The "Cosmic Frontier" Essays ©
by Mauro Porto
When dealing with extraterrestrial and ufological matters I use to
introduce myself as a retired Brazilian electronics engineer, aged 65, that has been,
since a long time, one of those able to testify on the reality of the "nuts and
bolts" highly advanced kind of UFO because one of them crossed the highway near
enough to stall the car in which I was in with my parents, barely a teenager at the time.
It was a very simple kind of sighting, just a flying whitish object about ten
meters wide, looking like a reversed soup plate glued upon another, silently cruising the
valley that goes up the first steps of the Petropolis mountain range near Rio de Janeiro,
moving slowly at low altitude, a couple of hundred meters ahead of the car.
After the initial shock my family decided it had to be one of the nazi secret
weapons taken from the Germans by one of the allied powers [the year was 1949, and yes,
they were a smart and well informed kind of people] and soon forgot the whole thing.
During the following years I occasionally read about the UFO phenomenon and
became more and more convinced that all impartial research pointed to a situation where
our planet is subjected to an important alien presence.
Presently I can't do less than absolutely agree with Steven Greer and others
like him that think this situation is kept secret by a very powerful military-industrial
steering group derived from the wartime Manhattan Project, that escaped governmental
So I heartfeltedly praise the effort Dr Greer and the Disclosure Project team
are undertaking to awaken the USA Congress -- and the rest of the world -- to the great
importance of this matter, using the clever strategy of concentrating on the testimony of
old military officers and civilian officials of good standing and impeccable careers.
Up to the present time he has refrained himself and has successfully avoided
to bring up all controversial matter, including the supremely important question of what
motivates the extraterrestrial presence among us...and rightly so, because, as Greer
himself noted in one of his "position papers", the ET civilizations are likely
to have very different sociological and ethical values compared to what we are accustomed
But, even agreeing with him that we must be very careful in selecting the
words we use to communicate the truth that we can verify, that doesn't mean that we
mustn't confront difficult issues like the probable interference of ETs with human
evolution, and the so called "abductions" and "cattle mutilations"
questions -- that Greer is prone to interpret as well intentioned "clinical
examinations" and "farm animal dissections".
The inclination to see all extraterrestrial activities under a favorable
light derives from the supposition that ancient civilizations, hundreds of thousands or
millions of years older than our own must necessarily be benign, that is, morally evolved
along lines we think must universally prevail.
Besides that, our religious upbringing makes it difficult to accept the
possibility that the moral quality of our heavenly brothers (or competitors, or masters,
or a combination of these) could be left to chance alone, by a benign, endowing God,
preoccupied with us human beings, as his preferred children -- a strong
The problem is that nature isn't showing any evidence that there could be
such a thing as preferred children. Despite Einstein, God seems to be playing dice all the
So we must fend for ourselves and accept the fact that we are not living in a
well-guarded planet, divinely protected against inimical alien interference. And
consequently we have to be attentive to all bad signs, because, if reality is like that,
we are exposed to all imaginable dangers inherent to the wild west quality of our cosmic
frontier, a promising, beautiful, but savage place, with no fences, sheriffs, circuit
judges nor courts of appeal.
That is why we must oblige ourselves to examine attentively all data we have
about the sensitive issues, including "cattle mutilations" and the scarcer --
but, as you are going to see in the first of the following essays -- impossible to deny
cases of "human mutilation".
THE REALITY OF ET RELATED
[Reason enough to be very cautious
about the trustful approach to ETs]
mutilation" syndrome is an UFO related phenomenon characterized by the finding of
dead mutilated farm animals in isolated areas with no physical traces of the responsible
for the deaths, i.e., no foot prints, no crushed grass, no tracks, no snow prints in
[It is completely impossible to me to use the euphemism "farm cattle
dissections" proposed by Dr. Steven Greer, and I doubt he would extend the concept of
benign ET intervention up to the inclusion of "human dissections"].
It has been found that the body is totally drained of blood and there are no
trace of blood anywhere on the ground. Incisions of different types are found on the
bodies, all so clear-cut that they would have to be done with advanced technology, that
didn't exist when the mutilations started, before 1970.
Various body parts are found to be missing, normally, sensory organs (eyes
and internal ears), tongue, the glands of the throat, mammary glands, sexual parts, navel,
lower intestine, excised in such ways that suggest the use of laser like instruments and
round sucking cups unknown to medicine.
From 1960 onward, rumors began to be heard about findings of similarly
mutilated human corpses, horror stories rapidly dismissed as misinformation or
This matter, generally considered to be of very bad taste, surfaced again in
1988 when the Skywatch International open list published a short text purported to be
based on a secret report relating the death of an Air Force Sgt (E-6) by the name Jonathan P. Louette, abducted at the White
Sands missile test range in March of 1976.
According to the report, his nude body was found three days later in the
middle of the desert, horribly mutilated: the tongue had been removed from the lower part
of the jaw; the eyes, removed; the genitalia and the anus, all the way to the colon,
excised, "as through a plug". The autopsy report confirmed that the body had
been completely drained of blood.
The following year Donald Ecker, then responsible for the Idaho MUFON
Directory investigated the story of the finding of a mutilated body in a remote place near
Bliss area, Idaho, with extensive mutilations in the face, and complete excision of the
sexual parts and other abdominal organs.
During the investigation Ecker found there was a generalized and near
absolute predisposition to repress the whole story, including among ufologists, deeply
divided between those who see the extraterrestrials as harbingers of the New Age and those
who think they are nothing less than precursors demons of the Apocalypse.
A few years later there was the case of a similarly mutilated body, occurred
in 1994, in New Zealand, as reported by Karen
Lyster in http://www.reocities.com/CapitolHill/Congress/2301/humanmute.html
where Karen has been telling for a couple of years without repercussions another
disgusting story of a cored out rectum, bloodless removal of sexual organs, and a vivid
description of the removal from the chest of very clean cookie cutter pieces of flesh,
around 2 inches in diameter, as they could be evaluated from the photos (that she wasn't
allowed to keep) shown to her by a distressed Physician that wanted to know her opinion
about how similar the wounds were to the cattle mutilations she had studied before.
The force of the taboo like willingness to deny the human mutilations is so
strong that even the extremely well researched and conclusive investigation made in 1992
by Encarnacion Zapata Garcia about the so
called Guarapiranga Dam case, in Brazil, seems like it never happened at all.
The story of this research was made public at the Internet a few years ago by
G. Cope Shellhorn, and soon was lost in
What makes the
Guarapiranga case absolutely special is that, notwithstanding the fact that the body was
discovered, like the above mentioned, at an isolated place, it was found at an small
island inside a reservoir inside S. Paulo city, one of the most modern, advanced, well
developed cities of the world, so a very short time after the body was found it was
examined by the proper detachment of the police department, photographed from many angles
and positions -- before and after removal -- and later autopsied by forensic experts whose
report -- shown here and partially translated ahead -- is a testimony to their bafflement
by the strangeness and inexplicability of the wounds inflicted upon the "murder
victim" they had been called to examine.
As a matter of fact, the
same peculiar type of incisions and excisions characteristic to cattle mutilation cases
were found all over the body: eyes and ears removed leaving plug like holes, lips and
flesh excised around the mandibles, emptied mouth cavity, removal of sexual and intestinal
OFFICIAL AUTOPSY REPORT
From the Legal Medicine Institute,
Scientific Police Department,
S.Paulo State Public Security Secretary, S.Paulo, Brazil
[A few items were blacked out to difficult the identification of the
victim, as asked by the family, but it has been possible to verify the number of the
criminal occurrence bulletin (n. 5423/88, at the 25th police station), as well as the
number of the necrological report (n. 645/88 dated October, 03, 1988) and the name of the
forensic medicine experts that signed it: Dr Jorge Pereira de Oliveira and Dr Claudio
The autopsy report states:
"EXTERNAL EXAMINATION: We observed: 1) Cut off of
the external ear by a slanting incision, with hollowing of soft parts; 2) removal of
internal ear with indications of vital reaction; 3) enucleation of
right and left ocular globes, with signs of blood inside the cavities"
Summing up the removal or hollowing of other parts:
"16) We observed the removal of the right and left
orbital areas, emptying of the mouth cavity, pharynx, oropharynx, neck, right and left
armpit area, abdomen, pelvic cavity, right and left groin area".
The reference to "vital
reaction" means that the wound was inflicted upon a live body, not over
a dead one. This information is repeated in other parts of the report, for example:
"8) The left and the right armpit areas exhibit a
circular discontinuity [round hole], with 4 centimeters of diameter, with regular borders
and hollowing of soft parts, with signs of vital reaction".
"21) Absence of organs In the pelvis and abdominal
cavity due to the removal of all viscera, with signs of tearing and vital
The most evident indication of vital reaction are the blue-black haematomas
(formed by the effusion of blood under the skin) that can be clearly seen as a mask over
the eyes, around the ears, under the chin, as a rectangle around the hole near the right
... and around similar
holes with regular borders clearly seen in the navel and at the thigh, near the left groin
area, that appears to have been produced by a "cookie cutter" type of
An extensive haematoma can
also be observed throughout the whole length of the very bruised, stretched penis, that
wasn't excised like the scrotum, but showed an enlarged urethral channel (the red tip of
which can be seen in the photo) suggesting that the prostate gland was extracted through
The official occurrence
bulletin says the body was found simply laying on the damp soil completely unbound,
without signs to have been previously chained or tied. [The piece of rope found to be tied
to the right arm during the autopsy was used later, to fasten the body to the stretcher
for removal, as shown in the next photo]. There was no signs of fighting nor any
indication of the presence of other people in the island.
The possibility that such
a horrible butchery has been inflicted upon a live victim, possibly paralyzed, brings up
to the mind the story related by
Linda Moulton Howe about a mutilated bull found in 1981, in Colorado, with dried
traces of exudation that trickled down along the muzzle from both its removed eyes, in
such a way that only could have occurred if it were standing up, meaning that whoever
excised its eyes, removed its tongue, the sexual parts and the rectum, did all that with
the animal still alive, paralyzed and standing over its own legs.
A very improbable and incredible thing, absolutely preposterous: who in this
world would be inhuman enough to do that to a paralyzed, conscious animal?
And now, we have the official register of a human person submitted to the
same kind of treatment while still alive. Would it be possible that he was conscious
during the mutilation?
The sobering answer, given by the autopsy, is a resounding yes!
"INTERNAL EXAMINATION: ...after opening the
cranial cavity using Griessinger technique we found: 17) unimpaired skullcap; 18) cerebral
In a case like that, the presence of cerebral edema without direct traumatic
origin is a strong characteristic of an agonizing death. In confirmation, the autopsy
CONCLUSION explicitly states as causa mortis (cause of the death):
"...acute haemorhage in multiple traumatisms.
There is a component of causa mortis by vagus stimulation" [implying
cardio-respiratory arrest caused by extreme pain]. "The victim
shows injuries with vital reaction characteristics, i.e., there is the component
"torture". The suggested modus operandi is: incisions in soft parts and natural
orifices using sucking devices".
PHOTOS #5 and #5a
The thoracic viscera (i.e., non abdominal organs) were in their normal place".
In spite of the fact that the vascular system was practically drained, there
was no signs of haemorrage in the body, or in the site the body was found.
One of the MD that was part of the autopsy commented the incongruity of the
fact that the victim was wearing a short (strangely free from a single drop of blood) when
was found, so whoever was responsible for the crime put on the short back into the body
after the carnage. He said that what baffled him more than anything else was how could so
much muscular mass and lymph nodes be removed through small holes (as can be clearly seen
in Photos #3 and #4, near the armpit and groin) without tearing apart the connecting
tissue adhered to the skin.
But all these are irrelevant details compared to the -- in this case --
impossible to deny reality of the mutilation itself.
We have a body that was examined by professionals that would certainly
recognize the difference between randomly inflicted wounds produced by animals, from
deliberate, artificially produced cuts, made by instruments. We have an official document
describing the autopsy. And this time the researcher was allowed to keep the photos, at
All along the autopsy report, the artificiality and surgical deliberation of
the incisions are very clearly described, for example:
"10) Elliptic, elongated incision with 3 cm x 1 cm
axis, at the left groin crease."
"14) Removal of the anal orifice with ample incision, oval shaped,
elongated, with 15 cm x 8 cm axis". Etc, etc....
So, in this case, again, there is no way out of the definitive conclusion
provided by an EITHER / OR binary type of proposition:
A bunch of absolutely inhuman, mad Brazilian ufologists developed specialized
equipment to imitate the cattle mutilation signature, and killed an innocent victim,
closely following a script destined to back the supposed White Sands mutilation of Sgt.
The horribly mutilated body of the Brazilian victim is proof enough of the
truthfulness of both Sgt. Louette's case and the New Zealand report, and many others,
meaning that we will have to face the grim reality of all these cases, the sooner the
I am reluctant to say it, but the impossibility to protect the planet against
this kind of cold blooded extraterrestrials has probably been one of the main reasons for
the endurance of the UFO / ET cover up, which, under the circumstances, seems to be a
policy very easy to justify.
