Introduction To Alien Bedtime Stories
Despite this lack of interest to overthrow the government over the UFO issue, the general population is still interested. In a 2002 Roper poll 48% say they believe that UFOs have visited the earth in some form over the years. How significant is that number? It is 300% higher than the number of people who believe in the random (power-ball) theory of evolution that says there is no God and everything in nature is an accident caused by random mutations in DNA over billions of years. The random theory of evolution is forced learning to our children in school, whereas the UFO proponents have no government or private financial support to promote their theory. Yet, it is clearly evident that the UFO horse is winning the race for the minds of Americans.
In investigating why this might be so it occurred to me that the UFO message is getting promoted through storytelling. There are people who tell others what they have seen, or file a sighting report with some of the private groups that gather this material. The groups in turn promote the stories through their lectures, writings, and private documentaries. The biggest influence for promoting the ‘UFOs are here’ idea comes from the mass media. This does not mean that they believe what they are putting out. They are simply chasing the bucks, and there are bucks in UFOs when it comes to the media. Time and time again you will see UFO documentaries being broadcast during sweeps week when the number of viewers will determine the advertising rate and thus the bottom line. The UFO stories are usually put out as tales told in a TV reality show, or
movie. Most of the time the networks and studios revert to the same handful of
UFO stories that have drawn in the audiences before and can probably do it
again. These stories that have been repeated time and again over the years,
include the Travis Walton abduction, the Betty and Barney Hill abduction, the
1997 Phoenix Lights sightings, the Rendlesham Forest story of a USAF officer
actually touching a craft that landed outside the base, the over flight of the
White House twice in July 1952, and the Lonnie Zamora - Socorro, New Mexico,
One of the intentions with this book then is to simply play the game. Just put down some stories that I have researched over the years that might interest the public. The core stories are ones that I have told in lectures or have written about in other forums. Most of these stories that I put out were read or heard by very few people. That is because the UFO research world is very small. For example, I usually take a few months to put a lecture together and the usual audience for it when I present it is less than 100 people. The biggest audience might be 1000 people. This is almost no one when we consider that there are over seven billion people in the world.
The other intention for this book is to document history. I make it a regular practice to tell the audiences I speak to that they should document their UFO story. The UFO story, despite the negative scientific dogma critical of it, is perhaps the most important story in history. If UFO stories were games then the UFO story would be the World Cup of all stories. Those who are not sure that this is the case should be made aware of some of the leading research into UFOs, which indicates that the UFO story seems to be tied into question of what is ultimate reality. These questions arise when researchers concede that something is here. As the phenomena does not mesh with our present physical reality it leads to the question of what aspects of reality do we have wrong. What laws of reality do we need to understand to come to grips with what we are seeing? The messages received by contactees, and high level officials stating that ESP is tied into the phenomena, led to questions related to the hard consciousness problem. Is the mind separate from the brain as this phenomena and high level officials seem to be saying?
The UFO mystery is therefore an area of research that will lead to most of the breakthroughs related to technology, consciousness research and religious understanding in the next 100 years. The general population, however, does not have the time to chase these research challenges. They are wrapped up in living their personal lives. They spend long days at work, and most of their free time is spent driving their kids to extracurricular activities, interacting with their children, spending time with their spouse, going out to movies or sporting events, or just unwinding in front of the TV with their favorite show. There is not a whole lot of time left after all this to delve into the implications of the UFO mystery.
In light of a busy day for most people in the modern world, this book provides an opportunity to tell a bit of the UFO story and its possible important implications for the world in a 5-10 minute bedtime story. Even one story at bedtime a couple times a week will help to raise the general consciousness of the public. A rising consciousness is the key because all major new ideas introduced into the world have come after many years of seemingly wasted time. Once a sufficient number of people become aware of the reality, like a teeter-totter, will shift and the idea will suddenly become consensus reality. The shift in all cases comes slowly.
This shifting reality can be seen by just time shifting back 150 years. It was generally accepted in
was ok for people to own black slaves, and it was a no-brainer that they should
not be allowed to use the same washrooms as the whites. Those who think that consciousness
changes over night should consider that until 1978, The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints ( America ) had a policy
which prevented most men of African descent from being ordained to the church's
lay priesthood or from participating in some temple ordinances. LDS
Looking back 150 years it was a general belief by both men and women that only men should be allowed to vote. Women had limited access to education. Women’s place was in the home, and not in the work force. It was their job to make babies and raise the family. They were subservient to their husbands. Who would dare say that in public today? Calls for gay rights 150 years ago were unheard of. Those participating in male homosexuality were convicted of sodomy which was a serious felony and often a capital crime. There were still many who believed that such people should be executed. Female homosexuality was unheard of (During the obscenity trial in 1928 for the first lesbian novel written by Radcliffe Hall called, ‘The Well of Loneliness,’ the judges asked to have lesbianism explained in court, so that the jury would know what it was). Gay marriage was an issue that took even longer until the public consciousness changed. It was not until 2012, that Rush Limbaugh, the voice of conservative
, said it was over and that
the conservatives should let them have it. The problem is that people want
change yesterday, because they live in the world of instant gratification.
Consciousness does change, but it doesn’t happen overnight. A look at any
political or social movement over 150 years will drive that point home. America
It is my hope that the following tales will raise consciousness and entertain at the same time. If either is achieved my 40 years of chasing this amazing mystery will not have been in vain.
