I know many of you out there do not believe that UFOs can be real. However, I know many people who do believe they are real. I know many people, like myself, have actually experienced so-called close UFO encounters throughout long periods, some for many years. I’ve met many of those people personally.
Since I believe the various strange, mysterious aspects of UFO encounters can enhance our understanding of reality, especially in the areas of science, religion and history, I have spent the last 30 years devoting my life to understanding life’s meaning, using my detailed understandings of my own UFO experiences, The Bible, and other modern and historical writings as an anchor. I have done this because I believe it will help all of humankind beyond our imagination.
My story is extremely unusual, complex, and lengthy…reaching into the depths of science religion and history. But I have found that most people are not in the least interested in UFOs or their meaning. Yet, I know some of you are or might be. So, for those who might be interested in the detailed meaning of life, in respect to UFO encounters, I’ve offered this attempt to put some of the pieces of my story together. It’s entitled “Life’s Sense.”
Part 10 – Life’s Sense
An unusual temporary rationalization concerning the meaning of life
by John Foster
My View Of The Nature Of Our Universe is a series of articles explaining my understandings of reality. The series reveals my growing understandings as I continuously reflect on the enormous number of so-called UFO encounters others and I experienced over a period of 46+ years…as well as the unusual interactions others and I experienced with “the familiar strangers” and the unusual UFO and spiritual sightings and encounters we had after my 1986/1987 flood of recollections. My 1986/1987 flood of recollections occurred throughout an intense period of a few months when, at age 48 and 49, I spontaneously recalled the enormous number of encounters that had occurred since my birth, which was in 1937. As I recall I was never alone during the encounters except for a few short episodes. There are some people who were with me who recall parts of a few encounters…enough to convince them and me that my memories are accurate. I found the encounters occurred from coast to coast and from Canada to Mexico, most occurring in Eastern Nebraska and in and around the city of Lincoln…also many occurring in Wyoming and Colorado.
My View Of The Nature Of Our Universe article series also reflects my understanding of my normal life and others’ normal lives as I have perceived them throughout the years since my birth, my memories in some cases being as clear as crystal and in other cases slowly dwindling. I am particularly interested in passing on the knowledge I have (the knowledge I am aware of through memory) concerning what affects the strange phenomenon might have on our physical and social sciences, current and historic religions, written history, and legend…legend which has been passed on verbally, including strange legendary happenings that flow back beyond the birth of humankind.
In my view my story, like several other personal stories, is unique but revolutionary in understanding the earthly reality of humankind…especially when it is reflected against other spiritual stories and UFO stories that are being reported during our modern times, as well as those that have been reported throughout most all eras of history, possibly even prehistory.
I am particularly interested in passing this information on to who we consider normal people who might be interested…i.e. you and others like me…you might say to the average person on the street. I feel the new revelations suggested by 1) the strange things that happened to me and the other people with me, 2) the unusual information we received verbally, and 3) the strange ideas and concepts we perceived through conjecture and speculation will help those who haven’t yet experienced UFO encounters and other encounters that occur in the realm of the great unknown. This also includes those who actually did experience strange encounters but don’t yet remember. I feel the new knowledge will help people grow themselves toward a more broad and fulfilling personal reality…a more rewarding personal eternal existence.
At this time in the realm of worldly UFO investigation and research, many diverse conclusions have been reached by a number of individuals and organizations. Some of these individuals have actually experienced the strange encounters and many have not. In a lot of these cases, generally accepted cultural concepts have been discarded and replaced by new revelations that somewhat negate our traditional understandings of science, religion and history. On the other hand, those who harbor traditional concepts on the scientific front, many of our scientists for instance, have flatly declared UFO encounters imaginary dilutions. On the religious front many fundamental Christian enthusiasts declare UFO encounters evil and the work of the Devil. And when comparing UFO encounters to mysterious events in history, many historians will not accept the fact that “the gods” (with a small “g”) were actually connected to what some of us today would call extraterrestrials, or more accurately stated, those who fly in UFO craft, or that simply have been seen in mysterious crafts and objects, some flying and some not.
In my investigations and research of my own encounters and those of many others, I have come to the conclusion that UFO craft and those who fly in them (or are simply seen in them or out of them) are an integral part of our reality and they always have been. As a matter of fact, I have suspected that the so-called aliens, those who fly in the craft, etc, are possibly us or an extension of us individually. I also have considered that they are the angels of The Bible and other mysterious religious and historical characters. I know this, as a result of other credible investigations, is a recent popular concept being advanced and more readily accepted by more and more people as time flows on.
Now being a nearly eighty year old old man, like many old men, I can look back on my life and see what seems to be wonderful (and in some cases not so wonderful) experiences. And I can remember the many lessons that I’ve learned from extra ordinary people who include many of those human beings with whom I have had the good fortune to meet personally…sometimes on my terms and sometimes on theirs…not all meetings being in the least positive…and of course not all being negative. This includes those mysterious men and beings others and I met during my so-called UFO encounters.
These are things and thoughts that I know some of you consider common. However, I believe covering some of the more common ideas that might be related to an up-coming commentary is necessary to set the stage, so to speak.
So, considering that the stage might be somewhat set, let’s move on to Life’s Sense…to see if life might have meaning at all.
If you are still with me, it’s important for you to know that I was raised a Christian and still consider myself a Christian. However, my wife and I no longer attend church weekly. Generally speaking, my strange encounters and others like them have raised critical questions concerning main-line religion and fundamental Christianity. The encounters have suggested that the story of Christ was, in many ways, very similar to personal modern day UFO “contactee” experiences. This has not been readily accepted by those people in positions of Christian authority. In recent modern times, in the realm of Christian doctrine, UFOs have been rejected as being delusional or simply evil, demonic…a doctrine that has been fanatically protected. Sadly, I believe this has led to the degradation of “The Christian Church.”
It is interesting to note that the so-called Ets (aliens) are not totally alien, but more fundamental members of Earth’s population than humans. According to the information I received from my own encounters they had a hand in our creation and have nurtured us throughout the ages. They have been founders, the angels and brotherhoods of most cultures and religions, especially the most prominent religions on Earth today…those I encountered, I was shown and told, connected to the Arch Angels Michael and Gabriel.
On the scientific front, because of my experiences concerning the new scientific experiment they conveyed to me, because they introduced my friend and me to other inventors of history, as well as their inventions…because of the information they gave me concerning the nature of ESP, etc…I now strongly suspect that most prominent inventions are conveyed to certain individuals through mechanisms like ESP. In this way they control the scientific progress of humankind…in the end, thereby developing conditions on the Earth to allow more and more humans to survive comfortably.
Through my investigations and somewhat extensive research, as well as the clearness of my memories, I have come to the conclusion that the mysterious men and beings who we met at close range, those who spoke to us in perfect English, were directly connected to or were the fundamental foundations of The Masonic Brotherhood (the Masonic Order), other mysterious brotherhoods, Christianity and other historical religions (such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Mohammedanism), and Native American spirituality, etc. The mysterious men and beings I and we met during the encounters many times referred to the brotherhoods, Native American spirituality, the spiritual nature of life, ancient history (especially Ancient Egyptian history), the development of especially the United States, the improvement of individuals such as myself and those who were with me, many other things that are in written history and prehistory, and many other things.
In other words, the encounters, the craft and individuals who are associated with them are now and always have been at the very foundations of many of our modern and historic social/cultural entities. My encounters and other encounters like them give us clues and direct information that can more accurately define the nature and meaning of life for each of us individually as each of us struggle to make some sense of life’s meaning. According to the information I received and conjectured from my encounters, this has always been the case dating back to and most probably before the creation of humankind.
So, because each of us lives in an individual limited body box of perception that is predominately physically isolated from other human body boxes, our individual worlds are restricted by the five senses. If we are not aware of our more spiritual abilities and the so-called spiritual influences that are being continuously forced upon us by those entities we don’t normally see, we become prisoners of our own limited perceptions…i.e, until we can reach out mentally and spiritually to ask the questions concerning what the nature of our universe truly might be.
In the end analysis, because we all are somewhat individual isolated entities, but with the help of those mysterious individuals we don’t normally see, we (ultimately also with the help of who we know as God) all create our own worlds…worlds that hopefully will eventually mesh nicely with others’ individual worlds, worlds that will in the end mesh nicely with the Will of God to make the Primary Creator more than what he/she was…second by second, minute by minute, day by day, year by year, etc.
