CONTACT NETWORK HISTORY PROJECT

A Close Encounter of the Third Kind with Love.

Joseph Burkes MD 2015

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

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

“COMING OUT” OF THE UFO CLOSET

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

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

WORKING THE CROWD

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

A CLOSE ENCOUNTER OF THE THIRD KIND WITH LOVE

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

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

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

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

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

Compatible History

and response from the curator….

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

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

International Association for Near Death Studies

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

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

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

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

Keep up the great work, Joe!

Here’s the video if anyone is interested…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlvkmP3eZkE

Dr. Burkes and I had a great conversation a couple of months ago on Inception Radio, too… https://youtu.be/ozQ-HH4jXGU

What IS all this Ashtar Command, Galactic Federation of Light and Confederation of Planets stuff about?

What IS all this Ashtar Command, Galactic Federation of Light and Confederation of Planets stuff about?

Some embrace it, some fear it, some welcome it as a natural progression of consciousness, some believe there is nothing beyond this world and some could care less, thinking it is all delusional manifestations. Many think the AC is an etheric organization based on a 5th dimension or plane. Others believe those etheric beings are incarnate as well, bridging worlds, as it were, as part of the ‘ground crew.’ It would only make sense that the latter would probably be evidence of their reality, eh? Cosmic consciousness resides in all of us, but those of the Command tend to find it early and live it internally long before others recognize their cosmic connection externally.

Where do you stand? …or are you sitting on the sidelines? Are you willing to explore more regarding the remote possibility that these things exist? With your permission, of course, prepare to have your mind expanded and/or your experience validated – whichever works best for you. I don’t pretend to have all the answers as my own experience continues to offer the need for better questions and deeper exploration. Still, I have enough to be of value in my contributions to the quest for understanding our multidimensional reality. Quantum sciences suggest strongly that there is much more capacity to our awareness.

I’ll give some brief information here, along with a bit of my personal experience to date. Admittedly, my experience is a bit off the charts when it comes to ‘normal’ situations even within the realms of abductees, contactees, expanded intelligence and spiritual visions. I often feel bereft of methodologies to translate sensations and vibrations into an intelligent stream of consciousness; articulation has evolved lately in life. You see, in the realms of this experience there is no need for names. Identification is by vibration… tone, and the rapid-fire streams of consciousness are like the thousand words in one flash of light, nearly incomprehensible.

Recent interactions in the thoughtmosphere on a dimension quite familiar provided another opportunity to share space with AA Michael in a rather interesting conversation regarding standing in truth. We were standing in an open area  lined with trees in the center of a mountain community, resting on the grass amongst the villagers who surrounded us. The discussion was intense and the hundreds around us were completely silent, composed yet startled that one of their own would engage Michael in such fashion. Our eyes were locked and our hearts open, yet the intensity of our energy exchange intimidated the group. We so completely loved each other we merged in our conversation about the living word in each of us and all those around us.

Our discussion was about the stand for truth, acknowledging the attempts of many to disregard the mandates of the Order [Command] and continue to stir fear-based information into the unsuspecting consciousness of those being awakened. We need to hold ourselves and each other accountable for our actions and behavior. The slumber on the ships is over, its time for the consciousness to expand in the bodies of those who’ve come to serve in their highest capacity. The Council is in agreement and its time to move forward, removing the cognitive dissonance of the human consciousness within the body in the process. Aligning intentionally with global peace projects is a facet of the work, internally motivated as evidence.

What gives me the authority to speak? I didn’t just suddenly decide to wave a flag or grab a microphone, although I’m good at the latter as a facilitator and speaker. Click on the video in the upper right to confirm. I’ve had numerous confirmations of my connection, from being the son of Ashtar and Athena to being the commander of the New Jerusalem. I Am still questioning my role and the rest is how open I can remain to the flow of energy in my heart. If you have access to the inner realms where we gather, go there and inquire or ask your favorite psychic. It’s proven to be effective when they are clear. I can offer much, but it will mean nothing if you have no direct experience of this connection on your own.

I trust my experience. I encourage you to trust your experience in the face of what others might tell you. Do you have one, an experience that is? Do you trust it? If not, why? If you have no direct experience from which to question, then might I suggest inquiring further. My book, Cosmic Conundrum, might help. I tested mine for decades before finally giving in to this apparent path. Let me share a little of how things have developed and my reason for the season to share. It was not an easy path nor was it easy to accept my own destiny, but I have been confronted with it for decades. Now that I’m stepping out in the light, so to speak, I’m sure I’ll have a different sort of confrontation.

I’ve been working on this integration of cosmic consciousness and capacity for translation for nearly 50 years now. It continues to lead the evolution of consciousness and understanding cosmology. I was first contacted shortly after I became aware that I was adopted, by a voice that sounded so large that I thought it was coming from everywhere and through everything. “Hey You!” It came from within. I had just turned 6 at the time. Nearly 50 years later, I have grown to know many realms and worlds of experience. My articulation is getting better even though it is still a great challenge, but it is a lot more fun now. Wordsmithing is a wonderful way to express concepts and experience whilst keeping a vigilant eye out.

A couple of years later [after the voice] I had numerous nightly trips to an orange cigar-shaped cloud several hundred meters long, possibly a quarter mile in length. I actually watched myself through the entire experience, up to reaching the perimeter of the cloud. It was pretty much the same every time. At that point I would wake up in bed the next morning, feeling like I couldn’t wait until the next time. I had this intense anticipation and excitement, but I could never talk about it. Now I know this was my initial education amongst peers in what one might call the real Star Fleet Command. Sound incredulous, doesn’t it? Hey, you don’t have to believe it. I’m as much an observer and reporter as experiencer. I’ve learned to detach.

These trips happened about once a month or so over a two year period. I had enough sense to keep the experiences to myself at that time. I had tried to talk to my parents about the ‘Hey You!’ voice and met with incredible denial. I did not need to convince them at the time. My truth and reality was enough and that ‘knowing’ continues to serve me well to this day. It doesn’t really matter what I think anyway; what happened indeed happened. Occasionally there were witnesses just to keep me sane, although at times we all were simply left speechless.

The first couple of decades of my life were full of wondrous experiences, most of them naturally mr-naturaloccurring. I have to admit that, like many of the 70’s, I experimented with psychotropics and stumbled into the path proffered by shamans and some mystics. So many ego deaths and transformations, leading one back to the main entrance clean and clear. My mind, according to my parents, was quite brilliant and completely replacing our entire body’s cells every 7 years means no loss of brain cells. I not only excelled in school, I learned to go inside, too. The inner worlds are rich with experience and wisdom that few choose to entertain, let alone release their own constrictions about death and the ‘other side’ of life.

Sometimes there is no boundary between the two, but the mind has to be willing to be free of liability, limitation and excuses…. engaged by the challenge to change as one becomes aware. In essence, we must suspend any and all belief systems learned to date in order to discover truth. I found myself in such a place as I was asked if I was willing to die for what I believe in. As a result I made my first journey into and beyond the ‘White Light’ that nearly everyone who has an NDE describes.

 I recently spoke at an International Association for Near Death Studies 2010 annual conference and addressed the possibility that the NDErs have better access to the greater consciousness of the Galactic Federation and specifically the Ashtar Command. One who has experienced total release from the body and returned with a new living awareness is quite open to contact by soular contract. After all, the Ashtar Command is said to be the administrational arm of the local Universe Council regarding fulfillment of soul contracts. That is, if you believe in that kind of thing. Truthfully, belief doesn’t

What do you intend to do about it? I will not claim to have all the answers. I’ve been given the direction we must take… Unity for Harmony of People and Planet. The rest is up to all of us and how we develop our group consciousness, group dynamic, and collabreation (collaborative creation). It is more than just co-creating as the individual efforts become part of the collective, feeding the whole project with the best we can offer in this or any other world.

Indeed, it has to be done with skill and precision. The existing systems of this world facilitate our understanding and development of project planning and implementation on whatever level it may occur. There is a process of perfection with everything, including the seemingly mundane daily business of living on planet earth. Shifting the consciousness to acknowledge each waking moment as a miracle in itself helps to open the doors to perception.

Contact and Psycho-Spiritual Technologies

Contact and psycho-spiritual technologies are more connected than what we might think. We know that levels of consciousness are far different than what we are used to happening during contact experiences. The experiencer is often caught in the midst of it, unable to retain or reflect in process. Some do, but it is rare.

The phenomena becomes the focus rather than the communication that took place most don’t remember. For some outside the fray, the ability to integrate the experience, let alone be available for more, becomes a life-long quest for achieving credibility while seeking validation from the shared experiences of others.

We like expeditious experiences, quick fixes to the challenges we face in learning how to multiplane awareness and solfeggio toneslive a more aligned life, where aspiration, inspiration, qualification and vocation coalesce. How do we get to that place? Learning how to be still for long periods of time sure helps; allowing the mind to be adrift and quiet on the ocean of emotion.

Like Einstein said in his definition of insanity being if you keep doing the same thing and expect different results…. we need different behaviors and thoughts. With the new thought and non-linear/non-local opportunities to shift, there are many who are presenting possibilities now.

Star Trek presented the concept of thought-inspired travel many years ago. I’ve had my own experiences of traveling by thought, with no other explanation possible. Focused thinking void of distraction can produce a variety of experiences, intentional or unintentional depending on who is driving the bus. The traditional ufologist researcher is usually unwilling to explore this realm. It’s viewed as too subjective.

One of the best tools I found is call the Multi-plane Awareness Technique, developed originally by William Swygard back in the 1950s. When I was first introduced to it in 1989 it open me up like a lotus and life got kinda weird for a bit… a good weird, mind you. There was no recorded version of it, unfortunately, as it was done with a live facilitator back then… and still.

I looked for a long time, then decided to record it and share. It got some great reviews and probably a lot more potentially that folks were a bit skiddish to write about because of the high strangeness. A couple of years ago I re-recorded it and embedded the 9 Solfeggio frequencies in it as well; they fit perfectly with the 9 planes of consciousness presented during the journey.

So with that, I’d like to share the latest version… 1 hour and 20 minutes, roughly. It safe and non-habit forming…. (well, maybe) Multi-Plane with Solfeggio Tones

I believe this technique allowed me to garner the ability to be present enough to experience the ‘anal probe’ in a different way than many others, understanding it is a procedure beyond any perception of being ‘sexual’ in nature. It has also opened me to communication on levels that are amazing, as well as allowing non-linear and non-local moments to become more present.

After It’s News, Then What?

The Sky is Falling!

Hundreds of sightings, abductions and first-hand accounts have made it possible to distinguish several distinct alien species that have been in cahoots with military forces, deciding our future without ever consulting us.

Contactee Alex Collier says he was allowed to share some details about these extraterrestrials: “The Draconians are the force behind the repression of human populations everywhere in this galaxy, instilling fear-based belief systems and restrictive hierarchies. […]they’re extremely clairvoyant and extremely clever, and they can also be extremely sinister.” …from Before It’s News

Back on the Planet

Greetings Gaians! After It's News, Then What?

Greetings Gaians!
After It’s News, Then What?

I just love how the continued rhetoric pits man against alien, as if man vs. man isn’t enough. I find it to be completely unfounded and more of a ruse than actual truth. Folks love to create drama-driven mythical tales to tantalize the attraction humans have to fear-driven events, like moths to a flame. Just look at the wealth of movies, video games and television created for just such purposes. Even the ‘major media’ outlets are driven to report the news in ways that continue the fascination with fear.

The tall tale tellers generally have something to gain from continuing the ruse. Profit? Prestige?

Scientists haven’t said anything about Niburu… that’s all from Sitchin’s work. Like Nidle, he was very reluctant to have direct eye contact when I met him in person. Something wasn’t right and I certainly wasn’t being intrusive. I listen and I watch, observing details most refuse to see and I report as best I can. It doesn’t make ‘the news.’ It would mean many would have to walk away disappointed that there was no aggressor to fight.

Honestly, by most accounts, any race with the technology as advanced as these are purported to have could ‘take over’ the planet at will… but they don’t and haven’t. The thing is we, as humans, are caught up in the nasty ne’er-do-wells from the beginning of when ruling parties took over the population management schemes for their often selfishly-driven motives. What if there were no antagonist or protagonist in this movie? What if the intent of these races is to get us beyond that?

Belief factors aside, my direct experience from a lifetime of varied engagement and involvement with off-planet and on-planet intelligence beyond human indicates a concerted and willful participation in helping humans to rise above such destructive notions. It is a matter of consciousness, evolving beyond the material world to understand the nature of energy, thought and universal laws. The latter are such that manipulation of space and time are impossible without adherence to a universal prime directive.

The simple truth is we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form, becoming aware of the fact… slowly.

And What of Consciousness?

Fear not… Pure consciousness appears as sunlight because of it’s nature, light, which we have multiple witness accounts over humanity’s existence but few explanations of ‘how’ it actually happens. All references are such that the ‘intelligence’ imbues the moment with blissful or even effervescent sensations beyond human comprehension. This is on the other side of the fear that precedes the moment of release to the experience fully. The same is true of countless ‘contact’ experiences reported by those who have no vested interest in commercial viability of their accounts.

Hanging on comments from folks that show up in public arenas under the influence, staggering beyond any possible denial of their condition, just seems completely bereft of making sense in any fashion. Most are unwilling to admit their accounts and reflections are derived from angry and hostile attitudes driven by those substances and their personal problems as a result. We are a denial-driven social machine at best until now.

After It’s News, Then What?

Like the notion of a ‘New World Order’ is actually the Old World Order trying to appear hip, Before It’s News seems more like an after effect of mind altering (often numbing) propaganda-driven infomercials that try to sell you sick before selling you well. There is a sale in there somewhere. None of it makes sense from deep inner truth looking places, but it sure makes sense for keeping attention on the propaganda machine.

Consider the nature of data being driven through the world wide web. It’s all light pulses, neither good or bad, just data. It is reflective of our thoughts in how we interpret that data. Nothing is good or bad, only our thinking makes it so. When we are in charge, truly in charge, of how we choose to think and remain free of outside influences, ‘what is’ emerges from within.

In the end, don’t believe a thing I’ve said. Take some time to investigate your own inner truth looking place and make your own choices. I’ve made mine. A true ‘new world order’ is one of harmony among people and planet in my humble opinion. What if that were true? How might it appear in the world currently?

The Hypostasis of the Archons

The Hypostasis of the Archons

An Introduction By Bernadette Rezak

(with comments by Zen Benefiel)

In this day there is much “talk” about The Archons mostly in the Experiencer circles and more widely in the UFO lingo when speaking about certain Aliens.

Being an Ordained Gnostic Priest and serving as a High priestess since 1990, it seems to me that the subject of the Archons has not had much consideration. The Hypostasis of The Archons is otherwise known as “The Reality of the Rulers” and these Rulers come into play form the very Formation of US.

So I begin this talk with a definition of an Archon in the gnostic terminology.

An Archon, in the Gnosticism of late antiquity, referred to several servants of the demiurge, the “Creator God” that stood between the human race and a transcendent God that could only be reached through gnosis. In this context they have the role of the angels and the daemons of the Old Testament.

Further the Gnostic concept of the Universe is the role played by the seven world-creating archons known as the Hebdomad.

These seven are semi-hostile powers. They are the last and lowest emanations of the Godhead: below them-and frequently considered as derived from them –comes the world of the actually devilish powers.

There are certain exceptions: Basilides taught the existence of a “great archon” called Abraxas who presided over the 365 archons.

The ancient astronomy taught that above the seven planetary spheres was an eighth, the sphere of the fixed stars. In Gnostic teachings, it was in this eighth sphere that the mother to whom these archons owed their origin dwelt, Sophia (Wisdom) or Barbelo.

Hebdomad denotes the seven archons and also the name of the place denoting the heavenly regions over which the seven archons presided. (perhaps the number of perfection is derived from this understanding?)

What is an Archon?

Taken from the Greek word archai it means, “origins, beginning, prior to time.’

In the classical Mediterranean world, archon was commonly used for the governor of a province or any religious or governmental authority. So the plural term of Archons in gnostic texts were “the Authorities”.

Archons, then, are a species of inorganic beings that emerged in the solar system prior to the formation of the earth. A genuine species with their own proper habitat and may even be considered god-like but they lack intentionality and occasionally stray away from their boundaries to intrude on the human realm.  They are said to intensely envy humanity because we possess the intentionality that they lack. (this does not mean they intrude with malevolent intent.)

The Mystery Schools teach that the Archons are an alien force that intrudes subliminally upon the human mind and distracts us from sanity and higher elevation. It is not them to blame for our own actions of inhumanity for we have the potential to follow the truth in our hearts. Deviant and abnormal tendencies of violence and inhumane behavior therefore are a result of weakness on our part to follow our worst human failings, due to intrusion of the Archons on our space. (a lack of understanding promotes fear first; fearlessness comes from seeking understanding of the truth.)

The Archons are also –OUR COSMIC KIN

Psycho-Spiritual –offspring of Aeon Sophia. (An Aeon is a God understood in terms of physics of consciousness)

Inorganic entities are two types: embryonic and reptilian.

They exist independent of humankind. They exist as a presence in our minds.

Risk of invading our minds is far greater than any physical risk they make by breaching the biosphere.

Working through telepathy and suggestion the Archons attempt to deviate us from our course of evolution.

(The notion of the 72 names of God, from the esoteric Hebrew teachings (Kaballistic); 36 greater  and 36 lesser denote those who impart wisdom and those who test it, the ‘invasion’ of temptation.)

The Gnosis Theory of Alien Intrusion

Roswell 1947, the UFO phenomenon, present day encounters, alien intrusion are rampant everywhere. In 1947 an alien ship crashes in Roswell. In 1945 The Nag Hammadi scrolls are found in Egypt, although they were not realized until 1947 where they were brought to the Light, announced to the world.

Gnosis means “inner knowing.” The Nag Hammadi Scrolls were lost teachings of the Mystery Schools and these two major events were happening at the same time on Earth.

Gnostics were Pre-Christian ancient seers that explored the cosmos at large. In heightened perception, Gnostics developed a vast cosmological vision centered in a female deity, the Divine Sophia. The Gnostic creation myth explains, in detail, how inorganic alien beings came to be present in our solar system.

friendly neighborsFirst hand encounters with inorganic beings called Archons, ET’s or Aliens abounded in the Gnostic teachings. They are benevolent or neutral toward humanity.

Physical descriptions of Archons, two types are clearly identified:

A neonate or embryonic type

A Draconic or reptilian type

Descriptions fit the Greys and Reptilians of contemporary reports to a TEE as in Extra Terrestrial!

Gnostic texts use mythological language to describe actual events in prehistory as well as long term developments in the human psyche.

(This information as a clarification from the ancient mystery schools is imperative to understand as we move forward toward Harmony Among People and Planet. We are part of a vast inter-connected network of universal construct, designed to reveal itself to those who seek to understand and unite as ONE.  The continued creation of separative notions is an act of choice, even perhaps unintentional ignorance. The conduit is closing, as we were told in the August, 2002 message.)

Is Contact Imminent?

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Fresh Edition 

advice - thoughtSupporting the quest for the truth in Ufology

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Proprioceptive or Simply Preposterous?

ZenGardenProprioceptive or Simply Preposterous?

Kosta asked me to share some insights and perceptions of my engagement with intelligences beyond human. We call them by many names, yet I’m not sure any of them fully embrace or encapsulate their advanced nature. Extraterrestrials, intraterrestrials or ultraterrestrials have been used. Dr. Burkes calls his experiences ‘contact downloads’ and I’m sure they are more than proprioceptive hallucinations.

For me, just after being told I was adopted, the experiences began in my early childhood as an internal voice, a deep male one. Perhaps it was because I had a question of origin. That initial conversation was followed by some guidance through out-of-body-experiences that led up to some monthly ‘views’ of myself getting out of bed, climbing out my window, walking across our neighbor’s backyard to a fence that surrounded a 10-acre cow pasture.

I’d climb the fence and walk out into the field, only to rise up toward an orange cigar-shaped cloud that was perhaps a hundred feet above. My ‘observer’ would unite with my physical body as I entered the cloud and then I’d wake up in bed the next morning, sometimes with a nose bleed, but the feeling I had was that I couldn’t wait to go back. It was amazing and not at all fearful in the slightest.

Years later I was in a bookstore in Muncie, Indiana just before moving to Arizona. A book literally fell off the shelf in front of me, landing cover up on the floor. No one else was around and, of course, I thought it was just a little weird. Nevertheless, I went over and saw the cover, Aliens Among Us by Ruth Montgomery. I picked it up, turned it over and the first paragraph I read (paraphrased) said that the most common contactee experiences in the Midwest during the late 50s and early 60s was the orange cigar-shaped cloud. I had one of those domino moments, where a whole string of things fell into place.

Many other things have happened since then. Probably the most significant is the awareness that no fear is involved in questing after understanding. None of my experiences, even those with very intense energy, have ever felt ominous. In fact, they’ve felt just the opposite. My encounters have all felt like a sense of family, extended as the case may be, yet nevertheless familiar and ultimately soothing. I know that others do not share that sense from their experiences. It is a challenge to be free when you feel like you are not in control of the situation, be it non-linear or non-local events beyond the any previous experiences to date.

What I’ve learned is that, through my own knowing and corroboration from others, we are being asked to step up in our individual awareness, consciousness and understanding. Even Paul Hellyer (retired Canadian Defense Minister) has admitted that there are no malevolent races interacting with us and he was part of the Military Industrial Complex for quite some time. The message we all seem to be getting, in our own ways, is that we need to learn how to get along and clean up our lives and the planet. My favorite version of the ‘New World Order’ we’ve all come to have concerns about is simply ‘Harmony among People and Planet.’

We first must understand we don’t know everything and that some things we think we know may not be quite what we thought. For instance, the recent discover of the ‘God Particle’ or better known as the Higgs-boson was not what the scientist thought as they observed what looked like the decay of a particle to them. Instead, I believe it was a rip in the fabric between dimensions at a sub-atomic level that they witnessed repairing. They proved the reality of MTheory and not Higgs Field Theory, in my humble opinion. Most contactees are quite familiar with the concept of multidimensional awareness and even have an experiential understanding in many cases.

I have a sense that the process of understanding more about our human evolution includes the notion that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form, becoming aware of the fact as we increase our knowledge both scientifically and spiritually. The two seem to spiral around making sense common in that regard… multiple senses, that is. We’re growing by leaps and bounds as we, as a human race, are being able to explore the nature of our existence without the constraints of belief systems. The internet is making this possible. We can research and explore revelations that bring a sense of resonance in the search for ‘truth’ inasmuch as we can relate to it from our limited perspectives. Some things just make sense, implying that there is much more to know and understand as our experience grows.

So, what does this all mean? Are we facing our future with faith or fear? The messages we get, from across the spectrum of channelings, direct ET contact, telepathic transmissions and even crop circles tend to reveal the great potential we have in restoring natural order to our lives and the planet. There is a consciousness beyond common, if you will, that has been written about for millennia by some. Perhaps it is this consciousness, an awareness that there is truly nothing to fear from outside or off-planet, which will continue to assist each of us in our growth toward freedom and open contact with our star families.

I’ve been ‘told’ that this new world order, the one of harmony among people and planet, will happen in my lifetime. Well, I’m 57 now. I was told that when I was 18. I’ve noticed a tremendous growth in awareness leading up to the Winter Solstice of 2012. Now we need to implement that awareness back into the existing systems on Earth, using the skillsets we’ve been given and/or acquired through our personal and professional endeavors. I’m doing it in practically every aspect of my life through authoring books, building websites, facilitating groups, in my transformational life coaching and business consulting. Maybe you don’t have all that going on, yet you can be at peace in your current daily life and look for ways to connect with the greater intelligence. Trust me; ‘they’ want to communicate. We need to learn to listen within. That’s where the communication takes place, especially when we’re quiet.

My advice, if I can offer any at all, is to believe there is a beneficial force that flows through everything – including the engagement of off-planet intelligence as well as the person right next to you. The core of my experience has been and will continue to be Faith, Love and Trust. I know that may be a stretch for some. I can only encourage that you make that stretch and ask for help whenever you feel challenged. That help may come from a ‘contact download’ or sighting or simply a kind word from another. Just be open. Thanks for lending me your eyes. Seek truth – it’s neither proprioceptive nor preposterous. Namaste…

Why No Quality UFO Video?

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

Joseph Burkes MD 2014

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

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

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

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

Consider the following

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

GULF BREEZE

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

SOUTHERN ENGLAND

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

VOLCANIC ZONE NEAR MEXICO CITY

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

LOS MITRES MOUNTAINS

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

RECORD OF LOST OPPORTUNITIES

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

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

THE “ET” MASTER PLAN SCENARIO

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

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

Stock markets could crash.

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

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

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

ETs MIGHT HAVE A DIFFERENT BIOLOGICAL CLOCK

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

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

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

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

A BOLD PLAN WHOSE TIME MAY COME

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

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

PERSEVERE!

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

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

OUR BIRTH RIGHT

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

New Hope for Contactees

FREE-WPNew Hope for Contactees

There is a groundswell of activity on an entirely different level than traditional ufological research, something that has been ever-present yet kept out of the limelight for various reasons. Those reasons vary from possible incredulity to outright denial of the possibility, but let’s face it folks, we’re not alone and the communication circuits have been open for a long time.

Scott Mandelker’s book From Elsewhere: Being ET in America brought out many such ‘contactees’ and their experiences. Their ability to communicate experiences and share the ‘message’ from others was often poorly articulated and, quite frankly, sounded like new-agey gobbledigook most of the time. So, how could anyone really take them seriously, huh? Today, nearly 30 years later the scene is much different.

The growing numbers of ‘contactee’ experience now includes professional people across nearly every industry imaginable, including the realms of astro- and quantum physics. Well respected academicians and researches are discovering that there is much more to the story than meets the proverbial eye (third or otherwise) and the notion of an expanded consciousness capable of perceiving into other realms is tantamount to the new discoveries.

If you’ve had experiences and would like to participate in the research and sharing amongst fellow contactees, please explore the survey hosted on the FREE Website.

Here’s more…

Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters

We at FREE, the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, are undertaking the first ever comprehensive ACADEMIC research project on the ET Contact Phenomena–   The FREE Experiencer Research Project.   Our study will focus on individuals who have had any type of “Contact” with ETs, who we are defining as a “Non-Human Intelligent Being”, but the primary focus will be on UFO related ET contact.

FREE was established with the insistence and guidance of Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man on the moon, and Dr. Rudy Schild, Emeritus Professor of Astro-Physics at Harvard University.  Both are founding members of FREE’s Board of Advisors.

No one has ever attempted this type of study on Experiencers before– it will be the first comprehensive ACADEMIC study on the ET contact phenomena involving a series of two surveys and a formal interview.  Phase 1 is our initial survey that is already embedded in our website.  A more extensive survey, our Phase 2 survey, will be provided to those individuals that choose to participate in our formal interviews.  The formal interview will be the Phase 3 component of our study.

The FREE Experiencer Research Project is being supervised by 2 retired Professors of Psychology–   Dr. Jon Klimo, the world’s leading expert on the so called “Paranormal” phenomena, and Dr. Leo Sprinkle, the pioneer in the research field of “ET Contact” who published his first article on this subject in 1962.  By the way, both Dr. Klimo and Dr. Sprinkle are “Experiencers”.

Dr. Klimo is the Chair of our research project.  Dr. Klimo has chaired over 250 Ph.D. dissertations, 75 of them on the topic of the “paranormal”.  Dr. Klimo has also taught “Research Methodology” for over 40 years.

Other members of our research project are: Mary Rodwell, Whitley Strieber, Barbara Lamb, Ralph Steiner, Kathleen Marden, Denise Stoner, Giorgio Piacenza, Dr. Joe Lewels, Dr. Michael Melton, Chase Kloetzke, and several other members. This is the cream of the crop when it comes “ET Contact Researchers”.  Most of these individuals have worked with “Experiences” for over 25 years.

The ET Contact Phenomena comes in “all flavors and colors”– some Experiencers perceive their experiences as extremely positive while some as extremely negative, and so many in between.  FREE does not take any position regarding what might be the “ET Agenda”.  We might have our own personal individual hypothesis and beliefs, but as an organization we stand neutral on the ET Agenda issue.  The ET Contact Phenomena is extremely complex and we agree with Einstein when he said: Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.

ANONYMITY: As a participant for our 2 surveys and formal interview, you have a choice to Rey and Dr. Mitchell,remain “ANONYMOUS”. There will be no way for us to find out who you are and where you live if you wish not to identify yourself.

Please inform all “Experiencer”, individuals that have had any type of “Contact” with an ET (a “Non-Human Intelligent Being”), about our FREE Experiencer Research Project and encourage them to take our initial survey that is located in our website.

UFOlogyPRSS Curator, Zen Benefiel, will be hosting Co-Founder Rey Hernandez during the 2015 IUFOC so look for us at the event and absolutely feel FREE to engage. Reach out to either one of us if you would like to schedule some time while at the event.
