Rutkowski is well equipped to write this book. As the country’s leading researcher and investigator of UFOs, he has extensive experience working in the field and in the study. By profession he is an astronomer and past president of the Winnipeg Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada; by training he is a writer and communicator. In 1989, he launched the first of his annual tabulations of the previous year’s UFO sightings province by province. These statistical accounts of UFO activity in Canada are reported by the media across Canada and are regarded as models of their kind outside the country." FOREWORD by John Robert Colombo
"Over the years, I’ve been called a UFO investigator or a UFO researcher. Both are misnomers. This is because I don’t actually investigate UFOs. Instead, I talk with people who say they have had UFO experiences. There is a big difference." Chris A. Rutkowski
STEFAN MICHALAK case
"One of the most intriguing Canadian UFO cases is that of Stefan Michalak. He returned home from a prospecting expedition with serious ill effects that he claimed were a result of an extraordinary UFO encounter".
"Michalak was physically injured, and over the next few years was examined and treated by a number of physicians in both Canada and the United States. Radioactive pieces of metal were found at the site, and Michalak’s chest displayed a bizarre pattern of round burns which later left deep scar tissue."
“They” were alien beings from other planets, as she soon found out. They had decided to help her during her time of need because they knew she was “right” for their work on Earth. What work this was, exactly, she was unsure. But help her they did. With their support, Emily overcame her depression and began functioning again in society. She even became interested in news events and in other subjects she had always avoided."

"Two large dark-coloured eyes Xenology is the study of all aspects of life, intelligence, and civilization indigenous to environments other than Earth.
"Two large dark-coloured eyes were regarding me steadfastly. The mass that framed them, the head of the thing, it was rounded, and had, one might say, a face. There was a mouth under the eyes, the lipless brim of which quivered and panted, and dropped saliva. The whole creature heaved and pulsated convulsively. A lank tentacular appendage gripped the edge of the cylinder, another swayed in the air. Those who have never seen a living Martian can scarcely imagine the strange horror of its appearance... -- H. G. Wells, in The War of the Worlds (1898)
"The conditions of life are indeed narrow, special, restricted; intelligent, organic life must, relatively speaking, be a rarity in the universe, but we lack the information that would enable us to affirm with any confidence that such life is only to be found upon this world of ours. Heavy as the odds are against any particular world being an inhabited one, yet when the limitless extent of space is considered, and the innumerable numbers of stars and systems of stars, it seems but reasonable to conclude that though inhabited worlds are relatively rare, the absolute number of them may be considerable." -- E. Walter Maunder, in Are the Planets Inhabited? (1913)
"It’s moving.. . .Heading for us. Just what we’d do if a strange spaceship appeared in our hunting grounds. Friendly? Maybe. We’re going to try to contact them. We have to. But I suspect this is the end of the expedition. Thank God for the blasters...!" -- from "First Contact" by Murray Leinster (1945)
"Extraterrestrial life is truly an idea whose time has come." -- Dr. Carl Sagan, in The Cosmic Connection (1973)
"For three years, twelve hours a day, five days a week, approximately ten months of each year, I lived the life of an extraterrestrial. I began to study human behavior from an alien point of view. I was becoming alienated, and I didn’t realize it." -- Leonard Nimoy (1975)
"Once, just once, I’d like to land somewhere and say: Behold! I am the Archangel Gabriel!" -- Dr. Leonard McCoy, in the original-series Star Trek episode "Bread and Circuses"
"The Gowachin: the frog people of Tandaloor whose concept of Law is the strangest in the ConSentiency. To them, ritual (form) is the foundation upon which Law stands, but Law must change to meet each new condition. They do not even trust their own Law, believing that even the most high-minded people will use legalisms for their own benefit. The Courtarena where they try their cases can be a scene of carnage. The losing Legum (lawyer) forfeits his life. Any jurist or client who makes a misstep can be dispatched. This is a situation which makes for infrequent trials and memorable court performances." -- Frank Herbert, 3026 on The Dosadi Experiment (1977)
This is the best book I've found on conceptualizing human-alien interactions. Nevertheless, a human conceptualization. I'm very curious about the movie Arrival, about to hit screens ...and minds.
The book blends science and science-fiction in an extraordinary way. Most of the great names of Sci-Fi are quoted. Yet, the [book] enterprise is scientific, to the utmost.
"There seems to be consensus among SF writers, says anthologist Donald Wollheim, that the stages of future history are likely to include the colonization of other star systems and the formation of a human galactic empire, which might collapse and be reborn."
At the end of the book you may find a useful APPENDIX on "What To Do If You Encounter Alien Beings or Their Craft (Surprise Contact Scenario)"; be it a spacecraft or aliens, you should know what to do/think/assume; even after the event.
The book offers tremendous possibilities concerning the concept of life itself; today that I read Silicon life* may be possible, one surely won't escape wondering about other life forms and evolution (s).

When you read James Casbolt (on “cloned humans”) or Laura Eisenhower (the military involvement in the creation of “hybrids”, or the weather modification and mind control technologies used against mankind) versions of the aliens, you easily find them malevolent.
Even the version by Professor David Jacobs regarding abductions (“The Threat: The Secret Agenda What the Aliens Really Want and How They Plan to Get It”) will get you into a sordid picture of these so-called aliens.
Yet, with this book of Dolores Cannon you‘ll get another picture*: the benevolent, positive one. I reckon a positive view also with Bridget Nielsen (check on Hybrid Human Alien Children).
She [Dolores] didn’t start with UFO’s. Her work began with hypnosis for relaxation of a patient with eating disorders; then the hypnosis gave her entry into past lives. Regression.
Only in 1985, she was introduced by Mildred Higgins and Lucius Farish into the UFO phenomena, and especially, in her debut using hypnotic regression in cases of abduction.
She affirms her distinct approach: while some stopped at the physical traces and abduction per se; and still others focused on the genetic manipulation some aliens may be involved, Dolores went further.
She thinks these aliens are benevolent: they’re under a “higher authority”….their plan “was fashioned for our world eons before the first human appeared”.
They are doing this (abductions….) NOT for their purposes but for OURS.
Save some mavericks (aliens) who are negative , she admits, ….her data led her to believe that their “examinations “ and experimentation with the human race are for our good: they are, sort of, "keeping the garden", seeding planet earth, taking care of “our evolution”. It’s a generational work.
She says, nevertheless, in the history of mankind, some anomaly might have occurred: (maybe) a meteor had introduced organisms foreign to our planet. The custodians would prepare us to live on other planets. She believes these custodians have been “carefully influencing” the development of our brains.
The so much talked about “gene manipulation” is meant, according to Dolores , for OUR PROTECTION, OUR PRESERVATION AND SURVIVAL.
Her views seem really different from other researchers; whereas some talk about “missing time", she speaks about “condensed or distorted time”; “events take place in far less time than it would normally take”.
She believes these Custodians have evolved to the point where they are “pure energy”, no longer requiring physical bodies.
He surely may have a point (or many) in his approach to themes like telekinesis, remote viewing, precognition, clairvoyance (and other "siddhis", acc
He surely may have a point (or many) in his approach to themes like telekinesis, remote viewing, precognition, clairvoyance (and other "siddhis", according to the Sanskrit language).
For many years a “materialistic” science has prevented these phenomena from being properly addressed. At stake: it’s the “scientific method” of “1845” which limits the reality to a physical reality. Obviously, Ingo’s approach admits “multiple dimensions”; and like the old India's traditions: reality has several levels (the realm of desire, the mind,…); the physical one, being just one of them.
He praises Sanskrit language for being an ”experiential” language, unlike English ("a 200 year old vocabulary” that made us “too much trapped in the past”).
Yet science is “changing”. It's been uncovered “more stuff”, well beyond matter: “dark energy”, “dark matter” etc.
Ingo points to the fact that there are many experienced things that one cannot prove they happened; also, there are other experiences you cannot take into a lab.
The book has got three parts. The first one reports his involvement in the PSI research. Noteworthy and curious I’ve found his initiative of introducing “adventure and enjoyment” in research, with the Jupiter Experiment. Though laughable (“a psychic, mind-trip to Jupiter”! “get there psychically before NASA") an idea, he managed to succeed his remote viewing of a planet, then not so well known in its features.
With proper controls in place, that Saturday of 1973, the raw material obtained was “one page of sketches” and “two and half pages of verbal observations”.
Almost incredible, that in the years ahead several space missions confirmed what was obtained by remote viewing; namely, these features of Jupiter: a hydrogen mantle, tornados and storm winds, high infrared reading, cloud color, temperature inversion, the dominant orange color…. How he did it, it’s not in the book.
The part two concentrates on the Moon; its hollowness, namely. As to the UFO phenomenon, Ingo believes that “there are authentic reports”.
Part three approaches the topic of Telepathy, from the Earth side and from Space side.
Elsewhere I’ve watched Ingo suggesting that remote viewing can be trained.

"We have been invaded. It is not an occupation but it is an invasion. At present we can do little or nothing to stop it.”
David Jacobs in Secret Life: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions (1992)
“It is disturbing that the aliens and hybrids are primarily concerned with the Earth and not with human beings.”
David Jacobs in The Threat ...(1998)
In 2013, in Oxford, Doctor David Jacobs gave a conference on the theme “Psychology and Alien abduction”; starting with the recognition that he was not a psychologist (rather, a historian), he pondered at length on the limits of the methodology used to study the object at stake: alien abduction. To begin with hypnosis itself, he proceeded into the human psychological apparatus stating: “memory is inaccurate”, “memory is unreliable”, “people lie”, “people confabulate” (“make things up”) , “most US courts don’t accept testimony derived from hypnosis”, etc, etc….adding “the evidence is weak”.
At the top of the explanations for the phenomenon he put psychologists “reasonable explanations” (1): childhood sexual abuse; and then the list continued: (2) sleep paralysis; (3) popular cultural osmosis; (4) hypnotic suggestion; and so on.
This book is a methodology-at-stake still, an abundant collection (and discussion) of cases, but also a leap into the unknown: what are the real intentions of the aliens? What are they up to?
Being a historian, Doctor Jacobs found himself doing a rather challenging task of seeing into the future: he called it “the uncomfortable position”, the future divination.
His points of departure are these facts: since 1975 the number of reports increased; the data gathered became huge. Nonetheless, certain conclusions were apparent: “the contact has already been occurred-…on Alien’s term and in secret”; “the UFO’s behaved as if they wanted to keep their distance from us”.
In a brief historical perspective we had: 1957 Antonio Villas Boas case in Brazil; the fishing-men case of Pascagoula in 1973; the Travis Walton 1975 case…; but maybe most puzzling for Jacobs, was his interview with Betty Hill (1961 abduction) in 1976 and her revelation (kept secret that far) that the aliens had collected semen from her husband Barney.
Still relevant: in 1993 UFO researcher Karla Turner had called the attention for the fact that some abductees were claiming the role of the American military in cooperation with the aliens, in the abduction. Budd Hopkins had already pointed the interest of the aliens in the reproductive area; and more recently “they were pairing young abductees for long term relationships”.
Doctor Jacobs was for some time a reluctant Ufologist as to the use of hypnosis. It was his contact with Budd Hopkins (and Hynek) that made him learn and apply the technique. “Anybody can do it”; trouble begins when “asking the right questions at the right time”. He performed his first hypnotic regression in 1986. By 1992 he had performed more than 300.
And now the curious data he collected; out of 700 abduction cases:
-150, involved egg-taking procedures
-400, physical examinations
-375, mind scans
-180, baby and toddler contact.
Jacobs points to the Hopkins data and his own: the aliens were “ova harvesting” and doing “fetal extraction”. They were really engaged in a “Breeding program”; their agenda. Setting “extra uterine gestational units”, justified the collection of sperm and egg; truly, the production of “hybrids”.

"I...was most impressed by the Betty and Barney Hill case when it was first introduced in the 1960's (The Interrupted Journey).This was the first so-called "abduction" case. There were many things in that report that convinced me that the Hills had a true experience. For example the apparent telepathic communication and the non-hostile intent of the aliens , seemed to me perfectly plausible".
Dolores Cannon in "The Custodians"
Barney under hypnosis: "He's a Nazi...his eyes are slanted...those eyes...I feel like a rabbit...it's the cat in Alice in Wonderland..."
Nuclear Physicist Stanton Friedman :"They [aliens] don't understand how Barney's teeth come out and hers don't" Hahah (Barney had dentures)
Paul Devereux "...driving hours upon hours...they go into trance...miraculously floating into a spaceship ...out of the body experience...lucid dreaming experience...,sleep disorders that fit in absolute detail" (the abductee description)
"Tectonic Strain Theory (Michael) Persinger [a cognitive neuroscience researcher] has also come to public attention due to his 1975 Tectonic Strain Theory (TST) of how geophysical variables may correlate with sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) or Marian apparitions. Persinger argued that strain within the Earth's crust near seismic faults produces intense electromagnetic (EM) fields, creating bodies of light that some interpret as glowing UFOs or The Virgin Mary. Alternatively, he argued that the EM fields generate hallucinations in the temporal lobe, based on images from popular culture, of alien craft, beings, communications, or creatures". From Wiki
This is one of earliest* reported cases of abduction. I would highlight two, at least, important features (common to many other abduction cases); they’re the “missing time”** and the “intensity of the emotions” associated with the encounter; the latter obtained via hypnotic regression. In fact, the title of the book is the Interrupted journey: two lost hours aboard a flying saucer.
Basically, the story told in the book involves a couple: a white woman and a black man who, back in September 19th, 1961, are travelling from Canada (border) to their home in Portsmouth, USA.
He’s a bright civil-rights activist and post officer, called Barney; she’s a social worker, by the name of Betty; her true name being Eunice.
They had had the warning of an upcoming hurricane while heading south. After the restaurant break for a meal, they left the place at around 10:05 p. m. . While on the way home she was the first one to spot “another star” (above a known planet).
Soon they both concluded that the star was moving: “the object would disappear behind the trees”. They will report: “strange sounds” ….and “missing time”...at 11 p.m. when passing by the “Cannon mountain”; the "star" had entered a “crazy course”. ::: Upon arriving they get to this conclusion: the trip took 2 hours longer than expected. Past few days, Betty started having nightmares of the couple being taken aboard a spacecraft and "medically examined".
In December 1963 they sought help from Doctor Benjamin Simon, because Betty had developed health problems (ulcers namely).
The book gives detailed accounts of the sessions the couple went through. Of special (somewhat terrifying) interest are the examinations they were subjected to, by aliens. Some of these examinations left physical marks in the body of Barney.
Betty had access to maps that led to the identification of the place in the galaxy where from these aliens came.
The couple was separated while in the hypnotic sessions; thereafter “amnesia” was induced.
Someone commented that the emotional [fear and terror] intensity reported was "greater" than any of the war traumas reported by military people.
The movie based in the book,The UFO Incident by Richard A. Colla (1975),is fairly good, regarding the story.
--- *Maybe the earliest is the case of Antonio Villas Boas in Brazil, 1957.

"I was skeptical of veteran UFO researcher Ray Fowler's 1979 study of abductee Betty Andreasson. The case demonstrated that the aliens could mentally control people from a distance: They "switched off"-rendered unconscious or immobile -people who were in Andreasson's house while they abducted her and her daughter.(...) But I remained doubtful and believed that the images she saw, and perhaps the entire abduction, were generated from her mind"
David Jacobs, in "The Threat"
For those venturing in Ufology I would recommend the study of at least 4 cases I find full of lessons (also questions) on the object at stake: UFOs and aliens.
The cases , which have an “internal consistency” , are (1) Roswell, 1947*; (2) the Andreasson case, 1967; (3) the Allagash incident, 1976**; and (4) the Zimbabwe (Harare) 62 school-kids who watched 2 “beings” and a spacecraft in 1994.
I take the latter case and the words of psychiatrist John Mack who flew two months later to the place and interviewed the kids and parents. He concluded that they were “not delusional” and were “people of sound mind” ; as to the UFO phenomenon, Mack was saying: “not dreams”, “not hallucinations”, nor “psychosis” or “schizophrenia”.
The Andreasson case derives its consistency from the fact that it is a collective --family-- experience, though the main subject remains Mrs Betty Andreasson. Moreover, her account remained reliable, for years.
She was at her kitchen back in January 25th , 1967, in South Ashburnham, Massachusetts; her family in the living room watching TV. Then a “reddish-orange” light was seen “flashing” through the kitchen; the (house) lights went out.
Her father was the first one spotting the 5 humanoid-aliens that entered the house. But her father didn’t “want to get involved”; those five “passed through the door”.
Soon Betty will be interacting with these people, yet her family will get in a “state of suspended animation”.
Betty will communicate telepathically with the leader of those 5, one who is 5 feet tall; the others being 4 feet tall. They had “large black eyes” and "bulbous" heads.
The leader “told” Betty he wanted “knowledge tried by fire”. Betty was recalling the Bible passage on “entertaining strangers”, so things got smoother; she even experienced a “feeling of love”.
She handed a Bible to the leader, and then he replicated the issue in 3 different books. […]
Betty will be taken off her home, and ushered in a spacecraft where she’ll go through a thorough “examination”.
Especially in the section called ”The Implant”, the book offers a detailed account of these “examinations”, providing drawings made by Betty. Midst the drawings you can read the interrogations made by investigator Joe Santangelo, as well as the questions and answers obtained by Fred and Beryl Max through the use of hypnotic regression.
LT Larry Fawcett ,after being 9 months with Betty and husband, said: "They're telling the truth"; they are "very sincere people".

I cannot stop wondering how he did it, the Brazilian author, Aladino Felix, back in the fifties; of the 20th century.
Maybe he got on his hands a Physics compendium plus one of Chemistry and just dared imagining having a conversation with this ET coming from the satellites of Jupiter. Maybe.
Maybe not, because the level of knowledge involved in the book is a bit "ahead". A bit? maybe too far ahead ...of those times.
And yet the book is timely, for me, at least. Today that I've just seen these news of the Japanese drone with radioactive material being caught, supposedly targeting the Japanese PM, Abe...*

Well, Kraspedon** says he had these meetings with a Jupiterean being (well -dressed) in four places; (1) inside the flying saucer (2) at his home (3) in São Paulo main square and (4) at the Roosevelt station in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In some of these encounters a science-man was present too, but the author won't reveal his identity.
In the very introduction (of 1957) the author indicates the content of the book is about "events" that were "kept secret since 1952". The no-name, erudite ET was first met at Kraspedon home; he just had knocked the door. His mission was to warn on the nuclear peril.
"We're all diminutive", at the place he came from; he said he lived sometimes in Ganymede, sometimes in Io. "On my planet names are just a picture".
The Jupiterean was familiar with the Bible's (he could cite the "Bereshith bara Elohim") Hebrew as well as the English and Greek languages.
The encounters were in the form of question-answer dialogues. So, many topics are approached; but most relevant, in my view, is the tremendous amount of scientific knowledge this "parson" reveals and demonstrates. Pages upon pages of demonstrations, of proofs of a higher knowledge which touches on God,mass,energy, gravitation, the electron, gamma rays,light,astro-navigation....
There are chapters on how to overcome gravity; demonstrations on how the moon keeps its orbit and the light-speed being exceeded by other rays (the "chemical rays"); and on the Olaf Roemer experiment; and some revolutionary chemical data like this one: that some chemical elements can produce proteins and certain diseases healed. Also on the bright future for robots and the "waste-fuel" society questioned. Near the end, you'll get to know which are the inhabited planets of the solar system.
"God is an isotropic line parallel to itself and vibrating on itself at right angles, he's like a system of axes in which the point of intersection of the lines is isotropic"
Certain predictions caught my attention,like this one: the solar system to have ("soon") another sun (called the "sun of justice"); with the following consequences: some planets will change their orbits, Pluto will be ejected, Earth to be relocated near the asteroid belt (between Mars and Jupiter). It will be "a binary system" of suns; apparently, the coming true of a Nostradamus prophecy:
La grande estoile par sept jours bruslera Nuee fera deux soleils apparoir
[The great star will burn on seven days and cloud will make two suns appear]
The book ends with a sort of challenge for man to choose between life or death. The Jupiterean said at the very beginning: "they don't attack science" BUT in the end he added:"do not seek the salvation of your soul through science".
"Unhappily, my friend, earth is in the hands of raving lunatics".
The last chapter describes with great minutiae the effects of radioactivity.
(Takahama nuclear power plant in Takahama town)
Better read it as science-fiction; maybe not; maybe as science with some fiction; but keep your eyes,daily if possible, on the one-sun. Don't double it. ----
