Is Contact Imminent?

As one author, perhaps better known as Zendor the Contrarian, I’ve been keeping up with the rest of the Ufology crowd for decades, observing the many splendor-ed things reported across the gamut of the topic. I’m most interested in the engagement of what Dr. Joseph Burkes calls TOTENCET, the communication of ‘them’ with ‘us’ in oh, so many ways. I posit that the direct experiences, the physical contact, is anomalous because the vibratory rates of the TOTENCET are so far beyond ours that it produces a fight or flight syndrome within the experiencer, not necessarily intended but nevertheless present. It is much more effective to conduct remote access (conscious, dream state, etc) because our minds are at least a little more receptive.

To be present and fully conscious, without mental perturbations, is nearly impossible for most human beings unless they’ve had continual contact for some time, imho, effectively desensitizing or at least getting used to the contrast in vibratory experience… the place of LOVE within us beyond any fear. There is a certain sense, almost one of ‘dropping in’ to a state of consciousness that has been referred to as ‘the silence within’ for millennia. Few attain access to this place because of the tendency for the mind to engage thoughts in rapid-fire and nearly uncontrollable fashion. Still, for those experiencers who’ve reached this place, my words only edify their understanding and, perhaps, their knowing of the beneficent beings who reside there. They are no threat to us… none. Most often they invite us to share in that space of ‘love’ (for lack of a better term) that is almost effervescent or iridescent in our sensory capacity.

In time I believe this will become common; making sense common is a goal we share. I’ve found that there are some rough psycho-spiritual technologies available to explore and, although I don’t have a production studio, I’ve managed to put a couple of them together as they just seem to mirror each other and would work well together…

Trusting relationships are absolutely important, but we often hold back in some way and diminish the capacity of full engagement. It’s like the whole eye of the needle thing in what Marcus is talking about, we have to release everything – especially our attachment to being alive. Sacred journeys and near-death experiences also present these opportunities.

The release of the physical presents new living awareness in the realization that there truly is no death. It is a new level of trust we attain. Consciousness, TOTENCET and formless intelligence all have an open door for us to enter – contact is imminent in that place. Our physical reality, according to science now, has more space than matter. The consciousness that permeates space/time advances our capacity to condense into form, but when we do we have to relearn that we are formless in essence.

That is what the various types of progressive spiritual experiences provide. I take it back to the notion of faith, love and trust. When we have it fully engaged within us, a decided choice indeed, then we automatically open our consciousness to those moments of serendipitous synchronicity; non-linear and non-local events we experience in the physical world simultaneously. Our consciousness flows effortlessly. Our mind has a hard time keeping up because of our belief systems or lack of experience to date. To this end we seek assurance, corroboration and validation of the high strangeness in our lives.

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.

A Fresh Edition 

advice - thoughtSupporting the quest for the truth in Ufology

Fifteen years into the new millennium and, objectively, we’re still no closer to getting along with each other. It is still hard to tell the truth about human-centric agendas and relationships, let  alone extraterrestrial encounters. What would possibly cause us to think we’d be able to embrace, let alone accept, open contact with races from places beyond our solar system?

Conspiratorialists would have you believe there are government cover-ups and military coups just waiting to pounce on the unsuspecting public. Others would have you believe that there are no threats from space, only our fellow humans are suspect. Information toward both perspectives is available and even prolific on the Net, but who’s vetting it?

Claims, confabulations and critical thinking are caught in a swirl of slippery slopes. How are we to know the truth? Is there something, some trick of the trade of discerning truth, that allows us to filter the information with some sense made common? Some say sensitivity to frequencies or vibrations may do just that, but we’re bombarded with stimuli that often produces a sensory overload.

If we just step back and look at all the social media postings about this, that or the other… can we determine the agenda of the poster? Is it just some arbitrary information that someone has come across and needs to feel like they are contributing, so they post it without comment or concern? What kinds of posts seem to draw out comments? Are the comments thoughtful responses or just truncated tidbits?

Communication is key in building any kind of community. It is even more important in ufology and tangential topic areas. Common understanding and common knowledge are often two vastly different perspectives. Even more critical and necessary a question: What are the real agendas of those who’ve become the ‘authorities’ or ‘personalities’ within the overall community?

Are we still facing the masks of the ego, or is there emerging hope for wego? After all, doesn’t the community build the future and evolve based on how well we all get along? That seems to be the message that filters down through the various sources who claim contact and are confident their experiences are not warped by belief systems or other psychological manipulations.

Have you noticed an emerging understanding that Ufology is less about phenomena and more about awareness or even consciousness? What are your considerations regarding the need for further research and study of the ‘phenomena’ as an external event-driven experience? What are your considerations regarding the need for further research and study of personal or internally-driven experience as part of the ‘phenomena’ today?

There seems to be plenty of stories about malevolent activity, but no proof to back them up. There are also many other stories of just the opposite and often no proof to back them up either. The reality is we’ve got plenty of video of various types of encounters and none of them show any malevolent activity. We know that throughout human history, populations have been manipulated through fear and mistrust.

Perhaps is we looked at the ‘phenomena’ with new eyes, free of presumption or postulation, and asked some basic questions there might be some sense made common that emerges. There have been a number of researchers over the decades since Roswell who’ve attempted to ask better questions. The stories of encounters or experiencers are tainted with deep-seated belief systems and perspectives skewed by varying degrees of intelligence and/or understanding.

Are we indeed planetary or galactic citizens? Are we human-centric or inclined to engage universal understanding through means beyond human? What does it really mean to be human? Is there a consciousness beyond the mind/body/spirit/soul complex? What might our evolutionary path look like as a human-centric civilization?

What might it look like from an expanded view, considering other worlds of form and/or consciousness? What might form, fit and function have to do with our reality? We have far more questions than answers currently. We have the ability to have conversations, too. Perhaps that is the next step – minimize the talking heads and incorporate or initiate facilitated discussions.

The latter is an enigma, often riddled with folks just wanting to tell their stories. Experiencer groups often challenge the facilitator to manage the conversations and minimize the pontification of those with self-serving agendas. They also need to be able to recognize when others have valuable understanding and wisdom to share. Groups of any size are always a challenge, no matter the topic. Communication protocols and procedures need to be in place for a community to develop effectively and have lasting results.

Frequency and Fallibility

Fsolfeggio tonesrequency and Fallibility

Humans are such strange creatures. We dance about, scream and shout and expect our inexperienced and traumatized rantings to overshadow everything. Whether it be a contact experience of non-linear and non-local nature, an NDE (near-death experience) or STE (spiritually transformative experience); they all have unique and similar responses in the consciousness of the individual.

Let’s look at the psychology within the science of harmonics, frequencies that produce resonant fields of varying strengths that apparently are an inextricable part of the ongoing contact experience. We carry our demons, those things that keep us from center and a harmonic experience of life.  They manifest in a variety of forms in our internal experience across the gamut of entheogenic to sacred ritual to even so-called ‘abduction’ experiences.

The experiences are very real for the one engaged and there’s no convincing otherwise at the time. Over time and with considerable reflection, study and personal transformation the conditions and interpretations change. It’s all do to frequencies and the ebb and flow, the rise and fall of their resonance within the linear human experience. We attract what we believe strongly, until we don’t. We see within what we fear without, until we ascend to the next frequency or level of consciousness.

Each level of consciousness has its own particular angels and demons, if you will, the way-showers and the testers to see if you learned. This is consistent with mystical practices from ancient texts. All things ascend from chaos toward the order of the universe, the advanced consciousness the permeates All That Is. And now for a message from our sponsor:

Perhaps as we grow in the knowledge of the order of the universe, we’ll also understand the predicament we put ourselves in by the clenching of our hold on particular belief systems. We are usually unaware of them until we have to face our creation. Then there is a choice as to the ability and capacity to let go and rise above or continue clenching. The latter usually produces undesirable experiences that are full of doubt and fear in all our imaginings, including the perception of interdimensional contact.

There are reports of malevolence amongst the rank and file of extraterrestrial encounters. It’s apparent that these things may indeed be possible, based on human perspectives, because we are conditioned into the notion that killing someone or something is perfectly normal. It isn’t. No where else in the universe of evolved planetary systems capable of star travel are any abhorrent activities even close to manifestation. They just don’t happen. It’s a frequency thing.

The frequency of consciousness it takes to understand and utilize universal laws in order to be capable of star travel is incapable of doing harm, period. Earthlings are still barbaric in the over all scheme of things, unwilling to get along and share in the sandbox of living on planet Earth. This is why so many of the contactees and even military witnesses have never experienced any malevolence from any encounter. The shutting off of the ICBM silos in the 60s is only one case in point. Their (off-planet folks) edict is ‘do no harm,’ kinda like the original Google motto.

There is encouragement from all levels of consciousness to ascend toward peace and harmony among people and planet, but we have to make those choices here and now… today… in this moment. That takes faith, love and trust; something many would attempt to destroy if given the chance because it causes their command and control environment to falter and loose effect. We owe ourselves the opportunity to consider and challenge our false belief systems. We won’t know the what can be until we consider being free of what has been. It’s a personal choice.

More recently the CE-5 events are an attempt to create an atmosphere of openness for contact. Other organizations are cropping up in an attempt to collaborate with contactees to help make sense of the scene. There are even frequencies recently rediscovered that apparently assist the process on a personal as well as group experience when intent and purpose align. Solfeggio tones are quite profound to experience, especially in group meditations. Contact has even been known to occur during such. We just experienced it in one of the groups I facilitate currently.

2015 IUFOC – from a patron

Jim-Zen-Liz-Cliff

Jim Dilettoso, Zen, Liz Alpert, Clifford Mahooty

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.

Why No Quality UFO Video?

alienanimation19WHY DOES UFO INTELLIGENCE DENY EXPERIENCERS QUALITY VIDEO DOCUMENTATION OF CLOSE ENCOUNTERS?

Joseph Burkes MD 2014

For over 20 years I have witnessed numerous UFOs in the course of fieldwork with contactee networks. Twenty years ago in the fall of 1994 UFO intelligence revealed to me the mechanism by which they create “hologram” like visual displays with anomalous “shooting stars” that were linked to consciousness and appeared repeatedly in the exact same spot at our request.

Each individual sighting of what was thought at first to be just a “meteor” had the exactly the same characteristics as the previous “shooting star.” Not only was their location in the sky identical, but they also had the same brightness, color, duration, angle of descent and length of trail. Amazingly each stereotypic visual display occurred seconds after we made the verbal request for them to appear.If UFO intelligence can create stereotypic illusions of “shooting stars,” then what we call “flying saucers” might also be “holographic” like projections. The significance of this proposition should not be underestimated.

What I suggesting is that the entire belief system based on the ET hypothesis for UFOs is being facilitated by the same mechanism. Some flying saucers rather than being understood as “objects” would be better described as technologically mediated illusions. This explanation is what I call the “Virtual Experience Hypothesis.” (For more details see the November 15th FB posting on the Contact Underground page. It is titled “DOES UFO INTELLIGENCE “HOAX” ENCOUNTERS FOR EXPERIENCERS?”

Despite raising the specter that some sightings of UFOs are illusions, I have no doubt flying saucers can be very physical and likely represent craft manufactured by an advanced non-human technology.

Consider the following

UFOs can be picked up on multiple radar devices while being seen by multiple witnesses.

They can trigger undeniable physical effects such as causing a large aircraft to shake violently when they rapidly pass by at very close range.

Please understand I am not saying that all flying saucers are anomalous visual displays created by UFO intelligence. I am asserting that some are physical objects, presumably “craft” and others, perhaps even most, are illusions. In my experience it is difficult for most observers to tell the difference between the two.

Although some sightings are physical objects, nevertheless the Steven Spielberg “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” types of images are seldom if ever videotaped by UFO witnesses. If such events are recorded, CGI technology for many puts their authenticity into question.

It seems to me that the intelligence responsible for UFOs doesn’t allow quality videos to be obtained except under perhaps the most unusual circumstances. Why is this so?

I worked with Dr Greer’s Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence from 1992 to 1998. For over five years I was the leader of a Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind contact team in Southern California. I also did fieldwork with the Hispanic contactee network called “Rama” in 1995. 2004, 2006 and 2009.

During many of our field investigations we had UFO sightings, but the quality documentation that we wanted to promote our contact work, recruit new activists and effectively silence the self-styled debunkers and media shrills was denied us again and again.

GULF BREEZE

From 1992 to 1994 four major encounters took place involving Dr Greer’s investigative teams. In only one of these events was quality videos obtained. This was in Gulf Breeze Florida in March of 1992 when two independent video photographers filmed three or four saucer shaped UFOs. Regular photographs using film were acquired during that amazing encounter as well. There were over 40 witnesses present.
FOR A BRIEF VIDEO OF THAT HISTORIC ENCOUNTER.https://vimeo.com/49694935

SOUTHERN ENGLAND

In July of 1992 a large brilliantly illuminated disc shaped craft approached Dr Greer’s team in the crop circle region of Southern England. It only did so however while a strong rainstorm was taking place that prevented photographic documentation.. This highly significant encounter was showcased on an episode of the Fox TV show “Sightings” that aired in January of 1993. On that episode two of the witnesses present described signaling that occurred between a large disc hovering in a field and Dr Greer’s team. There were three witnesses to this event, but again no video.

VOLCANIC ZONE NEAR MEXICO CITY

In Mexico at the base of Popocatepetl Volcano I was present on Feb 1, 1993 when a large triangular shaped UFO signaled with powerful lights at the CSETI team at it distance of less than three hundred meters. Suddenly all the camera equipment stopped functioning. This included a video camera, a 35 mm SLR camera, and a spring activated “Brownie” inexpensive type of camera. As soon as the UFO departed and disappeared behind the Volcano, all cameras functioned normally. There were five witnesses present but no objective documentation of the event was obtained.

LOS MITRES MOUNTAINS

In December of 1994 in Los Mitres Mountains of Northern Mexico a CSETI team witnessed a large saucer sitting on the side of a mountain. It was so close that the witnesses were reportedly able to see humanoid beings move along the outside of the craft. However the encounter was only able to reach this high level of contact after the CSETI leader Dr Greer and his assistant Ms Shari Adamiak agreed not to film the encounter after allegedly receiving telepathic communication from UFO intelligence requesting that no photography should be attempted. There were five witnesses present and no photographic documentation was obtained.

RECORD OF LOST OPPORTUNITIES

This historic record of lost opportunities indicates that the intelligence responsible for the UFO phenomenon does not easily cooperate with investigators to obtain quality objective electronic video and still film documentation during close encounters. In my opinion this is especially vexing considering the presumably cooperative relationship that contact networks have with UFO intelligence. Why is this so?

Decades of speculative deliberation have come up with a number of wild notions. None are very satisfying. Here are a few.

THE “ET” MASTER PLAN SCENARIO

UFO intelligence is following a long-term master plan that carefully modulates the level of contact that is most conducive for achieving their objectives.

If convincing videos were made available with multiple credible witnesses present during the filmings, this might lead to a precipitous realization that mankind is not alone with devastating effects on the belief systems that hold our planet together.

Stock markets could crash.

Fanatical new religions worshiping “space gods” might sprout up everywhere.

Fundamentalists might attack UFO experiencers as being the “Army of Satan. “

Militarists would call for trillions to be spent on space-based weapons to protect us from an “alien invasion” while enriching their corporate patrons.
This is just a short list.

ETs MIGHT HAVE A DIFFERENT BIOLOGICAL CLOCK

The “ETs” themselves might represent races of beings that as individuals live several hundred years. What seems to us an agonizing delay in getting documentation might be a very short time for them. For all we know “they” the so-called “visitors” have been here for thousands of years watching us and slowly revealing their presence in a gradual fashion.

In conclusion UFO observers, both the first time witness and long term experiencers, whether they be “contactees” or abductees,” are being denied quality video. This is because UFO intelligence has in my opinion deliberately prevents us from doing so, perhaps for some of the reasons discussed above.

This state of affairs in my view is not set in stone. Despite the challenges for both novice UFO witnesses and those who have been singled out for repeated sightings as “experiencers,” efforts to obtain quality video documentations of flying saucers must go on.

The possibility exists that in some time in the not too distant future, UFO Intelligence will ratchet up the level of interactions with humanity. Under improved conditions for communication and contact, they might be willing to grant opportunities for obtaining quality videos of UFOs.

A BOLD PLAN WHOSE TIME MAY COME

Imagine the following scenario. In an attempt to break the media “UFO truth embargo,” dozens of contact teams plan a world wide interactive event. Of course this can only be attempted with the strong support of flying saucer intelligence. Contact activists send an invitation to the ETs whose appearance is requested at designated fieldwork sites around the globe. Once on location the saucers allow themselves to be filmed and via Internet steaming video the whole world is watching.

“This is Impossible!” one might reasonably say. For now it is “impossible.” But in a decade or perhaps a generation, what seems like a wild scenario could become reality. To get this level of cooperation between UFO intelligence and those contact activists who are engaging the alleged “ETs” there would have to be far more openness and equality in the human/non-human relationship. This is a goal of the international networks of contactees that I have labeled the “Contact Underground.”

PERSEVERE!

My advice to my fellow UFO enthusiasts is that we will just have to be patient. Advances are being made in terms of less expensive quality night vision equipment as well as technology that might allow easier live uplinks to the Internet. This technology could be utilized by UFO Intelligence and contact workers to stage a live “People’s Disclosure “ event.

This is important because the UFO presence, especially if it turns out to be ET in nature, in my opinion threatens “the powers that be.” This includes the military, economic and political establishments of our planet. I believe that their opposition to acknowledging the reality of UFOs makes impossible both any official investigation of the phenomenon or their successfully achieving meaningful communication with UFO intelligence.

OUR BIRTH RIGHT

In a certain sense it is the responsibility of the people of the planet to develop a sustainable more open relationship with the alleged “ETs.” This will likely be achieved without any authority granting us “permission” to do so. As one who for over twenty years has promoted this campaign of human initiated contact, I believe such a mission is humanity’s birthright. No power on Earth should try to stop us from developing this important relationship.

Convincing People about UFOs?

 

ufo congress 1991WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT UFOs ARE IMPORTANT?

Joseph Burkes MD 2014

UFO historian Richard Dolan has described the initial reaction of many people to his passionate interest in the subject. They express interest, might even describe something they saw on TV concerning the phenomenon and then after a few minutes of his well informed explanation, their eyes gloss over and they are clearly bored. What about convincing people about UFOs?

THE ROLE OF AUTHORITY FIGURES

Yes opinion polls indicate the public is interested in UFOs, advertising executives have long known this, but the fascination is for most part quite superficial. Why is this? I suspect partly because of the massive denial of authority figures that say, “there is nothing to it.”

After all, the world is so complex; we rely on authorities to put to use vast amounts of data to make what we hope are reasonable decisions. Most people have little understanding of the technological “miracles” that science has achieved, but they are grateful and trust the devices, like planes, autos and computers to work reliably.

Needing to trust leaders I suspect might be built into our biology. For a million years before civilization was established, hunter-gatherers worked in small groups to survive. Leadership was a question of life and death and those clans that had the best leaders, the shamen and sha-women that knew how best to kill the animals or find the healing herbs and deliver the babies, played a critical role in survival. So we the people have a strong tendency to be,”we the sheeple.”

LINKING UFOs TO SOLUTIONS FOR MAJOR PROBLEMS

For the UFO question to take on special importance in the popular imagination it will need to be transformed from an entertaining diversion and become a way of addressing the seemingly insurmountable problems our planet is facing. This is already being attempted by those within the UFO community that discuss the possibility of downloading into our technological culture the secrets of the energy propulsion systems of flying saucers. So-called “free energy” in one fell swoop could eliminate poverty and pollution, thus possibly reversing global warming and ending world hunger.

Of course in order for the so-called ET’s to give us such devices they might understandably insist on a peaceful transformation of our planet to replace what UFOlogist Stanton Friedman has called our perpetual state of “tribal warfare.” This is going to be a hard sell when the mass media and academia in service to their corporate masters repeatedly insist, “There is nothing to it.”

HE WHO PAYS THE PIPER CALLS THE TUNE

From the control groups’ point of view, those of the clandestine forces determined to keep a lid on the UFO issue, an important strategy would be to recruit authority figures to block any significant discussion of flying saucers. Opinion makers who step out of line find that their access to funding cut off. This is all done behind the scenes and is quite effective in my opinion.

In the USA the National Academy of Sciences has made it perfectly clear that UFO studies are not part of the “legitimate” agenda for professional science. Scientists that step out of line will find themselves unable to secure grants thus ending their careers.

In broadcast journalism, talk show hosts that might attempt to inform the public in a detailed way, would find themselves without corporate sponsors. The major newspapers are controlled through their editorial boards that in turn are dependent on corporate sponsors to continue publishing.

This analysis is not a conspiracy theory. I describe the way power works. In the former Soviet Union it was the political dictatorship of the Communist Party that attempted to regulate almost every aspect of people’s lives. That social experiment failed miserably. In the West however social control is far more sophisticated, decentralized and uses the knowledge of social psychology called “public relations” to effectively manipulate the masses.

RESISTANCE TO CHANGE ALSO COMES FROM WITHIN

On the individual level our tendency to identify with our thoughts leads to a profound attachments to old ideas. This resistance to changing one’s point of view flows from the ego itself. People strive to maintain their religion, political ideology, or moral customs to the point where some would even are kill to maintain them. Just look at the present situation in Syria, or at the millions killed centuries ago during the Protestant Reformation in Europe.

So what will it take to change mass public opinion on the flying saucer question? Well mostly it depends on what UFO intelligence chooses to do. If “they” continue the present pattern of interactions, millions of individual sightings yearly, interspersed with occasional massive waves, I imagine that there will be opportunities to slowly build public awareness by a responsible program of education.

RESPONSIBLE PROGRAM OF PUBLIC EDUCATION

This will require UFO enthusiasts to discipline the crazies in our midst, think creatively and most importantly of all build stable, well-financed organizations to carry out the work. All this will need to be done in the face of a powerful opposition of groups that has great experience in controlling public opinion, the economy and their political operatives who run governments.

“TURNING PAGES IN A PLAY BOOK

Can we trust UFO intelligence to follow what we imagine is their existing “game plan?” I suppose not. After all we should never assume that we can think like the so-called “aliens.” The ever-changing pattern of interactions as pointed out by UFO researcher Grant Cameron appears to be as if they are turning the pages of a “play book” with Men in Black in the 1960s, so called “abductions” in the 70s, crop circles in the 80s and continued mental interactions with millions of experiencers many of whom are instilled with a sense of mission and are striving to convince their fellow Earthlings that we should look up and accept what our “lying eyes” are seeing.

My guess is that UFO intelligence will present us with infinitely creative new ways of waking us up from our collective stupor concerning their “wonders in the sky.” I am of the opinion that their presence is non-harmful and very likely to be beneficial to mankind. Bringing others to this hopeful perspective I imagine is a challenge that UFO activists will continue to face for some time.

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.

 

SETI Contact – Blue Sky?

SETI_logo_CMYKSETI Contact – Blue Sky?

The SETI Institute’s Jill Tarter makes her TED Prize wish: to accelerate our search for cosmic company. Using a growing array of radio telescopes, she and her team listen for patterns that may be a sign of intelligence elsewhere in the universe. Jill gives a wonderful talk about the diversity of creation, offering possibility and probability of the discovery of intelligent life beyond our current capacity to understand them. The latter is an extrapolation of the content of her talk. The message was that we need to continue to look for indicators based on our capacity to interpret data. Technological developments will likely increase our view.

Light, Sound and Psience.

Speaking of increasing our view, the discovery of intelligent life may also include an internal experience currently unavailable for scientific observation. This can get into some very subjective conversations for sure. Yet there are some indicators of potential life in other dimensions imperceptible to measurement, but nevertheless the apparent experience of a number of people. Science is offering a multitude of possibilities, so would it also follow that there might be an experience of some intelligence or intelligent region of consciousness as proof, a new living reality that could even be quantifiable as a logic path?

Let’s say there is a logic path for us to perceive that leads us to new conclusions, since our current ones haven’t shown much success. How might it show up and what might it offer experientially? If we look at our capacity for cross-referencing, the first thing we might look it is our common denominator, at least for life on Earth. We have a common thread that bonds us all together, like the number of man.

We are carbon-based life forms, ‘we’ being an indigenous view of the vast family and relatives sharing this world. We also have an electromagnetic device that runs our bodies and allows us to explore vast realms of feelings and thoughts, not to mention the physical activity we may be involved in when those myriad thoughts occur. Brilliant minds and creative sorts concur that stream of consciousness doesn’t have to be linear or even sequential. M theory would seem to validate the existence of time and/or space distortions. The other 90% of the brain, perceived to be dormant by some, might be linked in.

Carbon fibers are now being used to create super computers capable of massive data calculations far beyond any computer to date. There seems to be a relationship between carbon and silicon, though. Silicon allowed humans to create simulated brain functions and speeds considerably more than humanly possible, although there have been some exceptions to the rule. I find it amusing that it is the second most plentiful element in the Earth’s crust, behind oxygen which is the third most prevalent element in the universe.

So what does this have to do with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence? Based on the above, I assert that there is a bridge between worlds that can be experienced, but not in the traditional linear sense. It seems to happen in spurts and sputters, based on reports. If we consider multiple dimensions, then we must also consider each to have a different time/space relationship with our own.It seems we have some clear pointers, but to where?

It would also offer consideration for potential bleed-over that is observable and recurrent in at least a number of unrelated individuals, possibly a collective experience of others in collaboration. It would be one that offered an irrefutable experience of connectivity with something beyond each individual, associated with a general activity and potentially specific to the individual as part of a cohesive unit.

Is that too much of a leap in logic? Where might we look for SETI’s missing link, the bridge of inner and outer realities that would support this? Might we be on a kind of mobius strip as a result, moving in and out of realities in manners not currently comprehended by the human mind, yet presented in blipverts nevertheless? Those snippets of conscious and/or physical experience might offer clues to a larger reality, but conversations have to form in order to do validate it. Who’s on the short list?

So if there is an experiential component to this expansion of reality, what might it look like. Well, it might look like a myth evolving through many contributors who may not even be aware of each other initially. If we look to the Web, there is a thread that may offer insight. The name of the thread is the Galactic Federation (sometimes ‘of Light’ is included). In some cases a specific division known as the Ashtar Command is also prevalent. They simultaneously began showing up a few years after Roswell and have been gaining attention for decades of Earth time.

What are they? What do they say? Nearest I can figure is that their messages are generally experienced internally, like a neuro-network in subspace or potentially a different dimension that something, some change in our awareness, allows its perception. It appears some have had this capacity for perception the entire lives while others experience an event that shifts their perception. The latter could be a near-death, a spiritually transformative or even direct contact with other seeming off-planet races. They all have similar takes on the Galactic Federation being an advanced group of intelligent life forms that communicate the need for human transformation in a variety of ways.

There are many so-called ‘channels’ or ‘messengers’ of the Galactic Federation, with claims of being from other star-systems usually including Andromeda, Arcturus, Centaurus, Orion, Pleiadean and dozens more. These channels are consistent in the presentation of a theme, like harmony among people and planet, as their objective. They are inconsistent, however, with the manner in which this will occur, citing direct involvement to an evacuation plan. Neither of which is pertinent to the underlying message to humanity, “Live as One.”

What is pertinent is the practical approach to understanding the communication we are receiving, both internally and externally. Ships shutting off missile silos in the 60s is an example of direct contact externally. Another might be the deciphering of the message in the binary disc that was part of a crop circle formation in August of 2002. The binary disc decoded: “Beware of the bearer’s of gifts and the broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose the deceivers. The conduit is closing.”

The message seemed to carry a logical theme, understood to be the trials and tribulations of humanity, with some encouragement for the future. The puzzling reference is, ‘the conduit is closing.’ What could that mean? When coupled with opposition to deception, it might mean that those who’ve been able to deceive people will be exposed and/or vanish from the scene somehow. Common sense would dictate a collaborative action of concerned planetary citizens to be necessary.

So back to the topic of the missing link the internal experience. Is there an experiential bridge to the community of consciousness theoretically present within M theory? If so, what might it look like or better yet, how might we engage it and learn more? I’m sure more doorways exist, yet I know of one that works particularly well for preparing the way. It is called the ‘Multi-Plane Awareness Technique’ and was developed by William Swygard in the 1950s, so it has been in use for half a century now and my personal experience with it was nothing less than profound beyond explanation at the time.

As far as I know, there is no other recorded version available. It has traditionally been conducted with a facilitator who took notes of the experience as offered by the experiencer. A trained hypnotherapist or one who offers guided meditations can learn it quite easily and use it with their clients or cohorts in the unveiling of this cosmic mystery. My goal is to provide the opportunity for a direct experience of multiple dimensions of consciousness with the possibility of aligning them for greater self-awareness and functionality in this world. I’ve made it available on Amazon as an MP3 for a whopping $.99…. http://goo.gl/fGNX6…

If indeed our quest for extraterrestrial life turns out to be initiated from within, then we might have the next clues for our journey toward a new world order that serves humanity through the redistribution of resources to say the least. When we reduce or remove the need for violence, the good-will of others increases exponentially. I’d like to offer that further consideration and study be given to the link between worlds as a conscious experience, whether it turns out to be a function of the Galactic Federation or not.

If we are going to find harmony in the chaos around us, then we might begin to look where we haven’t. Like Einstein said, we cannot fix our problems with the same tools that created them. In this case, those tools created a disconnect between worlds. Maybe its time to think about restoring them, or at least finding out if they really exist. For me, they seem to be in unquestionable ways, yet the collective experience is still quite undecided as the challenge to recognize and change fear-based belief systems is ever-present.

Maybe that is the conduit that is closing, allowing free will to expand into new realms, some ofPaul+Hellyer2 which may hold the keys to our transformation as a planetary civilization learning to share a planet and its resources without distractions from unethical practices used to command and control populations. That is so old school; so last century. It’s time we grew up, not only in our behavior; in our thinking about life and our star families waiting for us to be safe for them. They’ve already proven beyond a doubt they are safe for us according to Paul Hellyer, retired defense minister for Canada.

Higgs-boson… alternative view

behold the universeThe GOD Participle…

another view of the Higgs-boson, formerly known as the GOD Particle.

The GOD Participle? What the heck is that? I’ll get to that in a moment, but I want to keep you guessing for now. Meanwhile, I’d like to take a look at the infamous ‘GOD Particle’… Higgs-boson as it is known. I’m asking you to join me in an exploration of another perspective of possibility that is perhaps way outside the box.

First of all, let’s look at what the Higgs-boson is reported to represent. Let’s look at a few definitions from across the web. From the Free Dictionary:

A hypothetical, massive subatomic particle with zero electric charge. The Higgs boson is postulated to interact with other particles in such a way as to impart mass to them. It is predicted by the standard model, but has yet to be isolated experimentally. The Higgs boson is named after its discoverer, British theoretical physicist Peter Ware Higgs (born 1929).

Here’s another interesting take from the Science – How It Works site:

Can’t matter just inherently have mass without the Higgs boson confusing things? Not according to the standard model. But physicists have found a solution. What if all particles have no inherent mass, but instead gain mass by passing through a field? This field, known as a Higgs field, could affect different particles in different ways. Photons could slide through unaffected, while W and Z bosons would get bogged down with mass. In fact, assuming the Higgs boson exists, everything that has mass gets it by interacting with the all-powerful Higgs field, which occupies the entire universe. Like the other fields covered by the standard model, the Higgs one would need a carrier particle to affect other particles, and that particle is known as the Higgs boson.

Now, that might give you at least a partial working knowledge of what the excitement is allet-humanyinyang about for the ‘discovery’ of the particle. Here’s the really interesting twist, though… There was no particle, but the ‘decay’ of which was determined to reveal the existence of the particle even though it was never ‘seen.’ I personally find the whole quantum physics perspective a little far-fetched. Science is supposed to be about hard facts and repeatable results. I’m fairly intelligent and it’s hard for me to wrap my head around a field yielding a particle that transmits mass.

It reminds me of the discoveries at Los Alamos that revealed the scientists observing experiments actually had an effect on them. So thought seems to affect the process, but doesn’t necessarily carry mass with it, unless it’s just baggage from a belief system. 🙂 At any rate, it just seems counter-intuitive that matter or mass is transferred via some theoretical particle. Furthermore, it would seem even more preposterous that an explosion would produce any such particle.

That explosion was the result of ramming two protons together at near-light speed. These ‘hadrons’ theoretically fuse together when collided and form another even smaller particle, a remnant. It’s like slamming two oranges together at breakneck speeds and having a fused seed as a result. That really makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? Perhaps it does. With all the technical jargon and mathematical equations, the analogy gets lost in the intellectual vocabulary that only scientists supposedly understand.

Okay, so now that we’ve made some progress regarding the ‘understanding’ of the Higgs-boson perhaps there is another explanation or even discovery that has gone unnoticed by the scientific community. It would seem that the lenses from which they are looking might be a little skewed or undervalued by ‘what’ they are look for instead of acknowledging what is really being ‘seen’ from simple observation. The discovery is just as magnificent, but may come as quite a surprise if they are willing to look.

Of course I could be totally wrong, but I think the logic will hold up at least for the purpose of sharing another possibility. Let’s start with just the observation of the explosion. It is at a sub-atomic level. In the electromagnetic spectrum and according to M-Theory, there are multiple dimensions or layers of ‘reality’ as one might perceive. The notion seems to be consistent with all the layers of bandwidth and understanding of the various frequencies that have been associated with different types of ‘rays’ whether from a scientific point of view or from an ‘ascended master’ POV. The latter involved varies ‘rays’ of consciousness instead of electromagnetic notations. Both probably describe the same thing.

So, this explosion then may produce a rip in the fabric between said ‘dimensions’ or ‘rays’ that is observable as the ‘decay’ of the particle in question rather than indicating an actual particle. The ‘decay’ is perhaps the reverse or ‘repair’ of the rip instead. Rather than proving the ‘particle’ theory it may indeed prove that M-Theory is indeed true and yet unseen in this example because the eyes that were looking had a different spectacle in mind.  Like I said, it may not be true. However, I think it at least is worthy of some further consideration.

What I find even more pertinent to the ‘work’ that scientists are performing on the substrates of reality comes from an announcement made many decades ago.  We, as humans, weren’t in a good place to really hear what was being said just yet. However, reviewing the text now does offer some additional insights, in the author’s opinion at least.

et-disc-binaryLet’s look at the first message known to be from Ashtar through the human known as George Van Tassel.

July 18, 1952

Hail to you beings of Shan, I greet you in love and peace, my identity is Ashtar, commandant quadra sector, patrol station Schare, all projections, all waves.

Greetings, through The Council of the Seven Lights, you have been brought here inspired with the inner light to help your fellow man. You are mortals and other mortals can only understand that which their fellow man can understand.

The purpose of this organization is, in a sense, to save mankind from himself. Some years ago your time, your nuclear physicists penetrated the “Book of Knowledge”; they discovered how to explode the atom.

Disgusting as the results have been, that this force should be used for destruction, it is not compared to that which can be.

We have not been concerned with their explosion of plutonium and UR 235, the Uranium mother element; this atom is an inert element. We are concerned, however, with their attempt to explode the hydrogen element.

This element is life giving along with five other elements in the air you breathe, in the water you drink, in the composition of your physical substance, hydrogen.

Their efforts in the field of science have been successful to the extent that they are not content to rest on the laurels of a power beyond their use, not content with the entire destruction of an entire deity at a time. They must have something more destructive, they’ve got it.

When they explode the hydrogen atom, they shall extinguish life on this planet. They are tinkering with a formula they do not comprehend. They are destroying a life giving element of the Creative Intelligence.

Our message to you is this: you shall advance to your government all information we have transmitted to you. You shall request that your government shall immediately contact all other earth nations regardless of political feelings.

Many of your physicists, with an inner perception development have refused to have anything to do with the explosion of the hydrogen atom.

The explosion of an atom of inert substances and that of a living substance are two different things. We are not concerned with their deliberate determination to extinguish humanity and turn this planet into a cinder.

Your materialism will disagree with our attempt to warn mankind. Rest assured, they shall cease to explode life giving atoms, or we shall eliminate all projects connected with such.

Our missions are peaceful, but this condition occurred before in this solar system and the planet, Lucifer, was torn to bits. We are determined that it shall not happen again.

The governments on the planet Shan have conceded that we are of a higher intelligence, they must concede also that we are of a higher authority. We do not have to enter their buildings to know what they are doing. We have the formula they would like to use. It is not meant for destruction.

Your purpose here has been to build a receptivity that we could communicate with your planet, for by the attraction of light substances, atoms, we patrol your universe.

To your government and to your people and through them to all governments and all people on the planet of Shan, accept the warning as a blessing that mankind may survive.

My light, we shall remain in touch here at this cone of receptivity. My love, I am Ashtar 

We now know that hydrogen is the bonding agent for the DNA helix as well. So, we are still somewhat ill-informed regarding our nature. Science is showing that, in spite of the purpose of the look, there are discoveries being made that extend beyond their queries. Consciousness is leaking through into the notion of scientific discoveries… perhaps.advice - no separation

Alright, I mentioned the GOD Participle earlier in reference to the discovery. (I just have to share
that there has been an appearance of a hummingbird several times outside my window as I’ve been writing this, peering in on me as it were. I have not noticed such an appearance in my new home/window to date.)

What is the GOD Participle? If you are an educator, especially an English teacher, then you’ll remember the definition of a participle:

a word formed from a verb (e.g., going, gone, being, been ) and used as an adjective (e.g., working woman, burned toast ) or a noun (e.g., good breeding ). In English, participles are also used to make compound verb forms (e.g., is going, has been ).

The definition gives away the answer. It’s quite simply the most elegant word in the English language, too. In order to observe the process of how I came up with the perspective that allowed me to present an alternative view of the Higgs-boson notion I had to be in a particular place. In the presentation of this place across a plethora of fields it is simply known as…. BEING. That is the GOD Participle. Perhaps you can explore it further on your own. I’ll be writing about it more in an upcoming book by the same title.

Like the separation of people that religion promotes, scientific perspectives are no different. It would be amazing to witness great minds step back and consider the possibilities their discoveries may indeed provide for mankinds evolution toward harmony among people and planet. Just for a moment, let’s look at the multidimensional aspect of this discovery. How might that fit into the broad ufology horizon?

Let’s consider the possibility of a multi-plane consciousness we haven’t really become familiar with as of yet. This model of the electromagnetic spectrum includes various layers of bandwidth with attending frequency ranges. Each of these layers has a theme; an awareness/function as well as a body perhaps, just like ours here on Earth’s bandwidth in the spectrum. Maybe these seeming holographic appearances of different lifeforms are just those able to cross the veils of the separation of the layers. We may have more neighbors than we think.

Thanks allowing me to rent space in your head for bit. I hope you found value in the duration of our shared space.
