UK Ministry of Defence Confirms UFOs as Plasmas: Confirms Theories Presented in Alternate Perceptions
by Dr. Greg Little
A new and unexpected turn of events has occurred in ufology, which promises to deliver disdain from most sides in the controversial topic of UFOs. Several news reports in May 2006 confirmed that the UK's Ministry of Defence (MoD) declassified and released a 460-page, multi-volume report on UFO activity over the UK between 1996 to December 2000. Over 10,000 eyewitness reports were evaluated in the report. Dr. David Clarke and astronomer Gary Anthony of Sheffield Hallam University obtained the report in May via the UK's Freedom of Information Act.
While Clarke and Anthony are still evaluating the report, curiously titled "The Condign Report," they have released a summary of some of the most interesting findings on several websites.
First, the report asserts that no UFO reports represent alien craft. While there is evidence that experimental craft from friendly nations (the US) are the source of some UFO reports, not a single case involves alien technology or alien craft. This will, no doubt, become fodder for extraterrestrial proponents who insist that some UFO sightings have to be alien craft. In addition, the report hints about "exotic technologies" that are being used by the military for research.
Secondly, the Condign Report utilizes the term UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) rather than UFO because the term better describes the findings. In brief, the core of the strangest and most compelling UAP reports involve plasmas floating and moving through the atmosphere. Such phenomena can leave burn marks on the ground and radiation burns on people who are in close proximity, but leave no other traces behind. The report asserted that not a single case of radiation traces or artifacts left behind have ever been found in the UK following UFO cases.
Third, the Condign Report lends credence to the idea that military research has been conducted on the application of plasma technology in both the former Soviet Union and in the US. The technology has, in fact, been studied for use as a battlefield weapon and as a decoy.
Alternate Perceptions' Longstanding Interest In Plasma UFOs
Beginning in 1984 in the book, The Archetype Experience (available as a free pdf file), I began asserting that the mysterious light phenomena associated with UFOs was a natural earth energy. In my 1990 book, People of the Web (available on Amazon.com) and the 1994 book Grand Illusions, I detailed the idea that the core of the UFO phenomena was caused by plasma phenomena generated by natural energies caused by tectonic strain. However, I have carefully outlined a number of research outcomes that point to the plasmas having an intelligence of their own. This fact was essentially proven in a series of experiments by Dr. Harley Rutledge of Southeast Missouri State University and detailed in his 1981 book Project Identification. In 1996, Brent Raynes and I made a 4-cassette tape discussing these and other ideas. The set is available in limited numbers. (If you are interested, send a check for $17.95 to AP, Box 9025, Memphis, TN 38190.)
In the 1990s, while still in print form, Alternate Perceptions published a series of articles on the plasma phenomenon. These included comments from Brent Raynes, articles by Greg Long, and myself. In our Winter 1996 issue, I detailed 10 major characteristics of the plasma phenomenon. These included, 1) That the phenomenon has been observed throughout recorded history, 2) That observers of the phenomenon interpret it consistently within the specific culture, 3) That it involves powerful electromagnetic fields, 4) That experimentation on the electromagnetic fields produced by plasmas shows that they influence brain processes, 5) That the abduction phenomenon is related to changes in specific brain areas that are effected by the electromagnetic fields, 6) That "genuine" UFOs are plasmas, 7) That witnesses to these plasma events who are close to the phenomena have brain chemistry effected, 8) That there are pre-existing genetic differences in people who encounter plasma phenomena—producing different perceptions, 9) That percipients of the plasma phenomena are culturally sensitive—that is predisposed to interpret the phenomena within their beliefs, and 10) That the phenomena has an intelligence of its own. The 1992 discovery of the mineral magnetite in the human brain was one critical piece to the theory.
The Condign Report asserts that the powerful electromagnetic fields produced by the plasmas affect brain chemistry producing what is today known as the abduction scenario. The report goes on to relate that research in neuropsychology has shown that this is the case.
Back in the early 1990s, I obtained over 3000 articles on how electromagnetic fields affect biochemical processes. I gradually became aware that a wide-ranging study of the phenomena was being funded by US agencies in a piecemeal fashion. That is, hundreds of labs located in universities were funded to perform narrow-scope studies investigating aspects of the phenomenon. But none of the labs, apparently, conducted research on the entire phenomenon. In truth, the neorological effects of different frequency strengths, in various frequencies, are now known. In essence, what has now happened is that a new era in UFO research has dawened—assuming that the ire in the extraterrestrial believers will die down. Research in this field is actually far easier to conduct than most people would expect, and if ufologists would put aside their preconceived beliefs for the moment, a lot could be accomplished.
