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

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 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.

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.

nazi hollow earth maps

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 It’s 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.

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.

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

Cocina-duende-zaragoza2

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?

Was Inventor Nikola Tesla a UFO Contactee?

By Sean Casteel

Nikola Tesla

In the more than 70 years since his death, Nikola Tesla has never ceased to be a fascinating, mysterious figure dwelling somewhere outside the borders of history as it is understood by the unseeing masses. While we as a 21st century civilization continue to reap the benefits of his outsized genius, Tesla has yet to be given the recognition he deserves as a major architect of the relatively technologically comfortable age we live in.

Still, there are those of us who do give Tesla his due, belatedly but sincerely. This article will deal with an aspect of Tesla’s genius that has gotten short shrift even from those of us who revere his name: UFO contact.

And that theory is nowhere better espoused than in “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla” by Tim R. Swartz. Swartz’s bestselling classic has recently been updated and reissued by Global Communications and is worth a new look whether you’ve read the first edition or not.

Tim R. Swartz

I interviewed Tim Swartz a few years ago for one of Tim Beckley’s now defunct newsstand magazines, and Swartz laid out some historical background of Tesla’s earliest beginnings.

“Tesla was born in Yugoslavia,” Swartz said, “in what is now Croatia, at midnight between July 9 and July 10 in 1856. He had that spark of genius right from the very beginning. There are a couple of people, I think, throughout our history, that you could classify as a ‘super genius.’ That’s the best word I can think of. Most people would agree that Einstein was one of our greatest geniuses. Maybe Leonardo da Vinci. And Nikola Tesla should fit right up there with those guys, because he just seemed to have this mind that was open to the universe.

“I suppose that’s a rather esoteric way of looking at it,” he continued, “but he had the ability to visualize his ideas to such a point that he could actually ‘see’ what he was visualizing in three dimensions. As he put it, ‘It seemed to hang in the air right in front of my eyes.’”

Nowadays, Tesla is best known to the general public as the inventor of the AC motor.

“Our entire system of electricity,” Swartz explained, “works with AC current. In Tesla’s day, Thomas Edison had come up with a system to deliver electricity to houses and buildings based on the DC current, direct currents. DC current works fine, but it can’t be sent over any great distance. Probably every half mile to a mile you would have to have a station that would step the power back up again and send it on for another half a mile or so. A very inefficient system, and really only good for close areas, like New York City. That’s where Edison had initially done some wiring.”

Tesla, by contrast, created a motor based on alternating current, which can travel hundreds of miles before it has to be retransmitted. This was a revolution for its time. Tesla came up with a working version of an AC motor and was the first to build, at Niagara Falls, a massive power generating station that supplied electricity to New York City.

“It was cheap, clean, efficient, and it actually worked,” Swartz said. “That’s probably Tesla’s greatest claim to fame.”

Tesla followed up that achievement by inventing radio. Though popularly credit for radio is given to Marconi, the Supreme Court declared some years after Tesla had died that Tesla’s patented radio devices had preceded Marconi’s and that Tesla is officially the father of radio. Tesla also created the first remote control device, which he demonstrated by directing a small battery-powered toy boat through various maneuvers on a lake as newspaper reporters looked on. He also designed a torpedo for use in warfare that was remotely controlled.

It was while working on a radio receiver designed to monitor thunderstorms that Tesla stumbled onto something quite extraordinary.
tesla_23
“Tesla thought that possibly he had received a radio signal from outer space,” Swartz said, “that could conceivably be from extraterrestrials. Which is a pretty amazing concept for his time. People in that era speculated that there could be life on Mars, but nobody suggested it too seriously. Tesla was conducting experiments in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1899, with a pretty good-sized radio receiver, because he was fascinated by the way lightning played in thunderstorms. He was trying to come up with a way to harness the power from thunderstorms.

“And one evening,” Swartz continued, “he received what he called ‘regular signals.’ You know, like beep, beep, beep. Not the usual static you hear from thunderstorms and lightning. He wondered at the time if he wasn’t listening to ‘one planet greeting another,’ as he put it. From that point on, it became somewhat of an obsession of his, to build better and better radio receivers to try to see if he could repeat what he heard. He got to the point where he claimed that he was actually receiving voice transmissions. He said it sounded just like people talking back and forth to each other. He made notes saying that he was actually hearing intelligent beings from another planet talking to each other, although he didn’t know what language they were speaking. But he still felt he understood them.”

An interesting point that should be made here is that at the time Tesla was hearing these alien voices through his primitive radio equipment, 1899, the country had just experienced the great Airship Wave of the late 1800s. No less a UFO expert than researcher and historian Dr. David Jacobs believes that is when true UFO contact first began, in the skies over America, when people familiar only with hot air balloons as real life flying devices began to see metal ships that flew over their homes and farmland, abducting the occasional cow and speaking to bewildered farmers in languages beyond their understanding. While one hesitates to abandon the more familiar Ancient Astronauts theory that says alien contact began with mankind’s birth in prehistoric times, Jacobs’ belief does tend to support what Tesla claims happened to him.

This also begs the question: Did aliens have some kind of part in leading Tesla to create what he did? It is argued in the controversial book “The Day After Roswell,” by the late Colonel Philip Corso and his collaborator Bill Birnes, that recovered alien technology was reverse-engineered and used to lay the groundwork for numerous inventions, including fiber optics and much else in the way of technology we take for granted today. One sometimes wonders if the aliens more likely are implanting the seeds for, or even directly “inspiring,” through some process of implanted thoughts, some of the marvels of the current age.
lostjournalsfront3
In any case, there is likely some kind of overlap here between Tesla’s voice contact and the inventions that came later, though it is of course impossible to prove. Tesla felt the voices were slowly preparing mankind for conquest and domination. In “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla,” Swartz goes on to recount the spine-tingling chronology of Tesla’s battle with these aliens he believed to be an enemy race, all set against a background of industrial espionage and governmental secrecy that would make for a crackerjack science fiction tale were it not for the fact that the events are alleged to be completely real.

Tesla later went public with his claim that he was receiving extraterrestrial voice transmissions and was subjected to the usual humiliating ridicule that greets UFO witnesses today when they try to speak openly of their experiences. But he remained firm in his conviction that the voices were genuine and posed a terrifying threat to life on Earth as we know it.

Global Communications publisher Tim Beckley provided more input on the connection between Tesla and UFOs.

“There are many who believe,” Beckley said, “that Tesla was actually a ‘star child’ of sorts, that he was born on another planet and left on the doorstep of his adoptive parents. This speculative theory was first offered in a long out-of-print book by Margaret Storm and a later book by our own Commander X titled ‘Nikola Tesla: Free Energy and the White Dove.’

“The idea that Tesla was born off-planet,” Beckley continued, “seems to have originated with a gentleman named Otis T. Carr. A Baltimore MD and inventor, Carr claims that he worked side-by-side with Tesla for years and that he discovered bits and pieces of the great inventor’s life that no one else knew about, including the fact that Tesla wasn’t originally from ‘here.’”

According to Beckley, Carr later went on to invent a saucer-shaped device that he said for a mere $14 million would take us to Mars or somewhere else nearby in the solar system.

“Carr was a controversial figure in his own right,” Beckley added, “but no one has been able to prove that he didn’t work with Tesla in Manhattan, where Tesla was living in the New Yorker Hotel near Herald Square. We do know that Tesla was fascinated with the possibility of life on other planets.”

Beckley reiterated Swartz’s statements regarding Tesla’s attempts to establish contact with the aliens via radio.

“And he might have been successful in reaching out to the stars,” Beckley said. “Furthermore, Tesla is said to have even developed a ‘Tesla Scope’ that anyone could use to make contact with extraterrestrials. The device was on display in Canada for several years before its owner passed away.”

Now a few words about the title of Swartz’s book. Tesla died in 1943, in poverty and relative obscurity. As he moved from hotel to hotel, staying one step ahead of his debts, he often left behind whole suitcases full of notes and diagrams for unfinished inventions. Legend has it that after he died, the federal government stepped in and confiscated the material, believing it contained designs for new weapons devices and therefore was relevant to national security.

Tesla Died in Poverty in 1943.

But apparently a few things slipped through the fingers of the government. At a 1976 auction in Newark, New Jersey, a collector named Dale Alfrey bought four boxes of papers for around $25. Alfrey at first thought he had purchased the notes of a science fiction writer and had no idea of the importance of what the boxes contained. Twenty years would pass before Alfrey began to actually read the material and to try to preserve the badly mildewing papers by scanning them into his computer. While he was absorbed in this effort, he was visited by a trio of Men-In-Black who looked to him like “undertakers.” They offered to buy the papers from Alfrey, who replied that they weren’t for sale.

After further discussion, which included some disturbing threats from the MIBs, the three visitors turned in unison and walked away. Alfrey felt himself to be regaining consciousness after being in a kind of trance. When he rushed back inside, the papers were gone, and so was the hard drive to his computer. He never completely recovered from the experience with the MIBs, but he did retain enough of what he had read of Tesla’s lost journals to be sufficient for Swartz’s book. Meanwhile, newspaper accounts from the time of Tesla’s death related that a dozen large boxes of Tesla’s notes may still be unaccounted for, perhaps waiting to be rediscovered and give up their secrets in our time.

This newly revised and expanded second edition of “The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla” by Tim R. Swartz also contains new chapters on Time Travel, Alternative Energy, and Nazi flying discs, all of which help to expand the range and depth of the legacy Tesla has left to us to assist in our 21st century groping for technological mastery of our world. If we ever learn to travel in time or to take our energy directly from the forces animating the universe or even to slip the surly bonds of Earth in a disc-shaped craft of human design, our debt to Nikola Tesla can only increase.

EXPLORING THE BIZARRE REALM OF THE PARANORMAL AND OCCULT SCIENCES

By Sean Casteel

Maria D’ Andrea

One of psychic Maria D’Andrea’s earliest memories is of fleeing as a refugee from her native Hungary during the Hungarian Uprising of 1956. She and her mother were among the 200,000 refugees seeking to escape iron-handed Communist rule in what would eventually become a failed revolution that was crushed by the puppet regime established by the Soviet Union.

            On that cold, icy trek to freedom, Maria’s psychic powers may have saved her life and her mother’s life as well.

Hungarian refugees cross a river on their way to Austria in November 1956.

            “It was actually my mother and some of her friends,” Maria recalled. “It was a large group. And as we were escaping, we got really cold and it was very dangerous. A lot of people around us were getting killed, but we were doing okay. The group stopped at a certain point and were trying to decide whether if they should go back or keep going forward. My mother told me I was six at the time. She said I told them that God said we should move forward and we’d be fine.

            “I don’t know why anybody would listen to somebody that’s six in the first place,” Maria continued. “But my mother said the group split up and half of them went back. The other half decided to listen to me. Apparently I wasn’t speaking in a way that a six-year-old would normally speak. My mother said the way I phrased it wouldn’t make sense for somebody my age. The group that went back, all of them got killed. But we made it to freedom.”

            Maria and her fellow travelers reached the safety of Austria and she and her mother would eventually resettle in the United States.

         When I mentioned to Maria that the Hungarian Uprising had recently had its sixty-year anniversary, she said, “You know what is weird? A lot of us don’t really keep track because we’re trying to move forward. But a lot of it I do remember. There was a lot of ice and it was freezing out.”

             The same psychic powers that delivered Maria and the other refugees from death have served her well as an adult. She has long been a fulltime, professional psychic, meaning that she makes her living giving readings and counseling to those seeking help from beyond. She is also an interfaith minister and a shaman and speaks publicly on spiritual, psychic, paranormal and interdimensional topics. Meanwhile, other members of her family, although they have similar abilities, don’t make their living that way.

            “Everyone in my family,” she said, “have jobs that have nothing to do with psychic situations. However, they do some psychic work on the side. As an example, both of my sons are in analytical fields and they both do readings. My grandparents on my mother’s side were trance mediums. My grandfather also did automatic writing and he used to channel his brother who had passed away when he was a lot younger.”

thumbnail_maria-lecturing

Maria insists that everybody has some degree of psychic ability hidden within them.

            Maria’s father owned a couple of businesses and was well-served by his analytical and psychic abilities.

            “Most of the people in my family were priests and ministers and professors at universities,” Maria said, “so they all had analytical jobs and possessed psychic gifts. They were highly intuitive.”

            But Maria insists that everybody everywhere has some degree of psychic ability hidden within them.

            “Everyone at some point has had a gut feeling,” she explained. “For example, when you first meet someone, not every time, but every now and then, before you even say hello you have an urge telling you whether you like them or you don’t. You ever notice that? So when you get that feeling, it’s more or less accurate. It’s a very intuitive, psychic – it’s like a warning system. It tells you basically if someone is not going to get along with you.”

            This doesn’t operate as a moral judgment on the other person, according to Maria. It simply means the connection between you and that person is not going to work out. Meanwhile, one’s intuition could just as likely be telling you that you’ve encountered a good situation.

            “So you’re picking up on whatever it actually is,” she said. “I feel that everyone has a base of psychic and intuitive ability. You can look at it this way: Some people are artists but everybody can draw. Well, pretty much, except me. I can’t do a stick figure. But everybody has a base for that also.”

Maria D’Andrea’s Positively Positive Spell Book.

            Global Communications/Inner Light Publications has published many of Maria’s books on numerous psychic topics. She is quick to point out that all her books are “How-To” books as opposed to a vain fixation on writing about her own life story.

            “I truly believe that the more you can do for yourself, the better the world gets,” she reasoned. “The better you do, the more you can help other people, and the better it gets for people around you. As an example, I have a book on finance. I have one on evocation, which is a heavier level of dealing with the spiritual realm. And then I have one that is a positively positive spell book.

             “I really never write anything negative and I don’t teach negativity. I truly believe in karma and that whatever you put out comes back. There’s always a positive way to approach everything. And the whole point is to help people improve their lives, whether it’s through meditation or rituals or spells or mentally focusing on situations. I always feel that if you have an interest in it then you’ll be attracted to it and you can benefit by spiritually improving your life.”

              You can read more of what Maria has to say about her work on her website, located at http://www.mariadandrea.com as well as contact her there should you wish to consult with her personally.

Maria D’ Andrea’s Supernatural Words of Power.

              Maria’s bestselling “Yes You Can!” series of books includes a newer title called “Supernatural Words of Power,” which teaches one how to harness the simple spoken word to attain and achieve the things you long for in life. You will learn to command the true power of language to establish an open channel to the cosmos. There is a powerful energy force generated by the spoken word that man has been able to control since ancient times, but this ability has been locked away in our collective unconscious and hidden from the masses of us for eons. Maria teaches a simple, step-by-step methodology for reawakening the power concealed within us using words as that force’s most basic tool of expression.

               But if you find yourself not interested in different methods of psychic “reaching out,” then you’re not supposed to be reading her books.

            “It always goes to the person who is ready to move on that type of situation,” she said. “You know that saying? When the student is ready, the teacher comes. I tend to look at it that way. Sometimes it’s just a matter of letting people know the techniques and the tools they can actually use to improve their lives. Whether they want to move on it or not, that is free will.”

            Maria is such a dedicated teacher that she even does it without payment on occasion.

            “I do a lot of media work,” she said. “I used to teach on the air for free. I had a TV show called ‘The Spiritual World With Maria’ and it’s now available on YouTube. As much as we need to make a living, because, unfortunately, the phone company does not barter, we still need to put back. Because it’s a circle.

               “People always seem to forget the putting back part,” she continued. “Sometimes people look at putting back as a money thing, but it really isn’t. Sometimes it’s that you can help people financially. Sometimes it’s as simple as a friend needing a ride to the store or for an appointment if their car isn’t working. If you give them a ride, you’re putting back. Sometimes people really need advice. If you’re giving them advice from the heart, if you feel it’s going to help them, again, you’re putting back. The funny part is, when you do something like that, because you want to and you’re doing it from the heart, it really does come back. When you need a ride, say twenty years later, somebody’s going to be there for you.”

              One of the most basic components of what Maria teaches is open-mindedness, a sense of the psychic realm as a place we can freely explore in a continual learning experience. But first we must learn “psychic self-defense,” which Maria cautions readers to do in all of her books by the use of rituals and spells and by visualizing the protective white light radiating from heaven itself. Once that is taken care of, a positive spirit may come and speak to the seeker.

thumbnail_words-have-power-art

              “Now, it can be clairaudient,” she explained, “which means you can actually hear words in your mind. It sounds exactly the same as if someone was standing behind you where you don’t see them but they’re talking to you. There’s absolutely no difference in the way you hear it clairaudiently. Sometimes you have to remember they’re not literally there.

              “I’ve actually had it happen where I turned around to answer somebody before I remembered that they weren’t ‘there,’” she said, laughing. “But it sounds exactly the same. Sometimes you clairvoyantly see something or someone. You can actually see them physically. It depends on the situation.”

              But when inviting spirits into your life, again, you must remember to first use psychic self-defense methods.

              “I keep coming back to that,” Maria said, “because it’s really imperative. If there was something negative coming in, a negative spirit or entity, what would happen is that you would see them or hear them or know that they’re there, but they cannot affect you. That’s the difference. You’re always safe when you do this.”

              This ability to be impervious to negative spirits is what makes it possible to do a house cleansing, for example, and banish evil spirits – because we are always safe.

psychic-defense

Maria cautions that when inviting spirits into your life you must remember to first use psychic self-defense methods.

              “In the physical world,” Maria said, “we’ll go to places none of our friends would go to because we’re safe everywhere.

              “But say you’re summoning a spirit,” she went on. “If it’s a relative, it’s fine, because you know who the relative is. If you’re summoning a spirit by name, you need to be really sure what that entity is before you do that. Some folks will read a book and they’ll call in a name because the book said that it’s a positive spirit. I always say before you call in a spirit to work with you or help you, I would go to Google or the encyclopedia or the library and find out what they say this particular entity does. Don’t just look at what just one person says that they do. You want to double-check because you want to be safe.”

There are other necessary practices to follow.

              “One is, you have to be in a positive mood,” she said. “You have to have a goal. You have to be aware that you have free will. You have to know you’re in control at all times because in the physical body we really have the control.”

              There are times when a given spirit may not wish to work with you, she said, at which point you try calling in a different spirit who IS willing to work with you. Once the ritual or summoning is completed, you mustn’t forget to thank the spirit for helping you.

              “I happen to be an interfaith minister,” she said, “so I consider it to be God. But whatever you name your source, that’s that works for you. You have to thank your sources and send the spirit back. Because if you controlled its coming to you, it’s not going to leave until you send it home. You would get all kinds of issues if you forget. So you do have to send them back.”

A spirit has some degree of choice as to whether to leave or not.

              “But you have to remember that we have the will power,” she said. “We’ve spoken. We have to have emotions behind it because emotions are like a battery charger. And we really have to have no fear because we know we’re safe everywhere. That takes a little practice. If you encounter something negative, your first reaction is to panic. You can’t panic. You just have to remember that you’re always safe.

               “There really is no ‘negotiating’ with spirits,” Maria continued. “People have a misconception about that. We are always in control. The spirit can choose whether or not to work with us, but as soon as you’re dealing with a spirit where you’re supposed to be negotiating, you’re dealing with something negative. Don’t deal with the negative. As soon as any negotiating gets started, you want to send the spirit away and to have sufficient control to send the spirit away.”

Maria made reference to an occult law that says “like attracts like.”

             “So when you’re working in a positive way,” she said, “most of the time you’re going to attract positive spirits, because like attracts like. It doesn’t mean a negative spirit may not pop up to see what you’re doing or to test you. But they’re not going to feel ‘comfortable’ around you.”

              Sending an evil spirit love and healing energy works against its negativity and leads it to back off. But any feelings of anger or fear or emotional upset on the part of the human in question will be like delicious food to a malevolent entity. It’s a creature of negative energy that feeds on mortal negativity.

thumbnail_maria-would-love-to-talk-to-you

One of the reasons Maria likes to do readings is that what comes up in a reading is what people NEED to know, but not always what they WANT to know.

               Maria spoke about how the word “occult” simply means ancient wisdom and hidden knowledge, adding that today the more frequently used words are “paranormal” or “metaphysical.”

                “We really are the oldest science,” she said. “It’s not just a matter of someone up there chanting.”

                  For Maria, as a professional psychic, her mastering of the occult sciences and their wisdom has served to help others navigate the spirit realm and create positive change in their lives.

                  “One of the reasons I like to do readings is that what comes up in a reading is what people NEED to know,” she explained. “It’s not always what they WANT to know. At the end of a reading, I put in questions that the person can ask. But I never want to know anything ahead of time, because the universe will tell them what they need to know that’s going to help them improve their lives. Whether people make the move on things or not, that’s free will. But the point of a psychic reading is always to elevate yourself spiritually and to be able to maneuver much better within your own life.

                 “You don’t always have to use tools to be able to work in these areas. Some of it is just very direct. It’s a combination of mental focus and technique. You don’t always need rituals, spells, candles, gemstones, any kind of tools. A lot of times, our best work is when we just go direct. But the point of the books and some of the tools and rituals is for people who haven’t been on that level yet. It’s kind of like a training level. Once you really get the hang of it, eventually the point is not to need any of it.”

VISITING THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON – UFOS, MEDIUMSHIP AND THE PARANORMAL

 By Sean Casteel

At one point in the history of America the belief in spiritualism was as strong – and as controversial – as the belief in UFOs is today. And a demonstrable parallel can be drawn between the two topics, which even seem to attract some of the same people across the various paranormal research fields – more so in recent years as increasing numbers come to accept the reality of UFOs as being at least partially of a paranormal or supernatural nature.

seance_circle

The most fundamental belief of the Spiritualists is that the soul survives physical death and that certain departed souls can communicate with the living.

Spiritualism flourished beginning in the mid-19th century and for many decades held a fascinated general public in its thrall. Whether one was a believer or a determined skeptic, everyone had an opinion as to the reality of contacting the dead, with many others devoting their energies to the tireless debunking of fraudulent mediums who the skeptics thought were scamming the public and taking their hard earned money deceitfully.

What is Spiritualism? The most fundamental belief of the Spiritualists is that the soul survives physical death and that certain departed souls can communicate with the living. This communication is achieved through the agency of a medium, a man or woman who claims the distinct ability to speak with those who have passed away.

thumbnail_strange-figures-inside-teepee

The Shaking Teepee Phenomenon is common throughout Native American culture. A shaman will enter a teepee and the shadows of spirits will appear even though the medicine man is bound so that he cannot move about.

Mediumship traces its roots back to the ancient shamanistic traditions and is an extension of many priestly traditions as well. Most Native American tribes had at least one shaman or “medicine man” among them who would go into a specially prepared teepee and enter into a trance state (sometimes in a drug-induced state) in order to contact the ancestors of the tribe. Those standing outside the teepee could see mysterious shadows and figures moving about inside the lodge which could not have been the shaman. His hands were often bound and his posture secure – much like in a séance off the reservation.

A true medium can be a conduit for numerous Spiritualist phenomena, including prophecy (i.e., the Oracle of Delphi in ancient Greece). He or she may also be capable of clairvoyance and clairaudience, possess the gift of speaking in tongues and of healing by the laying on of hands. They may see visions and enter easily into a trance. A medium can also summon spirits and guides from the world of the dead and even cause the voices of the departed to speak aloud to a gathering of the living at a séance.

A distinguished British physicist and chemist, Sir William Crookes, around the turn of the 20th century categorized certain physical manifestations of spiritualistic activities. These include:

*** The movement of heavy bodies with contact but without mechanical exertion.

*** The phenomena of percussive and other similar sounds.

*** Movements of heavy substances when at a distance from the medium.

*** The rising of tables and chairs off the ground, without contact with any person.

*** The levitation of human beings.

*** The movement of various small articles without contact with any person.

*** Luminous appearances.

*** The appearance of hands, either self-luminous or visible by ordinary light.

*** Direct (automatic) writing.

*** Phantom forms and faces.

*** There is also the possibility of special instances that seem to point to the agency of a superior intelligence as well as miscellaneous occurrences of a complex character.

All of which sounds like a motherlode of the strange and bizarre and calls to mind many of the claims made by UFO abductees. This relationship between Spiritualism and UFOlogy has often been noted by Timothy Green Beckley, the CEO of the publishing houses Global Communications and Inner Light Publications. While Beckley is widely known as Mr. UFO, he has also long been interested in spiritualistic and occult matters and has republished classic works in the field.

The latest such offering from Beckley is “We Can Awaken the Dead: Evidence of an Afterlife Now!” It consists mainly of the personal journey to Spiritualist truth made by Vice Admiral W. Usborne Moore, a British naval officer who publicly advocated the notion that we can communicate with our departed loved ones.

MODERN SPIRITUALISM

thumbnail_vice-admiral-william_usborne_moore_spiritualist

A military man for most of his life, Vice Admiral William Usborne Moore’s worldview “softened” greatly after being contacted by the spirit of a loved one during a séance.

Moore began as a skeptic. He talks of reading a book, at the recommendation of an acquaintance, by the aforementioned William Crookes called “Researches into the Phenomena of Modern Spiritualism,” which Moore said had led many people to the subject. Readers marveled that Crookes’ credentials as a scientist did not deter him from expounding at length on the existence of “forces exercised by invisible intelligences.”

Moore decided to test the waters himself and went to visit a clairvoyant named Mrs. Crompton, in Portsmouth, England, in 1904.

 “She clairvoyantly saw a spirit form near me,” Moore writes, “that answered very nearly to ‘Iola’ as I remember her.”

Another medium, a Mr. Vango, described Iola to Moore two or three times, giving her name.

“These were the first intimations I received,” Moore explains, “of the desire of my relative to get in touch with me.”

As time passed and Moore visited other mediums, Iola continued to reach out to Moore.

thumbnail_seance-images-phenomena

During the heyday of spiritualism, photos of ectoplasm and spirits were often taken in the séance room. Some were obvious hoaxes. Others could not be so easily explained. Here are photos of ectoplasmic spirit and the fabled angel hair found at UFO landing sites that often dissolves in minutes.

“To be brief,” Moore writes, “I found that the deeper I went into the study of Spiritism, the more apparent it became that, whether he wished it or not, man’s individuality was not extinguished at death. I read books, visited clairvoyants, and attended séances for materialization. Through all of this I was constantly reminded of the existence of a near and dear relative, older than myself, who passed away thirty-seven years ago in the prime of her life. Her continued reappearances could only lead me to one conclusion: I was being guided to a reconsideration of the problem of immortality.

“At last, I have come to the absolute conviction,” he continues, “that what we call ‘death’ is a mere incident, a door to a higher life that is, in reality, more substantial to the senses we shall hereafter possess than the one we set so much store upon here. The near relative who had proved to me this valuable truth is called in this volume ‘Iola,’ a spirit name which she herself adopted to avoid the unpleasant complications that may arise as to her identity among those of her friends and relatives who are not educated in Spiritism.”

Thus Moore was drawn to the subject by his lost relative reaching out to him and not the other way around. Iola seemed to reenter his life from the world of the dead completely unbidden and without prompting on Moore’s part.

Along with his heartfelt belief in the genuineness of Spiritualism, Moore also took aim at the debunkers.

“Nothing they write has tallied with what I’ve seen,” he declares. “For a concrete instance of the foolish suggestions put forward by these ignorant ‘know-it-alls,’ I would point to a recent work in which there is a description of how slate-writing is performed.”

slate_3_lily_dale_museum

A slate that is now on display in the Lily Dale Museum, still has a message and a drawing of flowers allegedly produced by a spirit during a séance.

Slate-writing falls into the category of “physical” spiritualist phenomena in which a spirit takes chalk in hand and write messages from beyond on a small slate.

“The writer says the sitter brings his own double slate,” Moore writes, “and the psychic deftly inserts a small piece of chalk previously prepared by being mixed with steel filings. While the slate is being held under the table or elsewhere, the psychic moves the chalk by means of a magnet concealed up his sleeve and does it as in mirror writing.”

The debunking writer unequivocally says the deceiving medium’s use of this method is unassailable fact, but Moore quite pointedly differs.

“This statement of ‘fact’ is untrue,” Moore argues. “Such a thing cannot be done. Even with an electromagnet in open sight it would be impossible to write twenty legible words. With a man sitting near you and watching you it is not possible to write five legible words without detection.”

Nevertheless, Moore admits, books by debunking authors sold well and perhaps helped the naysayers to climb the social ladder of the time.

“For the majority of educated people are anxious not to be disturbed in their amiable doctrines of a Day of Judgment,” Moore reasons, “and a fiery material hell in store for those who do not agree with them.”

Readers at this juncture will observe that the way the skeptics behaved during the heyday of spiritualism is similar to the debunkers today who go out of their way to discredit many UFO experiencers, be they abductees or the much more tainted contactees of the late 40s and 1950s.

Early on in his book, Moore describes other physical phenomena he had personally witnessed, which included the materialization of heads and busts of discarnate entities, spirit singing, whispers and the flight of a musical instrument around the room and over the heads of the sitters, all the while playing a definite tune.

“I saw and heard a number of things,” Moore writes, “that could not be explained by any system of juggling or deception of any sort.”

THE DAVENPORT BROTHERS – THE GREATEST PHYSICAL MEDIUMS OF ALL TIME?

thumbnail_davenport-brothers

The Davenport Brothers managed to produce all sorts of phenomena while they were chained in a special spirit cabinet. Musical instruments would play and fly around the room of their “own accord.”

Such physical manifestations as Moore described were an everyday occurrence for the Davenport Brothers, a duo of American spiritualists whose talents were celebrated by none other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the immortal detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle had manufactured a character whose skills as a logician solved many crimes, but Doyle himself was given to more mystical beliefs. His struggle against the magician and escape artist Harry Houdini over the veracity of Spiritualist claims – including that of the Davenports – is well-known. Beckley has published a book [see the Suggested Reading list at the end of this article] dealing with their very public conflict as well as other strange theories about Houdini’s “hidden powers.”

Beckley has also published “Dark Séance: The Fabulous Davenport Brothers,” which is in part a reprint of a detailed account of their careers written in the early part of the 20th century. Their story began in 1846, when the Davenport family was disturbed by what they described as “raps, thumps, loud noises, snaps, cracking noises, in the dead of night.” Not knowing how to respond, they simply did nothing.darkseance

A few years later, when the famous Fox Sisters began making headlines for experiencing similar things, ten-year-old Elizabeth Davenport declared that if such things happened to anybody, they might as well happen to them. The Davenports gathered around their table, placed their hands upon it, as they had read the Fox Sisters had done, and waited to see what would happen. After a few moments a movement as of swelling or bulging was felt in the table, then crackling noises, tippings, raps, and, finally, very loud and violent noises.

Ira Davenport, five years older than his sister, Elizabeth, was “taken with a violent propensity to write, his hand becoming subject to extraordinary gyrations. These messages were believed to be quite beyond both his mental or physical powers, and contained matters known only to the persons to whom they were addressed, and quite beyond his personal knowledge.”

Another incident in this early stage of the Davenports’ development involved the knives, forks and dishes on the breakfast table beginning “to dance around as if suddenly imbued with vitality. In a few moments the table began to move, tipping up sideways, balancing itself on one leg and finally rising clear from the floor, floating in the air without the least support and moving in such a way that it was wonderful that the dishes upon it did not slide off and come crashing upon the floor.”

Meanwhile, Ira’s younger brother, William, had begun to communicate with an entity who said he was not of this Earth. The entity warned them to procure a large table for the better accommodation of those who would be coming from far and near to see these wonders for themselves. The family began to hold regular séances during which the physical manifestations were repeated in front of witnesses. Loud raps were heard; the table answered questions; spectral forms were seen in the flash of a pistol; lights appeared in the upper parts of the room; and musical instruments floated in the air while being played upon above the heads of the company.

davenportbrothers

Ira Erastus Davenport and William Henry Davenport.

The spirits somehow communicated to the Davenports that Ira and William should take their show on the road. They began by touring in Maine and obligingly permitted debunkers to thoroughly examine their equipment and to bind the brothers hand and foot so that no sleight of hand could be perpetrated. In spite of these conditions, the brothers were nevertheless able to conjure mysterious arms and hands that would play musical instruments.

While appearing in Philadelphia, the brothers were met with “violent opposition” from “philosophers,” religious bigots, other spiritualists and people spoiling for a fight in general. It required fifty policeman to keep order. In spite of this, the brothers still produced the most extraordinary manifestations even before hostile crowds.

They continued to amaze observers and moved on to tour England and Scotland, appearing not only in theaters but also in private homes. In exclusive drawing rooms in London, they performed before not the “ignorant or the credulous,” but a select company that included some of the sharpest minds in England, none of whom could see any method of deception on the part of the Davenport Brothers.

 A writer for a London newspaper, The Morning Post, who was present for one such private séance, reported – somewhat bewilderedly – that, “Possibly they may be [clever conjurers] or it is possible that some new physical force can be engendered at will to account for what appears on the face of it absolutely unaccountable. All that can be asserted is that the displays to which we have referred took place on the present occasion under conditions and circumstances that preclude the presumption of fraud. Here is a field for the investigation of the scientific world.”

Beckley’s “Dark Séance: The Fabulous Davenport Brothers” also includes his own musings on the brothers and Spiritualism in general, with particular attention given to the similarities between Spiritualism and UFOs. It is certainly true that both fields cry out for serious study by the scientific community, as The Morning Post writer urged in his account of the London séance.

This has been but a brief overview of “Dark Séance,” but the book itself is rich in fascinating detail. Ira died in 1911 and his brother William died tragically young at age 36 in 1877. Whatever the secret to their apparent miraculous powers was, it has never been disclosed or discovered.

While one reads Vice Admiral W. Usborne Moore and the Davenport Brothers in large part because they deal with physical manifestations of Spiritualistic workings, there is also another avenue explored in a book from Inner Light/Global Communications called “Thirty Years Among the Dead,” first published in 1924. The book is still available in older, more expensive editions, but Beckley’s version is the only one that can truly be called “complete and unabridged.”

“Thirty Years” is not, as the title may suggest to some, a dull account of hanging around a morgue somewhere. It offers instead a still vitally relevant approach to abnormal psychology that is based on the idea that extreme mental illness is caused – not by a harsh environment or muddled brain chemistry – but by the encroachment upon the innocent by the discarnate spirits of the evil dead.

You may already be thinking that therein lies the stuff of a great horror movie, but you will be intrigued to learn that “Thirty Years Among the Dead” is a factual, well-documented account of treating and actually curing the mentally ill by contacting the oppressing spirits within the sufferer and convincing those spirits to leave.

To carry out this form of therapeutic spiritualism, a physician named Dr. Carl A. Wickland worked alongside his wife, Anna, an accredited medium who voluntarily allowed herself to be temporarily possessed by these wicked spirits in order to better understand their tormented motivations. The Wicklands would then use this information to treat the victims who so grievously suffered under these destructive otherworldly influences. Along with the mediumistic coercion of spirits conducted by his wife, Dr. Wickland would administer low voltage electric shocks to the patient’s neck and spine with a device called a “Wimhurst generator,” a wand-like instrument that worked to “dislodge” the wicked spirit of the dead.

UFO research also has a variety of unexplained photos of a paranormal nature associated with it – such as the photo of Elizabeth Templeton taken on an isolated hilltop in the UK. When the family photos were developed, a strange “spaceman”-like image appeared that was not visible when the picture was taken.

In his introduction to the new edition, Beckley explains that the Wicklands felt they had absolute evidence that these demented spirits of the dead liked to hang around the living in order to continue their evil ways even from the afterlife. In essence, they would leech onto those who were prone to similar fits of debauchery or were well on their way to a life of unabated revelry and eventual damnation.

“The influence of these discarnate entities,” Dr. Wickland writes, “is the cause of many of the inexplicable and obscure events of earth life and of a large part of the world’s misery. A recognition of this fact accounts for a great portion of unbidden thoughts, emotions, strange forebodings, gloomy moods, irritabilities, unreasonable impulses, irrational outbursts of temper, uncontrollable infatuations, and countless other mental vagaries.”

Dr. Wickland points out that “records of spirit obsession and possession extend from the remotest antiquity to modern times,” including the Old and New Testaments and the Homeric legends. The Wicklands’ work stands as an example of the power of certain Spiritualist practices to heal deep psychological and emotional wounds, something science is still groping in the dark to accomplish through medication and simple talk therapy.

And while it is true that Spiritualism cannot today claim the many millions of followers and believers it had in the years between 1850 and the early decades of the 20th century, Timothy Green Beckley is part of the process of keeping the movement in front of the reading public and demonstrating its continued relevance to many fields of the occult sciences and to the pursuit of the truth underlying UFOs and alien abduction. Beckley’s publishing efforts may one day help the world to arrive at a kind of paranormal “Theory of Everything” where all the mysteries fit in their proper places – to the enlightenment of us all.

CONFESSIONS OF A PARANORMAL UFO TIME TRAVELER – MARIA D’ANDREA EXPLORES OTHER REALMS

By Sean Casteel

Maria D’ Andrea

At home in Long Island, Maria D’Andrea wears the multi-jeweled crown of psychic, shaman, interfaith minister, lecturer, teacher and author. She can also lay claim to the diamonds of UFO contactee and time traveler to complete her crown of wisdom.

I spoke to Maria recently, being fascinated particularly by her UFO-related experiences and her claim that she has developed the incredible ability to travel through space and time, which she describes in astonishing detail in her recent book “Travel the Waves of Time: Contacting Beneficial Beings,” which is part of the “Yes You Can!” series released by Tim Beckley’s Inner Light publishing.

From the start, Maria wanted to make it plain that, when we talk about UFOs and their occupants, we are actually speaking of more than just one type of craft and crew.

Interdimensional Aliens

“There are some aliens that are interdimensional and some that are physical,” Maria said. “But a lot of it is just that they’re on another plane of existence. We look at ‘spaceships’ – for lack of a better word. Sometimes, the way that they’re spinning vibrationally, you might see part of the ship because it will be in synch vibrationally with our realm for a couple of seconds or for a little while. Sometimes they’re simply physical ships. In any case, they have the ability to shift their energy between time and space. It’s just like when we go out-of-body, we’re able to travel totally without limits.

“But I find from my experiences, when I’ve run into the aliens, it happened more often when I was going out-of-body rather than seeing them physically. If you look at olden times, like really way back, people used to think of aliens that could travel between dimensions and through time as gods. They believed in ‘sky gods,’ which could have appeared in an airplane, a rocket ship or a spaceship. But because they ‘came down from the sky,’ the ancients saw them as sky gods. There is also an entity called Chronos, who is a time god, as well as one called ‘the angel of time.’ So through the centuries they’ve always had some type of god that came down in one form or another. They’re really either just time travelers or aliens coming into our space.”

Out of body experience

And what has Maria experienced herself in this regard? She says she now has the ability to consciously leave her body and often does so because it enables her to work with the various otherworldly energies quicker and more directly. During one out-of-body experience, she found herself looking at the planets.

“You’re thinking like you’re seeing somebody floating or flying through in-between the planets, right? And they’re usually going fast? I didn’t get to have that experience,” she said. “What I had was, I was stationary, like I was standing in one place, and the planets were moving. I remember a spaceship coming out from behind one of the planets. And it came a little bit closer. It kind of stopped and looked at me and then it went away. So these things happen more frequently when you’re out-of-body.”

 A VANGUARD OF UFO OCCUPANTS

In other experiences, Maria has literally seen the UFO occupants.

 “I had one situation where they looked just like us,” she recalled. “And then I had one that was just very strange. I’m kind of bad with heights and things, but they were a little bit taller than me and their skin was like a very dark brown. But it looked kind of leathery. When I met them, they seemed very, very friendly.

“They just wanted to pass on information to me. Which really means to ‘us,’ or whoever would have shown up. I don’t think it was only me specifically. Now, I was getting this more telepathically. It wasn’t as though I was getting a language or hearing it clairaudiently, which sometimes you do. This was more you just ‘know’ what they’re saying. There’s a ‘cross-sentience’ where you just know. There’s no other way to describe it.”

The dark brown leathery aliens communicated to Maria the idea that they wanted to help the world become more “awake.”

awake

AWAKE!

“The word I kept getting was ‘awake,’” she recounted. “I would have thought they would say ‘enlightened’ or ‘to do better,’ but I kept getting the word ‘awake.’ They were trying to awaken the planet and they were sending what looked like energy light waves. Think of a laser beam coming from them. It looked like it was coming from what we would call our Third Eye and the center of the palms of their hands. They were just sending white light with a little blue on the edges. I don’t know why. They didn’t explain the light; they just shined it on the planet to help the people awaken. Then they disappeared.”

Maria has had even stranger experiences, including this one that happened on her very first journey out-of-body.

monks

“The reason I’m saying ‘monks’ is because they had cloaks, brown cloaks, over their heads, so I couldn’t see their faces.”

“It feels like you’re in a gray room,” she said. “You know you’re in a room but you just don’t see walls. I remember that at a distance there was a row of – for lack of a better word – what looked like ‘monks.’ There was a row of them going from right to left. It kind of looked like a procession. The reason I’m saying ‘monks’ is because they had cloaks, brown cloaks, over their heads, so I couldn’t see their faces.

“I wanted to get closer to see what they looked like. When I started moving closer, I actually ‘felt’ a warning to stay away. Being who I am, I wanted to get closer anyway. Some of us don’t learn. So I moved a little closer and I felt the warning much stronger that said to ‘stay away.’ I tried moving closer anyway, because, again, it’s just me.”

After this last attempt to move closer, the warning to stay away suddenly had more meaning.

“All of sudden I realized that I didn’t know who I was,” Maria said. “Not only did I not know my name or who I was – I thought, okay, if I look down at my body I will see who I am. I looked down and there was nothing there. I panicked because, on top of everything else, now I didn’t even know my gender. It scared me so much that I popped right back into my body.

“If something happens and you get scared,” she explained, “or you’re in danger, you will automatically snap back into your body. It’s not like you’re going to die. You automatically snap back. But the first time, that’s what happened to me. I still don’t know who [the monks] are. It hasn’t happened again. But it was really, really scary.

“And after a couple of months of calming down,” she said, laughing, “I’ve been doing it ever since. I’ve never again run across the monks. But I could definitely ‘feel’ a warning. It wasn’t a threat. It wasn’t that I was in danger. It was just a warning not to get closer. Since then I’ve learned that if you’re seeing something at a distance, you really can’t get much closer. Because the closer you start to get, it just disappears and you come back. I think some of it could just be a survival instinct. On the other hand, when we have experiences like that, we tend to learn from them and try to do a little better with that.”

HOW-TO BOOKS OF THE SUPERNATURAL KIND

Visit Maria’s website at http://www.mariadandrea.com to get a detailed rundown of the services she offers and the numerous books she has authored over a lifetime of psychic adventure and exploration. She has definite ideas about the pragmatic nature of her literary output.

“First of all, all my books are really How-To books,” Maria explained. “They’re not about my life. It’s not vain. It’s all How-To, so that people can do things for themselves. Because I truly believe that the more you can do for yourself, the better the world gets. Basically, if you know the technique, pretty much everybody can do it. A lot of it has to do with going out-of-body.”

There are numerous ways to achieve an out-of-body state, such as by using meditation or specific types of crystal and copper in various setups and combinations.

“When you’re dealing with that,” Maria said, “what people forget about is that it’s basically about how to navigate the energy streams. So, when you’re going out-of-body, there are different waves or different levels of energy. And interdimensionally, the only difference between our dimension and another dimension is the rate of vibration per second of the energy.”

vibrations

“The only difference between our dimension and another dimension is the rate of vibration per second of the energy.”

This difference in the rate of vibration is why some things are visible to us in the physical realm and some are not. It also explains why something may appear only temporarily to us, because the vibration of the energy from another dimensions is just momentarily in synch with our own before reverting back to its own dimension. To reinforce this idea, Maria points out that, in real-world physical terms, we know a spectrum of colors exists that is far outside our human ability to perceive them. Even though we don’t take them in with our eyes, they are nevertheless truly there.

“So, when you’re dealing with out-of-body,” Maria continued, “or when you’re dealing with traveling through time and through space, essentially you’re putting yourself into alignment with the vibrations of the energy on that interdimensional edge. The difference is, sometimes we do it consciously and sometimes we don’t. I do feel that we’re always under our own control. And that’s a very big factor. People get very nervous about some of these situations.

“The first thing I always teach is,” she cautioned, “with anything someone is ever going to try spiritually, on the paranormal level, psychically – on any of those levels – the first thing they must do is learn psychic self-defense. Because you need to be safe. I look at it as ‘electricity.’ You don’t see electricity but you also don’t put your hand in the socket. It’s a matter of understanding the laws of the universe.”

Psychic self-defense involves various rituals, spoken prayers and visualizing oneself surrounded by heavenly white light. The important thing is to be aware of one’s rights as a mortal creature who need not fear the spirits on the other side even if the entity one has contacted reveals itself as negative and malevolent.

 TIME TRAVEL IS THE WAVE OF THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE!

Time is more fluid than we may realize.

Maria also has her own perspective on the phenomenon of time travel.

“We have a specific time that we look at, whether we’re doing rituals or anything else,” she said. “And the reason is that we need the ‘time construct’ in order to have the necessary mental perception to function in the physical world. So we have ‘time,’ but they do not. When you’re dealing with spirits or aliens or any form that is interdimensional, they don’t have the same outlook on time as we do.”

The first step to genuine time travel is to learn to travel out-of-body and therefore outside of time itself as well. Just like the benevolent spirits we may contact on the out-of-body plane, we also are not limited by time or space.

“We are actually masters of time,” Maria declared. “People just don’t realize that because they don’t know the technique. I do like to get people to understand how to work interdimensionally because we’re really not alone.”
