“We are slowed down sound and light waves, a walking bundle of frequencies tuned into the cosmos. We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.” ~ Albert Einstein

God bless Albert Einstein! …….But we are much more than that. We are much more than we perceive through current scientific research and our personal five senses…………..John Foster


Another featured story:

(In order to help you understand some of the intricate details concerning what actually happened, I have included here an on-going series of somewhat unbelievable UFO stories concerning real mysterious encounters that I experienced throughout my life. I will add interesting episodes, as well some analysis, as time passes. Doing this hopefully will help you and me understand the true nature of our immense wonderful universe from a more microscopic point of view.)

Throughout the centuries humans have pondered the true nature of our immense wonderful universe. We have wondered who we really are and how we fit into the entire scheme of things.
I believe Albert Einstein and new discoveries in science, religion, and history can provide you with some deeper understandings. I also believe other people and I have a few insights that might offer you some important answers and deeper understandings. I feel the answers and understandings might truly help you in your private quest in life…no matter how simple or complex your present life might be.
I am an 82 year old retired research and development electro/mechanical engineer with experience in the nuclear, aerospace, fluidic, civil and commercial fields…home builder, general contractor, artist, lecturer, and author among a several other things.
Up until 1986, at age 48, I could recall some strange things that had occurred from my very early childhood…but I really couldn’t understand them. Then in late 1986 through early 1987, in a very short time, I recalled, in extreme detail, an enormous number of so-called UFO encounters that had occurred throughout my life. I was astonished and over whelmed and remained overwhelmed! I soon found other people who had been with me during the encounters. Their memories compared to my memories established beyond doubt that our memories were true and accurate. Especially my memories indicated that encounters like those we experienced had affected many individuals and ultimately our various human cultures (including science, religion and history) since the beginning of humankind. This story suggests how in some very special significant detail. I also have met many other people who have experienced similar mysterious encounters.  — John Foster


From the Prologues of the books “Eminent Discovery: UFOs – Living within and beyond the five senses” Volume 1 & Volume 2  by John Foster:

“If you have questioned what life is or should be, or what is is or should be, you might find insight in the following pages.
If you have wondered why we live a limited existence on planet earth, you might find solace in the following pages.
And if you have ever wondered if this is all there is, have confidence; this story, supported by some witnesses, proves within acceptable reason there is not only life after death but life beyond life in the present … beyond our five senses.
This monumental story offers you some sense of understanding through my narrations of mysterious happenings that have occurred since my birth or, as I clearly remember, since my very early childhood. However, it also is a story that seriously involves and somewhat redefines all of humankind since its very beginning … including you as you read today.
It involves modern and ancient science, modern and ancient religion, and modern and ancient history … all so strongly that it has upset my entire concept of human life on earth since its very beginning.”


“This authentic true story has changed my personal and professional life dramatically! The story strongly indicates that life on earth is much, much more than we believe it is…that it is a multi-dimensional life within and beyond the five senses for each of us. It is a mysterious life, the intricate hidden details of which we most often are not aware or only vaguely aware. I was astonished when I found that this UFO story and other UFO stories are solidly compatible with The Bible, other historical writings, and the modern Ancient Alien Hypothesis, among many other things.
To understand the story more fully look at my 2001 International UFO Congress Convention talk video below and the articles and interviews in the right hand column.

*** To Earth From Heaven continues with other encounter narrations. — Comments by Steve Snodgrass, mental  health practitioner, UFO investigator: —  “John rationalizes and speculates more thoroughly about what it all means…and what it might mean. John touches base with some of his complex experiences, and then journeys into philosophical inquiry to imagine how in the world what he experiences can make sense. This is not a book of instruction. It is a book of questions, of inquiry, and hypothesis to describe things most people would rather sit back and avoid. In other words, you can take the “red pill” and remain content in the reality you’ve constructed and have been conditioned to see. Or you can buy this book and take the “blue pill” and see a universe much more like the matrix than you are afraid to admit. Have courage. John Foster has plenty of it.”       — Kindle version $9.95, Paperback $14.95.

Why I titled my second book “To Earth From Heaven”

At this late stage of my life, this among many other things is what I believe I believe:

Earth: Where most of us believe we reside now…three dimensional time/space.

Heaven: From my limited knowledge, from my reading and my experience, I have concluded and conjectured that Heaven is a place. It is a state of being. It is paradise. It is like a house or mansion with many rooms. It is near or can be far. It is God’s Kingdom. It is at hand. It is or can be in you. It is normally unseen if you are an average normal human being, or seen if you have temporarily died or are clairvoyant. It is where God, Jesus and the angels reside. It is where you might reside after your death. From the information recorded in historical documents and in legend, it was known and possibly seen and experienced before the Bible was written. It allegedly has been seen by many modern human beings during near death and out-of-body experiences. And it possibly has been seen by spiritual and UFO experiencers. …all of the above among other things.

When I was two or three years old, UFO craft materialized in thin air near others and me, sometimes with clouds of hissing roaring fog and sometimes not. It was then, during one complex encounter, that they first told me verbally that “they,” whoever “they” were, were here to change humankind and the way they did it was to enlist help from people like me. It was obvious that they had come from another dimension that was not normally seen…someplace that one could conjecture was like the historical Heaven.    Continue reading

An outstanding interview of Brad Steiger by Dan Schneider

This link will give you a good review of UFO/paranormal researcher Brad Steiger.

Brad and Sherry Steiger were two of the most honest objective researchers of our time. Brad’s responses in this article are very close to many of my philosophical conclusions I have derived from years of analysis of my own life-long UFO encounters.

Horse shies from UFO craft manifestation, at Red Rock Ranch

At Redrock Ranch, July or August, 1957…………mid afternoon:

(See bottom for an explanation of this drawing.)

Working with horses was one of my deepest desires as a young teenager. It remained so this mid afternoon at the Red Rock Ranch, which was (and possibly still is) located just a mile and a half or so east of Dubois, Wyoming. Little could I remember the periodic UFO encounters I had already experienced with other human beings–and horses–this mysterious eventful summer.     Continue reading

An important lesson on the coffin’s mysterious manifestation at Nebraska Nut and Bolt Company

The following is a part of Chapter Three in the book Eminent Discovery – Volume 1. It is another example portraying the nature of the encounters and how they were intertwined into our daily activities. It also suggests how easy it was to forget after a mysterious episode, partly because we were attending to the business of the day. And, as you will find if you read my books, we most often were being mysteriously hypnotized as or after an encounter ended. As an aside, my father being paralyzed is an example of how THEY are somehow able to control our minds. (I believe this is not a bad thing if the encounters are indeed solidly related to the truth of The Bible.)

This manifestation also demonstrates how keenly tuned in the mysterious intelligences were to our current activities. This is evident because of the timing of the different events; those bizarre events being perfectly created and timed to get certain psychological reactions from us.

The encounter obviously was meant to be a blatant demonstration about how the craft can mysterious appear from and disappear into the great unknown, beyond the  veil of the visible…another close parallel dimension not normally seen no doubt.

It was obviously meant to be a lesson on the manifestations of not only crafts and objects but also the mysterious men and beings.


“What in the hell is that,” Frank – my brother-in-law – yelled at the top of his lungs.
Frank hit the brakes, bringing our car to a screeching halt. He flung open the driver’s door and ran out into a large open adjacent lot, periodically yelling for my father and me to follow him.

Around 7:00 a.m, on an otherwise average Saturday, sometime in the mid 1970s, I still felt groggy from a long night of heavy sleep.

(Frank, my father, and I were in the building business, about to pour the concrete footings for a new bay window in the small cottage located in my family’s back yard. Expecting the concrete truck within the hour, we had just checked at the Nebraska Nut and Bolt Company for some forgotten anchor bolts. Unfortunately, Nebraska Nut and Bolt had not yet opened and we were racing back home in hopes we could have every thing ready when the truck arrived.)

A UFO causes a head-on car crash at Lake McConaughy late 1940s or early 1950s

(Including an overview of a number of UFO episodes that occurred over a period of several years at  Lake McConaughey and beyond…I have described some of the events in detail so you can get a better idea how the encounters actually happened and how they were intertwined into our normal daily lives.)

Early 1950s: We were traveling east on a somewhat remote gravel road that bordered the north shore of Lake McConaughey. McConaughey Lake is located on the North Platte River, in Western Nebraska. The sky appeared blue gray, as it (solar time) was just after sunset. As we drove up over the crest of a hill, we got startled to see what appeared to have been a head-on collision right ahead of us. We stopped our car just behind the crash and our driver got out of our car to investigate.    Continue reading

A different view of current UFO encounters

When I was young, when I first became interested in the nature of UFO phenomenon, I like most others thought that the ETs were visiting Earth from another planet, possibly for the first time. However after my flood of recollections in 1986-1987, at age 49, I changed this view to include the possibility, even the probability, that the ETs have been with us since the beginning, since the birth of humankind…and that the so-called ETs had a hand in our creation. I also have grown to believe that UFO encounters are not always what they appear to be. Some of what is reported today I believe are what you could call actual UFO encounters but encounters that are purposefully staged to convey a conglomeration of ideas and concepts…ideas and concepts that help us (humankind) advance in all fields of understanding. Several encounters experienced by others and some of my encounters definitely indicate that at least some of the so-called ETs have nurtured us throughout the ages.

An example drawing depicting when a mysterious man gave us verbal explanations concerning who the mysterious men and beings were…at the June 1957 all night experience at the Sheridan Creek Fire Guard Cabin in western Wyoming…
