A Means to an Unknown End
"Maybe it wasn’t so much about treatment, and it was more about testing. Experimental, maybe."
Most of my readers are likely familiar with the Netflix series Stranger Things. Spanning four seasons and set in the 1980s, the show follows the lives of several adolescents and their families as they grapple with supernatural forces originating from a sinister parallel dimension aptly named "The Upside Down."
The real-life involvement of the Department of Energy in the UFO coverup is reflected throughout the plotline, as paranormal experiments conducted at the nearby Hawkins National Laboratory accidentally open the portal to this alternate reality.
Reminiscent of the more UFO-centric Sekret Machines fiction series written by Tom DeLonge and AJ Hartley, a plethora of true occurrences are used as building blocks to weave the narrative. The writers of Stranger Things give a nod to actual studies conducted by the US government and defense contractors in what most would refer to as "fringe science." The star of these experiments is a young girl introduced to the audience as "Eleven," a name derived from her test subject number reflected in a tattoo on her arm.
Eleven was taken from her mother as a baby by the director of Hawkins National Lab when it was revealed she had psychic powers. Raised by Dr. Martin Brenner at the nuclear facility with several other children who also displayed psi abilities, Eleven demonstrates exceptional abilities in parapsychological lore like remote viewing and telekinesis.
Unnervingly, my recent research has shown that this fictional origin story of Eleven may not be too far off from the realities experienced by certain individuals caught up in the more clandestine nature of US national security dating back to World War II.
The initiation of Nazi-inspired mind control programs like MKULTRA resulted in decades of illegal experiments being conducted on unsuspecting American citizens. The worst records of these were destroyed by the CIA before they could become public, and many recent revelations brought to light by proponents of UFO transparency demonstrate this culture is still alive and well within pockets of our intelligence community.
Before we continue, I would like the reader to know that I am well aware of the hijacking of the child trafficking epidemic by conspiracy groups like QAnon for recruitment purposes. I find these perversions of human trauma abhorrent and speak out against them as forcefully as I can. These can be dangerous rabbit holes when explored without the proper context or evidence, which I will do my best to provide through historical records.
My intention for the speculation that follows is for it to be interpreted as a thought experiment and not a statement of fact. I strongly urge all of my readers to use discernment in these areas, and also be aware that high-profile members of our defense establishment have actively promoted QAnon conspiracies themselves.
So with all of that said, it is hard not to wonder what these factions within our intelligence community and private defense industry may be hiding when considering events that have transpired over the past week. If they are willing to so brazenly engage Congress to thwart legislation referring to such an absurd accusation as non-human technology in their possession, what information are they concealing that could justify such an open admission of corruption?
What is the alternative to this clear vindication of the UFO community's damning accusations of illegal acts?
Perhaps it may turn out that some — if not most — are more accurate than the public suspect.
It has been somewhat frustrating to witness the lack of media coverage in the wake of such mind-blowing revelations as told by UFO whistleblower David Grusch. Even after doubling down on his claims of a coverup related to non-human technology while under oath in a public Congressional hearing, there has been zero follow-up on the story by major mainstream outlets.
A few weeks ago, however, Grusch finally got a chance to expand on his story from one of the largest platforms to date when he was finally interviewed on Joe Rogan's podcast. Grusch made countless statements during a conversation with Rogan that ran for over two hours, but one thing he said stood out to me distinctly in the context of our current conversation.
After wading into the subject of telepathy and its relationship to the UFO phenomenon, his following words made me raise my eyebrows as I processed their implications.
Grusch: There were CIA documents about consciousness, and weird remote viewing stuff besides the Star Gate program that were released in the FOIA reading room on the CIA's website that were pretty trippy. It's like, "Wow, the CIA is looking into some really interesting stuff. They're a hardcore intel agency. What's going on there?
Rogan: They would kind of have to find out if that was bullshit or not. You can't ignore that if you were really doing your job if your job is intelligence.
Grusch: Or it's an aspect of the phenomenon because it's like a reach out from the crash retrieval program. Like, "Hey, I need you to look into some weird stuff because it might be the key to unlock something that we've got in a warehouse."
For a while now, I've been wondering why there seems to be such a connection and crossover of government-affiliated scientists between the UFO and psi phenomena programs. As I've written about previously, it appears the general correlation has to do with the potential consensus that these non-human craft can only be piloted through consciousness or a form of telepathy.
This very concept is explored in Sekret Machines within the character Alan's plotline. Alan is a decorated fighter pilot with elite cognitive response time. After encountering a craft in the Middle East, he is actively recruited into the UFO program for the ultimate purpose of successfully flying a non-human saucer after repeated failure by others to do so.
At one point in the first novel of the series, after nearly all of the reverse-engineered triangles that were based on the non-human saucer technology had been destroyed, Alan had no choice but to attempt to pilot the disk-shaped craft itself. Without any control surfaces, the mechanism behind the propulsion had stymied the engineers, who could only get it to hover briefly within the confines of the hangar.
“I have to caution you against this,” said Riordan. “It’s a very different ship from the Locust. There’s still a lot …”
Again the hesitation, the evasion.
“What?” Alan demanded. “I’m taking it up. That’s how it is. So if you know something that might help keep me alive while I’m in it, now’s the time to tell me.”
Riordan’s internal struggle lasted only a second. The constant looping wail of the siren and its various warnings seemed to be getting to him.
“It’s a captured ship, sir,” he said. “The tech is unfamiliar because we didn’t build it.”
Riordan’s eyes flashed away. “That’s what I heard, sir,” he said.
“You’re not sure? How is that possible?”
“We’re just the engineers, sir,” said Riordan with a touch of hauteur. “Our job here is to figure out how stuff works. In this case, we’re still learning. We’ve had men working on it day and night for weeks, and we still don’t know …”
“It will fly?” “Yes, sir, but we’ve only brought it to a controlled hover in the hangar. It’s never really gone up. The controls are minimal, keyed to the user.”
Alan stared at him.
“Telepathically,” said Riordan, looking more than uncomfortable. He was frightened of what he was saying, and Alan couldn’t blame him. It was staggering. “You hold on to the controller inside,” said Riordan, his voice low, “and it … reacts. To your thoughts. To be honest, sir, we haven’t dared take it more than a few feet off the ground. We just don’t know what it will do.”
Alan nodded, feeling a strange calm come over him as if he were already in the pilot’s seat.
“Maybe that’s the point,” said Alan. “You need to really want it to fly.”
When you pause to consider that DeLonge’s military advisors at his company gave him the information to put in these books as a form of soft disclosure, it becomes clear that the piloting of these craft through telepathic means may prove to be one of the truer aspects of UFO lore. We can begin to see a narrative forming with this excerpt, as it is taken together with Grusch's inference that the same mechanisms behind remote viewing may be the key to unlocking this technology.
However, a more sinister aspect of Alan's unique abilities rises to the surface in the second Sekret Machines book — aspects that could lead to serious questions of morality in the same vein as Eleven's origin story as told in Stranger Things. Such parallels, as we shall see, may even explain some of the seemingly illogical and potentially brutal actions taken by these gatekeepers against Congress and the American people in recent days.
Luckily I am quite familiar with the CIA remote viewing documents Grusch brought up to Rogan that were (importantly) separate from the Star Gate program. I’ve been curious about why these studies took place after the psi programs were moved out of the Army and into the private sector, as this mirrors the exact strategy behind the UFO reverse engineering programs.
I don't believe it is a coincidence that Grusch stated there might be a connection between these two projects. The similarities between the privatization of the two solidifies my suspicions to a much higher degree than before.
The documents Grusch is referring to were produced by a lesser-known company called Science Applications International Corporation, or SAIC. SAIC was founded in 1969 by John Robert Beyster in La Jolla, California, incidentally the area of San Diego where I myself spent the first two years of my life. After enlisting in the Navy during World War II, Beyster was sent to college to become a nuclear physicist, and worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory through the 1950s. After founding SAIC, he remained the chairman until 2004.
SAIC was a unique company in the defense business due to it being entirely owned by its employees. This inspired a highly entrepreneurial atmosphere within an extremely decentralized — or compartmentalized — organizational configuration. The company recruited the brightest minds in the country to work on scientific problems for the most classified programs and need-to-know was almost a company policy.
The scientists working on the SAIC remote viewing studies — all of which were conducted in the 1990s — referred to psi phenomena as "anomalous cognition," or AC. One study proposal focused on using telepathy to influence lucid dreaming in a sleeping individual by assigning them a task to complete while they were consciously aware in their dream. Analysis of previous evidence cited to justify the study stated that "significant evidence for AC was observed under a variety of conditions" when the dreamers reported on their experiences.
A lucid dream is one during which the sleeper becomes consciously aware that the experience is a dream as opposed to the waking state. LaBerge et al. (1981) have found that it is possible for dreamers to know when they dreaming and to signal the waking world, through predetermined eye movements, indicating their awareness. Using this ability, LaBerge et al. (1986 and 1988) conducted a number of psychophysiological studies to determine the differences between waking and dreaming from that prospective. They found that dreaming is similar to the waking state. Motor action is mostly inhibited from the brain stem downward; however, the cerebral cortex appears not to "know" this.
In this preliminary pilot study, we will use the skills developed by LaBerge to teach individuals to lucid dreams. Differing from the earlier AC dream studies, our dreamers will be instructed to adopt a proactive attitude to seek out and remember the AC target. In this way, we will determine the degree to which lucid dreaming can facilitate the reception of AC material.
Another SAIC study on the CIA website focuses partly on "anomalous perturbation (AP)," more commonly known as telekinesis. Although the proposal states that less evidence exists for scientific proof of AP than standard AC, they still recommend research on the subject and define AP as "the perturbation of physical matter under conditions of complete physical and sensorial isolation."
We're now wading more deeply into Stranger Things territory, as telekinesis is one of the most effective psychic powers Eleven can wield. Considering SAIC was founded by a veteran of Los Alamos and does an enormous amount of contractual work with the Department of Energy, the idea that a setting like Hawkins National Laboratory is being used for psi experiments in the show starts to feel a little less fictitious.
But would secretive government contractors like SAIC really involve children in their studies, or is that just an outrageous plot point in a popular Netflix series?
To explore this idea, let's turn to some testimony and historical records that might suggest the former.
To build a framework for the evidence, it is pertinent to review the scenario we started laying out with Sekret Machines. A few sections of these books will be quoted at length due to the importance they will serve in subsequent arguements.
To reiterate, these books are fiction based on real-world events as told to Tom DeLonge by his military advisors, but because time has proven more of the stories true as demonstrated by Grusch's testimony in front of Congress under sworn oath, the narrative may be based more in reality than we would like to believe.
In the second edition of the series, Alan starts to have some bizarre anomalous events happen to him as a result of flying the non-human craft in the previous book. He unintentionally commanded a salt shaker to slide across the table at a diner when he became emotional that nobody had heard him when he asked them to pass it. In another odd intuitive reaction, he appeared to move a car out of the way by simply willing it to happen, avoiding an imminent crash that seemed inevitable only a few moments before.
At one point, Alan reminisces with his childhood friend Barry — another military officer who was miraculously assigned to Area 51 — about a doctor who used to come to see them both when he was in town. Timika, another character in the series who is adept at investigating conspiracies along with her friend Marvin, finds it odd that the same physician saw the younger Alan and Barry and they found themselves working together in the military as adults.
Timika and Marvin discover that the blood disorders that justified their checkups from this doctor weren't a real diagnosis after interviewing Barry's mother, who seemed evasive and eventually asked them to leave her house. They also realize the physician, named Dr. Vespasian, was a US Air Force Captain from Tysons Corner, Virginia.
Vespasian's location, it turns out, appears to be very relevant to our conversation.
“Well, it might be nothing but I see a Captain Vespasian in the Air Force who was listed as resident in Tysons Corner.”
“Barry and Alan were both Marines. So were their families. Why would they be seeing an Air Force doc from out of state?”
“I don’t know,” he conceded. “Do either of them show symptoms of their conditions?”
“Not that I’ve seen, but I don’t know how they would manifest.”
“Sure,” said Marvin. “But it’s weird, right? Health issues serious enough to get them looked at by a DOD doctor as kids but no symptoms and no interruption to their military careers as adults? Also, I looked into those conditions you described. That’s what I was going to tell you before. The firewall on these old digitized medical records ain’t what it should be.”
“What did you find, Marvin?”
“Right, so you said Barry has beta thalassemia from one parent and hemoglobin E from the other.”
“Well, here’s the thing; neither parent was ever treated or—so far as I can see, diagnosed—with either condition. I checked their records. Some arthritis late in life, statins for cholesterol for Barry’s father, a hysterectomy for his mum five years after Barry was born. Nothing else worth noting.”
“You think there was nothing wrong with them?” “I can’t say for sure because their records are sealed tighter than a duck’s ass. Can’t get near them.”
“Okay,” said Timika, not sure what to do with this, but getting the same prickle of anxiety she had felt before. Something wasn’t right.
"One more thing,” said Marvin, “then you should go. In 2009 Tysons Corner, Virginia, became home to the SAIC: Science Applications International Corporation.”
“Which is what?”
“Not entirely clear,” said Marvin. “It’s part think tank, part R & D corporation emphasizing information technology, with fingers in various military pies including intelligence and engineering. They, and the related Leidos Corporation, have contracts with the NSA, Homeland Security, the works. Billions of dollars’ worth. They recently absorbed Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems and Global Solutions business. Heavy stuff, Timika. Seriously heavy stuff. According to this document I’m reading now, SAIC adopted a matrix operating model in which different service lines collaborate to serve a given contract.”
“What the hell does that mean?”
“One-stop shopping for the military and intelligence services. They do it all: physical tech, personnel, information systems and intelligence gathering, connections all the way up the chain of command. You’d better hope these folks are on your side.”
“But when Barry and Alan were kids it would have been different, right?”
“Yeah,” said Marvin in a voice that implied only kind of. “These places tend to stay in the DOD family. Whatever it was then, I’ll bet it involved intelligence and technology, probably experimental.”
The fact that DeLonge names SAIC in this "fictional" scenario is fascinating and is a detail that could likely have only come from his military advisors giving him this information. The idea that an Air Force doctor would visit children on behalf of SAIC under false pretenses is immensely disturbing if this scenario is even slightly true.
But what could the true nature of these "check-ups" be?
DeLonge fills us in on a few more unnerving aspects of Dr. Vespasian's interest in the boys. After a run-in with the doctor, Barry explains the situation to Timika
“You doing okay? That stuff with Vespasian must have gotten under your skin. No pun intended.”
Barry grinned mirthlessly. “I’m okay,” he said. “Angry. Anxious. But okay. There’s still a lot to learn about what exactly they did to us, who authorized it, and what the results might be, but for now, yeah, I’m okay.”
Timika hadn’t understood much of what Vespasian—badgered and weary—had confessed about the artificial modification of codons and amino acids in the human genetic code. The doctor had tossed the terms out scornfully, knowing they wouldn’t mean much to the layman, all that stuff about CRISPR—Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats—and Cas9. That had been intended to obscure rather than explain. But Barry had worried at him like a dog with a chew toy until Vespasian had used less opaque but rather more troubling terms like targeted genome editing. The Chinese were doing it, he said, as if that made everything okay. It was a huge leap forward, a monumental progression in molecular biology with all manner of applications, a field in which he had been an unsung pioneer . . .
But what it all added up to, Timika was still unsure and so, Barry thought, was Vespasian. He had tweaked people’s genetic code, rewritten the building blocks of their humanity, but what he had achieved in the process or why he had done it, he couldn’t—or wouldn’t—say, and when Barry pressed the matter, Vespasian had merely become hungry for information.
“What can you do?” he said. “What triggered the change?”
Barry said nothing, but the hunted look in his eyes was all the confirmation Vespasian needed, and while the doctor wouldn’t give up anything further and left under guard, he did so with a look of almost serene triumph on his face. He didn’t know what he had done. Not really. But seeds he had planted decades before had sprouted and that, he had decided, was validation enough.
Timika and Barry had boarded the plane in somber mood, but Barry was less upset than she had expected and seemed almost relieved that the truth was out where he could see it, even if that truth was unsettling and incomplete. There was a great deal more still to be revealed, but he seemed somehow lighter, as if the secret was something he had been dimly half aware of all his life. Now he could tackle it and its implications head on.
In summation, it appears whatever the doctor did to Alan and Barry's DNA triggered an explosion of psi abilities after the mechanism was activated through non-human technology. This is an intense revelation, and would no doubt be something to hide from the public if children had been involved in experimental genome modification only to have it present itself with unknown consequences in adulthood.
But again, this is a fictional novel with no proof to back up these scenarios. So I did a little digging through the newspaper archives from the 1990s to see what SAIC was up to and did not come away empty-handed.
I figured I would search for some articles on SAIC for any potential clues to support the claims made in Sekret Machines, but journalists surprisingly were not the most informative sources of information on this front. What became very revealing about SAIC's activities in the 1990s — again, when the remote viewing experiments that are still classified were conducted — came from the company itself in the form of job advertisements.
Before we dive into those findings, I want to address one last hint DeLonge gave us about why Alan and Barry's parents might have given the military consent to run experimental tests on their own children — by way of Dr. Vespasian's emotional reaction to a question posed by Timika.
She saw the concern beneath Vespasian’s anger. There was something he was keen to keep hidden, which was probably why he was sitting in on this little chat in the first place. “If you’re not actually treating a condition,” she said, “why would you need to see patients on a regular basis, and perform so many invasive procedures? That’s what Barry told me—of his own free will, mind you. He was always sticking us with needles, drawing blood, pumping us full of stuff. So I start thinking, maybe it wasn’t so much about treatment, and it was more about testing. Experimental, maybe. Using the military cover and promises to the family about the boys’ future careers to do things the AMA might not look too favorably on.”
“That’s an outrageous accusation,” Vespasian huffed. “How dare you . . . !”
Considering the decision to designate the character of Vespasian as an Air Force doctor, the way SAIC is so intertwined with the US intelligence apparatus and compartmentalization within the corporation itself, I figured it would be interesting to look into SAIC's Tysons Corner location and the positions all the locations were hiring for.
A spokesman for Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) of San Diego, Calif., a Pentagon contractor that in recent years has coordinated much of the work, said, "We aren't going to be able to discuss any details about this without permission from the client." The principal SAIC manager on the project worked out of Tysons Corner.
So we now have confirmation that the psi programs in the 1990s run by SAIC were managed out of the Tysons Corner office, the same as Dr. Vespasian. In this context, the real-world job advertisements from the same era are quite concerning.
Perusing the classifieds (no pun intended) of the November 6, 1994 edition of The Atlanta Journal, I was very surprised to find a recruitment advertisement from SAIC under the section titled "Social Workers" and labeled "Counselors."
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) specializes in providing counseling services internationally. We are currently recruiting for Adolescent Counselors for assignment in Germany.
Successful candidates will possess a Master's in Psychology or MSW, clinical license or certification, and three years full-time clinical adolescent substance abuse experience. LCSW preferred.
SAIC is an employee-owned company that offers a competitive salary, cost of living allowance, and benefits.
Qualified candidates should mail or fax a letter of interest, resume, and copy of license/clinical certification to:
SAIC, Dept. KHS-78, 1710
Goodridge Drive, McLean, VA 22102,
Attn: Kim Hessler. FAX#: (703) 821-4663.
An Equal Opportunity Employer
U.S. citizenship required.
This puzzling advertisement raises a couple questions in my mind.
Why would a defense contractor so deeply embedded in the clandestine intelligence world be stating in a job ad that they specialize in providing counseling services to adolescents internationally?
Why, specifically, would SAIC need to recruit social workers to assist children with their substance abuse issues in Germany?
As confounding as this advertisement is, there are several more that state SAIC is interested in hiring for similar positions. Another advertisement appeared in the November 2, 1997 issue of Detroit Free Press under the "Education" section titled "Early Childhood Special Educators."
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is the nation's largest employee-owned high technology and health sciences firm. With annual revenues in excess of $2.4 billion, the company and subsidiaries have more than 24,000 employees at offices in 150 cities Currently, we are seeking Childhood Special Educators to work with American families and their children with developmental delays in Europe, Iceland, and Korea.
Masters degree in Early Childhood/Special Education
Two years experience as service provider to infants and toddlers with disabilities
One year experience as a member of an interdisciplinary medical or early intervention team, providing family-centered intervention or in a community-based service delivery system.
Positions also available for Occupational Physical Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Nurses, Developmental Pediatricians, Clinical Child Psychologists and Family Service Coordinators. Some these positions may be available for some short-assignments.
SAIC offers very competitive salaries and a living quarters allowance in addition to an outstanding benefits package including insurance plans, comprehensive leave and a 401(k) plan.
It's honestly quite disturbing seeing job ads for social workers and special educators against the backdrop of other eyebrow-raising technological recruitment requests, particularly the first one on this list:
Kinetic Energy Weapons
Fighter Pilot Training Systems
Laser Hardened Materials Evaluation
Hospital System Installers
Organized Crime Law Enforcement
International Travel Supervisors
Here is a gallery of SAIC job ads for the reader to peruse and quantify the significance for themselves.
If there truly is a Dr. Vespasian scenario going on at SAIC, as the term "human engineering" would suggest, it would make more sense to involve American families in other countries.
When you consider certain developmental aspects of the brain that are being studied in relation to the UFO phenomenon, the idea that this technology might activate something within the genome if placed there artificially, and how remote viewing programs may be related to the crash retrieval aspect of this coverup, things start to feel very eerie.
Several stories outside of the specific framework discussed in the previous sections of this article appear to corroborate this recurring theme of the intelligence and defense establishment’s interest in recruiting children for future careers in the military. The most recent example of this was revealed by one of professor Diana Pasulka’s academic colleagues in her new book, Encounters: Experiences with Nonhuman Intelligences.
As Pasulka became friends with Patty, another professor in her department, she started to notice some peculiar aspects of her life story and how she made multiple mentions of a “secret space program.”
On many occasions she mentioned that her father worked for the “secret space program.” I had never heard of that before but took note. It was only years later, when a television production company reached out to me, post-UFO life, about the secret space program, that I “connected the dots,” as Tyler would say.
But what Patty told me about her childhood and the space program was nothing like the mythology that is propagated by social and entertainment media. Instead, it corresponded to the lived realities of the people I had come to know—those involved with the most innovative technology, and the space industry, and those whom Tyler had named “factions within the intelligence communities.”
In an interview with Pasulka, Patty explains how, in hindsight, her parents were overly protective of her to an absurd degree — even speculating that their primary concern was their daughter being kidnapped. Another interesting anecdote about her father is that his primary languages were Italian and German, suggesting that he and/or his parents may have been brought to America as part of Project Paperclip.
Patty then speaks about an accelerated program at school her parents enrolled her in called “EAP.” She states she was taken out of her regular class two days a week, skipped grades four through six, and that many of her classmates there “had died young, as had many in other cohorts of EAP beginning before my own.”
Pasulka ends the chapter summarizing Patty’s experience and asking some pertinent questions about its implications.
Like Simone and Tyler, Patty downloads information. Her frustration for having to show her math work in school is telling. She just knew the answers. What she didn’t know was that she was a child of an Invisible, a man whose job dictated strict limits and constraints on his family. Patty didn’t understand how different her childhood was from her friends’ because how could she know otherwise?
Patty wasn’t the only child of an Invisible I knew, but she was the one I knew best and the one whose story is safe to tell. But there are others whose lives were even more constrained and whose alienation from normal society had taken a sad toll on them.
As an outsider looking into this world, I wonder who or what organization was responsible for these rules and regulations? Did they question the ethical and moral justification for these programs that influenced the lives of these children so significantly?
Interestingly, Pasulka asks the main question we are trying to solve here.
Who is in charge of making these decisions?
An interview with Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper may provide some insight on this inquiry. An article summarizing an appearance Cooper made on Coast to Coast in 2000 suggests these programs involve NASA as well, who has also been a significant customer of SAIC throughout the decades.
Siegel asked Cooper: "Who were the space kids?" Cooper answered: "The space kids were children with exceptional mental abilities [Star Kids] run through a kind of MK [MKUltra CIA mental programming] program, like the things that are coming out now." He went on to describe how NASA's mind-control program, which emphasized cultivation of the children's psychic abilities, involved such things as telepathy, remote viewing, and out-of-body-experiences (OBE's).
“Cooper's remarks generally support the claims of a growing cadre of Americans, now in their thirties, forties, and fifties, [and sixties -Ed.], who are recovering memories of unusual classes that they were enrolled in as children during the advent of the Space Age.
These "study groups" included speed reading lessons that enabled students to comprehend entire passages of English prose at a single glance, the use of learning machines to teach them vast amounts of information, advanced memory training, card games and situational exercises involving clairvoyance, and seminars in the guided imagination that forms the basis of "remote viewing."
“It is believed that NASA's mind control program was directed at preparing children who would later be able to communicate with the non-human intelligent species that humanity might encounter in space. This thesis is supported by the fact that one experiencer remembers being tutored in a hieroglyphic alphabet that author Fritz Springmeier has identified as a set of "intergalactic symbols" developed by NASA for the purpose of communicating with extraterrestrial civilizations.
“The accounts of some individuals suggest that in some cases, the children involved were given drugs to enhance memory and learning, and were physically spun on table top-like devices to induce the altered state of consciousness associated with OBE's [out-of-body experiences].
This sounds eerily in line with Patty’s early experience in the program, though she may have not advanced to the ultimate phase of psychic training due to her disdain for authority figures. Cooper’s description of spinning to induce OBE’s was echoed just a few months ago by former Skinwalker Ranch owner Robert Bigelow, who described an Air Force officer floating above his own body as it walked down a hallway after hitting extreme G-forces in a centrifuge.
An additional piece of history to consider is what transpired at the Ossining, New York home of Army doctor Andrija Puharich, known primarily for his work with psychic Uri Gellar. The plotline of Stranger Things is largely believed to be based on Puharich’s psychic training of children at his residence, with the character Dr. Martin Brenner actually based on Puharich himself.
In a biographical sketch of Puharich by his ex-wife titled The Maverick, the existence of a “space kids” program appears to be corroborated by one of the people who knew him the best. She became concerned when she learned her and Puharich’s son Andy was participating in a bizarre project involving extraterrestrial children at her ex-husband’s property.
I had no idea what "the experimental school" entailed, and I was sick with worry about my fourteen-year-old son. But Andy's letters soon reassured me that nothing dangerous, weird or spooky was going on. On the contrary, he was really having a wonderful experience. All the kids lived by themselves at the "Turkey Farm", a house on the estate, and maintained a strict daily routine of meditation, dream telling sessions, hobby time, workouts and swimming.
They took turns cleaning the house and doing the cooking. Either Andrija or somebody else would give talks on the hazards of drugs or smoking, or any subject they felt was detrimental to the physical or emotional well being of the youngsters. Andy wrote that his father also gave interesting talks on religion, the Self, and personal growth, but that he could not always understand what daddy was talking about, because the words he used were too difficult for his limited English.
But Andy never told me what it meant to be a "space kid" until recently. If he had told me back then that each kid was hypnotized in order to go back to his "parent civilization," I would probably have flipped, and kept him home.
According to Andy, most of the kids present came from another planet. They had voluntarily returned to planet Earth to help in the raising of human consciousness. By being born as a human they had to go through the same things anyone has to go through, meaning that they could also get trapped by all the earthly distractions and forget about their true self. "That's why daddy set up that program," Andy told me, "to remind those kids of their mission in life, or at least tell them what they were, and what their mission was.
Also to help them evolve themselves, and teach them how to use the knowledge they already had. Even the child Jesus was born as a regular human being," my son continued, "and he had to evolve himself just like anyone else. As he grew up he knew that inside he had all knowledge, but that he was too trapped in his ordinary life. So he went into the desert for forty day to drop all earthly desires, to let go of self, and become a higher spirit. Buddha in fact did the same."
Such a bizarre development like the “star kids” initiative adds color to reality of the government’s involvement with the testing of children’s minds.
However, we may soon get more answers to these questions in an upcoming book by a former intelligence officer under the pseudonym Scott Andrews. A Deadline article announcing the release of this non-fiction story contains a mind-blowing summary of what to expect. Even more intriguing is that Lue Elizondo, the former director of the Pentagon’s UFO program, has vouched for the author and endorsed the story’s credibility wholeheartedly.
Set to publish in 2024, the narrative outlines how Andrews came home from a mission suffering a debilitating illness and “began to experience special, inexplicable abilities such as remote viewing, and his body began to heal, baffling doctors.”
As he sought more information about his health, Andrews came across a file compiled for him by his late father. It contained records from a past he did not remember, including documents indicating he was removed from school for weeks every year, from the first through 12th grades. The records also contained a shocker, that he received an honorable discharge from the U.S Air Force and worked in space intelligence communications as a minor. Andrews maintains he has no memory of having served in the U.S Air Force.

The reality of MKULTRA was hard to come to grips with for many, and it makes one question what aspects of those kinds of programs might still be lurking around under the surface in the private sector. If these covert features of our intelligence apparatus prove to be true, it's no wonder there are reports of threats being made to members of Congress by those who do not want this can of worms opened.
