Mechanisms of Contact – Virtual Experience of the Second Kind

VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE OF THE SECOND KIND

Joseph Burkes MD 2017

Cases in the literature that support the Virtual Experience Theory, Part One 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.”

Virtual Experience Introduction:

What if UFO Intelligence is as advanced in the psi arena as they apparently are in “spacecraft” design? UFOs have been here for a long time. Whatever their origins are, flying saucer technologies are thousands, perhaps even millions of years more advanced than terrestrial engineering achievements.

When it comes to so-called “alien abductions” also designated as Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind, experiencers and investigators alike are confronted by many strange inconsistencies. Why has an “alien abduction” never been credibly captured on video? There has never been a report of the police being able to stop one in progress?

The Virtual Experience Theory attempts to answer these questions in the context of discussing what I believe are the tremendous psychic powers of this “otherness” that many experiencers now call “ET.”

What cases in the UFO literature support a mechanism of flying saucer intelligence being able to create virtual reality types of encounters? I offer two cases with the hope that these Virtual Experience narratives will facilitate additional testimony to surface.

CASE ONE AUSTRALIA 1970s

One example of a “virtual reality” type of case is described in “The Chinese Roswell: UFO Encounters in the Far East from Ancient Times to the Present.” This book was written by German UFO researcher Harwig Hausdorf and was published in 1998 by New Paradigm Books.

Hausdorf describes a series of encounters that reportedly occurred in 1972 and 1973. They took place in a mountainous region just southeast of Melbourne, Australia. The principle witness was Maureen Puddy. She reported having a UFO experience on July 5, 1972.

While driving alone in a desolate area her car was allegedly engulfed in an intense blue light. As described in Hausdorf’s account, she saw a saucer shaped craft. It had “a diameter of 100 feet, and was hovering at a height of two telephone poles above her.” She reportedly was terrified by this encounter and she sped away. The UFO then followed her for some eight miles before moving away.

Several weeks later while driving on the same road Maureen Puddy had another contact experience. This time the engine died when the same intense blue light flooded her car. She reported hearing “a voice in her head: ‘Take it easy,’ it said. ‘We don’t want to hurt you.’ Then it added, ‘Contact the media.’

Puddy returned several times to the same desolate location in February of 1973. On one occasion two researchers accompanied her from the citizens research group, VUFORS. She informed them that while driving to the location she had noticed a small being wearing gold overalls inside the car with her.

“While the three of them were discussing the appearance of the entity, Maureen thought she saw it again. This time it seemed like it was coming straight at the car. It stopped just in front of the left headlight.”

Maureen reportedly became agitated. Apparently at no time could the two VUFORS investigators see the small being in golden coveralls. Puddy then stated that she was being taken against her will into a craft that she believed was overhead. The blue light according to Maureen Puddy was present again.

While the VUFORS investigators sat in the car with her, Puddy described finding herself in a windowless room. She also said that in front of her was “a mushroom-like object that seemed to have a gelatinous liquid sloshing around inside it.” After Maureen Purdy finished describing to the two Australian UFO researchers what she imagined was an alien abduction experience, she calmed down.

German UFO author Harwig Hausdorf summed up this bizarre encounter.

“What was particularly odd about this entire incident, of course, was that Maureen Puddy never physically left the car during the whole time she was speaking. At all times, she was in full sight of the two UFO researchers. Nor could either of them ever see the small entity in gold overalls, nor even the intense blue light of the hovering UFO. It was as if the whole incident had taken place entirely inside Maureen Puddy’s head.”

If this account accurately describes what transpired over 40 years ago on an Australian highway, we see yet another example of how non-human intelligence of a presumed ET nature can skillfully interact with human consciousness by creating illusion. The very word “abduction” describes a violent physical act. However “abduction” may not be appropriate if the targeted human subject experiences a kind of theater of the mind and goes nowhere. I have designated this contact mechanism as a “Virtual Experience of a Second Kind (VE-2)

Perhaps a better term than “alien abduction” might be UPI, an “Unsolicited Psychic Interaction.” Unfortunately our cultural authorities, media and scientists alike seem to be afflicted with what might described as “manic denial” when it comes to not only the reality of UFOs, but also the importance of all parapsychological phenomenon. When the media portrays psi it is almost always used as a means to entertain and not to responsibly inform the public.

I suspect that the task to responsibly educate will fall on the shoulders of the UFO truth movement and the countless contact experiencers and their supporters. In my judgment these are the people that will not afraid to ask the hard questions and perhaps even be willing to entertain a notion as disturbing as my Virtual Experience Theory.

In Part Two, I discuss a case from Dr Karla Turner’s “Masquerade of Angels” that supports the illusory mechanism of contact that I call a Virtual Experience of the Second Kind.

On the Spiritual Side – Who’s Running the Show

I’m so thrilled to see the writings of several folks who’ve stood up to explore the greater possibilities of contact and what it might mean for us all. It’s triggered some memories for me and I did a little digging. I’d like to share an article I wrote in 1988 back before the Internet. The article is from a local metaphysical newspaper called Krystal Lighten published in August of 1988.

My eldest daughter’s name happens to be Krystal, so the ‘coincidence’ was very special. She’s a grandmother now.  It was the first article I had published and I’ve included it here with typos corrected. Admittedly, it could be written better. The point is that it’s nearly 30 years ago and we’re just getting to this kind of consideration in Ufology now.

On the Spiritual Side

Who’s Running the Show?

Have you ever wondered just what is really going on in your life? Would you care to entertain some interesting thoughts about this subject? Are you willing to question your beliefs?

We, I’m not going to cause major heartburn, yet there are some very interesting ideas I would like to present to you for contemplation; ideas that have taken an entire lifetime to come to this point of consideration and explanation.

First of all, we, as a planet, have been visited by numerous exterrestrial investigators. Why are they not more communicative with our world? Could it be that we are still so barbarous that we are not worthy of being taken into their confidence?

It seems as though our philosophy has been that if we try to make contact and are not acknowledged, we automatically believe we should take aggressive action to capture or shoot down the object of our communication attempt. A prime example is the Iranian airliner incident.

However, could the purpose of their visits be to begin the process of preparations for our planet to enter into the scheme of universe activities?

Second, our brains are only functioning at minimum levels of efficiency. What is the rest of the capacity that is untapped used for and how do we access it? Could it be that we are all “tuned in” at a level that we are not consciously aware of yet?

It seems to be popular belief that those with great understanding, such as Einstein, have had more use of the recesses of the brain. What about those who have various psychic abilities? We presently have five known senses with the “psychic” senses grouped into possibly one more.

We have five or six senses with the use of 10% of our brains. Could we deduce that as many as 45 senses are available with the other 90% of our brain capacity?

Lastly, many discoveries have been made in genetic engineering in recent years. Just how much more do we not know about the purpose of our genetic makeup? Could we all have a genetic predisposition that presupposes our ego-driven realities?

Many feel the time is coming for the planet to evolve into the next phase of our existence. The “plan” has not yet fully been revealed yet many groups are working on bringing new approaches to our everyday lives.

But just who is going to be responsible for engineering the cohesive efforts of all the groups to achieve such an age of enlightenment? Is it just going to “happen”?

Could the genetic makeup of certain individuals be such that they would be able to efficiently engineer the beginnings of the “New World Order” and be able to lead the rest of the planet toward our rightful place in universe status?

A New Effort

We’ve reached out to several authors who are respected among peers to become contributing authors here on Ufology Press. We look forward to their participation and are sure you’ll find their articles insightful and investigative. Thanks for your attention.

So many years later, I’ve written a number of books as well. Two of them that are getting great responses are Cosmic Conundrum – Who Am I? and Stubbing My TOE on Purpose.

Alien Agendas and Anal Probes

Aliens and Anal Probes – Jason Colavito

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

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

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

The first thing that popped into my head was not some New Age influence speculation. I’m a math and science buff, intelligent and investigative beyond most. Math and science are so present in the constructs of the universe, beginning with the foundation of sound and light condensing, or lower the vibratory rate, into form.

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

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

What happens when the vibratory rate is adjusted by such measures? Usually an orgasm is the first thing. That’s why the mistaken idea of sexual experimentation comes, no pun intended. We are so oppressed in regard to considering or discussion anything of a sexual nature that folks haven’t been able to transcend their paradigms. In time, we will.

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

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

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

And so the excerpt:

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

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

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

Just in case you want to read the whole thing…

Oldies But Goodies in Ufology

Has Anything Really Changed?

So many years ago Mike Wallace interviewed Donald Keyhoe about UFOs and Government coverups. The recommendations of the original focus group to study the UFO phenomena was to reveal everything that had been found to date to the public, then move forward with continued and deeper investigation of the phenomena. Listen in…

Only a short time later…

George Van Tassel, an airport operator and businessman, was interviewed about his contact with ‘others’ in 1964. So, Donald’s reluctance to discuss the ‘contactee’ aspects of the UFO phenomena in his interview, although some had indeed happened, is ‘trumped’ by these experiences of Mr. Van Tassel.

A decade or so later…

The Brits have been a leader, of sorts, in pretty much everything that involved global expansion. They’ve been doing it for centuries, so it is only logical that the next event was aimed at them. Well, it was a British television station that was interrupted with an important message from an off-planet source.

What have we learned?

The original recommendation to share the information with the public has still not been honored, the military as tight-lipped as ever. It makes it easier for folks to create stories and find an audience in those who delight in any information, true or false. Nonetheless, the Disclosure Movement is continuing to grow through the efforts of Bassett and Greer among others…

There seems to be a tremendous upsurge in the idea that disclosure isn’t necessary. There are enough folks who either claim contact experiences or have evidence enough in how they frame their own questions of incredulity that the believability factor is higher than usual. The Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research in Extraterrestrial Encounters even has anonymous surveys that provide the most incredible credible information available about contact experiences.

Perhaps in the next few years or so the acceptability of contact experiences will grow enough to be included in the major ufology gatherings around the world. Some at least have ‘contactee’ opportunities for sharing, but they seem to be more about hypnotherapy needs than direct contact. Make sure to check those events out over in the event scroller on UFOlogyPRSS.

CONTACT NETWORK HISTORY PROJECT

A Close Encounter of the Third Kind with Love.

Joseph Burkes MD 2015

It has been said that consciousness is the “golden thread” that ties us to UFO intelligence. After all if the ET hypothesis is correct and UFOs are an extraterrestrial manifestation, then we are going to be very different from them. We don’t share a common history, language or biological evolution, but what both humans and ETs have in common is that we are awake and are aware of that wakefulness.

Perhaps we can share states of being that come from that clear quiet place that we call consciousness itself. For those of us who have met the visitors face to face, there exists the possibility of sharing a sense of peace or joy. Although it may sound corny, as this narrative suggests we may also be able to communicate with, and share love.

“COMING OUT” OF THE UFO CLOSET

My initial enthusiastic support for CSETI ‘s contact efforts led me to a rather daring action. Some would call it foolish. I decided to set up a CSETI information booth at the American Public Health Association’s annual meeting held in Washington DC in November of 1992. I was accompanied by my medical group partner “Dr. Daniel.” He was in our Los Angeles CSETI CE-5 Initiative Working Group.

The APHA’s meeting draws about 10,000 health professionals whose political views are more to the left than mainstream medicine’s views. The APHA has historically championed the health rights of women, ethic minorities and workers. During the first few years of my medical career I had actively participated in the Occupational Health and Safety section of the APHA. In 1979 I was co-founder of the Los Angeles Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, a coalition of health care and legal professionals that endeavored through education and advocacy to make the workplace safer.

WORKING THE CROWD

At a beautiful new convention center in the nation’s capital, under a royal blue banner embroidered with the slogan, “ One Universe, One People!” Daniel and I “worked” the conference participants. A small TV monitor played dramatic footage of UFOs, while I called out to passersby, “Would you like to see a UFO video?” Apparently quite a few did, over 250 nurses, doctors and administrators watched the film clips and chatted with us during the 3-day conference. About forty signed up for more information and the bravest shared their personal stories of sightings and other contact experiences.

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND WITH LOVE

A Ph.D. professor of nursing gave the most impressive report to me. From her convention badge I identified her as a faculty member from a major university. She watched the videos for a few minutes and then allowed me to interview her about her personal contact experience.

Some 7 years before she reportedly had a Close Encounter of the Third Kind. After nightfall while camping with her fiancée, her tent was filled with a very bright light. All around the campsite she could hear footsteps. Apparently from prior encounters she immediately realized that she was having a contact experience. The professor reported not being able to move but was fully awake. She could not stir her friend that was sound asleep. One humanoid stuck his head into the tent. By her description the being was the typical so called “Gray,” big head with wrap around eyes. My nursing colleague told me that she was happily excited and frightened at the same time.

The being quickly retreated but she could see his shadow and those of several others on the walls of her tent that was illuminated by the campfire light. She told me that she sent out the thought, “ I love you.” In a flash she felt a forceful burst of electric type energy. The sensation surged through her body from the top of her head down to the tip of her toes. The beings left her campsite and the encounter was over.

There are on the exhibit floor, under the bright lights with hundreds of booths and thousands of participants around us, she had described the experience simply, matter of fact, with just a touch of amazement. I was a perfect stranger to her and yet she was willing to share her recollections of an intimate contact with what she believed were non-human beings. I described to her the ambitious goals of CSETI’s CE-5 Initiative. She listened politely but chose not to sign up for more information. After all she was a professor at a major university and the notoriety of being a contact experiencer might cause her considerable harm. She wished me well in my crusade and walked away, disappearing into the crowd.

About the author: Joseph Burkes MD volunteered as a Working Group Coordinator for the CE-5 Initiative from 1992 to 1998. He has continued to study the flying saucer phenomenon working with MUFON and the Peruvian contact network now called Rahma. He is co-author of the book “Paths to Contact” edited by Jeff Becker. Dr Burkes retired from the Southern California Permanente Medical Group after thirty years service in 2008. He is a board certified internal medicine physician and is licensed to practice in California.

Compatible History

and response from the curator….

Dr. Burkes knows far too well that the consciousness we call ET is so connected to what we also call ‘unconditional love’ that it seems surreptitious that others would engage in fear-based conspiracy theories, imho. The frequency response of such deep levels of love can initially feel so intense that they indeed are a bit frightening; the unfamiliar sense of being totally and unconditionally ‘loved’ by high-frequency beings.

We ‘see’ them in many ways, from humanoid-looking (most appeasing) to reptilian (most challenging) and even non-bipedal creatures as well. It’s been said that we/they present themselves according to the viewer’s capacity or willingness to see. A lot of the current focus, though, is still on the lower vibratory realms, the research on encounters, sightings and such. Bridging the professional realms, like Joe did with the APHA, is critical and I believe mandatory today.

International Association for Near Death Studies

I had the opportunity to do the same a few years ago, with the International Association for Near-Death Studies. I applied for a presentation spot at their 2010 annual conference in Denver and got the nod, unexpectedly. After some scheduling rearrangements (initially having an hour, then a half-hour, then being put on a panel with two others and given 20 minutes as I stepped on stage) I felt a little uncomfortable with such demands that I felt were a bit unprofessional. Still, I was there and on stage.

I had a feeling things were going to go awry, so I didn’t put my powerpoint together until during the speaker just before us. It turned out to be perfectly timed… I came in just over the 20 minutes they allotted. During my presentation to the clinicians and medical professionals I introduced the notion of how the OBE’s, NDEs and STEs were all related and easily lended themselves to accessing what we call ETs and more, including cosmic consciousness.

I noticed some shades drawn with some of the audience but one individual in particular who was a long standing expert in the field, P.M. Atwater, was smiling from ear to ear and nodding continuously as I broached the delicate bridge. I knew I was going to hedge the edge of acceptability with this particular crowd, yet afterward there were several who congratulated me on bridging those worlds. No one to date had attempted to do so at the IANDS annual events.

Btw, I wasn’t invited back, either. 🙁 Still, the information was shared. Having multiple close encounters throughout my life has been both a blessing and a curse. I’m blessed with a greater understanding of the ‘non-humans;’ their perspective on universal law and order. I’m cursed with the misunderstanding and projections of others who are unable to hear from within.

Keep up the great work, Joe!
