Are we dealing with criminal aliens?
Dr. Joseph Burkes is a retired MD, just like Dr. Greer. He’s even had early encounters and training by the infamous Greer, who’s received mixed reviews by the Ufology crowd. Moving beyond the Greer-style CE-5 gatherings and what seems to be a cult-like following, the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research in Extraterrestrial Encounters offered a new home for his passion of contact activism.
Facebook seems to offer folks a way to express their feelings, opinions and thoughts over a multitude of similarly-themed groups. At last count, the curator is connected to over 100 such groups themed with Ufology in some way. Many are choosing to post their eschatological (death, judgment, and the final destiny of the soul and of humankind) and ideological (system of ideas and ideals, especially concerning economic or political theory and policy) considerations in such places.
One such article/post Dr. Burkes placed in numerous groups got our attention. The opening question makes some assumptions that are questionable within the experiential foundations of ‘contact’ with extraterrestrials or advanced conscious entities we have little awareness of understanding of factual engagement. Many assumptions are being made and are perhaps worthy of consideration, though we may be revealing more about ourselves than we realize.
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.
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.
