As the agents of the Australian Government penetrate into ever more remote mountain valleys, they find these backwaters of antiquity already deeply disturbed by contact with the ideas and artifacts of European civilization.
Though their technologies were based largely upon stone and wood, these peoples had highly developed cultures, as measured by the standards of maritime and agricultural ingenuity, the complexity of their varied social organizations and the elaboration of religious belief and ritual.
They were nonetheless ill prepared for the shock of the encounter with the Whites, a people so radically different from themselves and so infinitely more powerful.
For "cargo" has long flowed along the indigenous channels of communication from the seacoast into the wilderness. With it has traveled the frightening knowledge of the white man's magical power.
Patrols of the Australian Government venturing into the "uncontrolled" central highlands of New Guinea in 1946 found the primitive people there swept up in a wave of religious excitement. Prophecy was being fulfilled: The arrival of the Whites was the sign that the end of the world was at hand.
This bizarre episode is by no means the single event of its kind in the murky history of the collision of European civilization with the indigenous cultures of the southwest Pacific.
John says the base was not on alert, security was on normal rotation and only the routine number of planes forward deployed to Germany.
After the first incident on the morning of the 26th John noticed his digital watch was 45 minutes slow. Jim said his watch was also behind 45 minutes. Base control was unable to reach them by radio for 45 minutes.
While with the Halt party the third night he and Halt saw a light in the direction of the weapon storage area. The man in the weapon area tower said he only saw a light out at the edge of the base perimeter.
According to John when close to the object memory and perceptions became affected.
He goes on to mention Halt has changed or walked back many of his statements about who was there including the dates.
John's health records are still classified and have not been released. He speculates this may be due to the present or potential weaponization of this occurrence.
