Slide 1: WELCOME TO ALIEN & UFO PRESENTATION © Arshpreet Singh, X-E Slide 2: ALIENs: TRUE OR FALSE? Made By Arshpreet Singh Wadehra, X-E Slide 3: Seeing strange objects in the sky is a universal phenomenon
Carl Jung suggests UFOs = spiritual/ religious archetype - perfection
Objects in sky always interpreted within language & metaphors of the age – gods, demons, angels, space ships
Today technology dominates our world: is that why we interpret UFOs as technological space craft? Historical Influences Made By Arshpreet Singh Wadehra, X-E 19th Century Sightings : 19th Century Sightings In 19th Century, precursors to both UFOs as technology camp, and aliens as spirit guides camp.
Nov. 1896- May 1997, Alabama to Michigan to California – “airships” sighted Cigar-shaped UFO over race-track, 1910 Cigar-shaped, propellers and/or wings, brightly lit, with people glimpsed inside
Often landed to make repairs, asking witnesses for wrenches and water.
Powered by “condensed electricity”
Estimated speed = 150 miles per hour; could fly against direction of wind, stop and start at will.
These sightings set pattern for 20th century sightings Made By Arshpreet Singh Wadehra, X-E Slide 5: Helene Smith
Traveled in trance to Mars
Points in common between Smith’s experience and other 19th & early 20th C. Contactee experiences: 19th Century Extraterrestrial spirit guide Took place in our solar system (Mars, Venus, Moon, etc.)
Took place via psychic means (trance, astral travel, seances)
Communication with extraterrestrials via telepathy
Message of Extraterrestrials is metaphysical
These contacts set pattern for later 20th century contacts. Made By Arshpreet Singh Wadehra, X-E Slide 6: When were flying
