    • Give us new mysteries:

      • Flight patterns

      • Crop circles

      • How and why are they here?


Transcendence l.jpg
Transcendence

  • UFOs transcend our perceptions and experiences

  • Free of laws of physics, time-space

  • Evoke awe, humility, faith


Supernatural beings l.jpg

Extraterrestrials have abilities, and powers, that transcend nature

Contactees/abductees sometimes develop similar powers

Six Extraterrestrial “types”:

Supernatural Beings


The greys l.jpg
The Greys nature

  • Four feet tall, hairless, sexless, big eyes

  • Zeta Reticululs

  • Barney Barnett, Betty & Barney Hill

  • Linked to technolgy, alien abduction, medical experimentation, hybridization, government conspiracy


Slide6 l.jpg

The Blues nature

  • Similar in appearance to Greys, but with blue tint to skin

  • Arrived shortly after Greys, 1947

  • Warned US government of evil intentions of Greys, were rejected

  • Went to Arizona, allied with Hopi Indians

  • Robert Morningsky & Sky Warriors - “The Terra Papers”


Pleiadians l.jpg
Pleiadians nature

  • Highly spiritually evolved, benevolent, fourth dimensional beings

  • Physical appearance either none (only speak through channels), or “nordic” – blond, beautiful

  • Barbara Marciniak, Billy Meier

  • Earth reaching point of spiritual transformation – Pleiadians will help


Slide8 l.jpg

  • Extraterrestrial entities channeled by Barbara Marciniak

  • Similar message of personal responsibility, we are god, etc.

  • Added element = extraterrestrial origins of humans – created by aliens to fulfill spiritual destiny.

  • We have forgotten our destiny, however, and been led astray by poorly evolved aliens who fear our potential.

  • Bad aliens are in league with American government – a theme we will see more of in next section of our course.

  • Pleiadians are here to guide us back to spiritual path


Slide9 l.jpg

Other Alien species nature

  • Lyrians – channeled by Lyssa Royale

  • Sirians – water-based, spiritual, concerned with humans, dolphins, whales

  • Orion Empire – Council of Light, Evil Orions

  • Reptoids/Reptilians – reptilian, possible masters of “Greys”, ancestors of humans, intent on conquest & stopping human spiritual evolution


Perfection l.jpg
Perfection nature

  • UFO shape symbolic of perfection

  • Extraterrestrial societies vastly superior: free from poverty, violence, prejudice, etc.

  • Technology vastly superior: UFOs, etc.

  • Pursuit of perfection = religious goal


Slide11 l.jpg

Salvation nature

Mission of Extraterrestrials often understood as one of salvation – from nuclear, environmental disaster, or from spiritual lapse

Salvation needs supernatural (alien) aid

Salvation comes from outside, not inside


Cosmologies l.jpg

Transformation nature

Cosmologies

Like mystical experiences, close encounters (esp. of 3-5th kinds) transform effected individual

Person must reevaluate whole worldview, belief systems, religious faith, personal history

Become set apart, ostracized due to new faith – often “witness” to new truth

  • Who are we, why are we here? Traditional religious answers now found inadequate by some

  • Traditional Scientific answers also found inadequate

  • Extraterrestrials add new dimension to quest – combines “science” i.e. alien DNA, etc. with religion

  • Places human evolution in cosmic framework


Mystical experiences l.jpg
Mystical Experiences nature

  • Six basic elements of close encounter of 3rd or 4th kind:

    • Solitary

    • Isolated location

    • Wise superior beings take initiative in contact

    • Light is dominant symbol

    • Sexual element

    • Absence of natural sounds


Mystical experiences14 l.jpg
Mystical Experiences nature

  • Reason one: von Daniken’s thesis – when mystics thought they were talking to supernatural beings, they were really talking to aliens

  • Reason two: Extraterrestrials are wise spiritual beings, like gods, so human spiritual response to them is similar

  • Reason three: human mind capable of producing certain mental stimuli, variously interpreted as contact with gods, or aliens


Abduction experiences l.jpg
Abduction experiences nature

  • John E. Mack

  • Harvard psychologist, Cambridge psychiatrist

  • Pulitzer Prize winner

  • Reluctant believer in alien abductions

  • Claims alien abductions have religious implications


Religious transformation of consciousness l.jpg
Religious transformation of consciousness nature

  • 8 ways abduction experiences trigger spiritual transformation:

  • Pushing Through – overcoming victim emphasis

  • Aliens as Intermediaries – coming to see aliens as halfway between human mortality & divine consciousness

  • Homecoming – sense of joy at relatedness to extraterrestrials – genetic link


Religious transformation of consciousness17 l.jpg
Religious transformation of consciousness nature

  • Past Life Experiences – under hypnotic regression, abduction experiences traced back to infancy, plus memories of earlier lives

  • Altered view of human identity – humanness centered in

  • consciousness, not biology

  • Transpersonal experiences – identification with other

  • species – aliens, animals (dolphins, whales)


Religious transformation of consciousness18 l.jpg
Religious transformation of consciousness nature

  • Double Alien/Human Identity – sense of double identity: fully human, but also alien – self as other, abduction a positive experience despite temporary fear

  • Collapse of Space/Time Dichotomies – past, present, future collapse; near/far dichotomies collapse – monistic sense of time/space emerges



Responses to religious dimensions of ufo phenomeon l.jpg
Responses to religious dimensions of UFO phenomeon nature

  • Many UFO enthusiasts simply reject religious dimensions in favour of pure science/technology emphasis

  • Others explore spiritual dimensions, and become convinced that extraterrestrials have spiritual agenda

  • In latter case, religious texts become source texts for showing ongoing interest of extraterrestrials in our spiritual evolution

  • For small minority, spiritual dimensions of UFO experiences become central focus of organized religious convictions – UFO groups, next week!
