The philosophy believes that aliens have always been visiting humans, and that, as Rolling Stone puts it, “the only way for us to have a prosperous future on the planet is if we take that into account, and soon.”
DeLonge is readying a movie called Strange Times about skateboarding paranormal investigators. The Angels & Airwaves frontman is also writing a historical-fiction trilogy with novelist A.J. Hartley.
He's also working on Sekret Machines: Gods, the first of three non-fiction books co-written with Peter Levenda—known for chronicling occult, or paranormal, history. Next will be Sekret Machines: Man and Sekret Machines: War.
The book is based on interviews with scientists, engineers, intelligence officers and military officials, which the synopsis explains are called “the Advisors,” and the story will “confront a solid—if often unsettling—reality” in an attempt to challenge the way people think about UFO sightings and other related occurrences.
“The more I got into it, the more I realized it was all real,” DeLonge says about he developed the philosophy to Rolling Stone. “Then I was like, 'OK, what am I going to do about it?'”
He continues: “This project is aimed at creating a beacon and a vehicle to be able to interact directly with millennials across the world.
“Some of this stuff is empowering, and some of this stuff is frankly kind of scary. But you need to understand it, and you're going to need to deal with it when we're gone.”
Back in 2016, WikiLeaks revealed that DeLonge was contacting the Clinton administration about his philosophy. While he didn't comment much on it, DeLonge did say to Rolling Stone: “When the Wikileaks came out, at least people found out I wasn't lying.”
