Emergence And The Quest For Extraterrestrial Understanding

Is the underlying phenomena that drive UFOlogy an emergent phenomenon? Is it created from singular parts with an illusion of a whole? Is it only real when looked at from a certain perspective? Is something in our common human experience now exerting new experiences and phenomena?

Is the source of all those fantastical UFO sightings off world vehicular constructions of a type unknown. Or is it more ephemeral, more ethereal, and all too human of a thing? Must consciousness be considered? What does that even mean?

We are in dark territory surrounded by black water on this one.

To describe an emergent phenomenon, we must assume that emergent phenomena exist objectively, which in the case of UFOlogy is a foregone conclusion. Mathematics and the logic that flows from it are key. When we say that a phenomenon is emergent, what we really mean (without knowing it) is that a phenomenon is emergent within some perceptual modality or experience. Without perception, a map or scope of some set of information is simply another set of information. Nothing ’emerges’, there is only data compression. No labeling scheme requires that we resort to extra-mathematical ’emergent’ properties just because such properties seem to accomplish labeling so efficiently in hindsight.

When we run a query on a database and return a row of data, we would not consider the sum of that data to be a macrostate which has emerged from microstates. To ’emerge’ we would need to invoke some kind of phenomenal sensory quality, such as a visual graph. Even then, it would only seem emergent if the graph appeared automatically like a chemical precipitate from the data. In reality what allows us to see an image based on data in a computer is not any software or math, it is not a computation at all, but rather a physical transduction from semiconductor to optical physics to neurochemistry to phenomenology. We can see, for instance, how a bunch of ball bearings would have the emergent phenomena similar to a lubricant, but no matter what scale monochrome pixels are viewed at, no color would emerge. The brain as a whole is on a different scale than neurons or ion channels, but no scale is any more logically likely to precipitate a feeling or flavor than any other.

For this reason, Emergence should not be considered an objective feature to be described by mathematics or logic, but rather it is an aesthetic feature which is grounded in awareness. Emergence is not coupled to some disembodied parameter called ‘scope’, instead, it is the direct presentation of the scoping qualities of consciousness which gives the impression of emergence. It may be more of a ‘divergence’ than an Emergence, as our senses may serve to filter out experiential phenomena subtractively as much as they construct sensations from physical microstates. Macrostates are no less real than microstates, and both are emergent ‘scopes’ within consciousness.

We Are Forever Disjointed. The map is not the territory.

Count Alfred Korzybski used this Structural Differential (image) to drive home his point that the map of a territory is not the territory. His book: Science and Sanity: An Introduction to Non-Aristotelian Systems and General Semantics drove the point home with a vengeance. At an early age, his book introduced me to the semantic confusion that results when abstractions are confused with their associated physical objects.

Mathematical models of phenomena never replicate all of the features of the physical manifestation of the phenomena. Models select a subset of the observables of the phenomena and approximate their quantitative relationships. Endless arguments could be avoided except for confusion about the reality of these abstractions.

Phenomena itself is directly unreachable because whatever the phenomenon is, we can only access it by what it does. This includes observations, sounds, and even mathematical models. But the conglomerate of these expressions, both physical and symbolic, results in something we can circle and point to, that we can name and refer to, and then call upon to remember and think about.

All evidence is an expression. All expression is potential evidence.

To be less abstract:

We see something because it does what it needs to be seen. It emits or reflects photons.

We hear something because it does what it needs to be heard. It shakes and generates sound waves.

We feel something because it does what it needs to be felt. It carries weight.

And similarly,

We model something because it behaves in ways that can be mathematically modeled. It carries logical consistency.
Phenomena are the expressions of evidence with mathematical expressions being no exception.

The best we can do is rank expressions by their abstractness and their distances from their source. Math is more abstract than direct observation. But there is always a distance. Hence, they are equated, if for the only reason that they never meet. From molecules to atoms to quarks to strings, every time we overcome this distance, we have discovered something else. What’s more, different realities exist at every scale.

Discovering new worlds in pursuit of the core of our own is a feat, but then what does that make our reality? What does that make the conglomerate of all phenomena? An expression. It’s all one giant expression, and there is no is, there is only does.

Instead of using the term explaining phenomena, let’s exchange that with the term modeling phenomena. Because mathematics in itself doesn’t explain anything. It is language.

Mathematics is the most fundamental variety of truth. It comes before scientific truth (discovered empirically), before social truth (the facts about how we behave to each other and what myths we choose to believe), and way ahead of political truth (as in “The great leader is always correct.”). And here’s a shocking was to think about this. The statement “1 + 2 = 3” is true whether or not there is a God, and also true whether or not there are humans to think about it.

This is important to note. Mathematics is a language. But there are some fundamental differences between it and other non-mathematical languages. The most important one is the near lack of any ambiguity. Language often has words, phrases, etc. that can have many meanings in many different languages and those meanings are contextual.

The question is: How much of a message do I need to understand the message’s contents with no ambiguity?

In normal human languages, this could be a very long message to extract an exact meaning (longer than the message itself) and by increasing the complexity through increasing the length of the message (over-describe something) it can build in even more ambiguity (it is often not even possible to check to see if you got a meaning right). This concept can be illustrated with the current wave of dank-deconstructionist-ironic memes going around.

Mathematics is also a very compact language.

Because of the lack of ambiguity and compactness, mathematics is amazing to model all kinds of phenomena.

Even better, when dealing with the physical world, a model can be made where the error of collecting the data to create the model is observed and passed along to the model. This is very important in any science. A scientific fact is one where the observation (data) is assumed to have an error instead of just assuming something is right or wrong (which is what humans naturally do; seeing is believing). In other words: The burden of truth lies on the data collected and can be statistically measured. However, if someone tells someone else a statement, the burden of truth often lies with a person choosing to believe indirect observations “at face value”.

I humbly think that if the world had a better grasp on this, we could avoid many conflicts. Beliefs are fluid, they aren’t absolute in truthfulness. They can fall on a degree of truth, but humans often don’t see it that way. Belief is often not open to rational criticism nor is it updated to incorporate new observations. But scientific facts and mathematical models are known to improve as new observations are made, and that is the whole point. Finding a better model.

We will eventually find a reasonably accurate yet eternally incomplete model of what we call “UFO’s”. We will someday have the clarity of unambiguity in UFOlogy. It will take time. Frankly, I do not believe humans have even remotely come close to understanding what they seek. Let alone know how to ask the right questions to create a valid line of inquiry. We are just the dominant primate life on this planet. We dream of adequateness and worthiness of the delusions we tell ourselves. The Universe has no obligation to make sense to you.

Whether they come from inner space or outer space may not ultimately matter. The source of this phenomena will undoubtedly be more bizarre and unsettling than we can currently imagine. As the fleeting spark of humanity slowly evolves, the search and quest for truth may be our ultimate reward.

WAKING UP for SURVIVAL and a SANE EXOPOLITICAL OPPORTUNITY

We need to WAKE UP and to improve our alignment with existence and with Ultimate Reality: We so much need to collectively wake up into a greater caring of life and cooperation or else stupidly destroy our lives, that of animals, plants in this wonderful Earth-water world of life and opportunity! As you know, a major question is how to stimulate a healthy engagement in society in order to care about these issues. So many individuals do not care and most opinion and cultural leaders (orthodox and non-orthodox) doing their own thing.

I also think that a collective realization that we are actually engaging a more technologically advanced, “non-human” intelligence will force more of us out of our comforting denials. By realizing that (quantitatively) we are a speck of aware reality among trillions and trillions and trillions of such specks, our sense of self-sufficiency, hubris or pride may diminish. But, in order not to remain floored by this realization that we are not unique or special (or perhaps not even a product of isolated evolution in our planet), a realization that may be compounded by a nightmare failure of our political-economic systems, we will have to agree upon a meta-theoretical basis in which all of reality (what we call “living” and “non-living”) is interconnected and under rules of engagement which demand respect from civilizations which truly understand this.

In this integrative and interpretive basis, the shared truths in religions, all fields of knowledge, science, consciousness would be understood as necessary aspects. The singular and plural in terms of the objective and subjective as Ken Wilber proposes. Then, if this meta-philosophy serves to explain the physics involving macro scale effects of space-time manipulation and the use and meaning of consciousness, a shared world philosophy would become plausible.

Thus, I think that we first need to be shocked out of our complacency by a revelation that we are not alone, that we are not so special that the cosmos rolls around us. Then, we will need an explanation both providing practical effects (a more “magical” technology) and an unquestionable understanding that we and all of reality is connected.

Such realizations would contradict our animalistic, self-centered, egotistic adaptations that constantly separate us into self-assertive clans that conflict with each other. The, either our human nature already contains the flexibility to adapt (through education and community) to the more consciously connected socio-political system that would logically follow or we would find ways to activate (or perhaps modify) our genetic potential that would surpass our basic status, fear-based and short thinking self-assertive, animalistic tendencies.

Thus, the future human evolutionary process may be marked by the following necessary (also distinct but interconnected) stages: 1) Shock and Surprise 2) The existential Need for Re-evaluation 3) Comprehensive-Practical, Integrative Meta-Theory (or Meta-Theories), 3) Self-directed modification and/or enhancement of our human nature/our tendencies.

And the fact that cooperating with the good of others in the universal order of things is adaptive to our discovery of and adaptive to our increasing engagement with an inseparable, participatory reality by itself would not be sufficient to ground a solid ethical perspective.

Contingency, connectivity, mutation, evolution-devolution entails a lack of self-existing actuality and for this reason, its cause is in the absolute, beyond opposites, even beyond the idea of “non-being.” We still need to be aware that an objective, ethical appreciation of and respect for the orderly connectivity and lives of contingent beings also requires an absolute frame of reference: The Ground of Being, God, Source, the Divine Presence, Allah, Buddha-datu, within which all contingent consciousnesses and/or beings exist in various levels of awareness, engagement, alignment or negation of he-she-it (reference pronoun metaphors).

Without a sense of submission and alignment with the Source of Good/ The Good itself in which we inseparably live, but whose essence/nature (which infinitely transcends any contingent understanding) we will continue our self-asserting power games, hurting lives. Thus, even a quantum or a post-quantum physics of connectivity or a physics of the hologram which recognizes consciousness as limited to the physics is insufficient and possibly the next main peril into a complicated collective Freudian “denial” and Jungian “shadow” which we might carry into subsequent evolutionary stages. Perhaps some advanced extraterrestrial “races” able to use the internal patterns of the universe in a transdimensional manner to move around physical realities fell prey to this temptation, another temptation into hubris and self-sufficiency…the arrogance of separation and self-sufficiency through technologies or other means.

Part of the language that produces religious allergies in “free thinkers” is there but this is not a proposal to return to an authoritarian, religious version of what truth is. It is a call to transcend all religions and see what connects them; to transcend the limits of orthodox science and to include consciousness without limiting it to the contingent to connectivity, holograms, uncertainty, the zero-point, physics.

By grounding subjectivity affecting objects (as in quantum physics and psychic effects) and objects of experience affecting subjectivity… by grounding the existence of consciousness and matter (both as elements of parts and wholes, singularities and collectivities) under a fundamental duality originating in the Nondual can we find a wise path and recover an adequate sense of placement.

Multidimensional Millennial Missions – Big Picture and Little Details

Mission and Purpose

Across the web in those places where people tend to share their high strangeness and explore the meaning of events often beyond the scope of our understanding, there is a consistent thread. Nearly everyone believes they are here on Earth at this time to participate in some kind of massive transformation of the human race. Is there anything to back that up?

On the one hand, there are countless prophecies from ancient and current sources that seem to echo this notion that Earth, or rather its population, is going to go through an apocalypse, a change, a shift, a transformation. Some interpretation of crop circles with binary and mathematical coding offer a similar perspective. Recent surveys of contactees or ‘experiencers’ as they are being called now have also indicated there is an awareness amongst the majority of being here on Earth with purpose.

That being said, the definition of the missions are pretty nebulous at present, at least in the folks that are talking about them. Said missions often turn out to be self-declared important information that needs to be shared with the world. Well, that seems pretty old school ego including an aloof and self-important behavior. Gullible folks who don’t know any better get caught up easily. There are a number of so-called ‘galactic representatives’ who generate nothing more than binary presentations (federation vs. cabals) veiled in fluffy stuff. It seems deceptive at best.

If we consider the notion of strong telepaths being exploited by those same cabals, then the messages would probably keep folks anesthetized and passive players in the goings on. There are plenty of stories about telepathic Draconians held prisoner for such purposes. That just doesn’t make any sense at all, but humans trained to do so seems much more plausible. The more likely reality is that folks are just being manipulated. Some even pay money. That’s the bottom line – keeping the lights on for real.

Those who listen to such would be ineffective in their perceived mission, even though they believe they are doing the right thing or that they feel some kind of resonance with the material. Do they really question it, though? There are indeed the well-intended soothsayers, of many varieties, who constantly offer some ‘galactic’ message of one sort or another with a consistent theme. It’s usually the same information regurgitated with a slightly different spin with an occasional tidbit of transcendence. Again, is it sincerely questioned?

Multidimensional Implications

If we look at some of the explanations of universe administrative offices, the achievements to gain them include a distributed consciousness in many that is then re-integrated in one being. In the same way, it could well be possible that one consciousness incarnate may be linked to multiple others in a way that reflects many organizational structures, like a pyramid. Those that have definite yet nebulous inklings toward planetary transformation my just be conduits on call, so to speak, delivering data to their network on demand without even knowing them. It is conceivable that this is possible within the constructs of known quantum mechanics theory, indeed a ‘spooky action at a distance.’

Now postulates of that sort will obviously seem incredulous to most people of a rational mindset who are usually also devoid of any experiential understanding of high strangeness. The challenge is worthy. This area of consciousness is unexplored and therefore not understood for the most part. Attempted explanations of a ‘Planck Field’ or ‘Federation Updates’ bestowing insight and understanding doesn’t seem to be the real deal either, even thought the purveyors would like you to believe it… many do. Questions do have answers. Perhaps the right ones aren’t being asked yet.

What does seem to be the real deal are the specific actions of those who engage larger environments in service and regardless of the industry or population, they somehow manage to become involved with something bigger than they are and either overtly or subtly affect the process or project. These folks are less likely to stick their heads up in online groups, or have an online presence at all. They are too busy and see the groups as children trying to find their way.

Perhaps it’s like storytellers who weave their tales into the consciousness of humankind to have them emerge over time as real and significant scenarios that do impact our future in ways we would not previously have thought possible. Quantum theories do offer room for such things to occur whether through telepathic delivery (human or non-human) and/or the potential for seeing things from a different perspective. The shift opens a door, or many, to changing a previously impenetrable thoughtmosphere.

Practical Mysticism

The dirt (devil) is in the details. The more practical approach to doing things in the real world requires a steady hand on the wheel. If/when we question mission or purpose (knowing we have one) the opportunities to explore it become present. It will likely come in the form of something that challenges one to step up, at least a little, and address a fear or learn a new skill. These kinds of activities may go on for years or decades, depending on the needs of the mission. It is a steady as she goes plan.

This plan follows the standard process of creating things in the material world. If we don’t know how, then we ask questions and await answers, mentors and training to fulfill the request. It comes, although we might not always recognized it at first, or even until much later. The perseverance and tenacity to reach the level of being fit for duty, so to speak, may involve a lifetime of preparation. The big picture often requires a lifetime of dedication.

This can be tremendously frustrating to the uninitiated who believe things should just drop in their laps for them to complete their mission. Part and parcel to every mission on Earth is the essential requirement of learning how to get along, being available for the process of harmony among people and planet to become party of one’s being. Arriving on Earth with such a responsibility is not an easy path at all, until we release all resistance and become the flow.

What are your thoughts on the matter?

Hypnotic Regressions of Harmful ETs Reflect in FREE Reports

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. But if you were to delve deeper into hypnosis, which can rightly be termed advanced hypnosis, you would find that the benefits it has to offer might solely be the things keeping some people from going insane.

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.

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.
