"There is far more to this world than taught in our schools, shown in the media, or proclaimed by the church and state. Most of mankind lives in a hypnotic trance, taking to be reality what is instead a twisted simulacrum of reality, a collective dream in which values are inverted, lies are taken as truth, and tyranny is accepted as security. They enjoy their ignorance and cling tightly to the misery that gives them identity." —Thomas Cox
The phenomenon of ufos, ghostly apparitions, government conspiracies and the paranormal, are no longer a matter of mere naive belief, in many cases these phenomena are heavily-documented and proven to be a reality, beyond any shadow of a doubt.
Something most unusual is definitely happening in our skies, on the ground and to individuals, something for which our religions, political leaders, textbook physics or our mainstream scientists, seem to have no answers. Of course, as to the why's and how's, we are still uncertain, although there are some sound theories which we would like to put forward.
Today we are receiving ever-increasing numbers of ufo reports; and, thanks to the advent of digital cameras we are seeing closer, more detailed recordings than ever before! The home ‘movie’ evidence speaks volumes. These are often undeniable images of glowing aerial orbs, cigar-shaped objects, dark triangles and strange looking ‘craft’ - most of which are recorded by ordinary people; and sometimes, (just on the odd occasion), we even get a rare glimpse of what are assumed to be ‘alien’ beings.
"Behind the scenes, high-ranking military officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs." - Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, New York Times, February 28th, 1960
Scientist, oceanographer, and former Soviet submarine captain Dr. Vladimir Azhazha has stated: "UFOs trans-morph, going from saucer shape to cigar shape to a spiral in minutes. They can materialize and dematerialize at will. The craft and occupants are varied and may be from dozens of different sources and civilizations." 2015
Sadly, despite the weighty evidence of hundreds of films, photographs and testimonies, large sections of society and the media tend to label those who witness, embrace and/or investigate such matters, as a bit cranky, lunatic fringe, as anoraks or tin foil hat wearers; but far from being a 'cranky' subject, the reality is that now we are seeing many highly credible people stepping forward, confirming their conviction about the reality of our subject matter. As well as thousands of civilians worldwide, the list of those interested in this subject includes, maverick scientists, airline pilots, priests, ex-military personnel and former police officers who have abandoned their fear of social stigma, and spoken out about what they have seen, experienced or learned. However, the majority of mainstream scientists and scholars are still a long way off from appearing to take ufo's seriously in public... but maybe, even with some of these it is a different matter behind closed doors.
Origins of our name
Lots of people have asked us why we call ourselves The British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society:
Basically, we wanted to get as many members of the public together as possible to become a kind of UFO Observer Corps - a society of skywatchers as it were... and this we have done.
Yet, we didn't wish to be limited to the study of UFOs alone, because during our own private researches, we often found that there are strong links between the subjects of UFOs, Crop Circles, Psychic, Supernatural and Earth Mystery Phenomena; for instance... Unexplained Spheres of Light, (a subject which comes under the umbrella of UFO studies), have been seen and videoed moving about inside Crop Circles; also there is the Psychic Connection where people with health issues claim to have experienced Miraculous Healings within these often unexplained formations.
Also, we have the association between mysterious Farm Animal Disappearances and Mutilations and the UFO/Alien Phenomenon: Ley Lines is yet another study which lists many interrelated happenings, such as Hauntings and other Supernatural-type Occurrences... and not forgetting either, the writings by many recognised researchers within this field of study, which suggest how UFOs may actually track and be guided by, these subtle magnetic currents of Earth Energy.
Deciding on a name for our concern wasn't easy; we even took into consideration the phrase "Earth Changes", which covers climate change, geology and seismic activity...
...and the reason for this last mentioned and apparently offbeat choice of study? earth lights!
A small percentage of what are termed as anomalous 'spheres' and glowing 'orbs' sometimes seen in the sky, may in fact be highly charged atmospheric plasmas that are generated by physical, electrical and magnetic phenomena in the atmosphere, mesosphere and ionosphere.
Tectonic strain in minor geological fault lines can also, occasionally, generate unfamiliar aerial phenomena.
However, such natural phenomena cannot explain away all UFOs, and many scientists freely acknowledge this.
The whole problem with stating that UFOs are just plasmas, is that these objects often display intelligent behavior in their flight characteristics.
So basically the suggestion is this... certain types of phenomena may be connected in such a way that each may have an effect on the other; hence our title, which is based on the examination and reporting of enigmatic phenomena, photographic evidence, witness testimony and hard science - together with some well founded speculation thrown in for good measure!
