I Own the Southern Cross

I Own the Southern Cross
Wellington, New Zealand        November 2012 - ongoing

Actionaut now holds complete sovereign rights in the key celestial territories of the Southern Cross (Crux constellation) of the Milky Way Galaxy, and these rights have been affirmed by the United States legal system and copyright office and awaiting further acknowledgement from the United Nations. 

The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, signed by a majority of the nations of Earth, is the primary governing instrument concerning Space Law.  Article 2 states that Outer Space shall not be subject to national appropriation, thus forbidding nations from extending their borders outside of Earth.  This does not, however rule out the possibility of a private citizen executing a property claim in Outer Space. 

I have claimed ownership of the Southern Cross constellation ("the Crux") of the Milky Way Galaxy, and own all of the planetary systems and intersteller traffic within the gravitational pull of the Southern Cross, including but not limited to asteroidal and lunar materials. My claim of ownership was accepted and verified by the US legal system on December 6, 2012. I also have filed and own copyright claims to the Southern Cross through the US Copyright Office, and documentation has been notarized by members of the New Zealand legal community and mailed to key members of the International community. 



Below is actual documentation, followed by full text for easier reading.

FULL TEXT of CLAIM OF OWNERSHIP:


CLAIM OF OWNERSHIP

 

This document is to certify that Brinkley T. Warren has claimed ownership of six stars including: Beta Crucis (also identified as Mimosa or Becrux), Alpha Crucis A (also identified as Alpha Crucis α1 Cru (α Cru A)(Acrux) ), Gamma Crucis (also identified as Gamma Crucis(Gacrux)), Alpha Crucis B (also identified as Alpha Crucis α2 Cru (α Cru B) (Acrux)),Delta Crucis (Decrux), and Epsilon Crucis (also identified as Epsilon Crux (Juxta Crucem). The six stars that make up the Southern Cross (“The Crux”) in the Milky Way galaxy, along with any planetary systems within the gravitational systems of these six stars, and/or any form of interstellar traffic or commerce within the gravitational systems of these six stars, including but not limited to asteroidal and lunar materials.

 

Basis for Ownership

The Moon Treaty of 1967 signed by the United States and member nations of the United Nations, states that governments of the parties involved in such treaty may not claim ownership of celestial bodies.

“Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to             

national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation,

or by any other means.” (Article 2)

 

Article 2 precludes the ownership or occupation of the moon and other celestial bodies by governments, but does not address individual ownership.  The basis of my ownership claim is, therefore, that no country’s government, including the United States, may deny our claim to ownership. The United Nations is not a government and, therefore, may not adopt laws concerning private citizens of its’ member nations.

 

Details of Entails

 

1.     As afore mentioned, the six stars BetaCrucis, Alpha Crucis A, Gamma Crucis, Alpha Crucis B, Delta Crucis, and Epsilon Crucis, within the “Southern Cross Constellation” the Milky Way galaxy. Specifically the entire mass of each star and all or any light emanating from any of them.

 

2.     To avoid confusion with current or future stars or constellations assigned similar nomenclature,  the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory Star Catalog (SAO Staff 1966; USNO, ADC 1990) description for each claimed star is as follows:

Statement of Intention

I do not plan to exploit citizens or the transcosmic consciousness of these stars, nor charge for the light or photons emitted by the aforementioned stars. However, I may sell or otherwise exploit the natural resources, land formations, minerals, or non-citizen life forms from the aforementioned stars, and create and modify the sovereign laws and policies, which govern the given territories.

As of the date of this claim, no provisions within any Earthly nation's governmental constitution  has thus far made provisions or claims for the aforementioned six celestial bodies. Therefore, no one on Earth can deny my claim. Should an entity from “outer space” or worlds other than Earth wish to contest my claim I would be happy to discuss their concerns and figure something out over a few Margaritas and tacos. To negotiate in such a manner would be acceptable and completely rational in light of such circumstances. I may start a new government on any or all of these stars and certainly maintain the right to challenge any governments or laws that infringe upon the territories or my transcosmic supraconscious transgalactic interstellar sovereignty.

This document attests Reverend Brinkley Thomas Warren (Actionaut) enjoys exclusive ownership of the Southern Cross; all six of its stars and the photons, light, and related celestial bodies subject to its gravitational pull.
