SELECTED BIBLIOGRAPHY…………………………………………… 141
This small book is divided into three parts. And it is with regard to the first part that I join a very long list of those who have seen and experienced things they cannot prove happened.
The second part is on much firmer ground. It is largely a brief synopsis of spectacular data and facts about the Moon that have achieved exposure elsewhere, and which provide evidence that the Moon is a very interesting place, indeed.
I have selected only small portions from all of the unusual lunar information available, but have provided sources in the bibliography for those interested in more copious details.
The third part begins with a presentation of certain social phenomena regarding the problems of telepathy that can be factually identified. These, however, set the background for the strange and surprising scenario they lead into, although the scenario is admittedly speculative in nature.
Some have advised me not to publish this book – on the grounds that it challenges those echelons of conventional credibility that lasciviously get off on deconstructing those unfortunates who experience what they can’t prove.
I have been mindful of this opportunistic factor for several decades. But my age is advancing and I have become interested in recording and wrapping up my active research into Psi phenomena in order to pursue less stressful vistas.
As I have discussed in other writings, I’ve always been interested in Psi phenomena, and beginning in 1970 it chanced that opportunities to extend that interest in depth were made available.
Anyone with more than a mere superficial interest in Psi phenomena must of course encounter the rather smelly morass of social resistance whereby the authenticity of those phenomena are methodically deconstructed, thus suspending them in doubt.
This social resistance, even if smelly, has largely been successful in destroying all concerted approaches to Psi phenomena. This success is specifically active within high strata of societal power, and which strata are otherwise entirely disinterested in what lesser mortals DO experience along these lines.
Why it is that governing societal factors need to deconstruct the provable existence of at least some vital Psi phenomena is therefore something that needs to be examined and understood.
Along these lines of inquiry, the existence and methods of the machinations against Psi development can easily be brought to light. But the reasons that govern the implementation of the machinations none the less remain obscured.
Thus, the societal resistance to Psi breaks neatly into two aspects: to prevent Psi development; and to keep obscure the actual reasons for doing so.
One reason for the blanket suppression which has been offered up by many before me is that effective formats of Psi would disturb any number of social institutions. Those institutions would feel “threatened” by developed formats of, say, telepathy, which might thereafter be utilized to penetrate their secrets.
There is some rather clear truth in this. Indeed, it is because of this truth that some echelons of humans are at war with the Psi potentials of the human species – because those echelons have motivations they would prefer never to be disclosed via Psi penetration.
If this is the case, the chief preventive measure would be to stamp out altogether any real understanding of Psi. Indeed, something like this has taken place.
And there cognizance of the nature of the situation might remain – more or less being defined as humans in conflict with their own Psi potentials because Psi penetrates secrets.
Indeed, on my part for a long time I assumed that this was the beginning and end of the story regarding the methodical suppression of Psi by high societal echelons – such as represented by government, science, academe and media.
As it happened, however, the events described in Part One of this book occurred beginning in 1975.
These are the events I can’t prove. None the less they made somewhat visible another possible aspect that might be factored into the odiferous suppression of Psi that was already familiar to me.
This aspect required that I introduce two unusual terms: EARTHSIDE and SPACESIDE. These refer, of course, to Earthside intelligence and Spaceside intelligence.
The central hypothesis of this book is that if developed Psi potentials would be an invasive threat to Earthside intelligences, then developed Earthside Psi would also be a threat to Spaceside intelligences.
After all, in that telepathy, for example, is invasively defined as reading minds, the distinction between, reading Earthside minds and Spaceside minds would be very narrow.
The only real problem in considering this is whether or not Spacesiders exist.
I have decided not to enter into the relevant debate about this issue, but direct the reader to the copious literature already existing, with special regard to the weekly UFO ROUND-UP that can be located in the Internet (see bibliography).
The inclusion in this book of the story I can’t prove is not being offered as evidence about the existence of Spaceside intelligence, but because the reader deserves to know why I have concluded there is far more to telepathy than commonly conceived in Earthside terms.
In this, the thinking proceeds from actual experience, and not from analyzing the information packages presented in the works of others.
The works of others, of course, have proved to be valuable in the long run, and they certainly introduce a modicum of authenticity that would otherwise go completely missing.
In the end, though, the authenticity of my personal, unprovable, experience probably doesn’t need to be considered all that much – because the drift of accumulating information is inexorably leading to establishing the authentic existence of extraterrestrial intelligences anyway.
One factor that won’t be apparent throughout this book is the large amount of time (years actually) it took to achieve the synthesis of the factors presented. I tend to be a rather slow thinker, and am sometimes even slower on the up-take.
I had originally intended to include a lengthy discussion regarding the probability that telepathy might be a universal “language” system of some kind that operates through consciousness entities everywhere.
I briefly allude to this in Part Three, but otherwise have decided to include that discussion in another work – because it needs a larger information basis that includes the nature of energy organisms.
But I feel obliged to comment on some of the reasons I decided to go ahead with the book after so many years have passed.
In late 1990, I read a well-documented report of a large UFO craft sighted in the former USSR.
The report indicated that the sighting was attested to by General Igor Maltsev, chief of the main staff of Air Defense Forces, and published in Tsbochaya Tribuna, 19, dated April 1990.
The report quoted General Maltsev as saying: “I am not a specialist on UFOs and therefore I can only correlate the data and express my own supposition. According to the evidence of these eyewitnesses, the UFO is a disk with a diameter from 100 to 200 meters. Two pulsating lights were positioned on its sides . . .”.
The article went on to state that UFOs are piloted craft and contradicted the suggestion that they are mere atmospheric phenomena. If the sighted craft was indeed 200 meters, it was about 650 feet, or somewhat larger than a football field.
Meanwhile, there were other notable sightings elsewhere, and video footage was being obtained regarding a lot of them. Such reports got me ruminating about my 1975 experiences, with the result that I decided to write them down before my memory began deteriorating more than it already had.
Between 1976 and 1990, I gradually concluded that Earthsiders and Spacesiders didn’t seem to have much in common – with the exception of telepathy.
By all contactee and abductee accounts, telepathic capacities seem to be well-developed by the ET’s, but remained quite undeveloped Earthside.
I expanded the narration of the events to include some fundamental considerations of telepathy, and which theorized WHY development of telepathy is suppressed Earthside.
In due course, I showed the manuscript to my then literary rep, who got excited about it, and thought that its successful publication was a sure and easy thing.
Over twenty publishers turned it down – even in the face of the fact that much UFO-ET stuff ranging from bullshit to the sublime fantastic was otherwise being published everywhere.
This blanket rejection on such a large scale remains, as it were, mysterious. Perhaps it can be interpreted as some kind of subtle, large-scale media control.
But one possible explanation might be that as outrageous as the tale and telepathic considerations are, something in them moves too close to Someone’s comfort.
In any event, because of frustration, embarrassment, etc., I abandoned this book project. And some more years passed. In about March, 1998, however, certain articles and TV reports centering on ET possibilities began circulating, among which were a few entitled “Astonishing Intelligent Artifacts (?) Found On Mysterious Far Side Of The Moon.”
Then, via a report in the Internet authored by David Derbyshire, dated May 14, 1998, it seems that a “24,000 mph UFO” buzzed Britain on May 13, 1998.
THIS craft was tracked by the Royal Air Force and the Dutch Air Force. It was “triangular” and “as big as a battleship. About 900 feet long.” British and Dutch interceptors were sent aloft. The Big Thing left them in the mists – and went who knows where?
Thus, there are recent authentic reports of UFOs, and indeed they seem present Everywhere, and even boldly reveal themselves to the lenses of Camcorders world-wide.
That the UFOs are driven or managed by Spaceside intelligences simply must be taken for granted.
And if they have achieved high technological control of consciousness that is commensurate with the high technology of their craft, then I’ll bet they are very good at what we Earthsiders refer to as telepathy.
The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy
INVOLVEMENT IN PSI RESEARCH
The sequence of strange events narrated in this book took place because of my involvement with Psi research, which began out of the blue in 1971 when I was thirty-seven years along.
My life might have flowed along lines presumably more gratifying in mundane but more comfortable ways had I never volunteered to be an experimental subject in Psi research labs.
In these experiments, there were high and low points, successes and failures. And there was the opportunity to meet with many fabulous and wonderful people.
But when one enters into Psi research, one also enters into a narrow cultural subset rather steamed up with high stress factors, intrigues, mainstream confusions, fear and apprehension, internecine warfare, and largish clumps of idiocy.
Additionally, Psi research subjects (guinea pigs) are non-entities who are expected to exhibit Psi manifestations. At the same time they are supposed to know nothing, think nothing, suppose nothing -because the job of knowing, thinking, supposing belongs to the researchers.
The subject is something like a computer chip being tested to see if it can perform in the ways wanted. If the chip doesn’t perform in the ways wanted, then it is tossed aside into the big pile of anonymous chips that have likewise failed.
It is thus that the laboratory life-span of a test subject usually does not exceed three months, and during that time they have to undergo endless repetitive testing. One of the major outcomes of this is usually bottomless boredom.
The appearance of boredom is deadly in Psi research – because a bored chip gets into a state of apathy or non-interest, after which its delicate circuitry fizzles.
I knew most of this in advance, largely because Psi phenomena had always been of endless interest to me, and I had done a great deal of organized reading and study. So I had no expectations at all that my allotted three months would somehow turn into nineteen years.
The major reason had not much to do with the Stygian climes of parapsychology itself. Unknown to almost everyone at the time, the American intelligence services became worried about, of all things, possible development of “psychic warfare advances” in the (now former) Soviet Union.
The intelligence services are heavy players, and because of the Soviet Psi threat they more or less required an active picture of Psi potentials somewhat larger than standard parapsychology could provide. Because of these unusual circumstances, I got dragged into several years of work in this regard.
But this meant that I also got dragged into realms of often idiotic secrecy, into endless security checks conducive of paranoia, into all kinds of science fiction dreamworks, into intelligence intrigues whose various formats were sometimes like toilet drains, and into quite nervous military and political ramifications.
My participation in this long-term affair had its ups and downs -and was to involve hundreds of complicated situations, circumstances, and events of various kinds – of which those narrated in this book were only one kind, albeit the most stressful and mind-boggling.
To get into the elements of th§ narration, it is necessary to briefly outline what led up to them.
In late 1972 the Central Intelligence Agency funded a small, tentative research project at Stanford Research Institute. The project at SRI was headed by the physicist, Dr. H. E. Puthoff, and I was invited to travel to California to participate in it.
The purpose of the small project was to discover one ESP phenomenon that was capable of being reproduced at will. This was the kind of experiment notoriously missing in parapsychology, but in which I had been somewhat successful earlier.
The project was given eight months to produce something along these lines. So, thereupon began yet another daily exercise involving hundreds of experimental trials. These proceeded up and down in terms of what was being tested, but ultimately DOWN into boredom so cloying that it was hard to face yet another day of it.
In early April, 1973, in an effort to emerge from the daily boredom of repetitive testing (which induces a flatline of ESP activity), I suggested that we once in a while do something far out, something that might reintroduce a sense of adventure, excitement, and enjoyment.
The planet Jupiter was literally far out. NASA had earlier launched Pioneer 10 and 11 to fly-by that planet, and information telemetered back by the two crafts would undergo technical analyses. Information from Pioneer 10 would commence in September, 1973.
The only real difference between Jupiter as a “target,” and mundane target objects in the next room, was its distance from Earth. But for me there was another difference. It would be exciting to try to extend one’s ESP to the planet, a form of remote viewing. Jupiter was more remote than the next room – and there might be a thrill of “traveling” in interplanetary space.
But there was yet another difference. Those locked into conventional research mindsets are usually nervous about novel experiments. Conventional mindsets tend to take themselves somewhat seriously, so there is usually resistance to non-conventional experiments.
The resistance is usually first manifested by tar and feathering the proposed experiment (and everyone involved) BEFORE it takes place.
If that doesn’t squelch the experiment, then it is merely declared ridiculous and laughed out of Sciencetown.
Is not a psychic mind trip to Jupiter laughable?
My colleagues at SRI were, to put it mildly, not interested in being laughed out of town. But I had become quite gloomy since failure-by-boredom was just ahead.
So I had a choice of (1) being laughed out of town, or (2) boredom which clearly could flat-line ESP faculties. The resistance to the Jupiter “probe” was overcome when I said “I quit, and you can return what’s left of the money to the funding clients.”
In any event, I felt it would be interesting to see if the remote-viewing data acquired in April, 1973, might somewhat match the data later revealed by NASA’s craft beginning in September, 1973.
The thrill of the idea was to get psychically to Jupiter before the NASA vehicles did. If this worked even somewhat, it was a kind of psychic one-upsmanship. The experiment was done on personal time, on a Saturday, a non-working day.
But it was wrapped in very stringent protocols. At first, the very-long-distance (VLD) experiment was not to be an official one. But the remote-viewing raw data had to be recorded somehow, so that it could be established that it existed prior to the NASA vehicles getting to the planet.
So, at the conclusion of the experiment, copies of the raw data were circulated far and wide, offered to and accepted by many respected scientists in the Silicon Valley area, including two at Jet Propulsion Laboratories. Some scientists, of course, thought the entire idea ridiculous, but these were fewer than one might expect.
For the experiment to be considered successful in any way, the remote viewing data had to include impressions of factors that were not known about the great planet – lest one be accused of reading up beforehand.
As to the raw data itself, this ended up consisting of one page of sketches, and two and a half pages of verbal observations.
The raw data yielded thirteen factors, and only thirteen, all of which were scientifically unanticipated before they were confirmed by later analysis of the scientific data.
These raw data factors are enumerated below, accompanied by the dates they were confirmed.
1. The existence of a hydrogen mantle: Confirmed September
1973, again in 1975.
2. Storms, wind: Confirmed 1976 as to dimensions and unexpected
3. Something like a tornado: Confirmed 1976 as strong rotating
4. High infrared reading: Confirmed 1974.
5. Temperature inversion: Confirmed 1975.
6. Cloud color and configuration: Confirmed 1979.
7. Dominant orange color: Confirmed 1979.
8. Water/ice crystals in atmosphere: Confirmed 1975.
9. Crystal bands reflect radio probes: Confirmed 1975.
10. Magnetic and electromagnetic auroras (“rainbows”): Confirmed
11. A planetary RING inside the atmosphere: Confirmed 1979, not
only as to its existence, but as being inside the crystallized atmospheric layers.
12. Liquid composition: Confirmed 1973, 1976, as hydrogen in
13. Mountains and solid core: Still questionable, but suspected as
Six of these thirteen factors were given scientific substantiation by 1975, which is the year that the events narrated in this book begin.
It needs to be pointed up that before it was actually discovered in 1979, most scientists flatly denounced the possibility of the RING, but which had been sketched in the raw data acquired in 1973. And just recently the existence of more refined rings has been confirmed.
For me, the Jupiter experiment effected a cure of my experimental doldrums for a number of reasons.
For one thing, the trip and the sightseeing there were awesome experiences. This was a kind of profound aesthetic impact that can inspire one for many of years.
For another thing, as confirmation feedback began coming in during September, 1973, in the form of scientific announcements, the gossip lines shifted from cold ridicule and began heating up. Lots of notables began coming to lunch at SRI in order to get grounded with the possibilities.
For yet another thing, the CIA, of course, was interested in the possibilities of psychic spying. Although the planetary experiment had not been done on the Company’s funded time, it now seemed that the project at SRI was excitedly on the right track.
The Jupiter Probe also received wide media coverage, although not in scientific journals, of course. But then there are all types of people who view science much in the same way that science has traditionally viewed parapsychology.
I now wish to mention an aspect that might go missing otherwise, and does go missing, rather conveniently, as regards a lot of psychic claims and posturing. This has to do with the matter of what are referred to as positive feedback loops.
It is not hard to comprehend what these consist of. One word will do: Confirmation – in some or any form.
A “psychic” says thus and so, after which one needs to look around for some kind of hard evidence that supports the real-time facts of what has been said.
As far out as the Jupiter experiment was, it was based and designed AGAINST expected feedback loops.
The feedback was in the form of the information telemetered back to Earth by the NASA vehicles flying by the planet.
As it turned out, among those taking an active interest in the possibility of interplanetary spying was a group so clandestine that it could be characterized not merely as a deepest black project, but as an entirely invisible one.
It was this group, or whatever it might be called, that I met up with in the early part of 1975.
ENCOUNTERING THE SPOOKIEST SPOOKS
About two years after the Jupiter probe I received a telephone call during late February, 1975, from a certain highly-placed functionary in Washington, D.C.
I had met him on social occasions, and we had rather enjoyable conversations since he had a deep interest in Psi research.
I both admired and respected him. He was forthright about his unusual interests, and he dared to swim against the surface currents of that mighty river called “prevailing opinion” which could damage even very high reputations in the Washington maze.
But in his telephone call to me, my friend was somewhat less than forthright, as the following conversation drawn from memory indicates.
“A Mr. Axelrod is, going to telephone you,” he said. “If you can manage to do so, would you try to do whatever he asks, and ask no questions yourself.”
After a pause, I asked: “Well, who is Mr. Axelrod?”
Now there was a pause at his end of the telephone. Then:
“I can’t tell you because I don’t know myself. But it’s important, VERY important, very URGENT that you agree to do what he asks.
“I can tell you nothing more, so please do NOT ask. Just do what he wants. And, whether you do or do not, we will never refer to this conversation again. I must ask you in friendship never to refer to me about this in any way.”
After which, my friend expressed a quick passing interest in how I was doing, and then virtually hung up on me.
Although my contact was usually jolly, he had seemed, well, a little uptight. But otherwise, this type of thing was not entirely unusual in my new career of Psi research.
Many had approached me, some of whom asked for anonymity, some using fake names – such as police emissaries and detectives who wanted inputs regarding difficult crimes, a few scientists with research stoppages, an art director of a famous museum which had misplaced a valuable painting.
Desperate people do desperate things – such as consulting psychics – even some Presidents whose interactions with seers are documented.
In this somewhat less than open manner began a chain of mind-boggling affairs which excited me on the one hand, yet ultimately made me QUIVER as if I suddenly found myself standing between two realities neither of which seem quite real.
As it turned out, in spite of the alleged urgency, the mysterious Mr. Axelrod did not telephone until about four weeks later. And when he did, it was about three in the morning. The call jolted me out of a sound sleep, so, of course, at first I didn’t quite remember who he was.
After we got that straightened out, he asked: “Can you get to Washington by noon today? I realize this is short notice, but we would be very appreciative if you can. We will reimburse you for your time and all your expenses.”
I was just about to ask why I should get to Washington by noon,
^shen I remembered that my friend had been very insistent that I not “ask questions. So, I said I would take the air-shuttle or something.
“Good,” Mr. Axelrod said, “but we cannot meet you at the airport. Are you familiar with the Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian?”
I said I was. “Good,” he replied. “As soon as you arrive, go there and stand near the elephant in the central rotunda. Be there at noon. You will be contacted. Just do exactly as your contacts asks. My only requirement is that you tell no one where you are going. If you feel you cannot do that, please say so now and we will forget about this.”
I sat in silence. “Is that OK with you?” he asked. “Yes, I suppose so.” But I couldn’t resist one question, which seemed a logical one. “How will I recognize who is supposed to contact me?”
“Don’t worry. We know what YOU look like.” And Mr. Axelrod then hung up without so much as a good-bye.
I got out of bed, made some coffee, chain-smoked some cigars, and sat contemplating the noisy darkness outside my windows (New York City is always noisy.}
I was beginning not to like this at all, and were it not for my highly -placed acquaintance in Washington, whom I respected, I am quite sure I would have decided the whole affair had suddenly become too questionable to proceed with.
The world, back in 1975, it should be remembered, was in the grips of the Cold War. My research colleagues at Stanford Research Institute and I had speculated that the Soviet KGB would naturally be interested in what we were doing. And in our more dramatic considerations of this possibility, it was even speculated that one of us might get kidnapped or worse by that infamous, but very Smart organization.
