Any attempt to introduce the subject of telepathic channeling to individuals with little or no background in this general area will, I am sure, result in confusion. Therefore, if the reader is lacking in this area he may expect to be somewhat confused by the material presented.
This book was originally intended to be disseminated only to those individuals intimately familiar with “flying saucer” research. Recent developments, however, have indicated that quite soon, interest may be aroused in many who have remained for many years in total ignorance of this subject. I am, therefore, making an attempt to give a brief background of “flying saucer” research. I realize that any attempt of this nature can only hope to point out to the interested novice sources of additional information.
To begin, let us consider the attitudes of two well-known scientists, since, of course, their work communicates most acceptably with orthodox thinking. Prof. Donald H. Menzel of Harvard University has been able to “prove” in his latest book that the entire flying saucer phenomena are due to explainable occurrences of a strictly terrestrial source. Aimé Michel, a renowned French scientist, has been able to “prove” beyond reasonable doubt that these elusive saucers are space craft from other planets.
I would recommend that the works of both of these highly orthodox researchers be read by anyone interested in this field. Since I long ago gave up what would be called orthodox techniques as being relatively fruitless in this unique area, the material which I present may be quite confusing to any but the “hardened” researcher in this most exasperating field.
There are, of course, many other researchers using “orthodox” techniques, such as the U. S. Air Force and NICAP in Washington, D. C. The most recent official attitude of the Air Force is that “saucers don’t exist.” The attitude of NICAP is quite the opposite. There is also a great number of people who claim contact with “the space people.” I find it quite difficult to dismiss the works of Dr. George Hunt Williamson and the others who have endeavored to present the results of their contacts in as “scientifically” an accepted manner as possible. I would definitely recommend Williamson’s “THE SAUCERS SPEAK” as the best source for an explanation of how the transition was made from radio contacts to telepathic channeling. This is, of course, assuming that you get past Menzel’s book “proving” the non-existence of what is called “the flying saucer.”
From the point of view of those limited to the five physical senses, “proof” must always communicate with these senses. It will therefore be quite obvious to this group that my presentation offers no proof at all. In fact, my objective has nothing to do with what is popularly called proof. I am simply attempting to make available to interested persons one more piece of data.
I have in no way modified the data presented. For this reason it may seem to those who would wish to get directly at the “meat” of the text a bit cumbersome. I feel, however, that the editing of any single communication would detract from the value of the material presented, and possibly lead to erroneous conclusions. For this reason the communications are printed exactly as received. Group meetings were held approximately once weekly and the information received through the mechanism of telepathic channeling was recorded on tape. The material in the text is simply selected transcriptions of the recorded material.
I have selected messages dealing primarily with the development of the channels for the first half of the text. It is an almost impossible task to explain what happens to the channel during his training program. Although it is necessary that the individual volunteer to undergo the training or conditioning, it is not necessary for him to in any way believe in or have faith in the reality of the so- called space contact. Many vocal channels who are now delivering rapid and coherent messages were quite skeptical and volunteered at least partially due to curiosity. In every case the messages are delivered without a trace of discontinuity in thought or normal lack of expression. Since most of the people acting as channels are totally untrained in public speaking, this is a minor miracle in itself. I would like to emphasize the fact that every word captured by the tape recorder is transcribed without the slightest modification. Even the orthodox researcher may have difficulty in “explaining” the perfect continuity even though a single message may be transmitted through several individuals of widely varied backgrounds. It is also interesting to note that in some instances the individual channeling the latter part of a message was not present during the reception of the first section and was contacted almost immediately upon entering the building.
The second half of the text will deal primarily with the general philosophy and some of the concepts transmitted by what we are calling “the space people.” I am quite sure that at least some of this will be beyond the understanding of most of those who read this work as it is with those involved with the communication. It seems that the objective of these “space people” is to increase this understanding, regardless of how long it takes, of those who will put forth the effort.
I am including the first half of a message to a new group of interested people in this Introduction, since I do not wish to present any conclusions of my own. I will in no way attempt to influence the conclusions of the reader other than to vouch for the accuracy and honesty involved in recording the data just as it was received.

LET US CONTINUE OUR MEDITATION FOR A FEW MOMENTS LONGER, MY FRIENDS. RELAX. KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN THE LIGHT OF OUR INFINITE CREATOR, FATHER OF US ALL. RELAX, MY FRIENDS. KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE TRUE CREATION, CREATED IN LOVE, PEACE AND HARMONY BY A PERFECT CREATOR. I AM LOVE, I AM PEACE, I AM HARMONY. I AM A PERFECT PART OF THE PERFECT CREATION, CREATED IN LOVE. KNOW THIS, MY FRIENDS; KNOW THAT THIS IS TRUE: YOU ARE THE TRUE CREATION.
I am Hatonn, I greet you my friends in the love and light of our Infinite Creator. I consider it a privilege to be able to speak with you this evening. As there are several new people here this evening, I should like to speak to them. If our friends who have heard what I am about to say before, please bear with me. I and my brothers who are visiting your planet at this time are not strangers to this planet. Our people have had the planet Earth under surveillance for a long, long time. And we are here at this time to render a service to the people of Earth.
I and my brothers are here to attempt to teach love and understanding. This may seem strange to most of you, however the planet Earth has had many, many years, many generations, many centuries in which to learn love and understanding. I am quite sure there are many who are seeking love and understanding, a new way of life because they have started to think for themselves. They know deep within their very beings that the way that the people of earth are living at the present, they know there is much to be desired than this way of life
We are here through guidance and suggestion to bring truth as we understand it to your peoples at this particular time. It is now most important that the people of Earth learn truth. Shall we say in the Father’s plan or scheme of things, if you wish to put it that way, a people has a period of time to develop and grow. If this is not accomplished in a certain length of time ...
I will attempt to continue this communication, speaking through this instrument. I am very sorry for the delay but we are not perfect and our methods of communication are not perfect.
Sometimes we also have unexpected difficulties. I was saying before the interruption that people are put on a planet such as this one for a period of time and given an opportunity to learn and grow spiritually. After a certain length of time it is necessary that those who have learned these lessons, those who are ready for a higher way of life, be given an opportunity to graduate into a higher class, so to speak.
This is what soon is to happen on the planet Earth. This does not mean that those who have not qualified through their own efforts will suffer or have great hardships as some of your teachings have said. It simply means that they will have to wait. They will have to wait through another period of learning similar to the one which has taken place in the history of your planet. I should add that this period of learning of which I speak—or cycle—I would prefer to call it a cycle, commenced quite a while before your recorded history. At any rate, this cycle is soon to terminate. This is what the many references to a new world, a new kingdom of heaven and similar references such as your holy works have referred to—not the end of the world, my friends, but the end of an age, and the beginning of a wonderful new age. An age of such beauty and grandeur that you could not begin to comprehend it with your present understanding.
