I'm using the alias "Isaac", and used to work in what
was called the CARET program in the 80's. During my time there, I worked
with a lot of the technology that is clearly at work in the recent
drone/strange craft sightings, most notably the "language" and
diagrams seen on the underside of each craft. What follows is a lengthy
letter about who I am, what I know, and what these sightings are (probably)
The appearance of these photos has convinced me to release at least some
of the numerous photographs and photocopied documents I still possess some
20 years later that can explain a great deal about these sightings. On
this site you will find some of these. They are available as high
resolution scans that I am giving away free, PROVIDED THEY ARE NOT
MODIFIED IN ANY WAY AND ARE KEPT TOGETHER ALONG WITH THIS WRITTEN
I am also trying to get in touch with the witnesses so far, such as Chad,
Rajman, Jenna, Ty, and the Lake Tahoe witness (especially Chad). I have
advice for them that may be somewhat helpful in dealing with what they've
seen and what I would recommend they do with what they know. If you are
one of these witnesses, or can put me in touch with them, please contact
Coast to Coast AM and let them know.
My Experience with the CARET Program and Extra-terrestrial Technology
Isaac, June 2007
This letter is part of a package I've assembled for Coast to Coast AM to
distribute to its audience. It is a companion to numerous document and
photo scans and should not be separated from them.
You can call me Isaac, an alias I've chosen as a simple measure of
protection while I release what would be called tremendously sensitive
information even by todays standards. “Sensitive” is not necessarily
synonymous with “dangerous”, though, which is why my conscience is
clear as I offer this material up for the public. My government has its
reasons for its continual secrecy, and I sympathize with many of them, but
the truth is that I'm getting old and I'm not interested in meeting my
maker one day with any more baggage than necessary! Furthermore, I put a
little more faith in humanity than my former bosses do, and I think that a
release of at least some of this info could help a lot more than it could
hurt, especially in today's world.
I should be clear before I begin, as a final note: I am not interested in
making myself vulnerable to the consequences of betraying the trust of my
superiors and will not divulge any personal information that could
determine my identity. However my intent is not to deceive, so information
that I think is too risky to share will be simply left out rather than
obfuscated in some way (aside from my alias, which I freely admit is not
my real name). I would estimate that with the information contained in
this letter, I could be narrowed down to one of maybe 30-50 people at
best, so I feel reasonably secure.
Some Explanation for the Recent Sightings
For many years I've occasionally considered the release of at least some
of the material I possess, but the recent wave of photos and sightings has
prompted me to cut to the chase and do so now.
I should first be clear that I'm not directly familiar with any of the
crafts seen in the photos in their entirety. I've never seen them
in a hangar or worked on them myself or seen aliens zipping around in them.
However, I have worked with and seen many of the parts visible in
these crafts, some of which can be seen in the Q3-85 Inventory Review scan
found at the top of this page. More importantly though, I'm very familiar
with the “language” on their undersides seen clearly in photos by Chad
and Rajman, and in another form in the Big Basin photos.
One question I can answer for sure is why they're suddenly here. These
crafts have probably existed in their current form for decades, and I can
say for sure that the technology behind them has existed for decades
before that. The “language”, in fact, (I'll explain shortly why I keep
putting that in quotes) was the subject of my work in years past. I'll
cover that as well.
The reason they're suddenly visible, however, is another matter entirely.
These crafts, assuming they're anything like the hardware I worked with in
the 80's (assuming they're better, in fact), are equipped with technology
that enables invisibility. That ability can be controlled both on board
the craft, and remotely. However, what's important in this case is that
this invisibility can also be disrupted by other technology. Think of it
like radar jamming. I would bet my life savings (since I know this has
happened before) that these craft are becoming visible and then returning
to invisibility arbitrarily, probably unintentionally, and undoubtedly for
only short periods, due to the activity of a kind of disrupting technology
being set off elsewhere, but nearby. I'm especially sure of this in the
case of the Big Basin sightings, were the witnesses themselves reported
seeing the craft just appear and disappear. This is especially likely
because of the way the witness described one of the appearances being only
a momentary flicker, which is consistent with the unintentional,
intermittent triggering of such a device.
It's no surprise that these sightings are all taking place in California,
and especially the Saratoga/South Bay area. Not far from Saratoga is
Mountain View/Sunnyvale, home to Moffett Field and the NASA Ames Research
center. Again, I'd be willing to bet just about anything that the device
capable of hijacking the cloaking of these nearby craft was inadvertently
triggered, probably during some kind of experiment, at the exact moment
they were being seen. Miles away, in Big Basin, the witnesses were in the
right place at the right time and saw the results of this disruption with
their own eyes. God knows what else was suddenly appearing in the skies at
that moment, and who else may have seen it. I've had some direct contact
with this device, or at least a device capable of the same thing, and this
kind of mistake is not unprecedented. I am personally aware of at least
one other incident in which this kind of technology was accidentally set
off, resulting in the sudden visibility of normally invisible things. The
only difference is that these days, cameras are a lot more common!
The technology itself isn't ours, or at least it wasn't in the 80's. Much
like the technology in these crafts themselves, the device capable of
remotely hijacking a vehicle's clacking comes from a non-human source too.
Why we were given this technology has never been clear to me, but it's
responsible for a lot. Our having access to this kind of device, along
with our occasionally haphazard experimentation on them, has lead to
everything from cloaking malfunctions like this to full-blown crashes. I
can assure you that most (and in my opinion all) incidents of UFO crashes
or that kind of thing had more to do with our meddling with extremely
powerful technology at an inopportune time than it did mechanical failure
on their part. Trust me, those things don't fail unless something even
more powerful than them makes them fail (intentionally or not). Think of
it like a stray bullet. You can be hit by one at any time, without warning,
and even the shooter didn't intent to hit you. I can assure you heads are
rolling over this as well. If anyone notices a brilliant but sloppy
physicist patrolling the streets of Baghdad in the next couple weeks, I'd
be willing to guess how he got there. (I kid, of course, as I certainly
hope that hasn't actually happened in this case)
I'd now like to explain how it is that I know this.
The CARET Program
My story begins the same as it did for many of my co workers, with
graduate and post-graduate work at university in electrical engineering.
And I had always been interested in computer science, which was a very new
field at the time, and my interest piqued with my first exposure to a Tixo
during grad school. In the years following school I took a scenic route
through the tech industry and worked for the kinds of companies you would
expect, until I was offered a job at the Department of Defense and things
took a very different turn.
My time at the DoD was mostly uneventful but I was there for quite a while.
I apparently proved myself to be reasonably intelligent and loyal. By 1984
these qualities along with my technical background made me a likely
candidate for a new program they were recruiting for called “CARET”.
Before I explain what CARET was I should back up a little. By 1984,
Silicon Valley had been a juggernaut of technology for decades. In the
less than 40 years since the appearance of Shockley’s transistor this
part of the world had already produced a multi billion dollar computer
industry and made technological strides that were unprecedented in other
fields, from hypertext and online collaboration in '68 to the Alto in '73.
Private industry in Silicon Valley was responsible for some of the most
incredible technological leaps in history and this fact did not go
unnoticed by the US government and military. I don’t claim to have any
special knowledge about Roswell or any of the other alleged early UFO
events, but I do know that whatever the exact origin, the military was
hard at work trying to understand and use the extra-terrestrial artifacts
it had in its possession. While there had been a great deal of progress
overall, things were not moving as quickly as some would have liked. So,
in 1984, the CARET program was created with the aim of harnessing the
abilities of private industry in silicon valley and applying it to the
ongoing task of understanding extra-terrestrial technology.
One of the best examples of the power of the tech sector was Xerox PARC, a
research center in Palo Alto, CA. XPARC was responsible for some of the
major milestones in the history of computing. While I never had the
privilege of working there myself I did know many of the people who did
and I can say that they were among the brightest engineers I ever knew.
XPARC served as one of the models for the CARET program’s first
incarnation, a facility called the Palo Alto CARET Laboratory (PACL,
lovingly pronounced “packle” during my time there). This was where I
worked, along with numerous other civilians, under the auspices of
military brass who were eager to find out how the tech sector made so much
progress so quickly. My time at the DoD was a major factor behind why I
was chosen, and in fact about 30+ others who were hired around the same
time had also been at the Department about as long, but this was not the
case for everyone. A couple of my co-workers were plucked right from
places like IBM and, at least two of them came from XPARC itself. My DoD
experience did make me more eligable for positions of management, however,
which is how I have so much of this material in my possession to begin
So in other words, civilians like myself who had at--at most--some decent
experience working for the DoD but no actual military training or
involvement, were suddenly finding ourselves in the same room as highly
classified extra-terrestrial technology. Of course they spent about 2
months briefing us all before we saw or did anything, and did their best
to convince us that if we ever leaked a single detail about what we were
being told, they’d do everything short of digging up our ancestors and
putting a few slugs in them too just for good measure. It seemed like
there was an armed guard in every corner of every room. I’d worked under
some pretty hefty NDAs in my time but this was so far out of my depth I
didn’t think I was going to last 2 weeks in an environment like that.
But amazingly things got off to a good start. They wanted us, plain and
simple, and our industry had shown itself to be so good at what it did
that they were just about ready to give us carte blanche.
Of course, nothing with the military is ever that simple, and as is often
the case they wanted to have their cake and eat it too. What I mean by
this is that despite their interest in picking our brains and learning
whatever they could from our way of doing things, they still wanted to do
it their way often enough to frustrate us.
At this point I'm going to gloss over the emotional side of this
experience, because this letter isn't intended to be a memoir, but I will
say that there's almost no way to describe the impact this kind of
revelation has on your mind. There are very few moments in life in which
your entire world view is turned forever upside down, but this was one of
them. I still remember that turning point during the briefing when I
realized what he'd just told us, and that I hadn't heard him wrong, and
that it wasn't some kind of joke. In retrospect the whole thing feels like
it was in slow motion, from that slight pause he took just before the term
“extra-terrestrial” came out for the first time, to the way the room
itself seemed to go off kilter as we collectively tried to grasp what was
being said. My reflex kept jumping back and forth between trying to look
at the speaker, to understand him better, and looking at everyone else
around me, to make sure I wasn't the only one that was hearing this. At
the risk of sounding melodramatic, it's a lot like a child learning his
parents are divorcing. I never experienced that myself, but a very close
friend of mine did when were boys, and he confided in me a great deal
about what the experience felt like. A lot of what he said would aptly
describe what I was feeling in that room. Here was a trusted authority
figure telling you something that you just don't feel ready for, and
putting a burden on your mind that you don't necessarily want to carry.
The moment that first word comes out, all you can think about it is what
it was like only seconds ago, and knowing that life is never going to be
as simple as it was then. After all that time at the DoD, I thought I at
least had some idea of what was going on in the world, but I'd never heard
so much as a peep about this. Maybe one day I'll write more on this aspect,
because it's the kind of thing I really would like to get off my chest,
but for now I'll digress.
Unlike traditional research in this area, we weren’t working on new toys
for the air force. For numerous reasons, the CARET people decided to aim
its efforts at commercial applications rather than military ones. They
basically wanted us to turn these artifacts into something they could
patent and sell. One of CARET’s most appealing promises was the revenue
generated by these product-ready technologies, which could be funneled
right back into black projects. Working with a commercial application in
mind was also yet another way to keep us in a familiar mind state.
Developing technology for the military is very different than doing so for
the commercial sector, and not having to worry about the difference was
another way that CARET was very much like private industry.
CARET shined in the way it let us work the way we were used to working.
They wanted to recreate as much of the environment we were used to as they
could without compromising issues like security. That meant we got free
reign to set up our own workflow, internal management structure, style
manuals, documentation, and the like. They wanted this to look and feel
like private industry, not the military. They knew that was how to get the
best work out of us, and they were right.
But things didn’t go as smoothly when it came to matters like access to
classified information. They were exposing what is probably their single
biggest secret to a group of people who had never even been through basic
training and it was obvious that the gravity of this decision was never
far from their minds. We started the program with a small set of
extra-terrestrial artifacts along with fairly elaborate briefings on each
as well as access to a modest amount of what research had already been
completed. It wasn’t long before we realized we needed more though, and
getting them to provide even the smallest amount of new material was like
pulling teeth. CARET stood for “Commercial Applications Research for
Extra-terrestrial Technology”, but we often joked that it should have
stood for “Civilians Are Rarely Ever Trusted.”
PACL was located in Palo Alto, but unlike XPARC, it wasn’t at the end of
a long road in the middle of a big complex surrounded by rolling hills and
trees. PACL was hidden in an office complex owned entirely by the military
but made to look like an unassuming tech company. From the street, all you
could see was what appeared to be a normal parking lot with a gate and a
guard booth, and a 1-story building inside with a fictitious name and
logo. What wasn’t visible from the street was that behind the very first
set of doors was enough armed guards to invade Poland, and 5 additional
underground stories. They wanted to be as close as possible to the kinds
of people they were looking to hire and be able to bring them in with a
minimum of fuss.
Inside, we had everything we needed. State of the art hardware and a staff
of over 200 computer scientists, electrical engineers, mechanical
engineers, physicists and mathematicians. Most of us were civilians, as
I’ve said, but some were military, and a few of them had been working on
this technology already. Of course, you were never far from the barrel of
a machine gun, even inside the labs themselves (something many of us never
got used to), and bi-weekly tours were made by military brass to ensure
that not a single detail was out of line. Most of us underwent extensive
searches on our way into and out of the building. There it was, probably
the biggest secret in the world, in a bunch of parts spread out on
laboratory tables in the middle of Palo Alto so you can imagine their
One downside to CARET was that it wasn't as well-connected as other
operations undoubtedly were. I never got to see any actual
extra-terrestrials (not even photos), and in fact never even saw one of
their compete vehicles. 99% of what I saw was related to the work at hand,
all of which was conducted within a very narrow context on individual
artifacts only. The remaining 1% came from people I met through the
program, many of which working more closely with “the good stuff” or
had in the past.
In fact, what was especially amusing about the whole affair was the way
that our military management almost tried to act as if the technology we
were essentially reverse engineering wasn't extra-terrestrial at all.
Aside from the word “extra-terrestrial” itself, we rarely heard any
other terms like “alien” or “UFO” or “outer space” or anything.
Those aspects were only mentioned briefly when absolutely necessary to
explain something. In many cases it was necessary to differentiate between
the different races and their respective technology, and they didn't even
use the word “races”. They were referred to simply as different “sources”.
A lot of the technology we worked on was what you would expect, namely
antigravity. Most of the researchers on the staff with backgrounds in
propulsion and rocketry were military men, but the technology we were
dealing with was so out of this world that it didn’t really matter all
that much what your background was because none of it applied. All we
could hope to do was use the vocabulary of our respective fields as a way
to model the extremely bizarre new concepts we were very slowly beginning
to understand as best we could. A rocket engineer doesn’t usually rub
elbows much with a computer scientist, but inside PACL, we were all
equally mystified and were ready to entertain any and all ideas.
The physicists made the most headway initially because out of all of our
skills, theirs overlapped the most with the concepts behind this
technology (although that isn’t saying much!) Once they got the ball
rolling though, we began to find that many of the concepts found in
computer science were applicable as well, albeit in very vague ways. While
I didn’t do a lot of work with the antigrav hardware myself, I was
occasionally involved in the assessment of how that technology was meant
to interface with its user.
The antigrav was amazing, of course, as were the advances we were making
with materials engineering and so on. But what interested me most then,
and still amazes me most to this day, was something completely unrelated.
In fact, it was this technology that immediately jumped out at me when I
saw the Chad and Rajman photos, and even moreso in the Big Basin photos.
I put the word Language in quotes because calling what I am about to
describe a “language” is a misnomer, although it is an easy mistake to
Their hardware wasn’t operated in quite the same way as ours. In our
technology, even today, we have a combination of hardware and software
running almost everything on the planet. Software is more abstract than
hardware, but ultimately it needs hardware to run it. In other words,
there’s no way to write a computer program on a piece of paper, set that
piece of paper on a table or something, and expect it to actually do
something. The most powerful code in the world still doesn’t actually do
anything until a piece of hardware interprets it and translates its
commands into actions.
But their technology is different. It really did operate like the magical
piece of paper sitting on a table, in a manner of speaking. They had
something akin to a language, that could quite literally execute itself,
at least in the presence of a very specific type of field. The language, a
term I am still using very loosely, is a system of symbols (which does
admittedly very much resemble a written language) along with geometric
forms and patterns that fit together to form diagrams that are themselves
functional. Once they are drawn, so to speak, on a suitable surface made
of a suitable material and in the presence of a certain type of field,
they immediately begin performing the desired tasks. It really did seem
like magic to us, even after we began to understand the principles behind
I worked with these symbols more than anything during my time at PACL, and
recognized them the moment I saw them in the photos. They appear in a very
simple form on Chad’s craft, but appear in the more complex diagram form
on the underside of the Big Basin craft as well. Both are unmistakable,
even at the small size of the Big Basin photos. An example of a diagram in
the style of the Big Basin craft is included with this in a series of
scanned pages from the [mistitled] "Linguistic Analysis Primer".
We needed a copy of that diagram to be utterly precise, and it took about
a month for a team of six to copy that diagram into our drafting program!
Explaining everything I learned about this technology would fill up
several volumes, but I will do my best to explain at least some of the
concepts as long as I am taking the time to write all this down.
First of all, you wouldn't open up their hardware to find a CPU here, and
a data bus there, and some kind of memory over there. Their hardware
appeared to be perfectly solid and consistent in terms of material from
one side to the other. Like a rock or a hunk of metal. But upon [much]
closer inspection, we began to learn that it was actually one big
holographic computational substrate - each "computational
element" (essentially individual particles) can function
independently, but are designed to function together in tremendously large
clusters. I say its holographic because you can divide it up into the
smallest chunks you want and still find a scaled-down but complete
representation of the whole system. They produce a nonlinear computational
output when grouped. So 4 elements working together is actually more than
4 times more powerful than 1. Most of the internal "matter" in
their crafts (usually everything but the outermost housing) is actually
this substrate and can contribute to computation at any time and in any
state. The shape of these "chunks" of substrate also had a
profound effect on its functionality, and often served as a "shortcut"
to achieve a goal that might otherwise be more complex.
So back to the language. The language is actually a "functional
blueprint". The forms of the shapes, symbols and arrangements thereof
is itself functional. What makes it all especially difficult to
grasp is that every element of each "diagram" is dependant on
and related to every other element, which means no single detail can be
created, removed or modified independently. Humans like written language
because each element of the language can be understood on its own, and
from this, complex expressions can be built. However, their "language"
is entirely context-sensitive, which means that a given symbol could mean
as little as a 1-bit flag in one context, or, quite literally, contain the
entire human genome or a galaxy star map in another. The ability for a
single, small symbol to contain, not just represent,
tremendous amounts of data is another counter-intuitive aspect of this
concept. We quickly realized that even working in groups of 10 or more on
the simplest of diagrams, we found it virtually impossible to get anything
done. As each new feature was added, the complexity of the diagram
exponentially grew to unmanageable proportions. For this reason we began
to develop computer-based systems to manage these details and achieved
some success, although again we found that a threshold was quickly reached
beyond which even the supercomputers of the day were unable to keep up.
Word was that the extra-terrestrials could design these diagrams as
quickly and easily as a human programmer could write a Fortran program.
It's humbling to think that even a network of supercomputers wasn't able
to duplicate what they could do in their own heads. Our entire system of
language is based on the idea of assigning meaning to symbols. Their
technology, however, somehow merges the symbol and the meaning, so a
subjective audience is not needed. You can put whatever meaning you want
on the symbols, but their behavior and functionality will not change, any
more than a transistor will function differently if you give it another
Here's an example of how complex the process is. Imagine I ask you to
incrementally add random words to a list such that no two words use any of
the same letters, and you must perform this exercise entirely in your
head, so you can't rely on a computer or even a pen and paper. If the
first in the list was, say, "fox", the second item excludes all
words with the letters F, O and X. If the next word you choose is "tree",
then the third word in the list can't have the letters F, O, X, T, R, or E
in it. As you can imagine, coming up with even a third word might start to
get just a bit tricky, especially since you can't easily visualize the
excluded letters by writing down the words. By the time you get to the
fourth, fifth and sixth words, the problem has spiraled out of control.
Now imagine trying to add the billionth word to the list (imagine also
that we're working with an infinite alphabet so you don't run out of
letters) and you can imagine how difficult it is for even a computer to
keep up. Needless to say, writing this kind of thing "by hand"
is orders of magnitude beyond the capabilities of the brain.
My background lent itself well to this kind of work though. I'd spent
years writing code and designing both analog and digital circuits, a
process that at least visually resembled these diagrams in some way. I
also had a personal affinity for combinatorics, which served me well as I
helped with the design of software running on supercomputers that could
juggle the often trillions of rules necessary to create a valid
diagram of any reasonable complexity. This overlapped quite a bit with
compiler theory as well, a subject I always found fascinating, and in
particular compiler optimization, a field that wasn't half of what it is
today back then. A running joke among the linguistics team was that Big-O
notation couldn't adequately describe the scale of the task, so we'd
substitute other words for "big". By the time I left I remember
the consensus was "Astronomical-O" finally did it justice.
Like I said, I could go on for hours about this subject, and would love to
write at least an introductory book on the subject if it wasn't still
completely classified, but that's not the point of this letter so I'll try
to get back on track.
The last thing I'd like to discuss is how I got copies of this material,
what else I have in my possession, and what I plan to do with it in the
norwegian man having in a kind of trance, got a lot (hundreds of pages) of
messages in such coded cosmic/telepathic language as such signs (most in
the late 80ths) - also seemingly technical stuff - just click some of the
links down on http://galactic21.no-ip.com/torealf/romsk.html
link)- but you will probably not understand much of it. He means
someone in the (near?) future will be able to understand and make use of
this information. More "understandable"
high-tech have he got telepatic transferred and made online on http://galactic21.no-ip.com/torealf/tekno.html
and on http://galactic21.no-ip.com/torealf/ginfo.html
It is to remark that he also claims having memory on making a walk-in into
his (then) borrowed babybody in 1958!!- coming directly together with a
group of 7 from a spaceship, which he remember came from Sirius!!
Well, allegedly far-out claims- but as I personally knows him, I do KNOW
that with his (hight-tech)-knowledge, he cannot be from "here".
He has also an intuitive insight in data, and I always call him when the
pc or server is down. His mother very early understood that he was SO
unlike his 2 y older brother, and was something very special she says....
Then back to this man now leaking
info of the secret work he was on:
I worked at PACL from 1984 to 1987, by which time I was utterly burned
out. The sheer volume of details to keep in mind while working with the
diagrams was enough to challenge anyone's sanity, and I was really at the
end of my rope with the military's attitude towards our “need to
know”. Our ability to get work done was constantly hampered by their
reluctance to provide us with the necessary information, and I was tired
of bureaucracy getting in the way of research and development. I left
somewhere in the middle of a 3-month bell curve in which about a quarter
of the entire PACL staff left for similar reasons.
I was also starting to disagree with the direction the leadership wanted
to take as far as the subject of extra-terrestrials went. I always felt
that at least some form of disclosure would be beneficial, but as a lowly
CARET engineer I wasn't exactly in the position to call shots. The truth
is, our management didn't even want us discussing non-technical
aspects of this subject (such as ethical or philosophical issues), even
among ourselves, as they felt it was enough of a breach of security to let
civilians like us anywhere near this kind of thing in the first place.
So, about 3 months before I resigned (which was about 8 months before I
was really out, since you don't just walk out of a job like that
with a 2 week notice). I decided to start taking advantage of my position.
As I mentioned earlier, my DoD experience got me into an internal
management role sooner than some of my colleagues, and after about a year
of that kind of status, the outgoing searches each night became slightly
less rigorous. Normally, we were to empty out any containers, bags or
briefcases, then remove our shirt and shoes and submit to a kind of
frisking. Work was never allowed to go home with you, no matter who
you were. For me, though, the briefcase search was eventually enough.
Even before I actually decided to do it, I was sure that I would be able
to sneak certain materials out with me. I wanted to do this because I knew
the day would come when I would want to write something like this, and I
knew I'd regret it until the day I died if I didn't at least leave the
possibility open to do so. So I started photocopying documents and reports
by the dozen. I'd then put the papers under my shirt around my lower back,
tucked enough into my belt to ensure they wouldn't fall out. I could do
this in any one of a few short, windowless hallways on some of the lower
floors, which were among the few places that didn't have an armged guard
watching my every move. I'd walk in one end with a stack of papers large
enough that when I came out the other end with some of them in my shirt,
there wouldn't be a visible difference in what I was holding. You
absolutely cannot be too careful if you're going to pull a stunt
like this. As long as I walked carefully they wouldn't make a crinkling
noise. In fact, the more papers I took, the less noise they made, since
they weren't as flimsy that way. I'd often take upwards of 10-20 pages at
once. By the time I was done, I'd made out with hundreds of photocopies,
as well as a few originals and a large collection of original photographs.
With this initial letter I have attached high resolution scans of the
This material is the most relevant and explanatory I could
find on short notice. Now that these are up, IF I decide to release more
in the future, I'll be able to take my time and better search this rather
large collection of mine that I've sadly never organized. I'm not sure
what I'll be doing with the rest of the collection in the future. I
suppose I'll wait and see how this all plays out, and then play it by ear.
There are certainly risks involved in what I'm doing, and if I were to
actually be identified and caught, there could be rather serious
consequences. However, I've taken the proper steps to ensure a reasonable
level of anonymity and am quite secure in the fact that the information
I've so far provided is by no means unique among many of the CARET
- A page from an inventory review with a photo that
appears to depict one of the parts found in the Rajman sighting and
parts very similar to the Big Basin craft
- The first 9 pages of one of our quarterly research
- Scans of the original photographs used in that
report, since the photocopies obscure most of the details
- 5 pages from a report on our ongoing analysis of the
“language” (inappropriately titled “linguistic analysis”),
depicting the kind of diagram just barely visible on the underside of
the Big Basin craft
Besides, part of me has always suspected that the government relies on the
occasional leak like this, and actually wants them to happen, because it
contributes to a steady, slow-paced path towards revealing the truth of
Since Leaving CARET
Like I said, I left PACL in '87, but have kept in touch with a great many
of my friends and coworkers from those days. Most of us are retired by now,
except of course for those of us that went on to get teaching jobs, but a
few of us still hear things through the grapevine.
As for CARET itself, I'm not sure what's become of it. Whether it's still
known by the same name, I'm quite sure it's still active in some capacity,
although who knows where. I heard from a number of people that PACL closed
up shop a few years after I left, but I've still yet to get a clear answer
on why exactly that happened. But I'm sure the kind of work we did there
is still going strong. I've heard from a lot of friends that there are
multiple sites like PACL in Sunnyvale and Mountain View, also disguised to
look like unremarkable office space. But this is all second-hand
information so you can make of it what you will.
Around 2002 or so I came across Coast to Coast AM and have been hooked
ever since. I admit, I don't take most of the show's content as anything
more than entertainment, but there have been occasions when I could be
sure a guest was clearly speaking from experience or a well-informed
source. For me, there's just something very surreal about hearing all this
speculation and so-called inside information about UFOs and the like, but
being personally able to verify at least some of it as being true or
false. It's also a nightly reminder of how hectic things were in those
days, which helps me enjoy my retirement all the more. Knowing I'm not
part of that crazy world anymore really is something I enjoy on a daily
basis, as much as I miss some of it.
What I've shared so far is only a very small portion of what I have, and
what I know. Despite the very sheltered and insulated atmosphere within
CARET, I did ultimately learn a great deal from various colleagues, and
some of what I learned is truly incredible. I'd also like to say that for
what it's worth, during my time there I never heard anything about
invasions, or abductions, or many of the more frightening topics that
often pop up on Coast to Coast AM. That's not to say that none of it is
true, but in my time working alongside some of the most well-connected
people in this field, it never came up. So at the very least I can say my
intent is not to scare anyone. My view on the extra-terrestrial situation
is very much a positive, albiet still highly secretive one.
One thing I can definitely say is that if they wanted us gone, we would
have been gone a very, very long time ago, and we wouldn't even
have seen it coming. Throw out your ideas about a space war or anything
silly like that. We'd be capable of fighting back against them about as
much as ants could fight back against a stampede of buffalo. But that's
OK. We're the primitive race, they're the advanced races, and that's just
the way it is. The other advanced races let them live through their
primitive years back in their day, and there's no reason to think it will
be any different for us. They aren't in the market for a new planet, and
even if they were, there are way too many planets out there for them to
care about ours enough to take it by force.
To reiterate my take on the recent sightings, I'd guess that
experimentation done in the last couple months on a device that, among
other things, is capable of interfering with various crafts onboard
invisibility has resulted in a sudden wave of sightings. It may not
explain all of the recent events, but like I said, I'd bet my life that's
exactly what happened at Big Basin at least, and it's probably related in
some way to the Chad, Rajman and Tahoe sightings. So, despite all the
recent fanfare over this, I'd say this doesn't mean much. Most importantly,
they aren't suddenly “here”. They've been here for a long time, but
just happened to turn unintentionally visible for brief periods recently.
Lastly, there are so many people selling books, and DVDs, and doing
lectures, and all that, that I would like to reiterate the fact that I am not
here to sell anything. The material I'm sharing is free to distribute
provided it's all kept intact and unmodified, and this letter is included.
I tend to question the motives of anyone charging money for their
information, and will assure you that I will never do such a thing. And in
the future, just to cover all the bases, anyone claiming to be me who's
selling a DVD or book is most certainly not going to be me.
Any future releases from me will come from the email address I've used to
contact Coast to Coast AM, and will be sent to them only. I'd like to make
this clear as well to ensure that people can be sure that any future
information comes from the same source, although I must be clear: at this
time I do not have any future plans for additional information. Time will
tell how long I will maintain this policy, but do not expect anything soon.
I'd really like to let this information “settle” for a while and see
how it goes. If I find out I'm getting an IRS audit tomorrow, then maybe
this wasn't too smart. Until then, I'm going to take it slow. I hope this
information has been helpful.
