In contemplating recent comments by Art Bell and Hoagland concerning
focus pointing from all directions of the media to Phoenix, Arizona, I
wondered what possible significance this singular city may have to alien
agendas and/or agendas of the Military-industrial complex.
It seems that we have heard that word often in UFOlogy texts. As I began
to review my mental files of the various places I've read about this mythical
bird, it seemed like somewhat more than just a coincidence that this one
city should now be where the media and others(?) wish us to turn our
What possible significance could this one American city have to the
human race? If one were to pick one spot on the entire globe for some
type of "demonstration" or "beginning", which one would YOU pick?
There are many places one may pick for various agendas. Could we have
been given a few "hints" or "clues" as to where to look?
My first thoughts recalled various statements made by William Bramley in
his book, The Gods Of Eden (1990). His references to the legend of the
Phoenix in American history was the first time I'd ever heard of this legend.
"The phoenix was adopted by the Founding Fathers for use
on the reverse of the first official seal of the United States
after a design proposed by Charles Thompson, Secretary of
the Continental Congress. The first die of the U.S. seal
depicts a long-necked tufted bird: the phoenix. The phoenix
holds in its mouth a banner with the words "E. Pluribus
Unum" ("Out of many, one"). Above the bird's head are
thirteen stars breaking through a cloud. In one talon the
phoenix holds a cluster of arrows; in the other, an olive
branch. Some people mistook the bird for a wild turkey
because of the long neck; however, the phoenix is also long
of neck and all other features of the bird clearly indicate that
it is a phoenix. The die was retired in 1841 and the phoenix
was replaced by the bald eagle - America's national bird."
Many major human events have involved specific symbols, usually pictures
rather than just words. The phoenix has also been interpreted to represent
a form of apocalypse. Apocalyptic themes are a constant feature in human
history. What symbol would you chose to represent "the end times"?
According to Bramley... .
"The question is: who implanted apocalyptic beliefs on
Earth? A Supreme Being is usually cited-but is a Supreme
Being truly the source? A careful look at history reveals that
apocalyptic teachings first arose out of Custodial activity and
from sources within the corrupted Brotherhood network. End
of the World doctrines were disseminated by early
Brotherhood missionaries and conquerors hand-in-hand with
monotheism. It is therefore not surprising to learn that Final
Battle doctrines have some roots in a famous Brotherhood
symbol discovered on ancient Egyptian relics. That symbol
was the mythical bird known as the PHOENIX. (Emphasis
The phoenix is a fictional bird which is said to live five
hundred to six hundred years before burning itself to death in
a nest of herbs. Out of the ashes emerges a small worm
which grows back into the phoenix. The phoenix repeats this
life-death-rebirth cycle over and over again, endlessly. The
phoenix legend is an allegory (a story with an under- lying
meaning), or symbol, designed to impart a deeper truth.
Precisely what that truth is has been lost, and so we find
people interpreting the phoenix legend in a variety of ways.
For example, many people see the phoenix as a symbol of
resurrection or spiritual survival after death: a soul is born
into a body, the body flowers, the body undergoes the fiery
rigors of life and death, and the soul remains intact to rise
and build again. Others see the phoenix as a symbol of the
birth-growth-decay cycle upon which the physical elements
of the universe seem to operate, behind which there lies an
indestructible spiritual reality.
Regrettably, the phoenix legend, like so many other mystical
allegories of the Egyptian Brotherhood, distorted important
truths. The legend came to convey the false idea that there
exists some kind of unalterable "law" or "plan" which
mandates that spiritual existence must consist of an
arduous phoenix-like process of growing, dying by "fire,"
emerging out of the ashes, growing again, dying again, and
so on forever. While this process does seem to regulate life
on Earth, it is neither natural, inevitable nor healthy.
Many "End of the World" teachings take the philosophy
expressed in the phoenix myth and apply it to the entire
human race. When they do so, they often express the notion
that human societies must endure continuous "ordeals by
fire" as part of God's great plan. Most apocalypses then veer
from standard phoenix allegory by proclaiming that this
process will culminate in a great "Final Battle" followed by a
utopia. These beliefs encourage people to tolerate, and even
welcome, a world of unremitting physical hardship, conflict,
and death: the kind of world that ancient writings say
Custodians wished their work race to live in. Judgment Day
prophesies even spur some people into working to bring
about a "final battle" because those believers think that it will
mean the dawn of a utopia."
Many abductees have related stories of seeing emblems that they
assumed depicted eagles either on their abductors' clothing, in symbols
on walls or in other places during their abductions. Could these symbols
have represented the phoenix rather than the eagle, much like those who
thought the first American symbol was a turkey? How many countries,
past and present, use the eagle in their national seals and other designs of
national allegiance? Maybe the eagle evolved from the phoenix, both
physically and symbolically?
In his book, Bramley draws this connection between UFOs and the
"UFO occupants still come right out today and imply that
they are God. One abduction episode in which this occurred
involved a woman named Betty Ann Andreasson, whose
well-documented and exhaustively-researched experience
was the subject of an intriguing book entitled The Andreas-
son Affair, by Raymond Fowler.
Mrs. Andreasson's abduction occurred on January 25, 1967.
Later, while under hypnosis, Mrs. Andreasson recalled that
she had been kidnapped out of her home, was taken aboard
an apparent alien aircraft and flown to an unknown location
where she was led through what seemed to be a number of
unusual red and green underground passages within some
sort of city. Mrs. Andreasson then had an experience which
makes her story unbelievable to many people; but to us, it is
the experience which may give her story the most credence.
According to Mrs. Andreasson, her abductors took her to a
special room. There she underwent what her investigators
described as "the most painful and emotional segment of her
total experience." In the room, Mrs. Andreasson saw a large
bird about fifteen feet in height. The bird resembled an eagle,
but it had a longer neck. It was, in fact, a replica of a
PHOENIX, and it had the illusion of being alive. As Mrs.
Andreasson stood and watched it, the phoenix began to
undergo a transformation. Mrs. Andreasson felt an intense
heat so powerful that she cried out in pain during her
hypnosis session while recounting the incident. The strange
alien room abruptly cooled off. Where the "Great Bird" had
stood there now burned a small fire. The fire died down to a
pile of gray ash with a few red embers. As the pile continued
to cool, Betty saw something in the ashes: "Now, looks like
a worm " she recalled under hypnosis, "a big fat worm. It just
looks like a big fat worm-a big gray worm just lying there."
What Mrs. Andreasson had witnessed was a re-enactment of the legend of
the phoenix, clearly staged for her benefit. The phoenix, as we recall, is a
Brotherhood symbol which has been used to promote apocalypticism and
justify endless human suffering. Although Mrs. Andreasson's "vision" of the
phoenix constituted only a small portion of her total abduction experience,
the investigators concluded:
....it is only too obvious that the aliens had brought Betty to
the bird as the focal point of her whole experience; it'seemed
to be the purpose for her travel through the red and green
Mrs. Andreasson testified under hypnosis that after being implanted with
this mystical vision, the following conversation ensued between her and
"They called my name, and repeated it again in a louder
voice. I said, "No, I don't understand what this is all
about, why I'm even here." And they-whatever it was-said
that "I have chosen you." "For what have you chosen
me?" Betty asked. "I have chosen you to show the
world." "Are you God?" Betty asked, "Are you the Lord
God?" "I shall show you as your time goes by."
At the time of her abduction, Mrs. Andreasson was already a Christian. As
a result of her experience, she began to include UFOs in her own Christian
apocalyptic belief system. Researcher Raymond Fowler probed those
RAYMOND FOWLER: "Have they [UFOs] anything to do with
what we call the second coming of Christ?"
BETTY: "They definitely do."
RAYMOND FOWLER:" When is this going to occur?"
BETTY: "It is not for them to tell you."
RAYMOND FOWLER:" Do they know? "
BETTY: "They know the Master is getting ready, and very close."
If real, Betty Andreasson's experience was a remark- able one. It would
indicate that she was but one in a very long line of reluctant prophets
forcibly implanted with an apocalyptic religious message by members of
the Custodial society. Like the "Ezekiels" who preceded her in history,
Betty Andreasson's testimony suggests that she suffered considerable
mental tampering at the hands of her abductors. This tampering may
account for some of the unusual perceptual phenomena she experienced
during her abduction episode. Unlike past "Ezekiels," however, Mrs.
Andreasson's vision will probably not be added to the Bible nor will it
cause her to rally an army and embark on a campaign of religious
conquest. Her courageous testimony will simply offer the world additional
evidence that the 20th century has not seen a change in the methods by
which a Custodial race appears to maintain a hold on the human race.
Does Mrs. Andreasson's experience mean that human society will be
required to undergo yet another "End of the World" episode? The political,
social, and economic structure of the world certainly makes it possible.
The Brotherhood network is alive and active, as are the many institutions it
created. They may well bring to our world yet another senseless "Final
When all the "pieces" and "players" are in place, checkmate. I agree
with Art Bell that all this media blitz focusing around Phoenix, AZ. seems
too well planned and executed to be mere coincidence. If by plan, when
did it actually begin and how was this orchestrated?
Perhaps it began before there was a "United States". Perhaps it began in
ancient history. Perhaps it began in November....? And perhaps we have
all been unwitting participants.
