The Estate Of LG Williams on Thursday said the artist LG Williams is signaling for "intergalactic help to fight the insanity of the modern human condition on planet Earth," Honolulu Weekly reports.
The insanity, which has "spread all over planet earth," has only increased exponentially "the problems faced by humans since eternity," according to LG Williams. "The artist was flying to the most remote location on the planet, Waimanalo, Hawaii, 'in the next day or so' to begin signaling aliens in outer space for help with a hand held mirror," the Estate reported.
To prevent the insanity from spreading further, Williams’ goal is to signal 1.3 million planets from all across and beyond the Milky Way, the Honolulu Weekly writes. “The modern form of insanity is a pandemic. It is spreading rapidly by unchecked aggression, greed, technology, and scientism. Its mantra is “progress”. This plague cannot be stopped by humans. So we need help from our neighbor aliens from outer space.We need HELP!Somebody please HELP! I know you can’t hear me, but maybe an alien will see my SOS signals!"
Peter Longcord, EOLGW spokesman, said “this remarkable artist is doing all he can to save mankind in its final hour."
