DR. JOSEPH BURKES
Dr. joseph Burkes, M.D. is a Board Certified Internist living in Southern California. He is a partner in a medical group serving a large Health Maintenance Organization and works in the emergency room. Burkes received his M.D. degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston Massachusetts. He was born in New York City in 1949.
Dr. Burkes has been a lifelong activist in peace and social justice movements. During the Vietnam War he organized students in antiwar protest activities and in 1979 he co-founded the Los Angeles Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, a coalition of medical and legal professionals assisting the labor movement to make the American work place safer.
During the 1980s, as the nuclear arms race intensified, he and thousands of other medical doctors joined Physicians for Social Responsibility(PSR), an organization established to educate the public and government leaders about the medical consequences of nuclear war. Serving in PSR’s Los Angeles chapter, he co-produced a weekly radio talk show titled, “Prescription for Survival” heard on listener-supported KPFK-FM.
As head of Los Angeles PSR’s speakers training, he assisted his colleagues in becoming effective public speakers in PSR’s campaign against the arms race. He was appointed the Pacific Regional Director for the organization and served on PSR’s National Board of Directors.
During his years in the physician’s peace movement he engaged in citizens’ diplomacy and traveled to the USSR four times. There he met with Soviet doctors who were engaged in a similar educational effort under the auspices of the organization International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, which was awarded the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize.
In May of 1992 he met Dr. Steven Greer, a fellow emergency room physician. Dr. Burkes was named the Los Angeles Working Group Coordinator for the CE-5 Initiative. He is of Russian-Jewish descent and speaks both Spanish and Russian. Dr. Burkes currently is no longer part of the CSETI leadership but he continues working for universal peace.
He is a board certified internist and has done Emergency Medicine from 1987 to 1998. Prior to that Dr. Burkes has had a group internal medicine practice for 8 years. Prior to that he was in training. Currently he is dividing his time between a Workers’ Compensation Practice, i.e. Occupational Medicine, and serving as a medical consultant for hospitalized patients in the San Fernando Valley. His special medical interests include mind-body medicine and industrial toxicology.
What is the CE-5 Initiative?
CE-5 is a term describing a fifth category of close encounters with Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI), characterized by mutual, bilateral communication rather than unilateral contact.
The CE-5 Initiative has as its central focus bilateral ETI-human communication based on mutual respect and universal principles of exchange and contact. CE types 1-4 are essentially passive, reactive and ETI initiated. A CE-5 is distinguished from these by conscious, voluntary and proactive human-initiated or cooperative contacts with ETI. Evidence exists indicating that CE-5s have successfully occurred in the past, and the inevitable maturing of the human/ETI relationship requires greater research and outreach efforts into this possibility. While ultimate control of such contact and exchange will (and probably should) remain with the technologically more advanced intelligent life forms (i.e., ETI), this does not lessen the importance of conscientious, voluntary human initiatives, contact and follow-up to conventional CE-s types 1-4.
CSETI is the only worldwide effort to concentrate on putting trained teams of investigators into the field where 1) active waves of UFO activity are occurring, or 2) in an attempt to vector UFOs into a specific area for the purposes of initiating communication. Contact protocols include the use of light, sound, and thought. Thought – specifically consciousness – is the primary mode of initiating contact.- http://www.siriusdisclosure.com
