'Loving vibes' can't make Mars Observer speak up
Probe still lost in space despite psychic efforts
THE PHOENIX GAZETTE
Despite the best efforts of psychic power practitioners, the Mars
Observer remains lost in space.
Attendees at the Fifth Annual National New Age, Alien Agenda and
Cosmic Conspiracies conference Friday night had hoped to make mental
contact with the space probe that was lost by NASA on its way to the
That attempt at the Holiday Inn near Metrocenter was led by
former astronaut trainee Brian O'Leary, who told his audience to
relax, meditate and "send the loving vibes to the Mars Observer."
"No one has succeeded. Let us see if we can succeed," O'Leary
The space probe wasn't the only topic at this other-worldly
Guest speaker Sue Wallace came to talk about the pyramid she
wears on her head.
"A pyramid acts like an antenna," Wallace explained. "The apex
of the pyramid focuses all the positive charges."
Those charges can heal diabetes, arthritis, mend broken bones
and cure whatever else ails you, she claims.
Wallace, 52, wears the gold-plated wire headgear 75 percent of
her waking hours.
"But not when I'm shopping."
Wallace was one of the more colorful attendees, but not the only
one wearing a pyramid.
The conference drew about 200 participants. They shared stories
about UFO abductions, holistic healing, government conspiracies and
other topics likely to grace the cover of your favorite tabloid.
Many had a chance to sell their wares, making the conference the
only place in town where one could buy a Geiger counter, a toy
spaceship and a bundle of sage incense in one trip.
Al Bielek, another guest speaker, spoke of the government-led
conspiracy that erased all of his memories of the 1943 Philadelphia
In that incident, scientists working for the U.S. military
allegedly sent a World War II ship into hyperspace while trying to
make it invisible to radar, Bielek said.
Bielek said he realized he had been a passenger in that ship
after seeing a movie on the subject.
"I saw it, and after the first 10 minutes, I realized I had been
involved in the experiment," Bielek said.
He then remembered that his real name was Edward Cameron, that
he was 77-years-old, not 66, and that he had been rejuvenated,
brainwashed and transported backward in time by military scientists.

silent and lost.
