Read about the astonishing lifetime encounters of John Foster

This is a true story about one man’s encounters with UFOs over a period of 46+ years. It involves physical contact and other dimensional contact with mysterious beings, crafts and objects. As hard as it might be to believe, it was obvious the beings (some appearing to be human) normally reside somewhere beyond the veil of the visible.

This man was virtually never alone when the encounters occurred. One or more relatives, friends and/or strangers normally accompanied him. The encounters occurred at all times of the day and night, but normally from noon to midnight…from coast to coast and from Canada To Mexico. However, most occurred in Middle America. It all began shortly after his birth in 1937.

The story is supported by some witnesses and what the author/experiencer believes is an enormous number of facts and happenings that extend from the depths of prehistory into his personal modern life and more broadly into our modern human culture. This includes phenomenal occurrences reported through our major religions and folklore, including those historic tales of the tribal people of the entire World. The story is further supported through implications suggested via new discoveries in science…in psychoanalysis, in parapsychology, in modern physics and quantum mechanics. It is a very complex and lengthy story that can help lead to profound answers to the many questions related to all of these fields and other traditional  fields of study and understanding.

However, for one to understand the many mysteries of UFO phenomenon, an open mind is simply a critical  must…i.e. the personal characteristic of “openness,” but an openness accompanied by a sincere sense of logic, discernment and judgement.

The following passage came to the author as he began to write Chapter Six in his second book, To Earth From Heaven…a book that reveals some of the mysteries underlying normal human existence on Planet Earth. The words just came to his mind spontaneously, in a flowing manner, as if they were being dictated by someone unseen who normally resides somewhere beyond the veil of the visible.

The beginning of Chapter Six in the book, To Earth From Heaven:    Chapter Six – Openness

‘If I can open my heart and mind, as the river of life flows, the currents move through me — I am the river.

If I am closed and empty, I simply float the currents of time, the torrid streams — I am merely a modest bobber gliding upon the surface of the living waters. The river takes me where it goes.

If I am closed and full, I sink like a rock to the muddy cold bottom and the river flows over.

I am all of these in different ways, at different times, in different places.

Openness is required of us, by “them,” the mysterious UFO intelligences, if they are to help humankind……so they say.’                               ……….John Foster

A true story that affects our sciences, religion and history

This is a very complex, astonishing, lengthy true story conveyed very sincerely by the experiencer, through the three books above.

As above, it is a story about one man’s encounters with UFOs over a period of 46+ years, a story that affects all of humankind from its very beginning. It especially involves “mysterious intelligences” who have been active clandestinely, multidimensionally,  other-dimensionally and physically…in prehistory, in ancient history and in modern history. It involves close contact with human and nonhuman entities who utilize unidentified crafts and objects in their quest to control, enhance or guide the destiny of our modern human culture.

Please note, this website has been drawn down to a minimum. The details and comprehensive information that were here possibly will be included in a new book that will be offered as a companion to the three books above. (A brief explanation about the story is provided below.)

A part of this story is supported by several credible witnesses and what the author believes is an enormous number of supporting facts and happenings.

It is suggested that you read the books in order: 1)  Eminent Discovery Illustration Picture Book, 2)  Eminent Discovery, 3) To Earth From Heaven

When I was young

001Hearing “the voice” for the first time:
“When I was very young, about two or three years old, I sometimes would play on the sidewalk, at the corner, in front of our house. And at times I felt excruciating forces on my body and mind. I could hardly move. Hearing roaring sounds above me, I struggled to look upward. I sometimes saw the craft (disc-shaped craft) hovering and moving slowly several yards above me in the fog or haze. And I sometimes heard a voice talking, at times to me about something I could not understand. After I gain control again, I would run to the house to tell my mother.

These mysterious, shocking episodes were only a part of the very unusual beginning of my entire lifetime that was peppered, for more than 46 years, with three dimensional and multidimensional contacts of mysterious crafts and beings that arrived strangely and physically from the unknown…from another place, beyond our time and space”……..John

Comments concerning the story

Throughout the past 29 years, John has been questioned and evaluated by numerous professionals in various fields, including but not limited to the following renown personalities.

“The story of John Foster is a remarkable one.” “In the years that I’ve know John, I have not found him to be delusional or to have psychotic episodes.” “In the course of my career as a psychologist, John Foster’s story of his interface with anomalous phenomena (UFOs) is one of the most interesting that I’ve followed. It is also quite consistent. In the eleven years that I’ve known John, I have heard him speak to selected audiences and I have asked him to review many of his experiences. His retelling of the many incidents have not deviated from the first times that I heard them.”  —————— Fowler Jones, PhD, former Psychologist for the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, renown psychologist now in private practice and Director of The Psychic Studies Institute…also Board of Directors of “The Monroe Institute.” Fowler has written “The Psychological Opinion” in the book Eminent Discovery.

“The books can be viewed as a journal of many UFO experiences; as an autobiographical account of a UFO contactee; and as a commentary on the personal and transpersonal aspects of  UFO activity” “…I do know that John has shown courage and determination in sharing with us his doubts and anxieties, his joys and successes, and his view about the possible significance of UFO experiences. His discovery is a lesson to us all; his commitment to self understanding, and his compassion for others who are experiencing UFO encounters, is an inspiration to us all.
I invite the reader to join John Foster on his journey–and our journey–of Eminent Discovery.” ——————————————————————————— R. Leo Sprinkle, PhD, Professor Emerius Director and Chair of Counseling Services University of Wyoming, renown psychologist now in private practice, UFO researcher and founder of “UFO contactee studies” since the 1950s. Leo has written the “Foreword” in the book Eminent Discovery.

 “To say that John Foster encountered the Great Mystery throughout most of his life is a gross understatement.”  “…this 75-year-old retired engineer is going to rock your world.”————– Bob Teets – best selling author, investigative journalist, researcher, editor, publisher – former representative of the Human Potential Foundation. Bob has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

“…It was truly the start of an adrenaline rush that would propel me through several years of UFO research and interviews with some 3,000 ‘experiencers’ all over the country. None would be so intriguing, so absolutely riveting, bizarre, far-out, instructive, challenging and representative of the entire UFO phenomenon as John Foster’s incredible story, though.” —————— Bob Teets

“…though I interviewed hundreds of UFO experiencers during the few years of the (Human Potential) Foundation’s existence and later, no one came close, not within a mile, of the mind-blowing, enigmatic, utter fantastic, incredible narrative of this humble man from Lincoln, Nebraska. His is the ultimate UFO story and, like the phenomenon itself, it is next to impossible to wrap your head around it.” “Few researchers are willing to tackle John Foster, for he defies categories, eschews classifications, turns their theories upside down.” —————————————————————————————– Bob Teets

“Let me say this…I began with Eminent Discovery, and even though you declare it a ‘report’ it kept me up way past my bedtime last night. I’m drawn in by the information…it’s compelling and sincere.”     “…I believe both presentations (Eminent Discovery and To Earth From Heaven) were compiled with taste and variety. I thoroughly enjoyed both.”————————————  Donna Henriksen, PhD – researcher, Professor Emeritus English and Rhetoric Ball State University. Donna has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

“Believe me, this is one of the most important stories that UFO experiencers have to offer – I think he was inspired to write To Earth From Heaven for our benefit, for the benefit of all truth seekers.” ———————————————-  Donald Ware, MS – fighter pilot, scientist, nuclear engineer, teacher, birder, researcher, former regional Director of MUFON, board of directors of the International UFO Congress Convention. Don has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

 “This is a work that had to be done and John Foster is the one doing it.”    “John, I think you have the most remarkable set of drawings. Your posting looks great. I think you have a fantastic story and would like to see it get a lot more attention.” ————————————————————————————– Wendell Stevens – renowned UFO researcher since the 1940s, author and World-wide lecturer, Board of Directors of the International UFO Congress Convention, former military officer. Wendell is now deceased, but has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

“John’s story …serves as an inspiration to the many millions of persons around the World who have lived with the constant knowledge that they too are somehow connected to the mysterious beings who travel in the amazing vehicles we call UFOs.” ——————————————————————————  Francisco J. (Joe) Lewels, PhD – independent researcher & free lance writer, distinguished pilot, editor, publisher, author of the landmark book, The God Hypothesis…all with many honors. Joe has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

Concerning the book, Eminent Discovery“An engineer and methodical, reasonable thinker encounters unbelievable and extraordinary experiences of UFO and extraterrestrial contact. Worth every penny from cover to cover. From the simple glimpses of the odd and unusual to what Foster describes as ‘complex experiences’ which is an understatement. You get it ALL in this heartfelt and thought-felt book. The ridicule factor is alive and well in both UFOlogy and the skeptics point of view. But nowhere will you find such extraordinary experiences written from the perspective of a reasonable person who is so careful to think on both sides.”    “Foster recounts experiences as both an observer and participant and is careful to let you know exactly what are the objective sides of the story (some of which are corroborated by witnesses) and the subjective side, i.e. what are his suppositions, impressions, guesses, etc. This is a rare treatment on the subject of UFOs and alien encounters. It will leave you pondering the plasticity of the human mind, trying to discern what is an altered state of consciousness, what is ‘real’ and what seems to be an amalgam of both. There is pure motive for truth and understanding in this book. Highly recommend.” ——————————————————————————————– Steve Snodgrass, prominent UFO researcher, primary MUFON type investigator of John’s story, mental health practitioner, author of papers advancing the investigation of UFO phenomenon to a new level.

Concerning the book To Earth From Heaven“Imagine you’ve been overwhelmed with direct phenomenological experiences of UFOs, extraterrestrials, religious and Native American spirituality that scientists, psychologists and mythologists cannot explain…experiences that seem to suggest an extraordinary reality underlying everything you have come to know and believe as ‘truth.’ In other words imagine your world, as postmodern philosophers have tried to suggest, has become completely deconstructed. No one has the answers. And those who do try to explain it simply reject the entirety of your story as fantasy and too impossible to imagine. How can you piece together a glimpse into discovering what these intricately complex UFO/Extraterrestrial experiences mean and what they might have to do with the nature of physical reality and consciousness itself?”     “John Foster does just that in this book. He will touch base with some of his complex experiences, and then journey into philosophical inquiry to imagine how in the world what he experiences can make sense. This is not a book of instruction. It is a book of questions, of inquiry, and hypothesis to describe things most people would rather sit back and avoid. In other words, you can take the ‘red pill’ and remain content in the reality you’ve constructed and have been conditioned to see. Or you can buy this book and take the ‘blue pill’ and see a universe much more like the matrix than you are afraid to admit. Have courage. John Foster has plenty of it.”Steve Snodgrass

 “It was early in 1986 when our lives began to unravel, through his recollection of the Bethany Grade School playground encounter. And in the fall of 1986, John not so calmly told me of his on-going memories of an enormous number of experiences that had occurred throughout his life. I couldn’t understand how it could all be true, but I knew John was honest and not imaginative. Because I knew John didn’t lie, if he said it was true, I knew it must be true. If he says it’s real, it is real.”—————————————- Annie Foster, John’s wife and fellow traveler. Annie has written an opinion/contribution in “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery.

Concerning Eminent Discovery Illustration Picture Book — “Beautifully illustrated with hand drawn pictures of the abducted artist author. Very easy read. It’s a companion volume for the text story but complete enough to have a general understanding of this abductee’s experience.” ———————– Fernando Abruna

Concerning the book To Earth From Heaven — “The author provides detailed versions of his memories. I did not have the patience to get to the bottom lines. I have heard him speak in person, along with his family members. I believe he is truthful.”  ———————— Linda Kress

Concerning Eminent Discovery Illustration Picture Book —  “Eclectic and penetrating personal examination of a very complex phenomenon. The exceptional illustrations really helped add another dimension of strangeness to the high strangeness within.” ———————————————- Gerald J. Gaura 

Concerning the book To Earth From Heaven — “Astounding!!!  John Foster’s experiences and his conclusions are a must read for anybody whose interested in UFOs, spirituality, metaphysics, and the development of the human species and the universe. This book is not to be taken lightly as John uses logic and profound insight into the “why” of our existence. In a world of superficial and amoral mindset, it is refreshing to hear the new truth of the future and in essence, John brings new hope for our acceptance into the inter-dimensional, inter-galatical, and inter-spiritual community.”  ————————————– Mikes

John Mack (now deceased), Phd, MD, Pulitzer Prize Winner, former professor of Harvard University, who was a renown psychiatrist, UFO researcher and world-wide lecturer invited John and another UFO “contactee” to be a part of his lectures to the University of Missouri Medical Center, to the University of Kansas Medical Center, and to the general public…all in Kansas City one weekend in the 1990s. They with others spent the weekend together, periodically discussing John’s personal UFO contacts among other things, a courtesy arranged by  Dr Fowler Jones. After a full day of conversation, John Mack told John Foster that he had no reason to believe he was in anyway psychotic or imaginative, that he believed John Foster’s interpretations of his own UFO encounters. They both, along with Fowler Jones were featured in a five day news cast series on Channel 4 TV of Kansas City.

Statements from witnesses

(See Appendix B in the book Eminent Discovery for complete statements from the witnesses below.)

10, Chadron Pk, men coming down from object“Alright, I’ve just talked to John about what I saw, and what we recalled at Chadron Park, on the first part of this tape. And now John has taken some sketches, which he never showed me before. He showed me the sketch of what he recalled (at Chadron Park), and basically it’s the same thing I recalled. And it wasn’t because I saw the sketches ahead of time; I saw the sketches after we talked this over. Now I’m looking at the sketch, right now, and it’s the same thing that I recall. Now, he includes some figures in the sketches, which might have been there that I didn’t recall, because I stared, all the time, up at whatever was in the air…I wasn’t paying much attention to what was going on on the ground, and I know there were some other children there that had run around and stuff, and some people around…But basically the sketch is what I recalled and I told John about this before he showed me the sketch. So that’s pretty good verification so far as we seeing the same thing.” ————————————————————————————— Bob Collingsworth (pseudoname), witness of a “Chadron State Park encounter. (Actually, Bob picked this drawing out from a stack of 30 or 50 while I was out of the room. Bob’s full account of this Chadron State Park encounter is in Appendix B” of the book Eminent Discovery.)

6, Dillion Lk, kids and craft out over lake“And once I started really trying to recall what really went on, I remembered seeing some shapes out in the water. Ah. All I could see was, like, the dark area – no detail I don’t remember. But I remember two shapes. One of them was kind of flat and long. And I do remember seeing something that looked like headlights on the flat long shape. And I remember seeing a tall rectangular type shape. And I remember yelling at my sister to come down and hurry to see what was going on out here, or else she was going to miss it.” —   “I remember my brother and I being out over the water, and I remember us laughing. It was a free-fall feeling. And I remember looking down at the water and I remember the feeling of turning somersaults. You know, airless. And we were having a really good time, my brother and I. And I remember a voice telling us we had to come back. And I remember, maybe like three times in a row, this voice telling us we had to come back.” ———————————— Karen Beaman, youngest daughter concerning the sighting of UFO craft and a shared “out-of-body experience” with her brother and John out over the water during our lengthy 1975 family UFO encounter at Dillon Lake in Colorado.   (Karen’s full account of this Dillon Lake encounter and other sightings is in “Appendix B” of the book Eminent Discovery.)

6, Dillion Lk c.g, craft over sm tent“And later one night, what I thought was a helicopter came in and shot a spotlight on our – actually first shot a spotlight down in the hollow. It moved around the whole clearing, as if it were looking for something. And there was a little blue pup tent down there. We hadn’t seen anybody, but there was this little tent down there and we saw the spotlight shining down on it – like we thought maybe they were looking for an ex-con or something. And the light stopped on the blue tent. It was up there above the trees.
And then, it came back up the hill to the campground. And I remember getting butterflies in my stomach or something. And it just hovered over our camping spot. And I remember being really afraid, looking around to see where you were. And a light was shining down and there was a voice coming out of it.
And I can’t remember what they said. But, as I was thinking about it later, I realized there was not wind, there was no helicopter noise. I don’t remember any kind of noise or anything, but I remember the voice – it was a man’s voice, kind of a deep man’s voice. And he was talking directly at us, like having conversation with us, which we thought was kind of weird. And we thought it was a helicopter, some kind of helicopter, and he was talking with dad.
I don’t remember anything about what it said. I think it was asking questions, about something – that’s all I remember. The weirdest thing about it is that I don’t remember anything blowing around or any helicopter noise, you know, roaring or anything like that. The voice sounded really close and clear.
And I wish I could remember what it said, but I can’t. I felt like I was just terrified. But I was confident, because I thought you had it under control; you were talking to it. I remember it was all very polite, or, kind of business-like. You know you were talking to them, making them accountable for why they were shining their light into our campground. The voice had a lot of authority to it. And he wasn’t talking mean or harsh or commanding or anything like that.
The feeling that I had was that he was just gathering information. I was watching you to see how you were reacting and you were very calm. You were on guard. You were calm and you had a smile on your face part of the time. You were talking with just as much authority with the guy in the – whatever it was. I mean I thought you were talking with him as a peer, you know”   — “And I remember seeing the fog.” Kindra Foster, oldest daughter, concerning the sighting of  a brilliant UFO craft and she and I speaking with “the voice” coming from the craft during our lengthy 1975 family UFO encounter at Dillon Lake in Colorado. (Kindra’s full account of this Dillon Lake encounter and other sightings is in Appendix B” of the book Eminent Discovery.)

6, Dillon Lk c.g, walking toward booth“What I saw, you know, thinking about it and visualizing it, there was a line of guys, little guys – I want to say, four feet tall – They’re going out to the woods, toward the lake – I don’t know how far in the woods they’re going, because I can’t see them after they go into the woods. They’re going into the woods and they’re (each) carrying some sort of box. It’s a box, I don’t know, about two feet wide, by a foot high, a foot deep. And I don’t know what it is. — They’re coming back from wherever they’re going to the ship.
…The figures themselves… Also, one of them walked toward me. … As I’m sitting there behind a tree, there seems to be like a leader. He’s standing, pretty much, right underneath the craft – just kind of standing there watching everything going on. And, he knew I was there. He just turned, he turned and looked right over in the area I was and just started walking toward me. And this is really where I don’t know what happened; I knew he knew I was there. I stand up. I walk right toward the edge of the open area and trees. And I meet him. …That’s definitely something I wouldn’t do. I think I would have just kept hiding until he found me. But, picturing it, I actually walked over there.
And , again, I don’t know if I’m just making this up, or —. …I walk over to him and he holds his hands out and I really don’t know what I do. I’m standing there face to face…within a foot. I don’t think we’re communicating. Except, sitting here thinking about it, I’ve got a feeling he knows what I’m thinking. He knows I’m scared. And he holds his hands out, like waste high. And I don’t know if he’s giving me anything. And from there, I don’t know what happened after that.” —————————————————- Bradley Foster, son, concerning the sighting of Ets and a strange craft while he was alone during our lengthy 1975 family UFO encounter at Dillon Lake in Colorado. (Brad’s full account of this Dillon Lake encounter is in Appendix B” of the book Eminent Discovery.)

“…After being hypnotized by Dr Jones, he and John told me that I had admitted, during the session, that I had experienced UFO encounters, but I stated that I didn’t want to talk about it. This didn’t really surprise me, because John had already told me that I was present during many encounters.”     “…As I sat there, absorbing the healing powers of the sun, in a split instant, I saw a bright, white half circle appear off to my west. It then disappeared nearly as quickly as it had appeared. Yet, I knew it was real and that I had witnessed a classic ‘sighting.’ There was no other explanation. (You really don’t know how real it is until you experience it.)”     “…We also saw a very strange light that night, through the back window of John’s old van.”     “…It’s also worthwhile noting that I saw a mysterious gray fog materialize in a room of UFO experiencers (John among them) who were relating their stories to a concerned audience. At least one other person also saw it.”  —————————-Annie Foster John’s wife and fellow traveler – See “Appendix A” in the book Eminent Discovery for complete statements of Annie’s accounts concerning John’s story.

“I don’t know what they were, but those lights definitely didn’t belong in that tree down by the Blue River.”  ——————————————————————- Leon, one of John’s high school classmates, concerning an extensive UFO encounter at a cabin and lake near the Blue river on New Years Eve, 1954.
