Cosmic Peace Part 2,
“Abductions,” Who are the Controllers? And Shadows of War
Joseph Burkes MD 2013
A growing number of people find the extraterrestrial explanation most reasonable for the UFO dilemma. Yes, many sightings are undoubtedly due to other types of phenomenon. Honest skeptics as well as prejudiced self styled debunkers would have us believe that all structured craft which appear to defy the laws of nature, are simply advanced terrestrial military craft. Despite the skeptics’ pronouncements, the UFO phenomenon is quite robust. The number of close encounters with true unknowns continues to increase. Sightings of unearthly craft, appearing as flying golden globes, saucers and triangles, persist in defying the pronouncements of debunkers.
If the ET hypothesis is the correct explanation for UFO phenomena then we are not alone and the question arises. “Can we live in peace with our cosmic neighbors?” To help prevent war and hopefully usher in a new era of interplanetary cooperation, the creation of a new kind of peace movement is required, one that acknowledges the ET presence and resists those social forces that are systematically fanning the flames of war. Such a movement will definitely require a strong spiritual base. In my opinion groups like Rama and the CE-5 Initiative are laying the foundation for a cosmic peace campaign.
From 1992 till 1998 I was closely associated with Dr. Steven Greer’s Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence, (CSETI). I resigned because of personal, political and professional reasons but have remained very interested in what I call “the contact movement.”
While engaged in leadership activities for CSETI I had a number of limited interactive encounters with what appeared to be extraterrestrial spacecraft. In addition my field work with individual contactees has demonstrated to my satisfaction that consciousness mediated, or in other words, mind-to-mind interactions, is an important mode of communication with non-human intelligence. I have worked with a number of credible investigators who have quietly described their having direct face to face encounters with non-human beings of presumed ET origins.
The reaction of terrestrial elites, governments, scientific and religious authorities, has been a predictable, albeit not an enlightened one. It is my assessment that the current ET presence profoundly threatens all terrestrial power. This includes the international corporate, military, political and religious leaders of our planet. Without acknowledging and thoroughly studying this challenge to terrestrial power, those interested in the phenomenon of extraterrestrial spacecraft visiting our planet, will in my opinion be hopelessly confused.
In the absence of undeniable evidence that the extraterrestrials are here, our leaders have simply attempted to ignore their presence. A de facto policy of denial of the ET visitations has been in effect for over half a century. Witnesses to the extraterrestrial presence are routinely subjected to ridicule in an attempt to secure their silence.
Allegations of Abuse, “Alien Abductions.”
Sadly within the civilian UFO research community, harrowing tales of routine abuse by of non-human beings are being peddled non-stop.
The so-called “alien abduction” experience is the focus of much investigation by sincere private citizens. The highly bizarre nature of these numerous accounts leads many to question the reality of what is being told. UFO investigators often lack the scientific research tools and financial resources to adequately study this phenomenon. Volunteer investigators often can not provide professional counseling for witnesses who claim to have experienced psychological trauma at the hands of non-human beings.
Thus a popular mythology appears to have emerged. Frightful tales portray humanity as being the helpless victim before the onslaught of “alien abductors.” On scandal sheets, in sci-fi horror films and in tabloid television reportage, fear of the unknown is being exploited to promote xenophobic, racist and militaristic fantasies in response to what appears to be a growing extraterrestrial presence.
Under the current conditions of general societal denial that we are being visited by ETs, the predominant human response to a sighting has been a passive one. The UFO literature is rife with accounts describing how those observing ET craft make no attempts at interacting with the intelligence piloting these strange vehicles. The response of passive amazement, as well as fear based approaches to the ET presence, are not the only ones that humanity is capable of. The situation is beginning to change in positive ways.
Individuals and small groups with a more active and upbeat approach to the ETs have taken the daring step of deliberately inviting contact with Extra-terrestrial Intelligence. As a result of these efforts, numerous encounters with extraterrestrial spacecraft have been documented in the course of fieldwork. A smaller number of human initiated close encounters with Extra-terrestrial Biological Entities (EBEs) have also been described.
One long-standing example of such an effort has been the extraordinary work of the group known in the past as Mission Rama. It was founded in 1974 around the contact experiences of Sixto Paz Wells and his coworkers in Peru. For nearly four decades Rama has quietly facilitated human initiated close encounters for thousands of people. The result has been the creation of a worldwide network of contactees who are promoting interplanetary solidarity and peace.
Another organization seeking positive interactions with the extra- terrestrials is the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI). Founded in 1990 by the North Carolina physician Dr Steven Greer, it has carried out a campaign to initiative contact called the CE-5 Initiative. The designation CE-5 stands for Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind, which is the term CSETI has coined to describe human empowered contact with the Extra-terrestrials. The CE-5 Initiative is openly organizing teams of UFO researchers to go out at night to secure locations. There Dr. Greer and his followers are attracting ET craft for limited peaceful interactions. As a former facilitator of a CSETI working group, I can testify to the efficacy of Greer’s approach to initiating limited contact.
Who Are the Controllers?
Unfortunately these preliminary attempts at citizen’s diplomacy are not the only examples of humans interacting with ET beings visiting our planet. There is growing evidence indicating that secret military programs focusing on the ET presence are also underway. Although initially these covert groups probably worked under government aegis, informed sources have reported that private defense contractors now play a predominant role.
CSETI Director Steven Greer has reported meeting with many retired military and intelligence officers who have been involved with the UFO phenomenon as a result of their work. He has also described having a December 1993 private briefing with then CIA Director Woolsey.
In the May 1994 CSETI Newsletter Dr. Greer wrote the following,
“I have reached the tentative conclusion that virtually all of the U.S.’s elected and appointed officials, including the President and Cabinet members, are “out of the loop” on this subject. This is an informal opinion based on significant meetings with relevant and knowledgeable people. Exactly who, then, is at the reins of this whole area, both in the U.S. and internationally, remains a mystery. But we have a good idea of the nature of this group. It is probably:
1. Multi – National
2. Multi – Agency
3. Quasi – Governmental
4. Quasi – Private
5. Extraordinarily Secret
If true, this means a number of things:
The President of the U.S., the Cabinet, and perhaps even the Joint Chiefs of Staff may not be able to disclose anything on this subject, since they probably do not have access to the real information. And if they ask, I am not at all confident that they would be told the truth, if anything at all.
Those controlling this subject may do so without any legal, constitutional, or moral authority. This would be true both in the U.S. and abroad.”
Shadows of War
It appears more than possible that “those controlling this subject” may covertly be taking direct military action against the extra terrestrials. In his 1998 book “Confirmation”, author Whitley Strieber’s analyses controversial NASA videotape made on space shuttle Discovery during mission STS-48. This video has been featured several times on national television. It displays what appears to be an unidentified flying object being fired upon by some sort of particle beam weapon.
The incident transpired on September 15, 1991. The Space Shuttle Discovery was flying near Australia, approximately 1500 miles northwest from a secret US military base located at Pine Gap near Alice Springs. Strieber details a thorough analysis of the videotape by physicist Dr. Jack Kasher and imaging specialist Dr. Mark Carlotto. Their conclusion is that the prosaic explanations provided by NASA are simply not credible.
Support for the notion that covert military forces are fighting a secret war against the extraterrestrials has also been provided by Philip Corso, a retired US Army Colonel and author of the controversial book, “The Day After Roswell.”
Colonel Corso was a former staff member of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council. He also worked under General Trudeau at the Army’s Research and Development Division’s Foreign Technology desk. In “Day After Roswell” Corso alleges that he passed out pieces of the wreckage of a crashed UFO to high tech firms. This supposedly allowed advanced alien technology to be analyzed and then integrated into our industrial culture.
Philip Corso after publication of his book quickly became a celebrity within the flying saucer subculture. Sadly few UFO experts criticized his openly bellicose response to the ET presence. On page 267-267 in his book he states,
“These creatures weren’t benevolent alien beings who had come to enlighten human beings…. As long as were incapable of defending ourselves, we had to allow them to intrude as they wished. … We hid the truth and the EBEs (Extra-terrestrial Biological Entities) used it against us until 1974 when we had our first real shoot down of an alien craft over Ramstein Air Force base in Germany.”
It is difficult if not impossible to verify the particulars of Philip Corso’s account. In “Day after Roswell” he does not offer the names of others who might corroborate his version of the events described. On July 16, 1998, at the age of 83, he reportedly passes away from a heart attack.
As a peace movement activist, I find Philip Corso’s extreme views chilling. I suspect that his perspective on the ET-human relationship nevertheless has great value. It is my suspicion that Corso’s pronouncements may provide us with an insight into the mind-set of a very important group, the wing of military-industrial complex. These groups that will likely try to use disclosure of the ET presence to unleash a new cold war. Such a campaign would improve the fortunes of military-industrial complex. My fear is that any disclosure of the ET presence will be used to fuel xenophobia and to precipitate a costly arms race against an unlikely adversary.
Open war with advanced ET civilizations is an extremely remote possibility given the likelihood that UFOs are an ancient phenomena. Extraterrestrials have probably been here for centuries if not for millennia. If the ETs were planning aggressive action against human- kind, why should they wait so many years before mounting an open attack? Thus, by passing a test of time, their non-harmful posture is confirmed.
If disclosure of the ET presence were suddenly made today, defense corporations, their military and political allies would probably use such a revelation for their own narrow interests. This would result in an accelerated ” Star Wars” program. I imagine the slogan, “we must negotiate from a position of strength,” would be featured prominently in the congressional sales campaign for space based weapon systems. A trillion dollars could be needlessly wasted to prepare against an enemy we could never successfully fight. On a planet where some 10 million children every year die from hunger and preventable disease, squandering our limited economic resources on such weaponry would be particularly tragic.
