This small (oo, is di+ided into three parts5 And it is )ith
re!ard to the first part that I Join a +ery lon! list of those )ho
ha+e seen and experien#ed thin!s they #annot pro+e happened*
The se#ond part is on mu#h firmer !round* It is lar!ely a
(rief synopsis of spe#ta#ular data and fa#ts a(out the Boon that
ha+e a#hie+ed exposure else)here- and )hi#h pro+ide e+iden#e
that the Boon is a +ery interestin! pla#e- indeed5
I ha+e sele#ted only small portions from all of the unusual
lunar information a+aila(le- (ut ha+e pro+ided sour#es in the
(i(lio!raphy for those interested in more #opious details*
The third part (e!ins )ith a presentation of #ertain so#ial
phenomena re!ardin! the pro(lems of telepathy that #an (e
fa#tually identified* These- ho)e+er- set the (a#,!round for the
stran!e and surprisin! s#enario they lead into- althou!h the
s#enario is admittedly spe#ulati+e in nature*
Some ha+e ad+ised me not to pu(lish this (oo, 5 on the
!rounds that it #hallen!es those e#helons of #on+entional
#redi(ility that las#i+iously !et off on de#onstru#tin! those
unfortunates )ho experien#e )hat they #anAt pro+e*
I ha+e (een mindful of this opportunisti# fa#tor for se+eral
de#ades* /ut my a!e is ad+an#in! and I ha+e (e#ome interested
in re#ordin! and )rappin! up my a#ti+e resear#h into Psi
phenomena in order to pursue less stressful +istas*
As I ha+e dis#ussed in other )ritin!s- IA+e al)ays (een
interested in Psi phenomena- and (e!innin! in %&14 it #han#ed
that opportunities to extend that interest in depth )ere made
a+aila(le*
Anyone )ith more than a mere superfi#ial interest in Psi
phenomena must of #ourse en#ounter the rather smelly morass of
so#ial resistan#e )here(y the authenti#ity of those phenomena are
methodi#ally de#onstru#ted- thus suspendin! them in dou(t*
This so#ial resistan#e- e+en if smelly- has lar!ely (een
su##essful in destroyin! all #on#erted approa#hes to Psi
phenomena* This su##ess is spe#ifi#ally a#ti+e )ithin hi!h strata
of so#ietal po)er- and )hi#h strata are other)ise entirely
disinterested in )hat lesser mortals 3O experien#e alon! these
lines*
Why it is that !o+ernin! so#ietal fa#tors need to
de#onstru#t the pro+a(le existen#e of at least some +ital Psi
phenomena is therefore somethin! that needs to (e examined and
understood*
+m
Alon! these lines of inKuiry- the existen#e and methods of
the ma#hinations a!ainst Psi de+elopment #an easily (e (rou!ht to
li!ht* /ut the treasons that !o+ern the implementation of the
ma#hinations none the less remain o(s#ured*
Thus- the so#ietal resistan#e to Psi (rea,s neatly into t)o
aspe#ts6 to pre+ent Psi de+elopment@ and to ,eep o(s#ure the
a#tual reasons for doin! so*
One reason for the (lan,et suppression )hi#h has (een
offered up (y many (efore me is that effe#ti+e formats of Psi
)ould distur( any num(er of so#ial institutions* Those
institutions )ould feel HthreatenedD (y de+eloped formats of- say-
telepathy- )hi#h mi!ht thereafter (e utiliGed to penetrate their
se#rets*
There is some rather #lear truth in this* Indeed- it is
(e#ause of this truth that some e#helons of humans are at )ar
)ith the Psi potentials of the human spe#ies 5 (e#ause those
e#helons ha+e moti+ations they )ould prefer ne+er to (e dis#losed
+ia Psi penetrationD
If this is the #ase- the #hief pre+enti+e measure )ould (e
to stamp out alto!ether any real understandin! of Psi* Indeed-
somethin! li,e this has ta,en pla#e*
And there #o!niGan#e of the nature of the situation mi!ht
remain 5 more or less (ein! defined as humans in #onfli#t )ith
their o)n Psi potentials (e#ause Psi penetrates se#rets*
Indeed- on my part for a lon! time I assumed that this )as
the (e!innin! and end of the story re!ardin! the methodi#al
suppression of Psi (y hi!h so#ietal e#helons 5 su#h as
represented (y !o+ernment s#ien#e- a#ademe and media*
As it happened- ho)e+er- the e+ents des#ri(ed in Part One
of this (oo, o##urred (e!innin! in %&12*
These are the e+ents I #anAt pro+e* None the less they
made some)hat +isi(le another possi(le aspe#t that mi!ht (e
fa#tored into the odiferous suppression of Psi that )as already
familiar to me*
This aspe#t reKuired that I introdu#e t)o unusual terms6
EARTHSI3E and SPAESI3E* These refer- of #ourse- to Earthside
intelli!en#e and Spa#eside intelli!en#e*
The #entral hypothesis of this (oo, is that if de+eloped Psi
potentials )ould (e an in+asi+e threat to Earthside intelli!en#es-
then de+eloped Earthside Psi )ould also (e a threat to Spa#eside
intelli!en#es*
After all- in that telepathy- for example- is in+asi+ely
defined as readin! minds- the distin#tion (et)een readin!
Earthside minds and Spa#eside minds )ould (e +ery narro)*
The only real pro(lem in #onsiderin! this is )hether or not
Sna#esiders exist*
is
I ha+e de#ided not to enter into the rele+ant de(ate a(out
this issue- (ut dire#t the reader to the #opious literature already
existin!- )ith spe#ial re!ard to the )ee,ly .:O RO.N35.P that
#an (e lo#ated in the Internet "see (i(lio!raphy$*
The in#lusion in this (oo, of the story I #anAt pro+e is not
(ein! offered as e+iden#e a(out the existen#e of Spa#eside
intelli!en#eL (ut (e#ause the reader deser+es to ,no) )hy I ha+e
#on#luded there is far more to telepathy than #ommonly #on#ei+ed
in Earthside terms*
In this- the thin,in! pro#eeds from a#tual experien#e- and
not from analyGin! the information pa#,a!es presented in the
)or,s of others*
The )or,s of others- of #ourse- ha+e pro+ed to (e +alua(le
in the lon! run- and they #ertainly introdu#e a modi#um of
authenti#ity that )ould other)ise !o #ompletely missin!*
In the end- thou!h- the authenti#ity of my personal-
unpro+a(le- experien#e pro(a(ly doesnAt need to (e #onsidered all
that mu#h 5 (e#ause the drift of a##umulatin! information is
inexora(ly leadin! to esta(lishin! the authenti# existen#e of
extraterrestrial intelli!en#es any)ay*
One fa#tor that )onAt (e apparent throu!hout this (oo, is
the lar!e amount of time "years a#tually$ it too, to a#hie+e the
synthesis of the fa#tors presented* I tend to (e a rather slo)
thin,er- and am sometimes e+en slo)er on the up5ta,e*
I had ori!inally intended to in#lude a len!thy dis#ussion
re!ardin! the pro(a(ility that telepathy mi!ht (e a uni+ersal
Hlan!ua!eH system of some ,ind that operates throu!h
#ons#iousness entities e+ery)here*
I (riefly allude to this in Part Three- (ut other)ise ha+e
de#ided to in#lude that dis#ussion in another )or, 5 (e#ause it
needs a lar!er information (asis that in#ludes the nature of
ener!y or!anisms*
/ut I feel o(li!ed to #omment on some of the reasons I
de#ided to !o ahead )ith the (oo, after so many years ha+e

In late %&&4- I read a )ell5D do#umented report of a lar!e .:O

The report indi#ated that the si!htin! )as attested to (y

The report Kuoted General Baltse+ as sayin!6 HI am not a

The arti#le )ent on to state that .:Os are piloted #raft and

I expanded the narration of the e+ents to in#lude some
fundamental #onsiderations of telepathy- and )hi#h theoriGed WH>

In due #ourse- I sho)ed the manus#ript to my then literary

O+er t)enty pu(lishers turned it do)n 5 e+en in the fa#e

INEO=EEBENT IN PSI RESEARH
The seKuen#e of stran!e e+ents narrated in this (oo, too, pla#e
(e#ause of my in+ol+ement )ith Psi resear#h- )hi#h (e!an out of the
(lue in %&1% )hen I )as thirty5se+en years alon!*
By life mi!ht ha+e flo)ed alon! lines presuma(ly more !ratifyin!
in mundane (ut more #omforta(le )ays had I ne+er +olunteered to (e an
experimental su(Je#t in Psi resear#h la(s*
In these experiments- there )ere hi!h and lo) points- su##esses
and failures* And there )as the opportunity to meet )ith many
fa(ulous and )onderful people*
/ut )hen one enters into Psi resear#h- one also enters into a
narro) #ultural su(set rather steamed up )ith hi!h stress fa#tors-
intri!ues- mainstream #onfusions- fear and apprehension- interne#ine
)arfare- and lar!ish #lumps of idio#y*
Additionally- Psi resear#h su(Je#ts "!uinea pi!s$ are nonentities
)ho are expe#ted to exhi(it Psi manifestations* At the same time they
are supposed to ,no) nothin!- thin, nothin!- suppose nothin! 5
(e#ause the Jo( of ,no)in!- thin,in!- supposin! (elon!s to the
resear#hers*
The su(Je#t is somethin! li,e a #omputer #hip (ein! tested to see
if it #an perform in the )ays )anted* If the #hip doesnAt perform in
the )ays )anted- then it is tossed aside into the (i! pile of anonymous
#hips that ha+e li,e)ise failed*
It is thus that the la(oratory life5span of a test su(Je#t usually
does not ex#eed three months- and durin! that time they ha+e to
under!o endless repetiti+e testin!* One of the maJor out#omes of this is
usually (ottomless (oredom*
The appearan#e of (oredom is deadly in Psi resear#h 5 (e#ause a
(ored #hip !ets into a state of apathy or non5interest- after )hi#h its
deli#ate #ir#uitry fiGGles*
I ,ne) most of this in ad+an#e- lar!ely (e#ause Psi phenomena
had al)ays (een of endless interest to me- and I had done a !reat deal
of or!aniGed readin! and study* So I had no expe#tations at all that
my allotted three months )ould someho) turn into nineteen ye ar sM
The maJor reason had not mu#h to do )ith the Sty!ian #limes of
parapsy#holo!y itself* .n,no)n to almost e+eryone at the time- the
Ameri#an intelli!en#e ser+i#es (e#ame )orried a(out- of all thin!s-
possi(le de+elopment of Hpsy#hi# )arfare ad+an#esH in the "no) former$
So+iet .nion*
The intelli!en#e ser+i#es are hea+y players- and (e#ause of the
So+iet Psi threat they more or less reKuired an a#ti+e pi#ture of Psi
potentials some)hat lar!er than standard parapsy#holo!y #ould pro+ide*
/e#ause of these unusual #ir#umstan#es- I !ot dra!!ed into se+eral
years of )or, in this re!ard5
/ut this meant that I also !ot dra!!ed into realms of often idioti#
se#re#y- into endless se#urity #he#,s #ondu#i+e of paranoia- into all
,inds of s#ien#e fi#tion dream)or,s- into intelli!en#e intri!ues )hose
+arious formats )ere sometimes li,e toilet drains- and into Kuite ner+ous
military and politi#al ramifi#ations*
By parti#ipation in this lon!5term affair had its ups and do)ns 5
and )as to in+ol+e hundreds of #ompli#ated situations- #ir#umstan#es-
and e+ents of +arious ,inds 5 of )hi#h those narrated in this (oo,
)ere only one ,ind- al(eit the most stressful and mind5(o!!lin!*
To !et into the elements of the narration- it is ne#essary to
(riefly outline )hat led up to them*
In late %&10 the entral Intelli!en#e A!en#y funded a small-
tentati+e resear#h proJe#t at Stanford Resear#h Institute* The proJe#t
at SRI )as headed (y the physi#ist* 3r* H* E* Puthoff- and I )as in+ited
to tra+el to alifornia to parti#ipate in it*
The purpose of the small proJe#t )as to dis#o+er one ESP
phenomenon that )as #apa(le of (ein! reprodu#ed at )ill* This )as the
,ind of experiment notoriously missin! in parapsy#holo!y- (ut in )hi#h
I had (een some)hat su##essful earlier*
The proJe#t )as !i+en ei!ht months to produ#e somethin! alon!
these lines* So- thereupon (e!an yet another daily exer#ise in+ol+in!
hundreds of experimental trials* These pro#eeded up and do)n in terms
of )hat )as (ein! tested- (ut ultimately 3OWN into (oredom so #loyin!
that it )as hard to fa#e yet another day of it*
In early April- %&18- in an effort to emer!e from the daily (oredom
of repetiti+e testin! ")hi#h indu#es a Qatline of ESP a#ti+ity$- I
su!!ested that )e on#e in a )hile do somethin! far out- somethin! that
mi!ht reintrodu#e a sense of ad+enture- ex#itement- and enJoyment*
The planet ;upiter )as literally far out* NASA had earlier
laun#hed Pioneer %4 and %% to fly 5(y that planet- and information
telemetered (a#, (y the t)o #rafts )ould under!o te#hni#al analyses*
Information from Pioneer %4 )ould #ommen#e in Septem(er- %&18-
The only real differen#e (et)een ;upiter as a Htar!et-H and
mundane tar!et o(Je#ts in the next room- )as its distan#e from Earth*
/ut for me there )as another differen#e* It )ould (e ex#itin! to try to
extend oneAs ESP to the planet- a form of remote +ie)in!* ;upiter )as
more remote than the next room 5 and there mi!ht (e a thrill of
Htra+elin!D in interplanetary spa#e*
/ut there )as yet another differen#e* Those lo#,ed into
#on+entional resear#h mindsets are usually ner+ous a(out no+el
experiments* on+entional mindsets tend to ta,e themsel+es some)hat
seriously- so there is usually resistan#e to non5#on+entional experiments*
The resistan#e is usually first manifested (y tar and featherin!
the proposed experiment "and e+eryone in+ol+ed$ /E:ORE it ta,es pla#e*
If that doesnAt sKuel#h the experiment- then it is merely de#lared
ridi#ulous and lau!hed out of S#ien#eto)n*
Is not a psy#hi# mind trip to ;upiter lau!ha(leF
By #ollea!ues at SRI )ere- to put it mildly- not interested in
(ein! lau!hed out of to)n* /ut I had (e#ome Kuite !loomy sin#e

So I had a #hoi#e of "%$ (ein! lau!hed out of to)n- or "0$

the ;upiter Hpro(eH )as o+er#ome )hen I said DDI Kuit- and you #an

In any e+ent- I felt it )ould lNe interestin! to see if the remote5
+ie)in! data a#Kuired in April- %&18- mi!ht some)hat mat#h the data
later re+ealed (y NASAAs #raft (e!innin! in Septem(er- %&18-
The thrill of the idea )as to !et psy#hi#ally to ;upiter (efore the
NASA +ehi#les did5 If this )or,ed e+en some)hat- it )as a ,ind of
psy#hi# one5upsmanship* The experiment )as done on personal time- on
a Saturday- a non5)or,in! day*
/ut it )as )rapped in +ery strin!ent proto#olsD At first- the

So- at the #on#lusion of the experiment- #opies of the ra) data

and Benlo Par, )here SRI is lo#ated* I had (een )onderin! ho) )e
#ould identify a distant tar!et in some other fashion than (y its name*
HIn the )ater- I laid (a#, a!ainst the ed!e of the pool and tried

de!ree North* A A+oi#eD of some ,ind said "in my mind- of #ourse$- Atry

HSo- I !ot the idea that if someone !a+e me a set of #oordinate5
ordinates they mi!ht a#t as a fo#us of some ,ind* At first my SRI
#ollea!ues thou!ht this )as silly- (ut I insisted )e !i+e it a !ood try*

HNo one understands this at all- and neither do I* The #riti#ism
is that #oordinates are only ar(itrary sets of num(ers and as su#h (ear
little real meanin! to the a#tual physi#ality of the site*
H/ut my explanation- if it is one- is that people do find their )ay
around the )orld (y usin! #oordinates* And sin#e this is so- then
there is no real reason )hy one #annot use them to find their )ay in a
psy#hi# +oya!e* As a ,ind of fo#us- so to spea,*H

HThere has (een a lot of interest as to )hy the #oordinate thin!
should )or,5 IA+e dis#ussed it )ith 3r* ;a#Kues Eallee- the famous

HWell- somethin! li,e that- (ut not at the intelle#tual le+el* There
a#tually must (e lots of mind layers that fun#tion differently*H
H/ut )hy should #oordinates fun#tion * * TFH Axelrod mused- almost
to himself*
HWell- in a #osmi# sense- if one has a round (all or a planet- and
if one )ants to di+ide it up- one )ill assi!n )hat amount to lon!itudes
and latitudes* These )ill di+ide the (all into se!ments* If Intelli!en#e
exists as a uni+ersal- then this )ould (e the (est uni+ersal )ay to

to #ome out of him* HWhy did you use that )ordFH
Well- )hy NOT I thou!ht5 HWell- the (est e+iden#e )e ha+e for

People experien#e it re!ardless of their different #ultures- their
different (a#,!rounds* If )e assume that Intelli!en#e #an (e uni+ersal-
)e also ha+e to assume that Intelli!en#e also has to ha+e sensin!

Gradually- I (e!an to realiGe that the t)o a#tually did not loo,

and ha+in! a hood pla#ed o+er my head- the Axelrod affair )asnAt all
that different from many other offi#ial and unoffi#ial experiments I !ot

Bany of those experiments had eKually dramati# elements* Bost

Well- for one thin!- there )as a 24524 #han#e they )ere there or

#ent #han#e I had (een +ie)in! my ima!ination and fantasies*

(ased on feed(a#,- they tend to for!et a(out stuff that ne+er a#hie+es

Then there are t)o additional- (ut extremely su(tle phenomena
that appear to (e in+ol+ed* They #an (e!in to ta,e on meanin! only if
they are identified and opened up for inspe#tion*
The first phenomenon has to do )ith the fa#t that most people

The se#ond phenomenon has to do )ith the fa#t that most humans
for!et a(out the Boon alto!ether* It is THERE- of #ourse* /ut (eyond
that- interest in it is ex#eedin!ly minimal*
It is some)hat diffi#ult to arti#ulate this* One )ay of (e!innin!
to do so is to point up that people are +ery mu#h interested in Bars-
for example- or in the possi(le existen#e of Intelli!ent /ein!s some)here

As it )as (a#, in %&12 and %&19- if not a#tually for!otten- my

areas #f memory stora!e* And if I thou!ht a(out the affair at all- it
)as only to note that it had happened- that it )as o+er and done )ith-
and that I didnAt dare to tal, a(out it for reasons so numerous that it
)as the (etter part of +alor to for!et them- too*
Ho)e+er- )hoe+er or )hate+er is (ehind the s#enes dealin! out

It )as entitled Some(ody Else Is On the Boon* The authorAs name

HWhat NASA ,no)s-H the frontispie#e of the (oo, (e!an-

Well- I #an tell you I ran to my o)n dra)in!s and spent a )ee,

Se+eral independent !eolo!ists )ho ha+e examined the photos

Please note that #opies of the photos referred to a(o+e #an still

HAh- I thin, I #ra#,ed a ri( )hen )e tum(led* Ne+er mind-
itAs nothin! serious* WhatAs your point hereFH
HIn our resear#h of remote5 +ie )in! #apa#ities- )e ha+e
learned that )hen the +ie)ers AseeA somethin! they donAt
understand- they explain it in )ays that ma,e sense to them*
H:or example- to a +ie)er )ho has ne+er seen an a#tual
atomi# rea#tor- )hat they are sensin! #an (e des#ri(ed as a
teapot- (oth of )hi#h are hot and A#oo,A*

pro#ess of o+erlayin! somethin! un,no)n or unre#o!nised or
unfamiliar )ith a mental ima!e )hi#h is re#o!niGed*
HThe psy#hi# su(Je#t in remote5+ie)in! a site )ith an
atomi# rea#tor may )ell o+erlay the impressions )ith a AteapotA or
a Afurna#eA (e#ause these are the memory ima!es )hi#h #ome
#losest to )hat is (ein! psy#hi#ally sensed*
HIf you ta,e the time to let the +ie)er study dia!rams of
atomi# rea#tors and photo!raphs of them and their surroundin!s-
the next time they en#ounter one in psy#hi# seein! they are more
li,ely to identify it #orre#tly rather than #all it a teapot*
90
H/ut in !eneral people do somethin! li,e this all the time*
When they en#ounter somethin! they do not understand- they tend
to interpret it in )ays they do understand- and they arri+e at an
interpretation )hi#h really doesnAt ha+e mu#h to do )ith )hat )as
experien#ed*
HIn others )ords- they pro#ess the un,no)n throu!h )hat I
#all their Areality5hoppersA and #ome up )ith somethin! that fits
their present realities 5 (ut )hi#h may not- and pro(a(ly does
not- pertain to the a#tual reality of )hat they experien#ed*
HPeople fill in the un,no)n )ith )hat fits )ith THEIR
,no)n*
HThe proof here exists in the fa#t that )hen fi+e people are
sho)n somethin! )hi#h is outside their experien#e- one of them
mi!ht say that they donAt ,no) )hat it is*
H/ut the other four mi!ht produ#e four different
explanations of )hat they sa)*
H:or example- you #alled that thin! an Ao(Je#tD* /ut )hat I
sa) materialiGed- !re) in pla#e- and I suppose de materialiGed after
)e tum(led do)n the ro#,s and dirt*
HIt may ha+e a#hie+ed an o(Je#t status at one point- (ut to

o(Je#t*
HA shiftin!5appearan#e at that*
HA full part of the pro(lem is that it is a REA=IT> pro(lem
:OR .S*
HThat thin! is outside my reality5experien#e- and so if you
,eep as,in! )hat I sensed- I am Kuite li,ely to (e!in seiGin! on

H:or example- I used the phrase Aspa#e displa#erA- (ut I

H/ut this is a ?NOWN phenomenon understood in psy#holo!y

The fa#tors (riefly outlined a(o+e seem strai!htfor)ard

sometimes mentioned in mainstream media*
Indeed- )hat 3OES a spin do#tor 3O if not to mana!e

Spin do#torism is usually mentioned only in relationship to
politi#al intri!ues- most spe#ifi#ally those emer!in! or on5!oin! at

/ut the extended fa#t of the matter is that s#ien#e-

do#torism or residues of them*
It is ne#essary to di! a little deeper in order to a#hie+e a
more firm !rasp of the meanin!s of the a(o+e #onsiderations*
It #an (e o(ser+ed- at least hypotheti#ally- that the a+era!e

Indeed- information NEE3S to (e mana!ed in order to a+oid

This natural and perpetual NEE3 automati#ally #alls forth
the profession of spin do#torism*
IP human spe#imens )ere NOT information pro#essin!
entities ea#h- in their o)n ri!ht- then the a!e5old profession of
spin do#torin! )ould not (e needed*
As it is- thou!h- human spe#imens ARE information
pro#essin! entities* That this is so results in a +ariety of
pro(lems that sometimes stress the #reati+e ener!ies of spin
do#tors in no small )ay*
/ut re!ardin! this there are sometimes t)o (lessin!s that
ease the Jo( of profi#ient spin do#tors*
The first (lessin! is that a fair share of humans donAt
really reKuire #opious amounts of information as they pro#eed
from the )om( of (irth to the ma) of death*
The se#ond (lessin! is that a fair share of humans )ill
a##ept illusory information- sin#e it does ta,e rather #opious
amounts of information to distin!uish illusory from other ,inds of
information*
Spin do#tors sin#e antiKuity ha+e apparently (een ,eenly
a)are of these t)o (lessin!s* It has lon! (een understood that
illusory information #an ser+e Kuite ex#ellent purposes- sin#e in
lar!e part there is no profess desire amon! the human masses for
other ,inds of information*
14
To this must (e added one other si!nifi#ant fa#tor that not
only eases the Jo( of spin do#tors- (ut ele+ates it into a ,ind of
po)er threshold*
In that ea#h human spe#imen is an information pro#essin!
entity- ea#h is also an information pro#essin! me#hanism*
The latter here is not mentioned in order to diminish in any
)ay the former*
The point is that information is #omposed of +ery numerous
data (ytes- the )hole of )hi#h needs to (e or!aniGed into some
,ind of information )hole*
So one fa#t in itself tends to ha+e little meanin! unless it is
#ompared to and #om(ined )ith lots of other fa#ts* In this sense-
then- one fa#t "or e+en ten of them$ only adds up to a +ery tiny
information uni+erse*
/eyond this- it is Kuite )ell understood that the human
spe#ies- uni+ersally and !eneri#ally- shares in mental eKuipment
)hi#h pro#esses information in )hat amounts to me#hanisti# )ays*
Perhaps this #an (etter (e understood (y pi#turin! the

SIT.ATION BOON RO?
There is a rather spri!htly #ate!ory of information a(out
the Boon #alled anomalies D the #ommon definitions of this term
referrin! to an irre!ularity or a de+iation from the #ommon rule*
Ho)e+er- a more pre#ise definition refers to somethin! that
pre+ailin! )isdom is Kuite #ertain #annot exist or is impossi(le 5
(ut )hi#h is found to (e existin! any)ay and is therefore not
impossi(le*
In this sense- an anomaly is somethin! that is dis#o+ered to
exist and )hi#h thus tends to disesta(lish the #omfort Gones of
pre+ailin! )isdom*
It is Kuite diffi#ult to inte!rate the dis#o+ery of anomalies

So- as mi!ht (e anti#ipatedL the s#ientifi# solution to
anomalies is to #o+er them up on the one hand- and on the other
to pre+ent their impli#ations from dri((lin! do)n into (roader
interest and appre#iation*
The s#ientifi# disinterest in anomalies )or,s Kuite neatly for

interested in se#re#y and )ant to mana!e #ertain ,inds of
information a)ay from pu(li# #o!niGan#e*
Here- it is useful to emphasiGe that an anomaly is not a
mere spe#ulation- (ut somethin! that has (een sho)n to exist*
It is easy enou!h to #omprehend that if there are +ery
!ood reasons to ensure and to #ontinue to ensure that the Boon
is a dead- dry- desolate- NAT.RA= satellite- then the dri((lin!
do)n of Boon anomaly fa#toids that more or less su!!est

The sum of all these fa#toids seems to add up as6 that
Boon and Earth )ere formed neither at the same time nor in the
same pla#e- meanin! that the Boon H#ameH from some)here else*
Bo+in! on from ro#,s- the BoonAs mean density is 8*87
!rams per #u(i# #entimeter 5 as #ontrasted to the EarthAs mean
density of 2*2 !rams per #u(i# #entimeter*
The meanin! of this is a little diffi#ult to !rasp- so IAll try
to simplify* If Boon and Earth )ere formed at the same time- and
of relati+ely the same materials- then their mean densities should
(e some)hat similar*
:urthermore- the differen#es in the mean density imply that
the Boon pro(a(ly has no solid #ore- as does Earth- and it is the
a(sen#e of the #ore )hi#h a##ounts for the density differen#es*

The multiple fa#tors of this #hapter alto!ether represent one
of those Kua!mires one #an unsuspe#tin!ly !et su#,ed into )ith
re!ard to the topi#s of this (oo,* So it is perhaps the (etter
part of +alor here to simply state )hat this #hapter expands
upon*
Hi!h 5resolution e+iden#e of the Boon sho)in! small details

sensiti+e eKuipment* /e#ause of its #osts- none of this eKuipment
is afforda(le at the pu(li# le+el* The eKuipment does exist- (ut it
is under offi#ial #ontrol*
It is a(undantly #lear that hi!h 5resolution e+iden#e a(out
the Boon has (een a#Kuired offi#ially- (ut none of it has (een
pro+ided to the pu(li#*
Instead- the offi#ial sour#es #ontinue to release only lo)5
resolution e+iden#e- none oU )hi#h sho)s smaller details of the
lunar surfa#e*
The lo)5resolution e+iden#e is apparently in ,eepin! )ith
the 3ead Boon 3i#tum 5 )hile it is almost #ertain that hi!h5
resolution e+iden#e )ound present an entirely different
understandin! of the Boon*
The details of all of this are not )ithout their interest-
sin#e one of the prin#ipal #on#lusions to (e made from them is
that the offi#ial Earthside #o+er5up of Spa#eside a#ti+ity
"o(+iously !oin! on$ #ould NOT (e maintained if hi!h 5resolution
e+iden#e of the Boon )as released*
To !et into the details- the #on#ept that the Boon is a dead-
airless satellite has (een )idely esta(lished- (ut only (e#ause all
of the AEAI=A/=E hard e+iden#e is a##epted as #onfirmin! it*
The hard e+iden#e exists in t)o forms6 )hat #an (e seen
throu!h teles#opes@ and )hat #an (e identified from photo!raphs
a#Kuired (y spa#e +ehi#les or(itin! or landin! on the lunar

The AEAI=A/=E lo)5resolution e+iden#e is so massi+e and so
e+idential that alto!ether it represents a form of lo!i#al #ertitude
that !i+es an unKuestioned (asis to the a##epted lo!i# of the dead
Boon idea*
'8
It is al)ays Kuite diffi#ult to inKuire into matters that ha+e
a#hie+ed stron! de!rees of lo!i#al #ertitude* There is a
parti#ular reason for this- al(eit one not usually re#o!niGed*
The reason is that anythin! that #onfli#ts )ith the
esta(lished lo!i#al #ertitude is automati#ally ta,en to (e illo!i#al-
and is ultimately treated in a H#anAt (eH )ay* Thus- anythin!
alon! these lines is frau!ht )ith diffi#ulties 5 (e#ause )hat is at
sta,e is no lon!er only the e+iden#e per se- (ut the lo!i#al
#ertitude deri+ed from it*
As many so#iolo!ists ha+e o(ser+ed- this is almost the same
as sayin! that #onfli#tin! e+iden#e )ill NOT (e admitted as
e+iden#e- and )ill (e sti!matiGed as illo!i#al 5 espe#ially if there
is an offi#ial ad+anta!e in doin! so*
It is therefore Kuite surprisin! to dis#o+er that the o+erall
situation re!ardin! the Boon #onstitutes a #lear5#ut example of
this ,ind of Kua!mire* Hlear #utH (e#ause there are TWO ,inds

That this should NOT (e the #ase is a(undantly #lear* Prior
to the %&24s- most Earthside teles#opes had a resolution of only

IN:ORBATION PA?AGES ?EPT APART
It #an easily (e esta(lished that some ,ind of offi#ial #o+er5up
re!ardin! the Boon )as put in pla#e lon! a!o and has (een maintained
all alon!* /ut the nature and dimensions of the #o+er5up are a lot less
#lear- and it is this la#, of #larity that introdu#es #onfusion into the
situation*
ontri(utin! to the #onfusion is that )hen some ,ind of
penetration into the #o+er5up does ta,e pla#e- the offi#ial or!aniGations
in+ol+ed simply mar#h on any)ay- and the #o+er5up remains lar!ely
undistur(ed*
There ha+e (een +ery many penetrations of this ,ind- )ith the
information do)nloadin! from them endin! up in (oo,s* Some of the
(oo,s- of #ourse- are some)hat o+er(a,ed or sli!htly hysteri#al* /ut
many of them are #almly or!aniGed and Kuite )ell do#umented*
The re+elations (y Bauri#e hatelain earlier referred to are (ut
one example* hatelain )as a strate!i# NASA insider- and must (e
a##epted as ha+in! (een )ell5informed*
En#ounters )ith Spa#esiders must therefore (e a##epted as
fa#tual- and those )ho #an tolerate the impli#ations ha+e done so*
It is helpful alon! these lines to (riefly turn attention a)ay from
)hat is (ein! #o+ered up- and to !i+e some attention to ho) #o+er5ups
are made to )or,*
Of #ourse- the (est possi(le ,ind of #o+er5up has to do )ith
installin! +ery ti!ht se#re#y around somethin!* This #an (e su##essful-
to the de!ree that outsiders ha+e no a)areness that anythin! is !oin!
on*
/ut the Boon #annot (e surrounded )ithin su#h ti!ht se#re#y 5
(e#ause there it is- in the s,y for e+eryone to see5
So- the Boon itself #anAt (e #o+ered up* /ut a#ti+ities on it #an*
This is to say that if there are lunar a#ti+ities- and if the #o+er5up
in+ol+es those a#ti+ities- then the (est )ay to institute the #o+er5up is
to esta(lish the 3ead Boon 3i#tum- to !i+e the 3i#tum #ultural and
s#ientifi# authenti#ity- and to tea#h the 3i#tum in s#hools*
Then )hen people loo, up at the Boon- there it is 5 and
per#eptions of it are surrounded in the disarmin! !lory of the 3ead
Boon 3i#tum* Aside from an o##asional li!ht on the lunar surfa#e-
people #anAt see anythin! else*
%40
Ho)e+er- some people pur#hase teles#opes* These are not +ery
D5 hi!h5resolution teles#opes- to (e sure* /ut throu!h them- many of them
report seein! thin!s that #anAt exa#tly (e fitted into the 3ead Boon
3i#tum*
And so the pro(lems of mana!in! the #o+er5up (e#ome a little
more intri#ate*
In the first instan#e of this- ho)e+er- there is an easy solution at
hand* This simply #onsists of offi#ially trashin! those teles#opi#
o(ser+ations of the Boon that #anAt (e fitted into the 3i#tum*
Thus- outsiders )ho pur#hase teles#opes #an see )hate+er they
do- (ut this really doesnAt matter (e#ause the (i! fists of mainstream
offi#ialdom are )hat #ount*
In the se#ond instan#e of mana!in! the #o+er5up- +arious lunar
a#ti+ities espied outside of offi#ial auspi#es #an either (e explained a)ay
or simply- and expediently- i!nored* :or example- most of the (oo,s
listed in the (i(lio!raphy are simply i!nored 5 at offi#ial- mainstream
le+els- any)ay*
Returnin! to the (i!!er pi#ture of the lunar #o+er5up- if one
patiently sifts throu!h all a+aila(le information- it mi!ht appear that the
#o+er5up has only to do )ith natural phenomena of the Boon 5 )ith the
existen#e of lunar atmosphere- )ater- +e!etation- et#*- ho)e+er minimal
those mi!ht (e*
Indeed- in the fa#e of e+iden#e to the #ontrary- the existen#e of
lunar atmosphere and )ater "only re#ently admitted as existin!$ )ere
denied for a lon! time- )hile the denial itself )as #learly part of the
#ompli#ated #o+er5up*
/ut one mi!ht )onder WH> natural lunar phenomena needed to (e
#o+ered up- or denied* .nder usual #ir#umstan#es- the )orld )ould
ha+e (een en#hanted to find that the Boon )as not 3ead*
:urther- this )onderment needs to (e #ompared to the intensity of
the #o+er5up 5 for offi#ial denials of anythin! stran!e or surprisin!
a(out the Boon ha+e (een enormous and endurin!- almost in an o+er5,ill
)ay*
As a !eneral rule of thum(- natural phenomena are not usually
#o+ered up "at least for +ery lon!$ unless there is a +ery !ood reason
for doin! so* And so- many ha+e )ondered if somethin! (eyond natural
lunar phenomena is the a#tual o(Je#ti+e of the #o+er5up*
In the li!ht of the a(o+e- #o+er5ups do (enefit from #onfusions
proliferated and maintained at offi#ial le+els- in that the on5!oin!
effi#ien#y of the #o+er5up #an (e maintained (y proliferatin! the
#onfusions*
Indeed- disinformation experts ha+e e+ol+ed ela(orate and effi#ient
methods for #on#ealin! somethin! (y surroundin! it )ith #onfusions*
One )ay to help maintain #onfusions is to ,eep separated +arious
,inds of information pa#,a!es that are entirely rele+ant and e+en
ne#essary to ea#h other*
%48
Su#h information pa#,a!es need to (e #om(ined- or Juxtaposed- in
order to ma,e sense out of )hat other)ise remains a #onfusion that #an
(e #apitaliGed upon for the deli!htful (enefit of #o+er5up5
One method of di!!in! into the nature and dimensions of a #o+er5
up is someho) to simplify the #onfusions in order to see )hat #an (e
seen (eyond them*
This helps different information pa#,a!es to (e#ome some)hat
+isi(le- or to stand out more #learly* It also helps in the pro#ess oU
dis#o+erin! )hat information pa#,a!es are remainin! in+isi(le or
untou#hed- and )hi#h are not (ein! fa#tored into #onsiderationD
Sometimes ere#tin! a simple #hronolo!y of e+ents and
de+elopments is useful alon! these lines* 3oin! so helps thin!s fall into
#onse#uti+e pla#e*
Althou!h some (oo,s do)nloadin! !ood- e+en pro+a(le information
rele+ant to the #o+er5up #ontain a )ealth of meanin!ful fa#toids- the
)hole of the do)nloadin! is none the less heaped and t)isted to!ether

Se#ond- if a )ide enou!h o+er+ie) is a##umulated a(out telepathy-

fa#ulty that has a most ex#ellent #han#e of (ein! summarily shot do)n
(efore it has a #han#e to open and )in, its all5seein! eye*
The most +isi(le explanation for this is that telepathy penetrates
BIN3S 5 and so its de+elopment is definitely #ast into trou(led )aters
)here any format or element of mental se#re#y mi!ht (e in+ol+ed*
It must (e more or less admitted that most Earthside human

!rasp the extent and nature of the a nti5 telepathi# antipathies that #an
(e !enerated and exerted from the top of so#ietal pyramids do)n into

I ha+e no hesitation in statin! the a(o+eL (e#ause a full part of it
is a fallout (ased on real experien#es of mine* As (ut one si!nifi#ant
example- for fifteen years I )as in+ol+ed in se#ret de+elopmental Psi
)or, at the presti!ious Stanford Resear#h Institute* The )or, "in

lun#h )ith me5
The reason6 H;esus- he #an read my mindC I #anAt let him !et

One of the amusin! aspe#ts of this is that I: telepathy is )hat it
is- then one not need to (e in the proximity of a telepath in order to
ha+e their mind penetrated*
%%2
Another amusin! aspe#t is that the fundin! a!en#ies did sponsor
the se#ret de+elopmental )or, in remote +ie)in! 5 some)hat on the
!rounds that it penetrates thin!s- not minds*
This is to say that remote +ie)in! pertains to penetration of
Hphysi#alsL not to penetration of Hmentals*D %
In any e+ent- the prin#ipal reason )hy A== formats of Psi
resear#h are mar!inaliGed- treated to ener!eti# diminishment- or
suppressed alto!ether is that those formats do in#lude potentials too
near the hated and un)anted telepathi# fa#ultiesD
So- the )hole (arn of psy#hi# resear#h must (e (urnt do)n as
Kui#,ly as possi(le- ma,in! sure that the telepathi# horses donAt es#ape*
There is one nota(le ex#eption to this- and one utiliGed for
#reati+e #o+er5up purposesD This ex#eption in+ol+es the dis#o+ery of
approa#hes to telepathy most noted either for the fa#t that they 3O NOT
)or,- or (e#ause they ser+e to disorient and defeat approa#hes that
BIGHT )or,*
Thus- the #on#ept that telepathy is a mind5to5mind thin! in+ol+in!
a sender and a re#ei+er has (een !i+en extraordinary pu(li#ity DO and
has in fa#t (e#ome the prin#ipal Earthside #ultural model for it*
Intelle#tual phase5lo#,in! into this non5produ#ti+e model is so
intense and so )idespread that Earthsiders literally #annot thin, of
telepathy in any other )ay*
With the ex#eption of some fe) experiments in the former So+iet
.nion- and in the Peoples Repu(li# of hina- the sender 5re#ei+er model
has not yielded anythin! more than sli!htly a(o+e5#han#e resultsD
E+en if the sli!htly a(o+e #han#e statisti#s are Jer,ed around a
little- none of them approa#h anythin! li,e telepathy plus*
And yet the sender5re#ei+er model of telepathy has (een #lun! to
for a little o+er a hundred years*
As my o)n information pa#,a!e a(out telepathy in#reased- it )as
lo!i#al enou!h to first assume that sin#e telepathy #ould (e seen as a
threat to all sorts of Earthside se#re#y fa#tors- those same se#re#y
fa#tors )ould not- )ith any sense of humor- loo, upon the de+elopment
of truly effe#ti+e penetrati+e types of telepathy*
This pro(a(ility still remains paramount- and #learly has an
Earthside (asis that #an easily (e esta(lished as su#h*
/ut if one approa#hes the #on#ept that extraterrestrial
intelli!en#es mi!ht indeed (e in possession of telepathy plus- then the
Earthside pi#ture- that seems so #ertain all (y itself- #an easily ta,e on
some lar!er and astonishin! dimensions-
Earthsiders #an thin, that if Spa#eside entities exist- then they
are possessed of intelli!en#e- and the same Earthsiders #an indeed
assume that alien intelli!en#e to (e- as often stated- HsuperiorH to

After all- the Spa#eside entities #an (uild #raft ex#eedin! the
limits of Earthside s#ientifi# ,no)led!e* And so not only their
te#hnolo!y- (ut their HmindsD as )ell B.ST (e superior*

E+en so- the only mind5models Earthsiders ha+e for HmindD are
their o)n rather limited +ersions of )hat mind #onsists of 5 and from

themsel+es donAt )ant to #onsider or put up )ith*
Thus- Earthsiders proJe#t THEIR minds as #on#eptualised upon all
potential extraterrestrial entities*
In this sense- the intelle#tual phase5lo#,in! re!ardin! mind is

3urin! modern s#ientifi# times- the standard ima!es of telepathy

The modern idea fundamentally holds that telepathy is BIN35TO5
BIN3- and that the (rain- or at least the head- is assumed to (e the

The pu(li# mind- as a !roup ,ind of mind- also is referred to as

Ho)e+er- in order to !et Just a (it deeper into this possi(le
issue- it needs to (e approa#hed from a sli!htly different an!le* This
in+ol+es the matter of #ons#iousness*
There are so +ery many definitions of ONSIO.SNESS that they
alto!ether assume the !uise of a #o!niti+e sumF*R /ut e+en so- there is
an offi#ial definition of it- and it is this ofte5f#hit the /i! :our more or
less #lin! to*
This definition- in its se+eral parts- is found in The En#y#lopedia
of Philosophy- pu(lished in %&91* The definition is not o(solete-
ho)e+er- sin#e it remains more or less in for#e today*
%84
The definition (e!ins )ith a referen#e to ;ohn =o#,e "%9805%147$-
the reno)ned En!lish philosopher and founder of /ritish empiri#ism*
=o#, defined ONSIO.SNESS as Hthe per#eption of )hat passes
in a manAs o)n mind * * 5 \as the pro#ess] of a personAs o(ser+in! or
noti#in! the internal operations of his mind5 It is (y means of
#ons#iousness that a person a#Kuires the ideas of the +arious operations
or mental states- su#h as the ideas of per#ei+in!- thin,in!- dou(tin!-
reasonin!- ,no)in!- and )illin! and learns of his o)n mental states at
any !i+en time*H
The En#y#lopedia then !oes on to #larify that althou!h the term
ONSIO.SNESS has many definitions- it Hhas a (road use to desi!nate
any mental state or )hate+er it is a(out a state )hi#h ma,es it mental*
*** It is #ons#iousness )hi#h ma,es a fa#t a mental fa#t*D %
onsiderin! the many am(i!uous and #onfusin! definitions of
ONSIO.SNESS- the a(o+e offers a #lini#al effi#ien#y that #an hardly
(e dou(ted* Thus- most )ould ta,e it at its apparent- and important-
fa#e +alue*
/ut the definition esta(lishes a parameter that is Kuite
interestin!L on#e it is pointed up*
:or the definition #onsi!ns the definition of ONSIO.S to existin!
)ithin the me#hanisms of the indi+idual5 This is to say- that althou!h
ea#h person has #ons#iousness- it is none the less indi+idual to that
person* :or in#reased #larity- ea#h person has #ons#iousness- and thus
ea#h is- so to spea,- an island of #ons#iousness amon! multitudes of
other islands of the same*
If- then- information is transferred (et)een the islands- it has to
(e a##omplished (y o(Je#ti+e means*
No)here in the En#y#lopedia entry is there any hint that
#ons#iousness is anythin! other than indi+idual*
Thus- (ut )ithout sayin! so- telepathy as the meldin! of
#ons#iousness independent of o(Je#ti+e means of transfer is for(idden*
There is no entry for TE=EPATH> in the En#y#lopedia* /ut there
is a rather fair synopsis of ESP PHENOBENA- in )hi#h telepathy is
referred to as a Hspe#ies of ESP-H (ut )ithin )hi#h nothin! is learned
a(out it 5 ex#ept an admission that it exists*
As it is- telepathy #annot exist- mu#h less (e explained- I: the
parameters of #ons#iousness are limited to the mental eKuipment of the
(iolo!i#al indi+idual*
Sin#e information is Hex#han!edD or Ha#KuiredH (et)een human
indi+iduals in the a(sen#e of any o(Je#ti+e methods to do so- and in
that the information so ex#han!ed results in mental per#eption of it- it
is o(+ious that a format of #ons#iousness exists that is independent of
ea#h (iolo!i#al human unit*
The En#y#lopedia definition thus seems !ood as far as it !oes- (ut
is nonetheless in#omplete*
And that definition has defi#ien#ies* :or example- it stipulates
that #ons#iousness is mental a)areness* /ut lon! (efore the
%8%
En#y#lopedia )as #ompiled in %&91- the real existen#e of the
su(#ons#ious )as #onfirmed5 The prin#ipal definition of the
S./ONSIO.S holds that it is a)are of information that the mental
a)areness is not a)are of*
Not only that- (ut that the su(#ons#ious #auses the (io5mental
or!anism to RESPON3 to information that the mental a)areness is not
a)are of5 And indeed- THIS is the )or,in! hypothesis that leads to the
effi#ien#y of su(liminal Hmessa!es*H
Additionally- the early mo( #ons#iousness resear#h resulted in the
#onsidered estimation that information WAS transferred and ex#han!ed at
some emotional su(5mental5a)areness le+el*
As a result- some ,ind of su(5mental union or (ondin! resulted in
)hat #ould only (e thou!ht of as an un,no)n ,ind of telepathy that
ser+ed to indu#e (eha+ior of a !roup5mind for#e*
One of the #on#epts that #an #ome out of this is that althou!h
ea#h indi+idual may (e an island of #ons#iousness- all su#h islands
mi!ht (e residin! in a !reater o#ean of #ons#iousness )hi#h exists
independently of ea#h human life unit*
In this re!ard- the En#y#lopedia definition esta(lishes that
#ons#iousness IS only )hat the indi+idual (e#omes mentally a)are of*
/ut stri#tly spea,in!- the definition is des#ri(in! a :.NTION of
#ons#iousness- not- so to spea,- the Hsu(stan#eH of #ons#iousness itself*
And )ith this- )e #ould no) plun!e into the intri#a#ies of
mysti#ism )hose #hief proponents ha+e al)ays held that #ons#iousness is
a uni+ersal su(stan#eL and that ea#h human is only a small manifestation
)ithin it*
/ut IAll shift dire#tion here- in order to !et (a#, to the point of
this #hapter- and indeed this (oo,*
If Spa#eside extraterrestrials do exist- and there is plenty of
Earthside e+iden#e of them- then one has to )onder a(out THEIR
#ons#iousness* :or example- is their #ons#iousness the same uni+ersal
stuff of human #ons#iousnessF
We mi!ht also ha+e to )onder if THEIR #ons#iousness is more
Hte#hni#ally ad+an#edH 5 say- somethin! alon! the lines of their
Had+an#ed material te#hnolo!y-H so ad+an#ed- indeed- that their #raft
easily diso(ey the ,no)n la)s of Ne)tonian- atomi# and Kuantum
,no)led!e on Earthside*
We mi!ht e+en (e inspired to )onder if- in their ad+an#ed
#ons#iousness te#hnolo!ies- they )ould remain as ,lutGy as Earthsiders
re!ardin! ESP and telepathy*
We mi!ht also ha+e to )onder if their telepathy is a de+eloped
+ersion of a telepathi# Hlan!ua!eH that is uni+ersal )ithin uni+ersal
#ons#iousness*
Others (efore me ha+e indi#ated that if #ons#iousness exists- then
it must ha+e operati+e Hla)s-H and #annot possi(ly #onsist only of )hat
a !i+en- indi+idual (io5mind Earthside entity (e#omes mentally a)are of*
%80
If this #onsideration is !i+en enou!h extrapolation- ho)e+er- it
#ould in#rease the possi(ility that it mi!ht (e to someoneAs (enefit to
utiliGe the la)s of ad+an#ed #ons#iousness te#hnolo!y to ensure6
"%$ that Earthside entities IQ$ NOT (e#ome mentally a)are of a

"0$ that Earthside entities 3O (e#ome #onditioned to (e mentally

The a(o+e t)o possi(ilities are only +ery spe#ulati+e- of #ourse*

ostensi(le su##ess )ould depend on 3E=ETING "or at least #onfusin!$

IAd also delete- or at least suppress- the Earthside dis#o+ery and

And so all that )ould really (e needed are a fe) su(tle tele5

As t)o additional (lessin!s for Spa#esiders- Earthsider elites are

And if one ,no)s somethin! of the BoonAs many sho#,in!

As )e ha+e seen- those fa#tors are not insi!nifi#ant*

As to the )ater- it is said to (e in the form of i#e- mostly

While this is ex#itin! ne)s- if the e+iden#e is ta,en into

that A== of the lunar )ater is only in the form of su(5surfa#e

%82
As any di#tionary or en#y#lopedia )ill #onfirm- a #loud is
defined as Ha +isi(le mass of parti#les of )ater in the form of

the mass of )ater parti#les )ould ha+e nothin! in )hi#h to

As to the lunar atmosphere- the Ameri#an Geophysi#al .nion
re#ently indi#ated that althou!h H#on+entional )isdom says the

#lose enou!h to the truth- the spa#e Just a(o+e the lunar surfa#e

There is- of #ourse- no dou(t that the lunar atmosphere is
not li,e EarthAs* /ut e+en if more tenuous and not as thi#,- the

Thus- the .NO::IIA= sour#es of the past that referred to
the existen#e of lunar )ater and atmosphere ha+e turned out not
only to (e #orre#t- (ut ironi#ally +indi#ate their authors*
One of the sardoni# fallouts of this is that the materials-

One #an hypotheti#ally dedu#e- as almost all ea!le5eyed

It o(+iously in+ol+ed other fa#tors 5 )hi#h- themsel+es-

The O::IIA= +ersions emanated from the #om(ined auspi#es
and !ar!antuan systems of !o+ernment- s#ien#e- a#ademe and
maJor media* The offi#ial +ersions lon! held that there #ould not
(e )ater "or atmosphere$ on the Boon* So all offi#ial reports to
the pu(li# )ere !eared to reinfor#e the idea of the a(sen#e of
)ater*
The .NO::IIA= +ersions emanated from numerous
indi+iduals 5 some of )hom o(+iously spent #onsidera(le resear#h
time- effort and money to produ#e their (oo,s and arti#les*
%81
Amon! these L for example- )as :red Ste#,lin! "see
(i(lio!raphy$- )hose %&'% (oo, detailed the existen#e of lunar
)ater "and mu#h more- su#h as +e!etation and artifi#ial
stru#tures$*
The unoffi#ial +ersions )ere of #ourse trashed (y +arious
and sometimes nefarious a#ti+ities of offi#ialdom*
No) that the existen#e of lunar )ater has (een #onfirmed-
the (etter of the unoffi#ial sour#es are +indi#ated 5 at least as
far as )ater and atmosphere are in+ol+ed*
Ho)e+er- if the unoffi#ial ea!le5eyes #ould dete#t e+iden#e
for lunar )ater as early as %&'%- then it is almost #ertain that the
same eyes #an dete#t OTHER lunar fa#tors- too- and dra)
appropriate #on#lusions a(out them*
:or example- e+en offi#ial lo)5resolution photos a#Kuired
from NASA sho) many massi+e !olf (all Hthin!sD in the most
unli,ely lunar pla#es* These and the lar!e domes that appear and
disappear- are not as hard to dete#t in the offi#ial photos as is
the )ater*
This author is not the first to noti#e that +oya!in! to the
Boon a(ruptly #eased some t)enty 5fi+e years a!o 5 and did so
after the utterly enormous expenditures of !ettin! there in the
first pla#e*
In attemptin! to identify offi#ial explanations for this Hloss
of interest in the Boon-H the one most freKuently en#ountered is
"(elie+e it or not$ that THE ABERIAN P./=I had (e#ome
disen#hanted )ith #osts and results of the NASA Boon pro!ram*
It is true that the Ameri#an pu(li# SOBETIBES #an influen#e
maJor affairs* /ut the So+iet .nion also stopped !oin! to the
Boon* In the former So+iet .nion )hat the So+iet pu(li# thou!ht
a(out anythin! did NOT matter at all* Any)ay- as it turned out
on the Ameri#an side- NASA stopped its expensi+e Boon #oloniGin!
!oal 5 (ut promptly undertoo, e+en more #ostly spa#e a!e
proJe#ts in different dire#tions*
Thus- the Boon disappeared into anonymity (ehind all of the
other spa#e a!e proJe#ts 5 e+en thou!h s#ien#e- NASA and
!o+ernment insiders #ertainly did ,no) of the )ater and
atmosphere potentials that made the Boon ultraMripe for
#oloniGation*
It #ertainly ta,es a rather simplisti# !ulli(ility to a##ept
that the Ameri#an efforts to #oloniGe the Boon )ere a(ruptly
#an#eled (e#ause the pu(li#- of all thin!s- had lost interest*
Indeed- durin! the %&94s t)enty manned Apollo #raft and
laun#h eKuipment had (een planned- ea#h paid for at !reat #ost-
ea#h (uilt and relati+ely ready to !o*
>et- only se+enteen Apollo missions lifted off- )hile the
remainin! three )ere a(ruptly terminated*
%8'
So- )ater and atmosphere on the Boon* We had landed
there se+eral times 5 al(eit in lo#ations )here nothin! more than
the soil and ro#, immediately (eneath #ould (e seen* No hi!h5
resolution photos of lunar +istas as seen from the lunar surfa#e
)ere e+er released* Great foota!e- thou!h- of the sand in )hi#h
the :la! )as planted- the one )hi#h inad+ertently started flappin!
in the lunar (reeGes*
/uried in the #o+er5up are THREE unused Apollo #rafts* It
is perfe#tly lo!i#al to )ant to find out )hy they )ere left to rust
and rot- and )hy a t)el+e5year- multi5(illion dollar effort should
a(ruptly (e a(andoned 5 on the rather ridi#ulous ex#use that the
pu(li# had (e#ome disinterested and non5supporti+e*
Indeed- the disinterested pu(li# )as NEEER informed that )e
)ould not !o (a#, to the Boon* Instead- the Boon- fully supplied
)ith )ater and atmosphere- )as simply #aused to fade a)ay into
offi#ial o(li+ion*
And there the matter )ould ha+e rested 5 ex#ept for the
emer!en#e of unoffi#ial +ersions of the Boon- its anomalies- and its
#uriosities D and all of )hi#h ha+e turned out to (e #orre#t
re!ardin! lunar )ater and atmosphere*
If one ta,es the interest and time to read some of these
unoffi#ial sour#es "perhaps (e!innin! )ith :red Ste#,lin!As
#ompetent %&'% (oo,$- then one possi(le reason hoo+es into +ie)*
As (ut t)o histori#al examples that help !i+e reality to this
reason- the follo)in! photos "a#Kuired durin! the %&94s and

When the o(Je#t sensed it )as spotted- it rapidly put on

BAH58 in order to do this5 BAH58 is EER> fast- and no
Earthside #raft is any)here #apa(le of it*
The siGe of the fast5mo+in! #ylinder )as estimated to (e
t)o or three times that of the So+iet BIG #raft* It almost exa#tly
mat#hes the one in the earlier NASA photo- (ut )hi#h seems to

of this ,ind- or e+en on past unoffi#ial +ersions or (oo,s*

After the sin!le- most o(+ious impli#ation of these Internet
sour#es sin,s in- I: it does- one mi!ht )onder )hy luminous .:Os
are found in the +i#inity of (oth Earth and the Boon*
Another Internet approa#h is to a##ess the !eneral topi#s of

Indeed- the mar+elous sear#h en!ines of the Internet )ill
lead one thither and yon throu!h all ,inds of lunar fa#ts and
fa#toids 5 of )hi#h only one5tenth are needed to help fill out a
+ery pro(a(le reason for NOT !oin! (a#, to the BoonD
That reason is more a)esome than six (illion tons of lunar
)ater in the form of su(5surfa#e i#e*
Apparently that reason has (een existin! for a lon! time-
)as dis#o+ered to (e existin! durin! the lunar ad+entures and
misad+entures of the %&94s- and is still existin! today*
And (ehind all the offi#ial s#enes and #o+er5ups- that
reason seems to (e !ettin! more #ompli#ated and extensi+e than
e+er (efore* And it is (oth ridi#ulous and hilarious that
mainstream offi#ialdom still pretends it doesnAt exist- and still
stru!!les to maintain the #o+er5up*
One of the stran!est fa#tors a(out all of this is that the
topi#s of lunar .:Os and stru#tures are seldom inte!rated into
the o+erall Earthside .:O situation and its +ery many (oo,s and
dis#ussions* Indeed- in spite of #opious lunar .:O e+iden#e-
