I was originally inspired by a timothy Good 'Radio One' interview, in which he describes a telepathic
contact experience that he had in the late sixties. I decided to try a similar experiment myself in 1991. I
was waiting for a train in Charing Cross railway station in London, and I thought it may be a good time
to try and contact these beings who are said to live among us incognito.
I asked the question in my mind "If there are any
beings from elsewhere, within the vicinity of Charing
Cross station could you please come and prove it?".
After concentrating for around half an hour, I boarded
my train and thought nothing more of it. I noticed
that the carriage was full being the height of rush
hour. I felt that it was strange that no one standing
was interested in sitting down in the available seat
directly opposite me by the window.
Just before the train departed a man entered the train
from my left and e sat in the seat in front
of me. I noticed that he was dressed in a tan coloured
suit and tie with a matching attache case. He was
around six foot three, had short blond hair brushed
back, blue eyes and had a Swedish appearance. Although
I had made no connection that he was one of these
beings at this time, I noticed that he was acting
strangely by observing the other people on the train.
He even at times turned around to look at the other
people seated behind.
He then leaned forward and started to observe his own
hands, which I also felt was unusual. It was at this
point that it occurred to me that he may be one of
these "Beings". So I asked the question "If you are a
being from elsewhere, please place your right index
finger on the right side of your nose?".
As soon as I had telepathically asked the question, he
responded by doing just that. Very slowly and
carefully placing his finger on his nose, holding it
there for some time, before lowering it. I asked if he
could do various other gestures to confirm if he was
from elsewhere, but he did not respond to this. The
only other time that he responded in exactly the same
way, was when I asked if he "Was one of the beings
responsible for the crop circle phenomenon?".
As the journey approached it's end, I was thinking
that "I am not convinced that you are from elsewhere,
as you could have been placing your finger on your
nose by coincidence". He immediately responded to this
with apparent frustration. This reaction in itself
seemed far more convincing than the initial
experiment. I then asked the question again in my
mind, "If you are from elsewhere then please tap on
your attache case three times?". With both hands on
his attache case, he slightly shook his head, and then
started to tap with both hands firmly, once...
twice... three times.He paused for a moment, tapped
again once... twice... three times. Then once again
paused, then tapped once... twice... three times
finally. Three sets of three in total. He then turned
and stared directly at me.
Up until this point I had not established direct eye
contact with him, but had little choice but to stare
back at this point. As I did so I noticed that his
face was symmetrically perfect, his eyes slightly
slanted and pale blue with flecks of violet in the
irises. His cheek bones were high set. I began to
realize the enormity of the experience for the first
time as I stared into the man's eyes. I was thinking
about trying to speak verbally with him, but then
after about twenty seconds my train arrived at the
stop. Due to being somewhat stunned by the experience,
I broke the stare and continued to gather my port
folio and depart from the train. I remember hearing
him behind me sounding frustrated again.
Once I returned home I decided to make a detailed
drawing of the man in portrait and profile. I also
wrote down on the sheet of paper as many details as
possible of the experience. Within moments of doing
this I began to realize that the paper that I had had
moments before, was gone. I searched around me but
found nothing, I started to search all around the
house even though I had no recollection of leaving the
seat. To this day I have not found the paper. It is
worth noting that I am a portrait artist, and the
likeness was very close.
A few months later in what I believe is a related
experience, I saw a craft. One evening I needed a tool
from my garage. At the tool box I noticed something
moving in the corner of my eye in the evening sky. I
first thought that it may have been a bat, so I walked
outside the garage to have a better look. Low in the
sky I witnessed a large oval shaped object, around one
hundred feet across. It was moving like an insect, and
this in fact was the only thing I had ever seen that I
could compare it to. The object had an upper section
in blue a row of circular windows across the middle.
The lower half was an orange colour, and I could
clearly see a red pulsating light attached to its
underside. The craft was translucent, it had a
brightness to it and was semi transparent. After a few
seconds it moved at an incredible speed across to my
left field of view, I would say that it appeared to be
about half a mile away. It suddenly stopped dead, and
then became brighter in contrast. It became solid, and
then continued to become brighter until there was a
flash of light and it had disappeared. It basically
appeared to show characteristics of an
After these experiences I have had a great number of
psychic phenomenon, including other sightings. Overall
it left a deeply profound spiritual impression upon
me. I share this with you for what it is worth.
...For anyone interested in this phenomenon I read a article by researcher Meiron Hughes which directly relates to the type of encounter that I had, in fact the only one I could find but it is truly accurate in describing these rare experiences. I have pasted the article here should it be of interest to anyone else who like me is searching for information relating to this type of personal encounter, as this article is no longer available to read on the net I had to contact Meiron years later who kindly sent me the text below...
"Amongst the plethora of UFO sighting and alien abduction stories, and of Grey Aliens, Hammerhead Aliens, Reptilians etc., there is one very common experience of contact that for years has been going largely unnoticed by the burgeoning UFO investigation and publishing industry. The vast majority of these contactees do not report or publicize their experience; the contacts are with beings who appear to look just like us; and thousands of these contacts could be taking place globally and unnoticed each year in mundane, public and seemingly ridiculous openness. There is an indication that these aliens are perhaps living and working towards their own agenda, right in amongst us.
So why are these thousands of contacts unreported? And how can we know that these "human-types"(sometimes referred to as "talls" or "nordics") are actually extraterrestrial?
The answers are complex. Firstly, despite a profound effect that the experience has on the contactee, it appears to be a very personal, private and almost sacrosanct experience that the contactee feels instinctively should not be divulged. Secondly, the experiences generally occur in mundane and public locations such as hotel lobbies, airports, bus and rail stations and sometimes out in secluded country areas.
There are common, identifiable denominators to these human / human-alien contacts: 1) The contact appears to be initiated somehow by the contactees themselves. 2) There is a telepathic element used by the alien to help the contactee confirm that it is an extraordinary event. 3) The physical appearance of these "visitors" at close quarters reveals that they are in fact very different to us in a number of subtle ways. 4) The experience has a profound and often "life changing" influence on the contactee - they have had confirmation that something which could not possibly be real is in fact true.
The key elements, sometimes referred to as "the keys" by these contactees, are within those denominators, and are generally kept secret by the contactee.
This "secrecy" obviously means it is difficult for any investigator to report this type of experience with any sense of meaning to a wider world. One of the causes of this attitude is that compared with the mass of dramatic contact and abduction stories circulating on the web and published en-mass in the UFO books, the contact incidents seem somehow mundane and even trivial. The contactee feels that although he or she has experienced a truly remarkable event - contact with an extraterrestrial life-form that looks just like us, and who are moving largely unnoticed amongst us - the experience will have no value to anyone else because the only way to prove it is to have experienced it. They decide that there is little point reporting the contact as nobody else will ever believe it. There is, however, a growing tendency by some of these contactees to give out clues and hints of these experiences that they know will only be recognized by others who have
shared similar events.
UFO investigators sometimes offer these clues in their books, and also, as in the case of Timothy Good, perhaps gives us an insight into why Tim Good, who was a leading musician with a Symphony Orchestra, suddenly abandoned that career to become a UFO investigator. In 1967 Good was in New York for a series of concerts with the London Symphony Orchestra. He already had an interest in the UFO phenomenon and had spoken to many witnesses during his travels around the world. A rare percentage of these witnesses had given him accounts of contact by human types in mundane surroundings, and the telepathic nature of the way in which the contact was "invited". A skeptical Tim Good decided to try an experiment during a moment of boredom while he was waiting in the lobby of the Park Sheraton Hotel. He describes "sending out a telepathic request" and how contact was made within minutes. He gives very few details and sums it up thus: "As far as I am concerned
the experiment was a success. It is not the sort of experiment that would meet the approval of radio astronomers. I believe that it was intended as personal proof and encouragement for me, and, as such, was of no value to others." Good carefully avoids describing his contact and in his books gives an occasional clue about "protecting the keys". These two elements - the mundane almost casual account of the contact; the separate and seemingly unconnected references elsewhere to "protecting the keys" - are recognition signals for others who have had identical experiences.
There was also a NASA scientist who made the mistake of revealing his experience to his employers. He was forced to flee the United States with his family and assumed a new identity in Europe. He was interviewed by BBC Radio in 1991 in a programme about which the interviewer and journalists at the BBC made evident during and after the interview that they considered this Scientist's story as reliable, remarkable and "earth shattering". They were perhaps disappointed that the interview never made it to the mainstream news and was only broadcast in the early hours of the morning.
Then there is the case of author Mike Bloom, who had one of these experiences in 1992. He was then a trade union negotiator. His contact occurred while he was waiting for a train after an important meeting in a British city. It had such a profound effect upon him, leaving him with a deep rooted sense that he "had a task to perform", that his career floundered. There were also follow-up experiences, which he describes as "downloads" of a "telepathic, but apparently "subliminal" nature. He also has a perhaps naive faith that the experiences arising from his contact are beneficial to him.
The nearest he has come to revealing the details of his contact to a wider audience, is in a fictional book, "The Selected", in which he projects a mix of possible negative and positive consequences for humanity arising from what he knows.
Just why Bloom chose to place his novels with such an obscure web-based publisher is beyond me, but apparently perfectly logical to him. The Selected, it is reported, has not been submitted to even one mainstream publisher. His publishers guard his real identity carefully and Bloom will only communicate by e-mail (a form of contact that I was able to establish via his publisher). He admits that the main character in The Selected goes through events that occurred in his real life and that he has scattered clues to "the keys" throughout his book. But he refuses to be specific about the keys, stating, "the experience was personal, and would be of no value to anyone else. Spelling out the "keys" might result in them being used by frauds and hoaxters. Others who have met the "other guys" will recognize my account if they read it, and there is a certain amount of carefully worded communication between contactees going on. I always welcome hearing from
others and the big question in my mind is: "what, if anything, are we going to do in response to this knowledge?"
