They are NOT Humans Stop Thinking of Them That Way



They are NOT Humans Stop Thinking of Them That Way

When it comes to alien life forms that may co exist in this universe with human earthlings one major issue seems to be a huge disconnect for the humans. That disconnect is that humans seem determined to give other life forms , other alien species human qualities when the truth may be they are nothing like us in any shape form or way of thinking. Aliens may have completely different views of good and bad as well as what is right or wrong. Aliens may not live or reproduce in family groups or see anything wrong in eating things we find unthinkable just as we have no problems eating cows, pigs , chickens and fish. My point is we seem to insist in trying to give them qualities like compassion and wanting to be helpful towards us  when that may be the furthest thing from their minds. 

Over the years I have tried to no avail to explain to my fellow humans that they may end up extremely shocked or disappointed in what they one day find out regarding alien life forms due to their own insistence that aliens have human qualities.

Mankind give aliens similar body shape and size to aliens. They think many aliens are able to walk around with ease in our environment and atmosphere.  In my thinking this may be a HUGE error in thinking that aliens may have human cultural attributes. I think we are wrong on most of our thinking and that thinking is what keeps us delusional and kept in the dark ages about the large varied  population of the cosmos.

The first thing to think about is that the amount of different life forms possible in this universe  may be as endless . I am sure from bug like bodies to reptile and fish forms alien life  exists having intelligence all through the cosmos.

There may be gas forms of life that take energy from other gas forming factors on planets we do not even realize exist out there or beings of pure energy that have no true body shape. There may be thinking life forms that are plant in form and absorb there energy needs as well as forms of life we are not capable of even imagining as we have nothing like it on our planet.



There very well maybe many aliens with like us in body shape and texture or makeup to humans meaning two arms two legs one head and large brains that does not mean that aliens have anything at all past that in common with humans on earth.

I have had countless conversations during my years connected with the paranormal unknowns where I have tried to explain to my fellow humans that it is a huge mistake to continue to think of aliens with human thinking.

I am sure that those who are able to conquer traveling space and time have about as much in common with us as we would to cavemen or the life forms that lived on our planet before the humans of today came in to existence. 

I am confused why  human beings  think aliens think like we do. We do not seem to understand that what we may consider good or evil may be nothing at all like what an alien may consider good or evil or even if they have concepts of good or evil. 



I often wonder why so many humans feel that aliens are going to be the answer to our problems be it war or health issues or saving our planet.  Aliens have been here most likely longer than we have yet I do not see where they have contributed to these things unless it would somehow interfere with their own agendas for being here. In the past I do think it possible alien life forms did visit and did teach us or build structures on our planet but honestly I think it was for their own use and comfort or control of the humans living here at the time. I believe it was for their benefit not ours.

Aliens may not understand compassion or pain in the way humans do and we may not understand what is important to them or why. Humans may be far better off  letting  go of and stop insisting aliens contain human qualities and stop waiting for them to react to us or what happens on this planet in human terms. Aliens are not humans  Stop waiting for them to act like us. look like us and think like us..... they are not human.

Before you spend another second of time trying to force alien beings in to possessing the qualities of a  human  think first about the differences in the life forms on our own planet.




On earth in many western nations the divorce rate is 50 percent.  However in the animal kingdom on this planet we have many animals that mate for life like Gibbon apes, wolves,
coyotes, barn owls, beavers. bald eagles and swans to mention a few. Obviously we do not share this attribute with our fellow earth dwellers. Mating or even family or reproduction may not be anything like we have ever known  yet we like to imagine aliens with babies and caring families.

The praying mantis, black widow spider, and jumping spider are among a number of species that devour their mates. Sexual cannibalism is also found in other invertebrates, including a relative of the praying mantis, the Chinese mantis, and scorpions. Cannibalism has also been noted among South American green anacondas — the largest snakes in the world.''


Plants do not eat they Photosynthesis-which is the process by which plants convert energy from the sun.  I am sure it is possible that intelligent forms of life may have developed in some way like plants taking energy from the environment and do not eat or reproduce as animal life forms do. We need to  think about the  endless possibilities and should stop thinking along the lines that aliens are like us in any shape or form.


Look at jellyfish, along with all known Coelenterates]that have two nerve nets of "wires" which simply inform muscles to contract when the animal is upside down, just like our inner ears. They would tell the animal where the surface is by either gravity or light detection. . Nerve centers in some animal groups control area of their bodies, like the segments of an earthworm.  Earthworms actually have two large nerve centers or brains which help (1) the gut to maintain its digestive sequence and (2) the senses from the skin to coordinate the animals external musculature and movement.  . Who are we to say that in another space and place that form of life continued to become intelligent and productive life forms by evolving down a different path keeping many basic body structures as well as adding others to find intelligence in another way we do not understand.



All of these things make me wonder why we spend so much time discussing and waiting for the strange unknown alternate life forms we see visiting this planet to be like us and not more like an emotionless robot or giant ant that have long ago developed the intelligence to technically travel space however may have also held on to their own culture and ways of life . To think that aliens  think , live or believe or can feel as we do is a huge assumption.  The problem when we assume things  is that it often ends up making an ass of you and me!






Do not waste your time thinking aliens are here for your benefit or to end all our problems. If that were the case they would have done so long ago. I am sure there are aliens who mean us no harm or who would step in if we needed help however I also know there are many different forms of alternate life forms visiting our planet and with them come many different reasons for being here.

You may have species that understand love and compassion along with family and emotions as well as those who have no idea or understanding of any of those things and react as a insect or reptile would to situations. Bugs work often in lock step in large groups that protect feed and keep their colonies together. They do not care if they are devouring your skin or bite you until you are nearly dead as it is what they do if they come across what they need near their habitats. A life form that developed from that type of species may approach other life forms in the same manner and not think anything of it,

A reptile shows little or no heart as far I can see. If it is hungry it grabs whatever is near and swallows it whole. If it needs to reproduce it grabs what is ever near and takes care of that as well.  I do not think a loving kind human way of thinking could easily develop from that kind of nature.  All of these things have to be taken in to consideration

However with all of that said that is not what you hear  when humans talk about aliens or why they are here. I hear reasoning that is human in context . People try to give them our qualities our reasons our wants our needs and our desires and even fears. You can not do this as one more time I will tell you ALIENS ARE NOT HUMANS STOP THINKING OF THEM THAT WAY!

I do believe that the balance of good and bad light and dark may carry along with all things in this universe as well as every level of these things that exist between the two.








I am sure there are aliens that are filled with kindness and compassion as I am sure there are others that would reach over and bite your head off if hungry and not see a problem with it. Like life on this planet life across the universe comes in many shapes and forms with many ways of living and many standards for what is right or wrong. It will be our dismay and our ignorance to these facts that will be our outcome if we continue to give and insist that aliens follow , think.  live or behave as we do. Aliens are NOT humans stop trying to hold them to human feelings , compassion , culture or life style as all that will do is leave you incredibility shocked and disappointed when it does not turn out they have any of those qualities.


On top of all of the varied life forms that  most likely fill our cosmos there is the added possibility that there are many forms of life that have combined with machines or robots making them half machine half biological life forms and others simply robots that have long ago taken over once living life forms. All of these options are possible many probable .

The main thing for us is to realize that what we do not know what is out there and it is  important we open our minds to all possible things so that when we start to deal with the other forms of life in our universe we are able to absorb and understand what we may be facing in a logical ready manner and not remain closed minded which will only keep us stunted and unable to cope with what may come our way.

BELOW FIND Orbs and Chemtrails Coming Soon to Your Area!



May 28th visit Chris with Spaced out Radio


**************************************************************** 



It never seems to fail that when I am the most overwhelmed with things that I need to do something incredible just walks in and dumps on my lap. April 28th was one of those days;

I was sitting at my desk trying to catch up on some work when I opened my Face Book page to check to see if I had remembered to post something . As soon as I opened my page a message dropped open from one of my Face Book friends Judi Giramonti who is the host of Darkness Within Radio show that can be found in a Face Book search.  Judi sent me  a few photos she had just taken while out on a day trip to Cliffs Shaft Mine Museum

Judi was thinking about doing some research at the mine as it is known  to be haunted. Judi spent the day taking pictures of the area  when she noticed something odd in the sky that was moving over the Mine area as she took her photos. She sent me the pictures which I immediately noticed was of a sky filled with feathered long chemtrails along with a strange looking cloudy Orb looking sort of gas like craft slowly moving over the Old Mine location.

 I thought it was all very odd and did think it looked to be some type of Orb like plasma filled craft that may have had some connection to the chemical spraying going on over the sky that day. I told Judi what I thought and kept the photos as I wanted to add them to my collection of Orbs. I wanted to add these new photos of Judi's talem at tje  Old Mines location in  Ishpeming Michigan. The date Judi took the photos of the odd craft was April 27th 2015




That night of April 28th my sister called me to ask if I had seen the article in the New York Post Newspaper about the UFO sighting over the Bronx New York. She said many people had witnessed a large Orb like UFO over the Bruckner Expressway area and someone had been able to snap a photo of the object. My sister brought over the article for me and I was shocked at once at the similarities to what Judi had just seen at the Old Mine.


When I read the New York Post Newspaper article and looked at the photo that was taken of the event at the Old Mine it was clearly very similar to the object and sky that was captured by Judi. The sky was covered with chem- trial activity all over the New York sky plus the photo also displayed a gaseous Orb like craft crossing the skyline 

  The article reported witnesses calling in a flying spaceship over 14th Street and  Bruckner's Expressway about 630 PM as well as another report calling in a large fire ball swooshing across the sky. Another call reported a group of bright lights crossing the night sky at incredible speed about 11; 30 PM from a man looking at the sky while on the roof of his Bronx Apartment building, It was very interesting  the way both sightings looked so much alike as well as the fact both obviously were flying in skies covered with chemical  spraying clearly seen feathering out across the sky. The  most interesting fact is that both events and photos were taken on the same day which was April 27th 2015.

I think it is clear that now that with the warmer weather returning it is also time for us to pay attention to the sky and what is happening over our heads as we go about the business of everyday life, It is clear that the unknown crafts that fly our skies are not only still there they seem to be making no attempt not to be seen, Pay attention to your surrounding and use common sense protecting yourself and those around you if you do encounter something you do not understand keep your distance , take a photo if possible and quickly find other people to support your safety and add to those who can confirm what you are seeing,   





April  27th 2015

Mother Ships or Simply the Right Size for the Occupants





I was talking with a friend of mine whom I have known since the third grade. We were talking about the changes that have taken place on Long Island New York over the last 50  years. We were discussing the days when we had only one highway to drive to the end of Long Island in order to reach Montauk Point . The Montauk Point area is  also  the location  of Plum Island and Camp Hero. During the 1940's until recently both were active extremely strange institutions of secret ominous activates with long lists of odd events happening for many years following World War II. Long Islanders considered them dangerous if not evil places.

My friend and I were talking about our life on Long Island when we were teens  in the early 60 s  around  1963  to 65. Those years were a  time when  Long Island was having numerous UFO sightings being reported. My father had been told during that  time period  that a few people in our town had seen a group of UFOs a  over a town golf course which was still being talked about by all the local people when a few sightings came along of people witnessing large UFO;s flying low over Great River which ran out in to the Great South Bay and on to the Atlantic Ocean.. All of these  sightings were still the talk of the town when this next event took place.   One night.my Dad read  aloud after dinner as the family still was sitting at the kitchen table  from the Long Island Press (which was a favorite newspaper on Long Island at the time) an article describing how hundreds of Long Islanders traveling along the Sunrise Highway ( which was the only main highway that was used to travel to then end of Long Island in that time period) had called in to the local police reports of an enormous UFO traveling low  over  Sunrise Highway as it traveled out towards the end of Long Island towards the Atlantic Ocean. 

The people who witnessed this huge craft insisted it was at least a half a mile if not bigger in circumference. The people who saw this huge craft all reported the same details of a enormous oval craft slowly hovering over the highway at times as it made its way in silence following the highway below out to the end of the roadway frightening those who were traveling under it on the highway lanes. It followed the roadway to its end and continued on towards the end of Long Island and the Atlantic Ocean.


There were no offerings of what it could have been in the article or comments other than the description of this huge metallic shinny windowless  craft and the mention of  many other UFO sightings being reported over Long Island during that time.

I have often had that event flash through my mind over the years when I learned of other sightings of huge unexplained crafts being reported from all over the world. These huge crafts seemed to have taken on the name of  Mother Ships.

I thought about this and wondered if we have this correct in our thinking or if we simply are missing another explanation to the enormous size of these unknown crafts thinking they are something they are not. 

 It is true that the enormous size of the crafts many have witnessed over the years may well be main carriers of large populations of other life forms and their equipment and living areas or there is one other strange idea that could explain there massive size.  It may sound simplistic but why could the difference in size of UFO.s simply be an indication of the different sizes of the aliens traveling in them?

How many times have we been told of history that talks  to us about giants walking on the earth? How many times have the idea of extremely tall beings being seen over history have we come across in our search for answers to our past and understanding of our possible futures.?

I really thought about this when I came across the reported incident where our astronauts were reported to have had an encounter with a huge space man that was so large and tall that they had to open the cargo bay of the space shuttle so he could stand towering over our men in the open cargo bay in order to have a meeting with them



There is no reason at all to think that other life forms in this enormous universe are similar in size to the humans on earth. In fact there is no reason to think that they are like us at all in any way shape or form. I think we should consider that shape, size and form of those who may visit this planet may be anything from bug size to building size and all things in between.

I now wonder in pure fascination what may pilot those enormous crafts and can only keep my mind open to the endless possibilities that could exist inside those metallic walls from huge populations of aliens to simply huge aliens!



outrageous to us howver from another large planet beings may not only
grow to 20 feet but larger , all these things we are yet to understand.





The above is a shocking image but gives us the idea that aliens 
may not look in body like anything we ever imagined

    Aliens may be the size of POLAR BEARS: Formula calculates extraterrestrials have a mass of 650lbs (if they exist, of course)

    • Fergus Simpson said aliens probably weigh more than 650 lbs (300kg)
    • Calculations based on idea that there’s a minimum size for intelligent life
    • Larger aliens are more likely to live long enough to make advanced tech 
    • Estimated size doesn't factor in evolution or an alien planet's gravity 

    Aliens are often portrayed as diminutive beings, but in ‘reality’ they could be much larger and heavier than science fiction films suggest.
    Scientist Fergus Simpson has calculated the minimum size needed for intelligent life to survive, based on the laws of conservation of energy seen on Earth.
    And from this, he calculates that if intelligent extraterrestrials exist they will typically weigh 650lbs (300kg) - the median weight of a polar bear.

    Aliens (illustrated with a stock image) are often portrayed as diminutive beings, but in ‘reality’ they could be much larger, one scientist claims. Fergus Simpson from University of Barcelona applied a mathematical formula to assume aliens obey the same laws of conservation of energy as animals  on Earth

Fergus Simpson from University of Barcelona applied a mathematical formula to assume aliens obey the same laws of conservation of energy as animals on Earth
    Mr Simpson came to this conclusion by applying a mathematical formula that assumes aliens obey the same laws of conservation of energy as animals do on Earth. 
    This means that larger animals need more resources to survive, so are less common than plentiful ants, for example. 
    The cosmologist’s calculations are also based on the idea that there’s a minimum size needed for intelligent life, but don’t factor in an alien planet’s gravity.
    ‘Throughout the animal kingdom, species which are physically larger invariably possess a lower population density, possibly due to their enhanced energy demands,’ he wrote in a paper, published at arXiv.org.  



    He said there must be a minimum body size necessary for supporting intelligent life, based on the range of body sizes of intelligent animals such as apes and humans, found on Earth.
    ‘As a result, we should expect humans to be physically smaller than most other advanced species.’
    '...we conclude that most species are expected to exceed 300kg in body mass. The median body mass is similar to that of a polar bear.'
    He claims that just as it is on Earth, there are probably more small animals than larger ones in the universe, but that the larger a planet or biosphere the more likely it is to have evolved an intelligent species.
    Mr Simpson said there must be a minimum size necessary for supporting intelligent life, based on the range of body sizes of intelligent animals such as apes and humans, found on Earth. And, if they exist, he believes intelligent aliens typically weigh more than 650 lbs (300kg) - around the size of a polar bear (stock image)

    His argument follows that if clever aliens are large, there may be fewer of them, as they will likely live in a society with low population densities to ensure they have the resources they need.

    Commenting on the study, Duncan Forgan, a Research Fellow at the University of St Andrews, told NewsWeek: ‘I think the average size calculation is reasonable’.
    Seth Shostak, a researcher at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, added that it is not the first time scientists have suggested that aliens may be large, because big animals tend to live longer.
    A longer lifespan makes creatures potentially more likely to develop knowledge and invent technology needed to make contact with humans one day.
    Mr Simpson continued: ‘Higher intelligence enables the development of technologies which can sustain larger population sizes.’
    While the research has been described as interesting by Dr Shostak, he said ‘there’s no concrete data to work with’ and that Earth is being used as a model to predict what life looks like elsewhere in the universe – but aliens may be completely different.
    He pointed out that it is humans’ thumbs, bipedal stance and brains, rather than our bulk, that has enabled us to thrive on Earth, so body mass is only one indicator of intelligence.
    ‘Polar bears are large but do not write great literature and build radio towers and a lot of that is probably because they are walking around on all fours,’ he said.
    Mr Forgan also noted that the research doesn’t take an alien planet’s surface gravity into account.
    He explained that planets with stronger gravity might be expected to be home to smaller life forms than those with weaker gravity, which means that the calculation is incomplete.

    The Unknown/ Unexplained Encounters of the English Gentleman Brian BIrch



    http://endlessjrny.blogspot.com/

    I have the pleasure of sharing an ongoing correspondence with a lovely gentleman who lives in England. His name is Brian Birch.  Brian is presently 75 years old. Brian lives in England.

    Brian is a man who lived and lives  his life large and full. He has always been active and alive out doing and seeing, not a man who sits about and watches life on a small screen or from his window. Brian is one of those people who lives his life fully.

    Brain served his country as a Royal Marine which is a distinguished division of the United Kingdoms military. . He also was a boxer while in the Royal Marines making it clear that this man knows how to take care of himself and not the type to be fearful of things, in fact he is one of the men we all call when we are fearful of things!

    His life has been exciting, he has been married, three times and has children and grandchildren as well as a large extended family around him.

    I tell you these things about this man as he without question fits the pattern or profile of  people who seem to share personality traits with others who report encounters with the unexplained and unknown.

    Of course it is logical that those who are out in the world in touch with their surroundings are also the people who encounter strange events and see odd things. You are far more likely to experience more in life if you out living it rather than sitting it out hidden behind a screen or some kind of device too timid to actually go live life first hand. Those who experience the unknown  seem to be people who have open curious minds that connect with the realization they are witnessing or encountering something unexplained and unusual.

     I personally believe many people have been in the middle of strange events and simply did not pay attention or notice  what was going on around them.. Sadly many in our society walk around blind to the world around or above them instead living in locked small bubbles that prevent them from really living a full life. The difference between those who do and do not experience many unknowns may be that some people are not  controlled by techie devices and live aware of life around them not locked in closed off bubbles making them the people who encounter what truly is happening that many others choose to ignore.

    Brian Birch does not walk around or live his life in a protective blind bubble , Brian took life on at its level and in return life has shown him more of what exists, I think Brian was raised in a family of full living people and along with his brothers and nephews Brain has experienced many incredible encounters of the unusual yet very real kind
    I truly  enjoy communicating with this man as he is one of those people who has had a interesting full life filled with adventure and events that are interesting and far from the ordinary.

    Brian served his country in the Royal Marines which trained him to be a strong man fully capable of handling dangerous situations and difficult circumstances. I believe this special training maybe the reason he survived some of the odd encounters he has had during his life .

    Brian has written about the odd encounters of his life. I have decided to share his encounters with my readers exactly as Brian has shared them with me. Below you will find what Brain has told me  about a few of the odd events he encountered in his life. The first event he shared with me took place in 1959. Brain wrote:

     " In 1959 while serving with the Royal Marines I was travelling back from leave. I was travelling with my brother on his motorbike. My brother suddenly steered off on to the grass on the edge of a deep bowl shaped escarpment and cut the engine. 

     I asked my brother "problems?"  He replied "no, just thought to 'spend a penny' and take a breather".  It was a relief to get off the 'bike in respite of the bitter cold winter 'slipstream' as I was dressed in my summer clothes. I only otherwise possessed my uniform.  Our stop was albeit briefly intended.  Then, as we stood there looking across that bowl-shaped, scrub populated valley there when came to our ears a weird
    'musical' sound that 'rose and fell' and emanated from deep down in the lower part of the 'bowl shaped' escarpment  known as The Devil's Punchbowl. 

     Curious as to the origin of that truly weird 'musical' sound we decided to descend ,on our back-sides, down the steep descent into the Punchbowl.  What we encountered down there was an encounter of sheer terror when we came 'face to face' with two alien beings.

    The strange beings towered over us so closely  that had I wished- I could have touched them.  They 'floated' about 'two feet' or so above the ground and must have stood about 'ten to twelve feet' in height.  They wore elongated helmets.  One 'green' eye (or light) where you'd expect the eyes to have  been.  Sheer terror and panic seized me and I was temporarily paralyzed with the rush of adrenalin for a few seconds before being over taken by blind fear and terror and started to run frantically from them, unaware of where I was running to. 

     My brother and I were able to make it back to his motor bike and our escape. We did  not look back nor understand what it was that we felt was hanging over our heads or what was making the musical sounds during the event. We mounted Den's bike and rode away like the devil was in pursuit of us and we didn't stop until we reached the city outskirts of  Guildford .





    It was not to much later that my brother confessed that hundreds of red glowing eyes where in pursuit of me low about my legs as I retreated at a full run back towards my brother who was ahead of me and his bike that day . My brother told me at one point they seemed to over take and surround me as I made my way out of that Punchbowl and back to him and his bike. He has no idea how I ran through them without being taken down. His only concern was getting us back on that bike and making it scream with all it had out of the area of those eyes and those hovering giant beings. It was something we would never forget but not the last I would see of them.

    Life continued on however along with my time in the Royal Marines so did the strange encounters continue in my life

    On another  night in 1959 I was standing guard as a Royal Marine and patrolling the perimeter of the 'bivvy site' (bivouac site) along with another  fellow Marine. The Bivvy was  in a forest in Kent. . 

     On this night I did not patrol with the other Royal Marine I decided to split up  and I patrolled a different area to be on my own. 

     We carried .303 Lee Enfield' rifles with 'fixed-bayonets' as the area had known previous IRA attacks on military personnel to acquire rifles. The track we were to patrol was one-mile-long with water and petrol carriers at one end and the latrines at the other. I was 'elected' to patrol the latrine area as my 'buddy' had already set off to patrol the former in spite of our being expected to patrol in pairs in case of attack. 

    The path I was patrolling was well away from the 'bivvy area' and was bordered by a long stretch of high bushes, on the other side of which were large open fields. I was wearing 'battle order' which included SV boots (commando boots) with thick, hard rubber soles and which were 'noiseless' to aid 'stealth'.  As I stood at the latrines (a six feet deep trench dug out of the ground with a plank of wood spanning it and the area was lit by a brilliant hissing pressure' lantern).  As I walked slowly along the narrow track I suddenly sensed an 'electric field' that caused my hair to literally 'stand on end' and my whole body sensed something 'spirit like' in nature but decidedly malevolent was near.

    It was a haunted type of danger or warning feeling I was feeling. It was so intense in the area by the latrines that I hurriedly left that area altogether.  I could feel 'unseen eyes' riveted on me and certainly not human ones.  I headed off into the darkness to continue patrolling the track alongside the fields which I couldn't see into because of the dense, tall bushes bordering the track along which I patrolled.

    As I slowly patrolled this track, perhaps half a mile or more distant from the area that my 'buddy' was patrolling, I suddenly became aware of the sound of 'something' on the unseen 'other side' of those bushes.  Slow, ponderous and unbelievably heavy footfalls as 'something' walked noisily if casually along the other side of those high bushes.  

     I was puzzled.  How could anyone be so enormously heavy as to make that sound on what was a well trodden earthen trail?  The line of scrub ran for quite some distance, obscuring whatever it was walking so ponderously on the other side.  I hesitated to investigate.  My skin crawled.  I vividly recall that my inclination was to get out of there and make for the opposite direction back towards the bivvy area but I resolutely took a grip of myself and decided to overcome my fear, 'to do my duty' and to investigate. Was I not after all a Royal Marine? 

     I began to quietly follow, pacing quietly those clearly discernible footfalls along the length of track alongside the scrub separating me from 'whatever it was' on the other side.  I knew that some hundred yards (meters) or so further along there was a break in those dense bushes and that was where I would come 'face to face' with whatever it was.  I had to make a conscious effort to steel myself for whatever I would encounter.  Whatever it was must have 'weighed a ton' to make the ground tremble like that. But on two feet?  What in Heavens name could it be?  A dinosaur?  That thought crossed my mind.

    Shortly, I could just discern the 'opening' in the scrub ahead of me and gripping my rifle in an 'attack' position, my heart pounding, I quietly walked in time with those elephant like 'footfalls' and very soon I was approaching that opening in the bushes.

      As I came to that opening I leapt through it to confront whatever was the cause of those 'elephant like' footfalls and breaking the otherwise silence of that hour I barked loudly in a voice that would alert my sleeping Marine companions 'buried' in their bivvies. "Halt, who goes there?" 

     I was met with ominous silence and by nothing whatsoever 'elephant like' visible!  Bright moonlight lit-up that side of the tall scrub and revealed an immense size empty field of earth and sparsely short grass along the opposite side that track.  Perturbed now I walked alongside that 'other side', retracing my direction and searching the ground alongside those bushes . 

    For about fifty yards or so I retraced my steps on that opposite side to that which I had been patrolling.  To my surprise and admittedly some relief there was nothing visible to be seen. Yet my scalp and flesh crawled with the awareness of an unseen and almost malevolent presence.  Greatly disturbed I hastily retreated, retracing my steps yet found nothing.

     Unnerved by the experience and with hair 'crawling' I made my way quietly back towards the bivvy area and waited out my remaining time beneath a tree to await my relief, the time was about 1AM and I had an hour of my two-hour stag to go.  I told no one about my experience and back in my 'hole in the ground' with the bugs and spiders for company and still in full battle order including boots as was the custom, I allowed the blissfully, long awaited 'arms of oblivion' to overcome me before the hours of daylight all too quickly brought me back to the sobering, strenuous reality of Royal Marine training.

    My life outside of the marines consisted of the normal things people do. I got married and had children and enjoyed time with my family when ever possible. The odd events in my life continued with me as well.

    It was in 1964 that my brother James 'Jim' together with his young son also James (Jim junior) plus my brother's daughter Christine set out one night on a 'fifty mile plus' drive from where my brother and his family lived.  I was driving that night as we set out from Sandford near Crediton for Dartmoor.  We often visited that desolate moor for it's solitude and sometimes in order to 'fire off' our 'twelve bore' shotguns.  Shooting was a passion that my brother and I shared.  On this particular night we headed for Okehampton where we planned to join a narrow service road that would take us some nine miles onto the moor. 

     Our plan was to drive as far as was possible to a point where that road ended in a small 'roundabout' or 'doughnut' that was the only place where one could reverse the car to return to Okehampton. 

     The service road was just wide enough to  permit our car to drive along it and even then, the wheels would be very near to the edge of that service road which was a good 'eighteen inches' of concrete and proud of or 'above' the surface of the moor itself. 

    Dartmoor is very rugged with rocks and boulders strewn about, plus numerous deep pits spread about it's very boggy surface.  No wheeled vehicle would be able to leave that road to access that rough, wild terrain in fact.  Cattle have been known to disappear when venturing onto that moor and people too have met the same fate, swallowed by such bogs or swept away by the tumultuous river Dart following the frequent and sudden heavy rainfalls of which Dartmoor is infamous.  

    This particular journey was a sudden decision to attempt to reach notorious 'Cranmere Pool' which was situated well off that service road which would entail our having to park the car somewhere on that 'loop' then to travel on foot to reach our destination.

    Cranmere Pool was reported to be haunted by the ghost of a man who died there named 'Bengie'.  This was back many years hence of course and we subsequently discovered that the pool had long since dried up.  Whether we knew this as we set out I do not recall however we were determined to reach and to explore the area. 

     It was while driving across the moor from Okehampton that we noticed a circle of white light that silhouetted a tor (high rocky outcrop) like a halo. 

     The ground ahead of us and well up high above that narrow service road was quite some distant to us, in other words it was way ahead but up high on the steeply sloping terrain of the moor.  It was decidedly puzzling.  The light formed a perfect halo behind this tor and my first thought was that it might have been a helicopter but this thought was quickly dispelled as we drove nearer and there was no sound whatsoever of a helicopter which I knew from experience to be very noisy indeed in spite of the fact that we were still some distance from it. 

     As we began to shorten that distance towards that 'lit up' tor I felt a strong sense of apprehension, a creepy 'sixth sense' that we were driving somehow into a dangerous situation.  This 'sixth sense' had never failed me in the past and had in fact had undoubtedly in the past  saved my life.   

    I said nothing to my brother of my inner feelings but as we drew closer to that 'halo of light' behind that tor  that 'uncomfortable' feeling intensified.  I didn't want panic to spread among us and for one very real reason being the road was impossible for me to make a reverse turn. 

      It was a good eighteen inches above the boggy moor, far too deep a drop to permit the wheels of my car to access the surface of the moor.  I was intent thus upon looking for a place where maybe there was somewhere that we could indeed make a reverse-turn

     The minutes passed and as we were drawing closer to where we would be more or less directly opposite that tor so my trepidation increased and was then reinforced by my brother voicing that he 'had a bad feeling about continuing and that perhaps we should turn back?'  I didn't answer him but was driving slowly as I was too intent on looking for a spot where we could safely make that reverse-turn without the rear wheels falling off the concrete road. I had reduced speed as I searched.  Again, my brother suggested that we 'turn back'.  Maybe three times or more he repeated his warning before I 'exploded' in anger fuelled by fear and frustration that "I can't ***** well turn around, the road's too narrow and too high to reverse turn." 

     Jim then suggested he would get out to look for somewhere and I stopped the car to let him out. Still I said nothing.  Then it happened.  The tor was still ahead of and high above that narrow road we were travelling on.  Glancing up and ahead at the tor I saw something that turned my blood ice-cold.  I saw vast, countless numbers of 'pairs of red eyes' brightly lit like rear bicycle-lamps, all distinctly paired and moving at a terrific pace down from where that (undoubted) some kind of UFO sat behind that tor.

    A memory instantly surfaced as I stared at that vast hoard of 'red eyes', a memory of that horrific alien encounter, those two aliens down there in the bottom of the Devil's Punchbowl in early January Nineteen Fifty Nine.  I had not seen the 'red eyes' down in that 'Bowl' but Dennis had


    .  Now, up there on Dartmoor that memory of being with Den and his description of those 'red eyed' small aliens, returned to me.  Memory of the two large entities being with them was enough to put much fear into me as I watched the vast droves of 'red eyes' pouring down the steep slope from that tor.  That they were some distance ahead of us made me feel that we could safely outpace them in the car. I had now no option but to attempt that 'reverse turn'.

     The exact procession of events I have to admit are somewhat confusing but I feel that this description in pretty well close to actuality.  Reverse turning the car 'impossibly' off that narrow service road, Jim telling me it was 'ok to drive off the road onto the surface of the moor' which I deemed unworkable but with no further choice I reversed 'off' the road and the car fell onto it's chassis, the wheels spinning helplessly above the surface of the moor.  All the time my eyes were riveted on the horde of 'red eyes' pouring like a vast river down that steep terrain from that tor.  I felt acutely sick and also that I need to 'vacate' from the 'other end' also.  The result of intense fear.  Then came that sudden 'drop' off the road with the wheels spinning helplessly.  We were now 'sitting ducks' and I was lost for an answer other than quelling that awful hopeless compulsion to jump out of the car and run.

      I felt instinctively that these 'red eyed' fast moving 'creatures' were the 'army of workers' that were the emissaries of the tall, floating aliens that Den and I had encountered back in 1959 at the Punchbowl - of that I had not the slightest doubt.  We had escaped them then and now we had to escape them again - which of course we did. 

    This time my brother  Jim had lifted the rear of that heavy vehicle with a strength borne of sheer terror and he'd literally thrown the car out of that ditch back onto the road, but for which I believe we'd have never again been seen. 

     My driving at speed to the top of the very next hill, stopping the car atop the 'rise' in case of 'losing' the engine and being unable to re-start it, we could then coast 'down' that hill and thus let out the clutch at speed to re-start the engine.  I was taking no chances of losing electric power from the car-battery.  Atop that hill Jim and I got out of the car (standing behind the open doors ready to dive back in) and we watched those 'red eyes' appear in the distance as they continued their pursuit of us.  When they were at a distance still but very much closer, we'd get back inside the car and drive away to the top of  the next hill and again get out of the vehicle and again watch for those 'red eyes' to reappear and so on maybe 'three or four times' until the town of Okehampton lay before us only then our 'red eyed' pursuers gave up.  They had abandoned their pursuit of us. 

    I do not know why I encountered these strange creatures twice in my life or why both times were when I was with one of my brothers. I do know I am thankful both times we all got away.

    Life moved on and my family started to spread across the world. My brother Dennis moved to Australia with his family and I visited him whenever I could.

    Twice while visiting  in Australia I camped in the 'bush' with my then 'fifteen year old' nephew Trevor and twice we experienced very strange UFO occurrences. These events  took place in 1973. 

    The first camping trip was at the 'YouYangs' National Park and the second was at the 'Otway Ranges'.  At the 'YouYangs' National Park we experienced a UFO 'hovering' invisibly, close-by. My brother Dennis dropped his son Trevor and I off and we would hike out in to the bush to hunt together knowing Dennis would return at the arranged time in a few days to bring us back home. 

    The encounter with the odd craft took place  when we were out with our .22 rifles after rabbits.  It happened after a day of hunting and cooking and eating our catch.

    The UFO itself was silent and invisible, stationary and poised at no great distance above us, perhaps 'fifty to one hundred feet' above the ground and just ahead of us. 

     It was Trevor who first drew my attention to it.  It was dark and Trevor had said "hey Bri do you see that light up ahead?"  I didn't take much notice, not having seen anything myself and besides which we were in an isolated area of bushland with a profusion of scrub around us as we sought to keep to the narrow track of a former river bed in order to be able to find our way back to our tent after dark.  It had been daylight as we'd set out but then eventually darkness was upon us by 'six o'clock' in the evening. 

    We had pushed on in the darkness when suddenly Trevor had drawn my attention to the 'lights'.  I hadn't taken him seriously as I stared ahead in the semi darkness.  The sky had been clear and brilliant with stars and it was possible to see to travel in that star-light.  I cannot recall whether there was a moon visible.  I  stared ahead at the lights Trevor had first noticed then suddenly, two beams of intense 'white light' just like daylight beamed down to the ground from this unseen 'object' just a hundred yards ahead of us.

     The two beams moved around independent of each other . Trevor spoke in a hushed voice "hey Bri they're searching for us!" and indeed to all intent and purpose they looked as though they were indeed searching the ground just ahead of where we were standing. 

     Then the  tumultuous sounds of bird-life began calling, fooled as they were into thinking it was daylight.  The melodious notes of the Australian magpie distinctly ringing out loudest of all.  I had my tape-recorder strapped around my neck.  This was a heavy unit even though it was portable, it was switched to 'record'.  The two beams of 'daylight' then came together on the ground, still a hundred yards or so ahead of us. 

    Suddenly as if they had  located our position, both beams of light  travelled rapidly across the ground towards us.  Instinctively I knew that once caught in those two beams of light we would never escape.

    We  both ran the moment the beams lifted to swing rapidly towards where we both stood.  We ran blindly into the scrub-covered bushes to our 'right', then described a wide u turn so as to bring ourselves back on the 'trail' that would essentially lead us back to our tent.  Following that dried-bed of the river we could find our way back to the tent in that semi darkness which was the best way of finding the path back to the twin peaks of the 'You Yangs' which was close to where our tent was pitched. We did not have a compass nor a map and the territory was virtually unknown to us.  

    As we ran, panic-stricken and blindly, the ground beneath me suddenly 'opened up' and gave way beneath my feet as I plunged down a large sandy bottomed crater.  I was badly winded, my ribs bruised and my rifle had plunged deep into the sandy bottom of that hole, thus rendering my .22 rifle unusable due to the sand in the barrel and in the breach.

      Trevor's voice was calling for me, he sounded frightened.  Painfully I hauled myself to the top of that crater and with me limping and gasping for breath we continued our flight back in the direction from which we had come, following that dried-up river bed. 

     As we hurried along Trevor indicated that my tape-recorder was likely giving our position away and I thus switched it off.  We were a good 'three hour' walking distance from where our tent was pitched and we walked, tired, frightened and in silence making our way back to our tent.

      On finally arriving at out tent, we climbed the steep gradient above where that 'dried-up river bed' led us back to where our tent was pitched.  At long last we arrived at the incline above which was our tent and upon entering I seized some rags and oil and hastily set about removing the sand from my rifle and oiled it then with my rifle loaded with eleven rounds of .22 ammunition I sat on the 'rise' that overlooked the 'dried-up river bed' and sat there with Trevor for one hour looking back in the direction from whence we had come.  My decision to keep that one hour 'look out' being that I didn't know whether we had been followed back to our tent where we had to sleep. 

     I had nightmarish visions of being awakened from sleep by that beam of white light as we slept and I did not want to be taken by surprise hence our decision to wait and watch for 'one hour' before turning-in.  The hour passed without any further sighting of those beams and we returned to the tent and the comfort of our sleeping-bags.

    Fortunately we slept undisturbed until the 'sing song' cries of the Australian magpies broke-in musically upon my slumber - momentarily startling me before I realized that dawn had broken and the birds were 'welcoming' the rising Sun.  I believe we were picked-up by my brother Dennis a few hours later that same day, thankfully we did not have to remain there another night.

    Our second attempted  camping expedition in the Bush took place further away, one hundred miles out from Melbourne at the Otway Ranges where Den was kind enough to run us in his car . One again he planned on picking us up one week later.

      We camped close by a large lake or reservoir as we would require water.  Our first task as always was to build a camp fire with which to boil the 'brown' colored water from the lake as well as to cook our rations. 


    The week passed without incident and seemingly all too quickly.  We trekked and hunted and undertook the many chores that were necessary to our camping out in the bush lands of beautiful Australia. 

    We'd pass the time at night, chatting and/or reading.  Twelve hours was a rather long night and always somewhat eerie with the sounds of bush animals and the night birds.  The otherwise quiet and stillness was nice if at times a little creepy when one had to leave the tent to answer a 'call of nature' or to put wood on the fire. 

     With darkness at 1800hrs it always made the night seem long.  The week however passed and all too soon it was our last night under canvas.  The day had in fact been rather strange, that last day before Den was due to arrive and collect us.  For one thing, the birds all fell silent that morning of that last day. 

     A strange eerie feeling of unease made itself felt and Trevor remained 'in his sack' all of that day virtually.  He was reading a rather thick paperback - about UFO's. Definitely not the kind of reading to appeal to me in the atmosphere of that 'day before' we were to be picked up.  "Hey Bri?"  Trevor's voice broke in upon my thoughts as I lay on my sleeping-bag, casually reading something myself.  I turned to look at him and he said "listen to this"  He proceeded to relate a rather disturbing account of a UFO abduction so far as I remember.  He then added "guess where?"  He then said "one hundred miles from Melbourne!"  And how far were we from Melbourne?  Why, 'one hundred miles!'  I admonished him half jokingly for reading such a book considering where we were.  However, we took solace in that a circle of one hundred miles from Melbourne could be just about anywhere and not necessarily where we were camping.  I closed my eyes to sleep, eagerly awaiting the dawn of the following day.

    My eyes flickered open as I lay in my sleeping-bag.  Something, had awoken me.  I looked across at Trevor - he too was wide awake and staring questioningly back at me.  I knew only too well that 'inbuilt' sixth-sense that always served to awaken me when 'danger' threatened.  I would awaken with all my senses alert and not as from a sleep drowsily.  .  I strained my ears as a sound reached me.  I could see that Trevor likewise had heard what I had.  Something, or 'someone' was moving through the densely covered bush where I had collected the firewood from earlier that evening. 

    I could not figure out what it might be?   The noise it  made sounded enormously heavy and ponderous.  Loud snapping sounds of branches breaking beneath the feet of whatever it was that was alarmingly making its way towards our tent. 

     My heart was racing and I leapt out of my sleeping bag and seizing my rifle and my knife I crouched at the rear end of our tent at the ready.  The sheath-knife was to cut my way out of the rear of the tent if 'whatever it was' tried to enter the tent.  What the hell could it be?

      It was so heavy that the very ground shook under it's colossal weight.  That ground of compacted earth and leaves made no sound under our boots. Trevor likewise had now gotten out of his sleeping-bag and we both crouched, too scared to discover what was outside our flimsy, canvas tent. 

     Whatever had approached our tent was enormously heavy.  It walked slowly and ponderously around the tent after first approaching the zipped-up entrance in front of which, a safe distance away was our camp-fire, burning brightly stoked -up as it was in order to last throughout the night.  Thus in the morning we would simply put dead wood in the red ashes at the bottom to get the fire going to boil the water for our much needed coffee.

     Three times this huge 'thing on two legs' walked slowly and ponderously around our tent.  My feelings were an intense mixture of fear, disbelief and yet profound curiosity to know what this 'thing' could be.  It sounded like an 'elephant walking on two legs' that was my thoughts of our yet unseen 'visitor'.

      At any moment I expected the tent to be flattened or the zipped-up entrance to be rudely and violently torn open hence my knife to cut a way out of the back of that tent.  Then, those ponderous heavy footfalls slowly retreated back the way that 'it' had come.  I did not have the courage to unzip that entrance to look out even though I was so desperately curious to know just what that 'monstrous' two-legged 'thing' could possibly have been.  I was not a kangaroo for sure. 


    We waited until first light and quickly got our equipment together and made our way to our pickup point where my brother awaited our arrival. As we talked about the event of the night before my brother reminded me that we were not the first in the area to report strange large creatures walking on two feet invading campsites. It was thought to be a Yeti or big foot of the bush area which made us wonder if that could have been our mysterious huge heavy footed visitor the night before.  

    I had a few other experiences during my camping excursions that eventually ended my desire to be alone in the bush or anywhere as I learned that we are not alone on this planet and I had no plans on making it easy to continue brushing up with things I did not understand or want to do battle with or be taken by. I have seen things I could not explain and knew they were not after my welfare .

    My family and I have encountered other strange events over the years , things of ghostly unknown origins.  One thing for sure I will never forget the hundreds if not more red glowing eyes that pursued me not once but twice in my life. I will be happy to never see them again.  I also know as I have told Chris Holly, that I also know never to say never as you never know what will happen next! "

    It is hard to say what Brian encountered over his lifetime. I do think the UFO and red eyed creatures that Brian and his family came across twice in their time were not a coincidence but more something that intentionally wanted to have a close encounter with him and his family members.

    The events in the wooded desolate areas that Brain ran across could have been many things from ghostly to bigfoot of unknown creatures that we still do not understand. I do know that they were alarming enough to end Brains camping days.

    I know this man has to be a brave man to have faced and survived the encounters he has had in life and sadly know there are others who were not as lucky as Brain and his family members and have simply vanished to never be seen again who may have come face to face with the same beings Brain did. 

    I thank Brain Birch for taking the time to share the strange events of his life and hope by doing so others will realize it is best to stay alert to your surroundings and aware of who and want is around them at all times. I also hope the stories of Brains encounters will bring to light the fact it is always best to flee and keep your focus at all times when facing off with the unknown so one day when you are 75 you will also be able to tell how you survived things we can only call unknown and were able to live to tell your story too.

    Be careful out there and again thank you Brain.
