That's where I am at with this group, they strike me as STS and I have not see any STO signs in their communication or their stated purpose.I am actually more skeptical now about this "Swaruu" than when I first started the thread and right now I think it is more likely that it is an STS disinformation source. For one thing, STO and STS do not appear as topics at all in their talks - only indirectly when they say that we need to see all as one, the necessity to not be attached to anything physical and what a society like that looks like.
Then there are what appear to be possible smear attempts regarding the Federation, such as the claim that they are responsible for the destruction of the planet in our solar system (they call it Tiamat) or the claim that they ultimately have full control over Earth and even guide the cabal in certain directions. Which this starship crew claims to have "only just found out" last year.
So overall, several things point towards this being disinformation - but there is also the possibility that all of these claims may be true.
I apologize if it feels as though my reaction is a knee jerk, by default, skeptical. It's not, it's what I honestly think about their material and what I can gleam based on what I have seen.
As far as the truth in their claims, there might be some truth in there, that's the best way to disinform, wrap your lie in several layers of truth. And the reason I do not wish to entertain them is because even if some of these claims happen to be true, their orientation of self serving, can ultimately lead to manipulation from higher densities.
So, even if there's some entertaining details about the structure of a galactic federation that stimulate the imagination, that is all that they offer, and if that's the case, I'd rather read fiction, personally.
