Flying Discman from MarsIntroduction

The world needs to put UFOs and Ufology in a radically different perspective. As a culture it is at least as important as the drawings of Piranesi or Michelangelo, or the paintings of Dali or Chirico. What we get from such precious things we can get from the story-architecture of Ufology, which is now an essential part of our postmodern Imagination. Even in the kitchens of the most ardent sceptic there will be some item which owes its shape and character to the UFO, now a big prime-time star in the postmodern universe. As a Big Star, the UFO is as unavoidable as are Elvis Presley, Monroe, Michael Jackson, or the idea of quantum entanglement.

Ufology turns even downright imposture into a species of postmodern art form, showing that the mechanical truth of a story is something of a decoy.

What matters is that the tale is told complete with all its faults and deceptions and the supposed framework of its truths and lies. Any story bar-codes us forever. Despite our acceptances and rejections, we play with story games, we rehearse them, add new episodes even to absurd claims, and despite ourselves again, we continue and develop even the most dubious episodes, whether they are junk theatre or not.

Alfred Webre on Telepathy and the Oil Spill:

“ Examiner.com has documented the operational existence of Tesla-based teleportation as an operational technology for transporting goods and people over distances in the classified U.S. defense projects. Likewise preliminary evidence has established the existence of U.S. space vehicles using anti-gravity energy and other advanced propulsion systems.  
The U.S. government has historically classified teleportation exclusively as a weapons technology, for transporting troops to battle locations, or personnel and goods between secure military bases.
The environmental, economic and social impacts of the BP oil leak operation may mobilize public awareness and political will to transform this policy decision, and make teleportation available for civilian use, worldwide.
How the BP oil leak operation may affect extraterrestrial disclosure, either by governments or by specific extraterrestrial civilizations themselves, is an unknown “wildcard.”
One researcher has taken the view that a grey and reptilian-based extraterrestrial hyper-dimensional alliance is concerned about humanity because of our propensity to environmental degradation. The researcher highlights an environmental catastrophe as the trigger for open relations between humanity and the greys and grey-human hybrids. He states, “If these accounts of salvation are true, then the aliens’ message is clear: After the catastrophe, whatever it is, takes place, the late-stage hybrids and perhaps the aliens themselves will engage in a general integration into human society. As one hybrid told [contactee] Claudia Negron, ‘Soon all life will be changed. People will be different.’ Presumably, we will all live in peace and harmony. The environment will be healthy and there will be no more war or conflict.”
This Examiner.com article examines whether the BP oil spill operation is likely to accelerate disclosure of teleportation, anti-gravity energy and/or the extraterrestrial and UFO presence.”

About Webre’s book “Recovery,” his wife writes:

“I see this book as a journey and as a work of courage. Alfred Webre is my husband and soul mate. Through the time we’ve spent together I’ve watched him wage a battle, sometimes fierce and unsettling, with the mental illness that has plagued and enriched his life. At the depths of one of his depressions I suggested that he update one of his books, “The Age of Cataclysm” and perhaps write a book on his personal journey through manic-depression. My thinking at the time was he needs something to focus on and give him some purpose. That was in July shortly after “God” died and left Alfred both, devastated and exhilarated. He and I had been working together to come to grips with his attraction to cults and to move into a state of recovery. This was a task I felt well prepared for as I had done a great deal of “exit therapy” over the years with a variety of cult members.”

In other words, Alfred Webre had to be deprogrammed by his wife. He should go down on his knees and thank the gods that it wasn’t his mother-in-law.

Pushing the Envelope

First, let us get rid of any idea that Alfred Webre is insane. As a brilliant man with a rather battered but ofttimes equally brilliant public record, he knows exactly what he is doing. The same could be said of his colleague Michael Salla, another clever man who has been thrown out of many academic posts because of his views on the supposed presence of extraterrestrial aliens and their influence on human culture.

First let’s take a look at the backgrounds of these two men:

Alfred Webre is the author of Exopolitics: Politics, Government and Law in the Universe. He is a Fulbright Scholar and holds degrees from Yale University, Yale Law School (Yale Law School National Scholar), and the University of Texas Counselling Program. He has taught Economics at Yale University (Economics Department) and Civil Liberties at the University of Texas (Government Department), and has been a futurist at Stanford Research Institute.

As Senior Policy Analyst in 1977 at the Center for the Study of Social Policy at Stanford Research Institute (now “SRI International”, Menlo Park, California), Webre was Principal Investigator for a proposed civilian Scientific Study of Extraterrestrial Communication, that is interactive communication between the terrestrial human culture and that of possible intelligent non-terrestrial civilizations. Webre is the only Exopolitician with such views to get near the White House. This proposed Study was presented to and developed with interested White House staff of the Domestic Policy staff of President Jimmy Carter during the period from May 1977 until the fall of 1977, when it was abruptly terminated. The Carter White House denied Exopolitical studies see http://www.ufoevidence.org/documents/doc944.htm

Dr. Michael E. Salla has held academic appointments in the School of International Service, American University, Washington DC (1996-2001), and the Department of Political Science, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia (1994-96). He taught as an adjunct faculty member at George Washington University, Washington DC., in 2002. He is currently researching methods of Transformational Peace as a Researcher in Residence in the Center for Global Peace (2001-2003) and directing the Center’s Peace Ambassador Program which uses transformational peace techniques for individual self-empowerment. He has a PhD in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an MA in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia.”

Those folk with a still-intact sense of wonder might try these following two pieces of work for size, from Webre and Salla respectively. We note that the first contains a failed prophecy, and the second absolutely spectacular bullshit. The only good thing that can be said about these opinions is that they represent a new kind of what used to be called Theatre of the Absurd.

Extraterrestrial False Flag Operation.

“A whistleblower has recently emerged alleging secret preparations are underway for a false flag operation to justify a military response to “alien invaders” by August 2007. The whistleblower claims that s/he was asked “to write up ‘spin’ and propaganda that would help win the country’s leaders over to our new ‘war effort'” against extaterrestrials. The whistleblower posted his/her message at the Above Top Secret forum and has generated immediate interest by many (see: http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread288370/pg1 ). While the whistleblower’s statement appears plausible at first hand, there really is little need to demonise extraterrestrials to justify a false flag operation if an upped military response is desired by those in control of extraterrestrial related information. The extraterrestrial abduction literature is so pervasive and dominant in UFO studies that it has created a set of powerful cultural stereotypes of extraterrestrials. The primary stereotype is that of advanced “alien geneticists” performing a range of invasive medical procedures to abducted women with the aim of creating a future hybrid race to replace current humanity.”

And here is Salla:

An Exopolitical Perspective on the Preemptive War Against Iraq

“The political paradigm to be used in this paper is based on ‘exopolitics’. This paradigm starts with the premise that there exists an extraterrestrial (ET) presence on Earth which clandestine government organizations have been withholding knowledge of from the general public and elected public officials. Rather than being an unsubstantiated ‘conspiracy theory’ with little relevance to contemporary policy issues such as a pre-emptive US war against Iraq, it will be argued that an exopolitical analysis can provide a more comprehensive understanding of what motivates the Bush administration in launching a pre-emptive attack against Iraq.”

http://www.nwprogressive.org/weblog/2008/07/local-conservative-think-tank-spokesman.html

The single word “futurist” in Webre’s curriculum vitae is enough to sow suspicion that Exopolitics is a structured collection of synthesised nerve-centre memes, no less. It might just have occurred to a very clever chap such as Webre are not getting to the top by pre-digital frontal assault, why not, using the new technological means available after Jimmy Carter’s Presidency, make a meme-borne worm which will do the job?  After all, knocking on the doors of Authority is a pretty old-fashioned very non-futurist and largely non-productive action.

Now here is where the plot goes deep, dirty, and suspicious.

Webre was (is) an acknowledged futurist. He has been in that game far longer than many senior Ufologists, and as a futurist he would necessarily have been completely familiar with the work and ideas of Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller, to name but two influential futurists. From Scientology to modern Consumer theory, from Artificial Intelligence studies to the work of Ray Kurtzweil, it has been suggested that it might be possible to model entire brains and indeed entire worlds in terms of Product modelling. This expresses the idea of a culture rising from a basic kit of archetypes, reminiscent of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein.

Her idea is now fully realised in the DNA lab.

But after his (understandable) failure at the White House, Webre might just have asked himself could the same principles be realised in terms of those particular ideas which form belief structures?

Now it so happens that both Webre and Salla are very clever meme engineers. Just like L. Ron Hubbard who created Scientology, Webre and Salla went on to create  a synthetic mythology which, as we shall see, rivals Scientology somewhat in its aims and practices. Their work is interesting if only that it shows how the structure of Web-born mimetic worms may be designed. Such worms have viral properties which can be seen quite clearly in the psycho-social culture dish. In this sense they are “intelligent” forms of non-carbon life, just as is an image in our heads of Marilyn Monroe, or any one other of millions of such sparkling harpies.

Exopolitics represents no less, a new form of viral programming. This can easily evolve into a new form of social control. It consists largely of fantasy and entertainment whose image-based symbolic structure is easily manipulated by Big Media and rampant Consumerism as regards exploitation of belief.

Such “intelligent” forms of dosed information are easy to insert into a dumbed-down society whose media-soaked heads are on the verge of cultural disintegration. For example, we might look at Sergeant Stone’s “57 varieties of Extraterrestrial Alien” on http://www.combat-diaries.co.uk/diary30/heinz.htm

Looking at them as new kinds of cyber-animal, we might ask how do these worms “think?” To answer this question we must get rid of almost every single idea concerning so-called “Artificial Intelligence” we have ever had. We should also throw out all ideas about what is termed “communication theory.” Present ideas concerning robotics and automation are based on accretion of mechanical complexity. What we call “thinking” here is represented by the active “recognition” of “factual” elements and the integration of this into other programmed vectors formed by paradigms based on mechanised input and output schedules. The result is nothing more than a collection of clever spanners.

Our Exopolitical Webot is a very different creature which can create parasitical image-forms in the imagination of willing customers.

As I showed in my article “Meme Wars we Have an Agenda” the Web has given birth to many digitised forms of non-carbon life which do not think in terms of mechanical analogues. It might depress serious Left-intellectuals and Guardian-style social-democratic liberals, but our déclassé Exopolitical Webot here “thinks” like a Tesco manager or his Walmart equivalent. As such managers know, quantities and “facts” come very much second to image appeal. Customers will accept and buy inferior goods if they have the right image. Therefore we are all consuming the image as well as the food, which becomes a somewhat secondary thing. In the case of Exopolitics, our highly structured Webot has succeeded in inserting a parasitical form of image-life into many minds. Again, as the managers of the silver screens know, manipulation is all about images. Like Marilyn and the host of other harpies like her, our Exopolitical worm is a fast breeder, and like her again, it has an infinite longevity. Should we not believe that, we should try getting rid of Marilyn in the head. It is impossible. Like her or hate her, she is there forever. Despite ourselves, we act and talk with her, we will write for her, produce films and plays for her, and we will dream of her as if we were sixteen again and a hustler on the make looking for the best chance.

This Marilyn pseudo-world will be experienced in the fragmented forms of dreams, intuitions, and what the playwright Eugene Ionesco called nostalgia mysterieux.

Together with many others like her, she will pursue us beyond our deathbed.

Marilyn, like the synthetic body of Exopolitics, is a worm.

Though she has been inserted as a fast-breeder programme by a very different technology to that of Exopolitics, the principle is the same. The inserted images will breed as self-replicating clones and any “facts” will fall away like supports from a newly-launched ship. Such multi-dimensional worms are image-based programmes with Matrix-style optional sub-texts. They can be designed to insert any particular target programme into Prime Time conscious and form an important focus of Mind. The result of such operations is the Exopolitical (supposed) alien, who is now no less a “star” than Marilyn Monroe.

By analogy, such an extraterrestrial alien is now a possible worm in the liminal stage of embryonic development. Like Monroe, Michael Jackson or Elvis, the alien is now neither real nor unreal. In terms of Big Media product-gestation, the extraterrestrial alien is under construction.

This idea gives an entirely new meaning to the concept of “disclosure.” For “disclosure” we may now read collective “sanction.” In the manner of TV soap development, in 2010 we now allow things to happen in such series which if they had happened in 1950s would have sent us straight to the hangman’s noose.

Therefore the answer to physicist Enrico Fermi’s question “where are they?” is: “the alien is under construction.”

In the Fortean sense, this new paradigm replaces absolute fact versus absolute fiction with scales of permissibility controlling schedules of allowances.

The Dialectic

Some parts of the operational technique used by our Exopolitical Webot remain somewhat old fashioned. They reflect elements picked up from the psychological tactics of dialectical materialism, no less. These Cold War Communist tactics (also used by Maoist China) were based on rebuilding commonly received dictionaries in heads, see Orwell’s idea of “Newspeak” in the novel 1984.These programmes (and dictionaries were the very first cultural “programmes”), contained certain words which were picked from a very narrow range of reference. These new word-groups formed a mantra, and the repetition of some kind of mantra is to be found in every world religion and every political philosophy.

The object of this technique (see The Manchurian Candidate) is to change the very metaphorical frame of perception by introducing a new narrative with a new and complete vocabulary. Thus we go from the holiness of the proletariat to fully conscious praise of the extraterrestrial alien and the wonders he is bring to Earth culture. We can see this technique in operation in the passage from Salla quoted above. He goes from perfectly ordinary discourse smoothly in the new “alien” narrative as if he is talking to a neighbour over the garden wall about the differences between cabbages and turnips. Thus is a seamless robe constructed, and utterly fantastic elements inserted into common dialogue with no bother at all. It is matter of dialectical scaling. By reducing anomalies to “ordinary” terms we can more readily introduce them into consciousness without any blood flowing at all.

People who lived in Germany in the earliest years of the Hitler regime reported on the sudden appearance of the word “Jew” in any and every kind of conversation. As distinct from Exopolitician David Icke (who IS racist!), there is absolutely no evidence that either Webre or Salla are racist or anti-Semitic in any way. However, they do wish to change the narrative in a way which might have been admired by a severally reconstructed Dr. Goebbels. Certainly Webre and Salla would both love to see the word “alien” used on all of the major Big Media networks alongside the “news” about the economy, sports and cooking tips. For example, the word “gay” has moved into prominence in the same way.

Thus do we demythologise as much as we mythologize in turn according to programmable allowance-schedules.

In these terms, our extraterrestrial alien is already knocking on what Aldous Huxley called The Doors of Perception.

The God-Agenda

Our Internet-born,  Exopolitical Webot is of a somewhat “scientific” nature. Both Huxley and Orwell described “scientific” attempts to change popular consciousness. In Orwell’s novel “1984” (pub. 1949), Big Brother interrogator O’Brien has to threaten Winston Smith with physical torture in order to make him toe the party line. We suppose that this meant that ironically, Orwell’s “scientifically” constructed Newspeak (again suspiciously similar to Scientology) was a failure. By contrast, in “Brave New World” (pub. 1932) Huxley proposed that what he called the “pleasure principle” would be far more effective than physical threats.

Huxley’s prophecy was the better one. He was the first to suggest that god-programmes could be manufactured by mass media.

Creating a Maker is of course an art form and not everybody can do it, but basically constructing a god-agenda is fundamentally no different to designing a good TV commercial break. Off-the-shelf components can be used, and the art of god-making is rather like the art of good cooking: you have to get to get the right things in the right proportions at the right time and temperature.

First to make your god (and the extraterrestrial alien is now an acknowledged god within Exopolitical belief), you must narrow the general vocabulary of the target audience. Second, you must tune this vocabulary to refer only to a certain chosen range of products, whether they be Jesus or tins of baked beans.

Cults (and Exopolitics is very much a cult) wilfully attach themselves to these specific vocabularies as articles of Faith. They cling to them as mediaeval pilgrims once worshipped what they supposed were pieces of the True Cross.

In the case of Exopolitics, the “products” of our psycho-social filter are such Prime Time words and phrases as  “airbase,” “nuclear,” “cover-up,” “space, ”abduction,” “whistleblower,” and (of course) “Intelligence Services.” Such words and phrases form a mantra group within the cult of Exopolitics. Additionally, the acronyms CIA, NSA etc form part of an integrated ritualistic emblem around which Exopolitical belief is structured. Such trigger-words induce the gestalt-rites of that particular mysterium called the Military-Industrial-Complex.

When we look at the collage (above) of the Twin Towers ablaze, we can see metaphorically that it was “made” of trigger-words within product emblems as well as your rationalist’s beloved end-stopped bricks and mortar.

Webre, like almost every UFO investigator sooner or later refers to the Pentagon and major US corporations very much as if they constituted such an  emblematic mysterium, which is a kind of technological shrine from which all knowledge flows. Like Stanton Friedman or Bruce Maccabee, having worked at Boeing, Northrop-Grumman or in the US Navy optical science division is a priestly credit-card flash as regards that Prime Time level  called “authenticity.” The Military-Industrial Complex becomes therefore a complete parallel to any kind of temple of worship in history, a veritable Gnostic temple where shadowy archetypal rituals supposedly take place. Thus NASA or Area 51 becomes identical to Kafka’s Castle, or Mervyn Peake’s Ghormangst Trilogy.  For example, Stanton Friedman (the original Victorian Station Master), uses the phrase “nuclear physicist” as a badge of honour, even though he has not done any nuclear physics for nearly forty years, and even then he didn’t do much. Nuclear physics of course is an essential part of any standard physics course at any standard University, so saying that you are a “nuclear physicist” doesn’t mean a lot. But in the world of Big Media that doesn’t matter. This is the way any culture evolves. It is all about images which control the game-play of the silver screens of the so-called “factual” world which is but a necessary stabilising component within our tempestuous realisations.

The Exopolitical propagandists know this only too well.

Let’s look at the dialectical fabric of the top passage from Webre again: the first two paragraphs contain quite a collection of buzz-words and muscular cartoon gosh-golly phrases familiar to all trendy toy-designers, janitor-abductees, retail-Ufologists and all others afflicted by the Thunderbirds-style aura. We know that as soon as we hear of “Tesla-based teleportation,” “classified U.S. defense projects” and “anti-gravity engines,” that we are in the familiar world of Exopolitics. Metaphor falls upon us “Thick as Autumnal Leaves that strow the Brooks In Vallombrosa.” There is not even time to gulp or gasp, or say “‘oil give it foive” before we head for the door of the glittering Exopolitical Emporium with stars in our eyes with a new hi-tech boxed game under our arm. What have we bought? We have bought a bundle of powerful skilfully-engineered totems, no less. But don’t worry – the same thing happens when we buy a magazine with Megan Fox on the cover, or a pack of Post-Toasties, called originally “Elijah’s Manna” – now there’s a good one for the eschatological conspiracists!

In these terms even Stanton Friedman is best seen as a rich glowing Meccano-set superliminal text rather than a discursive discourser. Generally speaking, such “scientists” are beginning to look like worn-out refugees from old East Germany covered in engine-rust and looking lost in a world in which their culture has become very much a poor second compared to Big Media.

The Fatal Attraction

Of course we can’t help but buy Exopolitical sweetmeats as offered. The packing and presentation would make any Tesco manager proud. They are all irresistibly sexy, and every with-it author knows that implicit eroticism and glossy technology make a powerfully attractive mix. With such shaky assurances from the cultural commercial breaks, we are young again that is until we encounter Webre’s second paragraph above. This puts a bit of a shadow over the glowing promises:

“The U.S. government has historically classified teleportation exclusively as a weapons technology, for transporting troops to battle locations, or personnel and goods between secure military bases.”

Wow! What kind of a world are we in here? Open the box. Origami snowflakes representing wondrous speculations burst in our head. We are in a world where there are almost no rules, a world in which we can say anything at all, just like at the old hippy be-ins or group-gropes of the 1960s. A bus is a moth; a cake is a spaceship. Past and future have no meaning; time and endeavour swerve and loop-the-loop. For a short time, we are in get-happy free-fall; this is hardly disturbing we say, because after all, this is how poetry is created.

But then we surely begin to get a little worried as the so-called “real world” makes a somewhat outrageous entrance:

“The environmental, economic and social impacts of the BP oil leak operation may mobilize public awareness and political will to transform this policy decision, and make teleportation available for civilian use, worldwide.”

Webre then goes on to claim quite seriously that:

“…the BP oil leak operation may affect extraterrestrial disclosure, either by governments or by specific extraterrestrial civilizations themselves, is an unknown “wildcard.”


GremlinWild is the word. Our boxed game is now rather like the Gremlins 1 film, with somewhat comic monstrosities bursting through all the cultural screens.

The “grey and reptilian-based extraterrestrial hyper-dimensional alliance” no less will arrive to save us and (as expected), the old New Age hippy messages appear:

“After the catastrophe, whatever it is, takes place, the late-stage hybrids and perhaps the aliens themselves will engage in a general integration into human society. As one hybrid told [contactee] Claudia Negron, ‘Soon all life will be changed. People will be different.’ Presumably, we will all live in peace and harmony. The environment will be healthy and there will be no more war or conflict.”

That any exterritorial aliens may turn out to be super-hippies is optimistic, as Hawkins has pointed out. What Keat’s “Stout Cortez” did to the Amerindians is yet another warning.


Charismatic Soap Bloodlines

Thus in one sentence does Webre try to introduce a new historical narrative full of alien-induced sweetness and light. The shock here is rather like one of those terrifying moments when you meet someone with an over-specialised ferocious intention in life. All such cult converts come out with some highly propagandized cosmic “explanation.” Now it is the extraterrestrial alien! Pubs and bars always contain such damaged banner-waving pariahs. In the old days they spouted Marxism or the Bible or some other cult-coded formulaic “solution” to Richard Adam’s “Life, the Universe and Everything.”

Today old-fashioned “hard” politics have almost gone from the streets. Now an innocent gets pinned against a wall and instead of being told to read the Life of Lenin, they get lectured on the infinite details of junkpop, from Lily Allen’s toe-nails to Michael Jackson’s child-molestations and suppurating cheek bones. A similar hazard of the modern world is to meet some “scientific” person with a Rubik Cube in his hand who talks about “scientific breakthroughs,” or encounter a brilliant and beautiful girl who talks about Cliff Richard’s musical “achievement.” Far worse is to meet a similar creature you fancy who wants to “free” the “poor people” (usually African) by the universal application of Science, Democracy and Socialism. If you haven’t met one of those particular animals, you haven’t lived. Should their shadow fall across your path, any would-be erection vanishes like the proverbial rat up a drainpipe, and you fly home to see which “personality” has been thrown out of the Big Brother House. In this sense, it must be admitted that the Big Media idea of the Universe as Junk is a marvellous antidote against those who have dangerously serious designs upon humanity at large. “Junk” in this sense means that almost everything (including Science)  is now all about styles and images, fashion and Big Media.

TV as the ultimate in Junk Culture has not “done” either Exopolitics or Ufology yet, but then TV gets to everything in time, so watch out – Webre’s astonishing Junk revelations may be waiting for the Big Media version of Exopolitical world history.

The old-fashioned “trip” has undergone reconstruction several times over through generations to become a powerful Big Media tool.

In these terms, Exopolitics represents the ultimate in postmodern consumerist hallucinations. It represents the fine art of creating Junk Culture using over-earnest inspirations concerning such things as the wondrous postmodern collage of Area 51, the story of Roswell and the MJ-12 Papers, the latter now worth about as much as a Bingo-caller’s hernia.

The source of such divine comedy is of course the confusions, misidentifications and absurd expectations made by all human beings when they are gripped by that quite impossible mode called the thinking process. We deceive ourselves even with the intention of scratching our nose.

All cultures are built of advertisements and deconstruction can point to those best-selling miracles of liberating laughter by means of which we mentally navigate.

Me Gone Cargo

The above passage from Webre shows that human cultures are formed and controlled by different kinds of story-technology, such as the “alien” narrative. Some of these story-memes are fantastic and hilarious, others mundane and rational. These “core stories” are totems, these being defined as those sets or clusters of forming principles by means of which human groups organise themselves around some central core of Belief, either mechanical or abstract. As such, totems are pure media manifestations wilfully induced by strong historical conviction as regards religion, royalty, racial/social class /bloodlines/extraterrestrial aliens, or indeed genuine mystical experience. Totems have the widest possible variety of forms: they vary from Christian Cross-worship to virtual worship of TV soap opera characters and glamorous performers in Pop, such as Michael Jackson (RIP), our nearest Western approximation to a god.

Death of course doesn’t matter to a god. We now await the first miracles from Neverland. True to god-like form, and rather like George Adamski’s Orthon and Jesus indeed, both Jackson’s brain and body appear to have vanished completely. Like Jesus again, Jackson has been “seen” in many places, from British fish-and-chip shops to brothels in Las Vegas. That is some Prime Time. Like the extraterrestrial alien, and the “scientist,” Jackson is now passing through the metaphysical stages of the great Consumer Book of the Dead.

Thus our totem can be deeply mystical (belief in a “real” god), or physically ritualistic as with identification with a particular football team.

Like Jackson, the extraterrestrial alien is such a god-form. He is noised poised between Fact and Fiction with the Exopoliticians trying desperately to push the envelope and make him appear everywhere, from fish-and-chip shops to CNN news headlines.

As we have seen in Part 1, Exopolitics can be seen as a meme-formed web-born prototypal entertainment system. It is now steadily morphing into a consumer-led “cargo-cult” mystique, see “Deconstructing the B-29” in my article for UFO Magazine “Putting the Noise Back into the System” http://www.combat-diaries.co.uk/diary30/cargo%20cult%20belief.htm.

In terms of Consumer Anthropology, the pseudo-dead Michael Jackson’s fleeting pseudo-appearances represent the Myth of the Return. In a similar way, Exopolitics represents a “return of the gods” movement fashioned in modern Western terms.

The “aircraft” seen below fashioned by a cargo-tribe is completely analogous to the concept of retro-engineering technology from supposedly crashed UFOs.

Cargo CultsWhat are “cargo cults? After the island-hopping campaign against the Japanese during the Second World War, the America military left behind dumps of any and every kind of material on hundreds of remote islands. After over twenty years of almost no contact with the West, it was found by researchers that the natives had fashioned a religion around abandoned war material such as radios and aircraft parts. They constructed wooden aircraft in imitation of the “real” planes they had seen, and they whispered into the microphones of long-dead radio sets in the manner of “real” operators. In a few cases, some well-preserved batteries would flicker into life, and scrambled “static” sounds (including voice fragments) were heard momentarily from speakers. Trying to convince natives that they had not heard the voice of the “gods” was not a good idea. Since the natives had no such concepts of the levels of mechanical time, any attempted “explanation” that the fragmented voices they had heard were not from the past but  were “random” signals from the present, were ignored.

They were also absolutely fascinated by the labels on millions of abandoned food tins.

“Thus was formed a kind of participation mystique between the natives and the characters and fragments of cartoon lives seen on the cans and food packs. Given a raging war and surrounded by death, there was no one around to try and explain that this homely Norman Rockwell cartoon life portrayed by the labels had already disappeared from mainstream U.S. culture. The almost identical physical proportions of such food packs also aroused great curiosity amongst the natives. This was their first encounter with what we can define as a product range as distinct from a singular thing. Great numbers of almost identical things was a new concept to them.
To the natives, each unit of previous experience had a face, and a unique self and identity. Each individual leaf on a tree had a certain character, as had indeed every grain of sand on the shore. Yet paradoxically, though each of such tins might be identical on the outside, they had certain ranges of differences when opened.

This caused crises with the traditional framework of cognition. The link between uniform faceless precision and sets of different limitless variety was a strange enigma. Seen in terms of cultural time-differentials, the content of the cans represented sustenance and pleasure—the very essence of the subtle magic of cargo whose long-vanished product chain was organized by a transactional mystique just as incomprehensible -as indeed it still is- to most young Westerners of the time as it was to natives.

Illustrated printed material left behind caused further confusion. Ranging from instruction manuals to newspapers and magazines these images showed yet another America – gone were the beautiful blondes and the apple-pie kitchens and shiny technology: here were grim-faced young women working at lathes and milling machines in war factories.

In these terms, the commonly accepted “mechanically objective” real appears to be more like a kind of psycho-social plasma whose structure consists of time-shifted confusions rather than differentiated spines of fact versus fictions.”

I give these examples at length because it is important to realise that the whole and entire modern UFO situation can be extrapolated from these conditions. But generally speaking, Ufology ignores the cargo-cult analogy, if only because it does not put humanity in a very complimentary light. It violates also the “objective” absolute fact versus absolute fiction paradigm which has held Ufology in a stone-age grip ever since it began.

Transformations of the Real: The New Scripts

The ancient magical-participation concept of totem here is used as distinct from the more commonly accepted idea of paradigm, which expresses the idea of an objective intellectual and almost-conscious transformation of cosmology within a culture. The idea of the paradigm has a certain mechanically “scientific” ring of iron logic about it; it fitted the idea of change in a 19th/20th century society where all processes of thought and action had mechanical analogues possessing that time-vector called “moral progress,” whose “morality” usually took the form of slavery, genocide, racism, and environmental disaster. We need not fear the phrase “magical participation” if only because our world is run by magical systems: royalty, religion, Arts, Pop Culture and Big Media are all such forms of image-based participation in that they are not scientifically formed in terms of the concept of “objective fact.”

Nevertheless, people shape and run their entire lives and thoughts by means of such cultures.

Due to the power of Big Media (which has quite replaced the power of Big Brother in our own world), the image, not the fact, is now dominant: everything consists of scripts, acts and performances. Even the “scientists” can be looked upon as rather splendid pieces of baroque rationalist theatre, with their times and angles, charts and statistics. These look very much like the two figures in Hans Holbein’s painting, “The Ambassadors.” In this painting, there arrayed upon the table behind the two ambassadors are the “measuring” instruments of the deep past. These pieces of ancient technology were once articles of faith in a steady-state cosmos which once had that forward-moving time vector called Mechanical Progress, supposedly leaving behind a pit of fools and deluded madmen. We note the skull in the painting as an ironic comment.

The important thing to realise about totems is that they can be readily manufactured. We now have the Product as totem. These baubles, bangles and beads spring to life like Gremlin’s splashed with water. All our essentially postmodern forms of perception are formed by metaphors derived from the idea of the Product. The Product is a Big Brother cosmetic makeover: Orwell’s physically-threatening Hitler/Stalin faces on the screens in the novel 1984 have been transformed into the psycho-social elements of far more gentle techniques of mass-media persuasion, such as above. Such pop-art culture as Product is now the New Estate. Pop elements of all kinds form the sacred part of a transaction ritual, worshipped as once were bits of the True Cross, Proletarianism, Elvis Presley, the no-bra bra, the paperless office, or indeed the claims of MUFON Commissars. The Product as pop art initiates a cool form of cargo-cult inspirations. Each item is worshipped, salivated over like the Shroud of Turin, the MILF Palin, or the Tandoori wallpaper produced by the Hubble telescope.

Despite ourselves, we are “run” by such carefully-inserted image software, whether by  Exopolitics or some other form of Consumer-cult. As such, Exopolitics is such a modern embryonic totem. It is a cool-style form of consumer-inspired designer-led rtailed mystique. Gone from the ideas of “magic” or the “occult”are the unfashionable voodoo chants, juju incantations and tarantula dances of the pre-electronic Ages. Such traditional processing domains regarded as pure information are non-carbon-based life forms which are good at disguising themselves whilst engaged in fresh transformations of totem-mystique. In these terms, Exopolitics is a cleaned-up modern techno-ritual, similar to the “clear” ritualistic techniques of L. Ron Hubbard, but with one big difference: Exopolitics is manipulative image-based story-technology. In this it is far more powerful than anything purely dialectical. Using image structures, belief is always up for grabs. It can be designed, manufactured, packaged and sold in line with Pork Scratchings, Quantum theory, Lady GaGa or Santa Claus.

As a movement, this power makes Exopolitics into a far more interesting thing than being a simple net of very human lies, mental illness, disinformation or psychopathic paranoia. The Projects SERPO, UMMO and Project Camelot, see

Exopolitical manifestations represent the first big Web-borne modern god-agenda detected since the old analogue disasters of Jonestown or WACO. In this, Exopolitics is Web-borne meme-power with a vengeance.

Had he lived long enough, Michael Jackson for example might have gone in for Exopolitics in a big way if only he might have seen it as superb pop-art. As it is, there will be time for Madonna to abandon her Kabala for Exopolitics and for Lady GaGa to put Webre as a guru into her new video. Other personalities such as Christian fundamentalist Sarah Palin are but two cyber breaths away from Exopolitics. It will become eventually almost irresistible to many of those “personalities” who live already almost entirely in a Jackson/GaGa world.

This is just one of its manifold destinies.

The “facts” of the industrial mechanical world have no meaning within the body of Exopolitics, which contains descriptions of colonies of UFO-abducted Americans on Mars. Goebbels said: “repeat the lie often enough, and it will be accepted” – although the idea of Americans being transported to Mars by means of a DARPA-built time-travel machine might be have proved too exotic an idea even for Dr. Goebbels or Scientology.

The Manipulations

As a Shaman/Trickster/ Entertainment cult, Exopolitics is not above launching rather sinister manipulations using those who happen to have famous surnames, such as Laura Eisenhower. No boiling cauldrons, bats or conical hats of traditional witches – no, this is an art of the cool. Perception is being changed by the use of programmable story-technology.

Here’s how Laura Magdalene Eisenhower was targeted by the Exopolitical “Mars colony” project team, practising deep-fried juju:

“In her statement, Ms. Eisenhower details how Agent X, her principal “handler” from the secret Mars project, eventually confessed to her that “He knew a lot about me from numerous sources that overlapped with one another – from Freemasons, Knights Templar, to this hidden branch of the government that was behind creating this Mars mission. They understood me based on remote viewing and time travel devices and they also seemed to recruit people from the Freemasons and Knights Templar who were well aware of the Magdalene path. They seemed to all be connected, but someone was taking advantage of it all and trying to stay one step ahead of how nature may have unfolded as far as us coming together into Union. I did not know he was an agent until months into the relationship and I later found out that it was them who sent him to find me and it was all a set-up.”

Here’s another  typical victim of a very different type. This one is a similar victim of a different kind of imagist-Consumerism:

“My name is Jaye Beldo and I suffer from Advertising Affective Disorder, or AAD. My affliction results from life-long exposure to advertising. Ronald McDonald haunts me in my dreams and tries to get me to pledge allegiance to the New World Order. The Pillsbury Doughboy claims that he is the messiah and if I don’t worship him he will turn me into dinner rolls. Tony the Tiger waits in the shadows, ready to pounce on me as punishment for trying to think outside the cornflakes box. Palmolive Madge threatens to soak my entire body in dish detergent because I desire world peace. The Charmin Teddy Bear causes me to fight with my girl friend. Every time I try to go to an art exhibition, I see Mr. Clean splashing floor-cleaner onto a painting by Picasso or Van Gogh. Advertising mascots like Joe Camel, the California raisins or the Michelin Tire Man trespass into my brain and demand that I buy their products, or else. It doesn’t matter if the ad aired yesterday or 30 years ago because the icons, logos and jingles continue to torment me 24/7. My sense of time has become grossly distorted. Sometimes my attention span comes in 30 or 60 second ad spots.

Sometimes I wonder if I’m being targeted by the CIA. Or perhaps AAD is the result of some Psy-Ops experiment. Perhaps the NSA is behind it all. If so, I’d like to know who or what my handler is. Could only Madison Avenue know for sure? I believe AAD is a silent killer. If you think you are suffering from AAD, please contact me at the following address: stabinthelight@earthlink.net

Again, in a way similar to Scientology, such victims of both Exopolitical belief and Consumer belief will probably have to be deprogrammed, eventually. Both descriptions of experience sound like the results of an applied MKULTRA programme after being given a modern consumer-led eschatological makeover. The victims are being dosed as if by a re-vamped brand of metaphysical detergent. This is Huxley, rather than Orwell: no drugs, electric shocks or beatings, just an almost pleasant feeling of having lost a particular subliminal edit during a commercial break.

In this, Exopolitics has parallels with the Millennial and Rapture Cults of the deep past. One is also reminded also of the cut movements of Benjamin Crème, the Moonies and Hari Khristina cults. Though it is still too young in the cultural tooth to be regarded anthropologically as a genuine Western cargo-cult, this is almost certainly the final form of Exopolitics.

The God-Agenda

“I do not rely on (David) Icke’s work because he is not a credible source. He has taken some information about Reptoids from the work of Sitchen and others and mixed it with wild-eyed conspiracy theories so as to appeal to the broad and lucrative market of conspiracy buffs, information seekers, and racists. If you want to read about Jewish Reptilian banksters, and Reptilian English royalty dominating humanity, he’s your man. Were you aware that David Icke had a nervous breakdown on live TV in the UK and declared himself to be the son of God? He was banned from speaking in Canada because he is a known racist. The Grays came here and demanded the surrender. The Grays do not use humans as cattle per se. The Grays work for the Reptoids who do use us as cattle.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/prepare4contact/message/2525

The alien-creature situation as described here, though utterly fantastic, is localised in mundane space and time much as is a football match or a bus stop complaint about the weather. Note the precision, the assurance, the quite genuine honest tone. Take away the extraterrestrial alien theme, and the (published) author (obviously highly intelligent and in command of his subject), might well be addressing a sixth-form history class on Gladstone’s three Administrations, the financial reforms of Henry VII or the state of the Grand Fleet in 1914.  The whole set of ideas here is conceived as being unquestionably “real” as the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty. We note the truly marvellous accusation of falsehood:  Icke’s Reptoids are not quite bone fide. The assumption that one splash of non-existent water is quite different in character and substance to another splash of non-existent water is rather like the Zen illustration of one hand clapping, or the celebrated discussion about how many angels can stand on the point of a pin. Since we are all smears of live bio-paste clinging to a rock flying through space, such specialised distinctions are a wonder surely more great than those fantastical beings called Grays or Reptoids, quite equivalent to the mythological beings of legend such as the Griffin, Centaur, Unicorn, or indeed Anubis, the dog-headed god of ancient Egypt.

Similar statements can be found in the work of Webre, Salla, and Basaigo whose hat-trick is to travel to a supposed human colony on Mars using a secret DARPA time machine! We might add Richard Hoagland to this list, whose Hale Bopp space ship full of Reptoids detected heading for Earth was one of the great hoaxes of the past few years, and created quite a stir in the Ufological community. The only positive effect of this con-trick was to create a magnificent new kind of cosmic entertainment structure which may indeed have been the whole and entire aim of this particular Exopolitical enterprise. As every good manipulator knows, giving people pleasure and amusement is far more effective as persuasion compared to banging would-be consumers on the head.

The Fabricated Totem

The important thing to realise about totems is that they can be manufactured readily. Using modern Web techniques the meme may be seen as a cell of the Web cyber-animal. Using story-technology we can design the internal structure of such an animal, particularly in pop culture, see http://www.gcnlive.com/wp/2010/07/02/popular-music-is-the-babylon-system/

Having noted the certainty and assurance with which Exopolitical statements are made, the whole business smacks of the statements of people who have been subtly manipulated using story technology rather than the traditional manipulation of “facts.” In fairy lore they manipulators are the Tellers of the Tale or Narrators, whose tribal role is as old as Methuselah. Exopolitical experience has such a highly specialised structure drawn from quite specific archetypal image arrays, suggesting that such experience was (and is) indeed quite synthetic in nature. In addition, this particular experience is a thing which contains such manically intense deliberation that we might indeed ask ourselves whether such modern “visionaries” are part of some conspiracy which is trying to create no less a modern psychology of the unconscious involving actors from a highly specialised belief spectrum.

Given such thoughts, it could well be that Exopolitics is some form of hidden prototypal Scientological agenda. The presence of Scientologist Bill Ryan alone as a generating force within the rather goofy Exopolitical Project Camelot is somewhat suspicious. Both Bill and Kerry are friends of David Icke, which is even more suspicious. Every time I hear these names, I grow another pile or (worse), I think I am with Perry Como underneath the mistletoe. Project Camelot has “interviewed” more whistle blowing foil-hat human TV Dinners than Sainsbury’s has sausage rolls. In this sense, some would say that Project Camelot is a fraudulent circus full of lies, disinformation, and rigged impostures that make Webre’s “Seattle Politics Examiner” look positively respectable.

Of course the trouble with such radical accusations is that all thought processes contain such hilarious crap if only as a defence against taking life too seriously and killing our silly selves. We are therefore truly thankful that we can reasonably assume that in order to prevent suicides, any alien culture will contain as much pantomime garbage as Project Camelot. If so, we will have some wondrous existential reference problems to solve if and when aliens arrive. The prospect of one joke system trying to interpret another of the same ilk is interesting. Assuming the aliens have different cultural levels and each one has a joke system full of very different kinds of life-giving absurdity and nonsense-play, the possibilities for wondrous misinterpretation and truly marvellous confusion are profound.

Of course considering Project Camelot again, we might consider that the threat from aliens might not come from their intelligence or their technology but from their stupidity. The idea of an alien equivalent to Project Camelot must surely bring sighs of relief all round.

Scientology and Exopolitics

Though Scientology itself denies any connection with supposed extraterrestrial aliens (see (http://www.scientologymyths.info/aliens/do-scientologists-believe-in-aliens.php), certainly it is at least theoretically possibly that Scientology might well have thought of creating an entirely new Web-born face for its central concept of auditing. Auditing means quite simply taking the mind through a complex meditational calculus theoretically supposed to dump waste and extraneous noise and achieve a better mental focus and control of the thinking process. Similarly, Exopolitics leads us into a synthetic story-continuum of certain highly processed story-lines. Both processes are similar to the Communist dialectical process of politico-scientific indoctrination well described in the classic political novels of Orwell, Huxley and Koestler. In Koestler’s novel Darkness at Noon the basic psychology of Communist methods concerning change of psycho-social perception is outlined. In the case of Exopolitics, the first target-audience for this kind of updated story-technology was the Ufological audience, ever-ready for alien daring-do of any and every kind. In this they have become a host for parasitical meme-swarms of every kind.

In this respect, the whole framework of Exopolitics smacks of Scientological thinking in terms of analogies which might well have been borrowed from that latter culture. Exopolitics is certainly a similar attempt to manufacture a world designed (and design is the key concept here), to replace possibly a broad range of common experience as received au natural. As a postmodern movement, Exopolitics is certainly a lot more exciting than plain old Scientological “auditing,” which is the name of that apparatus for mental control constructed by Ron Hubbard (1911-1986), who was undoubtedly a genius of his day. Hubbard himself claimed always that Scientology was a religion, and certainly he managed to get it registered as a religion in the United States, if not in the United Kingdom. This meant of course that he was in the god-agenda business right from the beginning, with all that means regarding synthetic metaphysics.

Compared to MK 1 Scientology, Exopolitics is visual, dramatic, and perhaps Scientologists discovered Web possibilities from the very earliest days of Internet operation and had decided to construct Exopolitics as a new and exciting dimension of image-auditing suitable for a Web Age. It is possible also that due to the often comical claims and extreme radicalism of Exopolitics, that any New Model Scientology as it were would have to distance itself very much from the Old Model of 1952, which though somewhat digital in itself, was rooted in a pre-digital yesteryear and contained no visual dimension.

After the death of Hubbard, younger Scientological thinkers might have felt that it was time to move on from a rather rigid past. Perhaps such thinkers felt that the first decade of the new century needed visual systems rather than those based on print and literary forms.

It would not have taken a very bright creature such as Hubbard long to see that the emerging Age was going to be an experience based on images mounted by the rapidly increasing power of Big Technology and  Big Media. Despite some extremely objectionable personal characteristics, Hubbard might also have been bright enough to see that that Big Science (as General Groves of Los Alamos called it) might stumble alongside Big Media and be reduced to a technological support base for the mounting of powerful image-based theologies rather discovering “objective facts.” Thus possibly were the Scientological-cum-Exopolitical god-agendas constructed, if only by analogy.

The word “constructed” here is used because in the decade after the death of Hubbard the idea of constructing “imagined” worlds and inserting them into the running narrative of the core stories arrived. The idea was not new. Propaganda disguises itself, goes through its own propagandistic development. In the pre-digital world, we had plain “propaganda,” then “dramatised documentary,” and (a little later) a thing called “faction.” All these different experimental levels of electronic communication succeeded one another in a very short time due to the almost vertical acceleration of electronic progress.

With the appearance of the early Internet the concept of “disinformation” emerged, and the SERPO, UMMO and CARET memes appear, giving conspiracy theory a new name and a new Web-borne energy.

We now have Exopolitics as the latest version of a form of superluminal persuasion.

The Military-Industrial-Entertainment Complex

As an idea, mechanical “fact” as a measurable resource is now so beleaguered it is being forced to construct its very own fantasy Big Media agenda in terms derived mainly from the so-call “new cosmology.” Elements within this agenda are as fantastic as anything Salla, Webre or the good Dr. Boylan could offer. The CERN Collider is already producing as many metaphors as facts and as for Hawking’s Black Hole theology, it has to use the present tense to describe cosmic events, even though according to the generally accepted Theory of Relativity, the light from the nearest stars takes million of years to reach Earth. The Hubble therefore is taking pictures of events which may well have long ceased to exist!

The “fact” is that to use the correct past tense to describe cosmic events would be intolerably depressing. Readers should select a paragraph from Hawking and re-write it using the past tense, and they will see what is meant here.

This utterly absurd situation represents a dialectic crisis between brand-name mythologies rather than old-fashioned “objective science.” Hawking and his team of cultural propagandists are, no less, twisting both language and concept in order to give “information” about a cosmological state of affairs which no longer exists in what Big Media calls “real time,” a metaphysical joke if ever there was. They are using this falsehood to justify the continuation of a “measurement” culture which is just as fantastic a concept as any Exopolitical ideas about “communication” with alien spaceship full of Reptoids and Greys.

We may conclude therefore that language, communication and culture are essentially linked productions involving style and presentation as much as if they were on a fashion catwalk.

Thus under threat, the so-called “real” system as constellated has no qualms about programming counter-theatres which at a brief glance appear “authentic” if only because such supposed “real” systems have a hell of a lot more going for them in terms of being brand leaders in Prime Time. “Hard” truth is the usual metaphor used by “real” systems, just as Newton’s atoms were called “hard” before discovery of their electromagnetic interior and their Quantum characteristics.

Therefore the management of metaphor is very important as regards the formation of cultural mythologies. If we laugh at Exopolitics, we might bare in mind that the great institutions (Religion, Royalty, Glamour, Entertainment, Big Media, are all “false” in the sense that they are all based on powerful manipulations of a similar kind of double-think based on a form of irresistible non-sexual pornography.

The Entertainment Factor

The one good thing about Exopolitics is that it offers moments of high comedy. Here is noted blogger Dan Smith’s almost off-hand references to his “CIA handler.” This is straight out of a Tony Hancock script, leaving us to imagine Sid James’ response over the breakfast table in East Cheam. For the record here is the reply of the CIA handler concerned, one  Ron Pandolfi:

“Ever since I met Dan, I have consistently told him that I have absolutely no interest in his Jesus complex, UFOs, aliens, or eschatology. Yet he persists with the fabrication of a Ron & Dan show! Dan is a family friend, welcome for a barbecue and occasional outings. NOTHING MORE!” (email)

It appears that jokes about CIA “handlers” of various kinds and other creatures deep in the US Intelligence community have replaced old-fashioned “my psychiatrist” jokes. The joke line now is not “my psychiatrist told me,” or “I consulted my guru,” but “my CIA hander told me…” These references replaced old Radio and music-hall jokes about politicians, mothers-in-law, and the high prices charged by blacksmiths and horse fodder providers.

Dan is in trouble because old-fashioned Politics and Religion have gone almost entirely from meaningful modern thinking. Mass corruption and manipulated slaughter have shredded politics of all credibility and the Christian religion of whatever kind has vanished with the horses in the street. With Mysticism and the Occult beaten into a corner by the undoubted physical success of  Big Science, all that remains in Western society as a basis for what might be called “belief” is the scientific ideology of the military-Industrial-complex and its much-vaunted technology. According to scientific futurist Ray Kurtzweil, our future is essentially mechanical, consisting of an ever-accelerating vertical rise of product development, scientific “breakthroughs” and physical “improvements” of many a Meccano kidney.

But like most straight scientists, Kurtzweil appears not have reached even the TV Age yet, never mind the Web. Like most of his colleagues he thinks probably that TV is something to keep the kids quiet whilst he gets on with sorting out the “laws” of the “factual” and “real” Rules and Regulations universe, considered by latter-day Victorian Station Masters to be very much a non-moveable feast.

Apparently the absorption of billions of powerful images per second plays no part in modern “scientific” ideas of “causation,” which are still conceived as being essentially mechanical. As in the days of Victorian Station Master science, apparently to be “real,” one thing has to bang against another thing.

Any culture thrives by re-supplying a constant stream of system-gods, and this entails necessarily a good supply of good new god-designs. Replacement of such comically antiquated father-figures as the psychiatrist (or the economist) leads us to the central mystery of cultural formation. The “whistleblower” and the “secret insider informant” are just two of the many avatars which have replaced the guru, the saint, the priest, and many other discredited comic-book heroes and heroines of the deep past. For spiritual succour, we are left with the Pop Star and the Military-Industrial-Complex.

The Disclosure Movement  in particular and Ufology in general goes down on its knees asking for the slightest atom of revelation concerning the belief that this same said Complex holds the secret of the UFO. The scant bits and piece of UFO “evidence” are regarded as the modern equivalent to pieces of the True Cross in mediaeval times.

The truth is that the last big faith-based system, namely free-market Corporate Capitalism has failed us. It is now the turn of much-vaunted Big Science to fall flat on its face. Meantime, what Dan Smith and many other Disclosure types want is True Religion. But the Pentagon as Kafka’s Castle on the hill won’t give it to him, if only because most probably it doesn’t have all that much to give. Thus religious heat is projected into the mythological dark: “the beloved Authorities are keeping something from us” cry the spiritually-starved folk.

This participation mystique between actors and audience between Product and psycho-social Mystique here goes back a long way.  It smacks of political manipulations concerning tomb-mysteries, urn-burials, Christ-shrouds, and old bones in old caskets.

Allegorically, both Dan Smith and Alfred Webre are still on the road to Canterbury in 1380 with Chaucer’s pilgrims and their appetite for the latest products of the continuous-process Miracle Industry. There will of course be a few new arrivals on that road. The Scientist and the Exopolitical Ufologist will have made an historical appearance trotting on their horses alongside the Miller, the Reeve and the Wife of Bath. They will help extend and re-develop the mythology of Belief.

In the case considered here, in order to protect itself from the baffled UFO penitents, the equally baffled Priests of the Pentagon techno-mysterium will throw out a few crumbs occasionally to the pilgrims whilst it considers the situation and watches its back to cover itself should the “bugs” arrive. But even almost-real crumbs are rare and expensive, and so crumbs have to be manufactured. The sheeple, ever-grateful for any kind of crumb from the High Table, won’t bother about distinctions. They will willingly gulp down this very mixed diet, ever-grateful for even almost-sustenance. The word “almost” is a key word in these discussions. It keeps the sheeple salivating. Thus does the gaming situation appear within the controlled diet of different levels of managed perception.

Mirage Men by Mark Pilkington Covers UFO Manipulations


There are a lot of people who frequent the RU forums and the RU blog due to some of the conversations and emails we’ve uncovered by Ufology’s “usual suspects” – individuals that Bill Moore termed “the aviary” in the 1980s and who remain very focused and active in the field.

Research Into Scammer’s Inc.

There is a lot of speculation as to the motives of many of these men. There are conspiracy theories ranging from vast government disinformation campaigns to psychological research or even mental illness. Here at RU, we continue to accumulate information about their past and present activities, but the history is so deep and vast that collecting and sorting it out is quite a task.

One thing that does make the task easier is when fellow researchers, also studying this particular thread within Ufology, publish their own findings. For example, journalist Gus Russo wrote an interesting essay in 2007 that covered the gamut, but even Gus found himself left with more questions than answers.

The Publication of Mirage Men

Another upcoming publication by Mark Pilkington, titled Mirage Men, promises a great deal of insight as Mark details his efforts, alongside that of John Lundberg’s, as they interview these shadowy individuals and seek out answers amidst a sea of deception and manipulation.

As part of their investigations leading up to the publication of Mirage Men, Mark and John interviewed a number of folks, including even RU’s very own Stephen Broadbent who was interviewed on film. Much of the focus of their investigations were upon Rick Doty – and his photo appears prominently among the promotional materials…he clearly figures as a central character in the findings.

The book is slated for publication on July 29th, 2010, click the amazon link above and pre-order your copy. The link above is not an affiliate link – it goes directly to Amazon’s order page, so get your copy today!

Mirage Men Launch on July 29th

Mark’s blog has some great information and updates from the author himself!  Apparently there will be a launch event at the end of this month, on July 29th, near Russell Square tube in London. The event is open to the public and attendees will be treated to a “special preview of the [Mirage Men] film” – which, we are told, is a 10 minute clip from the interview with Rick Doty (of Serpo/MJ-12 hoax fame).

According to the publisher:

“As he crossed the US meeting intelligence agents, disinformation specialists and UFO hunters Pilkington was confronted with a dizzying array of ever more outrageous claims and counter claims. As a result he began to suspect that, instead of covering up stories of crashed flying saucers, alien contacts and secret underground bases, the US intelligence agencies had actually been promoting them all along. Meanwhile he has to deal with his own uncertainties, the suspicions of the UFO community and a partner who is starting to believe that conspiracy theorists might be right after all.”

The film should be interesting, but remember to take any conclusions with a grain of salt, unless of course there is solid evidence and supporting documentation to support it.

Best wishes and best of luck to our friend Mark Pilkington, and hopefully book sales will be brisk.

John Alexander – Mr. Non-Lethal With Many Hands in Many Pots



John Alexander

Rtd Col John Alexander. Copyright: Sam Morris, Las Vegas Sun


John B. Alexander. Who is this man? Many people have heard of him in different capacities and within different contexts. Some are aware of his technical work in the field of non-lethal weapons – in fact, he is a man who has been deeply involved within the military-industrial complex for many years. Other people know of him from his very early days in the U.S. Army from 1956 through 1988, when he finally retired as a Colonel.

The man is no slouch – having served time in Vietnam leading Special Forces teams. After the war was over, he worked his way up through the ranks until his last position as the Director at the Advanced systems Concepts Office under General Stubblebine.

As many people know, the Ufologist who was the original victim (or collaborator) of an elaborate effort to distribute MJ-12 documents upon the Ufology community was Bill Moore. Bill Moore eventually reported the names of all of his contacts during those MJ-12 years (1980s) in the form of his “Aviary” list of contacts. John Alexander was one of those contacts.

Coincidentially, John Alexander’s retirement from military/government work and his entry into private research at Los Alamos National Laboratory somewhat coincided with Hal Puthoff’s 1985 retirement from his Remote Viewing government contract and entry into private research at his privately owned research institute in Texas. Hal was also a member of Moore’s “Aviary” list of contacts. Coincidentally, Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green also retired from full time government work (CIA) in 1985 to enter into private industry as well, doing neuroscience work for General Motors.

At Los Alamos, Alexander began his work on Non-Lethal Defense technologies. Like Kit Green, he maintained contractual connections with government agencies, attended conferences and conducted briefings or talks for various U.S. Government and Intelligence organizations as well as collaborating and heading up various research endeavors with organizations throughout Industry and Academia. His non-lethal technology work is very public. He has wrtten articles in The Boston Globe and the Washington Post, and his work has been featured in publications like Scientific American, Wired and TV programs like CNN and Dateline. Now that you have an idea of the man’s public life, it’s time to dig deeper and explore into the man’s private endeavors that many people in the general public don’t know a whole lot about.

Dumpster Diving into Ufology

Like Kit Green and Hal Puthoff, John Alexander was listed by Bill Moore and others as a “U.S. Intelligence Contact” throughout the mid and late 1980s. Coincidentally, the public release of MJ-12 perfectly coincided with the military/government retirements of these men. What other evidence is there regarding the specifics of Alexander’s involvement with Ufologists during the mid to late 1980’s?

Once again, Bob Collin’s book Exempt from Disclosure leaks more information into the public domain that was previously hidden in secrecy, or at least obscurity. Also like Hal, Kit and most of Moore’s other contacts, Alexander has a direct connection to the parapsychology research that was ongoing within the military at the time. In particular, John Alexander worked under General Albert “Bert” Stubblebine III within INSCOM – looking for ways to improve the psychic performance of the military remote viewers.

In fact, according to “Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies”, by Jim Schnabel, Stubblebine signed contracts with the Monroe Institute to test various hypnosis techniques to enhance remote viewer’s performance.

The Turning Point – When Paranormal Research Results in Disaster


John Alexander (Los Alamos), Gordon Novel, and John's wife Victoria


In 1984, General Stubblebine sent an officer to the Monroe Institute for another “RV enhancement” test. According to one of our sources, the technique that the Monroe institute applied to this particular officer was one where all stimuli was removed from the environment. Clothes, lights or sounds were all removed, leaving the officer stark naked in a pitch-black room. The event led to the officer having a psychotic breakdown, and finally Stubblebine’s “retirement” in 1984.

We’re talking about a man, now featured in the major motion film “The Men Who Stare at Goats” as repeatedly attempting to walk through a wall, only to collide with it. We confirmed with several sources that this really took place.

What does all of this have to do with Ufology? Well, psychic phenomenon was not all Stubblebine or Alexander were interested in. In 1991, years after his retirement, Stubblebine, C.B. Scott Jones, and two Ufologists Victoria Lacas and Rima Laibow (who later became his second wife), traveled throughout Europe and the Soviet Union conducting research (and making contacts) into UFO and Psychic phenomenon there. Later, Stubblebine and his new wife Rima held “spoon-bending” parties for their elite friends and colleagues.

How much was Alexander involved with Stubblebine and C.B. Scott Jones in all of this research? Well, Victoria Lacas is now Victoria Alexander – John’s wife. Read Victoria’s comments about the film “The Men Who Stare at Goats.” In the 1990’s, John went on to work part-time for Bigelow-funded National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), alongside the usual fringe-research folks – Hal Puthoff, Kit Green, Kolm Kelleher and others.

And for those of you who thought Gordon Novel only recently popped up on the Ufology radar in recent years with his strange “RAM” project – take another good, long look at the photo above.

John Alexander and Ufology

On Page 8 of Exempt from Disclosure, under a section titled “Summits without the cocktails, the fall of 1986,” Collins writes:

“Ernie Kellerstrass had Bill Moore, Jaime Shandera, Hal Puthoff, Col. John Alexander (author of the book, Future War), Scott Jones (assistant for Senator Pell), and I over to his house in Beavercreek, OH (suburb of Dayton OH) for dinner. All of our meetings were very somber with most of us lookin glike stiffs right out of an “X-Files” show.”

At the time, Alexander was not yet retired, and still actively working on classified remote viewing work while taking part in these private UFO meetings. Given the ongoing activities, up to 2005 and beyond, of many of the individuals listed in this paragraph by Collins, we thought that it is very likely John Alexander is also still involved and active as well.

So, we decided to go straight to the horse’s mouth and ask John Alexander directly about these matters. His responses were interesting. The interesting part was more in what he chose not to answer, rather than what he answered.

The John Alexander Interview

Ryan: On Page 8 of Exempt from Disclosure, Collins writes: “[pasted quote above]” – Could you describe why you agreed to take part in this “summit without the cocktails” in 1986, with personalities like Kellerstrass and Ufologists Bill Moore and Jaime Shandera?

John: Don’t understand the question or context. Did meet him once. Certainly no summit.

Ryan: The context was a meeting in 1986 at Ernie Kellerstrass’ house in Beavercreek, Ohio – apparently to discuss some of Ernie’s stories related to UFOs. Again – could you describe why you agreed to meet with Ernie to discuss the topic? Did a friend invite you, or did Ernie himself?

John: Not sure – that was over 20 years ago and not of a great deal of importance.

Ryan: I know that you were involved (are involved) with non-lethal research, and back then it was just about a year or so from your military retirement and entry into private research. Your interest and involvement in the PSI field is well-documented (such as in your book and in the movie) – but I’m trying to understand why you were interested in UFOs and if there was some connection to your PSI work?

John: Am interested in many areas.

Ryan: On page 9, Collins describes a cloak and dagger operation where the members of the group he just outlined all traveled individually to meet with Executive Producer Seligman (the person who eventually produced “Cover Up Live” featuring Collins and Doty) in Dayton, OH at a secluded State Park. Did you take part in this operation to brief Seligman, and if so, why were you specifically involved and what did information did you plan to share with the Executive Producer?

John: No.

Ryan: On page 11, Collins describes yet another meeting in September of 1988 where everyone met in Albuquerque, NM to conduct interviews for the 1988 UFO show. Were you specifically interviewed by the producers of that show either at the Albuquerque interviews or at any other time or place? If so, can you share what information you provided to the producers and why?

John: No.

Ryan: Throughout the years, Collins consistently refers to a secret “Los Alamos” source who discusses UFO/Alien matters with him. Are you that source, and why?

John: No.

Ryan: On November 3rd, 2009, your wife, Victoria Alexander, wrote a review for the movie “The Men who Stare at Goats.” In that review she writes: “John was formerly with the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) under Major General Albert Stubblebine.” We’ve learned that previous to Bert’s retirement, the last incident that led to his departure was related to a case at the Monroe Institute where he subjected an officer to a particular treatment meant to increase psychic ability (we were told it was the removal of all stimuli) which drove the officer into a psychotic state.

Were these events taking place while you were working for Stubblebine – and can you share more details about the event and how it impacted your own personal beliefs and research related to PSI effects?

John: Yes, Pat was not wound too tight to begin with. TMI was a step too far for him, and he had missed the examination process that all of the other attendees went through. He recovered just fine. Bert didn’t, but that’s another story. Recommend you read The Warrior’s Edge. Most of the stuff I wrote in that book.

Final Words

I admit – the interview felt like it was a bit “lacking” in substance or openness. John was evasive and ignored a number of the questions – in a few cases the most important ones. John ignored the importance of that 1986 meeting that Collins described as involving the group of people Moore eventually identified as his list of contacts throughout the MJ-12 affair. The fact that Alexander was on that list, and here he was meeting with other folks related to the topic of UFOs, is very likely not lost on our more discerning readers.

In short, based upon a close review of his history, associates and which pots his hands are in, in combination with his brisk and evasive answers – I have to conclude that John Alexander is far more involved in these particular Ufology matters than he would like people to know about. I am now even more suspicious than ever before that John was one of the integral players in the distribution effort of the MJ-12 memes upon the public domain, starting in the 1980’s and continuing throughout the next several decades to today.

In time, through interviewing additional players, digging further into the background activities and events, and uncovering more about the interactions among the various players – we will be able to definitively prove or disprove that suspicion.

Gary Bekkum and Serpo: A Drama Queen Cannot Exist Without an Audience


binocularsTry as I might, I can never seem to get Gary Bekkum and his overdramatic boy-spy blog out of my life.  Just when we, at RU, think that he’ll be content publishing the same old baseless government conspiracy theories over and over – he throws a real doozy out there…a major faux pas manipulation of the truth that simply can’t go unfixed. As an organization that prides itself upon a “passion for truth,” such an outright abortion of the truth can’t go unanswered. What is this terrible thing? It’s a recent article Gary published at the American Chronicle, a cheesy small online publication that publishes user content from anyone who’s willing to write an article for free for them. In Gary’s recent article titled, “Spy Games Revealed: Spies, Lies and Polygraph Tape,” Gary weaves a very odd web – quoting out-of-context snippets from select email conversations between two friends who happen to be either current or former U.S. intelligence employees.

In this long, volumous article, Gary attempts to paint scammer Rick Doty as a “spy” of sorts – simply a scape goat as part of some sweeping government cover-up operation. The tale he paints is certainly dramatic (he is a drama-queen after all), intriguing, and unfortunately overwhelmingly baseless speculation that turns out to be nowhere near the target.

There are a few things people should know about the incident Gary refers to, where Ron and Green appear to be discussing the “SERPO” hoax.  The facts are as follows.

– Ron Pandolfi did not volunteer his time or attention to the hoax – he was contacted and drawn into it (possibly intentionally) by Dr. Green.

– Ron conducted an unofficial, brief query regarding a few alleged DIA names that Dr. Green told Ron Pandolfi might be relevant and important.

– In the course of trying to ascertain where these names Dr. Green received came from, Ron Pandolfi interviewed Rick Doty via email.

– All of the above activities were done out of a personal, private request from his friend Kit Green – otherwise Pandolfi would have had no interest in this drama

Why did Kit draw his friend Ron into the drama? Your guess is as good as ours – although it could have something to do with the fact that those who were creating and pushing the Alien stories known as “Serpo” were making every attempt possible to make it appear as though the sources “comfirming” the story were official and legitimate.  In his usual tell-only-half-the-story manipulation, Gary Bekkum finishes his article with the following quote:

kit“I need you to know that Col. Weaver has contacted me and said he is Gene Loscowski. Her [sic] referred in detail to the meeting you and I had with Barry Hennessey about Rick’s polygraph records … He quoted what I said, what you did, and the circumstances of the meeting to convince me of who he was. He also told me the essence of the SERPO story was true.”

Everyone reading this article should pause at this point.  Consider what Gary Bekkum is attempting to do…add legitimacy and relevance to the old “Serpo” releases and the sources behind them. Why would someone want to do such a thing – especially after so many of the sources have already been revealed as nothing more than sock puppets for a small group of men who have absolutely no official clearances for this sort of information? Rick Doty…Ernie Kellerstrass…seriously, folks.

To provide readers with the rest of the story, RU will provide Ron’s response to Kit’s claim above, which Gary quoted in his article completely out-of-context.  As you are reading this full quote (we’ve neither redacted nor modified any part of this), please make note that Ron is responding to claims about DIA/visitors from Kit – no one else. It should also be noted that the claimed “Col Weaver” contact was via email, and Kit had not confirmed that the sender was really who he claimed to be.

Kit explains to Ron how these “contacts” related to Serpo typically work:

“I suspect more details are not worthy of email. That said: 100% of all communications have been by email. I have no actual human contact whatsoever…they didn’t show up, ever, for the pre-arranged meetings…not one person: Gene, Paul, Herb, Smith, Joseph, Lackey.

I have erased all the emails…every one. However, I suspect there must be a way to retrieve them from my hard drive or the University Server. if someone knows how to do that, with proper identification, they are welcome to sit in my office and get them. The FBI wasn’t the least bit interested…but then, they never are.

The following was one of Ron’s responses to the strange story that Kit was telling him (Ron also confused “Gene” as a woman – the source is actually portrayed as a man…inconsequential of course because Gene isn’t really “Gene” in the first place):

Subject: RE: PRIVATE: Search For Two DIA Sources

Kit,

I was not with you during the meeting you had with Barry Hennessey about Rick’s polygraph records. The meeting you and I participated in included Barry Hennessey, Col. Weaver, and the CIA CI Director and did not involve any discussion of Rick’s polygraph records. So the quote from Ms. Loscowski regarding what I did and the circumstances of the meeting could not have been correct. More likely the person who claimed to be Ms. Loscowski described what she had read on the Internet concerning the fabricated story that you and I had met with Barry Hennessy to discuss Rick’s polygraph records. Therefore the lady who contacted you most likely was not Col.
Weaver.

Your expansion of the story of the two DIA employees visiting LANL and being known to others has me concerned. The names you provided do not correspond to any DIA employees. There are no people with those names that have TS//SCI clearances. If the story of the sources/visitors is true, they are falsely representing themselves as DIA employees, possibly to access sensitive facilities and acquire classified information for a foreign service.

I am nearly certain that Rick fabricated this entire story, and that he is Mr. Anonymous, Ms. Loscowski, and the two DIA sources/visitors. If so, Rick may just be having a good time, and we need not be concerned for national security. If not, there may actually be a network of foreign agents penetrating some of our most sensitive facilities under the false flag of a DIA operation. Therefore please be very clear in describing the form of communications you had with Ms. Loscowski (e.g. phone, e-mail, etc.); how you acquired the additional background concerning the DIA sources visitors; and what you know of about the many people who know them.

Ron

**

Not very long ago, Ron was kind enough to offer RU investigators a short briefing about the entire episode that transpired between he and Kit, and how Kit’s claims, in particular about Dearlove’s reactions to the alleged DIA names, caused Ron a lot of personal embarassment when he attempted to follow-up the story Kit was claiming with officials within the Agency. In the end, the DIA names turned out all completely fabricated, save for one – a DIA clerk without security clearances but who’d just started her job. Somehow, the scammers had obtained her name from a directory or other source, and started using it as a “DIA contact” – that person’s name was Tamara Linden. In fact, the scammers continue using a Tamara Linden email address today, as well as the Gene and Paul accounts – all fraudulent email accounts using fake or borrowed names. Not a single legitimate DIA source exists, nor does a single ounce of government interest exist in “SERPO,” to support the strange, delusional tales that Gary Bekkum weaves with each article he writes.

And now you know the rest of the story.

Bill Moore’s Disinfo – A Vehicle for Injected Social Memes


Bill Moore Most anyone who’s researched Ufology history for any length of time knows the story of Bill Moore, Bob Pratt, and Jaime Shandera.  The short version is that following the publication of his book The Roswell Incident in the summer of 1980, Moore was contacted by someone claiming to be a Colonel at Offut AFB, as well as from another individual (Doty) from Kirkland AFB. Those contacting Moore convinced him that they were "high level government Intelligence" personnel who were "uncomfortable with the government’s continuing cover-up."

Puzzle Pieces from 1976 through 1985

No one has ever really pieced together, or fully exposed, all of the individuals who were involved in this early scam. Richard Doty is the only person who’s been publicly revealed as a contact. Moore’s announcement at MUFON in 1989 left much to be desired in terms of details and source names.

It took until 2007, at the MUFON International UFO Symposium Proceedings, for a well-written and thoroughly researched background expose to finally go public regarding these background activities surrounding the MJ-12 releases.  MUFON researchers did a brilliant job providing the public with a fair and balanced review of some of the activities of these scammers through the 1980s. 

Bob Pratt It helped that they had access to the "secret tapes," in which MUFON UFO Journal Editor, Robert Pratt, had recorded meetings and phone conversations with Moore.  These tapes revealed some fascinating new details about the men behind the scam. (Unfortunately, Bob Pratt passed away in November 2005, the same year and month the hoaxers attempted to start releasing the same stories via Project Serpo.) The general timeline detailed in the MUFON document, covering the years before the MJ-12 stories went "public" is summarized as follows.

-> Since September 5, 1980, Moore communicated with a "mysterious AF Colonel" through "middleman" Richard Doty (much like Doty also served (and still does) as the "middleman" for Bob Collins, author of Exempt from Disclosure , and many of Collins’ own "mysterious" sources.

-> Doty and his "mysterious contacts" recycled information fed to them by Moore and Friedman and recycled that information, in the form of allegedly classified or secret documents and stories, to UFO researchers including Linda Howe, Bruce Maccabee and others.

-> December 29 and 30, 1981 – Doty meets Moore at a restaurant and provided him with three documents, one of which was the "one-page Aquarius Teletype."

-> In 1982, with Doty’s assistance, Moore tried to get Bob Pratt to help him publish a book centered upon the Aquarius/MJ12 documents. The book project fizzled out in 1983. Richard Doty cooperated under the pseudonym "Ronald L. Davis."

-> After Moore told Doty the story of a famous UFO hoax, Doty and his associates used those story details to create the "Aquarius Executive Briefing" document and a few months later attempted to pass it off as an authentic document to Ufologist Linda Howe in April of 1983.

Aquarius/MJ12 Documents Were Created from Data Recycled from Ufologists

The most significant finding of the MUFON report was that the released MJ-12/Aquarius documents recycled information Moore, Shandera and Pratt had previously fed Doty.  The Mufon report quotes Friedman in 1996 writing:

"…the simple fact of the matter is the Moore, Shandera, and I had already picked up on all the names of the [MJ-12] list prior to the receipt of the [MJ-12] film…"

From page 107 of the MUFON report we get a glimpse of the people who appear to be helping Doty run the scam.

Linda Howe "Some months later, in early 1983, I became aware that Rick was involved with a team of several others [in AFOSI], including one fellow from Denver that I knew of and at least one who was working out of Washington, D.C., in playing an elaborate disinformation game against a prominent UFO researcher [Linda Howe] who, at the time, had close connections with a major television film company [HBO] interested in doing a UFO documentary…."

 The information that Doty was feeding Linda Howe was a story based upon the Aztec information Moore had fed Doty only months earlier.

On page 116, the author of the 2007 MUFON analysis recognizes the clear philosophy that was injected by Doty’s group into the material.

"The Aquarius Document contains “philosophy” as well as technical data. In the section which deals with the philosophy behind the need to maintain a “Top Secret” posture for as long as possible with respect to the Aquarius data, are the following two startling conclusions which have been arrived at by the US government with respect to UFOs:

(A) The events surrounding Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Christian religion were manipulations affected [sic] by beings of an advanced civilization from another world. [snip]

(B) Release of this data to the public would not only severely cripple the ability of the government (indeed any government in the Western world) to effectively govern, but would also severely damage the very fibre [sic] of Western civilization as we know it."

The Philosophy Distributed Within the MJ-12 Documents

In fact, MUFON got it exactly right. The philosophy that the creators of the documents were trying to distribute, by implanting it within stories of crashed aliens and, in 2005, stories about a human-alien exchange program, remains the same. 

Some specific excerpts from those documents, released in the 1980’s, that portray how specific and how much focus was placed on this ideology is shown below.  The common theme is always the same – (1) Aliens “planting” Christ, (2) Hints of Genetic Manipulation throughout our evolution (notice the focus on evolution).  (3) Alien technology far exceeds our own but we have the potential to reverse-engineer it.  From the MJ-12 documents: 

This first section injects the concept of Christ as a "planted" human.

“(TS/ORCON) Most governmental documents pertaining to UFO sightings, incidents and governmental policies, including Project Blue Book, have been released to the public under FOIA or under various other release programs.  [snip…] There was other information obtained from EBE that was deemed sensitive and not releasable to the public. Notably, Project Aquarius Volume IX, which pertains to tracing the Aliens’ first visitation of earth back some 5,000 years. EBE reported that 2,000 years ago his ancestors planted a human creature on earth to assist the inhabitants of earth in developing a civilization. This information was only vague and the exact identity or background information on this homo-sapien was not obtained. Undoubtfully [sic], if this information was released to the public, it would cause a worldwide religious panic. MJ3 has developed a plan that will allow release of Project Aquarius, Volumes I thru III.”

This next section injects the meme suggesting that humans have alien technology in our possession, and may be able to "reverse engineer" it with approprite [fringe] scientific funding and advancement.

“(TS/ORCON) In the 1976 MJ3 report (Atch 6), it was estimated the Aliens’ technology was many thousands of years ahead of United States technology. Our scientists speculate that until our technology develops to a level equal to the Aliens’ , we cannot understand the large volume of scientific information the United States has already gained from the Aliens. This advancement of United States Technology may take many hundreds of years.”

In fact, countless believers have latched on to this meme through the years, and an entire fringe scientific cottage industry is now based on alien "propulsion" and reverse engineered UFO craft.

ufopropulsion

Today you can find "researchers" who are attempting to "reverse engineer" UFO propulsion technology, clean energy technology, and other technologies that the "aliens" are supposedly offering humanity. Millionaires actually invest money into these sort of projects. 

The next injected meme focuses on genetics.

“1. (TS/ORCON) PROJECT BANDO: (PROWORD: RISK) Originally established in 1949. Its mission was to collect and evaluate medical information from the surviving Aliens [sic] creature and the recovered Alien bodies. This Project medically examined EBE and provided United States medical researchers with certain answers to the evolution theory . (OPR: CIA) (Terminated in 1974).”

In the next update, we will outline how we used social networking analysis to connect these same MJ-12 memes to later releases, and directly to the same people who were distributing those releases in 2005.

How Scientologists Created a Cult of the U.S. Government


Swat TeamIn July of 1977, the FBI conducted three early-morning raids of Scientology Guardian Office facilities (the Guardian Office was Hubbard’s Intelligence agency).  Senior GO personnel were sent to jail as a result, and the GO was disestablished afterwards.  Prior to this raid, there was a virtual intelligence war between the cult of Scientologists and U.S. government agencies.  Scientologists dedicated an inordinate amount of resources and time to infiltrating U.S. agencies – even by simply using low-level positions in order to “convert” others within the agency over to Scientology.  L Ron Hubbard’s ultimate goal was to obtain whatever Scientology related documents existed within various government organizations.  L Ron Hubbard had filed countless FOIA lawsuits leading up to that critical point when the FBI raid took place. With these raids, the U.S. intelligence complex dealt Scientology a deadly blow.

The U.S. Government Gets Infected

Meanwhile, due to the volumes of documents released many years later in the 1990s, the public now knows that at the time of these raids, in the 1970’s, the CIA was not averse to using Scientology auditing “technology” through the employment of high-level Scientology OTs.  Keep in mind, these were guys where active members of a cult that was actively taking part in Intelligence warfare with the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies.  Yet the top three guys running the SRI-CIA contract were, all three, high level Scientologists.  One of whom, Hal Puthoff, had such a close relationship with L Ron Hubbard that he even wrote the preface for one of his books.  Ingo Swan, who essentially was the one who developed the “remote-viewing” techniques, used the cult of Scientology methodologies that he’d obtained from high-level Scientology documents that, at the time, were well-protected by the Guardian Office.  At the point of these raids, these scientologists had already begun training CIA personnel in using these “methodologies,” or auditing procedures, which some have described as a form of hypnosis, or brain-washing.

The CIA allowed these three Scientologists to spread this belief system created by the cult of Scientology, and allowed them to infect other personnel within the agency with this doctrine and these practices.  These personnel in turn, as well as Swann himself, spread these techniques to other agencies as well as the military, such as the research and operations conducted at INSCOM, Fort Meade.  A religion was born…except our government could legally practice it.  At the point of these raids, the IRS had conveniently official removed its tax-exempt status.  This meant that as far as the U.S. Federal Government was concerned, Scientology was not a “religion.”  This removed the government from its obligations to respect and maintain a “hands-off” approach regarding religious beliefs.  With the cult of Scientology no longer officially classified as a religion, the government was free to do as it wanted, and it proceeded to treat the organization as an Intelligence threat.  Its secrets, once finally obtained from the GO raid, could be utilized in the “best interests” of the United States.  If the claimed abilities allegedly generated by auditing procedures were shown to be effective – the government would have yet another weapon in its massive military-industrial arsenal.

Little did the CIA know that they had just allowed an infectious virus into their inner sactum.

The Spread of the Remote Viewing/Auditing Viral Meme

Many of those running the anti-Scientology intelligence campaign, as of the early to mid 70’s, may not have realized the kind of organization they were dealing with.  And they may not have realized the inherent danger of the highest-level “technologies” which they were only just beginning to dabble with.  Viral memes, and the susceptibility of the human mind to the power of suggestion and hypnotic techniques, would prove to be catastrophic to those who were exposed to this training.

JanetIn a fascinating article by Janet Reitman in Rolling Stone magazine titled Inside Scientology – Unlocking the complex code of America’s most mysterious religion, she writes:

“Scientologists, much like Mormons or Christian evangelicals, consider themselves to be on a mission. They frequently speak of ‘helping people,’ and this mission is stressed in a number of church testaments. ‘Scientologists see themselves as possessors of doctrines and skills that can save the world, if not the galaxy,’ says Stephen Kent, a professor of sociology at the University of Alberta, in Canada, who has extensively studied the group.”

She quotes Hubbard himself as describing the cult of Scientology as follows:

“‘We’re not playing some minor game in Scientology,’ Hubbard wrote in a policy paper titled ‘Keeping Scientology Working,’ which is required reading for every member. ‘The whole agonized future of this planet, every man, woman and child on it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on what you do here and now with and in Scientology. This is a deadly serious activity.'”

She describes OT’s (Operating Thetans):

“OTs are Scientology’s elite — enlightened beings who are said to have total ‘control’ over themselves and their environment. OTs can allegedly move inanimate objects with their minds, leave their bodies at will and telepathically communicate with, and control the behavior of, both animals and human beings. At the highest levels, they are allegedly liberated from the physical universe, to the point where they can psychically control what Scientologists call MEST: Matter, Energy, Space and Time.”

OTIII is described by Janet as reaching the “Wall of Fire”:

“The most important, and highly anticipated, of the eight ‘OT levels’ is OT III, also known as the Wall of Fire. It is here that Scientologists are told the secrets of the universe, and, some believe, the creation story behind the entire religion. It is knowledge so dangerous, they are told, any Scientologist learning this material before he is ready could die. When I ask Mike Rinder about this, he casts the warning in less-dire terms, explaining that, before he reached OT III — he is now OT V — he was told that looking at the material early was ‘spiritually not good for you.’ But Hubbard, who told followers that he discovered these secrets while on a trip to North Africa in 1967, was more dramatic. ‘Somehow or other I brought it off, and obtained the material and was able to live through it,’ he wrote. ‘I am very sure that I was the first one that ever did live through any attempt to attain that material.’ Scientologists must be ‘invited’ to do OT III. Beforehand, they are put through an intensive auditing process to verify that they are ready. They sign a waiver promising never to reveal the secrets of OT III, nor to hold Scientology responsible for any trauma or damage one might endure at this stage of auditing. Finally, they are given a manila folder, which they must read in a private, locked room.”

A Story That Can Make You Sick

RinderImagine – a story so terribly dangerous to an unprepared human mind, that it could actually make a person who was previously mentally healthy, very sick.  A poisonous viral meme, if you will.  A story that could make a previously healthy person very sick, sick, sick.  Sound familiar?

The story described above, published by a former member in 1995, shows a darker side to the cult of Scientology, both anti-Christian and anti-God, disavowing organized religion entirely – and replacing it with a cosmological belief system based on an alien story.  Auditing, essentially, is a brainwashing technique to gradually strip away any previous religious beliefs or inclinations to logically and critically think about ideas and new concepts.  It’s a method to remove resistance to illogical new ideas, building up to the point when the final revelation of the true nature of Scientology is revealed.  At this point, OTIII, the Scientologist’s mind is so emptied and robotic, and so “clear” that this story fills the void and becomes “truth”.

When Janet asks Scientology leader Mike Rinder, the fifty-year-old director of the Church of Scientology International’s legal and public-relations wing known as the Office of Special Affairs, about these kinds of science fiction stories at the heart of Scientology – he responds heatedly: “I’m not explaining it to you, and I could not explain it to you,” says Rinder heatedly. “You don’t have a hope of understanding it.”

It must be very complicated.  Sort of like the “New Physics” we heard about during the Project Serpo fiasco.  Scientology is known among its members as the “New Science” after all.

George Knapp Interviews Gary Bekkum on C2C


Gary Bekkum

On January 20, 2009, George Knapp interviews Gary Bekkum on Coast to Coast AM.

George Knapp provided a summary to Jack Sarfatti’s list.  I will summarize the summary here:

The discussion centered around if and how the government monitors the UFO field, and what type of material is usually discussed on groups like Sarfatti’s list.

Gary speculated regarding the following topics:

  • The possibility that that U.S. monitoring is because they are convinced of the potential for infiltration there by foreign agents to access information
  • Mentioned Jack Sarfatti’s association (but not being a member of) Aviary folks
  • Said he believed in official, classified working groups on UFOs
  • Referred to the Aviary as publicly portrayed inaccurately as a "dark cabal, akin to MJ12."
  • Talked about high level, exclusive discussion groups like Jack’s list, made up of people with high-level clearances who discuss UFO-related ideas
  • Names discussed: Uri Geller, John Alexander, Bruce Maccabee, (said he wasn’t sure about Doty and Collins)
  • Mentioned Kit Green briefly
  • Talked about Dan Smith at length and why he hired Gus Russo to investigate
  • Discussed pieces of the Stargate FOIA documents

You can catch the radio show here .  I plan to do so and then provide a second review covering the issues, and discussing the accuracy/inaccuracy of the material discussed in the Interview.

In a brief overview of the topics and some of the things Gary discussed, it appears that he speculated a great deal as he is known to do.  However, given that this was a radio talk show where speculation is part of the discussion, that’s surely his right.   However, based on the synopsis, there is certainly one major issue that RU takes issue with.

"Intelligence agencies could be using the Internet as a social control experiment. He cited Project Serpo (about a human/ET exchange) as an example of a possible disinformation leak that was introduced in order to observe how the information spreads and changes."

While Gary Bekkum’s guess is eerily close to the mark, unfortunately he completely misses the target by blaming "Intelligence agencies" for Project Serpo.  U.S. Intelligence agencies, or the U.S. military, had nothing to do with Project Serpo or related MJ-12 documents.  However, ironically Gary’s speculation partially hits the mark – as we will continue to lay out here in upcoming updates.
