"By the 15th day after "rescuing" Airl from the crash site, I was
able to communicate fluidly and effortlessly with her in English.
She had absorbed so much written material by this time that her
academic education far exceeded my own. Although I graduated from
high school in Los Angeles in 1940 and attended college for four
years of premedical and nursing training, the variety of my own
reading had been fairly limited.
I had not studied most of the subjects to which Airl had now been
exposed, especially considering her acute understanding, very
intense study habits and a nearly photographic memory! She was able
to recall long passages from books she read. She was especially fond
of sections of her favorite stories from classic literature like The
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn 46 (Footnote), tales from Gulliver's
Travels 47 (Footnote) and Peter Pan 48 (Footnote) and The Legend of
Sleepy Hollow 49 (Footnote).
By this time Airl had become the teacher, and I was the student. I
was about to learn what men of Earth do not know and have no way of
The throng of scientists and agents who observed us through the
one-way glass of our interview room, whom Airl and I now referred to
as "the gallery", were growing increasingly impatient to ask her
questions. But Airl continued to refuse to allow any questions to be
asked of her by anyone other than myself, even vicariously through
me as an interpreter, or in writing.
On the afternoon of the 16th day Airl and I sat next to each other
as she read. She closed the last page of a book she was reading and
placed it aside. I was about to hand her the next book from a large
pile waiting to be read, when she turned and said or "thought" to
me, "I am ready to speak now". At first I was a little confused by
the remark. I gestured for her to continue and she began to teach me
my first lesson."

Official Transcript of the U.S. Army Air Force Roswell Army Air
Field, 50 9th Bomb Group
SUBJECT: ALIEN INTERVIEW, 24. 7. 1947, 1st
"What would you like to say, Airl?", I asked.
"I have been a part of the
Domain Expeditionary Force in this sector
of space for several thousand years. However, I have not personally
had intimate contact with beings on Earth since 5,965 BCE. It is not
my primary function to interact with inhabitants of planets within
The Domain. I am an Officer, Pilot and Engineer, with many duties to
perform. Nonetheless, although I am fluent in 347 other languages
within The Domain, I have not been exposed to your English language.
The last Earth language with which I was conversant was the Sanskrit
language of the Vedic Hymns. 50 (Footnote) At
that time I was a member of a mission sent to investigate the loss
of a Domain base located in the Himalaya Mountains. An entire
battalion of officers, pilots, communications and administrative
personnel disappeared and the base destroyed.
Several million years ago I was trained and served as an
Investigation, Data Evaluation and Program Development Officer for
The Domain. Because I was experienced in that technology, I was sent
to Earth as part of the search team. One of my duties involved
interrogation of the human population that inhabited the adjoining
area at that time. 51 (Footnote) Many of the people in that region
reported sighting "vimanas" or
space craft in the area. 52
Following the logical extension of evidence, testimony, observation,
as well as the absence of certain evidence, I led my team to the
discovery that there were still "Old Empire" ships and well-hidden
"Old Empire" installations in this solar system of which we had been
You and I were unable to communicate in your language because I,
personally, have not been exposed to your language. However, now
that I have scanned the books and material you provided me this data
has been relayed to our space station in this region and processed
by our communications officer through our computers. It has been
translated into my own language and relayed back to me in a context
that I can think with. I have also received additional information
from the files stored in our computers about the English language
and Domain records concerning Earth civilization." 53 (Footnote)
"Now I am prepared to give you certain information that I feel will
be of great value to you. I will tell you the truth. Although truth
is relative to all other truth, I wish to share with you as honestly
and accurately as possible, truth as I see it, within the boundaries
of my integrity to myself, to my race and without violating my
obligations to the organization I serve and have sworn to uphold and
"OK", I thought. "Will you answer questions from the gallery now?"
"No. I will not answer questions. I will provide information to you
that I think will be beneficial to the well-being of the immortal
spiritual beings who comprise humanity, and that will foster the
survival of all the myriad life forms and the environment of Earth,
as it is a part of my mission to ensure the preservation of Earth.
"Personally, it is my conviction that all sentient beings are
immortal spiritual beings. This includes human beings. For the sake
of accuracy and simplicity I will use a made-up word: "IS-BE".
Because the primary nature of an immortal being is that they live in
a timeless state of "is", and the only reason for their existence is
that they decide to "be".
No matter how lowly their station in a society, every IS-BE deserves
the respect and treatment that I myself would like to receive from
others. Each person on Earth continues to be an IS-BE whether they
are aware of the fact or not."
(MATILDA O'DONNELL MACELROY PERSONAL NOTE)
(I will never forget this conversation. Her tone was very
matter-of-fact and emotionless. However, for the first time, I
sensed the presence of a warm and real "personality" in Airl. Her
reference to "immortal spiritual beings" struck me like a flash of
light in a dark room. I had never before considered that a human
being could be an immortal being.
I thought that status or power was reserved solely for
the Son, and the holy Ghost. And, because I am a devout Catholic and
subject to the word Jesus, and the holy Father, I have
never thought of a woman as an immortal spiritual being either -
not even the holy mother Mary. Yet, when Airl thought that thought,
I became vividly aware for the very first time that she, personally,
was an immortal spiritual being, and so are we all!
Airl said that she sensed that I was confused about the idea. She
said she would demonstrate to me that I am also an immortal
spiritual being. She said, "Be above your body!" Immediately, I
realized that I was "outside" of my body, looking down from the
ceiling at the top of my body's head! 54 (Footnote) I was also able
to see the room around me, including Airl's body sitting in the
chair next to my own body. After a moment, I realized the simple,
but shocking, reality, that "I" am not a body.
In that moment a black veil lifted and for the first time in my
life, and for a very long time into the past, I realized that I am
not "my soul", but that "I" am "me" a spiritual being. This was an
unexplainable epiphany, but one that fills me with a joy and relief
I cannot recall having experienced ever before. As for the
"immortal" part, I do not understand her meaning, as I have always
been taught that I am not immortal - a spirit, perhaps - but
certainly not immortal!
After a moment - I'm not sure
how long - Airl asked me if I had a
better understanding of the idea. Suddenly, I was back inside my
body again, and said out loud, "Yes! I see what you mean!".
I was so taken aback by the experience that I had to get up from my
chair and walk around the room for a few minutes. I made an excuse
that I needed to get a drink of water, and go to the restroom, which
I did. In the restroom I looked at my "self" in the mirror. I used
the toilet, refreshed my make-up, and straightened my uniform. After
10 or 15 minutes I felt more "normal" again and returned to the
After that I felt as though I was no longer just an interpreter for
Airl. I felt as though I was a "kindred spirit". I felt like I was
safe, at home, with a trusted friend or family member, as close as
any I have ever had. Airl sensed and understood my confusion about
the concept of "personal immortality".
She began her first "lesson"
with me by explaining this to me."
(OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT OF INTERVIEW CONTINUED)
"Airl told me her reasons for coming to Earth and for being in the
area of the 509th Bomber Squadron. She was sent by her superior
officers to investigate the explosions of nuclear weapons which have
been tested in New Mexico. Her superiors ordered her to gather
information from the atmosphere that could be used to determine the
extent of radiation and potential harm this might cause to the
environment. During her mission, the space craft was struck by a
lighting 55 (Footnote), which caused her to lose control and crash.
The space craft is operated by IS-BEs who use "doll bodies" in much
the same way that an actor wears a mask and costume. It is a like a
mechanical tool through which to operate in the physical world. She,
as well as all of the other IS-BEs of the officer class and their
superiors, inhabit these "doll bodies" when they are on duty in
space. When they are not on duty, they "leave" the body and operate,
think, communicate, travel, and exist without the use of a body.
The bodies are constructed of synthetic materials, including a very
sensitive electrical nervous system, to which each IS-BE adjusts
themselves or "tune in" to an electronic wave length 56
that is matched uniquely to the wavelength or frequency emitted by
Each IS-BE is capable of creating a unique wave
frequency which identifies them, much like a radio signal frequency. This serves, in part, as identification like a finger print. The
doll body acts like a radio receiver for the IS-BE. No two
frequencies or doll bodies are exactly the same.
The bodies of each IS-BE crew member are likewise tuned into and
connected to the "nervous system" built into the space craft. The
space craft is built in much the same way as the doll body. It is
adjusted specifically to the frequency of each IS-BE crew member.
Therefore, the craft can be operated by the "thoughts" or energy
emitted by the IS-BE. It is really a very simple, direct control
system. So, there are no complicated controls or navigation
equipment on board the space craft. They operate as an extension of
When the lightning bolt struck the space craft this caused a short
circuit and consequently "disconnected" them from the control of the
ship momentarily which resulted in the crash.

expeditionary force which is part of a space opera 57 (Footnote)

civilization controls a vast number of galaxies, stars, planets,
moons and asteroids throughout an area of space that is
approximately one-fourth of the entire physical universe!
continuing mission of her organization is to "Secure, control and
expand the territory and resources of The Domain".
Airl pointed out that their own activities were very similar in many
ways to the European explorers who "discovered" and "claimed" the
New World for The Holy Father,
The Pope and for the kings of Spain,
Portugal and later, Holland, England, France and so forth.
benefited from the property "acquired" from the native inhabitants.
However, the native inhabitants were never consulted with or asked
for their permission to become a part of the "domain" of European
nations and the soldiers and priests they sent to acquire territory
and wealth in order to advance their interests.
Airl said she read in a history book that the Spanish king regretted
the brutal treatment of the native inhabitants by his soldiers. He
feared retribution from the gods he worshipped, as described in the
various testaments of the Bible. He asked the Pope to prepare a
statement called "The Requirement" 58 (Footnote) which was supposed
to be read to each of the newly encountered native inhabitants.
The king hoped that the statement, whether it was accepted or
rejected by the natives, would absolve the King of all
responsibility for the resulting slaughter and enslavement of these
people. He used this statement as justification to confiscate their
lands and possessions by his soldiers and the Pope's priests.
Apparently, the Pope, personally, did not have any feelings of guilt
or responsibility in the matter.
Airl thought that such actions were those of a coward and that it is
no surprise that the territory of Spain
was diminished so quickly. Only a few years later the king was dead
and his empire had been assimilated by other nations.
Airl said that this sort of behavior does not occur in The Domain.
Their leaders assume full responsibility for the actions of The
Domain, and would not denigrate themselves in this fashion. Nor do
they fear any gods or have any regret for their actions. This idea
reinforces my earlier suggestion that Airl and her people are
In the case of the acquisition of Earth by The Domain, the rulers of
The Domain have chosen not to openly reveal this intention to the
"native inhabitants" of Earth until a later time when it may, or may
not, suit their interests to reveal themselves. For the present
time, it is not strategically necessary to make the presence of The
Domain Expeditionary Force known to Mankind. In fact, until now, it
has been very aggressively hidden, for reasons that will be revealed
The asteroid belt near Earth is a very small, but important location
for The Domain in this part of space. Actually, some of the objects
in our solar system are very valuable for use as low-gravity "space
stations". They are interested primarily in the low gravity
satellites in this solar system which consists mainly of the side of
the moon facing away from Earth 59 (Footnote) and the asteroid belt,

a lesser degree, Mars and Venus.

Once an area of space is acquired by The Domain and becomes a part
of the territory under its control, it is treated as the "property"
of The Domain. The space station near the planet Earth is important
only because it lay along a path of The Domain expansion route

everyone in The Domain is aware of this -except for the people of
46 "... Adventures of Huckleberry
"Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884) (often shortened to Huck
Finn) by Mark Twain. The book is noted for its innocent young
protagonist, its colorful description of people and places along
the Mississippi River, and its sober and often scathing look at
entrenched attitudes, particularly racism. The drifting journey
of Huckleberry Finn and his friend, runaway slave Jim, down the
Mississippi River on their raft may be one of the most enduring
images of escape and freedom in all of American literature."
47 "... Gulliver's Travels ..."
"Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially Travels
into Several Remote Nations of the World, in Four Parts. By
Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several
Ships, is a novel by Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on
human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary
sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a
classic of English literature.
The book became tremendously popular
as soon as it was published (John Gay said in a 1726 letter to
Swift that "it is universally read, from the cabinet council to
the nursery"), and it is likely that it has never been out of
print since then. The book presents itself as a simple
traveller's narrative with the disingenuous title Travels into
Several Remote Nations of the World, its authorship assigned
only to "Lemuel Gulliver, first a surgeon, then a captain of
48 "...Peter Pan..."
Peter Pan is a character created by Scottish novelist and
playwright J. M. Barrie (1860¬1937). A mischievous boy who flies
and magically refuses to grow up, Peter Pan spends his
never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of
Neverland as the leader of his gang the Lost Boys, interacting
with fairies and pirates, and from time to time meeting ordinary
children from the world outside.
Barrie never described Peter's appearance in detail, leaving
much of it to the imagination of the reader and the
interpretation of anyone adapting the character. He describes
him as a beautiful boy with a beautiful smile, "clad in skeleton
leaves and the juices that flow from trees".
Peter is mainly an exaggerated stereotype of a boastful and
careless boy. He is quick to point out how great he is. Peter
has a nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude, and is fearlessly
cocky when it comes to putting himself in danger. Barrie writes
that when Peter thought he was going to die on Marooner's Rock,
he felt scared, yet he felt only one shudder run through him
when any other person would've felt scared up until death. With
his blissful unawareness of the tragedy of death, he says, "To
die will be an awfully big adventure".
Peter's archetypal ability is his refusal to grow up. Barrie did
not explain how he was able to do this, leaving the implication
that it was by an act of will.
Peter is a skilled swordsman, with the skill to rival even
Captain Hook, whose hand he cut off in a duel. He has remarkably
keen vision and hearing. Peter Pan is said to be able to do
almost anything. Peter has an effect on the whole of Neverland
and its inhabitants when he is there. Barrie states that the
island wakes up when he returns from his trip to London. Peter
is the leader of the Lost Boys, a band of boys who were lost by
their parents, and came to live in Neverland. He is friends with
Tinker Bell, a common fairy who is often jealously protective of
49 "...The Legend of Sleepy
"A short story by Washington Irving contained in his collection
The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., written while he was
living in Birmingham, England, and first published in 1820. With
Irving's companion piece "Rip Van Winkle", "The Legend of Sleepy
Hollow" is among the earliest American fiction still read today.
The story is set circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry
Town, New York, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. It
tells the story of Ichabod Crane, a lanky schoolmaster from
Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt,
the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel,
only daughter of a wealthy farmer.
As Crane leaves a party at the Van
Tassel home on an autumn night, he is pursued by the Headless
Horseman, supposedly the ghost of a Hessian trooper who lost his
head to a cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the
American Revolutionary War and who "rides forth to the scene of
battle in nightly quest of his head." Crane disappears from
town, leaving Katrina to marry Brom Bones, who was "to look
exceedingly knowing whenever the story of Ichabod was related."
50 "...Sanskrit of the Vedic
"Sanskrit (sa sk ta vak,
for short sa sk
tam) is a classical language of South Asia, a liturgical
language of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, and one of the
23 official languages of India.
Its position in the cultures of South and Southeast Asia is akin
to that of Latin and Greek in Europe and it has evolved into, as
well as influenced, many modern-day languages of the world. It
appears in pre-Classical form as Vedic Sanskrit, with the
language of the Rigveda being the oldest and most archaic stage
preserved. Dating back to as early as 1500 BCE, Vedic Sanskrit
is the earliest attested Indo-Aryan language, and one of the
earliest attested members of the Indo-European language family.
The corpus of Sanskrit literature encompasses a rich tradition
of poetry and drama as well as scientific, technical,
philosophical and religious texts. Today, Sanskrit continues to
be widely used as a ceremonial language in Hindu religious
rituals in the forms of hymns and mantras. Spoken Sanskrit is
still in use in a few traditional institutions in India, and
there are some attempts at revival.
The scope of this article is the Classical Sanskrit language as
laid out in the grammar of Panini, around the 4th century BCE."

interaction with the human population that inhabited the
adjoining at that time."
-- Editor's Note: (The western borders of Pakistan include the
Khyber Pass and Bolan Pass, traditional invasion routes between
Central Asia. The closest civilization using Sanskrit at the
date and nearest the location of "The Domain Base" would have
been in the foothills of the Himalayas. This was the in the area
of "Mehrgarh", an early beginning of the Indus Valley
civilization which has been recently excavated.)
"(Bolan Pass (Urdu: درہ بولان) is a mountain pass through the Toba Kakar
Range of mountains in western Pakistan, 120 kilometers from the
Afghanistan border. Strategically located, traders, invaders,
and nomadic tribes have also used it as a gateway to and from
the South Asia.)
The Khyber Pass, (also spelled Khaiber or Khaybar) (Urdu: درہ
(altitude: 1,070 m, 3,510 ft) is the mountain pass that links
Pakistan and Afghanistan. Throughout history it has been an
important trade route between Central Asia and South Asia and a
strategic military location.

Civilization. "Discoveries at Mehrgarh changed the entire

Afghanistan, eastern Iran, the Balochistan hills and the Indus

western edge of the Indus valley, where, around 2500 BC, a large
urban civilization emerged at the same time as those of
Mesopotamia and the ancient Egyptian empire. For the first time
in the Indian subcontinent, a continuous sequence of
dwelling-sites has been established from 7000 BC to 500 BC. The
chalcolithic people of Mehrgarh also had contacts with
contemporaneous cultures in northern Afghanistan, northeastern
Iran and southern central Asia.
in April 2006, it was announced in the scientific journal Nature
that the oldest (and first early Neolithic) evidence for the
drilling of human teeth in vivo (i.e. in a living person) was
found in Mehrgarh. According to the authors, their discoveries
point to a tradition of proto-dentistry in the early farming
cultures of that region. "Here we describe eleven drilled molar
crowns from nine adults discovered in a Neolithic graveyard in
Pakistan that dates from 7,500 to 9,000 years ago."

or space craft in the area.."
"A vimana (Sanskrit: fasra) is a mythical flying machine,
described in the Sanskrit epics. The predecessors of the flying
vimanas of the Sanskrit epics are the flying chariots employed
by various gods in the Vedas.
The first flying vimana mentioned in Hindu mythology:

excellent car going everywhere at will.... that car resembling a
bright cloud in the sky... and the King [Rama] got in, and the

The Rigveda does not mention Vimanas, but verses RV1.164.47-48
have been taken as evidence for the idea of "mechanical birds":
"Dark the descent: the birds are
golden-coloured; up to the heaven they fly robed in the
waters. Again descend they from the seat of Order, and all
the earth is moistened with their fatness."
"Twelve are the fellies, and the wheel is single; three are
the naves. What man hath understood it?

"translation", these verses become:

stamghas (pillars), one wheel, three machines, 300 pivots,

wealth, but was later stolen, along with Lanka, by his
half-brother, the demon king Ravana.
One example is that the Asura Maya had a Vimana measuring twelve
cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels. Apart from
'blazing missiles', the poem records the use of other deadly
weapons. 'Indra's Dart' (Indravajra) operated via a circular

Many other terrible weapons are described in the Mahabharata,
but the most fearsome of all is the one used against the Vrishis.
The narrative records:
"Gurkha flying in his swift and
powerful Vimana hurled against the three cities of the Vrishnis
and Andhakas a single projectile charged with all the power of
the Universe. An incandescent column of smoke and fire, as
brilliant as ten thousands suns, rose in all its splendour. It
was the unknown weapon, the Iron Thunderbolt, a gigantic
messenger of death which reduced to ashes the entire race of the
Vrishnis and Andhakas."
53 "I have now scanned all of the
books and material you provided me. This has been processed
through the computers of the space station in this region,
translated into my own language and relayed back to me."
Editors Note -- Apparently Airl is able to "scan" something she
sees through the lenses of her "doll body" eyes, upload the data
to a computer on the "space station", have it processed and
downloaded to her? Or, maybe she does it telepathically? This is
not clarified anywhere in the transcripts or notes.
54 "... I was "outside" of my body,
looking down from the ceiling..."
"An out-of-body experience (OBE),
is an experience that typically involves a sensation of
floating outside of one's body and, in some cases,
perceiving one's physical body from a place outside one's
body (autoscopy). About one in ten people has reported
having an out-of-body experience at some time in their
lives. It is claimed that those experiencing an OBE
sometimes observe details which were unknown to them
The first extensive scientific
study of OBEs was made by Celia Green (1968). She collected
written, first-hand accounts from a total of 400 subjects,
recruited by means of appeals in the mainstream media, and
followed up by questionnaire. some 80% reported feeling they
were a 'disembodied consciousness', with no external body at
Another form of a spontaneous OBE occurs during a near death
experience (NDE). The phenomenology of an NDE usually
includes physiological, psychological and transcendental
factors (Parnia, Waller, Yeates & Fenwick, 2001) such as
impressions of being outside the physical body (an
out-of-body experience), Typically the experience follows a
distinct progression, starting with the sensation of
floating above one's body and seeing the surrounding area."

physics, wavelength is the distance between repeating units of a
propagating wave of a given frequency. It is commonly designated
by the Greek letter lambda (λ). Examples of wave-like phenomena
are light, water waves, and sound waves. In a wave, a property
varies with the position.
For example, this property can be
the air pressure for a sound wave, or the magnitude of the
electric or the magnetic field for light. The wavelengths of
frequencies audible to the human ear (20 Hz–20 kHz) are between
approximately 17 m and 17 mm, respectively. Visible light ranges
from deep red, roughly 700 nm to violet, roughly 400 nm (430–750
THz). For other examples, see electromagnetic spectrum."

57 ..."space opera" civilization"...
"It was not until the 1920s that the space opera proper appeared
in the pulp magazines Weird Tales and Amazing Stories. Unlike
earlier stories of space adventure, which either related the
invasion of Earth by extraterrestrials, or concentrated on the
invention of a space vehicle by a genius inventor, pure space
opera simply took space travel for granted (usually by setting
the story in the far future), skipped the preliminaries, and
launched straight into tales of derring-do among the stars. The
first stories of this type were J. Schlossel's The Second Swarm
(Spring 1928) in Amazing Stories Quarterly and Edmond Hamilton's
Crashing Suns (August-September 1928) and The Star Stealers
(February 1929) in Weird Tales .
Similar stories by other writers
followed through 1929 and 1930; by 1931 the space opera was
well-established as a dominant sub-genre of science fiction. The
transition from the older space-voyage story to the space opera
can be seen in the works of E. E. "Doc" Smith. His first
published work, The Skylark of Space (August-October 1928,
Amazing Stories), merges the traditional tale of a scientist
inventing a space-drive with planetary romance in the style of
Edgar Rice Burroughs; but by the time of the sequel, Skylark
Three (August-October 1930, Amazing Stories) which introduces
the space faring race of the Fenachrone, Smith had moved closer
to a space opera mode.
Space opera in its most familiar
form was a product of 1930s-40s pulp magazines. Like early
science fiction in general, space opera borrowed much of its
style from established adventure, crime, and thriller genres.
Notable influences included stories that described adventures on
exotic or uncivilized frontiers, e.g. the American West, Africa,
or the Orient.
The imagined future of space opera
included immense space liners, intrepid explorers of unknown
worlds, pirates of the space ways, and tough but incorruptible

Hamilton, John W. Campbell, and Jack Williamson in the 1930s and
1940s were popular with readers and much imitated by other
writers. By the early 1940s, the repetitiousness and
extravagance of some of these stories led to objections from

at the prospect that God might become angry at him for all the
murder, theft and mayhem he endorsed in the New World. So, he
persuaded Pope Alexander VI to sanction an official proclamation
intended to dissolve the stain of bloody culpability from the
King's own immortal soul.
This document, called "The
Requirement", was supposed to be read, whether translated into
the native language of the inhabitants or not, to the citizens
of every foreign nation just prior to their conquest. The gist
of the proclamation was to inform the soon to be vanquished that
their lands were being "donated" to Spain.
The Requirement read, in part:
"I, (name of the Conquistador),
servant of the high and mighty Kings of Castile and Leon,
conquerors of barbarian peoples, and being their messenger
and Captain, hereby notify and inform you... that God Our
Lord, One and Eternal, created Heaven and Earth and a man
and a woman from whom you and I and all the multitude
begotten from these over the past five thousand and some
years since the world was made ...
And so I request and require
you... to recognize the Church as your Mistress and as
Governess of the World and Universe, and the High Priest,
called the Pope, in Her name, and His Majesty (the King of
Spain) in Her place, as Ruler and Lord King ... And if you
do not do this... with the help of God I shall come mightily
against you, and I shall make war on you everywhere and in
every way that I can, and I shall subject you to the yoke
and obedience of the Church and His Majesty, and I shall
seize your women and children, and I shall make them slaves,
to sell and dispose of as His Majesty commands, and I shall
do all the evil and damage to you that I am able.
And I insist that the deaths and
destruction that result from this will be your fault."
One of the first to hear The
Requirement were the chiefs of the Maya, whose scale of time for
the creation of life on Earth did not begin a mere 5,000 years
earlier, as suggested by the Pope, rather the Mayan measured
original creation in millions of years by the astronomical
calendars they kept, which tracked the solar year accurately to
within a few seconds a year. Their comment upon hearing The
Requirement was, "The Holy Father has indeed been generous with
The Requirement was originally intended as a response to
complaints by Spanish clerics that the wars against the Native
American peoples were unjust. Comparing them to Spain's wars
against the Moors, the clerics claimed that Muslims had
knowledge of Christ and rejected Him, so that waging a Crusade
against them was legitimate. In contrast, wars against the
Native Americans, who had never come into contact with
Christianity were unacceptable.
The Requirement was intended as a
legal loophole to place the native population in the position of
having rejected Christianity. It stated:
"We protest that any deaths that
result from this [rejection of Christianity] are your
Many critics of the conquistadors'
policies were appalled by the flippant nature of the
Requirement, and the priest, Bartolomeo de Las Casas, said in
response to it that he did not know whether to laugh or to cry.
While the conquistadors were encouraged to use an interpreter to
read the Requirement, this was not absolutely necessary, and in
many cases, it was read out to an uncomprehending populace. In
some instances, it was read to barren beaches and empty
villages, long after the natives had fled, to prisoners after
they were captured, or even from the decks of ships once they
had just spotted the coast.
Nevertheless, for the conquistadors,
it provided a religious justification for attacking and
enslaving the native population, and because of its potential to
enrich the coffers of Spain, the Requirement was not generally

"According to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong the aliens have
a base on the Moon and (the aliens) told us in no uncertain
terms to get off and stay off the Moon!
Sound far fetched?
Milton Cooper, a Naval Intelligence Officer
tells us that not only does the Alien Moon Base exist but the
U.S. Naval Intelligence Community refers to the Alien Moon Base
as "Luna," that there is a huge mining operation going on there,
and that is where the aliens keep their huge mother ships while
the trips to Earth are made in smaller "flying saucers".
LUNA: The Alien base on the far side of the Moon. It was seen
and filmed by the Apollo astronauts. A base, a mining operation
using very large machines, and the very large alien craft
described in sighting reports as mother ships exist there.
Did Apollo 11 Encounter UFOs on the Moon? from the Book "Above
Top Secret" by Timothy Good.
According to hitherto unconfirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong
and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after their historic
landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember
hearing one of the astronauts refer to a "light" in or on a
carter during the television transmission, followed by a request
from mission control for further information. Nothing more was
According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio
hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed
NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
NASA: What's there? Mission
Control calling Apollo 11...
Apollo: These "Babies" are huge, Sir! Enormous! OH MY GOD!
You wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other
spacecraft out there, lined up on the far side of the crater
edge! They're on the Moon watching us!
In 1979, Maurice Chatelain, former
chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that
had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater.
encounter was common knowledge in NASA," he revealed, "but
nobody has talked about it until now."
Soviet scientists were allegedly the first to confirm the
incident. "According to our information, the encounter was
reported immediately after the landing of the module," said Dr.
Vladimir Azhazha, a physicist and Professor of Mathematics at
Moscow University. "Neil Armstrong relayed the message to
Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching
them after having landed near the moon module. But his message
was never heard by the public-because NASA censored it. "
According to another Soviet scientist, Dr. Aleksandr Kazantsev,
Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the
module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went
outside. Dr. Azhazha claims that the UFOs departed minutes after
the astronauts came out on to the lunar surface.
Maurice Chatelain also confirmed that Apollo 11's radio
transmissions were interrupted on several occasions in order to
hide the news from the public. Before dismissing Chatelain's
sensational claims, it is worth noting his impressive background
in the aerospace industry and space program. His first job after
moving from France was as an electronics engineer with Convair,
specializing in telecommunications, telemetry, and radar. In
1959 he was in charge of an electromagnetic research group,
developing new radar and telecommunications systems for Ryan.
One of his eleven patents was an automatic flights to the Moon.
Later, at North American Aviation, Chatelain was offered the job
of designing and building the Apollo communications and
Chatelain claims that,
"all Apollo and Gemini flights
were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite
closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin-flying
saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name.
Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission
Control, who then ordered absolute silence."
He goes on to say:
"I think that Walter Schirra
aboard Mercury 8 was the first of the astronauts to use the
code name 'Santa Claus' to indicate the presence of flying
saucers next to space capsules. However, his announcements
were barely noticed by the general public.
It was a little different when James Lovell on board the
Apollo 8 command module came out from behind the moon and
said for everybody to hear:
'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT
THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.'
Even though this happened on
Christmas Day 1968, many people sensed a hidden meaning in
Rumors persist. NASA may well be a
civilian agency, but many of its programs are funded by the
defense budget and most of the astronauts are subject to
military security regulations. Apart from the fact that the
National Security Agency screens all films and probably radio
communications as well. We have the statements by Otto Binder,
Dr. Garry Henderson and Maurice Chatelain that the astronauts
were under strict orders not to discuss their sightings. And
Gordon Cooper has testified to a United Nations committee that
one of the astronauts actually witnessed a UFO on the ground. If
there is no secrecy, why has this sighting not been made public?
A certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was engaged
in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium.
Professor: What REALLY happened
out there with Apollo 11?
Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known
there was a possibility, the fact is, we were warned off!
(by the Aliens). There was never any question then of a
space station or a moon city.
Professor: How do you mean "warned off"?
Armstrong: I can't go into details, except to say that their
ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology
- Boy, were they big!... and menacing! No, there is no
question of a space station.
Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally-NASA was committed at that time, and
couldn't risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick
scoop and back again.
Armstrong confirmed that the story
was true but refused to go into further detail, beyond admitting
that the CIA was behind the cover-up.
Reasonable activity of an alien civilization showed up
unexpectedly close to us. We were not ready for it
We still can come across publications trying to find an answer
to the question: Are we alone in the universe? At the same time,
presence of reasonable creatures has been detected just close to
our home, in the Moon. However, the discovery was immediately
classified as secret, as it was so much incredible that even
could shake the already existing social principles, reports
Russia's newspaper "Vecherny Volgograd."
Here is an extract from the official press-release:
"NASA scientists and engineers
participating in exploration of Mars and Moon reported
results of their discoveries at a briefing at the Washington
national press club on March 21, 1996. It was announced for
the first time that man-caused structures and objects had
been discovered on the Moon."
The scientists spoke rather
cautiously and evasively about the functioning objects, with the
exception of UFO. They always mentioned the man-caused objects
as possible, and pointed out the information was still under
study, and official results would be published later.
It was mentioned at the briefing as well that the Soviet Union
used to own some photo materials proving presence of reasonable
activity on the Moon. And although it wasn't identified what
kind of reasonable activity it was, thousands of photo-and video
materials photographed from the Apollo and the Clementine space
station demonstrated many parts on the lunar surface where the
activity and its traces were perfectly evident. The video films
and photos made by U.S. astronauts during the Apollo program
were demonstrated at the briefing.
And people were extremely surprised
why the materials hadn't been presented to the public earlier.
And NASA specialists answered:
"It was difficult to forecast
the reaction of people to the information that some
creatures had been or still were on the Moon. Besides, there
were some other reasons to it, which were beyond NASA."
Specialist for lunar artifacts
Richard Hoagland says that NASA is still trying to veil photo
materials before they are published in public catalogues and
files, they do retouching or partially refocus them while
copying. Some investigators, Hoagland is among them, suppose
that an extraterrestrial race had used the Moon as a terminal
station during their activity on the Earth. The suggestions are
confirmed by the legends and myths invented by different nations
of our planet.
Ruins of lunar cities stretched along many kilometers, huge
transparent domes on massive basements, numerous tunnels and
other constructions make scientists reconsider their opinions
concerning the lunar problems. How the Moon appeared and
principles of its revolving around the Earth still pose a great
problem for scientists.
Some partially destroyed objects on the lunar surface can't be
placed among natural geological formations, as they are of
complex organization and geometrical structure. In the upper
part of Rima hadley, not far from the place where the Apollo-15
had landed, a construction surrounded with a tall D-shaped wall
was discovered. As of now, different artifacts have been
discovered in 44 regions.
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Houston Planetary
Institute and specialists from the bank of space information are
investigating the regions. Mysterious terrace-shaped excavations
of the rock have been discovered near the Tiho crater. The
concentric hexahedral excavations and the tunnel entry at the
terrace side cant be results of natural geological processes;
instead, they look very much like open cast mines.
A transparent dome raised above the
crater edge was discovered near the crater Copernicus. The dome
is unusual as it is glowing white and blue from inside. A rather
unusual object, which is unusual indeed even for the Moon, was
discovered in the upper part of the Factory area. A disk of
about 50 meters in diameter stands on a square basement
surrounded with rhombi walls. In the picture, close to the
rhombi, we can also see a dark round embrasure in the ground,
which resembles an entry in an underground caponier. There is a
regular rectangular area between Factory and the crater
Copernicus which is 300 meters wide 400 meters long.
Apollo 10 astronauts made a unique picture (AS10-32-4822) of a
one-mile long object called Castle, which is hanging at the
height of 14 kilometers and casts a distinct shadow on the lunar
surface. The object seems to be consisting of several
cylindrical units and a large conjunctive unit. Internal porous
structure of the Castle is clearly seen in one of the pictures,
which makes an impression that some parts of the object are
As it turned out at the briefing
where many NASA scientists were present, when Richard Hoagland
had requested originals of the Castle pictures for the second
time, no pictures were found there at all. They disappeared even
from the list of pictures made by the Apollo 10 crew. Only
intermediate pictures of the object were found in the archives,
which unfortunately don't depict the internal structure of the
object. When Apollo-12 crew landed on the lunar surface, they
saw that the landing was observed by a half-transparent
It was hanging just several meters
above the lunar surface and shimmered with all rainbow colors
against the black sky. In 1969, when the film about astronauts
traveling to the Sea of Storms was demonstrated (the astronauts
saw the strange objects once again, which were later called
“striped glasses”), NASA finally understood what consequences
such kind of control could bring.
Astronaut Mitchell answered the
question about his feelings after a successful return the
“My neck still aches as I had to
constantly turn my head around because we felt we were not
alone there. We had no choice but pray.”
Johnston, who worked at the Houston
Space Center and studied photos and video materials done during
the Apollo program, discussed the artifacts with Richard
Hoagland and said, the NASA leadership was awfully annoyed with
the great number of anomalous, to put it mildly, objects on the
Moon. It was even said that piloted flights to the Moon could be
banned in the programs network. Investigators are especially
interested in ancient structures resembling partially destroyed
The orbital shooting reveals an
astonishingly regular geometry of square and rectangular
constructions. They resemble our terrestrial cities seen from
the height of 5-8 kilometers. A mission control specialist
commented on the pictures: “Our guys observed ruins of the Lunar
cities, transparent pyramids, domes and God knows what else,
which are currently hidden deep inside the NASA safes, and felt
like Robinson Crusoe when he suddenly came across prints of
human bare feet on the sand of the desert island.” What do
geologists and scientists say after studying the pictures of
lunar cities and other anomalous objects?
They say, such objects can't be
natural formations. “We should admit they are artificial,
especially the domes and pyramids.” Reasonable activity of an
alien civilization showed up unexpectedly close to us. We were
not ready for it psychologically, and some people hardly believe
they are true even now."
