Anecdotal accounts go on to suggest Hynekian M&M-Tech of this type also comes in a portable form typically resembling a small, black box, though its size tends to vary in accounts. The earliest reference may be one made by Major Jesse Marcel who spoke of the Roswell wreckage in an interview:
“Progress with the process.
Mine the souls from their casts,
pour form and reshape.”
— Mudvayne, “Mercy, Severity.”
First, a hypothesis once put forward by J. Allen Hynek:
“I hold it entirely possible that a technology exists which encompasses both the physical and the psychic, the material and the mental. There are stars that are millions of years older than the sun. There may be a civilization that is millions of years more advanced than man’s. We have gone from Kitty Hawk to the moon in some seventy years, but it’s possible that a million-year-old civilization may know something that we don’t … I hypothesize an ‘M&M’ technology encompassing the mental and material realms. The psychic realms, so mysterious to us today, may be an ordinary part of an advanced technology.”
“One of the other fellows, Cavitt, I think, found a black, metallic-looking box several inches square. As there was no apparent way to open this, and since it didn’t appear to be an instrument package of any sort, we threw it in with the rest of the stuff. I don’t know what eventually happened to the box, but it went along with the rest of the material we eventually took to Fort Worth.”
The black box is found to be associated with OBEs in an experience recounted in Whitley Strieber’s book Transformation. After waking up around a half passed four in the morning in his infamous cabin, Strieber decided to try using some of Robert Monroe’s methods for achieving out-of-body experiences.
He reports he met with apparent success. After seeing a strange image of a Gray’s hand pointing one of its four, long fingers towards a two-foot box resting on a gray-colored floor, he experienced what he described as a wave of sexual feeling, after which he found himself floating above his body as a “roughly spherical field”. He moved about in his non-physical state, passing through solid objects, and saw two curious things. The first was his cat, which was not with him in the cabin, but in New York City; the other was the face of a Gray being looking in from one of the windows.
Another OBE involves a box-like device that sounds strikingly similar to the one described in Strieber’s experience. While in her trailer, lying on the couch and reading in July of 1986, Betty Andreasson reported having heard a peculiar whirring sound and then found a Gray standing beside the couch. She reported that “the being had put a small box or something on the couch”, after which she found herself standing upright, looking at herself, laying down on the couch. She then moved towards the Gray, then moved towards herself, and was frightened to find that her hand went right through her body.
This portable black box device evidently has bonus features as well, doubling as a containment unit for consciousness-transference as graphically exemplified in Karla Turner’s book “Masquerade of Angels.” There she details a narrative from Barbara Batholic’s hypnosis session with psychic Ted Rice during which he relived an experience he had when he was eight years old.
He was brought to a room and placed against a metal plate that stood at the room’s center by two gray escorts, with a red-haired woman entering the room shortly thereafter. The grays stripped him down and the woman then fiddled with some pulsating buttons and switches, causing the plate to change colors. Judging from the monitors, the machine seemed to be scanning his body organs.
The plate Teddy had his back against suddenly tilting back until it was horizontal; he was now lying on his back on a table. Lifting up his head, he saw the grays approach him. They put a headphone-like device on his ears that delivered painful noise and forced him to drink a glass of luminous green fluid which gave him excruciating body sensations, ultimately causing him to vomit.
Suddenly he appeared to be outside of his body, observing it on the table from a few feet away. A formless cloud rose from his body, coalescing into an image of himself, attached by a tendril to the green vomit on his face.
“The woman went to the counter for a black, rectangular box, which she carried back over to the table where Teddy’s body lay,” Turner writes. “With a single motion, she turned his body over and placed the black box on the shoulder area. Wires were then attached to the box, and the woman somehow activated it. The little spirit image was slowly sucked into the box, which the woman then removed and replaced on the counter.”
Shortly after she surgically severed the head with a laser contraption, he blacked out. When he came to, he found himself in a large room with rows of short tubs containing chunks of meat floating in a dark red fluid. An opening on the side of one tubs pooped out a red sort of bubble and a gray retrieved it, washed it off in a nearby sink and they then faced him, presenting him with what appeared to be a human infant.
The gray then placed the baby inside of a wall cabinet and closed the door as a fellow gray activated controls. Within a few minutes a door opened and presented a naked duplicate of his mutilated body on a tray. After the grays brought the body to the table, the woman placed the black box on its chest. Though he could not see what was being done, he saw the body convulsing, then breathing.
The box was now removed by the woman as the grays inserted needles in the back of the top of the head, the chest, and at the bottom of each foot. They put drops in his sandpaper eyes and placed the headphones back over his ears.
Other stories involve such consciousness-transference, but without the portable box devices and without having to make a clone from scratch. In Taken, another book by Karla Turner, she describes a similar scenario as she recounts an abduction experience of a woman she calls “Pat”, who recalled being in a large, softly-lit room in the presence of a Gray and a human male. In the room she saw human forms within “sarcophagus-like boxes”, all of whom were covered in some sort of white mist, which sustained them in a state of hibernation. In one of these boxes she caught glimpse of a woman’s body, which she was convinced was her “other body,” as in a previous experience she had been told by the creatures that “they were making a ‘new me.'”
Not only Turner receives such cases, unfortunately. In Linda Moulton Howe’s abduction research, she also came across accounts of rooms with clear, cylindrical tubes containing bodies in a state of hibernation. During a 1978 abduction on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Wanna Lawson was led into a room lined with 2-foot-wide, eight-foot high transparent tubes within which she saw human and alien bodies. While she does not know how it was done, her consciousness was transferred into a “tall, thin, dark-haired female” housed in one of the tubes.
Another case investigated by Howe deals with the 1963 abduction in Porterville, California of the then-17-year-old Linda Porter, who was taken by a Gray “scientist” to a room with three tall, clear tubes at the center each housing a swirling, purple gas as well as a hibernating body, apparently human.
She was shown a dying man in his mid-forties lying in a clear, rectangular container. From his solar plexus rose a five-inch-wide, two-and-a-half foot long bright form. It had an inner core of glowing white, surrounded by an iridescent yellow and a final layer of pastel orange. It then floated to one of the bodies, an “empty” male body of perhaps 25 years of age which she took to be a clone of the dead man.
The young body was now floating upright and outside of the tube, slumping a bit forward. The bright form:
“…then descended, entering the body at the top of the back of the head, all the way down to the area midway between the shoulder blades. It then merged into the body totally and settled in front of the spinal column in the area of the solar plexus. It then seemed to stretch itself out longer, a few inches up, a few inches down. The body at this point took on an ‘occupied’ look as if the person were merely asleep.”
The rectangular container holding the body, which was “now bluish in color and obviously dead”, then “filled up with a liquid to preserve the tissues until it could be dissected. The aliens wanted to find out how some kind of poison had entered the man’s body, how it had progressed through the bodily systems, and at what point the poison (contaminant) had reached a level that the body could no longer deal with the poison.”
Linda Porter also added, “After the dissection, I was told that the body would be discarded” explaining that “the aliens think our concept of funerals is barbarous. To them there is no difference between an empty beer can and an empty body.” This sounds incredibly similar to some alleged information Robert Lazar claimed to have comes across as he was working at the S-4 site within Area-51 reverse-engineering alien spacecraft. In the briefing papers, which included short overviews of other projects connected with his own, there was “a book that was almost like a history of the development of the human race” which “was written from a different point of view.”
Here is where he said that whenever “the word ‘human’ came up, it was always replaced with the word ‘containers'” and that “they were talking about the preservation of the containers, and how unique they are” and how “very difficult to find.” The implication, of course, is that by “containers” they are referring to human bodies.
Obviously the technological means of detaching the soul from the body, storing it, and re-attaching it to another body is not necessary; it would seem that we all reincarnate as a natural process. The “black box” technology only seems to be used on abductees; others, such as the man witnessed by Linda Porter, seem to have a disciplined ability to leave an old body and enter another body intentionally, rendering the box unnecessary.
Technology in such cases is still apparently used in order to clone bodies, preserve bodies, and allow bodies to be accessed by consciousness, however. Linda Porter explained that a new body can be readily made and entered; this resonates with the experience of the young Ted Rice.
When the aliens create these spare bodies and store them in reserve, however, they evidently require being placed in what she calls “activation containers”, which were the clear, cylindrical tubes that she saw in her experience. They have a light on the top, she adds, and the body must be bathed in this light for a certain amount of hours before it can be entered.
In his book, The Threat, David Jacobs describes how during the four-and-a-half day abduction of Alison Reed she was taken by a hybrid to a room where she was to meet up with her escort, who had been with her throughout the experience. The room was “large, circular, and had a vaulted ceiling” from which a yellow light streamed to the center of the room into a round sphere of light. She “heard a humming sound” and “saw approximately forty tanks filled with liquid in a horseshoe arrangement”, with each of them tilted slightly back and situated “around the circular wall.”
As she is standing there, the round, yellow light in the center of the room withdraws into the ceiling; then, seemingly at random, the tanks will tilt forward slightly so that they stand erect, at which time the liquid drains out of them with a sound she described as a “wissssshhh”. The beings then walk right through the glass tanks, walking right passed her, until her escort came up to her, surprised to see her there. When she pressed him what they were doing in the tanks, he only said, “Eating and sleeping.”
Do they put on and take off bodies at will? Might each have perhaps a wardrobe of bodies?
According to Linda Porter, she was also allegedly told by the aliens that “part of the reason they take tissue samples from abductees when they are quite young is to have this tissue in reserve in case a new body becomes necessary later on” and that the specific man she saw ‘resurrected’ in the clone “would be relocated elsewhere (maybe Australia) and would continue on with his life.”
Sometimes the transfer from one body to another is evidently not as swift as was the case with Ted Rice and the maybe-Autrailian. Take for instance Karla Turner’s book, Into the Fringe, in which she writes about hypnotist and abductee Barbara Batholic’s talk with Sandy, a family friend of the Turner’s. Sandy explained a recurring nightmare that first began when she was very young and had had a potentially lethal illness. As Turner describes it:
“Sandy is standing very close to a dull gray surface, her face only inches away. The gray thing is an enormous sphere, so huge that in comparison Sandy is only a tiny dot. Something is drawing her into the sphere, but she is fighting against the urge, for she knows that if she ever enters the sphere, she will ‘never come back.'”
Turner described watching Barbara’s eyes grow larger as she heard Sandy describe it, and then heard as Barbara confessed to seeing the same sphere when she was around five years of age. In private, when pressed by Turner, Barbara dispelled details she had not wanted to express to the already-overwhelmed Sandy. “When I was taken to the sphere,” she said, “I was told that it was ‘a repository for souls,’ where human souls are somehow recycled. If that’s the same thing Sandy saw, I guess she wouldn’t have come out of that sphere alive.”
If true, these stories seem to indicate that the aliens have the capability to guide, though technology, a reincarnation process.
They can separate consciousness from the body with invisible energy beams and mysterious black boxes. With those black boxes, they can also store that consciousness. With the sphere we merely find the logical extension of the black box device in this respect: not a mere portable container for consciousness, but a “repository of souls.” With the black box one can also enforce consciousness transference into another body. In any case, one can also evidently preserve back-up bodies in case of death — in any case, the new body is typically a same-age clone of the first.
In any case, this would appear to echo what Strieber was allegedly once told by one of the grays, namely: “We recycle souls”.
