The Shift 2 with Ian R Crane

See HPANWO Links column for the website of Ian R Crane, including the Shift 2 pages. Here’s a direct link to the event I’m reviewing here:

 It’s been a while since I last went to an event with Ian R Crane (Or Ian Crane, as he used to be known as before he discovered that a Liverpool estate agent with that name was getting all his emails). This is mainly down to the financial problems I’ve been facing since I was booted out of Hospital Portering, see:; and as a result I’ve been unable to attend any conferences so far this year. However if you listen to one of Ian’s shows you’ll often gain new insights into situations like mine. Old phrases like “Every cloud has a silvery lining” are very true, but there’s an explanation behind why they’re true that is even more silvery.

Although I preach about the fallacies and foolishness of prejudice, I’m afraid I’m not immune to them. One of my most serious flaws in this department is my dislike for the city of Birmingham. I tend to regard it as a grim, unattractive and Godforsaken place. Ustane and I sat on a train, drowsy from our early rise, staring out of the rain-splashed windows at the crumbling red brick walls and shattered glass windows of abandoned Victorian factories, modern freight containers stacked up like Lego blocks and ash-coloured canals lined by graffiti-daubed concrete piles. We left New Street Station and were surrounded by the bright lights and elaborate, animated billboards of the Bull Ring. This was once a traditionally classic market dating back to the Middle Ages, rather like Oxford’s Covered Market; but while the latter has been carefully preserved in its original form, the Bull Ring has been crushed under a gargantuan postmodern steel-and-glass cathedral to consumerism. The researcher Andy Thomas has often remarked how the only structures modern Western society builds that come close to matching the temples of the ancient civilizations or the cathedrals of Mediaeval Europe are shopping centres, banks and offices of business and commerce; buildings that have a purely materialistic function. So he’s effectively saying that according to our culture materialism and consumerism is God! The Bull Ring is a perfect example. (See: I had been careful to bring my A to Z of Birmingham with me to Ustane’s house, but went and forgot to take it with me to Birmingham; not very helpful! But we soon found the venue with the help of a printout map from the Tourist Information Office (an institution I had not expected to find in Birmingham). The event was to take place in a Thistle Hotel, where Ian always seems to end up. Across the road from it was St Chad’s Cathedral and the sight of it gave me a nasty flashback. This is a story that really needs its own full-length article, which I plan to write, but to cut to the chase: Some years ago, in 1997 in fact, I went on a pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Lourdes in the south of France. I’ve mentioned before that I’m from a Catholic family and there was a time when I was fairly devout, before I “lapsed” and rejected all religion. The pilgrimage was something of an emotional rollercoaster, and it was not till long afterwards that I understood that it was mostly dips not rises. The management of the trip was very hierarchical and one of the “junior foreman” was a very unpleasant little man who took an instinctive and immediate dislike to me. After the end of the pilgrimage there was a mass held at St Chad’s Cathedral two weeks afterwards for the “brancardiers”, volunteers who helped look after the disabled pilgrims who came with us; I was one of them and wanted to attend. However the “junior foreman” told me that it was three weeks afterwards, not two; so I travelled all the way from Oxford to Birmingham and turned up at St Chad’s a week late. I sat on a bench outside for two and half hours waiting for the others to arrive, getting cold and miserable. As Ustane and I approached the cathedral I saw that the bench I’d sat on all these years ago was still there, and I felt my embarrassment and anger bite. Even after fifteen years it still recurs occasionally. However something remarkable happened a few minutes later that was a good prelude to the main theme of the event. Ian was playing quiet music on his speakers as the audience was arriving and one of the tracks was Song to the Trinity by Mike Stanley and Jo Boyce, a Christian pop duo who came on the pilgrimage with us, see: The song was a cover version with different lyrics, but the beautiful tune was unmistakable. Mike and Jo’s music was definitely one of the few rises on my Lourdes rollercoaster. I’ve got the CD at home, but I’ve not listened to it for over ten years; how come I suddenly heard it just minutes after my return to St Chad’s? Coincidence? Read on!
The room Ian had booked was a small and modest venue compared to his flamboyant past enterprises like AV, see: The room he’d hired was behind a small entrance leading off from the kitchen that looked like the door to a broom cupboard. Ustane and I were the first to arrive and we were surprised to see nobody at the desk by the door. Then we looked around to see Ian setting up the DVD stall. His short and compact frame moved energetically between a pile of cardboard boxes and the trestle table. We soon learned that the Shift 2 tour was entirely a one-man operation. Ian transports everything in his van, he sets it all up and puts it all away afterwards entirely by himself. This is hard work for him, but it keeps the ticket price down. In the neighbouring suite to our event was a much more lavish conference hosted by some charity or other. It was held in a large auditorium with a big stage display, a neat reception desk, a tea and coffee bar and all the trimmings, a bit like AV. Sure, it would have been a lot more comfortable if Ian had laid on such luxuries, but then it would have cost an awful lot more; it’s a simple equation. Shift 2 is very good value, when you consider it was seven hours long, almost as long as a live David Icke show. This is a format that I’ve not seen from Ian before. I’ve attended numerous events in which he does a one or two hour lecture, but never before an all-day workshop.

 A minute or two behind us, the other attendees arrived. I was very surprised not to meet anybody whom I recognized, as these events tend to be as much social get-togethers for the conspiratorially-aware community as lectures. However Ustane and I soon began conversations with the others and before long provisional friendships emerged in the accelerated and condensed way they tend to in the intensity of a conference. We spoke to a cheerful young woman named Leah and a man who had had a dream the night before that he saw the auditorium we were in, even though he’d never been there before. Once again, the theme of manifestation, premonition and synchronicity emerged, and it was to become curiouser and curiouser as Ian began his speech and revealed that the previous week when he’d spoken in Portsmouth one of the attendees had experienced something even weirder: He had been severely delayed for some reason which meant that by the time he left for Portsmouth to see Shift 2 he only had half an hour left before the start of the event, but unfortunately he lived seventy miles away and so he began driving there in frustration, consigning himself to having to miss the first half of the event. But somehow he made it on time! How? He has no idea. It seemed that he experienced something similar to the phenomenon of “missing time” that is often a symptom of alien abduction. In this case maybe no aliens were involved, but something else which I’ll come to later. I would like to have spoken to that man, so I must say I was kicking myself a bit because I’d originally planned to go to the Shift 2 event in Portsmouth, but had switched my booking to Birmingham.
Ian’s workshop was split into two parts; the first was to be about the material realm, the scientific and political research which is tangible and can be analyzed. Ian is a keen student and pundit of what he calls “deep geopolitics”. This means he has a similar relationship with Fleet Street as Richard Hoagland has with hairspray manufacturers; in fact Ian gets a copy of virtually every newspaper available delivered to his door regularly and spends hours sifting through every single one of them. This sounds like an unenviable job, but it does pay off because it’s remarkable what material sometimes escapes into the mainstream media through whoever or whatever is attempting to stop it, to whoever is willing to take the effort to pick it up. I get the impression this job has become easier for Ian because he told us that “They” are getting arrogant, and they’re being more honest and open about what they’re up to; they’re releasing more and more of their true actions and motives into the public domain. “They” refers to the people he calls “Those who consider themselves to be the rightful rulers of the planet”. I find this a bit of a mouthful, despite the fact that it was recently shortened from: “Those who consider themselves to be the rightful rulers of a global fiefdom”. And you can’t even form a nice, elegant acronym out of it: “TWCTTBTRROTP” or: “TWCTTBTRROAGF”? Nah! For this reason I will continue to use the word: “Illuminati”, even though Ian dislikes this term and never uses it himself. The reason he thinks that the media is being more outspoken and less deceptive is down to something he’s mentioned before: that they have to tell us what they’re up to on one level so that the onus (Apologies for using this Skepperism) is on us to work it out and react to it. If we don’t react then we give them a mandate to do more and to go further. Another reason is that they may believe, falsely perhaps, that they will be able to negate Karma by doing this. It also fits in well with the Social Darwinism that is a prominent feature in the philosophy of Satanism: That the blame for violence lies not with the perpetrator but the victim, if the victim is vulnerable and therefore makes it easy for the perpetrator to carry out their violence. According to the Illuminati, if we don’t retaliate when we are abused then we, like the rape-victim, are “asking for it”.
Ian asked us, as he often did in this very interactive workshop, whether we thought this year, 2012, would be just another year. Few if any of us raised our hands. He congratulated us, because this is the year that the Mayan Long Count calendar changes over, see: And of course we’re now in the fifth year of the financial crisis, and he is convinced that this is a contrived event. Even the former head of Goldman Sachs, Greg Smith, is speaking out about the corrupt nature of his old company. The board of Goldman Sachs in private speak with open derision about the majority of their investors which they call “muppets”, while the important members who are destined for better fortune are called “players”; however I imagine one can become the other at a word from one of the board-members. (I wonder which James Randi is! See: The current financial domination of the world dates back to the signing of the act in 1913 which brought into being the Federal Reserve; luckily that act has a sunset clause and was always planned to expire after just ninety-nine years; well the Fed Act was signed on December the 21st of December 1913… so is there anybody else who still thinks 2012 is going to be just another year? There’s a video on YouTube of a stockbroker called Alessio Rastani speaking with really explosive candour that was later pulled by the BBC; here it is: Rastani himself has been discredited and demonized as a fraud and attention-seeker; a common tactic used against people telling the truth. Rastani is basically and frankly telling the viewer that the financial system is doomed, while the Government is trying to keep the public harnessed to the hopes of its recovery packages. Ian’s parents are in their eighties and Ian often tells them that they are the last generation of working class people in which the family can live off the single basic week income of the father. Today in a working-class family it is rare to find a situation in which both parents don't have to work every hour they can just to make ends meet. The Euro Crisis, together with the collapse of the US Dollar are the lead weights that will drown the world. Nigel Farage, one of the few politicians I’d trust to tell me the time of day, is willing to speak out in the European Parliament and expose this elephant in the room: Unfortunately, it’s a little-known fact that the EU Parliament is just an adversary body and has no legislative powers at all. The unelected EU President and his cabinet make all the decisions, even if every MEP votes against them. (Farage was involved in a light aircraft crash during his 2010 General Election campaign from which he luckily survived. I wonder if it was an accident.) Greece, as a nation, no longer exists, and is now wholly-owned collateral of the European Central Bank. Even its priceless antiquities have been sold to try and alleviate its horrific debts. It seems the crucial kingpin, as has been the case for the last few years, is Ireland, which is why Ian has been touring Ireland a lot lately with his friend Jim Corr, see: On May the 31st the Irish people go to the polls in a referendum, just like they did with the Treaty of Lisbon; and so there is one more chance to scupper the EU agenda, but will the “NO” vote work this time? Are the Irish people awake enough to avoid the same trap they fell into over Lisbon?
Ian gave people a few tips on how to survive the coming economic meltdown. He recommends investing any capital you have into gold and other precious metals (an academic notion for me!) However, the most crucial issue has to be the basics of life; if the banks slam their doors and all the shops are shut where will we get food and water? Ian recommends keeping a cache of supplies: bottles of water, cans of food, toilet paper etc; enough to last a few weeks. I know on one level this makes sense, but I feel uncomfortable considering even this most soft brand of survivalism, see: The problem I have is this: If you are the only person in your street who has such a cache your neighbours may well come knocking on your door asking for you to share some of it with them. Then of course you have to decide whether to do so or not, but it’s likely that these people at your door will be hungry, thirsty and very frightened; in this frame of mind they may not take “no” for an answer. Then you will be faced with another choice: whether or not to stop them by force; in which case we will have to arm ourselves. It could be either that or losing all your precious supplies. Ian doesn’t really address this question. The idea of turning a shotgun or bludgeon against people I normally talk over the fence with and let borrow my hedge-clippers repels me deeply. I think I’ll have to take my chances without the supplies.
Ian feels hope with how Iceland has addressed this question. This is the only country in Europe which is right now significantly recovering from the recession; this is because it didn’t make the same mistake that the other countries did: getting “cash injections” from the International Monetary Fund and therefore contracting their country away to them through debt. Iceland’s wisdom could come from the fact that they’ve been using the former “Economic Hitman” John Perkins as a consultant, see: When he addressed the Women’s’ Institute, Ian said: “Men are fucking things up!” (See: and maybe he’s right because Iceland is unique in being ruled by mostly female politicians and their Prime Minister is somebody called Johanna Sigurtharsdottir, Europe’s first openly homosexual head of government. So if you have any gay and lesbian friends, listen to what they have to say!
 Ian makes a lot of predictions about what is to come in the future; often he is right, not because he’s psychic, but because he understands how geopolitics works; he's "read the script", as he says. I’ve had a go at this myself and have a hit to my credit. A couple of years ago I said that Argentina would begin threatening the Falkland Islands again and was right, see: Ian thinks a war with Iran is unlikely because Iran is simply too big and strong; its population of over sixty million are very supportive of their current ruler Mahmoud Ahmedinajad and will not tolerate a regime change there. Nevertheless it is suspicious that the USS Enterprise is currently deployed in the Gulf region. I refer in this case not to Captain Kirk’s fictional starship, but to the US Navy’s oldest aircraft carrier. She was commissioned long before the Star Trek TV series was ever broadcast and is on her last mission before being taken to the breakers yard. The thing is, Enterprise is nuclear-powered and so it will cost many times as much to dispose of her safely as it would a conventionally-powered vessel. However this cost could be alleviated if she could... meet with an “unfortunate accident” that caused her to sink at sea. At the same time if she were attacked, supposedly by an enemy, it would be a new 9/11 that would horrify and galvanize the public into supporting a new war; not necessarily against Iran, but against anybody else the Government blamed for the incident. And because Enterprise is such an old ship there would be little loss to the US Navy’s capabilities. There’s a direct parallel here between this hypothesis and Pearl Harbour. The ships sunk by the Japanese in the Pearl Harbour attack were the old fleet battleships which were very much symbols of American seapower in the eyes of the public. However anybody better-informed in naval strategy will admit that by 1941 the old big-gun battleship was very much an obsolete weapons platform. The decisive weapons in the Pacific War were actually the aircraft carrier and the submarine. The Japanese flew right over the Pearl Harbour Submarine Base and never touched it and all; the aircraft carriers were very conveniently out at sea at the time on manoeuvres.
 Ian has intensively analyzed how one of the biggest lies, Climate Change, is being used as the snowplough for a whole array of globalist and tyrannical regulations. Dr David Bellamy, who spoke at AV2 and 4, see:, was schmoozed by a group of Elitists, led by the Aga Khan, in an attempt to make him the “Professor Global Warming” in Britain; to his credit he refused. Interestingly Bellamy saw Tony Blair and the Conservative Party leader William Haig on another table and his host told him that the Elite were trying to decide which of them would become the UK’s next Prime Minister. Obviously Blair was the lucky one. Haig himself was photographed in “compromising positions” with a young man on his staff; perhaps there are other photos being held back that have kept Haig in the kennel on pain of them being sent to Ffion.
 On the 27th of July the 2012 London Olympics will begin and Ian thinks it’s very likely that some kind of false flag terrorist event will occur during the games; he prophesizes at the Closing Ceremony. I would have thought that for full effect and public awareness it would need to take place at the Opening Ceremony; after all, who bothers watching the Closing Ceremony? But there are important Occult elements to the date, the 12th of August and also Ian thinks some clues were left for us in the Closing Ceremony of the last Olympics, Beijing 2008. At the end of every Olympics Closing Ceremony there’s a scene that is themed on the city that will become the next Olympic host, and in this case it was of course London. The Olympic flag is handed over to representatives of the next nation in line. There is a video of it online at the time of writing, here: But according to Ian, the video doesn’t last long before being taken down so I advise you to download it. In case you’re reading this when the link is dead I’ll describe it: A London bus drives along a road made up to look like a London street, with zebra crossings and traditional bus stops, a lollypop lady carries her pole on it. The bus drives up to the podium surrounded by dancers carrying thirteen umbrellas representing the thirteen victims of the Tavistock Square bus during the 7/7 attacks, and also 13 is a Satanic number. The bus door slides opens and a young girl is standing there, representing the Goddess. She steps out and is handed a football by the lollypop lady. Then she returns to the bus by walking on top of the dancers, representing the submission of the people to the Goddess. Then the bus’ top deck opens and falls apart looking exactly like the 7/7 bus did. The interior is covered in a material that looks like grass and the dancers cling to the grass: an almost perfect representation of the 7/7 scene. Then the singer Leona Lewis rises from the bus on the top of a pole, again a Goddess symbol. Then on another platform Jimmy Page, the rock star, who is also a devotee of Aleister Crowley and even used to own Crowley’s old home at Loch Ness, starts playing the song Whole Lotta Love by his old band Led Zeppelin and Leona Lewis sings it; in the background we see the Olympic flame. Ian thinks this represents the alchemical wedding between Satan and the Goddess and the Tavistock Square bombing is therefore a human sacrifice. Jimmy Page probably realizes this, but the other participants are in all likelihood ignorant of what they took part in. I’ve written a lot about the film-maker Roland Emmerich and the suspicious themes in his films, but there is a strange reference to London in his ignoble epic 2012, see: In one scene, for no apparent reason, a map of the London Underground is shown. Here’s a video about it: Again, this is an example of the Illuminati displaying their machinations in plain sight for us to see if we choose to. It seems that the Rockefeller Foundation has a contingency plan for a scenario in which 13,000 people die. Will the drill become truth, as with 9/11 and 7/7? The security for the upcoming Olympics will be the biggest police and domestic military operation that Britain has ever seen with more troops on the London streets than are in Afghanistan. There’s also going to be an aircraft carrier moored in the Thames, although I suspect that’s for show. What use would an aircraft carrier be against terrorists? It was rather like the tanks that used to be parked at Heathrow Airport; one doesn’t need to be “Stormin’ Norman” to understand that tanks are completely useless against terrorism. Ian thinks that we might be able to prevent false flag terrorist events by predicting them, as he may have done in 2006 in Chicago, see: The question is: If we have predicted what’s planned to happen at the Olympics correctly, will that be enough to stop it now? For reasons Ian has revealed, the Illuminati are desperate to get the New World Order sewn up by the end of the year. They are years… nay decades, behind schedule. They’re getting desperate and Ian thinks they may be pushed into taking a chance this time.

 During our lunch break Ian asked us to get into groups and talk about the various examples of synchronicity that have happened in our lives. Ustane and I discuss these matters all the time and I’ve already explained how I experienced a remarkable one when I saw St Chad’s Cathedral. It turned out that everybody who I spoke to at Shift 2 had similar stories to tell. I find it strange how my last day-shift in Portering before I was suspended was filled with amazing events that make it impossible for me to dismiss it as coincidence. The problem is that it’s impossible to prove synchronicity, as I’ve explored in these HPANWO TV films. See: (Part 10) and: Nothing is so unlikely that you can say: "This can never happen", which is why Skeptics are so besotted with the concept of coincidence; on their level, it’s a get-out-of-jail-free card that cannot fail. What I experienced could be coincidence, but it’s not. To understand why it's not though, we have to explore the nature of human consciousness as it emerges in the two hemispheres of the brain.
After lunch we reconvened for the last session of the event and in this part Ian delved deeper into the esoteric and spiritual aspects of his research. This is where the theme of synchronicity, premonition and manifestation, that had been underlying the whole day’s proceedings, was brought into the light. Ian gave us his own version of the synchronicity stories that we’d been sharing all day: One night many years ago he’d had a dream that the Lottery draw the next day would be the numbers of his date of birth, his wife’s date of birth, and their respective ages. When he woke up and told her, his wife instructed him to go and buy a ticket. Unfortunately Ian didn't take dreams seriously in those days and let the ticket slip his mind. The next day when the numbers were published in the papers he and his wife both blanched when they realized that those numbers did indeed come up! “Anyway, we were divorced eighteen months later.” said Ian. His wife is convinced to this day that Ian did buy a Lottery ticket and secreted the prize in an offshore account somewhere. Ian believes that the clue to unlocking the psychic and manifestational abilities of human consciousness lies in the workings of our brain. Our mammalian brain is divided into two halves, the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere. In an average right-handed male human their entire physical worldview, language, logic, our sense of the passing of time and individual waking conscious mind is operated by the left hemisphere, called the left-brain. In left-handed people this arrangement is slightly more complex, it is with women’s brains too, but is still very much centred on the left-brain. The right-brain is our source of intuition, emotion, timeless notion of existence, and where our subconscious and “super-conscious” mind dwells. Ian thinks that this is where we have our link to the soul and what Carl Jung called the collective unconscious. Of course the Conformist Illuminati-occupied world is left-brain dominated; this is why the only temples we build are shopping centres, as Andy Thomas said, see above. The psychologist Michael Gazzaniga puts it even more bluntly when he says: “The left-brain, don’t leave home without it.” Gazzaniga was involved in experiments where he severed the corpus callosum, the neural connection between the two halves of the brain, as an attempt to cure people’s epilepsy, see: Coincidentally… that word again… I have an early childhood memory of watching a much older TV documentary about this subject. While it’s certainly true that the left-brain is essential to our ability to function in this universe as effective organisms, what the Illuminati have done is make us what David Icke calls “left-brain prisoners”. In other words we become purely functional and soulless, biological machines; and that matches my own research and interpretation of our society completely. Fear is essentially a left-brain function because it requires an ability to envision the future and this is the dominion of the left-brain. Ian says it all boils down to sex, the fear of not getting laid! This is why there is so much envy and rivalry in attracting sexual partners; for women it’s based primarily around conventional good looks, for men it’s mostly connected to wealth and social status. Illuminati-occupied society is a fear production-line! TV programmes instil it in us from the moment we reach for the on-switch. Soap operas like EastEnders are particularly bad in this department, see:
If the right-brain is the key to psychic and soul-awareness then these things are obviously a massive threat to Illuminati rule because the Loomies have worked so very desperately to shut it down. In fact the shutting down of the right-brain is their ultimate and central objective and all the other things, like 9/11, the UFO cover-up, the financial system etc, are merely auxiliary to the prime purpose and goal: keeping us left-brain prisoners. Their work begins at the moment of birth with newborn babies being given up to fifteen vaccines almost as soon as they first enter the world; of course a certain number don’t survive that experience, but the Loomies don’t care. The use of vaccines to control the masses was predicted by a very wise and clever man, Rudolf Steiner, long before vaccination was in common usage. The agenda carries on in school with left-brain indoctrination and feeding children bad food like MacDonalds and Monsanto’s GM range. Also “antidepressant” drugs like Ritalin; if this lasts until adulthood it becomes SSRI drugs like Prozac. I’ve already mentioned TV. Fluoride in the water plays a major role because, among other effects, fluoride calcifies the pineal gland. As people like Graham Hancock (See Links column) and Dr Rick Strassman have discovered, the pineal gland is essential to soul-connection, as Rene Descartes guessed… or maybe didn’t just guess… it was centuries ago. Mobile phones are a nasty way of changing the nature of the brain to one more compliant to Illuminati rule; as with vaccines it kills many of the unfortunates who are subjected to it, and the perpetrators are no more concerned. Chemtrails are also a part of this operation, but how this works I will come to later. It’s sad to note that Birmingham is the most heavily fluoridated city in Britain and maybe this is one of the reasons why I feel so uncomfortable there. As Ustane and I walked back to the railway station after the event we both noticed the way that everybody we passed in the street was walking very quickly; we kept having to step aside to let speed-marching pedestrians go ahead of us. The need to rush from one place to another, like fear, requires a sense of the passing of time and so is therefore a left-brain feature. Do the people of Birmingham have especially atrophied right-brains because of the extra fluoride they consume? The ultimate expression of the left-brain prisoner is what has become known as the Skeptic… with a K. Regular HPANWO-readers hardly need reminding about my interest in this subject, but just in case, see: Skeptics have even categorized their attempt to explain away right-brain activity with a very sibilant acronym that will surely become a classic: the “RSME”, Religious, Spiritual and Mystical Experience.
 That’s the bad news. The good news is that we’re not helpless. We can fight back against these methods of shackling our right-brain with our own ways of liberating it. One of those is to avoid fluoride in water and toothpaste; hopefully we can do this while our pineal gland is still working and so prevent complete calcification. Minimize your use of mobile phones; Ian holds them up the left side of his head as a placebo! Don’t watch TV, or at least take everything you see on it with a pinch of salt. Refuse vaccinations for your child, and don’t let them be medicated with Ritalin or Junior Prozac. Another means that is not advisable except in a controlled environment is sleep deprivation. I remember seeing a news story just a few days before coming to Shift 2 about a Cornishman who’d just broken the record for the longest time without sleep: 11 days. He was interviewed at the end of it, looking pretty haggard, but still able to coherently answer the reporter’s questions. Ian told us about a friend of his in Cornwall called Tony Wright, who’d written a book called Left in the Dark about how he’d achieved right-brain awareness through staying awake for a few nights and not sleeping. I wondered if they were both the same person, and it turns out that they are; see: Sleep is something we specifically need for the left-brain, the right-brain never sleeps, which is why dreams come from the right-brain while the left-brain is kipping. Forcing the left-brain to shut down by starving it of sleep, while you’re still awake, is a good way of experiencing the right-brain’s consciousness. It is in this state of consciousness that we can fully harness the right-brain’s power, which is why then we are hit by things like synchronicity and premonitions and the ability to manifest the physical world around us. This happened to me once during a very busy period of work at my hospital. I did 5 double shifts in as many days and had a major incident during one of them. I remember going to the toilet at three AM and hearing voices calling my name in the cubicle, and when I turned on the tap on the washbasin I saw faces in the water smiling at me.
 Another method… which I really recommend you do not try at home… is to have a stroke in your left hemisphere. This is what happened to a neurologist called Jill Bolte Taylor, and although she was seriously ill, her life was in danger and she needed intensive hospital treatment as a result, the experience of the injury was an amazingly positive life-changing one, see: The simplest and safest way to activate your right-brain and to disarm the attacks against it from Illuminati-controlled society is just to be aware of its presence and to trust it. This was the most important thing Ian taught us at Shift 2. I think that the right-brain gives us hints, a little dig in the ribs every now and again that is just its way of saying: “Don’t forget, I’m here.” The synchronicity and premonitions we discussed are a part of that. A time is coming when we may not need to use the arduous above activities because of changes going on in the universe around us, which is in turn affecting the sun and the Earth. This all ties in with the 2012 phenomenon that Ian also explored. A couple of years ago Ian took a trip to Peru to meet with a tribe of Indians called the Quero. These were a tribe that everybody had assumed were wiped out by the Conquistadors in the 16th Century, but in fact they just went underground, living mostly in secret settlements high in the Andes mountains and keeping away from the general population. For some reason they decided to go public in the early 1960’s and reemerged from their hiding place to the astonishment and delight of their fellow Peruvians. While he was in Peru Ian fell down the stairs and broke his leg; I remember seeing him still limping at the 2010 Glastonbury Symposium, see: But this worked out for the best because he couldn’t go climbing with the rest of his group and so was free to wait at the bottom of the mountain and talk to the Quero Indians who found him there, in the true way that these incidents manifest themselves synchronistically. The Quero believe that in 2012 to 2013 the sun will go into a massive overdrive of activity that will cause it to bathe the Earth is solar flares. This will do terrible damage to electrical and electronic equipment that could take years to recover from; but, on the positive side, it could free us from the control of our right-brain by the Illuminati, so making their New World Order impossible. The legend the Quero speak of is shared by many indigenous tribes throughout the world. The Maori of New Zealand call it the “unveiling”, this is the literal translation of the Greek word apocalypse; not “end of the world”, but “unveiling”. It all fits into place! We can see now why the Illuminati agents in the Conquistadors were so desperate to commit their evil genocide on the American Indians, just like the Holy Inquisition did to witches in Europe during the thousand years previously. And that brings us onto the next interesting fact: The Vatican has just set up the first ever office of the Holy Inquisition anywhere in the world outside Rome… in the city of Lima in Peru, right on the doorstep of the Quero. Could the Chemtrails be an attempt to stop the positive effects of the solar flares reaching the Earth’s surface and so preserve Illuminati left-brain rule? I’m not sure; there are a lot of unanswered questions over Chemtrails and their true purpose, see: However Ian feels confident, as do I, that these attempts are futile and will fail. I’m glad I went to a Shift 2 event and I’d recommend them to everybody. Ian’s done a good job striving so hard not just to present them, but to do all the donkey-work as well. We left in high spirits. Both Ustane and I were inspired and filled with hope. Ian exudes a sense of optimism that cannot be found in any other researcher, even his runner-up David Icke. It was tiring to sit there for six hours taking in all that information and processing it in my brain… both hemispheres of it… , and my bottom was very sore afterwards, but I do resonate with what he was saying. I’ve noticed this in my own life since I was discharged from the Hospital Portering Service. Things have been working out for me very well, see: Along with my housecleaning business I’ve been offered a job as a columnist in a new UFO/conspiracy magazine, of which I’ll post details as soon as they’re available. I’m also going to edit the magazine. Ironically if I were still in Portering I probably wouldn’t have the time. So now we know that clouds do indeed have silvery linings, and why they do.

 A good symptom of a spiritual awakening is when materialistic scientists like Michael Gazzaniga have fellow scholars who contradict his views; one of them in Iain McGilchrist, and it’s good to end an article with one of his speeches:

Pre-Roswell Roswells

One of the common topics I’ve explored on HPANWO is UFO’s and the various falsehoods associated with them; for instance: that they’re only seen by “loonies”, that they didn’t exist until impressionable and imaginative people, usually wearing anoraks, first saw them in cinemas in the 1940’s etc. As we can see, UFO photos and reports both date back to far earlier epochs, see: Another myth is that UFO’s are unknown in the Third World and are only seen in developed Western nations where people have been exposed to them culturally; but the Zulu Shaman Credo Mutwa reports that this is definitely not the case, in fact he has been abducted and abused by the very same beings that were seen in a famous Brazilian case, see: In this article I shall explore the theory that the famous Roswell Incident of 1947 was the trigger that led to all subsequent incidents that resembled it, and that no such incidents occurred before it. The word “Roswell” of course refers to the city of Roswell in New Mexico, USA which was the centre stage for that most explosive of all UFO tales; however since then other similar incidents have occurred and the word has almost become a common noun with the qualifying adjective designating the place, EG: Brazilian Roswell, Welsh Roswell etc. It means: a very significant UFO event, especially one in which a large amount of decisive physical evidence is left behind, like a crashed craft and alien bodies, and that this evidence is secretly salvaged by the government and covered up. It’s only a matter of time before the Oxford English Dictionary adds the word to its list under that definition.

Contrary to what you might have heard, there are "Roswells" that predate the Roswell Incident. I’ll take you through all the ones I’ve heard about and if you’ve heard of others that I haven’t then get in touch and let me know. We’ll go backwards in time from the most recent to the earliest, but all of them crucially took place before July 1947:

Cape Girardeau- April 1941
The details of what will inevitably be christened “the Missouri Roswell” can be found in this MUFON (See HPANWO Links column) paper. The title is misleading however; this is not “the first Roswell”, but I’m getting ahead of myself! This is a fascinating document that presents the compelling evidence for the case very comprehensively. Somebody has not only done a good research and analysis job here, they’ve also managed to communicate it well: The story was first revealed in 1984 in a book by UFO researcher Leo Stringfield. He received a letter from a lady named Charlette (sic) Mann concerning a UFO crash-retrieval in 1941, a full six years before Roswell. The crash occurred just a few miles from Cape Girardeau, a busy and picturesque city nestling on the banks of the River Mississippi. Charlette’s story was then corroborated by other sources: her own sister gave a sworn affidavit that Charlette’s story was true. The Sheriff of Cape Girardeau County, at the time, backed her up, as do seven leaked Presidential documents from three sources and possibly even a handwritten memo from J Edgar Hoover. In April of 1941 Charlette’s grandfather Reverend William Huffman was the local minister at the Red Star Baptist Church in Cape Girardeau. One evening at about 9 to 9.30 PM he received a phonecall from the police asking him to come to the site of a light aircraft crash 10 to 15 miles outside town because the injured occupants were not expected to survive and they wanted somebody to administer Last Rights. Rev. Huffman did not consider this request unusual and left immediately; remember that America is a far more religious country than most European nations, like my own, the UK. He arrived at the scene and saw that it was not a plane that had crashed but a disk-shaped object. The disk was broken open and inside he saw strange control seats and artefacts, and also markings that he thought looked like Egyptian hieroglyphics, a recurring comparison that covers several other UFO reports. Lying on the ground outside the craft were the bodies of three small humanoids which resembled the classic Grey; one of them had been moved to one side and the minister thought that it might be alive. As it was he was only required to give two of the beings the Sacrament of the Dying. There were many policemen at the scene, as well as firemen and news photographers. Military personnel turned up and swore everybody to secrecy before taking over the entire operation and sending Huffman home. Huffman was a patriotic and God-fearing man who took oaths seriously, but he couldn’t resist telling his family members what he'd experienced, including his son, Guy, who became Charlette’s father. Charlette knew about the incident because her father and other family members mentioned it occasionally as a family curiosity, but it was from the 1984 deathbed confession of her grandmother Floy, William Huffman’s wife, that she learned the complete tale; that which she related to Leo Stringfield. She found out what became of the photo of one of the aliens that her father had shown her one night at a party. The photo had been taken by one of the photographers at the scene and given to Huffman by a friend of his at his church a few weeks later. Huffman gave it to another friend in the early 1950’s: Walter Wayne Fisk. Fisk was a career photographer who’d made a living taking snaps of Cape Girardeau’s famous rose gardens and probably Huffman thought he’d appreciate this piece of evidence more than the average man-on-the-street. As far as we know Fisk still has that photograph today. Recently, the researcher Stanton Friedman managed to track down the elderly Walter Fisk to his current home in New Mexico. They spoke on the telephone and Fisk told Stanton all kinds of strange tales, like how he was a psychologist and worked for the President, but he refused to confirm or deny whether he still had the photograph. Since then he has declined all attempts to speak on the subject and so the whereabouts of the photograph remain a mystery. Charlette described the photo to Stringfield: It showed two men holding up one of the aliens by its arms. She sketched a reproduction of it, see above at the top of this HPANWO article, and since then two photographs have emerged online that are said to be the original, see below:

I personally doubt that either of these photos are the real McCoy. The first one looks a bit too neat; it looks like it was shot in a studio enviroment with proper lighting effects, and the quality leads me to think that it was taken using modern equipment. The alien also looks a bit too much like something you could buy in a Roswell tourist shop! The second photo is very obviously taken in daylight, even though the crash was late at night, and it shows a creature far smaller than the ones Charlette reported seeing; it’s barely two feet tall. The most intriguing evidence lies in the independent articles, like the Hoover memo. This incident took place just a few months before the attack on Pearl Harbour and the US Government knew it was going to have to fight a war very soon and although there were serious leaks, like the photograph, it’s obvious that there must have been some kind of protocol already in place to deal with an incident like this UFO crash. It may not have been as perfect as it was at Roswell but there’s no way the Government would have been able to suppress news of this hitting the airwaves unless they had a contingency plan; and if they had a contingency plan then they must have had previous knowledge or experience of UFO crash-retrievals. Experience? Where did that come from? A few weeks later, on the 21st of May, a huge tornado ripped through the heart of Cape Girardeau killing 23 people and injuring many more; 233 homes were destroyed. It’s possible that any notoriety generated by the UFO and aliens was drowned out by this much more terrestrial disaster. The burying of news and long time periods between events and witnesses to them coming forward has plagued UFO cases left, right and centre throughout the history of UFOlogy; none more so than the next Roswell on our list:

Gateshead- 1940
The strange case of the “Gateshead Grey” took place the year before Cape Girardeau, but it went completely unreported at all until 2008. The researcher who broke the story was a friend of mine, Richard D Hall (I’ve been interviewed on Richard’s TV show and will be again shortly, see: When he did a lecture on UFO’s in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, he was contacted by an elderly gentleman who told Richard that he’d seen one himself. Robert Hall (no relation) had lived in the Bensham area of Gateshead in 1940 where he’d been a small child, aged just 5, and he’d had a close encounter which led to a full-blown Roswell. Gateshead is a very large and populous town that occupies the land south of Newcastle on the banks of the River Tyne; if an alien landing can be covered up there, it can be covered up anywhere! (In fact in my fictional novel The Obscurati Chronicles, I include a situation in which a UFO crashes in a big town near London, see: It became famous in 1998 for the erection of the 66 foot high sculpture the Angel of the North, although in my view it looks more like an aeroplane stood on its tail than an angel. Are the Grey and the Angel being in the same place a coincidence or is something more occult and esoteric going on?... That’s a story for another article. In 1940 a strange atmosphere hung over the country; war against Germany had been officially declared the previous September, but the worst hostilities had yet to break out and negotiations were going on to try and find a peaceful conclusion to the conflict. However Britain was still preparing for the onslaught to come, building up the Armed Forces and organizing parades on city streets to reassure and inspire the British public. It was while watching one of these marches one fine day, on a hitherto undisclosed date that year, that 5 year old Robert and one of his friends were sitting on a wall on a main throughfare called Saltwell Road watching the troops file past. (It helps if you use Google Maps or Earth to follow this narrative) Eventually they got bored and felt cold (this could indicate that the date was not in the summer months) and ran down Stephenson Street, the side terrace near where they lived. When they were halfway down the road they saw a translucent barrier across the street that Robert described as resembling heat-haze. The two boys found that the barrier didn’t reach right down to the ground and they could pass under it by ducking. Then, at the bottom of Stephenson Street they were confronted by a large ovoid object hovering just above the ground about 12 to 14 feet in diameter. Running parallel to Saltwell Road at the other end of the residential terraces is an alley known as “the Back Alley” where local children used to play, and lined up all along this alley were a large number of beings of many species. In fact it was a veritable ET menagerie with more variety than any other reported encounter I’ve heard of; Robert’s descriptions of these entities answer those of other alien contactees’, and this was confirmed by Derrel Sims, see: There was a humanoid creature that was covered in fur, “Bigfoot” Robert called it; classic Greys in several sizes, “Praying Mantis” insectoids, dwarf-like gnomes and blond, blue-eyed “Nordics”, very humanlike beings which you wouldn’t look twice at if you saw them in normal human situations. Robert and his friend were taken aboard the craft and underwent the medical examination that is a common feature of UFO abductions, blood specimens were taken and they were pacified by a paralyzing weapon that one of the aliens held in its hand. Robert was terrified and tried to flee; he saw other children climbing the fence by the railway line bordering the alley. Robert eventually managed to escape the aliens’ clutches and ran back to the main road where he alerted the marching soldiers. One of the soldiers went to have a look and shot at the aliens with his pistol. Panic ensued and people on the main road fled. The craft rose into the sky and disappeared.
If the events of that day weren’t incredible enough, more was to come three days later. Robert was on his way to the shops one morning and he took a short cut through a pedestrian alley further up the road than the Back Alley; suddenly he realized that he was not alone. He looked round and saw a Grey running towards him. He pelted as quickly as he could to the nearest street where his Uncle Ernie ran a coal yard. Robert tripped on the kerb and thought that the Grey had got him, but luckily Uncle Ernie was on the pavement outside and he attacked the Grey with a coal shovel and killed it. Uncle Ernie Wren was still alive in 2008 and Richard met him, but unfortunately Ernie is somewhat senile and unable to give a solid witness account. Ernie then moved the body behind the gates of his coal yard while Robert went and found a policeman. The body was then moved by a police or army vehicle to the crypt of St Cuthbert’s Church about half a mile away on Bensham Road where it was apparently stored for three months. There is no mention in the church’s management records of this going on, but then it’s not the kind of thing the Vicar would be too open about, especially if he’d been warned to keep quiet. Robert reports seeing men in white overalls going up and down the narrow outdoor stairway leading to the crypt and visits from “professors”. On at least one occasion during this time the local area was subjected to house-to-house searches, Northern Ireland Troubles-style; the soldiers were apparently searching for more of the aliens.
Robert suffered from a lot of the classic symptoms of “post-abduction syndrome” including a triangular scar on his face that lasted for 8 years. He was visited by military officers, scientists apparently investigating the matter and a very eager news reporter whom Robert says physically assaulted him to try and make him part with information. He was also followed to school many times by a frightening stranger. These sound to me very much like Men-in-Black encounters, at least some of them, and the callers may not have been whom they said they were or looked like; in fact they may have been aliens themselves, but that’s a long story.
All the researchers who have interviewed Robert Hall say that he comes across as honest; he’s a simple and ingenuous man who doesn’t fit the profile of a fantasist or liar. The UFOlogist Gary Heseltine has also interviewed Robert; Gary is a police detective and so has developed a good intuitive ear for when he’s being spun a yarn, and he passes Robert’s testimony as truthful. As I said above a very long time has passed between the incident occurring and research into it beginning, meaning that the majority of witnesses are probably no longer living, the memories of the living witnesses will have become faded and distorted, and direct evidence is harder to come by. Richard and the others have done a good job retrieving even what little they have. There’s no mention of the event in any newspaper archives or local records. Despite the fact that there are a few old people living in the area who also lived there in 1940 no others have professed any recollection of the UFO incident and the only one positively known to have been in the vicinity at the time is refusing to comment. However Robert’s sister Rhoda does recall the hostile visitors who questioned her brother. This would be less frustrating if Robert Hall were not such a credible witness. One thing he mentioned that is especially interesting is that he expressed his confusion that the craft he saw was so small while the aliens which presumably came from inside it were so numerous; I imagine that if he underwent an examination inside the UFO then it would have had to have been larger on the inside than its 12 to 14 foot exterior. The notion of alien craft being Doctor Who's TARDIS-like: larger on the inside than the outside, is not one Robert Hall is likely to have made up; however it is a recurring feature of many other abduction reports. A good example is Jan Siedlecki’s 1976 encounter in Leeds in which he describes a disk-shaped craft only about 20 feet across, yet it had three deck-levels inside (Good-1998). A bullshit-merchant would probably not put these details into his charade and make the craft’s inner and outer dimensions proportional, in line with terrestrial logic.
The week before this HPANWO article was published I travelled to Newcastle to record my interviews on Richplanet TV, and Richard showed me the location of the Gateshead Grey sighting. I took a few photos (Apologies for the darkness and poor quality, they were done on my mobile phone). It was immediately apparent that the architecture of the nearby houses and public buildings was 19th Century and so the area must look pretty much the same in 1940 as it does today. I took a photo of the famous kerbstone where little Robert tripped over as the Grey bore down on him before Uncle Ernie dispatched it to defend his nephew, but unfortunately the shot didn’t come out. It was too dark and my mobile phone camera had no flash. However it’s likely that this is the original kerbstone because it looked quite old, and although pavements need to be regularly resurfaced the kerbstones last much longer. I’ve very rarely seen them changed where I’ve lived.

This is 29 Hedley Street where Robert spent his childhood and lived as a five year old boy in 1940.

This is the spot at the bottom of Stephenson Street where the UFO appeared.

This is the gate to Uncle Ernie’s coal yard through which the dead Grey was dragged so it could be concealed. This gate looks very old and might also be original.

These are the narrow steps leading down to the crypt. St Cuthbert’s Church has been deconsecrated and abandoned since 1940 and today it is being converted into a museum (Not a UFO one!). By the time Richard and I arrived here it was night-time and completely dark and so I declined to descend the very narrow and steep stone stairway into the crypt; if it had been daytime I would have tried it. As you can see if you watch Richard’s documentary, see below, the crypt is just an empty derelict chamber filled with rubbish measuring 12 feet by 8, and according to Robert Hall, for three months 72 years ago it was used by the military to store an extraterrestrial corpse. This part of the tale is very revealing I think. Why did they leave it there for that long? Couldn’t they have moved it to somewhere more secure and convenient? This indicates to me that, unlike with Cape Girardeau, Roswell and all subsequent crash-retrievals, the British Government in 1940 had no contingency plan on how to deal with this kind of thing; it was as unexpected to them as it was to Robert and his friend. I wonder if the secret reports on the Gateshead Grey may have been shared with the Americans, even though they were neutrals in the war at that time. This may have triggered the US Military to work on a plan of what to do if something similar happened on their soil. Was this why they were all set up and ready a year later when that saucer came down near Cape Girardeau?
The story is told in Richard’s own words in this full-length documentary: and here is the follow-up: . The Gateshead Grey is a tantalizing mix of thin evidence, but believable testimony. The case becomes even more interesting when we find out that, even if it’s unknown in the modern human world, it may have influenced our folklore subconsciously: watch it and you’ll find out where the catchphrase “Little Green Men” might have come from!

Aurora- April 1897
As we go back in time before the 1940’s the stories of UFO-related encounters become dimmer and mistier. Although, as I demonstrate in the link above to pre-1940’s UFO photographs, it’s obvious that the phenomenon existed, it had little or no presence in popular culture. As we approach the century-ago marker we find a bleak landscape as far as Roswells are concerned. There are a few very tenuous recitations about crashed objects being seized during World War I, but nothing tangible. Then as we enter the close of the 19th Century we’re suddenly hit in the face by an almost unbelievable story from Texas: The Aurora Incident.
During the 1890’s news stories began to flood the entire world about the presence of “mystery balloons” and “dirigibles”. When studying the Aurora incident it’s important to understand the terminology used at the time; this was an era when the only aircraft were gas balloons and primitive airships; the Wright brothers’ first aeroplane didn’t lift off until December 1903, and conventional engineering wisdom beforehand mostly proclaimed that the aeroplane was impossible. Words like: “UFO” and even the slightly older: “Flying saucer” had yet to be coined. What these reports were describing was undoubtedly what we today would call a global UFO flap. This came to a head when on the 19th of April 1897 the Dallas Morning News announced that one of the mystery airships had struck a windmill in the city of Aurora, Texas. Despite it being officially classified as a “city”, Aurora only has a population of 376 and is just a small, sparse and isolated suburb of Dallas. The windmill was actually a wind-driven water pump fitted to a well in the garden of a Judge JS Proctor. The craft impacted at about 6 in the morning and exploded, scattering loose debris over a wide area, destroying the judge’s flower garden. Many of Aurora’s residents were alerted by the noise and rushed to the judge’s house to see if they could help. There was a badly burned and battered body in the debris that was thought to by the airship’s pilot. A local man who was an army signalman and keen astronomer stated to the reporter that in his opinion this was “a man from Mars”. Again, we need to be aware of the contemporary language difference here. At the time some of the most popular pieces of literature were books like HG Wells’ War of the Worlds which was about an invasion by intelligent but hostile creatures from Mars; it came out the following year, but others like it were around in 1897. Because of their influence, and lack of real knowledge about the true nature of Mars, anything extraterrestrial would have called “Martian” or “from Mars”. This was what we would call “an alien”. The creature was given a full Christian funeral and buried in the local cemetery. Again this would not be unusual practice in the United States at that time; remember William Huffman’s story above? The grave was marked by a very rough stone without an epitaph, see photo above, but it did feature what looks like a crude engraving of a cigar or disk-shaped UFO. There followed a clean-up operation in which the largest fragments of the object were carted off (Where!?) while the smaller ones were thrown down Judge Proctor’s well.
Again the hoodoo of a massive delay before the investigation returns to haunt us. The first serious research was not begun until the early 1970’s! The researchers' first move was to turn to the tastiest potential source of evidence: the grave. Unfortunately one cannot just walk into a cemetery with a spade and start digging up graves. Like most countries, the United States has Rights of Sepulchre laws that protect a person’s final resting place under strict guidelines that have few exemptions, and violating them is a serious criminal offence... even if the beneficiary of those legal rights is an extraterrestrial being! The investigators from MUFON wrote to the relevant authorities asking for permission to exhume the body and were given a firm and decisive negative reply; much to their frustration. The local council even posted a police guard at the graveside while the investigators were in town in case they attempted any grave-robbing. I can only imagine what it must feel like for a UFO investigator to stroll through a cemetery and walk above a grave that has an alien body just a few feet underground. But worse was to come because it seemed that somebody wasn’t going to take the chance that the burial authorities might change their minds. Soon after the first investigation the tombstone was stolen and it also looked as if somebody else had tampered with the grave, maybe even secretly exhuming the body themselves before the investigators could. Today the Aurora Cemetery Authority claims not to even know the grave’s exact location. Researchers have often noted that the people of Aurora are generally very uncooperative with UFOlogists and have no desire to explore this unusual piece of their hometown’s history... Has somebody warned them off? It’s ironic to think that as the Government were secreting away the bodies from the Roswell crash in 1947 another alien was lying in a grave just a few hundred miles away in Texas, and had been for 50 years. At the time of the first investigation there were fortunately a few very elderly witnesses to the crash still alive and they were tracked down and interviewed by an excellent individual, I think: Jim Marrs, see HPANWO Links column. Unfortunately he faced the same problems as Richard D Hall did over the Gateshead Grey; it’s not just governments that bury UFO secrets, the passing of time does too. However several people remembered seeing the object in the sky and after it had hit the ground.
There are several hoax theories going round, including one promoted by a former mayor of Aurora. The reporter who wrote the news story, SE Haydon, had a reputation as being a practical joker. There was apparently a motive for trying to put Aurora on the map. The town was in dire straits socially and economically because it had recently been hit by a spotted fever epidemic that had killed many people there; indeed the town went through several periods of quarantine (I myself was once stuck inside a quarantine zone in my hospital and it’s pretty frightening I can tell you!) The town’s main industry, cotton farming, had also just been decimated by an infestation of pests, boll weevils. Most people there were unemployed, poor, sick and hungry. The recent cancellation of a railway line through the town must have been a severe blow; and, in the same way some other places have tried to fake apparitions of the Virgin Mary, somebody decided to take action by fabricating a fake UFO crash... or so the theory goes. One wonders who, how and why they came up with this idea when there are plenty of other more promising ways to boost a town’s profile. Personally I’d stage some fake serial-killer deaths! Also the theories come from people who had no first-hand knowledge of the incident at all, and all Jim Marrs’ other contacts say the UFO was real, so unless we were faced with a conspiracy by a group of slow-witted octogenarians, we’ll have to knock the hoax theory on the head for now.
There’s more, apart from the grave there’s another massive potential source of data: the well into which the people dumped the debris. But annoyingly, just as with the grave, the well has been sealed over with a concrete slab and the current owner of the land refuses permission for UFOlogists to gain access to it. I’m beginning to wonder if Lyall Watson’s “Cosmic Nanny” isn't at work here, see: There is an interesting story attached to the well though, if not a sad one because it concerns a man’s illness and disability. In 1945 a man called Brawley Oates bought Judge Proctor’s old house and went to live there. Like the judge before him, he got all his drinking water from the well and before long the unfortunate man was struck down by debilitating rheumatoid arthritis in his hands, rather like David Icke has been. Was Oates’ condition caused by drinking water from the well that had been infected with some kind of toxin from the alien debris? Whatever, the well remains sealed and a sturdy brick outhouse has been constructed over it to protect it further. Here’s an interesting documentary about the Aurora case:

What has become apparent to me is that when it comes to Roswells we have two research obstacles: Since at least 1941 there has been a secret policy in place to cover up and deny these incidents. It’s a global policy, because whether the crash occurs in the USA, Brazil, China, Russia or any other country in the world, the same thing always happens: The government sends the army in, keeps everybody away, enforces media silence and then comes up with stupid cover stories about weather balloons or escaped chimpanzees. The other obstacle is time: the human lifespan, and our memory. There may or may not have been a decision by governments on dealing secretly with UFO’s before 1941; I suspect not, but this era is now so long ago that only the very elderly remember it, and their memories are blighted by inevitable lacunae and inaccuracies. The best hope for us all is to deal with the cause of the current and recent Roswells, what Stephen Bassett calls the “Truth Embargo”.

Just to end this article, let's look at the remarkable tale of a Mr James Lumley, a man hiking in the Rocky Mountains one day when he saw a lighted object cross the heavens and burst into pieces like “a sky-rocket”. This was followed by a rushing sound like high wind. The following day, Mr Lumley discovered: “that, as far as he could see in either direction a path had been cut through the forest, several rods-wide, giant trees uprooted or broken off near the ground, the tops of hills shaved off and the earth ploughed up in many places. Great and widespread havoc was everywhere visible. Following up this track of desolation, he soon ascertained the cause of it in the shape of an immense stone driven into the side of a mountain. An examination of this stone, or so much of it as was visible, showed that it was divided into compartments that in various places it was carved with curious hieroglyphics. More than this, Mr. Lumley also discovered fragments of a substance resembling glass, and here and there dark stains, as though caused by a liquid. He is confident that the hieroglyphics are the work of human hands, and that the stone itself, although but a fragment of an immense body, must have been used for some purpose by animated beings.” This report is dated to the 19th of October 1865, see: Could this be the first ever Roswell?
