In Extraterrestrial Contact, Emanuel Swedenborg and Christianity I covered several theories to explain Emanuel Swedenborg's encounters with extraterrestrials in the 18th century. Despite what skeptics may think there is one point I want to follow up on, which cannot be denied by anyone: Swedenborg was given a very accurate description of the rings of Saturn, before it was verified by science 150 years later. He stated that this description was given to him by human extraterrestrials from Saturn. I concluded this:
"...these rings can only be seen in this way above the atmosphere of Saturn. So the only way this could be seen in this way by an extraterrestrial spirit is if it was close to the rings in a spacecraft, or happened to have originated from one of the moons of Saturn. Possibly Swedenborg misidentified extraterrestrials from one of the moons of Saturn with the planet Saturn itself. One possible candidate is Saturn's moon Enceladus which harbors an underwater ocean, which was discovered in 1789 after Swedenborg's death."So that is a very far reaching conclusion, which most would consider highly unlikely. Some have asked me what I think concerning the Interdimensional Hypothesis concerning UFOs, which proposes they are interdimensional beings. My opinion on that is that they can be from anywhere: they can be extraterrestrial, interdimensional, or even "ultra-terrestrial" - and one hypothesis does not preclude the other. One of the proponents of the Interdimensional Hypothesis is Jacques Vallee, a French computer scientist who has been studying UFOs for over 40 years. So, at the recommendation of others, I decided to pick up one of his books and randomly started with Messengers of Deception. It is an interesting read, with some good insights. One thing Jacques Vallee notes: there are too many confirmed UFO sightings that can't be explained by natural causes or human activity. His conclusion: many UFOs must originate from some place close. Very close, if not earth itself.
There is one particular case in this book which caught my attention. This is the contact case of Jacques Bordas, who was interviewed by Jacques Vallee himself. It may or may not be related to Emanuel Swedenborg's 18th century encounter with the extraterrestrials of Saturn
THE CONTACT CASE OF JACQUES BORDAS
Jacques Bordas was born on July 20, 1911 and lived in Barcelona Spain. He was born sick and was obese due to a hormonal deficiency. At the age 12, he was lying down and had the sudden urge to climb up to the terrace. There, he saw three triangular metallic craft measuring less than 9 feet. One of them opened and a being no taller him wearing a white suit and mantle approached him and said:
"We have come to see you, because we have taken you under our protection. We know how much you suffer, and we know your dream of becoming a strong man, an athlete. You will realize it, with our help; you will be strong, not only physically but mentally, too. Now that we have adopted you, we will never forsake you. In the future we will come back to you again. In the meantime, as a token of friendship, take this."He gave him a square dark candy and was told to eat it. He did, and long story short, he went through a remarkable transformation, becoming a very strong mountain climber as he grew in age. He joined the Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War, and later escaped to France and became a manager of a hotel on Vernent Mountain at the foot of the Canigou.
It was here he was resting in the patio when in 1951 he was approached by a man 6 ft. tall, blue eyes, long blonde hair, extremely white, and slightly elongated eyes. He simply asked him, could he provide him every day, at the same time, 2 bottles of milk and some bread? This he agreed to do, and they met at the same time every day in the same place.
This continued until Bordas finally asked him where did he come from. "From above" was the reply, and Bordas assumed he meant "from the mountain." Evidently this stranger was doing a survey of the mountains - he eventually showed him a strange sheet of parchment like paper in which the mountain was drawn in fine detail, with strange symbolic markings. Later the conversation turned to political subjects. The stranger said:
"Man must tear away his egotism. Man believes that he is unable to do this, but he can, although it's very hard. Man believes he is the only important being on the Earth; he ignores the fact that he is nothing more than one element in natural evolution. In spite of his unbounded pride, his so-called knowledge, there is another species evolving now that will replace him in due time. Even your children are undergoing the transformation: they will change everything, the religion...."On the last day the stranger repaid Bordas for his kindness with something he said "his people" would appreciate as he had none of his currency - he gave him some gold he found in the mountains, as he had no money to repay him.
So the stranger disappeared, and Bordas began to develop psychic abilities where he could find lost items. Twenty years later he received a phone call in 1971 in which he explained to Bordas he would go through a further mutation - his consciousness would open up to "universal truths." There were other ongoing contacts but they are not detailed in the book.
At the time Vallee met him he was a highly successful businessman of a furniture company in Andorra, exporting to 30 different countries. Several witnesses confirmed seeing him with the stranger, and the jeweler did confirm that Bordas brought in some gold to be assessed, which indeed was gold. When the son of Bordas took pictures of people at the picnic, all pictures came out except the ones in which this stranger appeared - they came out blank. Vallee interviewed him in 1976 and found him to be low key, and as a successful businessman he never sought to make any money from his contacts. Bordas had numerous contacts with them, and they revealed to him where they were from: from the moon Titan, orbiting Saturn.
Vallee considered that this was a strong case due to his personal investigation and confirmation from other witnesses. Also I would like to note here that certain behaviour patterns appear which can be seen in multiple other independent contact cases:
1. Repeated contacts of an individual from childhood.As these strangers tend to be deliberately ambiguous on their origin, is the moon Titan their actual origin? Could this be what Swedenborg was referring to in his encounters with human extraterrestrials from Saturn? Jacques Bordas is not the only one - Howard Menger also stated he encountered a human extraterrestrial from Saturn, who taught him a song on a piano (see A Telepathic Dream of a Song from Saturn.
2. Dramatic healing of a life long illness.
3. Development of psychic abilities (even finding lost objects) following contact.
4. Inability to photograph the strangers.
5. Deliberate ambiguity when asked about their origin.
6. In most cases, contactee keeps a low profile and seeks no publicity.
7. These strangers can completely merge in our culture and appear like one of us.
EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE ON THE MOON TITAN
Titan is the second largest moon in the solar system, 50% larger than the moon and 80% more massive. It it the only satellite in the solar system to have a dense atmosphere, the stratosphere composed of 95% nitrogen and 5% (or 2%) methane. Its atmospheric pressure is 1.5 times that of earth. The atmosphere of Titan actually extends much further out than earth:
I am not sure why the temperature gets colder on Titan as one gets closer to the surface (please drop me a note if anyone knows the answer to this). The methane does indeed work to produce a greenhouse effect (see The greenhouse and antigreenhouse effects on Titan). There have been conflicting reports on the lower layers of Titan's atmosphere (see Saturn's Moon Titan May be More Earth-Like Than Thought). The source of the methane is classified as a mystery. From JPL Cassini Solstice Mission:
One of Titan's great mysteries is the source of its methane, which makes all of this complex chemistry possible. Since sunlight breaks down methane in the atmosphere, there must be a source that replenishes what is lost. Researchers suspect methane could be belched into Titan's atmosphere by cryovolcanism, or volcanoes with water as lava, and Cassini continues to look for such activity.Methane, of course, could be an indicator of biological activity. But scientists are cautious and look for geological explanations first. As the Sun's light breaks down methane, something else is replenishing it and scientists do not know what that is. Another interesting discovery was made in 2010. From Strange Discovery on Titan Leads to Speculation of Alien Life:
One study suggested that hydrogen was flowing down through Titan's atmosphere and disappearing at the surface. Astrobiologist Chris McKay at NASA Ames Research Center speculated this could be a tantalizing hint that hydrogen is getting consumed by life.
"It's the obvious gas for life to consume on Titan, similar to the way we consume oxygen on Earth," McKay said.
The surface of Titan has many features similar to that of earth - including dunes, mountains, rivers and lakes. It also has cryovolcanos. The lakes are composed of liquid methane-ethane due to a surface temperature of 94 K. Here is a picture of a mountain from the Huygens probe:
Scientists analyzing data from NASA’s Cassini mission have firm evidence of an ocean inside Saturn's largest moon, Titan, which might be as salty as the Earth's Dead Sea. ...The new results come from a study of gravity and topography data collected during Cassini's repeated flybys of Titan during the past 10 years. Researchers found that a relatively high density was required for Titan's subsurface ocean in order to explain the gravity data. This indicates the ocean is probably an extremely salty brine of water mixed with dissolved salts likely composed of sulfur, sodium and potassium.So, Titan is not exactly "home sweet home" to humans who need oxygen, and any potential habitat would probably exist beneath the surface. Promising but not conclusive, but the fact is methane is the primary indicator of biological activity. Something unknown is replenishing it in the atmosphere of Titan.
THE CASSINI-HUYGENS MISSION TO SATURN
Is there any reason to doubt the data returned to us by NASA probes? Yes there is - I have previously covered testimony from witnesses who stated unequivocally that NASA repeatedly blur out sections of images to hide artificial structures from the public, and conclusive evidence of this can be seen in multiple NASA photographs. Also before men were landed on the Moon an entire replica of the Moon landscape was created in Langley Virginia. Anyone who researches the NASA data will see some unusual discrepancies, and some have jumped to the conclusion that the landing was a "hoax." The truth of the matter is indeed the astronauts landed there, but some transmissions were never made public and replaced with false data. See the following interview of Dr. Steven M. Greer, who mentions this, but then drops a very interesting piece of information concerning the data returned from the Cassini-Huygens probe:
Regarding the Cassini-Huygens probe, Dr. Steven M. Greer states he was contacted by a scientist from Lockheed Martin. This scientist stated that there is a large extraterrestrial group out by Saturn. There are astonishing images of massive extraterrestrial craft miles across. These are filtered out, and NASA scientists are only given the filtered data.
Is this true, can we verify it? According to NASA Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor for Cassini-Huygens (see NASA - A Big Boost for Cassini). If we go to Lockheed Martin's web site, all they talk about is the Cassini propulsion system (see Cassini Spacecraft–Makes 100th Flyby Of Saturn’s Largest Moon Titan). No mention is made of the communication system, but Lockheed Martin is a contractor for U.S. military satellites, including AEHF and Milstar which provides encrypted and jam-resistant communication (see Lockheed Martin Space Systems - Global Communications Systems). Cassini communicates with the Deep Space Network or DSN (see Cassini-Huygens Probe Telecommunications), which has ground based stations in California, Madrid Spain, and Canberra Australia. So if there is data filtering, it would occur at one or all of those three stations.
This is another indicator that knowledge of the extraterrestrial presence is in the hands of the U.S. military and private contractors (with help from intelligence agencies), not necessarily everyone at NASA, nor elected officials.
CASSINI PHOTOGRAPHS OF CYLINDRICAL UFOS NEAR SATURN
Despite this secrecy things slip through. The Cassini photographs show cylindrical UFOs in the vicinity of Saturn, and indeed they are huge. These are not frame dragging objects. Check this out:
Here is Cassini photograph N00025576 from The Spaceships of Saturn:
There are a number of others, just cut and paste these links:
SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS OF EARLIER PHOTOGRAPHS OF CYLINDRICAL UFOS BY VOYAGER 1 AND 2
Some of these cylindrical UFOs were caught earlier in the Voyager photographs (see also The Cylindrical UFOs of Saturn. For this see this presentation by Norman Bergrun on his book Ringmakers of Saturn. Norman Bergrun is a scientist with a long established career with the military and aeronautical corporations. His theory is that these cylindrical UFOs are generating the rings of Saturn with their electrical fields (there is actually no scientific consensus on how Saturn's rings are formed). Bob Dean proposed the theory that they are mining the rings of Saturn for minerals. Norman Bergrun also discusses why the cylinder is an excellent shape for producing a magnetic field. Some of these are just so huge it boggles the imagination - Norman Bergrun confirms the information of that Lockheed Martin scientist on the Cassini mission:
Here is an interview of Norman Bergrun by Project Camelot, but the presentation above is a better overview. In this interview, Norman Bergrun mentions he was approached by a NASA specialist who was surprised he had found the things they tried to cover up by altering the photos slightly.
Norman Bergrun concludes that these are electromagnetic cylindrical vehicles. One odd activity he describes in detail in Ringmakers of Saturn is that these vehicles seem to be producing large electric fields that course through some of the moons of Saturn. He theorizes that this activity helps cause the core of the moon to heat considerably producing a molten constituency. Why so? They may be implementing something only some futurists have imagined: planetary terraforming. Recently, Cassini has observed underwater oceans on multiple moons of Saturn - including Titan. Heating the interior of the moon could help produce an underground habitat as well. At this point, this quote from Arthur C. Clarke seems quite fitting:
…we cannot predict the new forces, powers, and discoveries that will be disclosed to us when we reach the other planets or can set up new laboratories in space. They are as much beyond our vision today as fire or electricity would be beyond the imagination of a fish.
In solving a minor mystery in Swedenborg's writing we have now come across a bigger mystery. Perhaps most people would be comfortable to just assume that Swedenborg's accurate description of the rings of Saturn as snow-like particles reflecting light as a "lucky guess" - at a time when current thinking was that these rings were solid bands (see Extraterrestrial Contact, Emanuel Swedenborg and Christianity). He stated he was given this description by extraterrestrials from Saturn, who also said they were in contact with other extraterrestrials that habitually travel between solar systems. If we take his statement at face value, then either these extraterrestrials lived on one of the moons or in a spacecraft near the rings of Saturn. Completely independent from Swedenborg, a well-accredited scientist discovers huge extraterrestrial vehicles frolicking around in the rings of Saturn doing who knows what.
What are they doing there? We can surmise that among the many billions of stars, certain races have reached an advanced state of civilization, having overcome the evils of their lower nature where wars are completely unknown in their society. Having advanced to such a state, their civilization has outlived the habitat of their own planet, and have been forced to now live among the stars (see Stephen Hawking and the Janos Affair). Saturn provides many moons that are rich in mineral resources, and Saturn has a magnetosphere that protects against solar radiation.
It has been the habit of many to dismiss the theological revelations in the waking visions of Emanuel Swedenborg offhand because of his accounts of extraterrestrials. When I first encountered Swedenborg I could see that the revelations resolve many of the mysteries of God and Christianity that many still continually debate about. But his account of extraterrestrials was an utter puzzlement - it personally took me a while to overcome the skepticism on this matter. As the New Church doctrines concern universal laws of love and truth, it would be interesting to compare them to the "universal truths" of that mystery stranger that Jacques Bordas encountered.
Considering the zoological diversity of our planet, it could be this solar system is a common traveling point for many extraterrestrial races. Perhaps this is why God chose to become incarnate on our earth as Jesus Christ, so this event would become known elsewhere as well.
As the Father knows me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. (John 14:15-16)
