I had suspected for a long time from my researches that man has been in communication withbeings not of this earth for thousands of years. This personal opinion comes from a closereading of the record of ancient religions and from my own observations and data. What is notclear is why such communication has been kept secret for so long.With the publication of this book, however, many of the cosmic secrets are now declassified.But the release of this knowledge in fact raises more questions than it answers.One of the first of these new questions is an important one: Why was Uri Geller selected to bethe ambassador for an advanced civilisation? why did I become the principal witness to thisambassadorship and the chief scribe of its gradually unfolding revelations? These interrelatedquestions will be developed throughout this book.My story involves three principal agents. The primary agent is not a single being, but acollegium of voices reaching man on earth. We have, in the beginning, the words of the Nine,who are directly related to man's concept of God. I shall develop the concept of the Nine inthe Introduction. The controllers of the universe operate under the direction of the Nine.Between the controllers and the untold numbers of planetary civilizations in the universe arethe messengers. It is the messengers who help to fulfill the destiny of creation by gentleaccentuation where and when they are needed. Some of these messengers take the form of spacecraft, which in modem parlance are called unidentified flying objects, or UFOs. Uri andI have been reached mostly by the latter type of messenger, whose names and functions arevaried. The intermediary between these messengers and earth people is Uri Geller. Thefunction of chief witness to these interactions has fallen upon me.If I am to get an attentive hearing, the reader should know that I have had many years of professional preparation and research experience in medicine, parapsychology, and laboratoryand field investigations. I have only one interest in writing this book. That is to bring topeople all over the world the facts about the existence of superior beings and what they wantto say to man today. What follows is true, but it is not the whole truth. There are many thingsthat my "editor in the sky" will not yet permit me to reveal. My editor on earth has advised meto delete material that could be considered too controversial or libelous. Events have beenomitted for political reasons where governments have been involved. There are delicatequestions concerning the relations between religions which have been avoided. In order to getthe basic message in print, and out to the people, many diplomatic gestures have had to bemade. Perhaps someday, depending on the response of the public, my editors will allow thewhole truth to be revealed.Many people are mentioned in this book for the roles they played in the reported events. Ihave been in touch with these principals in order to compare my text with their recollections. The text that follows represents the agreement reached between each principal (whom I couldreach) and myself. However, I want to make it clear that this does not mean that theseindividuals have necessarily endorsed the content or conclusions of this book. I stand alonewith respect to the reporting of all events, interpretations, and conclusions.
Once I realized I was involved in an event of immense importance, I began to retrace thoseincidents in my life which brought Uri and me together. The first of these concerns Dr. D. G. Vinod, a Hindu scholar and sage from Poona, India,whom I briefly met by chance in New York City in December 1951. Two months later, onFebruary 16, 1952, I had my first serious meeting with him. At that time he surprised me by3
