The Alleged Vilas-Boas Symbol

A few weeks ago, I noted the symbol that Antônio Vilas-Boas, the Brazilian farmer, who was purportedly kidnapped in 1957, and examined, by extraterrestrials, said he saw on the wall of the craft to which he was taken by alien beings.

Here’s the symbol that Boas said he saw aboard the craft:
Bosco Nedelcovic an A,I,D./CIA operative, told me that the Vilas-Boas “kidnapping” was a military psychology operation (psy-op) he was privy to, the details of which you may find in Nick Redfern’s Contactees book.

Whether or not Nedelcovic was prevaricating is open to question, but the alleged symbol comes from Vilas-Boas himself.

A comparison of the Vilas-Boas symbol with common mathematical symbols shows a similarity that suggests either Vilas-Boas’ kidnappers were aliens [ETs] using universal (as in the cosmos) math symbols, or military people incorporating math symbols on their craft (said to be a helicopter by Nedelcovic), or an attempt at creating a faux alien symbol to supplement a confabulation by farmer Vilas-Boas.

Math Symbols and the Vilas-Boas “alien” markings, side-by-side:
The Vilas-Boas tale has intrigued UFO buffs for a long time. I don’t think it was a hoax concocted by Antônio.

Something rings true in his reported account, but not necessarily an alien abduction.

Here’s Wikipedia’s take on the Vilas-Boas incident:



  • I find it absolutely unbelievable that anyone abducted and made to engage in interspecies copulation would be able to memorize these symbols. There are thousands of people who can't even interpret a stop sign at an intersection when under pressure, resulting in carnage & death. Good lord, I can't even remember a grocery shopping list in excess of three items.

  • Was this alleged symbol remembered spontaneously or only under hypnosis? And how long after the alleged event did all this remembering occur? Did Vilas-Boas ever recant any of this abduction story?

  • The Time/Life book from which I culled the symbol merely states that Villas-Boas [sic] recalled the symbol, nothing more.

    How long after or under hypnosis not told.

    The Wikipedia link I provided indicates that Vilas-Boas. for the rest of his life, maintained the event was authentic and not a hoax.

    A reader here, Patricio Abusleme, may have the answers to your queries, Dominick.

  • Our pal. Martin Kottmeyer, provided the following to enlighten me and Dominick., and I thank him for the information:

    "You were asked by Dominick today

    "Was this alleged symbol remembered spontaneously or only under hypnosis? And how long after the alleged event did all this remembering occur? Did Vilas-Boas ever recant any of this abduction story?


    "The symbols were set down in the very first letters AVB composed about the case and sent to Joao Martin in November 1957. (FSR 12, #6, November 1966, p. 16) No hypnosis was employed at any point. No time loss was ever asserted that required such a procedure. AVB stated in his deposition, “I tried to memorize their shapes, and that was what I sketched down in the letter that I sent to Senhor Joao Martins.” AVB never recanted.

    "The symbols are first presented in this part of the article:

    "The context in AVB's deposition appears here:

  • Thanks Rich and Martin for that information. What, pray tell, were the symbols on or attached to? Still believe that it is a stretch (I know, aliens are an even bigger stretch) that this entire episode was a military/intelligence operation. Let's just say that I maintain a healthy skepticism that this could have been acomplished so expertly back then (and to what end?).

  • Dominick:

    We (me and my guys) did a rather thorough run-down of the details about the operation that Nedelcovic outlined , specific technologies used et cetera.

    I had our full documentation and research online, but it was linked to our UFO files at Homestead, and when we cancelled that place as our web-site locale last year, the stuff was no longer available.

    I thought it was at one of our many UFO blogs but haven't been able to find it.

    I have the phone call, documentation, and our findings still.

    I can put all of it online if necessary, and may do so upcoming, if there is a general interest.

  • Martin Kottmeyer provides this:

    "Dominick asked:
    “What, pray tell, were the symbols on or attached to?”

    The location was at the top of a pair of doors that swung inwards like saloon entrances inside the craft that led into a smaller room where blood was first taken from AVB’s cheek, he was gassed with a gray smoke, and then was introduced to the woman. Technically speaking, the inscriptions may not have been attached to anything. To quote (op. cit.), “on the top part of it, it bore a sort of luminous inscription – or something similar – traced out in red symbols which, owing to an effect of the light, seemed to stand out about two inches in front of the metal of the door.” One may speculate that it was indicating the function of the room or noting possible hazards the crew should be aware of upon entering, the equivalent of saying ‘bio-hazard area’ or only certain people may enter."
