Why No Quality UFO Video?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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.


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.


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.


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.”


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.


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.

Ufology – veritas numquam perit (truth never perishes)

rand_home_computer“UFOs: What to Do?”

Ufology began in the late 60s when the RAND Corporation (then a leading contractor for the U.S. Air Force) crafted a document that would become the guide for Ufology-related activities of that time, titled ‘UFOs: What to Do?” Rand’s vision of the home computer turned out to be far from the actual events. For years the document was denied, but eventually surfaced and is available in its entirety on the NICAP website. Was it more suitable to the future of Ufology? It begins…

Common sense is the quintessence of the experiences and prejudices of its time. It is a most unreliable advisor when one is confronted with a perfectly new situation. Gustav Naan

UFOs — unidentified flying objects, or flying saucers as they are often called — have been on the mind of the public for at least the last 22 years. For a number of reasons, we know little more about them now than we did at the outset. There exists a great amount of misinformation about the phenomenon not only in the minds of the public, but among educated groups such as scientists as well. It is the purpose of this series of essays to describe various aspects of the phenomenon, make clear my prejudices and the reasons for them, and to suggest a means of proceeding on this interesting and potentially very significant problem.

40 Years Later… Stephen Bassett… votum separatum

Who is Stephen Bassett?

Stephen Bassett is a leading advocate for ending the 65-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.  He is a political activist, lobbyist, commentator, the executive director of Paradigm Research Group and the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC) and executive producer of the X-Conference.  His work has been covered extensively by national and international media.

In September of 2011 Paradigm Research Group submitted a Disclosure Petition to the White House’s “We the People” project which generated a response from the Obama administration on November 4, 2011.  This response was the first time the executive branch has put a position in writing on the ET issue and is a milestone.  A second Disclosure Petition was submitted on February 23, 2012 designed to draw attention to the Rockefeller Initiative (1993-1996).

Concomitant with these projects is the continuing public awareness work via the PRG website and media appearances coupled with lobbying of the political media to take notice of what is easily the biggest and most important news story in history. Just how deeply involved is the extraterrestrial presence with our world and its people? Are they really living among humans? What do they want? Are they dangerous?

With the nation and world moving into new and troubling territory, Mr. Bassett will continue to work to create a broad based coalition within the extraterrestrial phenomena research/activist community capable of reaching out to the twenty million plus American citizens who are following the politics of disclosure with interest and concern.   The aim is to form a political awareness of sufficient size to meaningfully influence government policies and actions leading up to and following the formal acknowledgment of the extraterrestrial presence.

I have known Stephen for a couple of decades now, with a few personal chats andstephen bassett discussions about Ufology and his unyielding efforts to bring the Disclosure issue to the proper authorities. There are many who have been working toward disclosure, including Dr. Greer, that have brought credible folks together to share their stories. None, however, have been in the limelight in Washington, DC like Mr. Bassett. His work to constantly keep Disclosure (ET and UFO) in the Government’s ears and eyes is nothing short of a lifetime achievement and commitment.

Today concerned citizens have a way of assisting this effort. The recent Citizens Hearings are now on DVD and one of the Paradigm Research Group’s next projects is getting copies into the hands of Representatives and Senators. There is also a film in development about the work and how important it is for our development as a nation and world. Steve and the Paradigm Research Group, as well as many legitimate ufologists campaigning for disclosure, needs your help to keep the pressure on Washington, DC.

Do ETs have a Master Plan for Humanity?

Do the ETs have a “master plan” for contact with Earth civilization?

burkesTwenty years ago I was having a crisis in self-confidence concerning my lack of psychic ability. I had been the Los Angeles CSETI Working Group Coordinator for less than a year and felt inadequate to the task for a few reasons, most notably in the psi area. I “sent out to the universe” that if I was going to continue to serve as a coordinator in Dr. Greer’s campaign, then I was going to need to get some assistance.

Help arrived in a series of channeling type of experiences in which I “met” a number of alleged ET beings who told me “their version” of what it was all about. The information was “downloaded” into my consciousness as series of encounters while in an “awake dream” like state. These anomalous experiences in my mind’s eye took place mostly while on board ET craft where my “instructors” explained complex ideas in detail.

I was led to believe their “mission” to our planet was unfolding over centuries, that highly trained ETs interacted with us according to detailed plans and that they would assist our civilization to peacefully evolve to a point where we could join a larger community of star peoples. This is the standard fair for many contactees.

Do I believe what “they” (whoever they might be) “told” me is true? Well I guess the answer is both yes and no. Yes, in the sense that I have an emotional need to believe that a positive outcome is possible from my involvement in this campaign, otherwise I might have chosen a more popular doctors’ hobby like golf these past two decades. Kidding aside, as a general principle I have to question the veracity of this type of highly subjective communication. It is thrilling to get such narratives via mind, but since the “lessons” were in my opinion co-created by me and the so-called ETs, I can’t help wonder how much of what I experienced was a reflection of my inner desires and not necessarily the presentation of any “master plan” by benevolent star folk.

So is there an ET master plan? And if so, how do we find out what it is?
How do we know whether it is really “their plan” or just our wishful thinking? For argument’s sake let’s assume a “master plan” really does exist .Why should experiencers bother to consider following it? Or should we revise it for our needs? And how can we reasonably expect to explain such strange notions as a “master plan,” to the rest of the UFO subculture let alone to the larger society?

I understand that these questions are highly subjective and speculative in the extreme. Nevertheless UFO enthusiasts in general, experiencers in particular and especially contact movement activists, those whom I like to call “contact workers,” in my opinion need to become more self aware of the unseen forces that are at play in the contact drama that is unfolding all around us.

UFO intelligence in my experience interacts with us at a number of levels, conscious in terms of sightings, and unconscious in terms of the strange surfacing of memories of contact experiences, or a strange sudden desire to learn about UFOs that quickly becomes so passionate that it is labeled an “obsession” by family and friends who would just rather not think about such ‘foolish” things.

Increased understanding of our psychological motivations while interacting with non-human intelligence will help us explain to others our strange passion to investigate the UFO mystery. It is a phenomenon that in my opinion triggers a kind of “manic denial,” not only in the control groups who should know better, but also in the larger society that finds contact superficially exciting as a sci-fi fantasy but also deeply disturbing because of its tremendous import that the world’s people are just beginning to recognize.

A response

ZenGardenImho, the questions you ask are of the highest import in order for us, whether contact worker or layman, to get to the core of the experience and make some sense common. Evidently this was rippling through the thoughtmosphere as I woke up this morning with these very questions on my mind. I’ve had a variety of experiences that has left an indelibly and indeclinable notion in the depths of my being. What you note is that we have the question: “What do we do with this?” as currently under consideration.

Not only are there psychological considerations, but I also believe there are physiological considerations as well. The ‘downloads’ not only affect the mind. They often sensitize the body in ways that are uncomfortable at best in the beginning. The PSI factor goes deeper into the consciousness of both body and mind as an inseparable unit which it is already, we just tend to treat it separately. The intelligence that is interacting with us is already in a holistic system framework, something that humans are still grappling with from the onset of systems thinking in the 1990s. So what of the mind/body/spirit complex and the multiple levels of interaction? It is important to view the levels as both distinct and yet symbiotic.

From a project planning perspective regarding the ‘master plan’ it’s obvious there is much more to the roll-out of any plan. What are the goals? Within those goals, what are the objectives for individual or group achievement? What are the skill sets needed for the work to get done? Who is involved? What skill set do they bring? What is their level of commitment? Who can act as Translational Leaders? Translational Leaders are those adept at connecting, mediation, teaching, behavioral economies and social engineering. They demonstrate an uncanny ability to knit together different constituencies and institutions , brokering relationships and transactions across different levels of political, economic and social organization.

One of my experiences demonstrated the depth and width of the efforts across consciousness, industries and social architecture. To be offered that kind of view is mind-boggling enough, let alone attempting to articulate the experience without sounding like an obsessive town crier. Joe’s comment on ‘manic denial’ is not the case here. In fact the ‘view’ is consistent with any strategic plan carried out on a large scale. Most of us just don’t consider the magnitude of the ‘big picture’ because we are too busy attempting to understand on individual experiences. It’s similar to walking down the street and noticing that most people will not establish eye contact because they are busy looking down for whatever reason. What happens when we begin to look up?
