Okay. I know this is going to sound wacko, but I want to say that I am skeptical and simply am searching for a logical answer. Here is what happened to me in 1987. I went to a Spiritual Science Conference of about eleven people. I was there, mainly, because I was skeptical and drove from the east coast to Hot Springs Arkansas because of curiosity. The week was spent learning about all kinds of voodoo, The keys of Enoch; crystal power; channelling, and such stuff. We also learned a few interesting things: for instance, it was the first time I learned about abundant, free energy patents that never made it through to production. anyway, the culmination of the event was that all of us went into the attic of a Victorian House in which a large Tesla Coil was continually running, along with some music. We were to sit in a circle and then close our eyes. No opening of eyes was permitted. The guy in charge was going to "channel." I, of course, opened my eyes, and looked around the room at everyone else who had their eyes closed. From the leader of this conference, I saw emerge a ghostlike form. It appeared to emerge from his chest. From my friend, a female, I only saw the hazy grey around her chest. In him, though, it became a form, that of a typical "grey" alien. It looked directly at me and I felt negative energy directed toward me. It was just then the ghostlike form retreated into the man's body and the man himself said, Amen and amen, ending the event. He would not talk to me about it. I know, strange. But I was most concerned about the female who was living in this house, as the caretaker and basically the slave of these two new age celebrities. what I learned is that hallucinations can and often do occur if one is near a strong magnetic field. I managed to ask a simple question to Dr. Nick Begich on Coast to Coast AM and he said yes, it was possible to hallucinate near the tesla coil. He told me to look up Persinger on the net. I was wondering if any of you can come up with an explanation (other than I am a complete nut because I am not) I have never seen anything like this, nor heard of anyone seeing anything like this. Certainly, there are accounts of people seeing aliens, ufos, and ghosts. But this was some kind of mix of alien emerging from a human. what bothers me is that very shortly after this happened, this celebrity new age moneymaker renounced everything he had ever written or taught and told everyone to simply go back to the Bible. Something he had encountered had frightened him very badly. I have over the years, asked this question to many forums, and have not gotten an answer or an answer that made any logical sense. Thank you in advance.
