Flying Saucers From Mars, and

My Contact With Flying Saucers: 2 Books In One

By Cederich Allingham and Dino Kraspedon


CAN EXTRATERRESTRIALS SHOW US THE SECRETS OF TRUE HAPPINESS?

WHAT ARE THE METHODS FOR LIVING IN HARMONY WITH EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET?

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC COSMIC LAWS EACH OF US NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND IN ORDER TO SURVIVE AND EVENTUALLY FIND THEIR TRUE PLACE ON THE PATH TO PERFECTION?

Wars! Disasters! Personal Hardships - Death!

We have to deal with such devastation on a daily basis while inhabiting our physical bodies whilst living on a very imperfect, materialistic, planet. But is there a better more superior way to an individual utopia?

Is it possible that extraterrestrials have developed an inner cosmic wisdom that when shared with the human race could pave the way to establishing a virtual heaven on earth? Can they look into the true depths of our soul and see our imperfections and direct us along a more positive path in life?

Here are two books-in-one originally published during the Golden Age Of Flying Saucers which reveal the true experiences of UFO contactees Cederic Allingham and Dino Kraspedon and their all-too-fantastic meetings with alien beings from far off worlds.

Their stories are intriguing, controversial and full of awe, but in the end it is up to the reader to decide their validity.

- WHAT THEY DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW DEPARTMENT -

CIA Censors 9/11 Book

One former FBI agent is finding out firsthand that freedom of speech isn’t something guaranteed to every American. Colleagues at the CIA are keeping him from printing some of his own personal accounts in an upcoming book about the 9/11 attacks.

In his upcoming book “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda,” Ali H. Soufan wants to write that the Central Intelligence Agency could have had a chance at keeping the September 11 terror attacks from happening. Soufan says that the CIA knew about two of the hijackers involved in the al-Qaeda plot, and while that information might have been of great interest to the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency withheld the crucial information.

Specifically, Soufan says that the CIA had detailed information on 9/11 hijacker Abu Zubaydah as early as January 2000 but neglected to act on it.

Also in his memoirs, Soufan writes detailed accounts of CIA interrogations tactics that he saw brutally executed firsthand by agents, which were unnecessary and counterproductive. The agency is asking the author to remove the pronouns “I” and “me” from that chapter as if to discredit his personal accounts from specific incidents.

Unfortunately, Soufan’s stories might never make it to print if the CIA has their say. The former agent says that he is being told to take out key parts from his tales, and he believes it isn’t because of a national security scare, but because the CIA doesn’t want to be reflected poorly to the public.

As if that was even possible!

In a report released yesterday by The New York Times, Soufan’s attorneys claim that they received word that the CIA could end up “embarrassed” by the author’s allegations. Soufan responded to the Times that it is “ridiculous” that they are redacting so much material from his book, but that he will rally to have the information published in further editions.

Much of the material found in Soufan’s book has been available online and in print in the decade since 9/11, but the CIA says that doesn’t mean he can go ahead and talk about it. "Just because something is in the public domain doesn't mean it's been officially released or declassified by the U.S. government,” CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said in a statement.

Upon originally sending a proof of the 600-page manuscript to the Bureau, Soufan was told to prove that dozens of names listed in the document were not classified. He opted simply to substitute aliases for many of the names, but meanwhile the CIA sent the FBI a copy. Their response? Nearly 200 pages of suggested cuts.

With a deadline approaching, Soufan’s “The Black Banners” will hit the printing press this week, with the first edition using all of the cuts demanded by the FBI.

- KEEP YOUR EYES TO THE SKIES DEPARTMENT -

Giant Glowing "Bubble" Spotted Over Shanghai

The huge, glowing UFO spotted hovering above Shanghai, Beijing and other regions in China on August 20, has led to a debate among astronomers who are trying to explain the phenomenon.

The "white ball" was spotted about 9pm above Shanghai by pilots who reported the sightings to the East China Air Traffic Control Bureau. At almost the same time, residents in Beijing, Shanxi and Anhui provinces and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region also witnessed and photographed the similar, round bubble-like object rapidly expanding in the sky.

Yu Jun, a former editor of a scientific magazine and amateur astronomer who witnessed the object, published an analysis saying the expanding bubble likely was a phenomenon caused by the "fuel of a thruster that diffused in outer space."

Yu compared the bubble to an incident in Hawaii on June 22, when a cloud-like object rose from the horizon and expanded into a huge bubble and disappeared. Astronomers linked the bubble to the launch of an intercontinental missile from California four minutes before the object appeared.

The report quoted Phil Plait, an American astronomer, who thought that unused fuel from the missile was left in outer space and coalesced into an expanding spherical shell, which people observed as a glowing ball as it reflected sunlight.

Other astronomers, however, argued that the object was an aircraft beyond human technology after they studied the pictures taken by witnesses and drew its flight route.

"The object should be a special spacecraft which cannot be explained so far with our current aircraft technology," Wang Sichao, a researcher with the Purple Mountain Observatory under the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Nanjing, told Chinanews.com.

Wang said he had studied UFOs for 40 years and called the latest incident one of the 20 most significant UFO events he had ever come across.

Wang said he calculated that the object was 300 kilometers above Inner Monglia, moving at low speed when it was spotted. He said he located it by observing the position of stars behind it from pictures taken from different places.

Marian Apparitions Are Real
by Kevin Cook

The trouble with most paranormal phenomena is that they are fleeting, without any witnesses. While there have been literally millions of credible witnesses to Marian apparitions, some events experienced by me while writing a book on them were evident to me only!

Upon converting to Catholicism, I attended my first mass. I was not actually confirmed at the time, so I was not able to actually take mass, only to observe. I am from the east coast and all the Roman Churches there had medieval look to them. The church I was attending in Keller, Texas, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was very modern.

I knew it was customary for a catholic to cross themselves with holy water upon entering the church. However, owing to the modern décor of this mega church, I did not immediately locate the holy water founts. I sat down on a bench and saw the veteran Catholics applying holy water from the now identified founts.

The church was filled with parishioners, easily numbering 1800-2000. I positioned myself close to the back of the church to be able to get to the parking lot quickly. I figured with that many people it could take up to fifteen minutes to exit the parking lot.

The service ended and I made a quick exit. Stopping at the newly found holy water founts, I crossed myself with the holy water. An immediate, powerful chill filled my torso. No grand expectation of anything out of the ordinary was anticipated. I crossed myself with the holy water, as I had seen Catholics do in movies many times. If anything, the holy water application was done mechanistically.

This same phenomenon happened the second time at mass the following week. I relayed this experience to the deacon in charge of the confirmation class, and he said I was not the only person to experience this “chill” in this manner!

The second very unusual, and quirky, experience occurred at the end of the book writing process. It was early January, 2010. I had experienced internal urgings and “notions” to complete the laborious process of writing “Marian Apparitions Are Real”. The writing experience was very laborious; almost any excuse could be taken to avoid it.

We took the first two weeks of January off from my regular tree business. I used this period to finish a large part of the book. (The entire process took a year and a half). I will never be critical of authors, given what they have to endure!

I was in Barnes and Noble, completing a chapter on Our Lady of Guadalupe. I finished and got up to stretch my legs. Walking by a sales table, I picked up a Mad Magazine cartoon book. This book was actually 500 pages. I opened it right to a cartoon about Our Lady of Lourdes. This struck me as more than odd.

As soon as I got into the truck, and turned on the radio, there was a radio show on Our Lady of Guadalupe-the same chapter I just finished! There’s NO way that was a coincidence!

- REFLECTING ON THE MYSTERIOUS DEPARTMENT -

“Light From Nothing” May Point to Evidence for Strange Phenomena
by Micah Hanks

“If you want to see ghosts,” Joshua said, “then just look in the mirror.” Joshua Warren, renowned expert on ghosts and hauntings, began to explain his rationale. “Actually, we might do better to have two mirrors ‘look’ at one another instead.”

As he spoke, Warren went busily about placing two large mirrors, standing as decorations in the room where he worked, in a way so that they directly faced one another, each reflection creating an infinite hallway-like effect. “By placing these two mirrors facing one another, the light energy that is reflected back and forth between them could potentially create a sort of ‘vortex’ for strange phenomenon.”

These events occurred before a small group several years ago, in a building on the property of the Grove Park Inn. A famous hotel in Western North Carolina well known for its many alleged ghosts, the Inn had also been host to a number of paranormal conferences Warren used to present annually. A researcher who is fascinated by the unexplained, Warren often uses mirrors and other conventional devices in his investigations of haunted locations and areas known for weird happenings. However, when it comes to mirrors being able to collect strange phenomenon, there may just as well be scientific principles at play here, too.

In fact, the results of one recent study managed to determine that light could be coaxed out of empty space, when in the presence of reflective surfaces. This process relies on what is known as the “Casimir Effect,” where two metallic plates or mirrors placed in close proximity to one another can result in an attraction between the two, despite there being no charge running into the plates to create an electromagnetic force. The attraction instead seems to come from the fact that virtual photons—that is, particles of light energy that only exist for a limited time and space—exist in greater numbers outside the two plates, rather than between them. The resulting force, though miniscule, is still strong enough for scientists to be able to measure.

An interesting alternative approach to this sort of study had been proposed in the past: if a single reflective surface were moving quickly enough (close to the speed of light), it might be able to achieve the same effect. More specifically, a mirror speeding through a vacuum chamber—where air and other drifting particles are sucked out to create real empty space—should be able to collect energy from these “virtual photons.” The energy would then be reflected as light, indicating the peculiar presence of real photons. In other words, our speeding mirror would be reflecting light energy… when none really existed for the mirror to collect!

Though it is presently impossible for scientists to accelerate a mirror within a vacuum tube to near-light speeds, a team of physicists at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, still managed to find a way to test this theory. A Superconducting Quantum Interference Device, or SQUID, is a device that, by design, is extremely sensitive to magnetic fields. The team of physicists used one of these in a circuit that gave it mirror-like properties, and managed to vibrate the device back and forth several billion times each second by inducing an alternating magnetic field that ran through it. This field, changing directions very rapidly, controlled the behavior of the “mirror” at close to five percent of the speed of light. Incredibly, photons were successfully retrieved from the empty space around the device.

This experiment, while in the beginning stages, still points to the notion that there may be ways to draw energy from nothingness, or what scientists would call “the vacuum.” If this were indeed possible, might it offer a scientific potential for explaining how bizarre, as-yet unexplained energies—or even ghosts—could manifest in some locations, if the conditions were right?

- BLOOD IS THE LIFE DEPARTMENT -

Mystery of Farm Animal Mutilations in Wales

A decade of clinical animal mutilations in Wales is being investigation by pathologists who suspect aliens may be to blame.

The organisation, called the Animal Pathology Field Unit (APFU), was set up in 2001 to investigate after sheep and cattle were discovered dead with strange, surgical-style injuries. Reports have since been produced on mutilated lambs in Beddgelert, Gwynedd, slaughtered texel rams in Plwmp, Dyfed, and a farm in Bleddfa, Powys, where it is claimed 20 ewes go missing every June.

And in a plot twist worthy of Steven Spielberg-produced summer blockbuster Super 8, it is also claimed the military has moved in to find out what is going on. In the Ohio-set blockbuster the US army imprisons a confused extraterrestrial that has crash-landed on Earth before it eventually gets out on the loose.

The APFU concentrates most of its resources in the Rea valley near the border and in towns including Knighton and Llandrindod Wells, where mutilations are said to be rife.

It claims the injuries are too “sophisticated” to have been caused by predators and animals have been killed in locations which are difficult to reach without being detected.

And Phil Hoyle, of the APFU, says the curious lack of blood or footprints at the scene – despite the surgical removal of large amounts of tissue – means extraterrestrials can’t be ruled out as the cause of the attacks.

He said: “We are looking to the UFO connection and things people are describing, unconventional things entering the sea and leaving the sea.

“We have some farmers that have seen unusual lights and found animals killed in an extremely surgical way.

“These are not done by satanic cults. These are very sophisticated – whether done by aliens, military or some clandestine monitoring, something unusual is going on.”

John Duggan, a farmer with more than 700 acres of land from Monaughty near Knighton, where one of the mutilations is alleged to have taken place, said: “We do find sheep dead, usually when we find them they have been killed by wildlife, like birds.

“We haven’t seen anything surgical – it is just something dead or carved up and you might not be able to find it for two or three days.”

Mr Hoyle – who has been investigating UFOs since 1983 – said Wales, alongside the US, is one of the world’s hotspots for the mutilation phenomenon.

“We don’t know what has the ability to do this: literally to walk into an isolated area, surgically remove tissue, walk out and not leave a footprint or anything,” he said.

He said activity in the past six months had increased significantly, and claimed the military had moved in to monitor the situation.

The Ministry of Defence denied it had any personnel in Wales looking for UFOs.

A spokesman said: “There is no benefit in such investigations.”

In 2010, farmers near Shrewsbury claim to have witnessed sheep being “lasered” by unidentified light from UFOs.

They have linked the unexplained incidents, where sheep’s brains and eyes were removed, to the mysterious orange lights in the sky.

They have found sheep with “neat holes” while their brains and other internal organs were removed. Other animals have lost eyes or had their flesh “carefully stripped away”, usually on the left side.

The animal mutilation mystery in Wales

Beddgelert, Gwynedd, 2001: A lamb was found on a small farm a few miles outside of Beddgelert. A large, oval-shaped hole had been made through its left hip bone. It was roughly an inch-wide and there was a 45-degree-angled smooth “trepanning” of the bone. The field notes ask: What sort of mechanism could have achieved that?

Brook Farm, Plwmp, Dyfed, 2002: According to field notes a farmer found mutilated texel rams in the morning having inspected the animals the night before when there was no sign of anything unusual. A week before the ram attack the farmer had lost six ewes to what the APFU describes as the “usual modus operandi” which includes a jaw strip, missing tongue and hardly any blood.

Woodside farm, Monaughty, Bleddfa, Powys, 2009: Four dead ewes were found with facial strips. According to field notes there were “a number of other odd incidents down the years including an annual instance of 15 to 20 ewes disappearing without trace.” Notes state: “It should also be noted that the SAS are known to conduct training exercises in this area, again a common denominator, could they be monitoring the situation?”

- THE BEST FRIEND YOU EVER HAD DEPARTMENT -

Researchers Take On Imaginary Playmates -- For Real

A peek into one of the most intriguing childhood mysteries reveals that imaginary playmates are a staple of early development and persist well into the school years -- later than researchers once thought.

"I'm beginning to think it never goes away," said Marjorie Taylor, head of psychology at the University of Oregon and a leading researcher on children's pretend play. "What I think is it morphs into a different form."

Taylor and University of Washington researcher Stephanie Carlson explored the hidden world of imaginary companions in a study that appears in the current issue of the journal Developmental Psychology.

"The phenomenon of the imaginary friend is really misunderstood," Taylor said. "People thought it was rare -- it's not. People thought it was a red flag -- it's not."

In fact, previous studies have shown that kids who invent imaginary friends -- whether invisible beings or personified toys -- tend to have better verbal skills and better social understanding. But a lack of such pals is OK, too.

"There are lots of ways to express creativity," Taylor said.

When she and Carlson launched the study about 10 years ago, they expected only 1 in 3 preschoolers would have made-up friends. Their goal was to learn, in a follow-up several years later, how those characters drop out of children's lives.

Instead they found that by age 7, nearly two-thirds of children had had at least one imaginary friend.

Not only did fantasy friends persist after age 3 or 4, they sometimes debuted after the child reached school age.

Fabulous fakes come in wild and varied guises -- evidence that pop culture hasn't totally hijacked young children's imaginations.

One child reported having a companion named Rose -- an invisible, 9-year-old squirrel.

Another, a 7-year-old boy, described his pal "Skateboard Guy" as an invisible 11-year-old who lived in his pocket and popped up at boring moments to do tricks on his skateboard.

Other colorful (if invisible) friends included "Fake Rachel," a made-up version of a real friend named Rachel; "Sergeant Savage," a 100-year-old, sometimes-invisible G.I. Joe doll; and "Elephant," a 7-inch-high pachyderm that wore a tank top and shorts and sometimes was mean.

Some buddies are more naughty than nice. Children complained that some "friends" bothered them, hit them or wouldn't go away when they tried to read.

"One child said the friend put yogurt in her hair," said Carlson, an assistant professor of psychology.

Although make-believe was long considered the realm of little girls, it's clear that both sexes engage in fantasy play, with some gender differences. Preschool boys are more likely to take on imaginary roles, especially powerful, action-filled roles, than to play with imaginary friends. By age 7, however, the gender difference fades.

One girl, now 7, inherited her imaginary friend, "Margarine," from her older brother. Margarine first appeared as a helper on her brother's first, scary day of preschool. The boy talked so convincingly about his little mentor, his mother thought the girl was real -- until she tried to find Margarine's mother to thank her.

Margarine became a part of family lore and later followed the boy's younger sister to school.

Some kids have as many as 13 imaginary friends at one time or another, contrary to the "Calvin and Hobbes" image of a single, faithful make-believe pal.

"Our research suggested it's more of a revolving door," Carlson said. While some pretend friends fade quietly away, others "suffer this horrible demise -- like getting run over," she said.

This kind of pretend play gives young children a chance to mull over the confusing issues of life -- a process that seems to continue in different forms as people mature.

In another, as-yet-unpublished study, Taylor found kids as old as 12 with imaginary playmates. She cited a German researcher who thinks teen diarists experience a similar phenomenon when they address their musings to a specific person -- a Dear Diary writ large -- who takes on the guise of a friend.

Taylor recently interviewed about 50 adult novelists, including mystery writer Sue Grafton, to see if the same kind of relationship exists between them and their characters.

Nearly all reported that, at some point, their character seemed to come to life and be outside their control.

"We don't really know what happens down the road (with imaginary friends)," Taylor said, "but we suspect it's associated with later creativity."

Most kids, sooner or later, come to realize their make-believe buddies are not of this world.

In fact, Carlson said, some kids grew concerned about the researchers' grasp of reality during probing interviews.

"I've had several children sort of pull me aside during the interview and say, 'You know it's pretend, right?' "

- STRANGE DEATH DEPARTMENT -

Indiana Man Killed By "Free Energy" Invention

Joseph Vanhorn spent a lot of time working on science projects and tinkering in his garage.

Vanhorn, 56, died Aug. 28 from injuries suffered at his home in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

“That’s what killed him,” said his mother, Carol Vanhorn. “He was trying to make some kind of an energy creation machine.”

Carol Vanhorn called police after she heard a loud bang and couldn’t get into the garage to check on her son, according to a Fort Wayne Police Department report.

Police found Joseph Vanhorn lying on the garage floor, with a large amount of blood around him, next to a large spinning wheel in a wooden box, the report said.

Emergency responders were performing CPR on him as he arrived at the hospital, police said.

A doctor told police Joseph Vanhorn suffered a “critical injury to the top and side of his head and he was in very critical condition,” the report said.

He later died from blunt-force trauma and his death was ruled an accident, according to the Allen County Coroner’s Office.

A graduate of Snider High School, Joseph Vanhorn enjoyed riding his bike, spending time with his friends and helping his mother out around the house.

“He was kind of an introvert,” Carol Vanhorn said, adding that her son had autism and was on disability.
