Communication between UFOs

In Gerald K. Haines “The CIA's Role in the Study of UFOs Between 1947 and 1990” (which can be found online perhaps at http://www.ufoarea.com/) has this account which some of you may be familiar with:

“The Agency was … involved with Davidson and Keyhoe in two rather famous UFO cases in the 1950s, which helped contribute to a growing sense of public distrust of CIA with regard to UFOs. One focused on what was reported to have been a tape recording of a radio signal from a flying saucer; the other on reported photographs of a flying saucer. The "radio code" incident began innocently enough in 1955, when two elderly sisters in Chicago, Mildred and Marie Maier, reported in the Journal of Space Flight their experiences with UFOs, including the recording of a radio program in which an unidentified code was reportedly heard.

 The sisters taped the program and other ham radio operators also claimed to have heard the "space message." OSI became interested and asked the Scientific Contact Branch to obtain a copy of the recording. Field officers from the Contact Division (CD), one of whom was Dewelt Walker, made contact with the Maier sisters, who were "thrilled that the government was interested," and set up a time to meet with them. In trying to secure the tape recording, the Agency officers reported that they had stumbled upon a scene from Arsenic and Old Lace. "The only thing lacking was the elderberry wine," Walker cabled Headquarters.

 The Air Force … confirmed that the recording contained only identifiable Morse code which came from a known US-licensed radio station.

… the tape and the notes made at the time had been destroyed to conserve file space.”

Although the paper and this segment within it deals with the CIA’s involvement in the UFO milieu, this little tale, of the Maier sisters brings to mind a thought…

There seems to be a death of UFO or flying saucer reports in which communication takes place between such alleged craft or between a UFO and a (possible) mothership.

Since UFOs seem to act like Earthian reconnaissance aircraft, and are usually reported by ufologists as having intelligent control; that is, UFOs act like Earth-craft in many ways, one would expect that there must be or should be a means of communication between them.

Did the Maier sisters actually pick up such communication, or was their dalliance with the topic a total silly hoax or misplaced adventure, as seems to be the conclusion of UFO buffs (and the CIA/Air Force, or so they said)?

Whether the Maier tale is authentic or not is not my point here, but rather whether there is any evidence or anecdotal accounts of anyone (the military included) picking up what might have been signals or communication of some kind from UFOs.

I find no UFO stories indicating such.

And while we all agree, I think, that we may not be able to fathom an alleged extraterrestrial mind, one would think that any vehicle coming here from outer space, time, or another dimension would have some kind of intercommunication between itself and its command operation, home planet, or other craft from its civilization also here, unless, as I intuit in my “UFOs are piloted by plants” thesis, the things inside communicate telepathically, and can do so over long ranges, as Quantum Mechanics allows.

Your thoughts?



  • Rich:

    You are right that there seem to be no verified reports of radio frequency communications to, from, or between UFOs.

    There seem to be a number of possibilities. In order of increasing strangeness, they might be: 1) highly directional laser or maser beams (currently used for semi-secure space mission data links); 2) spread-spectrum, pseudo-random noise data links (appears as background noise); 3) quantum entangled photons; 4) space-time wormholes; 5) telepathy. For option #5, there is no need to invoke plants; animals can do it quite nicely, as well.

  • Thanks, Larry...

    I have a fixation on plants; it's that damn The Thing (from another world) movie -- the 1951 version.

  • An intelligent carrot. The mind boggles.

    If you believe Freeman Dyson, we are (approximately, at least) the last generation of wild, freely evolved humans. (I guess the argument applies to non-human organisms, as well.)

    Just within the space of my lifetime we have gone from discovering RNA and DNA as the basic building blocks of genetic material to the point of first sequencing, and then synthetically manufacturing the entire genome of simple species. This includes the ability to transplant genes across species (from plant to animal and vice versa).

    A species only moderately further advanced than we are will likely wear whatever kind of designer bodies it wants to and there will be no strong distinction between plant and animal.

  • And I find that fascinating, Larry.

  • I doubt there is any. The one variation I recall were reports off the California and South American coasts by witnesses who said the multiple light sources appeared to be communicating with each other with light signalling in a manner similar to call and response between Naval vessels. It is just as likely it was simply wavelength shifting. Who knows?
