Serpo and the Twelve Space Travelers

One of my side interests besides the main topic in this blog is UFOs. I have been researching the UFO phenomena for about 30 years now and have read just about every book on the topic. About once every five years another hot UFO story hits the press and creates a massive buzz. If you remeber we had the following buzzes:

1. Roswell NM UFO Crash
2. Hypnotic Regression and UFO Abductions
3. Cattle Mutilations
4. MJ-12
5. The Face on Mars
6. Crop Circles and UFOs
7. Rods
8. Alien Autopsy
9. Area 51

and the list goes on and on. But, recently a new thread has emerged that may take the cake for the ultimate UFO story - Project Serpo.

Last November an anonymous poster on a UFO forum claimed to be a retired US Government employee who has decided to come out and release the story of Project Serpo - which states the following:
1. There were 2 UFO crashes in the late 1940s - not Roswell.
2. A surviving ET or EBE was found in the 2nd crash.
3. The EBE claimed to be from the Zeta-Reticuli star system (Betty and Barney Hill tie-in).
4. The EBE had a communicator and was able to negotiate a comm link between its home planet and Earth to setup an exchange with the US Government.
5. Twelve military trained specialists were exchanged with one EBE in 1965 and sent to Serpo - their home planet.
6. They stayed on the EBE's planet for 12 years and returned in 1978
7. Eight returned, 2 died on the planet and 4 stayed behind.
8. The EBE on Earth taught us some of their technology and language.
9. All members of the mission have since died (last one in 2002).
10. Journals, photos and de-briefings still exist about Serpo but are highly classified.

Don't believe it? Check out the Serpo Project online.

Here's a quote: "In 1965, we had an exchange program with the aliens. We carefully selected 12 military personel; ten men and two women. They were trained, vetted and carefully removed from the military system. The 12 were skilled in various specialities....The returnees were isolated from 1978 to 1984 at various military installations. The Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI) was responsible for their security and safety."

How Weird Can It Get?

You think you've seen it all? Take a look at this site that combines reality, myth, astral projection, UFOs...what else can mix into this! There are also some references to underground tunnels. If you don't remember - some time back there was a hubbub of news about residents in a New Mexico town hearing weird noises underground called the Taos hum. I have to admit it is very strange. Listen to it here. Could it be one of these machines?

OBEs and UFO Abductions

Just how close are alien abductions to out of body experiences? It seems like a very far fetched idea but don't be so sure. If you read much of the material from UFO abduction researchers such as John Mack, Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs you will start to get the feeling that many of the accounts have strikingly similar descriptions as OBEs.

Sometimes alleged abductees can break out of an abduction by shear force of will. This seems to be a clue of its non physical nature. Could there be other clues? Looking at the varied testimony of abductees, one gets the sense of commonality from report to report. One person stated that she was transported through her apartment wall. While others felt someone take them 'by hand' into waiting UFO's. Whitley Strieber, in his book 'Transformation', writes about his attempts at astral travel and the similarity of that experience to his abductions. Strieber writes, 'Of the 690 narratives sent to me by Communion and Transformation readers, only a few appear to support these present theories of abduction. The vast majority instead describe perceptions and experiences far stranger than any reported by mainstream abduction researchers.'

UFO researcher, R Grossinger, notes the inability of contactees to distinguish between the concrete or real and the psychic or hallucinatory. He posits that we may be dealing with both levels of reality thereby creating the current paradox of conflicting abduction testimonies.

Perhaps there is hope that some form of technology will be able to project your astral spirit effortlessly!

Proving Reincarnation?

Recently, I came across a book written in 1918 by Arthur Conan Doyle called "The New Revelation". It was his first book concerning his views on spiritualism and psychic phenomena. I found it fascinating to read, as much of the "proof" that he gathered and retold regarding "life" in the afterlife is still the same as what our psychics, mediums, and other metaphysical researchers of today tell us.

The fact is, we've been receiving proof of an afterlife for centuries. People throughout time have talked about angels, visitations from spirits, ghost entities, poltergeists, and communications from beyond. Stories of reincarnation continue to flood in, many from young children who wouldn't have had access, nor the understanding, to imagine and produce some of the tales they tell. With our modern medicine and life-saving medical equipment, the occurrences of near death experiences are being brought into the open more and more often. Really, how much more "proof" do we need?

And yet...skeptics still abound. What's more interesting is that various polls and statistics indicate that approximately 80% of the world's population believes in: life after death, that we have a soul and that it continues to exist after our "physical" deaths, that there is a Heaven, and that there is some sort of creator who watches over us. Out of the 20% left, about half are sitting on the fence and haven't made up their minds on what to believe. That leaves just 10% of human beings that we need to "convince and show proof too." In which case I need to ask this question... Why do we need to prove anything to this very small minority of people?

As I mentioned at the beginning, I had just finished reading Doyle's "The New Revelation" (you can read the entire book online at our website). While reading, I came across a very interesting statement that he made and one in which we should all think about:

"...we have reached a point where further proof is superfluous, and where the weight of disproof lies upon those who deny. The very people who clamour for proofs have, as a rule, never taken the trouble to examine the copious proofs which already exist..."

Isn't that an interesting remark made by someone almost a century ago? "...where the weight of disproof lies upon those who deny..." The proof has been all around us forever and most of us know this. And yet, here we are in the twenty-first century STILL trying to provide proof that there really is a spiritual realm. How about we put the burden of proof on the disbelievers and have them DISPROVE the existence of an afterlife? The reality is that they can't - there's too much evidence that indicates that there is more to the existence of "life" than our physcial senses can comprehend. Think about it. Has anyone shown you absolute proof that once you die, that's it, game over, nothing more exists? Yet, skeptics constantly spout this theory. Well, if this is true, where's the documented research and proof?

Is there life after death? The thousands upon thousands of thoroughly investigated and documented metaphysical cases point to the fact that there is definitely something beyond the material experiences of our physical realm. The believers in a spiritual afterlife really have nothing left to prove. It's time we turned the tables and required that the disbelievers prove to the majority of the world that life ends with our physical death.

Oh, by the way, good luck with that.

Dreams and WWII Reincarnation

Frankly, I find my dreams pretty interesting when I'm keeping track of them. I have discovered that if you keep a dream journal right by your bed at night you can easily recall many more of your dreams from that evening that you wouldn't normally remember. I can start writing about the last dream I had when waking up and that triggers an avalanche of additional ones.

I've had some odd dreams in my life with a constant theme. It seems that many of my dreams take place during WWII and I am a German soldier. Once when I was about 12 years old I had a vivid dream and remember being the in Africa Corps. I was lying on the back of a truck with a leg wound. To this day that dream seems like a reality. In another dream state I was hiding in Berlin trying to escape someone - but, I don't know who.

 Oddly, my father is an American WWII vet and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Now if you believe in reincarnation and karma - just what could it mean if his son was a reincarnated German soldier??? Here is another person's account of a WWII reincarnation that is truly amazing!

Children Remember Their Past Lives

I went to a lecture some time back where the guest speaker was a Dr. Robert Salt who is doing some research on the past life rememberences of children. It was quite fascinating and there was much more material out there than I knew about.

Dr. Salt noted that the one of the top pioneers in this field is Dr. Ian Stevenson who has done a significant amount of scientific work on the search for evidence of reincarnation. In his book Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation Dr. Stevenson relates the stories of children who can remember their past lives directly without hypnosis or past-life readings. It comes as stories from the children - e.g., remembering being a 25 year old mechanic and dying in a car crash. What is truly amazing is that the child's story continues with the names of the family and the location of the crash which become verifiable facts. Dr. Stevenson has compiled much of his research in India as well as many other countries. Definitely a must read for anyone!

Buzzing, Clicking, Vibrations in the Hypnagogic State

I know I can attest that when you are nearing what is called the 'Hypnagogic state' - the state of being between asleep and awake - you can start to feel odd vibrations and sound within your head. From all of the literature I have read on the subject of Astral Projection almost all sources state that this state is the crucial moment to leave the body.

Many times this is preceded by sounds in the head - a kind of buzzing sensation that feels oddly like someone is stretching a rubber band from your head and plucking it with a sudden feeling of falling back on your pillow. There are other cases where people hear a sound like chimes or bells just at the moment of unconsciousness. Others hear things like 'horrendous gushing sounds', 'weird ringing/buzzing noises', 'rushing to roaring up to sounds in the upper frequency scale like whistling', and 'very low hum, like a fog horn'.

William Buhlman in the link above says this is a normal state when you start entering a vibrational state just before an OBE. Erin Pavlina also notes this:

"When you feel that tingling sensation all through your body, and you hear the high pitched whine or ringing in your ears, that is what – I mean, I’m not a physicist – but what I believe is happening is you’re raising your vibration, you’re raising your frequency and you’re falling out of phase with your body. So, your spirit, your soul, your consciousness is pulling and separating away from your body, which is at a much lower frequency – a much lower density. 
Now, what generally happens from this place is people get scared or they get freaked out and they simply don’t move. This can also happen during sleep paralysis, which is where you wake up but you cannot move at all. You can see, but you can’t move.
This is actually the moment when you want to try to astral project, because what’s happening is when you feel the tingling and when you hear the ringing in your ears, you have already separated from your body."

Mantras and Projection

I have been doing a bit of research lately on how to induce an astral experience using mantras. Now, what are mantras you might ask? A mantra is a sacred verbal formula or combination of syllables that is repeated over and over again and which has religious or spiritual significance. The use of mantras derives from Hinduism, the word itself deriving from the Sanskrit word 'man' which means 'to think'. The sounds are supposed to mirror the source of all things and the original movements of creation. Although mantras often has devotional significance, they are also used as a meditative tool for developing concentration and removing the noise of day-to-day life within the mind. Many different sounds have been used as simple mantra including the word 'Buddha' to help keep the mind concentrated.

Tibetan monks used very elaborate and systemized techniques to invoke a OBE within the practitioner. Yoga, Tantric Buddhism and Cabalism all have forms of ritual chanting that scholars and witnesses say lead to systems of leaving the body. Cuno Muller described a mantra practice in Die andere Welt that describes a mantra method - a recitation of letter combinations: DC, CK, EF, EK, BF, CR, DR, EB, BD, BN and CU. The first set of 4 are repeated for 5 minutes and the second set of 7 recited for 10 minutes in a cycle of seven repetitions. The only problem with Muller's information is that the exact pronunciations are not given and it is assumed that the combinations are in Hebrew. So, the combination would be daleph-chaf/chaf-kaf/(e)fay/(e)kaf beth-fay/chaf-rash/daleph-rash/(e)beth/beth-daleph/beth-noon/chaf(u). What is exact pronunciation is a mystery.

Other mantras exist as well and there are many documented cases of strange and enlightening effects from this practice. Any comments on this would be appreciated.

The Power of Remote Viewing

An interesting article!

By Teresa Edwards
Remote Viewing is a psychical activity developed by various countries, including the Soviets, and used as a term by the CIA and the US military to define a psychic intelligence gathering activity. The origins of Remote Viewing are somewhat shrouded by its clandestine origins and there are various accounts.
In Remote Viewing, the viewer is given a target which is placed in a sealed envelope. This target is not physically identified or viewed by the subject, who attempts, nonetheless to connect with the object, in a protocol that somewhat resembles hypnotic induction. Remote Viewing embodies a procedure that attempts to induce the subject into an altered state of consciousness. Once induced, the subject then allegedly separates from his body and attempts to connect with the target through the “astral plane” or “ether.” In many ways this, component of Remote Viewing is almost identical to astral projection, which is being used to acquire information for intelligence operations.
Remote Viewing is said to have begun in 1970 in a CIA-funded project. Shortly afterwards, research began at the Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, California. At this time, researchers Russel Targ and Harold Puthoff worked intensely with New York artist, Ingo Swann, who has recently written Superpowers of the Human BioMind, which is available on the Internet, which includes his purported true account of the history of Remote Viewing.
The next steps involved the formation of Detachment G, a group developed to study Remote Viewing; the initiation of INSCOM, an Army Major Command that governed Remote Viewing activities; the development of Gondola Wish, which attempted to monitor enemy uses of Remote Viewing, followed with the development of a working, intelligence collection group at Fort Meade called Grill Flame. In the late seventies, Grill Flame was integrated with SRI’s experimentation with Remote Viewing.
In 1981, Brigadier General Albert Stubblebine, III assumes Command of INSCOM. The next year, Ed Dames, an intelligence officer who would ultimately play a large role in the publicizing and privatization of Remote Viewing, begins to use Grill Flame as a source of intelligence information. That same year, Ingo Swann discovers new and more powerful Remote Viewing Protocols.
In 1983, INSCOM connects with the Monroe Institute and starts sending recruits to take the Gateway Course to learn the art of astral projection. (see article on Astral Projection). That same year, Ingo Swann begins to train four US Army officers and a female civilian in Remote Viewing. One of those Remote Viewing officers is Edward Dames, CPT. Later on, Dames will be one of the trainers of Mel Riley, Lyn Buchanan, Gabrielle Pettingell & Dave Morehouse.
After his military work in Remote Viewing is over, Dave Morehouse decides to break publicly expose the existence of Remote Viewing to the private sector, a feat for which he pays heavily as record in his book, Psychic Warrior (St. Martin’s Press, 1996). Although Morehouse is not particularly successful in these efforts at the time, it is Ed Dames who becomes the major spokesman for Remote Viewing through Art Bell’s late night radio show. Dames rather disturbing, apocalyptic visions eventually leading him to the nickname of Doctor Doom. Ed Dames actively teaches and explores Remote Viewing’s possibilities. Private companies like Britain’s Paranormal Management Systems and America’s PSI TEK continue to explore the Remote Viewing World.

Etheric Exit Point on the Body

I have read many books and articles on Astral Projection from a number of sources. One question that always comes to mind is 'what part of the physical body does the astral or etheric body leave from?' In most cases people describe leaving from the top of the head..."The chief means of leaving the body is through the head, they maintained, and sometimes the projector will experience him or herself spinning out the of the body...His cas studies include 29 incidents in which the reporters specifically described leaving the body through the head. These were physical sensations, too, and not just images. Having experienced this phenomenon myself, I can vouch for how stunning this effect can be. It often feels as if your inner self were being sucked out right through a hole in the top of your head!"
