Seeing is Believing!
OVER 100 NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED UFO PHOTOS! ARE THEY THE CHOSEN?
Here are well documented cases of those rare individuals who have
experienced an ongoing series of encounters with UFO occupants – and
have the uncanny ability to take remarkable photos of their craft on an
ongoing basis. – Some showing the aliens themselves!
THEY ARE KNOWN AS THE “UFO REPEATERS”. . .
From the very first UFO sighting, it was assumed that a UFO witness was
simply in the “right place at the right time” and that observing another
UFO sometime in their life would be like being stuck by lightening more
But this concept is now generally thought to be utterly false – for
there is a subset of “very special” individuals who have the uncanny
ability to “call down” UFOs at will and to even take repeated
photographs of their craft.
UFO expert Tim Beckley asks probing questions like: – Is the UFO
Repeater solely responsible for the images on film or video? Do the
aliens keep track of their “Chosen Ones” with perhaps an implanted
homing device? Or does the repeat witness blindly stumble on to a locale
that has become a “hotspot” that draws repeated UFO activity?
This book features some of the individuals who have the
described “magical and mental powers” to sustain an ongoing relationship
with other-worldly beings.
“UFO Repeaters: Seeing Is Believing! The Camera
Doesn't Lie” offers a wonderful opportunity to see and ponder dozens of
new photos taken by a tiny segment of humanity who the UFO occupants
have selected to reveal themselves to on a one to one basis over a long
period of time.

Elon Musk Fears Robots Will Make Human's Their Pets
Robots will use humans as pets once they achieve a subset of artificial intelligence known as 'superintelligence'.
is according to SpaceX-founder Elon Musk who claims that when computers
become smarter than people, they will treat them like 'pet Labradors'.
comments were made in a recent interview with scientist Neil deGrasse
Tyson, who added that computers could choose to breed docile humans and
eradicate the violent ones.
Elon Musk has already likened artificial intelligence to 'summoning the demon'.
But in his latest interview, Musk said his fears revolve around something known as superintelligence.
according to author Nick Bostrom, is 'any intellect that greatly exceed
the cognitive performance of humans in virtually all domains of
'I mean, we won't be like a pet Labrador if we're lucky,' Musk told Tyson, adding that we may become lab pets to them.
Tyson theorised that robots will 'Get rid of the violent ones...And then breed the docile humans'.
Musk also said humanity needs to be careful about what it programs superintelligent robots to do.
He uses the example of asking them to find out what makes people happy.
'It may conclude that all unhappy humans should be terminated,' Musk said.
that we should all be captured with dopamine and serotonin directly
injected into our brains to maximise happiness because it's concluded
that dopamine and serotonin are what cause happiness, therefore

it issued a stark warning that research into the rewards of AI had to
be matched with an equal effort to avoid the potential damage it could

from driving in years to come and all cars will, instead, be controlled
The entrepreneur claimed that computers will one day
do a much better job of driving and that humans are simply 'too
dangerous' behind the wheel.
In 1965, the eminent statistician
I. J. Good proposed that artificial intelligence beyond some threshold
level would snowball, creating a cascade of self-improvements: AIs
would be smart enough to make themselves smarter, and, having made
themselves smarter, would spot still further opportunities for
improvement, leaving human abilities far behind.
this process an “intelligence explosion,” while later authors have used
the terms “technological singularity” or simply “the Singularity”.
Scharf, in an article for Scientific America writes that it is
currently difficult to find any details on how artificial intelligence
could actually come about in the first place, and how it could become a
Hawking has suggested that it might be the capacity of
a strong AI to ‘evolve’ much, much faster than biological systems –
ultimately gobbling up resources without a care for the likes of us. I
think this is a fair conjecture. AI’s threat is not that it will be a
sadistic megalomaniac (unless we deliberately, or carelessly make it
that way) but that it will follow its own evolutionary imperative.
tempting to suggest that a safeguard would be to build empathy into an
AI. But I think that fails in two ways. First, most humans have the
capacity for empathy, yet we continue to be nasty, brutish, and brutal
to ourselves and to pretty much every other living thing on the planet.
The second failure point is that it’s not clear to me that true,
strong, AI is something that we can engineer in a pure step-by-step
way, we may need to allow it to come into being on its own.
does that mean? Current efforts in areas such as computational
‘deep-learning‘ involve algorithms constructing their own probabilistic
landscapes for sifting through vast amounts of information. The
software is not necessarily hard-wired to ‘know’ the rules ahead of
time, but rather to find the rules or to be amenable to being guided to
the rules – for example in natural language processing. It’s incredible
stuff, but it’s not clear that it is a path to AI that has equivalency
to the way humans, or any sentient organisms, think. This has been
hotly debated by the likes of Noam Chomsky (on the side of skepticism)
and Peter Norvig (on the side of enthusiasm). At a deep level it is a
face-off between science focused on underlying simplicity, and science
that says nature may not swing that way at all.
route to AI is one that I’ll propose here (and it’s not original).
Perhaps the general conditions can be created from which intelligence
can emerge. On the face of it this seems fairly ludicrous, like
throwing a bunch of spare parts in a box and hoping for a new bicycle
to appear. It’s certainly not a way to treat AI as a scientific study.
But if intelligence is the emergent – evolutionary – property of the
right sort of very, very complex systems, could it happen? Perhaps.
engineering challenge is that it may take a system of the complexity of
a human brain to sustain intelligence, but of course our brains
co-evolved with our intelligence. So it’s a bit silly to imagine that
you could sit down and design the perfect circumstances for a new type
of intelligence to appear, because we don’t know exactly what those
circumstances should be.
Except perhaps we are indeed setting up
these conditions right now. Machine learning may be a just piece of the
behavioral puzzle of AI, but what happens when it lives among the
sprawl of the internet? The troves of big and small data, the apps, the
algorithms that control data packet transport, the sensors – from GPS
to thermostats and traffic monitors – the myriad pieces that talk to
each other directly or indirectly.
This is an enormous
construction site. Estimates suggest that in 2014 some 7.4 billion
mobile devices were online. In terms of anything that can be online –
the internet of ‘things’ (from toilets to factories) - the
present estimate is that there are about 15 billion active internet
connections today (via a lovely service by Cisco). By 2020 there could
be 50 billion.
If this were a disorganized mush of stuff, like
the spare parts in a box, I think one would have little hope for
anything interesting to happen. But it’s not a mush. It’s increasingly
populated by algorithms whose very purpose is to find structures and
correlations in this ocean – by employing tricks that are in part
inspired by biological intelligence, or at least our impression of it.
Code talks to code, data packets zip around seeking optimal routes,
software talks to hardware, hardware talks to hardware. Superimposed on
this ecosystem are human minds, human decision processes nursing and
nurturing the ebb and flow of information. And increasingly, our
interactions are themselves driving deep changes in the data ocean as
analytics seek to ‘understand’ what we might look for next, as
individuals or as a population.
Could something akin to a strong
AI emerge from all of this? I don’t know, and neither does anyone else.
But it is a situation that has not existed before in 4 billion years of
life on this planet, which brings us back to the question of an AI
If this is how a strong AI occurs, the most immediate
danger will simply be that a vast swathe of humanity now relies on the
ecosystem of the internet. It’s not just how we communicate or find
information, it’s how our food supplies are organized, how our
pharmacists track our medicines, how our planes, trains, trucks, and
cargo ships are scheduled, how our financial systems work. A strong AI
emerging here could wreak havoc in the way that a small child can
rearrange your sock drawer or chew on the cat’s tail.
suggests, the ‘evolution’ of an AI could be rapid. In fact, it could
emerge, evolve, and swamp the internet ecosystem in fractions of a
second. That in turn raises an interesting possibility – would an
emergent AI be so rapidly limited that it effectively stalls, unable to
build the virtual connections and structures it needs for long term
survival? While that might limit AI, it would be cold comfort for us.
can’t resist positing a connection to another hoary old problem – the
Fermi Paradox. Perhaps the creation of AI is part of the Great Filter
that kills off civilizations, but it also self-terminates, which is why
even AI has apparently failed to spread across the galaxy during the
past 13 billion years…

The Mystery of the "UFO Repeaters"
By Sean Casteel
HUNDREDS OF AMAZING UFO PHOTOGRAPHS PROVE THEY CAN’T
ALL BE LYING!
of the most fascinating – and difficult to analyze – aspects of the UFO
phenomenon is the apparent non-randomness of ufo repeaters
coversightings and the effects those sightings have on those who
witness them. Often a long chain of events begins for the witness after
a sighting, events fraught with various synchronicities, time
distortions and lingering, newly discovered PSI abilities like
telepathy and psychokinesis.
Beginning with Kenneth Arnold’s
1947 sighting, a UFO encounter was considered to be something akin to
being struck by lightning: it was completely involuntary and extremely
unlikely to happen to someone a second time. But as the contactee
movement of the 1950s began to gather strength, a different
understanding began to emerge. Some people claimed to have ongoing
relationships with the flying saucer occupants, and the otherworldly
interlopers were even willing to pose for a few photos as well.
is precisely that group within the UFO community that the new release
from Timothy Green Beckley’s Global Communications publishing house is
concerned with. The book is called “UFO Repeaters: Seeing Is Believing!
The Camera Doesn’t Lie!” As the title implies, it is chock full of
photos by people who were repeatedly given the opportunity to take aim
and shoot UFOs with both still and motion picture cameras.
of the photos in “UFO Repeaters” are quite dramatic and will elicit
gasps of wonderment even from people already jaded by years of studying
the subject. No real attempt is made in the book to debate whether the
photos are authentic. The late alien abduction research pioneer, Budd
Hopkins, once said that we will always have difficulty in assessing the
“truth” of a UFO photo because even one that photo analysis experts
could not completely debunk would still look like something conjured by
Hollywood through the special effects department. Hopkins also said
that all we can really be sure of is ourselves, meaning that we should
study the UFO phenomenon by picking it up from the human end of the
Which “UFO Repeaters” also manages to accomplish when it
tells the personal stories of several of the contactees themselves who
became shutterbugs for the flying saucers. How and why these contactees
were “chosen” for their mission of revealing the alien presence through
the lens of the camera remains unknown, but some elusive factor unites
In his introduction, publisher and author Beckley
grapples with that and similar issues. For example, he writes, “Is it
the individual – the UFO Repeater – who is solely responsible for the
images on the film or video? Do they possess some sort of tracking
device – an implant – that the aliens use as a homing apparatus to keep
in touch with their representatives? Are some of the images ‘psychic’
in nature? Are they manifested by the Repeaters themselves? Sort of
like a poltergeist event? Or perhaps it’s that the locale is a
‘hotspot’ that draws the UFOs in, and anyone could be standing in this
location and capture weird images which are indisputably NOT anything
within the realm of the ‘normal.’ Perhaps it is a combination of all of
Stella LansingThe veteran
paranormal journalist Tim R. Swartz begins the book by getting down to
cases. For example, Stella Lansing of Palmer, Massachusetts, who had
the strange ability to “call down” UFOs and photograph them using both
still and film cameras. Many of the images were not apparent when
Stella took the pictures but instead seemed to spontaneously appear on
film. She claimed to have experienced seeing strange little men and
creatures, hearing voices speaking out of nowhere, suffering an
electric shock administered by a “shimmering figure,” and a craft
surfacing from underwater.
It was Beckley himself who gave
Stella her first brush with fame when she came to a UFO convention
Beckley helped to organize in 1967. She showed Beckley a series of home
movies that had captured what he called “eerie, phantom-like
phenomena.” One of Stella’s films seemed to show four occupants visible
through a window on the spacecraft. Other 8mm films contained
clock-like patterns of light that would overlap the frames, something
considered to be optically impossible.
Stella talked about her experiences with author Brad Steiger for his book “Gods of Aquarius.”
don’t know if they came from another planet,” Stella said, “or if they
live right within our dimension, or if they’re interdimensional – or
maybe they’re living somewhere on Earth that we haven’t discovered yet.
But whatever it is I do, it’s as if I’m programmed in some way to sense
the need to take pictures of UFOs. I feel a sudden compulsion to pick
up my camera, a sudden urgency to really grab that camera. I sense that
maybe I am being ‘told,’ but I don’t even know – I’m not consciously
aware. When I snap the shutter, that’s when I get my pictures of UFOs
or entities. Something is making me do it without my being aware of it.
I’m only aware of it after it’s happened.”
Stella continued to
see and photograph UFOs as well as to keep detailed notes even after
interest in her work had long since faded. She was always willing to
talk about her experiences, but, right up to her death in 2012, she
remained mystified by her own strange abilities. Nevertheless, the
media always enjoyed telling her story, such as the ever popular TV
series “Unsolved Mysteries.” She lives on in this clip available on
YouTube by following this link:
different UFOs filmed by Dorothy Izatt.Swartz also writes about a
Canadian woman named Dorthy Izatt who photographed an amazing array of
UFOs. What is so incredible about Dorothy’s films are the “one-frame”
images that pop up unexpectedly, showing streaks of light and other
“It all started when she saw a bright object
hovering in the sky above her house,” Swartz writes. “Dorothy went out
onto her balcony with a flashlight and tried signaling the UFO, which,
to her amazement, signaled back. When she told her friends about her
experience, no one believed her. So she went out and bought a Keystone
XL 200 Super-8 movie camera and started filming. The results were more
than 600 reels of film that skeptics, right from the very beginning,
have said were faked. But, if she is faking them, photo experts have
yet to figure out how.”
Dorothy’s films have been seen widely on
television shows like “Unsolved Mysteries” and “Sightings.” She calls
the UFO occupants “light beings,” not aliens, because “we are aliens,
Dorothy said that, from the very beginning, she could tell
when a UFO was near and that she would be compelled to get her camera
and film them. She later learned that she was being directed by
telepathic communications from the extraterrestrials.
mind-to-mind,” she explained. “They can pick up your thoughts, and I
have the ability to pick up theirs, too. There are all different types
of beings. Some are like us. You wouldn’t be able to tell the
difference if they walked among us. Some are different, but down here
on this Earth we are all different, too.”
Oddly, some people can
see the aliens when she points them out, but others can’t. She feels
her own ability to see them is the result of a special sense she
possesses. When she wants to make contact, all she has to do is
concentrate and they appear. Dorothy says she was born with this
“sense” and that she shares it with other members of her family.
though many UFO researchers try to ignore the psychic component of
UFOs,” Swartz writes, “the rejection of this key element will only
contribute to the continuing confusion that surrounds the phenomenon.
Since the 1940s, UFOs have become synonymous with spaceships and
extraterrestrials. However, this interpretation is far too simplistic
and probably reflects modern social belief structures more than science
The UFO abduction of Betty and Barney
Hill has been well-documented in books such as the “Interrupted
Journey,” by journalist John Fuller, and “Captured! The Betty and
Barney Hill UFO Experience,” coauthored by Kathleen Marden (Betty’s
niece) and longtime UFO researcher Stanton Friedman.
the Hills underwent what would become a template for alien abduction
that has been repeated for other people countless times in the years
since. The couple was taken from their car as they drove from Canada to
their home in New Hampshire, brought onboard a landed UFO, medically
examined, and then returned to their car with no conscious memory of
the strange events that had just taken place. The Hills would not
recover their memories until a few years later when a Boston
psychiatrist led them through the process of regressive hypnosis. The
use of hypnosis to unearth the buried memories of an encounter would
become another commonplace aspect of the aftermath of the alien
Although the Hill case is a familiar one
to most in the UFO community, what is not so widely-known is that,
after the 1961 encounter, Betty and her side of the family experienced
not only additional UFO sightings but also unusual harassments in the
form of house break-ins, weird telephone calls and paranormal activity.
A scientific research team convinced Betty to take part in an
experiment to see whether she could reestablish contact with her
captors. The goal was to vector in a craft to land in the vicinity of
Betty’s home. Betty attempted to reach out to the UFO occupants via
verbal and telepathic messages. The UFOs did indeed begin to appear
shortly thereafter, followed by a spate of paranormal activity that
included household items flying off of shelves, doors opening and
closing on their own, and light orbs darting through the air.
wrote that, “These things are happening to Barney and me as well as to
most of my relatives, but they have also been witnessed by other people
who were present. We do not believe in ghosts but we do believe in
space travel and life on other planets. So we wonder if these space
travelers might have the ability to be ‘unseen’ to us.”
her admirers do not realize that Betty had a “favorite spot” that she
visited frequently in order to try and communicate with and “bring
down” those beings that had taken her and Barney away so many years
previously. Her efforts resulted in a number of odd photographs that
she added to her personal collection of memorabilia but which had
skeptics wagging their tongues in annoyed disbelief.
claimed that this photograph showed an extraterrestrial who came to
visit him in New Jersey. Howard Menger’s story is the kind you hope is
true simply for the reassurance it offers about the nature of the UFO
occupants. Howard encountered the kind of beautiful, loving creatures
that seem to come right out of a children’s storybook about good
spirits taking a young boy on a fantastic adventure in a kind of
Howard was born in 1922 in Brooklyn, New
York. When Howard was ten, his parents moved the family to a spacious,
rustic homestead in rural New Jersey. Howard and his brother would
explore the nearby pastures and hills, where the paranormal activity
soon commenced. On several occasions, the youths maintained, they were
cornered by weird objects resembling Buck Rogers-like spacecraft that
appeared over the tree line and sent the boys scampering away in fear.
At one point, a ten-foot diameter disc landed close to Howard and his
brother while another larger object hovered overhead, as if to gauge
the boys’ reaction to the landed craft.
Little by little,
Howard, being more “sensitive” than his brother, started to venture out
into the pastures and meadowlands on his own. He easily made friends
with the fauna there, like squirrels and rabbits, and was particularly
attracted to specific spot near a slow-running stream that ran in the
back of the family home. On a bright, sunny day in 1932, he saw
something there that would change his life forever.
sitting on a rock by the brook,” Howard said, “was the most exquisite
woman my young eyes had ever beheld! The warm sunlight caught the
highlights of her long, golden hair as it cascaded around her face and
shoulders. The curves of her lovely body were delicately contoured,
revealed through the translucent material of her clothing, which
reminded me of the habit that skiers wear.”
In spite of the
woman’s sudden and strange appearance out of nowhere, Howard was not
frightened. He was instead “overcome by an overwhelming sense of
wonderment” that made him freeze in his tracks. He felt a tremendous
surge of warmth and love emanating from the woman and he approached her
as one would an old friend or loved one.
The woman called him by name and said she had come a long way to see him and speak to him.
said she knew where I had come from,” Howard recalled, “and what my
purpose would be here on Earth. She and her people had observed me for
a long time and in ways I would not quickly understand. When she spoke
of her ‘people,’ I still could not understand they were from another
planet. I seemed to be encompassed by the very glow, almost visible,
that emanated from her presence. I have often tried to describe it as
like seeing a Technicolor movie in three dimensions and being a part of
the action in the film.”
Again, the mysterious woman called
Howard by name and said, “We are contacting our own,” words that Howard
said would bring more joy and take on more meaning as he grew older.
“It is no fault of yours, Howard, that you cannot understand
everything. Do not worry,” she comforted him. Then her face took on an
air of sadness, and she spoke of grave changes, destruction and torment
that would move as a dark cloud over the country and the world. Before
departing, the woman said he would see her again but it might not be
for a long time. Howard returned to the same spot again often but the
lady never reappeared.
Later, while an adult serving in the
army, Howard was on vacation in Mexico when he encountered a man with
shoulder-length blond hair sitting in a cab that Howard had just
hailed. The blond man spoke to him without moving his lips,
telepathically, and told Howard that he had been selected for a series
of contacts with the aliens.
The alien warned Howard that his
life might be in danger during his military service but it would never
be necessary for him to kill anyone. This prophecy later came true when
Howard was attacked by a Japanese soldier who came at him with a
razor-sharp bayonet, cutting a hole in Howard’s tent in the middle of
the night. Howard began firing at the enemy soldier, wounding him, but
Howard would bump into his space friends nearly
everywhere he went. They looked human enough, but there was just
something odd about their appearance – something a bit “off” perhaps –
that convinced him these visitors meant what they said when they
claimed to be from other planets. They intimated to Howard that he had
been selected to become a contactee because he had some of the same
benevolent qualities about him that they had.
After the war,
Howard returned to New Jersey and his contacts increased. He met them
in his home as well as outdoors in several remote rendezvous spots
where he had been told to go. On a number of occasions, he carried a
camera with him to record some of their aerial activities. He even
managed to get some still photos of the beings approaching him, backlit
by the brightly illuminated exterior of their ship and creating eerie
As the years went on, Howard would gain fame as a
contactee, perhaps second only to George Adamski, and would write a
book called “From Outer Space To You” that remains a classic in its
genre. Though controversy continues about whether Howard was part of a
government “silence” group intent on muddying the waters regarding the
truth about the flying saucer phenomenon, his many photos are still
with us, and a goodly selection of those are featured in “UFO
Coauthor Tim Beckley admits that he is predisposed
to believing in Howard’s fanciful stories because “he was such a
charming individual . . . the type of guy who doesn’t seem capable of
lying to you.” Beckley says he lived down the road from Howard and
often heard chatter from others who had “seen and heard things” on and
around Howard’s property, despite the fact that they didn’t really hook
up with Howard himself. His rural neighbors pretty much kept to
themselves but had witnessed enough to be capable of verifying some of
the strange happenings said to have transpired in the apple orchard out
back of Howard’s Highbridge, New Jersey, home.
VillaLike the legendary Swiss contactee, Billy Meier, Paul Villa was an
unassuming gentleman of modest means who happened to capture some
striking UFO photos. Paul had no axe to grind and no desire for
publicity or fame. As so often happens in the world of UFO encounters,
Paul did not find the flying saucer phenomenon; it found him.
told UFO investigators that he would receive a telepathic message
telling him to be at a certain location, usually somewhere near his
home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When he arrived at the designated
place, the aliens would essentially “pose” for him while he took photos
with a Japanese-made camera and standard Kodak film.
of those efforts is a beautiful series of full color photos depicting
the flying saucers in all their glory. According to UFO researcher
Wendelle Stevens, Paul’s photos are quite sharp compared to most photos
of that era, which was the 1960s through the 1970s. The image size of
the saucers is large enough to show good detail and the fact that
Paul’s truck is in the foreground of some of the photos provides a
known object with which to compare the size of the saucer and to judge
its distance away from the camera.
Paul was born in 1916 of
Native American/Spanish descent. He did not complete the tenth grade
but had a good working knowledge of mathematics, physics, electricity
and mechanics and was particularly gifted at detecting defects in
engines and generators.
In 1953, while he was employed by the
Department of Water and Power in Los Angeles, Paul encountered a man
about seven feet tall who called him by name and could read his mind as
well as knowing a great many facts about Paul’s past. The spaceman
invited Paul to come aboard a metallic-looking, disc-shaped object
floating on the water nearby and Paul agreed to go.
One of the
small "scout craft" that Villa photographed preparing to land.For Paul,
the aliens were entirely human-looking, though more uniformly
attractive than Earth people and definitely more refined in face and
form. They took Paul on a tour of the saucer and said they are here on
a friendly mission to help Earth people. As his contact experiences
continued through the years, Paul was eventually invited to photograph
the ships. The aliens flew their craft slowly and hovered as Paul
snapped away. In the mid-1960s, the photos began to draw the interest
of flying saucer organizations, who debated the pictures’ authenticity
and even at times tried to prove Paul to be a fraud.
Paul took are breathtaking to look at and do appear to show genuine
flying saucers set against lovely desert scenery. There are varying
types of ships from photo to photo, which is consistent with UFO
witness accounts since the 1940s and has led some analysts to think we
are being visited by several different alien races and civilizations.
notoriety that came with being chosen to take the photos did not make
life easy for Paul, however. When he stopped at a local tavern one
evening on his way home from work and sat sipping a beer, a stranger
walked up and drew Paul’s blood with a punch in nose. His assailant
called Paul crazy for “talking to spacemen.” On top of that, unwelcome
curiosity seekers would descend on his family home and take “souvenirs”
with them when they left. All the various forms of harassment
necessitated relocating his family on several occasions.
died in 1980 at age 64. Some of his photos were never made public,
including a series that was reportedly taken on another planet. We may
never know everything the UFO occupants revealed to Paul, but the idea
that there is further photographic evidence of his to be seen is
certainly a tantalizing one.
PERHAPS THE PHOTOS ARE FREELY GIVEN?
mysterious face that appeared spontaneously on one of Stella Lansing's
photographs. “UFO Repeaters” also includes photos by and the personal
histories of other people who were selected to photograph flying
saucers and, on occasion, their occupants. Ellen Crystall, Ed Walters,
Joe Ferriere, Marc Brinkerhoff – the list goes on – were all at one
time “brought into the fold,” so to speak, and produced a continual
stream of photos that implies that there is some kind of mutual trust
and, in some cases, an apparently loving relationship with the beings
flying the ships at work here.
Why are these Repeaters granted
this kind of privileged status with the UFO occupants? Why do the
aliens seem to cancel the “terror factor” in certain cases and instead
establish a caring, compassionate bond with some experiencers that
continues throughout the mortal’s entire life? The vagaries of how
these alien choices are made continue to elude us.
But, in the
meantime, Global Communications can offer you this: a book that takes
the stories behind these photographs and the people that took them
basically at face value. There is no reason to doubt the photos’
authenticity, and many have long ago passed muster with photo analysis
experts who were forced to concede that – whether or not there really
IS an alien presence – the photos themselves were not the result of
tampering or tricks.
The aliens have chosen to reveal their
existence in many ways since Kenneth Arnold’s 1947 sighting started the
ball rolling in the modern era. If this is so, why would occasional
genuine photos not be part of that overall mix? Why would the UFO
occupants withhold that kind of verification if they were willing to
provide so many other forms of proof and confirmation?
are just beginning our tale of cosmic wonderment and will commence
forthwith in our next installment to continue revealing the truth about
the UFO Repeaters and their sincere efforts to document the reality of
the unknown through the eye of the camera.

UFOs: Microwaved to Death?
By Nick Redfern
month, April 2015, will mark the 50th anniversary of a British UFO
encounter that, while not exactly having become lost to the fog of
time, is certainly no longer addressed to any significant degree. It’s
a classic Contactee-style event that is made all the more controversial
by the possibility that it may actually have had nothing to do with
UFOs, after all. It may well have been a staged event, one in which the
witness was led to believe he had a UFO sighting. If that has caught
your attention, read on.
The story revolves around a man named
Ernest Arthur Bryant, a resident of an old village in the English
county of Devon called Scoriton. Or, as some prefer to spell it,
Scorriton. As for Devon, it’s an ancient and mysterious land, and which
is made famous by the fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle set his classic
Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles in Devon’s Dartmoor
On April 24, 1965, Bryant (who served with the
British Commandos in World War Two) saw something amazing hovering over
a field close to his home: a flying saucer. Bryant stared, shocked and
amazed for a few moments, and then made his cautious way to the field.
As he did so, and seemingly in response to his actions, the
circular-shaped craft gently touched to the ground.
arrived, a group of three, human-like beings attired in shiny, silver
suits motioned him not to come any closer. He did as he was told.
Bryant looked on, stunned, and noticed that the beings had overly long
foreheads, seemed to have problems breathing in the Earth’s atmosphere,
and, somewhat oddly, had no thumbs. One of the beings then moved
towards Bryant and reeled off typical, absurd, Space Brother-themed
spiel. The entity claimed his name was “Yamski” and that he and his
comrades hailed from Venus, no less.
The alien then made a
comment along the lines of, “If only Des were here.” Or, suggested
Bryant, it may have been “Les,” rather than “Des.” This, along with the
“Yamski” name is all very interesting, since only one day before the
encounter, the world’s most famous Contactee, George Adamski, died.
Plus, Adamski’s co-author on his Flying Saucers Have Landed book was
Also in typical Contactee/Space Brother style,
Bryant was given a “tour” of the UFO – which was, allegedly, split into
three sections. The aliens then made a cryptic statement suggesting
they would contact Bryant again. As Bryant watched from a safe
distance, the UFO then rose into the sky and vanished from sight.
Bryant was determined to keep the incident under wraps, it didn’t stay
like that for long: both the local media and UFO researchers were soon
on the case. Flying Saucer investigator Norman Oliver looked into the
matter deeply and, in 1967, Eileen Buckle penned an entire book on the
affair, titled The Scoriton Mystery. Bryant’s story would, in all
likelihood, have remained as just another Contactee case were it not
for one, notable and very strange thing.
In the late 1970s, UFO
researcher Rich Reynolds was contacted by a man named Bosco Nedelcovic,
who suggested that Bryant’s encounter had very little to do with
aliens, and much more to do with secret experimentation of a very down
to earth nature. Nedelcovic (who worked for the U.S. Department of
State’s Agency for International Development, and who also had ties to
the CIA) claimed that Bryant was the victim of a form of sophisticated
mind-control, somewhat akin to the kind of work undertaken by the CIA’s
Nedelcovic told Reynolds of a number of bogus
“UFO episodes” in both the US and the UK, in which individuals were led
to believe they had UFO encounters when, in fact, they experienced
something very different. Nedelcovic alluded to how these events
involved “visual displays, radar displacement, and artifact droppings.”
One of those events, said Nedelcovic, was the Bryant case.
also revealed how the operation proceeded, and which involved
“experimental drugs used to induce specific hallucinatory material” as
well as “microwave transmissions.” On this latter point, Reynolds was
told by Nedelcovic that “the injudicious use of microwave technology”
led to a disastrous outcome for Bryant. As history has shown, Bryant
died in 1967, from the effects of a brain tumor.
in his 1969 book, UFO: Flying Saucers Over Britain? author Robert
Chapman noted: “There remains a possibility” that Bryant “might have
had the UFO sighting planted in his mind through hypnotism.” Chapman
noted that there was “no evidence” to warrant such a belief, yet it is
interesting that he even chose to bring up the matter in the first
place – given that this was pretty much exactly what Bosco Nedelcovic
was asserting a decade or so later.
All of the above suggests
there is far more to the UFO encounter and tragic death of Bryant than
meets the eye. And, with the 50th anniversary of the incident now
fast-approaching, it would be the ideal time for someone to (A)
readdress the Bryant case and the claims of Bosco Nedelcovic, and (B)
undertake a new, in-depth study of this tragic, controversial,
and fatal affair.
The truth just might be even stranger than an alien visitation.

By David Weatherly
Pope Francis was in Naples, Italy for a public ceremony. During
his appearance, he held a relic connected to the patron saint of
Naples, Saint Januarius. The relic, a glass vial, contains the
dried blood of the saint, and, after being kissed by the pope, the
blood was shown to have liquefied—half way.
The Archbishop of
Naples, Crescenzio Sepe, proudly displayed the relic to the crowd and
proclaimed: “The blood has half liquefied, which shows that Saint
Januarius loves our pope and Naples.”
Pope Francis, well known
for his quips, responded: “The bishop just announced that the blood
half-liquified. We can see the saint only half loves us.”
headlines about this incident imply that it’s something new, possibly
connected to the current pope, but this is actually an old story.
In fact, the liquefaction of the saint’s blood has been going on for
The saint was a Roman bishop, decapitated during the persecution of Christians under the emperor Diocletian in 305 AD.
to display the saint Januarius relic are held on a regular basis, with
throngs of worshipers praying and waiting for the liquefaction of the
blood. Legend says that on the occasions that the blood remains
solid, disaster soon follows. The faithful point to examples of
this from the past, including widespread famine in 1559, the cholera
outbreak of 1833 and bombing raids by allied aircraft in 1944, all of
which occurred after the saint’s blood remained solid.
collection of blood was a common practice during periods of the
persecution of Christians. Believers would soak cloths or
articles of clothing in the blood of martyrs, or if possible, gather
the blood in vials that would later be buried with the martyr’s
body. When later Christians discovered these items, they would
give them special recognition as powerful relics.
Once removed from
the body, blood soon coagulates, spoils and dries. When the
liquefaction of the blood of saint Januarius occurs, the vial of
coagulated blood is seen to liquefy and often, bubble and froth, at
which point the cardinal announces:
“The miracle has happened.”
The church is usually packed beyond capacity for these events.
the past, the ceremony was held up to 18 times a year, but in more
recent times, that number has been reduced down to 3 times per year,
including the saint’s feast day.
Skeptics often proclaim that
the blood simply liquefies due to the heat from nearby candles, or
possibly the hands of the priest but the event has occurred in a wide
range of temperatures and each time, the speed of the liquefaction is
different. There have also been times when the blood remained solid
under identical conditions.
Further adding to the mystery of the
blood, it seems to change in volume. At times, it fills only half
of the vial, while on other occasions, it completely fills the
container. Additionally, both its color and viscosity have been
known to vary during the ceremonies. Then there’s the issue of
the blood’s weight. In experiments conducted in 1902 and 1904,
the blood was found to vary in weight, increasing as much as 25 grams
defying the laws of nature. The 1902 experiments were also used
to confirm that the substance in the vial is indeed blood.
relic of saint Januarius is not completely unique. In Italy
alone, there are almost 200 blood samples from various saints.
Many of these sample are said to liquefy on religious holidays and
during times of veneration.
The blood of St. Lorenzo (d. 258)
rests in a small flask in the right wing of the church of St. Maria in
Amaseno. Lorenzo was martyred on August 10, 258 under the order of the
Emperor Valerian (d. 260), and although he was condemned to be burned
to death on a grill, some of his blood was caught and preserved by his
fellow Christians. Each year on the anniversary of his martyrdom, the
vial is brought near the altar and locked in a glass cabinet. There, in
full view of the assembled worshippers at St. Maria, the transformation
of the centuries-old clotted blood to liquid occurs.
claims that they blood relics respond to vibration form movement and
the attention of the priest continually checking on the liquefaction
process. However, some blood relics are locked in cases and
merely observed as the process unfolds.
One interesting theory
posed to explain the varied reactions of the blood is that the human
substance responds to the focus, prayers and willpower of the gathered
worshipers, an act of mind affecting matter.
Over the years,
countless scientist have attempted to reproduce or explain the reaction
of blood relics, but so far, no “rational” explanation has been
presented. Religious believers could care less about the science,
as long as the blood continues to give the all clear and not indicate
It should be noted that, despite his humorous
comment, by the end of the current pope’s visit, the saint’s blood was
said to have completely liquefied.

The Cell Phone Stalker
it’s just a long-running prank, but the reign of terror endured by
three Fircrest families buries the needle on the creepy meter.
four months, the Kuykendalls, the Prices and the McKays say, they’ve
been harassed and threatened by mysterious cell phone stalkers who
track their every move and occasionally lurk by their homes late at
night, screaming and banging on walls.
Police can’t seem to stop
them. The late-night visitors vanish before officers arrive. The
families say investigators have a hard time believing the stalkers can
control cell phones without touching them and suspect an elaborate
hoax. Complaints to their phone companies do no good – the families say
they’ve been told what the stalkers are doing is impossible.

and Kuykendall have given the callers a name: “Restricted.” That’s the
word that shows up on their caller ID windows: on the land lines at
home, and on every one of their cell phones.
Their messages, left at all hours, threaten death – to the families, their children and their pets.
“They tell us that they see us,” Kuykendall said Tuesday. “They tell us that they know everything we’re doing.”
It’s gotten so bad the sisters’ parents have offered a $1,000 reward to anyone who identifies the culprits.

when they go to baseball games. They know the color of shirt Courtney

Darcy and Courtney’s friends, including Taylor McKay, who lives across
the street in Fircrest. Her mother, Andrea McKay, has received messages
similar to those left at the Kuykendall household and cell phone bills
approaching $1,000 for one month. She described one recent call: She
was slicing limes in the kitchen. The stalkers left a message, saying
they preferred lemons.
“Taylor and Courtney seem to be the hub
of the harassment, and different people have branched off from there,”
Andrea McKay said. “I don’t know how they’re doing it. They were able
to get Taylor’s phone number through Courtney’s phone, and every
contact was exposed.”
McKay, a teacher in the Peninsula School
District, said she and Taylor recently explained the threats to the
principal at Gig Harbor High School, which Taylor attends. A Gig Harbor
police officer sat in on the conversation, she said.
four people talked, Taylor’s and Andrea’s phones, which were switched
off, sat on a table. While mother and daughter spoke, Taylor’s phone
switched on and sent a text message to her mother’s phone, Andrea said.
Kuykendalls and Prices report similar experiences. Richard Price,
Darcy’s husband, is a 26-year military officer, assigned to McChord Air
Force Base. On a recent trip to the base, the stalkers sent him a
“McChord needs us,” the voice said.
16, one of Courtney’s close friends, is another victim of the
harassment. She tried to avoid the calls by ignoring her phone. Late
one night, she heard the phone making an unfamiliar noise. Her ringtone

families and their friends have adopted a new routine: They block the
cameras on their phones with tape. They take out the batteries to stop
the calls. The Prices and Kuykendalls returned all their corrupted
phones to their wireless company and replaced them with new ones. The
threatening messages kept coming.
Fircrest Police Chief John
Cheesman is familiar with the case and knows the families. His
department is working the case with the Tacoma Police Department and
the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, he said. The agencies filed a
search warrant for the phone records, but they didn’t reveal much. Many
of the calls and text messages trace back to Courtney’s phone, which
the family believes has been electronically hijacked.
technology allows remote monitoring of calls, according to the U.S.
Department of Commerce. Known as a “roving bug,” it works whether a
phone is on or off. FBI agents tracking organized crime have used it to
monitor meetings among mobsters. Global positioning systems, installed
in many cell phones, also make it possible to pinpoint a phone’s
location within a few feet.
According to James M. Atkinson, a
Massachusetts-based expert in counterintelligence who has advised the
U.S. Congress on security issues, it’s not that hard to take remote
control of a wireless phone. “You do not have to have a strong
technical background for someone to do this,” he said Tuesday. “They

“Why would I do that?” Courtney said. “Why would I do that to people I care about? Why would I harass my own family?”
this strange story was never solved...at least there were
no resolutions reported by the local media. Was it a hoax,
or some sort of elaborate hacking? Considering what we now
know about how U.S. intelligence groups have been spying on U.S.
citizens through their cell phones, it is not inplausable to
consider that the harrassment these families suffered could have come
from some government agency, or possibly even a third-party contractor
who got some sort of thrill by scaring innocent people. We can
speculate endlessly on what really happened, but the truth of the

- DANGEROUS ENCOUNTERS DEPARTMENT -
Policewoman Says She Was Attacked By a Ghost
A trainee police officer claims she was attacked by a ghost which grabbed and scratched her during a night shift.
The supposed attack took place in a room where other cadets have also reported spooky encounters.
One claims to have seen the figures of a woman and a girl covered in blood.
Fernanda, 25, was on midnight guard duty at the Police Training Academy
in Buenos Aires, Argentina when she claims to have heard a scratching
sound coming from one of the lecture rooms.
When she called her boss he told her to wait outside while he checked.
But seeing nothing unusual inside he told her not to worry and went back to his office.
Freaked out Fernanda said: "No sooner had my boss gone than I heard the noise again.
"I pulled my service revolver out and went in and then I saw this black shadow flying across the room towards me.
"Before I could react it grabbed me and I screamed and ran full pelt to the bathroom where I locked myself in.
"I then noticed there was blood on my face, arms and chest and realised it had scratched me."
Fernanda immediately reported the incident to her superiors who began an investigation.
police spokesman for the academy said: "This is not the first report we
have had of strange sightings in that part of the building.
"Another cadet also reported seeing a black shadow while another said she had seen a woman and a girl covered in blood.
"In one of the bunk beds she found some blood stains and claw marks and others have reported seeing ghostly figures disappear.
"But this is the first time one of our cadets has been physically assaulted.
"We are looking into it."
