UFO101 Types and Kinds of Events
  • Types
  • Anomaly (AN) anything unexplained ghosts,
    monsters
  • Distant Encounter (FB or MA) Phenomenon is at a
    distance
  • Close Encounter (CE) Phenomenon is up close and
    personal)
  • Kinds
  • First Kind - you're here, it's there
  • Second Kind the same as 1, but it left
    something behind
  • Third Kind - you're here, they're there, but at a
    distance
  • Fourth Kind - you and they are both in their
    reality Abduction/Contact
  • Fifth Kind (more than one definition)
  • You called them (Greer/Haines)
  • UFOs responding to human signals (blinking
    headlights)
  • Human Initiated Contact (CSETI)
  • They hurt you (Vallee) UFOs are dangerous (!!!)
  • ....... Focus on CE1, CE4 in this talk .......

7
A Close Encounter of the First Kind
  • 1993 Hwy 65 in Blaine, MN

?Two people in car, observe close approach of
light Witness looks away for a moment Moments
later, both look up and observe large triangular
object

Hovering and ManeuversNew Brighton Freeway CE1
Fall of 1979
  • Object observed by large number of people
  • Hovered/Maneuvered over I694 - I35W interchange

9
Sighting Relationship
  • CE1 Relationship mostly one way Observation
  • CE3 Relationship stronger - one way (possibly
    more...)
  • Relationship two-way?
  • In CE1 or CE3
  • Witness sometimes feels that object is there for
    me or
  • They are aware of me
  • Object is watching me
  • Possibly look for CE4 in these cases
  • Event of fourth kind Relationship two way,
    witness becomes an experiencer

  • Thoughts and Speculations

30
CE4 Investigation and Fieldwork
  • CE4 Just like any other sighting
  • only closer... ?
  • May look like CE1, with anomalies
  • Begin with standard witness interview
  • Ask witness to describe event
  • Cognitive interview (FI Manual 5th Ed. P62)
  • Multiple passes
  • Recount in reverse order
  • Change perspective (if you were over there, what
    would you see...)
  • Ask about other events, family involvement
  • Finally, ask about beliefs re UFOs, experiences,
    etc...
  • In any close sighting, Look for CE4 indicators

31

    strange hospital or lying on a table
  • Sense of special knowledge/mission/secret that is
    present but hidden

32

34
Agenda
  • Overview Sightings and Encounters
  • Events of the Fourth Kind Abduction
  • Field Investigation
  • CE4s Challenge and Healing
  • Thoughts and Speculations

35
The Shattered Reality
  • High strangeness of events during CE4
  • Far from normal experiences Often leaves
    experiencer with limited ability to cope
  • Can result in extreme fear
  • Fear Management Hypnotherapy extremely useful
  • In The Cosmic Bridge
  • Cases of Evelyn, Jenny, Carolyn, Amy, Jim
  • Experiencer has a foot in each world
  • Normal everyday world
  • World of the phenomenon

36
The Emotional Effects of Encounters
  • Reactions can range from
  • Interest/Curiosity Wow, Cool!
  • .to.
  • "God Awful" trauma
  • Shattered Reality
  • ("Oh My God, it really happened)
  • Fear
  • Can be extreme
  • CE4 can happen at any time
  • Hypnotherapy can be a primary healing tool
  • dealing with emotional effects.

37
Healing is top priority
  • Check early Is post-contact trauma present?
  • check for fear response
  • Treat as any other case of long-term fear
  • Healing work as needed
  • Based upon clients goals some may not need it
  • Understanding What happened?
  • Experiencer a Cosmic Bridge between worlds
  • Goal often is to help experiencer to resolve
    these two worlds

38
Evelyn Fear management afterPulled out of
Bed CE4
  • Subsequent months after encounter fear of being
    alone in house
  • Panic at night sky, subject of UFOs, E.T.s,
    Space, etc...
  • But also extreme fascination
  • Feeling of Mission here for a purpose
  • But terrified to seek the truth
  • Talk Therapy Counseling ineffective
  • Began with specialized hypnotherapy
  • (parts work stay tuned...)

39
Parts Therapy Resolving fear-instilling event
  • Evelyn Couldnt start with regression, due to
    fear factor, needed initial healing before
    starting
  • Mind is a quilt-work of thoughts, ideas,
    memories, etc.
  • Each acts as a piece of personality
  • Each part effects overall health, personality,
    etc.
  • Open interaction, permeable boundaries.
  • In trance can address individual parts, mediate
    between opposing parts

40
Parts Work (continued)
  • Called out part that helps Evelyn feel the fear
  • Sought out how it got its job
  • Source religious teaching to fear unexplained
  • Also called out a Spiritual Explorer part
  • Wanted to explore her experiences, understand
    them
  • Able to resolve discord between Spiritual
    Explorer and Fear parts
  • Allowed Evelyn to explore experiences on
    condition that rest of life normal/grounded
  • Subsequently, a great deal of info emerged
    regarding events

41
RegressionGetting to the heart of the matter
  • To learn experiencers perception of encounter
  • Sequence of events behind the veil
  • Clean regression is paramount
  • Limit vocabulary to generic, non-leading
    questions/instructions
  • Please continue
  • What are you experiencing?
  • What else do you notice?
  • How do you feel about that?
  • Multiple passes through event
  • Other techniques available but this is the
    cleanest way to develop detail

42
Multiple Passes
  • First few passes Allow account to develop
  • Should be stable, with increasing detail.
  • If stable, look for progressive elaboration
  • If core account varies, may be "creative" in
    nature
  • ...but still important, even if not CE4 event
  • look for metaphor or dream material, what is
    lesson
  • Dream test
  • ask generic question about what is in the
    distance
  • if detail is present, then may be biographical
  • If blank, fog or no detail, then may be a dream

43
Later passes
  • Secret details description of the "interior"
  • Comparison with commonly described classic
    abduction events (some kept to CE4 researchers).
  • Similarity suggests that it may be a abduction
    event
  • Ask "false lead" questions
  • Ask check questions that lead toward the
    mundane (no aliens, no abduction, etc)
  • Risky Generally want to avoid leading questions
  • Can ask more detailed questions (stay generic)
  • Followup healing work (next slide...)

44
Reframing and other healing work
  • Reframing
  • Client specific viewpoints of the event
  • Goal is understanding, (self)forgiveness,
    empowerment
  • Re-examine meaning of a given event
  • Chair/gestalt therapy
  • Put the leader of the aliens in the chair
    allow dialog
  • Empowerment of experiencer telling off the
    leader
  • Release and forgiveness of them
  • Parts work as needed
  • Emotional protection imagery
  • Finish with ecology check Check of emotional
    state

45
Agenda
  • Overview Sightings and Encounters
  • Events of the Fourth Kind Abduction
  • Field Investigation
  • Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy
  • Thoughts and Speculations

46
Thoughts and Speculations
  • Whats going on?
  • What is our relationship with them?
  • What might be the alien agenda(s)?

47
Mystery and Paradox
  • Fermi Paradox where are they?
  • So many stars, so little contact...
  • Why is the phenomenon so paradoxical
  • Why are UFOs so secretive? (or are they?)
  • Why dont they just land on the Whitehouse lawn?
  • Possible Solutions
  • The Zoo Hypothesis
  • Deardorff ET Strategy for Earth
  • Nature Preserve Hypothesis
  • Genetics Hybridization
  • Indigo Hypothesis

48
The Zoo Hypothesis
  • Simplest UFOlogical Resolution to Fermi Paradox
  • They are here but are observing and hidden
  • Interacting with us only covertly
  • ETs want to remain undetected The Prime
    Directive
  • Prevent interference?
  • Prevent us from threatening them?
  • Would seldom see evidence of their presence

49
Deardorff Proposed ET Strategy for Earth
  • Expands on Zoo Hypothesis
  • E.T. Assumption Were not ready for contact
  • Prime Directive Initial interstellar quarantine
  • Stages of contact
  • Observing stage mapping, surveying, scientific
    observations quarantine and non-interference
  • Clandestine contacts, abductions, etc.
  • Infusing contact awareness at the grass roots
  • Gradual disclosure into open consciousness
  • Eventual Entry into "Cosmic Kindergarten"

50
Nature Preserve Hypothesis
  • Another variation of Zoo Hypothesis
  • Earth as a protected ecosystem
  • Aliens as rangers/biologists, humans as
    animals
  • Periodically E.T. rangers/biologists capture
    (abduct) and study human animals
  • Rangers Implant radio collars on the animals
  • A metaphor for UFO abduction?

51
Genetics/Hybridization Aspects of UFO Abduction
  • UFO abduction literature extensively describes ET
    genetic interest
  • Abductee reports of embryos, hybrids, etc...
  • Varying degrees of humanness
  • Being increasingly human seems to be a goal...
    (?)
  • What is the purpose of this?
  • We dont know (!!!)
  • CL Speculation
  • Human Improvement Project (????)
  • (continuation on next slide)

52
Indigo Hypothesis
  • Abductee families - brilliant/psychic/empathic
    children
  • Indigo Child Phenomenon
  • Psychic, brilliant, empathic
  • A lot written on Indigo Child subject in New Age
    community
  • A powerful and controversial phenomenon
  • Correlation between UFO/CE4 and Indigo phenomena?
  • Speculation
  • Jacobs Hybridization Project over the last
    100 years?
  • Genetic results injected back into human gene
    pool?
  • Are we being modified (a human improvement
    project)?
  • To be better citizens of the cosmos?
  • For other (less benevolent) reasons?
  • Idea offers testable theories genetics, ESP
    tests, etc...

53
Speculation E.T. multi-pronged agenda
  • Breed a humanity more advanced psychically
    and/or spiritually?
  • Hybrid reports
  • Indigo children
  • Growing awareness within the individual
  • Psychic awakening
  • Teaching and mission aspects of experiencer
    phenomenon
  • Opening of human consciousness
  • Sheldrake Sum of effects the 100th Monkey
    effect
  • Barbara Marx Hubbards book, Conscious Evolution
  • Suggests an aggregate spiritual emergence in
    progress
  • Preparing us for contact?
  • From Cosmic viewpoint necessary before we can
    travel out there? (were not the greatest
    neighbors yet...)

54
