Could it be that somewhere hidden in the snow of our television carrier signals are important messages from ETs or other kinds of beings? Might thought images travel through time or through dimensions on carrier signals that are like electronic highways? Maybe it’s worth our turning on the TV set and staring at a blank station for a while to see what images you might be able to see.

If an individual truly believes that the people in general have a right to know the truth about UFOs and paranormal phenomena … then he must logically accept the ideals of natural law and the individual right to selfdetermination. In examining the candidates for their likeliness to engage in disclosure and thus determining their worthiness to hold public office. would be the candidate most likely to engage in UFO disclosure. The reason for this is that these are the only two governing documents in the world that are founded upon natural law. specifically Clinton or Richardson. I am no fan of today’s Republicans! Shouldn’t that perspective be heard as well? free individuals with the right to self-determination. I surmise that if a president cannot or will not keep his word on something as basic as his oath of office.

Keep in mind that it may be detrimental for a campaign to discuss aliens and UFOs due to the ridicule which may be heaped upon it by the mainstream press. This could mean the death of ufology when the state decides that young children will be trained to believe that such ideas are ridiculous as a part of the state-mandated curriculum. Thought crimes punish individuals for their opinions or intellectual positions. a sampling of issues will provide a strong indication of where an applicant stands philosophically. Keep in mind that this is not the same as criminal intent. Due to space limitations I will only evaluate the applicants who meet the following criteria: First. Also. hang our heads in shame. do you throw their jersey in the trash? Of course not! So why in the world would you not vote for your candidate of choice just because the talking heads on the boob tube and the petty pens in the propaganda papers tell you that he is not a viable candidate? To do so is to allow yourself to be manipulated. If your preferred candidate is not included. It is not my intention to exclude a particular person or ideology from this discussion. UFO Her vote against legislation that would prevent courts from hearing cases in which a manufacturer is being sued because of the way in which a third party uses its product clearly demonstrates contempt for the rule of law. those who have been able to garner enough support so that his or her name appears on the ballots of at least half of the states.

Clinton’s support for so-called hate-crimes legislation is an Orwellian attack on individual sovereignty in that people should not be punished for their thoughts. No matter what the odds are against your favorite team. Clinton’s vote to allow the president to go to war without a Congressional Declaration of War was an illegal abdication of her Constitutional duty. regardless of their merits. people like Clinton cannot be counted on. If alien influences are working to infiltrate our halls of power. what is important is an individual’s dedication to Constitutional principles and his intestinal fortitude to maintain that dedication.

Will David Icke and his followers one day be prosecuted for committing hate crimes because they discriminated against entities that they consider reptilian in nature? Her willingness to further entrench us in the United Nations and other world-government schemes is a direct attack on our Declaration of Independence. It does not make sense to discuss individuals who are no longer seeking the job. and leave the playground. the state should not be funding such a trend. At the very least. Hillary Clinton Clinton’s Pre-K for All program is a violation of natural law in that it is unnatural for an entity other than the family to mold a child during the formative years when personality and values are essentially set. since their candidacy is now a moot point. that would leave the Powers That Be plenty of time to take extra steps to hide the truth from the future president.none of them engaged in even an iota of disclosure. and disclosure. Senator Hillary Clinton’s platform represents the epitome of the cradle-to-grave socialist nanny state. Failure to fulfill her oath of office is indicative of a lack of integrity and a sign of her willingness to do what is political expedient. However. Society is a complex and deeply intertwined system of parts.org. For ease of reference. With these points in mind it may behoove a disclosure candidate to keep his views on ufology and Forteanism to himself. I also do not have enough space to perform an exhaustive analysis of each applicant on every issue. it will be much easier for them to impose their will on us through a central governing body then it would be with many sovereign states. and second. information on each of the candidates’ positions is taken from their prospective campaign web sites and OnTheIssues.

Unless disclosure suddenly becomes politically popular. Fortean phenomena. I will demonstrate how individual and seemingly unrelated issues are tied in with each other and to the issues of UFOs. Just because the mainstream media guffaws at UFOs and other Fortean issues like a bunch of immature adolescents does not mean that we in the UFO and Fortean community are going to admit defeat. please accept my apologies. those who are actively seeking office at the time of this writing.

UFO 40 April 2008 Aliens Out of UFO . a man not only made contact with the spirit of his father.618. messages. who analyzed these image for Rinaldi. In essence. but the beings generated an image of the man on the PC monitor that showed what he would look like as an older person far in the future.618 turns up as the result of the measurement of the distance between one’s belly button and one’s feet. in fact. as Rinaldi describes it. you have the measurement of the person from his or her belly button to the person’s feet. and this has been going on through repeated experiments for over five years.618. perhaps. In other words. She believes that the images she is seeing are real because the number that is used to determine the points on the image is the same number that determines measurements on our bodies. Rinaldi says. For Sonia. She is also trying o build a phonemic alphabet for deciphering the sound that’s buried in the transmission she receives. She has determined that all of the points of the image are actually multipliers of what’s known as a Phi number. might have the ability to see all time as a continuum. says that the number 1. As Sonia’s various reports indicate. she calculates the various points of interest on the image by measuring the multipliers of the distance between the points. This number also determines the measurement of one’s fingers. and thus project what they see into our present. the extraterrestrials are signaling to us mathematically. If that’s so. Rinaldi does not stop at just establishing the basis for her images. these different perceptions can result in near blood feuds. according to Brazilian paranormal researcher Sonia Rinaldi is know where to look or know how to find them by deciphering the images in the television snow. she has been experimenting with different human subjects by putting them in front of the monitor and focusing a digital camera on them and then piping the image from that digital camera into a PC monitor. As her explanations of how she gets her images demonstrate. In her own words. All you have to do. without even realizing it? Maybe there really is no real concealment of ETs or extradimensional beings because they exist in the patterns of photons that you receive in-between channels. Then. far from being only limited to this time and place. a coincidence. How can you tell which is which when different people have different perceptions? In our UFO community. in one case. this was an exciting revelation because she interpreted it to mean that these beings. 1. even as you change the channels on your television set. she says. if it is. a number which she says is everywhere in nature. there is active intervention on the part of the receiver to interpret the signal. For example. Photo analysis expert Silvia Rossoni. which is premised on the claim that images of interdimensional beings are showing up in her television signal which she decodes in such a way as to see a mathematical relationship between different points on her screen. allows the beings communicating through the carrier signal to recognize the human subjects and to comment on aspects of the subjects’ lives. she has to first collect the images on an empty television station. Numbers also turn up as results when dividing the number of petals in a flower or the length and breadth of a tree leaf. This may well be the case with Rinaldi’s research. Rinaldi writes that she is thrilled at the prospect at having made contact with creatures not of this dimension who can span time and space. as the images show. sometimes the phenomenon is in the perception of the beholder and not intrinsic to the phenomenon itself. between different groups of beings. and who can contemplate what the possibilities of this communication might be. If you divide the height of a person by the number 1. you are scanning through all kinds of communication. Strange coincidence. using a set of measurements that seem to be universal in their application. Like the experiences and reports of many people who see and photograph glowing orbs. This. extraterrestrials or interdimensional beings are talking to her.What if alien communication is taking place all the time and not just from UFOs but within very conventional channels using traditional methods? What if. then why do they turn up in the images Rinaldi can see in an empty carrier signal? Her answer is that this number itself is kind of a recognition symbol.

This is how we receive the images. The best way to provide photons is using an empty channel from a TV or a piece of colorful cloth so once the contact is established.Whole Cloth? Sonia Rinaldi Sonia Rinaldi has been researching paranormal phenomena for almost twenty years. plus CDs with phonemes and different materials that provide photons in order to be manipulated by beings from other dimensions. She has won many international awards for her work with instrumental transcommunication and is leading projects on extraterrestrial communications along with her team. The sentences are a result of phoneme manipulation in real time. The Extraterrestrial Images After many years of working with the possibility of contact with extraterrestrials through ITC. and it seems that the extraterrestrials need us to provide some kind of audible material so that they can manipulate it as they do with the photons. Basically. software for viewing videos. We have a CD recorded with phonemes that don’t mean anything. and we use the recording technique to make contact to the station. it’s possible to hear sentences that were not on the CD before. This is when the manifestations start to happen. That’s how the voice starts to come out. or the National Agency of Transcommunicators. When we hear the contacts that we have recorded. a video camera. the camera starts to film the creations over cloth or over the reflex of an empty TV channel. we use the computer. She is also the founder of Agência Nacional de Transcomunicadores (ANT). Instrumental Transcommunication: What Is It? Instrumental transcommunication (ITC) is a technique that allows us to make contact with other dimensions through electronic equipment. In many years of research we have realized that extraterrestrials use photons to create images and make themselves visible to us. We UFO April 2008 41 . They also communicate through voice. we have finally managed to prove that these images come from another dimension and that the extraterrestrials send us images under a specific pattern. software for voice recording. It seems that the beings communicate to us through a station that is similar to a radio station.

This is how we know that these images are not the result of random creation of the photon screen from the empty TV channel or the colorful piece of cloth but the result of photonic manipulation by intelligent beings. which is a Phi number. Silvia Rossoni. The Phi number in Extraterrestrial Images These are some of the images we have received through ITC that shows that the images of extraterrestrials also obey this pattern of proportion. It is clear that these beings want to emphasize that they have different abilities than ours and a superior science. and studies have just started. In many many other things in nature. 55 and so on petals. Now it is our task to develop better conditions and technology to receive communications more adequate to their technology and observe from our side new phenomena and possibilities never before dreamed by mankind. The Phi number is also present in the tree leaves: the proportion of the quantity of leaves in the top of the tree compared to the quantity of leaves in the bottom of it.618 Conclusion The Phi number or 1. they seem to point out that a communication with unknown entities from unknown origin might be possible.gathered fifty images and had them analyzed by an expert. which is precisely the nose line.618.083 divided by 1. the Phi number is always there. On the right. the contour for study was done by the architect Silvia Rossoni.618 is everywhere in nature.942 which is precisely the mouth line. For example.618 we will have the measure from umbilicus to feet. but they can speak as well. 5. 8. dividing the height of a person by 1. 13.

to the abduction scenarios. They may well be tricks set up by aliens playing guessing games and often not guessing correctly. In this respect, MJ-12 could be a rather naff Matrix joke with which to set a thousand human hares achasing for pure amusement. Mechanical science is ill-equipped to deal with humour, entertainment, and such cultural deceptions; it sees the alien as a clever scientist, a bourgeois affectation if ever there was. Evolution is a dangerous and troublesome process with endless mistakes and blind alleys within it. All is hazard and uncertainty. There will be areas into which aliens have not ventured, areas in which they have failed, if only because any biomechanical framework lives and dies by risky and experimental systems analysis. This may involve guessing-games as how to trick system A into thinking it is system B in order to penetrate system C in order to rob its identity. This means that a living process can control and change an evolving agenda in the manner of phishing. Both the alien transistor and MJ-12 may fall into this category as stage-set signals for manoeuvres beyond our mental horizons. Certainly aliens will live and die by images rather than the objective facts of the human military-industrial world. Frequently, we ourselves use both our science and technology for such entertainment and guessing-games. In this area we ourselves become exhausted, careless, forgetful, and very often bored and angry. Our media and advertising programs control us in this way. There is no reason to think that aliens will avoid this mental consumerism, and they may be using ourselves as pawns in all kinds of software modelling involving many levels of belief manipulation. Even in our own world, honest mistakes—never mind cheating and criminal activity—cause much confusion. Attempts to cover up misbehavior and crime make the situation even more complex with respect to what aliens may be doing to us, and what in turn we may be doing to them, if only boring them stiff in turn, which could be conceived as a null game. We have also to consider what is the alien equivalent to our own experience of the rapid obsolescence of technology. Military, media, and domestic sectors are now somewhat reflective of one another’s technological requirements. There is already much confusion in regard to the definition of a weapon. In the techgnosis frame, a weapon may vary from a tank to a TV program. The whole mass-suggestion complex of consumerUFO

ism and advertising could indeed be considered as weaponry in the sense that changed minds are far more useful than battlefield corpses. As distinct from a corpse, the changed mind can make more films, images, narratives, and scripted adventures in the manner of a metaphysical hatchery. A human being as such a program-absorbing meme-breeder, is far more useful alive than dead.

Mistakes, Morons, and Mars
Whether tying a shoelace or causing intercontinental war, life is always going wrong. This chronic instability is a cause of lifesaving humor to the human race, without which human beings would be mere ticks on a biological clock. Humor can make every single one of us look absolutely ridiculous. We are so chastened in order to be mentally re-birthed. There is absolutely no need to think that alien culture will be, or is, any different. They may slip on banana-skins and be as comically outrageous as are many human beings. To lay therefore a straight line on aliens is as dangerous as assuming they are all equally intelligent and all po-faced as is any serious researcher. The thought that aliens might not be completely intent on giving us spiritual enlightenment or even know what such a thing is will come as a relief to some earthlings but not to others. That any alien indeed might be even more ridiculous than ourselves is a thought accepted by almost nobody at all, especially those dour commissars of Old Ufology with rows of pens in their top pockets who talk about reality as it were a set of production statistics from Walter Ulbricht’s rusty-industrial East Germany. It may turn out that a laugh from Britney Spears is considered by aliens to be far more significant and important than any database from an over-earnest industrial class. We must prepare ourselves to consider that contact may be intellectually disappointing in this respect. 45

In this sense, the films Morons from Outer Space (1985), the TV series Alf (1986-1990), Alien from LA (1988), Mars Attacks (1996), and Gremlins (1984) are probably better at expressing what contact may mean than Old Ufologists stuck with the factversus-fiction battles within their old mechanical-industrial selves. Daft-as-a-brush events of course are not allowed within the bourgeois-scientific spectrum, since the universe—and hence God—could not possibly be silly. Sensible footwear is the order of the day within ultraconservative Victorian Station Masters of a ufological yesteryear. In that the characters of these cartoon films are already in our heads and impossible to remove, the aliens are here already. The aliens are a process. Their images in our heads are already networking and there is nothing we can do about it. At the moment they are neither fact nor fiction, but liminal. We know they are coming. We are expecting them. Like Plato’s cave-shadows, reality is a moveable feast along a scale of psychosocial allowances, ranging between the limits of absolute fact and absolute fiction. In this sense we must drop the idea of absolute mechanical distinctions and look at highly unstable media forms representing new concepts of matter and information. Such memes are becoming the quasi-material base of our burgeoning Entertainment State, where, for better or for worse, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton are far more important than the coke-oven statistics of yesteryear. Jung’s words in Memories, Dreams, Reflections (Vintage Books, 1965) come to mind concerning media: “The symbol becomes intercalated into the cycle of corporeal changes.” In Old ufology however, media does not appear to have arrived. The result is that apart from Corso, Roswell is usually investigated as some kind of traffic accident.

confronts us with absurdity. As an increasingly common experience, it is a holistic flux of culture, society, media, and yes, God forbid! our Entertainment State. In this respect, Old Ufology must be deconstructed from bottom to top. It must transfer from boiler-house analyses to a new age where transcendental experiences, defined as things which transcend the common fact, are seen to consist of holistic components. In these elements, all information is media, and both language and culture are constellated as advertising systems. In such systems, objective solidity is the most perfect prime-time performance of all. All of these reference frames and psychosocial screens are essentially elaborate, fuzzy play systems. Alien contact will certainly entail meeting a multiple display of such systems. Scientists, who are absolutely hopeless when faced with humour, absurdity, or raw human experience, do not understand that in this respect, the idea of Truth in terms of hard-wired practicality will be almost meaningless as it regards alien mentality, or indeed any other mentality. The system-noise of trash, waste, and fantasies is functional in such essentially anarchic multimedia systems. However, Mind conceived as a terrible mess and not as a set of grocer’s rules is not a politically correct view. Isolated from a holistic context, the UFO experience is meaningless. However, that trading world, from which almost all practical scientists come, wants what it has bought and paid for: a stable order of things. Very few good Protestant scientists would enjoy finding themselves investigating the ass-end of a declining Howdy Do-Dee show. If we consider such a noisy holistic view in terms of a cargocult model, then we shall not only get any human/alien interface in a better perspective, we will also get our first idea of how such an interface with alien intelligence might function.

The very first ships to enter the Pacific were soon full of dead men.

wondering gaze of natives whose tribal life had been static for thousands of years. This is a good model of we now call contact between communities whose cultures were thousands of years apart. The curiosity, the misunderstanding, the lack of a framework of interpretation all contributed to the fear of what to natives were perplexing abstractions. These are typical reactions within what we ourselves now call the UFO experience. There are now catalogues of thousands of such experiences in the last fifty years alone, and all of them exhibit similar kinds of native reactions in a modern context. Thus, the first experience of what we now call contact between human communities on very different time scales of culture and technology was one of almost complete fragmentation. It is unlikely that natives saw any kind of significance regarding what curiosities may have been noticed and picked up from the shore. A few may have wondered about a curiously shaped iron fragment, a piece of turned and slotted wood, or a shredded fragment of woven rope, just as we wonder about Dr. Roger Leir’s alleged alien implants. According to Corso, this is the way in which we came across transistors. They were detritus from the Roswell wreckage. By analogy, this is a very strong argument which put ourselves in the native position. Those South Pacific islanders who first saw live men as distinct from dead were in for a surprise. The ships that entered these distant waters were exclusively pirate vessels crewed by criminals fleeing from Western navies for every reason under the sun. They could not enter ports, they had no supply lines, they were forever on the run, and they used desperate and murderous methods to survive. The first reaction of natives at seeing such desperados—both white and black—pulling ashore in long boats was violence, mainly sponsored by panic and fear. The crews, racked by scurvy, dysentery, and starvation, were desperate for water, vegetables, and fruit. According to 1719 voyager George Shelvoke, the crews soon worked out a scheme to ensure safe landing. They fashioned fantastic masks and clothing, got into boats fully armed, and screaming and howling like banshees, they made for shore. Such men were anything but holy beings come to offer the natives the glory of their Western culture and the holiness of their heart’s affections. We can imagine a mad cook, a psychopathic bosun, a halfdead coxswain, a murdering mate, and a few young palsied matelots with scrofula, fleas, and sore bottoms. The alien equivalent is to such a menagerie defies imagination! Terrified at seeing such things, entire villages fled UFO

into the bush to create fantastic stories of magical beings with incredible devices voyaging in wondrously rigged ships. Thus were created legends of the space ships of demons, space not being so much in the sky, but instead represented by the limitless and quite impenetrable horizon. At times, gift-offerings of food and fresh water were left for the gods, and natives took good note that these were eagerly consumed before the holy ones sailed away into the far horizon, with not a few captured slaves—men, women, and children— aboard. There were also a considerable number of dead bodies left behind, bodies of both the pirates and those natives who had ventured too close to the aliens. Such men and ships were not to return for centuries, leaving natives with mysteries beyond all conception. That the gods in their highly sophisticated ships appeared to be somewhat desperate, ragged, quite lost, and even frightened was baffling to natives. That some were also sick and ill and obviously limited in many other respects illustrated the differences between time, image, and technological achievement. The same questions are asked today: If the aliens could do one thing so well, why not another? Such mysteries were profound. Nothing made sense. Thus primitive people, quite naked under the sun; without the wheel, tools, writing, and with a very crude language, experienced therefore the full dimension of UFO mythology in terms of culture shock: abductions, fantastic appearances, disreputable and often murderous behavior, and a technology which appeared to be quite magical on one hand and quite useless on another. In the native mind such experiences were impossible to grasp and define in terms of any kind of unified field.

perienced any kind of exactly repeatable sequence of any kind, in either nature or life. In addition they heard the crackle of radios and early recorded sound on portable wind-up gramophones.

Media Interpreting Media
We have only to extrapolate the Corso and Adamski stories alone into this framework of multiple confusions to see how the whole mess was soon lit up with awe and religious fervor. The projected cargo fantasies of the natives piled misinterpretations piled upon misconceptions and became integrated into holy tribal ancestral architecture rather like the Christian Orders of Angels. That the cargo-gods had a similar tribal architecture themselves was a nice consideration heavily masked by the alien-gods material success. In this respect, this situation is not described adequately by the simple equations of fact transforming into fantasy. The cargo culture might indeed be in the grip of untold fantasies, but then so were the young Western sailors of the time in terms of the mass media they had begun to absorb: films, advertising, radio shows, and burgeoning consumerism. This two-state transfer makes for a very interesting alchemical analogy. In this situation, we have junk systems transforming into other junk systems. This unique mental traffic replaces all thought of the fact-versus-fiction axis of the old analogue world. The idea of a religion founded on junk in the mental gut is a frightening concept to many people of religious convictions in the West. Could our own so-called enlightenment have been inspired by alien detritus, some of which might have given a few last feeble bleeps before fading away to the last Reject Store in the sky? Could this kind of mutual image-absorption be an historical process still active?

became therefore like a newspaper under heavy rain: bits of stories disintegrated rapidly, the interrelation of the textual fabric became increasingly disorganised, the gaps in stories filled by guesses, dreaming, and imagination. Continuous sustained contact between the two World Wars was yet another experience. It destroyed all native ideas of time as conceived: Time became a dramatic continuum full of spectacular events, staged within what appeared to be within an endless sequence of profound stimulations and excitements beyond all compass. This was an experience of many Matrix fractals in collision; again, rather like the absurd elements within the modern UFO experience. After the World War I, the first iron-hulled steamships arrived in the South Pacific. Lit from stem to stern by electric light, making a great noise, and pouring white steam from huge funnels, this must have been a tremendous experience for natives and was equivalent to seeing a sudden change in the technology of the gods, whose traditional sailing ships of course were very different to the steamers. In return for work unloading ships, natives were given knives, axes, nails, and cloth in addition to new food plants. These gifts from the gods became cargo, if only because the crews of ships were heard to use this word many times. It was quickly noticed that whilst the visitors got unlimited cargo, the natives got very little, and only in return for back-breaking physical labor. Since natives had no idea of any kind of a resources spectrum, cargo appeared to come in great quantities from nowhere. It was therefore magical. Reinforcing the idea of magic were stills and shaky frames from cameras. For the first time, the natives saw themselves at work and play. Immediately, the interpretation was that they were seeing themselves in other dimensions of existence. This was a belief which whites found surprisingly difficult to deny or explain! The repeatable runs of film-frames also caused much philosophical speculation as regards time, space, and technology. As we shall see in the case of canned food, the natives had not ex48

We can build yet another level of complexity into our model. In the 1950s many of the sons and daughters of the servicemen of World War II got involved in the New Age movement. This meant that they were as interested in aboriginal native perception of things as the cargo cult societies were interested in our own mysterious thought processes. This New Age generation rejected their own culture based in the main on those products of scientific rationalism which conversely were so magical to the cargo cults. There was—and still is—intriguing symmetry here. Natives were anxious to leave their junk behind; the New Agers were anxious to pick it up, gaze at it in wonder searching for spiritual inspiration. Two eyes gazed therefore at their own junk in wonder; two seeing eyes trying to perceive the secrets of the other’s cargo. Did the lost spirituality become for New Agers their own cargo? To answer these questions, we have to deconstruct the entire theory of Intelligent Deign. How many such seeing eyes of this type exist beyond the natives, humanity, and aliens themselves is a good question. Since the values of our own Western society are now a limitless, media-play of little worth, does our own junk in turn fascinate some alien? In this sense Old ufology based on simple mechanical differentiation of fact from fiction is useless in the face of such interactive metaphysical and cultural complexity. UFO

This is what holistic means. because in all likelihood he will equate the UFO with the Mustang and the Thunderbolt just as the dead pilot was actually shot down by the mock-Zero. The double trick is that the film crew themselves do not understand such paths in any case. Western society has its own cargo dreamtime called intellectual consumerism. Let us imagine that our native sees himself imagining and wondering and questioning on the many flat-screen monitors within the film unit. If we build further into our model a theory of fallibilities and mistakes. he would smell fuel. This is the true Matrix. This kind of thinking is suitable to an age of media where every single stage of perception is rooted—some say contaminated— in wall-to wall performances for which there is no possible offswitch. perhaps back in the thatched huts. and ourselves. the islander. Supposing the pilot is killed. Like ourselves indeed. Perhaps for both the alien. and the situation becomes completely liminal. The body of the pilot and his injured observer on a stretcher are both put momentarily alongside plastic models of dead and apparently severely injured Marines on stretchers. then we have a reasonable degree of sophistication emerging involving a model of alien/human interaction. Departure Eventually of course. outputs. hardwired lines such as trains and wires s t r u n g between poles. Explanations help us to get some sleep at night. Many cases have occurred in which islanders have asked Western folk to explain things. This is that pantomime of facts and fictions and many things in between struggling upwards to get to that media Valhalla called Prime Time. who won’t be bothered much. Now supposing one of the film aircraft actually crashed near where the film shooting is taking place. When this is attempted they are suspicious and think they are being lied to. our film crew. as has happened. the tribal seer is laughing his head off. The film crew are now in the position of our native. In the morning they are gone. he would see women. will sail away never to return. with large and small robots everywhere moving between the living. and surely we do not blame them! O n e thing is certain: We have to discard many of our late Vi c t o r i a n ideas rooted in inputs. If any aliens are reading this. Perhaps he knows. education.

Warren When the Sci Fi Channel taped a pilot with Coast to Coast AM’s host George Noory. planning to use the video for an ongoing series titled Our Alien Planet. As you can see. loosely based on the book that I coauthored with Sean Casteel recently and which is available through Filament Books or directly from said coauthor.BrownMountainLights. He is a one-man workhorse and deserves untold credit for his continuing research and his ability to reach a public fascinated by his determination to probe the heart of the unknown. I decided to set up a camera. Josh became interested in stories of the 52 fleeting lights when he was still quite young. SpeakingOfStrange.

In fact. NBC and CBS networks and affiliates He is also the founder of the League of Energy Materialization and Unexplained Phenomena Research (LEMUR).com. To be honest. The show also has a huge internet fan base that allows it to be heard over hill and dale. we covered a variety of subjects. We can share a beer—I drink rum or vodka myself—a corned-beef sandwich and shoot the breeze for hours. Warren started doing everything when he was knee-high to a tadpole. the program has become the most listened-to in its prime-time slot. 2003). but I focused most of my attention on Josh’s investigation of the Brown Mountain Lights. He has worked with the Discovery Channel. he hopped onto the lecture circuit with Jim Marrs and Nick Redfern. Because of Josh’s unique vocal talents and his ability to find the best bizarre stories of the week. the Travel Channel. having produced the 2001 feature Inbred Rednecks and the short Night in a Haunted House. and has developed sensitive electronic equipment to attempt to validate his and the team’s findings.The Man on B Joshua P. a popular radio show heard every Saturday night for three hours on WWNC in Asheville. Since then. He wisely picked North Carolina’s prodigal son Joshua P. Josh always seems to have fresh ideas and a public willing and eager to hear what he has to say. He is also an independent film maker. Noory knew he had to pick an excellent guest or two in order to sell the show.

It’s a team of people who have various backgrounds and we all go together to places where something strange has been reported and divide the task of gathering data and try to determine if indeed there is something we can measure or document that is inexplicable. So you and I met in the bar. and we talked B-movies. Beckley: Now. So when I really started taking it seriously is when I started UFO Interview by Timothy Green Beckley my team LEMUR. So Josh. So far outside of Syracuse that we can’t even tell you what the name of the town was. And we’re going to interview you for our continuing series of videos called Our Alien Planet. And because of that. Warren: So it seemed natural to eventually compile them together into a book. Warren: Oh. and my first article came out around Halloween. by admitting to these experiences. and I was so impressed by that that I said I want to come back to this house with as many cameras as I can find and not leave until I shoot some of this. Sort of poltergeist-type activity. a lot to lose. I got a job working for the local newspaper. no one had ever written a book of actual ghost stories. Beckley: There you go. there are at least two or three that stand out in my mind. it was held in a little catering hall. And Josh. you and I actually met under somewhat peculiar circumstances that had nothing to do with the paranormal. and few people attended. not realizing that you were one of the greatest parapsychologists and UFO researchers. You hear the meter squeal as it picks up some electromagnetic field. And here we are now at nineteen or twenty. so it must be a melting pot of the upstate New York area. and then the meter actually moves. how did you become a ghost hunter? Warren: Well. what is the case that was most convincing. And it was a sweltering day. I interviewed a chief of police and judges and doctors. I started by writing fictional ghost stories and other spooky tales when I was just a teenager. broadcast every Saturday night on the internet and on radio station— Warren: [Imitates radio announcer voice:] News Radio 570. a tri-field natural EM meter sitting in the corner of the room. that proves to you that there was something paranormal going on? Warren: Well. I saw a little ceramic dove hanging on the wall more or less explode off of the wall. Beckley: Of course. and I certainly did not know that you were a ghost hunter until I found you many months later in a used book store. and we ended up getting some footage which is actually freely available on our website of a meter that weighs about a pound. fifteen years old. there was a great response. In fact. it seemed natural to write a story about places in the area that are supposedly haunted. they had no idea. But anyway. I’ve been a guest on the show on and off over the years and it’s a wonderful program. We both also make movies. All the pieces hit the floor. the first time I ever saw something that really struck me in an impressive way was objects flying off walls at a house in South Carolina. people who had nothing to gain and if anything. Of course. a kind of B-movie festival held outside of Syracuse. the famed ghost hunter and expert on the Brown Mountain Lights of North Carolina and host of Speaking of Strange. Warren. For example. You and I are B-movie makers. I started out too when I was thirteen. right in front of me. Isn’t that weird? Beckley: So we missed an opportunity to talk about all this stuff. and the more I interviewed people who had experienced the paranormal. so when some of these articles came out. And you have made a movie that you’re proud of called Inbred Rednecks. And oddly enough. about fourteen. Warren: At the time. So. The team went back. I’m proud of it? Beckley: And we were both at a horror conference. telling me about other places I should investigate. WWNC. I think that President Clinton went to that same town about two weeks later. People really enjoyed them. Although surprisingly enough. which stands for the League of Energy Materialization and Unexplained Phenomena Research. if I remember. sending me letters. And we did. the Talk of the Mountains.n Brown Mountain Beckley: We are speaking with Joshua P. 53 April 2008 . the more convinced I became that maybe there was something more to all of the stories rather than some just purely subjective experience like an hallucination or their imagination. Beckley: And little did they know that you were fifteen. Warren: Yeah. started calling me.

I would say I’ve been to between five hundred and a thousand places that are supposedly haunted. Beckley: That kind of sounds like the UFO that supposedly landed in Bentwaters. I was actually about to leave. So the second time I was at her house.” She left and called me.” So I had my digital camera around my neck. You have ghostly ships. but my definition of a ghost is some paranormal aspect of a physical form and/or mental presence that appears to exist apart from the original physical form. In other cases. two perpendicular lines of motion. It was amazing. Warren: Well.or some might say was knocked. And it wasn’t until it began to dim that I realized. and I snapped a photograph of this form just before it disappeared. I need to take a picture. really. And when I withdrew my hand. it sort of popped back into place. Sometimes it would look to her more distinctly like a human. which has some sort of swirls and curls. So that was impressive. I guess that’s the question. an imprint. I was in the attic of a house. she woke up at 4:30 in the morning and this thing was in the bed with her. And that word appears is integral. I touched a ghost. For example. I was just face to face with this thing. it could be something that is a remnant of the past. It was very cold in the middle. So I don’t know that that was the spirit of a dead person. Beckley: Well. because I should have had all my meters up there taking—but no. and it made the hair stand up on the back of my hand. I was completely mesmerized. I was up in the attic with another researcher. forward and then up on its side. So she started seeing this thing appearing in her bedroom. it had panels. She even called 911 the first time she saw this figure. “Screw this! I’m getting out of here. Warren: Yeah. Now. Beckley: Well. and when my hand broke the surface of this mist. She was going back and forth debating whether or not something could be done to stop the activity. and it was three-dimensional. it had facets almost like a gem. Finally. Beckley: We’re talking more about something that looks like an object rather than a disembodied spirit. Do you know the case in England? A very famous case where the military— Warren: Yeah. How did you touch the ghost? Warren: Since this is the only time that I’ve ever seen something like this. and that’s when I agreed to come and investigate her house. because again I was just mesmerized. as well as the horses pulling them. the glowing thing. thinking that someone had broken into her house. and it frightened her and she wanted to move. The young lady who lived there contacted me because she had been seeing this misty form floating around the house. So she said. we’d been up there for a little while. Was this what we would call a disembodied spirit? Is a ghost a disembodied spirit? Not necessarily. the facets kind of shifted and rippled a little bit around my hand. and I’ll never forget—one thing that was so strange about it—was that unlike smoke. and he and I were about three feet away from each other. Beckley: You touched it? Warren: Yeah. I’ve never seen a structure quite like it. I don’t know that there is necessarily a way that you can get rid of a ghost. although maybe you did at the time. “Oh. And the other researcher said. “Josh. stage coaches. So it started to dim after about twenty or thirty seconds. We were looking at this from two opposite sides. but still you can see it. And I was actually in retrospect wasting valuable time. look!” I turned around. So I reached out and touched it. So I don’t have a photo that shows it as distinctly as it looked to us. we have ghosts of inanimate objects as well. let’s not run away from this so quickly. but I think the number one would have to be the one and only time I have actually seen an apparitional form with my naked eyes. because it shows you that you might not always be able to differentiate seeing a ghost from a hallucination. Or in some cases it could simply be an atmoUFO April 2008 . Both of us were. my Gosh. It was a patch that was maybe two to three feet. I’d like to go and study that case a little more now that you mention that possible connection. and was even able to touch it. These flat panels that were still sort of 54 shifting around. And right there between us was this blue-gray mist. I’m just there to try to understand as much as possible about the activity. I am not a ghost buster or an exorcist. just floating in the air. So I reached out to touch it.

the operators of the UFOs understand how to manipulate matter and energy. But how did you first find out about the Brown Mountain Lights? 55 April 2008 . They don’t want to talk about it because they say. And these phenomena seem to be good examples of rare glimpses of things that we might someday master technologically ourselves. we have to understand what happens to the human body being subjected to those kinds of forces for that period of time. And learning more about what a human is and how a human is composed in space/time and how that can be affected by traveling through space/time in extreme ways all relate to these questions of exactly what is reality. I guess you would call it. Have you seen evidence of that? Warren: I’ve seen it in books. he had boxes full of giant crystals which were used as some energizing device or something by the aliens. So you can sort of see a connection there between understanding more about UFOs and understanding ghosts. or had a base at least. we think of it according to that definition. then it seems perfectly reasonable that they have done so and may even be controlling us to some extent to the benefit of their future world. if they do indeed demonstrate some of the qualities that people talk about—attaining very high speeds. beginning thousands of years ago. I was down there myself many years ago with Jim Moseley and Allen Greenfield and quite a few other individuals. whether or not they themselves are conscious or being operated by conscious beings. Beckley: So it’s time travel? Warren: I think there’s a great possibility that we’re looking at some time travel here. There’s an interesting connection there between UFOs and ghosts because whatever these UFOs are. or sort of materializing and then vanishing—whatever they are or wherever they’re from. you could say. So once you go down that road. And to convince us of the truth of his stories. Certainly. UFOs could be considered ghosts. You’re the world’s leading authority on the Brown Mountain Lights. yes. of course. which is a phenomenon that’s been seen for hundreds of years in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. well. and a little man under the counter. well. But that still doesn’t mean that it’s not the case.spheric phenomenon that isn’t understood. But Ralph claimed that he was in contact on a regular basis with the beings who resided. but one might make the case that we are being controlled by people from the future and there’s nothing we can do about it. Beckley: I guess this is also a ghostly phenomenon. They probably are here. Or some people theorize that there may be proof of time travelers going back into the ancient past. then we can safely presume they probably have done so. Okay. Because at some level. So for the time being. And if indeed those are valid fossils. we don’t know whether he was a pygmy or something from another planet. Beckley: So UFOs could be ghosts by your definition? Warren: Absolutely. then something comparable to a human. I would say ghostly. if we send men to Mars using linear propulsion and a linear path. I know that Brad Steiger has UFO written a lot about some of the fossilized tennis shoe prints or spark plugs that are found in layers of rock. the only other question is will it ever be possible for a human to actually time travel into the past? And if not a human. And we staked out the Brown Mountain Lights. For one thing. so be it. and it’s just too convenient. We didn’t see too much that was strange—maybe one flash of light off in the woods which may or may not have been a Brown Mountain Light. And that’s frustrating for a lot of people. Beckley: Now there is archeological evidence that either some other race occupied the planet at some time in the distant past. Maybe it’s sort of a paranoid mindset. what’s the point? If people from the future are coming back into the past. or at least they have been here and may even be manipulating events now to the benefit of their future world. anything is possible. then you can explain everything that way. Because if you can master using matter and energy enough to utilize it for a vehicle. For all we know. Because if ever. So knowing that time travel is feasible. ever in the infinite future some intelligent being is going to figure out how to time-travel back into the past. whether they came from another dimension or another planet. as well as considering that even with basic space travel. It seems almost like at every locale of this nature you always find one or two individuals who have some interesting story to tell. before there were supposed to be humans being here. Because religion is the earliest form of government. Or perhaps by himself to entice people to buy his little booklet for a buck and a quarter and a bottle of Diet Coke. So if indeed beings are ever going to learn how to travel into the past. the Bible and all of these other ancient texts may have actually been written by future time travelers who were trying to change our morals and ethics in some way. a little shack. the physicality of the manifestation is irrelevant. inside the mountain. But we did have the opportunity to meet with this gentleman who was the local contactee by the name of Ralph Lael who had a little convenience store. then also that applies perhaps to understanding more about what a human is and whether or not there are aspects of ourselves that can still remain once this physical layer is shed. We know that time is a flexible thing and that a clock in your basement runs slower than a clock in your attic because the one in your basement is closer to the earth’s gravitational field. then I think it is a wonderful example of the fact that we may reach a point when people are frequently traveling back thousands of years ago. we know that time travel is possible.

just came blazing past him and almost ran over him. or most of the lights that are considered Brown Mountain Lights. I’ve also talked to other people. And even at Wiseman’s View. I was talking to a hiker who told me that one day he was out walking around and saw something shining in the nearby field. In fact. So it’s almost like in some cases. that might be some motivation for the government. even. who have told me about weird military activity that may or may not be related to the lights. there was a popular bluegrass song that was sung in the 1950s. some kind of all-terrain vehicle. I’d always heard legends growing up regarding the Brown Mountain Lights. And so when I was around twelve or thirteen. He said. And he said. it’s certainly a bit much for coincidence. Recently there is a private group of people who have done a festival for the past couple of years. I also know for a fact that the military has been working on using plasma for weapons for quite some time. It’s kind of odd. there is a local cafeteria there that claims that once in a while they get these big contracts to feed hundreds of men who are related to the military. And so it may be that the military learned a long time ago that Brown Mountain was producing plasmas and has been studying them and nature in order to determine the best way to condense it into some sort of technology. There must have been some hole. especially when you consider that I’ve talked to a lot of people there. but not at the overlook that I usually go to—the 181 Overlook. I talked to a hunter who told me that he was way out in the middle of the woods. they intentionally do not talk about it. “Where did this thing come from?” And he walked a little farther down the trail and the trail and the roadway ended. a Brown Mountain Lights festival.Warren: Well. They never say what it’s for and they never see where it goes. He thought it must have gone inside the mountain. my team and I concluded that the lights are most likely.” My father. and he noticed that it had been painted shut. Texas with the Marfa Lights. having lived in western North Carolina my whole life. Here’s another good one. but he just thought that was odd. I tried to get the tourism commission to work with me one time about maybe a festival or something. So. locals. And all of a sudden this government vehicle. They say that it inspires vandalism. but he noticed that at the spot where he thought something was shining. thought he was pretty much alone. And all they do is show up with a couple of trucks of all this food. he said the gate had recently been painted. sort of a hit in our region. Because he didn’t get the impression it was going to fly away or dematerialize. Supposedly there’s a plaque somewhere on the parkway that has been recently put up. there is a plaque that has all the mountains there and points out the names of the mountains and there’s nothing related to the Brown Mountain Lights on this plaque. he couldn’t find out what was shining. 2001. Which is odd. something metallic. when he finally worked his way back to the gate for the road. but the world of officialdom doesn’t really want to acknowledge much about the lights. and they meet some MPs at a gate and give them the food. my parents took me and my sister over to the overlook. He could tell that the gate had not been opened. “Where did it go? Where did it come from?” Then. But the types of stories I’m talking about are stories from hunters. are likely plasmas which are being naturally produced by the mountain. Of course. He couldn’t tell how deep it went. Beckley: Is that plaque still there? Warren: No. And when he made his way over to the spot. he realized there was a lot of light in the area of the field where he had earlier seen this strange shiny spot. let me start by saying that after fifteen years of Camping on Brown Mountain to study the Lights. So he went back over there UFO 56 April 2008 . because I have talked to some of the people in Burk County before about putting more signs up. But they were not interested in doing that. Because the mountain has some special geologic and atmospheric conditions. because I heard they were doing that in Marfa. he used to talk about it quite a bit because he liked the song. For example. called “The Ballad of the Brown Mountain Lights. I’ll give you some examples. camping up there and getting permits from the forest service and bringing all kinds of scientists up there. but they don’t want to. there was a little hole in the ground. So this vehicle appeared out of nowhere and then disappeared. So later that evening when he was about to go back home. But if not.

They were shooting at something else at that same spot. On To say that they’re a plasma doesn’t necessarily imply that the other hand. I’ve seen the lights numerous times. for example. He thought.lowed the lights and whenever they get to where they think ma theory that you speak of is that I’ve talked to a number of they’re going to be close to them. that someone sees the lights like that. So if there was a plasma coming from the I just want to make one more comment about the lights having ground there. It may be that—well. Beckley: Was this in the daytime? Warren: Well. I don’t know. as well. And they were examining something at this particular spot. But a plasma that appears in the daytime phenomena. imagination—maybe there are UFOs that are coming to Brown I talked to one guy who said he touched a light. it shouldn’t be. Now I’ve never seen something at that spot. And he turned and hauled ass. if you produces so much energy it also triggers other more paranormal believe that the earth itself is an intelligent. years. the shooting was happening at night. And it’s possible that the military sees that as a conflict if that’s indeed true. And one would assume that plasma is Warren: Well. it was about the size of a basketball or a little larger and that it plays into the dynamics of their craft. But how that relates to all these military have seen a light close up. then it would certainly be each other.That would appear to be some intelligence beyond— hind these balls of light. And he walked Beckley: Ralph Lael was right. “Huh! This is weird. If you’re standing I’ve blinked lights at them and all that and I’ve never gotten a between each of them. and I UFO April 2008 57 . They must be looking at what I was looking at earlier. and for all I know they were shooting at aliens. and they describe what appears to be an intelligence be. First off. if there were one. patterns and correlations could be gleaned from it.and now all of these government At Wiseman's View. it might also look like a shin. It may be when you have a place that naturally tion of our physical composition. So. Beckley: I know people who have claimed that they have folBeckley: The only thing that takes me away from the plas. That’s just a descripall the activity. He said they weren’t shooting at him. which could be explained by plasmas having an more complex than anything we know how to understand. And so there may be an alien presence there him. So I would need to see that to try to see what then vice-versa. the light will suddenly appear people there back in my travels and on the telephone over the behind them or would move without seeming to have moved. So I don’t know if maybe someone is seeing the lights is actually rematerializing in a different position or something and reading something into that. But we can’t be sure that they don’t have intelligence. that doesn’t mean it accounts for a solid means they have no intelligence.intelligence.and one of them will dim while the other one brightens and teractive behavior. because if you are walking in an not intelligent. because they also are utilizing these natural forces. but it definitely also contributes to the electrical part. electromagnetic field that naturally balances off other fields. with their headlights turned on. area where you have these layers that are discharging the enWarren: No. He didn’t think they even knew he was there. living thing. maneuver in a certain way—because the lights do interact with because if they have intelligence. like a fairy or a form of some sort. you might have two lights never seen personally what I would consider an intelligent in. But let’s just say—use our anything like that. We have video footage of this happening. and I’ve through the layer. it seems like it can actually transfer as well. He said it was the most terrifying racket he had ever heard. you might think that one single light response. just because many of these lights manifest in they have no intelligence any more than saying that a human is a form that we call plasma. I have some thoughts on that ergy creating the plasmas. He said Mountain. Beckley: Were they shooting at a plasma? Warren: I don’t know why they would shoot a plasma. and then he said all of a sudden three or four people just let loose with machine guns. overlooking Brown Mountian vehicles were in a big formation.” And he started to walk over and ask them. hovering about three feet over the ground. it depends.

In fact. to see it. oh. And there is a greater temperature difference between night and day in the fall than at other times of year. brownmountainlights. when I met him in person one time and asked him to debate this in a gentlemanly way. there actually are a lot of scientists who are interested. And once you get to the point where you can kind of predict when something is going to happen.com. Beckley: Now why do you think that there seems to be such a negative attitude among the scientific community or an attempt to sweep all this under the carpet? Because if it were true. for example. so why should I trust them? It’s a matter of putting the blinders on. but then he’ll go around otherwise and say to people that we didn’t know what we’re talking about. And I want people to go and take the same equipment that we used and go there and see for themselves and document it for themselves. he wouldn’t do it. However. I say. It’s in the public domain. Also.” There were all these condescending remarks made about me and about our organization. go to this house on this street at this time on this date and Old Man Withers will come from the closet. it produces the activity. Warren: And I tend to think that the earth is a living thing. would this not tell us a little bit more about our planet. I think it’s just the people who don’t want to go out and do what we have done for themselves. at this point in time. you have a handful of people out there usually who know very little about the phenomenon and don’t want to take it seriously just because for so many years it was called ghosts. there are no Brown Mountain Lights. You don’t have to take my word for it. Every piece of equipment. yeah. that’s when you’re getting close to really solving the mystery. I’ve gone up there. the leaves are off the trees in the fall and you have better visibility. Dan Canton from Appalachian State University was always the guy that the newspapers would go to and have that one fellow who’s going to say that everything we say is bullshit. We made the cover of a science journal. And almost like he has discovered this stuff. 58 And so for the longest time he said. And our work has been applauded by the Navy Physics Laboratory. you know. at least some aspect that does bear consciousness. You’re better off if you go looking for them in late October or early November because it seems that at night when the mountain cools and contracts. They find that it’s easier to simply say. every date we went up there. what the conditions were. So. “Here is this report of exactly what we did. And all of the variables involved in something like this—what we think is a natural phenomenon on Brown Mountain—makes it difficult to tell with 100 percent certainty. Tim. The four factors right now are number one: time of year. This is a meaUFO April 2008 . In fact. When it comes to ghosts. with a physicist from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. sort of do actually— Beckley: That’s the concept of the book we did: Our Alien Planet. well. He won’t ask me any questions when I give him the opportunity. I don’t know of anybody who can really intelligently debate the fact that these are not possibly plasmas. Or there’s a story about it being a slave searching for his master because the master never came back. The Brown Mountain Lights—we’re quite good—but it’s still a very complicated system because of Mother Nature. but I think it certainly is possible that we’ll reach that point. Number two is if the KP Index is a five or above. if we ever get to the point where I can tell you. So it may very well be some aspect of the earth trying to communicate. what we found. as well. so to speak. These were spirits of Native Americans who were battling. One guy who was a critic of ours for a long time named Dr. we’ve given it to the world. it’s a little bit frustrating that there are people who—I don’t ask anybody to believe me. It’s just an old ghost story.” Because for fifteen years we took meticulous notes. “Oh.” Then that’s when you’ll know that ghosts are truly real. Beckley: So are you able to predict? A ghost or any of those manifestations? Warren: Oh. All of this is free on our website. Now even he has begun telling people that he thinks there’s a good chance that these are plasmas like ball lighting. It’s all about being able to predict when these things are going to appear. Science is designed to help us solve the simplest problems first. Or if not communicating. these guys are just ghost hunters. And he agrees that they’re also plasmas. supposedly. our environment? And intelligence and matter and physics and so on? Warren: Well. “All right.Hosting Speaking of Strange at 570 WWNC. We’ve come up with four different factors that will help you predict when the lights can be seen. They call that balance.

it’s available. because we demonstrated something in a laboratory when we knew what all the variables were. That’s right. I’m going to be taking more trips. Because it may be that we are never going to be satisfied by just getting some random field that moves through at the same time someone reports something weird. Warren: Yup. We have a guy who is creating a box for us that has 100 LEDs. And the LEDs range from infrared through the visible spectrum into ultraviolet. not just by triggering hallucinations. I think I would have heard about it by now. And then lastly: if there happens to be an excessive amount of carbon in the air from camp fires or even a forest fire. are relatively inexpensive to produce. I’ve spent fifteen years out there collecting a lot of field data and I’m now ready to sit down and adapt that information to experiments. a documentary. fifty who say they’ve seen something ghostly and fifty who say they have not and test their eyes and see specifically what frequency ranges they’re seeing and try to determine if there is some consistency there in those who have or have not seen a ghost. I’m going to go to some islands that I’ve never been to in the Caribbean investigating pirate ghosts. Then we’re going UFO to take a hundred people. Beckley: Let’s end this by talking about your current projects.surement of how disturbed the earth’s magnetosphere is. If they’ve been done. You could expand it to any of these strange things that people observe. you’ll see a little indicator there with that information. Those are the best four things for the time being. and now I want other people to reproduce it so they can verify it themselves and hopefully use it to learn even more. That’s what we did with Brown Mountain. Because at most you can say. April 2008 59 . but it just takes time and effort and access to the right people. What’s next? Warren: I probably am not ready to talk about this new movie that I’m shooting right now. I guess just in summary. but also trying to determine if the human is capable of documenting these things that cannot otherwise be measured with a little box that beeps and has lights on it. but no one knows exactly what to do from that point on. And also. We eventually created a plasma chamber and reproduced a phenomenon like the Brown Mountain Lights on a miniature scale. UFO Producing plasmas in the lab with Charles Yost. So we have to know more about how these fields are affecting people. if you go to the website. We have some experiments that are very simple but have just never been done. The time when I saw them the most prominently was when there was a big forest fire that was a few miles down the road. if it’s during or just after a rainy period. one thing that I think is really important is to take more of the stuff that we have learned in the field for so many years and apply it to laboratory experiments. The extra carbon in the air seems to act as a fuel to help create the lights. that was really interesting. We can’t explain it. but I am working on an independent production. just the section in the middle. Our work again is out there. Beckley: You could throw in a few UFO observers too. the rain water that goes through the mountain seems to build up some of these charges. Trustworthy people. And I will say that it has to do with religion and some of the strange things associated with religion. And that’s why we earned the cover of the science journal. That’s something that has not been done much in this field. 2004. In the coming year. Third. So there are many experiments like that that are simple. I’d like to take some of these people who call themselves ghost hunters. I have a whole list of experiments that I want to do because I see all the field data just keep piling up and piling up and finally I’m ready to start doing more with it. wow. And then you learn more about how we perceive these things. So you shouldn’t be able to see the LEDs on either end. regardless of whether you see them on TV or it’s the guy down the street and ask him what is an electromagnetic field? How does that little box that you have in your hand actually work? I think you would be surprised at how few people can tell you what an electromagnetic field is after they’ve been sitting there talking about getting strange electromagnetic field readings. We need to do more basic elementary stuff in terms of educating people about how to use the equipment as well as exploring how these things can be sensed by humans in addition to the equipment.

I refer to this section of the book as I outline what we knew about the Brown Mountain phenomena at the time while Joshua updates the enigma in our recent interview. others who have lived near Brown Mountain for as many as 75 years seem to think that there is something even more odd and peculiar than spirits at work in the valley below. JWM has a keen sense of humor and has himself been in the trenches longer than anyone else around today. I would have been in my late teens at the time and just venturing out on the road to hobnob with UFO witnesses and get my feet wet in the Cinderella world of flying saucers. butting into each other and bouncing like big basketballs. My traveling companion—actually he drove those many miles from our base in New Jersey—was James W. long before the white man had reached the shores of America. another teen ufologist of the period who has remained with his ear against the wall. as most legends do. It seems that the two tribes had a big battle hundreds of years ago which killed just about all the men of the two tribes. whom we shall talk about in a minute. and actually that’s not far off the mark since it was the mid-1960s. two of these lights approached out of the valley. listened to the radio where we could get reception. Apparently. a bimonthly newsstand publication. weaving up and down over the trees on Brown Mountain. Various legends have sprung up about the origin of the lights. I would imagine. space aliens. I could not help but recall my own investigation of the Brown Mountain Lights. Allen was the first to come up with an alternative reality theory for the origin of UFOs and has authored over the years such works as Secret Cipher of the UFOnauts (Illuminet Press. I wrote my experiences up at the time for one of Brad Steiger’s books as well as for my column in Ray Palmer’s Flying Saucers From Outer Space. perhaps going back as far as 1200. One has it that the lights are caused by the spirits of the Cherokee and Catawba braves searching the valley for their maiden lovers. According to Paul Rose. The hills of North Carolina are a job to navigate. Rose bases his opinion that they are intelligently controlled on the fact that he has seen them fighting. in greater numbers and brighter than ever before. He has also tracked them at speeds of almost one hundred miles per hour. It seems like half a century ago. 1994) and The Story of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Light (Luxor Press. He claims that on one particular night in the late 1950s. This led Rose to the conclusion that these lights are highly radioactive. all bridges were knocked out and roads were too muddy to enable cars to pass. because within the last several years at least a half dozen Indian graves have been found in the area nearby. to some the most disliked man in the field. approached a tower he had built for the purpose of watching them over the trees and climbed to within feet of his position. and no doubt spoke of all things ufological. Moseley. the back roads are bumpy and winding. Somewhere along the line before hitting Brown Mountain we teamed up with Atlanta’s Allen Greenfield. Actually. At the time it was thought that the lights might have been caused by the headlights on locomotives running through a nearby valley. during one rough spring. and other otherworldly oddities. 60 April 2008 UFO . However. 2005). Out of all the people living in the area. who accompanied us to a secret lookout point despite the 10-degree weather and the falling snow.The Brown M by Timothy Green Beckley It is said that here for several hundred years. His first sighting came when he was just a youth in about 1916. they may be something from outer space. which details the history and legends of the lights. and another fellow. Yet the Brown Mountain lights were seen. people have reported seeing strange lights which appear to roam about the mountain peaks without any apparent source. 1997). We laughed. seems to have gotten closer to the lights than anyone else. Tim Beckley with Betty Hill While chitchatting with Joshua Warren. more so in those days. Rose. this legend does have some basis in fact. However. when excitement was at an all-time high. The next day he and a friend who had been with him both became violently ill. The latter is reprinted as part of my book Strange Saga (Global Communications.

Arriving two days later on Earth’s sister planet. others began popping up along the mountainside in a smaller valley below. Lael discovered that by asking the lights questions. He ran for Congress in 1948 and lost by a few thousand votes. One came so close. entered and was offered a ride to Venus—which he accepted. Lael is shown what appear to be newsreels of the destruction of Pewam as well as scenes going on back on earth. they all took off into the timber and disappeared from Lael’s view. Suddenly a voice said. Several expeditions. Deciding that the only way to uncover the source of these lights was to go into the almost impassable mountain area itself. Lael claims not only to have seen the lights up close but to have communicated with them on numerous occasions as well. the first light had been joined by as many as twenty more. that Lael felt he could have read a book by it. he was led to a room about eight feet square. they would answer by either moving up and down for yes or back and forth for no. Within ten or fifteen minutes.

Shortly after. which our ancestors destroyed. who was born in Alexander County on a small hillside farm in 1909. Ralph Lael told us that “there are many things I have seen and heard that I cannot reveal here because of my obligations to the Brown Mountain Lights. Shortly after midnight. one of the lights led Lael to a door which leads inside of Brown Mountain. Although unbelievable as this story may seem. within ten feet.

5) called “An Occult Translation of the Roswell Event. In addition to the corroborating evidence of early man in these sources. Flynn has discovered what he believes to be a widespread swath of manmade glyphs in Bolivia that predate commonly accepted theories of just when mankind took his earliest steps and became something truly human. Flynn was invited to speak at conferences around the country. and other ancient legends suggested that mankind had existed for tens of thousands of years prior to 6. 20.” Flynn used that research as the basis of his first book Cydonia: The Secret Chronicles of Mars (Thunder Publishers. After its publication. including one for UFO Magazine in November 2005 (Vol.C. These epics were divided by world cataclysms that nearly erased all traces of their existence apart from legend and megalithic sites scattered around the globe.

Did those same UFO occupants help early man create his first civilizations? The belief in what is sometimes called the ancient-astronaut theory of UFOs has recently been given new supportive evidence by an author and researcher named David Flynn. Using recent satellite photos obtained on the internet. Greek history. He has since written several articles. Flynn has been studying ancient history and its many mythological systems since the early 1990s.000 B. I found records of advanced civilizations existing far earlier than what is considered to be the case by mainstream archeology. “and the various deities representing the planet in civilization-founding myths. “I began researching the connection between the planet Mars. 2002).

” After closer study. Flynn could only see a resolution of about fifteen meters for one pixel. is nearly identical to many of the geoglyphs. “It was apparent that the features on the ground were extensive and very complex. there are miles of random lines crossing each other. “can be seen in the megalith carvings at Tiahuanaco.

One design in particular. 63 by Sean Casteel UFO April 2008 . the more I realized that the majority of these features had nothing to do with farming. “The best correlation of pre-Incan art with the geoglyph designs. the closer I looked. These do not correspond with any farming technique known to have been employed by the Incas. “These rendered the topography with extreme clarity. a plateau in the Andes Mountains range over two miles above sea level. especially those that were carved into the sterile bedrock of mountains and hills. The new project began in August 2007 when Flynn was looking at satellite images over the area of Tiahuanaco to see if the layout of the temple complex there bore any resemblance to the Temple of Solomon. “At first. Some extend for tens of miles into hills or radiate from central hubs. “In the desert approximately 120 miles south of Lake Titicaca. the next step for Flynn was to determine just what he was seeing etched into the earth there. the headdress array on the image of Viracocha on the Gate of the Sun.New Evidence of Ancient Astronauts Found In Bolivia terview With David Flynn and numerous other radio programs. the newly discovered designs seemed to echo pre-Incan art and religious symbols. these seemed to be remnants of agricultural activity. “However. He soon discovered that new images of the area with a resolution of five meters per pixel had been uploaded to the program from Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation’s Quick Bird satellite. spiraling and forming abstract mosaic patterns.” Having obtained workable images. covering a swath roughly 300 miles north to south by 70 miles east to west on the Alti Plano.” he said.” Flynn explained.” Flynn said.

This pattern is seen in various forms on the tops of hills with mounds terminating at their bases. “At a site called Ku-e-lap in a remote location in Northern Peru. over three miles above sea level. When the waters subsided. Ceques were sightlines radiating from cities or geologic features on the landscape on which holy sites. over two miles above sea level.” Flynn said. It would require thousands of people over hundreds of years in air so thin that modern-day visitors require supplemental oxygen to stave off altitude sickness if they linger in the area for more than a few days. who were said to be a tall people with very fair hair.000 square miles. They were created by excavation of bedrock—in places 20 feet wide and at least 10 feet deep—over entire hills. a source Flynn draws upon. It is still in use by Bolivians and Peruvians to this day. transformation. This site was built by the Cha-cha-poyan. “This word can also mean extreme changes in space/time.” he continued. “The Incas knew of this culture and reported that they arrived during a time of pacha-chuti. In this regard. The Inca recreation story is consistent with the Genesis 6 flood epic. where Viracocha began to create the people and nations of the region. There is no evidence suggesting where these people came from. each terminating in a circle. up to 20.” he said. Because the geoglyphs seem to correspond in many ways to the designs etched into the colossal blocks of Tiahuanaco.” The new Bolivian glyphs. the features were created as both a warning and a legacy.” When asked whether any of this has a direct link to the UFOs of our time. Given that the glyphs found in the more recent satellite photos are manmade and intended to carry religious meaning. It was said that during the dividing points of ages. Was it perhaps from fear of the gods? “This remains the most difficult question to answer. except Manco Capac and a woman who remained in a box. A sonqo was a sacred place on the landscape described as representing the founders of civilization. who explained its origin from many thousands of years before their culture came into being. are at a low altitude. also display characteristics that differ greatly from their better-known counterpart.” Flynn said. The Spanish conquistadors wrote of the rainbow standard of the Incas. “though covering hundreds of miles. let alone an undertaking of such magnitude. according to author Victor Von Hagen. This feat was accomplished at very high altitude. just what sort of gods were those ancients trying to placate or communicate with? The answer can perhaps only come through more study of the local mythology. The religious symbols include a stepped geometric design called the tocapu.

Flynn responded with an interesting bit of apocalyptic prophecy. There are also rectangular and zigzag motifs on the Sun Gate that are imitated in geoglyphs excavated into the bedrock of mountainsides. A huanaca was where an ancestor was transformed into a natural feature. They were scratched superficially into the desert floor. which represented the primordial earth rising out of a world flood. “The legends connected with the builders of Tiahuanaco explain that the city was erected in response to knowledge of an impending global flood. makes existence itself very difficult for human beings. and he appeared at the end of a world deluge in which all the races of men and created things perished when the waters rose above the highest mountain peaks in the world. usually an outcropping of rock. the wind carried them to Tiahuanaco. or Cloud People. The Mayan and Aztec cultures shared many similar legends of creation and world cataclysm with the Incan and pre-Incan civilizations.” This incredible height. But the Bolivian designs cover a far greater area. There are even traces of geoglyphs at the 16.” The religious meaning of the glyphs. In the Inca civilization founding myth. seen in the clouds 64 at the end of the flood. a new era. was adopted as the standard for the civilizations of the Andes. it may be that the information being conveyed by both focuses on the episodic nature of a catastrophe that destroyed it. according to Flynn. “The greatest UFO flap in modern times. the first Inca was named Manco Capac. One Inca myth in particular involves a golden disc that hung in the temple at Cusco. or huacas. Flynn believes that the original creators of the glyphs must have felt an urgent sense of mission to do what they did. A rainbow.

“This is the same message that many researchers in Mexico have derived from the huge increase of UFO activity in the area. “although this information may surface with ongoing research. Flynn has not encountered any resistance to his new discovery. 1843) Prescott recorded the succession of many civilizations that preceded the Incas.” he said. his conclusions have gained momentum with the work of some very reputable modern scholars.” he said. “When the Spanish asked the local Incas about the ruins of the city.” So far. during this time.

One can only wonder how long it will be before the government starts to intercept the communication of UFO and disclosure groups and media. which is a threat to all freedom movements. No. which is lying by omission. I charge that Obama knows this. As an educator I can definitively state that the term age-appropriate is very subjective and based more on personal development and family values than any particular curriculum or pedagogy. Will the false specter of an alien invasion be used to achieve this? Obama’s nonconstructivist view of the Constitution as a socalled living document is a direct attack on the Constitution. Disclosure and the truth are not likely to occur in a corporatist global government with a police state environment and the attendant centralized powers and bureaucracy that would come with such a scenario. the government does this on a daily basis and then commands us to pay the interests on the deficit spending. McCain’s vote for the ill-named Patriot Act demonstrates his contempt for the Constitution. 23. Of course. 1) of UFO Magazine. His desire to strengthen NATO is a backdoor method to weakening our sovereignty and further eroding the Declaration of Independence. for example. individuals wishing to communicate with other beings by raising their consciousness through the use of various chemical stimulants face prison sentences and seizure of their private property. Corporatism. If we refuse. one glaring example is that the act allows the government to see a list of all materials viewed at or checked out of a library. Since we are told that the Soviet Union no longer exists and is no longer a threat why are we expanding NATO? Such a force will require a threat in order to justify its existence. His willingness to vote for unbalanced budgets while paying lip service to deficit spending is a slap in the face to the rule of law. Because of positions like these. Simply put. The problems with the act are too numerous to list here. This type of attack on our freedoms may perhaps be the most insidious and dangerous. and global dominance are the mainstays of McCain’s vision for the future. Perhaps that letter you emailed to UFO Magazine is not quite as private and anonymous as you thought it was. including disclosure movements here and abroad. and therefore it should have full authority to not only run every aspect of your life but to also to limit which information you are exposed to. This kind of state is in no way conducive to disclosure by the government. however. McCain’s push to increase criminal penalties for victimless crimes and to increase the number of prisons in this country attacks each American’s right to self-determination. 1998) or viewed any disclosure websites at your local library. NATO is merely an arm of the United Nations.Audi Alteram Partem continued from page 39 Barrack Obama Obama’s insistence that age-appropriate sex education be provided to all children starting at age five is a direct assault on natural law.

Under this theory of government the big brother state knows what is better for you than you do. This may lead to a manufactured threat. yet fails to mention it. the recognition of our right to petition the government for a redress of grievances concerning disclosure. 72 April 2008 UFO . Domination of foreign lands only encourages centralized power. In fact. If you or I write a check for money that we do not have we face criminal prosecution.1 I hope none of you have checked out The UFO Encyclopedia: The Phenomenon from the Beginning (Omnigraphics. His admittance that the government coverage would be mandatory for children violates familial sovereignty. In this type of state the people have been dumbed down to the point that they government and a bigger brother who is well-armed to back it up. Without the Constitution there is no enumeration or specific legal recognition of our rights. John McCain McCain’s support for torture euphemistically referred to as enhanced interrogation techniques attacks natural law at its core. Senator Barrack Obama’s platform is one of social engineering and psychological and social manipulation. Exposing children to such material outside of the family environment leads to preoccupation with base thoughts and serves as a modern-day bread and circuses. However. Keep in mind that the purpose of NATO was to ward off an attack by the Soviet Union. What will happen when the government-reimbursed doctors decide that children who are being taught to believe in UFOs are being emotionally and psychologically abused by their parents? In addition. This in turn develops a person who is not interested in deeper issues such as government accountability and disclosure. His insistence on developing a world empire through military interventionism shows a pattern of disdain for the Declaration of Independence. If torture is OK as long as it is for the utilitarian greater good. How long will it be before the government uses the IRS to go after disclosure and UFO groups so as to intimidate and put them out of business? Obama’s push for universal health care flies in the face of individual sovereignty. a historical study of economic principals demonstrates that forced adult membership in the government’s health plan will eventually have to occur in order for the plan to work long-term. then what policies will be instituted in order to prevent disclosure from occurring if it is deemed necessary for the greater social good? His vote to grant immunity to phone companies for their illegal actions in colluding with the government to listen in on America’s phone conversations proves his contempt for the rule of law. if the Constitution does not say what it means and mean what is says then it is a useless document with no inherent values or concrete principals. Only parents have the right to decide when and how their children will be educated about sex. it is anchored in principles that support secrecy and rule by the elite. Senator John McCain’s platform is a dressed-up version of the Bush legacy. cronyism.

I have never previously UFO April 2008 . It also seemed to be at about the same altitude that a commercial aircraft normally flies while at cruising altitude. I was looking up towards the moon. To open things up. The crafts remained visible to the naked eye for about five minutes before disappearing. About the witnesses: I am a 47-year-old marketing executive and creative consultant to the motion picture industry. In other words. The duration of the sighting was about 4 to 5 minutes. For about four or five minutes they leisurely moved around and on occasion become completely stationary.

While watching the unidentified craft for a minute or so.m. At first the object appeared to be flying in a straight line like a normal aircraft.

Once the objects reached their center-point destination. November 18. they flew with the curvature to one side. The craft then moved around its location sluggishly and in what appeared to be a somewhat erratic fashion. which was clearly visible to me at that hour. Another unusual attribute of the crafts was that although they were shaped like a boomerang.m. *** The strange thing about the preceding report is the way the craft flew seemingly sideways. 2007 my partner and I observed three UFOs flying high in the late afternoon sky over Palm Springs. It should be noted that the sky at that time of day was perfectly clear with exceptional visibility. Each craft was identical in size and shape to one another.

The object made no sound and had no lights. but I had a sighting myself around 1980 in mid-August at about 10:30 p. They left no contrails behind them.m. However. and because of their relatively high speed. The linear movement was characterized by a sort of zigzag swaying from side to side. maybe 300 feet or so. the object was no longer visible to me.

The object was brownish in color and dark. and the duration of this event was reported to be about 15 seconds at around 9:30 p. I decided to notify local police to report my experience. During the observation the group travelled at an elevation of approximately 50 degrees above the horizon. It was a V-shaped object heading due south at a slow speed. The next interesting report is out of Brussels. and similar to the above report is this: This thing did not fly like a well-thrown Joe Montana spiral pass. It looked to be very.

Mysterious and Silent VShaped UFO Spotted It was a clear night with no clouds. since reflections and birds can betray the human eye so easily. I was so fixed on this phenomenon that I simply forgot to count the number of spheres. of a football-shaped object that flew across the sky from south to north. I have also always been skeptical about observations of spheres during day or night time. This object was not flying particularly fast and was plainly visible. overtaking each other with brisk accelerations and then slowing down again and with brisk changing of directions over about 10 to 15 degrees deviation from the group’s heading before regaining the general track. so no detail was visible with the exception of its football shape. After much debate with another friend this morning. The sky was perfectly clear. rather than the tip as one would expect. The length of the football-shaped object was approximately comparable to the diameter of a nickel at arm’s length. but their movements were very erratic. After only 2 to 5 seconds of saying hello.m.
