“Awakening is not a matter of intelligence. Many intelligent people are deep in illusion. But rather, awakening happens when one has an insatiable thirst to know the truth.” Author Unknown
Awakening or illusion? How that insatiable thirst dispels the illusion depends on how awake we choose to be and the willingness to suspend or slice away false belief systems. We have to test them first, of course. Recycling memories tends to offer new insights and thoughts for me. Perhaps they’ll be interesting to you as the stream of consciousness flows onto the page. Putting thoughts to writing can be so cathartic.
What is truth? We refer to it, but do we ever really define it so that we can agree on it? I mean, truth would be ubiquitous and undeniable, right? I suppose, in a way, that might be a clear explanation of how we work, how we relate to each other, how we relate to the world or worlds we may perceive? Perhaps a combination of a mathematical and psycho-spiritual model that would explain the intelligence at work throughout? What is awakening related to this?
What would it do if we knew it? How would our lives look if we not only knew it, but lived it? Would you say that within this insatiable thirst there is a new living awareness that emerges? What is that like? Does it make sense? Is that sense being made common?
This emerging awareness seems completely subjective in the discovery process. Attempts to articulate a multi-dimensional funnel of data into linear ears and eyes has been going on for millennia. Alas, we still tend to argue about the details and miss the overarching message(s). Can the insatiable curiosity in many cause an upwising in the world? Big T, little t, it’s ultimately the same, so what is your concept of truth?
Well, that got a little deeper than intended. On a more practical note, it sure seems that this theme runs across a plethora of playing fields in our present time. The information age and data available for searching is causing an evolution in intelligence across the world. It would seem only logical that the ability to discern would also reach new levels in our lives.
Awakening – Illusion
Once we find this ‘whatever we’re looking for’ truth, the mere acquisition of it might make it suspicious at first. It’s natural. We’re always confused by the unknown suddenly becoming known, which it would seem is how the process of discovering truth works. Applying that to the field of Ufology is no small task. It’s hard to cut through the din.
There is a lot of concern voiced by many regarding the ‘experts’ in the field and the way in which they are promoted, or not as the case may be. There are numerous questions flying around social media platforms in the hundreds of groups that are aligned under the Ufology banner. They range from the absurd to the transformational in scope.
It’s fairly easy to spot the absurd or pejorative and dismiss them as just uninformed or experientially bereft. Then there are those who have great stories and no real proof, yet are followed by thousands or possibly millions across the web. Let us not forget the researchers who have done a great job at collecting and sharing information, though they tend to speculate about potentials based on incomplete data; experiencers are left out of the loop.
It’s been less than a decade since experiencers, en masse, have started sharing their stories through blogs, groups, pages, podcasts and web chats. Less than 20 years ago when the curator first dove into the web, there were extremely small numbers of folks willing to expose themselves to scrutiny. Spirit Web was big then, a chat platform with multiple rooms and topics. Today, the scene is prolific with thousands of opportunities to engage on hundreds of platforms.
The Aerial Phenomena Research Organization started in Sturgeon Bay, WI in 1952 and moved to Tucson, AZ in 1960. The National UFO Conference began in 1963 in Hollywood, of course. MUFON, Inc. was originally established as the Midwest UFO Network on 31 May 1969, in Quincy, Illinois. The conference craze began emerging in the early 1990s with the first International UFO Congress in Tucson, then Tim Beckley’s New Age and Alien Agenda conferences. The Prophets Conferences were big in the mid to late-90s, the curator managed their Phoenix event in 1997. Whole Life Expos began around the same time, too. An ex-board member of WLE started Contact in the Desert, another profitable venture, in 2013.
Awakening the Fray
Now there are dozens of Ufology-focused events around the world, most of which can be found on our website as we become aware of them. It is a niche market for sure, yet it has its celebrities and movie stars, just like the old days. Just how those celebrities are made is another perplexing question as there are many agendas spiraling within the field; some glaring and some a little less detectable at first. There are those who genuinely admit they don’t know much, though they have managed to gather enough data and some objective views on the subjective experiences of others.
We tend to listen and nod our heads to the experts of pretty much any field because we rarely understand what they are actually saying, especially the Ph.D.s, yet we don’t want to appear stupid to our peers by asking questions. Those who do have the experience and/or intelligence to ask questions are generally felt to be critical instead of sincere. Intelligent questions get glossed over or unanswered and tend to throw up those BS meter flags, or at least they should.
We certainly do not have all the answers, and maybe not even the questions yet. We still need that insatiable thirst for truth. We’ve had a materialist quest for truth with evidence, exotic metals, photos, ship remnants; material proof of some kind. We have only asked cursory questions regarding the occupants of the crafts we either have seen or trust that are there. The questions cannot be asked because the experiencers have not been let into the game.
Like any process and reflective of the field in general, there are some pretty strange tales and loud mouths in the experiencer groups, too. There are some consistencies, though, however small, that might be a good place to start asking questions. The quest for truth, at any level, is humbling beyond imagination. The small voices who seem genuine and sincere may hold some deeper truths about our relationship with the other planetary civilizations who frequent here.
Humans are resilient, resourceful and even reverent toward challenges in chaos and turmoil. We show as a human race that we can unify to overcome them and restore order. We do it all the time, yet somehow get distracted when it comes to the onslaught of information, personalities and pundits who manage the gate. There are some new developments within the field that are leaning toward incorporating experiencer data and philosophies on contact.
The key for the expansion and potential unification of this field is in collaboration with intention to keep the attention on asking better questions. Like Einstein claims, we cannot answer the questions with our own thinking, yet it is our option to be open to new thinking that allows the flow of information. Many have events where they speak things they did not understand prior to speaking about them in that moment. There is a conduit for information flow within us.
What does that have to do with the insatiable thirst for truth? That flow is what quenches the thirst. It’s like the elixir that resonates throughout our body/mind/spirit/soul to the degree of which we feel ‘electric’ or ‘energized’ or even ‘on fire’ with this discovery. That is the awakening of the conduit within us. It brings humility, not arrogance; compassion, not surreptitiousness. As curator and partial purveyor of profundities, we can all work together to restore order, the most profound truth of all.
Many already know of the Kardashev scale, where the position of a civilization is determined by its access and use of energy, from global to solar system to galaxy. I suspect it goes further, but for now let’s just consider what the corresponding intelligence and overall consciousness might be that is associated with the ability of the planetary civilization.
We, as humans, tend to see things from very limited perspective because we simply cannot comprehend that kind of advanced consciousness. We often perceive it as god-like, yet it still cannot compare to the intelligence that drives the bus. Could it also have something to do with frequency and our understanding of it? Science has proven everything is energy and has an inherent frequency, so it stands to reason we need to explore further.
In consideration of such, how might a Type III civilization communicate with a planetary civilization like ours which is likely to be around a .5 to .7 at present. Taking for granted that interstellar travel and understanding of universal laws has also developed in a Type III, would they see us as needing help in our challenges with planetary resource management and climate changes? Would they try to communicate in helpful ways? How?
We’re aware that free or ‘zero point’ energy exists but are unable to produce any technology capable of utilizing the principles necessary to access Earth’s energy to that degree, yet. There is much discussion about it and perhaps soon we’ll discover a way to actualize its potential and at least put a dent in the pollution our current energy production creates. As long as the competitive environment exists, it might be a while before we learn how to share.
Since childhood I’ve had moments, non-linear and non-local, inspiring an intense desire to understand the nature of how they happened and why. It’s led to the same curiosity toward humanity and our evolution. The number, frequency and intensity of events caused some serious challenges; a juxtaposition of realities that facilitated the development of a unique observational quality and capacity for questions of self and others as I grew up. When The Celestine Prophecy came out I felt a nice corroboration with what I knew already.
It was apparent that I could not have open conversations to explore the experiences in my youth and for most of my adult life. Either I couldn’t articulate things simply enough, my audience just wasn’t able to listen or concerned parental units were afraid of encouraging me. So I began a kind of ongoing compare and contrast essay in my head. If/then inquiries developed from there, often helped by an invisible companion who sounded like a wise elder in my head. I think we all have that voice, I’m just not afraid to admit it.
Much later I found the three main questions that made people most curious. Who is God? Is there life after death? Are we alone in the universe? I explored them, too, and in so doing my life experiences provided the answers, though they rarely matched with popular beliefs. I certainly didn’t expect them, yet I was set up from birth to become curious. I took the bait; hook, line and sinker. It led down an immense and intense rabbit hole.
Leaping from our framework of understanding, limited as it is, into considering the framework of understanding that a Type III civilization would have truly stretches the mind and no-doubt engages what we would consider science fiction now.
Experience Beyond the Norm
Prompted by the knowledge that I was adopted, I had an insatiable curiosity about extended family beyond the physical; a child’s curiosity about mother and father God and beyond. I became aware of a companion, an inner voice of an adult male, that I could converse. In the mid-60s answers to the quest turned into nightly trips to orange cigar-shaped clouds, though never able to remember inside. I had this sense of family that I couldn’t wait to experience again. The experiences would always start with a high-pitched tone, a frequency in my head that seemed to tune me in, sometimes producing OBEs as well.
During my first year in college, technically a 6th quarter sophomore as a result of the CLEP tests, I continued my quest to know truth. I’d practiced meditation, had multiple OBEs and taken a few trips by then. The internal question continued, the voice more instructional and during an afternoon meditation it asked if I was willing to die for what I believed in. It was synchronistic, of course, as I had a protracted prayer request a week before, to know truth and willing to die for it if necessary.
I chose ‘cosmic consciousness’ and simply ‘let go’ of the physical at a perfectly timed moment, which led to and OBE and finding myself in the ‘light’ described by Sanskrit as samadhi, a state of oneness and complete absorption beyond the mind-self. I went beyond that as well, to a state of being surrounded by points of light, something alluded to in the Bush era yet quite different in reality and has no lexicon for demarcation. The awareness of this frequency pervaded the experience, yet added to it instead of distracting my attention.
Coming back into this world, even though I was only gone for a couple of minutes, was like entering my body/mind for the first time. It was almost foreign at first, yet delicious as I felt the sensation of the intimate complexity of my body again. The experience was so intense that I couldn’t keep it to myself and yet was completely misunderstood in trying to articulate it to others afterward.
Looking back it is probably like an intelligence or being from a Type III civilization attempting to communicate with a Type I or less, having no way for the lesser to cognate. It would seem that a Type III civilization, thousands or millions of years ahead of us, would naturally want to communicate with lesser worlds. This is intrinsic among life forms of any strain.
Trials and Tribulations
In spite of the trials and tribulations the journey afterward brought, I was still curious about ‘God’ and how things worked in the span of consciousness I had experienced, from form to formless and back again. I read every spiritual text I could get my hands on for over a decade. I got married and began raising a family with four children until I couldn’t. It was like a timed release, a divorce I didn’t want from a destructive relationship no one deserved. I found myself post-divorce and deeply conflicted at thirty not-so-onederful.
I prayed and searched for self again, only this time real people showed up. I was drawn to a group who practiced the Awareness techniques developed by William Swygard in the 1950s. They also followed the teachings of Ray Standford as members of the Association for the Unfoldment in Man. I moved into the house that was their regular meeting place.
The Swygard techniques, possibly the first remote-viewing procedures, were facilitated processes that allowed an experiencer to move about inner planes and explore spirit guides, chakras and Akashic records (Multi-Level) and, in another, traverse 9 planes of consciousness while pausing in each for reflection and understanding (Multi-plane); in essence non-linear and non-local experiential events. I was already prone to easy exits, so the techniques enabled me to explore easily and report back. The job of the facilitator was not just to guide the experience; they recorded the responses to questions along the way.
The experiencer was always in charge of their direction, though, unlike hypnotic suggestions that I found present in many of the regressionists or abduction-related hypnotherapists that I met later, embedded in the Ufology field and not necessarily helpful to it. The absence of fear in the facilitations using the Swygard method was profound. A decade and a half later I created a digital version of the Multi-plane that wasn’t as personal, yet offered a wider experiential playing field for others.
The events prepared me for another spontaneous event, an answer to questions about God and the Trinity, not necessarily from a Christian perspective either. In preparing for a Multi-level, I was invited to join an entity I met in college that is what one might call a ‘guide’ or ‘ally’ in Castaneda’s world. He escorted me across the universe in what seemed like a kind of wormhole, conversing about my ‘progress’ as we went, and arrived at a display that instantly filled me with awe – three huge white gold-tinged spheres surrounded by perhaps a dozen much smaller bright green spheres.
When I went to see Contact for the first time nearly a decade later I wept during the scene where Ellie went through the wormhole and arrived at the peripheral view of a magnificent starscape. The display seemed like someone had re-created my own experience and put it on the screen for others to share if they could. It was so impactful I didn’t have the desire to talk for hours afterward. I had the same feeling after my only experience of channeling during the same period of engaging Swygard’s work. The sense of awe made me speechless afterward.
It wasn’t just the scene of the spheres that gave me pause. There was another voice, like several as one, that seemed to come from the spheres in answer to my question about God. “We are not only your forefathers, we are also the forefathers of your solar system.” So where does one put that in the collection and referencing of files? What it did was give me more questions, the primary being, ‘if this is the macro, what is the micro?’ I still didn’t comprehend ‘what’ the spheres were, though I knew they were the Creators as we know them.
If this experience was available to me as a silly human with questions, what might a Type III know about the structure of creation, the intelligence that permeates it and the capacity to interact?
Frequency of Information
Several years later, in between viewings of the newly released ‘What the Bleep,’ and a discussion with William Arntz, it occurred to me that it must be the electron, proton and neutron. The ‘space’ is where the consciousness or intelligence that manages manifestation resides. I realized nearly two decades earlier that the 666 was the carbon atom, the science behind the number of knowledge and wisdom, the number of man.
The bridge between science and spirituality was making sense yet I couldn’t even begin to grok the equations that would define it mathematically, though I knew they had to be developed or already exist somewhere. Like the primer in Contact, there had to be something that explained the experience in mathematical and/or scientific terms. In the background in every instance was this frequency, subtle and discrete, yet it was there. I think in some respects it also appears as a cognitive relationship; conversations that matter in our head.
The frequency was perplexing, though. Although it vacillated to some degree, it was always present in the experiences and, the more I was able to listen it seemed to always be there in the background. Sometimes it would get louder for a moment, be in one ear or the other more prominently. The standard response was that it was Tinnitus, though no medical tests were able to prove it. It became a constant companion when I was young and is still with me today. Does focused listening promote or provoke experiences?
Enter the extended communication and events with non-human intelligence and the appearance of various forms we now call greys, insectoids, mantids and reptilians along with some humanoid types. I didn’t put any star-system references to them, nor did I ask. It didn’t seem necessary to know. The frequency, though, was much more intense. I hadn’t made the connection with the Solfeggio frequencies yet, but I did notice subtle differences with each race.
I was visited multiple times over a several year period in the early 90s, one rather strange that was a little embarrassing, yet all seeming to know me beyond any circumstantial events, like we’d been in communication for some time. Each had something to offer to tie-in the previous knowledge I’d gained from childhood through the Swygard period in the summer of 1989, as well as further initiations into what was being referred to as the Ashtar Command. A startling event came a decade later.
The initiations and interactions were nearly too much to take in and still have some functionality in the world, as in holding a job and paying bills. I managed to do it though, as well as produce and host a television show to explore the inner promptings of others and how they dealt with overcoming fears in their personal lives and professional careers. I interviewed over 200, from contactees to city managers to ethnic leaders and university provosts.
These conversations provided a good anchor to explore the dynamics of what had been shared through the previous encounters, from college to the present at that time. I’d always been more alert with synchronistic events, yet what I noticed was events and meeting people began to ‘just happen’ on a more regular basis, apparently as a result of my contemplation and questions toward integrating the understanding I’d been given in pragmatic ways. Giving a glimpse of how people worked through various trials and tribulations to our audience might help them feel like they aren’t alone in the plights.
I was led to various people during this period as well and was instrumental in organizing events that included metaphysical as well as extraterrestrial perspectives and had from 150 to over 5,000 patrons, earning a MBA and Secondary Teaching certification as well. I had a conversation with Dr. Edgar Mitchell during one of them, sharing our interest in consciousness, frequency and contact with intelligent beings beyond our scope of understanding. He shared the understanding that frequency, what was in the silence within, had much to do with advanced intelligence. He launched the Institute for Noetic Sciences as one of the results of his trip.
Edgar told me that when the LEM was descending toward the surface of the moon there were silver metallic cylinders that spiraled around them for at least part of the journey down. He couldn’t determine exactly how big they were. He estimated a meter across and several meters long, yet he could not determine whether they were piloted or remotely controlled. What he did know is that these objects came off the surface of the moon. He couldn’t speak about them, for breach of contract, and had me promise not to say anything until after his death.
I attended many events, had conversations with authors, ‘experts’ and patrons. What I observed with rare exception was a fascination with sensationalism, conspiracy theories and cover-ups that were far from the reality I had been experiencing. Conversations with presenters seemed strained when I asked questions about direct-experience or understanding garnered regarding anything to do with consciousness and/or the engagement of other races toward some beneficial end. None seemed to want to talk about inner experiences, let alone the frequency many experiencers reported. Perhaps it just wasn’t something others experienced.
Then things got really intense for a couple of years, a more public engagement of Ufology to the extent of accepting a leadership role during a conference in Camp Verde, Arizona. My life was turned upside down, or right side up depending on how you look at it. I thought I was prepared, yet a couple of months later I had a week-long symposium onboard a ship and was emceeing the entire thing. I built my first website with articles and information from scouring the web, including all the resources I could find at the time and soon was getting over 25,000 visits a month. Then I got disillusioned with people and process and took it down, redesigned it and moved forward.
I got involved with other passions for a while. I played drums for a few outcasts and social misfits, taught high school, ran the electronic scoring system for fund-raising go-cart races around the country on weekends. I went from public to charter high schools and earned a Master of Arts in Organizational Management in which I wrote a business plan for a peer-community school/village. Then I began facilitating pre-construction partnering workshops, earned a transformational life coaching certification, traveled the country with theater groups and a couple of musical legends, worked for a performing arts center and eventually took over a local UFO Meetup group in 2008 (now defunct).
Frequency within UFOlogy
In 2010, the International UFO Congress moved from Laughlin, Nevada to Fountain Hills, Arizona and I got a few members of our Meetup group to share a vendor table. I’d published a few books by then, too. The following May I had another visitation, only it was different this time. I was awakened by some familiar folks, tall greys I’d known for decade and a half. They showed up, announced I was getting an ‘upgrade’ and proceeded during our brief conversation. I was actually thrilled to feel and hear them again. The ‘upgrade’ felt like something was installed in the back of my head. The sensation was rather intense, but certainly not painful in any respect.
The following year, during the IUFOC, one of our group told me she was shown/told of a device that apparently plugged me into the cosmic computer that was in the back of my head. I hadn’t shared my ‘installation’ experience with anyone except the woman I was living with at the time… no one. It was interesting for me as back in 2000 I had a conversation with Dan Winter, where without provocation he shared with me that he believed ASHTAR was the acronym for the cosmic computer. Go figure…
I continued with the IUFOC for a few years, met the folks at a business expowho designed a digital wire-frame template for curating RSS feeds on virtually any topic. We soon created UfologyPRSS by early 2013 and launched it at the IUFOC that year. The owner of the company had an interest in UFOs so the timing was perfect, yet again. I also did an interview in the foothills of the Superstition Mountains the same month in the backyard of Cynthia Crawford, the et sculptor (RIP). At time the frequency was almost distracting.
The interview in the desert was a public leap into the rabbit hole, a transparency in conversation I hadn’t been able to experience to date. I have to give credit to Adam Abraham for being centered, open and asking the right questions without prejudice of any kind. I exposed myself completely, as transparent and vulnerable as I’ve ever been, yet felt comfortable with Adam and the surroundings in doing so. I noticed the fluctuation of the frequency during it, felt an openness of information flow and yet completely conscious of participant, observer and source.
Over the next few years, communication of intention and supporting information regarding the evolution of our planetary civilization became more prevalent in all my ‘contact’ events. It had been obvious that our leadership, around the world, had been steering us toward destruction and needed some serious redirection. I’m just one guy, so how could that possibly work? I was reminded of the thoughtmosphere, the points of light and the volunteers who’ve come to serve.
I noticed a shift in the kinds of movies that were addressing the extraterrestrial element. They went from the standard Hollywood model of fear-based non-sense, like they’d done with Travis Walton’s story, to something more poignant. Film makers were actually looking at the non-human higher intelligence and helpful qualities beyond our fear-based responses to some perceived alien threat. At the same time, the conversations in Ufology began to consider a more benevolent side of the paradoxical equation they’d been running for decades.
Consciousness, the intimate connection with everything, began appearing in open discussions. People began talking about hearing frequencies that accompanied events and the notion that there really is no threat from space. Along the way I created several websites to demonstrate alternatives and share with others who felt connected to the same ideals. These included my original website remodeled, Mothership Cafe, Planetary Citizens,Independence Arizona and UfologyPRSS.
Back to the frequency, not just the scheduling of events, but the actual frequency that many are reporting being able to hear either just prior to or during contact events. What is it all about? How does it fit in with experiencer explorations into realms we barely know anything about, except the references in some ancient spiritual texts? Could giving it more attention enhance our ability to explore knowledge and understanding of this cosmic order we’re discovering?
Science of Frequency
Let’s go to the science side of things. The electromagnetic spectrum covers a wide range of frequencies, waves that may become particles in the awareness of observation, that spans creation. We have brain waves that are within this spectrum, demarcated into ranges of consciousness from waking to deep trance. We can measure them, but we don’t really have the ability to hear them in our ‘normal’ range of perception for the most part.
Some time ago, in the late 80s, I was introduced to the Shabda as the vibration of all things, like the combination of spiritual and material substances on Earth, also known as the ‘sound current.’ Since that time I’ve notice more explanations of it, yet it is essentially the same, only expanded to the audible stream of energy, emanating from the center of creation. It doesn’t take a great leap to connect the electromagnetic spectrum to this audible energy. It’s a frequency.
Within that frequency, when one can focus attention, are many realms that open to experiential moments. I can’t say that I’ve consistently visited them, though in what appears to be serendipitous and synchronistic moments, I’ve had access. Sometimes for fleeting moments and sometimes for extended periods. I mention the ability I believe we all have to enter those realms in a conversation with Dr. Mishlove, where we discuss a ‘new world order’ that is basically an acknowledgement and alignment with these ‘harmonic’ frequencies that permeate our reality.
Something within us connects us to everything else, though we may not understand it or, more appropriately, be able to utilize it to evolve into a greater experience of being. The evidence of the possibility to do so is contained in every spiritual path, yet there has been no science that brings the hemispheres of the brain together to work as one. The analytical and creative have essentially been at odds for centuries if not millennia. How might we bridge them?
Tom Campbell, who began with Bob Monroe in exploring OBEs to develop both material and practice methods for adventures, states that his work has been an effort to explain the right-brained worlds to left-brain thinkers. Could the corpus collasum, the membrane between the two, be like the center line of the Tao in defining a permeable boundary between the two? In considering the primer from Contact and how it brought a two-dimensional image that made no sense into a three-dimensional view that allowed the building of the machine, also contained in a frequency that was deciphered with math, is there something we’re missing with the Tao?
This may be a stretch for many, to consider a three-dimensional model of the Tao and what it might reveal. We know that energy pulses through our neurocircuitry to convey messages. Light pulses also travel the glass tubes to deliver data packets across the web. If we look at the Tao, the yin/yang symbol, can we envision the pulse of light traveling the strands of DNA in the double-helix, one side light the other dark and reversing as part of a data delivery system deeply embedded in our bodies as a mechanism for consciousness to emerge and align us with a higher order?
Speaking of DNA and hydrogen, there is biology and science that bring the two together in a most elegant way as well. We already know that our sun is comprised of 75% hydrogen. It supplies us with energy for sustenance on so many levels. Harnessing the energy completely, including our solar system, puts us in the Type II Civilization ranking. Let’s look internally.
The hydrogen atom is the bonding agent for the helix of DNA. The complementary base pairs of guanine with cytosine and adenine with thymine connect to one another using hydrogen bonds. These hydrogen bonds between complementary nucleotides are what keeps the two strands of a DNA helix together. Fascinating, huh? Hydrogen atoms, like fractals, are everywhere. Let’s dive a little deeper.
Frequency of Hydrogen et al
The frequency of hydrogen is roughly 1420 MHz and sounds like radio static. It’s interesting to note that the voice of Vrillion, a radio transmission in 1977 that interrupted a British newscast, has a static within it that is consistent throughout the broadcast. I don’t know that any analysis has been done on the static, yet the message from the Ashtar Command has mixed reviews. The same message, essentially, was contained as binary code in a crop circle in August of 2002, “Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain but still time. Believe. There is good out there. We oppose deception.”
More recently, as a result of reconnecting with a television show host who inspired me as I was doing One World in the early 90s, I was introduced to a fascinating model of reality called the Triadic Dimensional Distinction Vortical Paradigm, TDVP for short. Developed by Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close the mathematical model presents the concept of consciousness, space and time being tethered across a 9 dimensional framework. Reality involves a unified wholeness of the infinite and finite with the infinite pervading the finite experience of content and extent in the Space, Time and “Consciousness” Substrates. This finite-infinite reality is relative to all dimensional-distinction factors, and experienced subjectively (by individual units).
A recent movie titled simply, UFO, and stars one of our favorites from the X-Files, Gillian Anderson, is a story about a sighting and the discovery of a frequency contained in static in the 1420 MHz range that is recorded by the tower at Cincinnati airport. A young college student, a gifted mathematician, discovers it contains an elegant display of mathematical precision that has relevance in current applications of known equations and formulas used to explore communication and locations in space. These equations revealed things like the frequency of the basic hydrogen atom, the most prevalent atom in the universe. It also introduces the Fine-Structure Constant, denoted by α, which might have some relevance in referencing spiritual texts as well.
As I was writing this it occurred to me that the phrase, “I am the Alpha and Omega,” might have some scientific significance, energy and matter within us all. The anthropic principle is a controversial argument of why the fine-structure constant has the value it does: stable matter, and therefore life and intelligent beings, could not exist if its value were much different. The symbol Ω has applications throughout mathematics and physics in surprising relationships. Could it be that the phrase actually integrates energy and matter instead of alluding to some personage in Revelations? Could it possibly mean we are all able to access this awareness or knowledge?
With all that in mind, the intention is to create a flow, a stream of consciousness that assists in investigating the current presentation of information across a wide-spectrum of experiencer perturbations, questions that no doubt are surfacing in the consideration of a new living awareness that is permeating the consciousness of many today. We do have to think differently and pull ourselves out of the deceptive and divisive notions of traditional fear-based human perspectives.
We seek flow; the unimpeded data transfer and development of a new kind of planetary civilization that allows us earthlings the ability to join a greater universal experience. It is my opinion that as we increase the energy of what we call love toward each other, even focusing on and intentionally sharing the ‘frequency’ from within, our world will change for the better rapidly. As it is, we don’t really know if we have time, yet time is all we have. Let’s use it wisely.
If you liked this article, you’ll love the material in this book: In addition to this article is a supplementary interview with Michio Kaku by Jaime Maussan at the World UFO Congress in Barcelona, Spain in early September, 2019. Michio speaks to the magnitude of Type III civilizations and what they might be like.
How do we ‘vet’ the information and people providing it so that the quality is there; so that sense is made common?
It would seem that a consistent method for discerning or discovering truth, even if relative, would be available to the intentional seeker. Of course there are varying degrees of the depth of the quest for truth, from cursory to quantum, yet consistency is key. If we accept that we have built-in bullshit meters, then we can at least begin to discover them within our awareness.
What kind of tell-tale signs does ‘truth’ have in this, or any, environment? We pay too much attention to paper and not people, imho. People will show themselves to those who know how to look. When they do, believe them. Not necessarily what they say, but who they are and how they show up authentically. You don’t have to be an expert at micro-expressions. Truth has a ring to it, literally, though it’s an internal ring.
Perhaps truth, vibrationally speaking, is like a covalent bond where electrons are shared in a kind of quantum entanglement. The resonance of truth occurs in the receiver as well as the transmitter whether person, place or thing. Our bodies are both, so it would make sense that the reciprocal resonance is at least felt if not understood. We aren’t accustomed to relying on feelings or sensations, though. That’s where things get a little messy for a time while we explore and practice honing our skills.
There are certain characteristics we can count on, some external tests we can perform initially as we deploy our discernment tools. Until the inner tools are developed, the outer ones are most helpful as one is able to observe without attachment. Like the progress toward self-awareness, we must observe our intentions and distractions. Here’s some considerations from the works of Brent Cunningham on using the external… makes sense common.
POPULAR REASONS WHY PEOPLE BELIEVE Before we take a look at what I think are the three essential tests for evaluating any truth-claims, let’s briefly look at some popular, but less than stellar reasons often used by people to test whether or not something is true—the claim and then a response:
1. Instinct — “It seems true to me.” To this statement we must simply ask . . . . . . Why? What is guiding one’s instinctual ability to judge between competing truth-claims? 2. Feelings — “I like the feeling I get.” or “It feels right.” . . . Can feelings be mistaken? 3. Wish fulfillment — “The God that I (want to) believe in would never send someone to hell.” . . . Maybe not, but the God one wants to believe in may not be the God who actually exists. We can never determine objective truth simply by what we want to be true. 4. Custom — “This is the way I / my family / my culture has always been.” . . . Can they be mistaken? What if one came from a Nazi background? 5. Popularity contest — “Well, ‘everyone’ believes it.” . . . Again, can ‘everyone’ be wrong? Counting noses is never a good means of determining truth. 6. Pragmatism — “It works for me, therefore it must be true.” . . . However, almost anything can ‘work’ for a time. Truth works overall. For instance, a belief may ‘work’ at ridding oneself of guilt by denying it rather than absolving it. 7. Significance — “It gives my life meaning.” . . . Is the meaning simply the result of wish-fulfillment or is it connected with reality?
Obviously, all of the above reasons for believing something to be true seem deficient and not the best tests to determine whether or not a truth-claim is really true (although, #s 6 & 7 do seem to be better candidates that #s 1-5). Nevertheless, I think there are three criterion for testing truth-claims which, when used together, offer us the best chances of determining true beliefs. Here they are.
1. Internal Coherence — This is a test for rational consistency in ufology information. This asks if a belief makes sense? We need to determine whether beliefs are rationally consistent within themselves and in relation to others beliefs of one’s larger worldview. Some beliefs are known to be self-referentially inconsistent, or self-defeating. An example might be the belief that all “knowledge” is scientific knowledge. This is obviously self-defeating because the belief itself is not a scientific statement. Therefore, the belief dies by its own standard for knowledge.
Another way a belief can fail this test is when two beliefs are in contradiction with each other, meaning that at least one of the beliefs must be false. So, we must ask if the beliefs hold together? For example, if a person is a Naturalist (believing that human life is accidental, random, and without ultimate purpose), he cannot then introduce the belief that we have an objective moral obligation to treat another person justly or with kindness.
2. External Correspondence — This test asks if a belief fits the facts of reality in ufology information. Does it correspond to the real world? Proposed truth-claims must have explanatory power, or the ability to give account for our experience of the world (whether it be history, science, psychology, human nature, etc.). For instance, a worldview can be tested by its ability to explain cosmological questions like the origin of the universe; anthropological questions like the existence of minds and free will; moral questions like the existence of evil and our experience with guilt.
Further, the explanatory power of truth-claims should (a) be comprehensive in scope—able to explain more or better than alternative theories; (b) have predictive power—suggesting new evidence and problems; (c) have precision—accounting for more details; (d) be illuminating—integrating otherwise unrelated data; (e) avoid ad hoc hypotheses—functioning only to explain away counter-evidence; (f) be simple—not needlessly multiplying the basic concepts, assumptions, and principles of an explanation.
3. Functional Adequacy — This tests the livability of a truth-claim as a belief in ufology information. Is it a viable belief “on the street”? Does it work in real life? Some views sound good on paper, but are proven false in the laboratory of life. Consider an eastern guru who asserts that the physical world is an illusion, yet he still looks both ways before crossing the street. A person cannot live out such an illusory belief of the world for very long (or he’ll be hit by a bus before long!). Even more than that, a belief system must integrate one’s life. It must incorporate and meet the deepest human needs.
SUMMARY In evaluating the truth or falsity of propositions/truth-claims/beliefs of ufology information, we must be sure to always look for three things: internal coherence (the logical), external correspondence (the factual), and functional adequacy (the livable). For a belief to be true it must be meaningful, it must line up with the real world, and it must not only help us survive in daily life, but allow us to flourish. Consequently, these are also the three areas in which our thinking can and does go wrong: logic, facts, and values.
In the field of Ufology there is so much information that has no solid proof, no tangible substance, other than the ability to string what little facts we have into some kind of logical presentation. We all wish this was different, yet beyond the little credible and tangible material we have, much is still in the subjective realms of experiencers who are often bereft of the cognitive skills to manage, let alone interpret, their ‘contact’ events.
Truth is discoverable, of course, yet we have to run it through all the tests for coherence, correspondence and adequacy. It has a resonance to it that meets all those standards, a measurable sensation within our array of receptors. Well-developed receptors have already been categorized and labeled as the ‘clair-alls’* of extra-sensory perception. We all have them but few actually use them, probably because of the ‘I want to believe’ factor within Ufology.
Consciousness – being awake and aware of our surroundings, not just sentience, is the prevailing discovery of the time. Consciousness in the sense of a connected awareness and experience of a greater theme in our lives, an experiential reality that bridges quantum (discrete) with the gross (whole). The resonance of both cohesion and coherence is what we can sense with the finer senses within our awareness. It is the challenge of accessing and practicing these senses that is our current challenge.
The constructs of reality also have significance, even if we don’t understand the laws or principles involved. For instance, The Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm is a metaparadigmatic model developed equally by Drs. Vernon Neppe and Edward Close. In essence, it demonstrates that consciousness, space and time are tethered together across 9 dimensions.
It would seem there is a singular or individuated consciousness that is distributed across dimensions yet capable of interacting with and observing each. The following video shares some important information relating to the topic, the process of integrating experiences and the options for consideration. It is an excerpt from an interview with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove on New Thinking Allowed.
Clair is a word describing types of clear sensitivity corresponding to our physical and intuitive senses. Clair begins words that name our intuitive abilities. The following are definitions of the various Clair Senses:
CLAIRCOGNIZANCE – INTUITIVE KNOWLEDGE – Clear knowledge is when a person has psychic knowledge without any physical explanation or reason. Claircognizance includes precognition and retro cognition – knowledge of the future and knowledge of the past. There are no restrictions as to what may be known with clear knowledge.
CLAIRVOYANCE – INTUITIVE VISION – The ability to see objects, actions, or events distant from the present without the use of eyes is called clairvoyance. It transcends time and space and may be a result of what is seen through the third eye (sometimes referred to as our mind’s eye) or the fourth eye.
CLAIRAUDIENCE – INTUITIVE AUDIO or HEARING – This is the ability to perceive sounds or words and extrasensory noise from sources broadcasting from the spiritual or ethereal realm. These tones exist beyond the reach of rational human experience and beyond the limitations of ordinary space and time. For example:
– sounds made by a person’s body;
– sounds made by living things;
– sounds made by nature;
– sounds made by man-made things;
– sounds made by interactions of the above; and
– ethereal sounds like voices of the dead, specters, or mystic music.
CLAIRSENTIENCE – INTUITIVE KNOWING BY FEELING – This refers to a person’s ability to acquire knowledge by feeling. A person who feels the vibration of other people, animals, and places is clairsentient. There are many degrees of clairsentience, ranging from the perception of thoughts and emotions in others to their illnesses and injuries. This ability differs from clairvoyance because the knowledge comes only from feeling in the body.
Clairsentience includes an individual feeling the physical and emotional pain of land where atrocities have happened; jealousy, insecurity, fear, or displeasure in others; or others’ physical pain.
CLAIRSALIENCE – INTUITIVE SMELL = Clairsalience, also known as clairscent or clairscentency, involves smelling a fragrance or odor of a substance, person, place, or animal not in one’s surroundings. These odors are perceived without the use of the physical nose and beyond the limitations of ordinary time and space.
CLAIRTANGENCY INTUITIVE KNOWING by TOUCHING – Clairtangency is psychometry. The clairtangent handles an object or touches something and in doing so knows information about the object or its owner or its history that was not known beforehand. Clairtangency can also apply to touching a living being.
CLAIRTACTION – INTUITIVE TOUCH – I introduce this label for a “new” unnamed Clair. I chose taction because it is an archaic word defined as “the act of touching or making contact.”
Clairtaction is the ability to sense being touched by a spiritual being or entity and the knowing of information about that spirit. Further, it includes a telekinetic-like ability to extend a touch to both physical and etheric entities in such a way that both the recipient and the psychic have awareness of the feeling. This means that the clairtactient may touch a person who is present or remote without physically touching him or her and the person being touched will, if aware enough, be able to identify where he or she is being touched and the nature of the touch. It also means that the clairtactient can touch something ethereal with both purpose and awareness.
CLAIRGUSTANCE – INTUITIVE TASTE – Clear tasting involves being able to taste something without actually putting it into your mouth. It’s the perfect diet plan. 😉 A person who has clairgustance experiences tastes associated with events or people, memories or sensations often accompanied with clairsalience.
CLAIREMPATHY – INTUITIVE FEELING of EMOTION – Clairempathy is the ability to know people and their energies. A person who has clairempathy psychically experiences the thoughts or attitudes of a person, place, or animal and then feels the associated mental, emotional, physical, and/or spiritual results. The result of this clear empathetic experience may be a very physical response for the psychic in proportion to the psychic’s empathic sensitivity.
CLAIRELOQUENCE – INTUITIVE COMMUNICATING – Claireloquence is a second new Clair. It is the requirement to use precisely the right word or combination of words in order to accomplish a specific objective. Claireloquence connotes that it is the exact meaning of a word that is the result when it may in fact be the performative nature of the word or the exact phonology, or sound system, of the word to encode meaning that is the desired result. I believe that it can be either and both.
CLAIRESSENCE – INTUITIVE EMBODIMENT – Clairessence is a third new Clair I have come to understand and validate. It is the fundamental “Clair of all Clairs.” It is both the easiest and the most difficult to explain, for it is the Clair of Ascension; by the time we fully understand this Clair it will no longer be significant because we will be “it”.
The origin of clairessence is the point of origin of our nature. It is the mathematical and vibrational perfection with which all life was created. It is the ideal we seek to attain in the successful embodiment and integration of all of our senses within our rational and non-rational selves. It is the state we seek to return to – a state without distortion that is more refined, by virtue of experience, than when it was created.
I’ve been involved with this field for several decades openly and a couple more as an early experiencer of high strangeness. It certainly doesn’t make me an authority, yet I do have some perspectives that few seem to garner as experiencers. I have an above average intelligence, last clocked online at around 151 using my opposite hand just to make it interesting and no rum was involved. My adoptive parents told me early tests were higher and they feared that telling me would turn me into an intellectual snob. Perhaps I have in the minds of some.
Lately there has been yet another flurry of details regarding Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs), Unidentified Submerged Objects (USOs) and top secret government intelligence programs that have been studying them. Luis Elizondo recently spilled the beans on an obscure government program he was involved in that was tasked with studying the UFO phenomena, AATIP was its acronym. The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was supposedly led by him. He ‘quit’ the Pentagon because it he was frustrated by the cover-up.
Wow, what a news story that nearly every media outlet picked up on and made Luis an icon in Ufology almost instantly. Was he really involved or, like many, chose to sprinkle some truth in a large lie to get attention? Yes, AATIP existed, and it “did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena,” Pentagon spokesperson Christopher Sherwood was quoted as saying by Keith Kloor, journalist for The Intercept. However, he added: “Mr. Elizondo had no responsibilities with regard to the AATIP program while he worked in OUSDI [the Office of Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence], up until the time he resigned effective 10/4/2017.”
Intelligence or Insanity?
Luis isn’t the first to muddy the waters in Ufology, though. There is a long history of folks who, with no evidence available other than their word, have forged careers out of elaborate story-telling with details that entice the ears and stimulate the minds of the listeners and readers. Jeffrey Mishlove invited me to discuss the topic in an August 2018 interview he titled ‘The Sociology of Ufology.’ We discussed the tragedy within the field and the travails of those who genuinely seek the truth of whatever is known about our visitors from space.
It seems most of the folks who do have a clue are quiet, reserved and unrecognized by those who find the UFO circuit to provide a means of accolades and notoriety. It’s a small pond in comparison to the larger picture, yet the majority of experiencers are faced with few other opportunities to gather and commune with others of like experiences. The phrase made popular by The X Files, ‘I want to believe,’ now included the necessary discernment skills to weed through the BS. How close are we to really knowing the truth?
In the larger sense, what is the truth about these visitors? We now have irrefutable evidence they exist, specifically military videos as well as officials who’ve had first hand experience, rather sightings, of craft that is obviously not of this world. This evidence has been around for decades in the Ufology circles, yet hadn’t reached the public ears and eyes through major media until this year. Still, there has been evidence that has gone relatively unnoticed from years past. It has been right in front of us, available to find, for decades.
Intelligence of the Visitors
But what of those inside the craft? Who are they and what are they doing? Why are they here and what are their intentions? How do we find out about their intelligence? Do we think the government or major media outlets are going to tells us? Heck, they don’t even know from what many gather. So what is missing? Is there an underground movement, like Dr. Joseph Burkes suggests, that is painstakingly sharing information amongst each other to corroborate and distill general discoveries and potential objectives of these visitors?
It seems that methods of communication vary, mostly telepathic and yet include non-linear and non-local metaphysical-types of temporal distortion or even time-dilation. Events that are perceived as being very physical, when viewed through quantum lenses, are evidence of a multi-dimensional reality much like Neppe and Close describe with their TDVP model of consciousness, time and space being tethered. We have one timeline, yet the experience covers multiple dimensions simultaneously.
Do we need advanced degrees in quantum mechanics to understand it all? Some my think so and certainly there is a lot of math involved in explaining things from a scientific perspective, just like Einstein tried to with his theory of relativity. Jung had many dinners with him over nearly a decade and was greatly influenced by Einstein in the development of his papers on psychiatry. Bertrand Russell was also influenced and noted that to think Einstein’s Theory of Relativity has no philosophical impact was folly. Hans Reichenbach felt that human ‘sensations’ were more, that they were intricately connected to something going on in the universe.
Intelligence within Consciousness
Back to the consciousness that is being expanded by the ‘sensations’ of engagement by non-human intelligence. It spans more than just our visitors engagement of terrestrials. These same sensations are akin to the experience of higher realms of consciousness, often accompanied by a sense of vibration that has been described as both excruciating and/or exhilarating, depending on the frame of mind of the experiencer. So there is a choice involved as to ‘how’ to experience this ‘contact’ as the case may be. If it’s startling with a sense of fear involved, it’s excruciating. On the other hand, if it’s startling with a sense of intrigue or fearlessness, it’s often exhilarating.
Is there a path of logic that fits the scenario of their intent or purpose for engaging humanity in any way? If we looked at things from the perspective of an advanced civilization, what might that be? We tend to see things only through human-centric and fearful eyes, a looming threat. If that were the case, we’d be living in a much different world. Ancient civilizations have learned much, but what? If we are fascinated with the inner-workings of matter and ‘spirit,’ could we posit that this is a general path of evolution and development of intelligence? Where would it take us?
The universe has inherent logic, math and science we have only just begun to understand even in process of entropy to negentropy, from chaos to order. Could it be possible that the communication being delivered through human contacts, interpreted in a variety of ways, is steering us toward recognizing the intricate connections we, in our expanded consciousness, have with everything around us? Consider we’re 99% space, even though we seem physical. What permeates the space we all share? How would we best engage it? Is there a path toward understanding it? What might that be?
For decades people have been curious and investigated UFOs in myriad ways. What is the sociology of UFOlogy today? In the late 80s Tim Beckley introduced New Age and Alien Agenda gatherings around the country. The International UFO Congress began in Tucson in 1991 with Ret. Col. Wendelle Stevens, Jim Diletosso and Ken Liljegren’s team as support.
I’ll digress for a moment. My first experiences with non-human intelligence was in 1962, advancing to something different in 1965 which was apparently the ‘normal’ type of contact in the Midwest in the 50s and 60s, the orange cigar-shaped cloud. During that same period, UFOs were apparently shutting down ICBM silos around the globe with exquisite showmanship.
Curious and investigative, I continued my quest to know, not just what, how this kinda stuff happens. I love the high strangeness. What makes it tick? I had a lot of questions, numerous events and some experiences I still wonder about today. I had deep conversations with a lot of folks; experts, researchers and experiencers across the gamut.
I got to know Tim and Wendelle over the years. Jim and I became friends and later he recommended me as manager for The Prophets Conference (1997). It gave me an opportunity to have conversations that are extremely rare, up close and personal without interruption. Some of the folks who were there: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Steven Greer, Jose Arguelles, David Icke, Linda Molten-Howe, Stanton Friedman, Zacharia Sitchen and 2 dozen more. I got to know many prominent folks in the field of UFOlogy many years ago, with friendships still today.
2010 began by assuming responsibility for a UFO discussion group in the Phoenix valley. We met in a community room of a local fire station. Our guest speakers included Claude Swanson, Travis Walton, Alejandro Rojas and more. We also had meditation experiments using music that produced some varied and amazing personal experiences, all of a contact nature. There were about 35 people in the room. Afterward, one elderly woman reported seeing massive ET machinery surrounding the group and ‘working’ on each person.
From 2010 to 2014 I was a vendor at the IUFOC, having moved to Ft. McDowell in Arizona. In 2013 we debuted UFOlogyPRSS.com at the International UFO Congress, with over 100 blogs from around the world in one place, up-to-the-moment material. It rose the bar for UFOlogy-based websites. It was our virtual model of folks getting along even if they had opposing views. We’ve also got a number of authors featured; podcasts and radio shows, too.
Meanwhile, UFOlogy in general seems to be challenged. Experiencers are on one side and the nuts and bolts scientists on the other with conspiratorialists scattered about in each camp. Dr. Mishlove and I take a frank and open look at what the Sociology of UFOlogy is today. Although challenges do exist, there seems to be a call for change. What that will be remains to be seen.
Here’s how Dr. Mishlove framed the interview, “Here he [Zen] speaks as a participant-observer sharing his reflections on the current community of interest centering on UFO phenomena. He describes his disillusionment with a nexus of individuals focusing on the notions of the Ashtar Command and the Galactic Federation. He describes various fears associated with the very idea of alien life forms. However, he suggests that we presently have no actual evidence that there is a reason to be fearful of UFO activity.”
In the ‘contact’ scenarios, experiencers have to deal with seemingly incredulous events and still continue with some kind of ‘normal’ life. Whether individual or family needs, the daily functional activity still needs doing. There is something else going on, though, as shows like this don’t happen if the conversation isn’t necessary, imho.
Our hopes were to address common concerns and explore a little of what else is happening. I was a willing participant in spite of my trepidation. Talking about the Ashtar Command and Galactic Federation, however real and true they may be, is not the kind of talk that garners credibility normally. There’s evidence they do exist dating back to 1952 with George Van Tassel.
Although we discussed the potential confusion with deities, there is still more confusion around the topic. George Van Tassel met Robert Short, who took on the ‘Ashtar Command’ label, used it for contrary purposes and wasn’t connected to the ‘source’ like George. I met Bob in the late 1980s and didn’t feel he had a good connection, if any, talking nonsense about conspiracy theories interwoven with an Ashtar Command that would somehow take action against the cabal. The latter was infectious and unfortunately obfuscates the truth still, imho.
Jeffrey made a delicate subject easy to discuss. We had a nice mind flight. Perhaps you’ll consider sharing this article and video.
My wife asked me to include this interview from January of 2013. She said it spoke to her in ways nothing else had. She’s Russian-born and trained pianist as well as a 3HO Kundalini Yoga teacher. She has a compelling argument…
