UFOs At The Core Of Our Culture

After some time, as people became aware of my unusual life-long encounters, I was asked to speak to various UFO groups across the country. Many were small UFO groups and others were moderately large. The largest audience was to the 2001 International UFO Congress Convention in Laughlin, Nevada.

Fortunately, I had prepared and given talks to the 2000 Ozark UFO Conference and several others. In total, preparing for the International Convention and the Ozark Conference, I spent well over six months, full time, fine tuning my story and creating drawings for illustration. Since it took over fourteen years to understand what had happened to me and to write the two books Eminent Discovery and To Earth From Heaven, you could say it took me the total of those fourteen years to prepare for these two important talks. I was the Keynote Speaker at the Ozark talk and a Featured Speaker at the Laughlin talk. In total, for the books and the talks, I created over 170 drawings…most representing my view when the mysterious encounters occurred. The Ozark talk shows more of my lack of speaking experience, but conveys more of my genuine emotional reaction to the bizarre knowledge of the more-than shocking experiences. The Laughlin talk is probably the most comprehensive and all-inclusive talk I’ve given.

As a matter of interest, I also have been interviewed somewhat extensively on radio, TV, and on internet audio blogs — in major and minor newspapers and minor magazines. And I’ve participated in UFO studies sponsored by major and minor universities…including a few doctoral studies.

About jafos

I am a 83 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. The mysterious intelligences connected to my encounters have told me that they are "the monitors and Keepers of the earth" and are responsible to a hierarchy that includes "the arch angels Michael and Gabriel," who are responsible to the entity we have know as "Christ," who is in charge of this corner of our immense complex universe. They explained further that they are not allowed to interfere in the affairs of humankind except at certain times, when things are going awry or are dangerous. They said this is one of those times, one of those eras. They continued to state that if they hadn't interfered in the past, we would have destroyed ourselves...and that if they don't interfere now and in the future, we will indeed destroy ourselves. Strictly for your own benefit, take a look at the information here on and read the books I've written in order to understand in some detail what this is all about. The website and books can give you insight into how so-called UFO encounters have affected our sciences, religions, and history...and how they most likely will affect our future.
