"Do We Have Visitors From the Unknown"
(A Scholarly Study of Extraterrestrial Intrusions)
a TRIAD RESEARCH CONFERENCE
in Tampa, Florida
* * * * * * * *
This past weekend (Feb. 19-20) I attended the Triad Research
Conference Foundation symposium at the Holiday Inn, Clearwater
Beach Surfside Hotel. Triad is defined as the union of three--
which describes the partnership among Denise Carpenter, Susan
Bedell, and the Bigelow Foundation. The Tampa Conference in-
cluded a Pulizter Prize-winning psychiatrist from Harvard Med-
ical School, an Emmy Award-winning television journalist, a
psychiatric hypnotherapist, a social analyst, a respected
hypnotherapist from Los Angeles, an award-winning journalist
who investigated Russian cases, and a veteran UFO researcher.
Optional events included workshops for mental health profes-
sionals on Saturday morning led by John Carpenter and Dr. John
Mack, focusing on diagnostics, symptomology, therapeutic stra-
tegies, and coping ideas.
Keeping notes turned out to be a good idea as the various speak-
ers presented compelling fresh information. Item: A television
crew from HARDCOPY video-taped the proceedings and this writer
understood the show is to be aired in the near future. I'll be
contacting Pinellas/Manatee/Hillsborough Counties MUFON Section
Director Eugene Brown and post a date for the broadcast when it
The first presentation was by John Carpenter, one of the leading
psychiatric professionals to compile credible case studies of
alleged contact with UFO entities while determining the sanity of
the witnesses; his emphasis was on the cases in which two or more
persons were simultaneously "abducted" but hypnotized later, ind-
ependently, for their shared periods of amnesia.
Mr. Carpenter related he was currently studying 15 cases where
two or more person shared an abduction experience. He termed
abduction events Close Encounters of the 4th Kind. His regression
techniques involve absolutely no leading questions that might
contaminate the subject's responses.
The witnesses always describe being in a round room with arched
hallways, a platform for the various medical procedures, and a
computer-like control panel along a wall, etc.. An item this
writer found of interest; Mr. Carpenter said that abductees
never mention conventional examinations of the heart or lungs
He reported that 85% of these abductions involved the typical
3.5 to 4 ft. "grey" entities and that other alien types were
encountered at various times. Of note is the taller grey who
at times faced the abductees almost nose to nose to telepathic-
ally "calm" the subject. Witnesses with shared amnesia exper-
iences uniformly felt this taller grey was female. Abductees
report 30% of these entities wear capes or robes; that a triangular
emblem and sometimes a "phoenix" emblem on uniformed entities
symbolized the rising, joining or rebirth of 2 races. The "nordic"
entities were described as having blonde shoulder-length hair,
brownish green cat-like or reptilian vertical pupils but otherwise
human. Mr. Carpenter also mentioned a genetic hybrid between greys
and humans with sparse hair, large heads, and cat eyes.
Mr. Carpenter's presentation included a slide show with well
done artistic renderings of his subjects' regressions. He con-
cluded by showing a recent home video from somewhere in Missouri
of an alleged alien face peering in a window while several people
watched television. The face appeared to duck down just as a
woman turned her head in that direction. The tape was played at
different speeds and enlargements and gave this writer the willies.

At 2:15pm we heard Linda Moulton Howe, author of An Alien Harvest
and Glimpses of Other Realities. She has won Emmy Awards for her
excellence in television and created the Sightings TV series. Linda
examined animal mutilations and a recent series of stunning events
from the San Luis Valley in Colorado. She reported that cattle
mutilations occurred internationally, and at times on the same date.
Microscopic inspection of these animals revealed bloodless, precise,
serrated, surgical incisions by a high temperature instrument that
could be a laser of some sort. Independent analysis of hide specimens
revealed "cooking" of the hemoglobin where cuts were made.
She described a dramatic 1993 cattle mutilation event in northeastern
Alabama and showed disturbing slides of animals with various body
parts removed. It seems mutilations events are occurring in England
with regularity, however, she reports that investigators are reluct-
ant to let the crop circle phenomena and cattle mutilations become
intertwined. Also of interest, Linda stated that a trend toward
younger and younger animals becoming victims is apparent.
Linda next addressed a startling event that occurred January 12, 1994
3:20 pm near Rock Creek, 6 miles from Monte Vista, Colorado. She
reported that a NORAD satellite had detected an infra-red heat signa-
ture about three acres in size and assumed it to be an explosion or
forest fire. It is customary that the local sheriff be notified and
evaluate wildfires when they are spotted from orbit. The sheriff
couldn't find evidence of fire or an explosion and informed NORAD of
their mistake. Four days later on January 16, a green fireball was
sighted near Rock Creek, and soon witnesses reported seeing helicopt-
ers and B-52's, and a ground force of some type securing a large area.
NORAD's Nelson McCouch called it an unsolved mystery and Linda said
the entire matter is now classified.
She then discussed briefly intra dimensional penetrations, and the
history of green fireballs in the southwest United States. She also
said the greys are androids or workers designed to perform chores;
that they have a yellow iris and vertical pupils under dark glasses;
that the triangle and phoenix emblems represented "the merging of

At 4:00pm Yvonne Smith spoke to us about "UFO Abductions: Files of
a Hypnotherapist." She is a certified hypnotherapist, who works
full-time in Los Angeles with UFO abductees, providing hypnosis
and essential support. In 1991 she founded CERO, the Close Encounters
Research Organization, and has personally regressed 80 individuals.
Her "nuts and bolts" presentation was accompanied by a first rate
slide show with a police artist's depictions (pastels on black back-
ground) of a typical abduction sequence. She reports that bedside
abductions usually involve a bluish beam or light; that the greys
seem "come through the walls", and the abductee feels a tingling
or vibration before they are floated to a waiting ship. I believe
it was John Carpenter who earlier in the day mentioned that the greys
always appear in threes or fours; as if they needed a small team to
perform these abductee floating duties.
Yvonne described the compelling similarities abductees recall during
regression therapy. The standard circular room without distinct walls
or light sources; a spoon-like instrument, a needle-like probe to
implant BB-like objects inside the nose, in and around the ear, and
deep into the scalp; and a hand held "welding instrument" that pro-
duced a blue flash or spark from its tip.
Her eerie slide show depicted the numerous greys performing the intru-
sive procedures we've heard so much about. For the male abductees it
was a tube-like device for sperm extraction and some type of anal pro-
cedure. Female abductees reported invasive gynecological procedures
to harvest eggs and fetuses. At all times a tall female grey appears
to oversee the goings on. The men are sometimes shown the grey
female who bears his hybrid offspring. It seems there are limited
parenting duties abductees are required to perform. Yvonne said her
subjects recall being led to a room with rectangular tanks housing
hybrid alien fetuses suspended in a viscous fluid. Abductees at times
are positioned in front of a viewer or screen of some sort to interact
with symbols and shapes that appear. She said it was a "game or test"
the abductees apparently "knew" how to operate. At times, pictures of
devastation and beauty (the slide depicted the earth blowing to
pieces) are shown by the greys to elicit and monitor emotional
When returned, some abductees say they were floated right through the
ceiling or walls. Yvonne showed photographs of subjects with triang-
ular bruises around the naval area, with needle-like marks in the
She said some implants are crystalline in nature with a honey-combed
texture. When encountered, the nordic or blonde entities seem to be
in charge. Their blue uniforms have white "V" shaped stripes that
start from the shoulders.
Yvonne concluded her presentation with a brief Q & A session, then
everyone headed off to dinner.

At 7:30pm we listened to the witty, entertaining, matter-of-fact pre-
sentation of George Knapp. His topic "Unveiling The Secret UFO Files
of the Former Soviet Union" was soundly documented by the hard-nosed
research he's done as an award-winning journalist and film maker.
George Knapp returned from the former Soviet Union with classified
Russian documents indicating undeniable acceptance and investigation
of UFO's as real.
He emphatically opened his comments by stating that 1994 will be a
"watershed year." In late April, the television show 48 Hours is to
air an investigative UFO program. The BBC is to broadcast a world UFO
special on shortwave. He described the government's $34 billion black
budget and how it related to above top-secret military projects at
Groom Lake in Nevada. Mr. Knapp said various aircraft were developed
at Groom Lake in 1960's that the U.S. Air Force truly didn't know
about. When the USAF said "we don't have planes like that" they
weren't lying. He said that exotic black-budget projects continue at
Area 51 to this day.
Mr. Knapp then related to us his trip to Russia where he investigated
and filmed (for an upcoming documentary) large scale research done by
the KGB and Soviet military. In 1978, the Russians had a spectacular
UFO sighting near the Finnish boarder. Evidently their forces had a
chance to get a few shots off (with no effect). The incident prompted
an order in 1980 that UFO's be "fully investigated." The following
decade, top scientists, the KGB, and the military were doing the hard
science their counterparts in America were brushing off. He mentioned
a secret project Thread 3, which was a Russian attempt to duplicate
We periodically viewed excerpts from Mr. Knapp's documentary; one seg-
ment detailed a Russian scientist's discovery of tiny red globules
obtained from lifeless soil samples at a UFO landing site. The
Russians allowed Mr. Knapp's team to take a small sample of the
substance back with them and an analysis is expected soon. The
Russians say clocks speed up measurably at UFO landing sites. They
also said they never bought the notion of the Roswell Incident being a
weather balloon, and that NASA was "told" not to return to the moon.
In conclusion Mr. Knapp stated that access to former Soviet Union UFO
files is narrowing but he hoped to return soon. After a lively Q & A
this writer decided it was time for a cold beer.

The final speaker Saturday was Michael Lindemann who discussed the
"Politics of Human--Alien Contact." Mr. Lindemann is a social analyst,
futurist, and an authority on political psychology. He has investi-
gated government secrecy and the impact of this phenomena on our
society and the planet.
Mr. Lindemann open his presentation by stating UFO's are the most
important conversation of this era; that he hoped to arm conference
attendees with facts to confidently discuss UFO's; that it's time to
"alter the politics of UFO's." In 1989 he became involved with UFO
research and has studied the government cover-up aggressively. He
said alien entities have "affected human development into deep
antiquity." He explained that governmentally and psychologically,
"secrets can be kept." He detailed the military's absurd account of
the Roswell Incident and subsequent cover-up, and a mass abduction
at an AT&T switching station in Atlanta, Georgia. Landing sites were
paved over within days and astonishingly, AT&T magazine ads had an
extraterrestrial theme (we were shown the slides) in the months that
He related that aliens were diverse, and humans are genetic relatives.
The government was "in no hurry to come clean"; and everyone should
accept the challenge--learn all you can; and share what you know.

Luckily, Forest Crawford's Sunday morning presentation started at
8:30am which enabled us to grab parking spaces on Clearwater Beach
before the sun worshippers arrived. Forest Crawford is a chemist,
and Illinois State Director for the Mutual UFO Network. His discus-
sion entitled "Fascinating Correlations in UFO Research" took an
intriguing look at correlations in research as well as with our own
Mr. Crawford endeavored to explain a "model of the holographic uni-
verse." He demonstrated how a laser uses wave patterns to form holo-
grams, and how recently, the human brain was shown to receive and
record information as a wave analyzer. He spoke of thought influenc-
ing matter on the sub-atomic level; that matter may be solidified
thought, and everything in the universe is connected and made of pure
He used a chart to detail the "seven levels of reality", and the life-
forms that exist within these realities. He returned to more convent-
ional topics and said he believes the MIB work with the greys; that
the greys "need something from us" that account for their long term
genetic studies. Mr. Crawford said the nordics were ancestors of the
greys; the greys are a species genetically damaged in wars with the
nordics; that earth was seeded by blonde Rigelians; and more than one
alien species is interbreeding with humans.

After a break we heard John Mack discuss "Abductions: A New Paradigm
For Our World." John Mack is a Pulizter Prize-winning Harvard Psychi-
atrist who has forged ahead in the field of psychiatry, boldly treat-
ing cases of UFO abductions and facing the skeptics with confidence.
John Mack is currently working with 86 abduction cases, and has had
multiple hypnotic sessions with 50 of these cases up to 9 times. He
stated he was a relative newcomer to the UFO inquiry, and that the
past 4 years have been both stimulating and frightening. He feels
that "fantasy is individualized" making it impossible for abductees
to imagine intimate details identical to other experiencers. He said
the emotional responses he's encountered in case after case is not
rooted in fantasy.
Mr. Mack told us about Peter, a 34 year old abductee who started
hypnotic regression in 1992. Peter said the aliens need our evolution
of consciousness; there would be a hybrid repopulation of the world
after the current human for fails; and that he was involved with
alien "parenting" that has taken his attention away from his own
human family. Peter said the merging of two species is something both
need; the species were divided or split away from a single primal
source long ago; and that humans are only temporary stewards of the
Mr. Mack finished by stating "skeptics are malignant doubters" and
that we should re-experience the universe as sacred. He entertained
questions briefly as the conference was running over time. I did note
the HARDCOPY guy cornering him in the lobby, so everyone should get
a good look at the Harvard professor and other speakers soon.

Skye Ambrose was the final speaker who discussed her "Experiences With
the Unknown: A New View of the Universe." Skye Ambrose had her 1989
abduction experience featured in USA Today. She and a friend were
abducted late at night while driving a secluded stretch of highway
near the Colorado, Kansas border. She underwent regression 5 days
later with the help of John Carpenter. Her friend "Jennifer" recalled
her experience more vividly than Skye but chose to remain anonymous.
Skye feels that the aliens are imparting valuable knowledge to her
telepathically from time to time. She says the aliens are "caretakers"
of earth, and are here to make sure humans don't destroy a valuable
The purpose of the implants they both received (and still have) is to
open latent areas of the brain; the implants have a time release
mechanism; and the people with implants are forerunners of a new
breed or race.
The conference ended around 2:00pm when the wedding reception on the
other side of a thin partition started getting loud. This writer con-
sidered the weekend informative and enlightening. For information on
