It is interesting that , during the 1960s and into the early 60s there were people who claimed to have met and openly spoken with those saying they
were from another world.
There has been a suggestion that these people were part of a *black project* run by someone's intelligence service. Could be the Russkis could be
the Yanks, maybe even both, maybe even one of these countries *client* states. The premise being that. by claiming to be from another world on a
mission of goodwill and talking to people, they might somehow persuade people to trust them and hand over sensitive information, that otherwise, they
would never have spoken about. it might seem a somewhat convoluted and strange way to, in effect, spy on another country. However, given the mindset
of the time and many people's desperation not to a 3rd world war, one can see it might, indeed prove a fruitful strategy
The idea of secretly fostering peace and goodwill, between our two worlds, might well have found many an appreciative listener, even amongst those
involved in . sensitive scientific work. Don't forget many oft hose responsible for the nuclear bomb, felt the weight of its' effects, quite
heavily, on their consciences.
OK, so lets deal with another huge problem , for these claims. They look like us but are aliens. OK, well lets accept evolution occurs to fit a given
system. The surely those interested in a world like ours, might well be from a similar world themselves? If the theory of pan spermia has truth in it.
Who is to say all life in not descended from the same inter-stelllar travelling bacteria. That is, given a relatively similar set of circumstances,
that bacteria will evolve into something akin to a bipedal apelike creature with a developed cognitive circuit. So on planets that are akin to our
earth , similar if not identical evolutionary traits are found, because they are seeded from the same star dust across our universe. That doesn't
rule out, life and intelligent life in forms that we simply have no comprehension of. However, bipedal ape like forms are more likely to feel
"socially comfortable" contacting other bipedal ape like life forms, wherever they occur? Plus they already know what sort of ecosphere, planet
wise, to look for in searching out these other lifeforms?
There again they might be so technically advanced as to be able to, appear using some kind of chameleon circuit as humanoids. The slight detail
differences being deliberate, in order to convince contactees of them , genuinely, coming from another world?
Maybe they quit these experiments, post the 50s and 60s because, we humans became too 8savvy* about asking awkward questions about where they truly
came from? Remember, in the 50s many scientists regarded Venus as Earth's twin. So any visiting Alien could say ,
"Oh, we are from Venus"... and even those in positions of authority in science would be of a mind to believe them. Of course, the moment we visited
these worlds we realised that Venusian humanoids were off the menu.
See, consider it for a moment. in the 50s a civilisation that could travel from Venus to Earth, didn't need to be more than 20-30 years, more
advanced than ours in terms of it's technology. That really doesn't pose a threat to our collective human ego, in the same way as say. even coming
from the nearest Star would. The moment Venus is off the menu, to say.
"Hi, I'm an Alien"; means saying, "Hi, we are along way ahead of your science, when it comes to travel". All of a sudden that becomes far more,
loaded, to the human psyche.
The reason i bring this all up is because of this...
From page 209 onwards. The "Mr Janus incident", with the Queen of England's Equerry.
One could argue that. having studied Britain and the USA, they decided that, given the openhandedness of members of the establishment, in Britain that
was how to conduct their research in Britain. However, given the advanced state of paranoia exhibited by those in power in the USA, contact at a
more social and *lower level* was preferable and less likely to cause any social ructions, that would see them, forced to reveal their true identity?
The Royal family are not elected , so therefore, far less prone to the vagaries of popular opinion than the American establishment?
See , it cuts both ways doesn't it? One the one hand it's perfectly legitimate to argue that. As we became more sophisticated about our knowledge
of the universe fraudsters can;t simply claim they come from Venus and be taken seriously by many people at all.
On the other hand, you can argue, perfectly legitimately that, the perpetrators of these claimed meetings, had only a short window where they could,
walk amongst us , as it were, freely, admitting to various people they were from another world, before they had to admit. "Ok, we are, really,
inter-stellar/inter-dimensional travellers/sophisticated androids. because they know the moment they admit that they will be hunted down, by most
governments and their secrets demanded of them.
So yes, on the surface, these claims might seem ridiculous, however,, crazy as they seem, just maybe they are not quite as, out there, as they might
seem at first sight?
My own natural instinct is to think, it's all just hooey, but then you read the Mr Janus story and you tell me, you don't think. "Well, that is
