The Mystery of
Friday June 8th, 2007
Linda Moulton Howe and I have been deeply involved in the mystery of
the "Drones," the first pictures of which appeared on the Coast to
Coast AM website in May. Subsequently, Linda interviewed "Sylvia" on
Dreamland and got pictures from "Mr Smith" in Birmingham, Alabama.
She also spoke extensively to him, as she did to "Chad," and is
convinced of their honesty.
Throughout the process, I have obtained analysis of the pictures
offered, with little success because of the generally low resolution
and the proliferation of effects programs more sophisticated than
Photoshop that can make virtually undetectable inclusions in still
So far, no video of the object has emerged, however, there are now
new still pictures on the UFO Casebook website.
These images are startlingly convincing, and the only thing that
prevents me from declaring that they are real is that special
effects are just so sophisticated. However, for the purposes of this
journal, I am going to go beyond the question of whether or not they
are real and ask another question: if they are real, what might that
Understand, please, this does NOT mean that I'm endorsing these
images. I believe Sylvia, Chad and Mr. Smith, but I cannot endorse
the images because I cannot, personally and beyond doubt, prove that
they are authentic. Prior to seeing the images posted on UFO
Casebook, I might have thought that the objects were manmade. But
the one that was supposedly photographed in the Big Basin area of
Northern California must be enormous. It is not the same as the one
shot by Chad or the one shot by Mr. Smith. This is a gigantic
device, probably weighing tons, judging from its appearance.
It hangs in the air, exhibiting no aerodynamic qualities, no
engines, no means of lift at all. Structurally, it is entirely
purpose-built. There is no allowance made at all for its need to
stay airborne and to move. This means that its means of propulsion
are either not known publicly, or not known to us at all.
The photographs were made from a significant distance and there was
haze in the air, and the object's appearance is absolutely
consistent with it actually being in the sky, right down to the
deterioration of detail that is involved in the tips of the strange
"crown" that appears on the top of this and other some of the other
So, if it's a fake, its a very good one, and the wide array of
witnesses and variety of photographs would mean an elaborate hoax,
which Chad, Sylvia and Mr. Smith--all apparently unconnected and all
sounding entirely sincere over hours of conversation--all in
collusion and all lying. But what if they aren't lying? Then what's
going on? Certainly, nothing like this has ever been seen before.
So, one has to ask, if this is not of human manufacture, then does
it represent a new presence in our world? And, if so, what might it
The chances of it being a secret military device were always remote.
Now, if the new pictures are real, they are remote to the vanishing
point--but still, of course, not impossible. However, I know people
who are hard at work on exotic propulsion systems of various kinds,
and I have never heard a whisper about anything like this.
In fact, it is so exotic, so strange, its design so 'movie-like,'
that, if it is an alien object, then I think it has been
intentionally designed to make us think it's a special effect, right
down to the writing seen on the object in the Chad photos, with its
resemblance to Klingon and some other science fiction movie
So there is an attempt going on to hide it in plain sight, and this
leads me to think that it might indeed mark the arrival of somebody
new. I have seen grays appear and disappear before my eyes on
numerous occasions. In one multiple witness event that I was part
of, one of them appeared beside the bed of a filmmaker who was at my
cabin, transformed before his eyes from a little man with a huge
head to a creature with the head of a falcon, and then disappeared
in a wink.
Some time later, as my son and I returned from the cabin after
spending the night in the woods because the house was so crowded
with people, we saw a small hooded figure--gray and
translucent--come gliding across the porch and down the deck about
two hundred feet ahead of us, then dart off into the woods.
Meanwhile, the filmmaker and his wife experienced such a burst of
heat in their bed that they jumped out of it, thinking that it was
on fire. When my son and I arrived in the house, they were standing
there in consternation, trying to understand what had happened.
There were two things involved, I believe: suggestion and
technology. The transformation of the creature was probably
accomplished with masterful suggestion of a kind we can hardly
imagine, but which is related to hypnosis. The disappearance,
however, must have been carried out via the use of a device that
affected local gravity in such a way that it bent light around it
while the creature remained concealed inside.
There was a cost, though: the device also enclosed the heat that it
was generating, and when the being finally reduced power, he
released a lot of that heat, which is why the filmmaker felt it, and
why we could see the creature, but as if it was translucent.
Now, these drones exhibit no such cloaking. In fact, they are,
collectively and by far the clearest UFO pictures ever made. Could
it be that they belong to somebody who possesses advanced means of
propulsion, but not invisibility technology, or that they are simply
too large for that technology to work? Whatever the answer, they
represent a fundamental and material change in the whole UFO
On March 30, I published a journal called Are They Coming and If So
What Do We Do in which I said,
"It is possible that the visitors
are about to show up. I am not saying that this will happen, but
only that this is a time when it could happen, and there are
some indications that it may be about to happen."
I then discussed the reasons why this
might be about to take place, and suggested that, if it was
happening, there would be more developments soon.
It is possible that the drones are the "more developments" and that
our response to them is being carefully observed. In a way, that's
why I'm writing this. It is an attempt to respond rationally and on
all levels available to me--accepting them as a possible human hoax,
as possible human secret craft, as something constructed by known
alien forms or possibly new alien forms, and as something attempting
to hide in plain sight by subtly suggesting itself as a special
effect. This about covers the waterfront regarding what the objects
might be. As to what they might be doing, that's another matter
The pictures offered by Chad and Mr. Smith are small objects,
probably no more than thirty to fifty feet across. The Maine photos
are obvious fakes, made with Photoshop. I could have made them
myself. The video of the prototype is a CGI fake, a nice one and a
reminder of how easy this is to do. As I said, I am as yet unsure
about the Big Basin photos.
What is interesting about all this is the blizzard of fakes and real
images involved, almost as if somebody is trying hard to obscure the
truth, or rather, to hide it in a maze of confusion and thus defuse
its impact. This would suggest to me a sort of social control at
work, or even an organized operation.
Some years ago, I wrote a short story called "The Open Doors," which
is available to Unknowncountry.com subscribers that explores the
last days of a scientist called John Von Neumann, called by
the press of his time "the smartest man alive." He died of liver
cancer, in great terror.
I was told by General Arthur Exon that Dr. Von Neumann
had been an important part of the scientific steering committee that
worked on the alien question, and that he had come up with a warning
based on his understanding of quantum physics, which was one of the
underlying reasons that the US has so adamantly refused to admit
that the aliens are real.
I called my story "The Open Doors," because, by reading Dr. Von
Neumann's work on the quantum perception problem, I figured out the
nature of his warning. I was also aware of this warning from another
direction. When Lyndon Johnson was president and Hubert Humphrey was
vice president, a briefing was offered to the president on the UFO
subject. He was not interested, but Humphrey was given a document,
probably similar to
the Brookings Report that
postulates that the discovery of aliens would be a terrific shock to
mankind. However, Humphrey would also have been told that they were
already here, and that, in the absence of some sort of acceptance
'tripwire' being triggered on our part, they might be literally
unable to fully interact with us.
I believe that Dr. Von Neumann thought that this tripwire would be
official recognition, and that, if it happened, it would open a door
onto an unknown world that we could never again close. This is why
Humphrey, on reading what he had been given, commented that its
release would have "unpredictable consequences" and the Johnson
Administration took no further interest in the UFO phenomenon.
In its simplest form, the quantum perception problem asks the
question, does the observer's presence mediate reality? In other
words, if nobody is there to see it, is there anything there to be
seen? And, if so, does our general disbelief in aliens, carefully
cultivated by our government, literally act as a wall that they
cannot scale without expending enormous resources in energy?
Probably, nobody knows the answer to that question, which cannot be
resolved unless we accept the alien presence--but if we do that and
we don't like what we see, then what?
The reason for the secrecy--one of them, anyway--revolves around the
unanswerability of that question. Even if Von Neumann's suggestion
was only wild speculation, because we can never close the door once
it is open, we dare not test his hypothesis by officially admitting
that aliens are real and that they are here. This is why I know that
all disclosure projects are doomed from the start. The government
can't answer the question of whether or not official disclosure will
be the tripwire that brings aliens pouring into our lives without
doing it, and they are not going to do it without knowing what might
However, if Von Neumann was right and our refusal to acknowledge the
aliens --if that's what they are-- as real IS what is keeping them
back, then the whole
abduction phenomena are explained as a
sort of military operation designed to bypass official denial by
creating so many firsthand witnesses that they themselves eventually
become the tripwire, and the door opens despite government denial.
And this could be the explanation for the drones. The utter clarity
with which we are seeing them means that whoever has been banging
against the wall of human perception has made a breakthrough. These
photos are clear because so many of us now accept the aliens as real
that they can engage in much more substantial penetrations of our
reality than ever before, and no matter official denial. If this is
true, then this journal, along with all the other material that has
been posted, will be regarded as acknowledgment of a communication,
and there will be a further response of some kind. It will be
clearer and more definite than what we have seen so far, possibly
even something that cannot be denied. We shall see.
If the drones are an elaborate hoax, they could have appeared as
part of an attempt to undo the damage that has been caused by the
UFO wave that began with the United Airline Terminal UFO over O'Hare
Airport last year. This 'damage' would be increasing public
conviction that UFOs are real, and the purpose of the drones would
be to lure investigators into believing the hoax, then reveal it and
make them out as fools in the media.
The drones have received little general media attention. Effectively
none. But, if they are a hoax, its revelation will get widespread
coverage. If there is a partial hoax involved, such as the famous
'Doug and Dave' crop circle hoax, then the hoax part of it will be
lovingly featured throughout the media, and the reality thus
If it's not a hoax but a communication, we might well hear more
soon, and it will not be video or more pictures of the drones.
That's been done. No, if it is a real communication, a new note will
I would suggest you stay tuned.

In my last journal entry, I speculated
about the possible meaning of the extraordinary "drone" photos that
have recently surfaced. Now a new witness has appeared, "Isaac," who
claims to have worked on part of a project that involved the use in
partnership of alien technology to create these remarkable devices.
But is this true? If it is, then it is obviously very important.
As I have been doing all along, I am going to reserve judgment for
now about whether or not the material he has deposited--and for that
matter, the whole production of witness testimony and pictures--is a
hoax or not. That is not to say that I'm not investigating. I
certainly am investigating. But for now, I am going to address the
larger issues that arise if we assume that it is NOT a hoax. By this
I mean that the witnesses are genuine, the pictures are real, and
the material deposited by "Isaac" is authentic.
If it is, then I would say that that a test is under way of our
ability to respond in a useful and coherent manner to what is being
revealed, and I would like to begin by saying that I have always
understood that one of the primary reasons for the secrecy has been
that, if the superb technology of the aliens was revealed publicly
before its principles were understood, we risked a profound cultural
descent, that would result from our focusing ourselves on their
greater achievements, and becoming supplicants.
This would mean that we would not be a resource but a burden, and
there is no reason to expend all the time, wealth, thought and
emotion that are necessary to make contact work, if the only outcome
is going to be a failure like this. Therefore, a three-pronged
effort was made to engage with us without intervening in a way that
would bruise our sense of independence and our self-worth.
The first part of this was the creation
of a theater in the sky, that has been ongoing now for many years,
and has served to make us aware of the possibility that strangers
may be here. The second part was the close encounter phenomenon,
which was designed to acclimate us to new ways of thinking and to a
culture very different from our own, that arises out of a mind that
does not work like the human mind.
This is the part that bleeds off into the darkness of alien
abduction, cattle mutilations, and all of that material. Certainly,
our visitors are not angels. Indeed, despite their very different
minds, they are in some ways quite familiar.
To understand what I am saying here, imagine what might happen if we
discovered another planet with intelligent creatures living on it
who had never encountered the outside world.
anthropologists would demand that we remain hidden so that we would
not ruin their chances of studying the local culture.
biologists would demand everything from blood to sexual material.
The creatures would be abducted, studied and tagged, just as we do
to lions on the wild, and the visitors apparently do to us.
there would be exploitation, both officially sanctioned and not so
In other words, what we are experiencing at the hands of the
visitors is almost a blueprint for what we would almost inevitably
do if we were the star-faring species and we were involving
ourselves with creatures from another world.
I might also add that really interacting with them would probably be
orders of magnitude more difficult than it is for us to interact
with dolphins in any way that actually means something on their
terms, not ours. We can teach them to play ball and nuzzle tourists,
but we cannot speak a word of dolphin. It might be, though, with the
precious treasure of another intelligent species, we would want very
much to interact with them on terms that would be meaningful to us
both, and not just toy with them.
This brings me to
Project Caret, and, I am sure,
other such projects, and the third and reconciling side of my little
triad of contact.
This third part is a kind of melding of the other two, which
involves direct contact with the most advanced human institutions
available that could also be counted on to keep a secret. Thus large
scientific institutions such as universities have been left out of
this equation, while defense contractors and military elements are
The secrecy was not, and has never been, evil or greedy or arrogant
in any way. It has been necessary to preserve us as free and
independent beings. It has been abused by those among the visitors
who have sought to exploit us, also, I would assume. I can only
surmise that the appearance of the drones, and now the release of
materials by Isaac, is a new step in the ongoing experiment that we
call contact. It has happened now because we have taken a number of
steps forward, and are no longer seeing things in quite as
provincial a manner as before. We can know that the visitors are
real and that they have been in contact with elements of our society
for some time, without being confused or deranged by this knowledge.
It is possible that this experiment will involve the general media
as well. If so, then it is to be hoped that they approach the
situation with the same calm and open-minded attitude that will be
exhibited on Coast to Coast, Earthfiles and Unknowncountry, and that
the general public will take their cue from you, the members of the
public who are already aware of what is really unfolding here, and
not from the various hysterics and egoists who will emerge to
promote one myth or another.
The visitors are not demons. They are not angels. They have a
complex living history just like we do.
They are part of a vast and
ancient web which is intelligence in the universe, and I think that
this event may signal that it is time for us to attempt another step
in the direction of joining ourselves to this great resonance. And
none too soon. We need clearance to pass many outsider technologies
into the general population, because ways can undoubtedly be found
to use them on behalf of the whole species and, ultimately, all the
I have learned from firsthand observation just how wonderfully
clever the human being is, and how very capable we are of proceeding
another step down this road. Of course it will be difficult. It's
hard to walk at first, and our weakness has to be respected along
with our strength. Our weaknesses are all quite familiar. There are
seven of them, and all seven will be playing their roles in our
attempt to weave conscious awareness into the web of contact that
already penetrates our society on many, many different levels.
But also, our virtues of faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice,
temperance and, above all, prudence must be brought to bear by us
with care, dignity and determination. We have lived with the
visitors among us for a long time. The next step is perhaps for the
general population to know that they are here, and for the open
scientific culture to begin to take command of some of the
technologies that have been made available to us.
It is, at any rate, a goal worthy of hope and prayer, for, if it
were to unfold in this way at this time, our children's children
will see this as the age of heroes, when they look back on our
memory from their vantage in the stars.
All well and good. In my next journal entry on this subject, absent
intervening events, I will deal with the possibility that there are
one or more hoaxes involved. But it won't come right away. It takes
time for investigations like this to proceed, given the care that is

- Are They Real, and What Do We Do?
Friday June 29th,
There isn't any serious doubt at this
point that people are observing strange objects in the sky, most
often near certain air force bases. There is also a plethora of
computer graphics animations appearing on various video websites. So
far, all of this video consists of animations and is not real.
However, the witness reports, such as the one featured on this
week's Dreamland, are almost certainly real, and some of the
photographs are real, too, quite possibly all of the ones that we
and Linda Moulton Howe have posted.
This could be human technology, pure and simple. Perhaps a much more
potent expression of electrohydrodynamic propulsion has been
deployed and is being tested. There is a very high demand within the
intelligence community for low-level, close in monitoring systems
that are undetectable, so certainly such technologies are being
worked on with high priority.
And then there is the matter of the "Isaac X" posting, which has
been so violently attacked by UFO researchers.
Maybe it is a hoax and maybe not, but there is one element of it
that isn't a hoax, and this element is of extraordinary value, as
you will see.
For this reason, the hoax issue isn't all that important when it
comes to this material. Even if Isaac created it entirely out of his
imagination, this material is still real, and it is pure gold.
He says on the website he has created for this material:
something akin to a language, that could quite literally execute
itself, at least in the presence of a very specific type of field.
The language, a term I am still using very loosely, is a system of
symbols (which does admittedly very much resemble a written
language) along with geometric forms and patterns that fit together
to form diagrams that are themselves functional. Once they are
drawn, so to speak, on a suitable surface made of a suitable
material and in the presence of a certain type of field, they
immediately begin performing the desired tasks."
This is correct, and not only that, one of the materials on which
these imprints will work is the human brain, and one of the fields
that will activate the forms is the electromagnetic field of a
Now, it is VERY important to realize something before I go on, and
to take it into your mind and heart: EVEN IF the entire Isaac
production is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be a hoax, and
that may happen, the statement above is STILL true.
How would a true statement come into a hoax? Quite simply, because
the hoaxer is probably a close encounter witness himself, probably
in amnesia about his encounters and very disturbed by them, and has
dropped information from those encounters into his hoax without even
Understand, my gut feeling is that the Isaac material is real. The
main objections to it are not convincing, and I will detail why not
later in this journal, for those who are interested.
But, even if a hoax is proven, please don't throw out the baby with
the bathwater, because we all have a chance now to make a major
advance, and, for those of us who work hard and effectively, to
transform ourselves in fundamental ways.
Always remember this: the visitors have said what is on offer to us.
Phillip Corso was told, in no uncertain terms, "a new world, if you
can take it." This means that we must wrest it out of the hands of
the grays, and also be able to bear it. And I warn you, the more
parts of yourself you don't like, the harder the light that it
brings will be to endure, because that light drives consciousness
deep into the parts of ourselves of which we dare not even speak.
I warn you, but I also seek to tempt you ahead. We can remake our
world. The equipment has already been installed. All we need now to
do is turn it on.
Let me offer two instances of how the patterning described above
works in a human brain. The first of these involves a man called
Jose Garcia. I don't believe that this case is referenced on the
internet. This is not the Jose Garcia associated with
Command material, but a simple farmer in Mexico who had an unusual
A tall man walked up to him in his field one day and showed him a
set of symbols, and told him to memorize them, then visualize them
while planting his crops. He did this, and after that the crops
began growing to record size. The case briefly appeared in Texas
papers, and was privately investigated by a Texas sheriff. I assume
that it is documented somewhere, but I cannot find it. I'm grateful
to one of the people who have worked on this case with me for
bringing it up.
A second data point involves long-time close encounter witness Jim
Sparks. He recounts an instance of being made to trace a letter "E"
when in the presence of a gray, and experiencing unusual physical
sensations as he did so. He was told that he was being taught a
What is happening now is that this skill is being offered on a
gigantic scale, and it is possible for us to take advantage of it.
First, we have been show, in the drones, some of the equipment that
can be constructed using it. What they do, we do not yet know, but I
have a thought that some of them, at least, are used in making crop
Understand, I cannot prove any of this, and it is not my intention
to do that. It is my intention to continue on the road I've been on
most of my life, that stretches into the unknown and arises out of
my soul's old long time.
We are all on this road, and to demand the wrong sort of
explanations--concrete proof, for example, that none of this is a
hoax--is to stand fast instead of continuing the journey. No risk,
That said, I think that the two fragile indications I have described
above, plus Isaac's message, suggest that there may already be a set
of patterns, in the form of the crop circles, that we can apply to
the material of our brains by memorizing the images and calling them
to mind when we need them.
Understand, I have no idea how this will work or even if it will
work. But I sense that it will, and that we need to do it, and that
by doing so we will create a technology within ourselves that will
reconnect us with powerful energies that are intrinsic to the earth,
and enable us to reunite with our planet in a journey of healing
that might just save this species.
The program is simple enough. It involves going back to images of
the early crop circles, and methodically memorizing them and
bringing them to mind during mediation and in our everyday lives,
and seeing what, if anything, happens.
Obviously, some of the circles we do this with will be authentic and
others fake. It isn't important. The fake ones simply won't work and
will end up being forgotten.
I believe that the circles are placed near ancient sites of power
because these are the fountainheads of whatever energy it is that we
seek to reconnect with. Ancient man probably couldn't do as much
with these energies as we will be able to, but he knew they were
there, and that's why he clustered his places of worship around
Most of you might go to a
crop circle website or open a book and try
this once or twice. Nothing will happen and you'll forget about it.
Or you'll wait passively for it to "do" something to you and it
won't, and you'll move on.
I know you will do this because I am liable to do it, too. When I
first started meditating nearly forty years ago, it felt useless.
Now, however, it is the foundation of a gigantic second life that
penetrates into all sorts of realms. Had I not been meditating, the
visitors would never even have found me.
So, I urge you to stay with this new practice. In our subscriber
section, I am going to begin a series of sample meditations on the
circles, and go on with it as best I am able.
In our consciousness, fact and imagination are two different things.
We say, "it was just imagination" to dismiss something.
The visitors have a different view of this. They say that
imagination creates fact, and it is out of this more correct
understanding of reality that their evolution of power forms has
Because we have not recognized the degree to which the mind actually
mediates reality, we are making two mistakes, and one of the reasons
that I think that the Isaac material is real is that it very subtly
reflects one of these mistakes, which is that the universe is
founded on a group of facts that we must discover in order to
understand how it works.
In reality, the universe that we live in is founded on the human
mind, and our imagination governs the laws of existence as we
The mistake that was made by the Isaac scientists was to assume
that, if only the understood the principles behind the equipment
they possessed, they could use it. This isn't completely impossible,
but a much more elegant solution is to work backward from what we
see the equipment doing, and use our imaginations to determine how
something might do that. This way, we adapt our vision of the
universe to our understanding of it, rather than slowly and
painfully entering somebody else's vision and contorting our own
imagination to fit it.
I know that this sounds esoteric, but it actually isn't. In fact, if
you want to explore it more deeply, you can turn to the cover story
on this week's New Scientist (June 30-July 6, 2007) and read the
article "How the Universe Got Its Laws and Our Surprising Role in
I digress in this way to offer some rationale for why using the crop
circles in the manner I describe above will work. How it will work,
of what our minds will do to enable it to work I don't know. But,
for some of us, it will bring changes that will be in the direction
of greater power over ourselves and our world.
We are moving from the age of Pisces to that of Aquarius. The coming
of Christ announced Pisces, which is why he is symbolized by the
fish. Now, Aquarius has no specific messenger. Aquarius pours out
the water in which the fish swam.
In the real world, that water was the earth and the fish is us. The
pouring out of the water is the earth becoming unable to support us.
Now the fish is left on the dry, hot land. His fish body is not
equipped to live here--and that is literally true. Earth is becoming
inhospitable. It will not be long before many, many of us die here.
Some say, 'we must stop global warming.' Others that it isn't
happening. Still others want it to happen because they believe it
will bring about their ascent into heaven.
To see how best to do that, we need to examine the fate of a fish
out of water, because that's what we presently are. In the distant
past, living creatures crept onto the land by inches, over millions
of years, evolving with infinite slowness.
We have to do it in a single generation. And we can, because we have
a tool that the creatures of the past lacked: the mind.
The communication that has come to us in the context of this recent
sighting group is phenomenal. It is powerful. It is easy to use.
Now I would like to turn to the various objections to the Isaac
material. To me, this is not very important, because the useful
information has appeared whether a hoax was involved or not.
One objection is that there are no classification stamps or
notations on the document. However, I have seen formerly sensitive
documents that were prepared for upper management at one agency or
another that were not visibly classified at all. This was done so
that, if they got away, there could be deniability.
Another is that the document is too clear and precise to have been
created via computer in 1986. This isn't true, either. There were
plenty of systems around that could do it. They were not in home
computers, but they could certainly create this document.
A third is that this is all a viral marketing program for
Transformers or the latest Halo game or something. Maybe if the
production just consisted of pictures and documents, a case could be
made for that, but there are now too many witnesses on tape. Are we
to believe that a viral marketing campaign has also hired actors to
fool Linda Howe?
Whatever this is, it isn't that.
