Close Encounters



CLOSE ENCOUNTERS


Adamski & Co.

George Adamski (see left) was not the first of the modern contactees, although he was undoubtedly the most famous.
Adamski's contacts began in 1952, whereas Howard Menger's first contact was in 1932, at the time when Hitler was on his way to power in Germany.
Menger (see right) was only ten when he made his first contact, which is unusual in itself.






Even Joseph Smith (see right) was in his teens at the time of his first contact, in the forests of Vermont, with two shining entities whom he took to be God the Father and God the Son.


Menger made contact with a beautiful woman, in a wood near his home in New Jersey.
She told him of an important mission that he would have in the future and promised him that he would be visited by 'her people' on numerous occasions in the future,
Despite this rather strange childhood experience, Menger apparently grew up quite normally, serving in the American Army during the War in the Pacific. During his period of service he was contacted by entities on a number of occasions, although such visits never came to the attention of his fellow GIs or his superiors.
In 1945 Menger left the Army and worked as a self employed sign writer, supporting his wife and young son.
As time went by the number and duration of his contacts increased, and he found himself involved in helping alien entities, whom he believed to be Venusians, to establish themselves on Earth, incognito.
In 1956 he attempted to photograph one of the 'saucers' which the aliens were supposed to use when travelling to the Earth.
The pictures were of a disappointingly poor quality, which was explained by the Venusians as being due to radiation from the ships propulsion units.
During this time Menger met entities who claimed to come from Saturn and Mars.
All these entities could pass quite easily as normal inhabitants of Earth. As a reward for the help and assistance that Menger had given to the 'space people' he was invited aboard one of their 'spacecraft' and given a trip round the solar system during which he visited 'Saturn', 'Mars' and 'Venus'.
Not surprisingly, Menger wrote a book describing his experiences.
In it he noted the remarkable longevity of the entities whom he contacted and points to the fact that this was achieved by a diet which consisted entirely of organic vegetable products.
This concern about food, and in particular, vegetarianism, is to be found in the teachings of Smith, Blavatsky, Gurdjieff, Crowley, Hitler and other prominent Nazis, along with current New Age disciples and, of course, almost all contactees and abductees.

Another significant contactee, who pre-dates Adamski was Arthur Henry Matthews.
Matthews was a wealthy friend of the enigmatic scientist, Nikola Tesla. In 1941 Matthews was living at his four-hundred acre country property just outside Quebec, in Canada.
One night he met two entities who were similar to those who contacted Howard Menger.
They also claimed to be from Venus and asked to see the work Matthews was engaged on with regard to an invention which Tesla had bequeathed to him on his death (the Teslascope - an Extraterrestrial Radio Transmitter).
Satisfied with Matthew's work, they took him to their craft which he was allowed to inspect. Again longevity and a vegetarian diet were emphasised.
After this initial contact, Matthews was visited by 'Venusian' entities on a number of other occasions, spanning a period of twenty years, and on one of these occasions was taken on a trip to 'Mars'.
Adamski, himself, was born in Poland in 1891.
When he was just two years old his family emigrated to America to escape the crushing poverty and political uncertainty.
As a young man he spent some years in the American Army although little is known of the details of his early life.
By 1944 he was calling himself 'Professor' Adamski and lecturing on Eastern Religions.


He and a group of followers had set up a small colony near Mount Palomar, in California; site of the giant two-hundred inch reflecting telescope.
There they ran a tourist's café and Adamski indulged in his hobby of amateur astronomy with his six inch Newtonian reflector.

In 1946 Adamski observed his first UFO through his telescope (see left below), but it was not until 1952 that he was able to successfully take his first photograph of a UFO through his telescope (see right).


In that same year he experienced his first contact with alien entities.
Again they identified themselves a 'Venusians' and appeared to be humanoid, looking very similar to Nordic earthmen.
Adamski was able to communicate at a rather deeper level than some of the other early contactees and soon established that these entities believed in a Supreme Being and in life after death.


Like many messages in the fifties and sixties from alien entities, Adamski's entities were concerned about nuclear testing and the threat of nuclear war.
At the end of Adamski's initial meeting the visiting entity asked for one of Adamski's photographic plates, which he promised to return.
Once the alien 'craft' had left, Adamski took a cast of the alien's footprint as evidence of the meeting.
The footprint, along with the returned photographic plate bore symbols or glyphs which bear a striking resemblance to the transcribed examples of Reformed Egyptian which were taken from the Moroni Plates of 1829 (see right).
After his initial meeting Adamski met 'Venusians' on numerous occasions in Los Angeles, rather in the same manner as Howard Menger.
The aliens appeared in conventional business suites and attracted little or no attention from passers-by, who were unaware of their origins.


Later Adamski was taken to a 'Mother Ship' in orbit above the Earth.
Here like Menger and others, he met similar entities from Saturn, Mars and, of course, Venus.
On another occasion he was taken on a visit to the dark side of the Moon, which he was assured was inhabited.
Once again the entities were long lived and vegetarians.
Despite the bizarre nature of many of Adamski's pronouncements, he quickly developed a larger following than any of the other contactees of the time, and in 1959 his disciples were able to raise sufficient funds to finance a world tour. In the process of the tour Adamski was able to visit New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, Switzerland, Italy and Holland, where he was granted an audience with Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard.

In 1965 John Reeves was contacted by alien entities who not only left 'Adamski' type footprints, in this case leaving a trail stretching at least a quarter of a mile, but also fragments of Titanium, a metal often associated with UFO encounters.

John Reeves lived near Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida, and his first encounter took place on March 2nd 1965, while he was walking in a near by woods.
He saw a landed UFO and hid in the bushes.
He observed an entity walking around and came within 15 feet of where Reeves was hiding.
The entity then looked in his direction, take something from his left side, lifted it to his chin and then there was a flash.
Reeves guessed he had his photo taken.
The entity took another before walking back to the craft and climbed inside.
Reeves described the ‘Robot’ as follows:-
He was about five foot tall. He wore a grey-silver suit, some kind of a canvas suit, and on his head he had a glass dome, sitting right up on top of his shoulders, and I could see right inside that… The skin was a very dark skin… But his eyes were further apart than a human being. His nose and mouth was the same as ours, but the chin was a little bit pointy. He had some kind of a thing up over his head, something very thin that went over the top of his head to cover his hair. It came down past his ears and you could see his eyebrows. I called him Robot because he is from outer space, but he was a human being just the same as we are.”
In addition there was 'Martian' writing which proved to be very similar to Adamski's 'Venusian' script and Smith's Reformed Egyptian.
After the craft had taken off, Reeves found two pieces of folded paper like tissue paper where the craft had stood.
They bore strange writing like ‘Oriental writings or shorthand writing’.
This was later deciphered, and it read: “Planet Mars- Are you coming home soon- We miss you very much- Why did you stay away too long’.

There is an enigmatic twist to Reeve's story, which was provided by a Dr. Berthold Eric Schwartz, who reported in 1957, (eight years before Reeves had his alien contact), that a nine year old girl had received thirteen identical symbols in the precise order in which they were found in Reeve's communication, whilst she was undergoing an experience of automatic writing.
This connection between apparent UFO contacts and psychic phenomena is extremely significant, as shall be subsequently shown.
The connection with Joseph Smith and Mormonism, through 'space writing' is also noteworthy, but equally the fact that so many space entities are described as being almost identical in appearance to Joseph Smith's Moroni (see left) should also give cause for comment.
There is, in addition, one other significant connection between Smith and recent experiences involving UFOs and alien entities.

This connection has its origins in December of 1973 when a French racing-car journalist called Claude Vorilhon was contacted by entities who emerged from a 'space craft' which landed close to an extinct volcano near Clermont-Ferrand, in France.
The entities explained that they came from 'far away' and knew all the languages of the Earth.
They asked Vorilhon to obtain a Bible and a note-pad and then proceeded to describe their apparent involvement in the history of both the Old and the New Testaments.
They appointed Vorilhon, who up till then had no interest in either religion or outer space, as their representative on Earth, and required him to raise money in order to establish a centre from which their philosophy could be propagated.
Vorilhon successfully carried out their requests, setting up branches of what he called the 'Raelian Movement' in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada and Britain.
One of the main ideas of the movement is the espousal of a doctrine of free love, which is remarkably similar to Joseph Smith's concept of Celestial Marriage.



A strange similarity exists between the Raelian Emblem - presumably chosen by the aliens (see left), and the emblem of the Thule Gesellschaft (see right) - which also had links to aliens and UFOs, - in that both organisations use a form a swastika.
When asked their name, the entities who contacted Vorilhon described themselves as the 'Elohim' (see right).
It should be noted that the name Elohim was given by Joseph Smith to the Demiurge from Kolob who was responsible, according to Smith, for creating human life on Earth.
Was the contact with Vorilhon perhaps an updated and modernised re-run of the contact made by 'Moroni'?
If it was it must prompt a reconsideration of many other accounts by contactees of alien entities.
As time passed, the Adamski case resurfaced during the same year as the Reeves case and some years before the appearance of the Elohim.


This new contact occurred in England, rather than America, and involved a certain E A Bryant, a retired prison officer, who lived at Scoriton on Dartmoor, in the county of Devon.
On the 24th April, 1965, at about five thirty pm, Bryant encountered a UFO whilst walking on the moor.
The craft hovered near him and three humanoid figures emerged.
They informed Bryant that they came from 'Venus', and one of the entities identified himself as 'Yamski'.
They assured Bryant that they would return in a short while, with proof of 'Mantel'.
Some time later some metal fragments, possibly from an aircraft, were discovered at the same location.
Bryant was not familiar with the cases relating to either Adamski, who had died on the 23rd April, 1965, or Mantel, and therefore may well have misheard Adamski as 'Yamski'.


As for Mantel, Bryant was also unaware that Captain Thomas Mantel (see right), of the United States Air Force had died when his plane mysteriously disintegrated, in 1948, over Godman Air Force Base, Fort Knox, Kentucky, whilst he chasing a UFO.

If the entity involved in this encounter with Bryant was Adamski, then the incident could be of immense significance, in that it associates certain UFO sightings, strongly, with spiritualist phenomena, in that Adamski was communicating after his death; and at the same time, it links up with the mysterious statement made by an alien entity to Whitley Strieber (see left), during his abduction, that 'aliens' 'recycle souls'.
As time went on the entities whom contactees encountered no longer claimed to be from our Solar system.
Perhaps the evidence which the moon landings and space probes to Venus and Mars had provided made the claims of 'Venusians' and 'Martians' seem somewhat untenable.
Now alien entities claimed to come from such unlikely places as 'Clarion'; which is, apparently, a planet in our Solar System which is permanently, and probably conveniently, always hidden by our Moon; or the planet Aenstria, or the Galaxy of Coma Berenices, which is not, in fact, a galaxy but rather a constellation.

Another unknown planet was Lanulos, apparently the home of an entity who called himself 'Indrid Cold'. 'Cold' first introduced himself to Woodrow Derenberger (see left) one evening in November, in 1966.
Derenberger was driving in his van near Parkersberg in West Virginia when he came across an 'alien craft' parked in the middle of the free-way.
Derenberger pulled up on the hard shoulder and was approached by a humanoid entity, who looked to all intents and purpose like an ordinary person.
He gave his name and explained that he came from the 'planet' Lanulos. Significantly, like Adamski and many other contactees Derenberger received his communications from Cold telepathically.
Cold made light and rather pointless conversation with Derenberger, for about ten minutes, and then, rather strangely, suggested that Derenberger report the matter to the local police.
Like most contactees Derenberger had practically no previous knowledge of, or interest in UFOs.
Unsure as to what was going on, he therefore decided to go to the police as Cold had suggested, and found, to his surprise, that they were prepared to give him a reasonable hearing in view of the fact that there had been numerous UFO sightings and close encounters in the area over the previous twenty-four hours.
Derenberger's contact with Cold continued, and the following day Cold, whilst not appearing physically, gave Derenberger a considerable amount of information, telepathically, about his home 'planet' and his family, which consisted of his wife, two sons and a baby daughter.
The 'planet' Lanulos, it appears, was in the galaxy of 'Ganymede'; a statement which, typically, is completely meaningless.
As is the case with many contactees, Derenberger's life was totally disrupted by his contact with alien entities.
Apart from the inevitable psychological disorientation caused by his belief that he had been contacted by 'spacemen', there was also the inevitable social disruption which affected both Derenberger and his family once the details of his encounter had been made public knowledge. Derenberger was a salesman and he soon discovered that his notoriety as a contactee was not good for business.
His children were bullied at school and, because his business was failing, he soon found that he was short of money.
The family moved to central Cleveland, but Cold soon followed Derenberger.
Cold would either contact Derenberger as a drove along some isolated free-way or would simply be waiting at Derenberger's back door when he arrived home in the evening.
At the same time Derenberger and his friends began to receive a succession of strange 'phone calls consisting of odd electronic noises, along with visits by mysterious and threatening 'men in black'.
These two phenomena are strongly associated with UFO contacts and sightings.
The UFO phenomena appears to express itself most commonly through electro-magnetic phenomena which range from causing the electrical systems of cars to cut out, to interference with radios and televisions and the disruption of phone systems.
At the extreme end of the range, sightings of UFOs have been connected with extensive disruptions of the electrical power grid, involving large scale power failures, particularly in America.


Reinforcing the theme of electro-magnetic phenomena, many contactees and abductees who have been shown round the interior of alien 'space craft' (see left), or who have been taken on 'space flights', have been told by their hosts that their ships are powered by electro-magnetic forces, and in some cases, including that of Strieber, contactees have been given plans of electro-magnetic 'motors' (see right).
Electromagnetic disruption, whilst being a nuisance, is not usually threatening.
The UFO phenomena, however, appears to be able to interfere with phone systems in such a way that un-traceable, anonymous and threatening 'phone calls are often received by individuals who have reported siting UFOs, or have reported contacts with alien entities.


Equally 'men in black' (see left) are often reported to have visited contactees, sometimes warning them not to 'go public' about their experiences, but in many other cases, simply interviewing contactees and their associates in a somewhat odd manner. The 'men in black' or MIBs are an intriguing phenomena, as they often arrive in old cars that look and even smell 'brand new'; often large black Cadillacs (see right); wearing 'brand new' but slightly out of date clothes, and behaving in an odd, often socially inept manner.
They usually state that they represent a particular Government agency or newspaper, but when enquiries are made they are unknown and un-traceable.
These then were some of the problems that beset 'Woody' Derenberger, despite his attempts to lead a normal, quiet life.


Indrid Cold (see left) continued to contact him and, not surprisingly, 'Woody' ended up taking the inevitable flight to the Moon combined with a trip round the Solar System in the entity's 'spacecraft', before eventually flying to Cold's home 'planet' of Lanulos (see right).
There, he was entertained at Indrid Cold's luxurious home, where he discovered, to his surprise, that the people of Lanulos were nudists.
Along with his interplanetary flights Derenberger also produced, like most other contactees, a book which he entitled, rather unimaginatively, 'Visitors from Lanulos'.
Derenberger's story may seem to be just another contactee fantasy were it not for the events which occurred on December 10th, 1967.
On that date a young college student, from Adelphi, Maryland, called Tom, was driving home along Interstate Highway 70 just outside Washington DC, when he encountered a large white object on the road ahead.
Being curious, Tom pulled up and saw two figures standing outside the large spherical object. The two 'entities were fairly ordinary looking, and were dressed in blue overalls.
One of the entities approached Tom and explained that his name was Vadig. After a few minutes of rather mundane and pointless conversation, Vadig and his companion left with the cryptic farewell,'see you in time'.
On arriving at the campus, Tom told his three room-mates about his encounter, but as they were not prepared to take him seriously, Tom told no one else.
Tom had a part time job as a waiter, which helped him to pay his college fees. He had not mentioned this to Vadig, during their brief conversation and he was therefore surprised and shocked when at the beginning of February 1968, Vadig entered the restaurant where he worked.
On this occasion Vadig was wearing a lounge suit and dark overcoat.
Vadig asked Tom to meet him the following Sunday and then left, after drinking a cup of coffee. After work, the next Sunday, Tom was picked up by Vadig, who was driving a large black Buick. It was an old model but Tom recalled that it looked and smelled brand new.
After a thirty minute drive they arrived at a remote spot where Vadig had 'parked' his space craft.
Tom was placed in a small grey circular room, equipped with a seat and a video screen.
The screen showed the earth receding to a tiny speck as the 'craft' apparently travelled through space.
Eventually another 'planet' appeared on the screen and the 'craft' landed with a thump.
Tom rejoined Vadig who proudly announced that the planet was Lanulos.
After a brief tour of the 'nudist planet', Tom returned home in the same manner that he arrived, and was dropped off from the Buick at his front door.
When he recounted this adventure to his room-mates his excitement and emotional involvement convinced his friends that he had undergone a genuine and significant experience.
This puzzling case was thoroughly researched by John A Keel, (see right) author and UFO researcher, who was unable to find any connection between Derenberger and Tom, other than their identical encounters with entities professing to denizens of the unlikely world of Lanulos.
The inhabitants of Lanulos, according to 'Woody' and Tom were nudists, but not particularly sexy nudists.
Sex does, however, 'raise its ugly head', eventually.


Star Magic & Sex Magic

There is a considerable amount of informed speculation which suggests that Dietrich Eckart (see right) used a form of Arabian 'Star Magic' when he initiated his protege, Adolf Hitler (see left).
Arabian 'Star Magic' is one of the most secret, and reputedly powerful, forms of magic in existence. It is practised rarely now as few know the true rituals.
More to the point, 'Star Magic' derives its power from the unleashing of sexual energies released through violent intercourse, or through sadistic or masochistic actions which are capable of arousing sexual excitement to the point of orgasm.
Many people consider that UFOs and their occupants come from the Stars; the so called 'extra-terrestrial theory'.
Surprisingly, the occupants of UFOs also appear to have an interest in sexuality to a degree that is not normally associated with space exploration.
They seem to take a schoolboy's delight in peeking into bedroom windows as women undress or disturbing courting teenagers in the back seats of automobiles in deserted lover's lanes. If they abduct people they do it at night, often from their beds.


Once abducted they obsessively examine their captive's sexual organs & on occasions copulate with them (see left).
The remarkably unlikely case of 'Woody' Derenberger does not enter into the category of sexually motivated contacts, but it does share a common characteristic with a case which undisputedly points the way to this interesting predilection on the part of entities.
The Derenberger case, referred to previously, was corroborated by an independent party. 


Probably the most famous abduction case of all, that of Betty and Barney Hill, also received a certain degree of corroboration, & that from a surprising source.

Nearly everybody who is reasonably intelligent & can read is aware, to some degree, of the case of Betty and Barney Hill, apart, of course, from Whitley Strieber, if we are to believe his remarks in 'Communion'.
The Hills were a conventional, middle class couple who were actively involved with the local church.
The only unusual thing about them, for 1961, was that Barney was coloured and Betty was white.
Despite this, however, they were well integrated into their local community, in their home town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, where he was employed by the post office and she was a social worker.
The Hills were driving on route 3, just South of Lincoln in New Hampshire, returning from a holiday in Canada, where they had visited Niagara Falls and Montreal, when they noticed a bright object in the sky, ahead of their car.
They were in a National Forest area in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and there was little other traffic on the road.
The object which they had sighted was sufficiently unusual for them to stop their car in order for them to observe it through binoculars.
The object subsequently made various manoeuvres and ended by hovering a couple of hundred feet above their vehicle.
The Hills became alarmed by the proximity of the object and re-entered their car and drove away at speed. Whilst driving away from the object, the hills heard a number of strange electronic 'beeping' noises.
After this, the object seemed to disappear, and they continued their journey.
When they arrived in the vicinity of Ashland, about thirty miles down the road, they heard the mysterious electronic sounds once again.

The bulk of the previous account has been condensed from a report made to the Pease Air Force Base, in New Hampshire (see left), by Betty Hill.
It was subsequently revealed that the Base had made radar contact with an object at the same time and in the same area, sharing the same characteristics as that reported by Mrs Hill.
There the matter might have ended were it not for the fact that the Hills were left with thirty-five miles and two hours of their journey unaccounted for in addition to which they were plagued with nightmares and a general sense of lassitude and unease.
Their symptoms were sufficiently worrying to cause them, a year or two later, to seek professional help.
Although neither party had ever suffered from any psychiatric problems before; Barney did have a recurring stomach ulcer which was probably psychosomatic; they decided to consult a local psychiatrist, Dr. Benjamin Simon (see right).
He felt that the best approach would involve hypnotism. Their sessions of hypnotic regression began in December of 1963 and terminated in June of 1964.
The results of their hypnotic sessions were remarkable.
The Hills, who gave their testimonies separately, revealed repressed, and practically identical memories in which they stopped their car and subsequently were 'abducted' by alien entities.
The entities appeared to gain control over the Hills by pointing a small cylindrical object at them; the nearest thing to which Betty could compare it was a pencil.


This is a detail that is repeated in numerous contactee and abduction recollections, including those of Whitley Strieber.
The aliens, now in control, took the Hills aboard their craft and subjected them to some kind of medical examination.
The 'examination' appears to have been performed whilst the Hills were fully conscious, the aliens assuming that their memories of the process would be completely blocked by some form of 'hypnotic suggestion', which was not, apparently, very effective.
Rather than a normal, legitimate examination, Betty and Barney's description seems to indicate some form of gene sampling related to cloning.
They were examined separately, and Betty had specimens of skin taken and a probe inserted into, or in the area of, her navel, which may have been used to obtain specimens of ova, whilst Barney had a type suction device place over his genitals which presumably was used to take a sample of semen. The suction device left visible scars on Barney's groin which were subject to medical examination by the Hill's own doctor.
The beings who were responsible for the Hill's abduction were somewhat different from the tall, blond Venusians of Adamski or Menger.
The Hill's aliens were fairly short, with dull greyish skin, pointed faces with vestigial lips and elongated, 'wrap-round' eyes.
They appeared to communicate by telepathy, although there does seem to be some confusion about that point.
Although the Hills were taken and examined against their will, the beings who they encountered seemed, on the whole, to be friendly, or at least not antagonistic to earth people.
After their 'examination', the Hill's spent some time in the 'control room' of the craft.
Whilst they were there Betty was shown a three-dimensional 'star map', which she was later able to describe and draw in some detail.

The map was subsequently 'reconstructed', by an amateur astronomer; a schoolteacher called Marjorie E Fish (see left) from Ohio; who had become interested in the case.
The map (see right) was of a sector of our galaxy, approximately forty-eight light years across and thirty-six light years in depth. Within that area there are approximately 200 known stars.
Of those two hundred stars, only twelve are considered by astronomers and exobiologists to have characteristics consistent with the existence of life sustaining planets.
Betty's map consists of twelve stars in the appropriate configuration.
The odds against such a coincidence are, appropriately, 'astronomical'.
The result of this research, which lasted six years, suggested that the entities who abducted the Hills originated from a planet orbiting Zeta Reticuli; Reticulus being a constellation in the Southern Hemisphere.
A less convincing alternative interpretation, however, suggests Epsilon Eridani or Epsilon Indi. In 1973 the Reticulus theory was presented in an article which appeared in 'Saga' magazine.


The following year a further article, written by Terence Dickinson (see left), was published in 'Astronomy', a professional magazine with a formidable reputation.
These articles, and the research upon which they are based form the most convincing and compelling evidence for the 'extra terrestrial theory' of UFO phenomena, and by inference, establish links with Joseph Smith's extra terrestrial cosmology and the celestial components in Gnosticism, which has been an influence on most subsequent theories of magic.
Five years were to pass before the Hill's story became public knowledge.
The story was leaked without their consent and so, to put the record straight, they asked John Fuller to write on their behalf 'The Interrupted Journey' (see right).
Some time later Barney died unexpectedly, at the age of forty-six, from a brain haemorrhage. Betty continued to write and lecture about her experiences, and eventually she developed into a full blown contactee 'personality', receiving messages from Barney, who, it appears, had passed over into an extraterrestrial style heaven. In one of the seances, Barney suggested that they had been let off lightly with regard to their abduction experiences and hinted darkly at the fate that had befallen many other earth people at the hands of some less well intentioned aliens.
Like the Adamski case, and so many other contactee cases, the Hill case, as time went on, transformed itself, imperceptibly, from science fiction into 'star magic, as occult and spiritualist aspects began to predominate.
The case of Betty and Barney Hill is not the only modern case which has an overtly sexual content.


Almost as famous is the case of Antonio Villas-Boas (see left).
This incident took place in Brazil, in October of 1957, a number of years before the Hill case.
The case was thoroughly researched at the time by Professor Olavo Fontes of the National School of Medicine, in Rio de Janiro.
On the night of October 5th, 1957, Antonio and his brother had gone to bed at about eleven.
As the night was warm, Antonio opened a window, and in doing so he noticed a bright light in the corral.
Waking later in the night, both the brothers observed the light for a second time, before it passed over the roof of the house and disappeared.
Some days later, on the 14th of October, Antonio was ploughing with his tractor when he noticed an area of bright light at the northern end of the field in question.
When he tried to approach the light it moved away from him, and this happened on a number of occasions. The whole incident was observed by his other brother, who was some distance away in another field.
The following evening Antonio was on his own in the same field, with his tractor, at one o'clock in the morning. Why he was there at such a strange hour we are not told.
A large white, luminous egg-shaped object approached Antonio at great speed and landed close beside him. Jumping from his tractor, Antonio tried to escape.
As he was running away he was grabbed from behind by an alien. He was able to push his pursuer away, but was then overcome by three other aliens, who dragged him back to their 'ship'. They forced him up a ladder into the vessel where he found himself in a small, brightly lit, square room with polished metal walls.
He was then taken into a larger, oval room, containing a metal column in its centre. The room was sparsely furnished with a table and several swivel chairs, all fixed to the floor. After a brief discussion between themselves, which was unintelligible to Antonio, the five aliens began to forcibly undress him. Once he was totally naked one of the aliens applied a liquid all over his body with something resembling a sponge.
He was then taken to another room which contained a large upholstered couch. In this room one of the aliens took samples of blood from him.
At this point he was left alone and began to feel nauseous. After a short while the door to the room opened and a woman entered the room. She was shorter than Antonio, with pale skin, high cheekbones and a pointed chin.
She was slim with well developed breasts, full hips and generally good looking.
Antonio was shocked by the fact that, like him, she was completely naked.
Her hair was very fair but Antonio noticed that her pubic hair was red.
She began to rub herself, suggestively, against Antonio, and immediately he became almost uncontrollably sexually excited. They proceeded to have intercourse, which he subsequently described as being completely natural and normal.
Once intercourse was over the woman left the room. One of the aliens then entered the room and returned Antonio's clothing, gesturing to him to get dressed.
He was then taken on a brief tour of the 'ship' and later allowed to leave.
The ship took off, leaving Antonio in the field, by his tractor.
The case of Betty & Barney and Antonio Vila Boas are just the tip of the iceberg.
There is a vast catalogue of contact and abduction which hinge on a disturbing sexual content.
There is one case, though, which while it has startling similarities to the Hill case, and has no overtly expressed sexual content, does have a racial slant which relates it to these sexually orientated cases and the racialism to be found in Blavatsky's thought and occult Volkisch mysticism.
The case is quite obscure although well researched.
It also involves an interrupted journey, although on this occasion the scene is set in England.
John, his wife Gloria, their daughters Natasha aged five and Tanya, aged three, and John's sister, Francis, were travelling from Reading to their home near Gloucester.
They were returning from a family funeral and their journey too place during the late evening on Monday 19th June 1978.
The full story, having so many witnesses, is not only remarkably consistent, but is also exceptionally detailed. Sufficient to say that they were intercepted on a deserted stretch of road by what was apparently an alien space-craft in much the same way as the Hills were.
There was the same problem with the car's electrical system and the same rather gentle abduction. Once aboard the adults were subjected to a medical examination.
No reference was made by the participants to any sexual aspect to these examinations, although this cannot be ruled out as many of the memories were retrieved by the use of hypnosis as in the case of the Hills, and the Streiber case, which we shall be looking at in detail later.
The occupants of this 'space-craft' were surprisingly talkative, and gave what amounted to an illustrated lecture on their planet with the assistance of high definition video.
The Ufonauts purported to come from a planet which they called Janos. If one letter, the 'o' is exchanged for a 'u' we have the name Janus.
Janus was one of the most ancient gods of the Romans. His origins were in the mysterious Etruscan religion, from which many ancient Roman religious concepts were derived. He was depicted as a figure with two faces; one facing forward and one facing backwards. He was the God of beginnings and endings; a God of time.
This concern with time is reminiscent of Vadig's comment, 'See you in time.'.
Equally many entities have given names which are Greek Latin or Celtic; names which usually have some religious significance.

The people from Janus had suffered an ecological catastrophe brought on by the use of nuclear power.
To paraphrase Douglas Adam's Golgafrinchams (see left), 'their planet was doomed'.
A series of Chernobyl-like accidents had hopelessly irradiated their world and they were now looking for a new home to colonise.


It is suggested in Frank Johnson's book (see right), which describes the encounter, that the people of Janos might have originally come from the earth, and that is why they were looking to it as a possible new home.


The odd point about the book is that the Janos people are described as being Nordic in both appearance and temperament (see left), and it is suggested that land in some northern latitude might be put aside for their use, should they wish to settle here.


NORDIC ALIENS

Nordic aliens are said by self-described contactees and some UFOlogists to be a group of humanoid extraterrestrials who resemble European racial images, or more specifically Nordic-Scandinavians.
Nordics are typically described as six to seven feet tall with long blond hair and blue eyes, and are commonly reported as being male.
Their skin is said to range from fair colored to tanned, and they are sometimes reported to wear skintight clothing.
During the 1950s, many contactees, especially those in Europe, reported beings fitting this description.
Such claims became relatively less common in subsequent decades, as the grey alien supplanted the Nordic in most stories of extraterrestrial encounters, but Nordic aliens are still occasionally reported.
Some sources, such as UFO Contact Center International, refer to Nordic-type aliens as Pleiadians, referring to the Pleiades star cluster.
Reported demeanour Nordic aliens have been described as benevolent or even "magical" beings who want to observe and communicate with humans.
Contactees have said that the Nordics are concerned about the earth's environment or prospects for world peace, and may transmit messages telepathically.
The typical Nordic is paternal, watchful, smiling, affectionate, youthful, and all-knowing.
Nordics are often associated with spiritual growth and love and act as protectors for the experiencers.
A few claimants say that the Nordics have warned them about the grey aliens, but other claimants say that they have seen Nordics inside the same craft as greys.
In such reports, the Nordics are often interpreted as leaders, with the greys as their subordinates.
Nordics have certainly been involved in abductions.
The term "Nordic" did not come into wide use until the 1980s.
In earlier decades, the entities now described as Nordics were often called "Space Brothers".
Political scholar and UFOlogist Michael Salla suggested the possibility that United States president Dwight D. Eisenhower met with Nordic aliens at Edwards Air Force Base in February 1954 in an attempt to formulate an agreement over technology exchange and the elimination of the American nuclear arsenal.

The Strange Case of Adolf Hitler




Hitler's Early Life




Some of List (see left) and Liebenfels's (see right) books lay on the dusty shelves of a neat bed-sit in the middle-class suburbs of Vienna, the still dazzling capital of the once great Empire, now weakened and reduced by the ravages of a lost war.





The room was shared by Hitler and a friend from his school-days, August Kubizek (see left). 
Hitler was born in the Austrian Waldviertel region, near the Bohemian border, at Braunau-am-Inn (see right), in 1889.
It was an area steeped in poverty and well known for its inbreeding.
It was also a town which had produced a surprising number of spiritualist mediums, including the famous Schneider brothers (1).
Perhaps something more sinister than simple peasant frolicking was occurring in the woods and hills around the town (see right).

Alois Schicklgruber, Hitler's father, was the illegitimate child of Maria Anna Schicklgruber. In 1842 Maria Anna Schicklgruber married Johan Georg Hiedler; the name was originally Czech. In 1877, Alois Schicklgruber had his step-father's name, Heidler, inserted into his birth certificate, by the local priest.
The name, however, was misspelt as 'Hitler', and from then on Hitler's father was known as Alois Hitler. 
Hitler's father eventually became an Austrian Customs Official (see right).
Deriving from farming stock, he had substantially bettered himself, having risen to the lower middles class.

According to Hitler's later reminiscences, his father was strict and their relationship lacked any normal warmth.

Hitler's mother, however, idolised her son, and in return, for the rest of his life, Hitler kept her picture by his bedside.
Hitler was only six years old when his father retired from the Austrian Civil Service and bought a farm in Lambach.



It was at Lambach (see left below) that Hitler first saw the swastika, which appeared on the heraldic arms which decorated the Baroque choir stalls, where he sang in the Monastery Church on feast days.

The swastika (see right), identical to the swastika later used by the Thule Gesellschaft, had been sculpted several years before Hitler's arrival, on the orders of the abbot, Theodorich Hagen.
Next to the symbol were the letters "AL" for "Abbey Lambach" and the letters "TH" for Theodorich Hagen, and the year 1869.
It is interesting to note that the four letters on the Abbey emblem included the initials "AH."
When young "AH"  (April 20, 1889 – April 30, 1945) became a student at Lambach, Father Hagen had already died, but the swastikas Hagen ordered carved were still there.
And there was more - Hagen, an erudite ecclesiastic, had studied astrology and the occult sciences.
In 1856 he made a trip to the Near East, visiting Persia, Arabia, Turkey, and the Caucasus. Upon his return to Lambach in 1868 he hired workers to sculpt the swastika on the four corners of the building and on other religious objects.

Like Liebenfels, however, Hitler was not considered suitable for a religious life despite the fact that he was top of his class.



In 1898, the family moved to Leonding, just outside Linz, and Hitler attended the Gymnasium at nearby Steyr.
It was there that the young Adolf met August Kubizek; probably the only close, personal friend he ever had. 
In 1902, when Hitler was thirteen years old, his father died.
At school his academic work deteriorated and he became moody and difficult.
His mother, who had never been firm with him, was now unable to control him, and although he was no delinquent, he was self willed and obstinate.
The only subject which appealed to him at school was History.
His History teacher, Dr. Leopold Potsch, was a supporter of Pan Germanic Nationalism, and was opposed to the multi racial nature of the Hapsburg Empire.
For Hitler he undoubtedly became a father figure, at a critical time in his life, and he always retained fond memories of him. 

(1) Willi and Rudi Schneider were born in Braunau. Their father was a Linotype compositor who lived with his wife and six sons, close by his workshop. Willi, the elder brother, first went into trances in 1919, when he was sixteen. Willi's control was 'Olga', who claimed to have been Lola Montez, the mistress of Ludwig I of Bavaria. Willi was capable of producing materialisations of spirits and despite being tested under rigorous scientific conditions in Munich, Vienna and London from 1922 until 1927, no explanation has been advanced for such phenomena. Willi's powers faded after 1927, but Rudi's then began to develop. Rudi was also tested under rigorous scientific conditions in Munich,Vienna, Paris and London and no evidence of fraud was ever forthcoming. After 1934 Rudi's powers also began to fade, and he died in obscurity in Braunau in 1957. 

In 1907, when Hitler was eighteen, he stayed with his godparents Johan and Joanna Prinz, in Vienna, whilst taking his entrance examination for the Academy of Fine Arts (see right).
Shocked by his failure to pass, he was further shaken by the death of his mother in December of that same year, and who, as fate would have it, was being treated by a Jewish doctor.
His mother left a substantial sum of money and appointed a certain Mayrhofer, as executor. Hitler was granted a yearly allowance and moved from Linz, where he had lived since his father's death, to Vienna in 1908.

In Vienna he stayed with a certain Frau Zakrey at Stumpergasse 29, (see left) with his friend Kubizek, who was nicknamed 'Gustl'.
Hitler received a student's pension, because his father had been a civil servant, along with his allowance from his mother's estate and was, therefore, far from poor, despite his protestations in 'Mein Kamf'.
It appears that at this time Hitler lived the life of a man of leisure, visiting the opera (see right), to hear Wagner, drawing and painting and producing detailed architectural plans for the rebuilding of Vienna and Linz (2). 
In September of the same year he applied, once again, to the Academy of Fine Art, and once again he was refused.

It is at this time, when Hitler was living at Felberstrasse, that he first came across the writings of Liebenfels and Houston Stewart Chamberlain (see left).
At the beginning of 1909 he took the opportunity to visit Liebenfels and at the same time caught his first glimpse of the Spear of Longinus (see right) in the Schatzkammer in the Hofburg.
At this point, without warning or explanation, Hitler left Kubizek, and despite the fact that he had a reasonable income from his inheritance, as well as savings, he disappeared into a world of tramps and 'drop outs'. 
It is during this period that Hitler painted scenes, in watercolour and ink, of Vienna which a drifter, called Hanisch sold in the streets, in order to provide money for both of them.
In 1910, Hitler moved to a Home for Working Men at Meldemannstrasse, and yet again tried, and failed to obtain entry to the Academy. 
Whilst living in Vienna, Hitler spent the time he did not allocate to his painting reading voraciously.
He was a regular customer at a bookshop owned by Ernst Pretzsche. Pretzsche had been born in Mexico City, of German parents.
His father Wilhelm Pretzsche had been a chemist, who in his spare time had studied the occult law of the Aztecs.
When Ernst returned to Austria, in 1892, he retained his father's interest in the occult, and proceeded to open a bookshop in Vienna.
The relationship, which had developed between Hitler and Pretzsche was not only a result of their mutual interest in the occult, but was also a matter of business.

In return for providing Hitler with books Pretzsche obtained watercolours from Hitler which he sold.
The paintings improved the shop's atmosphere and often attracted customers, who as well as buying a picture, would often purchase books as well. It was a good working arrangement. 

(2) From an early age Hitler was fascinated by the art of architecture, and most of his water colours had architectural subjects.
Unfortunately for Hitler he was unable to gain entry to the Architectural Academy in Vienna due to his lack of academic qualifications.
Hitler's favourite existing building was the Paris Opera House (see right) by Charles Garnier, although its style, Neobaroque, was not used in the buildings Hitler commissioned, and in some cases designed, when he came to power.
Hitler's favourite living architect was Paul Ludwig Troost (1878-1934) (see left), a disciple of Karl Friederich Schinkel, the Neoclassicist (1781-1841).


Troost designed the Konigsplatz (see right), the Braun Haus (see left) and the House of German Art (see right below) in Munich before his tragic death in 1934.


Troost was succeeded by his pupil, Albert Speer (see left) (1905-1981) as Hitler's leading architect.
Hitler, Troost and Speer's architectural style was, not surprisingly, been bitterly criticised for the last forty years.
During the last ten years, with the emergence of Post Modernism, Hitler's taste has been, rightly vindicated.
Hitler collaborated with Speer in producing massive schemes for the rebuilding of Munich, Nurnberg, Berlin and Hitler's beloved Linz.
Sadly these schemes only exist as plans and photographs of models. 




Pretzsche specialised in books about history, philosophy, politics,art and the occult; all subjects which were of interest to the young Hitler. In addition Pretzsche was an associate of Guido von List, and was able to introduce Hitler to the occult groups active in Vienna. 
It was Pretzsche who undoubtedly introduced Hitler to the possibility of expanding the consciousness and contacting spiritual entities through the use of psychedelic drugs.
Pretzsche, through his father's researches had knowledge of, and access to Peyotl; the active constituent of the psychedelic peyote plant indigenous to Central America.
Despite this,it was not Pretzsche, however, who was responsible for introducing Hitler to the world of drug induced psychic awareness, but someone far more mysterious.

Near the town of Wachau (see left), on the Danube, lived a herbalist called Hans Lodz.
Hitler had first encountered Lodz whilst he was in the country. In an attempt to produce a spontaneous self awakening, Hitler had travelled to a remote country area, where he had camped.
It was there that Lodz had stumbled upon him.
On discovering the purpose of his visit, Lodz had taken Hitler back to his cabin, where he had prepared for him a potion, probably distilled from the active ingredients of the mushroom Amanita muscarina (see right) (3).
Hitler's experiences with Lodz's potions, along with Pretzsche's peyotol were undoubtedly responsible for opening his mind to the relationships existing between the Macrocosm and Microcosm, and taking him on the first steps to an awareness of the existence of powerful, and alien entities. 
Despite such strange experiences, ordinary life still continued, however, and in 1911 Hitler received a substantial sum from his godmother, Joanna Prinz, just before she died.
Mysteriously, though, he continued to live in doss-houses, eking out a living by selling his watercolours.


In 1913, possibly in order to avoid service in the Austrian Army, Hitler, who was by then twenty-one, moved to Munich (see left), the capital of Bavaria, and rented a room above a tailor's shop, owned by a man called Popp, in Schleissheimerstrasse.
Once in Munich he used his occult connections in Vienna as a means of facilitating his introduction to similar groups in Munich. and it was in this way that Hitler became acquainted with the Thule Gesellschaft and Dietrich Eckart (see right).
Despite his involvement with the 'well-heeled' in occult circles Hitler continued his apparently poverty stricken life-style, making money from painting scenes of the city and continuing his studies of History Politics and Philosophy.
How long he might have gone on living like this if impossible to tell, but in 1914 the great event arrive, for which Hitler may well have been preparing. 
According to 'Mein Kampf', Hitler, on hearing of the outbreak of war (see right), got down on his knees and thanked Heaven for granting him the good fortune of being permitted to live at that time.
Although Hitler's description is somewhat melodramatic, he undoubtedly was pleased that war had finally come, and in this he was not unlike millions of other ordinary people.
It is probable, though, that the motives behind Hitler's gratitude were radically different from the majority of his contemporaries. 
Not surprisingly, like thousands of other young men, he volunteered shortly afterwards for the German Army, joining the 16th Bavarian Regiment (see left). 

(3) Amanita muscarina, also known as Fly Agaric is a fungus with a deep red cap marked with white spots. Its common name derives from the practice, common in Germany, of crumbling pieces of the fungus in a saucer of water which was used to kill flies. The mushroom was used by Norse warriors in the Dark Ages, its effect being to give them exceptional courage and strength, causing them to go 'berserk'. Less aggressive individuals found that the mushroom would grant them glowing visions of supernatural beauty and significance, and therefore the mushroom was regularly used by shamans, witches and magicians 

Once in the Army and through his basic training, Hitler volunteered for the dangerous job of Meldeganger or regimental messenger, and throughout the War refused to be promoted above the rank of corporal (see left). 
He was initially posted to the front at Ypres.
As a result of the First Battle of Ypres, only six hundred men, in Hitler's regiment, out of an original total of three thousand and five hundred, survived.
Hitler himself was later wounded in the thigh at the Somme and spent a short time in a military hospital in Berlin, recovering.
Rejoining his regiment he took part in the battle of Arras, and in 1917, visited Berlin and Dresden while on leave.
In August of 1918 Hitler was awarded the Iron Cross, First Class (see right), for his exceptional bravery.
There is, in fact, evidence that he won the Iron Cross on two occasions; in one case in recognition of his capture of four French soldiers single handed.

In October he was blinded in a gas attack at Ypres (see left), and subsequently sent to a military hospital at Pasewalk, a small town north-east of Berlin. In 'Mein Kampf' Hitler describes, in detail, his physical pain along with the anguish and despair he felt when he learned of Germany's defeat.
While initially the effects of his gassing must have caused him considerable pain, what he fails to tell us is that once the physical pain had subsided, he found himself in a prolonged state of sensory deprivation; known to para-psychologists as 'the ganzfeld effect' (4); confined to his bed, unable to see and in the hushed atmosphere of a hospital ward.
Compared to the living hell of the front, with its screaming shells combining with the screams of the mutilated and dying, and the everlasting thundering of the guns, Hitler's new environment was tailor-made for the psychic experience he sought.
On his recovery, in November, he was posted back to Munich.
When he arrived in that city he was a very different man to the one who had left four years before. 
By the time Hitler returned to Munich the War had ended.
During the next year Germany was racked by internal dissent, and after the Kaiser's abdication, along with the other various Kings, Princes and Arch-Dukes of the Empire, Germany became a republic.
On the 6th of April, 1919, in Bavaria, a Soviet Republic was declared at Munich, following the fall of the Hoffman Government.
The Communist regime was quickly overthrown by troops from the Reichwehr which had been dispatched from Berlin.
During this time of upheaval & uncertainty Hitler was initially stationed at Traunstein (see left), near Munich, as a guard in a prisoner of war camp, & then later was sent back to Munich as a 'Political Officer' for the Wehrmacht.
During this time he successfully infiltrated certain Army units which had gone over to the Communists.
When the Communists fell from power, the army turned to informers in order to root out subversive elements, and as a result of information, which Hitler provided, many were executed during the vengeful days which followed. 

(4) Since the end of the last War the effects of sensory deprivation have been studied intensively, particularly by Dr. John C Lilly in the USA. It has been found that if all external stimulation can be effectively reduced (the method used by Lilly was to immerse the body in a saline solution at blood temperature in darkness with 'white noise' supplied to the ears) the brain would project its consciousness internally and produce symbolic images of remarkable intensity, along with unusual insights, which were remarkably similar to those experienced under the influence of the major psychedelics.

It is at about this time that Hitler became involved once again with the Thule Group (see left).
In 1919 the Thule Gesellschaft set up a workers organisation, which subsequently amalgamated with 'The Committee of Independent Workers', and became known as the German Nationalist Worker's Party (see right).
Hitler implies that he first came into contact with this small party which was ostensibly run by the ex-railway engineer Anton Drexler (see left), as the result of an instruction from his superior officer, Konstantin Heirl (see right) (5). 
Some years later, Hitler went to great lengths in 'Mein Kampf', to paint an innocuous picture of his first encounter with the German Worker's Party. Hitler claimed, in 'Mein Kampf', that he came upon the political group, quite by chance.
He recounts, in considerable detail, how he attended his first meeting at the Lieber Room of the Sterneckerbrau in Munich.
Hitler gives a somewhat dismissive picture of this group and describes how, at one point, he apparently entered rather violently into the discussion.

Throughout his account he gives the impression of not knowing the names of any of the members, with the exception of Gottlieb Feder (see right) (6), the economist.
He implies that he was pleased to leave, and had no intention of returning. When he subsequently received an offer of membership he implies that he was both surprised and unsure as to whether to accept.
Of course, after communing with his 'droll little friends', the mice, in his bare barrack room, Hitler did decide to accept this invitation to join, and, as is well known, the German Worker's Party eventually became the National Socialist German Worker's Party.
The rest, as they say, is History. 

(5) Heirl is mysterious by virtue of the fact that his date of birth is unknown, along with the fact that at the end of the war he disappeared without trace. At the time he ordered Hitler to investigate the German Worker's Party he was probably a clandestine member, although officially his membership postdates that of Hitler. He subsequently became responsible for the long term planning of the NSDAP. 

(6) Gottfried Feder, 1883-1941, joined the German Worker's Party in 1919. In 1920 he was instrumental in helping to draw up the famous 'Twenty-five Articles', which formed the backbone of the party's policies. Feder was essentially an economist, radically ahead of his time, who saw the inherent flaws in industrial society, and particularly its dependence on the concept of interest. In his quest for power Hitler found it necessary to court the rich industrialist, such as Thyssen and Krup, and thus Feder's influence waned. Feder continued teaching at University level, but died in relative obscurity.


The Sources of Hitler's Power

Hitler's account of his first meeting with the German Worker's Party is undoubtedly, like much else in 'Mein Kampf', a complete fiction.

Hitler of course was a member of the Thule Group, from which the majority of members of the committee of the German Worker's Party had been recruited.

Eckart, (see right) with the approval of the Army, had appointed Hitler to the committee of the party with the intention of him eventually becoming leader.
The Army considered Hitler to be an ideal 'front' man.
Eckart, of course, knew better.
He said to his confidants in the Thule Gesellschaft, shortly before he died, "Hitler will dance, but it is I who have called the tune !
I have initiated him into the 'Secret Doctrine', opened his centres of vision (1) and given him the means to communicate with the Powers. Do not mourn for me: I shall have influenced History more than any other German".



Eckart's use of the phrase ' Secret Doctrine' appears, on the face of it, to be a reference to Madame Blavatsky's Theosophical teaching; 'The Secret Doctrine' being the title of her last book published in 1891; particularly with regards to Race and the existence of 'hidden supermen'. Eckart may, however, be referring to some esoteric doctrine of his own.


Returning to Hitler's political testament, 'Mein Kampf'; the book, of course, must be understood as a pure piece of political propaganda.
The cruel and devastating lessons of War had taught Hitler that political power and the destinies of nations could not be compromised by such bourgeois values as honesty and openness.
Any consideration of current political events, will of course show that Hitler's appraisal is still widely practised by even the most 'respectable' of governments who are, on numerous occasions, 'economical with the truth'.
Notwithstanding being economical with the truth, 'Mein Kampf' is a remarkable book, which, because of the reputation of its author, has been regularly described as verbose, confused and turgid in style, by many commentators.
It is probably significant to note that it was only after 1945 that such criticisms of the book's style and content became general.

The book itself was the result of a collaboration between Hitler, Professor Karl Haushofer, Rudolf Hess (see left) and Haushofer's son, Albrecht (2).
The book was an immediate success after its publication in 1925 and it not only made Hitler enormously rich, eventually selling in excess of nine million copies, but was also influential in convincing intellectuals, academics and the upper classes of the legitimacy and value of the National Socialist ideal.
Unlike the books of Smith, Blavatsky, Crowley or even Chamberlain, there is no claim on Hitler's part, or anyone else's for that matter, to divine or daemonic inspiration in its creation.
The book is simply propaganda combined with political, economic and social philosophy.

(1) The 'centre of vision' are the the Sacred Chakras, which are a central part of esoteric philosophy in both the Oriental and Oriental systems of magic. In Occidental magic, which has its origins in Gnosticism and the Kabala, the Chakras are associated with the Planetary Spheres and the Kabalistic Tree of Life. There are seven Chakras in the human body associated with various organs. The lowest Chakra is associated with the rectum, the second with the genitals, the third with the abdomen, the fourth with the heart, the fifth with the thyroid, the sixth with the pineal gland and the last Chakra with the crown. Each Chakra 'vibrates' at its own rate and acts as a 'gate' to the 'Kundalini Power' which originates in the ano-genital area and, when released, can rise through the Chakras, being modified by each one; eventually reaching the Crown Chakra to produce a spiritual 'awakening'. There are various ways of causing such an awakening of power; the easiest being a direct stimulation of the Kundalini through erotic or sado-erotic practices. Such stimulation,rather than the slower and considerably more difficult meditatory path, often results in a lack of control of the powers so obtained. 




(2) Albrecht Haushofer see left), son of Professor Karl Haushofer, was born in 1903.

An intellectual, he wrote esoteric poetry and historical verse dramas.
Remarkably precocious, he obtained his doctorate at the age of nineteen.
He was involved in Hess's flight to Scotland in May, 1941 and in the attempt on Hitler's life in July of 1944. He was arrested by the Gestapo and executed in 1945. 




It is not the purpose of this study to document, in detail, Hitler's rise to power, or his subsequent conduct of the War.
That Hitler, in common with the other individuals in this study, underwent a transformational experience, which radically altered his outlook, and unleashed hitherto untapped mental and psychic resources is without doubt.In some ways Hitler is the most problematic of our subjects.
Objectively, it must be admitted that, out of all the individuals we shall be considering, his achievements were, undoubtedly, the most influential, far reaching and significant.
Most people, however, would find it difficult to admit to such an assessment despite the fact that Hitler was, almost single-handedly responsible for remoulding, politically, a country and its culture.
He then went on to impose his philosophical system upon the greater part of a whole continent, causing, in the process, the outbreak of a conflict of world wide scope and significance.

It is one of the mysteries of History that we can call Alexander of Macedon - (see left - head by Arno Breker), 'Alexander the Great', despite of the fact that he crucified the entire adult male population of Tyre and Sidon, castrating the youths and sending them into slavery along with the women, whom his soldiers violated.


Equally we can study the career of Napoleon the First (see right), dispassionately, despite his conquest of Europe and the enormous numbers of dead and injured which these wars produced.


In like manner the Genocide undertaken by the United States against the American Indians in the second half of the nineteenth century has been all but 'swept under the carpet', while the USA arrogantly swaggers around the world, using force if necessary, to attack other countries it considers guilty of violating human rights.


Stalin, whilst often condemned, is still viewed merely as a historical phenomena although he was undoubtedly guilty of causing the deaths of far more people than Hitler, even assuming that the highest estimates of deaths in the Holocaust are accepted as correct.

Stalin, of course was our ally in the last War and this seems to interfere, radically with our subsequent judgement.

Perhaps the political leader responsible for the largest number of deaths in all history is Mao Ze Dong, the 'Chairman' of the Chinese Communist Party.
Millions died as a result of the civil war he pursued, as well as those who died in the 'purges', the appalling famines, and , of course, the notorious 'Cultural revolution'.
In the forty-odd years since the end of the last War Hitler has been presented as the 'ultimate bogeyman' of History.
The victors wrote a history, however, that was too darkly coloured. Shakespeare warns us to beware of those who 'protest too much'.
The victors feared, and even today still fear that Hitler may strike at them from the grave.
It appears that they know something about this man, and his ideas that many, at the time, did not.
However, on the reasonable assumption that Hitler and Nazism are essentially evil and repulsive they will surely appeal to no one.
It should not be necessary to destroy Hitler's mountain home, the Berghof, at Berchtesgaden (3), along with everything else associated with him, and to ridicule and condemn both him and his ideas at every opportunity if they are self evidently unacceptable to right thinking people.
Behind all this frantic and seemingly unnecessary condemnation lies an enigma which involves, undoubtedly, the nature of the source of Hitler's ideas and personal power.
Those who are now in power, and who inherited the laurels of the victory over Fascism, know something of, and deeply fear the power that inspired Hitler, and through him, a whole nation, a mere fifty years ago.
That power is opposed to all our mundane and bourgeois habits; a power capable of releasing us from this familiar world into a harsher dawn.

(3) When the Americans captured Berchtesgaden, in Bavaria, in 1945, it was decided that the Berghof (Haus Wachenfeld), which Hitler had first rented and subsequently bought with the proceeds from the sale of 'Mein Kampf', after his release from Landsberg Prison, should be destroyed, along with most of the other buildings on the Obersalzburg, with the exception of the Platterhof and the Hotel Turken.
This reason given for this wanton destruction of buildings of historical importance, which included the Nurnberg Stadium, (which resisted all attempts such was the quality of its construction), and many other buildings designed by Speer and Hitler, was that they would become 'shrines to Nazism'. 


That Hitler has been judged a psychopath, a fool, a carpet chewing maniac, a crank, an uneducated eccentric, a thug and much else besides is well known. Most people would undoubtedly consider him an evil individual.

The problem we face here, though, is that it is only the victors who are given the privilege of writing History, initially.
Hitler was well aware of this when he made his famous statement that 'the Goddess of History would tear to tatters the judgement of this court', during his trial in 1924, which resulted from the failure of the Munich Putch.
Any objective assessment of Hitler cannot support the contention that he was insane, stupid or lacking in personal qualities.
The fact that he was highly thought of by his superiors in the Army should indicate that he was self disciplined, reliable and intelligent.
The fact that he was awarded the Iron Cross (see right) on two occasions, should show that he was courageous.
None of this, however, explains how Hitler was able to bring his influence to bear on the then President, Field Marshall Paul von Hindenburg, Crown Prince Friederich Wilhelm of Hohenzollern, the Kaiser's heir, General von Mackensen, Baron Fritz Thyssen (4), Gustav and Alfred Krupp (5), Professors Naumann, Bertram and Jordan, Wagner's widow, Cosima and of course Houston Stewart Chamberlain, amongst many others.

It was in 1923 that Hitler met Chamberlain at Bayreuth, in Bavaria, and acclaimed him, in the presence of the Wagner family and other celebrities, to be the 'new German messiah'.
The old man, driven once again by his daemons, was able, eventually, to die content; happy in the knowledge that his prophecies of Aryan greatness were at last about to come true. Hitler attended his funeral in 1927.

For a man who, whilst not being ugly or deformed, was not handsome, Hitler had a remarkable hold over both men and women, which in the final analysis, came down to an animal and almost sexual attraction. While it may be difficult for many people to accept the fact today, Hitler came nearer to being revered as a God than any other individual in modern times.

Surprisingly, this adoration was not limited to the uneducated masses but was felt by artists, intellectuals and academics; many of his greatest admirers being in the military; the Junker aristocracy, and captains of industry and commerce.
Those who met Hitler after the War often refer, in their reminiscences, to his remarkable pale, clear blue eyes, which many state, unequivocally, had a distinctly hypnotic quality
 Face to face, few could resist his charm, or his anger. and contrary to popular belief, it was only towards the end that Hitler resorted to bouts of aggressive anger, rather than to his winning smile and boyish enthusiasm.


(4) Fritz von Thyssen, 1873-1951. He was a multimillionaire who made his money from steel. He became a member of the NSDAP in 1923, pouring huge sums of money into the party coffers. He saw the National Socialists as a bulwark against communism. He was instrumental in encouraging Hitler to remove members of the party like Strasser and Feder, who were anti- capitalist, from influential positions in the party. 


(5) Alfred Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, 1907-1967. The son and heir of Gustav Krupp, he was an enthusiastic supporter of Hitler. In 1943 he was appointed Minister of War Economy. Shortly after his capture and imprisonment as a 'war criminal', by the Allies he was released and his companies property and fortune were restored to him. 
Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach, 1870-1950. A multimillionaire industrialist who was mainly involved in the manufacture of armaments. From 1931 he was Chairman of the Association of German Industrialists. Initially he distrusted Hitler but later, after meeting Hitler, he became a firm friend and supporter of the National Socialists. At the end of the war he was not tried by the Nurnberg War Crimes Commission because of 'ill health'.


Eckart implied that Hitler had special powers and communion with occult entities; 'hidden masters'.
Certainly, Hitler had an abnormal ability to sway people, both as individuals and in the mass. Eye witnesses are united in reporting an almost physical transformation in the Fuhrer when he spoke at public meetings.
It was Hanfstangl (see right) (6) who suggested that Hitler, when speaking to the masses, 'had that ability which is needed to make people stop thinking critically and simply emote'.
 Equally, Professor Alan Bullock (7) was of the opinion that when Hitler spoke it was not as if he was using words but rather a case of the emotions coming direct, with a rawness and power.
Many eye witnesses have equated Hitler's behaviour during his public appearances with those of a medium. Usually they have presumed that Hitler was communicating with the collective unconscious of his listeners. It is more likely that he was channelling power from a more mysterious source.
The sheer power of Hitler's presence is now difficult to imagine, despite the fact that unlike Joseph Smith, or Rasputin, who were also capable of swaying large groups, we have both film and sound recordings of Hitler's speeches.
There are, however, still many witnesses of Hitler's rallies, alive today, who are prepared to honestly report their feelings about Hitler, now that some fifty years have passed.

Alfons Heck (see left), a writer on the National Socialist era, has stated, frankly, that when he came face to face with Hitler, at a Hitler Youth rally, he felt he had come face to face with God. Eckart had obviously done his job well.



Alfons Heck (3 November 1928 - 12 April 2005) was born in the Rhineland.
From 1938 through the end of World War II, he was a member of Hitler Youth, eventually becoming a Hitler Youth Officer and a fanatical adherent of Nazism’s ideologies.
Decades later, after emigrating to the United States via Canada, Heck wrote candidly of his youthful military experiences in news articles and two books - 'A Child of Hitler: Germany in the Days When God Wore a Swastika' and 'The Burden of Hitler's Legacy'.
Often confronted with comments from his audience that similar malevolent indoctrination wouldn’t occur again, Heck replied that if any regime chose to do so, children at such vulnerable ages could be coerced into the same sort of blind obedience for a cause, that the Hitler Youth were taught to accept.
Heck also provided testimony on the parallels between Nazism and Islamism and was featured in the documentary 'Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West'.



The key to understanding the exceptional individual, and particularly the individual who has been made exceptional, is to be found in the Will.


It is no accident that the film of the 1934 Nurnberg Party Rally, (see left) directed by Leni Riefenstahl (see right) was called 'The Triumph of the Will' (8).

To Hitler the Will was paramount, as it was for Crowley, Gurdjieff and all others who wished to control the powers of the occult.
The focusing of the Will was of the essence; once that was lost dissolution was inevitable. The Will, which must be focused into a blazing stream of pure energy, is used to wield images and symbols as if they were material reality.
It is the source of Life; for the Creator is simply an infinite and all-powerful Will, and death comes to men only through a weakness of Will.


THE WILL

'And the Will lieth therin, which dieth not.
Who knoweth the mysteries of the Will and its vigour ?
For God is but a great Will pervading all things by the nature of its intentness.
Man doth not yield himself to the Angels nor to Death uterly, save only through the weakness of his feeble Will !'

Joseph Glanvill - (1636–1680)


(6) Ernst Franz Sedgwick Hanfstangl (Putzi) (see left), 1887-1976.
He was a Harvard graduate, with an American mother. He belonged to an affluent family, which originally came from Munich and dealt in fine art reproductions and publishing. Hanfstangl met Hitler in 1921 and regularly lent and gave him money. He was responsible for introducing Hitler to 'polite' Munich society.
He was a competent pianist who often entertained and relaxed Hitler by playing excerpts from Wagner's operas. In 1937 he inexplicably fled from Germany, convinced that Hitler was planning to kill him.
After the war he published a book entitled 'Hitler, the Missing Years'.

(7) Alan Louis Charles Bullock, Baron Bullock (13 December 1914 – 2 February 2004), was a British historian, who wrote an influential biography of Adolf Hitler and many other works.



(8) Leni Riefenstahl (see right), 1902-. She was a documentary film director whose first film, 'Sieg des Glaubens' ('Victory of Faith'), was made at the behest of Gobbles, the Minister of Propaganda.

Her relationship with Gobbles was a difficult one and she suffered a nervous breakdown while making the film.
Hitler personally convinced her to make a further documentary of the 1934 Nurnberg Party Rally.
This was the now famous 'Triumph des Willens' ('The Triumph of the Will') which is considered, even today, and despite its subject, to be the peak of the documentary film maker's art.
She went on to make 'Olympia', which was a record of the Berlin Olympics of 1936. She was imprisoned for a short while by the Allies after the war, presumably for making documentaries, and has continued her career in films and photography since then.


From Hitler's confidential conversations, including those with Heinrich Himmler (see right) (9) and Hermann Rauschning (see left) (10), it is evident that he was far from being an 'ex-corporal turned right-wing, bourgeois politician, made good'.

One simply has to observe Hitler with someone like Neville Chamberlain to see the difference between a politician and a religious leader.
His statements show him to be a person for whom, like Joseph Smith, politics were only a means to an end.
He, like Crowley, was ushering in a 'New Age', and like Crowley, and unlike our contemporary, sentimental and woolly headed disciples of alternative lifestyles and green politics, he knew that if this New Age was to be firmly established it would involve upheaval and suffering on an immense scale.
The tragedy is probably that we have had the suffering but the 'new age' has been aborted by the free-market capitalists.
That dawn is still awaited by so many, but before it dawns more suffering is probably inevitable
Hitler made it clear that he felt that the world was at the point of a crucial transformation which he would be instrumental in initiating.

It was not to be simply a political or economic transformation, but rather a transformation of moral and spiritual values. In this, of course, he was echoing one of his favourite authors, Friederich Nietzsche (see left).
In addition he saw the advent of a change in cultural perception, from the dominance of logic and the intellect to a new consciousness of Will and magical interpretation.
Rauschning makes it clear in his book 'Conversations with Hitler' that to understand Hitler one must realize that he believed absolutely that there was a magical relationship between Man and the Universe.
Although Rauschning was not aware of it, this conviction on Hitler's part undoubtedly stemmed from his drug induced experiences with Hans Lodz in 1910 and the teachings of Eckart.
In common with Madame Blavatsky and Gurdjieff, Hitler believed that the creative process, far from being over, was still active, and, if anything, undergoing a significant escalation.

Like Joseph Smith, Hitler believed that the purpose of material creation was the deification of man (see right), although Hitler, unlike Smith, believed that such a process could be achieved in this life by essentially biological means.
This was the rationale behind the concept of the 'Herrenvolk' and the racial policies which have apparently so outraged the 'liberal conscience'.


Perhaps Hitler's most perceptive and significant comment was that the purpose of human evolution was 'to achieve a mystic vision of the Universe' (see right).




It was also, by inference, the purpose of National Socialism.

Heinrich Himmler (see left), 1900-1945.

He was born at Landshut (see right) in Bavaria, the son of a respected teacher and former tutor to the Wittlesbach family.



Himmler studied at the Technischehochschule in Munich and became a laboratory technician.
He was too young to serve in the Great War, but joined the Freikorps at the end of the War.






Himmler took part in the Munich Putch of 1923 (see left), acting as standard bearer, having joined the NSDAP that same year.

After the Putch he set up a small chicken farm near Munich (see right.
He was appointed head of Hitler's bodyguard, the Schutzstaffel or SS,in 1926.
By 1936 Himmler controlled all the police in Germany, including the Gestapo and the SD.

The SS eventually became a state within a state, having its own armed forces and producing its own weapons, including the first operational jet fighters along with the V1 and V2 rockets.


The SS, under Himmler made its own laws, which were administered by its own courts. It also had responsibility for the concentration camps.

The Ahnenerbe (see right) was a special section of the SS concerned with the study of Nordic culture and History along with occult matters. Himmler, like Hitler, was teetotal and vegetarian.
He was also convinced of the value of Homeopathic and Herbal Remedies.
The SS itself intended to provide the genetic material from which would come the superhuman beings which Hitler saw as the final stage of Human evolution. Himmler committed suicide in 1945.

(10) Herman Rauschning, (1887-). He was president of the Danzig Senate in 1933. In 1935 he disagreed with Hitler and fled to Switzerland. He subsequently became an American citizen. 


Those killed in the war which began in 1939, and those who died in the concentration camps were, undoubtedly, in Hitler's view, an acceptable price to pay for the 'Deification of Man' and the 'Mystic Vision'.
Before we jump too hurriedly to a judgement on such values, however, perhaps we should consider the 'assured mutual destruction' of nuclear war, which hung over the world for fifty years, and which to an extent still does, which is not only contemplated, but embraced in the defence of economic systems which are patently fraudulent, ineffective and ecologically disastrous.
Which is the greater price to pay, and which is the higher objective ?
The 'liberals' in the West and the one-time communists in the East, with their fingers on the nuclear buttons are still writing History, but, it seems, fewer people are prepared to believe them.
Of course, there was never any possibility of Hitler's vast vision of a transformed future coming to pass within his lifetime.


Shortly after the beginning of the War Hitler began to lose control of the powers he had acquired through the teachings of L¢dz, his experiences in the Great War and his time with Eckart. Essentially these powers found their energy in the release of the sexual Chakras (see left).

It is known that throughout his adolescence Hitler had severely repressed his sexual drives.


In 1928, when Hitler bought Haus Wachenfeld (se left) on the Obersalzburg, he invited his sister Angela Raubal (see right) to be his housekeeper.


She brought with her, to Berchtesgaden, her two daughters, Friedl and Geli.

By 1929 Hitler and Geli were constantly in each other's company when Hitler was in Munich or on the Obersalzburg.
When Hitler acquired an apartment in Prinzregentenstrasse (see right), in Munich, Geli was given rooms there.
There is no doubt that Hitler either had, or intended to have a sexual relationship of some sort with his niece, and was insanely jealous of her seeing other men; at one point accusing her of having an affair with Emil Maurice, his chauffeur and bodyguard.
In September 1931, Geli Raubal was found shot dead in Hitler's flat. According to the Coroner she had committed suicide after an argument with Hitler. Hitler was devastated, weeping publicly at Geli's funeral.
It appears that Hitler had written a letter to Geli shortly before her death, which had somehow fallen into the wrong hands.
The letter was eventually recovered by a priest who supported Hitler.
Everyone who read the letter, including the priest, disappeared as a result of Himmler's efficient and deadly actions.
In the letter it is believed that Hitler wrote frankly about his sado-masochistic attitude towards sex, which was related to his manipulation of sexual activities for paranormal purposes, although this was not explicitly stated in the letter.
It is possible that Geli committed suicide, but whether this was a falsification of the truth, or whether Hitler or Himmler killed Geli is really immaterial.
That Geli was a danger to Hitler was an undoubted fact.
She was certainly an electoral liability and, perhaps more significantly and bizarrely, she would have been a drain on the psycho-sexual powers which Hitler needed in order to produce his mediumistic performances of mass oratory.

A year later Hitler met Eva Braun (see right) (11) at the studio of the photographer Heinrich Hoffman.
To begin with Hitler provided her with a flat in Munich, but later she moved into the Berghof. She remained hidden from the public, although she acted as Mistress of the Berghof, entertaining Hitler's eminent guests.
There has long been controversy over the nature of Hitler's relationship with her.

(11) Eva Braun, later Eva Hitler, (1912-1945). Born in Simbach, in Bavaria, close to the Austrian border, she had a limited education but was physically attractive, with a pleasing personality. She had two sisters, Ilse and Gretl, who often stayed with her at the Berghof. In 1945 Eva committed suicide, after marrying Hitler in the Fuhrerbunker in Berlin.


Of those who were close to Hitler who are still alive, Reinhard Spitzy (see left), von Ribbentrop's secretary, and a regular visitor to the Berghof, suggests that Hitler and Eva had a normal sexual relationship, whereas Putzi Hanfstangl suggests that Hitler was not interested in 'normal' sexual activities. The mystery remains.
Once Hitler had consolidated his power he began, apparently, to develop bourgeois tastes and attitudes which he would have probably rejected in his youth.





He liked to relax in an informal atmosphere, indulging in his passion for cream cakes, decaffeinated coffee and mountain walks, in his mountain home on the Obersalzburg.
His para-normal powers waned but his daemons did not desert him.
Often he would awaken at night, screaming. He would rush into a corner, and stand trembling, sweat pouring off him, pointing at some invisible entity, while he mumbled and endless stream of meaningless phrases and words.
He would repeatedly declare that 'he' had come for him.
After some considerable time, and a great deal of reassurance from his aides, his breathing would return to normal, the vision would fade, and Hitler would finally be put back to bed.
The question remains, who or what did Hitler see in the shadows ?
Eventually, his powers deserted him completely. The bomb plot, arranged by some of his disillusioned generals was the final blow, weakening his physical & spiritual resolve on which his 'will' rested. He had failed, and was cast aside to be reviled by History. 'Who' ever or 'what' ever cast him aside was seeking a new strategy; a more subtle one.
