MECHANISMS OF CONTACT – VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE OF THE SECOND KIND

Mechanisms of Contact – Virtual Experiences of the Second Kind

Cases in the literature that support the Virtual Experience Theory, Part Two of Two Parts.
A Virtual Experience of the Second Kind (VE-2) is a real time full sensory technology created illusion that is popularly described as “Virtual Reality,” and is portrayed in the popular sci-fi film “The Matrix.”

The following is a synopsis of Chapter 3 of “Masquerade of Angels”, by Karla Turner, Ph.D. with Ted Rice, Kelt Works 1994. This narrative demonstrates how UFO Intelligence can use psychotronic technology to create a Virtual Experience of the Second Kind.

A MASQUERADE OF ANGELS

Ted Rice was a bank worker and part time psychic. He crew up in the backwaters of Alabama in the 1950s and attended college in Tuscaloosa. Later he moved to work in Shreveport Louisiana. A woman by the name of Marie Jackson trained him in psychic development and brought him into a spiritualist association. By 1990 he was no longer active in the spiritualist movement but still maintained his friendship with Marie who was living in Florida. While staying overnight at Ted’s mobile home Marie reported having a bizarre experience.

THE WALLS OF THE HOUSE DISAPPEARED AND MARIE COULD SEE OUTSIDE

According to Karla Turner’s account, Ted was lying down in his bedroom while Marie was reading in another part of his house. Marie roused Ted and informed him the following,

“ ‘I was reading in bed,’ Marie told him, ‘still pacing, and don’t feel like I drifted off to sleep. I raised up in the bed and looked around, and suddenly all the walls in the trailer just, just disappeared!’… ‘I could see outside. I could see from one end of the trailer to the other, and I could see all the way down into your bedroom. The walls were just gone!… I saw the two strangest spirits I’ve ever seen in my life! They came right through where the wall should be, and they walked up and started trying to take me outside.’ ’’

According to Dr. Turner’s narrative Marie vigorously protested to the “small grayish beings” that subsequently left her alone.

Chapter Five of “Masquerade of Angels” contains one of the remarkable contact experiences ever described in the UFO literature. Its importance should not be underestimated because if accurate, it reveals the absolutely tremendous psychic capability of non-human intelligence to create illusion. Dr. Turner’s account raises disturbing questions for the entire UFO research community and challenges some of the most cherished notions of the saucer subculture about the nature of CE-3s and CE-4s.

AN EXPERIENCER IS ENVELOPED BY A BLUE GLOW WITH LIGHTNING TRAILS

Soon after Marie’s encounter in Ted’s mobile home, he traveled to visit her in Florida. Another masquerade of angels = mechanisms contact - virtual experiences second kindgood friend of Marie’s called Amelia Reynolds was also visiting her. After several hours of conversation the three retired for the night. Ted was assigned to the bedroom down the hall. Marie and Amelia slept in twin beds in a room on the other side of the house.

In the middle of the night Marie was reportedly awakened by Amelia. She told Marie that she could hear a low flying helicopter flying. Marie reportedly heard no such sound.

Amelia suddenly froze while staring up at the ceiling. According to the narrative Amelia told Marie that she was able to view the copter as if the ceiling and roof had completely disappeared.

‘I’m not asleep.’ Amelia protested, raising her head from the pillow. Her eyes still gazed upwards. ‘I swear to you. I can see a helicopter right up there! By that big tree with all the leaves. I see the front of the thing, it’s rounded and the legs are folded underneath.’

‘Well, why can’t I see it, then?’ Marie asked, exasperated. ‘I don’t know. Amelia replied.’ “A bluish glow then reportedly materialized around Amelia while she sat up in bed. She told Marie that she felt paralyzed and was unable to move despite Marie’s urgings to “Get out of there!”

Amelia then described the appearance in the bedroom of two non-human beings, one tall green and lizard like, the other shorter and blue-black in color. Marie told Amelia that she did not see them and shouted for Ted to come and help.

According to Dr Turner’s account Ted saw a “blue glow” as he approached the bedroom. It was “emanating from the open doorway.” Dr Karla Turner’s narrative continues.

“Inside, Marie had circled around the room and was waiting for him, pressed back against the farthest wall from where Amelia lay motionless, enveloped in the brilliant light. Ted stepped in uncertainly and then stopped dead in his tracks, staring.”… They inched closer to the bed, still keeping a healthy distance from the blue glow that was now filled with tiny, rapid explosions of lightning trails. “ Marie yelled at Amelia to “Get out of there.”

Karla Turner’s remarkable account continues with Amelia complaining that she could hardly hear Marie. Ted inquired if Amelia was being hurt in anyway. Her response was that she was not. Ted counseled Marie that they should not take any drastic action. “We don’t know what might happen if we try to pull her out of that energy field….” The encounter came to a close when the blue light suddenly flashed off.

All during the experience, neither Marie nor Ted could hear or see the beings and the helicopter that Amelia reported seeing. She later reported not being aware of the bluish sphere of light that both Ted and Marie had reportedly witnessed.

PSYCHOTRONIC TECHNOLOGY OF THE HIGHEST FORM

What is so remarkable about this narrative is that it describes two witnesses that allegedly were able to observe a kind of “virtual reality” process at very close range. If the encounter truly unfolded as described in the “Masquerade of Angels,” perhaps we have been given a very rare glimpse at the mechanism employed to stage some of the “high strangeness” interactions that are being labeled “alien abductions.”

Ted Rice and Marie Jackson were in full psychomotor control of their bodies when they observed Marie actively hallucinating. The presence of the blue light, and lightning like flashes within the orb that surrounded Amelia, all point to some kind of advanced technology that took control of her mental processes by creating a very convincing illusion. Thus we are dealing with an intelligence that can not only simulate reality for the chosen target individual, but can also stage the encounter under circumstances allowing others to closely witness the event.

As we see from the events described in “Masquerade of Angels”, the intelligence responsible for these bizarre encounters may have the capability to produce a kind of “virtual reality,” an altered state of consciousness that an experiencer might not be unable to distinguish from every day-run-of-the-mill reality.

The entire book “Masquerade of Angels” by Dr. Karla Turner is available to read on line as a pdf file by googling the phrase.

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.

MECHANISMS OF CONTACT, “PRIME CONTACTEES “

MECHANISMS OF CONTACT, “PRIME CONTACTEES “

Introduction

When I first described this type of UFO experiencer in May of 2014, I was surprised to see a controversy result. My description of the so-called “prime contactees” was labeled by some as “elitist.” I was accused of trying to create a popularity contest in which ordinary contactees’ role would be seen as insignificant next to the “supreme status” of the so-called “primes.” Fellow senior contact activists angrily informed me that I was being “divisive.”

Well I certainly didn’t intend to trigger such a controversy. Responding to those offended I wrote a second article with the title “Prime Contactees Are Just the Tip of the Iceberg.” The original controversial blog in an edited form is presented as Part 1 below.

As part of this introduction I should point out that the term “contactee” is in many ways outdated. The “ee” ending suggests a passive role in English, as in “employee” or “payee.” The “er” or “or” endings suggest a more active role as in “worker, soldier, mentor.”

For those who have joined a contact team, or have carried out contact protocols on their own, reaching out to the intelligence behind the UFO phenomenon can involve much mental, physical and most importantly spiritual work. Thus in my view the designation “contact worker” is superior to “contactee.”

In addition contactees historically have focused on the bizarre and often mystifying nature of their contact experiences. In a sense their personal encounters have been the message. This was a fairly constant feature of the UFO clubs during the 1950s that had thousands of members and celebrated the alleged encounters of contactee subculture celebrities like George Adamski and others.

“Contact workers” I imagine in contrast to “contactees” envision their ongoing encounters as part of a worldwide transformation of consciousness that links the flying saucer phenomenon with necessary solutions to the seemingly insurmountable problems that humanity is facing. I am referring to the scourges of war, hunger, racism, and global climate change. So for those of us who are part of what I like to call “The Contact Underground” let’s drop the term “contactee.” Since we are doing a lot of work on this issue, another alternative could be “contact workers.” If this sounds to “old left” the alternative “contact activists” will do just fine as well.

WHO ARE THE PRIME CONTACTEES AND WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

And the potential for creating a new kind of social movement.
Joseph Burkes MD 2015

As the UFO truth movement grows and increasing numbers of young people are excited about the possibilities of encountering intelligent life in the cosmos, the special role of a very select group of UFO experiencers should be examined. In the early 1990s I became an organizer for a number of contact groups. Since then I have observed a small number of remarkable individuals who more or less match the criteria for being what I have termed “prime contactees.”

A “prime contactee” is a UFO experiencer that has some of the following characteristics,

1. Apparent contact with UFO intelligence from childhood or as a young adult that involves special training in consciousness-based communication and the concomitant development of other advanced psychic abilities. This often involves meditation practice as a youth and is typically initiated without any apparent parental or other adult supervision.

2. Repeated sightings of UFOs when other people are present to verify that the “primes” can share their ongoing contact experiences with others.

3. A sense of “mission” involving informing the public of the importance of contact, or playing a supporting role for other contactees who are educating society on this topic. Forming new contact groups or joining existing networks is another manifestation of activities derived from a sense of having a personal mission.

4. In the most advanced “primes,” perhaps people like Dr Steven Greer or the man that I call “Misha” in my reports, they are likely having ongoing mental communication with UFO intelligence. This might even include direct telepathic communication (voice in the head) with the intelligence responsible for flying saucers.

5.This last feature is particularly risky for primes. If the larger society learns of such capabilities, those individuals will be mistakenly labeled as a “kooks” and be subjected to intense ridicule. Their sanity will almost certainly be questioned and forced psychiatric evaluations could also result.

6.More importantly if the primes’ special link to an extraterrestrial intelligence becomes known by the control groups, (those powerful clandestine forces attempting to keep a lid on the UFO situation), in my opinion at a minimum the primes will be subjected to intense surveillance.

HOW THE CONTROL GROUPS OPERATE AGAINST THE CONTACT NETWORK

In my opinion there is a high probability that private contractors working for the control groups are being recruited from government intelligence services to monitor and even harass high-level contactees. Thus these servants of the status quo probably see the primes as “enemy agents of influence” working for what I like to call “a higher intelligence agency.”

In some very unpleasant instances prime contactees have even been attacked by what might be called “psychotronic” technology. I personally learned of the effects of such attacks on contact activists when I was closely associated with Dr Greer’s Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence during the years 1992 to 1998.

Under certain circumstances the control groups in a less confrontational mode might even attempt to co-op primes with offers of money and access to privileged information available only to “insiders.” This kind of co-opting effort reportedly happened to Dr Greer while attending a UFO conference in the spring of 1992. He shared this information with the CE-5 Initiative Working Group Coordinators, including me, Shari Adamiak and Wayne Peterson. Alas these last two prominent contact workers are now deceased.

Indeed the passing of many of the first generation of North American contact activists is one of the reasons why I am initiating this “The Contact Network History Project.” My hope is to share these narratives with the current and future generations of contact workers. Jeff Becker’s anthology “Paths to Contact” of which I am one of many co-authors has a similar goal. I recommend it to all members of the network.

THE PERILS OF BEING A PRIME

To be a prime contactee I imagine is a heavy cross to bear. If the special relationship with non-human intelligence is made public, critics will likely deem primes “insane.” On the other hand once their extraordinary ability to attract UFOs is established within the flying saucer subculture, the primes are often turned into celebrities. They are treated as if they are special (which they are in many ways) but unfortunately some may start believing that they are better than everyone else (which they are not!)

So the contact network may need to protect prime contactees, not only from a doubting larger society in which mainstream media will make fun of them, and from the control groups that may try to “neutralize” them, but strangely enough contact activists may need to protect the primes from themselves as well, from an egoism which is reinforced by people’s tendency to engage in hero worship.

THE DANGERS OF EGO -BASED CONFLICTS

This last point is apropos to what I believe happened to the Peruvian based Rama contact group back in the 1990s. Rumors of plagiarism and the use of donations to fund what was characterized as affluent life styles, appears to have played a major role in causing that once vibrant group to implode. According my sources within ranks of this very important organization their numbers were decimated. In fighting among the leadership resulted in much disappointment that turned into bitterness.

Uncontrolled adulation in susceptible individuals might “turn” prime contactees from the altruistic path of serving a nascent “contact movement” to the more selfish position of insisting that their supporters should service them! I am referring to the tendency of contact groups to take on aspects of cults.

“Servicing” the primes might involve giving them large amounts of money, often under questionable circumstances, the granting of sexual favors and in general satisfying their personal needs to feel important and to be the center of attention.

From decades of social cause activism during the 1960s through 80s, I learned that in order for radical reform campaigns to succeed they need to fire up the enthusiasm of the grass roots and not focus on the many strengths while ignoring the weakness of those leading them.

THE BIG PICTURE

This analysis is offered within the hopeful framework that a benevolent and technologically advanced ET civilization is at this moment interacting with humanity. My hope is that their presence will inspire us to create an Earth civilization based on peace, cooperation and social/economic justice. I believe this is true because such ethical advancements, including the forever banning all war, is in my judgment a precondition for any alien culture to travel across the sea of stars.

In the absence of such radical cultural advancements in an ET civilization, the powerful energy systems required for interplanetary and/or inter-dimensional travel would be applied to create weapons so powerful that their evitable use would destroy the very civilization that created them, thus preventing them from getting very far out into space beyond their star system of origin.

THE BENEFITS AND RISKS OF ADVANCED ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES.

Currently there is much speculation about the possibility that if the advanced propulsion systems that allow flying saucers to operate were downloaded into our technological culture, then tremendous benefits would accrue. If advanced technologies were used for peaceful purposes, then global warming, environmental pollution and even world poverty and hunger might be eliminated.

In the short term our achieving this kind of sweeping political and economic transformation is a big “if.” For such dramatic events to happen, the control groups’ campaign labeled the “UFO truth embargo” in my judgment would have to be self-curtailed or overcome by a stronger force. Such a force I imagine could very well be a skillfully organized and adequately funded future “contact movement.” This would by necessity involve not hundreds of activists worldwide, (my estimate of our current strength) but rather require millions of dedicated participants.

In addition negotiations with the so-called “ETs” to obtain their technology would likely only occur under conditions of world peace. This would be necessary to ensure that advanced technologies would not be used militarily against the alleged “aliens” as well as these technologies being used against ourselves.

THE FUTURE OF THE CONTACT MOVEMENT

This long-term plan to create a contact movement will require the participation of countless activists. As the ranks of contact workers increase, as it appears to be happening now, then I imagine that the importance of those that I call prime contactees will likely decrease.

Creating a new kind of social movement linking UFOs to solutions for the major problems confronting mankind is indeed a very ambitious project. Critics will likely say, “It’s an impossible dream.” My reply is that we will either evolve as a race of intelligent beings or we will destroy our civilization by war and man made environmental catastrophes.

If creating a bright peaceful future both here on Earth and in the cosmos is called “impossible” by the so-called “authorities,” then I have but one thing to say to contact activists, “Be realists: demand the impossible!”

New Hope with The UFO Disclosure Advocates

Recently Dr. Joseph Burkes interviewed Dr. Lisa Galarneau & Russ Calka from The UFO Disclosure Advocates on IRN Radio. It’s worth sharing and providing information about The Disclosure Advocates.

UFO Disclosure Advocates Make Strongest Closing Argument Yet!

Monday, May 8th, 2017 at 9 pm EDT, EPIC Voyages Radio’s resident Medical Doctor, Dr. Joseph Burkes M.D. leads a discussion with Disclosure Advocates Dr. Lisa Galarneau and Russ Calka about the government actors who actively play a role in misdirecting the public about the existence of extraterrestrial life and the black projects assigned to studying the UFO phenomenon.

LISA GALARNEAU

Dr. Lisa Galarneau | Do You Believe Disclosure is the Key Issue of Our Time?Lisa Galarneau is She considers herself a socio-cultural anthropologist, futurist, US Army veteran, and experiencer since childhood, Lisa is committed to illuminating the truth about our extraterrestrial and extradimensional visitors as well as challenging the truth embargo.

Her employment background includes stints in cryptology, telegram singing, and commercial anthropology, which she currently works in today. When earning her PhD, Lisa studied the anthropology of online gamers, traveling to thirteen different countries to study behaviors in different environments.

We Believe Disclosure Is The Key Issue Of Our Time

“I have always taken it for granted that contact with extraterrestrial life is looming on the horizon for humanity. As an optimist, I tend to see this as something that would be full of possibility, and indeed the very thing we need as a society in these perilous times, rather than something to fear. “- Dr. Lisa Galarneau

RUSS CALKA

Russ Calka | Do You Believe Disclosure is the Key Issue of Our Time?Russ has been fascinated by the UFO topic since childhood and is an impassioned leader in the Disclosure movement. Previously an active member of the Disclosure Lobby, Russ has now taken the reins for the U.S.- based Disclosure effort.

Disclosure Will Advance Our Development

“Convinced by overwhelming evidence of an extraterrestrial intelligence engaging the human race since 10 years old, I have come to the final conclusion that the ONLY thing that will save this planet from self-destruction and and allow the Human species to advance our development amongst the stars is the formal acknowledgment of an Extraterrestrial presence. It’s called #Disclosure. It’s the law. It’s desperately needed.” – Russell Calka ​

The Disclosure Activists Manifesto (of course there is one)

The Disclosure Activists

We know without a doubt that our planet is being engaged by offworld civilizations that are extraterrestrial or extradimensional in nature. As an activist group, we are committed to uniting various research groups and organizations in ​order to get this story out to mainstream audiences.

We stand for the following:

  1. We do not support any truth embargo enforced by government, press and media, nor the scientific establishment. We know that vast amounts of evidence are routinely ignored or covered up by these organizations.
  2. We do not believe that there have been efforts to contact offworld civilizations (i.e. SETI) that have yielded no results. We do not accept that our space agencies, like NASA, are ignorant of these encounters with off-world civilizations.
  3. We do not accept arguments suggesting there is no proof of this activity nor do we accept ridicule or stigma when discussing these serious topics.
  4. We are convinced that our planet and civilizations have been engaged by offworld civilizations for millennia. We accept the extraterrestrial hypothesis as valid in many cases and while we consider terrestrial explanations ​for all things, we do not privilege terrestrial hypotheses only.
  5. We know that a variety of governments, militaries, and other organizations have had contact experiences that they have kept veiled in secrecy. We know that there have been recent efforts by government agencies (like the CIA),whistleblowers, and leaks to disclose the offworld presence, but as of yet, no world authority has given confirmation.This must change.
  6. We understand that our offworld visitors hail from numerous star systems and races and that our contact experiences with these others have been both negative and extremely positive. We know that Disclosure of the offworld intelligences engaging our planet and civilization could mean a quantum leap forward for humanity. This is both possible and desirable.
  7. We are aware that there are numerous unacknowledged and suppressed technologies that have been revealed by these interactions with offworld visitors and we know that some (e.g. free energy) could greatly benefit humanity.
  8. We attest that government truth and transparency are critical to the success of any democracy, and we have a right to know the truth about our offworld visitors. We believe that citizen resistance and effort are critical at this time in our evolution and a critical part of consciousness improvements to our species. – http://www.disclosureactivists.org/

The State of Ufology Today

What do you think about the state of Ufology today? Does it meet up to your expectations? Sadly, it falls short for nearly every serious investigator. It falls even shorter for experiencers who wish the topics of discussion to be more focused on real interactions.

What has happened to what once seemed to be a burgeoning field of study for and with folks who’ve had some kind of experience or at least witnessed what has often been termed ‘UFOs’?

Some years ago, in a presentation in England, Bob Dean spoke of the fact that ‘they’ are no longer ‘UFOs’ because we know what they are… visitors in various types of interstellar and perhaps interdimensional craft. Paul Hellyer, retired Canadian Defense Minister, speaks openly about his knowledge from his prior position and current relationships.

Banal Banter

So many today banter about the past; opinions and research that have been so trampled they have lost their appeal to serious folks. You might be one of them. Unfortunately, the attraction to the curious has helped to develop an industry that supports speculators and storytellers as much as real information sharing. In the thirty plus years the author has been involved there have been at least three cycles of activity. Stephen Bassett does his best to keep it real as he continues to lobby for disclosure, but is he involved because it is a lifestyle, passion, or a way to earn a living and travel? Dr. Steven Greer continues to speak about his contact techniques and the familiar message he admits to receiving as well, but is he legit or just playing the crowd?

Each cycle starts with some real information, a new breakthrough or personage that suddenly decides to share their story. Then the attention gets distracted to old information that’s rehashed and then on to some sci-fi encounter that has something to do with a conspiracy. Whether it is a government coverup of interaction with aliens or a secret space program, the process repeats about every 10 to 12 years with new people. We’re due for a new spin. We all oppose deceivers, right?

Money for Nothing

What began in 1991 as the International UFO Congress in Tucson, Arizona has become a business venture. It spawned several others over the years, some doing better than others. They all tend to follow the pattern shared above. The better the marketing and/or story, the more intriguing the conspiracy or mystery, numbers flock and those numbers mean dollars. In loose surveys over the last decade or so, real experiencers and serious folk express the need for discussing the non-human intelligences and communication that reveals a common thread toward learning how to live in harmony with natural law and order, like the universe.

Is there a theme to all the communication including crop circles, experiences of sensory input still needing a language to articulate coherently, telepathic and virtual visitations? There doesn’t seem to be any disagreement with the aforementioned ‘message’ about learning to live together. That is, as people getting along, the entire gamut from planet (its elements) to living creatures with and without ‘consciousness’ or what we express as being sentient. It naturally occurs in the evolution of sentient beings, every planetary civilization capable of star travel has learned it.

Who Goes There?

Believe it or not, there are humans who have learned it as well, nearly every one knows of interdimensional as well as interstellar capabilities. They cut through all the Ufology industry stuff, usually by non-engagement, and look for other ways of more ethically-driven ways to gather. The events around the world today, as off-center as they are, still bring many folks who don’t know where else to find kindred folk. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and maintain anonymity so employment wouldn’t be jeopardized.

More recently there have been great efforts by an organization that was endorsed by Dr. Edgar Mitchell as one of his final acts to continue his work in consciousness studies. Through their surveys, which are anonymous, over 4,000 participants have shared their personal experiences. Now we’re getting somewhere with FREE information. The data from these surveys is available and getting some attention. Rey Hernandez heads up the organization. Perhaps it will give folks encouragement to speak more publicly, somewhat anonymously. Rey certainly isn’t shy.

The general sense in this ‘free’ population is that things are progressing toward a beneficial end. Statistically over time the perception of events even changes toward the beneficial. It seems that as consciousness develops, the perception of events can drastically change as the experiencer progresses. Long-term contact tends to result in a vastly different understanding, congruent with the theme above. Hopefully the Ufology industry will recognize folks with integrity and take a chance on elevating the conversation.

Cosmic Comedy

In other areas, still cyclical and spiraling up the experience peak, Grant Cameron speaks and writes on the patterns of contact and the style and type associated with each ’round’ of the cycle. Is his research authentic and objective or putting a new spin on old information? Richard Dolan has become an expert in the history and he expresses an intellectual curiosity toward an optimistic quest of intentions and potential interspecie work. Is their research authentic and objective or just putting a new spin on old information?

Although it’s talked about religiously in some circles, the general public doesn’t seem to understand there have been those living among us for millennia. Even those who do admit the possibility or even reality, they don’t engage it any further. I find that suspect, or maybe a bit fearful of revealing their worst fears of prejudice toward others. Are we really learning how to get along or just hide our deceptive separative notions better?

It seems that the world continues to spiral out of control in our efforts to control our path. Many individuals are awakening to an understanding of holistic systems that permeate our lives. If consciousness evolves and the thoughtmosphere expands, what is the critical mass that would begin to right the ship, ‘our’ relationship that is. The ability to manage machinery with a mixture of galvanic response, psychokinesis and telepathy is just one example of understanding universal law and order, using built-in features of our very nature. It is currently way out of our ability to be disciplined to that degree. We like to argue too much.

Conspiracy theories always have an argumentative nature. Debates run high amongst those who believe in them, real or imagined. They take away from the more pressing need for transforming our way of doing business and educating our children on planet Earth. They give us a way to consider and discern, seeking the sensation within that reveals their truth or not. I hear that a lot from the grapevine, the contact underground that Dr. Joseph Burkes has engaged for a couple of decades.

More internet radio hosts are exploring the grapevine, giving us more information to analyze and discern. Randy Maugans and Chris Holly have been doing their own thing for a while with Off Planet Radio. Inception Radio Network has also done a lot toward contributing to the effort, but we have to use our discernment still; the loudest mouths still get too much time. I’m sure there many more. I’ve got to go to work now…
