I have reservations about this post.
I’ve had a copy of the following letter for a few years, don’t know how many other folks have read it, and don’t know whether it’s published anywhere. It makes a strong statement about alleged UFO abductions of a certain type.
This will be controversial. I’ve not put it on the blog before now because I know that it will irritate colleagues, even some friends of mine. We all, every day, make these sorts of decisions: what to say and what to leave alone. I’m going to try to say very little myself and just let the letter writer speak.
This is, as you will see, a person who has earned an opinion.
The following is merely a full transcript of this letter, written to Ted Bloecher in 1977. The author was writing him to mention a case involving a husband and wife in Connecticut, which Ted was interested in learning more about.
Here is a case, if you’re interested – complete with everything. I would put it in the contactee-type but Gail had hypnosis with Jim Harder last year and as a result told of being taken from bedroom on board a ufo when she was about 12 or 13 years old. She became a contactee. The interesting thing is recently her husband joined her and he believes he is one also.
Apparently they use self-hypnosis and believe that they are receiving earth-shattering information about ufos – their term, complete with descriptions of aliens, messages, and he is somewhat upset for she reads his mind, and always knows what he is doing, although innocent.
They had contacts with one investigator, who, after a while was walking around with a Bible under his arm, and muttering about the devil. However in the past, a high rate of ufo sightings occurred behind their home – and they have seen numerous ones, including landed ones.
I have never met them personally, but have talked for fairly long periods of time via phone. They are looking for reassurance that they are not crazy – of course, they are not. But they have done damage to themselves – how many I have worked with! A person has a fairly good sighting, and somehow he gets trapped into thinking he is a contactee – he is connected with ufos in some way, so his friends make all kinds of suggestions – meditation, self-hypnosis – and the person goes on to drag out of his own mind all kinds of weird, nonsensical thinkings which he begins to believe. It takes two to three years of actively working with this type of person to get them back on their feet – to trace back every thought and how it originated. At the moment I do not have the time; also distance involved to work with them by phone would be too expensive. Unfortunately, thousands are brain-washing themselves thru readings contacts and in some areas attendance at training sessions to put themselves in this unhappy situation. While others are making them, I am curing them. But I can not come out and tell them what is happening to them – they must learn to realize this themselves, and to pinpoint some basic need which is being satisfied by this, a real human need of being special in some way. The same kind of situation happened with Marianne, but fortunately she is cured now, and I was able to protect her from investigation until we had this success. We do not have this type of situation in NH. Maybe because people who have close contact, get in touch with me.
It would be appreciated if you could contact them — is it ok for me to give them your address?
I’m going to say the minimum that I can shut myself up to say, and let this simmer.
1). Betty Hill had earned her opinion, particularly by 1977;
2). She uses the term “contactee” in her own broadly-conceived way [again, remember that this is 1977]. She includes any UFO encounter claimant who believes that these very close interactions are occurring to them all the time or “regularly.” Whether “pleasantly informational” or just repetitively intrusive, she is concerned about people talking themselves into WAY more than what has actually happened to them;
3). Elsewhere, I have read Betty taking to task not only the self-hypnotizers [or even trusters in hypnogogic state imagery or dream memories], but particularly the, for her, abusers of bad and shallow unprofessional hypnosis techniques, who in her view were producing false beliefs in people who had certain personal and to-be-taken-seriously needs … but which were not truly UFO related.
Historically, Betty did not know that she was talking to a Ted Bloecher who would take her views quite seriously [as he did everything which had any sense to it], but who also would find his flexibility of thought gradually eroded by the arrival in his research life [in a little over a year] of a UFO experiencer who would become the leading abductions hypnotist of all time.
I am probably in trouble with a lot of people now [if they meditate on the theoretical and actual consequences if Betty’s views are correct], but … well, I’m old and can try to just drift off into the sunset on this subject. For some colleagues, it might clarify a little more why I have been an appreciator of cases like Betty and Barney’s, or Buff Ledge [and a few others] without being a fan of the mass of modern abduction/regular contact claims.
Peace … I mean it.
Full Disclosure: Navy Commander Details His Bizarre UFO Encounter
A retired Navy Commander released his official statement about that one time he had a UFO encounter, witnessing a bizarre craft rising out of the ocean and flying past his plane.
On February 10, 1951, Navy pilot and officer Graham Bethune, along with his crew, was flying in a mission from Iceland to Newfoundland.
While finishing the mission, they experienced something rather inexplicable. This event marked the whole life of the ex-Navy commander and the rest of the crew as well.
Namely, the members of the mission noticed a bizarre light on the ocean’s watery surface around 300 miles from Newfoundland.
These lights were so eminent and scattered throughout a large area hence the men felt like they were flying over a city.
During the Disclosure Project Conference in Washington DC in 2001, ex-commander Bethune explained his weird UFO encounter.
“As we approached this glow it turned to a monstrous circle of white lights on the water. Then we saw a yellow halo, small, much smaller than whatever it was launched from, about fifteen miles away.”
In only a matter of seconds, the gleaming UFO equaled their altitude. Thus, Bethune had to free the autopilot and draw the plane’s nose down in order to dodge a crash. But soon, the object shifted going towards them.
“As the UFO approached my plane and flew alongside it, we could see the domed craft which had a corona discharge,” he said.
At the same time, certain plane instruments started failing due to the powerful electromagnetic disruptions the UFO generated.
The plane had 31 passengers, a psychiatrist and of course, the crew aboard. All of them watched as the event was unrolling.
As soon as the plane landed, the witnesses were questioned and pressured on signing a non-disclosure form. Their testimonies, however, were upheld by radar data from an Air Force station in Goose Bay, Labrador.
Do you believe Mr. Bethune and his crew really experienced a true UFO encounter? Tell us your opinion.
Will Vladimir Putin Disclose Alien Presence?
A couple of major news outlets today tossed up headlines saying Vladimir Putin is about to disclose the reality of alien presence on earth. A potential Putin UFO disclosure statement would be world-changing.
The claim comes from the Paradigm Research Group founder, Stephen Bassett. Bassett is a US lobbyist on the issue of alien disclosure (he’s the only one).
If I had two minutes with Putin, my only question would be why do you not tell people about the ET presence. I believe Vladimir Putin is well aware of the ET presence. ~Stephen Bassett in a Russian Network TV interview.
Essentially, Bassett believes a global gag order keeps world leaders from disclosing the truth about aliens and UFOs.
Where’s the Evidence?
I went over all the news articles I could find regarding this revelation and there’s not as much interesting to it as I’d hoped.
Bassett traveled to Russia hoping to convince Putin to disclose what he knows, if anything, about aliens. He never actually got to speak to Putin though. He only had an interview with a Russian television network where he explained his beliefs.
Unfortunately, regardless of what Vladimir Putin knows, there’s nothing in Bassett’s interview to suggest he might be considering any type of UFO disclosure.
Putin UFO Disclosure?
So what might Putin know about UFOs?
Well, he sure as hell knows more about what’s going on than I do. The Russian interest in possible extraterrestrial technology is unquestioned. If there was anything going on, Putin would be one of the first to be grabbing the intel.
I believe Vladimir Putin is well aware of the ET presence. ~Bassett
Whether it happens or not, once one leader spills the beans it’s likely that more will follow. I’d love for Putin or Trump to come out and say, “yes aliens are visiting us and here’s proof.” It’s highly unlikely though. There’s always the possibility that our world leaders don’t even have proof.
Perhaps one day this will be the image with the headline: “Vladimir Putin provides proof of alien involvement on Earth”
The articles I found touting the Putin UFO disclosure seem to really be reporting the beliefs of a specific researcher. But it turns out, he doesn’t have any real information about Putin’s intentions.
I would still be cool though if he said something. It’s fun to think about. I’ll keep hoping that one day it happens.
Mysterious underwater object link to ‘Tic Tac’ UFO sighting
Remember that undated report on the Nimitz UFO incident discovered by a news team in Las Vegas?
Not only did it detail the capabilities of the supposed alien craft, it also hinted at another mysterious object encountered by a different pilot during the training exercises: Something huge and submerged beneath the waves encountered by a Navy fighter pilot.
The details are vague, but they certainly deepen the mystery of what happened off the coast of San Diego.
According to the report (turn to page 6), a Lt. Col. was doing a Function Test Flight (a test to see if the plane was fully functional after being repaired) when he was asked to go check out an “unidentified airborne contact,” along with two other pilots.
He was asked if he had any ordnance (weapons) on board, to which he replied no.
Officials say this was a strange question; no air controller had ever asked him that when dealing with an unknown contact situation.
Soon after, he came close to the coordinates of the unknown object and was told to “skip it” and head back by the controller.
Instead, the Lt. Col. decided to go check it out.
What he found was a “disturbance” in the water between 50 and 100 meters in diameter that was close to a round shape.
It created a large area of frothing white water, and reminded the pilot of “something rapidly submerging from the surface like a submarine or a ship sinking.”
Soon after, he looked toward the area again and found no trace of the disturbance or any craft near the spot.
According to the report, the disturbance may have been caused by an AAV that was ‘cloaked’ or ‘invisible to the human eye.’
The report came to light roughly a month ago when it was published by I-Team, a Las Vegas investigative news team that covers everything from crime to local events.
It’s still unclear whether the document is authentic, but if it is, it’s one of the most persuasive pieces of evidence for modern UFOs.
