Contact in the Desert 2015

Contact-Desert-2015Contact in the Desert – 2105

Contact in the Desert is growing into a premier Ufology event drawing thousands from around the world. When I first arrived on site in 2013 and ran ​into Paul Andrews, I was surprised. Then I decided to rekindle an association that started back in 1998. Paul had invited me to come work for him in LA, just off Venice Beach.

I had spectacular results in running The Prophets Conference in Phoenix the previous October. Jim-ZencompThe only bummer was Cody and Robyn Johnson split town without paying me or Jim Dilettoso (right), who had recommended me to them. We did get something later, but then I had to pay the local waste management and generator folks. It was a sad situation and no one suspected the Axiom Group of such behaviors.

Paul and I didn’t work out at the time back then, but it was good to see he had teamed up with Victoria to produce Contact in the Desert. It was a spectacular showing although at the worst time of year for most folks, especially the elderly. It took two years to move it to May and even this last weekend was a bit too much for many. I ran into a elderly woman using a walker who was obviously determined to be there, but had a heck of time in the heat. Perhaps moving it to a different meteor shower period – Lyrids Meteor Shower – might do, April 22-23 with a full moon on April 22.

Speaking of Victoria, Paul’s event partner, she even got into the act of sharing her experiences and understanding on one of the panels in the amphitheater. It was really great to see one of the event coordinators reveal their story. I’m sure the DVD is available through the Contact in the Desert website. All the presentations will be available soon. Ask around and get your favorites. I think you can get the whole package for around $100.

Zen&JohnAnthonyWest-compI love getting into the thick of things, consistent with my given name, Bruce (means ‘dweller of the thicket), and volunteered as an A/V runner delivering the master copies of DVDs to the duplication station just outside the Sanctuary, the main speaker location. I ran into many folks I’ve known for years and met some new folks as well, like John Anthony West.

Of course there were some challenges with the event. When you have a first-some, first-served entrance into the main events it can be a challenge to get in and/or have a decent seat. There were viewing areas outdoors as well that were packed, too. With folks like Erich Von Daniken, Giorgio Tsoukalos, Jimmy Church and George Noory present there is always a crowd around them. Even at 80 (Erich had a birthday over the weekend) he still stands and delivers with a rapid-fire onset of details and facts from years of experience.

Speaking of experience, Grant Cameron and I had a wonderful, albeit short, chat on Sunday andZen&Grant-comp he requested a copy of Zendor the Contrarian, so I’m waiting with baited breath for the review.  Grant is one of the most observant and reflective of the cadre of Ufologists. He’s a bit like Richard Dolan, who thought I must be tagged upon our initial meeting in Phoenix some years ago. The difference is Grant spends much less time on conspiracy as he looks for the threads of commonality in experiencers and evidence of a larger perspective of Communion amongst humanity and our visitors, entering a new state of consciousness.

The Experiencer Gatherings, hosted by Alan Steinfeld and Barbara Jean Lindsey on Friday and Barbara on Sunday were especially dear to my heart. Many folks come to find corroboration and validation in their experiences, even solace in the fact that they are not alone and their concerns are heard. Each has their own interpretation and understanding depending on their level of consciousness and observation capacity. What seemed to be stressed the most through the sharings was to not be afraid and embrace the energy instead of trying to fight it.

Danny&Zen-compNow that doesn’t mean complete surrender to that which you might feel dangerous. It was mentioned that although one may not be prepared, the process of evolution – coming to terms with the cosmic consciousness condensed into form – is tantamount to rising above the fear, guilt and shame game that inhibits the sense of Oneness that more advanced experiencers acknowledge. The sense of open-heartedness in the meetings was obvious in how folks treated one another, too.

The attendance for the event has grown by leaps and bounds, with parking strewn across the 17-acre grounds. I’m not sure of the exact attendance, but it seemed around a couple thousand. We had around five thousand come through at the Prophets Conference in 1997. Event attendance in general is down from years past, but it’s beginning to climb again. The contrast of being in the open-air instead of hotel or resort environments is refreshing, kinda of a Burning Man rendition of Ufology.

Walking around the grounds at night revealed many small groupings of folks enjoy each others DannySheehan-FREE-compcompany, perhaps for the first time. An observer could easily recognize the exuberance and childlike spontaneity of experiencers all across the event grounds. There were some real serious types that often find it difficult to be happy, but the majority of folks by far enjoyed the weekend of Contact in the Desert.

In view but not a big topic of discussion was the presence of FREE via posters Rey Hernandez left with me from the International UFO Congress in February. I’m already looking forward to next year. Thanks to Paul and Victoria and all the staff and volunteers who made this event a memorable one for thousands. In only its third year it is promising to be one of the largest gatherings in the world now. If you considered going this year, but didn’t, I’d make sure to get your ticket early next year.

Volunteers-FREEWe also invite you to find and visit the Rose Cottage in the evenings for some conversation and comaraderie. You’ll meet some of the most interesting folks in a much more intimate environment. Our small group of diverse and unique travelers will welcome you with style and grace. Look forward to seeing you there!

This year’s gathering included Ron James and Steven Bassett. Ron and I had met several years ago when he owned Dream Theater in the Village of Oak Creek, just outside Sedona. An old friend, Swami Beyondananda, was doing a show there. Ron runs a magnificent network called iVolveTV that features material you just have to explore. He also produced the Citizens Hearing DVDs.

Btw, we’re looking for more authors for UfologyPRSS. If you’d like to contribute, please sent us an email with your contact information and reason for wanting to be a contributor, plus a writing sample or link to something of yours online.

2015 IUFOC – from a patron

Jim-Zen-Liz-Cliff

A moment in time…

Many years ago the gentleman on the far left in photo, Jim Dilettoso, along with Ret. Col. Wendelle Stevens (RIP) organized the first International UFO Congress in Tucson, AZ. I was quite fortunate to have been able to be there, arriving in a limousine owned by a mutual friend, Roy Haddix (RIP), along with the future mother of Jim’s awesome daughter.. now a teenager. Some really amazing things have happened over the years.

The event today brings people from all over the world. Mine is a personal experience of connecting with others and sharing what we’ve found in our personal direct experiences and relationships forged from internal and external perspectives, something that is not particularly shared on stage by the presenters. Most of that information is perhaps more linear and, quite honestly, polarized in one perspective or another. Below is a series of interviews I did at an event in Sedona in 1992, which includes Jim Dilettoso and others. It’s a veritable synopsis of what is and has been going on for decades.

This year was probably the most profound shift I’ve noticed in the willingness of people to share openly, mostly patrons rather than actual presenters. The shift has been in their ability to question and the willingness to see things from an inner perspective, free of polarization. This demonstrates the growth in awareness and consciousness among the collective of experiencers. The morning and evening gatherings of experiencers in a facilitated session by Yvonne Smith brought out the fact that many are still grappling with the intense juxtaposition of fear and freedom in experiencing non-linear and non-local events of their own.

Rey-Zen-Rich

Rey Hernandez, Rev Zen, Richard Dolan

There is a new organization called FREE (Foundation for Research of Extraterrestrial Encounters) that has taken the environment to a new level of investigation. Rey Hernandez and I shared a table during the event and got to know each other well, another unexpected joy for me particularly. FREE’s work, began by folks like John Mack (RIP) some years ago, is bring an opportunity for contactees to share their experiences and study the commonality. Academic studies of the phenomena of long been plagued by the reluctance of the scientific community to explore.

Today, the work of FREE is forging a new path in the acceptance and corroboration of a common theme in the awareness of experiencers, that of a congruent understanding of the helpfulness garnered toward the actualization of an openness toward our Star Families, revealing the potential of many who have found their lives to be integrated with a massive movement toward evolving consciousness. Dr. Edgar Mitchell and Dr. Rudy Schild are co-founders of FREE. Dr. Mitchell and I had conversations about this possibility when we met at the Prophets Conference in Phoenix in 1997.

Travis-ZenThe common perception among nearly all the folks I was able to meet and speak with for any length of time over the 5-day event was that we are learning how to move beyond our internal fears prompted by the induction of various philosophies and religions, Travis’ recent shift is one of the most notable. Of course there are those who still seek to polarize the public for personal and profitable reasons. The great thing is that the discussion of personal discernment is growing and the suspension of old, worn out belief systems is occurring throughout this environment. Some folks are still gullible and want to believe what they are hearing from these proponents of polarity. Indeed the conduit is closing, though, as the seekers of truth are reflecting their awareness more openly.

Perhaps there is a desire for harmony among people and planet, promoted by the majority of contactees, that is encouraging those who’ve felt like they were ‘abducted’ to look at their experience from a larger view, one of an expanded consciousness that is being offered by our extraterrestrial neighbors. The natural process of chaos to order is certainly being recognized.

Convincing UFO Response

advice - thoughtContinuing the Convincing of UFOs

… a convincing response to Dr. Joeseph Burkes

Ah, the photo from the first IUFOC poster back in 1991. It was a grand event in Tucson, a collaboration initiated by Retired Col. Wendelle Stevens, Bob Brown and Bob Dean (I think)… with a little help from Ted Loman and Jim Dilletoso. Riding down from Phoenix was the first time I’d ever been in a limousine, courtesy of Roy Haddix who was a long-time friend of Jim’s. These guys were investigators and thinkers, hoping to share their passion and purpose – disclosure and exposure of VIPs (Veritable Intelligence Patterns) and UFOs to the public.

I agree with you about the blinds coming down and the glossy eyes, Joseph, but for different reasons. The subject material, after the initial fascination wears off, causes one to have to think deeply about their belief systems, concepts of reality and personal relationships in the world. Thinking deeply is not a comfortable place and many, if not most, run from the invitation. I’ve even seen it in classrooms where I’ve challenged students to think deeper by applying the Socratic method.

People tend to want to be told how, what and who to do with no accountability and responsibility for their own thinking or acting. Their eyes are dull, their minds are chaotic and their capacity for intelligent conversation is challenged. The shades are drawn and nobody is home. The deer in the headlights is only moved by the deflection of pointed questions and the inability to say, “I don’t know,” without having to defend some position. The wise are doubters, willing to put their truth on the chopping block at any given moment.

It appears that even those deeply invested in the ufology field also have that limitation at certain points where their previous concepts and/or professions of understanding are threatened. They can quite confidently go up to the edge of the cliff, only to run back to the comfort of the past prejudicial and psychological denials when threaten with new information. These actions are most often toward experiencers who present possibilities that cause them to consider what one might call quantum concepts within the mental frameworks of established ufological authority.

Now the past attempts at communicating concepts through ‘contactee’ interviews, statements and writings have often fallen short of the articulation and tone of believability. Scott Mendelker’s work is an example. The interviewers of contactees presented nearly a ‘lost in space’ perception due to the style and words used in their individual articulations. Striving to be considerate of the audience and presenting information so that it is palatable as well as understandable is something authors don’t always consider.

Perhaps because of that early miscommunication, so many contactees are frustrated with the lack of attention paid to the ‘real’ things that are going on above and beyond the standard ufology-focused consideration and events. We’ve moved on from phenomena, sightings and even in some cases the need for disclosure. There has been very little attention paid to experiencers. It’s a subject that has still not garnered the deserved attention it needs, withholding what I think you’ll agree is pertinent information necessary for our beneficial and effective personal and planetary evolution.

Grant’s recognition of the cycles of patterns in ufological behavior appear to be leading to an even greater awareness of not only interactions, but a kind of bio-spiritual evolutionary process that may indeed include those who have been introduced to the population as ‘hybrids’ of sorts. They [hybrids] appear to have little knowledge of who they are until the natural cycles of maturity and the internal questions of connection and service begin to surface. If you were one of them, who would you turn to for help in understanding what was happening?

It’s no longer just ‘wonders in the sky’… it’s here and now, right in front of us. How we will negotiate with that potential or ‘truth’ is yet to be seen. FREE has begun that process with their surveys and promotion of a new focus on experiencers’ encounters and collective information. The new sciences, both material and psycho-spiritual, are soon to advance our planet as many of us believe possible, toward harmony among people and planet with the open interaction with our interstellar relatives. That’s what I’m hoping for anyway.

Thanks for your vigilance, Joe and especially to Rey Hernandez and Dr. Edgar Mitchell for continuing to move forward with consideration and mindfulness.

Contact in the Desert – New Dates

CONACT 2015Contact in the Desert New Dates

Now in its third year amidst the desert background in the Joshua Tree area, Contact in the Desert is moving the the end of May. Patrons are getting their wish as the previous August dates, even with the Perseid meteor showers, was challenging to heat-sensitive folks. It’s a beautiful venue, though.

Joshua Tree Retreat Center is the oldest and largest retreat center in the Western United States; a unique architectural landmark on a sacred site. Their mission is to support the education and nourishment of the infinite human potential. The atmosphere is certainly conducive, especially with the new dates for the 2015 Contact in the Desert event.

New Date: May 29 – 31

This year will bring many of the same speakers and vendors as the previous years. The event grew tremendously from 2012 to 2013 and this year is anticipated to be even larger. The schedule has not been released as of yet, but it is anticipated within by the end of January. If you are going to stay onsite, it would be a good idea to get your accommodates soon as they will fill up quickly.

There are some hotels in the area, but none within a reasonable walking distance from the event site at 59700 Twentynine Palms Highway, Joshua Tree, CA 92252. Weekend conference passes have included meals at the onsite cafeteria. The staff and volunteers are helpful and ut in a lot of hard work to make this event a success. Keep an eye on the Contact in the Desert InMemoriamwebsite for updated information to appear soon.

There are several gathering places onsite as well, for meet and greets and general conversation. The Rose Cottage will also host after-hours gatherings for patrons and special guests attending the conference as well. Our UfologyPRSS curator will be attending, too.

There have been contests for free tickets in the past, so hopefully this year will be no different. We’ll keep you updated as things progress. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter. Look forward to seeing you there.

 

Contact in the Desert recap

Alien.317The second Contact in the Desert event at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center was held this last weekend. Attendance grew to well over a thousand people in spite of the sweltering heat. When asked about possible date changes the event organizer, Paul Andrews, stated that the reason Perseid Meteor showers are most visible then. I’m not quite sure what that has to do with ‘contact’ but suffice it to say the dates will probably remain the same for next year.

Speakers presented on a varied of topics and you can research that on the Contact website.Since I know most of the presenters and am very familiar with their work, I spent most of my time among the participants to get a feel for the ‘common man’s’ observations and reflections on the subject at hand. From the queries I made, there is a vast array of perspectives and revelations (so to speak) being promoted, but not much is being done to query the crowd or seek out the experiences of real contactees. There is a lot of talk about consciousness, but no opportunities ti explore aside from the limited number of devices provided by a few of the vendors.

There was a surprise visit by one of the wayshowers of the consciousness movement, IMG_0703Barbara Marx-Hubbard, who happened to walk in and sit a few feet away, just before a small cadre of folks gathered around her for a short discussion. it was obvious that she was unfamiliar with advanced non-human intelligence, but she spoke of the need for a collective gathering around the possibility of open communication. Later in another short chat she mentioned spoke of a woman who had a large following in Canada and claimed to be a mouthpiece for the universal feminine principle many, many years ago and she thought it was a cult. The individual was part of a mass abduction in 1973.

The point regarding the latter is that expanded or cosmic consciousness can present itself through a variety of forms and sources, from crop circles to ‘channels’ that perform specific tasks for communicating information humans may not quite understand yet. I found it interesting the Ms. Hubbard could not see the significance of her own cult, but it was not my job to propose that view. Regardless, the worlds are bridging and the fact that she was at this event shows that walls are coming down and people are beginning to recognize the significance of non-human interactions. Many of the attendees I spoke with reflected the same and were frustrated that more focus is not on the communications that have been taking place.

alienanimation19In all fairness the groups that were assembled for the purpose of sharing experiences were littered with stories that would have taken a master coagulator to find the common thread in them. Most of them were related from a very human-centered and fear-based perspective. The obvious reflection was we fear what we do not understand and the interpretation of experiences is through a very linear lens. More experienced contactees argue the point that no fear is necessary and our view through that lens is extremely skewed and simply incorrect. The simple notion that everyone I spoke to agreed upon was that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form becoming aware of the fact.

The expansion of that simple notion spans myriad places, spaces and realms of consciousness across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The scientific discoveries that back up the notion of multiple dimensions and attending bodies (part of our multidimensional self) are beginning to bleed over from astrophysics and quantum physics. Questions and theories viewed through linear lenses seem to skew the view intended by the above-human intelligence. There seems to be a general consensus, though, that non-linear and non-local experience is necessary in order to have a better view of the big picture, incapable of being seen let alone understood by those who have not entered the non-linear and/or non-local worlds of consciousness. We need ways to create opportunities, safely, for folks to have experiences. We also need to have better conversations about them

In an effort to continue the growth of UfologyPRSS Blog I reached out to several noted authorities and old friends and invited them to write for us. Many agreed to provide material and to review existing material, written and video, that is on the Web at time. We’ve assembled a huge variety of feeds from around the world and many seem to have conflicting stories or present skewed views through very human lenses. We hope these new additions will help to develop better discernment tools for the material. Not everyone has a pure agenda for getting at the truth and whenever profits are involved you can be sure there will be controversy and withholding of truth. Our job is to share what we find.

In the future we look for open conversations that focus on the development of situational protocols that include tools to discern how the experiencer is interpreting their experience in order to get a more objective and clear perspective or the purpose. Apparently information from trusted sources indicates that human ‘spiritual’ awareness still isn’t congruent with cosmic consciousness (soul) in that we think we have a choice in our experiential timeline. Abductees complain about being taken against their will but give no credence to the possibility that there is another timeline they have no knowledge of, one they agree to participate in before incarnating here on Earth.

2014 IUFOC Recap

iufocThe 33rd International UFO Congress was February 12 – 16. It’s the largest conference of its kind in the world. The International UFO Congress is an organization in Arizona dedicated to the dissemination of information related to many areas in Ufology. It was established in 1991 and hosts an annual conference. While previously held in Laughlin, Nevada, the conference moved to the Phoenix, Arizona area in 2011.

The IUFOC features presentations given by authors, researchers, experts, enthusiasts, and those who have witnessed paranormal or anomalous phenomena from all over the world. It also provides a forum to discuss the experiences and findings. This week long event usually has over thirty speakers, a film festival, vendors, and experiencer sessions. Topics generally covered are alien abduction, UFO sightings, UFO crashes, crop circles, paranormal experiences, government conspiracy and much more.

This is probably the premier UFO-focused event in the world. John Rao and crew really do it up right. We’ve reported on the Open Minds team earlier. The quality of the venue, the quality of the mini-events within the IUFOC, like the EBE Awards, the Mixer and Dinner and the Sky Watch are all top notch. If you ever get the opportunity to attend, it will be one of the best experiences you’ll have of meeting folks that come from all over the world who are interested in or have experiences with UFOs.

We did manage to have conversations with many of the speakers and vendors during the event. We even got a few on video endorsing UfologyPRSS, including Ben Hansen, Dr. Lynne Kitei and Kim Carlsberg. We are truly appreciative of their support. Click on the video below for all the endorsements. We know it will help us continue to grow. We also want to express our appreciation for the folks at Open Minds and their exquisite production of the International UFO Congress.

The nature of the UFO phenomena covers a plethora of possibilities. There is as much consideration for conspiracy as there is for objectivism, regardless of Ayn’s introduction. Does our government really have involvement with other worlds? Some say yes and some say no, but we really do not know for sure. What would it matter, anyway?  Is there something that our government could offer the public as some kind of gesture in disclosure? Perhaps the revelation of the off-planet visitors is simply that we need to learn to get along. That alone is more challenging now than any engagements with extraterrestrials.

There were some new folks speaking at the IUFOC this year including Kawaunee Lapseritis, speaking about psychic Sasquatches; Mike Clelland, speaking on Owls and synchronicity regarding contact experiences; and David Marlen, who spoke on the triangular-shaped craft that frequents our skies. Some of the old favorites were there as well, including Steven Bassett, Patty Greer, Rob Simone and Dr. John Alexander. The former hopes for government disclosure, the latter doesn’t think the government knows much at all.

One of the highlights of the festivities was Ben Hansen’s hosting of the Sky Watch on Friday evening. Ben has been a popular figure since the Fact or Faked television show and is now representing Night Vision Ops, an inexpensive line of night vision equipment. It was reported by some that later that night there was a mysterious UFO that hovered over the location for some time. You might search the web for them.

DonWare

If you’ve been to any of the IUFOC events over the years, you will have noticed Don Ware, who consistently brings interesting bits of information to share. Don has been a regular for as long as we can remember. He combines his understanding of Ufology with tidbits from the Urantia Book. Speaking of, this was the first year the Urantia Foundation was part of the festivities and their books were flying out the door. Maybe there is a new source of information that Ufologists haven’t explored yet.

Although the gathering draws attention from all over the world, there hasn’t been much ‘new’ news in decades regarding the phenomena. There does seem to be a bit more of an inquiry into the possibility of extraterrestrials living among us, though. There was a lively discussion between several fellows one evening, patrons and another ‘regular,’ that included a few retirees – detective, human resource manager and an engineer. We overheard them discussing the possibilities of ETs living among us and what that might be like, especially if the ET didn’t know they were and grew up as an orphaned human with a penchant for discovering his or her lineage. We’ll see what develops.

We make it safe and solid for UFO Community Building. The expertise we bring to the table, or web in this case, allows us to help grow our partner’s viewership exponentially over time. We constantly update our content and bring both novice and expert to the table with equal weight, and the ability to feature individuals, companies and organizations through our blog,

Would you like to be a partner with us? Read on…

The digital age brings many opportunities we have yet to realize. One of the most precious is the community building, specifically the Ufology Community. Every artisan, author, blogger, creative, researcher, show host and videographer is just as important as any other, but separately there is only so much attention they will garner. This applies even more in regards to product or service websites that are competing with others for attention. Maintaining compelling material, products or services only goes so far.

We can help increase views and traffic in spite of all the competition. How? First of all, we really aren’t competition. We are a collective of support for Ufology in general. Through collaboration and participation we strengthen our position in the marketplace – and YOURS. Beyond the individual or website, we build a COMMUNITY OF SUPPORT. We’ve literally raised the bar for the industry. Just after launching there was a flurry of upgrades across the gamut of websites associated with Ufology. It was a long time coming.

UfologyPRSS brings hundreds of resources into one location  which is more enticing to the investigative ufologist. Individual websites garner substantially larger numbers of potential viewers as a result. The small pond expands into a lake and possibly an ocean of opportunity, clicks and ultimately sales and/or views.

How do we do that with UfologyPRSS?

Ufology News GoogleFirst of all, by joining with us as a Partner we’ll provide you with targeted traffic through promotions on Facebook and Google Adwords. We use 50% of our advertising revenue to promote our Partners through targeted advertising that drives traffic to UfologyPRSS. EVERYONE BENEFITS!

We already have astounding statistics after just a year in the market, with site visit averages over 5X the market averages in nearly every area. We all know that teams do better than individuals. Partners accelerate growth and ultimately sales.

Just as an example of what we can offer… We have experts that know how to develop blogs including graphics use, headline and keyword development for getting better traffic even outside the partnership we provide. The more we can help you succeed that better our community thrives. Ufology is growing in interest and UfologyPRSS is already at the top of Google Searches for many keywords.

ET Human Hybrids or Humans in Drag

reptilians-hybridET Human Hybrids or Humans in Drag

What about ET Human Hybrids? Are they humans in drag? I was fortunate to have a few moments with Grant Cameron before and after a recent presentation at the Phoenix MUFON group. Jim Mann and Stacey Wright have grown this group considerably and always provide great presenters, attracting folks from across the state in response.

I had been anticipating a brief conversation and the opportunity to share my second volume of Zendor the Barbarian in hopes of stimulating further conversation. Both were realized and then some. I hadn’t been to a MUFON meeting in over a year evidently and had been missed. I was able to enter and spend a bit of time with Cameron while others waited. I really appreciated the freedom Stacey offered. I was able to have some real quality time and in-depth conversation quickly.

Grant’s blog outlines his presentation that involved the notion that UFO experiences and experiencers have been happening in phases, with one leading toward the next in a gradual introduction or potential induction into a larger society. Of course there are some concerns for any dominant culture’s attempt to influence a society, let alone an entire planet. However, their superiority could have taken the form of planetary conquering long ago if that is what they were truly after in my humble opinion. Still, we have an enigma on our hands. What do they really want? What are these so-called ‘flaps’ of activity leading toward?

The focus of the conversation I was taking perhaps would take Cameron’s work to a new level. I was asking questions about the next level of Ufology inquiry – where are the hybrids? If these abductions/contacts involved harvesting eggs and semen, then where are the kids? If there has been interactions with the human population for thousands of years, how can we be sure there are not thousands if not millions of hybrids here already, either aware or unaware of who and what they are to date?

Our after dinner conversation brought up Dr. Jacobs work and the reports of a group of hybrids (not integrated into society already) being kept somewhere in the US. They weren’t captives, but being introduced to planetary protocols and systems gradually. For instance, there was no concept of furniture or its arrangement in an apartment-type setting. Be that as it may, my interest was more practical (I thought) in the notion of humans with lineages who were already perceptually human, meaning they were probably adopted and raised by families unaware of their advanced nature, yet quite aware of their advanced athletic and academic performance levels.

Cameron’s presentation included the obvious influence of higher-than-human intelligence on the production of music and with specific musicians who had professed their belief in extraterrestrials and UFOs for the entire careers, not always finding public favor I might add. Nonetheless, their music was affected and so were their audiences – millions and possibly billions affected by the airplay over years and years of popularity. For the moment, let’s get back to the question of hybrids and what Dr. Jacobs has to say…

I’m familiar with Dr. Jacobs as well, but I haven’t had the opportunity for a face-to-face yet. Cameron refers to him as well and John Mack. It is my opinion that, although his work (like John Mack’s) is revolutionary, it still leaves certain questions unasked and unexplored. He remains unclear about the ‘process’ as he refers to it. It is my opinion that there is a more subtle and profoundly integrated process of universal order in play. I’ve had reports in working with folks using the Multi-Plane Awareness technique that include seeing their ‘natural’ bodies on other dimensions as various forms we currently call extraterrestrial. I’ve also found that in particular ‘soul gazing’ events (long and lingering looks into the eyes where participants ‘gaze’ into each other) various facial morphs occur, some of them into other races.

So this gives rise to the question of their specie of origin even though they are human in this physical dimension. I’m not sure that there is genetic manipulation occurring. My own experience includes an ‘abduction’ (which I would have consented to so I don’t see it as an abduction per se) in which I awoke with electrodes lining my sphincter and later was told they were part of the process of raising my vibration so that it was easier to communicate. The science fits using the perineum as a direct connect to the spine and central nervous system. Could we indeed be the condensation of consciousness that manifests in human forms due to planetary protocols? Is our evolutionary path inclusive of remembering this process of condensation of consciousness (the gradual lowering of frequency into form)?

What are your thoughts?

Skeptiko – Science at the Tipping Point

alex-bw-head1Upon researching Alex Tsakaris and Skeptiko, the professionalism of his material and writing is too good to attempt to repackage here. So, in lieu of a rewrite, we’ll proceed with content from Skeptiko’s website and hope Alex doesn’t mind.

The name Skeptiko comes from the ancient Greek philosophy of Skeptikos, and refers to the teachings and the traits of a school of philosophers of whom it was said “asserted nothing but only opined”.

Our Agenda
Follow the data… wherever it leads.  Explore the possibility that the dominant scientific paradigm (i.e. Materialism) might be at a tipping point.  Engage the top thinkers in pointed discussions about the questions that matter most. Treat all guests with respect.

Host Bio: Alex Tsakiris

Alex, host of Skeptiko, is a successful entrepreneur turned science podcaster. In 2007 he founded Skeptiko which has become the #1 podcast covering the science of human consciousness.  Alex has appeared on syndicated radio talk shows both in the US and the UK and is well-know within the parapsychology and near-death experience research communities.

Examples of Engagement (from Skeptiko’s Community files)

In a recent podcast episode of Skeptiko, Dr David Jacobs is quoted as saying:

“This is not consciousness-raising; this is like consciousness denying. This is consciousness-lowering in a sense. So I don’t have any stake in this. It would be wonderful if it is. I think that John Mack was just dead wrong in his analysis of this. In fact, he tried and tried and tried to ram the abduction phenomenon into his preconceived ideas about consciousness and never could. Most people don’t realize that he gave up. He said, “That’s it. I don’t want to do it anymore,” because it could never conform to his ideas. Two years before he died he stopped doing abduction research altogether, closed up his peer group at Harvard, and told Budd Hopkins that maybe he’d been a little too gullible in this situation of abductions. He could never fit it into what he wanted it to be.”

Jacobs has made these statements about Dr. John Mack before, notably in a documentary film by David Cherniak, and he remains wrong.

Jacobs’ narrow view of the phenomenon is a holdover from early research which failed to accept that the alien encounter phenomenon involves different levels of reality and is deeply affecting in both positive and negative ways to those who experience it. This difference between Mack and Jacobs is of course widely known, and need not be debated here; Mack wrote expansively of what he learned from experiencers in Passport to the Cosmos, his second book on the subject.

But in particular to your inquiry, Jacobs’ repeated claim that Dr. Mack gave up his interest in alien encounters is simply false. Jacobs made that same claim earlier in the Cherniak documentary.

In fact, Dr. Mack had wrapped up the research branch of his organization (PEER – the Program for Extraordinary Experience Research) a few years before his death, and this was reported in a press release from PEER to MUFON (I wrote that press release myself), but he continued to speak and write on the subject as well as to consult with the experiencers who saw him long-term until his death in 2004.

Scotty Roberts – Intrepid Magazine

scotty robertsScotty Roberts

Scotty Roberts has his hands full. (from elsewhere) Scott Alan Roberts is the founder and publisher of Intrepid Magazine, a journal dedicated to politics, science, and unexplained phenomena. He is a radio show host, popular public speaker, and stand-up philosopher. He has been interviewed on scores of radio shows and was editor-in-chief of SyFy’s Ghost Hunters magazine, TAPS ParaMag. He attended Bible college and theological seminary, working toward his master’s in Divinity, but left for a 33-year career in advertising and publishing as an art and creative director, designer, illustrator, photographer, and writer. He lives in rural Wisconsin with his wife and children.

Intrepid Magazine… Boldly Going.

Have you ever questioned what conventional historical studies tell us about humanity’s ancient past? How often do you wonder if there is more to the world around us than what our everyday existence would reveal? Many would balk at these kinds of ideas, and not just because respect for the principles set forth within a consensus view of our reality requires less work; it is all but demanded by our mainstream academic institutions today. As the late zoologist Ivan Sanderson once wrote of his frustrations with establishment opinions, “is it that these people cannot face rewriting all the textbooks?”

Intrepid Magazine is a publication that focuses on subjects that are typically shunned by mainstream news sources, and while maintaining respect for the consensus body of scientific and historical knowledge, we also seek to explore more thoroughly the potentials that exist beyond accepted beliefs and popular opinions.

In large part, the summation of humankind’s knowledge may be an accurate representation of what we claim to know about our origins. And yet, it also seems, at times, that is has become less couth for the modern thinker to exhibit skepticism when weighing the possible alternatives in relation to human history, philosophical thought, and scientific understanding of the natural world. Such things as peer review and use of the scientific method are often invoked (and rightly so) in relation to the serious study of phenomenon taking place around us. And yet, at times it seems that these virtuous applications are conditional in their legitimacy; science will accept your research only as long as one limits the scope of their interest to conventional models and ideas.

Intrepid Magazine advocates an open minded, but also a reasonable approach to understanding the strange and unusual, history’s mysteries, and other questions that remain unanswered about our world.

We live in a culture that is willing to be bought and sold, and therefore if you want the big dollars that only larger corporate backers can provide, you must also be willing to compromise your principles, and peddle ideas and products that best suit their interests. Sadly, the unconventional ideas that Intrepid Magazine chooses to focus on, such as ancient mysteries, anomalous phenomenon, political conspiracies, and other “edgy” subject matter seldom interests the pursuits and agendas of such financial backers. That, in large part, is why people like us remain frustrated; getting an unconventional message to the masses—even if it’s a reasonable one—is far easier said than done… and it’s nearly impossible without at least marginal funding.

Intrepid Magazine proudly exists within a framework of individualist ideas and expression that has existed throughout the last century, and looks boldly toward the bright dawn of tomorrow. Reminded of the words of the late William F. Buckley Jr,  “It stands athwart history, yelling Stop, at a time when no one is inclined to do so, or to have much patience with those who so urge it.”

We’re here, and here we will remain. We’re Intrepid Magazine, and we’re boldly going.
