Following the scientific method to a conclusion based in scriptures was NOT how I ever dreamed my UFO research would end. My old world view literally died away. As it was falling away I experienced the many Kübler-Ross stages of grief. I felt my old, agnostic world view die away only to be replaced by something foreign, something new, something unknown- religious scriptures.
In every sense of the word, my worldview was reborn but not in the way I had anticipated.
When I started my UFO/ UAP research I followed the scientific method. I formulated a hypothesis, I figured out the best way to test my hypothesis & then I compared my evidence to my hypothesis to decide if I proved or disproved my initial hypothesis.
Applying the scientific method to a field of study like UFO/ UAP is difficult for a plethora of reasons. Obviously, none of this happens in a laboratory setting with variables that are controlled, the evidence is scant, a lot of the evidence comes from witness reports which are known to be unreliable & it is all complicated by social stigma & pranksters. Additionally, once suggestion is introduced through hypnosis, the witness no longer has a reliable recollection.
However, I did the best I could with what I had available to me for 33 years. I started with the two most obvious hypotheses: 1) extra terrestrials 2) military/ DOD/ foreign projects.
The UFO/ UAP phenomenon is complex & comprised of multiple things from misidentified mylar, childrens balloons to military equipment to crafts with capabilities that can not be explained by conventional, current, scientific knowledge. My interest has always been the latter because that is what I personally experienced & know to be true yet my experience is not easily explained by current science.
Since I could not control variables or take lab measurements I decided to look for patterns. When I began searching for patterns things began to click. I found patterns that exist not just now but patterns & archetypes that extend back, consistently, to our oldest recorded history. That was when my research led me down the paths of history, religion & scripture.
I decided to look at one specific aspect of the phenomenon- gold disks. I chose this for many reasons. First, I know they exist because that was my experience. Second, the Buddhists in Thailand seem to think they’re significant considering they built the world’s largest religious complex in the shape of one.
Third, the disk phenomenon can be traced back through multiple different religions & countries. It’s an archetype & it’s ubiquitous. Finally, and I find this interesting, when the United States sent out the Voyager we sent out a gold disk. What an incredible coincidence!
I remember my first trip to Europe, as a teenager. I saw the below painting, in person, and in jest I blurted out as a loud, obnoxious teenager “oh, there’s the first UFO sighting, haha.” It took me many decades to realize what I had unintentionally stumbled upon as a teenager. Is it a documented UFO sighting from the 15th century?
Did I find proof positive, 100% that extra terrestrials are or have been here? It depends upon how one defines “extra terrestrial.”
I absolutely found evidence, without a shadow of a doubt, of patterns. I found patterns & archetypes that are as old as recorded history itself.
My conclusion, after 33 years of research into UFOs, UAP, MUFON, psychology, archaeology, sociology, art history, folklore, world religions, theology, history, medicine, physics & hundreds of first person interviews is that there is an ancient presence that has existed on this Earth. It is documented in stone in our oldest known writings.
I found this conclusion, that there is an undeniable ancient presence on this Earth that is documented in sacred scriptures around the world to be extremely difficult to incorporate into my purely scientific world view. I grew up with two moms, no religious or spiritual teachings & science was the road to all answers. However, I also knew I had an experience that involved a gold disk & it was very, very real. Reconciling the two led me to unexpected places & I found something I didn’t have before… spirituality & faith. My entire worldview was shattered but reborn, in every sense of the word.
As I refined my hypothesis, that this is an ancient phenomenon documented in scripture, I found more and more evidence which truly rocked my world & startled me to my core. When I put together the mystery of Ezekiel’s wheel, I found myself shaking in gratitude to a force I KNOW exists & has existed for a very, very long time. I was so humbled.
Do you see “wheels within wheels” & “eyes all around the rim?” Does it make sense now?
I have so much more research to publish. It is my great honor to have had an encounter with something so ancient & so divine. I believe I understand the kind of drive that may have motivated my ancestor, William Tyndale, to dedicate his life to interpreting the scriptures to bring to “the boy who ploughs the fields.” Did he also have a divine encounter? It’s well known that UAP encounters run in families along family lines.
I think I should have just listened to my Grandpa Tindal, God rest his soul. After he came back from WW2 he got work on the Pennsylvania railroad. One morning, when he was working near the Ohio river, before dawn, he said that he & his crew witnessed a craft, all lit up, ascend out of the river. He reported that it arose vertically out of the river & then it took off so quickly & also so low that he & the other guys had to duck. The last time I saw him he told me, “Teresa, whatever they are they are very, very ancient & they have been here for a very, very long time.” I learned about more than just UFOs that day. I learned that I should have listened more to my grandparents & now I understand why they immersed themselves so wholeheartedly in church.
