NAZI TECHNOLOGY AND ETS: A RESPONSE TO A BLOGNovember 5, 2012
Few people can read my books on the emergence of Nazi technology and come away with the impression that I believe that the entire miserific development of the Third Reich has to do with contact with extraterrestrials or crash-and-recovery effeorts. I have made it abundantly clear that I regard the attempt at grounding this technological achievement in stories of extra-terrestrial contact, or crash-and-recovery memes, as a kind of philosophical and methodological dead end. In my most recent book on the subject, Saucers, Swastikas, and Psyops, I wrote this in the preface:
"You are about to embark on reading a book populated by a whole host of bizarre characters, strange concepts, and sources that are of dubious standing, from Neo-Nazis, to famous early UFO "contactees," to more reputable sources such as engineers in the loftiest reaches of the military-industrial complex, tenured historians in academia, UFOlogists, and the even stranger relationships between all of them. For the past few years now, I have written a series of books exploring exotic Nazi technology and have attempted to rationalize its achievements on the basis of terrestrial science and engineering principles that were known at the time. In pursuing this story, I have also attempted to survey in many previous books the implications of this technology for history. (Emphasis added)
"In presenting the conclusions of this research throughout those books, and then as a guest speaker at some conferences, I have invariably been asked by a certain type of what may best be called “UFO-ET religionist” if all this explosion of technology during the Nazi era was not best explained by them having recovered a crashed UFO and reverse-engineered it. Needless to say, after having written several books on the Nazi Bell story and attempting to rationalize its various details as best as I can, I find such questions irritating at one level and – to be honest – insulting at another, for why bother to research the subject at all if any claims for the existence of an exotic technology, Nazi or otherwise, is to be explained by such a procedure?"
In other words, for me, the introduction of such memes only short circuits the process of trying to investigate a speculative rationalization of such achievements on the basis of terrestrial science. And I have said, over and over, in interview after interview, that I do not place much stock in stories of Nazi contact with ET, or in crash-and-recovery scenarios, in a kind of Nazi version of Roswell.
You can therefore imagine my surprise when I discovered that the above book was recently mentioned in the blog of Ms. Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot fame. Under a section heading entitled "A Word About the History of ET Technology Acquisition" the following paragraphs occur:
"It is known that Tesla was himself, was aware that he was 'in contact' with an unknown race of off-planet beings who downloaded to him the key concepts behind certain technology. In describing the history of our interaction with off-world (and inter/intra dimensional races and the acquisition of special technologies, you can, for example, go back to the days of Eisenhower and his famed meeting with at least 2 groups of ETs (Greys and Nordics) at Muroch Air Force Base (now known as Edwards Air Force Base). However, that is just one of many places to start. From all indications, …”we are not alone and we have never been alone”, to quote Command Sergeant Robert O. Dean, a whistleblower who violated his security oath in order to inform the people regarding the truth behind the reality of ET visitation.
"Another logical place (well documented by scholars and researchers such as Jim Marrs (THE FOURTH REICH) and Joseph Farrell, (author of SAUCERS, SWASTIKAS AND PSYOPS: A History of A Breakaway Civilization: Hidden Aerospace Technologies and Psychological Operations), is to go back to the days of the Nazis and the establishment of the German high command. They made contact with a race of ETs through the Vril Society (a small group of women who were "channeling"). The Nazis are also said to have conducted careful research into the flying saucers of India called Vimanas (chronicled in the great writings such as the Upanishads etc). They are also known to have confiscated and horded hidden archeological records and relics of inestimable value for scientific study… Because of this, Nazis made huge leaps forward into technologies involving space and time travel. (see the Nazi Bell and Camelot interview with Igor Witkowsky)." (Emphasis added).

This is intriguing to me on any number of levels, since I did not mention the Vril society/channeling episode at any length in Saucers, Swastikas, and Psyops, but rather, in the third chapter of The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, and then in terms that I believe were sufficiently disparaging to be clear that the story remains just that: a story, but hardly the basis of Nazi research behind the Bell. Indeed, I have tried repeatedly to maintain that my reconstruction of the Bell and the possible process of reasoning behind it is speculative, and I have tried to point to the exemplars in the scientific and engineering literature of the day that I believe might have underwritten it. But it remains speculation, and in my opinion, no ETs were involved at all.
Indeed, the sentence claiming this view - under the section heading of "A Word About the History of ET Technology Acquisition" remember - is in itself so historically questionable that it almost beggars belief. The simple fact is, the German High Command was not created or "established" by the Nazis. The command structure of the Reich pre-existed the Nazi rise to power, and at best, all that might be argued is that the Nazis re-organized the command structure they inherited from the Weimar Republic, and that, in turn, from the Kaiser's Germany. Indeed, during the interwar period and long before the Nazis came to power, General Hans von Seekt had deliberately constructed theReichsheerwith the view that re-armament was an inevitability, and that the small army would form the nucleus officer corps for a vastly expanded German military, and these plans included the command structure.
But to return to the main point: I utterly disavow any attempt to suggest that I believe, or that I have anywhere, in any of my works, argued or implied that any Nazi technological achievements, howsoever one might rationalize the science behind them, are the result of ET contact by the Germans, by any means, channeling or otherwise. I continue to regard such suggestions, having written now almost a thousand pages on the subject, as insulting. There are, of course, people who believe and think that, and they are free to do so. I do not, so do not number me among them, and I believe that anyone with more than a passing familiarity with my work will understand and recognize that ET is not any factor in my methodological approach.
