My letter response to a psychiatrist who asked me if I thought real UFO encounters might be connected to psychosis such as schizophrenia

…..John Foster…….12-3-15

“Do I think UFO encounters might be connected to psychosis, such as schizophrenia…?

From my post 1986 recollection experience with UFO investigators, professionals of various persuasions, and common ordinary people like me (many of whom include individuals in the previous two categories), I feel that humans are now taking a giant step forward in understanding the nature of our universe, which of course includes Earth. This is because of clues that are sometimes obvious and sometimes subtle….including the observations below.
✽ Through memory (which is the only way one can analyze anything), I have analyzed the minute details of my encounters closely and have determined that my memories of UFO happenings and other things physical and otherwise are accurate.
✽ I have met many people like me and many of the elements of their experiences match mine, sometimes in astonishing ways.
✽ There are several witnesses who recall parts of some encounters, our memories matching in some cases down to the minute details, suggesting our memories are accurate.
✽ Some elements of my encounters and others’ encounters are described nearly perfectly in written history, including the ancient Sumerian, Egyptian and Greek texts, among many others, including some of the phenomenon and happenings described in the Bible.
✽ Other elements of my encounters are reflected in new discoveries of modern science, including the behavior of subatomic particles…which seem to be modifying Eienstein’s theory of relativity. This suggests that our concept of life in time/space is somewhat an illusion…time being the most misunderstood…which leads to most other human perceptions being misunderstood (all of which is probably orchestrated as below).   

Time and space being illusions was one of Carl Sagan’s most advertised concepts and many other scientists’ most advertised concepts since his death. (Eric Julean’s The Science of Extraterrestrials and Michael Talbot’s The Holographic Universe are two books that help in understanding the unusual nature of UFO encounters, historic and modern.) The nature and development (arrival) of the craft and beings of my encounters also support the idea that time and space are illusions, at least to some extent. (You would have to read my books to completely know what I’m referring to here.)

Sometimes they, the craft, were just there when we turned around and saw them. Or they could come flying in just over the tree tops as we, at times, heard music and/or rumbling or roaring sounds. And at times they developed out of a clear distorted atmosphere, a light blue or gray haze, or a churning smoke-like dark gray fog (when the roaring sounds could knock our socks off). (Many UFO experiencers see this but do not report it.) This along with many other things strongly suggests other-dimensional qualities, not only of the Ets and craft, but of our concepts concerning the physical nature of the Earth.
✽ After recalling most of the information concerning my encounters (which occurred from birth to the summer of 1986) and then after meeting the “familiar strangers” in 1987, the sometimes minute details of my encounters indicated I had been trained, physically and mentally conditioned, and educated throughout my entire life to carry out a particular task in my later years. The task was related to the “familiar strangers,” as well as specific locations and buildings, among other things, mostly located in Nebraska and the Midwest. (This was explained to me verbally and experientially, including visually several times.)

The others found that their tasks, revealed to them by various means, including UFO encounters and so-called spiritual encounters, were very similar, in a few cases identical to mine down to the minute technical details. This included particular locations and well known landmarks.
✽ All of this and many other happenings could not have occurred unless our lives, as individuals, were being orchestrated by some mysterious intelligences that normally resided and still reside beyond the veil of the visible. But when appropriate they could/can become visible, also breaking the lower barrier of sound…such as a rich male voice, for example, speaking from a craft, from thin air, or from inside our heads. We talked about it to verify it was actually happening at those times.
✽ Annie and I separated for a period 18 months at one time because of all of this…and I experienced phenomenal things that could only be classed paranormal….once, seeing a magnificent pattern in the sky that included clouds and the sun, multiple unusual interaction with some animals, strange lights and happenings related to Native American mythology, shocking coincidental happenings with other people, a few shocking visions, what seemed to be real living dreams that I later found connected to history and other realistic things…among many other things.

Only once did I hear a voice in my right ear, my mostly deaf ear. It said something similar to, ‘Prepare yourself, they are adjusting the transmitters so you can understand more clearly.’ I was shocked and thought I was hallucinating…but then, it twice repeated the same message in louder volumes and I knew there was no mistake, someone, some intelligence beyond our common reality was then communicating and most probably had always communicated with me through something similar to ESP, in this case breaking the lower sound barrier, at least in my brain or right ear. It was a time when I had isolated myself to complete the manuscript of my first book, Eminent Discovery. (During what appear to be the physical/other-dimensional time travels, I was shown and told that I would write at least two books that would not sell well because most people would not have even the slightest interest…of course a fact that is now evident….but I wrote them anyway.)
✽ OK, I could go on and on, but it wouldn’t contribute that directly to your work. I included all of this to help you see that what I’ve experienced is real and is related to current human endeavors.
✽  One of my at least temporary conclusions is that if what I experienced is true and somewhat accurate and if this sort of thing also occurred in history (events that suggest the so-called Ets are connected to who we understand are the “ancient gods” and who we have understood to be angels and even God Himself) then that intelligence, whoever it truly is, is now orchestrating the progression of our culture, even in minute ways that we can’t now totally imagine.
✽ So, in your field, psychosis in some cases might not be what some professionals believe it is…therefore the common treatments used may not help but harm. Most of my and others’ encounters can not only be classed as paranormal, but spiritual…thereby lending credence to at least some of the unbelievable happenings described in historical religious documents. As you have suggested Schizophrenia may truly be related to communication with the other side so to speak, at least in some cases. Etc, etc, etc.
✽ During my last close overt encounter, I was told by the Ets that remembering my encounters would negate their purpose. I was given a choice, only there and then, to continue and not remember or to remember and be connected to the “familiar strangers” who could possibly help me develop my more spiritual or metaphysical abilities so I could carry out the task I had been trained to do my entire life. I don’t remember choosing, but I must have chosen the latter…which includes helping an influx of Central American, Mexican and other orphans and immigrants who, I was told, would enter the US at some future time (which obviously is now). Yet, unless the “Ets, gods” show up again in a close caring manner, I have opted out of the program in favor of art. Among several other things during the time travels, I was personally told by a young female that she would personally die if I chose not to participate. But, that is not enough…I won’t play games.
If this is true (the orphans, etc.) you are in a strategic location. I wonder if there is a connection. (I wonder who it is that we both know.) Others here have already worked with the orphans and immigrants. Also, the encounters of a few others indicate the Earth is in a trial period, being given a chance to become intergalactic, inter-dimensional citizens…but, “they,” whoever they truly are, say we will have to put our house in order and learn not to kill and harm each other over some insignificant turf war and other petty things…yet, I wasn’t personally told this. I hold all things suspect.
Well, I did go on and on didn’t I. I wasn’t that brief. But, the story is so long and complex. I feel I didn’t do a very good job in giving you more details that could relate to your work, but hopefully you get the general idea. I have taken the standard psychological tests and have been declared sane, not imaginative by most all of the professionals I’ve mentioned and several others. I am told that I harbor no psychosis…and again, there are the several witnesses who validate parts of the story. And as above there are many other things that also validate my story.

I hope this answers at least a part of your question of whether or not real UFO encounters might be related to psychosis such a schizophrenia, etc……the best…..John”

About jafos

I am a 75 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, author. 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. Needless to say, I became almost totally devastated; my entire life was turned up-side down. A few witnesses have since recalled some of what I recalled, enough to convince me and them I am not psychotic or imaginative. In other words, believe it or not these unbelievable things actually happened. I have spent the last 30 years researching, writing and trying to understand. As a result of my intense efforts, I now can offer you three books and a website ( to help you and humankind try to understand some of the hidden mysteries of life and UFOs.
