As Close As Words Can Come
We are not only beings of the Earth, we are more than that. It is traditionally believed that humans possess an innate knowledge of space, a connection and aspiration towards it. All human cultures believed they knew many secrets of the night skies and of the distant realms beyond them that were capturing their imagination, inspired myths about human origin, ascension, eventual return to those realms, places of power, dwelling places of gods and souls and other things. With the development of science, however, our perception gradually changed, and we began adjusting our views to better align to new discoveries, becoming aware that the way we understood our own and other distant worlds was very much a mirror of our human nature and civilization.
In recent times, a certain innate knowledge of and relationship with other worlds and their beings has become once again very obvious through extraterrestrial contacts. Again, they are considered as a source of meaning, which suggests, in the view of cognitive scientist Timothy L. Hubbard, that humanity may be related to these higher realms in ways both fundamental and intimate, that the human mind and human life may be "tightly coupled" with life in the universe and related in ways that are difficult to imagine.
The connection between extraterrestrial, or, perhaps better to say, higher-dimensional beings and us humans is reflected through many very diverse indirect expressions of the effects of contact: drawings of humanoid-looking beings, various robot-types and hybrid children; fluent speaking of alien-type languages that touch us on a deeper energetic level and that a meaningful part of ourselves can understand; complicated abstract designs that also resonate on some profound and significant level, indicating that there is something more at work than ordinary artistic inspiration. The artists who produce such works say they are downloading information.

Introduction - Manuel Lamiroy
We are not alone. We never have been.
For millennia, humankind has been engaged by non-human intelligences. So, what does that mean? What are the implications? If we want to understand this phenomenon, we must seek to learn from contact experiences. Trying to understand this phenomenon by focusing on UFOs or UAPs makes about as much sense as trying to understand humankind by observing cars. So, we asked our panel what they thought what the most important implications are of contact experiences.
These implications play on many different levels. There are implications on an individual level: how are the contact experiencers affected? How did the experiences change their life, their beliefs? There are implications on many societal levels: Politically, how do governments respond? Socially, how do non-experiencers respond? How do the media respond? What does the contact phenomenon mean for science, and how do scientists respond? Etc. And then, there are the more existential questions for humankind as a species: what does the contact phenomenon mean for our place in the universe? What does it mean for our understanding of reality? What is our relationship with these non-human intelligences? Are they our creators? Are we their cattle? Are they visiting galactic neighbors? The ramifications of the contact experience may very well constitute the greatest challenge humankind has needed to address. The questions are endless, and the answers few. Yet we have reached a point where we no longer can ignore these questions.
Our panel members all approached the topic differently. Some address the implications on an individual level, i.e., for the contact experiencers, while others also look at the bigger picture.
Preston Dennett focuses on the transformational impact of the contact phenomenon. In his article, he looks at how it is already affecting our technology, healing and medicine, environmental awareness, and our spirituality.
Thomas Minderlé starts with his own experiences and talks about how extraterrestrials involved in abductions are secretly manipulating us and preparing us for a new world in which they coexist openly with us.
Bill Konkolesky looks at the wide variety of individual responses we can expect, which may create some challenging times.
Denise Stoner wonders whether the most important implications will be for religions. She also asked the same question about the most important implications to about a dozen contact experiencers. All their replies are included in her article, too.
Nadine Lalich explores how being exposed to species with higher intelligence will affect our consciousness, spirituality, and attitudes, and hopes that we as a species will grow from the experience.
In his article, Giorgio Piacenza has an in-depth look at several tough challenges we will be facing once we are willing to admit we are interacting with Non-Human Intelligences.
In her article, "As Close as Words can come", Nevenka Likar looks at some of the bigger picture questions.

The Most Important Implication of a Contact Experience
By Denise Stoner
When first asked if I would be interested in tackling this topic, I was taken to a place in my head that said this was too much. How could I write on such a topic or even begin to cover all aspects of this subject matter. I could not! I thought it would be interesting to the readers if I “took a poll” of a wide range of individuals. I have a combination of responses from business owners, authors, speakers, teachers, mentors, and experiencers. I’ve added remarks made by a relatively new person attempting to understand what this all means to seasoned individuals. I felt it would be important for us to see how the contributors have interpreted this question.
I am going to begin to tackle the religious and spiritual side of this topic. As an experiencer myself, this aspect of having contact and what impact “disclosure” might have on society is mind boggling once you stop to think about it. Is the effect on the religions of the world the most important? I really can’t make a guess myself.
I was raised with a great faith base. The small New England town I grew up in had one Roman Catholic Church and one Congregational (similar to Methodist) Church. My parents never told me what I had to believe so when I was just beginning my teens, I attended my church (the Congregational), sang in the children’s choir, and more. The difference was the fact that I also attended the Catholic Church with my girlfriends. This was just the beginning of my strong desire, need, calling – to explore so many religions I couldn’t name them all. I joined a few for a while. As an adult, I studied in depth and was a part of what it means to be a Wiccan. Yes, Wicca is considered a religion. I kept my distance from any negative realm other than to read about it and interview a few members. I also wanted to know how these huge places of worship stayed afloat. I was an experiencer and had a close friendship, for lack of a better term, relationship with my ET. By 2013 I had “come out” and was speaking about my ET, visits on their crafts, and much more. I co-authored “The Alien Abduction Files” with Kathleen Marden which let the world know that I knew there was life on other planets and they were visiting here on earth.
Still, there was no proof so no harm is being done to the world economy, religious beliefs, etc. However, did these experiences change me? Yes, I spent several days in deep contemplation in an attempt to figure out how my faith has changed, if it did. I want to say that no matter what my particular faith had been, no matter how it differs now, I AM NOT THE SAME since having contact with the visitors. I am now what I feel is a complete spiritual being open to what the universe has to offer. I don’t need to spend time inside a building in order to connect with a higher power. Prayer is important especially when shared with others who have intent and purpose yet, the place where I worship can easily be the wide open spaces.
Of course, we have atheists and agnostics and must include them. The still lost tribes would suddenly know what they possibly felt all along when practicing their rituals and ceremonies. The Native Americans have their own beliefs and thoughts on the matter and what about Buddha? I’m sure I left some out.
Will the knowledge of visitors from another place just quietly rattle the temples, church pews, and others – or – will the whole idea of what religion means turn the world upside down causing the collapse of each and every one as they once were.
Now, let’s wrap it up and ponder on whether this could possibly be the most important implication of a contact experience. I leave it up to you.
Some of the information I will now add to this article are written, as I mentioned in the beginning, by all types of individuals. They do have one thing in common and that is the need to discover exactly what these UFO/ETs are, where they are from, and how they will affect this beautiful oasis we call planet earth when that information is disclosed to all of us.

Tough Challenges After Admitting the NHI Presence
By Giorgio Piacenza
Basic patterns from several contact experiencers responding to the FREE, MUFON, and Kenneth Ring’s (1980) “Omega Project” surveys (besides literature from classic individual cases of “space brother” contactees in the U.S. and Italy, Latin America, Africa, and Switzerland and besides abduction research books like those of Whitley Strieber, Budd Hopkins, John Mack, Kathleen Marden, and Mary Rodwell), it seems that we are dealing with a variety of non-human intelligences (NHI) that can function in physical and non-physical ways. From these accounts we surmise that they seem to move in and out of our reality and/or manipulate it (perhaps by using non-physical realities that can change probable space-time events). Moreover, at times, the NHIs physical components appear to be completely resonant with ours while, at other times, only partially so and, every so often, even resonant with a more fundamental (and completely non-physical) level of reality. Therefore, the subject matter of UFOs and NHIs is challenging complex and requires a major shift in understanding. The question is, what will it demand of human society and can society live with it?
Due to a lack of more specifically applied, academically agreed-upon terms, ad hoc words in reference to non-physical realities (for instance, “astral” or “subtle”) are being used to describe a mind-responding ontological level that - under certain conditions - can produce physical effects, temporal anomalies, and synchronicities, approximately as described by Carl Jung, Henry Corbin, and Cynthia Bourgeault, the last two imbued of the concept of “the imaginal.” All of this implies that (even in relation to UFOS and their effects), humanity will have to become more conversant with what is often called the “psychic,” or “the world of spirits,” or “the interdimensional,” and “paranormal,” an issue that axial age-derived religions preferably pointing towards God and transcendence and modern materialist scientists have – for the most part – preferred to avoid. But the importance of the aforementioned “world of spirits” or “middle world” in the great chain of being cannot be ignored if we are to fully understand UFOs and NHIs. Moreover, humanity will have to learn to wisely integrate all of these realms as much as learn to wisely manage much more advanced “transdimensional” or “inter-ontological” technology, just as most NHI associated with UFOs seem to have done. Furthermore, the process of reconciling humanity to a multi-physical, multi-temporal, multi-dimensional cosmic community of NHIs that may have (as indicated by many contact experiencers) historically participated in our earthly existence is bound to be another major conceptual and cultural challenge.

What do we know about the way aliens communicate with us, and what are they telling us?
We asked our panel, and they responded.

Alien Communications - Thomas Minderlé
In their quest for realism, science fiction films like “Arrival” or “Contact” portray alien communications as cryptic and strange. And yet, actual abduction and contactee accounts suggest they can communicate with great fluency and eloquence. This goes along with them tending to look humanoid and in some cases being genetically or even sexually compatible with us.
So unlike fictional aliens, real ones seem to be closer to us in form and function. Maybe they are artificial creations derived from our genetics (or vice versa), or maybe we are simply cosmic relatives scattered across the stellar neighborhood by past migrations.
Regardless of their origins, they appear capable of communicating in three primary modes.
The first is the simple verbal mode, producing words vocally just as we do. Human-looking aliens, like the Nordics, can do this easily enough to pass for human when among us in public. Reptilians, there are reports of guttural vocalizations in our language that can be understood well enough. Grays and Mantids appear incapable of verbal communication.
The second mode is telepathic speech, either a faint voice that resembles your own inner stream of consciousness and can be mistaken for it, or an induced and controlled audio-hallucination that sounds like you are actually hearing it loud and clear in the room, or in the center of your skull.
Most aliens can do this as part of their psychic skillset, “talking without moving their mouths” as is commonly reported. The quality of speech differs depending on the alien. Grays are said to have telepathic speech that is more robotic, short, monotone, and stilted. Reptilians and Nordics can speak fluent English (or whatever one’s native language is) this way.
The third mode is pre-verbal or non-verbal in the form of images and contextual understanding transferred telepathically. A lot of information can be communicated swiftly this way. It seems to be the primary means of communication among aliens.
What I have experienced of the third mode can be described as follows. Imagine you have just studied and memorized a chapter in a textbook. In reviewing the chapter afterwards, you glance at the diagrams and section titles and recall the chapter without necessarily remembering the individual words comprising the text. Rather, the diagrams and titles now serve as mnemonic reminders of what you have already assimilated into your understanding, which exists as a gestalt of knowing.
Now imagine a reverse situation, where that entire gestalt can be downloaded into your mind in a few seconds with only the diagrams and titles standing out as being mentally seen or heard. So you might telepathically hear a word or phrase or see an image or symbol that is understood in context of a nonverbal and non-visual package of information transferred in parallel.
The advantage with this mode is that ideas can be communicated that don’t necessarily have verbal or visual analogues. This allows freedom from the constraints of language and the senses. As George Orwell depicted in “1984”, language shapes and confines thoughts. In bypassing language, thoughts can become boundless. In this way, higher dimensional sciences can be comprehended, developed, and “discussed” for which one would otherwise lack the right words or sense-based references.
This ability is not limited to aliens. In Robert Monroe’s work on astral projection, beings in the astral state can communicate both with words and with “rotes” or nonverbal thought-packages. Likewise, in certain esoteric mystery schools, beyond a certain point of development the disciple must switch to using telepathic nonverbal communication and symbols (occult scripts) to progress further in learning what is beyond the realm of human language.
So it is interesting that not only can aliens speak Earth languages, but with enough training we humans can communicate nonverbally like aliens do. It is just that the latter is as uncommon for us, as verbal language is for them. Still, it once again shows how aliens and humans have more in common than we might think.
Varieties of Alien Communication - Nadine Lalich
True communication is a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behavior. As human beings, we are familiar with the four main types of communication we use daily: verbal, nonverbal, written, and visual. Regarding communication between humans and non-human entities, i.e., extraterrestrials or aliens, the communication process can be quite different. It can take place while in a physical state, during an astral out-of-body experience, or in another altered state of consciousness. As a personal experiencer, I have also noted that human-ET communication is most often one-way in that they primarily serve the ETs to impart or retrieve information from a human subject. The following are some examples of human-ET communication that I have personally encountered.
When in the physical company of extraterrestrials, most of the communication is in the form of telepathic thoughts, images, or symbols imparted directly into the human brain. These communications tend to provide direction, instruction, or training of a human subject. Only on rare occasions have I experienced a true telepathic exchange when receiving a response to a question I posed.
Audio / Verbal
Spoken Language: In my experience, there has been no spoken communication observed between ETs and humans.
Clicking Sounds: Several species have been seen to exchange communication amongst themselves using a series of clicking sounds.
Audio Technology: On several occasions, I observed a type of audio technology that used liquid-filled glass tubes of various sizes to emit sounds. Each cylinder with a carved symbol on the side vibrated and emitted a tone that may have been intended to impart information through the human auditory system.
Staging: During astral contact or other altered states of consciousness, ETs have often been noted to stage visual scenarios to evoke human emotions in contactees apparently for research purposes. They may also take place during a physical abduction, but still appear to be induced within the consciousness of the human being tested and not physically staged.
Holograms. After being physically transported to a craft, abductees have commonly reported being in a large room with other humans and seeing a large, suspended hologram. Generally, the scenes depicted show the earth suffering a calamitous event and appear to be a warning to the human observers.
Visual Technology: During several experiences, I have engaged with a visual/light technology device that I believe imparts information directly to the human brain. It seems to conduct directly through the optic nerve when a human views the great variety of symbols cut into each page. Each of the symbols is covered with a clear film that emits light and may be similar to our computers. In this case, if this device is an extremely advanced computer system, it only requires the presence of a consciousness interface to function.
Downloads and Uploads
When not in the company of ETs, many abductees report experiencing what is referred to as a download or upload of information from extraterrestrials. This information can be in the form of repeating digits, symbols, and other pictures. They have been experienced in a fully waking state while sleeping or in another altered state of consciousness. There have also been reports of experiencers feeling that information from their mind is being uploaded.
A fairly common communication procedure that is solely directed by an extraterrestrial is the mind scan. During that practice, an ET will gaze directly into the eyes of a human from an inch or two from their face. It is theorized that the aliens use this technique to telepathically gain direct access to information stored in the human brain.
Facial Emotional Expression
Although there may well be reports of extraterrestrials communicating their emotions to humans, the species I have encountered have never done so through physical gestures, facial or otherwise.
ET Communications - Bill Konkolesky
I have found in my personal contact encounters that communication with extraterrestrials can be challenging. In my case, the two-fold issue stems from the beings I experience seemingly existing natively in a field of consciousness and only operating physical drone-bodies in the rare instances that they need to interact with me corporeally. Unfortunately, both of these forms have their unique limitations to effective communication with the human mind.
The one important detail that both of their forms share is the exclusive use of telepathy rather than verbal or body language. Apart from that though, these two forms couldn’t converse more differently.
In their natural environment of consciousness (during the times I am drawn out-of-body by them), the beings seemingly exist simultaneously in all of time and space and, thus, have difficulty editing messages down from an infinite perspective to my narrow human window of perception and understanding. When they communicate with me in this form, they clearly strain to get as much though my filters as possible, knowing that I’m only catching fragments of their meaning.
And, while these beings appear to swim freely in an ocean of consciousness, their small gray drone bodies display a strange behavior when walking in the physical. They seem to be mentally locked in the moment, curiously without a working awareness of the past or future.
Whenever I am lucid enough with them to ask them things like, “Where are we going?” they telepathically respond, “We’re going.” “Why are you doing this?” gets a response of, “We’re doing this.” I don’t think they’re being coy. Honestly, I believe that’s what’s going through their heads, almost as if they’re entire thought process is locked in that precise second. When condensed into physical form, they seem to paradoxically shift from eternal consciousness to one that is tightly time-locked.
The grays appear to be essentially nothing more than puppets of their consciousness form. Digging in deeper with this analogy, while a puppet master, unseen to the audience, knows the whole play, the puppet does only what it is controlled to do moment-to-moment and, if an audience member were to somehow ask the puppet a question, how could it reply? It’s not really thinking for itself and so, even though it is performing, it really has no memory of what just happened and no idea what happens next. It simply waits for the puppet master to animate it further.
Either way, communicating with these beings’ corporeal and non-corporeal forms both have their shortcomings. Until their species and ours find better common ground in conversing with and understanding each other, we have our work cut out for us.

The communications from extraterrestrials to humans, in my long-term practice of conducting regressions to experiencers' ET encounters, have been mostly words said telepathically, rather than audible clicks, pops or other sounds. Sometimes the words from the beings are so loudly and emphatically heard that the person receiving them is sure anyone near them would have heard the words as well. I will share an example from my own life. In 1988 at the start of my last week of being trained as a past life regression therapist, the trainer mentioned that those of us who were conducting regression therapy might eventually have someone come to us with complaints of having been visited and taken away by very unusual beings who were not human. These people were confused and often traumatized and wanted to know the details of what had happened that they were not consciously aware of. I had never heard of this previously and was greatly surprised, even shocked, that such things were happening to some people. More importantly I immediately heard a loud voice in my head yelling clearly and emphatically at me "Pay attention to this Barbara...you will be doing this !!" This event subsequently led to my conducting regressions and counseling with more than 2200 people who had experienced extraterrestrial encounters, leading experiencer support groups and sharing information about this phenomenon through writing books, giving lectures and interviews.
People who wake up at night with terror and awareness that unusual beings are there in their room, often 'hear' in their minds reassuring words from the beings, such as "It's alright", "We won't hurt you", 'You're coming with us...and we'll bring you back", "You are important to us", or "You are one of us". If anyone is sharing the room with that person, they do not hear these words and are usually "switched off" out of conscious awareness that anyone is there.

At a time when community sense-making and modern institutions are being challenged by a tribal resurgence of intolerant identity politics among segmented conservatives, progressives, and religious groups in different countries, will an increased level of communication with non-human intelligences (NHI) connected to the UFO phenomenon serve a benign, re-constructive, purpose? Can it inspire us to re-think democracy and the world economic order in the direction of a fairer, more compassionate, and ecologically sane expression accompanying a peaceful worldwide resolution of our cultural rifts? Can communication (the sharing of information and/or meaning between distinct entities) with NHIs inspire us to learn to live with AI, with the management of Big Data, with genetic manipulation, global warming, and other such "wicked problems" that demand effective international cooperation? Can it inform us that we can do it without weakening human self-determination? Can it inspire us to overcome excessive illusory differences across cultures and nationalities?
According to the FREE and MUFON experiencer surveys and to the work of Dr. John Mack, a large percentage of clearly contacted individuals describe an expansion in ethical values towards a kinder, more inclusive identity, universalism, and practical spirituality more adequate for the planet and human reconciliation. I believe that they apparently attained a self-transformative level of communication. But, can the ethical changes undergone by these deeply and personally 'contacted' individuals translate into word-wide value shifts good for a greater appreciation of our connection to life, or will the sense of egoic separation in our 'non-awakened" human nature stubbornly reassert itself?
It seems that most substantial human change is not motivated by pondering or reflection but by a personal crisis or by technological developments that force adaptations. Thus, unless communication with NHIs is sufficient to be socially constitutive, perhaps second-hand information received by others during their direct contacts with NHIs will be insufficient for the rest of humanity to rise to an occasion calling for the acquisition of a deeper, global integrative ethical stage of relatedness or connectedness. However, disclosure may be an important, necessary factor along with others that challenge us.
Allegedly, NHIs have overcome organizing their societies under the psychological sense of separation, coinciding with being seriously limited to scarcity, danger, and greater physical space-time limitations. Generally speaking, they would have probably organized their societies under a greater understanding of meaningful connections. Communicating with them and knowing about them may arouse in us a need to think "outside the box." To stop destroying the world and invent a more connected, respectful way of life, communicating with NHIs and learning about their messages would – at least - have to be as effective as the socialization processes we normally experience within familial, religious, social media, and other value-bestowing groups. They would have to be taken seriously to affect our value formation.
