Years ago, there was a great movie starring Robert Redford and Paul Neuman called "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". Redford and Neuman (Butch and Sundance) spent most of the movie humorously evading an eternally persistant group of lawmen, led by one who seemed to unerringly know just where to look for the two hapless outlaws. At many points in the neverending chase, the two characters would thoughtfully look at each other, perhaps after gazing back at the dust cloud on the horizon which always contained the determined lawmen, and then one of them would calmly state to the other "Who are those guys, anyway?"
I can't tell you how many times I myself have spoken those words quietly to myself as I went through the analysis and processing of Electronics Voice Phenomena (EVP). I have certainly recorded a diverse group of voices, and always found fascinating differences in the data from these EVP voices from each selected locale.
Who are those guys, anyway?........
Let me just give you the short version for now. (I think the "long" version is way too complex for a brief article such as this.)
But basically, most researchers and investigators pretty much agree that when we die, we are quickly dissasociated from our physical bodies and find ourselves in spirit form. We are aware and seemingly quite in control of ourselves, in spite of the fact that we can not be heard or seen by our loved ones on earth,(although we can see them). No doubt, this can be a rude awakening for most. Some folks who have held rigid belief systems of life and death, or those who may have not given much thought at all to spiritual things, will find that they need assistance and time to adjust to the reality of their new existance.
Most researchers, psychics, and others who have experienced out of body experiences (OBE's), and near death experiences (NDE's), say that there will be guides, friends, deceased family, etc., to assist during this time. However, it is up to the individual to open themselves to this help, and many require "spiritual time" or a "period of adjustment" to accept this concept of their new reality. Almost all agree that even the most enlightened spirits will always at least briefly visit their loved ones and even attend their own funeral, before moving on to higher levels of spiritual planes.
And there you have it......."Who are those guys?" is explained then, I believe, by the presence of a diverse group of spirits in a sort of "interim level or plane"situated in and around the earth plane. Some have recently passed on, some have been at that level for some time and find themselves in a position to be of service to others there, some are indeed lost or otherwise still confused, and then another whole unknown group of spirits with specific purpose may be found. Many of those would be defined as guides, helpers, or angels. Others may not have even lived in a body on earth. I suppose we won't know all the details until.....well, you know.
I have learned to be very careful what I say when I am seeking EVP recordings. I always announce to the spirits what my purpose is, and explain to them what I can and can't do. It is necessary to make these statements as briefly as possible. There is every indication that any reply or communication from a spirit using this method will always be brief. Most researchers think there is some energy requirement which must be adhered to, and we always find the messages to be short and to the point.
Untill I learned to be very careful about what I say in these sessions, I had the misfortune of finding that I might have mislead some of the spirits who answered me. In one case, in a cemetary I had simply asked if any spirits had any messages . Later while processing the audio, I discovered an immediate response from an entity who asked me to say hello to a certain Pastor, and also to a lady (whose first names were both given). I was horrified to think that I may have given a false promise to this spirit, as I had no chance of figuring out who these people were or giving this message to them. In several cases , spirits have cried out to me to help them. Of course, I was not able at that exact moment to even hear them, but I had neglected to explain that to them when I asked for their communication.
Now when I do an EVP session, my every word is planned and rehearsed according to the objectives and location of the session. I want to make sure I don't say something to disturb a spirit entity or mislead them. After all, I'd just as soon not upset someone and have them follow me home or something....:-)
My experiences with EVP have proven to me that beyond a doubt there is a dimensional existance beyond our life on earth. My life, my values, and beliefs have all changed for the better, as I have become more aware of this spiritual knowledge.
Later on, I'll write some articles about specific encounters with spiritual entities and voices from beyond..........Rich
Those of us who have our hearts in the UFO/Alien controversy (and are sick of decades of disinformation and skeptical song and dance) were quite encouraged when Sci FI, and Steven Spielberg joined hands on TV and proclaimed a new era was about to begin. They would organize honest to goodness investigations and a TV campaign to blow the lid off this business once and for all.....
Wow, we thought...they'll show 'em how its done by golly.
So, for weeks on end we watch TV spots touting the forthcoming Roswell TV special which will feature a new archeological dig, planned to the last detail by credible scientists. and accompanied by special security uniformed officers to protect the veracity of findings.They will even have a major network anchor personality to present the show with a new atmosphere of credibility. Also, TV spots hint a subtle suggestion of the beginnings of a push to make public information witheld by the government about UFOs.
And, best of all......The TV spots promise "NEW SMOKING GUN EVIDENCE"!!
Hey, allright, guys, way to go....it's about time...we all exclaim !! And, anxiously, we watch the hype, and mark the calendar for the event. All along the way, each TV spot throws in a shameless promotional piece for Spielbergs new miniseries "Taken" which will air beginning the first week of December
Right off the bat, trouble starts to brew...Mention is made of witnesses from the Greer Disclosure Group pitching in to get on the bandwagon. Unfortunately, Greer himself then went on record as hinting that the whole mess smells like a PR lead up to the "Taken" (Spielberg) series, and that the "Taken" series smacks of a classic military disinformation ploy and tactic often referred to as "DDT" (decoy,distract, and trash). (Source www.disclosureproject.org/writings.htm)
And then....here we are...the day after the big event. Once again, we have been had. We have been mades fools of, and taken to the cleaners. The skeptics are laughing their asses off, and the SCI FI campaign has fallen victim to the same 'ol crap we have been watching for years.
Don't these people remember what the REAL ISSUE is about Roswell?
Hey, we've been listening to personal narrative and such for decades. Those credible witnesses have long since made their case. Yes, SCI FI did come up with one new military witness who had witheld his testimony out of fear for all these years. Congrats to SCI FI on that one, but, once again, remember the REAL ISSUE behind the Roswell incident and every other UFO and abduction incident....?.
"HARD EVIDENCE....WHERE IS THE HARD PHYSICAL EVIDENCE" ???
Yep, that's right. Remember where it went? The military scooped it all up, and sent it away; bodies, material physical evidence of alien spacecraft, and all. Off it went into the vast secretive facilities of the government, never to be seen again.
So, we now are primed for the "SMOKING GUN EVIDENCE" and we are expecting the archeological dig to find some of that "HARD EVIDENCE"
So what do we get? 40 or so paper bags of dirt stashed in a bank vault, and a damn cliff hangar of some sort which vaguely states that we should stay tuned for more on that one...
Oh yeah, and that so called "SMOKING GUN EVIDENCE" ? Turns out it was nothing more than the blow up of the General Ramey memo in the Roswell newspaper photo, which we (who follow this stuff) HAVE KNOWN ABOUT FOR YEARS. Well, we will give credit to SCI FI for at least spotlighting this in front of hopefully what will be a bigger and newer audience, but that is the only redeeming aspect of this shameless piece of hype which promised to expose the truth, and did exactly what everyone hates about the UFO scenario in general.... "It promises, but does not deliver."
