"towards Stratford-on-Avon" :

{evidently selected by the flying saucer because of its having been hometown of William Shakespeare}

"they saw a shining disk in the sky. It ... darted around, '... to show off its abilities'. ... During the remainder to the drive, she had some novel insights into ... the Nature of Reality. ... That evening ...,

p. 120

she saw a strange figure that ... had dog[-] or goat-like legs. It was covered in silky, downy fur ... . It was unmistakeably humanoid ... .

It ... stared unblinkingly ...

{The eyen of Bharatiya (Hindu) deities likewise do not blink.}

with light, grape-green eyes that slanted upwards and had no pupils. ... It had pointed ears and a long muzzle."

"UFOs and mythological creatures often go together."

p. 121

"I picked up a book called The Goblin Universe by F. W. Holiday ... on ... 'the phantom menagerie' -- lake monsters, black dogs, Bigfoots ... . I opened it casually ..., ... found that it had opened at 'Pan the goatfooted god, ... when you encounter him.' ...

p. 122

In his 1968 book The Great Orm of Loch Ness ('orm' is Old English for worm ...) ... two fishermen who had seen the monster at close range ... described it as having a head like a bulldog, very wide and ugly, and a fringe of coarse black hair around its neck. ...

He was intrigued that lake -- and sea -- monsters seem so hard to photograph; he once had his finger on the button [of his camera] when the Loch Ness monster submerged. Could it be telepathic?

In 1968, ... he heard of a monster in Lough Fadda, Connemara, Ireland ... . ... . ... a man called Thomas Croker had published a book about Irish lake monsters, and ... sent it to Sir Walter Scott". "at Lough Nahooin, ... a water monster had again been reported by many witnesses."

p. 123

"Back in England, he investigated a haunted house, with a poltergeist that switched the light on and off, and footsteps that followed him around the house.

In 1969, while he was investigating Irish lake monsters, Ted [Holiday] went to stay at a haunted house on the Isle of Mull. He was awakened in the early morning by footsteps that ... had a kind of double echo. ... Instead, it took a short cut through the wall, and stood at the headboard of his bed ... and a heavy blow landed on the headboard of the bed."

"While he was investigating water monsters, ... In January 1966, ... he saw a luminous object skimming a hundred feet above the waves -- a spherical mass of white light that pulsated once every two seconds.

In October of that year he saw another UFO -- this time ... luminous ... orbiting against the night sky in a circle. Then a dark object came out ..., and beamed down a ray of intense ruby light on Ted ... . ...

A week later ... he saw a moving light in the sky ... . It was a flattened oval ..., golden in colour,

p. 124

and ... of some 'glowing, translucent substance'. ...

A Swedish journalist called Jan-Ove Sundberg had been wandering in the woods behind Loch Ness when he saw a strange craft in a clearing, and three odd-looking grey men, wearing ... divers' helmets. Then, with a shock, he realized that they were not human. They stepped in through a hatch, and the craft took off at great speed ... . ...

The Carys had seen golden, globelike objects over the loch. Ted was telling Cary and his wife Winifred about Sundberg ... . Mrs Cary warned him ... . As she spoke, there was a rushing sound like a tornado from

p. 125

outside, and a series of violent thuds ... . Then a beam of white light came through the window and focused on Ted's forehead. Mrs Cary screamed. ... Ted himself failed to see the beam of light. ...

The next morning, as Ted went out, he saw a man clad in black ... and goggles ... waiting for him. Deciding he might as well confirm ..., he ... heard a whistling sound; ... the man ... vanished."

"I had seen the typescript of The Goblin Universe soon after Ted completed it, in mid-1975, and ... he told me that

he had decided not to publish it.

{Did some goblin tell him not to dare publish it, as it told too much about the goblin-world?}

After his death, I persuaded an American publisher to bring it out".

pp. 126-9 flying saucers in Dyfedd

p. 126

"there was a sudden outbreak of UFO sightings and encounters not far from Ted's home in Haverfordwest. The first occurred ... February 1977, when a shining metal disk with a dome on top landed in the field ... . ... Thirteen days later, a UFO landed again in the same boggy field, and was seen by a schoolmaster and two canteen ladies. ...

A party of four in a car saw a bright lighted object with a dome on top; a crowd on the sea front saw a large orange light in the sky out at sea ...; and a woman looking out her window saw a silver object in a field, which vanished into thin air.

Then humanoid sightings began. A woman who ran a hotel heard a humming noise in the middle of the night, and saw a disk in a field, pulsating with blue light, then saw two very tall men in 'boiler suits', who seemed to be faceless; when she tried to call ..., she found she had no voice. ... Another family were startled when a red light filled the sky and their television set went off. ...

p. 127

Then came the strangest case of all : the events on Ripperston Farm ... near Haverfordwest. ... April 1977, ... a luminous yellow object ... was coming towards them, with a torchlike beam shining from its lower side. It passed overhead, did a U-turn and followed them. ... A few days later, ... another UFO ... about twenty feet across, silvery in colour, ... was standing on three legs. Then it took off towards the sea; ... there was a circular burnh mark. ... April, ... at the window, ... a face looking in ... belonged to a very tall man wearing a silver suit, with a kind of visor ... . ... Now the aliens began playing tricks. ...

p. 128

And, in his account of Ripperston Farm in The Unexplained, Hilary Evans mentions an 1897 book called Haunted Houses by John Ingrams, which mentions a farm at Birchen Bower, near Oldham in Lancashire, where a bizarre custom was observed. A former owner ... left instructions in her will that her body should be embalmed, and brought to the house every twenty-one years. Whenever this was done, the horses and cows would be found ... up in the hay loft ... . ...

p. 129

In The Dyfed Enigma (1979 -- coauthored with Randall Jones Pugh) Ted Holiday concluded that 'a force existed at Ripperston which was distinct from humans, but could use the potential of humans ... .' At the end of the book ... of the 'goblin universe' ... :

[quoted :] ... the phenomena ... cannot by any means ... occupy space in any meaningful sense of the term. When the humanoid beings ... appear ... they are manifestly neither physically solid nor organic in any known sense of the word."

pp. 130-1 John Keel's background

p. 130

"John Keel's father was a bandleader and crooner who lived in Hornell, New York; ... John -- born in 1930 -- went to live with his grandparents. ... When he was eleven or twelve, he experienced his own personal poltergeist. ... Then he discovered that he could ask simple questions -- by speaking them aloud -- and receive the correct answer in knocks. ...

At seventeen, he hitch-hiked the 400 miles to New York, and found his lodgings in Greenwich Village. There he made a scanty living writing articles with titles like 'Are You a Repressed Sex Fiend?' ...

Then ... he was drafted ... to Frankfurt, where he worked for American Forces radio. And there suddenly he achieved his first major success, with a Hallowe'en broadcast from Castle Frankenstein ... .

p. 131

The programme had much the same effect as Orson Welles's famous Martian invasion broadcast of October 1938. ... a convoy of military police with drawn guns converged on Castle Frankenstein. The result was that Keel was offered a civilian job after his national service was finished, and was allowed to ... roam around freely, making programmes -- Paris, Berlin, Rome, and eventually Egypt, where he made a Hallowe'en broadcast from the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid."

pp. 131-3 John Keel's book Jadoo

p. 131

"In 1954 ..., he resigned from his radio job ..., and went back to Cairo. ... The story of the next four years is told in

Jadoo (a Hindu word meaning magic) ... . ...

{Skt / 'cool', according to Monier-Williams cognate with Latin /gelu/ [which is actually cognate with Skt /jala/ 'fluid' instead] : although its propre etymon would to be */, which could regularly be aequivalent to Latin */ges-du/ (written */gestu/) instead; so that Latin /gesta/ 'acts', /gestire/ 'to gesture' could more actually (instead of Latin /gelu/) be its cognates.}

Yet Keel did encounter real magic. A sheik[h] called [<]Abd[>]ul Moh[.]ammed ... told him the precise amount of money he had in his pockets ... . The same old man ..., when the snake lashed out with its fangs, ...

p. 132

killed it merely by staring at it. ...

{It is an ability of a Bodish bla-ma to cause birds to drop dead by focusing the attention on them.} {Of course, in both cases, there must be a silent (or tacit) invocation of the deity who is performing the actual killing.}

It was on a trip to Aswan ... that Keel ... Above the dam, in broad daylight, ... saw a metallic disc, with a rotating outer rim, hovering for several minutes. ...

Crossing the Himalayas, Keel heard ... about the Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, and caught a glimpse of two of them ... . In Tibet, he ... in a roomful of [b]lama[-]s, ... heard one of them describe a fire in a northern village, which he had just seen by 'travelling clairvoyance' {remote viewing} --

the ability to project the mind to other places.

{This is "remote viewing" done by occupying (by the assistance from deities) invisible vantage-points at those sites.}

Later, Keel was able to check, and discover that the [b]lama had been telling the truth.

Finally, in Singhik {'leonine'}, he met Nyang-Pas, a [b]lama he had been seeking, who was reputed to be able to levitate. And, within a few minutes ..., he [Nyang-Pas] revealed ... it {by levitating} ... . ... He then offered to read Keel's mind. ...

The trick of mindreading, the [b]lama explained ... . ... Keel found that these instructions worked, and that he was slowly

{While explaining to Keel the contemplation to be undertaken, Nyang-Pas was simultaneously silently/tacitly suggesting to his own spirit-helper to rendre assistance to Keel to accomplish telepathy whenever that contemplation were to be undertaken by Keel.}

p. 133

able to perform mindreading. ...

Nyang-Pas claimed that travelling clairvoyance, or kinga sharrira, depends on ... conjuring up a familiar ... . ... One who is skilled in this discipline ... can finally see places that he does not know and events that are taking place at this moment. Many years after Keel's visit to Tibet, the New York clairvoyant Ingo Swann demonstrated travelling clairvoyance under scientific conditions at Stanford University ... . Keel also learned about the ability of some [b[lama[-]s

to create mental objects --

{actually, to induce invoked divine beings to fetch those objects from the mental-plane}

known as tulpas {sprul-sku} ... . (But the British traveller, Alexandra David-Neel, learnt how to do it, and describes in Magic and Mystery in Tibet how she once

conjured up an phantom monk ... .) ...

{actually, summoned a divinity, who assumed (at this her requaest) the guise of a monk}

In late 1955 he stopped in Italy, then went to Barcelona ... . There he lived in a hotel on a hilltolp with his girlfriend Lite ..., and wrote Jadoo, which is dedicated to her. He had met her in Frankfurt ... . However, the American publisher who accepted Jadoo ... insisted that Keel should return to America for [the book's] publication, for interviews and television appearances. The book had the effect of making him a celebrity".

pp. 133-6 events leading to John Keel's decision to author his book Operation Trojan Horse

p. 133

"Now there was a healthy market for his journalism ..., and, for most of the next decade, ... he continued to investigate mysteries wherever

p. 134

he found them -- he and Jacques Vallee were in Costa Rica at the same time ... . ...

But the death of Captain Thomas Mantell, chasing

a ballon-like object,

{"orb" / "fu-fighter"}

in January 1948, gave impetus to Project Sign, the Air Force study of UFOs, with Allen Hynek as adviser; this in turn became Project Grudge, which ... was more intent on ... misinforming the American public than in uncovering ... information. ... In March 1966, .. 'saucer ...' ... sightings were reported from all over the country. And Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara, blandly assured the American public that UFOs were illusions. ... All over America, a roar of outrage {at McNamara's deceitfulness and intentional disinformation} and derision went up. Since Keel had himself seen a UFO, ... he now asked press-cutting agencies to send him every cutting they could find on UFO sightings. ... On 30 March, the day that McNamara announced that he did not believe in UFOs, hundreds of newspapers from coast to coast carried reports of close-up sightings of spinning disks whose radiation seemed capable of stopping car engines. Keel ... checked with witnesses, ringing them long distance, and learnt that, in fact, the newspapers had deliberately suppressed ... [the most noteworthy of such reports by eyewitnesses]. People reported being chased in their cars by UFOs, which had sometimes landed on the road, and later reappeared over their homes. They often reported that their eyes were red and swollen for days after a sighting, and a few males confessed to pains in the genitals. Others had felt nauseating waves of heat. ...

p. 135

Keel collected ten thousand clippings in 1966, and a further two thousand in the month of March 1967 alone. He set out to analyse this vast amount of data, and soon discovered one peculiar fact : that ... the 'flaps' were often in specific states : for example, he found hundreds of sightings in Arka{n}sas on 16 August 1966, in two belts running north to south, but none at all in surrounding states. ... The data suggested that the UFO denizens know about human calendars and geographical boundaries. ...

At the Washington Fortfest in 1995, Keel described ... green and purple blobs ... on ... the Ohio River at night ... . ... Keel himself sat on a hilltop near the Gallipoli Ferry in West Virginia, in early 1967, ... But when he directed his powerful torch {searchlight} at them, they skittered out of the way of the beam. ... So he tried flashing at them in Morse code, telling them to go left or right, or up or down; they followed his instructions precisely.

Then he decided to invent his own code -- ... and ..., once again, the lights

{They were reading his mind in order to learn his code; but would not follow his suggestions unless the instructions were delivered to them in physically visible symbols : they would not follow instructions sent purely by telepathy (so that the code -- viz., some physical language -- was not superfluous). Thus, they each had two components : one of which could read his mind (but not follow mental instructions), and the other of which could follow physical instructions (but not by reading his mind). Their telepathic receptivity is their covert (perhaps their own subconscious) component, while their responsiveness to physically delivered communication is their overt (their own perhaps conscious) component. What is lacking is good telepathic receptivity on our part to any potential telepathic messages from them : the same lack is found in telepathic communication between humans and plants. But a true human adept in telepathy might not be lacking in such receptivity; such adepthood might be learned (like all the residue of shamanhood) in lucid dreaming. [written Sept 12 2014]}

followed his instructions. That could means only one thing : the code was superfluous {wrong!} -- they were reading his mind."
