Transition from Fourth To Fifth World: The "Thunder Beings" Return
By Richard Boylan, Ph.D.
At the Native American Star Knowledge Conference held in South Dakota in
June, 1996, senior Oglala Sioux spiritual elder Looks-For-Buffalo (Floyd
Hand) revealed that ancient prophecies are now coming true. These
prophecies, heralding immense changes for humankind, point to the
imminent return of the Star Nations, what the white man would call
The Hopi, Sioux and other tribal traditions hold that at this point in
history, we are about to transition from the current pattern of
civilization to a radically-different way of living. This change is so
profound that it is called the passage from the Fourth (current) World
to the Fifth World! By "world", the native traditions refer to a slow
gradual rise of the human population to a period of widely-shared
cultural and technological high civilization. The implications of these
indigenous teachings are staggering. For this means that we humans have
gone through three previous Worlds, in which our ancestors rose to a
peak of civilized living, only to crash back to a primitive level.
From halfway around the Earth comes additional corroborative
information. Mac Ruka, a Maori spiritual teacher, has toured America at
the behest of his Maori people to share their ancient history. Ruka
tells of a civilization, Mu, from which the Maori came. This
civilization once reached ascendancy in the Melanesian Pacific, before
it destroyed itself and its island empire sank beneath the ocean.
Fragmentary memory of this empire still resides in the mythic history of
the West as a place called Lemuria. And what of that other high
civilization, Atlantis, which the Greek philosopher Plato stated he
learned about from Egyptian historians? Were Atlantis and Lemuria the
Second and Third Worlds which the Native American oral histories refer
If our present "Fourth-World" high civilization is about to fall and be
swept away, we would do well to learn from the history held by these
native teachers. For, as philosopher George Santayana has said, "Those
who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Let us examine
in more detail what those master keepers of oral tradition, the Hopi,
reveal about our previous Worlds. 
The First World was called Tokpela ("Endless Space"). The First People
understood that although they had human parents, their real parents were
the universal entities which had created them through their parents:
Father Sun and Mother Earth. Each learned that they had two aspects: as
a member of an earthly family and clan, and as a citizen of the great
universe. Gradually the First People forgot to respect their creator.
They began to use the vibratory centers of their body [chakras] only for
earthly purposes. They began to perceive differences and separation
between people and animals, and between different ethnic, linguistic and
religious groups. The animals began to draw away from people. The First
People began to divide up and draw away from each other. They became
warlike and fought. The First World's fatal flaw, then, was forgetting
the unifying Oneness of all creation.
But there were a few in every group who held to the original spiritual
enlightened path. These were directed by Spirit to migrate to a special
underground location. Then, the First World was destroyed by fire:
volcanoes erupting and fire raining down from the sky, until there was
nothing left but the few faithful people inside the Earth.
After a long time the world cooled off, and a Second World emerged.
There was land where water had been, and water where land had been. When
the faithful remnant emerged from underground, there was nothing to
remind them of the previous wicked world.
They emerged into the Second World, Tokpa ("Dark Midnight"), a big land.
The people spread across the land. They communicated telepathically. But
this time, the animals stayed apart from them. As the Second World
people developed material goods to barter, they became greedy, and
traded for things they didn't need and became avaricious. They began to
quarrel and fight, and wars broke out. The Second World's fatal flaw,
then, was absorption in greed and materialism.
But again, there were a few people who kept faithful to the path of
spiritual awareness. And, again, Spirit directed these people to go to a
safe underground place. Then Spirit commanded the twin entities who
safeguard the Earth's North and South Poles to leave their posts and
stop keeping the Earth properly rotating. The Earth teetered off
balance, spun around crazily, and rolled over twice. Mountains plunged
into seas with a great splash; seas and lakes sloshed over the land.
Then the world became cold and lifeless, and froze into solid ice.
Eventually, Spirit ordered the polar entities back to the ends of the
Earth's axis. With a great splintering of ice and a shudder, the Earth
began rotating again. The ice melted, and the world warmed to life.
Spirit created the Third World, Kuskurza [meaning lost over time][Mu?],
arranging land and seas, mountains and plains, and all forms of life.
Then Spirit sent a message to the few faithful people underground that
it was time to emerge. These survivors multiplied and created great
cities, eventually countries, and a whole civilization. But then they
became completely occupied with their own earthly plans. They created
craft shaped like a shield that could fly, and used them to fly to big
cities and attack them. Soon many peoples and countries were engaged in
aerial warfare. These Third People also engaged in degraded sexual
practices. The Third World's fatal flaw, then, was misusing flight for
aerial warfare and misusing sex for promiscuity.
So Spirit directed the few people who lived according to wisdom that
they should build vessels and store food in them. Then rainwater was
loosed all over the Earth. Waves higher than mountains rolled in upon
the land. Continents broke asunder and sank beneath the seas.
Meanwhile, Spirit directed the faithful survivors to travel first to
one, then to another island, until finally they reached the Fourth
World, Tuwaqachi ("Complete World"). After they had hop scotched across
the islands to arrive in the Fourth World, those islands sank into the
That Fourth World is this present world we live in. The survivors spread
across the broad lands, and gradually began building up the high
civilizations which surround us today. Since this Fourth World is the
one we have grown up in, we are aware of the behaviors of those in it.
It can accurately be said that, after an initial time of fidelity to the
path of wise consciousness, many have fallen into a low level of
consciousness. In fact, it can honestly be stated that many people of
this Fourth World have fallen into the fatal flaws of the three previous
Worlds: forgetting the Oneness of all creation, sinking into greed and
materialism, and engaging in promiscuity and aerial mass warfare. But we
have added an additional serious element: mass destruction of Earth and
its ecological systems. Thus, the Fourth World's fatal flaws are: all of
the previous Worlds' ones, plus ecocide, the killing of one's own
And now this Fourth World is coming to an end. Some of the signs
indicating this are: extinctions of plant and animal species; poisoning
of lands by toxic materials; pollution of the seas; and thinning of the
upper atmosphere, "ozone holes", letting in excessive ultraviolet
energy, which in turn is killing plant life, causing cancer in humans,
and die-offs of phytoplankton, the source of 90%of the oxygen necessary
for life. Global warming is destabilizing climates, and upsetting the
ecosystems that plants, animals and humans live in.
As the Fourth World careens towards its end, a major new factor is
entering the equation: a widespread series of contacts by various
extraterrestrial cultures with human individuals. What are these
extraterrestrials communicating when they make contact? They express
grave concern for how we are killing our planet and therefore ourselves.
Their concern extends to the warfare we are almost continually engaged
in, and the other forms of violence going on: including people allowing
whole populations to die of starvation or disease, while affluent
countries stand by. The ETs want us to take responsibility and turn
these situations around, before it is too late.
But the extraterrestrials also have come to make us aware that we are
not alone; and that our rightful place is to be participants in the
larger, cosmic family of intelligent peoples spread across the universe.
But first we must eliminate our fatal flaws and reorder our lifestyle.
We must live with consciousness of our oneness with all creatures, and
with the Creative Source. We must lay aside our greed and materialism,
and learn to live more simply and without undue attachments. We must
reject promiscuity, and exercise love with consciousness of the
sacredness of sexuality. We must set aside aerial mass warfare, and
begin to settle differences by diplomacy, by setting good example, by
positive peer pressure, and by empowering all peoples. We need to start
treating Earth and its ecosystems like our Mother, with respect and
As at the end of the previous Worlds, there will be a faithful remnant
of this Fourth World who will survive, while the others perish. The Hopi
Prophecies say what will happen soon. World War III will be started in
the East. Much of the United States will be destroyed, land and people,
by nuclear weapon radioactivity. The Four corners area around the Hopi
will be preserved as an oasis, to which refugees will flee. But what
about those elaborate underground shelters which FEMA  has been
secretly constructing for the elite to survive in during the coming
Earth Changes? The Hopi Prophecy says that underground shelters are a
fallacy this time. "It is only materialistic people who seek to make
shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the
great shelter of life."
What will the Fifth World to which we are headed be like? The Prophecy
gives a brief glimpse of what is in store. "Those who take no part in
the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in
another World, be they of the Black, White, Red or Yellow race. They are
all one, brothers [and sisters]." As for this Fourth World, "Material
matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings, who shall remain to
create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator."
The Prophecy goes on to declare the stage we are in now. "The emergence
to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made of the humble
people of little nations, tribes and racial minorities. You can read
this in the Earth itself. Plant forms from previous Worlds are beginning
to spring up as seeds. The same kind of seeds are being planted in the
sky as stars. The same kind of seeds are being planted in our hearts.
All these are the same." 
We are entering the time of Great Purification, as Earth prepares to
transition to the Fifth World. This is a period of Earth Changes: major
earthquakes, tidal waves, many volcanoes erupting, land subsidence,
emergence of new land, climatic changes, disease pandemics, and
widespread starvation. Catastrophes of human origin are also in the
offing, including: warfare involving weapons of mass destruction,
including nuclear, rioting and looting, collapse of monetary systems,
and forced migrations. As with the previous Worlds, there will be those
who want to cling to the old ways of the Fourth World and resist the
need to change. We see them all around us now. And just as surely there
will be those who seek to live in harmony with the rest of creation.
Sensitive co-existence with other life is not ecological romanticism or
fuzzy metaphysics. It is recognition of the true extent of family.
During this transition more than ever before, each of us is being called
to serve the Great Spirit, that Center of Consciousness from which
everything derives its being. Each of us has an important role during
this Great Purification. We need to help find ways for nations, races
and tribes to put aside differences, and join together for the good of
everyone. We need to help plant and animal species survive. We have to
bring to an end the pollution of Earth, and return to our proper role as
caretakers of Earth's ecosystems. We need to lay aside the "success"
lifestyle of greed and materialism, and learn to adopt a lifestyle of
"just enough" and "good enough". We need to move away from the twin
follies of promiscuity and Puritanism, and learn to reverence sex as the
delightful yet sacred activity of appropriately joining opposites to
create a higher truth. And we need to lay aside the weapons of war, and
operate with that compassion, understanding and
economic justice which make for peace.
Where ultimately is this human voyage through a succession of Worlds
headed? The Prophecy says that at the center of the universe, there is a
place where all the nations originated. It is in the Star Nations
galaxy. Before we arrive there, we will transit through nine Worlds.
Native American tradition honors the existence of Thunder Beings. These
Thunder Beings are understood by Native Americans to be messengers from
the powers on high, the Star People (extraterrestrial visitors). The
Thunder Beings are a force for both dissolution and re-creation. In the
Plains Indian tradition, a person who has a visit by a Thunder Being, in
person, in vision or in dream, becomes a heyoka, a "contrary".  This
heyoka then customarily soon starts behaving in a way opposite to the
conventions of the dominant culture. The heyoka does so, precisely in
order to wake up society to see that there are other and fresher ways of
doing things. Thus, the heyoka is the human counterpart of the Thunder
Beings, who repeatedly dissolve the existing order and fashion a new
arrangement from the pieces.
As we transition from the Fourth into the Fifth World, it occurs to me
that not all heyokas are Plains Indians. Some have yellow skin, others
black, others white. These heyokas of every color are experiencers, and
have been changed by their experience of extraterrestrial contact by
messengers from the sky (Thunder Beings). As modern-day heyokas,
experiencers are charged to live as active witnesses against the
ignorance and corruption of the Fourth World, and to live as witnesses
of the Fifth World which is emerging. In doing so, modern heyokas honor
the Thunder Beings, the extraterrestrials, who have come as cosmic
midwives to help us birth the Fifth World.
And there are others, too, who have not had a personal extraterrestrial
encounter, but who are actively helping humanity move towards cosmic
citizenship, and helping usher in the Fifth World society. These are
heyokas as well.
In Winter, 1996, high in the Rockies west of Fort Collins, Colorado, a
Star Visions Conference was convened by Lakota-Dakota spiritual advisor
Standing Elk. There numerous speakers talked about our imminent
transition from the current Fourth World to a new Fifth World. On the
evening of November 9th, Conference ceremonial leadership switched from
Native American males to the women. A Cherokee grandmother recited Crazy
Horse's prophecy about these very times, as the Old Age (Fourth World)
closes. Then, after a series of moving prayers and ritual declarations,
the grandmother elders made a startling official ceremonial declaration:
the old era (Fourth World) was ended, and the new age (Fifth World) was
being born! A joyous explosion of tumultuous celebration broke out all
over the conference auditorium. After a half-hour, the grandmother
elders were finally able to call the conference back to order. The
elders then declared that this new Fifth World would
have as its hallmark the attributes of positive feminine energy. They
explained that the Fourth World, which had been hallmarked by male
energy dominance, had had its time, and made its contributions. Now that
World is passing away. The grandmothers pointed out that the Fifth World
being born must not be one of separatist female dominance, but rather
one of forming a renewed society of women and men as equals. Fifth World
society is shaped by the feminine paths of cooperation, non-aggression,
inclusiveness, non-competitiveness , service rather than dominance, use
of psychic and spiritual gifts as well as technology, and living in
conscious harmony with nature's ways. 
The next morning, a major Colorado newspaper, the Rocky Mountain News,
carried the story that "a bold group at Estes Park Center [Star Vision
Conference] had declared an end to the current era and the beginning of
a Fifth Dimension [World] reality." Word of formal declaration of the
birth of the Fifth World was beginning to spread out to the wider
society. This process will take time. But it is important to realize
that the Fifth World has already begun. Just as the Period of
Purification which will end the Fourth World has already begun. During
this painful but exciting period of transition, each of us must stand up
and choose: status quo, or helping usher in the Fifth World.
Finally, permit me to share with you a personal Thunder Being
experience, and then my understanding of the role of heyokas in the
Some years ago I did a hanblechia (vision quest) in the desert near
Death Valley. During my isolation, I was presented with a image of a
Thunderbird formed by the shadow of a cloud on a snowfield atop a nearby
mountain. The image remained a long time, then finally dissipated. The
skeptical part of my mind at first tried to minimize this event.
However, an hour later another identical Thunderbird image appeared on
the same snowfield, and persisted a while. I could not escape the
implication for my vision quest: a calling to the path of the heyoka.
Later my encounter with Star People confirmed this heyoka journey.
Any and all of you who choose to work to bring in the Fifth World are in
my opinion heyokas. Recognize your calling in your behaviors. And then
let's get down to work in fashioning this Fifth World. The negative
power of the Fourth World cannot be annihilated. It can only be
transmuted, by being confronted by the simplicity and cosmic
consciousness of the Fifth World's midwives, the heyokas, you (if you
wish). We are not alone in this task. The Thunder Beings (ETs) have come
to awaken us, test us, and help us transmute. As heyokas, our role is to
confront the Fourth World's negative energies, channel and transmute
them into cooperative, spiritual, non aggressive, inclusive,
noncompetitive, service-oriented, dominance-rejecting , psychic,
highly-conscious, natural and harmonious energies.
As we do so, and thereby evolve forward, the vibratory rate of the
biological and consciousness energy fields within us increases. I have
noticed that people of like vibratory rate can "hear" and feel each
other's inner consciousness level. And here is a miracle. A
higher-vibrating person (or heyoka, if you will) is like a tuning fork,
tending to create a higher matching (sympathetic) vibration rate in
others around who are functioning at a lower (Fourth World)
vibratory/conscious ness level. Just like a soprano's high note can cause
a crystal glass to vibrate, heyokas can cause Fourth Worlders around
them to tend to increase their vibratory rate. But Fourth Worlders have
choices. They can go along with the higher vibratory/conscious ness rate,
and transition into the Fifth World. Or they can resist and, like the
glass, "shatter", as their outlook is increasingly dissonant with the
emerging Fifth World. If they remove themselves from all contact with
World people, they may buy some little time, but in the end they will
still have to choose.
As for the heyoka midwives of the Fifth World, recognize that your role
is in harmony with your fundamental way of being, and is therefore
unavoidable. Therefore, I encourage you to operate at your highest
vibration, and help usher in the Fifth World.

&&&&&&&&&&&& &&&&&&& I have been called to create a small
sanctuary in the Catskill Mountains of New York for mature lightworkers
To this end, I have purchased a wonderful 15 acre mountain top.
Beginning in May of 2009, I will be creating a sustainable off-grid
oasis for abou 5 or 6 lightworkers. This invitation is for those who
have completed much of their clearing work, are healthy, and can
contribute physially to the creating and maintaining of organic gardens,
wind-power, and wood heat systems. It is for independent lightworkers
who would like to have some other like-minded people close by, while
having plenty of time of their own lightworker projects. The land has
very excellent energy. There is also a new cabin for sale down the
road from this property... on about 4 acres with an incredible view.
