In the tortuously tangled web of conspiracy theory, there is endlessly spun the element of fear and mistrust. Who in that shadowy realm is really in charge, and how afraid should we be of losing our freedoms – such as they are – to the ambitions of a “deep state” that operates without public scrutiny and seeks to control every aspect of our public and private lives?
And does this shadow government possess advanced forms of technology that they keep secret as they quietly go about the business of subduing the entire planet to their willful control? Have they conquered outer space and colonized the moon and even Mars under our trusting noses?
This is one of the questions tackled in “Nikola Tesla Journey To Mars Update: Exposing the Existence of the Secret Space Program,” in which certain possibilities are dealt with openly and without fear of the debunkers.
We are concerned here with the idea of a Secret Space Program and the innovators who may have made it possible. It is theorized that Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest scientists of the modern era, developed an antigravity form of propulsion that was used to go to Mars.
TIM SWARTZ DISCOVERS THE TESLA/MARS CONNECTION
The book includes a Q and A I conducted with Tesla expert Tim R. Swartz, who told me of a strange statement made to him by J. Allen Hynek, the astronomer and UFO chaser who was once the lead investigator for the Air Force’s Project Blue Book. Some years after the closing of Project Blue Book, Swartz was working as a journalist for a television station in Dayton, Ohio, home to Wright Patterson Air Force Base (which is said to house the dead alien bodies recovered from the Roswell Incident, among other UFO legends) when Hynek made an appearance there.
Hynek was at the base to deliver a talk on the new exhibit of Project Blue Book artifacts and Swartz was covering the story for his television station. As Swartz was packing up his camera equipment and preparing to leave, the two men discussed television technology, which led to a further discussion on the role of Tesla in developing what would later become television.
“Hynek brought up the subject of the Tesla/Mars project,” Swartz said. “And I was like, ‘What?’ And he told me that there were files possessed by the Air Force that talked about Tesla’s attempt to send a spacecraft to Mars. Now that was all he knew about it. But he had heard, from what he said were reliable sources, that Tesla had been involved in a project that involved a group of wealthy men from the East Coast that were building an aircraft in the middle and late 1800s. And that these were the aircraft being reported during the ‘flying machine flap’ that started in California in 1896.
“Hynek told me that this was one of the reasons,” Swartz continued, “that the United States government confiscated Tesla’s notes when he died. That, and Tesla had been saying that he had invented a Death Ray and had tried to sell it to the highest bidder.”
When Tesla passed away, many of his confiscated notes and papers ended up at Wright-Patterson, where further research was being done with the material.
TECHNOLOGY BROADCAST THROUGH THE ETHER
The wealthy group of men referred to above weren’t just pulling the new technology out of thin air – or were they? Swartz said one story has it that the men were receiving communications from a spirit medium, probably around the mid-19th century. This really opens up the possibility of a supernatural, nonhuman source for the information, an entity with a vested interest in getting mankind to Mars quickly and with no public fanfare.
“They started to get messages from spirits,” Swartz explained, “and eventually communication professing to be an intelligence from the Planet Mars. These channeled messages started feeding technological information that led to the development of early flying machines.”
Further along, in 1899, Tesla built an experimental lab in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he was hoping to learn to harness lightning as a source of electricity. Tesla began to hear strange, rhythmic radio signals on his low-frequency radio receiver. He later wrote that he was the first person to hear the sound of one planet greeting another.
“When the newspapers picked up the story,” Swartz said, “the so-called ‘Martian Messages’ created a firestorm of debate. No one had ever heard regular signals from space, and Tesla concluded that they must be from living creatures on a nearby planet, such as Mars.”
Tesla was then approached by the secret East Coast-based group, who called themselves the Aero Club and claimed they had been receiving the same mysterious radio signals as Tesla.
“Tesla’s mission was to help the Aero Club develop an aerial machine,” Swartz said, “that could fly them into space and onto Mars. Most likely, Tesla considered this group to be peopled by suicidal madmen. But obviously, after seeing the results of their earlier successful airships, Tesla could have been caught up in the enthusiasm of making such a grand project a reality.”
All this information is taken from the rare manuscript, reprinted in its entirety in “Nikola Tesla Journey To Mars Update,” and makes for fascinating reading. There is much more to the Tesla/Mars story for readers to discover on their own.
NOT JUST ANOTHER PRETTY ARYAN FACE
In a manner similar to the group that drafted Tesla, the Germanic mediums of the Vril Society, which consisted of beautiful blonde women that were the physical embodiment of the Aryan ideal, received advanced technological information from an extraterrestrial civilization existing light years away in the Constellation of Taurus. The transmissions held the key to constructing circular flying craft capable of traveling around the world at great speed as well as exiting the Earth’s uppermost atmospheric levels.
Many believe that some of the information gathered by the mysterious females in the early 20th century was eventually exploited by Hitler for the sake of warfare and maintaining his dictatorial authority. And, as with the Tesla story, the Nazis may have used the channeled information to actually travel to the moon and Mars on spacecraft totally unheard of by the general public in their time or our own.
SHOULD WE BELIEVE IN A SECRET SPACE PROGRAM?
So far we have presented here the bare bones of two separate Secret Space Programs, that of Nikola Tesla and the Nazis, programs shrouded in history and hidden from the world at large but nevertheless compellingly believable. But what’s happening in these terms today? Why believe in a Secret Space Program?
For that we turned to Richard Dolan, one of the most respected figures in the UFO community. In a field crowded by overzealous believers and fringe “contactees,” Dolan has firmly established a reputation as a researcher and author who relies primarily on public and proven sources, or at least sources whose background can be verified in real-world terms. He has written two very influential books on the government cover-up of the UFO phenomenon, “UFOs and the National Security State,” Volumes One and Two, that provide thorough research into the history of the clandestine, black budget response of the US military and intelligence community to the alien presence.
We asked Dolan, why should we believe in a Secret Space Program?
One crucial factor, according to Dolan, is the many anomalous events witnessed by both American and Soviet astronauts beginning in the mid-1960s. We also have the evidence of what are known as DSP satellites, or Defense Support Program satellites.
“These are a series of geosynchronous satellites in Earth orbit,” Dolan explained, “that have a long record of tracking ‘fast-walkers’ in space. That is, objects that are like a space UFO.”
Dolan said that from 1973 to 1991, nearly 300 “unknowns” were recorded by the DSP satellites, a number of which were really bizarre. For example, around 1984, one of the special satellites recorded an object that approached it very closely and then ominously moved away into deep space. The information comes to us almost by accident. A friend of Dolan’s who worked for many years at an aerospace company received mistakenly, but not illegally, a printout of some DSP “fast-walker” events.
Dolan said his point is a simple one.
“You’ve got those events and quite a few others that are intriguing,” Dolan said, “and which tell me there is something going on in Earth’s orbit that’s not being officially explained. It would seem to me very logical that just as there would be a covert monitoring of the UFO phenomenon within Earth’s atmosphere and on the ground and so forth, if there are anomalous activities going on in space, then clearly you would want an agency to monitor that as well, to deal with it. And that would necessitate the creation of a very clandestine component to the U.S. space program.”
But what about some of the wilder claims, like our having traveled to the moon and Mars in secret? Dolan says he has spoken to people he considers credible who affirm that there is a secret program connected with the moon. Concerning Mars, he says he’s never gotten anything that would allow him to say confidently one way or the other, but, he added, he would not be shocked to learn that we had traveled to Mars by the means of recovered alien technology.
“Every conclusion in science,” he said, “is provisional and contingent on more information coming your way.”
Dolan also has opinions on the Nazis ability to travel to the stars.
“The Nazis were quite sophisticated,” he said, “in their science of what we would call ‘flying saucer technology.’ We now know this.”
But Dolan also cautions that those who believe that UFOs are all a product of Nazi technology need to do a little more research into the phenomenon itself. UFOs were sighted long before the Nazis came to power in the 1930s, and the fact remains that UFOs may be piloted by nonhuman entities of no particular political stripe.
“It’s either a very, very clandestine human intelligence that exists as a longstanding secret society – of course we need to find their manufacturing plant and where the hell they’re located – or we’re dealing with nonhumans here that are interacting with Planet Earth. I actually think the latter theory is more likely, but there certainly is a clandestine human power structure. I don’t dispute that.”
THE BREAKAWAY CIVILIZATION
How could such powerful technology exist right under our oblivious noses? Who could keep things like traveling to Mars a secret? Dolan answers by way of something he calls a “Breakaway Civilization.”
“I think that this is something that is real,” he said. “Now, my theory of it is that it originated in post-World War II society, but there’s nothing preventing such a thing from having happened earlier. The basic idea of the ‘Breakaway Civilization’ is simply that you have a secret group, a classified group of people, with access to radically advanced technology, radically advanced science, and they just don’t share it with the rest of the world. One scientific breakthrough leads to another, and that leads to another and so on. So the next thing you know, you’ve got a separate group of humanity that is far beyond the rest of the world.”
Dolan compared the situation to our own “official” world history of 200 years ago, for example, when the level of technology achieved by Europe was contrasted with, say, Central Africa.
“You’re talking about two vastly different ways understanding the world,” Dolan said. “So, really, what is the difficulty in understanding that a classified, secret, scientific community would make radical breakthroughs that they wouldn’t share? I don’t think it’s outrageous, and I do think this has happened since World War II. Now, one of the breakthroughs they’ve made is what we would call ‘antigravity technology.’ Could this have happened in the 19th century? I don’t think it’s impossible, in theory.”
Dolan confessed that he sometimes speculated privately that such a secret breakaway group has existed since ancient times. Some of history’s most puzzling mysteries, like the Great Pyramid of Giza or Macchu Picchu, don’t make a lot of sense in architectural terms in the context of human society in their given eras.
“I wonder if this was a human construct at the time,” Dolan queried, “and what human civilization are we talking about here? So I leave open the possibility that some great secret would be understood by a very small, elect group of people. They would want to hide this from the rest of the world for obvious reasons – power, and just not wanting to share.”
Was Nikola Tesla one of the hidden few who kept his scientific advances a closely guarded secret? Did he lead his clandestine group of wealthy patrons on a trip to Mars with antigravity technology that he barely understood himself? Did some off-world civilization telepathically implant space-faring technology into Tesla or the Vril group? Was our current space age jumpstarted by messages given to mediums during extraterrestrial séances?
In the absence of publicly available, irrefutable, absolute proof, one can only speculate, as Richard Dolan makes clear. It all seems a little “beyond” us mere mortals, something our minds could not conjure independently. But if the knowledge of this secret group eventually takes us to the stars, we will surely find whatever guiding force – or breakaway civilization – has summoned us to join them.
