Is there some THING on the Moon?

Astronaut Ed Mitchell Says Aliens Walk Among Us (Maybe)

( -- In 1971, Apollo astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell walked on the Moon.

Mitchell is one of only twelve humans to have explored the lunar surface.

Recently, I contacted Dr. Mitchell by email, after reading about the forthcoming fictionalized lunar mission film 'Apollo 18' -- "there's a reason we've never gone back to the moon" -- concerning what he may or may not know about an alleged alien presence.

(Meanwhile, questions have been raised about when 'Apollo 18' will be landing in theaters. Currently the film is said to be on schedule for a September 2, 2011 release date.)

Are there extraterrestrial aliens based on the Moon? And how much does NASA, or anyone else in the US government, know?

The source of the 'aliens on the moon' story worked with the CIA and later held a TOP SECRET clearance for his contribution to a clandestine effort to obtain intelligence using "unusual sources and methods."

According to this source, Ingo Swann, there is something very strange happening on the far side of the Moon.

In his out-of-print book Penetration, Swann related how, in 1975, he was recruited by an ultra-secret black-ops group interested in special observations of specific lunar coordinates.

When Swann checked the coordinates, he was shocked to see humanoid beings and artificial constructions on the lunar surface, all bathed in an eerie green fog.

Ingo Swann was recruited by American intelligence services -- we have US government files which confirm this -- to use his extraordinary human skills to psychically penetrate targets outside of the range of conventional observation.

The problem with Swann's far-out story is that the 'observations' were made with his mind's eye.

Swann was America's best psychic spy, following the untimely death of Pat Price, another star in CIA's covert program to use paranormal phenomena for remote viewing of intelligence targets.

As for the alleged black ops interested in lunar interlopers? Even Swann does not know -- or at the least, he isn't telling.

So when I contacted astronaut Mitchell, I naturally inquired if he knew anything about visitors inhabiting our nearest neighbor in space, noting that Kit Green, a former CIA analyst who consults to the US Defense Intelligence Agency on emerging technology threats, had come forward about government contact with alleged extraterrestrial biological entities (see Mark Pilkington's book Mirage Men and my own Spies, Lies, and Polygraph Tape for further information on the alleged alien presence).

"Gary, glad to exchange with you on these issues. I don't know that I have perfect answers, but I do have some, " Mitchell replied. He did seem quite skeptical about Ingo Swann's 'remote viewed' alien presence.

"Very suspicious of Ingo's claims about black ops and aliens on the moon," wrote Mitchell, who then added, "It is certainly possible and even likely that ETs have had operations on and around the moon, but nothing that we (NASA astronauts) have seen and reported."

This was not exactly what lunar conspiracy theorists wanted to hear, but at least Mitchell left the door open for otherworldly possibilities.

During the Apollo 14 mission to the Moon, Mitchell conducted unauthorized ESP tests. Later he founded the Institute of Noetic Sciences to explore the nature of human consciousness. He has also reported on very strange, seemingly psychokinetic events in his book, The Way of the Explorer, so I asked if he was aware of recent revelations that former NSA Senior Official Thomas Drake had been experimenting with Chris Robinson, a psychic spy from England.

Mitchell replied that he was unaware of Drake's involvement in the psychic spy business, but then he threw me a curve ball.

"I know of quite a few credible stories of ET communication with earthlings."

Were some of our fellow space travelers on this island Earth tapped into the cosmic version of Facebook, I wondered? Ingo Swann had more or less suggested this possibility in his book back in 1998, when he noted the lunar alien presence seemed to use a kind of "telepathy plus" version of mental communication.

I knew from US government files that in the 1990s, elements within the Department of Defense were exploring the possibility of using telepathy for battlefield communications. A source to Jon Ronson for his book The Men Who Stare at Goats had relayed the same story.

Another astronaut, the late Gordon Cooper, also related stories of an associate who had "telepathic" contact with sources from beyond the Earth. Cooper allegedly provided technical information concerning space shuttle design flaws sourced from a telepathic alien contact.

I wondered if Mitchell suspected a covert extraterrestrial alien presence among us.

"I suspect they are walking among us," wrote Mitchell, "-- highbreds possibly [sic]  -- and certainly panspermia is [a] plausible hypothesis."

Mitchell wasn't the only connected person suggesting that aliens walk among us. During his encounter with the black ops lunar explorers, Ingo Swann had an encounter with a beautiful woman in a Los Angeles supermarket, while being watched by two of the black ops operatives. The circumstances led Swann to conclude that he had an encounter of the close kind. But do aliens wear halter tops, mini-skirts, and platforms?

Maybe they did in the 1970s.

Or perhaps Swann had been "spooked" by intelligence operatives who wanted to test his response to unusual circumstances.

Ultimately, according to Swann, they took him to Alaska to eye-witness an unidentified laser-firing drone that mysteriously appeared from a mist over a lake.

So where does this leave all of the conspiracy advocates who swear there is a government cover-up?

Mitchell suggested the conspiracy was real, but was not based in any official government institution.

"I question 'government secrecy', but believe Eisenhower's warning about the 'military industrial complex' is more to the point," Mitchell wrote to me, "There seemingly is a global cabal trying to keep the wraps on the ET presence for their own reasons (profit?), but it is starting to unravel and will likely come apart before long."

A global cabal? Secretly receiving their instructions by telepathic messages from the great beyond?

And what of the story of telepathic contact at space entrepreneur Bob Bigelow's Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, where a physicist was allegedly held captive in a telepathic trance by unknown intelligent entities?

Perhaps the answer would be found in the alleged NSA paranormal program. One NSA source, allegedly working within the project, claimed that NSA operatives had been blocked in their effort by extraterrestrial interference from an unknown source.

Will we ever know the truth? Is the truth really "out there" or is the truth already too far-out for the rest of us to fathom?
