This Week's Episode: Gene and Randall present Suzanne Hansen, Founding Director of UFOCUS NZ. She has lectured nationally and internationally about New Zealand UFO sightings plus her own alien contact encounters and interaction experiences, as well as related spiritual and metaphysical topics. She has also been featured in internet interviews, radio, TV, and newspaper/magazine interviews, and taken part in a number of international UFO documentaries. This interview focuses on both sightings and alien encounters, and whether there is some sort of plan afoot by extraterrestrial visitors to present a message of peace and brotherhood to the thousands of humans who have allegedly been taken aboard their spacecraft.

The Alien Agenda
By Gene Steinberg

When someone sees a possible UFO, the experience may seem little different from watching an airplane go by. Unless it’s some sort of amorphous light, it does seem to be a real, physical metallic craft.

It isn’t hard to debate what it all means, whether people are just misidentifying conventional objects or phenomena, making it all up, or seeing a possible spaceship from another planet. A skeptic may point to the first two, whereas those willing to accept the reality of the phenomenon are apt to point to the latter as the possible solution.

While extraterrestrial hypothesis is the common solution, when the UFO appears to come just a little too close for comfort, particularly when alien entities are involved, the debate becomes far more contentious.

Not long after the first flying saucers appeared in the modern era, some claimed to have met up with the pilots. But it wasn’t the first time someone or something emerged from such a craft. Certainly the airships from the late 19th century represented examples of beings using a far more primitive technology, something not far removed from what inventors were developing at the time.

Over the last seven decades or so, meetings with alien visitors took on multiple memes. George Adamski exemplified the first, with his claim of meeting a handsome humanoid alien in the California desert in 1952. For this column, I won’t repeat the debate over whether his claims were true or not. Although some people resurrect them from time to time, it’s clear to me that it was exposed early on.

I grant it’s possible Adamski had some sort of unworldly experience that he couched in sci-fi terms to make it appear more credible. Or perhaps he just wanted a vehicle to present his own views about peace and brotherhood. If it came from a relative nobody, who’d believe it? But if such pronouncements emerged from advanced god-like travelers from other planets, at least some people would take it seriously.

But it doesn’t take contacts with aliens to want an end to war, famine, and, nowadays, a solution to global warning. Why can’t we all just get along? If I say it, and I have, I doubt many people care, even though I hope I have a little influence as a result of hosting The Paracast.

Of course, not all of the aliens one may encounter appear to be friendly. I hardly think that the so-called grays who kidnap people driving on lonely country roads, or from their bedrooms, have good intentions. Worse, they will often give their victims painful physical examinations. Even when they appear to convey a friendly intent, how does that explain the trauma that often accompanies such experiences?

Some abduction researchers claim that millions of Earthlings have been abducted over the years. Is there a purpose? Can it all involve genetic testing, or is something else, something perhaps more sinister afoot? Is it possible that ET is creating a hybrid race that’s part alien/part-human to silently conquer us without firing a shot? What about brainwashing people to, when the time is right, act on the alien agenda?

What is the alien agenda anyway?

Does it involve little more than evangelizing a message of peace and brotherhood? If that’s the case, why do most contacts involve relative unknowns. Sure, an entertainment figure, such as a rock star, might claim to have been abducted. Sammy Hagar, a former Van Halen lead singer, is one such claimant. But why believe him anyway? After all, the common perception is that musicians are apt to suffer from substance abuse, so maybe Hagar got himself in too deep and imagined the experience.

Even if he is telling the truth, not too many will take him seriously. The same is true for other entertainers. Even if the experiencer appears to be a solid citizen, with a steady job and a family, does that prevent a possible mental breakdown? Once again, such a person might gain a degree of notoriety by writing a book, lecturing or appearing on television.

Abductee Travis Walton has the benefit of having his encounter featured in a motion picture. He is among the better-known experiencers. When we interviewed him on The Paracast, he came across as sincere, that whatever happened to him, he was telling the truth as he knew it.

The question is, of course, just what the truth really is.

The same may be said for Calvin Parker, who was just 19 when he and Charles Hickson confronted the unknown in Pascagoula, Mississippi in 1973. Although he stayed out of the public limelight in recent years, Parker has reemerged as the author of a book recounting his experience.

Again, we are dealing with a sincere person who clearly believes what he is telling us.

But Walton and Parker apparently didn’t meet up with aliens that are here to present some sort of peaceful message to mankind. Walton only has spotty memories of his encounter, and the visitors that kidnapped Parker didn’t seem to be focused on turning him into some sort of evangelist for peace and justice.

Indeed, serious UFO researchers are more apt to believe these two, and others with similar experiences, than those recounting deep conversations with ET. The latter are often assumed to be cranks or fakers.

At the same time, there are many out there undergoing similar experiences. UFO investigator Suzanne Hansen, from New Zealand, originally concentrated on the traditional UFO sightings before revealing she was a lifelong experiencer.

As she explained on the December 2nd edition of The Paracast and After The Paracast, she believes that the race of aliens she has encountered want to indoctrinate thousands upon thousands of humans to effect positive change.

It’s certainly a worthy goal, though again I wonder why the aliens aren’t focusing on people with genuine influence. Even then, why believe ET anyway? Because they are more advanced than us? That shouldn’t mean they are incapable of deception. Yet Hansen and others with similar encounters are apt to believe the messages without question. After all, they are positive goals that any decent human should accept.

Even if the beings she encountered are aliens, we have no idea of their real motives. They could just as well be messing with us, or covering up a more sinister agenda.

Is there an alien agenda? And even if ET states their goals, why should we accept it at face value? But if it’s meant as deception, just what is really going on here? Does it really involve visitors from another planet, even if that’s what they claim to be?

So many questions, so few answers.
