During the so-called winter of 2005 in Scottsdale, Arizona, I taught one of the first ufology college courses in the nation. Naively, I assumed that my class would be filled with students curious about the history of UFOs, as the announced curriculum was a general history of ufology, beginning in 1887. Yet, by the end of the first class, I realized that instead of the historically curious, my class was filled with ET Experiencers, eager to discuss how UFOs and ET contact changed their view of reality.
Teaching ufology to students who were eager to integrate anomalous experiences into their view of reality, provided a further impetus to define and clarify Exoconsciousness, a concept birthed out of my own extensive ET Experiences.
The experiential reality of Exoconsciousness posits that all humans have the innate ability to connect and communicate with Extraterrestrials. This ability is sourced in the Extraterrestrial origins, shared multidimensions and abilities of human consciousness. In other words, we humans have a natural ability to form a world-view that integrates Extraterrestrial experiences. And in doing so, we become mature, integrated Exoconscious Humans.
This article examines and expands the concept of an Exoconscious Human Reality via 1) Philosophy and Quantum Science, 2) A contrast and comparison of Exoconscious Reality with Virtual Reality (VR) Technology, Military Mind Control Programs and 3) Mature, Multidimensional Extraterrestrial Experiencers as the Source of Exoconsciousness, and ultimately, ufology.

Who am I and what is the nature of reality?
In my twenties, long before I was consciously aware of the ET presence on Earth, a series of events transpired that made me acutely aware my concept of reality was inadequate. As with all of humanity, it was the frustration and pain of my inability to make sense of the world that got my attention. From that point forward, I became a seeker of truth. Over the next decade I took a searching and fearless inventory of my own psyche and my relationship to the cosmos at large, and as that analysis progressed an insatiable curiosity to understand the world grew within me. I would no longer take circumstances at face value as I recognized law, order and intelligence behind all creation. Determined to hone my ability to focus and analyze circumstances, my consciousness was beginning to wake up.
As the years flowed by I investigated metaphysics, the fundamental nature of reality and the cosmos through books and classes. I pursued religious and spiritual studies that included to varying degrees Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and the new age spiritual philosophy of Science of Mind. At the same time, I was mesmerized by the workings of the human mind and emotions, eventually reading many dozens of books on psychology and personal growth. As my trust in the universe and how it works was growing, I included in my studies natural health and healing methods that included the ancient Indian Vedic traditions.
By the time I reached my late thirties, although I recognized the duality of life I felt confident that underlying all appearances, there was logic. I considered myself to be fairly grounded with a reasonable grasp of a reality that I knew was immense and beyond my comprehension. I had come to trust a loving and infinite intelligence that I felt quite connected to. I never believed this intelligence to be a single entity that was lord and master, but rather an Energy of Intelligence of which I was a part. I also believed that I could call upon and bring to bear upon positively circumstances in my life which promoted a measure of confidence, and I saw myself on the road of Infinite Possibility. As for whether or not humanity was alone in the universe, I could only imagine the Creative Intelligence would be infinite in expression in that arena as well, but I had never spent time investigating that topic.
A dramatic shift in reality takes place.
In June of 1991, while camping overnight in a remote area north of Sedona, Arizona my life and my concept of reality changed forever. Because the park we had stopped at was officially a day park, there had been no other campers or vehicles in the area. At approximately 2:00 a.m. I was fully conscious and awake as I had been sitting upright for several minutes after having awakened to suspicious sounds outside. Suddenly, the back door of the van swung upright and the lights went on inside, temporarily blinding me. In a couple of seconds, my eyes adjusted and I saw reaching towards me a thin, grey arm with a hand that possessed only three fingers and a thumb. On the tip of each finger appeared to be a small indentation or suction cup of sorts.

Thousands of candid testimonies about extraordinary experiences do not agree with conventional scientific explanations but force us to re-consider our ideas about "reality." They are an insistent (and building up to a point of becoming impossible to ignore) call towards becoming aware about the existence of multiple realities also interacting with ours in important ways.
Modern science is based on the observation of constant or outwardly stable, communally verifiable, objective patterns and, from that basis it tries to refine its explanatory and predictive theories about those patterns. But, according to the candid testimonies of extraordinary experiences, those patterns of reality that seem immovable suddenly become flexible and manipulatable under unknown mechanisms, often in association with the presence of intelligent entities not normally encountered in ordinary reality. They indeed seem to be able to temporarily intrude into our reality system.
The normal reaction to all of this is closed-mindedness. But what can we do about it? We must first understand that – in the modern era of rational and critical thinking - the default response to a sensorial perception that is normally limited to one kind of physical reality is… materialism. The empirical, materialist, scientific attitude that still prevails (despite some 100 years of quantum physics) accompanies and reinforces our innate interpretive psycho biological tendencies necessary to face a stable physical outer world in which - although there is cooperation and symbiosis - there also is (due to the presence of entropy) the fact that life feeds on life and that our physical vehicles can easily be damaged seriously affecting our subjective experiences. That is why our cognitive processes and automatic brain responses have adapted to this type of world or stable reality system which may be rather inflexible or "dense"... in order to survive and to try to attain a modicum of day to day dynamic equilibrium (homeostasis in biological terms).

Based on his research, John Mack famously said that we may have to expand our definition of reality.
Thousands of abductees consistently report events that challenge the laws of physics. They mention how they were 'floating' in the air, while being transported straight through solid objects like windows, doors, walls or ceilings. They describe how they feel their cells are being taken apart. They experience temporal anomalies. They encounter beings that seem to step in and out of 3D-reality. The primary mode of communication of these beings is telepathy. They are being taken to environments where time and space seem to behave differently.
Given the tremendous consistency of these reports, there can be no reason to question their veracity, even though they seem impossible in our current understanding of reality. Confronted with this paradox of experiences that are real and impossible, experiencers and researchers are forced to redefine reality. We have asked our panel to share their thoughts with us:

One of the biggest hurdles to being an experiencer is others questioning whether what happened to you is even possible. This doubt can feel all the more uncomfortable if your contact with ETs was so strange that it’s as hard for you to take as it is for those giving you the looks of suspicion, except you don’t have the luxury of disbelief when you have an unshakeable degree of personal proof (that, unfortunately, usually isn’t demonstrable to others). How does one handle that as an experiencer and what’s a recommendable etiquette for open-minded doubters?
As an experiencer, reality has always been, let’s say, flexible for me. I have no choice. While others believe what is real based upon contemporary scientific interpretations, stuff keeps happening to me that’s not adequately covered in the rulebooks.
And I don’t just mean the fact that I’ve encountered my share of non-human entities, which is certainly a challenging enough concept for modern science (on that note, I love all those articles of what extraterrestrial life will probably look like if we ever discover some. I can just imagine Newton, after his episode under the apple tree, reading a theory of what fruit will probably look like if we ever discover some). Reality sometimes does some disorienting contortions in encounter scenarios. I offer as example, edited versions of three, out of many, high strangeness experiences I’ve had…
I was four years old when three small greys pulled my spirit out of my physical form and put me to a test of how well I can control myself out of body.
This begs the question, “Is out-of-body travel scientifically possible?” I can only offer my personal testimony of what I experienced.
When I was twenty, I was surprised to find myself walking down a dirt road during the night with no idea of where I was nor how I got there. There were small houses intermittently along the road and, in front of one of them was a grey being. When we made eye contact, I found myself suddenly back in my room in my bed during daylight hours as if nothing had happened. The experience was completely real, not a dream. Four years later, on a trip to rural Northern Michigan, I shockingly found myself in the exact location of this experience by myself, in the middle of the night, while on a stroll from a buddy’s cabin…but no grey being was present. There’s more to the story, but this makes my point.
Is time travel scientifically possible? I can only offer my personal testimony.
When I was twenty-four, I was standing on a secluded hill with a girl I was dating when we found ourselves unwittingly circling our steps and repeating several minutes worth of conversation before we were briefly frozen in place and inspected on the spot by three greys.
Are time-loops scientifically possible? I can only offer my personal testimony.
Modern accepted science isn’t a big fan of time distortion at a personal level and out-of-body experiences. And, I get it. Why should anyone believe an experiencer’s unsupportable claims just because they’re sincere?
The best I can offer is the truce on everyone’s part to please be comfortable with a bit of mystery for compassion’s sake. People encounter a wide variety of unexplainable phenomena on a daily basis and usually can’t defend the reality of something they don’t understand themselves.
Is everything that experiencers report scientifically possible? They can only offer their testimony.

Young children experience the world in a completely open minded, fascinating, strange and magical way. But as they enter adulthood, the magic fades and consensus reality becomes the only reality. Monsters in the dark were merely products of the imagination. Or were they?
In my case, abductions by Gray aliens were frequent during childhood. I also endured equally terrifying ghost and demon encounters. It got to a point where all through my kindergarten and elementary school years, I slept in the corner with my back against the wall, lights on, stereo playing story-time cassettes, desperately awaiting daylight.
It became evident to me that otherworldly beings existed, they could show up here in the physical, they could get me at any time, and my parents were powerless to do anything about it. So, my reality was defined as utterly strange from the very beginning. I was too inquisitive and logical to let school and university dissuade me from acknowledging what I had personally experienced. Consequently, my later years didn’t involve redefining of reality so much as expanding and clarifying what I already suspected.
True reality is very different from consensus reality. The latter is a kind of collective delusion held together by the limitations of our five senses and the decree of materialists. On the one hand, scientists acknowledge that our mundane material world arises from a deeper quantum world that is far weirder and more expansive in its possibilities. They recognize that physical reality is a subset of something bigger. Yet they scoff at possibility of this bigger reality ever showing its face to us. Then they lament that we are alone in the universe while ignoring all evidence that we are not; to a fish, every cup of water looks empty.

This autobiographical book, written by Stan Ho, is dedicated to Stan’s experiences with UFO’s (Unidentified Flying Objects) and ET’s (Extra Terrestrials, or Aliens) all based on real life, truth, and fact. It covers topics such as encounters of various kinds, lucid dreaming, remote viewing, orbs, and consciousness.
The book has several forewords, where one can get a base knowledge of understanding of exopolitical matters. This field is heavily based on testimonies, historical records, and intense research. Through these methods, we’re able to discern fake news, conspiracy theories that have no base of facts, and collaboration with others who are on the front lines of working with the people who matter in this field. It was good to see so many forewords from the people who have really made a difference.
When we deal with subjects that are not widely known about, or are shrouded in uncertainty, mystery, and controversy, we must first attempt to educate our readers so we can help guide them into these realms. Stan has done a good job in laying down this base of information which makes it much easier to understand and digest the subject matter.
Time, Space, and all things that exist in it are connected, this connection is known as synchronicity and will be mentioned on numerous occasions. It’s important to understand its meaning because just understanding what it is, helps us to make sense of what’s happening around us, now, in the past, and in the future. This is all related to Quantum Entanglement, which sounds incredibly complex (and it is), but it’s made easier to understand for us here, at least in a way that helps us relate to it.

In a follow-up to Gwenn Farrell's article, Who Took Me?, we asked the members of our panel for their feedback. Here are their answers:
John Carpenter: Reptilians and other unmentionables
Any individual who enters this field of research brings with him a set of beliefs with boundaries for acceptance or rejection. This is naturally based on the individual's level of comfort and openness with accepting any of the weird information dumped into his naive hands. UFO researchers have been fairly willing to accept a generous portion of this bizarre data but always retain a personal, often private, preference for the amount of "weird stuff" they are willing to accept as credible. I am constantly amused at the notion that a researcher of incredible abductions by aliens in UFOS could label anything as "too weird." Yet, as human beings, it is our nature to "draw the line" somewhere based on our need to provide a sense of comfortable order to the chaotic and bizarre influx of strange information. It seems to take a great deal of personal maturity, security and ego-strength to publicly acknowledge and willingly support some of the data which others label as "too crazy." Our boundaries do shift and expand over time as we become more at ease.
History provides an important perspective on the shifting boundaries of belief and disbelief. Decades ago the first hurdle surpassed was the basic acceptance that UFOs might actually exist in our earthly skies. But to believe that they could contact the soil or land under intelligent control was absurd, at least until enough odd soil samples and credible witness reports forced an acceptance of this possibility. Then it became unthinkable that people could claim seeing little beings in conjunction with a landed craft. Even crazier of course would be the idea that such beings would overpower humans with paralysis and float them aboard for exams!
But look at how our collective boundaries of acceptance have stretched over the decades of research into this endless jungle of weirdness. This is basically due to the endless flow of new cases which, when researched carefully and methodically, are today considered as more reliable, credible, acceptable, and also supportive of data patterns from previous decades. On the horizon are issues of genetic manipulation, spirituality, channeling, multiple dimensions and paranormal correlations. Most of these areas of interest are presently viewed as "too weird" or "without scientific foundation," which is what James Pringle, a prestigious British scientist, claimed about reports of meteorites in 1759, until a wealth of data forced acceptance of "rocks falling from the sky" within the next 100 years!

Everybody has a sense of self or sense of personal identity, and our sense of self is perhaps the most valuable human part of us. Psychologists defines "sense of self" as the way a person thinks about himself and views his traits, beliefs and purpose in the world. Beyond the basic need for a sense of control, we are more deeply driven by our sense of identity - of who we are - than any other part of ourselves. As Descartes said, "I think, therefore I am."
Our sense of self includes the roles we play in life, the attributes, behaviors and associations that we consider most important about ourselves. And our sense of self is always changing as we learn, experience and grow. For example, I am a therapist, a sister, an American, a friend, a Buddhist, and much more. Each of those are descriptors of me that function together to manifest the person I am, that give me confidence and a sense of security and help me create a life that is happy, rewarding and worthwhile.
Sense of self is an essential element of human personality. A strong sense of self creates confidence and the ability to move forward, meeting life's challenges. It is the foundation that underpins our ability to function in an often difficult and formidable world. When our sense of identity is challenged, even the strongest among us can feel powerless it can cause confusion and a feeling of loss. Or, in other circumstances, it can open our eyes to new possibilities and expand the boundaries of our hearts, minds and lives. If an individual is ready for it, seeing another aspect of who they are can be a wonderful thing.
