On Twitter I've been writing some threads about the new sensation in the UFO world, the much flirted with by Jimmy Church and Roderick Martin and Alan Steinfeld elevated consciousness known as Añjali*.
If you know me, you know I don't believe aliens are visiting Earth - so I'm not too interested in how her silly story will damage serious UFO investigation. The culty angle, on the other hand...
Anyway, I created this extensive timeline of her background for future reference as this thing heats up. Anjali has pinky-swear-promised that before the end of this year she and excavationer extraordinaire Wayne will lead an expedition team of crack scientists and journalists to the alien base in a mountain in the Mojave, and bring back indisputable evidence of the existence of higher beings living there. She calls it "soft disclosure" which makes me think this evidence isn't going to be anything to write home about.
Below is a list of my untranscended Tweet storms:
I'll be honest: I'd rather continue my sensory experiential learning while inhabiting my 3rd density biotechnology than transcend with the likes of Anjali, especially if that means I get a trip to Orion out of it. However, if you're more of a transcending type or perhaps want to join Anjali's team back to the tunnel to meet actual real live ETs, you can follow her exploits here or here.
Like Jimmy Church and Peter Robbins, Anjali blocked me on Twitter - but then accepted my (accidental) "connect" request on LinkedIn. Needless to say, I'm feeling a little insecure about our relationship at the moment.
*Gave up with the tilde thing after the first one, sorry. I only have a third density keyboard.
For the past six weeks I've been corresponding with Steve Pierce, one of the witnesses to the Travis Walton incident in 1975. At the time he was a 17-year-old "new kid" in town, whose mother made him take the job on Mike Rogers' team even though his uncles and cousin had just quit because Mike hadn't paid on time.
I've updated my Consequences page with some information Steve gave (with his permission). While he didn't believe the sighting was a hoax, he has always maintained that Travis was not abducted by aliens but that the government used mind control to get him out of the truck and take him to Area 51.
Over the course of our discussion, in which he shared some personal stories about his journey with this defining event in his life, it seems he's been able to resolve a little of his cognitive dissonance with these statements:
"I never never really believed it happened the way Travis said it happened. I don't believe we went back to the same spot where Travis was zapped."
"I always knew something wasn't right about that night the night it happened."
Steve told me he has talked to Travis about certain aspects of that night, and events leading up to it, resulting in an angry response from Travis and a refusal to correct errors in his book. Steve claims Travis blackballed him from conferences for a time (by saying he, Travis, would not appear if Steve was scheduled to appear).
This incident has manifested in toxic relationships between the men involved. Travis and Mike are stuck with each other, despite a strong mutual dislike and disrespect, locked in the lie that neither can reveal without implicating themselves in defrauding the UFO community for decades.
There is a heartwarming scene in the movie Travis where Ken Peterson gets emotional upon returning to the "site" with Travis. Knowing as I do just a small fraction of how the hoax affected the lives of the innocent witnesses in the truck that night, this scene makes me sick. Travis Walton, who should've come clean the moment he handed over those National Enquirer checks 45 years ago, makes me sick.
Will he ever grow up and be man enough to admit what he did and to withstand the backlash? He has reframed his abduction as a resurrection story. I live in hope he can reframe it as a redemption story.
Travis Walton is not the first incurious alien abductee and won't be the last.
Following his recent interview on "Theories of Everything with Curt Jaimungal" I've written two Twitter threads about what was discussed:
1. Weird stuff about a vanishing fetus (not recommended)
2. Curious stuff for an incurious man covering astronomy, geology, xenobiology (from the velour of their suits to the whites of their eyes) and so much more.
Just kidding, there's no physical evidence.
But I have updated the Physical evidence page with information about Betty's rollaway 2D... I mean holographic 3D star map. This map revealed Zeta Reticuli to be the aliens' home planet, and famously included a star that wasn't known in 1964 when she drew the map. Sounds impressive!
Call me PB, hold the jelly. I'm blogging about the Three-Dollar Kit.
