Hello and welcome to the tenth issue of the magazine.
We have again many interesting articles and also more pages then in the last issue (over 30 pages this month). Have a special look at my sceptical explanation of the so-called "Lacerta File" which I had sent you last month (I think I can prove now that it is a simple hoax) and at my maybe a little bit strange philosophical article about a "book called truth" (let me know, if someone understand this strange philosopical talk <g>.) Furthermore, we have in this issue an article from Gordon Creigthon - the editor of the famous British "Flying Saucer Review" FSR - about the true nature of UFO entities and an article from my co-editor David Fritz about the "ancient abduction" of the prophet Enoch. Have also a special look at the very long but excellent article about the similarities between todays abduction experiences and the famous story of "Rip Van Winkle". Thanks to Dave, Derek and Carolyn and special thanks to Gordon Creighton and Ray Cecot for the permission to use their articles for this issue of our magazine.
I was a little bit worried that some of the articles in this issue (including my own) are a little bit too weird. To be honest, it's always difficult to find the right balance between a pure scientific consideration of the phenomena and between the simple publishing of weird stories. Nevertheless, as it was written in the "UFO related sentence of the month" in the February issue "...if we hope to assess the true UFO situation, we must examine all these stories" and that's exactly what I want to try with the magazine. Read the stuff and make your own opinion about it. In addition, if someone will ask you in ten years if you can recommend him or her a really weird issue of the magazine, then tell him "Yes, issue No 10 from April 2000." <g>
Some of you may miss the article about the German UFO scene, which I had promised in the last preview. Well, I haven't written this article because I want to avoid trouble with some of the "self-styled sceptics and ufologists" from this scene and it was said to me that it is "cunning" and "unfair" to write an article about the German scene in English language. Let me say, that I'm completely fed up with the German UFO scene and with their work and that the so-called scene is it simply not worth to write anything about it. I could use now some rude words to tell you something about the scene, but this would mean that I'm not better as these bunch of stubborn ignorants (sorry for the word.) I have better things to do then to argue with these people. Wherever you live: your UFO research scene is certainly better then the German scene.
An addition only for those people, who read the magazine in the online archive on ufoinfo.com: I've added the so-called "Lacerta file" - to which the fourth article in this issue refered - to the magazine, so that you know about what I'm talking. You can find this file at the end of the magazine and I would advise you to read it first before you read the fourth article (the normal readership of the magazine had received this file already in advance via e-mail.)
To come again to an end with my as usual not very interesting foreword: I hope you will enjoy this tenth issue. If you know other UFO + PSI interested people, please tell them to contact me. I hope this issue is again well done (as usual despite my really bad English.)

UFO related sentence of the month
"Flying saucers exist. Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance."

Hello to the readers of UFO + PSI Magazine.
My name is David Fritz and I have been selected by Chris, the founder of this really great Magazine, to be the Co- Editor of the "UFO + PSI Magazine"
So let me tell you - the reader - a little bit about myself. I have been researching UFOs and other related material now for about 12 years. I have witnessed on several different occasions in my life things that could not be explained by Science, which includes UFO sightings.
Several years ago I decided to make a database of all UFO material that I came across. I have been collecting this data and have been going through it in my spare time. I also have a Religious and Occult database that I keep sifting through also. The reason for the three databases is that the material in all three databases add up to one thing (THE TRUTH). After I sift through the material and throw out the disinformation that is nicely integrated with the real truth I come up with an interpretation on the phenomenon, but this is constantly changing as new things keep popping up and added to my databases. So I keep an open mind on things and just keep getting more information. Actually this is all an investigator can do, until he comes up with something concrete.
There is concrete information out there and most of the time when one finds it, it gets ignored because its to bizarre, or people would think they would never do that! So until this Truth comes to light in all mans eyes I will keep on trying to get the information out there and this Magazine is a good way to do it. I live in the United States on Cape Cod. My e-mail is Tanis2345@aol.com. Feel free to contact me if you have any good stories or just want to chat.

Here is the sixth part of the UFO dictionary. In this issue I will try to explain some of the special UFO words, abbreviations and terms starting with the letter "F".
A word describing a disc-shaped UFO, especially in the late 40s and 50s. The term was the first time used after the sighting of Kenneth Arnold 1947 in the media (despite the fact that the objects Arnold saw and described were not disc-shaped but Arnold compared only their kind of movement with "saucers jumping over water"). The word is today very often used in jokes about UFOs and should not be used in serious articles because many UFOs are not really saucer-shaped (but some are.)
Mysterious lights which followed the allied airplanes in the years 1944/45 over Germany in World War 2 were called "Foo Fighters" from the pilots. There were rumours that these strange objects were secret weapons of the nazis, but there is no real evidence for this. Another more sceptical explanation is, that the "Foo Fighters" were electrical discharges (like St. Elms Fire) or just simple light reflexions in the windows of the planes.
Abbreviation for "Freedom of Information Act". This important law says, that the military and the secret agencies of the United States must reveal all of their documents (which don't concern the National Security) to the public. Many UFO related documents were published by use of the FOIA in the last years and you can download many of such documents from FBI.gov, CIA.gov and NSA.gov. Unfortunately, none of the released documents contained a real important truth about UFOs or about their origin.
Fire in the Sky
The title of a famous book written by Travis Walton about his abduction experience 1975. The Walton case itself is unsolved, but many sceptics believe that it was a hoax.
The "Lacerta" File - an obvious fake?
Written by Christian Pfeiler
An asteroid impact - the most likely reason for the extinction of the dinosaurs
I suppose most of you have read the weird document called "Lacerta File I" which I had sent you last week and I have received some response from you concerning that stuff. It seemed to me that I was a little bit misunderstood, when I've said in my critical foreword that the "questions and answers are always more or less logical". I did not mean not that the answers are always correct (far from it) but that they are written in a way that seemed to be logical at first sight. I suppose the person who had sent me the file will be angry that I now make a very skeptical comment on it. However, I think I should because in my opinion the transcript is a purely fictional story (but a well written one, we should call Steven Spielberg <g>) and therefore a simple hoax without any base in reality.
The following are some points, which have led me to the conclusion that the document is fraud
- The "background" of the document and of the writer/interviewer is very
- There are similar things mentioned in other "true" documents and in proven fakes.
- There are various scientific mistakes in the text.
- There are various logical mistakes in the text.
I will show you now detailed my thoughts to each of the above 4 points.
The "background" of the document and of the writer/interviewer is very mysterious.
It is claimed in the Introduction that the interview with the strange species was made from a certain Mr. Ole K. from Sweden (name from the MiB movie?) and that this Mr. K. was the author of the document, which is - as he said - the shortened form of a normally 49 pages long transcript of a 3-hour-long interview. The document was sent to me some weeks ago by an online-friend from Hamburg in a German version (which was in a very confusing form) and he said to me, that he is one of the "reliable friends" mentioned in the document, to whom Ole K. had sent the original Swedish version to translate it into various languages. He asked me if I could try to translate the document into English and publish it in my magazine, so that also the English speaking UFO community can read the "truth." I thought a translating job would be a good exercise for my English, but when I read that document the first time; I was surprised to see such a weird stuff. Nevertheless, my friend - whom I do not know personally - claimed that he had seen and read the whole transcript, the drawings and the audio tapes, but this material is at the moment not available for the public (I wondered why he had seen this stuff, because Ole K. mentioned in the text that "Lacerta" had given no permission to reveal some parts of the interview to anyone. He refused to give me further information about the things he had read in the "complete" transcript. This is strange, isn't it?)
After sending the document to all of you (with a sceptical comment) I was asked by a reader from Sweden if I can send him the so-called "original" Swedish version and if I can give him maybe either the e-mail address of the German person or of the mysterious Ole K. himself for further research. I tried to get this version, but my friend claimed that he had deleted (?) the original version after translating it into German (because he was ordered from K. to do so) and that he neither want me to give his e-mail address to others nor would he give me the e-mail address of Ole K. He said this is for his own and for the security of Mr. K. who must remain anonymous for new meetings with the reptilian being. For this odd reason, no one is able to talk with Ole K. and ask him for further information or even check his identity. To be honest, this "paranoid" behavior sounds very strange to me and I have the impression that there is maybe no original Swedish version and no Ole K. It was said in the text that the transcript was sent to certain people in Finland, Norway, Germany and France (when?) so the interesting question is: where are the other translations and where is the original Swedish version? Deleted? Not online? Disappeared without a trace? This makes no sense. I've never seen that document anywhere else online in other languages. The person from Germany claimed that he had sent his translation to some German Newsgroups and Mailing lists but I've never seen this version anywhere online. So it seemed to me that I'm the only person who had received it for translation into English and I think I'm maybe being (mis)used to help hoaxers to spread their "work" over the whole UFO community and I don't like that.
We have no real proof that Ole K. exists, we have no real proof that the document is (partly) true and we have no single evidence for any of the claims in the document. I don't know who had written this text (one person or a group of hoaxers) and I don't know how far my online-friend from Germany is involved in this case. Does he belong to the hoaxers or is he himself a "victim" of Ole K? Whoever had written this transcript: it's in my opinion an excellent work (even if you consider it as pure fiction) and it was certainly not done by a simple mystery freak after an episode of the X-Files (but the talk about "extinctions" reminded me a little bit of a current episode of that series) because it shows good insight into various ufological and scientific topics - but not everything is correct. Nevertheless, the whole dubious and unprovable background of the document and of the so-called author and the fact that it had not appeared somewhere else in the Internet (in other languages) had led me to the logical conclusion, that the transcript is a simple hoax.
There are similar things mentioned in other "true" documents and in proven fakes.
The idea of reptilian species (and other beings) living beneath the earth in large caves is nothing new in the UFO community and especially "strong" believers often claim to have seen such "reptiles" or to be in contact with them (or even to know someone who was killed by reptiles.) Sometimes, reptiles appear also in abduction stories and they seem to work together with the "grey" species there (this is mentioned in the text, when "Lacerta" replied that her kind works together with some of the alien species.) The main difference between this text and other weird documents like "The Dulce Papers" or "The Serpent Files" is, that the reptiles are generally shown as hostile and very aggressive beings in such weird papers, often in connection with the fanatic religious idea that the "Serpent" race is a demonic species of satanic servants (this occult idea - based on the biblical book of Genesis - is certainly ridiculous and has no basis in fact.) On the contrary, the female reptilian being "Lacerta" in this text seemed not to be evil, or aggressive, but only a little bit rude and offensive in her answers, which shows generally a very low opinion about the human race and their intelligence. This difference does not mean that the document is true or that the idea of "friendly" reptiles is more correct then the idea of hostile underground-reptiles, because both ideas are in my opinion not true (nevertheless, as I have said in a previous foreword, many unexplainable events are connected with caves or mine shafts, so we can't be absolutely sure that every report about such events is a hoax.)
The idea of a female reptile is also nothing completely new and encounters with such beings are often reported from abductees. As far as I know, the author and abductee Whitley Strieber mentioned such a "female reptile" in his famous book "Communion", so the idea for a faked interview with a woman from the reptilian species can come from the reading of such books. Male reptiles are mentioned in various weird documents, often as aggressive beings who attack and kill people in caves. An interesting and very weird document with many similarities to the "Lacerta File" is the transcript "A Dulce Base Security Officer speaks out" in which a (maybe non-existing) witness with the name "Thomas Edwin Costello" speaks about his experiences in the alien-occupied underground base beneath the Archuleta Mesa near the town Dulce, New Mexico. Mr. Costello claimed that the Dulce Base is inhabited by human military and workers, from grey aliens and by reptilians and in the interview he gives some information about the reptiles. As there is neither evidence for the existence of a Mr. Costello nor for the existence of an alien "base" beyond Archuleta Mesa, I suppose the whole document is an obvious fake - commented partly from a notorious group of "strong UFO believers" (or hoaxers) with the name "Branton" (some of you are maybe familiar with that name, because it appears often in strange and maybe faked documents.)
The following quotes are from the answers in the "Costello-Dulce-Document" so that you can clearly see the similarities between this text and the "LacertaFiles":
- "Some reptoids are native to this planet."
- "Reptoids rightly consider themselves as native terrans."
- "Other reptilian beings are green and some are brown."
- "His name (a male reptiles name) is difficult to verbalize, Khaarshfasht (pronounced throaty khhhah-sshh-fahsh-sst)"
- "They receive their name after they reach the age of awareness."
- "Each letter (of the name) has a personal meaning."
- "They consider Earth or Terra their "home planet."
- "They prefer their meat raw and very fresh, but they have learned to enjoy some cooked meat like beef steak."
- "The war has already begun. To start, they use "weather control" devices..."
- "We can shield ourselves against them (concerning mind control)...and controlling our own thoughts is the best weapon."
In addition, the importance of copper and magnetic fields, the reptilian symbols with the winged serpent and with the dragon-circle and the story about the genetic defects of some alien races are also mentioned in this and in many other documents without any real proof (as usual, Mr. Costello was not able to give any evidence for his claims and then he "mysteriously" disappeared). What do the many similarities mean? Is it evidence that all claims are right, because they appear in such various documents and back each other up. Or is it more evidence, that every hoaxer just read the material of his "colleagues" and uses their claims in a more or less similar form? I think in most cases is the second right, but make your own opinion (to be honest, there are some things mentioned in the Lacerta File which I've never read before, but every writer can add such new stuff to an old story.)
An addition to the reptilian name "Sssshiaassshakkkasskkhhhshhh" which is given in the Lacerta document. It sounds surprisingly similar to the male name in the Dulce document and we would certainly expect some "ssssh"-like name for a reptile. On the other hand, typing on my keyboard without looking (or even jumping on my keyboard <g>) would led to the same result after some tries. By the way, the name "Lacerta" is just the Greek word for a certain kind of reptile.
There are various scientific mistakes in the text.
The being in the text claimed to be super-intelligent and much more advanced then the human race (this is mentioned very often by "her") and she sometimes used scientific terms and explanations and strange words to show this intelligence. This pseudo-scientific talk is a very good way to convince less-educated people that the document is true (I do not mean this to be offensive, but there are always people - also in the UFO community - who do not know much about science and physics and who have the tendency to believe everything that sounds scientific and logical for them.) I will show you in the following some of the scientific mistakes in the text, which are partly connected with the logical errors I will explain later.
When the being talks about the "first war" 65 million years ago, it mentioned a "mighty experimental fusion bomb" which detonated in the ocean near Middle America and caused an "unpredictable fusion" with hydrogen. This had led - according to the claim - to a deadly radiation, to an over-production of oxygen and to a fall-out of different elements, including Iridium. So far the story from "Lacerta". The scientific truth is maybe another one. First, the word "fusion" is absolutely wrong in this case. I'm no learned scientist, but as far as I know, a "hot" fusion with something is not able to produce a fall-out of different elements, because the result of a fusion is generally only pure energy. The mentioned over-production of oxygen (from water?) can't be a product of a fusion, because the atoms of water (H²O) must be split and not fused to produce oxygen (O) and furthermore I don't think that something can produce a rare element like Iridium through a fusion with water (so the Iridium thing is only mentioned to misuse the correct scientific proof for an asteroid impact - namely the Iridium concentration in the ground which can be found also in normal meteor craters - as a "proof" for a fictional claim.) In addition, if the fusion with water were "unpredictable" I would suppose it was also "uncontrollable" (what should stop it) and this would mean, that the water of the whole planet would have fused and the whole Earth would have exploded. I know nothing about "advanced alien weapons" but as far as I can say, the word "fusion" is completely wrong in this context.
The talk about "species from another bubble" is also strange. There is a (human) theory about the origin of the universe, which includes the idea that "universes" were born like inflating bubbles from an omniversal "foam". This is a well-known but more mathematical theory and is mentioned in various popular scientific books (I think for example in "A brief history of time" and others) so there is no need to show it as an "advanced idea of the reptile species" in the text. It's a normal and human theory that any hoaxer could have read in a book. That advanced "species" can move between bubbles - maybe by use of wormholes - is again more a topic of the science fiction. Another modern (and also well-known) theory is, that matter is built not of tiny particles (quarks) but of "strings" and there appeared an odd word "matterstring/bubble changing" in the text together with a hint to the quantum theory. Well, strings inside matter are in fact a part of Quantum mechanics, but "universe bubbles" not. It seemed to me that the word "matterstring/bubble changing" is just a science fiction term, mixed-up from two absolutely different theories, which have nothing in common. The word itself makes no real sense and is also not further explained by "Lacerta."
The story about the "copper fusion" with other elements in a special radiation chamber in order to produce special force fields is in my opinion pure nonsense. The copper and magnetism story appeared often in certain weird documents, so I think the hoaxer had just again written what he had read before (with some pseudo-scientific additions.) The talk about "fields in a right angle with another field" is - as far as I know - part of Einstein's uncompleted Field Theory, but you can again read this in many books, so it's based on a real theory but not an invention of the reptilian species (let us suppose that Einstein was human <g>). Nevertheless, the whole copper-thing makes no real sense and has no scientific base. The weird talk about other "plains" and "levels" (but not other dimensions) is also strange and resembles me to some occult or metaphysical documents.
Another major mistake is so obvious that I wonder why it appeared in the document (maybe as a hint that it's really a fake?): the being said, bones and even "hands" from her species are used for Iguanodon reconstructions in our museums. You should know that the height of an Iguanodon was between 4 and 5 metres. How - in the name of all dinosaurs - can we use bones and small hands of a human-like species with a height of (as it is mentioned) 1,60 to 1,80 metres to reconstruct such huge saurians like Iguanodon. The bones wouldn't fit, so this claim is obviously not correct. I suppose the Iguanodon species was chosen, because they've really had such a "thumb"-like thing on their claws, but we can't use bones of smaller species to build large skeletons. In addition, most of the skeletons in the museums are indeed correct, because it does not happen often that bones are missing and most saurian skeletons are already complete when they are found in the ground.
A last scientific thing: the being mentioned, that the embryos of her kind grow inside an egg with a chalk hull inside the mothers womb? Why should they do this? There is no biological need for a chalk hull inside a womb and evolution - if the species is really so old - would have certainly changed this during the millions of years.
A cylindrical UFO over Germany - a flying device of the reptilian species?
There are various logical mistakes in the text.
The logical mistakes are difficult to show, because the whole text itself is a logical mistake from a certain point of view. Well, I will try to show some of the errors and illogical things:
The main logical mistake is obviously, that many interesting questions and answers are simply missing in the transcript. It's claimed that the document will show the "truth" about UFOs and aliens and the coming war (as usual) and such things, but the interviewer asked generally more unimportant or even silly questions like "What do you eat?", "What kind of clothing do you wear?" or "How do you appear on photos?" instead of more important questions. Well, Mr. K. said already in advance (to prevent such suppositions?) in his Introduction that many parts of the whole transcript are not included in this shortened form, but how should we know whether this is true or not. Maybe this is the entire transcript. A good example for an overseen and unasked question: the being replied in one case "we are not your enemy (most of us not.)" What do this "most of us not" mean? Are there reptiles who are our enemies? This is an important question, so why didn't Ole K ask this question. There are more of such "hints" in the answers, but Mr. K seems to not hear most of them and preferred to ask more uninteresting questions. Why?
Another logical mistake: Mr. K. mentioned that he had read a "full statement" about UFOs, which was given by "Lacerta" to E.F. (the mysterious first contact person. We know absolutely nothing about him) before the interview. Where is this statement? Why isn't it attached to the file? Furthermore, if Mr. K. had really read that "full statement" why hadn't he known that the UFOs are hidden with a special technological device, which can have influence on the human mind (he asked that question later in the text, despite his former claim that he had read the "full statement".) The whole text generally says nothing new about UFOs and their origin, so the information in the statement is either very very secret or there is no such statement (or it is not yet written from the hoaxer?.)
The reptilian aliens who used the fusion (?) bomb 65 millions of years ago were obviously a very advanced and intelligent race, because they were able to move between "bubbles". Well, isn't it very surprising that such an advanced species used an experimental weapon (?) which caused for them unpredictable (?) fusion process and destroyed more then they wanted? Should an advanced species not be able to predict such an event? Why should they use an experimental weapon without knowing what will happen? Maybe because they were loosing the ancient war? Or maybe because the whole story about the early war is simple fiction?
There are more logical mistakes in the text (for example according the strange behavior of that Illojiim race. This meant obviously the "Elohim" I've mentioned in some of my articles, but I'm not familiar with that spelling.) I'm sure you will find more of such mistakes if you read the text detailed and search for the mistakes. However, I can't say if all the mistakes are there because the whole transcript is a hoax or if they are there, because important parts of the transcript are missing. You should make your own opinion.
What speaks for the authenticity of the transcript?
Finally, after the revelation of all the sceptical aspects, which seems to speak for a fraud and after my critical comments about the dubious background of the transcript, we must also ask what speaks for the authenticity of the transcript? In my opinion, it's a simple hoax but maybe I'm wrong and the document reports honestly about an interview between a man and a reptilian woman (but I really doubt this.) The document shows many similarities with other "weird" documents, but there are some things, which make it not so weird as some other documents. To say it directly: it's not so weird as it is supposed to be and you can start reading it with the absolute conviction that it is just simple fiction but by the time you have finished it you would maybe have doubts as to whether it is a hoax or not. It's particularly excellently written and you really have the impression that it reports about an interview between two different beings (it's sometimes much better then other documents of that kind.)
It's a little bit embarrassing to admit that, but I've recently read a document about the "Hollow Earth theory" and about how we can prove physically that there is really an "Inner World" from where UFOs come. This document was absolute nonsense and the only thing I could do while reading it was laughing (they claimed there for example that all stars are not made of hot gas and plasma but of crystal and that this is the reason why there could be a small sun inside the planet. This is not only strange, this is extremely weird.) On the other hand, if I have a look at the "Lacerta File" it's sometimes more logical and rational than other documents, because "Lacerta" said for example clearly that "there is no "Hollow Earth" and she asked the correct question if we know "how much mass a sun must have to produce energy and light?" so she tries not to tell us anything weird about a crystal sun and a hollow earth (as it is done for example in the Costello-Dulce-Paper in an answer.) She also said the absolute right thing that most UFOs are just misidentifications of natural things and not real technological devices and that many UFOs belong to our own military, but not all (I think this is correct) while others of such documents try to convince us that nearly every unknown object in the sky is a real craft piloted by alien beings.
Another interesting thing is, that the being and the interviewer refer often clearly to certain things, like "I suppose this is not the way you dress normally" or "...chairs with a back like this chair" so that the reader have really the impression there are two beings referring to each other or to their surrounding and not just one author who wrote this fictional story alone on his desk just from imagination. The author also makes sometimes wrong suppositions like "Do the seven stars mean the Pleiades?" or he asked obviously silly questions like "How do you appear on photos?" and the being reacts then in a very offensive way, which shows a low opinion about the human race and intelligence and this is exactly what we would expect from an advanced species. I think if I would fake such a transcript I would only ask questions, to which I would know a good answer.
I will come to an end. I have shown you why I think that the "Lacerta File" is a simple hoax and I have also shown you some facts, which speak for the authenticity. In my opinion, it's not the truth but you can make your own opinion if you compare the document with this article. There is certainly a good (but not new) message in the file: go through your world with open eyes and don't believe everything the governments or the scientists tell you. But I think this message also includes: don't believe everything you can read published in the Internet and this includes the transcript itself.
(A last addition: I had overseen a very obvious mistake in the transcript. Thanks to Ray Cecot who had seen the mistake and who had informed me. When "Lacerta" talked about cylindrical UFOs of her species, she said we can see 5 bright red lights on such cigar-shaped UFOs, namely "one at the top, one in the middle, two at the end.". How much lights do we have now? Let's count. Maybe it's because I'm just an ignorant human, but I can count only 4 red lights and not 5, so this is in my opinion again a hint that the document is fraud. Or aren't advanced species not able to count correctly?)
The Name of the Truth - a philosophical article
or "Labyrinths, Libraries and a book called Truth"
Written by Christian Pfeiler
The labyrinth of truth and lie...
I recently finished reading the English version of the great novel "The Name of the Rose" by Umberto Eco, and I have some interesting thoughts about the book and its real message which I would like to share with you (Warning: strange philosophical talk). You may certainly ask, "What does this book have to do with the search for the truth about UFOs and paranormal phenomena?" Maybe nothing...or maybe everything, from a certain point of view. I will try to explain.
I think most of you are familiar with the story (if not with the very complex book, then perhaps with the simpler and shortened, but still great, movie version with Sean Connery) so I need not explain it further. It's a very symbolic and wise story about truth - about a hidden and forbidden truth. It's a story about knowledge and about the best human "weapons" used to reveal forbidden things: logic, rationality, knowledge and an open mind for new (scientific) thoughts and theories in a chaotic world which is completely controlled by the belief in supernatural and divine forces.
We have a small group of people (the monks involved in the conspiracy) who wants to hide a certain truth from the public - namely, a book that speaks about dangerous things which the public should not know, because the revelation of that secret knowledge would maybe lead to a change in the "old social system." Some people fear this change, so for this reason the dangerous "truth" is hidden in a secret and labyrinth-like library behind many riddles. The word "library" (which is normally a word for a place of revealed knowledge) becomes a symbol for confusion and for a "cover-up" of the truth. These people are "blind" to new thoughts (symbolically shown in the person of the blind old monk, Jorge of Burgos) and they also want the public to remain "blind" and not to see any other truths than those found in their own words and teachings. The danger in the forbidden book is called "laughter" in the story, but "laughter" is again just a symbolic word for knowledge and truth. Should the normal people - the public - discover the secret of laughter (explained in the second book of Poetry of Aristotle), the ruling people would maybe lose their power and control. At the end of the book, when William of Baskerville asks the old monk Jorge why he had done all this, why he had hidden the knowledge, and why he had killed people to cover-up the truth, he replies, with the excuse (I will quote from the film because his answer in the book is around 15 pages long):
"Laughter frees people from fear and if there is no fear of the devil, there is no need for God."
The "fear of the devil" is just a symbol for the power and control of the ruling group, and the "need for God" is just a need for the old world order. If the people would laugh and loose their fear - if they would know the truth about certain things - society would undoubtedly change. This is the reason for the cover-up of the dangerous knowledge because as more people "fear" the devil and don't use their own mind to search for another truth, society will remain without knowledge.
But there are people seeking this truth (namely, the learned William of Baskerville and his novice, Adso - or Adson as it is spelled in the film). These people use their own knowledge, their own mind, to find evidence for what is really going on in the remote abbey - which is again just a symbol for the whole chaotic world. These people seek and find the truth; however, no one will believe them, and so in the end everything is lost in a fire and no one is able to read the book about laughter.
Again, you may ask, what has this to do with the question about UFOs and paranormal phenomena? Maybe the truth about such things is also like a book hidden in a labyrinth and protected from people who want to cover-up the secret (not of "laughter," but of the true nature of UFOs and other things). Maybe the public is like the normal monks in the abbey, who do not care for what is really going on, and who do not want to know the truth, so if unexpected things do happen, those people search for answers in their old belief - in their fear of the devil - instead of trying to find new answers. The media of our modern world is much like the teachings of the monks involved in the conspiracy: they try to convince us that we should not search for knowledge other than the officially accepted one, because all other knowledge is wrong and a "work of the devil" (like the "crazy" stories about UFOs). Contrary to the novel, modern day media uses "laughter" not as a symbol for, but as a weapon against the truth, for example, as a tool to make UFO cases ridiculous.
I think it's impossible for us to enter the room of absolute truth - the "finis Africae" as it is called in the novel - because this room is the most hidden and protected of all in the labyrinth. The gate to this room is a special mirror, which distorts the image of everyone who looks into it, and of everything (every evidence), which is held in front of it. If the evidence and the "face" of the truth, together with the all of the surroundings in the labyrinth, are distorted in a bizarre way, how can we be sure that we are really in front of the gate? If we were able to enter and read "the book" itself - to read the absolute truth in one piece - we would have complete knowledge about UFOs and other paranormal phenomena in a very short time. I doubt that we can do this. But we can try to use our own mind - as William of Baskerville had done - to see the world with other eyes, to find the evidence, to find a way through the labyrinth of lies, fraud and cover-up, and to finally come nearer to the truth, not in one big step but in small steps over the years. We can't enter the "finis Africae," but we can certainly open the gates of the library.
Maybe the truth is not really like a single book, but more like pages or just fragments of pages, which are hidden in parts of the library and are easier to access than the "finis Africae". Sometimes we can enter the library and we are able to find some of the pages or fragments. We can try to put them together into larger sections or into short chapters. But the resulting number of pages of "truth and knowledge" is hidden behind numerous other pages, which contain only lies and fiction, so we must carefully search and use our mind to sort out the real truth from the lies. If we have collected all the pages (all the evidence), we will maybe have a small but complete book called "The Truth"; however, we will also have 20 large books called "Lies and Fraud". The problem is, if we have this truth in our hand, how can we convince the public to believe it and not to read only the books telling lies (which are maybe more colourful and more fascinating to read and, therefore, attract more people than just the simple and maybe colourless books of truth.)
William of Baskerville is sometimes called a "mad Englishman" in the novel, because he asks strange questions and uses unusual theories while he searches for the forbidden book. Today's UFO researchers are also often called mad and weird because of their new ideas and sometimes strange theories. William was right and he discovered the ultimate secret by using his mind. What about today's UFO researchers? Are they also right? Can their various theories open the gates of the library and help them through the labyrinth of lies? And if they do enter the library, can their theories help them to enter the right rooms where they can find many pages and fragments of the truth, or do they just enter the rooms that contain only fraud and deceit? And most important - if all fragments are able to be collected, will we finally be able to read the book called "Truth" or would it be written in a language that is absolutely undecipherable with no one who is wise enough to understand it? Or will the successful ones be those who want to cover everything up, burning (metaphorically) the pages of truth and knowledge due to the ignorance of the public? Will the "finis Africae" - the ultimate secret - remain unopened or can we complete or find the book? That is something we should think about.
At the end of the novel, when the abbey is burning for three days and three nights and all the collected knowledge is lost, William sits - disappointed because of his failure - amid the chaos, and talks with his novice about his thoughts. Adso finally asks:
"Do you mean...that there would be no possible and communicable learning any more if the very criterion of truth were lacking, or do you mean you could no longer communicate what you know because others would not allow you to?"
and William only answers - looking around - with the sad words
"There is too much confusion here..."
Does he mean the abbey? Does he mean the whole world? What about today's UFO research scene? Why can't all researchers work together; why are there so many different theories and ideas and lies and truths and...books...about the whole matter? How can we write or collect the pages for the single book called "Truth" if everyone searches in different corners and rooms of the library and ultimately leaves the library without sharing their knowledge with other (re)searchers? Why are so many researchers lost in rooms full of lies and deceit? Can't they find the exit? Are they lost in their theories and no one is able to help them see the truth - to find the gate to the "finis Africae"? William was certainly not speaking about the UFO community of the year 2000, but he was, nevertheless, right. There is too much confusion here...
Ancient Abductions - Part 1
Written by David Fritz
I am going to start this series with an abduction that is in my opinion the very first abduction of a human by an extraterrestrial or heavenly force. This abduction falls under the category of ancient abductions, and might I add that if I were to delve into all the ancient abductions that have happened in our past; I would have to write several volumes of books to bring all of them into one database. So I have picked one abduction from our ancient past to write about for this series. It is the abduction of the patriarch Enoch, (The Man That Walked With God) as the Bible puts it.
Enoch was a Holy man and he also was the father of Methuselah. During Enochs time on this planet the Watchers from heaven, the (Angels) that God chose to watch over the development of mankind had did a most corrupt thing in the eyes of God. These Angels came from their heavenly abode and took for themselves earthly wives. If this was not enough of a slap in the face to God; they also started to teach the woman that they had sexual intercourse with the arts of the heavens (put plainly they taught the woman knowledge that was to be reserved for mankind when mankind was capable of handling the knowledge). Instead the angels that came down to the planet altered the course of human development and excellerated the knowledge of mankind when in fact it was not to be tampered with.
These Watchers also had children with these earthly woman. These children from the union of Angels and man were thought to be the "Giants" of old. But I think that they have the translations mixed up because in Genesis of the Bible it states:
"There were giants in the earth in those days: and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown." (Gen. 6-4)
The children of the Watchers were not giants, but mighty men or renown! Not giants! The giants were on the planet and to my guess might have been the Neanderthal type of beings. I say this because the Philistines were a race of giants that constantly warred with the Israelites throughout the Bible. The children of the Watchers were the Nephelim which were probably more genetically advanced than the human inhabitance of the planet. This would cause a great conflict between the nephelim and the humans, in which most cases the humans would be under the Nephelims control or even worship them as Gods. Then you would have the case of who would be the strongest of the Nephelim which would intern lead to war, slaughter and destruction!
In the midst of all this mayhem was Enoch and the followers of Yawah, who separated themselves from the children of Cain and the Nephelim by living in the mountains. Yes, the children of Cain which may also have had Angelic blood in their veins from the Union of Satan or Lucifer and Eve (this I will not explain, you will have to read it in Genesis for yourselves and make your own conclusions).
So God decides to send down to Earth two of his angels who take Enoch on a trip to all the heavens, or all parts of the heavens. Explaining each part in detail to Enoch. Also on this trip Enoch is told the fate of the Watchers and the Nephelim. He is also told the fate of all the humans that have had any dealings with these beings. Enoch is also shown the formation of the heavens and all the planetary movements and everything there is to know about the existence of God the Angels and of creation itself. Enoch is then put back down on earth for the period of 30 days to write and relay all this information unto Gods people. With the teaching of Gods people completed, the two angels return to Enoch and whisk him up into heaven never to return.
This is an abbreviated story of the Book of Enoch. Now how does this story compare to abductions. Well 2 beings came and took Enoch to heaven. In abduction cases several beings usually show up to abduct the abductee. Then you have the visions of Enoch of what was and what will be. In most abduction cases the abductee is shown future sequences of what will happen to the earth and mankind if we do not change our ways. After the information process was completed Enoch was returned to his people to reveal on to them the message that God had given Enoch, which was of the coming destruction. In mostly all abduction cases the abductee feels as though he or she has some message to reveal onto his fellow man, that may make the difference if we live or die in the years to come.
The only part of the Enoch story that does not parallel an abduction account is the examination given to most abductees. Enoch was not examined. But why would he be examined if he was part of the first generation of man put here by God. There was no crossbreeding with Cain's people so their would be no need for an examination. Here is a little bit of the book of Enoch that gives a story of how he was taken to heaven:
This is from the Book "Forbidden Mysteries of Enoch - Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil" by Elizabeth Clare Prophet.
There are other books on the market about the Enoch account. I strongly recommend that you go out and pick up a copy of one of these books and read it. Because it is a most remarkable account of a trip through our atmosphere into space.
FBI document of the month
Written by Christian Pfeiler
Here is a new document from my FBI archive. In this memorandum from December 5 1952 you can read about a UFO sighting near to a power plant in Savannah. The witnesses observed three similar yellow objects which were travelling noiseless and a with a high rate of speed over the area.
Rip Van Winkle: Twenty Years of Missing Time- A literary perspective
by Raymond W. Cecot, Organizational Director, IRAAP (email@example.com, www.iraap.org)
The story of Rip Van Winkle - an abductionexperience?
Forward - As a student of English Literature in college, I have always been fascinated with certain authors, especially some of the American writers. Once I became interested in "unusual" phenomena (such as UFOs, alien encounters, etc) I kept a close eye on Washington Irving's tale Rip Van Winkle, and began to relate some of its aspects to the alien abduction concept. At first I would bring this up in my talks on the UFO subject, always wanting to eventually put into writing my thoughts on Rip Van Winkle's possible alien encounter. I have finally done so. Although it is not the definitive work on the subject, you may find it interesting enough to provoke further investigation. Whether you have read Rip Van Winkle before or not, I hope this inspires you to pick it up, and enjoy it from an entirely different perspective. -Ray
The concept of "alien abduction" has become the object of much scrutiny and research among UFO enthusiasts during the twentieth century. Beginning with the famous Betty and Barney Hill case in September 1961, right up to the present day, countless witnesses have come forward claiming to have been taken against their will by beings not from this earth. No one knows the cause of this abduction phenomenon -- whether it is extraterrestrial in origin, spiritual, interdimensional, or merely some sort of psychosis -- any explanation may hold the answer. Yet, the history of alien abductions in UFO research may go back as far as the advent of man on this planet.
Ancient literary works have been interpreted as alluding to visitations by alien beings and their interaction with mankind. References to visitors from space can be found in texts as far back as ancient Sumer and India, down through Greek and Roman civilizations, the Bible, and into the Middle Ages. This theme continues on with the discovery of America and its growth as a nation. Washington Irving's The Sketch Book contains a work which has become a favorite among scholars of American Literature. Rip Van Winkle, with all its simplicity and enigmatic overtones, has been read and studied by students from grade school to post-graduate level. It has been translated into numerous languages including French, German, Polish, Yiddish (to name a few), often with elaborate illustrations. Although studied from various viewpoints including historical authenticity and significance, allegorical value, humor, folklore, and politics, Rip Van Winkle is rarely, if at all, mentioned in UFO literature. If so, it is with a humorous, tongue-in-cheek air. However, Rip's apparent twenty year nap may be seen as a representation of the now familiar "missing time" syndrome. If other literary works can be viewed in this light, then Rip Van Winkle also has the potential for such an interpretation. To do so, it is necessary to approach the story, not from a traditional literary analysis, but from an underlying message which lies waiting to be revealed.
Folklore inevitably contains a kernel of truth upon which a particular story is based. In the case of Rip Van Winkle, the tale contains many elements of the modern abduction scenario. It is possible to view Washington Irving as a story teller who stumbled upon an account of some "strange" event which took place in the Catskill mountains of New York State. As with modern day alien abduction stories, the people of Irving's day would have had difficulty understanding what actually took place and putting the event into words. The folktale of Rip Van Winkle may have been the result, and the use of the fictitious character, Diedrich Knickerbocker, may have been a convenient way for Irving to relate this story without repercussion.
To this day, the Catskill Mountains are filled with tales of anomalous events. From strange lights in the forest to "little people" such as fairies and elves, the mountains have a certain "otherworldly" quality to them, bewitching to anyone who finds himself within their wooded slopes. Diedrich Knickerbocker, said to be an old gentleman from New York, was very curious about the Dutch history of the area. As presented by Irving, Diedrich Knickerbocker's research was not derived so much from books as it was from his personal contact with the local residents, who were found to possess a wealth of information regarding Dutch history and folklore. His chief merit was his scrupulous accuracy. With this allegorical perspective in mind, the examination of Rip Van Winkle in light of the alien abduction phenomenon becomes one of interpreting both the literal text and the underlying meaning. It may very well be that Irving is trying to relate a story which is as difficult to accept as it is to understand.
In order to keep the events in the Rip Van Winkle story close to the alien abduction perspective, the relationship will best be seen by juxtaposing the various components as they unfold. This will be seen by use of the terms RIP (Irving's story) and ABDUCTION (relating to the abduction phenomenon) before each segment.
The story opens with a description of the "Kaatskill" mountains, an offshoot of the Appalachian chain. The mood is quickly set by placing the reader in a location filled with "magical hues and shapes" amid the "fairy mountains." Residing in one tiny village is a man named Rip Van Winkle, "a good-natured fellow [and]... a kind neighbor." His main character flaw is described as an "insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labor." This may have been in part to his overbearing and nagging wife. Nevertheless, Rip found it impossible to keep his farm in order. His fences were in continual disrepair, his cows would wander out of the pasture, and weeds found a way to overcome his crops. In short, his farm was in the worst condition in the area. In his defense, Rip is always seen to be helpful to others in need, especially to the good wives of the village who regarded him with great favor. "The children ... would shout with joy whenever he approached ... not a dog would bark at him throughout the neighborhood." "He would never refuse to assist a neighbor even in the roughest toil, and was a foremost man at all frolics for husking Indian corn, or building stone-fences; the women of the village, too, used to employ him to run errands, and to do such little odd jobs ..." Certainly, any man assisting in building a stone fence should not be considered "lazy." Obviously, Rip's lack of enthusiasm stemmed from his abuse at home.
Abduction research is replete with a sense of "otherworldliness," referred to as a "Zone of Strangeness" by Dr. Thomas E. Bullard, an abduction research analyst. Abductees often enter a state where the laws of nature no longer seem to apply. The realm of the fairies has the same quality, as related in many of the tales surrounding these beings. Yet, Rip Van Winkle, himself, is a man who lives in the reality of his world. He is well liked throughout his village, recognized and respected by man, woman, child, as well as beast. He is hard working when it comes to lending a helping hand to a neighbor in need. On the home front, however, he is in a continual state of ridicule, his wife seeing him as worthless and lazy. Some abduction researchers may see this aspect of his life as a formation of an "encounter-prone personality" where an abused individual may be predisposed to an encounter with alien beings. Although the research in this area (as with most aspects of the abduction scenario) is difficult to label as definitive, some abductees have been found to suffer from a high degree of "childhood abuser" trauma. Rip Van Winkle definitely falls into the category of "abused" from the tongue-lashings of his wife, abuse which may or may not make him a "high risk" for an alien encounter.
The abuse at home grows worse as time goes on. Rip Van Winkle's "sole domestic adherent" is his dog, Wolf, who shares the insults of Dame Van Winkle with his master. Wolf is described as "courageous an animal as ever scoured the woods." Eventually, Rip is "reduced almost to despair," so to avoid any further vituperation, he heads for the mountains for a day of squirrel shooting, his gun in hand, his dog at his side. With the sheer joy of being alone with his canine companion and the sounds of nature -- not to mention the lack of his wife's voice to interrupt his peacefulness -- Rip finds that he has mused too long. Darkness would be upon him before he would be able to return home. He quickly begins his descent from the peaks when he hears "a voice from a distance, hallooing, Rip Van Winkle! Rip Van Winkle!'" At this point he looks around for the source of the voice, but sees nothing but a "crow winging its solitary flight across the mountain." Thinking he imagined the voice, the same cry is repeated. This time, Wolf reacts by bristling "up his back, and giving a low growl." Wolf skulks "to his master's side, looking fearfully down the glen."
Once the abuse at home reaches a point where it becomes unbearable, an individual often takes measures to either rid himself of the abuse or find a means of coping. Some shut down, closing their feelings off as much as possible. Others, unfortunately, may resort to murder or suicide. Fortunately, Rip Van Winkle decides to spend the day in one of his favorite pastimes, squirrel shooting. Inadvertently, he stays too long in the mountains and becomes stressed and "he heaved a heavy sigh," when he realizes he will invoke Dame Van Winkle's wrath in getting home after dark. [Relate this to the "encounter-prone personality" above.] He twice hears a voice calling his name. It is possible that the voice could have been "heard" in his head, a possible telepathic communication. This "voice," whether audible or telepathic, becomes a "Drawing Force" often found in the abduction experience. This drawing force lures the potential abductee to a UFO or alien being. Two items are worthy of note here:
At the first instance of the voice, a crow is seen flying across the mountain. This is significant because many alien encounters are prefaced by the witness seeing an animal of some sort: a deer, an owl, etc. Why this occurs is unknown and the subject of much conjecture. Some theorize that aliens may be "shape-shifters," showing themselves as something familiar to lessen the abhorrence of an encounter with an unfamiliar being. Others speculate that the "image" of a familiar object is mentally placed in the victim‘s mind. A variety of theories exist in this regard and may all be equally valid. Researchers have a difficult enough time proving abductions actually occur, without giving definitive reasons as to why animals may often be associated with them. We will see the reference to animals later on in the story after Rip has his encounter with the strange little men. After the second call, Rip‘s dog reacts. The reaction of an animal to a UFO event is significant because it lends some validity to the occurrence. An animal‘s reaction proves something is taking place in our physical realm. In Wolf‘s case, his reaction is one of fear. (Remember that in the story he is described as courageous.) He emits a low growl and his fur bristles up on his back. He finally skulks beside his master, perhaps using him as a shield to stand between him and whatever is nearby. This is not the normal reaction of a domestic canine to the presence of a stranger. Usually, once the "defense" mechanism is triggered, the dog would stand between the intruder and his master. Wolf‘s timid reaction is indicative of something that is out of the normal course of events.
"Rip now felt a vague apprehension stealing over him," and looking in the same direction as his dog sees a "strange figure slowly toiling up the rocks." The figure's back is bent over as he carries something quite heavy. Rip, being a helpful soul, thinks it might be a neighbor in need; however, as the stranger approaches nearer, Rip is surprised at the oddity of the stranger's appearance. He is equally surprised to see any human being in such a "lonely and unfrequented place." "He was a short square-built old fellow, with thick bushy hair, and a grizzled beard." He is dressed in what could only be described as "antique Dutch fashion - a cloth jerkin strapped around the waist - several pairs of breeches ... He bore on his shoulder a stout keg ... and made signs for Rip to approach and assist him with the load." Rip does assist with carrying the keg and together they continue to climb up the mountain. Only what Rip believes to be an occasional peal of thunder disturbs the scene.
Abductees are beset with the strangeness of their situation during the abduction experience. At the onset there is often a feeling of "vague apprehension" that something is about to take place. In many abduction cases, it is the little grey beings who actually bring the abductee to the craft, either by allurement or actual force. Rip Van Winkle is filled with apprehension even prior to seeing the little man approach. The small being is reminiscent of dwarves and other little forest-inhabiting creatures from stories of long ago. He also reminds us of the little Greys associated with modern day abductions. Notice that there is no verbal communication between the man and Rip. There seems to be some gesturing, but Rip understands perfectly what he has to do. This may reflect some telepathic communication, as well. The gesturing has an aspect of "sign language" used by the deaf. In the abduction scenario, there have been reports of the use of sign language by alien beings.
Eventually, the two came to "a hollow, like a small amphitheatre, surrounded by perpendicular precipices..." It is stated by Irving that Rip and his companion "labored on in silence ... there was something strange and incomprehensible about the unknown, that inspired and checked familiarity."
It is important to recall at this point that Rip Van Winkle has always been friendly to all of the neighboring folk in his area. It is not in accord with Rip's character to let himself remain unfamiliar with his companion. Yet, the story states that due to the "strange and incomprehensible," any type of familiarity was held at bay. Certainly, this is consistent with UFO abductions. Abductees are generally treated more as objects to study, rather than beings with whom the aliens wish to become familiar and establish a relationship. Notice, also, the end of their journey brings them to a sort of "hollow" with "perpendicular precipices," not unlike an "amphitheatre." Although this may seem insignificant at this stage of the story, it is important because after Rip wakes up from his sleep, this structure is no longer to be seen. The amphitheater-like, perpendicular structure is not unlike the inside of a space ship often described by abductees. Once inside a craft, an abductee often speaks of an examination room that is circular or curved (amphitheater-like). The walls are usually perpendicular.
Once inside the amphitheater, Rip notices other things which are a wonder to him. There are a group of odd looking little men playing "nine-pins." These men are dressed in similar garb to the man Rip helped in carrying the keg up the mountain. "There was one who seemed to be the commander ... What seemed particularly odd to Rip was, that though these folks were evidently amusing themselves, yet they maintained the gravest faces, the most mysterious silence, and were, withal, the most melancholy party of pleasure he had ever witnessed. Nothing interrupted the stillness of the scene but the noise of the balls, which, whenever they were rolled, echoed along the mountains like rumbling peals of thunder."
Once inside the circular enclosure (amphitheater), Rip notices other men similar to his companion. They are involved in playing what Rip believes to be nine-pins, a type of bowling game popular at the time. The sound of the rolling ball reminds him of the peals of thunder he heard while on his journey up the mountain. Notice too, that the men, although seeming to amuse themselves in Rip's estimation, have on the gravest faces. There is absolute silence, except for the noise of the rolling ball. Abductees often speak of the Greys as being very methodical in their approach to the abductee. They are described as "focused" on what they are doing, almost as if their task is of the utmost importance and nothing will deter them from accomplishing it. Perhaps the nine-pin game is something Rip cannot understand, so he identifies it with something familiar to him. Whatever the little men in the story are doing, they are intent on getting their job finished, so much so that they labor on in deafening silence. One of men is referred to as the "commander." Often abductees speak of a being, unlike the Greys, who comes on the scene and appears to have an air of authority. This being seems to be obviously in charge of the situation. The Greys give this authority figure the respect due a central figure.
Rip and the little man approached this remarkable scene with their keg. All activity ceased and they "stared at him with such fixed statue-like gaze, and such strange, uncouth, lacklustre countenances, that his heart turned within him, and his knees smote together." The contents of the keg were emptied into large flagons. His companion "made signs to him to wait upon the company. He obeyed with fear and trembling." All this was done in the most "profound silence." Soon the little men returned to their business at hand, and when they were not observing him, Rip ventured a taste from one of the flagons. One taste led to another, until "his eyes swam in his head, his head gradually declined, and he fell into a deep sleep."
Aliens have been known to have a deep, penetrating stare which can both comfort and instill fear into an abductee. As Rip approaches the busy scene, all activity stops, and each face stares at him with a "lackluster" countenance. There is no real expression here, no sheen or vitality. Aliens are often described as being emotionless, with no concern for their captive other than the work they have to finish. Whatever the work is, Rip is told to distribute some of the liquid to all present. He does so "with fear and trembling," not knowing what it is he is giving to the men. Notice that at this point in his encounter, Rip still has not heard any words spoken. There is gesturing, and one can almost assume some "mental" communication. In fact, throughout Rip's entire encounter with these strange entities, there is no oral communication at all. There are numerous allusions to possible mental telepathy and the use of sign language; however, actual verbal communication is non-existent. This silence does seem to cause Rip some degree of consternation. Eventually, Rip becomes bold enough to sample the beverage he had been serving, but it soon overpowers him and he falls asleep. Whether his captors wanted him to drink is not known in the story, but it looms as a definite possibility. Here ends the actual abduction experience. What follows is the aftermath.
"On waking, he [Rip] found himself on the green grass knoll whence he had first seen the old man of the glen." The day is sunny, the birds active in their singing and an "eagle was wheeling aloft." Rip believes he slept the entire night on the mountain, and even recalls the events before he fell asleep. His thoughts fearfully turn to his wife, who no doubt is ready to make his life more than a little unpleasant when he returns home. He searches for his rifle, but finds only "an old firelock lying by him, the barrel incrusted with rust, the lock falling off, and the stock worm-eaten." His dog is nowhere to be found, but Rip is sure he merely wandered off after a squirrel or some other interest. He whistles after the dog, even shouting his name, but there is no response.
There is a term used in abduction research called "Doorway Amnesia" which refers to the temporary lapse of memory an abductee has upon entering or exiting a spacecraft during the encounter. Rip seems to have no recollection of leaving the scene of his previous night's meeting, only of some of the events with which he was involved. He recalls the little men and the flagons of beverage. Again, as in the moment immediately preceding his encounter, an animal is also seen upon his awakening. He notices an eagle soaring overhead, and numerous little birds hopping about. He cannot accept what has happened to him, and is quite ready to blame the little men who he feels have played a trick on him.
Rip "is determined to revisit the scene of the last evening's gambol," and is ready to demand that the men return his rifle and dog. Upon rising up, he finds that he is stiff in the joints. He finds the area where he and the little man ascended with the keg, "but to his astonishment a mountain stream was now foaming down it ... At length he reached to where the ravine had opened through the cliffs to the amphitheater; but no traces of such opening remained. The rocks presented a high impenetrable wall..." He calls again after his faithful dog, but the only answer is "the cawing of a flock of idle crows ... who, secure in their elevation, seemed to look down and scoff at [him]."
Many abductees find themselves driven to understand what exactly happened to them, and Rip is no exception. He seeks out the location of the previous night. Although he finds the path he climbed with the little man, it has now become a stream. He follows the stream to where the amphitheater existed on the previous night; however, the amphitheater is no longer there, only high rocks which will not allow passage. Could the amphitheater have been the inside of a spacecraft, as previously explained ? Surely whatever was there before is no longer to be found.
As Rip approaches the village, he meets a number of people, but is surprised that he does not recognize any of them. Being of a gregarious nature, he finds this lack of recognition confusing, for he thought he knew everyone in the village. Even what the people wore seemed a bit odd to him. The villagers in return, looked at him as unusual, stroking their chins as he passed by. This chin stroking was done so often that soon Rip put his hand to his own chin only to discover that "his beard had grown a foot long!" The children, strangers all, "ran at his heels, hooting after him and pointing at his gray beard. The dogs too, not one of which he recognized for an old acquaintance, barked at him as he passed." The village is completely changed, possessing rows of unfamiliar houses and populated far beyond what Rip is able to recall. "His mind now misgave him; he began to doubt whether both he and the world around him were not bewitched." Although he is able to see the familiar Hudson River and recognizable peaks of his beloved Kaatskills, all else is perplexing to poor Rip Van Winkle.
Once a person experiences an abduction, life is never quite the same. Everyday life is somehow different. Often a feeling of "isolation" accompanies the aftermath. Fear of telling anyone about the event only increases the "aloneness," for to reveal something as bizarre as an alien encounter surely lies in the realm of insanity. Rip acutely feels this isolation. He is now alone in his once-familiar world. Notice the story tells that Rip's beard has grown to a foot long. This has an interesting aspect to it. Hair grows at the rate of approximately one-half inch (a little over a centimeter) a month. In a year's time it grows about six inches. If Rip slept for twenty years, as the story says, his beard should be nearly ten feet long, not one foot. Even given the fact that hair growth may slow down as the length increases, Rip's beard should be much longer than a foot after twenty years. This leaves us with a unique possibility. Wherever Rip was for those twenty years, he most likely was not in a place where time passed on a par with time on Earth. Earthly time shows a passage of twenty years, but according to Rip's beard, only two earthly years are accounted for. Where had he been?
Rip is puzzled by how much life in the village has changed. He finds himself perplexed when confronted with terms such as "Federal" or "Democrat." He is unable to understand many of the questions asked of him. Finally, when asked to name some of his old friends, he finds that many have either died or moved away. "Rip's heart died away at hearing of these sad changes in his home and friends, and finding himself thus alone in the world. Every answer puzzled him too, by treating of such enormous lapses of time, and of matters which he could not understand..." The only answer that Rip could make to the many inquiries is "I was myself last night, but I fell asleep on the mountain, and they've changed my gun, and everything's changed, and I'm changed, and I can't tell what's my name, or who I am!" Eventually those around him return "to the more important concerns of the election." Rip goes to live with his daughter." It was some time before he [Rip] could get into the regular track of gossip, or could be made to comprehend the strange events that had taken place during his torpor."
The feeling of isolation increases as the reality of the abduction experience begins to take hold. Everything that was once familiar may take on a totally different perspective. Abductees begin to see themselves as "changed" in their outlook on life, their philosophy, their desires, their needs and wants. They make a supreme effort to try to understand what has happened to them, and/or cope with the entire episode and its consequences. Although everyone acquainted with the abductee may be sympathetic, for them it is just a story and they quickly return to their everyday affairs. Not so with the one who has had the unusual experience. It may take a long time, as it did Rip, to return to the normal way of life.
"He used to tell his story to every stranger that arrived at Mr. Doolittle's hotel. He was observed at first to vary on some points every time he told it, which was doubtless owing to his having so recently awaked ... Some always pretended to doubt the reality of it, and insisted that Rip had been out of his head, and that this was one point on which he always remained flighty. The old Dutch inhabitants, however, almost universally gave it full credit."
Once abductees are able to come to grips with what has happened to them, they are more easily able to tell someone about the event. In fact, to do so may have some therapeutic value. As in Rip's case, there will always be those who doubt the sanity of the teller. On the other hand, there are those who give these stories their "full credit."
Rip Van Winkle is a story placed in a definite period of American history and thus has the value of presenting the reader with a description of the times in which it is told. However, beneath the surface lies a tale which relates to today's experience known as "alien abduction." It is important to place this folktale among the collection of literature which has a relationship to today's alien abduction phenomenon. The following statement from Diedrich Knickerbocker at the end of the Rip Van Winkle tale makes the story even more enigmatic:
"The story of Rip Van Winkle may seem incredible to many, but nevertheless I give it my full belief, for I know the vicinity of our Dutch settlements to have been very subject to marvellous [sic] events and appearances. Indeed, I have heard many stranger stories than this, in the villages along the Hudson; all of which were too well authenticated to admit of a doubt. I have even talked with Rip Van Winkle myself, who, when last I saw him, was a very venerable old man, and so perfectly rational and consistent on every other point that I think no conscientious person could refuse to take this into the bargain; nay, I have seen a certificate on the subject taken before a country justice and signed with a cross in the justice's own handwriting. The story, therefore, is beyond the possibility of doubt."
Although Irving's character of Diedrich Knickerbocker is fictitious, he may have been used by the author as a type of literary agent to express the strange tale of a man who had been "missing" for twenty years. Washington Irving would not have been able to explain the story in light of extraterrestrial contact. He therefore expressed it in the language of his time and in terms which he was able to understand.

CD-ROM Review - The Unexplained
Written by Christian Pfeiler
CD-ROM cover of the German version
"The Unexplained" is a Multimedia-CD-ROM from 1997 about various paranormal topics like
- UFOs (including abductions)
- Ghost appearences (including Poltergeist)
- Mysterious places (like Stonehenge)
- various PSI phenomena (like telepathy)
- Cryptozoology (like Bigfoot)
The material and articles on the CD-ROM were written and collected from various international experts in the research field of unexplained mysteries, including John Spencer (author of many books like "The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits" and "The Encyclopedia of the world's greatest unsolved mysteries" and president of BUFORA) and his wife Anne Spencer, so nearly all texts and articles are well researched and very interesting and obviously not the work of amateurs. Most Multimedia-CD-ROMs have always the problem, that they show generally many effects and animations or not very interesting short videos in small windows with bad resolution instead of real information, but "The Unexplained" is there different in a positive way.
The program use Apple QuickTime to display images (over 1000 illustrations) and short - but well done - 3D computer animations (instead of low-resolution AVI video as many other CD-ROMs) together with various sound effects and clear spoken text. You can either lean back and look that automatic media show - you can choose one of the various topics in advance - or you can interrupt the show with a simple mouse click and read then more detailled texts about certain topics which interests you (for example about certain abduction cases) and the media show continued then at the same place where you've stopped it. This function is in my opinion very useful. Furthermore, the CD-ROM contained an excellent dictionary which explains many terms.
An excellent 3D animation - bleeding walls in a haunted house
The only thing to criticise is, that some of the Apple Quicktime presentations about certain topics aren't very long (sometimes only 3 or 4 minutes) and for this reason important things and cases aren't mentioned or not explained detailled enough (but the entire length of all presentations is over 2 ½ hours.)
The hardware requirements are very low (in comparison to the good multimedia show): you need only a 486DX/33 (better 66 Mhz) with 8 MB RAM and with Windows 3.x (or Windows 95/98.) I can really recommend you this CD-ROM.
A Brief Account of the True Nature of the "UFO Entities"

Flying Saucer Review
PO Box 162
One of the more curious features of the followers of the various religions is that, being so dogmatically certain that in their own particular little faith they already possess the whole Truth about all things in Heaven and Earth, it almost never occurs to any of them to look elsewhere and find out what the followers of other religions may know or may have discovered.
This is certainly a pity, for study of all the great world religions - and notably Islam - would yield valuable clues as to the true nature of the so-called "UFO Phenomenon" and would rapidly eliminate much of the fatuous "Space-Age Mythology" that has been spawned in such profusion over the last three decades.
Islam knows, in fact, of the existence of three entirely separate and distinct species of intelligent beings in the Universe, and indeed can furnish surprisingly precise details regarding their natures and roles and activities.
Angels, Men, and Jinns
The first category is of course that of the Angels or Messengers (Greek: Angelos; Hebrew: Malach; Arabic: Malak). These are high beings created of light.
The third category are Men, with bodies created according to the Qur'an, of clay, or, in other words, this being poetic language, they have physical bodies assembled from the mineral and chemical elements of our Periodic Table -- the "planetary body", as Gurdjieff used to call it.
The second category, however, and the one with which we are here concerned, is the category of those beings (created before man was) who are referred to collectively in Arabic as Al-Jinn. Although there is some dispute about it among Arab grammarians, most of their lexicologists seem to hold that the word derives - as Arabic words almost invariably do - from a verb-root, namely janna, "to hide or to conceal" - indeed a very fitting derivation for the name of these creatures.
Whereas the bodies of Angels are of light and the bodies of men are of the gross elements of the Earth, the bodies of Al-Jinn consist of what is variously translated as "essential fire", or "essential flame", or "smokeless fire", or "smokeless flame", and it is specifically stated in the Qur'an (Surah XV, 26 and 27) that they were created before mankind was. (Some scholars have speculated that these might be the "Pre-Adamic men" whose existence is hinted at here and there in the "Holy Bible.")
There has been much debate among modern students of Arabic as to precisely what these terms "min nari al-samumi" and "min marijin min narin" can conceivably mean in modern parlance, and some scholars have concluded that, in using these terms, the Prophet Muhammad (the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) was here attempting to describe what Western occultists have tried to describe by such terms as ether, or maybe the so-called etheric or astral planes. (I have also seen it suggested that some sort of plasma is indicated.)
(Needless to say, such concepts as etheric plane and astral plane have no meaning for modern Science and, so far as I know, apart from Dirac, the physicists have abandoned their speculations regarding the existence of an ether.)
The Source of the Jinns
Wherever it is that the Jinns are thought of as being normally located, it seems highly likely that the source of many of them, at any rate, is not very distant from us, and some Muslim scholars who have become aware of the current Western research into the so called "UFO Phenomenon" and have reflected awhile upon it have concluded and I think correctly - that maybe the best way we can start to visualise these matters is by thinking of the Jinns as being very close indeed to us and yet at the same time somehow very far from us. In other words, on some other dimension, or in some other Space/Time framework, "right here", or maybe in a world of antimatter right here, or occupying as it were some other Universe that is here, behind Alice's mirror: "a mirror-universe on the other side of the Space-Time Continuum" as it has been neatly put by some investigators.
The Qur'an, however, is not clear on this, and admittedly it looks as though it is very possible that some of the Jinns could be fully physical and what we call extraterrestrials, while other species of them are of an altogether and finer sort of matter, corresponding to what various UFO investigators have tried to indicate by such terms as "ultraterrestrial" or "metaterrestrial".
In thinking about these ideas, we might bear in mind the theory of the Russian philosopher P. D. Ouspensky regarding the possible existence of other, more subtle, levels of matter on which the elements of the Periodic Table of our own chemical world are repeated - and, if I understand him aright, repeated more than once, on more than one level. The early writings of Dr. Meade Layne in the USA about the "Dense Etheric World" from which he maintained that the UFO entities and their craft originated should also be borne in mind. (His book "The Coming of the Guardians", was published in 1958, and may prove one day to have been very important indeed. ) Certain of the benevolent Jinns may well be our "Guardians".
That there is some close affinity, or some link of destiny between Jinns and Mankind seems certain, for although the vast majority of the Jinns are devils, shaytans, nevertheless we are assured in the Qur'an that some among their many species are "goodies" and are capable of salvation. For it is specifically stated that Muhammad was sent as a Messenger to both Mankind and the Jinns, so that, in the Final Days, some of the Jinns will enter into Paradise, while the rest of them will be cast down into Hell. Their revelation to IBLIS, the Top Devil (= "SATAN") is in general somewhat obscure. In the Qur'an Iblis is certainly described as a Jinn, but elsewhere in the Qur'an he is also described as an Angel. (Surely the explanation is that Iblis is that same high being, originally of Angelic status, who rebelled against God and is named in the Christian texts as "Lucifer")
Had we the space, much more might be said about the Jinns and their doings, but only a brief account of their main characteristics can here be given. Their principal features, as listed below, are as I have gathered them from all the Muslim written and traditional sources that I have been able to consult over the past 15 years. The reader can see for himself the parallels with the reported features of UFO entities and can draw his own conclusions. I hope I do not have to labour the point, space being precious.

The KRILL papers (Part 3)
written by O.H. Krill (Pseudonym)
Another cattle mutilation in the United States
(Remark from Chris: here is the third part of the so-called KRILL papers, concerning MJ-12. As I have said, there is no need to believe everything in this text, but I think there is maybe a true core behind the more or less weird story. Please make your own opinion about the claims.)
In STIGMATA No. 5 (Fall-Winter 1978) Tom Adams outlined the most prominent speculative explanations accounting for the mutilation/helicopter link, including the following:
- The helicopters are themselves UFOs, disguised to appear as terrestrial craft.
- The choppers originate from within the U.S. gov./military and are directly involved in conducting the actual mutilations.
- The helicopters are government/military and are not involved in the mutilations but are investigating them.
- The helicopters are government/military, and they know about the identity and motives of the mutilators and by their presence, they are trying to divert attention to the possibility of involvement by the military.
The answer, as far as Tom Adams is concerned, could be a combination of the above explanations. There also has been speculation that they are involved in biological experiments with chemical or biological warfare or the geobotanical pursuit of petroleum and mineral deposits. On one occasion, an armystandard-type scalpel was found at a mutilation site. Since the disks have been mostly involved with the mutilations, it is thought that this was a diversionary event.
These events, or the discussion of them, is just the precursor to the actual revelations of what is behind the mutilations: alien acquisition of biological materials for their own use. To discuss this in a logical and sequential manner, we must review what has been really happening right under our noses: direct interaction with extraterrestrial biological entities (EBE's). To discuss that, however, we must attempt to start at the beginning with what we now know to be true.
The Saga Begins
It seemingly all began thousands of years ago, but for the purposes of this discussion, let's start with some events that we all are familiar with. In 1947, two years after we set off the first nuclear explosion that our current civilization detonated, came the Mantell episode, where we had the first recorded incident of a military confrontation with extraterrestrials that resulted in the death of a military pilot. It is quite evident now that our government did not known quite how to handle the situation. In 1952, the nation's capital was overflown by a series of disks. It was this event which led to the involvement of United States security forces (CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI) to try to keep the situation under control until they could understand what was happening. During this period, the government established a working group, known as Majestic Twelve (MJ-12).
The original members were:Admiral Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, Dr. Vannevar Bush, Secretary James Forrestal, General Nathan P. Twining, General Hoyt S.Vandenburg, Dr. Detlev Bronk, Dr. Jerome Hunsaker, Mr. Sidney W.Souers, Mr. Gordon Gray, Dr. Donald Menzel, General Robert M.Montague, and Dr. Lloyd V. Berkner.
The MJ-12 group has been a continuously existing group since it was created, with new members replacing others that die. For example, when Secretary Forrestal was upset at seeing the United States sold out in World War II, he wound up being sent to a Naval hospital for emotional strain. Before relatives could get to him, he "jumped out a 16th story window." Most persons close to him consider his suicide contrived. When Forrestal died, he was replaced by General Walter B. Smith. In December of 1947, Project Sign was created to acquire as much information as possible about UFOs, their performance characteristics and their purposes. In order to preserve security, liaison between Project Sign and MJ-12 was limited to two individuals within the intelligence division of the Air Materiel Command whose role it was to pass along certain types of information through channels. Project Sign evolved into Project Grudge in December, 1948. Project Grudge had an over civilian counterpart named Project Bluebook, with which we are all familiar. Only "safe" reports were passed to Bluebook. In 1949, MJ-12 evolved an initial plan of contingency called MJ-1949-04P/78 that was to make allowance for public disclosure of some data should the necessity present itself. Majestic Twelve was originally organized by General George C.Marshall in July, 1947, to study the Roswell-Magdalena UFO crash recovery and debris. Admiral Hillenkoetter, director of the CIA from May 1, 1947, until September, 1950, decided to activate the "Robertson Panel," which was designed to monitor civilian UFO study groups that were appearing all over the country. He also joined NICAP in 1956 and was chosen as a member of its board ofdirectors. It was from this position that he was able to act as the MJ-12 "mole," along with his team of other covert experts.
They were able to steer NICAP in any direction they wanted to go.With the "Flying Saucer Program " under complete control of MJ-12 and with the physical evidence hidden away, General Marshall felt more at ease with this very bizarre situation. These men and their successors have most successfully kept most of the public fooled for 39 years, including much of the western world, by setting up false experts and throwing their influence behind them to make their plan work, with considerable success. Until now. Within six months of the Roswell crash on 2 July 1947 and the finding of another crashed UFO at San Augustine Flats near Magdalena, New Mexico, on 3 July 1947, a great deal of reorganization of agencies and shuffling of people took place. The main thrust behind the original "security lid," and the very reason for its construction, was the analysis and attempted duplication of the technologies of the disks. That activity is headed up by the following groups:
- The Research and Development Board (R&DB)
- Air Force Research and Development (AFRD)
- The Office of Naval Research (ONR)
- CIA Office of Scientific Intelligence (CIA-OSI)
- NSA Office Of Scientific Intelligence (NSA-OSI)
No single one of these groups was supposed to know the whole story. Each group was to know only the parts that MJ-12 allowed them to know. MJ-12 also operates through the various civilian intelligence and investigative groups. The CIA and the FBI are manipulated by MJ-12 to carry out their purposes. The NSA was created in the first place to protect the secret of the recovered flying disks, and eventually got complete control over all communications intelligence. This control allows the NSA to monitor any individual through mail, telephone, telexes, telegrams, and now through onlinecomputers, monitoring private and personal communications as they choose.

Website tip of the month
Written by Christian Pfeiler
The website tip of this month is the site "Weird Mysteries". You can find there many information and links to various sites concerning unsolved mysteries of our modern world like UFOs (as usual), the great pyramids or the famous "Shroud of Turin" (see my article in issue 6). The site is very well designed and sorted in sections like "Mysteries on Earth" or "Mysteries beyond and above". I can recommend you this site, if you search for information about unsolved mysteries.

UFO photo of the month
Written by Christian Pfeiler
At 2:00pm on June 21, 1977, a witness who declines identification snapped a color photograph of a shiny circular disc-shaped metallic flying object that had a high raised cupola on its top side. It was flying high above the trees, and above the lower scattered puffy white cloud level, but well below a higher cirrus layer of thin clouds. The brushed-silver disc had a smooth unbroken lower surface and a three-tiered dome. The lower part of the dome had a red-orange color, with a light yellow colored part above that which was topped by a reddish-gold knob at the uppermost level. No seams, joints, ports or projections of any kind marred the unbroken finish of the shiny craft.
In the following an interesting e-mail I've received recently from Carolyn Myers. She has a very interesting theory concerning abductions and she will show this theory in one of the next issues in an own article. This is unfortunately the only mail I have this month for the Mail Corner. Feel free to send me your comments and criticisms for the next issue.
I have read all of the UFO+PSI Research magazines found on the UFOINFO website, and I am very impressed. Please do not take this wrongly, but I had read several of your articles before seeing your picture and I was shocked by how young you appear. I was amazed that someone so obviously well versed, articulate and knowledgable could be so young. You are doing a fantastic job. I also had prepared a newsletter for several years and I know how difficult and time consuming it can be. Your articles show a great amount of insight and thought.
I have two questions for you. The first one may be elementary to you, but coming from this side of the planet it is not so obvious to me. The majority of information regarding UFO's, 'black operations', cover-up's and the like all seem to stem from the Unites States and/or the US government. Why is that? I am very interested in what is happening in other parts of the world and I am sure that other governments are involved as well. I hear some UFO sighting reports, but that is about all.
As far as disinformation is concerned, if for example the US had recovered an alien spacecraft and are back-engineering it, what better way to keep that technology hidden for national security reasons than to publicly and officially announce the very idea of alien visitation as rediculous? Any foreign military would be scoffed at for even attempting to look into whether we had advanced technology or not. The US could make the blanket statement that we are militarily the same as any other nation and it would be believed, except by (as you so aptly put it) the 'crazies'.
Anyway, my second question regards the abduction phenomenon. In your Issue 3 you mention the occurrance of sleep paralysis as possibly an explanation for many abduction reports when the abductees are taken from their beds at night. I have done quite a lot of research into this topic because I have experienced sleep paralysis for the past 20 years. My research originally was only on sleep paralysis, and only later when it was related to abductions did I realized how accurate this was. I never dream or hallucinate when I have it and from the first time I knew that "my mind was awake and my body was still asleep". I also never experienced fear, only frustration. According to obvious thought, this does not explain abduction when people are taken from their cars while driving, or missing time.
I recently got transfered in my job (for the government!!!) and commute 80 miles each way to work, and work 11 hours a day, 4 days a week. Obviously I am very tired in the mornings when I drive to work and it is on long, straight roads and freeways. There is very little to keep my attention. I have frequently found myself getting very sleepy and in that 'daze' state everyone gets into when driving long distances. You know, you drive home and can't remember much of the trip because it becomes so automatic. I recently read an article on sleep deprivation that asserted many people who have fallen asleep at the wheel have actually reported not feeling sleepy at all. My question is this - since sleep deprivation occurs in the majority of working Americans, is it possible that people can become "transfixed" without realizing it, and slip into a form of sleep similar to sleep paralysis or that "dazed" state? Without proper sleep, studies have shown that the REM sleep cycle still occurs despite the individual's waking status, and awake people hallucinate, seeing imagined people standing next to real ones.
Let's speculate that I was driving to work one morning in the dark and along the 20 mile, straight road before I ever get to the freeway. The road is flat and rural, with only cow pastures and fields, and there is nothing to keep my attention but the stars. I am tired even though the fact is masked by the cup of coffee I had earlier. I have driven this same, uneventful road so many times it is boring and I could do it with my eyes closed. I am prone to sleep paralysis anyway, and easily drift into that familiar "automatic driving daze". I don't drive off the road because I am technically still awake, but I nonetheless I am no longer fully aware of my surroundings. Perhaps some of the characteristics of my typical sleep paralysis hallucinations (were I prone to them) creep into my subconscious, but I don't really remember them because they are basically dreams. Eventually I drift back out of this state, not knowing I had ever entered it, perhaps I even had pulled over to the side of the road, who knows. I don't really think too much about it and continue on my journey. Perhaps I notice when I get to work, or perhaps I even look down at the clock and it's 20 minutes later than it should be! I don't remember anything too unusual, or perhaps I vaguely remember those dream-like faces. If it bothers me enough I may get hypnotized to remember those 20 minutes, and guess what? I remember what went through my mind when I was in that dream-like state, the alien faces that are so typical in bedroom abductions.
Who knows, it's just a theory. But as I am so fascinated with both of these subjects already, if you are interested I am willing to do more research and write a more clinical article on it for your magazine. Just let me know and I'll get started.
Please add me to your mailing list, I am very interested in your response to my letter as well as anything else you have to say on the UFO/PSI subject. I look forward to hearing from you. Also, yes, if you want to put any of this in your Mail Corner, feel free to.

Comment from Christian Pfeiler
(Translator of this text and editor of "UFO + PSI Research Magazine)
Some weeks ago, I was asked from an online-friend if I can translate a certain document concerning the truth about UFOs, aliens and our real history. He said that he had received this fascinating file from a friend from Sweden, whose name is Ole K. (no full name available) and who claimed that he had made an interview with a non-human reptilian being. He claimed furthermore that this document contains the absolute truth about UFOs and aliens (if someone would give me only 100 DM for every "absolute truth about UFOs" I've read in the last years, I would be a rich man <g>). I knew my online-contact as a strong believer in UFOs but also as an intelligent young man who knows many things about physics and sightings, so I was very surprised when I read the weird document called "Lacerta File I" the first time and I asked him if he really believe in this science-fiction-story.
He was absolutely sure and said, that Ole K. is a personal friend of him and that he would never lie. Concerning evidence, he told me that he have read the whole transcript and that he saw the drawings and the audio tapes Ole K. mentioned in his introduction. I suppose every other "normal" UFO researcher had deleted this file immediately, but I'm "crazy" enough to try to translate it <g>. I have warned my friend that my English is rather bad (as you know) but he was sure that I can do it and so I have tried to translate it somehow understandable (maybe a good exercise for me.) This means neither that I'm responsible for the content of this file not that I believe that it's true, this means only that I've done a translation job for a friend. I have tried to make it easier to read by the use of some brackets (the original German text - which was a translation from Swedish - was in a very confusing form) and I'm also not sure if I have always used the correct words, but I hope it is understandable.
My personal opinion (after translating this weird text for nearly one week) is, that the text is a really good science-fiction story but never the truth or reality. The answers and questions are always more or less logical, but I think the whole message is too unbelievable to be true (especially the scientific things) and in my opinion, the "being" tries too often to avoid the answering of too difficult questions because the author of the whole text was not able to know an answer. But my job was a translation job and not commenting the content of the file. I was asked if I can publish this file in the next issue of the magazine, but I think it's to long and also too weird to be part of our magazine, but as I was asked to send it to as many people as possible, I decided to send it as a normal RTF-File (compatible with most word processors) to you. If this stuff is too weird for you, please delete it. The things mentioned in the file are definetly not my opinion or my belief. Sorry for the wrong words and grammar.
Make your own opinion and let me know what you think.
The Lacerta File I
I certify that the following text is the absolute truth and no work of fiction. These are parts of a transcript of an interview I've made with a non-human and reptilian being in December 1999. This female being was already in contact with a friend of mine (whose name is given only with the abbreviation E.F. in the text) since some months. Let me declare, that I was all my life a sceptic about UFOs, aliens and other weird things and I thought that E.F. tells me just dreams or fictionous stories when he talked with me about his first contacts with the non-human being "Lacerta". I was still a sceptic when I met this being on December 16 last year in that small warm room in the remote house of my friend near to a town in the south of Sweden, despite the fact that I saw now with my own eyes that she was not human. She has told and shown me so many unbelievable things during that meeting that I can't deny the reality and the truth of her words any longer. This is not another of that wrong UFO papers which claim to tell the truth but tell in fact just fiction, I'm convinced that this transcript contains the only truth and therefore you should read it.
I had talked with her for over 3 hours, so the following transcript shows you only shortened parts of the interview, because she asked me after the interview not to publish everything she had told me already now. The order of the questions in this transcript is not always the same order in which I had asked them, so it may seem sometimes a little bit confusing to you. It was not easy to delete all the important parts she had asked me to delete from the transcript, so I apologise for the maybe unusual order. I'm in the possession of the entire transcript of the interview (49 pages with some of my drawings of her body and her equipment) and also of some tapes on which I have the full interview, but I will not reveal this before I have permission from her. I will send this shortened form of the still fascinating document to four of my reliable friends to Finland, Norway, Germany and France and I hope they will translate it into their own languages and into other languages and I hope as many people as possible will be able to read and to understand the transcript. If you receive it, please send it to all your friends via e-mail or make print-outs and copy them.
I certify furthermore, that various "paranormal" abilities of her species like telepathy and telekinesis (including the moving and dancing of my pencil on the table without touching and the flying of an apple around 40 centimetres over her hands) were shown to me during the 3 hours and 6 minutes of the meeting and I'm absolutely sure that these abilities were no tricks. The following is certainly difficult to understand and to believe for someone who haven't experienced it, but I was really in contact with her mind and I'm now completely sure that everything she said during the interview is the absolute truth about our world.
Unfortunately, if I read the entire transcript and (much more) this very shortened form by myself I have the strong impression, that everything I've written sounds too unbelievable to be true, that everything sounds more like a bad science fiction story from TV or cinema and I have doubts that anyone will believe my experiences. But they are true, if you believe it or not. I can't expect from you that you believe my simple words without evidence, but I can't give you that evidence. Please read the transcript and think about it and you will maybe see the truth in this words.
There will be a new meeting between me and her (again in the same house in Sweden) on April 23 2000 and she promised me to give me maybe some evidence for her existence. In the meantime I collect questions which I will ask her then. Maybe she gives me permission to reveal more of the missing parts in that transcript and about the coming war.
Believe it or not, this makes no real difference (but I hope you will believe.)

Transcript of Interview (shortened form)
Date: December 16 1999
Question: First of all, who are you and what are you? Are you an extraterrestrial species or can your origin be found on this planet?
Answer: As you could see with your own eyes, I'm not a human being like you and to be honest I'm no real mammal (despite my partly mammal-like body features, which are a result of evolution.) I'm a female reptile being, belonging to a very old reptilian race. We are the native terrans and we live on that planet since millions of years. We are mentioned in your religious writings like your Christian Bible and many of the ancient human tribes were aware of our presence and worshipped us as gods, for example the Egyptians and the Inca and many other old tribes. Your Christian religion have misunderstood our role in your creation, so we are mentioned as "evil serpent" in your writings. This is wrong. Your race was genetically engineered by aliens and we were just the more or less passive visitors of this accelerated evolution process. You must know (some of your scientists have already supposed this) that your species had evolved in a naturally completely impossible speed within just 2 - 3 millions of years. This is absolutely impossible, because evolution is a much slower process if it's natural but you have not understand this. Your creation was artificial and done by genetic engineering, but not by us but by an alien species. If you ask me, if I'm an extraterrestrial, I must answer no. We are native terrans. We had and have some colonies in the solar system, but we originate on this planet. It's in fact our planet and not yours - it was never yours.
Question: Can you tell me your name?
Answer: This is difficult, because your human tongue is not able to pronounce it correctly (and a mispronounciation of our names is very offensive for some of my kind.) Our language is very different from yours, but my name is - I will try to say it smoother by use of your human letters - something like "Sssshiaassshakkkasskkhhhshhh" with a very very strong pronounciation of the "sh" and "k" sounds. We have no forenames like you but only a single but unique name which is divided and charakterised by the way of speaking and which is given not to children (who have an own children-name) but only in a special procedure in the adolescent age at the time of either religious or scientific "enlightenment" or awareness (as you would call it.) I would appreciate it if you don't try to say my real name with your human tongue. Please call me "Lacerta", this is the name I generally use when I'm among humans and talk with them.
Question: How old are you?
Answer: We measure the time not like you in astronomical years and in the revolve of the earth around sun, because we usually live beneath the surface of the planet. Our time measurement depends on periodically returning cycles in the earth magnetic field and according to this (and said with your numbers) I'm today - let me calculate - 57,653 cycles old. I have reached my adult phase and my awareness 16,337 cycles ago (this is a very important date for us.) According to your human time scale I'm around 28 yearsold.
Question: What is your task? Do you have a "job" like us?
Answer: To say it with your words: I'm a curios student of the social behaviour of your species. That's why I'm here and talk to you, that's why I have revealed my real nature to E.F. and now to you and that's why I give you all that secret information and why I will try to answer all the questions on your many sheets of paper honestly. I will see how you react, how others of your kind react. There are so many crazies and liars of your kind on this planet who claim to know the truth about us, about UFOs, about aliens and so on and some of you believe their lies. I'm interested to see how your species will react if you make the truth (which I will tell you now) public. I'm quite sure everyone of you will refuse to believe my words, but I hope I'm wrong, because you need to understand if you want to survive the coming years.
Question: I've read your full statement (which you have given to E.F.) about this, but can you give me now just a short answer: are UFOs real flying objects piloted by extraterrestrials or do they belong to your species?
Answer: Some observed UFOs - as you call them - belong to us, but most not. Most of the "mysterious" flying objects in the sky are not technological devices but mainly misinterpretations of natural phenomena your scientists have not understand (like spontanous plasma flares in the high atmosphere.) Nevertheless, some UFOs are real craft belonging either to your own species (especially to your military) or to other alien species or at last to us (but a minority of sighted craft belongs really to us, because we are generally very careful with our movements in the atmosphere and we have special ways to hide our ships.) If you read a report about a sighting of a metalish bright-gray cigar-shaped cylindrical object with a lenght of - there are different types - let me say between 20 and 260 of your metres and if this object had made a very deep humming sound and if there were 5 bright red lights on the metalish surface of the cigar (one at the top, one in the middle, two at the end) then it's likely that someone of you have seen one of our ships and this means that it was either partly defect or that someone of us was not careful enough. We have also a very small fleet of disc-shaped craft, but such UFOs belong usually to an alien species. Triangular UFOs belong generally to your own military but they use foreign technology to build them. If you really want to try to see one of our craft, you should have a look at the skies over the Arctic, the Antarctic and over Inner Asia (especially over the mountains there.)
Question: Have you a special symbol or something like that with which we can identify your kind?
Answer: We have two major symbols representing our species. One (the more ancient) symbol is a blue serpent with four white wings on a black background (the colours have religious meanings for us.) This symbol was used from certain parts of my society, but it is today very seldom - you humans have copied it very often in your old writings. The other symbol is a mystic being you would call a "Dragon" in the shape of a circle with seven white stars in the middle. This symbol is much more common today. If you see one of that symbols on a cylindrical craft I've described in my previous answer or on some underground installation, this thing or place belongs definetly to us (and I would advise you to go away from there as soon as possible.)
Question: The seven stars in the second symbol you've mentioned - do they mean the Pleiades?
Answer: Pleiades? No. Actually, the seven stars are planets and moons and they are a symbol for our former seven colonies in the solar system. The stars are shown in front of a blue background and the dragon-circle means the shape of Earth. The seven white stars mean Moon, Mars, Venus and 4 moons of Jupiter and Saturn, we had colonized in the past. Two colonies are no longer in use and abandoned, so 5 stars would be more correct.
Question: As you have not allowed me to make photos - what would be very useful to prove your real existence and the truth of this story - can you describe yourself detailled?
Answer: I know that it would be helpful to prove the authenticity of this interview if you can make some photos from me. Otherwise, you humans are very sceptic (that's good for us and for the real alien species acting secretly on this planet) so even if you had such photos, many of your kind would say that they are fraud, that I'm just a masked human woman or something like that (that would be very offensive for me.) You must understand, that I can't give you permission to make photos of me or of my equipment. This have various reasons, which I want not to discuss with you further, but one of the reasons is the keeping up of the secrecy of our existence, another reason is more religious. Nevertheless, you have permission to make drawings of my look and of my equipment I can show you later. I can also try to describe myself, but I doubt that others of your kind will be able to imagine my real look just from simple words, because the automatic denial of the existence of reptilian species and generally of intelligent species other then your own is part of the programming of your mind. Well, I will try.
Imagine the body of a normal human woman and you have at first a good imagination of my body. Like you, I have a head, two arms, two hands, two legs and two feet and the proportions of my body are like yours. As I'm female I have also two breasts (despite our reptile origin, we have started to give milk to our babies during the evolution process - this happened around 30 million years ago - because this is the best thing to keep the young alive. Evolution had done this for your species already in the dinosaur age and - a little bit later - also for ours. That means not that we are now real mammals) but the breasts of us are not as large as those of human woman and the size of them is generally equal for every female of my kind. The external reproduction organs are for both sexes smaller then those of humans, but they are visible and they have the same function as yours (another gift of evolution to our species.)
My skin is mainly of a green-beige colour - more pale green - and we have some patterns of brown irregular dots (each dot of the size of 1 - 2 centimetres) on our skin and in our face (the patterns are different for both sexes but females have more, especially in the lower body and in the face.) You can see them in my case as two lines over the eyebrows crossing my forehead, at my cheek and at my chin. My eyes are a little bit larger then human eyes (for this reason, we can see better in the darkness) and usually dominated from the large black pupils, which are surrounded from a small bright-green iris (males have a dark-green iris). The pupil is slit and can change its size from a small black line to a wide-open egg-shaped oval, because our retina is very light sensitive and the pupil must compare this. We have external round ears but they are smaller and not so curved as yours, but we can hear better because our ears are more sensitive for sonic (we can also hear a wider range of sonic). There's a muscle or "lid" over the ears which can completely close them (for example under water). Our nose is more pointed and there is a V-shaped curving between the nostrils, which enabled the ancestors to "see" temperature. We have lost most of this ability, but we can still feel temperature much better with this "organ". Our lips are shaped like yours (those of females a little bit larger then those of males) but of a pale brown colour and our theet are very white and strong and a little bit longer and sharper then your soft mammal teeth. We have no different hair colours like you (but there is a traditon to colour the hairs in different ages) and the original colour is - like mine - a greenish brown. Our hairs are thicker and stronger then yours and they grow very slow. In additon, the head is the only part of our body where we have hairs.
Our body, arms and legs are similar in shape and size to yours, but the color is different (green-beige, like the face) and there are scale-like structures on the upper legs (over the knee) and upper arms (over the elbow). Our five fingers are a little bit longer and thinner then human fingers and our skin on the palm is plain, so we have no lines like you but again a combination of a scale-like skin structure and of the brown dots (both sexes have the dots on the palm) and we have no fingerprints like you. If you touch my skin, you will feel that it is smoother then your hairy skin. There are small sharp horns on the upside of both middle fingers. The fingernails are grey and generally longer then yours. You see that my nails are not so long and round at the top. This is because I'm female. Males have sharp pointed nails with a lenght of sometimes 5 or 6 of your centimetres. The following feature is very different from your body and part of our reptilian origin: if you touch the backside of my upper body you will feel a hard bony line through my clothing. This is not my spine but a very difficult shaped external plate-strucure of skin and tissue following exactly our spine from the head to the hip. There is an extremly high number of nerves and large blood vessels in this structure and in the plates (which are around two or three centimetres long and very touch sensitive - this is the reason why we have always problems to sit in chairs with a back like this chair.) The main task of these small plates (beside a role in our sexuality) is simply the regulation of our body temperature and if we sit in natural or artificial sunlight, these plates become more bloodfilled and the vessels become wider and the sun is able to heat up our reptilioid blood (which circulates through the body and through the plates) for many degrees and that gives us a great pleasure.
What else is different from your kind? Oh, we have no navel, because we were born in a different way to your mammal birth. The other exterior differences from your kind are minor and I think I must not mention all now, because most of them are not visible if we wear clothing. I hope the description of my body was detailled enough. I would advice you to make some drawings.
Question: What kind of clothing do you generally wear. I suppose this is not the way you dress normally?
Answer: No, I wear this human every-day-clothing only when I'm among humans. To be honest, it's not very comfortable for me to wear such tight things and it is always a very unusual feeling. If we are in our own home (this means in our subterranean home) or in our large artificial sun areas and if we are together with others near to our own name, we are usually naked. Is this shocking for you? When we are in the public and together with many others of my species we wear very wide and soft clothing made of thin, light stuff. I have told you that many parts of our bodies are very touch sensitive, mostly the small backplates so we can't feel comfortable in tight clothing because it can hurt us. Man and woman wear often the same kind of clothing, but the colours are different for the sexes.
Question: You've said "others near to your own name". Do you mean your familiy?
Answer: No, not really. You would call it "family" but with this word you mean only those of your kind which belong genetically together like father or mother and child. As I have said earlier we have a very difficult and unique name. Part of the pronounciation of that name is absolute unique and there is no other being with the same name, but part of this name (the middle part) is pronounced in a way that told the others to which "family" (I must use the word, because you haven't the right one in your vocabulary) you belong. This means not that all in that group are genetically related to you, because this groups are usually very large and contain between 40 and 70 of us. This group includes generally your genetic relations - except one of them had decided to left this group - and your connection with father and mother is often the strongest. It would be too difficult for me to explain you now our very old social system which is very complex and we would need many hours only for the primary things. Maybe we can meet another time and I can give you detailled descriptions of all these things.
Question: Have you a tail like normal reptiles?
Answer: Do you see one? No, we have no visible tail. If you look at our skeleton, there is only a small rounded bone at the end of our spine behind the pelvis. This is a useless rudiment of the tail of our ancestors, but it is not visible from the outside. Oh, our embryos have tails during the first months of development, but these tails disappear before they were born. A tail makes only sense for a primitive species which tries to walk on two legs and must held the balance with the tail, but our skeleton had changed during evolution and our spine is nearly in the same shape as yours, so we need no tail to stay on two feets.
Question: You said that you were born in a different way to us. Do you lay eggs?
Answer: Yes, but not like your birds or primitive reptiles. Actually, the embryo grows in a protein liquid inside the mothers womb, but there is also an egg-shaped but very thin chalk hull around it, that fills the whole womb. The embryo inside this hull is completely autark from the mothers body and it has every substance it needs to develop inside this chalk hull. There is also a cord like your navel cord which is connected to a point hidden behind the backplates. When the baby is going to be born, the whole egg is pressed through the vagina covered in a slimy protein substance and the baby came out of this soft egg after some minutes. These two horns on our middle fingers were instinctively used from babies to break through the chalk hull to take their first breath. Our young are not so large as your babies when they were born, they are between 30 and 35 of your centimetres tall, the egg is around 40 centimetres tall (this is because our vagina is smaller then a human one) but we grow to a normal size of 1,60 to 1,80 metres.
Question: What about your body temperature? You've said that you enjoy to lay in the sun. What effect have this to your organism?
Answer: We are no mammals and as reptiles our body temperature depends on the temperatur of our surrounding. If you touch my hand you will maybe feel that it is colder then yours, because our normal body temperature is around 30 to 33 degree celsius. If we sit in the sun (especially naked and with our row of small backplates in the sun) our body temperature can rise for 8 or 9 degrees within minutes. This rise causes a production of many enzymes and hormones in our body, our heart and brain and every organ becomes more active and we feel then very very good. You humans only enjoy to be in the sun but for us it is the greatest pleasure you can imagine (maybe like your sexual excitement.) We also enjoy to swim in very warm water or other liquids to rise our body temperature. If we are for some hours in the shadow, our temperature goes back to 30 to 33 degrees. This can cause no harm to us, but we feel much better in the sun. We have artificial sun-rooms in the underground but this is not the same for us like the real sun.
Question: What do you eat?
Answer: Generally various things like you: flesh, fruit, vegetables, special kinds of fungus (from subterranean farms) and other things. We can also eat and disgest some substances which are poisonous for you. The main difference between you and us is, that we must eat flesh, because our body needs the proteins. We can't live completely vegetarian like your kind because our disgestion would stop working and we would die after some weeks or maybe months without flesh. Many of us eat raw flesh or other things which would be disgusting for you. Personally, I prefer cooked flesh and surface fruits like apples or oranges.
Question: Can you tell me something about the natural history and evolution of your species? How old is your species? Have you evolved from primitive reptiles as mankind have evolved from apes?
Answer: Oh, this is a very long and complex story and it sounds certainly unbelievable to you, but it's the truth. I will try to explain it in short. Around 65 million years ago, many of our unadvanced ancestors from the dinosaur race died in a great global cataclysm. The reason for this destruction was not a natural disaster - an asteroid impact as your scientists believe falsely - but a war between two enemy alien groups that took mainly place in the orbit and high atmosphere of your planet. According to our limited knowledge about the early days this global war was the first alien war on planet earth but it was definetly not the last (and a future war is coming soon, while a "cold war" - as you call it - between alien groups is ongoing since the last 73 years on your planet.) The opponents in this 65 million year old war were two advanced alien species, whose both names are again not pronouncable for your tongues. I'm able to say them but it would hurt your ear if I tell you the names in their orginal way. One race was humanoid like your species (but much older) and was from this universe, from a solar system in the star constellation you call "Procyon" today in your maps. The other species - abouth which we know not so much - was a reptilian species, but they have nothing to do with our own species, because we have evolved from local saurians without exterior influence (except the sucessful manipulation of our own genes by us. More about that later.) The advanced reptilian species came not from this universe but from a - well, how should I explain it to you. Your scientists have not really understand the true nature of the universe, because your illogical mind is not able to see the easiest things and relies on wrong mathematics and numbers. This is part of the genetic programming of your kind to which I will come later. Let me say, that you are nearly as far away from the understanding of the universe as you were 500 years ago.
To use a term you will maybe understand: the other species came not from this universe but from another "bubble" in the foam of the omniverse. You would call it maybe another dimension, but this is not the right word to describe it correctly (by the way, the term dimension is generally wrong in the way you understand it.) The fact you should remember is, that advanced species are able to "walk" between bubbles by use of - as you would call it - quantum technology and sometimes in special ways only by use of their mind (my own species had also advanced mental abilities in comparison to your species, but we are not able to do the matterstring/bubble changing without technology, but other species active on this planet are able and this looks to you like magic as it had to your ancestors.)
Back to our own history: the first species (the humanoids) had reached Earth around 150 years before the reptilians and they built some colonies on the former continents. There was a large colony on the continent you call "Antarctica" today and another one in the continent you call "Asia" today. These people lived together with animal-like saurians on the planet without problems. When the advanced reptilan species arrived in this system, the humanoid colonists from "Procyon" tried to communicate peacefully, but they were not sucessful and a global war started within months. You must understand that both species were interested in this young planet not for his biology and undeveloped species, but for only one reason: raw material, especially copper. To understand this reason, you must know that copper is a very important material for some advanced species (even today) because it is - together with some unstable materials - able to produce new stable elements if you induce a high electromagnetic field in the right angle with a high nuclear radiation field to produce an over-crossing of fluctuating fields. The fusion of copper with other elements in such a magnetic/radiaton field-chamber can produce a force field of special nature that is very useful for various technological tasks (but the base for this is an extremly complex formula you are not able to discover because of the restrictions of your simple mind.) Both species wanted to have the copper of Planet Earth and for this reason, they fought a not very long war in space and orbit. The humanoid species seemed to be sucessful during the first time, but in a last battle the reptilians decided to use a mighty experimental weapon - a special kind of fusion bomb which should destroy the life forms on the planet but should not harm the valuable raw materials and the copper. The bomb was fired from space and detonated at a point of your planet you call "Middle America" today. As it detonated in the ocean, it produced an unpredictable fusion with hydrogen and the effect was much stronger then the reptilians had expected. A deadly radiaton, an over-production of fusion-oxygen, a fall-out of different elements and a "nuclear winter" for nearly 200 years were the result. Most of the humanoids were killed and the reptilians lost their interest on the planet after some years for (even for us) unknown reasons - maybe because of the radiation. Planet Earth was on its own again and the animals on the surface died. By the way, one result of the fusionbomb was the fall-out of different elements and materials created in the burning process and one of that materials was Iridium. Your human scientists today see the Iridium concentration in the ground as an evidence for an asteroid impact that killed the dinosaurs. That is not true, but how should you know that?
Well, most of the dinosaurs died (not all in the detonation but in the bad things which came after the war, especially in the nuclear winter and in the fall-out.) Nearly all dinosaurs and reptilians were dead within the next 20 years. Some of them - especially those in the oceans - were able to survive for the next 200 to 300 years even in this changed world, but these species also died, because the climate had changed. The nuclear winter ended after 200 years, but it was colder on earth then before. Despite the cataclysm, some species were able to suvive: fish (like the sharks), birds, little creepy mammals (your ancestors), various reptiles like crocodils...and there was a special kind of small but advanced dinosaurs which had developed together with the last large animal-reptilians like the species you call Tyrannosaurus.
This new reptile was walking on two legs and looked at little bit like your reconstruction of an Iguanodon (it originated in this family) but it was smaller (around 1,50 metres tall) with some humanoid features, a changed bone structure, a larger skull and brain, a hand with a thumb which was able to grab things, a different organism and disgestion, advanced eyes in the middle of the head like your eyes and...most important...with a new and better brain structure. This was our direct ancestor. There are theories that the radiation from the bomb took part in the mutations of the organism of this new breed, but this is not proven. Nevertheless, this little humanoid-like dinosaur evolved during the following 30 million years (as I have said earlier, a species need generally more time to evolve then you think, if the evolution is not artifically induced like in your case) from an animal to a more or less thinking being. These beings were intelligent enough not to die in the next millions of years, because they learned to change their behaviour, they lived in caves instead in the cold nature and they learned to use stones and branches as first tools and the use of fire as help to warm them - especially to warm their blood which is very important for our kind to survive. During the next 20 million years this species was divided by nature into 27 sub-species (unfortunately, former reptilian species were prone to divide themselves in a more or less unlogical way into sub-species during the evolution process. You can clearly see this in the unnecessary high number of animal-dinosaur species in earlier times) and there were many (mainly primitive) wars between this sub-species for dominance.
Well, nature was not very friendly to us and as far a we know from the 27 sub-species 24 were extincted in primitive wars and in evolution, because their organism and mind was not developed enough to survive and (as main reason) they were not able to change their blood temperature in the right way if the climate changed. 50 million years after the war and after the end of Dinosaurs, only three (now also technological) advanced reptilian species were remaining on this planet together with all the other lower animals. Through natural and artificial crossbreedings this three species were united to one reptilian species and through the invention of genetic manipulations, we were able to "eliminate" the dividing-prone genes in our genetic structure. According to our history and belief, this was the time when our final reptilian race - as you see me today - was created by use of genetic engineering. This was around 10 million years ago and our evolution nearly stopped at this point (well, actually there were some minor changes in our look toward a more humaniod and mammal-like appearance during the coming ages, but we have not divided again into sub-species). You see, we are a very old race in comparison to your kind, which was jumping around as small monkey-like animals in the trees at this time while we invented technology, colonized other planets of this system, built large cities on this planet (which disappeared without a trace in the ages) and engineered our own genes while your genes where still those of animals.
10 million years ago the small simians started to grow and they came down from the trees to the ground (again because of the change of the climate - especially on the so-called African continent.) But they evolved very slow as it is normal for a mammal and if nothing extraordinary had happened to your kind, we wouldn't be able to sit here and talk because I would sit in my comfortable modern house and you would sit in your cave clothed with fur and trying to discover the secrets of fire - or you would maybe sit in one of our zoos. But the things had developed differently and you believe now you are the "crown of creation" and you can sit in the modern house and we must hide and live beneath the earth and in remote areas. Around 1,5 million years ago, another alien species arrived at Earth (it was surprisingly the first species since over 60 million years. This would be more surprising for you if you would know how many different species are today here.) The interest of this humanoid species - you call them "Ilojiim" today - was not the raw material and the copper, it were to our astonishment the unadvanced ape-humanoids. Despite of our presence on this planet, the aliens decided to "help" the apes to evolve a little bit faster, to serve them in the future as some kind of slave-race in coming wars. The fate of your spezies was not really important for us, but we didn't liked the presence of the "Ilojiim" on our planet and they didn't liked our presence on their new "galactic zoo" planet and so your sixth and seventh creation was the reason for a war between us and them. You can read about that war for example partly in the book you call "Bible" in a very strange way of description. The real truth is a very long and difficult story. Should I continue?
Question: No, not now. I've made some notes about your history and now I have some questions.
Answer: Please ask.
Question: First of all, you handle with a very large time scale. You claim that your primitive ancestors lived together with the dinosaurs, survived the - as you called it - artificial cataclysm and evolved then over 40 million years and your evolution was completed 10 million years ago. This sounds very unbelievable to me. Can you say something to this?
Answer: I understand that this must sound absolutely unbelievable to you, because you are a young and genetically engineered species. Your historical horizon ends at a scale of just some thousands of years and you think this is right. But it isn't. This is impossible. Your programmed mind is obviously not able to handle with such large time scales. Our evolution time may seem incredible long to you, but this is in fact the original way of nature. Remember, your early mammal ancestors developed together with dinosaurs and they survived the bomb like us. They evolved slowly during the next millions of years and they divided into various species and shapes, some of them larger, some of them smaller. This is evolution of the body. But what about their mind and intelligence? They were simple animals. The mammals evolved since - let us say - 150 millions of years, but only in the last 2 - 3 millions of years they were able to became intelligent and thinking. And within this small period beings like you were created. From nature? 148 millions of years time for the evolution of animal-like mammals, 2 millions of years time for the development of (more or less) intelligent beings like you? Ask yourself: Do you really think this accelerated evolution is natural? Then your species is more ignorant then I've thought. We have not evolved wrong but you.
Question: I understand. But I have another question. You've mentioned many facts about the ancient war between the aliens 65 million years ago. This happened very long before your kind became really intelligent (as far as I have understood you). Why do you know so many things about that "first war" and about the evolution of your species?
Answer: This is a good question (much better then the previous) and I have not explained it properly to you. Our knowledge about the first war comes completely from an ancient artefact, which was found around 16,000 years ago from our archeologists on the continent you call North America today. They found there a round plate with a diameter of approximately 47 of your centimetres. The plate was made of an even for us unknown magnetic material and inside the plate there was another smaller crystal plate which contained an enormous amount of information coded in the molecular structure of the crystal. This "memory plate" was manufactured from the last bomb survivers of human race from "Procyon" already 65 million years ago but it was completely intact when we found it. Our scientists were able to encode the messages and data and so we heard the first time about the events which took place in the distant past and which led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. The plate contained detailled descriptions of both species (but more about the humanoids) and about the events and weapons, including the fusion bomb. It contained also a description of the animals and saurians on earth, including our pre-intelligent ancestor species. The rest of our knowledge about our evolution comes from skeletons and from the back-reading and de/encoding of our DNA. You see, we know the real truth about our roots since 16,000 years. Before that time, there was a more religious idea of our creation.
Question: What have happened with the both alien species?
Answer: We don't know exactly. The surviving humanoids on earth obviously died in the years after the bomb and others of their kind and the reptilians never came back to Earth (as far as we know). Concerning the reptilian aliens, there is a possibility that it was physically impossible for them to return, because the matter between bubbles is sometimes in rapid movement. The current theory is, that both species had ceased to exist during the millions of years.
Question: You've mentioned skeletons of your kind. How can it be, that human scientists haven't found any trace of you and your ancestors if you really live for such a long time on this planet? We have found many skeletons of primitive dinosaurs, but none of an advanced reptilian being with a larger skull and brain and a hand with a thumb as you have described it before.
Answer: Yes, you have. But your "great" scientists were not able to reconstruct the skeletons complety, because they wanted to reconstruct reptilian animals, not intelligent beings. You would laugh if you would know how many of the (especially small) saurian skeletons in your museums are totally wrong constructions of never-existing beings, because you used many bones which didn't really belong together and sometimes you made artificial bones if something was missing you needed to construct an "animal" saurian. Many of your scientists are aware of this problem, but they don't make it public, because they can't explain it and they claim, that the right bones were just missing and their reconstruction is right. Many bones of us were used for Iguanodon reconstructions, for example the hands with the visible thumb (look at an Iguanodon in a museum and you will see that I'm right.) A scientist in the country you call United States had build a nearly correct skeleton of our kind some years ago, but the local government (which is partly aware of our existence) confiscated the reconstruction. As we live today (and since thousands of years) nearly completely beneath the earth, you will not find any cadavers or skeletons of us.
Question: You speak sometimes about underground cities and artificial sunlight. Do you mean something like a "hollow Earth" with this. Is there a second sun inside our planet?
Answer: No, Earth is not really completely hollow and there is no second sun inside. This story is ridicolous and physically not possible (even your species should be intelligent enough not to believe this.) Do you know how much mass a sun must have to produce energy and light for a longer time by fusion? Do you really think that there could be a small active sun inside the planet? When I talk about our subterranean home, I talk about large cave systems. The caves you have discovered near to the surface are tiny in comparison to real caves and huge caverns deeper in the earth (in a depth of 2,000 to 8,000 of your metres, but connected with many hidden tunnels to the surface or to surface-near caves) and we live in large and advanced cities and colonies inside such caves. Major sites of us are beyond the Arctic, the Antarctic, Inner Asia, North America and Australia. If I talk about artificial sunlight in our cities I don't mean a real sun but various technological sources of light (including gravitational sources) which illuminates the caverns and tunnels. There are special cave areas and tunnels with a strong UV light in every city and we use that places to heat our blood. Furthermore, we have also some surface sunplaces in remote areas, especially in America and Australia.
Question: Where can we find such a surface-near entry to your world?
Answer: Do you really think I will tell you their exact location? If you want to find such an entry, you have to search it by yourself (but I would advise you not to do that.) When I came to the surface four days ago, I used an entry approximately 300 of your kilometres north from here near to a large lake, but I doubt that you would be able to find it (there are only a few entries in this part of the world - more are far more north and east.) As a little advice: if you are in a narrow cave or in a tunnel or even in something that looks to you like an artificial mine shaft and as deeper you walk as smoother appear the walls and if you feel unusual warm air streaming from the depth or if you hear the rushing sound of streaming air in a ventilation or elevator shaft, then look for a special kind of artificial and smooth wall somewhere in the cave with a door made of gray metal. If you would be able to open that door (but I doubt this) you would be in a usually round technical room with ventilation systems and elevators to the depth. This is probably an entry to our world. If you have reached this point, you should know that we are now definetly aware of your presence. You are already in big trouble if you have entered the round room, but you should look for one of the two reptilian symbols on the walls. If there are no symbols or other symbols, you are maybe in bigger trouble as you think, because not every underground installation belongs to our kind. Some new tunnel systems are operated from alien races (including hostile races). My general advice if you find yourself in a for you strange underground installation: run away as fast as you can.
Question: You mentioned earlier that you use the name "Lacerta" when you are among humans and that you enjoy it to be in the real sun on the surface of earth. But how can you be among humans? You don't look like us, so anyone will see that you belong to another species. Why have nobody seen and described a being like you if your kind lives already since our "creation" together with us on the same planet. Can you explain that to me?
Answer: First, my kind was of course seen and described (and worshipped) many times in your primitive past, for example in your religious writings like your Christian Bible. You can find descriptions and even simple drawings of us for also in the southern part of the American continent on various temples. So-called "wise" men from India and from the Asian mountains have described our species many times in writings, together with other "wise" men from the African continent. I think we are the most mentioned non-human species (maybe beside the "Ilojiim") in your history. If you don't believe me, have a look at your history and you will see the truth in my words. Your "great" scientists called the belief in us "superstition" and "religion" and todays "intelligent" humans have forgotten our presence on the surface in the past.
Furthermore, our species is seen even today sometimes from human witnesses in its original shape on earth or in our surface-near entries and tunnel systems, but fortunately you and your media didn't take the reports of such "crazies" serious (that's good for us and that's the reason why we allow those people to see us as we really are.) Some of my species are also in direct contact with human scientists and politicians from the surface, but this is top-secret - as you would call it - and nobody of your public knows anything about it (the matter of this meetings is generally the upcoming war with and between the alien species and our assistance in this war). But there is also another explanation, why we can walk among you and why you are not able to recognize us: mimicry.
The following may again sound unbelievable and even shocking to you, but as you have asked I will expain it. I have told you before, that we have more advanced mental abilities then your species and with "more advanced" I mean, that we are able to use telepathy and telekinesis from our birth on (in fact, mother and new-born child communicate generally with telepathy during the first months) without special training as you need it to activate these sleeping parts of your brain. The structure of our brain is a little bit different to yours and our hypophyse is larger and more active then yours - especially when we are in sunlight. Our own abilities are very strong in comparison to yours, but weak in comparison to the "matterstring/bubble" mind forces of some of the alien species on this planet. I was never very good in that mind things, but we all have these primary abilities and can use them for example for our protection or even for attack.
When we are on the surface and we meet human beings (even a large group of them - this makes no difference. All of your minds are like one mind) we are able to "touch" their mind and induce them via telepathy the command "See us as one of your kind" and the weak human mind will accept this order without refusion and they will see us (despite our reptilian look) as normal humans. I've done this many times and you weak humans generally see me as an attractive brown-haired woman, because I have created this special "mimicry image" in my mind years ago and I can induce it into your minds without problems. I've needed some time at the beginning to learn the use of the mimicry correctly, but then it worked nearly automatically and I can even walk among a group of yours and nobody will recognize what I am. There is a simple switch ("See us as we really are / See us as we want you to see us") in your consciousness which was placed there from the "Ilojiim" when they created your kind and we can use this swich to convince you that you see humans when you look at us (other aliens use this switch, too). It is easier as you think. When there are meetings between your kind and aliens which seem to look exactly like yours, these aliens have used that switch and some of the meetings with man-like aliens can be also explained with meetings with my kind.) When I met E.F. the first time, he saw me also as a normal human woman and I remember that he was very frightened and shocked when I revealed him my real appearance.
Question: Do you mean, that you can really make me belief that I talk now with an attractive brown-haired human woman instead of a reptilian being like you?
Answer: Probably, but I don't think so in your special case. When someone expects to see a human woman instead of me, I can do it without problems with his mind (even with large groups) because nobody expects to see a reptile woman. But I have allowed your mind to see me in my original appearance from our first meeting on and I have never induced something into your mind, so you have already realized that I'm not human. If I would now try to change this, it would probably led to an absolute confusion or to unconsciousness and I don't want to harm you. As I have said I'm not very good in these things.
Question: That's very scary. Can you kill with that abilities?
Answer: Yes, but it's forbidden. This means not that it was not done in previous times.
Question: Have both sexes this abilities?
Question: What about photos? How do you appear on photos?
Answer: This is a silly question. I appear on photos as a reptile being, because I can't have influence on the photo or on the camera itself but only on the photographers mind. If he or she would develop the film and show the photo to others, they would see me in my original shape. That's the reason why it is forbidden for our kind to be filmed or photographed and we must avoid every camera on the surface (that is very difficult and we were filmed sometimes in the past whitout our knowledge, especially from certain of your goverments and secret agencies.)
Question: What other commands can your kind induce into our minds. Something like "Serve us" or "Obey"?
Answer: This is again a strange question. We are not your enemy (most of us not) so why should we do this? To answer your question: it depends on the strenght of the human mind and on the the strenght of the sending reptilian. There is no "Serve us" or "Serve me" switch in your mind, so such a command is much more difficult to induce. If the human mind and consciouness is weak and the reptilian inducer is experienced in these things and was some hours in the sun before he or she tries to do it, then it could probably work for a certain time. There are secret teachings about such things, but I've never learned anything about it. I use my primary abilities for mimicry and for communication with my own kind and sometimes for other private things, but I've never used it to harm humans or their mind. I would appreciate it if we can end with this topic here.
Question: A last question: you've said earlier, that you can hide your UFOs? Do you use the same abilities to do this?
Answer: Yes, but on a technical base. There is a powerful device inside each craft which is able to send an artificial signal to your minds to convince you, that you see either nothing but only the sky or that you see normal aircraft like planes instead of our ships. This isn't used very often, because we avoid human public when we move in the atmosphere. If you are able to see our "UFOs" it means that the device is either defect or deactivated for some reason. The camouflage effect didn't work on photos - to answer this possible question of you already in advance - but why should someone make a photo of the sky when he could not see anything unusual there. By the way, most of the surface-near entry points to our tunnels are also hidden with such a device and your kind will generally see only normal cave walls instead of the door. That's one reason why I've said that I doubt that you will be able to find such a secret door to our world (but it have happened a few times in the past.)
Question: Back to your and our own history. You've mentioned the race of the "Illojiim" who have created our human race. From where did they come and how did they look like? What had exactly happened when they arrived? Are they our "God"?
Answer: The "Illojiim" came from this universe, from the solar system you call "Aldebaran" in your maps. They were a very tall humanoid species whit usually blonde hairs and a very white skin (they avoided the sunlight, because it hurted their skin and their eyes. This was absolutely unbelievable for a sun-loving species like us). They seemed to be intelligent and peaceful at the beginning and we started a more or less friendly communication with them, but later they showed their real intentions and plans: they wanted to evolve the apes to a new breed and we were a disturbing factor for them on their new zoo planet. At first, they caught around 10,000 or maybe even 20,000 of your simian ancestors and they left the planet for some hundred years. When they returned, they brought your (now more human) ancestors back. Then they left Earth again for some thousands of years and the primitive pre-humans lived together with us without major problems (they were just afraid of our aircraft and technology). The "Illojiim" had tought their mind and enhanced their brain and their body structure and they were now able to use tools and fire. The "Illojiim" returned within 23,000 years seven times and accelerated the evolution speed of certain of your kind. You must understand, that you are not the first human civilization on the planet. The first advanced humans (who lived at the same time with less-developed pre-humans, because the "Illojiim" had experimented with different speeds and stages of evolution) with technology and speech existed around 700,000 years ago on this planet (your scientists have not understand this, because they've found only the bones of the pre-humans and some primitive cave drawings showing advanced humans and flying devices.) This genetically advanced human breed lived together with us, but they avoided contact with my kind, because the "Illojiim" teachers had warned them with misleading purpose that we are evil beings and that we lie to them.
Well, after some centuries the aliens decided to extinct their first creation and they accelerated the evoltion of a second and better test series and so on and so on. The truth is, that your modern human civilization is not the first on this planet Earth but already the seventh. The buildings of the first breeds are lost, but the fifth civilization was the one, which built the large triangular constructions you call "Egyptian Pyramids" today around 75,000 years ago (your Egyptians just found that large ancient pyramids in the sand and tried not very sucessful to built similar constructions) and the sixth civilization was the one, which built the cities which ruins you can find today beneath the sea in the so-called Bimini Area around 16,000 years ago. The last creation of the seventh breed - of your series - was done just 8,500 years ago and this is the only creation you can remember and to which your religious writings refer. You rely on archeological and paleonthological artefacts which show you a wrong and short past, but how should you know anything about the six civilizations before. And if you find evidence for their existence, you deny and misinterpret the facts. This is partly a programming of your mind and partly pure ignorance. I will tell you in the following only about your creations, because the six previous mankinds are lost and therefore they should not concern you.
There was a long war between us and the "Illojiim" and also between certain groups of the "Illojiim" themselves, because many of them were the opinion that the again-and-again creation of human species on this planet makes no real sense. The last battles in this war were fought around 5,000 years ago in orbit and surface. The aliens used powerful sonic weapons to destroy our underground cities but on the other hand we were able to destroy many of their surface installations and bases in space. The humans of your series were very frightened when they observed our battles and they wrote it down in form of religious myths (their mind was not able to understand what was really going on.) The "Illojiim" - who appeared as "gods" for the sixth and seventh breed - told them that it is a war between good and evil and that they are the good and we are the evil race. This depends certainly on the point of view. It was our planet before they arrived and before they started their evolution project with your kind. In my opinion, it was our right to fight for our planet. It was exactly 4,943 years ago - according to your time scale - that the Elohim left the planet again for unknown reasons (this is a very important date for us, because many of our historians called it a victory.) Fact is, that we don't know what had really happened. The "Illojiim" were gone from one day to another, they vanished without a trace together with their ships and we found most of their surface installations destroyed by them. The humans were on their own and your civilization devoleped. Many of us were in contact with certain (more southern) tribes of your species in the coming centuries and we were able to convince some of them that we are not the "Evil" the aliens wanted them to believe. During the time from 4,900 years ago to today, many other alien species arrived the planet (some of them used the old teaching and programming of your mind and "played" again God for you) but the "Illojiim" themselves never came back. They had left the planet for a duration of some thousand years also earlier, so we expect their return one day in future to end their project or to maybe extinct also the seventh breed, but we don't really know what have happened to them (to answer this question of you in advance).
Your current civilization don't know anything about your real origin, about your real past, about your real world and universe and you know very little about us and our past. And you know nothing about the things to come in near future. As long as you will not understand and believe my words - I tell you the truth because we are not your enemy - as long there is danger for your species. Your enemies are already here and you have not understand. Open your eyes or you will be in big trouble soon. If you haven't believed anything of the things I've told you before, then you should really believe and remember this.
Question: Why do you think I don't believe you?
Answer: I have a certain feeling that you don't believe me, despite the fact that I'm sitting here in front of you. Everything I have told you in the last two hours is the absolute truth about our world.
Question: How many alien species are active on earth at the moment?
Answer: As far as we know 14 species. 11 from this universe, 2 from another "bubble" and 1 very advanced from a very different plain. Don't ask me for names, because nearly all are not pronouncable for you, eight of them are not pronouncable even for us. Most of the species - especially the more advanced - are just studying you as animals and they are not very dangerous for you and for us and we work together with some of them, but three species are hostile, including the one which was in contact with some of your governments and exchanged their technology for copper and other important things and which had betrayed your kind. There was and is a "cold war" between two of these hostile races during the last 73 years and the third species seemed to be the "winner" in this useless struggle. We expect a more "hot" war between them and you in the near future (I would say in the next 10 or 20 years) and we are worried about that development. In the last time, there were some rumours about a new, fifteenth species which had arrived on Earth just 3 or 4 years ago, but we don't know anything about their intentions and we were not in contact with them till now. Maybe the rumours are wrong.
Question: What do the hostile alien races want?
Answer: Various raw materials, including copper for their technology, your water (or better the hydrogen in your water, which is a source of energy in advancded fusion processes) and certain chemical elements in your air. Furthermore, two of the species are also interested in your body, in your human tissue and blood, because their own genetic structure is defect through bad evolution and radiation (as far as we know) and they need intact strings from your kind and from animals to repair their own genetic again and again, but they are not really able to repair the defects completely because their DNA and your DNA is not fully compatible (my own species is absolutely incompatible with them, so they are not very interested in us) and they try to make more compatible crossbreeds between you and them by use of artificial fertizilations and artificial wombs. We suppose that the coming war between the three races or between you and one or all of them will be fought for raw material, hydrogen, air and DNA.
Question: Is this the reason for the "abductions"?
Answer: Partly, especially when the aliens took egg and sperm samples from you. Sometimes the abducters belong to another and more advanced race and they just want to study your body and your mind (which is more interesting for some of them then your solid body) as you would study a primitive animal. As I have said, three alien species are hostile and this means that they do not care for your fate or for your life and people who were "abducted" by them came very rarely back alive. If someone is able to report about an abduction, it means in my opinion that he or she has not met one of the aggressive species or that he or she is a very very lucky human to be alive. Advanced and "friendly" races also took sometimes egg and sperm samples, but for other reasons.
Question: You've said there are only 14 species active on earth. But why desribe people who saw alien beings so many different and bizzare types of them?
Answer: I think I have already answered to this question. As I have said, most of the alien races have much more advanced mind abilities then you or even me (there is just one alien race completely without such abilities). They are able to appear in your mind and memory as whatever they want and this induced "image" have nothing to do with their real appearance. You remember them as normal humans or grey dwarfs or even extremly bizarre animals because they want you to remember that or sometimes they want you to completely forget anything about a meeting with them. Another example: you can for example remember that you were just in a normal of your human hospitals and that some doctors were examining you and you think not further about what have happened to you (maybe till you discover that there is no hospital in the street were you supposed it) but in fact you were examined by them in one of their laboratories. You can't rely on your mind in this case. They appear in different shapes to you to confuse you and to make so-called abduction witnesses who were able to remember the events - or who believe they are able to remember - ridicolous in the public and as far as we know, they are sucessful. Believe me, there are only 14 alien species on this planet and only eight of them abduct humans at the moment (again as far as we know.) In addition, not everyone of your "abductees" is one and some of the aliens in their reports are really just imagination or lies.
Answer: How can we protect us against this influence on our mind?
Question: I don't know. I doubt you can, because your mind is like an open book to read and write for nearly every species I know. This is partly the guilty of the "Illojiim" themselves, because they had constructed or better mis-constructed (partly intentionally) your mind and your consciousness without real protection mechanisms. If you are aware that someone tries to manipulate your mind, you can only concentrate on that suspicion and try to analyze every of your thoughts and memories. Very important: don't close your eyes (this would led to a different form of brain waves which are more easy to access) and don't sit or lay down to rest. If you stay awake during the first minutes, you can maybe try to filter the other thoughts and waves in your brain and the inducer will give up after some minutes if he or she is not sucessful because it will start to hurt his or her own brain. This is very difficult and certainly painful and it can harm you, so better don't try to resist but it would be the only possibility you have. However, you can try this only with the more weaker species, not with the strong.
Question: What do you mean with "one species comes from a very different plain"?
Answer: Before I can explain that correctly to you, you must be able to understand the universe and this would mean a maybe useless teaching of your mind (including the remove of some barriers) of many weeks and with teaching I mean not only teaching by words. I have said this with your word "plain" or "level" because you have again no better word in your vocabulary and dimension would be in this case absolutely wrong (it's rather wrong even for another "bubble") because a dimension can't exist without plains. If you would be a species living in another or over the plain and if you would be furthermore able to enter plains without technology so that your body is not made of that kind of matter you know, then you would be the mightiest being you can imagine. This very advanced race I've mentioned had developed outside of here and they've evolved in fact over billions of years. They would be able to destroy all of you and us and everything with just a single thought. We were in contact with them only 3 times in our whole history, because their interest in your planet is different from that of all other races. They are definetly no danger for you or us.
Question: What will happen when the war begins?
Answer: This is difficult to answer. It depends on the enemy race and on their tactic. "War" is not always that primitive thing you humans mean with the word, "War" can be fought on various levels. One possibility they have is the "destruction" of your social system by influence on political leaders, another is the use of advanced weapon systems which can cause earthquakes or vulcanic eruptions or other disasters (including weather disasters) which may seem natural to you. The special fields from copper-fusion I've mentioned earlier are able to have an influence on your global weather. I think they will not attack the planet directly before the human civilization is weak, because even you have possibilities to destroy their craft (but not many.) Let me say, that we are not absolutely sure if there will be really such a "hot" war already in the next years. I don't want to talk further about this.
Question: This is the end of the interview. Do you want to say a last sentence or message?
Answer: Open your eyes and see. Don't believe only in your wrong history or your scientists or your policians. Some of them know the truth about various things, but they don't inform the public to avoid confusion and panic. I think your species is not as bad as some of my kind think and it would be a pity to observe your end. That's everything I can say. Go through your world with open eyes and you will see - or maybe not. Your kind is ignorant.
Question: Do you think anyone will believe that this interview is the truth?
Answer: No, but it is an interesting experiment for my social studies. We will meet again in some months and you will tell me then what have happened after the publication of my message. Maybe there is hope for your kind.
