The Beatles and UFOs

On January 26t, 2014 at the Grammy Awards Ringo Starr again played with Paul McCartney.Meanwhile Yoko Ono watched from the audience. It was a Beatles reunion of sorts.
When it comes to UFOs and the Beatles, most people know about John Lennon's famous UFO

 sighting on August 23, 1974, exactly 8 years to the date of the last Beatles concert in New York City. John mentioned the sighting in the liners notes of the album “Walls and Bridges” he was working on at the time.
On August 23, 1974 at 9:O’clock I saw a UFO – J.L. There’s UFO’s in New York and I ain’t too surprised- As John signs so brilliantly – “Strange Days Indeed. Most peculiar Mama.
It was not the first time Lennon would mention UFOs. In the Lyrics of "Out the Blue" written nine months before the sighting, and believed to be a song about his love for Yoko Ono, with who he was separated, Lennon sang,  "Like a UFO you came to me and blew away life's misery."

Then there are the stories told by Lennon’s one time girlfriend May Pang, who was there during the sighting, that Lennon made drawings of the UFO he and she had seen up close. She added that Lennon was fascinated with the subject of UFOs and had a whole collection of magazines and books. One story says that Lennon subscribed to the British magazine "Flying Saucer Review." Then there are the rumors of another encounter with aliens who came to the apartment door indicating an alien abduction. This story and the story that Lennon told Pang he believed he had been abducted have less evidence to back them up.
McCartney's Flaming Pie Album
One of the stories that is not so well known is the story that Lennon wrote an article to tell the public how the Beatles got their name. Lennon would say that he had a dream on night when a man on a “flaming pie” appeared to him indicating that the Beetles should be spelled The Beatles. According a 1961 article written by then 21 year old Lennon in the Mersey Beat paper, "It came in a vision (when he was 12 in 1952) – a man appeared on a flaming pie and said unto them, 'from this day on you are Beatles with an A.’”
Flaming Pie Drawn by McCartney
Lennon never explained what he meant by the flying pie reference – whether it was a flaming flying saucer or a man who was on an actual flying pie. Most wrote it off as a bit of a joke, despite the fact that the article from the public is there for all to see. In 1997, however, after Lennon had died Paul McCartney put out an album and song called flaming pie. On the album cover is an object that looks much like a flying saucer.
McCartney confirmed that the album has been named after the famous story told by Lennon years before.
McCartney with Owl and Golden Orb on the right.
In another bizarre story McCartney put out a documentary on the making of the flaming pie album called “In The World Tonight.” In the documentary he talks about his arts work showing what looked like the Easter Island statues and believe it or not “an owl on a golden orb.”[1] The significance of this is that orbs are common elements in many UFO accounts and the owl is believed by many as the most common screen image used by aliens to replace their images in the minds of experiencers.
Lennon has always considered to be the UFO Beatle but this is not the case. Less know is the fact that Ringo Starr was very interested in science fiction, extraterrestrial life and the government UFO conspiracy. In a 1969 video interview Starr went on the record talking about how he believed that there was life in outer space, how the government was covering up the UFO situation, and how many inter-dimensional races could actually be here on Earth.
Part of what Starr said in the interview included,
I really can’t believe that this is the only planet with this going on because the law of averages ... George has a great scene where we take Mars and there is no one there, but there is someone on it.

1969 Interview - Starr Talks UFOs

It’s just a different time dimension which we can’t see. It’s like anything. There’s another race going on where the time is just a little different…there could be a hundred races living on just this planet.
Cover of Starr Album "Goodnight Vienna"
Then in 1974 Starr put out an album called Goodnight Vienna. John Lennon wrote the title Song for the album. The album cover is a screen shot from the 1951 flying saucer movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" about aliens that are prepared to destroy the world. It was this movie that inspired President Ronald Reagan’s famous statement “how the world would unite if faced with a threat from an alien race.”
 On the cover Starr replaces his head with that of the alien Klaatu who is exiting the flying saucer. Then Lennon and Starr produced a one minute commercial to promote the album. In the commercial as Lennon narrates Starr gets on a flying saucer that has landed in the middle of the street. The saucer then flies to the roof of Capitol records in Los Angeles where Starr then gets out and waves to the people on the street.

Whatever the truth of the Beatles and UFOs – it is a very strange story.

Drugs and the Alien Influence on Musicians


I would love it if somebody would put the energy into studying the mind and psychedelics to the extent where we could start to talk about these things and somebody could even throw forth a few suggestions as to what might be happening. There's no body of information - we need more research. These are questions that we should be asking, this is the important stuff. Grateful Dead Band Leader Jerry Garcia

One of the many songs that have been identified as a song that may have been influenced by aliens is the 1970 Neil Young song “After the Gold Rush.”

The lyrics talk about a lying in a burned out basement and having a dream where the sun bursts out during the full moon. The lyrics indicate that the world has pillaged the environment and the world is now in trouble – “Mother Nature on the run.” As the title implies the world is at risk of becoming become like a gold rush town on a global scale. The gold will run out and the world will become like a gold rush ghost town. In Young song the silver saucers will then appear and take the chosen ones to another planet – “a new home in the sun.” (There are a number of experiencers who describe a similar rapture type event caused by environmental disaster.)

After the Gold Rush

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights

In armor coming,

Saying something about a queen.

There were peasants singing and

Drummers drumming

And the archer split the tree.

There was a fanfare blowing

To the sun

That was floating on the breeze.

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the nineteen seventies.

Look at Mother Nature on the run

In the nineteen seventies.

 

I was lying in a burned out basement

With the full moon in my eyes.

I was hoping for replacement

When the sun burst thru the sky.

There was a band playing in my head

And I felt like getting high.

I was thinking about what a

Friend had said

I was hoping it was a lie.

Thinking about what a

Friend had said

I was hoping it was a lie.

 

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver

Space ships flying

In the yellow haze of the sun,

There were children crying

And colors flying

All around the chosen ones.

All in a dream, all in a dream

The loading had begun.

They were flying Mother Nature's

Silver seed to a new home in the sun.

Flying Mother Nature's

Silver seed to a new home.

 

 

Neil Young went on to become a strong environmentalist. In a few days, in fact, he is now on a four city concert tour of Canada to raise money for aboriginal groups fighting against the Alberta oil sands development.
The message of the song is similar to many messages brought back by experiencers who feel that the aliens are telling us the ecology is in trouble. They report being shown scenes of massive environmental disaster scenarios. To many experiencers the message is very disturbing and many have become spokesperson for the environment.
Young has stated that he did not know what After the Gold Rush message was. We know this because when Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt recorded it in 1999 for their collaboration trio, they got some unique insight into the song from the man who wrote it. Parton said, "When we were doing the Trio album, I asked Linda and Emmy what it meant, and they didn't know. So we called Neil Young, and he didn't know. We asked him, flat out, what it meant, and he said, 'Hell, I don't know. I just wrote it. It just depends on what I was taking at the time. I guess every verse has something different I'd taken.'"
Young (as did many of the top rock and roll stars) therefore admitted he was doing drugs when he wrote the song and came up with the lyrics. The question therefore is where did the alien and environmental messages come from?
He is not the only one. Jerry Garcia, who like Young was a big environmentalist working to save the rainforest talked about a DMT (known as the spirit drugs because people are often greeted by alien of spirit type beings) experience in which he encountered insect type humanoids. Garcia struggled with drugs his whole life, and in fact died in a drug rehab unit. It was one of his DMT experiences that he came up with the name “Grateful Dead” for the band during an DMT experience. He described his alien DMT experience as follows,
I had some very weird experiences. My main experience was one of furious activity and tremendous struggle in a sort of futuristic, space-ship vehicle with insectoid presences. After I came out of my coma, I had this image of myself as these little hunks of protoplasm that were stuck together kind of like stamps with perforations between them that you could snap off. (laughter)
They were run through with neoprene tubing, and there were these insects that looked like cockroaches which were like message-units that were kind of like my bloodstream. That was my image of my physical self and this particular feeling lasted a long time. It was really strange.[1]
Sting from the band Police tells almost the exact experience. During an ayahausca experience in Brazil  he recounts his hallucinogenic experience in the Brazilian rainforest back in the 80's. He says he had an experience of playing a frightening game of chess with a sensual beautiful insect like "humanoid" being, who played very aggressively. Sting was beaten badly and went on to form the rainforest foundation and has now saved an estimated 28 million acres of rainforest from clear cut destruction.[2]

This experience matches research done by abduction researcher John Mack who wrote a whole chapter in his book "Passport to the Cosmos” about shaman Dr. Bernardo Peixoto who operates in the Brazilian rainforest. Bernardo talks about his experiences in shamanism and how shamans not only contact spirit beings and animal totems and the like, but also how they contact "star people" or people from "outerspace". They do this through their shaman experiences, which include taking hallucinogenic (ayahausca) drugs. Bernardo. like Sting, calls called them "humanoid" and the description matches Sting’s description. Like Sting Bernardo has an interest and commitment to help save the rainforests of Brazil. 

The fourth musician that could be added to these examples is Bob Dylan who is described in Wikipedia as “American musician, singer-songwriter, artist, writer, and an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.” It was Dylan who became the figurehead for the counterculture of the 1960s. His songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin“ became anthems for the US civil rights and anti-war movements in America.

Dylan had a UFO experiencer side as well. Often quoted are the lines from "10,000 Men" from the "Under A Red Sky" album "10,000 women in my room, Spilling my buttermilk, Sweeping it up with a broom." The line can easily be interpreted as a sperm sample being taken.

Then like Young, Sting, and Garcia, Dylan was described as an “enthusiastic consumer of illegal substances. It may have been their role as role models for a 1960s and 1970s counterculture where drugs were seen as part of the glamorous life style of the rock and roll bands.

The last example I will refer to from what is a very long list is John Lennon of the Beatles who did his share of drugs, had at least one close encounter UFO experience that he spoke of in public, was an avid consumer of UFO materials, and was a leader in the social activist counter culture fighting against the war in Vietnam and providing an anthem for the movement with his song ‘Give Peace a Chance.” He also was a strong supporter of the feminist, the importance of love, and civil rights movements.

The Road to a Conclusion

The influence of drugs has always seen as a drawback to having a firm grip on reality. The drug experience is usually referred to as an hallucination implying that it is devoid of reality.

The truth of the situation may be exactly the opposite, especially with DMT which is called the spirit molecule because of the Godlike near death experience qualities to the experience. Terrance McKenna aptly called DMT the ultimate metaphysical reality pill.

The DMT experience (and other drugs used for experience) may actually heighten the scope of reality, opening up levels or realms not visible to the normal physical world as we understand it.

Terrance McKenna who was revered in the drug culture of the last half of the 20th century, spelled out this theory about opening up higher realities when he came up with a theory on how religions were formed. Basically, McKenna stated that in the hunter/gathering days, people would come across psychedelic elements in nature like magic mushrooms which they consumed.

This led to them being exposed to higher levels of reality such and the fact that the material world is an illusion and that there are many apparently non-physical realms. The same awareness can be seen in people who would fall into the “UFO experiencer” category.

In the same way that the four musical artists seemed to have both drugs and an apparent UFO experience stories, they all shared something else with the non-rock and roll experiencers.

Harvard psychiatrist John Mack and the man who set the UFO experiencer movement on fire Whitely Strieber describe an awakening to the environment, the importance of love, and an awakening to various social issues that becomes a driving life force inside the person. They suddenly experience a huge upsurge in subjects like nuclear proliferation, the environmental decline of the world, saving the whales or the ocean, social injustices, and the senselessness of war.

The world of 2014 is totally unlike the world in the 1960s before. The protection of the environment and the fact that each individual’s actions affect the whole of society or the world are now far gone conclusions. African Americans can now use the same washrooms as whites. The nuclear arms race now seems like a stupid idea of our ancestors. Gays are no longer considered individuals who should be converted or locked up, and it is no longer seen as unpatriotic to oppose war.

Rock Star, Environment, and Social Causes

This rise in social consciousness starting in the 1960s was all generated by the young and their musical idols. Looking back it appears that many of those key musical icons had UFO and drug experiences.

The use of drugs by the musicians seemed to allow a break through past the veil and allowed a download of information contained in the universal hologram. (This assumes that the idea that the one of the main elements of the universe is collection of information and that this information, as first proposed by Rupert Sheldrake, is downloadable through what he calls the morphogenetic field. Others might call this the universal consciousness or the akashic record.)

One of the things that they appeared to bring back from the hologram was an increased consciousness on social and environment issues which are issues that are also near and dear to the alien experiencer message as well.  

In doing this article it became apparent that musicians involved in the alien music thing are heavily either strong environmentalists, involved with social issues, or both. Those pushing the alien ideas are also working to end nuclear proliferation (Bono, Bob Dylan), the environmental decline of the world such as the rain forest (Jerry Garcia, Sting, Neil Young, Michael Jackson, Olivia Newton John, Peter Gabriel, Mike Pinder from Moody Blues, Muse),or busy trying to save the whales (Jon Anderson from Yes)  the ocean (Anthony Kiedis from Chili Peppers) or animals (Olivia Newton John, Nina Hagen), social injustices (Young, Lennon, Dylan), the senselessness of war (Young, Lennon, Newton John, Pinder), world poverty (Bono, Gabriel), children (David Bowie), disaster relief (Sammy Hagar, Jon Anderson). Many did the drugs but were at the same time busy saving the world – which leads to the question of whether or not we would have had a rise in environmental and socials concerns consciousness without psychedelic drugs.

Would we have developed increased social justice, less tolerance for war, a world where protection of the environment is a serious consideration in development decisions, and a world where at least in theory love triumphs the need to hate without drugs and extraterrestrial actions? Would the politicians have stepped up to the plate to change the law without the protests of hundreds of thousands of newly enlightened youth on the Washington Mall demanding action?

I think not. So where do we go from here?

I think two critical issues need further study, as both have been grossly or totally ignored in the past. I sense that study in these two critical areas may just provide us the insight into Mark Twain’s quote about the two most important days in a person’s life – the day you are born and the day you find out why.

1.      Controlled research should be made legal into N-Dimethyltryptamine -DMT. This should be done clinically in a strict but open manner, without starting with the premise that the world will come to an end if such research is done. DMT is the key component to test as there are repeated claims that this “spirit molecule” can break through the veil or rip away the filters that separate us from our single layered materialistic reality, giving as some have described 1,000 years of experience in 15 minutes. DMT may provide the password to the internet of ultimate reality.

If the claims are right then this will provide a method of logging into the information and interacting with other angels, entities, and beings that make up the holographic universe. This knowledge can be used to man’s benefit. No study of conscious is complete without a study and discussion of this substance. No full understanding of the UFO phenomena can be complete without an understanding of the universe that this molecule opens up. Here is a documentary describing DMT and the research that has been done.


2.      A careful study should be conducted related to people who claim to have had UFO abduction. At the present moment there have been many regressions but the information is not universally accessible, and it appears that the beliefs of the regressionists are tainting the conclusions.

This new study should center on only one key question that I believe should always be asked in the regression. The question is “at and point in the past did you agree to being part of this abduction experience?” The figures that have been put out by Mary Rodwell and Dolores Cannon indicate that the answer to the question will be 100% yes. This is significant because Rodwell and Cannon have done many thousands of regressions indicating they are developing their conclusions from a very large sampling of data.

I fully believe that getting people to explain why they said yes will end up answering almost every question as to what the UFO phenomena is all about.

PS 

It should be noted that an answer to the reality of the Universe and the UFO phenomena are not a necessity. It is the journey and the lessons we learn along the road that are important. Keep in mind that if the Universe would have considered it important for you to know everything, it would have made those answers available. If the pilots of the UFOs wanted you to know where they are from and what they are doing they would land on the White House lawn and make a speech. As the UFO occupants also told Police Officer Herbert Schirmer  "We want you to believe in us, but not too much..."

These mysteries have been withheld from us. It is part of the overall plan. We were forced to cross Lethe, the river of forgetfulness. We have been cut off from the higher realities, and left in dense physical world with a limited view. Our job is to experience. learn, and earn our way back. We are as described in almost every spiritual tradition in school to learn lessons. They are ours to learn, and as many experiencers have been told by their alien encounters “It wouldn’t be much of a lesson if we gave you the answers.”

The problem comes from the fact that we have been schooled in the western mentality of reality. Because of this we have played the game of consumerism. Now that we have the big house and the two cars we seek more. We are from the materialist west that has severed itself from its spiritual self. We want more and we want it yesterday.

We seek more so like the rich of the 19th century who set up séances as part of their weekly social calendar, or as entertainment to fill the void.

It is the lessons of the journey that matter. It doesn’t matter if we get disclosure or an answer to the UFO phenomena. The Universe and the aliens are preventing disclosure for good reason. What is important is discovering why we were born, what lessons the aliens are here to teach, and how we can use what we learn to make the world a better place for ourselves and others.

I think the important message of the musicians who seemed to experience the world of the UFO occupants and the world of drugs is how they employed what they experienced in to the world. They used what they learned to try and help others through the many causes they supported. Looking at these causes we can learn what is important in life and what things in the world need help from us.


The musicians also brought the message of love, which seems to be the key message both of the Universe and the UFO occupants. The message seems to be there is no time, space, gravity, good, or bad. There is just fear and love and we should move towards love. That is a message that seems to cross the worlds of UFO experience, DMT experience, intense spiritual experiences, and near death experiences. UFO experiencer Troggs band lead singer Reg Presley summed it up in the title of his 1967 “Love is All Around.”

UFO Sightings – Chasing the Illusion

I have just finished giving a lecture on the Alien Disclosure plan where I proposed that much of what has happened in the UFO field over the last 110 years may be nothing more than an illusion presented to us to raise our consciousness about the fact we are not alone in the universe, that we have environmental problems, and that Love and Oneness are they key elements of the Universe.

I started my story by pointing out the wooden blimp type airships of the 1890s which appeared over the United States. They disappeared for good around 1897, to be followed by rocket type objects over the Scandinavian countries in the mid-1930s. Like the airships they came and went to be followed by Foo fighters of WW2 which haunted pilots of both the German and allied forces. The foo-fighters disappeared forever at the end of the war to be replaced green fireballs that appeared over the places where the a-bomb and its explosives were being produced. Like the foo-fighters the government was very interested in finding out what was behind the phenomena, but before they could the foo-fighter and green fireball sightings had gone the way of the dinosaurs.

In 1946 the flying saucer and discs would appear. They would stick around through the rest of
Dave's  Photo New Jersey January 11, 2014.

recorded history up to the present but the falling leaf pattern that they exhibited in the early days would stop. The balls and bumps on the early flying saucers would also disappear.

The late 1940s and 1950s brought stories of saucers dropping down molten metal and angel hair. Today new researchers would be puzzled at the mere mention of such things. The 1950s brought human looking aliens that have messages of nuclear disaster. They too would fade being replaced with contacts with grey aliens stealing eggs and sperm and bring a message of environmental and not nuclear chaos in the world.

The 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s also brought of stories of hundreds of different looking humanoids moving around landed saucers and crafts gathering plant samples or water. They would disappear along with the countless stories of saucers appearing at close range with windows and aliens looking out.

Stories of cars being stalled would come and go, along with one of the biggest collection of reports that has been waved around by researchers to defend the fact that there is physical evidence supporting the UFO phenomena – the ground traces. I and another researchers stood ready in the 1970s to race to the site where a craft would land destroy the vegetation and leave three telltale pod marks. Field training manuals for UFO investigators still teach the proper procedures for dealing with such cases but the equipment is not used and the investigations do not take place. The grounds traces, numbering over 4,000 at their peak have stopped.[1]

Even the long running saucer craft seems to be in trouble. In talking to one investigator handing one of the big UFO databases I was told that triangle crafts are taking over the reports.

The lists of things that have come and gone are endless. The cattle mutilation only started in 1976 hitting a peak in the 70s and 80s. Now today they have not stopped but they are not nearly as frequent. The nests of the 50s and 60s were replaced by the crop circles in 1977. They have continued on unabated probably because it is a phenomena that continues to amaze.

What I discovered in talking to people after my presentation is that many people acknowledge that there may be a component of alien message inside a fancy ever changing box, they are still heavily vested in UFO sightings and that this is much more revealing and important than any possible message that aliens might be sending us.

It occurred to me that that the illusion is “the hook” that whoever is behind UFOs is using to slip the message in the back door.

An analogy that can be used to describe this situation is the person who is amazed and eager to tell his story of seeing a lady being sawed in half on stage and then put back together. A second man listening to the story asked what color the girl’s hair was and gets the reply blond, to which he says, “I saw the same thing six months ago in New Jersey and her hair was brunette.” The two men then initiate a study to find out why.

So it is in the UFO research world where the focus of research has changed from one thing to
Pete's Photo January 19, 2014
another over the years. Those behind the phenomena have changed up the magic tricks every ten years or so and that has keep us interested chasing after the illusion. It becomes so consuming for some they cannot change the channel.

Because we have been chasing the illusion we have understandably gotten nowhere, and this leads to the constant complaint in ufology that we aren’t getting anywhere and the media, government, and scientific world ignore us. Some quit in disgust, only to be dragged back in by some sort of addiction to watching magic tricks.

Many came to me about their impression that they have been given a message, but that may have been because I am the consciousness guy who will listen to such claims. There are also the experiencers who approached me with songs they have written – music that they believe had a helping hand.

I became apparent from this lecture and from others that I have given that people are still in love with the illusion. This is very understandable. The stories range from the latest sighting photos, to the importance of reported triangles, to the latest UFO documentaries and TV shows that are out or being produced.

We love a good story and will resist any attempt to minimize the sighting experience. We love them and like a radio station Top 40 we have our favorites. These favorites are the ones that every new documentary will rehash over and over year after year. There is Rendlesham, Roswell, the Travis Walton abduction, the UFOs over the White House in 1952, the Socorro, New Mexico landing, the Belgian triangles, and the Cash Landrum UFO where then women were seriously injured. They get rehashed because they are popular and they therefore make for a high rated show.

Alien messages, on the other hand, don’t make good TV, and TV after all is all about attracting lots of people to watch so the advertisers will put up money to slip their message into the story. We’d rather watch action, mystery, and a possible end of the world scenario, as opposed to a simple message that reminds us of a harping mother or a Sunday morning sermon.


The time has come to listen to the experiencers who are getting the messages, taking many of the photos, and whose words are pointing us in the direction of the answer.

Is There and Alien Influence on Modern Music?



The easiest way to put it is that they downloaded my brain information. When I was about 19 or 20, they downloaded everything that was in my head. And I caught 'em doin' it! I woke up in the middle of the night, thinkin', 'What's goin' on?' They were like, 'Oh, my god, he's waking up!' But this was all telepathy—there were no words being spoken. And as soon as I woke up—it was probably three o'clock in the morning—my whole room was so bright that I could hardly keep my eyes open. I was wide-awake, I could not move, eyes open, white room, they were still disconnecting—and when they did, it just went 'bang!' Everything went back to normal, back to black. Sammy Hagar, lead singer for Van Halen, a rock group that sold 100 million albums worldwide.


“I woke up one morning and found myself lying on the ground in front of the front doorway of my home, my body half in the house and half in the driveway. I’d woken up in a lot of strange places in my life but this took the case. I slowly got up and went inside for a cup of coffee. As my head cleared, I could recall a strange dream about being inside a spaceship. It didn’t see that weird, since I dreamt about UFOs and aliens from time to time in the past, without ever giving it a second thought. This time, though, seemed different…more real. Maybe because I’d never woken up in the doorway before.

The more I thought about the dream the more vivid it became in my mind’s eye. After breakfast I decided to go outside and look around the yard. I stumbled upon a circular impression in the grass, almost like a giant burn. It appeared to be about thirty feet in diameter, but after inspecting it more closely with a tape measure, it actually turned out to be twenty-seven feet.
27…
My lucky number.
Later in the shower, I checked my body for marks – some sign of having been abducted. But there was nothing strange to be found. By the next day the impression in the grass had disappeared, and I just went about my business like nothing had ever happened. I figured if what I had dreamt about had really taken place, there wasn’t really anything I could do about it.  Ace Frehley, lead singer for KISS, a band that sold 100 million albums worldwide.
As a 12 year old David Bowie believed aliens were visiting him at night to study his habits. In 1969 Bowie contributed to a UFO magazine reporting that he was having six of seven sightings a night for a year. According to the drummer for his band Spiders from Mars Bowie believed aliens were following him around and trying to influence his thoughts. David Bowie has sold over 140 million albums and after almost 50 years remains a top seller of records in the U.K.

Is there an alien influence on music? The following list of songs would indicate something strange is going on.

What makes the possible association even greater is that many top musicians who have sold millions of albums also report many experiences where they see UFOs, or are abducted by aliens, have messages inserted in their heads by aliens, or in a few extreme cases actually claim they are aliens or alien messengers.

Some have suggested that this is just cultural influences of talk about aliens and life on other planets but it is not. The phenomena, for example does not exist in famous golfers. Compared to the hundreds for top musicians there are none for golfers. There are a rare few with top businessmen and politicians.

One of the theories to explain this is that musicians are right brained creative people and therefore are picked for the experience. They are the chicken in the chicken egg scenario. This has a parallel in the UFO world as described by Dr. Roger Leir who is famous for removing reported alien implants. According to Leir, the one common thing with all abductees is that they are right brained creative people.

The alien use of musicians, if true, may also have to do with the fact that musicians are talking to the young in society who have not yet formed a concrete belief system. If the aliens are trying to get a message across or elevate consciousness they would chose young music listeners in the same way that it appears they start their abductions with children. Looking back through history it seems apparent that most of the new ideas that transformed cultural changes came through the youth and through their music. The pattern seems to be that once the music motivates the youth and they protest something that needs changing in the world, the politicians react and change the laws. The youth and the leaders of change and the politicians are just racing to the front once the parade for change gains momentum.

Are we being directed by aliens or some elevated spiritual beings? The answer is tending towards a positive reply.
