Using one mystery to try to explain another: That’s what seems to be happening in the perpetual interplay between remote viewing (RV) and unidentified aerial phenomena–popularly known as UFOs–space aliens, and everything connected to them in the popular culture. This confluence of RV and UFOs goes back almost to the beginning of remote viewing itself, and not just the notorious, but some of the most prominent and respected members of the remote viewing community have indulged. Impossible to fully capture in one evening discussion, I nonetheless introduce you to the general outlines of the controversy, sketch for you the interrelationships of some of the main figures and their claims, show you some of the more provocative and interesting results, and explain the advantages and shortfalls of employing remote viewing to ferret out the truth of extraterrestrial visitation.

The Legacy of Bob Girard – An Interview with SMiles Lewis
About the Bob Girard Collection
We are proud to announce our latest acquisition: the personal collection of rare book seller and proprietor of the long-running Arcturus Books service, Robert C. Girard.
Explain who Bob Girard was, what he did and why he is remembered.
“He saw his Arcturus [Book Service] … as a way to connect to people, strange and wonderful people that he would never had been able to find without his book list.”
– Clas Svahn, Journalist and Vice Chairman of the Archives for the unexplained
“Bob Girard is an American institution”
– Colin Bennett, Fortean and flying saucer historian, 2004
“The Marcel Proust of the UFO phenomenon” … “The proprietor of Arcturus Books–arguably the biggest and best UFO bookstore in the world.”
– John Chambers, Paranormal journalist, 2004
“The greatest national bookseller of used books ranging from cryptozoology to Forteana, from ufology to parapsychology”
– Loren Coleman, Cryptozoologist, 2011
“Robert C. Girard… ran what was probably the world’s premier Fortean mail-order book service”
– Ronan Coghlan, Fortean zoologist, 2011
Bob Girard (1942-2011) was a legendary collector and seller of rare books, specializing in UFO literature and related fringe subject matter. In today’s age of internet ubiquity, instant gratification, and declining print media outlets, Robert Girard’s name is not widely known among UFO believers nor paranormal enthusiasts. His name is, however, remembered among many long-time UFO researchers, paranormal writers, and the DIY self-publishers of the 1980s and ’90s alt-media “Zine Scene.” He is remembered as the brutally frank bibliophile who published his incisive insights in concise micro-reviews, monthly, distributed world-wide across six continents. Despite his contribution of a handful of small books (The Revolt of the Free and Futureman to name only two) and over 30 years of service to the book-hungry global network of para-cultural knowledge seekers, he has yet to be acknowledged by the history books. Though in fact, he and his Arcturus Books service are mentioned in several UFO books including within the source citations of academic (and scholar of new religious movement studies) author James R. Lewis’ The Gods Have Landed.
Before becoming “the Marcel Proust of the UFO phenomenon” (John Chambers, 2004) Robert was an enlisted man in the United States Air Force, serving from 1964 to 1968 at Incirlik Air Force Base in Turkey and Wichita Falls, Texas, until he received an honorable discharge at the rank of sergeant. In 1978 he and his family moved to Ecuador where they lived for two years before returning home to Scotia, New York, where Robert had spent his high school and college years. It was there that he began pursuing his dream of starting his own rare book business with a niche focus on the most esoteric and Occult books within the UFO and paranormal milieus.
In 1980 he launched his book business with a monthly CataZine (combination catalog and magazine) featuring his own short reviews of every new book and zine that crossed his path. His no-nonsense reviews were infamous and for some it was a badge of honor to get even a bad review from Mr. Girard. Despite these gruff aspects of Bob’s character, his perspectives on these strange phenomena were considered as valuable as the rare books he was commenting upon.
“He was deeply knowledgeable of ufology and Forteana and wrote caustic reviews of most of the books he sold in his monthly or bimonthly Arcturus Books Catalogue, which he used to mail to his clients. His reviews were widely read because of their unique, no-holds-barred style. You knew Bob was an honest person in that he gave bad—sometimes awful—reviews to half the books he sold. He cared more for the integrity of the field than the almighty buck. … Bob Girard had a rough side to his personality and could be often rude with his own clients but… once you got accustomed to Bob’s gruffy side, you got to like him just the way he was.” (Huneeus, OpenMinds.tv, 2011)
“…We don’t have to describe the thrills to be found in reading UFO literature; we feel sure that you already know many of them. We have noticed this, however, in our own 25 years plus interest in UFOs and their literature: that as one’s interest in UFOs deepens, one is led into other fascinating areas of study through the study of Ufolit. To adopt a truly panoramic understanding of flying saucers, one must study such allied areas as Astroarchaeology, Astronomy, History, Mythology, Parapsychology and Religion. Through Ufolit, one’s personal vision can expand in many ways, and the entire course of one’s life may be changed—for the better.” (ArcStarBooks.com, “Never Cease from Exploration…,” June 2013)
The Anomaly Archives recently received a donation of 80 boxes of approximately 1,300 titles from his widow, Monica A. Williams-Girard. Among the yet to be cataloged works are books covering topics ranging from UFOs to Atlantis, El Dorado to Ancient Astronauts, Ancient Britain, the Celts and Stonehenge, Pre-Columbian America to Ancient America, Lost Civilizations and Inner Earth Mythology, Alchemy and the Occult, Gnosticism and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Apocrypha and Hermetica, Crystal Skulls, Greek and Roman Classics, World History and the History of Christianity, Minerals and Gemstones, Radio to Railroads, to Hitler and the Nazis.
There are a number of rare editions of classic flying saucer contactee books, several autographed by their authors. Bob had a special interest in the Contactees and at one time came into possession of George Hunt Williamson’s personal files, most of which were later sold to researcher Michael Swords for archival preservation. Bob’s interest in the Contactees went so far that he published “a reproduction of fifties contactee Truman Bethurum’s own scrapbook” (Ignacio Darnaude). We’ve just scratched the surface of his donated collection and I’m very excited to catalog these invaluable pieces of Fortean / Ufological history.
Did you know Bob?
I didn’t know Bob personally but had interacted with him on a business level in the mid 1990s when I briefly published my own print zine which he sold through his service. My zine wouldn’t have reached as many people as it did if not for him. This is an important aspect of his relevance to the history of our search for knowledge about these strange phenomena: Bob Girard played a critical role in helping people worldwide connect with each other through his network of clients and his publicizing each of their individual localized efforts at Do-It-Yourself research and publishing.
Bob Girard reviewed, bought, and sold the many different esoteric self-published zines that were, in a sense, the precursors to the explosion of alternative media websites populating the internet in the late 1990s. These DIY zines were emerging from the handmade photocopier Samizdat screeds of the 1980s and becoming increasingly well-produced with the advent of easily accessible desktop publishing software. Zines like your own Steamshovel Press (which Bob said, “feed that dark feeling in the pit of your gut”), Wes Nations’ Crash Collusion, and so many others, helped propel these topics from the printed page into the internet age.
Scott Corrales of Inexplicata and the Institute of Hispanic Ufologysays that Bob helped him distribute his earliest books on the chupacabras and that his “encouragement made possible the distribution of our initial publication, Samizdat (1992-1998).” UFO and paranormal author and researcher Kenneth W. Behrendt says in one of his books (The New Science of the UFO) that he “was fortunate to obtain the help of” Bob’s book service which led him to publish his own quarterly UFO research journal called AURA (Annals of Ufological Research Advances) that was sold exclusively through Arcturus.
Within one of the few boxes of donated materials that I have unpacked I came across an 1986 issue of Critique (A Journal of Conspiracies & Metaphysics) in which the magazine’s publisher included a promotional sheet with a personal note stating, “how about an ad exchange … haven’t seen a catalog in a while” which provides a typical example of the kind of networking and supportiveness in which Bob frequently engaged.
The Arcturus Books “weirdness by mail” service, in my opinion, was a definite facilitator for the rise in popularity of UFO and paranormal websites as the world-wide-web became increasingly accessible. Unfortunately, Bob was either unable or unwilling to adapt quickly enough to the changing digital landscape to successfully transition from the snail-mail world to that of the monolithic online sales giants like Amazon; though he did try.
How did you come into possession of his archive?
Retired Naval Officer, former NSA employee, and 25-year MUFON board member Tom Deuley acted as both mediator and facilitator of this donation to the Anomaly Archives including his personally paying for the shipping costs of moving the 80 boxes from Port St. Lucie, Florida to Austin, Texas. The source of funding for the collection was arranged through the UFO Research Coalition which is made up of CUFOS (Center for UFO Studies), FUFOR (Fund for UFO Research), and MUFON (Mutual UFO Network). FUFOR arranged the funding for the URC and Tom hopes to have MUFON continue requesting funds for the upkeep of the collection.
The Girard Collection is the latest and greatest donation of a personal book collection acquired by the Anomaly Archives. Some of our past collection donations have included books and paper files of:
Central Texas Fortean journalist and publisher Dennis Stacy (past writer for OMNI Magazine and editor of the MUFON UFO Journal and publisher of Anomalist Books)
Austin counter-cultural zine publisher Wes Nations of Crash Collusion magazine (now at JohnnyVagabond.com)
Local political activist Mike Hanson (author of Bohemian Grove: Cult of Conspiracy who accompanied Alex Jones into the grove)
Occult UFO researcher John Carter (author of Sex & Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons)
… as well as the Founder of the San Antonio Parapsychological Association, a local respected past-life regression therapist, and many more.
We hope that other researchers, authors, and knowledge seekers will consider donating their personal collections of books and paper files to the Anomaly Archives. There are too many collections which have already been lost to the mists of time.
What are your plans to make it researcher accessible?
First we’ll be cataloging the donated collection and processing the materials for public access and display within the Anomaly Archives physical location in Northwest Austin, Texas. The resulting catalog and relevant finding aids will be posted on our website, www.AnomalyArchives.org for all to see.
We currently have very limited public hours of operation but all of his materials will be available soon to view in-house. Researchers interested in perusing this or any of our collections are encouraged to email us at <email@example.com>
We are developing several different plans for how best to utilize his collection, with an appreciation of his perspectives on the UFO phenomenon, as public awareness tools. So much of what he was interested in touches upon the many popular memes found within the wide array of UFO related esoteric themes (Atlantis and other ancient human civilizations, theories about ancient astronauts and alien abductions, etc.) that we are certain people of all paranormal stripes will find import in his legacy.
Anomaly Archives presents Robert Powell on UFOs & Govt
Saturday, March 29th, 2014
Free Event – Donations Welcomed!
Robert Powell has been the Director of Research at MUFON since 2007 and is also the head of MUFON’s Science Review Board. He is an active Field Investigator in the state of Texas having completed over 120 investigations and is a MUFON Star Team member. He is one of two authors of the detailed radar/witness report on the Stephenville Lights. Robert is also a member of the Society for Scientific Exploration, the National Space Society, and the Académie d’Ufologie. Robert is active with FOIA requests to various government organizations to obtain information on historical cases and is a co-author of a book published in July 2012: UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry. Robert currently resides in Austin, Texas.
Robert has a BS in Chemistry and is a former collegiate debater. He has 28 years in engineering management in the semiconductor industry from 1978 to 2006. While working at Advanced Micro Devices he has taken numerous internal courses related to device physics, design of experiments, and statistical analysis. He helped Advanced Micro Devices develop its first flash memory technology that is used in today’s flash cards for cameras, PCs, video cameras, and other products. His experience includes managing a state-of-the-art chemistry laboratory and managing a Research and Development group that worked on nanotechnology using atomic force microscopes, near-field optical microscopy, and other techniques. Robert is also a co-holder of four patents related to nanotechnology.
Talk Synopsis: UFOs & Government: The Historical and Changing Role of Government over Time
Governments have been concerned about UFO sighting reports since WWII, but historians have never made a concerted attempt to understand their often contradictory responses to the phenomenon. How could something of such potential technological and national security consequence have left no visible trace in the history books? Whether it’s a conspiracy or not, the subject has been marginalized to such an extent that it’s as if the military never acted with alarm on the heels of a UFO sighting, as if the intelligence community never took up the issue behind closed doors, as if government research and development efforts never attempted to duplicate the phenomenon. But they have. Robert Powell will discuss how governments, especially the U.S. government, have dealt with the UFO phenomenon and will provide a hypothesis as to why the phenomenon took its roots during WWII.
SMiles Lewis will explore UFO Close Encounters and “alien abductions” with an eye towards an interpretation of these events as a Transpersonal Inter-Species Virtual-Reality Communications mechanism using “out-of-body-like” altered states of consciousness. He will speculate on the nature and meaning of these experiences and the possible manipulation of these phenomena by “alien” and human agencies for parapolitical purposes. Drawing on both witness testimony and the work of the world’s leading UFO researchers, SMiles will explain the various intelligences (human and otherwise) behind the UFO phenomenon which have the apparent ability to manipulate belief systems, consciousness, space-time, and what some might term the “soul.”
UFOs & Consciousness – Part One – Video / AudioPresented by SMiles Lewis for INACS’ monthly Consciousness Connections meetings. Co-Sponsored by the Anomaly Archives lending library. Presented / Recorded 10/25/11 at the Austin Center for Spiritual Living.

This edition of the eNewsletter contains a report on last month’s meetup discussions and videos watched, as well as news of the first Annual Women’s UFO Conference right here in Texas, plus a ton of Anomalous Headlines, information on our next monthly meetup and more!
The Anomaly Archives holds monthly meetings on the Fourth Saturday of most months. The meetings are held from 1-5pm on the fourth Saturday at the INACS / Anomaly Archives headquarters located in North West Austin just past the intersections of Research and Technology Boulevards (see bottom of email for detailed directions):
12593 Research Blvd., Suite 302, Austin, Texas 78759
This month’s meeting will be one week early, on Saturday, April 21st with a viewing of the second live online Alternate Universe i-Conference:
Anomaly Archives monthly meeting report for March 24th 2012
At last month’s (March) Anomaly Archives meeting we had some great discussions on a wide range of topics, from talk of ufo whistleblowers to channeling to what books we’ve been reading. We also watched some interesting videos. More on the videos (with links) at the end of this brief meeting report for now here is more about the conversations we had.
At the beginning of the meeting we continued a discussion we’ve been having about the merits of people like UFO “Whistleblower” Robert O. Dean. For more background on the interesting story of Bob Dean and the alleged 1964 SHAPE Ufo Assessment document check out these links. This first one from an interview in mid-1996:
Meeting attendees talked about Dolores Cannon and Channeling in general, though Dolores clarifies that her messages come through the use of hypnosis. One person mentioned that they are currently reading one her books. Here are some introductory videos about Dolores:
Preview of Interview with Dolores Cannon
Dolores Cannon – Three Waves of Volunteer Souls & Ascension (Starseeds, Indigos, Crystals, etc.)
We also discussed the Trickster element within various UFO and paranormal encounters as well as deceased persons appearing in alien abductions / CE3Ks / NDEs, etc.
Of course David Icke’s ideas about reptilian’s was raised and we talked about precedents in shamanism and resonant speculative hypothesis suggested by alien abduction researcher Karla Turner in this 1994 interview at the Annual Mufon Conference which was that year held in Austin, Texas. Here are links to that interview:
From The (old) Archives: Karla Turner – Anomalous Abductee Experiences
Mike DeGroff reminded the attendees about an intriguing plan proposed by NUFORC’s (National UFO Reporting Center) Peter Davenport. It is his passive radar plan, first proposed back in 2004.
From the “Coast to Coast AM” Newsletter COASTZONE Weekend Edition for March 19, 2012:
UFO Detection: In the latter half, Director of the National UFO Reporting Center, Peter Davenport, discussed his revolutionary proposal ( PDF file) for detecting UFOs in near-Earth environment, out to a distance of around 250,000 miles. The plan calls for using a passive radar system in which signals could be analyzed to determine a target’s size, location, and other details. For example, such a system would be particularly useful in identifying craft that are in our atmosphere, doing 20,000 mph, and making sudden right turns, he said. This detection data could be shared with scientists for analysis, and eliminate the need for government disclosure, which doesn’t appear to be forthcoming, he commented. Davenport said he is seeking funding for this project– around $750,0000 is needed to set up a prototype of the passive radar system operating station (much of that cost would go toward developing the software for analyzing the intercepted signals). Ultimately, he foresees a kind of webcam system in which all the UFO detection information would be available on one public website in real time. He also talked about his UFO Hotline, which recently has received reports of spherical fireball-type objects
Here is the introduction to the paper presented at the 2004 Annual Mufon Symposium in Denver:
USING MULTISTATIC PASSIVE RADAR FOR REAL-TIME DETECTION OF UFO’S IN THE NEAR-EARTH ENVIRONMENT
Copyright 2004 Peter B. Davenport All rights reserved. Author: Peter B. Davenport Director, National UFO Reporting Center Seattle, Washington
ABSTRACT: The author proposes a system for the remote, real-time detection of UFO’s in the near- Earth environment, using passive, multi-static, frequency-modulated (FM) radar. The system capitalizes on the use of multiple, time-synchronized radio receivers to capture high-frequency radio signals reflected from a target. The time-lapse between received signals, together with three-dimensional Doppler-shift analysis, permits calculation of a target’s location, velocity, acceleration, flight path, and other parameters, possibly to include target size estimation. Signal analysis of the reflected signal, combined with analysis of target characteristics, will permit discrimination between suspected UFO’s, and targets of terrestrial origin, e.g. aircraft, satellites, space debris, meteor trails, upper atmospheric conditions, weather phenomena, migratory birds, the Moon, etc.. One application proposed may allow detection of UFO’s out to a range of at least 27,600 kilometers from the Earth’s surface.
Here is some background on similar ideas noted on the UFO UpDates eList:
“The laser [seen in the background] can provide a video readout of the UFO for the PSI people as well as transmit information to the spacecraft. The pan-and-tilt head can be moved up and down and sideways simultaneously by means of the remote-control “joystick,” but it still takes the skill of an anti-aircraft gunner to strike the UFO with the laser beam.”
For much of the middle of the meeting we each briefly talked about what we have been reading? Some of the titles and authors mentioned included Jim Mars’ RULE BY SECRECY, Tom Campbell’s MY BIG T.O.E. as well as the books of Dolores Cannon. Also mentioned were Bob Frissell, Paul Smith’s READING THE ENEMIES MIND (about the military’s Remote Viewing). We also talked about Smith’s documenting of the military’s Dowsing programs. Miles spoke about reading Jenny Randles’ book PARANORMAL PENINES.
The SERPO Saga was raised and a brief talk ensued about the merits or lack thereof regarding the whole sordid affair. Mike DeGroff mentioned it’s having caught his attention because of the inclusion in the story of a sighting that sounded strikingly similar to the famous Lonnie Zamora sighting. Here are some investigations by various groups into the strange story of SERPO:
Ancient Aliens episode on Rendlesham and the mysterious 1001010111010101001001 message:
Ancient Aliens – Rendlesham Binary Code Revealed – edited
An attendee mentioned some striking footage they remember and we’d like to look at. They described it as being from Mexico and of a cloud-cigar type ufo disgorging smaller orbs. If you think you know more about this video or have a link to it online please let us know.
Miles had brought a number of long, medium and short length videos for the group to watch. He mentioned several feature length UFO documentaries that the group might want to watch but ultimately we chose to watch a sampling of shorter length videos including:
2012 UFO Congress Researcher of the Year Lee Speigel
FLASBHACK: Nick Pope and MSM on Triangular UFO Videos in Ireland… Miles spoke briefly about his ANOMALY Magazine website and articles being cited on this MSNBC news video and how they got the story completely wrong, confusing two different incidents of bad-jacketing of an alleged ufo sighting with other known footage not related at all to the new sighting. Here is the MSNBC video with Nick Pope – whom Miles communicated with about this case. Here also are the articles alluded to in the video:
Nick Pope and MSM on Triangular UFO Videos in Ireland
Miles mentioned one of his favorite weird close encounter cases from the early days of flying saucers. He played an old recording of Close Encounter witness Joe Simonton where he describes the pancakes the occupants gave him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Ih8jH3J88
Lastly, before wrapping up after a long and interesting meeting, we watched the preview for recent interview of musician Billy Corgan by Austin’s Alex Jones from during the recent SXSW media festival. Below are links to the sneak peak and the full interview:
Klaus Dona – “Ancient Evidence of Possible Anunakki in Americas”William Michael Mott – “The Problem of Density Regarding Non-Human Encounters”Don Ecker – “Is Somebody Else On The Moon?”Adam Gorightly – “Sex, Drugs and UFOs”Kevin Smith – “MARS: The Fading Fog”

Part Two of UFOs and Consciousness: The Fantastic Facts About UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large
Tuesday, November 29th, 7pm This Event Has Been Postponed
Part two of this lecture continues where the first presentation ended with further discussion about SMiles’ ideas about UFOs as a Transpersonal Virtual Reality Communications Channel facilitated by human psychic ability interfacing within Jung’s Collective Unconscious which appears to be the matrix within which Contact with various Alien Others can occur.
What can we learn about UFOs from studying such diverse arenas of consciousness exploration as shamanism and drugs like DMT? What about Carl Jung’s collective unconscious and parapsychology? What about near death and out of body experiences? What have human agencies (governmental, corporate, aboriginal and esoteric) discovered about the UFO phenomenon’s effects on consciousness? Has humanity interacted with Alien Others throughout history? Could we be communicating with CryptoTerrestrials or a Gaian Mind? What do we really know about these diverse and exceptional experiences and those who’ve had them? Come discover the fantastic facts about UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large!

Steven Jones: The Life and Times of An ET Contact Experiencer
“Steven Jones is a modern-day ET Contact Experiencer: no longer the confused and powerless Abductee, but an empowered participator in the extraordinary events that remain such an important and profound part of his life. After nearly an unbelievable 50 years of ET contact he is now able to assist others like him to move through the barrier that restricts so many from understanding what Contact really is.
Through perfect recall and in great detail Steven will guide you through a landscape of contact events with several types of ET. From early Contact experiences seen through the innocent eyes of childhood to the young adult whose perspective of events was unavoidably influenced by the world he lived in, Steven will safely deliver you via a roller-coaster ride of experiences that ultimately inspired his adult years. Even die-hard skeptics will have a problem dismissing the details of so many of the experiences that Steven has been through.
As we all head towards 2012 with a mixture of apprehension and anticipation, Steven will share the knowledge that has been passed on to him by the ETs and explain how we might begin to re-evaluate our position as caring and responsible human beings, not only as residents of the planet Earth, but as universal citizens within the cosmos.
On this challenging journey of discovery we will begin to understand what the purpose of ET Contact has been, how we might consider responding to it and hopefully to identify who the ETs actually are. In doing so Steven will give you a glimpse into a point of view that goes beyond the usual belief systems about extraterrestrial reality, to give you valuable insight to make up your own mind about what this mystery actually means.”
Friday, February 18th, the Anomaly Archives hosted a free lecture featuring cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard. Local ABC news affiliate KVUE‘s Shelton Green covered the event on the 10 o’clock news. And the San Antonio affiliate KENS5 has since re-syndicated the video and article on their own website.
Back in the August and September 2005 issues of the eNewsletter we included reference to the proposed, suitably sci-fi dome-shaped, “Earth Station Roswell” project in New Mexico as well as the dome-shaped Star Trek-esque, Starship Pegasus, located on IH-35 north of Austin. Now the Starship is “For Sale”…
Here are some past examples of UFO and Alien themed products that have actually been given to us:
