Are Human Appearing “ETs” Operating on Earth?

A “Contact Download” suggested to me that perhaps they are.

J. Burkes MD 2019

There is a fascinating literature about human appearing ETs living among us. I even thought I might have met one at the Los Angeles International Airport when I took Dr. Greer there in February of 1994. This was before Ingo Swann published “Penetration.” In that book Swann describes meeting a beautiful humanoid ET being pursued by shadowy black ops types that were monitoring her activities. The man allegedly in charge of the surveillance was the mysterious intelligence official called “Mr. Axelrod.” If I recall correctly he described her as “one of the most dangerous people on the planet.”

Two months before taking Dr. Greer to the LAX, the CSETI leader met with CIA Director Woolsey in December of 1993. The day after the meeting I experienced “an awake dream.” I believe this might also be called a “contact download.” I had the experience while I was in my on call room near the emergency room. After an overnight shift, I needed to get some rest before I hit the 405 Freeway that would take me home. I did not fall asleep however. The “download” was like watching a movie in my mind. It was so detailed, so intense, that I cannot totally convince myself it was merely my imagination. Even though I was part of the CSETI leadership the details of the meeting were highly confidential. I was only told that the Dr. Greer would be meeting in Washington with a ” very highly placed government official.”

In the “awake dream” that I experienced in my on-call room, I was shown three different types of ETs that were supposedly highly specialized in various aspects of interacting with humans. The experience was like a tutorial and was given by rather tall ET with grayish skin who served as “my instructor.” He had on a very high collar that reached up to the back of his head. It reminded me of a priest’s ceremonial garb. I called him MM for “Middle Management.”

In one part of the “download” I found myself at the entrance to the main terminal at Washington National Airport. It was early evening, cold and with a light snow in the air. The phone booths on the sidewalk were the glass-walled cubicle type so popular prior to the 1970s.

A short, almost husky brunette, dressed in a Navy-blue stewardess’ uniform was walking quickly toward a phone booth. I noticed that she wore silver wings on her heavy wool overcoat indicating some kind of company insignia. The cold wind tussled her short brown hair that peeked out from under her blue cap. She was pulling behind her a wheeled luggage bag. Inside her overcoat in the inner pocket, I could actually “see” her travel documents. Passport, tickets and visas, they all seemed to be “in order.” There was just one catch. The documents were all phony! I understood at the level of knowledge that she was not working for an airline. She was not a stewardess. In fact she was not even human! And she was not alone on her mission.

My ET mentor that I called MM “explained” to me that her assignment was a highly specialized security mission. As she stepped into the glass-enclosed phone booth and closed the door behind her, I thought that if she were supposed to be one of the so-called Pleiadean or Nordic types of ETs then somehow she had been cheated. According to the mythology of the UFO subculture, as a Nordic ET she was supposed to be kind of striking beauty, tall slender with long hair was the stereotype. This woman in the phone booth appeared quite physically fit (an appropriate attribute for a member of a security detail) but she was not tall and definitely not pretty.

As I looked at the stocky “stewardess” nearing the telephone booth, the marked contrast between my preconception and what I was “seeing” was bewildering. MM must have sensed my confusion and his explanation was simple and direct. I was made to understand that for security missions like this one at Washington National, operatives were required to alter their typical appearance. Elegant beauties in scanty shimmering garb would not blend in at a chilly airport-loading zone.

All these thoughts and images flashed before me in an instant. I watched the female security agent enter the phone booth. She left her wheeled luggage on the pavement outside. She removed the receiver as if she were making a phone call. Instead she linked up telepathically to a co-worker in the security squad. His appearance was as striking as hers was plain. He was clearly the enforcer. His muscular form looked like it was ready to explode out of his double-breasted tan-colored oversized trench coat. He was stationed inside the terminal about 75 yards away from her.

He stood in one of the small drab waiting areas that made the old airport look like it had fallen on hard times. He was clearly playing the role of a passenger waiting for a flight, pacing back and forth and impatiently looking at his watch. At the level of knowledge I understood that he was carefully monitoring a complex security situation at the main terminal.

The thought occurred to me that he was some kind of bodyguard and that he was waiting to meet someone important at the airport. I strongly suspected that he was armed and perfectly capable of using force if necessary. It seemed however that he also possessed the sophisticated psi capabilities one might expect from an ET intelligence officer of an advanced civilization.

Subtle parapsychological methods were his preferred defensive weapons. If enemy agents threatened whomever he was protecting, then he could telepathically arrange for the opposition to suddenly be distracted, thus allowing the target of their surveillance to slip by unnoticed.

Who could be the person that he was supposed to protect? Why was I “seeing” this little drama at the Washington Airport? I didn’t focus on these questions while I subjectively acquired this material. I was more excited about the prospect that this entire channeling experience was not merely the result of my imagination and that it represented bona fide interspecies communication. Thus concluded this awake dream.

After getting home from the hospital, I was eager to share my experience with trusted contact workers. I called Shari Adamiak, Working Group Coordinator for CSETI Denver. She was in my opinion the third most important person in Dr. Greer’s organization, after the Director and Emily Greer. Just before I spoke to Shari, while half giddy from sleep deprivation from an overnight on duty, it suddenly hit me like a bombshell. The individual that MM’s “Pleiadean friends” were assigned to protect must have been none other than CSETI founder Dr. Steven Greer!

Just two days before he had been scheduled to meet with CIA Director Woolsey. Flying in from North Carolina, Dr. Greer would have landed at National Airport. If some MJ-12 like organization had wanted to place a tail on him or carry out some other mischief, Washington National was the best place to intercept the CSETI Director. Although it seemed like a long shot, I couldn’t ignore the possibility that Dr. Greer was being protected by the ETs as I was shown. Even if the narrative were pure ego-based fantasy it still was quite a story for me to receive in such a novel way.

Two months later after a brief visit to Los Angeles to meet with potential donors, I drove the CSETI Director to Los Angeles International Airport. While in the waiting area with him, I recalled my “awake dream” that was set at Washington National, now called Ronald Reagan International Airport. I couldn’t help but wonder whether it was possible that human appearing ETs might be at LAX to provide “back up” for Dr. Greer. I realized that such a notion was likely just fantasy. As I had these thoughts I noticed a rather unremarkable airline steward looking at me rather nonchalantly. He was about five foot seven, with brown curly hair and a round face. There was nothing unusual about him. I wondered if it were possible that he might be part of an ET security team. As I had this thought, I our eyes met and he nodded to me. I realized that his gesture was likely nothing more than just a polite way of acknowledging a total stranger in a public setting. Or could it have been something else? I quickly turned away. I bid Dr. Greer farewell and he boarded the plane that took him home to Asheville North Carolina.

REQUEST TO THE READER: If you are a contact worker and have received the kind of “contact download” described in the above narrative, please share that information with other contact activists on these social media pages.

“What Planet Are You From?”

…is the title a cute comedy film about a lovesick alien that has a change of heart about wanting to take over the Earth. It is also the question that many “Earthlings” might ask if they were to meet a live ET. 
According to the highly speculative popular UFO literature, many assertions have been made claiming the source of origin of UFOs to be from one star system or another. Top answers to the question include Zeta Reticulae, Arcturus and the Pleiades.

TRIBAL WARFARE ON PLANET EARTH

In the 20th century alone, over 100 million humans were killed in wars and revolutions. Ufologist Stanton Friedman has observed that “tribal warfare” is a major human endeavor. Therefore, it’s extremely unlikely that any information we receive from the so-called ETs about their planet of origin will be accurate. I imagine that self-preservation is a strategy with universal appeal. If the beings associated with UFOs ever told us where they come from, it seems likely that in a few hundred years we might want to export what Stanton called “our brand of ‘friendship’ to the stars.”

SNR, Signal to Noise Ratio

I remember the term that prominent UFO researcher Grant Cameron has applied to the messages that experiencers receive from alleged ET sources. The signal-to-noise ratio is often abbreviated according to Wikipedia as SNR or S/N). In scientific applications it compares the amount of useful signal to background noise. SNR can also be used to compare the ratio of desired information to irrelevant data in say an online discussion. The “noise” here might be off topic comments that prevent relevant data from being exchanged.

When UFO researchers are given supposedly accurate information from unacknowledged sources of so-called insiders, opportunities to verify the data are often non-existent. Thus by dutifully repeating such unverifiable accounts, a journalist or UFO researcher runs the risk of disseminating disinformation meant to confuse or deceive the public.

When it comes to encounters with representatives of what might be called “higher intelligence agencies,” the so-called aliens can be reasonably expected to be doing something very similar. What experiencers are told is probably a mixture of some true information along with disinformation. In addition, it is likely that human experiencers might not have the capacity to accurately transmit knowledge that is beyond their level of comprehension. Experiencers’ narratives might therefore reflect human limitations and not always a deliberate attempt to systematically deceive.

THOSE ATTEMPTING PEACEFUL INTERACTIONS ARE ON THE FRINGE

As a part time promoter of a diverse network of contactees that I call the “Contact Underground,” I count myself among the flying saucer faithful. It is my assessment that the UFO phenomenon is likely, at least in part, extraterrestrial in nature. Attempts to peacefully interact with UFO intelligence in my judgment is a socially responsible course of action.

This endeavor understandably is considered to be fringe by the larger society. Alas contactees have also been disparaged by important elements of the UFO research community. In my opinion the UFO research “mainstream” has placed too much attention in the past on collecting sighting reports. Although perhaps not impossible, it would be a radical step for most UFO investigators to develop protocols that would enable them to directly interact with the alleged ETs as we in the contact network claim that we are doing.

“SPEAK TO ET”

It is now over 70 years since the Roswell Incident and I am compelled to ask how much more can we learn by categorizing the shape, color, position in the sky and other physical parameters of UFOs? Like it or not, if we are going to advance our knowledge of the phenomenon then we may have to do as researcher Grant Cameron has suggested in his many public lectures and that is, “Speak to ET.”

This is what I imagine the contact activists are attempting to do. Although the signal to noise ratio may not always be the best, directly interacting with UFO intelligence and staging Human Initiated Contact Experiences (HICE) is a path that increasing numbers of UFO experiencers are pursuing.

Hypnotic Regressions of Harmful ETs Reflect in FREE Reports

Is the organization FREE soft on “criminal aliens” that are carrying out harmful reproductive experiments on humans?

Close Encounter investigators and experiencers of all types including those that believe contact is a great boon, the contactees, or those abductees that believe they have been victimized by criminal acts, are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to knowing with certainty what is going on. This is true because in my judgment flying saucer intelligences control almost every aspect of our Close Encounters with them.

They target the individuals selected for contact. They choose the time and place of the encounters that typically involve placing the experiencers in an altered state. Memory blocks induce amnesia in the case of missing time events and memories of face to face encounters with ETs often but not always are reported to have a dream like quality to them.

Do we really know what an abduction is? Dr. John Mack in his first book on this subject stated that there is great uncertainty. Are they primarily physical events, psychic or a combination of the two? There certainly are physical components as in the case of small scars and markings on the bodies of experiencers.

But do these marks, which from a medical point of view are somewhat trivial, prove that the entire contact takes place in our physical reality or are the experiencers’ consciousness whisked away to another dimension or virtual reality analogous to the one portrayed in the movie “The Matrix.”? Clearly, we don’t have definitive answers for any of these questions.

This is why I am concerned that the strident rhetoric employed in describing abductions as being essentially physical criminal acts as part of some kind of genetic breeding program to be unwarranted at this time when there are so many unknowns.

Just because the alleged aliens that control our encounters claim that they are from this planet or that, should we believe this to be accurate? If I were an alien I would think twice about giving Earthlings my home address because given our advances in technology. In a century or two humans might want to spread our violent ways to their backyards.

Witnesses recall having sperm or ova sampled and they are told these are genetic experiments and that there are hybrid children running around on spaceships. Does that make it so with great certainty? In my judgment, it does not!

FREE has been criticized as being overly optimistic in terms of the possible benefits of contact and that its volunteer staff are gullible. We should be cognizant of the fact that FREE’s massive data base was derived from experiencers that were asked to share their recollections obtained without the use of hypnosis. Many of the most horrific accounts of alleged alien abuse comes from the use and abuse of hypnosis. But if you were to delve deeper into hypnosis, which can rightly be termed advanced hypnosis, you would find that the benefits it has to offer might solely be the things keeping some people from going insane.

Hypnosis is viewed by many experts as a phenomenon in which a therapist authority figure induces an altered state in a witness that can then be guided by the hypnotist through the power of suggestion to create a false memory. It is hard for me as a physician to accept the reassurances that this is not the case with hypnotists like Bud Hopkins and Dr. Jacobs, both of whom were not trained as clinical psychologists in any peer reviewed, professional academic program. Sensational accounts of lurid alien abuse and hybrid experiments sell quite well in book form and in Hollywood movies. As we know from the financial success of crime and horror stories fear sells big time.

In terms of researchers having a personal agenda to promote, I suggest that this applies more to those that want to promote conflict with the non-human intelligences associated with flying saucers and not necessarily the investigators of research group FREE for which I serve as a volunteer medical consultant.

As far as long-term damage to our genome by aliens or their alleged harvesting of DNA for what might be nefarious purposes, we truly need to discuss what are the likely reproductive dangers to mankind posed by humans themselves. For reasons that are unclear, but thought possibly related to pollution, the sperm count in men of reproductive age has fallen by perhaps 50 percent in the last 100 years.

Environmental toxicologists have alerted the public to possible reproductive hazards coming from our wide use of plastics, pesticides and other industrial products. If the alleged ETs are studying our DNA, it conceivably might be for positive reasons that could benefit people. We don’t know this for certainty of course, but those that stridently insist that we are victims should consider other possibilities when so much is still unknown about the human-non-human relationship.

MECHANISMS OF CONTACT – VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE OF THE SECOND KIND

Joseph Burkes MD 2017

Mechanisms of Contact – Virtual Experiences of the Second Kind

Cases in the literature that support the Virtual Experience Theory, Part Two of Two Parts.
A Virtual Experience of the Second Kind (VE-2) is a real time full sensory technology created illusion that is popularly described as “Virtual Reality,” and is portrayed in the popular sci-fi film “The Matrix.”

The following is a synopsis of Chapter 3 of “Masquerade of Angels”, by Karla Turner, Ph.D. with Ted Rice, Kelt Works 1994. This narrative demonstrates how UFO Intelligence can use psychotronic technology to create a Virtual Experience of the Second Kind.

A MASQUERADE OF ANGELS

Ted Rice was a bank worker and part time psychic. He crew up in the backwaters of Alabama in the 1950s and attended college in Tuscaloosa. Later he moved to work in Shreveport Louisiana. A woman by the name of Marie Jackson trained him in psychic development and brought him into a spiritualist association. By 1990 he was no longer active in the spiritualist movement but still maintained his friendship with Marie who was living in Florida. While staying overnight at Ted’s mobile home Marie reported having a bizarre experience.

THE WALLS OF THE HOUSE DISAPPEARED AND MARIE COULD SEE OUTSIDE

According to Karla Turner’s account, Ted was lying down in his bedroom while Marie was reading in another part of his house. Marie roused Ted and informed him the following,

“ ‘I was reading in bed,’ Marie told him, ‘still pacing, and don’t feel like I drifted off to sleep. I raised up in the bed and looked around, and suddenly all the walls in the trailer just, just disappeared!’… ‘I could see outside. I could see from one end of the trailer to the other, and I could see all the way down into your bedroom. The walls were just gone!… I saw the two strangest spirits I’ve ever seen in my life! They came right through where the wall should be, and they walked up and started trying to take me outside.’ ’’

According to Dr. Turner’s narrative Marie vigorously protested to the “small grayish beings” that subsequently left her alone.

Chapter Five of “Masquerade of Angels” contains one of the remarkable contact experiences ever described in the UFO literature. Its importance should not be underestimated because if accurate, it reveals the absolutely tremendous psychic capability of non-human intelligence to create illusion. Dr. Turner’s account raises disturbing questions for the entire UFO research community and challenges some of the most cherished notions of the saucer subculture about the nature of CE-3s and CE-4s.

AN EXPERIENCER IS ENVELOPED BY A BLUE GLOW WITH LIGHTNING TRAILS

Soon after Marie’s encounter in Ted’s mobile home, he traveled to visit her in Florida. Another masquerade of angels = mechanisms contact - virtual experiences second kindgood friend of Marie’s called Amelia Reynolds was also visiting her. After several hours of conversation the three retired for the night. Ted was assigned to the bedroom down the hall. Marie and Amelia slept in twin beds in a room on the other side of the house.

In the middle of the night Marie was reportedly awakened by Amelia. She told Marie that she could hear a low flying helicopter flying. Marie reportedly heard no such sound.

Amelia suddenly froze while staring up at the ceiling. According to the narrative Amelia told Marie that she was able to view the copter as if the ceiling and roof had completely disappeared.

‘I’m not asleep.’ Amelia protested, raising her head from the pillow. Her eyes still gazed upwards. ‘I swear to you. I can see a helicopter right up there! By that big tree with all the leaves. I see the front of the thing, it’s rounded and the legs are folded underneath.’

‘Well, why can’t I see it, then?’ Marie asked, exasperated. ‘I don’t know. Amelia replied.’ “A bluish glow then reportedly materialized around Amelia while she sat up in bed. She told Marie that she felt paralyzed and was unable to move despite Marie’s urgings to “Get out of there!”

Amelia then described the appearance in the bedroom of two non-human beings, one tall green and lizard like, the other shorter and blue-black in color. Marie told Amelia that she did not see them and shouted for Ted to come and help.

According to Dr Turner’s account Ted saw a “blue glow” as he approached the bedroom. It was “emanating from the open doorway.” Dr Karla Turner’s narrative continues.

“Inside, Marie had circled around the room and was waiting for him, pressed back against the farthest wall from where Amelia lay motionless, enveloped in the brilliant light. Ted stepped in uncertainly and then stopped dead in his tracks, staring.”… They inched closer to the bed, still keeping a healthy distance from the blue glow that was now filled with tiny, rapid explosions of lightning trails. “ Marie yelled at Amelia to “Get out of there.”

Karla Turner’s remarkable account continues with Amelia complaining that she could hardly hear Marie. Ted inquired if Amelia was being hurt in anyway. Her response was that she was not. Ted counseled Marie that they should not take any drastic action. “We don’t know what might happen if we try to pull her out of that energy field….” The encounter came to a close when the blue light suddenly flashed off.

All during the experience, neither Marie nor Ted could hear or see the beings and the helicopter that Amelia reported seeing. She later reported not being aware of the bluish sphere of light that both Ted and Marie had reportedly witnessed.

PSYCHOTRONIC TECHNOLOGY OF THE HIGHEST FORM

What is so remarkable about this narrative is that it describes two witnesses that allegedly were able to observe a kind of “virtual reality” process at very close range. If the encounter truly unfolded as described in the “Masquerade of Angels,” perhaps we have been given a very rare glimpse at the mechanism employed to stage some of the “high strangeness” interactions that are being labeled “alien abductions.”

Ted Rice and Marie Jackson were in full psychomotor control of their bodies when they observed Marie actively hallucinating. The presence of the blue light, and lightning like flashes within the orb that surrounded Amelia, all point to some kind of advanced technology that took control of her mental processes by creating a very convincing illusion. Thus we are dealing with an intelligence that can not only simulate reality for the chosen target individual, but can also stage the encounter under circumstances allowing others to closely witness the event.

As we see from the events described in “Masquerade of Angels”, the intelligence responsible for these bizarre encounters may have the capability to produce a kind of “virtual reality,” an altered state of consciousness that an experiencer might not be unable to distinguish from every day-run-of-the-mill reality.

The entire book “Masquerade of Angels” by Dr. Karla Turner is available to read on line as a pdf file which can be format with a sodapdf software.

Mechanisms of Contact – Virtual Experience of the Second Kind

VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE OF THE SECOND KIND

Joseph Burkes MD 2017

Cases in the literature that support the Virtual Experience Theory, Part One of Two Parts.
A Virtual Experience of the Second Kind (VE-2) is a real time full sensory technology created illusion that is popularly described as “Virtual Reality,” and is portrayed in the popular sci-fi film “The Matrix.”

Virtual Experience Introduction:

What if UFO Intelligence is as advanced in the psi arena as they apparently are in “spacecraft” design? UFOs have been here for a long time. Whatever their origins are, flying saucer technologies are thousands, perhaps even millions of years more advanced than terrestrial engineering achievements.

When it comes to so-called “alien abductions” also designated as Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind, experiencers and investigators alike are confronted by many strange inconsistencies. Why has an “alien abduction” never been credibly captured on video? There has never been a report of the police being able to stop one in progress?

The Virtual Experience Theory attempts to answer these questions in the context of discussing what I believe are the tremendous psychic powers of this “otherness” that many experiencers now call “ET.”

What cases in the UFO literature support a mechanism of flying saucer intelligence being able to create virtual reality types of encounters? I offer two cases with the hope that these Virtual Experience narratives will facilitate additional testimony to surface.

CASE ONE AUSTRALIA 1970s

One example of a “virtual reality” type of case is described by a popular VR article and later mentioned in “The Chinese Roswell: UFO Encounters in the Far East from Ancient Times to the Present.” This book was written by German UFO researcher Harwig Hausdorf and was published in 1998 by New Paradigm Books.

Hausdorf describes a series of encounters that reportedly occurred in 1972 and 1973. They took place in a mountainous region just southeast of Melbourne, Australia. The principle witness was Maureen Puddy. She reported having a UFO experience on July 5, 1972.

While driving alone in a desolate area her car was allegedly engulfed in an intense blue light. As described in Hausdorf’s account, she saw a saucer shaped craft. It had “a diameter of 100 feet, and was hovering at a height of two telephone poles above her.” She reportedly was terrified by this encounter and she sped away. The UFO then followed her for some eight miles before moving away.

Several weeks later while driving on the same road Maureen Puddy had another contact experience. This time the engine died when the same intense blue light flooded her car. She reported hearing “a voice in her head: ‘Take it easy,’ it said. ‘We don’t want to hurt you.’ Then it added, ‘Contact the media.’

Puddy returned several times to the same desolate location in February of 1973. On one occasion two researchers accompanied her from the citizens research group, VUFORS. She informed them that while driving to the location she had noticed a small being wearing gold overalls inside the car with her.

“While the three of them were discussing the appearance of the entity, Maureen thought she saw it again. This time it seemed like it was coming straight at the car. It stopped just in front of the left headlight.”

Maureen reportedly became agitated. Apparently at no time could the two VUFORS investigators see the small being in golden coveralls. Puddy then stated that she was being taken against her will into a craft that she believed was overhead. The blue light according to Maureen Puddy was present again.

While the VUFORS investigators sat in the car with her, Puddy described finding herself in a windowless room. She also said that in front of her was “a mushroom-like object that seemed to have a gelatinous liquid sloshing around inside it.” After Maureen Purdy finished describing to the two Australian UFO researchers what she imagined was an alien abduction experience, she calmed down.

German UFO author Harwig Hausdorf summed up this bizarre encounter.

“What was particularly odd about this entire incident, of course, was that Maureen Puddy never physically left the car during the whole time she was speaking. At all times, she was in full sight of the two UFO researchers. Nor could either of them ever see the small entity in gold overalls, nor even the intense blue light of the hovering UFO. It was as if the whole incident had taken place entirely inside Maureen Puddy’s head.”

If this account accurately describes what transpired over 40 years ago on an Australian highway, we see yet another example of how non-human intelligence of a presumed ET nature can skillfully interact with human consciousness by creating illusion. The very word “abduction” describes a violent physical act. However “abduction” may not be appropriate if the targeted human subject experiences a kind of theater of the mind and goes nowhere. I have designated this contact mechanism as a “Virtual Experience of a Second Kind (VE-2)

Perhaps a better term than “alien abduction” might be UPI, an “Unsolicited Psychic Interaction.” Unfortunately our cultural authorities, media and scientists alike seem to be afflicted with what might described as “manic denial” when it comes to not only the reality of UFOs, but also the importance of all parapsychological phenomenon. When the media portrays psi it is almost always used as a means to entertain and not to responsibly inform the public.

I suspect that the task to responsibly educate will fall on the shoulders of the UFO truth movement and the countless contact experiencers and their supporters. In my judgment these are the people that will not afraid to ask the hard questions and perhaps even be willing to entertain a notion as disturbing as my Virtual Experience Theory.

In Part Two, I discuss a case from Dr Karla Turner’s “Masquerade of Angels” that supports the illusory mechanism of contact that I call a Virtual Experience of the Second Kind.
