  • Anomaly Archives / Human Potential Center front officeBigger Anomaly Archives Spaces Coming Soon!

The Anomaly Archives is working with the Human Potential Center to move our collections and start a new office in the two-story garage apartment onsite at the Human Potential Campus. This garage apartment was the originally intended birthing space for the Anomaly Archives and is three to four times the size of the library’s current location within the main house of the Human Potential Center.

Two Story Garage Apartment to be New Home of Anomaly ArchivesThe space requires much work to bring it up to the needs of the Anomaly Archives lending library but I have no doubt that we can, with your help, upgrade this great new space for the Scientific Anomaly Institute to grow into its next phase.

Once completed this new space will allow for our collections to continue to grow while also providing upstairs and outdoors meeting spaces, a bathroom and kitchen of its own and much more.

The Human Potential Center and Anomaly Archives will be holding a Garage Clean-Out Yard Sale very soon to make way for the two organizations to begin the necessary upgrades required before the Archives collections can officially move in.

If you’d like to help with the Garage Cleaning / Yard Sale contact SMiles Lewis by email via ARCHIVES [at] ELFIS.NET

  • Website Improvements Coming Soon

Several upgrades and reorganizations are planned for the and websites. We are going to make them much more easy to navigate and more useful for you and others to visit on a regular basis. Look for a renovation of the digital collections listsings and much more coming soon.

  • Black Hole created in the lab?Creating Black Holes in the Lab? BBC news Reports.

Lab fireball ‘may be black hole’

Creating the conditions for the formation of black holes is one of the aims of particle physics.

A fireball created in a US particle accelerator has the characteristics of a black hole, a physicist has said.

It was generated at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in New York, US, which smashes beams of gold nuclei together at near light speeds.

Horatiu Nastase says his calculations show that the core of the fireball has a striking similarity to a black hole.

His work has been published on the pre-print website and is reported in New Scientist magazine.

“The Rooftop Madman” Appears in Santa Fe Argentina

INEXPLICATAThe Journal of Hispanic Ufology

March 6, 2005 – translated by Scott Corales

A Mysterious Character Harasses Santa Fe Residents – 03.04.05

Local residents say it jumps from house to house, is dressed in black and has red eyes. After hundreds of complaints, police is looking for it. Listen to the Sheriff’s story on Radio 10.

Santa Fe is jumping. Residents of the southern area are frightened by the appearance of a strange entity they’ve dubbed “the rooftop madman” and who – according to their accounts – leaps from roof to roof engaging in acrobatics.

Witness claim it stands two meters tall, is entirely clad inblack and wears a balaclava; it sports a cape and its eyes shine red according to the information received by researchers. This character is able to cross the streets by leaping from one rooftop to the next, taking acrobatic leaps that can be of up to five meters high and ten meters long.

“He looks like the cat man,” say some locals. “His outline is barely visible, his figure. He never showed his face, but they say they’ve seen his eyes and that they have a reddish cast.”

In an interview with Radio 10, Sheriff Gabriel Legstra acknowledged that “there is a widespread psychosis. In recent days we have received hundred of reports at our radio command center.”

“On Tuesday I dispatched 18 units to assuage people’s fears. But ultimately there is no other crime than tresspassing here. The character goes from one roof to the next, appears inside a house, has pressed his face against a window but hasn’t attacked anyone.”

The psychosis is growing among residents of southern Santa Fe in spite of having never been attacked. Police confirm that in recent days calls have multiplied, reporting a man leaping from one rooftop to the next “like a madman”.

  • Texas UFO Sightings: Oval-Shaped UFO Seen in Fort Worth, Texas

UFO ROUNDUP Volume 10, Number 12

March 23, 2005 by Editor: Joseph Trainor

On Saturday, March 19, 2005, at 8:20 p.m., Bryce Griffith was outdoors in his neighborhood in Fort Worth, Texas (population 534,694) when he noticed “a strange object approaching from the west.”

“I was walking out to the backyard to feed my dog, and I looked up in the sky,” Bryce reported, “I saw an oval-shaped, metallic-colored object, twice the size of a fighter jet. It had lights on four sides. Two on the front and two on the back–they were just white. There were two on the opposite sides that were colored.”

“The UFO didn’t make a sound, even though it was flying low. I’m not sure about the height (altitude–J.T.) About 300 feet (90 meters). It was going faster than a fighter jet, though not that much faster.”

  • Battelle, UFOs and Digital Talking Books

Battelle Leading Effort to Design Next-Generation Talking Book Player

PressRelease via — COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 21 — The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress, has chosen a consortium led by Battelle to design and develop its next-generation digital talking book players.

Battelle is working with HumanWare, the National Federation of the Blind, and the Trace Center to develop a new player to meet the needs of the blind and physically handicapped and others with print disabilities. The new flash- based player will be lightweight, portable, and durable, and is expected to be freely distributed to over 700,000 individuals in the U.S.

“We are excited to have brought this exceptional group of companies on board. We have great confidence in their capabilities and we know that the product they design will be a success for our patrons,” says Frank Kurt Cylke, NLS director.

Digital talking books revolutionize the reading experience by providing advanced features such as ease of navigation, better audio quality, and the ability to enter bookmarks. Additionally, a complete book will fit on a single flash memory card.

One of the main goals in the Anomaly Archives mission statement is to act as a networking point for like-minded organizations and information resources. As you probably noticed, a lot of our news gathering comes from these great online resources including:

      • Joseph Trainor’s UFO RoundUp is a wonderful read that always has fantastic information available for free online at it’s home <>
      • The Anomalist newswire is an incredible resource updated throughout the day. An off-shoot of it’s print predecessor, this site has turned into the DrudgeReport of anomaly news gathering. Check out
      • The UFO UpDates eList operated by Errol Bruce-Knapp and archived online at is one of the best lists to read as it features a wide variety of noteworthy perspectives of people actively doing UFO research.
      • Abductee, Experiencer, Mind Kontrol Victim, and Writer Whitley Strieber. Whitley’s site is a phenomenal site for paranormal news plus he and his wife Anne Strieber contribute their own analysis of the news.

In the spirit of networking there is this good news that I learned of via the UFO UpDates eList:

Launch of INET: International Network of Experiencer Therapists

INET launches; made possible by alliance of organizations

On behalf of the International Contact Support Network (ICSN), the John E. Mack Institute (JEMI), the Organization for Paranormal Understanding and Support (OPUS), and, we hope, other organizations to be announced, I’d like to briefly share news about an effort we have allied for:

We are coming together for the purpose of maintaining a master network or directory of therapists who service the “experiencer” population – people whose lives have been deeply affected by alien encounters or similar extraordinary experiences. We are allied for a priority that supersedes any of our varying opinions and beliefs about aliens: helping people-in-need without pathologizing them.

It is our collective intention to broaden this alliance to include other groups in the United States, Canada, and abroad that have each been attempting to maintain their own regional lists of clinicians. Each group will then invite the therapists they know and trust into the network, which we have dubbed the International Network of Experiencer Therapists (INET).

This network is owned by no one but serves many. Furthermore, it is a secure network, accessible only by representatives of each group of the alliance and by the therapists themselves.

(Therapists can also use INET for secure communication between colleagues). Currently, OPUS and JEMI have begun to invite the therapists whom they know into INET, and others are making preparations to do the same.

At this time we would like to invite interested parties – representatives of organizations who have similar needs and similar clinical lists – to please contact any of us for more information on how to ally with this effort for the benefit of all.

I hasten to mention that this secure network is entirely free, and if that sounds too good to be true, be assured that truth can indeed be stranger than fiction. (We have several people to thank for making this possible, but I want to keep this announcement brief). Signed by Will Bueche.

  • Paul Rydeen Collection

Back during the Zine Scene heydays of the 90s I met writer / researcher Paul Rydeen. Famous for his research into the Cargo Cults phenomena as well as his writings in Crash Collusion and other magazines, Paul has amassed an incredible array of books.

Cargo of the Gods? by Paul Rydeen

“Cargo cults and saucer groups are alike in having a millenial ideal; the forms this ideal takes are remarkably similar. They both have a non-personal entity (the ancestors and the Space Brothers) expected to manifest via mechanical vehicles (planes, ships, UFOs) bringing cargo (chocolate bars, radios, and postnuclear peacekeeping technology) and a just salvation. The impetus for both groups is not necessarily the material goods, but the status they bring….”

Topics in these donated collections are diverse, ranging from Ancient Civilizations (Atlantis and such), to the UFO Contactee movement of the 1950s and 60s, to Government and Military research into Mind Control techniques and technologies, with numerous first editions of classic UFO books and much, much more. Look for the entire cataloged collection to be posted in an upcoming issue. Here’s just a taste …

Mind Control Classics:

physical control of the mind by jose delgadoMind Control, MKultra and beyondPhysical Control of the Mind: Toward a Psychocivilized Society
by Jose M. Delgado. Don’t forget the good doctor’s congressional testimony in 1974 where he stated:

“We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated.”

“The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain.”

battle for the mind by william sargantDr. Jose M.R. Delgado Director of Neuropsychiatry Yale University Medical School, Congressional Record, No. 26, Vol. 118 February 24, 1974

Battle for the Mind: A Physiology of Conversion and Brainwashing by William Sargant. “How Evangelists, Psychiatrist, Politicians, and Medicine Men can change your beliefs and behavior.”

Mind Control in the United States by Steven Jacobson

Also in the recently donated Rydeen Collection are …

Rare Fortean, UFO, Alien Abduction and Contactee Books:

proceedings of the first international ufo congress by curtis g. fullerProceedings of the First International UFO Congress by Curtis G. Fuller. I’d never even heard of this conference, let alone the book covering the event proceedings. This looks like a fantastic resource snapshot of leading edge thoughts on UFOs circa 1980. There is even a huge section, “Part Six: UFOs as Mind Phenomena” wherein Stan Friedman admits to psychological factors but insists on the nuts and bolts reality of the phenomena. Elsewhere Jacques Vallee apparently reflects on the UFO as a sort of “paranormal software.” Other presentors include Kenneth Arnold, James A. Harder, Ted Philips, Frank B. Salisbury, David M. Jacobs, Jerome Clark, J. Allen Hynek, Ted Bloecher, Betty Hill, Alvin H. Lawson, Curtis Fuller, Jim Lorenzen, David Stupple, R. Leo Sprinkle, Berthold Eric Schwartz, and J. Gordan Melton.

Rebirth of Pan: Hidden Faces of the American Earth Spirit – by James Brandon. This is an incredibly rare book you will be hearing more from me about in the near future. This book documents the Gaian UFO Intelligence hypothesis I hope to write more about very soon. Equally curious is the true identity behind the pen name James Brandon. Also written under this pseudonym was the book Weird America: A Guide to Places of Mystery in the United States.

UFO Contact at Pascagoula by Charles Hickson and William Mendez – A truly rare book written by Charles Hickson about he and Calvin Parkers abduction by wrinkly-skinned “clawmen” in Pascagoula, Mississippi, the night of October 11th, 1973. A fascinating abduction case that drives home the emotional torment experienced by UFO close encounter witnesses while having a wildly different type of entity compared to the big-eyed, big-headed grays. I can’t wait to read this book!

Sex and Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons – by John Carter with and introduction by Robert Anton Wilson. Paul was kind enough to donate a copy of the new revised edition autographed by John Carterß. From the Feral House mini-site:

In his short 37 years, John Whiteside “Jack” Parsons embodied at least several different roles in one tormented but glorious life.

By day, Parsons’ unorthodox genius created a solid rocket fuel that helped the Allies win World War II and NASA send spacecraft to the moon. Co-founder of Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Aerojet Corporation, a lunar crater was named after Parsons.

By night, Parsons called himself The Antichrist when he performed Aleister Crowley’s Thelemic rituals to create a new sort of human being that would finally destroy Christianity.

In a Pasadena mansion, the dark, handsome Parsons hosted soirees for the emerging literature of science fiction, visited by writers such as Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, and none other than L. Ron Hubbard, who later founded the Church of Scientology. With Hubbard playing his “Scribe,” Parsons enacted dark “Babalon” rituals to help foment a new occult age. Jack Parsons died suddenly in a huge, mysterious explosion that even today cannot be definitively explained.

Was it murder? Suicide?
Or just an accident?

Feral House‘s paperback edition adds new photographs and an Afterword about Parsons’ “Black Pilgrimage.”

Why UFOs – Operation Trojan Horse by John A. Keel – This is one of my all time favorite UFO books. It is an incredible introduction to the breadth of ufology and was written in 1970. From the book jacket…


“Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?

“The Air Force and the CIA are not in a conspiracy to silence the believers, as the cultist claim. The experts were rendered mute by the awesome and overwhelming realization that man is not alone; that the human race is merely a trifling part of something bigger – something that could drive the human mind into madness.

“The real UFO story must encompass all of the many manifestations being observed. It is a story of ghosts and phantoms and strange mental aberations; of an invisible world which surrounds us and occasionally engulfs us; of prophets and prophecies, of gods and demons. It is a world of illusion and hallucination where the unreal seems very real and where reality itself is distorted by strange forces which can seemingly manipulate space and time and physical matter — forces which are almost entirely beyond our powers of comprehension!”

An Account of a Meeting with Denizens of Another World – written in 1871 by William Robert Loosley. Edited and with commentary by David Langford.

The Presence of Other Worlds: The Findings of Emanuel Swedenborg by Wilson Van Dusen (keep reading for information on the new Swedenborg Collection added to the Jung Society of Austin’s library holdings).

Box after box in this mammoth donation by Paul Rydeen we find a wealth of exciting new materials including …

  • Jung Society’s Latest Additions: Emanuel Swedenborg Collection

Emanuel SwedenborgFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Emanuel Swedenborg (born Swedberg) (January 29, 1688–March 29, 1772), Swedish scientist, philosopher and mystic, was born in Stockholm as the third son of the renowned, but controversial, priest Jesper Swedberg. After concerning himself with scientific matters until he was 55 years old, Emanuel experienced a crisis, during which he claimed he gained entrance to a spiritual world where he talked with angels and spirits, many of them dead and some only known from the Bible, such as Moses and Jesus. Amongst other things, these spirits enlightened him about the true meaning of the Scriptures.

Picture on right is of Emanuel Swedenborg, 75, holding the manuscript of Apocalypsis Revelata (1766).

On Wikipedia’s page for Swedenborg you can learn more about his Early life as well as his Scientific period and Scientific contributions.

  • “April uFOOLogy Day”-

ParaPolitical use of UFOs and the Paranormal for CovertOps by SMiles Lewis

One of the things I am always harping to people about is the use of UFOs and the paranormal in psychological warfare tactics and covert operations perpetrated by governments, militaries and corporations around the world. Whether by planting and promoting news stories or by faking sightings with advanced black-program aircraft and holographic projections or even through the manipulation of UFO cults like Heaven’s Gate or the use of magicians illusions to deceive an enemy, history is filled with examples of humans manipulating humans through beliefs in “supernatural” signs and portents.

A few years ago, the government admitted that it had let some of the UFO sightings in the Air Force’s Project Blue Book files to be labeled “Unidentified” at the time because they knew that some were actually sightings of the then still secret U2 spylane. This is just the small end of the scale compared to the disinfo campaign deployed against Paul Benewitz when he got too close to top-secret projects at Kirtland Air Force base in the 1980s. In both cases, agents of the United States government, through paid personnel of the Air Force as well as willing civilian disinfo agents like William Moore, systematically lied to the American people, and in the Bennewitz case, admittedly circumvented the United States Constitution under the protection of National Security, eventually driving Bennewitz insane. The Bennewitz Affair effectively seeded the UFO community with memes that lowered the level of discourse in ufology to talk of underground alien bases in Dulce, New Mexico, treaties between aliens and the US government allowing for the wholesale abduction of and experimentation upon humanity and worse – the hybridizing of aliens with humans and the mutilation of cattle for still unknown purposes.

UFOs as a “Strategy of Tension” – Vallee Uncovers the “Martian Conspiracy” Behind WWII

Jacques Vallee is one of the few (and was the first) UFO researcher to touch upon this important aspect of UFO research – the use of “UFOs” as a decoy or strategem to accomplish some other goal that may have nothing to do with supposed extraterrestrials and their craft. He first began hinting at this possibility in his book Invisible College – What a Group of Scientists Has Discovered About UFO Influences on the Human Race in 1975. Then in his 1979 book Messengers of Deception he cited the then recently declassified information from the excellent book on WWII disinformation machinery, Bodyguard of Lies, that describes the massive “double cross” efforts of the LCS, London Controlling Section (referred to by the Brits as the “Martians”). It was this Intelligence Alliance that facilitated (some might say orchestrated) the allied victory. Vallee speculates about the probability that these same Psy-Op tactics, technologies and Intelligence networks continued
their disinformation efforts after the war – only this time to prevent another World War by uniting humanity against a common enemy. Vallee goes on to document the common military tactic and meme of manufacturing an enemy in order to rally populations into a unified force, whether it be to start a war with the perceived enemy or to prevent a war by uniting countries against a common outside threat, be it “Terrorism” or “Extraterrestrials”. He cites several late 1940s era science fiction novels dealing with the theme of using an extraterrestrial threat to unite the world. He cites the infamous Report From Iron Mountain hoax which outlines an allegedly tongue-in-cheek thesis about war as the best way to ensure economic stability and how the invention of threats, be they extraterrestrial or ecological, would be necessary.

Vallee began linking psychological control methods or “mind control” research to UFOs subtley in his book Invisible College where he proposed the idea that Waves of UFO Sightings seem to mimic a Psychological Schedule of Reinforcement.

Vallee compiled a plot of UFO waves through history and their irregular spacing suggested to Fred Becjman and Dr Price-Williams of UCLA a schedule of reinforcement designed to permanently instill a behaviour. Vallee developed from this observation the theory that UFOs represent a control system of an undetermined nature. It could simply involve social psychology, but it could also be the imposition of a supernatural will seeking to confuse us and mould us and our civilisation by targeting our collective unconscious with a physical and psychic technology. The book closes on a chilling soliloquy wherein Vallee ponders stepping outside the maze of the control system. Would he find some Lovecraftian horror, some well-meaning social engineers, or “the maddening simplicity of unattended clockwork?”

From Part 2 of ALIENATING FANCIES-The influencing machine fantasy in ufology and the extraterrestrial mythos by Martin S. Kottmeyer, in Magonia 50, September 1994 <>

John Keel may actually have beaten Vallee to the punch on this arena. He hinted at as much in his 1970 book Why UFOs – Operation Trojan Horse.

“Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?”

About 1989 artist and writer Martin Cannon published “The Controllers – A new hypothesis of Alien Abduction” that concretized the data connecting the United States government’s exploits in mind control research (a la ARTICHOKE, BLUEBIRD, PANDORA, MKDELTA, MKSEARCH and the infamous MKULTRA) and many specific aspects reported in UFO close encounters and especially in claimed Alien Abductions. The overwhelming evidence of some sort of connection between UFO sightings, alien abduction reports and covert operations involving mind control experimentation seeped into the public consciousness largely through the UFO community exploding with talk of these possibilities. But it was the incredibly popular television series The X-Files that really catapulted this notion of some of the Ufo and alien abduction phenomenon being the continuation of the CIA’s (and other alphabet agencies) history of research into mind control and non-lethal weapons system testing.

In one of my favorite episodes, called Jose Chung’s From Outer Space, they deal quite directly with the idea that the military might benefit from having a technology that immitates a UFO or “holy miracle”. This is the X-Files’ most humorous episode incorporating the spirit of both John Keel and Jacques Vallee. This episode serves as an excellent Introduction to UFOs.

It was towards the end of The X-Files series, that the writers began to delve into the notion that the myth of little grey aliens abducting humans was in fact the cover story for a much more convoluted conspiracy involving machiavellian conflicts amongst warring human elites as well as an alien pressence that had more of the qualities of a virus than our traditional concept of humanoid extraterrestrials.

[Listen to the end of this podcast to here a mysterious secret audio track from the X-Files soundtrack featuring X-Files creator Chris Carter describing this complex conspiracy]

In recent years, a number of writers and researchers have addressed the issue of the potential use of “UFOs” as a sort of Grand Deception to get the nation’s of the earth aligned with the United States, since they are reported to have secured a flying saucer and alien specimens as far back as 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico. Here are a few references to this subject:


Battelle, UFOs and Digital Talking Books

Battelle Memorial InstituteIn my day job I produce audiobooks for the blind and print disabled. So when I recently read the headlines about who would be developing the new digital audio player for our national program I was chagrinned to read that it involved the name Battelle. From the press release:

Battelle Leading Effort to Design Next-Generation Talking Book Player

COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 21 — The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress, has chosen a consortium led by Battelle to design and develop its next-generation digital talking book players.

Battelle is working with HumanWare, the National Federation of the Blind, and the Trace Center to develop a new player to meet the needs of the blind and physically handicapped and others with print disabilities. The new flash- based player will be lightweight, portable, and durable, and is expected to be freely distributed to over 700,000 individuals in the U.S.

One of the probable reasons for ufo researcher Jacques Vallee’s suspicions about the potential use of UFOs as a form of Disinfo and “Double Cross” was his 1967 discovery of what has become known as the “Pentacle Memo.” This document led Vallee to the discovery of secret dealings between Battelle Memorial Institute and the United States Military / Intelligence complex and plans to simulate large waves of UFOs. All of this information was kept secret from the famous scientific Robertson Panel that was tasked by the United States government to assess UFOs. From Vallee’s correspondance on the importance of the memo, we read…

“… the Pentacle proposal goes far beyond anything mentioned before. It daringly states that “many different types of aerial activity should be secretly and purposefully scheduled within the area.” It is difficult to be more clear. We are not talking simply about setting up observing stations and cameras. We are talking about large-scale, covert simulation of UFO waves under military control.

The greatest implication, which is perhaps not obvious on first reading but which amounts to a scandal of major proportion in the eyes of any scientist, has to do with the outright manipulation of the Robertson panel. Here is a special meeting of the five most eminent scientists in the land, assembled by the government to discuss a matter of national security. Not only are they not made aware of all the data, but another group has already decided “what can and cannot be discussed (Pentacle’s own words!)” when they meet. Dr. Hynek categorically stated to me that the panel was not briefed about the Pentacle proposals.

Revelation of this document may seem irrelevant to Just Cause, but its explosive nature wasn’t lost on Battelle. As I noted in Forbidden Science, and as Fred Beckman vividly recalls to this day, the Project Stork team reacted with fury when Hynek went back to Battelle in 1967, demanding to know the truth. The man I have called Pentacle snatched his notes away and told him in no uncertain terms that the contents of the memo were not to be discussed, under any circumstances.

I find it odd that a group that claims to be interested in the historical study of our field, as Just Cause does, should fail to see the significance of the Pentacle Memo, which is an authentic document, when so much time, money and ink have been devoted over the last several years to an in-depth analysis of the MJ-12 papers, which were faked. Perhaps the Pentacle memo only proves that scientific studies of UFOs (and even their classified components) have been manipulated since the fifties. But it also suggests several avenues of research which are vital to the future of this field: why were Pentacle’s proposals kept from the panel? Were his plans for a secret simulation of UFO waves implemented? If so, when, where and how?  What was discovered as a result? Are these simulations still going on?

Coast to Coast AM with Art BellArt Bell, Linda Moulton Howe, Project Beta, and Goverment UFO Disinfo

At the end of February of this year, on the tails of the ABC News UFO documentary, Greg Bishop appeared on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell to discuss the revelations in Greg’s new book, PROJECT BETA. Among the many revelations on the show was that special guest Richard Doty fessed up for the first time publicly to his complicity in the Paul Bennewitz Affair, the burglarizing of the Bennewitz home and offices under the cloak of national security, the disinformation campaigns employing ufologist Bill Moore and and attempts to disinform Linda Moulton Howe. But the topper of all this is his alleged viewing of a debriefing film that proves Roswell was real and that we did in fact have at least one living alien survivor from that crash – who also liked to eat strawberry icecream. Art Bell was wowed several times during the 4 hour interview, saying several times what an important show this was.

From the Coast to Coast website entry for that show we read…

“Gov’t Disinformation Programs:
Fringe-culture historian and publisher of The Excluded Middle, Greg Bishop, shared the story of a government authorized campaign of disinformation that defined an era of alien paranoia and destroyed the life of the late Paul Bennewitz.

Greg BishopAccording to Bishop’s account, Bennewitz detected strange lights and radio signals coming from Kirtland Air Force Base outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico. An electrical physicist and pilot, Bennewitz believed he had stumbled upon alien communications, possibly the beginning signs of an extraterrestrial invasion. Alarmed by his findings, Bennewitz contacted the military and other government agencies, Bishop said.

Project Beta by Greg BishopEnter counter-intelligence officer Richard Doty, a surprise guest who joined the discussion with Art and Bishop. Doty contends that Bennewitz was close to uncovering top military secrets, so the government began a disinformation campaign against him to keep him believing the signals and lights were of alien origin. Bennewitz eventually ended up in mental institution for several months, a tragedy for which Doty feels some remorse.

Doty also claims to have personally fed lies and disinformation to frequent Coast guest Linda Moulton Howe, while she was working on a UFO special for HBO. Among Doty’s other startling revelations during the program were that Roswell actually happened (he’s seen the briefing film), a living alien was recovered, and the government was involved in cattle mutilations.”


So is Richard Doty continuing his job as disinformationalist? Was he using the huge listenership of the Art Bell show to perpetuate more belief that the United States government has access to bodies and technologies from an “alien” culture? Who knows. But even if a huge percentage of the UFO phenomena were simply government covert-operations that doesn’t change the possibility that in a universe as vast and strange as ours … there still are probably other intelligences out there. And if they are “out there” – they seem bound to be … down here, eventually, if they aren’t here already.

This Coast to Coast interview was a very important piece of the Matrix of UFO Disinformation. I hope to publish a more comprehensive analysis of it in the near future. Perhaps we can interview Greg Bishop and pick his brains about the use of UFOs and related phenomena in covert operations and psychological warfare.

Tune in next time to see…



Ventana Del SoulTuesday, April 5th – IONS Austin presents …

Spiritual Cinema Night – “Fratello Sole, Sorella Luna” aka Brother Sun, Sister Moon. 6:30 pm Short Film / 7:15 pm Feature Film Begins.

This is a dramatization of events in the life of St. Francis of Assisi from before his conversion experience through his audience with the pope, including his friendship with St. Clare.

Brother Sun, Sister Moon focuses on the early years of Francis of Assisi, who sought communion with the natural world by renouncing his family’s riches to seek his own destiny unencumbered by material possessions. Francis was, in a sense, history’s first “drop-out”; he left a life of comfort to seek a spiritual union with the world. Brother Sun, Sister Moon is an uncommonly rewarding and meaningful film experience. This Academy Award® -nominated film was co-scripted by Lina Wertmuller and Franco Zeffirelli.

Suggested Donation: $5 or $3 for Students. Coffee & Ice Cream Social after the film.
