By Sean Casteel
This book should be accredited in academic circles for its visionary efforts and its attempts to cover a little known cultural aspect of the already controversial topic of UFO studies.
The content is given a great deal of legitimacy due to its many valued contributors, including a Religious Studies Professor, Stephen C. Finley, who teaches at Louisiana State University.
But let us start “at the beginning!”
When editor and publisher Timothy Green Beckley first proposed the idea for a book to be called “Alien Lives Matter: It’s OK To Be Grey,” some among his stable of writers and contributors were concerned that the title might be seen as trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement that has been the catalyst for so much hoped for meaningful social change in this country.
So Tim did a little background research and discovered that the “Lives Matter” slogan had been appropriated in numerous ways and in numerous places. For example, there is a group calling itself “Hawaiian Lives Matter,” and Amazon offers a wide selection of t-shirts with “Alien Lives Matter” emblazoned on the chest. So we are not alone, to use an expression.
When we were working on the book and I mentioned the title to family and friends, it never failed to elicit a chuckle and a comment about how clever it was. Even among nonbelievers, the title struck home and resonated profoundly.
The book turned out to be a monumental effort over 500 pages in length and utilizing the talents of many, many contributors well known in the fields of Ufology and paranormal research.
One of the main concepts we were trying to illuminate was the idea that aliens, grey and otherwise, do indeed have lives that matter. And they are not completely invulnerable to attack by humans. We present a large number of case histories in which humans assaulted aliens with guns, ran over them with cars, and imprisoned them in jail cells, etc., all as a response to humans’ fear of the unknown. In many cases, the aliens were perfectly harmless and did not deserve the mayhem unleashed on them.
Which doesn’t mean that the aliens don’t take a kind of vengeance in such cases – or at least make a show of force intended to demonstrate that they will defend themselves when necessary and are not intimidated. Like we humans, the aliens value their own lives and the lives of their fellow creatures.
But this line of thinking, in racial terms, also led us to do a section on Black and African-American UFO experiencers. Most of them are little known in the field, even among the so-called “experts,” but there are many cases of interaction between Blacks and aliens, and we present a great deal of them in “Alien Lives Matter.”
AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN BOARDS A UFO
There is, for example, one of the most famous instances of alien abduction, the Barney and Betty Hill case. A chapter in the book called “The Betty and Barney Hill Abduction – An African-American UFO Story,” written by researcher David J. Halperin, tells their story briefly.
“They were coming home from a vacation in Canada,” Halperin writes, “driving by night through the New Hampshire Mountains, when they noticed a light following them. The light seemed to move against
the background of the starry sky, suggesting pretty strongly that it wasn’t itself a heavenly body.”
The event was taking place in September, 1961. The story continues.
“Barney stopped the car, got out, and looked at the light through a pair of binoculars,” Halperin continues. “He saw a glowing, flat, pancake-shaped object with what seemed to be rows of lighted windows around its edges. Behind the windows were humanlike figures. Terrified, Barney fled back to the car and they zoomed off down the highway. The rest of the trip was surreal, dreamlike. Twice the Hills heard, or thought they heard, a series of beeps. That was all they remembered of the UFO before they arrived in Portsmouth at dawn, hours later than they’d expected.”
Those “missing” hours that Halperin is recounting have come to be a familiar element in the many alien abduction stories that were to follow in the nearly sixty years since the Hills’ encounter. In February 1964, under hypnosis with Boston psychiatrist Dr. Benjamin Simon, the details of one of the strangest encounters in the history of mankind would emerge in all its history-making glory once the alien-induced “amnesia” was penetrated.
What has often been overlooked is the fact that Barney was an African-American and the Hills were a mixed race couple in a time when the shadow of racism hung over such a union. The Civil Rights movement as led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was in its early stages and Jim Crow laws still existed in many parts of the country. As the Hills made that fateful drive down the New Hampshire highway, Barney said later that he had been tired and considered stopping at a motel to sleep before continuing their journey.
But Barney decided against the idea simply because he didn’t want to risk the indignity of being turned away from a “whites only” motel.
Meanwhile, as Tim Beckley tells the tale, Barney had not been entirely passive with the aliens. He became exceedingly frightened seeing the strange aerial activity and stopped the car. During a session with Dr. Simon, Barney explained how he went about getting Betty’s handgun out of the trunk.
“I went to the trunk of the car,” Barney said, “and opened it and took out a gun I had concealed there and I put it in my pocket. And then I said, ‘Give me the binoculars.’ And I looked and I could see that the thing I thought was a plane had made a turn to the left toward Vermont, and kept turning and started coming right back.”
The craft got bigger and more menacing, Beckley writes. Under hypnosis, Barney started screaming “I’ve got to get my gun!” Betty’s niece, Kathleen Marden, decades later coauthored with Stanton Friedman a well-received book on the Hills’ experience called “Captured!” When Kathleen was asked whether the Hills had taken the handgun they’d been carrying onboard the craft with them while being abducted, she replied that they had not.
Why did they leave the pistol behind, considering they were so frightened? Could it have been because the couple had been given a “mental command” by the aliens to leave the weapon behind – for everyone’s safety? Things might have gone far worse for Betty and Barney if they had gone onboard the ship “packing heat.”
The Hill case serves very well to illustrate the two main themes of “Alien Lives Matter.” On the one hand, you have the potential violent aggression against the UFO occupants as evidenced by Barney placing the pistol in his pocket. Add to that the fact that Barney was an African-American UFO experiencer and you understand what Beckley calls the book’s “two-pronged” approach to the flying saucer phenomenon.
THE MOTHER AND DAUGHTER EXPERIENCERS
Tim Beckley’s longtime friend, Diane Tessman, runs a psychic counseling service and is a prolific author, with a great deal of her work
having been published by Beckley himself. When I was doing some proofreading chores for “Alien Lives Matter,” I was surprised to learn that Tessman is mother to a biracial daughter who is also a Ufologist. The daughter’s name is Gianna, and her father hails from Trinidad.
“Diane and her daughter are striking beauties,” Beckley writes. “One blond with green eyes and the other with curly brown hair and big, expression-filled brown eyes. A wondrous contrast. I don’t know of any other biracial individuals in UFO research or the paranormal, but I am honestly probably not completely informed as I am not working for the census bureau. Diane and Gianna, who is an experienced video photographer, have had a number of UFO experiences together. And Gianna has done some channeling, but not fulltime like her mother.”
The paranormal experiences mother and daughter have shared have served as a bonding mechanism, though it is sometimes difficult to separate their UFO encounters from other kinds of supernatural events. Perhaps it is better to withhold their stories so the reader can experience what the pair saw in the kind of detail not possible in the space allotted for this article.
THE BLACK MAN WHO RAN PROJECT BLUE BOOK
Did you know that the Air Force’s UFO reporting and analysis agency, the now defunct Project Blue Book, was once headed by an African-American?
Colonel Robert Friend was said to be one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, an all-black unit flying single-engine planes into combat in the Mediterranean theater during World War II. After the war, Friend remained in the military in what became the Air Force, and, rising to lieutenant colonel, he directed Project Blue Book, holding the post from 1958 to 1963.
In a speech Friend gave at the National Atomic Testing Museum in 2017, he expressed skepticism about genuine alien UFOs having visited the Earth, but, unlike many of his colleagues, he favored further
research. He said he believed that the probability of there being life elsewhere in the big cosmos “is just absolutely out of this world.”
Friend died in 2019 at the age of ninety-nine.
BARBARA HUDSON – UFO CONTACTEE
Barbara Hudson was one of only a handful of females involved in the UFO phenomenon. In the 1960s, she was a consort of flying saucer pioneers Gray Barker and Jim Moseley, forming a trio that the average Middle American would probably find a little bit out of the ordinary, particularly because Barbara is Black. Barbara claimed to belong to a secret organization called “The Group.”
Hudson’s entrée into the 60s saucer scene began when three mysterious men showed up at her New York apartment and informed her that she’d been chosen to become a member of a secretive outfit involved with UFOs. The three mystery men drove Hudson to a remote stretch of Long Island where they arrived at a secluded compound. Hudson was introduced to other members of “The Group,” a secret alliance of humans and ETs who had joined forces to reveal the startling truth of the flying saucer mystery.
“The Group” was responsible for Hudson’s involvement with the UFO conference scene, and in fact directed her to attend one of Moseley’s conventions so they could “keep an eye on things.” At the time, when Tim Beckley was first starting to spread his wings as a publisher in the UFO field, he heard many of Barbara’s stories firsthand and felt that she related them with conviction, though there was no way to verify her claims. Which only added to Hudson’s “aura of mystery.”
“Alien Lives Matter” includes Barbara’s first-person account of a “human”-looking stranger appearing in her bedroom with piercing shafts of light for eyes. She was then taken aboard a ship in what seems to be a pretty standard abduction experience. The aliens told Barbara that they were visiting Earth in an attempt to “contact their own.” This, too, is
familiar, as many other contactees have also been told that they are special “chosen ones,” under the protection of the UFO occupants.
Again, one should read Barbara’s story in “Alien Lives Matter” to get a more complete account of her life as an African-American UFO experiencer.
AFRICAN-AMERICAN SHOW BIZ AND THE ALIEN INFLUENCE
Tim Beckley also relates the stories of some important Black entertainers and their interest in UFOs. Avant-garde jazz musician Sun Ra even claimed to be from another planet, sent from Saturn to preach peace to our war-ravaged planet.
Sun Ra claimed that a bright light appeared around him and his whole body changed into something else. He could see through himself.
“I went up – I wasn’t in human form – and I landed on a planet that I identified as Saturn. They teleported me and I was on a stage with them. They told me the world was going into complete chaos. I would speak through music and the world would listen. That’s what they told me!”
Another prominent African American musician is jazz flutist Bobbi Humphrey, who has impressive credits, having played alongside Duke Ellington and George Benson and being named Best Female Instrumentalist by “Billboard Magazine.”
“By her own admission,” Beckley writes, “Bobbi has seen things in the sky that were most unusual. She has also been fascinated by psychic phenomena since she was young and is an avid reader of magazines about the paranormal. Bobbi has personally had many, many experiences that could be labeled paranormal and confesses that she is a little frightened of the unseen bizarre realms that surround us. Bobbi is proof that African-Americans are just as hip on UFOs as any other group of open-minded folks.”
The late comedian Dick Gregory was a true crusader who was sometimes thought of as the country’s top back humorist. He told Beckley in an interview that he was certain UFOs exist – he’d seen them – and that a secret government controls what we are allowed to think and believe regarding UFOs and other matters.
Meanwhile, the late African-American entertainer, Sammy Davis, Jr., held a lively belief in UFOs, having made four observations that were “positively out of this world.” Davis told his UFO encounter stories to Beckley personally in a telephone interview arranged by jazz drummer Buddy Rich, who was also a believer. Davis told Beckley he had never feared whoever the flying saucer pilots were, although we don’t know what his buddy, the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra, had to say on the subject.
Did aliens intervene to save the life of a young Jimi Hendrix? Read the riveting account of Hendrix surviving a killer blizzard that could easily have taken his life before the years when he would come to be regarded as the greatest rock guitarist of all time. The story is best left to readers of “Alien Lives Matter” who will appreciate learning the facts of Jimi’s relationship with the aliens and their keeping a careful watch over him so that he could fulfill his destiny as a leading musical figure of his time.
Richie Havens, the black folk music icon, claimed that as he was improvising the song “Freedom” on stage at the legendary Woodstock music festival in 1969 he saw a couple of UFOs dancing among the clouds. He also had other UFO sightings. Havens was so immersed in the subject that he showed up to speak at small UFO conferences held at the Village Gate in Greenwich Village.
STILL MORE AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCERS
“Alien Lives Matter” also relates the stories of other African-American experiencers.
Riley Martin was a Mississippi sharecropper who had multiple UFO encounters as a child and would achieve a kind of fame on shock jock Howard Stern’s radio program talking about his contact experiences, which continued well into his adulthood.
African-American twin sisters Shurlene and Earlene Wallace were typical abductees, frequently being taken from their bedrooms into strange alien environments. Shurlene wrote a book about their encounters called “From the Motherland to the Mothership,” the word “Motherland” being a reference to Africa.
Beckley provides a detailed history of Muhammad Ali and his UFO encounters, which are also related to Ali’s spiritual leader, Elijah Muhammad, who believed that the Biblical prophet Elijah was describing a UFO when he wrote about the “Mother Wheel” as a vision sent by God. Beckley spent time hanging out with Ali and interviewing the champ personally, and he reports on Ali’s experiences with both humor and heart.
Meanwhile, Stephen C. Finley is a Religious Studies professor at Louisiana State University who specializes in African-American religion and has made a thorough study of the Nation of Islam and its place in ushering in the belief in UFOs in the U.S. beginning in the 1930s, many years before Kenneth Arnold’s 1947 sighting of flying saucers that is usually said to be the starting point for the phenomenon in the modern era. Finley was a guest on Beckley’s podcast “Exploring the Bizarre,” cohosted by Tim R. Swartz, and still available to listen to on YouTube.
“Alien Lives Matter: It’s OK To Be Grey” involves the work of many writers and can truly be said to be “years in the making.” Read it for its unique perspective on humankind’s troubled responses to the alien presence, as well as for its embracing of racial diversity in a world still suffering from cruel forms of discrimination. To the greys, we are not white people or colored people – we are simply people.

ALIEN LIVES MATTER – IT’S OK TO BE GREY by Tim Beckley, Sean Casteel, Tim Swartz and others
YOUTUBE CHANNEL — “MR UFOS SECRET FILES”
By Timothy Green Beckley and Sean Casteel
With a population hovering around 20,000 today, Kingman is well-known for its location as a Route 66 gateway. Western star Andy Devine was born and raised in the town, and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were married at the rectory of Saint John’s Methodist Episcopal Church, during a break in the shooting of “Gone with the Wind.” Pamela Anderson did one of her 1992 Playboy photo shoots at the corner of 4th Street and Andy Devine Avenue (US Route 66), and was brought in by the Kingman Police Department for indecent exposure. She was not charged, but was asked to write a letter of apology. (The town should apologize to her!)
It’s one of the most intriguing UFO “crash” cases of all time, which actually involves three separate episodes, starting in 1947 and continuing until today, but having its biggest impact in 1953. It even involves surviving human-alien occupants, gigantic forest fires which the ETs were thought to have been responsible for with the crash of their craft, and their escape from a guarded underground jail cell.
This has to be one of the greatest UFO mysteries of all time, but it is a case that has been pooh-poohed by skeptics who have never even checked into this intriguing tale. So it pretty much went by the wayside until historian Harry Drew stepped in and took matters into his own hands. His investigation has lasted over six years and is still ongoing.
The story of Kingman’s incredible UFO incident is a long and winding one, and is told in all its glorious detail in the massive, 538-page, oversized book, “Alien Lives Matter – It’s OK To Be Grey.” with its twenty odd contributors, including the authors of this article. Weighing in at 3.5 pounds, this is not a coffee table book – this is the coffee table!
The book is broken into two parts: Some call these cases mere “Urban Legends,” but, in shocking contrast, they are “all too real!” Over 20 of the world’s leading UFOlogists establish that humans have done battle with aliens over and over again, shooting at them, molesting them, hitting them, running them over, unleashing dogs upon them, and injuring — even killing them — through any means possible, as humans try to combat their fear of the unknown. In multiple instances, the aliens have fought back on land, in the air and in the seas. They have sought revenge, and, more often than not, gotten it, as these documented cases illustrate.
IS THERE A BLACK UFO EXPERIENCE?
The second part of the book’s “mission” is to dispel the concept held by many that African-Americans are not prone to have UFO experiences or to hold a belief or interest in the subject. Prof. Stephen Finley, of the University of Louisiana, explains how UFOs are part of the overall “Black experience.” Ours is a salute to the unsung “patriots of UFOlogy,” who have not been given the credit they deserve for their work in this field. We will cover this topic thoroughly in another piece.
KINGMAN WAS ONCE A GHOST OF A TOWN
Back when all the UFO activity got started, Kingman, AZ, was a “ghost of a town,” with about 3000 residents and a military base that had been closed for a while.
Of all the alleged UFO retrieval cases that have come to my attention, one incident – which is actually several incidents rolled up into one dynamic case – stands out, at least to us, above the rest.
This is a five star ***** case in anybody’s book – especially in ours!
It contains so many riveting elements that it’s hard to believe all these events took place over a period stretching from the late 1940s to 1953, but still continue in the area to this day for those “insiders” who are willing to persist in their investigations.
These “riveting elements” include:
** – An aerial overflight with a squadron of eight UFOs in fight formation.
** – At least one “UFO crash,” and two other “soft landings,” all documented and verified.
** – The connection between not one but two fierce forest fires and arson possibly caused by the arrival of “outside agitators.”
** – An incident in which human-looking Ultra-terrestrials were sighted in the area and taken into “protective custody,” only to have them vanish under the strangest of circumstances.
** – The disembarking in a “peculiar vehicle” to points unknown by unknown alien allies.

AN ATOMIC BOMB TEST
No one can be a hundred percent certain why Kingman attracted so much – almost maniacal – attention from the “sky people,” though an atomic bomb test in a neighboring state may have drawn them to the area.
One witness, Judith Ann Wolcott, has gone on record with the following proclamation concerning an atomic bomb test and the sighting of a UFO in close proximity.
“On May 19, 1953, at 05:05 AM local time, at Yucca Flat, Nevada, around 175 miles north of Kingman, one of a series of nuclear tests under the umbrella code-named Upshot-Knothole was set off. Sunrise that day was around 6:21, so, at the time of the blast the whole of the night sky was dark except for a slight pre-dawn glow along the eastern horizon. Within seconds of the blast some sort of a dark airborne object moving at an ultra-high rate of speed swept past to the east, traveling in a southerly direction almost as though it came from the test site tracking on a slightly downward trajectory and headed toward the mountains to the south.
“As the object lost altitude, suddenly a huge flash of light lit up the sky in the nearby mountains forward of the southern horizon. All along the object appeared to be unsteady, fairly thin, and possibly flat-circular. Although the sun was below the horizon the object was still high enough that it was able to catch the direct rays of the sun, wobbling enough that it was able to throw off a brilliant glint of sunlight from some portion of its underside as it tipped upward only to disappear as it tipped back. The flash of light near the base of the mountains was soon followed by a sound like a single clap of thunder.”
One individual has gone a long way in convincing me that that a series of UFO “crashes” outside the town of Kingman, AZ, might well be the most important UFO recovery case of all time, far surpassing even Roswell in notoriety and documentation.
We shall hear from historian Harry Drew as we continue down one long sandy desert road to find out the truth about the UFO retrieval at Kingman.

Turning back the clock to Friday, May, 22, 1953, the headline on the front page of the “Prescott Courier” cried out –
“DON’T LOOK NOW, BUT FLYING SAUCERS RETURN”
While the header just over the story itself reads: – “OBJECTS NOTED IN FORMATION FOR FULL HOUR”
FULL TEXT RELATED TO THE KINGMAN INCIDENT
“Return of Flying Saucers over Prescott with graphic accounts of their capers in the skies were reported here Friday to give credence to the stories of spaceships possibly from the outer world.
“Three reliable Prescott residents, one of whom previously scoffed at the stories of flying saucers and spaceships, were a bit reluctant Friday to tell of their witnessing the acrobatics of a ‘herd’ of these mysterious objects.
“The men, Bill Beers, president of the Prescott Sportsmen’s Club, Ray Temple, a post office employee, and O. Ed Olson, told of watching eight disc-like objects in the sky Thursday morning.
“The three had gone to Del Rio Springs Creek, some thirty miles north of the city, to check for trout placed in the stream for this week’s children’s fishing derby when they noticed the objects. They couldn’t believe what they saw: eight flying saucers appearing simultaneously.
“Temple was first to see the saucers and called them to the attention of his companions. Temple and Beers both gave a description of the objects and their activity to a Courier reporter.
“Beer, who has flown planes in the past 20 years, said the objects could not possibly have been planes, birds or balloons. He said that until yesterday he had pooh-poohed reports on flying saucers, but he was ‘no longer a skeptic.’
“Beers said the objects appeared to be about 10,000 feet in the air, but it was hard to judge not knowing the size of the craft.
“Both Beers and Temple said two of the discs remained alone and stationary during the hour as they were observed around 10 AM yesterday morning. The two stationary objects swooped around in formation, broke formation, ‘peeled-off’ and shot directly up and down in a manner that could not be duplicated by a plane. When the (eight crafts) moved, they varied from very slow to speeds faster than a jet plane, the observers reported.
“After performing these aerial acrobatics for an hour, all eight of the craft then sped off together toward Prescott.
“The day previous, March 20th, a woman and her granddaughter saw a ‘glowing object’ drifting over Copper Basin Road.”

THE EARLY ELEMENTS OF THE STORY
As it turns out, the Kingman incident is a touchy subject indeed, as it has long been covered up to a large degree by a cloak of disinformation and deception, due to a large degree of ignorance on the part of those who have not bothered to check the “facts” on their own, but have simply relied upon the negative reports issued by others who have never been to the scene or looked into the history of the case. Truly, it is a an incident – actually, a series of incidents – with many layers, a mystery inside a riddle, that has remained for the most part hidden under the desert sands of Arizona for generations, but thanks to one individual the Kingman retrieval is now about to be revealed in a new light.
If it wasn’t for an article published more than halfway across the country twenty years after the incident is said to have taken place, we probably would never have had the opportunity to learn about the incident in question. The original reference comes from an article that appeared in the Farmington, Massachusetts, edition of the “Middlesex News,” published on April 23, 1973. It came to light because a young man was planning to do a science project for school. The article came to the attention of longtime UFO researcher Raymond Fowler, who followed up on the case and was able to locate the key witness to the retrieval who maintains that he was in the military and assigned to the scene for recovery purposes.
The man, first identified as Fritz Werner for “security purposes,” was later revealed as being Arthur Stansel. Meeting with Werner/Stansel, Raymond Fowler was able to get the witness to this incredible event to sign an affidavit swearing to his role in the Kingman incident. It is part of a 95-page report prepared by Fowler at the time for the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.
I, Fritz Werner, do solemnly swear that during a special assignment with the U.S. Air Force, on May 21, 1953, I assisted in the investigation of a crashed unknown object in the vicinity of Kingman, Arizona.
The object was constructed of an unfamiliar metal which resembled brushed aluminum. It had impacted twenty inches into the sand without any sign of structural damage. It was oval and about 30 feet in diameter. An entranceway hatch had been vertically lowered and opened. It was about 3-1/2 feet high and 1-1/2 feet wide. I was able to talk briefly with someone on the team who did look inside only briefly. He saw two swivel seats, an oval cabin, and a lot of instruments and displays.
A tent pitched near the object sheltered the dead remains of the only occupant of the craft. It was about 4 feet tall, dark brown complexion and had 2 eyes, 2 nostrils, 2 ears, and a small round mouth. It was clothed in a silvery, metallic suit and wore a skull cap of the same type material. It wore no face covering or helmet.
I certify that the above statement is true by affixing my signature to this document this day of June 7, 1973.
Signature: Fritz Werner Date Signed: June 7, 1973 Witnessed By: Raymond E. Fowler Date Signed: June 7, 1973
* * * * * * * * * *
Not one to rest on his laurels, Fowler attempted to substantiate the background of Stansel, which bought him in touch with such sources as Wright-Patterson AFB, Project Blue Book personnel, the Stanford Research Institute and “a number of persons within the military-industrial complex.” And while Fowler admits that “no additional witnesses could be found, the peripheral names, positions, tests, dates, and places mentioned within Mr. Werner’s personal account all check out exceptionally well.”
As part of the affidavit swore:
“On May 20, 1953, I worked most of the day at Frenchman Flat. In the evening, I received a phone call from the test director, Dr. Ed Doll, informing me that I was to go on a special job the next day. On the following day, around 4:30 P.M., I reported for special duty and was driven to Indian Springs Air Force Base near the proving ground where I joined about fifteen other specialists.
“There, we were put on a bus with other personnel who were already there. The bus windows were all blacked out, so that we couldn’t see where we were going. We rode for an estimated four hours. I think we were in the area of Kingman, Arizona, which is northwest of Phoenix and not too far from the Atomic Proving Ground in Nevada. During the bus trip, we were told by an Air Force full-Colonel that a super-secret Air Force vehicle had crashed and that since we were all specialists in certain fields, we were to investigate the crash in terms of our own specialty and nothing more.
“Finally, the bus stopped and we disembarked one at a time as our names were called, and escorted by military police to the area that we were to inspect. Two spotlights were centered on the crashed object, which was ringed with guards. The lights were so bright that it was impossible to see the surrounding area. The object was oval and looked like two deep saucers, one inverted upon the other. It was about thirty feet in diameter with convex surfaces, top and bottom. These surfaces were about twenty feet in diameter. Part of the object had sunk into the ground. It was constructed of a dull silver metal like brushed aluminum. The metal was darker where the saucer ‘lips’ formed a rim, around which were what looked like slots. A curved open hatch door was located on the leading end and was vertically lowered. There was a light coming from inside, but it could have been installed by the Air Force.
“My particular job was to determine, from the angle and the depth of impact into the sand, how fast the vehicle’s forward and vertical velocities were at the time of impact. The impact had forced the vehicle approximately twenty inches into the sand. There were no landing gear. There also were no marks or dents, that I can remember, on the surface – not even scratches. Questions asked, having nothing to do with our own special areas, were not answered.”
The complete account as abridged above can be found in “Casebook of a UFO Investigator” by Raymond Fowler (Prentice-Hall, 1981, page 199-203). It is also reprinted in its entirety in “Alien Lives Matter – It’s OK To Be Grey.”
THE DREW FACTOR
Harry Drew resides in Kingman, Arizona, right in the hub of all this unusual UFO-related “chaos” on the ground and in the sky. Drew is highly regarded for his professional ethics, impeccable credentials and trusted results as an old-fashioned, Indiana Jones-type of researcher who takes his fieldwork seriously and has an uncanny ability to ferret out the truth no matter how it‘s been distorted.
Drew is a Cultural Resource Specialist in Ancient Civilizations, a former Director and Curator of Museums of History, Anthropology and Archeology, as well as being a newspaper columnist and author of history for the past 40 years. Drew is also an experienced documentarian with expertise in visual media, photography, television and film production, and in the field of fine arts.
Drew’s current works on UFO history include his Terminal Approach™ DVD series: “Hidden in Plain Sight – The Kingman UFO Crashes”©; Bay Area UFO CON 2012 Presentation on “Hidden in Plain Sight – The Kingman UFO Crashes”© and Harry’s forthcoming fully illustrated book “7 Days in May – The Kingman UFO Story”© that is filled with high resolution color photos taken during his six years doing research and field work, as well as other new books and documentaries in production for future release. Visit Harry’s website for more information on his work.
After years of research, Drew uncovered evidence indicating that the Kingman UFO story was the blending of several UFO events, one about a UFO landing and the other about a UFO crash that
happened four days later. Then Drew discovered there had been a third UFO which crashed and was an event missed altogether by “outsiders,” because word about all three UFOs and what happened during those ”7 Days In May”™ 1953 was a closely guarded secret mutually agreed to by Kingman residents but denied to “nonlocals.”
The Kingman resident continues to find new evidence that reveals why UFOs were flying near Kingman, along with what caused the UFOs to suddenly fall from the sky, and the reason why the witnesses stayed mum and kept the entire story a secret. Drew’s illustrated book “7 Days In May™ – The Kingman UFO Story”© clarifies one of the most extraordinary UFO stories in US and world history.
A SERIES OF AMAZING EVENTS
“In 1947,” Harry Drew notes, “‘UFO attacks at Kingman made front page news two days before the Roswell UFO crash story broke, even mentioning the direction the saucers came from. Newspaper accounts of UFOs over Kingman thrived in July 1947, even before the incident at Roswell had gotten implanted in the public’s consciousness.”
On the 7th of July, near Port Kingman, Arizona, mystery lights were observed. A newspaper account states: “Mrs. Albert Steele of Rutland reported seeing an oval-shaped, multi-colored flying saucer hovering over the CVPS gas plant early Monday morning during a heavy rain storm. The center of the ‘saucer’ was so bright she could not look at it steadily for any length of time, she said. She awakened her husband, she said, and he looked out the window and then went back to bed. ‘I’m always waking him during storms,’ she said. ‘He usually goes back to sleep.”‘
ALIENS SURVIVE CRASH — FROM THE PRIVATE FILES OF HARRY DREW
June 21, 1950, there is a UFO crash one mile away from the later May 24, 1953 UFO crash on the north face of the 8,256 foot high Hualapai Mountain. In the 1953 crash, there were two aliens who survived but were injured and one thought to be dead. There were also two UFO crew members said to be posing as “ambulance drivers” who picked up several of their “companions” who have been locked up in protective custody but were seen wandering the streets of Kingman.
TWO MASSIVE FOREST FIRES
The first fire was in 1950, the second in 1953. Both involved “strangers” found wandering about seemingly “out of place,” and out of touch with reality. They were immediately thought of as having somehow been involved in setting the fires.
“There was,” Drew explains, “a massive forest fire caused by what locals swore was from a disc falling from the sky into dense forest land on Hualapai Mountain 16 miles ‘easterly’ of Kingman.
“And it was also Sheriff Porter who later had to deal with the 1953 Kingman UFOs; the last of the three UFOs to go down was the second of two that crashed. It went down mid-morning on May 24, 1953 and was witnessed by locals who described it as a disc falling from the sky and crashing into dense forest land on Hualapai Mountain, starting a massive forest fire right in front of everyone in Old Town Kingman! This UFO crashed one mile from where the 1950 UFO went down. These forest fires were fought by the same men using the same primitive equipment each time.”
According to a clipping supplied by Drew, “It is estimated that 14,000 to 16,000 acres have been burnt over. Six cattle have been found burned to death, and other cattle with burns which have been found are now being treated. A total of 440 men who helped fight the fire are recorded on the time sheets, and an estimated $12,000 to $14,000 cost to the government and county has been caused by the fire, the Bureau of Land Management reports.
“No guess as to the origin of the fire has been made, and it is still too early to make an investigation into the cause. According to the sheriff’s office, no trace has as yet been found of the three men that Captain John A. Warren of the National Guard reported bringing to Kingman. The men boarded an ambulance in front of the hospital, according to Warren, and that is the last that has been heard of them.
“A reporter for ‘The Miner’ checked the Mohave General Hospital at press time this afternoon and hospital manager Joseph A. Copps said that their institution had not treated a single person for injuries suspected in the firefighting operation.”
How about that then, dear folks?
Drew adds that the only two roads leading in and out of town were both closed. There was no such thing as ERs or Burn Centers at the time. There were no other hospitals close by and those hospitals that existed were a considerable distance from Kingman, but they were contacted and asked if several men and been treated for burns. The few hospitals within the region reported no burn victims were seen or treated during the timeframe in question. Nor did any of the hospitals observe any vehicles resembling an ambulance, as had been said to have picked up the men.
AN INTERVIEW WITH A SURVIVING DEPUTY
“I am proud to say,” Drew continues, “that I did a supervised interview with the last surviving Deputy from this time period just before he passed away. Without leading this elderly man, he cooperated and volunteered clear recollections that matched information I was finding in my research and interviews with other witnesses. Of great interest was what happened early on when a Forest Service worker bringing up more supplies to fire crews noticed two individuals wearing some kind of coveralls (flight suits) who were also seen and described at the time by a third party, as ‘two strange looking men’ who were observed wandering aimlessly around, as if they were lost, or disoriented, right near where the forest fire had started (aka crash site).”
It was thought that they might have been arsonists!
TAKEN INTO CUSTODY – AND THEN THEY VANISHED!
“When these ‘two strange looking men’ were questioned by a Forest Service worker, they would not respond or even speak. Knowing there had been no thunderstorms and lightning (contrary to UFO tales told today), the Forest Service Worker suspected the fire was arson-related and the ‘two strange looking men’ were taken into custody and transported to the Sheriff’s office located in Old Town Kingman, where they were locked up inside a concrete vault built below ground level that has no openings except for a locked entry/exit door that is inside the Sheriff‘s office. This vault still exists and is located in the basement of the historic 1915 Courthouse, which has been off limits to the public for the past 35 years.
“I met with the Mohave County Court Security Chief and talked about documents I found detailing the layout of the Sheriff’s office in 1953. After describing some of the particulars in the documents to the Security Chief, he took me into the old Sheriff’s office and allowed me to enter restricted areas, shoot photographs of any area I wanted, including the oak chair the Forest Service worker sat on while waiting for the Sheriff, and then permitted me to enter, photograph and fully examine the interior of the concrete vault where two ETs vanished!
“Deputies knew the Sheriff would want to personally question the ‘two strange looking men’ and said that to the Forest Service worker, who then sat down on that oak chair I mentioned, still right by the door to the Detention Room (Concrete Vault). This was an extraordinary discovery for me. No changes after 60 years!
“When the Sheriff arrived and was briefed about what happened he no doubt had a flashback to what happened in 1947, then again in 1950. This had the same sulfur smell of being the hell he already went through and it was back again on May 24, 1953! Whether from a secret promise to himself, or to those with him at the Sheriff’s office, Sheriff Porter was ready to deal with this and did so just moments after stepping into the concrete vault to confirm the ‘two strange looking men’ who had been locked up inside had VANISHED without a trace. No one saw anything!”
THE REMOVAL OF THE CRAFT AND WHERE IT WAS TAKEN
Harry Drew points out, and rightfully so, that there has been a great deal of conjecture about how the craft that came down were removed, how they were able to make the journey over such seemingly rough terrain, and where all the recovered objects ended up. The retrieval is a fascinating mystery in itself. The wherefores can all be found in the works of Mr. Drew, on his web site and in the various interviews he has given to us and others. https://www.kingmanufocrashes.com/
Interviews with Harry Drew On Our YouTube Channel, “Mr UFOs Secret Files”
By Timothy Green Beckley
Recently I was a guest on Frank Morano’s “The Other Side Of Midnight” show on WABC, a 50,000 watt station out of Manhattan. I have become a “regular” on the show and together Frankie and I talk about some very twisted topics. And instead of doing the interviews over the telephone, I hop into a cab at 2 AM and head uptown and show myself in the station’s studio. I love the idea of a “hot mic,” I love radio.
On this particular show the subject turned to the recent sighting of an unidentified object that crashed into the sea off the Hawaiian Islands. The video had caused quite the hub bub on the Islands, being replayed on local TV channels for a few days.
I have always loved the Islands. Have visited there for “research purposes” several times. I have collected any number of stories regarding the strange unidentified objects that are often seen before “disaster strikes.”
My “Kahuna Power“ book contains a great deal of valuable information on the topic some of which I excerpt for purposes of this article.
ON A VISION QUEST
Before I went on my Hawaiian vision quest, I had heard about the strange phenomenon of fireballs from Arte Johnson, actor, comedian and at one time a regular on TV’s Laugh In series. I had been a stringer for the Enquirer and some of the lesser tabloids and regularly interviewed celebrities. To satisfy my own curiosity, I always tossed in a question or two pertaining to any personal belief or experiences with UFOs or the paranormal they might have had. Quite often I was rewarded with a fascinating story, some of which can be found in my literary masterpiece, UFOs Among The Stars.
Arte revealed that he and his wife had been making pilgrimages to the islands for quite a few years and had made friends with the Kahuna, the local shamans who have learned to utilize the powers of the mind to their fullest extent, enabling devotees to walk on fiery coals and to perform other feats of mind-over-matter.
Because of their willingness to accept that which is often considered taboo, Arte says that the Kahuna have taken both him and Gisela into their confidence, and have shown them what they consider to be the relentless wanderings of the dead.
“There’s a place on the Big Island,” says Arte, “where you can see lights which the local natives believe to be the spirits of unworthy souls, those who have not found their way into the equivalent of the Hawaiian heaven. We’ve seen that many times. They’re fireballs in the distance, and they travel from right to left over the harbor at Kona. They travel the same path all the time. The natives claim that in order to keep them away, you must swear at them. Well, since we started seeing them, we’ve learned to swear a lot.”
According to the entertainer, the meandering lights will often arrive in twos and threes, and then split up before they drop below the horizon. Johnson admits that he’s baffled.
“Personally,” he says, “I have no idea what they could be. The only airport in the area closes at sundown, so those lights don’t come from it, and we have seen these things at one and two in the morning. There certainly remains a big question in my mind. Until I find an answer, I have to think that maybe the natives are right, and that we are actually seeing ghostly apparitions. That’s as good an explanation as any. Before going to Hawaii, I never thought to believe in anything along these lines, but I’ve since found that many of the Hawaiians’ so-called superstitions have a basis in reality. For me, they’ve borne fruit!”
As my metaphysically minded colleague Maria Carta noted on our flight from the islands back to Kennedy Airport, “One almost gets the impression that there are more gods and spirits floating around in the Hawaiian nether-regions than there are people living in this wonderful land.”
“The truth is,” my psychic friend reflected, “that there are so many gods that nobody can remember their names. Therefore, there is even a name for all the gods as a group.”
Maria (a recognized psychic on the mainland) and I had flown to the Hawaiian Islands in 1986 as part of a research pilgrimage. With my lifelong interest in unidentified objects, which had gotten me the monocle MR UFO, naturally I wasn’t returning to my digs without looking into the matter of the mysterious fireballs Arte Johnson had been so excited about when I had spoken with him a decade before our travels.
Believe it or not, the islanders have a name for their version of UFOs or spook lights. They identified the specters as the akualete. Early in the trip, we hooked up with Kalani Hanohano, one of the most knowledgeable experts on the folklore of the islands whose now defunct journal Full Moon was read by scholars and laymen all over the world. Kalani amassed a huge file of anecdotal material pertaining to the akualete, which often appear at night, taking on the form of fireballs shooting across the sky and then evaporating or exploding in midair, breaking up into small flames, each moving and withering on their own, indicating that these puffs of light are animate objects. Much of the material here was supplied by Kalani.
Most often, the akualete are thought of by the Hawaiians as either ancestral or nature spirits. Mind you, they don’t dismiss them as being extraterrestrial in origin, it’s just not a theory that is easily applicable to their magically inclined heritage.
One resident related a fascinating tale involving the akualete and his more or less superstitious family. In this case, which was told to me by an elderly gentleman living on Maui, a mixed marriage had taken place, which was not acceptable to one side of the family due to racial and religious differences. One of the husband’s cousins brought in a Kahuna, who recited a prayer, the result of which brought a fireball to the bride and groom’s house. Neighbors saw the bright object fall on the house. The old Kahuna priest, however, could not properly execute the prayer because it required long breath control. He collapsed and was rushed to the hospital, where he lay dying.
The fireball had no real effect on the house. The elderly man told me that it was not because the Kahuna failed in his prayer, but because the young groom was the descendant of the Ma’iola god and had not needed to swear to render the fireball impotent.
In another instance, there was an 88-year-old woman living at Maunalani Heights on Oahu who said that in the 1940s she was startled by a bright light at her front door. It was a fireball. She said that someone in her family was against her. She prayed for divine guidance, and in a dream that night she learned that one family member was jealous of her.
I also learned that a male Hawaiian living in the Kailua area on the Kona Coast of Hawaii said that when he was a young man, a fireball of bright yellow light crashed through the air and flew over and under some trees. He was just about to swear at it when the akualete smashed into a tree and exploded into lots of small flames.
Fireball witnesses are apparently plentiful. I had no trouble finding people who had seen them. One young man told me that while he was driving down Old Pali Road on Oahu a fireball passed slowly in front of his car. The engine died. But as soon as the fireball left, the engine kicked into life again.
In another case, two men were driving along the same Old Pali Road when a fireball appeared. The driver stopped the car, got out and started to swear. The fireball broke up into small balls. The driver told me that those flaming fragments become little mythical men called e’epa, elemental beings no doubt!
A 17-year-old female once saw a fireball hovering above her head at about fifty feet. It spun in flight and then crashed to the ground. A man and his wife spotted a huge luminous blue fireball that fell almost at their feet. When the wife tried to touch it, it reared up and flew away.
BLAZING STARS AND FLYING FLAMES
Earthlights have been long associated with erupting volcanoes. A couple of years back, I flew to Costa Rica as my alter ego Mr. Creepo on American Express travel points to film a low budget horror epic titled Skin Eating Jungle Vampires. Yet, despite the primary reason for my trip, I could not let the paranormal take a backseat to anything else. (Besides, the jeep my lead actress Carla Anderson and I rented didn’t have one!)
If you’ve been to Costa Rica, you realize there isn’t much in the way of highway markers to lead you in the right (or any) direction. So we were lost in the jungle for two days before we arrived at our destination. The Arenal volcano is always blowing its stack. Some days it would be less active. Other days you would think the volcano was going to spew forth molten lava like it last did a few years ago, killing several people.
On our way, we stopped wherever we could to refuel and look for a compass (almost impossible to find anywhere in the country). Nearing the volcano, we had a bite to eat at a restaurant where the lady proprietor spoke English (Spanish is the national language). When we mentioned UFOs, her eyes lit up.
“They have been around the volcano where you are going for years,” she told us while running back and forth to the kitchen. “The locals believe that the objects draw on the energy of Arenal.”
The “Arenal Lights,” we were told, are most often described as “blazing stars” or “flying flames.” Seen at night, they are bright green or orange like the end of a hot poker. Supposedly there is some sort of hidden base beneath the volcano.
Likewise, in Popocatepeti, Mexico, UFOs have been seen and photographed skyrocketing in and out of the active volcano over the course of the last few years (surf over to JeffRense.com for more details). We have also been told that there have been many sightings of earthlights in the twilight around Mount St. Helen’s in Washington, just above its rim at 8300 feet. Many of these luminous objects were seen just before Mount St. Helen’s last major eruption, and there was another spate of UFOs seen there in 2004-2005. So what should we expect but another “blowup” shortly?
One thing our extensive research has shown us is that the volcanoes of Hawaii have it all over any other volcanoes in the world as far as strange phenomena go, tying in directly with the state’s patron fire goddess, known as Madame Pele.
Madame Pele is the Polynesian goddess of fire. Many Hawaiians consider her to be very real. Many more who pride themselves on being “civilized and sophisticated” would nevertheless think twice about doing anything to offend her. When she first came to Hawaii, legend has it Madame Pele took up residence in the crater on Diamond Head, which is the famous landmark at the end of Waikiki Beach. When the islands had their first leader, Kamehameha, she moved to Kilauea. She favored the great leader and took his side during his early conquests, causing the volcano to erupt at the right time to cut off enemy troops with her lava.
Madame Pele is actually said to live in the pit crater of Halemaumau, which is in the center of Kilauea’s caldera (cauldron). She is both loved and feared. You do not offend Pele. Chances are that nothing will happen if you do, but then…who knows? Something may just happen.
The old Hawaiian legend has it that shortly before an eruption, Madame Pele makes an appearance in human form. This is her way of warning the people to beware. On May 14, 1924, at Waiohinu in the southwest province of Ka’u on the Big Island, The Honolulu Advertiser reported that a resident had seen a tall, strange but beautiful woman dressed in white and with flowing red hair.
At the time, there was very little tourism in Hawaii, and the natives tended to know each other. The individual was a stranger. Several other people reported seeing the same unusual woman walking along a country lane. She spoke to no one and was not seen again. Four days later, on May 18, Kilauea, which had been rumbling for nearly a month, exploded. Huge, towering clouds of dust rose more than 20,000 feet above the crater. An eight-ton boulder was lifted into the air and deposited a quarter of a mile away.
Madame Pele had given her warning.
THE PHANTOM HITCHHIKER
Recently a man was traveling from Kamuela to Hilo. It was about eight o’clock at night and he was on a lonely stretch of Saddle Road. He suddenly saw a woman standing beside the road. He pulled over. He asked her where she was going and she said, “To Hilo.” He gave her a lift. She sat in the back seat. She was quiet. A few miles later, he turned around to say something to her, but she was gone. Frightened, he floored the gas pedal and sped into Hilo to tell someone that he had had Madame Pele in his car.
I spoke to a bus driver who had a frightening experience. He told me that late one night he was driving his bus on the volcano road when he spotted an elderly woman waiting at the bus stop. He picked her up. She was the only passenger on the bus and she told him where she would like to get off. When he reached the spot, he stopped the bus and opened the door. He waited for the woman to get off, but she didn’t. He turned to see where she was. She was gone. The experience scared him so much that he quit the job.
Our friend, Joseph Ilda, a herbal healer who was nearing ninety when we met him, had seen Pele twice and says he can tell from the way she is dressed what kind of disaster is likely to transpire.
“Dressed as a white ghost, it means that there will soon be a volcanic eruption,” he contends. “If she appears in a long cape similar to the one worn by the late Hawaiian kings, you can rest assured that there will be a tidal wave or hurricane.”
On the other hand, if Pele is dressed in black, Joseph feels that “sudden death” or a “great tragedy” is not likely to be more than 24 hours away.
Joseph Ilda feels somehow that the ability to see Madame Pele is inherited.
“This type of thing usually runs in the family,” he says. “My grandfather was stopped on the road by her and told he shouldn’t pass. Later, he found there was some sort of disaster just up ahead. Another time, the spirits spoke to him and told him where some old Hawaiian silver pieces were buried. He found them exactly as he was directed.”
Joseph was driving with three young men when he saw Pele at the side of the road. She was dressed in a long cloak and was soaking wet. “We went on our way fishing,” he said, “and I said we should turn around. I told them that there was going to be trouble in three days. I was so certain about this that I tried to contact my wife, who had gone away fishing on the other side of the island. When I couldn’t reach her myself, I had the police get in touch with her to tell her to return home before the rains and wind hit. Luckily, she got back before the road washed out.”
“Funny thing is, there was considerable damage all around our house. The roofs of the two homes on either side of us were blown right off and one of them even damaged our back fence, but our house wasn’t touched at all.”
Proof once again that Madame Pele warns those who believe in her!
WHO IS MADAME PELE?
She is a goddess who legend has it came from Tahiti to live in Hawaii with her seven brothers and six sisters. All of the children were experts in some form of sorcery and in the hula. Pele can assume many body and object forms. She can change herself into a blazing flame, a beautiful young girl or an old hag.
When Madame Pele is a beautiful woman, she is given to ferocious tantrums of rage and jealousy. In a snit, she can stamp her foot on the ground and cause it to tremble with earthquakes. Cracks will suddenly appear in the soil and there will be huge torrents of molten lava, which will chase those who have angered her. Sometimes the fire goddess will ride the first wave of liquid rock, screaming oaths and throwing flaming boulders at her enemies. This is the side of Madame Pele that is seen most often. Her most prominent emotions are all negative—anger, jealousy, bad temper and sulkiness.
These are all aspects of things we have heard in regard to our alien planet while conducting this study. Whatever you can say or conclude about Pele, she is certainly an important aspect of the world we live on.

DIANE TESSMAN – FROM UFO INVESTIGATOR TO COSMIC CITIZEN
By Sean Casteel
Diane Tessman has been in contact with “otherworldly entities” from her earliest childhood. While some people merely dabble in the study of ufology before moving on to some other temporary obsession, Diane has been immersed in the reality of the UFO phenomenon her entire life. She has written about her experiences extensively and has gathered a following eager to hear the messages from her spirit guide, a being named Tibus.
Timothy Green Beckley, the head honcho of the publishing company Inner Light/Global Communications, has recently published a greatly expanded version of Diane’s first book, from 1983, with new material and updates, making it over 300 large format pages. The newly-renovated book is called “The Real Life UFO Transformation of Diane Tessman: A Continuous Close Encounter with Future Man — Space Man.”
What makes Diane’s life journey so fascinating – and so different from others who have related their personal endeavors with the Ultra-terrestrials – is that she had made the full transition from UFO investigator for the influential MUFON and APRO groups to an abductee whose experiences have been verified (as much as scientifically possible) by several members of the academic community, to an individual who is actually able, she says, to communicate with her “Special One,” a human-looking individual who she has come to believe represents “future human.” Diane does not deny the possibility that some UFOs may come from outer space, other dimensions or parallel dimensions. “It’s a big universe,” she says, “and therefore I am open to a multitude of theories.”
“Where do I begin?” Diane asks in her preface. “It was a long time ago that I wrote ‘The Transformation’ on a $5.00 garage sale typewriter, which, in 1983, was considered a very old-fashioned typewriter. It was a heavy beast which weighed about a ton. I knew I had a lot to say. Much of it was not generated by my mind but catapulted into my head from outside. It was from an ‘unknown,’ but I somehow knew and loved that unknown.”
It is most reassuring to read Diane’s continual testimony about her contact with Tibus being rooted in love. The fact that she “knew and loved that unknown” extends beyond herself to the Planet Earth itself, which is in dire need of some form of intervention in order to survive. Diane writes that, in spite of the passage of many years since she wrote her first book, the message of her contact Tibus remains the same: he is part of an effort to love and protect Mother Earth and all her lifeforms and to guide humankind through this time of change and upheaval.
“Throughout the years,” Diane writes, “he predicted what has come to pass with climate chaos and change, the tragic extinction of many species, social unrest, mass hysteria, mass insanity, and even deadly viruses which emanate from humans transgressing upon nature. However, Tibus had a great hope for our planet way back in 1983, just as he does today. “
AN EARLY AWAKENING
Diane had long had an ongoing relationship with the study of the nuts-and-bolts aspects of the UFO phenomenon, being a member of the Mutual UFO Network and the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization, but, in 1981, she decided to explore another aspect of UFO contact by undergoing hypnotic regression with well-known psychologist Dr. R. Leo Sprinkle. Under hypnosis, Diane recalled her earliest UFO encounter:
“I’m playing with Pat, my dog, on the farm. And I had stayed out late and Mom is inside cooking. Father’s inside. I don’t know where my brother is. The stars are clear. It is chilly, November. I am seven years old. And I have contact with something that has contacted me before, but I’m not allowed to remember. I want very much to remember them, though, and I try very hard. But this night I worry about Pat, my dog, when I go with them. They say he is all right.
“And there is someone onboard I know in particular, and I’ve known him each time. I’m not scared and I’m special, as other people are, but that to function in this life, in the mundane part of life that I have ahead of me, as protection, I cannot know the other side of me for a while, nor remember all that has happened. I love my mother and father, but every time I see them, I feel that this is where I belong. I always hate to leave. I always want to remember, but at that point it is not allowed.”
Diane says the entities she sees onboard the craft look fairly much like humans.
“The one I know best is human,” she says, “and I love him. There is something between us.”
She calls the one she knows and loves her “Special One,” and she will eventually come to call him “Tibus.” It seems that Diane was never formally “introduced” to Tibus, but rather had known him all her life without any conscious recall of “how.”
As part of this experience at age seven, Diane says “I know that I will be watched – or monitored – throughout my life, until the point comes where I finally enter the world where I belong, where they are. I’m reassured.”
Tibus is quite the vocal presence in Diane’s work. The Future Man Space Man of the new book’s title, describes their relationship as “an experiment in shared consciousness between two individuals. Our sharing is a thing of joy and wonder to both of us, but we could not be sure at first that it would turn out as well as it has.”
Tibus recalled that when Diane was typing out the original “Transformation,” she was sitting on the floor of her duplex apartment because she couldn’t afford any furniture.
“I couldn’t be sure,” Tibus says, “that our shared consciousness would work, but, as the book progressed, I realized my messages were getting through loud and clear. I send them telepathically and they land in her head, often a few paragraphs long, then she hurries to write them down accurately.”
There are some mind-bending aspects of time travel in the relationship.
“As individuals,” Tibus says, “Diane and I have much in common. You might even wonder if she is me in a previous lifetime or I am her in a future lifetime. Ah, well, possibly so. She and I always proclaim that we are both separate, physical individuals, but we do acknowledge symbiosis, not only in working with our messages but as individual spirits as well.
“The difference is,” he continues, “I am of the future from her point of view and yours. But all time is simultaneous! I have always promised that Earth and the human species do make it into the future. As a human from the future, I am proof of this. However, I realize that having a conduit of shared consciousness with Diane is not what most scientists call ‘proof.’ My coworkers on starships and time-ships are indeed extraterrestrials from far different planets, as well as humans of my (future) time. We do have the key to time travel, and you will soon also.
“The entire magnificent galaxy and the incredible universe beyond awaits humankind at The Moment – a moment of humankind’s own choosing. Out there, that-a-way, is a magnificent quilt of multiple interdimensional worlds. But first mankind needs to make one small step up the awareness ladder. I speak of humankind as one collective consciousness.
“However, you have to CARE about the fate of Earth and her animals and CARE about your fellow humans. Be an activist in bringing our new world!”
MORE ON TIME TRAVEL
The predominate theme of “The Real Life UFO Transformation of Diane Tessman” grapples with the nature of time and the many different ways it is manifested and experienced. The new book includes an interview with Diane conducted by one of her fellow UFO researchers, who goes by the name Quantum Shaman.
Quantum Shaman asks Diane: Why are you so involved and even defensive of the concept that UFO occupants are time-traveling humans? I know you have faced a lot of criticism from people who hold fast that UFO occupants are aliens from far distant solar systems.
Diane: This is the first sentence of my book, “Future Humans and the UFOs,” published in February 2020: “I do not deny that there are probably thousands of advanced extraterrestrial races in the galaxy and that some may visit Earth. However, I think we have ignored what is right before our eyes: our children’s children’s children are the occupants in most or all unidentified flying objects.”
I am not excluding aliens from being among our strange visitors. I am merely trying to bring to light the fact that we have not seriously considered that time traveling humans are here also, in the flying vehicles that we will create in the relatively near future.
Quantum Shaman: What is your conclusion then about abductions? Do humans actually abduct other humans?
Diane: Of course they do! We abduct each other all the time. What else is kidnapping? We murder each other, we molest each other, “we” being our species. In our history, we have taken each other as slaves and we have committed genocide. Future humans may want to know more about the biology of their ancestors, either for scientific research or perhaps they need our DNA for some reason. Certainly most abductions do include tissue samples being taken.
Humans are a flawed, adolescent species. I do not claim that UFO occupants are angels. We can be cruel and self-serving. Isn’t this how we current humans are too? We fail to consider that future humans visit us from all different levels of time. Of course, once we conquer time, we are perhaps timeless. However, there is no doubt that our species is behind in spiritual evolution while we excel at tech and science.
What will we be in 500,000 years, which is just a drop in the bucket of time? Will we have grown even more selfish? Or will we have evolved spiritually? Long story short, Tibus is not from 35 years ahead, but from hundreds or possibly thousands of years ahead. He is truly timeless in that he is a citizen of the cosmos as much as he is a citizen of Earth. He has learned the lesson, finally, that humans have taken so long to learn. And so, there is no contradiction between Tibus’ spiritual messages and the future human premise.
TIBUS HOLDS FORTH ON THE FLUID NATURE OF TIME
In one of the many messages from Tibus included in the book, he talks about transcending time altogether.
“Most people on Earth accept that time ticks along just as the river keeps flowing downstream and that this is an absolute that can never be overcome. However, with advanced technology and/or with a mind/soul of a higher frequency, one may head upstream just as if you had a motorboat to help you go against the current. Or, one may simply stand on the bank of the river and observe what was and what will be, as well as what is. Also, you must realize that there are other rivers (other timeframes, other dimensions/frequencies) flowing consecutively with the Earth river.
“We have stood on the bank of Earth’s timeline/history since human life began on Earth. There are souls among us whose unique essence very much belongs to our frequency/dimension who volunteer to live on Earth for a lifetime, awaiting contact from us, for this promise from HOME never leaves their hearts and souls. In a sense, we infiltrate. Our star people are on lifetime ‘espionage’ missions. However, these missions are ones which are only to enlighten Earth, to gently guide her, to quietly raise the raise the frequency level, to pave the way for a higher dimension but within Earth’s historical timeline.
“We do not overtly interfere or change history or meddle unless individual crises do not allow otherwise; and even then we often choose to allow the mundane dimension’s karmic debts to be enacted, lived out, fulfilled – so that the higher dimension may occur naturally.”
SCIENCE AND SPIRIT
For nearly four decades, Diane and Tibus have run a joint venture called “The Star Network” with which they reach out to fellow believers with a regularly published newsletter and monthly group meditations intended to help envision a new and better day for Mother Earth.
“Channelers usually give a message and then move on,” Tibus writes, “never going back to be accountable for the information they offered. For perhaps the first time in the world of channeling, Diane and I are happy to offer input on our original messages where need be.”
Which is a big part of why “The Real Life UFO Transformation of Diane Tessman” is such a valuable source of information. The new book not only revisits Diane’s classic “The Transformation,” it also adds a perspective from the future in which many of the messages are reevaluated or given the benefit of years of hindsight, an important factor in any endeavor that deals with the bending of the fabric of time.
“This book contains science and it contains spirit,” Tibus says. “Reality is composed of both.”

“Future Humans And the UFOs,” by Diane Tessman
“UFOs Déjà vu,” by Timothy Beckley (and others)
From UFOs, to large hairy monsters, John Keel chased them all half way around the world.
An Interview by Timothy Green Beckley
Originally published in the UFO Review circa 1980s. Resurrected by Brent Raynes via Alternative Realities.
From the upper Mile, to the lower Ganges and the Roof of the World in Tibet, to remote country villages in West Virginia and Kentucky, John A. Keel traveled extensively in his unending search for the strange, the mysterious, the unexplainable. He has been in over 40 countries and has lived in Paris, Baghdad, Cairo, Calcutta, Barcelona, Hollywood, New Orleans and a thousand exotic places in between. For many years, he wrote a syndicated newspaper column which appeared in major dailies throughout the world and his countless magazine articles appeared in nearly every leading periodical. His monthly column “Modern Mysteries” appeared in SAGA magazine for ten years. He was editor and publisher of ANOMALY, a newsletter devoted to scientific mysteries, and served on the Board of Directors of the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained (S.I.T.U.), founded by Ivan T. Sanderson. He was also the editor of the Society’s journal, Pursuit.
In the 1950s, Mr. Keel worked for the Department of the Army as Chief of Continuity and Production for the American Forces Network (AFN) in Frankfurt, Germany, the world’s largest radio network. In 1952, he wrote and produced a radio program, Things in the Sky, about unidentified flying objects which was heard by millions throughout Europe and very favorably received. He also wrote and produced broadcasts from the original castle of Frankenstein in Germany, and from the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
An accomplished lexicographer, he had been science editor of Funk & Wagnalls’ encyclopedias and geography editor of the Funk & Wagnalls College Dictionary. It was Mr. Keel who inserted the first definition of the “abominable snowman” and “flying saucers” into the dictionary and thus into formal acceptance by the scholarly community.
Mr. Keel had also been active in television, serving as head writer on programs starring Merv Griffin, Robert G. Lewis, Gene Rayburn, and others. He was employed by Goodson & Todman Productions for a number of years and also was head writer for station WPIX in New York. Author of several screenplays, he wrote 200 slapstick comedies for Trans-Lux and had worked on numerous television situation comedies. His humorous novel, The Fickle Finger of Fate, published in 1966, sold 800,000 copies.
In the early 1970s, Mr. Keel became a special consultant to the Federal Government, carrying out assignments for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, the Bureau of Radiology and the Air Force office of Technical Research.
A regular on many radio and television talk shows, Mr. Keel appeared with Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, Hugh Downs, David Letterman, Long John Nebel, Barry Farber and many others. He also lectured widely and received two honorary Ph.D.’s for his work in herpetology and archaeology. He is well-known in many different fields. For example, he once wrote a column for U.S. Camera magazine and was regarded as a leading expert in 8mm sound filming. Among magicians he was known as the inventor of many ingenious magic tricks and an outstanding commentator on the psychology of magic. In religious circles, he had been labeled “the world’s greatest theologian” and his books are widely quoted by religious writers and evangelists. In Europe, he has been the subject of much controversy and many books have been written about him, such as the ever popular book The Dark Gods by the British authors Anthony Roberts and Geoff Filbertson. The Interview:
Timothy Green Beckley: Tell us John. What happened to your beard?
John A. Keel: Ha! I see this is going to be one of those in-depth, highly personal interviews. I shaved off the beard many years ago…but a lot of pictures were taken of me in the 1960’s when I still had it. And those pictures are still appearing in print. So everyone assumes I’m bearded. I’m not. I’m old, fat and balding. People are always disappointed when they meet me. They expect Cary Grant…with a beard. And they get Ernest Borgnine.
TGB: Back in the 1960’s and early 1970’s, you were one of the most prominent and most visible ufologists in the world. Then suddenly there was silence. You disappeared. There were rumors that the government had silenced you, or that the notorious Men in Black had gotten to you. What happened?
JAK: I’m afraid the explanation is very mundane. I felt my work with UFOs was finished. I moved on to other things. And, unfortunately, I had some major health problems which curtailed my activities somewhat. I’ve suffered from hypoglycemia…low blood sugar…all my life, and I had tuberculosis, even appendicitis. Want to hear about my operation?
TGB: Uhhh…maybe some other time, John. Tell us about how you first became interested in Fortean matters…the weird and the unusual.
JAK: I grew up on a farm outside Buffalo, N.Y. so I was surrounded by all kinds of animals from the beginning. Our neighbor on the next farm used to go out and catch rattlesnakes and sell them. I went with him and that was how I first became interested in reptiles…herpetology. I devoured books by Raymond Ditmars, the great snake authority, and so on.
When I was around ten years old, that would be 1940, people on a back road near our farm began seeing a very tall, hair covered creature. They thought it was a gorilla of some kind. It scared several people badly and the farmers all went out with shotguns to track it down. Of course, they never found it. But that was my introduction to Bigfoot. Nobody knew about Bigfoot then. Ivan Sanderson, the zoologist, wouldn’t publish his studies until ten or fifteen years later.
TGB: So you became a believer in the abominable snowman-type creature at an early age?
JAK: Please. Belief never entered into it. I knew some of the witnesses. I accepted their stories. I accepted the fact that a giant “gorilla” was on the loose. You know, I also saw my first UFO when I was very young. I was about seven. We were driving outside a little town called Canseraga, N.Y. one night when we saw a huge, brilliantly illuminated sphere on top of a nearby hill. My stepfather stopped the car and we watched it. At first, we thought it was a barn burning or something. Then it slowly took off, rose straight up a short distance, and shot out of sight. This thing was burned into my memory. I never forgot it. But many years later I asked my parents about it and they had absolutely no memory of the episode whatsoever.
TGB: That would be in 1937.
JAK: That’s right. 1937 was a strange year. There were floods and earthquakes in New York state. And some very weird meteorological phenomena. Years later, when I was sifting old newspapers for UFO reports I came across several. And even back then, back in 1937, the New York Times was explaining away the sightings. Something chased a railroad train across the Midwest and the Times said it was the planet Venus.
TGB: You’re saying it wasn’t?
JAK: I’ll tell you a secret. Venus doesn’t really exist. There never was a planet Venus. The astronomers made it up…just like they make up things like Black Holes. Did you ever really think about the Black Hole theory? Since a Black Hole can’t give off or reflect light, we will never know if they exist or not. So the theorists are perfectly safe. Their theory can never be proven or disproven. I’m afraid Charles Fort was right. Astronomy is 90% bullshit. Each new generation of astronomers throws out all the beloved theories of the previous generation. Fort suggested that all the stars are actually hanging from strings on a velvet backdrop. He was probably just as accurate as the guys who dreamed up the Black Holes. Or the ones who invented Venus so they would have a convenient explanation for UFOs that chase trains.
TGB: Do we trace a little note of cynicism here?
JAK: We Forteans are a cynical lot. The anti-UFO factions never quite understood us. We are ten times more skeptical than the so-called professional skeptics, but we are willing to examine the evidence. They aren’t.
For example, in my book STRANGE MUTANTS I tell the story of a man who was riding horseback in Ohio when a giant snake suddenly attacked him, bit him in the foot and crippled him. When I did an article on this case, the snake experts told me there was no such snake in Ohio…or anywhere else. But the man’s wife happened to see my article and she wrote to me in detail about what he had suffered since. He’s crippled to this day. And the symptoms she described and all, are unknown to herpetology! We don’t know what kind of snake it was. We’ll never know. But we have the evidence…the poor house and the man’s foot. If any snake expert wants to interview these people, he could learn a lot. But the experts in any subject are usually most reluctant to investigate anything firsthand.
TGB: Like the college professor who said the people in West Virginia were seeing a Sandhill Crane?
JAK: Exactly. Back in the 1960’s hundreds of people saw a huge winged, human-shaped creature. It chased cars. That college professor never went near West Virginia. I did. And I carried a picture of a Sandhill Crane with me. When I showed it to the witnesses they laughed. No way could they have mistaken an ordinary bird for a six-foot tall monster.
TGB: That was the famous Mothman?
JAK: Yes. Some newspapermen came up with that name for it. The Batman TV series was very popular at that time. But the Mothman episodes were a major breakthrough in my research. I outline it in STRANGE MUTANTS.
TGB: What kind of breakthrough?
JAK: I really can’t summarize it in an interview. You have to read the book.
TGB: Suppose I don’t want to shell out $9.95 for the book?
JAK: That’s tough, then. You’ll just have to spend the rest of your life wallowing in ignorance.
TGB: Actually, we have read the book. You cover a lot of subjects…ten-foot-long earthworms…
JAK: They’re found in Australia.
TGB: Vampire bats.
JAK: One of my favorite subjects. Did you know that bats can’t land? If one touches the ground it has a helluva time getting airborne again. That’s why they land upside down on tree limbs or in caves on rock formations. They hang upside down and when they want to depart they just let themselves drop. This gives them sufficient airspeed to start flying. The Air Force released some bats in a room strung with wires once…and they were able to fly in and out and around the wires with great ease in the dark. They use a kind of radar. That little experiment cost the American taxpayer some big bucks. I once met the Air Force officer who was in charge of it. He could talk about bats for hours. And he did! But my favorite military experiment was something the Navy did a few years back. They spent over $200,000 to find out why a frisbee flies. I think they had some cockamaney notion of attaching a grenade to a frisbee.
TGB: You seem well informed on government experiments of all kinds.
JAK: I was consulting at H.E.W. when they hired a company to find out why children fall off the tricycles. They spent $25,000 to rediscover the law of gravity!
TGB: Do you think the government spends any money on UFOs or Mothmen?
JAK: First of all, the government does not spend money. It throws money away! In the 1950’s, General Twining of the Air Force said publicly that the Air Force was then spending one million dollars a year on the UFO “problem.” But as near as I could find out, and remember I was investigating from inside the government, no one in the Air Force…or any other branch…knows anything about UFOs, cares anything about UFOs, and certainly spends no time investigating the subject. In the 1960’s, a civilian secretary was in charge of the UFO desk at the Pentagon. She was paid around $7,000 a year to cut out newspaper clippings. When IDA [Institutes of Defense Analysis] decided to hire some university to investigate UFOs, they were turned down by Columbia, M.I.T. and other big, prestigious universities because they weren’t offering enough money. Only $300,000. Finally, Colorado U. accepted the assignment and I predicted they would get the Air Force to double the grant before they were through. And they did. Everyone knows what happened to that Colorado UFO project. It was a total debacle. Once again the Defense Dept. engaged the U.S. taxpayer in sexual intercourse.
TGB: You mentioned IDA. What’s that?
JAK: Another boondoggle. They have their own building near the Pentagon. They’re funded by the National Security Agency. In the 1960’s, the UFO mess was turned over to them. They made most of the decisions, not the Air Force. The drones in IDA spend most of their time playing war games with computers.
TGB: Based on your experiences, does anybody in government do anything?
JAK: In Washington, the rush hour starts at 3 p.m. People arrive at their offices around 9 a.m., drink coffee until 11, then plan where they’re going for lunch. They return from lunch around 2:30 and then get ready for the 3 p.m. rush hour. The only people who really work are the peons…the lowest salaried employees. They come to work at about 8 a.m. and leave at 5. They’re not even allowed to make private phone calls. They work in jobs like payroll, or running other benefits and services for the other employees. If an outsider…a taxpayer…shows up asking for some service, they are thrown into total confusion. When I was at H.E.W. they had 105,000 people on the payroll, most of them doing nothing. They were trying to cut back then. Today they have 150,000 on the payroll, doing even less. Ronnie Reagan promised to cut back…so I suppose in a year or two there will be 200,000 doing nothing.
TGB: Washington, D.C., is certainly a long way from Tibet. Weren’t you the last American to enter Tibet before the Chinese invaded?
JAK: Yes. That was back in the 1950’s. Things are more relaxed in the 1980’s and some Americans have been allowed in, in recent years.
TGB: What was the Tibet like?
JAK: Bleak and cold. Sort of like my New York apartment. I was looking for the famous Abominable Snowman. I did see a tall, furry animal on the other side of a lake and the lamas with me said it was an ABSM. But it could have been a bear.
TGB: So you never caught up with the Abominable Snowman?
JAK: Or he never caught up with me. I’ve also chased Bigfoot here in USA. You know, they’ve been seen only a few miles outside of New York City, in New Jersey. In STRANGE MUTANTS I catalog quite a few sightings and list the characteristics they have in common…like the noises they make, the terrible odors they give off, their general behavior. They’re really an unpleasant lot.
TGB: I see you also have a chapter on something called “Bedroom Invaders.” What’s that?
JAK: That’s a puzzling form of psychic phenomena. People wake up in the middle of the night and find they are paralyzed…unable to move. They feel…even see…another presence in the room. Sometimes they are sexually assaulted by these entities. I’ve come across many instances of this in my investigations. In New England, it is known as “the old hag.” For some reason, many UFO witnesses, contactees in particular, suffer visitations of this sort after a UFO episode. It is one of the many factors that suggest there is a very close-tie in between UFO manifestations and psychic phenomena.
TGB: You were a pioneer in observing that tie-in. Now, today, people like Dr. Berthold Schwarz, the famous psychiatrist, Dr. Jacques Vallee and even Dr. J. Allen Hynek, seem to have jumped onto your bandwagon.
JAK: That’s right. When I first expressed my views in books like Operation Trojan Horse and Our Haunted Planet, I was met with quite a bit of opposition. Then investigators around the world began to use my methods and check out my material. Now all of the leaders in the field agree that psychic phenomena are closely linked with UFOs and that even some of our mysterious monsters are products of that psychic world. But for years, people like Hynek and Vallee fought my concepts.
TGB: So you’ve triumphed in the end. How does it feel?
JAK: It’s a hollow victory. We have just opened pandora’s box. Instead of solving the mystery, we’ve created many new ones.
TGB: How do the notorious Men in Black fit into all this? Do you think they really exist?
JAK: In the beginning, I thought the M.I.B. were just folklore…a ufological legend. Then I began encountering witnesses who had direct experiences with mystery men of all kinds. Men who couldn’t possibly have been connected with the government or Air Force…although they sometimes claimed to be. Others, such as Dr. Schwarz, uncovered M.I.B. cases independently. Obviously, there is more to this than anyone previously suspected. In STRANGE MUTANTS I give details on a number of baffling M.I.B. cases. It has always been my hope that one day we could actually corner one of these guys and get him to talk. Might torture him a little, like forcing him to listen to a Jim Moseley lecture or something.
TGB: That should make anyone talk!
JAK: Seriously, though…I’ve always considered the M.I.B. phenomenon to be one of the most important, least investigated and least understood aspects of this whole business. They are very real. They have a habit of turning up in the damnedest places at the damnedest times. They are definitely tied into the UFO mystery itself. But believers in extraterrestrial visitants have a hard time reconciling their beliefs with the presence of seemingly ordinary human beings in black suits who ride around in ordinary motor vehicles. Strangely enough, the professional skeptics have an even tougher time with the idea. Apparently, they can’t accept the notion of ordinary people in black Cadillacs either. So the M.I.B. are able to carry out their mysterious missions largely unnoticed and certainly unhindered. They’ve got the perfect cover. Disbelief!
TGB: It certainly looks that way. Tell us, where did you get the title STRANGE MUTANTS?
JAK: Well, I was thinking. Although UFOs and monsters have been seen throughout history, things really picked up after 1945…after the introduction of the atomic bomb. Few people realize that over 2,000 atom bombs have been set off in the earth’s atmosphere. The radioactive fallout has been horrendous, approaching the very dangerous level several times in recent years. Then there’s those miserable atomic power plants. They are a terrible danger, too. At hearings in Washington a few years ago, scientists and doctors attributed the deaths of 2,000 infants in the state of Michigan directly to the presence of the atomic power plants. They had overwhelming evidence. Yet the madness goes on.
John Fuller, an author well-known in ufology, wrote a book about a nuclear accident that took place in Michigan. It was called We Almost Lost Detroit. What he skimmed over was the fact that tall, hairy monsters were seen in the immediate vicinity of the Enrico Firmi Plant in Michigan just before it went blooey! Monsters have an uncanny habit of showing up around all these plants. It is quite possible, even quite probable, that many of the critters I have investigated and written about are, indeed, mutants…weird mutations of more ordinary animals produced by the radioactivity we are spreading over the world in our totally illogical, irresponsible fascination with genocide. In short, we have met the enemy and he is us.
Editors Note: I want to thank Tim Beckley, known widely as Mr. UFO, for granting me permission to use this great interview that he did with John Keel that appeared in his UFO Review, issue number 18, back in 1984. Mr. Beckley hardly needs an introduction. But, for convenience sake, I’ll use a fairly comprehensive biography from Amazon, where he is well-known for his many books:
Tim Beckley has had so many careers that even his own girlfriend doesn’t know what he does for a living…
Timothy Green Beckley has been described as the Hunter Thompson of UFOlogy by the editor of UFO magazine Nancy Birnes.
Since an early age his life has more or less revolved around the paranormal. At the age of three his life was saved by an invisible force. The house he was raised in was thought to be haunted. His grandfather saw a headless horseman.
Beckley also underwent out of body experiences starting at age six. And saw his first of three UFOs when he was but ten, and has had two more sightings since – including an attempt to communicate with one of these objects.
Tim grew up listening to the only all night talk show in the country that revolved around the strange and unexplained. Long John Nebel’s guests included the early UFO contactees who claimed to have visited other planets and built time machines in the desert. Tim was fascinated by everything that went bump in the night – or even in the daylight for that matter. Years later, Tim was to appear on Long John’s show numerous times and over the years has been a frequent guest on hundreds of programs which have come and gone just like ghosts in the night. He is a popular guest on Coast to Coast AM. Has appeared on William Shatners Weird Or What? And an episode of UFO Hunters regarding the dreaded Men In Black. He has his own podcast, Exploring the Bizarre and MR UFOs Secret Files, on YouTube.
Tim started his career as a writer early on – at age 14 he purchased a mimeograph machine and began to publish the Interplanetary News Service Report. Over the years he has written over 25 books on everything from rock music to the secret MJ12 papers. He has been a stringer for the national tabloids such as the Enquirer and editor of over 30 different magazines (most of which never lasted more than a couple of issues). His longest running effort was the newsstand publication UFO UNIVERSE which went for 11 years. Today he is the president of Inner Light/Global Communications and editor of the Conspiracy Journal and Bizarre Bazaar.
He is one of the few Americans ever to be invited to speak before closed door meetings on UFOs presided over by the late Earl of Clancarty at the House of Lords in England. He visited Loch Ness in Scotland while in the UK and went home with a belief that Nessie was somehow connected with dragons of mythology as well as strange discs engraved on cathedrals and ghostly phenomenon.
The Inner Light Publications and Global Communications’ catalog of books and video titles now number over 200, including the works of Tim R. Swartz, T. Lobsang Rampa, Commander X, Brad Steiger, John Keel, Tracy Twyman, Wendelle Stevens and a host of many other authors.
He probably knows more about the history of the UFO movement since the early 1950s than anyone today. Because of his fair and balanced approach he made friends with everyone regardless of whether or not he believed their stories. Tim has written over 30 books himself, and contributed to dozens more, including:
OUR ALIEN PLANET-THIS EERIE EARTH
SECRET PROPHECY OF FATIMA REVEALED
SUBTERRANEAN WORLDS INSIDE EARTH
DAVID BOWIE, UFOS, WITCHCRAFT, COCAINE AND PARANOIA
UFOS AMONG THE STARS (Celebrity encounters)
ROUND TRIP TO HELL IN A FLYING SAUCER
Tim is known among horror movie fans as Mr. Creepo. When asked his major cinema influences he mentions Nancy Reagan as having gotten him involved as a horror host. During the hay day of double features and Time Square grind houses he worked as a movie review critic as well as a publicist for several small film companies. His recent efforts include Skin Eating Jungle Vampires and Blood Sucking Vampire Freaks.

OR IS IT ALL A PROJECTED HOLOGRAM?
By Sean Casteel
It doesn’t matter really matter – the truth is “out there” somewhere regardless of if you are a “true believer” in all things spiritual and religious, an infrequent churchgoer, or even a full-fledged atheist.
If you are reading this, you may be wondering what could be the connection between UFOs, the Scriptures and the Signs, Symbols and Wonders of Biblical proportions that appear to be manifesting all over the world in what many see as “very troubled times.”
Are we to accept at face value the phantasmagorical stories told by those who claim to have been “taken up” (to where, one wonders?) – such as Whitley Strieber, Betty Andreasson Luca, and contactees like Orfeo Angelucci and George Van Tassel?
In a new book just out, as one of the authors, I ask, is a genuine religious experience the kind of thing that can be expressed in human language at all, or to a degree that a fellow individual, regardless of his religious persuasion can fully – or even halfway – understand it? And do the supernatural elements of UFOs and alien encounters constitute authentic contact with God or possibly His angelic messengers?
What is the difference between claiming to have seen religious miracles and simple, garden-variety madness? Is one a witness to the divine or a simple victim of mental disturbance?
Those are among the many questions grappled with in a recent offering from Tim Beckley’s Inner Light Publications. The complete title is “Sean Casteel’s UFOs, Armageddon, and Biblical Revelations: Signs, Symbols and “Wonders” – The Whole Truth.” Beckley has placed my name at the very top, but I can assure you that it is purely in an honorary sense, given the fact that there are nearly ten other contributors, including Beckley himself.
The book is the product of many years of experiences with and research into the paranormal, most specifically UFOs, their alien occupants and the often religious-spiritual overtones to contact between the aliens and ourselves. As some of the contributors to this book believe, the nature of genuine religious experience and encounters with extraterrestrials may be inseparable, may in fact be one and the same though called by different names and seen in vastly different contexts.
None of which is new, of course. From its very beginnings in the mid-20th century, the UFOs (at times dubbed “flying saucers”) of the modern era have been compared to angelic appearances in the Bible and seen as the driving force responsible for miracles attributed to all faiths throughout recorded history. What we have attempted to do here is to offer a survey of the religious implications of UFOs and the countless varied forms those phenomena take when they manifest in our all-too-limited physical dimension.
Along with some fresh approaches to the familiar ancient alien accounts, we have also provided an overview of Marian visions, which are much more frequent and well-documented than you may have realized. UFOs sightings in modern-day Israel are also included, as well as an analysis of why sightings in the Holy Land are so important to the entire world.
In an effort to be fair, the demonic take on the UFO phenomenon is the subject of a Q and A with prolific British author Nick Redfern, who believes there is a secret government group searching for ways to do battle with the demons bedeviling the U.S.
The religious and prophetic implications of UFOs and other forms of the paranormal are complicated, and we have provided no easy answers here. Is it even possible that there is only one single, perfect way of understanding? I think I can safely say, along with all the contributors to this book, that the answer to that question is a resounding, tantalizing, frustrating “No.”
VISIONS AND PROPHECIES OF THE LADY IN WHITE AS FIRST REVEALED IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION
Beckley provides some historical background on the subject of Marian apparitions, or appearances by “Mother Mary” down through the ages.
“She goes by various names in various cultures,” Beckley begins. “She is known as ‘The Woman of the Apocalypse’ or the ‘Lady of the Sun.’ (Rev 12:1-6) The apparition of a beautiful woman adorned in white is first thought to have been seen in a series of visions early in the Twentieth Century, and we have come to associate her with three shepherd children and the town of Fatima, Portugal. But the truth is ‘she’ has been appearing throughout history. In fact, the Book of Revelation identifies her in prophetic terms as being in association with a ‘great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns.’ In Biblical days, as now, visions of this lady are often a precursor to an ‘act of God’ and eventually to the end of all time, the destruction of humanity by godless forces who will roam the Earth.”
The verses from Revelation that Beckley refers to are these: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the Earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.” (Rev 12:1-6)
WHAT AND WHERE IS FATIMA?
Beckley then shifts his attention from an ancient era to times closer to our own.
He writes: “Fatima is a small city in central Portugal where the landscape is dry and rocky. For centuries, people made their living there raising sheep and other animals. In May 1917, three shepherd children — two girls and a boy — claimed they saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary. The children described Mary as “a lady dressed all in white, more brilliant than the sun.” Mary told the children that praying the rosary would end what was then called The Great War — World War I — which left 17 million dead.
“According to the children,” Beckley continues, “Mary appeared to them six times that year. In one appearance, Mary said a miracle would occur on Oct. 13, 1917. Initially the children were scolded and even threatened with death for spreading what were considered baseless stories. But pilgrims from all over the world gathered in Fatima on that date and awaited Mary’s appearance. In what came to be called the ‘Miracle of the Sun,’ many reported seeing visions in the sky while others reported miracles of healing. A newspaper of the day reported: ‘Before their dazzled eyes, the sun trembled, the sun made unusual and brusque movements, defying all the laws of the cosmos, and, according to the typical expression of the peasants, “the sun danced.”
After much contemplation, in 1930, the Catholic Church declared the events at Fatima “worthy of belief,” and chapels, sanctuaries, shrines and other memorials to the events popped up.
WHY HAS FATIMA BECOME SUCH AN ATTRACTION?
When the church declared the Fatima apparitions worthy of acceptance, it is said pilgrims who travel there could obtain a special blessing as well as pray for healing and spiritual guidance. Today it is one of the most popular shrines in the world. The largest numbers come dutifully on May 13 — the anniversary of the first apparitions.
What is not well known is that Marian apparitions, as they have become popularly known, are not just historical events of monumental proportions, but a growing phenomenon that has swept the world during the course of the decades since the three young shepherds bore witness to this series of ongoing events. Their experience pitted them and those who held fast in their beliefs against a rigid communist dictatorship who had officially declared themselves an atheistic state.
Truly, there can be little doubt in anyone’s mind upon reading through the maze of available literature that something utterly profound happened at Fatima, Portugal, on October 13th, 1917, when thousands gathered for a miracle which had been promised by three local children. Peering up into the dark, cloud-filled sky, the throng witnessed a spectacle that has deservedly gone down in history as one of the greatest spiritual events of modern times.
Even the most religiously conservative of the flock can see the obvious connection between the apparitions at Fatima, combined with the anomalous spinning “sun,” as having a likely relation to the appearance of UFOs, “spacemen” and “spacewomen” and other paranormal occurrences.
It is now an established fact that sightings and interactions with the Lady have come from all over the world and from individuals of all faiths and backgrounds. The Holy Mother has been seen in virtually every country in the world, regardless of that nation’s religious or political beliefs. Apparently, she appears before us not to make converts, but to awaken us to the fact that time may be running out.
JACQUES VALLEE’S POSITION
For many years, French-born Jacques Vallee has been at the forefront of UFO and paranormal research. He is highly credentialed, trained in science, and author of a good number of books and papers on unexplained phenomena. While the majority of UFO researchers have been out chasing “UFOs from Mars,” Dr. Vallee sees the phenomena as being more “homegrown,” more “earthbound,” much more of a conditioning influence by an outside force yet to be determined.
Vallée has contributed to the investigation of the Miracle at Fatima and Marian apparitions. His work has been used to support the Fatima UFO Hypothesis. Vallée is one of the first people to speculate publicly about the possibility that the “solar dance” at Fatima was a UFO. The idea of UFOs was not unknown in 1917, but most of the people in attendance at the Fatima apparitions would not have attributed the claimed phenomena there to UFOs, let alone to extraterrestrials. Vallée has also speculated about the possibility that other religious apparitions may have been the result of UFO activity, including Our Lady of Lourdes and the revelations to Joseph Smith. Vallée and other researchers have advocated further study of unusual phenomena in the academic community. They feel that this should not be handled solely by theologians.
One concept entertained by numerous UFO researchers is that the many visions associated with the appearance of the Madonna and Jesus in the clouds could simply be a holographic projection, created by the CIA, elements of a supposed “New World Order,” or some other “power” (possibly even extraterrestrial) in an attempt to manipulate followers of certain religious and cultural belief systems. In conspiracy theorist circles, this is known as “Project Blue Beam,” and is part of a long established pattern of “false flags,” created for purposes of propaganda and disinformation. Hispanic researcher Scott Corrales, the author of “Alien Blood Lust,” has collected anecdotes of a series of what seem to be holographic projections, mostly over the island of Cuba, where some residents have come to believe that such aerial manifestations are part of a secret program to bring the people back to “God” and turn them against communism.
WAYS MARY PRESENTS HERSELF
A Methodist clergyman in Haines City, Florida, Reverend B. W. Palmer, has spent years collecting hundreds of contemporary visions of the Holy Mother. His research on the subject indicates that there are at least 24 methods the Virgin uses to manifest herself. There may be as many as fifty ways, but we list here the 24 most commonly manifested.
1. The skies appear to open up and Mary with a band of angels appears to descend.
2. In the presence of a viewer, Mary appears to descend in a shaft of light.
3. The Virgin appears or disappears through a solid object such as a door or a wall.
4. A viewer may hear footsteps outside his house. Then a knock on the door. When he opens it he sees the Holy Mother.
5. The Virgin can also appear as though she is in a picture on the wall.
6. A witness may awake because he feels a spiritual presence in the room, or may feel someone’s touch. When he opens his eyes he sees the Holy Figure bending over him.
7. An angel or the spirit of a deceased person may appear to the witness first, then lead him to the materialization of the Holy Mother.
8. The witness may see the face of the Virgin or Jesus Christ appear above the person who is desperately in need of help.
9. The witness may hear a voice which tells him or her to go to a certain place and do a certain thing. When he complies, he sees the Virgin Mary.
10. The figure of the Virgin Mary appears in the sky, but greatly magnified.
11. The viewer may be awakened by the light of a very bright moon. At that moment he sees the Holy Mother.
12. Clouds play a part in visions. The Virgin often appears out of a cloud moving toward a person, and she also uses the cloud to make her departure.
13. A cloud or heavy mist may materialize in the viewer’s room. And out of the mist the Virgin will appear.
14. During the Fatima miracle, the Holy Mother appeared to the three children in exactly the same way. All three gave the same description of what they saw. In many cases the Virgin appears to several persons at the same time, but each witness gave a different description of what he or she saw. To one witness, the Holy Mother may appear as a ball of light; to another, a flash of lightning; to another, a disembodied voice.
15. The Virgin may appear in a room occupied by several people. But only one person will see her. The others may see the spirits of the dead.
16. The Virgin may also appear in the dreams of a witness. A manifestation like this is usually associated with healing or cures.
17. The Holy Mother may vanish suddenly, or fade away slowly, slipping into a cloud, through the ceiling, doors or walls. She may walk away, fading from view as she gets further and further away from the witness.
18. In most visions of the Holy Mother, only the witness singled out for communications may see her even though there are a lot of people present. This was so in the Fatima miracle in which thousands of people saw the three children talking to an entity they could not see.
19. In many of the visions collected by Rev. Palmer, the Virgin appears in a strange light, one that illuminates the witness as well. In some of these cases, the light appeared first, then the Holy Figure.
20. In some visions, the witnesses said they saw no figures at all, but were aware of the Holy Presences through the supernatural light and the voices that came to them.
21. Those who have experienced out-of-body incidents have reported seeing the Holy Mother, but that the vision disappeared once the out-of-body experience ended.
22. In other out-of-body experiences, people have claimed to travel through space to visit friends and relatives, and on such excursions have usually seen a Holy Figure, that is, the Holy Mother, a saint, an angel, or other Holy Entities.
23. In still other out-of-body travels, people have claimed to have seen the lower spirit worlds where good spirits attempt to help the lower spirits. In some instances during these lower-plane visits, the travelers have seen Jesus Christ or the Virgin Mary.
24. During near-death experiences, people said they saw Jesus or Mary for a brief moment when their bodies were physically dead.
THE REVEREND BARRY DOWNING, A PIONEER OF THE UFOS/BIBLE CONNECTION
Science and religion could end up complementing each other. New – more “radical” – trends in physics point to the existence of parallel universes and other dimensions which could assist in explaining many Biblical mysteries and miracles, at least according to one Protestant minister who has spent more than a half century pondering the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials and their possible connection to the seemingly bizarre and unexplainable tales of the Old and New Testaments.
The Reverend Barry Downing was among the first to see that it wasn’t a given that the “Good Book” was in conflict with the lore of the flying saucer and the possibility that our universe might be constructed of a bit more than just physical matter. He posited that heaven could be a real place – if not in our timeline then perhaps in a parallel existence just beyond our reach. Could that other dimension possibly be accessible through the guidance of Godly ultra-terrestrial beings and their vehicles? What we think of as spaceships could, in some cases, be divine.
Downing has been preaching the gospel of “UFO angels” for more than 50 years now, since the publication of his 1968 book, “The Bible and Flying Saucers.” Downing has recently released a new book called “Biblical UFO Revelations” that incorporates hard won wisdom and perspectives gleaned in the intervening years as he steadfastly continues to make his case for his particular take on Christianity and the aliens.
Downing is not just an ordained minister and a religious expert, he is also well-versed in physics, having earned his bachelor’s degree in the field. So he is uniquely qualified to analyze Biblical miracles like the parting of the Red Sea from the Exodus both scientifically and as a man of faith. In “UFOs, Armageddon and Biblical Revelations,” one can read more about Downing’s analysis of the “environmental impact” that the pillar of cloud and fire exerted for the sake of the fleeing Israelites.
How does one approach the extreme levels of fear experienced by witnesses to angels in the Bible? Is the fear a UFO witness experiences an example of that same kind of fear? Are we actually wise to approach the two phenomena in abject terror and trembling? At what point does a heavenly love enter the picture and cast out all fear? Downing provides answers to these questions and others equally as difficult.
GARY STEARMAN AND THE CHARIOTS OF WONDER
Gary Stearman is a well-known author and former co-host, with his partner, the late Dr. J.R. Church, of a television program called “Prophecy in the News.” Stearman now hosts his own program, “Prophecy Watchers,” broadcast on satellite, cable and the Internet. .
In an interview with Stearman conducted specifically for this book, the theological and prophetic aspects of the modern UFO phenomenon and its interaction with the modern state of Israel are given a thorough examination.
“The fact about UFOs,” Stearman began, “is that they seem to correspond in many ways to what human beings have associated for centuries with spiritual events. There seems to be a spiritual quality within the UFO world and, specifically, it can be seen as part of perhaps a spiritual struggle.
“And with that in mind,” he continued, “it’s very useful to compare UFOs, the history of UFOs in the modern era, with the occurrences of UFOs in various parts of the world. First of all, the Bible speaks of fiery chariots. The chariot in Hebrew is called the merkavah. It has been suggested, in fact, several modern Israelis have suggested, that UFOs in the Hebrew be called merkavah mophtim. And mophtim means ‘wonder.’ So what you have in the Hebrew would be ‘chariots of wonder,’ or vehicles of wonder.
“And the vehicles of wonder have been seen in the Middle East literally for centuries. But in the modern era, particularly late 1947 through 1948 in Israel, they were seen not only in the United States and Europe, but also throughout the Middle East. They were reported as disc-shaped, sometimes cigar-shaped. Sometimes they were suspected of being Russian secret weapons. At other times, invasions from another planet. But they were nevertheless seen at the time.”
THE TIMING OF THE UFO FLAPS
Stearman explained the pattern of how UFO sightings flaps were timed around crucial events in Israel. “UFOs made their first dramatic appearance, really dramatic appearance, in 1947 and 1948. That would be the Jewish year 5708, or 47-48 in the Christian calendar. Of course, that was the year of the rebirth of Israel. And these were years when great battles were being fought by human beings in Israel, but the idea is that perhaps someone else was taking notice of this on a higher plane.
“Just about ten years later, in early October of 1956, during the great Sinai Campaign of Israel against Egypt, there were great numbers of sightings of UFOs. It was quite commonly reported in the newspapers of the Middle East, particularly the Israeli newspapers.
“And then again, in the Jewish year 5727, which of course was timed with late spring of 1967, the Six Day War erupted. When the Six Day War came to pass, there was a great UFO flap throughout the world. Then, during September and October of 1973, when the Yom Kippur War against Israel took place, sightings were again very common.
“So when you lay this out,” Stearman said, “you have the years 1948, the date of Israel’s statehood, and 1956, the Sinai Campaign, as well as 1961, when another massive anti-Israeli movement was begun, of Arabs against the Israelis, 1967, the Six Day War, and 1973, the Yom Kippur War. All of those were the dates of historic UFO flaps. So that’s sort of the beginning thesis that leads us to other ideas.”
ANOTHER RELEVANT SIGHTINGS WAVE
Stearman made another connection between a major UFO sightings wave and the modern state of Israel, with the surprising year being 1897.
“The beginning of the state of Israel,” Stearman explained, “was in the year 1897. That was the great year of the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. And in 1897, the world experienced, and I’m talking about the entire world – and it’s heavily reported in all the UFO literature – the world experienced a flap of UFO sightings. But they were not called UFOs. They were called airships.
“I believe that the 1897 flap was timed with the rebirth of Israel. From 1897 to 1947 of course is precisely 50 years, and the two great UFO flaps happened in those years.”
Stearman related a familiar anecdote from the 1897 flap. “There was the famous case of Alexander Hamilton of Leroy, Kansas. April 21, 1897. An unidentified airship was sailing low over his farm and it lowered a rope and trapped one of his cattle. A two-year-old heifer, bawling and jumping, was lassoed and hauled up into this airship. And it flew away. Well, there is an affidavit published in a number of the UFO publications from Alexander Hamilton. It was signed by the local sheriff, the town banker, and the registrar of deeds, attesting that this really happened. And there are, just as you know, dozens if not hundreds of reports from 1897. 1 link those to the first Zionist Congress, which essentially was the meeting that established the Zionist Movement and the state of Israel.”
BUT WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
After Stearman had explained the timing of major UFO sightings waves with events in Israel, the question then became, “What does it all mean? What are the UFO occupants trying to say about their relationship to Israel?”
“Well,” Stearman replied, “this takes us back to the fact that these are merkavaim, plural, and that’s what the Bible calls them. The Bible speaks of the fiery chariots being like heavenly ambassadors, or sometimes they’re called heavenly messengers, or angels. You can call them beings from another dimension. They’re commonly called aliens. But the prophets of ancient Israel said that these were the watchmen watching over Israel. And they were acting on behalf of the people of Israel, according to the will of God. Now, that’s what the Bible specifically says.”
So did Stearman feel that the UFOs are making a show of force, letting the world know that they intend to protect Israel?
“Yeah, I do,” he answered. “Or perhaps there is a battle, an ultra-dimensional battle, shall we say, a battle behind the scenes, taking place between those who favor one side or the other. You can state it any way you want to, but there’s an earthly battle going on and there appears to be an ultra-dimensional battle going on, too.”
Did Stearman mean something like the War In Heaven spoken of in the Bible’s Book of Revelation? “The War In Heaven, yeah,” he said. “And it seems that every time Israel is threatened, the War In Heaven also seems to accelerate so that it becomes visible in this dimension as UFO and strange creature reports.”
“And so every time that Israel is threatened,” Stearman said, “the battle becomes pitched and becomes more visible to human eyes. And I believe that, Biblically speaking, you can make a strong defense for this because in the Old Testament, one of the titles of the Lord is ‘Lord of Hosts,’ or ‘Jehovah of Hosts,’ as he is called. And that title essentially is a military title. It’s like being the General of the Heavenly Army.
“Of course, one of the major Bible themes is that the Lord fights on behalf of his people. In fact, one of the meanings of the name Israel is ‘for whom God fights.’ And so it can be very well said that the hosts of heaven are fighting on behalf of Israel and that each time Israel is in peril, what we call UFOs, but what really are probably better termed merkeva mophlim, these vehicles of wonder, these fiery chariots, roll into action on behalf of Israel.”
WHAT IS TRUTH?
“Indeed, what is the fundamental truth about all things Biblical?” Beckley asks in his introduction. “And how do we interpret what the Good Book actually says about the Second Coming and the End Times as forecast in the Book of Revelation? I hope our fellow journeymen can offer up a bit of hope for humanity. Some think God is a vengeful God and we get what we deserve. Others believe in the mercy of the Savior. It’s a toss-up as far as I am concerned, but that’s why I offer you text that lies just beyond my Introduction.
“The scriptures,” Beckley adds, “and all wise men, have made it known that we have the free will to accept – or NOT to accept – all that is and may be. ‘UFOs, Armageddon and Biblical Revelations: Signs, Symbols and “Wonders” – The Whole Truth’ gives us the tools to conduct our search for the true nature of things mysterious and unknown. But, in the end, our heart holds the key. Also, thanks to our comrades: Reverend Virginia Brasington, Reverend Barry Downing, Gary Stearman, Nick Redfern, Dr. Frank E. Stranges, Tim Swartz, Barry Chamish, Arthur Crockett, Professor G. Cope Schellhorn, William Kern, and the blond Goddess of the Woods, Diane Tessman.
“Good luck in your search for the truth, be you a true believer, a heretic, or somewhere on the path in-between.”
BIBLICAL UFO REVELATIONS by Dr. Barry Downing
Our YouTube channel – “Mr. UFO’s Secret Files,” where over 400 interviews await you.
By Sean Casteel
Are we, as mankind, on our own against all that threatens our survival? Will we be left to fend for ourselves against unthinkable odds?
Author, publisher and editor Timothy Green Beckley and his stable of writers say that we shall not perish in our own self-destruction but will instead get help from entities that are sometimes called the “Space Brothers,” a word equivalent to “angels” filtered through a high-tech, modern-day lens.
Over the many decades that Beckley has been publishing UFO and occult books, he has provided a thorough survey of the aliens that runs the moral gamut, from heavenly angels to snarling demons to extraterrestrial scientists bent on genetically blending themselves with human DNA. There are innumerable ways to view the aliens as benevolent or malevolent, and Beckley has long covered the wide range of moral approaches.
Two new releases from Beckley’s publishing house, Global Communications/Inner Light, are definitely on the positives end of the moral spectrum. One is called “Carol Ann’s Psychic and UFO Revelations for the Twenty-First Century,” and the other is entitled “Cosmic Messages from the Space Brothers and Ashtar Command.” Both books rely on the principle that the Space Brothers are living entities with whom people can communicate fairly directly through a method called “channeling,” in which the aliens “speak through” a chosen human subject, who is sometimes in a trance and at other times in a more normally conscious state of being.
If one will allow that this alien contact is real, what are the Space Brothers actually saying as they articulate themselves through human contactees? One may be surprised to learn that there is a certain amount of doom-saying inherent in the message, which is tempered by an even bigger preponderance of hope. The Space Brothers promise that a happier, healthier world will eventually come, but only after a period of “cleansing,” much like the tribulation years prophesized in the Bible.
WHAT FORMS MAY OUR POSSIBLE DOOM TAKE?
In a chapter from “Psychic and UFO Revelations,” writer Tim R. Swartz takes up the unhappy subject of encroaching doom.
“For those who believe in the Space Brothers,” Swartz writes, “we have been warned time and time again that there are many pitfalls and perilous events that could befall us given the least opportunity. That things are ‘shaky,’ because of our attitude toward impending matters both local and international. As the space people see it, all things are interconnected. What you sow is what you reap. The predictions made by the ‘Visitors’ are varied and involve many scenarios as to how civilization as we know it could come to an end.”
Swartz says that how and when the end will come is presently a matter of speculation and debate.
“Will the world end with a bang or with a whimper?” he asks. “By ice or by fire? By our hand or the hand of fate?”
Swartz then provides his own list, based on messages from the Space Brothers as obtained through various “channels,” of possible end-times events. For example, we could suffer a collision with a comet or asteroid. A polar shift could cause the Earth to flip over like an out-of-balance gyroscope. Could humanity be wiped out by a deadly disease? Could climate change be a harbinger of mass destruction? There is, of course, the threat of nuclear warfare, as well as the possibility of an accidental nuclear reactor explosion that could spread deadly radiation throughout the world. There is also something Swartz calls “Death By Divinities,” by which he means the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies of the Antichrist and the inevitable Battle of Armageddon.
“Is the end in sight?” Swartz asks. “Are there signs, portents and hints of catastrophes that we continue to miss out of ignorance? If the end is close, would we choose to try to avert it, or continue to argue about politics, religion and money until it is too late? Or maybe we don’t have to worry about any of this, as some of the Star Commanders, twisting and turning about in our atmosphere, have said they will rescue us and remove the ‘chosen ones’ in a world evacuation. They suggest having a bag packed and ready to go. Decision making time is upon us.”
THE HOPI PROPHECIES
Beckley writes in “Psychic and UFO Revelations” that it is not just one particular sect, cult or religious denomination that is responsible for these forecasts of doom.
“Just about every culture on Earth,” he writes, “seems to realize that we are treading on dangerous ground and that the future looks quite bleak. For example, the great Native American tribe, the Hopi, feel strongly about this subject.”
A few years after the atom bomb was dropped on Japan in 1945, Hopi prophets attempted to get inside the United Nations in New York so they could present their findings regarding the End Times to the General Assembly. The Hopis based their warning on a sacred stone tablet that had been in their possession for many generations. They asked that the White Man’s ways be mended before it is too late.
According to Hopi Chief Dan Katchongva, “Many people, living at this time, will live to see the White Brother return to the Earth, and when they do they will live to consider what they could have heard if they had permitted the original inhabitants of these, the Americas, to give a message to that great body of people.” Chief Katchongva was not allowed to deliver his End Times message to the U.N. delegates, and for this he voiced his sad resignation. The following Hopi prophecies are given as signs we should be aware of:
*** A series of earthquakes will be felt throughout this land, and will come as warnings to the people to repent. If they do not heed these warnings and repent before it is too late, a bad earthquake will strike, devastating many cities and resulting in the death of large masses of people.
*** Floods will be seen in places where they have never been seen before.
*** There will be a great climate change worldwide; hot/cold, dry/wet. In each case, it will be the worst in recorded history.
*** There will be famine, pestilence, disease and plague throughout the land.
*** The Hopi were warned not to depend upon great inventions that would be brought to them by the white race. They were told that a lighting system would be established throughout the land and all one had to do was touch the wall to light the room. However, one day, the Hopis were told, this system would be cut off at once and the people would be left in panic. The Hopis were also warned against running water that would come into their homes. This water will be polluted and anyone depending on it will die or get terribly sick.
*** There will be terrible fighting all over the land. City against city, village against village, and family against family. The Hopis were warned to stay on their reservation.
*** The moon will turn to blood, and the sun will hide its face with shame.
*** The seasons will change and ice will flow from the north countries.
As a counterweight to all that gloom, the Hopis also believe that a messiah, a true White Brother wearing a red cap and cloak, will return to Earth and attempt to rescue an errant mankind from its wicked ways. UFO sightings are a common occurrence for these Native Americans, and their belief in their version of the Space Brothers is strong.
TUELLA AND THE ASHTAR COMMAND
We come now to the most encouraging of prophets, Tuella and the Ashtar Command. According to Beckley, the main representative on Earth of the Ashtar Command, a commonly referenced aggregate group of guardian Space Brothers, was an elderly woman named Thelma Turrell, who later changed her name to Tuella. As unlikely as it may seem, a frail old woman was the aliens’ choice to receive and record their cosmic messages. The channeled messages are the exact opposite of much of the darker UFO and alien abduction literature. The channeled material deals with bliss and euphoria and how to build a better world.
“They take a higher spiritual tone,” Beckley says, “than a lot of the other contacts and experiences. People always ridicule this and say it’s a lot of New Age fluff. And they’re right. A lot of the things the channelers say cannot really be verified. But it’s a very positive message that they bring, although of course it’s hard for many people to follow or believe in this chaotic world that we live in.”
Nevertheless, Beckley dares to present Tuella and the Ashtar Command on their own terms, with transcripts of Tuella’s channeling sessions with Ashtar and the other Space Brothers who serve with him. The cover of the new book, “Cosmic Messages from the Space Brothers and Ashtar Command,” credits its dual authorship to both Tuella and the Ashtar Command, acknowledging both the human and alien elements of the process used to create the book. Shortly before Tuella passed away, Beckley bought the rights to her writing and has published it in various forms ever since.
Tuella said that the messages from the Ashtar Command were received “through mental telepathic impressions while fully conscious,” not in a trance state, as is sometimes used by other channelers. The messages came to her from “interdimensional and interplanetary spacecraft.” The vocal communications were tape-recorded as they were delivered and later transcribed, as presented in the book.
For her part, Tuella states upfront that “The content of this volume stands on its own merits. I do not justify it or in any way come to its defense. It will defend itself. I do not debate nor argue with anyone, or apologize for any messenger who has come forward to speak. To those who do not seek, no argument is possible. To those who do, no argument is necessary.”
The ultimate ruler of the alliance of Space Brothers is an entity who calls himself Kuthumi. In his Foreword to “Cosmic Messages” he tells readers that “The plan for this book has existed on spiritual levels for considerable time. That moment has come when we of the Hierarchy now focus our energies for its manifestation upon the physical plane. The words go forth under my sponsorship. We release them in a simplicity that all might understand.”
Among Kuthumi’s helpers, an umbrella organization called the Cosmic Symposium, are those who represent the Angel Kingdom, the Great Central Sun Government, the Heavenly Host, the Great Karmic Board, the Chohans of Earth Solar System, Universal Masters, and the great Alliance of the Intergalactic Confederation. A divine thread intertwines through all of them, in a united warning of the times and a spiritual call to preparedness.
JUST WHO ARE THESE OTHERWORLDLY MESSENGERS?
One of the entities who speaks through Tuella calls itself “The Elohim,” which is a Hebrew word for God Almighty as a collective-type entity.
“We, the Elohim of God, send our message to the Planet Earth in this appeal to the flesh of this generation to accept the blessings offered to man by the Elohim of Heaven. Unless humanity is willing to accept the outstretched hand of Love, there will come to this planet spasms of tremendous upheaval and loss of life. The forces of destruction that are within the Earth cannot be contained unless your world community will yield itself to a spiritual awakening. Be still and listen to the beat of your hearts and know that within collective creation all hearts beat in tempo with your own. Know that all of life finds its source in the pulse of the Universe.”
This is a message hammered home time and time again in Tuella’s channeled testimony. There is a loving source, the giver of all life, who asks that we repent, change our ways, and accept the love being offered. We have a free will that allows us to receive or reject the gift of world salvation, and our planet’s survival depends on our ability to see the worth and necessity of changing our ways. We can collectively CHOOSE for our planet to live on and become a relative paradise, but the path to that outcome is not an easy one, as the heavenly entities freely admit. It is fraught with danger and trouble like no other time in the history of mankind.
THE LAWS OF NONINTERVENTION
But the heavenly forces can only exert a limited amount of control over our planet and humankind. They are restrained by a policy of nonintervention that cannot be disobeyed, by laws that govern their interaction with us and require us to uplift ourselves by genuine repentance and the willingness to serve the higher purposes.
The Archangel Michael speaks through Tuella of “The Invisible Fortress of Love,” and describes a scenario where he CAN intervene.
When the dark clouds of thought forms of war or international emergencies gather in the heavens surrounding the Earth, Michael says, he intervenes in a concerted action to disperse and scatter these clouds, weakening or dissolving their propulsion’s and destructive energies. But there still remains the threat of nuclear war and the time has come when men of military stature and the statesmen of the world must look beyond the security of their own borders and carefully weigh the threat to humanity everywhere of their decisions.
Michael comforts us by saying, “Let fear not be found among you. Fear hath no place in the heart filled with Light and Love. As your planet enters its next dimension, many will fall or be taken, or meet with mishap, right up to your very doors. Stand ye in Faith and Love, calling upon the Angels of God to stand with you, until this too shall pass.”
Tuella also channels Mother Mary, Jesus the Christ, Saint Germain, Lord Maitreya, Hilarion, Lord Arcturus and James, the Brother of Jesus, to name a few. There is a cohesive energy that binds the various entities together as they warn mankind to repent and accept the love we are being offered, a unified message from a large assortment of faiths and philosophies who seem to simply want our trust.
BEARING ARTISTIC WITNESS
We need to say a word or two about the artist Carol Ann Rodriguez, who has partnered with Timothy Green Beckley since the 1970s, when they met at Beckley’s New York School of Occult Arts and Sciences. Carol has long been a careful student of channeled entities, and she continues to seek out the messages from the great beyond in the present day.
Carol’s fertile artistic imagination has conjured many a beautiful image of the Space Brothers, their spacecraft and the spiritual powers driving the collective transformation of the Chosen Ones in these strange, unsteady times. Beckley calls Carol the “female Peter Max,” and her work does have a kind of spacey quality that recalls those long ago psychedelic times beautifully. Carol’s drawings and paintings are used throughout “Psychic and UFO Revelations” and “Cosmic Messages,” and her unique touch is part of what makes the books worth Beckley’s asking price.
IS THERE HOPE FOR HUMANKIND?
UFO channel Diane Tessman, who first engaged with her alien friend Tibus while growing up in Iowa, says we shouldn’t give up hope, that all is not lost by any means. The honey blond haired abductee has been providing spiritually-oriented discourses from her human-looking “cosmic contact” for several decades, having done so shortly after meeting Tim Beckley – circa 1980 – following on the heels of a series of dramatic UFO synchronicities in Florida, where she served as a representative for both MUFON and APRO. Diane was subsequently hypnotized by the well-known UFO researcher Dr. Leo Sprinkle, a psychology professor from the University of Wyoming, in order to validate her experiences.
Unlike most UFO experiencers, Ms. Tessman holds to the belief that her ET is not a “real” extraterrestrial in the normal sense of the word, and comes a-calling not from deep space but from another time in space, being that he is essentially a time traveler.
In her recently published “Future humans And UFOs” (Flying Disc Press), Diane maintains that future man is coming back to visit us and to share a bit of wisdom and knowledge that hopefully will be to our advantage and allow us to expand the consciousness of our species and ward off any possible danger.
DIANE TESSMAN’S PHILOSOPHY OF A COSMIC FIRE DRILL
In “Psychic and UFO Revelations for the Twenty First Century,” Diane lays down her theory in a most expressive way, explaining her philosophy that prophecy concerning the future well-being of the human race is like a “fire drill” for what could transpire, but which can still be avoided if we pass the drill wholeheartedly.
“The super-storms which we predicted are now regularly happening all over the planet,” writes Diane, “sometimes with torrential rains, flooding, and F4/F5 tornadoes. Other times with debilitating snowstorms. Also, there are massive wildfires, droughts, mudslides and sink holes as never before. Volcanoes and earthquakes are revving up.
“What have I learned about making predictions over these 38 years?” she continues. “I have learned that when fire breaks out in a crowded theater, someone has to hit the alarm bell. Everyone perceives the fire, everyone would hit the bell, but it seems to be the purpose of those of us who write books and who receive messages from beyond to hit the alarm as long and hard as we can. This is part of our spiritual connection and responsibility; we are the designated pullers of the alarm. It is my hope that by ringing the alarm bell, human consciousness will come together and wake up! If we can wake up, we stand on the threshold of an amazing step forward in evolution. I believe the galactic community awaits our step forward.”
Yes, dark days could be on the horizon, but sunny days could follow.
“These dark days are part of humanity’s great freedom struggle,” Diane warns, “to become a united people, overcoming three huge, enslaving aspects of all of our lives. There are three aspects to our struggle: 1. We will secure ourselves the use of free, endless energy 2. We will achieve Disclosure of the fact we are not alone in the universe 3. We will begin interaction with UFO occupants as one intelligent galactic (and/or dimensional) species to another
“The first shackle to cast off is our dependence on oil and similar energy sources. We know of our ridiculous enslavement to big oil; however, natural gas now uses the fracking method which has already caused numerous earthquake clusters, because it literally guts the Earth’s water table and rock structure. This is a damaging, dangerous method of extracting natural gas. Generating electricity gobbles up oil and the other finite resources, wounding Mother Earth in the process and all the while placing trillions upon trillions of dollars into the pockets of multi-national conglomerates which have such far-reaching tentacles we cannot even fathom them. Their enslavement of all of us is so insidious that most of the enslaved do not even know we are enslaved.
“Our Sun pumps out a half a million tons of electrons every second. It has been doing this for billions of years. There is an unimaginable amount of raw power in its purest form out there, waiting for us to learn how to tap into it. Why should we need to generate electricity at all, when the electron is so abundantly and freely available? What we do need is to devise a way to simply collect it.
“The second aspect of the next great freedom fight is that ‘We, the People of Earth,’ will succeed in our demands that the existence in our skies of UFOs and their occupants be made known to us in full. We will succeed in obtaining the truth about the history of our planet as well. No, we will not run in panic into the streets in utter chaos, as our government tells us will happen. Our struggle will be intelligent and peaceful; we can handle the truth.”
Very well spoken. Hopefully the news ahead – especially from the Space Brothers – will be of a positive nature and there will be a long period of peace and harmony for our great world as it spins in space, not alone, but lovingly nurtured by benevolent forces instead.
Meanwhile, Kuthumi, the highest authority quoted in “Cosmic Messages,” says the channeled words of Tuella and the others are “not for eloquence, entertainment or intellectual fare . . . neither profound nor prophetic, but rather timely and emphatic. They are lowered into the physical octave specifically for preparing certain souls who are now ready to receive them.”
And as Tuella herself declares, “Read not to contradict, nor to believe and take for granted, but to weigh and consider.”

Ever really wonder why we have not been back to the moon?
Why we haven’t set up a base or even a colony by now?
Maybe my warning had been taken to heart — for after all it had been a stern one.
“Alien beings, using the moon as a flying saucer base, are warning us to watch our step in space. If we try to colonize the moon, these outer space intelligence, will stop us!”
The New York Daily News and the Sunday Gazette Mail of Charleston, West Virginia carried my message throughout the country, since the Daily News had a circulation of about 3 million at the time, the WV paper a lot less of course.
It was June of 1969, and I was in Charleston to speak at a large “flying saucer show,” organized by J. Ralph Jarrett acting as that years sponsor of the Congress of Scientific UFOlogists a group of which I was on the national board of director, along with stalwarts James Moseley, Cleveland’s Rick Hilberg and Al Manning, a Korean War vet who had had an up close, personal encounter with a foo fighter.
I pointed out at a press conference, held before the event in the Daniel Boone Hotel, that I had been instructed by my “planetary guides” to tell the media that if we attempted to return to the moon there would be serious repercussions on earth — in the form of earthquakes, power failures and other headline making disasters. I should point out that the space people didn’t necessary say that they were going to cause these events (except for Ted Owens who said the SI’s could be very vindictive). Instead it was a sort of what you sow you reap sort of thing.
After I explained that my source for these warnings was a group of UFO contactees, who had been in regular touch with some pretty powerful extraterrestrial friends, they pretty much accurately quoted me as having said: “Whatever they are, these beings are more highly advanced. They are primarily concerned that we might use the moon for military purposes. They’re warning us not to do that.”
Fat chance I would have to say, even at this late date!?
To bolster my point, I revealed that many of our space missions had been closely monitored by “strange lights,” which followed our astronauts out in space in order to show us that they “meant business.” I also told how they might go so far as to “quarantine the earth until we have cleaned up our act.” I confess I was going for the sensationalist factor, hoping the event would get more than a blurb in the back of the paper. My approach resulted in wide coverage. I had said a mouthful and I would have to live with it.
MICHAEL X’S THE COSMIC GURU
Though I have never considered myself a staunch supporter of the New Age wing of the UFO community, I had established a co existing friendship with numerous channelers and contactees as I do believe they have the right to be heard. And from time to time what they have to say is right on the money!
Above all else, there was one particular individual from the “cosmic no fly zone” whom I thought was one cut above the rest when it came to expressing the theme of the Space Brothers arrival here on earth, and what they would like to see accomplished by our society before we joined with our galactic breathern. He was very articulate, and my gut feeling was that his messages were more than gossamer “New Age cotton candy,”
He influenced me pretty much to the point where I felt I could be a conduit for some of the space people’s messages, without getting involved on a personal level as if I were claiming to receive such predictions on my own. I felt I had to separate my “serious” UFO research efforts from the more “extreme” elements that were hiding in the shadows, but were looking to guide the rest of us toward the light.
One of the most influential individuals in the UFO contact movement of the Nineteen Fifties and Sixties was a gentleman named Michael Barton whose moniker was an easy, breezy, Michael X, a nom de plum. He chose it so that he could hang out under cover and not be so easily identified. He was not interested in a cult following, but had some very important information to give out which he said had been given to him by his Space Brother friends from “Venus.”
Every year, Michael X. would mount the speaker’s platform at the Giant Rock UFO Convention, held just outside the town of Landers, California, in the Mojave Desert. He would address the throng of up to ten thousand who would sit in the hot sun all day to hear the latest message transmitted to the earthly representatives of the Ashtar Command and the followers of other “star fleets” captains.
Specifically, Michael said his contacts were from the planet Venus. None of the Giant Rock presenters received a speakers fee from promoter George Van Tassel, so most of them hawked their self published books and stapled tracks. The material that Michael X disseminated, however, was a cut above the rest. Such titles as “Venusian Health Science,” “Venusian Secret Science,” “Release Your Cosmic Power,” “Amazing Visions of the End Times, and “Rainbow City and the Inner Earth People,” were highly sought after, as the teachings they contained were of a higher caliber than most of the material that was being spread around in the name of the space aliens. The transmissions Michael X received were direct and “non filtered.” They were not as poetic or flowery as some of what I call “New Age fluff” that was being passed about to the hard core believers via mimeographed leaflets. The material he was coming forth with was a combination of ancient wisdom bestowed upon him and channeled information which he was receiving while in an altered state.
Truth is, his books were presented as inspirational courses, suitable for study groups (which there were a lot of in the Fifties and into the mid Seventies. This was especially true on the west coast, where some were even organized by celebrities who would order books from me over the phone.
I have one here in front of me now. “Secrets of Higher Contacts,” which was one of his best…and dig the list of enlightening chapters, presented with pzazz.
Saucer Mystery Unveiled.
Brothers of the Higher Arc.
Contacting Your Secret X.
Will You Be A Contactee?
Your Most Important Role.
The Space Brothers Need You Now!
In fact, as far as it is known, Michael published the first book in the U.S. on the Nazi UFO connection. It was titled, “We Want You — Is Hitler Alive?” Later on he published, “The German Saucer Story,” Both were to bring him a great deal of trouble as we shall see.
Suddenly, Michael X disappeared from the scene. He did not want to talk about UFOs or the space people any longer. Something had frightened him dreadfully. According to the late Frank Stranges, a personal friend of both Michael X and myself, it had something to do with Barton’s belief that at least some UFOs were being manufactured right here on earth by members of an elite Fourth Reich who had manufactured disc shaped devices. The plans for these devices had come from a negative race of Nordic-like extraterrestrials who sympathized with Hitler and his Aryan supremacy views.
Michael X had claimed telepathic contact with his space “friends.” One day they told him to go to a particular spot in the desert to meet with them face to face. He did not feel this was an unusual suggestion as he had followed their commands to meet several time before without incident. This time the results were not to his liking. He had parked his vehicle and had gotten out to see if there was a ship approaching, when suddenly he saw something glittering in the sunlight. He looked off to his side, and there partially hidden behind a sand dune was a would be assassin, a man with a rifle whose metallic barrel was reflecting the sun’s rays giving their hiding spot away.
Author, researcher and guru, Michael X fled the scene as quickly as possible realizing that he had been “set upon” by entities he had no desire to deal with. His wisdom was no match for a firearm with a scope. From what we later heard, Michael canceled all of his forthcoming speaking dates and went into seclusion not knowing how to deal with this very unnerving situation which had never confronted him before.
Even as a teenager I was in the business of selling UFO books to finance my research. Long distance phone calls to witnesses were expensive in those days (maybe $10 for a 3 minute conversation from east coast to west). And one had to buy gas and rent hotel rooms while on the road. Michael X books always sold well because of their catchy titles, and they were inexpensive, at $10 or less. Michael would drop ship the orders to my customers. We didn’t have a lengthy conversation but we were doing business together.
When Michael folded his tent, he had cartons of unsold books. I took maybe 50 of each of the “best sellers,” figuring I would sell them over a period of time. And Gray Barker’s Saucerian Press took the rest. Somewhere along the line I had asked him if it was ok for me to reprint the various tomes if need be and he had no objections However, he in effect warned me to stay away from the book on Nazi UFOs which had been so troubling.
Gray Barker was doing so well with the Michael X material that he wanted to publish more titles by the author, but any offer he made to Michael was refused. He wanted no more dealings with the space brothers, be they legit friends from “Venus.” or potential Nazi “space Aryans” whose intentions were “not of the light.”
So I took up the helm. I wrote 3 books under the Michael X plume. They were, “Nikola Tesla — Man or Spaceman.” Before inking this little booklet there had only been two other volumes on Tesla, and nothing about his UFO — outer space — connection. Now there over 700 Tesla titles being sold on Amazon. Then there was “Gone Forever in the Blink of An Eye,” which dealt with the disappearance of one of Michael’s close friend, Dr Halsey whom might have been scooped up by aliens.
Most important of all, and this is the fist time I am confessing to this, I penned “Danger On The Moon,” a 32 page discourse which I feel is still very relevant to this day due to the timeliness of its contents, even though it came out in the late Sixties. In short, this booklet explained how even though we had landed on the moon, because of our warlike activities and general chaos, the space people would prevent us from returning to the lunar surface. They would take whatever measures necessary to see that we did not establish our own bases or colonies there, which had long been on our space agencies agenda.
