Logical thinking and other ramblings
(See Part One below.)
Being taught to be a novice philosopher from a very young age, I became almost totally shocked when I experienced my “flood of UFO recollections” at age 48/49, in 1986 and 1987. I remained shocked during those hectic years of the late 1980s, throughout the 1990s, and into the 2000s — when I suffered many health problems, including heart attacks, heart surgeries, and many other types of surgeries and ailments.
To tell you the truth (which I always do unless I’m telling a joke or trying to be funny), I remain shocked to this day and have recently suffered other surgeries and ailments. (This is not funny.)
In my opinion, this is primarily due to my fear, anxiety, anger and frustrations (and I have to admit, possibly old age). And even though I have been able to give interviews and talks around the country throughout those years, I feel all of this is in response to the unusual, science defying phenomenon others and I witnessed during the encounters, as well as in response to what I was shown and told by the mysterious intelligences with whom we encountered face to face…extending from my very early childhood until my last encounter of August 1986…when the so-called ETs and I had “a parting of the ways.”
After my 1986 “flood of recollections” I had an enormous number of strange facts and concepts to digest; my entire personal World was turned upside-down…and I have not been able to set it right again. This means my World will never again be what I thought it was.
So then, the obvious questions are: What were those science defying phenomenon? What were those mysterious crafts, objects and lights? Who were those mysterious men, “the voice,” and the other strange intelligent beings, really? …And what does this all mean?
Being a novice philosopher, I can speculate that the mysterious manifestations of the craft, objects, lights, men, beings, and voice indicated that some intelligence or intelligences from another dimension, not of our common time/space, forced its way or their way into our normal reality. I speculate that this was done in the realm of what we normally consider “physical”…or it was a mysterious manipulation of our personal perceptions as individuals, the perceptions of those of us who were present at the times the encounters took place.
(The drawing above represents a time when friends, my sisters and I were on a horseback ride at Chadron State Park in Nebraska….early 1950s. When the small discs with headlights began to manifest, the horses began to shy and buck. Even though this encounter continued into a short muli-episode encounter, we all were able to remain in our saddles. After the bizarre encounter ended, we canceled the ride.)
For the time being, I will consider that what happened during those 46+ years, to state it simply, was an overlapping of another dimension on our normal three dimensional time/space continuum.
(I will only temporarily consider this primarily because of what might be the true nature of our universe. That is: The true nature of our universe may not be simply what we call physical as we perceive it, but it might truly be we are experiencing a “virtual reality” in the full contextual meaning of the phrase. In recent decades and years, some of our scientists have speculated that time and space are illusions…i.e. what we perceive might be a ghostly image of what is really real. We truly might be living in a world of nothing more than electronic forces or light frequencies that zoom around from here to there, so to speak, and our soul or spiritual body and mind simply receives, sends and becomes aware of what are possibly the new patterns of electronic forces and/or light rays of thought and higher emotions, moment to moment, hour to hour, twenty four/seven…this, to be sure, a virtual reality that is suspended in all time and space endlessly forever, but is forever changing, which would indicate that time and space, in the end, are not illusions at all, but real…because changing in itself suggests a passing of time and if a passing of time a passing of location, which is space. I have a hunch that the changing is an element of will, our personal wills…and what might be what we have considered The Will of God, whoever that in the end analysis truly might be.)
Wow! This is even too much for me! The logical thinking goes on from here, but I feel we need to keep our feet on Earth ground. So, back to three dimensional physical reality. Remember, I continue to look at all of this as a research and development engineer, accepting nothing but rational evidence…and also remember, my Ethics Professor told us that: “Logical thinking can get you into trouble.”
The best way I know to approach a complex lengthy subject is to take it one step at a time. However, it is sometimes difficult to discover what a step might be. So, I believe it might be important to review the strange phenomenon we saw.
We at times, just turned around and a strange craft or object was there, sitting on the ground.
In this case there sometimes didn’t seem to be any strange manifestation. But the craft and objects were strange. “The booth” for instance was similar to the booths mentioned in The Bible. And there are some booths in especially Middle Age paintings; one seems to be flying in the air over Mary and the baby Jesus. I’ve also been told by a doctoral student and a Native American woman that “the booth” has been encountered by the Native Americans on reservations in recent years. Furthermore, it is more than interesting that I’ve seen a photo of an old Middle Age painting of “the coffin-shaped object” that others and I saw during many encounters. According to the artist who painted the coffin, it was identified as one of Ancient Egypt’s flying boats. The coffin we encountered over the years appeared identical to the one I saw in the painting. There are other significant historical and modern connections of the crafts and objects we encountered, sometimes intimately. A couple of the crafts also had a connection to our modern aerospace era.
At other times, we witnessed the crafts and objects, as well as the men and beings, manifest out of a clear distorted atmosphere, a light blue or gray haze or fog, and churning twisting clouds. They disappeared in the same fashion and also a few of them disappeared with a brilliant flash and loud explosion…believe it or not.
I will cover the descriptions of the manifestations in other articles.
Why do I believe it is important to understand what happened to me and others during those years? I primarily believe it’s important because I have conjectured, logically, that the other overlapping dimension was what we have considered Heaven for centuries, possibly since the beginning of humankind. This is the reason I entitled my second book To Earth From Heaven.
