I believe in flying saucers, not in UFOs!!

When people ask me if I believe in UFOs, I have a difficult time answering that question.
The best answer that I can think of, when confronted with such a question is "yes, I believe that sightings of UFOs are reported from time to time".
That answer itself, however, is an incorrect answer because it (the fact that sightings of UFOs are reported from time to time) is not a matter of beliefs. It's fact, not fiction.

First of all, UFOs have nothing to do with beliefs.
A UFO simply means an Unidentified Flying Object.

Like it or not, it's a term which was coined by the U.S. Air Force in 1952.
It was a term created with good intention to clarify things.
But on the contrary, it has created misunderstandings and more confusion than ever.
The word has truly "muddied the waters", so to say.

(Here is a comment made on this by an Internet poster: "and the reason the USAF chose the term UFO was they had no intention to admit there were "flying saucers". The USAF always intended that any sightings be placed into cubbyholes of explanations where those who were sighting the UFO simply did not comprehend what natural phenomenon they were admit there were "flying saucers" would be for the USAF to admit the possibility of foreign, or alien, ability to enter our airspace and THEIR inability to prevent it.")

Things were much simpler, especially between 1947 and 1952 when these unknown objects were called "flying saucers" or "flying discs".
It was because the vast majority of such objects sighted then were disc-shaped.
I would venture to say that this is true even today.
(although there have been noticeable reports of sightings of triangular-shaped craft in the past couple of decades or so).

Nevertheless, by a strange coincidence, the vast majority of similar objects reportedly sighted around the world throughout the history of mankind has also been predominantly disc-shaped.

So when people ask me if I believe in UFOs, my answer is "No, I don't believe in UFOs, but I believe in flying saucers".
I wish that people will discontinue to use the word UFOs.

But it is also important to emphasize that just because one believes in the existence of flying saucers, it does not necessarily mean that he or she believes that flying saucers are physical, extraterrestrial spacecraft piloted or maneuvered by physical, extraterrestrial beings from some inhabited planets in distant space.
That should be a separate question.

First of all, in my opinion, no one knows for sure what flying saucers are or where they come from.
This is still a mystery.

There are millions of people who believe in the existence of flying saucers.
In this sense, flying saucers no doubt exist in a level of reality envisioned by the observers.
Anything that mankind imagines floats and exists on a surface of a level of reality envisioned by mankind.
For example, do "elves" exist? Do "demons" exist?
The answer is yes.
Any thought or concept or even a word that originates from a person begins to float and exist on the surface of a plane of reality.
The noticeable level of such reality becomes even greater when more people begin to envision a similar vision.
For example, if there are 500 people who have almost the exact mental picture of a flying saucer, let's say, its dimensions, exact shape, color, etc., that collective picture will begin to occupy a higher and more noticeable level of reality.
In other words, what I am trying to say is that there are many many levels of reality.
Unfortunately mankind only knows one level of reality, i.e., the reality of physical reality.

So, once again, let me clarify my position.
I am not ashamed to say that yes, I am a firm believer in the existence of flying saucers!!


In 1975 I was living in Phoenix, Arizona.
I clearly remember one day in that year receivng from my mother a most interesting letter.
I could see her excitement in that letter.
She wrote to me in that letter saying that about 10 days before, she had distinctively observed a silvery, metallic "flying saucer"-shaped object (with a dome) hovering just above a crowded railway station in Yokohama, Japan.

It was in a broad daylight, around 11:30 a.m..
She described the object incredibly as a typical "flying saucer", just as "flying saucers" have always been depicted in comic books or in Sci-Fi movies.

She said in the letter that it happened when she and her grandson were walking away from the railroad station and walking towards home.
She felt as if "something had told her" to turn around and look back towards the railway station.
And, Lord, behold, right over the station, she suddenly saw this shiny, silverish, metallic, typical "flying saucer" with a dome hovering over!
She immediately pointed to her grandson to turn around and look, and at that very moment, the object was gone........vanished!
The street was filled with people coming from and going to the railway station.
She was so awe-struck that she didn't even notice anyone observing the object.

My mother had always been skeptical and always used to ridicule my serious interest in "UFOs".
(In my childhood years, I had always taken a great interest in "UFOs" or "flying sacuers", as they were called then, ever since my father had told me of his sighting of a strange, greenish "ball of fire" slowly moving over Yokohama bay one summer night in 1947, as he was night-fishing, his favorite hobby of many many years.
He swore that the object seemed as if it were "intelligently controlled" or "intelligently maneuvering".
He said he had never seen anything like it before. My father had passed away in 1982. My mother passed away in 1998.

But getting back to my mother, her amazing sighting totally made her a believer.
Do I believe in her sighting?
By all means, yes.
I have the highest respect for my mother and I totally believe what she said in the letter.
I visited my mother a few years later and she confirmed her sighting exactly as she wrote me.
There is no doubt in my mind that she did see what she said she saw.

Once again, do I believe in the existence of flying saucers?
Yes, no doubt about it.

My true feelings about the UFO phenomenon

In November of 2009, I was interviewed by a visiting artist from Santa Monica, Jeremy Corbell.
Jeremey Corbell also happens to be one of the most knowledgeable researchers on the UFO phenomenon that I have come to know.
The extensive conversation was very casual. It was held at a Starbuck's coffee shop in Albuquerque.
Jeremey is a great interviewer. He knows how to put you at ease. He truly knows how to put you in a relaxed atmosphere.
I have had so many interviews in my life, but this is, by far, the best and most enjoyable one in which I could freely express:

Is a UFO in the background of a Masonic lithograph from 1866?

Here is a fascinating recent discovery made by my friend Jeremy Corbell:

Is a UFO in the background of a Masonic lithograph from 1866?

Jeremy, a brillant artist from Santa Monica, California, visited me here in New Mexico in November of 2009.
He stayed in New Mexico for several months, during which time we exchanged some fascinating information on ufology in general.

The 5 most important propositions regarding the UFO phenomenon

Here are the 5 most important propositions regarding the UFO phenomenon, according to Dr. Jacques Vallee who, in my opinion, is one of the world's foremost authorities on UFOs.

(QUOTE) (from his acclaimed book, DIMENSIONS)

1. The things we call unidentified flying objects are neither objects nor flying. They can materialize, as some reliable photographs seem to show, and they violate the laws of motion as we know them.

2. UFOs have been seen throughout history and have consistently received (or provided) their own explanation within the framework of each culture. In antiquity their occupants were regarded as gods; in medieval times, as magicians; in the nineteenth century, as scientific geniuses; in our own time, as interplanetary travelers. (Statements made by occupants of the 1897 airship included such declarations as "We are from Kansas" and even "We are from anywhere.....but we'll be in Greece tomorrow.")

3. UFO reports are not necessarily caused by visits from space travelers. The phenomenon could be a manifestation of a much more complex technology. If time and space are not as simple in structure as physicists have assumed until now, then the question "Where do they come from?" may be meaningless; they could come from a place in time. If consciousness can be manifested outside the body, then the range of hypotheses can be even wider.

4. The key to an understanding of the phenomenon lies in the psychic effects it produces (or the psychic awareness it makes possible) in its observers. Their lives are often deeply changed, and they develop unusual talents with which they may find it difficult to cope. The proportion of witnesses who do come forward and publish accounts of these experiences is quite low; most of them choose to remain silent.

5. Contact between human percipients and the UFO phenomenon always occurs under conditions controlled by the latter. Its characteristic feature is a factor of absurdity that leads to a rejection of the story by the upper layers of the target society and an absorption at a deep unconscious level of the symbols conveyed by the encounter. The mechanism of this resonance between the UFO symbol and the archetypes of the human unconscious has been abundantly demonstrated by Carl Jung, whose book FLYING SAUCERS makes many references to the age-old significance of the signs in the sky.


I am in totally agreement with Dr. Jacques Vallee.
In fact, this summarizes my personal belief on the entire UFO phenomenon.

This is the reason why, in my opinion, there will be no such thing as DISCLOSURE by the government. Sure, the governments of the world could release ALL files on UFO sightings anytime, if they wish to.
However, just releasing such files will do absolutely nothing, since the public will clamor for the explanations as to what the UFO phenomenon is.

The government is only responsible for explaining things that deal with physical, tangible, solid, empirical evidences as we know them.
Anything else, the government is not in the business of dealing with.

Strange hum reported northwest of Dulce, New Mexico


Here is an interesting item from the PAGOSA SPRINGS SUN newspaper, dated:
October 8, 2009.

Appeared on the Letter to the Editor section
written by Ron Alexander.



Dear Editor:

I thought I would pose a question to drive the Pagosa Springs area residents mad with thought. What is the source of the constant low frequency noise heard from Kenny Flats all the way to Juanita and beyond?

The noise can be heard by most people in their vehicles when the engine is turned off.
Using a low-frequency noise meter, as I used, the noise will show a constant 56 decibels in the C range.

Not all people can hear low frequency, but an example of low-frequency noise is the common home generator that is used throughout the county.

Yet, I believe this is not the source of the noise in the Coyote Park region.
The noise I'm referring to is only heard by about 60 percent of the public and those with bad hearing are blessed from hearing this constant, inescapable noise.

Low-frequency noise caused by gas well compressors stations such as is found at Fawcett Gulch on Colo. 151 can be heard for many miles and will drive people out of their homes.
In the right conditions, such as in desert environments, low-frequency noise produced by these compressors carries for 20 miles.
This noise is the EPA's number-one complaint.

Low frequency is also produced by tunneling machines.
This is what I believe is the source of the noise throughout the region of Archuleta County.
If you doubt the noise exists, go listen for yourself, for I doubt it has gone away.
I think the government is building huge underground complexes in the sandstone bedrock or even under Archuleta Mountain. The noise is 24/7.
If you're a reporter, go ask the local ranchers of the area and residents if they hear the noise.
It's a great mystery worth investigating.
Ron ALexander


Indeed, this is a fascinating report, relevant to the whole Dulce, New Mexico rumors, as well as rumors about southern Colorado's reportedly strange goings-on (cattle mutilations and what not) and even stretching out into the rumors about Denver International Airport's alleged underground complexes and the ongoing huge construction projects next to the airport.
Is there something going on?

It is a well-known fact that from around the late 1980s to the early 1990s, many people in and near Taos, New Mexico began to report similar strange, low-frequency hums. I had made some comments in the mid-1990s that even though the Sandia Laboratories and Phillips Laboratories, (both at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque) were called up to investigate the phenomenon, that perhaps it was the Sandia Laboratories themselves that may have been the culprit, since I had suspected that some type of tunneling projects may have been going on near and under the whole Taos region.

I had also suspected that perhaps Sandia Labs were experimenting with ELF manipulations in that area. But then I began to hear about low humming sounds in the mid 1990s occurring near the coast of California, near such places as Lompoc and even near Vandenberg Rocket Launching Complexes. It was called the mysterious "Pacific Hum".

At this point in time, I still have no definite idea of what the hums could be.
It is a mystery.
