AREA 51 – YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED TO “KEEP OUT!”

By Sean Casteel

Timothy Green Beckley’s Area 51 – Warning Keep Out!

Author’s note: This article is being written a couple of weeks before the scheduled day to storm Area 51, which is September 20, 2019. Much has been written in anticipation of the event by even the mainstream media, which has been reporting on how the expected onslaught of UFO believers is being poorly received by the Nevada locals near Area 51. Nevertheless, permits have been approved, camping grounds will be available in the back of the Little A-Le-Inn and rock bands will perform.

Helen and Page have their first alien encounter at the Little A-Le-Inn in Rachel, Nevada.

The warning signs outside the mysterious military base say that lethal force is authorized and will be used against unlawful intruders. Meanwhile, even some diehard UFO believers are strongly cautioning potential visitors to stay away and “let sleeping dogs lie,” as the saying goes. The road to the site is barren and bringing plenty of one’s own water and gas is a necessity.

In an effort to fill the need for a book that helps the reader understand the entire picture of Area 51 and similar installations around the world, Global Communications is offering – hot off the presses – a new book called “Timothy Green Beckley’s Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” The following is a survey of Area 51’s history and an overview of its counterparts in Britain, Australia and Russia. By way of introduction, we begin with a capsule history of Area 51 by noted writer and television news producer Tim R. Swartz, one of the many contributors to the new book.

TAKING A TRIP TO DREAMLAND

“Area 51 is the worst kept secret around,” Swartz writes. “Officially, ‘Area 51’ is the common name given to a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base in Southern Nevada. The Russians knew about it decades ago. It has become a pop culture cliché seen in comics and movies such as ‘Independence Day.’ It even has the honor of being featured on an episode of ‘The Simpsons.’ (Lisa actually found Area 51-A on ‘Lost our Lisa.’)

“Probably the best known aspect of Area 51,” he continues, “also referred to as Groom Lake, are the rumors – and beliefs of some – that it has stored away, in some secret hangar, crashed extraterrestrial spaceships and possibly even their alien pilots (living or dead). It is hard to pinpoint exactly when these rumors started, or even who started them. In the 1980s, computer bulletin boards, hosted on Compuserve and Prodigy, were created for the discussion of UFOs and UFO reports. In these discussions were references to a ‘Secret Air Force Base’ in Nevada where the alleged crashed UFO found near Roswell was stored.”

ENTER THE COLD WAR

According to Swartz: “What we do know about Area 51 is that in the early 1950s, with the Cold War in full swing, the U.S. worried about the USSR’s technology, intentions, and ability to launch a surprise attack. Because of this, the U.S. Navy and Air Force sent low-flying aircraft on reconnaissance missions over the USSR, but they were at constant risk of being shot down. In November 1954, President Eisenhower approved the secret development of a high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft called the U-2. .

“A secret location was needed for testing of these black budget aircraft. They found it in the southern Nevada desert near a salt flat known as Groom Lake, which had once been a World War II aerial gunnery range for Army Air Corps pilots. At this time there were also a number of atmospheric nuclear test sites situated throughout the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) first announced the existence of this base in 1955 as Watertown.

“A booklet distributed to the press by the AEC in 1957 stated that the facility was within the Las Vegas Bombing and Gunnery Range. It was described as a small complex with ‘dormitories, equipment, buildings and a small airstrip.’”

U-2 testing began in July 1955, under the authority of the CIA.

“The tests went extremely well,” Swartz writes, “considering they were frequently interrupted, because the personnel at the base had to be evacuated whenever a nuclear test was to take place nearby. The base suffered extensive damage during some of these detonations. It’s not known what the long term effects of exposure to radiation had on personnel stationed at the base. The veil of secrecy surrounding Area 51 made sure no information would ever get out.

“While the U-2 was operating out of Area 51, civilian airline pilots would occasionally spot it at high altitudes and report seeing a UFO. Air Force officials knew the majority of these unexplained sightings were U-2 tests, but they were not allowed to reveal these details to the public. So, ‘natural phenomena’ or ‘high-altitude weather research’ became go-to explanations for these UFO sightings. This may be the beginnings of Area 51 becoming synonymous with alien space ships.

“U-2 operations were moved to other locations in the late 1950s, but other top secret military aircrafts continued tests at Area 51. Over the years, the SR-71 Blackbird, A-12 and numerous stealth aircrafts like Bird of Prey, F-117A, and TACIT BLUE have all been developed and tested in the Nevada desert.”

SMILE FOR THE CAMERA

Skylab was the first U.S. space station launched and operated by NASA.

Swartz further reports that, “Despite its remote location, the government has had difficulties keeping the base secret. For example, in 1974, astronauts taking part in a Skylab mission accidentally photographed the airfield at Groom Lake. On April 19, 1974, someone in the CIA sent the Director of Central Intelligence, William Colby, a memorandum regarding this situation.”

The memo read, in part that, “The issue arises from the fact that the recent Skylab mission inadvertently photographed” the airfield at Groom Lake. “There were specific instructions not to do this,” the memo stated, and Groom “was the only location which had such an instruction.”

In other words, the CIA considered no other spot on Earth to be as sensitive as Groom Lake, and the astronauts had just taken a picture of it.

“This photo has been going through an interagency reviewing process aimed at a decision on how it should be handled,” the unnamed CIA official wrote. “There is no agreement. DoD elements (USAF, NRO, JCS, ISA) all believe it should be withheld from public release. NASA, and to a large degree State, has taken the position that it should be released – that is, allowed to go into the Sioux National Repository and to let nature take its course.”

The CIA memo writer added that “There are some complicated precedents which, in fairness, should be reviewed before a final decision.” These included “A question of whether anything photographed in the United States can be classified if the platform is unclassified. Such complex issues in the UN concerning United States policies toward imagery from space” and “the question of whether the photograph can be withheld without leaking.”

Swartz tells us that, “The answer to the last question is obvious: the photo was withheld, and this fact never leaked. It has only come to light now, after the CIA declassified the document. In a cover note to the memorandum written by the Director of Central Intelligence, William Colby, there was speculation as to whether or not the photo needed to be suppressed because the quality wasn’t all that great. He also noted that the USSR already had photos of the base from their own spy satellites, and if the photo was released, they could just say that classified USAF work is being done there.

“Colby’s questions almost seem naïve given the debates that have raged within the U.S. intelligence community for decades over the need for secrecy. Those within the intelligence community who have asked ‘What is the harm in acknowledging the obvious?’ have almost always lost the argument. As for the Skylab photo…nothing more is known of the incident other than the fact that the photograph was never released.”

UFOS AND AREA 51

So why UFOs and Area 51?

“Physicist Bob Lazar came forward in 1989,” Swartz recounts, “to reveal that he worked on back-engineered extraterrestrial spacecraft at a secret location just south of Area 51 called S-4. Despite the criticism and outrage about his story, he has never backed down on his claims and says that everything happened just as he said. It is Lazar’s story that has fueled most of the widespread beliefs that Area 51 and UFOs go hand in hand.

Swartz makes reference to paranormal author Nick Redfern, who theorizes that Russian espionage agents embedded in Las Vegas and spying on Area 51 were getting help from unwitting UFO researchers. The U.S. Government, military and intelligence community didn’t know where those Russian agents were, or who they were. As a way to try and uncover the identity of the Russian agents, a disinformation campaign using Area 51 may have been created. 

Bob Lazar claimed that nine alien spacecraft were being tested and analysed at the secretive S-4 near Area 51.

Bob Lazar could well have been a patsy, a decoy to spread tales of acquired UFOs, dead aliens, and cosmic conspiracies. Lazar may have worked out of S-4, and he also may have fully believed those supposedly top secret briefing papers that told tales of ancient encounters between the human race and aliens, and genetic alterations to the human species made by advanced ETs. In that sense, Lazar was perhaps a completely unwitting figure in this espionage mind-game.

Lazar admitted to journalist George Knapp that while he was at S-4, the staff “play so many mind games there.” Lazar also admitted that certain memories from his time spent at Area 51 were suspiciously hazy. This was something which led Lazar to believe that his mind had been tampered with – possibly via chemicals, hypnosis, and MK-Ultra-type “mind-control” technologies.

AREA 51-WARNING KEEP OUT! WITH JOSHUA P. WARREN

Everyone wants to know “what the hell goes on” behind that line in the sand and the surrounding fencing and the ominous signs that tell you TO KEEP OUT? Famous paranormal researcher Joshua P. Warren recently had a “time warp” experience off the Extraterrestrial Highway.

Warren has traveled the world investigating mysterious phenomena and made the cover of a science journal in 2004, for lab experiments regarding energy fields in nature related to UFOs and the enigmatic Brown Mountain Lights. In the summer of 2018, he made international news for a discovering a “time anomaly” south of Las Vegas.

To see his mind-blowing photos and videos visit http://www.JoshuaPWarren.com — He owns the Haunted Asheville Ghost Tours and the Asheville Mystery Museum in North Carolina, plus the new “Creepy Vegas Ghost and UFO Show” in Las Vegas, Nevada. The title “AREA 51 — WARNING KEEP OUT” is derived from the new book title packaged by Timothy G Beckley co host of Exploring the Bizarre and Mr UFOs Secret Files on YouTube.

THE BRITISH ANSWER TO AREA 51

Nigel Watson is another in Beckley’s stable of writers who contributes to “Area 51: Warning! Keep Out!” As you may gather from his name, Watson hails from the UK.

“Some Ufologists in the UK suspect,” Watson writes, “that the government conducts UFO research at a number of secret locations scattered throughout the country. The most attention has been focused on RAF Rudloe Manor, Wiltshire, which has a vast underground tunnel system and chambers. These have been used for storing ammunition, aircraft construction and as operations rooms during WWII. After the war, it has been used for various functions, including being a communications and operational hub for the UK’s military communications satellite system. This link with outer space and the high security around the base no doubt cemented its link with UFOs and is the reason why it has the reputation as Britain’s equivalent to Area 51.

“Numerous Ufologists have visited the site or have even tried to get inside it to discover what alien evidence is hiding there. The fascination with this location is highlighted in a report by Daniele Mandelli, titled simply ‘RAF Rudloe Manor.’ She provides a thorough history of the place and tells how:

It has been rumored that Rudloe Manor is Britain’s version of Area 51.

“On 15th May 1997, Graham Wilson (Society for Paranormal UFO Research, SPUR, Head Office), Roger Mallett (SPUR Wiltshire Office) and myself, (Daniele Mandelli (SPUR London Office) made the journey to Rudloe Manor to see the facilities for ourselves. I had already been once before, but had only driven past a few times without stopping to have a good look round. This time would be different, I’d expected trouble and I was not disappointed! We had come well prepared, with binoculars, cameras, and an ordnance survey map. I’d also studied reports on Rudloe Manor in Matthew Williams’ ‘Truth Seekers Review,’ and had spoken with him about the trip on the phone, so I was pretty confident of my knowledge on the base, what to look for and what could be expected.”

Their visit resulted in them being told to go away by the base security guards and did not amount to much. Matthew Williams’ report in “Truth Seekers Review,” “Secrecy Shakedown, Part Two,” about his visit to the site on 25 December, 1994, with Paul Damon, is far more dramatic. A white security van blocked their vehicle and the driver questioned them. When they said they were Ufologists, he said he would go to check their credentials and warned that if they tried driving off they would be taken out of circulation. When their credentials were accepted, they were told not to take any photographs and when they left they were followed by a police car for several miles. (This should strike the present reader as being nearly identical to what happens when civilians stray too far at Area 51!) 

The following year, Matthew made another trip to the area, where his activities were followed by what he regarded as MI5 operatives and he was questioned by Ministry of Defense (MoD) police, who did not like him asking about the underground base. As with other such enterprises, nothing much was discovered except that the authorities were spooked by people trying to gain access to high security sites. Ufologists seem to think this confirms that they are keeping alien/UFO evidence under wraps from public gaze but it is more to do with protecting down-to-earth national military secrets and protecting them from enemies of the state.

Nick Pope, who formerly ran the UFO desk for the British government, did confess that there are facilities similar to Area 51in the UK: 

“Is there a British Area 51? Yes and no. Exotic – but decidedly terrestrial – aviation technology has been designed and tested at RAE Farnborough, the BAE Systems site at Warton, and a handful of other locations. But geography is against us Brits. The comparatively small size of the UK means that there simply isn’t space to do what the Americans do. We don’t have deserted areas of hundreds of square miles where we can test fly our shiny new toys in private.”

PINE GAP: AUSTRALIA’S AREA 51

The tentacles of the US intelligence community reach into Australia, where they are firmly clutching a top secret base Down Under. Known as Pine Gap, the facility is located in the Australian Outback, and is one of a number of bases located worldwide within the United Kingdom/USA network.

According to a website called “Cosmic Conspiracies,” which bills itself as Europe’s Biggest and Most Popular UFO/Paranormal Website: “Pine Gap is very remote and seems to have a multitude of functions attached to it. It has been linked to the UFO phenomenon by a number of researchers, and appears to have been the source of the ‘beam’ that appeared on the famous STS 48 footage, causing the anomalous objects, caught on the Space Shuttle’s video camera, to veer off in a multitude of directions. This has caused some researchers to speculate that Pine Gap is home to ground-based ‘Star Wars’ weaponry, capable of a first-strike against UFOs or foreign satellites in low Earth orbit.”

The website then notes that Timothy Good, a respected author on the subject of UFOs and the attendant government cover-up, has written about Pine Gap on several occasions. 

Pine Gap is run by the CIA, the NSA, and the NRO. Officially it is a satellite surveillance base. In 2013, NSA analyst Edward Snowden revealed that Pine Gap contributed to the NSA’s global interception and collection of internet and telephone communications.

“Located twelve miles from Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory,” Good writes, “Pine Gap is a highly secret communications base run by the National Security Agency. Ostensibly a ‘Joint Defence Space Research Facility,’ sponsored by both the American and Australian defence departments, Pine Gap serves principally as a downlink for geosynchronous SIGINT (signals intelligence) satellites.

“It was established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1966,” Good continues, “and is run jointly by the CIA and the NSA. According to one American observer, ‘The Australians have accorded the Pine Gap facility remarkable hospitality. People and cargo routinely fly in and out, entering and exiting without the burden of customs or immigration checks. The place enjoys almost extra-territorial status.’”

The website posting goes on to say, “It is clear that the Americans control this massive facility on foreign soil. This would not be surprising, given the historic arrangement undertaken by the signatories of the UK-USA agreement. Australia appears to be a junior partner of a signals intelligence-gathering operation that is dominated by America and Britain. The odd thing about Pine Gap is its placement. Where the British spy base GCHQ is located on the outskirts of the English town of Cheltenham (and is currently subject to a high profile, 600 million pounds redevelopment), Pine Gap’s remoteness is almost akin to Area 51 in Nevada.

“It’s little wonder, then, that rumors abound about UFO research and development at this facility. Its low profile might very well be due to the sensitivity of American operations being carried out on Australian soil. It is well known, for instance, that GCHQ and Menwith Hill in England have a strong American presence, but this is acceptable here in Britain because of the ‘special relationship’ between our two countries, especially with respect to sharing intelligence information.

“Would the Australian public at large be so sympathetic to an overt American presence in the Northern Territories? It seems unlikely. Even so, there may be some truth to the rumors of UFOs and space weaponry at Pine Gap, the evidence for which continues to grow.”

UNDERGROUND BASE AT PINE GAP

A scientist among Australia’s elite in a key position revealed that there are at least ten top-secret American facilities in Australia with the so-called “Joint Defence Space Research Facility” at Pine Gap being the most important.

The Pine Gap base was built by American workers flown in for that purpose on a shift basis. The base became operational after two years.

“Large underground facilities are rumored to extend some twelve miles below the base,” the report continues. “Long tunnels are laid out in a pattern similar to the spokes of a wheel, and extend several miles from the center of the base. In a deep, shielded underground chamber, a secret nuclear reactor similar in size to those used to power submarines was installed to drive large AC and DC generators. Reportedly, extending some 20,000 feet below the base is a borehole containing an ultra-low frequency antenna that is apparently used for secret experiments supposedly related to Nikola Tesla’s resonance theories as well as low-frequency communications throughout the world.

“Pine Gap is a multi-billion dollar operation of great importance to the American government,” the report says.

UFO SIGHTINGS ARE A PART OF THE PICTURE

Pine Gap employees have spoken of “electromagnetic devices which manifested themselves as UFOs and even alien beings at Pine Gap.”

In the aftermath of the construction of the secret underground facility at Pine Gap, the number of UFO sightings in the area has increased to epic proportions. One such incident, in 1989, involved three hunters who were on an all-night shooting trip in the hills near Pine Gap.

“At around 4:30 AM,” the anonymous source narrates, “they observed a large camouflaged door open on the side of a low hill inside the security compound and a metallic, circular disc appear from the gaping black hole. The disc tipped on its edge and disappeared vertically at tremendous speed. The door then slowly shut, and everything returned to normal. The camouflage was so good that from their vantage point they were unable to observe anything unusual about the area after the door closed.”

Another incident with a camouflaged door was also recorded.

“Another camouflaged door case occurred when two members of the Northern Territory Police,” the report said, “who were taking part in a search for a missing Alice Springs child, watched as three ‘bathtub-shaped’ objects flew slowly over the base and then one by one disappeared into an oblong black hole in a hillside. This also occurred during the early hours of the morning. As the two police officers had arranged to meet other members of the search party, they left without seeing the door close.”

The report also describes other UFO sightings at the Pine Gap underground base, all of which point to a conspiracy between secret military forces and some of the many alien races who are said to be visiting the Earth and carrying out their own agenda, an agenda our governments may be helpless to do anything about.

“Though its communications functions are important,” the report says, “its research and development sections situated below the surface are considered vital to the future of the planet. Here extraterrestrials conduct their work in partial cooperation with human scientists. They live in special conditions in virtual isolation, and come and go as they please.”

UFO ATTACK ON RUSSIA’S KAPUSTIN YAR

In the 1940s and 1950s, as the flying saucer phenomenon began to make its presence felt in the skies over America, the communist enemies of the U.S. were also receiving their fair share of UFO events. The Soviets were not exempt from increasing contact with apparent aliens and were also subject to more and more reports of spacecraft entering the airspace over Russia.

PAUL STONEHILL DELIVERS SOME HARD FACTS

A British website called “The Daily Star Online” published an interview with Soviet-born UFO researcher and author Paul Stonehill in which he said, “The Soviets were shocked so many UFOs could penetrate their borders and basically just do what they wanted without any control from the Kremlin. There were many more cases of direct encounters than in the United States, and anything which was flying over the Soviet Union was very interested in secret military installations.”

In fact, according to Stonehill, throughout the Cold War and the space race Soviet forces frequently clashed with UFOs.

“The Kremlin was paranoid,” he said, “but they could not do anything about it. They tried on several occasions where orders were given out from on high to shoot down UFOs, or local commanders would take it upon themselves. However, it always ended badly for them.”

In his research, Stonehill uncovered “a culture of total secrecy over the phenomenon in the Soviet Union,” says The Daily Star Online. “Kremlin bigwigs would pass off any public reports of the phenomenon as ‘a hoax perpetrated by the Western powers.’”

A secret research program called SETKA was established in 1977 after the Petrozavodsk incident in which 48 UFOs appeared in the atmosphere across the Soviet Union. The incident climaxed with a huge glowing object appearing overhead – seemingly beaming shafts of light towards the Earth. The goal of the SETKA program was to work out what the Petrozavodsk ships and other similar UFOs were, even as higher Soviet authorities acknowledged that the craft could not be of Earth-bound origin.

While the SETKA archives were shared among the top military minds and scientists, much of what was learned remains highly classified. Forms were distributed among soldiers, sailors and airmen to enable them to file fully detailed reports of their encounters.

“It was prolific enough,” Stonehill said, “to really make you wonder how much the Soviets knew.”

AN UNDERGROUND BASE, RUSSIAN STYLE

Among the top secret Russian facilities that Stonehill alludes to in the interview is a location called Kapustin Yar, said to be the most sensitive air base in the country, even exceeding America’s Area 51 for the levels of secrecy that enshroud it. The following information is provided by a site called “Cool Interesting Stuff,” in a section entitled “ZHITKUR Underground Base, Russia’s Area 51.”

Kapustin Yar was created as the site for the development of the Soviet Union’s space program after the end of World War II. It lies over 500 miles south of Moscow and about 60 miles east of Volgograd, the former Stalingrad. It was here that captured V2 rockets and German scientists that created them were set to work with the task of getting into space before the Americans. They were also tasked with designing and testing new aircraft, missiles and other weapons systems.

In 1948, less than a year after the famed Roswell Incident, the base’s radar operators picked up an unidentified object. Simultaneously, a fighter pilot flying near the base saw a silver, cigar-shaped object. After reporting that his eyes were blinded by rays from the UFO, the pilot was ordered to engage with it. There followed a three-minute dogfight, after which a missile brought down the object. Meanwhile, the UFO fired some sort of energy weapon at the plane and both craft crashed to the ground.

William J. Birnes, author, publisher and television personality, speculates that the alien craft fired a particle beam weapon at the Soviet fighter, but a “lucky shot” with the missile disrupted the UFO’s antigravity field, causing it to fall from the sky. Soviet recovery teams hurriedly swept up the debris and transported it to the underground facility at Kapustin Yar. Birnes claimed that MiG pilots were ordered to take any measures necessary to bring down alien ships because Moscow was desperate to gain any advantage over the U.S., whom they believed were making their own leaps and strides by reverse-engineering recovered flying saucers. 

THE AMERICANS GET A LITTLE WORRIED

When the American U2 spy planes managed to photograph the complex at Kapustin Yar, there were already four ballistic missile launch sites, fourteen launch pads, a highly-sophisticated radar tracking facility, three long runways and numerous unidentified areas. There were also strange, geometric patterns on the ground. Many UFO researchers believe that these designs are intended to attract UFOs and are patterned after ancient monuments and cereal glyphs.

Kapustin Yar.

What the reconnaissance craft could not unveil was the underground Zhitkur facility, but Russian Ufologist Anton Anfalov has provided the following description based on a guided tour he claimed to have taken. 

“A quarter of a mile beneath the surface, we were led down dark, dank corridors and tunnels, with numerous chambers containing various types of extraterrestrial craft in various stages of disassembly. There were areas where autopsies of aliens would take place, and other sections where perhaps engines were being reconstructed. Finally, there are huge hangars containing not aircraft but large, cigar-shaped or cylindrical-shaped objects.”

It is said that the advances at Kapustin Yar enabled the Soviets to leap ahead of America in the space race. In 1957, they successfully placed the Sputnik satellite into orbit, followed a month later by sending a dog called Laika to be the first animal in space. In 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first man to orbit the Earth. The first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova, made the journey in 1963. The first man to “walk” in space was Alexei Leonov in 1965. The first rendezvous and docking in space was carried out by Russian cosmonauts as well. Apart from the Apollo moon shots, the Soviet Union was winning the space race until the space shuttle was first launched in 1981.

The new freedoms in Russian made it possible for members of the media to obtain “top secret” footage of supposed UFOs at Kapustin Yar. On June 3, 1960, two alien craft allegedly crashed at Kapustin Yar, creating an expanding fireball that caused explosions in the area for more than an hour. People are seen running from the flames, smoke pouring off of their clothing. One man drops to the ground and doesn’t move. One of the UFOs was said to have destroyed three rockets on their launch pads, while the other took out a fuel depot. After the fires had been extinguished, the remains of the craft were sent to Zhitkur. 

But it remains impossible, based on the footage, to prove the two UFOs caused the conflagration, since all the film shows is a big fire. But the story endures, and Stanton Friedman has said that he heard those same rumors about UFOs destroying Soviet rockets in an act of retaliation.

THE STATUS QUO OF UFO SECRECY CONTINUES

The research is still ongoing at Kapustin Yar, with UFO wreckage being brought to Zhitkur quite regularly, such as a craft said to have crashed in Poland in 1997.

The Soviet Union obviously had a great deal of interest in the subject and seemed prepared to respond with extreme hostility to unidentified craft in their airspace. Was Moscow’s leap into space guided by reverse-engineering alien craft? The evidence would suggest not. Soviet rockets were powered pretty much the same way as the American ones – and that wouldn’t be by antigravity engines from a crashed saucer.

Still, one is forced to wonder what secrets might exist in all these underground facilities, not just in Russia, but all over the world. One must also marvel at the proliferation of facilities like Area 51 in other countries besides the U.S. The creation of these numerous installations as a response to the UFO presence is similar across the board and around the world. Will these hidden monuments to UFOs and government secrecy someday yield up the truth we believers are still seeking?

OUR HOLLOW EARTH — A PLACE BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL?

By Sean Casteel

Timothy Green Beckley’s “Our Hollow Earth: An Inner World Paradise, Or a Gateway to Hell?”

Do heaven and hell actually exist as physical locations? Can one step outside of the boundaries of religious and cultural conditioning that for millennia have told us that the two places exist outside the physical realm as places to be found only in spiritual dimensions that are unreachable by the living?

Timothy Green Beckley and his stable of venerable writers and researchers invite you to consider the possibility that the territories we think of as the afterlife – the dichotomies of heaven and hell – are in fact physical places concealed throughout eternity in the bowels of the Earth. 

This is the theme of Beckley’s latest group project, the book called “Our Hollow Earth: An Inner World Paradise, Or A Gateway To Hell?” Since the book provides excellent arguments to support either case, it is up to the reader to determine which authors’ testimonies are more credible.

Beckley’s introduction pulls no punches when he writes: “Frankly, the text books – the truth according to our ‘experts’ – are all wrong! If you think life exists only on the surface of the planet, you have been listening to the ‘party line’ way too long, for there are those who see the Earth as being multilayered, and that what goes on ‘above’ definitely goes on ‘below’ – and maybe more so to the extreme.”

THE NOTION OF HELL BENEATH US

Richard Shaver wrote about an ancient race of beings that he called the Dero who moved underground eons ago when the surface world became inhospitable for them.

“One case for an Inner Earth hell,” Beckley continues, “is found in the wickedly profound tales of one Richard S. Shaver, who claimed he knew about a race of underground beings he called the Dero. For eons, the Dero had been polluting humankind’s minds with murderous thoughts and were responsible for plagues, ‘natural’ disasters, wars and all manner of evil deeds. They inflicted these woes upon humankind through the use of ancient laser-like ‘stem rays’ shot forth from their cavernous dwellings, hidden out of sight below the very bottoms of our feet.”

According to Beckley, Shaver said there was a real hell and it was located not in some mythical place but down below, right beneath us, toward the center of the earth. Like it or not, fundamentalist “scholars” tell us quite clearly that hell is for real and located inside the earth, making reference to Ephesians 4:9, which says of Jesus: “Now in saying that He ascended, what does it mean but that He also descended into the LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH?” The reports of some who have experienced a Near Death Experience say they were thrown into the fiery lakes of hell and that “this place seems to be UNDERGROUND or WITHIN THE EARTH in some way.”

Shaver’s belief in a literal, physical hell was the result of demonic voices in his head.

“From as far back as I can remember,” Shaver writes, “there were the voices. They weren’t there all the time, but they were there enough that they played an important role in my early childhood development. At first I thought that everyone heard the voices. I thought there was nothing strange about being awakened at night with the hideous screams of someone being torn limb from limb ringing in your ears. I thought it was normal to hear the maniacal laughing of an invisible someone who thought it was a fine joke to see an innocent soul run down by a speeding train. I thought everyone knew that the voices were with us all of the time, watching, waiting, and scheming for our bloody deaths. But I was wrong. It seemed that I was the only one who heard the voices. I learned quickly not to talk about them, lest I be thought a maniac.”

Shaver’s voices gradually faded from his life and became only a distant childhood memory. They returned, however, when he was an adult working at an auto plant in Detroit. He began to hear them through the noise of the machinery, conversing among themselves about gleefully tearing the skin off a woman as she screamed for mercy or causing cars and planes to crash. 

“From as far back as I can remember,” Shaver writes, “there were the voices. I thought there was nothing strange about being awakened at night with the hideous screams of someone being torn limb from limb ringing in your ears.”

He concluded he must be quite insane, quit his job, began to live a hobo life and took to alcohol to try to block the voices out. He found himself confined to a prison or mental hospital – he seems unclear on which – and came to believe the voices came from people living in caves beneath the institution where he was incarcerated, tormenting him and the other prisoners with strange technologies he compared to some kind of x-rays.

Shaver writes: “My problems, I realized, did not stem from some kind of mental impairment. I wasn’t crazy in the traditional sense, even though at times I felt like I was being driven mad by the hateful rays that were being beamed at me by the people below. No, I was sane in an insane world.

“I have often wondered,” he continues, “how many people who have been institutionalized because they were diagnosed as crazy were in fact victims, such as myself, of the damnable rays. Did they themselves think that they were insane because of the voices they heard in their heads and voluntarily committed themselves? Even today I still wonder if most forms of mental illness are not actually insidious attacks from the world below.”

Over time, perhaps as a method of coping with the voices, Shaver began to develop a myth or a narrative to explain them. He writes about the coming of the “Titans,” a humanoid race that migrated from their home planet and settled on Earth long before mankind was created. The Titans created the first civilization on the Earth, a social and scientific utopia that has never been equaled since.

But there came a time when the sun began to flare in dangerous ways and Earth was flooded with world-destroying radiation. The Titans had no choice but to flee, but some of them stubbornly refused to abandon their homes and instead moved underground or beneath the seas. They took their great machines and scientific knowledge with them, in hopes of someday finding a solution to the solar radiation and returning to live on the Earth’s surface.

But even deep within the Earth, the solar radiation continued to affect them. They tried moving deeper into the planet, but to no avail.

“Those who did not die immediately,” Shaver writes, “suffered genetic damage that was passed down from generation to generation. Eventually, this once mighty race was reduced to mutated horrors, retarded in intelligence and social structure. Worse still, these monstrosities still had access to the self-repairing machines of their ancestors. But instead of using them for their intended purposes, they used them to satisfy their sick, twisted desires. These are the demons of ancient myth and folklore.”

They are the masters of a very REAL Hell! 

IS THE CENTER OF THE EARTH TEEMING WITH LIFE?

Of course, stories about various locales inside the Earth are nothing new. Unlike Shaver’s tales of the demonic Dero who inhabit a cavern world, the inhabitants of the actual Hollow Earth, located at the planet’s core, are also said to be peaceful in countenance, but wish to keep their existence a secret for fear that the surface “warmongers” will want to invade.

A few years ago, when Beckley reprinted the long out-of-print edition and expanded upon the original version of “The Smoky God And Other Inner Earth Mysteries,” he knew going in that there isn’t anything new under the sun – even the central sun said to light the interior of our planet!

The story of the Smoky God is dramatic and tells of a fantastic journey by father and son to a place inhabited by gentle giants. In contrast to the rather admittedly demented Richard Shaver, who made no effort to conceal his hearing voices inside his head, voices that drove him nearly insane (he is said to have been locked in an insane asylum for several years), most of the tales of a Hollow Earth are rather benign. As a further example, one need only examine the works of Tibetan mystic T. Lobsang Rampa, who called the paradise located in the Inner Earth “Agharta.” Beckley’s Global Communications publishing house has republished many of Rampa’s books in excellent new editions.

THE DARKNESS OF THE HUMAN ELEMENT

Admiral Richard E. Byrd.

But the story of the Inner Earth does not always involve supernatural entities like demons or highly-evolved, benevolent, heavenly personages. There is also plenty of everyday human evil thrown into the mix. Take the story of Admiral Byrd, for instance, about whom many questions remain.

Admiral Richard E. Byrd is thought of as an iconic American hero. But what was he concealing from the public, and why did he swear to secrecy a handpicked group from among the crews that accompanied him on his polar expeditions?

In 1938, the Nazis asked Byrd to join their expedition to the North Pole, which the admiral quite naturally declined. The Nazis went there without him, seeking to make contact with a hidden race of supermen by finding a doorway into the Hollow Earth that was believed to exist in the icy northern wastelands. Did the Nazis succeed in making that contact? Did they get alien assistance in building their own disc-shaped aircraft?

Investigator Tim Cridland has delved deeply into the death of President Kennedy and the existence of a Hollow Earth.

Ace Fortean advocate Tim Cridland presents not only photographic proof of the existence of massive holes at the North and South Poles, which are usually covered with a thick cloud layer, thus disguising the entrances there, but also explores the close connection between a member of the Byrd family and the assassination of a beloved president. 

The admiral’s cousin, David Harold Byrd, was an oil-rich financier from Texas who funded some of Admiral Byrd’s earlier polar expeditions. By virtue of his wealth, Harold Byrd was part of the inner circle of the rich and powerful in Texas, which included Lyndon Johnson and John Connelly. Did the secret cabal somehow have a hand in the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Was the conspiracy of murder birthed in a Houston hotel room?

In any case, to many in the UFO and conspiracy theory communities, Admiral Richard E. Byrd is not merely some benign fatherly figure smiling at us from the pages of 20th century history. While Byrd is commonly thought of as a national hero and a courageous explorer of the forbidding wastelands of the Polar Regions, those who look a little deeper soon discover a disturbing darkness and subterfuge that entangles the American icon in many a wicked web.

MICAH HANKS ON THE NAZI CONNECTION

From the darkness surrounding Byrd, his cousin and the JFK assassination, we move along to what may be even darker terrain, as described by author and podcaster Micah Hanks.

Ohio State University scientists claim to have located some kind of “gravitational anomaly” located below Wilkes Land, Antarctica.

“It’s one of the most famous conspiracies,” Hanks writes, “associated with the end of the Second World War: that a group of Nazis escaped to Antarctica, where they had a secret base established to aid in the furtherance of their top secret flying saucer development program. Such tales have been the stuff of legends for decades now, and the persistence of rumors like these offer an alternative to popular theories about alien visitors that remain a hallmark of modern UFO lore.”

Hanks refers to a 2006 discovery by Ohio State University scientists who claim to have located some kind of “gravitational anomaly” located below Wilkes Land, Antarctica. It was later speculated in the tabloid press that the anomaly could be the long-sought “secret Nazi UFO base” in question.

There is some legitimacy to this idea, according to Hanks, stemming from the fact that the Nazis did mount an expedition to the South Pole in 1938-39, though there is no proof they attempted to establish a more permanent stronghold there. Ironically, according to Hanks, the idea of Nazi UFOs in Antarctica has less to do with anything the Nazis actually did than with what Admiral Byrd himself said about it.

Hanks quotes from a 1947 interview with Byrd, published in a Chilean newspaper, thusly: “The admiral stated that he didn’t want to frighten anyone unduly but that it was a bitter reality that, in case of a new war, the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds.”

“As one can see,” Hanks continues, “such wording easily lends itself to the idea of a connection between the Nazi UFO mythos and something going on at the South Pole.”

THE HOLLOW EARTH AS CLASSIC LITERATURE

Photo purports to show opening at the North Pole.

Jules Verne’s 1864 novel, “Journey To The Center Of The Earth,” is often credited with being the first book to deal with the concept that the Earth could possibly be hollow. But, in actuality, Verne’s classic tome was written about a hundred years after the release of a book that purports to be a real account of the author’s exploits in the underworld.

As far as is known, Niels Klim’s “Underground Travels,” originally published in Danish as “Nicolai Klimii Iter Subterraneum” (1741), is a purportedly real journey as described by the author, Ludvig Holberg. It is being published here in English by Global Communications without tampering or unneeded editing. The complete title in English is: “NIELS KLIM’S JOURNEY UNDER THE GROUND, BEING A NARRATIVE OF HIS WONDERFUL DESCENT TO THE SUBTERRANEAN LANDS, TOGETHER WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE SENSIBLE ANIMALS AND TREES.

Ludvig Holberg is the most eminent writer among the Danes in the 18th century. University-educated and well-traveled, he wrote treatises on law as well as histories, satires and comedies.

“There are many persons of both sexes in my country who believe in fairies and supernatural beings and who are ready to swear that that they have been conveyed by spirits to hills and mountain caves,” writes Holberg.

The work starts with a foreword that assures the reader that everything in the story is a real account of the title character’s exploits in the Underworld. The story begins in the Norwegian harbor town of Bergen in 1664, after Klim returns from Copenhagen, where he has studied philosophy and theology at the University of Copenhagen and graduated magna cum laude. His curiosity drives him to investigate a strange cave in a mountainside above the town, which sends out regular gusts of warm air. He ends up falling down the hole, and after a while he finds himself floating in free space.

Klim, the hero of the tale, is said to be transported to the world underground, where he meets with some “surprising” adventures. Many strange creatures inhabit this new world. Trees are introduced that have the power of speech and musical instruments discuss questions of philosophy and finance.

It is thought that the hollow Earth is a lush tropical paradise that very likely houses an assortment of animal life and possibly an advanced race of humans.

This introduction is followed by a short section called “Apologetic Preface,” in which descendants of Klim the Great add a prefix to the new edition where they swear to the authenticity of the story and seek to amend the bad reputation with which the publisher has unfairly been burdened by readers who believe the book is all fantasy.

Whether or not one lends total belief to the story told by Holberg and Klim, it is in any case a fascinating tale of adventure, redemption and coming to know one’s true self in a world previously unknown to mortal man.

“Our Hollow Earth” also includes a chapter by Hercules Invictus, a frequent contributor among Beckley’s writers. Hercules writes about the physical heaven and hell as described in Greek mythology. The Rivers of the Underworld, also an element of Greek mythology, are neatly summarized by Deanna Jaxine Stinson. Deanna’s husband, Paul Dale Roberts, recounts the story of a cave in Guatemala reputed to be an entrance to a Hollow World where the UFO occupants are said to reside. Scott Corrales covers similar territory in the wider exploration of Latin American entrances to the Underworld.

Beliefs in and about the Hollow Earth span the centuries and cut across all cultural and metaphysical lines. If you’re new to the subject, “Our Hollow Earth: An Inner World Paradise, Or A Gateway to Hell?” will provide the introductory overview that will start your education along the right path. If you’re a longtime student of the strange, you owe it to yourself to read the contributions from writers of the present time along with the resurrection of Ludvig Holberg’s breezily fascinating 18th century adventure story, which you likely are unaware of.

Just what IS down there? Is there an unseen enemy beneath our feet, threatening to conquer us with mind-blowing wicked technology when they feel the time is right? Or is there some gentle race of Inner Earth inhabitants who guard their secret paradise from us savages here on the surface?  

The complete duality of the Hollow Earth mystery inevitably gives one pause, does it not?

SYNCHRONICITY AND OTHER STRANGE PHENOMENA – INTERVIEW WITH RAYMOND FOWLER

By Sean Casteel

Raymond Fowler

Raymond Fowler is a UFO researcher, abduction experiencer, and an author with several major contributions to the field to his credit. Fowler is best known for his series of books on abductee Betty Andreasson and her family, which began with “The Andreasson Affair” in 1979. The Andreasson series later expanded to include Fowler’s own abduction experiences, experiences that had been hidden from him until he reached middle age and was forced to confront the fact that he too was experiencing the same bizarre visitations that he had been researching in others.

Fowler has often said that whatever his current work in progress is will be his last, but he continues to produce new books nevertheless. His latest offering is called “SynchroFile, Amazing Personal Encounters With Synchronicity And Other Strange Phenomena” (2004, iUniverse, Inc.) and as the title implies, it takes up the task of cataloging and analyzing an overwhelming number of Fowler’s firsthand experiences with what he terms “life-changing” episodes of synchronicity.

But first the basics. Just what is synchronicity?

Carl Jung defined synchronicity as “an a-causal, meaningful coincidence.”

“The psychiatrist Carl Jung actually coined the term ‘synchronicity,” Fowler said, “and he defined it as ‘an a-causal, meaningful coincidence.’ What he meant by that was that synchronicities are highly improbable coincidences that are seemingly without a known cause. The event itself would be very meaningful to the person who experiences synchronicity. He used the terms ‘numinosity’ and ‘individuation’ to describe these changes that synchronistic events make in a person’s life. They can actually be a radical life-changing experience.”

Fowler sketched in some more background on Jung’s development of his synchronicity theory.


Jung used a scarab beetle that appeared unexpectedly to help treat a woman during her psychoanalysis.


“Jung had a patient he was having a lot of difficulty with during her psychoanalysis,” Fowler explained, “because she was unreceptive to this type of thing, the unusual, the supernatural. Apparently, someone had given her a very expensive piece of jewelry, a golden scarab. During one of the sessions, she mentioned this to Jung.

“And at that very point,” Fowler continued, “there was a clicking at the window, which grew louder. Finally, Jung decided to see what it was all about. He looked out and there was a scarab beetle trying to get in. So he opened the window, took the scarab beetle and gave it to the women, saying, ‘Here is the beetle you were talking about.’ And that caused a breakthrough. She experienced this ‘numinosity,’ as he called it, and she was extremely receptive to his analysis after that.”

Fowler said that “numinosity” is the emotional glow or satisfaction that under-girds and confirms the experience of a remarkable synchronism, a feeling he has often experienced himself.

Fowler considers his present interest in synchronicity to be a natural outgrowth of his UFO research.

“I’ve communicated with many abductees,” he said, “and I find that it’s one of the benchmarks of the abduction experience that I don’t think has been dealt with much by other researchers in the past. So in a sense, I haven’t deviated from my usual path. It may not be as prominent in others as it has in my own life, but synchronicity has certainly played a part in the lives of other abductees.

“Before I wrote this book,” Fowler continued, “I would go around asking people how often these kinds of things happened to them—even my own family, who’d had a number of them, but not many. I don’t know for sure why it happens to me. But I got to the point where I decided that I would make a ten-year diary of these experiences and see if I could find any pattern in them. When I looked at them all as a whole, could I see something? Of course, that’s what I did.

“And when I looked at all this stuff, I said, brother, this should make an interesting book. People are interested in this, and I can tie it in with my UFO experiences and the experiences of others and bring in Carl Jung and his views on UFOs. And I can bring in quantum physics and just pile on this material and try to tie a lot of this together. So that’s how ‘SynchroFile’ came to be.”


SynchroFile, Amazing Personal Encounters With Synchronicity And Other Strange Phenomena.

The early chapters of “SynchroFile” are an attempt to compartmentalize and give language to the unearthly experience of synchronicity. Fowler manages to create four distinct categories that at least reach a kind of threshold of getting the subject down to a nuts-and-bolts science.

“The first type,” he said, “are concurrent coincidences. These are coincidences that take place simultaneously. They’re sort of mirror images of one another.”

Fowler told the story of a concurrent coincidence to illustrate what he meant. He had befriended some crows that would gather in his backyard and caw until he gave them some food. One day, Fowler was listening to a headset radio, and as he was placing some dog pellets out for the crows, he heard a local radio talk show host say the words, “I’m putting out a doughnut in the backyard for the crows.”

“Exactly at the same time as I was putting down the pellets for the crows,” Fowler said, his voice still expressing a little wonderment at the precision timing of the coincidence.

The second type of synchronicity, according to Fowler, is something called a “corresponding coincidence,” which is identical to a concurrent coincidence, except that it doesn’t take place simultaneously. It is nearly concurrent, but is separated by a small passage of time.

One example Fowler gave for a corresponding coincidence took place when he was vacationing in England and reading a book called “The Holographic Universe.” Fowler decided to flip on the television to see if he could find anything of interest.

“I had just read about the wave/particle nature of light,” he said. “And here I am. I’m holding the book, and I turn on the TV, and the host was talking about the wave/particle nature of light.”

Converging coincidences are Fowler’s third type of synchronicity. This kind doesn’t reveal itself immediately, but instead takes its own sweet time in making itself manifest at some future point, at which time it can be verified.

As an illustration, Fowler told about an experience he had had while in the Air Force and stationed in England.

“When I was in England,” Fowler recounted, “I used to want to see Margaret, my wife-to-be, who lived in London. I asked a friend of mine, whose name was Jerry Dumas—he was also nicknamed ‘Double-Shift Dumas’ because he’d work a double-shift for you for money, so you could have more time off to visit London. So I spent a lot of money hiring him from time to time so I could get into London and court Margaret.”

Raymond Fowler.

Fowler and Double-Shift Dumas were discharged from the military in the mid-1950s and returned to the U.S., both going their separate ways and losing touch with each other. A few years later, as Fowler was attending church near his parents’ home in Surrey, Maine, an amazing synchronistic event took place.

“The church had a circular drive,” Fowler said, “and I was driving out one way. I noticed a car coming in the other way. I stopped and he stopped. We looked at each other, and there was Double-Shift Dumas! So it was a renewal of an old friendship. In fact, we visited him not too long ago.”

The foregoing coincidences might be dismissed as mere chance and without the deeply felt meaning Fowler described earlier, were it not for the sheer number of them recorded in “SynchroFile.” The continual re-experiencing of one strange synchronism after another has the cumulative effect of making Fowler’s claims about what has been happening to him very hard to dismiss.

And then there are the “counter-coincidences.”

“I’ve dubbed them ‘supernatural’ coincidences,” Fowler said. “This is when you have two events that should naturally coincide but they don’t. They appear to operate outside the boundaries of reality that we normally experience, and appear supernatural to the experiencer.”

As an example, Fowler told the story of an experience he had one Sunday morning after church.

“I went into the foyer,” he said, “and there were a bunch of Brownies, miniature Girl Scouts I guess you’d call them, that were retarded. They had come to the church service to fulfill something in their handbooks, to get a badge. One of the little girls came over to me, looked up at me and puckered her lips, like she wanted me to kiss her. I felt that [kissing her] was inappropriate, so I just smiled at her.

“And then I felt two strong hands, the fingers on my shoulders. They gripped my shoulders very tightly and pushed me gently down to where she could kiss me. My initial thought was that it was probably the scoutmaster who was saying this was okay. So I kissed her, and I turned around to see this guy. The wall was about six inches from me, and there was no one behind me. Really strange.”

Often the occurrence of a counter-coincidence is something Fowler called “helpful” and “protective,” as the following story illustrates.

“I was bike riding in Rockport, Massachusetts,” he said, “and there was a hill. I loved to get up a lot of speed and go down this hill and take a corner at the bottom of the hill. Just as I started down the hill, I got this premonition that there was a truck in a driveway at the bottom of the hill that I couldn’t see and that was going to back up. I was going so fast I couldn’t have stopped anyhow.

“As soon as I went around the corner, I see the truck that I had a premonition about backing out. The driver had a shocked look on his face as he’s backing out and I’m coming right at him. He didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know what to do. But just because I’d been warned, I was able to sort of get off the road on to a lawn area and get around him. But again, I knew that it was going to happen before it happened.”


The way time becomes scrambled in synchronistic experiences, with the past, present and future seeming to manifest themselves simultaneously to the experiencer, causes Fowler to wonder whether the usual perception of human free will is even operative.

Moments of protective synchronicity like the bike example above are fairly commonplace for Fowler. But the way time becomes scrambled in synchronistic experiences, with the past, present and future seeming to manifest themselves simultaneously to the experiencer, causes Fowler to wonder whether the usual perception of human free will is even operative.

For instance, Fowler tells the story of his father’s encounter with retro-cognition, the sudden transporting of the experiencer literally and physically into past events.

“My father was driving down a road in Maine,” Fowler recalled. “A beautiful day, sunshine, the weather report saying it was going to be a great day. All of a sudden, he found himself in a tremendous thunder and lightning storm—wind and lightning and an old-fashioned car careening down the road in front of him with visibly panicking people in it. Then suddenly there was sunshine and blue skies again and no water at all on the car or on the road. He told my uncle, and my uncle told him that that had also happened to a few other people and that there had been a terrible accident on that road at that particular place. So Dad in essence was actually seeing the past occurring in the present.”

Meanwhile, there are also phenomena like precognitive dreams and the timeless realm encountered during UFO abductions and Near-Death-Experiences.

“Now all of these phenomena have really large implications,” Fowler said, “because there have also been reliable people experiencing future events that are occurring in the present. If such experiences correspond with reality, I have to conclude that you have to come up with some kind of theory to explain all of this.

“Let’s compare it to a completed phonograph record that’s always expanding. Our human mind is like the needle on that phonograph record touching just one section of one groove. Normally our mind or that needle only experiences that one tiny point on one of the grooves on that record. In doing so, it experiences an illusion of what is called ‘linear time,’ and in reality only experiences the present where the needle touches. We’re never experiencing anything except the present.”

The notion of time Fowler is describing was set in motion with the Big Bang, he says, at which point everything was determined, even the exercise of any free will we may have had, at that point of ultimate beginning.


Fowler speculates that the Big Bang most likely created many realities that exist simultaneously with ours and occupy the same space. They would be vibrating at different frequencies from ours, making them completely indiscernible to us normally.

“That would mean that what we call the past, present and future occurred at the Big Bang and that all is really ‘now.’ So what we call the past is occurring now, what we call the future is occurring now, and reality is only in the now.”

There are also other realities that coexist alongside our limited human “now.”

“The Big Bang most likely created many realities that exist simultaneously with ours and occupy the same space,” Fowler continued. “They would be vibrating at different frequencies from ours, making them completely indiscernible to us normally. An analogy would be radio or TV or other electromagnetic frequencies vibrating at different rates but occupying the same space.”

The soul or essence of the individual is also a participant in this complicated working model of space and time.

“I believe that some of what we call paranormal phenomena often occur when our essence, our soul or whatever you want to call it, leaves the body during sleep—or even while we’re awake, which we wouldn’t be conscious of—and is able to interface with what we call the past and the future, and then communicates these experiences back to our conscious mind in the form of precognitive dreams.”

Fowler discussed his brother, who often has precognitive dreams and finds them hard to accept.

“He feels that he has free will,” Fowler explained, “and that he doesn’t want to have his whole life determined. I believe that free will is part of it, because everything happened at once at the Big Bang, including our free will being exercised, but we don’t realize that now because we’re just at a tiny point in all of reality that’s already there and is predetermined. We’ve already exercised our free will and we just aren’t aware that we have done it. Very, very confusing, and probably very hard to put down in an article, but there it is.”


Fowler says that for some unknown reason, coincidences or synchronicities appear to be connected to his involvement with UFO experiences and his research.

Finally the question becomes, why Raymond Fowler? Why is whatever force that is behind the continual synchronicities Fowler experiences paying such painstaking attention to detail, even to the extent of seeming to “micromanage” Fowler’s life and the lives of so many others?

“I can only answer for myself, of course,” Fowler said. “For some unknown reason, these coincidences or synchronicities appear to be connected to my involvement with UFO experiences and my research. I’ve always had these kinds of things happen, and they have always picked up in intensity when I’m doing UFO investigations and during the times I’m researching and writing a book. I mean, they just pile on top of me, and they happen so much that I haven’t even been able to record them all. Sometimes you have them and forget about them. But they’re there. Looking back, in retrospect, they’ve provided guidance and they’ve provided protection, and essentially an education, through my experiencing them.

“Synchronistic happenings in my life,” Fowler said, “leave a strong impression that I’m part of a greater one, unknown reality that controls all things. To me, these uncanny happenings are intrusions from a mega-reality into my particular reality through some kind of para-physical osmosis. These various forms of synchronicity have led me down paths that I never would have imagined treading in my younger days, especially in my early days of UFO investigations. So looking back at it all, and forward, probably, too, it seems as if I’m being schooled by something ‘other.’ We’ll call it something ‘other.’ I get this feeling, this ‘numinosity’ as Carl Jung called it, that I must be doing exactly what someone wants me to do. It’s sort of a comfort blanket when you see this happening. There’s something about it that says, ‘Oh, yeah, everything’s okay.’”

SAUCERS AND THE SEXY PORN STAR – AND A FEW OTHER SALACIOUS TALES

By Timothy Green Beckley

alien_sex_21I’ve never tried to conceal the fact that I worked in the adult entertainment industry. No, I wasn’t a porn star though I did have a cameo role in a film shot in San Francisco and starring Candy Samples. Candy was at one time married to soft porn producer Russ – “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls” – Meyer. Although Meyer has been deceased for many years, his films are still available with the income going to his estate.

raven

Raven de la Croix

Most notable is the fact that our friend and Sedona, Arizona, UFO abductee – the very talented actress, dancer and artist Raven de la Croix – can be seen strutting her feminine wiles in Russ’s box office hit “Raven,” doubtlessly named after Ms. de la Crois in honor of her charm and beauty. Later on, Raven describes in these pages her sexual encounter and abduction at the hands of the aliens.

At one point back in the mid-1970s I was the movie critic for Hustler Magazine (Larry Flynt was too creepy for my taste) and a couple of years later Editor-in-Chief of Adult Cinema Review. So, whenever an adult film starlet was in town, chances are I would hook up with them to do an interview or attend a screening of their most recent XXX flick. I can’t say a lot of them had UFO experiences, but a few did, and others were mildly interested in the subject enough so that we would hang out at Bernard’s, a bar just off the Minnesota Strip, a section of the Times Square “red light district” that catered to some rather hot-blooded ladies who worked the neighborhood peep shows and topless bars. 42nd Street was kind of raw in those days, and a real draw for out- of-towners – way out- of-towners in our case, I would say.

marilyn chambers

Model-turned-actress Marilyn Chambers had a very provocative abduction experience.

“Behind the Green Door” star Marilyn Chambers was one of the better known adult film actresses. In fact, she had been at one point an aspiring model whose face graced the box cover of Ivory Snow detergent. She was also a legit singer and a dancer, though she would still shake her booty at some of the Manhattan strip clubs where she would attract a sizeable crowd and make an evening very profitable, both through a cut of the door and tips that her fans lavished upon her (they would throw the fives and tens in a bucket as she paraded around the room).

To say the least, it was all good in the hood – if that was the kind of excitement you were seeking.

I should explain that Chambers was, when I met her, married to a Svengali-type guy by the name of Chuck Traynor, who was previously hitched to “Deep Throat’s” Linda Lovelance. Lovelace claimed that Traynor had forced her into adult films by holding a gun to her head and beating her to have sex with other men. I can’t comment on these allegations. I did have lunch with Traynor, who came off as being the ultimate sleaze, and he was disliked by most adult film industry people (cast and crew). But that has nothing to do with our UFO tale.

tattler

The National Tattler.

I wrote up Marilyn’s UFO encounter for the National Tattler, a weekly tabloid that actually printed a lot of stories on the paranormal and were fairly accurate in their reporting, especially when I was one of their stringers and had a UFO event to tell. They were more likely to take a story than the Enquirer, which had a higher, tougher criterion when it came to accepting freelance articles. Marilyn, as I recall, was stopped at a red light when a UFO parked itself overhead and followed her, keeping pace with her car for a couple of miles. If you can find the account in an old issue of Saga’s UFO Report, which I have since lost, I believe there was an illustration that she did for me of the ship which I can’t find the original of either.

What I promised not to reveal at the time was Marilyn’s sexual abduction experience, which she was afraid of telling for fear it might harm her career. She had released an album of disco music and wanted to go “legit” and thought this might possibly damage her reputation (fat chance!). Don’t make me laugh, but I did keep my promise to keep her experience to myself. But now, since MC passed away many years ago, I can tell all about what transpired to the best of my recollection.

The night of her UFO sighting, which I think might have taken place in Detroit or Chicago – but don’t hold me to that – Marilyn had gone to bed around midnight. There was a storm, she said, brewing outside, but she had kept the window ajar to take in a bit of fresh air. Shortly thereafter, a bright light shone into her bedroom which she initially thought was someone attempting to turn around in the street.

Suddenly, Marilyn says her bed was surrounded by three or four shadowy figures who reached out, beginning to touch and caress her. Chambers admitted to me that since she was in real life easy to excite sexually so she thought perhaps she was simply experiencing a nocturnal orgasm in a dream state. But the hands felt all too real.

“They certainly were not what you would call tender caresses,” she elaborated.

What did the figures and hands look like?

“Well, they were a bit longer and bonier than those of a human,” Marilyn answered, “and they had large heads and a broad torso, but they weren’t monstrous or anything.”

Like many other abductees, Chambers said she was pulled through the wall and found herself inside some sort of tiny compartment somewhere outside of her apartment. She says the beings proceeded to have their way with her.

“I can’t say it wasn’t pleasurable. They invited me to have a drink with them and this settled my nerves and made me more relaxed.”

Unlike some of the abductees who feel they are being used in some form of experimentation, Marilyn did not get that impression.

“They seemed to find it very pleasurable,” she recalled. “I wasn’t forced, but neither was I a completely willing partner!”

Frankly, I can’t recall how or under what circumstances Chambers returned home. It’s as much a blur to me now as it was to her at the time of her experience. Figuring I wouldn’t have to document her story, I probably didn’t take very good notes. I remember conducting the interview and the background noise was so overwhelming when I tried to transcribe the tape I probably never completed the job.

If there are any other adult performers out there who have had UFO experiences drop me a line. We’ll keep your identity to ourselves, or blab it to the world, whatever whets your “noodle” (hum, hum).

Most followers of the UFO mystery will know of what and whom I speak when I say that there are presumably Nordic-type “Space Brothers” living on the Earth alongside us mere mortals, who, while from another place and time, manage to reside here without being detected. Some may not even realize that they have come from the stars, either literally or having reincarnated into an earthly body to make the journey.

To my way of thinking, the Nordics are your dyed-in-the-wool Aryans. Blonde hair. Blue eyes. Six feet tall. They give the impression that they have just gotten off the set of a daytime TV soap opera, perfect teeth, long tapered fingers and a sleek and slender waste line. From what we hear, the Nordic space women are a sight to behold in their form-fitting jump suits. (We’re told no bras are worn on their home planets.) The early contactees George Adamski, Truman Bethrum and Orfeo Angelucci spoke of these visually stunning alien women in glowing terms, but they never did let us peek behind the veil to see what they might have done to support these peace-loving confederation travelers, especially when a close contact was made in the moonlight of the Mojave Desert.

Indeed, we would like to know just how close were these close encounters?

Truman Bethrum’s human wife did identify Aura Raines as the cause of their breakup in divorce papers that she filed in California, and one source close to the contactee once said: “Truman told me that Aura was a sight to behold, even for the most discriminating earthmen’s eye.”

HOWARD MENGER WAS DIFFERENT!

Since this is not a book about the Space Brothers or about UFOs in particular, but one about the sexcapades of our off-world visitors, we promise to stay more or less on topic.

I knew Howard Menger fairly well. He and his wife Connie were good eggs, as far as I was concerned, despite what some skeptical folks might have said about their supposed adventures in space warp speed. Even after they retired from their sign painting business, they would make the long haul from Vero Beach, Florida, to Phoenix or San Diego to speak at my various UFO expos, even going so far as to drag, in a mini-trailer behind their auto, the “XR-1,” a homespun saucer-shaped craft that Howard had built and which he said would eventually fly, or had flown once before, using a series of rotating magnets as its principle means of propulsion. Howard had gotten the plans for this device from his outer space friends, who looked remarkably human and were often seen landing and coming out of your typical saucer-shaped craft that would park in the apple orchard behind his High Bridge, New Jersey home.

In the mid-1950s Howard held an outdoor convention on his property that was well-attended, mainly due to the support given by Long John Nebel, the dean of all night talk show hosts, who was the originator of the paranormal/UFO broadcast type program, long before Art Bell took over the dusk to dawn airwaves (and so recognized). Photographed seated and taking notes on Menger’s grounds was said to be the spaceman, Val Thor, who later was to befriend the late minister Rev. Frank E. Stranges. Stranges had met Valiant inside the Pentagon, where he had stayed with our government’s knowledge for three years. In general, it can be said that from time to time, some very strange “people” were showing up on Menger’s estate. No one who hung around his place on a regular basis hoping for a spacey contact of their own could possibly deny this fact.

As Howard told the story later in life, the sun was shining brightly on that day in 1932 – a day that was to change Menger’s life forever and shape the belief patterns of many who were to be drawn in the years ahead to his uniquely divergent sense of reality.

“There, sitting on a rock by the brook,” Menger poetically reminisced in his memoirs, “The High Bridge Incident,” “was the most exquisite woman my young eyes had ever beheld! The warm sunlight caught the highlights of her long golden hair as it cascaded around her face and shoulders. The curves of her lovely body were delicately contoured . . . revealed through the translucent material of clothing which reminded me of the habit that skiers wear.” To say that the young Howard Menger was more “unworldly wise” than his age would seem to allow is no minor point when relating his life’s most impacting moments.

Howard and Connie Menger

Howard continues by explaining that the lady on the rock “turned her head in my direction. Even though very young, the feeling I received was unmistakable. It was a tremendous surge of warmth, love and physical attraction, which emanated from her to me. Suddenly, all my anxiety was gone, and I approached her as one would an old friend or loved one. She seemed to radiate and glow as she sat on the rock, and I wondered if it were due to the unusual quality of the material she wore, which had a shimmering, shiny texture not unlike but far surpassing the sheen of nylon. The clothing had no buttons, fasteners or seams I could discern. She wore no makeup, which would have been unnecessary to the fragile transparency of her camellia-like skin with pinkish undertones. Her eyes, opalescent discs of gold, turned their smiling affection on me with a tranquil luminescence.”

This initial contact with a minor under the age of ten did seem overly amorous for such a young boy – we hesitate to think that it went any further than just a brief flirtation and did not involve lewd and lascivious behavior with a minor.

In 1946, when he returned home from the war, Menger met the stone girl again, but this time she had come out of a UFO clad in a gray-blue plaid outfit that outlined her perfect body. After informing her about her mission on Earth – spreading love and peace among men – the girl kissed Menger. He asked if they would see each other again, getting a negative answer. But she promised that one day he would meet her sister, a Venusian incarnated on Earth. “She will work with you and be with you for a lifetime. You will recognize her as soon as you see her,” the saucerian gal confirmed.

The ironic punchline is that years later Howard DID come face-to-face with this spacewoman’s identical twin. Initially, Howard thought that an attractive blonde named Connie Weber, who showed up at one of his conclaves, was the same woman he had met as a youth on the back forty. Eventually, he surmised that she was the reincarnation of a spacewoman that he had known in a biblical sense in a previous life on Venus. Howard divorced his first wife and married the beautiful blonde interplanetary lookalike. They had two wonderful girls and did work together for many decades before Howard passed into the Venusian sunset. (Connie died a few years ago at the age of 95.)

THE MUNDANE AND THE EXTRAORDINARY

But to get on with our story.

At one point in my publishing career I was a contributing editor for a number of Penthouse-style forum magazines. These were the digest-sized publications that printed actual letters from readers describing their sexual experiences, anywhere from telling how they lost their virginity to how they got away with cheating on their mate. Penthouse Forum was the most “prestigious” of these publications and, being attached to a magazine that sold over two million copies at one point, it had quite a run and could boast of a couple hundred thousand readers at its peak.

There were numerous imitators and these are the publishers I worked for. My job was to rewrite the letters to make them readable. Let me tell you, that was often a hard task. Forgetting the bad punctuation and the terrible spelling, just to read some of these letters and format them so they could be sent to the typesetter was a daunting undertaking. One such digest was Velvet Touch, the offspring of the glossy Velvet, which made a gallant attempt to produce a publication that was “hot enough” to satisfy the most jaded sexual tastes of its largely male audience, yet tried, at the same time, to appear mainstream enough so that women would also purchase the product. If the publishers were lucky enough, they would get the news dealer to place Velvet Touch as close to Cosmopolitan as possible, hoping to attract a bit of a crossover audience.ForcedIntoSexAboardAFS-1967

The publisher at one point was kind enough to place an ad of mine on the magazine’s back cover (which he was unable to sell anyway). In bold type, it screamed – “FORCED INTO SEX ONBOARD A FLYING SAUCER.” I can’t even remember what I was trying to sell!

As it turned out, most of the names on the letters I edited showed that Velvet Touch never really reached far into the women’s market. And while nobody got paid for writing the letters the magazine published, we did have a couple of contributors who seemed to maintain an active sex life and were willing to air their more mundane sexcapades in our pages – more mundane, that is, when compared to the adventures with the sexterrestrials we now find ourselves confronted by.

ROMANTIC RENDEZVOUS ALIEN-STYLE

Reviewing the details of Howard Menger’s romantic interlude with the woman on the rock, this tale positions itself, if anywhere, in the category of a tender alien relationship, which you might think actually belongs as part of the relatively new publishing genre known as “Alien Human Romance,” but we have proof that the New Jersey contactee beat these would-be modern alien romance novelists by several decades. A quick trip to Amazon.com will find such pandering titles you can place in your internet shopping cart as “Alien Pregnant Bride,” “His Alien Virgin,” “Alien Savior” (from the cover, this book looks like it takes a bi-sexual approach to ET lovemaking), and “Alien Sex 101,” which I would have every reason to believe is too much of a primer for our more advanced sexterrestrial hip readers.

Note: My personal “alien out of sexual control” award has to go to “His Human Slave,” described thusly: “COLLARED AND CAGED, HIS HUMAN SLAVE AWAITS HER TRAINING . . . She’s a human, born into slavery . . . Prince Zander bought and paid for her, which means she’s his now. His to use. His to impregnate. Because according to a gene-matching program, she’ll produce the best offspring.”

And you thought alien anal probes couldn’t easily be outdone in this paranormal universe where almost anything seems plausible?

By the way, on a cosmic scale of one to ten, I am told you merely have to look to your average star voyagers from the Pleiades to find the most beautiful spacewomen around (sorry you weren’t so lucky, Mr. Boas).

THE WITCHES AND THE EAGER STUDENT OF THE OCCULT

During the early 1970s, I had organized one of the first metaphysical schools in the country. We had some really talented psychics and occultists teaching a variety of classes on anything from astral projection to reading the tarot cards. People were passing through our doors all day and night to sign up for classes.

I guess I got to meet a lot of unusual people in those days. Like my two female witch friends, Walli Elmlark and the very buxom Witch Hazel (she really had her name changed, she showed me her driver’s license). Walli was the White Witch of New York who wrote a column for the rock magazine Circus. She introduced me to David Bowie and invited King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp to join us in a sky-watch. Hazel, on the other hand, wore black clothing, rode a motorcycle, had a pilot’s license and once or twice sketched out scenes from her past life where she had been tortured – half naked – at the hands of some ruthless male priests. Completely bizarro. But when the pot smoke drifted away, everyone seemed quite normal.

Tim Beckley’s favorite witches: the voluptuous Witch Hazel and the White Witch of New York, Walli Elmlark.

One of the occult school patrons by the name of Ruthie signed up for a couple of classes, and, since she was spending a few hours a week hanging around, we would chit-chat from time to time. She was a rather stocky brunette with curves in all the right places. Hey, I was young and single and had an eye for the ladies, though I made it a policy not to ask out those who entered through our doors who were presumably coming for spiritual guidance.

Ruthie was the type of person who had no problem discussing whatever was on her mind.

One day she told me something was troubling her and, as I was the chief guru, she wanted my opinion.

She told me before signing up for classes at our school that she had attended the functions of a group uptown who had been a lot “darker” in their approach to the occult. Not that we were what you would call “New Age Bliss Bunnies,” but most of our group had aspirations to do good with the paranormal talents they possessed and would even sometimes turn down those who openly said they were seeking psychic revenge on someone who they felt had wronged them or tried to steal their lover away. Things can get rather messy on the astral plane and you don’t know who – or what – you might attract, so “better to leave well enough alone” seemed to be the order of the day at the New York School of Occult Arts and Sciences.

“I met this rather handsome guy over at the other group who was channeling UFO entities on a regular basis,” Ruthie said. “I liked the messages he was receiving. In fact, he looked like one of the messengers from space he called Ashtar.”

As we’ve mentioned, these Nordic, humanoid, Ultra-Terrestrials are typically male, six to seven feet tall with long blond hair, blue eyes and skin tones ranging from fair to tanned, perhaps a bit on the feminine or androgynous side, sort of like a real Ziggy Stardust. They were mostly benevolent and most often possessed telepathic powers that would enable them to read the minds of humans.

Ruthie told me she liked being in the company of this individual since he seemed so “spiritually aware” – and she admitted she was digging on his good looks. After a channeling session at “the other” psychic facility across town, the gentleman (I can’t remember what she told me his actual name was, but let’s just call him “Paul”) asked Ruthie to come back to his apartment to continue the evening’s discussion on UFOs and the arrival of the space brotherhood, which he predicted would happen within a few years (a lot of us thought this might be the case in the early to mid-1970s).

Paul went on weaving the philosophical beliefs of the space brethren into the conversation as they sat sharing the same couch. As the night went on a “warm feeling” overtook the girl, who months later was telling me of her night on the town with a space channeler. She said she didn’t feel shy and that she was beginning to get turned on to him being so close. She was not about to refuse his advances if he tried to make one.
But something more “inappropriate” transpired.

“Before I knew it – and without warning me – Paul slipped into a trance state and began to channel some unearthly entity. But it wasn’t the gentle Ashtar, it was someone who spoke in a more powerful, more uneven, authoritarian voice. He said most earthlings were weak and could not stand up for themselves if an attack from space were to take place. In particular, he said the women of our species were easily manipulated and with that he put his hands on me and began to caress my body harshly but in a masterful way.”

Luckily, there was no one around us as she related her story or I might have been the one to have become embarrassed over the conversation. Ruthie insisted she had little to say about the outcome of the awkward situation she found herself in. “It felt as if I had been partially hypnotized or was under the channeler/spaceman’s mental control. I could not pull away from him as he pressed me to the couch and had his way.”

Ruthie insists the sex was “sort of consensual,” in that she was not drugged nor was she physically forced ultimately to do anything against her will. In fact, she admitted to me that it was the best orgasm she ever had and if offered a ride onboard one of their craft she would not hesitate to take a trip to their home planet. I think she said this half in jest, but maybe she wasn’t kidding, a possibility I considered when I had a chance to think about our conversation later.

Ruthie says she was really “feeling the vibes” from the channeler, but once he came out of the state of mind he was in he didn’t seem to show a great deal of interest in carrying on with the conversation which they then finished up rather quickly.

“I attended a few more of his channeling sessions, and Paul was very civil to me after that night on the couch,” Ruthie remembered. “But the group we were involved in dissolved eventually and I didn’t see him around after that.”

Ruthie wanted to know if she should feel guilty about experiencing a great deal of sexual satisfaction with the entity who almost seemed to possess the body of the UFO channel. I told her it probably wasn’t a good idea to be put into such a compromising position as one might never know until it’s too late what they had gotten themselves into. It could be that the entity was demonic, even if the channeler was not a black magician like Aleister Crowley.

I guess she took my advice as she never brought up the subject again.

I found that such cases as this were not that unusual; though it’s not something most workshop attendees felt comfortable in talking about – only at Tim Beckley’s NY Occult Center it seemed to be OK!

RESHAPING REALITY WHILE LIVING IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

Authors Philip K. Dick And Tim Beckley Say Synchronicities Are Key To Turning The Matrix Inside Out

By Sean Casteel

*** Everything we think we know about the world and the universe in which we live, whatever we have been led to believe concerning the course of human history, could very well be completely wrong and misinformed. There is a growing belief that some unseen – some unknown – intelligence or force may assist, or, perhaps, hamper our daily existence and take away our free will.

*** Sci-Fi writer Philip K. Dick’s gift to mankind was his ability to show us alternate realities that may or may not be parallel to our own. Where did his insight come from? Who was the muse who helped Dick lead us to ways of seeing other worlds? Dick said a kind of supernatural force entered his life and granted him the ability to live in two or more realities simultaneously.

*** It was Dick who first proposed the idea that what we call reality is really a computer simulation. As John Lennon wrote in “Strawberry Fields,” “Nothing is real.” The movie franchise, “The Matrix,” is based on Dick’s ideas, though he never received any official credit for his concept from the film’s producers.

*** Publisher and author Timothy Green Beckley has been experiencing synchronicity since childhood. Read his memoirs of meaningful synchronicities, both happy and sad, and his belief that we are all just prisoners enclosed in the matrix Dick posited.

*** If we accept the existence of the matrix, does that mean we can also escape it? Can we exert free will in spite of the unknowably complex nature of the machinery that generates our reality? Read “The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick and the Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley” and come to your own understanding.

Philip K. Dick and the cover of his book “VALIS,” which was inspired by his contact experience with a stranger who appeared on his doorstep, a crucial moment that opened his eyes to the true nature of reality.

Philip K. Dick remains one of the most revered writers in the history of the science fiction genre. His books and stories have been translated to the big screen many times, in such mega-hits as “Total Recall,” “Blade Runner,” and “The Adjustment Bureau.” Hipster director Richard Linklater did an animated version of “A Scanner Darkly” in 2006, and, as of this writing in 2017, Amazon is streaming its take on “The Man in the High Castle,” in all of its postwar topsy-turvy glory, as it posits an alternate history in which the Axis powers actually won the Second World War.

Dick is also said to have pioneered the concept behind the hit movie franchise “The Matrix.” Although never officially credited by the filmmakers, it was Dick who first conjectured that what we think of as everyday reality, the reality where you knock on a table and feel it in your knuckles, is not reality at all. Instead, we live in a computer simulation of reality where the unseen puppet masters can bend us to their will at any time. This theory, this concept, has grown in popularity in UFO and paranormal circles, due in large part to statements and research from the likes of Charles Fort (who thought we were like movable pieces on a giant chest board), UFO researcher Dr. Jacques Vallee and seminal paranormal writer John A. Keel.

The programmers/overlords “playfully” make themselves known with moments of synchronicity, with meaningful coincidences that cannot possibly have happened by mere chance. Since our lives in the matrix are all we know, it is difficult to imagine escaping from the predestined existence that has been meted out to us.

GIRDING UP HIS LOINS TO MAKE WAR ON ‘REALITY’

PHILIP K DICK COVERBut Timothy Green Beckley doesn’t quite agree with that dismal, hopeless perspective. Beckley believes, as perhaps a prisoner of war might, that it is his duty to at least try to set himself free from the arbitrary control of the program’s designers. If we can imagine freedom from the matrix, does the mere act of imagining make it possible?

Such issues are dealt with, along with many others, in the recently published “The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick and the Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley.” The title is rather long, as is the book itself, at nearly 450 pages. It is well-documented for a book on such an elusive subject and illustrated from cover to cover. Despite its length, it is written in an easy to comprehend, conversational style, with only minor references to more intellectually dense and complex figures, such as Carl Jung, whose concepts on synchronicity even his most ardent students agree can sometimes be difficult to follow.

The new book opens with an introduction by the late Dick’s widow, Tessa Dick.

Tessa-and-Philip-K.-Dick philip k dick

Tessa and Philip K. Dick.

“Tim Beckley has a firm handle on the nature of the strange incidents,” Tessa writes, “that occurred in the life of my husband, Philip K. Dick. Whereas many writers have chosen the easy way out, offering explanations ranging from epilepsy to drug abuse, Beckley has dug deep into the story of Phil’s life and unearthed evidence that such things really do happen to many people.”

According to Tessa, her late husband often questioned his own sanity, a form of self-doubt, which, for those who experience synchronicity and the paranormal, seems to come with the territory.

“He told stories for a living,” Tessa writes, “and he told stories for fun. He took the little anomalies of our world and spun them into alternative realities. He also warned us of the police state in which we live. The Nazis won World War II, and the Empire never ended. We must wake up and see the world as it is, not as the media present it to us. Behind the propaganda, this world is all about control.”

A LIFE-CHANGING KNOCK ON THE DOOR

crumb

Page from “The Religious Experience of Philip K. Dick” by R. Crumb.

The “strange incidents” that Tessa mentions above include one that I write about in the “The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick.”

“The visionary mysticism that would come to dominate Philip K. Dick’s final years began in 1974, with a visit from the local drugstore. It is a pivotal moment in Dick’s personal history and has been much written about and analyzed after the fact.”

Dick had recently been to see the dentist about an impacted wisdom tooth. The procedure included a dose of sodium pentothal. Next, a young woman delivered a bottle of Darvon tablets to Dick at his apartment in Fullerton, California. She was wearing a necklace with a pendant of a golden fish, an ancient Christian symbol that had been adopted by the Jesus counterculture movement of the late 1960s.

The fish pendant began to emit a golden ray of light and Dick suddenly experienced what is called “anamnesis,” the recollection of the entire sum of knowledge. It is also called “intellectual intuition,” the direct perception by the mind of a metaphysical reality behind the screens of appearance. Dick had seen the ultimate nature of what he called “true reality.”

In the following days and weeks, Dick would see psychedelic visions with phantasmagorical light shows. He also heard “voices’ and had prophetic dreams. These phenomena would continue until his death eight years later at the age of 53.

After the 1974 experience with the pendant and his sudden awakening, Dick dedicated the rest of his life to understanding what it all meant. Dick wrote a lengthy, 8,000 page analysis of the events called “Exegesis,” what he called “an attempt to understand my own understanding.”

That understanding would lead Dick to practice a form of Christianity called Gnosticism, which New York Times columnist Simon Critchley, in writing about Dick’s conversion, called “the worship of an alien God by those alienated from the world.”

Jung society of Utah philip k dick

PKD often speculated that we all could be living in a “simulated reality.”

Dick believed that he, along with the rest of us, were all living simultaneously in the present day as well as the time of the first Christians in Rome. The political and economic structure of our modern world is really the BIP, or Black Iron Prison, which is opposed to the spiritual redemption offered by the PTG, or Palm Tree Garden. This is again a belief heavily influenced by the Gnostics, many of whom held that the physical, material world is really the creation of the God of Evil and that we await salvation from an “alien” God, a true “extraterrestrial,” not bound up in the wickedness and oppression on our planet’s surface.

At one point, Dick’s voices and visions drove him to attempt suicide and he was placed in a mental hospital.

“When I believe, I am crazy,” he wrote. “When I don’t believe, I suffer psychotic depression.”

But elsewhere Dick says more optimistically, “I experienced an invasion of my mind by a transcendentally rational mind, as if I had been insane all my life and suddenly I had become sane.”

There is, of course, the tritely familiar expression that there is a fine line between genius and insanity. Philosophers have also argued that there is a fine line between madness and genuine religious experience. Could Dick’s “alien God” truly free us from the Matrix? Did Dick mark a path to freedom that we might one day follow?

THE STRANGE UPS AND DOWNS OF SYNCHRONICITY

Tim Beckley with hosts of Out And About LA in front of Intregratron

Tim Beckley with the hosts of the Los Angeles radio program “Out And About” standing in front of the mysterious dome known as the Integratron Machine. The plans for the device were given to inventor and pilot George Van Tassel by beings from an alternate reality. The device, though never completed, is said to have been constructed in the desert as a sort of “time machine.”

The second part of the new book’s title is “The Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley,” which Beckley’s chapters deliver on big time.

As a memoirist of meaningful coincidence, Beckley has few, if any equals. His experiences with synchronicity began in his childhood and continue to the present day. His life is saturated with moments that he believes force him to acknowledge the invisible maker of all things in the matrix.

Sometimes the stories are lighthearted, like the time Beckley was working for a porn magazine to make ends meet and got the idea to hold a contest in which the prize was a porn star’s panties. Of the two hundred or so entries received, the winner turned out to be a New York City cab driver. The cabbie visited the magazine’s office in Times Square and was photographed receiving his prize, after which the hack left for home with his newfound treasure.

“Never figured I would have the opportunity to run into him again,” Beckley writes. “Why would I?”

Four years later, Beckley was out roaming the city rather late at night when he heard a horn honk and a yellow vehicle pulled over to the curb in front of him. It was a taxi, driven by the same man who had won the star’s panties.

“With a beaming smile,” Beckley writes, “he points to the rearview mirror and there, hanging where all his out-of-town passengers can see, are the porn star’s most intimate apparel. She was really touched when I told her about my meeting up with the lucky grand prize winner. I guess you can say that some synchronicities are more personal than others. Sometimes the matrix does share an intimate – or intimidating – moment with us all.”

SYNCHRONIZED WITH TRAGEDY

Perhaps one of the “intimidating” moments of Beckley’s experiences with the matrix would involve Philip K. Dick and an Episcopal clergyman named Bishop James Pike. In 1966, Pike performed the wedding ceremony for Dick and his fourth wife, Nancy Herbert.

philip k dick and bishop pike

Bishop James Pike and Philip K. Dick.

Pike was himself an anomaly. He was under fire from the church for what were considered at the time to be “radical” views, like the ordination of women to the priesthood, racial desegregation and the acceptance of LGBT people within the mainline churches. Pike also had controversial opinions on the Virgin Birth, the Second Coming of Jesus and other basic church doctrines.

A few months before the bishop officiated at Dick’s wedding, Pike’s son committed suicide. The young man had been residing in a single room in a hotel off Broadway in midtown Manhattan. He had been depressed, using drugs, and just couldn’t take it anymore.

A friend of Beckley’s, a woman named Sandra, whose family lived in an apartment next door to young Pike’s, said the condition of the room had been “messy” in the aftermath of Pike’s use of a handgun to take his own life.

“But I didn’t realize,” Beckley said, “until I spoke to Sandra recently, that I had slept in the very room where the tragic event had taken place.”

The room had eventually been merged with the apartment rented by Sandra’s family and Beckley had stayed there many times. But no one had ever told him about the history of Room 429.

There is a lot more to the story Beckley has to tell about Dick, Pike and Pike’s son, events that would come to involve a well-known spiritualist and medium named the Reverend Arthur Ford as well as Diamond Jim Brady, the dapper man-about-town of the early 20th century. One should read the new book for the full story, as Beckley recounts a chain of events that is both amazing and nightmarish but which cannot be briefly summed up in the space allotted for this article.

TRANSCENDING THE MATRIX

arnold philip total recall

In the more than three decades since his death, Philip K. Dick is now thought of as one of the most influential of all modern day sci-fi novelists and short story authors. “Total Recall,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, is based upon one of his award-winning titles.

“The Matrix Control System of Philip K. Dick and the Paranormal Synchronicities of Timothy Green Beckley” also offers contributions from an excellent cast of paranormal writers and researchers, to include Tim Swartz, Brad Steiger, Nick Redfern, Diane Tessman, Valerie D’Orazio, Brent Raynes, Cynthia Cirile, Hercules Invictus and Joseph Green.

The various authors discuss their own experiences with synchronicity as well as provide an overview of some of the “real-world” factors that support Dick’s concept that our reality has been preprogrammed by computer “designers” we can barely conceive of as existing, let alone claim to understand.

Our existence means something. It is important to us, even if we live in a mechanized contrivance that is to some extent basically indifferent to our struggles and hardships. Perhaps, by coming to understand what synchronicity really is, we will be taking that first step to a truly free form of consciousness that transcends the matrix entirely. Timothy Green Beckley, for one, certainly hopes so.

IS THERE A HOLLOW EARTH/JOHN F. KENNEDY ASSASSINATION CONNECTION?

By Sean Casteel

*** Admiral Richard E. Byrd is thought of as an iconic American hero. But what was he concealing from the public, and why did he swear to secrecy a handpicked group from among the crews that accompanied him on his polar expeditions?

*** In 1938, the Nazis asked Byrd to join their expedition to the North Pole, which the admiral quite naturally declined. The Nazis went there without him, seeking to make contact with a hidden race of supermen by finding a doorway into the Hollow Earth that was believed to exist in the icy northern wastelands. Did the Nazis succeed in making that contact? Did they get alien assistance in building their own disc-shaped aircraft?

*** The admiral’s cousin, David Harold Byrd, was an oil-rich financier from Texas who funded some of Admiral Byrd’s earlier polar expeditions. By virtue of his wealth, Harold Byrd was part of the inner circle of the wealthy and powerful in Texas, which included Lyndon Johnson and John Connelly. Did the secret cabal somehow have a hand in the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Was the conspiracy of murder birthed in a Houston hotel room?

*** There is said to be a world beneath our feet, a civilization located at the innermost core of our planet. Some call it the Hollow Earth or the Inner Earth. It has been described as a virtual paradise by some and a horrifying, hellish nightmare by others. Doorways into this mystery realm have been sought for centuries, but has the actual opening been photographed from space by our modern day satellites?

The latest book from publisher Timothy Beckley investigates a possible Hollow Earth/UFO/JFK assassination connection.

TO many in the UFO and conspiracy theory communities, Admiral Richard E. Byrd is not merely some benign fatherly figure smiling at us from the pages of 20th century history. While Byrd is commonly thought of as a national hero and a courageous explorer of the forbidding wastelands of the Polar Regions, those who look a little deeper soon discover a disturbing darkness and subterfuge that entangles the American icon in many a wicked web.

            The history of Byrd’s covert “dance with the demons” is covered most thoroughly in a 2017 book issued by Global Communications/Conspiracy Journal, Timothy Green Beckley’s publishing house. The book is called “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd,” and is subtitled “The Hollow Earth, Nazi Occultism, Secret Societies and the JFK Assassination.” Beckley uses his usual “kitchen sink” method, employing several writers who attack the various subjects from a great many angles.

THE STORY OF BYRD AS AN EXPLORER BEGINS

In the interest of disclosure, I also contributed a few chapters to “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd,” including a Q and A with Tim R. Swartz, Beckley’s resident expert on all things Byrd.

            “Before he was Admiral Byrd,” Swartz told me, “he was Richard Evelyn Byrd, Jr. and he was born in 1888. Byrd graduated from the Naval Academy in 1912 and was commissioned an Ensign in the U.S. Navy. He volunteered to become a naval aviator.”

            Along with a keen interest in flying, Byrd also had a fascination with exploration. By the time he came of age, there was little new left in the world to explore except the Polar Regions.  Expeditions had been traveling to the areas at the North and South Poles since the 19th century, but Byrd believed he could do a more complete job of exploring there, especially with the added advantage of aircraft that would give his team the ability to view the icy regions from the sky.

Admiral Byrd and Floyd Bennett Swartz chapter

Admiral Byrd and fellow pilot Floyd Bennett, the team that flew over the North Pole.

              “His first trip was in 1926,” Swartz said, “when, along with a pilot named Floyd Bennett, he attempted to fly over the North Pole in a tri-motor monoplane. It lasted about fourteen to fifteen hours, and they claimed to have reached the North Pole, covering a distance of about 1,500 miles. They encircled it and then managed to make it back safely. When he returned to the U.S., he was a national hero. Congress even passed a special act that promoted him to the rank of commander and awarded him the National Medal of Honor. From that point on, to the U.S., Byrd could do no wrong.”

            In 1938, Byrd visited Nazi Germany. The Nazis were intent on exploring the Arctic themselves and invited Byrd to participate in their expedition. Times being what they were politically, Byrd quite naturally declined. So the Nazis went to the North Pole without him and probably established several bases in the region, beginning then and lasting through the duration of World War II, according to Swartz.

THE MYSTERY OF ‘HIGHJUMP,’ THE ABORTED MISSION

Operation Highjump

In 1946, in postwar America, Operation Highjump was conceived. Intended to be an exploratory visit of Antarctica, the huge number of ships, helicopters and other aircraft, along with 4,000 personnel, that were mustered for the project continues to arouse suspicion. Although the expedition was originally planned to last for six months, the mission was called off after only three weeks, with the team claiming they had done all the exploring necessary.

The Nazis were intensely interested in exploring the South Pole and even drew up maps which some say pinpointed the location of an opening to the inside of the Earth.

            “Some people have speculated,” Swartz said, “that they went there in search of a secret Nazi base hidden somewhere along the coast of Antarctica. At the end of World War II, there were a number of German U-boats that had left the Canary Islands carrying personnel, equipment, supplies and things like that. They would later surrender in Argentina but without all the personnel and equipment on board. Now, one of the U-boat captains said that they had dropped off their people, equipment, etc. at a secret base in Antarctica. And declassified documents show that this could be one of the reasons why this expedition Operation Highjump had been established, to find out just what was going on in Antarctica.”

            Swartz said that the Nazis had become interested in places like Antarctica because Hitler believed there might be an entrance there that would lead into the Hollow Earth. According to the occult lore that Hitler subscribed to, the Hollow Earth was the home of the Root Race, the Aryan people, supermen that Hitler hoped would aid him in his dream of world conquest.

FREEMASONRY, SECRECY AND THE ‘LOYAL LEGION’

TIM CRIDLAND POSED PHOTO

Investigator Tim Cridland has delved deeply into the death of President Kennedy and the existence of a Hollow Earth.

Writer Tim Cridland contributes some chapters to “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd,” including a discussion of Byrd’s ties to Freemasonry and his reputation for secrecy.

            “Richard Byrd was a Freemason,” Cridland writes, “having joined a Washington, D.C., lodge in 1921. It seems being members of secret societies – and the Freemasons in particular – was a ‘thing’ for explorers of the day. The mainly volunteer crew at Little America, the base camp for Byrd’s 1928 Antarctic expedition, were so unruly that Byrd formed a secret society within the group. Eleven of the 42 men at the base were Masons like Byrd. Byrd’s secret society, which he called the ‘Loyal Legion,’ was obviously based on the Masonic systems of initiation and confidentiality.”

            Byrd, in order to protect himself from mutiny in Antarctica and to guard his reputation when he returned to the U.S., made the initiates swear to divulge to no one the existence of the Loyal Legion. They further had to swear that they would not try to learn the names of other members of the group. Most importantly, they swore to do whatever Byrd asked them to do and not to tell anyone that Byrd asked them to do it.

            “If Byrd needed people around him that were loyal and able to keep secrets,” Cridland explains, “and he found Freemasonry to be a system that facilitated this, his future actions were congruous. On his next Antarctic expedition, which took place in 1934-35, 60 of the 82 members were Freemasons. He established the First Antarctic Lodge, number 777, in February of 1935.”

            It does seem as though Byrd was stacking the deck by surrounding himself with like-minded Freemasons who were willing to keep his secrets both inside and outside the lodge. Just the sort of thing that conspiracy theorists, such as ourselves, tend to find significant.

IS THERE PHOTOGRAPHIC PROOF OF THE HOLLOW EARTH?

Cridland also contributes a chapter about the “Hole-at-the-Pole Theory,” the same allegedly supernatural portal that had sent the Nazis scurrying to find a way into the Hollow Earth.

             “The question most often asked by the uninitiated,” Cridland writes, “when discussing the Hollow Earth theory: ‘If there are holes at the poles, why aren’t there any satellite photos of them?’ The usual response is to pull out the photos uncovered by Ray Palmer in the June 1970 issue of ‘Flying Saucers Magazine.’ Palmer, the man that some claim was responsible for starting the public’s obsession with flying saucers, had started the modern-day Hollow Earth movement in an earlier issue of the magazine.

hollow earth image polar opening

Photo purports to show opening at the North Pole.

            “Palmer, upon finding the photo taken by the ESSA-7 satellite on November 23, 1968, declared ‘The North Pole photo, lacking clouds in the polar area, therefore reveals the surface of the planet. Although surrounding the polar area, and north of such areas as the North American continent and Greenland and the Asian continent, we can see the ice fields of the eight-foot thick ice. But in the photo, we do not see any ice fields in a large circular area directly at the geographic pole. Instead, we see – THE HOLE!’”

            But Palmer’s claims have been impossible to verify with follow-up photos. Cridland says that is likely because there have been a scant few other photos that claimed to show a polar void, and that even fewer are taken from a polar-orbiting satellite. Which makes photos relevant to this discussion hard to find. Later photos, which captured images using the relatively new capability of infrared satellite photography and taken long after Palmer’s enthusing over the 1968 satellite photo, did not prove the existence of the hole either. The expected heat signature of the supposed hole simply wasn’t there.

            Cridland says this does not mean we should rule out the possibility of a Hollow Earth, however, since we are dealing with government photos that may have been doctored before being released to the public. We are already aware of a longstanding cover-up by the government as regards UFOs and the “aliens” who occupy them, so it requires no great leap of faith to believe this kind of secrecy may apply to the Hollow Earth as well.

BYRD’S COUSIN AND THE HOUSTON HOTEL ROOM CONSPIRACY

Speaking of government cover-ups, Cridland also contributes a chapter to “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd” that closely examines the relationship between the admiral and his cousin as well as a strange connection to the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

            “Byrd’s cousin, David Harold Byrd,” Cridland writes, “was instrumental in funding Byrd’s polar expeditions before the government took over. Harold Byrd promoted the expeditions quite literally like carnival attractions, having a replica of the Antarctic base Little America set up at the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. Richard Byrd showed his appreciation by naming an Antarctic mountain range after his cousin and benefactor.

David Harold Byrd

            “Harold Byrd’s oil wealth,” Cridland continues, “granted him entry into the inner circle of Texas power. He was a member of the 8F group, an elite organization named after the room number of the Lamar Hotel in Houston where they held meetings. The group of predominately right-wing business men had Lyndon Johnson and John Connelly in its ranks. 8F also coordinated political activities with other Southern right-wing politicians and businessmen, including Billie Sol Estes and Clint Murchison. These are names that are very familiar to researchers who have investigated Lyndon Johnson’s connections to the JFK assassination.”

            Cridland sketches in further damning details, such as the fact that Harold Byrd was the owner of the Texas School Book Depository, the building that Lee Harvey Oswald worked at and the alleged location of the fatal shots. Harold Byrd bought the building in 1939. When he returned from a suspiciously-timed, two-month African safari in January of 1964, Harold Byrd had the window that Oswald allegedly fired from – the window of the sniper’s nest – removed and kept it as a souvenir.

            “He morbidly decorated the bottom half of the window with newspaper clippings of the assassination,” Cridland writes, “and postcard pictures of Kennedy, Dealey Plaza and his Book Depository. He framed it and put it in the banquet room of his mansion, where it remained until the day he died in 1986.”

            It is as though Harold Byrd took no small amount of covert pride in the fact that he was part of both the successful presidential assassination and the subsequent – and quite nearly impenetrable – cover-up. While there is no obvious direct link between the Admiral himself and the purported Texas-based conspiracy, his blood relationship with his deep-pocketed cousin Harold should raise a few flags of interest. If the long and tangled thread of subterfuge and collusion that surrounds the JFK assassination is ever publicly exposed, will it be possible to follow the thread back to a Houston hotel room and the oil-rich David Harold Byrd?

MICAH HANKS ON THE NAZI CONNECTION

From the darkness surrounding Byrd, his cousin and the JFK assassination, we move along to what may be even darker terrain, as described by author and podcaster Micah Hanks.

            “It’s one of the most famous conspiracies,” Hanks writes, “associated with the end of the Second World War: that a group of Nazis escaped to Antarctica, where they had a secret base established to aid in the furtherance of their top secret flying saucer development program. Such tales have been the stuff of legends for decades now, and the persistence of rumors like these offer an alternative to popular theories about alien visitors that remain a hallmark of modern UFO lore.”

            Hanks refers to a 2006 discovery by Ohio State University scientists who claim to have located some kind of “gravitation anomaly” located below Wilkes Land, Antarctica. It was later speculated in the tabloid press that the anomaly could be the long-sought “secret Nazi UFO base” in question.

1-s2.0-S0040195112005677-gr2
“Gravitational anomaly” located below Wilkes Land, Antarctica.

            There is some legitimacy to this idea, according to Hanks, stemming from the fact that the Nazis did mount an expedition to the South Pole in 1938-39, though there is no proof they attempted to establish a more permanent stronghold there. Ironically, according to Hanks, the idea of Nazi UFOs in Antarctica has less to do with anything the Nazis actually did than with what Admiral Byrd himself said about it.

            Hanks quotes from a 1947 interview with Byrd, published in a Chilean newspaper, thusly: “The admiral stated that he didn’t want to frighten anyone unduly but that it was a bitter reality that, in case of a new war, the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds.”

            “As one can see,” Hanks continues, “such wording easily lends itself to the idea of a connection between the Nazi UFO mythos and something going on at the South Pole.”

            Yet the answer is still not so simple, according to Hanks. But we’ll leave the rest of what he has to say to readers of “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd,” who will no doubt approve Hanks’ thorough research and attempt to document the truth about a conspiracy theory that so far shows no sign of being abandoned.

THE TIP OF THE PROVERBIAL ICEBERG

“Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd” also includes the contributions of other writers, like Dianne Robbins, Richard Toronto and Dr. Raymond Bernard.

          Among the chapters I wrote myself is one about the legends of “Agharta,” a paradise located in the Hollow Earth that is lit by a wondrous internal sun and is sometimes visited by spiritual seekers of truth, like the reincarnated Buddhist monk, T. Lobsang Rampa. I also write about the Hollow Earth as described by writer Richard Shaver, who says the interior of our planet is a virtual infernal hell occupied by a demonic race he calls the “dero,” who use their ancient technology to wreak a continual evil havoc on us surface dwellers.

           “Secret Exploits of Admiral Richard E. Byrd” runs that gamut between the extremes of heaven and hell even as it places the often secretive Admiral – and various related conspiracies and secret societies – firmly in the context of known American history. The obvious Polar Regions pun is this: We are only seeing the tip of a dark and mysterious iceberg so far and must wait to learn whatever truth is ultimately revealed about Byrd and the secrets he so closely guarded.

When The Poltergeist Finds Its Voice

By Tim R. Swartz

A poltergeist distinguishes itself from traditional ghosts and hauntings. Could a poltergeist be something entirely different?

poltergeistactivity

It can be terrifying enough 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 and is probably the most prolific of all supernatural events. One of the earliest accounts was from around 500 C.E. when St. Germain, Bishop of Auxerre, was bothered by a spirit that battered the walls of a shelter the Bishop was spending the night in with showers of rocks. Another early case was the Bingen poltergeist, which comes from the Annales Fuldenses or Annals of Fulda. This incident happened near Bingen in present-day Bavaria around 856-858 C.E. A farmer was plagued by a stone-throwing ghost who shook the walls of his house “as though the men of the place were striking it with hammers,” set crops on fire and also shouted obscenities and accusations at the farmer suggesting that he had slept with the daughter of his foremen. The poltergeist would follow the man around and fearful neighbors would refuse to allow him near their homes.

The Bishop of Mainz sent priests with holy relics who attested to hearing the poltergeist denouncing the farmer for adultery. When the priests sang hymns and sprinkled holy water, the poltergeist threw stones and cursed at them.

The Bingen poltergeist had many typical features of a poltergeist that are still repeated in modern times. The fact that this poltergeist could talk is something that has been seen in other cases, but nevertheless, it really doesn’t happen that often.

Is A Poltergeist A Ghost?

Poltergeist phenomenon is often placed in the same niche as ghosts and hauntings. The implication is that a poltergeist is a ghost, i.e. a human that has died and returned in spirit form.  There is no doubt that there are similarities between ghosts and poltergeist activity. However, a ghostly haunting often tends to have the visual element; for example, a glowing figure dressed in old fashioned clothes is seen walking down a hallway. A haunting also repeats in the same way on a regular basis, much like a recording that is played back over and over. In long-term ghostly hauntings, a ghost will usually ignore entreaties from the living and shows no sign of awareness of its surroundings.

Poltergeist activity, instead, operates in a completely different fashion. A poltergeist almost never makes an “appearance” and becomes visible, but as with ghostly hauntings, there are always exceptions. A poltergeist can do things such as move heavy furniture, instantaneously teleport objects, produce explosive sounds and disgusting odors, create rain inside a building, cause spontaneous fires and other things that seem to be outside of our current understanding of physics.

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.

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

L’Antidemon de Mascon

One early case of a talking poltergeist happened in  Mâcon, France in 1612 when a Calvinist pastor named Francois Perreaud, (or Perrault), became the target of a very unsettling poltergeist. Perreaud’s poltergeist made its first appearance on September 19, 1612 when invisible hands started shaking bed curtains and tossing bed clothes onto the floor. This continued for several nights and then escalated when Perreaud and his family heard “A frightful din in the kitchen consisting of unearthly rumblings and knockings, accompanied by the sounds of plates, pots, and pans being hurled against the walls.” Perreaud rushed to the kitchen, expecting to find his kitchen destroyed, but was shocked to find that everything was normal and the kitchenware was in its place.

t_antmas56a_s

Title page of “L’Antidemon de Mascon” by the Calvinist pastor Francois Perreaud, detailing his experiences with a talking poltergeist.

Eventually a voice that was “very distinct and understandable, although somewhat husky” was heard in the house. It sang, “Twenty-two pennies, twenty-two pennies,” then repeated the word, “Minister” several times. Perreaud said to the voice, “Get thee behind me, Satan, the Lord commands you.”

The voice kept saying “Minister, minister,” until the exasperated Perreaud snapped, “Yes, I am indeed a minister and a servant of the living God before whose majesty you tremble.”

“I am not saying otherwise,” the voice replied.

Once the poltergeist began speaking, it would not stop. It recited the Ten Commandments, followed by the Our Father, the Apostles’ Creed, and other prayers. It also sang Psalms and recited accurate personal details about Perreaud’s family. The voice claimed that it was from the Pays de Vaud, which was at that time infamous for its witch hunts.

The voice told wild stories, made inappropriate jokes and often acted like a child and teased the maid. It was also able to expertly mimic the voices of various Mâcon residents. It also took on several different identities. At one time the voice claimed to be the valet of the original entity, who had left the house and was now in Chambery.

On November 25, the voice announced that it would no longer speak, but its antics in the form of throwing stones, tying knots in the mane and tail of Perreaud’s horse, and other typical poltergeist stunts, continued through until December when it finally disappeared forever.

Different Personalities, Different Voices

BellHouse

The Bell homestead. From Authenticated History of the Bell Witch, M.V. Ingram, 1894.

The Bell Witch poltergeist in 1817 was very similar to the Mâcon poltergeist due to the fact that “the witch” was extremely talkative and could imitate the voices of people from the area. The poltergeist was said to speak at a nerve-racking pitch when displeased, 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.

As well, the poltergeist had the ability to change personalities in the middle of conversations with the Bells’ or their visitors. The witch had five distinct personalities, each with different voices and traits which made it easy for the family to separate the perpetrator of the moment. These voices were named “Black dog,” “Mathematics,” “Cypocryphy” and “Jerusalem.”

This ability to produce “different personalities” also shows up in other poltergeist cases, creating a belief that there are a number of different entities haunting a house.

The Bell Witch was very fond of talking about religion and philosophy for hours on end, especially with John Bell Jr. The witch had developed a respect John Bell Jr. due to his tendency to stand up to its abusive behavior. In 1828, the poltergeist reappeared to John Bell Jr. telling him, “John, I am in hopes you will not be as angry at me on this visit as you were on my last. I shall do nothing to cause you offense; I have been in the West Indies for seven years.”

Despite his misgivings, the poltergeist had long talks with him about the past, the present and the future. Years later, he told his son, Dr. Joel Thomas Bell, the details of the poltergeist’s discussions. A book was published in 1934, The Bell Witch – A Mysterious Spirit, which supposedly was met by outrage by other members of the Bell family who felt that details of “the family problem” should not have been made public.

For a more complete history of the Bell Witch poltergeist, see The Bell Witch Project by Timothy Green Beckley, published by Inner Light-Global Communications.

The Shawville Poltergeist

When a poltergeist does find its voice it seems to take great delight in spinning wild tales of its identity and origin. It may at one time say it is the ghost of someone who died years before, only to change its tune later and profess to be the devil or a demon. Like the Bell Witch, the Shawville poltergeist (also known as the Dagg poltergeist), enjoyed entertaining visitors by telling obscene stories and conversely, singing hymns in an “angelic voice.”

dagghome2

The Dagg home as it looks now. The Shawville poltergeist also known as the Dagg poltergeist is a historical, and well documented case in Canada.

The Shawville Poltergeist took place in the Ottawa Valley, Quebec in 1889 and centered on the farm and family of George Dagg. The incidents started with what appeared to be animal feces streaked along the farmhouse floor. At first, a young farmhand named Dean was blamed since he was known to come into the house with dirty shoes. Nevertheless, after the boy had been fired, the strange incidents continued with crockery moving, fires starting spontaneously and windows being smashed.

The Dagg family’s eleven-year-old adopted daughter, Dina-Burden McLean, was also physically attacked by the entity when it pulled her hair so hard that her braid was almost torn off. Later, when Dina’s grandmother was making up one of the bedrooms, the girl shouted, “Oh grandmother, see the big, black thing pulling off the bed clothes!” The woman could see the sheets being pulled up, but couldn’t see what was doing it. She handed Dina a whip, telling the girl to strike out at the invisible being. Dinah struck the air a few times and both the girl and her grandmother heard a sound like a pig squealing.

A few days later a piece of paper bearing the message “You gave me fifteen cuts” was found nailed to the wall.

After this incident Dina claimed that she was hearing a strange, gruff voice that followed her around saying bad words to her. Soon, the entire family and others could hear the gruff, man’s voice who identified itself “as the Devil.” Not everyone was convinced the voice was a supernatural being and blamed Dina for everything. At one point her mouth was filled with water, yet the voice could still be clearly heard by everyone in the room.

Much like the Bell witch, the Shawville poltergeist enjoyed the attention and would talk for hours. It would often give conflicting stories on what it was. Previously it said it was the devil, later, it claimed to be the spirit of an old man who had died 20 years earlier. When George asked it why it was bothering his family, it replied, “Just for fun.”

It also admitted setting small fires in the house, but again only for its amusement. “I set the fires in the daytime, when you could see them. I like fires, but I didn’t want to burn the house down.”

After several months of activity, the voice announced that it was going away. When word got out, crowds began gathering at the house to witness the event. The voice was happy to answer questions from the crowd, but now it claimed, “I am an angel from Heaven, sent by God to drive away that fellow.”

“You don’t believe that I am an angel because my voice is coarse,” it said to the crowd. “I will show you I don’t lie, but always tell the truth.” Instantly its voice took on an “incredible sweetness,” and it started singing a hymn:

“I am waiting, I am waiting, to call you dear sinner, Come to the savior, come to him now, won’t you receive Him right now, right now, Oh! List, now he is calling today, He is calling you to Jesus, move! Come to Him now, Come to Him, dear brothers and sisters, Come to Him now.”

Witness testimony agreed that the poltergeist sang with such a beautiful voice that many of the women were reduced to tears. After several hours of singing, the poltergeist said goodbye, saying it would return the next morning and show itself to Dinah and the other children.

The next morning the children breathlessly told their parents that “a beautiful man, he took little Johnny and me in his arms… he went to Heaven and was all red.”

Under questioning, the children described a man dressed in white with a lovely face with long white hair. He also had ribbons and “pretty things” all over his clothes and a gold object with stars on his head. The man reached down and picked them up saying that they were fine children.

Dinah said he had spoken to her as well, telling her that everyone thought he was not an angel, but he would show he was. Then he had “gone up to Heaven.”  Questioned further, she said he seemed to rise up in the air and disappear in a kind of fire that blazed from his feet.

Compared to other poltergeist events, talking poltergeists seem to be in a category all by themselves. They may start out the same, annoying pranks, strange noises, showers of rocks and other debris, but then they seem to turn a corner and gain energy to a point where a consciousness and personality emerges.  The personality is much like a child or mentally challenged adult, but it is a personality nevertheless.

Both the Bell Witch and the Shawville poltergeist exhibit almost identical personality traits. Both were fond of using obscene language and taking on the roles of different characters. Both entities were never shy about talking for hours in front of multiple witnesses. In fact, they seemed to thrive on the attention. They also claimed the ability to travel instantaneously to far off locations, bringing back information that could be verified later.

Gef The Talking Mongoose

So much has been written about the “Dalby Spook” over the years that there really is nothing new that can be added for this chapter. Nevertheless, considering the similarities between “Gef” and other talking poltergeists, this amazing case does need to be included.

The case of “Gef the Talking Mongoose” started in 1931 on the Isle of Man, located in the Irish Sea between England and Ireland.

The farm, located on an isolated hilltop, was home to 60-year-old Jim Irving, his wife Margaret, and their 12-year-old daughter Voirrey.

Jim had been a traveling salesman before taking up farming in his retirement. The farm was not a success and the family struggled to make ends meet.  Doarlish Cashen (Manx for “Cashen’s Gap”) was extremely isolated with no electricity, no phone and no radio. By all descriptions, life on the Irving farm was dreary and offered few pleasantries.

This all changed when Gef made his appearance when the family started hearing strange “blowing, spitting and growling” sounds coming from behind the wooden paneling lining the farmhouse walls. Eventually these sounds turned into recognizable words from a very high-pitched voice. The voice introduced itself as Gef and claimed to be “an extra clever mongoose” born in Delhi, India in 1852.

Gef was soon holding regular conversations with the Irving family. He would travel in the space between the interior wooden paneling and the exterior walls of the house. He reportedly would throw objects like pins or rocks from the cracks and holes in the paneling. Although Jim and Margaret both caught brief glimpses of Gef, only Voirrey was allowed to look at him directly. She described him as being the size of a small rat, with yellowish fur, a flat snout like a hedgehog, and a long bushy tail.

Even though Gef acted like a poltergeist, he once told Jim that he was a living creature and was, in fact, terrified of ghosts. Like other talking poltergeist’s, Gef’s voice had an inhuman quality about it. Those that did hear him said his voice was high-pitched, at least an octave above a human voice. Unlike other talking poltergeist’s, Gef did not like to talk to others outside of the Irving family. Paranormal investigators Harry Price and Nandor Fodor went to great lengths to travel to Doarlish Cashen, but Gef refused to speak to them. However, there were plenty of witnesses to Gef’s ability to speak to convince both men that there was some sort of unusual activity at the Irving house.

gefmongoose

On one occasion Gef agreed to allow Voirrey to take his picture. The subsequent photographs did little to convince skeptics on the reality of the talking mongoose.

In their book about Gef, The Haunting of Cashen’s Gap: A Modern Miracle Investigated, Price and R. S. Lambert noticed some parallels to poltergeist cases.  They wrote:

“Many of the events related by Irving can be classified by those experienced in psychical research as belonging to the class of ‘poltergeist’ phenomena. Amongst these are Gef’s habit of throwing sand and small stones, also metal, wooden, and bone objects, at persons in or near Doarlish Cashen; the thumping, scratching, rapping, and banging noises which he makes behind the paneling and in the rafters of the house; and the movement of furniture.”

In 1970, Voirrey agreed to be interviewed by Walter McGraw for FATE magazine, Voirrey denied any involvement, and seemed rather bitter about the whole experience, stating, “It was not a hoax…Gef was very detrimental to my life. We were snubbed. The other children used to call me ‘the spook.’ We had to leave the Isle of Man, and I hope that no one where I work now ever knows the story. Gef has even kept me from getting married. How could I ever tell a man’s family about what happened?”

She continued by saying that Gef “made me meet people I didn’t want to meet. Then they said I was ‘mental’ or a ventriloquist. Believe me, if I was that good I would jolly well be making money from it now!”

Gef remains a true enigma in the hallowed halls of paranormal research. One side thinks that Gef was a poltergeist, while the other side thinks he was something else. If you were to compare Gef to other talking poltergeists, the similarities are obvious. Like the Bell witch and the Shawville poltergeist, Gef enjoyed singing hymns.  On January 19, 1935, Gef was in “high spirits” sang the hymns, “Jesus, my Savior, on Calvary’s Tree” and six verses of “The King of Love my Shepherd is.”

As well, like other talking poltergeist’s, Gef’s voice was said to be strange and not like human speech. Jim Irving also said that Gef’s laughter varied from what sounded like a small child, an adult chuckle, or a maniacal laughter that left the family thinking that they were dealing with an insane creature from hell.

Gef is also discounted as being a poltergeist because he was seen physically several times. However, a talking poltergeist is often able to make itself visible, but much like the way it can talk in different voices, it can also appear in different forms.

The Voice From the Stove

Around the same time that Gef was active, another talking poltergeist appeared in Zaragoza, Spain. The Palazon family was living in an apartment complex on Gascón Gotor street when in September, 1934 they started to hear maniacal laughter and voices coming from inside their home. At first the voice sounded like a woman, but later it would change and appear to be a man speaking. The family was perplexed by the strange sounds, but kept it to themselves for fear of ridicule.

When the din coming from the apartment became too much, neighbors called the police. The voice then started shouting: “Cowards, cowards. You called the police. Cowards!”

When they arrived, the households young maid, named Pascuala Alcocer, told police that when she was trying to light the wood stove, she heard a loud voice coming from the stove saying, “You’re hurting me!”

The police checked the apartment but couldn’t find any source for the mysterious voice. Word quickly spread and hundreds of people gathered outside of Building #2 in hopes of hearing the “duende” (goblin) for themselves.

Local police and judges personally investigated the home, forcing the family to move out as they shut off electricity and phone service as they tore the place apart. This enraged the voice and it shouted to everyone that it would kill them and all the residents in the building.

Authorities also brought in psychiatrists to question Pascuala, whom they suspected of hoaxing everything. The doctors suggested that Pascuala was mentally ill and that she was producing the voice through subconscious ventriloquism.  At one point they sent the maid on a vacation along with the family, yet the voice continued to speak. Even moving every resident out of Building #2 failed to stop it.

Whatever the source, the voice was able to see what was going on around the building. It would guess the number of people that were in a room at a time, it would interact with police officers directly when they asked it what it wanted.

“Do you want money?”

“No!”

“Do you want a job?”

“No!”

“Every man wants something.”

“I’m not a man!”

One of the original builders was brought in to take measurements of the kitchen, but the voice interrupted saying: “Don’t worry, it measures 75 centimeters.” The mason was so scared he left the building never to come back leaving his tools behind in a closet.

Eventually the voice vanished just as mysteriously as it arrived. Pascuala Alcocer went into seclusion lamenting up until her death years later that “the voice from the wall ruined her life.”

The Poltergeist As An Elemental

There are many more cases of talking poltergeists that have been carefully researched and chronicled, and probably hundreds more that were never reported for fear of ridicule.  The poltergeist by itself is an oddity in the world of paranormal research, and the talking poltergeist goes even further as a head-scratcher due to its outright off-the-wall high strangeness.

All kinds of theories on the true nature of the poltergeist have been suggested.  Black magic and curses as the cause of poltergeists are popular in countries such as Brazil where spiritism is still practiced.  Folk lore concerning elemental spirits such as fairies, hobs and goblins show that they were also fond of mischievous tricks such as throwing rocks, starting fires and stealing household objects.

Middle Eastern folklore and Muslim theology concerning the djinn and their amazing powers also have similarities to the poltergeist. The djinn are beings with free will that once lived on Earth but were sent away by God to a world parallel to mankind. The word djinn comes from an Arabic root meaning “hidden from sight,” so they are physically invisible from man as their description suggests.

The djinn will take possession of buildings or locations and torment any person who goes to live there. They throw rocks at people. They can levitate and cause objects to disappear. A djinn can quickly travel great distances. One of the powers of the djinn, is that they are able to take on any physical form they like. Thus, they can appear as 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 feel strong emotions such as fear or grief and gain energy from these strong emotions.

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

It is interesting to consider that the poltergeist could be an elemental spirit rather than a human.  This could explain why poltergeists (especially the more energetic talking poltergeist) are resistant and very hostile, to attempts to get rid of them by using religious methods.  If a poltergeist is not a human spirit or a demon in a Christian, Jewish or Muslim tradition, attempts to use exorcism are pretty much useless.

Could The Poltergeist Be An Artificial Intelligence?

Considering that the poltergeist could be something other than a human spirit, the website The State of Reality, (www.thestateofreality.com) states to be “the combined effort of four professional remote viewers that have set out to share their project findings regarding socially significant, anomalous target sets.”  On this site there is an interesting article concerning their remote viewing of the Bell Witch incident.

 Jeff Coley writes that the team’s result of their remote viewing attempt came up with the concept of “Something contained, or restrained inside an enclosure. Often this container was sketched and described to be like a bottle, while at other times as a box of some kind, which acted as an enclosure or a tomb. One viewer’s session described this object as an ossuary, similar to what a collector of antique relics might possess within their private collection. Other sessions described what looked suspiciously similar to the idea of a Genie bottle.”

According to Coley something had been contained inside a bottle or box. The viewers described it as a phantom, and intelligence and a thought form. The remote viewing work describes the purpose of this thing as having to do with amusement, recreation, performance, and the idea of sending a message. The viewers also described that the phenomenon was associated with something destructive in nature. One viewer notes that it is like a parasite or a time-bomb that somehow escaped or was accidentally released.

Could the talking poltergeist be an artificial “spirit” created by an ancient civilization eons ago?

The opinion by the remote viewers was that whatever the Bell Witch was, it had been deliberately contained as a punishment eons ago. Three of the viewers described guards who seem to be keeping this thing bottled-up. One viewer described these guards as ethereal, floating, muscular “brutes,” almost like otherworldly prison guards, while another viewer described something like a sentry, guarding and patrolling.

It almost sounds like the Bell Witch (and it even admitted to John Bell Jr. that it was millions of years old) was an artificial intelligence that had been created by a highly advanced and now vanished civilization that could have been terrestrial or even extraterrestrial. Its purpose might have been to entertain and teach but somehow became uncontrollable and had to be contained.

This is just speculation of course. But considering how unusual and powerful talking poltergeists can be, is it really so far-fetched to say that these invisible intelligence’s might be a form of artificial intelligence?  Not an intelligence contained within a machine, but an artificial intelligence without a physical form…in other words, an artificial “spirit.”

Perhaps these AI’s were locked away millions of years ago for some reason. As time wore on, some have managed to escape their confinement and then proceed to wreak havoc in the area where they were kept. Perhaps they have limited energy that can no longer be “recharged.” This could explain why they disappear so abruptly and completely, never to be heard from again.

When you look at past cases of talking poltergeists, they display personalities that if they were human subjects, doctors would describe them as psychotic or schizophrenic.  If my thesis is correct, this madness could be the result of millions of years of lonely confinement, with little hope of rescue.  The human mind would self-destruct in a matter of months. Consider what this amount of time could have done to an artificial mind.

Rather than fear and loathe these tortured entities, a better solution would be to offer them kindness and understanding. For any creature with a soul, even if it is an artificial soul, deserves happiness and even love. This is a difficult concept considering the torture these things have brought upon their victims, but even a savage dog will eventually respond to a kind heart.

Could the poltergeist respond as well?
