The Mystery of the Drones
Friday June 8th, 2007

Linda Moulton Howe and I have been deeply involved in the mystery of the "Drones," the first pictures of which appeared on the Coast to Coast AM website in May. Subsequently, Linda interviewed "Sylvia" on Dreamland and got pictures from "Mr Smith" in Birmingham, Alabama. She also spoke extensively to him, as she did to "Chad," and is convinced of their honesty.

Throughout the process, I have obtained analysis of the pictures offered, with little success because of the generally low resolution and the proliferation of effects programs more sophisticated than Photoshop that can make virtually undetectable inclusions in still images.

So far, no video of the object has emerged, however, there are now new still pictures on the UFO Casebook website. These images are startlingly convincing, and the only thing that prevents me from declaring that they are real is that special effects are just so sophisticated. However, for the purposes of this journal, I am going to go beyond the question of whether or not they are real and ask another question: if they are real, what might that mean?

Understand, please, this does NOT mean that I'm endorsing these images. I believe Sylvia, Chad and Mr. Smith, but I cannot endorse the images because I cannot, personally and beyond doubt, prove that they are authentic. Prior to seeing the images posted on UFO Casebook, I might have thought that the objects were manmade. But the one that was supposedly photographed in the Big Basin area of Northern California must be enormous. It is not the same as the one shot by Chad or the one shot by Mr. Smith. This is a gigantic device, probably weighing tons, judging from its appearance.

It hangs in the air, exhibiting no aerodynamic qualities, no engines, no means of lift at all. Structurally, it is entirely purpose-built. There is no allowance made at all for its need to stay airborne and to move. This means that its means of propulsion are either not known publicly, or not known to us at all.

The photographs were made from a significant distance and there was haze in the air, and the object's appearance is absolutely consistent with it actually being in the sky, right down to the deterioration of detail that is involved in the tips of the strange "crown" that appears on the top of this and other some of the other objects photographed.

So, if it's a fake, its a very good one, and the wide array of witnesses and variety of photographs would mean an elaborate hoax, which Chad, Sylvia and Mr. Smith--all apparently unconnected and all sounding entirely sincere over hours of conversation--all in collusion and all lying. But what if they aren't lying? Then what's going on? Certainly, nothing like this has ever been seen before. So, one has to ask, if this is not of human manufacture, then does it represent a new presence in our world? And, if so, what might it be doing?

The chances of it being a secret military device were always remote. Now, if the new pictures are real, they are remote to the vanishing point--but still, of course, not impossible. However, I know people who are hard at work on exotic propulsion systems of various kinds, and I have never heard a whisper about anything like this.

In fact, it is so exotic, so strange, its design so 'movie-like,' that, if it is an alien object, then I think it has been intentionally designed to make us think it's a special effect, right down to the writing seen on the object in the Chad photos, with its resemblance to Klingon and some other science fiction movie letterings.

So there is an attempt going on to hide it in plain sight, and this leads me to think that it might indeed mark the arrival of somebody new. I have seen grays appear and disappear before my eyes on numerous occasions. In one multiple witness event that I was part of, one of them appeared beside the bed of a filmmaker who was at my cabin, transformed before his eyes from a little man with a huge head to a creature with the head of a falcon, and then disappeared in a wink.

Some time later, as my son and I returned from the cabin after spending the night in the woods because the house was so crowded with people, we saw a small hooded figure--gray and translucent--come gliding across the porch and down the deck about two hundred feet ahead of us, then dart off into the woods. Meanwhile, the filmmaker and his wife experienced such a burst of heat in their bed that they jumped out of it, thinking that it was on fire. When my son and I arrived in the house, they were standing there in consternation, trying to understand what had happened.

There were two things involved, I believe: suggestion and technology. The transformation of the creature was probably accomplished with masterful suggestion of a kind we can hardly imagine, but which is related to hypnosis. The disappearance, however, must have been carried out via the use of a device that affected local gravity in such a way that it bent light around it while the creature remained concealed inside.

There was a cost, though: the device also enclosed the heat that it was generating, and when the being finally reduced power, he released a lot of that heat, which is why the filmmaker felt it, and why we could see the creature, but as if it was translucent.

Now, these drones exhibit no such cloaking. In fact, they are, collectively and by far the clearest UFO pictures ever made. Could it be that they belong to somebody who possesses advanced means of propulsion, but not invisibility technology, or that they are simply too large for that technology to work? Whatever the answer, they represent a fundamental and material change in the whole UFO phenomenon.

On March 30, I published a journal called Are They Coming and If So What Do We Do in which I said,

"It is possible that the visitors are about to show up. I am not saying that this will happen, but only that this is a time when it could happen, and there are some indications that it may be about to happen."

I then discussed the reasons why this might be about to take place, and suggested that, if it was happening, there would be more developments soon.

It is possible that the drones are the "more developments" and that our response to them is being carefully observed. In a way, that's why I'm writing this. It is an attempt to respond rationally and on all levels available to me--accepting them as a possible human hoax, as possible human secret craft, as something constructed by known alien forms or possibly new alien forms, and as something attempting to hide in plain sight by subtly suggesting itself as a special effect. This about covers the waterfront regarding what the objects might be. As to what they might be doing, that's another matter entirely.

The pictures offered by Chad and Mr. Smith are small objects, probably no more than thirty to fifty feet across. The Maine photos are obvious fakes, made with Photoshop. I could have made them myself. The video of the prototype is a CGI fake, a nice one and a reminder of how easy this is to do. As I said, I am as yet unsure about the Big Basin photos.

What is interesting about all this is the blizzard of fakes and real images involved, almost as if somebody is trying hard to obscure the truth, or rather, to hide it in a maze of confusion and thus defuse its impact. This would suggest to me a sort of social control at work, or even an organized operation.

Some years ago, I wrote a short story called "The Open Doors," which is available to subscribers that explores the last days of a scientist called John Von Neumann, called by the press of his time "the smartest man alive." He died of liver cancer, in great terror.

I was told by General Arthur Exon that Dr. Von Neumann had been an important part of the scientific steering committee that worked on the alien question, and that he had come up with a warning based on his understanding of quantum physics, which was one of the underlying reasons that the US has so adamantly refused to admit that the aliens are real.

I called my story "The Open Doors," because, by reading Dr. Von Neumann's work on the quantum perception problem, I figured out the nature of his warning. I was also aware of this warning from another direction. When Lyndon Johnson was president and Hubert Humphrey was vice president, a briefing was offered to the president on the UFO subject. He was not interested, but Humphrey was given a document, probably similar to the Brookings Report that postulates that the discovery of aliens would be a terrific shock to mankind. However, Humphrey would also have been told that they were already here, and that, in the absence of some sort of acceptance 'tripwire' being triggered on our part, they might be literally unable to fully interact with us.

I believe that Dr. Von Neumann thought that this tripwire would be official recognition, and that, if it happened, it would open a door onto an unknown world that we could never again close. This is why Humphrey, on reading what he had been given, commented that its release would have "unpredictable consequences" and the Johnson Administration took no further interest in the UFO phenomenon.

In its simplest form, the quantum perception problem asks the question, does the observer's presence mediate reality? In other words, if nobody is there to see it, is there anything there to be seen? And, if so, does our general disbelief in aliens, carefully cultivated by our government, literally act as a wall that they cannot scale without expending enormous resources in energy? Probably, nobody knows the answer to that question, which cannot be resolved unless we accept the alien presence--but if we do that and we don't like what we see, then what?

The reason for the secrecy--one of them, anyway--revolves around the unanswerability of that question. Even if Von Neumann's suggestion was only wild speculation, because we can never close the door once it is open, we dare not test his hypothesis by officially admitting that aliens are real and that they are here. This is why I know that all disclosure projects are doomed from the start. The government can't answer the question of whether or not official disclosure will be the tripwire that brings aliens pouring into our lives without doing it, and they are not going to do it without knowing what might happen.

However, if Von Neumann was right and our refusal to acknowledge the aliens --if that's what they are-- as real IS what is keeping them back, then the whole UFO and abduction phenomena are explained as a sort of military operation designed to bypass official denial by creating so many firsthand witnesses that they themselves eventually become the tripwire, and the door opens despite government denial.

And this could be the explanation for the drones. The utter clarity with which we are seeing them means that whoever has been banging against the wall of human perception has made a breakthrough. These photos are clear because so many of us now accept the aliens as real that they can engage in much more substantial penetrations of our reality than ever before, and no matter official denial. If this is true, then this journal, along with all the other material that has been posted, will be regarded as acknowledgment of a communication, and there will be a further response of some kind. It will be clearer and more definite than what we have seen so far, possibly even something that cannot be denied. We shall see.

If the drones are an elaborate hoax, they could have appeared as part of an attempt to undo the damage that has been caused by the UFO wave that began with the United Airline Terminal UFO over O'Hare Airport last year. This 'damage' would be increasing public conviction that UFOs are real, and the purpose of the drones would be to lure investigators into believing the hoax, then reveal it and make them out as fools in the media.

The drones have received little general media attention. Effectively none. But, if they are a hoax, its revelation will get widespread coverage. If there is a partial hoax involved, such as the famous 'Doug and Dave' crop circle hoax, then the hoax part of it will be lovingly featured throughout the media, and the reality thus obscured.

If it's not a hoax but a communication, we might well hear more soon, and it will not be video or more pictures of the drones. That's been done. No, if it is a real communication, a new note will be sounded.

I would suggest you stay tuned.

The Drones Unveiled
Tuesday June 26th, 2007


In my last journal entry, I speculated about the possible meaning of the extraordinary "drone" photos that have recently surfaced. Now a new witness has appeared, "Isaac," who claims to have worked on part of a project that involved the use in partnership of alien technology to create these remarkable devices. But is this true? If it is, then it is obviously very important.

As I have been doing all along, I am going to reserve judgment for now about whether or not the material he has deposited--and for that matter, the whole production of witness testimony and pictures--is a hoax or not. That is not to say that I'm not investigating. I certainly am investigating. But for now, I am going to address the larger issues that arise if we assume that it is NOT a hoax. By this I mean that the witnesses are genuine, the pictures are real, and the material deposited by "Isaac" is authentic.

If it is, then I would say that that a test is under way of our ability to respond in a useful and coherent manner to what is being revealed, and I would like to begin by saying that I have always understood that one of the primary reasons for the secrecy has been that, if the superb technology of the aliens was revealed publicly before its principles were understood, we risked a profound cultural descent, that would result from our focusing ourselves on their greater achievements, and becoming supplicants.

This would mean that we would not be a resource but a burden, and there is no reason to expend all the time, wealth, thought and emotion that are necessary to make contact work, if the only outcome is going to be a failure like this. Therefore, a three-pronged effort was made to engage with us without intervening in a way that would bruise our sense of independence and our self-worth.


The first part of this was the creation of a theater in the sky, that has been ongoing now for many years, and has served to make us aware of the possibility that strangers may be here. The second part was the close encounter phenomenon, which was designed to acclimate us to new ways of thinking and to a culture very different from our own, that arises out of a mind that does not work like the human mind.

This is the part that bleeds off into the darkness of alien abduction, cattle mutilations, and all of that material. Certainly, our visitors are not angels. Indeed, despite their very different minds, they are in some ways quite familiar.

To understand what I am saying here, imagine what might happen if we discovered another planet with intelligent creatures living on it who had never encountered the outside world.

  • First, our anthropologists would demand that we remain hidden so that we would not ruin their chances of studying the local culture.

  • Second, our biologists would demand everything from blood to sexual material. The creatures would be abducted, studied and tagged, just as we do to lions on the wild, and the visitors apparently do to us.

  • Third, there would be exploitation, both officially sanctioned and not so officially sanctioned.

In other words, what we are experiencing at the hands of the visitors is almost a blueprint for what we would almost inevitably do if we were the star-faring species and we were involving ourselves with creatures from another world.

I might also add that really interacting with them would probably be orders of magnitude more difficult than it is for us to interact with dolphins in any way that actually means something on their terms, not ours. We can teach them to play ball and nuzzle tourists, but we cannot speak a word of dolphin. It might be, though, with the precious treasure of another intelligent species, we would want very much to interact with them on terms that would be meaningful to us both, and not just toy with them.

This brings me to Project Caret, and, I am sure, other such projects, and the third and reconciling side of my little triad of contact.

This third part is a kind of melding of the other two, which involves direct contact with the most advanced human institutions available that could also be counted on to keep a secret. Thus large scientific institutions such as universities have been left out of this equation, while defense contractors and military elements are included.

The secrecy was not, and has never been, evil or greedy or arrogant in any way. It has been necessary to preserve us as free and independent beings. It has been abused by those among the visitors who have sought to exploit us, also, I would assume. I can only surmise that the appearance of the drones, and now the release of materials by Isaac, is a new step in the ongoing experiment that we call contact. It has happened now because we have taken a number of steps forward, and are no longer seeing things in quite as provincial a manner as before. We can know that the visitors are real and that they have been in contact with elements of our society for some time, without being confused or deranged by this knowledge.

It is possible that this experiment will involve the general media as well. If so, then it is to be hoped that they approach the situation with the same calm and open-minded attitude that will be exhibited on Coast to Coast, Earthfiles and Unknowncountry, and that the general public will take their cue from you, the members of the public who are already aware of what is really unfolding here, and not from the various hysterics and egoists who will emerge to promote one myth or another.

The visitors are not demons. They are not angels. They have a complex living history just like we do.


They are part of a vast and ancient web which is intelligence in the universe, and I think that this event may signal that it is time for us to attempt another step in the direction of joining ourselves to this great resonance. And none too soon. We need clearance to pass many outsider technologies into the general population, because ways can undoubtedly be found to use them on behalf of the whole species and, ultimately, all the living worlds.

I have learned from firsthand observation just how wonderfully clever the human being is, and how very capable we are of proceeding another step down this road. Of course it will be difficult. It's hard to walk at first, and our weakness has to be respected along with our strength. Our weaknesses are all quite familiar. There are seven of them, and all seven will be playing their roles in our attempt to weave conscious awareness into the web of contact that already penetrates our society on many, many different levels.

But also, our virtues of faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice, temperance and, above all, prudence must be brought to bear by us with care, dignity and determination. We have lived with the visitors among us for a long time. The next step is perhaps for the general population to know that they are here, and for the open scientific culture to begin to take command of some of the technologies that have been made available to us.

It is, at any rate, a goal worthy of hope and prayer, for, if it were to unfold in this way at this time, our children's children will see this as the age of heroes, when they look back on our memory from their vantage in the stars.

All well and good. In my next journal entry on this subject, absent intervening events, I will deal with the possibility that there are one or more hoaxes involved. But it won't come right away. It takes time for investigations like this to proceed, given the care that is needed.

The Drones - Are They Real, and What Do We Do?
Friday June 29th, 2007

There isn't any serious doubt at this point that people are observing strange objects in the sky, most often near certain air force bases. There is also a plethora of computer graphics animations appearing on various video websites. So far, all of this video consists of animations and is not real.

However, the witness reports, such as the one featured on this week's Dreamland, are almost certainly real, and some of the photographs are real, too, quite possibly all of the ones that we and Linda Moulton Howe have posted.

This could be human technology, pure and simple. Perhaps a much more potent expression of electrohydrodynamic propulsion has been deployed and is being tested. There is a very high demand within the intelligence community for low-level, close in monitoring systems that are undetectable, so certainly such technologies are being worked on with high priority.

And then there is the matter of the "Isaac X" posting, which has been so violently attacked by UFO researchers.

Maybe it is a hoax and maybe not, but there is one element of it that isn't a hoax, and this element is of extraordinary value, as you will see.

For this reason, the hoax issue isn't all that important when it comes to this material. Even if Isaac created it entirely out of his imagination, this material is still real, and it is pure gold.

He says on the website he has created for this material:

"They had something akin to a language, that could quite literally execute itself, at least in the presence of a very specific type of field. The language, a term I am still using very loosely, is a system of symbols (which does admittedly very much resemble a written language) along with geometric forms and patterns that fit together to form diagrams that are themselves functional. Once they are drawn, so to speak, on a suitable surface made of a suitable material and in the presence of a certain type of field, they immediately begin performing the desired tasks."

This is correct, and not only that, one of the materials on which these imprints will work is the human brain, and one of the fields that will activate the forms is the electromagnetic field of a living brain.

Now, it is VERY important to realize something before I go on, and to take it into your mind and heart: EVEN IF the entire Isaac production is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be a hoax, and that may happen, the statement above is STILL true. How would a true statement come into a hoax? Quite simply, because the hoaxer is probably a close encounter witness himself, probably in amnesia about his encounters and very disturbed by them, and has dropped information from those encounters into his hoax without even knowing it.

Understand, my gut feeling is that the Isaac material is real. The main objections to it are not convincing, and I will detail why not later in this journal, for those who are interested. But, even if a hoax is proven, please don't throw out the baby with the bathwater, because we all have a chance now to make a major advance, and, for those of us who work hard and effectively, to transform ourselves in fundamental ways.

Always remember this: the visitors have said what is on offer to us. Phillip Corso was told, in no uncertain terms, "a new world, if you can take it." This means that we must wrest it out of the hands of the grays, and also be able to bear it. And I warn you, the more parts of yourself you don't like, the harder the light that it brings will be to endure, because that light drives consciousness deep into the parts of ourselves of which we dare not even speak.

I warn you, but I also seek to tempt you ahead. We can remake our world. The equipment has already been installed. All we need now to do is turn it on.

Let me offer two instances of how the patterning described above works in a human brain. The first of these involves a man called Jose Garcia. I don't believe that this case is referenced on the internet. This is not the Jose Garcia associated with the Ashtar Command material, but a simple farmer in Mexico who had an unusual experience.

A tall man walked up to him in his field one day and showed him a set of symbols, and told him to memorize them, then visualize them while planting his crops. He did this, and after that the crops began growing to record size. The case briefly appeared in Texas papers, and was privately investigated by a Texas sheriff. I assume that it is documented somewhere, but I cannot find it. I'm grateful to one of the people who have worked on this case with me for bringing it up.

A second data point involves long-time close encounter witness Jim Sparks. He recounts an instance of being made to trace a letter "E" when in the presence of a gray, and experiencing unusual physical sensations as he did so. He was told that he was being taught a skill.

What is happening now is that this skill is being offered on a gigantic scale, and it is possible for us to take advantage of it.

First, we have been show, in the drones, some of the equipment that can be constructed using it. What they do, we do not yet know, but I have a thought that some of them, at least, are used in making crop circles.

Understand, I cannot prove any of this, and it is not my intention to do that. It is my intention to continue on the road I've been on most of my life, that stretches into the unknown and arises out of my soul's old long time.

We are all on this road, and to demand the wrong sort of explanations--concrete proof, for example, that none of this is a hoax--is to stand fast instead of continuing the journey. No risk, no gain.

That said, I think that the two fragile indications I have described above, plus Isaac's message, suggest that there may already be a set of patterns, in the form of the crop circles, that we can apply to the material of our brains by memorizing the images and calling them to mind when we need them.

Understand, I have no idea how this will work or even if it will work. But I sense that it will, and that we need to do it, and that by doing so we will create a technology within ourselves that will reconnect us with powerful energies that are intrinsic to the earth, and enable us to reunite with our planet in a journey of healing that might just save this species.

The program is simple enough. It involves going back to images of the early crop circles, and methodically memorizing them and bringing them to mind during mediation and in our everyday lives, and seeing what, if anything, happens.

Obviously, some of the circles we do this with will be authentic and others fake. It isn't important. The fake ones simply won't work and will end up being forgotten.

I believe that the circles are placed near ancient sites of power because these are the fountainheads of whatever energy it is that we seek to reconnect with. Ancient man probably couldn't do as much with these energies as we will be able to, but he knew they were there, and that's why he clustered his places of worship around them.

Most of you might go to a crop circle website or open a book and try this once or twice. Nothing will happen and you'll forget about it. Or you'll wait passively for it to "do" something to you and it won't, and you'll move on. I know you will do this because I am liable to do it, too. When I first started meditating nearly forty years ago, it felt useless. Now, however, it is the foundation of a gigantic second life that penetrates into all sorts of realms. Had I not been meditating, the visitors would never even have found me.

So, I urge you to stay with this new practice. In our subscriber section, I am going to begin a series of sample meditations on the circles, and go on with it as best I am able. In our consciousness, fact and imagination are two different things. We say, "it was just imagination" to dismiss something.

The visitors have a different view of this. They say that imagination creates fact, and it is out of this more correct understanding of reality that their evolution of power forms has arisen.

Because we have not recognized the degree to which the mind actually mediates reality, we are making two mistakes, and one of the reasons that I think that the Isaac material is real is that it very subtly reflects one of these mistakes, which is that the universe is founded on a group of facts that we must discover in order to understand how it works.

In reality, the universe that we live in is founded on the human mind, and our imagination governs the laws of existence as we experience them.

The mistake that was made by the Isaac scientists was to assume that, if only the understood the principles behind the equipment they possessed, they could use it. This isn't completely impossible, but a much more elegant solution is to work backward from what we see the equipment doing, and use our imaginations to determine how something might do that. This way, we adapt our vision of the universe to our understanding of it, rather than slowly and painfully entering somebody else's vision and contorting our own imagination to fit it.

I know that this sounds esoteric, but it actually isn't. In fact, if you want to explore it more deeply, you can turn to the cover story on this week's New Scientist (June 30-July 6, 2007) and read the article "How the Universe Got Its Laws and Our Surprising Role in Shaping Them."

I digress in this way to offer some rationale for why using the crop circles in the manner I describe above will work. How it will work, of what our minds will do to enable it to work I don't know. But, for some of us, it will bring changes that will be in the direction of greater power over ourselves and our world.

We are moving from the age of Pisces to that of Aquarius. The coming of Christ announced Pisces, which is why he is symbolized by the fish. Now, Aquarius has no specific messenger. Aquarius pours out the water in which the fish swam.

In the real world, that water was the earth and the fish is us. The pouring out of the water is the earth becoming unable to support us. Now the fish is left on the dry, hot land. His fish body is not equipped to live here--and that is literally true. Earth is becoming inhospitable. It will not be long before many, many of us die here. Some say, 'we must stop global warming.' Others that it isn't happening. Still others want it to happen because they believe it will bring about their ascent into heaven.

To see how best to do that, we need to examine the fate of a fish out of water, because that's what we presently are. In the distant past, living creatures crept onto the land by inches, over millions of years, evolving with infinite slowness. We have to do it in a single generation. And we can, because we have a tool that the creatures of the past lacked: the mind. The communication that has come to us in the context of this recent sighting group is phenomenal. It is powerful. It is easy to use.

Now I would like to turn to the various objections to the Isaac material. To me, this is not very important, because the useful information has appeared whether a hoax was involved or not. One objection is that there are no classification stamps or notations on the document. However, I have seen formerly sensitive documents that were prepared for upper management at one agency or another that were not visibly classified at all. This was done so that, if they got away, there could be deniability.

Another is that the document is too clear and precise to have been created via computer in 1986. This isn't true, either. There were plenty of systems around that could do it. They were not in home computers, but they could certainly create this document.

A third is that this is all a viral marketing program for Transformers or the latest Halo game or something. Maybe if the production just consisted of pictures and documents, a case could be made for that, but there are now too many witnesses on tape. Are we to believe that a viral marketing campaign has also hired actors to fool Linda Howe?


Whatever this is, it isn't that.
