I recently drew up a list of all the witnesses who are mentioned in my books. Then I began looking through reviews and media stories for references to their existence. I found none. Not one. Of course, I may have overlooked some, but if the witnesses were ever mentioned, it was a rare event indeed.
And yet, mine is certainly among the most witnessed of all extraordinary experiences. I was not the only one to see the visitors at my cabin. Lorie Barnes and Raven Dana both had direct contact with them there, and not in my presence. Jacques Sandulescu saw the yard lit up like daylight at 4:30 in the morning in October 1985 when they showed up. Wm. Morrow & Company editor Bruce Lee encountered two of them in a bookstore in Manhattan, and watched astonished as they walked off down a busy street entirely unnoticed by the passers-by! He even took a lie detector test in defense of his testimony. I will never forget how he sounded when he said that the apparent female looked on him with "loathing." She looked on me, too, many times, but fortunately not with that.
At any rate, for the record, here is a list of everybody who has agreed to be mentioned in my books or in Ed Conroy’s Report on Communion. There are still more, but these are the ones who have specifically allowed their names to be used: (There are 11 more whose names are in various books. The ones listed here are all deceased. The names of living witnesses will be provided on request, however they are all available in the books.)
Michael Ryan: Remembers me telling him about soldiers after I returned from a trip during which I saw sleeping soldiers during an abduction. (Report on Communion, P 72-77)
Jacques Sandulescu: Saw the yard lit up like daylight at 4:30 AM on October 4 at our cabin in upstate New York. Heard a loud bang. (Communion, P 42-47)
Bruce Lee: Observed and briefly interacted with 2 nonhuman or semi-human beings in a bookstore in Manhattan while they were reading and discussing Communion. (Report on Communion, P 37-43)
Dora Ruffner: Experienced a visitation while in a group at my cabin. The others in the group were Ed Conroy, and two who have not given permission to use their names. (Breakthrough, Pp. 55-64)
I think it is time and past time for two things to happen: People have to face the fact that we live in a larger reality than we perceive; and there is somebody here–maybe even not alien, but part of us, we just do not know–who has more developed senses and does perceive that larger reality.
If they are people from another planet, incidentally, I think a large part of the difference between us is that they are active in both physical and nonphysical levels of consciousness at the same time. Thus they seem somehow connected with our dead. Also, it seems to me that it’s high time that a large part of our population stop assuming that what we know now is all that can be known. The history of science is marked by a continuing assumption that whatever is known at any given time is all that can be known. That has to end, because there is a reality here that we don’t understand. It’s not paranormal or supernatural. There is no such thing. It is part of nature, it must be, and so are our souls and so are our dead–and our visitors.
It is time to stop denying and start looking straight into the face of what we do not understand. But that must begin by admitting, at least, that it MAY be there!
