  UFO's
   

Our mass media is on an extraterrestrial kick. Watch any television or read any current magazine and you’ll usually find at least one reference to UFOs and their alien pilots. Print ad’s and TV commercials abound with the space aliens and their antics. It seems the popular notion is that UFOs (or Flying Saucers) are spacecraft from other planets. Many researchers no longer ask: “what are UFOs?” Instead they question, “What planet are they from?” But what do we really know about unidentified flying objects?

As any investigator of UFOs know, the phenomenon is multifaceted, it seems to first be one way, then suddenly another. People witness what appears to be unknown solid objects in the air that suddenly fade away like ghosts. Others come into contact with beings that seem to be from the unknown craft. These creatures come in all shapes and sizes, and claim to be from just about anywhere. There have been so many witnesses over the years that we can no longer simply dismiss all such sightings as mistakes, hoaxes or delusion. But neither can we simply except UFO’s at face value as visitors from other planets.

Strange sights in our skies is nothing new. For as long as we have had written records, reports of UFOs have been made. Strange entities are also not new to mankind’s history. Many such beings in the past have claimed to be from the heavens. Since the earliest times, mankind has felt that there must exist a mind superior to his own. Until now, Man has always thought of supreme beings in a religious context. That is why until the industrial revolution, sightings of UFOs and contacts with strange creatures were thought of as mystical experiences.

With ‘Science’ as the new religion, the former “Gods” and “Angels” have now turned into the “ET’s” and “Grays.” In fifty years we have witnessed the birth of a new religion, the church of interplanetary visitors. As with other religions, proof is not needed, only faith. What is it that has converted so many to the extraterrestrial dogma? From the very beginning of the modern UFO era (1947) some witnesses claimed to have been contacted by the occupants of the Flying Saucers. These creatures said they were from other worlds, usually planets from our own solar system.

The contactees were shown pictures of the home planets, some even claimed to have been taken to these other worlds. They were convinced their experiences were real. Not every UFO sighting led to an occupant sighting, nor did all entity sightings lead to communication with the witness.

During the Europe UFO flap of 1952, strange creatures, apparently associated with the UFOs were reported by witnesses. However, there was little actual communication between the beings and witnesses. Generally the stories were the same, the witness, while out at night, spots a strange metallic object on the ground, close by is seen one or several humanoids. After a few seconds the beings re-enter the object which then flies away. The entities sighted range in description from tall blond, blue-eyed humans, to short hairy dwarfs.

As time went by these creatures no longer ran away, but instead sought to communicate with people, usually to warn of the dire results of using atomic weapons. A favourite subject of aliens in the 1950’s. They also spoke of their home worlds, places of utopian peace and beauty, but now farther away, in other solar systems or as close by as the center of our hollow earth. Again the witnesses accepted what they heard as the truth. They spread the information through self-published pamphlets, books, radio talk shows and television. These contactees were universally laughed at and discredited. However, maybe we should have considered that the contactee had a real experience, but was then fed false information.

Emanuel Swedenborg once wrote: “when spirits begin to speak with man you should not listen to anything they say, for surely they will lie.” Perhaps our friends from the Flying Saucers are kin to the spirits that Swedenborg wrote of. “They tell such wondrous tales.”

What are we dealing with then? The UFO phenomenon does seem to be controlled; it does follow intelligent patterns. But the information given to us by the ufonauts is generally false, and is, perhaps, a deliberate smoke screen to cover-up what really is going on. Whatever the UFOs are up to, they are doing it on a world wide scale. And it’s inevitable that they should from time to time come in contact with some of us. When such contacts do occur, they deliberately hand out ridiculous information. Our belief systems are exploited. This whole mystery has been designed not only to keep us confused and sceptical, but to convince us that we are hosts to visitors from other planets. Someone is very interested in keeping this idea alive.

Starting in the 1970’s and continuing through the 90’s, the “Alien Abduction” story appears to be a recent development in the ever growing UFO mystery. Research has shown however, that this story has roots extending as far back as writings in ancient sumerian texts, to the books of the Bible. For years, people saying they’ve been snatched up by non-human entities has not been an uncommon occurrence. Perhaps one of the best researched incidents is the alleged abduction by aliens of Betty and Barney Hill. Their story is covered in the excellent book, The Interrupted Journey by John Fuller. The Hill’s experience would serve as a template as others over the years would report similar abductions.

The number of participants involved also increased. Whereas in the past, usually only one person was abducted, now reports of whole carloads of people being kidnapped have surfaced. In the 1980’s , abduction phenomenon changed from random encounters on dark roadways, to people being taken from their beds in the middle of the night. As more and more people came forward to tell of their encounters, similarities in the details became apparent.

What was interesting in the early days of abduction research, was that people who had no previous knowledge about UFOs were telling practically the same story. This was before the extensive media attention on abduction experiences, so it was unlikely that all the witnesses could have been influenced by the same outside sources.

Today the abduction stories along with the abductors have become ingrained in modern folklore. The stories and descriptions of the alleged aliens have become homogenized. The early stories saw a multitude of events and entities. Now the entities described almost always are what are now known as the “Grays.” Short humanoid creatures with grey skin, large heads, and huge black eyes. The UFO flaps in the fifties and sixties saw reports of all kinds of different creatures. Few past sightings have surfaced that coincide with recent descriptions of the grays.

Are we seeing a cultural condition? Or maybe some kind of human psychological bias? Entity reports from other countries continue to show a wide range of descriptions. This detail could enable us to better understand the nature of this mysterious phenomenon.

Of the case histories we’ve studied in this article, most are purely anecdotal, comprising witness testimony to an event for which that testimony generally constitutes the only evidence. It could be possible that every witness is either lying or deluded, even in those cases where more then one person, strangers to one another, report the same experience. I believe, though, that most of these reported cases really did, in some form, actually occur. What form that experience seemed to take, and what it’s real nature was, is another matter. In many cases, the witness offered no interpretation of their experience. They simply said what had happened to them and hoped others would explain it.

What are the facts with these cases? How are they being explained? Beings that seem to accompany UFOs are described by witnesses as short humanoids, tall beings, or even normal looking humans. Most of them do not match the standard descriptions that have been made so popular by rabid believers or by the media. This is the dilemma that faces modern UFO research. In the eagerness to grasp onto a few tentative patterns, which are often reinforced by bombarding witnesses with leading questions under hypnosis, many researchers actually select the cases that match their pre-existing expectations.

Naturally, this can lead to skewed results. However, there is a genuine UFO phenomenon. Years of research with thousands of witnesses over the years have convinced me of this fact. This phenomenon is not explained though by the revelations of alleged government agents. Nor by such UFO cult groups as Heavens Gate. The genuine UFO phenomenon appears to be associated with a form of non-human consciousness that manipulates space/time in ways we do not understand. Most researchers though, still cling to the notion that any non-human form of conscious must be from outer space.

The simple truth is if there is a form of life and consciousness that operates on properties of space/time we have not yet discovered, then it doesn’t have to be extraterrestrial. It could come from any place and from any time, even our own world. Past encounters with strange entities seem to show an almost personal connection with the witness. Personal beliefs of the witness appear to be known and exploited by the contacting beings. Before anyone had even heard of other planets we believed in fairies and sprites. We still have records of people who claimed encounters with these creatures, much like modern UFO encounters. Today we don’t believe in the wee folk. Yet the same basic phenomenon still occurs. It has just been dressed in more modern, space-aged clothes.

It is easy to speculate, everyone has their favourite theory. However, instead of letting personal theory control investigations, researchers instead need to listen to what is being said by the witnesses. Offer no explanations, because the phenomenon seems to conform to the participants expectations. Look at the evidence that has been gathered over the last one thousand years, not just the last fifty. What is being seen? What has been said? What is the real evidence that is being presented to us? Only through knowledge will we begin to understand the enduring mysteries in our skies.

  1. Former astronaut Gordon Cooper talks about bogies over Europe, and Edwards Air Force base

    “We have contact with alien cultures.” -Astronaut Dr. Brian O’leary

    “The U.S. Government hasn’t maintained secrecy regarding UFOs It’s been leaking out all over the place. But the way it’s been handled is by denial, by denying the truth of the documents that have leaked. By attempting to show them as fraudulent, as bogus of some sort. There has been a very large disinformation and misinformation effort around this whole area. And one must wonder, how better to hide something out in the open than just to say, ‘It isn’t there. You’re deceiving yourself if you think this is true.’ And yet, there it is right in front of you. So it’s a disinformation effort that’s concerning here, not the fact that they have kept the secret. They haven’t kept it. It’s been getting out into the public for fifty years or more.” -Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Apollo astronaut and moonwalker

  2. No lights, over 50 years ago at age 8, the year was 1956, I witnessed a
    landing of one of the ufo”s that invaded my former home town in southern
    California, all my life I assumed I was the only one who witnessed the event
    that morning, two days before my mother passed away I asked her if there
    was anything that may have happened in my lifetime that she seen a change in
    me when I was a child, she broke into tears and started to tell me about
    that day in 1956 , at this time I’m in shock listening to her recount of
    everything that took place and what they looked like and how they were
    dressed, she kept her story to herself for over 50 years. During the
    exchange of our conversations helped me understand the scene more clearer,
    my question to her was did you tell my dad about the incident (answer was
    NO ) and the next was what happened after. That morning I was sitting on a
    blanket under a small tree in our front yard and my mother not knowing where
    I was, while looking into the sky I noticed what looked like a formation of
    low flying planes ( LOTS OF THEM ) that kept getting lower & lower and
    slowing up with no sound and no lights that I can remember. The next thing I
    see about 40 yards in front of me is a dull silver in color craft come to a
    sudden halt at roof top level it skipped like a speed boat coming to a halt
    on water, as I’m watching this occur I can see people rocking back and forth
    like a car coming to a sudden stop through window portals, the craft then
    came to a level resting position which appeared to be right over the top of
    the house across the street, I see them through the windows before they see
    me, I watch them slowly adjust themselhs to comfortable rest, they looked to
    be 6 to 7 of them deep in a row now having arms on control panels looking at
    large square screens ( LIKE A COMPUTER TODAY ) , the seats were upright, the
    height being above there heads, they had a beige color uniform on like a
    military dress uniform from the 1950″s ear, but no frazil, they had helmets
    on that looked like the 1950″s German war helmet almost the same color as
    there clothing, now one has seen me and I become fixed on his eyes, now all
    I can focus on is the rest of them begin to turn and focus on me like a slow
    motion double take and then freeze there very large eyes on me, ( DIAMOND OR
    HEART SHAPE ) just like they explain the way the GRAYS look in the face. I
    now see to the left of the windows a door open with a walk out landing and
    extended stairway standing were two of them, one to the left side appeared
    to be 8 feet or taller dressed in green clothing with a hat on that looked
    like a marine field style cap from the 1950″s, this one appeared to be
    human, he was looking down at the other one and commucating to him, he was
    less than half the size of the other one, this one was dressed almost like
    the others with huge eyes, they now are looking back at me and I glance to
    the right to see all the eyes looking at me and they all at one time turned
    there heads to the left and right in order looking at each other as
    something shocked them and they froze there eyes on my direction not at my
    eyes this time, I look back at the two on the stair and find them still
    looking at me, from that point I can’t remember a thing, I rationalize this
    scene in my mind almost all my life. My mother filled one of the missing
    links as to why they looked at each other and then looked at a different
    direction and why the two on the stair looked stunned. The only thing I
    could get out of her is that she was looking for me and walked out the front
    door of our house and seen me under the tree looking up and she witnessed
    the event herself, she became scared and said she grabbed me and ran into
    the house and we hid in her bedroom closet for many hours, all of which I do
    not remember, 50 years later ( I KNOW WHAT I SAW ) and my mother confirmed
    it by never hearing my story.
