We’ll shift focus from our contributors for a moment. In a personal post Dr. Joseph Burkes, ufologist from Contact Underground and associate of Kosta Makreas, mentions John Keel and Dr. Jacques Vallee as inspirators for his quest to understand the UFO phenomena. Who has inspired you in your quest?
The original post referenced the challenge of science to deal with UFOs. In main stream scientific realms, the mention of UFOs could be a death knell of your career. It inspired me to offer some additional considerations which also puts me on the fringe of the fringe. I changed my priorities years ago, choosing to view the phenomena through a larger lens.
Changed Priorities Ahead
Keel’s work didn’t put UFOs in a positive light for the most part. It wasn’t obvious whether he spoofed the serious or tried to equate the phenomena with some nefarious supernatural conduct. Vallee, on the other hand, advocated the early extraterrestrial hypothesis and later the interdimensional hypothesis. Both influenced a large number of folks in the Ufology community.
There appears to be a very beneficial engagement that keeps getting swept away, though. It has more to do with Vallee’s theories than those of Keel. The subject is rarely, if ever, addressed in the realms of Ufology. It is like the proverbial hot potato. The field is fringe enough with deception and denial of even the most logical intelligence and/or reports of interaction beyond the physical.
John Keel’s use of ‘ultraterrestrials,’ I sense, may be better termed ‘intraterrestrials’ because of the appearance on inner planes of consciousness more than the physical planes to date. Yes they do have many forms and may indeed adjust their forms to fit our ability to perceive. I have a different perspective because of my personal path, but I wonder nevertheless. Rather than rely on other material, I figure why not engage our own truth-seeking mechanisms that are built into our consciousness? In the case of experience, why not question it differently?
In his recent autobiographical book, Forbidden Science, Vallee summed up his views about the provenance of UFOs, a viewpoint that he’s developed through decades of research: “The UFO Phenomenon exists. It has been with us throughout history. It is physical in nature and it remains unexplained in terms of contemporary science. It represents a level of consciousness that we have not yet recognized, and which is able to manipulate dimensions beyond time and space as we understand them.”
It would seem not only possible but probable that after so long (hundreds if not thousands of years of ‘contact’) that there would be some mixed blood lineages on Earth as well? Heck, there might even be some pure blood lineages. Some already believe this to be true and that they are part a global dominance conspiracy. If they can manipulate space/time, are their humans that can as well?
Considering the number of races visiting, is it possible we could have many lineages whose ‘mission’ is to get along? Could it be that intimate? Would it make sense that intimacy has occurred beyond the stories of abduction and embryo snatching? Are paranormal events initiated by humans an indication of evolution or display of ‘extraterrestrial/intra-terrestrial/ultraterrestrial’ lineage?
Like the ascension to consciousness or self-realization, maybe the process of questioning identity and reality leads us to this truth as well. Those who’ve had close contact and/or conversations with ‘intelligence’ (often non-corporeal yet presenting an off-planet source) tend to lean toward a more beneficial interaction intended to assist humanity in getting their proverbial shit together. Their main concern is for us to learn how to get along and respect our planet.
If one steps back and views the long-term, would this not make sense? It might even explain the phenomena of those who have had ongoing contact, staying out of the limelight and only recently beginning to speak out. If the general level of intelligence is so belligerent toward possibility, how can we possibly more forward with compassionate exploration? It would seem only appropriate to at least consider our potential discoveries.
Certainly the early expierencers/explorers might not be able to articulate their events eloquently, but might have sounded like flower children in their referencing the out-of-this-world discoveries. Imagine experiencing something wonderful; out of the boundaries of any known phenomena yet beneficent in nature. How might you interpret and report such an event?
Not too many folks would give you the time of day, believing instead that you have ingested something or were just ‘out there’ by psychological default. In the cold hard fact world, the warm fuzzy subjective experience would go unnoticed and/or be trivialized for some time, imho. Science has no way of objectifying subjective reality.. or do they? Maybe that’s where Valle and Keel began.
It is that consciousness that I believe is present in humans, at least to some degree, and those who are having ongoing contact experiences are part of that world-bridging effort. Because it is within our evolving consciousness, it is something that has to be discovered, like asking the right questions. If one is given answers to questions unasked, the knowledge falls on deaf ears.
