Aliens and Astral Projection
If a person were to start counting off in seconds, how long do you think it would take to get to a billion? Don’t bother trying. It would take over thirty-one years to do. That example was to familiarize you with what a billion is. Now, the universe is purported to have over 250 billion galaxies, with each galaxy containing hundreds of billion stars. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, has between 100 billion stars on the low end, and 400 billion stars on the high end. With the surge in scientist finding planets around some of these stars, the recent calculation has put the number of inhabitable planets in our Milky Way to be approximately 8.8 billion planets.
Taking this one step further, Frank Drake created a formula to derive a probabilistic number for how many alien species may be in our galaxy that are capable of communicating with us. Using this equation, the current number of possible intelligent alien civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy is almost 5,000. Bruno Martini, in his article, At last, how many alien civilizations are out there? stated, “If those galactic societies were equally spaced, they could be at an average distance of 28,845 light-years apart. That’s too far to have a dialogue with them, even through electromagnetic radiation traveling at the speed of light. So, even with such a potentially high number of advanced civilizations, interstellar communication would still be a major technological challenge. Still, according to SDE, (Statistical Drake Equation), the average distance we should expect to find any alien intelligent life form may be 2,670 light-years from Earth. There is a 75% chance we could find ET between 1,361 and 3,979 light-years away.”

If you have ever seen a Star Trek movie, then you should be aware that Warp Factor One is traveling at the speed of light. Yet, in the series and the movies, there is no talk of the time dilations, which according to Einstein’s Special Relativity Theory, would occur. For instance, if the Starship Enterprise were traveling at half the speed of light, or, 93,141.198 miles per second, the time dilation, or slowing down of time for the crew in comparison to the Earth, would be approximately 1.15. That is to say that from a perspective of a person standing on earth, their clocks would tick 1.15 times faster than the Starship Enterprises. Alternatively, we could say that for every year experienced by the crew zipping along through space at half the speed of light, 1.15 years have passed on Earth. Additionally, if the Starship Enterprise were traveling at .9 times the speed of light, for every year spent at that speed, the Earth would experience 2.3 years. And we haven’t even reach Warp Factor One. So, here we see the implausibility of traveling at speeds that could help us navigate our galaxy. Our closest neighboring star, Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, a double star system, is 4.3 light years away. If humanity were able to build a ship that could travel at half the speed of light, it would take, 8.6 years to get there. Not too bad, but consider that approximately 10 years will have passed on Earth. If we were traveling a .9 the speed of light, then it would take 4.8 years to reach Alpha Centauri, but 11 years would have passed on earth. More than double the Earth years would have passed by the time the ship arrived. This is a problem, not only for Earthlings but also for all sentient species of our galaxy. Interesting enough is the fact that as a ship approaches the speed of light, the time dilation increase to Paramount proportion. Let us say a ship, traveling too close the event horizon of a black hole, becomes captured by its massive gravity and is pulled into its inner core at a speed approaching the speed of light. From earth’s perspective, we would see the ship frozen at the precipice of the spinning vortex, not moving, forever stuck. From the viewpoint of the ship’s crew, we would see centuries pass, and Sol, the Earth’s sun will explode, as it dies a millennium from now. The ship’s time has stopped, or you could say, that is has slowed to such a degree that the universe ages millions and billions of years per millisecond. (One point to note is that Stephen Hawking and Leonard Susskind argued whether information is retained in the universe after a black hole consumes an object. Susskind won, and showed that an ingoing object is consumed immediately, yet an imprint of it former design remains behind as outgoing radiation. This solves the mystery of how an object can seemingly remain trapped within a black hole, from Earth’s perspective, and simultaneously fall into it, from the ship’s perspective).
Therefore, you see, for an intelligent species of alien life to arrive on Earth, they would have to be in command of some sort of alternate mode of travel. (Barring such things as the Alcubierre drive, which creates a warp bubble by compressing the space in front of it and expanding the space behind, or a creation of a stable traversable wormhole, which must utilize a material not yet discovered and only theorized to exist, called Exotic matter. Exotic matter is matter that does not have the properties of ordinary matter in that it may have a negative energy or mass, and is likened to the mysterious dark matter, which physicist believe encompasses ninety percent of the universe. (Remember Yesod, Unus mundus and the Higgs Field from my previous article, The Physics of Magick…Things that make you go hmmm).
Now onto aliens and astral projection, and the many similarities that exist between encounters with aliens and the out-of-body-experience. John Mack, in his book, Abduction: Human Encounters with Aliens, nicely compares and contrasts many esoteric states encountered in both experiences. For instance, during an astral experience, novices of the feat may find that they are lying in bed fully conscious, yet are paralyzed, unable to move a muscle, but have the ability to hear and feel. In psychological terms, this is called sleep paralysis and is believed to be caused by a person waking up during REM sleep, where the body is in a state of Atonia, which is the paralysis of the body during REM sleep to prevent the sleeping person from acting out their dreams. Fair enough. Other causes implicated in sleep paralysis are sleep apnea and sleep deprivation. However, I believe that sleep paralysis is indicative of the novice astral journeyer having the preliminary stages of soul separation. Unconscious forces are at work with the sleeping person, and push the individual to the brink of an experience that surpasses all. As a long time sufferer of sleep paralysis, I discovered that it was the catalysis for the out-of-body-experience. If you read any articles or books on alien abduction or encounters, paralysis is a major part. Abductees often report lying in bed, unable to move and seeing either the Greys or taller, more dominant beings.
Further comparisons entail passing through solid objects. How often have abductees stated that they floated upwards while they were lying in bed and passed through the ceiling? Probably most. What is happening is that these extraterrestrial beings are present in the astral world and coax the abductee into having an out-of-body-experience. And it is that body, the astral body, that is taken for study. Some abductees reported how the aliens entered their bedroom by either appearing suddenly, or walking through the walls and then leaving the same way. Unless these aliens are in control of some sort of technology that contradicts known physics, they are here in the astral.
Whitney Strieber, in his book Communion, writes about his encounters with the Greys, who visited him in his home on many nights. Strieber’s account of his many interactions with the visitors has detailed astral phenomenon such as going through walls, rising up in his bed, and even playing a game of astral tag, where the alien entities and other abductees project spheres of energy at each other while in their astral bodies. Additionally, in his book, The Communion Letters, several people speak of being paralyzed during their precursor abduction experience and detail the many astral phenomena previously mentioned.
The following paragraph is a personal account of a visitation as told to me from a dear and trusted friend.
It happened many years ago, and a friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, told me about an alien encounter he experienced while sleeping in his NYC apartment next to his wife. Sometime during the night, as he was sleeping on his right side, he felt three gentle pokes on his left calf. Thinking it was his wife foot prodding him, he ignored it. Three more taps on his calf ensued, this time with a little more fervor. Annoyed now, he attempted to push his wife legs away from him with his legs but found she was curled up on the edge of her side of the bed, legs and feet nowhere near his. Puzzled, he sat up. There in front of him where what he described as five tall beings, similar in appearance to the Greys, but standing six-feet tall. Light pale skin, wearing shimmering, one-piece silver outfits, passive, non-threatening, they brought with them five to seven other beings, whom my friend stated were part of him. (My friend asked me to withhold the details of the appearance of these related entities, only because he has said that in his search for similar encounters and descriptions, he has found nothing even vaguely similar. What he experienced does not fit into other testimonies of abductees claiming that they met their hybrid children. My friend wishes to keep the details of his hybrid spawn concealed until he or I can find similar comparisons).
After spending several moments with the hybrids, my friend felt a presence on his left side, just over his shoulder. When he turned, an alien face peered at him only inches from his. Its lips spread wide, the corners of its mouth pulled taught, high, wrapping around its head. Rows and rows of needle-like teeth gleamed in the darkness. My friend, paralyzed with fear, his mouth hanging open, emitted a soft moan. Then, instantaneously, the beings were gone, leaving him sitting in his bed, alone.
As I questioned my friend to elaborate on specific details, he stated that he could easily recall the face of the creature that invaded his personal space, exposing its teeth. My friend indicated that he does not know if the creature was grinning or smiling in a passive way, or if the expression was one of malice. What would an alien think of our broad smile, baring our teeth in an expression of joy, or hearty laughter, our mouth wide and weird sounds being emitted?
Below is a clay sculpture that my friend created of the creature as it exposed its teeth, inches from his face.
My anonymous friend created the above sculpture. It depicts the creature that appeared in his bedroom inches from his face. Whether the being is smiling or snarling has yet to be determined, and the image remains vivid in his mind’s eye.
To this day, my friend has experienced something tapping his calf in the middle of the night. The taps are always in sets of threes, and he is still hesitant to open his eyes again for fear of seeing the ambivalent creature again. However, my friend stated that he did gather the courage to do so, but has yet to elaborate further details to me. He reiterates that he felt no malice in the encounter, but believes the aliens were there to share with him his hybrid offspring. Additionally, my friend has had many astral experiences and is confident that this encounter took place while he was out-of-his-body, yet still within his bedroom. It was his astral body that sat up, while his sleeping body lay undisturbed. If not for his understanding of the astral plain, he would have sworn the encounter was physical in nature. This could account for the many people claiming to be physically abducted from the home. They are not experienced enough with astral travel to recognize the difference.
Whether these being are from another planet, the future, another dimension, or even possibly from deep within the subconscious, I do not know. But what I believe is that these beings are contacting us on the astral plain, complete with astral apparatus for carrying out their plans. Remember, whatever is changed on the astral plain, appears on the physical plain. As for the hybrids, my friend’s detail of their appearance does not fit in with the traditional descriptions of hybrid beings, of beautiful human looking children with big eyes. This almost makes me believe his testimony more valid than others. There is no romance in it, no feeling of being special or chosen. He told me his story as mere fact, more afraid of further night encounters than anything else and highly perplexed at its meaning. I question many of the people claiming to be abductees, who state that they provided their DNA for future alien hybrids. Really? I would believe Mozart, Einstein or Da Vinci, or someone profoundly capable in the esoteric arts if they stated to me that the aliens wanted their DNA. But for most people with the claim, I don’t know, perhaps. As for my friend, why did the aliens choose him? Probably because he is profoundly efficient in the esoteric arts and astral projection and has chosen a life (or the life has been selected for him), that expedites the evolution of his soul.
The author has come to conclude that the physical appearance of aliens is highly unlikely given the limitation of the physical universe and that it is much more feasible for an advanced civilization to utilize a dimension where faster than light travel is possible. Do I believe the construction of a material that is of both dimensions, i.e. physical and astral? Possibly. Humanity has recently discovered the Higgs Particle, or God particle, as most probably know it. Will Mankind one day be able to manipulate a particle that is alleged to produce physical mass from the infinite void of pure potential? I think, yes. Then again, I don’t see the glass as half empty or even half full. I see it as the collapse of the wave function after my consciousness has observed it.
