Whitley's Journal

Journal entries relating to "visitors"

Thursday, January 17, 2013
There's an old fashioned 'UFO flap' going on at present. I don't think that it's because of new methods of communication like YouTube and the tendency of the internet to amplify provocative claims. There isn't really any online hysteria about it, at least not yet. In fact, the community of interested parties is quite calm so maybe this time...

UPDATE 12/18/12: Internet hucksters have been using this journal entry to claim that I think that there will be a UFO landing on December 21. This is absolutely not my intent. Sure,  it could happen, but I'm not predicting anything here. I am simply speculating and, no, I have absolutely no idea whether or not it will ever happen, let...

We might well be part of a much larger and older supercivilization that has reasons of its own not to explain itself to us, or perhaps cannot explain itself to us, in the same sense that we could never, without massive and fundamental re-education, explain radio to an ancient Roman. Or explain it at all to a chimpanzee, but let's hope that the...

There is tremendous worldwide sorrow over the loss of the seven astronauts aboard the space shuttle. It's much greater than the sadness that would attend the loss of a 747 with 350 people aboard. There is a reason for this, and it is a good one: our astronauts are at the leading edge of human endeavour. They are carefully chosen for their...

Christmas is coming, and with it the 17th anniversary of my close encounter experience of December 26, 1985. To this day, it haunts my sleep. My wife tells me that, if she should get up during the night, I will call out to her immediately, and grab her hand when she returns to the bed. I still remember those few minutes as if it had all...

I am routinely punished for writing that book, either by false and unfair reviews, or...

A couple of months ago, I quit putting material up on this website. The reason was that I was so overwhelmed with work that something had to go. Art and I were finishing our book, I was learning how to host a radio program, a lot of personal things were happening, and I was having the most intense series of contact experiences that have come...

Since my special has aired, I have been getting a lot of questions about whether or not the visitors are "real." I put that word in quotation marks for a reason. It is because it seems quite doubtful to me that we are going to be able to determine that in the same way that we can determine whether or not a stone is real. Look at the 1996 NASA...
