The Blue John case and covert activities

In his groundbreaking 1983 book George Adamski – The Untold Story, co-written with Lou Zinsstag, Timothy Good refer briefly to an old friend he had known for a long time who had met the same or a similar group of benevolent visitors as George Adamski. Although he had not at the time permission to reveal the name of the witness, nor the details of the experiences he stated that it was ”for me the most reliable contact case I have yet encountered” (p. 195).

In a letter to Timothy Good in 1984 I asked why he regarded her as reliable: "Re. my contactee friend. Why reliable? I have known her since 1952 and can vouch for her integrity. She has never tried to capitalise on the story, and, indeed, is unable to discuss all the details, due partly the the ET`s ability to control her memory of certain things they told her, and also because she was in the Maquis (French Resistance) in the last war, and thus is able to keep some information to herself. I hope one day to be able to publish the story" (Letter August 28, 1984).

The witness in this contact story died in 1995 and subsequently Timothy Good could publish all the details in his 1998 book Alien Base, although he didn´t reveal the full name of the witness, only calling her Joelle, ”because she was reluctant even to have the story published  after her death” (p. 248). But already in 1989 I was informed of her full name, Mrs Joelle Marchemont, by ufologist Norman Oliver, who had also been involved in the case (Letter, September 1, 1989). Timothy told me later that ”I introduced several ufologists to ”Pixie” (as I called her), including Norman Oliver” (email, March 23, 2008).

The nine pages covering the so-called Blue John case have been published on the internet, so here is just a short summary of the story:
Joelle was born in St Petersburg, Russia in 1914. After the war she worked in Paris and later moved together with her husband and two daughters, Frederique and Isabelle, to London. In September 1963 Joelle was in the Sheffield area conducting a house-to-house field survey for a market research company. In one of the houses Joelle visited she noticed an unusually large amount of modern-looking gadgets, including a large radio transceiver. The lady in the house, Rosamund,  explained that her husband was a scientist and radio amateur. When Rosamund briefly left the room Joelle heard a message in English from the radio: ”Will be at Blue John tomorrow 4.30 p.m. – Mark”. She wrote down the message but when Rosamund came back she was only informed that message had come through. This obviously chocked Rosamund. Because of her background in the French resistance during the war Joelle suspected she had uncovered an international spy-ring and decided to go to the Blue John caves at the time mentioned.

On Monday September 16, 1963 she went by car to the this area and parked at a vantage spot overlooking the valley – and waited. At 4.30 p.m. Joelle noticed a brilliant light in the sky which came to rest several hundred yards from her position. The glow ceased and a disc-shaped aircraft appeared instead, landing on tripod landing legs. A man in a one-piece suit stepped out of the craft and simultaneously a man appeared coming from a car parked nearby. Joelle recognized the car as the one that had been parked outside Rosamund´s house. The two men greeted each other warmly and walked towards the car which drove away. The craft began to glow, lift off from the ground shooting off at a fantastic speed.

At that time Joelle did not accept the existence of flying saucers and believed the craft to be some sort of secret Russian aircraft. She decided to go back to Rosamund´s house to find out more and then perhaps report the incident to the police. When she knocked at the door the scientist husband, in the story named Jack, opened the door but was reluctant to let Joelle in. At that point Mark, now in terrestrial clothes, interjected ”that´s all right, let her in”. Joelle tried to present a cover story that she needed some more answers for her field survey. Mark understood that this was a lie and said: ”Why don´t you tell us the real reason why you are here?...You came here because you saw my craft and wanted to find out what was going on”.

Joelle was ”let in” on the truth and spent a large part of the night talking with the visitor. She gradually accepted that Mark was indeed a man from another planet. For the next fifteen months Joelle had several meetings with Mark and another visitor, Val. Two times they met in Joelle´s flat in London. These men claimed they were secretly working together with a team of scientists from several nations. At one occasion Joelle was invited to inspect one of their craft that had landed close to the Welsh border. She helped the visitors in a number of ways. Val and Mark were extremely refined, fair-skinned with perfect teeth, very kind and perfect gentlemen with lots of humour.
In 1967, three years after the last meeting with Mark and Val, Joelle claimed to have been visited by two men from the Home Office in London. They wanted to know about the disappearance of Jack and Rosamund and som other scientists. The men were aware of the contact story but Joelle refused to answer some of their questions. Neither did she tell all she knew to Timothy Good. One of the things mentioned by Mark and Val was that their group would intervene in the event of a nuclear catastrophe, if it threatened to destroy our planet. She was also informed that we are spiritual beings, surviving death. The experiences with Mark and Val remained a treasured and vivid memory for Joelle all her life.

To my knowledge not much has been written about this extraordinary story, nor has any ufologist tried to follow up on the case, with the exception of Norman Oliver. In the British UFO magazine Gemini, vol. 1, no. 3, July-September 1972, pp. 9-13 Oliver did write a summary of the case with a few added details. The lack of follow-up was explained to me in a letter from Norman Oliver: ”To the best of my knowledge she only repeated her claim of the Blue John events to three or four people and specifically requested that it not be checked out further.” (Undated letter, September 1991).
In an earlier letter Norman Oliver did mention some interesting facts not presented in his article: ”No follow-up was possible as those concerned was said by ”Joan” (Joelle-HB) to have left the country soon afterwards, as indeed she did herself: an interesting point, incidentally, was that she herself held no nationality. The area of the occurrence was visited on several occasions and there would seem to be no obvious reason, son far as the terrain is concerned, why events might not have occurred as she stated…” (Letter, September 1, 1989).

The problem with this case is that there is only one witness, Mrs. Joelle Marchemont, and very little circumstantial evidence to support the story. But in his article Norman Oliver mention one intriguing detail. ”Joan had subsequent meetings with all three (visitors-HB), but didn´t give further details beyond saying that this spaceman was allegedly for sending another to see Waveney Girvan, then editor of Flying Saucer Review, shortly before his death… It was not until 1970 that I was told, quite out of the blue by a speaker who had come down to a Kensington meeting, of a luncheon engagement kept with Waveney Girvan some weeks only before his untimely death. He had then told his two guests that he had been visited by a man who alleged he was an extra-terrestrial, and who had related the Blue John episode to him… To me, this was a most remarkable coincidence unless, of course, a ”contrived” one with the object of perpetrating a hoax. This seems a little unlikely to me however, and would I am sure, if it were the case, have been discovered by Waveney could he have continued investigations… One of those in whom Waveney confided details of his visitor is a contributor in this issue of Gemini; the other is equally well-known.”

There have been several cases of ”exchange of personnel” with UFOs and cars involved. John Keel, R. Perry Collins, Ardy Sixkiller Clarke a.o. have documented such stories, as I mentioned in my blog entry UFOs and covert activities. Based on the data we have there appears to be several different type of visitors as ”aliens among us”, possibly with different agendas. But the alien visitors who Joelle Marchemont became involved with obviously were benevolent and were here to help this unhappy little planet. At the same time they were pretty realistic about our future. They once remarked to Joelle: ”What a beautiful planet. Such a pity your´re destroying it” (Timothy Good, Alien Base, p. 256).

Planetary and interplanetary guardians

In a recent email from the New Zeeland ufologist Bryan Dickeson he mentioned a most interesting observation:
”In 2000, I spoke to a "Probus" group (for retired business people) in Bankstown, Sydney, while involved with UFOR(NSW) -- about UFOs.  I had referred to foo-fighters during World War 2, but had not mentioned the Middle East at all.  Afterwards I was approached by a 65(plus)-year-old gentleman who told me he had been in the Six-Day War as the Commander of a squadron of six Israeli tanks speeding across the Sinai Desert towards the Suez Canal.  He said that they were always aware of these unusual, very bright, star-like objects that hovered all around, a few degrees above the horizon through their entire campaign:

"We knew they weren't ours, or Arabic, or Russian, or American.  No-one knew whose they were, but they were always there, watching, and they were visible on radar.  They never got involved, or made any contact with us, or retaliated in any way, they just watched.  They were seen in all our battle zones throughout the Middle East." ” (Email from Bryan Dickeson, February 14, 2017)
This information correspond very well with the findings of American ufologist Robert Hastings who have for many years documented UFO activity at American nuclear weapons sites. Hastings has interviewed more than 150 military veterans involved in UFO incidents at various U.S. missile sites, much of this information presented in his book, published in 2008,  UFOs and Nukes. Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons sites.

Robert Hastings

After many years of research Hastings have arrived at these rather astounding conclusions:
”After researching the UFO phenomenon for 39 years, I must conclude that the technology involved is so advanced that a human origin for it can be automatically ruled out in almost every bona fide sighting case… In my view, the essential message conveyed by our visitors is this: As long as nuclear weapons exist, they remain a potential threat to the future of mankind and to the planet itself. Get rid of them! To make their point, those aboard the UFOs periodically monitor and sometimes interfere with the operational readiness of the missiles.” (Interview on Robert Hastings website).

Anyone with basic knowledge of UFO history will notice that this is almost exactly the message given to the first generation UFO contactees of the 1950s, but this time concluded from empirical evidence. Extraterrestrial visitors arrived as guardians to our planet because of the danger of nuclear war and total destruction of our planet. This was the message of George Van Tassel, Orfeo Angelucci, George Adamski, Daniel Fry, Howard Menger a.o. One of the early UFO books was named The Coming of the Guardians, written by BSRA director Meade Layne. This message was delivered to George Van Tassel on July 18, 1952: ”Your materialists will disagree with our attemp to warn mankind. Rest assured they shall cease to explode life giving atoms, or we shall eliminate all projects connected with such. Our missions are peaceful, but this condition occurred before in this solar system and the planet Lucifer was torn to bits. We are determined that it shall not happen again. The governments of the planet Shan have conceded that we are of a higher intelligence. They must concede also that we are of a higher authority.” (George Van Tassel, I Rode a Flying Saucer, 2nd ed. 1952, p. 32).

In the first volume of his diaries, Forbidden Science. Journals 1957 - 1969, Jacques Vallee discuss the theory of  planetary guardians: ”Has the future spiritual state of man already been achieved by some individuals? Have certain gifted men already achieved contact, on some plane, with those who may be guiding our psychic evolution?” (p. 80). As a student of Hermeticism, Vallee was certainly aware of that this theory is a basic fact in the Esoteric Tradition. Mankind at its present level is only a step in the evolution of consciousness. Their is a fifth kingdom in nature which we will slowly become aware of during the next centuries. Some representatives of this kingdom are living on our planet, bound together in an secret organization, sometimes called the Planetary Hierarchy and which I have referred to as the Higher Intelligence Agency (HIA).

According to esoteric history this organization decided, during a conclave in 1775, that knowledge of their existence on this planet should be made public, beginning in 1875 with the founding of The Theosophical Society in New York. The decision was not unanimous but  regarded as a test to observe how humanity would react to such a new and revolutionary fact. The adept M. explained the problem of this ”disclosure” to his correspondent, journalist Alfred Percy Sinnett: ”… we do not wish Mr.Hume or you to prove conclusively to the public that we really exist. Please realize the fact that so long as men doubt there will be curiosity and enquiry, and that enquiry stimulates reflection which begets effort; but let our secret be once thoroughly vulgarized and not only will sceptical society derive no great good but our privacy would be constantly endangered and have to be continually guarded at an unreasonable cost of power.” (The Mahatma Letters to A.P. Sinnett, Letter no. 29, p. 224).

During the Second World War the forces of destruction was so close to get the upper hand that the planetary guardians asked for assistance from the interplanetary guardians. And this assistance came in large numbers. What happened behind the scenes and details of the struggle is told in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy by Alice Bailey:
April 1935: "... the regenerative forces of Those extraplanetary Beings Who offer Their Help at this time." (p. 25)
April-May 1940: "Hovering today within the aura of our planet are certain great spiritual Forces and Entities, awaiting the opportunity to participate actively in the work of world redemption, re-adjustment and reconstruction.... the waiting extra-planetary Forces." (p. 222-223)
April 1943: "Certain great Energies of extra-planetary significance Who stand ready to intervene..." (p. 392).

That there was co-operation between the planetary and interplanetary guardians was confirmed by that extraordinary organization Borderland Sciences Research Association (BSRA) in 1951. Their motto at the time is interesting: ”Serving Higher Intelligence since 1945”.  Here is a quote from a Seance Memoranda From the Inner Circle, November 28, 1951: ”There is a certain secret work going on at present between the Etherians and certain high earth authorities (You understand, I suppose, that I do not use the word ”high” in the usual sense. I am referring to those belonging to some of the secret Lodges on Earth). This work has to do with the great possibility of the Earth´s destruction… These men have landed in Australia in a secret landing field. They have not only been to Scotland, but to high authorities in England, and to a few of your men and women here of high standing (I refer to the secret Orders).” (p. 30)

Meade Layne, founder of BSRA

Information about co-operation between the planetary and interplanetary guardians was also given to some of the first generation UFO contactees:
”The spacecraft that are appearing today are under the direction of the hierarchy of their own planets and are working in close harmony with the masters and mystery schools of the hierarchy on Earth… Thus we see that there is a definite connection between the mystery schools and the UFO. They are really one and the same force in operation… the UFO are in our skies, and we are talking with space me who tell us the same thing that the mentors of this planet have been telling us for many centuries.” (George Hunt Williamson and John McCoy, UFOs Confidential, p. 70)

Because of the critical situation for our planet the interplanetary guardians, in co-operation with the planetary guardians, made a psychological experiment and information effort in the 1950s, to make the general public aware of their existence and why they are here. The experiment was soon terminated but the outcome was a greater awareness and expanding consciousness of our multiverse and its inhabitants. After this experiment they choose to work covertly, behind the scenes. This unhappy planet Earth is today in a very critical condition. Our survival as a kingdom in nature is still at stake. Whether the forces of destruction or construction will win this battle is an open question.

American contactee Daniel Fry was in a very straightforward manner told of our choice:
”There is nothing that is intrinsically wrong with your material science. It will progress and expand to horizons as yet undreamed of, if only your people will provide a spiritual foundation capable of supporting it.
And if they do not? I asked.
Then your civilization will go down, Alan replied slowly.
It will destroy itself in a holocaust which will leave few survivors. Those who do survive will have neither the ability nor the desire to rebuild their science…
Your race and your culture, however, are not doomed to extinction. They may continue upon their upward course until they have left this danger behind them forever.
The choice, you see, is yours.
There is little doubt, I said, which choice the people would make if they had sufficient understanding and they were aware of  the constructive and destructive alternatives between which they should choose.
Precisely, Alan replied. That is why we are here, and that is why you are here.”
(Daniel Fry, The White Sands Incident, Best Books Inc., 1966, pp. 83-84)

A unique document

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic". This classic quote from science fiction author Arthur C Clarke often comes to my mind when studying and documenting UFO close encounter experiences. There are literally thousands of cases where the percipient relates that the UFO or alien beings simply disappeared into thin air. A good example is the observation in Sweden 1970 by witnesses Rolf Gohs and Peter Ingemark, who were very perplexed that the craft they observed suddenly disappeared - like you switch off a lamp.

The object that suddenly disappeared before Gohs and Ingemark

That an advanced civilization can use several means to effect this phenomenon was reported by many of the first generation physical contactees in the 1950s. It could be done by a small technical device, ordinary materialization or holographic technology. George Van Tassel mentioned several of these experiences in his books and newsletter Proceedings. By referring to early contactees like George Van Tassel I am expressing somewhat heretical views in mainstream ufology. So as not to confuse new blog readers, below is a short summary of the Esoteric Intervention Theory I have advanced in books, articles and blog entries.

Some of the physical contactees of the 1950s were involved in a cultural and psychological influence test. An experiment implemented by a group of benevolent alien visitors, earth based or extraterrestrial, a group with access to “vimana” technology. This test was done in co-operation with the Higher Intelligence Agency (HIA), the custodians of the Ancient Wisdom, using a new type of phenomena as attraction as they used spiritualist phenomena in connection with the founding of the Theosophical Society in 1875. Involved in this test was a.o. George Adamski, Orfeo Angelucci, Paul M. Vest, George Van Tassel, Daniel Fry and Howard Menger.

During my many years of investigation and documentation of physical contactee cases I have found enough circumstantial empirical evidence to accept some of the 1950s contact experiences as valid and worthy of further study and analysis. "Scientific" ufology usually regard this group of contactees as charlatans and impostors but I am too old to play the ufologically correct game so instead I adhere to the motto of my old mentor, the late Riley Crabb, for many years director of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation (BSRA): "If I have one goal in life it is an uncompromising search for Truth, whatever that might be, and wherever it may lead."

There is still very little research accomplished nor understanding of what really happened during the first UFO era of the 1950s. Many silent contactees stayed silent and worked behind the scenes. This was mentioned by Rosemary M. Decker in her book 35 minutes to Mars, published by Galde Press, 2004. She became involved with several of the contactees of that time. In the chapter Reminiscences of George Adamski and Company she has this to say anent this era: "Sometimes, guests would report their own close encounters. Very few of them ever publicized their contacts, and so I learned early on that the vast majority of early contacts were never made public, even as today´s are not. Some of these people found ways to express appreciation and do something to benefit our troubled planet... This quiet, but profound, movement is still going on, not only among those pioneers who still remain with us, but among close-encountered people today." (p. 179)

In february 2015 I received a very unusual and fascinating document from an American friend, working behind the scenes with the same group of benevolent visitors who contacted a.o. George Adamski, George Van Tassel, Paul M. Vest and Howard Menger. It was three pages written on an old style typewriter. The headline said: "Impressions of C............. R............ Time: 1 p.m., July 10, 1953 Concerning: "John Doe" Wheeler". I have not been able to find out who C.R. is but presumable he or she was a Theosophist in the California area, because of information in the last sentence. My first thought was that it could have been journalist Manon Darlaine, who was very well informed about the California ufological underground scene in the 1950s, but I don´t know if she was a Theosophist?The papers give a lot of data on one the visitors, known as Mr. Wheeler, also described by George Van Tassel, Paul M. Vest and involved in the controversial Los Angeles Times affair with journalist Maurice Beam. Especially it address the controversial issue of organic versus non-organic beings.

Regarding Wheeler´s physical body it is stated that is "composed of a substance between protoplasm and a moderately stiff jelly... This person may be defined as "android electric energy" or "android energy", i.e., true Absolute energy in the semblance of a human form." Now compare this to the description of Mr. Wheeler (named Bill in his article) given by journalist Paul M. Vest: "I recalled how odd his hand had felt in my grasp. Looking at his hands I noticed that his fingers were long and tapering and so smooth that they seemed to be without joints or underlying bone structure."

From an esoteric viewpoint this comment is significant: "This person, at the moment, represents the level to which homo sapiens may evolve efter the passage of the next 1,000 years of our present progressively intensifying rate of evolution." As to Wheeler´s purpose here: "To link Earth with the planetary communication system".

In his book Venus Rising, author Raymond Andrew Keller II, documents an interesting conversation in the Spring of 1992 with ufologist and contactee Gabriel Green regarding bodies found in crashed saucers: "There were several remarkable differences, but not so outwardly noticeable. First they didn´t have the spiralled DNA strand found in nearly all indigenous life forms on Earth... their cells were actually composed of latticed crystalline hexagonal structures, similar in composition to the walls of their scout craft. It´s almost as though they were artificially constructed beings, designed to easily disassemble or reassemble. But their cells were silicon-based, rather than carbon-based..." p. 172)

A very similar description of space beings is given by the remarkable deep trance medium Mark Probert: "The blood nature of these beings is this: Carbon, Silicon, and Hydrogen. Especially is this true when they take on form so as to be seen by your eyes... Silicon and Carbon makes for strength, as in the case of diamonds, which do not deteriorate except under great heat. This makes these beings very durable. It is likely that in taking form such bodies could suffer such injury as to produce seeming death; but the entity concerned would simply withdraw and reconstruct its vehicle when and where desired." (Round Robin, vol. XIII, no. 1, May-June 1957, p. 13)

Irene and Mark Probert

My American friend who forwarded the Wheeler papers told me of his first experience of the visitors dissolving and forming their bodies, something described by many contactees:  "Before I had my first "visits", I was a total unbelieving skeptic. And I said to them at one point, "give me proof, personally", and I need never ask that again, that´s for sure. When you get proof my friend, you will feel like the world as you knew it has ended.... I remember the first time there was about 5 space people in xx (name withheld) house talking with her as I quietly watched, and then suddenly one of the men turned, looked directly at me, smiled gently, and then very slowly turned to the kitchen room wall and walked right through the wall! I watched this very closely as he then came back in... Let me tell you, those kind of incidents have a very deep and troubling affect on our minds because we cannot comprehend it." (Mail conversation February 25-26, 2012).
