Archetype of the UFO – DVD review

Archetype of the UFO - Reality Films

Reality Films

Title: Archetype of the UFO
Genre: UFO, Paranormal, Metaphysics
Production Company: Reality Films

The depth psychologist Carl Jung once said that UFOs could be real but a good percentage of eyewitness accounts are likely projections from the collective unconscious.

Jung made this comment in the 1950s, a decade that saw a surge of UFO interest. Most UFOs at that time were portrayed as disc-shaped flying saucers. So Jung believed that the majority of UFO reports were projections of the mandala (a Sanskrit word for “circle”). In its own religious context, the mandala carries spiritual and cosmological meaning, but for Jung it is a basic psychological archetype.

Archetype of the UFO clearly borrows from Jung’s theories. For Jung, an archetypal image (like a flying saucer) points to physiological, cultural and spiritual aspects of the self. And as an archetype of wholeness, Jung describes the self as the center and circumference of a circle.

The self is not only the centre, but also the whole circumference which embraces both conscious and unconscious; it is the centre of this totality, just as the ego is the centre of consciousness (CW 12, par. 44).

Archetype of the UFO, however, doesn’t just summarize Jung’s ideas. It extends them to include current UFO theory and evidence.

This intelligent documentary explores diverse metaphysical issues often passed over by lesser lights within the realm of ET, UFO and paranormal research.

Emphasizing possible misinterpretations of so-called physical sightings, Archetype of the UFO concedes that in many cases there may be no difference between inner and outer ET/UFO encounters. So this DVD isn’t just about little green men and flying saucers. Our very beliefs about truth and reality are also questioned.

Most of the DVD features Nick Pope, a respected figure in UFO lore who’s appeared on CNN and other major networks. Pope and interviewer Philip Gardiner probe deep, compelling us to think about ETs, UFOs, mysticism, YouTube videos, disinformation, acclimatization, social power and the role of interpretation.

Some say we must make a course correction to save our planet in the 21st century. If so, Archetype of the UFO should be standard-issue for seekers on the brink of making unusual discoveries about the self, society and the beyond.

Phoenix conference on UFOs reveals new insights

By Steve Hammons

Originally published 2/24/15 at Joint Recon Study Group

The audience at the 24th annual International UFO Congress Convention & Film Festival last week near Scottsdale, Arizona, heard some fascinating presentations that were at times both hopeful and frightening.

From ancient accounts in Native American lore to ongoing scientific developments, speakers explored many aspects of research about UFOs.

Sensitive U.S. military bases like Wright-Patterson Air Force base in southwestern Ohio and Area 51 in southern Nevada have played key roles associated with this challenging situation, according to presentations at the conference.

The Rendlesham Forest incident at a U.S. air base in the UK and UFO crashes around the U.S.-Mexican border were also discussed. Cattle mutilations and human abductions, including group abductions, were examined as well.

While some speakers perceived alleged visitors as hostile and dangerous, others put forth accounts of advanced and benevolent beings who want to help the human race survive and develop.

In fact, we may be facing several kinds of visitors that will require intelligence on our part to understand and deal with, the audience was told.

The conference was sponsored by Open Minds Production of Tempe, Arizona. Open Minds covers the UFO topic through its investigators and journalists, website, and online radio and TV programs. Additional Open Minds activities include networking with other U.S. and international researchers and sponsoring the annual UFO conference.

The five-day conference, film festival and related activities took place Feb. 18 – 22 at the Wa-Ko-Pa resort, east of Fountain Hills and Scottsdale, in the northeast metro Phoenix region.

INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM

Several speakers addressed the national security and global security issues involved in this alleged situation. Due to the nature of what has been discovered about UFOs and visitors, operational security and secrecy of U.S. and international activities have been very robust, according to some of the speakers.

No one knows this better than conference guest Bob Lazar. The live, in-person interview of Lazar by award-winning investigative TV journalist George Knapp of KLAS-TV in Las Vegas was one of the many highlights of the conference.

Back in November 1989, after a number of unique circumstances, Knapp interviewed Lazar for a news segment on KLAS-TV. That is when the nation and the world began to learn about secret facilities in a remote desert location known as Area 51.

Lazar stated in that interview that he had been working on a project involving saucer-shaped craft that did not originate in the U.S. or any other nation on Earth.

At last week’s conference, Knapp again questioned Lazar about his claims of working at a compartmented secure site in 1988-89 that was within Area 51 but separate from the main air base at Groom Lake.

Called S4, this facility included multiple hangars carved into the side of a rocky desert hill and expertly camouflaged, Lazar said. Inside the hangar bays were several craft, some disc-shaped. Lazar was assigned to help analyze and back-engineer components and systems of one of the saucers, he stated.

Lazar said he first thought these were U.S.-made craft that explained the many UFO sightings over past decades. However, upon examination of the craft and other information that came to his attention, it became clear that the craft was not ours and was tremendously far in advance of our technology at that time.

From the background information provided by both Knapp and Lazar, and the straightforward way they presented their stories to the audience, many in attendance seemed increasingly convinced that Lazar’s accounts were true.

DEFENSE AND SECURITY

Former U.S. Air Force military police officer John Burroughs spoke about the December 1980 incident in Rendlesham Forest, UK. While on-duty at a U.S. air base nearby, he and other USAF personnel (including the deputy base commander) encountered very unusual unknown objects in the sky and on the ground.

Historian Richard Dolan told conference attendees that advanced technologies and knowledge related to UFOs have been obtained, but are closely held by a relatively small number of people.

Dolan advocated for the release of more information about this situation. Though recognizing the need for security and safety, he said he feels it is potentially dangerous for our society and our democracy to keep such important information and technology secret.

He said he feels it is just a matter of time until more information is put forward about the reality of visitors from elsewhere and the situation is acknowledged and accepted more widely.

James Clarkson explored the story of June Crain, who reportedly worked at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the 1940s and was exposed to information about UFO research being done at the base.

Wright-Patterson in Dayton, Ohio, has long been a center for aircraft research over the decades, particularly the engineering and capabilities of the aircraft of our adversaries.

Mark Pilkington’s research has included a close look at how elements of our defense and intelligence community have dealt with the UFO phenomena, and how they may have leveraged it for certain purposes. He told the audience there is much more than meets the eye regarding the UFO situation. It may be much more complex than many of us realize, he said.

Speaker Ruben Uriarte talked about UFO incidents in regions along the U.S.-Mexico border. Both U.S. and Mexican militaries have been involved, he said. Though less well-known than the Roswell case, he reviewed other incidents that are similarly compelling.

FRIEND OR FOE

In separate presentations about their different cases, Thomas Reed and Charles Foltz recounted the strange circumstances of their abductions by non-humans decades ago.

Reed and family members were allegedly taken aboard a craft and examined by very strange-looking beings.

Foltz was one of four young men on a canoe and fishing trip in a remote wilderness area in Maine when they, too, were taken aboard a craft and examined. This case is known as the Allagash incident, named after the Maine wilderness area.

Both men, and their families and friends, learned more details only later with the help of researchers and investigators, and other methods to help them recall the traumatic events, they said.

Cattle mutilations remain a mystery, said speaker Christopher O’Brien. Some may be conducted by U.S. personnel monitoring the beef supply for various kinds of contamination, such as mad cow disease or other threats to human health, he stated. Yet, that scenario may not seem to fit each and every case of cattle mutilation, he indicated.

Investigator Derrel Sims expressed serious concerns about the intentions of at least some of these visitors from elsewhere. He views them (at least the type he has encountered) as adversaries to be exposed and resisted. Abductions of humans are real, he said, and implants are often placed in abductees bodies.

Mexico TV host Jaime Maussan showed video of many UFOs over Mexico City and other areas of his country and the U.S. Maussan seemed hopeful that these visitors are here to help us, and may even be signs of an upcoming positive spiritual development for humankind.

James Gilliland appeared to be on the same page with Maussan in some ways. He told the audience about frequent UFO sightings above his ranch near Mt. Adams in Trout Lake, Washington. Gilliland indicated there are both enlightened and unsavory beings of several kinds and we need to be able to deal with several aspects and scenarios.

TIME AND PLACE

Linda Zimmerman spoke about the UFO sightings in the Hudson Valley area of New York state. She said the wave of sightings in the Hudson Valley in the 1980s dovetails with other reports of UFOs there in the early 1900s.

Cheryl Costa also shared stories of close encounters in New York state. She noted that the state has been the site of odd UFO incidents possibly going back centuries.

That matches the information from Clifford Mahooty, an elder of the Zuni tribe of Native Americans in New Mexico. Mahooty said ancient oral histories of his tribe and other Native peoples make repeated mention of non-human visitors from elsewhere.

Extraterrestrial artifacts on Earth were a focus of the presentation by Frank Kimbler. The study of such artifacts as known as xenoarcheology, he said. As an assistant professor of earth sciences at the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico, he has had the opportunity to extensively research the alleged 1947 crash in the Roswell region, Kimbler explained.

Montana was the focus of Joan Bird’s presentation. Leveraging her background in zoology and psychology, she examined several aspects of the UFO phenomena and how society is moving forward to acknowledge the situation at hand.

The Asheville, North Carolina, region was the subject of Joshua P. Warren’s talk. The “Brown Mountain lights” have been seen for more than 100 years he said. Odd, large glowing balls of light periodically appear and dance around that area in the Appalachian Mountain region.

Warren’s extensive scientific research leads him to suspect they are balls of plasma energy that are generated by unusual but natural factors in the environment there. However, some of those factors may also be involved in creating electromagnetic effects that could alter gravity. This, in turn, can result in strange changes in the environment, he indicated.

FILMMAKING, TV, AWARDS

Documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell shared his research into the mysteries of the UFO situation and his contacts with people who helped him understand and document via film various elements of the topic. He said he plans to continue to make films on the UFO subject and get them distributed for larger audiences.

Video crews from the Discovery Science channel were on hand to cover parts of the conference. Exclusive previews of upcoming Sci Channel UFO-related shows were shown, promoting “Are We Alone?” week starting March 2. Sci Channel will present a week of UFO and alien programs including the shows “NASA’s Unexplained Files,” “Close Encounters,” “What on Earth” and “UFO Conspiracies.”

Reality Films – DVD with footage of late Dr. Roger K. Leir

Several excellent independent films related to UFOs were screened at the film festival. When the winner was announced, makers of the documentary “Travis” were overjoyed with their win of the EBE Award, and then with the People’s Choice Award based on the votes of the audience.

The title refers to Travis Walton who was present during the conference. He joined the filmmakers and other researchers featured in the film on stage for the award.

The film chronicles the case of Walton and his logging crew from the Snowflake, Arizona, area. After a day of work in a nearby national forest, the young men saw a saucer-shaped craft. Walton got close … too close, and was reportedly abducted and taken on board the craft, only to reappear several days later.

The case was the subject of the sensationalized and not entirely accurate 1993 Hollywood movie “Fire in the Sky.”

The late Roger Leir, MD, was posthumously awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from Open Minds Production. Leir is well-known for surgically removing highly-unusual implants embedded in the bodies of suspected abductees. He passed on just last year, March 14, 2014.

For those who were unable to attend the conference, DVDs of the speakers’ presentations are available from Open Minds Production. DVDs of presentation from past conferences are also available.

Proof God’s Universe Is Filled with Life Comes Closer

Kepler mission Delta II liftoff

By Rabbi Allen S. Maller

During Medieval times almost all Christian theologians accepted the Ptolemaic earth centered Greek view of the universe as an absolute universal truth. The Catholic Inquisition punished those who dared to voice other ideas.

I do not know why Catholic theologians believed that the rarity of life in our universe proves that God must have created life only on this planet. Perhaps they believed that if intelligent life were found to exist on other planets; it would diminish the miracle of God’s creation of Human Beings.

For me the opposite is true. That God’s universal creation is filled with life is simply the result of God’s love of living beings.

The Qur’an and the Hebrew Bible teach that the Living God created the whole universe to be conducive to the universal evolution of life. The Qur’an says, “We have not sent you but as a blessing for all the worlds.” (Al-Anbiya 107) Many commentators say “this refers to the 18.000 worlds created by Allah. Our world is one of them”. (Mir’at-e-Kainat, vol.1, p.77).

The Hebrew Bible says in the Zabur of Prophet David, King of Israel; “ Your kingdom is a kingdom of all the worlds; and Your dominion is for all generations.” (Psalms 145:13)

In January 2013, astronomers estimated that there could be at least 17 billion Earth-sized exoplanets in just our galaxy; the Milky Way. They also said that one in six stars could host an Earth-sized planet in a close orbit.

Now, two years later, proof that God’s Universe is filled with life is coming closer. NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope has discovered a star with three planets only slightly larger than Earth. The outermost planet, which is 50% larger than planet earth, orbits in the zone where surface temperatures could be moderate enough for liquid water and perhaps life to exist.

The star ranks among the top 10 nearest stars known to have transiting planets. The star is close enough for astronomers to study the planet’s atmospheres to determine if it has oxygen could possibly be conducive to multicellular life forms.

The star is a cool red M-dwarf about half the size and mass of our own sun. At a distance of 150 light years, the star ranks among the top 10 nearest stars known to have transiting planets. The star’s proximity means it’s bright enough for astronomers to study the planets’ atmospheres to determine whether they are like Earth’s atmosphere and possibly conducive to life.

For those who believe in the One God of all the inhabitable worlds, these two new scientific studies are not shocking. For unlike the Roman inquisition’s condemnation of Galileo, no Muslim or Jewish astronomer was ever condemned by a Muslim or Jewish inquisition, because Jews and Muslims never had an institution like the inquisition.

Also, because both Muslims and Jews had many philosophers who were critics of Aristotle’s and Ptolemy’s science, most medieval Jewish and Muslim religious leaders did not feel they had to prevent new science from disagreeing with Greek science.

Thus, even as new discoveries always change the scientific understanding of God’s universe; the religious belief that the whole universe exalts God and reveals God’s glory remains the same.

As it is written in the Zabur of Prophet David, King of Israel; “The heavens declare the glory of God.” (Zabur of David-Psalm 19:2)

Researcher claims ‘Sasquatch’ are advanced human-type beings with UFO connections

Activities on Earth related to extraterrestrial and/or multidimensional intelligent beings are real, and they include a surprising connection – an active and ongoing relationship with the human-type beings commonly known as “Sasquatch,” according to Jack “Kewaunee” Lapseririts, MS.

Lapseririts was the guest speaker at the Phoenix, Arizona, chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Saturday, Sept., 20, at the Arizona Historical Society Museum’s Steele Auditorium in Tempe near Arizona State University.

Lapseritis is a social scientist, holistic health consultant and researcher in anthropology. He describes himself as an outdoorsman with a strong interest in Nature and natural resources conservation. Lapseritis has lived and traveled around the world exploring different environments and conducting various types of anthropological research.

In his presentation to the Phoenix MUFON audience, Lapseritis said that for several decades, a main focus of his research and interest has been on the Sasquatch, which he claims is a real race of beings living in various regions of the world and in many areas of the US, including Arizona. Like humans, there are different types of Sasquatch, he said.

Lasperitis has written two books on this subject, “The Psychic Sasquatch and Their UFO Connection” and “The Sasquatch People and Their Interdimensional Connection.”

The foreword to “The Psychic Sasquatch” is written by Dick Robinson, cinematographer and originator of the concept of the TV series “The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams.” The TV series, which aired on NBC in 1977-78, was based on a 1972 novel and 1974 movie about a woodsman during the frontier era in the western US.

Lapseritis told the Phoenix MUFON audience that, not surprisingly, one of his favorite movies is “Harry and the Hendersons.” That heart-warming 1987 family film starred John Lithgow, Melinda Dillon and Don Ameche. In the movie, a Seattle family has a very close, and eventually loving, encounter with a Sasquatch. Steven Spielberg was an executive producer.

CARING AND CONCERNED CULTURE

Lapseritis explained that there is also another type of being similar to the Sasquatch, which he referred to as the “Ancient Ones.” He says one way they differ from Sasquatch is the lack of facial hair. The Ancient Ones’ faces appear quite human, Lapseritis stated. In contrast, the Sasquatch face is covered with hair, he said.

The Sasquatch and Ancient Ones are very human, Lapseritis stated. They are not primitive beasts, but are evolved beings with knowledge and abilities that in many ways are more advanced than our own, he claimed. He likened their culture to that of Native Americans. They were on Earth before modern humans, Lasperitis said.

Sasquatch can communicate using a verbal language and also have the ability to communicate telepathically, according to Lapseritis. (The ability to perceive information and communication using consciousness is consistent with other modern scientific research about extrasensory perception and telepathy.)

Lapseritis said Sasquatch are generally not hostile, but are secretive and learned long ago that humans are dangerous. As a result, they tend to avoid or be very cautious around humans.

However, Sasquatch are loving and caring, and if approached appropriately, will be very friendly with humans, he said. On certain subjects, they are very serious. They can also be tricksters and have fun, Lapseritis stated.

But, like humans, there are individual Sasquatch who may behave in ways that are problematic, according to Lapseritis. Their culture, including a “council of elders,” has ways of implementing severe consequences on individuals of their kind who commit serious offenses, he said.

The Sasquatch and Ancient Ones treasure the Earth and Nature. They are very concerned about ongoing damage to Earth’s ecosystem including our planet’s lands, rivers, lakes, oceans and atmosphere from pollution and abuse by our species of humans, Lapseritis claimed.

In fact, he warned that what the Sasquatch call a “sacred purification” is coming. Lapseririts said this is the same prediction or expectation of what the Hopi Native Americans of Arizona call the “great purification.” This may include various types of global geologic upheavals such as widespread severe earthquakes, huge tsunamis and other very significant Earth changes, he said.

Lapseririts says that the Sasquatch are now reaching out to our human species because of the need to halt the pollution and abuse of the planet and to heal the damage that has been done.

They are also warning us of the impending danger of traumatic Earth changes as well as the risk of the outbreak of global and nuclear war among human governments and groups, he said.

Parallel with these dangers, there is an ongoing and available path of transcendence and ascension for those humans who choose it, according to Lapseririts. The Sasquatch want us to take this path, he said, which includes valuing the beauty and gift of this Earth, seeking advanced human development and consciousness, and achieving a stronger connection with Nature and the Higher Intelligence.

Part of this expanded understanding is related to the surprising factor that the Sasquatch and Ancient Ones also have ongoing cooperative interactions and relationships with other species of advanced beings who are extraterrestrial and interdimensional, and are active on Earth, according to Lapseritis.

HUMAN LEARNING AND SURVIVAL

Through his decades of research, his personal evolution and his dedication to learning more about Nature, Lapseritis says that the Sasquatch have reached out to him personally, and to many other people.

He stated he has had multiple face-to-face encounters with Sasquatch that are ongoing. The Sasquatch are asking Lapseritis to communicate with his fellow humans about the dangers and opportunities that face us, he said.

As a result, he is speaking at various conferences and venues, informing audiences about his two books (and a pending third one), and trying to inform and educate people about the intriguing realities that he has learned about.

Lapseritis seems to realize it is a stretch to convince even open-minded people about some of the elements that he has written and spoken about. Yet, he claims “the truth is the truth,” and his job is to put the information out there for those who can hear it and intelligently consider it.

He also says that some of the additional anomalous phenomena that have been well-documented by other researchers are real and part of the holistic situation. These include multidimensional portals and star gates as well as several kinds of intelligent extraterrestrial cultures visiting Earth.

These “star people” are involved in discreet activities on Earth and have been for a very, very long time, Lapseritis said.

The background of the origins and development of our species of human is also more interesting than many of us know, he said. There has been intervention in the evolution of the human race by advanced beings, he claimed. In fact, Lapseritis stated that advanced beings are still very involved in helping our species survive our self-destructive behavior and our damage to this beautiful planet Earth.

There are many unconventional and mysterious moving parts involved in the current development of the human race, he explained. Many elements are secretive, some are just not widely known or understood, and others are quite obvious.

It’s up to us to become more informed about these unconventional developments and to make appropriate decisions to move forward, survive and develop into more advanced beings ourselves, Lapseritis indicated.
