Ufology Conundrums – UAP/UFO and Multidimensional Mayhem

State of Affairs or Affectation in Ufology Updates

We’ve all been aware of the recent advances in some areas of Ufology updates. Some embrace it and some are still suspicious. As much as we may not like to admit it, To The Stars Academy is raising the bar or at worst raising awareness in the public view. As with any newly formed group with suspicious characters there are naysayers and supporters by the score. The battle to bring information to the public has taken on a new look on and off stage.

The one thing that TTSA has done, though, it generated an explosion of interest in the UFO phenomena in the main stream news and public eye. Ufology updates continue to develop. Proof and truth will come out eventually, or not, yet the boost in exposure could bode well for the Ufology community IF there is a meeting of minds and some sort of demonstrable collaboration beyond TTSA. One of their first publications sets the stage for their dive into disclosure.

Hard and soft approaches are both necessary in the adjudication of experience and material ufology updatesevidence. The hard side is the nuts and bolts approach driven by evidence and ‘proof’ that seems to pass all the usual tests. The soft side is more delicate as it is subjective, with little evidence other than the ability to articulate effectively, driven by the desire to share for multiple reasons. The former sits well with materialists and the latter, not so much.

Ufology is known for its mysteries and mysterious characters, some with better reputations than others, yet they all play the game of notoriety and temptation. Everyone wants you to believe their story and many seem to be in conflict. They sometimes proffer data, details or disclosure as ‘exclusive’ in an attempt to get folks on the edge of their seats waiting for more.

Social Media has become a place of open denial and deep discussion. The marketing gurus have a field day with the unsuspecting public. It still seems like a contest for who can build the biggest fan base. This one or that one is always posting something to demonstrate their knowledge and research capability, though many assumptions and conjecture takes place as well. Sometimes posts prove noteworthy.

The reports of secret space programs and interaction with ‘alien’ races is another aspect that appears to be producing more incredulity than believe-ability in the field. The reports have provided certain folks great notoriety and a huge fan base of would-be believers. The stories certain garnered attention from event promoters as major attractions for the unsuspecting public. Only time will prove the reality.

Some Ufologists and experiencers that have been around long before the term are puzzled by the ‘new’ information shared through various channels on social media as much of it has been ‘revealed’ through many presenters and vendors at UFO expos for decades. The numbers in those groups are obviously small in comparison, so with recent main stream media sources picking up the ball our hopes for better coverage are at least partially fulfilled.

The nuts and bolts side of Ufology has to do, for the most part, with historical events, documents, meetings, photos, videos and evidence of extraterrestrial craft or technology. Those elements are a critical part of ufology in bringing the information to the public. Why? Hopefully for the public good. What would the optimal results be if there were full or even partial disclosure? What would desired Ufology updates look like?

There is still another aspect of within the field, non-competitive in perspective, that has evolved over time and with progression of extended contact of a largely non-physical variety.

Experiencer-Driven Data

There is another side to the story that is both ambiguous and incommensurate; the subjective experiences of folks claiming contact or engagement by non-human or extraterrestrial intelligence. It is a grey area for sure. Depending on the lens we view it through, it can be seen as incredulous or incredible. We need data, right? Studies have been made. Both FREE and MUFON have engaged the inquiry of experiencers.

Data from experiencers is different than the nuts and bolts side of Ufology. It’s the soft side mentioned previously, full of subjective accounts. Those accounts range from emotionally-laden fear-based descriptions of encounters to the more objective and fearless descriptions of self-aware and perhaps even participatory engagement. Discernment is important.

Some of the more hard approach public figures who’ve been steeped in conspiracy, ufology updatesgovernment disclosure, exploration of evidence and material sciences have a real challenge with the soft approach. They are hard pressed to acknowledge the experiential side as there is no knowledge base or direct experience for them to relate. A recent interview and honest response regarding a very prominent figure who has emerged in the experiencer field.

The historical perspective of experiencers and their accounts goes back decades in present times and perhaps millennia in regards to ancient texts. The latter offers descriptions based on the common language and philosophies of the time. Today we can review many of these accounts and find incredible similarities across the centuries. Proof of dominance and control is sorely lacking, yet fear-based thinking still keeps many in the dark.

Most recently, the cross-referencing of experiential information and the notion of the evolution of consciousness have become more interesting to Ufologists. The notion of applied quantum physics in relation to the aspect of awareness and, in a large sense, creating reality unconsciously seems to be of great concern. Nearly every aspect of communication from non-human or extraterrestrial intelligence (for lack of better descriptors) leans toward a rise of consciousness.

What does that rise of consciousness mean? Perhaps it is as simple as becoming self-aware, managing our thoughts and feelings in positive ways. Perhaps it is the notion that all things are connected and we affect reality by our baseline energy, the attitude we carry with us. Perhaps it extends to our community and world in respect to the environment and effective planetary administration, managing resources so the all people can be cared for and nurtured.

There are still concerns among experiencers, though. Not everyone perceives their experiences as benign or benevolent. Extended play, the long-term experiencers, do tend to change their point of view over time, from a less than desirable experience to one of understanding a larger picture and the overcoming of their fears was more important. Confronting incongruous notions might be the next phase of creating better baseline knowledge.

Ufology Updates – 2019 Year in Review

We participated in a large panel discussion recently, embedded below, that reviewed the year’s greatest changes and/or events in Ufology, a kind of Ufology update. Certainly the ‘leaked’ released Navy videos of Unidentified Arial Phenomena (UAP) brought the light of day into a dark room. Michio Kaku’s interview with Jaime Maussan included the considerations of advanced civilizations beyond the burden of proof now being on the governments, to prove the UAPs aren’t extraterrestrial.

Spyros brings up his video (alien autopsy) and the massive hoax created by it, noting how gullible the public is still, and how falsified information is so easily introduced and accepted by the public (even some Ufologists) as being true. We’ve got a long way to go to find ways of vetting information that are consistent and uniform. It may take quite some time for that to happen, but it would be a necessary component of establishing some kind of unified front in Ufology.

We all want Disclosure, right? How do we want it? Our governments, military and leaders are ufology updatestasked with keeping us safe. NOTHING that even comes close to threatening our safety will ever be fully revealed to the public. The public’s opinion may vary as to how disclosure is best, through intelligent conversation regarding it doesn’t seem to be consistent. The reality is the public is, at best, squeamish when it comes to the appearance of the unknown let alone engaging it. We’re thinking in human and mostly fear-based terms.

Storming Area 51 became a fad overnight, with thousands of people showing up for the event. Did they really expect to storm Area 51? It seems doubtful, but it did give folks a chance to party in the desert. We all need a good party to move things forward. The number of foreign press that covered the event also brought the topic to the world, not just the US. We might anticipate a broader range of coverage as the events develop, though it still seems to be largely focused on the nuts and bolts side of Ufology.

Our concern here at UfologyPRSS is that by all indications and protocols for establishing movements, it starts with a unified front with individuals and organizations aligning with basic components or elements of a theme or even manifesto. There are a number of documents and organizations, but they largely seem autonomous and unwilling to collaborate, though some do.

What will it take for Ufologists to find common ground? Will the field be able to have some kind of harmonic convergence between the hard and soft components of the phenomena and, if so, how will it occur? Something to begin considering, in our opinion. Stay tuned for more Ufology Updates…

Mysterious Etherians Echo Quantum Theory – Wave to Form Action

While doing some research, this article came across the screen. No claims to authenticity are made here, discernment is key. The material presents interesting perspectives being discussed among present-day ufologists… nearly 70 years later.

by GERALD LIGHT* (http://bit.ly/2ogv1pC)

I have been asked almost every possible question the human mind could devise or imagine concerning The Etherian Peoples. In the beginning of my attempts to share with my friends and their friends something of the experiences I had with these Beings I went into great detail and used every means at my disposal to try and answer questions. Before long I realized that no matter how long I talked, what I said and what I implied, my listeners were obtaining very little information. At first I attributed this to my own lack of descriptive powers; and I lay awake nights trying to think up ways and means to more clearly and accurately explain the many remarkable situations which are so unfamiliar to the people of our planet. Eventually I came to the paramount reason why I was having so little success in passing my knowledge on to my friends. I isolated, so to speak, the major impasse over which I seemed unable to take anyone.

Stripped of endlessly related modifications, comparatives and conditions I saw, at last, that the one reason why I could not sensibly explain Etheria to my earthly friends lay in a strange and completely absurd distinction which we all make concerning the very fundamentals of our material existence. For various reasons we, as earth people, have built up a system of religious, philosophical or meta-physical barriers which actually have no existence, or validity, except in our own minds. We make a very peculiar distinction between what we call “outer” and “inner”, or “material” and “spiritual”, “human” and “divine”.

The Etherians make no distinction between the different rates of “consciousness” between the “visible” and the “invisible”, as do we. To Them, the idea of “Man” being human or earthly and “God” being divine or spiritual is a ludicrous bit of infantile nonsense. The Etherians have absolutely no comprehension of an “inner world” and an “outer plane”. They know nothing of an earth and its related heaven (which forms the basis of all our world religions.)

Our habit of making, or trying to make, an impassable boundary between two or more vibratory levels of energy and substance seems totally insane to Them. To these Peoples of “Inner and Outer Space” we are the veriest idiots in that we attempt to regard one vibration or level of substance as mortal, physical and essentially evil; and another level of the same substance as divine, exalted immortal and it celestial in its basic qualities.

The Etherians are unable to make any distinctions (save possibly a hypothetical premise in order to understand our lopsided attitudes between those elements of being which we call variously mind, will, energy, substance, matter and spirit. Perhaps I should condition that statement slightly since They are brilliantly able to discuss these various elements as such. But They do not make, nor do They see the slightest necessity to make, a distinction between will, energy, mind and so on as these elements operate in different levels and with different speeds or vibrations. In other words, our “human” will is as valid to Them as is that will which we assign to our deity. The energy and substance of our physical or “earthly” plane is as divine, as heavenly, as cosmic as the energy and matter of the “inner planes” or our “heaven”. “God’s will”, as opposed to or superior to “man’s will”, is an absurdity to the Etherians. They do not understand how we can be so ridiculous as to make such distinctions in our religions and philosophies. It is the same, to Them, as considering ice an earthly, mortal substance; water an astral or psychic material; and vapor as heavenly and divine!

The apologists for our human whimsicalities may proffer the excuse that we do not know and see these “inner planes” and should therefore be forgiven our intellectual inconsistencies in this matter of the so-called human and divine.

However, neither do the people of Etheria “see” the various planes or know them as precisely as They understand the one in which They happen to be functioning at any given moment. We are surrounded constantly by forces which are not visible, not material in any tangible or substantial sense — yet we do not hesitate to use them and to regard them as normal, earthly, “human” and a part of our contemporary consciousness. The currents in our electrical machines are certainly of a magical, psychic and occult nature. We never “see” them. We see only the reactions of them, the result of harnessing them to our needs and requirements. Still We do not deify electricity, label it astral and fence it in with philosophical premises.

The Etherian has no consciousness of anything until he or she uses it through one or more of his senses. Then he “knows” it, understands something of its nature, and endeavors to make it a part of himself. And in this last endeavor lies, probably if not certainly, the crux of the entire difference between ourselves and the selves of these remarkable people.

The mental processes of the Etherians are brilliantly contrived to enable the Ego, or if you like, the Spirit, to contact endless aspects of substance and force in whatever natural element, or plane, he may find himself. This utilitarian capacity produces a pantheistic philosophy that is intensely practical and of immediate purpose to him. [3]In our philosophy we speculate — while these strange Etherian people operate. Their metaphysical systems are extraordinary simple and direct, and instantly applicable to their normal and essential needs. The huge volumes of theoretical speculation and guess-work with which our own philosophers have occupied themselves over the centuries might interest the Etherians as so much theosophical curiosa; but They dismiss our topheavy philosophies as indifferently as we dismiss the efforts of certain oriental pundits to prove how long is forever, how high is up.

In our present earthly, human instruments is to be found the basic element or aspect of every force and power which moves through our own planet, and the other globes which make up our system. But of this we know, and have known, precious little. The Etherians believe that we, of earth, should give our first attention to a discovery and recognition of the forces and elements which compose our instrument — and stop speculating what kind of a heaven or paradise we will inherit when we die.

The ability of the Etherian peoples to use the forces of life and energy within their bodies is achieved, so They say (and They should surely know), by Their becoming conscious of these forces through the application and control of Their senses. My last letter went into this far enough to present the idea at least as a theoretical proposition, (a proposition which our earthly occult “leaders” have choked upon and promptly spit out — for the simple reason that such a theory demands a personal application of its students. Horrible thought!)

The philosophy of Etheria, on this point is wonderfully simple and direct: The more one uses of God, the more one understands or knows God. And the more one knows God the more one becomes — God. Take it or leave it; you cannot contrive a more sensible and practical attitude. In Etheria, the first law of life is — use. What you have in Etheria — you use; and what you use, you become, CONSCIOUSLY BECOME. Automatic living, so popular in our world, is regarded with horrified distaste and revulsion in Etheria. Hence, through the simple process of using, consciously, a part of God, Etherians become God. And they produce scientific wonders which make us the equal of nothing, in comparison.

The beings of Etheria are unable to experience death as do the beings of earth. Etherians do not go to “Paradise” simply because they do not know anything about such a “heavenly” state — and do not seem at all distressed by such a fate.

However, there is a state which might be likened, slightly, to that which we of this earthly world experience. An Etherian may “die” several times during a hundred years or so. But it is a death in the same sense that we all die to our childhood state and go on into what we call maturity.

Death, in our understanding, is impossible to an Etherian because he is not imprisoned in his body by the absurd notions which we insist upon believing to be part of a “divine” plan. His body is an instrument in the most literal and exact sense of the word. The Etherian takes on, and leaves off, a body as easily and consistently as the radio-wave flows through a small, simple instrument of a single tube — or through the highly complex set packed with tubes and magical equipment. He will no more identify himself with a body (in the sense of ownership, or egoic imprisonment) than does the free-flowing radio-wave.

The people of Etheria are totally free from the endless distinctions, reservations, and conditions of substance with which we surround ourselves, and with which, sooner or later, we destroy these selves. Not only do we establish immutable standards of mind and emotion that distinguish us from what we term “animals”. We also regard the body of these animals as of a substance less “divine”, less “Spiritual” and “holy” than our own. And we do not even consider the plant and mineral forms as having any possible relation or similarity to our own forms.

In this pitifully primitive world of earth we manage to achieve rather sublime heights in the creative arts, through the development of superlative faculties of rhythm, harmony, coordination and comparison. Yet we are hopelessly doomed by our apparent inability to use these same creative faculties to pierce the tragically artificial dimension we impose in terms of religion and philosophy.

Now and then I have ventured to make a statement which is based in absolute reality, and which holds the solution to most of the questions troubling those few earthly minds who seriously, and urgently, seek to grasp the meaning and message of Etheria and its races. I will make it here — without the slightest anticipation of anyone accepting, or considering it:

The Flying Saucers, Discs and other Aeroforms (their number is legion) are, in many instances the actual bodies of the Etherian creatures. (And here we shall all-bow our venerable heads in a moment of silence to mark the point at which Gerald’s Light went out, or off the well-known beam.)

It is possible that this latest deduction of my deluded brain may evoke a bit more response, from that pontifical hierarchy of “authorities” which suggests extreme caution in these matters, than did my last letters. I shall, however, not wait for that august assembly to bestir itself from its complacent slumber upon the pinnacles of the philosophical mountain (which they regard as their private property), and give me the nod to go ahead. It is to these self same authorities that mankind owes its present condition of pitiful ignorance and intellectual poverty.

It’s No Wonder We’re a Bit Confused by Intelligence

Intelligence is Over-rated

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?

The State of Ufology Today

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

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

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

Banal Banter

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

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

Money for Nothing

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

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

Who Goes There?

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

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

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

Cosmic Comedy

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

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

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

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

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


Phoenix Lights – Celebrating 20 Years

Probably the most notable person that keeps the event alive is Dr. Lynne Kitei, the force behind the documentary ‘Phoenix Lights.’ She is a regular at the Harkin’s Theater in Scottsdale, Arizona in mid-March every year. With the help of many actual witnesses, the Phoenix Lights documentary is rich with evidence that ‘we are not alone.’

Excerpt: On March 13, 1997 something extra-ordinary happened in the skies over Phoenix & across Arizona. On that clear evening a parade of low flying, mile wide V-shaped arrays of orbs & craft glided silently overhead, attracting the attention of at least 10,000 people. This is the detailed account of that evening & the ensuing cover up of what is now being hailed as the largest mass sighting of UFOs in modern times – but there is much more to the story.

Dr. Kitei and Steve Lantz have crafted a story for the history books, with real-life witnesses that number into the hundreds. It is estimated that thousands of witnesses exist, many of them remain silent for fear of ridicule. The brave and courageous witnesses that have come forth make for a compelling pile of evidence, even without the physical proof, that we are not alone.

What has happened since that eventful night, the apparent cover-up and the relentless efforts of then City Councilwoman Francis Emma Barwood to get to the truth? Governor Fife Symington scoffed at the event initially, showing off an alien-costumed cohort at a press conference. Years later his story was much different. It is funny how things can change when public opinion is not so important.

Fife recounts his experience, “It was enormous and inexplicable,” he said in an exclusive interview from his home in Phoenix. “Who knows where it came from? A lot of people saw it, and I saw it too.” Symington says he saw a large triangular “craft of unknown origin” with lights, moving slowly. “It was dramatic. And it couldn’t have been flares because it was too symmetrical,” he says. “It had a geometric outline, a constant shape.”

Perhaps it was the bank fraud conviction that nullified his actual testimony of the event and made it less important in the public eye. So many witnesses remain baffled, not by the sighting, by how little attention has been paid to such a phenomenal event. Dr. Lynne speaks and shares clips and photos at many UFO events around the world, but she seems to be overshadowed by the sensational stories of those who may likely be intentional distractions to the truth.

What we are left with are obvious signs that something literally out of this world was present that night. What were ‘they’ doing? Was it a test to see how the public reacted or responded to a visible craft, large enough to leave no mistake about it? There were paradoxical and polarized results, from evidence of scrambled jets to complete denial of anything happening. Humans in power are fickle, evidently.

I, as an available interested party and personal friend, was present for many of the interviews conducted at Village Labs by Jim Dilettoso and Michael Tanner in the days and weeks following the event. The stories were consistent in what witnesses saw; the shape of the craft, the immense size, the silence and the apparent ‘particles of light’ darting around inside the actual lights as they passed overhead. The accounts were too similar and witnesses had no contact with each other prior to their interviews.

Village Labs was also a hot-spot for UFOlogists at the time. Photo and video analysis was a forte’ of the duo, Dilettoso and Tanner. Jim had appeared on numerous TV shows regarding his analysis of popular ‘evidence’ provided by many from around the world, including many still on the ‘circuit’ today. Guys like Lt. Colonel (USAF Ret.) Wendelle Stevens and Jaime Maussan were regulars. Jim and Michael were instrumental in the sharing of information with Dr. Lynne as she developed her documentary files.

Something that Jim revealed to me was that there were actually two ships that visited the Valley of the Sun that night, one that traveled along I-17 and another that traveled south following Scottsdale Rd. That information isn’t shared in the documentary, but the single mass-sighting is certainly enough to keep our attention. So many witnesses, so little attention by the media and researchers still.

The question remains, “What was the purpose for ‘showing up’ in Phoenix?”
