We (gaiaguys) put this little page together to demonstrate how much of a dangerous cognitive dissonance there presently is in our insane society.

The Planetary Society and Paul Davies are a glowing examples of this.

We hope to add to this page as more information comes to hand.

As Albert Einstein once said, "Concepts which have proved useful for ordering things easily assume such a great authority over us, that we forget their terrestrial origin and accept them as unalterable facts. They become labeled as 'conceptual necessities," etc. The road of scientific progress is frequently blocked for long periods by such errors."

Hi Planetary Society,

I just read about the meeting at the Harvard Planetary Club and I wanted to help you out just a little bit.

For the past 62 years, there has been an ongoing UFO contact case that we've now proven to be authentic. There is an abundance of still irreproducible physical physical evidence (photos, films, video, sound recordings, metal alloy samples) that the top professional skeptics have (despite accepting the challenge) failed to duplicate or debunk.

There are now well more than 100 witnesses, including a former UN diplomat, as well as at least 5 photographers of the UFOs.

I invite you to get up to speed on "discovering" the facts in the Billy Meier contact case in Switzerland. We are now getting more international coverage and I enjoy keeping a log of the numerous professional and amateur "experts" and organizations that I personally inform, as well as their thoughtful responses, so please feel free, whatever your point of view to comment (and even enlighten me as to where I've gone wrong should you feel so inclined).

Best regards,

Dear Planetary Society,

Dear Dr. Bruce Murray, Chairman of the Board,

This is a follow-up to Michael Horn's recent email concerning the apparent reality of the Eduard Meier UFO-contact case. (Horn's email  is enclosed below). I have been studying that case since 1983, and the evidence for its genuineness and reality is so strong that an inordinate amount of anthropocentric reasoning is required to disregard it.

 In case there is interest there (at Cal Tech or NASA Ames?) in how the SETI endeavor fits in with the other two scientific schools of  thought ("We are alone," and "We are being visited"), I'm available to give a 1-hr presentation that would briefly review the ideas set forth in papers on the subject (mostly from _Icarus_ and the _QJ Roy Astron. Soc._) the past 30 years. In the last half I would present some of the key photographic evidence from the Meier UFO case that Horn has mentioned, and reasons why attempted debunkings have failed.

Dear Mr. Deardorff,

I don't believe that The Planetary Society, Caltech, or the  NASA Ames Research Center would be interested in the case you refer  to.  Generally, many scientists are interested in only fresh evidence  uncovered with instruments that they are familiar with.

Good luck,

Bruce Murray

Dear Mr. Murray,

Perhaps you underestimate the many scientists you refer to, as they may indeed be familiar with the instruments, personnel and scientific protocols used to uncover the evidence during the six-year investigation of this still ongoing case.

However, on the other hand, if your rapid (and pompous) response is typical of the depth of investigation of the "scientists" you mention, apparently they are unaware of innumerable discoveries, and recognized facts, which they themselves didn't have the good fortune to have discovered or have dropped into their laps in accordance with the
prejudices you ascribe to them.

If you didn't see it, it doesn't exist. By the way, does the name Galileo ring any bells for you? And exactly what rank in your church do you hold?

All the best,

Michael Horn

P.S. Thankfully, Dr. Veverka wasn't so limited in his prejudices that he couldn't acknowledge Mr. Meier's preemptive knowledge.


Here's an interesting email we got from Professor Emeritus James W. Deardorff, addressed to Michael Horn and your website author.

Hi Michael, Dyson,

Yesterday I emailed a knowledgeable friend who works at NASA Ames in
California, to see if by any chance he would feel it was feasible and of
sufficient interest for me to give them a presentation that would have SETI
as its obvious point of connection with science. His answer was in the
negative, and I suspect that at the very least, it would have to be someone
whom they all knew and respected before he'd stand a chance of giving a
one-hour presentation involving the UFO phenomenon.

Here's what a friend of mine at NASA Ames had to say about it:

<<Sadly, I suspect a talk bridging SETI & UFOs would draw little serious
interest at Ames.  We're currently in the midst of dealing with the
reorganizational hubbub that is the fallout from the new Bush plan for
NASA.  Job uncertainty, budget woes, and the scramble to redefine where
everyone can try to fit into the new master plan for NASA is a practical
preoccupation at this time.  Ames has kept its distance from SETI since it
was forced into the private funding situation a few years ago.
Approximately a year ago, there was a "great debate" sponsored by SETI,
with folks like David Grinspoon and Frank Drake speaking at a hotel in Palo
Alto because the event could not be held at Ames, probably for both
security and political reasons.  I attended, and it was a very mild
discussion of ETs, etc at an abstract level, including no contact
whatsoever with the idea that ETs might now be among us or visiting us.
There appears to be a gigantic gap for Ames scientists to jump even to
serious consideration of the mild SETI form of ET investigation, and I
suspect the gap to considering the "We are being visited" hypothesis would
be psychologically and career-managingly impossible for Ames staff.

Message for the curious: please phone ET, at home

Date: August 10 2004

Space isn't the only place to look for proof of extraterrestrial life, writes Paul Davies.

The question of whether we are alone in the universe is one of the biggest of the Big Questions of Existence. One way to settle the matter is to find some cosmic company. A direct approach to this problem is to scan the skies with radio telescopes in the hope of stumbling across a message from an alien civilisation.

It is a long shot of literally astronomical proportions, but that hasn't deterred a dedicated band of radio astronomers from trying.

Known as SETI - the search for extraterrestrial intelligence - this project has been running for 40 years. So far the silence has been deafening. There could be all sorts of reasons for this, including the obvious one that ET simply doesn't exist. But while the radio astronomers seek to beef up their efforts, it seems worth asking whether other approaches should be tried.

Put yourself in the situation of the aliens, out there somewhere in the galaxy. They surmise that Earth looks promising for the emergence of intelligent life one day, but they have no idea when. There would be little point in beaming radio messages in this direction for eons in the vague hope that one day radio technology would be developed here and someone would decide to tune in.

A better plan would be to leave a message for us to find when we are ready. The trouble with this set-and-forget strategy is the time factor. Life takes billions of years to evolve intelligence. Even if ETs figured there was animal life on Earth, they could be faced with a wait of tens of millions of years. That is a long time for an artefact to survive.

Putting the text inside a large metal object and plonking it on the Earth's surface is expensive in transportation costs, and risky. Our restless planet leaves nothing untouched for long. The artifact could easily end up buried or drowned or eroded to scrap.

The ideal solution would be to encode the message inside a large number of self-replicating, self-repairing microscopic machines programmed to multiply and adapt to changing conditions.

Fortunately such machines already exist: they are called living cells. The cells in our bodies, for example, contain genetic messages written by Mother Nature billions of years ago.

DNA, the molecule that contains the script of life, encodes its data in a four-letter alphabet. This would be an ideal medium for storing a cosmic calling card. In many organisms, humans included, genes make up only a tiny fraction of their DNA. Much of the rest seems to be biological gobbledygook, often called "junk DNA". There is plenty of room there for ET to etch a molecular message without damaging any vital genetic functions.

How long would such a message survive? Mutations continually scramble sequences of DNA, especially the junk part. Recently, however, scientists in the United States have discovered whole chunks of human and mouse junk DNA that seem to have remained virtually unchanged for tens of millions of years. That would be a good place to store a message.

The beauty of this scheme is that ET wouldn't have to visit Earth to implant the message. A lot of junk DNA consists of genomic fragments inserted by viruses over the course of evolution. An alien civilisation could, for negligible cost, dispatch tiny packages across the galaxy, loaded with customised viral DNA. The cargo would be designed to infect, without harm, any DNA-based life it encountered.

How would we know if there was a message in our genomes? Presumably ET would make it easy for us to spot. Some sort of in-your-face pattern would be best, something that stood out from the random scatter of genetic letters.

A good way to do this would be to use the letters to represent pixels on a screen tracing out a shape like a circle - an idea mooted in a different context by the late Carl Sagan in his novel Contact. That way, the artificial nature of the pattern would still be apparent even if a few pixels got scrambled.

The arresting pattern would serve to flag the message itself, which would otherwise be overlooked as a meaningless jumble. The message would then need to be decoded with the help of a computer. What would ET have to say to us? Most likely, any message in the genome would be rather basic, like people waving between mountain tops.

It might contain the co-ordinates and transmission times of a conventional radio message, broadcast every century, perhaps. Or it could direct us to a larger artefact located safely in the fringes of our solar system, in which we would find the entire contents of an encyclopedia galactica, including the rise and fall of ET's civilisation, which may have died out long before human beings even existed.

I have to admit that my proposal is at the extreme end of the spectrum of speculation, but genomic SETI is probably no dafter than radio SETI, which has the blessing of the US space agency, NASA, and the scientific community. And I am certainly not advocating that we abandon radio SETI just yet.

The co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen, recently gave $US35 million ($49 million) for an array of radio telescopes being constructed in northern California and dedicated to expanding the search for alien signals. Other scientists think ET would prefer to use lasers to beam messages and have started a search using optical telescopes.

But the advantage of genomic SETI is that scientists are sequencing and analysing genomes like crazy anyway. For little extra cost they can scan the burgeoning database for signs of alien tinkering. Given the momentous nature of finding a message from ET, a bit of effort seems worthwhile.

Radio SETI generates such huge amounts of data that scientists have enlisted the public to help analyse it on their desktop PCs. So successful has this SETI@home project become that molecular biologists have emulated it with Genome@home.

It would be simple to merge these projects under the catchy slogan: The truth is inside us.

Paul Davies works at the Australian Centre for Astrobiology, Macquarie University. This article is adapted from an essay in New Scientist, August 7.

Dear Paul,

I enjoyed reading your article regarding suggesting that extraterrestrials might have left a message or evidence of their existence in our DNA.

According to the information in the Billy Meier contacts, this indeed occurred, a very long time ago, in the form of genetic modifications that increased our propensity for excessive aggression as well as  accelerated aging.

Please feel free to view the preponderance of evidence for the  authenticity of the Meier contacts, still ongoing for 62 years (www.theyfly.com). You might want to start with my article Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt.

Program summary
The Big Picture: Britain's X-Files

8:30pm Wednesday, 11 August

Exclusive new research reveals for the first time, the truth behind the numerous UFO sightings reported in Britain between 1950 and 2000 and examines why the Government refused to admit it was undertaking investigations into them. Britain's X-Files screens Wednesday, 11 August at 8.30pm on ABC TV.

In 1950, a spate of UFO sightings by RAF pilots inspired the British government to set up the top-secret Flying Saucer Working Party. In 1952, UFOs re-appeared over southern England and sensationally, over the White House in Washington. As panic escalated, Winston Churchill demanded to know what was going on and the Ministry of Defence set up a permanent UFO Investigation Unit. We now know that over the next 50 years, the government unit secretly investigated and dismissed hundreds of UFO sightings.

Why did it take so many years for the government to admit its activities? This film travels back in time to examine the political climate in the early 1950s.The government's policy of official secrecy was in line with that of the American government and this strengthened the public belief in a global cover-up of the existence of aliens. But could their intention have been different? Was their aim in fact to disguise the fear that gripped top politicians and military personnel both sides of the Atlantic, that the Russians had developed a powerful new fighter aircraft? And could the sudden appearance of UFOs over Britain have been a consequence of this Cold War paranoia, rather than aliens visiting Earth?

Features eye witness accounts and interviews with former Flying Saucer Working Party members to examine whether rational explanations stand up to scrutiny.

The Big Picture: Britain's X-Files

Date: August 11 2004

By Greg Hassall

The main point of this British documentary - that the British Government took reports of UFOs seriously during the Cold War - could have been made in a few minutes; the rest is just padding. It traces reports of UFOs from the early '50s, when fear of secret Soviet weapons had many scanning the skies nervously, to the late '60s, when the popularity of LSD led to a spike in alien sightings. There are some cute B-movie clips and unintentionally amusing eyewitness accounts, but these are outweighed by dodgy re-enactments and sheer repetition. Ultimately, this is little more than a cultural curio; a reminder of more innocent times. It's entertaining in parts but the material doesn't justify a 55-minute documentary.


Seems like a lot happened on August ELEVENTH.







Your website authors are both Official Disclosure Project Representatives.

 The weight of this testimony, along with supporting government documents and other evidence, establishes beyond any doubt the reality of UFOs, extraterrestrial vehicles and life forms, and advanced energy and propulsion technologies resulting from the study of these objects. 

"A clear and on-going threat to the national security and world peace has arisen due to unsupervised actions that have led to the targeting and downing of these extraterrestrial objects. Related covert plans are in place to weaponize space. Since it can be proven that we are sharing space with other civilizations, it is critical that a full disclosure of this subject take place and that the National Missile Defense System/SDI be re-evaluated by policy makers in this new light."
