Overlooked Aspects of the Alien Presence (scroll down til you get to the January 10th entry)

Synopsis of the Alien Master Plan

John Keel – Operation Trojan Horse.pdf – Link to PDF copy of the extremely hard to come by and highly recommended “Operation Trojan Horse” by the late John Keel. I put this book on a very short list of impressive UFO research, not only for the thousands of historical records Mr. Keel sifted through in his research (most of which would probably have been lost and forgotten had it not been for his work in digging them up) along with his firsthand experience and investigative research, and the hundreds of interviews he’s conducted with people over the years, but also for the patterns that he spotted in the chaos………and the conclusions he draws from them, of which not very many other people were saying at that time, let alone now. It’s in my opinion that UFO researchers are indebted to Mr. Keel’s efforts.


Visitors from Time – The Secret of the UFOs- by Marc Davenport. Interesting, well thought out and presented book where the author tries to tie together all the seemingly separate phenomenon often noted during UFO sightings and close encounters. Davenport postulates that they can all be explained if one takes into account the idea that these things are not flying here from other planets, but rather, are maneuvering through time, and have some sort of time warping field surrounding their craft. The time warping field can account for everything from the way they cycle through a rainbow of colors, to the way they can pull high speed and right angle maneuvers that are impossible with our own technology and which no human could endure. Among the many other idiosyncracies of UFOs. As somebody on Amazon noted, it’s a must-have book for all serious UFO enthusiasts. I’ve learned a lot by reading it, things I hadn’t previously known about UFO encounters. It also corroborated multiple aspects of the one UFO encounter I experienced in north Portland (Oregon) in December, 2001. (Stationary craft shifting in size; rotating through an array of colors not seen in regular human aircraft, including orange, green, gold and purple; then suddenly taking off straight up into the air while shifting to white, and proceeding to engage in some terrifying high speed, back and forth, multiple right angle aerial maneuvers over the skies of north Portland and Vancouver Washington that are not possible with known conventional human aircraft. It was all nervously good….until that started to happen. Then I hightailed it back inside to hide out. O.o It figures that the encounter happened in the Pacific Northwest, next to the Cascade Mountains/Mt. Hood/Mt. St. Helens, a known hotbed of UFO and “woo” activity, and it was definitely 10 p.m., and what I think was a Wednesday night…..the one time that Fortean researcher John Keel pinpointed as the likliest time to be able to spot a UFO, determined by all the statistics he gathered over decades of research.)

Missing: 411 – The CanAm Missing Project   Prior to reading the “Missing: 411” series of non-fiction books I truly believed that the wilderness was the last safe place for people. Little did I know you’re probably safer in the urban jungle of any major city. O.o (Although after reading “A Sobering Coincidence” I realized that was no longer true either.)

“Missing: 411” is a compilation of missing person’s cases throughout North America that fit a specific criteria, involving people who have disappeared without a trace under mysterious, unexplainable circumstances in the wilderness. Most either turn up dead or are never found at all, and the few that are found alive often times can’t provide any real details about what exactly happened to them. Or the bits and pieces they do convey are stranger than fiction.

The books are compilations of all the known facts surrounding each person’s disappearance, and is a testament to the thousands of hours of dedicated research put in by author and police veteran David Paulides and his team of current and former law enforcement. They’ve combed through countless archives, personally interviewed surviving family members of some of the missing/deceased, FOIA’d everybody they could possibly FOIA and visited many of the sites where people have disappeared in order to get a better understanding of the lay of the land. The case histories are broken up into multiple books, almost 10 by now. Most books focus on a specific geographic region, but there are also several specialty topics, including “Hunters,” and “A Sobering Coincidence.”

David Paulides took what he learned from his decades in law enforcement and applied it to his research, so every case is presented as “just facts.” Straight up reporting of all known details, w/ no biases or agendas, no pet theories that he’s trying to cherry pick evidence to fit. It doesn’t matter how bizarre something sounds – if that’s what’s being reported by a witness/victim, then that’s what’s being reported, and he relays it verbatim. No theories are provided as to what the cause could be in each case – that’s left up to the readers to decide.

Over and over you see the same repeating – and astounding – details in the case histories presented:

  • People, but often small children, turning up either dead or alive many miles from where they originated, over extremely rough terrain, mountains and bodies of water that there is no way they could have traversed in the short time span between when they disappeared and when their bodies were found.
  • Sudden flood-level rains or huge snowstorms that “coincidentally” hit out of nowhere the second the person goes missing, disrupting any search efforts;
  • Trained bloodhounds either abruptly losing a trail, indicating the person seemed to just vanish into thin air, or being unable to pick up any scent/trail at all;
  • Dead and alive victims turning up very close to where they disappeared and in an area that had already been repeatedly searched by hundreds of volunteers on the ground and often by planes/helicopters, as if their bodies were deliberately put there to be found after the fact;
  • Children turning up alive in impossible locations, like on a rock in the middle of a raging creek, or thousands of feet up a mountain situated on a ledge;
  • Bodies, both dead or alive found 20 feet up in trees and missing most clothing; Many bodies found outside are in in impossible areas (including the middle of fenced in quarries) where they could only have been “dropped from above,” w/ bodily injuries reflecting that.
  • Many of the dead and alive children are found w/ one shoe missing;
  • Dead bodies all over North America repeatedly found on the ground in the same “face in the dirt”/“splayed limbs” position;
  • The large number of people who go missing while out berry picking, or dead bodies that are found tangled within berry bushes;
  • People repeatedly disappearing while in the back of the line of a hiking group or walking ahead on a trail where family/friends/group members were nearby, but nobody heard or saw a thing; the phenomenon where people seem compelled to break from a group that they’re in and either “go back home” or “go back to the car” or “go ahead on the trail” (which indicates mind influencing) and are never seen again.
  • Many of the missing, including those taken from groups/lines of hikers in broad daylight, were people with cognitive impairment issues: autistic, deaf, mute, physically disabled, elderly or too young to speak, as if they were targeted for that reason. (And in the case of mutes, toddlers and the cognitively impaired, being unable convey what happened to them if found.) Being that the cognitive or physical disability wasn’t usually obvious/visible makes it even more astounding that “stuff” could have known when selecting them to take out of everybody around them;
  • Alive children & adult victims found in an incoherent and scared/shocked state, unable to speak; alive victims found after many days who had no idea what happened or where they were, some even reporting that they “suddenly didn’t recognize their surroundings” (i.e., the scenery was suddenly completely different from one moment to the next; when factoring in all the other details of their cases, including distorted time, seems to indicate an interdimensional realm shift);
  • Children playing in their yards (usually with their pets) and usually bordering the woods, who were there one second and gone the next, or even disappearing from their homes in the middle of the night without a trace. Their dogs are almost always left alive and return home on their own, while the kids either turn up dead or are never seen again. In many instances the dogs seem traumatized or reluctant to return into the woods.
  • A large number of disappearances often take place in locals that have the word “devil” “Satan” “hell” “diablo” and other such telling words in their name. People from long ago had their reasons when giving names to certain areas.
  • David Paulides himself has also reported experiencing the phenomenon of being out in the wilderness and realizing there was no sign of wildlife, and everything had gone completely still. Yet when he looked up the treetops were all swaying to a breeze that didn’t exist down on the ground. It was like a bubble or a dome had been put over the area.

The National Park System has often thwarted attempts for David Paulides and his team to FOIA the cases files, or even the most basic of info. on the missing who have disappeared on NPS land. It becomes clear when reading about the various exchanges w/ Park Service employees that they absolutely know something, but are refusing to cooperate and divulge information despite being legally obligated to do so. In one case a Park Service employee literally taunted Paulides about the fact he would never receive a shred of information about the missing person in question.

The most shocking of all the books, for me, wound up being “A Sobering Coincidence,” involving countless young, healthy college aged/20-something men in the prime of life, usually smart, popular athletes from good families, who are being killed in multiple countries – U.S., Canada, England, etc. They often turn up as floaters in bodies of water – sometimes very shallow – usually miles from where they were last seen, and where the rate of decomposition doesn’t match how long they’ve been missing. If they’re even found at all. And in the cases where families had independent autopsies conducted, victims are often found w/ large amounts of GHB in their systems. Sometimes their wallets and clothing are found neatly folded in the middle of a downtown area, and the cell phones are almost always missing.

One male victim managed to wake up and struggle his way out of the body of freezing water where he’d been dumped, w/ no memory of anything, and which matches autopsies reporting that many of these guys were still alive when they were dumped in the water, then drowned.

There are also cases where the male victims made phone calls to loved ones reporting that people seemed to be chasing them, or they didn’t know where they were, sounding confused, scared, and even disoriented. Then the call drops, and they’re never seen again.

“Sobering Coincidence” might sound like straight forward serial killer….except in some cases victims were seen on CCTV entering a busy bar/restaurant, but never seen leaving. Friends saw them in the crowd, looked away, looked back….and they were gone. Or outside street cams show brief glimpses of victims walking along on the street….but have never once been able to get any footage of the moment they supposedly go into the river/lake, or disappear altogether. And that’s if the street cams were even working. Sometimes they’re “coincidentally” off/malfunctioning.

In the 411 book “Hunters” there’s an intriguing case where a female hunter describes witnessing what seemed to be a camouflaged being in the trees. She had a very uneasy/bad feeling like she was being watched. She’d never seen the movie “Predator,” but confirmed to her friends who showed it to her later that the light bending camouflaging effect of the “Predator” is what she saw of the being in the trees.

What’s important to note here is “the feeling of being watched,” “being the hunted,” as it’s a repeating theme that many people report experiencing out in the wild, including in the comments of David’s YouTube vids. They were overcome with an intensely negative feeling that they needed to immediately get out of wherever they were, that they were in the “cross hairs” of something. Always listen to intuition!

There’s also a Bigfoot aspect to some of these cases, especially any case involving a parent reporting a “large brown and black colored bear” running off with their child slung over its shoulder, or when a young child found alive reports being taken by a bear, who fed them berries. Paulides has two entire books devoted to Bigfoot alone, and for anyone who scoffs at the subject…they won’t after reading those books, I guarantee it. (That will be a separate review in the future.)

It’s obvious that no one single source could be responsible for the variety of circumstances presented. Some sources are malevolent, others trickster, others neutral/benign and maybe outright curious. And there’s definitely an interdimensional component going on, as well as areas where “UFO”/mysterious lights are also seen surrounding missing people.

These books were a total game changer for me, the most interesting (though often also extremely depressing) material I’ve read in the past two decades. As anybody who’s read my website knows, I’ve experienced a large amount of “woo” and abductions in my life, things of a completely glitchy, reality bending nature that have quite literally “ruined the world” for me. So yes, I’m totally aware that the entire world at large is a “loosh energy farm” and “an experiment,” with higher dimensional “stuff” overseeing it from “behind a dimensional curtain.”

BUT….when so many people that one encounters out in the world can’t hold a genuinely intelligent, interesting and ORIGINAL conversation and/or have zero awareness about anything meaningful or “woo” related, on top of the fact that most of the time things happening here are pretty uninteresting/stagnant – very controlled – to the point of feeling dead in many parts, then it trains you to believe that “the weird and the woo” is very limited, focused and targeted. Small pockets, and seeming to focus on particular people. Not just “OUT IN THE OPEN” all over the place, willy nilly – out in the desert! Inside a house in the middle of suburbia! in the middle of the forest! in a bar in the middle of a busy downtown urban city! up on a mountain! on a lake or a river! In a hotel in the middle of Los Angeles! In a rural backyard! You’re not safe anywhere! and happening to so many very mainstream, non-“woo” people. Well….these books flipped all of THOSE assumptions right on their head. Just had no idea it was to that level.

(BTW the “hotel in Los Angeles” incident I’m referring to is the Elisa Lam case, featured in “A Sobering Coincidence.” Quite possibly the most mind blowing, multiple layered synchronous cases I’ve ever heard of. I still can’t get over it. “Sobering Coincidence” is one of the key books people need to get, if nothing else.)

And it never occurred to me that humans are actually being hunted, and in particular young, healthy, athletic “alpha” types of males. It’s not just a “Hollywood movie plot.” (Whoever made “Predator” apparently knew a few things. :/ ) Nothing else has come close to provoking so much mystery, intrigue, questions, ponderings and conversation as these books have. (which again, includes the two Bigfoot books, to be reviewed at a later date.)

To buy the books click on this link: which goes straight to the author’s website. Unscrupulous people are trying to sell these books on Amazon, eBay, etc. jacked up to $200+ each in some cases, which is ludicrous, so just stick with the author’s website. Not only is it cheaper, but you’re directly supporting the author.

Silent Invasion – Ellen Crystall, Ph.D. The UFO invasion of the Pine Bush/Hudson Valley area of New York back in the 1980s. I was left a bit dumbfounded after reading this book, wondering how this went relatively unnoticed and unreported within the mainstream??? UFOs were out there practically every night, skimming over treetops and people’s houses….landing in fields…..and the world in general just looked the other way?? (with the exception of one featured spot on “PM Magazine” where the whole thing was treated like a joke.) Not Ellen Crystall though, she was out giving these things chase on the roads and in the fields, taking pictures, rounding up whoever she could get to go out chasing with her, and even reported that these beings were involved in some sort of digging and drilling underground in the middle of the night. Possibly mining for certain elements, as that area contains rare elements not found anywhere else in North America. Or else just general underground base/tunnel activity, which there was also evidence for as Ellen discovered.

This is a must-read for anybody who’s interested in UFO-ology.

Extra-Terrestrial Friends and Foes – George C. Andrews. The gist of the book is revealing that we’re being lied to by the government about the true nature of the alien presence in the world, while covering a wide assortment of subjects relating to alien lore: The hybrid breeding program, the increase in missing children in certain countries, underground bases, the secret treaty-gone-awry between the U.S. government and the “Grays” and whoever their masters are, the various assortment of aliens that have been visiting Earth and the different agendas, the demonic/interdimensional possibly alien influence on Adolf Hitler, the supposed Virgin Mary sightings and the evidence that they are holographically projected images originating from UFOs, disinformation authors and government-sponsored disinformation, including the hoaky CIA-produced 1988 document “UFO Coverup? – LIVE!”, crop circles, indications of ET manipulation in human affairs contained within history and mythology, the extent of the alien cover up and people who are “suicided” when they get too close to things, and lots more, including excerpts from other works and guest contributions from various researchers and authors.

The Love Bite – Alien Interference in Human Love Relationships – Eve Lorgen Until reading Eve Lorgen’s work in 2001 I had never considered the possibility that love relationships could be manipulated to serve something else’s purpose. After reading through her website I came away realizing that a couple of my past relationships have the “checklist” of love-bite traits – instant and intense “burning the candle at both ends” type of love affair connection, full of psychic woo-woo mind reading, and then abruptly shutting off overnight, either on my end, or with the guy in question – and they definitely seemed to be artificially set up in the ways in which we would come together. Pandora’s Box warning though ;) : Once you start to question the nature of your personal relationships in terms of being artificially manipulated then the rest of your life has to be analyzed. A must-read for all abductees, whether “alien” or MILAB.

The Threat – The Secret Agenda. David Jacobs, Ph.D. Good counterbalance to the new age love ‘n light pro-alien propaganda, looking at the insidious side to the hybrid breeding program and what the aliens may really be here for. See also this piece by David Jacobs in Issue #1 of JAR Magazine called “A Picture We May Not Wish to Gaze Upon.”

MILABS OperationsJames Bartley. Excellent article that covers many aspects of MILABS not being discussed anywhere else. Mr. Bartley aptly covers everything from “Beam me up” transport technology to the fact that the secret factions have the ability to manipulate time and space. He also gets into off-planetary operations, frequency control of targets, both the physical and “astral ops,” physical abductions versus virtual reality/dream time programming, end-times apocalyptic programming, the phenomenon of both preferential and abusive treatment of targets, the differences between MILABS and Monarchs, and much more. A must-read that I’m very enthusiastic about! Click here for the rest of James Bartley’s writings. And here’s a link to James’ website, The Cosmic Switchboard.

MILABS – Military Mind Control and Alien AbductionsDr. Helmut Lammer and Marion Lammer. Having never heard of the idea of the military/government taking and messing with people, I was stuck in “unanswered question limbo” back during 2002…..until reading this book. I knew I’d been taken, I had my proof for that, but I didn’t fit the stereotypical alien abduction scenario at all. Something else was clearly going on here….but what?? This book provided my big “Eureka!” breakthrough moment, which is why I still have to recommend it despite its flaws. There are many useful insights and corroborations to be found in the Lammers’ “MILABS,” but do read with discernment as there seems to be a subtle agenda going on with this book to dismiss certain aspects of abductions, as well as using silly comic book-style illustrations that undermine this important subject. But, still a must-read for any MILABS/mind control researcher.

Close Encounters of the Possession Kind- Dr. William Baldwin. Dr. Baldwin is a hypnotist specializing in the phenomenon of entity/alien attachments on people and how to rid their presence. The book also delves into the aliens’ etheric implants and techno gadgets that they attach to their abduction targets. A good book for those who believe themselves to be an abductee, but hadn’t realized this component of it all.

The Mothman Prophesies – John Keel. In the thirteen months leading up to the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15, 1967, Point Pleasant West Virginia was inundated with weirdness. UFOs, Men In Black, and most notorious of all…the Mothman, a red eyed winged flying apparition about 7-8 feet tall. Author John Keel was there in the middle of it all while it was happening, becoming intertwined in the lives of many Point Pleasant residents and experiencing the paranormal weirdness firsthand. He chronicled his investigations in this book, which is a great read. There are very few books like this, where the author was actually there while events happened. (“Silent Invasion,” mentioned earlier, would be another example of this type of book.) It’s also an interesting study in group synchronicity and hyperdimensional manipulation from behind the scenes. John Keel had his extended network of people that he was communicating with around the country via phone and mail, (the days before the internet, after all) and some of the synchs that began happening and the way things were “lining up” among his network were truly amazing. I came away from this book concluding that not only are there hyperdimensional elements, of course, but that they also have a tendency to toy with humans just for the fun of it.

Conspiracy – Exposing agendas, Mind control, chemtrails, HAARP, NWO, 9/11, the dumbing down of society, etc.


The Illuminati Formula For Creating a Totally Undetectable Mind Control Slave Fritz Springmeier and Cisco Wheeler. Hands down the single most detailed and comprehensive source on Illuminati/occult based mind control. Mind control victim Cisco Wheeler worked with Fritz Springmeier to put forth the techniques that are supposedly employed to compartmentalize the mind, how the systems are set up within the mind, what the symbolisms, trigger words and number codes are, (sometimes supposedly minus a few words or numbers so as to not trigger programmed people who may be reading) as well as information regarding electronic mind control, implants, ritual cult programming and assigning demons to targets, among many other things including Disney, and the Wizard of Oz. It’s like a handbook in a way getting into some heavy duty dark material. Not for the faint of heart. Recommend easing your way into the subject with lighter fare first if you are new to the topic. Whatever the real deal may be with Fritz and the personal controversy surrounding him there’s still no question that many of the symbolisms and specific mind control details noted in “Illuminati Formula” are running rampant within media, matching spot-on in uncanny ways. Since I see evidence for what he’s talking about both in the world around me and in my own personal situation, I continue to recommend it.

Mind Control, World Control; and Mass ControlJim Keith. Two books that give a solid overview of all things relating to government mind control on both individual targets and the masses at large, by the late Jim Keith.

Mind Control in Amerika – Five Easy Steps to Create a Manchurian CandidateGunther Rassbacher. Excellent article that outlines the government’s selection and training of youths from America’s juvenile incarceration system to become programmed “Manchurian Candidates.” I recommend this piece in my mind control writings because I recognized what Gunther was talking about as being the situation of my younger brother Joe, who’d been locked up between the ages of 14-17 and then continually followed, monitored and taken after being released. Much of what Gunther writes about was spot on for what I witnessed of Joe, and there were things that Joe said to me that were word for word verbatim what’s in this article. So he seems to definitely know what he’s talking about.

Secret, Don’t Tell – The Encyclopedia of Hypnotism Carla Emery. Comprehensive historical overview of hypnosis that delves into the use of unethical hypnosis, as well as government mind control projects. Well researched, extremely detailed, and a very valuable resource that also contains many additional book, article and website links and references. The late Ms. Emery, who was a victim of mind control herself, put a lot of time and effort into compiling this work and even went into hiding while writing it. If it wasn’t for the intervention of “something higher” one night, then this book wouldn’t exist at all, as explained in the very first opening introduction. !

Angels Don’t Play This HAARPDr. Nick Begich, Jeannie Manning. Historical overview on the HAARP array in Alaska and the Tesla technology it’s derived from; what it is, what it’s supposed to do, and the impact it will have on the planet and life forms.

Montalk High quality website with articles by the author Montalk regarding metaphysics, conspiracy, aliens/abduction, the Matrix Control System, and alternative science. Click here for his new book, ‘Fringe Knowledge for Beginners.’ See also his excellent nine part ‘Gnosis’ series that he just completed in October, 2011 that dissects what this reality really is, and how and why it’s gone so awry.

The Universal Seduction – Many contributing authors

Strange Days, Strange Skies Concerning chemtrails…

Chemtrail Central More chemtrail info…

The Underground History of American Education; and Dumbing Us Down – The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Education – John Taylor Gatto. Former New York State Teacher of the Year, John Gatto quit teaching via a letter to the Wall Street Journal OpEd page in 1991, declaring that he was no longer willing to hurt children. He has since moved on to campaigning for public education reform, and these books outline where our educational system has gone wrong. Gatto has written many other books that you can find on Amazon as well.

Alice in Wonderland and the World Trade Center DisasterDavid Icke. Expose that questions all the plot holes and discrepancies of the official story of September 11th. The official story doesn’t add up, worse yet, it’s an outright lie. This is a must-read for anybody who’s questioning. After presenting a brief re-cap on the “Illuminati” and world situation, David Icke walks the reader step by step through the events of that day and all the questions it spawns, thoroughly covering every possible plot hole and discrepancy you can think of, and then some. I myself haven’t believed the official story since the end of the first week after 9/11, when the Orange County Register (in SoCal) ran a big story complete with colored illustrations to prove to the reading audience how the planes were able to take down both towers. Never mind that they went down looking identical to a controlled demolition. The effort to convince the public with large, full page colored diagrams was so over the top that I knew right then – this is bullshit. I frowned and even said that out loud while tossing the paper aside in disgust. They were trying WAY too hard to the point where they overshot it. Shortly thereafter I was getting ready for work one morning and felt compelled to switch the radio dial to 106.7 KROQ out of nowhere, a station I no longer listened to, based out of Pasadena. And that’s when I heard this fast talking British guy explaining to morning hosts Kevin and Bean about how the events of 9/11 were orchestrated by something known as the “Illuminati.” His name was David Icke. His charisma and rapid fire delivery of some of the discrepancies and plot holes in the story had me riveted, and I sat down on the floor to listen, glued to the radio even though my ride was due to pick me up in only five minutes. I didn’t care though. All I knew was that the official story was total bunk, and here was the first person I’d heard anywhere, but especially within the media, voicing this perspective. Hallelujah! Kevin and Bean laughed and ridiculed him, but I made mental note of his website address when it was mentioned, with plans to look it up later at work. So there was at least one person glued to David’s every word that morning as the radio signal went out to literally, millions upon millions of people in the Los Angeles/Orange County region. I hadn’t done any formal conspiracy research yet at this point, but this infamous David Icke interview is what started it all and sent me on my path. The rest is history. (btw David Icke references this particular interview on page 205 of the book, the last paragraph of the chapter.)

Psychic Happenings


Practical Psychic Self Defense – Understanding and Surviving Unseen Influences – Robert Bruce. I had the chance to see Robert Bruce speak in person for free at our local metaphysical bookshop in 2005 and I jumped at the chance since I’d read this book and found it to be the real deal. Mr. Bruce knows what he’s talking about and his book is filled with personal anecdotes from his hands on experience dealing with neg entities and possession, written in a personable, accessible and level headed way. People don’t realize how much neg entities run rampant exerting their influence on people, and for that reason I consider this book an absolute must-read. After reading it you may realize in retrospect that certain things that have happened to you in life or particular behaviors/feelings/moods that you or somebody you know have exhibited were really the influence of a neg entity. So much of what he talks about in this book I experienced first hand when I spent a year living in a paranormally polluted apartment, which I called The Vortex and I only wish I could have had this book available to me at the time to help me with what I was going through! Unfortunately it wasn’t published until 2002, and my “Vortex” stuff happened in 2000-01. And many other things he talks about I later encountered from 2002 – 2007. Click on the above link to his website, Astral Dynamics, and check out the book’s table of contents and summary to give you an idea of everything the book gets into. Hearing Mr. Bruce in person relaying some of his stories that he talks about in the book was really neat, and he was a likeable and down to earth guy.


Alternative History/The Situation on Planet Earth

Who Built the Moon?Christopher Knight & Alan Butler. This book isn’t perfect – it was written by two people, so the writing doesn’t always flow and wasn’t well edited, it seems to have been slapped together on the fly, and the “photos” section is really just a collection of generic stock pics, and one of the pics is incorrectly labeled to boot (!!) BUT….BUT!….hang in there! :D Because the message of this book and the discoveries that the authors made is well worth the read. The authors discovered that the mathematical properties of the earth-moon-sun system defy statistical chance, and the implications of it all are pretty astounding. It’s one thing for a person to say that they believe the moon is a construct – it’s another thing entirely when they have the mathematical statistics to back it up. But math-phobes need not worry – this isn’t a “math and physics” book, so anybody can follow along. Also see this interview with Christopher Knight from New Dawn Magazine for more background on where these guys are coming from.

Survivors of Atlantis – Their Impact on World Culture- Frank Joseph. There are a lot of alternative history books out there, but this one was well done in my opinion. So many interesting points and connections are made in this book, and what I enjoyed in particular were the details of the four (Atlantean) cataclysms that Frank Joseph was able to put together using history, anthropology, geology, astronomy, and climatology, as well as the cross comparison to the various Native American legends that all say the same basic thing, describing survivors from a catastrophe that came from the east and integrated with their tribes. There’s also the fascinating opening introduction regarding the massive copper mining operation in the upper Michigan peninsula that coincided with Europe’s Bronze Age, “Menomonie Indian tradition speaks of fair-skinned mariners who had come in the past to ‘dig out the shiny bones’ of the Earth Mother….” and the little known area of Poverty Point, Louisiana, a city that existed 3,000 years before Columbus and whose concentric rings of alternating land and water canals matched the description of Plato’s Atlantis. Possibly the Gulf of Mexico entrance up the Mississippi and into Michigan where the copper mines were.

The Gods of Eden – William Bramley. When Mr. Bramley started out trying to research the origins of human warfare, “UFOs” and “aliens” were the last thing on his mind. But his historical research began revealing that non-human intelligences seem to be directing affairs on planet Earth from behind the scenes. Down to earth, informative and thought provoking, “The Gods of Eden” (released in 1990, before David Icke and Jim Marrs) winds its way back through human history and shows the thread that links politics, war, religion, and even great plagues. I find this book to be superior to Jim Marrs’ “Rule by Secrecy” from 2000 because it thankfully avoids Marrs’ mistake of tying everything together at the end into the work of Zechariah Sitchin and “the Annunaki.”

The Convoluted Universe, Books I – IV -:Dolores Cannon Dolores Cannon is a hypnotist investigating past lives. Ms. Cannon has been regressing people for years and while most sessions are pretty mundane, every once in a while something really interesting comes out..such as future lives, parallel realities and incarnations as non-human entities on other planets. These books are a compilation of those spectacular and revelatory sessions she’s experienced with people, with information that will expand your view of reality if it wasn’t already.

The Stargate Conspiracy – Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince. Book that challenges the Egypt-Mars link that has worked its way into the alternative history research circles over the past twenty years or so, as well as delving into insidious government tinkering within the new age/channeling movement….something that many, if not most, new agers seem to be completely unaware of.
