparently a different and special circumstance because we've regrettably loaded the word ghost with all sorts of angst and fear, but not the word spirit, so the german route is not recommended on that occasion. Lowestoft in England e.g. comes from the old name Lois (like Lois Lane superman) or lewis with the old norse word toft meaning town, meaning the closest name were it translated into the modern world would be Louisville in Kentucky. Kent Clark? Supermenschen. Theres a place in Kent, England, called Folkestone, possibly as Volkstein. Overbevolking and Überbevölkerung doesn't work with folks, uses Latin instead as overpopulation. Volkswagen under the regime would be Folkwagon, possibly a Folksaloon. People, folk, mankind, humans etc.
Q: Why are selected words capitalised?
A: It's a similar answer as the above. It's a translation from another language, from German. In German there may be differences in the language rules compared to English. The translator may have been attempting to match the source as close as possible, and may not have known themselves how to deal with an uppercase word so retained it in the English translation. It may occasionally indicate an unrealised meaning that differs from the several existing meanings, and deserves a new word e.g. CREATION when it means the Universal-consciousness or RATIO when it refers to a special mechanism (founded on a creative-natural-law) in the human beings consciousness. But not an art paint project creation or a measurement ratio, for example. BEING is another example and LIFE'S NAVEL or the NAVEL OF LIFE another example of capitalisation somewhere. The uppercase words may represent an importance for understanding the texts meaning. UFO and FIGU are acronym abbreviations.
Q: What do you mean you have made your own dictionary?
A: If you mean http://dict.figu.org then this is not technically a dictionary at all, it is a website that recommends to the translators which words to use in English for a German word being translated. If you mean we have been very careful and meticulous about the language we are using, for clarity and being factual, accurate and in the claims and statements we are making and opinions we offer, then yes, that is true, we are aware that the vast majority of humankind on Earth if we’re being perfectly honest is modestly basic, we're keeping the explanations accessible to everyone. We are interested in attracting the particularly well educated individuals by making it accessible to them too.
Q: What can I write in my book?
A: It's ok to summarise in your own words. It's illogical not to put Billy Meier in your compilation UFO book, but illogical to get the information wrong too, because it's presented beautifully. A misunderstanding can make the author appear the fantasist. For the reader, if the author is capable of such a misunderstanding then the rest of their book may be susceptible to such a misunderstanding. Don’t say anything about the Billy Meier case which is not true or makes you appear stupid.
Authors in the past for example, have claimed Billy used time-travel to go back in time to photograph the great California earthquake, when the photo was from the future, just a stupid mistake really. Or that he went back in time to meet Jesus, when there was no such person ever called Jesus; Billy went back (technically always forward) to meet Jmmanuel and not even at the time the purported Jesus lived, again another stupid thing to write in a book which references Billy Meier. Other times authors have claimed that his experiences have changed his life, inferring it didn't begin when he was 5 years old, but some mid-life time later. As you can see by the examples it is not difficult to get right, and easy to get entirely wrong. What happened is linear, real-time, the Contact reports are word for word conversations, it has not changed (except errors) since the day it was printed. Flatter your intellect when professing to have read and understood it; those authors clearly have not. Engage plenty of research for the writing of the segment for your book, it's nothing like the other UFO stories. It's incompatible with the majority of UFO stories, because UFO stories generally speaking are inherently fantasy. So if you're going to put Billy Meier in your book and decide to portray him fairly and accurately, then be aware, it may transpire it's the only segment in your book worth reading.
Billy has been very precise because it's controversial, it's presented beautifully because even a slight change in the arrangement makes it appear fictional, this is why so much care has been taken with the presentation. It may be defamatory to alter the composition. Most authors read the third-party testimony of other authors, aim to read the source of the information, check with the original German text.
Q: Can I list Billy Meiers UFOs or story in my youtube top ten video?
A: It’s the best collection of UFOs in the entire world, so it would make sense that you did. We’re not in a position to say yes because we don’t own the copyright. However Billy’s images have been used by television networks without them ever paying a royalty to him for decades, not that it makes it ok. Providing your portraying the information fairly i.e. honestly, being reasonable with the presentation, not distorting or defaming, there probably isn’t going to be an objection to it if it’s not objectionable. You could write FIGU copyright, FIGU.org or FutureofMankind.info somewhere such as in the corner or in the description, which is helpful to those wanting to find it and read more about it. It’s not a video we would recommend makers to make, but it’s the best UFO information available in the world, longest running and highest standards, so maybe you want to. We advise against a negative review of it because our historical research into poor reviews have shown they’ve attracted unnecessary unpleasantness for the makers, writers, authors, and it’s a waste of time and for what audience. A neutral presentation such as listing it and even a critical-analysis is acceptable. It’s not fake so take care to check before.
Q: Can I make a donation to the website?
A: You are most welcome to make a donation to the website. It continues to be hosted here because of these donations, see the Donate page if you would like to and thank you. The website has a fairly sizeable web hosting and domain, expenses fee as far as such fees go, annually, due to the shear size of the resource here. The donations are used to pay for it, and will be used to ensure the website continues to be available for as long as it possibly can be.
Appeal to all responsible
The UFO concerns of 'Billy' Eduard Albert Meier (BEAM) are but a small part of the tip of a vast iceberg hiding the doctrine of the truth of creation and its laws and commandments. BEAM's mission is to teach this doctrine of Earth humanity. All the knowledge and the whole truth are extremely extensive and of profound importance to every human being. Consequently everything has to be comprehensively recorded and made accessible to all people.
However, this requires a lot of work and also much needed capital investment, money, resource donation and voluntary labour. Therefore, the FIGU seeks those interested in the creative-natural truth, people who are willing to, free of charge, translate the writings and books of the 'Freie Interessengemeinschaft für Grenz- und Geisteswissenschaften and Ufologie-Studien' FIGU, into a variety of languages. To find a number of publishers which donors can purvey translated works, being printed and therefore distributed.
The efforts in this regard must however go out exclusively by the respective interested persons, as the FIGU labourers are not financially capable and able to place themselves in such a situation and besides that it is also not their job.
With regard to the production of fonts and books as well as their printing and distribution, SSSC is solely responsible for the German-speaking area, while for other languages and countries their own interests (language translation) must be found.
To translate the scriptures and books, it is necessary that both the German and the translation language are perfectly mastered and that the contents of the script and the book are thoroughly studied and understood, which requires a thorough study, at least in relation to the all-embracing doctrine of creative natural truth. [continue reading]
The textbooks may only be translated from the original German language into a foreign language, and when printing the works, the condition is stipulated that the German original text must be placed opposite the translation page. This is intended, on the one hand, to prevent distortions from appearing, and, on the other hand, to allow for constant monitoring on the basis of the original text. But this ensures a certainty that not distortions and new heresies arise, as unfortunately happened worldwide with various writings and their ideologies since time immemorial.
Translations from the original German text into other languages can only be made if the translation languages and the German language are perfectly mastered, as has already been explained, and if the material to be translated is understood in principle and can also be interpreted into the language to be translated. If all these requirements can be met, then please contact us if you are interested, either at the following address: FIGU, Semjase-Silver-Star-Center, CH-8495 Schmidrüti / Switzerland or via the Internet. After a detailed clarification of all necessary matters, the FIGU gladly provides a free copy of the typeface or book to which the translation interest applies. First and foremost, we aim for translations in the following languages: English, French, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, Dutch and Russian, but also in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Korean, Czech, Polish, Slovak and Chinese etc.
Help the FIGU through your valued collaboration - if you are able and capable of doing so - to promote the spread of the creative-natural truth with its laws and commandments and to support <Billy> Eduard Albert Meier's and the FIGU mission, the They are both important ministries for the evolution of terrestrial humanity, so that true love, freedom, wisdom and harmony, as well as knowledge and peace, can slowly and surely unfold among the people of the earth.
And here is more important information. Unfortunately, we repeatedly find Billy's books and pamphlets to be illegally translated and distributed - especially on the Internet - that are full of mistakes and falsifications. Just recently (October 2002) we became aware of an illegal translation of the Talmud Jmmanuel into Norwegian, which was posted anonymously on the internet. With such usually well meant, but in the end dangerous and illegal (copyright!) Activities you harm the FIGU mission, because truth is mixed with untruth. Once again, this will mislead earthlings, as was the case with the blatant falsification of the Talmud Jmmanuel some 2000 years ago.
It should be repeated again: All translations must be made from the original German text, by appropriate professionals and with the written permission of the author (Billy / FIGU)!
We ask our friends to inform us when they discover translations of our scriptures somewhere so that we can investigate. In addition, everyone is advised to refer to the information on the websites of FIGU Switzerland and its study groups regarding translated texts and to observe the official links to other websites.
Thank you very much
The translation effort tends to be voluntary (few exceptions), which unfortunately tends to often be forgotten, under-appreciated or is simply not known to new readers. It requires devotion and translation skill by individuals all over the world and developing the skills necessary to translate to a professional comprehensive standard takes time and dedication. Without this voluntary free of charge work effort, individuals in the English speaking world and Anglosphere, as it is for the other languages, would have only poorly translated texts; we wish therefore to express our gratitude and appreciation to them, we are all very thankful to those few individuals who have put in that effort, thank you for all the work, time and effort.
The translations may contain errors (as indicated at the top of contact report pages) even though meticulous efforts have been made to remove all of them; which is why the original German book source text tends to be included side by side with the English translation where possible and available. The layout on this website and others of having original text beside the translation additionally lends itself well to individuals independently fathoming a meaning which may not have been successfully passed across and transferred over the language barrier or been understood by the translator, without necessarily having to embroil others and the original translators to obtain those meanings. The meaning behind those complicated sentences and paragraphs can be garnered independently.
Extract from Contact Report 487, 3rd February, 2010.
According to all observations, examinations and analysis we (Plejaren) have come to the unanimous decision that henceforward you from the Mother Centre shall not make any further translations, also not into the English language.
Gemäss allen Betrachtungen, Abklärungen und Analysen sind wir zum einstimmigen Beschluss gelangt, dass ihr künftighin von eurer Seite des Mutter-Centers aus keinerlei Übersetzungen mehr durchführen sollt, auch nicht in die englische Sprache.
It (English) doesn't correspond to a true language, but only to a halfway acceptable auxiliary world-language that was disseminated world-wide through dishonest machinations from the USA with the aid of British English and other languages, whereby the deeper sense is to turn the terrestrial peoples into English-speaking ones, by using this meagre means of communication.
Diese entspricht keiner eigentlichen Sprache, sondern nur einer halbwegs annehmbaren Welthilfssprache, die durch unlautere Machenschaften von den USA aus mit Zuhilfenahme des britischen Englisch und anderer Sprachen weltweit verbreitet wurde, wobei der tiefere Sinn darin liegt, die irdischen Völker mit diesem ärmlichen Verständigungsmittel englischsprachig zu machen.
See main page of http://www.billymeiertranslations.com/ for an explanation about translations into other languages and the reason the German language is included with the English (or any language its translated into).
Nevertheless it's appreciated that it will continue to be read in English, the FIGU dictionary http://dict.figu.org/ has been established to help readers and translators choose the appropriate synonym and definition to use.

- Some of the books about Billy Meier written by some authors which have been sold and made a profit and have therefore contained translations which have been paid for, however the quality often of these translations have not been good because they have been translated by independents and have not utilised the resources of the FIGU dictionary and been printed before they have been checked by the community and perhaps rushed into print. So another way of saying that is that volunteers have then later had to rectify the mistakes in those translations regardless of how popular or profitable those books by those authors may have been.
