- Jim Sparks, Abductee, 1996
Fort Myers Beach, Florida, USA
In 1995, I met a man named Jim Sparks who says he has had
completely conscious encounters with,
"small, grey, drone worker
types; taller true aliens, or supervisors; and tall reptoids with
big, human-shaped bodies covered with scaly, reptile skin".
sees himself as an interpreter or translator - or at least an
elementary grade student in an alien "school". He says he has been
forced to learn English letter and number equivalents to alien
Jim Sparks permitted me to tape-record hours of our discussions
about his experiences. This chapter emerged from those conversations
and his efforts to visualize and write down what has happened for
his own book manuscript.1
After eight years "of being close enough to breathe their
rotten-egg-smelling skin", Sparks thinks he has some insights into
the alien agenda, but admits he has "a thousand more questions than
answers". He is frustrated that he cannot prove his contacts with
Sparks was born to Italian parents on November 15, 1954. The formal
name on his birth certificate is Vincent Sparacino. He grew up in
southern Florida, graduated from high school and spent a couple of
years in a local college studying real estate. He moved on to
Houston, Texas, in 1979, and then to North Carolina where he
purchased raw land and divided lots for housing construction-but
always felt a strong need to preserve the trees at his developments.
Happy, married and thriving, by 1988 at age thirty-four, Sparks
suddenly came face to face with other beings from other worlds.
Sparks at first thought he had lost his mind. He says he was kept
totally conscious through most of the interactions, including the
agony of being "pulled" from his bed at night to a craft.
"I’m usually pulled the same way,
which I call the ’hard way’, and it’s completely physical. My
whole body is taken. The first thing I hear is a low-pitched,
whirling sound in my head, like a whip going around in the air.
This is usually after I go to bed and am asleep. Normally for
me, it’s 3.30 am in the early morning. I don’t know why. I wake
up from my natural sleep, and then there’s the whirling
sensation in the pit of my stomach and it feels like it’s coming
up into my chest.
When it gets up to my heart area, my heart
starts beating fast, just racing in my head, and the whirling
sound starts picking up rpm and is tremendously loud. It starts
low and rises in pitch and screams in your head. The fear is
like you’re going to die. Your heart is racing a million miles
an hour and then you get this acceleration feeling, but I always
feel like I’m being pulled down; I never feel like I’m being
pulled up. It’s like I go down a rollercoaster, only a hundred
times faster, and whoom-you black out and you’re there, wherever
it is you’re going to be, usually on board a craft."
Sparks told me why he thinks that most
of the time he is actually "pulled" physically from bed and
literally moved through the walls or ceiling as other abductees have
"It’s their technology. I know
aliens rely heavily on a created field. This field produces
several things: the ability to be invisible, the ability to work
in one dimension and be partially in another, and the ability to
move us poor humans through solid matter.
"How exactly it works, I don’t know. But I know it’s a field.
When the field is in action, you can feel it, you can sense it;
you almost feel like you are a magnet or static electricity. It
takes a wall as you would normally see it and makes it
transparent. You walk right through it. So, it’s a field that
somehow separates molecules, changes your physiology when you’re
I asked Sparks if he has been awake and
conscious while actually seeing doors and walls become transparent.
"Only rarely. And it freaked me out.
Most of the time I black out before that moment and then I’m on
board the craft. I know this all sounds weird as hell, but I’m
doing the best I can under very bizarre circumstances not to be
scared to death, not to be intimidated, and to figure out what
these bastards are up to. And I know that their technology
renders different ways of transport, and one is the ’hard way’
and I’m there in the flesh, not out of body!"
In early 1995, Jim Sparks had an
abduction experience that changed him forever, he says, and left him
obsessed with saving the rainforests and stopping the human slashing
and burning-by-fire that is destroying them. This experience,
excerpted here with Jim’s permission, is puzzling because yet
another alien type is introduced. These reptilian entities also
provoke questions about a possible connection to viper references in
Enoch of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Genesis in
Jim Sparks’s encounter with reptilian humanoids, their warning and
possible agenda, follows:
"The pulling started the usual way
with a low-pitched, whirling sound-only this time, it didn’t
speed up as fast or get as loud and it was more gentle. I was
paralyzed again, but I momentarily regained consciousness before
the final transport sequence was complete and I could see where
I was going. That was a first!
"As my eyes opened, I saw that I was at least a thousand feet
above the ground and slowly descending. Below me was an
abandoned carnival park. I was floating over a large,
old-fashioned wooden rollercoaster and I wasn’t scared! I was
calm and relaxed, and the ride was so gentle I was actually
"When I was twenty or thirty feet from the ground, I started to
slowly rock back and forth several times like a pendulum-almost
like I was being guided to a target and this was the final
adjustment. Then I saw the profiles of about a dozen large
creatures standing in a semi-circle. Although it was night, I
could make out the shapes of their body size-and they were
large, even by human standards. A few inches front the ground, I
"As I began to regain consciousness, I was standing and heard
telepathically, loud and clear:
’We would have given it to you, but we knew it wouldn’t
have meant anything unless you earned it. It was the only
way you could possibly understand what you have been a part
of and what you have to do.’
"I now know the ’it’ was knowledge. I was clear-headed and
wide-awake conscious. There were twelve large, humanoid
creatures standing in almost a complete circle in which I was a
part. The creatures appeared to be at least six feet tall. All
of them had their heads turned towards the alien who was
standing to my immediate left.
"The only apparent light source was on the face of this
creature, like a hologram of a human face superimposed and
glowing over the alien’s face [Howe’s emphasis]. It was
radiating light, and this was done to disguise his true
appearance. He had done this to make me feel less apprehensive.
The creatures didn’t take into consideration that as this
holographic face spoke and moved its lips, there was no audible
"The voice being communicated telepathically was out of sync
with the lips! Plus, the face was obviously a hologram because
it was slightly off centre from the body. But it worked,
nonetheless, because I wasn’t scared.
"As the reptoids transmitted telepathically, I noticed that each
alien seemed to be concentrating its thoughts to the creature on
my left. One thing for sure: they were of one mind, and it said:
’There are some things you need to understand. Yes, it’s true
that we have been in contact with your government leaders and
heads of power. It is also true that
agreements have been made
and kept secret from your people. It is also true that, in the
past, some of your people have lost their lives or have been
badly hurt to protect this secret. Our hands had no part in
’We contacted your leaders because your planet is in grave
trouble. Your leaders said the vast majority of your population
wasn’t ready for anything like us yet, so we made time
agreements with your leaders as to when your people would be
made aware of our presence. This part of the agreement has not
at all been kept.
’It was also agreed that, in the
meantime, steps would be taken to correct the environmental
condition of your planet with our advice and technology. We
say advice, because we respect the fact that this is
your planet, not ours. Your government also broke this
"I felt an awful emotion of abandonment from these aliens. They
are different. I never sensed true emotion from the other aliens
before. But the feeling wasn’t at all good. It felt like great
loss. I couldn’t help asking, ’You aren’t giving up on us, are
"There was a long pause of silence and I had a strong feeling of
tremendous loss. So I asked again, ’Well, are you?’ There was
another long pause.
’No. We are now concentrating
our energy on the average person. Your air and your water
are contaminated. Your forests, jungles, trees and plant
life are dying. There are several breaks in your food chain.
You have an amount of nuclear and biological weapons which
include nuclear and biological contamination. Your planet is
overpopulated. Warning: It is almost to the point of being
too late unless your people act now. There are better ways
of deriving your energy and food needs without causing your
planet any damage. Those in power are aware of this and have
the capability to put these methods into worldwide use.’
"I asked, ’Why aren’t we doing it now?’ There was silence, and
the whole thing was so strange because I could see that the
whole group was thinking and speaking its mind at one time. It
felt good because I was a participant in an honest-to-goodness
meeting! The best part was that for the first time I was getting
direct answers to my questions.
’Why aren’t we putting these new
methods into use now?’
’Those in power view it
[technology for clean energy and abundant food] as a
military and security threat.’
"Then I got angry as hell and said,
’You mean to tell me our
people in power have the ability to save and better this planet
and they aren’t doing it?!’ The thought that technology was
being held back from the public because of paranoia and greed
outraged me, and the aliens saw my anger. But was it true?
"What do you mean?"
’Complete amnesty. To those in power, the governments and the
leaders who have been suppressing the truth. They can’t be held
liable for any past wrong deeds. It is the only way these
leaders can come forward with the truth. It is necessary
that you do this in order to work together and survive.’
"There was silence for a while, as if they wanted me to think
about what was just said. This was a hard truth to swallow. If
anybody had a good reason to hate their government for covering
up this information, it was me and others like me. Most
abductees still consider themselves victims who constantly
suffer ridicule. When your own government’s policy is to say
’You’re just plain crazy’, it only deepens the pain.
"But this is a time when intelligence should rule over emotions.
So I asked, ’How do I fit in all this? What can I possibly do?’
’What you are doing already. We
will share much more knowledge with you in the future.
Although you understand a lot, we will show you much more.
Continue to work with people that come to you. We are aware
of the small groups that are forming around the world. These
are people who are prepared to learn and we consider them
the core. Most important is the condition of your planet.
The first step in solving this serious problem is amnesty.
We have advice. You will receive more knowledge in the near
"As this was going on, it started to rain. I mean, it was
pouring! The creatures didn’t even budge or try to get out from
under it. They didn’t have to: we weren’t getting wet. Although
we were standing completely outdoors with no roof, not one drop
of rain touched us. I guess we were being protected by some sort
of electric field. I could hear drops as they fell, but there
was a clear, detectable line [around us] between rainfall and no
Then they said:
’It’s time to go.’
"A thought flashed into my mind.
’Wait, please! I have a
request. I want to see what you look like.’ I’ll never forget
their response as long as I live:
’It will strike fear in your
"I answered, ’It won’t scare me so much if you don’t stand there
and stare at me. It would help if you would just wave at me.
Just don’t stare. Promise me you’ll wave.’
"Now I can’t believe how stupid that request was. I had, in the
flesh, face to face, probably some of the most intelligent
creatures from the far reaches of the galaxy, with answers that
have been plaguing mankind since the dawn of time. And what did
I say? ’Could you wave at me?’
"The strangest thing started to take place. A spinning white
light with a hint of green began to radiate over their faces and
upper bodies, all dozen of them. The intensity of the light
slowly got brighter and it was radiating from no direct or
detectable source. I could see they were huge. Their upper torso
was strong, with huge shoulders and a thick, strong neck like
football linebackers. As the light became brighter and details
clearer, fear and shock zapped through me.
"I said, ’You have scales!’ Their faces looked like a cross
between a lizard and a snake - nothing at all like the
guys. Their eyes were small like ours, only diamond-shaped, and
the pupils were a red colour. Their heads were in normal
proportion with their bodies, but bigger than ours. The skull
looked like their brains stuck out over their foreheads, covered
by skin. This feature was slightly different among all dozen of
"I said in a scared whimper, ’You promised to wave.’ And each
and every one of them slowly lifted their arms and waved in
front of their faces. Their hands were huge with thick,
club-like fingers, too thick to work fine instruments. But you
have to keep in mind that their technology is thought-activated.
"I stood there and stared at them for a while in silence,
absorbing this spectacular sight. Their message kept running
through my mind. I was sure that my country has been involved
with aliens. Most Americans believe there’s been a cover-up. But
what really got to me was the message about the poor condition
of our planet! Then I felt the acceleration pull and blacked
"I understood better their nature and agenda. They are neither
benevolent nor evil. They have been among us in secret for
thousands of years, maybe longer. But the length of time isn’t
as much the issue as why they have been among us. I believe they
have been farming us for raw materials.
"We humans have been a self-perpetuating crop, a crop that
doesn’t need much tending and continues to reproduce, at least
up to now and all the Earth problems. Thank goodness they don’t
kill us; they just use us. This system has worked well for the
aliens for a long time. But now there’s a problem and their
investment is in trouble. They have spent a lot of time, travel
and effort to farm us. But we are on an almost irreversible path
of self-destruction. Nuclear and biological weapons and their
waste have polluted the air, land and water. Forests, jungles
and trees are being cut down or are dying. Now there are
breakdowns in the food chain and the rest of the food chain is
contaminated. Over-population, disease and viruses beyond our
grasp, with new and more complicated illnesses cropping up every
day. These are just a few of the problems we humans have
"Most of us are blind or numb to this reality because we can
still go to the grocer and buy food. We can go to work and back
and not see this death and dying. All seems almost normal. But
if we environmentally destroy ourselves, the aliens still have
an excellent insurance policy. They’ve been collecting seeds
from plants, animals and humans. Through semen and ova
extraction, the aliens can start us, or other Earth life, all
over again, here or somewhere else."
Echoing the Jim Sparks experience, the major concern expressed
by abductee Anna Hayes in
Voyagers, The Sleeping Abductees
competition and conflict among non-human intelligences over
Earth life and their employment of the same sophisticated
technologies to manipulate, deceive and inspire.
"Just as the original creators of the human prototype desired to
see the fulfillment of our species as guardians of the Earth,
there also exist forces of great power that do not wish this
plan to succeed. If humans are able to fulfill their evolutionary
blueprint, the Earth and many other reality fields will no
longer be free for exploitation."
Hayes stressed that if humans had truth
about their extraterrestrial genetic connection and understood how
many outsiders have taken advantage of human ignorance and used
sophisticated technologies to manipulate and deceive for their gain,
the human family could change and evolve in strength, not weakness.
In conversation, she told me:
"Both negative and positive agendas
are producing hybrids and androids, and both sides are
emphasizing the need to save the Earth’s environment for their
various vested interests. Guardian aliens are promoting healing
the planet, but the negative groups are also trying to ’help the
planet’ by offering new technologies so they can have a clean
place to take over. I understand the negative ones have had time
agreements with the US Government about introducing their
species to humans.
"Lately, I think the negative ones
have told the government they will introduce themselves to the
public if the government does not. So, the government is
supposedly setting the stage to introduce the negative ones, and
the negative aliens are planning to help the government ’clear
its reputation’ by staging false events with holographic
inserts. Human minds won’t be able to tell what’s real and
Whatever we ultimately learn about the
truth in these highly strange cases in which dire warnings are given
to humans about the Earth’s future, the fact is that, by the fall of
1997, Jim Sparks was still pretty much in the same place he had been
after the carnival park meeting. He had no specific instructions
about how to carry out his "mission" to save the environment and to
move the US Government towards amnesty for all military and
intelligence people who had signed oaths of secrecy about
However, Sparks had a night-time visitation by one of the little
grey "drones". He said he woke up and was conscious of "the little
guy" standing at the foot of his bed. Then he got a clear mental
picture of Rome burning and then a rainforest burning, along with
the strong telepathic communication, "You must put out the fire!"
Jim is confused about the association between
Rome burning and the
rainforest destruction, but says he wants to do something to save
"Linda, I need to get better known
in order to have influence. I want to get to a situation where I
can speak publicly so I can talk about the rainforest problems
and other issues facing the Earth’s environment."
But meanwhile, Jim, every second of
every day, the forests are on fire.
So what is being accomplished? Have you
contacted groups that are already trying to save the rainforests and
joined up with them?
"No. I have always cared about what
happens to the Earth, but I’ve never got myself involved with
any groups. This is something new to me. What am I going to say?
I’m being advised by ETs?!"
What details did the reptoids give about
air and water damage?
"They didn’t give me exact details.
They told me that we’ve got problems with the air and water and
food chain. I was told [in March 1995] that we’ve got about a
decade to turn this thing around. Not that the world will end.
But there will be problems in reversing all the damage. And the
reptoids said someone in political power already has this
knowledge and technology and [they] are hoarding it for security
and defense reasons. And probably for greed, too.
Black Budget Boys aren’t coming forth with the truth
because their asses are on the line. They’ve got all the secret
organizations out there who have taken advantage of this
knowledge while everything else goes to hell. That’s why the
amnesty thing makes sense. Then the BBB guys can tell the truth
finally about alien contact, getting alien technology, making
money from it, and even maiming and killing people to protect
that secret. With amnesty, they can come forward with the truth
and won’t be prosecuted."
Jim, if there is urgency, why would the
aliens go to you when you have no resources to make radical changes?
"Maybe it isn’t just Jim Sparks. It
could be a million other abductees, too, for all I know. Maybe
all of us are going to do something at the same time. It’s a
very complicated thing. I wish I had the power today to go down
to South America and Malaysia and snuff the fires out. I don’t.
I know there are organizations like Greenpeace and the Sierra
Club and Save the Rainforests - but have they stopped things,
Jim, what happens if there’s no change
in the status quo?
"I think the aliens want to do this
with our help. But if that doesn’t work, I think they are going
to intervene. They use a minimal amount of energy to get the
most work done. I think that if they can interact with
individuals on this planet, give advice, give technology, show
ways of doing things that are better for survival, they’ll do
But why? What’s in it for the aliens?
"The same thing they’ve been doing
with us for the past several thousand years.
"They farm us. They clone us. They
make organs from us, and all kinds of stuff. I’m not saying they
are wonderful, benevolent beings coming down here to save the
Earth. Bullshit! They have their own self-interests."
So, Jim, they want to preserve the Earth
so they can continue to harvest DNA from certain bloodlines?
"Yeah. I think the Earth will be
fine, eventually. But humans might not be able to live on it.
You need a certain percentage of oxygen to breathe."
You mean the aliens are trying to get
their ’crop’ to stop self-destructing, so they can keep harvesting
what they need.
"That’s right. And remember, Linda,
when this stuff started happening, I didn’t ask for it. And not
only did I not ask for it, I didn’t want anything to do with
