12.1 Atman, Brahman, and evolution of consciousness

This philosophy of scientific materialism is certainly accepted by many
people today. If it is true, the ufonauts must be cosmic
super-scientists, and we might expect them to do and say things that
are incomprehensible. But we would not expect them to make
understandable statements that clearly contradict fundamental
scientific principles. Yet this is exactly what they seem to be doing.
Both in word and deed, the beings connected with UFOs seem to
consistently advocate a philosophy that radically contradicts modern
science. This philosophy can be summed up as follows: There is life
throughout the universe, and this includes vast numbers of beings that
are very similar to ourselves in form and behavior. We can call these
beings humanoids. They are conscious, and they have humanly
recognizable emotions. They also generally have highly developed
psychical abilities. These beings, like ourselves, are souls inhabiting
material bodies. As souls, they transmigrate from one physical body to
another. There is a process of cosmic evolution of consciousness,
whereby souls gradually progress in spiritual development by undergoing
experiences in a succession of material bodies. Spiritual advancement
involves developing love and compassion for all beings, and it also
involves the development of knowledge, intelligence, and psychical
powers. Beings at high levels of spiritual advancement work together
cooperatively in an organized system of universal government. In
contrast, most humans of this earth are regarded as crude barbarians
who are retarded in spiritual development. In addition to the gross
body made of familiar material elements, there is a subtle body made of
finer energies unknown to modern science. There are also different
planes of existence, which can be thought of as parallel or
higher-dimensional realities. These planes are inhabited by humanoid
beings, and some of these beings are able to travel from one plane to
another. Some of these beings can also exert control over the gross and
subtle bodies of human beings, and cause them to move and transform in
remarkable ways. (For example, they can move a human body through a
solid wall.) The life forms in the universe have all come into being
through a process of creation. This process is not clearly explained,
but the basic idea is that there is a universal Creator from whom
living beings are naturally generated. This explains how human-like
forms can arise throughout the universe, even though this seems highly
implausible from the viewpoint of Darwinian evolutionary theory. This
philosophy is pantheistic. The Creator is present everywhere, and acts
everywhere through nature. The Creator is often regarded as impersonal,
and is said to be nearly incomprehensible and inaccessible. At the
highest level, the Creator is regarded as the One--as eternal, nondual
being, full of consciousness, love, and light. It is said that the
evolution of consciousness will eventually bring one to the point of
experiencing the One or of entering into It. This, in brief, is the
philosophy that emerges fully or partially from many UFO
communications, including channeled communications and communications
received in direct encounters with UFO entities. This philosophy
sharply contradicts scientific materialism in many important ways. It
is also far from being alien. It is expounded in a vast human
literature, and it is well known to many people. To me, at least, the
idea that ostensibly non-human beings are promoting this philosophy in
human society was unexpected and astonishing. Nonetheless, there is a
great deal of evidence suggesting that this is happening, and I have
presented some of it in previous chapters. Here I will review some of
this evidence, and introduce some additional material. Then I will make
a few remarks about what this all implies regarding philosophy,
science, and religion.


12.1.1 Transmigration and higher planes

In Chapter 6, I mentioned that the UFO abductee Betty Andreasson spoke
of alien beings as living in other "planes" or dimensions. Thus, when
asked if these beings could travel to other stars, she said they could
travel to some near our earth, and to others beyond. She clarified this
by saying, "Beyond ours there are others, but they are in a different
plane. They're in a heavier space." She also pointed out that they can
see the future, and that "Time to them is not like our time, but they
know about our time."/1/ She reported being conducted through a UFO by
a being of the "Gray" type who identified himself as Quazgaa. This
being told her telepathically about the intentions of his group, saying
that, "because of great love, they cannot let man continue in the
footsteps that he is going...They have technology that man could use...
It is through the spirit,... If Man will study nature itself, he will
find many of the answers... Man will find them through the spirit. Man
is not made of just flesh and blood."/2/ Betty Andreasson is a
Fundamentalist Christian, and thus we might expect her to make remarks
about "love" and "the spirit." However, the idea of a "different
plane," or a "heavier space" does not play any role in traditional
Christian thinking. It turns out that there are also other indications
of a non- Christian source for her alien communications. For example,
on one occasion, it appears that Betty's speech was taken over by her
alien visitors during a hypnotic session. At this point she said, with
mechanical intonation, "You try to seek in wrong directions. Simplicity
'round about you. Air you breath, water you drink, fire that warms,
earth that heals. Simplicity, ashes, things that are necessary taken
for granted. Powers within them overlooked. Why you think you are able
to live? Simplicity."/3/ This statement refers to the elements, air,
water, fire, and earth. These elements are an important part of the
sankhya philosophy of India, of ancient Greek philosophy, and of the
medieval Hermetic traditions. But today they are regarded as outmoded
categories by scientists, and it seems doubtful that Betty Andreasson
was ever taught otherwise in school or in her church. Betty's
experience of the burning of the Phoenix (Section xx) also involved a
theme that is certainly not prominent in Christianity today, but which
was a part of old Egyptian tradition. The idea that there are other
planes or dimensions came up in a rather harrowing fashion in the
experience of a commercial artist and his wife who reported being
mentally lured into a UFO by a tall, hairless man in a bizarre blue
cape (Section 10.3.2). The artist reported being subjected to a typical
examination. In the course of this, his mind was forcefully invaded,
and he received insights into higher dimensions of reality: "It's like
they're picking my mind...like I don't have any control. My brain, it's
like there's a tunnel that goes through my mind to theirs. ... Our
minds are connected. It's like a tube, maybe it's light? It's like a
grey light, grey-brown light, brownish-grey. It's like everything's
being pulled out of my head. ... There's a terrible sound, but I can't
tell what it is--only it's piercing, high pitched. ... It's coming from
my head. My head is gone...it's like I can see all my thoughts, like
goo. Everything in my mind is stripped. I've got it, but they've got it
too."/4/

Then they put it back with additions:

"There's more to it than anybody knows. There's more to life, more to
the world. There's more to everything than anybody knows. More
dimensions, things co-existing. There are other dimensions...more than
three dimensions. Everywhere, it all works together. Everything
co-exists. There's different dimensions we can't go into."/5/

The communications reported by Eduard Meier also contain detailed
references to the soul, reincarnation, and higher planes or dimensions.
His extraterrestrial contact, Semjase, allegedly told him that there is
more to human life than just the body: "Intelligence and knowledge,
even wisdom therefore are not bound only to genes, but are generated by
the spirit inhabiting and animating the respective body of a human
being."/6/ She also maintained that the soul can transmigrate either in
this world or in immaterial, spiritual worlds of graded levels:

"There exist spiritual worlds in rarer dimensions than that in which
you live with your material bodies. In these worlds there live
bodiless, or better, beings with immaterial bodies, beings
who--according to their development--rise in even higher dimensions
with still finer spiritual bodies...they may reincarnate into a
material body in order to take further experience at your density of
being. ... When a person dies his spiritual body escapes to the spirit
world of being where he will stay for some time until he can progress
to a higher dimension still or be reincarnated again."/7/


Meier also said that his contacts, although fully human in form, came
from parallel or other-dimensional realms. One of them, a woman named
Asket, was said to come from a parallel world called the DAL universe.
Likewise, on Erra, Semjase's planet in the Pleiades, "the life and
civilization and all its works exist in a slightly different dimension
and time frame."/8/ Thus if we went there, we wouldn't see its
inhabitants. Meier stated that this is true of the intelligent beings
on Venus also./9/ A Southern Baptist minister in Puerto Rico claimed to
have had many contacts with humanoid beings from the planet Koshnak in
the direction of the constellation of Orion. These beings were very
similar in appearance to the familiar "Gray" entities. They had
melon-shaped, expressionless faces with thin lips, undeveloped noses
and ears, and large wrap-around eyes without pupils. The eyes were were
green with scintillating flashes, and they were said to be intense and
arresting./10/ However, unlike the typical encounters with "Grays,"
this was a classical contactee case. The beings treated the man in a
very friendly way. One of them, who was named Ohneshto, took him on
rides in one of their vehicles, showed him undersea bases on the earth,
and telepathically presented him with long philosophical discourses
about time, space, and the reasons for human existence./11/ This
included references to higher dimensions:

"He said they travel in the seventh and eighth dimensions, unknown to
Earth humans, and that they are aware of 13 dimensions of being.
Ohneshto pointed out references in our Bible pertaining to UFOs. He
said that their normal span of life is about 800 to 1,000 of our years.
... Ohneshto said that the axis of the Earth has changed four times as
far as they have checked this out, that it tilts about every 20 to 25
centuries."/12/

I am including the remark about shifts in the earth's axis since this
is a topic that frequently comes up in UFO communications. It is also
interesting that Ohneshto told the minister that beings from the
Pleiades are visiting the earth./13/ On a later occasion, the minister
saw a small UFO and received a telepathic communication that a picture
of it would be found in Wendelle Stevens' book, UFO...Contact from the
Pleiades./14/ Taken literally, this would seem to connect this case
with the Meier case in Switzerland. Is this story just a lie? Or do
Meier's Pleiadians have connections with Ohneshto's people? It is often
hard to know how to evaluate such correlations, but I mention them
because they do show up regularly in UFO reports. This case was similar
in many ways to the case of Filiberto Cardenas discussed in Section
5.2. There also, the contacting entities spoke of other dimensions.
Cardenas testified that during a voluntary visit on one of their ships,
they told him that, "they are beings of other dimensions, of other
worlds, but that they are not gods, and they do not want to be
considered such."/15/


12.1.2 Pantheism and impersonalism

In Chapter 11, I discussed the extensive material linking UFO
encounters with out-of-body experiences. There I also noted that the
U.S. government has allegedly hosted an "Extraterrestrial Biological
Entity" or EBE, who stated that reincarnation is real and that, "It's
the machinery of the universe."

On Oct. 14, 1988 a television documentary entitled "UFOS:

Government Coverup--Live" was broadcast across the United States. This
show presented testimony by a supposed U.S. intelligence agent named
Falcon, who made numerous statements about EBE and his race of beings.
When asked if these aliens believe in a Supreme Being, Falcon answered,
"They have a religion, but it's a universal religion. They believe in
the universe as a Supreme Being." The EBE stories, of course, are tied
in with a complex mass of allegations regarding UFO cover-ups,
government conspiracies, and disinformation (Section 3.5.4). They have
a rather sinister tone, and they include the story that the EBEs
created Jesus Christ./16/ Since Christ is worshipped by Christians as a
personal God, it would seem that whoever is behind the EBE stories has
some interest in undermining personal theism and replacing it with
pantheism. A negative aspect can also be seen in other UFO
communications that convey an impersonal, pantheistic conception of
God. For example, the psychic Robert Monroe, known for his
investigations of out-of-body travel, reported the following experience
with a mysterious beam of radiation that seemed to emanate from a point
in the sky:

"I suddenly felt bathed in and transfixed by a very powerful beam that
seemed to come from the North, about 30 degrees above the horizon. I
was completely powerless, with no will of my own, and I felt as if I
were in the presence of a very strong force, in personal contact with
it. It had intelligence of a form beyond my comprehension, and it came
directly (down the beam?) into my head, and it seemed to be searching
every memory in my mind. I was truly frightened because I was powerless
to do anything about this intrusion."/17/

Jacques Vallee compared Monroe's beam with the beams of light shown in
religious art carrying revelations from God. It is interesting that
during one of its appearances, the beam conveyed a very cold,
impersonal concept of God to Monroe. This was so overpowering that it
caused Monroe to weep bitterly. He said, "then I knew without
qualification or future hope of change that the God of my childhood, of
the churches, of religion throughout the world was not as we worshipped
him to be."/18/ Monroe had apparently been thinking of God as a person
who might show concern for an individual worshiper. But whoever was
responsible for the beam went to the trouble of disabusing him of this
concept.

By the way, beams from the sky that probe people's minds date back at
least to the early 1950s in UFO contact reports. For example, in
Section 6.3.3, I recounted a story by George Hunt Williamson about how
beings communicating from outer space tried to probe the mind of the
elderly father-in-law of his friend, Mr. R. Shortly after this, a
14-year-old neighborhood boy named Ronnie Tucker reported having a
dream in which he saw "a beam of light about one foot wide, and tubular
in shape, misty white, coming from far out in space and going directly
into that part of Mr. R's home where his father-in-law was
sleeping."/19/ This occurred on the night of the mind probe. The Meier
case is another instance in which ostensibly extraterrestrial beings
try to convince earth people that God is impersonal. According to
Semjase, "Above everything one alone possesses the power of life and
death over each creature. That is CREATION alone, which regulates the
laws over all, laws which are irrefutable and of their own eternal
validity."/20/ Semjase strongly emphasized that there is no personal
Creator, and that the supreme Creation is strictly impersonal. She
maintained that religions devoted to an anthropomorphic God have had a
detrimental effect on the human spirit, and she told Meier that his
mission is to "bring this truth to the light of the world."/21/ The
philosophy presented by Semjase is very similar to the atheistic
sankhya philosophy of India. In this school of philosophy, it is
understood that there are two basic ingredients making up the universe:
prakriti, or matter, and purusha, the living beings. Prakriti operates
according to inherent laws, and thus it is comparable to matter and
energy as understood in modern physics. However, the subcategories of
prakriti include subtle and etheric types of energy unknown to
present-day physicists. The living beings are particles of
consciousness embedded within the matrix of prakriti. Each conscious
being is situated within gross and subtle bodily coverings made of
prakriti, and all of these beings transmigrate from from one gross body
to another in accordance with universal laws. Living beings can also
operate within bodies of purely subtle energy. This can be compared
with Semjase's philosophy, which features souls in bodies produced by
the laws of Creation. The atheistic sankhya philosophy is so named
because it denies the existence of a supreme personal controller of the
universe, and it maintains that prakriti and its laws are supreme. In
contrast, the Bhagavad-gita, Bhagavata Purana, and other important
Vedic works expound what is known as the theistic sankhya philosophy.
In the theistic system, both prakriti and the conscious living beings
are understood to be energetic emanations from an eternal, conscious
Supreme Person. In India there is a long standing controversy between
those who regard the Supreme Being as an impersonal power, and those
who regard the Supreme as a transcendental person. Although I could not
begin to do justice to this topic here, I will mention one interesting
point which arises in the philosophy of Semjase. She pointed out that
the Cosmic laws governing the Creation are not like the laws of
physics, with their impersonal forces and charges. Even though the
Creation is impersonal, its laws are personal in nature. Thus Semjase
said that real spiritual people don't pray for needs. They know that
"because of the almighty spirit in themselves, they will get what they
need, and besides, all they want, as long as it is according to the
Cosmic Law of love to all."/22/ Now love is something having to do with
persons. If the Cosmic Law is impersonal in nature, then how is it that
it is based on love? Note that this problem does not come up in modern
scientific theories. According to modern science, love is simply a
recent outgrowth of hominid evolution in Africa, and it has nothing to
do with Cosmic Law. But if the personal quality of love is built into
Cosmic Law, then it is natural to ask why. If there is a transcendental
person behind the Cosmic Law, then the answer is that the law was
crafted according to the loving intentions of that person. Semjase also
explained how matter and energy are produced in the Creation: "Energy
is the result of idea. ... This goes back to original creation itself,
being the first energy born from idea. Then the forces of Spirit
concentrate this idea/energy of high vibration and when the vibration
is lowered, matter results."/23/ Here the question is: If the Creation
is an impersonal force, then does it make sense to say that it has
ideas? Ideas are normally associated with a conscious being. The
philosophical points brought up by Semjase are certainly not new in
human society, and one wonders where Meier really got them. All of
these points are well known in India, and Meier is known to have spent
time there. It could be that he was simply expounding from the mouth of
Semjase ideas he picked up in India. Or it might be that he really did
have an extraordinary visitor who taught him these things. There is a
precedent for this. In Section 5.3, I related the story of how Alice
Bailey wrote books that were dictated to her telepathically by "the
Tibetan," a human mystic and occult adept who was living in Tibet. The
Tibetan expounded an extremely complex metaphysical system in which the
Supreme Being is known as "He About Whom Naught May Be Said." He also
said that the Masters in his group were trying to "shatter the
materialism of the west on the one hand and on the other the
sentimental devotion of many devotees of all faiths."/24/ Highly
elaborate communications like Meier's are suspect because their very
complexity indicates that someone with strong motives is behind them.
That someone could be either a determined hoaxer or an actual visiting
entity (who might also be a determined hoaxer). However, there are
relatively uncomplicated humanoid encounters in which pantheistic
theological comments are made. For example, strange entities made
theological remarks to a twenty-five year old man in July, 1968 at the
Grodner pass in the Italian Dolomites. He met tall, thin beings with
domed heads and beautiful Oriental eyes who were accompanied by a small
robot. They telepathically told him, "We come from a planet in a far
galaxy," and "Everything is God." They also warned that a pole shift is
coming, the earth's crust will crack, and life will be in great
danger./25/ Here the parallels with the Meier case are: pantheistic
theology, the use of robots, and warnings about shifts in the earth's
axis. Another theological revelation was given to Mrs. Cynthia
Appleton, a 27-year-old mother of two children, living at Aston in
Birmingham, England. At 3 p.m. on Nov. 18, 1957, she was about to check
on her baby daughter. Suddenly she sensed an oppressiveness, like that
preceding a thunderstorm, and saw a "man" materialize with a whistling
noise near the fireplace. This apparition was initially blurry, and
then clear. He was tall and fair, with a tight fitting plastic-like
garment, featuring an "Elizabethan" collar. He answered her questions
telepathically, revealing that he had come from a world of peace and
harmony in a saucer-type craft. He was able to convey a picture of this
in a mysterious fashion. On a second occasion two similar figures spoke
to her in a strange style of English, and informed her that they were
projections and should not be touched. One point they made was that
"the Deity itself dwells at the heart and core of the atom." It is said
that there were no books in Mrs. Appleton's house-- only newspapers.
Those who interviewed her described her as a pleasant and sincere young
woman./26/ Although this statement about the Deity may seem to be
another pantheistic statement, it may also have a deeper meaning. In
the Brahma-samhita it is said that God dwells within each atom
(Sanskrit, paramanu or smallest particle), and innumerable universes
simultaneously exist within God./27/ Here the idea is that God is a
Supreme Person who is distinct from the universal manifestation, and at
the same time is fully present within every particle of matter.


12.1.3 Brahman realization

In Section 11.1.1, I recounted a UFO abduction in which Betty
Andreasson was brought to a huge Door in an underground complex. At
that point she went out of her body, passed through the Door, and had
an experience of meeting the One. This experience created great
happiness, but she was unable to explain it:

Betty: "It's--words cannot explain it. It's wonderful. It's for everybody. I just can't tell you this."

Fred Max: "You can't? Okay, why can't you?"

Betty: "For one thing, it's too overwhelming and it is...it is
undescribable. I just can't tell you. Besides, it's just impossible for
me to tell you." Fred Max: "Were you told not to share it with me?"/28/

It seems doubtful that this testimony was evoked by leading questions
from the hypnotist, Fred Max. He seemed to think that Betty could not
describe her experience because the aliens were controlling her mind--a
standard idea among investigators of UFO abductions. However, it seems
clear that she could not describe the experience because it was
literally beyond words. A standard method of trying to get around
mental blocks inhibiting a person's memory is to ask the person, while
under hypnosis, to visualize the blocked experience as though seeing it
on TV. When this was tried with her experience of seeing the One, Betty
responded by saying:

"Ohhh! There's a bright light coming out of the television! This is
weird! There's rays of light, bright white light, just [pause] like
they've got a spotlight coming out of the television! It's hurting my
eyes!"/29/

In Vedic literature, Brahman is spoken of as an indescribable white
light that is characterized by oneness, eternity, and unlimited
happiness. The UFO investigators who were interviewing Betty Andreasson
did not seem to know about this, and it seems probable that she also
did not know about it. Realization of ultimate oneness is described by
Catholic mystics such as Meister Eckhart, but it does not generally
figure in fundamentalist Protestant traditions. It seems quite likely
that her experience of the One actually took place. Philosophical ideas
regarding the One were presented by the "Ra" entity in channeled
communications received by Carla Rueckert (Sections 6.3.1-2). Ra
claimed to be a telepathically linked complex of beings that had once
lived on a higher dimensional level on Venus, and that had communicated
monotheistic ideas to the Pharaoh Ikhnaton in ancient Egypt./30/ Now,
however, the concern of Ra is to merge with the One, and teach others
about this possibility. Thus Ra says, "We cannot say what is beyond
this dissolution of the unified self with all that there is, for we
still seek to become all that there is, and still we are Ra. Thus our
paths go onward."/31/ In India there is a famous philosophical school
called advaita vedanta, which teaches that the ultimate goal is merge
the individual ego into the one Brahman. This school follows the Vedic
teachings, and thus it maintains that there is a celestial hierarchy of
inhabited realms, and that souls transmigrate through gross and subtle
forms in these realms. But it also holds that at the ultimate level of
understanding, all of these realms are illusory, and nothing exists but
the One Consciousness, or Brahman. Thus ultimate understanding means to
become identical with Brahman, which is all that is. This philosophy is
very similar to the atheistic sankhya philosophy. In the latter, the
mahat-tattva, or ultimate substrate of matter, is held to be the
ultimate cause. But this ultimate substrate is not like dead matter as
we know it. Rather, "the mahat-tattva is the total consciousness
because a portion of it is represented in everyone as the
intellect."/32/ Thus the mahat-tattva is conceptually similar to
Brahman. The two philosophies differ mainly in emphasis. The atheistic
sankhya philosophy appeals to a person who wishes to make progress in
material life in a way harmonious with universal law. In contrast, the
philosophy of advaita vedanta appeals to one who wishes to abandon
material life and merge into the absolute. In fact, the goal of the
Pleiadians, as presented by Meier, is to live an advanced material life
by obeying Cosmic Law, while the aim of Ra is to attain ultimate
Oneness. However, there is more to Indian philosophy than just the
schools of atheistic sankhya and advaita vedanta. According to Vaisnava
philosophy, Brahman is the effulgence of the transcendental body of the
Supreme Lord, and it forms the atmosphere of the spiritual world.
Brahman realization is simply the starting point of higher spiritual
experience. Here is a description from the Bhagavata Purana of a
journey by Arjuna and Krishna into Brahman and beyond:

"Following the Sudarsana disc, the chariot went beyond the darkness and
reached the endless spiritual light of the all- pervasive brahma-jyoti.
As Arjuna beheld this glaring effulgence, his eyes hurt, and so he shut
them. "From that region they entered a body of water resplendent with
huge waves being churned by a mighty wind. Within that ocean Arjuna saw
an amazing palace more radiant than anything he had ever seen before.
Its beauty was enhanced by thousands of ornamental pillars bedecked
with brilliant gems. "In that palace was the huge, awe-inspiring
serpent Ananta Sesa. He shone brilliantly with radiance emanating from
the gems on His thousands of hoods and reflecting from twice as many
fearsome eyes. He resembled white Mount Kailasa, and His necks and
tongues were dark blue. "Arjuna then saw the omnipresent and omnipotent
Supreme Personality of Godhead, Maha-Visnu, sitting at ease on the
serpent bed. His bluish complexion was the color of a dense rain-cloud,
He wore a beautiful yellow garment, His face looked charming, His broad
eyes were most attractive, and He had eight arms. His profuse locks of
hair were bathed on all sides in the brilliance reflected from clusters
of precious jewels decorating his crown and earrings. He wore the
Kaustubha gem, the mark of Srivatsa and a garland of forest flowers.
"Serving that topmost of all Lords were His personal attendants headed
by Nanda and Sunanda; His cakra and other weapons in their personified
forms; His consort potencies Pusti, Sri, Kirti, and Aja; and all His
various mystic powers."/33/

Here the word brahma-jyoti means Brahman effulgence. The potency called
Aja is the energy of material creation. The understanding is that this
scene lies completely beyond the material realm. If the brahma-jyoti is
simply the atmosphere of a higher spiritual region then, to paraphrase
Ra, there is something beyond the dissolution of the unified self with
all that is. According to the Vaisnava philosophy, once the bondage of
material ego is dissolved, the soul becomes free to act on a purely
spiritual platform. Since the soul emanates from the Supreme Being,
there is a natural relationship of love between the soul and the
Supreme. This natural love is obscured when the soul is in a state of
material consciousness. When the soul attains to Brahman, it reaches a
neutral state, and its natural loving tendency is manifest without an
object. In the pure spiritual realm, this love becomes expressed in the
form of service to the transcendental Supreme Lord. It is also
expressed in the form of compassion towards souls in material bondage,
who are all parts and parcels of the Lord, but are lost in
forgetfulness./34/ The three children who received the revelations at
Fatima also had what appears to be an experience of the brahma-jyoti.
After the initial conversation between the children and the effulgent
lady, "she opened her hands and streams of intense light flowed from
them which overwhelmed the children's souls, causing them to feel 'lost
in God' Whom they recognized in that light."/35/ This description makes
sense from the Vedic standpoint, and it also illustrates the idea that
a higher being can cause a more or less ordinary human to have a
temporary experience of Brahman. Something similar seems to have
happened in the Andreasson case. Not to be outdone, Eduard Meier also
recounted an experience of Brahman realization. According to him, this
happened when a Pleiadian spaceship on which he was traveling made a
leap from one universe to another, and entered a state beyond space and
time between the two universes. Here is how he described the experience:

"Suddenly all is merging into a golden color, and now everything is
like silver. But--my dear--this glistening light, this beaming shining
splendor! Everything is merged into glistening light... It is stronger
than all the suns of the Universe... Dear, this must be eternity, the
glistening light of the eternal... This tranquillity, this peace--what
is it? How could I have achieved this? Love, oh that deep all
encompassing love. Nothing is there, but LOVE: wonderful,
marvelous."/36/

It is clear that Meier was talking about Brahman realization in this
passage. After his experience, he was told by Semjase that one cannot
enter permanently into that state of consciousness unless one has
evolved to an advanced spiritual level. This is certainly in agreement
with Vedic philosophy, and the question, as always with Meier, is
whether his account is genuine, or was cleverly contrived.
