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 By 1990 he was no longer active in the spiritualist movement but still maintained his friendship with Marie who was living in Florida.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 by googling the phrase.

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 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.
