A little while ago I got a book from a friend of mine. It was a book called Alien Encounters and was written by Rupert Matthews. In this book were
many detailed accounts of abductions, sightings , and the like . In the final pages of the volume, was a reference to an incident that I dont recall
ever having heard about before.
I shant copy it down verbatim because that would land me up getting boned by copyright lawyers in hades for all time, but I will give you the summary
version and see what you make of it.
According to the author of the book, an astronomer told him, that during the 1980's NASA had picked up a radio signal originating on one of the moons
of Jupiter. The signal appeared to carry a coded messege but all NASA's technological powers failed to decode it in any way . The President of the
United States of America was alerted and called the president of the Soviet Union (as it was then) to ask if they knew anything about it . The Soviets
admitted that they had spotted the signal a few weeks earlier, but couldnt make head nor tail of it. All they could say was that the signal appeared
to be artificial, and sent by an intelligent form of life. A big conference was held , at which it was decided that if the signal was being sent from
beings based on Jupiters moon, then contact ought to be established, and so a return signal was devised. Sent in morse code, this statement was sent:
"We have recieved your signal, but we do not understand it. Please resend your signal using this language and transmission code."
The signal was sent , and immediately the original signal on the moon of Jupiter ceased. For weeks radio recievers on earth were pointed at the
original signal source, waiting for a transmission to begin, and lo and behold it did! The new signal was being beamed directly at earth and was in
morse code! The scientists translated the signal , with great excitement, only to realise that the first communication from an intelligent lifeform
had said "We weren't talking to you."
Now... What I want to know is , is this new information to us? If so , can it be verified? Just so you can look up the author if you wish , I will
Now I have looked on there , but I cannot find this book on his site even though he is most certainly the author. Perhaps hes none to proud of it heh.
Anyway , if anyone has any more on the story of this messege I would be pleased to hear of it !
