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 By 1990 he was no longer active in the spiritualist movement but still maintained his friendship with Marie who was living in Florida.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

An Exoconscious Human Reality

By Rebecca Hardcastle Wright, PhD

During the so-called winter of 2005 in Scottsdale, Arizona, I taught one of the first ufology college courses in the nation. Naively, I assumed that my class would be filled with students curious about the history of UFOs, as the announced curriculum was a general history of ufology, beginning in 1887. Yet, by the end of the first class, I realized that instead of the historically curious, my class was filled with ET Experiencers, eager to discuss how UFOs and ET contact changed their view of reality.

Teaching ufology to students who were eager to integrate anomalous experiences into their view of reality, provided a further impetus to define and clarify Exoconsciousness, a concept birthed out of my own extensive ET Experiences.

The experiential reality of Exoconsciousness posits that all humans have the innate ability to connect and communicate with Extraterrestrials. This ability is sourced in the Extraterrestrial origins, shared multidimensions and abilities of human consciousness.   In other words, we humans have a natural ability to form a world-view that integrates Extraterrestrial experiences. And in doing so, we become mature, integrated Exoconscious Humans.

This article examines and expands the concept of an Exoconscious Human Reality via 1) Philosophy and Quantum Science, 2) A contrast and comparison of Exoconscious Reality with Virtual Reality (VR) Technology, Military Mind Control Programs and 3) Mature, Multidimensional Extraterrestrial Experiencers as the Source of Exoconsciousness, and ultimately, ufology.

Quantum Eclipses Philosophy

From the Greeks to the Romans through the late 18th Century, philosophers fiercely debated the nature of reality and the nature of truth, often coming to blows between Empiricists, who required the obvious facts of our senses, and the Rationalists who required pure reason to construct reality. Philosophy was an intellectual battlefield until Kant mediated by affirming the empirical need for sense experience to define reality and reconciled it with reason by stating that experience is possible through mental structures that were deeper than ideas and existed regardless of the material world.

The Kantian solution, for a time, defined reality. But eventually, the arguments recommenced, and unfortunately, oftentimes philosophical confusion reigned. Philosophical reality was constructed and deconstructed, mythologized and demythologized, and even exhaustively bracketed to no avail.

Then in the early 1900s, quantum physics sent a simmering seismic quake, muting the old philosophical arguments. Through the now famous double slit experiment, scientists claimed that our thoughts determine reality. The awareness (and intention) of the observer determined the behavior of particles passing through the double slit. Furthermore, scientists claimed that under certain conditions electrons would act like waves and at other times like particles, depending on the expectations or intentions of the observer.

Within a few decades, philosophy was in hospice. Nearly dying, if not dead. Quantum science sucked all the oxygen necessary for intellectual argument out of the room.

But quantum science didn’t stop there. It theorized how our human energy field of thoughts, emotions, and intentions interacts with the quantum field. We live amid an oscillation of the quantum field, where reality flashes in and out of existence. But through the oscillation, our human consciousness remains constant and doesn’t flash. Instead, our consciousness informs the flashing quantum field as to what form to adopt at the quantum level. Attention: Humans create Reality. Source.

As I incrementally grasped Quantum Physics, eventually, I identified it as a key pillar in Exoconsciousness. My quantum thought wave collapsed into confirmation. You see, Exoconsciousness is all about experience. The subjective experience of anomalous phenomenon as reality.

Furthermore, Exoconsciousness only worked in a system that expanded and defined consciousness out of the brain into a field. In other words, the Exoconscious Human is defined beyond their Brain. Consciousness is a field in which the human participates.

Computer engineer all the detailed neural networked brains you want. You will not create consciousness. Your field is too small. You lack the experience of human consciousness as a field.

Virtual Reality Technology

Following the holidays of 2016, I walked down the aisles of disarrayed, discarded gifts in a big box store. A graveyard of gadgets nobody wanted. Strewn amid the clutter were racks of clumsy Virtual Reality goggles. Alone and discounted.  The plight of the unpurchased gift. Source.

What happened? VR was supposed to be the next Go Pro sellout holiday gift.

VR is a system designed for you to see what the technical developers want you to see, so that you believe the reality that they want you to believe. Ideally, VR was to inspire deeper belief in a gaming reality.  Its technological trick was to fool you. But instead, the holiday tables were turned.

In VR, visual reality is primary. They focus (pardon the pun) on the assumption that what the eye sees creates reality. If you can trick the mind with enhanced images, sound, and even artificial tactile sensations; then the viewer’s mind would be convinced that VR was real.

So perhaps at some future holiday, newly technologically advanced VR goggles will be a sellout. But not as of last holiday season.

Though whispered in Silicon Valley corridors and barred from public knowledge, VR engineers were forced to admit that as hard as they worked on tweaking technology, the adolescent viewers flocked to low tech offerings like YouTube with its amateur actors, infantile visuals, and often irritating sounds. Human consciousness chose low tech YouTube over high tech VR.

Almost 5 billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day. Source.

What does this mean? It means that the human mind chose to participate in a YouTube reality created by other humans, over a high-tech system designed to make you see what computer engineers wanted you to see.  Strike one for the Transhuman technologically created reality.

MILAB Trauma Reality

Our Earth reality of human created culture is challenging. It is certainly tempting for Exoconscious ET experiencers to unhook from 3-D Earth reality, especially when we are traumatized. Many of us are certified Out of Body experts. We enjoy traveling the cosmos of consciousness. Off Earth.

Yet, as we mature, we realize that our healthy ability to use our multidimensional mind depends on our integration with Earth energies.  We live, breathe, and form our being on our home planet Earth. Our Earth experience is foundational for our ability to integrate our multidimensional ET abilities.

And yet, Earth is traumatic, confusing, and incoherent. Both challenging and beautiful.

Exoconscious ET Experiencers come face to face with trauma and suffering. We learn about the reality of MILABS, military alien abduction programs. We meet people who suffered the slings and arrows of MILABS. Our empathetic nature engages us with their suffering. We feel their trauma. And like Melinda Leslie, we wonder if MILABS often chose ET Experiencers who were followed by the military and re-abducted.  Source.

Fortunately, as we mature and integrate, our fear transforms into anger and resentment until we calm as we educate ourselves to the Earth reality of Military Intelligence mind control programs.

MKUltra, a top-secret CIA series mind control programs, began in the 1950s. These programs were developed for the scientific manipulation of the human mind. Get it—human brains. Not consciousness. They experimented with our brains and behaviors. If we do this, will you do that?

Like a serialized television production, the mind control programs changed their propaganda branding with new names: Project Chatter (1947), Project Bluebird (1950), Project Artichoke (1951). To name a few. Until congressional pressure publicly terminated MKUltra in 1960s. I imagine MKUltra was sent to the Intel eternal life division where it mutated into an even more top-secret classification of programs. Free of pesky congressional oversight. Intel knows how to keep a good thing going.

So, it was no surprise when mind control programs morphed into alien abductions. Military Intel was on a roll and wanted to see how far they could push the evil alien trauma. Unfortunately for humans, they were able to push some of us to the breaking point. Lives were shattered by MILABS.

MILABS=Misery.

Helmut Lammer’s 1999 book Milabs: Military Mind Control and Alien Abduction brought MILABS mainstream. His book provided extensive research and case studies of abductees whose experience included a military component. As the military is want to do, often they experimented on their own. Enlisted troops were drafted into these traumatic programs without their knowledge.

Really? What category of Earth species experiments on their own?

In the 1990’s, Dr. Karla Turner’s MILAB research added a virtual reality MILAB aspect as the military gamed us with reptilians, implants, and high strangeness energy fields. Source. Not to be outdone by Hollywood, MILABS sexualized ET and then handed out script permission slips to late night comics to laugh through joke after joke about ET experiencers.

We ET Experiencers didn’t know whether to laugh with the comics…or cry. Many of us did neither. Instead, we refused to listen to the circus. We chose to do our research. MILABS, VR, MKUltra were real. They were a segment of our reality. And we wanted to know our reality in order to determine what was real and what was fake programming.

Turns out Fakedom ruled. Here is a complete list of all 149 MKULTRA subprojects. Who, When, What, Where, Why, and How, and links to FOIA documents available for each subproject. www.illuminatirex.com/list-of-mkultra-subprojects/

Many of us entered Fred Burks’ class where he schooled us in the history of mind control. Fred’s class is the Public Education and Empowerment Resource Service (PEERS). www.peerservice.org/I am still a student.

Something happens to humans when we submerge ourselves in a subject. We experience its breadth and depth. We recognize patterns and make connections. We know nuance. And in time, our trauma reaction lessens. Withers. We are calm among a storm of information, because eventually, much of it is just so familiar. We can now swim in the field of consciousness filled with information—and not drown in our own fear. Exoconscious life gets easier.

Mature and Multidimensional Consciousness

Many of us born in the 40s, 50s, and 60s are what Dolores Cannon described as the First Wave. We came onshore, crawled out of our cosmic shell, lumbered into life and learned to live as multi-dimensional humans. We live among other waves who are still coming on shore. One foot in the cosmos and one foot in the Earth. Balanced. Healthy. Happy.

Amid a culture often untethered to either truth or authentic experience, we found ourselves wondering what all the fuss is about. We lived a life full of ET contact. It’s now second nature.

And yet, we struggle when a rogue, unexpected wave of cultural information washes over us. One of the reasons we struggle is because we are caught in the undertow of what Professor Timothy Morton of Rice University calls “hyperobjects”—entities of such vast temporal and spatial dimensions that they defeat traditional ideas about what a thing is in the first place. Hyperobjects are concepts that feel as though they are beyond reason, much less solutions. Too big to think about.

I wonder if these too big to think about concepts (he cites global warming, I cite the Space Fence) are hyperobjects or instead are they ideas that are deliberately overinflated to keep humans flailing and filled with fear. Like programmed cognitive dissonance, overinflated concepts are more in line with MKUltra mind control programming.  If we feel manipulated, then chances are it’s MKUltra or sourced in mind control games.

What are we to do?

Exoconscious Humans find that vigorous research and a reliance on our innate ability to learn and live in multidimensional consciousness quickly deflates the overinflated. We don’t duck, run, or deny reality. We research and learn, trusting our multi-dimensional mind to bring forth the information we need from our field of consciousness.

Exoconscious Humans

Writing this article, I reached out to two members of our Community of the Exoconscious. (COTE) I asked them to share their ET Exoconscious reality as they matured and developed through ET contact.

Neil Gould: This is Neil Gould’s response, in his words.

Species: Bony, Robed, 4.5ft, totally telepathic

Experience: Traumatic but positive

My Age: 7yrs

Downloads began with Contact at age 7. Development of my ‘conscious awareness’ ran with 2 programs, our reality as we see and experience it and the larger multidimensional reality into which we evolve. The two programs frequently conflicted with each other resulting in disruption during education and relationships [ADHD & ADD]. Awareness of the multidimensional reality allows one to detect changes such as perturbations in frequencies associated with lies and negative influence, or any disruption that would deflect our species from its destined course of conscious evolution.  Religion and its associated dogma, Financial structures and its associated manipulation, Politics and its associated spin, Military and its associated war economy to name but a few of the obvious perturbations that disrupt the field of consciousness of the experiencer. Deep anxiety or intimate conversations surrounding the ET phenomenon often bring about paranormal intrusions such as lights, craft or even precognition.

The human world view is influenced by the material status quo to which our senses cooperate each minute of the day. The ET mind that we sense appears topological and nonlinear and preoccupied on a spiritual scientific plane…painful, joyful and more.

The effects of the program are dramatically increased through life. As an example, in the year 2000, 4 massive craft flew over Hong Kong witnessed by 20 of us. The following day I experienced an epiphany which again resulted in more craft “hanging around” in full view others.

Mental processing quantum leaped and I searched for more answers; it was time to take the ETI off the wall and integrate it into my everyday life. We experiencers know what that means.

I had recognized just how skewered our world view really is; communicating this to friends, often strains relationships. Challenging a human grounded mind with the ETI creates cognitive problems which friends and family are not able to come to terms with and unable to deal with these chinks in the world view.

The change in world view was given in stages, I assume, to avoid an implosion of thought processes. However, one’s credibility amongst friends goes into decline, but that is the cost of being an experiencer.

Darlene Van de GriftThis is Darlene’s response in her words.

The most significant shift I experienced in my connection with ETs was how I was taught to fear and see them as so different from humans.

ETs are shown on TV and movies as being monsters, evil, malevolent, and out to destroy Earth and its inhabitants.

In reality developing a relationship with many various species of ETs has opened my eyes to the similarities that all beings have.

Some ETs may exhibit less emotional intelligence, but there are humans that also exhibit that. Some ETs are willing to learn and experience what emotions can do for them, and the value of feeling.   For the most part, I have found various species to be intelligent, articulate, and wanting more knowledge of how to work with humanity. They have emotions, families, connections within their species and others.  They are open and genuine in who they are and willing to share their own history and past interactions with humans.

I have developed a deep resonance with several ETs and have valuable relationships with them for over the 30 years.  We are all very much the same; it is up to humans to accept and allow the differences to subside so the work of co-creating and establishing common ground can be promoted.

After all, isn’t that what the issue has always been for humanity.  How do we really accept another when they are perceived as very different than ourselves?

A Shared Exoconscious Reality

As the Community of the Exoconscious, we are committed to co-creating an ET-Exoconscious Human Reality. It is based on subjective human experience with ETs as well as science, reason, spirituality, and psychic intelligence.

While corporate billionaires and their intel-military sugar daddies offer jump rooms to Mars and off-planet dystopian survival ships, the Community of the Exoconscious is grounded in exploring the deeper regions of what it means to be human, living on Planet Earth.

As co-creators, we are learning from our ET contact and ETs are learning from us. So, the future isn’t wrapped in a Hollywood Star Wars conclusion. Instead, life is a daily committed co-creation based on integrity and ethical, respectful relationship.

In many ways, the Community of the Exoconscious is a voyage into the unknown, charted by intuitive knowing. We are aware that reality is simply a weave of experiential timelines that are multidimensional. Occasionally, we glimpse the tapestry. But even then, we are usually at the edges.

As a Post-Disclosure community, we share the necessity of grounding of ufology in information from ET Experiencers who have matured and developed their ability to access the field of consciousness shared with ET, by accessing inner self-wisdom and disciplining our minds, emotions and behaviors.

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.

Truth or Lies? What’s in your belief system?

A GROWING AWARENESS

Truth, lies and belief systems are at work.

I think by now we can agree on some basic construction details, the ufo question notwithstanding. Do we seek truth or accepts lies? How do we know the difference? Are we limited by our belief systems? Ala… truth lies, belief systems.

If we want to understand the matrix we have to start small. By small I mean from an atomic truth lies & belief systemslevel. We’ve got some building blocks that comprise each atom, with the exception of one and I’ll get into that later.

So we’ve got protons, neutrons and electrons, right? Those are the basic particles, even if they’re just waving as they go by our insensitive eyes. Let us not forget, though, that 99% of each atom is space. We don’t know what is in it, but it’s widely considered that in that space is some kind of consciousness, or a least energy we cannot measure.

It’s also widely accepted that we have a certain almost imperceivable and yet dramatic effect on our experience through our thoughts and feelings. Experiencers report intense shifts in their awareness during events, like their belief systems are suspended for a short time as some inexplicable sensation permeates their being. They cannot describe it completely, yet the most common attempt includes a sense of intense love, even fearlessness.

ON THE OTHER SIDE

I’ve listened to so many conspiracy stories and theories over the years (30 or so). On some level, the probability of at least some of them seems conceivable. There certainly is enough attention on them and far more blogs, groups and websites that promote such things. We’re under threat of something at every turn.

On the level of intention and materialization, the attention given to these things (aberrant as they may be) might well contribute to the manifestation and proliferation of them. I’m sure that is what we all want right? NOT! We need to become more aware and manage our thoughts.

truth, lies & belief systemsIn the last decade or so the town cryers have subsided to a large degree. Instead they are turning to the claims of those who are deemed whistleblowers for most all their information. Those with the most outlandish stories have the loudest voice and apparent credibility based on the amount of attention they get. Of course, they certainly engage the curious and gullible in their stories.

There seems to be a faction of some galactic network that likes to engage local governments and military intelligence to further some agenda no one is really clear on yet. You can take your pick of several scenarios that apparently control people through fear and nanotechnology. Are those off-planet or on-planet scenarios? Meanwhile, appearances of craft are reported from around the world and no direct contact seems to be occurring. If it did, we’d know about it, right?

TRUTH OR LIES – LITMUS TEST

How do we tell the truth? I suppose how you read that question is where it might start. There are at least two ways to read it. One way is truth telling has a certain vulnerability that comes along with it, an inner looking place that becomes transparent in conversation. The other also has a different kind of vulnerability in seeing things as they are, not how we want them to be.

retrocausality - truth, lies & belief systems

Back to the future… or is it retrocausality? Some investigators of quantum physics (theorists) look at the possibility of time travel, producing our future ahead of time and then acquiescing to it. For an advanced consciousness that uses much more of its cranial capacity and understanding of universal laws… perhaps involving synchronicity. Currently, to consider such things only serves to distract us from understanding the present moment, imho.

There are resonant fields in the tests of truth, questions that reveal answers that create a sense of vibrational harmony within the human consciousness that is exploring any phenomena to seek understanding of it. These fields create sensations, sublime and subtle, that one can experience and are evident in the vast majority of ‘contact’ events involving an intelligence beyond human.

POPULAR REASONS WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE 

(Brent Cunningham – 

Before we take a look at what I think are the three essential tests for evaluating any truth-claims, let’s briefly look at some popular, but less than stellar reasons often used by people to test whether or not something is true—the claim and then a response:

1. Instinct — “It seems true to me.”
To this statement we must simply ask . . .
. . . Why?  What is guiding one’s instinctual ability to judge between competing truth-claims?
2. Feelings — “I like the feeling I get.” or “It feels right.”
. . . Can feelings be mistaken?
3. Wish fulfillment — “The God that I (want to) believe in would never send someone to hell.”
. . . Maybe not, but the God one wants to believe in may not be the God who actually exists.  We can never determine objective truth simply by what we want to be true.
4. Custom — “This is the way I / my family / my culture has always been.”
. . . Can they be mistaken?  What if one came from a Nazi background?
5. Popularity contest — “Well, ‘everyone’ believes it.”
. . . Again, can ‘everyone’ be wrong?  Counting noses is never a good means of determining truth.
6. Pragmatism — “It works for me, therefore it must be true.”
. . . However, almost anything can ‘work’ for a time.  Truth works overall.  For instance, a belief may ‘work’ at ridding oneself of guilt by denying it rather than absolving it.
7. Significance — “It gives my life meaning.”
. . . Is the meaning simply the result of wish-fulfillment or is it connected with reality?

Obviously, all of the above reasons for believing something to be true seem deficient and not the best tests to determine whether or not a truth-claim is really true (although, #s 6 & 7 do seem to be better candidates that #s 1-5).  Nevertheless, I think there are three criterion for testing truth-claims which, when used together, offer us the best chances of determining true beliefs.  Here they are.

1.  Internal Coherence — This is a test for rational consistency.  This asks if a belief makes sense?  We need to determine whether beliefs are rationally consistent within themselves and in relation to others beliefs of one’s larger worldview.  Some beliefs are known to be self-referentially inconsistent, or self-defeating.  An example might be the belief that all “knowledge” is scientific knowledge.  This is obviously self-defeating because the belief itself is not a scientific statement.  Therefore, the belief dies by its own standard for knowledge.

Another way a belief can fail this test is when two beliefs are in contradiction with each other, meaning that at least one of the beliefs must be false.  So, we must ask if the beliefs hold together?  For example, if a person is a Naturalist (believing that human life is accidental, random, and without ultimate purpose), he cannot then introduce the belief that we have an objective moral obligation to treat another person justly or with kindness.

Now, while the internal coherence test is essential for determining if something is true, it is not sufficient.  That is, consistency alone does not determine truth.  Consider this example: If Hillary Clinton is President, Bill Clinton is the First Man.  Hillary Clinton is President.  Therefore Bill Clinton is the First Man.  This argument is completely coherent and consistent.  However, it’s not true.  So, we need to add other criterion to the internal coherence test.

2.  External Correspondence — This test asks if a belief fits the facts of reality.   Does it correspond to the real world?  Proposed truth-claims must have explanatory power, or the ability to give account for our experience of the world (whether it be history, science, psychology, human nature, etc.).  For instance, a worldview can be tested by its ability to explain cosmological questions like the origin of the universe; anthropological questions like the existence of minds and free will; moral questions like the existence of evil and our experience with guilt.

Further, the explanatory power of truth-claims should (a) be comprehensive in scope—able to explain more or better than alternative theories; (b) have predictive power—suggesting new evidence and problems; (c) have precision—accounting for more details; (d) be illuminating—integrating otherwise unrelated data; (e) avoid ad hoc hypotheses—functioning only to explain away counter-evidence; (f) be simple—not needlessly multiplying the basic concepts, assumptions, and principles of an explanation.

3.  Functional Adequacy — This tests the livability of a truth-claim as a belief.  Is it a viable belief “on the street”?  Does it work in real life?  Some views sound good on paper, but are proven false in the laboratory of life.  Consider an eastern guru who asserts that the physical world is an illusion, yet he still looks both ways before crossing the street.  A person cannot live out such an illusory belief of the world for very long (or he’ll be hit by a bus before long!).  Even more than that, a belief system must integrate one’s life.  It must incorporate and meet the deepest human needs.

SUMMARY
In evaluating the truth or falsity of  propositions/truth-claims/beliefs, we must be sure to always look for three things: internal coherence (the logical), external correspondence (the factual), and functional adequacy (the livable).  For a belief to be true it must be meaningful, it must line up with the real world, and it must not only help us survive in daily life, but allow us to flourish.  Consequently, these are also the three areas in which our thinking can and does go wrong: logic, facts, and values.

THE DISCREPANCY

I said I’d get back to it. Every atom, with the exception of hydrogen, has all three components. We know that. What most of us don’t know is that not only does hydrogen fuel our sun, it also is the bonding agent in our DNA. The cosmic connection is more than mere circumstance, yet we don’t understand it yet.

It’s like the protons being hurdled into each other to create a particle that has no mass itself, yet gives mass to others. (Higgs-boson) The more consistent reality is that the explosion would create a rip or hole in the dimensional fabric (M Theory) instead. The ‘repair’ of that hole or rip might then appear as something disappearing, much the same as which scientists believe the Higgs-boson acted. But I digress…

Back to our genetic makeup, specifically our double helix strands of DNA. It is true that we have two hydrogen bonds between A/T base pairs and three between G/C base pairs. Consider the same intelligence behind the creation of solar systems and biological inhabitants of them. There would have to be a connection that bridges the two, right? Is this a possible connection?

 

On the Spiritual Side – Who’s Running the Show

I’m so thrilled to see the writings of several folks who’ve stood up to explore the greater possibilities of contact and what it might mean for us all. It’s triggered some memories for me and I did a little digging. I’d like to share an article I wrote in 1988 back before the Internet. The article is from a local metaphysical newspaper called Krystal Lighten published in August of 1988.

My eldest daughter’s name happens to be Krystal, so the ‘coincidence’ was very special. She’s a grandmother now.  It was the first article I had published and I’ve included it here with typos corrected. Admittedly, it could be written better. The point is that it’s nearly 30 years ago and we’re just getting to this kind of consideration in Ufology now.

On the Spiritual Side

Who’s Running the Show?

Have you ever wondered just what is really going on in your life? Would you care to entertain some interesting thoughts about this subject? Are you willing to question your beliefs?

We, I’m not going to cause major heartburn, yet there are some very interesting ideas I would like to present to you for contemplation; ideas that have taken an entire lifetime to come to this point of consideration and explanation.

First of all, we, as a planet, have been visited by numerous exterrestrial investigators. Why are they not more communicative with our world? Could it be that we are still so barbarous that we are not worthy of being taken into their confidence?

It seems as though our philosophy has been that if we try to make contact and are not acknowledged, we automatically believe we should take aggressive action to capture or shoot down the object of our communication attempt. A prime example is the Iranian airliner incident.

However, could the purpose of their visits be to begin the process of preparations for our planet to enter into the scheme of universe activities?

Second, our brains are only functioning at minimum levels of efficiency. What is the rest of the capacity that is untapped used for and how do we access it? Could it be that we are all “tuned in” at a level that we are not consciously aware of yet?

It seems to be popular belief that those with great understanding, such as Einstein, have had more use of the recesses of the brain. What about those who have various psychic abilities? We presently have five known senses with the “psychic” senses grouped into possibly one more.

We have five or six senses with the use of 10% of our brains. Could we deduce that as many as 45 senses are available with the other 90% of our brain capacity?

Lastly, many discoveries have been made in genetic engineering in recent years. Just how much more do we not know about the purpose of our genetic makeup? Could we all have a genetic predisposition that presupposes our ego-driven realities?

Many feel the time is coming for the planet to evolve into the next phase of our existence. The “plan” has not yet fully been revealed yet many groups are working on bringing new approaches to our everyday lives.

But just who is going to be responsible for engineering the cohesive efforts of all the groups to achieve such an age of enlightenment? Is it just going to “happen”?

Could the genetic makeup of certain individuals be such that they would be able to efficiently engineer the beginnings of the “New World Order” and be able to lead the rest of the planet toward our rightful place in universe status?

A New Effort

We’ve reached out to several authors who are respected among peers to become contributing authors here on Ufology Press. We look forward to their participation and are sure you’ll find their articles insightful and investigative. Thanks for your attention.

So many years later, I’ve written a number of books as well. Two of them that are getting great responses are Cosmic Conundrum – Who Am I? and Stubbing My TOE on Purpose.
