Why we imagine aliens the way we do – Alien UFO Sightings

When you picture an alien, what do you see?

No one really knows what aliens look like, but we all have similar ideas about them. It’s often a creature with a big head, long arms and legs, and big, buggy eyes. We see these common images of aliens depicted in movies, books, and on TV shows — which are made by us.

Science fiction stories often explore the relationship between humans and aliens. So we find extraterrestrial creatures endowed with relatable human features. According to Charley Henley, a VFX supervisor who worked on Ridley Scott’s Alien series, “A lot of [Scott’s] designs are tied in with the human anatomy, and I think that is the common theme. We put a lot of humans into the aliens.” In our stories, we naturally anthropomorphize these creatures — so they end up looking, acting, and feeling just like us.

But when you talk to scientists actually looking for extraterrestrial life — and not imagining it — it’s a whole different story. Andrew Siemion, the director of SETI Research Center at UC Berkely, believes that if there’s any life out in space that’s similar to humans, they’d be using technology in a similar way as we do. So he and his colleagues conduct astronomy experiments to detect signs of technology out in space. But that doesn’t mean he has a better idea of what these creatures would look like. He said:

It’s science fiction. I mean, as of now, hopefully, someday we will detect life on another world — maybe many examples of life on many worlds — and then we can have more accurate science fiction. But I think as of now, a guess of a science fiction novelist is as good as a scientist. Science fiction is one expression of our profound sense of awe and wonder about whether we are alone in the universe.

Timothy Good (clip) on Eisenhower’s Alien Meeting

Timothy Good (clip) on Eisenhower’s Alien Meet & Greet

Well once again this is a rant about the MSM or rather about the sheer incompetence that is once again being passed off as journalism, as you may have guessed by the title it’s to do with the (dated) Timothy Good comments that have recently been widely reported regarding the Eisenhower ‘meet & greet(s)’ that allegedly occurred back in the 1950’s.

Out of all of the News websites that recently re-ran the article it was evident that not one of them had seen the interview (or at the very least had bothered to take notes) due to the error in -amongst many other things- the dates that Good claimed the ‘meeting’s occurred and in fact the only reason they were writing about it was due to Good’s credentials which apparently they themselves had inflated to make the story newsworthy. (Good states 1955 but obviously most of the SERP’s return 1954 as the main event and this is why I presume every MSM report wrongly attributed the date in a direct quote of Good).

Eisenhower Portrait

The Huffington Post was the first to write about it on February 14th (2012) stating their source as “SWNS” (Small World News Service) writing that:

The 34th President of the United States met the extra terrestrials at a remote air base in New Mexico in 1954, according to lecturer and author Timothy Good.


But the claims from Mr Good, a former U.S. Congress and Pentagon consultant, are the first to be made publicly by a prominent academic.

Speaking [sic] Frank Skinner’s BBC2 current affairs show Opinionated…


Asked why the aliens don’t go to somebody ‘important’ like Barack Obama, he said: “Well, certainly I can tell you that in 1954, President Eisenhower had three encounters, set up meetings with aliens, which took place at certain Air Force bases including Holloman Air Force base in New Mexico.”


And then the same report appeared (word-for-word) a couple of hours later in the Daily Mail then in the Express etc. etc.All of which then led to the -almost- identical article being circulated and subsequently boosted Good’s appearance on the show to that of ‘guest’ rather than just the audience member that he was.

Anyway here’s the audio from Skinner’s “Opinionated” show which first aired back on 1st December 2011:

And the following is from Good’s personal website:

Timothy Good – UFO Authority

“He was invited for discussions at the Pentagon in 1998, and at the headquarters of the French Air Force in 2002. He has also acted as consultant for several U.S. Congress investigations.”


As mentioned at the top of this post the recent furore is actually concerning a clip that was first broadcast on December 1st 2011, a fact that is never mentioned.  In fact not ONE of the recent reports that I could got any of the facts correct, right down to the year that Good claimed the incident/s occurred. Also It has been said that I may just be a little cynical but I personally don’t consider, “Invited for discussions at the Pentagon” to be quite the same as, “Pentagon consultant” which is what is claimed in the subsequent media reports, but to paraphrase Quixote, perhaps I’m just not well-versed in the art of adventures…..
I should perhaps mention that this has absolutely nothing to do with Timothy Good or what he believes, although it’s fair to say his personal views directly contradict my beliefs and especially so with this recent episode. Although credit where credit is due as Good evidently has a sense of humour as he described himself as a, “Professional fiddler” on Skinner’s show which is massively underselling himself as he’s a very gifted violinist. However, I fear that Good is destined for infamy akin to that of Greer if he continues to promote the ability to establish telepathic contact at will with off-world entities.

Anyhoo, let’s have a quick look at what is actually alleged regarding Eisenhower & the aliens as it’s claimed that the first meeting was at Edwards AFB where Eisenhower met with a couple of Nordic aliens who warned him that the grey aliens (who were allegedly being tracked circling the equator at a very high orbit) were not to be trusted. Then, in what would soon become the mantra of the contactees, requested that all nuclear weapons should be disarmed and we should stop draining the planets natural resources, we should all live in harmony & stop killing each other etc. etc. They also refused to provide any kind of advanced technology stating that we as a species were too intent on harming each other and any alien-tech they provided would ultimately be used to wage war on each other (paraphrased).

Then a few months later the ubiquitous greys turned up, offered some alien technology and Eisenhower promptly signed off on a deal allegedly allowing the greys to abduct a very small number of society providing that all of details were handed over, well, the story goes that the abductions were soon in the tens of thousands and the rest as they say, is history…..

It certainly appears that Exopolitician extraordinaire Michael Salla is almost single-handedly responsible for perpetuating (NOT originating) these rumours concerning the two main alleged meetings, the first one was in February 1954 (Edwards) and the second one in February of 1955 (Holloman) although there were allegedly other meetings during the interim and after Holloman but the specifics of these are sketchy at best (hmm, I wonder why?) Incidentally I discussed/debated Well this is certainly the case regarding the 1954 meeting but from what I can tell it wasn’t until 2007 (after Art Campbell published his research) that Salla also started championing the 1955 Holloman AFB meeting and incorporating it into his personal UFO-lore, the following is an email Salla sent to his Yahoo Exopolitics group back in June 2007:

From: Dr Michael Salla
Date: 06/15/07 14:11:46
To: exopolitics@yahoogroups.com
Subject: [exopolitics] President Eisenhower’s Meeting at Holloman AFB with Extraterrestrials

Aloha all, I’m delighted to announce that more research has been conducted on President Eisenhower’s secret visit to Holloman AFB in 1955 to have a meeting with extraterrestrials. Art Campbell has investigated the case and found documentation to support Eisenhower’s plane (Columbine III – aka Airforce One) secretly traveling to Holloman on February 11, 1955 soon after his Feb 10 arrival in Georgia for a ‘recreational’ trip. He has also interviewed three witnesses to help corroborate this event.

This is important corroboration of the secret galactic diplomacy conducted between President Eisenhower and extraterrestrial visitors.

In peace,
Michael Salla, Ph.D.

If you look at whom Salla cites as independently verifying his version of events then, well, the list speaks for itself populated as it is with the likes of Corso, Cooper, Schneider, Dean, Lear etc. Then of course there’s other lesser-known personalities, for example have a look at the following by Salla:

Gerald Light’s Letter That Eisenhower Met With Extraterrestrials

The first public source alleging a meeting with extraterrestrials was Gerald Light who in a letter dated April 16, 1954 to Meade Layne, the then director of Borderland Sciences Research Associates (now Foundation), claimed he was part of a delegation of community leaders to an alleged meeting with extraterrestrials at Edwards Air Force Base.

In a subsequent article, Meade Layne described Light as a “gifted and highly educated writer and lecturer”, who was skilled both in clairvoyance and the occult. Light was a well-known metaphysical community leader in the Southern California area. The alleged purpose of him and others on the delegation was to test public reaction to the presence of extraterrestrials.

Just prior to this Salla cites Bill Moore’s research as a verification source for the 1954 meeting yet this is what Moore had to say about Gerald Light:

“The rumor of the president’s alleged visit to Edwards is not a new one. UFO contactee fringe writers began making unsupported claims about it less than two months after Ike’s trip.

So did a bizarre fellow from the Hollywood hills named Gerald Light, who, in an April 16, 1954 letter to the head of a Southern California metaphysical organization, actually claimed to have been at Edwards where he saw Ike, the saucers and the aliens. Light’s letter has been controversial for years and copies of it have turned up in all sorts of places, including the National Enquirer.

Investigation into Mr. Light’s background, however, turned up the fact that he was an elderly mystic who believed that psychic “out-of-body-experiences” were a logical extension of the reality of life and should be treated as such. In the final analysis, Light’s alleged visit to Edwards was just such an experience.”

Whilst Moore isn’t generally recognised as a bastion of truth by the UFO community due solely to his 1989 Mufon admission over the Bennewitz affair I personally don’t see this as a valid reason to disregard every other piece of his research, although it’s also worth mentioning that Moore’s earlier research is usually credited as being the strongest indication that Eisenhower did in fact go missing during his 1954 sojourn, presidentialufo.com writes that:

The story about Eisenhower’s February 1954 trip to Palm Springs  for a winter holiday, and his subsequent late Saturday night disappearance, has fueled rumors that Eisenhower traveled to nearby Edwards Air Force Base to meet with aliens. One of the best recounting of this rumor was done by William Moore a prominent California researcher who traveled to the Eisenhower Library to do research and actually interviewed the wife of one of the key witnesses to the story.

But whether this was to the dentist as official records show or to Edwards AFB, well as always I positively encourage the reader to arrive at their own conclusions…..

Remember Those Phony Alien Mummies Courtesy of Serial Hoaxer Maussan?

Back in June 2017 I blogged about the newest hoax by serial hoaxer Jaime Maussan — the “discovery” of three-fingered alien mummies in Peru. Maussan of course was one of the people behind the ridiculous Roswell slides. I suggested at the time the same hoaxing techniques that seemed to obviously (at least to me and a few other folks I know) be behind the “demon fairy” silliness. That is, the key is what one would find under the plaster of the mummies — a hack job, literally, where parts of more than one human Peruvian mummy were altered and re-assembled so that an X-Ray would make it seem that the odd result (e.g., three fingers) looked like a genuine ET biological entity. This Live Science post is a good indication that some investigators are following that trajectory. It’s entirely plausible, but don’t expect Jaime to ever allow the sort of inspection that could verify that method to ever happen. That would ruin his gig.

The post Remember Those Phony Alien Mummies Courtesy of Serial Hoaxer Maussan? appeared first on Dr. Michael Heiser.

after five o’clock. It had become dusk by then and we were sitting on a small pier on the bank, fishing out into the river, when this noise–a hissing or zipping-like sound–attracted my attention. It was just like air or maybe steam escaping from a pipe. Anyway, I turned around, I saw these two blue lights. When I saw them, well, the sound seemed to go away. They were real close together and they were either flashing or pulsating not over 30 to 40 yards behind us. Almost as big as a car headlight and real bright.

Stephen Hawking Confirms Space Object May Be Alien Spacecraft

Stephen Hawking Confirms Space Object May Be Alien Spacecraft

Hawking is leading an investigation into whether the first object ever to arrive from OUTSIDE our solar system is a spaceship from an alien civilisation.

     The first mysterious object to reach our solar system was originally thought to be a comet or an asteroid from within the system.

But, scientists realised it was neither and had travelled unimaginable disatances through interstellar space at almost 200,000 mph.

By Matt Drake

Now, a scientific body led by Stephen Hawking is now trying to decipher whether the “cigar-shaped” object is an alien probe or a previously unseen natural phenomenon.
