New York UFO News 2014:
What about the Russians? What about the Aliens?
Joseph Burkes MD 2014
I have been privileged to dialog with the prominent researcher Richard Dolan on several recent Contact Underground blogs.
Here is my response to the concerns he and others have raised about the wisdom of going out into the field and attempting to make contact with flying saucers.
WHAT ABOUT THE RUSSIANS?
Thirty years ago I was in the doctors’ peace movement during the height of the cold war. Those who were opposed to nuclear arms control and god forbid nuclear disarmament were forever saying "what about the Russians?" It was ‘understood” that we Americans wanted peace, but according to many political conservatives how could the USA negotiate with a system that was a “closed society, so undemocratic and expansionistic” like the USSR.
A popular notion among the right wing was that the Soviet Union would have to change before we could give concessions as part of any negotiations. In my opinion those hawks ignored the fact that the Soviets knew the ravages of war, twenty million dead in WWII, and their weaker civilian economy suffered more by military programs that tried to keep up with arms production of the more powerful and vibrant US economic system.
WHAT ABOUT THE ALIEN “ABDUCTIONS?”
Now we have an unknown entity called "ETs." The idea being put forward by prominent researchers is that they might be evil, or some good and some evil. Yes they are forcibly interacting with many people at the psychic level. Even though according to Dr John Mack, we don't truly understand exactly what an "abduction" is. A large section of the UFO community has decided that these strange interactions are essentially physical events and therefore “criminal” in nature.
A NEW KIND OF COLD WAR
Conflict appears to be major part of our relationship with the so-called “aliens” and there is a kind of cold war going on with them. What appear to be ET craft have been fired upon for violating terrestrial "air space."
Governments lie about the UFO presence and defense contractors reportedly have been back engineering ET technology to prepare for what many observers fear will be a new arms race in space.
HERE COME THE CONTACTEES
Using rudimentary psi techniques a multitude of limited interactions have occurred between flying saucers and networks of ordinary citizens. We go out at night and signal at anomalous structured objects that fit the definition of true UFOs. Peruvians starting Rama in 1974 spread this campaign, quietly all across the Spanish speaking world and the more outspoken CSETI, and its offshoots, are operating in North America, Europe and Australia.
Contact activists are being advised that they should not directly engage the aliens because some might be bad, but contact networks have already been doing exactly that for over forty years with no ill effects. Some leaders like Sixto Paz Wells and several dozen of his present and former associates claim to have had face-to-face encounters with aliens. These experiences have reportedly transpired during encounters that humans have initiated themselves!
The peaceful and cooperative nature of these interactions is viewed with suspicion because some people say, “we don't know what the UFOs’ true agenda is.” But how in heavens are we going to know what their agenda is unless we engage them, not as children who wake up with dreams of good or bad aliens, but rather as conscious intelligent adults who put aside some of our fears and are going out to meet them.
FEAR SHOULD NOT PREVENT US FROM BEING PROACTIVE
In my opinion this is truly all about fear. Fear of the Russians, fear of the aliens, fear of what I like to call TOTENCET (pronounced,” toe ten set”) an acronym for This Otherness That Experiencers Now Call ET. By going out into the field with the support of our fellow humans and given the history of safe interactions described above, we can become empowered to advance human knowledge in this important arena. Thus it is my firm conviction that we will never get a grip on this phenomenon unless we directly engage the so-called aliens, at least initially on their terms.
THE POPULARITY OF NEW AGE BELIEFS SHOULD NOT BE A DETERRENT.
But what about all the “new age” type of beliefs so prevalent in contactee networks? Well if my fellow contact activists sing sweet songs of alien friendship and that offends skeptical investigators, I can understand their discomfort. I was trained in western materialist science and consider myself rather agnostic towards religious beliefs.
But after 22 years of willfully going out at night and repeatedly engaging UFOs that signal at us and stage other types of interactions, I am confident that methods being employed are truly working.
Conducting real time research by initiating contact protocols is so important that it is worth the price of feeling uncomfortable because some contact activists are quite passionate in their expression of solidarity with a mysterious intelligence that I suspect humanity is just beginning to comprehend.
In summary I invite all seekers of UFO truth to be open to the possibility of our learning more about this amazing phenomenon by directly engaging UFO intelligence on its own terms. To paraphrase a German 19th century historian, the role of all previous flying saucer researchers has been to study UFO history. The point is to change it!
