AN ALIEN FACE LOOKING BACK IN THE MIRROR

By Sean Casteel

UFO literature is replete with frightening accounts of kidnapping and other forms of assault by diminutive grey aliens and the taller intruders with distinctively reptilian features. But what is perhaps even more frightening are the less often reported “human-looking” aliens that can pass among us completely undetected and carry out their missions unhampered by “genuine” humans.

This is the aspect of alien life examined in “Mimics: The Others Among Us,” coauthored by Tim R. Swartz and myself, with contributions by numerous other stalwarts of UFO journalism and research. The cover explains that “They’ve Been Called Many Names Throughout Time – Gods, Angels, Demons, The Good Folk, Shapeshifters, Extraterrestrials. They Look Human . . . They Act Human . . . But They’re Not Human. They Are THE OTHERS.”

Mimics – The Others Among Us

That sounds like it was taken from the promotional poster to a sci-fi movie from the 1950s, unashamedly sensational and intended to shock. But what takes that sense of shock to a higher level is the fact that the various writers for “Mimics” each make an excellent case for the presence of human-looking aliens being grounded in real-world facts and the stuff of nonfiction. We could indeed be surrounded by nonhuman entities that look exactly like us, which begs the question, how could we ever know?

Perhaps we CAN know by piecing together bits of evidence collected over the years of the modern era of UFOs as well as the historical record of scripture and folklore compiled over the millennia. There are enough clues on the surface to help us draw conclusions about what lies underneath, which is the approach taken by “Mimics” and its many contributors.

DISAPPEARING DAVID

David Daniels claimed to be a shapeshifting reptilian.

In one chapter, written by Philip Kinsella, a clairvoyant medium and UFO investigator, we examine the story of a woman named Brenda Butler, who was an author of a book called “Sky Crash, A Cosmic Conspiracy,” about the famous 1980 Rendlesham Forest UFO incident involving U.S. Air Force personnel. Butler coauthored the book with Dot Street and UFOlogist/author Jenny Randles.

In November, 1984, Brenda received a distraught phone call from her writing partner Dot, who seemed to be in a state of complete shock.

“Dot proceeded to tell her,” Kinsella writes, “that a strange man had come to the door asking for Brenda. What scared Dot the most was the fact that one minute the man was standing in front of her, and the next he’d simply vanished, and had then appeared in her living room!”

Dot begged Brenda to get to her house as soon as possible, and Brenda reluctantly drove the thirty miles to her friend’s home. The strange man had particularly requested speaking with Brenda personally. When Brenda finally arrived, she was introduced to a tall, slim man with blonde, cropped hair, neatly parted in the middle. His eyes were the bluest she’d ever seen. His hands and fingers were exceedingly long. He looked to be in his late thirties and was extremely handsome.

“The man eventually spoke,” according to Kinsella. “He said his name was David Daniels and incredibly proclaimed that he was from the Pleiades and had arrived in a spacecraft.”

Brenda felt that was a little farfetched, to say the least, but, after researching the events at Rendlesham, it seemed that anything was possible. Brenda felt drawn to David, but Dot reacted to him in uncharacteristic hostility. David’s apparent ability to move from one place to another in the blink of an eye had obviously shaken Dot to the point where everyday logic went straight out the window.

In spite of the anger and hostility David brought forth from Dot, she nevertheless allowed him to stay in her home. Curiously, he never mentioned Rendlesham or the women’s book on the subject, though Brenda felt that that was what had drawn David to seek her and Dot out. Meanwhile, Dot explained that David only ate loads of greens, along with sweets to keep his energy levels up, and was reportedly appearing and disappearing in front of Dot all the time. She kept telling Brenda that David was dangerous and that she feared for her life.

Shortly after that, David decided to show Brenda his true self. He began to shake, and Brenda noticed the veins in his hands, neck and temple rose to about half an inch. This was followed by his appearance changing into what she could only describe as a Reptilian. His skin was like that of a snake. This shapeshifting episode lasted for about two minutes, and while he was in this state he began to speak in a strange language which Brenda could not identify. As he came around, his alien appearance disappeared. He was shaking, felt cold and remained silent for a moment while a shocked Brenda gathered her thoughts. She now no longer doubted that David was the alien he claimed to be.

While this dramatic transformation right in front of Brenda’s eyes certainly makes for a fascinating story, there is even more told in “Mimics” about David’s paranormal abilities and the humans who bore witness to them. But we’ll leave that to readers of the book and not give too much in the way of “spoilers.”

THE OUTER EXTREMES OF WHITENESS

Chris Holly wondered if she actually saw people who were not from this world.

Paranormal writer and experiencer Chris Holly contributes a chapter in which she writes about a strange family of albinos who used to live in her neighborhood when she was a teenager. Later, as an adult, her mother casually mentioned the family to her, who she hadn’t thought about in years.

“My mother went on about how striking they were,” Holly writes, “and how well dressed and groomed they were. My mother commented many times back when she saw them how beautiful the family was and always noticed what they were wearing, I never thought much about it then as I was in my teens but, as my mother went on and on about the albino family, I realized how very strange they really were.”

The family consisted of two adults and three children, all of them albinos. Holly had seen only a few other people with the albino condition but didn’t notice much difference between them and the family in her neighborhood. But, in talking to her mother, she began to realize how they were truly unusual people and not like other albinos.

The five members of the family were all over six feet tall, including the mother and the daughter. When they walked through the department store, they stood a head above most of the other shoppers. Each of them had thick, full, pure white hair. They had high cheekbones and model-like features. They all had the same color eyes, clear, big and very light blue. They kept to themselves and seemed to be quiet, polite people.

Holly would come to realize that they were a very “different” group of people. How likely was it that two beautiful albinos who looked so much alike in height and facial features would meet and marry?

“Although this is possible,” Holly writes, “I knew the odds had to be nearly impossible.”

Holly would recall reading an article about the eye problems that befell albinos and that their eyes tended to be pink or reddish. Her research did not turn up any albinos with blue eyes. The family in her neighborhood were either the result of some kind of incredible happening or they were simply NOT a family of human albinos.

Years after discussing the subject with her mother, Holly ran across a few articles on the Internet that talked about an alien species called the “Tall Whites.” When she looked at an artist’s rendering of the Tall Whites, she was completely taken aback as she saw the same tall people with the same beautiful faces – white hair, blue eyes, and high cheekbones – as the albino family that used to live in her Long Island, New York, neighborhood in the 1960s.

“I will never know,” Holly concludes, “if that strange, gentle family of tall, beautiful people was simply a very rare family of albinos or if they were a group of entirely different beings.”

Holly’s efforts to track down the family in the years since have proved fruitless. She was never able to find anything anywhere that would explain this odd group of people, adding that, “Maybe they just moved away to another state – or planet!”

HAUNTED BY THE LIVING

Ghosts of the living.

There exists a phenomenon that may seem new to you, called a “Living Ghost.” In a chapter by Paul Dale Roberts, a ghost hunter and UFO researcher, he discusses some little known sightings of various apparitions of people still living.

For example, in Chicago, Illinois, in 1974, a couple moved into a new neighborhood. They began to feel their recently purchased home was haunted because, always around 2 am, they repeatedly saw an apparition of a man walking over to the couch, after which an apparition of a woman appeared. The man confronted the woman and began slapping her. Then they both dissipated and vanished. The couple that had moved into this house saw this incident four times.

The couple was later invited to a neighborhood block party traditionally held every year on Labor Day. The host offered to let them thumb through his photo albums with photos of past events taken at the annual party.

As the woman perused one photo album, she was shocked and surprised to see the couple that had manifested in her home. She yelled out, “These are the ghosts in my house!” The host looked at the photo and said, “They are not ghosts. Both people are alive. They had domestic disputes and the police had been to the house a few times. They got a divorce. The woman lives five blocks down the road and the husband moved out of state. They are very much alive.”

“This is an example of ‘living ghosts,’” Roberts writes. “The negative energy released into this home replays itself over and over again. Very strong negative residual energy. You do not have to be dead to be a ghost.”

Roberts notes that in Japan they also believe in living ghosts, but their interpretation is somewhat different. Their version involves a disembodied spirit that leaves the body of a living person and subsequently haunts other people or places, sometimes across great distances. This is in contrast to the spirit of a person who is already deceased.

Roberts also writes about the better known “Doppelganger” phenomenon, in which an exact duplicate of a living person is seen. He was called in to assist a family suffering from an invasion of ghosts, some of whom mimicked the appearance of the recently widowed mother of the household as well as her granddaughter. At the end of the investigation, Roberts conducted a Roman Catholic cleansing of the home, which was a very emotional process for the mother.

THE TEENAGE DOPPELGANGER

A doppelganger could be a visitor from a parallel reality.

Researcher, writer and radio show host Paul Eno also writes about a “Doppelganger,” again a circumstance suffered by a family enduring minor poltergeist phenomena in the mid-1970s. Kitchen cabinets would rapidly open and close on their own, books and other objects in different rooms would move, and family members and guests heard occasional heavy footsteps in the attic and on the stairs. There were loud banging sounds on several occasions.

The phenomena seemed to follow the family’s fifteen-year-old daughter Lucy, not only at home but at the homes of friends. On investigating the case, Eno began to feel that the entities causing the poltergeist activity were not your normal haunting “demons” but seemed instead to be more like “provocateurs” or “cosmic mosquitos,” focusing on causing negative emotions in people, like anger, fear and frustration. They would “eat up” the energy of these unhappy feelings like “food.”

Lucy’s experiences had been triggered by her experimenting with a Ouija Board, with which she eventually summoned a spirit calling himself “Arten” and several of his associates.

“This was the classic pattern,” Eno writes, “a parasite-mimic finding an ‘in’ to make a girl, and perhaps her entire family, into a hot lunch. The Ouija Board and the ‘Arten’ persona were the ins. The resulting phenomena stirred up fear and other negative emotions that fed the parasites.”

In the midst of all this spiritual drama, various members of Lucy’s family saw a female with long, blonde hair – looking just like Lucy – looming over the girl’s bed while she was asleep. This took place not only at their family home in Glastonbury, Connecticut, but nearly 100 miles away, at their vacation home in Rhode Island.

Was the Lucy-like figure the family members saw really a mimic? Or perhaps another facet of Lucy from a parallel life looking in on her out of concern?

According to Eno, “We have seen overwhelming evidence that the latter is possible, because parallel worlds often have very different laws of physics, and thus heightened layers of multi-versal awareness and access.”

In the ensuing years, Eno has run into many more parasites who were mimics, and he shares a few more of those encounters in “Mimics: The Others Among Us.” Again, those stories are better off left to readers of the book.

OUR UNNAMABLE REFLECTION?

In his introduction to the book, publisher, editor and writer Tim R. Swartz writes: “We have tried throughout the centuries to put names to that which tries to remain hidden and unnamable. Nevertheless, despite their efforts to keep to the threshold of human awareness, it’s clear that the others have been with us since the beginning, taking on the roles of teachers, messengers, protectors, tricksters and adversaries.

“Modern UFO lore,” he continues, “from the very beginning of the 1950s contactee era, referenced how the Venusians, along with other visitors from nearby planets, looked so much like us that they managed to clandestinely secure jobs in major corporations and even high-ranking political positions.”

Is that idea really just a matter of “over-the-top” paranoia? Join contributors Timothy Green Beckley, Scott Corrales, Paul Eno, Chris Holly, Hercules Invictus, Philip Kinsella, Brent Raynes, Paul Dale Roberts, Gene Steinberg, Lon Strickler, Nigel Watson and John Weigle as they grapple with the idea of mimics from various intriguing approaches in their attempt to provide answers to the many mysteries posed by the presence of those who look just like us but are different – different in ways that are both profound and terrifying.

ARE BEINGS FROM BEYOND RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR EVOLUTION?

By Sean Casteel

In her new book, Diane states that she believes UFOs and UAPs are from a level of existence beyond ours.

Diane Tessman has been involved with the UFO mystery since she was four years old. At that young age she had two encounters, about six months apart, with a human-like being called “Tibus.” From that time onward, she has felt a “shared consciousness” with Tibus which is similar to telepathy. With Tibus’ input, Diane has offered psychic insight and spiritual counseling to thousands of people who also feel contact from “beings from beyond.” The experience can be frightening at times and joyous at other times. Diane’s guidance has proved helpful and healing. She maintains two publications, Change Times Quarterly, and Star Network Heartline for star seeds, experiencers, and seekers.

Diane would eventually become a field investigator with both the Mutual UFO Network, a worldwide civilian organization dedicated to finding the truth about UFOs and aliens, and the legendary Aerial Phenomenon Research Organization (APRO) which developed information and research on UFOs and UAPs which continue to be highly respected.

Today, Diane is Director of the Star Network Cat Sanctuary and Wildlife Refuge as well as offering readings and counseling to people hoping for emotional healing and providing personal insight for those seeking to solve the mysteries around them. Diane has never stopped investigating and researching in a scientific manner but, amazingly, her spirit guide Tibus has continued to have input into her scientific efforts as well. Science and Spirit are the two sides of the whole “coin” of reality.

“Beings From Beyond: They Are Here” by Diane Tessman

In her new book, Beings From Beyond: They Are Here, Diane shares what she has discovered regarding the UFO/UAP phenomenon and what beings are really behind it. She has experienced paranormal events all her life and offers amazing new information as to what The Paranormal really is and how it fits in with the UFO phenomenon. After all, very often if someone has a UFO experience, they are also visited by paranormal happenings. Diane shares her own experiences in this regard in this new book.

The book opens with this dramatic declaration: “Here is my hypothesis: UFOs and UAPs are from a level of existence beyond ours. This in itself is the answer to many aspects of the UFO/UAP puzzle.

“A new level of existence will become a necessity,” Diane continues, “an evolutionary mandate, as our advanced science technology opens ‘places beyond belief,’ as Neil Armstrong exclaimed. For instance, the creation of wormholes and the warping of time and space will expose astronauts to exotic energies and levels of reality for which our brains are not built. The filters of our minds limit us.”

Is it possible that our level of technological achievement will exceed the limits to which we have evolved as a species? Are we in effect leaving ourselves behind?

But there is something higher than us already at play here, according to Diane.

“The Level Beyond,” she writes, “is a combination of time travelers, extraterrestrials, and possibly other-dimensional beings. What unites them is not their specific origin but their level of existence. Their craft may vary, but they all share the fact that they are from a level of existence beyond 20th and 21st century Earth.”

Diane draws on the work of Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev, who in 1964 presented fellow scientists with what is now called the Kardashev Scale, a ranking of civilizations in the universe that runs from Type One through Type Five. Earth at present is at the 0.7 Level of Civilization on the Kardashev Scale. Well-known physicist Dr. Michio Kaku estimates that Earth will attain to Level One in perhaps 100 to 200 years.

Normally, when a “higher level” is referred to, the assumption is that it involves metaphysical or spiritual beliefs. But such is not necessarily the case, according to Diane.

Is the UFO presence on Planet Earth which we’ve called “The Level Beyond,” possibly of this first level of the Kardashev Scale?

“The Level Beyond,” she writes, “which I am hypothesizing as the source of most UFOs and UAPs, is not about any religious or spiritual belief, not about reaching Godhead, ‘The All That Is,’ or Nirvana. This is an advanced level of existence based in science and technology; there are probably good, bad and in between groups and individuals in terms of moral integrity to be found there, but that is just my opinion.”

The forces that drove this higher evolution may have been the circumstances created by technological advances, advances that demanded a shift in both consciousness and physical form. Perhaps the same is happening to us.

“We have been evolving toward this level for many years,” Diane writes, “because evolution is always at work. Some humans have interiorized this upgrade of civilization more than others. Human entanglement with computers and high tech is part of our reaching for a higher ‘altered’ level. Also, the enduring love of millions of people for ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Star Wars,’ and other science fiction is a part of our evolution. This is also true for those who are involved with UFO truth who hope that UFO Disclosure happens soon, so that everyone on the planet will know for sure that we are not alone.”

Beings From Beyond explains that we are not the end of the Human Family. There will be new species of humans, just as Neanderthals and other humans existed in the past. We are only in the middle of the human journey and we will keep changing – unless we destroy ourselves.

Diane Tessman poses with Gabe Green in his Joshua Tree, California, home.

Diane believes that we must keep reaching for the Level Beyond in order to survive as a species and to cope with future scientific advances like time travel and traversing interstellar space.

“Perhaps it is simply time,” she continues, “to leave the comfort of Earth and make an evolutionary step upward and outward, which involves strange new worlds and consciousness. It may be entirely natural.”

Beings From Beyond: They Are Here also includes a chapter that examines the Kardashev Scale in more detail, as well as chapters devoted to the phenomena of bizarre thought-forms called “Tulpas,” time travel, UFO occupants as visitors from our future and much more. Will the evolution of humankind keep pace with our technological advances in these troubled times?

BEINGS FROM BEYOND: They Are Here

UFO AGENDA: So You Want to Know the Truth?

CHANGES, Predictions for a Changing, Troubled World

Raymond Fowler And The Ever-Changing Nature Of Time

By Sean Casteel

Time Slip ConneXions: We Are Holograms

It has become an increasingly popular notion that linear time, time measured from the past, the present and the future, is not the complete story. The many variations from our normal perception of time spring from numerous source experiences, to include UFO encounters, Near Death Experiences, and Past Life Experiences. Even the CIA, in its formerly classified Remote Viewing program, encountered movements in time in addition to “seeing” the desired targets.

In his recent book, “Time Slip Connexions: We Are Holograms,” veteran UFO and paranormal researcher Raymond Fowler tackles the tricky subject of ripples in time from many angles while also demonstrating the interrelatedness of things previously thought to be completely separate phenomena.

Raymond E. Fowler

The author of eleven books on UFOs and NDEs, Fowler began his career in the paranormal as a nuts-and-bolts researcher of UFO sightings in the 1960s. Over the decades, he gradually widened his belief system to embrace alien abduction, Near Death Experiences, Out-of-Body experiences and other phenomena that came to seem linked to an overarching intelligence from which everything we know about reality originates.

So, what is a Time Slip?

“A Time Slip is an occurrence,” Fowler writes, “in which a person or persons step from their time into another time, either in the past or in the future. A person having a Time Slip may also experience a disquieting, unsettling or depressed feeling at the outset of the event. Some people have even described a sort of fog surrounding them as they emerge into another time. Others as if a vacuum is lowered over them and all sounds around them disappear at the outset of the Time Slip. This also sometimes occurs at the outset of a UFO experience.”

Fowler’s interest in the phenomenon began with his own Time Slip experience.

“One morning in the spring of 1980,” he recalls, “when I entered the half cellar of our former home in Wenham, Massachusetts, and stepped down a few steps into the full cellar, I instantly became totally paralyzed. Shocked, I found it hard to believe my eyes. A man with my build, wearing a pair of black dress pants and a white shirt, appeared from behind the furnace where our freezer is located. He walked toward me and when he was three feet away from me he turned to my right and walked out of sight toward the cellar stairs. His body was solid, but it had a rapidly vibrating appearance to it. I could not make out facial features. Then, just as suddenly, I could move. I was dumbfounded and ran into the full cellar to find no one there. I called up to my wife and asked her if she had just been down in the cellar. She had not. In any event, the figure was exactly my build and was wearing black pants and a white shirt!”

Fowler says he only later came to realize what had happened when one day he went to retrieve some frozen vegetables from the freezer in the cellar. He was wearing a pair of black dress pants and a white shirt and followed the exact same path as the apparition. He is convinced that what he saw in spring of 1980 was himself in the future.

“I can think of no other explanation,” he writes. “I was not hallucinating. I saw the man distinctly. The cellar was well lighted with sunlight pouring in a window to my left.”

Fowler continues by saying that the only time he would be attired in black dress pants and a white shirt would have been for the weddings of three of his children, in 1983, 1989, and 1991. He would continue to have Time Slip experiences and eventually decided to write Time Slip Connexions

The book examines several hypotheses concerning the structure of the universe and its relationship to time. it also provides an overview of research by the CIA that concluded that time, as we experience it, is an illusion and that so-called past events can be accessed via altered states of perception.

Time slips are a paranormal event during which people seem to travel through time by unknown means – and for unknown reasons.

One obvious and very disturbing implication of the Time Slip phenomenon is that future events can be foretold. Even Fowler’s brief encounter with his future self in the cellar implies that some events are etched in stone and that we eventually “catch up” with such events after the passage of time.

Meaning, if time is an illusion, then so is free will. Fowler goes in-depth in his investigation of current theories concerning the “Holographic Universe,” part of which leads to the conclusion that we exist in a predetermined hologram, similar to a video game, which is overseen by an advanced race of aliens who both created and control us all. We exist as mere holographic contrivances, made up of energetic atoms that masquerade as solid flesh and bone.

The late sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick wrote along similar lines, and there are those who claim that his work was appropriated and used in the popular movie franchise “The Matrix,” which also centers on the artificial, mechanized nature of reality. The subtitle of Fowler’s previous book, “UFOs: The Ultimate Abduction: We Are Property,” which demonstrates that Fowler is proceeding along a path where free will is brought into question – if not done away with completely.

UFOs: The Ultimate Abduction – We Are Property

To make his argument, Fowler offers nearly a hundred anecdotal case histories of Time Slips, from retro-cognition experiences, in which a person steps bodily into a past time and even interacts with the environment there, to glimpses of the near future that are sometimes sent as a friendly warning to help experiencers to avoid certain forms of danger.

In one of the appendixes to “Time Slip Connexions,” Fowler reports on some of the quantum physics and hard science that may be at play in the CIA’s sometimes successful remote viewing efforts. It is reassuring to learn that such a mystical and “out there” program has hard scientific support at all.

As we continue to struggle with questions of space and time, Raymond Fowler is on the frontlines, fighting to make sense of the unknowable in both scientific and spiritual terms, two fields of study that are gradually beginning to merge together into what may prove to be a beautiful and wondrous truth.

BIZARRE BAZAAR: TIM BECKLEY’S MARKETPLACE OF THE STRANGE

By Sean Casteel

When Timothy Green Beckley died in May 2021, he left behind a paranormal publishing empire that will forever be a testimony to one man’s drive and determination to learn the truth about both our world and the hidden worlds that surround it. His catalogue of books devoted to the strange and supernatural now numbers in the several dozens, dating from the present all the way back to the 1960s, when he began his first publishing ventures as a teenager.

Tim R. Swartz and I have shared the privilege of finishing up some of the incomplete projects that remained after Tim Beckley’s passing, the latest of which is called “Timothy Green Beckley’s Bizarre Bazaar.” The book is a compilation of shorter pieces authored by Beckley, Swartz and I, beginning with an introduction by Beckley’s longtime working partner Carol Ann Rodriguez.

Timothy Green Beckley’s Bizarre Bazaar

Carol provides a rundown of the many authors Tim Beckley brought to the world’s attention over the years, such as contactees George Adamski and George Hunt Williamson, as well as Nick Redfern, John Keel, the Rev. Barry Downing, and Hungarian-born psychic Maria D’Andrea. Tracy Twyman’s “Sex Slaves of the CIA” is an indication, Carol says, of how controversial some of Beckley’s titles can be, making him the “King of Fringe Publishers,” a title he humbly welcomed.

Beckley also edited newsstand publications, like “UFO Universe,” for decades, and paid his dues by working as a freelance contributor to the “Enquirer.” He was invited to speak on the subject of UFOs to a closed-door meeting of the House of Lords in London and visited Loch Ness while in the UK.

Carol concludes by saying, “Truly, it can be said of Timothy Green Beckley what has been said of other greats: His like will not be seen again.”

THE TORCH IS PASSED

As one era ends, another begins. Beckley’s imprints of Inner Light and Global Communications are still in business, (mostly on Amazon.com) but have now been joined by a new imprint run by Tim R. Swartz called Zontar Press. “Timothy Green Beckley’s Bizarre Bazaar” is the first book released by Zontar Press and the hope is that there will be many more.

What can perhaps be most easily appreciated about “Bizarre Bazaar” is how it opens up a window into a large assortment of other books Beckley brought into the world. One of the more “controversial” titles worked on by Tim Swartz and myself, as well as by several other contributors, was Screwed by the Aliens: True Sexual Encounters with ETs.”

THE SEXUAL FACTOR IS EXPLORED

In a chapter in “Bizarre Bazaar” entitled “The Sexterrestrials Are Here – And They Want To Breed With You,” the opening bullets ask: “Are you ready to explore a region of the paranormal that is typically relegated to the ‘ghetto’ neighborhood of UFO research? Does the idea of sex with aliens thrill you or repel you? You will likely be surprised to learn how commonplace sexual incidents onboard the ships and among the aliens truly are. It’s a frequent happenstance, but is rarely talked about, even among diehard believers in alien abduction.”

By employing several writers to tackle the subject of sex with aliens, Beckley was able to provide numerous perspectives on the issue that run the gamut from extremely hostile accusations of rape to more benign beliefs, like a benevolent hybrid breeding program that will ultimately save mankind from total extinction. It was Beckley’s intention to confront the sexual issue head on, from many points of view, and as honestly as the data allow.

 A longtime acquaintance of Beckley’s, the artist David Huggins, claimed to have a romantic interstellar relationship with a pretty female alien called “Crescent,” whom Huggins called his “soul mate.” Their relationship lasted for decades and resulted in Crescent bearing the children of Huggins. He filled many canvases depicting his amorous adventures with the otherworldly woman and also put together a movie on their relationship called “Love and Saucers” that is available for streaming On Demand on iTunes, Amazon, Vimeo, Google Play and YouTube. It’s a fascinating reversal of the more frequently encountered horrifying atrocities of sex-related UFO experiences and may truly be a case of “Love Triumphant.”

Artist David Huggins insists he has mated with Crescent, a female alien, since the age of 17, and has produced a number of alien children.

When Beckley and his team of researchers were writing “Screwed By The Aliens,” the word “exophiliac” was unearthed. It means “a person who craves sex with aliens.” If, on the other hand, you shy away from the aliens and want them to keep their hands to themselves, you are a bit harder to classify, Beckley explains. “Astrophobia” is a fear of outer space and everything in it, so that would include ETs. “Xenophobia” is a fear of anyone from another place, often defined as “a fear of foreigners.” In any case, Beckley grappled mightily with finding language to fit the phenomenon.

BECKLEY’S SALAD DAYS

A young Tim Beckley speaks at the 1966 Congress of Scientific Ufologists in Cleveland, Ohio.

Beckley’s own contact experiences, as is so often case with those who have a history of encounters, began in his childhood.

In an early chapter of “Bizarre Bazaar,” Beckley writes, “While it is open for debate, I can trace my UFOlogical roots back to 1957, when I sighted two objects revolving overhead in the sky. One was hovering over an abandoned factory building across the street from where l lived in New Jersey, while the other stood still almost perfectly above the house that my grandparents owned. I didn’t observe any portholes, ‘little green men’ didn’t wave at me, but I fully realized – despite a pronouncement by the authorities in the paper a couple of days later to the effect that we were all hypnotized by the appearance of a couple of weather balloons – that these lights, objects, craft (call them what you may) seemed to be under intelligent control. Indeed, they were not bobbing and weaving in the air current. In fact, they seemed to know what they were doing (whatever that was), which I think – at least partly – was to get my attention and push me into unknown territory.”       

The sighting experience changed Beckley’s life. He bought all the material he could find on the subject, including a copy of “FATE Magazine,” for whom he would later write as an adult. He started writing letters to the local newspaper, as well as pestering a couple of reporters he knew who shared his thinking on the subject, meaning that we were being observed by someone or something else.

In the ensuing decades, Beckley became an expert on the subject, published several nationally distributed newsstand magazines on UFOs, and eventually built his own micro-mini “empire,” publishing nearly 300 volumes on the paranormal. To see most of them, simply go to Amazon.com and type in Inner Light – Global Communications under Books.

Even more of Beckley’s well-spent youth can be discovered in a reprint of his earlier work called “Inside the Saucers,” which deals further with his adolescence in the thrall of the UFOs. The reprinted book is subtitled “Mr. UFO’s Teenage Years,” and was published in 2017.

Inside the Saucers – Mr. UFOs Teenage Years

“STUMBLE BACK INTO TIME,” the back cover beckons, “WITH THIS GENUINE COLLECTOR’S REPRINT OF A RECENTLY REDISCOVERED UFO CLASSIC.

“HERE, AFTER FIFTY YEARS, ARE THE CONFESSIONS AND RECOLLECTIONS OF A TEEN UFO RESEARCHER TURNED SPACED-OUT ‘STUD.’

“As UFO satirist and ‘Exploring the Bizarre’ co-host Tim Beckley so righteously puts it, ‘A lot of boys my age were probably starting to think about girls and sneaking a peek at their father’s “Playboy” collection. Well, it took me a few years to get into the sins of the flesh (as it turned out, about ten years later I became a reporter for “Hustler” magazine). Instead, at 14 or 15, I was reading magazines like “Fate” and “Flying Saucers From Other Worlds.” And along the way I hooked up with a small collective of other blossoming teenage UFOlogists who eventually became part of the backbone of the field as it exists today: Allen Greenfield, Dave Halperin, Gene Steinberg, Rick Hilberg, Jerry Clark – this is as much the story of the early days of their calling as it is mine.’

“In 1962, Tim Beckley placed a notice in the Club News section of “Flying Saucers” magazine requesting correspondence and an exchange of information with like-minded individuals willing to share their knowledge about those silvery ships seen around the world, best known in those days as ‘flying saucers.’

“Through the personals column of this relatively obscure publication, he met several other teenagers who had started to form their own UFO organizations, so ‘Timmy’ followed suit by setting up “The Interplanetary News Service,” which issued a semi-professional publication that garnered a worldwide circulation of 1500 plus. Many members of his ‘youth group’ were well-established UFO experiencers and elder statesmen in the field. The INS became the third largest UFO group in the nation, behind NICAP and APRO.

“In order to finance his mushrooming enterprise, Beckley began to issue privately published UFO books and literature that would help further the cause and defray his expenses. ‘Inside the Saucers’ was the first such work. It was printed on an old fashioned (appropriately enough) spirit duplicator, and had a print run of 300 copies, which sold out in a matter of months. This ‘new’ edition is an exact replica of that first work, with only the addition of several photos and the elimination of typos.

“Regardless of the age of the authors, as can be rapidly determined, the writing is polished and sophisticated for its time in the history of UFO research. In this reprint of a rare collector’s item, you will become personally involved in a discussion of the following ‘long lost’ topics: A possible solution to the mystery of the Men In Black; How some UFOs may be the product of Nazi technology (a prediction made years before this concept was put forward seriously elsewhere); Possible synchronicities associated with the Great Pyramid; The Unidentified Submerged Object that plunged into a New Jersey reservoir; A recap of the most dramatic UFO sightings and encounters from this period by “UFO Encyclopedia” author Jerome Clark; A detailed summary of 15 years of UFO research by George D. Fawcett; AND MUCH MORE!

“The late Brad Steiger, a longtime master of paranormal literature, had these fond comments: ‘Bless all those Teen UFOlogists! They were great supporters of a young Brad as he began his UFO career with “Strangers From The Skies” in 1966. . . Forever allies!’”

A DEMON WITH BLOOD ON ITS HANDS?

Amityville.

The very name of the small Long Island, New York, community instantly conjures visions of horror, of a death-dealing psychopath laying waste his parents, two sisters and two brothers with a Marlin rifle. The egregious murders were chronicled in both a bestselling book and a major Hollywood studio movie and have become, pardon the pun, a “household name”: The Amityville Horror. 

The convicted killer was Ronald DeFeo, Jr., whom one judge called “the devil incarnate.” DeFeo told varying versions of what happened the night of November 13, 1974, including the claim that he was possessed by an evil spirit and had committed the crime through no free will of his own.

While it is of course impossible to decide the existence or nonexistence of the devil and his demons in a court of law, the evil-spirit-possession argument was entered along with an insanity plea. Ultimately, Defeo received a 25 years to life sentence for each of his victims and remains in prison today.

But is it so easy to simply scoff at Defeo’s claim to have been an unwitting agent for the devil? Could it possibly be that Defeo was telling the truth of what happened?

This is one of many issues dealt with in the book issued by Timothy Green Beckley’s Global Communications/Conspiracy Journal publishing house. Entitled “Amityville and Beyond, The Lore of the Poltergeist and Other Petrifying Paranormal Phenomena,” the book breaks new ground in making some overdue correlations between spirit possession, ghosts and even the UFO/alien presence. What Beckley and his writers are aiming for is to make apparent an overarching “theory of everything” that ties up the loose ends of many different forms of paranormal activity in the world today.

A PARANORMAL RESEARCHER’S EARLY POLTERGEIST ENCOUNTER

Paul Eno

Paul Eno is among the topnotch researchers Beckley assembled for the writing of “Amityville and Beyond.” Currently Eno hosts, along with his son Ben, a radio show called “Behind the Paranormal” based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

“American history is full of poltergeists and nasty and vengeful spirits,” Eno writes. “We’ve written about the Bell Witch that frightened a U.S. president so badly that he fled in the early morning hours from a Tennessee homestead. Furthermore, this book contains the full story of the dreadful Amherst poltergeist, which is just as scary as any similar saga of evil you are likely to hear about from an historical perspective.

“My attitude about such cases,” Eno continues, “is a bit more ‘radical’ than the views of other researchers, who tend to treat such poltergeist outbreaks as either restless spirits gone awry or put them in the general category of a purely psychological manifestation attributable to the witnesses’ psychological state. I see such outbreaks more akin to a crossing of parallel dimensions by a variety of beings often mistaken for the undead – though they seem to have, in many instances, the same attributes as so-called ‘aliens.’ Even cryptids from the darkest realms of our minds have recently been brought into the poltergeist equation.”

Here Eno has very succinctly expressed the overall theme of Amityville and Beyond,” that aliens and cryptid creatures like Dogmen are cut from the same cloth as “noisy ghosts” and possessive demons. Eno at one time was an assistant to the famed Ed and Lorraine Warren, the husband/wife paranormal researchers whose work has been the subject of the movies “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2.” 

In November 1974, Eno found himself on Lindley Street in Bridgeport, Connecticut, along with Ed, Lorraine and Father William Charbonneau, and an indeterminate number of police and reporters. And a very frightened little family.

The Goodin house in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

“The latter consisted of Gerard Goodin and his adopted daughter and only child, Marcia (pronounced Mar-SEE-a),” Eno writes. “Shortly Mom (Laura Goodin) returned from the St. Vincent’s Hospital Emergency Room with her right big toe bandaged. It had been broken by a flying television set. The house itself was a mess. ‘The Thing,’ as Laura called it, had been tearing pictures, especially religious objects, off the wall all morning. A priest had come to bless the house, apparently to no avail.”

Calling it the best-witnessed poltergeist event in history, Eno says that violent phenomena were witnessed by almost 100 people in the Bridgeport outbreak. Eno was on the scene himself when some of the bizarre incidents transpired.

“I stood in the kitchen,” Eno writes, “with three firefighters on one side of me and three police officers on the other and watched the refrigerator float off the floor, turn right, turn back, then settle gently back to the floor. Late in the evening of that first day, I was sitting at the kitchen table with Lorraine. Also in the kitchen was a huge police officer, Ed Warren and a reporter from WNAB Radio. Lorraine suddenly let out a yelp. I watched as a second-degree burn, with its trademark white blister, appeared on Lorraine’s left hand, between thumb and forefinger. This was all caught on the radio reporter’s tape, which still exists. You can hear a youthful me stating, ‘There’s a blister forming!’”

TOUCHING THE NEAR-INVISIBLE

At another point during Eno’s visits to the Bridgeport home, he was alone in the house with the Goodins, playing monopoly with Marcia to pass the time and to help her relax.

“Suddenly an acrid smell, like ozone mixed with sulfur, came from the kitchen,” Eno recounts. “Instantly Gerard Goodin was up, dashed into the kitchen and started chanting in Latin! My skin tingled with an electrical charge that I now associate with the electromagnetic ‘branes,’ as physicists call them, presumably the boundaries between parallel worlds.

“A whitish, gauzy cloud began to form in the kitchen,” Eno continues, “and Goodin was back in the living room at once. I was convinced that four entities were ‘arriving’ in the kitchen from Marcia’s adjacent bedroom. They weren’t entirely invisible, and there were four distinct shapes coming from the kitchen in a line. They were each about four and a half feet high and had rounded tops, with no discernible head or shoulders.”

Goodin saw the figures also, and he followed one as it moved from the kitchen. As the mystery entities entered the living room one by one, Laura Goodin started to cry while Marcia clung to Eno for comfort. Then one of the almost-invisible things approached Eno and stopped.

“That’s when I made my mistake,” Eno confesses. “I began to feel angry toward this thing, which at the time I thought was a demon in the classic, theological sense. I was angry because it was obviously trying to get to this child. The whatever-it-was simply fed on the negative energy I was releasing and grew stronger.

Poltergeist victim Marcia gives her pet a big hug while trying to put the events of the past out of her mind.

“What happened next was the biggest shock I’d experienced in paranormal work up to that time. As the entity moved to get around me and at the girl, I instinctively pushed toward it. It resisted as though it was entirely material. In fact, I felt flesh and bone structure as if this were a solid being. These ‘demons’ were supposed to be spirits!”

Eno says it took him many years to come to grips with the experience, let alone explain it in terms of parallel worlds. He never even reported it to the Warrens, and it was decades before he could write or speak about it.

“While I stood there dazed,” he continues, “the entity got around me and threw Marcia across the living room. She ran back to me, crying. Finally, as the gauzy cloud inundated the whole interior of the house, and as I tired from, I would say today, being drained by this powerful parasite, I ordered everyone outside.”

Although the police had cleared away the crowds and cordoned off both ends of Lindley Street, there were still thousands of onlookers gawking from each end of the block.

“I could hear a voice in the crowd,” Eno writes, “preaching something about all this being a ‘sign of the end.’ These being the days long before cell phones, I had to use a neighbor’s phone to call the Warrens. It took them an hour to get back into the city because of all the traffic caused by this paranormal circus. When they finally arrived at about 9:15 P.M., we all reentered the house. Things were quiet.”

When Eno writes about the creature he pushed against as being almost invisible yet possessing a flesh and bone structure, what manner of being is this? It sounds not unlike the physical-yet-not-physical “bodies” of the familiar gray aliens whose stock in trade is the abduction of chosen subjects for whatever dark reasons are left for us to discover. As Eno so clearly explains, the aliens and demons who cross between dimensions may be one and the same entity but are given different names in scripture and folklore that vary according to who encounters the strange interlopers.   

AND THEN THE TERROR SPOKE . . .

Evil speaking voices are also dealt with in a chapter of “Amity and Beyond” by Tim R. Swartz called “When the Poltergeist Finds Its Voice.”

“It can be terrifying enough,” Swartz writes, “when a poltergeist makes its appearance in a household. Rocks thrown about, strange bangs on the walls, moving furniture, items disappearing and then reappearing – this is enough to set anyone on edge. However, when a poltergeist finds its voice and starts to talk, you know that events have decidedly taken a turn for the worse.

“Poltergeist activity has been recorded throughout history,” Swartz goes on, “and is probably the most prolific of all supernatural events. A poltergeist is extremely aware of its surroundings and will often quickly respond to suggestions by observers and other external stimuli. This shows that there is some kind of ‘intelligence’ behind its pranks and not just some random psychokinesis (PK). This intelligence, along with an ability to communicate, will manifest in a myriad of ways. Pieces of paper with strange messages appear; writing on the walls; children’s toys will be arranged to make words; and, perhaps the most shocking, they will sometimes start to speak out loud.”  

A poltergeist is known to create all sorts of havoc in a household.

According to Swartz, when a poltergeist achieves speech, it generally starts as animal-like growls and whispers that slowly evolve into discernible words. Most poltergeists never reach this stage in their development, but, once they do, a clear “personality” emerges from what were previously just random events.

Swartz recounts some case histories in the annals of poltergeist hauntings in which the intruding spirit spoke to its victims.

The 1817 case of the “Bell Witch,” the name for the poltergeist who took up residence among a Tennessee farming family headed by John Bell, Sr., is an interesting example. “The Witch” was extremely talkative and could imitate the voices of people from the area.

“The poltergeist was said to speak at a nerve-wracking pitch when displeased,” Swartz reports, “while at other times it sang and talked in low musical tones. In one instance, it was alleged to have repeated, verbatim, sermons administered by two preachers, occurring at separate locations, that took place simultaneously. The sermons recited by the witch were verified by people attending the churches as being identical in voice, tone, inflection and content. The poltergeist was even known to attend church and sing along with the congregation, using the most beautiful voice anyone had ever heard.”

Stories of a talking mongoose named Gef, who bedeviled an Irish family in the 1930s, as well as the tale of a Spanish family who heard maniacal laughter and voices emanating from their kitchen stove, help to round out Swartz’s examination of real-life incidents of “talking” spirits.

He also touches on the Middle Eastern folklore and Islamic theology dealing with the “djinn,” or genies, who can take possession of buildings or locations and torment any person who goes to live there. The djinn can levitate and cause objects to disappear as well as take any physical form they want – humans, animals and anything else. They can mimic the voices of deceased humans, claiming to be spirits or Satan. They enjoy playing tricks and frightening people. In fact, they can sense strong emotions such as fear or grief and gain energy from those powerful feelings.

“Like humans,” Swartz writes, “the djinn have distinct personalities. There are those who are of low intelligence, quick to anger and fond of playing tricks. Others have a superior intellect and act more along the lines of guardian angels rather than tricksters.”

Tim Beckley looks to hitch a ride with a friend to the mothership.

THE VOLCANO AND THE GODDESS

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.

“Other Side Of Midnight” host Frank Morano hosts WABC nightly show.

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.

On Dec. 29, 2020, a “Blue UFO” was seen crashing into ocean.

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.

“Kahuna Power” exposes all of the esoteric secrets of the Islands.

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.

Tim Beckley searches for akualeles/UFOs on Oahu.

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.

Akualele, “flying god,” manifests as a fireball, as dramatized here.

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.

Did tourists inadvertently photograph a UFO in this “hidden valley?”

SERIOUS WARNINGS

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!

Madame Pele manifests out of volcano.

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.

John A. Keel: The Indiana Jones of the Unexplained

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.

John Keel, 1967

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.

The Fickle Finger of Fate

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:

John A. Keel with Timothy Green Beckley and a frog which rained upon them.

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.

Hairy “Wildman” was spotted in upper NY State in the 1940s.

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.

Strange Mutants, published in 1982 by Global Communications

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.

Artist rendition of Mothman.

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?

“Yeti” footprint photographed by Eric Earle Shipton in 1951.

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.

Timothy Green Beckley seen on William Shatners Weird Or What?

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:

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.

UFOS AND THE FUTURE OF HUMANKIND – PROPHECIES FROM ALIEN REALMS

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?

People have envisioned many ways that the world could end.

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.

Hopi Chief Dan Katchongva

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

Tuella

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.               

The Space Brothers are concentrating equally hard on sending out positive thoughts of goodwill and brotherly love.

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

Cosmic guardians are watching over the Earth during these troubled times.

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

Carol Ann Rodriguez

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. 

Diane Tessman proclaims UFOs could be occupied by time travelers.

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.”
