Whitley Strieber’s new book is, “A New World“.

It truly is about one man’s arduous saga to accomplish contact, and I think he has done just that.

There are three parts to this article, the myth, the science and the psychology.

The Myth

Within all myth is truth. The truth may be so old and convoluted due to retelling, societal growth and change that it’s hard to find, but there is truth in there.

I think some of what we think are visitors are non-corporeal (without a body) and indigenous to this planet, and that they are a race that we allowed to come here because they were in great need, many thousands of years ago. And… as so many of the legends go, they were also not of the ethical caliber we were, or maybe they were fleeing from a great war and were acting out of survival mode – speculation at its best.


The Tuath(a) Dé Danann (Irish: [t̪ˠuəhə dʲeː d̪ˠan̪ˠən̪ˠ], meaning “the folk of the goddess Danu“), also known by the earlier name Tuath Dé (“tribe of the gods”),[1] are a supernatural race in Irish mythology. They are thought to represent the main deities of pre-Christian Gaelic Ireland.[1] The Tuatha Dé Danann constitute a pantheon whose attributes appeared in a number of forms throughout the Celtic world

Mythological Cycle

The Mythological Cycle, comprising stories of the former gods and origins of the Irish, is the least well preserved of the four cycles. It is about the principal people who invaded and inhabited the island. The people include Cessair and her followers, The Formorians, The Partholinians, The Nemedians, The Firbolgs, the Tuatha Dé Danann, and the Milesians.[7] The most important sources are the Metrical Dindshenchas or Lore of Places and the Lebor Gabála Érenn or Book of Invasions. Other manuscripts preserve such mythological tales as The Dream of Aengus, The Wooing Of Étain and Cath Maige Tuireadh, The (second) Battle of Magh Tuireadh. One of the best known of all Irish stories, Oidheadh Clainne Lir, or The Tragedy of the Children of Lir, is also part of this cycle.

There is even a legend about the first inhabitants of this world being like spirits, or ghosts – here but not here…

Then… If my theory that we are avatars – and some of the best avatars ever created for these ‘others’ – first timers, is anywhere near the truth, then we were created too perfectly and as time went on we developed souls and this soul energy attracted the energy of ‘spirit’ and the combination of the soul and this spirit became self-aware and sovereign. We ‘became’ real, sort of like the story of Pinocchio. BUT there is an old myth about those that came here looking for sanctuary. It did not go well for either peoples. Thus they, as we became more people-ish, decided to withdraw from this plain of frequency as it became too dense for them (see Irish mythology – or history depending on how you choose to see it), and yet they needed to have this experience of this here and now for their own development. Which brings up this theory of mine about Riders, the beings (the Jinn, the Fae and the old ones) meant to inhabit these beautiful bodies we all have.

But because we became sentient they had to withdraw – only asking or finagling their way into a body. Or they ‘rode along with us – quietly, mostly never making themselves known. These riders are… many things, a spectrum of intelligences of all kinds that find attachment through frequency harmonics. They mostly ride along journeying the journey with us. Sometimes helping, sometimes hindering but always in concert with or in harmony with the dominant attitude of the ego and the over-arching soul lesson in the current incarnation. (All because there is some very important unwritten law about soul slavery that can get anyone in this universe in really, really big trouble – I think)

Remember this Movie?

This was where we realized that we just might be looking at an already well developed tech and that there were several ways this could happen.

  • One way might be to create a clone
  • Another way might be to create an avatar body that could cope with the constraints of the environment for you.
  • Or, there is always the possibility that an automaton could be used.

And these are all ways that would include your own conscious input and control instead of taking over another organic being.

The Science

Whitley talks about how they live outside of time, i.e.: they know everything that is going to happen and why – almost mathematically. This makes me think of the Quantum-consciousness model of consciousness, superposition, intent, and consciousness as a ground state (it came first – not the other way around…

Just a word about superposition in two ways:

  1. as science math

Quantum superposition is a fundamental principle of quantum mechanics. It states that, much like waves in classical physics, any two (or more) quantum states can be added together (“superposed”) and the result will be another valid quantum state; and conversely, that every quantum state can be represented as a sum of two or more other distinct states. Mathematically, it refers to a property of solutions to the Schrödinger equation; since the Schrödinger equation is linear, any linear combination of solutions will also be a solution.

An example of a physically observable manifestation of the wave nature of quantum systems is the interference peaks from an electron beam in a double-slit experiment. The pattern is very similar to the one obtained by diffraction of classical waves. From <>

  1. as consciousness

Ok, in plain words, think about telos, or final intent (a goal). An intention is an idea about what you want to have happen in the future (time – which is an artifact of consciousness) which creates a visual-spatial representation or story in your mind’s eye.

When the story forms in your consciousness it is in a superposition quantumly; instead of watching it happen in the here and now, you are watching it happen in the future.

Once you watch it you then know what it is you have to do to create it and you make your first steps; or, once you watch it you collapse the wave form out of its super position and backwards into time to the here and now. Interestingly enough, once you take the first step in the here and now, the universe conspires to help you out and you get synchronicity. From <>

What it boils down to is that observation actually changes what is there – what you observe and it is actually chosen in your mind by what you decide to see –

When Max Planck was asked what had he learned, he said that;

“Consciousness is fundamental and causal. Space and time arises from consciousness, not the other way around. You can’t get behind consciousness.”

(Consciousness IS the unified field. – A. Bell)

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”

Max Planck, Where is Science Going?

We are entangled….

Whitely said it makes the visitors emotionless to already know what is in front of them (probably because of the way they live in time which is not linear to them) and they need to share time in a body with us, to feel the feelings living in time can bring.

Michael Pollan say in his new book that:

One of the things that commends travel, art, nature, work, and certain drugs to us is the way these experiences, at their best, block every mental path forward and back, immersing us in the flow of a present that is literally wonderful—wonder being the by-product of precisely the kind of unencumbered first sight, or virginal noticing, to which the adult brain has closed itself. (It’s so inefficient!) Alas, most of the time I inhabit a near-future tense, my psychic thermostat set to a low simmer of anticipation and, too often, worry. The good thing is I’m seldom surprised.

The bad thing is I’m seldom surprised.

The Psychology

However, (thought experiment here) I do not think a non-mammalian construct can understand the intent of a human until they walk in a human body, so I will have to agree to Whitley’s assessment of one of the reasons why the visitors want to time-share a body with us.

But, and here is the experiment – could you imagine what it would be to pop into a human body without any referents and be inundated by a flood of literally ‘alien” sensation and feeling that was unknown to you??? Maybe they observe as they ride and some part of us explains…?

But Cliff High also has some ideas on this. His theory addresses the issue through the vagal nervous system in the human body:

The Vagus Nerve or, the 10nth Cranial Nerve is the longest nerve in the human body.

The vagus (CN X) nerve historically cited as the pneumogastric nerve, is the tenth cranial nerve or CN X, and interfaces with the parasympathetic control of the heart, lungs, and digestive tract. It is the longest nerve of the autonomic nervous system in the human body..[1] From <>

In trying to find the video that Cliff High did where he explained this, I got lost, but I did come across a video by the developer of the theory, Dr. Stephen Porges. His name for it is the Polyvagal System.

In this short 25 minute lecture video he explains that we have a trifold system that is ‘phylogenetically ordered’, meaning it has three parts developed over time for definitive purposes. The newest system additions being used first as a subconscious response to the environment (which he calls Neuroception: the body’s ability to respond to environmental cues bypassing a cognitive realization) such as facial cues and language and tonality to judge safety, danger – which engages a slightly older system and gives us fight or flight, to the very oldest system relating to a life threatening situation which can cause paralysis and feinting.

(This theory could possibly explain two very interesting facets of the abduction syndrome, that of immobility/paralysis and of the feeling of never wanting to look into the eyes of the captors, because that is one of the cues of the safety zone higher functions – mostly cued by facial relaxation or tension in and around the eyes and forehead.)

This creates two (maybe more) probability theories:

1: That these beings are a life form that is not mammalian ie: they don’t have a vagal nervous system therefore have a complete inability to understand the values, ethics, thinking and social structures that emotions and feelings engender. Imagine a species that didn’t understand our emotion that didn’t have a mammalian vagus nerve system – they would be unable to find meeting ground with us, much less understand our thoughts and short hand in our minds visual cues or our moral codes and ethics. Their understanding would have a completely different set of values depending on how they perceived reality and what their structures of organization were capable of realizing. ( a good reason they might want to ‘ride’ with-in us??)

2: They are a highly developed AI.

So: Out on a limb here by trying to put three different viewpoints together (and clumsily, I might add)

We have a few disingenuous races here, and many visitors – we have wounds to heal between the race that wanted union with us and the races that have come after us in many frequency forms – physical and not so physical. We need to remember what happened to us eons ago in order to know what is happening now and how it needs to be healed for the present and the future. And, IMO we have to realize that we were created for this type of union, we were made to be inhabited – at least the bodies that we are inhabiting now. We can learn to share, we can decide to be sovereign or we can abdicate and to whomever or whatever. But we can only make that decision if we know we have those options.

We are also stuck, for the moment, in a perceptual black hole. I am sure there are technologies out there that have already pulled us out of that hole, however, they are not open to the public. There are also people who have developed, using biological tech (their bodies) a way to communicate out of our current frequency cage, but those people are minimalized and laughed at in the general public.

IMO, Whitley, in good faith and with years of practice has connected to another set of frequencies and has opened dialogue with those that live there, however even he states in his book that many different beings come through; some are his friends, and some are not.

I think he is right about the urgent need for opening human perceptions, because right now we are all like the three blind men describing a different part of the elephant. He uses the sensing exercise from Gurdjieff to expand his senses, but there are other ways too and it boils down to ‘noticing’. Whether that noticing happens in the body, the mind or the emotions – it is noticing a difference in the now-in-the-moment homeostasis of you. If you are not paying attention, or don’t know what to notice it is impossible to perceive slight alterations on any of the above systems. The reason it works on people who have endured abuse is because they already have everything primed to duck, and once you learn that it is always on and always in the back ground and IMO it is powered by the Polyvagal System.

We experience fear when we encounter different frequencies out of our normal range – this is part of the above mechanism, sort of like an early warning system. The greater the difference the greater the fear. This knowledge is used as a tool to manipulate us. If those circuits are used we can be immobilized by fear and if the dickering in our brains goes to an even older deeper place, we can be paralyzed while fully cognizant. It is as instinctual as breathing because breathing is part of the vagal path. IMO It may take a bit of practice to learn it, how to control it and when to listen to it. Like learning a new language or new sport. Until we can get up to speed with it, we will unwillingly be controlled by it. Like riding a bike, you crash and try again until you are so skilled that you can let go of the handle bars gliding down the street if you wanted to.

IMO this could be hard, but not… and by that I mean that like any other thing we Intend to do we can learn this, we can pioneer this, we can McIver this, seriously. Let’s pull it out of superposition and make it a reality, dang – I sure want to talk to, experience, whoever they are, I mean really, all I want is a peek. IMO, it is the only way we are going to figure out who we really are.
