Author: anonymous Chinese contact modalities researcher
The Writer is a ufology enthusiast from China and previously had various vehicles for sharing and discussing ufology and spiritual information with Chinese viewers. The following article summarizes the Writer's insights about Chinese ufology and the Chinese spiritual communities. The writer will also discuss how the Chinese community is changing in their views as to what the Consciousness and Contact Research Institute (“CCRI”)calls the “Paranormal Contact Modalities”, which are all of the ways that humans are “piercing the veil” of their 3D reality and having diverse contact experiences with non-human intelligence (NHI)via Near Death Experiences, Out of Body Experiences, UFOs, Ghosts/Spirits, Remote Viewing, Hallucinogenic Contact Experiences, Channeling, ESP/PSI, etc.
2. CHINESE UFOLOGY
China voted yes to Ufology at UN meetings
China was in support of United Nations ufology research. In 1978, the United Nations adopted decisions A/DEC/32/424 and A/DEC/33/426which called for the "establishment of an agency or a department of the United Nations for undertaking, coordinating and dissembling the results of research into unidentified flying objects and related phenomena." China, as one of the permanent members of the UN, voted in favor of the resolution. Immediately after the UN resolution was passed, various UFO associations were established worldwide, researching, and investigating the UFO phenomenon, including a few Chinese UFO institutions established in both private and quasi-governmental forms.
Chinese government attitudes towards ufology, ESP and spirituality studies
Despite the fact that China voted "Yes" to the above UN resolutions, it did not necessarily reflect the government's attitude towards ufology, parapsychology, and spirituality studies. The early 90s was the golden period of Chinese spirituality. The study of Qi Gong had taken off and gained much public interest. Qi Gong is a form of Chinese healing and physical strengthening technique with thousands of years of history, involving different exercises and meditations. A growing number of Qi Gong classes and centers had emerged across China as an alternative to yoga or tai chi.

One of the more intriguing aspects of the contact phenomenon is that many encounters do not happen in a 3D physical environment. They happen in altered states and/or non-physical or subtle realms. For lack of a better word, these encounters are usually referred to as astral encounters.
One fascinating account comes to mind where a contactee suddenly felt he had to sit down, and described a bilocation / out of body experience where he was simultaneously in a living room and aboard a ship. He described what was happening on the ship. And when he said they were using some laser-like device on his arm, red laserlike dots appeared on his arm in the living room as well. The whole experience only took a few minutes, but raises many questions and once more challenges what we believe about what reality is.
We asked our panel for their thoughts. Both Bill Konkolesky and Denise Stoner share personal experiences, while Giorgio Piacenza dives into the concepts relating to astral / subtle realms.

The second edition of JAR editor Gwen Farrell's popular book, Forbidden Questions: A Therapist Talks About Human-ET Contact is available.
It is estimated that millions of people have had contact with extraterrestrial or other-worldly beings, but after millennia of history, decades of investigation and research, and nearly incontrovertible evidence that alien beings have visited Earth, we are still forbidden by society, religion, and science from openly asking questions and discussing this essential part of human history.
This book covers all aspects of the human-UFO contact phenomenon and has been called an encyclopedia of contact.
The author is a therapist, investigator and researcher who has worked many years with people who believe they have had contact with otherworldly beings.
If you are one of those individuals, if you think you might be, but aren't sure, or if you just want to know what's going on, you will find honest, straightforward answers, information, and humor in this fascinating book.

A few weeks ago, there was an informal survey on Twitter. It revealed that the majority of ufologists taking part in the #UFOTwitter discussions were convinced that all the answers regarding the UFO phenomenon could be found by analyzing UFOs. Which is quite baffling…
We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that some of these craft are intelligently operated. So, it would seem obvious that the focus should be on that intelligence that operates these craft. If we want to know, e.g., if they constitute a genuine threat, it is not the actual UFOs that we must pay attention to. Vehicles do not have intentions. Trying to understand the intelligent force or forces behind UFOs solely by observing UFOs, makes about as much sense as trying to understand humanity by observing cars.
And, of course, UFOs are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these intelligences that are engaging us. There is a whole array of different types of contact experiences, ranging from completely benevolent and beneficial to detrimentally brutal abductions. So, these would seem like a good place to start. Yet, they have been pooh-poohed for the last 70 years. To this day, most ufologists prefer to stay as far away from contact experiences as they can. And, as Mike Jamieson’s article illustrates, they have been giving the same impertinent excuses. It should be self-evident that we need to include contact experiences in our research if we want to understand the non-human intelligences we are dealing with.
It does not stop there. We have observed, both in contact experiences and in the ways that UFOs are operated, that they challenge our current understanding of reality. John Mack famously said we may have to refine our definitions of reality if we want to truly understand what is happening. JAR Magazine dedicated a series of articles to this: Series of Articles: Redefining Reality
Anybody who seriously studies this phenomenon inevitably must conclude that consciousness must be added to the equation, too. And that adds yet another dimension to the whole thing.
On Facebook, a contact experiencer recently commented that the current heavy focus on UAP while ignoring the other aspects does not constitute a limited disclosure. Instead, this is a hijacking of the narrative to deliberately steer it in a direction that benefits the Military, and away from the truth. Effectively, the current focus on UAP only turns the clock back by 70 years.
In the articles listed below, several authors from our panel explore different aspects of what was mentioned above.

A rise in recent years of the United States military (and with militaries elsewhere) experiencing encounters with UAPs has assured that this subject has begun it's escape from a toxic atmosphere polluted with the stifling and toxic "gasses" of ridicule and denial. It's very interesting to watch this now unfold. Recent polling by CBS News and then Pew both reveal that 51% of Americans feel some UFOs represent the presence of ET visitors, a jump from the 33% in a 2019 Gallup poll.
Concurrent with the news that began emerging in late December 2017, there has been a perceptible rise in #enduapsecrecy activism on what is now widely known as #ufotwitter. All along there, a consensus has developed on a cautious approach where the "woo-woo" of high strangeness and the oz factor, and cases of close encounters of the third and fourth kind, are bypassed and ignored when trying to lobby the press and others to address this subject. That of course is a sensible approach meant to skillfully draw in serious attention from influential public sectors.
This type of caution among students of UAPs, concerning close encounters with NHI associated with advanced technology beyond ours, are shuffled off to a small hidden room to be quietly examined, has a history which I will note key points from.
I was recently able to gauge in a limited way perspectives concerning this with an online poll for UFOTwitter, 32 voting.
Poll question: "Why do ufologists avoid CE3 cases (in general)?"
- Protect reputation: 21.9%
- Cases not credible: 18.8%
- Harms Ufology credibility: 37.5%
- Other (explain): 21.9%
Responses in comments included some explanations:
"I love them. I'm not saying every single one of these reports is legit but I refuse to believe that zero of them are."
"I think the CE3 cases are the most important to the world today! We NEED to listen to them!"
"Andreasson, Walton, Pascagoula, and many others, but as it's always said--NO EVIDENCE. Well, if you can provide evidence that you are a hot dog a week ago without planning it, let me know."
"Because they go through life wearing blinders."
"We don't ignore them. There just aren't many credible cases."
"Hard to determine what to make of them."
Donald Keyhoe in his 1953 book "Flying Saucers From Outer Space" said he dismissed a letter sent to him from experiencers, a nurse and a salesman traveling a desert road recounted being abducted by "spacemen" because he saw that as an example of the "effect of certain news stories published since 1947". 
Donald Keyhoe was associated with, and an early leader of the National Investigations Committee of Aerial Phenomena (NICAP). In 1964 they published a large-volumed book edited by Richard Hall, "The UFO Evidence".

Exoconscious Humans: Why Consciousness is Integral to Understanding the Visitors
By Rebecca Hardcastle Wright
In August of 2020, the Department of Defense established the UAP Task Force (UAPTF) with a mission to "improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of [Unidentified Aerial Phenomena] UAPs. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security."
This mission launched a project to understand UAPs as an expression of the Visitors by gathering information on their craft and behavior. UAPTF is a scientific study of the Visitor's craft, an arm's length, objective, nuts and bolts enterprise. It is information-driven using advanced technology (satellites, radar, aircraft) and massive data centers to collect and store information. From this information, technicians will develop algorithms to categorize, catalog, and discriminate data and form UAP prediction scenarios using artificial intuition (an advanced form of AI, machine learning).
From the UAP data, engineers will create new materials, crafts, and propulsion systems. These new materials and systems, which are tested by engineers, if promising, will be launched as startups (joint ventures of government-intelligence-military-corporations) to scale this new technology and mainstream its use. A majority of these inventions will serve the space sector for research, mining (rare minerals to sustain the AI sector) , defense, manufacturing, and data storage (satellite Central Bank Digital Currency platforms).
In a nutshell, this is how UAP material science works. It is why the UAPTF report appears as technology and another space race accelerate, removing the veil of secrecy from tested and refined propulsion, craft and space technologies and sourcing funding for future innovations.
Moreover, UAP and AI-Transhuman programs are intricately connected. They provide data for space startups and collaborations, platforms for secure currency systems to finance expensive programs, and for Earth-bound citizens, they prop up one another's narrative (propaganda).
A significant discovery while writing the book is that Transhumanism (synthetic biology, AI, digital currency, behavior, and mind control) is creating an alternative, closed field of information. Transhumanism captures information, thoughts, and behaviors from humans and nature in an artificial field of consciousness. We will inhabit it as genetically engineered hybrid humans, plants, and animals alongside computers and robots. In a short time, humans will operate in this artificial field to live and work on Earth and in space.

Like Manuel Lamiroy from S. Africa recently shared with me, it would be silly to try to understand a civilization only by the cars they make. By all means, the psychic, multidimensional, and contact aspect in ufology has been present since the beginning of the "modern UFO era" and, most likely, also historically throughout human experience. Thus, whether we like it or not, it cannot be divorced from a comprehensive and vital understanding of what may be going on. This is even more so since close encounters (for instance CE-I sightings within 500 feet) also frequently lead – according to witnesses - to an activation of “high strangeness” events that include spatial and temporal anomalies besides psychic phenomena. Thus, whether we like it or, the reality-modifying effects of contact experiences cannot - in all honesty – be avoided. Hence, by trying to remain “objective” under modern, materialist, scientific, single-reality canons which – mistakenly - involve a biased dismissal of the evidence for an interactive presence of non-conventional, ‘otherworldly’ realities, we are, quite frankly, actively trying hide ourselves from what vast accumulated experience and data points to.
Moreover, through proper surveys and testimonies, researchers are finding that individual and collective contact interface with the UFO or UAP entities generally leads to positive transformations in values and personality. So (much like when confronted by a Near-Death Experience), when we are inescapably and emotionally touched on a first person, subjective basis, we are forced to reconsider any narrow worldviews that don’t fit with the experience. We are indeed impelled to expand our mental horizons and to grow up. Extending this fact to the human experience in general may be why contact experiences and experiencer accounts can, after all, be more valuable than the nuts-and-bolts approach.
Of course, when subjectivity and intersubjectivity enter a space of discovery, there's a tendency to embellish or distort, especially when persons supportive of these types of exchanges don-t just tend to be more open-minded but also not too sufficiently scientific, analytical, or demanding of objective validation. However, given the number of reports of veridical experiences had by sane persons all over the world, to say that these experiences (especially if deemed “benevolent”) are wholly bogus is in itself quite unscientific and unreasonable. Therefore, we face an undeniably necessary area of study that demands much more interest and a comprehensive, integrative, and balanced approach.

There is an old joke about a man who lost his keys. A friend saw him searching for hours beneath a streetlamp. "Why keep searching there?" he asked. "Because it's too dark everywhere else."
Without a doubt, close encounters of the first kind (seeing UFOs at distance) and second kind (additional phenomena like ground traces or radio interference) are the most scientific, well-documented, numerous, and credible. They are therefore the most convenient and academically safe areas of Ufology to study.
But what is most convenient and safe tends to be most limited in its scope. The man will never find his keys searching only under the comfort of a streetlamp if they are elsewhere.
It is by adapting our senses to darker territory that we may find the hidden keys needed to unlock our understanding of the alien presence.
This means broadening the scope of our research into diverse fields and using sharper critical thinking skills to better sort signal from noise. Doing so allows one to process circumstantial, anecdotal, mythological, and philosophical data to detect signals that cannot be detected otherwise.
It's important to think more like a detective than a mere lab assistant when attempting to discern the characteristics and motives of the alien presence. This is especially so when it comes to the abduction and contactee phenomenon.
For example, as much as it looks impartial and scientific, one cannot simply put on the white coat and publish a paper analyzing the statistics of how many abductees and contactees have positive versus negative encounters. That says little about the nature of the alien presence. Why? Because it fails to account for screen memories, mind programming, or telepathic persuasion influencing a subject's recall and self-reporting process.
Therefore, investigations should include case studies, personal experience where possible, abductive reasoning and heuristic problem solving, and cross-correlation with a wide variety of parallel research fields.
That makes for a more flexible, holistic, and "smart" approach, analogous to neural networks and fuzzy logic excelling where conventional computing methods fall short.
Potentially useful parallel fields include, but are not limited to:

We are now living in what might as well be called the UAP era of UFO history and the one-time prominent aspect of alien abductions has been widely eclipsed by the current near-exclusive focus on the sightings of lights and crafts. Making this even more marginalizing for the experiencer community is that the discussion is currently being repackaged as Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) and led by the politicians, military, and media who have dismissed all UFO-related phenomenon throughout modern history. UFO witnesses and long-time investigators aren’t being brought to the table as authorities and the discussion suffers for this, particularly in the case of the abduction phenomenon.
Further still, even within the UFO community itself, abductions aren’t being paid proper attention these days. One example of this is Steven Greer’s recently released documentary “Cosmic Hoax.” I was nodding along with the proposition that the U.S. government is manipulating information on the UFO phenomenon…until Greer stated that all reported alien abductions are actually done by human military in a style to hoax extraterrestrial involvement. I understand some of them perhaps, but all of them? As an experiencer who knows many other experiencers, I am disbelief that a prominent spokesperson in the UFO community could make a statement like that. The encounters that I personally had where I was taken against my will were not done by the military.
To be clear, I am not disrespecting Dr. Greer for his point of view. I am wondering, fifty years since the Barney and Betty Hill abduction, how the case apparently hasn’t been sufficiently made for the reality of alien abduction. How many years and how many abductees will it take?
The names of credible abductees who have publicly shared their stories is far too long to list but I will point to one encounter that I think is an outstanding example of alien abduction reality, the Allagash Maine abduction of 1976. Four men were abducted together while camping along the Allagash River and, as they were all artists, produced eerily matching sketches of their shared encounter with strange beings. If these men are being honest, then they were abducted by aliens. And if people are being abducted by aliens, then isn’t this interpersonal aspect the most meaningful feature of the UFO phenomenon?
What makes this perhaps more puzzling is that abductions were once very much in the spotlight. From the late 1970s through late 1990s, the abduction phenomenon enjoyed two decades of prominence before fading.
We did lose two high-visibility investigator champions from that era in Budd Hopkins and Dr. John Mack and perhaps a movement needs public figures like these to rally around. While I honor and thank the many investigators and abductees who currently work hard to try to promote the topic, the majority are situational celebrities at best, known sometimes very well within the UFO community but not outside of it.
By all means, there is indeed good in keeping the current dialogue of UAPs going. Please, however, also recognize that folks are persistently being taken by non-human entities. This is worth paying some serious attention to…right? I guess those of us in this corner just need to shout a little louder these days.
