If Roswell was extraterrestrial crash, can more details be released?

By Steve Hammons

What if the incident in the Roswell, New Mexico, region in the summer of 1947 actually was a crash of an extraterrestrial craft with deceased and live “extraterrestrial biological entities (EBEs)” aboard?

What if it was not a weather balloon and not an experimental high-altitude device with crash dummies inside? What if it was not a Russian psychological operations (PSYOP) plot as an Area 51 scientist says he was told, and is reported in the new book by writer Annie Jacobsen?

There seem to be significant reliable indications of various kinds that the Roswell case is based on a very unusual event that was deemed to be very important at the time and in subsequent decades … up to today.

Does the Roswell incident explain all of the UFO sightings that have been reported over the years? Or, is it just part of the overall situation that could be quite complex?

Is it all good news? Maybe not.

LESSONS LEARNED

Additionally, other research into unusual or anomalous phenomena is not specifically linked to UFOs, but may be related in some way.

These possibly-related kinds of studies include new and different views of space, time, wormholes, star gates, multiple dimensions and other forward-leaning scientific theories that could change our view of reality and Nature.

Edge-science topics such as extrasensory perception (ESP) and theories about an afterlife also might play a part in the overall scenario that could be related to extraterrestrial visitation – or visitation by other anomalous intelligent beings.

The impacts on human society of such new knowledge could be quite valuable, according to some researchers. The development of humanity could be helped quite a bit by accessing advanced knowledge and understanding, they say.

Yet, the dangers of one population interfacing with another technologically-advanced group of beings can have negative consequences, many people have pointed out.

A common example is the way Native American Indians were affected by the arrival of Europeans. The many tribes had their own unique experiences with these strange visitors from faraway. But, in most cases the Indians’ land was taken, their cultures damaged and they were killed directly by the newcomers’ weapons or by European diseases.

Some researchers say this is a lesson we should learn well when thinking about extraterrestrial visitors.

MAJIC MOMENTS

Many qualified researchers seem to be trying to find out more about these kinds of leading-edge subjects. They report their findings in books, TV shows and other communications platforms. These all probably contribute to our understanding in one way or another – though figuring out what is true can be challenging.

Fantastic stories in movies and fictional works also can contain very helpful information that advances our orientation and acclimation about unconventional situations. They can help our situational awareness.

The new movie project Majic Men about the Roswell case looks like it will also be informative and fun. The tentative title is based on the rumor that “MAJIC” was shorthand for a group and was also a security category for U.S. government activities handling the extraterrestrial situation.

Majic Men may join the ranks of other successful movies and media projects about aliens, edge-science and anomalous phenomena. Maybe audiences are attracted to such works because people sense that there is some good open-source intelligence (OSINT) to be had – maybe even intelligence information that can benefit them and their loved ones directly and personally.

There seem to be indications that human consciousness and the understanding of it are making progress. If significant progress can be made in these fields, then it is theorized that many other areas of life on Earth (and maybe elsewhere) can also be improved significantly.

Steady progress and safe release of information on certain subjects are probably good ways to proceed. That said, a breakthrough once in a while might also be helpful and inspiring.

Maybe the recent media and public attention to the alleged Roswell incident in the context of other factors will contribute to such a breakthrough in human consciousness.

Troops in the afterlife: Special perspectives, new missions

By Steve Hammons

Some recent research into near-death experiences (NDEs) could be interpreted to indicate that U.S. troops in current combat zones who experienced a group trauma of injuries and death might also experience group NDEs.

There may be group and interpersonal effects of NDEs and in situations where people are actually passing on. There may be a shared experience of some kind.

In other words, if a team of soldiers was attacked using an improvised explosive device (IED) for example, injuring some and killing others, they could have a shared experience of moving from their bodies in the classic NDE as they proceed as a group toward the rumored tunnel of light, a portal to the afterlife.

Those injured troops who might eventually survive the attack could go part way with their buddies, then say goodbye and return to face urgent medical treatment.

If reports and research into NDEs and the afterlife have any truth to them, we might wonder what our fallen warriors now think about their lives, their loved ones and their sacrifice.

Do they have new insights and useful perspectives about the reasons they went to Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, World War II, World War I, the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, the Native American Indian wars and the many other battles large and small throughout American and human history?

Can they teach us anything? Are we able to hear them?

ANOTHER OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT

Although many faiths tell us that an afterlife exists in some other dimension of space and time, many people have their doubts. Proving the existence of a place we might call Heaven or some other name is apparently quite difficult using current scientific methods.

Yet, many studies of people who have experienced severe injury or illness and who report an afterlife-type encounter have been conducted using reasonable scientific protocols to the degree possible.

Particularly interesting and potentially valid are the reports of ill or injured young children who have not been indoctrinated into religious or philosophical beliefs, nor exposed to literature or media portrayals of an afterlife. Many of these children have reported going to a beautiful place filled with light, love and happiness before they return to their families on Earth.

Military personnel who might experience the same journey would seem to be in a different position to evaluate such a situation that they also go through. What is their “situational awareness” as they realize they have been killed?

Are they alone or with some of their platoon members, shipmates or aircraft crewmates as they lift out of and above their bodies, then find themselves moving toward a strange and beautiful light? Do they have communication among themselves as they transition from being in a combat mode to the acceptance that they are now in a new operational environment?

We might imagine that their military training and experiences could be useful as they use reconnaissance and intelligence perspectives in the reportedly brief trip to another dimension.

Maybe other fallen veterans greet them upon their arrival. Or, maybe a favorite grandmother and grandfather who passed on years ago are waiting to welcome them.

ONGOING COVERT MISSIONS

It seems reasonable to consider the possibility that our troops who have passed on may still be with us, though in a place that is both far away and very close at hand.

Somehow, it is difficult to see former Marines and other U.S. troops sitting around playing harps. These are beings who take bold action and have outstanding courage. They want to tackle worthwhile goals and accomplish them successfully.

Do they have current ongoing training and missions? If so, what might those entail? Training and missions may involve covert operations that we can only guess about, maybe related to tactics and strategies to further win the peace and establish a lasting victory of some kind.

Wouldn’t it be interesting if clandestine insertions by Heavenly recon teams are taking place now to prepare the way for a more major operation – some kind of beach landing or airborne arrival to liberate us in fantastic and amazing ways?

Maybe there are other discreet and covert activities “behind the lines” to help prepare the way for such a liberation. Appropriate security measures could be in place to help ensure victory.

Maybe this Memorial Day we can not only honor our warriors who have passed on, but also prepare to meet them again.

Insight, understanding not always found in official reports, documents

By Steve Hammons

Sometimes things like government documents, news accounts and scientific investigative reports don’t always convey the deeper potential of forward-leaning research into human perception and awareness, as well as other interesting phenomena.

For example, the open-source files on Project STAR GATE provide plenty of educational information about research into extrasensory perception (ESP), anomalous cognition, remote viewing and transcendent warfare.

Much of this material seems quite helpful. And, it seems to be associated with several other types of anomalous, unconventional and leading-edge topics.

ESP research with dolphins seems particularly fascinating. Other studies indicated that humans might be able to perceive across time. Actually, there are several other aspects of “integrative perception,” “complementary cognition” and "transcendent power" that appear to open up new potential for many people around the world.

Yet, when we see these kinds of approaches in real-life practice, they may take many forms. While many modern researchers try to use scientific methods, other examples follow another path. They may be rooted in ancient understanding.

In my novel Mission Into Light, published in 2001, elderly Navajo and former U.S. Marine Corps “Code Talker” Joe Bear is thinking about his association with the Joint Reconnaissance Study Group, a 10-person joint-service military and civilian team based in San Diego. The son of Joe’s former World War II buddy is now an Air Force colonel and commanding officer of the group.

Below is an excerpt from Mission Into Light, Chapter 10, called “Navajo Intel.”

CHAPTER 10, NAVAJO INTEL

Joe Bear and his wife Maggie had returned to their home in the Navajo Nation in the northeast corner of Arizona. Their visits with friends in San Diego had been fun, but the trip was tiring. He still drove his pickup the full distance to San Diego and back.

He felt a need to make arrangements with certain friends. Code Talker friends. But for now, he sat on his front porch.

Joe thought about the things he’d seen and done in his time on Earth. As a young man, he and other Navajo Code Talkers were part of the networks of OSS, intelligence, and cryptography experts fighting the Japanese military in the Pacific. The Code Talkers went on dangerous missions and were often near, on or behind the front lines. Many of them did not make it back to the Navajo Nation alive.

The Code Talkers still alive sometimes got together. Some of them belonged to the VFW post in Gallup, New Mexico, just across the Arizona state line. A small modest museum in a Kayenta restaurant displayed memorabilia about the Code Talkers.

And yet, Joe often felt his duty as a Marine was not yet done. Old OSS and intelligence buddies from World War Two kept in touch from all over the country. Some of them helped put together the meeting they had planned.

Tom O’Brien was the son of one of his old Marine buddies. Grown up from the boy Joe remembered. And now an Air Force colonel in charge of an intelligence and research team in San Diego. Joe had a feeling this group was going to accomplish something good.

As he was thinking about these things and looking out toward the rocky hills in the distance, his wife Maggie opened the front door and came out on the porch with lunch time plates of mutton stew and two glasses of cold lemonade.

She put the food and glasses on the table nearby and silently sat down next to him. They had raised two sons, now grown and married with children of their own. Joe and Maggie were the grandparents of three girls and two boys.

They lived comfortably in a newer double wide factory-built home that had all the amenities. A satellite dish on the roof brought in dozens of TV stations to the new thirty-two-inch TV their sons had given them last Christmas.

Joe and Maggie had lived almost their entire lives on the Navajo reservation. When Joe was recruited for the Marines at age nineteen, Maggie went to San Diego briefly to be near him. Joe had often sent her letters from strange places in the Pacific, and the letters were frequently edited by military censors for security reasons.

Maggie took bites of the stew, sipped on her lemonade and reached over to touch Joe’s hand.

“What are you thinking about, old man?”

“Oh, those people on Thomas O’Brien’s team in San Diego. I think about what they are doing and what they might accomplish. I feel hopeful, but sometimes worried,” he told her as he picked up his lemonade and took a sip.

“They have enemies, don’t they, Joe?”

“Yes, wife, they do. Dangerous enemies.”

“They’re coming up for your meeting?”

“Yes. We’re going to take them to that old kiva in the hidden canyon we discovered. Maybe it has some power from the ancient times,” Joe speculated.

Maggie would also attend as well as their two sons, who would help with all the guests.

“Eat your stew, old man. It’s getting cold.”

Joe reached out and took the nearby plate and a fork. He held the plate of mutton in his lap and started to eat. He’d been eating mutton since he was a small child.

As a young boy he helped his family with the herd of sheep the family had. Both Maggie’s and Joe’s mothers, like many Navajo women, used the wool to weave beautiful clothes and blankets on old-style traditional looms.

Joe remembered the horses and dogs the family had when he was a boy. It was a good life. They lived in a traditional hogan back then. No modern kitchens, bathrooms, and carpet in those days.

Many Navajo families still lived in hogans, or kept one nearby their more modern homes. Even today, many did not have electricity or phones.

As they finished their lunch, Maggie started to clear away the dishes to take them inside to the kitchen.

Joe then made some phone calls to a couple of friends and confirmed a sweat ceremony for that afternoon. These men had known each other since childhood and through World War Two service in the Pacific. After the war, they had grown older, raising families, living out their lives on the Navajo Nation and sometimes traveling around the Four Corners area and the Southwest.

From their home in the Navajo Nation, they had watched the turbulence of the Cold War and Vietnam years shake the larger society of the United States. Assassinations, racial troubles, terrorist threats, had come and gone. They had also witnessed abuse of natural resources, extinction of animals and plants, weather changes, and natural disasters. Technology had made quantum leaps in their lifetimes.

INNER VISION

Later that afternoon, Joe and three friends met at a small hut-like sweat lodge. The rocks to be used for the sweat lodge were sitting on a campfire outside. Using a shovel, the four each carried one large, hot rock to the center of the small hut, then sat in a circle. From a bucket inside, water was poured on the rocks, causing great clouds of steam, and filling the lodge with heat.

Joe had suggested the meeting, and he led the proceedings.

“Great Spirit of all life, hear our words. We seek guidance from You. Our friends and our people want Your Path to be made clear.”

The four good friends then began a song, an ancient song of special medicine words. More water was added to the hot rocks. White clouds of steam again filled the air.

Joe closed his eyes and listened to his friends’ songs. Sometimes they took turns, or joined one another as the feeling moved them.

After twenty minutes or so, Joe started to see something in his mind’s eye.

Clouds. White clouds against a deep blue sky. From inside the clouds, something stirred. Joe tried to see what was inside, but could not. Then he relaxed, and watched, and waited.

Very slowly, a large, white bison stepped out of the cloud and looked straight at Joe. The huge animal then looked down, and gestured with his front leg, as if pointing down. In Joe’s vision, he looked down and saw the shape of the continent of North America. The bison then spoke to him.

“See how the land has changed, my brother.”

And Joe saw North America as it was long ago. Thick forests across all of the eastern half of the continent and into the central plains. This was the land long before the Europeans discovered it.

The only humans were the thousands of native tribes, clans, communities, and families. These people had spread and populated the continent from coast to coast, and from the frozen north to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.

This vision triggered many feelings in Joe Bear. Strange feelings were swirling inside him. Sadness, grief, anger. But something else was moving him. The white bison again was looking at him, as if trying to communicate.

Joe tried to focus his vision on the face, the horns, the powerful body of the buffalo. The animal was calm and looked at Joe again, then started to glow, radiating a strange light. It again spoke to Joe.

“My brother, beautiful days are ahead. Nature and the Spirit have brought us along this river of life. Our land will be beautiful again.”

The buffalo was happy, Joe thought. That was a good sign.

The bison then gestured again to him.

“Your friends can help us, brother. They may take us home. Look here and see them.”

As the bison gestured down again, instead of North America, Joe saw a large cloud, swirling gently like a slow-motion cyclone. Inside the circling mass were millions of people. A brilliant golden light was shining on one part of the slowly spinning cloud. Part was in darkness.

“Your friends are here,” the buffalo said, pointing to a small bright spot in the cloud. Joe noticed other points and regions of darkness and light.

Joe had questions.

“How can I help them?”

“Look closer, brother.”

Joe then saw the faces of Tom O’Brien and the others as he did when he spoke to them in San Diego. He remembered looking into the faces sitting around the small table in the JRSG office at Point Loma. Joe heard his own words as he talked to the group about the Code Talkers and World War Two.

Then the scene suddenly changed. Those young people were now in Arizona. Joe could see pine trees. It felt like north central Arizona, south of the Navajo nation, maybe the Apache lands to the south. Or maybe he saw the Four Corners region of the southern Rockies. Maybe Ute country. Joe wasn’t sure, but he somehow felt it was Indian land.

In his vision, he saw Thomas O’Brien and these young people involved in a struggle. He saw danger and heard the sound of weapons. He heard O’Brien call out Joe’s name. Joe saw injured and dead people lying on the floor of a pine forest.

He then heard soothing words.

“All is well, my brother.” It was the white buffalo again. “Do you see?”

Joe then looked down and saw North America, the slow swirling cloud of people, and O’Brien’s people of the JRSG, all in one scene.

The play of light and darkness slowly changed, and the darkness faded away like the dawn of a new day. The swirling of the cloud gently stopped. The cloud and the picture of North America started to glow like the white bison.

Joe slowly opened his eyes. He was laying down in the sweat lodge, his body and the towel beneath him were soaked. His friends were also lying down and silently sleeping, dreaming, or having their own visions. One of his old friends was snoring loudly.

Joe slowly got up and walked outside. It was almost sunset now. A warm and gentle breeze dried some of the moisture from his body and hair. The old man raised his arms above his head and stretched. His old body had many aches from eighty-five years of life.

He drank from a canteen of water nearby and ate from a bag of food that their wives had prepared. One by one, his friends slowly awoke and came out of the sweat lodge to join him.

They passed around the canteen and the bag of food. As the four old men sat in the setting sun and relaxed, they started an informal debriefing. What kind of visions did each have? What was seen or learned?

Each had an unusual dream or vision that day. They compared the messages they had received. They tried to interpret images and words. They revealed to each other what their buddies had a need to know.

Joe told his friends about the bison, and looking at North America as if he were up in space.

The Code Talkers had once again completed an intelligence mission, like the days of their youth in the Pacific.

Safety probably key aspect of UFO disclosure

By Steve Hammons

Public health and safety, national security, as well as human development and survival are probably some of the important elements involved in the evolving public awareness about unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and other forward-leaning studies.

As many researchers, writers and creative media projects have noted, there are many possible issues involved in phenomena such as UFOs, extraterrestrial visitors, unusual creatures and life forms, multiple dimensions, an afterlife, expanded human consciousness, extrasensory perception (ESP), a higher intelligence, time-space anomalies and other topics.

Safety – on many levels – is probably something that should be on the minds of people who are interested or involved in these kinds of subjects.

Many Americans and people internationally include views and beliefs about some of these ideas in their normal worldview. Yet, others might find sudden indications or evidence of such phenomena and realities to be anxiety-causing or disorienting.

Additionally, there could be real and concrete dangers involved in some of these phenomena. As a result, one perspective is that public disclosure of additional information should be handled carefully.

SEVERAL CONSIDERATIONS

Looking specifically at the topic of UFOs (though there may be connections to other edge-science topics noted above), a helpful resource is the down-to-Earth 1992 firefighter manual Fire Officer's Guide to Disaster Control by public safety and firefighting professionals Charles "Chuck" Bahme and William Kramer.

Although the book is primarily a manual dealing with more conventional public safety situations, there is also a well-known chapter titled “Disaster Control and UFOs."

The subsection "Adverse Potential of UFOs" explores specific safety considerations: "The two principal hazards noted with relation to UFOs have been attributed to powerful electrical fields which they can project in a general or localized area and the psychological effects they have produced on the general populace or individual contacts,” according to the authors.

These two areas of concern – physical and psychological – could, as a starting point, also be applied to other kinds of unconventional phenomena. More comprehensive impacts on human culture today and human development in the future are also issues to consider.

National and international security aspects of unusual phenomena are probably also involved. As we know, there are parts of these activities that are public and other aspects that are kept secret, or at least are handled in discreet ways.

For example, there may be intelligence operatives from other countries in your home city or state. Do you read about it in your news outlets or see it on the TV news? Normally, the answer is no.

However, there may be very significant activities behind the scenes by our own intelligence services keeping tabs on foreign spies in our country. By nature, the specifics of these activities are under the radar in terms of the public media. At the same time, if we think about it, we all know that these situations are real and ongoing.

GRASSROOTS PERCEPTION

Although there are legitimate reasons for discreet and secure handling of certain situations, there are also equally important factors involving public knowledge, information and awareness.

This is especially true in a democratic republic like the United States. Here, grassroots citizens are considered a fundamental force and resource.

That said, disseminating information, insight and understanding about certain complex topics may still be challenging for a number of reasons. And, judgments about what information should be made public and what should be held back are subject to various viewpoints.

A factor directly related to the grassroots responsibilities of average people is that knowledge and awareness about many important situations – both conventional and unconventional – rest with each of us.

We are responsible for learning more and handling the information and implications in appropriate ways. Waiting for some governmental agency or group to hand-feed us “disclosure” may not be necessary or even desirable.

Sometimes we must read between the lines.

As several researchers have noted, disclosure on UFOs and other kinds of interesting and surprising developments may come from the grassroots up, not from the top down. Or, these two will work hand in hand.

Maybe a better phrase would be that more disclosure might happen from the inside out.
