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

“I offer you my story and the books not for self aggrandizement or profit , but simply so you can truly understand. I’ve included information about my professional life so you can know more about who I am and to lend some sense of credence to the entire story.

Throughout the past 29 years I have sacrificed a great deal. My sacrifice includes: 1) my multifaceted professional life, 2) good relations with people I truly care about, 3) my good health, and 4) significant monetary wealth.

I voluntarily and involuntarily sacrificed these things: 1) so that I can more fully understand, and 2) as above, so you also can truly understand…so you can know what I believe is true of the hidden realities underlying normal three dimensional human life on our shared Planet Earth. I feel my story is your story also, and that it reflects and affects human life on Earth since its very beginning. Please read to the bottom of this home page and purchase the books, not for my benefit but yours, as I feel I have represented the actual truth, as I see it, as best I can….Thank you for visiting.” ….John

About jafos

I am a 75 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields...home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, author. Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood...but I really couldn't understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 26 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I can now offer you these three books that I have created to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs.
