“The evidence is overwhelming that Planet Earth is being visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft. In other words, SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft. Most are not. It’s clear from the Opinion Polls and my own experience, that indeed most people accept the notion that SOME UFOs are alien spacecraft. The greater the education, the MORE likely to accept this proposition” – Stanton T. Friedman
“Part of the popularity of the whole flying saucer mystique is, in my opinion, the ease with which the extraterrestrials can be looked upon as a new scientific version of angels.” – Isaac Asimov
Interesting thing. I found the Asimov comment and then lost the source page. However, I do still have the Reddit page. Asimov on Reddit. And the related content link. Asimov writes about Aliens and UFOs. This list is courtesy of a fan. Link.
Opposite ends of the coin. Issac Asimov and Stanton Friedman. Medium.
When Stanton Friedman died in May 2019 he had compiled an incredible (massive) archive of UFO related material. Considered an authority on UFOs, alien abductions and Roswell, he also wrote three books with Kathleen Marden, niece of Betty and Barney Hill.
His daughter, Melissa, donated much of Stanton’s records, archives, and memorabilia to the Fredericton Region Museum. [About all those records: Link.] That collection is now on exhibit at the Museum. Link.
Rabbit Hole #1 Alien Interview
Alien Interview by Lawrence R. Spencer (Author)
The content of this book is the letter, official Top Secret U.S. Army Air Force interview transcripts and personal notes I received from the late Matilda O’Donnell MacElroy. Her letter to me asserts that this material is based on a series of interviews she conducted with an extraterrestrial being as part of her official duty as a nurse in the U.S. Army Air Force.
In a letter received with the transcripts, Mrs. MacElroy says: “Mankind needs to know the answers to questions which are contained in these documents: Who are we? Where did we come from? What is our purpose on Earth? If there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe why have they not contacted us? It is vital that people understand the devastating consequences to our physical and spiritual survival if we fail to take effective action to undo the long-standing and pervasive effects of alien intervention on Earth.”
- The origins of this universe began with the creation of individual, illusionary spaces. These were the “home” of the IS-BE. Sometimes a universe is a collaborative creation of illusions by two or more IS-BEs.
- The entire back time track of IS-BEs is immeasurable, nearly infinite in terms of physical universe time. There is no measurable “beginning” or “end” for an IS-BE. They simply exist in an everlasting now.

Of interest. Reddit Subgroup Alien Interview.
Author: Lawrence Spencer. He steps back and hands everything off as fiction. Or not.
Time – (Here we go again.) Alien perspective, add space to the equation.
- “Time is simply an arbitrary measurement of the motion of objects through space.”
- “Time can also be sensed as a vibration which is uniform throughout the entire physical universe.” Alien Interview: continued.
Rabbit Hole #2 Rock and UFOs
“At first, I was convinced it was an aircraft,…however, it acted most peculiarly. What was really strange was that when this thing passed nearby, there was no traffic on the road in either direction, and there were none of the usual nocturnal animal or bird noises.” Moody Blues drummer Graeme Edge
The story retold. Link.
The song that resulted from their UFO encounter is a favorite.
The print of the original (I believe) article is posted to a chat forum. The featured page of Flying Saucer Review includes Graeme Edge’s drawing of the being. (Mental Impression.) Link.
Prolific UFO researcher and author Grant Cameron has published one book with a collection of paranormal and UFO stories – and a wide variety of other anomalous accounts from musicians who have spoken about their encounters and notes the songs resulting from or attributed to their event.
Book: Tuned-In: The Paranormal World of Music
Two songs mentioned in the interview:
Kashmir – Led Zeppelin, Lyrics
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I’m a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed. Continued.
Neil Young – After The Gold Rush, Lyrics
Well, I dreamed I saw the silver space ships flyin’
In the yellow haze of the sun
There were children cryin’ and colors flyin’
All around the chosen ones
All in a dream, all in a dream
The loadin’ had begun
Flying Mother Nature’s silver seed
To a new home in the sun
Flying Mother Nature’s silver seed
To a new home… Continued.
I really do have more stuff to work on now — but this was a wonderful diversion …
Rabbit Hole #3 the Condon Report
“It would seem that the whole must be studied to understand the significance of the parts, and the phenomenon would seem to be multiple in case and diffuse in source.
There is no simple, single explanation of the UFO phenomenon that can be applied to all cases described in the literature.” – UFOs and Related Subjects: An Annotated Bibliography, Lynn E. Catoe

Might be that some of this is familiar as it was sourced for The Condon Report. Colorado.edu.
And the current NASA position on searching for ETs. More focus on those ‘out there’ in the galaxy. Less concern with that which might require more serious investigation on the home front. Apparently, still unwilling to validate the presence of anything beyond our science. Vice.
“There are no acceptable arguments against flying saucer reality, only people who either haven’t studied the relevant data or have a strong will not to believe that Earth is at the bottom of the heap sociologically and technologically in our local galactic neighborhood.” – Stanton T. Friedman
