“What Planet Are You From?”

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

TRIBAL WARFARE ON PLANET EARTH

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

SNR, Signal to Noise Ratio

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

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

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

THOSE ATTEMPTING PEACEFUL INTERACTIONS ARE ON THE FRINGE

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

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

“SPEAK TO ET”

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

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

It’s No Wonder We’re a Bit Confused by Intelligence

Intelligence is Over-rated

I’ve been involved with this field for several decades openly and a couple more as an early experiencer of high strangeness. It certainly doesn’t make me an authority, yet I do have some perspectives that few seem to garner as experiencers. I have an above average intelligence, last clocked online at around 151 using my opposite hand just to make it interesting and no rum was involved. My adoptive parents told me early tests were higher and they feared that telling me would turn me into an intellectual snob. Perhaps I have in the minds of some.

Lately there has been yet another flurry of details regarding Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs) and top secret government intelligence programs that have been studying them. Luis Elizondo recently spilled the beans on an obscure government program he was involved in that was tasked with studying the UFO phenomena, AATIP was its acronym. The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was supposedly led by him. He ‘quit’ the Pentagon because it he was frustrated by the cover-up.

Wow, what a news story that nearly every media outlet picked up on and made Luis an icon in Ufology almost instantly. Was he really involved or, like many, chose to sprinkle some truth in a large lie to get attention? Yes, AATIP existed, and it “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena,” Pentagon spokesperson Christopher Sherwood was quoted as saying by Keith Kloor, journalist for The Intercept. However, he added: “Mr. Elizondo had no responsibilities with regard to the AATIP program while he worked in OUSDI [the Office of Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence], up until the time he resigned effective 10/4/2017.”

Intelligence or Insanity?

Luis isn’t the first to muddy the waters in Ufology, though. There is a long history of folks who, with no evidence available other than their word, have forged careers out of elaborate story-telling with details that entice the ears and stimulate the minds of the listeners and readers. Jeffrey Mishlove invited me to discuss the topic in an August 2018 interview he titled ‘The Sociology of Ufology.’ We discussed the tragedy within the field and the travails of those who genuinely seek the truth of whatever is known about our visitors from space.

It seems most of the folks who do have a clue are quiet, reserved and unrecognized by those who find the UFO circuit to provide a means of accolades and notoriety. It’s a small pond in comparison to the larger picture, yet the majority of experiencers are faced with few other opportunities to gather and commune with others of like experiences. The phrase made popular by The X Files, ‘I want to believe,’ now included the necessary discernment skills to weed through the BS. How close are we to really knowing the truth?

In the larger sense, what is the truth about these visitors? We now have irrefutable evidence they exist, specifically military videos as well as officials who’ve had first hand experience, rather sightings, of craft that is obviously not of this world. This evidence has been around for decades in the Ufology circles, yet hadn’t reached the public ears and eyes through major media until this year. Still, there has been evidence that has gone relatively unnoticed from years past. It has been right in front of us, available to find, for decades.

Intelligence of the Visitors

But what of those inside the craft? Who are they and what are they doing? Why are they here and what are their intentions? How do we find out about their intelligence? Do we think the government or major media outlets are going to tells us? Heck, they don’t even know from what many gather. So what is missing? Is there an underground movement, like Dr. Joseph Burkes suggests, that is painstakingly sharing information amongst each other to corroborate and distill general discoveries and potential objectives of these visitors?

It seems that methods of communication vary, mostly telepathic and yet include non-linear and non-local metaphysical-types of temporal distortion or even time-dilation. Events that are perceived as being very physical, when viewed through quantum lenses, are evidence of a multi-dimensional reality much like Neppe and Close describe with their TDVP model of consciousness, time and space being tethered. We have one timeline, yet the experience covers multiple dimensions simultaneously.

Do we need advanced degrees in quantum mechanics to understand it all? Some my think so and certainly there is a lot of math involved in explaining things from a scientific perspective, just like Einstein tried to with his theory of relativity. Jung had many dinners with him over nearly a decade and was greatly influenced by Einstein in the development of his papers on psychiatry. Bertrand Russell was also influenced and noted that to think Einstein’s Theory of Relativity has no philosophical impact was folly. Hans Reichenbach felt that human ‘sensations’ were more, that they were intricately connected to something going on in the universe.

Intelligence within Consciousness

Back to the consciousness that is being expanded by the ‘sensations’ of engagement by non-human intelligence. It spans more than just our visitors engagement of terrestrials. These same sensations are akin to the experience of higher realms of consciousness, often accompanied by a sense of vibration that has been described as both excruciating and/or exhilarating, depending on the frame of mind of the experiencer. So there is a choice involved as to ‘how’ to experience this ‘contact’ as the case may be. If it’s startling with a sense of fear involved, it’s excruciating. On the other hand, if it’s startling with a sense of intrigue or fearlessness, it’s often exhilarating.

Is there a path of logic that fits the scenario of their intent or purpose for engaging humanity in any way? If we looked at things from the perspective of an advanced civilization, what might that be? We tend to see things only through human-centric and fearful eyes, a looming threat. If that were the case, we’d be living in a much different world. Ancient civilizations have learned much, but what? If we are fascinated with the inner-workings of matter and ‘spirit,’ could we posit that this is a general path of evolution and development of intelligence? Where would it take us?

The universe has inherent logic, math and science we have only just begun to understand even in process of entropy to negentropy, from chaos to order. Could it be possible that the communication being delivered through human contacts, interpreted in a variety of ways, is steering us toward recognizing the intricate connections we, in our expanded consciousness, have with everything around us? Consider we’re 99% space, even though we seem physical. What permeates the space we all share? How would we best engage it? Is there a path toward understanding it? What might that be?

DoD Admits to UFO Program – New York Times

DoD Admits UFO Program

And a wonderful Monday morning to you all. It looks like we had some interesting news hit the airwaves this last weekend (re: DoD Secret Program revealed) scooped by and on both New York Times and Politico on Saturday. Of course, Anonymous picked it up and put together a straightforward piece about it.

Apparently it was time for a real discussion to take place with notable sources. The New York Times released an article on Saturday, December 16, 2017,

Whether this is part of an effort at disclosure or a cover-story from investigative reporting, the fact is many have known of the covert involvement for decades. What remains to be known is the exact nature of the ‘visitors’ and whether they are truly a threat or not.

Here’s a short excerpt that effectively announces the secret program isn’t so secret anymore:

WASHINGTON — In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find.

Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.

For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times. It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze.

The Defense Department has never before acknowledged the existence of the program, which it says it shut down in 2012. But its backers say that, while the Pentagon ended funding for the effort at that time, the program remains in existence. For the past five years, they say, officials with the program have continued to investigate episodes brought to them by service members, while also carrying out their other Defense Department duties.

Full Article

And straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak…

Is the DoD UFO Program really necessary? The Honorable Paul Hellyer, a retired Canadian Defense Minister and one who would know about such things, disclosed some time ago that they [Military Industrial Complex] know the ‘visitors’ are no threat to the population of Earth at all. So why do we continue to build arsenals to combat them?

It is assumed that the economy based on military spending wanted to keep this information under wraps so that their black budget ‘space’ defense items would not be questioned. After all, whether we realize it or not, the majority of our economic system is funded in some way through military spending whether directly or indirectly. Peace is not profitable, yet.

There are many who are helping to reveal the truth about UFOs, their inhabitants and the interactions with humans that seem to be more about raising our consciousness and in turn our behavior toward each other and our planet than any perceived or real threat. The only threat is to the nature and purpose of the economic system-driven Military Industrial Complex. Once exposed, the possibility of adverse effects on the global economy is more of a threat than any alien agenda.

As a population, intelligent and understanding of the predicament, we are compelled to be collaborative in our change management and the shift toward a different ‘new world order’ than had been planned by the MIC leadership. It seems anti-climatic, though, since at least a portion of the population has been aware programs like this have been going on since the Roswell incident. We’ve benefited greatly from the technology that has been reverse engineered.

On the other hand, perhaps the technology that has been used for military applications might be re-purposed for life-friendly activities instead. Peace is not only profitable to us all, it is perhaps the most natural order we could possibly ascend toward. It does take a shift in our current consciousness for it to happen, though.

How this shift will happen and what might we expect are more important questions. One group that is headed by Steve Bassett, Paradigm Research Group, has been lobbying in Washington for disclosure for quite some time.

Alien Agendas and Anal Probes

Aliens and Anal Probes – Jason Colavito

www.jasoncolavito.com/aliens-and-anal-probes.html

On the other hand, author Zen Benefiel self-published a book called Alien Agendas and Anal Probes (2014) that promised to investigate “the science behind the anal probes” and what these probes can tell us about why the aliens are really here. But his book isn’t a history so much as New Age-influenced fringe speculation, so it is of limited use in peeling back the layers of the abduction experience.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jason was gracious enough to include my book. I think he missed the main point, though. The science behind the ‘probe’ is stated fairly simply and succinctly, probably too simply for peering eyes to grok. Moments after having the experience I was reflecting on why it happens.

That science involved an intimate understanding of anatomy and use of nerves that are direct pathways to the spine and central nervous system, specifically through the perineum. So this is not some new age stuff with general and nebulous statements about love and light. It’s exacting and perhaps even credible when you understand the technology.

The first thing that popped into my head was not some New Age influence speculation. I’m a math and science buff, intelligent and investigative beyond most. Math and science are so present in the constructs of the universe, beginning with the foundation of sound and light condensing, or lower the vibratory rate, into form. That may seem new-age, though quantum sciences and a the model of Neppe and Clark speak of consciousness tethered with space and time across multiple dimensions.

Advanced races that can travel across time and space are familiar with the natural laws and order of the universe, so they are well aware of the effects of adjusting frequencies. If you consider the known quantities of information about the nature of frequencies and the subtle adjustments that produce amazing changes in our bodies and environment, it just makes sense that the same adjustments can be made with technology applied to our bodies.

The simple science regarding the anal probe is that the sphincter is an end point, as well as the genitals, of the perineum nerve. The nerve is directly connected to the spinal nerve which, according to the ancient arts, is the path of Kundalini Serpent Fire when it is ignited. So, we can ignite this Fire (Divine as it is) with practice AND it can be accelerated by procedures. It is an undeniable experience when it happens, a definite perspective adjustment.

What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures, using technology to subtly affect a nerve like the perineum? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes. We are so oppressed in regard to considering or discussion anything of a sexual nature that folks haven’t been able to transcend their paradigms. In time, we will.

So, thanks Jason, I appreciate the opportunity to address the subject again.

Luba was reading one of my books just moments ago on this Sunday morning, coffee in hand, when she burst forth through tarmac toward the sun again. Okay, couldn’t help the Moody reference. Alien Agendas and Anal Probes is what she was reading, then announcing with every ounce of surety in her that she was shaken to the core and this was exactly what she had been looking for… in Tom Campbell, in Kundalini, all the books and videos, everything… that this was the core of our existence – why we are here and what we are doing.

Farbeit for me to resist the opportunity to share her excitement, and my amazement at her discovery and how much it meant to her as a keystone experience. She thought everyone needs to read this and see/feel for themselves how much sense it makes.

And so the excerpt:

We might see it as God dwelling in man again. I eventually understood it as cosmic consciousness condensing into form and becoming aware of it.

The result, according to the narrator, is a sense of oneness and willingness to operate free from intellectual pursuits driven by the desire to dominate the environment. Each individual soul has purpose, like a thread in the tapestry of life that is just as important as any other thread. The beauty of the tapestry is dependent on the threads, no matter the color, diameter or length.

When all the threads become aware of the tapestry, it becomes alive and whole – able to be viewed. Individuals are like fractals of the tapestry, able to contain the original yet finding form, fit and function within it as their own filaments combine to form the whole.

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.
