I begin with the notion of some one other world, from which objects and substances have fallen to this earth; which had, or which, to less degree, has a tutelary interest in this earth; which is now attempting to communicate with this earth – modifying, because of data which will pile up later, into acceptance that some other world is not attempting but has been, for centuries, in communication with a sect, perhaps, or a secret society, or certain esoteric ones of this earth’s inhabitants.Charles Fort, 1919 [i]
The Jinn do not transcend space and time, but rather exist in a different quality of space and time than we do…. But it is clear that they can fascinate and/or terrify with their own multidimensional reality, which we can never fully make our own in this life … [distracting] us from our own proper relationship with space-time, and thus from the unique and specifically human responsibilities God has provided us with as ways to know him.Charles Upton [ii]
The UFO phenomenon is a mystery. There are brilliant books on this subject, such as the works of scientist Jacques Vallée; but after sixty years of painstaking research, Vallée still does not know what UFOs are. It is a complex subject – loaded with conspiracy allegations, conspiracy theories, actual conspiracies, the occult (including sorcerers who summon entities),[iii] metaphysical speculations, physics, and mind-boggling stories of advanced technologies held in secret.
Reading the book of award-winning Australian journalist Ross Coulthart, In Plain Sight, the military-technical angle comes sharply into focus. Whatever the truth about UFOs, the truth about advanced military technology may be of more immediate interest. In his search for “smoking gun” evidence on UFOs, Coulthart was told by insiders the same story other researchers have been told; namely, that the United States has retrieved what officials “thought to be” [!?] crashed vehicles of extraterrestrial origin. Coulthart’s sources have repeated, as “hearsay,” that the U.S. military has been attempting to reverse engineer these vehicles for several decades.
This kind of “rumor,” of course, is as common as dirt. What is not common is that Coulthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who got his “hearsay” evidence from Nat Kobitz, former Director of Science and Technology Development for the U.S. Navy.[iv] Kobitz was 92-years-old and terminally ill at the time (in 2020). Coulthart initially contacted Kobitz to confirm whether Kobitz had met with a former CIA-linked spook named Gordon Novel, who claimed that the U.S. Navy had successfully built an ARV Fluxliner gravity-drive vehicle, reverse engineered from alien technology. Novel claimed he had met with Kobitz in his Pentagon office in 1993, where Kobitz allegedly made a series of admissions regarding alien technology, saying it was America’s “Surpreme Cosmic Secret” and Number One national security issue. When asked about this by Coulthart, Kobitz admitted, “I remember Gordon very well. Unfortunately, a shoe salesman. Everything looked good on my feet.” Kobitz also admitted the Navy had been working on anti-gravity propulsion, but it was nothing exciting. Kobitz described it as “very low energy ion propulsion…. Micro-micro farts.” Gordon Novel’s claims about the ARV Fluxliner, said Kobitz, was a hoax. “I’m sorry,” Kobitz added. But then Kobitz wanted to say more, so Coulthart asked him a direct question. “Nat,” began Coulthart, “were you ever read into any programs involving crashed UFOs or UAPs?” After a pause Kobitz answered, “Yes, I was. I was never read out of it. So, I really can’t speak about it.”[v]
Coulthart asked whether Kobitz was aware of any recovered alien spacecraft. Kobitz said he only had hearsay information to the effect “that we had recovered, several times, alien spacecraft. Or what was thought to be.” Coulthart then asked Kobitz whether the U.S. has been trying to develop recovered alien technology. Kobitz said, “Yes, I can say that’s so.” Kobitz added that he had been invited to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio “to examine some strange pieces of metal held under high security.” This metal was, said Kobitz, a titanium alloy piece of about four feet in length with something apparently welded to it. Only, it was not welded. “It was integral with the skin….” Kobitz said, “It was completely strange for me. When you see something cast in place, it is integral and shows no interruption. Even with electron beam, you’ll sometimes see a small line. But this showed nothing, and this is what was strange about this to these manufacturing people.”[vi]
Kobitz introduced Coulthart to some of his friends. One was “a former boffin for the US Naval Weapons Centre in California at the massive China Lake Naval Base. Now retired … [and wanting to stay anonymous]” he told of being offered a job at a large aerospace firm, where he would have access to alien wreckage and humanoids. But the job fell through and he never actually saw anything.[vii]
As tantalizing as all this testimony might be, Couthart correctly admits that nothing is proved by it. Furthermore, nothing here is new. It is the same basic story told by Col. Philip J. Corso in a 1997 book titled The Day After Roswell. Corso was a former Pentagon Official who claimed that he had farmed out alien technology from the 1947 crash of a flying saucer at Roswell, New Mexico, to U.S. labs for reverse-engineering. Corso said that fiber optics, lasers and the integrated circuit were among the technologies developed from Roswell crash artifacts (which included elastic “memory metal”). Corso’s error-ridden book, however, did not persuade skeptics.[viii] If there was any truth to Corso’s story, the book’s braggadocious embellishments, along with a lawsuit filed against Col. Corso and his son by Neil Russell, damaged Corso’s credibility beyond repair.[ix] More recently, Corso’s claims have been debunked by Jacques Vallée and Paola Harris, who offered a “cautious word” about the history of technology and its origins, obliquely referring to Corso by noting, “many UFO books have incorrectly described how certain inventions came to be.” By way of example, they pointed to the transistor effect, discovered in the 1930s, which “an old German patent proves,” and “therefore was not derived from the Roswell crash, [and] the same is true for memory metals.” In fact, as Vallée and his coauthor explained, the miraculous “memory metal” of Roswell with its “pseudo-elasticity” was not something unknown to Earth science. In fact, a flexible alloy of cadmium and gold was discovered in 1932 “by a scientist named Arne Olander.” Six years later, another elastic metal was discovered by Greninger and Mooradian using a copper-zinc alloy….[x] In the case of a retired military intelligence official (Corso), and the Navy’s former boss of Research & Development (Kobitz), we must wonder whether the ET crash story isn’t a double blind used to discredit journalists whose inquiries get too close to secret weapon programs.
If U.S. military secrets are guarded in this way, one might argue that a serious mistake has been made; for UFO-related conspiracy theories have been a staple of Soviet and Russian psychological warfare, stoking the anti-government resentment of those who want “the truth about flying saucers” to be disclosed. The U.S. Government and military are cast as villains engaged in hiding the truth about something they have no right to hide. As we will see in Part II of this essay, the KGB and its sister services, planted and spread fake U.S. Government documents about the Roswell crash for the purpose of maligning those companies and agencies responsible for national defense. Unfortunately, with Couthart’s credibility at the forefront, a larger number of people (of higher quality) are going to be drawn into the disinformation vortex.
In terms of Soviet deception strategy, the picture is further complicated by the possibility of a layered series of deceptions. The rumor of alien bodies and crashed saucers now includes a remarkable cast of famous secondary witnesses. For example, there is the alleged testimony of Einstein’s one-time assistant, Shirely Wright, who supposedly said that she traveled with Einstein to Roswell in the summer of 1947 to view a disc-shaped craft and five small bodies;[xi] or the story told by Jackie Gleason’s second wife, Beverly, about how her famous husband “came home … white-faced … and spilled out the incredible story” of being taken by his golfing buddy, President Richard Nixon, to Homestead Air Force Base and shown alien bodies.[xii] But then, full stop, we have a non-ET explanation of all these reports from a very credible journalist – Annie Jacobsen – who explained it all in terms of Cold War intrigue.
According to Jacobsen, the little bodies recovered at Roswell were not space aliens. They were human children – the victims of grisly experiments ordered by Stalin. The whole Roswell coverup and several decades of disinformation on the part of the U.S. Government, said Jacobsen, was all about “beating Stalin’s black propaganda campaign … to hoax Americans in a War of the World type scenario, whereby little men who looked like aliens would get out of an aircraft [in the New Mexico desert] and the government would go crazy about it. And Stalin would say, ‘Look, not only do we have technology better than you, but we have a better propaganda department than you.’”[xiii]
When Jacobsen explained this to podcaster Joe Rogan, the befuddled response was, “So Stalin hired short people?” To most UFO believers Jacobsen’s research will sound silly. Many have suggested that she has been duped by a government disinformation agent; but if you listen to the entire podcast, taking in the full story of Jacobsen’s heartbroken witness, you will not be able sidestep the story so easily. An old nuclear physicist, sobbing guiltily about his own acquiescence to American experiments on retarded children, is not so easily debunked. A person of that age, so near to death, has no reason to play such games.
If Jacobsen’s source was honest, and if her evaluation of that source is right, the Roswell flying saucer crash was part of a bizarre communist deception under the direction of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. And why should that be so hard to believe? For more than a century Moscow has presented us with one “Potemkin village” after another – portraying plenty where there was famine, freedom where there was slavery, friendship where there was only enmity. All of this culminated in the fake capitalist democracy of post-Cold War Russia (now ruled by former KGB officer V.V. Putin).
Russian deception games are not marginal phenomena. They have been front and center again and again. Russian deception games have been elaborate, and they have been so effective that casual observers are routinely pushed into serious misunderstandings about the world in which they live. The UFO community (as it is called), is resistant to Jacobsen’s revelations because people involved in this subject know almost nothing about the many outlandish Russian disinformation operations carried out in the past. Most flying saucer believers would, ironically, cast Jacobsen as a victim of CIA or Pentagon disinformation. Because past KGB disinformation has successfully credited the CIA with “Mission Impossible” type skills, people will believe the most fantastical stories about the CIA’s involvement with aliens. In reality, however, the KGB and GRU have been objectively more successful than the CIA on many fronts (including the psychological warfare front).[xiv] If the CIA was so good, and so successful, why do so many people blame the CIA for the Kennedy assassination? If the CIA was better at disinformation than the KGB, wouldn’t most people believe the KGB killed JFK? Why not admit the possibility that Moscow has given us fake extraterrestrials? Why not admit the possibility that the rest of us have been victimized by KGB disinformation more than we have been victimized by a CIA or Pentagon coverup of UFOs?
Although Russia’s post-Soviet façade has recently collapsed, Moscow’s ability (or technology) to stage events and swindle millions of people, is well documented. If an attempt to land fake aliens in New Mexico ended disastrously in a crash near Roswell, the Kremlin’s overall involvement with UFO contactees and cults did even more to advance the “alien agenda” in the decades that followed the Roswell incident. In terms of palpable indicators, it is worth repeating the fact that anti-capitalist, anti-U.S. military narratives are integral to the UFO disclosure movement. In fact, the Kremlin’s involvement in pushing these narratives has been carefully documented by researcher Nick Redfern.[xv] Infiltrating and seeding UFO groups with disinformation was a KGB thing. By using cognitive dissonance, contradiction, kidnapping, mind control drugs, and hypnosis, Moscow advanced the communist agenda in tandem with an occult agenda (possibly opening a pandora’s box along the way). From the atheistic standpoint of communism, what better propaganda could there be for discrediting traditional religious faith? After all, communism openly seeks to discredit religion as “the opium of the people.”
What is disappointing in all this is the opportunism and stupidity of the U.S. military and government. According to Jacobsen’s witness, American officials decided to play copycat in response to Stalin’s fake UFO invasion; that is to say, they decided to fake their own UFO incidents, to experiment on mentally handicapped American children, to abduct witnesses, and more. By playing their own version of Stalin’s game, they have unwittingly closed the door on Cold War reality for many Americans. Is it possible that Americans and West Europeans have lost their ear for truth – scanning the skies for flying saucers? Has this become our new “reality” on which our expectations for scientific “progress” depend? Are the masses more and more ruled by the tortured exaggerations of a science fiction fever swamp, with endless “titillating tales” that never consummate in definitive proof? Healthy skepticism in this area, admittedly, does not pay. So where does that leave us? – with rumors, clumps of metal, and a whiff of angel hair. Why, indeed, after several decades, is the alleged Roswell wreckage not sitting in a display case next to the Apollo 11 Command Module in the Smithsonian? Is it because the Roswell wreckage was never real?
But wait! What about all the unexplained aerial phenomena (UAPs) that have no connection with Roswell? What about UFOs tracked on radar, the “foo-fighters” seen by Allied bomber crews during World War II, or the tens of thousands of reported (or statistically suspected) alien abductions? Surely, all these phenomena cannot be Soviet disinformation; for the phenomena are older than the Soviet Union, older than Stalin, and maybe older than dirt (which illustrates my point even more). We don’t just lack proof of nuts-and-bolts craft after 76 years. We have no nuts-and-bolts anything after thousands of years! And while Jacobsen’s story does not explain the universe and all its mysteries, we must remember that there may be various explanations for the observed phenomenon – explanations both natural and supernatural, which may or may not include extraterrestrials.
Most skeptics and debunkers of the UFO phenomenon believe they understand how the universe works (in principle); consequently, they are bound to reject testimony on UFO Close Encounters of the Third Kind (which often include such experiences as telepathy with strange beings, paralysis of the subject in his or her bedroom, entities passing through walls, and poltergeist activity – which has been correlated with UFO activity). It is worth noting that when a hardened skeptic crosses over to being a true-believer, he is more likely to embrace the idea that UFOs are spacecraft from another world rather than credit the literature of the Church on demonology. There is a blindness that afflicts people who believe the physical universe is the only reality. Years ago, a scientist told me, “There are no mysteries. There are only problems we have yet to solve.” The assumption here is that human beings will eventually know everything there is worth knowing. This idea, however, is ignorant concerning past human experience. Has anyone actually proved that physical reality is the only reality? What, then, is consciousness? In philosophy, such questions lead away from scientific certainty towards the transcendental mystery and the “divine ground” of existence.[xvi]
The UFO, as an object straddling the margins of our reality, points us in a transcendental direction. With this observation we must add yet another deceptive layer to the UFO phenomenon, a layer touching on deceptive non-human intelligences. One of the more interesting hypotheses, tying these various elements together, was clarified by Charles Upton, in his invaluable book The Alien Disclosure Agenda. Pointing to three overlapping areas of UFO complexity, Upton observed that we are dealing with a paranormal (supernatural) phenomenon many centuries old, now intertwined with the psychological warfare games of various intelligence services, further complicated by the advent of new technologies under development by the great powers (i.e., technologies like fusion power, gravity-drive propulsion, and electromagnetic fields that can reduce the mass of an object). The UFO subject, therefore, touches on issues of much greater importance than whether there are other inhabited worlds throughout our galaxy. The UFO subject touches on humanity’s limitations and, at the same time, on technologies that might convey godlike powers to those who acquire them. We must not forget that there is an ongoing battle here on Earth, between the believers of the New Religion (state socialism) and the Old Religion (monotheism). If the New Religion is atheistic and dismisses God as the author of all things, then the extraterrestrial may become a necessary god-substitute for unifying mankind (because, after all, socialists believe we must unify our “planet” if we wish to graduate into the “galactic community” and commune with higher intelligences).
This last idea is disturbing for religious people; for we can see, all around us, that a war is raging between the New Religion and the Old (in which the Old Religion does not appear to be winning). In this war, new weapons have appeared – including psychological weapons. The sorceries of antiquity have now given way to the sorceries of parapsychologists and government-managed super-psychics. In this context Charles Upton wrote:
My own depressing hypothesis [about UFOs] is this: Various groups of occultists or black magicians bent on world domination, some of whom seem to have ties with the intelligence community … and who may or may not possess ‘interdimensional’ technologies provided or inspired by the Jinn, are staging deceptions (the obvious propaganda by which the Roswell event has been sold to the public as the crash of an alien spaceship being a good example) for three purposes: (1) to divert public attention from other activities they wish to hide; (2) to influence the mass mind toward a major paradigm-shift, away from religion and objective science, and toward belief in alien visitors; and, (3), to invoke, by mass suggestion and sympathetic magic, the demons they worship.[xvii]
Upton’s “depressing hypothesis” takes into account the manipulations of governments as well as things that go bump in the night. It seems there are spooks from the nether world and spooks who work for government agencies. It also seems that these spooks have discovered each other. The problem may be to determine which kind of spook is ultimately in control. I am reminded of something KGB defector Nikolai Khokhlov said in the mid-1990s. Speaking to a close friend of mine, he said there were “occult experiments in the sub-basements of the Lubyanka [KGB Headquarters in Moscow].” Khokhlov, who survived an assassination attempt using radioactive thallium in 1957, said that these experiments terrified him. According to the executive summary of a formerly classified U.S. Foreign Technology Division report from 1980,
USSR research on paranormal phenomenon (i.e., telepathy, ESP) was begun in the early 1920s by a few researchers, was interrupted at the start of World War II, and was re-initiated in 1959. At that time, and shortly after, established scientists from various disciplines entered this research field, and the scope of research was increased to include all types of paranormal phenomena (e.g., psychokinesis). Recently, additional researchers have become active, with some of their work addressing a wide range of human sensitivities (e.g., to subtle electromagnetic fields). A trend toward multidisciplinary research is emerging which could accelerate understanding of various paranormal phenomena.[xviii]
The Soviets were keen on relabeling words from the vocabulary of occultism to give the subject a “scientific” allure. Even more remarkable, the Communist Party Soviet Union initiated a screening process by which psychically “gifted people” could be drawn from the general population. The objective here was for gifted individuals to improve their skills, and for Soviet scientists to develop new training techniques for psychics. We have no real idea of the full extent of these programs, but a new brand of sorcery is indicated. According to the USAF Foreign Technology Division report, “In 1967, the most statistically significant telepathy experiment in the history of paranormal phenomena research occurred. An experiment by Kogan’s group in Moscow achieved 105 out of 135 correct correlations to random-selected digits from 0 to 9.”[xix]
For more than four decades, Soviet and then Russian leaders have dropped hints about “weapons based on new physical principles,” including psychophysical weapons. In 2012 Putin published an article mentioning these weapons “which will be comparable in results to nuclear weapons, but more ‘acceptable’ politically and militarily.” Although we know very little about this class of weapon, the Russians have been working on “psychotronic generators” that are designed to “brainwash people at a distance.” Especially, the Russians see psychotronic weapons being most effective against countries where social, ethnic, and religious tensions can be exploited. Retired officer of the Soviet and Russian Strategic Rocket Forces, Major General Vladimir Semenovich Belous,[xx] has written of the “dosed presentation of ideologically and psychologically … provocative material, the skillful alternation of truth and false information” for creating a powerful means of “psychological offensive.” Major General Belous casually made, in this context, a rather curious remark about UFOs. “There is no doubt that as the natural sciences develop and fundamental discoveries appear,” he explained in reference to UFOs, “new types of weapons can be created.” Cryptically, he said UFOs were a force of nature, like gravity; and he suggested they might be harnessed.[xxi] In this context, one of my Russian sources reported that during the 1980s some of the grown children of Soviet Strategic Rocket Forces generals had become involved in occult practices (with special interest in the writings of Aleister Crowley).
In these matters we should not be afraid to posit a few bold questions: (1) Have the Russians understood the UFO as a “force” that might be summoned and commanded, as a sorcerer might summon and command a powerful demon? (2) Is there a logical path of development, from successful experiments with telepathy, to interactions with “telepaths” piloting UFOs? (3) Could the prospect of alien contact be exploited politically to discredit capitalism, or to overturn civilization itself?
In this context it is worth returning to Charles Upton’s comments, where he wrote, “UFOs represent a mass psychic invasion of the most alarming nature, requiring an immediate and militant response on the plane of spiritual warfare.”[xxii] According to Upton, “Alien contact represents an eruption into the material plane of subhuman forces from the subtle realm, whose goal is the dissolution of our world.”[xxiii] For those who understand communism, and the whole modern ideological tendency that flows around it, there arises a question: In terms of the dissolution of our world, is Moscow harnessing UFOs, or has Moscow been harnessed by UFOs?
What is a UFO alien, anyway? Is it a demon, a Jinn, a trickster spirit, an ultra-terrestrial from the “intelligent electromagnetic spectrum”? How does it happen that they are telepathic, like demons? How is it that they can materialize and dematerialize? Turning to Medieval sources, Thomas Aquinas, in his book On Evil, goes through several proofs that “devils have ethereal bodies joined to them by nature.”[xxiv] Summarizing Dionysius’ argument to the effect that “the evil in devils is ‘an irrational rage, a demented desire, and a shameless imagination,’” he notes that “these three things belong to the sensory part of the soul … and the sensory part of the soul does not exist apart from a body. Therefore, devils have bodies.”[xxv] Having bodies, and being rational creatures, it also follows that they would have tools; perhaps even machines, or inventive prowess. And if these “creatures” are more intelligent than men, what would be the limit of that prowess? Aquinas wrote, “For example, Calcidus says in his Commentary on the Timaeus: ‘Devils are rational animals, immortal, capable of experience in their soul, ethereal in their bodies.’ And Apuleius says in his work On the God of Socrates that devils are animals by their kind, capable of experience in their soul, rational of mind, ethereal of body, everlasting in time.” And Augustine brings this description of devils into the City of God. Therefore, devils have bodies joined to them by nature.”[xxvi]
Modern man assumes that devils only exist in the imagination of superstitious people. But who dares to say that Thomas Aquinas was superstitious? He was one of the most brilliant men that ever lived. Yet it appears that he believed in demons. Likewise, the men he quoted in this regard – Clacidus and Apuleius and St. Augustine. And modern scientists, who are strict in their science, like Jacques Vallée, also allow that “creatures” of this kind may indeed exist; for we know of them by common report from witnesses ancient and modern. Thus, in discussing close encounters with ufonauts, Vallée has turned to the literature of the Church Fathers – the literature on demonology. In his book, Passport to Magonia, Vallée opens the pages of “religious records … which [offer] us one of the most remarkable cases … I have ever come across.” He quotes from the writings of Fr. Ludovico Maria Sinistrari regarding an incubus with attending poltergeist phenomena, set down in a work titled De Daemonialitate, et Incubis, et Succubis, “written in the second half of the seventeenth century.” Sinistrari was an Italian theologian born in 1622. He taught philosophy and theology in Pavia, being an advisor to the Inquisition, an expert in exorcism and demonology. At one point in his career, Fr. Sinistrari’s attention was directed to a married woman of impeccable morality, named Hieronyma. She was praised by the local clergy as someone of good character. Sinistrari wrote that an invisible creature entered this woman’s bedroom after arranging a strange gift for her. It tried to seduce her. And although she said no to the seduction, she could feel the creature’s kisses on her body. The phenomenon persisted despite the clergy’s best efforts. In fact, it grew worse. One night the incubus materialized as a handsome young man with golden curls and a beard. Despite its attractive form, Hieronyma continued to resist. Soon the incubus began taking her jewelry and other valuables. These items would simply disappear. Eventually the creature began to beat her, leaving bruises on her body. At one point the creature took the woman’s baby and dangled it on the edge of the roof, threatening to kill it. All this while demanding she submit to seduction. Meanwhile, none could see the demon but Hieronyma. However, there were many witnesses to its more annoying tricks. The husband reported that the incubus filled their bedroom with rounded, flat stones which are found in that part of Italy. The room was so piled with stones, the couple had to send for a ladder to get out of bed in the morning. Yet the most dramatic demonstration of the demon’s power came when it made an entire table full of food disappear during a banquet, replacing it with an entirely different table of food.[xxvii]
There are volumes of testimony about this sort of thing, including an incredible report from the pen of Cotton Mather in the American colonies. For those who wish to remain scientific, the father of political science, Nicolo Machiavelli, affirmed the reality of supernatural phenomena – as did historians like Livy and Plutarch, theologians like Aquinas and St. Augustine. Why should it be scandalous, then, if a scientist like Jacques Vallée prefers to keep an open mind?
Readers might wonder what all this has to do with UFOs. Manfred Cassirer, a council member of the Society for Psychical Research in the UK, and an investigator of alien abduction cases, wrote, “Most people in modern times dismiss the more frightening aspects of ufology and witchcraft as superstition.” After surveying the history of witchcraft, in which human beings have allegedly caused sickness and death by cursing other individuals or livestock, Cassirer wrote, “With UFOs there appears to be something infinitely more powerful [at work]. ‘Progress’ has had its way in this as in every other field!”[xxviii]
Side-by-side with material progress there may be progress in the black arts. Military powers may be conducting research on occult “technologies,” so that a leader like Putin can brag about having “psychophysical weapons.” We know the witch-hunting of centuries past was fueled by irrational hysteria; but what if there was, in part, something real behind the hysteria? If telepathy has been demonstrated under laboratory conditions, could there be a malign telepathy – a telepathy that can kill cattle at a distance, or make someone ill? If so, why would a Russian or Chinese dictator pass up the chance to have that kind of power for himself? At the same time, noted Cassirer, the shadowy entities that pass for little men from space are more akin to “apparitions, spirits, impersonations of religious figures or of our dear departed. These shapeshifting configurations are masters of deception and adapt themselves like modelling clay to our cultural milieu and belief-structures…. At best, they reflect popular current ideas on ‘green’ issues, at their worst, they talk incoherent rubbish and go in for … pseudo-scientific jargon which is more a projection from the percipient’s immature mind.”[xxix] Could these entities be psychic projections – transmitted thought-forms from a laboratory in the sub-basements of KGB headquarters in Moscow? Summarizing all these elements, Charles Upton wrote,
The phenomenon is real, and largely inexplicable to conventional science…. In view of this, national governments, or cabals within them, or various extra-governmental power blocs, have said to themselves, ‘If we can explain or control the UFO phenomenon, we can at least use it to our benefit.’ Consequently, they spread the belief that national governments know a great deal about the phenomenon and what’s behind it, and that such governments are in fact in … contact with intelligent extraterrestrial beings….[xxx]
Taking up this general line of research, what further revelations might we expect?

Hubbard himself bizarrely asserted that his former wife Betty, when she had been involved with Parsons, had “succumbed to the sinister Communist technique of ‘pain-drug hypnosis.’ He named several members of the early Dianetics circle as suspects of Communism, including Gregory Hemingway (1931-2000), the son of the famous writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). Gregory, a transsexual medical doctor, was shortly associated with Dianetics but is better known for his later change of name into Gloria. He died in 2001 in the woman’s section of the Miami jail, after his arrest outside a state park for indecent exposure.” The story here is a tangled web of communist intrigue, occult experimentation, and cutting-edge science all mixed together.

There have been no similar penetrations of the KGB or GRU, excepting in the case of TOPHAT where the CIA eventually determined TOPHAT (GRU Lt. Gen. Dmitri Fedorovich Polyakov) was fake, perhaps part of an elaborate deception. FBI Director William Sullivan came to believe that Polyakov was a “triple agent” who deceived the West by forwarding disinformation. At every turn, the Western intelligence services were behind the curve.
