Secret Consultation and the Soul

In the summer of 2007, after digging further into data that Ray Boeche had given me several months earlier that led me on the trail of the Collins Elite (whose activities I detailed in my Final Events book), I had the opportunity to conduct a face-to-face interview with a now-retired university professor in the field of Theology.

"Two government people" had secretly consulted him on some of the central themes of Final Events in September 1972. The initial consultation occurred at the professor’s place of work, and the reasoning behind the consultation was simple, but disturbing, too.

The two men identified themselves as employees of the Department of Defense, said they were "very knowing" of his work, and represented a group who believed that the many tales of extraterrestrial visitations that had surfaced since the 1940s were actually evidence of the presence of satanic forces engaging in worldwide deceit, and who had two, key goals in mind.

Those goals were to (A) encourage and entice the Human Race to follow their dark ways, and (B) to ensnare the souls of one and all for reasons that not even the Bible touched upon, but that were apparently related to the "ingestion" of the human life-force in some not-exactly-understood fashion.

Having been "slightly more than gently nudged not to speak on this" with colleagues, the media, friends, and family, the professor was asked if he would be willing to prepare a detailed report for the group on his knowledge of, and extensive research into, three specific issues: the nature of the human-soul, the concept and agenda of demons, and the role played by fallen-angels with respect to deception as described in the Bible.

He agreed and was given a telephone number where he could always reach the pair. Six weeks later or so, his report completed, the professor placed his call, and the two men duly came back again.

They thanked him for his time, and having handed over his paper, which ran to around 130 pages, he received a "very nice" payment for his efforts, courtesy of Uncle Sam. Given the clandestine nature of the experience, the professor somewhat wryly titled the document "To Whom It May Concern."

Before the two men left, they asked him if he would be willing to speak on the subject of his paper for the group. Nothing ultimately ever came of this offer, however, even though the professor was both quite agreeable and open to the idea of presenting a lecture on the nature of his report.

Intriguingly, of the thirteen members of the Collins Elite with whom I was able to speak, all denied any knowledge of this affair, which raises an interesting possibility: there may perhaps be more than one group in government secretly studying the "Demonic UFO" theory...


  1. Hiya Nick, I've enjoyed this series of posts.

    This situation is suggestive of myth-making. The cloak and dagger spookiness appears, to me, somewhat contrived.

    By the early 70s, any number of university departments would have been able to supply papers and books that covered demons, souls and inferred schemes of Biblical entities. What's more, these shady characters could have just as easily accessed the libraries of any good university without needing to 'show their hand.'

    If we take the professor's account as essentially accurate, the question arises of why all the drama? What did they seek to achieve with this theatre? Why choose this particular prof?

    The early 70s had heightened Cold War tensions and maybe the Prof was being sounded out for his affiliations?

    There also seems to be a foreshadowing of the late-70s to mid-80s dark side of ufology themes. From demons feasting on souls to evil aliens feasting on vats of human bio-matter; much of a muchness?

  2. K:

    It certainly could be. I've denied the idea that I could have been deceived, and Ray Boeche could have been deceived, both of having met some of these people.

    But, if it is contrived in some way, it's not only been going on a long time (Ray had his first meet in 1991), but is not being circulated to a large degree. After all, Ray has only spoken about this a few times, my books don't sell in large numbers, so what's the motivation if someone in government is myth-making? If it is myth-making, it's only reaching a small minority, which seems illogical to me.

  3. K:
    In the opening words of my comment above, I wrote "I've denied the idea..." I meant, of course: I've NEVER denied the idea..."
    My mistake!

  4. No, I wasn't trying to say you've been deceived.

    I was pointing out the unnecessary sneakiness of the guys who apparently approached the prof.

    Somewhere in the heart of ufology are a bunch of people polluting the well with tales of demons, Holloman landings and all that other stuff. There's something thematic that's hard to put a finger on, but I'm keeping notes.

    I was sort of thinking out loud that maybe the guys who approached the prof were involved in the myth-making.

    The overt secrecy seems clumsy enough to be deliberate. That the Collins guys denied all knowledge could mean anything.

    I understand your point that nobody made a big deal about it until you did the digging. It could also be that a myth-making exercise was not carried through and was abandoned still-born?

    As a Brit, you'll understand an 'Allo 'Allo reference...'Shhhh...It is I Leclair!' There's something stagey about the circumstances.

  5. I would definitely agree there's an agenda somewhere in all this, and there certainly is a staged angle to it. But the challenge is to understand why. Maybe it's a testing of the waters, gauge people's reactions, confuse the UFO subject more and more. Unfortunately, while the list goes on and on, the hard answers do not!
