Robots, Androids and the Real Visitors

A classic in UFO literature is The Edge of Reality by Allen Hynek and Jacques Vallee, published in 1975. In chapter nine, Brainstorming, they discuss various UFO scenarios and hypotheses. Here (p. 252) Vallee mention one of the really intriguing riddles regarding close encounters and different types of entities: ”Vallee: "How can they breath our air? How come there are men, ordinary men with them? There are cases in France where witnesses have seen two dwarves coming our of a landed object, and one man with them."

The usual and popular media image of a alien visitor is a small, spindly creature with large black eyes, often referred to as the Greys. But are these entities the real visitors? Have both the public and many ufologists been mislead in assuming the Greys to be actual and intelligent visitors? Today there appears to be a re-evaluation of the human-looking aliens as the real visitors. A theory or idea shared by both critical UFO investigators and contactees. ”The Strange ”Greys” of Ufology: Are They Manufactured?” is the title of Nick Redfern´s recent article in Mysterious Universe, May 22, 2020. If Redfern checked some of the old contactee stories he would find that robots were described already in the 1950s: 

"Also in this room was a robot instrument which I was cautioned not to describe. I had noticed a miniature version of this robot in the Scout."
(George Adamski, Inside the Space Ships, 1955, p. 60).

"Each pilot room has a robot. these, working singly or together, can fully govern the course of the ship, as well as warn us of any approaching danger." (Ibid. p. 77).
"True, they have robots to do much of the heavy work that once was done by manual labour." (George Adamski, Flying Saucers Farewell, 1961, p. 85).

In 2008 I investigated a very fascinating close encounter and contact case in Sweden which probably involved a robot. The percipient Jorge Z. was born in Honduras, 47 years old with a wife and four kids. On January 20, 2008 Jorge Z. is travelling in his car a few miles east of Norrtälje, north of Stockholm. Suddenly a bright light appears over the road and the wooded area. The light is a combination of yellow, white and blue and is moving quickly. Jorge assumes it could be a chopper. Suddenly there is a voice in his head ordering him to keep on driving. The voice is very clear: "move to the left", "continue". After a couple of miles Jorge enter a place called Norrtäljeviken and he parks the car. Standing beside the car he can hear a sound like a generator. Looking up he observeras a saucer shaped, silver coloured object with a light in the middle. Jorge becomes very frightened and says to himself: "A flying saucer. that´s not possible. God help me".

A light appears at the bottom om the object, shining down on the ground. In this beam an entity is floating down and start approaching the car. The entity makes a halt about 8-10 meters from Jorge and the beam is retracted into the object. Jorge tries to run but he is paralysed. The entity approaches and Jorge notice its large dark, oblique eyes. It is not more than 140-150 centimeter with a large head and long, skinny arms with four fingers. No nose, only two small holes and no ears. The entity is completely naked, hairless and lacking genitals. Jorge compared the feet to that of a duck.
"Don´t be afraid, I will not hurt you", says the entity and put his "hand" on Jorge´s shoulder. The hand feels exceptionally hard.” A short conversation ensues:

Miguel: My God, who are you? A god or an angel?
Entity: "We are neither Gods nor angels. My name is Horos and I come from Reticulum 4, a planet very far from earth. A long time ago you were chosen for this contact. Some of your ancestors were in contact with us and now is the time to bring a message to humanity. You can´t reach all the world but many people. There are already people who have been prepared to help you and with their help you will deliver the message."

Jorge ask if he can touch the entity? Horos says yes and Jorge touches his arm which is warm and feels like hard flesh without a skeleton. After about twenty minutes Jorge is ordered to come back the next day at three p.m. The object appears again and the entity is lifted up in the beam. The object disappears very quick, like turning of a light. When Jorge arrives at home he is very upset and find it difficult to sleep. On January 21 he return to the same spot. This time an object comes up out of the water in Norrtäljeviken. Three entities leave the object to meet Jorge. Besides Horos there is now Ziros and Andrak. They want to help earth humanity and claim there soon will be an open contact. Jorge is requested to contact church leaders to explain that they are here. After a rather long conversation the three entities board the object again and it disappears in the water.

An interesting case where bio-androids are mentioned is the abduction experience of Amauri Rivera of Puerto Rico. He was abducted from his car by dwarfish entities in May 1988. When he regained consciousness Amauri found himself in an unknown room together with 15 people, all Hispano-Americans. Magdalena Del Amo-Freixedo documented what happened next in an article published in Flying Saucer Review, vol. 39, no. 1, Spring 1994: "Facing them was a tall, dark man of human appearance. His hair was long, down to the shoulders, and his complexion dusky. He would, says the witness, have passed anywhere unnoticed. This man said that he was human, just like them, who had come here from another planet in our galaxy. On either side of him there was a dwarf, similar to those we have already described. Almost all of those present in the chamber gazed with horror at the two creatures... He (the man) seized hold of its (dwarf) face with one hand and turned it to right and left, at the same time saying that they should have no fear of these entities, as they were biological robots created by them for certain kinds of work, and that they were quite inoffensive." (p. 10)

When Glenn Steckling visited Sweden in 2018 I asked him of his view of this aspect of the UFO enigma:
Håkan Blomqvist: What do you think about greys, abductions. What is behind all this. 
Glenn Steckling: In 1961 this field became divergent or went in separate directions. In 1961 after we had a flood of landings on this planet and the forces that control this world became very anxious. This was a psychological manipulation by the forces that use the politics of this world to keep people in a fearful state. The purpose of this type of rumor mongering is to keep the people fearful. All these craft carry a robot. The newer ships have no robots but androids. The androids only have four fingers and they can only do what they are programmed to do. Some of these sightings could be robots or androids.

Former George Adamski co-worker Carol Honey also mentioned robots in one of his later articles:
”The non-human looking, referred to as ”greys”, etc., are actually androids, purposely made to look different so as to eliminate the concern and confusion caused by human looking creations in the past. The nostrils, ears, or  mouth, shaped as in a human, are not necessary, as they would be in humans such as us. These androids perform the ”dirty work” and the labor involved in operating the spacecraft on their various missions throughout the solar systems.”
(Carol Honey, How It All Started,, no. 243, December 2001).

Carol Honey mention confusion caused by human looking androids, and of course this is certainly a subject full of confusing encounters. If benevolent and culturally advanced visitors use robots and adroids so could evil or dangerous visitors and our own Messengers of Deception, black project operatives from various highly secret intelligence groups. The Danish Adamski co-worker Hans C Petersen claimed to have discussed the robot issue several times with Adamski. In an article, The Sinister Forces From Space, he presents a somewhat more complicated view of the problem: "... the americans have constructed their own flying saucers, and that they fly just as if they were real space vehicles. Also, that they use the same propulsion system as do the visitors, and that these man-made vehicles are manned with robots - small grey men - all alike and produced alike in American research centers, as copies of the creatures found in the "crashed" saucers from outer space."
(UFO Contact Newsletter, no. 1, 1993, p. 9).

Maybe some of the enigmatic Men In Black reported are actually androids used by some not very nice group of visitors? John Keel, who investigated this aspect of the UFO enigma and had several encounters of his own presented different theories, during his lifetime, about the MIB. In 1967 he regarded them as definitely a menace, as revealed in a letter, July 18, 1967, to Jim and Coral Lorenzen of APRO: ”The MIB represent a very large terrestrial group who are allied with a very hostile UFO group. They are not connected with any goverment in any way… The people I am concerned with are Androids… manifactured entities controlled by a distant and unknown master… they are quite stupid in many respects.”

There is also a reference to androids in psychic Ingo Swann´s autobiography Penetration: The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy, published in 1998. After a very strange experience in a Hollywood supermarket where Ingo and a friend observed and received unusual psychic "vibrations" from a woman with black hair and eyes covered by purple sunglasses, Ingo and his friend decided to mention this encounter during a dinner with psychiatrist Dr. Shafica Karagulla and her friend Viola Petitt Neal.. During a dinner they discuss ET civilizations infiltrating Earth:
"Viola Petitt Neal: There are a lot of THEM, you know, and many are bio-androids."
Shafica Karagulla: "They´re dangerous, you know, and they realize that Earth psychics are their only enemies. Be careful Ingo, be careful."
(Ingo Swann, Penetration, p. 29).

I wouldn´t recommend delving too deeply into these aspects of the UFO enigma if you don´t have both feet firmly on the ground. It is hardly for the faint hearted or naive believer. Paranoia can easily become your next door neighbor. How about stamp collecting instead? Still, the original Vallee question is certainly valid: "How come there are men, ordinary men with them?"
