"You did not wait for me
To draw near to you
But you clothed yourself in frail humanity
You did not wait for me
To call out to you
But you let me hear your voice
And I'm forever grateful to you
I'm forever grateful for the cross
I'm forever grateful to you
That you came to seek and save the lost"

As I read Dr. John Jay Harper's new article for UFO Digest entitled The Art of
WWIII: The Unifying Archetypes of Apocalypse, 8/22/08, I felt a sense of déjà
vu all over again. I looked into his synchronistic, Jungian, collective
unconscious eyes and saw myself thirty years younger looking back wild eyed
yet startlingly perplexed like a deer caught in the headlights. As I have
written about many times before including my article My Early Descent into the
Spirit World of Darkness and My Later Ascent into the Godly World of Light,
UFO Digest, 2/1/08, I come from an intellectual and spiritual background very
similar to many of UFO Digest readers and contributors. I began studying UFOs
fifty years ago and reading books by Major Donald Keyhoe and about Project
Bluebook. I affiliated with early UFO organizations like NICAP and APRO.
As a young man, I read the works of Charles Fort and Brad Steiger. My Masters
Thesis was a tribute to the Gnostic philosopher Rudolf Steiner. As a young
Professor, I had the students in my graduate class, "Alternate Conceptions of
Reality" read the same writers that Dr. Harper cited in his article including
Jung, Huxley, Campbell, Capra and Zukav. I experimented with lucid dreaming
and channeling images from the yenne velt (other world). I wrote an article
for a feminist journal, Anima, in 1980 entitled "Adam: Male, Female or Both?"
where I spoke of the androgynous nature of Adam and therefore of God. I read
the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas which Harper cited and used its Taoist unity
mantra in reconciling good and evil, male and female and other supposed
opposites to write a novel, "The Other World" thirty years ago where I
glorified the Hebrew feminist archetype Lilith.
I was probably versed in this stuff well before even Dr.Harper was. I was so
called New Age before it was even called New Age. I was forever searching for
the truth but I kept coming up empty handed.
"Always learning and never able to come to knowledge of the truth" (2 Timothy
That is why I can relate to people on this site and other UFO and paranormal
sites. As I stated previously, I have befriended not only UFO Digest Publisher
Dirk Vander Ploeg and Editor Robert Morningstar, but also noted Brazilian
Ufologist A. J. Gevaerd, Don Allis, Publisher of Alien Seeker News, Chris
Montgomery of UFO Research Center, Derrick Fulton of UFO Alley, Rob McConnell
of X-Zone Radio, Jerry Pippin of UFO Radio fame as well as noted paranormal
author Brad Steiger among many. Although we don't always agree on all
conclusions, we do respect one another and do speak the same language of UFOs
and the paranormal. As I just stated, I cannot discount such interests out of
hand as many have done and continue to do because I have always been a part of
these pursuits. I know them to be real. The devil is in the details.
Dr.Harper's efforts to "demilitarize the planet for peace" and his notion that
"we are fruit of an intelligent earth" reminded me not only of my antiwar
youth but also of an article that I wrote 30 years ago entitled "Apocatastasis
", Greek for restitution, where I had an embattled earth become upset with
nuclear missiles buried in her bosom and cause them to be set off in the
dreams of the nuclear disarmament negotiators as a warning. Once again, been
there done that, many years ago.
