Subject: [exopolitics] Explanation for Drone UFO Sightings in
Aloha, here is a significant breaking story. A whistleblower has
stepped forward to give information on the spate of Drone sightings
in California that appear to be UFOs. The whistleblower gives a
detailed personal account of his work on reverse engineering
extraterrestrial technology in a highly classified commercial
military joint venture.
He believes that drones are related to
extraterrestrial technology he worked on, especially the development
of 'cloaking' or invisibility technology. His information on
advanced computing applications and communications is very accurate
and he provides documents to substantiate his claims. He gives an
insight into some of the ways the military works with the commercial
sector as described by
Philip Corso in the Day After Roswell to
reverse engineer extraterrestrial technology.

Explanation of the Recent "Strange Craft" Sightings
Isaac's 'CARET' image compared with Chad's drone photo
Greetings Coast to Coast AM,
I have information that can explain a great deal of what is going on
in the photos provided by Chad, Rajman, the Lake Tahoe witness, as
well as the photos taken by Jenna and Ty in Big Basin, CA…
I'm going by the alias "Isaac" while I release this information. I'm
an electrical engineer and computer scientist and used to work in a
program called "CARET" that was concerned with research and
development based on extra-terrestrial technology. Many key elements
of the technology I worked with during my time with CARET are
clearly visible in these crafts. This work was done in the 80's in
Palo Alto, CA, so it's no surprise to me that these sightings are
taking place within such proximity to that area.
Attached to this email you will find numerous scans of photographs
and documents from my CARET days that pertain to what I'm going to
tell you, and would like to share with your audience. In addition, I
have put up a small website that has very high resolution copies of
all of these scans, as well as a lengthy letter that explains a lot
about me, the CARET program, and these sightings. I've been
listening to your show since 2002 and would like to work with you to
get this information out there. Please read the text at the website
for the rest of the details, as I am taking a fairly significant
personal risk and would like to make sure it's worth it:
All I ask in sharing this information is that it's kept together.
There are 4 photos and a total of 15 pages of scanned documents. If
you'd like to resize them for your website, that is fine... I want
people to have easy access to this information IN FULL. I feel this
is reasonable and it is all I ask. I am NOT trying to sell anything
and the only reason I created this very simple website is to ensure
all the information is presented correctly and in one place.
with the CARET Program and Extra-terrestrial Technology
This letter is part of a package I've assembled for Coast to Coast
AM to distribute to its audience. It is a companion to numerous
document and photo scans and should not be separated from them.
You can call me Isaac, an alias I've chosen as
a simple measure of protection while I release what would be called
tremendously sensitive information even by today's standards.
“Sensitive” is not necessarily synonymous with “dangerous”, though,
which is why my conscience is clear as I offer this material up for
the public. My government has its reasons for its continual secrecy,
and I sympathize with many of them, but the truth is that I'm
getting old and I'm not interested in meeting my maker one day with
any more baggage than necessary! Furthermore, I put a little more
faith in humanity than my former bosses do, and I think that a
release of at least some of this info could help a lot more than it
could hurt, especially in today's world.
I should be clear before I begin, as a final note: I am not
interested in making myself vulnerable to the consequences of
betraying the trust of my superiors and will not divulge any
personal information that could determine my identity. However my
intent is not to deceive, so information that I think is too risky
to share will be simply left out rather than obfuscated in some way
(aside from my alias, which I freely admit is not my real name).
I would estimate that with the
information contained in this letter, I could be narrowed down to
one of maybe 30-50 people at best, so I feel reasonably secure.
Some Explanation for the Recent
For many years I've occasionally
considered the release of at least some of the material I possess,
but the recent wave of photos and sightings has prompted me to cut
to the chase and do so now.
I should first be clear that I'm not directly familiar with any of
the crafts seen in the photos in their entirety. I've never seen
them in a hangar or worked on them myself or seen aliens zipping
around in them. However, I have worked with and seen many of the
parts visible in these crafts, some of which can be seen in the
Q3-85 Inventory Review scan found at the top of this page. More
importantly though, I'm very familiar with the “language” on their
undersides seen clearly in photos by Chad and Rajman, and in another
form in the Big Basin photos.
One question I can answer for sure is why they're suddenly here.
These crafts have probably existed in their current form for
decades, and I can say for sure that the technology behind them has
existed for decades before that. The “language”, in fact, (I'll
explain shortly why I keep putting that in quotes) was the subject
of my work in years past. I'll cover that as well.
The reason they're suddenly visible, however, is another matter
entirely. These crafts, assuming they're anything like the hardware
I worked with in the 80's (assuming they're better, in fact), are
equipped with technology that enables invisibility. That ability can
be controlled both on board the craft, and remotely. However, what's
important in this case is that this invisibility can also be
disrupted by other technology. Think of it like radar jamming. I
would bet my life savings (since I know this has happened before)
that these craft are becoming visible and then returning to
invisibility arbitrarily, probably unintentionally, and undoubtedly
for only short periods, due to the activity of a kind of disrupting
technology being set off elsewhere, but nearby.
I'm especially sure of this in the case
of the Big Basin sightings, were the witnesses themselves reported
seeing the craft just appear and disappear. This is especially
likely because of the way the witness described one of the
appearances being only a momentary flicker, which is consistent with
the unintentional, intermittent triggering of such a device.
It's no surprise that these sightings are all taking place in
California, and especially the Saratoga/South Bay area. Not far from
Saratoga is Mountain View/Sunnyvale, home to Moffett Field and the
NASA Ames Research center. Again, I'd be willing to bet just
about anything that the device capable of hijacking the cloaking of
these nearby craft was inadvertently triggered, probably during some
kind of experiment, at the exact moment they were being seen. Miles
away, in Big Basin, the witnesses were in the right place at the
right time and saw the results of this disruption with their own
God knows what else was suddenly
appearing in the skies at that moment, and who else may have seen
it. I've had some direct contact with this device, or at least a
device capable of the same thing, and this kind of mistake is not
unprecedented. I am personally aware of at least one other incident
in which this kind of technology was accidentally set off, resulting
in the sudden visibility of normally invisible things. The only
difference is that these days, cameras are a lot more common!
The technology itself isn't ours, or at least it wasn't in the 80's.
Much like the technology in these crafts themselves, the device
capable of remotely hijacking a vehicle's clacking comes from a
non-human source too. Why we were given this technology has never
been clear to me, but it's responsible for a lot. Our having access
to this kind of device, along with our occasionally haphazard
experimentation on them, has lead to everything from cloaking
malfunctions like this to full-blown crashes. I can assure you that
most (and in my opinion all) incidents of UFO crashes or that kind
of thing had more to do with our meddling with extremely powerful
technology at an inopportune time than it did mechanical failure on
Trust me, those things don't fail unless
something even more powerful than them makes them fail
(intentionally or not). Think of it like a stray bullet. You can be
hit by one at any time, without warning, and even the shooter didn't
intent to hit you. I can assure you heads are rolling over this as
well. If anyone notices a brilliant but sloppy physicist patrolling
the streets of Baghdad in the next couple weeks, I'd be willing to
guess how he got there. (I kid, of course, as I certainly hope that
hasn't actually happened in this case)
I'd now like to explain how it is that I know this.
The CARET Program
My story begins the same as it did for many of my co workers, with
graduate and post-graduate work at university in electrical
engineering. And I had always been interested in computer science,
which was a very new field at the time, and my interest piqued with
my first exposure to a Tixo during grad school. In the years
following school I took a scenic route through the tech industry and
worked for the kinds of companies you would expect, until I was
offered a job at the Department of Defense and things took a very
My time at the DoD was mostly uneventful but I was there for quite a
while. I apparently proved myself to be reasonably intelligent and
loyal. By 1984 these qualities along with my technical background
made me a likely candidate for a new program they were recruiting
for called “CARET”.
Before I explain what CARET was I should back up a little. By 1984,
Silicon Valley had been a juggernaut of technology for decades. In
the less than 40 years since the appearance of Shockley’s transistor
this part of the world had already produced a multi billion dollar
computer industry and made technological strides that were
unprecedented in other fields, from hypertext and online
collaboration in '68 to the Alto in '73.
Private industry in Silicon Valley was responsible for some of the
most incredible technological leaps in history and this fact did not
go unnoticed by the US government and military. I don’t claim to
have any special knowledge about Roswell or any of the other alleged
early UFO events, but I do know that whatever the exact origin, the
military was hard at work trying to understand and use the
extra-terrestrial artifacts it had in its possession. While there
had been a great deal of progress overall, things were not moving as
quickly as some would have liked.
So, in 1984, the CARET program was
created with the aim of harnessing the abilities of private industry
in silicon valley and applying it to the ongoing task of
understanding extra-terrestrial technology.
One of the best examples of the power of the tech sector was
Xerox PARC, a research center in Palo Alto, CA. XPARC was
responsible for some of the major milestones in the history of
computing. While I never had the privilege of working there myself I
did know many of the people who did and I can say that they were
among the brightest engineers I ever knew.
XPARC served as one of the models for the CARET program’s first
incarnation, a facility called the Palo Alto CARET Laboratory
(PACL, lovingly pronounced “packle” during my time there).
This was where I worked, along with numerous other civilians, under
the auspices of military brass who were eager to find out how the
tech sector made so much progress so quickly.
My time at the DoD was a major factor
behind why I was chosen, and in fact about 30+ others who were hired
around the same time had also been at the Department about as long,
but this was not the case for everyone. A couple of my co-workers
were plucked right from places like IBM and, at least two of them
came from XPARC itself. My DoD experience did make me more eligible
for positions of management, however, which is how I have so much of
this material in my possession to begin with.
So in other words, civilians like myself who had at --at most-- some
decent experience working for the DoD but no actual military
training or involvement, were suddenly finding ourselves in the same
room as highly classified extra-terrestrial technology. Of course
they spent about 2 months briefing us all before we saw or did
anything, and did their best to convince us that if we ever leaked a
single detail about what we were being told, they’d do everything
short of digging up our ancestors and putting a few slugs in them
too just for good measure.
It seemed like there was an armed guard
in every corner of every room. I’d worked under some pretty hefty
NDAs in my time but this was so far out of my depth I didn’t think I
was going to last 2 weeks in an environment like that. But amazingly
things got off to a good start. They wanted us, plain and simple,
and our industry had shown itself to be so good at what it did that
they were just about ready to give us carte blanche.
Of course, nothing with the military is ever that simple, and as is
often the case they wanted to have their cake and eat it too. What I
mean by this is that despite their interest in picking our brains
and learning whatever they could from our way of doing things, they
still wanted to do it their way often enough to frustrate us.
At this point I'm going to gloss over the emotional side of this
experience, because this letter isn't intended to be a memoir, but I
will say that there's almost no way to describe the impact this kind
of revelation has on your mind. There are very few moments in life
in which your entire world view is turned forever upside down, but
this was one of them. I still remember that turning point during the
briefing when I realized what he'd just told us, and that I hadn't
heard him wrong, and that it wasn't some kind of joke.
In retrospect the whole thing feels like
it was in slow motion, from that slight pause he took just before
the term “extra-terrestrial” came out for the first time, to the way
the room itself seemed to go off kilter as we collectively tried to
grasp what was being said. My reflex kept jumping back and forth
between trying to look at the speaker, to understand him better, and
looking at everyone else around me, to make sure I wasn't the only
one that was hearing this. At the risk of sounding melodramatic,
it's a lot like a child learning his parents are divorcing. I never
experienced that myself, but a very close friend of mine did when
were boys, and he confided in me a great deal about what the
experience felt like.
A lot of what he said would aptly
describe what I was feeling in that room. Here was a trusted
authority figure telling you something that you just don't feel
ready for, and putting a burden on your mind that you don't
necessarily want to carry. The moment that first word comes out, all
you can think about it is what it was like only seconds ago, and
knowing that life is never going to be as simple as it was then.
After all that time at the DoD, I thought I at least had some idea
of what was going on in the world, but I'd never heard so much as a
peep about this. Maybe one day I'll write more on this aspect,
because it's the kind of thing I really would like to get off my
chest, but for now I'll digress.
Unlike traditional research in this area, we weren’t working on new
toys for the air force. For numerous reasons, the CARET people
decided to aim its efforts at commercial applications rather than
military ones. They basically wanted us to turn these artifacts into
something they could patent and sell. One of CARET’s most appealing
promises was the revenue generated by these product-ready
technologies, which could be funneled right back into
projects. Working with a commercial application in mind was also yet
another way to keep us in a familiar mind state. Developing
technology for the military is very different than doing so for the
commercial sector, and not having to worry about the difference was
another way that CARET was very much like private industry.
CARET shined in the way it let us work the way we were used to
working. They wanted to recreate as much of the environment we were
used to as they could without compromising issues like security.
That meant we got free reign to set up our own workflow, internal
management structure, style manuals, documentation, and the like.
They wanted this to look and feel like private industry, not the
military. They knew that was how to get the best work out of us, and
they were right.
But things didn’t go as smoothly when it came to matters like access
to classified information. They were exposing what is probably their
single biggest secret to a group of people who had never even been
through basic training and it was obvious that the gravity of this
decision was never far from their minds. We started the program with
a small set of extra-terrestrial artifacts along with fairly
elaborate briefings on each as well as access to a modest amount of
what research had already been completed. It wasn’t long before we
realized we needed more though, and getting them to provide even the
smallest amount of new material was like pulling teeth. CARET
stood for “Commercial Applications Research for Extra-terrestrial
Technology”, but we often joked that it should have stood for “Civilians
Are Rarely Ever Trusted.”
PACL was located in Palo Alto, but unlike XPARC, it
wasn’t at the end of a long road in the middle of a big complex
surrounded by rolling hills and trees. PACL was hidden in an office
complex owned entirely by the military but made to look like an
unassuming tech company. From the street, all you could see was what
appeared to be a normal parking lot with a gate and a guard booth,
and a 1-story building inside with a fictitious name and logo. What
wasn’t visible from the street was that behind the very first set of
doors was enough armed guards to invade Poland, and 5 additional
underground stories. They wanted to be as close as possible to the
kinds of people they were looking to hire and be able to bring them
in with a minimum of fuss.
Inside, we had everything we needed. State of the art hardware and a
staff of over 200 computer scientists, electrical engineers,
mechanical engineers, physicists and mathematicians. Most of us were
civilians, as I’ve said, but some were military, and a few of them
had been working on this technology already. Of course, you were
never far from the barrel of a machine gun, even inside the labs
themselves (something many of us never got used to), and bi-weekly
tours were made by military brass to ensure that not a single detail
was out of line. Most of us underwent extensive searches on our way
into and out of the building. There it was, probably the biggest
secret in the world, in a bunch of parts spread out on laboratory
tables in the middle of Palo Alto so you can imagine their concern.
One downside to CARET was that it wasn't as well-connected as
other operations undoubtedly were. I never got to see any actual
extra-terrestrials (not even photos), and in fact never even saw one
of their compete vehicles. 99% of what I saw was related to the work
at hand, all of which was conducted within a very narrow context on
individual artifacts only. The remaining 1% came from people I met
through the program, many of which working more closely with “the
good stuff” or had in the past.
In fact, what was especially amusing about the whole affair was the
way that our military management almost tried to act as if the
technology we were essentially reverse engineering wasn't
extra-terrestrial at all. Aside from the word “extra-terrestrial”
itself, we rarely heard any other terms like “alien” or “UFO” or
“outer space” or anything. Those aspects were only mentioned briefly
when absolutely necessary to explain something. In many cases it was
necessary to differentiate between the different races and their
respective technology, and they didn't even use the word “races”.
They were referred to simply as
A lot of the technology we worked on was what you would expect,
namely antigravity. Most of the researchers on the staff with
backgrounds in propulsion and rocketry were military men, but the
technology we were dealing with was so out of this world that it
didn’t really matter all that much what your background was because
none of it applied. All we could hope to do was use the vocabulary
of our respective fields as a way to model the extremely bizarre new
concepts we were very slowly beginning to understand as best we
could. A rocket engineer doesn’t usually rub elbows much with a
computer scientist, but inside PACL, we were all equally
mystified and were ready to entertain any and all ideas.
The physicists made the most headway initially because out of all of
our skills, theirs overlapped the most with the concepts behind this
technology (although that isn’t saying much!) Once they got the ball
rolling though, we began to find that many of the concepts found in
computer science were applicable as well, albeit in very vague ways.
While I didn’t do a lot of work with the antigravity hardware
myself, I was occasionally involved in the assessment of how that
technology was meant to interface with its user.
The antigravity was amazing, of course, as were the advances we were
making with materials engineering and so on. But what interested me
most then, and still amazes me most to this day, was something
completely unrelated. In fact, it was this technology that
immediately jumped out at me when I saw the Chad and Rajman photos,
and even more so in the Big Basin photos.
I put the word Language in quotes because calling what I am about to
describe a “language” is a misnomer, although it is an easy mistake
Their hardware wasn’t operated in quite the same way as ours. In our
technology, even today, we have a combination of hardware and
software running almost everything on the planet. Software is more
abstract than hardware, but ultimately it needs hardware to run it.
In other words, there’s no way to write a computer program on a
piece of paper, set that piece of paper on a table or something, and
expect it to actually do something. The most powerful code in the
world still doesn’t actually do anything until a piece of hardware
interprets it and translates its commands into actions.
But their technology is different. It really did operate like the
magical piece of paper sitting on a table, in a manner of speaking.
They had something akin to a language, that could quite literally
execute itself, at least in the presence of a very specific type of
field. The language, a term I am still using very loosely, is a
system of symbols (which does admittedly very much resemble a
written language) along with geometric forms and patterns that fit
together to form diagrams that are themselves functional. Once they
are drawn, so to speak, on a suitable surface made of a suitable
material and in the presence of a certain type of field, they
immediately begin performing the desired tasks.
It really did seem
like magic to us, even after we began to understand the principles
I worked with these symbols more than anything during my time at
PACL, and recognized them the moment I saw them in the photos.
They appear in a very simple form on Chad’s craft, but appear in the
more complex diagram form on the underside of the Big Basin craft as
well. Both are unmistakable, even at the small size of the Big Basin
photos. An example of a diagram in the style of the Big Basin craft
is included with this in a series of scanned pages from the [mis-titled]
"Linguistic Analysis Primer". We needed a copy of that diagram to be
utterly precise, and it took about a month for a team of six to copy
that diagram into our drafting program!
Explaining everything I learned about this technology would fill up
several volumes, but I will do my best to explain at least some of
the concepts as long as I am taking the time to write all this down.
First of all, you wouldn't open up their hardware to find a CPU
here, and a data bus there, and some kind of memory over there.
Their hardware appeared to be perfectly solid and consistent in
terms of material from one side to the other. Like a rock or a hunk
of metal. But upon [much] closer inspection, we began to learn that
it was actually one big holographic computational substrate - each
"computational element" (essentially individual particles) can
function independently, but are designed to function together in
tremendously large clusters. I say its holographic because you can
divide it up into the smallest chunks you want and still find a
scaled-down but complete representation of the whole system.
They produce a nonlinear computational
output when grouped. So 4 elements working together is actually more
than 4 times more powerful than 1. Most of the internal "matter" in
their crafts (usually everything but the outermost housing) is
actually this substrate and can contribute to computation at any
time and in any state. The shape of these "chunks" of substrate also
had a profound effect on its functionality, and often served as a
"shortcut" to achieve a goal that might otherwise be more complex.
So back to the language.
The language is actually a "functional
blueprint". The forms of the shapes, symbols and arrangements
thereof is itself functional. What makes it all especially difficult
to grasp is that every element of each "diagram" is dependant on and
related to every other element, which means no single detail can be
created, removed or modified independently. Humans like written
language because each element of the language can be understood on
its own, and from this, complex expressions can be built. However,
their "language" is entirely context-sensitive, which means that a
given symbol could mean as little as a 1-bit flag in one context,
or, quite literally, contain the entire human genome or a galaxy
star map in another.
The ability for a single, small symbol
to contain, not just represent, tremendous amounts of data is
another counter-intuitive aspect of this concept. We quickly
realized that even working in groups of 10 or more on the simplest
of diagrams, we found it virtually impossible to get anything done.
As each new feature was added, the complexity of the diagram
exponentially grew to unmanageable proportions. For this reason we
began to develop computer-based systems to manage these details and
achieved some success, although again we found that a threshold was
quickly reached beyond which even the supercomputers of the day were
unable to keep up.
Word was that the extra-terrestrials
could design these diagrams as quickly and easily as a human
programmer could write a Fortran program. It's humbling to think
that even a network of supercomputers wasn't able to duplicate what
they could do in their own heads. Our entire system of language is
based on the idea of assigning meaning to symbols. Their technology,
however, somehow merges the symbol and the meaning, so a subjective
audience is not needed. You can put whatever meaning you want on the
symbols, but their behavior and functionality will not change, any
more than a transistor will function differently if you give it
Here's an example of how complex the process is. Imagine I ask you
to incrementally add random words to a list such that no two words
use any of the same letters, and you must perform this exercise
entirely in your head, so you can't rely on a computer or even a pen
and paper. If the first in the list was, say, "fox", the second item
excludes all words with the letters F, O and X. If the next word you
choose is "tree", then the third word in the list can't have the
letters F, O, X, T, R, or E in it.
As you can imagine, coming up with even
a third word might start to get just a bit tricky, especially since
you can't easily visualize the excluded letters by writing down the
words. By the time you get to the fourth, fifth and sixth words, the
problem has spiraled out of control. Now imagine trying to add the
billionth word to the list (imagine also that we're working with an
infinite alphabet so you don't run out of letters) and you can
imagine how difficult it is for even a computer to keep up. Needless
to say, writing this kind of thing "by hand" is orders of magnitude
beyond the capabilities of the brain.
My background lent itself well to this kind of work though. I'd
spent years writing code and designing both analog and digital
circuits, a process that at least visually resembled these diagrams
in some way. I also had a personal affinity for combinatorics, which
served me well as I helped with the design of software running on
supercomputers that could juggle the often trillions of rules
necessary to create a valid diagram of any reasonable complexity.
This overlapped quite a bit with
compiler theory as well, a subject I always found fascinating, and
in particular compiler optimization, a field that wasn't half of
what it is today back then. A running joke among the linguistics
team was that Big-O notation couldn't adequately describe the scale
of the task, so we'd substitute other words for "big". By the time I
left I remember the consensus was "Astronomical-O" finally did it
Like I said, I could go on for hours about this subject, and would
love to write at least an introductory book on the subject if it
wasn't still completely classified, but that's not the point of this
letter so I'll try to get back on track.
The last thing I'd like to discuss is how I got copies of this
material, what else I have in my possession, and what I plan to do
with it in the future.
I worked at PACL from 1984 to 1987, by which time I was
utterly burned out. The sheer volume of details to keep in mind
while working with the diagrams was enough to challenge anyone's
sanity, and I was really at the end of my rope with the military's
attitude towards our “need to know”. Our ability to get work done
was constantly hampered by their reluctance to provide us with the
necessary information, and I was tired of bureaucracy getting in the
way of research and development. I left somewhere in the middle of a
3-month bell curve in which about a quarter of the entire PACL staff
left for similar reasons.
I was also starting to disagree with the direction the leadership
wanted to take as far as the subject of extra-terrestrials went. I
always felt that at least some form of disclosure would be
beneficial, but as a lowly CARET engineer I wasn't exactly in the
position to call shots. The truth is, our management didn't even
want us discussing non-technical aspects of this subject (such as
ethical or philosophical issues), even among ourselves, as they felt
it was enough of a breach of security to let civilians like us
anywhere near this kind of thing in the first place.
So, about 3 months before I resigned (which was about 8 months
before I was really out, since you don't just walk out of a job like
that with a 2 week notice). I decided to start taking advantage of
my position. As I mentioned earlier, my DoD experience got me into
an internal management role sooner than some of my colleagues, and
after about a year of that kind of status, the outgoing searches
each night became slightly less rigorous. Normally, we were to empty
out any containers, bags or briefcases, then remove our shirt and
shoes and submit to a kind of frisking. Work was never allowed to go
home with you, no matter who you were. For me, though, the briefcase
search was eventually enough.
Even before I actually decided to do it, I was sure that I would be
able to sneak certain materials out with me. I wanted to do this
because I knew the day would come when I would want to write
something like this, and I knew I'd regret it until the day I died
if I didn't at least leave the possibility open to do so. So I
started photocopying documents and reports by the dozen. I'd then
put the papers under my shirt around my lower back, tucked enough
into my belt to ensure they wouldn't fall out.
I could do this in any one of a few
short, windowless hallways on some of the lower floors, which were
among the few places that didn't have an armed guard watching my
every move. I'd walk in one end with a stack of papers large enough
that when I came out the other end with some of them in my shirt,
there wouldn't be a visible difference in what I was holding. You
absolutely cannot be too careful if you're going to pull a stunt
like this. As long as I walked carefully they wouldn't make a
crinkling noise. In fact, the more papers I took, the less noise
they made, since they weren't as flimsy that way. I'd often take
upwards of 10-20 pages at once. By the time I was done, I'd made out
with hundreds of photocopies, as well as a few originals and a large
collection of original photographs.
With this initial letter I have attached high resolution scans of

The first 9 pages of one of our
quarterly research reports
Scans of the original photographs
used in that report, since the photocopies obscure most of the
5 pages from a report on our ongoing
analysis of the “language” (inappropriately titled “linguistic
analysis”), depicting the kind of diagram just barely visible on
the underside of the Big Basin craft
This material is the most relevant and
explanatory I could find on short notice.
Now that these are up, IF
I decide to release more in the future, I'll be able to take my time
and better search this rather large collection of mine that I've
sadly never organized. I'm not sure what I'll be doing with the rest
of the collection in the future. I suppose I'll wait and see how
this all plays out, and then play it by ear. There are certainly
risks involved in what I'm doing, and if I were to actually be
identified and caught, there could be rather serious consequences.
However, I've taken the proper steps to ensure a reasonable level of
anonymity and am quite secure in the fact that the information I've
so far provided is by no means unique among many of the CARET
Besides, part of me has always suspected that the government relies
on the occasional leak like this, and actually wants them to happen,
because it contributes to a steady, slow-paced path towards
revealing the truth of this matter.
Since Leaving CARET
Like I said, I left PACL (Palo Alto CARET Laboratory) in '87, but have kept in touch with
a great many of my friends and coworkers from those days. Most of us
are retired by now, except of course for those of us that went on to
get teaching jobs, but a few of us still hear things through the
As for CARET itself, I'm not sure what's become of it.
Whether it's still known by the same name, I'm quite sure it's still
active in some capacity, although who knows where. I heard from a
number of people that PACL closed up shop a few years after I left,
but I've still yet to get a clear answer on why exactly that
happened. But I'm sure the kind of work we did there is still going
strong. I've heard from a lot of friends that there are multiple
sites like PACL in Sunnyvale and Mountain View, also disguised to
look like unremarkable office space. But this is all second-hand
information so you can make of it what you will.
Around 2002 or so I came across Coast to Coast AM and have
been hooked ever since. I admit, I don't take most of the show's
content as anything more than entertainment, but there have been
occasions when I could be sure a guest was clearly speaking from
experience or a well-informed source. For me, there's just something
very surreal about hearing all this speculation and so-called inside
information about UFOs and the like, but being personally able to
verify at least some of it as being true or false.
It's also a nightly reminder of how
hectic things were in those days, which helps me enjoy my retirement
all the more. Knowing I'm not part of that crazy world anymore
really is something I enjoy on a daily basis, as much as I miss some
What I've shared so far is only a very small portion of what I have,
and what I know. Despite the very sheltered and insulated atmosphere
within CARET, I did ultimately learn a great deal from various
colleagues, and some of what I learned is truly incredible. I'd also
like to say that for what it's worth, during my time there I never
heard anything about invasions, or abductions, or many of the more
frightening topics that often pop up on Coast to Coast AM.
That's not to say that none of it is
true, but in my time working alongside some of the most
well-connected people in this field, it never came up. So at the
very least I can say my intent is not to scare anyone. My view on
the extra-terrestrial situation is very much a positive, albeit
still highly secretive one.
One thing I can definitely say is that if they wanted us gone, we
would have been gone a very, very long time ago, and we wouldn't
even have seen it coming. Throw out your ideas about a space war or
anything silly like that. We'd be capable of fighting back against
them about as much as ants could fight back against a stampede of
buffalo. But that's OK. We're the primitive race, they're the
advanced races, and that's just the way it is. The other advanced
races let them live through their primitive years back in their day,
and there's no reason to think it will be any different for us. They
aren't in the market for a new planet, and even if they were, there
are way too many planets out there for them to care about ours
enough to take it by force.
To reiterate my take on the recent sightings, I'd guess that
experimentation done in the last couple months on a device that,
among other things, is capable of interfering with various crafts
onboard invisibility has resulted in a sudden wave of sightings. It
may not explain all of the recent events, but like I said, I'd bet
my life that's exactly what happened at Big Basin at least, and it's
probably related in some way to the Chad, Rajman and
sightings. So, despite all the recent fanfare over this, I'd say
this doesn't mean much. Most importantly, they aren't suddenly
“here”. They've been here for a long time, but just happened to turn
unintentionally visible for brief periods recently.
Lastly, there are so many people selling books, and DVDs, and doing
lectures, and all that, that I would like to reiterate the fact that
I am not here to sell anything. The material I'm sharing is free to
distribute provided it's all kept intact and unmodified, and this
letter is included. I tend to question the motives of anyone
charging money for their information, and will assure you that I
will never do such a thing. And in the future, just to cover all the
bases, anyone claiming to be me who's selling a DVD or book is most
certainly not going to be me.
Any future releases from me will come from the email address I've
used to contact Coast to Coast AM, and will be sent to them
only. I'd like to make this clear as well to ensure that people can
be sure that any future information comes from the same source,
although I must be clear: at this time I do not have any future
plans for additional information. Time will tell how long I will
maintain this policy, but do not expect anything soon. I'd really
like to let this information “settle” for a while and see how it
goes. If I find out I'm getting an IRS audit tomorrow, then maybe
this wasn't too smart.
Until then, I'm going to take it slow. I
hope this information has been helpful.
