Zone of Silence

“Beings descended from the sky in flying vessels…”

Mayan Chilam Balaam.

Much like its fabled ocean counterpart, the Zone of Silence encompasses three geographical areas forming a sort of triangle with the states of Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango in Mexico.   A world away from the mythic waters of the Bermuda triangle; in fact the Zone is mostly desert.  Still, once upon a very long time ago these areas werent so different.  The zone was a thriving sea known as the Sea of Thetys.  Today as it did then, the Zone sits north of the Tropic of Cancer and south of the 30th parallel, latitude it shares with the Bermuda Triangle and the Pyramids of Egypt.

UFO activity abounds in the Zone, and both this place and the Bermuda Triangle share similar geomagnetic disturbances.  Compasses go haywire, and deep in the Zone, cars stall.  Planes avoid flying over this area.  Radio waves, short wave, microwaves and satellite signals will not penetrate certain areas; which is how  and why the Zone received its name.

In fact, all navigational instruments malfunction, resulting in the only town within the Zone, Ceballos, having no television.  Giant UFOs, strange humanoids, mutated cacti, deformed animal life, and strange stone structures, are all part of the lore associated with the Zone.

This area of Mexico lies close to the United States border that in 1970 resulted in a rather embarrassing situation for the United States.  July 2nd to be precise is when panic set in at White Sands Missile Base.  During a missile test, an Athena missile veered of course and headed straight for Mexico and crashed within the Zone, 400 miles away.  The missile was carrying two small containers of Cobalt 57, which is radioactive.  This fact added tension to a situation that White Sands was trying to keep quiet.  No explanation was ever found or given for the malfunction.

Falling celestial objects, man made and otherwise, are a common sight in the Zone, pointing perhaps to a geophysical anomaly beneath this area.  Scientists have estimated that meteorites strike the Zone every three minutes. The zone is also famous for its red and purple cacti and trees.  These unusual colored plants grow next to regular green or brown cacti.  If taken from the Zone, the cactus returns to a more normal green or brown.

Tortoises in the Zone display pyramid shape segments on their shells while tortoises in the rest of the world display hexagonal shapes.  These tortoises also have no tail.  Centipedes in the area are enormous at over a foot in length with purple heads and tails.  Albino, red eyed lizards and snakes are common, and insects grow to two to three times their normal size.  All strange, but these are not the real mystery of the Zone; but they are markers to something much more mysterious.

UFOs are a global phenomenon, with certain areas containing a higher concentration of sightings that others.  Very few places in the world compares to Mexico for the frequency of sightings.  What further differentiates the Zone of Silence from other areas are the presence of strange humanoids encountered in the middle of the desert, and the gigantic size attributed to local UFOs.

Perhaps, one of the most spectacular sightings on record occurred over Ceballos one evening in September 1976 (Uriarte, 2012).  Over a dozen locals stood outside on main street looking at a triangular objects that was estimated to be over 800 feet, flashing blue, white and green lights.

A year or so before this sighting, a married couple who were in the zone on a amateur rock and fossil collecting trip, found their vehicle stuck in the mud when a severe storm hit the area.   Ernesto and Josefina Diaz were stranded with the fear of a flash flood in the back of their minds.  Help was the last thing they expected in such a desolate place.

So it was with some surprise when two very tall individuals in yellow raincoats came out of nowhere and offered to help.  They told Ernesto and Josefina to get inside the car, and that they would help them get back on their way.  Which is exactly what they did; their car was suddenly out of the mud and on firmer ground.  Ernesto got out of the car to thank the two men, but they were gone.  There was no sign of them, no sign of any vehicle and no tracks (Corrales).

Other ranchers and locals within the Zone occasionally report of strangers that a very tall and blond.  Sometimes these strange individuals are seen on the side of the road deep in the desert with no vehicle in sight.  To further compound the mysterious aspect of the Zone; there are also ancient ruins in the desert.  Archeologists think that these are thousands of years old.  The architects are unknown, but like Stonehenge, these ruins are thought to have been built for astronomical purposes.

So, like pyramids in the Egyptian desert and in the jungles of central and South America, like Stonehenge in Wiltshire; ruins in the Zone of Silence are about the skies.  But, we were told this, perhaps even warned.  The Mayan Popol Vuh tell us that, Men came from the skies, knowing everything, and they examined the four corners of the sky and the Earths round surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Autopsy Notes On Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (EBE): Real Dead Aliens?

 

 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Don’t believe in the reality of UFOs and their occupants?

Think that there’s absolutely no evidence regarding such things?

THINK AGAIN!

I strongly suggest that you look into the research of the late Leonard Stringfield, and the various monographs and books he published, you might be shocked by what you learn.

Evidence collected by UFO researcher Leonard Stringfield and published in his monograph, The UFO Crash/Retrieval Syndrome, Status Report II  (MUFON, 1980, if true, is far beyond the compelling, as it boggles the mind.

In this status report, Stringfield offers a collective summary of comments by various anonymous medical examiners, who supposedly examined deceased alien bodies retrieved from crashes between 1947 and 1980. The following tentative morphology refers to an alleged alien humanoid measuring 3 1/2 – 4 1/2 feet tall and weighing 40 pounds.  Forget Fox-TV’s Alien Autopsy, this might be the real thing.

These are some of the notes directly from medical examiners:

Two round eyes without pupils. Under heavy brow ridge, eyes described variously as large, almond shaped, elongated, sunken or deep set, far apart, slightly slanted, appearing “Oriental” or “Mongoloid.”

By human standards, the head is large in relation to the limbs and torso. It has been compared with a 5-month old human fetus

No ear lobes or protrusive flesh extending beyond apertures on each side of the.  Nose is vague. Two snares are indicated with only slight protuberance.

Mouth indicated as a small “slit” without lips opening into a small cavity, and appears not   to function as a means of communication or as an orifice for food ingestion.

Neck is described as being thin and in some instances not visible because of the garment on that section of the body.

Most observers describe the head of the humanoid alien as hairless.  One source said the pate showed a slight fuzz. Bodies are described as hairless.

The torso is generally described as small and thin.   In most instances, the body was observed wearing a flexible, metallic garment.

Arms are described as long, thin and reaching down to the knee section.

One type of hand consists of four fingers and no thumb; two of the fingers appear longer than the others.  Some observers have seen fingernails; others none.  A slight webbing effect between fingers was noted by three authoritative observers. Other reports indicate types of hands with both less and more than four fingers.

Legs are reported as short and thin. Feet of one type are described as toe-less. Most observers describe feet as covered. One said alien foot looked like an orangutan’s.

Skin is not  described as green. Some claim beige, tan, brown or gray with a tanish or pinkish cast. One said it looked “almost bluish-gray under the deep freeze light,”  In two instances, the bodies were charred a dark brown in the wake of an alleged crash.

Skin texture is described as scaly or reptilian, and as stretchable, elastic or mobile over smooth muscle or skeletal tissue. No striated muscle, no perspiration, no body odor.

No teeth

No apparent reproductive organs. No genitalia. An absence of sexual organs suggests that they were perhaps atrophied by evolutionary degeneration, or the possibilities that some aliens, and perhaps all, do not reproduce like human beings, or that cadavers studied may have originated through cloning or other artificial means.

To most observers, the humanoids appear to be “formed out of a mold,” sharing identical facial characteristics rather than individuality displayed by humans.

Brain and its capacity unknown.

Colorless liquid present in body, without red cells; alien circulation not oxygen carrying. No lymphocytes. No food or water intake known; in one known retrieval, witness noted that no food was aboard. Absence of digestive system, gastrointestinal tract, alimentary canal and rectal area.

More than one humanoid type. Life span unknown. Descriptive types of alien anatomy may be nor more diverse than those known among Earth’s Homo Sapiens. Other recovered alien types or other grotesque configurations, or human, are unknown at this time. Origins also unknown.

Stringfield also came in contact with a physician who in the early 1950’s allegedly performed an autopsy on an EBE. The witness described the body as follows:

SIZE: “The specimen observed was 4 feet, three and three-eighths inches tall. I cannot remember the weight. It has been so long, and my files do not indicate the weight.  I recall the length well, because we had a disagreement and everyone took their turn measuring.”

HEAD:   “The head was pear-shaped in appearance and over-sized by human standards for the body.  The eyes were Mongoloid in appearance.  The ends of the eyes furthest from the nasal cavity slated upwards at about a ten-degree angle.  There seemed to be no visible eyelids, only what seemed like a fold. The nose consisted of a small, fold-like protrusion above the nasal orifices. The mouth seemed to be a wrinkle-like fold.  There were no human lips as such—-just a slit that opened into an oral cavity about two inches deep.  A membrane along the rear of the cavity separated it from what would be the digestive tract.

“The tongue seemed to be atrophied into almost a membrane.  No teeth were observed.  X-rays revealed a maxilla and mandible as well as a cranial bone structure.  The outer ‘ear lobes’ didn’t exist.  The auditory orifices present were similar to our middle ear and inner ear canals.  The head contained no hair follicles. The skin seemed grayish in color and seemed mobile when stretched,”

In November 1979, additional word was received from the medical authority concerning the nature of alien skin. Under magnification, the tissue structure appears mesh-like, or like a grid network of horizontal and perpendicular lines.  Clarifying an earlier reference that describes the skin of the entity as “reptilian,” this new information suggests that the texture of the granular-skinned lizards, such as the iguana and the chameleon, may be similar to at least one type of alien humanoid.

I do not believe it is a coincidence that the bulk of reported encounters with EBEs or alien humanoids, such as the ones allegedly ejected from the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico crash and as described in Budd Hopkins’ Intruders, Witnessed and David Jacobs’ Secret Life, share many features in common with the aforementioned anatomical/physiological descriptions.

An interesting hypothesis is the possibility of another star system where the predominant life-form was reptilian, as was our own planet many millions of years ago.  In this hypothesized star system, however, dinosaurs evolved into erect, bi-pedal beings that resemble humans only in the vaguest of terms. Therefore, instead of hominids and eventual homo sapiens, dinosauroid men/women evolved. This hypothesis offers several intriguing perspectives regarding the appearance, behavior and possible motives of EBEs.

For one, if EBE evolution is indeed reptilian, they certainly would look considerably different than we do, although not totally dissimilar, in that they would share common bi-pedal characteristics.  The objective differences might well include scaly skin, webbed hands and/or feet and a totally different brain structure incorporating elaborately divergent functions, especially as their mid-brain, [specifically lacking an amygdala (pleasure center)], and stem would have its origin from reptilian as opposed to hominid roots.  It’s important to remember here, that the limbic system of homo sapiens is believed to be a reptilian vestigial.

These physical differences might result in a species inability to sense color as we do, to feel or express emotions as we do, to eat the same foods as humans and, most important, the tendency not to exhibit a strong sense of territoriality and possessiveness, which in human history, invariably leads to war.

However, they might still harbor the fundamental underlying trait of higher lifeforms—-the need to know and understand the universe in which they live.  But the lack of an adrenal and/or endocrine system and sexual organs, as we understand them, might result in a radically different biological entity, with perceptual processes that disallow or prevent the organism from perceiving reality and its many complex social elements as we do, and as we so often take for granted.

Try to imagine what life would be like without emotions such as love, hate, fear, excitation, etc., and without consumption of the foodstuffs we so enjoy and yet require for survival.

If EBEs do not procreate and biologically age as we do, they would have very little if anything in common with us—-with the exception, of the “need to know.” At the most basic of levels, the decision-making, reasoning and judgment of such entities would not be governed by passion or sentiment, but by cold, hard, rational, pragmatic logic. Their orientation and agenda, whatever it may be, would certainly be self-centered, not human centered, as altruism would very likely not be a word contained in their lexicon.

Such a dramatically different species of life would certainly look at human beings as quite peculiar indeed. We would appear as large, hairy creatures with rather primitive technology (compared to theirs, which may employ paranormal forces the way we commonly use electromagnetism) whose primary occupation is tribal warfare and entering strange metal boxes that spew toxic gases into the atmosphere and emit bright lights after dark (automobiles).

In this regard, perhaps more emphasis should be placed on the work of the late Leonard Stringfield, whose research and publications into Crash/Retrievals may eventually provide that piece of “hard” evidence to convince a disbelieving world that the nightmare has already begun. With the exception of the Roswell case, which can stand on its own merits, Crash/Retrieval investigations, once cleaned of all disinformation possibilities, promises the most rewards in terms of objective data.

Since 1978, Stringfield has published nine pieces of literature specifically dealing with Crash/Retrievals.  At the time this article was originally published in 1992, the most recent document from Stringfield was UFO Crash Retrievals: The Inner Sanctum, Status Report VI.  

 This particular report opens with a most intriguing piece developed from a statement provided Stringfield by Sgt. Maj. Robert Dean (ret.) as concerns an alleged previously classified study entitled “Assessment: An Evaluation of a Possible Military Threat to Allied Forced in Europe,” that was established in early 1961 at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers, Europe (SHAPE), which was, and is, the military arm of NATO.

Although dated in terms of the cold war situation, this assessment, in and of itself, appears to be far more than a simple acknowledgment of UFOs, for reference is made to “several” extraterrestrial civilizations and a “process” or “plan,” suggesting that far more elaborate information was collected that we never made available for publication, or even review.

Additionally, there is a direct mention of crash/retrievals supported by photographs, bodies and exotic “plasti-metals” that were beyond our understanding at the time.  With today’s technology base, these so-called plasti-metals sound suspiciously like matrix composites being used in aerospace, or at least a highly evolved generation of such.

Given the early dates on the study’s initiation and publication, one can only wonder what follow-on data has been collected since the mid-1960’s. While not providing hard, objective evidence we can yet examine, this study certainly establishes a fascinating paper trail…one that can definitely be followed.

Moving forwards in time brings us to page 50 of Status Report VI and the early 1970’s where a high ranking U.S. Army officer, a source of great integrity, conveys to Stringfield what is perhaps one of the most terrifying events in ufology.  This report contains information, which, if verified, may generate more questions that it answers; in it are the purported claims of Special Forces soldiers in the Vietnam (actually Cambodia) who came upon a landed UFO and aliens collecting and sorting human body parts!

The result of this gruesome discovery was an intense firefight between G.I.’s and the aliens, where the entities were using some type of hand-held, directed energy weapon and we were, of course, left with good old M-16’s. According to testimony, heavy losses were taken on both sides, although it required a direct head-shot to kill the alien beings as their apparent metallic-like garment was bullet-proof. After the protracted firefight, the aliens withdrew, loading their bin full of human body parts into their vehicle and abruptly departing the area.

Following this incident, all surviving soldiers were rounded up and intensely de-briefed, interrogated and sternly warned never to divulge what they had experienced in the jungles of Cambodia.  Can you imagine the public’s response if this information was formally acknowledged to the world?  Can you spell the word panic. ?

The very idea of alien beings landing for this grotesque purpose smacks of the kind of frightening stories coming out of John Lear and others.  Although sounding much like a scene out of the motion picture Predator, is this the only incident of its kind that transpired during the Vietnam war?  Why, one may ask, were the aliens so frantic to collect body parts to begin with?

Another startling story regarding what may be yet another, New Mexico crash/retrieval is revealed by Stringfield on page 41 of Status Report VI from a source, Chuck Oldham, of Landsdowne, Pennsylvania. The alleged witness was a former military officer with a high security clearance. While serving in the military, he had a special clearance that enabled him to access a restricted library (prior to 1970) that held data on nothing other than the government’s investigation and study of UFOs.

If true, it is astonishing that there would an entire library dedicated to UFOs within the military industrial complex. Due to the highly sensitive nature of the information, no data is provided which could be used to identify him or the location of the base.

Although provocative in content, the most tantalizing portion of the interview is the tail-end where the U.S. military/government’s withholding of their knowledge is discussed.  Admittedly, we have all heard, and by now are quite familiar with, our government’s supposed reasons for debunking UFOs. However, particularly interesting about one aspect is that from the very beginning of our military’s investigation and study of UFOs they have always emphatically stated two constants.

One piece of propaganda has been the ardent denial of the existence of UFOs, period.  Secondly, the official line was that these phenomena, whatever they are, do not represent a threat to our national security. These two statements are incompatible and contradictory.  For if there are no UFOs to begin with, why be concerned with a possible threat to national security?  Is this yet another example of a not-so-brilliant oxymoron, like “military intelligence?”

Something beyond strange is going on here. It strongly smells like our government may be concealing something about UFOs and their occupants that far outweighs the simple concept or understanding that our planet is being, and has been for quite some time, visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial vehicles.

Based on the amassed evidence, there is good reason to suspect that even if an ultra-black faction of the U.S. government has indeed developed a formal relationship with one or more extraterrestrial races, this in and of itself would not constitute sufficiently damaging information to withhold from the public.

What if that which has been learned during the course of dealing with alien entities is so potentially devastating, though perhaps not in terms of a possible invader or conqueror, that it could literally rip apart the very fabric of our planet’s social structure?

Another portion of Stringfield’s Status Report VI describes the testimony of a purported Major General in the Air Force, who reveals his knowledge of UFO crashes and aliens dead and alive.  He also told Stringfield’s source, on Cheri Manet, of a “very high level cover-up” extending to “the highest office in the land.”

Exactly what would shake our belief systems? We are already pretty much aware that UFOs exist and represent technology far superior to our own, and that they have been flying around our skies for at least fifty years. So what’s so damned shocking?  Certainly not what we already assume or suspect.

Given the media exposure to the entire concept of alien life and UFOs in general, from Unsolved Mysteries, The UFO Report, Sightings, to Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., Communion, Aliens, Predator, Fire in the Sky, Roswell,, Contact  and Intruders,  what could possibly be left to our imaginations that hasn’t already become part of our cultural mind-scape?

As a modern telecommunicating civilization, we have been slowly acclimated, conditioned and even begun accepting the notion of alien life visiting Earth and directly interacting with its population. How would our government’s release of currently classified UFO data result in the breakdown of society’s socio-economic infrastructure as well as that of the military industrial complex?

Certainly, not losing faith in our government’s ability to protect us against supposedly hostile aliens!  No contemporary western nation particularly enjoys knowing that a technologically superior presence can willfully violate its airspace leaving them virtually incapable or responding.

There is absolutely no evidence or reason to suspect that the U.S. population would suddenly lose trust in its government if such were acknowledged for there has never been a direct or implied threat from hostile extraterrestrials.  Unless of course, one is to believe the paranoid mentality allegedly demonstrated by our military in the late Lt. Col. Phillip Corso’s book The Day After Roswell.

We as a nation became painfully aware not too long ago of just of how underhanded, deceitful, corrupt and unscrupulous our government officials, whether elected or not, really are.  Let me count the ways; The Warren Commission Report, Vietnam, Watergate, Iran-Contra, Whitewater, Travelgate, Monica Lewinsky, George W. Bush’s administration disinforming congress on weapons of mass destruction the Iraq supposedly had. Should I continue?  All one must do to understand our governments continuing covert nature is simply keep up with the news.

Judging by the popular response to the more than thirty year informational blitz on UFOs/ETs, most people find the subject amusing, curious and interesting, but their concern about such matters is relegated to occasional lectures, movies, reality-based TV shows and after-hour cocktail party discussions.

Unless UFOs affected individual lives to the point of influencing decision-making processes on such issues of family, job, income, health and religious convictions, such information would not have any significant impact on society in general.

What facet of UFOs could possibly affect people’s lives at these dramatic levels? Certainly not concern over national security matters, nor the worry that every time an inferior culture meets or confronts a superior one, the prior is either assimilated or destroyed by the latter, at least in human history.  Well then, what’s left?

Again, reference must be made to Stringfield, but this time a passage from page 44 of his Status Report III, which tells of a pathologist who allegedly performed an autopsy of an alien body, and who was ultimately silenced. Stringfield writes, “His last message reiterated through his colleague, concerned a hypothesis which postulated that early man, possibly Cro-Magnon or before, had been genetically altered, or hybridized, with an alien of superior intelligence to form homo-sapiens. According to his rationale, atrophied human-like organs such as evidenced in the alien’s genitals, suggest Earth-related evolutionary ties that are beyond coincidence.

In essence, according to the pathologist, primeval Earth had become an experimental test tube for a new race whose development required periodic watching.  Provocatively, the hypothesis, which was presented at a secret high-level medical conference (with Russian attendance), does answer a lot of basic questions about the UFO, i.e., their cyclic visitation, some biblical events, the lack of open communication, the lack of overt hostility, and a plausible explanation for abductions of random subjects for what seems to be physical examinations.

Also, it would explain the prolonged high-level international secrecy. If world governments have medical and other back-up evidence to support the hypothesis, then the posture of silence takes on a new meaning. Perhaps they (world governments) assume that man’s concept of himself in his world would be shattered.

Bulls-eye!

In all probability, this information is the missing link as to why the world’s governments, or the U.S. more specifically, will not divulge virtually any UFO data to the public, that is, total denial.  Stringfield’s evidence, if existing in physical form, could unquestionably be the most devastating blow to the human psyche since the beginning of recorded time on this planet.

Or perhaps, as ufologist Richard M. Dolan has been writing and speaking of so eloquently for some years, it’s about a complex set of circumstances involving money, politics, energy, the military and world power as well as massive culture shock?   I strongly suggest that you purchase all of his books and any DVDs available of his presentations.

In the end, it all seems to revolve around the loss of power, control and manipulation at all levels.
