Quick Shoutout to The Paracast Listeners

Back The The Future

Congratulations, listeners of The Paracast! You did it! You dragged Gene Steinberg and that other guy into acknowledging the cases Jeff Ritzmann and I closed on hypnosis and David Jacobs back in 2010!

Gene ends his missive on alien abduction research in the Paracast yesterday’s-news-letter dated October 25, 2015 (which is tomorrow, ironically) on this hopeful note:

“Maybe it’s time to tear down the walls and view the evidence from a fresh perspective.”

Well, you’re all in luck, because while Gene was busily fighting against the change he now tepidly, perhaps begrudgingly, calls for, Jeff and I were hard at work with Paratopia and Project Core, creating the very conversation you’re having now and then moving beyond it. So, if you’d like to see what the future holds for The Paracast’s epic inquiries, why wait? Dive into Paratopia’s past! We’ve got so many episodes of post-Jacobs, post-hypnosis, post-abduction-research conversations all lined up for binge-listening that it will take years of listening to The Paracast one week at a time to get there. And that’s assuming Gene and whichever co-host are even capable of holding the kinds of deep conversations they are baby-stepping toward now.

What do 2016 and 2017 hold for The Paracast’s fresh perspective? No spoilers but … let’s just say there are some big revelations coming regarding Budd Hopkins’ work, too. I, for one, cannot wait for Gene and that other guy to figure out the Linda Cortile Case. And I don’t have to. The answers are all here:


And if you’d like to see what an authentic scientific survey of all things paranormal looks like, well that’s free! And it comes to you courtesy of 2014! Perhaps Gene and what’s-his-name will do their revolutionary version of our survey in 2019. But again, why wait? The future is… a few years ago.




Oh, PS: I see where Gene is now claiming that there is some audio prior to the infamous Emma Woods multiple personality disorder audio clip that, should Jacobs release it, might exonerate him. This is nonsense. I have heard all of the audio recordings and read the follow-up emails between Emma and the good doctor. Probably what he’s talking about is the fact that before the session, Jacobs was talking to her about this in a jokey way so that she thought he was… you know… kidding. And then he put her under and implanted the suggestion.

If his defense is that she agreed to let him tell her under hypnosis that he believes she and all abductees have MPD because alien hybrids–excuse me, hubrids–will read that when they read her mind and leave him alone? Then he is nuts. Even by his own loony logic it couldn’t work, because if she doesn’t believe what he’s implanted in her then neither will mind readers. (Let’s not even get into the intergalactic cowardice of an alleged researcher throwing his subject under the alien bus to save himself.)

As to the question of her recording him illegally, he gave her copies of his recordings of the hypnosis sessions. And he knew she recorded their phone calls as he clearly states during their phone calls. But let’s suppose she did record him without his knowledge. And now let’s put that horrible crime up against David Jacobs offering in all seriousness to buy her a chastity belt with nails at the vaginal opening that he said might slow down the brutal, raping hubrids… but also might not. And if not, would at least anger them. Anger the raping, violent terrorists from space… was his recommendation to a woman seeking his help…  from the raping, violent terrorists from space… who didn’t exist until he yammered on about his other subjects and their alleged hubrid experiences and then hypnotized her.

What are we arguing about again? Christ, is this thing on?!–The man implanted raping alien hubrid memories in his subject and then tried to buy her sex toys to ward them off or piss them off!  As with Bill Cosby, you have to hate women to defend David Jacobs.

The Emma Woods case is a no-brainer and I fully expect Gene to get this and bring the big revelation to his listeners sometime in mid-2021. Then again, maybe not. The Paracast isn’t the “gold standard” of anything and Gene is not, in my opinion, a sharp thinker in this field. It’s just that so many other people are even duller thinkers than he, it makes him look all shiny and sharp. It’s the old joke about a cracker tasting like a 5-star meal to a starving person.

Gene is, if nothing else, a cracker.

Why Alien Symbols And Math Will Turn Out To Be Meh-Worthy


Know what I’m sick of in ufology this week? It’s that the old guard is trying to gussy themselves up, polish their dull spots, and present themselves as not-the-problem. They are doing this by mimicking dissenting voices, downplaying hypnosis, and pretending to do scientific studies. It’s as if the world of ufology listened to Paratopia, read Project Core, and said, “I can sound like those guys!”

Listening to Peter Robbins talk about the problems of ufology on Jim Harold’s show is like listening to Jeff Ritzmann or me or a handful of others talk about those same problems–except we’d be naming him as one of the problems. Personality Disclaimer: Peter is a nice guy. I like him personally. This is not mud-slinging. It’s a fact that he is the very thing he’s lamenting in that interview.

Being a part of the solution means actually doing what you say you do–which is following the evidence wherever it leads. Not sounding like you do. Not claiming that you do. Actually doing it. And let’s not get started on feeling compelled to come up with new material to keep your career as a stage performer. I won’t accuse Peter of that, but his friends? Oh, the company he keeps.

But I’m only picking on Peter because I just listened to as much of that show as I could stomach. He’s not the whole of the problem; there are many like him. Some have even banded together to form “new” “scientific” groups doing “never-before-performed” studies and surveys of abductees.

Christ, really?

And these fresh faces of the new include the likes of the same-old-shit hypnotists that got us into this mess in the first place. One of them is working on decoding some mathematical equations allegedly given to alien abductees by aliens. This only interests me because an experiencer friend of mine told me back in September that members of his group were also coming back from experiences with equations and he wouldn’t tell me more than that. It was all hush-hush, apparently.

I’m going to go on a limb here and say that in all cases these equations will turn out to be of no consequence whatsoever. But I’m going to give you something to chew on as to why. No, it’s not the Trickster and I won’t make a Stan Romanek joke. It has to do with my last blog post.

If any bookworm out there in ufology is looking for a real clue that you can sink your teeth into to further the investigation into the nature of this stuff, I’m giving it to you free of charge. Unless you think the following is coincidence, someone with a brain please do something with this….

Hallucinogenic Transcendence

  • When one takes a dose of a psychedelic ample enough to break through to the crazy carnival of transpersonal mind, the barrier one goes through is a visual of flashing symbols and geometric patterns. It is as if one transcends logical structures to end up in the hyper-real imagination that exists beyond yet inclusive of one’s personal imagination.

Spiritual Transcendence

  • When one is on the verge of transcending the personal mind and transpersonal mind–leaving the brain-born and the human collective consciousness for that universal “I Am” nothingness/all things experience in which both minds exist, one receives logical, rational, spontaneous epiphanies and insights into the nature of reality.

Alien Communication/Download

  • Sometimes when one engages with the enigmatic other, often called “alien,” the communication begins with flashing symbols, geometric patterns, and mathematical formulas. And sometimes these are perceived to be “downloads.”

Could it be that in spirituality universal, logical truths come to us not because enlightened beings or god(s) deem us worthy to report such wisdom to our tribe but because that’s the barrier of the brain or of the rigid, rational self caving in?

Could it be that in the psychedelic trip it’s a similar story? A logical breech into the translogical means you see the logical being breeched?

Similar also in the “alien” encounter, which marries the two: an experiencer perceives these beings from on high downloading their brains with symbols or otherwise being shown flashing visuals of physics.

Could these three similar/same types of visuals be what the fabric of reality looks like when the egoic, rigid self is about to transcend its own state and/or its own physics? Do we, in those moments, necessarily see… physics?

There might be something we can grab onto here. At the very least, we can say that when these abductee equations come back as a hodge-podge of stuff we already know, we’ll have another theory to look at besides they’re lying, they’re delusional, or it’s the self-negating principle of Trickster Theory.

And we can now question whether these equations were given to them or were just a natural part of their hyper-real circumstance.

Hyper-real circumstance… hmmm… This means that an alien abduction… ah…  how do I put this delicately for the alien crusaders? … Wait for it… –ain’t nuts and bolts aliens here with us in the flesh and blood.

Yes, taking a look at what I just laid out means calling into question the reality in which abductions take place. It may mean there’s no Star Trek-like disclosure coming anytime soon because the abduction or communication–whatever the correct term is at this point–is taking place not in a ship hovering over one’s house, but in a frequency right next to channel normal, which is located just outside the bubble of the brain-born self.

Are the Peter Robbins’ of the world ready to tackle that? Ready to give up the hypnosis crusade and the Rendlesham noise of the dying cottage industry they built or partied in, yet now wish to publicly divorce themselves from?

Cricket… Cricket….





Project Core… Is Here

Time to break the internet. Tell everyone you know, Project Core is finally here. Jeff Ritzmann, Tyler Kokjohn, and I have spoken of it quite a bit through the years. Finally, it’s time for the project to speak for itself.

Please tell everyone you know, not because there are earth-shattering revelations here, but because this is what science looks like when applied to a study of encounter experiences. We’re not the only ones doing it but we are the most vocal as far as I can tell.

It’s time to dial back the circus and promote honest work again, yeah?
