'Top 8 Presidential Encounters of the Third Kind...'

Times journalist Daniel Finkelstein has compiled a list of eight former presidents, or current presidential candidates, all of whom have had encounters with UFOs. Some strange facts emerge: when the Ohio Democrat Dennis Kucinich saw what his friend Shirley MacLaine describes as 'a gigantic triangular craft', he 'felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.' It was a similar sighting that influenced Jimmy Carter to run for President, describing the phenomenon as 'a light beckoning me to run in the California primary.' Interestingly, both Carter and Ford promised to release the evidence on UFOs to the public, to little avail; the subject also exercised Bill Clinton. But the politician with the keenest fascination in ET was unquestionably Ronald Reagan, who became the first US President to publicly debate the logistics of an alien attack. (On at least three seperate occasions.) The most famous of these was in an address to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations on September 21, 1987, during which the former President mused: 'In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.'

Thanks Todd, great find.

Anything to help...

This alien story is much bigger here than I originally thought when I heard about it. Questions were posed in the debate the other night inquiring about it. I think it's a way to marginalize one another.

'felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind' - hmmm VALIS/SPECTRA/MANDI ...

BTB said...

That was my immediate reaction, David, yes.

A question for your good self, if I may. Are MANDI and SPECTRA synonyms of VALIS, or separate 'programmes'?

David said...

SPECTRA is what gave Uri Geller his mojo before it left him and Uri had to start faking it or go back to Israel and work in the family import/export business...

And Uri, if I am wrong - SUE ME! Let's have the full marvellous story out in court.

MANDI is almost certainly a synonym of VALIS (obviously not a PKD one, for that we have ZEBRA).

Personally, I think VALIS, MANDI, SPECTRA and all the others are but facets of one force. The name changes, some different paintjobs, but still the same time travel and AI linkage - regardless of whether it claims to be a computer on a alien spacecraft in orbit, a time travelling super-computer from the future in orbit or a sentient computer from the future that expresses itself by appearing to people as hotel.
