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.
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.
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.
Thus, the societal resistance to Psi breaks neatly into two aspects:
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.
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.
These refer, of course, to Earth-side intelligence and Space-side intelligence. The central hypothesis of this book is that if developed Psi potentials would be an invasive threat to Earth-side intelligences, then developed Earth-side Psi would also be a threat to Space-side intelligences. After all, in that telepathy, for example, is invasively defined as reading minds, the distinction between reading Earth-side minds and Space-side minds would be very narrow.
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 Tabochaya Tribuna, 29, dated April 1990.
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.
The Big Thing left them in the mists - and went who knows where?
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 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.”
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.
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.
Six of these thirteen factors were given scientific substantiation by 1975, which is the year that the events narrated in this book begin.
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.
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.
I both admired and respected him. He vas 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.
Now there was a pause at his end of the telephone.
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.
I was just about to ask why I should get to Washington by noon, en 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.
I said I was.
I sat in silence.
But I couldn’t resist one question, which seemed a logical one.
And Mr. Axelrod then hung up without so much as a good-bye.
If I had not been convinced before that I was getting into something suspicious, I was now certain. For the guy who handed me the card stared at me with burning green eyes, which clearly indicated he meant business. I didn’t dare speak. He was young, and looked like he had been produced as a fashion model for a Marine basic-training camp - which is to say, tallish, hunky, serious, and complacent in his ability to kill very quietly.
As it turned out, we were, I think, the center car between that stayed with us as we moved through the clogged streets. Once we left Washington proper, the twin pulled out yet another card which read something like: Please do not take it personally, but we are required to check your person and clothing for weapons or bugs.
They then proceeded to check everything, even unzipping my pants and peeking briefly into my shorts. After which, they both initialed the mysterious check-sheet.
At this point, I thought of doom. Yet, silly as it seemed, I WAS hungry, even if my stomach was in knots. I ate. Although my hands were now shaking a little, the twins pretended not to notice.
I was, well, terrified by now, and don’t mind admitting it.
Mr. Axelrod was a jolly-guy type, smiling, with kindly eyes, but dressed in a dark green jumpsuit of some kind. He reminded me of a certain Captain McBee I had worked with while in Korea.
Mustering what dignity could, which really was not much, I croaked out:
Mr. Axelrod smiled.
A thousand bucks a DAY!!! I perked up - and stopped croaking -and even tried to say something sensible.
Mr. Axelrod paused to let that sink in, and then continued.
For the record here, other groups had invited to work on many other kinds sensitive projects, and had even signed non-disclosure agreements. So, except for the ultra-secrecy of this one, which I thought merely overly dramatic, it was not all that unusual.
I hardly knew what to say by this time. So, bravely, I ventured, "I guess that depends on the work... or the task, or whatever it is.”
Mr. Axelrod smiled again.
I decided to ask no more questions. Presumably, I had been observed ever since I left New York. Whatever was happening must be important, since it obviously was costing someone a great amount of dollar/man-hours.
I decided to relax.
Axel had his fingers pressed against his lips. He was no longer smiling, and seemed pensive. So I asked:
Mr. Axelrod grew pensive for a moment.
With this, I thought I noticed some kind of change in Axelrod - a slight pink color in his face. One can tell if someone is accepting or resisting. It’s a sort of well-known magnetic thing. I went on.
I paused to see if this passed inspection by Mr. Axelrod. He was very quiet and so I couldn’t tell. But finally he said “continue"
Well, why NOT I thought.
Having said my piece, I awaited Axelrod’s comment. He just sat looking at me in an odd kind of way. Suddenly I got the idea: Aha, he has some coordinates in the Soviet Union he want me to look at. After all, everyone else had them. However, Axel now resumed his smile,
After a long moment, Axel asked:
The MOON! He wants me to go to the Moon.
Axel immediately fumbled in a folder, pulling out five photographs.
So, the initial interview was over. I am not an exercise buff, but I wanted to go to the gym hoping to see more people and more of this astonishing underground faculty. I was to be disappointed.
NOW I could distinguish a DIFFERENCE between them. One had a Southern drawl, while the other had what I thought was Australian one, of all things. This set me wondering.
I thought this was merely innocent conversation.
First of all, the bed was kind of hard, and there was no sound in the room. So I listened to my heart pumping in the dark silence.
Maybe they, whomever THEY were, were looking for good places to build Moon bases. Maybe THEY had lost a secret spacecraft or something along those lines. But there I was, nervous or not, deep underground somewhere, twisting on a hard bed. Well, I’d remote view the Moon and get it over with. I didn’t expect to see much on the Moon - dead satellite, airless, dust, craters, etc.
Earlier that morning, we had discussed the experiment’s protocol, the way the session was to be conducted. Except for voicing the lunar coordinates when I asked for them, Axel was to make no verbal inputs. I talk out loud when “doing my thing,” asking MYSELF a series of questions. But these are questions to aid my intellect in trying to understand what I am experiencing. These are not questions others need to respond to while I am “at work.” I DO NOT like to close my eyes when I am doing my “thing”.
Then, slowly, as adjusting to a kind of night vision, I could begin to perceive formations. And I realized what had happened.
I began trying to make sense of the impressions I was acquiring.
He was not supposed to intrude with questions. But he had, so I went with it.
After a moment of considering these little dunes:
Have I mistaken? Axelrod seemed to be looking at me in a rather strange way, as if swallowing a desire to speak.
I was silent for a moment.
I wrote down the next coordinate-ordinate. The cliff vision faded, and in a few moments I was clearly at another place, which I could hardly believe was on the Moon.
So we had coffee and chatted up this and that. Axel, for the first time, seemed somewhat nervous. In about fifteen minutes we got back to it. I went through the same process of going away from the Sun until I was at the Moon.
He did. I wrote it slowly down, making sure I made no error in doing so. I became aware of a greenish haze, which is what I had seen before. This time I decided to go for it, for better or worse.
Axel stared at me for a moment. He was NOT smiling or looking sympathetic or tolerant. I thought it was all over with.
Axel had a pencil in his hands, which he was twirling around and around. His not-smile developed into a frown. “Shit,” he finally uttered, and broke the pencil in half. I was quite surprised and fully expected him to stand up and leave the room in dismay at my remote-viewing flub. But he did not.
Axel stared at me, saying nothing. I can be quite dense, I suppose, but something started twanging around in the denseness. I blinked at Axel.
There was no answer forthcoming from Axel. I pressed onward.
Again, no answer.
I paused, then continued:
I paused, looking at Axel. He was not smiling.
I swallowed hard, and almost chickened out at this point.
But this, as I took it, was a question Axel was asking himself more than me.
Again no answer. So I continued:
As I talked myself through all this a certain glimmer began to dawn in the recesses of my mental darkness. I suddenly stopped speaking. I stared incredulously at Axel.
Axel raised his eyebrows, trying to grin. "Quite a surprise, isn’t it?" he said. I had a sense he was trying NOT to be emotional.
Not principally because I suddenly knew the rumors were true. But because I found myself in a situation in which I, in my psychic processes, had seen the evidence for myself.
My brains began racing, putting things together. Axel, though, and the twins, and the elaborate secrecy of this whole “mission,” was the best evidence. I was now completely certain that I was physically present in some kind of ultra-ultra-ultra secret place, and that the mission of this place was to sort out extraterrestrial matters.
I knew that NASA must have photographic evidence of activities on the Moon which already confirmed the presence of extraterrestrial activity there. What I did not understand though, and I realized this only with my third cup of coffee and my tenth cigar, was why this ultra-secret project needed my services.
So, I looked at Axel, and this time I was not smiling either.
Well, Axelrod began, "if I had told you in advance, would you have thought I was loony?” Axel asked. He had a point. AND ALL OF THIS WAS REAL!
I closed my eyes as waves of goose-bumps cascaded through my body. I couldn’t control them, so I broke into tears.
I finally managed to blurt out. But my thoughts were going a mile a minute.
Axel and I sat staring at each other. Neither of us was smiling.
Of course I did NOT want to LEAVE! I wanted to understand.
But the awful truth dawned in a burst of light. I looked at him.
This time Axel was neither smiling nor not smiling. I got out of my chair and started pacing the length of the table. I started laughing.
Axel kept his cool.
I sat back in my chair, and trying to keep my hands from shaking too obviously, lit another cigar. My brain was whirling.
Before he could answer, which he obviously didn’t want to anyway. I had another brainstorm coming on.
Axel had resumed his stoic smiling-not-smiling face, I jumped out of my chair again.
At this point, and since I now felt I had a grip on everything, I suddenly felt energetically depleted.
I don’t remember even getting onto the bed, but I suppose I did, and afterward learned I had slept six hours.
Without comments, Axelrod quickly took possession of each sketch, and I was never to see them again.
No answer was forthcoming to this self-question.
Axel said in a calm, low voice, so low I hardly heard it at first.
My eyes were wide as understanding drained in,
Axel raised his eyebrows and gave a deep sigh. And, at that point, he abruptly closed his folders,
I was quite surprised. But I had not fallen of the psychic truck just yesterday.
Axel had started smiling again, but obviously was not going to respond, “Come on, Axel, loosen up a little.” But I was not to be deterred.
My voice had climbed several octaves.
I could see that Axelrod was prepared to be noncommittal. So I took the initiative.
THIS got his attention. He looked at me in surprise.
At this, I FINALLY comprehended that his earlier interest in telepathy had not been just innocent chit-chat.
FEELING rather than seeing or picking up on mind vibes. It’s more like it was, yes, sort of a dimensional thing - rather, sort of like a ripple in some kind of cross-dimensionality. Yes! That’s it! They FELT something. Not particularly ME. But SOMETHING.
I ran out of words at this point. Axelrod was looking at me with his calm, unblinking eyes. But he was lightly drumming his fingers on the table. I knew I had hit something of concern. And his next comment proved it.
I could. I did. I remember producing fifteen hand-written pages.
I have abided by that promise, well past the ten-year mark. The reasons I have now decided to write about all this will become clear in later chapters. As I departed, Mr. Axelrod asked that if he again had need of me, would I be interested. “Probably,” I responded, for how could I not be - Jesus Christ, ETs on the Moon and some official investigative agency?
Who could resist.
God! Scary, huh? What had I gotten into?
But his advice came in handy when, about three year’s later, my telephone rang.
There was a silence at the other end of the telephone, and then the caller clicked off without so much as a thank you or good-bye - leaving me with shaking hands and much in memory of Axel’s forewarning. You want a basis for paranoiac tensions?
There were two pages of the sketches, and which will be presented ahead.
FEEDBACK (OF SORTS)
Most were done in careful secrecy, and my weekly schedule along these lines was jammed with this kind of activity.
Leonard’s book was filled with veritable data, official photos, and sketches of structures etc., he created from the photos.
When it apparently came into view, they referred to it as “Annabel" - which was,
Indeed, there seem to be a number of “towers” on the Moon, and an equal amount of confusion about them. As I discovered (when I later began my Moon research in earnest), during the early 1960s NASA sent Orbiters to the Moon in preparation for the manned Apollo missions. A released NASA photo numbered Lunar Orbiter III-84M quite clearly shows two structures rising up in the Sinus Medii region. The first of these became referred to as “The Shard.” This structure towers up from the Moon’s surface for about a mile and a half.
Please note that copies of the photos referred to above can still be obtained from NASA supplier. But I've been told that evidence of the towers has by now been airbrushed out.
If I thought about it at all, it was only to have the fleck of an idea that the Leonard book constituted the feedback, and so that was that.
Viola was a notable clairvoyant whose psychic mapping of human biofields and psychic diagnosis of diseases had been confirmed by doctors and in hospitals. Viola and Shafica were very kind to me in many ways. Their combined knowledge levels seemed extensive, even endless.
Since gourmet cooking was a passion with me and with Conrad, and since I had explained the full purpose of the meal, we had to plan a superlative menu and lay in supplies for it. The supplies, of course, included reasonably good wines. Conrad drove us to very large Hollywood supermarket filled with, among other things, the lush produce of the San Fernando Valley farms and orchards. I had decided to start the meal with artichokes stuffed with crab and breadcrumbs, topped with cheese melted with a fine brandy.
Shortly, the female came out pushing a loaded grocery cart.
Conrad looked briefly at the woman - and then said the most remarkable thing.
I didn’t ask him what he thought about the two who were observing her squeezing her fabulousness and groceries into a broken-down yellow Volkswagen. I sank down in Conrad’s car and urged him to make a quick departure. The dinner for Shafica and Viola was a complete success. Naturally, after plying them, and ourselves, with copious amounts of good wine, we told them that we had seen yet another ET down at the supermarket.
All of THIS information package - without ME ever mentioning the Axelrod event.
My telephone then abruptly went dead! No good-bye or thank you, no sizzle, static, or dial tone - as if the telephone was out of order. I picked up the receiver again in a few moments: it was still dead. I took the subway to Grand Central, and joined the masses thronging around the information box in the grand and very large main hall.
At the other end was a little static, and not knowing what else to say I said “Hello.”
Linked? What did THAT mean? After which followed several beeps and noises and different forms of static.
I was about to say hello, but Axelrod’s voice became very firm.
So knowing he was going to yell at me because of my inadvertent encounter in LA LA Land, I remained quiet as a mouse.
More silence. Then:
Now it was my turn to be silent for a moment,
I nearly choked on the word.
I wanted to blurt out that the twins well knew the answer to this, since apparently THEY had her under surveillance.
A tone of desperation had entered into my voice.
I had no idea what to say, so I said nothing.
By this time sweat was pouring down my sides from my armpits.
More silence, this time a long one. My hand on the receiver was sweating. Finally:
How did he know my desk at SRI had a blotter?
Hardly. I understood nothing. But I said, as conspiratorially as possible:
I didn’t think I should tell him of our dinner conversation back in Los Angeles where apparently everyone viewed sexy extraterrestrials everyday.
Axelrod hung up. These people, whomever they were, never said good-bye or thank you. The line went dead for a moment as the “link,” whatever it was composed of, was disconnected. But then at least a dial tone came back on. The twin had apparently seen me hang up, and when I came out of the booth he nonchalantly walked by with a paper cup as if he was soliciting a hand-out.
Nervous as hell, but thinking it would appear proper, I boldly pulled out a quarter and plopped it into his cup, where it changed with other coins. I went to Lexington Avenue and flagged down a cab as fast as possible, never once looking back. But I didn’t take it directly to my address, but to the corner of Eighth Street and Third Avenue, where I loitered for some time, trying to see if I had been followed.
When I entered the men’s room, Axel boldly locked the door with a key and whispered in my ear:
I nodded yes.
He then unlocked the door. I had to think fast about what might stand up as a “convincing story" as I joined our group the dining room. But all I could really think about was how Axelrod had secured the key to the men’s room.
Axelrod was silent. It was hot, the Jeep had no air conditioner.
Even among all the astonishments available in the Axelrod scenario, nothing could have amazed me more.
Was I GAME! Who wouldn’t be.
Axel frowned through the sandwich he was eating.
So here it was again, the one-way conversation typical of all “Mr. Axelrod" encounters.
It was no use. So I settled down and tried to sleep, which I actually did even though I thought I would not. Axel woke me later. "Fasten your seat belt, we re going to land in a few moments.” I glanced out the Windows. It was dark outside, and there were no lights anywhere.
Once landed, we descended from the jet into not just cool but icy air, rich with the smell of pines. Our only lights were flashlights the twins were carrying.
So shortly I was geared up, finding there were pockets large enough to hold a cigar supply. While I was changing, the twins had started up the van and we were on our way to wherever we were going. The drive lasted about two hours. He climbed up some mountains, and negotiated some steep hair-pin curves. No one talked at all.
Finally, the van parked beneath some pines.
So we walked in what amounted to almost pure blackness, but at a good pace. At certain points, one of the twins would take my arm to help me, for instance, across a small creek or around an unseen rock.
What did that mean?
So, I was silent.
My eyeballs rolled around trying to perceive what had begun. I couldn’t see anything unusual at all, save for what appeared to be some gray fog forming up in the direction of the lake. I thought it was just morning fog coming up. This fog continued forming for about five minutes, and suddenly I saw what had "begun."
I had no time to wonder about what he meant. Indeed, some of the laser-red beams had begun blasting pine trees! Of all things! At the same time, the “thing” had now increased its size to what may have been about ninety feet wide. The whole of this so far had been accomplished in COMPLETE silence, and even the electric bolts had not “crackled."
At that moment, the two hands tightened on my shoulders and I was dragged and practically thrown back down into the arroyo. There was a terrific “pop” where we had been, and some large branches of nearby pines cascaded down on us.
That was my last sight of the triangular thing, but in that last moment I could see the WATER OF THE LAKE SURGING UPWARD - like a waterfall going upward, as if being sucked into the “machine!”
I stared at him incredulously, and just as irrationally said: “Then it’s okay to light up a cigar, huh?” which I proceeded to do by pulling out a pack from the jumpsuit leg pocket. The cigars were smashed, but while sitting on a rock I licked one of them back together and proceeded to smoke. One of the twins was limping.
The other was nonchalantly cleaning his fingernails with a small stick. As for ME! Cascades of the most forbidding anger were pulsating through my entire body, making my hands shake. My reality-hopper was in ultimate wreckage. La-la land, to the max.
Then, from a queasy area of sense-making not exactly intellectually conscious:
Axel frowned, looking at the slope of the hill we were descending.
More silent walking until we were again driving down the bumpy road in the van which had unsmashed cigars and sandwiches in it.
Without waiting for an answer, which I knew I wouldn’t get, I talked back to myself.
When we finally arrived at the airstrip, which I expected to be a secret one, I found it was thickly populated: with a USA-Alaska mail plane; three Caucasian men in plaid coats and cowboy hats lounging on the wood benches near the small hut; a police pick-up truck replete with two big-bellied “sheriffs”; ten women who I supposed were Eskimo. All these kept their distance from US.
No one was operating the cart, but the twins walked over to it and made themselves some steaming hot-dogs.
The twins had started up the jet. As we lifted off, I could see three of the Eskimo women pushing the hot-dog cart to the hut. About ten minutes later we passed over a tall range of beautiful mountains, then another, and about forty minutes later over a coastline and out over the ocean.
I looked at him and burst out laughing. He had to be kidding! The “object”, indeed.
Axel was silent, staring out the window. I went on:
Axelrod studied me, but I saw he was perspiring.
Axel twisted in his seat to get more comfortable.
Axelrod laughed, and changed the subject.
The last I saw of Mr. Axelrod was at the San José airport, and so there ends the tale of my encounters with him and his ultra-subterranean covert mission. And I cannot prove a word of that tale - and because this WAS the case.
I never intended to make a written record of it.
The article was headed by a blurb:
According to the article, all one needs is a reasonably powerful telescope, Mr. Bach recommended one with high resolution powers up to 500x, which the manufacture of Celestron telescopes says allows viewing of lunar details as small across as a football stadium. Mr. Bach indicated that his telescope was a new SPC 8-inch one set at 600x, and which enabled him to see “at one whack* many towers, nets which come and go, mining equipment, “beads” and “wires,” and whole arches. Bach noted that the structures “come and go” for reasons unapparent and inexplicable, but that they can be seen by telescope is now beyond question.
With this help, it became credible that there were structures on the moon. I eventually tracked down the telephone number of Felix Bach and had several conversations with him. In short, with a small telescope, it takes a “very experienced eye” to separate the vague structures from the lunar background. This development caused me to consider TELESCOPES, and the details that could be acquired by them. The matter of telescopes will be discussed in the following section.
They had all along been lodged somewhere in memory, but I was somewhat astonished that it took Bach’s article to bring them to the surface. The Axelrod affair had jolted me in more ways than one. Why, then, was it not easy to remember? One would have thought that the memories would constantly have been trembling on the edge of immediate recall. The second development that helped resurface the Axelrod memories was the advent of Camcorders available to the public.
Thousands of independently achieved video footage can hardly be said to have been faked- It might be possible to do so, but only with the help of rather significant amounts of money and extensive digital computer techniques.
I seem to recall, but can’t remember where, a science fiction story of social-wide amnesia having to do with hypnotic commands to FORGET. FORGET what you have seen, and ATTACK AND DESTROY those who insist they have seen it.
Anyone who can become expert in dealing with the three factors above will find his or her talents as a spin doctor much in demand. The term “spin doctor” is of rather recent vintage, of course, but the craft it represents is a quite old and traditional one. The factors briefly outlined above seem straightforward enough, especially in that the activities of spin doctors are sometimes mentioned in mainstream media.
And groups of humans flopping about in this way are known to be detrimental with regard to any number of situations.
IF human specimens were NOT information processing entities each, in their own right, then the age-old profession of spin doctoring would not be needed. As it is, though, human specimens ARE information processing entities. That this is so results in a variety of problems that sometimes stress the creative energies of spin doctors in no small way.
This is to say (as those computer efficient realize) that information that conflicts is mechanically rejected, while information that agrees is mechanically accepted. All the complexities of human mental apparatus considered, this analogy may be a weak one, to be sure. But this situation is, of course, an additional blessing for information spinning experts, or at least for proficient ones.
Lastly, all human entities seem to possess what might be referred to as an “information comfort zone.” Furthermore, most humans seem to LIKE this zone - and they don't particularly want information discomfort to be induced or intruded into it.
But if ENOUGH information based in identified and proven factoids is assembled and aligned, a somewhat unnerving answer becomes at least partially visible: WHO it is that constructs the realities is NOT at all clear.
THE MOON - EARTH’S NATURAL SATELLITE
As of 1975 and my encounter with Mr. Axelrod, I did not know much more about the Moon than any other average person. However, in the years that followed I took a deep interest in it (for reasons now somewhat obvious.)
Others did also, especially when more and more information began to be scientifically discovered and confirmed about the satellite's utter radical nature.
This radical nature is sufficient enough to seriously crack not only the egg-shells of conventional Earth-side knowledge of the Moon, but many other Space-side factors as well.
Few have any interest in them to begin with. Those who do are limited by material considerations involving telescopes as we will see ahead. But if one doesn’t know something about moons in general, then one will have no basis for recognizing something that might not be a moon to begin with.
The two inferior planets (Mercury and Venus) of our own star system have no moons. Earth has one, and each of the superior planets (Mars, Jupiter, etc.) have one or more. Since the advent of modern scientific times, the formation of the Earth-Moon system is dated at 4.5 billion years ago. There has never been any doubt about the assumption that Earth’s Moon is a natural satellite formed when Earth was formed, and hence formed from the same general materials.
As to Moon’s physical characteristics prior to the space age, all official sources of information were based on telescope and photographic studies of its surface. After the American and Soviet missions to the Moon, the instruments carried by unmanned and manned vehicles made it possible to extend more intimate knowledge about the natural satellite.
As is often stated, the resulting Apollo program then became the largest scientific and technological undertaking in history. But the general Cold War idea regarding the Moon was that the first Earth-side superpower to colonize it could rule Earth from this Space-side natural satellite. That nothing of the kind happened now is a factoid that has to be carried in mind from this point on.
The principal objective was finally achieved in July, 1969, when Apollo 11 was the first to land men on the Moon, while in July, 1971, Apollo 15 marked the first use of the Lunar Rover. In December, 1972, Apollo 17 was the LAST American craft to the Moon. At that point, American Moon visits abruptly ceased for reasons that were never adequately explained. The remaining three Apollo crafts which were already built at enormous expense, were left to rot.
This, however, was a U.S. Army project, not a NASA effort.
Thus, one can expect to find at least tacit cooperation between the sciences (which are embarrassed by anomalies) and secretive enclaves (which desire to keep the anomaly implications from public cognizance). Since the science systems and the secretive systems reinforce each other along these lines, it is difficult to grasp the end of the thread that might help unravel the resulting cover-ups. It is now helpful to reprise the main structure of the cover-up confusions.
Most official sources published after, say, 1975, indicated that the technological effort provided “increasing amounts of data” - AFTER WHICH, the official descriptions remained roughly the same as in 1957. Anyone who has an interest in tracking the existence of anomalies will realize that most of them have rather amusing factors that go along with them.
If one is INTERESTED in this kind of situation, here is a conundrum of no small magnitude - in that one has to wonder about two possibilities:
As will be mentioned ahead, in spite of the now abundant data, the fundamental anomalies of Moon geology remain somewhat confusing. Generally speaking, the Moon has three distinct layers of rock, all three combined reaching down to a depth of 150 miles. If the Moon and Earth were formed at the same time, then the material composition of the layers of both should somewhat match. However, iron is abundant regarding the Earth, but quite rare on the Moon. As the writer, Earl Ubell, noted (in The New York Times Magazine of April 16, 1972), the differences suggest that Earth and Moon came into being far from each other, and presumably under different formative circumstances.
This anomaly confuses conventional astro-physicists with regard to explaining exactly how the Moon became a satellite of Earth - and so there has not been much mention of this upsetting factoid since 1972. The sum of all these factoids seems to add up as: that Moon and Earth were formed neither at the same time nor in the same place, meaning that the Moon “came" from somewhere else.
Furthermore, the differences in the mean density imply that the Moon probably has no solid core, as does Earth, and it is the absence of the core which accounts for the density differences.
Finally, Dr. Sean C. Solomon of MIT reported (in Astronautics, February 1962) that,
Frightening? What, indeed, is the significance of that word?
“Negative mascons" translates as large areas inside the Moon where there is either matter much less dense than the rest of the Moon, or empty cavities much larger and deeper than Earth-side Mammoth Caves, etc. But, squarely stated, this unquestionably means that the Soviets and the Americans fully anticipated arriving at the Moon which was already known to be more or less hollow.
By extension, it was therefore KNOWN to be a satellite NOT of natural origin. It would have also been clear that the two Earth-side superpowers fully expected to utilize the Lunar cavities as opportunistic Moonbase habitation.
To enter into the additional anomalies, we first have to examine the matter of telescopes and high resolution photos.
Because of its costs, none of this equipment is affordable at the public level. The equipment does exist, but it is under official control.
The hard evidence exists in two forms:
The AVAILABLE low-resolution evidence is so massive and so evidential that altogether it represents a form of logical certitude that gives an unquestioned basis to the accepted logic of the dead Moon idea. It is always quite difficult to inquire into matters that have achieved strong degrees of logical certitude. There is a particular reason for this, albeit one not usually recognized. The reason is that anything that conflicts with the established logical certitude is automatically taken to be illogical, and is ultimately treated in a “can’t be” way. Thus, anything along these lines is fraught with difficulties - because what is at stake is no longer only the evidence per se, but the logical certitude derived from it.
The important distinctions between the two are not all that hard to sort out.
Some of the earlier photos were achieved via telescopes, but later ones by cameras aboard lunar craft. One can examine these numerous photographs, and see the Moon - see its “dead” surface all pockmarked with craters and barren deserts called Seas. Many photos show rills, valleys, canyons, mountains, things that stick up and cast long shadows, and large and small “domes” (which sometimes appear and disappear.)
This odiferous issue revolves around the distinction between high-resolution and lo w-resolution evidence regarding the Moon -coupled with the fact that all officially available photo-visual evidence of the lunar surface is consistently of rather low-resolution.
Earth-orbiting satellites have to be higher than 200 miles, because if not then atmospheric drag will slow them down and cause them to fall back to Earth.
The telescopes usually referred to are those of the Naval Observatory and Mt. Wilson, and Mt. Palomar. The large 200-inch reflecting telescope at Hale Observatories at Mt. Palomar became operational in 1948. But prior to that, Mt. Palomar also possessed 40-inch, 100-inch and 150-inch telescopes. The 120-inch telescope at Lick Observatory became operational in 1959. (The largest commercially available telescope is about 8-inches to 14-inches.)
But once at the Moon, cameras themselves have different resolution capabilities, depending on their focal length and depth and how distant or close they are to the lunar surface - or to what is being photographed.
There are different technical definitions for high- and low-resolution. A general understanding, however, is that low-resolution does not make smaller things visible, and that high-resolution does.
Clementine's mission was successful, and the world awaited higher-resolution looks at the Moon via Clementine’s sophisticated equipment. The world awaited in vain - and thus we don’t know what kind of bubble-gum wrappers are on the Moon. And so we will now turn our attention to the topic of what are referred to as “lunar anomalies.”
Most of the categories listed above can be further subdivided. For example, lunar weather implies the existence on the Moon of an atmosphere.
Lunar luminous phenomena includes anomalies referred to as lunar transient phenomena (LTP) - lights that come and go, and move around, and to green patches suggestive of vegetation, etc.
Corliss then points up that the,
To begin making the point of this chapter, it is necessary to elucidate the fact that the lunar light phenomena are NOT rare. They number in the thousands and some of them have been so robust as to have been observed by the naked eye.
The year 1968 seems to have some kind of relevancy to all the matters discussed so far in this section. What that relevancy consists of, however, is hard to pin down. But that there is some kind of important tale in this regard can be clearly demonstrated. The history of observations of lights on the Moon is rather long and, throughout it, accounts of the luminous phenomena were consistently logged in. In large part, the accounts were ignored by various branches of the developing sciences. But even so, up until the advent of the Space Age the luminosities could continue to be seen at rather frequent intervals.
If you were planning to send manned spacecraft to the Moon with the intention of building Moonbases, and if there were thousands of reports of sometimes awesome Moonlights, wouldn’t you want to have some idea of what they were BEFORE sending your guys to the Moon? At the very least, the larger telescopes might in some manner have been pressed into service. To think that something along those lines was NOT undertaken is just plain silly.
The catalog documented 579 lunar events between 1540 and 1967, about 75 per cent of which referred to lunar “luminous phenomena." The remaining 25 per cent referred to phenomena consisting of Moon hazes, mists, fogs and clouds that sometimes obstructed good telescope viewing of the lights, unless the lights moved beyond the foggy obscurations.
As indicated in its Introduction,
While this may be true as far as the documents four authors are concerned, the catalog most certainly DOES NOT contain all available information. Even after subtracting hundreds of reports known to be spurious, many more than 2,600 or so events rather then 579 events might have been included with complete justification.
For example, during the latter part of the nineteenth century, the Royal Astronomical Society in Britain recorded 1,600 lunar events over a mere two-year period by utilizing a 13-inch at the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
The first paragraph begins with the sentence,
This presumes that the authors DID inspect a larger number of reports. However, the first paragraph ends with the sentence “Careless reporting has been discovered in one case only." (This is identified as involving one “John Hammes and friends" of Iowa who reported seeing a lunar “volcano” on 12 November, 1878.)
Since the NASA catalog DID NOT include vast numbers of quite authentic lunar-event reports that could, even should have been included, the stated purpose of the catalog can be called into question. Certainly, the whole lunar truth, so to speak, is not reflected by the mere 579 events contained in the catalog.
In any event, the publication in 1968 by NASA of the catalog of lunar events could easily lead one to expect that there would be a follow on document AFTER the Moon was thoroughly examined up close by Orbiters and manned landings.
The observation above of course can only refer to craft publicly admitted as having been sent to the Moon.
One of the subtle importances of this is that where water is, an atmosphere can’t be far behind. And where atmosphere is, sufficient gravity must be present to hold it down.
Once having gotten to the Moon, the conditions of habitat would be important. It seems logical to assume that any lunar factor that might help ease lunar habitat problems would have officially been emphasized - in order, at least, to further increase the enthusiasm of taxpayers who were the ones actually funding the costly lunar expeditions.
There now remain two additional factors to be carried in mind.
All things considered, it is possible that the combined genius and ingenuity of the two superpowers encountered certain lunar occupational hazards that were difficult to deal with - deterrents which must have been of such impressive quality that they disrupted the best laid plans for the projected lunar conquests. So, the two superpowers, technically still in Cold Mar with each other, decided to cooperate, of all things, on building an Earth-orbiting space station.
Whatever the combined and undoubtedly enormous costs of this particular effort, orbiting space stations will always be quite fragile as compared with Moonbases - and which might have been routinely achieved by the early 1980s.
He then went on to identify a situation that most are not aware of, and which involves selenographers - those who scientifically study the physical features of the Moon.
However, in spite of many great selenographers, the Moon thereafter officially remained without atmosphere for about ten decades - even though two noted and competent astronomers published evidence to the contrary. Both astronomers were able to conclusively document the existence of the lunar atmosphere based on 150 years of scientific records and telescopic studies.
The other courageous writer was V.A. Firsoff who was acknowledged at the time to be the top scientist and authority on the Moon. His 1959 book (please note the date) was entitled Strange World of the Moon.
If the Moon had no atmosphere, they would simply vanish instantaneously as the lunar body moved in front of them. However, if there is a gaseous layer, an atmosphere, then the stars begin to flicker before they pass behind the Moon.
One of the first major objectives of NASA’s space exploration mandate was in two parts:
Now, this Dead Airless Moon target was the same Moon that was KNOWN by 1953 to have mists, fogs and clouds. Mists, fogs and clouds clearly refer to some kind of lunar weather, even if it is not akin to Earth-side weather. It thus needs to be emphasized that before 1958, thousands of historical reports existed regarding lunar anomalies (including weather phenomena.) The sum of these thousands of reports clearly established that the Moon was NOT dead and deprived of activity.
But there was little commentary about what the atmosphere permitted - such as the vegetation here and there on the lunar surface, to say nothing of the clouds, etc.
An analysis of the official secrecy regarding the Moon reveals that covert methods were employed to hide the existence of lunar water, atmosphere and several other ameliorative phenomena made possible by them. One of these additional phenomena is that seeds sprout and grow quite well in lunar soil which is rich in nutrients. This indicates the possibility that lunar colonizers from Earth-side might somehow grow their own food supplies on the Moon.
The spherical objects must have been quite large, say about one to four or five miles in dimension. Indeed, many reports of “anomalous black bodies” crossing the surface of the Moon are on historical record, some of them casting their shadows on the lunar surface as they expeditiously move along in what can only imply directed flight. Additionally, similar but much smaller self-glowing objects have been espied flying in formation in and out of this or that crater.
Two NASA photos showing extraordinary crafts seem to have escaped censorship and air-brushing. The first of these comes from Apollo 11, when, in July, 1969, its camera inadvertently captured a really neat and clear photo of a glowing, cigar-shaped object close to the lunar surface. Since the photo reveals a vapor trail, the craft must have been traveling somewhat within the lunar atmosphere. (NASA photo No. 11-37-5438.)
One possible speculation about the real nature of the cover-up is that someone on the Moon kicked Earth-side ass and seems to have “suggested” that it not come back. Any reader truly interested in the actuality of the cover-up might wish to track down a book which by now is truly rare.
His book was entitled Our Ancestors Came from Outer Space, but it includes quite a number of factoids such as:
Chatelain later commented that:
While many have laughed, or remained mute, regarding Chatelain, he constitutes a particular problem against which the cover-up cryptocracy can do little else than say “No comment.”
Rumors within NASA were that Apollo 13 carried a small nuclear charge. It was designed to be set off on the Moon for seismic testing. But the craft barely managed to return to Earth - after being disabled by a UFO that seemed intent on protecting some Moonbase “established there by extraterrestrials.” There is much more that could be said regarding the Moon.
But I'll end this section with the observation that back in 1975 when Mr. Axelrod first contacted me, he knew all of this - and probably MUCH more.
Contributing to the confusion is that when some kind of penetration into the cover-up does take place, the official organizations involved simply march on anyway, and the cover-up remains largely undisturbed. There have been very many penetrations of this kind, with the information downloading from them ending up in books. Some of the books, of course, are somewhat over-baked or slightly hysterical. But many of them are calmly organized and quite well documented.
Of course, the best possible kind of cover-up has to do with installing very tight secrecy around something. This can be successful, to the degree that outsiders have no awareness that anything is going on.
Then when people look up at the Moon, there it is - and perceptions of it are surrounded in the disarming glory of the Dead Moon Dictum. Aside from an occasional light on the lunar surface, people can’t see anything else. However, some people purchase telescopes. These are not very high-resolution telescopes, to be sure. But through them, many of them report seeing things that can’t exactly be fitted into the Dead Moon Dictum. And so the problems of managing the cover-up become a little more intricate. In the first instance of this, however, there is an easy solution at hand. This simply consists of officially trashing those telescopic observations of the Moon that can’t be fitted into the Dictum.
Returning to the bigger picture of the lunar cover-up, if one patiently sifts through all available information, it might appear that the cover-up has only to do with natural phenomena of the Moon - with the existence of lunar atmosphere, water, vegetation, etc., however minimal those might be.
This helps different, information packages to become somewhat visible, or to stand out more clearly. It also helps in the process of discovering what information packages are remaining invisible or untouched, and which are not being factored into consideration. Sometimes erecting a simple chronology of events and developments is useful along these lines. Doing so helps things fall into consecutive place.
I have laced the chronology with certain Comments that belong with it time-wise, but which of course are not mentioned in the Encyclopedia.
NASA never published any follow-ups on the lunar anomalies, even though it might have done so by virtue of the enormous amounts of information derived from the Surveyors and Orbiters.
When the manned Apollo crafts DID finally arrive at the Moon, all of the locations selected for the touchdowns were far distant from any of the sectors that had always yielded high incidence of anomalous activity.
The Soviets sent to the Moon the following unmanned Luna crafts:
Regarding the line-up above of the American and the Soviet expeditions to the Moon, the Columbia Encyclopedia states:
The trusty Encyclopedia does not come directly out and SAY that the United States abandoned its own Moon excursions after Apollo 17 in December 1972. But such is the direct implication. Thereafter, public attention was directed to the awesome potentials of Skylab, and to space craft launched, in 1971, to the planet Mars. The possibility of Moonbase quickly, and too quietly, receded from public cognizance.
As it turns out, the Earth-side space effort is NEVER discussed within the contexts, or the chronology of, UFO activity - and which, to all apparent purposes, is Space-side space activity.
Why the Moon was abandoned is a reasonable question, especially after the earlier enormous enthusiasm and billions of dollars poured into attempts to get there.
In this sense, why one does NOT go someplace if one builds the costly equipment to get there is, after all, something to be wondered about.
On the other hand, just outside the margins of the cover-up an entire counter-cover-up industry has come into existence embodied in thousands of books and articles about WHAT the cover-up is covering up. In this way, a very complicated relationship has developed between the cover-up forces and the counter-cover-up revolutionaries. It is, of course, easy to identify the obvious factors of this complicated relationship.
But it continues in power anyway. WHY it continues in power is difficult to articulate. One can really begin to wonder if, in its bigger-picture sense, the cover-up is covering up the actuality of Space-side activity of numerous kinds - one kind being the vivid and very frequent appearance of UFOs that are visible world-wide to Earth-siders.
Rulership through dividing requires that the dividing first result in rather hefty and perpetuating confusions - behind which, and through which/ the rulership can be effective.
The cover-up forces continue to “rule” anyway - largely, it might seem, because the facts apparently don't matter on the one hand, while on the other hand the resulting confusions seem to aid and abet the cover-up. This kind of rather astonishing situation suggests that if the cover-up was to be submitted to legal procedures and dragged into court where not insignificant amounts of evidence would be considered, the most probable outcome might be that the cover-up would undergo indictment.
With this announced 1997 discovery, the direct meaning is that the Apollo astronauts DID NOT land on an airless Moon as vividly proclaimed - for if the lunar atmosphere was there in 1997, it was certainly also there back in 1970, and was certainly there when it was first espied and identified back in 1920, or earlier.
We could circulate through all of the obvious and subtle issues involved by now. For example, the reason WHY the lunar atmosphere was announced in 1997, when it could have been announced in 1958 when the lunar conquest program got underway.
The confusions have to do not with facts, but with how Earth-siders think of them, or how they can be encouraged to think of them. Earth-siders, of course, think by processing packaged information rather than by processing random data that has not yet been encapsulated into a packaged form.
The distinction between random and packaged information is that the former has not achieved much in the way of meaning, while meaning has been attributed and assigned to the latter.
As it is, Earth-siders are not all that interested in data that, to them, do not mean very much.
It is far more likely that a concerted, and rather successful, attempt was undertaken with regard to TWO principal functions:
Anyone who has read any of the counter-cover-up materials will recognize that the cover-up has been exceedingly successful with regard to (1) above. But although some few might intuitively respond to (2) above, the enormous hubbub of (1) has completely obliterated the MEANING of Space-side activities - and which is so low as to be nil.
THE "TELEPATHIC" CONNECTION?
When thereafter my somewhat overworked synapses had cooled back into some kind of working order, it slowly began to dawn on me that Axelrod was actually in an uproar over what we Earth-siders refer to as telepathy - not on my part, but on the part of the female. The fact that Axelrod was quite serious with his inquiries seemed to imply that the female, or extraterrestrial, had a SERIOUS type of telepathy capable of something dire.
A type of telepathy plus, as one might suppose, a type which beyond being a channel for information exchange might also achieve something along the lines of mind bending and fried brains.
This involves the matter of the nature of consciousness as will be discussed - not individual consciousness, but Consciousness as a universal premise and life force.
TELEPATHY - THE PREEMINENT PENETRATION MODALITY
The most visible explanation for this is that telepathy penetrates MINDS - and so its development is definitely cast into troubled waters where any format or element of mental secrecy might be involved. It must be more or less admitted that most Earth-side human activities cannot really get any where unless they are mounted upon this or that format of motivational secrecy or hidden agendas.
Using this situation as a simple rule of thumb, one can then easy grasp the extent and nature of the anti-telepathic antipathies that can be generated and exerted from the top of societal pyramids down into the populations beneath them.
I have no hesitation in stating the above, because a full part of it is a fallout based on real experiences of mine. As but one significant example, for fifteen years I was involved in secret developmental Psi work at the prestigious Stanford Research Institute.
The work (in developing remote viewing) was largely funded by the U.S. intelligence agencies. Because of this, many Washington types and many noted scientists visited SRI. Very many of them met only with my colleagues, and refused to meet little Moi, so much so that they would not even take lunch with me.
This quote is NOT paraphrased. One of the amusing aspects of this is that IF telepathy is what it is, then one not need to be in the proximity of a telepath in order to have their mind penetrated. Another amusing aspect is that the funding agencies did sponsor the secret developmental work in remote viewing - somewhat on the grounds that it penetrates things, not minds.
Even if the slightly above chance statistics are jerked around a little, none of them approach anything like telepathy plus. And yet the sender-receiver model of telepathy has been clung to for a little over a hundred years.
Thus, Earth-siders project THEIR minds as conceptualized upon all potential extraterrestrial entities. In this sense, the intellectual phase-locking regarding mind is planet wide, with the final situation being that the further one moves upward in Earth-side power structures the more constricted that phase-locking becomes.
At least two observations can be made relevant to the above.
The reason might be very obvious. After all, what ET would want Earth-side telepaths penetrating Space-side affairs, especially, perhaps on the Moon so near to them?
But, with the exception of spontaneous examples of telepathy, it does not function in a high-stage way. There could be any number of reasons for this. But one reason is that the concept is at odds with what telepathy really consists of. Because that concept is assumed to be so correct, it is never questioned - resulting in failure to move beyond it.
We continue to use them two today, but in quite different ways.
It was considered that INTUITUS was greater than individuals, but that individuals had a kind of intuitive thought processing capability. Some had more of this INTUITUS than others, and so INTUITUS was a Roman extension of the great traditions in antiquity regarding shamans, oracles and seers.
This great tradition was world-wide, and far antedated even the ancient Romans and Greeks. In this very ancient tradition, it is quite probable that what we now specify as clairvoyance, intuition and telepathy were all housed within the same concept and not identified separately.
But like the ancients, we would have to specify different mental processes for different kinds of information.
We do this by indicating that there is a difference between:
The only real difference between the ancient and the modern ideas of intellect and intuition is that we today think of them as THINGS -while the ancients considered them as information-acquisition processes or functions. But there is one more quite subtle difference. When we think of intellect and intuition as things, we will then try to use our things as tools to acquire information. In this sense, we first position the tool ahead of the information it is supposed to deal with.
The results achieved by this mismatching are not much better than chance expectation. It was not until the sixteenth century that the concept of clairvoyance made its appearance in France. This commenced the distinction of separate INTUITUS factors. In French, the term was first utilized in the contexts of keen insight, clearness of insight, insight into things beyond the range of ordinary perception. These French definitions are approximate to the early Roman idea of INTUITUS.
The use, in English, of the term CLAIRVOYANCE served to detach it from insight, and then to establish a special category limited to the “seeing" THINGS. The emphasis thus shifted toward a specialty interest only as regards mental mechanisms via which clairvoyance might function.
With the English concept of clairvoyance thus established as seeing THINGS (not seeing insight, as it were) it then becomes obvious that a companion category having to do with penetrating minds was necessary. After all, human experiencing IS involved with things AND mental activities.
No such restrictions could be applied to thought-reading because of its somewhat notorious group-link characteristics. To fulfill the idea of direct action of one mind on another, the concept of THOUGHT-TRANSFERENCE appeared in England between 1876 and 1881.
However, this concept was short-lived, because it remained somewhat cluttered with a confusion revolving around the idea that some kind of trance-like rapport was involved regarding the transference of thoughts and emotions. The transfer of emotions was still quite close to group responsiveness via some kind of entrainment.
Compacted this way for research purposes, “The idea" sounds absolutely great, doesn’t it?
But this implies that there would have to be a desire to commence the consideration in the first place. After all, one has to establish the need or willingness to consider something before one can go ahead and “carefully" consider it.
The “causal explanation" was theorized as being like radio broadcasting “waves” which were sent and duplicated by receivers known as radios.
However, and as established, since telepathy cannot really exist without its major substance - thoughts - the telepathy situation still revolves around thoughts and their direct transfer from one brain to another. We now encounter the first of the major stumbling blocks. Everyone realizes that a thought contains information. And so here we are in the vicinity of a quite good analogy - a bottle of wine. Thoughts are the wine. But what does the bottle consist of?
As an addendum to the above definitions of THOUGHT, some, but not all, dictionaries also attach the term MINDFUL, the principle definition of which is “inclined to be aware.” So, one can read all of the eleven definitions of THOUGHT - and observe that thought-activity of any or all of them COULD proceed without any professed inclination to be aware of anything.
On the one hand, no real advances were achieved, while on the other hand evidence mounted indicating the theory was neither correct nor applicable.
Hyslop published a lengthy review of previous telepathy research, and ended up with a six-part statement that “There is no scientific evidence for any of the following conceptions of it":
Thus, the news that the theory of telepathy didn't work was available in 1919. Why this evidence was trashed, and why Earth-side group-think continued to advocate the unworkable telepathic theory is a question that few have ever considered.
It is perhaps unfortunate that Professor Hyslop published the six findings listed above in his 1919 book entitled Contact With The Other World. This topic indeed placed him outside of science and philosophy proper.
Thus, the UFO situation is characterized by secrecy barriers and by cover-up stratagems.
The whole of this, of course, is something of a charade in that UFOs have been seen, photographed and video-taped all along. Thus, as this chapter is being written in 1998, the general public dwelling in most nations thoroughly realize that UFOs exist, and that they are operated by intelligence.
After wending one’s way through the mysteries involved, one can be left with the rather stunning question:
After all, the UFOs are visible planet-wide (and actually on a daily basis if one reads the weekly UFO Update now available via the Internet.) Additionally, the secrecy and the cover-up are trenchantly visible, for they have been adequately exposed in a great number of books. In the light of this, about the only place the secrecy and cover-ups are being effective is among those responsible for both.
This is to say, among government, military, scientific and media hierarchies - all of which remain quite mum about whatever it is those authoritarian structures are remaining mum about. And what this IS not clear at all.
Every aspiring intelligence analyst proposing to work within secret agencies learns that one way to break a mystery that won’t yield to easy explanation is to look around for mysteries that are somehow similar.
This resulted in a 58 per cent increase in Coca-Cola sales over a six-week period.
Even so, the resulting brouhaha was absolutely enormous, and the Big Four cooperated in establishing negative information packages the purpose of which was to condition public awareness away from the reality of subliminal activities.
As Taylor wrote:
It would have seemed that Packard’s book could have been taken culturally in stride since it was no secret,
After all, the major goal of any social grouping is to achieve broad intellectual phase-locking, so as to benefit from melded group-mind responses and thereby maintain the contours and workability of the society.
As it was, the Big Four carried on in ways that amounted to a rampage against subliminal perception - and the issue was thereby slowly re-submerged beneath the awareness of public cognizance. Big Four outrage surfaced again in the early 1970s when yet another book appeared entitled Subliminal Seduction, authored by one Wilson Bryan Key. This book quickly underwent several printings by various publishing houses.
So an extra-large dose of negative deconditioning response emerged from the Big Four.
The general tenor of the Big Four deconditioning responses verged on apoplexy, which may have induced much the same in the public mind - i.e. sudden diminution or loss of consciousness, sensation, and voluntary brain motion. Even so, the Big Four reactions were so large that many began to suspect that where there was so much cover-up smoke that there must be a goodly fire. And so the book became much in demand.
Dixon’s book was never published in the USA as far as I know. Aside from the elite's obvious efficiency in managing the “public mind” this way or that, the issue of subliminal seduction is clearly attached to the issue of the group-mind. For the “public mind" is, after all a group kind of mind.
Among them, that mob consciousness responded collectively NOT to rational intellectual perspectives, but to some kind of emotional empathy that was somehow subconsciously TRANSMITTED. This, however, could not be explained unless the concept of telepathy was brought into consideration.
It is worth repeating that psychical and parapsychological research more or less bit the dust BECAUSE it proposed to research telepathy - the one human attribute that many Earth-side power structures prefer NOT to be developed. However, in order to get just a bit deeper into this possible issue, it needs to be approached from a slightly different angle. This involves the matter of consciousness.
The Encyclopedia then goes on to clarify that although the term CONSCIOUSNESS has many definitions, it,
Considering the many ambiguous and confusing definitions of CONSCIOUSNESS, the above offers a clinical efficiency that can hardly be doubted. Thus, most would take it at its apparent, and important, face value.
But the definition establishes a parameter that is quite interesting, once it is pointed up. For the definition consigns the definition of CONSCIOUS to existing within the mechanisms of the individual. This is to say, that although each person has consciousness, it is none the less individual to that person. For increased clarity, each person has consciousness, and thus each is, so to speak, an island of consciousness among multitudes of other islands of the same.
But strictly speaking, the definition is describing a FUNCTION of consciousness, not, so to speak, the “substance” of consciousness itself.
But I'll shift direction here, in order to get back to the point of this chapter, and indeed this book. If Space-side extraterrestrials do exist, and there is plenty of Earth-side evidence of them, then one has to wonder about THEIR consciousness. For example, is their consciousness the same universal stuff of human consciousness?
If this consideration is given enough extrapolation, however, it could increase the possibility that it might be to someone’s benefit to utilize the laws of advanced consciousness technology to ensure:
The above two possibilities are only very speculative, of course. But if such Earth-side mental management was indeed factual, then any ostensible success would depend on DELETING (or at least confusing) certain factors from human mental awareness. There may be many of such needed deletions. If I wanted to accomplish (1) and (2) above, I'd delete concepts of consciousness that extend beyond individual functioning.
And so the concept of Divide and Rule would then be a piece of cake. All Earth-side efforts toward discovering and developing ANY kind of telepathy would have to be vigorously stunted from the get go - because if Earth-side telepathy can penetrate Earth-side minds, then there is no reason why Space-side “minds" cannot be penetrated as well.
This is the perpetuating disenfranchisement of telepathy and all that its penetrating aspects it might imply.
POSTSCRIPT - LOTS OF WATER ON THE MOON!
The Moon is no longer the dead, arid, airless and uninhabitable satellite that ALL official sources since the 1920s have insisted it was.
Thus, if the Moon did not have an atmosphere, the mass of water particles would have nothing in which to suspend.
There is, of course, no doubt that the lunar atmosphere is not like Earth’s. But even if more tenuous and not as thick, the lunar atmosphere now OFFICIALLY exists, as does the lunar water.
Thus, the UNOFFICIAL sources of the past that referred to the existence of lunar water and atmosphere have turned out not only to be correct, but ironically vindicate their authors. One of the sardonic fallouts of this is that the materials, including official NASA photography, published by the unofficial sources (see bibliography) might be read with renewed interest. Official NASA photos that clearly show lunar clouds and mists have been available all along - dating especially from the days of the Lunar Orbiters and manned Apollo craft.
Only the amounts of the water and atmosphere would have been in question. Yet the official stance held that there was none of either. One can hypothetically deduce, as almost all eagle-eyed unofficial analysts did, that the lunar water and atmosphere cover-up was not in the name of science.
To emphasize, as most of the unofficial analysts pointed up, lunar clouds and mists drooping over crater rims can be seen in numerous official NASA photographs that were achieved during the 1960s. And so it is to be rapidly conceded (or should have been at least) that where there are clouds, then water and air are not far off. After all, it takes air and water to make clouds.
However, the same photo shows what seem be two cigar-shaped air borne objects casting shadows on the surface. The photo also shows a very large, circular dome - of which the Moon is known to have many, some of which appear and disappear.
So one wonders if the higher resolution lenses of the military Clementine craft zoomed onto THIS particular “structure.” After all, it is said that Clementine "mapped" most of the Moon. However, any high resolution lunar evidence of any kind remains absent. Of course, detecting ice BENEATH the lunar surface does represent some kind of high resolution capability.
It therefore seems logical to think that what is ON the surface might be detected, too.
And so once again we are brought back to the conflicting nature of the official and unofficial versions of the Moon.
Among these, for example, was Fred Steckling (see bibliography), whose 1981 book detailed the existence of lunar water (and much more, such as vegetation and artificial structures). The unofficial versions were of course trashed by various and sometimes nefarious activities of officialdom. Now that the existence of lunar water has been confirmed, the better of the unofficial sources are vindicated - at least as far as water and atmosphere are involved.
However, if the unofficial eagle-eyes could detect evidence for lunar water as early as 1981, then it is almost certain that the same eyes can detect OTHER lunar factors, too, and draw appropriate conclusions about them.
Thus, the Moon disappeared into anonymity behind all of the other space age projects - even though science, NASA and government insiders certainly did know of the water and atmosphere potentials that made the Moon ultra-ripe for colonization.
It certainly takes a rather simplistic gullibility to accept that the American efforts to colonize the Moon were abruptly canceled because the public, of all things, had lost interest.
As but two historical examples that help give reality to this reason, the following photos (acquired during the 1960s and identified here by NASA reference numbers) unambiguously show “ajobóme” objects near the lunar surface:
The cylindrical object in the NASA photo takes on added interest for the following reason.
During September 1998, the cable station TNT aired a quite good documentary entitled “Secrets of KGB UFO Files"
Among the several UFOs photographed by nose-cameras was a long cylindrical object moving rapidly above an Earth-side cloud formation. When the object sensed it was spotted, it rapidly put on speed and vastly out-distanced the MIGs chasing it. The TNT documentary indicated that the object had to reach speed of MACH-3 in order to do this. MACH-3 is VERY fast, and no Earth-side craft is anywhere capable of it.
Turn to the Internet, and especially to the weekly UFO ROUNDUP which provides a day-by-day listing of Earth-side UFO sightings that are reported world-wide to this remarkable Internet publication.
These two excellent Internet sources reveal an almost obscenely large number of UFO cylinders, cigar-shapes, triangles, boomerangs, discs some of them luminous, All of them are quite busy doing whatever they are doing in Earth-side ’s atmosphere, and sometimes just above tree tops. After the single, most obvious implication of these Internet sources sinks in, IF it does, one might wonder why luminous UFOs are found in the vicinity of both Earth and the Moon.
One of the strangest factors about all of this is that the topics of lunar UFOs and structures are seldom integrated into the overall Earth-side UFO situation and its very many books and discussions. Indeed, in spite of copious lunar UFO evidence, UFOlogists seems to avoid the Moon like the plague-As but one recent example, a new book came out in early 1998, entitled UFO Headquarters: Investigations on Current Extraterrestrial Activity, by Susan Wright. This book is quite nice because for those not saturated with the UFO information available, it briefly reduces massive amounts of confusion into something easy to read and comprehend. However, it makes no mention of the Moon - even though there are very many available sources regarding it.
