Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland this week. Like so many people in the close encounter experience, Steve Neill is a military brat. His father was in submarines in the US Navy. What, exactly, he did, but like so many other witnesses whose parents were in the military–especially the Air Force and the Navy–he started having close encounter experiences when he was a tiny child. He and Whitley have been friends since the late eighties, and here they get together to discuss things that you just won’t hear elsewhere. Like many others who come to Unknowncountry, they remember visits to other worlds and much more.

As a video artist and filmmaker, Steve has created marvelous videos about his experiences such as Something Is There and others. You can learn more about his work on his website Blogspot.SteveNeill.Art.com

Watch But Something is There here. Watch the trailer for his NEW FILM “Transfigured Night:” click here.

Subscribers join us in the Video Meeting Room on Saturday, Nov. 7  when Steve Neill will show us some artwork about his otherworld visits!

  1. Thankyou so much for having Steve on, that was one of the most enjoyable shows for a long time.

    Talking about other worlds, I have a couple of experiences that I want to briefly mention. One was a bright white marble courtyard next to an equally bright ‘hotel’ right on the edge of a beach. The sun was setting on the horizon and the whole place was happily bustling with people. I got the distinct impression that they were all from the ‘other side’ and even though I knew I didn’t belong there, I walked up some marble steps into the side of this building. There was a woman there looking at me at one point, with a very concerned look on her face… Maybe she thought I looked strange and shouldn’t really be there, I don’t know. At the top of the stairs, there was an opening into an area at the base of the building, that I knew to be a free energy power plant, which was an exciting thing to behold… But I couldn’t really figure out what I was looking at, enough to figure out what its principals of operation were, which was a little frustrating. Anyway, I don’t remember any more than that.

    The other one, I remember standing outside an enormous white ‘University’ of sorts. At the front, there were huge Greek-looking pillars holding up a sloping roof that came to a point in the middle… and in between each pillar were impressive glass panels, from the ground right up to the roof, that prevented access. I seem to remember being taken just inside and shown a book that had living, iridescently coloured scenes on them…but more than that, they seemed to convey emotion as the scenes moved. I wasn’t allowed to see it for long, just 20 seconds or so…and that was it. I have no real understanding or detailed memory of the contents of the scene in that book… but I felt privileged to have been shown it, if only for a brief time.

    I remember them both as dreams… but who knows… they were increadibly vivid.

  2. I was just listening to something on YouTube, where they happened to quote Carl G. Jung…and despite its outmoded form of speech referring to ‘man’, I found it quite interesting…

    “Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth, and if a man does not know what a thing is, it is at least an increase in knowledge if he knows what it is not.”

    … So I was wondering Whitley… you have said that even now, you do not know what the Visitors are…but…do you happen to know what they are not?

      What a good question! I think we have to keep the door open in both directions. My senses is that at least some of them are or were human.

      Some are certainly not but whether they’re from here or somewhere else or have a completely different relationship to reality that we don’t understand yet I don’t know.

  3. Very good. Here’s an interesting thing related to the statement in the subscriber section that relates gravity to yearning. Sporadically, people have tried to link Isaac Newton’s discovery of gravity to the mystic Jacob Boehme’s ideas about the formation of the universe, which involves things coming out of God that are labeled desire, attraction, and others. There’s no evidence that Newton got his theory of gravity from Boehme, though he was an alchemist—but, that doesn’t mean that there may not be something to the connection between a desire or yearning from God and the force of gravity.

  4. So interesting, thanks. The part about closing your eyes to see the other world makes me think of these two “Hidden Words”: “12. O MAN OF TWO VISIONS!
    Close one eye and open the other. Close one to the world and all that is therein, and open the other to the hallowed beauty of the Beloved”. and ”
    “11. O SON OF DUST!
    Blind thine eyes, that thou mayest behold My beauty; stop thine ears, that thou mayest hearken unto the sweet melody of My voice; empty thyself of all learning, that thou mayest partake of My knowledge; and sanctify thyself from riches, that thou mayest obtain a lasting share from the ocean of My eternal wealth. Blind thine eyes, that is, to all save My beauty; stop thine ears to all save My word; empty thyself of all learning save the knowledge of Me; that with a clear vision, a pure heart and an attentive ear thou mayest enter the court of My holiness.” — Bahá’u’lláh.

    1. The Ultimate Beloved of the Heart (A.H. Almaas)

      The Absolute is the realm of complete mystery, or of bedazzlement, as the Sufis say. And only here will the heart feel it has arrived home, at long last. There is wonder, there is beauty, there is Majesty, but it is all mystery upon mystery. The peace is stupendous, the certainty is absolute and the beauty is dazzling. It is the ultimate Beloved of the heart, the Spirit of spirits, and the mystery of all existence. It is the absolute Presence of absolute annihilation, which is then seen to be the primal cause of all. Obviously such words make no sense to the mind, but when consciousness finally reaches this its final abode, the heart will hear these words as music.

  5. The sound quality of Steve’s speech is so bad I can barely understand it. In fact, I am getting only about half of it.

    1. Thank you for taking care of the audio issue, Whitley. I, too, had trouble understanding what Steve was saying, due to the less-than-wonderful quality of his audio. I turned it off after a couple of minutes. Fortunately, the audio is good on most shows.

  6. Not sure what is going on, and I am logged in as a subscriber, but I am getting all of the commercials. I know that the full show, including the subscriber portion of the interview, is usually about an hour and a half long, but I only show this show will be 1.12 …

    Are you declining cookies? That will cause it to not work.

    1. I’m now having the same problem as the other subscriber, cannot hear the subscriber last part of interview and still getting the commercials. I have never had this problem previously.

  8. Like Cosmiclibrarian above, I signed in as a subscriber, but I am receiving all of the commercials. What gives? I renewed earlier this year.

  9. Author

    I am so sorry, the problem was on our end. It has been fixed.

  10. A wonderful interview. But beware Steve’s book. It is very expensive and the font used is very large, which gives the book the bulk it has. I was deeply disappointed and returned the book, but to each his own. I had hoped he would have written a truly meaty deep book but it was at a very elemental level. The almost “Dick & Jane” sized font to make the book seem large really bugged me.

    1. Maybe he chose that don’t because many when they get older have a very hard time reading the smaller scripts.

      1. Exactly. Thank you. I didn’t set the price on this book, Amazon does. I have no control over it and in fact I have never made more than a few dollars from the sales. They take 98 % andet the price. This is why I tell everyone that will listen to me to get the Kindle version for 5 bucks and often they make it free. I didn’t write this book to make money or fame. I don’t need either one. I only wanted to share my experience. In addition I only write about what I have experienced only. I don’t add conjecture or theory. Defining this experience for me is pure conjecture, but something is there as per the title.

  11. The Park is a well known place at the Monroe Institute. They even have specific frequencies to help you get there. It’s a “physical” environment of healing and orientation for newly arrived souls who still maintain a body. Not every departed soul goes there, but a lot of souls do.

  12. This calibre of interview is the reason why I subscribe. I am currently reading a book on Aboriginal healers that speaks of generations of healers going back tens of thousands of years. As an Australian who has never had an experience like many on here but fascinated by the history of our indigenous people and their Dreamtime I agree with what Steve has said about their cave paintings – and these paintings were all over our vast continent. Dolores Cannon once hypnotised a woman who went to a past life where she had returned to Mars to discover that the adjoining planet had blown itself up and had destroyed the atmosphere on Mars.

    1. Hello,

      I enjoyed this podcast. I, too, have been to the planet with the library. It does look like Mars, but I don’t think it is. I remember buildings that were built using the soil, like adobe buildings. Everything was the same color.

  13. Author

    I have seen a place and maybe been there, which is very dry and very bright and has white adobe buildings that look like one of those towns you see on Greek islands.

  14. Thank you all for the wonderful comments and your insight with shared experiences to mine. And I know well of Mars and the planet that blew up. It caused scaring on many other planets and moons besides Mars that stripped away it’s atmosphere and life there. It was told to me that some escaped to Earth and here we are. But we our a race of people are in a state of amnesia, we don’t remember our past or recognize the evidence all around us on Earth that indicates there was once a more advanced human civilization here. Unfortunately it can’t be proven, but I feel strongly there is something to it. It’s in my soul. Again thank you all for your kindness and love. You are the reason I’m here on UKC.
