MECHANISMS OF CONTACT
Joseph Burkes MD 2016
I must admit I am rather confused by the whole situation. Experiencers describe what has been counted as over fifty different phenotypes of so-called ETs. The term “phenotype” refers to category by appearance. How is such a thing possible? Where do they all come from?
Is the entire galaxy sending representative to visit us, mostly at night, in our dreams, in our fantasies? Are there dimensional portals allowing such beings to enter into our reality from other planes of existence? Why is there such a terrible paucity of physical evidence?
We are left with narratives and the rather simple minded formula that for many goes. "If you remember it then it physically occurred." Back in 1990s during a series of contact experiences I believe that I was actually shown by an intelligence associated with flying saucers how they create illusion. It was a kind of “show and tell” lesson that we might use for children in which I was the child. Thus I came up with the Virtual Experience Hypothesis. According to this schema the “ETs” can create hologram like displays that we interpret as "craft,” a Virtual Experience of the First Kind (VE-1)
2. According to an account in Dr Karla Turner's "Masquerade of Angels” they can create a virtual reality experience that is technologically mediated, a VE-2.
3. And according to Dr Andrija Pucharich's experience with Uri Geller in the 1970s the alleged aliens can create in us virtual memories, i.e. impregnated ones that don't correspond to any physical event, a Virtual Experience of the Third Kind VE-3.
One might ask, “So what if all the different types of so-called aliens are just illusions? For all we know this intelligence might be some form of intelligent energy that masquerades in a multitude of physical forms.
The use of technologically mediated illusion can explain the confusing picture of close encounters with strikingly different phenotypes. Dozens of beings with radically different appearances might not exist at all, but rather we encounter them in a series of theater of the mind productions. With an ability to create virtual reality, or the technology to implant false memories that many call “abductions,” UFO intelligence could make it appear as if the whole galaxy is visiting Earth.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS CONCERNING MARKS FOUND ON THE BODIES OF EXPERIENCERS.
Physical interactions leave physical signs. We have cases in which the memories of medical type procedures are associated with small scoop marks. Sometimes the marks don't correspond to any memories of "alien" biopsies but are still pointed to as "proof." The human subject merely awakens with frightful recollections and notices the scars. For a person experiencing recurrent anomalous contacts with strange beings, just having marks might totally convince the experiencer in the absolutely physical nature of the encounters.
What if such evidence of small scars is a kind of prop, as in a stage production or in a movie? In the theater an actor can discharge a pistol. The entire audience is startled by the blast. This allows them to suspend disbelief and be swept away by the story. The gun is firing blanks of course and the "targeted" actor falls down as part of the act. It is conceivable that the scoop marks on experiencers’ bodies are made by small probes that enter into our reality to create the "evidence" that many seize upon as physical proof that actual on-board experiences have occurred.
I think I understand how troubling these ideas might be to experiencers that have been unfairly treated by the larger society that labels them as “kooks.” An absolute belief in the physical reality of close encounters may be helpful psychological defense mechanism against the arrows of scorn that many must endure. Nevertheless unless we as UFO truth seekers, contact experiencers and their supporters understand the true mechanisms of contact and the role of illusion then we will not be able to find the code required to successfully decipher the UFO mystery. THE MANY PHENOTYPES REPORTED BY EXPERIENCERS MIGHT BE ILLUSORY
