Robots, Manipulating Souls and Time Travelers: One of the Strangest Claims in Ufology

In July 1997, one of the most controversial UFO-themed books was published. Its title: The Day after Roswell. Its author, Philip J. Corso. Its ghost-writer: Bill Birnes of the television show, UFO Hunters. Simon & Schuster, the publisher of the book provided the following blurb for the book: “A breathtaking exposé that reads like a thriller, The Day After Roswell is a stunning depiction of just what happened in Roswell, New Mexico all those years ago and how the effects of this mysterious unidentified aircraft crash are still relevant today. Former member of President Eisenhower’s National Security Council and the Foreign Technology Desk in the United States Army, Colonel Philip J. Corso was assigned to work at a strange crash site in Roswell in 1947. He had no idea that his work there would change his life and the course of history forever. Only in his fascinating memoir can you discover how he helped removed alien artifacts from the site and used them to help improve much of the technology the Army uses today, such as circuit chips, fiber optics, and more. Laying bare the United States government’s shocking role in the Roswell incident—what was found, the cover-up, and more - The Day After Roswell is an extraordinary memoir that not only forces us to reconsider the past, but also our role in the universe.”

Not only that, Corso claimed that he saw the bodies of the dwarfish, black-eyed things from the Roswell crash and maintained they were not aliens, per se, but biological robots created by an alien race that we, the Human Race, we have never yet seen. Not only that: but that that same race of robots were time travelers. Some of this data, specifically as it related to that robotic side, was similar to that of a man named Nigel Kerner. He was the author of The Song of the Greys and Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls – the “Greys” being a popular term in UFO research for “aliens.” As for the blurb for Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls, it reads as follows: “In 1997 Nigel Kerner first introduced the notion of aliens known as Greys coming to Earth, explaining that Greys are sophisticated biological robots created by an extraterrestrial civilization they have long since outlived. In this new book Kerner reveals that the Greys are seeking to master death by obtaining something humans possess that they do not: souls. Through the manipulation of human DNA, these aliens hope to create their own souls and, thereby, escape the entropic grip of the material universe in favor of the timeless realm of spirit. 

“Kerner explains that genetic manipulation by the Greys has occurred since biblical times and has led to numerous negative qualities that plague humanity, such as violence, greed, and maliciousness. Kerner shows that Jesus, who represented an uncorrupted genetic line, warned his disciples about the threat posed by these alien interlopers, while Hitler, a pure product of this alien intelligence, waged genocide in an attempt to rid Earth of all those untouched by this genetic tampering. “Despite the powerful grip the Greys have on humanity, Kerner says that all hope is not lost. Greys exist wholly in the material world, so if we follow the spiritual laws of reincarnation and karma, aiming for enlightenment and rising above the material--a state the Greys are unable to reach--we can free ourselves from their grasp.” This was expanded on by Kerner’s associate, Danielle Silverman: “Are these alien visitors a demonic deception created by occultists piercing a hole into the demonic world or are they the actual tangible result of a technology superior to ours? Are they Golems created by esoteric means or are they technologically created entities? I have to say the most probable for me is the technological scenario. As far as I can see even our own technology is not far from creating the kinds of artificial intelligence and bio-technology necessary to make something like the Greys."

We're also told by Kerner that the "...view is that the dangers lie in the creation of artificial intelligence not in dabbling in the occult. As I’m sure you would have seen yourself the whole thing could so easily be the reverse of what the Collins Elite claim, i.e. the demons, goblins etc of the past could have been the Greys of today but reported as metaphysical creations because those who witnessed them had no references against which to describe the technological features of that which they saw. In other words our current technology would be seen as magic by the people of the past. “If you recall, Nigel Kerner’s first book The Song Of The Greys posed the very interesting idea that we had something far more precious about us as natural living beings that would interest a super intelligent alien cartel just a little more than our ability to mine for precious metals. Nigel went on to delineate a fascinating concept, explaining that a ‘soul’ might be a derivational information field that comes out of a natural cadence that came into the Universe with the big bang. This field holds the power to maintain information in what he called a morphogenetic electro-spatial field with an eternal scope of existence in whatever form circumstance allows. The soul is thus an ancestrally contiguous and coherent mechanism for holding information. Nigel argued that if the Greys are an artificially created and manufactured roboidal form then they would find our facility for ‘soul’ an analogue of their own creators. This would be an analogue that they would want to try to combine with their own natures themselves."

“The ‘Greys’ he argued were synthetic biological programmed artificially intelligent machine entities sent out as super intelligent robots far more advanced than those we now ourselves send out to explore the Universe. They are however subject to wear and tear as indeed are all atomically derived entities through the second law of thermodynamics which drives them into greater and greater states of decay with time. A non-atomic property however, such as ‘soul’, is immune to the second law. Thus this property was their ultimate goal, their ‘holy grail’ so to speak. It was a property that they could never know or understand in its own terms as purely atomic artificial creations. Their only perception of it was the effect it has on atoms, the difference in other words between a naturally living entity and their artificial state.
Ironically what these artificially intelligent entities are seeking is eternal survivability.

The Greys and any physical life that they might reconstitute from the DNA codes they carry on behalf of their creators, cannot access the state beyond death. They have no ‘soul’ they cannot be born. They are trying to use us as a bridge into ‘soul’ writing their programs into us through genetic engineering and implantation so that through us they can tap into an eternal existence. Paradoxically they are trying to achieve the impossible but as purely physical creations without a ‘soul’ they cannot know this. “It is Nigel’s suggestion that the fastest highways to travel through the universe lie in what he calls the ‘fields of death’ which he identifies as the zero-point field in the space between atoms. Thus when we die we can reincarnate at other planetary locations. The vast distances involved in physical space travel and the speed of light beating technology that this involves with enormous G-forces are only survival by artificial roboidal bodies fortified by mercury and other heavy metals. Thus the Greys are also searching out our ability to transcend and conquer the limits of space and time when we die.

(Nick Redfern) Roswell: created creatures?

We're told: “I hope this is not too long winded Nick but after reading your book and the fascinating research you have done the alternative to fundamentalist Christianity was blazing in my mind and I wanted to share it with you. As you know Nigel does not feel that any religion corners the market on the truth and points to the wisdom of all the great religious teachers. He does, however, identify the Shroud of Turin and the processes involved in forming this unique and remarkable image as evidence of the power of soul that the Greys are seeking out in its ultimate form. Thus he suggests it was they who met Jesus in the desert and took him up to see ‘all the cities of the world’ – a viewpoint only possible from a space-ship!” There’s another aspect to the Corso controversy. As Corso wriote, "[The U.S. and U.S.S.R.] both knew who the real targets of SDI were... When we deployed our advanced particle-beam weapon and tested it in orbit for all to see, the EBEs knew and we knew that they knew that we had our defense of the planet in place.”

The U.S. Department of State provides us with a detailed background on SDI/Star Wars: "On March 23, 1983 in a televised address to the nation, U.S. President Ronald Reagan announced his intention to embark upon groundbreaking research into a national defense system that could make nuclear weapons obsolete. The research took a number of forms which collectively were called the Strategic Defense Initiative, or SDI. The heart of the SDI program was a plan to develop a space-based missile defense program that could protect the country from a large-scale nuclear attack. The proposal involved many layers of technology that would enable the United States to identify and destroy automatically a large number of incoming ballistic missiles as they were launched, as they flew, and as they approached their targets. The idea was dependent on futuristic technology, including space-based laser systems that had not yet been developed, although the idea had been portrayed as real in science fiction. As a result, critics of the proposal nicknamed SDI "Star Wars" after the movie of the same name. There were several reasons why the Reagan Administration was interested in pursuing the technology in the early 1980s. One was to silence domestic critics concerned about the level of defense spending.

"Reagan described the SDI system as a way to eliminate the threat of nuclear attack; once the system was developed, its existence would benefit everyone. In this way, it could also be portrayed as a peace initiative that warranted the sacrifice of funds from other programs. Privately, Reagan was quite adamant that the goal of U.S. defense research should be to eliminate the need for nuclear weapons, which he thought were fundamentally immoral. In terms of the Cold War conflict with the Soviets, a successful defense system would destroy the Soviet ability to make a first strike, which in turn would undermine the USSR's ability to pose a threat to the United States at all. So success in this area, supporters of SDI argued, could potentially also bring an end to the Cold War. 

"Criticism of the SDI initiative was widespread, however, and it took several forms beyond general skepticism about the feasibility of the technology. First, research and development for such a complicated project inevitably came with a very high price tag. Many critics of SDI wondered why the Reagan Administration was willing to spend so much money on a defense system that might never work, and expressed alarm that the funding for SDI came at the cost of social programs like education and health care. Moreover, there was no way to test such a system without exposing the world to a very dangerous attack. Second, the very idea of guarding against nuclear attack struck at the heart of the theory of deterrence. If one nuclear power no longer had to fear nuclear attack, then there would be no fear of retaliation to stop it from making the first strike against another.

"In fact, if the Soviet Union thought that the United States was on the verge of deploying a comprehensive defense system, some argued, it might feel forced to attack before the United States could complete the system; this possibility meant that developing the system could actually contribute to U.S. insecurity, not the other way around. Third, critics both in the United States and around the world called the SDI initiative a clear violation of the 1972 Antiballistic Missile Treaty. That treaty had committed the United States and the Soviet Union to refrain from developing missile defense systems in order to prevent a new and costly arms race. The Strategic Defense Initiative appeared to be a missile defense system by another name. 

"The Soviet Union expressed its concerns about SDI almost as soon as it learned of it, and the prospect of the United States developing the defense system thus became a hindrance in the pursuit of future arms negotiations between the two powers. Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev linked his demands that the United States drop SDI to the negotiations for the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF Treaty) and the Strategic Arms Reductions Talks (START). Over the course of the 1980s, Reagan's refusal to give up SDI became the sticking point that prevented the two countries from reaching a deal on other arms control measures, and it was only when the two sides agreed to delink defense and intermediate-range forces discussions that they managed to sign the INF Treaty. START was completed after Reagan left office, and government commitment to the SDI project waned."

Souls, aliens and robots? Was Corso telling the truth? Who knows?
