The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers
BY CHARLOTTE BLODGET
In the introduction to this book I wish to begin by stating that while none can help but find the contents deeply fascinating, I am fully aware that incredulity in varying degrees is bound to follow. Some will accept George Adamski’s claims that his experiences inside the space slips were real and factual. Many, feeling the sincerity with which he tells his story, will brand him as an honest but self-deluded man and toss his adventures into the category of the mental or psychic. Still others, trained to reject everything not yet proven in the familiar three dimensions, will enjoy writing it all off as a clever hoax.
Although I myself have seen the space ships on several occasions, both here in the Bahamas where I live and at Palomar during the several weeks I stayed there this past summer, I have never been inside one. Nor, to my knowledge, have I ever met a space man. I have, however, met George Adamski. To know him leads to at least one certainty. He is a man of unquestionable integrity.
After reading Flying Saucers Have Landed, and since in any case I was headed for California to spend the summer with members of my family, I wrote to Mr. Adamski describing my sightings here and asked if I might call on him. A cordial invitation to do so was the result.
I do not hesitate to state that I made my first visit to Palomar Terraces with heavily crossed fingers. I was quite prepared for anything from a brilliant lunatic to a harmlessly self-deluded man; or perhaps one more California cult conveniently and profitably hung on the horns of the current Saucer interest. What I found was a man far removed from axiy of these and rather difficult to describe.
My first reaction was that a minor crime had been committed in allowing so inadequate and misleading a photograph to be used on the jacket of his book. (Flying Saucers Have Landed) Not only is Adamski a handsome man in a very individual way, but here was a fine face with integrity clearly written on it. It is also, as I discovered during my weeks there, a face from which an expression of kindness and patience never departs. This does not mean that Adamski has evolved beyond the point where the little irritants which raise the blood pressure of lesser beings have entirely ceased to prick him. Far from it! For incidents such as a recalcitrant pipe when functioning as an amateur plumber, or inability to locate a pet hammer, he has a vocabulary as normal as any man’s. But his irritation seldom extends to another fellow being. All who find their way to his door, be they bores, pests or bellicose challengers, meet with the same patient courtesy as the intelligent, the charming or the important in a worldly sense. He has, in short, true understanding and compassion. These attributes, coupled with an ever-ready sense of humor, make him entirely approachable in the broadest sense of the word. Nor does he demand that everyone agree with all that he believes or states. His is the true humility which precludes arrogance.
The fact that Adamski possesses more wisdom than formal education is, in his case, an asset, leaving him free of the fetters which too often shackle the academic mind. At the same time, he is amazingly well informed on most subjects, including world events and the causes that lie behind them. Perhaps it is partly owing to this that he is something of a prophet. Apart from an almost total absence of any material acquisitiveness which sometimes leads others to take advantage of him, Adamski emerges as an unusually well balanced man.
I am inclined to believe that the remarkable brand of patience manifested by Adamski must have played a large part in his selection as one of their important emissaries on Earth by our brothers from other planets. Adamski’s is not the easy patience content to wait and dream beside a fire or under a shade tree, but patience backed by action. For instance, once he had become convinced of the extra-terrestrial nature of the strange objects he had seen in the skies, he set about getting photographic evidence of their reality. That this was a project of major proportions should be obvious.
Hazards of weather and the length of time involved did not deter Adamski. Actually, five years elapsed (1948 through 1952) before, out of hundreds of attempts, he had one or more successful photographs of each different type of space ship which he had observed. Then only did he consider the initial stage of his Saucer research complete. Since then photographs taken in many parts of the world have been made public, showing the same type ships in corroboration of the Adamski photographs.
Leonard G. Cramp, M.S.I.A., made comparative orthographic drawings of Adamski’s Venusian Scout and the craft photographed by thirteen-year-old Stephen Darbishire in England (the “Coniston Saucer”) and proved the two identical in structure and measurement. These drawings appear in Cramp’s book Space, Gravity and the Flying Saucer (recommended reading for scientists and the technically minded).*
*Published in 1954 in the U.S.A by the British Book Centre.
Before I left Palomar Terraces I suggested that for the benefit of those who inevitably would be asking for “concrete evidence” it might be well to include in this book some kind of witness substantiation on the part of persons who need not remain currently silent because of security or personal considerations; or perhaps photographs of the interior of a space ship, or of some article made on another planet. Although I understood Adam-ski’s explanation as to why he felt such evidence would accomplish little, I was still interested in getting reactions to the lack of it from the widely assorted friends and acquaintances whom I would be seeing. These included prominent scientists, journalists, professors of various subjects and sophisticated laymen.
I found a general interest in Saucers keener than I had anticipated. Moreover, not only was there surprisingly little skepticism in regard to the fact of these strange craft in our skies, but a readiness to believe them of interplanetary origin. What few could swallow was that George Adamski had seen and talked with our neighbors from other planets and been taken up in their ships.
Lack of any extensive knowledge of outer space was readily admitted. The concept of unnavigable distance between planets is no longer held by many of our scientists, nor does the old yardstick of light-years stand as the basis on which the time element must be computed. The currents of space (for lack of a better term) are admittedly still mysteries to be explored. The conquest of gravity still lies in the future.
Since science has undeniably made gigantic strides within our lifetime, it is sometimes easy to forget that we are as yet infants in our understanding of the vast Universe of which we are so small a part. We overlook the continual pattern throughout the history of mankind that dictates the enforced abandonment or modification of yesterday’s suppositions and conclusions in the light of next day’s further discoveries. The more mature the mind of man becomes, the more fully he realizes that the endless miracles of an infinite creation cannot be fully measured by any yardstick he will ever devise. This is a thrilling, not a frightening or discouraging realization. Only the immature mind quickly rejects as impossible or alarming all that which lies outside his own small physical experience or beyond the understanding of his limited imagination.
As a student of history and human nature, Adamski is fully aware that in recounting experiences so far removed from ordinary events on this troubled planet he is laying himself wide open to attack from predictable sources. And although I realize that any aspersions which may be cast upon his sanity or veracity have no power to disturb him personally, I also know what importance he attaches to spreading the truth about the space ships and their friendly mission to the divided peoples of our Earth. Because of this, and since I did encounter the demands for “concrete evidence” to substantiate Adamski’s claims, I wrote to ask again if he could agree that something along that line might be incorporated in this book. I feel that his reply to me justifies his point of view far more tellingly than I or anyone else could set it forth. Therefore, I asked and received his permission to quote from his letter as follows:
Star Route, Valley Center, California
I have read your letter with a great amount of interest, and while all the different phases seem to make sense on the one hand, on the other they do not. I don’t wish to criticize anyone, but most people who have been trained in one particular field, regardless of who they may be or what position they bold, are often dominated by a too faithful adherence to the traditional and conventional grooves.
As I have told you, I do have witnesses to one of my journeys in a space craft. Both are scientists who hold high positions. Once they are able to make a statement the picture will change overnight. However, the way things are nowadays with everything classified as security, for the time being they must remain in the shadow. When they believe that they can release the substantiation they have without jeopardizing either the national defense or themselves, they have said that they will do so through the press. How soon that will be, your guess is as good as mine. But because they were with me at the request of the Brothers, some things are moving in behalf of both the Brothers and the general public that otherwise could not have been started. And much as we would like to, we cannot speak of these things yet because good intentions can have bad reactions. Anything acted upon prematurely can ruin the best beginnings.
Besides, remember that there is also another side to this matter of evidence, of which you are fully informed and understand the reason why we must wait in patience for the fulfillment of our hopes. Just the other day I received a letter indicating that such possibilities are showing and it seems that eventually support will come from that source, which would be a blessing to the world. So again I have to wait with faith, letting time be the judge.
I can see your point about personal witnesses who, free from security or personal reasons, would be at liberty to speak out and support me. But just as skeptics would question my own affidavit, would they not question that of anyone else? This was proven in regard to the sworn testimony of witnesses present at the meeting described in Flying Saucers Have Landed. When a critic is a critic, one can bring the Almighty before him and still he will question. Even the average man is quick to doubt anything that is new to him.
When it comes to concrete articles made on another planet which I might produce, would they really serve? Quite apart from the impossibility of showing them to all readers of the book, we are up against the same old story in regard to photographs of such things. Can you not anticipate such comments as “Adamski concocted this or that and photographed it,”—or “What’s so different about this goblet, or that piece of material?” And indeed, judging from anything I personally saw aboard the space craft, there is actually no more superficial difference between a Venusian goblet and ours than between the thousand and one widely varying types manufactured here on Earth!
Look what they have said about the space craft photos which show objects entirely different from any made on Earth—and which have been photographed by many people in different parts of the world! So, no matter how you look at it, unless the person himself has that something necessary to recognize truth, it would make no difference what was presented as evidence, he still would want concrete proof to suit his own understanding, ignoring all the other minds in the world.
It is almost like this: he who has the depth of life within his being needs none of these, but he who has not, as Jesus said, “shall ask for signs, but no signs shall be given,” for if they were, the doubters would not understand them. His words are just as true today.
He who has the truth asks not for proof, for his inner feeling recognizes that truth which is in itself proof. And we have an outstanding corroboration of this in respect to Flying Saucers Have Landed. As you know, I am nobody, living by preference in the mountains rather than in a city where I could meet “all the right people.” In that book was plenty of material for the psychologists, psychoanalysts and professional critics to work on—and they did! Yet the book has gone round the world. You read many of the letters we received and saw that, while a few were of a skeptical and critical nature, most of them were praising. You noted how many people told of their own personal experiences of which, because they too could present no “concrete proof,” they feared to speak; or, had tried to tell to friends and relatives—with unhappy results!
Was it not the so-called professed authorities in times gone by, as they are today, who criticized and disparaged everything proposed for the betterment of man? The kind of proof demanded was premature and could not in wisdom be given. But time and patience finally vindicated those who brought forth the ideas. Humanity is that much better off today because of them—not because of the skeptics! It is no different today. But let me assure you of one thing. The Brothers will not fail us if we follow their guidance, any more than they failed us in Flying Saucers Have Landed. While we humans did very little in spreading it that far, someone else must have assisted greatly. Therefore, let us follow through without too many changes in the procedure which started with the first book. I am sure that we shall not be wrong. Let the critics ask! Their very opposition may serve as a stimulant for their own curiosity, causing them to enter into a deeper research or analysis. The truth will always prevail in spite of personal or limited opinions.
In regard to analysis of the little piece of metal slag to which I refer in the book and which you held in your hand, I have hesitated because of a former experience. Some years ago I bad a chemical analysis made of a piece of metal alloy which I knew for a fact did not stem from this planet. My first thought was an analysis and I turned it over to a scientist to have done. When I first telephoned to ask the result, this man sounded very excited. But when I saw him later in his laboratory, he had drawn himself under control (or someone else had) and tried to brush the whole thing off lightly.
When he said that it was nothing that could not be picked up in any old scrapyard, naturally I persisted in demanding an explicit statement of his findings. He then admitted that there were “slight differences” in composition from any usual alloy, but said that could have happened by a variation in heating or some “slight accident” which had gone unnoticed at the time, thereby making duplication of the alloy improbable.
That experience taught me a lesson and I have no desire to risk losing the little piece of metal slag you saw, and which I know to be “not of this Earth” by turning it over to anyone until I can be certain that the truth is sincerely sought and will be released.
I recognize that my wisdom is very little in comparison to that of the Brothers. Therefore, I leave all decisions to them, as you would. I have reason to believe that they are endeavoring to make contacts in other parts of the world so that no one, even the most skeptical, could accuse me of perhaps deluding a witness companion, or even buying him off to support my statements, should I try to introduce one whose name carried no weight in the world.
Perhaps the Brothers from other planets are waiting until the inner being of men on Earth stirs ever so slightly toward a wakening stage, with desire for a better living amongst his fellowmen. Perhaps faith is of paramount importance; not blind faith, but that knowing faith which comes only from within and cannot be swerved from what it knows to be true. The first book did contribute to such an awakening. The purpose of this book is to stimulate this activity into even greater growth and understanding.
No scientific support of any kind was present for the events described in the first book. But events that have taken place since publication, and coming from different parts of the world, have proven greater support than anything that I could have produced on publication date. This has happened in spite of opposing forces who, for whatever reasons, do not wish the truth to come out. It will be the same with this book. I have been well protected against many things, as well as guided. So far, the Brothers have never let me down. So if we wait patiently and in quiet confidence, things will come out as they should. There will be more abundant proof throughout the world than I, as one man, could ever be given or, in turn, give out.
