The question of whether we are alone in this grand universe, or whether there is other life, in the distant stars and planets, is one of the central questions in the story of what it is to live in this world. Every man and woman have at some time in their
lives asked that question. Many millions of people, at least some of the time, believe in a God and their belief is a central part of their lives. There is much dispute as to whether religious belief is legitimate or whether, as some scientists
have suggested, it is an unfounded notion. All of my life there have been stories, rumors and claims, made by people around the world, who believe in the existence of extraterrestrial life. In fact, when one studies literature and the anicent
cultures and religions of the world, we find that there have always been stories and accounts of strange beings who resemble the modern 'Extraterrestrial'. Many people have felt that extraordinary existential dread: that feeling that there may
be somebody out there, somewhere up above us; men and women who are different to us but we have no reason to think that they are here in friendship. At the most extreme end of the extraterrestrial accounts of 'The Other' are from the men and women
of the world who claim that an extraterrestrial presence not only subsists but that it has invaded their lives, their very homes; and that a cynical and highly intelligent group have abducted them from their warm and comfortable beds at night
and when they are returned they find the horrifying physical evidence and 'implant' artefacts which confirm their great fears: that the knightmares of having undergone forceful and invasive surgical procedures aboard ships of light are not dreams
or fantasies at all. Others believe that the government are complicit in these experiements under their secret extraterrestrial masters. Life in this world can become very mundane and very harsh and one may be lost in an abyss of mental and spiritual
isolation in some periods of our lives. Yet the vital spark which ignites our emotions and our imaginations exists in this world. The philosophical support for the existence of a God is trivial but important. If we do believe that there may be
a God, it is a small step to allow that there may also be other intelligent life in the universe. Images, stories, myth and legend of other races and creatures from beyond the stars pervade Western and Eastern culture. Here we open a door to the
open minded. To keep abreast of developments in the field and for the latest news join our society through the members section.
UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL PHENOMENA - JACQUE VALLEE
Jacque Fabrice Vallee is a very interesting man. He is a professional scientist who co-developed the computerized mapping of Mars for NASA. He was awarded the Jules Verne Prize for his science-fiction novel Le Sub-espace. He is also noted
for his defence of the legitimacy of the scientific exploration of UFO phenomena and he is associated with the extraterrestrial and interdimensional hypotheses. This is an important point, for there is an unfortunate current in the modern West
which seeks to assert that there is no philosophical or scientific support for mysteries or 'the world of the paranormal' and this is something which AOAS is here to contest. You should read his classic text Unidentified Aerial Phenomena: A Strategy for Research.
From his entry on Wikipedia: "In May 1955, Vallée first sighted an unidentified flying object over his Pontoise home. Six years later in 1961, while working on the staff of the French Space Committee, Vallée claims to have witnessed the destruction
of the tracking tapes of an unknown object orbiting the earth. The particular object was a retrograde satellite – that is, a satellite orbiting the earth in the opposite direction to the earth's rotation. At the time he observed this, there were
no rockets powerful enough to launch such a satellite, so the team was quite excited as they assumed that the Earth's gravity had captured a natural satellite (asteroid). He claims that an unnamed superior came and erased the tape. These events
contributed to Vallée's long-standing interest in the UFO phenomenon. In the mid-1960s, like many other UFO researchers, Vallée initially attempted to validate the popular Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (or ETH). UFO researcher Jerome Clark argues
that Vallée's first two UFO books were among the most scientifically sophisticated defenses of the ETH ever mounted. However, by 1969, Vallée's conclusions had changed, and he publicly stated that the ETH was too narrow and ignored too much data.
Vallée began exploring the commonalities between UFOs, cults, religious movements, demons, angels, ghosts, cryptid sightings, and psychic phenomena. Speculation about these potential links were first detailed in Vallée's third UFO book, Passport
to Magonia: From Folklore to Flying Saucers. As an alternative to the extraterrestrial visitation hypothesis, Vallée has suggested a multidimensional visitation hypothesis. This hypothesis represents an extension of the ETH where the alleged extraterrestrials
could be potentially from anywhere. The entities could be multidimensional beyond space-time, and thus could coexist with humans, yet remain undetected. Vallée's opposition to the popular ETH was not well received by prominent U.S. ufologists,
hence he was viewed as something of an outcast. Indeed, Vallée refers to himself as a "heretic among heretics" .... Vallée has contributed to the investigation of the Miracle at Fatima and Marian apparitions. His work has been used to support
the Fatima UFO Hypothesis. Vallée is one of the first people to speculate publicly about the possibility that the "solar dance" at Fatima was a UFO. The idea of UFOs was not unknown in 1917, but most of the people in attendance at the Fatima apparitions
would not have attributed the claimed phenomena there to UFOs, let alone to extraterrestrials. Vallée has also speculated about the possibility that other religious apparitions may have been the result of UFO activity including Our Lady of Lourdes
and the revelations to Joseph Smith. Vallée and other researchers have advocated further study of unusual phenomena in the academic community. They don't believe that this should be handled solely by theologians"
ART HISTORY: What is the place of the 'Alien' in the modern West? There are some extraordinary artefacts, whose very existence seems to contradict our beliefs. Below are what appear to be representations of flying crafts and high technology
about which we know nothing. These are sometimes known as OOPAS (out of place artefacts) and they recur throughout the world. Did the Sumerian's have access to flying craft? A UFO over Nurnberg?
In physical cosmology, the Copernican principle, is an alternative name of the mediocrity principle, or the principle of relativity, stating that humans (the Earth, or the Solar system) are not privileged observers of the universe. Named for Copernican
heliocentrism, it is a working assumption that arises from a modified cosmological extension of Copernicus's argument of a moving Earth. In some sense, it is equivalent to the mediocrity principle. The mediocrity principle is the philosophical
notion that "if an item is drawn at random from one of several sets or categories, it's likelier to come from the most numerous category than from any one of the less numerous categories". The principle has been taken to suggest that there
is nothing very unusual about the evolution of...READ MORE
THE DRAKE EQUATION

Cosmic pluralism, the plurality of worlds, or simply pluralism, describes the philosophical belief in numerous "worlds" in addition to Earth, which might harbor extraterrestrial life. Before the development of the heliocentric theory and a recognition
that the Sun is just one of many stars, the notion of pluralism was largely mythological and philosophical. Medieval Muslim writers like Fakhr al-Din al-Razi and Muhammad al-Baqir supported cosmic pluralism on the basis of
the Qur'an.With the scientific and Copernican revolutions, and later, during the Enlightenment, cosmic pluralism became a mainstream notion, supported by the likes of Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle in his 1686 work Entretiens sur la pluralité
des mondes. Pluralism was also ...READ MORE
Steven Macon Greer MD is the Founder of The Disclosure Project, The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and
The Orion Project. He claims to have seen an unidentified flying object at close range when he was about eight years old, which inspired his interest in ufology. From his entry on Wikipedia: "Greer founded the Center for the Study of Extra-Terrestrial
Intelligence (CSETI) in 1990 to create a diplomatic and research-based initiative to contact extraterrestrial civilizations. In 1993, he founded the Disclosure Project, a nonprofit research project, whose goal is to disclose to the public
the government's alleged knowledge of UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and advanced energy and propulsion systems. The Disclosure Project was founded in an effort to grant amnesty to government whistle-blowers willing to violate
their security oaths by sharing insider knowledge about UFOs. Greer says he gave a briefing to CIA director James Woolsey at a dinner party, although this was denied by director Woolsey and attendees. In October 1994, Greer appeared
in Larry King's TV special The UFO Coverup? In 1995, Greer worked as a physician at the department of emergency medicine at Caldwell Memorial Hospital, where he was chairman. In 1997, Greer, along with other members of CSETI, including
Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell, made a presentation at a background briefing for members of Congress. In 1998, Greer gave up his career as an emergency room physician in favor of the Disclosure Project. In May 2001, Greer held a press
conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. that featured 20 retired Air Force, Federal Aviation Administration and intelligence officers. According to a 2002 report in the Oregon Daily Emerald, Greer has gathered
120 hours of testimony from civilians and various government and military officials, including astronaut Gordon Cooper and a brigadier general, on the topic of UFOs .... In 2013, Greer co-produced Sirius, a documentary detailing his work and hypotheses
regarding extraterrestrial life, government cover-ups and close encounters of the fifth kind.  The film was directed by Amardeep Kaleka and narrated by Thomas Jane, and covers Greer's 2006 book Hidden Truth, Forbidden Knowledge. The movie
premiered on April 22, 2013, in Los Angeles, California, and features interviews from former government and military officials.  Sirius depicts a six-inch human skeleton known as the Atacama skeleton, and features images and a DNA test of
the skeleton. Genetic evidence showed that it was human, with genetic markers found in "indigenous women from the Chilean region of South America". The director of the center that did the analysis said, "It's an interesting medical mystery
of an unfortunate human with a series of birth defects that currently [...] the genetics of which are not obvious.""". In the opinion of AOAS Greer is an important authority and his websites are a very useful and enlightening resource
for anybody who wonders whether man is really alone.
In life, from time to time, we will meet interesting and wholly unconventional people. Sometimes the stories which we hear are difficult to believe. However, as a rule we should try to keep an open mind. After all, we are only men and women and this world
certainly wasn't built by us. Basiago brings a lot of new material to the table. We recommend that you dive head first into his world. The following text is taken directly from the introduction on the homepage of his Project Pegasus website: 'Andrew
D. Basiago, J.D., M.C.R.P. (Dist), M.Phil. (Cantab), 50, the team leader of Project Pegasus and the founder and president of MARS, is an American lawyer, writer, chrononaut, and 21st century visionary. Andy served in Project Pegasus at the dawn
of the Time-Space Age and was one of humanity’s early Mars explorers. He is a prominent figure in the Truth Movement leading a campaign to lobby the US government to disclose such truths as the fact that the US has achieved “quantum access” to
past and future events and has used time travel to place a secret US presence on Mars. Andy has been identified as the first of two “planetary-level whistle blowers” predicted by the Web Bot, which analyzes the content of the World Wide Web to
discern global trends. His Truth Campaign about time travel and life on Mars is based on direct, personal experience serving on two US defense projects. In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, Andy was a child participant in Project Pegasus, which
was the US time-space exploration program at the time of the emergence of time travel in the US defense-technical community. He was called back into government service in the early 1980’s, when he made numerous visits to Mars after being tapped
to join the CIA’s Mars “jump room” program. For over a decade, Andy has investigated his secret project experiences on a quest to prove them and communicate them to others. Soon, he will publish a tell-all book that will reveal the true story
of his awe-inspiring and terrifying experiences time traveling for the US government. Andrew D. Basiago was born on September 18, 1961 in Morristown, New Jersey, the youngest of five children, and grew up in Northern New Jersey and Southern California.
Andy was identified in early childhood as an “Indigo” child with special abilities, including the ability to use his mind to levitate small objects and to perform telepathy by reading the minds of others. A past member of Mensa, the high IQ society,
he holds five degrees, including a BA in History from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and a Master of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge. While an undergraduate at UCLA, Andy studied American history during the day
while attending a night school in strategic intelligence administered by the Naval Postgraduate School. Upon graduating from UCLA in 1984, he became a journalist and protégé of editor Norman Cousins of the Saturday Review, who once compared him
to Robert M. Hutchins and nominated him to be the editor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Andy was inspired by a meeting with futurist Buckminster Fuller in 1981 to pursue a career in environmental affairs .... READ MORE.
The lore and legends of the Moon are dealt with by the Rev. Timothy Harley in his 1885 classic text Moon Law. In fact writers in all times have
contemplated the Moon. Some of the great religions of the world revere it and there are many legends, ancient and modern, of visitors to and from the Moon. Is there an alien species, possessed of a high technology, encamped within a highly complex
secret military base located on the body of the Moon? Well it may sound crazy to you but this has long been suggested and there have been many people who claim to have seen evidence of such a site. The way that technology is advancing AOAS remark
that their might not be a military base there now but that there probably will be in the future. AOAS also say that Bill Lear is one hell of a guy. A highly experienced US aviator and former test pilot with a deep interest in lunar and spatial
events and anomalies. From the Living Moon website: 'The Living Moon Exposes Endymion Lunar Operations Command Post. In a freak coincidence. At 6:30 am October 7, 2009, Bill Penn of California was watching the moon through his reflector
and saw a city in full view in Endymion. He grabbed a pen and paper and started sketching what he could see. A week or so later Bill brought the drawings to Las Vegas and we compared them with the moon photos shot by Mike Deegan from the UK. We
then had Allan Sturm of lunomaly.com make transition video between Mike Deegans photo and Bill Penns sketch of what he saw drawn directly on Mike’s photo..We know that most of the near side of the moon is hidden by holographic or other kinds of
camouflage measures. Somehow at 5:30 am on October 7 the camouflage became inoperable or was turned off for a short time giving us a view of what is really up there. ...'. It is interesting to note that the theme of objects being hidden in sight
by the use of a unacknowledged holographically based 'cloaking' technology is something that has been written about for many years and claims of its use have appeared, for example, on David Icke's website on several occasions. In these days, in
the current of extra terrestrial vigilance and space science, The Living Moon website is a great source for news and reports concerning sightings and moon anomolies. The attitude which Lear has is very much the same attitude that the AOAS
Group has: We are not here to record dull and lifeless academic work. We are here because we have an open mind and we know that there are wonders in this world. From Lear we quote 'Before proceeding to our presentation it is imperative
that you forget all preconceived notions of what you think you know. Enter here with an open mind and be prepared to be amazed. We do not expect all that enter this portal to be convinced that everything we say is true, but take a moment to examine
the evidence we provide, and think on it for a spell. We guarantee that you will never look at the old black and white NASA moon the same way again ...'. Indeed the world is a place of endless mystery and the Living Moon website is a fascinating
and stimulating resource when you are contemplating the possibility or reality that there exists other life in the universe.

THE COMMUNION LETTERS by Whitley Strieber
Another text following the success of Strieber's important Communion Books. Anne and Whitley Strieber's shattering all-time classic on the close encounter experience. Reading these letters, chosen by Anne Strieber from the thousands they received

David Wilcock is a professional lecturer, filmmaker and researcher of ancient civilizations, consciousness science, and new paradigms of matter and energy. His upcoming Hollywood film CONVERGENCE seeks to unveil proof that all life on Earth is united
in a field of consciousness, which affects our minds in fascinating ways. AOAS remark that this concept is linked to a lot of other concepts including the work of the English mathematician Rupert Sheldrake on morphic resonance.
AOAS also remark that they find Wilcock to be intellectually stimulating. He impresses one with a deep sense of the connection between one's life and mind and a wider universe in which we are embraced. He has spoken of his interest in the great
mystery of human life and of the possibility of man not being alone in the world. Another aspect of his character is a remarkable openness to new ideas and to spiritual matters. Wilcock believes in the concept of metempsychosis, or reincarnation.
He explores the possibility that he himself may be a reincarnation of 'the sleeping prophet' Edgar Cacy in a book which he co-authored. There is arguably a very strong physical resemblance between these two men. Wilcock is important in the discourse
on extraterrestrial life because of his very broad and expansive vision of the nature of life and space. He has been interviewed many times on radio and other talk shows and his contributions to these productions are a source of stimulation to
the enquiring mind. David Wilcock is a popular figure in the New Age Movement. He exists, we say, in the twilight places of that which subsists beyond the mundane world. A paranormal experient, David has a mind which is truly open and AOAS say
that this is a great example for others. He is interested in the cocepts of 'soul growth', 'Ascension' and the 'evolution of consciousness'. Perhaps Wilcock's greatest gift is as a theoretician. He has formulated a number of models as a way of
interpreting and understanding qualities like matter and energy and indeed the quality of 'peace'. He believes that all life on Earth is united in a Field of Consciousness, which, he says, affects our minds in interesting ways. Wilcock engages
with the persons and personalities of mysteries and the paranormal. He believes that he may in fact be a reincarnation of the 'sleeping Prophet' Edgar Cayce and has coauthored a book on the subject. His website
Divine Cosmos is a very rich site for interesting and innovative articles in the field of the New Age. He now has a weekly TV Show on Gaiam TV. If you are looking for
fresh and innovative work in the field of mysteries and spirituality then AOAS heartily recommend Divine Cosmos as a very important source. He also hosts a number of free ebooks including: The Shift of Ages, The Science of Oneness, The Divine
Cosmos, The Law of One Study Guide, Wanderer Awakening, The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce and The End of Our Century. All in all AOAS say that David Wilcock is an interesting and worthy man, with wisdom and goodness and is therefore an important
Signs of Abduction. Many people across the world have claimed to have been abducted by strange beings. These beings are either from another dimension, or another galaxy. For all we know they could even be from this galaxy in a location
we may or may not have discovered yet. Thanks to government agencies, and space organizations that think we can't handle the truth.
Darkside of The MoonIn the past, I have talked about the strangest things about our moon. Its very strange indeed. We know for a fact that the Moon is hollow. It rings like a bell. When struck by a lunar module, the Moon was said to have
rang for 8+ hours.
The Nazca LinesThe Nazca lines are in the Nazca Desert in Peru. The one pictured above is my favorite looking one. These figures have been carved into the ground to be obviously seen from above. An ancient civilization of people developed
these glyphs. The purpose is still unknown. Even the locals that live in the Nazca area have no idea what these things were used for, or if they had a grand purpose at all.
KATIE PERRY AN ALIEN?I know there are probably Katy Perry fans out there that are going to be furious about this post. Public records show that Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (her real name) was born in Santa Barbara California. Her parents
were actually Christian pastors. She even began her career making a gospel album, however, it was unsuccessful. An interesting note is that 400 miles north of Santa Barbara, is where the crazy rituals at Bohemian Grove have taken place for
close to 150 years. It is rumored that human sacrifices go on in the Bohemian Club.
Secret TR-3BThe TR-3B is a secret government spacecraft that has been flying in our skies since 1994. You can do your own research on this craft, however because it is a classified project you may not find much on this. I have done lots
of digging, and I think it is a strong possibility that this craft actually exists. It is indeed powered by an onboard nuclear reactor.
Stargate UniverseThe original movie "Stargate" first came out in the year 1994. This movie was an instant classic. It spun off into a television series called Stargate SG-1. This is one of the most successful science fiction shows of
all time, even surpassing X-files. Many people who love science fiction, like myself, can appreciate the fact that all of the scientific theories and laws of physics still hold true in the stargate universe.
New Alien Autopsy PhotoThe 1947 Roswell UFO incident is the godfather of alien spaceship stories and conspiracy theories in more ways than one. It’s generally regarded as the first major, heavily-publicized, alleged UFO crash encounter
and, to paraphrase a famous quote from one of the Godfather movies: when you think it’s over, it keeps pulling you back in.
“Without a doubt,” says Julio Zurbirgk, a cattle rancher in General San Martin, a city just northwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Make that a very frustrated cattle rancher who, like others in Argentina, is tired, frustrated and fearful after
over 20 years of mysterious cattle mutilations with no explanations or support from the government of one of the world’s leading beef-producing nations.
Anecdotal EvidenceWhat is the reality — if any exists at all — behind the UFO phenomenon? This question has been asked for decades already, and still we collectively don’t seem to have any real answers that help instruct us as to whatever
“reality” may constitute serious, tangible data on UFOs. Way back in 1955, Edward Ruppelt, the first director of the USAF’s Project Bluebook, wrote that, “I wouldn’t want to hazard a guess as to what the final outcome of the UFO investigation
will be, but I am sure that within a few years there will be a proven answer.”
