The “visitors” whom retired U.S. Army Sergeant Clifford Stone describes are “three dimensional” in the sense of being more alive and humanly genuine than the rote expectations with which they are frequently portrayed. These “visitors” for him are real persons, not robotic-like conscious minds that have no similarities with human understandings. Nevertheless, he also describes a variety of these entities including his early life friend “Corona”. They can be greenish (and less believable if described due to the “little green men” cliché phrase); they can be indistinguishable from “us” (“us” referring to who? white Nordic humans because if they had been like the “Negritos” from the Philippines or like the pigmies from Congo would they have still been considered “like us”?). Apparently, according to Stone, some are types of “greys” and some are not but, interestingly, he says that all of them have what could be termed an “alter dimensional” aspect. This is particularly valid for me who after years of considering how might ET “visitors” generally operate think that a key lies in being able to interact with what in simple, colloquial terms could be called the “Astral World.” I think that “they” can come from different universes or “coherent molecular spaces” (as mentioned in Sergeant Stone’s interviews) which have different degrees of interaction with the Astral (or Subtle) World whose objective exteriors causally respond to subjective input. The more fused or actively related with the Astral World a physical universe might be, the more flexible and “unphysical” and the more subjectively responsive it might also be.

Since this essay recognizes Sergeant Stone’s emphasis upon friendship I’m going to join the ranks calling him a “friend” (a friend of humanity and by extension of mine) and refer to him as “Clifford.” Clifford’s friend Mr. Joseph Zeromski states that some of the “visitors” are “mischievous” and at the same time he also expresses that they are more spiritually evolved. Perhaps understanding the inner workings of the living Kosmos and being able to apply this understanding in their lifestyles and technologies may in some sense for some be equivalent to thinking about all of these beings as more “spiritually evolved.” Perhaps even an evil entity could be understood like this from a limited human perspective focused upon denser physical matter. However, entities with a practical reach into the Astral World might not necessarily have the same intentions of the kindest persons on Earth. It might mean that they understand more and operate more under some shared rules whether under their own enthusiasm or by a forced need to do so.

Both Clifford and Joseph Zeromski mention or imply that friendship is not only possible with extraterrestrial entities but desirable. They also say that people normally tend to ask the wrong questions in relation to ETS, for instance mostly thinking in terms of technologies that can be turned into weapons and not thinking in terms of the personal, cultural and social lives of the “visitors.” I agree as understanding the cultural, social, psychological and spiritual dimensions of the “visitors” should be of paramount importance to establish a solid, long-term relation with them and to better understand our own history and role in the living Kosmos. Clifford speaks of variety and complexity in relation to extraterrestrials and that, typically, persons involved in UFO research may only be dealing with the “tip of the iceberg.”

Clifford also tells us that, after his son died under strange coincidences/circumstances (not likely related to a military operation) and after he was taken out of his physical body by his ET friend Corona to visit his departed son (he would only remember the encounter with his son before the definitive threshold separating the low-physical Astral World from what could be called “Heaven” or a full-fledged, more enlightened level in that Astral World), he heard and saw an evil shadow “face” who told him that they could kill him if they wanted to. This was followed by another voice that said that he was not to be killed. Were these entities “extraterrestrials” or were they some of the spiritual entities behind the main “good vs. evil” dramas played on Planet Earth? Are they attempting to pull the strings in disfavor of the highest potentials of the human world? I have a feeling that they are of the latter category and remember that in the Bible is the admonition that our real enemies are not of this world.

The SOM-101 Manual referred to by Clifford and other alleged official instructions to deal with the “visitors” mention guidelines such as “official denial,” “discredit witnesses,” “deceptive statements,” “securing an evidence area out of those without a need to know” and managing a “press blackout.” Well, this probably means that persons with the same level of consciousness as the average “out of the loop” citizen are following the basic reaction to a threat. Acting as society’s “superego” under the systems permission the denial of those “in the loop” is imposed upon the non-military, or upon the “out of the loop” collective majority which, after all, for the most part at this stage of the game seems to prefer not to know or to deny the facts by turning UFO ET issues into jokes. With this attitude, the personal (First Person Subjective), cultural (Second Person Relational) and the social (Third Person Systemic) “dimensions” of any real, living being are relegated to non-issues and the typical perspective on extraterrestrial entities (whether from those in the know and those not in the know) becomes easily trivialized and “mono dimensional.”

In this fashion the “visitors” are normally experienced as OBJECTS and not as conscious, feeling, experiencing entities as alive as we are. Then, since the human mind can theorize and remain distant or uninvolved from a Third Person perspective it becomes easier to handle or manage the “visitors” without commitment and essential subjectively felt respect much as civilians of an enemy country are easily bombed from an airplane when soldiers are given a theoretical reason by authorities.

Interestingly, Clifford’s preparation for the job he experienced with the “visitors” started in childhood and apparently an Air force Captain “in the know” coincided with him and this led to his eventual recruitment into a secret ET research program. Could it be that Clifford had a life as an ET and that he made the agreement to assist in the human-ET relation during our era? However it was, Clifford’s “preparation” seems to have involved personal and immediate family members and social relations in which some of the ETS participated since his early childhood. In other words, it involved more aspects of a real self-conscious, intelligent, feeling being’s “dimensions” of reality and not just the distant, Third Person, theoretical style. This is probably why he was utilized by the military to communicate with the ETS and why he was tolerated when infringing some otherwise strict rules as when he liberated a “visitor” guest who felt more like a prisoner.

I would say that Clifford’s preparation was not only personal and social but also “integral” as it involved all of his being. I would also say that some of this preparation involved the “visitors’ using collective unconscious symbols such as when allegedly an ET impersonates someone else during Christmas and asks him if he wants to go to see the “boogey man” (this reminds me of Whitley Strieber’s experiences that also seem to relate with eliciting universal fears). When Clifford allegedly saw and heard a grey type of alien laughing with a “hellish laugh” and making a “crackling sound” he seems to have been not just connecting with the ET “visitor” but with this entity eliciting a direct experience with something in a collective unconscious “imaginal” realm, (a realm that might materialize or become experientially available in a physical sense under certain circumstances as Carl Jung hinted). For some reasons the reality of humans interacting with many ET visitors often takes on dreamlike-but-physical emotionally charged, symbolic characteristics. Are they interested in peeking unto some of Man’s raw creative powers?

As part of his “preparation” from childhood, Clifford also inevitably saw things against his conscious will and found that no one would listen or taken him seriously with few exceptions (his childhood friend Delbert Hudson apparently got to see some entities as well). Also, as part of his preparation to be a liaison between ETS varieties and humans he joined the Army and prepared as a military man and a patriot. He was trained in special operations to recover devices that fell on the ground and which could be potentially dangerous but had to be transported to a secure place. Nonetheless, in addition to this he must have also been trained to work on a regular job (as he states) because not every day important technological devices fall from the sky.

Clifford then, much later in life and, apparently only after the tragedy of his son’s early demise gained enough wisdom to decide to speak out in public (even perhaps against his sense of loyalty and conditioning to the military) so that other citizens would learn more of the truth. His son’s death could be considered as a “preparation” for his public role in disclosure events that followed extending his reach to a much wider group (perhaps from all potential U.S. citizens to all humans).

There’s a moment in Clifford’s 2001 Disclosure Project declaration in which he simply states that “visitors from other planets are coming here to this planet” but after reading into this straightforward and simple statement, I would say that they might be doing so not just physically (or interactive with our particular “space-time”) but also “internally” through dimensions of existence that respond or obey to our wills. In fact, how our minds affect what C. Jung and physicist W. Pauli understood as called the “imaginal” worlds may be important not just to us (when sometimes these “imaginal “worlds materialize in an objective and-or experiential way) but particularly important to the visitors whose “molecular spaces” or physical universes may be more integrated with the Astral or Subtle Realm than ours. In other words, our “astral” creative capacities may also be of great importance to them.

William F. Hamilton III (whom I consider a very good, intelligent researcher with an ample understanding on many UFO matters) brought up the issue of pre-physical “potentials.” In chapter four of his “Alien Magic,” a chapter dealing with “UFO Crashes in the Desert” William Steinman is said to have discovered that a Dr. R.I. Sarbacher suggests (in relation of a crashed or recovered ET craft) that “The activation of an electrical potential is believed to be the primary power to the reactor, though it is only a theory at present.” Well, in my view, if this “electric potential” refers to a more primary energy-as-information potential, a kind of “field” which is non vectorial, he may referring to a pre-physical element that co-exists with the Astral World or Subtle Realm as a structured information subset derived from it. I think that as exopoliticians we must reach out into this “Astral World” in order to understand many of the scientific and personal interests of our ET “visitors” and-or “friends.”

Clifford mentions that knowledge of humans surviving bodily death is important, implying that it also is scientifically and experientially important and useful for the “visitors.” This is an issue that should also be significant to exopoliticians and UFO researchers, not just because of its relation with ET technology, but because to understand the ET mindset and who we are in relation to them and to the Kosmos (in fact, in order to “enlighten up” our emerging world culture) we need to understand our implicit and explicit roles in “otherworldly” matters at large. In fact, survival research in general as much as hyper physics, free energy and the like should be more than fitting for well-rounded exopoliticians.

After a clear UFO sighting with multiple witnesses within 300 feet in the Peruvian coastal town of "Chilca" in 1975, I participated with the Mission Rahma contact group and befriended several contactees from this and other contact efforts. I also researched many aspects of the UFO phenomenon for several decades and feel inclined to contribute in the confluence of philosophical and scientific perspectives.
