With this attitude by my UFO collegue, trust and continued participation as a board member of AFU and UFO-Sweden would be impossible. My only option was to leave the board of both organizations. A bitter pill to swallow as I became a member of UFO-Sweden in 1970 and was one of the founders of AFU in 1973. But I guess this is the fate of the culture radical and heretic. I have never, and will never be, a yes-man. I still adhere to the motto of my old mentor Riley Crabb: ”If I have one goal in life it is an uncompromising search for Truth, whatever that might be, and wherever it may lead.” My hope is that given time this clash of opinions will come to an end and more normal working relationships can be resumed.
But let´s leave this sad state of affairs to history and continue with a more constructive and inspiring theme, the possibility, or theory, of planetary and interplanetary guardians. In a recent email from the New Zeeland ufologist Bryan Dickeson he mentioned a most interesting observation:
”In 2000, I spoke to a "Probus" group (for retired business people) in Bankstown, Sydney, while involved with UFOR(NSW) -- about UFOs. I had referred to foo-fighters during World War 2, but had not mentioned the Middle East at all. Afterwards I was approached by a 65(plus)-year-old gentleman who told me he had been in the Six-Day War as the Commander of a squadron of six Israeli tanks speeding across the Sinai Desert towards the Suez Canal. He said that they were always aware of these unusual, very bright, star-like objects that hovered all around, a few degrees above the horizon through their entire campaign:
"We knew they weren't ours, or Arabic, or Russian, or American. No-one knew whose they were, but they were always there, watching, and they were visible on radar. They never got involved, or made any contact with us, or retaliated in any way, they just watched. They were seen in all our battle zones throughout the Middle East." ” (Email from Bryan Dickeson, February 14, 2017)
This information correspond very well with the findings of American ufologist Robert Hastings who have for many years documented UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites. Hastings has interviewed more than 150 military veterans involved in UFO incidents at various U.S. missile sites, much of this information presented in his book, published in 2008, UFOs and Nukes. Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons sites.
After many years of research Hastings have arrived at these rather astounding conclusions:
”After researching the UFO phenomenon for 39 years, I must conclude that the technology involved is so advanced that a human origin for it can be automatically ruled out in almost every bona fide sighting case… In my view, the essential message conveyed by our visitors is this: As long as nuclear weapons exist, they remain a potential threat to the future of mankind and to the planet itself. Get rid of them! To make their point, those aboard the UFOs periodically monitor and sometimes interfere with the operational readiness of the missiles.” (Interview on Robert Hastings website).
Anyone with basic knowledge of UFO history will notice that this is almost exactly the message given to the first generation UFO contactees of the 1950s, but this time concluded from empirical evidence. Extraterrestrial visitors arrived as guardians to our planet because of the danger of nuclear war and total destruction of our planet. This was the message of George Van Tassel, Orfeo Angelucci, George Adamski, Daniel Fry, Howard Menger a.o. One of the early UFO books was named The Coming of the Guardians, written by BSRA director Meade Layne. This message was delivered to George Van Tassel on July 18, 1952: ”Your materialists will disagree with our attemp to warn mankind. Rest assured they shall cease to explode life giving atoms, or we shall eliminate all projects connected with such. Our missions are peaceful, but this condition occurred before in this solar system and the planet Lucifer was torn to bits. We are determined that it shall not happen again. The governments of the planet Shan have conceded that we are of a higher intelligence. They must concede also that we are of a higher authority.” (George Van Tassel, I Rode a Flying Saucer, 2nd ed. 1952, p. 32).
In the first volume of his diaries, Forbidden Science. Journals 1957 - 1969, Jacques Vallee discuss the theory of planetary guardians: ”Has the future spiritual state of man already been achieved by some individuals? Have certain gifted men already achieved contact, on some plane, with those who may be guiding our psychic evolution?” (p. 80). As a student of Hermeticism, Vallee was certainly aware of that this theory is a basic fact in the Esoteric Tradition. Mankind at its present level is only a step in the evolution of consciousness. Their is a fifth kingdom in nature which we will slowly become aware of during the next centuries. Some representatives of this kingdom are living on our planet, bound together in an secret organization, sometimes called the Planetary Hierarchy and which I have referred to as the Higher Intelligence Agency (HIA).
According to esoteric history this organization decided, during a conclave in 1775, that knowledge of their existence on this planet should be made public, beginning in 1875 with the founding of The Theosophical Society in New York. The decision was not unanimous but regarded as a test to observe how humanity would react to such a new and revolutionary fact. The adept M. explained the problem of this ”disclosure” to his correspondent, journalist Alfred Percy Sinnett: ”… we do not wish Mr.Hume or you to prove conclusively to the public that we really exist. Please realize the fact that so long as men doubt there will be curiosity and enquiry, and that enquiry stimulates reflection which begets effort; but let our secret be once thoroughly vulgarized and not only will sceptical society derive no great good but our privacy would be constantly endangered and have to be continually guarded at an unreasonable cost of power.” (The Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett, Letter no. 29, p. 224).
During the Second World War the forces of destruction was so close to get the upper hand that the planetary guardians asked for assistance from the interplanetary guardians. And this assistance came in large numbers. What happened behind the scenes and details of the struggle is told in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy by Alice Bailey:
April 1935: "... the regenerative forces of Those extraplanetary Beings Who offer Their Help at this time." (p. 25)
April-May 1940: "Hovering today within the aura of our planet are certain great spiritual Forces and Entities, awaiting the opportunity to participate actively in the work of world redemption, re-adjustment and reconstruction.... the waiting extra-planetary Forces." (p. 222-223)
April 1943: "Certain great Energies of extra-planetary significance Who stand ready to intervene..." (p. 392).
That there was co-operation between the planetary and interplanetary guardians was confirmed by that extraordinary organization Borderland Sciences Research Association (BSRA) in 1951. Their motto at the time is interesting: ”Serving Higher Intelligence since 1945”. Here is a quote from a Seance Memoranda From the Inner Circle, November 28, 1951: ”There is a certain secret work going on at present between the Etherians and certain high earth authorities (You understand, I suppose, that I do not use the word ”high” in the usual sense. I am referring to those belonging to some of the secret Lodges on Earth). This work has to do with the great possibility of the Earth´s destruction… These men have landed in Australia in a secret landing field. They have not only been to Scotland, but to high authorities in England, and to a few of your men and women here of high standing (I refer to the secret Orders).” (p. 30)
Meade Layne, founder of BSRA
Information about co-operation between the planetary and interplanetary guardians was also given to some of the first generation UFO contactees:
”The spacecraft that are appearing today are under the direction of the hierarchy of their own planets and are working in close harmony with the masters and mystery schools of the hierarchy on Earth… Thus we see that there is a definite connection between the mystery schools and the UFO. They are really one and the same force in operation… the UFO are in our skies, and we are talking with space me who tell us the same thing that the mentors of this planet have been telling us for many centuries.” (George Hunt Williamson and John McCoy, UFOs Confidential, p. 70)
Because of the critical situation for our planet the interplanetary guardians, in co-operation with the planetary guardians, made a psychological experiment and information effort in the 1950s, to make the general public aware of their existence and why they are here. The experiment was soon terminated but the outcome was a greater awareness and expanding consciousness of our multiverse and its inhabitants. After this experiment they choose to work covertly, behind the scenes. This unhappy planet Earth is today in a very critical condition. Our survival as a kingdom in nature is still at stake. Whether the forces of destruction or construction will win this battle is an open question.
American contactee Daniel Fry was in a very straightforward manner told of our choice:
”There is nothing that is intrinsically wrong with your material science. It will progress and expand to horizons as yet undreamed of, if only your people will provide a spiritual foundation capable of supporting it.
And if they do not? I asked.
Then your civilization will go down, Alan replied slowly.
It will destroy itself in a holocaust which will leave few survivors. Those who do survive will have neither the ability nor the desire to rebuild their science…
Your race and your culture, however, are not doomed to extinction. They may continue upon their upward course until they have left this danger behind them forever.
The choice, you see, is yours.
There is little doubt, I said, which choice the people would make if they had sufficient understanding and they were aware of the constructive and destructive alternatives between which they should choose.
Precisely, Alan replied. That is why we are here, and that is why you are here.”
