A major question which arises when considering the mind-bending maneuvers of UFOs: how can the UFO occupants survive the abrupt stops, right angle turns, intense G-forces and speeds which accelerate faster than the human eye can follow?
UFO beings probably have warp ability when traveling between star systems, thus their ship is not actually going the speed of light but is in a “bubble” which is going the speed of light – or faster – with the space/time continuum being folded ahead of the ship, and elongated out behind the ship.
Or, they may have other highly advanced forms of travel such as wormholes and star-gates; of course, wormholes can be defined as oddly warped space so no doubt, methods of propulsion incorporate various concepts of which we can only dream.
Something to also keep in mind is that radiation in space is formidable and makes it seem impossible for humans to travel in deep space. How do UFO occupants overcome this obstacle?
At any rate, the UFOs we spot are mostly in Earth’s atmosphere, and they often do all sorts of impossible maneuvers. How do the UFO occupants survive abrupt stops and right angle turns at super-fast speed within the atmosphere? Their ships may have a protective cocoon while the outer hull absorbs or nullifies gravity or there is the possibility that all the craft we see are un-manned.
However, there is a third possibility: What if the UFO occupants are energy beings? Thus they can travel in deep space and not die from intense radiation and they can survive extreme maneuvers in Earth’s atmosphere. Some abductions also seem to point to the UFO beings as energy forms, or at least, not as they present themselves to the abducted human.
Our human folk tradition features shape-shifters just as it tells of incredible pyramids, holy temples and stellar observatories made of huge stone monoliths, giant stone statues and many other indicators in almost every culture on the planet that our ancestors interacted with ancient astronauts. Yet, the concept of “shape-shifters” is ignored, or placed into the category of our ancestors’ imagination, or assigned a very malignant, evil persona.
I feel we have not fully considered energy beings as part of the UFO phenomenon, both now and in the ancient past, and we have fallen into the misconception that shape shifting energy beings are evil. Writings such as David Icke’s say that “shape-shifters” have accounted for nearly all the negativity in human history and in doing so, give them nearly unlimited power. Apparently they are solid beings when they appear as a human leader; in fact, I would question if an energy being is ever “solid and organic” if you touch him or her.
I believe that an energy being would look “organic and solid” just like a hologram might, but would not be organic, solid material. Perhaps energy beings can assume any appearance, from Abraham Lincoln to Michael Jackson, but it might also be that they are usually not that specific, and appear as “humanoid” in the strange way that some abductees report their captors appear.
I feel we need to begin by dispelling the idea that shape-shifting energy beings are inherently negative beings. In fact, evolution indicates that as intelligence grows, the organic body becomes less burly, muscled, and cumbersome. In a few million years, a species might completely outgrow the need for an organic body and be the embodiment of their intelligence; their consciousness would sustain them as living beings.
This is of course a science fiction concept but ancient human folklore tells of many shape shifting energy beings, so let’s take a look at some of them. Yes, most are bad guys in folklore but we have to keep in mind how frightening it is to a human being to encounter non-corporeal intelligence (intelligence made of pure energy).
Our fear keeps our folk lore vibrant, even the Bible is full of fear, beginning with the wrath of God. Folk tales become exaggerated throughout the millennia, and so it is difficult to know what the original interaction might have been with the fearful humans and the following energy beings:
The púca is a legendary creature of Celtic folklore, most notably in Ireland, the West of Scotland, and Wales. The púca is a mythological fairy and ultimate shapeshifter. The creatures are capable of assuming a variety of terrifying forms, including a horse, rabbit, goat, goblin, or dog. No matter what shape the púca takes, its fur is always dark. They are most commonly seen as a black horse with a flowing mane and luminescent orange eyes.
Púcas have the power to use human speech and although they are known for giving good advice, they also enjoy confusing and terrifying humans. Púcas have a fondness for riddles and are sociable creatures. They love to gather and play pranks on unsuspecting people and children. In many regions of the world the púca is seen as a creature of the mountains and hills. They are incredibly respected and if treated nicely will help humans. Might pucas be some form of energy being from “elsewhere”?
While I lived in Ireland, I saw a huge black – something – dog? Run into the Castle Morris Forest which was right across the field from my cottage. I felt it was strange and not a dog, but I only had a quick glance, alas. That same forest is said by local people to a tradition of fairy encounters and ghosts. I photographed my “flying light-form” near Castle Morris Forest.
Celt mythology also has hero shape-shifters, from Cuculhain to Taliesin, who appeared as human, died as human, and yet—were said to be shape-shifters.
The next shape-shifter tradition is in North America: The Wendigo is a creature appearing in the mythology of the Algonquian people. Descriptions of the Wendigo vary across culture, but they are generally described as a large alien-like canine beast. Wendigos are strongly associated with the winter, the north, and coldness. Native American cultures have many references to sky people and shape-shifters, good and bad.
The Leshy is a male woodland spirit in Slavic mythology believed to protect wild animals and the forests. They usually appear as tall men, but have the ability to change size and shape-shift into any form, animal or plant. Might these “tall men” be the alien “Tall Whites?”
Leshies have beards made of living grass and vines, and are often depicted with a tail, hooves, and horns. The Leshy has pale white skin and dark green eyes. They are the lords of the forest and hold close bonds with gray wolves, bears, and all animal life. Leshies can also imitate human voices and often times lure lost wanderers to their caves. They aren’t always evil, but enjoy misguiding humans and kidnapping young women.
Next we go to Japan: In Japanese folklore the Kitsune is an intelligent and magical being. The creature’s strength increases with age, wisdom, and life experience. Kitsune is a Japanese fox. They have the ability to assume human form and are great tricksters. The creatures are noted for having as many as nine tails. A kitsune may take human form when it reaches a certain age, usually 100 years. They prefer to assume the shape of a beautiful woman, young girl, or elderly man.
The creatures have the ability to clone the appearance of an individual. Kitsune have a fear and hatred of dogs. They can willingly manifest themselves in people’s dreams and create illusions so elaborate that they are perceived as reality. The kitsune can fly, become invisible, and often times generate fire or lightning. In some regions of the world the creatures can bend time, space, and drive people mad.
There are all sorts of hints here which might connect to modern UFO encounters. For one thing, our dogs often react to UFO sightings and the Kitsune hate dogs (of course they do manifest as foxes). Also, UFOs seem to be connected sometimes to lightning.
Berserkers were a group of Norse warriors. They are human, but in battle entered into a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, and transformed into wolves, bears, and wild bulls. This enabled the men to fight more effectively. Their name would give rise to the English word “berserk”.
Berserkers were said to wear the pelts of bears and wolves as they entered battle and could make the full transformation as they felt necessary. They are characterized as having bloodshot eyes, incredible strength, and endurance. Similar behavior is described in the Iliad, in which warriors are possessed by Gods and given the power to exhibit superhuman abilities.
Our global tour of energy beings who might have been immortalized in human folk-lore along with their tangible footprints from Stonehenge to The Great Pyramid, has to include the currently popular lycanthropes. This folk-tradition originated in Europe, but many accounts are found all over the ancient world. These are the werewolves who transform at the full moon. Our modern search for Sasquatch and Bigfoot might be a search for an alien who is similar to the lycanthrope.
Also currently very popular are vampires, legendary creatures said to feed on the blood of humans and animals. These energy beings appear in cultures around the world and some research indicates that throughout human history, such beings have been quite real. They are shapeshifters and can take many forms, predominantly bats or humans. Some believe that instead of feeding on blood, vampires feed on life-energy itself.
No, I am not saying that vampires are flying UFOs! I am saying that the traditions which tell of the existence of energy beings are world-wide, and that there might be some basis of truth in them which MIGHT connect to current UFO occupants if they are energy beings.
Of course this is along the line of Jacques Valle’s “Passport to Magonia,” that UFO occupants have appeared throughout human history, whether as elves, fairies, demons, or angels. Some people do feel this is the key to the UFO answer. I feel it is part of the puzzle, but not the entire picture.
Our ancient astronaut curiosity should extend past the ancient relics and edifices and begin to consider that our ancestor’s reports of energy beings might be connected to current UFO occupants, just as the Nazca Lines might be connected to UFOs occupants.
To conclude on our energy being tour from ancient times, there are the Selkies. They are found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish mythology. They have the ability to transform themselves from seal to human form. Selkies are able to shapeshift by shedding their seal skin, a risky endeavor because they must reapply the same skin in order to return to seal form. Stories surrounding these creatures are usually romantic tragedies.
They are allowed to make contact with humans for only a short amount of time before they must return to the sea. In many cases humans have unknowingly fallen in love with selkies. Other times, humans have hidden the skin of the selkie, thus preventing it from returning to seal form.
Male selkies are very handsome in their human form, and have great seduction powers over women. If a man finds and steals a female selkie’s skin then she will be under his control and is often times forced to become his wife. The creatures have been known to lure humans into the sea, by creating illusions and a false sense of reality.
Finally, we arrive at angels: whether Christian angels or generic angels, accounts of these beautiful energy beings are world-wide throughout the millennia. They are good Samaritans to a human in trouble, they perform healing and miracles. Of course new age beliefs have meshed angels and UFO occupants perhaps too much, but the fact remains, here is a folklore tradition supported by many believable reports, even proof, of benign, highly intelligent energy beings.
Maybe UFO occupants are not angelic or demonic. Maybe they are in between, maybe some are good, and some are not-so-good, but, energy beings interacting with humans? No wonder things get exaggerated! However, if, for instance, some UFOs are plasma, only energy life-forms could survive inside the plasma craft. There are many other convincing arguments to offer evidence that some UFO occupants are pure energy.
So can’t they just zoom through space without a ship as an “energy cloud?” Perhaps some do but space/time is a brutal milieu, it seems, so maybe even singular energy forms need protection – need a ship. Also, it might be a wonderful adventure to gather some comrades and becomes a starship crew.
Do energy beings ever die? This is too big a question to even guess about!
A lot of UFO lore is currently creating the same negative myths about shape-shifters as our ancestors did. Certainly UFO research can do better! We have to, because we might be about to come face to face with them – again. This time, we should have evolved a bit!
Movies and television usually portray shape-shifters as evil. TV’s Supernatural had a really bad wendingo, for instance. However, nearly every teenage girl in the world is in love with vampires, so perhaps energy beings are being considered a bit more kindly.
I feel that what we do need to consider is that energy beings might be real, and just might be flying overhead!
