17.- THE HARMONICS OF HUMANS
THE UNIFIED EQUATIONS TELL US THAT THE WHOLE Universe is manifested
by the harmonic geometric matrix of light itself. The whole of
reality is light. Therefore, it follows, that we as human beings
must consist of nothing more than a geometric collection of the
harmonic wave-forms of light — guided by intelligence.
What we must look for is some proof of this in the evidence
available to us. There are, in fact, several clues which indicate
that the human form is in harmony with the Universe we live in. The
first clue is the gestation period of a human being. Nine months, or
an average of 270 days. There is a great scattering of birth times
which are either side of this 270 day average, but if we argue for
perfect harmony then there must be an optimum time between
conception and birth which would help to guarantee the production of
a perfect human.
As each day forms a part of our geometric time cycle it seems
reasonable to assume that perfection would be more likely to result
from a gestation period of: 269.44 days.
This would tune the body directly with the harmonic value derived
from the unified equation: 26944.
Slight variations of the unified value are manifested due to changes
in the light speed as the distance from the Earth’s centre
increases. This is fully explained in my book, “The Bridge to
Infinity”. Values of 2695, 26944 and 2693645 have been calculated
using the small variations in light speed. For this exercise I have
used the average value of 26944.
The second clue is indicated by the temperature at which the
human body functions most efficiently. Like any machine the human
body will start to deteriorate physically if the temperature becomes
too low or too high.
The Dictionary of Medicine (the Marshall Cavendish) states:
average temperature of a human being is taken to be 98.4°F in threat
Britain, but American doctors prefer to take it as 98.6°F.
Readings between 97°F and 99°F are completely normal. Temperatures much below 97°F are usually only found either in
under-activity of the thyroid, or after exposure to cold.
Temperatures between 99°F and 100°F may not be of much importance,
especially in children, but readings of over 100(0)F are almost
invariably indicative of some infection (or sometimes some other
form of inflammation).”
I would predict that the temperature at which the human body
performs most efficiently, both physically and mentally, is
98.80412°F 98.80412° Fahrenheit = 37.1134° centigrade The harmonic
reciprocal of 371134 = 269444.
If the unified harmonic is built into the body at birth then the
temperature at which it functions appears to be at a level which
would set up the harmonic reciprocal, causing a reaction, and life.
A third clue is evident in the nodal points in the human body where
bio-energetic processes are most prevalent. These are the major
points used in the science of acupuncture. The following is an
extract from the book, “The New Soviet Psychic Discoveries”, by
Henry Gris and William Dick. Page 418. (Sphere Books Ltd.)
At Alma-Ata, the Leningrad surgeon, Dr. M. K. Geykin, was
experimenting with Kirlian photography. He had spent some time in
China, where he worked on acupuncture. Fascinated by Kirlian method,
he decided to visit him in Krasnodar and induce him to build a
gadget that could help physicians find the points of acupuncture on
the human body. Kirlian listened to him with great interest He had
already discovered long before that the 695 points on the human body
considered to be the points for acupuncture coincided with the
points of intense luminosity brought out by Kirlian Photography.
“Kirlian was the first, with his photography, to come up with a
machine to determine the points of acupuncture.”
It was a joint
effort between Kirlian, Dr. Geykin, and electronics engineer I. V. Mikhalevsky. Later Soviet physicist
Viktor Adamenko constructed his
own instrument, which had a very original and stable electronic
circuit. Adamenko’s device not only determines the points of
acupuncture but observes the bio-energetic processes in the human
The number of acupuncture points: 695
The reciprocal harmonic of the speed of light at the Earth’s
surface. Again it appears that the body’s bio-energy system is tuned
to react to the harmonic of light.
The fourth clue was published in an Australian magazine called,
“Simply Living” several years ago. The following is an extract from
long article regarding the mathematics of the world grid system.
THE FORMATION OF MATTER
Using three main harmonics, Cathie was able to initiate a basic
equation. The harmonics he chose were:
1703 — The Earth Mass Harmonic
1439 — The Speed of Light Harmonic
264 — A harmonic that recurs within the polar squares.
Initially, these correlated as:
1439 + 264 = 1703 but extending the accuracy to five figure
harmonics this became:
14389 + 2636 = 17025 This could be interpreted as:
Light + 2636 = Mass Formation
So, what does the harmonic 2636
represent? Surprisingly, this is the harmonic square root of 695,
the reciprocal of the speed of light, which allows the incredible
Mass = Speed of Light + square root of the reciprocal of the Speed
• In equations, the speed of light is referred to by the symbol, C.
Suddenly, we have an expression in terms of light energy
for the value of Mass in Einstein’s famous equation,
E = MC2. Einstein, himself, stated that the answer to space travel
would be found if we could replace the value for mass in his
equation with a value in pure energy terms.
But let us return to the original equation
1439 + 264 = 1703
before we progress further with Einstein’s equation. I imagine most
readers are probably gasping for breath at this stage, so let us see
if we can find any evidence to support Cathie’s equation from
outside his own research. This equation seems to be attempting to
relate the manifestation of mass from pure light energy, so it could
be said that when the harmonic of 264 is applied to pure light
energy, matter-formation is kicked into action. Let us look at one
of nature’s most amazing processes, the DNA behavior, so basic to
the preservation of life on this planet and the building block of
organic matter. Science knows how it happens but not really why.
we look at it geometrically we can see not only the key to the
answer, but strong support for Cathie’s Equation as well.
The geometry of the DNA molecule
Buckminster Fuller’s geometric analysis of the DNA molecule (which
is basically in accord with the WatsonCrick model) found that
helical columns of tetrahedra (tetrahelix) nestle together in local
clusters of five tetrahedra (ten make a helix cycle) around a
transverse axis in a tetrahelix nestling column.*
But five tetrahedra, triplebonded to one another around a common edge axis
fall short of 360 degrees by 7 degrees, 20 minutes. This gap is
called the birth unzipping angle of the DNA/RNA behaviors. The
unzipping occurring as the birth dichotomy, the new life breaking
off from the old pattern with the perfect imprint and repeating the
other’s growth pattern.
*Although Watson and Crick did not identify the tetra helix columns
themselves, the numbers of increments they measured are the same.
Can we assume that this angle is arbitrary within the geometry? If
Cathie is right then harmonics should be clearly evident in this
7° 20’ = 26400 seconds of arc.
If it is shared by each of the faces then each angle becomes 44
minutes which equals 2640 seconds. We can therefore see that 264 has
clearly emerged as a primary harmonic associated with the formation
of organic matter. I believe that the combination of all these
factors shows without much doubt the human form is unique. We are at
one with our environment.
There would be very few, if any, people on Earth who would have the
perfect harmonic combination, but those with the factors which are
closest to the ultimate would be, in theory, the healthiest and most
intelligent of us all. It would be interesting to check a small
group of these people and see if they meet the criteria.

18.- BUILDERS IN STONE
THERE ARE MEN AMONG US WHO UNDERSTAND THE mathematical secrets which
govern the universe. Now they are frantically, but clandestinely,
trying to find ways of put-ting them into practical use.
One cause for both the haste and the secrecy has been the inevitable
realization that we are not alone in the universe. There ample
evidence that intelligent beings visited this planet thousands of
years ago: traces of long-past civilizations in many respects far
more advanced than our own can be found in ancient structures. The
evidence of superiority — in every sense — of the ancients has
shaken those who have rediscovered their legacies; an analogy would
be the sudden discovery by life-long inmates of a mental hospital
that there was a world of “superior intelligence” just beyond their
We have been visited and watched for possibly thousands of years.
While our twentieth-century sciences have opened up the doors of
space for us, it is also reasonable to assume that the ancients had
knowledge far in advance of our own, and that space travel was to
them a natural adjunct to their civilization. Yet, in spite of their
great intelligence and frightening control over sources of power and
energy, they were unable to prevent whatever the catastrophes were
that visited the planet and eradicated many signs of their life
With the state of the world as it is at present, our modern
scientists must speculate many times a day on our chances of
Were there survivors of the ancient civilizations — and if
so, what became of them?
Did they escape into space, to build still other, greater
Or were they people from space in the first place,
who looked upon Earth only as a small colony in a galactic empire?
Are we descendants of these people — or are we a new race carefully
created and cultivated by the space people as organisms adapted to
life here, to be custodian of the planet until they require it once
Are we a prize herd, owned by someone Out There?
care-fully watch us, even now, coaxing and guiding us, teaching and
punishing us, molding and remolding our future according to out
own progress and with regard to how we handle our own problems?
These are but a few of the many questions that have been put forward
by nonconformist thinkers in recent decades. Whatever we choose to
imagine, there is always the hard fact: in historical times there
were races on this planet with an intelligence far superior to our
own; there is evidence, literally, by the ton that says so. There is
evidence too, I suggest, to show that there are similar
“intelligences” among us today — and that their presence on our
globe is a fact known to our own scientists.
The evidence of the ancient civilizations has been uncovered in many
parts of the world in the form of stone ruins. After studying these
massive stone edifices, archaeologists have usually produced
profound theories as to their purpose, finally to class them as
temples erected in honor of some sun god or other, built in order
to house pagan rituals, or for even darker purposes — such as human
As we all know, a number of inexplicable stone ruins have been found
as remnants of past cultures — including those of the Mayas, Incas,
Aztecs, and Egyptians. In many cases the ruins indicate patterns
that were originally geometric in their design. Reconstruction and
measurements have proved beyond doubt that in many instances the
buildings and structures had inherent in them mathematical concepts
which had direct connection with light, gravity and mass. The
buildings were not simple monuments or places of worship to dark
gods; nor were they designed the way they were for purely aesthetic
They had a definite scientific function. The function, I
believe, was connected with power production, communication,
transportation, celestial computation, healing, and possibly many
other purposes which may still be obscure to us. I believe that
there are unquestionable geometric links between the Great Pyramid
in Egypt and Stonehenge, the fascinating arrangement of monoliths on
Salisbury Plain, England. I have uncovered evidence to substantiate
my claims, and I sincerely hope that Stonehenge experts will have
the grace to take a closer look at some of their own conclusions.
Some readers have come to feel that I am always ready to condemn
all scientists out of hand. I have no doubt at all that the majority of scientists are men and women of integrity who carry out
honest research in their chosen fields; unfortunately, the society
which we live is such that many of these dedicated people are unable
to inform the public at large of their findings. There is a communication gap, partly a result of the lack of a common vocabulary or
terminology that might put the people on the same wavelength as the
scientists, and partly deliberately imposed.
Money rules the world;
the boat of vested interests cannot readily be rocked. The number of
scientists, dedicated or otherwise, who have dared to speak out of
turn, in defiance of the monied establishment is very small indeed.
The solution to this particular problem is education — the bridge
that will close the gap between the laity and the scientists, the
ecclesiastics of the 1980s. In time that bridge will be built.
Meanwhile, I am sure, there are scientists who must be suffering the
pains of hell for having placed the means for destroying great
portions of humanity in the hands of politicians and military
rulers. / appeal to these intellectuals, if they have a shred of
honesty left, to tell the truth about the atomic bomb, about the
preparations for germ warfare, about all the scientific marvels that
the world would enjoy today if a sane and reasonable control could
be placed upon the knowledge which is theirs.
There are scientists who agree with me; I know this, for they have
spoken to me about the problem. I can pry into their secrets and
pass them on as I uncover them — because I am not one of them. Is it
right that they should have a layman for their spokesman? It is a
position which I fill uneasily. “It is not for the public to know
these things; it is not good for them,” one scientist assured me.
I’ll let you be the judge of that.
As I dug in closer to the truth of the UFOs and the power sources
which they use, I was twice approached by a “middle-man” who was
interested only in finding whether or not I would stop my research
for a price. When he found that I was prepared to go on with my
research and publish at all costs, I was warned that unspecified
“strange things” would happen to me if I persisted. This is not a
delusion of someone suffering from a persecution complex; it is
perfectly true. A noted lawyer has the name, and a record of the
veiled threat and who made it.
I was able to give the middle-man his answer during a television
interview; I let it be known that I had taken a number of
precautions — such as having a number of copies of manuscripts,
charts, calculations, maps and other research data — placed in
several safe spots, so that if anything untoward happened to me the
work would be carried on and eventually published anyway. I said
that I was not afraid.
A little later I was again approached, offered a position working
with a small band of scientists with the hint of a very healthy
salary. My answer was the same; and on this occasion I gave a full
report to the New Zealand Government of the offer. Power groups
today all have this in common: they are unable to understand a
person who refuses to be bought. Frankly, I would like nothing
better than to be able to carry out full-time research on all the
matters that interest me for the rest of my life; but I would also
have to be completely free to disseminate whatever knowledge I might
gain, whatever conclusions to which I might be drawn. With that off
my chest, I would like to quote from a newspaper story carried by
the Aukland Star on 23 September 1969.
It was filed from the London
office of NZPA-Reuter, and it was headed:
STONE-AGE POWER STATION?
A group of amateur archaeologists has come up with a startling
answer to one of the world’s oldest and puzzling mysteries — the
origin and purpose of stone-age monuments, such as Stonehenge.
Evidence assembled over seventeen years could alter current thinking
on the mysterious circles of stone. The suggestion is that the
stones form a gigantic power network.
Mr. John Williams, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, thinks all such
monuments in Britain may be aligned in a single geometrical pattern.
Mr. Williams, a solicitor, has compared the positions on ordnance
survey maps of more that 3000 prehistoric stone circles and single
He says every one is aligned to
neighbors up to twenty miles away
at an angle of 23 ½ degrees, or a multiple of that angle.
Over the years he has taken thousands of photographs of standing
stones and believes he has found a significant clue to their use.
A surprising number of photographs appeared spoilt, as if “fogged.”
“I thought nothing of it for years and put it down to bad camera
work,” Mr. Williams said today, “but in 1959 a friend and I
photographed the same stone in Brecon together. Both pictures came out with a fogged band across
them in the same place. My picture was taken in color
and the fog-band was dark blue. This led me to surmise that
something in the stone was spoiling the pictures, a kind of
“Since then I’ve had many more examples of the same phenomenon,” Mr.
Williams continued. “Most, if not all, standing stones contain
quartz, a crystal similar to that used with the cat’s whisker in
early wireless receivers. I believe most stones would show the fog
effect if systematically photographed. I now think the stones form a
gigantic power network, though I cannot guess for what purpose.”
Mr. Williams offers two further clues. More than 200 of the stone
sites are in north-south alignment and are named after King Arthur.
“But Arthur,” says Mr. Williams, “does not signify a Celtic warrior
king. In Welsh the name means Great Bear, and this may be a clue
that the power system was based on polar magnetism.” Said Mr.
Williams: “Radio waves and X-rays have always been there, although
modern man only recently discovered them. Is it possible that
prehistoric man discovered something analogous which is still
unknown to us?”
Dolmens, groups of stones with a roofing stone,
often delicately balanced, are usually thought to be sepulchers. But
Mr. Williams says human remains have been found on only 2 percent of
such sites. He believes the roofing stones were placed as rocking
stones to operate the power system.
Naturally I was very interested in this report, as it backed up a
good deal of my own theories. The fact that the stones as described
by Mr. Williams are lined up at angles of 23 ½° or multiples of that
figure is most significant, as this is the angle of inclination of
the earth’s axis. Mr. Williams undoubtedly was aware of this when he
was interviewed, though the point is not brought out in the article.
It will be worth while to pay a quick visit to Stonehenge: it
comprises two circles of upright stone blocks, with two other series
of standing stones inside, each of which is in the shape of a
The outermost circle evidently contained originally thirty
stones, each 13 ½ feet high; the arrangement is known as the
Sarsen Circle. The diameter of this circle is 97 feet, 4 inches,
according to measurements published in the book Stonehenge Decoded,
by American astronomer Gerald S. Hawkins. The author carried out a
scientific survey of Stonehenge and of all known data and references
to it, and then with the aid of a computer was able to show that the
geometric arrangement of the massive stones formed a highly accurate
astronomical clock. This study also demonstrated that the architects
of that time had an extremely advanced knowledge of astronomy and
The measurements I give here are those published by
Hawkins in his fascinating book. Of the thirty stones which once
stood in the Sarsen Circle, only twenty-four are today in their
original positions. The thirty upright stones were once topped by
thirty lintels, mortised at each end; only five of the lintels
remain in place. The stones were not quarried locally, but were
brought from a position near Newbury, some forty miles away.
Outside the Sarsen Circle there was yet another circle, the Aubrey
Circle, named after its discoverer. What remains of this is a series
of fifty-six evenly-spaced holes which vary in depth from two feet
to four. The diameter of this fairly accurate circle was measured at
288 feet, with a distance of 16 feet from one hole to the next.
While the circle was not a perfect one, the greatest error
radial-wise was found to be 19 inches; and around the circumference,
in the spacing of the holes, 21 inches.
Between the Aubrey holes and the Sarsen Circle two other circular
patterns of holes — now named the Y holes and the Z holes — have
been discovered. There are thirty holes in the Y series, forming a
circle roughly 35 feet outside the Sarsen Circle, and in the Z
series twenty-nine holes, from 5 to 15 feet beyond the Sarsen
Circle. The holes are not regularly spaced. Excavation of each hole
brought to light a single blue-stone fragment of the rhyolite
Further descriptions and measurements of the Stonehenge complex
would fill a volume; but the above information was of vital interest
to me. Coupled with the discovery by Mr. Williams of what seemed to
be a form of radiation issuing from the large stones, Hawkin’s work
helps one to form a clearer picture of the possible purpose of the
geometric pattern of the quartz stones.
The diameter of the Aubrey circle is of significance. The average
diameter is given as 288 feet. I feel sure that if a precise check
to be made, the true measurement would be found to be 287.8 grid
feet; a grid foot being a fraction larger than a standard foot. As
shown elsewhere in this book, the value of 2878 is equal to 2C, that
is twice the speed of light harmonic of 1439.
Next, we note that the Sarsen Circle had thirty standing stones;
thirty is also the basic spacing of the UFO grid system. The diameter of the circle is given as 97 feet 4 inches. It is not indicated
whether the measurement is taken from the edge or from the centre
of the stone uprights. Again I have a hunch that if the measurement is again checked and translated into grid feet it will come to
96.6 feet, which would give a radius for the Sarsen Circle of 48.3
grid feet. As shown elsewhere, the square of the speed of light
reciprocal harmonic of 695 is equal to 483.
It appears as though Stonehenge was constructed to the universal
geometric harmonics of light itself. The radius of the Aubrey Circle
is that of the speed of light; the radius of the Sarsen Circle
corresponds to the square of the reciprocal of the speed of light.
And what of the fact that the large stones appear to be of a
crystalline structure, and apparently emit a form of radiation, as
shown by the fogging effect on the photographs taken by Williams? He
himself suggests that the quartz crystal is similar to that used in
the early crystal type of radio much revered by small boys in years
gone by — myself included. I believe he is very close to the truth.
The small chips of blue-stone found in the Y and Z holes could also
have a crystalline structure and be caused to resonate to harmonic
fields set up by the inner and outer circles based on the harmonics
of the angular velocity of light itself. Could Stonehenge have been
designed as a gigantic crystal set? A massive geometric device
constructed in ancient times to serve as a transmitter and receiver
of signals from the heavens? This I believe to be a probability, not
just a possibility. There is still further evidence pointing towards
When men build a modern radar station on a flat ground level
site it is necessary to surround the central radar scanner with a
circular earthen wall in order to create an artificial horizon. This
low barrier cuts out all random clutter from the radar screen, and
provides the operator with a positive horizon from which to
calculate angular altitude. Stonehenge, too, is surrounded by a
similar wall although it is formed of the ubiquitous chalk that is
found in abundance in this part of England. The chalk mound forms
the rim of a circle some 320 feet in diameter. This white wall, when
it was first built, must have been some 20 feet wide and 6 feet
high, according to measurements of its remains.
The fifty-six Aubrey holes were also filled with chalk rubble, so
perhaps there is some kind of electromagnetic affinity between the
molecules of chalk and the quartz crystal in the stones of the
Sarsen Circle, and the stone chips placed in the Y and Z holes.
Another type of modern electronic equipment is a navigation device
used for aircraft, and known as VOR, standing for Very High
Frequency Omni-directional Range Station. The equipment consists of
a ground station, and special apparatus in an aircraft which
analyses signals transmitted from the station. By constant variation
of the phasing of the signals transmitted from the ground station,
the equipment in the aircraft can lock on to individual, one-degree
radials from the station. By this means an aircraft can either fly
away from or towards the ground station on definite, set magnetic
It is perfectly possible that Stonehenge was an ancient equivalent of the modern VOR station. The Sarsen Circle’s thirty
quartz upright stones may be likened to thirty radial high-frequency
transmitters. The fifty-six Aubrey holes may have set up
certain interference patterns, with signals being emitted from
the tuned crystals in the Sarsen stones. Many permutations
would result when the radiating patterns of the signals from
the Aubrey holes and the thirty Sarsen stones were combined,
which could have set up a very great number of electromagnetic
radials for navigational purposes. Such signals would travel far out
into space, as they would have been tuned to the harmonic of light
itself, Something else of great significance to me was revealed in
the Hawkins book. He refers to a certain line-up of
stones, revealed by computer analysis, at equinox sunset.
When positions designated by Hawkins at “94” and “C” are lined up
with the sun, the displacement in azimuth clockwise from north, in
degrees, is given as 269.5! Here we have the harmonic of 2695
showing up again: better still, it is the result of a computer
programme. Could this be merely chance, as scientists insist? How
many chances am I allowed before someone in authority will admit
publicly that perhaps — even a qualified perhaps — I just may have
discovered something — something that may turn out to be of immense
value to mankind.
Stonehenge could have been both a cosmic clock and a navigational ground station. To produce the harmonic resonance required
to cause radiation from the stones, the geometric pattern must be
aligned astronomically with certain key positions related to the sun
and moon; thus a two-fold purpose can be attributed to the
More evidence of what I have suggested here is sure to come to light
in the future, but I believe enough has already been presented to
suggest that a closer examination of the inherent mathematics of
Stonehenge will uncover a veritable goldmine of information. I admit
the possibility that in fact scientists have already done exactly
this; the fact that we, the public, have heard nothing from them
would be nothing unusual.
Another line of research which would be equally rewarding would be a
mathematical probing of the Great Pyramid, of course carried out
using the harmonic measurements inherent in the UFO grid. May I
remind you that the word “pyramid” has the literal meaning “measure
One day, hopefully in my own lifetime, an academy will be
established of scientists whose only allegiance will be to the
truth, and to the reporting of the truth to the public, and whose
principal functions will be to undertake research on the ancient
monuments whose secrets we have never been able to properly plumb.
Any true man of science would already have taken recognition of the
facts and figures I have pointed out in this chapter. He would
already have undertaken research along these exciting paths. The
monuments of ancient times bulk large; they stare us in the face;
their secrets defy us.
The human response is to shrug them off.
“Merely temples and places of worship, erected by slave
the “explanation” that we generally get.
Somewhere there may be surviving masters of the ancient world,
enjoying a quiet chuckle at our obstinate blindness.
Since the publication of this book I have carried out a further
probe into the mathematical structure of Stonehenge with the aid of
a calculator. I have found that the values, as shown, although only
to four-figure accuracy, are indeed built into the complex. A
mathematical breakdown of the concentric circular patterns
the spacing of the standing stones and the Aubrey Holes, has been
accomplished, and the findings show that the values are in accord
with those demonstrated in the harmonic unified equations. There
is now no doubt in my mind that this structure is of immense
scientific importance, and that the understanding of the
mathematical message, inherent within the geometric pattern of the
stones will one day enable man to conquer the universe. It is my
intention to publish this data in a later book.

19.- FROM ALPHA TO OMEGA
ALPHA CENTAURI, THAT CURIOUS STAR MILLIONS of light-years from earth
which has excited scientists because of radio signals that
apparently originate at its surface, may well be one of the goals of
the space age. One of the scientific crutches that will help our
first space travelers to limp to that destination may well be
For well over a year controversy raged in New Zealand as to whether
the aerials of an Omega navigational station should be permitted to
decorate one of the picturesque South Island valleys, like a
gigantic web spun by some psychotic spider (see diagram). Reports
and comments have been thrown about, words have been distorted and
quoted out of context to support one or another partisan cause, and
evasions at Government level have done nothing to help clarify the
Omega story. Mainly the controversy has centered around this point:
would an Omega station assist Polaris submarines?
If so, would not
such a station become a primary target in the event of a major war,
even if New Zealand were neutral? Eight of these so-called
navigational radio stations are to be positioned in various
localities around the world; the South Island of New Zealand was
selected as the location for one of them. Already there are four
stations in operation — in Norway, Trinidad, Hawaii and near New
Supposedly, the full system of eight stations is to be set up for
the sole purpose of providing a global navigational network for
shipping, submarines and aircraft. No doubt the Omega stations will
fulfill this purpose at maximum efficiency, as the concept is
certainly far in advance of the wartime system known as LORAN, or
Simultaneous readings from these or additional stations will give a
position on any point of the earth’s surface within a half-mile
However, a very large number of New Zealanders, including scientists, university professors and the general public, have
a fear that the installation of such a station in New Zealand would
immediately make this country vulnerable to nuclear attack in the
event of World War III. The fear comes from the belief, erroneous
or not, that the hidden purpose of Omega is to enable nuclear
submarines to obtain accurate fixes of position while still
submerged, in order to carry out an attack.
If this were true, then
any country with such a station would obviously become a priority —
A target for the enemy.
THE BASIC OMEGA TRANSMITTER
A - The aerial transmitter 10 kw.
B - Carrier wires improve efficiency of aerial A but do not transmit.
C - Small control hut.
The wrist-thick wire aerial is the only part transmitting. If a
station is built on flat land a 1000 ft. high aerial is set up with
an umbrella-shaped web of supporting wires around it, and the cost
is much more than that of the mountain-slung aerial shown.
But is this the real purpose of Omega, in fact?
Possibly, but not probably. Nuclear submarines do not need this
type of system. Inertial navigation systems already in use are far
more accurate and reliable, and cannot be tampered with by any
hostile nation or its agents. The official voice on Omega is
accurately when it declares that Omega is not essential for military
forces of any nation.
Then why should the Americans be so very anxious to establish
Omega stations in other countries, and against the popular wishes
of the people of those countries? There is certainly a widespread
belief that something is being concealed about the Omega plan, and
that all the facts are not being revealed. Already the press has
informed us that persons involved with the operations of these
stations will be covered by the Official Secrets Act (New Zealand
Herald, 2 July 1968). Would this be reasonable if Omega were not of
a military nature? I for one do not believe so. Then can there be
some other reason besides the officially stated one for building a
particular station at a particular position?
As might be expected, a rather large shoal of red herrings has
confused the whole Omega issue even further — deliberately, I
suspect. Three different “likely” sites for New Zealand’s Omega were
selected for assessment in the South Island, and a couple more were
suggested for localities in South Australia for good measure. When
the normally easy-going New Zealand public began to show signs of
uneasiness about the project, inferences were given by way of the
daily press that the Omega project would be handed over to
Australia, with the station to be built in New South Wales or
This possible switch in plans may have been designed to
have a psychological appeal to the New Zealand public; the
implication was that New Zealand was being so difficult over the
whole affair that this peaceful little dominion didn’t jolly well
deserve an Omega station, so Uncle Sam would give it to Australia
instead. If this indeed was the ruse, it was not altogether a
howling success: the public tended to breathe a little more easily
at the thought that after all their country would not become a
potential target; but still there were loud demands that the
Government should turn down any offer for Omega, even if the station
were to be presented as a gift. Let the Aussies have it, by all
means; who wants a wooden horse sitting in their back yard?
There were months of this argument and counter-argument. Everyone
got into the act, including university students who paraded carrying
anti-Omega placards. Eventually some decision had been to be made.
It was announced that a site close to Lake Pearson in New Zealand’s
South Island had been chosen for Omega. This locality
happened to be the “cheapest” one “assessed” right from the
The decision came as no surprise. Back in 1968 I had been approached
by a group of university students who asked me to plot the proposed
positions assessed for the station, to see if there was any
connection with the UFO grid which I had discovered, of if there
were any other geometric evidence to explain Omega as anything other
than a sophisticated civilian navigational system.
I informed the students that I was not particularly interested in
their battle over the Omega issue, as I had more than enough
evidence of my own to check into regarding UFO activity without
getting mixed up in what had all the earmarks of becoming a
All the same, I did make a rough check of the geometric positions of
the sites that had been mentioned, and I found that the Lake Pearson
area was the only one that showed any connection with grid
harmonics. I left it at that, after telling the students that I had
no further interest in the matter. If this was indeed the area which
was eventually to be selected, then, at that time, I might become a
little more interested.
In April 1969 the decision was announced: Lake Pearson was to be the
site of the Omega station. The scientists had sifted through all the
pros and cons for this site and that and, they said, Lake Pearson
was the one — the most magnificent and suitable location upon which
to place the box of tricks reverently called Omega. Sonow I was most
definitely interested. Out came my worn maps and log tables.
The latitude and longitude of the lake were checked once more, and a
recalculation made of the harmonic probabilities of the area. I was
convinced that the scientists were up to something that they had no
intentions of revealing to the public at large. I calculated a
position just north-north-west of the lake which I thought to be a
likely site for the station, and forwarded the information to the
air attaché at the American Embassy in Wellington, in the hope of
sparking some sort of comment from somebody in authority there. I
was not sure what harmonic principle the station would be built to
incorporate so I had to work by hunch alone. However, I was certain
that when the exact sight was known a mathematical connection with
the grid system would be evident. A direct answer was not
forthcoming, but a few weeks later I met the air attaché by chance
in Auckland and he told me that the calculations I had sent to
Wellington were “not too bad.” I felt that at least I was getting
Some months later I received further information and found that the
position I had chosen was evidently an error. Canta, the newspaper
published by the Students’ Association of Canterbury University,
published a lengthy article on the Omega issue, and their
illustration of a rough map (see map) showed the actual position to
be at the south-eastern end of the lake.
The area where the aerial was to be suspended was enclosed by
four mountains. At the northern end, Purple Hill (5505 ft) and
Mt. St. Bernard (5119 ft); and at the southern end, Constitution
Hill (4409 ft) and Broken Hill.

Local residents believe that the two-mile aerial will be slung
somewhere between Purple Hill and Constitution Hill. The properties
at either end of the aerial were said to be leased from the
University of Canterbury itself (Educational Reserve 1577). It
seemed to me that it was quite a coincidence that the land to be
used was university owned. In any event, the Canta report spelled
out for me a very small area which I would easily be able to check
in order to find any interesting mathematical harmonics.

access to computers which help to simplify the work and allow a
wider coverage of all the geometric parameters discovered so far in
the search for harmonic relationships. The best theoretical

43° 08’ 37.61” south / 171° 48’ 20.653” east.
Recent research has indicated that the latitudes of several
scientific stations have been calculated in such a way that the
relative displacements from the Equator and the North, or South
Pole, will create a geometric harmonic.
So, the latitude of 43° 08’ 37.61”, or, 43.14378 degrees would have
a displacement as follows:
Distance from the South Pole = 46.85622 degrees Distance from the
Equator = 43.14378 degrees Difference = 3.712440 degrees
harmonic 371244 is the mathematical reciprocal of the geometric
value derived from the Unified Equation: 2693645. The position,
because of the latitude, would allow a tuned electromagnetic wave
transmission to resonate in harmony with the Unified Fields. (These
values are explained more fully in my later book. “The Bridge to
Infinity, Harmonic 371244”.)
The longitude position also created an interesting
harmonic. As all
calculations are related to each section of 90 degrees we process
the longitude as follows:
minus 90.000000 degrees
The Tangent of this angle is :

0.45 minutes on the computer) is 7844.6296 minutes of arc, or
If this value is multiplied by 6, three times, in order to raise the

results which look promising.
Once I had taken a good hard look at my theoretical calculations and
felt some satisfaction with the results, I thought the next steps
would be to put the station into my original grid map to see just
how it fitted into the system.
The various positions I have calculated over the years have all been
within a few hundred feet of each other so the relationship to the
World Grid System remains the same on the large scale map. It at
once became obvious that the position was an ideal one. The station
fitted on to the grid as though one had been tailor-made for the
other (see map). I produced the grid map years before Omega was ever
heard of, and I have no claims to being clairvoyant. It can be no
accident that the site fits in so neatly with the grid system; I’m
certain that the station was planned years ago by those in charge of
the earth-bound project to explore the grid system. From Alpha to
Omega — from the beginning to the end; from earth to the stars.

necessary knowledge to make citizens of space of us all. When will
they let us in on the secret?

20.- THERE IS SOMETHING IN THE AIR
ON SATURDAY 7 DECEMBER 1969, the Brammall family
were settling in to watch their favorite TV programme,
High Chaparral. Just before it was due to start, at around
8:25 p.m., all power in the district was suddenly cut off. A violent
lightning storm was lighting up the sky to the south-east, with
bright, long-drawn-out flashes following one another in a
Ted Brammall went outside to watch the storm and immediately saw a
brilliant object which he later described as resembling a “large
fluorescent light.” Jennifer Brammall came out of the house to join
him, and they watched it for five minutes. When the power came on
again, Ted telephoned to the Power Board, and was informed that the
entire district had been blacked out, probably as a result of a
violent electrical storm in the vicinity of Rotorua. The object the
Brammalls watched was large, and very bright. It hung in the air,
with a backdrop of dark clouds; stars, showing through breaks in the
clouds, which Ted glanced at from time to time, gave him an idea of
its great size.
After hovering motionless the object moved “slowly and
deliberately,” tilting over so that cone-like projections on its
bottom surface, covering a great deal of the area and looking like
“oval dark areas,” could be clearly seen. To the further
astonishment of the watchers, the light emanating from the object
pulsated to match the brilliance of the lightning flashes.
Spine-like projections of colored light — blue, green and red —
radiated sideways and downwards. Apart from this single, slow-motion
roll, the object remained stationary. Later, in a statement to an
investigator (Sam Rix), the Brammalls declared that the object gave
the impression that it was constructed, a machine of some kind. They
later made independent drawings of what they had seen; their
statement and their sketches are in my files — along with many other
eye-witness reports and sketches from different parts of the
country. Sightings like this are now a very frequent occurrence, but
since officially UFOs don’t exist, the news media are inclined to
leave them alone.
But the Brammalls know they saw something — an object that
conforms in all respects to typical descriptions of UFOs. At least
they know that they are not alone. Here’s another detailed report
again accompanied by sketches made soon after the sighting, and
signed as a truthful record by Y. R. Plant, E. F. Plant, S. Plant,
R. Plant, and M. C. Clapp, all of Auckland. The sighting took p lace
at Te Kaha, East Coast.
At about 9:00 p.m. on the evening of 22 January 1969, we noticed a
bright flashing light that appeared to be traveling behind the
ridge of the hills opposite. It became stationary, and brilliant
flashing continued as it appeared to revolve.
At the same time, at intervals of approximately two minutes, a
lightning-like flash from a point slightly further south lit up the
sky. It came from behind a small black cloud above the mountains,
and the flashes were directed at the revolving light. A similar
occasional flash was seen much further south.
There were five of us, my wife and I, my two teenage sons and their
friend, watching this phenomenon for about an hour, when we realized
that there was much activity going on in the sky. What appeared to
be a small star would suddenly fall at exceptional speed, and then
hover in the sky. At one time there were about six of these falling
lights, one of which disappeared towards the south in a hopping
In the eastern sky there was a large bright light with rays
emanating from it, and below this a small “star” hovered up and
down. As we watched, a long, dark cloud formed above the mountain
After observing this continual activity for three hours, two lights
were seen to rise from behind the hills. One light was red and the
other a bluish-green rotating light, and they gave the impression of
being attached to one object, as they moved in conjunction with each
other. This remained stationary for thirty minutes before moving
slowly up behind the long cloud. At this time the flashing on the
ground ceased. Twenty minutes later, five red lights, evenly spaced,
rose above the mountain range, hovered for about five minutes then
traveled back and forth above the hills. This was still occurring
when we eventually retired, four and a half hours after first
sighting the flashing light.
Group observations are obviously of much greater interest to any
investigator than casual, individual sightings. Stories and data can
be checked from one observer to the other, and greater faith can be
placed in such reports when they are found to match in important
aspects. New Zealand’s most fascinating group sighting came in
December 1968, when a number of primary school pupils at Te Muta
School, Havelock North — the centre of a region which has yielded
sighting after sighting in the past four years — reported seeing a
flying saucer at close range. All six children agreed on the
object’s size and shape — and on having been “scared” by it.
reported that they saw both a hatch and an antenna as the
saucer-shaped object hovered at low altitude over some poplar trees,
that it made a clicking noise, and that it was about half the size
of the school’s swimming-pool — which they were attending at the
time as a non-swimming class. They drew the attention of their
teacher to the object; suddenly it shot upwards, and traveled off
in the direction of the nearby town of Hastings, leaving a vapor
trail behind. A teacher reported that he watched the same object for
about ten minutes as it moved backward and forward across Hastings.
The nearby aerodrome and the Civil Aviation Department at Napier
confirmed that there were no aircraft in the area at the time of the
Gavin King, aged ten, described it like this for the Hawke’s Bay
Herald-Tribune, which ran the story on 20 December: “It was round,
with three things on top ... there were lights all round the bottom
and here was a sort of hatch on the side ...It made a clicking
noise, like a clock.” 1
Graham Hebden, aged ten:
“At first the object
looked like a bird, but it grew to the size of about half the
school’s swimming-pool as it finally hovered over the trees.”
Peter Taylor, aged nine:
“It had ‘things’ hanging from it. They had
‘round things’ attached to them.”
Gavin King and other pupils later made sketches of what they had
seen. Meanwhile, a Havelock North woman said she had seen something,
evidently the same object, for about five minutes. Mrs.
M. Berg, of Lipscombe Crescent, said she stood at her door and
watched the object approach from the south-east. “It was the noise
it made that caused me to look up,” she said. ‘It was a funny
noise — something different.” She watched the object until it was
straight above her house.
Similar clicking noise was associated with UFOs, as described in
She said that the bottom of the object was like the bottom of boat,
and that it had square wings.
These reports were made just four months after some other odd
occurrences nearby, at Taradale.
John Dow, aged 19, apprentice joiner, and his friend Paul Franklin,
were out at the Taradale dump one September evening, looking for
rats to shoot. It was around 9:30. Suddenly the two youths heard
something they were later to describe as “sounding like thunder.”
The ground beneath their feet shook; looking up into the sky they
saw some thirty moving lights, at intervals disappearing from view.
They watched the spectacle for about half an hour, and finally,
mystified and excited, they went home. Lights had been seen in the
sky over this area many times during the past few months: just one
year before, verified sightings of UFOs were reported from the
nearby Hastings area. At that time I plotted these on the grid map
of New Zealand and found, not too much to my surprise, that the
verified positions all fell neatly on parallel latitudinal lines of
So strange objects in the sky were not too unusual in this area. The
following night the two boys returned to the dump; it was a
Saturday, and they planned to keep a vigil. They saw nothing of
interest and went home slightly deflated. On Sunday night they were
driving in John Dow’s car; Paul, looking back, spotted a bright
white light, but there was nothing of particular note to record. Two
nights later they were driving near the Waiohiki golf course when
they saw a green light in the sky; the colour changed to red, and
soon they saw a “pencil of light” flash across the sky. The
following statements were given in evidence at the Napier
Magistrate’s Court, when John Dow, charged with dangerous driving,
pleaded not guilty.
In court he said:
“As we were passing the Taradale motor camp, Paul, who was staring out the back, suddenly
let out a scream that this (the pencil of light) was coming at us. I
saw it in the mirror. Paul dived out of his side; his feet kicked
Dow was pitched half out of the car: “I started to get up,” he went
on, “and Franklin said: Tor God’s sake stay down! They are
Now out of control the car plunged on for about two hundred
yards along Taradale’s Gloucester Street, and finally crashed
the plate glass window of a fruit shop. It was this sudden end to
the chase that brought the two youngsters first to hospital, and
later to the Magistrate’s Court in Napier.
Prosecuting was Sergeant W. T. Pender. After Dow described the light
which chased the car as being about two and a half feet across,
Sergeant Pender asked him what he thought it was. “A flying saucer,”
The prosecutor asked whether the colored lights could have
originated from an explosion in the dump. No, Dow asserted, they had
watched the lights in the sky for about half an hour. Mr. W. K I. Dougall dismissed the dangerous driving case against Dow. However,
before sending Dow on his way, the magistrate had something to add.
“Most of these lights people see
have a natural cause,” he declared, “and the ‘flying saucer in hot pursuit’ might have been
the lights of a car coming around the corner ...The sooner he (Dow)
talks to a sensible adult about the matter, the better.” However,
two pertinent facts remain: the story given by the two youths in
explanation for their car crashing through a shop window was
accepted by the police; the magistrate admitted that Dow had got
into such a state of mind that he had acted involuntarily when
“something had distracted him.”
The second point is that the insurance company concerned with
damages to the car also accepted Dow’s story. This at least was
something new in New Zealand. A statement I have on file from Paul
Franklin shows that other people in the district, including at least
two policemen, had witnessed the lights in the sky over Taradale.
There have been countless other sightings, not only of objects in
the sky — but of evidence showing that strange objects have landed.
Pouraua South Road stretches for a mile across a gravel surface
on the Hauraki Plains. It heads into an uninviting scrubland where
manuka bushes predominate. Here a fifty-acre block of land is
owned by a former dairy farmer, Bert O’Neil, who on 4 September
1969 made a startling discovery. Something, it appeared, had landed
on his property leaving a bleached circle of manuka about fifty feet
across, there were three V-shaped grooves of disturbed peat soil in
the centre of the circle, each about two or three inches deep and
spaced precisely nine feet apart. Nowhere had the manuka been
crushed, leading Mr. O’Neil to theorize that “three legs had been
slid into the ground and then splayed outward.”
A reporter for one
of Auckland’s weekend newspapers wrote:
“The manuka, which is
extremely healthy elsewhere, seems to have been bleached grey-white
and dry by heat inside the clearly defined circle. The scrub has
definitely not been burned.”
The Ngatea circle caused considerable excitement — more than any
previously reported UFO sighting in New Zealand, in fact, for here
at least was something tangible. Hordes of people came by car for
days after, trampling about the area in search of heaven knows what.
As usual, official investigators were among the late arrivals, and
before long the explanations were coming at rapid-fire pace. The
area had been hit by a “blight,” thus the grey-white manuka; the
marks in the ground had been made by pigs, rooting for feed; and so
on. A fungus was found to be growing on the manuka, and this was
acclaimed as the cause of the condition of the scrub — although no
one was able to state why only a near-perfect circle had been
attacked. Then it was found by scientific examination of the manuka,
that the branches and trunks were dry of sap and had been “cooked”
from the inside out — rather as if they had been exposed to extreme
A TV garden-show host, Reg Chibnall, made independent tests on the
soils from inside the circle and from outside; he found that seed
grew normally in the latter soils, but produced miserable,
diseased-looking plants in pots containing soil from inside the
circle. The then Minister of Science favored the fungus-and-pigs
version and dismissed the whole affair. Meanwhile, scientists at
Auckland University concluded that dead spiders in the bleached
manuka area had been killed from radiation. Mr. Don Lockwood, of
Waihi, made another interesting discovery: twenty-two feet out from
the centre-line position of the ground marks, the manuka showed
signs of where the radiation had ended and the rest of the tree had
died. This point of demarcation was just above ground level, but
increased in height up the trees the further to the south the checks

carbon, without the outside showing any sign of burning. The cells

sudden for combustion.”
Mr. Stuart-Menzies added that the process appeared to have been
similar to that employed in infra-red-cooking, “but on an enormous

It is well known to me that radar operators at various airfields
throughout New Zealand are constantly picking up unidentified
objects in the sky on their screens. Official reports are filed, but
these men seldom speak of what they have seen — more than ridicule,
they fear losing their jobs; such is the official wall of silence.
On numerous occasions airfield authorities have become so excited
over radar blips of unknown flying objects that incoming aircraft

Other airfield workers frequently see objects in the sky that are
certainly not aircraft — or birds, or marsh gas, or Venus in
descent. In front, of me now are two independent reports made by
workers at Auckland International Airport concerning something that
attracted their attention on 3 December 1967. To protect the two
workers concerned, I shall not give their names; their signed
reports are in my possession, and are available to bona fide
“While working at the airport, I saw two silvery-to-pale lemon
lights cross the sky from south-south-west to a north-north-east
direction. They were convex on both sides and on the upper side was
a small dome. They flew together for a short time until the lower
one began to make sharp alterations in its altitude, zigzagging up
and down. They were in sight for about four to seven seconds...They
finally disappeared from sight in a bank of clouds to the north.”
The second report is confirmatory:
“Two saucer-shaped objects, silver in
color, traversed the sky from
SSW to NNE. They flew in formation for a little while; the lower
saucer then moved jerkily about the other saucer until they both
disappeared behind a big bank of clouds on the horizon to they
north. Both objects travelled at an extremely high speed, in excess
of a thousand miles an hour.”
Both reports include drawing of saucer
shaped craft featuring a prominent dome. So much for a mere sampling
of sightings and more dramatic events close to home; in every other
country of the world there have been reports of a similar nature —
strange objects in the air, on the ground, in the sea; the sudden
appearance of alien beings; the discovery of peculiar artifacts,
One of the most irritating kinds of report is the incomplete
account. South American newspapers abound with half stories about
UFOs — sudden appearances of saucers, their disappearance in the
jungle, the setting forth of posses to track them down; and then
silence. In October 1968, a group of climbers searched the Andes for
a flying saucer base; they reported that they had found, but as a
by-product so to speak, a “fortress” of a previously unknown
civilization. This was in a region of Chile known as Talca, 150
miles south of Santiago.
There had been repeated accounts of UFOs in
the area, cars stopping and starting without explanation,
out-of-season flowers blooming. The “fortress” comprised two
platforms, each about seven hundred square yards, and made from 233
blocks of volcanic rock, each block with an average weight of ten
tons. February, the following year: on the assumption that the Andes
platform might in fact have been a kind of launching area for UFOs
(“cosmodrome” was the word seized upon by the wire services), an
expedition led by Humberto Sarnataro Bounaud, a thirty-two-year old
businessman and painter, prepared to explore the giant blocks, as
well as a cave said to be located beneath the platform. Many
peasants and villagers in the area claimed they had seen flying
saucers apparently taking off and landing in the mountain near the
Unhappily, the press has never informed us what became of Bounaud’s
expedition. Did it ever set off? What did they find? What was the
secret of the cave?
Meanwhile, around the same time, doctors in Colombia were
reported to be baffled by the case of a man who died from a mysterious sickness after he reported seeing a flying saucer.
was Arcesi Bermudez, fifty, who became ill after he said he saw a
blue and orange UFO with flashing lights in his back garden in Anolaima, southwest of Bogota. He claimed to have approached to
within ten feet of the craft, and then turned back to get a
flashlight. As was returning the UFO flew off.
A week later Bermudez was dying, suffering from attacks of vomiting
and diarrhea; gastro-enteritis was the diagnosis, but Bermudez’s
low temperature puzzled the doctors. Until the moment of death he
maintained his story of approaching close to a landed UFO. If there
was an inquest, the findings were never published in the papers I
read; the dead man’s symptoms sound suspiciously like radiation
Closer to home, on 28 December 1968, a man in Goulburn, New South
Wales, saw and spoke to a being from Saturn; at least that was the
story being investigated by the late Dr. Miran Lindtner, president
of the Unidentified Flying Objects Investigation Centre in Sydeny,
and Dr. D. Herbison-Evans, an astronomer from the physics department
of Sydney University.
The man had the encounter with the alien, he said, while on a
hunting trip near Goulburn; ten years before he had a near-identical
experience in exactly the same spot, while hunting for foxes.
According to Dr. Lindtner:
“He says he shot at and hit something,
which let out a terrific noise. Then there was a flash of light and
something — we don’t know what — burnt through the arm of his coat
and left a small mark on his arm. The mark took a year to heal, but
before it healed it grew in size and now measures three inches by
two and a half inches. It is exactly the same shape as the planet
Saturn — a globe with a ring around it.”
On his more recent trip
into the area, the man saw a craft of about forty feet in diameter
and some ten feet in height. As he approached the craft, a being
walked around from the other side of it a humanoid, about five and a
half feet tall, with long hair and youthful features; it wore
silver-colored shoes. There was a conversation — in English — for
about three minutes, during which the bring revealed that it was
from Saturn. With that, the being hurried back to the craft, which
rose fifteen feet above the ground, hovered, and then moved off.
Before it disappeared from view, the man look four photographs of
The year 1969 was an eventful one for UFO researchers. An
Argentine researcher, Dr. Pedro Romaniuk, when the private John
Kennedy University opened its biopsycho-synthesis summer term of
lectures at Buenos Aires, declared that both the Soviet Union and
the United States possessed damaged flying saucers. The American
prize, he said, had been taken when it fell at Alamogordo, New
Mexico. According to Dr. Romaniuk, this fact had been brought to the
notice of the US Air Intelligence Centre by the director of the
North-Western Observatory, Dr. Silas Newton.
Quoting Dr. Newton, Romaniuk said that the
extraterrestrial craft had small exit traps
instead of doors, allowing the passage of small-sized beings only.
Inside the seamless, hard metal craft were found six small dead
bodies, said to be morphologically similar to man, and probably dead
from atmospheric decomposition following the failure of one of the
doors to work properly. According to Dr. Newton, the ship was
propelled by cosmic energy; the bodies were covered by a metallic
transparent blue suit, resistant to scissors and blow torches.
After Harmonic 33 was published I began to receive correspondence
from people in many parts of the world, anxious to pass on
clippings, photographs, information, theories. Much of the material
received in this way has been of doubtful value, and some of it has
been far-out “crank” work; there is one letter that I keep coming
back to, though, and I’d like to check its contents. I hope to for
myself— some day. The letter is from a Scandinavian “new
Australian,” and it has, in my opinion, a ring of veracity. I hope
to meet its writer in person one day — and hunt both the dingo and
the UFO he mentions. Here is his story — in his own words:
On my arrival in Australia in January 1958, I set out
for the far north-west of Queensland and the Northern
Territory in search of the dingo. It was during one of my
first explorations into the nearly inaccessible wilderness that I
found the canyon, with its “saucer.”
I had walked into the canyon for about four hours, and
believe I had covered between ten and twelve miles, when I noticed
“something” under an overhanging shelf, making the place partly a
cave. I use the word “something” be cause it was rather hard to make
out what it was exactly, due to its coloring.
The object was kind of grey. It could be greyish-green, greyish-blue
or greyish-red; one could easily walk past it from a distance
without seeing it.
I watched it for some time before I continued into the canyon, which
became deeper, and I never reached the end. On my return I looked
for the object, but could not see it. Being a good bushman, I knew I
was at the exact spot where I had seen it before, but there just
wasn’t anything there. I satisfied myself that it must have been
something created by the light, but realized that the sun didn’t
reach down to the bottom of the canyon. To make sure, I picked up a
pebble, and threw it to where I supposed the object to be. The
result was the stone was stopped in mid-air, or when it hit the
object. It then slid down to the ground, and on impact with the
rocky ground the stone made a noise; although there had been no
noise when it stopped in mid-air.
I decided that whatever it was, it must have a shell or be a solid
mass, but soft enough not to make a noise when hit by a stone. I
then decided that whatever the object was, it was still there, but
not visible to the eye. I left it at that and returned to my camp
deciding to take a closer look the next day.
The next day I returned and found the object was again visible. I
had brought with me a long piece of fencing wire and my transistor
radio. I started to yell and to make my presence known to whatever
it was, and I admit I felt an idiot doing so, but nothing happened.
Then I switched my transistor radio on, and when music came from it,
the object started to react. I watched it closely. The object
gradually faded away, but the process was so slow that it was hard
to say exactly when it became invisible.
I had brought the fencing
wire with me to find out if the object were an electric phenomenon.
I tied this long wire to a stick and reached into the nothingness.
Then with a match soaked in saliva and wiped, I touch the wire. Had
the object been electrical, I should have felt a slight tingle in my
fingers, but I did not. Gaining confidence I took hold of the wire
with my hands, but still I could feel nothing. When I clamped my
teeth on the end of the wire and touched it with my tongue, I could
feel some rhythmical vibration coming through the wire.
The vibration seemed to change in rhythm when one
yelled, played music or threw a stone towards the invisible
object. But even without any noise, a vibration kept coining from
I’ve later seen the object change from visible to

I first encountered the object
late in 1958, and during my stay in the area for about eight
years I’ve visited the canyon approximately thirteen or fourteen times, and each time it has been there, either
visible or invisible. At first I believed that my presence made it
fade away, but since the first experience with it I’ve been able to
yell, play music and throw stones at it without it fading away. I’ve
looked at it by night, and it doesn’t give off any light, and it’s
only harder to see. I’m sure that whatever it is, it’s harmless. I
admit I tried not to interfere too much with it in case it was
capable of retaliating. What I could see of it, it had no windows,
doors, or any other parts such as holes, etc.
The underside of the overhanging shelf seemed to sweat; it is moist
whereas the whole area including the canyon is bone dry.
There have been years between some of my visits, and at times only
months, but it has always been there. Whatever this object is, it’s
nothing like anything we’ve ever heard of originating from this
planet. Could it be — a craft cunningly hidden in an isolated
canyon, protected by a force field until its crew comes back to
claim it? And where are the crew? Blending with the crowds on Bondi
Beach, mingling with captains of industry in Sydney, staked out
somewhere handy to the vast and top-secret American space research
station in the Australian desert — a space station so secret that
even Australia’s prime minister has admitted he knows little of what
is going on there?
One of the most recent records of a visit by an extraterrestrial
space craft consists of the Alberton photographs. Ellis E. Matthews,
of Alberton, South Australia, had some unused movie film left, in
his Paillard Bolex camera when he stepped on to the veranda of his
home one evening in 1967. From where he stood he saw about one mile
distant and between 15 and 20 degrees above the horizon a UFO. Using
a 1.9 aperture and with full zoom, he shot off his remaining film,
focused on the object — a total of some fifty frames.
It was some eight months later that he had the film developed — by
Ilford Australia, Oakleigh, Victoria. Both Mr. Matthews and his wife
have provided notarised statements as to what they saw in the sky.
The film was subsequently sent to me by Mr. Matthews, and with his
permission I forwarded a section of it to International UFO Research
and Analytic Network in New York for intensive analysis. After
detailed microscopic study Major Colman Vonkeviczky, Project
Director of ICUFON, forwarded a full report from which is quoted the

Matthew’s film was shot in color; the flying object on the crucial

beneath it. There are lights around the periphery of the disc, and
there is light streaming out from what appears to be a “port” on the
Most interesting of all: silhouetted in this “port” light is a
figure, vaguely humanoid in shape. By comparing the first frames of
the sequences with the last, it is observed that the figure is in
This is one of the best UFO series of photographs ever made. Experts
have declared it to be genuine, and Mr. Matthew’s integrity has
never been in question. He has never made any attempt to seek
commercial gain from his remarkable film, and has sought no
publicity whatsoever. What we have on this film strip is undoubtedly
a genuine series of pictures of a UFO, complete with a being who
might be its “pilot.”
This chapter has been a mélange of seemingly unrelated and
unsolved mysteries; a flying object of small size pursues a pair of
teenagers driving around a small country town — investigators follow up UFO reports in the Chilean countryside and discover a
“cosmodrome” — something lands in the bleak outbacks of the Haurake
Plains and leaves a wide circle of dying scrub, its woody parts
from the inside outward by radiation of an unknown kind —
schoolchildren, their teacher and an independent housewife see a UFO
is the skies of Napier, the children observing it at sufficiently
close quarters to be able to draw the object in detail — radar
equipment at airfields pick up UFO blips as a matter of routine. But
stop! UFOs don’t exist!
The Condon reports says so. One is reminded
of the story of the bumble-bee. This clumsy-looking creature, with
its vast bulky body and its fragile wings, is patently, and
according to all the laws and rules of aero-dynamics, incapable of
But in its blissful ignorance of the situation, the bumble-bee flies
anyway. Until it should develop a sound grasp of aero-dynamics, and
then realizes it is breaking the law, it will continue to fly. UFOs
don’t exist. They couldn’t possibly exist. They don’t fit into any
branch of earth knowledge. Therefore, they are not. Meanwhile, as
each month goes by, reports of UFOs all over the world continue to
mount up. Thousands of people every year see them, approach them,
are made nauseous by them; some even die from exposure to them.
Is the official denial of UFOs based on sincere disbelief? Or is
there a vast snow-job, a monumental cover-up, in operation? If Senor
Bermudez of Bogota left a widow and bereaved children, they might be
the ones to answer these questions.

21.- OOPARTS AND OOPTHS
IN 1961 ARCHAEOLOGISTS DIGGING AT THE PALATINE Hill, Rome,
uncovered a previously unknown room. In a niche of this room there
was a painting, the subject of which was so startling that no
explanation satisfactory to all shades of belief has yet been
In the centre ground stands what appears to be a modern spacecraft,
a rocket in fact. It stands on a launching pad, and from it runs
cables or guys; in the background there is a tall wall—for all the
world resembling a counterblast wall. Asks Ivan T. Sanderson, former
British naval intelligence officer and a distinguished biologist:
What was it that the Roman artist painted? Was it imagination?
Reality? A forecast of the future?’ A reproduction of the painting
appears in his book, Uninvited Visitors.
It deserves careful
scrutiny. Why a painting of a rocket ship should appear on the wall
of a hidden room dating from ancient times — how it could possibly
be there (yet it is!) — could be anyone’s guess. Yet, curiously
enough, there may be many more links between places of worship and
space travel than one might first dare to think.
This is not intended as an irreverent statement; there need be no
offence taken by anything written in this chapter by readers of
devout Christian or other beliefs. But we would like to present some
facts and some theories that might tend to open up fascinating lines
of investigation for serious research work.
Consider, first of all, a typical place of worship in any country of
the world today; and reflect that religious architecture has
followed a specific pattern from ages past. Mathematically speaking
architecture of the kind displayed by the great cathedrals of
for example, would present the greatest possible challenge to the
designers and the builders of the time, with the great naves, the
lowering structures, the superb arches. Chartres, dating from the
twelfth century, said by some to represent the finest flowering of
religious architecture, is believed to have been designed on principles of Platonic mathematics, in which the harmonies of the entire
universe were to be expressed.
Gaze upon the faces of the finely
sculptured kings and queens at Chartres, unidentified and unknown
representations; with expressions of supreme nobility they look down
upon the thousands of tourists who come each year. Look at the twin
spires of the mighty cathedral — and mentally compare their shape
and proportions with those of Apollo 12.
Look at any Christian
church with new eyes, and see the resemblance between the typical
church spire and a typical rocket ship. Study pictures of Islamic
mosques, oriental pagodas, Buddhist temples; places of worship in
India, Thailand, the Middle East: see how their towers soar upward,
towards where most people believe “heaven” to be located. Allowing
for differences between Occident and Orient in the interpretation of
detail, attempt to get a mental X-ray picture of the basic tower
structures — and see how alike they really are beneath the
superficial additions of various forms of buttresses, decorations of
gargoyles or carved relief.
Moscow’s Ivan the Great bell tower in the Kremlin, seen with
newly-opened eyes, is a three-stage rocket topped with a
semi-spherical capsule; the multi-stage rockets disguised as towers
surrounding St. Sophia’s, Constantinople, are suddenly obvious; the
beautiful gothic arches inside Cologne Cathedral repeat the rocket
Chinese pagodas, Indian temples and stupas, Armenian bell towers,
and simple country churches anywhere in the Christian world — all
suddenly appear to have been built expressly in imitation of
But granted the coincidence of shape — why? That is a question that
Vyacheslav Zaitsev, philologist at the Byelorrussian Academy of
Sciences, has sought to answer in a number of works (Cosmic
Reminiscences in Written Relics of the Past; The Evolution of the
Universe and Intelligent Beings; plus many magazine articles,
condensations of some of these appearing from time to time in the
magazine Sputnik). But this field of research was not opened up by Zaitsev; he gives credit to
Nikolai Rynin, a friend and pupil of
Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the Russian scientist who at the beginning
of this century established principles for the building of space
More than forty years ago Rynin was drawing attention to the
correspondences in the myths of various peoples in regard to earth
visits by beings from other worlds. In 1959 another Russian
scientist, Modest Agrest, considered that many events described in
the Bible were in fact references to visits made to this planet by astronauts from other worlds. Three years later the American
astrophysicist, Carl Sagan, published a similar hypothesis.
Let us be clear about this, there is no scientific backing for the
theory that has been put forward and which we now draw attention to
that the resemblance between religious architecture and machines
designed for space travel is no mere coincidence. For a recently
published version and up-dated account of evidence drawn from
ancient rock inscriptions, Biblical sources and other writings and
artifacts, see Erich von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods. This Swiss
archaeologist also puts forward the provocative theory that the
origins of man are linked with visits to earth by beings from other
planets in ancient times.
Returning to church architecture: where did the archetype come from
— the archetype that has been perpetuated with slight variation from
ancient times up to the present day? And what are the reasons for
the particular form of that archetype? When David ascended to
heaven, the Apocrypha relates, the angels showed him the “church
image” that was to become the archetype of the Temple of Jerusalem.
Returning to earth David built a model of this from memory, and
ordered his son Solomon to erect a House of the Lord along the same
lines. So, it is believed, the Temple of Jerusalem, built in the
tenth century BC, came to be conceived.
This is Zaitsev’s question it is, of course, a rhetorical one:
the ‘church image’ was the image of a space-ship? Perhaps some
human being was induced by the astronauts to go aboard the
‘celestial machine,’ where he saw the abode of God? Such an interpretation of this ancient Judaic legend about the origin of
Solomon’s Temple would appear still more believable in the light of
other texts, notably the Apocrypha.”
Hindus believed their temples were built in the image of those of
other worlds, again the design being revealed by a deity. The
classical work, Ramayana, tells of a “celestial chariot,” a
two-storeyed vehicle with “many rooms and windows” which “roared
like a lion” at launching, “issued a single-toned sound” and “blazed
like red flames” as it raced through the air until finally it looked
like ‘a comet in the sky’.1 Another source, the Mahabharata, says
the vehicle was “activated by winged lightning.” the Sanskrit work, Samarangana Sutradhara, contains a long description of the vehicle
which in Veda works is referred to as
1 VyscheslavZaitsev, “Temples and Spaceships”, in Sputnik, Sept.,
As Zaitsev points out:
“Christian and Judaic, like Buddhist and Brahmanist, architecture go back to one source, a certain ‘celestial
temple,’ the look of which on earth was best imitated by domed
Supposing space-ships from other planets landed on earth long ago,
to primitive man would not the effect have been closely similar to
that of “cargo cults” by modern aircraft landing in such places as
New Guinea and New Britain in recent times? In those latter cases
the arrival of aircraft led to a worship of the creatures who
arrived by the craft, and various religious practices were adopted
as a means of trying to induce the aircraft and their magical
cargoes to return. A word or two about the “cargo cults,” as
anthropologists have dubbed them.
Believed to have sprung up first
in Fiji in the 1880s, the pattern has always been repeated; a
prophet appears from among the people and proclaims the coming of
salvation, possibly in the form of a ship or an aircraft loaded down
with a host of goods ranging from refrigerators to canned food. He
orders certain rituals, and even such activities as the building of
a storehouse, an imitation landing strip or a wharf.
such cults are probably primitive attempts to set in motion the
necessary social changes required for coping with a situation of
cultural conflict the impinging of the modern and the “civilised”
upon the ancient and “barbaric” — all in the guise of a new
religion. In ancient times, one might conjecture, ships came to this
planet from another world (other worlds?), bringing strange beings
and strange — but vastly useful — goods.
Perhaps the ships left,
perhaps some remained; perhaps some remained in orbit, and some men
of this planet, recognized for their superior intelligence or powers
of leadership compared to others in their group, were ferried to the
space vehicles and presented with gifts — and given instruction in
simple technology, such as the invention of the wheel, irrigation
canals, better techniques of working with stone or metal, and so on.
Certainly there is reason to believe that something of the sort may
have happened, possibly some 15,000 years ago. For it was about that
time that man began a massive break-through in the handling of
himself and his environment, a fact that has never been
satisfactorily explained. In that long ago man suddenly, for no
apparent reason, began to develop new techniques in such matters as
splitting bones to create tools, although existing techniques had
been in vogue for nearly a million years.
Man is a puzzle to biologists, so tremendously different from his
nearest relatives, the giant apes, if we are to accept the Darwinian
theory of evolution. Among the primates, recent studies have shown,
man has 312 unique and exclusive characteristics that no other
primate possesses. For some reason he has evolved at a pace which,
compared with that of the evolution of other creatures on this
planet, can only be described as fantastically rapid. The
evolutionary process is known to be very slow, imperceptible over
the course of even hundreds of generations.
evolutionary achievement was to develop a brain which from a
capacity of 400 cubic centimeters (established from very early
skulls of ape-like men) evolved to a capacity of 1300 cc, in the
space of a million years — a mere tick of the evolutionary clock.
Yet it took some thirty million years, on the other hand, for
primates to evolve a hand with an opposable thumb which, according
to the evolutionists, is what gave man his advantage in the race.
Two American writers, Otto Binder and Max Flindt, have recently put
forward a theory postulating that the answer can only lie with a
visit to this planet in ancient times of another intelligence from
another world, and a conscious effort on the part of the visitors to
breed a race of men on earth, either from motives of altruism or in
a spirit of biological experimentation. If the spacemen were here,
did they ever really leave? Did their presence give rise to the
almost universal myth of racial origin, a descent by superior beings
from “the stars” or “the sky?” And did those feet in ancient times
walk upon England’s mountains green?
The question of biological experiments we leave to the biologists.
But dig into evidence for yourselves — and start an avalanche. We
suggest the following areas for fruitful investigation:
Myths and legends.
The ancient classical religious works from all countries inhabited
since long, long ago — particularly India, China, Sumeria, Babylon,
A fresh examination of “secret” systems of knowledge, religious and
scientific, including works on alchemy, astronomy, the secret books
of the Masonic orders and the Rosicrucians, and the system taught in
modern times by Gurdjieff. Religious architecture.
The “inexplicable” presence of what Ivan Sanderson calls OOPARTS (for Out Of Place Artifacts) and OOPTHS (Out Of Place Things).
For the remainder of this chapter let’s have a look at some of the
more outstanding “out-of-place objects:” In 1965 a Chinese
archaeologist published a report which speculated that space beings
may have visited this planet some 12,000 years ago. His principal
items of evidence came from
caves in the Bayan-Kara-Ula Mountains,
on the China-Tibet border. Here have been found some 700 stone discs
covered with mysterious designs and writings. Each disc has a hole
in the centre, from which spirals a double groove out to the
The caves are inhabited to this day by people of the
Ham and Dropa tribes — frail people, only some four feet in height;
they defy ethnic classification. The discs have been dated to
several thousand years ago. When finally deciphered, one of the
hieroglyphs, possibly set down by an ancient member of the Ham
“The Dropas came down from the clouds in their
gliders. Our men, women and children hid in the caves ten times
before the sunrise. When at last they understood the sign language
of the Dropas, they realized that the newcomers had peaceful
The discs were scraped free of adhering rock particles and sent to
Moscow for study. There scientists made two startling discoveries:
the discs contained a large amount of cobalt and other metals; and
they were found to vibrate in an odd rhythm, as though they carried
an electric charge or were part of an electric circuit. Primitive
art — cave drawings, clay figurines — provide an abundance of
material for the serious researcher into the possibility of space
visitors having been here long ago.
A rock picture found near the
town of Fergana, Uzbekistan, is of what looks like astronaut; an
artist in the Swiss Alps 4000 years ago drew a picture of a man in a
space helmet; the wall painting of a rocket ship in a niche of a
secret room beneath an old Roman church has already been mentioned:
a fresco in the Dechany Monastery, Yugoslavia, depicts angels flying
inside machines that closely resemble present-day spacecraft;
something very like a spaceship is seen on a seventeenth-century
icon. The Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the Moscow
Theological Academy, as representing the House of the Lord.
Japanese archaeologists have found at several excavations dogu-clay figurines — of humanoids clad in peculiar spacesuits, with
helmets entirely covering their heads. On the helmets are
representations of something akin to slit-type glasses,
breath-filters, antennae, hearing aids and even night-sight devices.
Rock pictures of “spacemen” have been found in the Sahara, in
Australia, in Soviet Central Asia and in other parts of the Old and
New Worlds. There are so many known drawings and carvings of this
kind, in fact, that they have become known as “the visiting cards of
When we come to look at OOPARTS, as opposed to representations on rock walls and in figurines, the former are “undeniably
manufactured or artificial objects said to have been found inside
solid, undisturbed rock strata, just as fossil animals and plants
Some of the more startling OOPARTS that have come to
flat-headed steel nails discovered deep in a sandstone
quarry in Scotland

large proportion of silver
a variety of objects found inside
of coal (which would date them back to at least twelve million years
ago), including a beautiful gold chain of intricate workmanship, a
prize for a Mrs. Culp of Illinois who found it when a lump of coal
she was putting into her stove, in 1891, broke in two
An object in
the Salzburg Museum, Austria, is another mystery — a perfect cube of
meteoritic nickel-iron, about two inches square, which is encircled
by a precisely turned deep groove, understood to have been machined,
found in a block of coal that would have to have been between twelve
and twenty-six million years old. A German engineer, engaged to
construct sewers for the city of Baghdad, discovered on a dusty
shelf in the local museum among objects labeled as “ritual objects”
some “stones” dating back a thousand years. Only one thing was known
for certain about these “stones” — they came from the Sassanid
period. The engineer added another piece of knowledge: the “stones”
were in fact batteries.
Other out-of-place items include a remarkable model of the solar
system dating from olden times and recovered from a sea-bed, in
which the movements of both planets and their satellites around the
sun are accurately effected by the turning of a crank; the
workmanship and materials preclude the construction of this
incredible device in recent times. Where did the detailed
astronomical knowledge come from? And where did the technology for
the making of the model come from?
